In it he refuted the idea that 'It is time for a, change.

"Hence the Student Party be came very concerned and under th lenrierchin nt Sonnv Fvan nnrf Don Furtado has introduced the Jury System." He touched on the parking pro blem by saying: "With the comple tion of the Boll Tower Parking lot. this problem has been greatly alleviated. This too was due to the competent leadership of the exe cutive branch. "For many years the students have wanted a rebate on their moh-j ey spent in the Book Ex and in! vending machines.

They can express their faith in continued progress by electing Don Furtado student body president." Sunny Hallford began by say ing "Don Furtado is one of the best qualified candidates for the presidency of the student body ap pearing on the campus political scene in years. "He is a fast, independent think er who has a thorough understand ing of Student Government and campus problems. The Student Party pledges to support Don and his program 100 per cent during the coming year. Don's wisdom has been demonstrated by his proven ability to distinguish between cri tical campjs problems and triviali ties in his recent debates with the opposition. "One of the real problems facing student government next year is that of proving the need for a new Student Union and of helping Mr. Henry become acquainted with the Carolina method of student admin istered activities. Don Furtado has served on the Board of Directors of Graham Memorial for two years and was a member of a special del egation that visited Mr. Henry, the new director of Graham Memorial, and which recommended him for the directorship. Don is most quali fied to lead in solving this all campus challenge.

Cooperation Needed Declares Goldsmith Al Goldsmith, University Party candidate for student body president, cited the need for a vigorous jrhief executive and a unified administra- i tion "to solve the pressing problems ot the campus in his final statement Saturday before Tuesday's balloting. "If student government is to keep up with the needs of the stu dents and the rapid growth of. this University there must be a change to a more vigorous and realistic ad ministration." began Goldsmith.

Luann Thornton, personnel ad visor to women, said that the rules are not yet in final form and will have to have the approval of the De3n of Women's office when they are in final form. Dean of Women Katherine Car michael and Miss Thornton clari Sing Follows Fleece Seventeen campus organizations will perform in the annual Val kyrie Sing Monday night in Me morial Hall. The Sing will immedi ately follow the tapping of new members into the Golden Fleece honorary society which gets under way at 7 p.m. Twelve o'clock permission has been extended to Coeds in case the Sing continues beyond regular closing hours. According to Peggy Funk, chair man of the Valkyrie Sing, this year's number of entries is a con siderable increase over previous years. "It is probably due to the change in the make-up of the Sing," she explained. This year the Sing is divided into two subdivisions: a musical skit division and a sing division. Twelve campus organizations are entering the sing division, whereas only Orientation Commrrt Preparing For 2200 I The Orientation Committee under j the direction of Herman Godwin and j Katie Stewart is currently working towards making arrangements for I the 1800 new undergraduates and j 400 graduate students, who will be j coming to Chapel Hill for the first ; time in the fall. j At the present time, the big job for the Orientation Committee is J the selection of the 150 counselors i needed .to successfully complete the I men's program. Monday is the final ' date for applications to be turned I in. The women's counselors have ' n 1 ro i H v w n cnlnrtoH nnH nm nmv planning for their phase of the orien tation program. On Tuesday night, a test will be I given to all applicants in Room 268 Venable. Study manuals for this exam are now available in Graham Memorial and the Library.

Opposition To New Coed Rules Expressed By Student Leaders Present President of the Student Body Sonny Evans, candidates for president Don Furtado and Al Gold smith, and chairman of the Uni- fied two points about the rules. These rules will take effect for both freshman coeds and freshman nur sing students. Miss Carmichael said that she felt that this would bring about some uniformity on freshman rules throughout the campus. The second point that was clarified (See COED RULES, page 2) five are entering the musical skit. Another change from previous years is that there are more men's organizations entering than previ ously. The Valkyries, senior honorary organization for women, recognizes women students "most outstandnig in character and achievement, with the number selected each year not exceeding two per cent of the wo men enrolled.". Outside or their in ternal activity, this is their big public program of the year. Those groups entering the com petition this year are the Air Force ROTC, Delta Sigma Pi, Delta Upsilon, Sigma Chi, Sigma Nu, Al pha GammaDelta, Chi Omega, Del ta Delta Delta, Kappa Kappa Gam ma, Alpha Delta Pi and Kappa Del- j ta. ' Dormitories entering are Ruffin, Mangum, Manly and Smith. One of the big projects of the committee has been sending out letters to all of the new students in which is explained some of the "Carolina way of life" and some thing of the orientation program presented in the fall. As in jast years, Sam Magill is serving as the Orientation coordina tor. Godwin stated that "so far the program has been successful. Our committee, which has been increas ed in size due to the larger scope of the program, is functioning well.' Godwin is a junior and a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. He has been active in many campus activities here at Carolina including being a class officer, secretary of the Carolina Symposium and a mem ber of the Order of the Grail. Miss Stewart is from Norfolk, Va. She is a junior and a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. She is on the Women's Residence Council, a member of the Angel Flight and the Foreign Exchange Committee. Military Pay Hike Possible A bill now before Congress to make military careers more attrac tive by hiking the pay will be, if passed, right in line with the Reserve-Officers Training program in colleges. While ROTC students will not re ceive any direct benefits from the pay raise, they will be, upon grad uation, higher paid. This may even tually increase enrollment in ROTC units, which are looking more and more for career men. At least this seems to be the main objective now for ROTC units at UNC. At UNC the Air Force unit was established in 1947 .about the time the Air Force became a separate branch of the- armed forces. "The prime objective then, "says Air Sci ence Professor Lt. Col. F. W. Swann, "was to train reserve officers and to provide a source of commission ed personnel if we had a war." versity Party Syd Shuford spoke out yesterday against the new rules for Freshman women scheduled to be instituted this fall. Evans said he doesn't "believe that rules ought to be made unless there is a situation existing-which realistically demands restrictions. It is my opinion, according to the in formation already gathered, that the admission standards for freshman women are such that forced study rules are both unnecessary and in consistent. "Since I don't think that freshman women ought to have separate rules, I can see no reason for segregating them since much of their develop ment and maturity depends on their association with the oider girls. Furtado, in disagreeing with the change in rules, said, "My first re action to the proposed plan is un favorable. I don't believe in differ entiating between college students merely because of their class sta tus. However, I have not yet had an opportunity to discuss the new plan with Lillian Shannonhouse, Julia Ann Crater, or Dean Carmichael. It is Fleecennien monies By AL RESCH The Order of the iolden Fleece, highest men's' honorary organiza tion on the UNC campus, -will hold its annual public tapping ceremony tomorrow at 7 p.m. in Memorial Hall. The Golden Fleece, selects men from the junior class or above for their ' "highest qualifications in character, ability, achievement and leadership." The names of those students to be tapped will remain a secret until they are chosen to morrow night. The second oldest collegiate hon orary organization for men in the United States, the Fleece celebrat es its 55th anniversary with the tapping ceremony.: The Skull and Bones at Yale is the oldest men's honor group on a college campus. The service includes a reading on Jason's search for the Golden Fleece and the revealing of offi cers who have led the Order dur- ' X .

' Candidate Goldsmith commented, "I do not like the new freshman women's rules as they now exist. While recognizing the concern of the University over the scholastic performance of freshmen women, I do not feel these changes will com pletely solve the problem but will create more problems. "Under the new rules freshmen women will be able to attend only one campus function a week. This rule alone will make it impossible for most freshmen to attend politi cal party meetings, concerts, and lectures which are so much a part of a Carolina education. " "For example, if the Carolina Symposium were to be held in the fall no freshman women could at tend more than one session. In the spring those girls without C aver ages could not be present more than (See RULES, page 3) Conduct Tomorrow ing the past year.

Though the actual service will begin at 7:15 p.m., the doors will be locked at 7 o'clock and no one will be admitted until after the ceremony. Thirty persons were tapped in last year's program, the largest number to be so honored in the or ganization's history. This brings the total to 613 men who have been singled out from their classmates for tapping. . .. . .
