At Least Three Carolina Lovelies
Trying For Miss Chapel Hill Title
Carolina ladies are renewing the
struggle against the rumor pass
ed around by Carolina gentlemen
that there is more than a little
wanting in coed pulchritude.
And the coeds are entering the
battle with weapons that stand a
good chance of making liars out
of the men students. So far three
women students are seeking the
titl? of Miss Chapel Hid in the
local eliminations for the Miss
America Pageant. (
According to Roland Giduz of the
Junior Chamber of . Commerce,
there wil probably be meor in
the race before the contest closes.

held here a week from Thursday
on April 24 at 8 p.m. in the Chap

As revealed Tuesday 84 per cent
of those women tapped in the poll
felt that the new rules needed re
vision. The prime points of contention
were the rules which dealt with

opposed to limiting weekend per

Will Not Hear
In its meeting Tuesday night the
Women's Residence Council recon
sidered at length its previous ac
tion on rules changes for fresh
men women entering the Univer
sity. It was specifically the contro
versy aroused by the proposed
changes that led the Council to
hold another meeting on them.
The major part of the meeting
was spent in "re-evaluation" of the
changes, but no concrete action
wasjtaken. The Council plans to
continue sampling campus opinion
among the residents of the wom
en's dorms in an attempt to find
out how the women feel about the
The reason given for this ap
proach was that the rules were
originally formulated by the out
going members of the Council,
and that therefore the new mem
bers, who just took office, arc not
well acquainted with the back
ground of the changes.
At one time during the meeting
there was a motion on the floor
to allow a group of opposition
women to speak before the WRC
on their objections to the changes.
The motion was defeated by the
members of the Council, and the
opposition women were not al
lowed to speak. It is expected that
some final action will be taken on
the rules changes
