STAFF ENLARGED School rain What is the University doing to train more and better teachers for the public school system in the face o( the swelling enrollments? One answer was provided this week by Dean Arnold Perry of the University's School of Education. The School of Education is being strengthened. More students are go ing into teaching. Dean Perry an nounced today three new additions to the faculty, aside from the ap pointment of Dr. Ben Fountain of Itocky Mount some weeks ago. Dean Perry revealed that under graduate enrollment in the School of Education here has increased 40 per cent since 1955. An additional ten per cent increase is expected with the enrollment here this week. Also on the rise is the number of part-time students doing graduate work or taking post-baccalaureate work to complete requirements for teaching certificates in North Caro lina and other states. Part-time enrollment has jumped 27 per cent in four years, and an other five per cent increase is pre dicted for 1953-59. Continued growth for several years is expectel because of the strong demands for teachers, Perry said. "For the past decade the demand for elementary ' school teachers has been exceedingly high and the State of North Carolina has reached each new school year with a shortage of more than a 1,000 fully qualified Of lo Ex tm Public To See Art Museum After Ceremony The public will get its first look at the William Hayes Ackland Me morial Art Center here tomorrow following formal dedication cere monies. On display will be an exhibition of paintings, sculpture and other art loaned by collegiate galleries throughout the country. Edson B. Olds of Washington, a friend of Ackland and a trustee of his estate, will present the building to the University. William D. Carmichael Jr., vice president of the Consolidated Uni versity, will make the acceptance speech. S. Lane Faison Jr:, director of the Lawrence Art Museum of Wil liams College at Williamston. Mass., will give the dedication ad dress. Present for the ceremonies will be state officials, legislators, university trustees, leaders of the art world, and other guests. Ackland will be buried in a me morial room in the Art Center. It also will include galleries and fa cilities for thet university's art de partment. Social Rooms To Be Open In Men's Dorms Saturday Social rooms in eight men's dorm itories will be open Saturday to all guests. The opening of social rooms has been seldom done in the past but may become more frequent in the future, pending the results of Sat urday's large-scale experiment, ac cording to Student Body President Don Furtado. The move for opening the eight social rooms came yesterday at a meetisg of Miss Katherine Car michael, dean of women; Sam Ma gill, assistant dean of student af- (See SOCIAL, Page 3) A ducation Strengthened r More School Teachers teachers. "During the next six years the most acute shortage will apparently be in the junior and senior high schools as the children bom im mediately following the close of Worll War II are now of junior high school age," he continued.. "Each year for the next six years there will be an increase in the demand for teachers prepared for junior high school work and the variols subject departments in the North Carolina high schools. NEW STAFFMEMBERS Joining the UNC staff to help meet .the teacher demand are four new staff members: JUiss Annie Lee Jones, Neal II. Tracy, James F. Rogers, and Ben E. Fountain Jr. (Miss Jones, a native of Aurora in Beaufort County, has' been at Bos ton University completing her doc toral studies in education. She has held public school teaching and supervisory posts in several eastern N.C. counties.

News Leader PTioto Medical School Money To Help In Research Carolina's School of Medicine has received a $186,000 grant en abling it to establish a new re search program for the next five years, Dean W. Reece Berryill has announced. School professors' recent discov eries pointing to allergic and in fectious processes as factors caus ing major heart and kidney di seases led to the grant. The sum was awarded by the Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the National Institutes of Health. It will support an ex panded program of .study in mi crobiology and the related clinical fields of allergy and infectious disease. Director of the new research will be Dr. William J. Cromartie, associate professor of medicine and fective efforts to develop ways to I respectively. Tracy will work in the field of educational administration, and in an improvement program for secondary school mathematics teach ing. Rogers will 'assist in the Edu cation School's graduate centers as well as work in the school adminis trators program. EMPHASIS Passage in late Augjst of the Na tional Defense Education Act of 1958 by the National Congress fore casts still greater emphasis upon teacher education in order that the programs in science, mathematics foreign language and guidance may be strengthened in the public schools, Dean Perry noted. The staff of the School of Educa tion at Carolina has been studying the new Defense Act. for the past three weeks and is making plans to take care of increals;d enrollments number of fellowship; and the sub that will be assured ' by the large Lantial 'stipends to 'be paid from federal funds for stuients who are working in various filds covered by the National Defense Education Act. Special emphasis i$ being placed upon the graduate offerings in die School of Education. Since the doc- j toral proeram in Education was started slightly over 30 years ago, more than 100 students have com pleted doctoral programs and are now placed in .responsible adminis tratvie positions and college teach ing positions in some of the best institutions in the Uaited States. A One bacteriology. The program will provide post doctoral fellowships and fulltime residencies for students wishing to specialize in these fields. "We need many more individu als trained in the basic'science of microbiology and the clinical fields of allergy and infectious di seases, Dr. Cromartie said, "if ef treat and control these important diseases are to be made." Participating in the program as teachers andor researchers in ad dition to Cromartie are faculty members Dr. D. A. MacPherson, chairman fo the Bacteriology De partment; Dr. Edward C. Currien, chairman of hte Pediatrics Depart ment;and Dr. Charles II. Burnett, chairman of the Department of Medicine; and specialists in seven fields. few are holding important adminis trative positions in international edu cation. Four years ago the University started a program for the develop ment of graduate centers in Edu cation. One is sow in operation in Charlotte with an average enroll ment exceeding 100. A similar grad uate center is in operation in Goldsboro and plans are underway for programs of this nature in High Point and Fayetteville. Under the direction of Prof. Guy B. Phillips, former dean of the School of Education 'and until 1953 director of the summer school, the field services program is being con siderably expanded to include study groups for superintendents, assistant superintendents and supervisors. Included will be a special program for junior high tschool principals to meet the need for improved leader ship in this rapidly growing par t of the North Carolina public school system. An important part of the work of the School of Education has to do with the training of school adminis trators. A considerable portion of this work has been financed in recent years by a grant from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. In this program the School of Education has worked in cooperation with other schools m the southern . region through the Kellogg Cooperative Program in Educational Adminis ti ation. How Million 0 H n oiiaavea rumversiry perationa tea! $62,700 Grant For Psychology Is Announced Psychological research at the University has been given a boost by a $62,700 grant from the Na tional Science Foundation, Psy chometric Laboratory Director Dr. Lyle V. Jones has announced. The ward will facilitate research to be conducted during a five year period, Dr. Jones explained. Stu died wil be methods for measuring and analyzing simultaneously a number of different psychological traits and characteristics. The new program constitutes part of a series of recent research projects undertaken by the Psy chometric Lab staff members. Among others are (1) the revision of group tests in reading compre hension from the fourth grade to the superior adult level; (2) the recording of test scores in prim ary mental abilities, reading, arith metics, and spelling of children age six and later at age nine in or der to predict academic success in school; (3) The study of the pattern of growth and subsequent decline of mental abilities with advancing age; and (4) the analysis of 150 pairs of identical and fraternal twins with a number ofpsy chologi-; cal tests and physical measure ments to make a "twin diagnosis.'" OTHER STUDIES' Four other major studies are currently underway at the lab. Two are financed by governmental agencies, one dealing with pre ference for food combinations and the other with acceptance of cer tain clothing and equipment items by Army enlisted men. The other two are concerned with aphasia, the partial or total loss of speech due to brain mal function. Lab staff members include Dr. Thomas E. Jeffrey, Dr. R. Darrell Bock and Dr. Emir H. Shuford, as sistant professors; Dr. Dorothy C. Adkins, professor and head of the Department of Psychology; and Dr. Jhelma G. Thurstone, professor of education. A National Science Foundation post-doctoral fellow, Dr. John E. Overall, is also associated with the 1 Lab. INFIRMARY Students in the Infirmary yes terday included Frank W.

A. H. Shepard, business officer and treasurer, said the budget also called for a $4,893,175 increase in the io(o-(ii Textile Study Funds Asked By N. C. State RALEIGH i? The Advisory Budget Commission was asked Thursday to approve a new textile research program and a two-year, non-degree technical course in ag riculture at North Carolina State College. The proposed textile research pro gram calls for $159,780 each year of the 1959-61 biennium. The request for the two-year agriculture course is for $24,550 the first year of the biennium and $49,833 the second. Dr. Carey H. Bostian, State Ccl - lege chancellor, told tlie commis sion the new program is basic and pioneering textile research "would leap enormous benefits from the amount involved." About $500,00 a year is being spent at State College on applied textile research. Bostian pointed out that approximately $2,800,00,000 worth of textile goods are manufac tured in North Carolina each year. The proposed new program would be closely allied with the teaching end graduate education programs cf the State College School of Tex tiles and with the present industry-supported applied research pro gram. I Bostian said the new two-year ag ricultural course would be taught in separate classes from the 4-year students and by teachers especially qualified for this type of instruction. In addition to farming, graduates could qualify for work in hatcheries, food service, processing plants, dairy plants, greenhouses, fertilizer plants, farm retail stores, and other farm related busisess. WC Requests $193,578 For Biennium RALEIGH W Chancellor Gor don W. Blackwell of Woman's Col lege said today $193,578 is needed by the school during the next bien nium to restore budget reductions due to receipts deficiencies. He told the Advisory Budget Com mission $90356 is needed the first year and the $103,222 the second year "to correct for errors in re ceipts estimates in the past." Blackwell said that over the past years "they have been projecting receipts of about $30,000 more than they could realize." The receipts, he explained, are from student fees. The college is affecting a saving this year by not filling staff va cancies, he said. Burglar Takes Food At Fraternity House Chapel Hill Police today were looking for a well-fed burglar who got plenty of staple edibles last night at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house on South Colum bia St. Fraternity officers reported that the following items were taken from the kitchen at the house: 23 pounds of butter, 10 pounds of cheese, 35 pounds of sugar, nin? dozen eggs, a gallon of mayon naise, a dozen heads of lettuce, and 10 pounds of tomatoes. They val ued the stolen &oods at $34.50. xpenses uuugei over lt-xio-oy s ngure oi $19,015,505. The Commission was asked to approve salary increases of $4,749, 132 for UNC during the next bien nium to maintain and strengthen good teaching. Consolidated University Presi dent William C. Friday told the commission, "We have made good progress in our salary program but more must be done if we are to meet the problems before us." Salary increases are "our first priority throughout the university in the "B" budget," Friday said. The State Board of Higher Edu cation has recommended salary increases of $2,700,000 for the bien nium. This figure, however, did not include academic staff personnel 1 such as librarians, administrators etc. The president pointed out that the university was among the ton 40 in the nation. He added that in order for the university to stay on a high level, the faculty salaries must be increased. Although President Friday stressed the needed hike in facul ty, salaries, he briefly discussed research piograms, library servic es and service functions (extension department and adult education). Friday strongly endorsed "the principle of flexibility in the hand ling" of instituiional budgets. We can make a much more efficient and wiser use of our time and of the resources entrusted to us if we have the flexibility to place them where the need appears greatest." Each of the three universities, Carolina, Woman's College and N. C. State College, spoke on the needs of their individual college. Shepard said the Advisory Bud get Commission earlier asked for a delay in requests for capital im provements. Ho said this budget would probably be released some time in October. New Dorms Free Steele The addition cf 727 new dormi tory rooms at Chapel Hill has freed Steel building on the campus for administrative use beginning this year, according to Chancellor Wil liam B. Aycock and J. Arthur Branch, business manager. Formerly housing students, Steele is undergoing minor altera tions enabling it to handle account ing, personnel, purchasing and pay roll activities. According to uni versity officials, centralization in Steele will effect more efficient and economical operations of facil ities formerly scattered through out the campus. B"uilt in 1922, Steele has housed 72 students annually for some time. However, plans for relocat ing the several administrative of fices has been under consideration for a number of years and the transformation will bring the plans into being. Approximately 60 University ad ministrative personnel, together with their equipment nad records are in the process of relocating in the brick building. The offic space vacated by these depart ments will be re-allocated by the Chancellor's committee on space, headed by Dean James L. Godfrey. The basement of Steele wil con tinue to be used by the Booketeria.
