The reason given by Branch for
the new policy was that a loan
had been received from the federal
Government for construction of the
new campus dormitories ( Parker,
league, and Avery). To obtain this
loan, he said, a statement had to
be signed that revenue from all
UNC dormitories Including increased
loom rent, above the maintenance
and operating costs, had to go
toward payment on the debt.
n tlie part an estimated 150-200
ftudents have been moving from
the dormitories and receiving re
funds. Branch stated that under
the present financial conditions the
University couldn't afford "that type
Branch said, "We rent rooms on
two main bases. One. we allow up-
Ier classmen to retain their old
rooms In the spring if they wish.
The remainder of the rooms are
rented to incoming studjents on
first come, first serve basis."
He went on to 'point out after
all rooms wvre filled few still came,
finding housing off campus but
some were discouraged from at
tending Carolina at all.
Then if those whoreohfd dormi
tory rooms started leaving, it was
too late to accept those students
who had been discouraged from
coming. The University consequent
ly lost money beeause dormitories
were not filled to capacity.
Fraternities were considered in
making the decision, but Branch
stated that first consideration had
to go toward housing accomodations
on campus and the debt obligation.

Fraternities Use Different Methods
By DAVIS B. YOUNG
and JAMIE HOLMES
(This is the second in a series
on fraternities being written by
Davis B. Young and Jamie
Llolmes, members of the Daily
Tar Heel editorial staff.)
Bound up in the intricacies of
being accepted by a fraternity is
ttie risk pf being "blackballed."
Because each fraternity will be
rushing many times as many
toys this week as it can possibly
take in its pledge class, it is
oily logical that hunireds of boys
will be rejected in this way from
i.t lest one house by the end of
- Rush Week.
One fraternity leader comment
;d, "Do not worry if you are
tailed from many houses. This is
something that we have all been
through. There isn't a. man on
campus who has ever been through
rush who hasn't been blackballed
liomewhere along the way."
BLACKBALLS TAKE MANY
Blackballing can be achieved
sthrough many different firms.

The change is primarily an ad
ministrative one. "We are taking
seme of the work off the dean
of women's office," Magill explain
ed. The rules for getting a party
approved "will be precisely the
same as last year," Magill asserted.
To get a function approved it
must be-reported - at- least threr
days prior to the day of the func
tion. Requests for approval will
uot be accepted after 12:30 p.m.
on Wednesday prior to the weekend j
when the function is to occur.
The parties are approved for the
convenience of the fraternities, Ma
gill said. Carolina Coeds except for
some students in SNursing School

proved, but other girls, schools re
