raged around whether the Student

could pass legislation affecting fra

Jey Deifell, the first speaker, said
she felt the dress on campus was
comfortable, practical and applica

The next speaker was Paddy Wall,
speaking for the senior women. She
said that she felt that casual dress
can be carried too far and gave ex
amples of coeds going to concerts
and banquets in bobby socks.
Janie Walters complained that too
often the townspeople of Chapel Hill
don't set a good example of dress
for the students.
She reminded the coeds that
companies often interview would-be
employes' wives and judge them
greatly on their dress.
Mrs. Noland said that to be well
dressed one must first be immacu

with the UNC Department of Radio,

courses in the communication arts.
Since 1918 the Carolina Playmak

a dramatic laboratory and a com

ductions of old and modern, djanias,
clasical and popular, and four pro
ductipns of new scripts, both one
act and full-length, are done each
year between September and June
by the Carolina Playmakers.
The Playmakers have already pro
duced "Oklahoma" and "Look
Homeward, Angel" with "The
Would-Be Gentleman" (Feb. 25
March 1); "Mrs. McThing" (April
8-12); and "Inherit The Wind" (May
7-9) on tap.
Among the contributions of the
Carolina Playmakers has been the
development of outdoor historical
dramas. The group has provided
scripts through its alumni, direc
tion and much of the staff and act
ing personnel for five of these
plays: Paul Green's "The Lost.

These are some of the comments,

members of the History Department
when, asked to comment on the

Prof. James E. King used the
term "mathematical mistique" and
said that the trend of covering up
deficits and pushing them forward
into the next biennium would, leave
the University without necessary
funds to go forward.
King said traditionally North Car
olina had been way ahead in educa
tion over states that surpassed this
state in many other fields. Now the
trend seems to balance the scalea
and put North Carolina back in an
educational category that matches
other items, King said. No longer
