THE APPROPRIATION FOR
We are glad to state that the
General Assembly has appropri
ated ten thousand dollars annual-
fly for two years to be spent in
repairing the University build
ings and in providing suitable
sanitary conveniences. This
is a work that should have been
done long ago. The University
is State property and it is false
economy to let the property go
down for lack of repairs. The
old East Building is one hundred
years old. The roof on the South,
the old East and the old West are
over sixty years old.
Sanitary arrangements . are
needed, as badly as repairs. An
infirmary for the care of the sick
is indispensable where 320 men
pre congregated together.
The appropriation will be de
voted to these purposes; renovat
ing the old East and . old West in
a manner similar to the renova
tion of the South, putting on new
tin roof, putting comfortable seats
in the recitation rooms, enlarging
the . capacity of the library by
erecting a gallery and putting in
in more shelves, completing the
water-supply, putting in baths,
closets, etc. , in the basement un
der ther library,' and building an
Gentlemen of the Legislature,
we thank you most heartily for
this substantial recognition of the
merits and needs of the Univer
sity. As students of the Uni ver
sity, loving the State and feeling
an ambition to serve the State in
whatever capacity we may be
able, we shall show ourselves
worthy of your confidence and
shall endeavor to repay the State
hereafter for helping us to , com
plete our education.
THE FEBRUARY DANCE.
It is Lent. The society belle
has gone into winter quarters and
sombre gown; goes to early
mass and afternoon service daily;
is served with boiled bass instead
of a; fillet de boenf and an oyster
pate instead of a broiled quail
She eats no outter and persuades
her better fellow-to give, up his
cigarette. But on Sundays on
Sundays she dines as she pleases;
her gray gown is becoming; so
she doesn't change this, but she
changes her diet and keeps her
dainty little mouth full of cara
mels which she has saved for the
occasion. , But she doesn't dance.
Oh, no ! Dancing-nights . a 11 d
Fast-days don't come within the
same solar day and the University
German Club had this ' in mind
when tjiey mdved up the Wash
ington's Birthday dance to suit
the church calendar.
That dayit was the 7 th the
noon train brought several of the
angels from the west, and the
night train another heavenly choir
from the capital and our sister
city, Durham. When the band
began with the opening strains of
the "Dude's March" the array of
feminine grace and loveliness was
enough to satisfy the most opti
mistic dreamer, and those who
had predicted a "german of 3
couples" were silenced, forever.
From 10 o'clock until the wee
small hours, youth and chivalry
vied with grace and beauty, and
the mazy figures of the german,
under the skillful leadership of
Mr. W. B. Snow, changed like
the colors of some huge kalaide
scopej and with the ease and tact
of a Beau Brummel he lead the
Golden Pageant through memer
ious windings and fanciful turns.
with a surpassing faultlessness.
After the . lingering, throbbing
strains of "Home, Sweet Home"
had died away, the entire company
repaired to the University Inn
where an elegant supper was
served. ., ,
