NOT GRANT TO UNIVERSITY
FULL AMOUNT REQUESTED
Recommendation of $1,650,000 for
Permanent Improvements and
$650,000 for Maintenance.
WILL CURTAIL PROGRAM
In the biennial report of the State
Budget Commission read before the As
sembly Saturday, there was recommend
ed $1,650,000 for permanent improve
ments, and $650,000 for two year main
tenance fund at the University of
North Carolina. New bond issues for
permanent improvements in various in
stitutions of the whole state, amount
ing to $8,775,000, were recommended.
The report of the Commission was laid
before the Assembly Saturday, for its
action and approval.
Bequests for appropriations for cur
rent maintenance expenses and for per
manent improvements of state institu
tions were largely increased over de
mands made two years ago, but the
commission has slashed sharply into the
figures of the petitioners, reducing
maintenance requests by a million and
a half dollars and improvement requests
by about six millions.
The University this year asked for
$2,317,000. The amount recommended
by the commission was only $1,650,000.
This will greatly curtail the building
program of the University. There are
many new buildings and improvements
which are considered very essential that
are provided for in the amount asked
for by President Chase; and it is re
gretted by the University authorities
that the commission did not see fit to
recommend the full amount. Four new
dormitories, including a residence for
women students, installation of a per
manent water system, and a new chem
istry building are the major requests
made on the budget commission. The
chemistry building alone, including
equipment, will cost more than a half
' million dollars. A geology building, n
classroom building, and various im
provements on the campus were some
other high spots in the requests made.
There is urgent need for permanent
equipment for the various buildings and
grounds for recreation.
Tho maintenance budget asked for
by the University in addition to the
permanent improvement fund, amount
ed to $715,00(). This budget is based
on the assumption that the number of
students will increase 500 in the next
two years, and is considered a very con
servative estimate. Under maintenance
fund are included building upkeep, in
struction, administration, laboratory
and departmental supplies, the Y. M.
C. A., summer school, extension depart
ment and repairs.
CAROLINA SNATCHES HARD EARNED
VICTORY FROM BAPTIST QUINT
Wake Forest Displays Strong Defense But Loses 38 to 26 Several
Players Put Out on Fouls Pagano and Stringfield Star
for Visitors Mahler and Carmichael Play Well.
Wake Forest could not overcome the early lead of the Tar Heels in the
basketball game here Friday night, and went down iu defeat 3S to 26. Although
fouls wore of frequent occurrence, playing was fast throughout tho contest
and both quints were forced to extend themselves to the limit. The Baptist
defense was difticult to solve and the
Carolina forwards could get only three
Carmichael started things humming
with a foul goal in the first minute of
play, but Stringfield rang up another
one and the count was evcu. From then
on Carolina gradually drew away from
the visitors and at the end of the half
the score stood 22 to 14. Mahler slipped
away from his forward and scored three
times from under the basket during the
half, while every other Carolina player
made at least one field goal. Pagano
landed a beautiful shot from the center
of the floor.
Captain Heckman and Pagano dis
played some splendid guarding during
the second period. The half was ten
minutes old before Carolina could lo
cate the hoop again. Carmichael 's
shooting from the foul line kept the
Blue and White in the lead, while Poole
and Graham added a field goal each.
Stringfield shot a pretty long goal from
near the corner, besides playing a good
floor game and doing some creditable
Three Carolina players had to leave
the game via the personal foul routs,
and Greason, star Baptist forward, ob
tained the "fatal four" when the game
was not half over. Coach Steiner, of
Trinity, refereed with impartiality, but
he seemingly paid more attention to
technicalities than to more serious of
fenses, involving bodily contact.

To Organize Soon
The Publications Union, which was
formed last year, is to have a meeting
next Thursday evening at 7 o'clock for
the purpose of organization. Due to
the fact that it was formed after the
election of managers for this year it
was unable to do anything this year,
but hopes to be iu fine shape for next
year. It is composed of managers and
other representatives of the Yackety
Yack, the Magazine and the Tar Heel.
There are Thomas Turner, Jr., presi
dent; Charles K. Massey, secretary;
T. P. Cheesborough, J. J. Wade, George
W. McCoy, and T. L. Howard. There
will be one more member chosen from
the faculty at an early date.
The purpose of the union is almost
that of a combined treasurv for the
publications of the University. The
managers are to work on a salary basis,
with all surplus from the publications
to be paid into the union, there to await 1
its use as the union may see fit.
The present status of the Boll Weevil
is undecided. This publication has not
yet decided whether to enter the union
or not, and members of the union have
stated that if it does not enter it will
be declared an unofficial publication by

DR. SLEDD DENOUNCES
A LEGALISTIC RELIGION
Emory University Professor Draws Les
son From Teachings of the
The first University sermon of the
year 1923 was delivered Sunday night
in Gerrard Hall by Dr. Andrew Sledd,
a member of the faculty of Emory Uni
versity. Dr. Sledd drew his sermon
'roin a decision of the apostle Paul, and
particularly from a statement made by
him in a letter to the Galatians, in
which he discredited their religious doc
trine. According to Dr. Sledd, Paul stood
on a dividing line in religious evolu
tion. Until this time their religion had
consisted merely in following out prin
ciples that had come into use long bo
foro and were kept up as a matter of
precedence. "This," said the speaker,
"was the religion of doing things
merely as a matter of conformity to
rules that had become strictly legal.
"In attacking the central part of
that Mosaic doctrine, which was the ne
cessity of circumcision, Paul threw a
thunderbolt from a clear sky. But he
worked under authority; Christ himself
nnd discredited many of the strict Jew
ish customs, and Paul had Him as an
example. But this great teacher did
not destroy without offering something
better than the thing which he attack
ed. Instead of the old plan of being
a Christian because it was deemed ad
visable by legal code, he introduced the
method of Christianity through faith.
This was the religion of being the right
thing simply for the love of it."
Tt, Sledd then attempted a defini
tion of faith. "The term has often
been confused," he said. "People often

In regard to an article which appear
ed in the1 ConiinuncHtions column of sev
eral issues back, which criticized the
usurpation of the gym by the Univer
sity authorities, Dr. Lawson iu essence
stated to the Tar Heel reporter for pub
lication: "The University buildings are not
supposed to be open to the pubic at all
hours, as the writer of the aticle which
appeared in the Tar Heel seems to
think. Practically all of the University
buildings are supposed to be closed at
6 p. 111. Neither the Library, Swain
Hall, Alumni Building, nor any of the
other buildings remain open at all hours
of the night. For a student to claim
the right to use the gym at all hours
is analoguous to demanding that Swain
Hall remain open all night and serve
midnight lunches whenever the student
Dr. Lawson further stated that the
gym was supposed to close at 6 p. m.
and whenever the building was used
after that hour it was only by special
permission. Tho gym authorities would
be delighted to permit the students to
use the building at all hours, but for
the fact that the mats, . horses, and
other apparatus are misplaced, torn, anil
dirtied up when they are not looked
after by the officials, who are not able
to be present at all hours.
DR. VENABLE TALKS TO
FRESHMEN ABOUT LEE
"Robert K. Lee, the Gentleman,"
was the subject of a chapel talk Thurs
day by Dr. Francis P. Venable. Doctor
Vcnable touched the high spots in this
illustrious American 's character, and
recommended to the freshmen a study
of his career as a guide to true success
"The mark of a gentleman," said
Doctor Venable, "is not a matter of
parentage. One may be a gentleman
regardless of what his ancestors were.
General Lee did not vaunt his high par
entage; he was proud of it, but rather
than rely on what his fathers had done
as the only thing which made him a
gentleman, he wished to pass on the
heritage, unspotted and unstained."
"It is not wealth," he continued,
"that makes a gentleman; neither is
it position or power. It is gentleness.
self-control, self-sacrifice, the perform
ance of duty, and a willingness to ac
cept religious guidance in nil things.
These characteristics were all incorpor
ated in the life of Robert E. Lee, nnd
they were what made him the red
blooded American gentleman that he
was. ' '
UNIVERSITY ISSUES RULES
FOR SCHOOL BASKETBALL
Few Changes in New Regulations Pub
lished by Extension Division Gov
erning Basketball Championship.
A bulletin of regulations governing
participation in the ninth annual high
school basketball state championship
contest has just been issued. The bul
letin was published under auspices of
the University Extension Division and
the General Athletic Association of the
University, and is being sent to all
high schools of the state.
Regulation number five represents j
the principal change in this year's reg
ulations over last year's. The regula
tion reads: "To be eligible, a student
must have made passing grades for the
three months or longer fall term of the
school year 1022-23 on a majority of
the studies in some regularly organized
course of study in the school which he
is now attending and wishes to repre

Plays, which will be presented at the
Playhouse on Friday and Saturday eve
nings of this week, will not tax the
brain of the humblest member of their
audience. Their appeal is first of all
to the anatomical seat of pleasure, just
wherever that may be, and later, if at
all, to the intellect.
A trio of folk plays without at least
one tragedy or "deep" play, while at
the same time above par in their own
right, is somewhat unusual in the an
nals of the Playmnkers. The rare oc
currence will no doubt meet with popu
The opening play of the group is
Paul Green's "Wrack P'int," a melo
drama of the Carolina coast. The play
deals with the polyglot crew of the
yacht Mary Wells while the vessel is
stranded off Wreck Point, where one
James Wilkins had been mysteriously
murdered some years before. The mys
tery and horror of the dead man's
supposed reappearance and its effect
upon the varying nationalities repre
sented in the crew is vividly portrayed.
The second play is "Agatha," Jane
Toy's romance of the Old South, which
takes us back to the North Carolina of
30 years ago. The scene is laid in Hills
boro during the University's troublous
days immediately following the war
between the states. The play gives us
an intimate glimpse of an old south
ern family, still dauntless and cheer
ful and capable of romance even among
the uncertainty and bitterness of recon
struction. Tho real charm of the play
lies in the quaint and delightful atmos
phere which permeates it.
The last play is"" Wilbur's. Cousin"
(recently "Nothing Definite") by Ern
est Thompson, which is a comedy of
college life. The play is the dramati
zation of an actual week-end experi
ence of a Carolina student. The plen
tiful humor of the play is strictly mod

the student so happy as to be present,
to the detriment perhaps of his sides
because of too much laughing.
All of these plays are now in inten

stage sets have been designed for the
plays by MaeMillau and are in process
of execution by his class in dramatic
production. A new lighting equipment.

No Women Profs
Says Di Society
Suspending the regular ordor of exer
eises for the evening, on account of
much time taken up in the adoption of
two constitutional amendments, Di So
ciety enjoyed a humorous extemporane
ous debate on the subject, "Resolved
That women professors should replace
men professors on the Hill." .1. W.
Deaton defended the affirmative, claim
ing that since N. C. C. W., a woman's
college, had men professors, it followed
that Carolina, a man's college, should
have women professors. Irwin Monk
wrestled with the negative side of the
query but was unable to meet such in
vincible logic. The hall, however, came
to his rescue and defeated the proposal.
The two amendments brought up pre
vious to this debate concerned the sec
retary's duties and the debate council,
respectively. The first amendment
passed unanimously without discussion,
but when the second was brought up,
there appeared to be two conflicting
amendments on the same subject; name
ly, one presented by E. C. Hunt speci
fying the time and manner of appoint
ment of debate council members from
Di Society and in general defining the
powers of the council; second, one pre
sented by G. W. McCoy which differed
with Mr. Hunt's only in that it pro
vided also for a salary for the secretary
of the debate council to be borne joint
ly by the two societies.
Mr. McCoy defended his position
alone, claiming that the amount of
time spent by the secretary of the coun
cil deserved some remuneration. Thomas
Turner, 8. M. Cathey, J. M. Brown,
C. C. Poindexter and Mr. Hunt defend
ed the Hunt amendment which was fin
ally passed by the hall.

Terms of Six Weeks.
CHAPEL HILL SCHOOL
CHILDREN HAVE TREAT
The pupils of the Chapel Hill school
were given a treat Friday morning in
chapel. Hassie Privctt, baritone, as
sisted by Herman Wcihc, violinist, both
members of the University Glee Club,
rendered three delightful songs which,
judging from the applnuse, were well
received by the audience. Privctt first
sang "The Kashmire Song," by Hope,
with violin obligato. Weihe then play
ed Kreisler's "Schi'm Rosmnrin," a
light whimsical piece of spiceato qual
ity. The program was completed by
Privctt 'h singing of "My Laddie Boy"
by Thayer and "The Big Brown Bear"
by Wanna Zuccn. The latter brought
many smiles and vigorous applause.
Definite anounceiiieut was made Sat
urday that instead of running for only
six weeks, tho University Summer
School will this year be operated for
two terms of six weeks each.
The first term will open Monday,
Juno 18, and close Saturday, July 28,
and the second will open Monday, July
30, and close Friday, September 7.
This doubling-up is a direct result of
urgent requests from the teachers of the
state. It is impossible iu one term to
meet the demands of those desiring to
attend. Tho attendance has been stead
ily growing from year to year. Last
sinner it was approximately 1400.
A number of the dormitories will be
open for women and each of these build
ings will be in charge of a chaperon.
Swain Hall will remain open during both
sessions. The cost of room rent and
board for six weeks is expected to be
$39. Registration fee will be $15, and
there is a tuition of $10 for those who
come from outside the state.
Courses are arranged so that gradu
ates of standard colleges may complete
in three summers the work leading to
the degree of Master of Arts.
Through tho whole 12 weeks period
the library, gymnasium, laboratory and
infirmary will be at the service of the
teachers and students.
