No one will be admitted to the dances
unless he is a student, alumnus or facul
tas of the University. As the gymnasium
will be used for all but one of the dances,
it will be impossible to admit outsiders
because "Doc Luwson's gym" is entirely
too small for present demands. Stu
dents attending the dances are requested
to remind their friends at other institu
tions of this. As usual freshmen will
not be allowed to attend.
The opening dunce will be given iu
the gym by the Gimghouls Thursday

SELF-HELP MEN SHOULD
BE ALLOWED TO CANVASS
DORMITORIES SAYS T
Cabinet Goes on Record as Op
posing Drastic Restriction of
APPEALS TO STUDENTS
Drastic measures were taken bv the Y
M. C. A. cabinet last -Monday night
against the action of the University Sup
erintendent of Buildings in reviving a
rule, neglected for 15 years, which for
bids the canvassing of the dormitories
with any article whatsoever for sale
without a special permit from that of
ficer. Superintendent Burch, the ollicer in
question, revived this rule primarily be
cause of complaints coming to him from
various sources against the sellinn- of
sandwiches, cakes and fruit in the dor
mitories every night. Gooch's Cafe is
aiiid to have complained because this
business was being carried on in com
petition to it without paying taxes.
Several students are also said to have
complained to Mr. Burch about "being
bothered too much by peddlers."
The "Y" cabinet found that this action
is throwing many a heretofore prosper
ous self-help student out of a job. and
that some of them face leaving school
unless the privilege is restored. The
cabinet placed itself on record as in
favor of some slight restriction, such as
allowing only one student with a cer
tain article to handle a certain building,
but special permits giving one man a
monopoly in one held and preventing
other helds from canvassing at all was
not to be tolerated, the cabinet said.
"For instance," it was argued, "how
can one student be allowed to canvass
for shoes to be repaired, and another
prevented from canvassing with food."
A committee with G. Y. Ragsdale as
chairman was appointed to investigate
the proposition and to present it to the
student body in chapel Friday morning

to be fullv as strong as any which
the freshmen have met so far, and are
likely to bring forth some fast playing.

the first game are Milstead and John
ston, forwards; Devin and Buchanan,
guards, and Cobb, center. Three other
substitutes and Coach Alexander will
make up the rest of the partv.

ago, 427 more than two years ago.
Expected increase in next two years, at least 50c.
Completed in last two years: Four dormitories, housing

reach between 5,000 and 6,000 this next summer, creating great
pressure upon the University and the colleges of the State.

men's dormitories housing 360 students altogether; a dormi
tory for women, housing 75 ; three teaching buildings chemis
try, geology, general; a permanent water supply; renovation

THE FEBRUARY NUMBER
ALUMNI REVIEW ISSUED
The Budget requests of the University of North Carolina, laid before
the Budget Commission of the state by President Chase, called for $2,317,
380 for building during the biennium and $765,040 for maintenance for
The Budget Commission replied with a recommendation that $1,650,000
(a cut of $667,380) be given for buildings, and $675,000 (a cut of $90,040)
be given for maintenance for 1924-25.
Since that time a controversy has come up among the political leaders
of the state over the condition of the state's finances. The Budget Com
missions takes the side that Governor Morrison defends, to-wit, that there
is at present a surplus of two and one-half million dollars in the State
Treasury. Opposing this, and apparently backed with one of the state's
strongest Democratic papers, are Mr. Maxwell and others, who assert that
there is at present a deficit of five million dollars in the State Treasury.
There is pending an investigation by the Legislature to determine which
of these interpretations is correct.
Th Budget Commission, in its recommendations for appropriations, was
acting on the assumption that there is a surplus in the Treasury at the
present time. The majority of the papers in the state have expressed
their belief that the Budget Commission and the Governor are right in
their interpretations, and public opinion seems to tend this way, many
believing that the figures of Mr. Maxwell are the basis of a grand politi
cal plot and conspiracy, aimed at the present Democratic administration.
Yet, in spite of this attitude, the Budget Commission, slashed the Uni
versity Budget requests to such an extent that this institution will be
crippled and handicapped in an immeasurable degree in its expansion and
growth if it does not reconsider its recommendations, and this stunting
of its growth goes right back to the heart of the state, itself.
If the Treasury of the state is in a sound condition, and if the assump
tion of the Budget Commission is correct, the Tar Heel believes, as was
editorially pointed out in last issue, that the state could make no greater
mistake than in refusing to give what the University has requested.
Every dollar of it goes to fulfill a need, the importance of which cannot
be overestimated. Every dollar of it will be spent wisely and judicially,
just as every dollar that has already been spent in the great building
program started here. Every dollar is a sound financial investment for

Thus tlie Greensboro News greeted the

lowing comment on the bulletin:

roads, why not build more good people?
