There is hardly any doubt about
the fact that a irew dormitory for
co-eds will be one of the build
ings constructed from the recent
appropriation of $1,650,000 to the
University" for permanent im
provements by the last Legisla
ture, according to Mrs. Russell,
matron of women students. The
final decision on this matter, how
ever, rests in the hands of the
buildings committee of the Uni
versity board of trustees meeting
on the Hill this week.
1'lnns for this, the first building ever
purposely to be erected for co-eds at the
University, were drawn by the T. C At-
wood Organization sometime ago. The
Atwood Organization is planning the ar
rangements of all buildings for the next
fifty or a hundred years in the future
and are building many castles in the air,
or in blue print, according to the near
ness of the time for constructing the
building. The coeds dormitory is the
pending problem new.
The building if voted through is to bo
located in -what is known as Hatch; I'arlc I
on the site of tiie faculiy tenuis courts,
and is to be made the central building
for any number of additional buildings
necessary in the future. Tentative plans
include space for about KHl women which
means fifty dwelling rooms. In addition,
there will be a dining hall, a kitchen.
parlors, etc. The original plans also in
cluded a gymnasium with its parapher
nalia and apparatus and a swimming
pool, but it is thought that the cut iu
the University budget by the legislature
will necessitate the elimination of these
luxuries, for the present at least, in that
they are denied now even to men

J. O. HARMON'
President of the Student Body
I am opposed to the building of a
co-ea dormitory for four reasons:
(1) I am opposed to co-education as
a principle; but, granting that we hav
it permanently, I believe that it should
be limited to professional students, lo
cal residents and members of the erad.
uate school, for whom we now have suf

(3) The University will need every
penny of the reduced budget to take
care of the boys.
(4) A greater number of co-eds will
make necessary more stringent campus
regulations for the boys.
BE SURE AND VOTE
The Tar Heel, in conjunction with
some of the leaders of the campus,
feeling that this co-ed dormitory
proposition endangers the future of
the University, will take a campus
vote tomorrow, in an effort to get
the sentiment of the campus, which
we believe to be against co-education.
Be sure and get a ballot and
cast your vote. The results of this
vote will be presented to the Build
ing Committee which will meet here
early next week.

earnestly rejoicing in the greater oppor
tunities opening to women at Carolina.
Certainly they, the University's alum
na.', have records that do honor to Caro
lina. The list of their names includes
women high in many professions, and
of deeper significance than this is the
fact that they are taking the verv highest
stand in the State today. Some names
stand out especially Miss Mary Hen

I can see no reason why this institu
tion on account of just the mere prefer
ence of some girls should spend its mon
ey on building a co-ed dormitory at this
time. Such a building would bring a
large number of co-eds here next vear
and a stUl larger number the next. I
am opposed to co-education to this ex
tent under the present condition of the
University, but I am in favor of open
ing our doors wide to all co-eds who
wish to enter our graduate schools.
Then, if the number so increases, build

The University Buiidine Com
mittee will hold a session her
next Monday to determine what
use will be made of the $i.6so.ooo
appropriated by the Legislature
for buildings and general im
provements. The most important
question that will face the com
mittee is the advisability of sink
ing between $250,000 and $i?o.-
000 of this sum in a woman's dor
mitory and thereby sanction for
all time co-education at the Uni

items listed in the budget presented the
Budget - Commission by Dr. Chase and
the committee appointed to draw up the
University requests, and it is eenernllu
understood that considerable pressure hag
been brought to bear on the Committee
to include such a building iQ the pro

that when the Budget Commission made .

There ure two reasons for this restric

graduate University. The first is the
lack of accommodations for co-eds in
Chapel Hill, and the second is that as
