7,400 Delegates From 1,000
Colleges Hear Noted
The University was represented by
ten students at what was probably
the largest student convention ever
held in the history of Christianity,
the ninth quadrennial international
convention of the Student Volunteer
Movement for Foreign Missions at
Indianapolis during the Christmas
"holidays. Thee were 7,400 delegates
from about 1,000 colleges and schools
in the United States and Canada and
from practically every race and coun-
"try in the world.
The application of "the Jesus way
of life" to every vocation and every
.phase of life, seemed to be the key
note of the great convention. We
must clean up and wake up at home,
if America is to have enough Chris
tianity to warrant exportation. Dyna--inic
demands were made that the
.principles of Christt, surcharged with
the vigor of youth, be proclaimed in
missionary efforts to bring about a
"world brotherhood, and that all class
-and race hatred give way to Jesus'
-law of love.
The two questions before the con
vention that created the greatest in
terest and discussion were those of
race and war.
"Unless America can solve her own
race problem," declared speakers
from several lands, "the American
foreign missionary enterprise must
fail. The people of Asia will be un
able to believe in the sincerity of
American Christianity if American
Christians contintue in their present
race prejudices and hatreds."
One of the most brilliant addresses
of the convention was made by Pro
fessor J. E. K. Aggrey, son of the
"prime minister" of an African chief-
tan, a graduate and teacher of Liv
ingston College, Salisbury, N. C, who
just recently passed with honor his
Ph. D examination at Columbia Uni
versity. He presented the needs of
Africa, declaring that it was ready
and waiting for Christianity, and urg
ing that his negro race be allowed to
make its contribution to the life of

INAUGRAL TO PHI
New Officers Are Installed at
First Meeting of Phi
Charles E. Spencer, recently elect
ed speaker of the Philanthropic As
sembly, urged members of the As
sembly to be "transformers from our
Kreat heritage to future students"
and impressed upon the House a two
fold duty: that of esponsibiIity to the
Assembly and that of responsibility
to the Assembly and that of respon
sibility to oneself, in his inaugural
address, delivered Saturday night.
The real aim of the work of the
Assembly is higher a great deal
"higher than hte society itself," the
new speaker stated. "It is this high
aim proficiency in the art of speach
that keeps the Assembly alive and
-fid all similiar societies, he declared,
prospering; without this ideal the Phi
"would not survive for any great
time." He asked all members to co
operate in making the winter quar
ter of this year the best period in
the history of the organization which
he has been elected to lead for the
next three months.
Installation of the new officers for
the winter quarter, the discussion of
one resolution, hte tabling of a long
standing bill, and the inition fo two
new members constituted the remain
der of the Phi program. Officers serv
ing for the first time were: speaker, C.
E. Spencer; speaker,pro-tem, J. M.
Saunders; sergeant-at-arms, P. C.
Gibson; reading clerk, R. L. Smith.
Two initiates, F. N. Mullen, Jr., and
George Epstein were taken into mem
bership. Upon motion by George Hampton,
fromre speaker, the long-awaited bill
favoring President Coolidge's plans
for tax reduction fas indefinitely
tabled. Considerable discussion over
the present unsettled situation in
Mexico furnished the "hot air for
the evening, the Assembly finally
going on record as disapproving the
action of the United States in ship
ping arms into the borders of its sis
TO SPEAK HERE
Come On Invitation of the New
Law School Association
JUSTICE CLARK FIRST
A new organization, known as the
Law School Association, has appear
ed in the Law School of hte Univer
sity. This association which was or
ganized shortly before Christmas by
Mr. Albert Coates of the Law Fac
ulty has for its purpose the promo
tion of the interests of the Law
Every student of the Law Clubs
is automatically a member of the
Association, and the presidents of the
Law Clubs are the directors of the
Association. The Board of Directors
of the Law . School Association ' is
composed of the following men who
are the presidents of their respective
S. M. Cathey of the McCray Law
Club; C. E. Cowan of the Iredell Law
Club; A. J. Eley of the Ruffin Law
Club; G. V. Hill of the Gaston Law
Club; C. C. Poindexter of the Pear
son Law Club; A. L. Purrington of the
McGehee Law Club; and S. M.
Whedbee of the Manning Law Cub.
The Board of Advisors is made up
of the following: A. C. Mcintosh, P.
H. Winston, R. H. Wettach, and F. B.
McCall of the Law School Faculty,
and H. W. Chase and C. T. Woollen
of the University Administration.
The first step that has been taken
to carry out the purpose of the Law
School Association is the invitation
recently extended to the Justices of
the Supreme Court of North Caro
lina to speak to the Law School dur
ing the Spring Term. Three of the
Justices have accepted the invitation,
and the other two have expressed the
desire to accept if circumstance's will
Chief Justice Walter Clark will ini
tiate the program on Friday coring,
January 25. The other Justices will
follow - at intervals of about one-
month. This is only the beginning of
a program that will bring the Law
School into active touch with tee leg
al profession in North Carolina.
It is planned next year to invite n
number of Judges of the Superior
vJc urt bench speak to th Law
School and the following year a num
btr of the leading members of the
Qi r er activities for the Law S'v-i ji

be .-.nnounced later.
NO MONEY; NO

Annual Managers Say No Pic
ture Will Be Run Unless
Bills Are Paid
All group and individual pictures
for the Yackety Yack must be made
on Monday, January 14th and the fol
lowing three days. The editorial
board is very anxious to have all the
groupps made at the very beginning
of the period in order to finally de
cide on the number of pages in the
Every student in school will re
ceive a Yackety Yack at the end of
the Spring term and every student
eligible for representation is urged
to have his or her picture taken enith
er for the individuals or for the
groups. The freshman class officers
are very anxious for a large picture
of the class, it being the largest
freshman class in the south.
Unless the individual pictures for
the fraternity and class sections are
taken on this clean-up trip they will
not appear in the book. This an
nouncement was made yesterday by
R. S. Pickens, editor. The forms will
be closed on February 15th, when
all bills must be paid and after that
date, no roders for space or for rep
resentation will be received. This is
made necessary by the recent ruling
of the Publications Board, which
states emphatically that no organiza
tion can be represented which hasn't
paid its bill by February 15th.
A co-ed at the University of Kan
sas has started a date-making agen
cy as an aid to paying her expenses
through college. For 25 cents she
will arrange a date for any girl, sat
isfaction guaranteed or money refunded.
Statement Shows That the Plan Adopted Last Year By the Stu
dent Body Has Proved a Success On the Financial
End at Least
The Board cf the Publications Union, with the end fo the first quarter
of its existence, has drawn up a financial statement showing every detail of
its administration of the student fee and published it elsewhere in this issue
of the Tar Heel.
"Every student on the campus is a member of the Union," says Presi
dent Kitchin, "and we feel that such a report as this is his right and should
be of interest to him.. We hope he will study it carefullly and give the
Board the benefit of his criticisms and suggestions in writing."
In turning over the reports to the Tar Heel for publication, Mr. Hib
bard, the secretary, called attention to two or three outstanding feature of
the statement as follows: i ' " "
"While the report, as published, would indicate that all three of the
publications are on a sound financial basis, it must be remembered that the
net profits' as indicated are deceptive in one regard. The Board has felt
it only right to pay the business managers in proportion to their efforts and
success; in general they are paid a percentage based on profits Avhich they
return. The balance given for each publication, in the published report, in
cludes this salary item as profit, though eventually some of that must be
turned over to the .managers as salary."
"Every student, too, should realize that in actual return for his fee of
$5.50 he is receiving something like $11.00 worth of work. The campu pays
in during the year only $10,600 as fees, but the actual expense of running
the three publications will be somewhat over $22,000."
"In making this report; the Board wishes to announce its policy in the
matter of salaries for student managers. In the past years wild rumors
have had it that managers have made as high as five thousand dollars as a
result fo their year's work. This, the Board has reason to know, is merely
speculative gossip. The general policy of the Union Board has been to take
away the stigma of "graft" which has sometimes gone with these positions
and place them more nearly on the student "honor" basis. With this in
mind it has guaranteed the following salaries: Tar Heel Business Manager,
?3C0 a year plu3 20 per cent commission on all profits; Carolina Magazine
Manager, $150 a year plus a 35 per cent commission on all profits; the
Yackety Yack Managei's and Editor $150 a year -and 50 per cent on all
"With its regular meetings and the powers granted it by the constitu
tion, the Board in this way can keep a close record of the business status of
the publications from month to month, and, should the need occur, at any
time remove an inefficient manager. The students' fees are protected and
at the same time the managers are secured of a definite return for honest
effort expended. This matter of salaries the Board went into very care
fully, taking into consideration numerous items which cannot appear to the
superficial observer. It feels, however, that the matter should be considered
as an experiment and that in the light of the year's experience changes may
well be made another year.

NEW BUREAU OF
Beware in Charge of T. A.
Whitever Office In Alumni
The University has begun this year
the development of a Bureau of Voca
tional Informattion, which will have
as its purpose the furnishing of in
formation to intterested students
about the various vocations open to
college men in roder that they may
make wise decisions. The first step
has been taken in this matter with
the organization of a library of vo
cational information. Approximately
200volumes have been assembled, ar
ranged alphabetically by vocations.
The vocations covered run from ac
counting through writing and include
about 70 different professions and oc
cupations in which the students; of
the University are interested, as
shown by their statements at matri
culation, and by vocational lists pre
pared at other institutions. This
helf has been made up after a cor
respondence with 36 publishing houses
and more than 100 colleges and uni
versities on the basis of vocational
bibliographies obtained in thi3 way.
It is, then, probably the most com
plete shelf of this kind to be found
in the country. This . shelf, appro-,
priately labelled, will be placed in
the lobby of the library on the light
to the entrance of the reading room.
Students interested in obtaining ad
ditional information about the vaii
o covations may look over these
volumes and may borrow one O'" mo''e
for u week.
The Bureau of Vocational Infor
mation, in charge of T. A. Whitener,
is in the office of the Dean of Stu
dents, Alumni 114. Mr. Whitencr is
now engaged in gathering additional
information to supplement that con
tained on hte book shelf. Those in
terested in discussing the matter of
'. cattional choice and seeking fur
ther information, may see Mr. White
ner between 10:30 and 12:30.
