went palace for Chapel Hill.. After
many months of hurried construe
tion, following the disastrous burn
ing of the Old Battle-ground, work
men are putting the finishing touches
n the new theatre, and it is probable
, that the opening show will be Sat
urday, May 31.
The burning of the Pickwi:k early
in the year was one of tho srcddest
occasions witnessed here, for it was
thought that Chapel Hill would be
deprived of movies for the remainder
of the two regular sessions, but Ger
rard Hall was secured and the regu
lar program was continued. Before
the ashes of the gutted building had
-died, workmen were busy cleaning
away debris and material was being
hauled in order to reconstruct the
. Pick as soon as possible. The new
building is reared upon the founda
tions of the old with several decided
improvements. It is a number cf
: feet wider, taking in the shop former
ly used by the 0 'Kelly Tailoring Co.
the outermost wall of which is used
in the construction. Although the'en-
trance is further removed from the
street than formerly, the strge has
rot been rebuilt and the screen ha.s
been pushed further back, tliU3 re
taining practically the same length as
that of the old building. With this
expansion comes one hundred and
sixty additional new seats, making
the seating capacity of the new build
ing total seven hundred and fifty.
.New machines have been installed
which means better service, and that
will add much to the pleasure and be
havior of the patrons. " The most
striking feature is the new system of
ventilation which provides for a con
stant change of air. The breath-tak
ing atmosphere of the Old Pick was
one of, its annoying evils, and many
townspeople were driven .away on ac
count of it. A good system of ven
tilation, the abolition cf smoking, and
the curbing of foul language ought
to remedy this and give the people of
Chapel Hill a sanitary place to spend
a pleasant evening. " It is understood
that the managers of the Pickwick
Jiave a splendid program for the Sum
mer and Fall. ,
Gerrard Hall has served well in the
absence of a better place. Nice old
building that it is, it is not adaptable
for a movie house or theatre if more
than thirty or forty are present. The
posts have been annoying and that
caused a greater rush for seats. Al
though the show did not begin until
seven o'clock, six-thirty often found
all of the good seats occupied.
The passing of the Old Pick meant
the passing of peanuts. It remains
to be seen whether students will re
vive the old battles and continue te
fire peanuts at unsuspecting and un
guarded cocos. ' The management of
the new theatre has made no an
nouncements concerning peanuts, a
crons, and rocks, so it is hard to tell
just what will develop. The presence
of new machines and good lights may
aid in curbing this.

Jewish and non-Jewish elements, to

Dean Paulsen to Have
In order that each individual stu.
ednt might be given an opportunity to
be homeward bound with clean shirts
and other articles of clothing; the
Laundry Department is changing the
schedule for the acceptance of soiled
linen. Every student will have his
laundry back before Thursday night
of Examination week. Placards will
be placed in all Dormitories telling
when the laundry will be collected.
The entire Laundry organization will
work nights in order to have the work
out on time.
Mr. Paulsen says that they are do
ing all possible in order to give the
best possible service. A few students,
however, are working against their
own interest by being careless. The
Laundry is , compelled to retain
bundles' when the student fails to
comply with the few simple rules.
When the student fails to give his
correct address; his registration num
ber, to list his articles, or when he
does not have enough deposited to
cover the charges, he is blocking the
efficiency of tho department.
