All the nominations for offices, 19 in

Nominations for class officers will be
held Monday night, March 29, though

not yet been determined. By virtue of
the outcome of the recent ballot to
separate the offices of president and

offices are now open this year. This
will cause four offices to be filled in the
senior and junior classes and five in
the sophomore. --
Voting will be by secret ballot, as in
the past, but the polling places have not
been decided upon. President Fordham
states, however, that the student body
will be notified of the proper place to
cast ballots before the day of elections.

Pour Horsemen Considered
Desired Too High.
The resignation of Coach William
McK. Fetzer from the University coach
ing staff last fall ended the five year
regime of the Feker brothers, Bob and
Bill, at the head of the Tar Heel ath
letics and forced the alumni and the
business office to begin angling around
for a possible successor or successors.
At that time It was generally believed
that one man would be secured to aid
Coach Bob FeUzer In the developing of
Tar Heel athletic teams, but the a
thorjties Ijx charge of the matter have
adopted a broader policy, and the Uni
versity now has in the process of forma
tion one of the most complete coach
ing staffs in the country.
"Four Horsemen" Considered
Numerous prospective coaches were
considered during the meetings of the
Cching Committee, among the names
under consideration being some of the
most prominent athletes in the recent
years of the country's gridiron, court
and diamond history. Harry Stuhl
dreher and Don Miller, two members of
the famous- "Four Horsemen" backfleld
of the NotreDame 1921 football team,
came to the "Hill" for personal confer
ences with the committee, but their
Prices were too high, negotiations
were called to a halt.
Good Men Finally Signed
After all the negotiations however
none of those men were given the job,
nd the Coaching Committee went fur
ther afield to nab some of the best men
tors in the country. Lester "Belding,
former star end in" football and track
Rtr for the University of Iowa, was the
Ural to be definitely signed. He starred

The University allows a course credit

Among those acquainted with educa
tional conditions throughout the country,
the University of North Carolina has
come to be recognized as the leading
educational itistitution in the South. It
is the oldest state university, in the coun
try, its cornerstone having been laid 181
years ago Hinton James of Wilmington
was the first student to matriculate.
He walked all the way from Wilming
ton through the muddy roads of those
days to get to Chapel Hill,
. On every hand one now finds an abun
dance of testimony of the regard in which
the university is held by educators
throughout the country. Only last year
the. University, institutionally and
through its faculty, held the presidency
of four of the largest educational groups
in America. These were the Asociation
of American Universities, the American
Association of College Registrars, the
American Asociation of Professional
Schools for Social Work, and the Nation
al Educational Research Association.
Growth of the University
The growth of the University during
the last half century has been unique
in the history of deucational institutions.
Today there is a faculty of 175 and a
student body of approximately 2,500,
Forty per cent of the faculty hold de
grees from the institutions in which they
give intruction. In place of a campus
of eight buildings and a few acres of
50 years ago now one finds a campus
of 44 buildings and ,106 acres, not to
mention 500 acres contiguous to the
campus and already- partly Jaid off in
walks anu drives.
: More than 72,000 students have received
instruction from, the University during
the past fifty years. Enrolled for the
regular nine months terra have been
45,000, or the summer terms, 20,000 and
for extension classes and correspondence
courses, 7,000. One of the chief reasons
for the large enrollment is the diversity
of work offered: by Carolina. The instruction-departments.
are divided into
the College, of Libewl of Liberal Arts,

To one reviewing the new bill of Caro

program seems to have been a variation
from the realistic folk-drama which the
Playmakers usually present. Two of the
plays were fantasies and one was a
drama o ffarm life. Although they were
plays of romance and imagination, It
was evident that they were drawn from
folk-imaginations and legends; and they
thereby presented a new phase of folk
literature. die 'best recent Playmaker productions,
