The following letter was handed to
the President by Senator Milne and
was read to the Senate:
Gentlemen of the Dialectic Senate.
Dear sirs: v
During my freshman year, I, like
every other first-year man, suffered
from many delusions. One of these
was that the Dialectic Senate was an
organization composed of students in
terested in liberal and eloquent ex
pression. The past three years have
been spent in disillusionment.
I regret thai; I can no logner find
a vestige of worthwhile activity in
the Dialectic Senate. As you must
inwardly know, however, it is at pres
ent only a battlefield for cheap debate
and questionable politics. As I con
sider the recent occurrences within
'ts halls, I cannot regard my entrance
into the organization as other than an
act of freshman indiscretion. ,
Please consider this my formal res
ignation. 1 , ., : ; ,
Yours truly, , ' - .
DAVID D. CARROLL
In answer to. the resignation ten
dered the Di- by Senator Carroll the
Senate did not see fit to grant Sen
ator Carroll his resignation but be
cause of unpaid dues and recent ac
tions in the hall that tended to de
rogate from the dignjty of the Sen
ate he was granted a dishonorable
discharge by vote of 19 to 3. '
The Senate was very glad, to ac
cept from the hands of Senator Ken
nett a cane that in the past has been
the property of the Di but had been
lost for some three years. This -is
the original cane, purchased by the
for presidents to use as a matter
f dignity when acting as the chief
official of the Senate. This cane has
the following inscriptions on its at
tractive golden head. "The Dialectic

(Booloo Makes Annual Pick; cUhe
List Is Posted in Store Window
Sid ChappelPs choice as All Time
All American H. A. and Roach fea
tured the annual Booloo Club selec
tions, which were posted in the show
window of Patterson's Drug Store yes
terday morning. Dave Carroll receiv
ed the doubtful honor of Permanent
Booloo, while Billy Koenig was made
President of the Club for next year.
Large crowds flocked around the
lists all day, and the prevailing senti
ment seemed to be that unusual good
judgment was used in picking the new
members. About seventy-five indivi
duals made at least one of the num
erous clubs and offices.
Every year the Imperial Order of
Booloos, an organization whose origin
is ' shrouded in mystery and whose
name carries with it a certain un
flattering significance, selects the big
gest "shines" an asses on the campus
to make up its membership for the
next year. The term "Booloo," ap
plied to a person, has come to carry
with it a certain half humorous, half
derisive stigma on the campus. : It
is generally thought of an synonom
ous with the terms "jackass,"
"dumbbell," and . "ignoramus." The
Booloo Club itself is never heard of
except at the annual selection of new
members, supposedly made by men
picked for the club the preceding year.
The selection takes place during the
last week or two of the spring quar
ter, and the results are posted at Pat
terson's Drug Store. "Shine" How

dell of Asheville, was elected captain
for next year to succeed "Dune" El
gin, and Caesar . Cone, Greensboro,

sition. In the Southern meet he
eliminated Berry Grant of Georgia

win the tournament and then pro
ceeded to "defeat several other play
ers of the first calibre to gain his

TOUR OF EUROPE
To Leave July 30th and Return
September 6th; under Patron
age of Ambassadors Herrick
The theaters of of London and Paris
will provide the stages for the Uni
versity of North Carolina Glee Club
when that organization carries its
reputation and fame to foreign fields
next summer. Under the guardian
wings of Ambassadors Houghton and
Herrick,. France and England will be
toured, where publicity and prestige
will doubtless be added to the Uni
The Club sails from Hoboken July
30th, on the S. S. New Amsterdam,
and will land at Plymouth on or about
August 7th. . In England, concerts at
the American Club, Stratford-on-Avon,
the receipts of which will be
donated toward the rebuilding of the
Shakespeare Theater, and a large
benefit concert in London for the
Queen Alexandria Memorial will com
prise part of the itinerary. .
On August 23rd the Club will sail
for Paris, where the Fournet, a hotel
highly favored by student-travelers,
will be their headquarters. Concerts
will be presented at American Church,
St. Lukes, and other Parisian centers.
In the interim, to forestall any symp
toms of staleness among the song
sters, trips will be made to Versailles
and some of the larger battlefields.
September 6th, the Club leaves for
Boulogne, where it will sail on the
Volendam for New York about a
week later, arriving approximately a
week before the University opens for
the fall quarter.
In the personage of Dr. T. J. Wil
son, Registrar of the University, the
Club has had an invaluable support
er. Dr. Wilson, while on a tour of
Europe this Spring, visited the am
bassadors of England and France,
from whom many helpful suggestions
and directions were obtained.
To Ernest F. Young, business man
ager of the Club, and Paul J, Weaver,
head of the University Music De
partment, most of the credit for a
successful tour will fall. Owing to
the efforts of these gentlemen, spec
ial travel rates, minimized individual
expense, and other greatly desired
commodities have been obtained. -
The club will assemble at Chapel
Hill July 14th, where it will rehearse
during the week. Then it proceeds
to New York, giving concerts en
route, and will be honored there by a
reception at the City Hall. Later,
Mayor "Jimmy" Walker will wish
them "bon voyage." All indications
at present point toward an enjoy
able and profitable trip.
