Resolves Say North Carolina in
a State of Political Dry-Rot;
Vote According to InteUigence
Rather than Tradition.
Meeting in Manning Hall Wednes
day night, the Republican Club of the
University unanimously endorsed Her
bert Hoover as its preference for, the
Republican nominee in the national
convention at Kansas City this sum-!
6. R. Jonas, Lincolnton, retiring
pr&sident of the Club, officiated as
chairman. Algernon L. Butler of Clin
to was elected to succeedJonas, and
J. A. Williams of Hendersonville was
selected as secretary.
It was emphasized at the meeting
that Hoover is a national rather. than
a seetional candidate, and the argu
raeat was advanced that he is the
most logical candidate for the Repub
lican - semination because of his ex
celleat political record.
The Republican. Club has existed on
the campus for nearly a quarter of
a eJuiury. It rarely meets except
during the year preceding a presiden
tial lection, when it is always formed
anew. It has convened several times
this spring, and several meetings are
plasited for the remainder of the quar
ter., A number of campus student
leaders are included in its member
ship this year.
Three resolutions were passed by
the club Wednesday; night! They were
"Resolved, that it is the sense of
the meeting that this assemblage go
on record as recognizing the neces
sity for an organization of perma
nent nature on this campus for the
encouragement of discussion and con
sideration of state and national polit
ical issues. Wherefore, the meeting
endorses the previous policy of the
Republican Club of the University of
North Carolina and announces its
firm allegiance to the principles of
the Republican Party and its enthusi
asm for the coming campaign.
"Resolved, that North Carolina is
in a state of political dry-rot result
ing from an abundance of politicians
and scarcity of statesmen. That the

Senator Burton, of Ohio, Will
Speak for Republican Party

G. O. P. Leader and ' Staunch
Hoover Supporter Will Come"
to Chapel Hill.
BATTLE UNABLE TO COME
Burton Appearing on Invitation
of Tar Heel and Local Repub
lican Club; Once Candidate
Senator Thomas E. Burton, of
Ohio, floor leader of the Republican
party in Congress and fiery G. O. P.
leader, will address Carolina students
Wednesday night April 11 at 7:30
o'clock in Memorial Hall, it was an
nounced yesterday afternoon by C.
R. Jonas, president of the local Re
publican club. Senator Burton is
making the keynote address Wednes
day morning before the state Repub
lican convention in Raleigh, and at the
invitation of the Tar Heel and Repub
lican club has consented to speak in
Chapel Hill that night. ... -
Senator Burton is a -staunch-supporter
of Herbert Hoover for presi
dent, a fact which is quite remarkable
in view of the fact that he was a fellow-legislator
with the late Senator
Willis, of Ohio, who. was, before his
recent death, seeking the Republican
nomination for president as the fav
orite son of Ohio. Burton is expected
to make a plea from the Memorial
Hall platform for Hoover.- -
Though still known Jy the name of
"Senator," Burton is no longer -a
member of the upper house. He was
a member of the senale two years ago,
but is at the present time represent
ing Ohio in the House. He is one of
the few men in the country ever to
retire from one legislative body ' to
re-enter a lower group.
In 1916 Burton was the favorite
son of Ohio for president and. receiv
ed a number of ballots at the Repub
lican (National convention. He is no
longer a candidate for . president,
however, but is an active leader in his

GRAIL DANCE IS
Kay Kyser Orchestra to Furnish
Music and Make Last Ap
pearance on the Hill.
Tonight the gymnasium will be the
scene of the first of the grail dances
planned forthis quarter.
Decorations for the dance are coqt
sidered among the most effective ever
used here and are the same as used
for the Junior Prom last night. The
Carolina blue and white were effect
ively carried out by Frazier Glenn
and Walter Crissman in a scheme of
festoons and chandeliers which lend
a particular charm to the hall.
Music for the occasion will be fur
nished by Kay Kyser and his orches
tra. This will be the last dance the
orchestra will play for in this section
before starting for the north.
The dance tonight promises -to be
one of the best to be sponsored by the
Grail and will , doubtless be attended
by a charming aggregation of girls
who have come to the hill to attend
the Junior Prom and the Theta Kap
pa Nu -dance. Dancing conditions will
doubtless be better than ever too, since
the majority of the boys are leaving
for the Easter week-end.
The Grail will uphold its usual
policy of limiting the stags, however,
and will issue only a limited number
of stag" tickets. The -sale of these
tickets will begin at the rear entrance
of the gym at 8:30.
Harrell Declines to
Run for Editorship
Of the Yackety-Yack
Linwood P. Harrell, Publication
Unions nominee for editor of the
Yackety Yack along with June Adams
and Watts Farthing, announced his
withdrawal from the race in a letter
to Bill Perry, president of the . U.
Board yesterdays Harrell, according
to his letter, states that his - experi
ence on tlfe staff leads him to believe
that the editorship demands a matur
ity and judiciousness possessed by
few juniors, and for that "reason re
quests the Union to. .withdraw his
nomination for the position.
The withdrawal of Harrell leaves
only Adams and Farthing in the race
for the position of editor. Both of
the candidates are rising seniors,
while Harrell is a rising junior.
. Harrell also states in his letter that
he wishes to thank the Union for their
expression of confidence in his work
for the past two years.

Closing Session Sees Movement
for Little Theatre Organiza
lhe closing ol the hrst session
Thursday night of the Efastern Re
gional Conference of Drama held at
the University under the auspices of
the Carolina Playmakers and the Ex
tension Division saw a movement
launched toward the formation of a
national organization of little thea
tres. - 4
Arthur Cloetingh, Pennsylvania,
made a motion declaring that "it is
the sense of this meeting that the
national committee on Drama region
al conferences be requested to study
the question of unifying the little
theatre groups throughout the coun
try with the view of forming even
tually a permanent national organiza
tion of these groups'." This motion
was adopted by the assembly.
Dr.- S. Marion Tucker of the Brook
lyn Polytechnic Institute made an ad
dress in which he set forth the needs
for a national bureau of information
and service for the non-professional
stage. The speaker recommended New
York . City as the logical place for
such a clearing house. Dr. Tucker
declared that a high type of man was
needed to manage such a bureau.
He stated that the diificulty of uni
fication was being made difficult by
the numerous , non-professional thea
tres scattered over the country be
lieving themselves mostly . self-suffi
cient and believing that they have
nothing to give each other.
The Carolina Theatre presented
three of their folk plays as a closing
feature of the assembly.
Miss Katherine Emmett, represent
ing the Actor's Equity Association,
when called upon for her opinion con
cerning the trend among little thea
tre groups to import professional
stars to play the. leading roles and
using local talent for the supporting
cast, expressed herself as being highly
in favor of such a plan. "Such an
arrangement should provexan inspira-
tion to both local players and to the
professional stage," she declared.
At the close of the afternoon ses
sion the delegates were taken on a
sight-seeing tour which ended at the
Forest Theatre. Here Miss Emmett
and Urban T. Holmes, of the Univer
sity faculty, read a scene from
Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Ven
ice." "A number of addresses were made
at the morning session on the prob
Jems of the little theatre. 'These dis
cussions dealt largely with the financ
es, technical training, public-sympathy
and the theatre buildings.

Monday against Maryland was a

games against Pennsylvania were
hard fought affairs and neither was

New York Governor - Receives
Campus Majority; May .
Al Smith polled a total of 476 votes
out of the 685 cast to establish him
self as. the overwhelming favorite of
the University students for the Demo
cratic nomination for president in the
primary conducted here Thursday.
The New York Governor was sec
onded by Senator Jim Reed, of Mis
souri, who spoke here recently. Sen
ator Reed received 148 votes, while
Senator Walsh was third with 56
votes. .Three votes were cast for
Ritchie, while William G. McAdoo and
James W. Davis, who was overwhelm
ingly defeated by Coolidge four years
ago, received only one vote each.
Considerable interest was aroused
among the students by the primary.
The Smith adherents conducted "a
rather systematic campaign for their
favorite, and campus politicians had
predicted that the primary would re
sult in an overwhelming Smith vic
tory. They stated that Senator Reed's
recent speech here helped to boost the
New York governor's stock as well
as his own, for he extolled much the
same principles as those for which
- In .connection with the issuance of
the returns from the primary, Taylor
Bledsoe, who is directing the strong
Smith movement here, stated that he
would be invited to speak here this
spring. His planned - vacation at
Asheville would make it comparative

off and cpme to the University to
speak, and Tar Heel officials are
working with the Smith leaders on
the campus in an effort to secure his
acceptance of their invitation to ap
Bledsoe also announced that dele
gates from the University would
attend the State-wide Smith rally at
Charlotte April 14, when ex-Judge
Tarn Bowie and Judge Frank Carter

of sending delegates to the rally.
