Plans Providing for Greatly
Improved Entertainments Will
Be Submitted to Student Vote
Students in the College of Liberal Arts and probably those in the School
of Education, will vote next Thursday on a plan to provide an entertainment
fee to bemused in bringing high class lectures, dramatic entertainments, )and
musical programs to the campus, it was announced yesterday by Ed Hudgins,
President of the Student Body.
The . entertainment fee idea is the;
outgrowth ; of a campaign carried on;
through the editorial columns of the
Tar Heel for the past few weeks for
better lectures and musical programs
here. It was originally advanced by
Dave Carroll, former associate editor
of the campus newspaper. Definite
decision to submit the plan to a vote
of the Student Body was reached
Tuesday night at a meeting of a new
ly created Advisory Committee, com
posed of six seniors and four juniors
selected by the dean of the Liberal
Arts College from a list of fifteen ris
ing seniors and ten juniors, submitted
by the class presidents.
Under the proposed plan, Arts stu
dents would pay a fee of one dollar
a quarter, which would be added to
the fund provided by the University
and us ed to bring a number of attrac
tions to the campus during the school
year. A tentative list of lecturers in
eludes such men as Sherwood Ander
son, world-famous writer, Von Luck-
ner, German naval commander whose
astounding feats wrecked havoc with
the Allied shipping during the "World
War, Richard Halliburton, adventur
er, writer, and explorer, Williams
Beebe, naturalist and adventurer ex
traordinary, and a number of others
of equal calibre. A large number of
the best musical entertainments would J
be included in the schedule of attrac
tions made possible by the fee, as well
as dramatic presentations whenever
first-rate attractions were available.
The Arts schools would sponsor the
plan, and only students in these
schools would pay the fee. They would
be issued season tickets covering the
programs booked by the entertain
ments committee.: Students - in the
other schools would pay single admis
sions for the various events or pur
chase season tickets.
Student Booking Committee
The plan provides for an entertain
ments committee, with students hold
ing a majority of the places on the
body. All attractions would be book
ed by this committee.
At present the University appro
priation for lectures is five hundred
- dollars, the yearly sum that has been
provided for entertainments here for
the 'past thirty years. There is a pos
sibility that this amount will be
doubled in the budget ftfr next year,
according to officials of the Liberal
Arts College. Only two or three first
class lectures could be provided, how
ever, even with the increased appro
priation, according to authorities.
Entertainments fees similar to that
proposed here are now provided at
most of the larger colleges and uni
versities in the country. The plan in
force at North Carolina College 'for
Women at present is very similar to
the one that will be voted on here

beautiful girls that have visited the
Carolina campus in the past year are

Dr. For ster Talks
To The N. C, Club
On Farm Taxation
Dr. G. W. Forster of State College
addressed the North Carolina Club
Monday night at its final meeting of
the year in Saunders Hall on "Farm
Income and Farm Taxes."
Dr. Forster has recently completed
a farm survey for the State Tax Com
mission. It is said that this was the
paost comprehensive farm study' ever
made in the United States. The ob
jectives of the survey were three: (1)
to determine the percent of farm in
come absorbed by taxes; (2) to de
termine the ratio of assessed value of
farm land to-its true value; and (3)
to determine the aggregate amount
of taxes borne by agriculture and to
what extent the taxes are burdensome.
The investigation covered 1300
farms in 13 representative areas of
the state. The farms were located
in twenty-five counties. The farms
were selected at random so as to ob
tain fair and comprehensive data.
Tenant farmers were not considered,
since these had little bearing on such
a tax survey.
Mr. Forster pointed out that any
effort to get an accurate estimate of
the farmers' income is very difficult,
because there are so many items to
be taken into consideration. Some
questions that arise in making these
estimates are: what is the cost equiv
alent to home rent, firewood, and pro
duce raised and produced on the farm,
shall food consumed be estimated at
selling price or buying price, how
can one determine the amount of milk,
eggs, and vegetables consumed on the
farm? There were many more sim
ilar problems that had to be coped with,
This was the last meeting of the
year, and -a large percentage of the
members were present. It is said that
the club had a most successful year,
and prospects are bright for even a
better one next year.
Spanish Club Will
Hold Last Meeting
The last meeting . of the Spanish
Club for the year will take the form
of a Spanish supper at-the home of
Dr. N. B.. Adams on Pittsboro Road
tomorrow evening at six o'clock.
Cars will meet the club members
at the southwest campus gate near
the Carolina Inn at a quarter until
six o'clock, and carry them to Dr.

low the supper at which the officers
for next year will be elected. -

Add Spice to Latest
Wigue and Masque
(By Andy Andersoy)
(Reviewer's Note: This review was
done from dress rehearsal of "Whoops
M'Dear" Tiiesday night and should
be read with this in mind. A bom
fide review of the show Thursday
night will appear in Saturday's Tar
Heel. An early Tar Heel dead-line
made it impossible to review last
night's shorn hi today's paper.)
Little can be said of the Wigue and
Masque's revue of "Whoops M'Dear"
except that in , its entirety it is good.
This has been said in pre-views but
the reiteration is necessary."
Late yesterday afternoon over three
hundred seats had been sold which is
a record pre-sale for campus produc
tions and late reserved seat sales plus
the rush tickets last night should have
given the show a sell-out. Be that as
it may, crowd or no crowd, the show
at rehearsal was good and I don't
mean nothing else but.
There's no use in picking out an
individual star because that would
be practically impossible. The read
er will have to list unto the praise
given each performer in respective
The sets, costumes, and drops were
all made and arranged by members
of the production and the staff is to
be complimented. The lighting effects
are good and the sets merit much
praise. The makers certainly succeed
ed in producing burlesques. Gene Er-
win did more than well with the dan
ces for they were great and Al Kahn
arranged the skits, plus scenery, with
a high degree of exactness.
Wex Malone performed well at the
piano, considering an injure3 thumb,
and the piano instead of an orchestra
was an excellent idea. I liked it well
and as much for the novelty as for
the grace it lent the numbers.
"Buccaneer Bustle," "Ancient His
tory," "Hello Sucker," "Daddy Goes
A-Hunting," and "Collegiana" were
the hits of the show. But let's take
the show in order.
