Proposed Student Tax Would

Artists to the Local Campus

Authorities of the College of Arts Submit a Tentative List of
Entertainers Who Could Probably Be Brought
Here if Plan is Passed.
. In response to numerous letters and
articles appearing in the Ta Heel
providing for cultural entertainments,
the authorities of the Liberal Arts
College have gained valuable infor
mation as to the cost of bringing high
class lecturers, musicians, and drama
tic entertainers here..
The cost of procuring musical and
dramatic entertainments ranges from
three hundred dollars to twenty-five
hundred dollars. With the present en
tertainment appropriations one of
these could be had. Heretofore only
lecturers have been brought and art
loving students have depended on lo
cal talent, or have had to go away in
order to be able to hear famous con-
certs or lectures.
Some of the solo artists that could
be brought here should the plan of the
three dollar tax be passed include
world famous singers: Margarete Met
zendhauer, Rosa Ponselle, Maria Jerit
za, Louis Graveure, Chaliapin, . and
Sophie Braslau. Of the pianists, Har

HELD LAST MEET
Organization Completes One of
Most Active Years in Exis
tence; Presidents Elected.
The last meeting of the Carolina
Dormitory Club was held Tuesday
night, May 22, m the social rooms of
the Episcopal Church. This organiza
tion.composed of the presidents and
managers of the dormitories, an Exe
cutive Secretary appointed by the
Dean of Students, and the Dean of
Students as ths university represen
tative, has experienced one of the
most active years in its existance as
a campus organization. There were
thirty men present at the meeting.
Presidents and vice-presidents ? elect
ed for next year.
The purpose of the Carolina Dor
mitory Club is "to provide for the
government of the member dormitories
so as to furnish the maximum of
comfort and social life to the occu
pants of the same. In carrying out
this policy, the Dormitory Club takes
responsibility for the proper govern
ment of the dormitories, the orien
tation and assimilation of new men in
the dormitories each year, the dor
mitory smokers, elections oversees the
participation of the dormitory in the
intramural athletic program, and at
tends to all other matters that inter
est the dormitories as a unit. The
Dormitory Club acts as a discussion
group and clearing house for the
ideas "of the various dormitory offi
cers that compose the group.
During the past year, the dormitory
social life has been on the up-grade,
as far as intergration, socialization,
interest and the "we-feeling", is con
cerned, ine tiuo was iortunate in
securing ,as members a wide-awake
group of men who were really inter

blems. At the first meeting of the
Club this year,- dissatisfaction" con
cerning the organization of the dor
mitory as a social unit was voiced.
A plan was presented providing for
a dormitory council to govern the dor
mitory. Representatives from each
floor of the dormitory were elected
by the occupants of that floor to sit
on the" dormitory council, and the
president of the dormitory was to sit
as ex-officio chairman of the council.
This council was to consider any
breaches of discipline and distur
bance in the dormitory and to have
power to warn and expel the constant

by john mebane
The final issue of the Carolina
Magazine, while falling quite a bit
short of the excellency of the Negro
Poetry Number, is about up to the
average issue of the publication.
A poem and drawing by Marilee
Shaw lead off the number. The
drawing, despite the fact that the
white lines are left on the silhouette
and the moon is a bit lop-ided, isn't
bad at all. Which doesn't mean that
we can say as much for the poem.
The first stanza is good, but the au
thor changes in the second one from
the third person to the first.

ferent languages. Joseph, Mitchell
goes on a rampage and writes Friday

estimation. The style is unique, and
he doesn't write so much that it be
comes tiresome reading.
Henry Brandis, a local aspirant to
the bar (which we use legally),
writes about the law. Our objection
to the piece is that the oratorical style,
which inevitably appears in any law
yer's journalistic attempts, pervades
throughout the article.? Yet, he is to
be commended on .the fact that his
ideas get across clearly.

ally direct and stage three plays!
"The Constant Lover," "The Mirror,"
and "Francois' Luck." Three plays
were given last night, the three to
night will conclude the series.
The student producers anounce that
the production will not be connected
with the Playmakers in any way, and
no "plays of native Carolinians" Will
be on the bill.
In two of the Plays presented 1 to
night, the actors are students. How
ever, in the third, "Francois Luck,"
an unusual experience takes place.
The cast of this play is entirely re
stricted to the faculty and their wives.
The play, as the title suggests, is
French. According to one of the wit
nesses of the rehearsal, "the charac
ters romp through the play and do
their best to destroy the moral tone
set by Professor George McKie, who
plays the second leading role." The
lead is "the type that appeals to wo
