REPORTS SHOW 82
Tw enty-one States Represented
During Summer Terms; Two
Eighty two candidates, or nearly
as many as were in the regular gra
duating class ten years -ago, were
awarded degrees as the result of
work ' completed during summer
school. - ; - u ; '"' '
There were no formal exercises at
which the degrees r were presented
in person as was done last year,
when the University held a "Little"
Commencement," but the coveted
diplomas were forwarded to the ap
plicants who did not choose to wait
until next commencement.
Two doctorates were . awarded.
.They were in philosophy, the suc
cessful candidates being Harrington
Cooper Brearly, of Clemson College,
S. C, and Roy Williamson Morrison
of Chapel Hill.
This session of summer school
showed another record- enrollment.
The quality of work was excellent
and there were virtually no cases
requiring disciplinary action, says
the report of Director N. W. Walker.
Student government was adopted
for the first time and apparently
proved highly satisfactory.
Twenty two states and the District
of Columbia and Cuba were repre
sented in the enrollment.
Registrar Wilson's report shows
that a' total of 2,666 . students were
enrolled for the two terms. For the
first term there were 1,752, and for
the second term 904. Since each
term constitutes a 'unit of time, these
figures represent the actual instruc
tional load. Deducting the 637 stu
dents who were registered in both
terms the number of individual stu
dents rfor the summer quarter is
found to be 2,019. In 1927 there
were 1,989, and in 1926 here were
1,750; in 1925 there were 1,733.
The men outnumbered the women
in the second term. ' In the first
term there were 729 men and 1023
women; in the second term there
were 484 men . and 420 women. Ele
ven hundred and nine .in the first
term and 161 ' others - in the second
term (a total of 1,270 individuals)
had taught. Two, hundred and e;ght
in the first term and 17 others in
the second term (a total of 225) were
preparing to teach. .

Yearly Struggle of Fraternities
In Mad Rush to Secure New

With Opening of the Rushing
Season. ' ' : , ' ' '

A period of more scheming and
struggling than either election or
registration day broke upon the cam
pus last-Friday with the official open
ing of rushing season. Although to
some , this period means less than
nothing,- to a great many it is the
omnipotent and almighty Judgement
Day itself. ' Upon this day the great
god freshman nervously sits his. gilded
pedestal, while a' retinue of Greek
sycophants fawn upon him and serve
him with spiced adulation. - To mor

with his dad's lucre ; - but - being a

Without let or hindrance the strife

into the frosh ranks, and from the
minute the bars are let down tongue,
hand, and pocketbook. make eloquent
word i and' gesture' of friendship,
faith,, and. loyalty. Freshmen hearts
beat high with hope, or low with
despair, according to whether they are
