There are many- improvements
which are to he maae tms year ana
which will make the annual superior
to 'any published in recent years.
First, the book will be larger in size.
There will be more space provided
for advertisements and- for pictures.
Due to the increased size of the book
there will be six individual pictures
on each page of the Senior Section,
but the cuts will be no smaller. As
usual there will be only ten Junior
pictures on each page of the Junior
. section. .
The statistics of each Junior and
Senior will be published under their
names .according to last year's plan,
and also continuing last year's policy
there will be no writeups for each
Senior. This was discontinued last
year as a result of the fact that
there were too many writeups of the
same nature, and that it was. unne--eessary.
There will be no comic sec
tion in this year's publication which
will relieve the readers of the task of
reading the customary slapstick com
edy which has been injected into the
publication in format years.
There will be no sponsor section
this year inasmuch as that alsd was
considered by the staff as being un
necessary. The Vanity Pair,, section
.will be continued, but the most beau

Playmakers Object to Publicity
To the Editor of THE TAR HEEL: - .
Dear Mr. Editor: ...
,1 am sorry that THE TAR HEEL saw fit to give so much "prom
inence to the announcement" of certain invitations that have come to
.The Playmakers for broadcasting .and recording some of their plays
in New York. " V " , . ' .
The fact is that The Playtaakers have been invited to broadcast
some of. their plays at the time of their performances at Columbia
University, and there is a possibility of a Vitaphone reproduction, also.
; .'.The references to a summer tour are misleading.. No plans have
yet been considered for accepting any such invitations. -I
appreciate thV interest of THE TAR HEEL in our work, but
I regret that the facts in the case have been over-stated.

To the Y Officials
The first of a series of three sem
inars which are being sponsored by
the University for the executives of
the sixteen districts of the Boy Scouts
of America in North Carolina was
held here last Friday and Saturday.
The meeting convened last Friday
afternoon and was officially opened
by Professor H. D. Meyers of the so
ciology department. Topics' dealing
with the pure sciences were discuss
ed. Dr. R. E. Coker of , the biology
department and Dr. H. R. Totten of
the botany department ; gave short
talks on their respective fields. The
evening session. was turned over : to
Dr. Collier Cobb . of the geology de
partment who set ' forth - the advan
tages of geology."
The morning session on Saturday
was in charge of Dr. J. M." Bell of
the Chemistry department and Dr.
Otto Stuhlman of the physics de
partment who also gave . brief .talks.
During the afternoon, the executives
were the guests of the' Athletic As
sociation at the Carolina-Georgia
Tech foot ball game.
Each executive expressed his de
sire to have the . seminars continued
in the future. The delegates to the
meeting spoke highly of the Univer
sity professors who made the semi
nars possible. .
It has been the custom of the Uni
versity in the past .years to offer
to the Bov Scouts to
show its interest in the Scout move
ment. Two years v ago a camp : was
held on Emerson Field for all patrol
leaders in North Carolina. - Last year
an Extension 'Service was offered to
all scout masters.
The next seminar will be in Chapel
Hill, February 22 and 23 and social
science will be discussed. The third
seminar will be" early in April and
th Professional School . will have
charge of the discussion.' w
D. D. Carrol, chairman of . the
special University v committee on
Physical Education, has reported to
the president that the committe feels
that 'one bf'the most urgent needs of
the University at the present time is
an adequate gymnasium. .
After an extensive survey of the
subject ' the group recommends that
official approval be made of super
vised physical training during fresh
man and sophomore years and ' that
the work be given the same academic
credit as laboratory work. They also
suggest that .such training be made
compulsory for, a Bachelor's degree.
Another' recommendation the com
mittee makes is that every student in
the University be required to under
go "physical examinations once yearly.
It also desires the University to offer
formal , courses in gymnasium work.
; The members of the committee who
have sought to raise the standard of
physical training here are:- D. D.
Carroll, chairman ; C. A. Hibbard,
A. VV Hobbs, L H. Manning, F, F.
Bradshaw, R. B, House , . and N. W.
