"You have a great work to, do in
music in," this country," an English
man told an American' audience in a
lecture here at the University Tues
day night on musical history. v )
" You've got to raise your standards
of musical taste all the ,way through.
It is not enough to have musical
power. You must have taste. '
"You are. crazed for modern music.
Get back to the classics. Know your
Bach, your Handel, your Beethoven,
your Mozart, your Haydn, and all the
other masters.' Get a foundation d
understand music, and then it will be
a great message to you."

charmed a rather large audience of
students, faculty members, and towns

Playing selections i from time to
time to illustrate his lecture, Mr. Fow
les .took upmusioal history with the
Stone Age and traced 'it down to
present times. i
Concluding his story, Mr. Fowles
pointed out that music has its roots
in the beginning of history, that
music in antiquity filled the same
purpose with man even if he had not
the means of expressing it, that it is
a great, great language.
He made his plea for the classics
and urged: "Measure this great art
and its development riot by the puny
standards of our own day but by the
magnificence " of its appeal through
5,000 year's."
He closed his leqture with a piano
selection of one of Beethoven's great

? That the level of faculty salaries
be increased, . that a system of re

set up, ; and that a flexible fund be
established for rewarding individual
achievement, were among the recom

Board of Trustees at their winter
meeting here today by President
Harry W. Chase in his annual report.
Taking a look at the future, Dr.
Chase urged that some immediate
step be taken toward increasing- the
level of faculty salaries. " 1

manager joi the now tri-weekly, urged
all the Freshmen to consider the four
plans that have been isuggested and to
decide which of them is the most prac
tical so that he will be ready to cast
his preferential ballot in the referen

In introducing Alexander, Mr. Brad
shaw said that it is very important
that the Freshman know all about
these plans, for in any campus-wide
referendum the Freshmen cast about
half of the ballots. Unless the Fresh

involved, serious results are liable to

tion passed the Assembly with an
overwhelming majority.
v
Speaker Ray opened fire on the
resolution saying, "that the proposal
of a daily Tar Heel is unnecessary,
unwise, and will prove burdensome
because its history has not justified
such an expansion."
Representative Harrell came to the
rescue of the proposal for a daily
Tar Heel by saying, "that the Tar
Heel has grown to the point that
a daily was a necessity." He further
stated that there wouid be no increase
in the publication fee, and explained
the four ways of vfinancing the daily
as proposed by the student-activities
committee.
Representative Carr urged every
man to support the resolution, because
it was one, of the wisest steps ever
taken toward better activities, and
would do much in giving the Univer-

Dr. Chase made his formal report

Students to Select One Plan
Of Financing Daily Tar Heel
A few students are under a de-
cided misapprehension concerning
the proposed daily Tar Heel. In
some occult manner they have
formed , the idea that establish
ment of the student paper on a
daily basis would mean placing in
operation all four of the methods
of financing the paper appearing
on the : student' ballot, as outlined
in the last issue of the Tar Heel.
. This is entirely false. k
One of the following plans of
financing ' the daily will be
'adopted.
; 1. Combination of the Carolina
Magazine into a semi-monthly
literary supplement to the daily
Tar Heel. ;
2. Abolition of the Buccaneer.
3. Simplification of the Yackety
Yack. ::.:Sy :
4. Reapportionment of all stu
dent publications fees with utili
zation of the surplus now in the
Publications Union treasury to
meet a probable vdeficit.
Establishment of the Daily Tar
Heel will open adoption, of only
one of these methods of financing,
and student fees will not be in
creased in any case. If the Yaclf
ety Yack is simplified, the Buc
caneer and Magazine will continue
just as they are. Conversely, if
the Magazine is combined into a
supplement to the Tar Heel, jio
change will be made iri the Yack
ety. Yack" or the Buccaneer, and
if the Buccaneer is abolished the '
other two publications will remain
just as they are.
The four plans of financing will
be voted on in order of prefer en
The voter will indicate his ' first,
second, third and fourth choice on
the ballot. First choice will count
four units, second choice- three,
third choice , two, and fourth
choice one. The plan that re-,
ceives the highest number of units
