The Patterson medal, awarded an nually to a University student for general excellence - in athletics, has been received and will soon be placed on display in a down-town window, according to Maryon Saunders, alum ni secretary, who has just received the 1929 award from Dr. J.

The quartet, which has made phonograph records for six re producing companies, is on its first tour of North Carolina, having re cently sung in New Bern, Greensboro, Charlotte, and Asheville. - They rank as one of the finest male quartets in the country. Prof. J. E. Woodhouse spoke on government over state WPTF during the ' University hour yesterday after noon from four to five. The musical part of the program was furnished by Jack Wardlaw and his banjo boys. "Individual independence is a good thing as long as it does not encroach on the rights of others, yet when any one walks on the grass of the cam pus he encroaches on the rights of others to have a beautiful campus," stated Dr. J. G. deR. Hamilton in a chapel talk yesterday morning in which he spoke not as a member of the faculty but as a member of the University community. In showing how the spirit to keep the grass looking well has gone down Dr. Hamilton told how he had notic ed the beauty of the grass in the rec tangle between the South Building and Franklin Street when he first came to the University over forty years ago. Dr. Hamilton admired the beauty of the grass, and wonder ed how it was kept so. For a long time he was unable to find out why the grass was so beautiful, but later an alumnus told him that the literary societies used to fine those who walk ed on the grass a dollar for each of fense. Now there are beaten paths across the grass in many parts of the cam pus. The path from the post office entrance of the campus to the corner of Old East is probably the worst, but there are many others which de tract from the beauty of the campus. There seems to be no sentiment against walking on the grass now, but if this class (speaking of the Freshmen) would try to create a sen timent against it, the influence would increase and go to the other classes and the untrodden grass would sig nify to the visitors that we are not lazy or thoughtless. "I am calling your attention to something that will be worthwhile to the individual and also to the class as a whole," said" Dr. Hamilton in concluding his talk. , Mac Gray will speak this morning on the same subject, but he will dis cuss the problem from the student's point of view.

Council Explains Owing to several comments on the recent action in which a number of students were fined "for standing in the street while bumming, it seems that many of the students believe that bumming is prohibited. Such, however, is not the case, and Mayor Council states that anyone is at per fect liberty to bum as long as he does not stand in the street. It was only to protect the students themselves and to prevent congestion of traffic that this ordinance was passed, and not to deprive anyone of the right to bum.
