team, composed of Avin Sable, Roy

This was one of the best and most
interesting "debates held- at Chapel

attendance was larger than lisual at
such affairs. Both teams appeared
to have adequate knowledge of the

Rules in Effect on the Univer
sity Campus Are Enforced
On Tours.
, jBy Donald - Wood
The Glee Club of the University of
North Carolina travels about as much
as any other organization here.
JE very quarter there is a long trip of
a week or ten days, and sometimes
there are several short trips of week
ends or one night performances.
While the members are away from
the Hill, the student body often won
ders just what they are doing besides
giving concerts. The popular sus
picion is voiced in the words of one
fellow who said the other day, "Gee,
I'd like to go on some, trips with the
Glee Club. I hear they have some
plenty wild times while they are
If any member of the club who par
ticipates in the trips is asked about
the conduct of the club while gone,
he passes off the question with a
wink and leaves the questioner as
much in the dark about what really
goes on as he was before. Conse
quently, the purpose of this article is
to really explain what really does
happen after the club gives its con
certs in the various towns and cities
that they visit. ,
In the first place, the rules of the
campus go with the club in effect
wherever it goes. This applies not
only in theory but in actual practice.
Discipline is enforced at all times, and
it is surprising to know how coopera
tive are the members' who are for
tunate enough to make the trips, in
maintaining order and upholding the
morale of the club. ' There is very,
very little drinking, if any, done by
the members while away on tour. Of
course there are times when there
is some drinking, but those times1 are
very few and far between. There are
parties given in practically every
town in which the club, makes an ap
pearance, and at many of these par
ties and dances whiskey ana wine
flow freely, even as at every affair
of similar nature elsewhere, but it is
a safe bet to say that the members of
the Glee Club know how to take care
of themselves under all conditions,
and the club has never been refused
a return engagement to a town on ac
count of excessive drinking in that
place. The rule that the violation of
the Volstead Act, as defined by th
University Student Council, will re
sult in the guilty parties being sent
back to the campus immediately and
reported to proper authorities is al
ways present in the eyes of the club
members. ".
The club is kept together by a re
gulation which prohibits any member
from travelling apart or in groups
separate from the rest of the club.
The members who make the trip must

Dean McCormick of the University
Law school, speaking Monday after
noon over station WPTF at Raleigh,
discussed . the problem of the desir
ability of the jury system as a part of
the machinery of justice. Addressing
his unseen audience, he pointed out
the merits and defects of the present
system and named the various reme
dies which have been suggested- to re
lieve the latter. He said in part:
' "In the first place, the critics say
that in many cases the jury will be
swayed by passion or prejudice rather
than by cool reason they say, that in
a case involving the liquor laws, the
jury is often influenced as much by
the community feeling for or against
prohibition as by the guilt or innc
cence of the man on trial. '
"A second charge which is directed
against juries is that they are igno
rant and mentally untrained to deal
with the difficult problems which are
often involved in lawsuits.
7 "A third accusation which is made
against the jury is that it is expensive.
"Finally, a principal charge which
is leveled against the jury system, is
that it is unbearably slow. In the
first place the jury's ignorance and
the openness to prejudice, of which
I have spoken, have necessarily caus

Annual Engineering School
Dance at Carolina Inn and
Lawyers Association Ball at
Two dances wijl be held in Chapel
Hill tomorrow ; night by student or
ganizations. The Law School Asso
ciation will stage a dance in the gym
nasium, and the Engineering students
will hold their annual ball in the ball
room of. the Carolina Inn.
The V annual Engineers' dance, :
sponsored by the local student chap- -ters
of the A.S.C.E. and A.I.E.E.. is
to be held from 'nine until one at
the Carolina Inn. Plans are " now
under way for the decoration of the
ball room in an appropriate manner.
Special and novel lighting arrange
ments will unite with Jack Wardlaw's
music in producing a proper terpis
chorean , atmosphere. K
At a recent meeting of the En
gineering School it was recommended
by the dance committee that the dance
be informal. Since that time, how
ever, sufficient financial returns have
been guaranteed, and the committee
has decided that the dance 'will be
formal, as originally planned by the
two societies.
According to members of the dance
committee, enthusiasm for the dance
is quite high among the Engineering
students, and it is felt that this year's
affair will exceed any previous one
in affording a good time to the hard
working techmen and the girls they
are having downfor this and . other
social activities of the week-end. They
urge that all engineers secure their
tickets for the dance before Friday -noon.
A guest ticket will be given
with each engineer's ticket, and they
may be secured from R. H. Hayes, R.

or Charlie Waddell. ; - ; r

-The Dialectic Senate meeting
Tuesday night "was featured by heat
ed discussions on the proposition that
the Dialectic Senate go on 'record as
opening its doors for membership to
the women of the Universitv. Al-
though several senators contended
with great vigor that women should
be admitted because' of their superior
knowledge of certain matters of time
ly interest to the senate at large, the
resolution was defeated by a sub
stantial majority. ;
In" defending the resolution Sena
tor. McPherson referred to the extra-,
ordinary progress of the University
during the last six years. He point
ed out that it is rather significant
that women have been admitted to
the University at all times during
these six years. The senator was of
the opinion that co-eds at the Univer
sity at present are not the flapper
type, but the type of womanhood
which is interested in real education.
Senator Dungan called attention to
the fact that the proposition of ad
mitting women to the Dialectic Senate
has been before he senate four times
comparatively recently. The sena
tor commented on the alleged pecu
liar interest which women have in
literary matters. . . '
"During the time that I have been
a member of the Di Senate I have dis

ready.' Each time I favored the plan
of admitting women to membership
in the senate, but now my opinion re

of his discussion of the resolution. He
