Accepting an invitation issued by

ham, speaker of the North Carolina
House of Representatives, will conduct
a joint meeting of the Di Senate and
he Phi Assembly on April ninth to
discuss the plan of complete reorgani
zation of the University student
government as proposed by Dr. Book
Speaker Graham, a member of the
class of 1912, and now prominent in
political proceedings of the state,
played a leading role in campus af
fairs while at the University, and
continues to hold an interest in them.
Plans for the meeting as advanced
by officers of the Phi arrange for an
introduction of Speaker Graham by
Dr. Booker, after, which he will as
sume the office of temporary speaker
Qf the Assembly and conduct the ses
sion for the remainder of the evening.
Discussion of Dr. Booker's plan will
probably be a heated one, and the .
presence of such an eminent person
should call forth even finer oratory
The suggested plan would revolu
tionize student government on the
campus. The proposal was consider
ed from all angles by Dr. Booker be
fore being made public, and is con
sidered very sound by all who have
studied it at length. It would put in
place of the present council system of
student government a system analo
gous to that of our national govern
ment a legislative branch consisting
of an upper and lower house, an exe
cutive, and a supreme court with
the triple purpose of securing the
wide interest in issues that represen
tative bodies can arouse in their con
stituents, of practicing our students
in the form of government they will
live under and of furnishing for debate
and decision the actual problems that
grow out of student life instead of the
hypothetical questions now proposed
before our societies.
This joint session is one of the few
that have been held in the past
months, and both bodies have stress
ed the fact that the meeting will be
open to the student body and the
public at large, and for those inter
ested both in Speaker Graham's pre
siding and in the vital topic up for
discussion to be present.

The Carolina Playmakers will
make a short three day tour among
North Carolina cities during the
spring recess next week. This tour
was decided upon because of the in
ability of the organization to fill
three very important dates while on
the Southern tour recently.
Professor Hubert Heffner an
nounced at his office yesterday that
the same three plays as were used
on the occasion of both the Southern
and Northern tours would be taken
on this spring recess trip. The plays
used on these occasions were: "Job's
Kinfolks," by Loretto Carroll . Bailey,
and "The Man Who Died at Twelve
O'clock" and "Quare Medicine," both
by Paul . Green.
The casts of the plays that will be
again taken on tour are as follows:
For "Job's Kinfolks" Mrs. Loretto
Carroll Bailey, Miss Neona Sturgeon,
Miss Helen Dortch, Miss Penelope
Alexander, and George Ehrhart.
For "The Man Who Died at Twelve
O'clock" Miss Helen Dortch, Hubert
Heffner, and Howard Bailey.
For "Quare Medicine" Penelope
Alexander, Hubert Heffner, Howard
Bailey, and T. P. Harrison.
The itinerary of the tour includes
the following towns : Meredith, March
20; Smithfield, March 21, where the
Playmakers will be sponsored by the
Smithfield Home Demonstration Club;
Wilmington, March 22, where they
will be managed by the Parent
Teachers' organization, who will use
the profits accruing from the pro
gram for the purpose of enlarging
the school library facilities of the
city; and Williamston, March 23.
