In making plans for next year's
"Student Entertainment Committee
Program, Dean Hibbard, head of the
Committee, has asked that the stu
dents and townspeople express their
opinion on possible 1 attractions that
can be secured, so that an intelligent
-estimate can be made as to what the
students really want.
"The Committee can make no
promises to engage the attractions
.receiving the majority of votes," said
Dean Hibbard," "but it will be defin
itely guided by such recommenda
tions." "The question of balancing the pro-
rgram among musical, dramatic, and
lecture attractions and again bal
.ancing the program for each quarter
presents difficulties of a varied na
ture. However, the Committee does
sincerely ask the recommendations of
interested subscribers to the Enter
tainment Program."
The Entertainment Committee re
quests interested people to check the
following list of possible attractions
-and send' them in to Mr. Hibbard by
April 15: -Drama

Will Be Thrashed Out in Joint
Meeting of Di and Phi With
Speaker Graham of State
Legislature Presiding.
Tuesday night the Dialectic Sen
ate and the Philanthropic Assembly
will meet in joint session to discuss
the plan offered by J. M. Booker for
reorganizing student government at
the ' University of North Carolina.
The meeting will be hehjl in the Phi
Hall beginning at approximately 7:30
with Speaker' Graham, of the North
Carolina legislature, presiding.
The purpose of this article is to
explain the accompanying resolutions
without expressing any opinions on
the subject of the plan." Due to the
fact that the new proposal has been
a topic of great discussion on the
campus for several weeks Dr. Booker
suggests that it would be wise to clip
the accompanying resolutions out of
this paper and bring them to the
meeting. This suggestion is calcu
lated to eliminate much needless dis
cussion of mere technicalities.
It will be noticed that the original
proposal has been thrown into two
proposals framed as two separate
resolutions the -first, that a bi-cameral
system of government supplant
the present council system; and the
Rppnnd. that the Dialectic Senate and
the two chambers of the proposed bi
camerar system.
For the purpose of a quick joining
of the issues and a consequent speed
ing up of the debate the preambles
of the resolutions, which contain the
arguments in brief, have been cast in
the form of inverted syllogisms with
the points of attack exposed. Thus
the premises of the first "Whereas,"
the conclusion of the first syllogism,
i it in
are indicated oy tne Decause
clauses. These clauses, of course,
should focus the attack if the pre
siding officer of the evening keeps
the debaters on the issues offered and
postpones all new issues until the old
ones are disposed of.

business. The speaker maintained
that in many cases the amount of
money spent in advertising an article
is much greater, than the actual cost
of manufacturing that article. He
also contended that unusually large
expenditures for manufacturing are
usually made at the expense of the
quality of the goods advertised. Pro

only mediocre quality.
'This question of national adver
tising is so closely bound up with the
process of acquiring a living in many
cases that its harmful aspects are
often overlooked," declared the speak
-er. None the less, he contended -that
there is some very strong evidence
to the effect that national advertis
ing is both socially and economically
harmful. Professor Garfield was of
the opinion that the harmful aspects
of national advertising are more evi
dent, however, in the social world than
in the economic world.

to be held throughout the State Fri
day night, April 5.
Of the slightly more than 200
schools entered, 189 have reported
their representatives' names. These
show 398 girls and 358 boys, it was
revealed today by E. R. Rankin, in
charge of high school relations for
the University Extension Division,
which sponsors the contest jointly
with the-Di and Phi Literary Socie
ties of the University.
Twenty-one schools, it is interesting
to note, - will be represented by
teams composed wholly of girls.
Fifteen schools will be representated
wholly-by boys.- The other teams will
be mixed.
The teams will debate throughout
the State on Friday night in triangles
and pairs, and teams winning both
affirmative and negative debates
will meet in the finals here at the
University April 18 and 19 for the
Aycock Memorial Cup and the State
championship.
The subject of this year's debate is
the World Court, and to timeliness of
of subject is attributed much of the
increase in participation and interest
in the contest this year. A total of
195 schools took part in the contest
last year.
Several Appointments
In Chem Department
Eleven assistant professors and
three teaching fellows have been ap
pointed and placed on the faculty list
of the Chemistry department for next
year, according to Dr. J. M. . Bell,
head of the Chemistry department.
Out of about fifty applicants the
following men were chosen as assis
tant professors: W. J. Mattox, D. R.
Ergle, H. A. Ljung, S. M. Martin,
J. B. Gallant, R. F. Abernethy. J. G.
Augenstein, A. B. Couch, E. S. Gil
reath, A. E. Hughes and T. L. King.
W. W. Williams, D. W. Weaver, and
Haywood Parker, Jr., were appointed
as teaching fellows.
Disproving that they were uninter
ested in campus elections, the student
body went to the polls Thursday
from nine to six o'clock and piled up
1251 votes, the third largest that has
ever been cast in a campus election,
and this despite the fact that instead
of the usual thirty offices only nine
remained to be voted upon because of
a scarcity of candidates for the other
21 offices.
Ed. Hamer, one of two candidates
for the position of treasurer of the
Y. M. C. A. led the ballot with 882
votes the highest number obtained
by any candidate during the course
of the election. He was opposed by
Wade Gholston who secured 163
votes.
Red Green was victorious over
Bob Zealy opponent for the presi
dency of the senior class by a vote
of 152 to 110.
The most spirited competition for
the offices was in the selection of
three men to compose the member
ship of the Publications Union Board
for next year. Five men ran for of
fice resulting in the choice of Clyde
Dunn, " of Kinston who secured 690
votes; J. E. Dungan of Chapel Hill,
who came second with fifteen less, or
675 votes and B. Moore Parker who
ran third with a vote of 641. Harry
Galland with five votes less than his
nearest competitor came fourth,
while Joe Jones the other candidate
cornered 467 votes.
Another point of contention was
the election of an editor for the Yaek
ety Yack. Travis Brown, however
showed enough strength to win a ma
jority of the total votes cast on the
first ballot, he count was as follows:
Brown 599; Linwood Harrell 320;
and Bob Hovis 210.
The Debate Council composed of
two men elected from the student
body at large will be made up of
Mayne Albright and Bill Speight.
The vote on this office was; Mayne
Albright 718; Bill Speight 650; and
John Wilkinson 470.
Jimmie Williams ran away from
John Lang, his opponent for the pres
idency of the Y. M. C. A. to the tune
of 802 votes to 420.
One week earlier Ed Hudgins, re
tiring president of the student body
and chairman of the elections com
mittee, announced the automatic se
lecion of a list of twenty-one officers
because of the fact that all candidates
for the offices except those automati
cally chosen refrained from running.
They are as follows.

remainder of the yeajr.
In a hotly contested election George
McDaniel defeated Skinny Wallace
for the position of representative on
the Student Council from the Law
school. ,
John Lewis proposed a new plan
for the election of the officers of the
association. In the past it has been
the custom, for the officers of the
third year class to also act as the of
ficers of the association, thus leav
ing it in the hands of the third year
men to elect all the officers of the as
sociation except the Student Council
representative. Under the plan pro
posed by Lewis and adopted by the as
sociation all of the officers will be
elected by the entire student body of
the Law school. The president is to
be a member of the third year class
and the secretary-treasurer a mem
ber of the second year class. Vice-
president and Student Council repre
sentative may be from any of the
three classes, but it has long been the
policy that the Student Councilman
shall be a member of the third year
class.
Waddell Gholson defeated Odell
Sapp for the presidency of the asso
ciation; Charlie Rouse defeated June
Crumpler for the office of Vice-presi
dent; and A. T. Ward defeated L. G.
Giles for secretary-treasurer. ; The
count was close in the vote for all of
the offices. These men will go into
office at the beginning of the next
school year. .,
Last night the sophomore class held
its annual dance in Bynum Gymna
sium form nine until one. This dance
opened the social season for the
spring quarter. The Grail will give
the first of its four dances tonight.
Following the Grail affair dances will
follow in close order every week-end.
The figure at the sophomore affah;
was led by Bill Carbine assisted by
Pete Wyrick, president of the class,
and Jimmie Hudson, president of the
rising junior class. Others in the.
figure included the dance committee,
composed of Will Yarborough as
chairman, Malcolm v Seawell, and
Evan Vaughn, all officers of the class,
all former -officers of the class, and
all officers elected for the coming
year. The gym was decorated with
class colors mingled 1 with Carolina
colors. Shortly after intermission a
no-break dance was held for off icers
and the incoming officers of the class.
Confetti was showered on the ancerf "
and paper hats were distributed fol
lowing the figure.
Jack Wardlaw's Orchestra furnish
ed music for the occasion, rendering
several select numbers during the
course of the dance.
- Members of the faculty and their
wives were chaperones for the occasion.
