In this case, the student body can
not be helped by the imposition of an

increase the charges, I think the
faculty and Board of Trustees would
do well to consider ways and means
of emulating the system of our
neighbor, the University of Virginia,
where charges for tuition to state
students have long since been abolished.
Choosing the institution to attend
is , a matter that costs the average
student about to launch his collegiate
career considerable worry and time.
One considers the advantages the va

congeniality of the student body, the
quality of instruction, the degree of

Editor o fthe Tar Heel:
Behold Folks! The Don Juan of
Co-Ed fame has come back to us. He
left this story in my office during
early December 1928 when he . was
called to Keely Institute to have his
face lifted. I am sending this in to

challange Don's position with the Co-
Eds, but because I feel it my duty to
the Junior class. Here 'tis:

The Senior Ball given last year is
still remembered by those who at
tended it as one of the best dances
given during the year.
The committee in charge of giving
the dance this year met' in the early
part of the week and after considering
all available dates decided to recom
mend to the executive committee of
the class that the date of the Senior
Dance this year be set at April 19,
two weeks from yesterday.
The date for the class smoker was
set last quarter for April. 17 in order
to obtain Dr. Chase as a speaker.
The dance committee thought that it
would be foolish to call a class meet
ing to consider just the one problem
of a suitable date for the dance.
Feeling that the executive commit
tee of the class was a representative
body we submitted the date to them
and that committee accepted it al
This being done, the next step is
for " we Seniors to assure ourselves
of a good dance. The committee begs
the Seniors to talk the dance up and
to be sure to write their best girl

sider that friendships and acquaint
ances are not to be made as readily
and widely at a university as at
small college. In act, one will meet
considerably more students at an in
stitution with a fairly large student
body than at a smaller place, and
the increased number of acquaintances
gives one an opportunity to choose
with more care his friends.
At a university a student comes
daily into contact with leaders in the
various fields of knowledge. Further,
national and international figures in
politics, letters, the arts, and the
other fields are frequent visitors to
the large institutions which enjoy a
wide reputation for leadership.
Students at the University of North
Carolina benefit greatly from asso
ciation with men of established posi
tions in the fields of law, medicine,
the sciences, and letters. Visitors of
note are continually coming to the
campus to speak, to attend confer
ences, or to do special research work.
As for friends, so democratic is the
student body of the University, that
noted educators are forever comment
ing on the spirit of fellowship that
prevails on the Carolina campus.

To the Editor of the Tar Heel: "
I wish to call attention to the pro
posed plan before the faculty to im
pose extra fees for courses taken
above the regular three per quarter.
I cannot see the merits of such a
scheme. It seems to me that the only
important object attained will be to
penalize honest effort. The average
student who registers for four courses
does so because of a desire to do
little more than he is required to do
Maybe there is some exceptional
course lor which he win get ; no
credit, but which he is very desirous
of taking neverthless. This he may
do by registering for four courses in
stead of three. Should ambition of
this type be taxed? I think not.
It may be argued that many stu
dents take extra courses some quart
ers to make up deficient work. Well
What of it? If a student is honest and
conscientious and I hope most of us
are in his -desire to graduate with
his class, why should he be charged
more than his classmates for the same
work they are doing? Then, too, such
deficiencies often arise because of in
tervention of faculty members them
selves. i?or example, almost every
freshman entering college has taken
two courses in some modern foreign
language in high school. When he
comes to register in Memorial Hall
however, the ogre behind the language

he already has credit. As a resul

Garbed in a bedraggled suit of
fringed buckskins, his feet clad in
leather moccasins, Gary Cooper, an
erstwhile man, of the mountains, was
"married" recently to Lupe Velez, ex
otic daughter of Old Mexico, in the
reconstructed chapel Bent's Fort, a
famous trading post of the old Southwest.
The simple ceremony was witnes
sed by a motley crowd of trappers,
Indians, pioneer traders, and Mexi
cans; and as the beholders stared
intently while Guy Oliver, veteran of
hundreds of moving picture roles,
read the ritual, a battery of cameras
clicked steadily, for it was all a part
of the Paramount pioneer days' ro
mance, "Wolf Song," which is coming
to the Carolina Theatre for a day's
run, on Monday of next week.
Prominent among the witnesses of
the "wedding" were Louis Wolheim
and Constantine Romanoff who play
the roles of trapper comrades of the
tall and handsome Gary.
Totally lacking in the extravagant
splendor which characterizes many
other screen weddings, the Cooper
Velez "ceremony", is nevertheless more
than amply replete with the vigorous
color and rugged interest of a period
in American history which lends it
self readily to the directorial talents
of Victor Fleming. Under his intel
ligent handling of this story from the
pen of Harvey Fergusson, the rude
but romantic lives of the hearty men
who fought Indians and wooed willing
senoritas with equal enthusiasm the
lives of "he-men," are brought into
living reality for the fullest value that
their rugged beauty can give, in
"Wolf Song." -
