If it is in the district where he lives, he jumps into his car and speeds to his house to see whether or not it is on fire. If the false alarms continue, the situation could easily become like the old story of the boy and the wolves. When the fire alarm sroes off, the "firemen and citizens will think it is only a false alarm by another of the students, and will not respond quickly, and someone's resi dence or fraternity house will burn will before the firemen arrive. The Monday morning chapel periods This morning at Chapel period D. E. Hudgins, Jr., retiring president of the student body will formally release the reins of government to the care of Eay Farris, incoming president. Hudgins will open the meeting with a short address of farewell in prep aration for his retirement and re moval to Oxford University next year, where he will continue his study of law. There being only one candidate for the presidency of the student body this year, the custom of having the nominees make campaign speeches before the student body assembled in Chapel was dispensed with. Far ris' speech this morning will be the first, therefore, that he has made be fore the student body. He is ex pected to outline the program that his regime will be guided by during the ensuing year. All members of the student coun cil will be introduced to the student body, after which the president of the Y.M.C.AJ will deliver a short ad dress on the subject of the Y's work for next year. The editors of the campus publica tions will also appear on the stage to speak on the subject of their policies. Dr. E. C.

Two round tables, meeting three mornings each week, will be devoted exclusively to a study of rural prob lems. Dr. E. C. Branson, professor of rural social economics at the Uni versity of North Carolina, will con duct the round table on the "country life of the nation" and Dr. Henry W. McLaughlin, county church director of the Presbyterian church in the United States, will lead the round table "on the task of the country church. Birmingham-Southern Debaters to Be in N. C. The debating team of Birmingham Southern College will tour North Carolina, meeting . Davidson, Duke, and North Carolina State University. The team includes Elbert Wallace, I of Sapula, Okla., and Ted Hightower of , Birmingham. The subject for the debates will be: "Resolved: That ex pert jurists, three or five in number should be substituted for the present system of trial by jury." Against Duke and Davidson the Southern de baters will have the affirmative side, and in the remaining debate the negative. Undoubtedly one of the most im portant campus events of the year will be the joint meeting of the Phi lanthropic and Dialectic Societies to night in the Phi Hall for the purpose of discussing the Booker plan of re organization of the undergraduate student government. The significance of tonight's ses sion is suggested by the fact that Speaker Graham of the North Caro lina House of Representatives will preside over the meeting, and will be introduced by Dr. J. M. Booker of the University English department and author of the bill. Other notables of the campus and state are expected to be present, and as a general invi tation has been rendered the student body, a large assemblage is antici pated. Speaker Graham, very prominent in political affairs of North Carolina, is an alumnus of the University, and a member of the class of 1912. While attending college here, he took an ac tive part in campus proceedings, was editor , of the Yackety-Yack and a member of several societies. As his interest in University life is still keen, he has accepted the invitation of the Philanthropic Assembly to conv duct the meeting tonight, and will arrive here sometime during the afternoon. The Booker bill, already the ob ject of much controversy, should pro vide a heated discussion, for the meeting. Although many of the wiser heads about the University have signified their approval of the plan, their opinion is far from unanimous. The proposed change calls for a com plete reorganization of the system of student government; it would make the Phi and Di bodies analogous to the IJnited States Senate and House, with elected members. Dr. Booker also proposes to make the student council similar to the Supreme Court. GRADUATE CLUB TO GIVE DANCE Will Be Given Friday Night, April 14; Wardlaw to Furnish Music. The Graduate Cotillion Club, com posed of graduate students and mem bers of the departments, will stage . its second dance Friday night, April 12th. The dance will be held in the living rooms and halls of Smith build ing, which will be decorated appro priate to the occasion. J ack Wardlaw's Orchestra has been engaged to play for the occasion, which officials of the club expect to be attended by a large number of local and out-of-town girls. The dance will be informal. This is the second dance to be stag ed by the club, which was organized during the winter quarter. Plans are under way for another dance to be held sometime later in the spring. R. W. Linker is secretary of the club and Charles Albert Moore is treasurer. throughout the country, and they In the midst of initiation the young Greeks are realizing that the "dear ole fraternity" is not all roses as it was painted during the halycon rush ing days back in September. Hard -blows with stiff paddles are being handed out by the "brothers" to the neophytes who are undergoing the hard transitional period from pledge dom to full membership. There s many a twist and turn from pledging to initiation and many a hard blow on the steep and narrow way. The campus was aware of initiation yesterday as various young students yelled in a high pitched voices the minutes and seconds of the hours. Various others were seen trudging around in all manner of peculiar cos tumes. Screams and yells coming from fraternity court, fraternity row, and the lane from the early part of the nteht until the sky grows red with morning tell of the harsh treatment the vernier ones are undergoing.

All reporters who expect to continue to work must attend this meeting. the quartet: "My Lord What a Morning." "Zion Weep Low." "Ezekiel Saw de Wheel." "Roll, Jordan, Roll." "Done Got My Sword in My Hand." "Study War No More." "My Way's Cloudy." "Wade in de Water." "Hard Trails." "Inchin' Along." "Joshua Fit de Battle." "Witness." These , and many others will be sung by the quartet. The sentiment attached to these old songs makes them very popular, but in a distinc tive way. The opportunity to hear a program of this kind does not come very often at the University, and a full house is assured Thursday night. Report Issued on Expenditures of Student Government for Year At the annual campus elections in April, .928, the student body voted by a large majority to impose a stu dent government fee of 20c per year upon every student registered in the University. In the case of students affiliated with classes, this was to come from their class fee, and wouid, therefore, be no additional burden. For some years prior to this time student government had been main tained largely by contributions from the regular budget of the Univer sity. The students actively sponsor ing the movement which resulted in the above fee were of the opinion that this was an improper method for financing the necessary activities of student government. They felt that in view of the fact that student gov ernment was an institution inde pendent from the regular administra tion f the University, it should be a self-supporting institution So much for the history of the fee.. Since this is the first year that this fee has been available, and since we feel that any student organization spending student money should pub licly and regularly account for such expenditure, those of us actively con nected with the administration of stu dent government during the r past year wish to make the following fi nancial report: Expenditures of Student Government $101.00 (To retire two notes given to finance the first two months of the student government year. This ex penditure was necessary in view of the fact that the present student of ficers are the first serving under the new plan oi installing campus oin cers immediately after the annual elections instead of waiting until the following September. With the in stallation occurring in early Spring and the student government fund not being paid up until the following Fall, it was necessary to secure an advancement by means of notes.) $44.90 (All elections expenses, in cluding Cheer Leader election, En Continued on page four) .
