If it is in the district where he lives,
he jumps into his car and speeds to

the situation could easily become like
the old story of the boy and the

off, the "firemen and citizens will
think it is only a false alarm by
another of the students, and will not

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.

tions will also appear on the stage

the University English department

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.

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 vernier ones are undergoing.

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.)
