GLEE CLUB MEN MAKE PLANS FOR THE SPRING TOUR The recent Hancock School Act, which no one seemed at first to know just how to interpret, played a queer prank on this year's University of North Carolina Summer School. Overnight almost the act caused the most sudden slump in applications and requests for information. And then, when interpreted liberally by Attorney General Brummitt and the Equalization Board, it produced just the opposite effect. The applications and requests for catalogues and information have been coming in so fast the last week that Director N. W. Walker says there is every indication of another record en rollment like the enrollment of 2,657 of last year. Before interpretation, the act had the teachers afraid of a wholesale cut in teaching force, according to Dean Walker. And teachers, staring un employment in the face, are inclined to forget summer training. , After liberal interpretation, ' the teachers saw it to mean not a lessened teaching force but the hardest compe tition there has ever been for teach ing places, with only the teachers with the higher certificates surviving. And now they are making haste to make preparations for the summer training and raise their certification standards. Reservations are already filling many of the dormitories up for the summer, according to Dean Walker, and interest is fully as high as it was this time last year. The Summer School will again be held in two terms, the first beginning June 13 and ending July 23, and the second beginning July 24 and ending August 30. Preliminary announcement of -courses to be offered, instructions, accommodations, and so on was brought out in January in bulletin form, and a more detailed catalogue is to be brought out the last of this month. The University Summer School, established by Dr. Kemp P. Battle, in 1877, is the oldest in the United States. It offers college credit and credit for teacher certification at the same time, and has proved very pop- ular both with teachers seeking sum mer training and "college students desiring to get off extra courses and hasten graduation. Nelson 0. Kennedy of the Musical faculty has been elected organist for the Chapel of the Cross for the com jng year. - HAMILTON TALKS TO ROTARY CLUB Lecturing to the Chapel Hill Rotary Club at its weekly banquet in the ball room of the Carolina Inn on last Wed nesday evening, Dr. J. G. DeRoulhac Hamilton, of the University History department faculty, described Henry Ford as' being one of the greatest historians, in a practical sense, of all time. "'Ford is the man who said, 'History is all bunk,' " began Dr. Hamilton. "Yet he has definitely contributed the greatest thing to American history that it is possible for a man to con tribute. He is now building a museum at Dearborn, an enormous thing which will house his whole collection of re-1 lies which trace the rise of America in detail from the earliest stages of civilization. Everything that can be reproduced is being done so in this museum. The evolution of every kind of modern convenience is demonstrat ed there in this collection. All kinds of household devices, farming imple ments, toys, pipes (although Ford hates tobacco) and weapons of war fare (although Ford is a pacifist) all are represented there. Even old grocery stores, street cars, and rail road cars of the earlier and modern periods are on display there." "Everything is practical there. Most of us think that historical relics are things such as chips of bark from a tree under which Washington stood, or some other tomfoolery," concluded Dr. Hamilton, "but in reality, this col lection that Ford is housing in Dear born is the only thing by which Americans can get a true picture of the progress which they have made through the centuries. Ford as a historian, practically speaking fur nishes us an interesting picture of the man who made it possible for us to ride when we might otherwise have walked." Dr. Hamilton's lecture was a fea ture on one of the series of Rotary Club programs in which students and faculty members are participating, Dr. Eric Abernethy, University phy sician, is president of the group. The Order of the Grail will stage a dance tonight in Bynum Gymna sium.

Neither of these men have ever lost' a debate for Carolina. This will be the first radio debate in the history .of the University. Due to this and the great rivalry exist ing between the two universities this radio fray is expected to attract a great deal of attention both on the campuVand in state-wide circles. The April issue of the High School J ournal, published by the School of Education, has been recently released and distributed to the schools through out the state. This issue contains articles and notes by teachers and students in the high schools and the University. Mildred English, assistant superin tendent of the Raleigh- Public Schools, in tne article "Methods of Kevision and the Revision of a High School Curriculum", discusses the programs of curriculum revision. She describes the plan used in the Raleigh schools and its benefit to the teachers and the students. This plan which has been in operation for six years, was de vised by a committe of eminent edu cators in the East, and consists of a system whereby a check is kept of the records of each student during his years in school and the courses of study are arranged accordingly. "Teaching History by Units", by A. K. King, of the University of North Carolina, enumerates the var ious units in the teaching of history. This article concludes the discussion of the organization of history teach ing which was begun in the March issue of the journal. Henry E. Biggs, of the Greens boro xiigh School, tells ot. the aid which is rendered by chemistry in the prevention and supression of disease. In the article "The Relation of Chemistry to Health and Disease" the winning essay in the North Car olina Academy of Science High School prize for the year 1928, Mr Biggs outlines the means by which chemistry may be used in combating diseases. W. H. Davis, of the University of North Carolina, presents in his ar ticle "Some Attainable Objectives in the Teaching of History", the objec tives which the modern teachers of history should try to attain in teaching history to present-day stu dents. Miss Nora Beust lists the 1927 1928 books which she judges to be of interest for High School students. There are also a number of notes and book reviews in the journal. Will Make Northern and West ern Tours ; Program Not Decided Yet. Galaxy of Gay Girls and oys Brighten Up Campus The University of North Carolina Glee Club will leave on May 1 for the first section of their spring tour, ac cording to an advance announcement rom the Music department yesterday. This section will include in its itin erary four western cities of the state, probably Salisbury, High Point, Charlotte, and Statesville. It will be gone from the campus for four days and return to the Hill for a five day intermission. After that, the glee club will leave for its second section of the tour' and will , visit several middle northern cities, Rich mond, Washington, Baltimore, and perhaps one other. The reason for the division of this tour .into two sections is that one long trip will cause too much time from studies to be lost by the members par ticipating in the tour. It was thought advisable by the officers of the club to divide the tour into two parts and thus afford a short intermission for the members to return to the Univer sity and continue their studies fur ther before attempting a northern tour. The program as yet has not been definitely decided upon, but it was stated that several new songs would be included. About 32 members will make up the personnel of the tour. Professor Paul John Weaver, head of the University Music department, and Professor Nelson O. Kennedy will ac company the club this quarter as di rector and piano accompanist respec tively. Wesley Griswold, student solo ist with the glee club, who was so en thusiastically acclaimed on the club's tripsr last quarter, having withdrawn from musical activities this quarter will not be featured as soloist on the spring tours of the glee club. Rehearsals of the songs to be sung on the tour are being practiced three times a week, and the music depart ment requests that all regular mem bers interested in making the spring tour attend every rehearsal from now on. Manning Returns Dr. I. H. Maninng, dean of the Me dical school, recently returned to Chapel Hill from Watt's Hospital in Durham, where he underwent an operation. He is improving rapidly but has not yet been able to resume his duties. Carolina Wins!

" The state is constitutionally com mitted to promote this latter object through a public system. The Uni versity has been a tremendous factor in the molding of - North Carolina civilization, because by its broadness and liberality, it has vitally touched boys from every section, of all sects, of every station of life. He brought his message concretely home to the seniors. "The future of North Carolina lies in young men.

Railroad Tracks to Be Removed From Area and Paths Made Is at Present an Unsightly Spot. Scores of Visitors Flock to Caro lina During Annual High School Week; Laurels Will Crown Heads of Many Lads and Lassies. (By J. C. Williams) To the student, the professor, the oaf er, the laborer, and all Chapel Hill it is evident that High School Week is well under way. A colorful army of high school folk from every section of the state throng the stately walks of the staid old University campus for this the third day of their so journ in the land of learning. Some sophisticated, blaise, plainly nonchal ant! Others with mouths gaping gaze with boundless admiration at the won ders of higher learning. Already the good work is well under way. J? nday and J? riaay mgnt saw the events completed. All that day the campus was penetrated from every angle by the steady hum of ambitious debaters, each anxious to bring honor and glory to the old folks. The win ner of the coveted Aycock Memorial Cup had not been ascertained at the time that the Tar Heel went to press. AH day Friday sophisticated young freshmen were parading their superior knowledge before the admiring eyes of the home town folks with whom they had been equals a short year back. But higher education does won ders! Friday saw many a high school track artist go down before the strides of a mightier opponent. Friday saw hosts of debaters, who had hitherto considered themselves unbeatable, go down in defeat before opponents of superior skilL Friday saw the defeat of many who had hoped to return to the old home town clad in the laurels of victory. To high school week Friday was the day of fate. ' This morning the University's visitors have begun their exodus back to their homes some gladdened by victory, others saddened by defeat; but all broadened by their pilgrimage to the land of higher learning. Soon they will break the news to the home folks. And to all it is very clear that the seventeenth annual High School Week sponsored by the University of North Carolina is at an end.
