fighters. ' Besides these there ! are
Charles A. 'Lindbergh, America's
eagle, , Charles Chaplin, comedian;

tionally famous as author, educator,
and scholar of diversified attainments;
Professor of mathematics at the Uni
versity of North Carolina, and a lead
ing figure in the intellectual group
that centers around that institution."

To the Student Body of the -University
of North Carolina: ;
As your selection for the editor
ship of the Tar Heel, I offer you an
apology. I am a member, of Sigma
Upsilon literary fraternity and was
connected with the Yellow Journal;
I have offended the students and the
faculty of the University in certain7
respects, and I accept full responsi
bility. ' ' " j
The Yellow Journal was assembled
hastily and without consideration of
the import of several articles, which
should never have been published un
der any conditions, even in a Yellow
Journal; For that matter, the Jour
nal should never have been issued. I
am heartily ashamed of my connec
tion with it.

offer them an apology for my con- j

, I am aware that my connection with !

proved myself an extremely poor Chief Alumni Marshall Cox An-

Debate Council,-announces that there
will be a meeting of that organization
tomorrow night in 210 Murphey at
7:30. v;- .' ' -
Owing to the fact that several mat
ters of policy are to be discussed, it
is essential that the entire council
be present. , ;;
The following issues are to be set
tled:' 1. On what basis shall the gold
monogram be granted in the future?
2: What relation shall Freshman-j
J debating bear to varsity debating?
3. The nature and extent of next
year s ae Dating scneauie.
In consideration of the fact that the
present requirements for the gold
monogram are obviously too easy, the
president asks that each member of
the council bring a written statement
of his plan as to the granting 6f the
monogram. The main problem in
volved is: Shall the power to grant
the monogram be lodged in the coun
cil, or shall it be- granted, according
to some set rule?

Dialectic Senate, urges that all mem
bers of the senate be present at the

Council met Sunday night and began
action against both active members
and initiates of the group. . '

by the Student , Council last
year that the publication was not ,
wanted oil the University campus, and
Sigma Upsilon accepted the warning. .
In view of the flagrant violation this
year of last year's warning, it is be
lieved that drastic action may be
taken against the parties responsible.
- The Executive Committee of the
faculty in a meeting Sunday censured
the publication and recommended to
the. faculty committee on fraternities
that Sigma Upsilon as a group be dis
bahded on the University campus.
In connection with the action of the
Council, President Ray S". Farris ap
peared in chapel yesterday morning
to explain to students that just action
had been taken against the ' parties
responsible and that ,af ter a complete
review of the circumstances the case .
of each student . concerned -would be V
