Ronny Johansson Pleases in
Last Entertainment Program
Gives Varied and Colorful
Dances before Large Audience
in Memorial Hall.
Miss Ronny Johansson received an
enthusiastic reception in her dance
recital last night in Memorial Hall.
A large audience was present and
greeted, the famous Swedish artist
with great applause.
The lighting effects and costumes
were pleasing and colorful. The
dances were varied and ranged from
the fast, lyrical ones to the slower
more steady waltzes. In all, the ar
tist was sure and adept. She seemed
worthy of the many favorable press
comments that she had received be-;
fore coming here.
Miss Johansson with her pianist
Pauline Lawrence arrived in Chapel
Hill yesterday morning from New
York. She was met -in Durham by
Walter Spearman and Mac Gray.
Prof. Koch assisted in showing her
the Playmaker -theater and other
points of interest around the campus.
Last night after the performance she
left immediately for New York. She
will sail tomorrow for Europe.
The recital last night brought to a
close the first year of the entertain
ment program. The students have
been furnished with a well balanced
program that has ranged from a
concert by Paul Whiteman's Jazz or
chestra to a concert by the Flonzaley
quartet. Several lecturers of note
have appeared also. .

Chapel Hill's City Manager v de
clared war on unmuzzled canines a
few days past. Little dogs went
scurrying around loaded down with
muzzles almost as big as themselves.
There was still a chance, though,
that a beloved canine might by some
hook or crook appear publicly with
out the proper muzzling, .
"Sinner" Venable, prize possession
of Dr. Francis P. Venable, former
president of the University, (Chapel
Hill has a custom of giving dogs the
last names of their masters), was the
first to get the formal introduction
to the police, lest unmuzzled appear
ance might lead to hasty execution
without the master's being informed.
And now all the dog-owners are
hastening to introduce their prized
pets. "Spot" Chase, pride of the Uni
versity president, and "Jerry" Law
rence, of Rector A. S. Lawrences
household, have been the latest.
Frederick H. Koch, director of the
roiino Piawnakers. was asked if
vaivuuM " ' '
he wasn't going to introduce his be
loved "Dixie", well-known mascot of
the Playmakers; but Professor Koch
with an air of grandeur insisted that
"Dixie" was well enough known al
ready. ' - '
' The police are co-operating, in
forming owners of unmuzzled cap
tures wherever owners are known; and
these formal introductions promise to
save Chapel Hill's canine aristocracy.

Mr. House spoke as the third of
the series of - faculty members who
are making short talks, in chapel on
the general theme of "Understanding

tory." The speaker raised the question of
whether the American .People now
believe in democracy as much as
they once did. "There is a certain
class that will state that there are
entirely too many men in the colleges
and universities," said Mr. House.
"During the pioneer period the people
had the ideal of a democracy which
would realize the value of the indi
vidual and provide for. the govern
ment of everyone. As our country
becomes more like Europe the ques
tion of whether the people will con
tinue to believe in democracy or not

"For 300 years there was a joyous
exploitation of the natural resources
of the country, but about 1890 the
frontier disappeared, all the land was
taken, and the custom of moving fur

pleased with his neighbors passed
away. , l Then came the period of in

social problem in the conditions of
both the employer and the employee.
The employer is bound by a set of
conditions that he cannot change and
the employee is in a position where it
is impossible for him to help himself
and where it 'is difficult for others
to help him.'.'

In considering the modern news
paper, Mr. House said that he reads
a great deal, but that he is unable
to separate the good from the bad.
However, he stated that he puts in
one classification which he calls pros
perity ballyhoo. "There is a vast
amount of publicity now on the era
of so-called prosperity, but we should
make some inquiry before we accept
the conclusions of those writing this

21". At this meeting the following of

the Fall Quarter of next year: presi

and critic. By virtue
of the fact that the office of treasurer
is a yearly office Patterson will serve
in that capacity all of next year.
The Senate launched forth into a
discussion of "Resolved, That the
president of the Dialectic Senate be
chosen from classes higher in rank

revision of the constitution. Senators
Brown and Gilreath favored the reso-

action demanding the withdrawal of

was taken which passed the first phase
of the resolution by an overwhelming

The Phi Assembly met at its regu

discussed the proposition: Resolved:
That the Phi Assembly go on record
as favoring the complete censorship
and suppression of the Yellow Jour
nal. A wide range of arguments were
presented on both sides; ranging all
the way from the statement that the
last issue of the Yellow Journal was
the most vile, diabolical, and indecent
bit of slander that has ever been per
petuated on the honest and worthy
citizens of Chapel Hill to the argu

would be a suppression to the free

Representative Lang declared the
Yellow Journal has by a gradual pro

He strongly upheld the action of the
student council. j
Representative Speight cited that
the Yellow Journal will cause the stu
dents to hold the faculty in contempt.
Representative Carr agreed with
the previous speaker that the last is
sue should be suppressed but stated
that that was no valid reason why the
Journal should be suppressed. He
pointed out the, good it had done on

Representative Hobgood favored
non-suppression of the Journal. He
advocated its encouragement. ' He

Brockman Will Talk
At Y Conference
Mr. Fletcher S, Brockman will be
one of the prominent speakers at the
Blue Ridge Student Conference, June
14-24. As a world figure he brings
an unusually wide outlook and keen
understanding of international pro
blems. Mr. Brockman became a stu
dent secretary for the Southern Re
gion for the International Committee
of the Y. M. C. A. in 1891, and quickly
rose to a place of leadership in that
rapidly growing work. In 1908, he
went to Nanking as one of the early
group who planted the Y. M. C. A. in
China. His seventeen years spent in
the secretaryship in China truly pre
sent an epoch both in the life of that
ancient nation and of the missionary
program of the Y. M. C, A.
Other Carolina students who have
planned to attend the conference since
the last report are: Ray S. Farris,
president of the student body, John
W. Clinard, Jr., James' A. Hudson,
John E. Miller, and T. E. Marshall, Jr.
Connolly, Lynch, Humphries,
and Miller Compose Fresh
man Y Quartet.
Among the many groups of enter
tainers from the student body of the
University of North Carolina that
have attracted state-wide attention
and approval through their appear
ance in many of the cities of this
state, probably there are none that
have been more active in the actual
spreading of good will than the pres
ent ' Freshman Friendship Council
Quartet, conducted under the auspices
of the University Y. M. C. A.
This quartet is composed of Jack
Connolly, first tenor from Taylors
ville, Steve Lynch, lead from Ashe
ville, Wofford Humphries, baritone
from Asheville, and John Miller, bass
from Winston-Salem. These four,
versatile musicians and entertainers
that they are, have appeared over
station WPTF and other stations
several times during the past year and
at each performance have been the
recipient of scores of applause cards
praising them for their programs and
urging that certain numbers be repeated.

The theft of the coue"belonging
to Mr.. William Way, of Charleston,
University senior, has been solved
and the perpetrator of the crime
placed under arrest. The robbery
was the work of a freshman who had
been dropped at the end of the
winter quarter, and who states that
he was using, the car in an effort to
find a job in nearby towns.
Mr. Way left his Chevrolet coupe
parked near Saunders Hall for a few
minutes, and . when he returned the '
car was gone. Efforts to locate the
car were made, but no trace of it was
found until several days later when it
was found by a University policeman
near one of the dormitories. Mr.
Way was notified of the discovery
and the car was placed under watch.
Unknown to each other, Univer
sity student policemen and Mr. Way
and his roommate were concealed in
the surrounding bushes at the same
time. About twilight a person was
seen to approach the car and enter it.
The policemen and Mr. Way leaped
forward, pistols in hand, each be
lieving the other to be accomplices in
the robbery, and covered the automo
bile. They made themselves known
to each other, and together took the
prisoner to police headquarters.
The prisoner was given a hearing
before Mayor Council and was bound
over to court. His father arranged
