the interf rater nity council, was
then introduced by Dean Brad
shaw. Bulluck took a few minutes to
explain in detail the rules of the
rushing seasons this year. He
especially emphasized the desir
ability of each man doing all
that he could to help enforce the
rules. He continued by telling
that rushing is being done this
year according to a hew plan,
and will naturally require the
earnest cooperation of each indi
vidual in insuring the success of
the plafns. He also asked that
each man upon receiving an in
vitation to visit a particular fra
ternity, house regard that as a
duty and make a special effort
to comply with the offer of the
invitation. The failure to do so
automatically, bars the offender
from ever becoming a member

youthful good spirits are -
ly different from intoxic .. a.
The town will be filled with v
eral thousand out of town
peop! - the roHrr af Chapel
Hill will have their hands full
restraining these people."
Chief Lloyd also said that the

Says German
More Than Heels
Gives Information about Ger

During Conversation Tues
day; Air Traveling Popular
On Continent.
Students at the University of
North Carolina who think they
are overburdened with work
and whose professors require
much more scholastic activity
than is necessary should certain
ly thank their lucky stars that "
they are not attending a Ger
man university.
Such was the impression giv
en by Dr. Otto Stuhlman, Jr., in
the course of a rambling conver
sation Tuesday in which he made
many interesting remarks about
conditions in Germany, France,
Belgium and England, as he ob
served them during the past
Probably one of the most curi
ous things that Dr. Stuhlman
described was his' asking, for
Dutch cheese while in Holland.
He called for the cheese by
name, and when the waiter
shook his head and said that he
had never heard of it, the pro
fessor from North Carolina
showed the shape of the article
to be round by a movement -of
his hands and then told the wait
er that the article he wanted
was red. The waiter suddenly
caught the meaning. The most
astounding part came when the
waiter replied that the common
red spherical cheese which comes
ffrom Holland is made only for
export and it not used at all in
the country where it is made.
v "Flying , is quite common,"
saloT DrT Stuhlman. "The price
offare by air is roughly twice
that of a first-class ticket by rail

regularity of railroad trains,
