Object Is To Assist And Direct
Students Traveling in France;
Service Is Given Free Of
Charge. .
Dr. James Bell Bullit, prof es
sor of pathology at the Univer
sity, received early this month
a communication from France
which contains information of
interest to the students, and es
pecially to those who intend to
travel or study in France.
The letter, sent "by Mrs. Theo
dore Hough, a sister-in-law of
the late Dr. Whitehead, who was
for many. years dean of the medi
cal school here, contained an
announcement of the opening of
the club and clinic, "La Camara
derie Francaise," as 16, Rue
Boissonade, Paris. "As stated
upon the formal announcement
card, the aims of, the club are to
give information upon courses,
studies, researches and to give
advice, all gratuitous upon medi
cal and other personal matters.
But there is much more to the
organization than appears on
the formal statement. Dr. Hah
otte, a French physician of some
note, and greatly . interested in
young people conceived the idea
of establishing a free clinic for
foreign students in Paris. He
'also .realized 'that homesickness
and financial' worries and other
difficulties cause as much unhap
piness as ill-health. With this
in mind, he advocated, in addi
tion to the clinic, a club room
. where students would be able iTo
gather and meet others and over
come the various difficulties that
surround them. Other physi
cians were interested in the
project and the result is "La
Camaraderie Francaise." Mrs.
Hough, who went to Paris after
the death of her husband, who
was dean of the medical school
at the University of Virginia,
became interested in students in
Paris, many of whom were lone
some, discontented and sick,
and without any one to whom
they could turn for advice.
She helped many forlorn boys
and fHrls. sometimes nursing
them through periods of sick
ness. With the establishment of the
"La Camaraderie Francaise,"
Mrs. Hough served, and is serv
ing, as a district nurse for stu
dents of all nationalities in
Paris. Dr. Hanotte and other
physicians in various specialties
dve their services whenever f e
quired. Neither Mrs. Hough nor
the doctors receive any compen
sation for their work. Never
theless there are expenses m
maintaining the clinic and club,
and sometimes in even lending
financial assistance to impover
ished students. ' These necessary
expenses are
met by Mrs. Hough
the French doctors, and many
others who have heard of this
splendid service, among them the
Massachusetts Institute of lech
nology. And it is the fond hope
of Mrs. Hough someday to see

Regular chapel, exercises for
the freshmen and; sophomores
will be resumed next week. Be
cause of -repairs on Memorial
hall, chapel will be held in Ger
rard hall. As late as 13 years
ago Gerrard was used for chap
el exercises, the freshman class
being seated in the center block
downstairs, the sophomore class
in the two side blocks, the junior
class upstairs on the north side
and the senior class upstairs on
the south side. At present, how
ever, .Gerrard will not seat the
entire freshman class. In order
to meet this situation half the
freshmen will attend two days a
week, the other half two days a
week, and the sophomore class
one day a week. This arrange
ment will beV continued until
Memorial hali is reopened for
general use.
Assignment to seats in Ger
rard hall will be made during
this week. The first chapel ex
ercises under the new plans will
probably be held next Tuesday,
November 5. Certain rearrange
ments in seating in Gerrard hall
will be made :in the meantime

Engineers To Form
Mecham Society
A;meeting for the organiza
tion of a group of mechanical
engineering students which will
later petition the American So
ciety of Mechanical Engineers
for a student branch of the or
ganization will be held tonight
at 7:15 in Phillips hall.
The organization which is to
be begun tonight will take the
form of a mechanical engineer
ing society which will conduct
meetings during the remainder
of the year. Next-fall or pos
sibly next spring the society will
petition the national society for
a chapter.
The American Society of Me
chanical Engineers in the na
tional organization of mechani
cal engineers, and the local stu
dent branch, if secured, will have
the same relation to the nation
al organization as the two stu
dent branches of the civil and
electrical engineering societies
have to their national organizations'.

Dr. Louis R. Wilson, Univer

The action of the undergrad
uate faculty on October 25
changes the absence report sys
tem from a daily to a weekly
basis. The registrar's office ex
plains that this does not mean a
separate, report for each day of
the week, but one report for
each section'1 of each class for a
five-day period. It is further
suggested that such a report
would read : John Doe, 10-23, 24,
25, were he absent from, say,
French 4, sectiqn 2, these three
dayiof . the week October 20-25.
Members of the undergraduate
faculty will note that no change
has been made-in the form of
the absence report blanks. Ob
servation and trial prove the
practicability of the present
blank, and, too, ten thousand
such forms have recently been
made. These have to be used
before others are printed.
The registrar's office recom
mends - that reports, for each
week be prepared after the last
class on the final class day of
each week, which is usually Fri
day, and sent directly to the reg
istrar's office by ihter-office
mail. Such reports should not
be placed in the boxes scattered
about in the various classroom
buildings because they will no
longer be collected by special
The regulation as passed by
the undergraduate faculty pro
vides for the new system's being
used immediately. The week of
October 28 to November 2 will,
therefore, be the first during
which this scheme is operative.
Please note that this faculty
action does not in any way
change the former regulation re
garding special notices to a stu
dent's dean when that student
has been absent five, eight, and
ten times. The undergraduate
deans are able to cooperate with
the teaching staff effectively only
when these special reports are
made promptly.
John Lynch, a graduate of the
University and now junior engi
neer of tunnel construction of
the city of New York, will speak

will deal with this topic.
Mr. Lynch graduated from the
University in 1928, taking a de
gree of B. S. m civil engineer
ing. Immediately after' gradu
ation he became connected with
the engineering work in New
York and has remained there.
He is visiting Raleigh on a vaca-

The average age of the first-
year students registered in the
various undergraduate" schools
and the. college of liberal arts
at the University for the fall
quarter, 1929-30, is 18 years,
9 months and 14 days. Edward
Brenner, chemical engineering
student and son of Nathan Bren
ner of Hendersonville, is the
"baby" of the class of 1933, ac
cording to dates of birth as giv
en hV the students. He is 14
years old. Seven hundred forty
two students fall under the first-
year classification.
Geographically, the first-year
group comes from. 88, of the
counties of North Carolina, from
18 states other than North Caro
ina, and from China, the Cana
Zone, and the District of Colum
bia. ' . - . V l
Guilford, county leads the
North Carolina delegation with
a total of 337. Mecklenburg fol
lows with 32 and Forsyth is a
close third with 29. Buncombe
and Wake each have 22 first-
year men, and Gaston has 20.
New.Hanover with 18, Johnston
with 16, Orange and Union with
15; each, and Alamance" and
Rowan with 14 each are other
leaders. Counties with ten or
more, exclusive of those already
named, are -Beaufort, - Durham,
Halifax, Harnett, Iredell, Moore,
Nnsh. Pitt. Rockingham, Land
New York state leads the out-
of-state representation with a
total of 36. Virginia, displaces
South Carolina, which latter
state has of late years followed
closely behind New York in num
bers registered. The Old Domin
ion has 17 first-year students,
while the Palmetto state has 15.
Other states represented are
Massachusetts, Georgia, Penn
sylvania, Mississippi, Maryland,
Connecticut, California, Ohio,
' ' ' M. 1 t
Illinois, Tennessee, AiaDama,
Florida, West Virginia and Tex
as. The District of Columbia,
China, and the Canal Zone also
have students enrolled.
One hundred seventy-six of
the first-year men carry the
mark . of paternal pride in their
names, " this number bearing
"Jr." after their names. Five
others complete their signatures
With the Roman "HI," while
one youngster displays unpar
donable satisfaction with pre
ceding generations in his family
by the use of the rare "IV" after
his name.
In all departments, schools,
and the college in the University
the total registration for all
classes for the fall quarter, ac
cording to figures believed to be
accurate, is 2,624. This number
is considerably in excess of last
year's fall- registration, but is
fewer - by - seven than, the peak
registration in 1927.
