CHASE ADDRESSES
FRESHMAN CL ASS
Enjoins Men of '33 To Complete
Education At Any
Cost.
After an introduction by Dean
Bradshaw. praising him for his
twenty years of faithful and ef
ficient service to the University,
President Chase in his last mes
sage to the freshman class is
sued a challenge to them not to
let' financial difficulties deprive
them of-a college education.
The speaker called attention
to the fact that a college educa
tion" is becoming a normal ex
perience and that over one mil
lion persons are attending col
leges in the United States, mak
ing more than one percent of
the entire population. He fur
ther said that prior to the Civil
War and ; for some time -"after,
that a college education belonged
only to the wealthy and privi
leged and that there are more
men in college now than there
were in high school then.
College Trains for Life '
Dr. Chase further stated that
he regarded figures on tne in
crease nT financial returns for
college men of very little value
because financial gains were not
the big object in obtaining a col
lege education. He told the
freshmen that they were going
to appreciate life in a fuller
sense after coming to college.
He compared the benefits of a
college education to a geometric
ratio bringing immeasureable re
turns in the future and contin
ued saying that each year meant
more than the one preceding it
in college.
In closing he stated that the
University was now going
through a period of severe econ
omizing and that this fact should
not cause a slack in pace. He
said that no one should let
these difficulties deprive him of
his life investment a college were forced to close up after op
education. He closed by asking crating for a month or more,
the class to work on and to con- j For a while the building was
tinue their education- and to go rented by a Greek cafe and cafe-
nnf anrl mnlfA their mark in
North Carolina and the South.
He congratulated them for be
ing the most progressive fresh
man class ever to attend the
University.

DI SENATE WILL
HOLD IMPORTANT
SESSION TONIGHT
An exceptionally interesting
and important meeting of the Di
Senate will be held tonight.
President Rector will preside
over the discussions on the bills
which will be brought up. A
new treasurer will be elected to
succeed Pat Patterson who has
held the office up to now. A
lively discussion is expected over
I the bills to be brought up. The
main topic of discussion will
probably center about the reso
lution offered by Senator Mc
Kee: "Resolved. That the Di
Senate go on record in favor of
the confirmation of Justice Par
keras associate justice of the
United States supreme court."
The Di seems to be very much
interested in this subject and
many heated discussions are ex
pected. ,
Other bills to be discussed are
"Resolved, That the state should
support at its university those
students possessed of unusual
talent, but lacking the necessary
funds," and "Resolved, That the
governor of North Carolina be
given the veto power." :
The report of the banquet
committee consisting of Sena
tors Dungan, Dratler and Pat
terson will also be given tonight.
According to preliminary plans,
the Di will have a banquet .at the
Carolina Inn, probably, the third
week in May. This too will be
of interest to all attending.
Those who are absent from the
meeting will; be automatically
dropped. The president of the
Di urges all to attend and take
part in the stimulating discus
sions. CAFETERIA GOES
OUT OF BUSINESS
Successful Management by Mrs.
Troutman Keeps Welcome In
Open For wo Years.
The Welcome In cafeteria;
next to the post office, closed
its doors this morning to further
business. This cafeteria, which
has been under the management
of Mrs. W. E. Troutman, has
been operating for approximate
ly the last; two years.
Prior to the opening of the
Welcome In cafeteria the build-
ing was occupied by numerous
other cafeterias, all of which
teria combined; but on account
of business ; troubles, it soon
closed its doors.' Then just be
fore the Welcome In ' cafeteria
occupied the place, a cafeteria
was operated there under the
name of the Carolina cafeteria,
which also closed up in a short
while. '
; When Mrs. Troutman opened
the new Welcome In cafeteria
some two years ago, everyone
thought that it would meet the
same fate as all of the others.
But by good business manage
ment and by serving a good!
menu, the Welcome In was able,
to continue much longer than
any of its predecessors.
The announcement of its
closure this morning came as a
blow to the community. No
plans have yet been made, for a
future opening.

POLICE OFFICERS
raOTOG RACE
Model T Rum-Runners Almost
Escape Local Law
Enforcers.
; (By D. C. McDuffie)
Policemen Wright and Lloyd
had a very exciting experience
Saturday night: - A , report came
to these officers that a 1925
model Ford roadster was coming
through Chapel Hill loaded with
liquor. The Chapel Hill police
men Were too smart, however,
to, allow this fast model T Ford
roadster to come through the
town of Chapel Hill without
some disturbance, so they waited
for the vicious rum-runner to
make his appearance.
The officers were soon con-
- vinced that the report was a
very true one, because they soon
heard the sound of a . buzzing
model T motor. The Chief and
Officer Wright were in the
force's model A Ford facing in
the same direction the rum-run-ner
was coming and prepared
to make a fast "take-off." This
dangerous rum-runner, unaware
of the fact that two officers were
waiting for him, came by driv
ing very slowly, but as soon as
he saw the two officers in blue
he advanced his speed consider-
ably,
Chief Lloyd
and Officer
Wright were off on the second.
According to the report it was
impossible for them to gain
much speed on the fast model T
Ford until they were almost
within the city limits of Dur-

PRESIDENT CHASE
WILL SPEAK AT
HONOROTEMONY
Scheduled For 8:30 At Metho
dist Church; Much Interest
In Event.
The Order of the Golden
Fleece will hold its annual tap-;
ping in the Methodist church at
8:30 o'clock tonight. President
Harry Woodburn Chase will be
the speaker. Professor Horace
Williams will introduce Dr.
Chase.
Hooded figures wll stalk the
aisles, in impressive ceremony,
to pounce upon the select few
who have been sufficiently out
standing in the different student
activities to merit membership
in the Fleece.
The usual wide interest is cen- ,
teringsC-n tonight's tapping, nat
urally enough, since Golden
Fleece is the second oldest col
legiate honorary organization in
the country, and since member
ship is generally considered the
highest campus honor obtain
able. -
Speculation among students
as to which of their number
would be tapped has been rife
for months. Prospects of stu
dent leaders have been common
topics of discussion for weeks.
The Daily Tar Heel put forth
the" list thought by staff mem
bers to have the best chances in
the issue of April 25.
Tonight's tapping, when- the
black-robed argonauts roam the
aisles, will bring the long period
to an end, and from all indica
tions there will be a record
crowd present for the annually
impressive ceremony.
President Chase's appearance
tonight will be one of the last
opportunities for the retiring
head of the University to appear
in an official capacity before the
student body as a whole.
