AIM OF NATIONAL
Accomplishments of Federation
In Student Expression and
i Organization Discussed.
"In comparison with the stu
dent movement of other nations,
there has been a decided lack of
organized student expression in
regard to affairs of state in
America," stated Mayne Al
bright in assembly yesterday
Describing how the founding
of the National Student Federa
tion of America, in which he
represents the South ". . . has
leen a definite step towards stu
dent expression," Albirght
sketched a few of its recent ac
complishments and. projects. He
stated that the Federation has
rnafle possible tours for debat
ing teams, radio broadcasts in
formative of its' purposes, and
the publication of the World
Student Mirror. .
In addition to this, the Fed
eration has taken stands on the
substitution of arbitration for
force, and the prohibtion ques
tion. It has also planned to
conduct polls on important is
sues and to survey political in
terests in American colleges.
Furthering his explanation of
ihe National Student Federa
tion, the speaker mentioned that
a great deal of interest ;was
shown in international relations
by tie large attendance at the
Wager Returns To
Paul W. Wagerhas returned
to the University, after a two
years leave of absence, to re
sume his duties- as member of
the faculty in the department of
rural social economics.
During these last two years
Wager has been serving as a
taxation economist in the re
search project, called -the For
est Taxation Inquiry, carried on
by the United States Forest
Service. For the first six months
he worked in North Carolina,
but since the middle of 1930 he !
has been in Connecticut.
Seventy Colleges in Poll; Favor
World Court ; Oppose Compul
sory Military Training. '
A nation-wide straw vote on
disarmament announced by the
Council from their offices in New
York City, reveals ninety-two
per cent of the 24,345 students
voting in seventy different col
leges in favor of reducing arma
ments and sixty-three per cent
for the United States setting an
example by beginning to disarm
without waiting for other na
tions. Luther Tucker, Yale '31,
who is chairman of the council,
said the poll shows one-third of
the students favor 100 per cent
cuts in armaments, provided all
nations agree to the .same . ratio,
while one in seven advocate a
100 per cent cut for the United
States without regard to other
Compulsory Training !
The poll shows a very strong
feeling against the compulsory
feature of " military training in
colleges. Eighty one per cent of
the students voting on this ques
tion are opposed to compulsory
drill. On the other hand, only
thirty-eight per cent favored
eliminating ' military training
from all colleges. Of those vot
ing one-seventh had had mili
tary training. Seventy-four per
cent, of the votes cast supported
American adherence to the
World Court upon the basis of
the' Root Protocols. -
Student interest in disarma
ment is revealed in the high per
centage of those voting in many
colleges. Eighty-four per. cent
of the entire student body cast
ballots at-. Amherst, seventy
eight per cent at Yale, and sev
enty per cent an Mount Holyoke.

Village License Tags
The 1932 automobile license
tags of the town of Chapel Hill
are ready for delivery at the
town manager's office. Every
car-owner in the visage must
have one. Those who have not
procured the tags by January 15
are subject to arrest. ,
Staff Grades Are High
Five of the thirty Univer
sity students who made all
"A's" for the fall quarter were
members of the Daily Tar Heel
staff: T. W. Blackwell, A. T.
Dill, W. V. Shepherd, J. J.
Sugarman, and T. C. Worth.
Eight other staff members
also madfe the honor roll, which
goes to show that scholarship
and outside activities do mix.
- (EDITOR'S NOTE: In the same vein in which a survey of University
courses was presented before the holidays, the Daily Tar Heel continues with
this issue a comprehensive summary of campus institutions with the idea
of causing every citizen of the University to become better acquainted with
the policies and systems of operation of his service organizations.)
GERMAN CLUB ..
Perhaps the most debated or
ganization of the campus is the
German Club and its control of
social events of the University.
Twice within the past year its
authority has been questioned
and twice seemingly it has sue-
cessf defended itself inso-
much as no measures have been
taken against it.
Its beginnings are not defi
nitely known but as early as
1833 a organization was formed
with the purpose of presenting
a commencement ball. Invita
tions to the governor and to
men of dignity throughout the
state were sent and during the
following years many notables of
the state attended. In 1885,
the Gymnasium Association,
formed by students of the Uni
versity but not under direct
University management, con
ducted the commencement
In 1911, the Carolina Cotil
lion Club, embracing non-fraternity
men who desired this
form of social life was organiz
ed. Up until 1925 the German
Club sponsored dances given
directly by the club, while - a
number of different committees
of organizations as well as the
Vigilance Committee were in
charge of social events.
Gradually, however, the . Ger
man Club by the efficient man
agement of its affairs was ab
sorbing the control of dances at
In 1926, following a rather
disorderly German Club dance,
dancing was suspended entirely
and the decision was finally
reached that the faculty com
mittee on dances should have
entire supervision of such
functions, that the faculty com-
mittee or the student council'
should have charge of discip
linary action, and that the fac
ulay committee should grant
permission for dances. The
Vigilance Committee was abol
ished and the German Club was
given supervision of dances after
a probationary period.
BIBLIOGRAPHY ON DISARMAMENT
A number of periodical references dealing with disarma-.
ment, which are especially interesting at this time of student
agitation for military reduction and the approach of the
Geneva conference, have been -placed at the main desk of the
library , this morning ready; to circulate. The books on the
subject are: , '

Since then the organization
has existed in its present form.
A president, a vice-president,
and a secretary-treasurer, are
elected by the club' while they
serve on the executive com
mittee with six members ap
pointed by the president. To

mittee on dances, the committee

The student method of . con
ducting dances as established in
1926 has been considered iSO
successful here that many phases
of it have been "adopted by
neighboring schools. Requests
by other colleges to explain the
plan have been frequent. It was
organized on the conditional
principles that the . authority
over dances be vested in only a
faculty and student committee
for a proper working basis and
that the books of the' organiza
tion be closed.
Permission for Dances
Permissions to give dances
are granted to all organizations
responsible for the conduct of
their members after 6:00 p. m.
on days permitted1 by faculty
regulation, which are Friday
or . Saturday during regular
school sessions. In the case of
several large dance organiza
tions, this rule is . suspended to
allow a dance" at "other hours.
There is no rule about conflict
ing dates with the exception of
the Grail so that the charity
work of that organization will
not be harmed by small attend
ance. The rule about conflicts
permits as many dances at prop
er hours in one night as or
ganizations may wish, but policy
usually prevents a great, num
ber. - .
When an organization applies
for a dance, the committee in
charge, consisting of at least
three members, makes applica
tion to the chairman of the fac
ulty committee on dancing sev
eral days beforehand, stating
time, place, and character of
dance, giving names of com

TO CONSIDER CUT
Advisory Committee Holds Con
ference in President's Office
To Discuss Latest Slash.
Members of the University
faculty advisory committee
met Thursday in the office of
President Frank Graham to con
sider ways of meeting the ser
ious problem of a thirty per
cent cut in the University -appropriations
by the state bud
get bureau. The conference
lasted almost the whole after
noon. President Graham stated that
any conclusions reached by the
committee would be reported to
the executive committee of the
board of trustees 'at the next
meeting of that body and would
also be discussed at faculty and
trustee meetings in the future.
The president pointed out
that. f.liA slasTi in Annrrmriatirms

time of the year was a grave
crisis for the University be
cause a thirty per cent cut now
would mean a sixty per cent cut
for the remaining two quarters
of the school year.
Although the members of the
faculty appear to be taking the
blow with calmness, neverthe
less, the present situation does
make more acute the problems
that a good many faculty mem
bers have with regards to of
fers from other institutions
which in some cases are double
the salaries they are now re
ceiving. Report has it that the
head of one important'Univer
sity division had under consid
eration a $15,000 a year salary
from a western university.
Members of the faculty ad
vistory committee are : Profes

New Dog Pound
An old garage behind the town
hall has been converted into a
dog "pound. When a stray dog
wearing a license is taken in by
the police, the owner will be noti
fied and may come to the pound
and recover the dog by payment
of a fine. Unlicensed dogs will
be kept in the pound five" days
and, if not claimed, will be killed.
No more scholarships are
available this quarter, accord
ing to R. B. House, executive
secretary of the University
and chairman of the scholar
ship committee. " The only
possible vacancies were in. en
dowed scholarships. An in
vestigation has shown that
there are no such vacancies.

Statistics from the registrar's
office show that the list of honor
roll students for the fall quarter
of 1931 broke all existing rec-
ords with the number of 324, ex
ceeding the fall quarter of 1930
by twenty, and the winter quar
ter of 1931 by twenty-two. A
new record was also made by
the number of students receiv
ing "A" in all subjects, thirty be

quarter as compared to the pre
vious record of twenty-five for
the fall quarter a year previous.
The college of liberal arts, in
the lead with honor roll students
as usual, had 169 this past fall
against 152 in the fall quarter
)f 1930. The school of commerce .
with fifty-one topped its previ
ous mark by three, while the
school of education made forty,
one more than last fall. The
school of engineering also bested
its former number by one, hav
ing thirty-five last quarter. The
school of applied science with
twenty-eight accounted for eight

school of pharmacy with nine

SCIENCE HAS NOT
Famous Physicist at Wisconsin
Disavows Dogmatic Ma
terialism in Science.
Dr. Robert A. Millikan; phy
sicist and winner of the . Nobel
prize in 1923, defended modern
science as a branch of human
understanding which does not
conflict with religion, in a speech
delivered to the students at the
University of Wisconsin.
"There is no - evidence," he
stated, "that the march of sci
ence has undermined religion,
and if it did, it is probable that
such a religion should be under
mined." , " v'"-;
Dr. Millikan exemplified his
statement by the fact that the
great scientists from Galileo tp
Einstein have revered either a
supreme will, mind, or spirit.
"The scientific method which
was developed by Galileo," said
Dr. Millikan, "consisted iri'; dis
carding all prior postulates, all
intuitive axioms, all superna
tural authorities, and appealing
by experimental method to the
tribunal of brute facts. But the
coordinating into full agreement
of all facts, scientific and phi
losophical, is impossible at the
present time. Dogmatic ma
terialism in-science, as a result
I of recent discoveries in the fields
of electro-dynamics and radio
activity and physical sciences in
'general, is dead."
