A general student strike was avert
ed at State college last night when
Col. J. W. Harrelson, head of the
Raleigh division of the University,
asked that the students give the fac
ulty until Tuesday to fully consider
the request for removal of the ban
on the final commencement dance.
With the promise of Colonel Har
relson that every angle of the ques
tion would be investigated, student
leaders went about yesterday evening
persuading students already assem
bling for a huge mass rally to give
the faculty council "one last chance."
Since the burning of E. L. Cloyd,
dean of students, in effigy Tuesday
night, sentiment has risen to a fever
pitch among some 1200 of the 1800
students enrolled at State as the day
passed without any active action be
ing taken by the faculty.
Colonel Harrelson attempted to
check the possibility of a strike when
he spoke before some 700 students
at freshman assembly during the
morning. His principal objection to
any further move was based on an
argument set forth against the gen
eral consolidation plan of President
Frank Graham some two years ago.
He called to their attention that a
survey was made of State college by
a group of authorities who reported
that the school had a rating no higher
than the average junior college, and

OTHER OFFICERS !

By Buck Gcnter
The Student party last night un

chairman of the party for next year.
The-other officers will be named at a
meeting to be held at the beginning of
Mitchell Britt, who has been acting
chairman of the party since the
resignation of Bill Cole, presided over
Crystal has worked with the Stu
dent party since its origin three years
In taking over the reins of the
party, Crystal stated:
"I am going to keep the party ideals
and keep democracy on the campus,
and continue the policy of letting the
campus vote for men put up as can
didates by the Student party.
"I just want to remind the campus
of the ideals of the party, and that
democracy is our watchword."
Crystal said that he had "only the
highest praise for Mitchell Britt and
Bill Cole, and I am going to fill their
shoes as capably as I can."
The new chairman stated that he
wanted a correction of the misunder
standing on the campus concerning
fraternities in the Student party.
"Fraternities have no interest in
the party," he said, "except as indi
vidual people, and any fraternity man
elected to an office by the Student
party is elected by a popular acclaim
of the student body, which the Stu
dent party represents."
Warden; Harry Tyndall, Scribe; and j
George Hunt was reelected treasurer.
At this business meeting the new
President appointed committees to
draw up a set of by-laws and to put
