inspecting the Vivarium in the new
. Site Of New Quarters
Said To Be One Of Most
Beautiful On Campus
By CAMPBELL IRVING
Occupying a site that is conceded
to be one of the most beautiful natural
grounds for a building on the Univer
has been put in active classroom use
with the opening of the spring quarter.
The approximate cost of the well
equipped new building is $187,000, in
cluding the equipment. It is only one
project included in the building pro
gram of the Greater University of
North Carolina which has cost over
$6,200,000.
When it was learned that a new
building might be built for the Zoology
denartment. members of the depart'
ment drew up plans as to how the build-
inff should be constructed and how
should be allowed. Out
lUUWU
of these plans emerged the building
now in operation. The three men most
instrumental in the planning of the
building and in the realization of these
nlnn were R. E. Coker, head of the
department, D. P. Costello, and W. L.
Engels.
MUSEUM LOBBY
At th pntrance of the building,
which is three stories in height with
a completely utilized basement, there
is a museum lobby. Among the fea
tures of this lobby are the provisions
for live material. There are two large
aquaria and two cages for land ani
mals.
On this same floor there is an audi
torium which seats 120 people. This
is acoustically treated and con
tains a fire proof projection room. The

Campus Mourners
Shed Tears For
Late Miss Hawkins
Sadie Hawkins, nationally fa
mous leader for releasing the sup
pressed desires of women, died a
quick death on the University cam
pus yesterday morning.
Carolina coeds evidently thdught
it was groundhog day, for they all
crawled into their shells and refused
to come out and participate in an
event which has been a big hit at
colleges from coast to coast. .
A special communique received
late last night from Dogpatch stat
ed that all citizens of that commun
ity had heartily endorsed a bill
passed by the Dogpatch Reichstag
condemning the Carolina coed.
SERVICE
Funeral services were held in
beer, parlors yesterday afternoon as
the few proponents of the lost cause
drowned their sorrows over the
passing of Sadie, while the ghosts
of good intentions hovered dismally
in the air.
One student body leader last
night remarked, "After all, what
can you expect? The coeds are full
of the fine Carolina cooperative
spirit, but this is going too far. It
means they would have to go out and

CP Nominee Would
Bolster Honor Code
And Increase Morale
By BUCKY HARWARD

Carolina Party nominee for the stu
dent body vice-presidency, yesterday
explained his ideas for increasing the
effectiveness of the honor system and
announced senior Billy Winstead, co
captain of the 1940 boxing team and
president of Manly dormitory, as his
campaign manager.
Hubbard, junior from Sanford, has
won letters in football, boxing and
track and still holds the Fetzer Field
freshman record for the discus. He
has been a member of the Monogram
club for three years and on his class
executive committee for one. His
statement yesterday was as follows:
"There is no denying that here at
Carolina the student council func
tions well in punishing offenders of
the honor system. However, the real
need, as I see it, is not for more ef
fective punishment but rather for a
decrease in the number of expulsions
brought about by the bettering of stu
dent morale.
ALL SHOULD SIGN
"Freshmen are required to sign the
honor pledge a few weeks after they
enter school. If the other three class
es were required to do the same upon
their registration each year, I firmly
believe the whole student body will
develop a personal allegiance to the

IS UNLIKELY, SAYS
MAGAZINE EDITOR

By PHILIP GARDEN
Speaking out in answer to charges,
more or less outspoken, which have
been broadcast recently that the staff
nominations of publications, espe
cially the Carolina Magazine, should
be discredited. because of alleged op
portunities for "stuffing" the staff,
Mag editor Allen Green published an
open letter yesterday in decisive refu
tation of all accusations.
This issue came up as a result of the
announcement by the Carolina party
of Simons Roof as a candidate for edi
torship of the Magazine before the
traditional staff nomination.
Green's letter follows:
The Editor,
The Daily Tar Heel
Dear Sir:
In regard to the charges of dirty
politics in publications staff nomina
tions that have been levelled by edi
torial aspirants, particularly at the
Magazine, I would like to point out
that:
(1) The Magazine staff nominations
this year are under the control and
supervision of the Publications Union
board.
(2) The Publications Union board
set the qualifications for eligible vot
ersin the staff nominations, and ap
proved the list of those eligible to
participate.
(3) In the case of the Magazine, the
"handful of staff members," referred
to in yesterday's Tar Heel, consists of
fifty people, which would also obviate

act in that capacity for the produc
tion class.
. The work of the class is closely
connected with that of the Carolina
Playmakers of the Air, which each
Saturday afternoon presents a half
hour radio play over a nation-wide
Mutual Broadcasting company hookup.
Many members of the class have tak
en part in these broadcasts, either in
the acting end or the production side,
and several plays written by members
of the group are being considered for
production sometime during the com
ing term.
ASSISTANTS
Assisting Green with the writing
group are Betty Smith and Bob Finch,
who have written several radio plays
and have adapted for radio use some
of the better-known Playmaker dra
mas. More active members of the writing
class, those who have written one or
more plays and who have read them
at the weekly meetings, are John
