Faces Crisis as Costs Rise, Sales Fall
Made in Effort
By; Philip Carden
After one year of operation the new
University Dining Hall Cafeteria has
been forced a second time to readjust
its prices and now faces an extremely
.critical financial situation, it was
Although exact figures were not
available yesterday afternoon, Assist
ant Controller L. B. Rogerson disclosed
that patronage of the new dining hall
had not come up to expectations and
that it has been operating at a loss for
The new building, which was f inane
d partly by the WPA and partly by
borrowed funds, was intended to be
self-liquidating. One thousand dollars
must be paid on it every month.
"Something has to be done," Rog
erson said. "The cafeteria cannot show
a sustained loss since no subsidizing
funds are available for it."
He pointed out that a new price sys
tem which went into effect Thursday
is an experiment to meet the problems
and admitted that it might not prove
to be a solution. He said that if trade
decreased, as seemed likely from the
first two days of operation, another
plan would be tried.
It was learned that business decreas
ed last quarter and dropped off sharp
ly the first days of operation this' quar
ter. One of the employees estimated
that, "scarcely fifty" student passed
down the "light side" counter at break
fast yesterday morning.
Under the new pricing plan it is pos
sible to get a meat, two vegetables,
bread, butter, drink," salad and dessert
for 27 cents, or for 38 cents, depend
ing on the expense of the selection.
Last year a plate with a similar
combination was available for 25 cents

was sold for 30 cents.

Nye, originally scheduled to speak

Original plans called for Nye to de
bate on possible repeal of the Johnson
Act with Senator Lister Hill of Ala
bama; but Joslin announced that Hill
will not be able to speak at the Uni
versity, so Nye's speech will be "more
of a general nature." Senator Nye,
recognized by many as Americas
strongest isolationist, caused much
comment recently when he proposed
a resolution demanding an investiga

ownings in this country. He advocated
that those holdings should be com

MADISON SQUARE GARDEN,
New York, Jan. 4. Two perianal fouls
in the last 50 seconds of pl 4 tcved
disastrous to the University of. North
Carolina White Phantoms here tcnht,
and Fordham university won ? . aey
of a ball game, 42 to 41.
Joe Nelson had just sIk i - field
goals from the left court a. w last
two minutes of play and the - Keels
were ahead, 41 to 40,
Then George Glamack. who never
played a better game than did in
the Garden tonight, fouled fch,
Fordham center. Babich had two snots,
made one, and the ball game was tied
up 41 all. The foul called on Glamack
was the fourth for the All-American
George, and he left the game tonight
amid the greatest ovation any athlete
received in this historic stadium.
George was truly great. He scored
17 points to lead both teams, and his
defensive play, especially in the sec
ond half, was almost perfect.
Back to the ball game. With the
score tied, there was 30 seconds of play
remaining and the ball was in Fordham
possession. Loeffler, Fordham for
ward, attempted to shoot, and Rose
fouled him. Loeffler made one shot
good to give Fordham the lead, and
with 12 seconds play remaining Ford
ham refused the second shot, took the
ball out, and froze it to end the game.
Carolina had led .26 to 21 at the
half. To open the second period Ford
ham grabbed six points and went ahead,
27 to 26. Pessar sunk a two pointer
and Carolina led again.
Fordham then grabbed five more.
Trailing, 33 to 28, Carolina went on
the march. Severin shot a long one
along with Jimmy Howard.
A foul shot and a field goal gave
Fordham three more. The score read
36 to 34 for Fordham and Glamack
went to work. Two field goals on his
part tied it up, and a foul shot put the
Tar Heels ahead, 37 to 36.
Fordham grabbed four, and Nelson
dittoed for Carolina. Here the two
fouls were called and the ball game

Sound and Fury
"We hope the students' interest in
super-colossal entertainment, and mer
cenary gifts from Mr. Claus, will co
operate in booming ticket sales for
Sound and Fury productions this
week," Carroll McGaughey, president
of the organization said yesterday.
Sound and Fury members will can-
vass the dormitories for sales, and
tickets will also be on sale at the of
fice in Graham Memorial, in the
YMCA, and at Ledbetter-Pickard's in
Definite dates for tryouts and the
initial production, "Standing Room
Only," will be set on - Tuesday night
when members of the club meet in the
Graham Memorial banquet hall at 8
o'clock. Everyone is required to be
opiriion overnight when that is de
sired. The organization, designed to
include proportionately all sections of
the campus, is similar to that of na
tional systems which have proven to
be within four per cent accurate. It
also resembles a special political poll
by the Daily Tar Heel last year
which predicted the result in the stu
dent body presidential election with
virtually exact percentages.
