for more rapid distribution of grades
Although the faculty meeting would
ordinarily be called next week, the
complications caused by the Institute
of Human Relations " program will
postpone it to a later date, as yet un
decided by Dean R. B. House.
First recommendations: Written
examinations on five- and six-hour
courses shall be limited to a period of
three hours, and on three- and four
hour courses to a period of two hours.
- Second recommendations : Exami
nations of a practical nature, which
are a part of regular final examina
tions, shall be given at least a week
before the regular examination period.
This clause would prohibit the giv
ing of a two section final, for example,
a lab quiz and a theory quiz, on the
same day because in that situation
the professor could specify any time
duration for the examination.
The word practical is used as the
antithesis of 'theoretical.'
Third recommendation: Within one
week preceding the regular examina

a quiz or assign a paper that is not

Bill Cochrane Calls Special Session
To Act On Eight Proposed Changes
Eight amendments designed to smooth over rough spots and
fill in gaps of the present student legislature constitution will be
brought to the floor of a special session next Wednesday, night,
speaker Bill Cochrane announced last night.
The present document, drafted by a special legislative commit
tee and approved by the student body last spring, "has been gen-

Ends Weekend Set
Starting last night with the typical
Tar Heel rain, the sophomore-Grail
dance set winds up tonight as band
leader Enoch Light plays for an in
formal dance open to the whole cam
pus. Sponsored jointly by the Grail and
the class, the dance will last from 9
until 12 o'clock on the floor of Wool
len gym. Admission will be $1.00.
Large Crowd Expected
With political campaigns already
starting under way, a large turnout is
due for the first open dance on the
campus this spring. Light will also
furnish music this afternoon for a tea
dance from 4:30 to 6:30 open only to
The New York orchestra leader was
hurriedly snatched from another
scheduled engagement last Wednesday
night by the Grail's agent when
Claude Hopkins, Harlem pianist, got
in hot water with the musicians' union.
A regular broadcaster over the CBS
network, Light has just' finished - a
two-year run at the Taft hotel in
New York City:
Sophomores last night attended a
formal dance, the first of the set, from
9 until . 1 o'clock. Freddy Johnson j
played. Class officers and dance com-1
mitteemen escorted their dates in a !
figure after intermission.
Fish Worley, director of Graham
Memorial, played host after the dance
to all second-year, men with, dates.
Another tireless fireside affair, the
open nouse served vvoriey s ancient
cinemas, peanuts in the shell and
punch but no lights.
This year's sophomore dances are
the first to have a nationally-famous
name-band. Last year, Dean Hudson
and his orchestra played. Bert Ben
nett is chairman of the sophomore
dance committee and Johnny Hearn
is president of the class.
Regulations concerning the compre
hensive examinations for the spring
quarter were released yesterday by
Dean Hobbs' office.
' Students who have three and one-
half courses to complete this quarter
for graduation in June and those who
needed twelve courses last September
and have four to complete this quar
ter for graduation may take their
comprehensives during the spring
quarter : ' "r ' . '
Students who could have graduated
in June of this year but who have now
four courses . to take on account of
failure, - either in a course or m the
comprehensive taken during the fall
or winter, may not take the four
courses and the comprehensive exam

Give Plan For World Union To HRI
volume and predicted great things for
a practical plan of world union among
the democracies. .
Promptly in 1939 Streit formed an
organization called Federal Union,
Inc. By last month it had 60 chapters
in the United States, 250 chapters in
Great Britain. Over 50,000 copies of
"Union Now," once shunned by pub
lishers, have been sold, and the vol
ume has passed its sixth printing.
Purpose of Streit's campaign is to
show that federal union stems from
an American idea invented by the con
stitutional fathers 150 years ago when
they sought to create a workable gov
ernment without depriving states of
autonomy in local affairs. Streit
maintains that the still existing free

The amendments, which Vere drawn
up by the speaker and passed yester
day by the ways and means committee,
must be voted on by a two-thirds
quorum of the legislature and then
ratified by the student body on elec
tions day, April 22.
The most extensive of the eight pro
posals orders all legislature represent
atives to be elected in the spring. The
constitution, as it now stands, causes
a slow start in the fall because un
der it the women's dormitories, the
Interdormitory council, the Woman's
association, the Pan-Hellenic council
and the Interfraternity council may
select members at the beginning of the
Another significant amendment
rules that dormitory representatives
shall be elected directly by the resi
dents instead of by the Interdormi
tory council as at present.
A third provides for the election of
six hold-over members to be chosen
by and from the outgoing legislature
in the spring. This measure, suggest
ed to Cochrane in the fall by the stu
dent government committee, would
leave the" legislature a nucleus with
which to get under way the following
A speaker pro-tem, unmentioned in
the current constitution" would be
elected from the legislature along with
its other minor officers at the begin
ning of the year, according to another
amendment. Duties would be to pre
side in the absence of the speaker and
whenever the speaker wishes to speak
on a bill then on the floor. In case of
the resignation of the speaker, an
other speaker, not necessarily the
speaker pro-tem, would be duly elected
by the legislature.
A. fifth would eliminate the two
present ex-officio members, the edi
tor of the Daily Tar Heel and the
vice president of the Athletic associa

closed, already has the approval of
