Queen Negotiates Steps
Of Forest Theatre
For Smooth Coronation
Marjorie Johnstonpreserved proper
dignity yesterday afternoon despite
the uneven steps of the Forest theatre
and trouble with the train of her

of colorful dances introduced by. a

The other coeds in the May court
manipulated long pastel dresses, high
heels, flowers, and the stone inclines
"bordering the theatre with a skill that
was nothing short of perfect balance.
The dances, of both Greek and Old
English variety, brought comments of
"What are they doing that for?"
from the children in the large audi
The traditional May Pole dance,
performed by 26 Chapel Hill grade
school girls, was better understood
than the spiritual Greek dances.
A dance of the spirits, representing
the spirits of gaiety, was performed
with evident glee and appropriate
shouts from the six dancers.
An authentic Old English folk
dance, directed by Lynn Gault, bore
a strange resemblance to Fish .Wor
ry's beloved square dancing.
Milton's "L'Allegro,"' theme of the
pageant, was adapted to May Day use
by Genie Loaring-Clark, writer and
director of the celebration. Beth Tor
pin and Aida Epps assisted Miss Loaring-Clark
in the production. 1
Attendants in the May Court, re
cently elected by the coeds and men
students, were Bobbie Winton, Julia
McConnell, Hulda Warren, Mary
Hawkins, Hortense Kelley, Frances
Gibson, Eunice Patten, Peggy Lou Fu

Dr. E. J.
Woodhouse, Ericson To Meet
Tonight in Debate on War
To Be Fiery
What promises to be the most ex
plosive debate of- the year will erupt
on the rostrum of Gerrard hall at
8:30 tonight when two violently op
posed campus professors take sides
on vital war issues confronting United
. Dr. E. J. Woodhouse of the politi
cal science department, strong advo
cate of unlimited aid to Britain and
immediate United States entry into
the war, will clash with Dr. E. E
Ericson of the English department.
Ericson works with the American
Peace Mobilization, follows same stand
as isolationist Senators Burton K.
Wheeler and Gerald P. Nye.
America's stake in the war, the
need and danger of immediate parti
cipation, argued by two men firmly
convinced of the truth of their re
spective views, is expected to set off
the spark that will send discussion
flashing out to the audience and back
again to the platform.
An inkling of student opinion is an
ticipated from the debate as no con
census has been taken since the Car
olina Political union poll on the Lease
Lend bill last quarter. That poll
showed students overwhelmingly m
favor of all-out aid to Britain but a
reluctance to participate in actual
Once mayor of a small New Hamp
shire township, Woodhouse now

science, is affiliated with the CPU and

subject of insinuations and ridicule

stands, taught in a Chinese university
for several years, is recognized as a
local authority on international com
