1L L Tfte Oldest College Daily In The South ' P VOT TTHrcT ft f 1 t V 4 benior Superlatives, Officers Nominated IWwf LUS ft nlr banquet last niht featured the music of nurst Hatch and his rising campus band, the Four Sounds of Sound and Fury , and .the University quartet. During the business meet ing alter the banquet nominations were made for the permanent officers of the class of '42 and the senior superlatives, results to be announced as soon as the ballots are tabulated. Opening the banquet held in the crowded main dining room of DTHEditor Plays Drunk In S&F Show . Saturday afternoon, at the "Are You Kidding?" Sound and .Fury-Daily Tar Heel extravaganza, Orville Camp bell, dignitary of Graham Memorial's second floor, steps from his editorial pedestal to wander in during the show, carting two quarts of whiskey, and generally disturbs the already disturbed proceedings. This will be but one of the features of the Sound and Fury spring produc tion, Tiny Hutton, member of the di recting staff, promised yesterday. Campus figures from Truman Hobbs to Jack Dube will come in for a share of the ridicule. The show will be presented in con nection with the Red Norvo concert, when that maestro from the dens of Westchester packs up his woodpile and treks to Chapel Hill. The entire show, Sound and Fury, Red Norvo, et al, will begin at 2:30 Saturday after noon in Memorial hall. Admission: couple, 25 cents; stag, 15 cents. Such outstanding campus entertain ers as Frank Brink, the Four Sounds, Kat Charles, Fred Calligan, Paul D'Elia and Jackie Ray will highlight the hilarity, along with a host of new songs written by students, especially for the show. As explained earlier this week to a bewildered DTH cub who stood flab bergasted in the middle of the rehear sal stage, the show will consist of a group of skits and acts, interspersed with music, gags, and general screw- ballism. "Everything goes, including our sanity," said Sheldon Coons, brain buster of the directing sextet. The en tire board of directors, which also claims credit for producing, lighting, costuming, writing, and snaring- the original idea from the middle of a fo, are Sheldon Coons, Arty Fischer, Ben Hall, Tiny Hutton, Bud Imbrey, and Tom Waldman. This show represents a reversion to the Sound and Fury comedy tactics of last year.. It is a presentation of short skits, instead of the multiple act, integrated performance of the winter. Garner Takes Over DTH Sports Today Mark Garner, appointed Wednes day to the post of sports editor on the Daily Tar Heel, assumes duties as of today.

C, FRIDAY, MAY 15, 1942 Junior-Senior Dance Set Opens Tonight; Brown, Now Partrick Appointed OSCDHead Hall Partrick, rising junior, has been appointed Student coordinator of the Office of Student Civilian Defense to assume office next September, Louis Harris, student coordinator and chair man of the executive committee, an nounced yesterday. , The appointment was made after two weeks of investigation by the execu tive committee, more than a dozen stu dents being considered for the appoint ment. Partrick's appointment came as a surprise to campus government circles yesterday. Although some speculation had been manifest in Graham Memori al, Partrick was not considered by any as a possibility. . Partrick has been active on the cross country squad for two years, noted by his fellow runners as a quiet but ef ficient member of the athletic branch of the University. He has participated in student government to the extent of one term in the student legislature. . Harris announced that appointments would be made to all other positions in OS CD by Monday and would "be released through the regular chan nels." Most of the members of next year's executive board have been chos en, he said. Other positions that must be filled are the executive offices in the depart ments of Civilian Protection, Morale, Information, and Defense. It is gener ally expected that Bert Bennett, presi dent of the student body, will continue in his official capacity as head of Ci vilian Protection and Defense. Harris pointed out that he may be shifted to chief Air Raid Warden.

Feminine exponents of the senior cause are Peggy Lou Futrelle, Mary Caldwell, Diddy Kelley, Jean Hahn and Jean McKenzie with voluptu ous Tiny Hutton acting as bat boy. Don Wilson, who will umpire the game with Ellis Freedman, stated yes terday that "Me and Ellis are both sophomores and we ain't got nothin' against either team so it'll be a fair contest unless we get a better offer than the 25c defense stamp the juniors offered us." Temporary bleachers will be erected for the game.

Fleece Men To Be Tapped Annual selection of members of the Golden Fleece, cloaked. in mystery and the supernatural, will be held in Me morial hall Sunday evening at 8 o'clock. Between 8 and 8 :30 organ music will fill the darkened aisles, and immediate ly following the doors will be closed and locked. Pursuing the policy main tained for many years, the Golden Fleece will not divulge the names of the men to be tapped. Following the program at Memorial hall the newly elected members will be feted at a banquet in the Carolina Inn. The Golden Fleece was founded by Dr. Horace Williams in 1903 for the purpose of bringing together represen tatives of various groups on the cam pur, in an effort to unite them. Since then the Fleece has continued to select members from various representative and industrious groups on the campus. Since its formation in 1903 the Fleece has tapped 361 members. Contrary to popular belief that the Fleece meets only once a year to induct members, the members meet regularly and endeavor to carry out its original function. . While the Fleece cannot act through themselves, they carry on their activi ties through other campus organiza tions.
