When the Council ruled out

fraternities," Pan Hel President

Chorus Spots Open
Opera Plans Released
By Art Xanthos
Plans for the operas to be pre
sented by the Musifc Department
were announced yesterday by
Joel Carter, Choral Director. The
operas are Gluck's "Orpheus and
Euridice" and Pergolesi's "La
Serva Padrona," to be performed
together on April 1 and 2 in Hill
Since the Gluck is largely a
choral opera, a large and capable
chorus is necessary for its pro
duction and there are still open
ings in each section for choral
singers, Carter said.
As the chorus will have only a
little part in the drarnatic action,
there will be only one or two re
hearsals a week until the last
week of rehearsal. Anyone inter
ested may see Carter in his stu-
jdio between 2 and 6 o'clock this

the card stums got underway at
7 o'clock according to schedule,
but the actual rally was slow get
ting started. Finally the cheer
leaders arrived, and then Joe
Chamblis complete with long red
hair, a blue and white skirt and
a sweater that would make even
Evelyn West turn green with
envy, appeared on the stage and
livened up the crowd with cheers
that were supposedly imported
from Peace College in Raleigh.
r But it wasn't until Coach Tom
Scott came onto the stage that
the crowd really began yelling,
and then their cheers completely
filled Memorial HalL
When Scott finished praising
the team by saying "tomorrow
night we play Duke again, and
I think that the boys will prob
ably come out on top," the crowd
gave him a standing ovation.
Nemo Nearman, introduced by
eHad Cheerleader Norm Sper stole
the show with his introduction
of the other players.
Sper, who never once mention
ed the words "Beat Duke, asked
the students present not to throw
programs tonight. -
"I know we all get mad at
some of the decisions of the ref
erees," he said, "but if the floor
gets too littered with the pro
grams, tne reierees win nave a
perfect right to call a technical
four on our team."
Sper had prefaced his request
with a remark that Frank Leahy
made to him when he was in
New York recently.
"When Carolina came up to
play us in New York," the Notre
Dame coach told Sper, "I re
ceived a thrill I had never ex
perienced before. It was the first
time an opposing school had ever
cheered for my players when they
were taken from the field."
"We have a reputation for our
good sportsmanship and spirit,"
Sper said, "So let's keep up that
reputation tomorrow night."
The University Club had
planned such an event before the
N. C. State game several weeks
ago, but only a handful of stu
dents turned out for the affair,
and it was called off.
Plans for last night's rally were
laid by a University Club com
mittee headed by Frank Allston.
