E 1 ft i mm am. m m i a J ; s v Improvements Planned For Rooms; Will Get Paint Job , Two Floor Lamps Two improvements in lower quad and other dorms are on their way, J. S. Bennett, director of operations, said' yesterday. Paint jobs, for those that need them, and two floor lamps will supplement the basic furniture now in use. Most of the lower quad social rooms have couches, one or two easy chairs, and a table or two. ; - Winston, Joyner, "Connor (A,B,C,), and Whitehead already have furnishings. Both White head and Connor, graduate dorm itories, are completely furnished. The rooms are -used for social events as well as for study and relaxation purposes. " Bennett said the University would see what could be done -"in the way of more improve ments" at the end of the spring quarter after his office sees what .the results of present improve ments are. - Last January 5, when the first social rooms were opened, Wil liam C. Friday, then assistant dean of students, said," We'll see how this one (Connor) looks, and then go ahead, as money jermits, with the others." Since then, the -University has supplied the grad uate dormitories with couches, chairs, lamps, ashtray stands, drapes, bridge tables, matching chairs, miscellaneous tables, and r , painting. Joyner dorm was paint ed last year, and both Winston and Joyner, undergraduate dorm itories,, have been equipped with some couches and lounge chairs. Men living in the lower quad have complained that existing rooms are inadequate and lack ing necessary equipment. One opinion, that of Ronald Jones, Aycock president from Fayette- ville, was typical: "You can't have anybody here; it's too small." The Aycock room has two couches, ah easy chair, a fireplace, and a table. It is not so large as one of the bigger rooms in Old East. The basement in Aycock is used for storage. Bennett has in dicated that such basement rooms could be used for recreation pur poses, "if there was a place to put the storage." Painting in the Aycock room has already started but residents feel that the room will still be. inadequate. Presently, lower quad rooms are used for bull sessions, card playing, some studying, ping pong, and relaxation. - None of of them have any decorations or equipment other than the basic furniture pieces. One "social room" looked deso late to this reporter. Used as a ping pong room, the Alexander room is barren except for a few scattered chairs. Some of the walls have been ripped to shreads. The basement was formerly used for a mass bimkroom in Septem ber and October when the read justment of dorm rooms from a 2-to-l backfired and there was riot enough room for many, stu dents. The room has since been vacated. Besides the large ping pong section, there are two other rooms that could be used for so cial purposes. They are now full N ew ousiness ueqree N OVf By C of furniture. Stacy dorm has two rooms, one, a typical "too , small" first floor social room, and a- downstairs ping pong room. Both are popu lar with residents. But other low er quad dorms either have - no basements or can't use them.

Officials other than Clogston at the assembly in Pullen hall in cluded Dr. H. A. Fisher, chairman of the Athletic Council; Willis Casey, assistant director of ath letics; and Everett Case, basket ball coach. Student body president George B. Pruden presided at the meet ing and told his fellow students that "State College is adgpting al new program, in which from now on,' nobody is going to hide any information. That's why these meetings are being called." He announced the next one for Feb. 14 or 21. Dr. Fisher urged the studenf s to "droo into my office at any time and tell me what's on your mind.

However, it was evident, in the results of a campus poll announc ed last Thursday night, that State students still are far from satis fied over he seating arrangements offered at athletic contests. Seventy-six percent voted "no when asked if they were pleased with their seats at the Coliseum. Asa fot j eeatsat ; football j games, qkly ; percent of the students polled were satisfied. Glenn Harden of Greensboro is the first girl to edit the stu- . dent newspaper as a daily.

Miss .Katherine Hill of New Bern, a student here in .1943, was editor of the Tar Heel - from October of that year un til May 1944. But during that ; . war-struck year the Tar Heel went weekly. By the time Mrs.: Muriel t Richter of Brooklyn, N. Y. was made the coed edi tor in July 1944 the paper had gone on a bi-weekly basis so remained until she had left the campus in October 1944. Miss Harden ran as indepen dent candidate in the spring of 1951 with the campaign pro mise to make the then-five day paper1 ; into , the "Daily" Tar Heel once again. Draft Tests Students who haven't already taken college qualification tests A professional graduate program leading to -the degree of Master of Business Administration has been established here. This announcement was made today by Dean W. W. Pierson of the Graduate School and Dean Thomas H. Carroll-of the School of Business Administration. The new program, they said, is designed to meet the needs later executive careers, Dean Car roll pointed out. The program will also serve college graduates who have already begun their business careers and who perceive the value of additional instruction as preparation for increased admin istrative responsibilty," he added. Dean Pierson said that the MjS. degree program in Business Ad ministration offered for" many years by the University will be continued, primarily for gradu ate students who aspire to teach ing, business and governmental research, and staff positions in business firms sueh.as those held by statisticians. " The new program calls for a full academic year of graduate work beyond the so-called "core" of basic business subjects. A mini mum of one academic year will be required for graduates of an ac credited undergraduate school of business while other students will be required to take a maximum of two academic years. The M.B.A. curriculum. Dear Carroll said,insures that each stu dent will develop an understand ing of each of the several fiine- -tional areas of business ao!minis- tration, adding that some speciali zation will be available in one or more areas,- ' - The entire ; curriculum will stress the human aspects of ad ministration, he said. "Instruction in sources of busi ness information and the prepara tion of a number of effective bus iness reports will also be required foy. all M.B.A. candidates," ha said. "As in some other profes sional graduate programs in busi ness, these requirements will r place the usual master's thesii and the formal foreign language requirement."; : pro-"The economic, political and social forces of our time create ever in creasing demands upon all busi ness executives for mature and far-sighted policy decisions. This presents a challenge to a most tiny, rooms were used for school of business administration, he said, "to offer a professional business program of truly high caliber to interested college grad uates who have not majored in business administration during their undergraduate years.
