Students learned about the se
mester system in capsule form yes
terday by meeting with their deans
throughout the campus.
A guaranteed Spring vacation
(next year's will be five days),
greater flexibility in afternoon
classes and an effort to make a
"literal translation" of the present
system in regard to hours and
courses," were mentioned as some
of the major points of the semes
ter system, by Dean Clifford P.
Lyons of the Arts and Sciences
Though not speaking for all
schools and divisions in the Uni
versity, Lyons gave a view of what
will be going on come September.
"We will attempt to make at lit
eral translation of what you have
now," he told over 800 students
in Memorial Hall yesterday. In!
converting irom tne quarter to tne
semester system, adjustments as
"to hours and courses will be made
-to conform as nearly as possible
to the present setup.
Lyons expects that a schedule
for both semesters will be avail
able by April 15. Preregistration
should begin later in that month,
or in the early part of May.
Afternoon classes will be much
more flexible than before in the
sense that they meet only three
days a week, he commented. He
illustrated this point by noting'that
students who missed an important
course because of drill or labora
tory would be able to take the
course under the semester system.
Those who expect to graduate
in March, 1954 should be able
to finish in January of that year
by means of the semester system.
"We will make a strong effort
to graduate everyone according to
their present plans. We will try
to avoid making , students study
here three months longer than
they planned to," he said.
Students who plan to graauate
in December can either double up
in Summer School (which Is not
affected by the Trustee order)
this academic year or can go the
extra month through January. If
they continue through January,
they can take extra courses, Lyons
Under the new system, classes
are held three times a week on a
five courses allowed each semes
ter. For the first year in operation,
the plan will provide students with
more electives than now possible.
Lyons said that efforts will be
made to give a "balanced distri
bution" of classes both as to total
courses and as to major courses.
He indicated that the Arts and
Sciences College is spending time
on how to improve the advisory
system. "A great deal of thought
and study will be given to the
overall advisory system," he point
ed out. The Daily Tar Heel and
student government have long crit
icized the advisory setup, particu
larly in the General College.
The YMCA yesterday released
a list of lost and found articles
being held in the Y for owners
Included in the list: one blue
cardigan, a red velvet hat, brown
shoulder bag, silver evening bag,
black velvet evening bag, white
linen bag, small brown bag.

Helping approximately 600

The Semper Fidelis Society
will sponsor a drive next week to
collect clothing for the Pohang
Orphanage in South Korea.
. Clothing baskets will be placed
in Fowler's Food Store, the Glen

Those who do not wish to carry
the clothing to the baskets are
