The Board of Directors of Delta
Upsilon, national social fraternity,
has granted a charter to the Delta
fraternity at UNC.
The fraternity has been locally
operated for the past three years.
During that time it has been a col
ony, a group which has petitioned
and is waiting for its charter.
In its 118 year history, Delta Up
slion has been conseryative in the
admission of new chapters requir
ing a local petitioning group to be
of great strength. This policy has
resulted in onl four chapters go
ing inactive over the 118 years. No
other fraternity has a comparable
record, according to Delta officials.
The 118th anual convention of
the fraternity gave the power to
grant a charter to the UNC peti
tioning society to the board of dir
ectors. H. Norris Harrison, national
chairman of petitioning societies
from Centreville, Md., conducted of
ficial inspections of the group last
August and again in January.
Ex-U.S. President James A. Gar
field, Vice-President Charles Daw
es and Supreme Court Chief Jus
tice Charles Evans Hughes have all
served as national presidents of
Delta Upsilon. Other national lead
ers among the DU ranks include Dr.
James Conant, Edgar Bergen,
Herbert BrownelL Senator Paul
H. Douglas, Harry Emerson
Fosdick, Joyce Kilmer and Sen. Ar
thur H. Vandenberg.
When the peltas are installed,
they will become the 76th Chapter
of Delta Upsilon and the first in
North Carolina. Plans are now be
ing completed for the installation
which will take place on April 18th.
Officers of the local Delta Fra
ternity are Herman H. Husbands,
president; Jim Finch, vice-president;
James L. Rollins, recording
secretary; Neal Harrington, cor
responding secretary; Steve Moss,
social chairman; Bob Barden, in

A special feature of the program
will be the synagacgal cantillation
of Cantor Aaron Earl Miller. From
most ancient times, worship serv
ices have been chanted, and many
of the earliest musical forms have
come down to modern times in pure
form. Cantor Miller will illustrate
how readings from the Pentateuch
and from other writings are chant
ed today, and how the traditional
tunes attempted to describe both
the content of a book and the sea
son during which it is read.
In addition he will sing a se
lection from the Sabbath prayer
book, with the assistance of a chor

pledged to support his opponent,
"No election is won easily," de

The UP vice-presidential pick
commented on student apathy, cit

party politics and campaigning.
The solution to the problem of
apathy, he said, is a platform "with
i meat in it." He added he thought
the party had such a platform.
Gross, who had hinted some
weeks ago that he was very much
interested in the post, said he
thought the vice-president was
"more than just the speaker of leg

to do the campus a service," said

President Gray asked the ques
tion of the mission of the university
yesterday and called on a group of
professors to "help in defining, iso
lating, meeting the problems . . .
of higher education."
"I'm asking you ... to help in
ventory . . . the university," Gray
said as he addressed the opening
assembly of the first Conference
on the State of the University. Gray
added that he hoped the conference
would-be an annual affair.
Speaking in Carroll Hall, hand
some; new central building of the
Business Administration School,
Gray concentrated his talk on a
"point of departure" for the con
ference which has brought together
here nearly 20 professors from
Woman's College, State College as
well as Chapel Hill. Gray defined
this point as "asking the question
of whether we cannot . . . find a
common purpose and identify a
Gray said he originally planned
to talk on "The State of the Uni
versity" but would entitle his talk
"Some Observations on a Univers
ity." Modesty, "not wholly false,"
laziness and insufficient knowledge
of the subject for formal prepara
tion made him switch topics, the
Consolidated University president
"My spirit of participation with
you is really one of asking rather
than telling," he told his audience.
Gray said there must not be too
much "breast beating" and pride
in previous achievements but that
we must "look to the heritage of
the past for motivations, momen
tum and momentous challenge."
"I am prepared to acknowledge
we live in an age of technology,"
he said with a grin, then added that
his 12-year-old son reproached him
for not knowing that flying saucers
really exist because the magazine
Boy's Life says so.
"Must not university help us to
maintain social and moral purpose
in this technical age?" the presi
dent asked. Indeed it must, ac
cording to Gray, who said the uni
versity must forge ahead forceful
ly and "guide from within its own
change while adjusting to outside
Gray urged the professors go to
into the conference seminars "with
out inhibition . . . each of you par
ticipating frankly, fully and criti
cally where you are so motivated."
In conclusion he said that he did
not expect the conference to "solve
everything . . . There will be plen
ty of time in years to come to
solve some of the problems we
face ... I have high hopes; I think
we have accomplished much by sim
ply getting together."
Dr. "Logan Wilson, recent aca
demic provost here and now presi
dent of the University of Texas,
sent a letter which was read by
Chairman Howard Odum.
Dr. Wilson said in part: "(The
conference is) one which very pro
fitably might be carried on through
out the country ... In my opinion
it is high time that universities, es
pecially state universities, redefine
their fundamental objectives."
