The 80-year-old poet is well
known to Chapel Hill audiences,
having spoken here a number of
times in the past.
A. native of San Francisco,
Frost grew up in New England
where he attended Dartmouth
and Harvard Universities. His
career has been widely varied.
He farmed, taught English,
worked as a newspaperman, and
although he wrote poetry, none
of it was printed until he moved
to England in 1912.
His first volume, A Boy's Will,
was published and warmly
praised in England. A year
later he wrote the now famous
North of Boston.

said Jack Stevens, co-chairman of

Activities begin at 8 p.m. in
Memorial Hall, said Stevens. "We
are expecting a lot of originality

added. The winner of th trophy

A survey of fraternities yester
day showed some hard at work on
stunts and skits. The theme of
the Chi Phi skit is "not having
a theme," according to Jack Weil.
"'The scene is a meeting to discuss,

The KAs are planning a pan

The Sig Eps are satirizing the
movie "The Wild One" and the
TEPs are doing the same for the
Oscar awards for movies.
The Zetes were reluctant to
give out any information about
their skit. After much hemming
and hawing, a spokesman for the
pledge tfiass said the skit had
something to do with a Sunday
afternoon on campus.

the fact that the Business Ad

According to the statement, he
favors the same procedure in the
other branches of the University
as a substitute for the prevailing
practice of requiring all dean's
list students to have grades of
B or above.
"I think any person with an
overall B average has shown his
acceptance of academic responsi

the privileges granted by being
on the dean's list," said McCurry.
"It is unfair to unnecessarily
