The Summer School Chorus will
present a concert of choral music in
Hill Hall tonight at 8 p.m. under the
joint sponsorship of the Department
of Music and the Summer Activities
Gene Strassler, graduate student
from Apollo, Pennsylvania, is di
recting the chorus, composed of both
faculty and students.
Soloists will include Mrs. Martha
Fouse, Chapel Hill secretary and
housewife; Miss Roberta Dixon of
Raleigh, UNC music students and
Everett Hall, UNC professor of .phi
losophy. Mrs. Fouse had leading roles in
campus musical productions during
the past year "The Marriage of
Figaro" and "Show Boat." Miss Dix

addition to serving as president of the

Mr. Hall has been active in choral
work for many years, singing with
the Stanford University Chapel Choir

poser, Ralph Vaughan-Williams.
Director Strassler explained that
the composition, written in 1922, has
had few performances in this country,
"a fact which in no way reflects upon
its musical merit."
The chorus will also present a
polyphonic setting of "Psalm 65" by
the French Huguenot composer,
Claude Goudimel. A small choir will
perform "Five Songs on Old Texts"
by Paul Hindemith, a teacher of com

dormitories. It was announced that

Council offense which could lead to
a convicted student's expulsion from
the University. Harrington urged
that all dormitory residents keep
their doors locked when they leave
their rooms in order to prevent any
repetition of the thefts.
Also discussed at the meeting wrere
proposed dormitory parties. Several
dorm Presidents said that they hoped
to have parties in the near future

to chip in to help pay for them. Also
plans were made to have an I. D. C.
Watermelon Party in August if funds
could be procured. This event would
