Broken . down- into the various
undergraduate schools, the list
reads as follows:

a General College total of 721.

Schools of Nursing and Pental

1,458. Tlie total last year was 668.
In the Graduate School there is
a total of 294, Public Health 58,
Medical School 128, Law School

The registration by residence is
as follows: There are 821 automo

dormitories, 273 by those in fra

other communities have registered

the outskirts of town a total of 96.
Jefferies urged all students who
have registered their cars but who
have not applied registration stick
ers on the windshield to do so for
their own benefit. Policemen, when
writing out tickets, have no way
of knowing whether the cars are
registered or not except by the
tickets, he said.

efforts are musicals in which stu

"About seven years ago, Sound
and Fury grew silent, dying an
untimely death at the accusation,
'risque,' " said Miss Sink. "Then,
last season, under the ; guiding
hands of several interested stud
ents, the organization returned
from the . dead, first as part of
GMAB's Dance Committee, which
nearly suffered its own death
under the added money strain,"
she explained. -

The extraordinary fact that cer
tain movements of the human
body work better after removal
of one hemisphere of the brain
was explained here last night by
Dr. Derek E. Denny-Brown, world
famous neurologist, in the fourth
annual Bryson Lectures at N. C.
Memorial Hospital. .
In recent years epileptics and
other patients with severe damage
to portions of the brain have re
covered better use of limbs after
entire removal of one side of the
brain. Such operations have been

said his objection was in calling the

. According to Fowler, the , new
program would ' be under a com

not want ' another court." He em
phasized the plan is similar to the
one currently in effect at 'N. C
State College in Raleigh.
The solution of the campus
parking problem by denying cars
to freshmen is not the one he
wishes, said Fowler. He said this
might bring "evils" which could
end in hazing and beany caps.
"That is why," said Fowler, "I am
reluctant to take this course."
Fowler said the committee, un
der the chairmanship of Layton
McCurdy, has considered . the
freshman restriction plan, but de
clared freshmen's cars would be
limited only if no other means of
solving the problem were seen. He
added that if such a step could
not be avoided, the restriction
