k At Phi Meet
By JERRY CUTHRELL
In his inaugural speech to the
Philanthropic Literary Society last .
night, Speaker John Curtis said, ;"
This year the Phi has made a de
finite and certain improvement in
itself." He went on to note the
almost doubled membership and
the great improvement in the ?
writing and character of the bills
which have been discussed.
"The campus is becoming more 1
aware of the society as a means of
free student self expression," he
said. . i'

Following the address by speak

gave an informal talk in which he
said, "There seems to be a resur
geance of a positive attitude of
determining and contriving what
is right." He indicated that the
progress made by the Phi this year
was part of the resurgeance.
Dr. Purks stressed strongly the
importance of student-faculty re
lationships. He said, "the pay-off
points in higher education are
the . teacher before hia student,
the student before his books, the
scientist in his study and labora
tory . . . ." He maintained that
educational institutions should
function on those- points and in

how at times they "create a

be presented under the auspices
of the Chapel Hill Concert Series,

sented here includes 10 numbers

Headed by young stars Teresa
and Luisillo, who have visited Ma
drid, London, Paris, Milan and
Buenos Aires, as weir as cities
throughout the United States dur
ing their first tour here last year,
the group, according to a press

Spain's colorful gypsies with the
graceful, ethereally-delicate tern
poes of the Castillians."
Included in the company are
Maria Vivo, comedienne dancer
singer; El Nino de Almaden, Fla
menco singer known for his re
cordings and films; Jose Romero
