at the same time he understood
three trends "that make it al

The trends were:

2. Tendency to take cases direct

student courts. '
3. The- lagging effectiveness of
student initiative in the adminis

MUS1CALIST SAXON'S VOICE:
By MARY ACKERMAN
Coloratura soprano Jan Saxon,
a UNC student singer and ac
tress, did credit to herself and
her University Sunday night with
a fine performance. Accompani
ed by her instructor Walter
Golde, Miss Saxon performed the
fourth Petite Musicale of the fall
in the main lounge of Graham
Miss Saxon's voice was beauti
fully pure in tone and sweetly
expressive. Delicate, sensitive
and warm, her singing captured
the attention and appreciative
sympathy of her audience.
The singer's .performance
of two Loewe selections is es
pecially notable. The soprano
caught the fiery spirit and gaiety
of the "Canzonetta" and "Nie
mand Hat's Gesehen," winning
bursts of applause from her en
In a selection from Donizette's
"Don Fasquale," Miss Saxon dis
played professional technique
and skill. Combining a depth of
feeling with accurate precision,
she executed the high treble ca
denzas and octave trills with me

Ihe coloratura soprano gave her

"confusion as to jurisdiction" in
student courtsrwhich, he said, "may
give rise to confusion about where
initiative should lie." N
. Backng up his outline of recent
student court trends, Weaver said
no case was appealed to the facul
ty for 15 years, and hat about as
many have been appealed in the
last two or three years as were
in the first 25 or 30 years.
Several student leaders suggest
ed the need, for more meetings to
discuss the problem.

RELIGION IN DI , t " -
"Resolved that organized reli
gion is a form of tyranny over the
mind of man" will be the resolu
tion for debate jri th eDialectic
Senate tonight. -
The group will meet at 8 o'clock
on the third floor of New West.
Proponents of the bill are ex
pected to argue that most of the
present religions do not serve the
true religious nature of man, while
opponents are expected to argue
that the present forms of religion,
though not perfect, are man's best
hope for saving the world.
Recalled by generous applause
for two encores, Miss Saxon sang
"A Heart That's Free" and a se
lection of Granados.
As a whole the program did
not seem chosen to effectively
display the singer's technique
and ability. The latter half, in
cluding selections by Hahn, Liszt,
and Saint-Saems, presented more
opportunity for a variety of dra
matic expression at which Miss
Saxon is particularly adept.
Though flexible in expression
and well-trained, Miss Saxon's
voice lacks volume and fullness.
Her performance was nicely ad
equate for the main lounge of
GM. She possesses an informal
friendliness that transmitted it
self successfully to' the compact
Miss Saxon has been studying
under Dr. Walter Golde of the
UNC Music Dept. for the past
three years and will conclude
her courses in June, 1956. Before
coming to UNC, she attended
the University, of Michigan and
changed her major from music
to dramatic arts.
"I want to go into opera," Miss
Saxon says, "Though I loVe V
sing anything, from pops to
classical." According to the sing
er, this was the second formal
concert she has ever given.
Last year at UNC, Miss Saxon
took roles in the Music Dept.
productions of the "Marriage of
Figaro" and "The Telephone."

The airport was built in 1511
on around 600 acres of land,
most of which was donated by
the late Horace Williams, profes

by the Work Projects Adminis

around 22 planes were housed
on the field, many of which were
used in training programs here
and at Duke University.
No matter how much air travel

years, the University airport is
