Moves To Cut Down Mortality In Scholarship Faculty Group Advisory System to Be Used This Year for the First Time; Each First-Year Student Will Get Individual Attention; Group of Advisors Named By R. W. MADRY Chapel Hill, Aug. 10 — I The relatively hgih scholastic mortality rate of freshmen has long been a matter of keep concern among college officials everywhere. Mar/ of the first-year men some how seem to have difficulty in get ting their bearings. In some cases it is because they go to college poorly prepared. In other instances it is be cause they fail to apply themselves with alacrity and zest. , CHAPTER Z 9 BLATR WAS himself in an instant, his mind working fast . . . his pulse leaping as he recalled being struck in the head. He had been struck, when he went out of the swinging door, into another room. As soon as he was out of the living room. Struck on the" head. He was losing blcod rapidly. He was tied up so he couldn’t get away! But who had struck him? He had seen no one. He could not even visualize the room into which he had walked after he had left the living room. His assailant must have been waiting for him outside the door. . . . Janet was still in his mind as he had left the room. He was thinking •mt nothing else .. . Janet. But who Jkad struck him In the head? Miss •Boisevain, Janet and Nita were all in the living room. He had no idea how long he had been unconscious. Hours perhaps, because it was one o’clock when he entered the big house for dinner. One o’clock, and now it was dark Hours, probably had passed since he had been struck. Hours beeahse it was night now. . . . He was alone some place. With his lingers he felt the floor. It was of rough board, slivery and crude. He could make* out no windows, nothing in the place where he lay. j Did Janet know about this? He decided she could not know! What might she have gone through if he had had such treatment! He should have taken a posse up to the house. Instead of coming alone. He might ibe useless now ... he could not iinove, he could see nothing, j His eyes tried to peer through the jdarkness but they saw nothing. It 'was as if he were blind! ! Not a sound could he hear, not (even the song of a cricket. . . . ! Again he tried to move his hands, 'tajßFf they were tied firmly against his He could feel the rope with fils fingers. It was strong, heavy [rope. Whoever had tied him up had made a good job of it. ... f ’. ; I. McClure had said there were*only two people in the house. Three now that Janet was there. Np, he was wrong. McClure had taken up a girl who had never dome back,: a girl who was to have been Miss Bolsevain’s companion. That made fqtir in the bouse, If that first girl waS still there. McClure did not even know her name, or where she had dorne from. : Who could have struck him such a-blow? ? ,t Blair was feeling more like him self, except that he w'as still weak, jprobably from loss of blood. His bead seemed to be splitting wide ppen. i*i He thought he heard A slight noise jn the distance, the sound of a door opening, perhaps. Yek, there were footsteps coming near, soft ones, as if the person had rubber soles on his afccesi Someone was pear, in the At jO/ rate the college fathers have long since been aware that too many of their matriculates flunk out the first year, either not passing enough work to be readmitted or becoming so discouraged they don’t care to make a try for the sophomore climb. A number of institutions through out the country have been trying to do something to remedy the situation. The University of North Carolina is one of these. At Chapel Hill the freshmen were room, If it was a room where he was. He could hear the intake of breath, but he could see nothing. Perhaps this person would stumble over him! Blair said not a word. But his eyes were wide open, looking Into the darkness. His visitor was standing above him now. He could feel a presence and hear the other’s breathing plainly. But he could see nothing, the dark ness was so intense. “Who are you?” he finally asked. His voice sounded weak, a voice he hardly recognized as his own. Yet it had come from his lips. There was no answer to his ques tion. “Who are you?” he repeated, this time a little stronger. He felt a cruel kick at his knee, and then heard soft footsteps away from him. The door closed . . . sil ence as it had been before. Someone had come and gone. And the someone had kicked him vicious ly. His knee pained him where the blow had fallen. This must be his assailant come to see how he was! Yet this person had not seemed to stumble in the darkness . . . who ever it was, he or she knew the place well. Was it a woman? Blair thought of the two big wom en in the house. Nita and Miss Boise vain. Either of them could have struck that blow. Both of them, though, had been in the living room when the blow had been struck. He had a faint feeling that the blow had come from the front . . . yes. the front of his head pained the most. That meant that his assailant had been in the room he had entered. If the blow had come from behind, the back of his head would pairt more. No, the blow had come in the front. ... Miss Boisevain, he remembered, was sitting in her big chair by the fireplace. She could hardly have jumped up and reached the other room in time to hit him. Nita had been standing with a tray in her hajids near the table. She would have had to put down the tray . . . no, neither Nita nor Miss Boisevain could have struck that sudden blow! Whoever had hit him, was waiting for him in that other room. There must be someone else in the house! McClure, too, had said the other girl he took up there, was a little thing. That blow had taken strength, and a lot of it. Funny . . , jj; a mysterious visitor had not said a word! * * * All evening Janet remained in the living room at Miss Boisevain’s side. Now and then, she would walk to the front window and look out, to see if Blair Rodman’s car still stood there. Each time she went, she made It out in the darkness, beside the Porch. Rajah had gone out an hour after Nita had brought tea and long ago provided with faculty and student advisers upon their arrival. These men worked with the deans in the process of helping the newcom ers getting adapted to their new en vironment. The plan admittedly has achieved excellent rsults. But Prsident Frank Graham and Dean Bob House and their advisers have felt that the plan could be en larged upon and made considerably more effective. And so a new plan is going to be put into effect at Chapel Hill for the freshmen this fall. Dean A. B Hobbs thinks it is one of the best features of the new curriculum set-up that is being introduced. Advisory-Guidance Urogram The new plan might be called an advisory-guidance program. Headed by Prof. Corydan P. Spruill, a com mittee of half a dozen prominent young faculty men have been appoint ed by President Graham to make it their special business to see that every single freshman ha's the help ful attention of some member of their group. The plan may also be ex tended to sophomores as well. This means that each newcomer, when he reaches Chapel Hill this fall, wiil be assigned to one of these six professors, who will make it a special point to keep in close touch with the freshman throughout his freshman year, at least to the end the faculty man may extend to the newcomer advice and guidance when and where it may be needed. These advisors will have offices ar.d keep regular hours for consulta tion periods. When it is reported by a dean, for instance, that a student is falling down on his work one of these advisors will get in touch with the particular student and make every effort to bolster him up. Armed with information obtained from the boy’s prep or high school record, as wel las data on his extreme-curricular as well as classroom activities here, the faculty advisor will sit down and have a heart-to-heart chat with the youngster and see what can be done to straighten out his difficulties. No Coddling Planned All this is not to be taken to mean that the University has departed from its traditional ideal of instilling itr students the spirit of self-reliance. The new plan does not mean that an attempt will be made to regiment or coddle the undergraduates. The plan will be administered by a Faculty Advisory Group composed of Professor Spruill, Chairman, and Profs. M. A. Hill, Jr., Ernest L. Mackie, Harry K. Russell, H. R. Totten and W. L. Wiley. These ad visors will at all times have the close cooperation of the offices of Dr. A. W. Hobbs, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and Dr. Francis F. Bradshaw, Dean of Students. The problem of scholastic mortal ity is also to be attacked from anoth er angle this year. This “house plan” so sucessful at Yale and Harvard, which was tried here last year for the first with one dormitory, is to be extended to include four dormitories, Ayeock, Graham, Lewis and Everett. cakes in . . . called by the whistle she was beginning to fear, and yex welcome because every time she heard it, Rajah hurried away, out of her sight.

At hour intervals she gave the sick woman the white powder Nita had set out. It was 10 by the banjo clock when Miss Boisevain's eyes closed and she fell asleep. Janet knew she was sleeping from the regularity of her breathing and the slight snores .'hut escaped her lips now and then. The girl looked down at her lying in her improvised bed. her grayish red hair falling all over her pillow, hair thick and coarse and long. She had long since retracted her opinion that Miss Boisevain was mad. She was not. It was the house . . . there was really some thing queer about it, something that made Miss Boisevain fear it; she who was so strong in mind and yet not in body; something that made Nita fear it. too.

These professors will administer a new' plan through which it hopes to Two of these dormitories will be re served for freshmen only, while rooms in the other two will be available to students of all classes. A prmoinent undergraduate, who has demonstrated ability and leader ship on the campus, will be placed in each dormitory, and his advice and assistance will be available at all times. University officials expect this plan to result in a great improve ment in dormitory life. Folks On Relief Don’t Want to Work, Is Belief (Continued from Page One.) agreed, do not understand that their only hope and chance of obtaining relief is by registering with the re employment service and then by get ting WPA jobs. As a result, they evi_ dently believe that if hey just sit tight and do nothing, some relief agency will continue t 0 take care of them. But there is a vast number of for mer relief clients who are not regis tering because they do not like the idea of having to work regularly sor the next ten months, a good many in close touch with the situation agree. Many of these would rather take their chances An piclttng up odd jobs for a few days at the time or of getting jobs with private employers than to register with the NRS and be in line for WPA jobs which they would haye to work at steadily. “The fact of the matter is that there are literally thousands of peo ple now on relief and who have been on relief since it started, who ac tually do not need this relief but who have accepted it as long as it did not mean that they had to put out much work,” an official connected with one of these government agencies said here today. “As long as they could get some relief money by working only a few hours a day a few days a week, they were willing to put out that much effort. But now that they are going to have to work 40 hours a week, month after month, and get theirTwages by the month, many aro deciding that the ‘relief’ they will get isn't worth the effort and laibor neces sary to get it. As a result a lot of for mer relief clients are either not go ing to register at all and take their chances on getting along some way, I Final Notice I I To City Tax-Payers I All property on which 1934 City Taxes have not been paid will be advertised for ■ sale on— I MONDAY, I I AUGUST 12, 1935 I AND SOLD ON THE 2ND MONDAY IN SEPTEMBER Those who have not paid are urged to do so at once and save additional cost of H selling.

While none of the officials of the Works Progress Administration are willing to be quoted one of Ihe high officials in the North Carolina WPA made the statement a few days ago that he did not expect to get more than 50.000 persons from lire former relief rolls who are really willing and anxious to work on WPA projects in the State, from among the nearly 200- 000 supposedly employable persons who have been on relief in the State for the past two years. Doubt was also expressed as to how many of ! these would stick on WPA jobs for the balance of the year. Mrs. Evans, of the Reemployment Service, is convinced, however, that the principal reason for the light re gistration of former relief cases so fa: is their lack of information and their failure to understand the new rules and regulations. As soon as they rea lize that they must register in cider to get WPA jobs and that all relief will be cut off from those who do not register or accept WPA jons Mrs Evans believes that a majority of the former relief clients will registei “It must be remembered that most of these pebple on relief never see a newspaper, are of limited mentality and that they do not yet realize that any changes are being made in 'he relief procedure,” Mrs Evans said “But we believe that most of these people are anxious an® willing to work and thtfft evntually they will re gister for WPA work and will be glad to get these jobs.” But thorn are many otheis who are sti' l rltepiical 1849—Horace Fletchei noted Ame rican lecturer and wiitev on tion. born at Lawrence, Mass.
