The school work ami supervised study was explained and Mr. Carver told of the need of an electric bell to sound, the gong promptiy for the classes and study periods. With supervised study under the teachers who tach the subject?, ft is not necessary to d- much home work and the results obtained are much bet ter.

Mr. Carver asked the co operation of the club in obtaining the electric bell system and during the business session 'coming later it was voted to set aside a certain amount for this cause. The high school .'will also raise funds and the parent-teacher association is assisting. Mr. 'Schubert of the community ser vice bureau gave the origin of his or ganzation rhich is a community ser-, vice under a peace time committee.

Inci dentally the boys gave their genial host a few songs and cheers that must have reminded him of olden davs on the side lines. Yackety-yack was the only yell not offered. . At the suggestion of Judge. E. B. dine the association voted unanimous ly to create a scholarship' fund to loan to needy and worthy young men who desire to attend , the University and Judge Oliue. Roy Abernethy and John Aiken were named a committee to york out the details of the plan. "During the discussion, Judge Cline, Dr. R. L. Fritz and others emphasized the point that North Carolina's wonderful prog ress was due in large measure to the native stock which had worked togeth er with the miinimum of friction for the development of the state, and the necessity for keeping as many of the young men and women at home was al so emphasized. Every effort should b made by North Carolinians to give young men and women opportunities to go from high school to the various colleges. In welcoming the alumni, Mr. Shu ford referred to the remarkable prog ress of North Carolina and asserted that wherever one went east, north or west the old state was praised for its aggressiveness. He wanted to see this material prosperity pushed along, but at the same time the educational and spiritual sides should not be ov erlooked. An association of this kind, Mr. Shirford said, ought to aid in ev ery way possible. Inasmuch as prominent physicians and surgeons hael declared that it would be better not to divide a col lege of medicine into two parts, the association went, on record as favor ing Chapel Hill as the site for the proposed college and hospital as"" a memorial -to the soldiers. Dr. R." II. Rowe, himself a physioian, thought that the entire four years should be given at the same place. 1 On motion of Roy Abernethy, the University Glee; Club will be invited to appear in the auditorium about the middle" of November and it was the sense of the meeting that the North Carolina Play Makers be invited to appear here next spring.
