A special committee to select a new president for the University gave a report saying it was hampered by a low salary for the presidency. Concerning the automobile situation, the report said "The most annoying matter affecting student life, and indeed, the entire campus and community, was that of the increasing number of automobiles. "... The problem is one rather of traffic than of the effect of automobiles upon student morale and scholastic standing. Except in iso-laed instances, whether or not a student possesses a car does not seem to affect his college career.

PLAYMAKERS JUDY BROWN AND JAMES SECHREST j ... they're leads in "Seventeen," opening Friday 'By HAL H. HENDERSON Lead actor and actress in UNC Carolina Playmakers' musical comedy production, "Seventeen," are James Sechrest, a junior, of Thomasville, and Miss Judy' Brown, a sbphomore, of Chapel Hill. - i . , The play, slated for March 2, 3 and 4 at 8:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall, will be under the directi6n of Thomas Patterson, assistant director of the Playmakers. Fos- ter Fitz-Simmons, also of the Playmakers staff, is choreographer. June Eschweiler, graduate assistant in the Dept. of Dramatic Art, is stage manager- . Sechrest, who was a chorus member in the last two annual musical productions, "Kiss Me Kate in' 1954-and "Show Boat" in 1955, said "Seventeen" will v "definitely be the ibest of the thre shows." Sechrest will also be remembered for his role of Jimmy Curry, the younger brother, in the , Playmakers' production of "The ; Rainmaker" last fall. Sechrest plays in "Seventeen" the part of Willie Baxter, the adolescent who is hopelessly and dreamily in love, to whom everything, both serious and light-hearted, is important enough to end the world any minute. Sechrest will participate with the chorus in such numbers as "This Was Just Another Day," "How Do You Do, Miss Pratt?" "I Can Get Married Today," and "The Old Town Clock.' Miss Judy Brown, who plans "to become a playwright, will play the part of Willie's infatuation, Miss Lola Pratt. Lola is a lovely, flirtatious blonde with-a i fascinating "lithp." Though unable to pronounce some of her consonants, she is quite able to collect fraternity pins with ease and rapidity and to evoke fitful antics of jealousy among the local gals of Indianapolis when she comes to town one hot summer day to visit and stays a tad bit longer than expected. Among these alluring charms of Lola's are a very pleasingly toothy smile and a well-placed giggle' with her ingratiating, "Es, indeedy!" - Miss Brown will be remembered -tfor her portrayal of the woman-"of-the-streets in "Even the Gods" produced last semester by the Playmakers. In the etiology of Willie's "Seventeen" :. love-sickness, Judy will sing several duets (See SEVENTEEN, page 4,) . During 1955 she was director of the Albany Medical Center. CHASE Dr. Chase, who will begin teaching here next September, formerly taught at New Hanover High School, Wilmington, and at Wilmington College. He is currently assistant professor, University of Virginia, and acting director of the summer session there. A native of Eureka, N. C, he holds his bachelor's and master's degrees from UNC and completed his doctorate at University of Virginia in 1954.

Di Debates Soil Bank Proposal President Eisenhower's Soil Bank program, which will soon come before Congress, will be debated tonight by the Dialectic Senate. A controversial answer to the current farm problem, the SoQ Bank proposal was recently m?de by the Chief Executive. Proponents of the bill in debate tonight are expected to argue that the plan works at the production level and will reduce the large surplus now being bought by the government. The plan encourages more soil fertility and conservation, proponents will say. On the other hand, those opposing the plan are expected to argue that the Soil Bank will not raise the farmer's share of the national income, and that increased production per acre will the plan to fail. The Di meets every Tuesday at 8 p.m. on tne tnird lloor of New East. Guests are welcome and encouraged to participate in debate, Di officials said.
