In Joint Meeting
In a meeting held yesterday in
the Student Union, university and
city officials discussed problems
relating the forthcoming State
Basketball Tournament which is
to be held in McArthur court next
month. Entertainment for the
high-school students was first on
the agenda, and it was planned
that dances should be held in the
Student Union every night of the
week while the tournament lasts.
Although the tournament is held
during the week of final exams
for winter term, housing for the
visiting students has been taken
care of by the local business men.
Students can either reside in hotels
in the surrounding areas or in
private homes. No comment W'as
made about staying in fraternities
or sororities during the week.
Tourney Benefits School
Ray Hawk, dean of men, stated
that the tournament was a benefit
to the school as well as the city,
because high-school students were
brought into contact with the town
and university surroundings. In
this way, he continued, high-school
students could gain first hand in
formation about the university and
the courses of study which are
offered, besides becoming acquain
ted with fraternities and sororities.
Howard Lemons, athletic busi
ness manager, stated that the uni
versity was able to come in con

who are now playing high-school
ball, and thus induce them to at
