Founders Day Program Commences Today
Guilford Choir Selected To Sing
Christmas Music for Planetarium
Technicians Come Here
To Make Recordings
For those who attend the Christ
mas program at the Planetarium
in Chapel Hill, there should be a
particular interest in store this
year. The Guilford A Cappella
Choir has been invited to record
the music to be used in connec
tion with this program beginning
November 27 and lasting through
Christmas. Men from the More
head Planetarium will come to
this campus and make these re
cordings next Friday.
"The choir and Mr. Charles Un
derwood, the director, are to be
congratulated for this high honor
bestowed on them and on the col
lege," an administrative source
According to reports, the Plane
tarium directors looked "all over
this state and surrounding ones,
and picked the Guilford Choir from
among all the others" to do the

Who's Who in American Universi

Those named are Ab Alexander,

Samuel Levering, of Mt. Airy,
chairman of the Peace Board of

last Friday told the student assem

can meet three conditions: brother
hood and good will, self interest
on the side of peace, and tolerable
conditions for the people of the
The first prerequisite to peace
is disarmament, with a world FBI
to see that it is effective, he said.
Other essentials, he continued, are
a U. N. able to disarm disputants
and take them before a disinterest
ed court for judgment. In order
to do this, nations must be willing
to disarm and submit to an inter
national court and police force.
"This police force must work
against individuals." he said. "It
must hit while the trouble is small."
To send an army against an ag
gressor nation after a war has start
ed is self-defeating, Levering con
This, he said, is the fundamental
fault of the League of Nations and
the U. N. They have no police; can
not act until war has struck. This
amounts to a collective security
agreement, not government, the
Levering believes the U. S. should
advocate this before the U. N., and
offer to give up a part of its sove
reignty if others will do the same.
Levering emphasized that he does
not adovcate a complete delegation
of sovereignty, but only in the re
spect of the settling of disputes by
individual armed might. This is
only common sense, he said, since
no one can win an atomic war.

Asks No Less
Nationally-known evangelist Bil
ly Graham told an audience of
students, faculty, and community
people in Memorial Hall, Wednes
day, October 31, that education to
day is "kicking out God" in favor
of the pursuit of intellectualism,
without regard to God.
Continuing his theme, he stated
that not too many years ago, there
was only one divorce to every 30
marriages, whereas last year there
was one divorce for every four mar
riages. He continued that this is
evidence that the "basic and most
important unit of any society, the
family, is breaking. Therefore, the
Graham then explained that Com
munism is a "religion" that has
the mind, body, and even the soul
of young people. "Meanwhile, we
have departed from our devotion,"
he said. "We have nothing. We're
up against a people out to tear up
God. They're out to throw Him
completely out. . . . But we have
something that they don't have,"
he continued; "the trouble is, we
don't use it."
The noted evangelist then sug
gested that "Jesus demands no less
than Communism: both demand
control of the eyes, mind, ears,
tongue, hands, our every intellec
tual process." He concluded, "Jesus'
side is going to be the winning side,
sooner or later, and it must start
with young people."
President Milner introduced Rev.
Mr. Graham, stating that his talk
was arranged early in the fall.

Last Saturday, Nov. 3, in Me
morial Hall students and college
friends saw the faculty display their
talents in what turned out to be
a very take-off on the students and
student life. The event was spon
sored by the Student Christian As

for the Campus Chest. It was under
the direction of Mrs. Crownfield.
The show consisted of five acts,
the last and longest being a parody

Charles Underwood started the
show off in grand style with his
various selections on the bagpipes.
The next act was entitled "A
Piano Lesson," and it starred Carl
Baumbach and Dorothy Ann Ware,
both of the music department. Mr.
Baumbach played the music pro

Marlette and Dean Kent seemed
very realistic as the typical Guil

Correspondent Finds Germans
Depressed About Future
By UDO GENGENBACH
Guilfordian European Correspondent
WESTERN GERMANY, Nov. 7.
—German problems are many in
this crucial period, more than
enough, I should say. I always
think of the saying, "The situation
is serious, but not hopeless." That
was during the war. Today, many
people are saying, "The situation
is hopeless, but not serious"! But
on the other hand, it would be
actually preposterous to say that
the condition is not serious. On the
contrary, it is so serious that I am
afraid sometimes that we shall have
to go through the whole darned
mess again. And we have had so
much of it, most of us Germans!
I said in an article last year that
Germany is sick of war. I know
now, more than ever, that I was
right. All we want is peace to do
our work, and nothing else. That
is the opinion of most Germans, so
you know now why so many say,
"Without me!" when they start talk
ing about remilitarization.
That's one of the big problems, by
the way, and it isn't an easy one as
you can easily see. Another one is
the reuniting of Eastern and Wes
tern Germany. As you know, our
country Is still divided in two parts

by the Iron Curtain, and the longer
we have this separation, the longer
the Communists have a chance to
keep up their propaganda in East
ern Germany. Of course, a ballot
by the people would bring an over
whelming victory in favor of reunit
ing, but the leaders of the two di
visions just can't agree on when
and how to do it.
This is not all the fault of the
East German government, either.
Adenauer, our chancellor, has a
good deal to do with it too. His con
ditions are just unacceptable and
neither one will give way.
Of course, it is an open secret
that Adenauer is more or less only
a mouthpiece for McCloy, and the
"American policy" made by him
through orders from Washington.
Sometimes I really think, "Why
don't they leave us alone, —all of
them"? But one the other hand
there is still the menace of a Rus
sian attack. What to do? I don't
know what to think, and I don't
wonder that many people gave up
thinking, and are just living with
out bothering about what's coming
up tomorrow. It is too much for our
brains to see a clear picture,—l am
