This telegram began the establishment to the rear of Carr Dorm.
Everyone will hate to see the cadets leave except the coeds; they hate
to have men around. After one unfortunate incident early in 1942 rela

charing Dr Graham s services with their country is an impor
tant part of the University's contribution to the successful
conduct of the war Other colleges corporations ana institu

sCaivsroity have sent so cany of- thoir daughters and seas

The above letter from President Roosevelt, was received by the Tar Heel in the midst of a campaign to
keep President Graham with the University and with the' War Labor Board. The question of Graham's fnlltime
return to the University had taken on added momenta m among the newspapers of the state and nation. This
probably accounted for President Roosevelt's personal attention in the matter.
