Above is a pictorial review of Carolina's War Training Program. In the upper left the CVTC is ready to parade in the days of its glory. The
military review of seamen in school at Carolina, more frequent consultation with advisors, experiments for the government here, and visits of re- -turning
service men portray Carolina's glowing contribution to the nation's war effort.

Shown above is the military review for Lord Halifax, then British Ambassador to the United States. He spoke to the students during his stay
here and his trip to the University was sponsored by the International Re'ations Club. This represents the success of the extra-carricular activi
ties in maintaining the excellence of their activities. ' , '
Though many of Carolina's extra-eurricuJar activities were severe!;
curtailed by the war, campus politics was as hot as ever. Shown here
are three students who were elected as officers of a wartime graduating
class, representing the three groups at th University" civilian, milj.
tary and coed.
Roland "Pete' Parker, unusually
popular Dean of Men and friend
and comrade of the students, left
for service in the Red Cross serv
ice in India during the winter of
1944. He exemplifies the exodus of
the administration officials to serve
the nation during the war.

Mr?. Roosevelt spoke here dur
ing the war and made a talk on
"better race relations." She wa a
CPU wartime presentation.
Kat Hill was the first woman to
be editor of the Tar Heel. She
represented the trend away from a
man's university. In spite of this
and other demonstrations of fe
male equality, the Board of Trus
tees has refused to admit freshman
and sophomore girls to the University.
Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker, hero
of two World Wars and Pre-ident
of Eastern Air Lines, spoke here in
the spring of 1944. He wa spon
sored by the International Rela
tions Club and represented a
wartime continuation of their
