Mm 194 5 Farewell Assembly Given Pre-Flights At Memorial Ma By Billy ... - Many North Carolina dignitaries bade farewell to the Pre-Flight at Memorial Hall on Thursday night. Chancellor Robert B. House presided and Lt.-Governor L. Y. Ballentine, President Frank P. Graham, Honorable Josephus Daniels, Captain E. E. Hazlett and Commander James Raugh spoke. Chaplain. Alexander of the Pre- Flight made the invocation and Chancellor House said that Navy Hall was to be preserved in honor of the Pre-Flight after they left. The Monogram Club will be guardian of the hall, where Pre-Flight trophies and awards will be preserved. President Graham, who gave the first farewell talk said, "You have been a member of the University family for the past three years. 1700 of the fittest men in America have come here and thousands of them have left here to go to the battle fronts of the war. It was the Pre-Flight boys such as you that made way for the land forces to capture strategic islands and lands in this war. Lt. Gov. Ballentine said that North Carolina is proud to have had a part in the war effort and in furnishing training grounds for all types of armed forces. "It is my hope that you so forth with tlie same zeal ana astwminw in post-war world for peace as you went forward for her in the winning of the war. The Honorable Josephus Daniels was the next speaker. Since Mr. Daniels was Secretary of the Navy during World War I, he addressed the Pre- Flights as fellow shipmates. "In the 150 years since the Univ ersity has opened its doors to young men, it has not given such a welcome as it has given to you," he said. "The Navy has not only given the country many great standards and traditions but also many great slo gans." You have to have guts to fight. "Admiral Dewey 'gave the only per missive slogan of warfare when he met the Spanish fleet in Manila and said to one of his officers, 'You may fire when you're ready," said Mr. Daniels. Mr. Daniels said that the slogan of the Navy at all times is "We are ready now." Mr. Daniels said, "there was much controversy after World War I about who won the war. The Army-said they did, the Navy said they did, Hoover said food did. Finally a self appointed committee was set up to see who realy won the war and after passing on many claims they came to the conclusion that the military police and the doughunt girls won it." "When the question is asked after this war," said Mr. Daniels, "every body will say the Naval Pre-Flights." See 'FAREWELL, page S. Serving Civilian and Military Students at UNC CHAPEL HILL, N.

All veterans on campus who were former union members, are especially invited to attend this meeting. The Union held a regular meeting last Sunday night, but was confined See CPU PLANS, pages. 11 UNC: Veterans Elect Officers; Delegation Visits Governor Governor Gregg Cherry told a dele gation of ten Carolina veterans Thursday that he will use his influence to procure revision of the present rul ing that surplus war property can be sold only to veterans who have at least one-half interest in some busi ness. He said he will contact the state's Senators and Representatives requesting the change. The delegation was sent by the University Veterans Association. A special meeting of the University Veterans Association is called for next Monday, where the delegation, which included Bill Smith, president; John Fowler, vice-president; Dewey Dor sett, chairman; Veteran Affairs Com mittee; Lloyd Gardner; and six other Grid Warriors IFC Votes To End Rushing On Sunday The Interfraternity Council voted by a large majority to end the rushing period Sunday night, at a special meeting Thursday called by President Walt Brinkley.

Socialism Topic Of First Thipa Forum; Glenn Moderates i The Tar Heel Institute of Public Affairs sponsored student forum dis-: cussed "Capitalism vs Socialism In the United States" Wednesday in its first meeting. Vincent Williams and Roy Thompson defended capitalism, and Harrison Tenney and Bill Crisp supported socialism. Thompson, leading for- capitalism, said that socialism is weak politically because it takes away the political liberty in the system. Tenney retali ated for socialism, stating that there is no political liberty in a society in which capitalists control the majority of the avenues of information. 'members of the Association, will re- port. The question of getting jeeps for the veterans was brought up at last Monday's meeting of UVA, when John T. Fowler was elected vice-president; Dewey Dorsett, chairman of the Vet eran Affairs Committee; J. B. Spill man, chairman of the Social Commit tee; Bob Hamburger, chairman of the Housing Committee ;and Jack Lackey, publicity director.

Bill. Tech Today Capacity Crowd To See Opening Grid Encounter Fourteenth Tilt In Carolina-Tech Series Scheduled For Kenan Stadium At 2:30 By Irwin Smallwood Carolina's 1945 football eleven officially launches its collegiate season here this afternoon when Coach Carl Snavely's lads lock horns' with a highly-favored Georgia Tech aggregation in Kenan stadium at 2 :30 o'clock. A capacity crowd of more than 20,000 is expected to witness the all-important encounter. The battle will be the 14th in the Carolina-Tech series, and the Tar Heels will be seeking their fourth triumph. The locals have downed the Engineers from down in the deep south only three times in 13 attempts, but two of these three wins came while the Tar Heels were under the tutelage of the present coach Carl Snavely. ft will be a matter of a mystery team of Carolina pitted against a vaunted team from Tech already rated, by the experts as one of the best squads in the south. Tech has some 23 men returning from the roster last season, and their big line, coupled with a combination of flashy backs is expected to rein triumphantly in most of southern and southeastern circles. However, the Tar Heels are not counted out yet by any means, and to put it in the words of returning head Coach Snavely: "If what we hear about Tech is true, we should lose, but the score is still 0-0." From the time Coach Snavely and his assistants, Russ Mur- phey and Max Reed, arrived on the campus for work July 1, the practice field here has been a scene of great activity, and much water has gone under the bridge since then. The boys worked and worked hard, under the blazing sun of July and August and all, and four full-game scrimmages were held even before the season was officially opened last week with Camp Lee. These scrimmage games were played with Pre-Flight, N. C. State, and Juniors, Seniors Should Make Plans For Yack Pictures Only 30 persons out of approximate ly 1,000 Juniors and Seniors have been to the Yack oflice to make appointments for their 1946 Yackety Yack pictures, according to Managing Editor Roy Thompson. "The staff of the '46 Yack is interest ed in getting the yearbook out in 1946," said Thompson, "and insofar as is humanly possible, we intend to do just that. We are willing to work several hours a day, but without the coopera tion of the student body our efforts will be useless." The Yack office on the mezzanine in Graham Memorial will be open from two to six Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. Anyone, civi lian or serviceman, who wants his picture to appear in the '46 Yack must make an appointment on one of these days. If not, his picture will not ap pear. A fee of $3.50 for Seniors and $2.50 for Juniors, for space in the yearbook, is payable when the appointment is made. These are the only fees the stu dent body pays directly to the Yack, See JUNIORS, SENIORS, page S. Carolina's grid warriors i nan cu rate the 1945 season today when they take on the highly regarded Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Kenan Stadium. KickofT time is scheduled for 2:30. NUMBER SW 4PDC of Greensboro, two being With Pre-Flight. During those hard days of drilling, all the candidates, which included only six returning lettermen, were looked over well, and all were given a chance to show what they could do. The scrimmage games showed up weak nesses, plenty of them, but practice sessions, held six days a week since September 3, have constantly been turned over to the ironing out of mis takes made in these tilts. It has been a hard road for the Tar Heel mentor and his assistants, which low include Charley Jamerson, Stretch Howell and Peanut Doak, but they have done a good job and win or lose, it can well be said that they have put in a maximum of hard work to build a winning team. The Tar Heels opened the season last week with a 6-0 win over a potent Camp Lee eleven, and this week has been turned over to the correcting of mistakes made in that game and run ning ( against the 'T' to be used by the Georgia Tech crew. Several lineup changes have been made for the game today, including the possible inserting of a new GI, Mike Rubish, into the starting eleven after but one week of drills. Tentatively set to take the field for the opening kickoff this afternoon are : See TAR HEELS, page S.
