From 'neath boudoir windows floated up the plaintive tones of a clear tenor. Well, perhaps that wasn't just the case, but at any rate, in 1903 UNC saw the need for organization of those under, the spell of the guitar, mandolin, banjo craze -of the day, and so Charles T. Woollen, genial comptroller of the Greater University, was selected as head of 'the Band. -Besides a Glee Club and a mostly stringed orchestra, the University 33and had its beginning at this time in the nucleus of six strong-winded -men whose main purpose was to snap up the cheering at the games and, -of course, they were not adverse to -winning the smiles of the girls at the big Spring baseball game with Vir ginia in Greensboro when all of "WCUNC and Greensboro College tturned out to cheer for us. ioiu Of Vets Get Officers' Club As Pre-Flight Moves Out Navy Hall Will Be Turned Over To Monogram Club As Home Of Athletic, Military Records With liquidation of the Carolina Pre-Flight School scheduled to be completed immediately, Chancellor R. B. House has announced plans for two of the buildings used by the Navy here. The officer's club on the Raleigh road just below Woollen gymnasium will be given over to the University Veterans Association, to be operated by them under University regulations. The clubhouse will be headquarters for the veterans and will serve as a meeting place and social center for them and their guests. Navy Hall will be preserved as the home of athletic and military records of Pre-Flight cadets and staff mem bers. It was built by the Navy as a social and reception center for cadets and has, housed offices of the school's public relations department. Chancellor House has appointed the Monogram Club as guardian of Navy Hall. The building will remain a spe cial glace where cadets will always be given a welcome when they return to Chapel Hill. The Monogram Club will use Navy Hall as its headquarters and meeting place. ' . Wearers of the school letters have been asked to conduct Navy Hall as a social and educational center, not only for all Carolina students, but for all members of the Chapel Hill commun ity. To Follow Sunday Supper Meeting Dr. Kenneth Foreman, professor of philosophy and Bible at Davidson Col lege, has been scheduled by the Coun cil for Religion in Life to speak at Hill Hall next Sunday, at 8 p.m. His subject is "One World or None." The CRIL has organized a commun ity supper to be held before the speech, for the purpose of allowing members of the various student reli gious groups to get acquainted. The supper is set for 6:30 p.m. at the Bap tist church, with members of the stu dent groups as well as students at large urged to attend. Tickets for this interfaith supper will be on sale at the YMCA this week. Dr. Foreman's speech is the first in a series of talks planned by the CRIL for this school year. Future speakers will discuss such topics as religion and education, religion and labor, and reli gion and rural life the whole series ii, in short, religion and life. : The answer to the question, "Just what is the CRIL?" can be done best by, quoting from Gen. MacArthur's speech at the Japanese surrender: "Military alliance, balances of power, League of Nations all in turn failed. We have had our last chance. If we do not now devise some greater and See CRIL, page U.

Besides the fun had at playing at school "breakins" near Chapel " Hill, the boys had mo ments of grandeur as when at the commencement at 1911, they "gave in fine style the University Hymn, with the congregation rising and sing ing ; In 1914, Director Woollen surrend ered thebaton to L. R. Sides, and again in 1925 the baton changed hands and T. Smith McCorkle stepped on the stand. Through the next eight years the band became an ever-increasingly important school activity. In '28, they got their first uniforms blue blazers. " The boys furnished their own white ducks to Serving Civilian and Military Students at UNC CHAPEL HILL, N.

Slocum Arrives In the fall of '33, our present di rector, Earl A. Slocum, came to us from Greensboro. At that time the only school-owned instruments were a few large horns and a bass drum, to which was added the unusual com bination of a piccolo and a glocken spiel. With these as tools, the band forged ahead to be awarded colorful .uniforms by the Athletic Association. New basses, baritones and bassoons were added as the joint gift of the Music and Athletic Departments. The band had increased in size to 115 pieces prior to the war's beginning in 1941. This fall the band is rapidly being molded into shape by its director. "This year, not only -will there be a drum major but also two attractive See MUSIC-MINDED, page h.

Sponsored by the Coed Senate, the program is compulsory for all women students. Doors to Hill Hall will close prompt ly at 5:10 o'clock, and any coed com ing in later will be counted absent. The program is designed to give coeds, especially those here for the first time this year, information on certain special services they get at Carolina. Speakers will be Dr. E. McG.

The Coed Senate in its meeting Tues day night, September 25, authorized this week's Coed Hour program. Oth er major business discussed that night concerned, local mail boxes in all wo men's residence houses. The Senate passed a bill giving $93 to the YWCA for this purpose. It was pointed out that local mail cannot be put into boxes in the halls now, since these are owned by the United States government and may be used only by U. S. postmen. Open lo cal mail boxes would save time and money for . campus organizations. Mail could be put up more quickly, and campus groups would not have to pay postage on local mail.

A spokes man for the group said it will wel come anyone who wishes to join and who will pledge to uphold "the prin ciples on which the party is founded." Included in the list of signers are the President" and Vice-President of the student body, the Speaker of the Student Legislature, the President of the Senior Class, the President of the Interfraternity Council, the President of the Interdormitory Council, the Editor of the Carolina Mag, the Speaker of the Coed Senate, and the Managing Editor of the Tar Heel. The new organization is to be known as the "United Carolina Party." In the opening declaration its found ers described it as a "party of prin ciple" which will "have no truck with political deals" and which would rather lose with the support of those who will fight for a better student government IN office and OUT, than win with the support of those who don't give a damn." The statement ended with the statement "Either the campus wakes up or student govern ment folds up!" The immediate effect that the Unit ed Carolina Party will have on the roles of the University and Student parties in campus politics could not yet be ascertained. It was pointed out that the new group has prominent representatives of both the older parties in its ranks as well as a number of students who had not be- ore been affiliated with any political organization; but just how deep the cleavage is in S. P. and U. P. circles is still unknown. Just how represen tative a group the signers constitute was considered another moot point, and it was felt in some quarters that as much as a week may elapse before the Carolina Party's relative strength becomes more apparent. Further details of the U. C. P.'s or ganization are promised for the near future, but it was revealed that no groups will be represented in the party as groups, and that a "conven tion" system to . make nominations and write platforms is envisaged. It was considered probable that a ticket will be placed in the November elec tions by the U. C. P., though no an nouncement to this effect has been issued. More speculation included a story that a party "conference" will be held during the week. A partial text of the statement is sued by the twenty-eight founders of the new party follows: Issued Statement "This is a statement of fact. It is made after much thought, much hesi tation, but above all it is made with See CAROLINA PARTY, page U. Old Well Symbolizes UNC By Jo Pugh The Old Well, a distinctive feature of Carolina tradition, has been a sym bol of the University to alumni and students for more than two centuries. Before transformed from the simple edifice of square shafts of rough wood to the present graceful structure, it served as a staunch servant to Caro lina for 132 years. It was used by the students then as n; is now as a meeting place tor stu dents and visitors. Back then it was the only source of water on the cam pus. All students used one dipper. Water was drawn from the well and heated over a wood fire between Old East and Old West for Saturday night baths. Among other purposes of the well, Zebulon Vance mentions one'in a story he told of a new temperance society formed while he was a student here. A student, on being pursued by a col lege official, hurled a forbidden flask, which was only half empty, into the well as he sped by. Mocking the hy Organization of a third political group, "United Carolina Party was revealed to the student body today. Prominent members of the two older parties are sponsoring the new organization. NUMBER SW S3 - " THIPA Sponsors New Radio Forum On Public Affairs The Tar Heel Institute of Public Affairs announced Sunday that it would sponsor the "Student Forum on Public Affairs" over the radio be ginning November 4. This will be the first sustained student roundtable in the history of the University. Director Buddy Glenn said he had concluded negotiations with Jack Hunkins, program director of radio station WBBB, for that station to carry the program each Sunday after noon from 2 to 2:30. The program will consist of two students and Moderator Glenn discussing some question of current interest. Ray Sylvester has joined the staff of the Institute as radio director to coordinate this activity. He will work with Elmo Roberds, assistant institute director, to promote the program. Station WBBB is located in Bur lington, and its coverage extends over most of central and eastern North Carolina and southern Virginia. The program will originate at the local studio and will be piped to Burling ton. All students, including coeds, will be eligible to participate in the forum. They will be selected on the basis of their vocal capacities and knowledge of the problem being discussed. No attempt will be made to obtain ex perts but every participant will be expected to know the subject being discussed. Sylvester is compiling a list of students for the broadcasts. Any student interested in participat ing is urged to see him to discuss the matter. The purpose of the forum is two fold. First, to bring students in con tact with the average person on topics of social importance, and, second, to give the students experience in self- expression over the air. . In 1940 the University Radio Studio sponsored some faculty and student roundtables, but they were not sus tained for any length of time. This is Glenn's second venture into the field of radio production. Last year he founded the IRC-sponsored "Carolina Roundtable." Staff Meeting All members of the Tar Heel edi torial staff are asked to meet at Horace Williams lounge in Graham Memorial Thursday evening at 7:45 o'clock. pocrisy of temperance societies, Vance claimed that the temperance boys al most drank the well dry the following day. When Carolina re-opened after the Civil War, students used the Old Well once more for bull-sessions, dates and confabs. Commencement programs were held in the open space in front of the well. A vain attempt was made in 1893 to supply the dorimtories with water by pumping it from the well by steam into large tanks in the attic of South building, where it was to be distri buted to other buildings. When Edwin Alderman became president in '96, he resolved to beau tify the old well, which had served the University for so many years. The old structure was transfigured into the present semblance of the famous Temple of Love in France. Silhouetted clearly against the dark with its graceful columns, the well is a long-remembered symbol of Carolina to students, alumni and visitors.
