. LENOIR NEEDS VOLUME
After more than two years of deplorable eating-conditions
in Chapel Hill, gigantic Lenoir Hall -is opening for lunch to
day with capacity to feed the entire student body. C. E. Gooch,
an efficient, two-fisted business man, will manage the University-owned
and operated dining hall in an effort to serve the
most ancl best food for the least money. Mr. Gooch will be as
sisted by J. E. Monroe and Mrs. Monroe, who are so well known
by the students who have been eating at the Graham Memorial
Cafeteria. Lenoir Hall will employ over a hundred persons and
plenty of jobs will be open to students.
Lenoir Hall is opening in answer to the plea from the stu
' dent body for decent meals at a decent price. Although the new
dining hall will not begin immediately to serve the thirty-five
cent complete meals for which it was so famous before the war,
Lenoir Hall will certainly be able to give more quality and quan
tity than any other eating establishment in Chapel Hill. There
are ample stocks of food with sufficient variety to completely
satisfy the student body. .
As its facilities are enormous, Lenoir Hall will need volume
to best serve the students. The greater the number of students
which eats in Lenoir Hall, the less each student will have to pay.
Those students who desire to better the student body, the Uni
versity and themselves should patronize Lenoir Hall to the full
est, thus giving it an opportunity to give the best service.
Mr. Gooch spent over an hour "Saturday afternoon showing
us the gigantic kitchens, preparation departments, store rooms,
serving facilities and eating spaces in the building. In the base
ment of the building are tremendous storerooms, capable of
holding enough food to feed the student body for over a year.
The kitchens are equipped to prepare any kind of food in large
quantities. There is even machinery for manufacturing enough
ice cream to keep 'all the University dining halls and fountains
, .If enough students eat in Lenoir Hall to make all of this
equipment operate an anything near its intended capacity, we
will have excellent meals at a price lower than that of any com
mercial eating establishment.
According to state law, Lenoir Hall must operate exclusive
ly for students and University employees. The success of Le
noir Hall depends wholly on the response from the student body.
With a larg6 part of the student body moving to the upper and
lower quadrangles, Lenoir Hall will be in a very convenient
location.- The rest of the students should consider it their moral
obligation to help give the dining hall the necessary volume to
"Dull through its first months of operation.
The closing of Graham Memorial Cafeteria in the basement
of the Student Union Building will leave considerable space to
be used for student activities. The present intention is to con
vert this space into a game room; we would also like to see a
fountain and snack bar installed which would be open during
the regular hours of the building. Such a small serving unit
would be of great advantage to students who use the building
for recreation and for work in student activities. The snack
bar could be operated by self-help students.
The opening of Navy Hall to the students and people of the
community brings into existence a second Graham Memorial.
Navy Hall will be managed by the Monogram Club, but will not
be for their exclusive use. Graham Memorial is managed by a
board of directors consisting of campus leaders and representa
tives from the administration. The co-ordination of these two
buildings (which will have similar functions) would be bene
ficial. We would like to see Navy Hall become the home of the
many campus organizations which can not find room in Graham
The YMC A is another building used more or less for recrea
tional purposes. If the various organizations which have facili
ties for arranging entertainment for all the students, work to
gether in the coming peacetime set-up, Carolina has an oppor
tunity to offer the best in a wholesome social program for the
entire student DOdy. v

versity's sesquicentennial celebration, hopes to make these ex
ercises one of the major events of the celebration.

About three years ago University leaders arranged to have
James B. Conant, the well-known president of Harvard Univer
sity, speak on this day. The Association of American Universi
ties, also desiring to feature Conant, will hold their convention

Any student who thinks that this program will be dry and un
interesting should attend and discover that he was wrong. :

tioning again with the presentation of Henry Scott, who is sup
posed to be an eminent humorist. Actually, this committee is

never expecting to see such a vio

Will Proserpine be in by 10:30?

Undoubtedly this "Don't be so
eager" attitude weakens the quality
of classes, because it keeps many
good questions from being asked.
Furthermore those who do the jeer
ing are developing a trait of char
acter which is no asset in life.'
But a greater evil than these is
involved. After all, the future of
this country can be no better than
the peopletwho live in it, and they
can be no better than their educa
tion. In a way the future success
and happiness of the U. S. A., and
perhaps the whole world, hinges on
the kind of teaching that is done, on
the amount of education that the
people have. There is enough con
tempt for education and learning on
the outside of colleges without hav
ing it on the inside too. The "Don't
be so eager" attitude can become a
menace to American education. It is
to be hoped that this attitude will
die but at Carolina.
.; - :
In a recent . Gallup poll, the
American people registered their
opinion two to one 'against loaning,
money to either Great Britain or
Russia. Whether this opinion is
based upon a chronic disapproval
of sending U. S. funds out of the
country on a credit system, or
whether it is a reflection of Ameri
can reaction to Labour England
and Communist Russia, cannot be
determined. But, .according to the
predominating opinion m the CPU's
discussion Sunday night, such a
stand is justified from neither an
isolationist outlook nor an inter
, Great Britain and Russia both de
sire the use of American funds but
for one purpose: to buy from the
United States the consumer and
durable goods which they desper
ately need. Both countries have suf
fered considerable material devas
tation during the war with the
Axis, and both are essentially in
need of the goods which can re
vitalize industrial economies. The
United States is the only country in
the world at present which can fur
nish these goods. The delicate fac
tor involved is that neither Britain
nor Russia is in a position to give
goods in exchange for these goods.
Thus, both are seeking to borrow
American dollars in order to buy
them from us.
If Great Britain and Russia bor
row money to buy goods from us,
that will mean more production and
consequently greater employment
in this country. Although the Unit
ed States, during a normal year,
exports only about 8 of its total
production, the fluctuation of the
foreign market on which that 8
is sold is a determining factor in
our standard of living. When it
goes up, our standard of living is
higher; when it -comes down, our
standard of living is lower.
To understand this is to grasp
the significance of a relatively
simple fact concerning foreign ex
change: we buy foreign goods in
direct proportion to the sale of our
exports. We buy British goods, with
British pounds. To receive those
pounds we sell American goods to
Britain. And vice versa.
The question has been asked: in
loaning money to Russia, will we
not be financing the imperialism of
CERTAIN COWS CAUSING CONSIDERABLE
By Charlie Kauffman, Jr.
I'd like to advise our govern
ment to give some assistance to
animal relations while they're as
sisting everybody and everything
else. Animals live a very rough
life, especially so in the case of
Minnie Quarts. In case you don't
know who Miss Quarts is, which is
most likely, she is the1 mascot of
Irvingdale Dairy Farms in Atlanta.
She's really quite the cow. All
of Atlanta follows the romances in
Miss Quarts' life as if it were the
life of a very dear friend. And she
is just that. She represents the
originality and individuality of the
American people. I don't know who
thought up the idea of Minnie
Quarts, but she's been a leading
figure in the Georgian Elite for
quite some time now. Just about
every Sunday in the Atlanta Con
stitution there's an article on the
society page describing to the full
est the charming occurrances at
some of Miss Quarts' tea parties
for her mooing acquaintances.
Minnie, of course, divides her
time between domestic affairs and
her work at Irvingdale Farms. She
holds the interest of all the patrons
by her beautiful figure and cute
comments which appear on the
Irvingdale milk bottles. Recently
that dairy adopted square bottles
and immediately Miss Quarts was
painted on the bottle in a stimulat
ing come-hither look and saying:
"This is a square deal." The of
ficials at the dairy told me person
ally that she writes all of the ad
vertisements for the bottles and
billboards on which she appears.
It's proved a very good idea be
cause countless thousands of Geor
gians follow Miss Quarts' advice in
relation to milk and milk products.
Two years ago, soon after she start
ed her Pep Milk radio program,
Mary Lee Taylor, of the same oc
cupation, had Miss Quarts up in
court because she advocated better
working hours for cows. The court
decided Minnie was right because
she -was a direct producer of the
milk. This sort of left Miss Taylor

Such thought is hardly justified by

spired by our insistence on inter
fering with her domestic affairs,
would most assuredly go more de
The long-range question of even
tual British and Russian industrial
competition is probably the most
important ohe. Russia, in particu
lar, is a potential competitor of the
United States. She undoubtedly has
the natural resources, and more
than likely will have the technical
know-how, to produce in volume and
in quality the goods which would
compete with ours on a world mar
ket. Her recently-won access to the
commercial seas guarantees her the
power to ship her goods anywhere
in the world. Whether or not Rus
sia will compete with us in volume
andor quality is not, however, the
supreme question. The price at
which she can put her goods on sale
is the really important source of
competition. There is little doubt
that Russia, operating under a com
munist economy, can undersell any
capitalist nation on the globe once
her productive facilities are put
into high gear. If and when the
United States finds itself un
able to compete with Russian prices
on a large scale, a decided change
in our economy is inevitable.
Either we will liberalize it to re
duce our selling prices, or we will
suffer a setback in our standard of
living which, like Great Britain's,
is dependent upon a stable foreign

Equally as fascinating and twice
as shocking is the love life of Min
nie Quarts. She was married in
1941 to one Minnie Barrels, but
that match soon proved a failure
because Minnie Barrels wanted his
wife to give up her career and de
vote it to rearing children. Her
second husband, Minnie Hogsheads,
left her for the same reason, be
sides he spoke French and the only
foreign language Minnie can speak
is Spanish. However, last year she
found the perfect bull. The bull she
wanted to spend the rest of her life
with. They got married and soon
after a little stranger was born to
the happy couple. Everyone was
overjoyed because that meant that
there would be an heir to the throne
of the House of Moo. Appropriately
they named the offspring Minnie

Miss Quarts is now madly in love
with a vagabond western cow from
the lone prairie. Jhe is asking the
advice of her friends in this deci
son. Hundreds of letters have been
written to her with all kinds of ad
vice given. Personally, I think she
should consider her daughter, Min
nie Pints, who is still quite young.
I also believe that she won't get
married again because the public
ity man at Irvingdale Farms
couldn't possibly have another name
for the fourth husband.
