Lenoir High Band To Play Here Today Reviving a tradition of long stand ing which was interrupted during the critical war period, the Lenoir High School Band will play at the Carolina Virginia game today. The band is the oldest high school band in North Carolina and has been in continuous operation since its founding in 1924. Widely known and acclaimed as one of the best high school bands, it is under the direction of Captain Jamie's C. Harper, holder of one of, the coveted memberships in the Ameri can Bandmasters Association. The band's first appearance in Chapel Hill was in 1927 at the Thanksgiving Day Classic Carolina Virginia game.

La Meri and La Meri, sponsored by the Student Entertainment committee, will present Dances of Many Lands at Memorial Hall on Monday at 8:30 p.m. Inter nationally known for her exotic perA formances in London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, as well as Tokyo, Hong Kong and Stockholm, La Meri will present her repertory of racial dances which she perfected under native masters in the country of their origin. Admission will be by student en tertainment ticket. Tickets for non students may1 be obtained at the Y or at Memorial Hall Monday night.

A homecom ing crowd of about 20,000 is antici pated for the encounter, which is the fourth home game of the year.. ; Virginia's eleven, which has aver aged 31' points a game this season, is The Carolina cross country track team will meet the Virginia run ners during the football game to day, the race beginning during the first quarter and finishing during the second. Virginia was beaten by Duke last week, and the Tar Heels are undefeated in six southern meets." favored in view of its commendable record, thus far in the campaign, but as has been the case in nearly every game this year, it will be far from an all-opponent affair. The Tar Heels have "given three of last year's major bowl contenders a fight to the finish this year, and the charges of r Coach Snavely are on the upgrade and are considered in many circles likely to turn the trick on the Cavaliers. Both teams reputedly have fierce walls, and it is predicted by the ex perts that it will be another hard fought tussle up front. However, with such passers as Tom Gorman and Charlie Ellis in the tile, the game could easily develop into a brilliant aerial encounter. Gorman, who has played an impor tant role in several scoring drives for Carolina this year, turned in his best performance last weekend when he passed from his own 33 to a touchdown in six plays, two of which went as in complete. On the other hand, Virginia's Ellis ranks among the best passers in the nation, having an average of .634. Too, Virginia possesses one of Dixie's best runners in Ray Brown, and it is through this wide-open, through the middle play that the visitors are ex pected to have the most success. The Carolina-Virginia series, the oldest continuous in the south, is tied up at 23 wins apiece, with three ties, and today's game, as was the case last week, will decide the team to go ahead in the all-time record. Coach Snavely's eleven will still be slowed a little by injuries, but if ev erything goes according to expecta tions, all will be ready for some ac tion with the exception of maybe Mike Rubish, end.

Freshmen Vote For Officers On Wednesday Candidates Meet Brinkley Monday Walt Brinkley, chairman of the Elections Committee, announced at the Student Legislature meeting Thursday night that the .election of freshman officers has been postponed until Wednesday. The reason given for this delay was that - more time was needed to publicize the election and thus enable every freshman to vote. Jimmy Wallace introduced a reso lution to the Legislature that it . in form the state government that it is unalterably opposed to chapter 122 of North Carolina Public Laws of 1939 as unfair and selfish and that the legis lature demand the repeal of the law in the next session of the General As sembly. The questionable law is one which prevents state organizations from com peting in private business with tax- paying citizens. As iurther reading of the law shows that practically every institution besides the University is exempted from it, the law is construed as. being direct discrimination against the Book Exchange in favor of Chapel Hill businesses. The following bills were introduced by the Ways and Means Committee and passed unanimously: A bill to I establish an executive committee of ? the Student Welfare Board to expedite important matters; a bill to petition the Student Welfare Board to investi gate the management and prices of the Book Exchange; and a bill to set up a committee of various campus of ficers to supervise the orientation of all new incoming students to the Uni versity. Candidates for freshman officers are requested to meet Walt Brinkley in the Grail room of Graham Memorial Mon day afternoon at five o'clock.

Orginization, will speak on "Religion and Labor" Sunday at 8 p.m. in Hill Hall. The sermon is part of the University series sponsored by the Council for Religion in Life. Dr. Frank P. Graham will introduce Mr. Eby. The speaker, author of many articles in professional, religious and labor publications, attended the University of Chicago in 1929-31, specalizing in international relations. He taught social studies in the Ann Arbor, Mich., high school for six years after his graduation from college. In 1933 he spent five months in the Orient with the Friends' Good Will Mission. Mr. Eby served as executive secre tary for the Chicago Teachers Union from 1937 until 1943. While holding this position he also conducted the po litical campaign of the Independent Voters' Committee, electing Raymond S. McKeough to the United States Senate and Benjamin Adamowski to the House of Representatives. IRC Meeting Members of the International Re lations Club will discuss the Indo nesian problem at their meeting in Roland Parker Lounge of Graham Memorial Monday at 7:30. Bill Ses sions will present the factual report. Gay Morenus has been elected new IRC representative to CRIL. ful costumes have drawn comment from universally authentic sources. However, her settings so perfectly planned, play a definite part in the cre ation of the atmosphere which has enchanted many audiences, as they were taken, by her series of dances from India to Spain. La Meri has studied the technique of native dances until she is able to penetrate racial mysteries by her fan tastic performances. La Meri and her noted dance group will be making their initial appearance on the Carolina campus Monday but judging from the enthusiastic recep tion they have received on many other campus programs throughout the country, the Carolina student body will give the troupe a royal welcome. The Memorial Hall attraction will be the final one of the Student Enter tainment series for this term but an other ambitious schedule is already in the making for the winter quarter. Weekend And Concert ,s omvaK win piay zor nances r naay and Saturday nights and a concert Saturday afternoon. The dance Friday will be open only to members of the German Club. Bids will be distributed by each member of the German Club for the dance Saturday. The concert Saturday afternoon will be open to the entire campus at $1 per person. Second Appearance This appearance will mark the second time the noted trumpeter has played at Carolina. Spivak played for the mid-winters of 1942. After his ap pearance, the Tar Heel commented thusly: "Charlie Spivak brought his band to the campus yesterday and after an hour-long public concert in Memorial Hall was accepted with honors by the Carolina student body. The packed audience roared approval of the man who plays the sweetest trumpet in the world." This passage is representative of what critics and audiences through out the nation have been saying of Spi vak since his rise to fame in 1940. In 1941, Spivak played the entire winter at the famed Glen Island Casino. Since hat time he has risen swiftly in popu larity through recordings for Colum bia records and appearances at the Paramount theatre in New York and other nationally-known theatres and night clubs. He has been featured over all of the major networks. Miller Style Hailed as the logical successor to the late Glenn Miller, Spivak has styled his band largely along Miller lines. A smooth, soft, reed section, backed by restraining brass, has become an in dentifying feature of the Spivak style. The booking of Spivak follows on the footsteps of Bobby Sherwood, and indicates a return to pre-war Caro lina when name bands played "the Hill" frequently. Play maker Production December 6-8 To Have Elaborate Background Highly stylized scenery, expressing the mood of the play, i3 the stage set for T. S.

Unusual lighting will add to the ef fectiveness of Mr. Burrows set ac cording to advanced information.

Ail seats are reserved for "Murder in the Cathedral," the curtain rising at 8:30 p. m. Admission is 93c or by season ticket.
