Threats of U. S. Intervention in War
Bring Hitler, Mussolini Together Today
By United Press
ROME, Sept. 4 (Friday) Threats
of U. S. intervention in the war on
Britain's side as well as a new winter
plan of military strategy are bring
ing Adolf Hitler and Benito Musso
lini tncpther in conference today at
Brenner Pass, according to informed
Nazi and Fascist quarters.
The two dictators were reported
arly today to be en route to their
favorite rendezvous at the Alpine pass
for a consultation which probably, will
begin about noon (6 a.m. E.S.T.)
with the. foreign ministers of both
countries participating. ..
From the conference, it was specu
lated, may come a decision shifting
the main theater of war away from
the British Isles to the Mediterranean
North Africa area.
Far-reaching diplomatic considera
tion also wa3 said to be .involved in
the meeting of; Hitler and Mussolini
involving Spjdn and Russia as well
as the two dictators' new military ally,
Last March 18 in the same sudden
manner they met at Brenner Pass and
eight weeks later the Nazi blitzkreig
rolled across Holland and Belgium on
its way to crush France. At that meet
ing it has been suggested, the ap
proximate time was set for Italy's en
trance into the war.
Fascist quarters indicated early to
day that the two axis leaders probably
will decide what their, attitude will be
in dealing with the United States' pos
sible intervention in the war espe
cially in view of the new-Italo-Ger-man-Japanese
alliance creating new
vital questions, in the Far East as well
as in Europe.

With New Title
In Long Session s
By Orville Campbell
The Carolina Buccaneer is dead. By
an overwhelming vote of 34 to 6 the
student legislature last night passed
a bill doing away with the campus
number one publication problem '
It took approximately two hours
for the assembled group of student
representatives to act on the measure.
However, throughout the discussion
there was little argument opposing
the abolition of the magazine which
has caused much trouble throughout
its 15 years of existence.
,The bill, as passed last night, car
ried out the recommendations pre
sented to the ways and means commit
tee of the legislature by the 11-man
student-faculty committee which met
last week with Dr. Frank Graham at
the call of student body president Dave
The bill clearly states that at no
time in the future shall a humor maga
zine at Carolina carry the name of
Buccaneer." But it is also stated
there is a definite need for a humor
magazine on the campus and there
will be one of some kind in the future.
Comment from the floor seemed to
prove that the Buccaneer in its' pres
ent state is not wanted by the stu
dents. Eight members made brief
talks, and each mentioned they had
talked with students throughout the
campus; all of which felt the Buccaneer
was doing harm to the University.
At the call of Bill Cochrane, speaker
of the legislature, Dave Morrison
