concerning all kinds of thefts. And after six
weeks of the lowest kind of thievery we can think
of not one thief that has been caught. Why?
Simply because Carolina students have not realr
ized he is in their midst, have not realized it is
their responsibility to try and catch him.
The case of Nick Cruge'r is typical of those re
ported. Nick is working his wa3r through Caro-
for men. "Full advantage" means attending
school throughout the summer. Purdue Exponent.

In a nation at war it is impossible to continue

in the past and are fighting now to preserve.
Carolina students should hold on to their pos
sessions, and certainly when the guilty parties
are caught, all phases of sympathy should be for
gotten. The maximum penalty is too light for an
individual who will steal $36.00 from a boy work
ing his way through Carolina.
COEDS CAN HELP . . .
This fact must be realized social expenditures
must be reduced.
Fewer students are in the University now,
and, consequently, less money will be spent on
activities. Students who are here will not feel like
spending money frivolously.
That recreation is necessary is recognized even
by military authorities. United Service organiza
tion camps were organized to help provide much
needed recreational and social activity.
Having decided that recreation is necessary
and that social functions must be curtailed the
task is to determine methods of cutting expen
ditures. Should dances be confined to the cam
pus? Should local orchestras be engaged in
stead of name bands? Should functions such as
the Freshman frolic and the Sophomore ball

The front page of today's Exponent carries
a story about draft deferment for the men stu
dents of the University who attend the new sum
mer semester. This should encourage a great
number of men to follow the continuous plan of
study, and should keep a major portion of the
male side of Purdue's famous ratio in the Uni
versity but we are wondering about the coeds.
Educators have been urging those preparing for
engineering, physics, chemistry, and other, essen- swers to these questions. The All-University

too much for even Purdue men. Civilian morale in

those attending the summer session is to be kept

Portrait of a Carolina Wise-Guy:
He gets a $50 check once a month
this leaves him broke and borrowing
three weeks ... In order to even up,
he takes the old boy for an extra ten
for books, tuition, etc. ... He con
siders poker and dice-rattling a part
of the curriculum . . . The Honor sys
tem, is something for the Deans to
gas about he's out for all he can
get anyway he can get it every
one else is a sucker . . . The church
is a place where Chapel Hill towns
people congregate on Sunday . . . he's
never believed in anyone, including
his mother and never will . . . When
he takes a coed out the money he
i spends (if any) is itemized and he
is never bashful about presenting
his U-O-me ... He doesn't believe in
letting his classes interfere with his
education . . . He can give you the in
side story on anyone or anything
his favorite pastime is raking up
some coed's past . . . He's got all the
, answers but it works him like hell to
" pass ten hours per quarter ... He
. classes other people in three divis-f
' ions : jerks, dopes, and suckers . . .
' There's a smug leer on his pan that
continuously reeks with conceit
This University is a four-year-soft-spot
where he lies around and drinks
to the old man back home . . . Hell
never have a second childhood, be
cause hell never outgrow the first ;
pne . . . There's not an office on the
campus he couldn't step into and
straighten out in a week yet his
own life is a mess . . . He's got an
outlook as broad as a cross-eyed ant
and is as tolerent as a starving dog
with a bone . . . Hell take off his hat
to anyone whoU put something in -it
... If he gives you a match he
-expects a cigarette . . . He's a coni
sewer of tobacco btu he never buys
it as long as he can bum it . . . He's
the only guy on record to ever take
the pennies out of a blind man's hat
. . . He'd never sell out a friend for
less than ten cents . . . He's the guy
everyone knows too well. O. C.
War Does Strange Things: Mar- ,
shall Field III, of the Chicago de
partment store riches, has launched
a new newspaper, at a cost of several
million dollars. Why did he start
the Chicago Sun amid rising costs of
war time? Because Marshall Field
must surrender $800,000 out of every i
million that he earns to the govern
ment in taxes. So he might,' as well
invest in something worth losing
money in. . . . Walter Winchell, like
wise, is giving away his weekly radio
salaries to every charity he can find

Air Raid Instructions For Civilians
1. As soon as bombs start drop
ping, run like hell. It doesn't matter
where, as long as you run. Wear
track shoes if possible. .If the people
in front of you are slow, or if they
fall down, you won't have any trouble
passing them or jumping over them.
2.. Take advantage of opportuni
ties afforded when the air sirens
sound the warning of the blackout:
A. If in a bakery, grab a pie.
B. If in a tavern, grab a beer.
C. If in a movie, grab a blonde.
D. If at a carnival, grab a grab
3. If you find an unexploded
bamb, pick it up and shake it. Maybe
the firing pin is stuck.
4. If an incendiary bomb is found
burning in a building, throw gaso
line on it. You can't put it out any
way, so you might as well have a little
5. When the bombs first fall,
holler, "Bloody Murder!" It will add
to the excitement and confusion and
scare everybody, especially the kids.
6. It is also handy to have onions
with you in case you get stuck in an ;
air raid shelter. It may make you
unpopular, but you will have lots "of
room for yourself.
7. If you should be the victim of
a direct hit, don't go to pieces. Just
lie there still, and. the sanitation
squad will pick you up. .
8. If an air raid warden tells you
what to do, knock him down, and do
as you please. This is a free country.
Besides, it's more fun to get into the
street and thumb your nose at -the
. Japs. : " .
9. Lastly, break every fire alarm '
box that you see, even if there isn't
a fire. At least it will make more
noise, and the more noise, the more
. No' one will ever know how inspired
we were to hear last Wednesday that
business manager Rogerson and his
1 lieutenants were giving up the luxury
of cars and taking to the spokes and
sprocket for transportation. It was.
we felt, the epitome of sacrifice and
unselfishness especially since Mr.
Rogerson himself was going to have
trouble reaching the pedals. We were
ashamed of ourselves. Still, with the
administration showing the way, we
hoped at last that the student body
might find its duty clear to economize
for the national crisis and Donald
