FOR THE WAR...
Those in our armed forces now and those sub
ject to the draft have no problem to face that
compares with the one which the population will
have to face only too soon or not soon enough.
Men going into the war have a definite pattern
to follow, but the remaining public has a task
lying ahead of it which is not at all defined.
Only a minority realizes that in a year or so
we will face the world's hardest and most broad
spread depression. With increased spending ne
cessitated by the war and with the loss of man
power in industry we are virtually cutting out
our core and building up . our outer shell. It is
inevitable that a partially hollow sphere will col
lapse at some point. Appropriations made by
Congress exceed any war expenditures in the

GOING TO WASTE
Mark Ethridge called Carolina "The Intellec
tual Center of the South," but as far as the ma
jority of the students are concerned, it ain't so.
One would naturally expect, and Mr. Ethridge
probably believed that a university which stands
out from the rest in almost every other aspect
would also have a unique group of students. At cessesof democracy which have ben

hope to find a student body that would contrast
with the carefree, irresponsible college kids that
clutter up the usual American campus.
As a matter of fact, the Carolina student body
isn't really aware that this is the intellectual

By Bucky Harward
Calmly and quietly, Dean Brad
shaw told the Student Legislature
and all student government last
Wednesday night that either it -would
have to measure up to the crisis or
else be closeted for the duration.
The Dean's speech was no threat.
It was an appeal that campus leaders
modify and adapt their government
for quick decisions and efficent ac
tion necessary on a wartime campus.
For, as long as the student adminis
tration meets and handles its prob
lems with the essential speed and ef
ficiency, overburdened South build
ing has no desire to take on the in
creased load of governing the cam
pus. Except for a few isolated in
stances, the University administra
tions have never itched sufficiently
to take back any part of the right
to self government which it has given
to Carolina students.
But what South building has given,
that also can it take away. And
unless the campus and its leaders
wake up into a wartime campus, the
administration may find it necessary
to take back student government un
til the war is over. t .
With that- retraction, of course,
would go all the training in respon
sibility and citizenship and the pro-
pants for so many years. Thats

Students have begun to accept in earnest the
horrible extent of the far-flung war disasters to
soldiers and civilians. Today marks the seventh
day of the Red Cross-World Student Service
$1,000 drive for financial and material aid to
American soldiers, citizens and students in the
war-torn parts of the world. In this short time,
the organization has already reached the half
way mark due to the efficient management by
Jean Hahn, Hundley Gover, and Dick Railey and
the quick co-operation of the students through
the dormitories, fraternities, YMCA, Coed Sen
ate, and IRC. Here is one worthwhile fund that
overcame general student apathy and really got
more done with less talk in the shortest time.

Besides, the damnable apathy now
manifested in the student adminis
tration is not an isolated sin.
That same apathy and complacency
have been continually manifested in
the whole nation and some of its gov

But the fact that the fault is wide
spread will not exempt student gov
ernment from necessary consequenc
es. It, like South building and Wash
ington, must begin to adopt a policy
of quick and intelligent action, to
cut out the quibbling, to centralize
and coordinate power and authority.
Student leaders next year must be
the best available. Political parties
have an obligation to the campus to
forget their customary mudslinging
and petty inter-party bickerings and
nominate the most qualified candi
dates. Candidates, as has already
been suggested, should present their
qualifications and a definite plat

By Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence
In a great many courses in the
University, especially in the elemen
tary ones, a textbook is found to be
practically essential. In mathema
tics the student needs such a book
for his formulas; his history, for the
important facts ; in science, for meth
ods; and so on. Even in advanced
classes the student often finds a text
What is true in other fields is true
in the realm of religion. Religion
is not simply a matter of feeling;
it is also a matter of the intellect.
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy mind" at the same time
as "with all thy heart." Most of us
are in the elementary grades as re
gards our religion. We need guidance
in our study, and above all we need a
textbook. In this matter we are in
deed fortunate, as we have one that
is unsurpassed the Bible, and for
us Christians specially the New Test
ament. The New Testament is a
practical guide to Christian Living
and to Christian Doctrine. Unlike
most textbooks it is fascinatingly in
teresting, for there are no long com
pendiums of religious maxims or
moral precepts; but instead we have
the record of what actual people did
and said. In the Gospels we have
brief accounts of the most wonder
ful life ever lived, while in the Acts
and the Epistles we have the story
of the impact of that life on others.
We see what Christianity meant to
ordinary people. Most of the record
is simple and easily understood, but
nevertheless there are many places
that will test the ability of the ad
We are all interested in living and
try more or less intelligently to real
ize the full and abundant life. It is
the path of common sense to use
whatever help we can find to attain
this end. It is the custom in this
university to present a Bible to the
student when he graduates. It would
seem rather that it should be given
him when he matriculates, for it is
especially during his undergraduate
years that he needs a textbook for
living. If we are striving for right
relations with God, the Universe,
and our neighbors; if we would un
derstand the art of living or even
if we would be ordinarily intelligent;
then we will read our Bibles regular-ly.
