Instructor's Out-of- Town Home Razed by Flames
Ignored by Fire Department;
Claim, 'Tod Much Trouble'
By Walter Klein -The
home of J. D. Frost, French and Spanish instructor, at 111
Pickard Lane, just outside the city limits, burned to the ground
The house, owned by Joe Buck Dawson, and all furnishings were
completely destroyed as Frost's mother and a Negro servant vain
ly tried to reach the fire's source in a smoke-filled cellar.
Neither Frost nor the fire department could be reached for 15
minutes because of a busy party-line telephone.
Two hours after the blaze a fireman remarked that Chapel Hill's
fire department hadn't put out the fire because out-of-limit calls
"were too much trouble."
'Going On For Years'
"Yes, I suppose something ought to be done, but this has been
going on for years and nothing has ever happened." That was the
comment of Fire Chief P. R. Perry on this new addition to a long
list of costly destruction which has followed the fire department's
practice of ignoring out-of-town fires.

Student Union Doors
Shut by Priorities
Do you know why Graham Me
morial has only one door in service?
After long and careful investigation
the Daily Tar Heel uncovered the
facts surrounding the mystery. Its
like this: each door swings on a
brass base. The two end doors have
worn their bases to such a degree
that they sag when they are un
locked. Consequently the winter
winds blow through and cause such
a draft in the hall that members of
the Student union complain "Why
.don't they have it fixed?" The ans
wer is National Defense priorities.
The University Purchasing depart
ment cSn't get anymore brass bases
for the doors. Therefore they will
stay locked indefinitely.

IRC to Lead
Formed as Gallup
Survey is Ended
Establishment of an IRC campus
wide poll yesterday followed an an
nouncement of the discontinuance of
Princeton's Intercollegiate Gallup poll.
Dr. George Gallup's Intercollegiate
Survey was stated as "on the rocks"
by the Nassau Sovereign, Princeton
University magazine, in a letter receiv
ed yesterday from J. McK. Bigelow,
editor. ' . '
This discontinuance temporarily cut
off the International Relations club
from the national poll of college stu
dents, with which IRC signed in ' Oe
itober. - " '
Announcement came immediately,
however, that the IRC will continue
tabulating student opinion on inter
national questions through its own poll
Elton Edwards, chairman of the Gal
lup poll committee, will direct the new
IRC poll, with the aid of a staff of 12
members, it was learned.
Roger Mann, IRC president, follow
ing the Gallup announcement, stated
that the new campus IRC poll will not
overlap onto the CPU's "campus issue"
poll. Only international questions will
be printed on IRC questionnaires.
The monthly Gallup system of poll
ing will be maintained involving the
"private" interviewing of 200 repre
sentative undergraduates. The polled
students will be chosen by mathematic
al frequency from the student direc
tory. Different students will be polled
The IRC poll staff includes Paul
Rubenstein, Bob Gutknecht, - Leon
Young, Dick Whittington, Betsy Ross
Howe, Gloria Miller, Dyer Moore, Den
ny Hammond, Bob Michaels, Nancy
Smith, Whitman Osgood and Oran
"The war seems to have forced the
average college publication to cut down
on outside activities," Bigelow stated
in his letter to Mann. "For this reason
we are planning to discontinue the In
tercollegiate Survey indefinitely."

the price that they wish to receive.
The co-op will in turn re-sell them to
other students and return the original
price to the original owner. "Students
who ask too high a price will not sell
their books, but students wanting texts
will be able to save money," said Jones.
The store will be operated mainly
for the exchange of second hand vol

through the co-op, and lower prices for
new volumes will be in order. The Co

thus obtain reduction in wholesale
"This venture is conceived by stu
dents for the welfare of students," said
Jones. "It is a non-profit organization
operated for the students and only
student support can make it an effec

it will overcome the disadvantages, that
handicap local profit-making shops by
keeping the texts on the campus'. Low

students to support the project.

National Symphony Orchestra, Kindler,
Top Entertainment Ticket Here Tonight
Concert at 8:30
In Memorial Hall
By Gene Smith
The National Symphony Orchestra,
which plays a concert here tonight at
8:30 in Memorial hall is today spoken
of as one of the major American sym-.
phony orchestras. Undertaking its
eleventh season of musical activities,
this comparatively young symphony
will play under the conductorship of
Dr. Hans Kindler.
Through "his boundless courage and
enthusiasm of spirit," as .well as
through his musical genius, this con
ductor has in ten years, developed a
group of players into an integrated
symphonic organization, which plays,.
with superb skill. The National Sym
phony's phenomenal development has
caused even Dr. Kindler to describe his
organization as a "prodigy."
During the eleventh season, which
-y: f" J -
opened in Washington November 2, the
orchestra will play over 30 concerts in
its home city and approximately 40 oth
er programs in more than a score of
cities in a dozen states. Each year
thousands of visitors from all over the
world "and from every section of the
United States hear the jorchestra in its
regular concerts in the nation's capital
at Constitution hall in winter, at the
Potomac Water Gate in summer. Radio
broadcasts and the enthusiastic praise
of guest conductors and visiting artists
have spread word of the orchestra's ar
The membership of the orchestra
is comprised largely of choice talent
picked from representative sections of
the United States. . Dr. Kindler re
quired this talent to give- more than
instrumental facility. He demands the
spiritual cooperation and willingness -of
the players to become part of a close
ly knit ensemble. .
