A new sixteen weeks joint
Naval -CPT course in primary
flight instruction has been added
to the already greatly enlarged
CAA program here at the Uni
versity, W. R. Mann, local coordi
nator, announced yesterday.
The new course under the su
pervision of the Naval Flight
Board in Atlanta distinguishes
itself from regular in; pro
grams by covering from 72 to 90
hours of ground work over
period of sixteen weeks as com
pared with the regular program
of 244 hours for eight weeks.
Enlistments in the Naval V-5 train-
ins or as a second-class seaman in V-l
are prerequisites for enrollment in the
Because of the extensive enlarge
ment of plans for regular Civilian Pilot
Training at Horace Williams Airport,
the new Navy primary has limited its
enrollment to 20 men. These men, af
ter contacting Mann at the airport,
will make application at any Navy re
cruiting station and then will be sent
to Atlanta for acceptance by the Naval
Flight Selection Board. If accepted,
they will be ordered to return to Chapel
Hill to begin their training.
Secondary training for CAA will be
instituted for the first time in the Uni
versity this week, as Carolina joins
with Duke in undertaking a program.
The Serv-Air company of Raleigh is
sponsoring the course and supplying the
heavy and higher-powered Waco VPT
220 horsepower planes which are used
in the course as contrasted with the
primary training planes of 65 horse
Ten candidates will be accepted into
the course. Each candidate must be
enlisted in the Navy V-5 reserve.'
James Gordon DeLoach has received
his commission as a Second Lieutenant
in the Army Air forces as a pilot, it
was learned yesterday.
DeLoach, a Carolina alumnus, took
his final training at Turner Field in
Albany, Georgia, and will soon report
for active duty.
New Army Reserve Corps, Naval,

The general student convocation, called last week by vocational guidance
director W. D. Perry, and scheduled for tonight in Memorial hall at 8 o'clock,

the Army, and Sergeant Carl C. Mar
tin of the Marine Corps would also
be on hand to list further details of the
various reserve programs.
Details of the New Army Reserve
plan were released in last Friday's
Tar Heel. Dr. Perry explained that
since the University is limited to a 722
quota under this new plan, students
wishing to enlist must first receive a
letter of permission from the Univer
sity. Applications will be considered in
the order of their arrival, Dr. Perry
said, and should be turned in to his
office at 207 South Building. Students
under 21, wishing to enlist, must re
ceive the approval of their parents, and
blanks for this approval may be ob
tained from the South Building office.
Upon receiving University approval,
and parental permission, students must
then proceed to the Army Reserve of
fice in Raleigh.
No details of the physical require
ments for the new program were avail
able, but it was announced that they
would be considerably less stringent
than the requirements for Air Corps

Student Council Reports
Honor Code Decisions
(Editor's Note This report to the students of the student council de-
cisions of honor violations follows the new policy of Bert Bennett, student
body president, in publishing decisions and circumstances of honor cases.
For editorial comment, see page SI.)
FACTS: A professor turned a pledged paper of one of his students
stating that "I have neither given nor received help on this quiz, but there
are a hell of a lot of students in here who say the same," over to the Stu
dent council. After talking to the student, who said that he saw many
ways of cheating, but was not sure of any names, the entire class was
brought up before the council. The members were all freshmen. There
was no evidence other than the boy's testimony, but over a fourth of the
class admitted that they were guilty of violating the honor system.
DECISION: OPINION: The violators were placed on probation and
failed on the course. Student council probation means that the student
can not represent the University to any outside group; if a student on
probation is in the glee club or is a member of the football team, he
cannot participate when there are spectators other than students.
FACTS: A junior was suspected of violating the honor code in a lab.
lie copied word for word the explanation of various computations of
another student's paper. The teacher requested that everyone was on his
honor to do his own work, and that all papers were to be pledged. The
boy was warned once before by the teacher for copying. The student
admitted his guilt.
DECISION: OPINION: He be placed on probation, failed on the
course and denied 10 hours toward graduation. The latter means that in
stead of having to get 180 hours to graduate the student must have 190
hours, in other words, 10 additional hours will have to be taken before
the student can graduate.
For the student body's sake it is hoped that this will be a lesson.
When asked to pledge work, whether it be a quiz or a lab, the student is
on his honor to abide by the honor system.
For the faculty's sake the hope is reiterated again that all cases be "
immediately turned over to the council, and that they do not endeavor to
handle violations in their own way.

To Be Given
University freshmen and sopho
mores will be required to take an Avia
tion Cadet Qualifying Examination
Saturday morning from 9 to 12, in an
effort to aid Army authorities in stan
dardizing the examination, W. D
Perry, vocational guidance director an
Stressing that the test was compul
sory, Perry emphasized that it was be
ing conducted merely to aid officials in
standardizing these examinations be
fore they are released for official use.
"The taking of the tests will not of
ficially qualify men as Cadets, nor
obligate them in any way for Army
Service," the announcement said.
The examination requiring almost
the three full hours will be given in
Phillips and Venable Hall. Freshman
and sophomore students will be noti
fied by Dr. Perry where to appear to
take .the examination. It was also
stated that Carolina students, planning
to join the armed forces eventually will
be required to take similar examina
tions and practice in the objective
type test is highly desirable.
Army Headquarters declared that in
the past the "majority of Aviation
Cadets have been selected from men
with some college training. It is im
portant that the Army Air Force
know the relative number of college
students who can qualify for Aviation
Cadet training under existing stand
ards. This information will be of value
to college guidance committees as well
as to the Air Forces."
Several other colleges will also con
duct the. examinations, it was stated.
An effort was being made to give the
tests at representative colleges
throughout the United States.
Independent Unit to Broadcast
Campus News, Special Programs
By Phyllis Yates
A permanent, independent broadcasting station which will supply
programs of local interest directly to receiving sets within a two
mile radius of the University has been approved by the Federal
Communications Commission and will be installed soon, officials
They said the new venture would be "a great advance" over the
present studio, which only feeds special programs to transmitters
of radio stations out in the state.
Bulletins, news events and programs
of purely campus interest will ema
nate from the new station, while such
broadcasts are not possible at present.

In Local Rubber Drive
By Marg Johnson
Children, college students, and adults
have rolled in, brought in or sent 1,200
pounds of free donations in their con
tributions to the Victory Rubber cam
paign at the Strowd Motor company

in defense production, over 6,374
pounds have been collected here. Don
ors may receive one penny per pound
for their scrap rubber. Contributions
will be accepted up to July 10, when
Standard Oil trucks will collect the
rubber and take it to defense plants
Most unusual object contributed is
a nuge truck tire, contributed by a
lumber man, and weighing several
hundred pounds. The tire is unique in
that it was made in France, and the
rubber inside is interwoven with thin
wires, it was used for over 2,000 miles.
Heavy tires, rubber floor mats, and
shoe heels comprise the larger part of
the scrap pile. Several students have
contributed chemistry lab aprons, bath
ig caps, and rubber gloves. House
wives have added household articles in
cluding fruit jar cans, hot water bot

in an emergency. Call letters for the
University broadcasting unit have been
tentatively set as WNCU.
The station also wpuld provide valu
able training in every phase of radio
work, including production, announ
cing, business, writing, and technical
work for students interested in con
tinuing with radio professionally.
It will also serve as laboratory for
radio, speech, voice training and drama
classes, in which students would have
an opportunity for practical experience.
The local station will function as
an independent organization, entirely
student-controlled, but will receive help
and suggestions from the Intercolle
giate Broadcasting System, Inc., of
which it will be a member. This na
