Own Scrap Drive
Due to the lack of a truck, the scrap
collections, long scheduled for "today"
were not made yesterday but "definite

statement made by Bob Spence, chair
man of the campus scrap committee.
Dormitories in the former upper

useless scrap and piled it out in front.
Whether the scrap will.be given to the
town pile or to the students' bin could

At Philosophy Forum
"Czechoslovakia is the key issue in
this war as in the last," stated Dr.
W. Preston Warren speaking last
night before the second Philisophy
Forum of the year.
K "In this war Czechoslovakia was the
real starting point and the first great
center of resistance. Czechoslovakia
was in the last war and is in this re
presentative of all nations that stand
for human rights on higher planes of
living," continued Dr. Warren.
It was 24 years ago come this Wed
nesday that the Czech people took over
their government in a bloodless revo
lution, Warren asserted. The leader
was Thomas Garringue Masaryk, a
professor of philosophy who without
sufficient money, personal influence,
and sufficient following challenged the
power of the Hapsburg Regime when
it was at its crime. '"' "Masaryk is
called not the father of Czechoslo
vakia but the 'Little Father' as Jan
Pulaski, a member of the Awakeners
of Bohemia, is considered the real
'Father' of Czechoslovakia." ;
"Masaryk," said Dr. Warren, "was
the, first of the world's statesmen to

recognize tnat .tne worm war was
not a war between the British govern

Karloff with Dracula
For 'Arsenic' Drama
By Leah Richter
The Carolina Playmakers didn't
have a Karloff to try out for the famed
Jonathan role in the melodramatic
"Arsenic and Old Lace," but was for
tunate enoughto have a reincarnation
of - Dracula, alias Arthur Conescu, to
do the part. : "
Without the skill of the unskilled
plastic, surgeon of the play, Dr. ""Ein
stein, Conescu found it nearly impos
sible to make up like Karloff, so he
studied Bela Lugosi and succeeded.
The critics vowed John Barrymore
held audiences down as John Barry-
more in "The Royal Family" and "My
Dear Children," that Alexander Wooll
cott stole Monte Wooley's part of Alex
ander Woollcott while touring "The
Man Who Came to Dinner," and that
Boris Karloff looked so much like Boris
Karloff in "Arsenic and Old Lace" that
goose pimples burst out on him.
These types of plays and actors to
fit the parts are the device to which
harried playwrights have resorted in
later years in a desperate attempt to
fill the box-offices of Broadway with

extended until this Saturday, be
cause only half the upperclassmen

President Denny Hammond called
the meeting to consider recommenda
tions made by the membership com
mittee for amending the membership
articles of the constitution. Changes
were necessitated by the Navy's oc
cupation of University dormitories and
the redistribution of lower quadrangle
residents to other dorms, town houses,
fraternities, and sororities.
The club voted to waive the provi
sions of article six which stated that
members elected to the club would be
automatically dropped from the rolls if
they changed their places of residence.
The action was taken to permit stu
dents who were elected to represent
dormitories now occupied by the Navy
to remain in the club. A motion was
passed to establish a policy of consid
ering these members as the represen
tatives of their new residences or dis
tricts where no representative has yet
Clauses which exempted graduate
dormitories, Carr, Smith, Whitehead
and Kenan from representation in the
University club were struck out since
these dormitories now house under
graduates as well as graduates.

was raised from two to eight. Willie

In Solomons; Battle Rages
WASHINGTON, Oct. 21 (UP) Jap forces have sunk two American de
stroyers. and resumed their attacks on the Guadalcanal airfield, but American
flyers are still hitting back hard, the Navy reported tonight in a communique
which indicated the main battle of the Solomons is not yet joined.
It noted ominously that "large numbers" of enemy warships are still poised
in the northerly Solomons apparently awaiting the signal for anticipated
all-out Jap attempts to recapture positions lost to the Marines August 7.
The Navy said the destroyers Meredith and O'Brien two of the newest of
the American fleet were sunk by enemy action "within the last few days."
It said reports on casualties have not been received, but it is believed all of
the O'Brien's personnel and most of the Meredith's were rescued.
, There was no immediate estimate of the number of blue jackets aboard the
destroyers. It was not revealed how they were lost whether by sea or air
action. They brought to 12 the number of American warships and auxiliaries
lost in the Solomons campaign.
