op Man of India
lakes IRC Address
I nd a's number one representative to
the United States, Sir Girja Bajpai,
will rtnort on India's quest for-inde
pen ece from the stage of Memorial
hall ..onight at 8:30.
Earlier reports said that Dean of
Students Francis Bradshaw would in
troduce Bajpai, but this could not be
confirmed last night.
Tonight's will be the famous envoy's
first important address since early
summer. According to newspaper re
ports, it will be his most complete
statement on the present Indian crisis.
His exact stand is still a mystery to
International Relations club officials
and the campus at large. Before the
present uprisings in India, Bajpai told
the press that he strongly favored pro
posals of Sir Stafford Cripps.
Bajpai is slated to arrive in Chapel
Hill this morning with his wife and
embassy attaches. A private IRC lun
cheon has been scheduled. During the
afternoon Sir Girja will view the Caro
lina campus and the Navy Pre-flight
school, and will give out newspaper in
terviews. At 6 :30 state dignitaries, University
administrators and student leaders will
attend the IRC banquet at the Carolina
Inn. The Indian emissary will speak
informally at the banquet, Grady Mor
gan, IRC president, stated.
Speech time is 8:30. An open debate
period is set to follow the address, and
a reception in Graham Memorial's
main lounge has been arranged for the
Indian party and students after the
Bajpai has been in the United States
for less than a year. He brought with
him complete facts on the military,
political and industrial situations in
India. Since then he has kept in con
stant touch with India's leaders
through direct diplomatic channels.
An Oxford graduate, Bajpai speaks
English and French fluently. He is
an unofficial member of the Pacific "War
council, and is noted for his long diplo
matic conversations with President
Roosevelt. Throughout his long career
as the top representative of India,
Bajpai has known intimately many of
the greatest living leaders of the
world's governments. He is now a
member of the viceroy's cabinet.

Sir Girja Bajpai, addresses the Uni

8:30 on India's struggle for imme
Phi Defeats Bill
Members of -the Philanthropic
sembly last night defeated their bill
calling for immediate Indian independ
ence, by a vote of 19 to 8.
"I believe that India should be given
independence immediately in order to
get her full support against the Jap
anese," said Dr. E. E. Ericson. Point
ing out that the average Indian would
not fight for the English because the
English have done nothing to give
them a cause to fight for, Dr. Ericson
said that so far the English have done
nothing but promise them independ
ence for years, and they are tired of
hearing that and really want action.
The other side of the picture was
presented by Dr. R. C. MacKinney. He
said that to give India independence
now is to invite danger and perhaps
the loss of the war.
Dr. MacKinney said that the lack
of a very strong government in India
now would cause iiceii icYuiuwuu
tween the central government and the
princes of the various states. The Brit
ish could not be sure the Indian gov
ernment would cooperate with them in
the fight against the Japanese, and
that probably there would be a com
plete revolt against the English, he
A middle-of-the-road attitude was
taken by Dr. H. D. Buchanan, who
presented the economic condition of
India. He said that most of the busi
nessmen in India were of course Eng
lish but the Indians were penetrating
into that field and in some cases tak
ing the business over entirely. Most of
industry of India is situated in the
northeastern part within easy reach of
.TnrnPSA-held Burma. The coal ana
steel industries are mainly centered
around Calcutta which is not far from
the Burma border line.
To Raleigh Planned
After several days of hard work,
Jack Stoddart and J. G. Carden have
rounded up and chartered enough
trucks to take a good portion of the
student body to Raleigh for the UNC-
State game Saturday.
It has also been announced that the
University band will go to Raleigh in
its entirety and present plans call for
a giant motorcade to be led by the
band, followed by the trucks and any
cars from Chapel Hill whose owners
plan to make the trip.
When the motorcade arrives at Ral
eigh, Carolina students will form in
a body and parade to their seats at
The trucks will assemble in front
of the YMCA and will leave .prompt
ly at 12 a. m. Saturday. Round trip
fare will be 85 cents and students are
urged to call at the lobby of the YM
CA between 2 and 5 p. m. today
through Friday in order to sign up
for the trip. There are not quite
enough trucks to take all the students
who will probably want to go. Con
sequently ticket sales have been put
on a first come, first served basis,
Stoddart and Carden also warned that
contrary to previous announcements,
they will not call at each dorm to
Commenting on whether or not co
eds will be allowed to go, Stoddart
said, "They certainly are and several
have already signed up to go. We wel
come and urge any more that want to
to join the party."
He also added, "Here is a good
chance for almost every student in
the University to attend the game

To Open Tomorrow Morning
For Frat Pictures
Karl Bishopric, photography editor
of the Yackety-Yack announces that
all fraternity snapshots for the frater
nity pages in the annual must be turn
ed in immediately.
Ray Tucker, nationally recognized
columnist has "definitely accepted1
the Carolina Political union's invita
tion to speak in Chapel Hill Decem
Promising to give "a strictly off
the-record report of national affairs,"
Tucker completes the CPU list of
presentations for the fall quarter.
Heading the group is Robert Minor,
assistant general secretary of the
Communist party, speaking on No
vember 9. Following Minor is Ralph
Bard, assistant secretary of the Navy.
Tucker, known nationally as
columnist, is the author of the synodi
cated column "Whirligig", which is
published in newspapers throughout
the United States. Although no defi
nite topic for his speech has been an
nounced, it is assumed by CPU of
ficials that Tucker will discuss up to
the minute details of the National
war effort and the political front.
As a part of the recently inaugu
rated discussion program of the CPU
panel on "The Negro in War and
Industry" will be presented in the
main lounge of Graham Memorial
Sunday night at 8 o'clock. The prob
lem of how to best integrate 13,000,-
000 Negroes into the war effort des
cribed as being one of the most im
portant questions in the country to
day has been under discussion by
the union for the past three weeks.
At a meeting Sunday night in which
Dean James T. Taylor of North Ca
rolina College for Negroes presented
a short talk on the Negro problem, he
said, "the question is important for
s- "First, this country is going to need
every available source of man power
before the war is over. This not only
includes the white race but those
several million members of the colored
race in the United States.
"Secondly, the Negro problem is
acute and must be faced now because
it is a world-wide problem. In Japan,
India and China we are faced with
the color problem. Japan today is
using the racial discrimination being
practiced in the United States as a
weapon to combat the United Nations
in the Far East.
"Third, we must in winning this
war be sure that we save democracy
for ourselves, and not exterminate it
in the process of winning it. Too much
is at stake. Too many lives are being
lost, and money being spent, to risk
winning the war but losing the peace."
Ip. the panel Sunday night the CPU
will present Dr. Howard Odum and
Dr. Guy Johnson, members of the Uni
versity Socioligy department, Dean
Taylor of NCCN and Dr. David Jones,
president of Bennett college in a
panel discussion on the negro prob
lem. Dr. Odum, recently returned from
an inter-racial conference in Atlanta
and will be able to present data and
instances which have served to bring
about the present negro situation
The newly completed student din
ing hall in the banquet room of the
Carolina Inn will open at 7:15 for
breakfast tomorrow morning under
the usual food for cost plan.
The three-weeks-old Pine room will
be closed to students following dinner
tonight when the Navy will take it as
a cadet and officer's mess hall. In an
effort to carry University feeding of
students when the Pine room leaves
off, the Carolina Inn was chosen as
a temporary dining hall until Swain
hall can be completed.
Counter lines and added kitchen
facilities have been installed together
with additional help to serve the ex
pected student rush.
Hours for student meals have been
changed to fit campus needs and will
not follow the old Pine room schedule.
Breakfast will be served from 7:15 to
8:00 a. m., lunch from 11:30 until 2
p. m., announced L. B. Rogerson, Uni
versity business manager.
Under the new plan, meals will be
served cafeteria style, offering stu
dents a wide choice of foods. Prices
will be kept "as low as possible,"
The Inn is equipped to handle 135
students and it is expected that due to
the lengthening of meal-time hours,
the seating capacity will equal that
of the Pine room.
The Carolina Inn will continue its
regular cafeteria service as usual and
students are free to patronize either
of the dining halls.
With a better location, low prices,
arid earlier hours, University officials
working on the transformation ex
pect a large turnout. Students will
continue to eat at the Inn until Swain
hall is completed December 1.
Age-Old Precedent Ends;
Fall Germans Now Open
Another of the age-old precedents on campus will be broken Friday, Novem
ber 13, when the German club will let down its bars and open the doors of its
first dance of Fall Germans to the entire campus. Admission price has not
been set as yet.
Lieutenant Stanley Brown and his Fort Bragg orchestra will provide the
music for the dance. Brown's band made its campus debut last spring and was
well received. The band is composed of former big time musicians now in
the Army. Brown's repertoire includes a majority of sweet arrangements, but
the band can kick and does on many occasions. An outstanding feature of the
group is the impersonation of all the top name bands.
The Saturday night dance, following the football game with Duke, willcy jeffris,
be closed to German club members.

To Honor System
The Di Senate last night passed a
bill to petition the faculty to cooperate
more closely with the honor system.
Fred Kanter, head of a special in
vestigating committee, stated that the
failures of the faculty-student cooper
ation has been misunderstood. He
pointed out that many professors stay
in classrooms during quizzes to an
swer student questions.
It was also shown that seating of
students in alternate seats was to
prevent inadvertibly seeing another
person's paper. The committee asked
for complete understanding by both
the faculty and the student body be

Alec Templeton arrived at Chapel j
Hill with his wife and his manger yes
terday afternoon and immediately pro
ceeded to Memorial hall where he spent
more than an hour at the piano.
With his charming English accent,
Templeton expressed how much he en
joyed playing for college students and
boys at the Army posts. He said that
his preference was due to the fact that
students are more expressive and do
not hesitate to show their reactions. He
also commented upon the fact that it
was gratifying to notice how much
genuine interest was shown by them
in the first half of his program which
is devoted to more serious music.
One of Templeton's good friends is
Kay Kyser and between them they try
to decide who is King of Corn. Both
feel they are eligible for the title and
spend enjoyable times together debat
ing the question. Templeton went so
far as to plant his own corn this sum

"Mozart a La Mode," one of the
pieces on the program last night, is
one of the series that Templeton has
continued after he started off with
"Bach Goes To Town." The latter was
the first modernization of the masters
of the 18th century. It was Temple
ton then who started the fad of putting
the masters on the Hit Parade.
Templeton more or less reversed the
procedure m a short interview with
him yesterday afternoon it was he
who asked the questions. He was in
terested in the Playmaker production

when it was going to be performed. He
made inquiries about the reason for the
name Tar Heel when he was informed
that the Daily Tar Heel was the name
of the newspaper, and smiled when two
