National Board Here
Dr. George Gallup and "William J.
Gaskill of the American Institute of
Public Opinion have given editors of
the Daily Tar Heel and officers of the
Internationals Relations club the go
ahead signal for reestablishment of
the monthly Intercollegiate Gallup Poll
at Chapel Hill.
After months of negotiations with
Carolina students, the directors of the
American Institute of Public Opinion
have given the University their "bless
ing and hearty approval" to take over
the national poll where Princeton uni
versity's magazine, Nassau Sovereign,
left off last year.
The poll will be headed by Walter
Klein of the IRC and Daily Tar Heel.
It will tap student opinion throughout
the country on vital questions in do
mestic and international affairs. Ap
proximately 50 schools will participate,
each with a student board to direct
their local poll.
A national board to manage the en
tire survey will be set up next week to
begin work immediately. Members
will be appointed from the Daily Tar
Heel staff and IRC membership by
Bob Hoke, DTH managing editor, and
Grady Morgan, IRC president.
The Gallup poll will receive in con
fidence the regular service of Gallup
poll questions. The Carolina national
board will add questions of its own be
fore sending them, out to the 50 sub
scribing colleges. When monthly re
sults are returned and tabulated, the
IRC-Tar Heel committee will release
simultaneously college results and re
sults of the regular Gallup poll dis
patched from New York.

Delegates to the University club were
also nominated at the district meetings.
Five were selected from each district,
two of whom will be picked by the Uni

held on the basis of a recent amend

leave Swain hall promptly at 7:45 to
night. Students will join the proces
sion as it swings past fraternity court,
down Franklin, by BVP, and then past
the girls dormitories and sororities
and back to Memorial hall.
University club president Denny
Hammond, refused to reveal the names
of the speakers to appear on the pro
gram saying, "the emphasis will be on
the element of surprise." He had,
however, stated previously that there
would be one speaker from the adminis
tration, one from the Athletic associa
tion, and "an old favorite among Caro
lina students at important pep rallies
during past years."
He refused to state whether or not
Rameses would appear on the pro
gram. "That is to be part of the sur
prise," he said.
Expecting student spirit to be at a
peak at the pep rally, Hammond de
clared that he hoped students would
show all their spirit at the rally and at
the game on Saturday by backing the
team, and not by any "unbecoming
demonstrations" at State.
The rally will be over by 8:45 in
order to permit students to get to

Plans to streamline all campus fund
appeals were considered at yesterday's
World Student Service fund committee
The committee, composed of campus
leaders, voted to submit a bill to the
student legislature calling for the
amalgamation of all campus drives in
to one concentrated community chest.
Dick Railey and Bucky Osborne were
directed to draw up the measure.
Nancy Smith and Bernard Moser,
two committee members-at-large, were
the unanimous selections as co-chairmen
of the group, which was formed
to direct the local drive of the World
Student Service fund. Harry Comer
was elected treasurer of the commit
tee. Appointment of all sub-committees
and officers was left to the discre
tion of the co-chairmen.
It was also decided to limit the com
munity chest fund drive to 12 days.
The plan calls for the appeal to open
on November 16 and end on Thanks
giving day, November 26.
During the hour-long meeting,
Comer pointed out that if Carolina
were to rank as a key college in the
WSSF drive, last year's UNC total of S
$400 for WSSF war relief would have
to be more than tripled. "The nation
wide WSSF goal has been raised to
$300,000, in order to provide for many
new war prisoners, many of them
American. If Carolina is to be a key
college in this giant effort, we should
try -to raise at least $1,000," he said.
Campus Song Hunt
Enters Last Week
As the search for appropriate new
University hymns, or Tar Heel pep or
fight songs entered its second week,
Denny Hammond, University club pres

observance of Greater University day.
In a short time, it has become a high

Hundreds of Girls
In former years, five or six bands,
floats and parades highlighted the oc
casion. Hundreds of girls from the
college at Greensboro added a bright
note to the proceedings.
War has deleted the "processions of
walking, mounted, motorized and
aerial units," and transportation diffi

"hundreds" to "tens," but Bennett pre

U. S. Repulses Jap Thrusts;
Rommel Continues Retreat
MOSCOW, Oct. 30 (UP) The Germans, at a cost of 1,500 men and 11
tanks smashed 50 to 100 yards deeper into north Stalingrad Thursday it was
announced today, but that fourth Soviet setback in the Volga city in two days
was offset by reports that blizzards sweeping west of the Caucasus have
already frozen to death hundreds of Germans.
The German momentum appeared to be diminishing in Stalingrad the last
previous gain having been from 100 to 200 yards and additional cause for
Soviet optimism came in front reports that the Red relief army bearing
down from the north to lift the siege had seized a large town and routed the

GENERAL MAC ARTHUR'S HEADQUARTERS, AUSTRALIA, Oct. 29
(UP) General MacArthur is pouring bomber reinforcements into New
Guinea to help beat off Jap assaults on Guadalcanal, it was learned tonight.
The flyers already have turned four main Jap supply bases into flaming
torches and sunk or damaged 17 Jap ships in that area in the past week.
New Guinea front dispatches said more Allied planes were based on that
island now than ever before and that others were coming. Air activity over
that area is ceaseless and pilots and ground crews are working at top speed
to intensify their striking power in support of the U. S. Marines battling
along the north shore of Guadalcanal, 950 miles to the east.
