They said the Turkish government's position is that defense of the vital strait should be internationalized as specified in the expired Montreux Con vention. Official quarters here were visibly depressed by the Soviet note, accord ing to these sources. They claimed that the note portends an "abnormal occurrence" but they expressed doubt that Russia would at tack Turkey.

Baker said in a radio address that the bumper corn and wheat crops was making it easier for farmers to feed livestock and "there is good reason to expect improved-supplies; in -both beef and pork, beginning with the later part of October." "Supplies should continue to be fairly good from then on through the first of the year,", he said. "Through the spring of 1947, there will prob ably be little variations up and down, mainly seasonal in character." Jackson Denies Leaving Nuernburg Trial Post Nuernberg, Sept. 28 (UP) Su preme Court Justice Robert H. Jack son said today he had no intention of leaving the Court to become U. S. Am bassador to London. "There is no basis for any specu lation about my being appointed Am bassador or any other office however attractive," said Jackson, who was chief U. S. prosecutor at the Nuern berg war crimes trials. "I have no intention of deserting the duties I assumed m going on tne Supreme Court for any other public post." Earlier Nuernberg court officials said Jackson "may issue a statement in reference to the court of bt. James. That was taken to mean an announce ment about the vacant ambassadorship to Britain which W. Averell Harri man left to become Secretary of Commerce. . MM - .. - i i.i. .

Eisenhower Advocates Outlawing Atom Bomb Frankfurt, Germany, Sept. 28 (UP) General Dwight D. Eisenhow er said today that "Humanity is in telligent enough to do away with war," and to that end both the atom bomb and war should be outlawed. Bevin, Stalin Agree That War Is Unlikely London, Sept. 28 (UP) Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin and Premier Josef Stalin were agreed today that a further war is unlikely at present. "We recently had a statement from Russia that they don't anticipate that further war is likely at present,' Bevin told a group of his Parliamen tary constituents last night. "I don t think so either, and I don't know any body who is asking for war." Bevin urged an end to the "war of nerves" as a step toward true peace. He said he detected a "little lifting of the clouds of possions and prejudices.

The Carolina Athletic Association widened the ever-growing breach between the University and its students yesterday be tween the hours of two-thiriy and five. . Over 6,500 students were jammed into seats in Itenan Stadium from the forty-two yard line to ten yards behind the goal line, in the far corner of the stands. ; It is difficult to understand the reasoning behind the plan to put Carolina students, who support the football teams through thick and thin, into the worst seats in the stadium. No Carolina student sat on the fifty yard line! It is likewise difficult to un derstand why Carolina students are forced to, sit in temporary stands. -It is our feeling that the teams that represent Carolina on the playing fields, represent the University of North Caro lina. And that means, primarily, the students on the campus at Chapel Hill. Why then, are the choice seats on the fifty yard line " sold on 'the6pen market' to' tne public and alumni? NO CARO LINA STUDENT SAT ON THE FIFTY YARD LINE ! That's an almost unbelievable fact. Students who arrived at Kenan Stadium an hour before game time were handed "reserved" tickets ... behind the goal line. In former years Carolina students sat within the two forty yard lines straddling the choice fifty-yard line seats, with the faculty and University employees sitting between the 40 and 35 yard lines, on the same side of the field. Why has the AA abandoned that policy? Why, with every one of Carolina's almost 7,000 students paying for their AA books (which brings in twice as much money as in former years) does the Athletic Association feel it necessary to squeeze students into poor seats ; in order to take in more folding money from the public who , See SEATING, page U Most Talked-About Young Miss To Make Debut Soon . . .

Sparked by the brilliant run ning and passing of Richkas and the glue-fiingered ability of Bozeman, the Wolfpack attack proved too much for a bewildered Devil outfit. The first score came in the first period when Duke recovered a State fumble on the latter's 7-yard line, and hit paydirt on an end run. Gantt's attempted conversion failed, and the scoreboard read Duke 6, State 0. In the third period, State .kicked from their own 29-yard line and re covered the fumbled ball on the Duke 45. Three short passes into the flat caught Duke off guard, and netted the Pack 20 yards. Again taking to the air, Richkas completed a pass to the Duke 5. A running attempt, was smothered behind the line for a ten yard loss, but on the next play an other pass from Richkas and a sensa tional catch by Bozeman tied up the score at 6-6. The attempt at conver sion failed as the period ended. In the final minutes of the fourth quarter, Turner of State heaved a long one to Blomquist, who was downed on the Blue Devil 40-yard line. Richkas romped for ten more yards, then passed to the 4. Richkas then tore around left end for the second State touchdown with only 10 seconds left to play, and a successful conver ge DEACS, page 3 the way to an even greater score. Not only was the Carolina offense stopped cold in the final two periods as Tech converted two blocked kicks into touchdowns but the Tar Heels narrowly missed defeat when VPI failed to cover five yards to paydirt in three downs and then missed a field goal shortly before the final gun. Score in Seven Minutes It took the Tar Heels just over seven minutes after Ernie William son's opening kickoff to register their first score of the 1946 campaign. Charlie Justice's 53-yard punt that stopped dead on Tech's three-yard stripe pushed the Gobblers back on their collective heels and after a re turn punt that Justice carried back to Tech's 40-yard line, the Tar Heels showed their power. A double reverse, Hoaea Rodgers to Justice to Jim Camp, was good for 15 yards and a Justice pass to George Sparger gave Carolina a first down on the ten-yard marker. Bill Maceyko re placed the Asheville speedster at this point and tossed to Art Weiner, an other replacement, who romped over unmolested. Bob Cox place-kicked the extra point to make the score 7-0. The rest of the first period was a series of quick-kicks, with Justice again punting inside the Tech ten yard line. The quarter ended as Harry Walton punted out for the Gobblers. On the first play of the second stan za, Justice lived up to his advance no tices on broken-field running as he slashed off right tackle and speeded 68 yards to paydirt, aided by beau tiful blocking. Bob Cox again con verted to raise the count to 14-0. Thereafter, for the rest of the game, the Tar Heel offense was continually repulsed with Carolina moving inside the VPI 40-yard line only once.

Citing the past history of the Mag-3 azine, which has included such out standing literary men as Thomas Wolfe and Paul Green, Jacobson said that he "felt certain this year's rec ord enrollment can provide Carolina with many writers of outstanding merit." To give impetus to develop ment of such talent, a large number of forthcoming Carolina Magazine pages have been tentatively reserved for publication of student-written fic tion, humor and poetry. "We are determined to make this an outstanding year in Magazine his tory," Jacobson declared. "I feel that encouragement of new talent is one of our important jobs and so I hope to devote a great deal of attention to uncovering of the many fine writers who undoubtedly have entered UNC in this fall's 7,000 enrollment." The first organizational meeting of the Carolina Magazine is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock in the publication's office on Graham Memorial's second floor. All students interested in the many varied phases of Magazine work were invited to attend the meeting. Impor tant posts in the literary, art, pho tography and advertising staffs still remained to be filled with new and old staff members up for consideration. Jacobson's appointment of Betty Ann Green as Literary Editor is an indication of the importance he at taches to this phase of Magazine work. While Miss Green will be in general charge of the fiction phase, all stu dents interested in writing for the Magazine were urged to Visit its of fice on Graham Memorial's second floor. Magazine editors will be at the office every afternoon from two to four o'clock.
