Surveyed by IRC
A large crowd attended the IRC
meeting Monday evening to hear the
discussion, "State of the Nations," a
survey of the strength of England,
Russia and America.
It was the 'opinion of all, that, "an
immediate war concerning any of these
three nations is not possible, but
that the nation which recovers first
from its war losses will be in a posi
tion of world leadership.
The general consensus is as follows:
that reform" must come from within
the United Statese before we can suc
essfully exert any strong influence
upon the rest of the world; that
England is politically stronger than
we, though industrially weaker; that
Russia, though an imminent menace
to world peace through her com
munistic efforts, is nevertheless in
capable of using military force to
back her demands.
The subject "will be further ex
panded upon in the IRC meeting next
Monday night, in Roland Parker
lounge, Graham Memorial.

Earth Being Showered
With Tail of Comet
By United Press
You probably don't know it but
Mother Earth is tangling with the
tail of a comet and the sparks are
Astronomers say the world is mov
ing into the slip stream of the so called
Giacobini-Zinner comet. This heavenly
speed demon skids in a long parabolic
arc around the sun completing a cir
cuit every six years and 212 days.
Just seven days ago this comet
went hooting by the earth at a dis
tance of about 31 million miles. And
that, in celestial terms, is a fairly
close shave. Now, the world is mov
ing in where the comet passed leav
ing its tail spread out several hundred
million miles behind.
In that tail are thousands of me
teors, many of which will be attract
ed by the Earth's pull of gravity.
They'll burn when they hit the Earth's
atmosphere. That's when you'll start
to see the shower of sparks. The
astronomers say that the show start
ed last night but that tonight will
be a lot better for a good show if the
weather is fair.

literary mavement, founded by W. B.

The theatre, receiving a small sub

Officials Explain Problems

Room Rent, Construction, Budget, Books, etc.
By Bill Sexton
As a part of a "tremendous effort on the part of the University,"
Chancellor Robert B. House asked the student body to support a
four- year medical school and hospital last night.
House, who advised his listeners to "always let your voices be
heard by the University' discussed the medical expansion pro
gram, the record biennial budget request, Kenan stadium seating,
dormitory rents, Christmas vacation schedule, and many other
: subjects questioned by students at a

school of the kindergarten type, for.
which there is a minimum charge.
The Methodist Church will offer a

leaving her child there.

Other Officials Appear
He appeared with C. E. Teague, as
sistant controller and business "man
ager; F. C. Shepard, veterans advisor;
and H. II. Ritchie, manager of the
Book Exchange, in an informal ques-tion-and-answer
session, the first of
three planned this year by the Vet
One of the first queries concerned
the unfortunate Kenan stadium seat
ing situation. "It's one thing I really
know little about," said House. "But
I believe a great error was made by
not. starting the student section with
the middle line of Kenan stadium. I
don't know whether it would be pos
sible to revise and renumber tickets
without incurring law suits."
He declared that the necessity of
travel on New Year's day following
Christmas vacation "seems silly to
me." But. he added that the schedule
committee had sought to "equalize the
terms" and allow time for a necessary
12-week summer school. There was
no indication given that the present
schedule might be revised.
In his opening address the Chancel
lor complimented the UVA for its
"clear, well-thought" approach to cam
pus problems since its organization
and asked that students with any com
plaint 'clear rdeas with each other and
through your organization" before act
ing. But he made plain that anyone
"with information and serious pur
pose should speak," because "you know
where the heart of the University is
concerning its students."
Planned for Two Years
"We have planned for the past two
years for the record enrollment this
year and are doing the best we can,
regardless of the disorganized con
dition in Chapel Hill. I commend your
spirit on beginning the year." .
Discussing the record request for
appropriations, Chancellor House said
he felt that the budget was "fair,
sound, and reasonable," and, for the
most part, ''obtainable."
He explained that though much of
the increased request was for emer
gency measures representing the bar
est minimum to accommodate an un
precedented enrollment, a great por
tion was the basis of a permanent im
provement program, "the 'first, if
passed, in eight years."
State College Receives
Diesel Equipment, Gift

The Navy Department has given
complete title of the Diesel engines
and engineering equipment, that made
State College one of the chief Naval
Diesel training centers in the nation
during the war, o the Consolidated
University of North . Carolina for
State College, it was announced today
by President Graham.
The value of the property given is
estimated at $2,800,000.
At the close of the war, a move was
made to use the equipment as a part
of a peacetime Naval training pro
gram at some Navy center. Presi
dent Graham, however, made an
analysis to Secretary of Navy James
B. Forrestal, saying that it would best
serve the purposes of the Navy,
American industry, and higher educa
tion in America to leave the engines
and equipment at State for teaching
