SEPT. 20, 1941 THE CAk MN^ TIMES PJuOf TBBtt Welcome N. C. College RECORD ENROLLMENT EXPECTED AT LOCAL COLLEGE THIS YEAR Durham, Sept. 10.—The larg est enrollment in the history of North Carolina Collefife foi Ne* irroes was expected here next week when the local institution opens its doors for the 19J1-42 session. According to advanced reports more applications for the entrance of Freshmen are in the registrars office than ever be fore and college officials were being put to a task to find hous ing space for those desiring en trance. A weJl planned program for the Freshmen class has been set *nd new students will find a hearty welcome awaiting them from both faculty members and student body. Feshmen week will begin on Wednesday, Sep tember 17th with two days being alolted for their registration. Friday, Sept. 19 has been set aside as registration day for ad vanced students. Last year’s enrollment at the college showed a student body of approximately 800, and it is expected to reach near the one- thqusand mark this year. During the school tQrm last year college officias found it necessary to serve six meals a day, the dining room which was built only a few years ago to accommodate around 300 being too small to serve all the board ing students at one tin^e. This year the dinning room has been enlarged to almost three times its origina size, and will be able toke care of any anticipated growth of the college for the next several years to come—it is hoped. Added to courses already es tablished at the North Carolina College is a library science de partment which will offer a de gree in that fidd. Many stu dents are expected to avail themselves of the opportunity of this course. THE HERITAGE OF HISTORY By Dr. Charles Stelzle Historians are familiar with what happened thousands of years ago. They know that even at that time there was almost a complete framework for all our present-day experiments in poli tics, conomics, literature, drama and government. But the average man of today has an idea that the ancients were simply “a bunch of hea then”, ignora,nt and depraved, unmindful of the fact ‘hat how ever limited they may have been in some respects, without the use and enjoyment of the telephone. the radio, the motion picture, the automobile and Ihe airplane, they were really very similar to ourselves. “History repeats itself” only in the application or the results of certain fundamental principles of human behavior. It does not mean that the world is going on like the endless swinging of a pendulum, getting nowhere in l>artieular. The whole charactfr and life of the people as a whole have gone steadily upward, whatever may have been tlie out- Avard form of culture and man ner of living. What is of great est interest and value today is not so much the actions of par ticular individuals in history, as it is the movement and trends of the people as a whole, as hu manity kept marching on. Just what historians 5,000 year hence will think of our pre sent civilization, no man can tell. It would probably be a confus ing picture if they should deal exclusively with what many of us regard as the most important events of the day. Some of our leaders in journalism, politics and industry are saying that the second world war will be “the end of civilization”. There have been many such ‘ ‘ ends ’ ’, but the world has gone on, because be neath these “catastrophes” there has been a basis for pro gress which could not be halted. On the whole. Democracy has steadily made prgress—in reli gion, in education, in industry, in politics, in class distinctions, in the democracy of sexes. These were all part of the same move ment. History has simply been repeating itself. In every case the people have won, although the progress of Democracy must CAMPUS SCENES AT NORTH CAROLINA COLLEGE »■ •«» Three New Men Added To N. C.

Nelson, pastor of the Camphor Memorial Methodist church and publicity chairman of the defense com mittee, gave a brief review ot the committtee’s fight to have Negroes enlisted in Minnesota’s home defense program. Follow ing this, Frank L.

' Gov. Stassen’s address for the most part was given over to the ctiing of instances to show that he is not and never has been prejudiced nor ever done any thing in his public career that could be labeled discriminatory to the Negro. In answer to the governor’s statement that he would work with the committee to make a test case of the discriminatory army code, Cecil Newman, edi- or and publisher of the St. Paul Recorder and Siwkesman in Min neapolis, challenged the govern or to strike the first blow in the fight by the issuance of an or der to the effect that Negroes be inculcated in Minnesota’s home defense, to which the gov ernor replied that fTe could not do that.
