GPU Performance Hits New
A question which has been asked frequently during the last few
weeks on this campus is: "How can a small group of students
independent of the University bring to Chapel Hill such speakers
as Franklin D. Roosevelt, James Farley, Frances Perkins, Nor
man Thomas, Earl Browder, Frank Knox and Tom Girdler?"
Made up of 25 students of the Uni
Student Body Urged
To Arrive Early ,
' In order that they may practice
a college yell to be given for the
benefit of the President's party and
a large radio audience, all students
are urged by the CPU and Cheer
leader Pat Patterson to assemble in
their reserved seats, South side, by
3:45 this afternoon.
The cheer will be given as soon
as the President has taken his seat
on the platform. It will be followed
immediately by "Hark the Sound"
which the students will sing and
the band play. ,
TO PLAY TODAY
WPA Negroes Sing
On Music Program
Music will play its part today when
President Roosevelt arrives to de
liver his address in Kenan stadium
The University band will assemble
on the field in front of the platform
at 3:45 this afternoon and play until
the arrival of the presidential party.
As the party reaches the gate, the
band will swing into "Hail to the
Chief" and will continue to play until
the President is seated. This will be
followed by a cheer from the stu
dent section of the stands and "Hark
the Sound." After the President has
finished speaking, "The Star
Spangled Banner" will be played.
Also on the program will be a
chorus of 85 WPA Negro singers,
factory workers from Winston-Salem
and Durham. They will be seated on
the field near the concrete stands
and will sing two Negro spirituals.
The University Glee club has been
asked to sit down toward the front
of the student section and lead in the
singing of "Hark the Sound."
W . V
versity, the Carolina Political union
has achieved a remarkable record in
its work, carried on without any of
ficial administration assistance, of
bringing important men and women
to Chapel Hill without paying either
their expenses or an honorarium, and
then, following their addresses, sub
mitting them to a cross-examination
of the type that only a college audi
ence can give.
Depending upon campus donations
and members' dues for its support,
the union has drawn for itself a nation-wide
reputation for presenting
on a non-partisan basis so many well
known speakers of nearly as many
contrasting beliefs and viewpoints.
Only group of its kind in the Unit
ed States, the CPU embodies an at
tempt on the part of at least one seg
ment of the nation's youth to study
intelligently the processes of govern
ment an element which is considered
essential in any well-working democ
racy. It was with this theme in mind
that a group of students under Dr.
E. J. Woodhouse got together in the
spring quarter of 1936, led by Floyd
Fletcher, a senior from Raleigh, and
formed the Carolina Political union.
Frank C. McGlinn, of Philadelphia,
on being chosen the first chairman,
spent the rest of that year solidifying
the organization and objectives of the
union. After a study of the Oxford,
Cambridge, Harvard, and Dublin
unions was made, a constitution was
adopted providing for a membership
of 25 students with Professor Wood-

Continuing its traditional policy in
maintaining a balance of opinion, the
Carolina Political union has issued a
list of tentative and definite speakers
lined up to speak to the students.
January will be a banner month, with
four national figures giving varied
views on the political status of the
nation both at home and abroad. Dur
ing the following months, the union
will attempt to maintain the number
of speakers per month at that level.
Miss Frances Perkins, secretary
of labor in President Roosevelt's
cabinet, will address the student body
on the labor differences evident in
America today on January 11. The
difficulties of the Congress of In
dustrial Organizations and the Amer
ican Federation of Labor will be ex
plained by the only woman member
of the cabinet.
Boake Carter, national network

The other January speaker is
Glenn Frank, noted journalist and
political authority, who has turned
his energies to lecturing in behalf of
the Republican cause. It is expected

the President and his party will make
a short tour of the campus along.,
Pittsboro road, Cameron avenue, Ra

going to the stadium. The trip from

one and one-half hours, with the 20

ing as soon as the President's spe
cial train arrives in Sanford.
SUBJECT OF SPEECH
President Roosevelt has yet to an
nounce the subject of his speech,
which is sponsored by the Carolina
Political union, but will more than
likely talk on one of four topics:
American foreign relations; the
administration's legislative plans for
the 1939 Congress; the economic situ-'-ation
of the South; and his opinion
of the results of. the national elec
tion in September. Foreign relations
are pertinent, since recent interna
tional developments and the with
drawal of Ambassador Hugh Wilson
from Germany and the' resulting with
drawal of the German ambassador to
the United States, Hans Dieckhoff.
In case of severe weather condi
tions, the locale of the address will
be removed to Woollen gymnasium,
but on questioning the United States
weather bureau in Raleigh last night,
the Daily Tar Heel learned that fair
and warmer weather was in prospect
It is not usually the custom of the
University to announce the con
ferring of an honorary degree, but
this was set aside in the case of
Roosevelt. Governor Clyde" R. Hoey,
after welcoming visitors to the state
and the University, will -present Dr.
Frank Graham, who in turn will con
fer the honor on Roosevelt.
CPU members were busy yesterday
arranging final plans for the day's
program, which will begin with the
