diahry and hospitality of the cam
nu as a whole," Fread Weaver, as
sistant dean of students, commented
A special program of lectures, so
cial activities and excursions has al
ready been planned by the Univers
ity inter-American institute, but it
will be the responsibility of the hosts
actually to acquaint the Latin Ameri
cans with the Carolina student body.
The hospitality committee yester-
dav asked for host applications. At
least 110 students are needed one
far each of the delegates. Those in
terested should leave their names and
cualincations at the Dean of Students
office in 205 South.
Since the hosts will serve all six
weeks of the summer school, they will
net act as constant guides. Their
main purpose will be to become per
sonaDy acquainted with their dele
gates and to act simply as friends.
The hosts will probably accompany
their delegates to athletic contests, ad
vise them concerning what Univers
ity classes to attend and provide any
suscellaneous information desired.
In Ehort, their job will be -to so
familiarize the Latin Americans with
the campus in order that they will
leave with a truthful impression of
the nation and American college life,
AH University students, on the other
hand, will have the opportunity to
knew and understand Latin Ameri
cans. Those serving on the hospitality
committee are Bill Joslin, Syd Alex

Results Of TAR HEEL Poll
In Solving Cafeteria Crisis

L. B. Bogerson. assistant controller and business rr - nager of the
University, yesterday agreed to comply with the results of a special
DAILY Tar Heel poll concerning the price systems ii. the Univer
sity cafeteria, or "convince you it's impossible."
Because of rising costs and insufficient patronage, the cafeteria
has been sustaining losses for some time. CoiLructed a year ago
with a WPA grant and borrowed funds, the University enterprise is
supposed to be self-liquidating.
Since the cafeteria must not continue 3" '
to operate at a loss, last Thursday a
new item-pricing plan was initiated
whereby the old 30-cent meal could be
purchased for 27 or 38 cents, depending
upon the selections. Because this new

WASHINGTON, Jan. 6 President Roosevelt today formally rejected the
theory of United States isolation from the international crisis and asked Con
gress to vote billions in war aid to the democracies which are fighting the "new
order of tyranny" of the Axis powers.
Appearing before a joint session of the new Congress to report on the state
of the union, the President was applauded loudly and often as he flayed the
methods and motives of dictators, declared all-out aid to Great Britain, Greece,
and China, and promised unrelenting
gressors and sponsored by appeasers."
In the opinion of veteran foreign affairs experts, he definitely launched the
nation upon a foreign policy which, while not envisioning foreign alliances,
puts the world on notice that this nation will never compromise with the doc
trines of totalitarianism. ' . .
President Roosevelt's appeal to Congress was praised by Administration
supporters at .the capital and denounced by non-interventionists as another
step toward war.
The President's proposal to turn over billions of dollars worth of armaments
to embattled democracies may be carried out under a plan giving the Army and
Navy blanket authorization to make available whatever aid they deem ad
visable, the United Press was informed tonight.
The President put the nation on notice that he will ask Congress for new
taxes to help finance the "multi-billion dollar defense program when he sub
mits his budget message on Wednesday.
