Of Tyranny And
Slavery of World
By United Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 20. Presi
dent Roosevelt today dedicated his precedent-shattering
third term to the
preservation of democracy and vigor
ously rejected the belief of some that
"tyranny and slavery" will dominate
the world of tomorrow.
Before 100,000 persons jammed in
the east plaza of the Capitol to see him
inducted into office again, the Presi
dent warned that "great perils never
before encountered" face democracy
today, and said that the perpetuation
of freedom and liberty furnish highest
justification for every sacrifice made
in the cause of national defense.
"For this we must muster the spirit
of America and the faith of America,"
he said. "We do not retreat. We are
not content to stand still. As Ameri
cans, we .go forward in the service of
our country, by the will of God."
His face grim, his thinning gray hair
rumpled by a stiff wintery wind which
chilled his listeners, he drew cheers
and applause when he safdT slowly and
"Democracy is not dying."

Battle of Music
Limits UNC Studio
To One Record
Earl Wynn, director of the Dramatic
Art department and the productions
broadcast from the University radio
studio in Caldwell hall revealed today
that of the 70 recordings owned by the
studio "The Italians in Algeria" is
the only record that is not ASCAP
Since the beginning of the ASCAP
BMI fight the radio studio has had
some difficulty in broadcasting its
regularly scheduled music programs
and also has had to cancel a radio play
"Three Foolish Virgins" which was to
have musical interludes of original
composition. Fear that the original
music might contain some bars of
ASCAP controlled music which might
cause infringement and a consequent
suit against the stations carrying the
program caused this program to be
cancelled. Last week Liszt's "Sonata
in B Minor" was the last program
carried by WDNC, a member of Na
tional Broadcasters Association, which
carried a credit line for ASCAP.
