White - Phantoms - Seek. Second Victory Over Duke Tonight
Class Reorganization Bill To Start
Today On Way to Legislative Action
Politics May -
By Bucky Harward
Backed by the almost unanimous
endorsement of the Student govern
ment committee, the plan, to reorgan
ize class government starts today
through the ways and means commit
tee on its way to the legislature. J
Discussion in a two-hour session of
the Student government committee
yesterday, when it was formally de
eded to sponsor the bill, indicated
that serious opposition to the propo
sal may develop on the legislature
Members said that political party
leaders in the legislature might op
pose the bill because it would "cut
into the 'gravy trains' and might up
set political promises already made."
Politics Only Possible Opposition
"The only reason the legislature
would oppose the bill is for political
reasons," it was agreed.
The ways and means committee's
preliminary discussion v of the propo
sal Tuesday revealed a 50-50 split of
opinion, but Chairman Terry Sanf ord
stated at the same time that the bill
will go before the legislature when
it meets Monday night.
The plan recommended yesterday
by the Student- government commit
tee includes two proposals which
"will make for more efficiency in ex
ecuting what functions the classes
still have and at the same time leave
class government a chance to vindi
Since the offices of class secretary
and treasurer together carry only a
small number of duties, the first rec
ommendation asks that these two
offices be combined into one.
Aimed at eliminating cumbersome,
deadwood committees, the second rec
ommendation proposes that all class
committees be limited to one admin
istrative body of 15 students appoint
ed and headed by the president.
Eoth parts of the plan were sug
gested by Truman Hobbs, Student
party candidate for student body
president, at the committee's regular

Japanese To Counter Moves
Of ' Anglo-American Bloc'
Plan Is Alleged
By United Press
SHANGHAI, Feb. 20. (Thurs
day) Britain's sensational military
moves in Singapore and elsewhere in
southeast Asia are part of a joint
British-American plan to "strangle
Japan," and will, be countered with
"appropriate measures," Japanese
spokesmen -iSaid today.-' .-------
In broad outline, as the Japanese
saw the rapidly unfolding Far East
picture, the "Anglo-American bloc"
is seeking to achieve these ends :
1. To gain the initiative in east Asia
and stifle Japan's plan to create a
"greater east Asia co-prosperity" be
fore it makes more headway.
2. To bolster the Chinese national
ist government in Chunking so that
it will intensify its war of resistance
against Japan and keep that country
so thoroughly engaged in China that
no activity cani be attempted else
where. 3. To sabotage negotiations in Mos
cow for a Russo-Japanese accord.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 19. The
House today approved a bill authoriz

Guam and Samoa, astride the western

took offense it would be unmerited
meddling in U. S. affairs.
The measure, calling for $245,228,

bases in the Pacific, the Atlantic, and
in continental United States, was
passed by voice vote with Represent

means war, "I am ready to go."
He said during the third day of de
bate on the measure that the bill "is
not neutrality" but "is intervention."
He conceded that the Axis powers may
regard the legislation "as an act of
war, but they do not attack because

the Blue Deyils a second time this
season, they will be within one fairly
easy step to an undefeated Southern
Whether or not the 51-33 margin
piled up by Carolina last February 7
is indicative of the comparative
strength of the two quintets, the White
Phantoms are certainly in for a
tougher time tonight than almost any
time this year. Duke teams, in one
way or another, have usually spoiled
Carolina seasons in basketball for the
last several years.
On their home court and with the
memory of that 18-point margin still
in mind, the Blue Devils will be much
tougher than usual. They returned
from early-season defeats by State,
Wake Forest and Washington and
Lee to win, and now have only to
turn back to Carolina to call their
1 season successful.

"Chicago, and not "New York, is the
city which saw the birth of the sky

throughout th6 middle-west before

The skyscraper, the suburban house,
and industrial building design were
discussed by Hitchcock. He considers
these three featuffires the chief and
only contribution of the United States
