Opposing Candidates Taylor, Hobbs
rse Class Reorganization Bill
Aims of Measure
Ferebee Taylor and Truman Hobbs,
jpposing candidates for president of
ie student body, yesterday gave un
jaalified endorsement to the class re
garization bill now pending before
ihe student legislature.
Meanwhile, political leaders main
ined their opposition and the warm
est legislative debate of the year was
predicted for Monday night, when the
bin will be brought to the floor by
the ways and means committee.
The plan, which originated in a dis
cussion meeting of the Student Gov
ernment committee last Monday night,
is aisied at promoting more efficiency
ia class government by combining the
oSces of secretary and treasurer in
class and limiting each class'
coxsiittees to one administrative body
of 15 students.
If passed, its supporters hold, the
bill will disrupt political gravy trains
and unannounced nominations.
Both Members of Government
Both Hobbs and Taylor are mem
"bers of the Student Government com
xittee and it was Hobbs who suggest
ed both parts of the plan in the
meeting. . ' " ' --
AItkoBgh-bsnt -from the Monday
night meeting, Taylor joined the
xmmittee in its almost unanimous
decision last Wednesday to sponsor
he bill in the legislature.
Taylor predicted yesterday that
passage of the bill "will be a definite
step forward in the direction of more
active and more efficient class govern
ment" Both candidates agreed that the of
fices of secretary and treasurer should
be combined because the duties of
those two offices have become so lim
ited. "There is a real threat to student
government in a uselessly long ballot,"
Hcbbs added. "The large number of
ocers to be elected and the knowl
edge in the student body that at least
seme of these offices have negligible
cities may well cause an attitude of
indifference on the part of the cam
pis." Both nominees also approved the
lisiiiaticn of the current oversized
Taylor asserted that this measure,
K passed, will result in "the elimina
tion of so many political appoint
ments which have heretofore burden
ed the committees with deadwood and
prevented their proper functioning.

Nazis Move into Spain,
Reported Across Danube
By United Press
MADRID, Feb. 21. Advance liason officers of the German army arrived
late today in Santander to prepare for. the imminent arrival of technical
units of Adolf Hitler's armed forces on a "peaceful mission" to alleviate
suffering in the devastated city of northern Spain.
The German column, estimated to number at least 500 German army tech
nicians and soldiers, with complete engineering, hospital, and field kitchen
equipment, was expected to reach the-
hurricane-torn, fire-swept city on the
Bay of Biscay tonight.
The German forces, moving into
Spain from their bases in the Nazi-
occupied portion of southern France
along the seacoast, will remain in
Santander" so long as they are need
ed," it was said.
It had not been reported tonight
whether the German forces had cross
ed the Spanish-French frontier ' at
Irun, 125 miles east of Santander,
but their arrival in the wrecked
Spanish city, with its 30,000 homeless
and hundreds of razed buildings, was
believed to be only a matter of hours.
Official quarters in Madrid indicat
ed tonight that alarmed "reaction
abroad" might influence the govern
ment of Generalissimo Francisco
Franco to call off the German mili
tary aid at the last minute and polite
ly ask the Nazis to countermand the
dispatch of the units to Santander.
BUDAPEST, Feb. 21. German
troops were reported, without confirm
ation tonight, to be pouring across
the Danube and massing on Bulgar
ian territory, where "discontent" over
the Nazi military moves was said to
have involved Bulgarian soldiers in
rioting at one point.
Three Senate Foes Blast
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. Three
Senate foes of President Roosevelt's
British-aid bill condemned it today as
a war measure, a leap toward dicta
torship, and a threat to national unity
during a world crisis. '
Critics in the fifth day of debate on
the momentous legislation were silver
thatched Guy M. Gillette, the Iowa
Democrat whom the President tried to
purge in the 1928 primary, and a
veteran of three wars ; C. Wayland
Brooks, Blinois Republican, who serv
ed in the World War and made his
maiden speech today; and-72-year-old
William J. Dulow, Democrat of South
Dakota, who spoke from the floor for
the third time in two years.

The play will be given in the Play

track events are run simultaneously in
Woollen gym. The 10-lap banked wood track will
then become the center of a four-ring track carnival
when finals begin at 7:30. Coach Bob Fetzer, Caro
lina 'j "dean of southern track," is chairman of the
Indoor Games committee, in charge of arrangements.
The meet has grown a great deal since its incep
tion 12 years ago. Before Woollen gym was built,
races were run in the Tin Can on a flat track until
1938, when the present track was put into use. A
track completely elevated from the gym floor was
used two years ago, and under these improved con
ditions many records have fallen. Frank Fuller of
Virginia and Bill Corpening of Carolina established
world records in their hurdle races last year, and Jim
Davis of Carolina ran a 4:12.5 mile the second fast-
