New Point System
, Would Spread :
The Valkyries, woman's honor or
ganization on the campus, will propose
a point system Monday to the coeds
at a meeting of the Woman's associa:
tion, as "a solution to the problem of
overabundance activities and respons
ibilities pushed on a comparatively
small number of leaders." '
The purpose of the system is "to
distribute more evenly the honors and
work of the various offices, and to
limit the additional work of each girl
holding a major office, in order that
the offices may be more efficiently
f illed." -
A system of evaluation in terms of
points has been worked out to apply
to all offices filled by women, and
under it no woman may carry more
than seven points without special per
mission from the Valkyries.
This honor group would serve as
the Point System committee, whose
duty would be to keep the system vup
to date, and suited for tv- it
hand. They would also check on the
points and grade eligibility of new of
ficers, and keep a record of these of
ficers and their points.
A "C" average or better would be
required for office-holders, and a stu
dent unclassed because of failure could
not hold office. An individual wo
man student could hold only one presi
dency, or one vice-presidencyr one
tresurership, or two secretaryships.
The office of "president' of the Wo
man's association counts seven joints
(the limit) , the presidency of the
YWCA, seven points, and the presi
dency of the Woman's Athletic asso
ciation, five points.
If passed, the point system will go
into effect for spring elections.
Director Sturgis E. Leavitt and
Executive Secretary J. C. Lyons of

The Inter-American Institute of the
University of North Carolina wishes
to express its gratitude to all indi
viduals and groups in the University

ous cooperation helped to make the
recent "summer school" for South
Americans a success. We wish that we
were in a position to write a separate
letter of thanks to each person and to
each group that contributed in any
way to the success of the undertaking.
However, .this" would be a herculean
taskj and the considerable stenographic
force that would be required is not
available. It is hoped that students,
faculty, and townspeople will accept
this public expression of gratitude in

terfrat council banquet this year. A
report of the scholastic averages of

copies of "Robert's Rules of Order,"
one for use of the council and the oth

Yugoslav Shift To Axis
Seen Within 48 Hours
Lt. Gov, Harris
By United Press
BELGRADE, March 7 (Friday) An official statement believed to herald
imminent announcement of Yugoslavia's shift to the axis was published
throughout the nation today assuring the people that the government is
"correctly" judging their interests and security. .
As part of its swing to the side of Germany, the government was under
stood to have intervened in an effort to break down Greece's stubborn stand
in refusing to submit, to a Nazi die-'
tated peace with Italy.
. Within the next 48 hours, diplomats
predicted, Yugoslavia will announce
that she is entering "closer collabora
tion" thereby closing the last gap in
the axis "encirclement of Greece" and
bringing the last Balkan neutral into
the German camp.

National Poll Shows That
Majority of Students Drink
ATTSTTN. Texas. March 6 Al
though college students are as a whole
not teetotalers and a majority may be
classed as liberals on the question of
drinking, ,there exists today on the
campuses of America a good amount
of conservatism regarding liquor.
Two years ago this March, Stu
dent Opinion Surveys of America con
ducted a nationwide poll that for the
first time provided a complete picture
of drinking habits and sentiment
among collegians. The survey has
been repeated, and besides producing
a new set of figures on this topic, the
study brings proof that the sampling
procedure used by Student Opinion
Surveys is of such stability that its
faults may be interpreted as an ac
curate barometer, of college thought
from coast to coast. v
In summary, these were the 'results
of the survey, taken through the coop-
eration of the college press, . includ
ing the Daily. Tar Heel:
- 1. Six out of every ten believe that
college students do not drink too
2. Nearly seven out of every ten
men, and nearly five out of every ten
coeds, admit they drink alcoholic bev
3. Eight out of every ten are oppos
ed to the return of prohibition.
The 1939 survey and the present
one, takeny in identical manner, re
veal figures that are almost parallel
in every respect, giving new basis to
the fact that by means of sampling it
is possible for the Surveys to gauge
what the total enrollment of nearly
1,500,000 thinks. Prohibition and
drinking in general are rather static
questions on which sentiment is not
expected to vary considerably for
long periods of time, and that is what

Nye, who is being sponsored by the

whose isolationist point of view dates
back to the first World War, has said
that the bill, if passed, "would be
madness of the first magnitude . . .
would make Congress a rubber stamp
