Dr. H. T. Lefler Analyzes
State History for SPI
Today Include . ,
"orth Carolina has had much
jiout which to boast, but it has tend
ed i boast, about some things about
-jrhkh there was no reason to boast
and it has tended to minimize various
important developments in its his
tory." Dr. Hugh T. Lefler of the his
tory department and co-author of the
tsach-discussed Newsome Lefler text
book, said last night in an address be
fore -00 young journalists and fac
ulty advisers attending the fifth an
nual North Carolina Scholastic Press
institute at the University, which
opez-ed this afternoon and will con
tinue through tonight.
"I: is bad to say that we are first
ia things in which we are not first
xhec the historical records do not
justify our boasting," he said. "On
-be other hand, we have overlooked or
.Tiiainized certain great periods of
progress such as 1835 to 1860.
"The reason there is so much fic
tion in North Carolina history lies in
-Jie fact that there was not a general
iistory of this state written by a
trained historian until 1919.
Speaking on "Facts and Fiction in
North Carolina History" and tracing
the development, growth, and import
ance of newspapers in this state, Dr.
Lefier told the high school representa

papers, the .recent history textbook
controversy has not produced a satis

produced a number of historians and

By Bill Currie
(High Point High School)
In addressing the opening session
of the North Carolina High School
Press institute 'yesterday, Orville
Campbell made the statement that a
person who has been in Chapel Hill
for any length of time has it in his
blood and can't get it out.
To some folks that might seem a
broad statement, and some might
have thought that Campbell was mere
ly speaking well of his college,, but to
us who are still in high school, and
have visited the University on numer
ous occasions, it struck at a truth
which we have known for a long time.
There's an atmosphere about Chapel
Hill, the University, which gets next
to people's hearts. I can well remem
ber the first time I visited the campus
three years ago. A stranger, un
known, without a friend in town. In
short, I was lonesome. Strolling across
the campus I met 31 people, students
of UNC, and exactly 31 of them spoke
to me like old friends.
A rather reassuring thing to have
people look like they are glad to have
you: and upon such a commendable
spirit has the reputation of this Uni
versity grown among the high school
students of North Carolina. Through
the extension division, students of the
many high schools in the state have
occasion to visit here on numerous
occasions, and upon returning home

Sinatra,, featured -vocalist with Tom

was the now-historical "111 Never
Smile Again," which sold more rec
ords for Dorsey than any other disc
he has made, including the fame
making "Marie." Waiting around at
the bandstand before the opening ses
sion of the May Frolics last night,
Sinatra admitted that singing Ruth
Loew's popular ballad two or three
times a night did get a little monoton

reaffirm that it 13 still "a great num

the retiring president of the student

because of competition fdr control be

WASHINGTON, May 2 President
Roosevelt today called on industry
and labor to produce for vital defense 1
machines and war materials on a 24
hour, seven-day week schedule.
He said in a letter to OPM direc
tors, William S. Knudsen and Sidney
Hillman that the new demands upon
the machine tool industry necessitated
the "critical" situation confronting
the nation. He emphasized the need for
speed and anticipated ready coopera
tion from employers and the workers.
In making public the letter at his
press conference, the President said
he believed the new speed-up opera
tion should be conducted successfully
within the framework of federal labor
laws. In a step toward their objective
he asked the War Department to make
a fresh survey for the draft army of

new battle-front of the Near East were
said to be extending over the tiny na

Friday began shelling Britain's Hab-

The bombardment following a vir

that the reinforced Britains quit Iraq,
was. reported to have come after the
arrival of British women and children ,
evacuees . from Bagdad.
Informed quarters, fearing a swift
"protective attack" as a result of the
pro-Nazi appeal, said it would not "be
surprising" if the British forces
marched on Bagdad and seized the
fabled city to forestall the Nazis and
protect the Mosul oil fields.
