Worley Invites Coeds
To Union Activities
. Fish Worley, with a wicked gleam
in his eye, sent out an SOS yesterday
for more coeds to come and enjoy the
beauties of his domicile, otherwise
known as Graham Memorial.
"We are fixing up Room 214 with
a coffee table, and four easy chairs
for a game of bridge or record pro
grams," said Fish in trying to entice
the coeds to his lair.
But that's not the only new improve
ment, for Graham Memorial is now the
home of the Sound and' Fury office,
full length mirrors are being placed
in the ladies' reception room, and there
are now two coeds on the board of
directors of Graham Memorial.
"Coeds pay the student union fee as
well as the men, and we hope they
will come in and take advantage of our
reading room, the 50 albums of classical
music and popular records, and the new
free game room." j
Luftwaffe Bombers Launch
Savage Raids on British Isles
By United Press
German bombers today made their most savage attack on the British Isles
in more than three months as Nazi authorities took bloody reprisals for mount
ing sabotage and the Soviet High Command claimed success on all battle fields.
Luftwaffe bombers swept coastal areas from Scotland to the Straits of Dover,
and it was feared casualties and damage would be high in at least two towns.
Terrific anti-aircraft fire and fighters battled the raiders in clear moonlight.
A late Soviet communique said Red troops, in a stubborn two-day battle in
the Ukraine, had slain 2,700 Germans and captured more than 500, and great
stores of supplies. -
The revolt against Nazi repression surged acros the occupied countries of j

WASHINGTON, October 2. The White House expressed hope tonight that
"an entering wedge for the practice of complete freedom of religion" in Soviet
Russia is "definitely on its way."
Issuance of the statement coincided with rising controversy over President
Roosevelt's statement that the Soviet Constitution provides the same rights to
freedom of worship as those enjoyed by Americans.
LAKELAND, Ga., October 2. A quiet middle-aged grandmother who was a
schoolteacher bef ere she became Georgia's first lady for f oru years, tonight was
given much of the credit for having prevented an armed political crank from
kidnapping her husband, former-Governor E. J. Rivers for ransom. The would-be-kidnapper
committed suicide by shooting himself in the mouth two hours
after he failed in the attempt to abduct Rivers from his home last night.

Swing, slang and sandwich consti

and promise to occupy high places in
the American folklore that is now in
the making. Phychologists have point

contributes in large share to American
vitality and influences in just as high
a degree the natures and dispositions of
millions of youngsters from high school
to college ages.
Yet, even these typically American

light of the National Defense program.
Swing has become militant, slang re

Would Be Deferred
Under Langer Bill
Announcement came yesterday from
Selective Service headquarters in
Washington of pending legislation in
Congress which may alter the draft
act to allow for mass deferment of
college students until the end of the
Boards all over the nation were noti
fied that the Langer Bill, now before
the Senate Military Affairs committee,
includes clauses which will "continue
the flow of trained leaders so much
needed both during and after the pres-
sent war period."
The revamped law would allow any
person who has entered college, and
completed at least one year of work
toward a recognized degree, to finish
the academic year, and make prepara
tion for continuing the courses after
service in the armed forces.
Coming on the heels of a previous
survey by the government which re
vealed that 85 per cent of college seniors
and 45-per cent of college juniors are
of Selective Service age, the bill will
"assure the continuation of colleges
and universities that may otherwise be
jeopardized by loss of students." .
At present local boards are being
advised by national headquarters to
fully investigate the applications' for
deferment, and act in the best inter
ests of the government and the student.
Tryouts for The Male Animal, first
major production of the Carolina Play-
makers, will be held this afternoon at
