Hero of the hour is an unknown lad

the catastrophe. "First I knew about
it," he said, "was when some tall guy
came barging in here and started to

Possibilty of student leaders clash
ing in . views with faculty representa
tives this morning blotted out previ
ous speculation on a Duke University
versus Carolina line-up at the Inter
national Relations club's round table
and open forum tonight at 8 o'clock
in Hill Music Hall.
University panelists at the forum
will be Truman Hobbs, student body
president, and Dean R. B. House. Law
rence E. Blanchard, president of the
student body at Duke University, and
Dean H. J. Herring will speak as Duke
House to Favor Intervention
i Dean House, it is rumored, may
challenge the audience' by requesting
"less beating around the bush" and
immediate intervention, with Dean
Herring taking a similar offensive.
Hint of the degree of harmony be
tween House and Hobbs at the round
table was given the Daily Tar Heel
when Hobbs revealed, "It is possible
that Dean House and I will disagree
on some points. The Dean is for urg
ing on the administration for immedi
ate war declaration, and while I am
not anti-interventionist, I do believe
in. following the administration's pol
icy to the utmost."
- Position of . Duke's student repre
sentative, Larry Blanchard, is entire
ly a mystery. A large congregation of
Duke students and faculty members
is expected at the IRC discussion.
It is expected that topics to be cov
ered tonight will include the expedi
ency of free discussion, the reluctance
of youth to face the world situation,
possible Neutrality Act repeal, value
of suspending democratic procedure
for swift administration rule, and the
importance of isolationism at this
President Roger Mann of the IRC
explained, "The general question un
derlying tonight's debating is that of
vouth's nart and narticination in a
possible approaching world war.
