Gift Makes New
By George Lurcy -John
V. Allcott, head of the Art De
partment of the University of North
Carolina and director of Person Hall
-.Art Gallery, announced today that gifts
of some hundred books and many pho
tographs make possible the launching
of a new course? in nodeni painting.
With Allcott, this fall, a group of
students has been studying modern ar
chitecture, visiting, the few, but re
freshing houses of modern design in
this part of the state. The group is
preparing an exhibition, the first one
of its kind, called "Modern Architecture
in North Carolina." After showing in
Person hall it will tour the State.
"Our modern architecture group,"
said Mr. Allcott, "shows that the young
descendants of old North Carolina stock
are eager to understand the many new
features of modern architecture. They
respect the homes of their grand
fathers, but want for themselves light
er, more informal homes of today.
"Our show on Van Gogh last year,"
he said, "and one big modern painting
exhibition last spring, indicated fur
ther that North Carolina students en
joy, and are seeking to enlarge their
understanding of modern art. We are
very lucky now to receive the materials

inal results of the intercollegiate
and national Gallup polls, compiled
and tabulated by Dr. Frank Gallup
and Princeton's Nassau Sovereign and
conducted on the Carolina campus by
an International Relations club sur
vey staff, were received yesterday.
Dr. Gallup, in his analysis of na
tional public opinion and the Prince
ton magazine in their Intercollegiate
Survey, last week quizzed the Ameri
can public and representatives of fifty
universities on three Gallup questions.
An IRC committee managed distri
bution of the questionnaires to 200
representative Carolina undergrad
uates and wired results to Princeton
The poll's key question, "Which do
you think is more important, that
Germany be defeated or that America
stay out of the war?" was out-dated
by the Japanese declaration of war.
However, the existence of almost ex
act agreement between college stu
dents and general public opinion on
this question has created general com
ment. This vote marked the first time
students and public have voted iden
tically. The results: That Germany
be defeated: students, 28 per cent;
nation, 30 per cent. That America
stay out of war: students, 70 per
cent; nation, 70 per cent. Thus rep
resentatives of the entire US public
voted against war five days before
the actual declaration.-
On the query, "Should the question
of American participation in the war
be discussed from pulpits of Ameri
can churches?", 44 per cent of stu
dents voted yes and 49 per cent voted
no. Thirty-four per cent of the na
tion voted yes and 65 per cent voted
no. , .
"Do you think youth in this com
munity is more interested or less in
terested in religion than youth was
ten years ago?" Students: more, 23
per cent; same, 25 per cent; less, 39
per cent. Nation: more, 18 per cent;
same, 24 per cent; less, 49 per cent.

Serving in Hawaii
By Walter Klein
Eleven former Carolina students yes
terday were definitely located in Ter
ritory of Hawaii, Philippine Islands
and on the high seas of the Pacific.
Whether those students and an un
known number of other University men
stationed in the war zone are among the
dead and wounded of the war's first
tages cannot be determined until
Washington releases more complete
casualty lists. . .
Ervid Ericson, son of Dr. E. E. Eric-
son of Carolina's English department,
is assigned to a coast artillery" unit at
Fort Stotsenburg in the Philippines.
John Umstead, son of John W. Um-

Officials Ask for War Calm
Administrative leaders, in close touch with o facial Wash
N ington, last night called for calm student acceptance of the
present situation and developments arising from expansion
of the war effort. .
Stressing four points, both undergraduate and faculty
spokesmen urged draft registrants to "disregard rumors."
The same leaders suggested conferences with local boards
upon arrival at home during Christmas vacation. It was un
derstood, from conversations held early yesterday in South
building that it is improbable that any. men will be called up
until after the examination period.
A long distance phone call to the capital during the after
noon netted prediction from "educational agencies" that
changes in the draft age are not likely.
All students with inquiries and problems to discuss rela
tive to the defense situation will meet every morning in Ger
rard halJ, beginning tomorrow, at 10:30 until the end of exams
to learn the latest developments on their status. These meet
ings, sponsors said, would serve to advise registrants of the
latest news available from Washington.
A special request came from Dean F. F. Bradshaw for all
students who have had two or more years of military training
and are not registered for the draft, to report to Gerrard hall
this aftenoon at 2 o'clock to receive special information.
