POST MORTEM ...
It seems inane and silly to recall that a little
over two months ago two factions on the cam
pus were reaching avidly for each other's throats
because the Student Legislature passed a bill
limiting dance expenditures to $750.
It seems inane because last night hundreds
of Carolina men and their dates walked shining
and overdressed through the typical dance week
end downpour into Woollen gym. They danced
and bantered and drank Coca-colas just as they
have for years past. When the band beat off a
feature number, they thronged around the band
stand, just as at every dance except when Al
Donahue played. When the dance was over, a lit
tle irked because the Arboretum was wet, they
- headed for Harry's and Danziger's and the Uni
versity as in years past.
There was none of the frustration that the
anti-cut boys so loudly predicted. Nor did more
than the usual number of couples suffer for
breaks, as was so direly forecast. The crowds
of revengeful drunks that were prophesied
weren't to be found either.
It was an excellent dance despite all prognosti
cations of the winter quarter and tonight's af
fair will be a repeat performance, perhaps a lit
tle improved because the band will be one of the
best authentic swing aggregations - in the coun
try. All of which should go to show the Carolina
students two things. First, that the ability to
have a good time lies within themselves and not
their pocketbooks. Second, that wartime sacri
fice does not blight their young lives.
MORE GAS TROUBLES...
Thursday we printed an editorial warning stu
dents againts storing gasoline in dormitories and
fraternity houses. Yesterday the fire and police
departments stepped in and confiscated a large
amount of gas that had been stored in some
Evidently someone couldn't realize the fire
hazard and the danger to life and property that
is created when large amounts, of gas are stored
in buildings. Now they have lost that gas.
The police department is empowered to con
fiscate any material that the fire department
deenfs a fire hazard to a building. They are evi
dently going to use this power.
Also, the Rationing Board informs us that
anyone possessing large stores of gas must
punch their ration cards each time they pour
some of it in a car just as if they had bought it
at a filling station. Violations of this rule may
render the offender liable to a $10,000 fine or
10 years imprisonment.
Be sensible and store your gas outside where
it will not be a menace, and be careful that you
do not violate the rationing rule.
IN PASSING . . .
A Carolina baseball team that was given little
chance, of winning either the Big Five or South
ern conference race brought both titles to Chapel
Hill this week. Which is a clear indication to us
that the will to win is sometimes better than
Certainly we're not reflecting on the ability
of the team, but we feel that on the whole it
was not as good all-round as some teams the Tar
Heels defeated. But the Tar Heels specialized in
one field. That was "never-give-up." And with
that thought in mind they came from behind on
numerous occasions to bring home victory in
stead of defeat. Congratulations to Co-Captains
Bo Reynolds and Chubby Meyers, and Coach
Bunn Hearn for 100 per cent success. It would
be well for other sports to take a lesson from
Someone asked a senior yesterday if he were
When the IRC and CPU made a verbal con
tract many months ago as to which club gets
which speakers, it was agreed that the IRC
would cover all speakers from the US State De
partment, since that government agency was so
closely allied with international affairs. The IRC
took its first positive action with this agreement
when it presented Sumner Welles last year.
Thursday night the IRC will bring another
State Department man to Memorial hall.- He's
Stanley K. Hornbeck, Cordell Hull's political ad
viser. He's not a man with a big name like Hull
or Welles, but he is the one man in the State De
partment who can tell most about the Pacific
Why ? Because Dr. Hornb'eck has specialized in
study of the Far East for most of his life. When
the State Department ever wants an expert opin
ion of Far Eastern affairs, they turn to Stanley
Right up until Pearl Harbor Hornbeck was
making an investigation of Japan's war trade
methods. He can tell any audience the true po
litical set-ups in China and Japan. His business
is knowing what's going on in the Far East,
and according to official testimonies, Hornbeck
is a very successful businessman. '
Carolina apparently is in for its biggest dose
of unaltered, extensive information on the Pa
cific war since the conflict began when students
listen to Stanley Hornbeck Thursday night.
Tomorrow the Treasure Hunt for five hidden
$5 bills will begin. Below are the solutions to yes
terday's sample clues. No more sample clues will
be printed. Tomorrow's will be the real thing.
Here's how the Hunt will work: starting to
morrow the Daily Tar Heel will publish two
clues each day until Friday. The solution of eith
er one of the day's clues will lead you to a hidden
$5 bill. For example, suppose the solutions to to
morrow's set of clues are "GRAHAM MEMOR
IAL OFFICE DESK" and "CONFEDERATE
STATUE." You should immediately go to either
the desk or statue and examine them carefully.
You will find a code message, saying something
like "Dig 18 inches east of Battle dormitory cor
nerstone." Then if you immediately dig at the
directed place, you should have no trouble find
ing a $5 bill.
The first student who solves the puzzles and
tracks the clue will get the $5, so it's a game of
speed. There aren't any entry blanks, any strings
attached. All you have to do to get your $5 is
solve one clue and track it down. If you are a
winner, the Daily Tar asks you to notify them
immediately,' so that your name can be printed.
With students getting their Daily Tar Heels at
about 8 o'clock, we estimate that the $5 bills will
be found by noon each day. But if no student on
the campus finds the first $5 bill, two bills will
be waiting for you to find the next day.
Here are the solutions to yesterday's sample
No. 7. First letter A. Chicken cock. News
flash bulletin. Lists stock quotations board.
So the answer is "Aycock bulletin board."
No. 8 By simple rearranging the letters you
get "On Bell Tower steps."

THE WEARY WISHER . . .
By Hayden Carruth
Jack Sprat sat at the furthest
desk, his feet propped comfortably
against the open second drawer. He
was reading an old copy of the Amer-"
ican Federationist. Just then the
door swung open with a fury, and
Little Jack Horner exploded into
"Listen, Sprat. We're being ex
ploited. Mother Goose has preyed
on us working guys long enough. The
old witch has drained the life blood
from my very veins. Look at me;
just look at me. I've been sticking
my thumb in and out of that danmed
pie for the last three hundred years.
I tell ya, Sprat, I can't stand it any
longer." Horner's voice rose to a
hysterical pitch, his shock of wild,
black hair tossed frothily on his head
as he pounded the desk in his vehem- "
ence. The desk fell down.
"Damn," said Sprat, as his feet
fell to the floor.
"I'll tell ya what we need, Sprat,"
continued Horner more calmly. "We
gotta get this organization on its feet.
We gotta toss out the old foggies.
We gotta get an industrial union,
here, and what's more, we gotta use
a little sabotage on that old woman.
Slow down on the job occasionally
and that sort of stuff. Ya know
what I mean. Listen, Sprat, what
the hell's the matter with ya. You
been eatin' that damned steak for
centuries now, giving your wife all
the good fat meat Why don't ya
stand up for rights man? Fight,
that's what we gotta do. Wipe out
the capitalists!" Horner paced the
floor in his anger. The floor caught
up in the last lap, however, and
paced Horner for the home stretch.
."I like steak," said Sprat, and he
got up and went down to the -Waldorf-Astoria
Roof Garden to get
"Nuts," shouted Horner, and a lit
tle grey squirrel came out of a dark
corner and gave him three. "Thanks,"
said Horner. "You're welcome," said
the squirrel, whose name was Squir
rel, Esq. "How do you stand it, Squir
rel, Esq.?" asked Horner.
"Oh, I got 'em beat," said Squirrel,"
Esq. "I just bury all my wealth so
nobody can find it, and then, when
I don't want to look like I'm loafing,
I spend my time looking for it again."
Squirrel, Esq. passed out and his
two brothers came to take him away.
"Hunger, you know," said his brother
to Horner as they went out.
Old Mother Hubbard came in.
Horner looked as if he didn't see her
v because it had rumored about that
she had been seen in the back room
with Jacob Spitzkrugeroskyov, a nor
"You know, Horner, I'm begin
ning to think there may be some
thing in what you say. That blast
ed dog of mine bit me last night. I
think he's beginning to get just a
little tired of this no-bone gag we've
been pulling on him since 4 A. D."
"Industrial unionism, Old M. H.,
is the only thing," saiI Horner, who
had picked up a copy of Mein Kampf
and suddenly developed a new inter
est. Dan Martin and Roland Parker
walked by the front door. "Dirty
cooperationists," said O. M. Hub
bard. "Dirty old toy of the capital
ists," said her dog as he chased her
around the central desk.
"Now take it easy, O. M. H.'s dog.
Things are going to be changed
around here. We're getting a strong
er union. Oh, Oh."
The reason that Little Jack Horn
er said "Oh, Oh," and he said it with
-my-destiny-gulp tremor in his lar
ynx, was that Mother Goose h&4 just
- smashed the glass in the French win
dow and entered thereby.
"Now listen, scum. I just been
down to a confab with Leon Hender
son, and every time we was just
about to reach an agreement about
how many steaks and pies we could
get for youse wretches to work on,
some guy by the name of Batt
would poke his ugly schoozzola over
the transom and say 'Tut, tut, now,
Hendy, don't forget that WE'RE
AT WAR, or IH cut your other arm
off.' Subsequently, we didn't get
nowheres, and I don't know what
the woild's coming to."
"Don't worry, Mother Goose,"
said Hubbard and Horner in unison,
"we will go out and get the materials
to carry on our great work." (It was
later suggested by one of Squirrel,
Esqs brothers that this sudden
change of heart was brought about
by the fact that Mother Goose had
arrived with the 47th and 61st regi
ments of the state militia, fully
"Whatsa matter wid youse joiks,"
said The Old Woman Who Lived In
a Shoe. "Youse bums is backin' down.
Here I've been compelled by an un
conquerable force to reside in the
material protection usually afforded
pedal extremities and completely de
nied the benefits of modern science
in my relations with society, partic
ularly male, and you, formerly1
staunch members of the working
class express the traitorous intention
of backing do . ." She was riddled,
with bullets by the militia.
One stray bullet killed the cap
tain, so the rest of the company,
really very good anarchists at heart,
shot Mother Goose and went off look
ing for this guy Batt, accompanied
by. Hubbard, Horner and one of
Squirrel, Esq.'s brothers.
