Ring Out Sweet Bells Of Christmas
Soon citizens of the United States will commemorate another
Christmas Day. while those abroad will continue to suffer from
devastation and pestilence the war has brought. Instead of red
berries on boughs of holly, those abroad will be greeted by
splotches of crimson from the wound of a soldier fallen in the
battle. Instead of beautiful Christmas carols, the nerve-racking
roar of cannon fire pounds against their ear drums. Instead of
fervent prayers to God, they must worship a maniac disguised as
a human being who calls himself Adolph Hitler. Instead of spend-
ing Christmas together, mother and child must hover in a bomb
shelter while father stubbornly resists the onslaught of the enemy
on the field of battle or in the air. Ring out sweet bells of
Christmas. You are music to people of the United States.
Intoxication On The Floor At Dances
The fact that some of the boy friends of girls at East Caro-
lina Teachers College saturated their tonsils with intoxicating
beverages has been in evidence at the last two dances. The boys
who did this did not get out of control to the extent they had to be
ushered from the dance floor and saved themselves and their girl
friends some embarassment. Members qf the council will be
compelled to take action unless the condition is eradicated. Irre-
spective of the love element that may be involved, a girl should
n�t invite a boy to a dance if he is going to need whiskey to stimu-
late his dancing muscles before going on the floor. Any boy who
has no more respect for a girl than to drink before going to a col-
lege dance, where all practices of a gentleman should prevail,
likely will cause her both embarrassment and regret later in life.
If you have such a boy friend, girls, the most logical procedure
is to ditch him. If this is none of our business, then let him con-
tinue drinking and subject both of you to embarrassment in the
future.

Majority Favors Aid To Educate Poor
Government grants of money to enable poor families to keep
their children in high school would be favored by seven out of
every ten persons in the nation, a recent poll conducted bv the
American Youth Commission and published by the National'Edu-
cation Association, reveals. The poll was undertaken with the
cooperation of the American Institute of Public Opinion, of which
George Gallup is director. The question asked was: If a family
are so poor that they have to keep their children out of high school.

The purpose for which the British Navy was built is being
achieved as the recently reinforced Mediterranean fleet steadily
tightens its blockade of Italy's outlying possessions and seriously
menaces Fascist supply lines to Africa.
It has been pointed out in naval circles that the Italian force
recently engaged by British Warships and planes off the coast of
Sardinia was protecting the vital communication route to North
Africa with the hope of keeping beyond the range of British naval
units, and in failing to do that the effectiveness of the Italian fleet
was reduced until it has only one battleship and possibly only two
heavy cruisers to protect oversea lines of supply.
The Italian invasion of Greece has enabled the British to
establish themselves at Suda Bay in Crete, and from that point
to set up a patrol on a 500 mile arc. Suda Bay is only 250 miles
from the Libyan coast and therefore the Italian routes to ports
on the African coast are virtually blocked by the British.
With the whole of the Mediterranean now under British
domination the Admiralty hints that a British offensive has been
turned on in hope of knocking the weaker end of the Axis out
of the War. With Italy out of the war the vigilance of the Bri-
tish in the Mediterranean could be relaxed and a major part
of the naval forces there could be sent into the North Atlantic
convoy system where they are sorely needed.
Nazi Germany, after concentrating months on bombing
London, has been giving attention to the Midlands of England,

Lee, Columbia, Brown. Rutgers, and Dartmouth, began with
faculties of theologians whose main purpose was to give ade-
quate training to ministers of the Gospel. Behind this emphasis
in the new nation lay a century of the all but universal employ-
ment of The New England Primer in the elementarv schools
from Maine to Georgia. Almost wholly a paraphrase of the
bible, it served as the basis for the study of spelling, reading,
writing, as well as religion.
Somebody has said thai
momentum of those old Bible-conscious days, but the movement
is rapidly running down. Sponsored bv the American Bible
Society, which is about to celebrate its 125th anniversary the
churches of the nation will celebrate Universal Bible Sunday again
on December 8. The occasion offers the best chance in many
years to step up the momentum of interest in the Bible. We
heartily join in, for we believe that more of the Ten Command-
ments and the Sermon on the Mount, as well as some of the solemn
warnings of the prophets, without which our nation would have
crumbled long ago, are badly needed now. How long has it been
since you have read your Bible seriously? Get it down on De-
cember 8 and help make our beloved land a Bible-reading nation
again.

Some comment has arisen about letters in the Student Opin-
ion column being signed with an anonimous name and leaving the
reader in doubt as to the author. The editorial department of
the Tcco Echo knows the author of each article that appears in
the Student Opinion column and you are at liberty to avail vour-
self to his or her identity. Frankly, we don't see that it makes
much difference whether or not letters to the editor bear the
fw?" the Writer when the" aPPear in the paper, except
that the identity of the author helps one to evaluate what is said
in the letter. There are many persons who have good ideas, but
are modest about expressing them. Naturally when this per-
son has a letter appearing in the Student Opinion column he is
going to be reluctant to have his name attached when it appears
in the paper, even though the name accompanied the article.
1 here are others who say what they think and don't mind telling
the world about it. We want students to use the column. And
when you submit a letter sign your name and specify whether the
name will appear with it in print. This will help us in pleasing
those who are more interested in "who said what" than "what is
said.

East Carolina's Pirates fin-
ished their football season here
on the college field November
22, with a swashbuckling 44-7 !
defeat to the Naval Apprentice
School of Norfolk.
The intial Pirate score came
with less than three minutes of
the game gone, with acting cap-
tain Gianakos falling on a fum-
ble kicked on the Tars' three-
yard line and Wilson Schuer-
holtz bucking it across two plays
later, McFee adding the point
from placement.
From that point on it was a
scoring parade with the Pirates
crossing the Tars' goal once more
in the first quarter, twice in the
second, once in the third, and
twice again in the final period.
Schuerholtz crossed the double
lines three times during the
game, with McFee and Roberts
adding two si-pointers each.
The two extra pointts chalked
up came from the toe of McFee.
While McFee and Schuerholtz
were the offensive giants of
the game that was to be expect-
ed by their past performances,
the surprise package came in
the play of Stuart Tripp and
George Roberts.
Coach John Christenbury has
begun regular practice with the
basketball hopefuls of E. C. T. C.
Since the Thanksgiving holidays
the squad has been holding daily
workouts and will be in top
shape when the schedule begins
after Christmas.
Christenbury has not chosen
a definite first team as yet and
is alternating the different boys
I in hopes of finding a smooth-
working five that will give a
good account of itself on the
court.
Standouts in the practices
have been George Roberts,
elongated center; Wilson Schuer-
holtz, shifty guard; Peterson,
Simpson, Hint on, Bob Young
and several other contestants
for a starting berth on the first-
string five.
Donald Brock and George
Lautares, mainstays on the
team last year, will be sorely
missed this year. Brock grad-
