For Observance Of Brotherhood Week
F �r a number of years the National
C �uncil of Christiana and Jews have been
�serving February aa the National Brother-

. ei tinent today with the world filled with
and strife.
On th campus next week the YWCA
and YMCA groups are sponsoring a Reli-
gious Emphasis Week program in order that
East Carolina Teachers college students may
advantage of participating in the Na-
al brotherhood program. National
Emphasis week is planned as a practical out-
let for religion.
Not only is there a need for brotherhood
between nations but between groups there
are racial animosities and creed intolerances.
The main purpose for having a time set
apart for brotherhood is to bind the people
of all nations and all creeds together with
greater tolerance for the varied beliefs and
faiths of the world. Such an observance as
Brotherhood month will help to bring people
of good will everywhere to cultivate a better

heard few complaints about that�you ex-

this was different?
Some students say that they don't con-
sider themselves under the jurisdiction of
the college until they have registered again.
Well, in such an instance, why not take all
vour possessions home with you when you
leave at the end of each quarter and bring it
all back, if you come back? Miss Morton
asks you to notify her at the end of each
quarter if you aren't expecting to return the
following quarter, and if she receives no
notice she expects you all back. From now

home at the end of each quarter and take
your chances on having your room assigned
to someone else rather than make an honest
attempt to return on time, I'm sure it could

At long last, a letter has come again
from "Jungle Jimmie" Whitfield, one time
editor of this paper. Jimmie has been over-
seas for twenty-six months and says "the
natives and monkeys down nere in Central
America have threatened to make me mayor
of a dobe village In addition to his mili-
tary duties he is an authorized correspon-
dent for the Jungle News service in the
Coast Artillery command of the Caribbean
area, and is empowered to collect informa-
tion for official press releases. Having
time for still other conquests, as is so typi-
cal of Jimmie's nature, he has done some
membership work for the Veterans of
Foreign Wars and recently offered a plan
to national headquarters designed to coor-
dinate members of the V. F. W now overseas
with the home front, R. B. Handy, Adju-
tant General, not only commended the pro-
posal, but advised in a personal letter that
it had been adopted by national headquar-
ters and was being put into effect, thus mak-
ing it a worldwide plan, since members are
scattered all over the globe. We extend our
congratulations to you Jimmie and are proud
of you. It's good to see the jungles haven't
harmed that prodigious mind of yours.

Sgt. Vern A. Kuetemeyer, "Some-
where in England writes that he keeps up
with the news and events on the campus via
the paper, which is a "welcome little mes-
senger While writing his letter, Vern was
in charge of quarters and "there is a noisy
discussion going on here in the Orderly
room, I can hardly think he wrote. Be-
ing engaged in the same type of work as
when he was in the states, Vern finds his
duties as an Instrument Specialist very en-
joyable. "Let us hope and pray the new
year will bring something bigger and finer
for all of us and more trouble for Mr.

Pvt. Charles Dan Jordan, class '35,
writes from Wright field, Dayton, Ohio, of
his very interesting work. The laboratory in
which he is working is the only one of its
kind. It is part of the Material command
of the Army Air forces. It is known as the
Aero Medical Research laboratory, but the
nature of the work is secret and restricted.
Dan is in the Physiological branch. His job
is concerned with respiration, necessitating
many flights to high altitudes and to run
analyses on gases and blood. "Believe me
it is a thrilling job. I have been far beyond
our announcer ceiling of 40,200 ft. Much
of the work is done in low pressure cham-
bers, but we do have a B-17 which is a true
flying laboratory and is in constant use.
Many tall and interesting stories go with
that dear old ship he says.

The news of 2nd. Lt. Alvin Wooten's
death saddened many people at school, as he
had many friends, both among students and
faculty here. Alvin began his training in
the CPT program while in school here. He
received his secondary training at Lumber-
ton, N. C afterwards teaching ground
school for a short period. He received his
instructor's rating, commerciaal license,
and radio-telephone license at New Orleans.
Early in 1943 he joined the Army Air
Transport Command, 2nd. Ferrying di-
vision of the Air Corps. He ferried bomb-
ers all over this country, Mexico, South
America, England, and Africaa. He lost
his life in a heavy bomber crash in Grander,

Dempsey has made major. He returned
from the European and North American

States, according to his home town paper.

Only one common characteristic need you

a suit in black and white check or in brown

such a suit, milady's chest is exposed to all
the spring breezes, which, I think, defeats
th real purpose of any suit.
A favorite of the women of chic is the
belted tunic. Over a sheath of a skirt is
worn a long (finger-tip). full jacket, the full-

the waist. Bright wool gabardine in yellow,

test the fact.
