Senor Ernesto Montenegro, eminent Chilean author and journalist, predicted as he spoke to the University student body in Chapel Monday. Senor Montenegro offered the statement concerning migration to Latin America with a reservation. "South America is not a frontier in the whole sense of the word." he said. "In the postwar period Americans going to South America must take the other fellow into consideration. Therefore, the 'new frontier* will be a frontier in a restricted sense." He pointed out the fact that after the war there will be no new lands to conquer by brutal force. Cooperation between North and South Americans will be the key to the future, he stated. "In all earnestness the world of tomorrow must be made up on a new understanding," Senor Montenegro declared. "The new world will be for peaceful co-operation." The speaker has been a staff member of the Buenos Aires (Argentina) La Prensa and the Santiago <Chile) La Nacion. His writings have also been published by the New York Times and The American Mercury magazine. A well-know lecturer, Senor Montenegro has spoken at Northwestern University and the Universities of Florida. Missouri and Alabama before coming to Chattanooga. "The people of South America have found that it is not good to be always on the receiving end." he said. Senor Montenegro explained his statement by saying the Latin American countries have always depended upon other nations to lend them money and to manufacture finished products for them. He said the best way to help the South American peoples is to "help them to help themselves." The people of South America have a common view with the people of the United States rather than European nations, he said. Senor Montenegro said the Latin American nations are independent politically but very dependent economically. "We are a colonial empire although in our government forms we are fre»' Citing incidents of European and American power in South America. Senor Montenegro told of the Ar- gentinan railroad system. He said the system was constructed by the British and is being used for the good of Argentina. But for the railway network the British were given land right-of- ways which give them great power in Argentina. When Chile was unable to mine rich copper deposits be iuse of lack of capital. American interests stepped in, invested more than (Continued on Page 2, Col. 4) On Sept. 22 at the summer school graduation, the University of Chattanooga had the pleasure of entertaining Col. Oveta Culp Hobby, director of the WAC. and the honor of having Col. Hobby address the foraduating class. Col. Hobby's speech was an inspiring one—"it ir only through educated men and women that a democratic form of government will be maintained." In exhorting the graduates to greater effort in the struggle in which we are now engaged, the speaker reminded them that at the ume when they were just entering college, the military machines of me Axis were feeding their waxiny appetites for power through conquest, and now. she said, it bee- booves these young people to '"translate without delay their learning into practical application to the needs of the war and to fight ai 8 small unit in the greatest mass endeavor ever known." "The rights of men. the inviolability of the individual, a Government of the people—these are our priceless heritage and what we fight to uphold. The obligation is laid upon us all. Every generation has owed this obligation to society, but world circumstances have not demanded payment. You reach your commencement when the demand is made." After the presentation of diplomas, an honorary degree of Doctor of Laws was conferred on Col. Hobby. This came as a complete surprise to the speaker as well as the visitors. Col. Hobby was escorted to the center of the altar by Dr. Edwin Lindsey, Chief Marshal, and there presented to Dean Maxwell A. Smith. Dean Smith read the citation which stated the political, legal, and journalistic accomplishments of Col. Hobby, placing her high in the ranks of outstanding contemporary Americans. President Lockmiller acknowledged the citation by conferring the degree as Mrs. Edwin Woodworth. Dean of Women, placed the hood over Col. Hobby's shoulders. Dr. and Mrs. Lockmiller held a reception honoring the graduates and Col. Hobby following the services.

W .F. Blackard, district Methodist superintendent, and Dr. David A. Lockmiller, U. C. president. Carnavale D'Automne The aviation students are playing hosts to the University women. On the 22nd of October. Chamberlain Field and the basketball courts will be a riot of gaily decked booths and laughing youth. There will be the merry strains of guitars and the throbbing tread of square dancing. There will be cider and prizes. There will be a huge bonfire. There will be skits and the Eaglet band. And all free! All the women students at U. C. are invited to appear at 5:30 <sharp* in sports clothes in the stadium. After a barbecue supper with the aviation students in their mess hall, at 6 o'clock promptly, will come the gay and glorious time being cooked up by a committee of U. C. women and 45th C.T.D. men. No girl is to bring a date. Chamberlain Field will be the scene of adequate introductions for the evening. All girls are to be on time. for the Army works, and eats, strictly on schedule. The gala occasion is a new affair on the campus. The breath of festivity fills the air. Two Red Dresses Black was not the unanimous color at the Upperclassman Tea. Rather, as the guests flitted from acquaintance to acquaintance and smiled around the rooms, a multitude of colors was beheld. There were, however, only two red dresses. Of main fashion and utilitarian note were the huge purses. Large enough last year, they seem to have grown with time as would cornstalks or babies. At the Upperclassman Tea the Brobdignagian pocketbooks were constantly hurtling their owners against one another. Above the hubbub of happy voices, beyond the turmoil of maladroit purses, came the music of violin, 'cello, and piano which had so enchanted the freshmen two weeks before. For the seniors the tea was an especial occasion, because it was the last annual Upperclassman Tea they were to attend at the President's home. Although a year lies yet between now and graduation, that year will be filled with such intensive study that all social occasions must be embraced lovingly. For them especially the invitations received before the tea will stand as the symbols of fond memories. The New Home Economic Department and Laboratory 'Even the King May Not Enter" Unless he is a student at the University of Chattanooga, even the King may not enter the lovely home of President and Mrs. David A. Lockmiller on the afternoon of the Freshman receptions given each year. Well, would the King have regretted it this year if he had passed the President's residence Friday, Sept. 24. However, not being able to enter, no doubt the King would have enjoyed listening to the enchanting strains of a haunting melody from the strings of a violin and watching the Freshmen boys, who, in their enthusiasm, arrived at least 15 minutes too early and had to wait admittance to President Lockmiller's home. Although their enthusiasm was somewhat dampened by this incident, they decided to wait until the girls came and to escort them into the house. Passing down the reception line the smiling frosh were greeted by President and Mrs. Lockmiller, Dean and Mrs. Maxwell A. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. S. F. Bretske, Mrs. Edwin Woodworth, and Miss Betty Blocker. Proceeding into the sun parlor these neophyte collegians were greeted by Quadrangle members who served them and introduced them to their fellow classmates. Of particular note was the overwhelming majority of girls, all attired in charming ensembles which certainly made one appreciate their number tremendously, for each one added just another color of the rainbow to those present. The most unusual sight was that of a group of new men students who had arrived without coats. They stood like reluctant dragons in the reception hall waiting for some of their more fully attired friends to pass down the receiving line and come out. The coats then changed hands, or to be specific, backs, and again made the rounds. "Miss May" Saunders greeted her many old friends among the new class and won many new friends with her charming manner; however, despite "Miss May's" gracious efforts to put the Freshmen at ease, they were still rather nervous, because it was practically their first public appearance. From four until four-thirty o'clock the students continued to arrive, filling the house to overflowing. But since time rolls his ceaseless course, only too soon did the clock roll past four thirty and on to five o'clock. New friends bade one another and the host and hostess farewell, each taking with him those priceless treasures — friendship and memories of the joyful. Day of Days September the twenty-eighth was definitely an exciting day, the first Chapel assembly of the year. For the seniors it meant the official recognition of their status as they wove down the aisle in cap and gown. For the freshman it was simply First Assembly at the University. As the organ prelude began, a hush fell over the group gathered there. Came the impressive, colorful processional of the choir, faculty, and seniors, while the already assembled students participated with the martial strains of the old, ever-loved hymn "Onward Christian Soldiers." The Rev. W. F. Blackard gave the opening prayer. Doctor David A. Lockmiller once again welcomed all those present to the University of Chattanooga. He then introduced the Right Rev. Robert Campbell, Prior of St. Andrews at Sewanee. Rev. Campbell used as his topic for the Matriculation Day address "Getting Understanding." His entire talk centered around this one thought, "In thy getting, get understanding." Indeed a timely thought for those who were once more entering a school year. To the students he spoke in his live, laughing, serious, commanding voice—to the freshmen who needed advice previous to their four-year venture; to the seniors who were entering the last lap of college and who had faced problems, master of some, slave still to others; and to the sophomores and the juniors who were perhaps in a turmoil or a gulf or a rut. and oblivious of their lost position. With all his vitality he would have encouraged the students and brought them to see the beauty of education, the duty, the privilege of it. He told how Moses used his God- given rod to the furthering of the Giver's Kingdom. He went on to tell how we have God-given privileges and talents which we must likewise never waste. In destroying our potentialities, we destroy ourselves, and to an extent our fellow men. On the keynote, then, to Matriculation, the clue to civilization— progress—the audience filed out to the recessional played by Miss Mcllwraith, "The Christian Life."
