The Tar Heel lays down
these rules for its guidance and
does not intend to depart from
them. It greatly regrets if it has
' made any deviation from these in
the past:' ist. It will publish
nothing that is scurrilous, or pro
fane, or in any way merited to
the refinement to language and
thought which should obtaiu at
the University. 2nd. It shall
not be a means of publishing the
abuse, or factions of one side or

the University. It does not deeam
it wise to publish family quarrels.
3rd. It does not deem it to be its
mission to enter into warfare with
the management of this institu
tion. Friendly criticism is help
ful and we will not fear to give
it but carping fault-finding does
no one good.
We have heard from good au
thority that there was to be a new
weekly started at the University.
We have also heard that this new
paper was the result of the re
fusal of the Tar Heel to print
certain articles submitted to it.
The present board of editors
wish to reiterate that so long as
they have control of the paper,
the columns shall not be used
as a medium for the airing before
the people of the State the petty
jealousies, or spites one person, or
party may hold against another
person or clique.
The Tar Heel will extend the
new sheet a most cordial welcome
to our limited field of journalism,
and will feel gratified to have, un
intentionally to be sure, stimu
lated more students into under
taking to "shove the quilL" If
properly conducted, this should
be but the beginning of a School
of Journalism in the University,
and we will congratulate our con
temporary, for thus augmenting
the progressiveness of the ',TJni-
As we go to press we catch a
! glimpse of the February Maga
zine. The table of contents, at
which we had but a moment to
glance, reads well. An extended
review is promised in our next
issue. - -
By request, we insert in an
other column an extract from' a
letter from a very prominent
young alumnus of the University.
We feel this to be very pertinent
Dr. Hume lectured in Salisbury
last week. The Charlotte Ob
server speaks of it as follows in
its Salisbury special. uDr. Thos.
Hume of the State University
lectured .in the Y. M. C. A. hall
here last night to a crowded house.
Every available seat was filled,
and some stood in the aisles
while others left for want of
room,. His lecture lasted a little
over an hour and was a fine pro
duction. It is highly spoken of
and those fortunate enough to se
cure room were well repaid for
LECTURE BY ELI PERKINS.
The Dialectic Society deserves
the thanks of the Student body
for the entertainment which it
furnished last Thursday. Mel
ville -D. Langdon, the famous
humorist, at the instance of. the
Di's. cameover from Durham and
delivered his "Philosophy of Wit
and H umor' to q ui te a lanre au
dience assembled in the Chapel.
The rumor had preceded "Eli"
that on some occasions his lec
tures smacked of unkind allusions
to the South, but whether or not
there has been foundation for this
report, it' is certain that no one
who attended the lecture had
cause for offense. In an easy il
lustrative manner the speaker de
fined and separated Wit and Hu
mor, Satire and Ridicule; show
ing that Humor is - the resultant
of faithful description of life
phases, and wit naught but some
presentation of deformed truth.
He furthermore showed the bene
ficial nature of Satire, in that er
ror is thereby exaggerated and
called into public condemnation,
and that Ridicule tends to destroy
truth. "EH" knows well how to
hold. his audience and amuse all
types of people. . V ; "' -v
THE CORNELL "JOKE."
It is a very easy matter to push
a . practical joke too far, The
horse-jokes of Sophomores and
Freshmen upon one another are
generally pressed too far. The
Cornell affair is one of the most
disreputable and criminal that wc
have heard of.
In their rush a few days ago,
the Sophomores were worsted,
the police interfering and rescu
ing them from, savage treatment.
In revenge, some of the Sopho
mores forced chlorine through
holes in the floor into the hall
where the Freshmen were hold
ing a banquet. The game bagged
by this joke was one poor inoffen
sive dish-washer, a woman, killed
and some eight or ten persons se
riously sickened. Any one who
knows how to prepare chlorine,
knows enough to understand its
deadly nature. Such a joke can
only be characterized as criminal.
The law will be allowed to take
its course in the punishment of

The much talked of reform ' of
j the foot-ball rules seems at last
well under way. Princeton, with
much modesty, declined to take
the lead, but requested the Uni
versity Athletic Club of New
York to call together; such foot
ball experts as she saw fit and let
them adopt such changes as
seemed wise. Yale joined with
Princeton in this request, and the
University Athletic Club con
sented to undertake the job.
A committee of five has been
named representing the five un
questionably leading institutions;
Camp, of Yale ; Moffat, of Prince
ton ; Brooks, of Harvard ; Bell,
of Pennsylvania, and Dashiell, of
Iehigh. These are men of rec
ognized ability and we feel as
sured that their deliberations will
result in much good to the game.
The Tar Heel will have one
more issue and then bide a wie
