The old, un pain ted, ugly, and
obstructive Central Hotel is
ih in of the past. No longer
from its dilapidated porch and
uncomfortable show rooms will
the alluriny displays of merchant
tailors beckon and entice the
unwary. No longer in front of
its cellar will the Bogerspread
their tempting: "peanuts, apples,
bananas, chewing gum, Hersey s
chocolates". In place of the old

will arise ami mc hjhm &iv...
step will have been taken in
building1 the greater University.
The first step was taken last
June when the Medical building,
named Caldwell Hall in honor of
the first president of the Univer
sity, was begun. This was the
first building to be erected out of
the new appropriation for buil
ding purposes made by the last
legislature. The building Will
be finished by the end of Febru
ary. It will be dedicated on the
8th of next May with exercises
that will bring prominent medi
cal educators from all over the
country to the University, The
building will afford laboratories
for histology, pathology, bacteri
ology, pharmacology, physiology,
atanomy, besides lecture rooms
and a library. For a time the
School of Pharmacy will also be
housed in the building. The
opening of the new building will
release six rooms for lecture pur
poses in the old Medical Building,
and ten dormitory rooms in the
New West Building. Nothing
could have been done which would
have relieved the cramped con
dition of the University in more
ways. The benefit to the School
of Medicine and the impetus
which will come to the depart
ment is incalculable.
The next great step was taken
when the Board of Trustees pur
chased from their respective
owners the two portions of the
Central Hotel property at the
west ot the north front of thc
campus and opposite the Univer
sity Inn, and the plot of four
acres south of the west entrance
to the campus. The new dormi
tories will be erected on the first
of these lots; the School of Edu-
cation will occupy wir nCwiv..
It is the purpose of the Univer
sity authorities to have the new
dormitory finished and ready for
occupancy by next September.
The Central Hotel has been torn
down during the past two weeks
Nothing is left now but a little
of the debris. Soon all that was

FAREWELL TO JUNIOR PROM
The Mighty Principles of Democracy Triumph;
1913 Maintains Its Unenvied
; Junior Prom is a thing of -the
past like the Central Hotel and
other unmitigated evils. The
class of l')13 b as risen in its
might and declared thatthisyear
at least what has been regarded
as the most important event of
Junior Week shall not take place.
Last Saturday, February 3, by a
vote of 40 to 27 .the, junior class
abolished the Prom.
The fight over the question was
started by R. W. Scott with a
motion that the Prom be done
away with, giving as"Hiis chief;
reason the fact that a majority, of
thejunior and senior classes do
not dance. T. J. Hoover followed
this up with more oratory; the
opposite view was upheld with
stirring eloquence by Walter
Stokes and M. T. Spears. When
the motion Was put to the class
the vote stood as shown above. '
The leaders of the opposition
based their contention on princi
ple alone- the principle that a
dance fs not representative. They
earnestly desired to e-ive the
seniors something, though their
ideas were a little hazy. A sug
gestion that each senior be given
two Pitkwick tickets was voted
down. Likewise "Beck" Tay
lor's motion to present each
senior with fifty cents. Finally
a committee was appointed to see
if some appropriate gift could not
be decided upon. Meanwhile
among the seniors there is weep
ing and wailing and gnashing of
teeth together with some cussing.:
The election of marshals was
uext taken up. F. H. Kennedy
won over I. R.jWilliams for chief
marshal by the close vote of 32
to 31. His assistants will be I.
R. Williams,FA. L. Hamilton, J.
S. Hunter, J. Y-tCaldwell, J. W.
Carter and D. J. Walker.
The question of the class ban
quet was postponed until , the
committee appointed to settle
upon a gift for the seniors should

torian in place of M. L. Ritch
who did not return to college.

Outplays Virginians at Every Point. The Sec
ond Half a Complete
Our basketball team put up a
spirited fight Friday night and
defeated Virginia Christian Col
lege 43 to 17. " In the : first half
the'two teams played close, but
Carolina showed superiority from
the start. The first half ended
18 to 15 in our favor. In the
second half, U. N. C. was right
there; we just couldn't stop scor
ing till time was called. Fancy
plays, quick action, and good,
consistent team work piled up a
score of 25 points and prevented
the opponents from throwing a
single field goal. From our
standpoint the game, as a whole,
was snappy andjntersting.

Fourth Star Course
The fourth of the Star Course
entertainments of the year will
take place in Gerrard Hall Feb.
9th, when Edwin Brush, the
mighty magician and mind enter
tainer, will give his performance
before the University audience
The entertainment promises to
be among the best of the Star
Courses this year. A magician
always draws a crowd, and Brush,
the Great, is said to be one of the
most wonderful students of the
of the mysterious occidental and
oriental magic and weird Hindoo
illusions. The entertainment is
composed of mystery, wit. music,
comedy, art, and science. Brush
brings with him but one assistant,
but be carries with him a large
quantity of baggage and stage set
tings that will transform the Ger
rard Hall platform., The inter
tainment will be well worth the
price of admission.

1912 AT ITS FARE-
Seniors Gather to Associate,
to Celebrate, and to
THE AFFAIR AT THE INN A SUCCESS
Friendship and Good Fellowship,
Tinged Just Enough With the Sad
ness of Farewell, Draw the Seniors
Into Closer Union
Last Friday night in the
dining hall of the University
Inn the senior class assembled to
gether for the last banquet of its
urdergaaduate days. Under the
spell of a tempting menu, the
influenceof good speeches, and the
aroma ot fragrant tobacco the
members of the class loosened tip,
the feeling of friendship grew
closer, and the sense of brother
hood and comradeship keener.
The joy of living spread itself
abroad. The s p i r i t of 1912
mounted high. Yet over all was
a tinge of sadness, a feeling of
farewell. In almost every speech
was the theme, whether expressed
or not, ','the day of our depar
ture is drawing nigh."
The spirit and the purpose of a
senior banquet were admirably
expressed by Toastmaster - Bob
Freeman. They are to associate,
to celebrate, and to communicate. -,
They are to strengthen the ties
of friendship and to set loose the
currents of fellowship; to cele
brate our superiorities and our
victories, our achievements and
successes of four years life at
Carolina; finally, to communicate
our best ideas and thoughts, to
discuss our best ideas and
purposes for the future that lies
before us. j
The banquet in every wny and
for ' eveaW' Cuesent fulfilled its
purpose. 1 o begin with, the
toastmaster was a peach. He
presided with g-race and with wit
and jolity. His every phase

l'romhiin even as doth water from
a duckling. His happy intro
ductions did much to turn the
crowd alousc. And then the
menu was a sweet satisfaction to
the souls and othcr parts of the
hungry. Added to all this the
speeches were good, short and to
Professor Williams was the first
of the facufty members to speak.
He talked about football, and for
the reason, lie said, that its con
dition, almost alone of the many
activities carried out Here, is' not
satisfactory. " He spoke not in
the spirit of criticism but for the
good of the sport. He urged, in
the first place, that the seniors
and the other students of the
University be on the lookout for
good material from the prepara
tory schools of the State. , In this
connection he mentioned the case
of a good football player in one
of the State prep schools who
when asked by an alumnus dur
ing a passing conversation to
come here, had replied that that
was the first time Caralina had
been mentioned to him as a de-
