YOUR TAR HEEL
Another year and your Tar
Teel ! What are you going to do
with it ? , Let a few individuals
edit it or are you going to get
behind it and make it yours, a
truly representative University
The new board can only reflect
your ideas in so far as you are
willing to' give them. Without
your support the Tar Heel can
not measure up to its proper stan
dard or attain its highest purpose.
The Tar Heel will be glad to
get any contribution, suggestion or
criticism during the year. There
will be an open column reserved
each week for this purpose.
Your paper depends on you for
its real success. Are you willing
to do your part?
THE UNIVERSITY AND THE WAR
: In spite of the prediction of
many that Carolina would be to
tally wrecked this year, with a re
gistration below four hundred and
no form of athletics whatever
nearly a thousand students have
Only varsity football has been
temporarily dropped. ' Varsity
baseball, basketball and track
managers are working out sched
ules for their respective branches
and a regular First Year football
schedule is being arranged. There
is every indication that Carolina
will have a full and active year in
In place of varsity football there
will probably be a strong class
series arranged. We believe that
such a class series, if entered into
with the spirit which has guided
varsity football, will mean much
to the life of the University.
With the drill, baseball, basket
ball, track, a rigid class football
series, and a thousand students to
take part, either in spirit or per
son it is 'evident that some were a
bit too exacting in their predic
tions. An incomplete list of Univer
sity students and alumni who
have entered the active service of
the government shows that nearly
three hundred have recived com
missions ranging from Lieutenant
to Major. Over a hundred and
fifty University men are enrolled
in the new camp at Oglethorpe,
and many more have entered the
service as privates. Nine 'mem
bers of the faculty are included in
this list. '
Even with this contribution to
the cause of our country, Carolina
faces a great year and a full year.

George, Premier of Great Britian
has said, "Wherever I go I hear
nothing butg ood of the work the
Young Men's Christian Associa
tions are doing throughout .the
country, and we owe it a very deep
debt of gratitude. Whatever legal
duties may be imposed upon us a.3
citizens, there will always be plen
ty for voluntary effort to do.
Therefore, I am glad to see the
work which the Association is do
ing throughout the conutry."
Carolina men could supplement
the premier's statement.
Infant Freshman Class
Seventeen is the average age of
the Freshman class, as shown by
the report of 'Dr. Lawson's physi
cal examination of the new men.
This shows that the Freshman
class is getting younger, for in
1915 the average age was 19 and
in 1916 it was 18.
The range in the weight of the
newc lass is wide, going from 73
pounds to 213, but the average is
below the averages of the last three
years. The lung capacity was
however above 215, the average of
a business man. One man blew
the high record of 360.
Out of 175 men examined up
until Thursday afternoon 125
have chosen the course in military
science in preference to the regu-
ar Freshman gym work. Six
more were rejected, two of whom
were turned down on account of
age. They were 15 and the doctor
thought that the strain would be
The assistants in the gym for
the coming year will be Bob
Devereaux and Sam Ravenel.

CONDITIONS PRES. GRAHAM
WELCOMES NEW MEN
The formal opening of the Uni
versity took place in Memorial
'Hall Thursday morning. The
meeting was held primarily as a
welcome to the new men, and as a
stimulus for all students to put
forth their best efforts in the face
of the national crisis.
Dean Stacy, the first speaker,
discussed the relationship .the life
of the University held to the na
tion. "Hitherto' said ; Dean
Stacy in part, "the University has

ity practically independent and unr

ful and consistent conservation of
time and by an economical mode
President Graham, on behalf of
the University, welcomed the new
men to her doors. In discussing
the personal relation of the new
men to-the University, President
Graham called attention to the new
ideals of the campus brought about
by the entrance of America into
the war, and petitioned them to
keep and uphold the trust of de
