THE RANGE FINDER
The Range Finder, a pamphlet
published by the English 21 class,
made its first appearance on the
campus ' Tuesday night. It is a
novel undertaking which has met
a great success at the start. The
Range Finder contains numerous
articles dealing with the war and
changes in our every day life
which have grown out of the war.
It is said that the new publication
will become a permanent factor
on the Hill.
The Range Finder has drawn
much favorable comment for the
faculty and students and is said
to have won its place among the
other publications here.
"Got two bits?"
"How about starting on a thrift
card." LTere's a chance for every
one to do his bit for the govern
ment, and at the same time make
a safe and paying investment. You
have read the news article in this
issue of the Tar Heel? And still
you say, "Why should I do this ?"
You should do it because it is
the most practical method of rais
ing a loan for the government. It
does not touch the money already
tied up in business, but gathers in
the surplus change which is not
invested , in any business. The
money needed by the government
will be raised by those most able
to lend it. Only a small class can
reach down and fork up a big
sum, but millions of people all
over the country can lay aside each
day, or week, their two bits, a half,
or .a bone, and never miss it.
Now look at it from a personal
standpoint. Is there any safer
investment than in government
bonds ? Is this system not an
easier and much more convenient
method of saving your loose
change than any savings account
system you now know of?
Then; don't delay. : Go to the
post office and get your Thrift
Card. Take it home and persuade
the home folks to start one, too.
Talk the thing up and put the
chink down. Stick to it and
make the stamps stick too.
The Senior class has resolved
to act as so many agents for this
enterprise. . Every man in the
University ought, to do his part
in helping the government and
himself at the same 'time.
Those at home will be watch
ing you (you who have been off
to college for the first time).
Would anything please them more
than to find you alive and awake,
and . interested in things larger
than yourself and your communi

Basketball Outlook Bright
There are indications which
point towards a universally sue
cessf ul basket ball season this
year. Though the two games with
the Durham Y. M. C. A. can hard
ly be regarded as important in re
vealing the real strength of the
team, yet they offer good ground
for an estimate of the men and the
Carolina defeated the Y. M. C.
A. boys here by the score of 66-13,
and in Durham on their own
floor by a score of 42-25. Elon
defeated Durham "Y" 55-24 at
Elon. Elon usually has a team
that compares favorably with any
in the state. Carolina, then, is
showing up well in comparison to
the other state colleges.
Individually the team is com
posed of men who have had at least
three years experience in basket
ball, both in college and in prep
school. Tennent (Capt.) is a let
ter man of last year, and has had
four years experience in basket
ball. He is fast, an accurate pass
er, and a good shot. Cuthbertson,
the other guard, has had two years
experience on the scrubs, is very
fast, and he is developing into a
great running mate for Tennent.
Liipfert, at center, is the only man
on the team who has not had a long
preparation in high school. How
ever, he uses his height to advan
tage, shoots well, and can be de
veloped into a great center. Lynch
and Perry, at forwards, are both
seasoned men of last year's squad.
Both are excellent shots, and work
the floor systematically. Carmi-
chaeL, sub forward, of the last two
year's Durham High team, is very
fast and accurate, and he is run
ning the forwards for their plaees.
Moris is a good sub-guard,' a little
slow but very sure at passing. The
squad, by a process of self-elimi
nation) is now composed of 18
men, and practice is expected to
continue all through the examina
"The Monroe Message" was the
subject of a highly interesting and
instructive paper read by T. J.
Brawley at the regular fortnightly
meeting of the Latin-American
Club Monday night.
Mr. Brawley told .of the favor
able reception of the Doctrine in
the Latin-American Countries,
having called attention to the un
willingness of President Monroe
to recognize the South American
Countries at first because they had
not established a settled govern
Doubtless some members of the
freshman class have changed their
minds as to the advisability of
having small closets adjoining
classrooms. On the Friday after
Thanksgiving there were only a
few freshmen in a class of Eng
lish 1. All but two of these put
their themes on the table and hid
in a little closet that adjoined the
lecture room in Old East, think
ing to get a "grat" when the in
structor arrived and found the
papers but not the boys. ' When
Mr. Leonard came in, however,
the two members of the class who
had not gone in the closet engaged
in conversation with him for the
whole period, keeping the goats
penned up in the closet, with not
even standing room.
Vergil Wilson, '18, who for the
past few months has been at work
at Hopewell, Virginia, leaves soon
for work in aviation.
Drills Give Way to Quizzes
"Skull practice," has been the
feature of the military work since
the snow arrived on the campus.
Lectures, quizzes, and conferences
have been the order of the day for
the last week. As a result, there
have been scenes of concentrated
question firing and many mental
casualities have occupied. The
examination on the course will be
held January 15.
Bayonet drill was begun in
Commons Hall the past week and
each company in turn was under
Capt. Allen's instruction for half
an hour while the other three com
panies were on tactics classes. At
these drills Capt. Allen showed the
companies how to cut 'the Boche
with dainty thrusts and never mar
his looks. Capt. Allen also took
the men through the English
method of calisthenics and had the
fellows working like jumping
The work after the examinations
will be training in the finer arts of
modern warfare and will consist
of bombing, bayonet drill, and
work on the rifle range. Dummy
hand grenades of the Mills type
which the Canadians have used on
the western front .with such great
success will be used here and every
man will be taught the correct way
to lob the little machine. Dum
mies and tin cans will be placed
for use in the last stages of bayo
net drill. With the new Spring
field rifles which have already ar
rived Capt. Allen says it will be
great sport jabbing tin cans and
sandbags. The range will be com
pleted after 'the examination period
and every man will be given the
opportunity of firing at least fifty
rounds at the bull's-eye.

ENLISTMENT OF STUDENTS
IN THE TECHNICAL SCHOOLS
The Provost Marshal General
has sent the following telegram to
the governors of all States:
Section 151, Selective Service
Regulations, is amended by the
addition of sub-paragraph D as
"Under such regulations as the
Chief of Engineers may pre
scribe a proportion of the students,
as named by the school faculty,
pursuing an engineering course in
one of the approved technical en
gineering schools listed in the War
Department, may enlist in the En
listed Reserve Corps of the Engi
neer Department and thereafter,
upon presentation by the registrant
to his local board of, a certificate of
enlistment, such certificate shall
be filed with the Questionnaire
end the registrant shall be placed
in Class 5 on the ground that he
is in the military service of the
The following announcement
from "The Official Bulletin" of
December 11th, should be of es
pecial interest to all technical stu
dents in the University.
This amendment has a very
much more vital significance for
the future welfare of the country
than appears in the context. It
means briefly that the government
has finally recognized the supreme
importance to the country of the
engineer. It means that the gov
ernment has recognized that this
war is essentially an engineer's
war, and that the engineer is the
man, above all others, whose par
ticular job it is to win the war.
It means more even than that. It
means that the government recog
nizes that after the war has been
won, "the man of the hour" wili
be the ".engineer, whose almost in
superable task it will be to re
build the world well nigh destroy
ed by his own perverted tools in
the hands of a ruthless, inhuman
horde of barbarians.
To the young man then with the
proper qualifications for success as
an engineer there is no greater
opportunity offered for service to
his country than by enrolling now
in one of the recognized engineer
ing schools, in the course in engi
neering to which he seems best
adapted, pursuing his course dili
gently and resolutely with the
knowledge that he is doing his
own particular "bit" towards mak
ing the world safe for democracy.
This he may do with the assur
ance that if he makes good he will
not be disturbed by the selective
service laws until he has com
pleted his training, for, as the reg
