SPRING TERM OFFENSIVE
GROUPS TO LEARN MUSKET,
BAYONET, BOMB FIGHTING
NEW TRIPODS READY
NEW BUGLES DONATED TO CORPS
The spring drive has "begun;
the offensive has been launched
against ' the strongholds of mili
tary ignorance. This new attack
is directed along the sector held
by the forces of Modern Warfare.
Flushed with victory over the
fundamental forces in their fall
attack, the veterans of the Caro
lina Battalion are eager for the
big push forward.
Capt. Allen says the morale of
his forces is splendid and that ho
expects great results this spring.
By the beginning of next week
the work of specialization will be
taken. up.. The battalion will be
divided into specialized groups to
carry on their own line of work.
These specialized groups will of-
fni lnofrnnf irvtia in OTKrinoDri'niv
musketry, bayonet fighting, bomb
ihg, special drill, and signalling.
After about a month's work of
specialization . the battalion will
return to the same company for
mations and take up further work
as a whole, in trench warfare, bay.
onet fighting, and firing on the
range. The men who qualify in
the special schools of bayonet fight
ing and musketry will probably
act as instructors when the whole
battalion goes into the study of
bayonet fighting and musketry.
Re-enforcements have just ar
rived in the form of an awkward
squad of 22 men. When these
men reach the necessary stage of
efficiency they will be placed in
the different companies to fill up

to become acquainted with the

Pneumonia Claims J, Mclver
Julian Mclver died of pneumo
nia at the Infirmary last Wednes
day morning between two and
ihreo o'clock. He had been in a
very critical condition for three
days, but was thought to be im
proving until late Tuesday night.
Then his condition changed for the
worse. His mother and brother,
of Sanford, were at his bedside
when he died. Captain Allen an
nounced the news in Chapel on
Wednesday morning. The an
nouncement brought a sense of loss
The battalion passed a resolu
tion to use the funds in the treas
ury to send flowers. C Company,
of which Mclver was a member,
met just after Chapel exercises
and chose a committee to take ap
propriate action in behalf of the
Company. This committee added
a wreath to the floral offerings.
Mclver was popular with all
who knew him. He was frank,
open, and possessed a fine strain of
loyalty in his friendship. He was
a member of the class of '20. Dearr
Stacy, in a tribute to the deceased,
said that he died in preparation
for the defense of his country- a
death as noble in spirit as a death
on the battlefield.

ING AND ACCURATE SHOOT
ING WINS FOR N. C.
ENTIRE SCHEDULE IS ANNOUNCED
The fast Carolina quint opened
its regular college season by crush
ing the Emory and Henry College
team here Thursday night 63-21.
Opening up with an amazing
bunch of good passes and accurate
shots, Carolina got the lead on the ,
visitors and never relinquished it,
The visiting team played a scrappy
game, but they were simply out
classed. The speedy University
five relied mainly on the short,
swift pass. This, together with
their ability to make every easy
shot count, netted them 38 points
to their opponents 7 in the first
The Emory and Henry team
started a spurt at the beginning of
the second half. Some pretty floor
work gained them five baskets in
quick succession. Then the Caro
lina defense tightened, and two
goals were the sum total of the re
mainder of the game. The visi
tors excelled in defensive work,
but they seemed to pin their faith
to long shots. Time and again
they secured the ball and worked
it down the floor, only to lose it in
a long try for the basket.

of play, with the exception of the
