HE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA Volume XXVI. , No. 17 CHAFEL HILL, N. C, SATURDAY, FEB. 2, 1918 Price, Five Cents ii AK BATTALION STARTS BIG 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 the vacancies. About thirty wooden tripods, which are to be used for rifle rests in determining the triangle of er ror, have been made and are stored in the rifle rooms at headquarters. These stands, Capt. Allen says, will"' be used indoors when the weather is bad and outdoors in good weather. The band has a new room fitted up for its own use at Headquar ters where some of the instru ments will be kept and practices will be ' held. , Through 'Lieut. Leonard Mrs. John Stuart Ken nedy, of New York City, has pre sented to the Bugle Corps four handsome bugles. The members of the Bugle Corps are highly pleased'with the new instruments and have expressed great apprecia tion of Lieut.

Students Editorial Work Wins Publicity Regular Space in Greensboro Daily News Reserved for English 29-30 Students Editorials in 'the Sunday, Jan. 20th, edition of the Greensboro Daily News by members of the class of English 29-30, have serv ed to call attention to the widen ing activity of University men. By these publications a new ave- mue of contact with the affairs of he State has been opened up for the University. Through the efforts of Prof. R. II. Thornton, who is in charge of 'lie class in newspaper editorial writing, the Greensboro News has offered to reserve a space in its editorial page each week for se lected articles by members of the class. The editor of the News in commenting upon these articles says that the paper intends to make their publication a perma nent arrangement, in order that the thoughtful men and women of the state may have an opportunity to become acquainted with the viewpoint of young college men. In the editorial page of Sun day, Jan. 20, were published two columns by the editorial class in cluding articles by J. C. Kennedy, R. L. Young, William Bailey, W. H. Williamson, G, E Crissman. Over 275 high schools have en rolled in the High School Debat ing Union thus far, and all indi cations point to a most successful state-wide debate this year on the question of compulsory arbitra tion of industrial disputes. April 11 and 12 are the dates set for the finals in the Gth annual contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup. High school week will also be featured by the sixth annual inter-scholas tic track meet and the third inter- scholastic tennis tournament. ON TO BLUE RIDGE ! 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 to everyone. 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.

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 half. 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. Cpach Peacock seiitjn Jiis entire, second team in the last five minutes of play, with the exception of the center. The scrubs showed up well, making three baskets in as many minutes.
