TIIE BASKETBALL TEAM
Basketball is the only varsity
activity at present. Possibly it
may be the only variety activity of
the year. It is necessary that the
. University be well represented in
" this single activity.
- Th'3 success of the basektball
team depends, first on the work of
the players and coach, and then on
the spirit of the entire University.
No matter how efficient a team is
if it does not have the fire and en
thusiasm of the school behind it, it
will fall below the level.
' But fire and enthusiasm does
not have , tp be loud and noisy.
There is a certain dignity and re
serve about real enthusiasm. Lets
get behind the team with real en
thusiasm and let them know it.
Attend the games and demand that
the team gives yon the best' it has

Students, faculty, and towns
people were deeply touched by the
death of Julian Mclver, a member
of the class of '20, Tuesday night.
Bright, friendly and agreeable at
all times, Julian was . well known
. by all, and his sudden death
brought an atmosphere of sadness
over the campus. The class of '20r
the Battalion, and personal friends
showed their deepest sympathy by
sending flowers and representa
tives to the funeral.
TOILERS BY THE SEA
Since the sinking on Tuesday
last of the "Everleak,"' owned by
the Trans-Slippysloshi Ferry Co.,
the situation in the shipping
world has become even more acute.
As we .'remember, the "Everleak",
plying between Apostles Point and
Patterson's Cove, was caught in
th? fog and mistaking Ash-barrel
light ; for Eubanks Shoal, ran
aground with the consequent loss
On the day following, while
sounding for the channel which
had shifted during the storm, the
government cutter, Pepsicola, ar
rived just in time to pick up the
majority of the khaki-clad boys
from Emerson Field who had gone
down in mid-stream on board the
Many people have been specu-
lating on better weather and so say
the situation will be remedied
shortly; but Pudd'nhead Wilson
says January is an unlucky month
to speculate in anything. The oth
' er unlucky months are June, Sep
tember, April, October, March,
November, May, February, Au
gust, July and December.
In view of the two disasters
mentioned above, the Tab Heel is
in favor of floating bonds for the
construction of a municipal under-
river tube; for one sees at a glance
that the present ferries are unable
to cope with the Slippysloshi in
PUBLIC HEALTH WORK DISCUSSED
"County Health Work" and
"Public Health Nurses in North
Carolina" were thoroughly dis
cussed at the regular fortnightly
meeting of the North Carolina
Club Monday night by Dr. B. E.
Washburn, of the State Health
Board, and Dr. L. B. McBrayer,
superintendent of the State Sani
tarium. Both speakers empha
sized the necessity of having prop
erly trained public health nurses
in North Carolina to teach the peo
ple how to prevent the spread of
disease, and spoke at length on
the importance of the -work, accom
plished in the past by the State
and county boards of health.
The State Board of Health, the
University of North Carolina co
operating, will in the early spring
open a school for the training of
public health nurses, according to
Dr. McBrayer. The school will
probably be located in Raleigh. It
is thought this school will meet the
ever increasing demand for pub
lic health nurses, there being only
65 in North Carolina at present,
i Dr. Washburn, in speaking of
the county health work in North
Carolina, said that this State
ranks high among the health or
ganizations of the country, and
easily leads the health boards in
the South in progressiveness.
"The chief opposition encount
ered, in doing county health work,"
Dr. Washburn said, "springs from
the fact that a great majority of
thr citizens ignore the laws of hy
giene and sanitation. Many citi
zens in--every- rural community
are averse to putting aside the fal
lacies concerning health, disease,
and medicine, which they have be
lieved and have heard all their
Another reason for opposition
to county health work lies in the
fact that the people at large have
not yet learned that health conser
vation produces a greater moneta
ry return than any other invest
ment, the speaker asserted.
LOCAL TALENT TO PRESENT PLAY

PLEASING LYCEUM CONCERTGIYEN
The first of the Y. M. C. A.'s
Lyceum attractions was staged
riffht in the middle of exams. The
Three Artists gave a light and en
tertaining program to an audience
of about a hundred. The manager
states that the show was given at
a loss to the Association but served
its purpose to relieve the tension
of exams for those who felt the
need of such relief.
Miss De Marco's sketches on the
piano were rather clever. The vio

REVISED SCHEDULE OF
"If you. were twenty-one years
old, had just been drafted, and I
called you into my office to offer
you the very job that you could
do best, would you take the offer?
Why, my office would not hold the
men that would crowd into it." :
With the foregoing statement
President Graham opened his
short talk in chapel last Monday.
"Carpe Diem" was the theme of
the talk. Dr. Graham declared
that the government had recently
and very specifically put the fore
going query to him. The govern
ment asked him if he would throw
open the doors of the University
from the first of May to the first
of October in order that it might
train the men now in the camps,
who can learn things here, but who
can do nothing in the camps.
"But we are full up here," said Dr.
Graham. We are here learning to
fill some of those 50,000 jobs effi
ciently. Each man here can' fill
one of these jobs efficiently. These
s: fortunate circumstances are
those for the University man to
take adantage of now. When Un
cle Sam calls for us, we will be fit
for his work.
Dick Mitchell has left to enter
the aviation corps.

of public service' to quote Dr.
Graham, "is the wisest possible in
a democratic state. To strength
en public institutions so that the.
extent and quality of their service
may give to the youth of the State
that equality of opportunity, that
equality of preparation and inspi
ration assures. With equal in
sight, Mrs.' Bingham saw that the
strength of an educational institu
tion in rendering service of dis
tinction depends absolutely on the
strength of its faculty."
