It has seemed wise to us to publish
in this week's editorial columns, along
with the work of the staff, some of
the opinions of men around the cam
pus, TO THE OLD MEN
According to official information,
men in the S, A. T. C. unit of Caro-
lina will soon be released from ser
vice. .With the demobilization of the
S. A. T. C. will come problems of
grave importance to every true and
loyal son of Carolina. One of these
problems is the one growing out of
the desire of S. A. T. C. men, espe
cially new men, to leave the Hill as
soon as they have their honorable
discharges in their hands. Every old
man can and should help to relieve
the faculty of the fear of results
from such conditions. Let every old
man help every new man to get the
Carolina snirit; Vipln him see that
conditions here this year are entire
ly different from those of preceding
years. Make him sea that, this cam
pus in normal times is one of the free
est and most pleasant spots in all
(Signed) C. T. S.
CONSIDER THE TEAM
Those who have been seeking the
present residence of the Carolina
Spirit will do well to look at the con
duct of the players in the V. P. I.
game. The way that those boys
fought during that game was an in
spiration and the spirit which they
put into that scrap was typical of
the old Carolina spirit to get there,
get there together and stay there
when' you arrive. Under an attack
of a force superior in weight, strength
and experience the team fought like
When all the students get together
and work with the same .co-operation
spirit that was characteristic of that
game then and only then will the
Carolina Spirit which was necessari
ly hampered this year by the restric
tions of the S. A. T. C. become once
more the famous Tar Heel brand.

THE YACKETY YACK
With the going of the S. A. T. C.
and the return of Carolina to her own
true self the question naturally arises
shall we have a Yackety Yack this
year. If we are to have the genuine
Carolina we must necessarily have all
the activities and publications for
which she has ever been famous. Of
all these it is certain that none is
more far reaching and more appre
ciated than the Yackety Yack.
Por the benefit of the new men
the Yackety Yack is the University
Annual which portrays our college
life, activities and experiences in
most real and vivid manner. It is the
record o.f each year's achievements;
It is true that the different organiza
tions and enterprises which have
helped support the Yackety Yack ir
the past are at present numerically
and financially weak. But shall wr
permit this cherished publication tc
perish without an effort to save it?
The University's campus life calls for
a 1919 Yackety Yack. Fellows
friends, and faculty, what shall be

THE TEAM AGAIN
In one thing at least, Carolina is
living up to the standard of former
times, while still under the S. A. T.
C. regime. The football this season
has shown the old pep and spirit
straight through, and the team de
serves the commendation of every
loyal Carolina man. In the game
against V, P. I. they showed the old
spirit in a hard fight against a much
heavier team, and lost with honor
one of the best games of the season.
In Thursday's game they had every
thing that could possibly make it hard
for them. They were greatly out
weighed by their opponents, the
weather was wretched, besides other
disagreeable circumstances which
need not be mentioned here.
They outplayed their opponents in
spite of the great difference in weight,
and the reverses in the last quarter
instead of discouraging them gave
them new spirit, and they truly
"marched down the field on to victory."
We are of the opinion that this
team with the setback on account of
influenza and other unavoidable re
verses, has done miraculously well,
and deserves to be set down with the
football heroes of Carolina.
(Signed) H. S. E.
After the game Thursday one of
the Camp Polk players was heard to
remark: "Age can never defeat
Youth". How true.
A WORD OF FAREWELL
Never before, have we, speaking for
the student body, realized the total
inadequacy of words to express some
thing we feel, something we want to
say, but a feeling that lies too deep
But, Captain Allen, as best we may,
we wish to express to you on parting
something of the admiration we hold
and will ever hold for you. You came
to us, Captain Allen, typifying the
spirit of the trenches. You came to
render a service a great service
and it was nobly rendered.
To us all you imparted a portion of
your wonderful enthusiasm and
aroused in us a zeal for carrying out
the plans you made for us.
We felt, somehow, as if we were
part of a mighty team working in
a spirit of glorious comradeship, and
the fact that we considered you our
comrade and at the same time ren
dered unfailing obedience to all your
commands, and held you in the high
respect due our leader this, Captain
Allen, is the highest compliment we
can pay you and the best illustra
tion we can give to show how marv
elously you included tact in all your
other qualities. ,
At this time a time when "Caro
lina Spirit" is a term that has as
sumed greater significance to us than
ever before, when we see more clear
ly than ever how exalted a spirit it
is we wish to say, Captain Allen
that you possess that spirit to the
highest degree. We can say no more.
With the intensest regret We your
friends, your comrades, say goodbye.
Your presence on the campus has
made the term "soldier and gentle
man" self-explanatory. Sir, we shall
never forget you.
Captain Allen had to conduct an ac
tivity demanding rigid discipline in a
community enjoying student freedom.
From the nature of the case -the dis
cipline of the student battalion and
its enthusiasm had to come ultimately
from him. He secured that discipline
and inspired that enthusiasm in full
measure, and he kept the unswervng
loyalty and 'devotion of the men un
der him. There simply wasn't any
body who didn't obey Captain Allen
to the best in him, and like him still
But that remark concerns only
Captain Allen's job. The bigger part
of any man's activities in a commu
nity like ours is what he gives that
isn't in the bill. And what Captain
Allen gave! He embodied for us
the spirit of the men on the firing
line. And he presented that embodi
ment at a time when we wanted some
body to focus our conceptions on
when we wanted to know what those
who had been "over there" were like.
The qualities we were reading about
Captain Allen had. I shall spate
him a list of them except the modesty,
the simplicity, and the good nature
that will remain as unforgetable to
us as some of his battalion talks.
, What I have still left to mention
may be characteristic of a man who
has seen as much of the world, as
Captain Allen must have seen. How
ever that be, his is the remarkable
distinction of one who came from a
distance to a strange community,
lived two years in it, and left it with
out ever having passed an unpleasant
criticism upon it.
Captain Allen came to a task that
required tact; he performed it skill
fully and gracefully; and he leaves it
with the affection of all who knew
him in it. There have been com
paratively few men who brought us
something that we couldn't quite
duplicate. Captain Allen is one of

RING IN THE NEW
It is but yesterday that we said in
wardly "Carolina spirit is not dead,
but sleeping." To many it did seem
so, for the extreme change from the
fine old freedom to the discipline of an
army post threw a chill over us.
But this is gone. A new and more
glorious day has dawned. The men
were willing to be curbed by discipline,
and to give their lives, for all hoped
to fight in France. They were set on
one thing fitting themselves for Of
ficers' Training Camps. The College
was secondary a means to an end.
But now the University is becom
ing again the thing it once was an
end in itself. The S. A. T. C. will
be over very soon, and the men who
have put duty before pleasure may,
under the new regime, feel the joy that
comes from living here with the glo
rious freedom of Carolina. The tide
has already turned. At the game
Thanksgiving day the pep was right
Such dauntless courage of the team
and splendid enthusiasm of the stu
dents would awake pep anywhere. It
was as fine as the pep of the 1917
game with Virginia. Our team, play
ing against odds, did wonderful work,
THE PHI SOCIETY HA.LL
With 35 men already initiated thus
far this year and another initiation on
for tonight, the work of the Phi So
ciety is well under way. Much en
chuslasm is being manifested at all
meetings and demobilization plans
make provision for even greater work
in both societies.
At the meeting of the Phi last
Saturday night a committee was ap
and the cheering showed how it was
The old men will now come trooping
back are already doing so. This com
ing spring we'll have U. N. C. back on
the map and it will stand out like the
Alps. We are so enthusiastic over
the fact that "the good old days" and
the. "good new days" will soon be
synonymous that we must stop here.
The S. A. T. C. has served its pur
pose, and we bid it farewell, we speed
the parting guest.
May the new year, 1919, dawn upon
a Carolina rejuvenated by the fires of
trial, and may Carolina again present
herself a glor'ous heritage of free
dom in a world that, thank God, has
ga;ned a democrcy of free men who
shall live together as comrades.
LET'S START THE
A thing that is perhaps missed most
by the old CaroLna man here this
year is the University Magazine. It
had a distinct place in the life of
the Campus. It filled a definite need
for a means of expressing student
sentiment. Perhaps even more than
The Tar Heel was it used as a medi
um for a free expression of thoughts
as they came to the student body at
large, for contributions could be made
by all. Sketches, stories, poetry, in
fact almost every kind of literary pro
duction was received and printed in
the Magazine. The Freshman class
of last year made a record for itself
in the number and excellence of the
contributions of its members.
But this year we have no Magazine.
For reasons that existed at the be
ginning of the year, it was decided
not to undertake the task of getting
out this important publication. The
need for it was recognized as being
just as great, if not greater than ever
before, yet because of certain dif
ficulties that arose under the military
system, and also because no one knew
how long he would be here, it was
thought unwise to start the Magazine
under such uncertain conditions.
But do these conditions exist now?
The war is over. Drill has been cuJ
down considerably, and S, A. T. C
work . is everywhere giving place t't
the now important regular college
work. The Literary Societies are
gaining new life. Chapel meetings
and a greater opportunity of associa
tion is bringing forth sparks of the
"Old Carolina Spirit." Recent garnet
have shown how much has been the
growth of this spirit in the last few
weeks. It is in view of such changes
as these that we believe we ought to
start the Magazine and run it as last
years. This is no longer strictly an
Army Pest. It is that, but it is more
than that. Regular college activities
are gradually coming back to their
normal place in the student's life. The
money to run the magazine can be
raised in some way. The Societies
could pay part, and as the Tar Heel
suggested recently, we ought not to
let the Magazine die "even if indi
vidual subscriptions must be resorted
to." The need for it is greater than
ever before. It's up to the old and
new men of Carolina to put this thing
across. T. C. T.
News has come to us all of the
speedy demobilization of the Students'
Army Training Corps. Frankly, we
are glad of it. We believe the corps
had its purpose but the day of its
usefulness is gone.
We think, further, that since world
events have happened as they have,
the demobilization of the S. A. T. C.
makes for the good of the University
and student body.
But now another . question arises.
How many of you new men, will
remain in college ? For if you remain,
you remain in college and not in a
We know now that practically all
the old students will remain to finish
The question rises now before
many of you new men what decision
must I make? New men, do not let
this question puzzle you any longer.
The right decision is the decision to
remain in college.
Why is it more important at this
particular time that a maft possess a
college education? This is the an
pointed to arrange an intra-society
debate. Poss bilities fof ei inlter
col.egiate debate were also discussed.
Resolved, "That Germany should be
allowed to get foreign .trade where
it can be had" was the query debated.

stiuggle has come another titanic
struggle the struggle of reconstruc
tive reconstruction. By this we mean
that all that has been destroyed must
be rebuilt stronger, better than ever
before. The man of this great new
age who leads the toilers will not be

man of the great broad vision the

For us all a glorious opportunity
has come. We have the opportunity
of ba ng tha Builders builders of this
great new age.
The colleges of America will be the
training schools of these men. And
nowhere is there a more vital spirit
through college life than here at our
own University. And this is essential.
For the cold, machine-like effie'ency
of the German University could not
produce this type of men.
But here here at Carolina a glo
rious, contagious spirit is radiating.
To all of us comes a time to de
cide "once to every man" and once
only. There can no longer be doubt
as to the proper course. New men,
stay in college. Stay at Carolina.
