The work for the re mainder of this college year will be divided into two quarters, and the schedule of courses will be so ar ranged that a student may begin at the opening of the winter quarter and pursue courses as complete units during these quarters. - Many courses hitherto three hours per week will be offered for five or six hours per week, so that full instruction in these sub jects may be assured. By this ar langement it will be possible for old students to continue their college work at the point at which they left it. No advantage will be gained, by wait ing until the opening of another col lege year. From the standpoint of academic credit, courses will count for the two quarters and in the same pro portion as in the past. New students, who are prepared for nt-ance to col lege, may register and complete two thirds of their year's work instead of cne-half, as formerly. Rooms for the Winter and Spring terms. may be reserved at the Treas urer's office on December 10th, by signing rcom contract and mak'ng ini tial payment of $5 on room rent by each intending occupant. Preference on any particular room will be given to those who had reserved the room before September 1st, provided they apply on December 9th. After that date the room will be ass'gned to the first applicants. The fees for the Winter and Spring terms are as follows: Academic .

A. T. C. Selects Permanent Officers Both companies of the non-S. A. T. C. have lately shown great im provement, doubtless due to the fact that the officers of the organization have been permanently appointed and the unit is, now on a more established basis than ever before. The officers commissioned and non-commissioned, who were appointed are as follows: Co. E S. C, Ogburn, Captain; T. J. Wilson, 1st Lieutenant; Jacobi, 2nd Lieutenant; Williams, 1st Sergeant; Hill, 2nd Sergeant; Burr, 3rd Ser geant; Hagood, line Sergeant. Co. F A. H. Pell, Captain; H.

While opening the meeting Dr. Chase announced that his capacity on this occasion would be quite similar to that of a bulletin board. Many in teresting and important announce ments were made in regard to credits for work done this fall, organization of academic classes, plans for next term, etc. Occcrdmg to Dr. Chase, credit w'll be 'given in war courses pursued by the men this fall, and which do not cr-mp. in the regular requirements for an A. B. degree. For every hour of work taken one hour of credit will be given. Thus a 3 hour course in a sub ject, w'll render a student 1 hour of credit for the work done by a man during the fall term toward his final erraduat'nn. The work done on tlr drill field by the S. A. T. C. men will render 1 hour's credit toward gradua tion. Final examinations on the fall work begin Monday, December 16, and end December 20. The Christmas va cation begins December 20. Registra Hon days for the spring term are January 2 and 3, and regular clasp work begins the fourth. Beginning with the spring term, the courses of fered a-e to be so altered that Jun iors and Seniors can secure the cred:ts needed for their graduation. Th" Sophomore and Freshman classes will take such work as is needed t fulfill the'r requirements. The samp method of giving credits for work wiP be in vogue as during the fall. This spring term will end about the last March when final examinations will (Continued on Page 3) Prof. P H. Dagget S. A. T. C. Director Prof. P. H. Dagget, head of the depaitment of Electrical Eng.neer ing, has been appointed district di rector of the S. A. T. C. for the South Atlantic States, to succeed the late President E. K. Graham. Presi dent Mathewson, of the Georg.a School of Technology, who was ten dered the appointment by the ' Com mittee on Education and Special training, thought it unwise to accept at this time. Professor Daggett, having been intimately connected with the work of the S. A. T. C, as chairman of the committee on edu cation and special training, at Wash ington, during the past summer, and director of the S. A. T. C. at the University this fall is eminently quali fied to fill the position made vacant by the death of President Graham. Professors Daggett and Hamilton, the latter being regional director of the war issues course, returned last week from Washington, where hey had attended the S. A. T. C. meet ing. . . All college authorities were not in favor of disbanding the S. A. T. C, according to Professor Daggett, though the majority approved such a move. It was costing the govern ment over half a million dollars a day, The good results were consider ably offset by the influenza epidemic and by the fact that entirely new ma chinery had to be created by the war department for its operation. A tre mendous amount of work was in volved, Professor Daggett states. DI SOCIETY ELECTS EDITOR YACKETY YACK At a meeting of the Di Society Saturday night, twelve new men were initiated. This brings the total of initiates to approximately 24. Following Messrs. Coker and Wil liams engaged in a spirited debate on the question "Should Germany be Admitted into the League of Na tions?" Mr. Coker, representing the affirmative, won. 'Mr. Grisett made a humorous ora tion. He was followed or the pro gram by Mr. Stewart, who dalivenl an impromptu oration and gave several selections from poetry. Mr. Tom Simmons, '08, made an interesting talk, urging men to stay in college and get the "Spirit". In the business of the evening it was decided, if possible, to continue the publication of the Yackety Yack. W. C. Eaton was elected editor-in chief.' Coach Marvin Ritch, who has been training the University football squad this season, to Chapel Hill several weeks ago to be with him during the remainder of the football season. While returning from Raleigh, where Mr. and Mrs. Ritch had been visiting relatives, she was suddenly taken ill on the train and carried to Watts Hospital, Durham. Her condi tion became suddenly worse Saturday night and the end on Sunday was not unexpected. LARGE AUDIENCE HEARS PROF. Wi STARR MYERS NOTED CAROLINA GRADUATE SPEAKS ON "AFTER THE WAR WHAT?" NOT THE LAST WAR, IS CLAIMED Germany Unrepentant; Beware of Foolish Sentiment Be Just, Not Lenient How shall we meet post-war prob lems and rearrange matters on a peace basis? was the theme of an interesting and instructive lecture de livered by Professor William Starr Myers, of Princeton University, in Gerrard Hall Monday night, December 2nd. The formal subject of the lec ture was: "After the war what?" Doctor Archibald Henderson in in troducing Professor Myers spoke of him as an alumnus of the University who has made an enviable reputa tion for himself in the educational world. Of especial interest to stu dents here is the fact that he is the author of our college song "Hail to U. N. C." which was first sung by the glee club at his graduation in 1897. Professor Myers now holds the chair of Professor of Politics at Princeton: formerlv held by President Wil son. During the past year he de livered lectures thruout the country on subjects deal'ng with politics, his tory, and the war. Professor Myers paTd a tribute to the University when he said that a varied experience has taught him fliat the advantages offered by the University are equal to any offered by any other college in the country. "The cost of the war to the United States," sa:d Professor Myers, "has been twenty billion dollars and ' wf have leaned our allies ten b'llions This fact alone should cause us to take " keen 'ntei-est in our debtor 'nation There has been and still is economic and political bends of unron betweer us. But the most important factor that binds us together is a spiritua1 unity, the tie that binds nations to gether.

GRAHAM Memorial services in honor of the late Dr. Graham, president off the University, will be held in Gerrard Hall, Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Professor M. H. Stacy, faculty chair man, will preside. Among' the speakers on the program are Professor H. H Williams, of the University faculty, who will speak on the subject: "President Graham As the University Knew Him." Mr. R D. W. Connor, of Ralleigh, president of the General Alumni Association, will speak on "President Graham . as the Alumni Saw Him." Dr. C.

M. there will be a meeting in the auditorium of Peabody Hall of all those interested in Dramatics. It is the purpose of this meeting to interest the students in the formation of "The Carolina Playmakers," which is to be ! tt- :j j -i . j a university ana vommuniiy organi zation for the product'on of plays il lustrating North Carolina folk-life. At this preliminary meeting the names will be taken of all these interested in any form of Dramatic Art, acting, play-writing, costuming, stage con struction, scene-painting, etc. Profes sor Koch will present the plans of the new organization at the meeting and will show some slides of scenes taken from folk plays produced by the Da-, kota Playmakers of which he is the founder. Prof. McKie, director of last year's Dramatic Association, will speak about dramatic history at the University. The Carolina Playmakers is to be a community movement in which prob lems of production will be worked out by "home talent" and its membership will comprise all those interested in working along any line of stagecraft It is planned to carry the idea of community production of North Caro lina plays all over the state for the people that they may eventually help in producing the life and characters of cur state on the stage in many com mun'ties. The first production will be given as soon as possible after the Christ mas vacation and will consit of p program of three one-act plays deal ing with North Carolina life selected from those which have been written this term by members of Professor (Continued on Page 2) Carolina Eleven Made Creditable Showing After an absence of one year the Carol na eleven entered the field with a team that made a most creditable showing. Working under the handi cap of restrictions necessarily imj-! posed by the S. A. T. C. on the men the team overcame the seemingly unsurmountable odds and made good in a very positive manner. The season cpened with a game with the old rival of Carolina, Wake For est, and the Tar Heels experienced little difficulty in romping away with the bacon by the score of 13 to 7. After an interesting game between the teams representing Companies A and B against C and E), the next op ponent to face Carolina was the ag gregation representing the Camp Greene Remounts. This proved to be the most lopsided event of the season and the Tar Heels walked on Camp Greene's neck for a total of 53 while the Remounts were garnering an un lucky 13. The team next met Davidson at Winston-Salem and received a defeat, the first of the season, at the hands of the Presbyterians, in a very close game. The next and last defeat which came to Carolina was the drubbing ad ministered by the heavy V. P. I. team. Carolina put up a wonderful fight but the vastly superior weight of the Techs finally told and Carolina lost the best game of the season. The last game was played on Thanksgiving Day under a threaten ing sky and in a veritable sea of mud. Camp Polk was the victim and the white-Wash was applied by the Tar Heels with the score of 12 to 0. The O. T. C.'s put up a . stiff fight but their fforts were of no avail against the terrific fighting spirit of the Caro lina warriors. Among the outstanding features of the season is the success which crowned the efforts of a team made up almost entirely of new men. Since Carolina had no varsity football last year, she had to start the season without the nuclecus of even one let ter man. This was a handicap that can hardly be overestimated and it is to the credit of every man on the team that this season is one of which Caro lina has every right to be proud. In the line the work of Brown, Cap tain Gant, Carter, Holt, McQueen, and Nichols was of the highest order. In the backfield Pharr, Fearring ton, Lowe, Herty and Gibson played a brilliant game, and much of the credit for the season is due to their effortr Coach Ritch had an abundance of good material to work on this year but no letter men, this fact, although a handicap, was not positively pro hibitive to a successful team, as was forcibly demonstrated in all of the games. In view of the existing conditions the season may be called a success in the best sense of the word and not one iota of the season's record is detri mental to the highest traditions of a Carolina team with all that that means. DEMOBILIZATION WORK TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED BY THE NON-ARRIVAL OF RE LEASE BLANKS; EXPECTED TO ARRIVE HOURLY INTENSIFIED STUDY PROBABLE Courses May Meet More Frequently Reductions of Courses Per Student As the Tar Heel goes to press only limited news can ' be gathered con cerning the demobilization of the S. A, T. C. The work of physical exami nation is going on rapidly and stead ly, the cruns have all been turned in, extra clothing, etc. A slight delay has been caused by the non arrival of discharge blanks but these are ex pected hourly and it is probable the work of demobilization will be well under way by the time the Tar Heel leaves the press. The demobilization of the unit will be speedily effected, it is thought. The plan is to demobil ize Cos. A, B, C, and D on successive days, It has been announced that one uni form may be retained and worn four months after demobilization. It has been further announced that bedding may be kept until Christmas by the deposit of ten dollars. This money, of course, is refunded when the bedding is turned in. The University further announces the division of the college year into quarters. The schedule has been so arranged that a student may enter col lege after the holidays and pursue courses as complete units during these courses. Nothing will be gained, it is announced, by waiting for the be gining of another college year. Courses will count for the two quart ters, from an academic standpoint, and in the same proportion as in the past. New students may register af ter the holidays and receive credit for two thirds of a college year. Of interest to the old students is the announcement that many courses formerly three hours weekly will be changed to five and six hours weekly in order that full instruction may be offered in the remaining quarters. Indeed it is not improbable that a complete intensification of courses will .be adopted that the number of courses taken by the individual and the hours of the course increased. It is thought this system will lead to a more thorough understanding of the subject. Robert Wunsch, Y. M. C. A. Sec retary, has returned to the Hill after a business trip to Atlanta. He re ports seeing the Carolina Marino unit, now stationed at Georgia Tech. The men in the unit are uncertain as to what time they will be dismissed from service. Dickens "Christmas Carol" Will he Read The English Faculty announces that an interpretative reading of Charles Dickens' "Christmas Carol" will be given by Professor Frederick H. Koch, Professor of Dramatic Literature, in Gerrard Hall on December 15 at 7:30 p. m. This is an innovation at the University, but the fact that the subr ject deals with Christmas times and the spirit of the Yule-tide which will soon fill our hearts assures a success for the reading. The cutting that is to be used by Professor Koch is practi cally the same that was used by Dick ens himself when he toured this coun try and gave similar readings. The manner of presentation is unique and unlike anything that has been held at the University. The stage setting will be such as to pre serve the atmosphere that pervades the story. Thruout the performance the reader will remain seated at a table upon which a solitary candle is burning. This candle together with a spotlight playing on the reader will be the only light in the house, the lights in the audience being turned off. Christmas carols sung between, the different divisions of the story by a chorus probably seated in the gal lery will form the interludes. Fourteen years ago, while he was teaching in the University of North Dakota, Professor Koch was reauested to give a reading of this Christmas story to a few invited guests. His rendition received such an enthusiastic reception that he repeated the per formance the following Christmas to the public. Since that time Profes sor Koch has given an annual read ing of the "Christmas Carol" to an ever increasing and enthusiastic au dience. It is the desire of Professor Koch to bring more vividly to the stu dents the spirit of this period of the year, to make this masterpiece of Dickens a ritual of the Christmas spirit.
