We do not put our faith in prophe
cies nor are we prophets. Yet we will
venture a prophecy which we believe
will come to pass. We hail tne com
ing of the new Carolina the great,
erlorious, new Carolina.
We do not believe the old Carolina
will go. May that never be! But
we see a rejuvenated school, and in
her bo.som beats forever the great,
pure heart of Carolina; and all that
was good will be better all that was
strong will be stronger the tradi
tions of the past will find new glory
in the progress of the future. And
the weaknesses and flaws of the past
If we had been a real estate dealer
we would probably sum all this up
in one terse phrase: Watch Carolina
Yes, watch her grow not only
numerically but in the vital ways. For
to us Carolina is alive, gloriously
alive, and full of potential possibilities
And is it not a privilege to be
here to take part in this change to
be a part of Carolina and lor Caro

is ours our glorious inheritance
handed down by those great fellows
of the old days handed down a
shining jewel, to bs loved and cher

May we be worthy of her!
May she ever grow and grow and

IS OUR LESSON
Soon the military discipline is to
d sappear and we shall be allowed to
go and come practically as we please.
No "Non-Com." will inspect the
rooms, and no one will be made to
"rake leaves" because he threw pa
per in the hall. The old liberty that
has been a part of Carolina ever since
there has been a Carolina is soon to
pervade the campus in all its forms.
What shall be our attitude towards
the new. or rather old, state of af
fairs ? Shall we at once drop back
into the easy going way of last year
and year before, or has the military
training taught us a lesson 01 prac
tical value ? Consider, for instance;
the places we live in while in college
our rooms shall we continue to keep
them clean and neat? A maji is judged
partly by the things he has around
him. If the walls are covered with,
pictures that are of a questionable
character, then it will be taken fo
granted that they are the kind o'
pictures -he likes, and will be taken a
an index to the man himself. And
vice versa, if a man surrounds h".mser
with pictures of a fine and enncblin;
nature, ethers will see them and re
spect the man who chooses to sur
round himself with such objects of
art and beauty. If the books and pa
pers are neatly arranged and the floor
swept clean and the furniture dusted
it gives the room a tidy and home
like appearance, and adds to the man's
own self respect.
We might as well wake up to th
fact that we are up against a new
state of affairs, and that we havr

way is gone. The tern "Slacker" doer

meaning on this campus long after
peace is declared. We have a b'g job
ahead of us. It will require every
ounce of strength and intelligence
which we possess to put it across in
the right way. If a man sleeps till

They might well occupy the serious
thought of every Carolina man.
The Chapel Hill Community Club

Following quickly on the heels of
the departing dances, will come that
inevitable culmination of the term's
work, the examination period. To
many this period is one of hopeless

professors and students, each trying
to "blind" the other, but it is merely

nroblems in this country that must
have a speedy settlement. Teh opera
tion of the railroads and the tele
graph systems must be taken froir
government control, for government
operation has proved inefficient. Thr
socialistic idea is for the government
to take over such institutions and re
duce them to mediocrity as a result.
The fundamental principle of Ameri

inward impulse, which is democracy,
Professor Myers emphasized the
fact that post-war problems must be
solved by co-operation. An adjust

and this question can only be satis

of capital and labor "Is there to ,be

Are the Germans interned in this

"Such a question must be met upon
a basis of co-operation. The inward

by peoples of all nationalities have
brought us to victory."
