The de feat of Davidson eliminated all other college quints, except A. & E. The .State College is claiming the cham pionship also, it is understood. Before a large crowd of specta tors, the Tar Heel quint overwhelmed their Presbyterian rivals by the score of 40 to 12. The goal . shooting and passing of the Carolina team was too much for the Davidson boys, altho they fought p;amely. Carolina played rings around Davidson all the way thru and in the last half substituted the scrubs. Davidson showed lack of passing and was weak on shots from the floor. Cuthbertson for Carolina, and Chalmers, both Char lotte boys, starred for their respec tive teams. Following was the line-up of the two teams: Carolina Davidson Carmichael Harrington R. F. Lynch ;. Davenport L. F. Liipfert McAskill C. Morris ; Chalmers R. G. Cuthbertson Schenck L. G.

Rehearsals of all the plays has been going on steadily for the past two weeks so that the school audito rium has been in almost constant use every afternoon and night. In the basement room below the scene paint ing department has been working steadily on a canvas setting, a log cabin for use in the folk plays. Stage construction under Professor Rankin's direction has been going forward at the same time and the movable panel setting is now in place on the stage and the columns which finish the sides of the stage have been erected in po sition. Special reflectors for the foot lights have been constructed by Pro fessor Lear with arrangements for manufacturing stage thunder and lightning and color effects for the plays. The school house is the scene of real community play making in which every branch is being worked out by "home talent."

' (Continued on Page 4) Dr. Raper Lectures on The Community Service "Community Service" was the topic of a talk given by Dr. Raper in Ger rard Hall on Wednesday night. Business men and farmers, as well as wage earners enter into their un dertaking for the profits accruing therefrom, affirmed Dr. Raper. The young man who enters into one of the professions does so with the con viction of selling his professional ser vices for more than they cost him. But there is another type of labor wherein the laborer has a more lofty purpose in view than the adding to his own wealth; the uplift and de velopment of his community are the things he strives most to attain. In this may be placed the preacher and the teacher who dedicate their lives to the service of the people around them. Their reward is to witness the development of a noble character, the shaping of which has been intrusted to their care. Professional nurses do not make the profits derived from business of professional efforts; their lives are given over to the task of helping others to regain their lost health. "A new profession was suggested by Dr. Jackson that of the community secretary," declared Dr. Raper. "The college is rendering a signal com munity service when it sends out a doctor, a lawyer, or a teacher who is imbued with the spirit of placing as great value upon the community ser vice as upon his income. These, by entering with enthusiasm into the life of their community and by showing themselves keenly ! interested in the public welfare, can become communi ty secretaries." The University will be performing a great good if it stimulates in its students that spirit of consideration of the good of society before their own advancement and gains, was Dr. Raper's opinion. The task for the teacher is to present to his student a clearer outlook as to his duty, (Continued on Page 3) IMPRESSIVE SERVICES COMMEMORATE LATE DEAN OF UNIVERSITY FACULTY AND ALUMNI SPEAK ERS SPEAK IN EULOGY OF DEAN STACY REFUSED PRESIDENCY OF ANOTHER COLLEGE Dr. Venable, A. M. Cbates, and Sen ator Thompson were the Speakers Commemorative services in honor of the late Dean Marvin H. Stacv were held in Gerrard Hall on Sunday after noon, March 2. Dr. Chase presided and the Rev. Mr. McWhorter pro nounced the invocation and benedic tion. A quartette consisting of Pro fessor and Mrs. Harrer, Mrs. Hanford, ana Mr. woolen rendered an appro priate selection. ; The first speaker introduced was Dr. Venable as representative of the faculty. "Marvin Hendrix Stacy was the se cond of our young leaders to be snatched away in the space of a few months, cut oft in the flower of his manhood and in the hour of sorest need," began Dr. Venable. "Not by the number of years but by the fruit age of those years is the me of a man measured. Thru his loyalty, ser vice, and achievements did Dean Stacy prove his worth as a citizen of this State. The high reward that fell to my lot as a teacher was to witness the gradual development, the unfold ing of the character of Marvin Stacy. He was ever a man to hearken to the voice of duty. When the presidency of another college was offered to him he refused the flattering offer because he thought that a greater field for service was opened to him here." The course that Dean Stacy's life work took was prescribed by truth, honor and duty, was the view of the speaker. He was a man of few words, but his speech was to the point and carried weight. As a speak er of national repute, Professor Stacy bore messages of hope and encourage ment thruout the States. By his impartiality, sympathy, and sincere desire to guide the students in their difficulties, Mr. Stacy, as dean, won the esteem and confidence of the student body. In his capacity as exe cutive he showed a broadness of vis ion and a clear insight into the needs of the University. Albert Coates presented Dean Stacy as the student knew him in his daily contact with campus life. To be with, to know the students in the class room and on the campus was sought by Dean Stacy, according to Coates. His sense of justice and strict impartiali ty gained for him the respect and devotion of the men on the campus. Many have been the fellows who'have entered the dean's office, heavy of heart and almost in despair, only to reappear with smiling faces and light hearts, inspired with courage and hope through contact with this friend. Through his own strict observance of the rules which he prescribed to guide the course of others, Dean Stacy had the ability of causing those whom he was advising to feel that his sympathy was wholly with them. "He went out in his life to those (Continued on Page 3) Baseball Warriors Commence Training ' Table Activities Much enthusiasm is being manifest ed in the daily practices of the var sity nine. Every afternoon a large crowd of fans fill the grand-stand in order to witness the progress and working out of the Carolina baseball machines of war under the general ship of Coach Lourcey and Captain Jack Powell. With the coming of spring, the old time pep which helps the teams of the University to march on to victory is getting into the bones of the ardent followers of the na tional game. .-, . . . . During the past week, the regular daily practices have taken more ad vanced forms. Each afternoon that the weather has permitted, a regular game between two selected nines has been staged. These practice games have brought out the weaknesses and strong points of the individual play ers. Thus Coach Lourcey is discover ing each man's weak point, and is working on a policy of developing each player so that he may rid him self of these faults. The showing made by the battery has been espe cially pleasing. Both the pitching and catching staff are displaying fine form. Jack Powell and Joyner, mem (Continued on Page 3) Carolina Quint Ends Season with Big End of Percentage Column The Carolina quint have returned from the short southern trip during which they wound up the season in splendid forirt. This season has been a most remarkable one from several viewpoints, and the student body may well look upon he entire season as a most successful one. The first call for men was answered with great promise. At that time Only two of last year's 'squad were on the Hill, Captain Cuthbertson and forward Lynch, and -to these two great credit is due. Rarely ever does any team undertake a season without the guiding and steadying hand of a coach, but Upon recommendation Of former Coach Peacock it was de cided this year to keep up the sys tem he introduced rather than import a new) coach with his new methods. Much credit is also due to Dr. Law soh, who has been most valuable in getting and keeping the team in shape . Thus a team was rounded into form with these two old men as a nucleus, with men from last year's scrubs, and from the new material tfiresh from "prep" &n high schools throughout the State. The first game with the Durham quint was disastrous from the Carolina standpoint, but soon "Billy" Carmichael returned, having just received his discharge. The team took a new lease on life and defeated both Elon and Guilford. Again the strong Durham team journ eyed over and went back with Caro lina's "nannie," but this game was much closer than the first one, show ing that the Carolina aggregation was fast rounding into a perfect machine. With the return of Liipfert, crack center of last year's quint, Carolina now had four letter men on the squad with Morris, of last year's scrubs, as the fifth man. The ancient foe, Wake Forest, out for State champion ship honors, ,was met and! defeated. This concluded the series on the home floor with a standing of three victories and two defeats in Caro lina's favor. The quint next departed for the an nual march thru Virginia, stopping ov er in Greensboro long enough to ad minister defeat to the Guilford quint for the second time. The next night the ancient nval was met on their home floor, and Carolina suffered de feat, 40 to 28. Captain Cuthbertson suffered a sprained ankle in the first half of the Virginia game, which had a demoralizing effect on the whole team. The next night the strong W. & L. team was met and defeated, and the next night V. M. I., recognized as the strongest quint in Virginia, went (Continued on rage 4) Prof. Koch Reads from Shakespearean Comedy Before a crowded house and atten tive audience on Last Friday night, February 28, Prof. Koch, assisted by Mrs. P. H. Winston at the piano, in terestingly read Shakespeare's fa mous comedy Midsummer-Night's Dream. Throughout the reading he contrasted the comedy and love story in the play by reading scenes from such parts. Especially good were his nortrals of the amateur actors, and of Puck, the mischief maker of the comedy. The myth of the story ne brought out clearly by reading scenes relative to the part that the fairies played in the play, and how they came in vast, unseen numbers to attend the wedding of the hero. The interest which the different scenes created was greatly enhanced by fitting music, gracefully played by Mrs. Winston. The intense interest and frequent ap nlause displayed by the audience dem onstrated the success of the entertain ment. On oDeniner the exercises Prof. J. H. Hanford stated that it was the plan of the English department to give enter tainments like this thruout the coming scholasic year. 4 DR.

HAMLIN GARLAND SCORES HIGH IN INITIAL ADDRESSTO STUDENTS NOTED AUTHOR AND LECTUR ER THRILLS HIS AUDIENCE HE IS A NOTED MAN OF LETTERS And he is Very Probably the Best Known Interpreter of Western Life Hamlin Garland, one of America's most famous novisists and short story writers, historian and lecturer, loud ly and forcibly scored the modern stage drama and movie show in a lecture here Thursday night that literally thrilled and gripped a full audience , of students, faculty and townspeople. He characterized the major portion of the present day lit erature as base and degrading and the melodies as being out of charac ter with the lofty sentiment and dig nity of the folk songs and ballads of older times. Arrangements for the address were made by the faculty lecture committee. Drs. Archibald Henderson and J. M. Booker introduc ed Mr. Garland. He spoke again to the students in chapel Friday morning and to Eng lish composition classes. It was the first time he has addressed a South ern State University. The author de lighted the attentive audience with some selections from his own writ ings, including "The Prairie Chick en," "Drifting Crane," and a story from "Main Traveled Roads," the latter being the first story he wrote. The drama has become commercial ized to the extent that the present day stage and screen dramas play for the most part to the lower and baser instincts of the public, he de clared, in Urging the future Univer sity journalists to exert every effort to counteract this modern tendency. He emphasized clarity, precision, - (Continued on Page 4) The Univ. Magazine Has Gone to Press The University Magazine is now on the press. The editors are making every effort to get it in the hands of the student body at a very early date; the printers state, however, that it will be ten days, or possibly two weeks, before they are able to get it on the Hill. The student body responded re markably with contributions. The articles submitted were of every type, and from every class from the . freshman up to the graduate. There were a large number of short stories, narratives, poems, sketches, etc. Truly, the magazine this year may be expected to come up to, or even excell that of last year, which was said to be one of the best ever put out. This year everyone is urged to take the Magazine. If you were not seen Wednesday night by the sub scription committee, please see any of the editors or business managers at once and hand him your name, so that it may go on the mailing list for the first issue. Manager Williamson has agreed to cut the subscription (price down to fifty cents for the spring. The object is to place a Mag azine in every room on the campus. The present price enables this to be done. Williamson will be glad to see anyone wishing a subscription at any time. He may be found in 14 Old East. He also states that all sub scribtions mailed to any address de sired will be charged at the same rate as the students. So, if you have a girl, or a friend who would like to read the University Magazine, hand the name to the business man ager.
