FIRST GA1E TO BE PLAYED
BETWEEN THE TWO IN
FOOTBALL GAME NEXT YEAR
After more than five years of sep
aration athletic relations between Car
olina and the State A. & E. College, sus
pended since 1913, will be resumed
again, beginning with . the basketball
game in the Baleigh auditorium Satur
day night to decide the State quint cham
pionship. The faculty committees in
charge of athletics at the two State in
stitutions feel that the hatchet should be
buried between the colleges and that the
two student bodies should be able to en
gage in athletic sports in the spirit of
Henceforth it will be the purpose of
the two institutions to pull together and
co-operate with the view of improving
the quality of athletic sports and rais
ing their standard. In short Carolina
and A'. & E., in re-establishing athletic
relations, propose to make North Car
olina athletics better both from the
standpoint of winning teams produced
and the caliber of players participating
in the contests.
A football game between the two col
' leges has already been scheduled for Oc
tober 23, during fair week. It is hardly
probable that the two institutions will
meet in baseball this season," as it is so
late in the season that the schedules
have been made out and it would be dif
ficult to find a suitable time and place
for a game. '- .:
For, the next year, 1919-'20, both col
leges will play under their present rules
of eligibility. However, beginning -with
September, 1920, A. & E. will adopt the
one year rule, which has been the bone
of contention between the two institu
tions, and under wliich the University
has been developing teams for the past
several years. Thus, after this date, the
two teams will be on equal footing from
the standpoint of players participating
in the contests. -
In the latest issue of "Studies in
Philology, ' ' , published quarterly by the

Business as Profession
"H'?rts Dr. Carrol's Theme
( The.; man that goes into the eompli
dated, 'world of business of today,; needs
the same careful preparation required in
other professions and in 'addition : must
have: a 'broadness of . mind that seizes
upon opportunities they :; pass.;H, This
fact was enunciated by Dr., D. D. Car
roll in a talk Wednesday night on busi
ness as 'a profession.
Dr. Carroll .. stated tt the business
world iS' more ".complicated as the yearsi
gQ 'by.,5 As an example he cited the case
of .railroads' -rates Which have oeou a
source of irirtation f br thirty years and
whichr.. are still unsettled.; An investi
gation .of the .underlying causes of the
panic of 1907 reveals an astounding lack
of i the qualities that are . required to
make a successful business.
".Changes -in' business .methods have
come about so .rapidly that the profes
sion has become baffling. The organ-;
ization and operation of industries one;
fifty years ago were quite simple. It, is
tho idea of the' older and moreconserv-i
ativo elements that experience is . the!
best : teacher ; that schools are not thej
places in which to learn the business
principles. It is .the quack in businessj
such as those that caused the panic of
1907, who have not grasped the fund-,
amental principles. :; ,- ; .; ; r -r
A comprehensive knowledge and cer-i
tain mental qualities: go to make up a
successful I career; was Dr. Carroll 's
opinion. As a primary requirement id
a depth of-vision to sce'a future possi-j
bility and tb visualize the success of an
undertaking. Mr. aVriderlip, of thej
National City Bank, of New York,i
places this ' quality as the first of the'
roquirbments to bo met by an employe
The enterpriser neods a large amount of
courage to face the possibilities of suc
cess of failure at the outset of his ven
ture. To forge ahead ho must show
sound judgment he must have the ca
pacity to analyze and choose. Another
indispensible quality is that of faith in
himself and work faith to act upon his
own judgment. Perseverance and punc
tuality will help him to push on to suc
cess". "A comprehensive study of business
is no easy thing, " declared Dr. Carroll.
" Unbusiness-like methods were used
when we first entered the war, but it
was soon discovered that experienced
business men must be put in charge to
produce the most efficient results.

Coeds Was a Delightful
tina Enjoyable Novelty
What proved to be one of the most;
enjoyable experiments yet tried on the
Hill was the Senior "At Home" to the
entire body of co-eds in the University.
The Senior class feeling the rieed for
more social contact and a more intimate
association between the student body
and the cb-eds decided to try a Seriior-C6-ed
smoker. Professor Jackson while
her6 said : ' ' It is but natural that boys
and girls your agb should associate with
each other, and let me tel you that ybu
boys are just as much cb-eds here as the
girls are." So the Senior Hit upon
the happy idea of having all the cb-eds
instead of just those classed aa regular
Seniors, and they proved to their own
and the the' Universities ' ; satisf action
that such a thing could be made a very
The meeting quite naturally was held
in the co-ed room, Peabody 5; one 6f
the very few places' 6ri the campus that
shows the every telilng effect of a
"woman's touch." President Luther
Hodges presided. In a few well chosen
remarks! he welcomed the visiting ladies.
"The very expensive invitations"
Uncle Sam's two cent postal "and this
idea of having the entire co-ed body
are two entirely new ideas added to the
already long list of '19 's attainments."
Miss Louisa Eeid, graduate student,
responded for the co-eds. ,"I, as the
spokesman for . the girls, wish to thank
the entire student body, and especially
you, the boys of '19, who have taken
us in and made us feel perfectly at
home. The co-ed has to face much op
position before she leaves "to come to
the University for the first time, and it
is no easy prejudice to overcome."
The dignified Seniors next engaged in
a guessing contest,, the nature of which

The regular. Freshman Intra-Society
Debate was held in the Di Hall last Sat
urday night. . The debate throughout
was closely contested, as a 2 to 1 de
cision would suggest. The query de
bated was: Resolved, that the Federal
Government should control and manage
the railroads of the country as a perm
anent policy. The affirmative was pre
sented by Messrs. Staley and Kiser,
while Messrs. Hartsell and Gresette up
held the negative. The decision was
rendered in favor of the negative. '
In advocating the continuation of the
government's control and management,
Mr. Staley, of the affirmative; pointed
out the glaring defects of - the private
system; and contended that these faults
could not be remedied, but laid inherent
in the system, Mr. Hartsell, of the
negative, maintained that such a policy
would be aii unjustifiable enroatihment
upon private rights. He further pointed
out the evils that the policy .would en
tail, such as political corruption. Mr.
Kiser next contrasted the two systems,
and pointed out the benefits of the gov
ernment control and management plan
over the private system. Mr. Gresette
concluded the argument by taking the
experience of the government managed
roads during the past year as a decisive
argument against ; the continuation of
the plan. Each speaker was allowed 20
minutes, , not '-more than five , of which
could be used on rejoinder.
The members of the winning side will
receive Di Society pins as a reward for

The many basket ball fans of Chapel
Hill who take delight in witnessing a
lively scramble after the sphere and
whose delight is further increased when
a contest is free, had both of these de
sires gratified Saturday, when a select
team of Durham Boy Scouts journeyed
to Chapel Hill and defeated a team from
the local graded school on the open air
court near the gym. Interest in the
game was increased by the small size of
the players, although this did not de
tract from their ability to handle the
ball, and the many enthusiastic rooters
agreed that they had seen a good contest.

They're Fixing up
Peace o f the World
' , The Peace Conference in English 21
has .been making good progress in the
solution of several knotty problems of
the , peace settlement. The Russian
muddle, the Balkan problem, interna
tional waterways, and conflicting terri
torial claims have been carefully consid
ered during the past two weeks. The
Russian , representatives presented a com
prehensive outline of conditions in Rus
sia and proposed, recognition of the
Soviet government, under certain con
ditions. This move was also recom
mended by a joint comimttee on Russian
affairs made up of representatives from
several nations; but it was vigorously
opopsed by several countries who fear
that recognition of the Soviets will en
courage Bolshevism. After long discus
sion the matter was laid on the table

for aiding Russia by means of a com
mission possessing great financial and

Phi Fresh Hold Intra-,
Society Final Debate
One of the best and hardest fought
freshmen debates ever held in the hall
of the Philanthropic Society was staged
last Saturday night. After hearing
both sides argue their respective good
points and refute those of their, oppon
ents the judges ordered in favor of the
negative, upheld by ,Messrs. J. B. Mc-
Leod and P. Hettleman, who contended
that the government of the United States
should not adopt the policy of perm
anently controlling and operating the
railroads of the United States. '
Messrs. More and Byrd in presenting
the argument of the affirmative pointed
out the value that the public would de
rive from , government control and in
stances where government control has
proven a success.
... The negative offered as argument why
the government should not adopt such
a policy, the danger such an adoption
would lead to in regard to destroying
private initiative and bringing about
serious political evils. They offered the
plan of no government control but in
stead government supervision under the
direction of the Interstate Commerce
Commission. They further argued that
in time of war private control had borne
up under the strain as well aa govern
ment supervision. The affirmative to
refute this caleld to the attention of
the judges the fact that, in order to se
cure proper functioning in time of war;
the government was compelled to take.
operation of tho railroads out of their .
owners hands. ( 1
The judges were Doctor Hanvr,
Messrs. Lasley, arid Thornton.

there in no mean quantity, and with an
avalanche of humor gushing from all
sides of the hall, the history of the
Mecklenburg Declaration of Independ-i

for by every man present. The idea of
a pleasant time, Mecklenburg countily
speaking, was happily realized.
