Before another week passes, we hope
that all Carolina track thoroughbreds
will be out on the athletic field in ab
breviated costumes with their nice little

flesh will probably fall several points on

look there will be an abundance of it.

Last year a Christian Science Monitor
could be found on the newspaper racks
of the Library any day of the week.
And this paper was widely read by the
students, for considerable space was de
voted to college news especially college
athletics. We have noted with regret
that the Christian Science Monitor has
made no appearance in the Library this
year. What's the trouble!
Four days and exams! Are you
ready? There is a limit to the thills
that can be done in that time. Every
year there are the usual number who
have put off parallel reading, laboratory
work, reserving special reports, until it
is too late. Will you be among this
nr.mber next week when you are called
t account? Don't fool yourselves into
believing that because of the two hour
periods the exam will not be represent
ative of the course. A rather late warn
ing, you may say but better late than
too late. Take inventory, see where you
are then get busy. You have the week

plentiful these days. Buckle down to

The Y. M. C... A. has inaugurated
meetings of a different type from those
of last year. Tuesday night began a
regular program of meetings to be held
every week. Due to the great desire over
the campus for meetings of a more de
votional nature, the president of the Y
is trying to fill this demand by devotion
al meetings every Tuesday night at 6:30.
These meetings are held in the cabinet
room and are intended for every student
who cares to take a part in them. It
is thought that by holding them in the
cabinet room it will be easier to get to
gether without interruption, and get in
to a more genial discussion.
These will not in any way interfere
with the lectures in Gerrard Hall on
Each morning in the secretary's room
a watch group is held. These meetings
are held at 8:00 o'clock and anyone
wishing to atend is cordially welcomed.
This meeting gives one a great impetus
for starting the day right.
CAROLINA AND A. & E.
The Tar Heel welcomes the announcer

the one-year rule which, in force at the
University for the past several years,
has succeeded in bringing the Carolina
student body solidly behind a straight
forward, honest, soprtsmanlike, athletic
The feeling on the campus has long
been that that two State institutions
should be able to engage in friendly riv
alry in athletics; and student sentiment
as expressed in the Tar Heel approves
of the wisdom as shown by the governing
bodies of the two State colleges.
The motive that has prompted this ac
tion on the part of the joint committee,
representative of the two institutions, ex
tends far beyond the mere fact of sched-v
ulmg games betwen the colleges. The
real purpose is to co-operate with the
idea of building up in North Carolina
the highest type of athletics and the
highest standard of amateur sportsman
ship. Any one can see that, if these
two" State institutions stand together for
all that is best in American athletics,
the effects will be evident in a statewide
athletic policy clean, aggressive, and
sportsmanlike that will not only com
mand the admiration of all our own
people but will set a standard for all
the other colleges of the nation. A
splendid ideal I
Tonight, Carolina will meet A. & E.
in the first athletic event between the
two colleges since 1913. This contest
will determine the State basketball
championship. Our team has gone down
to Raleigh with our highest hopes and
with the determination to win. How
ever, fate will decree the results favor
able or unfavorable for Carolina and if
unfavorable, well, such accidents will
happen, even in Raleigh. Still we are
behind the team I
The best spirit that a student body
can show is to take victory and defeat
with a grin to refrain from boasting
and "crowing" in the first place, and
to keep cheerful and cut out excuses in
the second. Such a spirit is rare, and
the student body that has it, makes an
enviable reputation for its college. No
excuses or explanations are necessary for
any of the defeats suffered this season.
We know that every man on the squad
did his best and put up a strong fight
clean, hard and all the time; and in the
main that is why a student body should
back its team to the limit and that's
why it does. The student body is right
behind the team; and while there is al
ways hope for victory, there is no reason
for the team or for the student body to
become disheartened in case of defeat.
We are confident that both Carolina
and A. &. E. will tonight display a keen,
wholesome rivalry that will be for their
good and for the good of the other col
leges in the State. Again, we commend
the athletic committees of the University
and of the A. & E. College, and we hope
that these , athletic battles will become
classic in the history of the sport and
of the State.
FACULTY AND STUDENT
One of the gravest and most serious
mistakes which a student can make dur
ing his course at college is failure to
become personally acquainted with his
instructor. ; The student who fails to
come into closer contact with the f ac
utly members of his course than that
contact which the routine of daily reci
tations affords is depriving himself of
one of the most valuable assets of a col
lege training. Not only is he doing
himself a grave injustice during his col
lege life but he is failing to grasp an
opportunity, which, had he accecpted,
would have been of inestimable value in
While the majority of instructors en
deavor to be of as much service as pos
sible in the class room, it is impossible,
by the nature of their work, for them
to convey the confidences and radiate
the inner personalities that they possess,
which individual companionship renders
How much betetr it would be if
students cultivate, at the beginning of
their college careers, the habit of con
fiding in their professors and instructors,
and thus soliciting the friendship and
confidence of men, whose companionship
and advice is sure to prove profitable.
Such a relationship between students
and faculty can be made practical if the
student will only show a willingness to
accept such friendship and meet his in
structors half way. He will find him
willing to do his share and even more,
if the student will but show a desire
for such friendship and manifest on his
part a willingness to co-operate.
In this way student and instructor not
only become beter acquainted wtih each
other, while the student is in college, but
such a relationship will nearly always
bear fruit in more ways than one after
he has left his Alma Mater and engaged
in the larger affairs of the outside
world. This is a point well worthy of
careful consideration and still is one
which is all too liable to be passed upon
lightly and carelessly neglected.
The Story of the World, as told in
the Bible covers about forty-one cen
turies. The longest period of time
treated in any one book is almost twenty
four centuries, told about in Genesis :
the shortest period is ten years, told
about in Ruth.
With the aproach of spring, a young
man's erotic fancy may be expected to
become sufficiently erratic to reach the
conclusion that, if to kiss a Miss is not
amiss, to kiss is amiss; and, if to kiss
a Miss is amiss, to miss a kiss is not

For, at least, that much has been done
from the standpoint of mass athletics.
If anyone in school hasn't hit the hard
ground beside the gym, or hasn't at
least one window of South to his credit,
it is his own fault. ' In so far as pos
sible everyone has been given his chance
in these two sports. r
The only trouble was that it was
started too late. That difficulty could
not be surmounted, however, because of
that blamed S. A. T. C, so football
slipped by, but over those who have
Soccer and volley ball have proved
failures. " We are "what we are largely
because we are where we are, ' ' and so
we are too far south for the attractive
ness of soccer to have entered 'our souls.
And a fellow isn't much interested in
volley ball when a good game of base
ball is going on right beside him. Next
year, it is rumored, we '11 get a push
ball and then watch out you weak sis
ters! Baseball is progressing, as anyone will
testify who is near enough to hear the
simultaneous crack of bats and crash of
glass. The Seniors have elected a man
ager of class baseball and the other
classes are soon to likewise. It won't
be long before we'll hear "Strike one,"
instead of "Aw, that wasn't any strike,
put 'em over, " " you 're out, ' ' instead
of "He's safe!" "No he is not;"
"Yes he is," etc.
Before the war class athletics were
plentiful but since the war began, it has
been rather hard to put clas athletics on
its feet again. However, from the first
mass athletics looked promising and now
it seems that class athletics, the logical
outcome, is going to stick, much to the
satisfaction of the student body. Mr.
Woollen, you know, told Pete he could
get $50, if necessary, to get material,
etc., and we are grateful for this finan
cial assistance. We don't want to waste
the University 's money but evidently
we mean to make good use of it when
we do have the chance.
(Yet there is some food for thought
in the following article contributed to
To the Editor of the Tar Heel:
Among other faults which teachers of
freshmen English deplore is our, almost
general, neglect of current events, while
in college, This is deplored by others,
but especially is this neglect marked in
the first years. The peculiar transition
to the new life tends to make the student
lay aside current news, centralizing on
This so-caled transition can be re
solved into several component causes, but

paper reading, however small the im
pediment, is worth while. And there is
one obstacle which might be easily re
moved. Probably every student knows, by this
time at least, that daily papers, and
periodicals, may be found in one of the
rooms in the Library. The periodicals
he may have seen lying about on the
tables, and, should he look around, a
very peculiar phenomenon! arrests his
There are newspapers on racks over
in one corner of the room. These racks
stand on stilts about waist high. But
the racks are ignored, for something else
commands attention. Below the solid
racks are seen the nether half of human
beings, writhing in the tortures of the
weary. Some can be identified as
students, some as transients, some have
dainty feet, some capable feet, but the
absence of ease of poise is general.
Why should a reader be forced to stand
whije reading? The fact is that the
average student does not care to patron
ize this sort of service, for indeed what
should it be but service?
The sum of the proposition to make
this patronage greater and more spon
taneous is to put newspapers where they
may be read from a sitting, not neces
sarily reclining, but at least a comfort

Fresh Debating Society
One of the most interesting, as well
as the most helpful organizations on the
Hill to first year men is the Freshman
Debating Club. It meets every Wednes
day night at 9:00 o'clock in the Di So
ciety hall. The club was organized
three years ago at the request of Presi
dent Graham under the able supervision
of Prof. McKie. On account of war
conditions it was suspended during last
year, but when the present term opened
Prof. MciKe again got busy and as a
result speeches of every description may
be heard by passing New West during
the late hours of Wednesday evenings.
At the regular meeting on March 5,
the question : Resolved, that the Fed
eral Government should own and operate
all telephone, telegraph, and cable lines
of the country. The negative won, with
Mr. Womble making the best speech and
Mr. Pipes deserving honorable mention.
Mr. C. J. Williams then delivered an
excellent oration on the subject of labor
After the debate the following of
ficers were elected to serve for four
weeks : President, W. B. Womble ; Vice-
President, C. J. Williams; Secretary, S

reporter, Felix A. Gnssett. IS. J. Pipes
was elected chairman of the program
committee. Upon motion of Mr. Kaiser
