Hark Ye Freshman
Hark, ye fresh, there are no
rules so kick up quite a ruction.
Assume all Sophs to be mere
phules, disdain their kind in
struction. Take a kind of roll
ing swagger as you stroll
around the place so they'll
know that good dame knowl
edge lurks behind your smiling
Kid the profs along a little,
it would cause them much ela
tion if you'd sleep a little sound- f
er during all the recitation. ,
When you see a grave old
Senior, with a countenance se
rene and perhaps a leathern
textbook full of knowledge for
his bean, approach and slap him
on the back with a lound re
sounding whack, he will be I'm
sure delighted that he for one
had not been slighted by one so
rarely gifted as yourself.
Fail not to wave a flippant
mitt, if you want to make a hit,
with all the pretty co-eds on the
Hill. They will like the novel
way that you greet them day
by day and you'll be a mild
sensation by yourself.
WHAT DO YOU THINK,
This editorial is written concern
ing te actions of certain students in
Gerrard Hall Tuesday night at the
performance given by the Overseas
Ladies. ; What is said here is ad
dressed to the student body as a
whole and to a very few men in parti
cular. We do not mince words in
what we are going to say the only
way to state our viewpoint and the
viewpoint of the student body is to
say it and say it plainly.
The fact that a' certain small por
tion of the student audience did not
confine their applause to and clapp
ing, but, unable to restrain their ef
fervescent spirits, gave a few auxil
iary whistles and shoe thumps, does
not bespeak a serious affront, because
the applause of these men . was sin
cere and well-meant. Of course, it is
regrettable that the gentlemen did not
learn some rule of self -restrain in
this respect a few years ago in prep,
school, but we will pardon their
slight departure from polite etiquette
as something left over from their
sweet, boyish days. .
Here is what really happened: Dur
ing the course of the program, some
half dozen choice spirits went around
to the window of the performers'
dressing room and broke out a piece
of the glass, pushing inside at the
same time sticks and rubbish. A
mirror on the window sill was knock
ed off and broken. The material dam
age done was not great. But because
of the action of these few men, a stig
ma was put on the character of the
great student body of a great uni
versity a university located in the
heart of the South, erstwhile famed
fir the quality of its customs of chiv
alry and courtesy.
Student body, do you think we are
stating this too strongly? Will you
brand us as being strait-laced Puri
tans; as "making a mountain of a
mole hill?" Will you, student body?
Or will our attitude be your atti
tude? Will you rather . accept this
opinion as an expression of your own ?
Will you, by your attitude, show that
this is an expression of your own
sentiment, that you will refuse to
countenance anything that may stig
matize the name of the University
to which we all owe a duty through
our duty with it.
Our editorial is an attack, yes an
attack not so much on what has
been done as on that which' it stands
for. This makes our statement po
tential, for any act of rowdyism or
discourtesy to our visitors, is in bit
ing opposition to the spirit that per
meates this campus, the spirit that
stands for all that is best in our uni
versity life, the spirit that makes us
gentlemen and university men. '
Student body, do you echo this sen
timent? You do, or our opinion in
you and in human nature gets a sad
jolt! And that is not to be.
WILL YOU BACK UP YOUR
We have on our desk this week a
letter from the Lehn and Fink Co.,
manufacturers of Pebeco Tooth Paste.
This letter is not addressed to us, but
to some cautious individual who has
carefully marked out his (or her)
name. Written in the margin is the
following: "Handle With Care." The
person who has sent this letter has
typewritten the following in his
margin: "Would explain this letter
w.th saying that it came as a reply
to an inquiry about the cost of Pebe
co tooth paste after having paid
's Drug store 60c a tube for
it here. Can you use in an editorial
on the general proposition of "High
way Robbery in Chapel Hill."
The business letter enclosed then
tells us that a "retail price of fifty
cents a tube for Pebeco Tooth Paste
allows a very fair margin of profit."
The letter adds, however, that
'there are many distributors who buy
Pebeco from their district jobbers in
very small quantities. In doing so
they do not obtain- the most advan
tageous price." This, together with
high overhead expense, would justify
the extra charge.
This, however, is not yet the point.
The mailer of this letter, who has so
carefully marked out his (or her)
name, is evidently desirous that the
Tar Heel editor execute in an edito
rial dealers charging presumably high
prices in Chapel Hill. The mailer of
our letter thereby neatly shifts the
burden of proof and of responsibility
to the Tar Heel editor's shoulders.
The Tar Heel editor is not at all
averse to accepting the responsibility
but he reserves the right to use his
own judgment in all cases. The let
ter and its nameless sender are but
indicative of our proposition. The
Student Forum column is open every
week for the free expression of opin
ion to any member of the University
community provided these, state
ments are signed. No man or woman
is desirous of expressing an opinion
should, hide behind an alias . or a
nameless ending. It bespeaks a lack
of sportsmanship, of fair play, of a
willingness to enter a good, fair scrap.
Portions of the letter were quoted
in these columns merely by way of
illustration. The editor makes no
comment on the contents.
Of course you have , heard about
the Campus Cabinet. It's composi
tion, aims, etc., were stated in last
week's Tar Heel. This week we want
to tell you about one phase of its
work, and ask you to co-operate in
making it successful.
The Cabinet has organized the men
in every dormitory and in houses out
in town, where there has been enough
roomers to justify it. They have had
the men from each building to elect
a man whose duty it is to look out for
the living conditions in that building.
This man is to see that the janitor
service is satisfactory, that the lights
are kept in good shape, that the rooms
are well furnished, and anything else
that can in any way improve the liv
ing conditions, or add to the joy and
happiness of the students.
These men were elected to serve
you. Their positions are by no means
spectacular, but if you need anyW
thing in your room that you should
have, let the man on your floor know
about it. He will do his best to see
th:t you' are satisfied if such is
It is thought that this plan would
be very much better than having the
men go to the office one by one for
every little thing that they need.
These men can be very effective in
their work if you give them your co
operation. Will you do your part?
Do you know what class spirit is?
It is more than merely boosting your
class, or even going out on the field
and rooting when your classmates
make good plays. Ask yourself what
makes those fellows go out on the
field and work day after day. Ask
yourself what keeps you from going
out there with them. They are fight
ing to gain a reputation for their
class, just as those men 6n the varsity
are fighting for Carolina. What are
you doing to help those fellows?
This year class athletics has had
more outside encouragement than
ever before. Why not take advantage
of this opportunity to make class ath
letics a big thing at Carolina?
Boost it in every way. Go out for
some team. Make your friend, who
sits in his room all the afternoon and
whiles awav his time, ero out for
something. Make your class a win
Class athletics are going good now.
The tennis courts are filled with lov
ers of this very fascinating and in
vigorating sport. Although there
are many engaged in the game, there
are many other who are unable to
play as a result of a lack of an ample
number? of courts to afford accmmo
dation for all desiring to engage in
the sport. The tennis season is near
ly over, but we hope that when the
season reopens next spring that we
can boast of several additional courts.
A strong body is prerequisite to a fine
brain. Tennis is one of the finest
forms of developing a strong body,
and several courts are necessary to
give every man a fair deal. Eight
courts are very inadequate to comply
with the student body of Carolina
whih numbers over thirteen hundred.
Remember when you meet your op
ponent on the class field to use the
same Carolina sportsmanship as if
you were fighting the game -with an
opposing college. A true Carolina
man will play the part of a gentle
man wherever he happens to be.
It is just as essential to play the
game fair and square in a class as in
a varsity game. Some day the men
who are now playing class ball will
be playing on the varsity teams. Then
they will play the same kind of a
game as they play now.
See to it that your team uses clean
sportsmanship, and demand the same
from your opponent.
The Magazine of the University of
North Carolina is still a very live
publication on the campus. It wel
comes with the greatest interest the
coming of a new publication, the Tar
Baby, but at the same time we feel
that the students will not become too
enraptured with the Baby to forget
one of the oldest publications here.
The Magazine has been in existence
for many years, and has grown in
popularity with the passing of the
years. It fills a place on this cam
pus that is touched by no other pub
lication. Its chief object and great
est desire is to stimulate interest in
literary production, and to provide a
medium for the expression of any
thing of a literary nature.
The first issue of The Magazine will
make its initial appearance about the
middle of November. In it will be
found the literary expression of the
campus. Many criticisms will be
forth coming, and it is open to any
criticism that may be offered, for The
Magazine will thrive on criticisms.
It will be a well recognized fact that
the contributions to the first issue of
The Magazine were made by a com
paratively few members of the stu
dent body. This is one condition that
the editor-in-chief of The Magazine
wishes to have remedied. This fact
can be remedied in only one way, and
that is for more men and women to
write something. Write all the jokes
you can think of for the Tar Baby,
and then when you have finished,
when your lighter mood has had its
sway, let your mind wander into the
lands that that of Shakespeare wan
dered in, or tango with the stars in
their etherial abode, from which many i
inspirations of many worthy poets
have been derived.
Te material for the next issue of
The Magazine must be in by mid
night of November the 20th. This
issue is to be called the Holiday Num
ber, and will contain articles of a na
ture in harmony with its name. A
$5.00 prize is being offered by The ,
Magazine board for the best Christ- ;
mas story submitted for this publi- j
cation. Any one in college is eligi
ble for this prize. Play fair with
yourself and with your publications,
and write something imniedaitely.
Dr. D. D. Carroll, dean of the
School of Commerce, has returned
from Gastonia where he addressed the
State Council of Federation of Wom
en's Clubs last Wednesday night, Oc
tober 29. The subject of his address
was the Problem of Americanization
in North Carolina.
The German Club will give an in
formal dance tonight in the gymnas
ium complimentary to the V. M. I.
team which plays Carolina that day.
Meyer-Davi3 will furnish the music.

Cross Country Runners
Fast Working Into Trim
A good many men are already out
are coming out every day. The first
group of runners starts from in
front of the gymnasium at 5 o'clock,
the second group following at 5:15.
The 5:15 section is for the men who
are exercising in the gymnasium, or
who are in Captain Brown's athletic
Captain Brown emphasizes the
point that there are many men on the
campus who are not taking enough
exercise, and that cross country run
ning offers them a highly beneficial
as well as a pleasant recreation. He
is very anxious to see the running
groups greatly increased, and he feels
that if the fellows will come out and
try it for a day or two that they wi";l
like the idea and stick.
It is planned to pick class teams,
elect captains and arrange for relay
laces between the classes. The Soph
omore , class, in fact, has already
elected Mr. Bullock as captain and
has started . the organization of its
team. The other classes will probably
organize during the coming week.
It is hoped that the men will turn
out in even still larger numbers, and
Captain Brown urges all men who
can npt be out by five o'clock, to come
out for the five fifteen group.
Meets will be arranged later on and
a great . deal of keen competition is
The basketball courts are being
opened up and repaired, in readiness
for class basketball practice, which
will probably start next week. It is
planned to have enough courts to "go
around" and it is hoped that a very
large number of men will come out
for this sport.
Class teams will of course be or
ganized, but in addition to these there
will be dormitory teams, and perhaps,
for the men who room off the cam
pus, house or street teams. In fact,
almost any five men in the University
may get together, form a team and
play other competing teams.
Since basketball has come to be one
of the most popular sports a great
deal of interest is expected to be
aroused in the intra-University meets.
The exact plans and schedules will
be announced soon. In the mean
while, however, the men may organ
ize teams and prepare to begin play
ing as soon as the courts are opened
and definite announcement made.
School of Pharmacy Is
Recipient of Valuable Gift
The library of the School of Phar
macy haa recently been very greatly
enhanced in value thru a valuable
gift of bound and unbound pharma
ceutical journals, about a hundred or
more in number given it by Mr. E.
V. Quoelier, of Tarboro, who for the
past twenty years has been President
of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical
Board of Examiners.
This is the largest single gift that
the Pharmacy Library has ever re
ceived and the journals and pam
phlets composing this gift will be of
great value to the school.

erson, Mrs. T. J. Wilson, and Mrs. M.

State Woman's Club held at Gaston
