CLASS FOOTBALL MOVING
AT FAST GAIT; NO CLASS
TEAM NOW IN THE LEAD
Beginning Wednesday, October 29,
with a game between the Juniors and
Seniors which resulted in a 0 to 0
tie, the Inter-class football series for
1919 is now in full swing. The teams
seem to be pretty evenly matched
and it is expected that a most inter
esting series will be the result. The
Freshmen and Sophomores met Fri
day the 31st and fought to a scoreless
tie, and there is much conjecture as
to whether or not the bloody second
year men will finally assert their su
premacy over their meek and inno
The games are being conducted unr
der the management of the athletic
committee of the Campus Cabinet.
The series will end on Friday preced
ing the Virginia game and the win
ning team will be declare inter-class
champion. The following teams com
pose the "Class League": Seniors,
Juniors, Sophomores,' Freshmen, and
Professional Schools. The latter will
probably embrace several teams.

about 450 members of the unsophis

dents in : the ; Pharmacy School this
year is 53, an increase of , 33 over
the registration of last year. There
are 36 first year meds, as contrasted
with 22 : last year. The number of
second year med. students is 26, two
less than last year, but this decrease
is due to the small number of men
which entered in 1918. Most remark
able is the increase in the number of
medical co-eds this year. In fact, the
number has trebled within the short
space of a few months. Last year
there was one; this year three co-eds.
There are now 104 registered in the
School of Law, 58 more thn last year.
The number of graduate students and
co-eds has also increased.
On the whole, the registration only
betokens an ever greater Carolina.
In fact, , had material conditions on
the Hill been different , this year, it
is assured that the registration would
have been somewhat greater than it

THE ABRAHAM SITUATION

time, Genesis, XI:31 and Genesis

time in Ur of the Chaldees and later
moved from that place" to Canaan.
Have you made the trip from Ur of
the Chaldees to Canan ? If you
haven't you just haven't treated your
Ur of the Chaldees and Canaan pre
sent us with two types of civilization.
Let us look at that. Civilization is
the offspring of religion. It takes its
rise and pursues its way from the vis
ion men have of God. Chaldea had
its vision of God, its religion. Abra
ham had his. When then ? Abra
ham packed his trunk and got his
schooner wagon ready and trekked
for better pasturage.
In Chaldea they said, "God is an
enlarged individual, living in splendid
isolation by Himself. Man is down
here by himself. God is supreme and
man is his puppet." The Chaldean
built an institution around that view
in order to make it work. In other
words, he organized it, just as we get
an idea we want to Dut across and
form an organization with president
and secretary and standing commit
tee. Keep your eye on the idea Chal--
aea naa: uoa is everything, man is
nothing, and man is God's subject to
be treated as God wills. So they met
one day and resolved. The result was
a cast iron organization, a close cor
poration, run by a king or priest, or
senator or university facultv. or trust
magna teor, bank president, or social
leader, or parent, or what not. The
object) of the organization was to
whip people into line, to make them
walk so. Civilization became what
the king, or priest, or senator, or fa
culty, or bank president, or social
leader, or parent dictated. It was
clear cut and easy. It was the sac
rificial system the system in which
the individual had no life of his own
and nothing to do but stay put.
cut Abraham couldn t stay puit.
He said: "God isn't an isolated indi
vidual. He's the living God, ;a God
m our daily life and affairs. He's
alive in human lives. What then ?
Human beings, by reason of the God
lite within, them, by reason of their
pedigree, have in them the ahilitv t.n
achieve, to work out destiny. They
are sen active agents and can be
trusted to do their own civilizing.
The institution, the ore-anizatinn. ia
the device men are obliged to create
not to whip people into line but to
grow them and, like the fulcrum, to
increase their power to achieve.
ihe Chaldean had cone so far in
dictating policies that at last he had
actually compelled the individual tn
offer his child on the altar of sacri
fice, as a sign and seal of his obedience.
Abraham came to Canaan where he
started the new, democratic movement
that centered in a man instead of an
organization. He wasn't vet freed
from slavery to the sacrificial system
ana so we nnd him (Genesis XXII),
going up the hill country one day to
offer his son. But he was thinking it
out and there on Mount Moriah he
had his clear vision of God as the liv
ing God, who wants not sacrifice but
a dedicated life; and instead of slay
ing his son he left him free to live
the God life and grow and achieve.
When a faculty acts as policeman
and the student has no voice in the
discipline that's Chaldea. When
student self government is installed
that's the faculty having trekked to
Canan. It's the difference between
the sacrificial system and freedom.
When a religoius organization tells
its members what to believe and what
to do and when that's Chaldea.
That's Abraham offering Isaac. When

a religious organization teaches its
members to practice God and grow,
letteing their belief and conduct be
come God directed, that the trip to
Canaan. That's Abraham handing
his son his self activity.
When you own your friends and at
tempt to bind them to what you want
them to do that's Chaldea in the re
gion of friendship. When you "come
to the place where you give your
friends their liberty, trusting them
and loving them even though they
stray from your ways like lost sheep
that's Canan. That's the Abraham
programme of friendship. That's our
Lord and Master, reinstating his
friends who even went back on him.
When you want to study what you
like, and, as you say, browse around
instead of getting down to business

place and value of the organization?

Red Cross Drive In
Full Swing; Most
Successfull One Yet
According to Dr. Bullitt, who is in
charge of the Red Cross drive in
Chapel Hill, the subscription of this
community for this year will exceed
all previous ones. The canvass in the
village and on the campus is being
carried on an it will be the first of
next week before a full report can be
made on the result of the drive for
the roll call. Indications point to a
most successful drive, and Chapel
Hill hopes to be a 100 per cent town.
The drive on the campus has pro
gressed well as is evidenced by the
large number of buttons on coat la
pels and the Red Cross in so many
windows. All the fraternities, Carr
and Smith Buildings, are 100 per cent.
A large sum was collected by the co
eds during the intermission at the
concert Tuesday night. When a final,
definite report is made, Carolina ex
pects to be perfect.
McDonald of Charlotte
Heads Freshmen Team
The freshman football team has
elected as captain, A. Morris Mc
Donald, Jr., of Charlotte. McDonald
has had experience on the Charlotte
high school and Fishburne, and is a
cool, heady quarterback and an in
dividual player of promise.
The sixty first-year candidates who
have been working for four weeks un
der Coach Bond have developed into
a smart, fast team that should cause
a lot of trouble for their opponents.
After A. E. they take on the Da
vidson scrubs, Bingham School, and
the University of Virginia first-year
men. Weekly scrimmages with the
varsity have given the youngsters
plenty of hard work and recently they
have shown great dash and skill in
their attack, as evidenced by the re
sult of the A. & E. game on Saturday.
The crowd that was jammed into
Chemistry Hall Friday night was just
as large as seating and standing space
permitted. The fellows were noisily
enthusiastic and gave vent to their
feelings by frequent yells for every
body from "Billy" Noble down.
