C, NOVEMBER 15, 1919 Number 6 J TAR Carolina and Davidson Clash DANVILLE HIGHS EASY VICTIMS FOR CAR. FRESHMEN CAROLINA MEN LITERALLY WALKED AWAY WITH THE GAME TEAM PENALIZED 25 YARDS The Freshmen literally walked through the Danville High School eleven Tuesday at the rate of seventy four to nothing. And the ease with which the game was won is empha sized still more when we know that most of the last quarter was omitted because of darkness. The game was sewed up from the beginning, Shepherd twice running about fifty yards for touchdowns in the first five minutes of play. Mc Donald both times kicked goal. Two more touchdowns were scored in the quarter by Green and one by McGee. The team continued to score at will through the second quarter in which Hamby distinguished himself by in tercepting a forward pass and run ning thirty yards for a touchdown. The second half was opened with a touchdown when Fischel kicked off over the goal line and the ball was fallen on by a Carolina man. The scoring continued freely throughout the third quarter. In the early part of the fourth quar ter a sensation was created by Mc Donald who ran over the line from (Continued on page five) 300 High Schools to Take Part in the High High School Union Mj-ore than 300 high schools are ex pected to take part next spring in the high school debating union of North Carolina conducted by the Uni versity of North Carolina, announce ments for which have just been sent to all the high schools in the state. The query will be: "Resolved, that the United States should adopt a policy of further material restriction of immigration," and the final con test to decide the state championship and the winner of the Aycock mem orial cup will be held in Chapel Hill early in April, 1920. The high schools participating in the debate will be arranged in groups of three, each school having an af firmative and a negative team, and those schools winning both sides of the debate will send their teams to Chapel Hill for the final rounds and the state championship. A bulletin containing .outlines and arguments on . hoth sides of the query and references to further sources of information is being prepared by the university and will be sent to all schools. This is the eighth year of the de bating union which was started by (Continued on Page 4) Di Society Continues Debate on Covenant Saturday night the Di Society again took up matters of State in continu ing discussions on the League of Na tions. A reservation to the X article to make America's participation in foreign disputes and wars a matter of her own option was introduced by Mr. Cashatt, of Guilford. After the usual debate, during which Aeolus again turned loose his winds and the Noble Beast (Bull) was allowed full Privileges in the hall, a vote was called for, and the reservation defeat-ed- The X Article was adopted with out reservations. The Program Committee announces a regular debate for Saturday night upon the question of open and closed shops. The program for November will be composed entirely of Fresh man activities. The committee has found it necessary to do this, due to the fact that few new men are dis posed to take part in the debates as carried out according to the Assem bly plan. A general debate exclu sively for Freshmen will be the fea ture for November 29. MEMORIAL CAMPAIGN WILL BE BROUGHT TO CLOSE ON NOV. 26TH. Albert M Coates, secretary of the Graham Memorial Fund, has an nounced that the campaign for the student union will end Wednesday night, November 26, the eve of the Carolina-Virginia football game. In vitations have been sent to all the directors of the Fund asking them to attend the banquet to be given here that night as a fitting close to the campaign which started last spring. The sum to be raised is $150,000 which will be spent in erecting, a building for student activities. This building is to be erected as a fitting tribute to the memory of the late president of the University, Edward Kidder Graham, and is to be known as the Graham Memorial Building. There is a great need for such a building on the University campus. It will serve as the headquarters of many student organizations on the Hill, and the Y.M.C.A. will use part of the building to further its activi ties. The Philanthropic and Dialec tic litreary societies will make the student union their permanent quar ters. The building will also serve as a place of entertainment for visitors on the Hill. The students of the University are very enthusiastic about the Graham Memorial Building. In one night, last spring, the students pledged $20,000 as their part of the Fund. The contributions ranged from $25 to $500 and the class of 1918 averaged $75 per man. The Central Committee from the trustees consists of Governor T. W. Bickett, Victor S. Bryant, George Stephens, Leslie Weil and C. G. Wright, from the state, W. A. Erwin, Judge Peter C. Pritchard and Dr. W. S. Rankin, from the faculty, President H. W. Chase, Dr. W. M. Day, Dr. L. R. Wilson, Mr. C. T. Woolen and Mr. E. V. Howell. EXTENSION DEPARTMENT OUTLINES HIGH SCHOOL FALL FOOTBALL PLANS Final plans have been made by the Bureau of Extension for the sixth an nual state high school football cham pionship contest. According to the regulations, any team which has play ed three games and won them all, or has played as many as four games and won three-fourths of them, is eligible to enter the championship se ries. Teams throughout the State which hold such a record shall notify the University committee, of which Mr. E. R. Rankin is secretary, before November 17 of their desire to enter the contest, and shall enclose a rec ord of the games played. Members of the committee will hold a conference with representatives of all teams eligible to enter the eastern championship series at Raleigh dur ing the early part of next week, while a similar conference will be held with representatives of the western teams in Greensboro at the same time. These conferences will arrange a championship schedule, east and west, in order to select by elimination the two teams which will play in the fin al contest at Chapel Hill. The University committee pays one half of the railroad fare to Chapel Hill and return for the two teams which will play in the championship game. As interest in high school football is greater this year than ever before, it is assured that competition for a place in the final contest will be close. The date of the final game has not been fixed, since it is impossible to predict the teams which will be eligi ble for the final preliminaries, and equally impossible to determine the nature of the schedule which will be arranged. The Raleigh High School holds the championship for the years 1913-1915, while Charlotte has secured the hon ors in the last two contests of 1916 and 1917. First Year Men Meet Bingham Cadets Today The first year reserve team meets the strong Bingham cadets on Emer son Field this afternoon. From all reports the Bingham team is the strongest and most formidable eleven the Freshmen have battled against thus far this season. Their backfield is exceptionally heavy having Led better, of Chapel Hill High School fame at half. The Freshmen, after their 14-0 vic tory over A. and E. and the 74-0 score against Lynchburg High have round ed into a fast and well-tranied eleven. Coach Bond is well pleased with the showing made thus far by the team. This is the last game the Freshmen will play on Emerson Field. The final game of the season will be play ed on Lambeth Field, in Charlottes ville, November 22, against the Vir ginia first year men. BAD WEATHER HOLDS UP ALL TOURNEMENTS FOR FIRST OF WEEK CLASS TEAMS HAVE ABOUT PER FECTED ORGANIZATION The completion of the class tourna ments was held up this week by the bad weather during the early part of the week, so that not all the tourna ments were finished at the time we went to press. Good progress was made last week however, so that most of the classes had come down to the finals through the process of elimination, during the good weather that prevailed last veetc. The Seniors played off the final match last Saturday, Washburn, who was also Captain of the team last year, winning in straight sets over Gwynn, the runner-up. The second man on the team has not yet been settled. In the Junior tournament, Wilson in the upper bracket advanc ed into . the semi-finals by defeating Brown in straight sets; the other semi-finalist in the upper bracket will be the winner of the Van Nop-pen-Noble match, which has not yet been played off. . In the lower bracket Gardner advanced into the finals by winning over Hester in a hard-fought contest in which he was compelled to go into extra sets. This leaves Wilson, Van Noppen, Noble, and Gardner among' the Juniors from (Continued on page five) Plays Are Selected by Carolina Playmakers; To Be Presented Soon With the first authors' reading of plays on Wednesday night, the Caro lina Playmakers have started serious work on their first program of plays to be given on the week before ex aminations, probably December 12 and 13. Five original folk-plays were read by their authors before an interested audience of Playmakers in Peabody Auditorium. These plays were all written this year in Professor Koch's advanced playwriting course, English 34, and represented several new types of North Carolina folk-life. Miss Sparrow's, play, "Who Pays?" is a drama of the life of the mills and pre sents the tragedy of children who pay the price of the conflict between mill owners and the striking workers. "The Portrait" by Dougald MacMil lan is a play of the sea and the fisher folk, dealing with the mystery of the disappearance of Aaron Burr's daugh ter and the discovery of her portrait in the cottage of a fisherman who had taken her in after her shipwreck. Miss Lay's play, "The Hag," is a comedy of North Carolina folk-superstition, introducing an old woman suspected of being a witch and the tricks of two mischievous boys who prove that she is a hag. "The Third Night,' by Thomas Wolfe, is a drama dealing with the murder of an old mountain "witch man," the appear ance of his ghost to the leader in the crime and the mystery of his disap pearance in the end. "The Voice of (Continued on Page 3) Today at TAR HEELS DESPITE DEFEAT OF LAST WEEK AWAIT VIRGINIANS North Carolina's football machine suffered a bad attack of carburetor rheumatism last Saturday on Emer son Field and V. M. I. won 29-7. The Great God Dope left the field imme diately after the game and his bel lows of agony could be heard on the campus until 10 o'clock that night, when he died in Battle1 Park. The game was replete with thrill ing plays and first class football. The trouble was: V. M. I. held the mono poly. The fast. and powerful Carolina backfield ripped through the V. M. I. line and tore around the ends with the speed of the agile steam tractor as it leaps nimbly o'er the hillside. The battle was friendly fought throughout and the size of the score was at all times in doubt. First Mr. Leach, who attends school at V. M. I., would grab the ball and race 40 yards up the field when Carolina's unpregnable defence would stiffen and throw him for a loss. Then Mr. Leach would go around end for 15 yards only to run against the same (Continued on Page 3) PHI GENERAL ASSEMBLY DEFEATS EUGENICS BILL The spirit with which the members entered into the discussion of the last two bills before the General Assembly of the Phi Society is proof of the suc cess of the new plan. While these two bills were before the Society the discussion never lagged. Last Saturday night the bill was one advocating that every applicant for a marriage license in North Caro lina should successfully pass a phy sical examination before receiving the license. It was introduced by the Ways and Means Committee, Mr. Pittman of that committee putting it before the House arid discussing the necessity for such a measure. The advocaters of the bill met little opposition until Mr. Grant rose and threw a bomb in the argument of the affirmative, by showing that it would be detrimental to the lower classes the very class it was intended to help. A wave of opposition was then turned towards the bill, and it was hotly discussed pro and con until it was so late that the Speaker called for a vote. The results showed 21 for and 48 against. Several new bills were introduced after the debate. They will be fought out in later meetings, and will no doubt prove extremely interesting. The regular election of officers of the Society will take place next Saturn day night. PHARMACY ENROLLMENT SURPASSES FORMER RECORD OF ENROLLMENT The enrollment of the Pharmacy School is larger than ever before in its history. The School is taking care of the demand for druggists throughout the state. This is a great task for the demand is becoming greater every day and the merits of Pharmacy have been recognized. You bet Doc. E. V. Howell and Prof. Beard, who have by their energetic efforts made our Pharmacy School, and who are largely responsible for Pharmaceutical efficiency of the state, will see to it that this efficiency is strengthened as time passes. We appreciate the development of the William Simpson Pharmaceutical Society. Thirty-five new members have been initiated within the past month. Society pep is not lacking and this pep was aroused Saturday night, Nov. 8 when the society gave a smoker that made each member ap preciate his membership. The im pression made by the decoration the enjoyment of a good feed made every one feel as if he could express him self by exclaiming melaleuca leuca dendron. The Society is planing work which it hopes will be of interest and value to the future Pharmacist. Twin - town TAR HEEL DEFENDERS OF PIGSKIN SUFFER DEFEAT BY CADETS LEACH'S END RUNS TOO MUCH FOR TAR HEEL BOYS CAROLINA ON DEFENSIVE The speedy team from V. M. I. walked through Carolina last Satur day on Emerson Field to the tune of 29 to 7. Although previous scores this year pointed to a victory for the home team, the lighter and faster squad from Virginia outplayed Caro lina in every phase of the game. Marvellous interference, long end runs, and skillful forward pass ing characterized the playing of the cadets. Carolina was on the defen sive during most of the game. The surprise that V. M. I. gave the stands filled with spectators by scoring in the first few minutes of play was the beginning of many surprising runs and drives. The game began when Carolina kicked off. By straight football, V. M. I. made a touchdown. They failed to kick goal. A 63-yard run by Leach in the same quarter made the score 13 to 0. A delayed forward pass to Mason netted the Virginia team another touchdown. Carolina rallied at the beginning of te second half. Two successful for ward passes and a plunge across the goal line by Tenney caused the only score for the University. Blount kicked the gcal. Leach, for V. M. I., continued dur ing the second half, to break loose for long runs. In the last few minutes of play, Carolina came near scoring (Continued on page five) North Carolina Club Discusses Educational System of North Car. Discussing the possibility for much improvement in the educational sys tem of our state, was the theme of the Carolina Club at its regular meet ing, Monday night. Mr. H. F. Latshaw, chairman of the educational committee, introduc ed the subject by speaking on Educa tional Ideals. Mr. Latshaw main tained that democracy in education was just as important as democracy in government, and that our present system does not embody the ideals of democracy. A system of education must be secured, he declared, that will provide for education to the old as well as the young. Mr. Latshaw was followed by the members of his committee who cited various defects that existed in our educational system at the present time. The one outstanding recom mendation called for the abolishment of the unit system so that the large number of small schools could be con solidated This plan would result in the establishment of at least one good school in every county instead of many one-teacher schools as exist at the present time. This was the first time that the edu cation committee has made an official report. The committee is now get ting to work in dead earnest to pre pare its plans which will be submitt ed to the State Reconstruction Com mission. Public health will be discussed at the next meeting of the club, Monday, November 24. Sophs Defeat Juniors by Six to NothinglScore In a very hard fought game Wed nesday afternoon the Sophomores fin ally won out over the Juniors by a six to nothing score. Neither team had a considerable margin over the other and it was anybody's game un til the last whistle. The Juniors, though strong on offensive and like wise good on their defensive work in most stages of the contest, were nev er able to concert their efforts enough to score. v 1 r- ) 1 ; 1 .
