DR. KOCH WILL WRITE
MASQUE RELATING TO THE
ROANOKE IS. SETTLEMENT
Perhaps it is not generally known
that in 1920-21 an elaborate interna
tional celebration will be held thruout
the United States and Great Britain,
commemorating the many events of
English-American history. The year
1920 marks the three hundredth anni
versary of the lanling of the Pilgrim
Fathers. Around this event as a nu
cleus, the other events have been ar
ranged, in such a manner as to make
the celebration a conjoint one.
The North Carolina Legislature
lias appointed a commission to ar
range, for the celebration in 1920 of
the landing on Roanoke Island, N.
C, of the first English settlers in
America, the colonists of Sir Walter
Raleigh, conjointly with the anniver
sary of the permanent settlement of
Virginia, Magna Charta, the Revolu
tion of the British Commonwealth,
and other correlated events.
North Carolina's particular share in
this celebration will be the presenta
tion of a masque in Raleigh next
spring, the masque having been writ
ten by Professor Koch of the Univer
sity. During the past week, Professor
Koch lectured at a meeting of the
Woman's Club of Raleigh on Commu
nity Drama, by way of preparation
for the Ter-centenary celebration of
Tiext spring. Mrs. R. W. D. Connor
presented the matter of a Raleigh
commemoration and plans were made
for the presentation of Professor
The masque centers about the acti
vities of Sir Walter Raleigh and his
colonists, who were the first settlers
of the new continent. The title of
the first part of the masque is, "Ral
eigh, Shepherd of the Ocean." In this
part are presented two episodes; first,
"'The Spanish Armada, 1588," and
second, "Raleigh's Vision of the New
The subject with which part two
deals is, "The Martyrdom of Raleigh."
Three episodes are included in . this
part: "The Lure of the Orinoco, 1617,"
"Raleigh's Last Venture, 1617," and
"The Sacrifice, 1618."
It is assured that the presentation
of Professor Koch's masque will be
an elaborate affair and will accurate
ly represent North Carolina's famous
part in the settlement movement.

Men Start Training
Regular varsity basketball practice
began Tuesday night when about 30
men reported. Maj. Boye, who made
an enviable record as captain of the
West Point quint during his, stay at
the Academy, is coaching the squad.
Among the old men out are Capt.
Carmicheal, Morris, Shephard, and
Rourk. Douglass, a former star of
Trinity, is also out. Liipfert, Brown,
Fulton and Fearrington, who are now
in football training, will probably re

season closes. Manager Spruill is

"Here's to the success of the 'Tar Heel,' and
Carolina, especially on Thanksgiving. . . ."
"... I could leave Carolina, but I can't do
without that 'Tar Heel'. . . ."
"... I enjoy reading the paper very much

at Chapel Hill. ... I don't know what I would

haggardly 29 points.
Seriously, however, the game was
a 'bitter pill, but such doses are often
needed. We need our overconfidence
well cleaned out. And the game was
the best thing that could have hap

To be beaten by a team which in
its turn has been swamped the week
before by N. C. State, an eleven we
have trounced, is no easy dose. But
it happened. And let there be no mis
taking this part. The light cadet
team had the upper hand at all
stages; they played rings all around
us. They deserved to win. The only
time our boys recovered from their
semi-hypnotic trance was at the be
ginning of the second half when they
received the ball and drove straight
through the cadet line for five first
downs and a score.
The team is not to be blamed. Over
confidence perhaps played a small
part in their defeat. What is more
likely however is that the mid-season
slump which comes to many teams
struck us at this period. And it is
exceedingly fortunate that it does
come now. The first climax of the
season was reached October 23 at
Raleigh when, after weeks of strained
tension we defeated N. C. State in
a grueling contest.
The natural tendency was to relax;
the team did this.
Making no excuses for our defeat
from the splendid cadet eleven, we
are still firm in our contention that
with the Carolina team playing as it
played N. C. State, the cadets would
have bit the dust.
But we look forward now. De
feat will help our team. They are
coming out of their slump and on

STUDENT BODY HOLDS
PEP MEETING AND SNAKE
DANCE ON ATHLETIC FIELD
Are we down hearted ? H No',
was the answer as expressed by a
large majority of the student body
that gathered on the tennis courts
where a series of yells began and
sent their echo to every part of the
campus and athletic field, Monday
evening at four thirty, following up
the suggestion made by Frank Gra
ham, Monday morning in chapel.
The crowd began to gather soon
after the ringing of the four-thirty
bell, and grew in immensity with each
moment. A few minutes after the
bell had rung, "pep" and enthusiasm
was at its height. No onlooker would
ever have dreamed that that enor
mous crowd of students were cheer
ing a team that had gone down to
defeat only two days before. In that
mass meeting was exemplified the
true spirit of Carolina, a spirit that
knows no defeat, and cherishes every
When the crowd had completely
gathered the yells began, lead by Tom
Wolfe and G. D. Crawford. They were
not content to remain out of sight of
the team they were so heartily cheer
ing, and as an irresistible wave they
swept down on the athletic field, where
yells were again given for the team.
After many and long lusty yells, they
began a snake dance around the field,
which is emblamatic of victory and not
defeat. And a victory it was for them
for the spirit that prevailed knows no
defeat. The team, every member of it
knows that the student body is behind
it to a man.
When the students had yelled to
their hearts content, when they were
completely satisfied that they had ex
pressed themselves well, they dis
bursed, each as happy as if a victory
had been won.
