The period from January to March
is for the most part void of any
athletic events or activity. The
weather is hostile to regular outdoor
exercise and the result is two months
of absolute ennui no games no
training of any kind.
Why is it that the game of basket
ball has never been introduced into
the University ? In the short time
that it has been a claimant in the
athletic world it has made wonderful
progress and has become a leader
among the sports at some of our
chief colleges and institutions.
An attempt is being made to ar
range a baskeaball schedule, games to
be played during January, February
and March. Several men have shown
themselves proficient at the game but
we need more and a lot of hard prac
tice if we are to have a varsity team
up to the standard of .our other rep
(a) The game is played with a ball
something like a football on a court
not exceeding 3,500 square feet. At
each end of the court there is a bas

A training table for the Princeton
basketball team has been started for

EXTENDS ITS WORK OUT
INTO STATE ACTIVITIES
The Bureau' of Extension, in a
new leaflet prepared by Captain
Thomas J. Browne and sent to the
schools and centers of playground
and community activities in the
state, announces the beginning of a
new department concerned with phy
sical culture. This department
offers aid and advice on problems
connected with the teaching of
hygiene, mass athletics, the conduct
of physical training, and the like to
any school or person; and provides
definite help in the construction and
equipment of gymnasiums and the
laying out of athletic fields and
Professor Browne points out that
enough men to form four regiments
of 3,000 men each were lost to the
government from the state of North
Carolina alone during the last war
on account of some kind of physical
disability. "Three thousand five hun
dred of these men were not accepted
because of tuberculosis,' nervous dis
orders, diseases of the heart, blood
vessels and digestive system most
of which could have been prevented
by proper hygenic living. One
thousand two hundred were rejected
because of defective development.
Proper feeding and regular vigorous
exercise would have prevented such
After pointing out the defects of
school children, Professor Browne
proposes training in civic and per
sonal hygiene, medical inspection of
school children and remedying of
defects so discovered, and a system
of vigorous physical training to
remedy the situation. He says that
pennies spent to prevent these dis
orders and defects would save dollars
that would have to be spent later in

team fought hard, but misdirected its
energies and were unable to cope with
the skillful dribbling, which they en
countered. In their excitement and
zeal the Carolina team played too

Conducted by Dr. Greenlaw
In preparation for the smeinar
sourse on medieval drama to be giv
en by Dr. Manly next week, Dr.
Greenlaw is holding some prelimin
ary meetings of the group. The sub
ject of pre-Shakespearean drama is
being reviewed so as to get the full
benefit of the lecjtitros. The subt
jects which Dr. Manly will speak on
are "Neglected forms of medieval
Drama," "Miracle Plays in England,"
"Creed Plays and Paternoster Plays",
and "the Shapeing of English Trage
dy." Each of these lectures will be
held in the seminar room of the li
brary from four to six in the after
noon. All persons taking the course
will be relieved from work in all other
English courses. There will be no
regular examination at the end but
it is expected that some may wish
to study with an Honors in English
thesis in view. Besides conducting
the seminar it is probable that Dr.
Manly will give a general lecture to
all who may be interested.
Sophs in Second Game
Monday night the Junior and Soph
class teams met on the gym court to
play their second game together.
Both classes have strong teams, the
Sophs leading, having beaten the Ju
niors in their first game. The Sophs,
however, were not running true to
form, letting the Juniors ru away
with a score of 28 to 8. This gives
the Juniors the lead in the class se
ries. There yet remain eleven games
to be played before the final victor is
determined. The remaining games
are as follows:
Tuesday, February 10 Seniors vs.

The library has just received
twenty-four volumes of "The Ameri
cana," the newest ' encyclopedia off
the press. This is not the complete
set, , the remaining volumes are not
yet ready for distribution.
This encyclopedia is not so exten
sive as the "Encyclopedia Britan
nica," but is designed to fit the needs
of the ordinary student more so
than the Britannica. It is newer
than the "New International Ency
clopedia" which has the best for
general use before the appearance
of the Americana."
"The Americana" was formerly
published by the Scientific American
Company but this edition is pub
lished by a different company. . Be
cause of this fact it has more of
a scientific nature than the ordinary
encyclopedia, and contains a number
of scientific plates.
One of the most interesting fea
tures to us is the fact that it con
tains articles by the University
faculty. Drs. Greenlaw and Hanford
each have a number of articles in
The articles in "The Americana"
are signed articles; that is, they are
signed by their, authors. This adds
to the expense of the encyclopedia,
but at the same time it is much more
valuable to the student.
