TREAT FOR CHAPEL HILL
Tony Sarg is coming to Chapel
Hill with his famous Marionettes. He
is scheduled to appear with his act
ing dolls at the Play House here
on the evening of February 1st un
der the auspices of the Carolina!
Playmakers in "Rip Van Winkle."
This remarkable young American
artist has put on the stage of our
country the ancient art of the puppet
play. Many people prominent in art,
in literature and the theatre have
acknowledged his genius. "Design
ed originally merely for his own
amusement and the diversion of his
friends visiting his picturesque
Greenwich Village studio, Tony
Sarg's puppets have scored sensa
tional successes at three different
Broadway theatres," reads the pam
phlet put out by his management.
It continues: "Clayton Hamilton,
the distinguished dramatic critic,
writing in 'Vogue,' has said: 'The
puppet theatre invented and develop
ed by Tony Sarg is unique in the
annals of the world. The technical
capacity of his inspired dolls is un
surpassed, and, according to all due
predictions, unsurpassable. His pup
ept theatre has added to the joy of

Sarg's company are about two feet

so skilfully jointed and weighed that
they are capable of making virtually

In reviewing the work of the pup
pets on Broadway, Ralph Bloch had
this to say in the New York Trib
une : "Here is the oldest plaything
in the world, the acting doll, doing
all the things that living people spend
their "best energies trying to do on
the stage, and doing it so much bet
ter, so much more richly and effec
tively and with such simple economy
of expression as to throw down the
last ledge of privilege that has
fenced the human actor's sacred per
son." These wonderful little dolls, un
der the direction of the capable Tony
Sarg are able to juggle balls, ride
prancing charges, play the piano,
dance the minuet, sing songs, gay
and sad, wink their eyes in flirting,
and make love as only puppets can.

Irving's old American folk legend,
as presented by Tony Sarg's Mari

The play is in seven scenes, with
thirty or more characters. There is
a dog, a fat grunting pig, an old
sailor with hh parrot who dances.

At a meeting of the Mathematical
Club, held in Phillips Hall Tuesday,
a mathematics contest offering $7.50
In prizes was announced. Five dol

this amount Dr. Archibald Hender
son announced that he would add
$2.50. ' ;
Of the total sum, $5.00 will be of
fered as the first prize, leaving $2.50
for the second prize. The problem
which will be offered for solution in

SEELEY TOff KINS MAKES
TALK IN CHAPEL TUESDAY
Pastor of First Congregational
Church of Brocktown, Mass.,
Speaks In Chapel.
The prospect of having the two
principle streets of the University
town blocked indefinitely with the
three sections of the massive old
Central Hotel, which is being moved
to another site in order to make room
for the erection of the new Baptist
church, has been lately the cause of
quite a flurry of excitement among
the villagers. An injunction, taken
out at the instance of O'Kelly, negro
tailor and pressing club proprietor,
against S. Berman, who operates a
dry goods mart of never ceasing'
special sales, prohibiting further
work on the buildings which were
then reposing on the center of the
town's two principle thoroughfares,
was a real cause for worry, until
Berman, by depositing bond to the
amount of possible damage to O'Kel
ly, secured, a restraining order from
the supreme court, and today com
pleted the movement of the build
ings. ' i
The whole affair started when Ber
man, in cooperation with M. W.
Uzzell, attempted to repurchase the
building from O'Kelly at a hundred
dollar increase over the price for
which he had sold the rights to him
tvfb days before. Berman, purchas
ed the property at auction for $350
from the Baptist church; condition
being that the site be cleared im
mediately. A week or so later he
transferred the property to O'Kelly
for $500, agreeing at the same time
to advance an additional $500 on
the negro's note so that he might
finance the moving operations. Two
days afterward, in partnership with
Uzzell, Berman offered to buy back
the property, giving O'Kelly a $100
bonus. O'Kelly accepted, stating
that he would drop in Berman's store
in a day or two and complete the
.inancial end of tho deal. Berman
and Uzzell immediately commenced
the moving operations. ,
It was not until the three sections
of the ancient structure had been
moved just far enough to block the
two principle streets did the press
ing club magnate drop in for the
final settlement. He returned Mr.
Berman's check for $300, which had
been advanced on the note, and re
quested another for his $100 bonus.
Berman tore up the initial check,
agreed to pay the negro the one
hundred cash, and to return his notes
aggregating something like a thou
sand dollars, and to call the deal
, But O'Kelly would have none of
it.f He contended that the notes,
signed on the basis of long term
loans, should be honored, and that
he must have the cash before he con
sidered the deal completed. He ab
solutely refused to accept the pa-
pejr. Meanwhile, when Berman at
tempted to continue the operations
of i moving the structure he found
himself faced with the) injunction
drawn by the negro. Things began
to ; look rather serious for him, as
his" agreement with the Baptists
called for the removal of the build
ings at once, so he sought the ser
vices of Lawyer McLendon, who
managed to secure the restraining order.

CAMPUS CABINET WILL
HELP OUTDOOR MOVEMENT
Committee Appointed To Cooperate
With Prof. Meyer of Sociology De
partment, Utilizing Spots.
The speaker in chapel Tuesday
morning was Dr. Seeley K. Tompkins,
pastor of the First Congregational
Church of Brocktown, Mass. Un
der the auspices of the Y. M. C. A.
Dr. Thompkins is visiting a number
of southern colleges. Secretary
Comer of the local "Y." organization
expected to have him on the Hill for
a three days' series of lectures and
meetings, but due to some confusion
in the schedule he was forced to
leave Tuesday afternoon in order to
fill an appointment at the University
of South Carolina.
Dr. Tompkins was one of the first
ministers in the country to introduce
social and industrial problems into
his sermons. For the past fifteen
years he has been a deep student of
these problems. During his short
stay on the Hill he addressed com
bined classes studying sociology and
the labor problem.
In his address to the students in
chapel, Dr. Tompkins a more steady
control of the vast forces working
through the social and economic
structure of the nation. This he said
cannot be accomplished through in
tellect alone, but a deeper spiritual
control is necessary.
A committee from the Campus
Cabinet, consisting of Secretary
Comer of the "Y", W. C. Murchison,
president of the Cabinet,' and Miss
Adeline Denham, co-ed representa
tive, is co-operating with Professor
H. D. Meyer of the sociology depart
ment in an effort to improve the out
door recreational facilities of the
campus. W. E. Horner, editor of
the Magazine, is also a member of
Prof. Meyer's plan, which has re
ceived the approval of President
Chase, is to convert unused areas of
the campus into basketball and
volley-ball courts, with quoits and
horizontal bars an additional feature.
The working out of this plan, Prof.
Meyer thinks, will take care of a
great number of students who desire
a few minutes of play each after
noon but who feel that they do not
have time to go out for any of the
more formal types of athletics.
The committee is also planning to
have something done with regard to
filling up or draining the many places
on the campus, especially in the
vicinity of Swain Hall, which on
rainy days become pools and lakes
of no mean dimensions. In the
opinion of the cabinet there is no
excuse for such frog-ponds on the
summit of a hill so easily drained as
the one on which the University

1BI EDWARD CALISOH
MAKES STRONG APPEAL
Noted Jewish Speaker Talks on "A
Jew's View of Jesus" Gives
"A Jew's View of Jesus" was the
subject of an interesting talk by Dr.
Edward N. Calisch, rabbi of Temple
Beth Ahabah, Richmond, Va., at the
Presbyterian church Sunday morn
ing. The unusual spectacle of a
Jew in a Christian pulpit attracted
an audience that filled every avail
able seat in the church.
The address was presented in clear
cut, forceful style, and Dr. Calisch's
audience was visibly impressed both
by the man and his message. He
said that a better feeling between
Jews and Christians could be brought
about if Christians would stop teach
ing that the Jews rejected and killed
Jesus. The crucifixion, he said, could
only be charged to the Romans, and
the motives which inspired it were
not religious but political.
"The first followers of Jesus were
all Jews," said Dr. Calisch, "and the
Jews have never rejected the prin
ciples enunciated by Jesus to his dis
ciples. It is the foreign conception
of Christianity, brought in by the
converts of Paul and the other apos
tles, that is contradictory to the Jew
ish faith, making it imjwsible for
us to accept its teachings."
The rabbi emphasized the essen
tially religious character of the Jews.
He expressed the hope that the dog
mas which have been a barrier to
closer cooperation between Jew and
Christian will be broken down, and
a better mutual understanding re

Some attractive programs are on
the schedule of the North Carolina
Club for the rest of the year. The
club this year has tackled the big
problem of home and farm tenancy
and hopes by the end of the year to
be able to furnish the people of the
state the actual facts about every
phase of tenancy. Under the lead
ership of Dr. E. C. Branson and Prof.
S. H. Hobbs, Jr., the club has al
ready aroused much concern out in
the state over this problem.
The papers and discussions of the
meetings this year have been both
live and interesting and those for
the remainder of the year promise
to be still more so on account of
the students having a longer period
of time for study and preparation
than in the fall quarter. The papers
presented at these meetings are writ
ten only after a real research in
laboratory study has been made, and
the information presented would be
difficult to obtain from any other

Many students who hail from rural

The herd, consisting of about a

means of a simple 'biological process,
had their headquarters in the edge
of the woods below the ol'd "stiff

were thriving on the inexpensive gar

"What the State has done since
a year ago has proven a challenge to
the entire South, and State by State
they will follow in North Carolina's
leadership in the splendid interest of
future citizenship," President H. W.
Chase declared to the semi-annual
meeting of the Board of Trustees of
the University of North Carolina in
session here yesterday.
More than 1,600 students, repre
senting 97 of the 100 counties in the
State, have enrolled at the University
during the present term, and en
larged facilities now under construc
tion under the provision made by the
General Assembly during the year
will make possible the enrollment of
500 more students next year, he said,
in making his annual report, giving
in detail the progress of the work at
the University during the past year.
Yesterday's session of the Board of
Trustees was the most generally at
tended in recent years. Members
were here from far western moun
tain counties and from " the coast.
Routine business and the reading of
reports from the President and va
rious committees occupied the time
of the meeting for the most part.
Col. J. Bryan Grimes, chairman of
the Building Committee, gave a de
tailed report of construction work
during the year.
New Hotel for Chapel Hiil.
Out of the meeting will probably
grow a new and adequate hotel build
ing at the University. Impetus was
given the need when John Sprunt
Hill, a trustee and leading business
man of Durham, declared that he
would rive the Graves property, re -cently
acquired by him, and $10,000
toward the construction of the build
ing. A committee, composed of
Josephus Daniels, chairman; George
Stephens, C. G. Wright and Lindsay
Warren was named to develop the
Work on the Community Center
building, to be erected as a mem

president of the University until his
death in 1918, will likely get under
way during the coming spring. Pres
ident Chase reported that $122,000
of the $150,000 desired had been
raised by alumni of the University.
The Building Committee was asked
to take the matter in hand, and upon
the instruction of the Executive Com
mittee proceeded with the construc
tion. Memorial resolutions for the late
Governor T. W. Bickett were di
rected to be prepared, and Josephus
Daniels, Walter Murphy and Z. V.
