Vol No. XXX.
Chapel Hill, N. C, February 14, 1922.
6ASKETEERS LEAVE ON
NORTHERN THIP FACING
V..M. I. I First Game Team to Go
to Atlanta For Southern
W. & L. HAS GREAT TEAM
The Carolina basketball quint will
leave here Thursday night on the
northern trip, and faces a long, hard
grind, before returning to the Hill.
V. M. I., Washington and Lee, Uni
versity of Virginia, and the Army
will be played on the tour, after
which the team will go direct to At
lanta for the southern tournament.
The Elon victory Saturday night
made the seventh consecutive inter
collegiate victory for the Tar Heels,
the team having defeated every team
pja'yed in the state. Going at this
rate, every indication is that Fetzer's
aggregation will acquit themselves
well on the northern trip and in the
State championship honors seem
practically cinched, though of course
it cannot be called a certainty until
the Trinity game on March 6 in
Durham, which closes the season.
Trinity still says that she has a
chance for the championship, and
Carolina will have to win this final
game from her in order to have a
perfectly clear title to the rag.
On the northern trip the first game
to be played will be with V. M. I.
in Lexington on Friday. Last year
V. M. I. had just about the best bas
ketball team in the south, and de
feated the crack team that repre
sented Carolina by a 15 point margin.
Little has been heard from the cadets
this season, though it is known that
several of the men that formed their
wonderful team last year is back,
and Carolina will have a big fight on
The following day Washington and
Lee will be played. This will be one
of the hardest games of the entire
trip, and Carolina faces a tough job
in an effort to win from this quint.
Washington aad Lee has the strong
est team in years, and word comes
that it is after the southern cham
pionship, and that the students there
believe that the team will have lit-1
le trouble in copping it.
The first of the Virginia series will
be played Monday, while Tuesday the
team will leave for New York, where
they will play the Army on Wednes
day. Directly after this game the
Carolina team will leave the metro
polis for Atlanta to enter the south
ern tournament. The results of this
tournament will be watched with con
siderable interest. Local followers
are of the opinion that the Tar Heel
quint will figure prominently and
will be far from the first one to be
; Fetzer has not yet decided the
men that he will take on the trip
besides the regular first team of the
two Carmichaels, McDonald, Perry,
and Green. Probably eight players
will go, accompanied by Coach Fet

NORTH CAROLINA CLUB
TO PUBLISH YEAR BOOK
The North Carolina Club year
book for 1920-21 has now gone
through the final stages of edit
ing and will go to press in a
few days. This year book will
be one of the most elaborate
and comprehensive productions
the club has ever undertaken.
It will contain well-prepared dis
sertations on various phases of
city life and problems, all of
which are based on thorough re
"North Carolina, Undistrial
and Urban," will be the title of
the year book, and, as the name
implies, it is devoted entirely
to the studies of conditio and
problems of all phases of. city
life and management. It will
be a grand compilation of facts
pertaining to existing problems
and their remedy and solution.
But it is far from being a dry
collection of facts and figures,
for these are used only as a
working basis for the presenta
tion of solutions to problems
and new methods of conducting
city affairs and governmental
administration. The scope of
the book includes everything
from facts concerning the city
ward drift to an explanation
of the best methods of munici
pal accounting and the advant
ages of these.
Any one desiring a copy of
this year book can secure it by
notifying Prof. S. H. Hobbs, Jr.,
secretary and treasurer of the
North Carolina Club.

. Preliminaries for the inter-class
meet will be held in the gymnasium
on Friday night, February 17, and
advance dope indicates that compe
tition will be keen. This will be the
first indoor inter-class meet on record
in the University.
The events in the inter-class meet
will be: 25 yd. dash, 25 yd hurdles,
standing broad jump, and running
high jump. According to announce
ments made by Coach Bob Fetzer all

nesday. Work on the outdoor wooden track
began Saturday, and will probably
be ready for use tomorrow. The
track is located directly in front of
Memorial hall, and is a 12 lap one.
It will provide an ideal place to prac
tice for the indoor state meet which
is to come off on March 10th.
"N. C. State has 'already officially
entered the State indoor meet," Fet
zer said on his return from Raleieh.
and "Wake Foresails verbally agreed

Dr. Samuel P. Capen, secretary of
the American Council on Education,
and a leading authority on educa
tional research, who returned with
President Chase from an automobile
trip in Florida as guests of President
A. A. Murphy of Florida University,
addressed the faculty Friday night
on "Current Tendencies fn Higher
Dr. Capen stated that during the
past decade the organization of the
certificate system, entrance require
ments, unit system, and curriculum
in American colleges has tended, to
favor the mediocre student while the
individual has been overworked. How
ever, since the war as a result of
intelligence tests and other causes,
there has been a movement to allow
the exceptional student to progress
as rapidly as possible without being
retarded by regulations governing the
Dr. Capen also brought out the
fact that there is a tendency now to
provide a braader scope of courses
for the entering student, in order
that he may select the profession best
suited to him. ; A system to this ef
fect being organized at Columbia was
cited by Dr. Capen.
After the lecture, the first faculty
smoker of the year was held at Presi
dent Chase's mansion which was

The author's reading of new folk
plays was held in Peabody auditorium
Thursday evenine and three new plays
were selected for the winter quar
ter production. These plays are to
be presented at the, Play House on
Friday and Saturday evening, March
10 and 11.
The new plays are "The Lord's
Will," by Paul Green, "Dogwood
Bushes," by Wilbur Stout, and
"Blackbeard," by Paul Green written
in collaboration with Elizabeth Lay.
"Agatha," by Jane Toy was selected
as an alternate to be used in case it
was found to be difficult to produce
Seven nlavs were read. Those not
selected were "Snuf Enough," a com-
edv bv Ellen Lay: "The Junction,"
a serious play, by Charlie Parker,
and "The Feud," a mountain tragedy
by Hubert Heffner.
"The Lord's Will" is a tragedy of
a man and his family who have gone
to the extreme in religious beliels
to the neglect of material things.
"Dosrwood Bushes" is a brilliant lit
tle comedy written in the same vein
as "Dixon's Kitchen" and is equally
as good. "Blackbeard" is a play that
the Playmakers have been wanting
for three years and is concerned with
the end of the life of the famous
pirate of long ago who made terror
for all the Atlantic coast of America.
It is a melodrama and is going to
be verv hard to produce, but the
.directors feel now that it can be done.
'Aeatha" is a comedy with the scene
laid in Hillsboro and is about an ar
istocratic old Southern father who
wishes to change the names of his
three daughters to those of the lead
ing Confederate generals.
Tryouts for the parts have been
held but the casts have not been se
lected in their final form yet. This
will be done soon, however, and the

Assembly's chief executives, the Hall
was thrown open for nominations
for that office.
Messrs. W. T. Shaw, W. J. Bare
foot, L. J. Phipps and Dan Byrd
were nominated for this office. Mr.
Shaw was the final victor from the
group, leading Mr. Barefoot, his
nearest opponent by ten votes. Mr.
Shaw has been a member of the As

He has taken a real interest in the
work of the Assembly, and is expect

Under Mr. Reavis' motion for an
early adjournment, the Assembly was
open for adjournment after the elec
tion of the speaker. Mr. Reavis ob
jected during the first of the meeting
to the reading of the minutes of the
last meeting, stating that he did not
include them in his motion. Then
a warm cross play developed between
Mr. Reavis and the Speaker, the lat
ter holding that in his statement of
the motion for a vote, he included
the minutes, and thus they were vot
ed by the Assembly to be read. The
Speaker admitted his misinterpreta
tion of Mr. Reavis' motion, when he
interposed an objection to their read
ing. After a period of tilting, with
most of the Assembly in the dark,

The purpose of the club is to es

erally considered as Northern states.
The 15 members comprising about
one-half of the Northern students
here, represented seven states, New
Jersey having the greatest number.
The officers elected to serve for
the balance of the year are: C. B.
Colton, Boston, Mass., president; O.
W. Freeman, West Orange, N. J.,
vice president; G. H. Jarvis, Boston,
Mass., secretary, and "Steve" Brody,
New Haven, Conn., treasurer. Par
son Moss, who wso instrumental in
formine the club, and Garland Por
ter, president of the students, were
unanimously elected into honorary
membership. Profesor M. N. Paull
and Garland Porter gave interesting
talks, and discussed the possibilities
of the club. Gooch's coffee and sand
wiches added the necessary touch to a
fairly productive evening for The
Tar Heel Yanks, and after singing
Dixie to the tune of Yankee Doodle,
the meeting was adjourned.
Brilliant offensive and defensive
work, a dash and aggressiveness that
was so characteristic of the famous
basketball five of 1921, and a remark
able display of perfect floor-work and
I team play; enabled the Carolina quin
tet to win its seventh inter-collegiate
contest in Bynum Gymnasium Satur
day night, overwhelming the fast Elon
five by the score of 59-24. Elon sent
down over two hundred supporters
on a special train to witness her first
defeat in six games.
STRIKES HER STRIDE.
The Carolina quint struck its stride
in the Elon contest, and played a
brand of basketball that has seldom
been equalled on the local court. Elon
started things rolling with such a vim
that the Tar Heels were forced to
put out the goods, and up against a
scrapping team like the visitors had,
the very best that the Carolina quint
possessed was forthcoming. Elon
was hopelessly outclassed after the
first few minutes of the struggle, but
the game fight that the five display
ed, playing the far superior Carolina
quint, made the contest the most ex
citing played here this season, and
furnished the crowded gymnasium
with thrill after thrill.
The game was abounding in fea
tures, both teams at times making
sensational plays. For Carolina every
man on the quintet was easily a star,
the Carmichael brothers and Perry
figuring most prominently on the of
fense, while Green and McDonald
continuously broke up play after play
for the visitors, and were a real bul
wark on the defense. "Billy" Car
michael ran wild toward the middle
of the game, and appeared to shoot
almost at will and as fast as his team
mates could feed them to him. He
caged a total of nine baskets dur
ing the course of the game, many of
which were tossed from long and dif

New Organization of Faculty and
Students of Episcopal Church
Holds Interesting Meeting.
The first meeting of the recently
organized Parish House Club of the
Episcopal church was held last Sat
urday night. The club is an organi
zation of the faculty and students of
the church, being one of the first of
its kind on the Hill. Its object is two
fold: first to increase the social re
lations between the members of the
church, both faculty and students, and'
second, to interest its members in the:
problems of the church and the com
munity, so as to make both a vital
factor of the University life, rather
than conditions to be accepted with
out comment and left without im
provement. The officers of the club
were elected as follows: Dr. W. S.
Bernard, president; T. J. Wilson 111,
vice president, and R. L. Thompson,
The meeting was featured by the
singing of Miss Aline Hughes, ac
companied on the piano by Miss Lina
Pruden, and also a delightful supper
was served before the business for
the evening was taken up. Dr. Ber
nard acted as chairman and set forth
the tentative plans for the work of
the club. The club is to meet at least
once each quarter, and any special
meeting may be called by the officers.
Its work in the mean time is to be
done mostly through committees
which were appointed, as follows:
Committee on Parish House activities,
A. H. Patterson, G. M. Braune, T.
H. Shepard, and C. E. Miller; on mis
sion work, J. S. Holmes and H. D.
Duls; on conference, W. M. Dey and
the officers of the club; on publicity,.
