MAGAZINE DEBT WILL
NOT BE Pi BY THE
DI AND PHI SOCIETIES
Dual Committee Meeting Decides
That Two Societies Are Not
Liable for Debts.
SEAMAN WANTS $2,000.00
The two committees appointed week
before last by the Phi and Di societies
to render a report as to the best action
to be taken in regard to a two thousand
dollar indebtness on last years Carolina
Magazine has finally rendered a decis
ion after a dual meeting of the two
committees last Friday evening. The
essence of their decision is as follows:
"That inasmuch as the two societies
were only nominally connected with
the Carolina Magazine, except in the
capacity of a subscription agency, after
having elected its business manager,
and whereas the business manager was
the recipient of any and all profits de
rived from the publication, that the
societies could neither afford to be guar
antors, nor be held liable for any in
debtness incurred by the business manager."
The members of the Phi committee
are C. L. Moore, W. T. Shaw, and V.
V. Young; of the Di, Tyre Taylor, J. P.
Trotter, and M. W. Nash.
The decision which these two com
mittees have reached must be voted on
by both societies, however, before it
goes into effect, but general opinion in
the two organizations seems to comply
with the decision rendered by the dual
committee. ... .
The committees were appointed as
the result of a letter addressed to the
two societies by the Seaman Printery
of Durham, calling attention to the
debt and requesting prompt settlement
P. A. Reavis, Jr., under whose man
agement the principal part of the $2,000
debt was incurred, takes the same stand
in regard to the matter as the members
-of the committees. - Although a minor
at the time the contract was signed, he
has expressed determination of stand
ing by it and says that he will pay the
debt if the printing company will give
The Magazine has been published
under the auspices of the two societies
since its foundation in 1884. Even with
; the subsidy of a dollar subscription for
; each society member, the financial end
of the publication has never been on a
sound basis. Practically every business
manager has lost money on it, and there
is a strong feeling in the societies that

JUNIOR DEBATERS CHOSEN.
The preliminaries for the
junior commencement debate
were held Thursday night in
the Dialectic and Philanthropic
Society halls. V, V. Young
and George Hampton were
chosen to represent the Phi
with J. J. Beal as alternate. J.
M. Brown and G. W. McCoy
won out in the Di with J. P.
Trotter as alternate.
The query for the debate is
"Resolved, That there should

Real talent and hard work were re
sponsible for the success of the soinmun
ity chorus recital given in Gerard Hall
'Wednesday evening. A good sized
group of students and Chapel Hill peo
ple filled the hall and received with a
decided show of appreciation the two
short but enjoyable numbers sung by
a chorus of 35 students and towns-people.
Both songs drew the applause of
; the entire hall .and it would be hard to
tell which was the most enjoyed.
The two who took solo parts were
Alber Cullen Hewitt and Miss Aline
Hughes. Hewitt is a young ' ' Caruso ' '
of the class of '25 whose clear tenor
voice has a tone of unusual sweetness
Miss (Hughes' soprano is always a
delight, and she was at her best while
singing "The Highwayman." This
song is the -story of a pretty young
girl who gave her life in an attempt
to save her highwayman lover from
the red-coats. In itself it has a pecu
liar touching appeal which was greatly
enhanced by the singing of Miss Hughes
and Mr. Hewitt.

Manager L. J. Phipps.
The special feature of the University
annual this year is the section called
"Views," which portrays Bcenes near

man, from the chapel, to the gym, the
dorms and general campus scenes. These

founder of the University, upon the
front, the 1922 Yackety Yack, copy
righted by W. E. Matthews, editor and
L. J. Phipps and I. D. Thorpe, business
managers, contains 359 pages of a sys
tematic review of campus life and pro
blems for the past year, flavored with
thought and fun.
Although it is not the largest annual
ever published, yet the editors consider
it even' better by virtue of that fact,
since it omits many of the monotonous
details of a college annual such as sev
eral pages of faculty members, etc. It
also contains less pages of advertise
ments than last years 'b annual, another
point in its favor. The only sin of
omission seems to be the humorous re
view of the Tar Heel and Magazine,
which was an enjoyable feature of
former annuals. Another "innovation
which breaks the yearly routine is the
sandwiching of various branches of
athletics between the classej nnd offi

SHIRLEY WILL NOT PLAY
WITH P1FESI0NAL CLUB
. Leaving the Hill last Wednesday and
returning the following Tuesday, the
Freshman baseball team made a very
successful trip, taking on games with
Fishburn, Woodberry Forest, Augusta
and the Freshmen of the University of
The first game on the schedule was
with Oak Ridge, but after three innings
of consistent playing by both teams,
the game was called on account of rain.
The Oak Ridge team had a one run lead
on the first year men with Ferebee and
Starling as batteries for the Freshmen.
From Oak Ridge the boys went to
Waynesboro, Va., where they met the
Fishburne team. It was evident from
the first that this was a hard fighting
crew, and at the end of the third inn
ing Finch, who had lost his control, but
had allowed only two hits, retired from
the mound in favor of Jackson, who
held the "preps" to only three hits
during the remainder of the game. The
final score was 10-5 in favor of the
Freshmen, who touched the Fishburne
twirler for fourteen hits, John Mc
Cauley getting a home-run, and Jones
and Starling 3 hits each.
Leaving Wanesboro the Freshmen
went to Orange where ' they played
Woodberry Forest. With Coltrane and
Starling as batteries, the team, of '25
ran the score up to 7-2 in the 5th. inn
ing. At this point Coltrane, who was
going fine surrendered the mound to
Billy Coxe, who yeilded only 3 hits
during the remainder of the game and
led the Freshmen ,to a victory of 9-4.
The Freshmen got 15 hits while Wood
berry was able to get only 7. The big
feature of the game was the hitting of
Jones, Starling and Gibson.
The next game scheduled was with
Virginia's Freshmen, but on account of
rain this game was delayed until Tues
day. After spending Saturday in
Lynchburg, the team left Sunday for
Ft. Defiance where they locked horns j
i The sophomores held their annual
blowout last Friday night at nine
o'clock in Swain Hall, featured by the
selection of the Booloo Club, a fast
; boxing match, many speeches, eats and
the installation of new officers.
I The first course was grape fruit. Fol
lowing this Coach Bob Fetzer gave a
abort address on mass atheletics, stress
ing especially class athletics as a basis
for varsity teams, Next came pink
lemonade and sandwiches, which made
such a hit that the Booloo Club was
passed as submitted without changing
a single name, though there were many
who had friends on whom they wished
tp bestow this greatest honor which the
sophs have the power of confering.
As soon as some degree of order was
restored, Dr. II. D. Meyer spoke enter
tainingly and helpfully.. A fast boxing
match was staged in which Bill Smith
won over G. F. Styfert on points. When
the decision had been announced,. Pre
sident Ambler called for any business
and Jim Bradley made a motion to
appoint a committee to put through a
project of the campus cabinet to estab
lish social rooms in the dormitories.
This motion was passed and Ragsdale,
Purser and Hartsell were placed on
the committee, with Bradley as chair
man, to look after this matter.
After all business was finished Presi
dent Ambler turned the meeting over to
president-elect Coley who outlined
briefly his plan for the coming year.

pitched a splendid game for the Fresh
men and had the lead on Augusta until
the 8th inning, and in the 9th the score
was tied, 6-6. In the last half of the
9th it was thought that an extra inn
ing would have to be played and Fere

The first man up flied to the left field
but the ball was muffed by Gibson.
This error, coupled with a bad throw
from second to first and a single netted
the winning run for Augusta. The final
score was 6-7, Augusta getting 8 hits
and the Freshmen 13. The big feature
of the game was a spectacular catch
made by John MeCaulay.

The regular main meeting of
the incorporators of the Caro

Prof. Frederick H. Koch's of
fice in the Library, Monday,
May 29, at 7:30.
The student branch of the American1
Institute of Electrical Engineers gave
an attractive informal dance in the
co-ed room of Pcabody building, Friday
night. This is an annual affair and
served as a finishing to the years work.
The hall was decorated in the A. I.
E. E. colors of blue and gray. Due to
the ingenuity of some of the E. E.
students the hall lights were arranged
so as to give an irridescent effect which
added successfully to the moonlight
shadowing of a spotlight.
About twenty-four couples and a num
ber of stags attended. Tho dance was
chaperoned by Professors Lear and
Daggett with their wives. The Com
mittee in charge was composed of Chair
man D. A. Wells and two representa
tives from each of the E. E. classes.
Music was furnished by the Carolina
Troubadours and was pronounced good
by everyone. Practically all the dance
was full of life until the lust strains of
"Home Sweet Home" called the mer
rymakers away at 1:00 a. m. sharp.
The young ladies attending were
Misses Russell ,Brogden, Penick, Ven
ablo, Henderson, Andrews, Birch,
Koontz,. Woodrow, Mclver, Greenlnw,
