MARYLAND HOPES TO DEFEAT
TAR HEELS ON EMERSON FIELD
So Says Coach Byrd After Witnessing the Fair Week Game in
Raleigh Did Not Use Full Strength Against Princeton
Tomorrow's Game Promises to Be Close.
The first University sermon of the
year was delivered in Gerrard Hall
Sunday night by Dr. Henry Lewis
Smith, president of Washington and
Lee University. Dr. Smith was former
ly a North Carolinian, and is a gradu
ate of Davidson College. On the sub
ject of "Lessons From the Character
of Robert E. Lee" he made a very im
Dr. Smith showed clearly how three
great lessons could be derived from
General Lee's life: the lessons of self
sacrifice, of Christian faith, and of the
supremacy of spiritual over material
things. "General Lee," he said, "was
endowed from childhood with militar
istic ideas and ideals. His supremacy
in this field gained for him the offer of
leadership of the Union Army, which,
if he accepted, would mean glory, hon
or and power, and probably the presi
dency of the United States. If he re
fused this offer and accepted the lead
ership of the Confederate army, it
would mean defeat and ruin under the
banner of Virginia. At a great sacri
fice he chose the latter."
"After the war," Dr. Smith contin
ued, "General Lee accepted the presi
dency of Washington College, with a
low salary, and spent the remainder of
his life in building it up. Here again
he made a great sacrifice, for he had
also a government position offered him
which would have paid a large salary."
Dr. Smith then told how General Lee,
cut off Bince childhood from all Chris
tian influences, maintained and devel
oped a purity of character which was
remarkable. In this way he showed

his team has a 50-50 chance to win, judging from Carolina's showing at Raleigh.

Maryland could register only one first
down against Princeton, but that does
not indicate the strength of the team.
Coach Byrd did not allow Somler, his
epoedy halfback, to play against the

vegetation and surrounding water, many
scenes of colonists in their attire and
Indians are shown. Indian attacks,

FRESH DEBATING SOCIETY
GOES IN FOR POLITICS
The Freshman Debating Society met
Monday at 7:15 with a quorum of mem
bers present. The society decided to
postpone the program and discuss fresh
man politics. After a lively discussion
it was decided for the society to sup
port H. M. Privetto for president of the
class of '26, Elton West for vice presi

The freshman team left yesterday for
Asheville where Asheville school will
be played today and Bingham taken on
at Oates Park tomorrow. Coach Alex
ander's eleven should win both con
tests, not by one-sided scores, however,
for "Nemo" Coleman has a scrapping
team at Bingham and reports from Sul
phur Springs indicate that the fresh
men will have no easy job there.
This is the first time that a fresh
man football team from Carolina has
visited the mountain metropolis. Bing
ham has defeated tho first year men
on Emerson field two years straight,
but Asheville School has never played
. Coach Alexander will start his first
team in the Sulphur Springs game but
substitutes may be used against Cole
man's outfit. Bingham is hardly as
strong this year as in 1921, although
giving Mars Hill a sound thrashing
last week. Dalton and Kirkpatrick are
the mainstays of the Cadets' backfiold.
"Charlie" Gold, freshman fullback,
s out of the line-up with a slight in
jury, but will probably be in shape to
play next Friday. Underwood is play
ing halfback whilo Griffin has been
shifted to full.
The next game on the first year
schedule is with the South Carolina
freshmen at Columbia, Friday. The
State College freshman game at Tar
boro has been changed from November
11 to November 10 at the request of
Tarboro citizens who felt that a larger
crowd would attend on the latter date.

were gratified to find the courts in con

took advantage of the opportunity to

playing on them.
President Chase's request that the
courts should not be used for games
other than tennis is being well observ

courts will be kept in good condition.

informal meeting of the year Tuesday
evening at 7:30. The thirty members
present were well rewarded for having
attended. The program consisted of
conversing in French and the playing
of games in which only French was
spoken. Before the conclusion of the
program, refreshments, consisting of
apples and grapes, were served.
Running for office seems to be a fa
vorite outdoor sport with members of
the freshman class. A grand total of
48 candidates entered the race for po
litical honors in the nominations held
in chapel last Tuesday morning. Of
this number, 15 have presidential as
pirations, 16 will be satisfied to attain

Two men who are with the Atwood
organization here met with a very un
usual accident last Tuesday morning.
Harry Carter, chief draftsman of the
organization, and Arthur C. Nr.sh, ar
chitect, were struck by pieces of fall
ing plaster. The two men were sitting
at a desk in the Atwood offices in the
Alumni building working on plans for
a fraternity house. Just as tho 8:30
bell was ringing, about a square yard
of the ceiling fell upon them without
warning. Both men were struck on
the head by the falling plaster. Car
ter's injury was rather serious, as th
gash across his head required twelve
stitches, while the hurt sustained by
Nash only required dressing. Both men
were carried to the Infirmary.
It is thought that the accident was
due to some extent to tho fact that
students in the classroom above were

In the midst of its financial campaign, with no reports fram faculty or fra
ternities, and only incomplete reports from tho rest of the campus, the Y. M.
C. A. had Tuesday night raised about one-fourth of tho amount set as its goal.
The campaign is on, and Manager Ragsdale hopes to have the full amount sub-
ascribed before this issue of the Tar
Heel reaches its readers.
The campaign was opened by a sup
per at the Presbyterian church Mon
day night, at which President Poindex
ter served as toastmastcr. Speeches
were made, not only by Carolina men,
but by visitors from State College.
President W. C. Riddick compared
the University and the Y. M. C. A. of
his student days with those of the pres
ent, and brought greetings from the
collego at Raleigh.
Floyd, captain of the football team
and president, of the student body of
State College, was loudly applauded.
"Carolina and State College are travel
ing oposite ways in athletics," he ad
mitted, "or rather, are trying to go
the same way on a road on which there
is ordy room for one, but in other ways
we have much in common. We are go

will be a success, we are going to ask

as judged by economics. "You men,"
he told the members of the campaign
committee, "are going to offer tho stu
dents an opportunity to transmute dol
lars into intangible but priceless val
ues." "In economics, tho best way to es
timate the value of intangible factors
is to measure our loss if we were with
out them. Consider the hole that would
be left in our campus life if the Y. M.
C. A. were removed, and you will get
some conception of its value. The Y.
M. C. A. is the most economic invest- '

Delayed Issue of
Boll Weevil Coming
The next issue of the Boll Weevil will
be out by Tuesday or Wednesduy of
tho coming week, according to an
nouncement of Business Manager Bro
dy. The special Fair Week issue which
it had been promised would be out on
the day before the State game, was de
layed on account of the failure of the
engraver to get the cover plates and
other cuts finished on time.
The November issue, consisting of
36 pages, will be a college comic do
luxe, if nothing happens to it between
the editorial office and the printer.
Some of the best known and most ir
responsible of the campus fun-flingera
are contributors to its columns, and the
art department promises that its full
quota of flappers and tea-hounds will
be very much in evidence and as allur
ing as ever.
With 25 pages of reading matter, ex
clusive of advertisements, Manager
Brody asserts that the Boll Weevil has
five more pages devoted exclusively to
"copy" than any college comic in the
country. And, considering the tender
age of the young insect, it would seem
to have attained a rather marvelous
