OVER TWO HUNDRED HIGH
SCHOOLS ENTER CONTEST
Annual State-wide Debate Arouses
Much Interest Extension Ma
terial to Appear Soon.
From present indications the annual
state-wide high school debating con
tests will be very successful. The query
has already been announced and over
200 high schools have been enrolled in
the contest. The query as announced
is: "Resolved That the Railroad La
bor Board should be given power to
enforce its decisions." The handbooks
that are issued by the Extension De
partment on the subject will be out in
a few days and will be sent out to the
high schools as material for the sub
ject. It is not known just what will be
done about a new cup. One thing is
certain, however; that is, that the cup
was won for "keeps" last year by
the Durham High school. The commit
tee will give out its decisions about the
new cup, however, as soon as possible.
The Aycock cup was given by the inter
collegiate debaters but it is not yet
known who will have the honor of giv
ing the new cup.

State coal inquiry commission. Presi
dent Harding created the commission
last fall for the purpose of gathering
'and studying the facts of the coal in

Dr. Zimmerman has for some time

FETZER AND SHEPARD
TALK OF BASKETBALL
The finer points of the game of bas
ketball were explained to the class of
.'20 in chapel Wednesday morning by
Coaches Bob Fetzer and Norman Shep
ard. Coach Fetzer impressed the fact upon
the audience that basketball served to
draw the student body in closer con
tact with each other than any other
sport, thus resulting in greater school
spirit. He attributed this to tho fact
tli.-it. the game of basketball is played
within a close radius of the spectators,
where it is possible to see every play
closely nt hand and to witness fine
points in tho game which it is Impossi
ble to distinguish in other forms of
athletic amusements where the partici
pants are further removed from tho
spectators. The coach appealed to all
freshmen to support basketball by at
least attending the games, and thus en
joying the fellowship and closo contact
the sport holds in store for its support
ers. Mr. Shcpard laid especial emphasis
on tho new rules which have been in
troduced within recent years to curb
the roughness of basketball. He point
ed out to the students that the Univer
sity has a long tradition of the great
est sportsmanship as a part of its his
tory, and that this tradition must be
uphold throughout the future. Basket
ball lie believod, serves as a medium
through which this spirit of sportsman
"liip may be strengthened and moro
firmly intrenched in the University. As
n example of this, ho related to the
freshmen tho wonderful reputation for
sportsmanship which Carolina bnsket
I'all teams in the past have hud.

S. H. Hobbs, Jr., assistant professor
of Rural Economics and Sociology, is
this quarter giving the first course in
Co-operation in Agriculture ever given
in the South. In fact, the University
has practically the only department of
Rural Sociology in the South. The de

on that subject in the entire United
The South has two of the greatest
co operative agencies iu the world, but
has few men who know how to manage
them. There is an urgent need for
men who understand the principles of
such organizations, the success or fail
ure of which is so important to the
farmer and the South. Nevertheless,
no southern school has previously offer
ed courses for the training of such men.

ALA POSH CART IS
SWAIN'S NEW SYSTEM
All Food Placed on Table at Beginning
of the Meal First Come,
The management announces a change
in the mode of serving meals at Swain
Hall. Instead of having a waiter to
every two tables as in tho past, trucks
will bo used, and. at dinner and sup
per all the food that is to be served
will be on the table when tho doors are
opened, with the exception of bread
and butter. Therefore, no dishes will
be refilled during the meal, and tho food
on tho table is supposed to be enough
to satisfy the appetites of ten normal
men, But, if some of the men have
super-natural apetites and take more
than their proportionate share, they
will cause their unfortunate brethren
to go hungry. So tho management asks
that every man have a heart and take
no moro than his allotted share; and
they emphatically declare that the
amount of food-will not be cut down,
so that no one need worry.
This change is made in order to make
tho lot of those members of the Royal
Order of llash-Slingers who are so for
tunate as to have boon awarded posi
tions in the hall easier, and to improve
tho service. It is hoped that this now
plan will prove more satisfactory to
all parties concerned.

DURHAM COUNTY CLUB
FAILS TO SETTLE THE
MED SCHOOL ISSUE
The Durham County Club failed to
arrive at a definite decision iu regard
to the location of the proposed new
medical school in Durham, at its meet
ing last Monday night. The medical
school proposal came in for finite a
lengthy discussion at the meeting, the
matter finally being deferred until the
next meeting of the club.
One definite step taken by the club
resulted in the appointment of a com
mittee, composed of J. M. Saunders, C.
K. Massey, and W. J. Faucette, which
was instructed to make arrangements
for the staging of an essay writing eon
test among the schools of Durham
county. This contest will be held un
der the auspices of the Durham county
club, the subject to be selected being
one which is expected to interest the
state-at-large. It is hoped by club
members to have the winning essay pub
lished in the Carolina Magazine.
Victor V. Young, president of the
club, was selected as its representative
to make a speech before the juniors and
seniors of the Durham high school at
an early date. The talk will be deliv
ered with tho purpose in view of inter
esting high school students in the ad
vantages the University offers those
who desire a higher education.
Refreshments consisting of apples,
oranges and fig cakes were served.
William A. Blount, captain-elect of
the Carolina 1923 football team, has
accepted a responsible position with
the Liggett-Myers Tobacco company of
Durham and will not return next fall
to pilot tho Carolina eleven. His resig
nation was tendered to the football
squad about 10 days ago.
Blount first entered the University in
1915, but it was not until his senior
year, 1919, that he became a member
of tho football team. The next year
found him teaching at Bingham, but
in the fall of 1921 he entered the law
school and has been one of the most
valuable men on the team the last two
seasons. And in each of his three years
as amember of the Tar Heel eleven he
was prominently mentioned as all-South
His resignation leaves a wide gap
in tho center of the Carolina line which
will be hard to plug. This year he has
distinguished himself as an exception
ally capable kicker. On several oc
casions his goals from placement repre
sented the margin of victory for his
team, and he also made good about 90
per cent of his attempts to add the
extra point after touchdown.
At a meeting of the letter men in
football Wednesday night, Roy ("Ca
sey") Morris of Gastonia was selected
to succeed Blount as leader of the 1923
eleven. Morris is . the first Carolina
athlete to be honored with two captain
cies in many years, and that alone is a
great tribute to his popularity, ability
and leadership. "Casey" has been
catcher on the varsity baseball team
for two years and will be captain of
the nine this spring. His playing at
left end has won him a position on prac
tically every All-South Atlantic selec
tion two years in succession. While
the loss of Bill " " Blount was a seri
ous blow to next year's prospects in
the gridiron game, there is consolation
in the fact that a capable man has
been elected to fill the veteran center's
shoes as pilot of the Fetzer eleven.

BITTERLY FOUGHT GAME
Durham Makes Only 7 Points in
First Half Carmichael Sure
The wedding of Mr. Thomas Thumb
and Miss Colin Midget was solemnized
in the auditorium of the Chapel Hill
High school last Tuesday night nt 9
In the presence of the immediate
family and a few friends the impressive
ceremony was said. The bride entered
on the arm of her father who gave her
Miss Midget, played by Cell a Dur
ham, is the pretty daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Midget of this city. Mr.
Thomas Thumb, played by Pilman Per
ry, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Thumb,
Senior, is a prominent and popular
young man, also of this city.
All of the actors, none of whom will
reach their teens in tho near future,
acted their parts well, and by their
mis-steps, intentional and unintention
al, kept the audience in a continuous
state of laughter.
T!.e play as a whole was an excellent
ntiiv upon the Chapel Hill married
and courting population. The services
were conducted by the Reverend Mr.
Patton of the local Methodist church,
pastor of the bride.
Towards the end, after the knot had
been tied, the play -began to drag and
a few of the actors and actresses began
to nod and show that their bed time
was before 9 0 'clock.
The groom was very absent-minded
and seemingly bored. He placed the
ring upon the bride's thumb and al
lowed it to go at that. The bride con
descendingly laid her bouquet down and
corrected her newlv-made husband's er
ror. Following this the bride continu
ally entangled herself in her train and
kept the bridesmaid busy in assisting
her out of the embarrassing dilemma.
The ring-bearer also chanced to espy
her mother in tho audience and caused
no little mirth over her own glee.
Well deserved refreshments were serv
ed nt the end of the ccremonv and
were enjoyed by all excepting the best
man, who turned down ico cream in his
dreams of sleep. He was finally induc
ed to partake by the ever-helpful brides
The play was given under the direc
tion of J. A. Rose, of Kansas City, and
a Washington representative, for the
benefit of the Community Club. A good
sized audience turned out for the per
formance, but there were few Univer
sity students in spite of Mr. Paulsen's
active advertising. Music was fur
nished by the high school orchestra tin
ier the direction of Mr. Sheldon.
After tic wedding Mr. and Mrs.
Thumb left 011 their honevmoon for
n extended tour through sliinibcilainl

Carolina completely outpassed, out
dribbled, and outsliot the veteran Dur
ham Y. M. C. A. team on tho local floor
Tuesday night, and finally triumphed
50 to 21. Urged on by the continual
rooting of tho spectators, both teams
fought fast and furious throughout the
game, but it was apparent from the
start that tho Blue and White five was
superior. In the second half, the game
was marred by tho habitual protests of
the visitors, and Referee Stoiner had
to remove two playors from the floor
for a slight conflict.
Captain McDonald's team started off
with a spurt and ran up a large lead
in tho first 10 minutes. "Sammy"
McDonald dropped tho ball in the bas
ket five times during tho first half and
Mahler rang up throo. Two fiold goals
wore all that the Durham team could
secure in tho first period, but tho Caro
lina defense was not so effective after
the intermission. The seoro at tho end
of tho half was 29 to 7.
Knight and Perry made six baskets
between them early in the second half
and play had boon resumed five min
utes before the Tar Heels could locate
the hoop. Green came back strong in
this period and obtained four goals,
two being from difficult positions. Sev
eral times there was intentional rough
ness on both sides which prevented tho
smooth passing exhibited iu the first
Captain "Monk" McDonald played
a strong defensive gamo nnd time and
again dribbled tho length of tho floor,
enabling his team-mates to shoot. Car
michael made eight of nine tries from
tho 15-foot line count, and performed
in his usual graceful and effective man
ner. Sam McDonald and Green dis
played good form on their shots and
Mahler was exceptionally strong on de
fense. "Sis" Perry and Knight were
tho loading scorers for Durham, while
Starling made an exceedingly long goal.
