HAIL AND FAREWELL BIDDEN
TO PLAYMAKERS ON EVE OF
TWO WEEKS WESTERN TRIP

A NEW CRITIC IS ARISING
Out of Little Play Material, Play
makers Create an Excellent
Appropriating the title of a spright
ly little show now doing its time oil
Broadway, it's a "Hail and Farewell"
that we bid to our PLiymakers. Our
by no means leather-lunged acclaim is
sent up for the titillation tho Profes
sor and his guild gave us with their
tenth series of folk plays last Saturday
evening. It's "Hail" to them, for out
of what seemed rather dubious dramat
ic stuff the organization fitted together
a show, which, if not all that could be
hoped for, or up to the standard of
some of their earlier bills, was an en
joyable enough divertissement, and pos
sessed of inimitable bits of characteri
zation, which in the instance of Lizzie
Taylor's "Mrs. Zimmer," reached the
level of acting. 'or we'll wager a
Scotch-laden Mauretania against a
thiniberful of choker-chola that the new
year dawned rather bleakly on Mr.
Koch with respect to prospects for his
tenth series of plays.
And it's "Farewell" to them, for
they have played their last bill of the
student year here and leave in a few
days for a tour of the western regions.
We confidently predict for them suc
cess. "Mamma" herself will have
hard times gushing as much as she will
be gushed over by other "sweet
Mama's" out in the long-suffering land
of the long leaf pine. And Gorham's
tour de force anent that particular
type of provincial Philistinism that has
done so much to win for us our exalted
position in the figures of the Agricul
tural Department may strike responsive
chords. The Playmakers will be warm
ly received, beyond peradveuture. Even
more so, perhaps, than on their native
heath, or Hill (if you will be finicky).
Before examining the three plays
some general and sundry observations
must be made. Not that I am desirous
of playing the village George Jean Na
than, despite prediction to the contrary
by one of our estimable English men,
or of bedevilling the good people that
were too easily done to be interesting
but I am garrulous, and then, two col
umns must be filled. Bide a wee, em
bryonic Buses and Mausfiehls, your no
tices are coming.
I often find myself as much absorbed
in the audience about me ns in those
less realistic actors on the boards, and
not always through fault of the play.

Music lovers of the University and
Chapel Hill are looking forward to the
treat of the season Friday night when
Emilie Rose Knox will give a violin con
cert in Memorial Hall. Miss Knox has
been here before and has always won
the applauses of her audiences. She has
become a Carolina tradition and it is
expected that a large crowd will hear her
this year. The conceit will begin prompt
ly at eight thirty.
Miss Knox has just completed a suc
cessful concert with Colin O'More, the
young tenor, in the North and has won
the praises of all who have heard her.
The New York Herald, Boston Globe
and other of the country's leading pa
pers have lauded her ability as a concert
artist and, she is now being heralded as
the successor of the famous Maude Pow
ell. Lowell, Mass., liked her so well that
she gave two return concerts there only
Last week Miss Knox, whose home is
in Raleigh, gave a home coming concert
in the Capitol City and received an ova
tion second to none ever tendered an
artist in Raleigh. She seored a notable
triumph before over 2,000 of her home
folks. The News and Observer calls her
'a mistress of tone, a thing uncommon
among women viol mists."
In speaking of Miss Knox's concert of
last year the Tar Heel said, "Last year
Emilie Rose Knox came to the Universi
ty with her violin and received one of
the must remarkable ovations ever given
an artist in Chapel Hill. This year she
catue and proved that she could do it
again. She now has the satisfaction of
knowing that she holds the student body
in the hollow of her hand. Emilie Rose

Tho Wigue and Masque Club is
bringing Miss Knox here this year. This
organization, only formed last year, is
doing much to create interest in musical
oi ivies of the University. It is attempt
ing the same line of work that the Prince
ton Triangle is now doing, putting on
musical comedies and entertainments. Its
first musical comedy. "The Kalif of
Kavak," produced some time ago met
with the approval of the student body
and those who saw it.

The question of tho woman's building
is expected to be an important decision
at this meeting, although others will
be decided upon. One of these will be:
What shall be done about repairing the
old dormitories and buildings and how
much money shall be used for that pur
pose? Another question is concerning the
water supply of the University and
Chapel Hill. An enlargement of the
system has become almost a necessity.
Two years ago the University was forc
ed to postpone opening one week be
cause of lack of suflScient water.
It has already been decided that from
one to three men's dormitories are to
be built. The location has been fixed
across the Raleigh road from the re
cently constructed quadrangle, on the
edgo of Battle 's park.
The heavy rains Friday and Satur
day caused the remaining games of
the High School Tournament to bo held
over until this past Monday (16th) at
9:30 a. m. For several years, weather
conditions have not permitted the tour
naments to be run off in time for the
winning schools to be presented with
their cups. An astonishingly good brand
of tennis has been played throughout
the tournament thus far, and the last
games promise to bring out some of the
best high school tennis ever played

states. Starting . Easter Monday nt

attended dance, they went to Wndesboro,

stamp of approval by both dancers and
Upon concluding their North Carolina
engagements the Carolina Club went to

Carolina vs. Trinity, Emerson field,
3:30 p. m.
President Chase in chapel, ll:lo
The old fight between Trinity and
Carolina for supremacy on the diamond
will be resumed tomorrow afternoon wheu
Coach Kleiner's mighty crew, fresh from
a brilliant Southern trip, comes to Emer
son Field with the sole purpose of aveng
ing its stinging defeat in the final game
of the 1922 season. Confidence nnd
pride swells in every loyal heart that
heats for "dear old Trinity," and as the
Carolina pitcher trots to the mound in
tomorrow's game, no truce of doubt con
cerning the outcome of the battle will
lurk in the minds of the visitors. Yen,
even over-confidence that has spelled de
feat time and again may exist in the
ranks of the Methodist brethren.
There is no question of the fact that
Steiner has a fast team. On its recent
trip through South Carolina, Georgia,
and Alabama, many of the Smith's strong
est college nines fell before the battling
slants of Sanderson and Dempster, and
the powerful bats of Ormaml, Neal,
Spikes, Turner, and company. Auburn
succeeded iu aunexing a victory from the
Carolinians, hut Georgia. Georgia Tech.
Clemson, and others did not fare- so well.
It is likely that Sanderson will do the
hurling for Trinity tomorrow.
While the student body is skeptical
about this year's Blue and White team,
the nine itself is not, nor are those con
nected with athletics here. The Trinity
game will' be the acid--Ust-for ...Coach
Fetzer's men, and its outcome will either
prove or disprove our pessimistic critics,
The line-up will probably be the same
that faced Lynchburg, with the excep
tion of the pitching choice. That will
be n matter of doubt until after prelimi
nary practice for the game.
On account of threatening weather
Saturday afternoon, the Guilford College
game was postponed until Tuesday, April
24. W hile Emerson Field was a sheet
of water, Coach Fetzer did not allow his
team to loaf, hut sent the player through
a snappy warming up session and pep
game between Old South and Gerrard
Hall. The Tar Heel mentor is devoting
special attention to his young pitchers,
and seems pleased with their progress.
The first State College game is sched
uled to be played iu Raleigh Saturday.
It is thought that a third contest with
State will be arranged, with an Eastern
Carolina town as the scene of battle.
Gladstone, second baseman, nnd Correll,
centerfielder, have greatly strengthened

The victorious debaters demonstrated
a knowledge of the query that was re

chief factor in their favor. These two
high school lasses from the far eastern
part of the state proved themselves to be
the possessors of the exceptional debating
voices; their diction was almost perfect,
and their speeches showed carefulness
in preparation. The constructive speeches
of the contesting teams found the argu

with the chances slightly favoring the
negative. These chances were turned in
to a clean cut victory by these attractive
young girl debaters in the rebuttal, when

on two main contentions: first, that it
would be wrong in principle to give to
the railway labor board the power de

practicable. They denounced the pro
posed action as unsound because it vio
lated every fundamental concept of de
mocracy, nnd therefore was unsuited to
the needs of a republican form of gov

it would lend to 11 government leaning
toward paternalism, that it would com

powers which no court in the laud pos

Instituting a plan whereby they hope
the student body may be further edu
cated in their voting, the Order of the
Grail took a distinctive step yesterday
in posting placards at the polls and at
various other places on the campus
bearing the names and college activi
ties of the four candidates for the presi
dency of the Y. M. C. A. for next year.
After a long and heated discussion of
the matter at a meeting of the Grail
Sunday morning, it was decided that
this plan was to be continued through
out the remainder of the college year
mainly as an experiment and iu an ef
fort to further educate the voters, who,
by chance, might not know the candi
dates who are in the running. The
Grail realizes that there are objections
to this, and that they will perhaps be
criticized for so doing, but they also
realize that due to the greatly increas
ed numbers here it is almost impossi
ble for every man here to know the
candidates. It is not intended that the
Order shall be. looked upon as having
definitely entered politics. No one pres
ent at tho meeting voiced any senti
ment that the Grail go on record as
(cvifij (ii.y one of these or any other
candidate that may appear in the fu
ture. The members are absolutely im
partial in the move, and do it only for
what they believe to be the welfare of
the student body as a whole.
