DR. CHASE SPEAKS
TO LARGE CROWD
AT CHAPEL PERIOD
Speaks On Development of West
and North Carolina.
UNIVERSITY IS PIONEER
Says That Opportunities for Local
Schools Are Unlimited.
Memorial Hall was filled with a ca
pacity audience students, faculty mem
bers and townspeople yesterday ' morn
ing, when Dr. Harry Woodburn Chase,
president of the university recently of
fered the presidency of the University
of Oregon, arose and explained in a chal
lenging manner why he had spurned the
offer of the great western University.
Dr. Chase pointed out the work done
in the development of the state of
North Carolina and showed how alumnus
after alumnus of the University had
contributed to the great material up
building of this commonwealth.
The speaker was introduced briefly by
Mr. Harrf F. Comer, secretary of the
V. M. C.: A., who characterised him as
a man who is unafraid to stand up for
any ideal which he thinks is for the good
of the institution or the people who
compose that Institution. Dr. Chase pre
faced his . remarks with an apprecia
tion of the attitude that the student
body and members of the University
have shown in his recent decision to re
main at the head of the - University.
Afterwards he" went into a brief deK
scription of the phenomenal growth of
the western states, all of which he point
ed out has been the work of less than a
single generation. He called to the at
tention of his listeners the fact that while
in Portland, Oregon, he had the privi
lege of talking witji a lady eighty years
old who had been a member of one of
the wagon trains which had pioneered
their way into the Oregon when she was
even then a young girl. This growth
has been unusual, to say the least, but
when he brought, to mind certain facts
In regard to the development of the Old
North State, the audience marvelled not
so much at the tremendous growth of
the west but swelled with pride as that

THE MARCH MAGAZINE
"Alone" is Best Story of Year Editor's
Cry for Aid Seems to Have
By A Co-in '
The March issue of the Magazine con
firms the theory that the student body
is ever responsive to a sincere plea for
aid. The editor's cry for Pure Litera
ture has been , answered. Romances,
Writing the True Story, Moon-Studies:
What could be purer!
The article on North Carolina Litera
ture by E. S. Barr is an amusing satire.
Mr. Barr was certainly successful in his
search for "delicious morsels" and his
thread of comment is interesting." j
As usual, Mr. Fowler is ensnared by
words. In spite of this, "Alone" seems
to me the best story which the Magazine
has published this year. Mr. Fowler
developed the tragedy of his theme with
an artistry and delicacy of detail. May
he soon escape the lure of adjectives!
The Mer Rouge Affair by H. A., Beard
is an intelligent and well-written discus
sion. ; .'
After reading the first paragraphs of
"On Writing a True Story" I am quite
willing to believe the Editor's note. The
style is unmistakable.
In "The Colleges and Advertising" by
W. J. Olive the "characteristicaly Ameri
can" method of advertising is cleverly
applied to Universities and a possible
catalogue outlined. Mr. Olive did not
entirely escape the "characteristically
American" sense of humor, adding one
more parady to the ListeririV advertise

DURHAM HIGH WINS
STATE CAGE TITLE
Makes Fourth Time Durham
Won State Championship.
DEFEATS ASHEVILLE 12-3
Both Teams Show Wonderful Form
Warren, Atkins, Worley Star.
Durham High School's White Whirl
wing staged a wonderful come-back in
the high school championship finals in
the Tin Can Saturday night, ' making
one of the greatest rallies ever seen on
the Tin Can court to snatch victory from
defeat and annex its second consecutive
state title. The Westerners were lending
by a 12 to 3 margin at the end of the
first half and apparently had the contest
safely tucked away, but the lads from
the Bull City, led by the brillant work
of Captain Warren at guard, presented
an entirely different team in the second
period and Asheville failed to count
another free basket during the game
wlnle Edwards and Atkins for Durham
were piling up fourteen points between
them. .. ' v, :
The game was attended by one . of
the largest crowds ever to witness a high
school game in North ' Carolina, more
than two thousand fans being present.
Both Asheville and Durham were well
represented and each furnished plenty
of support for their heroes, Asheville's
high school band being on hand to give
music for the occasion. The win gave its
fourth championship and its second suc
cessive title under the direction of Coach
Frei. I l
Durham drew first blood when Chan
dler looped in a pretty shot following
the - tip-off. Worely, for Asheville,
quickly followed suit to tie the count
and then Estes dropped in another to
give the Westerners the lead which they
retained throughout the entire first half.
The first quarter ended in their favor
7 to 3 and they came back stronger than
ever in the second quarter to ring up
a quintet of tallies, increasing the lead
to' 12 to 3 at the half. '
The third quarter, however, saw a
rejuvenated White Whirlwind which
rushed Asheville off its feet, scoring
eight tallies to two for their opponents.
Coach Frei had evidently injected new
pep into his charges during the inter
mission for it was an entirely different
team that returned to the contest. The
Durham guards - completely smothered

HI SCHOOL FIVE
Durham Leads by Having Two
Men on First Team.
FIVE TEAMS COP HONORS
Two Complete Line-Ups and Honor
able Mention List Selected.
High school basketball, like other
branches of athletics, is reaching a high
er plane in the state and the South.
This is largely due to the better brand
of coaching that the prep- school teams
are getting due to the larger number
of star players going out of the various
Colleges into the teaching and coaching
This benefits not only the high school
players themselves, but it helps the col
leges of this section in that it gives them
a larger number of star players from
which to choose, the- varsity teams. Not
so many years ago0 the coach of a college
team- took over an entirely green squad
when he set about building his team
each year, having as the only experienced
men the ones from the previous year's
team. The. college coach of that time
started where the high school coaches
' When such teams as the two that
fought it out in the Tin Can last Saturday-
night for the State Championship
can' be'developed in the prep school cir
cles it looks good for the future South
ern Champions from Carolina and State
and the remainder of the North Caro
lina institutions. And it was not only
Durham and Asheville that developed
some star players this year. Charlotte,
Winston-Salenv Leaksville, Goldsboro
and Gastonia all had strong teams. Be
sides there were countless star individual
players' on the other" teams .throughout
Picking Bn All-Stat.c high school team
is ten times harder than picking a simi
lar quint : from the college' ranks, be
cause there are over ten times as many
high school teams to choose from. How
ever it Is the custom to choose five play
ers from the various teams each year and
label them the All-State team. So here
goes'! !'':- ' ':
.,-. Few Teams Seen in Action
Some players are scattered around who
frould rate any all-star pick, but are
handicapped by playing on a weak team.
Men who rated' the mention in previous
years may be slighted due to failure to
come up to standard. However with
out further apology, the pick follows.
Several Good Forwards
There are several good forwards
shown this season, among them being
Worley and Rogers, of Asheville, Chand
ler and Edwards, of Durham, Hurt, of
Charlotte, Chambers, of Leaksville, Gil-,

Greensboro. Of this group probably the
pick are Hurt, of Charlotte, and Wor

Fantasy, Romance, and Comedy Fea
ture New Type of Plays.
The Carolina Pluymakcrs will present
their spring bill of new plays Friday
and Saturday evenings, March 12 and
13, in the Playmakers Theatre. The New
Moon, A Carolina Pierrot and Clay com
prise .this bill, which is of a different
type from any that they have ever be
fore presented. These plays feature
fantasy, romance and comedy, and they
o,ffer a vivid contrast with the realistic
plays that in the pust have formed a
large part of the Playmakers' repertoire.
The reason for the change to this type
lies in tlie success of the production last
spring of the Chinese play, The Thrice
Promised Bride, This romance by Chen
Clung Il.slung proved so popular that the
producing staff of the Playmakers felt
thut other plays of a spectacular nature
should be included in their program.
The New Moon, a fantastic Comedy by
Telfair Peet, was written here last
spring and was held for production in
the new theatre building, so that the
novel stagecraft which this piece calls
for could be adequately handled. For
it a beautiful setting has been especially
designed, and lighting effects and cos
tumes will be a feature of the produc
tion. Original lyrics and music, com
posed by the author, will be played on
the clarionet by Mr. T. C. Byerly dur
ing the performance of the play. '
A Carolina Pierrot Is a romantic
fantasy, written by Mr. William MacMil
lan. Miss Nancy Battle, former Play
maker star, has written a dream play
which will be given as a prologue to this
play. Miss Battle will take the part of
Pierrette and in this role will give an
interpretative dunce which was especially
designed by her, for the play. Mr. and

music. i , ' ' '
