MM HOW TO
COMBAT THE FLU
Tells First Year Men Not to
Study. Too Hard and Take
Plenty of Exercise. 1
At chapel yesterday morning Dean
Bradshaw talked to the Freshmen on
the general topic of keeping in good
physical condition during the present
flu epidemic. "You have a chance to
do two things during the next week,"
said Mr. Bradshaw, "You must do
a week's work and at. the. same time
keep up your general health."
The dean gave a list of rules for
combating the spread of the flu on
the campus. These things he men
tioned were: keep in the open air as
much as possible, keep your - rooms
well ventilated, and keep in the best
general physical shape possible.;
"If I were taking these exams, I
would not figure on passing them by
studying all night, by cutting out all
pvvrpisf arid hv missiner one or two
meals a day. v
"Not only for your own sake, but
nlsn f nr the sake of the V man who
roms with you, the man you eat with
and the men you associate with, try
to keep from catching it, go to the
infirmary' at once. The University
is adequately prepared at present to
take care of any emergency, that may
arise. ' : ;

Strudwick, Hodgin, and Mintz
All Have Roles in Plays
Strudwick, Just One Year
Out, Plays Leading Part;
Koch Cites Interesting Pacts.
The step from amateur to pro
fessional in ' any field is ' always re
garded' as a long one, hard to make,
with a wide breach in between.
It would seem that the Carolina
Playmakers, widely known amateur
Little Theatre group of the Univer
sity, are fast narrowing that breach.
Word just received here shows that
three former Playmakers out of the
University one, two and three years,
respectively, are making good in lead
ing theatrical companies as profes
sional ' actors, and that one is play
ing a lead ' role in New York.
By name they are Shepherd Strud
wick, : D. . H. Hodgin, and Claudius
Minlz. Strudwick, only one year a-
way from the , Playmakers, has the
lead role in the Chinese play, "The
Yellow Jacket," at Daly's 63rd Street
Theatre in New York City; and
Mintz and Hodgin, who were grad
uated here in '26 and '27 respective
ly, are both playing in Fritz Leiber's
Shakespearean Repertory Company.
'Strudwick's rise in the professional
theatre has been particularly phe
nomenah Armed with an A.Bj de
gree, three years of experience with
the Playmakers, and plenty of cour
age, he advanced on New York last
fall to seek his fortune. r.
Soon after his arrival he applied
to the Coburn Players for a place as
an actor and on the basis of his ex
perience with the Playmakers he was
given a minor part, that of assistant
One day the actor who was play
ing the lead received an offer , at a
large advance in salary and left the
company. Mr. Coburn, who had been
observing the North Carolina youth
attentively in rehearsals, came to him
and said: "I'm going to give you the
lead." '.::f - .
Strudwick took the new part and
made a big success of it, his experi
ence with the Playmakers here in the
Chinese play, "The Marvelous Ro
mance of Wen Chun Chin" standing
him in good stead. He is now play
ing a prominent ' part in "Falstaff "
which opened Christmas night.
Strudwick is from Hillsboro and
played leading roles with the Play
makers for. three years, making all
three tours of the group last year. "
It is an interesting fact that Mintz,
who is most interested - in Shakes
pearean drama, made his first appear
ance : with the Playmakers in a
Shakespearean play. It was "Taming
of the ' Shrew' which the Playmakers
presented back in the fall of 1923 in
their Forest Theatre here, and Mintz
