The heating plant of N. C. C. W.
is composed of four huge boilers, two
of which are always kept going.
Thousands of tons of coal are kept in
the coal yard and are placed me
chanically in the furnace in order to
save workers from unbearable heat.
In January, 725 tons of coal were
consumed, and the average daily is
from twenty to thirty tons.
Discovered at Last!
According to a doctor at the Uni

rays of the sun are the direct cause of
the organic unrest which we call
“spring fever.” They must be rather
What! No Rouge?
Sophomores at the University of
Tulane have issued a fa^al decree
freshmen. On a specially designated
day no freshman can wear lipstick
rouge. A committee of stern judges
has been appointed to observe all
conformers, who will have their faces
branded with indelible lipstick dur
ing the day.
Fear Akron Has Been Irre
Fear that the airship Akron might
have been irreparably damaged when
she struck ground at Lakehurst Feb
ruary 22 was expressed by Washing
ton authorities. Representative Mc-
Clintic, Democrat, Oklahoma, chair
man of the House naval subcommit
tee investigating the airworthiness of
the giant vessel said, “I certainly
won’t make a flight in that airship.”
He did say, however, that when the
Akron’s sister ship, the Macon,
completed that he would recommend
that the committee take a ride aboard
her. Mr. McClintic and four other
representatives were on the ground a1
Lakehurst waiting for the Akron to
be prepared to take them aloft when
the mishap occurred.
Sad, But True!
Recently, the dean of mei
Princeton University made an ad
in which he stated that one-third of
the students in America’s educational
institutions today had no business
go beyond high school.
“Washington and Lee Swing’
After Rudy Vallee called “Wash
ington and Lee Swing” a Tulane
school song, the manager of the Tu
lane band wrote Washington and Lee
a letter stating that the song was
Washington and Lee’s. However, in
order to avoid publicity, Tulane is
having a new song written. Now,
Washington and Lee can own solely
their own song.
Phi Beta Kappa Bids
Eight students at Emory, all un
dergraduates, were initiated into Phi
Beta Kappa, national honorary
scholarship fraternity, recently. Six

Noted Educator Dies

These Worn-Out Excuses!
Originality simply does not exist
at University of Alabama when it
comes to making excuses. About
three or four hundred students put
up a plea to be allowed “cuts” each
semester. It was rather amusing to
see again the same excuses that these
University students learned in gram-
Chapel attendance is compulsory at
many schools as well as at Salem.
The University of South Carolina
contends that abolishment of this cus
tom w'ould be used as propaganda in a
campaign to reduce state appropria
tions. It must be an important part
of school life.
Censorship Stirs Britain
Questions of censorship are greatly
exercising the minds of many people
who hold that the movies are pre
dominant in fashioning tastes of the
public and creating standards of man
ners and morals. Mr. K. C. Shortt,
chairmain of the British Board of
Film Censors, is at present putting
the finishing touches to a report of
the work of the board during the past
twelve months. Mr. Shortt has been
accused of favoritism at the expense
of British-made pictures. He has, it
is said, passed in the case of American
and European continental films
sequences which he would have
drastically blue-penciled had they
come from a native studio.
Washington Hair Offered
Six snow white hairs, with docu
ments attesting that they are from the
head of George Washington, have
been offered the New York Public Li
brary. They are sewed with black
thread upon an ink blotted post card
nearly 100 years old, on which is
written the story of a college prank
that brought them ultimately to their
present owner. Dr. R. A. Baker, pro
fessor of chemistry of the college of
the City of New York. The hairs
came into possession of the Baker
family as an heirloom from the grand-
brighter world, the children
the old, all gather on the
streets, ready to set the fireworks.
They light them one after another
and follow with glowing eyes the
brilliance of their red glittering tails.
The sky is as a black-haired beauty
adorned with rare sparkling diamonds
and rubies. Everybody is dressed
their very best, many in beautiful
silks, richly embroidered with bright
extravagant colors. Men, children
and even women on their little feet,
are making their way through the
Then sometimes a long procession
masquerade passes, accompanied by
musicians. Often people carry
enormous dragon, consisting of a i
lion parts, which seems to be creep
ing slowly, winding contentedly, for
it is its holiday.
People on high stilts, dressed as
monsters, beauties, beasts, and heroes,
dance gracefully around the dragons.
Even monks participate in the mas
querade, for this is a religious cele
bration as well.
The higher classes exchange some
times with flaming red cards, for red
is the color of happiness, with beauti
ful words wishing happiness in
scribed on them, sometimes people
send one another gorgeous tapestries
of red silk with black characters.
It is a national holiday indeed—a
holiday to which the masses of people
attach enormous importance.
THE DAY OF BATTLE
Far I hear the bugle blow
To call me where I would not go.
And the guns begin the song,
‘Soldier, fly or stay for long.’
“Comrade, if to turn and fly
Made a soldier never die,
Fly I would, for who would not?
’Tis sure no pleasure to be shot.
“But since the man that runs away
Lives to die another day,
And cowards’ funerals, when they
Are not wept so well at home,
“Therefore, though the best is bad.
Stand and do the best, my lad;
Stand and fight and see your slain,
And take the bullet in your brain.”
—A. E. Housman.
father of Mrs. Baker. He was a

the story was current that at
Washington’s death each of his body
servants had received a lock of his
hair. As a reward to Mr. Dawney
for bringing down a heavy piece of
furniture for him, Hamlet, an old
home servant, gave him the hair.

Collier, Jr., the deeply involved hero.
Pleasure is not the one I love:
Her laughter in the market-place
Makes every fool her echo there
And from her finger-tips she
Wild kisses in the open air.
Give me that little miser, Joy,
Who hoards at home her quiet
And offers with her two soft lips
A warmer kiss than any thrown
By Pleasure, from her finger-tips.
