ed before the Geological section a
paper on the Structure of the Deep
River Tria'ssic. Professor Cobb
also presented a paper before the
Geological Society of "America' on
the Geology of Core Bank, on which
he has been at work for a number
of years, in connection with his
other well known studies of the
features of our coast line. The
most important meeting that he
attended during the holidays was
that of the Association of American
Geographers, which is composed of
men picked trom the fellows of the
Geological Society of America for
their valuable contributions to Am
erican Geography. Here Professor
Cobb gave a paper on Hatteras
Island and its Shifting Sands. All
these papers were fully illustrated
with lantern slides. Among other
papers presented at the meeting

present at the meeting, and two of
the three papers read by Southern
men were presented by representa
tives of the University.
The first of these was by Dr. J.
D. Bruner on "The Exciting Force
in the Drama."
Dr. Smith presented a paper on
The Southern Use of You-All,"
which called forth much favorable
comment. This article says prac
tically the last word on the use of
the provincialism "you-all". The
Nation makes a very complimentary
allusion to Dr. Smith's paper, which
will appear in full in the first issue
of the Uncle Remus Magazine, to
be brought out in Atlanta in April.
THE CHRISTMAS BANQUET.
MARSE JESSE PROVIDES A
Evening of Songs and Feasting
Gladdens the Hearts of
.Twenty-five of the fortymen who
spent the holidays on the Hill as
sembled in the reading room of the
Y. M. C. A. Building to enjoy a
banquet on the night of Christmas
day. Although they represented
different sections and different
classes all had one thing in common
they were all spending Christmas
away from home. This served to
bring them together and to form a
feeling of fellowship as nothing else
could. Asa result the banquet was
a distinct success, and did much to
dispel, the loneliness of a Christmas
away from home.
Mr. E. S. W. Dameron, of , the
law class, on account of his wide ex
perience in that line as well as on
account of his matchless eloquence,
was chosen toastmaster, with one
accord. To the happy manner in
which he presided was due much of
the success of the banquet, which
was entirely informal. Impromptu
speeches were made by all those
"Marse Jesse," the college cater
er, served a spread I to the hungry
and homeless banqueters that was
eveu above the usual high standard
of the products of his art.
After the last course had been
annihilated the boys gathered
around the ample fire-places to
smoke and sing songs, some of
them of college days, and some of
them of days and places that brought
a dreamy look even into the seuti
meuial eyes of Mr. W. P. Stacy. Fi
nally when Mr. Jackson was observ
ed to yawn, the crowd gave a yack-ety-yack
for Prof. Gore, to whom
they were indebted for the use of the
building, and adjourned to their
No More Grafting.
Dr. Venable made the annouuee
ment last Monday morning that
the facultv had passed the ruling
that each student shall be allowed
five absences per month from reci
tation as previously; however if any
student persist in taking more than
his allotted share of absences
monthly his name shall be stricken
from the rolls of the University for
his second offense.
Dr. Venable emphasized this
announcement by stating further
that ten men had been denied the
right to register for the spring
term on account of deficiency in at
tendance and class-.tanding during
Heretofore the penalty for taking
superfluous grats has been consid
ered a myth; doubtless it will now
be considered as slightly more real.
