The time has not yet come for the
University sermon. Visiting- celeb
rities have departed for we know
not where. Peace and quiet are trying-
to reig-n over the campus. But
the Tar Heel's eye is skinned for
bubbles upon the pool of college life.
We hope that the Tar Heel's head
will not also be skinned if it should
be a little too zealous in pursuit of
news. No one will havea fire or break
a legr, or even loose a"cow, or confis
cate a load of junk. Yet such
things that do take place, and some
that we hope are yet to take place,
will appear in our issue And pray
be patient, friends, we know that
we are apt to get a little yellow,
but we will not interview the Chief
of Police. Something- might be said
about personal reasons for this, but
but we are not growing- reminis
cent, even to fill up the news columns.
THERE will be a mass meeting
Friday night. Its purpose is to see
what can be done iu regard to the
proposed trainer. The track team
needs him this spring. And we are
going to get him. The meeting is
going to be a good one. Good speak
ers from the faculty and the student
body will talk to thoe present.
Enthusiasm is incidental. Some
thing is going to be done, with en
thusiasm preferably, without it if
necessary. But remember that it is
to be an occasion. The band is
coming. In fact just about every
body is coming. If you do not want
to regret it, see that you come, too.
When you get there, help. We
have got to get the trainer so we
might as well begin. If we let this
chance at strengthening our football
team, making something of our
track and basketball teams, and up
lifting athletics generally go, there
is something wrong. And that fault
will be in us.and not in the proposed
WELL our readers are to get a par
tial rest for a space. The next issue
of the Tar Heel is not exactly ours,
but the Y. M. C. A's. It may be up
to us to begin boosting this issue
now, but just you wait and see it!
Not knowing its exact nature we
ran not sav much. And vet while
we hesitate to commit ourselves1
upon our own paper, we believe
that the next edition will contain
There has been a general cele
bration of Poe's centennial through
out the South. Certainly it
time that he should meet with ;
part of the recognition due him
Virginia is to be congratulated upon
her gifted alumnus and not alone
upon Poe, but also upon the spiri
that gives his genius recognition.
Most colleges do too little to
spread the fame of its alumni. Car
olina seems to do less than almost
any of those who do little. As Dr.
Smith suggested at the senior bah
quet, the outside world knows lit
tle of William R. Davie. But Gen
eral Davie is not the only one
mi i ,
x nere are many wny nave gone
trom here and have seemingly
oeen forgotten Dy us. iney can
get along without onr praise, espec
ially those that are dead, but can
we get along without giving their
merit recognition? We think not,
and it looks to us asif weneeded to
makeup this lack of appreciation of
our worthy alumni m the future.
The appreciation is here, we do not
doubt that, but we should give
voice to it.
A Proposition in Regard to
An outsider who knows nothing
about our situation here, on hear
ing the frequent discussions on foot
ball would think that we will have
the most powerful team in America
next year. You cannot ask a man
in college about the football material
in his comunity but what he will
sav, jl nave a 410 pounder 1 am
going to bring here next year."
Even now it is generally understood
that the great pobceman of Sanford,
who shouldered a mule by the tail,
will be here.
Big men are all right. We want
all we can get, but big men will
not make a football, team. It takes
weight, spirit, nerve, and the
greatest prerequisite experience.
A man has to know how before he
can do any thing. The more he
knows about a thing the better he
can do it. This is as much true of
football as any thing else. The
more a. man knows about the game
the better he could play it. We
want experienced men. It is true
that men get experience on the class
and scrub teams, but this is not
enough. We want men who have
had experience before coming here.
How can we get such experienced
We have a few prep, schools in
the State which play football. We
want more, for the prep schools
of this State are our student re
cruit, and should be our athletic re
cruit. Oak Ridge and a few others
are doing their part and we feel the
good results. We have others that
could do equally as well, but which
are doing nothing notning, at .least
for athletics. Now there is the
Appalachian Training School. If
it can send a man like Story without
his having had previous experience,
what could it do if it had a man to
train such men? It has plenty of
material there now just as good
physically as Story was, and these
men could be developed if they had
any way to become trained.
This brings up another impor
tant point. We must arrange for
such prep schools to have their
men trained. We must send our
graduate players who want to
teach, to these prep schools. We
must get behind them and see that
they get positions at these places.
Now, we have Rogers, who grad
uates this year, and he would make
a good man for some place, for he
could coach both football and base
ball. He has been an average stu
dent.Jan exceptional athlete, and we
should try to place him in a good
place, where he can do good for
himself as well as the University.
The Appalachian Training School
is virgin soil in athletics. "Go"
would not only make a good teacher
there, but a good coach for both
teams. C. B. S.
