Thkkk are very few things on the
University campus that tend to make
it beautiful. For several years the
number of birds on the campus has
been increasing-. Blue birds have be
come plentiful and. they add much to
the charm of our i surroundings by
their constant cheerfulness. The open
fields back of the Carr Building- and
Davie Hall have become the favorite
abode of a number of field larks. How
much charm it adds to'those old fields
to see some score of larks gracefully
sailing- about and how pleasing to lis
ten to there twittering these cold days!
And then in the spring when th
weather shall turn warm again and
the crystal, balmy air shall call one
out at six or seven in the morning,
what can more remind one of those
happy days at home than to hear some
old field lark whistling his clear
"Laziness will kill you?" But we
bid fair to lose all our friends. For
some days past we have noticed some
one with a gun, behind the Zoology
laboratory shooting at the birds. To
hunt is one of the finest of sports.
But to take a gun and slip up behind
one of these trustful birds on the cam
pus and take a pot shot at him is what?
We'll not try to name it. But if the
man who did the shooting shall hap
pen to read this we hope he will look
at his deed in other light.
In our last issue we published a let
terof complaint from one of the student:
at the University who find trouble in
securing a bath . As he stated there
are not. more than a dozen baths in
college in good running order. Eight
of these are in the gym where one
can only get to them during a certain
part of the day. There are here at
least seven hundred and fifty-one men
who want a bath at least once a Week
If each man would choose a certain
time a week to take his bath and one
man was to step "under the shower
just as another stepped out then wt
might possibly all get a good bath
once a week. But unfortunately most
of us fee! that we must have our bath
Saturday evening or not at all, or, at
least, that we cannot possibly consider
taking a bath before 4:30 Not know
ing how the manager of these affairs
is fixed we do not know whether it is
possible to remedy these conditions.
One thing is certain. We must have
baths. Lectures are given before the
students in chapel on the benefits of
cleanliness and the evil results of slo
venliness in the matter of bathing.
The students want to keep clean.
They must have the opportunitj.
Mitch interest has been taken this
fall in the inter-class tennis series.
Tins will give an incalcuable impetus
'.o-tennis on our courts. Only oue
thing mars the beauty of it all. Time
after time when a close match has
b;en in progress we have heard
cc.tain remarks that were cast
;il the players in a way of jeers.
Tliis has been done generally by a
certain kind of laugh. More, criticism
and contempt can be expressed in a
laugh than. in a hoot. So far as we
know none of the players have been
bothered by these sneers. But they
show4that the man who makes them is
viewing the situation from a wrong
point of view. When any one does
such a thing on the football or base
ball field the condemnation of student
sentiment is swift and certain. It
will be well to remember that those
men on the tenuis courts afe doing
the same thing those men on the ten
nis courts are. They are doing what
they can to develop themselves into
the best players possible, that they
may earn distinction for their alma
mater in the realm of tennis. Often
there come freshmen here who
play on our baseball team or pur foot
ball team. It does not happen once in
ten years that a freshman conies here
and makes a place on our tennis team.
We develop our own representatives.
How important then the work of this
class series. Don't do any thing to
discourage those men. They are ex
erting themselves to the utmost to
make themselves tennis players worthy
to represent North Carolina. Every
unkind laugh cuts a bleeding:, wound
in the growing prominence of theUni
versity of North Carolina as a predom
inant leader in tennis. You are neith
er doing yourself credit nor your Uni
versity justice when you throw the
slightest stumbling block in the path
of one that is doing what you your
self have not the energy to undertake

Last year the University annual
was considered one of the three
best gotten out by the colleges of the
United States. This year the Yacke
ty Yack board have determined to head
the list. But the students have got to
do a great deal in the way of help
Every one can help financially by sub
scribing for a copy or mote. The
cost is not much and it' will al
ways be a matter of pride to you to
point to the book and speak with pride
of how North Carolina led the colleges
of the country in the beauty and value
of her annual publication. Then
there is another way in which the stu
dents must help get out this Yackety
Yack. Last year the annual might
have been first had its literary value
been comparable to its appearance.
That was because the editing of it
was left entirely to the board. The
board is doubtless composed of the
best men in college for the work but
they cannot be so broad-minded as to
give to the publication the flavor of
the whole student body. Every stu
dent of every ambition must get his
share of work in if this year's Yackety
Yack i's going to head the list of an
