Whkn now we are ready to lay
down our pencil at the end of anei
term's work on the Tar Heel board the
realization comes to us that we have
done. those things we ought not to
.have done and we have left undone
those things we oug-ht to have done.
However we have no apology to make.
In a new venture we; have done bur
best. Tho the results have not meas
ured up to our ambitions yet we realize
that that is what we might expect.
When we go home to enjoy tin holi
days no thought of not having done
our duty in doing our best shall come
to mar the happiness of vacation.
In this issue we are publishing Car
olina's record in debate. When . we
glance over that long line of j victories
sprinkled with so very few defeats we
can readily understand how Carolina
holds in sych esteem her debaters.
Contrary lo.the custom at most institu
tions we have given them the privilege
to wear the college monogram. This
shows well in our favor. in the .matter
of recognizing other forms 6f . activity
in college besides athletics, r
Also the value of debate in develop
ing men of worth to the state is shown
by the long list of. men whose, names
are on this list of debaters .... and who
have made there impression, on the
life of North Carolina. This shows
what debate will do if encouraged by
popular sentiment at the university.
Among the University's sons who
have achieved greatness there pre a
great many debaters. But c go., over
the .whole list arid pick but those men
who were known in their college days
as the men who lead their ' classes.
See what a host of such men have
gained prominence. What will such
men do if we offer some encourage
ment at least, to intellectual ambi
tions? .r ,- :

As editor of the Tar Heel we take
this occasion to thank the staff of as
sistant editors for the aid they have
borne us this fall. The Tar Heel has
never before been as dependent upon
the assistants as this yeai. Still they
have never before exerted themselves
so in its behalf. -The men for the
most part have been given pertain
fields to cover and they have- done
their work well and have saved us Un
measured worrv. What ever '' success
has been made in the semi-weekly
issue is due to the assistants and not
to the man who takes delight in tor
turing the editorial page. For their
good work' we thank the board and
hope for them a Merry Christmas and
good things a !a indigestion.
We go to the professors and ask them
if we shall lie permitted to go home

and still have a chance to pass the
course. They say go to the president;
we have nothing to do with it. We
go to the president and ask him the
same question. He says to go to your
professor I have nothing. to do with it.
Then we go home. No one seems re
sponsible for keeping us here. . It re
mains to be seen who is responsible if
we are thrown.
Eat All You Want
The Tar Heel desires to publish a
record of the work done by the faculty
and the students in the "way of origi
nal research. The faculty here does
more research work of this kind than
any other in the South. We are
proud of the fact and we think the
alumui, who road the college
papir ' should lt ;u''.ih intfd with
it Sit far records have been received
from the scientific departments ml v.
We know that the other departments
also are doing work in this line but
we can't get the records. The Tar
Heel would appreciate it very much' ii
