Training For Success.
Mr. Hogue impressed the fact that
whjle in college one should get the
training which will be of most value
in life. The strife and temptations of
later life are largely shut out from the
peaceful college community. Is there
not) danger that in this calm period of
man's life, the intellectual doubt of
theiclass room may supplant that faith
which enables a man to meet success

You must mix with your fellows, learn

TENNIS ASSOCIATION MEETS
Officers Chosen and Plans Outlined
For the Year
The Tennis Association met in Ger
rard Hall Monday for the election of
officers. Mr. Luke Lamb was unani
mously elected president, and Mr. Mar
shall Wyatt was made secretary and
treasurer, also without opposition.
Students who wish to join the Asso
ciation are requested to see one of the
following: Messrs. J. W. Lasley, Fields
Eulace, or "Bill" Ellis. Fee, $1.50.
The grounds are to be cleaned off im
mediately to make room for the grow
ing number of men who are becoming
interested in tennis.
Regulations governing the Associa
tion are as follows :
1. No player or set of players will be
allowed the use of a court during an
2. At 4 o'clock each evening the col
lege bell will tap twice as a signal for
all play to cease upon all the courts.
All waiting players will then replace
those in possession of the courts.
3. If no one claims a court for ten
minutes after the ringing of the bell,
those in possession may resume play.
4. No one is allowed to get the court
in the first part of the evening and
pledge it for the second part.
5. In the case of tournaments the
foregoing regulatipas do not apply, i
they will strive. These things are
good, but theyxannot be bought at
the expense of the better qualities.
The little things are often the more
important ones and the things we
place firsthould often come last. Con
secration to the daily tasks and duties
is the best preparation for success and

"FRESHING" MUST STOP
So Say Carolina Students Who Take
Students of all classes at the Universi
ty have come together in an agreement
to exert their best efforts to abolish all
fonnsof "freshing." This movement,
which has the best nen in college
behind it, seems to be the result of a
growing feeling of resentment against
hazing. It is believed that in the
jface of this opposition freshmen will
not again be molested. Every man of
the sophmore class has pledged him
self not only not to haze, but to report
any such offence known to him. The
following is the pledge which the stu
dents are signing:
r Whereas, hazing is chactenstic of
small colleges and Preparatory Schools
and is regarded as puerile and out of
place in a University Community,
Therefore, we, the undesigned,
pledge ourselves to exert every effort
to suppress all forms of hazing in
which force or intimidation is used.
And to that end further pledge our
selves to use all reasonadle means
to detect and prosecute openly, all of

NEW MEN INTRODUCED
COLLEGE LIFE AND
Speeches On the "Phases" Heard
By Large Crowd. Recep
College night, from a student stand-"
point has come to be one of the most
importa-it students gatherings of the
year. To say that the meeting Thurs
day night was a success is putting it
mildly. The night was fine, the crowd
good, and the speeches were excellent.
College "atmosphere" pervaded the
meeting and the yells and songs were
given with ringing enthusiasm.
The meeting was in charge of D.
B. Bryan, vice-president of the Y. M.
C. A. His opening words were words
of welcome to the new men. "You
are now being- initiated into our col
lege life," said the speaker, "and are
now University men. The Y. M. C.
A. presents to you the phases of Uni
versity life, and asks you to encourage
and support these phases as true Uni
vesity men should. The Honor Sys
tem stands foremost in our student life,

its staunchest supporters, Mr. W. A.
The Honor System.

of its introduction at the University "
and of the success with which it has
worked here. It is not a system of
spies, proctors, and police, but a sys
tem which presumes that every student
is a gentleman. The only standard is
a man's honor. It is a democracy re
duced to the individual. It recogonizes
that certain things are dishonorable,
such as gambling, cheating, and dis
respectable conduct, and places a ban
on these things. Students can sup
port it, first, by acting honorably, and
second, by reporting all dishonorable
conduct'. Its success depends upon the
support of the individual, and let every
man in the University stand firmly be

In part Mr. Mcintosh said:
The University is the natural leader
among North Carolina colleges.
Though not a member of the S. I. A.
A., we have standards in athletics that
rival all colleges and surpass many.
The large numbers here make it possi
ble for the University to inaugurate
reformations in college athletics. Some
years ago a departure from the usual
practices was made by the University,
and professional athletes were debar
red from the teams. It is the plan
here to have sport for sport's sake.
Every man in the University is en
couraged to take an active part in some
of the many phases of college athletics.
If you are a big strong man, try foot
ball, and if you are not inclined to
football, try track work. Tennis, base
ball, and the gynasium offer good op
portunities for development of the
physical man. The elegibility of
players and fair playing come under
