SENIORS AND FRESHMEN HOLD
New Men Advised as to Their Position
They Go On Record as Op
posed to Hazing
A meeting-the most significant, per
haps, that has been held by students
here in recent years, was held jointly
by the Senior and freshmen classes
Saturday afternoon. The purpose o
the meeting was to help the? new men
in choosing the proper attitude and to
inspire them with the best ideals o
the University. Particularly in poin
was the question of hazing, against
which all classes at the University are
using their influence.
- ATTITUDE OF NEW MEN.
Mr. W. A. Dees, president of thi
senior class, after a few words in ex
plaining the object of the meetin g
called Mr. G. W. Thompson as a re
presentative of the senior class to ad
dress the new men. . ' . . ' i
Mr. Thompson spoke of the attitud
which members of the freshman class
should1 tnlce ' in University life. ' l H
congratulated the class on entrance in
to the University with its opportuni
ties and privileges. He asked the co
operation of the new men in making
the University what it ought to be
from the student standpoint. In some
colleges freshmen are distinguished
from other classes by some mark. It
is not so here. What should be the
attitude of the freshman class? What
' should be our attitude to""lKfs7 class?
The question is answered in a word
every man who enters the University
should conduct himself as a gentle
man. Nothing more can can, be ask
ed. Then it is the duty of every
other man to. respect him as a gentle
man. ' ' ' '
LOOKING TO NEXT YEAR
Mr. I. C. Moser, who was next call
ed upon,, spoke of the part which the
present freshman class will have to
play in college 'life next year. The
first lesson which a University stu
dent should learn, he said is the les
son of loyalty. When loyalty to the
University becomes a guiding princi
ple in th'e life of a student there is no
danger that he will do anything that
would tend to injure the University.
As members of the sophomore class
next year, your attitude will largely
determine the conduct of the campus.
Your condition is unique. Practically
the whole of the three upper classes
have united in the purpose to put ha;,
ing out of this institution. It largely
depends upon you as to whether this
good beginning shall continue. Wil I
you use your influence to this end?
Mr. B. C. Stuart was next intro
duced. ; He said the,,,, present sopho
more class had done more than any
class heretofore to remedy the worse
evil in the University the evil of haz
ing. He asked , every freshman who
was willing to take a similar step to
that already taken by the sophomore
class to rise;' The class rose in a body
amid the, enthusiastic cheers of the!
members of other classes pi esent.
The president then called Mr;
Thompson Webb who read to the class
the following resolution: K ' '
In view of fact that the class 1914

Edwin R. Weeks Company to Open Sea
, son With Entertainment Saturday
In the Edwin R. Weeks Company
which will appear here Saturday night
October 1, Chapel Hill will have what
the Star Course Committee consider one
of the best entertainments of the year.
As to the nature of the entertainment
The Alkahest : Lyceum System has
this to say: -. -
I "Mr. Weeks has the prestige of a
European ton r, was the first entertain
er selected by the International, Com
mittee to gp to Panama and has' re
peatedly played 7 return engagements
on the largest courses throughout the
' ''He gives original monologues,
humorous , and pathetici recitations,
parodies and medleys of his own ar
rangement operettas and musical ex
travaganzas of his own composition,
humorous character sketches and last,
but r not least, impersonations of
iamous men, past and present. In fact
vith his unusual versatility; he is en
abled to give, with the co-operation of
t wo assisian ts, all the variety . usually
furnished by half a dozen artists, and
to those who enjoy wholesome humor
knd high class, musical features, we
highly recommend this company."
j The following is Weeks' own intro
duction to himself which is forwarded
to the papers of the towns in which he
is to appear: '
. The Edwin R. Weeks Company, a
trio of Mendicant Musicians, ' migra
ting from Maine to Mexico with a me
lange of music, mostly melodious, and
mirth, mainly merry, mean soon to
meander into your midst.
Your local committee under whose
auspices we appear, need your valued
assistance and need it with an exceed
ing: muchness. , I have heard editors
and newspaper men say that they
would willing help along the cause of
the Lyceum Course if they could be
furnished 'stories" concerning the tal
ent that would make interesting read
ing. .;v;. ., ,;. .V.r;v ;
To that end I have compiled some of
the Good Stuff. Like the bread of life,
partake of it freely. My first occupa-
tian in life was that of a "printer's
devil." I know something of the Pow
er of the Press. I helped turn one by
hand. I may say in passing that I
have likewise chased ths elusive "round
try square" and have been , "soaked"
with the well known "strap oil."
I was introduced to an audience in
my native town not long since by a
gentleman who commented on my
early occupation. He said: "I feel
in presenting this erstwhile printer's
devil to this sea of upturned faces that
am literally 'between the devil and
the deep sea." - .- .. -. . v. :. .
That is why I subscribe myself,
Edwin R. Weeks.

'Rev. Melton Clark of Greensboro the
' Speaker. Many Srudents Enlisted
I ,: , for the Courses
j The Bible Study Rally, which is
conducted annually by the Young
Men's Christian Association was held
for this year Sunday afternoon in Ger
rard Hall. The speaker of the occas-
sion was Rev. Melton Clark, pastor of
the First Presbyterian Church of
Greensboro. Mr. Clark's subject was
the Bible. He said in part:
I A man is not crowned unless he
Strives loyally. Suppose a person's
upport depends upon his knowledge
Of the game of chess. He will strive
o be as proficient as possible in the
fame. Our spiritual support and well
jEare depnds upon our knowledge of the
Bible. No one has a thorough educa
pation who does not know the Bible,
jit is read and studied triore than any
jother book, A! quotation from it can
be understood and appreciated by any
intelligent audience. The Bible has
had a vast influence over our ancestors
and Christianity has been the religion
of all the leading nations since its
A man in order to understand the
Bible must read it consistently and
with concentration of mind. He
should study it ,for.4h.e . j, great truths
there are in it and not for apparent in
consistencies. Many men seem edu
cated: yet they lack culture and re
finement of character. The Bible
gives us this culture and refinement.
It teaches us how to live and how to
die. It stands for the principles which
lead to true success in life. When
once we get interested in the Bible
great mines of wealth are opened up.
We get from it a spiritual satisfaction
and peace. It is the duty of Chris
tians to study the Bible in order to
strengthen and fortify their own faith.
It is the duty of non-Christians to
study the Bible to seek for the truth.
Mr. Clark forcefully presented his
arguments with very appropriate illus
trations, and those who fortunately
heard him had their interest in the
Bible greatly stimulated.
The Bible Study Rally was the pre
liminary move toward organizing
classes for the study of the Bible. The
courses of Bible studyr which the Y.
M. C. A. offers this year are:
1. The Life of St. Paul.
2. The Life of Christ. '
3. A Study of Old Testament Char
r Classes in each of these courses are
led by men specially prepared for the
work. Last year more than 400 stu
dents were enrolled in these classes and
a larger number is expected this year.
A cordial invitation is extended to
each student to join a class. Over two
hundred men have already been enroll
ed as a result of the meeting Sunday
afternoon and the canvass made by stu
dents Sunday night. It is expected
that fuliy as many more will be en
listed in the Bible Study Courses.
