CAROLINA WILL MEET
ON HILL FRIDAY NIGHT
Team Will Be Carmichael and Mc
Donald, Liipfert, and Hanby
FIRST OF REGULAR GAMES
When the Carolina basketball quint
meets South Carolina Friday night
in Bynum Gymnasium ,the 1921 bas
ketball season will be officially un
der way for the Blue and White
team. Although an exhibition, game
was played with the Durham Y. M.
C. A. before Christmas, the regular
schedule opens with the South Caro
lina contest Friday night. Carmichael
and MacDonald at forwards, Liipfert
at center, and Hanby and Shepherd
at the guard positions, is the line-up
to take the floor in the initial con
test, according to Coach Major Boye.
Erwin and Morris, guards, letter men
of last season, will also get a chance
to play before the game is over.
It is believed that the South Caro
linians will bring a strong quint and
will put up a good fight, but the
Carolina team is confident of vic
tory by a comfortable margin.
South Carolina will play State Col
lege, in Raleigh, on the night follow
ing, and the results of the two games
in comparison are anticipated great
ly, as an indication of just what kind
of early season form the two state
Coach Boye's squad has been hard
at it since the holidays, and scrim
mages have been held every night
practically. Douglas and Rourk, let
ter men last season, and two of the
most dependable men on the team,
have been ruled ineligible for first
months playing, and Murray, out for
the first time this year but a very
promising player, is another that will
be unable to participate in games for
the first month.
In the game Friday night other
men that will get a trial are Woodall,
Graham, Williams," and possibly
Eaton. All of these men have shown
up well in early season preparation,
and may make some on the varsity
hustle to hold their positions.
MANY STUDENTS WILL TAKE
THE LAW EXAMINATION
The examinations for the fall term
of the Law School will begin Satur
day, the 22nd of January, and end
on the 29th, giving a week and one
day for the examinations.
There will be no let-up in the work
between terms, the Spring term be
ginning Monday, January the 31st.
The Law School has onlv two terms
to the school year, unlike the other
schools of the University which use
the Quarter System. The Law School
last year used the Quarter System
but it was found not to work as well
in the case of the Law Schmol as in
the other schools of the University,
so this year the Law Schol reverted
to the 3d anethod of two terms to
the school year.
Many students in the Law School
are planning to take the examina
tions f or admittance te the bar when
the examinations begin the last Mon
day in January, which happens this
year to fall on the last day in the
month, the 31st. About twenty stu
dents are said to be planning to take
the bar examinations from the Law
School although several of whom
have not as yet finished their course
in the Law School.
The examinations or admittance
to the bar .are held in Raleigh twice
yearly, one on the last Monday in
January and the other on the last
Monday in August. The (examinations
are giyen by the Supreme Court of
the State. Two years f reading in
certain prescribed texts re neces
sary for admittance to the bar in
North Carolina. Sixty-six questions
are made out for the applicants for
license to practice law and the
' answering of at least two thirds, or
forty-four of them is necessary for
admittance to the bar.
Starting a precedent by wearing
full dress the Lariat staff enjoyed a
banquet at the gold room of the Ra
leigh hotel last Monday evening.
Dean A. C. Flowers of the law de
partment, Mrs. Flowers and Otis H.
Miller of the journalism department
were the honored guests. Music by
the Hornburg brothers was inter
spersed in the program. The entire
affair was carried out with perfect
ease, beginning with a promenade in
the mezzanine where couples ex
changed greetings with their friends
and concluding with a few minutes
of chat after the dinner.

That is to Consummate Delay Means Increased Future
(By DANIEL L. GRANT)
In a roundabout way, we con
cluded Tuesday that we were now,
as a State, up against a quite natural 1
outgrowth in our life when the peo-!
pie demands more educational facili- 1
ties, in every department of public
education; and we promised to con-
tinue with the discussion of the prac-
tical educational problem that we are '
against, and the vision we must have '
for tomorrow. We shall try to point
out that the present demand is in a
ereater scheme of things, and is not
the over-night fancy of any man who time in February. Dr. Shory, an

part of this system can't go forward ,
while the others stand still. The
public and high schools must be do
ing good work in order to feed stu
dents to the colleges and the univer
sity. And the higher institutions in
turn must be doing good work in
order to feed good men and women
back into the public and high schools
in order to train them thoroughly
for advanced work. And so the
whole thing must go forward, or lag
together. Unfortunately they have
all lagged together.
It only takes the report of the re
cent Educational Commission to con
vince us of the conditions in the
public and high schools of the State.
After two years' work in our school
system, conducting investigations in
every part of the State, the Com
mission's report shows that the sixth
grade pupils in our public schools are
on the average, from one and a half
to two years behind those of other
States; two years' work short of the
standard that we have set for sixth
grade pupils. This is not a hurried
conclusion, nor a surmise. It is a
tragic fact that was borne in upon
the Commission in its two years' work
conducting investigations in every
subject: English, History, Mathe
matics, Latin, Spelling, etc., and in
every part of the State. The Com
mission also reports that of the 358
high schools reported, 104 are cap
able of doing full four years' high
school work, while at least 225 are
attempting and failing because of a
lack of competent teachers and equip
ment. Summarizing the whole situation
the report states that "buildings are
still mainly poor, teachers are still
mainly untrained, financial support is
still inadequate, and supervision is
And the colleges and University,
running true to form, are in about a
similar situation. The need for more
adequate physical equipment has been
repeatedly emphasized, and demon
strated. The writer's situation, as
already described, demonstrates it.
(I have just returned from lunch,
where I waited forty minutes for the f
"first shift" to complete their meal The 1914 report showed the Ath
in order that I might sat.) But there letic Association to be in debt over
is no use to djrell on the need fortf
physical equipment that is true
throughout the several institutions
of the State. That it will take all
that has been asked for to meet this
situation, no one who is familiar
with the situation has questioned.
But physic! equipment is not all.
It costs money to do work of a uni
versity grade. It is little difficult
to get men competent to teach men
in the fourth year of high school, or
the first year in college, but it is
expensive to provide the instruction, i
the library, and laboratory facilities
that are requisite for undergraduate
work, which does not take into con-
sideration the still greater expense j

PAUL SHORY MAY GIVE
1821 MIIR LECTURES
Dr- hry " Eminent Authority
on Philosophy and the Latin
an1 Greek Classic.
An invitation has been given to
Dr- Paul Shory, of the University of
Chicago, to deliver tne iviciNair lec-,
tures for 1921, to be given some,
Good in Plato's Republic," "The Odes
and Epodes of Horace," and others
Dr. Shory has become important in
the philosophical classes of the world.
The John Calvin McNair lecture
fund was established by the will of
Mr. McNair, of the class of 1849.
It became available in 1906 and in
terest therefrom rendered it possible
to begin the lectures in 1908. Under
the will the object of the lectures
"shall be to show the mutual bear
ing of science and religion upon'each
other and to prove the existence of
attributes (as far as may be) of
God from nature." The lectures be
ginning in 1908 have been delivered
by some of the greatest authorities
on subjects of the kind in America.
In 1908 the lectures were first de
livered by Prof. Francis H. Smith,
of the University of Virgina. Then
followed in 1909 President Francis
Landey Patton of Princeton Theo
logical Seminary; in 1910 by David
Starr Jordan; in 1911 by Prof. Henry
Van Dyke; in 1912 by President
Twining Hadley, of Yale University;
in 1913 by Prof. Francis G. Peabody;
in 1914 by Prof. George Edgar Vin
cent; in 1915 by Prof. John Dewey;
in 1916 by Dean Frederick J. E.
Woodbridge, of Columbia University;
in 1917 by Prof. Hugh Black; and
in 1918 by Prof. Shailer Mathews.
Last year the McNair lectures were
delivered by Prof. Edwin Grant Conk
lin. Now in 1921 Dr. Paul Shory,
of the University of Chicago, will give

resent Carolina in First
Debate of Year.
DEBATE HERE JANUARY 22
In the preliminary for the Penn
sylvania debate which was held Fri
day night, C. T. Boyd, C. D. Beers,
and T. C. Taylor were selected to
represent Carolina in this forensic
contest. These debaters will meet
Pennsylvania here in Gerrard Hall
Eight debaters contested for places
on the team. In addition to the suc
cessful contestants, the speakers were
as follows: L. W. Jarman, C. C.
Poindexter. V. V. Young. M. B
formate and C J Wil-
Prescott . and C. J . Wil
liams. The judges for the contests
were Profs. W. W. Pierson, Jr.,
tfFrank P. Graham, and George M.
The query for the debate is as
'follows: "Resolved, That a federal
law should be passed rigidly exclud
ing immigrants for a period of the
next two years." This year the
Pennsylvania team will come here
for the final contest which will be
held Saturday night, January 22.
In the debate this year the teams
will be composed of three debaters
instead of two, as formerly. None
of the three Carolina men are inex
perienced in this kind of work. C.
T. Boyd and T. C. Taylor won their
N. C.'s in 1919 and 1920, respective
ly, and C. D. Beers has had consider
able experience in literary society
Carolina has held a number of de
bates with Pennsylvania in the past,
and although Pennsylvania is a much
larger university, Carolina has won
an almost unbroken string of vic
tories. In attaining this enviable
record, Carolina has debated Penn
sylvania six times, winning five and
losing only one.
The first debate was held in 1907
when P. M. Williams and T. W.
Andrews, advocating the reduction of
tariff, lost to Pennsylvania.
In 1908, J. ,W. Umstead, Jr., and
K. D. Battle defeated Pennsylvania,
defending the negative side of the
following query: "Resolved, That
the pooling of interstate traffic and
rates should be legalized."
Another victory was won in 1909
when Eugene C. Barnette, Carolina's
present missionary in China, and E.
M. Highsmith, opposing an inherit
ance tax, defeated the Quakers.
W. F. Taylor and C. L. Williams,
advocating the establishment of a
central bank by the United States,
added another link to Carolina's
chain of victories.
In 1912 F. P. Barker and C. R.
Wharton won another victory de
fending the negative side of the
query, "Resolved, That all forest and
mineral possessions of the United
States should be retained by the

by a snappy and good-naturedly

required work to be eligible, played
forward and with Hanby proved the
shining lights for the varsity. His
playing has improved a good bit since
last year and he bids fair to better
his brother's record.
"Monk" McDonald, at the other
forward, was fast as ever and sure
with his baskets.
The last half by agreement ran
ten minutes longer than usual in
order to give some of the "subs" a
chance to "strut their stuff."
For the Freshmen, Ambler, at
guard and center, showed flashes of
exceptional playing and Purser was
very good, ringing four of his team's

PHI ASSEMBLY BETS
DOWN TO WORK WITH
Assembly Votes in Affirmative for
' Proposed Bill to Restrict Immi
gration for Two Years.
TO INSTALL NEW OFFICERS
At its first session of the winter
term the Phi. society debated the
most important question before the
American public today the immi
gration problem, the solution of
which the present Congress is con
fronted with, and passed by a vote
of 50 for to 14 against the bill en
titled, "Resolved, That a Federal law
be passed rigidly restricting immigra
tion to the United States for a period
of two years." The query is inter
preted as meaning the barring of
"all immigrants except students,
tourists, foreign officials, and mem
bers of the immediate family of some
person already a resident of the Unit
M. B. Prescott, speaking in favor
of the bill, declared that the con
gested conditions prevailing in the
large cities of the north were caused
by a too rapid influx of immigrants
to the United States. "Too many
immigrants retard our reconstruction
rather than aid it. Many of the
immigrants are radicals who aim to
strike at the foundations of our
government. You can't select the
good and the bad immigrants. Fur
thermore, the preponderance of
crime at the present in the larger
cities of America is caused by the
congested conditions made possible
by a too rapid influx of immigrants,"
declared Mr. Prescott. "There are
about 2,000,000 unemployed labor
ers in America now. We don't need
any labor. We all know the attend
ant evils caused by the loafers and
the unemployed. To pass this law
would be fair to the immigrants and
to the American laborer who needs
our protection," argued Mr. Prescott.
Phillip Hettleman predicts pros
perity for the country after a lapse
of about two years in which time
we will recover from the evil effects
of the late war, and with prosperity
he predicts a greater demand for
enicient laDorers. - ii you cion t give
the American laborer competition,
his efficiency will never be increased
and he will always be an unskilled
laborer, to the detriment of indus
try," declared Mr. Hettleman. He
asks his opponents to consider, be
fore they say that all immigrants
are undesirable and seek to tear
down American institutions, Dr.
Weil who came to this country as an
immigrant many years ago, and who
has delivered lectures on American
citizenship before student audiences
in this very University.
