LARGE AUDIENCE PLEASED

day night, February 15th, classical
selections from a great number of
the world's most famous composers
were played in a most skillful and
A1thhK tired nt! nnd -with tn -
grime of travel still upon them be-
cause of lack of time to prepare for
their performance because of the de-
railment of a box car on the rail-
road leading from University Station
to Carrboro, the members of the
Quartet nevertheless rendered a most
excellent program if the applause
from the audience was any criterion.
'1 The Letz Quartet was secured
through the efforts of the Depart
ment . of Music. . They, however,
could not have been secured were
it not for the fact that the Quaret
had to lay over one day and night in
Greensboro. The Music Department
considers itself very fortunate in
securing such a skillful Quartet and
from the reception the Quartet re
ceived it appears that they were ap
preciated. The members of the Quartet were :
Hans Letz, who played first violin;
Sandor Harmati, second violin; Ed
ward Kreimer, viola and Lajos Skuk,
The program was supplemented by
three selections rendered as encores.
The second part of the program was '
the best received, although the whole
program was pleasing throughout.
Variations on "Death and the
Maiden," was with the last selection
the best received of all. One encore ' ox Education the work in North Car
was given at the end of the second j olma will be carried on by Chester

gave the facts as to the sanitary con

were very unsanitary, especially the

the janitor phase. .
It was decided at the meeting that

The regular German club , rules
will be strictly enforced and the

be required to stand on the side lines
to allow the dancing, in the center
of the floor. " The moral support of
the campus is solicited by the Grail,
and a large attendance is expected.
.It has been suggested that in the
future the dances be divided between
the three upper classes and the pro
f essional schools that is that the stu
dent body be divided so that there
will be a smaller crowd to allow bet
ter dancing. Although no definite
conclusion has been reached the
Order is considering the change.
Also it is contemplated that the dance
will be given the proceeds to go to
help make up the deficit of the Y. M.

dance will be given as those in the

NEW LIGHT ON ROBBERY
Campus Night Watchman Believes
i That One of Dormitory Thieves
Wal i Woman..
"One of the robbers who went in
the dormitories before Christmas
and stole fmany valuable articles, I
believe' was ' a woman," said Night
watchman! "Whjtakeri ;
'' "The one ' 1 saw , -about twelve
o'clock of the night of the robbery i
in the secretary's room of the Y. M.
C. A., looked .like a woman aboirt
nineteen; . I don't believe any man
has as fair a complexion as the per
son 1 saw, even tnougn sne aian i
wear a dress. The person's hair
could not be seen for a large cap
pulled over i;he'''f orehead and down
to the neck."!, .w, :,.-.,.
Answering the question of whether
the person looked like a roughneck
the nightwatchman said, "No, he
looked young and -unprofessional."
Another phase of the robbery was
also brought in by Mr. Whitaker. The
nightwatchman of the mills at Carr
boro was confronted, , about . eleven
thirty of the night of the robbery
by a young person who wanted to
know where the University was, how
its buildings, .were situated, and what
were the colors of t?ie buildings.
Mr. Douglas, who was the Carrboro
nightwatchman, informed him, think
ing that the man was only a half
drunk college student who had his
way. .But as soon as tne man naa
gone a little ways Mr. Douglas no
ticed that he was joined by two com
panions ..on foot. .
As against the supposition that the
burglars came in a Ford, Mr. Whit
aker said that he believed the per
sons were bn-foot. !
FATHERLY TALKS TO
'The History of the World is a His
tory of Blunders," Says Eco
Walter J. Matherly, professor in
the School of Commerce, speaking
in-chapel last Monday morning, Feb
ruary 14, said in part: "The history
of the WQJ'ld is, a history of blund
ers. . Throughout the centuries hu
man beings have been incompetent.
We have always been and "are still
guilty of inefficiency. Most of us
are from 50 to .75 per cent inef
ficient.,:. . . . '. '
"We have always with us the high
cost of inefficiency. ' To reduce the
high cost of living is to reduce the
high cost of inefficiency. ' ' '
"There are four things the matter
with , the country today. .They are:
Government inefficiency, social in
efficiency, industrial inefficiency,
personal' ' inefficiency.
"As part of personal inefficiency
is mental .inefficiency. It is this that
most concerns.. us here at the Uni
versity. Another part of personal
inefficiency is physical inefficiency.
This was brought to our attention
by the draft law. It was found that
most of the young men of America
are physically . inefficient. ,
"How are we to remedy this?"
1. By political enlightenment,
and by intelligent citizenship.
2. Social consciousness. We need
to believe and think in social terms.
3. In industry we must have co
operation. 4. ' A definite objective in life.

BREAK LONG WINNING ;
- STREAK OF DURHAM T
University" Quint Beats Durham
Team With Record of 21
HELD LEAD THROUGHOUT
After a rest of f oiir days,; partly
getting over the effects of the strenu
ous northern trip, Carolina's basket
ball quint broke Durham Y. M. C. A.'s
long winning streak of 21 consecu
tive victories in Bynum gymnasium
Monday night, winning from the fast
Bull city team by the score of 44-25. -
Owing to the absence of Liipfert
from the line up, .who . is suffering
from a sprained ankle, Carmichael
was shifted to, center for the game,
Shepard assuming his position1, and
Erwin taking guard in Shepard's
place. The shifted line-up exhibited
enough speed and team work to com
pletely outclass the visiting quint in
every phase of the game, and had
an easy time in winning.
Carolina took the lead in the first
few minutes of play when McDonald
shot a pretty court goal that started
a scoring spurt for Carolina. Dur
ham's floor work and passing vied
with Carolina in the early stages
but the Carolina quint shot more
accurately and followed the ball bet
ter. There were so many foul3 call
ed that victory appeared, to be going
to the team that shot more foul
goals. Carmichael for Carolina and
Mangum for Durham both made
eleven foul shot3 good in the first
half. McDonald led the court scor
ing, registering three pretty shots,
with Shepard, Carmichael, and Han
by, adding one each.
In the second period Carolina ran
wild, completely bewildering the Y.
M. C. A. . team with cleverness in
passing and shooting, and giving an
exhibition of almost perfect floor
work. Both teams took longer shots
but Carolina had it all over Dur
ham, Carmichael, Hanby, and Shep
ard, all registering several nice long
goals. , Mangum, star Durham for
ward, who took center when Knight
retired from the game, after making
three nice shots in the first half, was
able to cage only one in the final
period. His playing at center, how
ever,, was fast and aggressive. ... ,
; Carolina plays Davidson here to
night, and will meet North Carolina
State here tomorrow night."
