STATE QUENT SNOWED
West Raleigh Baketeer Completely
Bewildered by Fast Floor Work
of Carolina Five.
TEAM AS A WHOLE STARS
(By C. J. PARKER, Jr.)
Lost, completely baffled, by the
dazzling and deadly exact shooting
and passing of the Carolina bas
keteers, the State College quint met
Saturday night with one of the most
disastrous defeats in the history of
her state basketball career. The
score was 62 to 10, and is a fair
indication of the vastly superior
work of the Blue and White quint
over that of the visitors.
From the first minute of play there
was never any doubt as to the out
come. The ball had been in action
less than half a minute when Captain
Shepherd broke the ice with a pretty
goal from the field, and from then
on it became a task of no small pro
portion for the score keepers to keep
the correct count posted. At the
end of three minutes of play the
score stood 5 to 0 for Carolina, when
Deal erased the State goose egg with
spectacular goal from mid-floor. The
closest State ever got to Coach
Boye's machine was toward the mid
die of the first half when the score
for a moment stood at 13 to 6.
The passing of the Carolina five
was a source of complete mystifica
tion to the West Raleigh quint," who
often caught themselves in a state
of suspended animation vainly en
deavoring to locate the ball. Caro
lina experienced no difficulty in work
ing the ball under the goal, and her
shots were made with deadly ac
curacy. Several long shots were also
registered, showing up the excellence
of the team in a phase of the game
not hitherto practiced.
But two fouls were called on Car
olina during the entire contest, while
State suffered no less than 13 pen
alties. Three of State's four field
goals were the result of long floor
shots, for she was, able but once to
work the ball under the basket for
a close goal. The score at the end
of the first half stood 26 to 6.
During the second half the Blue

IN LISTLESS GAME
Carolina Quint Exhibits Excellent
Form Davidson Does Good
Guarding and Passing.
Carolina defeated Davidson Fri
day night in a slow and listless game
37 to 20.
Davidson's close guarding and ae-
rurnt.B Inner distance passing came
nearer breaking up Carolina's far
famed "five man. attack" than any
other team that has been here this
For the first ten minutes the hon
ors of the game were very evenly di
vided, but by a burst of speed Caro
lina drew away to a 19 to 10 lead at
the end of the first half.
During the second half Captain
Shepherd's quint speeded up and dis
played some of the form shown on
the northern trip, but as a whole
the Blue and White were off on their
shooting and not up -to their usual
form in passing.
Carmichael, Hanby and Shepherd
played well for Carolina, while Rob
erta and J. Schenck led the attack
for Davidson- The line-up:

GETTING THE NEWS
TD THE CAMPUS IS
A GOOD SIZED JOB
Tar Heel This Year Well Organized
and Edited Like Large
HARD WORK IS REQUIRED
(By J. G. GULICK)
The daily newspapers have noth
ing on The Tar Heel in the way of
late working hours and last minute
rushes. The strenuous, nerve-racking
toil, which is synonymous with
newspaper work, is not limited to
the workers on daily newspapers.
For The Tar Heel is edited on a new
basis this year.
There is one place on the campus
.where work is going in the small,
early morning hours while the rest
of the campus sleeps. There is a
light burning in one place when all
the lights in the dormitory rooms
have disappeared. This place is the
modest headquarters of The Tar
Heel fat the northeastern corner of
the Y. M. C. A. building. Here the
managing editor with the editor-in-chief
and several reporters each
week "make-up" The Tar Heel. The
reporters work all during the week
and do not usually have so much
work to do at one certain time.
Most of them, while giving much
time to the paper, are able to dis
tribute their work, but it is the man
aging editor who gives up four
nights, four perfectly good nights out
of seven, to go to the office and
made up The Tar eel. On Friday
and Monday the first materials for
the Tuesday and Friday issues, re
spectively, is turned in. This is ed
ited and heads are written by the
managing editor who also makes up
the paper. "After the last material
is turned in at a late hour on these i
nights, it is all put into proper shape '
and mailed to the. printer. I
But the biggest part of the work !

TENNIS VARSITY HULL
HAVE STIFF SCHEDULE
Teammates of ' Captain Jernigan
Soon to Be Chosen by
This Spring will see the most in-;
teresting tennis season the Univer-,
sity nas naa m recent years, man- j
ager Gardner has already started
men to work on the courts and they j
will be in good condition by the time j
the tennis season arrives. Several j
tentative matches are under way.
: xiic Letting luuauijr cm-wunuci- j
! ed this Spring are those of the Uni
versity of Virginia, University of
Maryland, V. M. I., Washington andj
Lee and the teams of the different,
State colleges. The University of!
Michigan has requested a place on
the tennis schedule but owing to the
high guarantee asked by that insti
tution Manager Gardner will hardly
be able to accept their invitation for
a match. The Michigan team desir
ed matches with several Southern
institutions in order to allow it to
successfully undertake a trip South.
Only one member of the varsity
has been chosen to date. E. C.
Jernigan won the captaincy of the
team by winning out over all-comers
in a competitive tournament held
last Fall. The rest of the tourna
ment which was delayed last Fall will
be held some time in the near future
and a double tournament will prob
ably be gotten under way also. The
other members of the varsity team
will be probably from the following
men who have shown up best in prac
tice: Waverly Hester, Wood Wil
liams, last year's captain ; Wade Gard
ner, Tommy Hawkins, Jess Irvin,
Hume Bordin, Frank Spruill and
Tommy J. Wilson. Allan R. Ander
son, formerly South Atlantic Cham
pion, will probably coach the team.
There has been a great deal of
tennis activity among the members
of the faculty this month. This
activity promises to last during the
entire Spring, many members of the
faculty daily frequenting the faculty
courts having expressed their en
thusiasm in the sport. The faculty
members who have become ardent
racketers are: Messrs. Winston,
Chambers, George, Hibbard, Lasley,
Henderson, Walker, Daggett, Leavitt,
Hanford, A. W. Hobbs, Bullitt, and
LECTURES DN PLATO
ARE NOT ATTENDED
BY LARGE AUDIENCES
Paul Shorey, of University of Chi
cago, Delivers Annual Lectures -Composing
SUBJECT IS NOT FAMILIAR
"Plato's Relation to the Religious
Problem" was the general topic of
the series of the McNair lectures
which were delivered Friday, Satur
day and Sunday nights by Dr. Paul
Shorey, of the University of Chicago.
Dr. Shorey is the head of the depart
ment of Greek at the University of
Chicago, and is one of the foremost
scholars in his field, as well as an
author and speaker.
The lectures this year failed to
draw crowds. Although the speaker
is a distinguished scholar, his lec
tures were of a type that did not at
tract large crowds. A large part of
each lecture was composed of quo
tations from Greek scholars with
which the average student was net
familiar, and the subjects were treat
ed in such a way that they did ap
peal to most of the students.
The speaker took as his subject
for the Friday lecture "Plato and the
Irreligion of Pseudo-Science." In
this lecture he presented Plato's at
titude toward the essential religious
I problems of his day. He gave con
siderable time to Plato's satire on
the pseudo-scientists and showed
that Plato's skeptical attitude was
fundamentally right for his day. He
spoke of Plato's challenge to Ma
terialism and also made the point
that no progress has been made since
Plato in explaining the fundamental
fact of the mind. He gave numerous
quotations from Plato and other
scholars to illustrate his points,
; "Plato and Natural Theology" was
the subject of Dr. Shorey's second
lecture. "A parallel could be drawn
between Platoism and Christianity,"
said Dr. Shorey. "Plato did not be"
lieve that myths were of value, but
he would rather have men believe in j ship of the present senior class ex
myths than to think that the world ! pect to enter some college. Present

HILL FOR FEW DAYS
Talks to the Freshmen in Chapel
About Some of His Experi
Mr. John P. Washburn, president
of the class of '20, and now with The
National City Bank of New York,
was on the Hill this week-end. Mr.
Washburn is on his way from Eng
land to China, and by a request he
consented to talk to the Freshmen
for a few minutes in Chapel about
some of his experiences abroad.
"When I landed in Liverpool, Eng
land, on August 6, 1920, it was
raining and the docks were the
dirtiest places that I have ever seen.
The people, too, were ugly" Ac
cording to Mr. Washburn, the mills
of England have had to close down
because they have been unable to
secure raw supplies from the United
States on long term credit. "The
day before I left London," he said,
"I saw a parade of 60,000 laborers
who were unable to obtain work.
According to the statistics that they
compiled, there are 7 out of every
100 out of employment."
Mr. Washburn then told of some
of the differences between the cus
toms in England and those in
America. He told of meeting
"Shorty" Spruil of the class of '20,
who is now at Oxford College in
England,' and who is trying to get
accustomed to the customs over
there. "They have a different mode
of dress for almost every hour of
the day, and every evening they
blossom out in full dress or tuxedos.

JOIN FIGHT TO HELP
COLLEGES GET MONEY
High Schools Asked by Central Com'
mittee to Send Petitions to
EACH CLASS IN THE FIGHT
The Greater University Student
Committee of which 'John H. Kerr is
the chairman during the past few
weeks took steps looking to the align
ment of the high schools of the State
with the colleges in the fight for
larger appropriations for the State's
higher institutions of learning. Re
sults of these steps have not yet been
ascertained but is certain that a great
deal of good will be accomplished
by the high schools.
Taking the recent action of the
Senior Class of the Henderson high
school as a working model, the Cen
tral Committee of the Colleges had
printed in circular form a letter set
ting forth the action of the Hender
son school and telling in just what
way similar action on the part of
other schools would help the cause
of higher education and sent a copy
of it to every senior in every high
school in the State.
Students in the Henderson high
school, on their own initiative sent
the following petition to the legisla
tors from Vance county:
"The question of the educational
fund for the colleges of North Caro
lina is probably the paramount issue
facing the Legislature now in session.
In view of this may we not submit
for your attention a few facts con
cerning conditions existing in the
Henderson high school?
"The class which graduated from
the school in June, 1920, was com-
posed of fifteen members. The
class which will graduate in June,
1921, has as its enrollment thirty
two, or an increase of 100 per cent.
"By a canvass taken at the begin
ning of this school year it was found
that practically the entire member-
part of them will ' find it necessary

To Take Definite Action on Sanitary
Conditions and to Send Repre
sentatives to Conference.
. At a meeting of the Campus Cab
inet last Tuesday evening four
things of importance came up for
discussion. On each of these definite
plans were talked of, but in two of
them no definite action was taken.
The question as to whether the
University should send men. to the
Massachusetts Institute of Technol
ogy Convention of Undergraduate
Government was discussed, and a
vote showed that the Campus Cab
inet was in favor of Carolina's send
ing four delegates.
Next, the sanitary conditions on
the campus were discussed, and the
result of this was the calling of a
meeting last Tuesday of the Cabinet,
Student Council, and dormitory man
agers to make plans for better sani
tation. A committee was appointed
at this meeting to make further in
vestigation and report at a meeting
to be held later.
For the third matter, the cabinet
considered the advisability of having
a conference of the state's colleges
to meet at Chapel Hill and discuss
undergraduate government. This
conference would be much on the
same line as the one to be held at
M. I. T. Plans were not made at
this meeting but will be taken up at
the next meeting.
A possibility of organizing an in-tra-State
High School Association
also came in for discussion. The
purpose of this association would be
to have delegates from all the high
schools come to Chapel Hill each
spring for a conference. The prac
tice of the University now m hold
ing high school debates and athletic
contests would also be combined in
the association. The association
would be under the direction of Mr.
Rankin, and the advantage would
accrue of having all intra-school mat
ters under one management. Defin
ite action will be taken on this mat
ter at a later date.

The first Tar Heel was introduced
as an answer to a crying need of a
medium, apart from the literary Mag
azine, for the publication of general
news and for the expression of the
opinion of the student on college
topics. Before that time the Uni

following foreword: "The growing

which such a need could be supplied,

of editors (chief and five subs), and
a business manager."

issue of the first volume of The Tar
