Virginians Smothered On First Trip To Hill
FEBRUARY ISSUE OF
Member of English '21 Cla Pro
duce Magazine Which Shows
New Vitality in Education.
ARTICLES WELL WRITTEN
. (By J. H. Hanford)
- The February issue of the Maga
zine, a special number produced by
the members of English 21, bears
witness to an increasing maturity
observable everywhere in the liter
ary, dramatic, and journalistic activi
ties of the University. This is not a
make-believe publication but a real
one, the product of that spirit of
vital co-operation between faculty
and student which shows that this
institution is beginning to realize it
self as a term of what Burke calls
the great partnership of civilization.
In its character as the semi-official
publication of a college class, the
present issue differs only formally
from others. It is essentially student
work appealing to student interests,
but it suggests the fact that a con
tact has been established between
"subjects" in general and their use.
The professor is learning to project
his knowledge, the student is learn
ing to tap the reservoir of intellect
ual supplies afforded by his courses.
It would be difficult to point to a

Columbia Sophomores Outwitted by
.... Opponents Strategy Police
Reserves Called Out.
Newark, N. J., Feb. 24. When the
sophomore and freshman of Colum
bia waged their annual interclass
fight here today the police reserves
were called out to quell the mob
spirit. The sophomores were trying
to prevent the freshmen from holding
their class banquet, and the latter
were attempting to keep them off.
The freshmen won through a flank
ing movement and the feast came
off as scheduled at the Robert Treat
Place Kept Secret
The freshmen Dinner Committee
kept the date and place secret until
Tuesday. Then they telephoned or
sent special messengers to the class
with the news. Strict orders were
given to keep it away from the wary
sophomores. They were told to get
to Newark by 3:00 a. m. Thursday
morning, and by that time a ma
jority of them were at the hotel.
By five o'clock the sophomores had
found the freshies retreat and sur
rounded the building. Then they
posted scouts at all railway and
trolley terminals to capture the fresh
men who had not arrived.
The freshies who arrived late did
not know of this stratagem on the
part of the sophs, and were easily
captured and placed in a large loft.
Those in the hotel sent out scouts
to warn the late arrivals. Some of
these scouting parties were recog
nized and a battle royal was staged
in Military Park. One freshman dis
guised as a street cleaner made
his escape to New York, to warn his
classmates not to get off the trains
at the terminals, but at street stops.
Crawl Over Roofs
A crowd of forty freshmen col
lected at Harrison street and were
led through alleys and finally over
several roofs to the back of the hotel,
by their would-be street cleaner
classmate. The sophomores did not
see this flanking movement until too
late to check it, and then gave up
the fight. They held their prisoners
until the last part of the dinner,
letting them arrive in time for the
desert and speeches.
Policemen did not realize that it
was merely a college boy affair, and
when the fight in Military Park com
menced, sent in a call for the re
serves. They tried to make the
sophomores give up their prisoners,
but when it was explained that it
was "all in fun," they retired to the
sidelines. The second year men
managed to catch only one of the
first year's Dinner Committee men,
and he was the chairman of that
CO-EDS DROP TWO GAMES
ON INITIAL TRIP.
Making their initial trip of
the season Carolina's first co
ed basketball team was unsuc
cessful from the point of the
number of games won.
Friday night the Co-eds were
defeated by Lenoir college 26
to 13. The game was played
with the one line ruling, by
which only the centers were
allowed to play all over the
court. At the end of the first
half the score stood 13 to 13,
but during the second period
the Co-eds were unable to lo
cate the basket, while the Le
noir quinto ran wild and piled
up 13 additional points.
The Co-eds 'lost again Sat
urday night to the Charlotte
Y. W. C. A. in a nip and tuck
game. The score was 27 to 16.
This game was played under
the three line rule, and Miss
Batts acted' as the additional
center. The splendid fighting
spirit of the team was the sub
ject of much praise and com
ment. Misses Bradshaw, Gattis,
Pickard, Bacon, Lay, Batts and
Williams composed the party
that made the trip. Miss Bacon
is team manager.
Plans are now under way for
a game with the Trinity Co

GTM FOR VIRGINIA GAME
First Appearance of Blue and Gold
on Local Court Draws Record
Nearly eleven hundred spectators
witnessed Virginia's overwhelming
defeat at the hands of Carolina Sat
urday night in Bynum gymnasium.
It was a record crowd, assembled for
a record game. For the first time
in history a Virginia quint was to
be seen in action on the local court.
And the game was certainly all that
could be wished for; the fastest seen
here in some seasons, and in many
respects the best played.
Carolina put up her characteris
tically excellent exhibition of pass
ing and shooting, and Virginia play
ed, in many respects, a better game
than the score indicated, but from
the start there was never any doubt
as to the superiority of the Blue and
The game was scheduled for 8:00
o'clock, but by 6:45 every available
inch of unreserved seating space was
taken, and the crowd had just begun
By 7:30 even the reserved areas
were occupied and the crowds be
gan to overflow to perches up among
the rafters, to precarious box seats
on the punching bag frames, and to
the cliff dweller's nooks in the gal
lery supports. Twenty minutes be
fore the game there was no less than
20 hopefuls grouped around the play
ers' and officials' benches on the
vain assumption that they might find
port of refuge between the knees
of some benevolent there.
Two males, artfully attired in
feminine attire, were the 'only mor-

Dr. W. W. Pierson Talks on "The
Truth in History" Refresh
ments Are Served.
In the regular monthly meeting of
the Graduate Club held last Friday
evening in Peabody building Dr. Wil
liam W. Piersoti gave a short talk on
"The Truth in History."
"We are historians. Histories are
in everv field of knowledge, and
' there is even a history of history.
! History is a standard bearer of pa
triotism, justification of successful
' causes and vindication of unsuccess
ful causes; it is the soul of national

"The research student in history is

NOW HOLDING ATHLETIC
Big Southern Conference Will Prob
ably Be Organized Grew Out
of December Meeting.
Dr. Charles S. Mangum and Prof.
A. H. Patterson, members of the fac
ulty committee on athletics, left last
week for Atlanta, Ga., to attend a
meeting of Southern colleges and
universities as representatives of the
University, the purpose of the meet
ing being to organize a southern
The proposed conference, which
will probably be modelled after
the western conference composed of
ten universities of the mid-western
states of Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota,
Michigan, Ohio and Illinois, is an
outgrowth of the athletic conference
of southern state universities, com
posed of Virginia, South and North
Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee, to
gether with most of the larger insti
tutions of the S. I. A. A. i
At the December meeting held in
Gainesville, Fla., preliminary steps
were taken for the formation of a
new athletic conference, composed
of most of the larger institutions all
the way from Maryland to New
Orleans. Other institutions have
been invited to the Atlanta meeting
and it is probable that the most im
portant athletic group the south has
ever known will be born at this
meeting. Maryland, Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Clemson,
Georgia, Georgia Tech., Alabama,
Auburn, Tennessee, Mississippi, A.
and M., Louisiana State and Tulane
were markedly in favor of the organ
ization of the new body then, so that
the move will no doubt have the un
qualified support of every institution
represented at the meeting. '
The chief principles upon which
kthe conference will be probably
foundec include the one-year rule
for first year men, prohibition . on
money for summer baseball, the set
tlement by each institution of its
own cases, the playing of several in
stitutions in the conference by each

HIGH SCHOOLS FIGHT
FOR BASKET HONORS
All Schools Have Been Eliminated
in Fight for Basket Ball Cham
pionship Except Nineteen.
Greater interest is being shown!
this year in the high school basket-
ball contests than ever before in the I
history of the contests which were
started seven years ago. Out of 44
teams entering the contests this win
ter, all but nine teams in the west
and 10 teams in the east have been
eliminated to date according to re
ports received by Mr. E. R. Rankin
who is in charge of the contest.
There has been a nip and tuck
race in the west during the past week
with the teams of Dixie, Leaksville,
Greensboro, Charlotte, Lexington,
Asheville, Candler, Belmont Bad
Churchland outshining by far their
competitors in every match. From
reports it looks as if the race in the
east is to be mainly between teams
of the Durham, Chapel Hill, New
Bern, Sanford and Fremont high
schools. Wilmington High School,
last year's champion, was defeated
in a hotly contested match by the
Fremont team, the score being 22-20.
The Chapel Hill, Belhaven, and Ashe
ville teams took great delight in pil
ing up large scores in thei'- recent
matches, Chapel Hill defeating Rocky

Many Women Have Already Applied
for Rooms in the Coming Sum
Prospects indicate that the 34th
session of the University Summer
School, which will hold for six weeks
as formerly, beginning June 21st,
and ending August 14th, will be a
very successful one. The secretary
announced that she has received
more applications for rooms up to
the present time than in any like
period before. All of the rooms of
Vance, Battle and Pettigrew are
taken and many more besides.
Although Mr. N. W. Walker is at
Harvard on a leave of absence, he
will have charge of the summer
school as here-to-fore, and is now
engaging his instructors. He is se
curing the very best instructors for
this work, and intends to give each
department personal attention.
Every member of the teaching
staff in the School of Education will
remain for service in the Summer
school rather than go elsewhere.
They do this for the purpose of
working for and keeping in touch
with the schools of North Carolina,
for whom they are working continu
ally. Every line of work in both gram
mar and high schools, and also in
supervision and administration will
be covered by trained experts who
have been carefully selected with
reference to immediate needs in
North Carolina schools.
OLD DOMINION QUINT REGISTERS
ONLY FOUR FIELD
FOUGHT CONTEST IN GYMNASIUM
Husky Virginians Are Swept Off Their Feet and Lose by Score
of 43 to 12 Gymnasium Is Packed to Roof Captain
Shepherd Leads in Field Goals. -
(By C. J. PARKER, Jr.)
Playing a passing and shooting game that virtually swept their op
ponents off their feet Carolina's Flying Quint overwhelmed the husky Vir
ginians Saturday night in Bynum Gymnasium 43 to 12. A crowd of over
1,050, the largest on record, thronged the gym on this first appearance of
a Virginia quint on the local court.
The game was one of the fastest ever witnessed here, and during the
last half one of the roughest. The Virginians were absolutely bewildered
by Carolina's initial burst of speed, and were unable to register a single
point during the first seven minutes of play, during which the Flying Quint
was rolling up no less than nine.
Carolina played the entire game without a substitution, while Virginia,
during the last half, ran in practically a new team in a vain effort to stop
the Tar Heel drive.
As in the Trinity game the team worked together like clock work, and
no individual star is to be named, but Captain Shepherd led his team
mates in the number of field goals scored, and Carmichael distinguished
himself by making good nine foul shots out of eleven tries.
