BY DEMOCRATIC SPIRIT
No Hazing, No Bad Spirit Between
Fraternity Men and Non
ALL STUDENTS EQUAL
In spite of the fact that the en
rollment of The University of North
Carolina exceeds the thirteen hun
dred mark and in spite of the exist
ence of chapters of fifteen national
fraternities, several local petitioning
clubs, and more than a hundred other
organizations of various types or
perhaps it can be said, because of
these facts the University of North
Carolina is one of the most demo
cratic institutions in the state.
The situation is truly remarkable.
The student body is composed, of
every type of man : book worms,
idlers, the wealthy, the poor, the
ambitious, the lazy, the bright, the
dull. And yet the body is bound to
gether by a strand of democracy
that calls every man a gentleman
until he proves himself otherwise and
every man equal. It is the spirit of
the campus a spirit that has grown
out of years of successful student
government, of years of athletic his
tory, and of years back yonder when
hazing was the order of the day,
and when there existed always a
pitched battle between the different
factions of the University, between
the non-fraternity element and the
Today every Carolina man speaks
to every other Carolina man whom
he meets on the campus or on the
streets. He does not have to know
his name nor he does not have to
be a personal acquaintance or a class
mate, but it comes natural to a Car
olina student to say "Howdy," or
"Good Morning, Gentlemen," to his
fellow students. It is a condition
that the freshmen adjust themselves
to every year, and when they leave
Carolina the custom has becomp a
habit, a fortunate and a happy habit.
In fact, this speaking-to-everybody
custom, has at last marked itself
down as a tradition of the Carolina
CampUS, anH it io one uf . mnet
I remember the first time I visit
ed the University, before I enrolled
as a student here. I was walking
across the campus and was surprised
to have all the students passing speak
to me as if they had known me for
years, when, as a matter of fact, I
was a total stranger to them. I
latter asked a student from my
home town about this and asked if
I resembled a student so closely that
they thought they were speaking to
some one they knew.
He laughed. "Oh, that is simply
the way Carolina works," he said.
"It is what comes out of a very gen
erous democracy that exists here."
Perhaps one of the first things
that makes Carolina marked as an

Final arrangements have been
and gentlemen visitors have been
mailed out, and everything prepared
for the annual spring dances, which
take place Wednesday and Thursday,
June 15th and 16th, immediately
following the commencement exer
cises, according to "Billy" Carmi
chael, Commencement Ball Manager.
A few days ago cards were dis
tributed about the campus, request
ing those who intend to attend the
dances to sign and return to the Ball
Manager, for the purpose of de
termining approximately how many
will be able to buy tickets for the
dances, in order to make the prices
as low as possible. This system of
co-operation points to a success,-and
every indication is that 'the price of
the dances will be considerably lower
than usual. If a profit is made the
proceeds will go to the German Club
instead of to the commencement :

EACH MAKE A REPORT
The Intercollegiate Conference on
undergraduate government held at
Massachusetts Institute of Technol
ogy April 15th and 16th, was a suc
cess in every way. One hundred and
fifty-six delegates met and discussed
the most important phases of under
graduate government as represented
by thirty-nine of the leading colleges
of the country. .
Through the efforts of Dean Brad-
shaw and donations from several
prominent alumni Carolina sent four
delegates to the convention, namely,
B. B. Lnpfert representing athletics:
T. C. Taylor, student eovernment:
W. A. Royall, dramatics and music
clubs, and D. L. Grant. Dublicatinns.
At the beginning of the confer
ence Carolina, with the exception of
one man form Virginia, was the Only
Southern college represented which
naturally placed a great responsibil
ity upon her, for she had to repre
sent not only Carolina, but South
ern colleges in general.
The first day the delegates were
entertained royally with luncheon
and dinner in the fraternity houses,
and with conferences and a formal
dance that evening. Student govern
ment, college publications, and col
lege athletics, were subjects for
speeches made by some of the dele
gates, and for general discussion.
On Saturday many more confer
ences were held by the delegotes in
order to acquaint each with the
workings of their own colleges, and
many valuable discussions were
heard by the assembly. In the even
ing a formal banquet was given the
delegates, and the session was
CAROLINA ENJOYS YEAR
OF SUCCESS IN ORATORY
Two Victories Are Won in Prominent
Debates and Two Triumphs In
With two victories in debating and
two triumphs in oratorical contests,
the year 1920-21 was one of the most
successful that Carolina has ever en
joyed in forensic activities. The com
pletion of the inter-collegiate debat
ing schedule this year left Carolina's
entire record standing at virtually 70
per cent. won. In establishing this
record, Carolina won 37 and lost 16.
The debating program this year
included a single debate with the
TTnivprsit.v of Pennsvlvania. and a tri-
anguiar debate with Johna Hopkins
I University and Washington and Lee
.University. In the first debate, al
though Pennsylvania is the much
larger of the two institutions, Caro
lina triumphed over her big oppon
ent by a unanimous vote of the five
judges. Carolina was represented in
this contest by C. T. Boyd, C. D.
Beers, and T. C. Taylor.
In the triangular debate, Carolina
sent Daniel L. Grant and B. C.
Brown against Johns Hopkins, and
John Kerr, Jr., and T. C. Taylor
aerainst Washington and Lee. Grant
'and Brown won over Johns Hopkins
by a unanimous vote, but Taylor and
Kerr lost to Washington and Lee by
the close vote of three to two.
In the oratorical contest Carolina
was no less successful than in the
intercollegiate debates. In " the
Southern Oratorical contest, in which
the leading Southern universities
were represented, Carolina won first
place. In this contest, Carolina was
represented by D. R. Hodgin, who
took as his subject "War Declared."
In the State Peace, Oratorical con
test, Carolina was represented by
Phillip Hettleman, who captured the
In addition to the inter-collegiate
contests, the program for the year
included a number of local contests,
in which the members of every class
were given an opportunity to show
their ability. These included thp two

Carolina's participation in the con
ference and ratfication of the regul
ations agreed upon will probably
lead to a change in schedule, so that
a majority of the games played by
Carolina teams will be with South
ern colleges who are also members
of the conference. It is hoped by
those favoring the new plan that
the changed schedule will stimulate
interest in games played with col
leges outside the state, since a South
ern championship will be put up as
the goal, rather than the state cham
pionship as at present.
The following colleges and univer
sities have ratified the action of the

HAVE SUCCESSFUL YEAR
Editors of the Several Publications
Have Even More Extensive Plans
For Next Year
Student publications at the Uni
versity took a decided step forward
during the year just past. The New
Carolina Magazine, the outcome of
a new management of the old Caro
lina Magazine, took the form of a
real periodical similar in form to that
of The Literary Digest, with short
stories, articles, editorials, and poems
that were of interest to the students.
The Tar Heel took a decided step
forward when it became a semi
weekly of larger size and more read
able news. A new publication ap
peared in the form of the R. O. T. C.
official organ, "Utelm."
During the; next year the New
Carolina Magazine plans to appear
anmi-mnnthlv. Tt Will. aCCOrdinfiT to
William E. Horner, editor-in-chief,
be divided into sections, over which
an associate editor will preside, of,
poetry, fiction, interesting people, in
teresting things, science, and others
of equal timeliness.
"The innovation of a semi-month-,
ly will' be a success," says Editor-in-Chief
Horner, "The Carolina Maga-
zine -published this year is the best
that has been published so far, but
we have to improve on it next year."

CAROLINA CLOSES SUCCESSFUL
YEAR IN ATHLETICS AND WINS
STATE HONORS IN TWO SPORTS
Year Building Program With
ft of $1,440,000 Granted Uni
versity by State.
After a hard fight on the part of
alumni, students, and people out over
the State interested in general in
the University and the other State
educational institutions, a compro-
mis of the appropriations bill was
reached by the Senate and Budget
Commission, and the University re
ceives $i,44L,uuu lor a two year
building program, to be proportion
ally added to in 1923 if the money
issued in this appropriation is spent
wisely and carefully. i
When hundreds of students had
to be turned away from the Univer
sity the past two years for lack of
housing facilities, and when all the
dormitories on the campus had to
be filled with three and four students
in the room, it was easily seen that
a larger appropriation was necessary.
A five year building program, calling
for an appropriation of ten million
dollars from the State for the Uni
versity of North Carolina was map
ped out and presented to the Legis-
i-j. .i n i 1
lature ana oenate, ana tne com
promise named above was finally
pushed through and awarded the ef
forts of the workers for the appro
priation. The appropriation made by the
Senate falls short of that called for
by the original proponents ' of the
bill. But until 1923 the money ap
propriated to the University will be
about all that can be spent, and the
sum will go a long way in housing
the students eliminating the crowd
ed conitions now in evidene.
Moirrtw ltnn. o mfioatiyo Hopn work
ed for more .earnestlv nW harrier
than was the appropriation bill work
ed for by the students at Carolina,
as well as hundreds of interested
alumni and friends of the institu
tion. The student publications join
ed in the propaganda, and organiza
tions contributed financially and with
sheer work in advertisement of the
need of the money at the Univer
sity. When the appropriations made
was first announced President Chase
and President Foust of the North
Carolina College for Women stood
out for either open rejection or ac
ceptance of the bills as first propos
ed, making an appropriation of $20,
000,000, for the State institutions.
But when the uselessness in holding
out any longer to an agreement of
this plan appeared so evident and
assurance was made that at the end
of two years all . the money would
be allotted to the University of
North Carolina that could be wisely
spent, the presidents of the two in
stitutions gave in.

The Best in The South.

When Carolina defeated Trinity in

not only in North Carolina but in
Virginia and South Carolina as well.
the Tar Heels closed one of the most
successful athletic years in it his
tory. , State championship honors
were won in basketball and baseball,
and missed by two-thirds of a point
in track. Football was the only phase
of athletics in which Carolina suf
fered a really bad season.
Baseball Season Highly Successful.
Playing : twenty-one scheduled
games, winning sixteen, losing four,
and tying one, was the record that
Fetzer's baseball charges made. This
record seems all the more remark
able when the long Northern trip that
the Tar Hoels made is taken into con
sideration, and in light of the fact
that the schedule was one of the
hardest and most difficult ever play
ed by a Carolina baseball team.
Coach Bill Fetzer, who came here
during the winter term and signed
a contract to take permanent charge
of all athletics here in the future,
to be assisted by his brother, Robert
Fetzer, did his first work for Caro
lina in the coaching of the baseball
team this spring, and the highly suc
cessful aggregation of baseball war
riors that he turned out speaks well
for Carolina athletics in the future.
Coach Fetzer was blessed with an un
usual amount of good material this
spring, and he made the best of it.
With Captain" ""Lefty" Wilson, Llew
ellyn and Bryson doing the majority
f the mound work, with an infield
Donald and Morris, with an outfield
of Sweetman, Shirley, Lowe, and
with Roy Morris at the receiving end,
Carolina shot through the season like
Heavy slugging was the long shot
of Fetzer's aggregation, and during
the season ten home runs were
garnered off opposing twirlers' de
liveries, besides an unusual number
of doubles and triples. In the state,
Trinity was defeated twice, Wake
Forest twice, Davidson two out of
three, and the Tar Heels split a two
game series with State College, but
the West Raleigh collegians readily
conceded a well deserved state cham
pionship to Fetzer's team.
Football Only Mar of Year.
Carolina's poor record in football
was the only mar of an otherwise
wonderful athletic year. In this
sport the Tar Heels won only two
games out of an eight-game sched
ule, though all eight of the contest
were real battles.
Coach Myron Fuller, coming from
Yal e, and Assistant Coach Clay Hite,
