plans for the magazine this year are
very elaborate, the publication to bis

teresting form than ever, if the as
pirations of the editors materialize.
A broad and impressive editorial
policy will be carried out by the
magazine. In the first issue some
strong editorials are run, and 'this
will be the aim of the editor in the
future. The magazine, as last year,
will be composed of both feature ar

Get Together Meeting For Old and
New Men Takes Place
The annual celebration of College
Night will be held tonight in Gerrara
Hall beginning at 7:30. There is an
unusual program prepared for this
get-together meeting and all the stu
dent, regardless of css, are-, re
quested to be present. F. A. Gris
sebte ; will preside and to him has
fallen the task of preparing the de
tails and order of procedure. After
the meeting in Gerrard Hall is over
there will be a reception in the gym
nasium to which all are Invited. The
idea of this reception is two-fold, to
give the freshmen a chance to meet
their own classmates and the upper
classmen, and to give the upper class
men the opportunity to get together
with their old friends. All the seniors
are asked to be on hand with the
freshmen "buddies" that have been
assigned to them.
The speakers in Gerrard will in
clude student speakers representing
some of the important phases of col
lege activities, and among others, Mr.
Frank Graham will be on hand to give
us all a taste of the Carolina spirit.
Llewellyn, captain elect of the base
ball team, will represent" the ath
letic side of college life. Garland
Porter ,the first president of the stu
dent body, will talk on ithe student
government at the University, and
on the honor system. L. J. Phipps,
president of the senior class will talk
on scholarship and the Phi Beta
Kappa. " George Denny will rep-j
resent the Carolina Playmakers. ' .
The whole idea of this program is
to give the new students a good idea
of those important sides of the life
at the University that ate not featur
ed in the catalogue, but Jiave a most
important place on the campus.
After the program in Gerrard Halt
there will be the reception ,in the
gymnasium. This will be a general
get' together meeting and it is ru
mored that there will be some form
of food on hand.
Last Saturday State went to An

feat at the hands of the Navy Acad
emy, previously she had defeated
Randolph-Macon by the same mar
gin that Carolina defeated Wake
Forest one week later" in her first
game of the sason, consequently the
game with Yale will give a basis of
comparison as to the relative show
ing of the two elevens against North

. Yale experienced .no difficulty in
winning last Saturday by a large
score, but the game was considered
more in the light of a practice affair
than an expected hotly contested
game, and Carolina, is, .expected to

The first game with Eli was played
three years ago during Tommy Camp

the Tar Heels threw a real scare
into the Yale camp and managed to
score one of the few touchdowns reg
istered against her during the en
tire season. In fact, it was then
that '.'Chuck" Pharr showed up a new
wrinkle in the year's rules when he
picked up a ball that the Yale team
looked upon as dead and registered
a touchdown with it.
