Estes and Pendergraft in the line
have been showing up well during
the week and both the ends have been
playing good ball, though weak in
getting down under punts.
Coach Morrison stated yesterday
that the entire Freshman squad was
working hard and that the class gave
promise of turning out more good
football material next fall than any
class that has been here during the
history of the University. He is well
pleased with the showing of his team
and with practice will have one of

WITH SPLENDID SPIRIT
Tuesday "Night Canvassers Went Out
For Funds Results Not Avail
able for This Issue.
The Y. M. C. A. launched its an
nual financial campaign in great
shape Tuesday night under the lead
ership of C. L. Moore, campaign man
ager and G. H. Leonard, secretary.
The Tar Heel goes to press befire
any figures are available, but the
morale of the thirty-six men who did
the canvassing insured success.
At a meeting of these men immedi
ately before the campaign was open
ed, each man showed his loyalty to
his work by contributing an aver
age of $5.88. The meeting was open
ed by the signing of "Onward Chris
tian Soldiers" and a prayer by Par
son Moss. The feature and purpose
of the, meeting was the explanation
of the budget by Secretary Comer,
who emphasized the fact that Caro
lina has a representative in China,
whose name in his city In China is
a pass word, and of the $4,500 asked
for, $1,500 goes to this representa
tive, Eugene Barnett. -
The fact that the Y.M. C. A. may
be given charge of the new Graham
Memorial building was also hinted at.
After light refreshments were served
the canvassers went to work with a
feeling of confidence. Information
as to the outcome of the campaign
will be published in the next issue
of The Tar Heel.

Do you know that the "kick-off" is
made from the forty yard line? That
the side which is scored on has the
choice of kicking or receiving? That
all of the line must be in back of the
kicker on the "kick-off?"
Do you know that your presence
along the side lines during a game
means a fifteen yard penalty for your
squad? That a member of the team
playing unduly rough or dirty foot
ball can cause the team to get a
Do you know what is meant by a
down and that a team gets four
downs to make their yards? A down
is when the referee declares the ball
"dead" by the blowing of his whistle.
A team's yards are the ten yards
which they must either cover during
their four downs or surrender tho
ball to the opposing tram.
Do you know thf.t the Captain of
the team is the only man who has
the right to talk te the referee?
Do you know that when a forward
pass is incomplete, or in other words
not received, it is taken back to the
point where it was put in play and
the side holding the ball is charged
with a down?
CHAPEL TALKS SUPPORT
Dean Carrol and Frank Graham Made
Interesting Talks Supporting
What might be called a composite
talk in behalf of the Y. M. C. A.'s
financial campaign was made in
chapel Tuesday morning by Dean
Carrol and Frank Graham, whom
President Chase introduced as "two
headlixers in one chapel period."
Dean Carrol spoke first, discussing
true and false economy, after which
Mr. Graham made a short, forceful
appeal to the students for financial
support of the work of the Young
Men's Christian Association at the
Dean Carrol remarked that he had
been impressed upon coming to Caro
lina with the spirit of economy which
characterized the institution. With
regard to the handling of money he
divided people into three classes
misers, economists, and spendthrifts.
It is the second type, he said, who
get the maximum amount of enjoy
ment from the money which they dis
burse. The speaker also distinguish
ed between direct and indirect re
turns upon investments, asserting
that most of us are so deceived by
the former that we cannot properly
appreciate the latter. He cited a
number of examples to show the
value of indirect returns and con
cluded his talk by referring to a
great cooperative enterprise of fac
ulty and students which sought to
guarantee a maximum return, either
directly or indirectly, for every dol
lar invested in it.
"I am gald of this opportunity to
speak in behalf of an organization
which still goes forth to war under
the banner of a young man who went
forth to die almost two thousand
years ago," declared Mr. Graham.
"The creed of the Young Men's
Christian Association is the great
trinity of youth a vigorous body,
a- clean mind,- and -a- fine spirits It
is the only voluntary religious or
ganization on this campus. Take it
out, let it die from lack of support
or weak leadership, and you strike
at what ought to be the very foun-j
dation of our interests and activi
ties." Among other things, Professor
Graham spoke of the wide scope of
the Y. M. C. A.'s work, not only on
the campus but out in the state and
in foreign fields as well. He con
cluded with a stirring appeal for stu
dent support in putting the financial
campaign "over the top."

First Two Weeks Washing Completed
in Eight Days Service As
sured for Future.
C. H. Robertson, of Charlottes

Tuesday to assume his duties here
as the foreman of the new laundry.
In the future Mr. Paulson, superin
tendent of the establishment, will
devote his time to the collection and
deliveries, at the Fame time looking
after the laundry in general.
The first two weeks washing was
completed Tuesday morning, having
been done in a little over eight days.
Things will be more satisfactory in
the future at the laundry, since the
first big rush is over. The force of
employees has been increased, and
are daily becoming more accustomed
to their work.

Elaborate Plans to Extend Arbore
tum Back to Forest Theatre
Axe Being Formed.
SOME DAMAGE BY DROUGHT
Plans to extend the arboretum as
far into Battle park as the Forest
theatre have been announced by Dr.
W. C. Coker. Work on this new
extension will probably start in the
spring. Dr. Coker expects to follow
the present style of landscaping, with
walks, and scattering shrubs and
plants well arranged. The addition
will extend as far toward the main
street as the back of the president's
home, as far east as the Battle and
Graham properties, and into the park
as a line from the theatre to the
Although the arboretum has been
considerably damaged by the long
drought, Dr. W. C. Coker, its found
er and present guardian, says that
the damage is not nearly so serious
as he had anticipated. Many plants
and shrubs have, been parched to
death, and the grass has been hurt
to a certain degree, but Dr. Coker
hopes to see the place restored .to
its normal beauty within at least two
The entire arboretum has suffered,
but the plants which have been hit
hardest are the evergreens. Most all
of these have been destroyed. A
large number ot Japanese ever
greens, closely related to our native
cedar, are among the losses. With
a few exceptions the native ever
greens are also gone. Besides these
particular losses there has been a
general loss of some of the arbore
tum's most beautiful plants. Shrubs
and small trees, withered by the
sun, had to be cut out in the early
fall, and were thrown into piles in
the grove across the Raleigh road;
it was these piles that made the bon
fire that brought out the whole col
lege Sunday night. The canebrake
has been removed, not because of
having been killed, but because the
students were continually cutting
the canes out, causing a large amount
of rubbish to collect.
There is one little tree, a favorite
with Dr. Coker, which cannot be re
placed for a long time. This is the
Sequoia Gigantia, commonly known
as the California "big tree," which
Dr. Coker has been nursing for six
years, and which had taken a good
growth when the dry spell hit it.
With this one exception all the
plants can be replaced at very lit
tle trouble and not much expense.
The grass has not been completely
destroyed and will regain its strength
with the help of a little rain. The
plants which have been left alive are
being kept up now by daily water
ing. The other important work now
under way is the continued clearing
away of plants hopelessly lost.
The work on the garden behind
Peabody hall, in the southeast cor
ner of the campus has been discon
tinued for the present on account of
the construction work going on near
by. Possibly the whole plot may be
ruined. It was designed with the
purpose of growing there a speciman
of every North Carolina tree, shrub
and plant, but the utilitarian activi
ties of the University have crowded
so close upon it that this purpose
may have to be abandoned.
TAR HEEL EDITOR MAKES
TALK ON PUBLICATIONS
Jonathan Daniels Addresses Students
in Chapel on The Significance
of Carolina Publications.
Jonathan Daniels, editor-in-chief
ot Tne Tar Heel, spoke on the sub
ject of University publications in
chapel Wednesday. He addressed
his remarks chiefly to the new men,
saying that the upperclassmen were
already well acquainted with the
various student publications. The
substance of Daniels' talk was as fol
lows: "Back last summer when you were
just beginning to think seriously of
coming to Carolina, the first thing
besides the catalog that touched you
that was of Carolina were two Uni
versity publications. The special

better appearance than at the open

Especial attention is being paid
by the manager to the drainage of
the courts. The drainage as not the
main question, however, at present,

arrival of students. The extreme
dryness of the courts has led tenis

Professor McKie Makes Talk to First
Year Debaters Concerning Value
of Public Speaking.
After much spirited preliminary
discussion, the Freshman Debating
Society, at its first regular meeting
in Di Hall Monday night, finally
brought order out of chaos and ef
fected a temporary organization to
last until November 14, when per
manent officers will be elected. The
following temporary officers were
chosen: Edwin Lanier, president; C.
Dockery, Jr., vice president; F. M.
Sixteen first year men were pres
ent at the organization meeting of
the society. Prof. McKie called the
meeting to order and made a talk
concerning the value of training in
the art of public speaking. He re
viewed briefly the history of the
Freshman Society during the seven
years of its existence, and called for
an informal discussion of plans for
the year. A great many ideas were
submitted by various members, the
majority favoring the open forum
plan of discussion.
It was decided to allow the tem
porary officers to act as a program
committee to select a question for
debate at the regular meeting next
Monday night. The following query
was selected, "Resolved, That the
Freshman Debating Society go on
record as favoring government own

AT FOISTERS FOR STUDES
A circulating library is one of the
latest additions to Foister's Art
Store. This library contains all of
the latest fiction. Here the student
who has a taste for reading can get
books on love, adventure, or any
other theme that might suit , his
fancy. There are two classes of
books, those that cost two dollars
down, and those that cost one. In
the first class, the member pays his
two dollars for his first book; after
he has read that one he swaps it for
another by paying twenty-five cents.
In the second the first charge is a
dollar and the renewal price is fif
teen cents. The book that the mem
ber has, the last one that he keeps,
is his own property.
The new department of physical
education at the University of Michi
gan will undertake to train men to
look after the moral tone of high
schools, to superintend matters re
lating to hygiene in schools, to train
pupils in gymnastics, to teach them
to play games, and consult with
them about their vocations.
