OF THE PLAYMAKERS
Production Lat Friday and Satur
day Evenings Well Received By
Fair Sized Audience.
THE CASTS WELL SELECTED
The plays were good.
Whatever the comment or criti
cism, past or present, on the gen
eral subject of the Carolina Play
makers, there is no getting around
the fact that their latest productions,
presented last Friday and Saturday
evenings at the local play house,
scored heavily in their favor.
The plays selected for presentation
were of a type with an especial ap
peal to the more intellectual audi
ence of the college community. The
sparkling wit and originality of
George Bernard Shaw, and the light
comedy of the Provincetown play
wrights must certainly be considered
a rare treat anywhere we find them
combined in one program. The ac
tual presentation, too, appeared to U9
as somewhat better than anything
done lately hereabout.
"How He Lied to Her Husband"
occupied the premiere position on the
program. Some persons have attack-1
ed this one act comedy of Shaw's' (
terming it "trivial" but to save us
we can't agree. The plot is striking-1
ly original, and the repartee is un-j
usually brilliant and in these daysj
of drab sameness we are not inclined:
to credit any such as being merely Former Carolina Student Doe. Not

principal of which is to be used

hundred and twenty-five dollars.
One of these scholarships will
be granted to a member of each
of the academic classes, and
they are good for one year only.
They are open to both men and
According to the wishes of
the donor, the scholarships are
controlled by a committee con
sisting of the president of the
University, Mr. Woollep, and
Professor Noble. Applications
for these Holt scholarships
should be made in writing to
the president of the University,
not later than November 15th.
Payment of the award will be
made in three installments.
It is Mr. Holt's wish that no
applicant for these scholarships
should be considered by the
committee who is able to remain
in college without such help.
Full evidence of this fact must,
therefore, be laid before the
committee by the applicants.

Davidson Scrubs ran up a score of
28-0 on the first year reserve team
on Emerson field here Saturday, dis
playing an offensive power in sweep
ing end runs and forward passes that
were too much for Coach Morrison's
first year men. The freshmen de
fense showed lack of training, and
although at times displayed flashes
of driving power were far from con
sistent in their gaining and twice
were halted and reverse i inside
Davidson's five yard line.
The game was featureless with the
exception of the consistent offensive
power of the Wild Kittens, which was
made brilliant by one long broken
field run by Raker, netting fifty
yards for Davidson in the second
quarter. In the second half the
freshmen showed their greatest
strength, driving up the field by line
plunges and fairly successful end
runs, but were soon stopped, and
thereafter never threatened.
George was freshmen's most con

plunging through Davidson's line with

The second play, "Suppressed De

Susan Glaspell, of the Provincetown
Players, purports to be a Freudian
comedy. Although it was as a whole
rather well done, we must confess
that we were not so much impressed
with it as its predecessor. The play
was in two acts and written about the
new and apparently unknown science
of physco-analysis. The atmosphere
of the real Greenwich Village was
well brought out, instead of the sor

Latest Will Be the Susan Moses

That the town of Chapel Hill is
rapidly emerging from a "Sleepy Hoi-'
low" village to an enterprising metro
polis is evident from the many im-'
provements that have taken place the
past few months. The handsome new'
fire truck, the clock pealing out the
quarter hour, the glaring electric (

teria have lent a more citified ap-!
pearance to the town and now comes j
a new feature in the "Susan Moses,

will take the place of the old town
pump near the Methodist church.
Work on the foundation of the
fountain was started from the plans
prepared by the T. C. Atwood Or

completion is expected. The land

Captain of last year's tennis team,
upset all of the tennis dope. Jerni
gan was in turn defeated by Barden
of last year's team, and this also was
unexpected. Twenty were out for
the team, a larger number than that
of last year.
The first matches were of little
consequence, two men defaulting, and
the varsity men of last year playing
weaker opponents. With the excep
tion of the Brett Smith-Tench Cox
match all of the varsity men won
out. Smith was eliminated 6-0 and
6-2. Before the terrific serving and
lofting of Cox, at no time did he have
a chance to win a set. -
Bruton, a promising player and
former Trinity varsity man was
eliminated by Johnson, 6-2, 10-8.
Johnson is one of the best men on
the courts, Cox probably being the
only one his superior. Johnson play
ed Barden in the final match on Mon
day. Barden, who defeated Jernigan,
played good tennis, and is probably
the best man on the court on using
the back and loft. He won his match
with Jernigan by this stroke, and by
an unusual accuracy in placing.
Jernigan was considered off-form.
The tennis team for the fall quar
ter will probably be comprised of
Jernigan, Johnson, Cox and Barden.

DOPE UPSET SATURDAY.
All the usual dope handed
out during the past week re
lating to Saturday's football
scores came to naught when
the actual contests were played.
Maryland's defeat at the hands
of the Carolina Varsity was of
course the most pleasing score
of the week.
Among the optomistic dope
sters Carolina was expected to
make . a good showing against
Maryland, but after the show
ing made against . V. P. I. by
Maryland, a much closer game
was, expected. Carolina won by
displaying a better brand of
football than did Maryland,
profiting to a great extent by
the lesosns taught by the State
and South Carolina games.
Centre's win over Harvard
was a pleasing, if unexpected
surprise. Even though the score
was only 6 to 0, it was the first
time Harvard has been whip
ped in five years, and one of
the few times her goal line has
been crossed. Georgia Tech
furnished the disappointment of
the week-end in loosing 28 to 7
to Penn State. Many thought
the Golden Tornado would win.

student body. These songs Mr.
Weaver declared to be the very best
in the country in so far as he knew,
and that they were particularly ap
propriate for the University as they
were composed and written with
that in view. These songs, he said,
would be used at the Carolina-Virginia
game here Thanksgiving and if
once mastered by the student body
they will create quite a favorable im
pression. Scrubby Rives, Carolina cheer
leader, stated briefly that prior to
this we had not used songs as much
as we should have; but that here
after we would use more songs. Yale,
he said, used songs entirely for her
'cheering; and that the songs were
splendidly put across by the students.

At the outset a motion was passed
setting apart the meeting of next

that came up for discussion embraced
the question of compulsory chapel
attendance for all students, profes
sional students and seniors not hav
ing been excepted by the introducers,
in the future. The discussion on
the bill seemed practically all in the
opposition, until the latter minutes of
discussion when supporters began to
spring to their feet and clamor for
introduction. This bill was discussed
for an hour, and the assembly not
being ready to take action on it,
was continued until the next meet
ing. W. B. Umstead of the class of
1916, one of the most loyal of the
Phi's alumni, was present during the
meeting. At the request of Speaker
Moore, he talked to the members un
til time to adjourn for the bonfire
celebration. Mr. Umstead's talk was
forceful and to the point. He praised
the value of the society as an in
stitution of training, and urged the
members to participate in the discus
sions, and thus to derive the benefits
that are theirs, if sought.
Kerr, Spain and Hampton were
appointed as a committee to extend

all excuses as to absences which were
not necessarily under the jurisdiction
of the appellate committee. This
amendment was passed.

Lowe fought the devil with fire when

and three forward passes from mys
