BEFORE STUDENT BODY
Exercises Held in Chapel Last Tues
day Formally Putting Body in
Charge of Conduct.
PRESIDENT PORTER TALKS
' The formal installation of the stu
dent council took place in Memorial
Hall at the chapel period Tuesday
morning. This was as first announc
ed, but some confusion had arisen on
account of a special speaker from
New York having been expected, so
that only six of the eight council
men were present. These were G.
B. Porter, president of the student
body and of the student council; L.
J. Phipps, president of the senior
class; John Ambler, president of the
sophomore class; M. W. Nash, rep
resentative from last year's council;
T. E. Jones, representative from the
medical school, and Thomas Turner,
president of the junior class. C. M.
Lewellyn and E. E. Moore, represen
tatives of the law and pharmacy
schols, respectively, were not pres
ent. G. B. Porter, as spokesman for
the council, introduced the other five
members, after which he made a brief
talk, setting forth the duties and
powers of the body. He emphasized
again, as he has done repeatedly in
past talks to students, the question
of individual responsibility. Briefly
outlining the policy of the present
council, Porter stated that it had been
decided to make every decision unani
mous, also that the jurisdiction of
the student council extends to wher
ever a student is known as a Caro
lina man and where misconduct as
such would bring the University into
"The ideal student council," he de
clared, "is one which meets in the
spring when it is elected, the next
fall when it is formally installed,
again to have its picture taken for
the Yackety Yack, and finally in the
spring after the new council has been
elected. We shall try to work to
ward that ideal, but if occasion arise
which cannot be handled in any other
way, the student council will prompt
ly take steps to meet it."
HERE TOMORROW NIGHT.
- The Harry Leiter Light Opera
Company has been secured by
the music department for a per
formance of "Robin Hood" in
Memorial Hall Saturday night.
This organization has the repu
tation of being one of the best
of the sort in the country, and
has appeared in a large number
of southeastern cities with great
success. The company consists
of Mr. Harry A. Leiter, bari
tone; Miss Hazel Huntley, con
tralto; Miss Martha Cook, so
prano; Mr. Joseph Kendrick,
tenor, and Mr. Harrison W.
Burch, pianist five young ar
tists of real ability and of rapid
ly growing reputation.
Robin Hood has long been
one of the most popular of the
light operas. The story, set in
Sherwood Forest, with Friar
Tuck, Little John, Robin Hood
and the others, is a familiar
classic, and the music is most
catchy and attractive. The pro
gram will be presented in two
parts: a short miscellaneous
program by the five artists, fol
lowed by the opera.
The admission fee will be 30
cents, the entire house being
available at that one price with
no reserved seats.

Week, November 6-12, were discuss

people and students in the library of
the Chapel Hill graded school Tues
day afternoon. The purpose of. the
meeting, as outlined by Mrs. Henry,

T. C. Atwood Organization Lets
Contract to University School
An event of unusual interest to
students who are working their way
through the University took place
this week when the T. C. Atwood
organization, which has charge of the
new- University construction, .award
ed the contract for the wiring of
dormitories "B" and "C" to Prof. J.
E. Lear, representing the University
Department of Electrical Engineering
and the Student Self Help Commit
tee. The award was of no less im
portance to the University, since the
guaranteed price represents a saving
of the four dormitories to be built
of several thousand dollars over the
original bid of one of the large con
tractors. Part of this saving is due to sug
gested changes in the plans and speci-j
fications made by the Electrical En-i
gineering Department, with a view to J
simplifying the system of wiring and,
control. The final system agreed j
upon will require less than half as
much material as the one originally
planned. This does not mean that
the rooms will not be adequately
wired. On the contrary, the light
ing will be better than in any other
dormitory on the campus.
The actual work of construction
will be done by University students,
under the direction of an expert. The
whole job will be supervised by Pro
fessor Lear, who- is largely respon
sible for the whole idea. Professor
Lear will be glad to receive appli
cations from students who desire to
do this work.
Written applications should be ad
dressed to him -immediately. They
should state what experience the ap
plicant has had, and should contain
an accurate schedule of the man's
classes so that arrangements can be
made to have someone on the job
all the time.
While the Freshmen have not been
winning, or even playing consistent
football, they have been showing
flashes of coming brilliance that
needs only practice and experience
to make them a strong team.
Woodberry Forest has been playing
bang-up football all season, and many
men will want to see them in action.
Last Saturday they defeated the
strong Asheville school by a comfort
able margin and will show some real
football Saturday if they live up to
Several changes will be made in
the Freshman line and Sparrow will
probably start the game for the first
year men. Thomas, who was injured
in the game against Bingham, and
who did the stellar work for the team
in that game, will be back into the
action. He will be watched with interest.

R. S. Pickens, of Morganton, was

On Richmond's island gridiron Sat
urday afternoon two of the foremost
football machines of the South will
clash when V. M. I. and the Caro
lina Varsity line up for the first of
the two inter-state football games on
If comparative scores have any
value, the V. M. I. squad is two
touchdowns the better. North Caro
lina State won from Carolina, 7 to 0.
V. M. I. and N. C. State played to a
7 to 7 tie. Those two games are the
only ones in either schedule on which
a comparison can be made.
Although State won from Carolina
by one touchdown, the win had some
of the elements of luck in it. The
State-V. M. I. game was an exhibition
of two good teams playing mediocre
football. V. M. I. lost to the Uni
versity of Virginia, 14 to 7, and to
Pennsylvania, 21 to 7. The Flying
Squadron, however, has taken on
new life since that time and has
been playing the same type of foot
ball exhibited last year, when they
won from Carolina, 21 to 0.
The outcome of the game is doubt
ful. The breaks will have much o
do with the final score, although Vir
ginia sport writers maintian that Car-
I olina should be easy for V. M. I.
The Virginia sport writers, however,
have a habit of being wrong about
as much as they are right when it
comes to judging a North Carolina
The game will be played in Vir
ginia, but there is much talk of a
special train to Richmond. Even
though the train isn't run, there will
be hundreds of Carolina rooters pres
ent, as every railroad clerk and dock
hand in Richmond will take the day
off and wear either V. M. I. or Car
olina colors, and North Carolina has
her hare of them in Richmond.
Every North Carolinian in Richmond
will be there, if not physically dis
abled, as North Carolinians in Rich
mond have what the Richmond folks
call "A detestable habit of talking
about 'own Home' all the time."

Gather For First Time Since The
Organization Was Chartered as
Chapter of National Order.
The Civil Engineering Society club,
a chapter of the American Society
of Civil Engineers, and which was
organized here this fall, held its first
meeting as a chapter of the national
organization on Tuesday evening, in
The local chapter has been named
after Major Cain and only awaits
the approval of the national organiz
ation to make it the permanent name
of the organization. Requests to
that effect will be made by the local
chapter of the American Society.
This is a worthy compliment to a
man whose books on the subject of
Civil Engineering were some of the
first on that subject in America.
Practically every member of the
local chapter was present. Short
talks were made by Major Cain,
other members of the Civil Engineer
ing School faculty and a few stu
dents. A royal feed was held be
tween talks. The chapter plans to
meet every Thursday night during
the college year.
