Former Hi-Y Members to
Smoke at An Early
At a meeting, called by Secre
tary Comer of the "Y," of twenty
men who were formerly members of
Hi-Y clubs of their home towns, ten
of whom are sophomores and ten
freshmen, it was decided to call all
former Hi-Y men together, of whom
there are about 150 on the Hill,
at a smoker to be held either in
the University Cafeteria or in the
social rooms of the Presbyterian
church within the next two weeks.
The purpose of this banquet is to
organize a permanent organization
to be known by some such name
as the "Freshmen's Friendship Coun
cil of the Y. M. C. A.," the object
of which is to put into practice what
was taught in the Hi-Y club, which
is a national organization for boys
in high schools and Y. M. C. A.'s,
whose purpose is, to quote its con
stitution, "to create, maintain and
extend throughout the school and
the community high standards of
Christian character." This is also
the general purpose of a college Y.
M. C. A.
The object of inviting sophomores
to this banquet is to give the new
men the benefit of their college ex
perience in formulating their policies
for the year. Hereafter it will be
the annual custom of the sophomores
to turn over the organization to the
incoming class in such a banquet at
the beginning of each year. Ihe
council at the end of each year will
write letters to- every Hi-Y club in
the state, welcoming Hi-Y boys to
Carolina in the name of the former
The following clubs were repre
sented at the meeting: Asheville,

cluded walking down Durham's main
street, then several side streets until
the coal schute was reached in East
Durham. For three long hours the
seventeen, augmented by an addi
tional four, swelling the number to
21, sat on cross ties, rails, talked
to the coal schute foreman and
jumped with delight every time a
switch engine whistled.
The 6:25 finally came along. Three
of the weary willies grabbed the
blind baggage and two payed their
way to Raleigh. The rest fumed and
fussed and cussed up and down the
track in front of the coal schute.
Finally a belated freight hove into
view amid much planning and scat
tering. The engine unhooked and
went up for water and coal and the
remainder of the hoboes climbed
aboard flat cars, box cars and tank
cars. Forty minutes later the gang
gave N. C. State a noisy greeting as
they crossed the campus of that in

The first freight scheduled to pass
through the state capital was due at
5:30, entirely too late to make the
gamp at Richmond. However, No.
2, the fast mail, and a troop train
running on passenger schedule were
due within fifteen minutes. Three
men gave up the trip and went back
to Raleigh. While the party was sep
arating in order to ride the top of
the Pullman carrying the football
team, the troop train came in.
A shout of jubulation went up.
Ihe train carried several cars load
ed with automobile trucks and a
camp kitchen. While one man
"sweet talked" the officer of the
guard, the rest clambered aboard in
full view of the crew, which was in
no uncertain humor about the whole
matter. The guards proved to be
true friends of college boys and
when the train rolled out of the
yards, 14 men rolled under trucks.
Everything was sitting pretty un
til Norlina wis reached. There the
train waited for the fast mail to
pull into the yards and pass before
pulling out. The conductor, a surly
beast with a nasty temper, found two
of the young hopefuls under a truck
and ordered them off in no uncertain
terms, at times speaking with force

Five Thousand People Crowd Into
Richmond's Island Park to See

a brilliant page into the football his
tory of the University Saturday aft
ernoon when they humbled the
mighty "Flying Squadron" of V. M.
I., 20 to 7, with approximately 6,000
people looking on.
The large Richmond park was
filled to overflowing, and every seat
for the game was sold long before
time for the first whistle to blow.
Hundreds of people, admirers of
North Carolina and V. M. I., came
from long distances to see the strug

Both teams went into the strug

Carolina played until the middle of
the last quarter without making a
change. V, M. I. were favorites on
account of superior weight, and bet
ting in the city, while very much
under cover, was carried on to high
stakes in many cases. '
Had it not been for the perfect
team work of the Carolina Varsity
the game could almost have been
called "Johnson vs. V. M. I." The
red-headed halfback played the most
flashing game of the season and un-

time carrying it five successive times
for a touchdown.
Johnson was every where in every
play. His interference was deadly,
he recovered fumbles, he ran back
punts, he gained every time he was
called on through the line; he in
tercepted forward passes, he gained
around the ends, he received forward
passes, he scored two touchdowns,
and he, always came up grinning
from ear to ear.
The individual feature of the
game came in the opening minutes
of the second half when Johnson
received the kickoff on his own five
yard line and tore through the entire
V. M. I. team for 65 yards, placing
the ball in the shadow of the Cadet
goal posts. Lowe, Gillon and Morris
helped the mighty Johnson to shove
the first touchdown across.

showing marked improvement over
past performances, went to Lynch
burg Saturday afternoon and gave
Woodberry Forest Preparatory
School a good drubbing to the tune
of 21 to 0.
Neither team could secure any ad
vantage by a passing game, so the

The first year line was strengthen

to be a factor in the consistent gains
made by the backfield. The entire
backfield ran well, put up a good in

was the individual star of the game

and consistent football, time after

President Chase announced to the
student body Thursday in chapel
that the Invisible Order of the
Stygians here on the campus had
made an admirable gift to the Car
olina football varsity in that this
order had given twenty-five blue
blankets with N. C. inscribed. The
Stygians donated this drapery to the
team out of a spirit of affection for
the football aggregation. President
Chase declared that it was the will
of the Stygians to give a blanket
to the captain of each year's team,
and this blanket would be replaced
by the order.
Chas. T. Woolen, graduate man
ager, accepted the gift on behalf of
the athletic association, and declar
ed that it tended to show a fine at
titude and that he warmly appre
ciated the donation and the spirit
in which it was given to the team.
At .the conclusion of this cere
mony Garland B. Porter lead "Split
Carolina" for the Stygians. Music
was rendered by the Carolina band.
PROF. TOM PETE CROSS
TALKS TO PLAYMAKERS
Chicago Professor is to Edit Dialect
of Plays to Be Published for
Dr. Tom Pete Cross of the -University
of Chicago, the man who is
to edit the dialect of the five plays
to be published for the Carolina Play
makers, gave a very interesting lec
ture, in an informal manner, to Pro
fessor Koch's two courses in dra
matic composition on Tuesday after
noon in the Playmakers' room of the
Besides the students from these
two courses several graduates from
other courses were there. The re
maining space in the small room was
taken up by faculty members from
the English and foreign language de
partments. Most every member of
these two staffs were there.
Dr. Cross is interested in the lan
guage of the people of the South,
their dialect, and pecularities of
speech in general. He is a southern
man, was born and raised in this
state and Virginia, and is a former
member of the University of North
Carolina. For several years he has
concerned himself with the study of
southern-folk speech, and it was on
this subject that he talked.
Paying high tribute to the work
of the Carolina Playmakers, Dr.
Cross said that the only great ob
jection and fault he and his collea
gues have been able to find in the
plays which have been written here
is a lack of standard dialect or
spelling of the dialect. In his es
timation the plays are of high liter
ary quality, but the dialects are not
quite as peculair to the sections of
the state from which they come as
the other high standards of dramatic
technique set in other technicalities
of the plays. This above all things,
and almost alone, needs improve
ment. At the conclusion of his talk he
asked the aid of each member of the
two classes in finding peculiarities
of pronunciation of certain words as
found in difierent parts of the state.
Dr. Cross has returned to Chicago
where he will continue his work on
the dialect of the five plays to be
published, and he and Professor
Koch hope to soon have them sent
from touchdown, Sparrow (3).
