JOIN THE RED CROSS
Vol No. XXX.
Chapel Hill, N. C, November 11, 1921
RED GROSS LAUNCHED
TODAY BY COMMITTEE
Organization I Perfected To Make
Successful Membership Drive
For The Red Cross Here.
MR. GRAHAM CHAIRMAN
The next step in the Fifth Roll
Call of the American Red Cross,
which is formally inaugurated today,
after the cause has been so favorably
presented to the University by Dr.
Green of the National Committee;
to the town by Professor Frank Gra
ham; to Carrboro by L. J. Phipps;
and to the county by Mr. Francis
Bradshaw, is the campaign drive.
The drive is not to put across in
a hap-hazard manner, but a well
regulated committee has been form
ed by Professor Frank Graham,1
Chairman of the Roll Call, which
according to plans, is going to give
everybody in the community a chance
to enlist in the most patriotic, reli
gious, and humanitarian cause the
world has ever known. It is not an
organization to serve any special
class, nor yet an organization during
crises, such as the late war, but
rather it is an organization to serve
YOU, whoever you are, during war
and peace alike.
With this in view, the local com
mittee has mapped out the follow
ing organization, bearing always in
mind that Carolina goes forward f i
South Atlantic Championship nit
only "n football, but also under the
banner of the Crhmon Cros.

DR. THOMAS J. GREENE
TALKS ON RED CROSS
Representative American Red Cros
Make Eloquent Appeal For Aid
in Chapel Tuesday.
Bringing to the campus a touch
of old-school oratory seldom heard
nowadays, Dr. Thomas J. Greene, di
rector of the speakers' bureau for
the American Red Cross, spoke in
chapel Tuesday morning. His time
being limited to the regular thirty
minute period, Dr. Greene was not
able to cover all phases of Red Cress
work, but he dwelt especially upjn
foreign relief and aid to disabled
soldiers and sailors.
The chapel committee, learning
that Dr. Greene was in Durham,
seized the opportunity of bringing
him to t ie Hill for this address. The
annual Red Cross roll call begins
next Monday, a fact which made the
committee all the more anxious to
secure a speaker on this subject.
""If there is anything connected'
with our American social system tint
has to do w:.th the fundamental cur
rents of life, it is the Red Cross'"
said Dr. Greene. "Mary people fail
to understand what the Red Cross
is. Now that thd war is over tney
ask why it doesn't draw in its lines,
demobilize its forces, and quit work
on a large scale. It doesn't stop be
cause it can't stT). It is an int?rrrpl
part of the government, an organiza
tion created by chaiter of Congress,
which states specifically what the
Red Cross shall do. The five great
departments of government are rep
resented on its cabinet, and it can
no r.iore stop than the treasury de
partment can stop."
According to Dr. Greene, there
are three things which the Red Cross
is required to do by this charter.
It must render voluntary aid to sol
diers and sailors in time of war.
It must act as a channel of com
munication between the people at
home and their relatives in the army
and navy. It must continue to give
national and international aid in
case of famine,' fir., fked, oi epi
demic of any kind.
Dr. Greene spoke of his travels in
southern. Europe since the war and
.-"epicted in graphic terms the misety
of the starving people, esneria'ly the
children. The danger to civilization
resulting from such conditions oiif;ht
to give us great concern, he said.
In concluding the speaker became
very eloquent ir his tribute to Amer
ican soldiers, sailors and nurses. He
spoke of the g:';at number of t; cse
men and women whose health has
been ruined as a result of the war,
although they may have escaped
without an apparent wound. "We
must not allow one of them to say
that their country is ungrateful," he
said, "and it is to save them that

I The Shakespeare Playhouse ; Com
pany of New York will be here next
week for three performances at the
Play-House on the 18th and 19th.
On Friday evening they will present
"Candida," by Bernard Shaw; Satur
day afternoon Ibsen's masterpiece,
"A Doll's House;" and Saturday
evening three one-act Dlavs. "A
Night At An Inn," by Dunsany, "In
The Shadow of The Glen," by Synge,
and "The Rising of The Moon" by
This company played here ; last
summer under the auspices of the
Carolina Playmakers, and each of
their productions met with great suc
cess. Professor Koch and others say
it is the best company of profession
al actors ever seen on a univeristy
Mr. McEntee, director of the 'com
pany, is a fine actor himself . f He
brought out Walter Hampden in New
York, the most famous "Hamlet" of
our generation up to the present.
The plays they are to present here
this time are all of the highest or
der. "Candida" is a delightful comedy
of the eternal triangle of husband,
wife, and love-sick poet who woes
her. This complex situation affords
the playwright some very amusing
incidents. Needless to say that the
brilliant Shaw makes the most of
this with his flashes of wit and his
Ibsen's "A Doll's House" is a mas
terpiece. It is a gripping problem
play of modern family life. Ifc ori
ginal production was heralded ill all
the theatres of Europe, and was, an
instantaneous success. It is now re
garded at a classic of modern drama.
Dunsany's "A Night At An Inn,"
is a play of mysterious imagination.
In far off -Araby is the scene."- ft is
a play of terror and of strange
beauty, a masterpiece of its kind. '
Synge's play "In The Shadow of
The Glen," is one of the best of the
Irish plays. It is full of weird
imagery and grim humor, and is sure
to be a favorite. This may also be
said of Lady Gregory's "The Rising
of The Moon," another Irish ptay. It
is one of the most delightful of the
Irish comedies. The wily tramp, who
is also a poet, and who has escaped
from the burly policeman affords a
situation of irresistible comedy.
Seats will be on sale at Eubanks
on Thursday morning, November 17.
By securing a reservation for all
three performances a qonsiderablo
reduction is made to the purchaser.
FRESHMEN PLAY IN WEL-DON.
The freshman eleven left for
Weldon to play the N. C. State
freshman team, being the chief
attraction at the big American
Legion of that point.
The freshman team has
shown remarkable improvement
over past performances. In
the Woodberry game they show
ed a complete reversal of form
and in several scrimmages with
the varsity during the past
week they have shown marked
ability to gain ground and to
hold on the defense.
November 25 and 26, Friday and
Saturday following Thanksgiving are

Elaborate plans are being formed
to make the fall dances the best ever,

dance orchestras in the country, the
Meyer Davis first orchestra being
famous the country over for its dance
music. Meyer Davis himself will be

THE VAMP' PRESENTED
BY GOLDSBDRO ACTORS
Bill Royal' Play Score Hit When
Presented By Goldsboro Home
Bill Royal, captain of last year's
track team, and author of "The
Vamp", one of last year's best folk
play productions, has had two of his
plays produced in Goldsboro recent
ly. "The Vamp" was one of the
plays put on there. The other was
a tragedy -"The Ghost of Lombry."
Both plays were written here in the
course in dramatic composition un
der Professor Koch. The plays were
presented, mostly by local talent, and
under the auspices of the "Woman's
Club" of that place.
Miss Dorothy Greenlaw, who so
ably played the part of the vamp in
the Chapel Hill production, appear
ed in the cast in the same role at
Goldsboro. Carlyle Shepard, who
finished here last year and was cap
tain of the basketball team also play
ed a part in its production.
The newspaper accounts give the
production credit for a very success
ful show. An audience of about five
hundred witnessed the performance.

The labor union as
we know it is not the ideal way to
settle the question, but under exist
ing circumstances, with capital or
ganized as it is, the labor union is
the only way. The organized la

only asking for a voice in the regu
lation of three things wages, hours
and working conditions."
In answer to the objection that
so many foreign names arc found
