CO-ED EXPRESSES THANKS
Committee Report on Various Phases
of College Activities Many
. Changes Planned.
At its third regular meeting of
the year, last Monday night, the
Campus Cabinet discussed a number
of matters pertaining to student life
and activities. All members were
present except Thomas Turner and
Sam Cantey, junior class president
and representative, respectively.
Miss Adeline Denham, the co-ed
member of the cabinet, expressed the
appreciation of the Woman's Associa
tion for the seat given them in that
body. In reply, Jacobi assured her
that the cabinet was glad to wel
come her as the representative of a
group of students hitherto unrepre
sented in campus affairs.
The appeal for European student
relief was explained by Mr. Comer,
and it was agreed that the cabinet
would engineer the drive if it should
be undertaken on the campus. It
seems that there is suffering of a
very acute nature among students
at all the European universities, and
American students are requested to
contribute to their relief.
Phipps made a report of football
games played and those scheduled in
the class athletic series. Robert Fra
zier, who had been appointed as a
committee of one to investigate the
bulletin board situation, reported
that they were not quite finished.
He was given authority to act for
the cabinet in cooperation with the
chapel committee in making any ar
A complaint concerning the inef
ficiency of organization in campus
activities generally was voiced by G.

body. He asked the cooperation of

The practice of walking across the
grass was condemned by the cabinet,
and Porter promised to have some
one, preferably Dr. Coker, speak in
chapel on the subject. Mr. Comer
mentioned the . need of labeling the
streets and numbering the houses of
Chapel Hill. Phipps was appointed
to investigate and report on the sit
uation. It was decided to invite each of
the professional schools to elect a
representative to the cabinet in place
of the one representative at large
from the three schools combined. Por

THE SELF-HELP MAN CHAL
LENGES US TO MATCH
Bang! We're off!
The Red Cross Roll Call is in
full swing. The college, the
town, the county, Carrboro,
the schools, the churches, and
the colored people have all lined
up in organization and spirit.
The students and townspeople
have in large numbers volun
teered to make the roll call in
every room and at every table
in the college community.
One main thing stands in the
way of the roll call-general
hard times and the particular
fact of little available money
in the middle of the month.
This fact brings me to my point.
The harder the money is to get,
the ;more it hurts us to give,
the greater the sacrifice our en
listment in the Red Cross rep
resents, that much more will
the roll call be a roll call of
manhood rather than money, a
roll call of the spirit of men
who will work overtime to earn
a dollar to send into the gaunt
places of the world where chil
dren hold out their emaciated
hands in hope.
Let us take up the example
of the many self-help men who
know what a dollar means and
be the first to rush to the side
of the children of Europe. The
Red Cross means sacrifice. Edu
cation without sacrifice is train
Men of the University, it is
up to us to match the buttons
we already see on the lapels of
many selfrhelp men buttons
of sacrifice on men of sacrifice!
We cannot stand aside. Bring

I Comparison of the present eys

in chapel Tuesday morning. "The

j Dr. Greenlaw humorously defined

'as that which is delicately conscious

but which is, at the same time, skill

M05ER GIVES STATISTICS
ON STATE FARM TENANCY
Increase of Farm Tenancy One of
Concern, Declares Moser in Talk
to N. C. Club.
The increasing tenancy problem
in North Carolina was interestingly
discussed Monday night in a report
by A .M. Moser on the subject, "The
Landless Farmer in North Carolina,"
at a meeting of the North Carolina
club, which is this year making a
study of farm and home tenancy in
the state and nation. Farm tenancy,
it was shown by Mr. Moser, has been
steadily on the increase, and this
fact together with the social and
economic conditions accompanying
tenancy make this a problem of much
Every census taken in North Car
olina has shown farm tenancy to be
increasing in this state. The per
centage of tenancy has steadily
climbed until in 1920, the time of the
last census, 43.5 per cent., or nearly
half of our farmers were tenants.
In this year we had 16,038 more
farms in the state than in 1910, but
had 10,170 more farms operated by
tenants and only 6,056 more farms
operated by farm owners.
Farm tenancy in North Carolina is
found mainly in the cotton and to
bacco producing sections. It has
been found that in proportion as a
county produces cotton or tobacco,
just in that proportion will it be
a tenant area. Scotland county, the
leading cotton county of the state
for its size, has four-fifths of its
farmers tenants, or four out of every
five of its farms cultivated by ten
ants. Edgecombe county, with 79.4
per cent., and Greene, with 78.2 per
cent., are close competitors.
The economic and social results
The Y. M. C. A. has secured Dr.
H. B. Wright of Yale University,
historian and author, to conduct a
series of personal talks in behalf of
student volunteer work. Dr. Wright
will work with small groups only
because of doctor's orders prohibit
ing the use of the lung powers, which
will mean that he will be kept very
busy while on the Hill, for he will
be here for only two days, Sunday
and Monday, November 20 and 21.
For years Dr. Wright was one of
the most popular professors at Yale,
and was several times offered the
chair of history at that institution.
He is a close personal friend of a
larger number of students than any
other man in his work. He is a spe
cialist in personal work, has studied
the influence in friendship and his
work here will be in this connection.

G000 FRESH ELEVEN
Team Has Developed and Made Fine
Showing Has Excellent Chance
to Win From Virginia.
(Continued on Page Four.)
Freshmen's victory over the State
College Yearlings in Weldon Friday
raises high Coich Morrison's hopes
for a victory over the Virginia first
year team in Charlottesville next
Saturday. Tha ire3hman coach was
greatly pleased with the showing
made by his team Friday, and be

The record for the first year re

victories and two defeats. Bingham
and Davidson Scrubs were the con
quering elevens, while Woodberry

have succumbed to defeats at the
hands of Morrison's men.
Working under the handicap of a
several weeks late start, and with
inexperienced but promising calibre,
Coach Morrison has developed a team
of some prominence. A slashing at

line is the constituents of the freeh

Meisenheimer for Juniors and Ran
som and Murchison for Seniors
Show Up Best.
Playing open football and on the
defensive the greater part of the
game the Juniors held the Seniors
to a 0-0 tie list Monday on Emer
son field. Meisenheimer, star full
back for the Juniors, made the major
gains, while Ranson and Murchison
were the outstanding men for the
Seniors. f ;
The Juniors received the ball on
the kickoff and carried it straight
down the field to the Seniors' 20
yard line. They lacked the. final
punch and the ball went over on a
fumble. From then on the game
was a see saw from one side to the
other, fumbles occurring frequently.
The only punt of the game was
made by Meisenheimer. Large gains
were made by both sides. Straight
football was. used, and forward passes
were oftsn used by the Seniors.
The majority of the passes for the
Seniors were from Ranson to Murchi
son and large gains' were made by
them via this route. The Juniors,
however, were alert and succeeded in
intercepting several passes and mak
ing good gains. The Seniors com
pleted two out of six, while the
Juniors completed only one.
Due to darkness, the last two
quarters were forced to be two min
ute ones. The only real work of
the game was during the last part
of the game when the Seniors took
the ball from their 20-yard line to
the 40-yard line of their opponents.
Honeycutt played a good end, and
Sparger and Wall showed excellence
at their positions.

With the purchase of practically
$5,000 worth of new machinery for
the cleaning, pressing, and tumbling
of clothes, the University laundry is
opening another field of activity. It
is the purpose of the University offi
cials to offer the student first class
work in all these branches, and to
clean their clothes in a scientific way,
in order that the fabric may not be
injured, and in order that he may
have a real first class job done when
he sends his clothes out to be cleaned
The financing of the matter will
be on much the same plan as that
now employed by the laundry for the
washing. A deposit will probably be
made by the student, allowing him
to have a certain number of suits
pressed a week, and a certain num
ber of suits cleaned per month, and
at a much cheaper rate than Uni

The system to be employed in the
cleaning of the clothes will be the
adoption cf a chemical formula used
by all the leading American dry
cleaners. The formula is the prop
erty of the National Dry Cleaners'
Association of America, and is used
by members of that organization
only. Only these men who are able
to pass a rigid chemical examina
tion are allowed to use the formula.
Mr. Paulsen has this formula, and
he will use it in the cleaning of the
Mr. Pnulsen stated that the new
