CAROLINA FIVE WILL MEET
-i TRINITY TOSSERS AT BYNUM
GYM TOMORROW NIGHT
Bitter Struggle of Last Contest
Gives Promise of Great Fight
TRINITY CHANGES QUINT
Tom Neal May Not Appear in
Opponents Line-up Brooks
or Carter Substituting.
After an eight-day rest the Carolina
basketball tossers will hook up with
Trinity for the second time this season
nt the Bynuni Gynasium tomorrow night,
the nrst contest, which was staged at
Durham, went to Captain McDonald';
men by the score of 20 to 19. Thi;
was a nerve-racking game, and the Blue
and White was forced to go the limit
to win, but with the team playing on
tne nome court the margin of victory
should not be so small.'
Since meeting Carolina two weeks ago
the Trinity team played a number of
games and most of them have been tri
umphs. On her trip through the pied
mont section of North Carolina and
Virginia, Trinity defeated Davidson on
the auditorium court in Charlotte, and
on the following night they took the
fast Statesville Legion team into camp,
The Lynchburg quint was beaten, but
Virginia proved a stumbling block and
Coach Burbnge's men went down in de
feat by the score of 28 to 15.
Trinity's line up Saturday night will
be slightly different from the one that
faced Carolina in the first game. Tom
Neal will not likely be in the game, and
either Brooks or Carter will he Crute's
running-mate at guard. Simpson and
Spikes will take care of the forward
positions and Bullock will be stationed
Carolina has played only two games
since the first Trinity contest. The first
one, with Wake Forest, was a close call
for the Blue and White, but finally
emerged victorious 25 to 23. Then the
Florida quint was completely overwhelm
ed by the score of oO to 14. And if
the players are going such a fast clip
Saturday night, the margin of victory
will be more than one point.
iUonday night the State College five
will be played in Raleigh. Judging from
the previous showing made by the West
Haleigli boys Captain McDonald's men
should have little opposition. State has
lost to every college in the State. Guil
ford, Klon. Davidson, Wake Forest and
Trinity have in turn handed them do-feats.
FRESH FRESHMEN PLAY
Start Early on Soph Methods of Enter
tainment Leave Bad Impression
on High School Students.
In order thnt they may extend to the
class of '27 a warm reception, many
freshmen are already getting practice in
the art of welcoming new men.
Lust week two members of the class
of "2(i were visited by a couple of their
high school "buddies." These boys from
the "old home town" bad heard much
about the terrible sophomore visits, and
the possibility of n call seemed to worry
them very much. They asked many
questions about past raids, and the ans
wers contained much of the old "made
in-Carolina" product known as "bull.'
All this increased their restlessness and
added materially to the causes for stay
ing up to a very late hour.
The hosts wished to entertain their
triends, as well as to get practice "for
future reference"; so they made certain
arrangements and returned to their room
1 he door was securely fastened, the
lights turned out, and after some min-
utes snoring was the only audible sound.
About "three o'clock in the morning'
an alarm clock in a neighboring room
went off; it was promptly smothered;
nd all was quiet once more. About
five minutes later a little noise was made
'n the gutter out side of that ill-fated
room, but the sleepers were too exhaust
ed to lie awakened easily. More forcible
methods had to be nsed ; so a good dump
ing followed. The dazed high school lads
came from under the wreckage, and
found themselves face to face with four
unusually large men. Their worst fears
bad been realized. The "sophs" had

s inspired by the paddles that Pavlowa
would have left the stage had she seen
such superior competition.' Dancing
changed to singing, and this in turn gave

The Psychology department gave the
freshman class a psychological test
Tuesday afternoon. This test was made
compulsory for the freshmen, and con
sisted of an intelligence test, an emot
ional test, and a personality or character
This test, with the execution of the
lust part, although it is new to the Uni
versity, is no new thing. It is used in
practically all the larger schools of the
country, and at Columbia it is one of
the entrance requirements, and is given
more consideration than previous schol
astic work. The last part, the test of
character traits, is a new idea, and
oeing uone more as an experiment to
enable a person to estimate his ability
fairly and accurately.
ltie intelligence test consists of ten
individual tests, such as: the ability to
follow instructions, the ability to pay
close attention to detailed instructions,
the ability to tell the difference between
things apparently alike, mathematical
ability, memory, etc. This test has been
studied and perfected until it is thought
to be the most accurate intelligence test
in use. It gives a very hiirh correlation
to success in studies that is, the ma
jority of those who make high grades
on the test make high grades in studies,
and those who make low grades on the
tests usually make low grades in their

PAPERS ARE INTERESTING
At the regular meeting of the North
Carolina Club Monday night, papers
were read by M. A. James, and W. F.
Somers on "Labor, Capital, and the
Public in North Carolina," and "Tax
ing Corporations and Corporation Stocks
in North Carolina."

University Bearing Down on Students
Feigning Imaginary Ills Students
Warned to Be Careful.
That the popular excuse for cutting

or an imaginary pain, was made evident
y Dr. Abernethy, in Chapel, Moudav

stated tliat lie ceased to be a co-cou-
pirator with lazy students who wished

The verdict of the administrative of
ficers of the University was :
First: That students must report at
the infirmary before an excuse on account
f illness would be granted.
Second : That in case a student is ill
his room, he must send word to Dr.
beruetliy, who will visit him at his
oom and if the illness is such that it
justifiable, he will be excused for ab
sences from classes.
The intent of this regulation is that
no student whom the or has not
seen personally at the time of his ill
ness shall be excused from classes.
In his talk. Dr. Abernethy admonish
ed the students to lake care of their
bodies by "taking no chances" of con
tracting disease. "If you can't be good,"
he said, "at: least try to be careful."
ALUMNI ASSOCIATION HAS
In discussing his subject James point
ed out that the employer and the em
ployee were very much alike, the only
difference beine in education. cloHiino-
and money. Cnpital and labor are con
tinually at strife, and this industrial
strife not only affects the two parties
immediately concerned, but also the pub
lic. Strikes can be attributed to the
hatred that exists between the employer
and the employee. Due to misunder
standing, and each party attempting to
take advantage of the other, the results'
of strikes are well known ; the public
suffers as much if not more than the
two contesting factions.
lue best plans to diminish strikes
are: (1) to guarantee for the employer
against the dread of sickness, unemploy
ment, and death in a poorhouse; (2)
art in the factories; (3) the supplying
of attractive homes for the employees ;
(4) broader social functions for the
employees, and (5) education. These
steps will tend toward getting a larger
amount of production from the employ
ees. Another plan that will eliminate
the clan hatred is the Economy Divi
dend plan, which will give the em
ployees a personal interest in their
works. But when strikes occur, they
should be settled by due process of law
therefore a compulsory law should be
passed to deal with these labor disputes
in order to protect the public and give
capital and labor a practical method of
settling their differences.
The other paper, read by W. F. Soin-
ers, dealt with taxing the corporations
and corporative stocks iu the slate. The
paper may be summarized as follows :
North Carolina has been and still is to
large extent, principally agricultural.
but within the last half century the
development of industry and business in
the state has been remarkable. . North
Carolina leads the southern states in al
most every detail as a factory state, and
with the steady yearly advance in the
further development of her potential re
sources will become a great industrial
The corporation has superceded the
other forms of business organization,
and now the question of taxation of cor
porations and corporative stocks held by
individuals has arisen. There is much
debating whether or not corporation
stock held by individuals should be taxed.
It seems that the North Carolina su
preme court was right in defeating the
plan advocated by Chief Justice Walter
Clark to tax the individual's corporation
stock. This would cause double tax
ation on this stock, since the corpora
tion is required to pay taxes on all its
capital stocks and machinery.
MASTER OF TECHNIQUE
For the first time in its history, Chapel
Hill on Monday night offered its music
lovers the opportunity of hearing one
of the world's gree.t.st pianists, when
Arthur Shattuck played in Gerrard Hall
before a discoiiragingly small audience.
The musician held the major part of his
handful of attentive listeners almost spell
bound for nearly two hours.
Mr. Shattuck has not only a mastery
of the technique and interpretation of
music, but also the good judgment of
moulding his program to suit his hearers.
He largely disregarded the printed pro
gram, and substituted many numbers
of a more popular appeal. '
The first group consisted of "Prelude"
and "Fugue D Minor" (Bach), "Ron
deau des Songes" (Rameau), and "Air
Ballet" (Gluck). The "Rondeau des
Songes" was especially well received, as
also was the short "Air Ballet," played
with the light touch which is so charac
teristic of Mr. Shattuck's playing.
The second group was comprised en
tirely of Chopin. It was here that the
artist was at his greatest. In fact, the
audience was so stirred by the "Third
Etude," that the spirit of "more Chopin'
was very evident. Mr. KUattuck re
sponded with "Impromptu in A Flat,"
which, he explained, he had found in
manuscript form while touring in Fin
land. The other selections from Chopin
were "Ballet F Minor" and "Valse.
Mr. Shattuck next gave two short
numbers from Palmgren, "Isle of Shad
ows and "Bird Song." Both were un
usual, and the first was especially im
pressive with its weird chords.
After the playing of "Impromptu"
(Schubert), the program was given a
more lively character by the playing of
"The Lame Witch" and "The Strolling
Musicians." The latter created in one's
mind the image of a street musician as
he fiddled to the delight of the admiring
children. Mr. Shattuck completed his
intended program in the same spirit with
"The March of the Wooden Soldier,"
by a modern English composer, and "The
lie finished his program and left the
platform, but his unsatiated audience re
fused to leave their seats until he had
played four more encores.
Beginning with a whimsical "Valse"
of Brahms, he continued with a narra
tive picture, "St Francis Walking on
the Waves." This was one of the most
popular members of the concert. WThile
St. Francis is on the sea. a storm ap
proaches. Fearing for his life, he sets
up a prayer for deliverance, which is
answered by the abating storm. This
Mr. Shattuck brought out absolutely.
One could feel the approach of the
storm, surging billows, the prayer, and
the sudden calm.
Another encore was the "Libestrum"
of Listz. Its announcement was met by
a flurry of applause iu recognition and
delight, and its playing was followed by
greater applause for the superb playing
of an old favorite.
