COMPLETE SCORE IS 26-5
The Carolina wrestling team ended
the 1923 season by winning from N. C.
State by the score of 26 to 5 at Raleigh
Thursday night. Carolina won every
match except the light heavyweight
tilt. Osborne of State won from Burke
of Carolina in six minutes and 56 sec
onds. Mathesou, Waters, Hagan and
Poindexter won by falls, while Vick
and Schwartz won on points.
In the first bout Schwartz of Caro
lina and Sherman of State, the feather
weights, hooked up and whon the nine-
minute period was up the decision went
Sherman tried to pull the iron-man
stunt and wrestle Hagan, Carolina's
129-pound class man also, but he was
not equal to the occasion and Hagan
won with a head-scissors and a body
The lightweight bout, in which Vick
of Carolina and Lewis of State battled,
was won by Vick on points after 15
minutes of wrestling. This match was
rather slow during the first nine min
utes, but in the extra periods the affair
livened up a bit, and the fans were
treated to some real wrestling.
In the 149-pound class Mathesou of
Carolina defeated Memory of State aft
er six minutes of furious wrestling.
"The grapplers went at each other in
this bout with more pep than had been
shown up to this point.
In the middleweight clash Waters of
Carolina was too much for Turuage, the
State representative in the class. Wa
ters won after four minutes and 58
seconds. At this point the score was
standing Carolina 21, State 0.
The light heavyweight tilt with Burke
of Carolina and Osborne of State con
tending, proved to be the only bout in
which the State team was able to make
a good showing. Osborne won in six
minutes and 56 seconds.
The final clash of the nveet was be
tween the heavyweights, Poindexter of
Carolina and Beatty of State. Poin
dexter tipped the scales at ISO, while
Beatty weighed 1S2. Poindexter won

CHAPEL HILL WEEKLY
MAKES ITS APPEARANCE
The Chapel Hill Weekly made its
first appearance last week. This new
publication is edited by Louis Graves,
a professor in the -Kn'glish- department
of the University. .-The first issue -was
attractive, well made up, and carried a
great deal of both local and county
news. The editor says that the news
paper is essentially a couaty paper; it
intends to give the public a digest of
all' happenings of interest to the citi
zens of Chapel. Hill and Orange county.
Pho society won the sophomore end
of the annual fresh-soph debate held in
Di hall last Saturday night by 'a two-
toone vote. J. M. Saunders and L. T

side of the 'query: "Resolved That
there should be a constitutional amend
nient passed providing for federal regu
lation of child labor." W. J. Cocke
Jr., and E. L. Justus, of the Di, upheld
The affirmative contended that fed
oral regulations were necessary because
of the low standards in most of the
states, the national ..character of the
Economic problem, and. the physical and
sociological detriment of the lack of
such a law. V. J. Cocke made good
use of available statistics to prove the
first point, and pleaded for the amend'

of the low physical and mental standard
of the American people. '' One-third of
our men were unfit to figh," said Mr.

The negative, on the other hand, con

Although Failing to Come Through Southern Tournament, Carolina
Quint Establishes Enviable Record Undefeated During
Regular Season Catholic University Ranks Second.
(By R. C. MAULTSBY)
Carolina failed to win the Southern tournament, but Captain Mc
Donald's quint captured South Atlantic honors, in many respects
the equal of the Dixie title. There were several exceptionally strong
teams in the field, but the Tar Heels exceeded all others in consistent
playing and were nut defeated during the regular season. Ten con
tenders for South Atlantic supremacy fell before the versatile attack
of the Blue and White.
Catholic University, of Washington, D. C, had a powerful five that defeated
Navy 21 to 19, but lost to Virginia 29 to 28. The Orange and Blue was over
whelmed by Washington and Lee and Carolina, but in turn administered a 36-17
licking to the fast Generals. Virginia Poly won two of three games from
V. M. I., defeated Virginia 22 to 18
but wen( down before Trinity and
Washington and Lee. The Methodists
split even with AVake Forest and Vir
ginia, but lost twice to Carolina. Bank-
ing the teams would indeed be a hard
job, after Catholic U. and the cham
pionship Tar Heel team were disposed
The selection of an All-South Atlan
tie team is likewise a difficult task,
Complete records were not availabl
so many of the players must be judged
on a comparative basis entirely. After
considering the merits of the various
candidates for the mythical selection;
the following were decided upon: Lake
(Washington and Lee) and Carmichael
(Carolina), forwards; Witt (Lynchburg
College), center; Rhodes (V. P. I.) and
Lynch (Catholic University), guards,
Lake was the outstanding offensive
star of the Generals, being their high
est point getter. Carmichael has been
shifted back to forward in order to
utilize the remarkable scoring ability
of Witt, the Lynchburg center. This
seems to be the logical arrangement, as
the former is more valuable at forward
Rhodes, V. P. I. captain, deserves one
of the guard positions without a doubt.
as his all-around playing as excep
tional. Lynch and McDonald were
about equal in defensive strength, but
the former's accuracy in shooting both
field and foul goals makes him the fa
vorite "of the two."
A second all-star quint composed of
Green (Carolina) and Stanley (Virgin
ia), forwards; Brittinghani (V. P. I.)
center, ami McDonald (Carolina) anc
Ryder (V. M. I.) guards, would be at
most as strong as the first, if not as
brilliant. Crute, Spikes and Simpson
of Trinity; Stringfield, of Wake Forest;
Carroll, of V. P. I., and Hines, of Wash
ington and Lee, were players that de
serve a great deal of credit for their
high class work.
CAPTAIN-ELECT WINTON GREEN
With Coach Fetzer back on the Hill
baseball practice has begun in earnest
The squad has been working out under
the direction of Captain Morris for sev
eral days and it is expected to be in
shape for the opening of the season in
about three weeks. There will be an
experimental period in which Coach
Fetzer must decide upon possibly two
infield positions and select his outfield
"Casey" Morris is regarded as a fix
ture behind the bat, while Sim Wrenn,
JJavidson catcher in 1921, is one of the
best in the state. McGee, Starling and
Bonner are also available to assist in
the backstopping. "Mule" Shirley will
not receive much competition at first
base nor will McDonald at short. , If
McLean answers the call of the ' ' Great
American Game" he will of course be
stationed at his old position, second
Third base will be a problem to fa.ee.
Fred Morris is gone and it will a hard
matter to find a man capable 'of 'filling
his shoes. Bonner, who played left
field last season, has held down the hot
corner in years gone by, and might be
just the fellow for the place. Griffin,
of last year's squad, is also a likely
candidate for the position. Jimmy
Ragsdale, Preston Edwards, and McGee
are experienced infielders as well.
Ed Sweetman and Bonner are the
old men to return in the outfield. If
the former is switched to the inner
works, two capable fly chasers will
have to be found to cavort around in
the gardens. Gibson, of last year's
freshman team, is a clever fielder, a fair
batter, and a. fast man on the paths,
and will have to be reckoned with be
fore the positions are finally settled.
The acquisition of Frank Coxe, star
Yale left handed pitcher, will probably
strengthen the twirling department con
siderably. Bryson will probably have his
best season and pitch a large share of
the games as he is the only tried right
hander on the staff. Allen Moore is
being counted on to come through with
some fine, pitching before the year is

Trinity and Wake Forest to Be Met by
Carolina First Year Word
The freshmun intercollegiate debate
in which Carolina, Trinity and Wake
Forest will take part, is to be held on
the night of May 5. The preliminaries
for this debate will be held on Wednes
day, March 28. Two teams will be
selected, each to be composed of two
men and an alternate. Only freshmen
are eligible, but any man in that class
may try out, as this debate is not re
stricted to the societies. The query
reads: "Resolved That the issuance
of tax exempt securities should be for
bidden by amendment to the Federal
The team chosen to uphold the nega
tive for Carolina will go to Wake For
est, there to meet Trinity's affirmative.
At the same time the Carolina affirma
tive will meet the Wake Forest nega
tive at Trinity College, while Trinity's
negative is debating the Wake Forest
affirmative at Chapel Hill.
Norman Shopard's freshman basket
ball team made a splendid record this
season and upheld the reputation estab
lished by Carolina quintets in the past.
Only two contests were lost; one to
the Virginia freshmen, and the other
to Durham high school, while five games
were won on tho trip to Asheville and
through Virginia, which includod sev
eral prep school teams of high calibre.
Captain Jack Cobb, former Wood
berry Forest star, was the highest indi
vidual scorer, making ovor half of the
team's points. He made 84 fiold goals
and 106 foul goals out of 177 attempts,
and his dribbling, passing and jumping
in couter were frequently praised by
Billy Devin, who is an all-around ath
lete, played a fine game at roving guard.
Ho was especially good on shooting
from the corner of the court, a difficult
position. Buchanan demonstrated his
worth as a back court player time and
again, and was ever on the alort to de
tect open plays.
Yelverton, Johnson and Milstead al
ternated at the forward positions. The
first two wore unusually fast dribblers
and led their guards a merry chase in
every game. Johnson scored 30 field
goals and Yolverton was credited with
27. Billy Devin tiod tho latter in bas

With a break but a bang, the annual
Caiblina Smoker took, the campus by
such a storm last Friday night that it
caused President Chaso to pronounce it
"the best Carolina Smoker we have
ever had." Admirably port raying
"some favorito spot-lights in Carolina
lifsl from 1792 to 1950," a well-planned
and well-prepared program was execut
ed .very neatly, debarring several un
avoidable delays which "gave a tire
some and long drawn-out aspect to the
affair at times. -
An Ye Grande Toastniaster and Mas
ter ' of Ceremonies, J. P. ("Pike")
Trotter, acting as the first student ever
to preside at the smoker, had the situ
ation thoroughly , in hand throughout
the evening, even at tho time when his
opening address presenting Mr. Horace
H. Williams introduced. ice-cream and
a jazz piece by the Boll Weevil Orehes
trn, with which the professor was un
able to compete.
The ice-cream iinii nuisic being con
sumed, Professor Williams arose and
presented tho first thrco "skits" of
University history; namely, tho periods
1795, 1812 and 1848. "Tho really big
things for tho University," said Mr.
Williams, "are ahead; and I wonder,
I wonder, if the South is going to pre
serve tho splendor -of her past."
1792 to 1848
Opening the first era of Carolina stu
dent pastimes, the sophomores, copying
a scene nearly word for word from Dr.
Battle's "History of the University,"
upon which most of the "skits" were
based, presented an " ole time cotton
pickin'." Several of the 40 students
in "the University at that time '(1.795):
ran oft' to one of these enjoyable af
fairs, but -unfortunately were caught
by. Dr. Kerr of the faculty in tho midst
of a Virginia reed. In spite. of the plead
ings of the young ladies for clemency,
tho hard-hearted professor forced the
students - to return to the' Hill and
"shipped" tho first student for refus
ing to nnolouize. The scene was well
presented and well understood.
For 1812, the freshmen gave a sun
rise chapel exercise in which the poor
studes were admonished for their past
negligencies and "bull session" and
advised to do better in the future. The
scene ended with a race for rooms, the
choice going to the swiftest. As Presi
dent Swain, L. T. Bledsoe made a good
Charlie Chaplin. Tho anachronisms,
however, were well taken.
