Be Held Here in April
President-elect Julian R. Allsbrook
returned from Knoxville, Tennessee,
Monday morning, where he attended
the conference of the Southern Federa
tion of College Students, held at the
University of Tennessee. He reports
that it was a success from every view
point, and accomplished a great deal
toward bringing the larger southern col
leges and universities to a clearer un
derstanding of the problems facing stu
dent government, athletics, publications
and other collogo activities.
Allsbrook, in behalf of Carolina, ask
ed that the next meeting of the Fed

tion will be here on the Friday and
Saturday after April 20, 1924. At the
same time, a conference of all the deans
of students of the major southern col
leges will be held here.
Tho Federation was called to order
at 10 o'clock Friday morning by its
president, Al H. Staten of Georgia Tech.
The first thing up was a discussion and
adoption of a constitution. At the aft
ernoon meeting the problems of under
graduate government were brought be
fore the assemblage, discussion of which
continued through the Saturday morn
ing meeting. Mr. Correll, of Washing
ton and Lee, led an interesting discus
sion on the honor system of student
government. He explained the system
as it works at Washington and Lee,
where it is considered to be on the firm
est, basis of any southern institution.
College publications received a great
deal of attention from the delegates.
After a live round-table discussion, they
went on record as unanimously favor
ing unceusored publications in every
Friction between schools, especially
as regards athletics, was brought up.
The Federation denounced betting on
games, and advocated clean and good
sportsmanship between schools engaged
In nthletic contests. They desire to
place all southern colleges on friendly
terms with their sister institutions.

No Smoker for Juniors Who Have Not

All juniors who have not as yet paid

attend the class smoker to be held May
15 at Swain Hall. This was the drastic
action taken by the executive commit
tee at their meeting Tuesday night in
an effort to deal with the troublesome
and serious class dues problem. The
class has several bills of largo amounts
to meet, and unless sufficient funds are
secured a similar wrangle as that of
last year in connection with the Yack

Hlnsted were the hopes of L. V. Hug
gins Wednesdny when Mayor Koberson
refused to allow him to continue the
raffling off of a perfectly good, though
slightly used, Ford automobile (?).
anous motives have been ascribed to
the owner for wishing to dispose of his
wonderful piece of machinery. Some
have gone so far as to say that he had
fulfilled his desire for travel by the
Ford route, but it is hard to believe such
a thing of the man who made the ex
pedition into Georgia during the Easter
holidays which has brought him the
recognition of the whole campus. More
likely than this is that he proceeded to
judge other people by himself and real
ized that this is the time of year that
the wander-lust begins to develop, and
immediately he set out to profit by the
restlessness of his fellow students. Tlmt
he is a good judge of human emotions
is proven by the number of chances
which he was able to dispose of.
Everything in this lottery was to have
been carried off with the last word in
sportsmanship. The chances were sold
for two bits npiece, but the muuificieut
owner, not wishing to make too great a
profit, allowed the thankful students to
buy five whole chances on winning the
first Ford car ever produced for only
one dollar. And what could be fairer
than the proposed plan of deciding the
winner? A huge round wheel, resembling
in form ami contents a ferris wheel, was
to be placed between the four dorms of
the quadrangle, carrying duplicates of all
the chances sold. When the eloquent
salesman gave the word a disinterested
party was to step up, holding in his
hand a pistol of mighty calibre, and fire
somewhere in the vicinity of the wheel
as it wns rotating. This method was
to be continued until a bullet struck
somewhere within the disc or until all
the ammunition was cxended in vain
attempts. The lucky mini in this near
roulette was to be the one who owned
a ticket which corresponded to that which
the bullet came nearest to hitting on the
wheel. What a pity it is that this truly
sportsmanlike plan was not able to be
carried out, even at the risk of life and
limb to those who happened to be any
where near the vicinity of the quadrangle
on Wednesday afternoon !
That "Barnum was right" was proved
by the long line of those who assembled
outside Swain Hall after supper to re
ceive their money back after the an
nouncement by Hoggins at supper that
it would be refunded. Some looked
whole looked as if they were glad to be
out of it with nothing more than the
money that they bad put iu. It is
strange how man repents after having
done a foolish thing. Of course every
one had a good chance, there were only
300 chnnces sold. But just the same
they were glad to be free at so little
ety Yack bills is apt to occur, when the
president and troasurer were hailed in downhenrted sollie looked glad, but the
the magistrate's court in an effort by
Manngor Phipps to collect his money.
At this meeting tho annual elections
for the senior class president will bo
held, and therefore it is necessary that
a large number be present in order to
have a representative vote. The treas
urer, G. Y. Ragsdale, is conducting a
campaign for funds this wock during
which a thorough canvass will be made
of all negligent members. The treas
urer is being assisted in this drive by
the members of the executive commit
tee. Although the details of the smoker
program have not been arranged, the
committee is working on an original and
attractive schedule of evonts. This
will bo the most important and subse
quently the last meeting of the year,
and undoubtedly a large number will
1" present at the farewell party.
R. B. Anderson will give a paper on
the timely subject, "Prison Reform in
North Carolina," at tho regular meet
ing of the North Carolina Club at 7:30
Monday night in Phillips Hall.

SPEECH WELL RECEIVED
For the first time in twelve years, the
successful candidates for membership in
Phi Beta Kappa, national scholastic fra
ternity, were announced at a meeting
thrown open to the public, Tuesday even
ing, in Gerrard Hall. Rev. O. M. Voor
hees, national secretary of the United
Chapters of Phi Beta Kappa, delivered
an address iu honor of the occasion.
Uev. Mr. Voorhees told of the organi
zation and history of the fraternity from
the time it was first organized at Wil
liam and Mary " cbllege, by a group of
nine young men, until tho present time.
The basis of the organization as conceiv
ed by its charter members was that of a
desire for wisdom, and it was from this
idea that its motto. "Philosophy the Guide
of Life." was formulated. The speaker
reviewed the growth of the organization
from the very beginning until the pres
ent time. In less than two years, there
were over fifty members. Soon after
words there were chapters instnl eel at
Vale and Harvard, and at present there
are ninety nine chapters and several
thousands of living members. In 18.S1
the idea of forming a council was ac
cepted and the United Chapters of Phi
Beta Kappa was formed.
In dealing with the purpose and aims
of the organization, the speaker stated
that the whole idea of I 'hi Beta Kappa
embodied in fraternity, fellowship, co
operation and intellectual nltiunnienl.
Phi Beta Kappa does not attempt to
make its members conform to any set of
ideas, and the organization has often had
men who held opposite views on great
public questions. In conclusion, the
speaker said, "The patriotic spirit of
Phi Beta Kappa is tlmt of doing greater
things for the world, and you men will
help to accomplish these ends."
After the speech, the successful can
didates were announced. The candidates
were then conducted to the "Y" club
rooms where the initiation ceremonies

Tho Tar Heels are slated to wind up
their extensive invasion of tho South
tomorrow, when they meet Georgia
Tech for tho second time. A largo
crowd of Atlantans and Tech students
will be on hand to witness the contest
and root for Coach Clay 's Yellow Jack
ets, but Carolina will not be without
supportors also, for there aro many rep
resentatives from the Old North Stato
in the Georgia capital. Following the
team's return from Atlanta, comes the
Wako Forest game hero Tuosday and
the second State College battle Satur
day of next week.
Coach Fotzer's outfit opened the
week's schedule with a 3-3 tie against
Auburn at Montgomery, Ala., Monday
afternoon. With tho Tigers holding a
3 to 2 lead in the ninth inning, the Tar
Heels produced the tying run on two
hits, a sacrifice, and an infield single.
Neither team could score in tho tenth,
so tho game was called to enable both
teams to catch trains.
Bill Ferebee went the entire route
on tho mound, after resting but one day
from the Virginin game, and twirled a
splendid game, He struck out seven
men, allowed but six hits, and had al
most perfect control. Moulton was

The Tar neols started off with a rush.
Shirley reached first on an error by

an equal number of runs, when Grif

Judge Winston, the principal speaker
at an informal gathering of the Sigma
Upsilon, national literary fraternity,
and invited guests Monday night at
the Episcopal parish house provided an
entertaining evening for the local lit
erati with a rambling discourse on his
travels, the University in former years,
a brief dash into literature and philoso
phy, all interspersed with a few humor
Following this, Robert Gray, the for
mer "Ring Lardner" of the University
and now grinding out copy for tho
News and Observer, gave a harrowing
account of the poverty and wear and
tear of the newspaper game. He end
od his speech with a pointed suggestion
that the embryonic writers present
abandon their literary aspirations for
something more profitablo though less
alluring, such as the grocery business.
Professors McKir, Van llecke, Tlibbard
and Booker were called upon for re- ,
marks, and they responded in the char
acteristic manner of professors on such
occasions. R. S. Pickens read a short
paper about himself ending up with
the remark, "I'm not much account
anyway," and was given hearty ap
plause. A dutch supper had been planned by
the refreshment committee, Pike Trot
ter, but in some manner a miscue was
made, for the plebeian menu of pick
les, cheese, crackers and Bevo was serv
ed on the suffering group. At Mr. Trot
ter's suggestion that the faculty take
home the remaining pickles for their
babies, the professors readily agreed
and each tucked a delicious pickle un
der his arm before leaving.
