22 to 0.
By MALCOLM M. YOUNG
Father Football reigned in all his
glory Saturday afternoon at Emer
son Field when Carolina opened the
1023 gridiron season with a 22 to 0
victory over Wake Forest. It wras
the first portion of the students two
course football dinner, to be served
this season by our schedule makers,
and that course was devoured by the
fans in a ravenous manner.
Carolina's 50-piece band was on
hand to make things hum. Wake
Forest was present in all of her Bap
tist splendor. Good-looking girls and
good-looking men were present. Bad
looking girs and bad-looking men
were also present.
The chief attraction was the ran.e.
Carolina exhibited great strength on
e)id runs and off-tacke plays, aid
used forward passes to considerable
sidvantage. In "Rabbit" Bonner,
'ho is the best advertisement for a
solid rubber ball factory we have
ever seen, a backfield star of first
magnitude came truly into his own.
Time after time Bonner bounced his
bony through and around Wake For
est's weary ends and tacklers, for
short gains, for long gains, and for
Carolina. He was the hardest man
to tackle on Emerson Field, and ex
hibited 142 pounds of energy, fear
lessness, and general ah, er! yes,
"guts" in gobfuls.
Although George Sparrow, Caro
lina's scintillating backfield star, was
taken out of the game with a broken
leg, a misfortune which undoubtedly
will be felt, it gave Emmett Under
wood a chance to make goou, and
Emmett made good with a bang.
Sparrow made several long gains and
starred in his usual fashion. Bonner
and Underwood, however, thrilled
Tar Heel supporters with their won
derful work and presented high hopes
for the future.
As for Wake Forest, the Baptists
are far better than they were last
season. They possessed a good back

"Goat" Randolph did not gain much
ground, but he ran pretty interfer

covery of fumbles.
The University and Chapel Hill
are going to be assured of one of the
purest water supplies in the State.
As a means to the end, arrangements
are being made whereby Mr. L. I.
Lassiter and Mr. A. R. Chase will to
in charge of the water analysis lab
oratory during the year. They will
make all the usual tests on the water
supply. These will include the daily
tests for total bacteria in the raw
water, in the water as it comes from
the various purification processes and
in the water as it comes from the
tap. Daily tests are also madj for
the purpose of special bacteria which
are indicators of contamination. O
ther daily tests include test for al
kilinity, carbon dioxide content, and
hydrogen-ion concentration in both
the raw and filtered water.
The results of these tests will be
used in governing the application of
chemicals used in purifying the wa
ter. Tests are also made at least
once a week to determine the amount
of chlorine and also of the amount
of "hai'dness" in the water. The
water as it comes to the filter plant
carries from one hundred to several
hundred bacteria per cubic centime
ter usually. As it goes to the con
sumer, there are rarely more than
from two to five bacteria per cubic
Messrs. Lassiter and Chase have
had experience in similar work in
some of the best water plants labor
atories in the State and under direc
tion of officials of the State Board of
Health. These men worked in these
plants during their junior year as
co-operative students from the School
of Engineering. This is one of the
very valuable results from the co-operative
system which gives the stu
dents practical experience along the
technical lines, this being co-ordinai-ed
with their courses here at the

ten or fifteen minute vesper ser
vices every evening at seven o'clock
in Gerrard Hall. They will be con

of a short devotional service with
no long speeches.
It is perhaps not quite correct to
call this plan "new", for it was tried

great day in the University's his
tory the day when Carolina history
had its beginning in the memorable
year of 1793 when the cornerstone
of the Old East building was laid.
Numerous prominent Alumni will

Plans to Make Trip to Washing
ton Sometime in the Near
Dean Royster spoke in chapel Mon
day morning about the post office
situation. He, in behalf of the stu
dents of the University, is making
an effort to alleviate the situation as
soon as possible. He stated that be
fore any action could be taken at all
an inspector from Washington
would have to be sent here to inspect
the post office and make a report to
the Post Office Department. After
this no action can be taken until
Congress, which meets in December,
appropriates a sum of money for this
Mr. Royster will go to Washing
ton in the near future to try to prsh
the matter through as quickly as
possible. He will endeavor, with the
aid of the North Carolina senators
and representatives, some of whom
are acquainted with the urgent need
here, to obtain a special Presidential
Order to enlarge the post office here,
f he can succeed in doing this, it
will eliminate a great deal of gov
ernment red tape and consequently
jet the desired results much quicker.
However, at best, it will be several
months before any improvements can
At present, the best way to ligh
ten the situation, he suggests, vould
be to inaugurate some system of de
livering the mail to the dormitories.
This, however, would entail a heavy
responsibility since the goverrment
is held accountable for all mail, es
pecially money letters, etc., until it is
lelivered to the proper persons.
New Men are Victims of an old
Time but ever worked
A humorous discussion serious to
incoming Freshmen members in ad
dition to the initiation ceremonies,
provided the topic of general inter
est at the meeting of the Philanthro
pic Assembly Saturday night.
It all arose over the fact that sev
eral neophytes, in unusual excitement
due probably to the unaccustomed
places and positions in which they
found themselves, were so rash as in
some instances to use one profane
word, and in other instances to vio
late humorously rules of decorum
not at all fitting for solemn literary
society meetings. Several members
were "fined" five dollars; others, as
low as two dollars and a half.
But the fines did not end here.
Horror of horrors, George Ragsdale,
whose big feet had tripped many a
neophyte lacking nimbleness, pro
posed that the fines be doubled! The
freshmen were helpless. Fines of
ten dollars for acts lacking proper
decorum did not at all appeal to
their sense of humor. At once they
rushed to their feet and protested.
In numerous round-about ways, not
exhibiting timidity when their pock
etbooks were threatened, they plead
ed, implored, and supplicated the
society not to allow Ragsdale's hein
ous and vicious motion to get bayond
the talking stage.
The matter was finally settled
when the fines were turned over to
the Appellate Committee (David Liv
ingston Ward, Chairman.) The
chairman was absent, but will doubt
less have to settle with the Frosh
pleas for mercy before the fines can
be erased from the Assembly archives.
The ruse had worked. Freshmen
talked with vehemence. Speaker
George Hampton pictured Carolina
victorious in intercollegiate debates
of the future, and the meeting ad
journed, agreed that by a very sim
ple expedient closed-mouthed, timid
freshmen, had protested far and wide
before they had been Thi men for a

Assembly, made his inaugural ad
dress. He reminded the members
present that while Phi had won four

ORDER OF GRAIL
TO GIVE DANCE
Grail's First Dance of Season
Will Be Given in Gym on
The Order of the Grail will give its
first dance of the year next Sal.ur
day night in the Bynum Gymnasium.
According to the plans of the com
mittee this dance will be the biggest
affair ever pulled off by the Grail in
the way of dances. Everybody is in
vited to attend this function except
Freshmen who are excluded by the
rules of the German Club.
The object of the Grail in having
this dance is to bring together the
different elements on the campus, fra
ternity and non-fraternity men in a
broader and bigger spirit of broth
jrhood the brotherhood of Carolina
To perpetuate this spirit is the
chief aim of the Grail and it has
chosen a series of dances to be one
of the best mediums through which
this aim can be effected.
Dances of this type will be given
at intervals all during the year and
any funds that may be made on such
dances are to "be turned back to the
student body in some form or other.
Some of the money which was made
last year was spent on buying letters
which were placed on blankets for
the football team. This year the
Grail will award a silver loving cup
to the winner of the Intra-Mural bas
ket ball championship.

CAROLINA Y'S WORK IS
PRAISED BY LEADING MEN
During the past year, Dr. Sage and
his son, representatives of the Gen
eral Education Board, made a tour
of the Southern state universities
surveying extra-curriculum activities.
Chief among the activities that re
ceived the inspection was the Y. M.
C. A. at each school. Many hours
were spent by the 'Y' Secretary and
others answering the volley of ques
tions put by the Sages. Then at the
Blue Ridge Conference, Dr. Sage
himeself spent the ten days making
further study of the Y's of the South
where he could see them all toge
ther and get a comparison, as well
as a scope of the general work be
ing done. It was gratifying to the
Carolina delegation to hear him,
more than once, make the statement
that, "In scope and vision of pro
gram, and in the work beinjy done,
our "Y" at U. N. C. is far in the
lead of all others in the Blue Pidge
Region, and compares most fa"orably
with the biggest and best in the
country." So that, when we are
ready to start a building campaign
for the Y, it seems that if there is
any thing in the Educational Board
Treasury for Y. M. C. A's at all, we
should get an attentive ear.
The Lincoln County Club held its
?.rst meeting of the year in the "Y"
last Friday night at nine o'clock. The
whole time of the meeting was de
moted to the initiation of new members
Only a small number of the old
members were present.
Wm. Dodderer, of Waynesville, was
initiated into the Sigma Phi Epsilon
fraternity last night.

Everybody Is To Be
Seen on Y Campaign
In order to make the Y. M. C. A.
campaign for funds a success this
year it was deemed advisable to work
out a systematic method of canvass
ing the dormitories and private hom
es. This method met with a certain
degree of success last year but it
seemed that something was lacking.
It worked fine for the first night but
then interest died out among the
The plans for the drive this year
are to be executed in the following
manner: the men canvassing are to
be divided into teams, composed of
four men each. One man on each
team will act as captain to make a
report of the success of his team. In
case some men are not interviewed
by these men the first night, they will
be visited again the second or third
night. The campaign lasts only
three days. The faculty will also ba
visited in like manner.
The health of the student body
seems to be very good at present
with only one man, J. W. Vick, in
the Infirmary. However, it seemed
as though returning to the Univer
sity made some of the students sick,
either home or otherwise, for the
