Forth the Spooks
Hallowe'en, spooky and boisterous,
swooped down upon us Wednesday
with an unsightly collection of
witches and deformities. It was un
safe for anyone to be on the streets,
for you never knew when you would
be accosted by a bewitching little
witch or a fierce, shimmering punp
kin head.. On every corner, behind
every tree and post, there was one
of these hideous creatures ready to
chase you to St. Louis. Door alarms
that had beeome rusty from idleness
were in a state of exhaustion Wed
nesday night, and the residents of
Chapel Hill were kept busy to the
small hours of the night answering
knocks and rings.
However, there was one consola
tion in that there seemed to be a
scarcity of fire-works, for such re
ports were rarely, if ever, heard. But
the celebration was not limited to
the children alone. Several young
men of Durham, in black face and
wearing all kinds of regalia, came
over, and it was thought that they
were members of the "Black Hand,"
until they paid a friendly visit to
Nick at the Cafeteria. Some thought
they were fraternity brothers . of
Nick, or the initiates of some kind of
Greek letter organization." This band
of Hallowe'enites was very quiet and
lady-like, for they sat down and
quietly listened to the radio concert.
Some of htem had a few "sworts" too
many, so it became necessary for
them to depart. Gus was excused and
went with them.
By this time the children of the
village had been tucked away, so the
remaining few minutes of the day
were left to saints.
"Casey" Morris will not
have to undergo operation
for appendicitis. After
spending a day and night un
der observation, at Watts .
Hospital in Durham, Morris
, was brought back to Chapel
Hill and placed in the Col
lege Infirmary. Dr, Aber
nathy stated Friday after
noon that Morris would prob
ably be able to resume prac
tice next week.
While this does not mate
rially aid the team at Colum- ,
bia it helps greatly, to drive,
away the gloom that has
lately come over the cam
pus. With the exception of .
Morris, the team was out for
practice today with all men
in good condition. The re
covery of "Casey" and of the
other injured players' puts
Carolina in good trim for the
South Carolina game tomor
row and V. M. I. on Nov. 10.
In an interview with Dr.
Abernethy of the local In
firmary, the doctor an
nounced that the condition of
"Casey." Morris had improv
ed greatly, and that unless
new complications develop
he will be on the athletic
field for practice Monday af
ternoon. Dr. Abernethy is
describing the case said
"that Morris drew to an in
side straight and won."
Clayton Bellamy. Elected Leader
With W. E. White and Henry
Sample As Assistants
Clayton Giles Bellamy, William E.
White, and Harry Sample will lead
the fall German. Old , timers .say
their election was the tamest ever
held on the campus. Thejmembers df
the club did not even have to rise!
Bellamy was nominated for leader
and unanimously elected, White and
Sample, assistants, didn't hafce any
opposition at all. ,
'Wise nten on the campus will elu
cidate arid explain' the ease 'of the
election. The machine, they will tell
you, was just too powerful and well
oiled at the meeting Thursday.- Op
position was not only inadvisable
but would have had no effect. Sages
on political theory, if they under
stood the frame-up, could not help
but admire its .completeness. , Rumor
gives-it 'at least ten years of rule. " '
A contract : has been signed with
Garber-Davis for the dances. If he
should break this contract he must
forfeit four hundred dollars. The ex
ecutive committee and the leaders
will begin immediately to complete
arrangements for the dances.
Right how the question of most im
portance is to secure a floor on the
Hill suitable for the crowd expected.
Favors and decorations will be or
ders within the next few days. It is
the purpose of the, committee and the
leaders to make the dances this year
the best ever held. Beauty and orig
inality will be their chief aim vi pur
chasing favors and decorations.
Dances begin Friday afternoon af
ter the game and end with the fall
German Saturday night. There will
be five in all. Plans are being made
however for a morning dance Fri
day. Leaders for the Junior order
dances will be announced in the next
issue of the Tar Heel.
Garber-Davis will play in Durham
on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thurs
day nights. AH students are asked
to co-operate with the executive com
mittee and the dance leaders in an
effort to make these the cleanest,
most enjoyable dances ever held at

AUSPICES OF GLEE CLUB
Under the auspices of the Univer
sity Music Clubs the Glee. Club from
Greensboro . College, twenty-five
strong, will invade Chapel Hill next
Tuesday evening for the purpose of
giving a concert in Memorial Hall.
This will be the second time that the
girls from G. C. have been to the
Hill in 1923, having given! a concert
here last spring. They professed
themselves then as being unusually
well pleased with the reception ac
corded them by the Carolina student
body. The fact that they are. back
again this term seems pi'oof enough
Those who attended the concert, giv
en last spring will not have to be
urged to come out again this time.
The mere fact of having twenty-five
pretty girls on the old platform at
one time will be enough to draw a
great many. But regardless of this,
an unusually good program is assur
ed. It will consist of about anything
that could be asked for in the vocal
line, as solos, duets, quartets, etc.,
not to mention piano selections and
other attractions too numerous to
Such invasions on the part of so
many ladies to the campus is a rare
thing. For this reason, if for no
other, the student body is expected
to come out "en masse" to Memorial
Hall next Tuesday night. "

The Music Department has secured
the services of Miss Catherine, Riggs

Had the First Class Smoker
the Season Last Tuesday
By J. E. HAWKINS
Amid the blare of Carolina's big
brass band and abundant bull the
class of '25 held its first smoker of
the year in Swain Hall Tuesday eve
ning. Although the junior quartette
was absent and the mandolin trio was

were highly appreciated.
The culinary offerings of the eve

from the recesses ' of our favorite
dining hall, consisted- of variegated
sandwiches, hot chocolate and wafers,
and Chesterfields with appropriate
The post-prandial oratory was most
charmingly served up by Dr. J. Man
ning Booker and Professor H. .D..
Meyer. Ludlow Rogers, president of
the class, acted as toastmaster and
acquitted himself nobly. In an elab
orate introduction of Johnnie Booker
he brought to light a number of that
gentleman's characteristics of which
the learned Doctor himself was prob
ably not entirely aware.
In a sparkling talk, utterly devoid
of orthodox joke (Hear ye!), our
eminent preceptor of things Victorian
handed the Juniors some rattling
good dope in regard to "Our Life's

Professor Meyers "Out Life's Work."
He touched on that " unfortunate

HAS STRANGE BEDFELLOW
A Carolina student returned late
Sunday night from one of his week
end carousals in Durham to find that
his bed was occupied. Thinking it
was only one of his boy friends he
proceeded to retire, and being very
sleepy he needed only a short while
to pass into the land of sweet
dreams. When the alarm clock
sounded Monday morning he turned
over and found himself face to face
with a large Airedale pup. The stu
dent proceeded to catch his 8:30 and
the dog to hunt his breakfast.
The purpose of the "Hay-shaker'" is
not to attempt to decide this issue,
however, but merely to correct a
wrongful impression left in the
minds of the good church-folk of the
state, which, if allowed to remain,
would result in incalculable injury not
only to the future interests of the
University but also to her good

DR. CHASE READS
Gives Out Statement In Regards
To Recent Boll Weevil
EXPLAINS THE SITUATION
In Chapel Friday Dr. Chasa read
a statement concerning the Univer
sity's action in regards to the recent
Boll Weevil affair. The TAR HEEL
gives the text of the statement for
the benefit of those who may have
missed the chapel. It follows:
I deem it proper to make to you
at this time a statement regarding
the Boll Weevil, as I desire to make
clear to you certain facts and poli
cies which I do not believe have been
this publication was tounded in
the fall of nineteen hundred and
twt.ity-two by a group of students
as a private enterprise, under the
business managership of Mr. L. J. S.
Brody. It was welcomed by the Uni
versity authorities, who felt, and still
feel, that there is a place on the
campus for a properly conducted col
lege comic. I wish, however; to suy,
once for all, that no agreement ever
existed between it and the Univer-
sity whereby it at any time had the
slightest right to ' describe itself ' as.
an official University publication, I
am indeed at. a loss to, understand,
how anyone who. knew that the Boll
Weevil wc.3 a private enterprise could
even for a moment have assumed
that it had any official relationship
to the University. It certainly was,
not the official comic publication of
the student body, which had nver
taken any action that would make
it such, and I have the best of rea
sons for assuming that it never was
an official publication of the faculty,
the trustees, or the alumni. The
facts are that Mr. Brody, on sub
mitting his proposed plan of organ
ization last fall, was specifically told
by me that portions of it those cov
ering its relations to the proposed
publications union, were matters for
student decision, not for mine, and
that he was further told, at the same
time, that, as a private enterprise,
the Boll Weevil was not, arid could
not be, an official publication in any
sense. I stressed the point because
it is altogether unfair to you and to
the University as a whole that any
man should capitalize for his private
gain the name and reputation of the
University. The formula which scorn
ed to me proper was that the Boll
Weevil should be described as pub
lished "by students of the University
of North Carolina." Later in the
year, however, I found that the man
ager had totally disregarded our un
derstanding, and was describing his
publication as "official" not mcroly
on its pages, but, as I have since
learned, on his contract forms and
letter-heads. To secure advertising
under such conditions is to secure
it under false pretense.
Altogether aside from this evidence
began to accumulate several months
ago which brought Mr. Brody under
suspicion of grave misconduct, both
in his managership of the Boll Wee
vil and in other entreprises with
which he was connected as a student.
This evidence the Exe
cutive Committee of the fac
ulty considered of sufficient weight
to summon Mr. Brody before it. He
was allowed to examine the evidence,
and was given every opportunity to
clear himself, and, in the unanimous
judgment of the Executive Commit
tee, was found guilty of conduct dis
honorable and unworthy a University
student, and debarred from road mis
sion to the University.
The fact that Chapel Hill is Mr.
Brody's legal residence made it pos
sible, however, for him to continue
his activities in town, though not in
the University. Inasmuch as he man-
