vv nen Harriet ivionroe turned over
one issue of her magazine, "Poetry,"

Made For Big Game
As the day for the Big Thanksgiv
ing Game approaches, arrangements
are being made to accomodate near
ly fifteen thousand spectators. The
alumni applications, with the faculty
and students, have taken about 70 per
cent of the seats and present indica
tions are that they will go over 75
per cent. There will be 4.350 seats
on the south side of the field, 2,080
on the west side, 2,610 on the east
side and 3,540 on the north side, all
of which have been reversed. The
first space to the left in concrete
stand will be the Virginia secton with
their parties, and next to them will
be the section for the faculty. The
first space to the right has been re
served for the trustees and the presi
dent with his party, followed by the
old squad members. The student body
will be seated on the south side, in
the center of the field.
The Carolina Motor Club will have
parking of the automobiles in charge.
The parking space will be on the
Freshman Field, in the rear of South
Building and the street parking space.
The Friendship CothmI of the Y. M.
C. A. will conduct a lunch counter
at the Old Well. The Alumni will
also have their headquarters and in

Cheer Leader Fronobrr!rer gives
out the information that no one but
students will be admitted into the
student section and he warns against
getting tickets in th student section
for the families of students as this
will probably causo some embarrass
ment. There is a special section for
students and their parents and
friend to be together, which will be
just at the side of the student section.
thologies of American verse give ex
amples of this work.
Noith Carolinians will find particu
lar interest in the poetry of Heyward
in that he has published many poems
dealing with mountain life in and
around Hendersonville, where he has
a summer home. He has spent some
summers at the famous literary col
ony at Peterborough, New Hampshire,
The MacDowell Colony.
Mr. Heyward has only been avail
able for lectures in the South for a
short time, but the recent popular
revival in poetry interest has called
him out frequently during the pas!
year. The lecture which he will de
liver here will be on the general
movement hereabouts, together with
readings from the works of some of
the major figures in the South.
The botany department has been
trying to beautify the grounds around
quadrangle by planting decorative
plants next to the dormitories. This
was done at the cost of considerable
time and money. During the past
week some one set fire to one of the
plantings which was covered with
mesh for protection against cold and
completely destroyed it. His motive
for doing this is not known. Such
destructions of efforts on the part of
the University to make the campus
a more desirable place is dishearten
ing to say the least.
Mr. W. J. Matherly delivered a
speech to the Kinston Kiwanis Club,
Friday night, November 16.
What is the Phi Assembly going to
debate next? Last Saturday night a
resolution seeking to put class at
tendance on the voluntary basis, "the
student attending classes according to
the dictates of his conscience," miss
ed but four votes of passing ' the
House. Next Saturday night it is
announced that the Assembly will de
bate a bill entitled "An Act to Con
trol Child Birth." Voluntary class at
tendance! Birth control!! Truly,
things are beginning to hum at the
Phi meetings these days.
The measure having for its purpose
voluntary attendance upon classes had
a "rider" along with it when it was
first presented to the House, but ,bo
author of the resolution agreed to
strike it out the "rider" when a vote
was taken. Said rider provided for
nothing less than the basing of a pro
fessor's salary schedule on the class
attendance of his students.
It called forth considerable discus
sion, not at all humorous. Sponsors
of the resolution maintained that it
was nothing but a logical extension
of the honor system. Its opponents
declared it would be granting too
much freedom to young undergrad
uate students, especially freshmen.
When a vote was taken, 31 nega
tive votes and 23 affirmative votes
Only one other resolution was dis
cussed. It sought to have the Society
go on record as disapproving France's
action in blocking the efforts of Eng
land and the United States in ascer
taining Germany's ability to pay her
reparations. The resolution called
forth some able defenses and very
violent denunciations of France's ac
tions. A vote on the proposal will
not be taken until next Saturday
"The greatest tragedy in human
experience is a useless life dragged
out to a useless end; a purposeless
life lived out to a worthless close,"
declared the Rev. Dr. David H. Scan
Ion, of the First Presbyterian church
of Durham, who delivered the Uni
versity sermon for November Sunday
night in Gerrard Hall.
Dr. Scanlon took for the theme
of his sermon the life of Paul. The
first characteristic of Paul was that
for him "conscience was king," "he
was not disobedient to the heavenly
vision, and even before he became
a Christian he was zealous for what
ever he thought to be right. Wonder
fully impressed by the martyrdom of
Stephen, which he approvingly watch
ed, he himself gladly and courageous
ly took up a course of life which
ended in martyrdom when he was call-
d by Christ to fill up the broken
ranks of the college of apostles.
The second characteristic attribut
ed to Paul by the speaker was his
concentration of purpose and energy.
No one on earth knows where the
body of Paul lies, but no epitaph
could be more appropriate than
those words of his, "For me to live
is Christ; and this one thing I do ."
"A Frenchman who came to Amer
ica once said that he found in Amer
ica 400 different kinds of religion,
all exactly alike." Such a state of
affairs would never have pleased
Paul, whose third characteristic was
that of devout humility. Early in his
ministry Paul wrote, "I am not be
hind the chief est of the Apostles;"
later he wrote, "I am the least of
the Apostles"; later still, "I am less
than the least of the Saints," the or
dinary Christians; and just before he
died these words, "I am the cliief
i of sinners."
The last of the characteristics of
Paul stressed by Dr, Scanlon was the
"calmness, serenity, and composure,
with which he met the issues of life."
Paul had the assurance and peace
that comes only to the Christian who
knows that it is not death to die and
be at home with God.
GRAIL DANCE IS
A BIG SUCCESS
Bevy of Beautiful Girls Attract.
Large Number of Stags to
the Grail's Dance
Attended by many and proclaimed
by all as the best Grail dance the his
tory of the Order is the story of the
dance given Saturday night in By-
num gymnasium by the Order of the
Grail. Coming as it did on the night
of the Davidson game there were
kmany visitors from out of town to
attend. Many beautiful girls and
iWonderfful music made the dance an
event of much pleasure to the large
and unusual number of stags attend
ing. Ihe bevy of beautiful girls lured
large numbers of students out for the
" Everything went off as smoothly
as could be wished and the evening
seemed to be spent by all in a most
pleasant manner. The Carolina Club
orchestra was at its best while near
ly all the girls received a big "rush"
from the out of proportionate num
ber of boys. It seemed that "break
ing" was the order of the evening for
it was seldom that a fellow was ever
permitted to take more than a dozen
steps with a girl.
At twelve when the last piece was
being played there were many who
would have been willing to have ex
tended the good time further into the
night'. However, the breaking of the
Sabbath put an end to the enjoyment
of the evening and left in the minds
Lof those attending a certainty of
"catching" the next Urail dance.

NEW PLAN FOR CHEER
Cheer leader Froneberger
announces an innovation for
the Carolina cheering section
at the Virginia game which
will add greatly to the color
and pep of - the game. The
plan is to form a large "U.
N. C." by having men in de
signated sections hold up
cards at a given signal from
the cheerleader. One section
will form the U, the second
section the N, and the third
the C. Pieces of cardboard
will be placed in the proper
seats on the morning of the
game, and only those who
have the cardboards placed
in their seats will take part
in the forming of the U. N.
C." Further infromation
will appear in the
next issue of the Tar
Heel, and the plan will be
explained at Chapel and the

The day has come, we've got 'em on the run,
And we will win.
"Hold 'em Carolina,
Dr. Swan of the American Social
Hygiene Association gave an infor
mal talk to the members of the Psy
cology Department last Friday after
noon in Peabody Building. Dean
Manning and Dr. Bullitt of the Med
ical School were also present. Dr.
Swan gave a short talk on the import
ance of the endocrian glands in the
emotional life of an individual. He
spoke about the thyroid, thymus, and
pituitary glands in connection with
his treatment of a boy sixteen years
old with the mental age and very
young appearance of a boy of the age
of ten. In his treatment he enabled
the boy to grow out of his physical
and mental handicaps and to take on
more mature characteristics, both
mental and physical. It was impos
sible to say just which one of the
glands was affected by the treatment
so as to cause the change.
Dr. Bullitt also made a short talk
emphasizing the fact that the ignor
ance of the functioning of these
glands is still very great and he
regreted the popularizing of the glan
dular theories. He aiso stated that
in his opinion some of the cases of
embellants were due to physical disturbances.
Win First Matches
Friday afternoon the Freshman
cross-country team won from the
Trinity Freshmen by the score of 36
to 100. The man who came in first
counted one for his team, the second
counted two and so on. The team
that had the lowest number of points
therefore, won. Eight places for
each team counted and Carolina took
the first eight. The men who placed
for Carolina wore: Bell, Brooks,
Turner, Byrd, Cook, Daniel, Raper,
Smith, in the order named. The dis
tance was two and a half miles and
the time of the first man was thir
teen minutes and twenty-four sec
ondds. On Saturday the Varsity defeated!
the Wake Forest team bv the score
of 33 to 72. The same system of
scoring was used and Carolina won all
the first nine places except the fourth
and the eight. The first nine men
were: Rannsom M. D. (C), Thatch
(C), Milstead (C), Bailey (W. F.),
Lambeth (C), Scarborough (C), Wes
sels (C), Peacock (W F), and Ran
som R. L. ( C)
With Davidson fighting every inch
of the way, Carolina plowed down
Emerson Field for two touchdowns,
Saturday, and defeated the Wildcats
14-3. Although severely crippled the
Presbyterians nt times played Caro
lina clear off her foot and more than
once knocked at the Tar Heel's door.
Carolina started the game off in
the listless manner of an ordinary
prep school outfit, Hendrix, David
son's quarterback, unleashed' such a
furious attack at the opening of the
game that Carolina, apparently dazed,
was rolled back deep into her part
of the field. There the Wildcats were
halted and Hunt, pinch kicker, reg
istered a field goal from placement
and placed Carolina on the small end
'of the score.
Temporarily set back, the Davidson
team slowed up until they were able
,to regain breath. Once again they
had Carolina on the very goal line
when an' unlucky fumble was pounc
ed upon by "Casey" Morris. . Still an
other time the Wildcats had eaten
their way down to within scoring
distance when an intercepted pass
The Presbyterians were apparently
predestined to lose the game. They
made twelve first downs to Caro
lina's twelve, outpunted and outpass
ed Carolina. The fates were against
her. Hodgins was knocked out on
the first play, and Hendrix, fleet and
skillful, was able to play but a small
portion of the game. Carolina, it
is true, had a lino that was able to
hold when dire necessity prompted it,
and a backfield that, uiice it started,
was difficult to stop. On a whole
Carolina played pitifully slow. Ages
passed afteh the snapping of the ball
before the backfield would set in mo
tion, and the ' line at times, was "
scratched to bits by the claws of the
McDonald made the first touchdown
in the second quarter. Slashing off
tackle plays carried the team seventy
yards and on the 3 yard line "Monk,"
picking a hole in the line, went
through. The second touchdown had
Bonner written all over it. With a
twenty-five and a twenty yard run to
his credit, the, "Rabbit" jumped over
both teams from the one yard line
for the final score. McDonald again
