SHERWOOD EDDY FILLS RETURN
ENGAGEMENT TO CHAPEL HILL
Famous Student of World Problems Pays Carolina Anther Visit
After Absence of Two Years Here December 6-8
Sherwood Eddy is coming back.
Every old Carolina man knows what
that; means. Mr. Eddy is a world fig.
ure Tn student centers and has profr
ably; talked to more students of more
nationalities than any other living
mam He spent three days at Caro
lina ! two; years ago,;speaking td six
large audiences in Memorial Hall, and
at the close accepted an invitation
to return. to Carolina after the trip
around the world upon which he was
on the eve of embarking. December
6, 7, and 8, he will be here.
Mr. Eddy graduated at Yale - in
1891, went to India in 1896 at his own
expense, worked for fifteen .years
among the students of that country,
and was then called to be the head
of all Y. M. C. A. work in Asia. Nine
years of service in this capacity
among the students and officials of
India, China, Japan, the Near East
and Russia, were characterized by
energy, brilliance, and judgment.
In 1912-13 Mr. Eddy was engaged
with John R. Mott in conducting
meetings for students throughout
Asia. In 1914 he returned for an ex
tended campaign in China and his au
diences that year averaged 3,000 a
night. In Hong Kong, for instance,
it was necessary to hold three meet
ings in three successive hours in one
of the largest theatres of the city to
accommodate the crowd. The offi
cials of China, from president and
vice-president down to the governors
and local officials received Mr. Eddy,
sometimes sending out official proc
lamations of the meetings. During
the early years of the war Mr. Eddy
was with the British Army in France,
and, during the closing year on the
American, French, and British fronts.
Since the Armistice his regular work
has taken him often through Europe
and Asia and around the w.orld.
Mr. Eddy has just returned from
Europe, where he has been studying
political, social, and industrial prob
The Mary D. Wright
Debaters Are Chosen
The preliminaries for the annual
Mary D. Wright Memorial intersocie

of the speakers were selected before
the Thanksgiving vacation.
In the Di Society the victorious con
testants were L. G. Deyton, of Green
Mountain, and A. L. Groce, of Cand
ler; while the winners in the Phi pre
lim were, R. L. Hollowell, of Eden
ton, and M. M. Young, of Durham.
The ouery to be discussed will be
"Resolved: That the Philippine Is
lands be given" complete and imme
diate indepnedence." The Dialectic
Society speakers will uphold the affir
mative and the Philanthropic speakers
the negative, in the final aontest,

lems. Last year he visited or work
ed in twenty-two of , the principal
countries of Europe and Asia. He
had especial opportunities of inter
views with the leading men of Eu
rope, including President Mesaryk of
Czechoslovakia, the King of Bulgaria,
menicers OTTatmiets, employers and
labor leaders as well as students and
professors of the universities of Eu
rope. On his recent visit to Germany
he had extended interviews and con
ferences with President Ebert, the
Minister of Reparations, the late
Chancellor, and representative lead
ers of the Universities, of labor and
of Church and State.
His years of travel, study and,
work in foreign lands give Mr. Eddy
a perspective and grasp of the world
situation that few men have. He will
speak in general upon the cha'.'enge
of the world situation, handling such
topics as "The Danger Zones of Twg
Continents," "Russia and the Ruhr,"
"America's Responsibility to the
World," "Campus Problems," "The
Challenge of Our Social Problems,"
and "A Rational Faith for a College
Man. One night will be given over to
an open forum when any student will
have the privilege of submitting any
question which he wishes to ask.
Mr. Eddy will speak first at Chapei
period Thursday morning, Dec. 0.
The Chapel period, however, will be
lengthened to an hour and a half both
Thursday and Friday by the addition
of the third class period, in which no
classes will be held. He speaks again
Thursday night, Friday morning, Fri
day night, Saturday morning, and
Saturday afternoon at 2:30.
Mr. Eddy speaks from vital living
experience, and brings a story of vivid
narrative and thrilling interest to the
young men of America. Mr. Eddy has
been called a "Teddy" Roosevelt type
of man, with the same dynamic drive,
a rugged man with a kick in his mes
sage. FORMER STUDENTS

initiated its new home. Twenty-six
of the most . beautiful and popular
girls in the south were their guests
for the Turkey Day game and the
Fall Dances. As far south as St.
Augustine and from the Old Domin
ion. they came to test the hospitality
of the D. K. E.'s in one of the south's
most beautiful fraternity houses. .
Beautiful and stately from the out
side, the D. K. E. bouse, is even more
pleasing to the eye on the inside.
Finished in ivory throughout and fur
nished with an artistic touch, every
part of the house ,has its charm.
The opening houseparty was chap
eroned by Mrs. Clem Wright.; of
Greensboro, and Mrs. William Dey of
Chapel Hill. The following were
guests: Misses Annie Ford of Char
leston, S. C; Margaret Vaughn, An
nette Wright, and Jessie Myers , of

GRADUATE MANAGER GIVES OUT
Although Weather Cenditions Were Unfavorable to a Record
Breaking Crowd 14,231 People Officially Saw Virginia Game
While Carolina was battling Vir
ginia to a scoreless tie on Thanksgiv
ing she was performing before the
largest crowd ever assembled in the
State of North Carolina for the pur
pose of witnessing an athletic con
test. Had J. Pluvious been a little
less sentimental and had he restrained
a few of his early morning . tears,
perhaps the . attendance would have
been even greater. As it was, 14,231
people passed through the gates, many
others climbed the neighboring trees
or sought the friendly house-tops.
Taking the season as a whole, the
attendance was the greatest in the
history , of the University. At Yale
20,000 people, came out and saw the
Bulldogs run up a G3-0 score against
the Tar Heels. Next comes the
Thanksgiving game with its record
of 14,2.31. N. C. State at Raleigh
where 10,895 passed the ticket man,
ranks, third. The crowd at Richmond
was somewhat below expectations,
coming fourth with 7,971. Then the
figures grow small. 4,000 people saw
the University of South Carolina
game, 3,401 saw the opening game
with Wake Forest, 2.G94 saw David
son scare Carolina and only 2,000 at
tended the University of Maryland
game at College Park.
Moving the Davidson game to
Chapel Hill, in order to furnish the
students with a reasonable number of
home games, proved to be a losing
proposition, financially. At Char
lotte in 1922, some 5,422 people paid
to see the Tar Heels and Wildcats
play. This year at Chapel Hill there
were only C94 paid admissions, and
in. these days of high finance in col
lege football such a strikingly small
figure is almost a tragedy. Certainly
it isn't much of an augment in favor
of bringing many games to the Hill.
In four years the attendance at the
Carolina-Virginia game has doubled.
Back in 1919, when Captain Coleman
and his team played the Cavaliers in
North Carolina for the first time,

THE SCENE OF
Annual Fall Dances Prove to be
the Best in Several Years
Garber at His Best
CONDUCT DANCES ORDERLY
Never in the;history of the Univer
sity have the Annual Fall dances been
quite so beautifully carried out, so
thoroughly enjoyed. Bynum Gym

the hanging draperies of Orange and
Brown, and for the first time on rec
ord these decorations were not torn
down at the Final German Ball. "
Lovely and charming girls, stately
ladies beautiful with their slightly
graying hair and the manners of the
old school; men of all ages suddenly
made handsome and dignified in their
evening dress, all these and many
other things combined to make it a
scene indeed pleasing to the eye.
Youth enjoying itself. Mothers and
fathers proud of their sons and of our
state University in all its glory.
It would take the pen of an artist
well acquainted with the rainbow's
colors, and the graceful words of a
Longfellow to do' justice to the beauty
and charming grace, of the girls of
old Dixie land, dressed more than
ever in 'the "old fashioned way, who
brought joy to student hearts for a

It was the honor of Mr. John Ver
non Ambler of AsheviHe, to lead the
opening dance, that given by the Gor
gon's Head Friday afternoon with
Miss Mary Pickett of Wilmington. Mr.
Ambler was assisted by Mr. Grimes
Williams of Raleigh with Miss Mar
garet O'Donell of Raleigh, and Mr.
Eugene D. Hardin nf Wlmington with
Miss Cathlene Mull of AsheviHe.
The. evening dance was given by
the Gimghoul. Both the Gorgon's
(Continued on Page 4)
7,177 people came up to see the game.
Then in '21, with the game an un
certainty due to the controversy over
"Red" Johnston, 10,132 attended. But
1923 saw all figures "busted" over
14,000 souls perched around Emerson
Field in a drizzling rain nad witness
ed a scoreless battle. . ,
To almost everybody the order of
the day is to talk about what might
have happened if Thesmar hadn't
passed the ball over Arnold's head.
But to Chas. T. Woollen the game is
dead. Right now he has 1925 writ
ten before him in big letters with a
still bigger question mark after it.
Although that big game is two years
off. he is already scratching his head
and wondering what's to be done with
Somehow the subject drifted back
to the Thanksgiving game, the crowd
and the trouble in accomodating
them. Mr. Woollen laughed when he
told about the 14,000 people expect
ing to get seats in the small concrete
stadium the capacity, which is a
scant 2,400. And yet they all seemed
to consider it outrageous because they
were unable to get seats in it. Over
ten thousand temporary seats were
erected, every nook was filled, and
every seat was taken.
No rain insurance was collected. It
didn't rain the prescribed one-tenth
of an inch before two o clock. Ask
ed if he thought that the threatening
weather kept many folks away, the
business manager smiled and avowed
that he didn't know for sure, but ap
parently considering the rain as a
gift from heaven, he switched around
and demanded, "If any more had
come, what in the world would I have
done with them."
Next year the schedule will be the
same as in 1923 excepting perhaps a
shake-up in order and locations. Wake
Forest will act as the opener, fol
