TAR HEELS WIN
FROM ELON AND

'Carolina Basketeers Down the
Christians From Elon by
TEAM SHOWS GOD FORM
The University's Flying Quint
added two more victories to its fast
growing string when the Durham
Elks and Elon College were swamped
in two successive nights. The all
star Durham Club, Monday night lif
ter tying Carolina in the first half,
succumbed completely, and lost out
by a score of 49-22. Elon fared still
worse on Wednesday night and the
'Tar Heels romped away to a perfect
After playing a nip and tuck came
during the first half, the Elks yield
ed the supremacy of the court to the
collegians and were completely
swamped. Carolina began the game
in a listless fashion and jogged
through the first half with the Dur
ham players trailing by a point or
"two until the score was tied at 18

knows what Coach Shepherd told his
charges during the intermission but
in the second half the Tar Heels
piled up 31 points to the clubmen's
The tale was considerably differ
ent in the Elon encounter, Carolina
showing her superiority almost from
the first. Following the tip-off, the
Isall see-sawed up and down the court
for several minutes before the scor
ing began. The first haU' ended
33-3, A. Brown having been the only
Elon player that was able to pass
the Carolina guards and toss the
old ball in.
The second half was merely a r ?pe
tition of the first. Both sides sent
in scrubs and Shepherd withdrew his
entire varsity only to send them back
on the floor in the last few minutes
of playr ' -;:
Captain Green led in shooting from
the floor, caging seven shots. Cobb
followed with six field goals. Barker
for Elon was the high scorer for th"
Christians, having successfully evad
ed the University guards for two
shots from the court.
The Neophytes of the Sigma Upsi
lon fraternity entertained the stu
dents with a heart-breaking 0-0 slow
motion game of basketball between
lialves. Other features and happen
ings worthy of notice were the band,
'Charles Norfleet and his new mono
gram, and some more of these Chap

Report Issued by Dr. Coker
Shows Work of Improve
ments on School Grounds
According to the report just issued
by Dr. W. C. Coker, Kenan Professor
of Botany at the University of Noi-th
the Wigue and Masque fifty dollar
Carolina, the public schools of the
State have received with increasing
enthusiasm the services of ths Ex
tension Bureau of Design and Im
provement of School Grounds. Mrs.
W. J. Matherly is field agent of this
3ureau of which Dr. Coker is in
charge. As a result of parsonal re
quests from the schools the bureau,
during the year, made blue prints
giving planting suggestions for the
bsautification of 35 public school
The following are some of the North
Carolina communities visited by Mrs.
Matherly: Holly Springs, Haw River,
Morehead City, Louisburg, East Dur
ham High T School, Smithfield, John
son County Training School, Troy,
Carrboro, Greenville, Wintcrville,
Bethel, Ayden, Grifton, Norlioa, Se

Charity Crossroads, Calypso, Apex,
Lcaksville, Siler City, Liberty, Long
Creek, Woodlawn, Newell, Paw
Creek, Hoskins, Matthews, and Hick
A letter recently received from L.
W. Umstead, Principal of the Mag
nolia School, shows that the work of
this Bureau is being appreciated. Mr.
Umstead says in part, "In November
of 1S22 the Holly Springs School ap
plied to the Extension Division of
the University of North Carolina for
aid in the bsautification of its
grounds. Mrs. Matherly, field agent,
isited the school a few days later
and obtained the necessary informa
tion for making the blue-print.
Shortly afterwards the plans were
forwarded to us, and the total cost
was four dollars thirty-five cent;,
Mrs. Matherly's traveling expenses to
The School bought seventeen dol
lars' worth of nursery stock to b.i
gin work on the plans. The plans
are not yet completed, but the im
provements already effected have
added at least a thousand dollars to
the value of the school sits. The
Extension Division is rendering a
reat service to the State."
Jack Dempsey, world's
champion heavyweight, will
not appear here, according to
a definite statement made by
President Chase to Bill Cox
who has been corresponding
with Jack Kearns, Demp
sey's manager for the lact
three days. President Chase
killed the proposed exhibi
tion only after learning that
there was a state law pro
hibiting a bout of this kind.
There was a loophole in the
law since Dempsey is to ap
pear in Raleigh on the thir
tieth, but President Chase
thought it advisable not to
play with the law. "It might
put me in jail," said Dr.
Chase with a broad smile..
This announcement, imme
diately following the enthu
siastic speech in chapel, by
Bill Cox disappointed hun
dreds of students who were
eagerly anticipating a sight
of the great pugilist in ac
tion. Cox was the picture of
chagrin as he sighed, "It's
all off now."

SOUTHERN POET ;.
DuBose Heyward, South Caro
lina Poet Will Lecture Here
A YOKIi CF STEER3
By DuBose Heyward
In Tfcs Atlantic
A heave of mighty shoulders to the
Square patient heads, and flaring
sweep of horn;
The darkness swirling down baneath
Where sleeping valleys stir and feel
Uncouth and primal, on and up they
Taking the summit in a drench of
The night-winds volley upward bitter-sweet,
And the dew shatters to a rainbow
spray Under the slow-moving cloven feet.
There is a power here that grips the
force repressed and inarticulate,
Slow as the swing of centuries, as
As Destiny, and as deliberate.
They will arrive in their appointed
Unhurried by the goad of lesser
bearing vast burdens on.
They are the great
Unconquerable spirit of these hills
DuBose Heyward, South Carolina
poet, will arrive here Sunday after
noon and will give a talk on the Sou
thern poetry movement in Gerrard
Hell on Monday night at 8:30.
Mr. Heyward is one of the organ
izers of the South Carolina Poetry
Society, and has been since its ap
pearance one of its leading figures.
His first work was done in prose, but
for a time now he has huen devot
:ng himself to poetry. He is a con
tributor to the leading American and
, , ,TJ?e work of Mr. Heyward. is tc. b
found in such anthologies as Braith
waite, the "New Poetry Anthology,"
the "Peterborough Anthology," and
'Contemporary Verse Anthologies."
Besides being co-author with Hervey
Allen of "Carolina Chansons," a new
volume by him will appear in ths
spring, "Skylines and Horizons."
In many ways Mr. Heyward might
be considered a North Carolinian,
since he spends a good part of each
summer at his cottage at Henderson
ville, and since he uses North Caro
lina material to a large extent. He
also spends a part of his summers in
the famous literary center, the Mac
Dowell Colony, in Peterborough,
New Hampshire. He spends his win
ters in Charleston, where he is en
gaged in business.
Guests of Sfgma Chi
Ninety two pledges were guests of
the Sigma Chi Fraternity at their
house Monday night. They were real
ly entertained by the pledges of Sig
ma Chi who gave the party in the
hops that the freshmen would come
to know each other batter and cul
tivate a spirit of fellowship. Sand
wiches, punch, cigars, and cigarettes
helped to loosen the tongues and to
ear down the reserve of the visitors.
A constructive talk on what a college
,ocial fraternity should mean to the
individual and the duty every man
owes to his fraternity in adding to
its glory was made by Dr. R. B.
A trio of black boys delighted
sveryone with their old melodies and
"pickin' on de ole banjoes." The par
ty broke up early so that the pledges
could return to their bsloved books,
A Coaching Class

A coaching class in the direction
of High School athletics has recent
ly been started under the direction
of Coach Bob Fetzer.
The course is designed primarily
for those students who intend teach
ing in some High School and many
desire to coach the Athletic teams,
or referee the games. The class
meets for three lectures a week, at
Chapel period, in 211 Phillips Hall.
At present, the course is taking up,
on alternate days basketball and foot
ball. In the Spring, some emphasis

Miss Johnson Buys
No longer than Saturday night ca.i
you drop into Nick's for a hot bowl
of soup and a sandwich. Nick has
sold the Cafeteria and is going out of
business Saturday night.' All those
who have tickets can get a refund
for them anytime Saturday, but not
later for Miss Francis Johnson, the
buyer, will take it over then.
The Cafeteria, which was bought by
Miss Johnson & Company, will be un
der Miss Johnson's personal super
vision. She has been managing the
Durham Y. W. C. A. Cafeteria for
some time and has made a fine suc
cess of it, often feeding as many as
ihree thousand people a day. Not
only has Miss Johnson managed the
Y. W. C. A. Cafeteria, but she has
also found time to enter Trinity Col
lege, pursuing a course in Domestic
After closing Saturday night the
Cafeteria will not be reopened until
it has undergone several changes.
The counters will have a marked
change as also will almost the whole
interior. When reopened it will be
one of the best of the high class eat
ing places on the Hill.
Nick, who came here ' from New
York two years ago and ran the
White House Cafe until last Spring
when he took over the Carolina Cafe
teria, said in a statement Wednes
day night. . "Tell the boys that I ap
preciate their kindness. I realize that
I have made more friends than in a!!
my life, or will in the future. It
breaks my heart that I have to go."
Nick is going directly to New York,
his old home, where he will prob
ably enter business again. He will
bs married next month. He very mod
estly admitted that the fair one is
waiting for him there.
To Give Readings
On Sunday Nights
"The Carolina Playmakers" have
outlined a plan to institute a series
of dramatic readings, to be knnwr as
"Playmaker Readings," which pro-
ridoo for tho readings nf ft play oif
story on the fourth Sunday night
of every month.
A program of the plays to be read
has not been prepared, but Professor
Koch is scheduled to take care of the
first reading which occurs on Sunday
night, January 27, in Gerrard
Hall. Professor Koch will give
Shakespere's "Midsummer Night's
Dream" with piano, accompaniment
by Mrs. Winston. Mendelssohn's mu
sic will used.
It is probable that the second
reader on the program will bs Dr.
Bernard with "Enoch Arden." He has
given it at the University on several
previous occasions to full houses, and
his rendition is indeed a rare treat.
Everyone was sorely disappointed
when ha decided not to give it last
year. He is accompanied by Mrs.
Wilson at the piano. Other readers
will bs announced as soon as the
program is complete.
DR. SPARKS IN CHAPEL
Dr. Edwin E. Spaiks, ex-president
of Pennsylvania State College, will

The University of Georgia
has cancelled her Northern
t:ip and will ba unable to
play Carolina Tuesday Night,
according to a telegram re
ceived by Chas. T. Woollen,
Ciaduats Manager of Ath
letics. Georgia was offered
the open date on the twenty
hlnth and until thi telegram
was received late Thursday,
it was thought that the Geor
gians would fill the date. .
As the Tar Heel goes to
press, no arrangements for a
game has bsen made and due
to the fact that most col
leges have finished schedul
ing games, it is probable
that the date will go unfill
ed. In that case Trinity will
be the only game played in
the "Tin Can" before the
Varsity leaves on its trip.

Leave Sunday For Week's Trip
Through Virginia Four
The University's Wrestling

Wrestling was started in the Uni
versity last year through the efforts
of Dr. R. B. Lawson, Physical Direc
tor in the University;. A. A. Shapiro,
professor of Spanish, and a lettermau
in the sport at Harvard; and Grad
uate Manager C. T. Woollen. Al
though very young in age there has
been a great demand on the part of
the student body uir this sport, and
ast year it was deemed necessary to
try and put the sport on the Univer
sity's campus. The trial proved a
success, and this year the sport wai
added to the line of letter sports.
The only meet so far this year wa3
that with Trinity, early in Decem
ber, at which time there was little
possibility of telling just what ma
terial there was in the team. How
ever with the four meet3 in Virginia,
and a trip to Davidson on February
9th., together with sevei-al interest
ing matches here in February, there
is every possibility of the University
developing a good team, and repre
sentative of the sport here.
Burke, one of the ba-t men in the
light heavy weight class was put out
of the running in the preliminaries
when he had the misfortune to break

Mathewson of Raeford, a second

is unable to make the trip on account
of examinations, and the team is con
siderably weaker by his absence. He

NEW SHOE SHOP OPENS
Shortly after the beginning of the
Winter quarter, the University Shoe
Shop opened for business. It is lo
cated just across from the Post Of
fice and may be identified by the white
front of the shop, and is under the
management of Mr. O. T. Hobby.
The shop is both a regular repair
shop and a shoe shine stand. Tha
rates of the shop compare favorably
with the other places for work done
on shoes. But the thing that is of
most interest is the fact that shoe
.ihines are only five cents. The shop
is well equipped and will be open on
Sundays for shines. This will per
haps cause the other shine places
to reduce their price to five cents
also, which is a fc.ir price. With the
opening of the new shop there can
be now no valid excuse far going
around with shoes in a poor condi
tion, and if the weather that we have
been having for the last few weeks
continues, the shop should have plenty

Three weeks ago the Baptists
had all prospects of putting out an
extremely mediocre team. But Hank
Gharrity, famous for his recent foot
ball team, indulged in a fit of changes
and re-arrangements and has already
worked marvels with the Demon Dea
cons. The Deacons have just returned
from their Virginia trip and played
Trinity in Durham last night.
The Trinity game, although lost by
Wake Forest by a score of 2(5 to 22,
was nevertheless an indicator of
strength by the Baptist quint as
Trinity has an unusually strong team
On the recent trip the Baptists left
Pegano and Carlylse in Wake For
est on account of their inability to
leave their work in the medical
school. But when Richmond Col
lege defeated the Deacons in their
first encounter, Gharrity held up a
beckoning finger, work became light,
and the two stars hastened to join
their college team.
It vas at this point that eyes were
opened. The team that was disre
garded at home went upon a ram
page and defeated the strong V. M. I.

Due to the fact that no other North
Carolina team has played these Vir
ginia teams it is impossible to pre
dict tomorrow's outcome. But a team
that was able to defeat such quints
as are produced at V. M. I. and V. P.
I. shows great promise of giving the
star University team a tremendous
fight coupled with the danger
of a bona fide defeat.
POLICE CHIEF BECOMES
COLORED FOLK'S HERO
Chief Featherston, who constitutes
the Chapel Hill Police Department,
has been declared a hero for his brav
ery. Of course every race, nation and
tribe has its heroes; so it's prefect'
ly natural that the colored brethen
of Chapel Hi 1 should claim the chief
for theirs. It all came about in this
manner and after these causes.
Two anthracite colored gentlemen
were wending their peaceful way
home one night, not thinking of trou
ble at all, when suddenly thoy saw a
.'ight in their house. No light was
due to b3 there until they themselves
made it; so they cautiously crept near,
straining to catch the Hounds that
jhould penetrate their frightened ear
drums. The sounds came and the
ebony skins went. They shouted to
their neighbors a3 they passed.
Upon finding the law they exchang
ed electrified motion of the feet to
the same action of the tongue, with
the result that the Chief accompanied
them on their homeward adventure.
Arriving there, they found a circle
of midnight brunettes reaching around
the house, bravely detremined to
keep the evil thing within the house.
but equally determined to keep away
from dangerous proximity.
The chief bravely annroached the
front door, which obstructed his view
of the interior. He rudely shook the
weak thing and shoved it in. A lit
tle dog ran out between his legs.
CAMPBELL BALL COACH
Tommy Campbell, former head
coach at Carolina and later at Vir
ginia, has been appointed director of
baseball at Harvard. Prior to thi3
appointment, Campbell was assistant
graduate treasurer of the Harvard
Athletic Association. Although he
will have no hand in the coaching of
the team, nevertheless he will be di
rectly responsible for Harvard's show
ing in baseball this spring.
