IN BIG AUDIENCE
Tamous Explorer and Social
"Worker Gives Illustrated
Lecture toXarge Crowd
HE IS WIDELY KNOWN
Dr. Wilfred T. Grenfell personally
conducted a large group of students,
faculty and town people through Lab
rador, Tuesday night, starting from
"Memorial Hall and coming back there
at the end of the tour. He showed
them the hospitals and other concrete
evidences of the great work that he
and his associates are doing in that
pioneer land, surprised them with the
-wild beauty of the precipitious cliffs
and mountain fjords of the' coast, and
amazed them with the great natural
resources and possibilities of the
largely unknown territory.
Dr. Grenfell is widely known for
the work he has been doing for the
last thirty years among the fishermen
and others on the Labrador coast, and
for his "books. His lecture was il
lustrated both by lantern slides and
fcy moving pictures.
"When I graduated from my med
ical college in England about 1880,"
said Dr. Grenfell, "I, like many men
f the period, had a decidedly dark
;and pessimistic view of life. Influ
enced by a misunderstanding of the
"writings of Darwin, Huxley, and oth
ers, I thought that man was a ma
chine and life a short tragedy. To
give a man any more future than a
dog or cuttle fish might have, I
"thought unscientific. All that I could
-do for a man was to prolong by a few
years his futile life on the earth.
Sometimes when the subject on the
-operating table seemed of doubtful
"value to society and a decided disad
vantage to his family, it almost
seemed that I would do more good if
iit was business to shorten my life in
stead to lengthen it. It was discour-
aging to think that if 1 cured a man's
leg he would probably use it to kick
"Iris wife with for my work was in
the slums of London. Then one day
I went to a meeting and heard D. L.
Moody speak. I came away feeling
that a man was more than a machine,
and life more than a tragedy, and I
sought a place where my life could
count the most.
Dr. Grenfell then continued to tell
' how work was started among the fish- !
rmen of the North sea, and carried
on till they had a boat with every
fishing fleet, about fourteen in all.
In 1891 he crossed to the American
coast off Labrador, a little known
region. Like Alaska it was once
thought to be worthless. Now,

Phi Sophomores Win
Over Di Sophomores
Election of officers for the spring
term and the annual sophomore inter-society
debate comprised the pro
gram of the Phi Assembly meeting
Officers elected for the spring term
are: Speaker, Z. T. Fortesque; Speak-er-Pro-Tem,
R. Y. Thorpe; Sargeant-At-Arms,
K. D. Coates; Reading
Clerk, J. F. Cooper; Chairman of
Ways and Means Committee, W. T.
Couch, with J. 0. Bailey and J. M.
Saunders as the other members;
Chairman of Appellate Committee, C.
E. Spencer; Assistant Treasurer, R.
The sophomore debate resulted in
2 to 1 victory for the Phi team, up
holding the affirmative side of the
query, "Resolved: That the United
States Government should not lease
r.or sell its mineral lands." The Phi
speakers were R. L. Hollowell and
M. M. Young, while the Di Society,
Upholding the negative, was repre
sented by A. L. Groce and L. T. Bled
soe. Chief contentions of the victors
"were that inherent evils in the salt
and lease policy demand a change
that the policy is morally and econom
ically indefensible, and that a policj
of neither selling or leasing govern
ment mineral lands is practical.
The negative maintained that th(
leasing policy is sound and that the
affirmative's policy would lead t
government operation of minera
lands, which they condemned.
Preceeding the debate, a resolution
seeking the Assembly to go on record
as favoring government control of the
munitions industry was defeated by
A margin of about a half dozen votes.
Begins in Earnest
With the arrival of spring weather,
Emerson Field has taken the place
of the "Tin Can" as the center of
athletic activity and baseball has re
turned to its glory. Uniforms have
already been issued and the members
of the team are actively engaged in
The loss of "Mule" Shirley. Cap
tain-elect of this season's team has
considerably weakened the team in
both the hitting and fielding depart
ments. Shirley has joined the Wash
ington Americans and has reported
to the team in Florida for the spring
work-out. In addition to Shirley the
team looses Joe McLean at short and
Sweetm an at center.
Bryson and Ferebee will probably
bear the pitching burden during the
1924 season, with help from the sub
stitute hurlers of last year's team and
from Coach Sheperd's 1923 freshman
team. The announcement that the
veteran Bryson would again pitch for
Carolina has served to instill much
hope among the students.
Ex-Captain "Casey Morris, "Rab
bit" Bonner, "Monk" McDonald and
"Cart" Carmichael, all of whom have
won fame in other sports, will be the
nucleus of the team. A great number
of men have been out for practice
but the team has not yet begun to
assume any definite shape.
The baseball schedule has not been
completed and will not be released
until at least another week.
DAVID FRIDAY TO
Noted Economist Will Lecture
Tonight and Wednesday
Morning at 9:30
Professor David Friday, one of the
nation's leading economists, will give
a public lecture in Gerrard Hall Tues
day night at 8:30 o'clock on the sub
ject of -"The Ethics of Industrialism."
He will speak here under the auspi
ces of the School of Commerce, Dean
D. D. Carroll, in announcing Professor
Friday's visit to the University, sug
gests that the public lecture will ap

bers who are interested in the eth
ical aspects of the modern industrial
system. The visitor is declared to
be an exceptionally pleasing speaker.
Wednesday morning in Gerrard
Hall at 9:30 o'clock Prof. Friday will
speak on "The Future of Prices and
Interest rates." All classes in the
School of Commerce at that hour will
be dismissed in order that Commerce
students may hear the lecture. It is
announced that any person particu
larly interested in the subject of
prices or interest rates will be wel
comed to hear it, also.
The visiting lecturer is the Direct
or of Research for the National
Transportation Institute of Chicago.
He was formerly President of the
Michigan Agricultural College, and
has been an instructor and professor
at the University of Michigan. Be
fore going to Michigan Agricultural
College as its president, he was for
a time Professor of Political Econ
omy at the same institution. Friday
was graduated from the University
of Michigan in 1908, and since that
time he has been a prominent
citizen of his native state. He has
served as Franchise Appraiser for
the Michigan Tax Commission, as val
uation expert for the Michigan Rail
way Commission; and as statistical
advertiser to the United States Treas
ury and to the United States Tele
phone and Telegraph Administration.
For two years he was head of the
Department of Economics at New
Prof. Friday has contributed sev
eral books to the field of economics,
chiefly among them "Problems in
Accounting" (1915), "Readings in
Economics" (1916), and "Profits,
vVages, and Prices" (1920). He has
also contributed to numerous period
icals. He is a member of the Amer
ican Economics Association, the Na
tional Tax Association, the Annals
of the American Academy of Political
and Social Science, the Royal Econo
mic Society, Phi Beta Kappa, and
various other organizations.
The Geology Club held a meeting
ast Friday night. Dr. Collier Cobb
.-.ade a very interesting talk about
arthquakes, thai- causes and beha-
ior. He discussed the recent earth
quake in Japan.
BOOKED MARCH 25
'Ye Gods!" Will Be Staged
Here Soon and Will Go on
"Ye Gods!", the- musical comedy
being produced by the Wigue and
Masque, University dramatic organ
ization, will be presented in Memor
ial Hall on March 25, after which
the troupe will go on a tour include
ing the following towns: Henderson,
March 26; High Point, 27; Greens
boro, 28; Raleigh, 29.
"Ye Gods!" was written by Earl
Hartsell, who won a prize of fifty
dollars given by Wigue and Masque
for the best original musical com
edy submitted for production. This
is the second musical comedy to be
produced by Wigue and Masque
since its birth on the campus tfinim
years ago,' the other being "The Kalif
of Kavak," by Ernest Thompson,
which was presented in Memorial
Hall last Spring.
Due to the fact that Wigue and
Masque was in its infancy, a' tour
could not be financed last year. Two
performances were given in Memorial
Hall, and one at Pinehurst. Here
on the Hill everybody agreed that
it was darn good, and some instruc
tors even compared it with a Prince
ton Triangle Club production. It
was very well received before a
critical audience at Pinehurst.
However good "The Kalif of
Kavak" was, "Ye Gods!" should bs
better. There are twenty-four chorus
"girls" and thirteen principals in the
present cast as against sixteen chorus
girls and nine principals in last
year's play. There are sixteen mu
sical numbers, all of which were
written by Professor P. J. Weaver
and Billy Vaught. The show is re-
jjlete with specialty dances by a
team composed of Kike Kyser, Al
Moseley, and Lee Bullock, all of
whom are eccentric dancers of no
mean ability and have had previous
experience on the stage. Jules Welch,
whose dancing was a sensation in
"The Kalif of Kavak," will play the
role of Venus and will again do a
number of dances.
Then Frank Hursey and Jim .Haw
kins must not be overlooked. Hur
sey playing the part of "the Mother-'
in "The Kalif of Kavak" got all the
laughs. He has since played import
ant roles in The Carolina Playmaker
productions. Although this is Jim
Hawkins' first stab at musical com-
dy, there is no reason why he
should not be as good as he is in
Carolina Folk Plays. He is probab
ly far and away the best actor with
the Playmakers today, and he is
showing the same ability on the mu
sical comedy stage. The Carolina
Club Orchestra composed of eight
men, and Sol Avner, will make up
the orchestra for this performance.
One of the handicaps of last
year's production of "The Kalif of
Kavak" was an inadequate stage, but
that has remedied this year by enlarg
ing the stage in Memorial Hall. With
ample stage room, Wigue and Mas
que has gone to an expense of hun
dreds of dollars in equipping it. The
elaborateness of the stage settings
and the costuming will be the most
striking feature of the show. The
Chronicle Company of Asheville has
been secured to do this work, under
the direction of Miss Glenna Smith
Tinnen. The Chronicle Company,

Virginia Ball Games
Are Definitely Dated
Dates for the three Carolina-Virginia
basball games have been de
finitely scheduled, according to C. T.
Woollen, University Graduate Man
ager of Athletics, who states that
the commencement diamond battle
this spring will not be staged with
Virginia, as heretofore. The Old Do
minion team asked that no commence
ment games be played, and Carolina
has adhered to this request.
Mr. Woollen is seeking to get Geor
gia Tech to fill the commencement
date, usually filled by Virginia. The
;ommencement battle is usually the
biggest attraction of the baseball sea
son. The first Virginia game will be
played at Charlottesville April 26;
the festivities will be switched to
Chapel Hill on May second, while or.
the following day the teams wiL
move to Greensboro for the annual
battle there, which will take place
pn May third.

night at 8 o clock in the Tin Can.
The Deke team won the fraternity
league title Monday when they beat
the A. T. O. team 16-15 after two ex

the contest. The game had baen
made necessary by a tie between the
two teams for league leadership.
The game which will decide the win
ners of the cup given by the Order of
the Grail will in all probability be an
excellent one, for both teams have
shown up good during the season and
have some promising players includ
ed in their line-ups.

Georgia and Auburn
May be Scheduled
The University of Georgia and Au
burn may find places on Carolina's
1925 football schedule, according to
Charles T. Woollen, graduate mana
ger of athletics, who has just returned
from Atlanta. Mr. Woollen was in
Atlanta for the Southern tournament
and while there attended an executive
committee of the Southern Intercol
For the three past years Carolina
and Georgia have desired to meet each
other on the gridiron, but graduate
managers at the respective institu
tions have found it impossible to ar
range their schedules in order that a
grid combat could be staged between
the Bull Dogs and the Tar Heels.
Auburn has been considered, also,
as a new possibility for the football
schedule. While no announcement
has been made to that effect, some
radical departures from the schedule
of the last few years may be forth
coming in 1925, it is believed, with
the proposed games with Georgia and
Auburn as two new attractions.
The 1924 schedule has been com
pleted, so possible football relations
between Carolina, Auburn and Geor
gia will not effect it in the least.
THEODORE FITCH GIVES
VOCAL CONCERT SUNDAY
Theodore Fitch of the Music De
partment accompanied by Mrs. H. W.
Chase gave a vocal program last Sun
day afternoon in Memorial Hall. The
program (with one exception) was
sung entirely in English.
The Ward-Stephens version of the
"Twenty-Fourth Psalm" opened the
concert. It was not till the last two
groups were sung that Mr. Fitch
showed his full vocal ability. The
"Nocturne" by Curran and Handel's
"Care Selve" were by far the most
pleasing and satisfying numbers.
There was one tribute of most remar
kable sincerity that was shown by an
elderly lady in the audience who
wept at the conculsion of Mr. Fitch's
rendition of the ever popular "La
ment" from Leoncavallo's "Pagli
acco." Alumni of the University of North
Carelina in attendance upon the
meeting of the North Carolina Edu
cation Association will hold a ban
quet at the Y. M. C. A. in Raleigh
at 6:00 P. M. on' Thursday, March
The banquet will be in the nature
of a get-together affair.
SCHEDULE OF EXAMS
Team Will Not Enter
At the faculty meeting Friday af
ternoon, the members of the faculty
voted to the effect that the basket
ball team not be allowed to go to
Indianapolis to the National Tourna-
ment. Dean Bradshaw opened the
discussion by making a motion, on
the request of some members of the
student body, that the team should
be allowed to go. This motion was
seconded by Mr. Hibbard. Then
plan was suggested whereby the whole
decision would be left in the hands of
the Athletic Committee and the Deans
of the undergraduate schools. This
was voted down, as it was thought
that it was putting too much on a
small group of men to make them
decide a question which would prob
ably bring forth much censure and
blame. After much discussion the
original motion was voted on and it
was practically unanimous in favor of
not permitting the team to go.
The nearness of the exams and the
fact that nine out of the ten days
which are permitted to an athletic
team away from the Hill had boen
spent were reasons for the faculty
taking this step. It was also brought
out at the meeting that some of the
players could not possibly pass their
work if there were any more absences
marked up against them. The date
of the tournament is also against
Carolina participating. The tourna
ment starts just before exams start
here and continues on so that the
players would miss all of their exams
as well as valuable review work.
AM IS PICKED
Two Reidsville, Two Wilmington
and One Durham Man
Placed on All-State
Haar, Wilmington F.
Sattcrf ield, Durham F.
Miller, Reidsville (c) C.
Neal, Reidsville G.
Loughlin, Wilmington G.
Munn, Rocky Mount F.
Young, Raleigh F.
Kelly, Wilmington C.
Morris, Charlotte G.
Delancy, Reidsville G.
In picking an all-state high school
team it will be necessary to limit
the players to those whose teams
performed on the Hill either in the
elimination series or in scheduled
games played here. However, in all
probability the pick of the high school
players will be included among those
who have performed here sometime
during the season.
Haar of Wilmington has been
given a berth at forward position be
cause of his uncanny eye on the bas
ket and his floor work. He is prob
ably the best high school shot seen
here this season. Satterfield of Dur
ham will make an exceptionally good
running mate for Haar. He is an ex
cellent passer, a very good floor man
and also has shooting ability. Munn
of Rocky Mount and Young of Ra
leigh are both fast dribblers and good
shots and, although not quite as good
as the other two mentioned, would run
them a close second. They were se
lected for second team.
Miller of Reidsville is the outstand
ing of the centers seen in action. He
is tall, can jump, passes well and is
a sure shot around the basket. He is
honored with the captaincy of the
mythical five. Kelly of Wilmington
is our pick over the remaining cen
ters. There were quite . a few excellent
guards in the state and there are
several pairs that could be easily ad
vocated for the first team, but the
call goes to Loughlin of Wilmington
and Neal of Reidsville. The former
is a good shot as well as being an
excellent guard. He is especially
valuable in breaking up passes. He
would be stationed at running guard
with Neal at stationary guard. Neal
was one of the main factors in Reids
ville's defense. Besides he can
uribbie well and is, when called on, a
good shot. Morris of Charlotte would
run Neal a close race for his position.
Maying with a team on which he was
the only man who was not ruled of!
just before the series, he proved to
be a large factor in Charlotte's ad
vance towards the title. He is placec
on the second team with Delancy o.
Reidsville as running mate. Delancj
is an experienced guard who knowt
his position and plays it well.

when Milner, Reidsville substitute for

The Wilmington team stayed in the
lead until the final two minutes of
the game. The half had ended 6 to

Di Society Chooses
Officers for Sprin
Election of officers for the Spring
quarter and tho annual inter-society
debate were held in the Di Hall last
The election was throughout char
acterised by listlessness and lack of
interest. In some cases only one man
was nominated for an office and
easily carried it. J. W. Deyton, who
was elected several weeks ago in or
der that his picture might go in the
Yackety Yack, will preside over the.
society dining the next quarter. R.
W. Linker was by a good majority
elected vice-president. Three men
were nominated for secretary. II. C.
Klingenschmitt secured tho majority
of votes for this office. II. L. Est-
ridge was elected first censor morum.
For second censor morum, A. E. Mc
Intyre was chosen. Pete Murphy, in
recognition of his splendid and effi
cient service during the last quarter,
was re-elected unanimously for first
corrector. Cameron McRae was also
without a dissenting vote elected se
After the election of officers, sev
eral matters of business were brought
up before the society and disposed of.
The treasurers' report showed the
state of the Di's finances to be rather
low, there being a balance of only
$20.38 in the treasury at present.
By a special vote of the society on
the previous Saturday night, the pres
ident was given power to excuse any
one who wanted to leave after the
business session and not remain for
the debate. When the business ses
sion was adjourned, every man in the
hall except about 15 loyal ones made
a rush for the door and disappeared.
The debate was delayed awhile in the
hopes that someone else would come
in, but was finally started before a
practically empty house.
The question for the debate was:
Resolved, That the United States Gov
ernment should neither lease nor sell
its mineral lands. L. B. Kennett and
P. E. Head spoke on the affirmative
for the Di freshmen while J. L. Ma
thews and J. R. Owens represented
the negative for the freshmen of the
Phi Assembly. Quite lengthly dis
cussions were given by both sides.
The rebuttals were especially good.
The judges decided unanimously in.
favor of the affirmative.
