Nell Battle Lewis
Is a Visitor Here
Miss Nell Battle Lewis of the News
and Observer was on the Hill Monday
to look over the work of the Carolina
Playmakers. Professor Koch's class
in playwriting and play producing
gave a special exhibition of their work
for the benefit of Miss Lewis who is
to write a series of articles concern
ing the Playmakers.
After the class was over, Miss Lew
is was the guest of the Playmakers
at tea in their unique tea room in the
lasement of the Old Law Building.
Professor Koch and Mr. Denny took
Miss Battle entirely over the Play
maker laboratory and showed her the
assembly of stage models designed
by students for the coming Playmaker
production of Prunella. Miss Lewis
expressed pleasure and some sur
prise at the quality of the work the
Playmakers are doing.
DR. BRANSON RETURNS
Dr. E. C. Branson, professor of
rural economics in the University has
returned from a year in Europe,
where he studied rural problems of
several countries at first hand. His
letters from Holland, Denmark and
Germany were syndicated and pub

BOB PICKENS LEAVES
R. S. Pickens, of Albermarle, ed
itor of this year's Yackety-Yack left
Friday morning for Hickory, N. C.
where he will take charge of the daily

bury and a Junior here will take over
the duties of the annual editor.
Grail Gives Dance
Saturday April 11
The Grail is getting plans under
way to stage a big dance here Fri
day night, April 11. This dance will
be on a much bigger scale than the
functions which the Grail puts on at
regular intervals. The Southern Stu
dent Conference meets here on that
date and the representatives of the
conference will be the honorary
guests of the Grail. The Southern
Student Conference is composed of
representatives from all the leading
colleges and universities of the south
who meet once a year to discuss cam
pus problems and to formulate plann
for the betterment of student life.
Last year this conference met in At
lanta. The representatives to that
conference for Carolina were: T. O.
Harmon and Chas. Holshouser. A
very large representation is expect
ed at the Hill for this meeting, and
it is for this reason that the Grail
is providing the dance.
The high school debaters and ath
letic teams will be on the Hill April
2 also, so that this particular week
end will be full of attracttions.
A STUDENT APPLIES FOR
TEMPORARY HUSBAND JOE
Temporarily husbanding has taken
its place along sideof dry nursing as
one of the many self-help jobs open
to University students. Not that it
has proved a success at all, but one
enterprising freshman, whom spring
caught with a rapidly decreasing
pocketbook and a rapid rising of sap
in his veins, hit upon the method as
the one road to wealth.
No doubt the freshman was quite
naive and but little versed in the
ways of this cruel world. Still, he
was apparently a believer in the old
adage "that opportunity knocks but
once," and when the Raleigh News
and Observer carried a perfectly in
nocent advertisement that told about
a charming young lady that wanted
a temporary husband and was will
ing to pay handsomely for the tern.
porary part of it, he felt that oppor
tunity had fairly engulfed him in a
Although he had witnessed but six
teen brief summers since his arrival
upon this green orb, he was, never
theless, at the University and was,
by all process of reasoning a manv
So this beardless youth who but a
short time before had left his mother
back at home, lost no time in getting
in touch with this strange but amor
ous lady. In his shrill tenor voice he
urged the Raleigh central to give the
number that would soon put him on
With his heart beating at a terrific
rate the boy waited. Finally a hello
drifted over the wires and the am
bitious lover poured out his speech
of love. At last he finished and
awaited the reply. Calmly the news
was broken to him that the ad was
merely a motion picture ad and that
everybody was supposed to have
caught on to it. Disappointed, the
Freshman told all his woes and how
he had thought that he would be a
millionaire before night. The ticket
seller laughed and smashed down up
on her Wrigley's.
Strange enough perhaps, the same
picture, the "Temporary Husband"
had been shown at the "Pick" the
night before. The poor deluded
Freshman decided that as a self-help
bureau, Harry Comer was more re
liable than the self-styled "Old Re
liable," and that all millionaires are
not made overnight.
SOCIOLOGY TEACHERS TO
MEET IN CHARLOTTE SOON
The first informal executive meet
ing of teachers of sociology in Sou
thern institutions will be held at the
Hotel Charlotte, Charlotte, North
Carolina, Tuesday and Wednesday,
March 25th and 26th to discuss im
portant matters with reference to so
cial study and research, the organi
zation of departments of sociology, in
creasing of fellowships and scholar
ships, and especially with reference
to certain unified consideration of
race problems. Those who will be
present will include: Mr. T. J. Woof

FOR MARCH OUT
The March Issue Contains Three
Articles of Unusual
"The Alumni Review" for March,
contains three articles of unusual in
terest. A statement from President
Chase, in which he sets two proposals
before the associations, is a feature
of the issue. The University's chief
executive suggests meetings of va
rious Alumni associations each fall,
held for the purpose of inviting en
tering freshmen as guests of the local
Alumni and students, in attempts to
aid in the assimilation of the large
number of first year men entering
annually. He also proposes an an
nual conference of alumni officials,
and of class and local organizations.
A write-up on Carolina's Southern
championship basketball team is the
feature of the issue. A complete rec
ord of the year and two-page review
of the season comprise this article.
The recent boom for Josephus Dan
iels as President of the United States
and Angus McLean's announcement
of his candidacy for gubernatorial
honors furnishes the incentive for a
short article on "Two University
Alumni in the Political Limelight."
An article on the revision of the
Alumni Day program, and the usual
departments, make up the remainder
of the issue.

Supreme Court Judge Spoke to
Law School Association
At the invitation of the University
Law School Association, Judge W. P.
Stacy, of the North Carolina Supreme
Court, gave a talk in Manning Hall
last Friday night.
An audience of law students, fa
culty members and people of Chapel
Hill listened very eagerly to his ex
cellent speech. Professor A. C. Mc
intosh, acting dean of the Law School,
introduced the speaker.
"There is no royal road to success"
he said, "and especially in the law
profession. I have worked hard, and
I think that noone would like to have
He compared the situation as it
is in Washington today with that of
Washington's time. He spoke of
Washington's speech to the constitu
tional convention in Philadelphia,
where representatives from the 13
colonies, all upholding different opin
ions, were floundering at cross pur
poses. He quoted Washington in his
superb words of wisdom when he
begged them to "erect a government
to which the good and the true may
repair for all time. If we insert into
this instrument things that we our
selves do not approve, how can we
expect others to adopt it." He stress
ed that such a spirit should prevail
in Congress and in all the state leg
islatures. In this part of his speech, he gave
a summary of our form of govern
ment and the processes through which
it came to be what it is now He
strongly disproved any efforts which
were now being made towards taking
away some of the powers of the Su
preme Court in giving Congress pow
er to pass laws over the head of the
j Court. "The fathers of this country
were also bent on providing against
the exercise of any tyrannical power
in this country. The accumulation
of all legislative, executive and ju
dicial powers into the same hands,
whether in the hands of one, a few, or
many, is the very definition of tyran
ny. To guard against this, our fore
fathers adopted the great principle
of separation of powers, and the
same is embodied in all our written
Then he spoke on the absolute ne
cessity of the legal profession remain
ing clean and upright. He showed
that the existence of the legal and
political institutions in this country
are based on the mental equipment
and moral stamina of the individual
citizen. The standard of profession
al men must always be kept at the
very highest, he said.
Lawyers should always carry on
their cases on a high and clean level.
"If a man is out to make a fortune,
he better go into some other business,
and not the legal profession, for that
is not a place to make quantities of
money, but a place for service, and
the right-spirited kind of service."
He ended by pressing upon the
minds of his hearers the great oppor-

PENDY ORDERS ANOTHER
NEW MODEL STUDEBAKER
Pendy's new bus that made its ap
Dearance last week is now making
six round trips to Durham each day.
It is a new model Studebaker seat
ing from twelve to sixteen people,
according to the size of the passen
gers. Pendy says that it is better
than anv jitney because its weight
makes it ride easier and its seventy
five horse power engine is capable of
Dullinir it at sixty miles an hour. One
of its special features is a dust cov
ered case for carrying baggage which
will eliminate the mud and rain that
has ruined so many traveling bags.
In addition to the one now on the

of the same make. It will arrive
within the next ten days. Then the
schedule will be rearranged to include
an extra trip, making ten round trips

champions last year, in a meet held

The feature of the afternoon was
the shattering of the state hie-h school

spear a distance of 145 and one half

RECEIVED FROM PRESS
The February issue of "The High
School Journal," published by the
University School of Education, has
just been received from the press. It
is a special number devoted to high
school athletics under the direction,
as usual, of Dr. N. W. Walker, editor
of the publication.
The contents, for the most part.
deal with some phase of high school
athletics. E. R. Rankin, Secretary of
the recently organized North Caro
lina High School Athletic Association,
contributes a timely article, in which
the constitution of the association is
printed in full. There is also a short
write-up on the Athletic Association
of North Carolina girls, Chester D.
Snell, of the University Extension
Division, in an article entitled "Physi
cal Education and State Athletic
Contests," shows the need for proper
physical education courses in the cur
ricula of North Carolina high schools.
G. D. Goover, contributing a eeneral
article on "High School Athletics,"
lays stress on the financial end of
the game. The usual departments
and columns also appear in the cur
rent number, which is one of the best
of recent issues.
The Sociology Department of the
University of Kansas sent out
questionnaires to thirty co-eds upon
the qualifications of an acceptable
husband. Twenty-two checked as a
first requisite financial ability. Love

INTO GOOD SHAPE
In Spite of the Bad Weather
Coach Bill Is Having Daily
In spite of the bad March weath
er, Coach Bill Fetzer is rapidly
rounding his team into shape and the
Varsity is gradually assuming defi
nite form. So far the schedule has
not been released and the date of the
opening game is unknown to the pub
lic. However college baseball opens
its season shortly and the Universi
ty team will have to swing into ac
tion early in April. Rumors have it
that the first game will be with
Guilford on the third of April.
Only Sweetman, McLean and Shir
ley are missing from last year's team
and Coach Shepherd's 1923 freshman
team is out almost in its entirety in
an effort to grab a berth. The in
field is the problem before the coach
and he is experimenting with sever
al men at first and third.
"Rabbit" Bonner, Cartwright Car-
michael and Hoot Gibson look like
the trio of outfielders. Bonner is a
full-fledged veteran, Carmichael took
up his job last year and Gibson was
frequently substituted at center and
lightfield. Bonner is also an excel
lent catcher and was used during
the first of last season while Morris
was suffering with a bad arm.
In the infield only Monk McDon
ald seems absolutely certain of a
place. Recently he has been moved
from his time honored position at
short to take Joe McLean's place at
second. Johnson, shortstop on last
year's freshman team has been play
ing shortstop in the practice games
and is generally regarded as the best
bet in case McDonald is kept at sec
ond base. Charlie Thomas, captain
of last year's freshman team is work
ing for third and Starling, another
Oak Ridge boy, is trying out for both
third and second. Starling was a
regular last season and is practicul
ly certain of a place in the infield.
The problem of getting a fust add
flashy first Backer to succeed "Mule"
Shirley promises to be a tough prop
osition. At present "Touchdown"
Jones and John Coffee are staging a
battle royal but as to who will fin
ally end in possession of the be" pro
bably isn't known by even Coach
Thus far there has been no captain
elected to succeed Mule Shirley. Mc
Donald or Bonner are generally con
sidered by the campus as boing the
most likely choice. McDonald has
been a three letter man and haa ex
celled in every branch of athletics
that he has entered. This season in
baseball is his last at Carolina. He
was captain of the 1923 baseball team
and is undoubtedly one of the most
popular athletes that has ever at
tended the University.
Bonner was a star player on the
baseball team last season and was
the outstanding halfback on the foot
ball team last fall.
Dr. Tigert Spoke
To Student Body
Dr. John J. Tigart, head of the
Federal Bureau of Education, a Van-
derbilt graduate, and a Rhodes schol
ar, spoke briefly on the general bene
fits of education to a community last
Monday in Chapel.
He emphasized the point that edu
cation was necessary for a general in
crease in wealth. He offered this as
the primary reason for North Caro
lina's great strides foward within the
past few years. He stated that the
State had been most fortunate in
having leaders who realized that gen
eral education was necessary if the
State were to go forward and get out
of the rut in which it found itself as
a result of the Civil War.
Thus it is, as a result of the vision
that such men as Aycock, Mclver, and
Alderman had of developing the
State's enormous natural resources
through education that North Caro
lina is now first in industry and in
prosperity among all the Southern
