new pages of literary endeavor

the author for his nom-de-plume.
However, the article does advance

The sub-title to Dynamite labels
the story as one with a kick. We
wonder if the author anticipated what
the reviewer might say? The story
possesses a possible plot and it is
handled fairly well, though the con

Two hooded figures with golden fleeces thrown across their

tapped four seniors and five juniors for membership into the
umque honor organization Friday night. The figures whose
identity was unknown to the large crowd that filled Memorial
Hall, silently went about their task with a slow precision that kept
tne spectators tense all during the ceremony.
ThLactual taPPin& took ut little time for the silent tappers

football and baseball player. The owd rose to its" feet to get a glimpse of
the selected, while the ribbons were being placed upon his lapel. After a long
wait, during which the silent figures slowly passed in and out, one of them
suddently swept down upon Henry Fuller, Phi Beta Kappa man, writer and
Y. M C. A. Worker. He was completely taken off his guard and had to face
the cheers of the crowd with a reddening face.

of track and wrestling and playmaker, and John Devton. interll,VWo

the occasion. Introduced by Professor Horace Williams, who aided greatly
m organizing the Golden Fleece, as one of the best orators of the day, he
rose t.n hpiclltc rf nlmiir.rt v
..umjueLeiy swayea nis audience and con
vinced them as to the truth of Professor William's introduction.
i am rejoiced to stand Deiore luture leaders ot North Carolina. This
is a great body of potential leaders," said Dr. Smith. "These mon PlrBA
ior uoioen rieece are but a few yards ahead in the great Marathon of life.
Time may change the order."
"First a man must learn to work wisely, hardly, efficientlv. successful
ly. He must cultivate the habit, the ability to undergo the daily grind and
drugery in the pursuit of a chosen object." This was Dr. Smith's first re
quisite for a leader. The second lesson was that a man must learn to fight.
Speaking of life as a great game, he added, "but also a battle in which a
real man must make his way against enemies of right. Daily fights on the
campus come to every student or else he isn't a fighter. Fight wisely, and
may God teach you what is right."
"Learn to love." This was the speaker's third lesson. "Wisely, whole
heartedly, persistently. Our civilization reaches its culmination not in edu
cation or conquest but in love. The leader must have love, sympathy and
service. Love lightens the universal burden, and gives to poor mortals
harmonious heaven itself. The leader of today must draw men and women
to him. The day of driving is past. Love is the greatest magnet."
"Learn to grow," was the last lesson of the speaker and he unravelled
the story of the giant oaks on the campus in their growth, and likened the
development of man to them. "Youth is the time to grow. In the plastic
time of life, learn to grow like the flowers in the springtime! Like the oak,
grow in breadth, in depth and in height!
"Grow in breadth bv obtaining new thoughts and ideas, new noints of
the story of the eternal characters of, vieW( in a multiply of interests like the branches of the oak. In this
Pierrot and Pierrette and the cos- j d f sp7cilaization do not become narrow minded. Just as the axe
needs the heavy weight of steel behind the keen cutting edge to bite into
the wood, so does the breadth o knowledge give weight to the cutting edge
of the specialist. This growth gives breadth of sympathy and knowledge;
its roots deep in order to get a firm foundation seek to give depth to your
"Height similar to that of the oak's should be sought, height towards
the blue sky, and eternal heaven. Seek the mountain top, the uphill trail to
the tonic air. Rough, yes, but the same path all immortal leaders have taken
to the heights."

In Chapel Friday
Friday Morning at Chapel period,
Lieutenant Brown of Camp Bragg,
and General Albert Cox of Raleigh,
a graduate of the University, spoke
to the student body on the Citizens
Military Training Camp and urged
that as many students as possible
should attend the camp during the
Lieutenant Brown urged all stu
dents to attend the camp because it
teaches young men how to keep fit
and take care of themselves.- He
ended his short talk by saying' that it
increases one's patriotism, and makes
his stand up for his country whether
it be in the right or wrong.
General Cox said that the Citizen
Military Training Camp is a moral
well as a military and physical
training camp, and that it supplies a
man with a reserve force. He also
stated that the Camp Bragg Officials
pay especial attention to the athletic
side and endeavor to promote the
"Game" Spirit in a fellow. The need
for reserve officers in case of another
war was also emphasized by General
From its victory over Trinity, but
with its thirst for blood the Wolf
pack of State colleges will come to
Carolina Saturday snarling and
growling for Carolina blood. With
the state championship almost in its
ferasp, it will put forth a mighty ef
fort to take both the game here and
the game in Raleigh Monday. A
Carolina baseball season is never
quite satisfactory, without a win over
State. The Tar Heels will dig in
their toes and fight, as they always
do against State, just a little harder,
with just a little more spirit, than
against anyone elseexcept Virginia.
State comes with the odds slightly
in her favor. She has lost only one
game to a North Carolina team, losing
to Trinity early in the season. Last
Thursday she wiped that defeat out
by a healthy score. As she comes
to Carolina, she stands as the lead
ing contestant for state honors.
Once before, about a year ago, an
N. C. State team which looked good
for the championship met Carolina.
The results are history, State went
down, hit the taboggin and kept go
ing. Will history repeat?
Carolina has not the impressive
state record that her opponent has.
She has lost to Lenoir, Davidson, and
Wake-Forest. Outside the state she
looks better, with three wins over
Virginia, and a clean slate on her
northern trip. Carolina has a habit
of upsetting the "Dope" and the
"dope" favors State slightly.
Both schools are expected to turn
out en masse for the games. Hun
dreds of State boys and supporters
will pour into Chapel Hill Saturday.
Many Carolina students have already
signified their intention of going to
Raleigh for the game Monday.
Given a real baseball day, the rival
bands in full blast, a battle royal be
tween two long rivals, you have
the baseball classic of the state.
Just whom coach Doak will pitch
Saturday no one knows. Captain
Allen will certainly pitch one of the
two games. If Allen does not start
Saturday, Hill or Redfern will be
used. In any case the Tar Heels will
face a worthy foe. ,
Captain Bryson will probaly be on
the mound for Carolina in Satur
day's game. Bryson has been going
well all season and can be depended
upon to give the Wolfpack plenty
trouble. In case Bryson starts
Saturday Ferebee will most likely be
used Monday. Ferebee got off to a
late start this year but seems to bo
working fine now. Although a little
wild, he pitched a creditable game
fjgainst Hampde)i-pidney, only
allowing them four well scattered
Both teams will likely use much
the same line-up that they have used
in the last few games. Carmi-
chael's injury will probaly keep him
out. His loss will be a blow to the
Tar Heels, for ho is a dependable
player who hits well. After Charmi-
chael was removed in the Hampden-
Sidney game, Coffey was shifted to
center and Jones sent to right field.
This seems to be the most likely
choice for the State games. Caro
lina's only other doubtful position is
at third. Starling and Thomas have
run a pretty race for this position
all season. Thomas has a little better
batting average but lack the ex
perience of Starling. Starling has
been coach Fetzer's choice for most
of the games so-far, and will proba
ly caper around third against State.
