Carolina took its sixth consecutive de
feat In 'as many years from Yale last
Saturday wheiT the Bulldog carried off
a 27 to 0 bone of victory. Although
beaten, as predicted by all dbpesters,.the
Tar Heels gave old Eli a bard fight and
forced them to use their first string men
during most of the game. K- r
During all save the second quarter the
Yale eleven carried the fight to the Tar
Heels, but in this period ", the Carolina
machine took the ball into Bulldog ter
ritory and really outplayed their oppon
ents. -The first .Yale touchdown came
after seven minutesof .play when Spar
row's fumble of a punt was recovered
by the Bulldog center who ran 20 yards
- for a touchdown.. They scored -again
in this same period after a series of line
plays and forward passes-- The other
two touchdowns were scored one each in
'' the third and fourth quarters and came
as a result of sustained offensives, line
. plunges bringing the first, and end runs
the second. " ! - " v ;
Yale was far superior to the Tar Heels
in every department of the game. Caro
jjna gained most of their ground by
line plays, their end runs for the most
part being smothered,, while they were
; unable to complete a single pass. On
defense theBiue and White line showed
. up strong. They held the heavy Yale
backs well and averted a touchdown once
by holding for downs on the five-yard
-Jine. Carolina's backfield failed to come
up to the Standard of the line on de
fense, allowing-every attempted pass by
,, the northerners to be completed.
George Sparrow luade tiie longest-' rb
for the Tar Heels when he reeled off
faking a kick ' Jeff Fordham, Dill, and
Spratt Cobb all got . in the game in the
backfield besides the starting line-up.
... Several passes were tried with Cobb
doing the hurling, but all proved unsuc
cessful, Yale's defense being too strong.
In the line- Hogan, Whisnant, Farrell
and Robinson were given a chance. Whis
. nant relieved Chris Fordham and played
, ail of the last half, making a good show
ing. Jack Merritt got off several long
boots, his punting being on a par with
that offered by the Bulldog backs. ,
Mclver kicked off for Carolina. ; After
: a few minutes of play' during which
Yale had gained 20: yards they kicked
to Carolina. Unable to gain, Sparrow
kicked back. Yale returned the kick
and Sparrow's fumble was recovered by
the Bulldog center who ran 20 yards
for a touchdown. Yale elected to kick
and sent the ball to Devin. Carolina
kicked back and Yale started an offen
sive that ended in a touchdown. Cottle

Bruce Curry Conducts Course
in Bible Study.
LASTED OVER WEEK END

. - " Have Delegates There.
Seven LTniversity men uttended ,the
Bible Institute that was conducted in
Raleigh during the past week, and last
ed from Friday, October 3, through Sun-
' day, October 5. The Institute was con
ducted by Bruce Curry, one of the great
est men in the country connected with
Bible study. Mr. Curry discussed two
wmes of Bible study, agreement and dis
agreement. He said that the Bible should
be studied with disagreement, because
by this method of study one fits the cogs
of the Bible with thexogs of one's own
life so it will show itself in action. The
-problem approach was presented by
. three p'si problems, principles and pro
gram. The idea is to get the problem,
then the principles from the Bible, both
positive, and negative, then a construc
tive progranTto- be carried out in each'
one's life. -
The following students of the Uni
versity attended the institute: W. W.
Gwyn, J. L, Smith, II. T. Thompson,
E. A. Farrell,- Frasier" Glenn, George
Stephens, Jr., and W. H. Coltrane. There
were also representatives from N. C.
State, Trinity, Wake Forest, Meredith,

Student Moves Out On
Fire Escape In Vance
An absolutely new departure has been
made in the matter of securing rooming
accommodations. A member of the stu
dent "Body, whose name does not appear
startled all beholders one morning re
cently when the cold, cruel light of day
revealed that he had taken up his quar
ters" on the fire escape in Vance dormitory.-
". " .
In spite of his best efforts, however,
his quarters appeared to lack many of
the comorts of a house. A bed, a trunk
and one feeble little electric light adorn
ed this poor semblance of a home. " The
light still burned on long after the. calm,
peaceful Sabbath sun had risen, but the
occupant was nowhere to be seen.
The reason for this startling innova
tion has not come to light, so far. Per
haps it will remain one of the great mys
teries; perhaps morewill be learned of
the fate of this luckless freshman who
was forced to leave his room in the dead
of night and take refuge with the fowls
of the air. ' - ' " .

Last Friday afternoon Emerson field
saw. a snappy exhibition of football be
tween the" freshman team and the var
sity scrubs the scrubs coming off the
field with the big end of a 13 to 0 score.
" For a team which has had only a week
of hard practice, and knowingonly" a
few signals as yet, the freshmen played
unusually " well. There were numerous
substitutions, v In fact, when the game
ended both teams had a comparatively
new line-up, except for Bunn Hackney,
scrub quarterback. - ' -
Isor," freshman back, showed up unr
usually well on offensive playing mak
ing several large gains on end runs.
' The scrubs' first touchdown occurred
in the first quarter when they took the
ball for nearly half the length of the
field, making their gains mostly on end
runs. The second downfall of the fresh
men wasthe result of a forward pass on
the part of the scrubs, netting them a
30-yard gain, and only a few yards to
go for a touchdown, which they made
on the third down around end and kick
ed goal. '
The freshmen uncovered their aerial
attack five times, : three of them suc
ceeding for fairly 'large gains.. No man
on the freshman squad is sure of his
place ' as . yet. Itis too early in the

Miss Draper Declares That Her Work

By Lccy F. Lay
"My work makes the highest possi

audience always reflects the credit on
me but it is really their ability and con

characters which I portray."
Miss Ruth Draper stood on the lit

from deep "thinking with the mind, the
heart and the emotions. .
"I never mimic j I am a character that

person so . deeply that I have to jerk
myself out of.-the characterization before

been taken from real incidents or from
suggestions. They have come out of
my mind, the result of indirect observa
tion. ; Out of 30 or 35 sketches, only
four or five can be called the results of
direct observation. A visit to Ellis Is
land suggested the Scotch immigrant,
and the Irish sketch which I use was
suggested by a peasant I once saw while
bicycling through Ireland several years

New songs and yells have been an
nounced for the Trinity football game
here Saturday afternoon, according to
announcement by L. V. Huggins, Uni
versity cheer leader, who expects, all
students to know these songs and yells
by next Saturday afternoon.
Huggins is making great efforts to
give Carolina some peppy cheering this
year, and he has been working hard to
formulate a cheering program for the
present year. : '
Not as many pep meetings as In the
past will be held this year, Huggins
states, but the pep - meetings that are
held -will be more elaborate affairs than
those of recent years. One of the most
unique features of the first pep meeting
of the year, before the Wake Forest
game,' was the attendance of President
Chase, who made an address to the foot
ball team supporters.
Huggins also plans this year to have
a special co-eds cheering section, and
asks that the co-eds learn all University
songs and yells. . - ,

' Furnish Sweet Strains of Music
Until the Clock Strikes 12.
The dance committee of the Order of
the Grail is bus making final arrange
ments for the first dance of the order
this year, which will be given in Bynum
gymnasium Saturday night. The com
mittee in charge is striving to make this
dance an unusual success, since the stu
dent body will more or less judge Grail
dances by this Initial one.
Realizing that much of the success of
a dance depends upon the music, Gordon
Weeks, of the dance committee,' has
booked the Piedmont Strollers of Dur
ham to play for the dance. -Publicity
for the dance has been put under way
by the Grail and it is expected that, a
large number of girls from out of town
will attend the affair. Especially are
visiting ' girls expected In light of the
fact that the Trinity game will be played
on Emerson field in the afternoon. Al
ready numbers of boys have invited girls
down for the week-end and it 'Ifl ex-,
pected that a good number will be pres
ent. : . ';
; Since , this dance is to be the first of
the year it will afford students the op
portunity of meeting the new co-eds who
have chosen to take work at the Uni
versity. Many boys are looking forward
to the dance as a means of becoming
acquainted with Chapel Hill's own, as
well as meeting some of the visiting
girls.. ' . ..
Dancing will begin at 9 and will con

Work of the Art Staff is a Very Strik

By The Crossroads
"Tke Tar Baby got stuck and Th
Boll Weevil was exterminated; but the
Buccaneer is not going to walk the
plank.". Business Manager Gold Is re
sponsible for this optimism j whether or
not he Is right remains to be seen.
With the Verdant number, Carolina's
pirate crew has launched its craft for
its first long voyage. The trial cruise
of last year proved successful to a grati
fying extent. This year the Buccaneer
will wander alone on the high-seas of
humor with the hope of later joining
the fleet and swapping the Jolly Roger
for the . standard of the Publications
Union. . '
The first number this vear strikes lis
as being in every way the best Bucca
neer which has yet appeared. It is only
reasonable to assume that improvement
will take place throughout' the year) if
the assumption proves correct, Carolina
will shortly have a comic which will do
her due credit. ' ' "
The" cover is the first thing that calls
for attention; ergo, the cover Is excep
tionally good. It Is appropriate and
possesses life without feminine anatomy

The content is varied and original ;
there is a pleasing lack of the stuff so
often prominent In college comics as
merely filling. Most of the material Is
snort ana there are some genuine laughs.

to be congratulated on its' staff of art

from the usual cartoons, there is an
especially!, good double spread" and a
full page portrait study. It is a cer
tain thing that the cuts determine the
quality of a college comic, and if the
Buccaneer maintains the standard . of
art work evident in the first number It
will fll whflf flAB bppn in hlnff vnld

All of the work is from University
students; no exchanges are used. This,
too, is deserving of compliment, and Is
a rather, notable departure from our
former humorous publications. On the
whole the Verdant Number creates
favorable impression and we know that
we voice the sentiment of a long-suffer
ing study body in hoping that it will
continue to do so.
