TAR BABY CREW
BY SCORE OF 19-7
Carolina Played Good Football
Against S. C. Neighbors
and Chalk Up Victory.
FERRELL PLAY S WELL
. Touchdowns Are Made by Isor and
Ferrell South Carolinians Cross
Goal Line One Time.
The game between the U. N. C. Fresh
men and, the University of South Caro
lina 1 Biddies, at Columbia, S. C, turned
out to be an easy victory for the Tar
Babies, who piled up the big end of
19 to 7 score.
Carolina played a brilliant offensive
game all the time, while the Biddies were
kept mostly , on the rundef ending their
goal. Ferrell turned out to be the big
gest ground gainer for the Tar Heels,
while Izor played an erratic game, flash-
in ud wnn several soou trains, ana then
falling short, Tenfley, Shepard, Simp
son' and Wllkins all did consistent work
in short gains.
.The first touchdown occurred in the
initial quarter. The Tar Babies carried
the ball to within one foot of the goal,
only to be penalized IS yards for hold
ing. The Biddies kicked back to their
33-yard line, but Carolina, running " it
back five yards, was determined to score.
Two first downs were reeled off in rapid
succession .and Izor carried the ball over,
Shepard kicking goal
The first half saw most of the play
ing in the enemy's field, with Carolina
usually in possession of the ball. The
Biddies seemed afraid to keep the pig
skin when they got it, and only once
did they take up the offensive.
South Carolina received at the open
ing of the second - half. Wannamaker,
South Carolina's outstanding star, made
gain after gain. The Biddies made six
successive first downs, putting them in
reach of the goal. Wimberley carried
the ball across and Swink evened the
score by kicking goal. "
Carolina retaliated with a defensive
drive which completely swamped the

gained consistently and put the ball
within five yards of the goal. Tenney
made one yard, Simpson came within
six inches of scoring, and Ferrell rushed
it across. - .
South Carolina received and barely
missed making first down by an inch.
Carolina was again penalized 15 yards,
but Ferrell followed it up by a spec
tacular 43-yard run around end. Izor
made four, Simpson 14, and Ferrell four.
South Carolina was penalized half of the
eight remaining yards, and Izor carried
the ball over for the third touchdown.
The game ended a few seconds later
with the ball on South Carolina's 24-yard
line. ' '" ,' ;. '

The ladies of the town have arisen
gallantly to the occasion, and have con
tributed 100 homemade cakes for the
physical enjoyment of the first 100 men
who cross the line. Mr. Neal, of the
Chapel Hill bakery, is ' going to give
a prize cake to the dormitory which has

finishes within the first ten places will
be given a one-week vacation with full
pay. If the winner , of the race is a
Swain hall man, he will be given two
weeks' vacation with pay.
All sprinters are urged to begin light
practice at once. On the same day as
the cake race they will be given a chance
to show what they can do in a "handi
cap sprint" for a cake. The distance
will be either 100 or 220 yards.
Men of known ability will run the full
distance, others will be given handicaps
up to eight yards. All sprinters or dash

the larie, up Cameron across the campus,
back to the stadium and around the
track to the finishing point.
Last year 125 men participated in the
race. The first 100 of these to finish

Peanut, Popcorn and Chewing

v Big Celebration.
N U M B E R OF SIDESHOWS
Co-Eds Offering Naive Freshmen
Trip Through Hell for Small Sum
of CooL Cold Cash.
If you like cake and can't run; If you
prefer to eat peanuts more than to throw
them; if you want to come to the gym
for once without taking exercise; if you
want to get a foretaste of hell without
dying; if your best girl hasn't sent you
any candy lately, it has been said that
you had better be sure not to miss the
annual Hallowe'en carnival given by the
Woman's association in the gym next
Friday night at 8:30. .
' For the sum of only 25 cents admis
sion may be had to all the various booths
and side shows, which willjine the sides
of the gym, with the exception of the
fortune tellers' tents and a safe and
sane trip to hell..
: The booths will be the products of the
ingenuity and originality of the co-eds
in charge of them, and promise to be
different from anything ever seen before.
In the corners of the hall there will be
the tents of the fortune tellers, who, for
the crossing of their palm with a bit of
silver, guarantee to give, you a pleasant
and profitable reading of ,, your hand.
These palmists are undoubtedly the best
that are to be found in Chapel Hill and
know whereof they speak. The full list
of the attractions has not yet been made
public, but anyone who went to any of
the preceding ones will be willing to
vouch for them. -
In the center of the hall there will
be erected a platform on which the vari
ous acts and stunts will be given free
and without charge for the benefit of
the general public. The Freshman
Friendship Council is co-operating with
the association in this part of the pro
gram in an effort to make it more than
an average success. Among their vari
ous numbers, it is announced, will be one
consisting of a burlesque band. '
' In the course of the evening the grand
event will be held on this platform. This
will be the raffling off of a cake by an
attractive co-ed (or vice versa).
Home-made candy, peanuts, popcorn
and apples will be sold by the attend
ants, in the various booths, who will be
dressed as witches, gypsies and ghosts.
The hall will be decorated suitably for
the occasion. . "
The feature attraction of the whole
show will be "A Trip , to Hell" which
will be found in the bas'ementvof, the
gym. To tell what will happen there is
impossible, but it will run true to form
in the matter of attendants, who will
either have mercy on you and guide you
through safely or leave you to wander
helplessly through its fearful paths. Go
through this and Dante won't have a
thing on you even if he did divide his
up into nine varieties of hells. It is
rumored that an accommodating skele
ton has consented to make the place
somewhat more homelike for the med.
students and to show the bare facts to
the other visitors.;
There won't be a dull moment in the
whole evening for either the freshman

BIG CAMPUS-WIDE STRAW ELECTION
Students Urged to Vote and Vote Seriously on President and
Waterway and Port Terminal Bill Republicans Have
Shown Strength in Debates Held in the Phi
and Di Societies.
A straw vote for president will be held
Friday by the Tar Hff.l for the students
and faculty, with polls opening at 11
a. m. and closing at 8 p.m. Much inter
est has been manifested on the campus
and an apparently growing sentiment in
favor of breaking away from party lines,
shown by recent debates In the two
literary societies, has called for the hold
ing of a straw election to determine how
the students stand. C. R. Jonas, Repub
lican leader on the campus, claims tbat
there will be a heavier vote for Coolidge
than generally expected.
In addition to the presidential straw
vote, a straw referendum will be held
at the same time on the "Waterway and
Port Terminals Bill" which has stirred
up considerable Interest and argument
among the students as well as the fac
ulty. Bill Cocke, president of the student
body," in heartily endorsing the proposed
campus-wide election, stated that he hop

; The Phi society, in its regular meeting
Saturday night, was fortunate in hav
ing Dr. Branson, who favors the ports

standpoint, and Dr. Collier Cobb, who
maintains that the plan will never suc
ceed because- of geological peculiarities
of the Eastern Carolina coast, to. pre
sent the results of the study they have
made of the subject. Dr. Cobb's address
was brief, and was primarily an answer
to the statement made recently concern
ing the" relation of Dr. Branson's atti
tude toward the measure, which attitude,
it was alleged, might have effect on fu
ture University appropriations from the
Speaking at considerable length on the
subject, Dr. Branson stated very clearly
that his . attitude toward the proposal
Was the result of careful study and a
desire to present the question fairly, in
the light of the fact that no question
in the past century has been of deeper
significance for the people of North Car
olina than has this one.
Dr. Cobb's reply to this address was
brief, and had to do with the geological
impracticability of the scheme.! He re
ferred the members of the assembly to
the report in Saturday's Newt and Ob-
terver of his recent speech in chapel.
Keen interest in discussion of bills,
larger attendance of members, and a dis
play of rejuvenation of spirit in every
phase of the assembly's activities, has
characterized the meetings of the society
this year. ' Since the renovation of the
hall and the installation of new furnish
ings several weeks ago, a very tangible
awakening of Interest has permeated the
Ph assembly hall, and everything points
to a decidedly successful year to come,

after brief discussion. The ports and

LAW LAYS HAND
HEAVY ON SELF
Forced to Check-Flashing, He
Is Arrested and
FIVE DOLLARS A WEEK
Was Unable to Earn Sufficient to Buy
Food Efforts Being Made to
Raise Bond Money.
; The tragedy of a self-help student,
working his way through college but
unable to make sufficient money to keep
his soul and body together, reached its
climax last week when one of the village
cops arrested a third year student in
the; University Cafeteria on the charge
of check-flashing. Immediately after his
arrest the boy was suspended from the
University and lodged In the town jail.
I The arrest of the student follows a
long period of check giving on his part.
Back In March, on the 11th and 20th, he
gave Checks to the cafeteria on his own
overdrawn account.' Then on October 1
he gave a check signed John E. Mitchell,
again on the 8th another signed Elliott
Fox, and on the 15th he wrote a check
that has not yet been returned through
On October 23 he presented the cafe
teria with a check signed Lee Smith.
The manager's suspicions had centered
upon him and when asked to endorse it,
he .wrote his own name. The officer was
then called in, and not having the cafe
teria warrant which had already been
sworn out against the student, he was
arrested on a warrant sworn out by
Gooch's cafe for worthless checks given
that firm in his own name.
So far as is known, the boy has never
written a check for money, but merely
for board at the rate of $3 per week.
A University professor for whom he had
worked during odd hours, stated to a
Tar Heel reporter that lie knew of no
other dishonest act charged, to the boy.
This same professor went on his bail for
three days In an effort, to keep him out
of the jail.
With both his father and mother dead,
penniless and in jail, and suspended
from.. the JUliivewtjv, ilia young mnn fa
in very unfortunate straits. Efforts have
been made by Interested parties to make
good the checks, but the cafeteria man
ager refuses, stating that the desire is
to make him an example for other check
flashers that are enrolled in the college,
by taking it through the courts. It is
thought that the case will be tried by
the local magistrate, but as the amount
involved is over $30, the case can be
taken into higher court. It is thought,
however, that such action will not be
taken, as it will be December before the
case can be called if that Is done.
. In the meantime, Pierce Matthews,
football captain, is raising money among
the Asheville students and friends 6f the
boy to go on his bond in an effort to
get him out from behind the burs.
Emilie Rose Knox
Plays Here Tomorrow Night
Emilie Rose Knox, well known violin
ist, will appear in Memorial hall on
Thursday October 30, under the auspices
of Wigue and Masque.
Miss Knox is a native of Raleigh, and
is no stranger to Chapel Hill. In her
childhood she was a frequent visitor
here, and found some of her most ardent
admirers among the students and towns
people of Chapel Hill. Since her first
professional engagement five years ago.
Miss Knox has never missed giving at
least one concert here each year. In No
vember she sails for Europe, where she
will spend two years in study at the ex
pense of the Woman's club and the Ki
wanis club of Raleigh. It is at her re
quest that she is returning here this
year, for in a recent letter to a member,
of the music department she said: "I
cannot leave without the memory of
one more concert on the Hill. I am
always thrilled to come to the Univer
sity." Last year Miss Knox appeared with
Colin O'More, noted tenor, and vast au
diences recognized her as a genuine art
ist. She had planned to make her New
York debut this fall, but the oppor
tunity for further study has caused her
to abandon the idea until later.
Her corning to Memorial hall October
30 will be watched with Interest by the
hundreds of people who have heard her.
After her regular concert heretofore she
has played on the steps of Memorial hall
to a throng of students, her concert here
consisting of college songs and popular
tunes. '"" -"-.

FIELD GOALS IN
DEFEAT U. N. C.
Two Drop Kicks by Hall Gives
Maryland Hard Fought
DECREASE IN PENALTIES
University Misses Many Chances to
Score Hasn't Completed a Pass
Yet Team Fought Well.
,' ( '. 1
The Maryland Terrapins worked slow
ly on Emerson field last Saturday, but
they worked surely and two field goals
by fullback Hall in the final quarter
gave the Old Liners a 6 and 0 victory
over the Tar Heels. One of Hall's kicks
was from the 40-yard line and was one
of the prettiest ever seen on the , field
! The two teams were pretty evenly
matched and the Maryland victory was
due largely to the fact "hat the Old
Liners made the most of their opportun
ities while Carolina let some splendid
chances to score go by. Both the Mary
land drop kicks came in the last quarter
when it appeared that the, game would
in all probability end in a scoreless tie.
Maryland seemed to strengthen in the
last half and the last quarter was all
hers. The third period ended with the
ball in Maryland's possession on Caro
lina's 48-yard line. Two successful passes
carried the ball 15 yards and on the
fourth down Hall stepped back and sent
the ball whirling through the goal posts.
It was a' beautiful kick from the 40-yard
line, one of the prettiest ever seen on
Emerson -field. "Again a few minutes
later when a blocked punt gave Mary--land
the ball deep in Carolina's terri
tory, Hall again kicked a field goal, this
time from the 2fl-yard line, :,
Both , teams missed touchdowns by .
fractions. Once when a Maryland man
recovered a punt by one of his team
mates that had been touched as it rose
over the Carolina line he had a free field,
but he did not realize that it was a free
ball until too late. In the last quarter
with Maryland leading by six points
and with the stands praying for a touch
down, Dcvin dropped a pass that had
ha lirld would have, meant a touchdown,
for he hud an open field. Epstein missed
a chance to bring glory to himself and
Carolina in this same period when he
was unable to pick up a fumble behind
the Maryland line in time to get started
for the goal line. A Carolina man in
the squirming pile of gridmen was try
ing frantically to get the ball and his
interference probably kept "Ep" from
making a touchdown.
The punting of Merritt and Sparrow
was a feature oi the game. ' Their boots'
sailed much farther than those of their
opponents, while the good work of Mat
thews and Epstein kept the Maryland
backs from returning very far. Carolina
gained on almost every : exchange of
punts and during the first quarter it was
the kicking almost entirely that .put the
Tar Heels deep in Maryland's territory
and in position to score.
This was Carolina's best chance of the
game. 'After an exchange of punts Mer
ritt kicked outside on Maryland's one
foot line. It was a remarkable punt,
perfectly judged. Maryland kicked back
and it was Carolina's ball on the 25-yard
line. An end run by Merritt garnered
eight yards and Sparrow made It first
down by plunging the line. Jeff Ford
ham added three more yards. Carolina
was penalized five yards for offsides.
Merritt and Sparrow were taken out
and Underwood and Devin substituted.
Three passes were incomplete and the
ball went over. This was the closest that
the Tar Heels ever got to the Maryland
goal. During the rest of the game they
were kept mostly on the defensive and
never again got as good a chance for a
During the last half Carolina got the
ball on Maryland's 45-yard line when
Epstein recovered a fumble and Cobb
was sent in to pass fn an effort to save
the game. He appeared to be nervous
and both his tries were wild. Hackney
went in and, during the few moments
that he had, played an excellent game.
He was called on to do. some horling and
passed accurately, but on the first try
Devin dropped the ball and Maryland
intercepted the second throw.
A most encouraging thing about the
contest for Carolina was the fact that
the total number of yards lost because
of penalties was only 30, which is quite
a bit of improvement over the other
