TAR BABIES TO MEET UNDEFEATED
VIRGINIA FRESHMAN OUTFIT TODAY .
IN SEASON'S LAST GAME AT HOME
Visiting Freshmen Have n't
Been Licked in Two Years.. .
1924 RECORD IS GOOD
Have Already Defeated Four of
the Strongest Teams in the
South Atlantic States.
TAR BABIES ARE , UNDEFEATED
But N. C. State Freshman Team Gave
Them Hard and Tough Battle On
Emerson Field Last Saturday.
Die Virginia Frosh, undefeated for
two years, will invade Emerson field this
afternoon in their last game of the year
with high hopes of licking the Tar Ba
bies. Last year the Young Cavaliers de
cisively defeated the. University year
lings at Charlottesville although the Car
olina freshman team of 1923 was one of
the strongest ever produced here. To
day's game is the last college game on
Emerson field this year. ;
Coach H. D. Thomas, Virginia's fresh
man coach, left for Chapel Hill yester
day In a special car with his players, and
expects to close the 1924 season with a
victory. Rushion, Rutter, Cardwell and
McCafferty seem to be his four favorite
backfleld men and will probably start
the game. Rushion is an excellent broken-field
runner, deadly passer, and con
sistent drop kicker. '
The Tar Babies will probably begin
with the same line-up that held the State
college Whelps to a 7-7 tie here last
Saturday. However, it is claimed by
some who have been following practice
this week that the coaches will make a
number of changes in an effort to bolster
up both the offensive and defensive de
partments, In an effort to cope with the
unusually strong team that is coming
down from Virginia. .
The freshman teams of Washington
and Lee, Virginia Military institute, Uni
versity of Maryland, and Virginia Poly
technic institute have all been soundly
defeated by the Virginia Frosh. Under
the new" ruling of "the Southern confer
ence only five games are allowed fresh
man teams and today's contest ends their
The Tar Babies have not suffered de
feat this year, although they came near
to tasting of. the bitter waters last Sat
urday against State colege's freshman
crew. The game this afternoon makes
the fourth played by Carolina and next
week the little Tar Heels travel up to
College Park and play with the Terra
pin Froshes.. . ' .

DR. CONNOR SPEAKS
TO SENIOR CLASS
Makes Plea for Trained Leader
ship in the State..
D R E A M ERS NECESSARY
"After All the Idealist Rules the
, World," He Declares.
"If there is one thing that the state
needs today it is trained leadership,"
stated Dr. R. D. W. Connor to the sen
ior class Thursday night at the second
smoker of the class this year.
Dr. Connor made a plea for students
to enter the field of public service and
give the state the benefit of their ac
quired training. "The state is training
you men and women to take up the bur
dens of leadership," said the professor.
.."There are two types of leaders. First
there are the dreamers of the world.
Every big thing we do in the world is
the result of a dream. The second type
of leader is the man who makes reality
of the dreamer's ideas. He is the man
who supplements the work of the dream
er with action,'?
By way of illustration, Dr. Connor
pictured the educational situation in
North Carolina a quarter century ago.
Some very interesting and informative
figures were cited to make more vivid
the degree of progress the state has
made in educational lines. In 1900 the
state of North Carolina spent $950,000
for its public schools, while in 1922 $22,
000,000 were spent In 1900 approxi
mately 400,000 children were enrolled In
the public schools of the state, .while
far 1922 there were 750,000 children in
school, an increase of almost double. In
1900 the average public school was ope
rated for 73 days out of the year, while
in 1922 the average was 141 days. In
1900 there were 30 high schools in the
state, while In 1922 there were 475 high
schools within the state borders. In 1900
the state appropriated for all its insti
tutions of higher -learning only $75,000,
while a quarter century later the state
appropriated in a single year $1,365,000.
The speaker called attention to the
progress the state has made along all
lines, the evidence, he suggested, that
the increased expenditures for schools,
roads, etc, has paid the taxpayers.
"The dream of Charles B. Aycock put
into operation by thousands of men of
the second type of leaders, has brought
about the marvelous change in the state.
It's the idealist after all that runs the
world. So young men and women, dream
and do not let mockery and laughs dis
courage your ideals." -
Preceding the speech of Dr. Connor a
message was heard from Mr. John Um
stead, who in a few well chosen words
presented to the class the insurance fund
idea which was recently adopted by the
Central Alumni council.
Under the head of class business a dis
cussion was heard on the commencement
programs, and samples were passed
around for Inspection by the members.
F. S. Griffin, chairman of the execu
tive committee, announced the appoint
ment of the executive and finance com
mittees of the class.
The smoker, .which was held in the
Carolina cafeteria, was pronounced an
enjoyable affair, although only a rela
tively small number of the members of
the class were present. Dick Thorpe,
president, presided at the smoker.
Brings in a Nifty Sum
The sale of forget-me-nots held Inst
Saturday netted a total of $123 to the
children selling them for the benent oi
world war veterans that are not receiv

were nothing more than novelties on sale

DURHAM WINS IN
Chapel Hill-Durham Title Con
test Goes Into Extra Period.
THE SCORE IS 10 TO 7
Hackney and Satterfield Show Good
Football Work-rChapel Hill's
Stars Are White and Farrell.
A drop-kick by Hackney in an extra
period of play broke a seven all tie and
brought victory to the Blue Tornado of
Durham . high school over , Chapel Hill
high yesterday afternoon by the margin
of ten to seven.: - " : ;., ..-
The teams fought on even terms most
of the time with ' Durham having "a
slight edge. The Blue Tornado was a
little the heavier team, especially the
backfleld, and the weight told in the fi
nal period. Hackney and Satterfield
were the best ground gainers for the
Durham eleven while Farrell and White
were most effective for the losers. : I
Chapel Hill lost a good chance to
score in the first quarter- when they got
the ball on Durham's twenty-three yard
line when Satterfield got off a bad punt
that went outside there. . Three tries at
the line brought only five yards gain
and Sparrow . tried a drop kick. The
Durham forwards were through and
forced him to hurry his kick and it went
wild. ' ' ,
-The Hillians scored first in the sec
ond quarter when with the ball on their
own seven yard line and in the posses
sion of the Blue Tornado, Dawson re
covered a fumble by Hackney and sped
away for a touchdown. ' Durham was
offsides on the try for point and the
extra counter was . given to the Orange
county eleven. . '
Durham started a drive that with a
combined overhead attack carried them
deep in the enemy territory in the third
quarter and shortly after the start of
the final period carried the ball over.
Porter who was called out of the line
to plunge made the "last few yards.
It settled down to a grim fight for the
winning score in an extra period with
dark coming on. ' Durham gradually car
ried the .ball into Chapel Hill's territory
with gains by Sattenleid "featuring.'
Chapel Hill braced and held on the fif
teen yard line, but Hackney's sure toe
sent the ball spinning through the posts
for the winning points. - '
The remaining few i minutes were
played with Durham still having the
edge and Chapel Hill fighting desper
ately to hold off another touchdown.

Techmen Were Lost in Bewil

MERRITT EXPECTED TO REPEAT
Light Line Should Fall Easy Victim to
Fulback But the Wildcats Fre
quently Do the Unexpected.
Davidson, with a possible chance at
the state championship within their grasp
and with their record of no defeats on
Richardson field for 12 years, will give
the Fetzers Tar. Heels the fight of their
lives this afternoon before they concede
them a victory.
Coach Younger has developed a fight
ing team at Davidson, that despite the
fact that It is generally outweighed 15
or 20 pounds to the man, has been able
to do through the season with only one
defeat and that by the strong Furman
team, conquerors of the University of
South Carolina. Davidson and Wake
Forest are the only state teams that
have not been defeated by a North Caro
lina eleven and as Davidson does not
play the Deacon team, they will in all
probability tie for the state champion
ship if the Wildcats can overcome Cap
tain Matthews and his crew. If the De
mons should meet defeat at the hands of
State college it would then give the
Wildcats possession of the state title.
The Davidson crew were enabled to tie
State college by the use of the forward
pass and appear to have a particularly
strong aerial offensive. It Is in prepara
tion for this that the Fetzers have been
drilling the Tar Heels during the past
week. V. M. I. and Its heralded air
attack was not allowed to complete but
one pass out of the eight attempted,
while three were intercepted. Caro
lina with this week's training along this
line should be able to successfully cope
with the offerings of the Younger eleven.
The Wildcat line will have its mettle
tested when Jack Merritt tries his rug
ged strength against it With the ad
vantage of 15 pounds in the lme ahead
and the "human battering ram" behind
to carry the ball, . Carolina should be
able to gain almost ot will through the
lighter Davidson team. That, however,
remains to be seen.
Carolina will enter the fray In fair
shape. The team came through the hard
V. M. I. struggle with no serious in
juries. Mclver, who was taken from the
game, has recovered and will In all prob
ability play this afternoon. Hogan and
Robinson, who for the first time played
an entire game, may again be given
the call. Their work was of varsity '
calibre and the line appeared to be
stronger than it was against South Caro
lina. Sparrow Is recovering, but it is
doubtful if he will play. Devin will
again probably start at quarterback.
