IS NEW VERSION OF "FASHION"
The Original Play Written by Anna
; Cora Mowatt and Has Had Many
At 8:30 tonight in Memorial Hall the
curtain will rise on one of the most ea
gerly awaited theatrical productions of
the year.. "Fashion" Js a thoroughly
amusing comedy in three acts which has
met with high approbation at every per
formance. ,' The play itself is entertaining
enough to be a success with almost any
cast, but when the company includes
many of N. C. C. W's prettiest, "Fash
Ion" becomes almost irresistible. "
, A feature, of the performance will be
the specialty dance by Miss Helen Hall,
Mr. Hurley, and the entire company. A
large orchestra accompanies the actors,
and a total of twelve popular vocal selec
tions will be given. One of the scenes is
laid in an elaborate ball room, and the
polka will be danced by Miss Sehon, Mr.
i Hurley, and a full corps de ballet.
"Fashion" is presented here by the
Dramatic Club of N. C. C. W. under the
auspices of the Carolina Plyamakers. The
direction is in the able hands of Mr. W.
R. Taylor, president of the North Caro
lina Dramatic Association. The cast of
"Fashion" comprises fifteen people. Miss
Hall, who takes the part of "Mrs. Tif-
sf any, who imagnies herself fashionable,"
.and Miss Sehon, who appears as "Sera
phina Tiffany, a belle", will be remem
bered as having taken leading parts in
the interpretive dances presented here
Jast year at the Dramatic Institute.
Costumes In the play are by Van Horn
and Son, of Philadelphia. The scenes in
clude the drawing-room and conservatory
of Mrs. Tiffany's luxurious home. The
forms a lavish background for the danc
ing of the romantic polka.
"Fashion's"- subtitle is -"Life in New
York." It was written by Anna Cora
Mowatt and has met with sensational
success for years. The performance to
: night will be a new version of the older
"Fashion," and will present a comedy
difficult to improve upon.

Dr. Mangum Speaks
To Fresh About Sex
Dr. Mangum, of the Medical School,
spoke to the Freshman class in chapel
Thursday. Because of the length of his
talk the chapel period was extended half
The"-subject of Dr. Mangum's speech
was the sex instinct. In his talk he out
lined the sources of the instinct and gave
special attention to problems arising
from it as they confront the college man
especially stressing the consequences of
moral degeneracy both on the degener
ate and On future generations.
Dr. Mangum's speech was interspersed
with bits of humor which did not de
tract from its seriousness.
KOCH WILL READ
Playmaker Head to Give Dick
en's Masterpiece. '-f
HIS TWENTIETH READING
Gerrard Hall Will Be Decorated
The yearly revival of that combina
tion of happiness and good cheer known
as "the spirit Of Christmas" will begin
Sunday night, December 14, when Pro
fessor Koch will read Dickens' immortal
"Christmas Carol." The reading will
be held in Gerrard hall instead of Me
morial hall as previously announced, and
will begin at 8:30. The hall will be
decorated with evergreen and Christmas
carols will be sung from the balcony
This will be Mr. Koch's 20th annual
reading of the Carol, and it has become
such an institution that the story of its
inception is interesting. Back in 1905,
Mr. Koch, then teaching in North Da
kota, read the Carol and remarked upon
its beauty. One of his hearers asked
that he give a public reading of the
Carol, and, Mr. , Koch consenting, it was
held informally around the fireside in
one of the dormitories. For 19 success
ive years since that time Mrr Koch -has
given readings of the Carol, always on
the last Sunday night before the Christ
Several times Mr. Koch gave the read
ing in prairie towns in North Dakota,
and once at Harvard university.
LOTUS PLANT HAS
GROWN SIX INCHES
Botany Department's "Nelumbo Nuci
fera" Has Increased Its Height
; to Twelve Inches.
A poet once expressed the following
as his highest aspiration:
"To eat the lotui of tht Nile,
And drink the poppiet of Cathay."
Again the "dear old lotus" comes to
the fore. Over in the Botany depart
ment the staff seems to have found its
development rather a bore; but the Tab
Heel reporter still finds that there is
news of note about the "Nelumbo Nuci-
fera found by Ichito Ogha." The little
soriit is now 12 inches long, having dou
bled its length in the last three weeks,
which shows that its strength must be
failing, for it grew the first six inches In
a little less than two weeks.
The Ta Heel's dream of seeing the
specimen growing to the top of the
"dear old well" will have to be aban
doned, or at least modified. The result
of the computation was that it would
reach the top of the well by November
22, 1925. If the ratio just established
continues the lotus sprig Will stop its
growth by April J, 1925.
But it has at least accomplished one
triumph: on the topmost part of the
lonirest of the three sprigs there is un-
misakably a leaf, about an Inch long.
By the time the students return after
the' vacation. It is hoped that the hard
working, much-talked-of little sprig will
have acquired another. . .
For Prof. Koch
The following paragraph f rom the
Ralehrh -Newi and Obterver wlll. no
doubt prove of Interest on the campus:
"Frederick H. Koch, professor of Eng
lish at the University of North Caro
lina and director and organizer of the
Carolina Plavmakers, was elected presi
dent of the State Literary and Histori
cal Association which closed its twenty-
fourth annual session here yesterday with
the election of officers and the founding
of a State Fine Arts Association."
According to Professor Koch, this
hohor comes to him as an evidence of the
iwnirnitlon which the work of the Play-
makers is receiving throughout the State.

pledging of W. W. Jarrett, of Charlotte.

McDonald, Former Star
COBB CAPTAINS THE TEAM
Squad Has Been Cut Down to Twenty
Men Dodderer and Devin Back
From 1923 Team.
With the passing of Thanksgiving the
major athletic scene has shifted from the
gridiron to the basketball court, . the
hardwood floor has replaced the turf,
and gym costume the heavily padded
moleskins. . ' ' ; .
Down in the "Tin Can" the squad
has been working out under the direc
tion of Coach "Monk" McDonald " for
every afternoon since the holidays, and
the team is now beginning to round into
shape. The squad is now down to about
20 men, most of whom have had some
varsity or freshman experience. Three
men of the "Wonder Team" of last year
are back and form a nucleus around
which Coach McDonald will probably
build his team. These men are Captain
"Spratt" Cobb, all-southern forward j Bill
Dodderer,. center, and Billy.. Devin, guardv
Sam McDonald,, brother to "Monk'?
and a letter man of two years ago, who
was ineligible last year,' is out for the
teem and appears to have a good chance
of becoming Cobb's running mate at
forward. He is getting plenty of op
position from other candidates, however,
and will have to fight to get the place.
Johnny Purser appears to be the fore
most candidate for the other guard po
sition. He has been on the squad for
years and is a consistent player. ;.:'
Other men who are out and are fur
nishing strong opposition for places are
Jimmy Pool, Ikie Calhoun, "Red" Bar
bour, Bunn Hackney, George Carmichael,
Lawrence Watt, Donald Koonce and Bil
ly Harvcll. ' '
Other Southern conference teams are
looking forward to basketball, some with
championship aspirations. Down at "Ole
Miss" the team is in fine shape and Is
confidently looking forward to a suc
cessful season, according to their student
paper. (Mercer, one of-Carolina'sup
ponents last year, and who will prob
ably be on the schedule again this season,
is not so jubilant, for four of her "var
sity men are out because of graduation,

Joint Session of Student Lead
ers and Faculty Committee.
5VANT CLASS COMPETITION
Group Expressed Itself in Favor of
. Having Classes Complete.
Several matters of general campus im
portance were discussed in the regular
joint session of the central administrative
council and student leaders and the fac
ulty committee on student activities held
last Wednesday afternoon. There was a
general round of discussion in which both
faculty members and students took part.
The subject of Inter-class athletics was
discussesd and it was evident thut'fliere
was a prevailing opinion that class ath
letics should, If possible, be again taken
up and made a part of the intra-niural
program. A plan, outlined by Coach
Bob Fetzer and presented by John Pur
ser, director of intra-mural work, was
suggested whereby class competition
could be had without actual class games.
It pointed out the fact that the class as
a workable unit in the Intra-mural plan
was not as good as the dormitory or the
fraternity. The plan proposes that
points should be given to the classes for
participation by its members in any
form of campus or collegiate activity.
For example, if the junior class had a
man on the football squad, that class
would get a designated number of points.
After, considerable discussion the pro
posal was allowed to be carried over. ;
The proposal for the creation of a
University button corresopnding in size
to the fraternity pledge button and which
would be worn by all upperclassmcn met
with approval by the majority- of those
present. It was decided to have designs
presented by companies and to take the
proposal up later. "' j
A very interesting discussion was had
on the subject of class dormitories. Pres
ident Chase was very much interested
in this matter and was very desirous
of securing student opinion. It was
brought out that last spring the alumni
proposed that some such plan be adopt
ed whereby the classes would be bound
together more closely as units. It was
agreed to present the matter to the stu
dents for their consideration and sugges
tions at a later date. ' '' ;
Other suggestions were offered by stu
dents and faculty aiming at a better
campus spirit. However, no other dis
cussion took place at this time. It was
decided to have another joint session of
the students leaders and the faculty com
mittee soon after the Christmas holidays.
, It will be remembered by those in
school last year that these meetings of
student leaders and the faculty commit
tee arose out of the movement for a
greater campus unification. The central
administrative council provided for by
the plan adopted last year Is composed
of the president of the student body, the
president of the senior class, and the
editors of the Carolina Magazine and the
Tab Heeu It is the duty of this group
to act much in the same way as the old
campus cabinet In considering and pro
posing measures which it thinks will ben
efit the campus. It had no jurisdiction,
merely being an advising group. The
larger group of student leaders has been
called in several times during the quar
ter for general conferences.
