Cheerup! Easter holidays aint so fur
It is not long now before high school
debaters and high school athletes will
be flocking the campus for the annual
high "school debating contests and
track tennis meets conducted by the
University. This is a time when many
of the high school pupils get their first
impressions of the University and of
college. In consideration of this fact
it is important that we, as University
students, show them the bright side
of college life and the important or
ganization of a higher educational in'
stitution. '..
The mass of students who assemble
here are representing the State and
the high schools of the State. If the
University makes a good impression
upon them then perhaps they will be
influenced to come to school here. If
not that they will be given an idea of
the University that will be favorable
to carry back to their homes.
So the University student body is
asked to be as considerate and enter'
taining to the high school visitors and
their friends and coaches as is possi
ble to be. The assistance of many stu
dents will be needed in the entertain
ment of the visitors and this can best
be done through the county club or
ganizations. If the clubs will get in
touch with the secretary of the Exten
sion Division in Alumni building they
can be of very 'much service to the
committee in charge of arrangements
for the week.
But the biggest thing' is the general
attitude of the campus. No matter how
much some individuals may work to
make the week 'a success it will fail
in many respects if the campus does
not enter into the spirit of the week
and extend a hearty welcome to the
visitors. '-

' " On the' campus of Leland Stanford
University there is a flock of sheep that
not only keep the grass mowed but also
yield $700 in wool annually. Perhaps
Ramases is the beginning of a movement
to have a flock of sheep a la Leland
Stanford here.
The idea above is a good one for some
lazy self help student at this institution.
Probably some such student could get
a concession from Dr. Coker to keep a
flock of sheep here. The catalogue says
that $500 is needed to-carry a student
through school a year, so a flock of sheep
would give $200 clear profit.
Presenting the sheep lawn mower idea
reminds us of what a friend of ours did
several days ago. It happened that he
had received a letter' from some pub
lishing company offering to send him a
set of five lessons in writing the English
language that would absolutely make a
master of him all for $2.68. Seeing sev
eral glaring grammatical and punctua
tion errors in the letter our friend sat
down and, wrote to the publishers sug'
gesting that they also take the course.
i All the fraternity pledges that meas
ured up to the registrar's conditions will
be given the mystics of the several fra

a great time for the freshmen when they
are ushered into the lodge rooms and
made acquainted with the grip, the sig
nification of the colors, the symbols, the
secret code and all the other stuff that
go to make up fraternities. Then in
cuuiue oi weens tne iresnmen will go
home for the Easter holidays to strut
their newly acquired jewelry.V
It will be only a short time until the
honorary organizations will be initiating.
- I he spring term is always a busy one
for the town's ribbon venders. And, too,
the initiations or rather some of them
are public and are looked forward to by
the campus very much, for it is horse
play and foolish pranks that dcligluthe
average student and the campus in gen
eral. The Fleece has tt its tapping date
on May.6th-and It is expected tha the
Gilded Fuzz will announce its "rapping"
ere soon. There is undoubtedly some ex
cellent prospects on the campus for the
latter organization. We forget to men
tion the Booloo club.
Th annual Phi Beta Kappa election
and address will be held on Monday,
April 6, in Gerrard ball at 8:30. The
chief speaker of the evening will be
Dr. Archibald Henderson. The general
public is invited to attend the address
and the ceremony.
After the address the names of those
elected to membership this year will be
read and the initiation will follow immediately.
Those eligible for this organization are
the men who have a standing of 92
or better on their scholastic work during
their freshman, sophomore, and first two
quarters of their junior years; and have
passed off all their required work. One
failure on any course automatically re
moves a man from consideration for
The speaker, Dr. Henderson, is one of
the most prominent men in the state and
is famous both as a scholar and as a man
of letters. As a Phi Beta Kappa him
self, he is well fitted to speak on such
an occasion Dr. Henderson recently re
ceived an offer to leave the University
and take the presidency of the University
of Oklahoma. In the field of mathemat
ics Dr. Henderson stands out as one of
the most prominent in the United States.
It wits recently made his privilege to
have his name in the English Who's Who,
which lists only the most notable men
in the United States. As an author he
is equally well known and is one of the
authorities on Bernard Shaw, whom he
recently interviewed.
Meeting Held in Memory of Dr.
Do Men Devote Their Lives
At a meeting of the Graduate club
held Tuesday evening In memory of Pro
fessor Thornton Shirley Graves," the
idealism which leads men to devote their
lives to scholarship was presented by
Dr. Greenlaw. Following a sketch of
Dr. Graves' life by Mr. Hibbard, the
paper of Dr. Greenlaw" was an interpre
tation of the work of Shornton Shirley
Graves as a distinguished scholar in the
field of English' drama.
Dr. Greenlaw pointed out that people
sometimes confuse the scholarship of a
man1 with the work that he- is doing, the
apparently tedious collecting of curious
facts that have little practical value and
no general interest. Graduate students
themselves frequently do not understand
the real nature and purpose of scholar
ship. They attain merely a general fa
miliarity with their subject; they do
much labor that passes for discipline
and finally they may receive a graduate
degree that is needed in locating a job.
Into such research students go on faith,
regarding it as a sort of martyrdom.
But the true scholar has no such nar
row View. While he realizes that the
greater his scholarship the greater will
be his service to others, he looks upon
utility as a by-product and not the pri
mary function of scholarship. Research
is done by such a scholar at the prompt
ing of his own inner spirit. The intel
lectual passion which he has for truth
elevates the' monotonous collecting of
facts into a voyage of discovery that con
stantly stimulates the mind. ,
Only by research does a man achieve
that intellectual progress which is com
parable to the urge of a plant to bear
its natural fruit. The influences which
would check such progress are immoral.
And when a man has once stood on the
vantage ground Of truth long enough to
make it his- own whether his projected
work is all done or not he is able to
die satisfild, because he has become im
mortal aleady.
Will Meet West Virginia Team In Mor-
gantown Monday Three
v Men on Trip.
The Carolina debating team has gone
to Morgantown, West Virginia, to meet
a team of the West Virginia University
there on Monday night. The Carolina
team, composed of S. G. Chappel, C R.
Jonas and E. L. Justus, will debate the
Mountaineers on the negative side of the
query, Resolved That Congress should
be given power to override Supreme
court decisions that declare Congression
al acts unconstitutional.
This will be the third debate between
the two institutions. Carolina has come
out loser on the two former debates, but
the LTniversity debaters have undergone
an .extensive period of preparation hop
ing to secure revenge for former -defeats
The West Virginias have recently com
pleted an extended chain debating trip
that carried them through 20 states. Ten
schools were delfuted on this trip and
the Supreme court query was used in all
of them. It is expected Vhat the Tar
Heels will find their opponents well up
on the query.

Please allow me space in your Open
Forum column to say a few words about
the University ruling concerning illness
and probation.
Students who were so unfortunate as
to be in the infirmary on Monday, March
23, the first day of the. spring quarter,
have been put on probation for missing
classes on that day. In spite of the fact
that some students were ill and were not
able to -register before Monday, when
they recover and start to register they
t informed that an extra charge of
00 will be made for late registration
and that they will be on probation for
the remainder of the quarter. A writ
ten certificate from the University Phy
sician will not be accepted as an excuse
for late registration or for failing to at
tend classes on the first day of the quar
ter. V - ' s
Now it seems to me that "It is- unfair
to penalize a student for something that
he cannot help. ' No student would spend
a week or 10 days in the infirmary if he
could possibly avoid it. It is a very
unpleasant experience. Yet we have
among us here in this great institution
men who are so narrow-minded, so in
considerate, so unreasonable, and so un
generous as to deem sickness a sufficient
offense for probation. It seems hard for
an intelligent being to conceive of such
men being among us, but they are here.
It. is not the severity of the penalty that
am calling- to your attention, but the
principle that underlies it. ' The most of
us go to classes whether we are com
pelled to or not. The thing that I can
not understand is how men who are sup
posed to 6e of ordinary intelligence can
refuse to insert stipulations in their rules
to cover cases of illness. If there is any
freshman at the University of ' North
Carolina who would not exercise sounder
judgment in formulating rules than those
men who passed the above ruling, it is
my opinion that he made'the greatest
mistake of his life when he decided to
come to this institution rather than to
go to the one,at "Dix Hill" In Raleigh.
Such ruling as I have mentioned is a re
flection upon the University that ought
to be wiped out. .". .;-.

About this time of the year no one's
reputation is safe at the Ohio State uni
versity, for the Yellow Spyder, the scan
dal sheet published by the members of
SigqjA Delta Chi, the national honorary
journalistic fraternity, makes its appear
ance. It is needless to say that no one
is snared, not even the professors.
The faculty of Johns Hopkins In Bal
timore, are planning to eliminate the
undergraduate department and to make
the university simply a graduate school
and scientific research department.
