.This year's ballot is evidently a
short ballot. - w.
Our idea of the season's best joke
is:, the movement to get the student
body to exercise its right to vote.
..After seeing some of the make ups
in the Di Minstrel-Revue we feel sure
that the affair will be a laugh provok
The whole thing hinges on the ques
tion oi mechanical administration or
individual and personal administration.
Of course that part of the administra
tive machinery dealing with registra'
tion may be rushed and necessarily
worried at the complexity of the va
rious individual cases that come to its
attention. Yet it is a breach of fair
dealing and just procedure to enforce
such rulings in eases which clearly do
not deserve such treatment.
By C. It. Joxas - : '
Exams have come and gone. In their
wake comes the news that several men,
counted upon for great things athletically
this spring, failed to make the grade and
have been declared ineligible. '
The words of caution from this column
evidently fell upon alien ground. ' (Not
even the' poem produced the desired re
sult!' But possibly not entirely so, be
cause several athletes did the Impossible
a few made the honor roll.
Some of the fellows can't get iover the
idea that they will be passed simply be
cause they're varsity men. ; Surely we
have had illustration enough of the fal
lacy of that supposition in the past sev
Before a man is allowed to represent
the University in any' intercollegiate con
test he must have a passing grade oft the
majority of his classroom work. That is
a good rule,
Another good rule would force every
man to be physically fit before receiving
a degree from the , University., Every
day we are coming closer to the realiza
tion that it is only by an all-round devel
opment that men can go out in the world
and stand the best chance of succeeding,
Exercise of the mind alone, and at
the expense of the body, will result in a
warped and one-sided development. With
the progress in sociology and psychology
we are coming to realise that fact more
This column is not alone in its; advo
cacy of a physical test or some physical
development and training as a prerequi
site for graduation from the University
of North Carolina. A number of the
leading institutions in the country al
ready have such a requirement.--

Carolina's victory over West Vir-1 were overlooked from the various sauads
ginia in debating Monday night is I it was a mistake. They were all urged
quite a feather in our cap. I he West I to attend.
- Virginia team - has had much experi
ence, having debated -on -the subject
-used ten times-on one trip.
t, A call for candidates for next year's
-, TAR HEEL repotorial board was an
swered by some fifty men. (The term
. , men is understood to include co-eds.)
We feel like asking one of the athletic
; . t coaches how. they cut their squads.
- Students - should go around behind
' Phillips Hall and see the unusual un-
dertaking that is being 'carried on
there. 'According to a head in the last
-issue of The TAR HEEL the original
old-well is now being dug up.- Surely
- , it would be worth one's while to see
- men dig up a well.
- The spring quarter is always filled
up with all sorts of lectures, elections,
shows, etc, so that it is easy for stud
ies to be left alone.- We believe that
. it would be a good idea if the various
-" profs-would take these- facts into con
?i sideration 'when) they go to make up
; assignments in their courses.
The letter in . the last issue of The
TAR HEEL signed C. W. H. brings to
- '-the attention of the campus one of the
most outlandish rulings that we have
heard of in administration circles.
The University has a ruling that a
, man registering late is fined five dol
r lars, and. placed on probation. We
.have no kick to register against this
, : particular ruling. It is a matter which
.- rests wholly within, the spheres of the
, administrative jurisdiction. But we do
. feel that, an emphatic kick should be
,. raised when this rule is so strictly en
. forced that a man sick in the Infirmary
is placed on probation and fined be
, cause he did not arise from his sick
, bed and go through with the registra
C. W. H. is, not the only man who
has been made the victim of strict ap
; plication of the University ruling. We
have talked to other men who were
r quarantined in the infirmary on the
day of registration and not allowed to
leave their confinement. And yet in
; spite of the fact that they had an ex
cuse from the University's infirmary
y they were forced to abide by the rul
- ing regarding late registration.
" We are of the opinion that some at
tention should be paid to the indi
vidual case rather than try to classify
all cases under one ruling. It seems
' that the personal touch is left entirely
out of consideration is such dealings.
And when the University and its ad-
ministration succumbs to the mechani
eal way of dealing with the mere stu
dent it is time to kick.
The purpose of the meeting was to
create a better understanding of the
athletic problem here at the University.
It was held primarily to impress the
fact upon the student body that every
man in school should 'be a participant in
some form of athletics.
It is regrettable that out of a student
body of some 2,000 the athletic burden
is borne by so few... Someone suggested
that, the reason behind it all is that we
are becoming too lazy and effeminate,
that the great majority of this genera
tion cannot stand the gaff f , That is a
bitter indictment. j
Recently a Dean of one of our schools
made the statement in public that some
consideration should possibly be given a
man who fails in his class work if he is
accomplishing something in athletics.- Cer
tainly he should be ranked far ahead of
the "drug-store cowboy."'
Recounting the deeds of a wonder team
in '92' will not win football games for us
next fall. Telling of "Big Bill" Folger's
famous 52-yard run for a touchdown and
victory over Virginia in 1916, for the
first time in eleven years, will not beat
her next Thanksgiving.
Heralding the achievements of "Monk"
and "Mule" of former days will not beat
Old Buck, Wake, or The Farmer this
spring. Past performances in the Atlan
ta tournament will not bring the flag
back here next year, .

But those former glories should act
as effective stimuli, as incentives, as a
challenge to the younger generation to
accomplish something more. What are
we going to do about it?
At Stanford university a flock of sheep
have been kept on the campus for the
last ten years.- Not only do they serve
as efficient lawn trimmers, but at each
semi-annual shearing they yield approxi
mately $350 worth of wool.
Sophomore women at Oregon Agricul
tural College have adopted an . unique
costume for class work and for general
wear about the university. It is a scarf
of organ brushed wool with three black
stripes as their class insignia.
All nominations for "Queen of
the Carolina Carnival" must be
entered by April 20th. Leave
nominations with Jack London
at the Y. M. C. A. office.
t The '7th annual' conference of Deans
and Advisers of Men will meet at the
University of : North Carolina on April
23, 24 and 25. .The invitation was given
to the conference at the University of
Michigan last spring, and was unani
mously , accepted, i . ..:;. : '
The conference, since it was organized
in 1918, has met principally in the Mid
dle West, where the office of the Dean of
Men is more common than in any other
section of ( the country.- Southern institutions-having
the-office are U. N. C.,
N. C. S-, Ga. Tech., U. Tenn. and U. Tex.
. There are some 30-odd members of
the conference, scattered, all ; the way
from the Pacific coast to 1 Penn State,
and from Minnesota to Texas. Robert
Rienow, Dean of Men at the University
of Iowa, is president, and E. E. Nichol
son, of the University of Minnesota, Is
secretary. " Most of the members of the
conference have already signified their
intention of being present .at this meet
ing this spring. The meetings are given
over to the discussion of the problems
the deans and advisers meet with in deal
ing with students and student life and
" The conference comes to Chapel Hill
at the time when the campus is at. its
best. They have been urgently invited
by Dean Cloyd, of State College, to come
to State College during their visit, and
will probably take, as part of their pro
gram, an automobile trip from Chapel
Hill to Raleigh. "
The Southern railway has worked out
the itinerary for the various members of
the conference. Many of them will come
on the' Carolina Special, which comes
from Cincinnati. , Many' members of the
conference who have never been south
of Cincinnati before will have this favor
able opportunity to get their first glimpse
of the South and North Carolina, and the
University. : J
