BAD CHECK EVIL

Gave Bad Checks Last Fall-
Number Greatly Reduced.
Much credit" is due to the Student
Council for the efficient way in which
it has handled the bad check situation
during the fall quarter. The Council,
with the co-operation of the office of
the Dean of Students, succeeded last
quarter in setting a remarkably low rec
ord for the number and amounts of bad
checks given by students of the Univer
The modifications made last spring and
during the early part of the fall in the
plan which the Council is now using
have proved themselves most gratify ihg.
In the report of the Dean of Students
for 1925 appear some very enlightening
statistics concerning these checks. The
figures are as follows:
"The number of students who wrote
bad checks during the fall quarter of
last year was 286 j this year reduced to
143. The number of bad checks given
by these men, while last year it was 635,
was this year reduced to 338. Similarly
the amount of money Involved was cut
justabout in half.' Only 19 men who
have given bad checks this fall had any
previous record of this sort last year."
In the light of these statistics the
whole situation is much better at pres
ent than it has been in years. More
than 80 per cent of the students have a
perfectly clean record in the matter of
writing worthless checks. The great im
provement over last year is plainly evi
dent and, since every worthless check
written by a student is Included in these
figures, irrespective of the cause for its
return, they show an encouraging atti

The 1926 Tar Heel hasketbalT team
begins the season under a tremendous
h'andicap, having the responsibility of
living up to the high reputation set by
its immediate predecessors. '
The Tar Heels will open the season
this week with an exhibition game Sat
urday night, January 9, with the Dur
ham Y. M. C. A. in Durham, and a
return engagement will be played here
the following Tuesday. The first inter
collegiate game will be with Wofford
Colege here Thursday, January 14.
Three Southern men from last yfcar'8
championship will form the nucleus for
this" season's quint which bids fair to
put up' another stiff race for the South
ern title. The trio are Captain Bill
Dodderer, center; Billy Devin, guard,
and Jack Cobb, forward and captain of
last year's team. A fourth letterman
is Bunn Hackney.
Impressive Reserve Strength
Added to these are several members
of the 1925 varsity squad who did not
make their letters; namely, Bob Sides,
forward; Lawrence Watt, center, and
"Red" Barber, guard. v Players ,. from
last year's freshmen who may make var
sity grade this season include Vanstory,
Perkins, Skinner and Evans, forwards;
Newcomb, center; and Ferrell, Morris,
DeLancey and Morehead, guards.
Ten of the basketball candidates were
members of the football squad last sea
son and therefore should report in prime
condition, lhey are Cobb, Devin, Hack
ney, Skinner, Sides and Ferrell, back
field men, and Dodderer, Morehead,
Newcomb and DeLancey, linemen.
Dodderer Captain Quint
Captain Dodderer hails from St. Pe

the following fall and so began his var

team that won the Southern Champion-

RECORD IS MADE BY
Retrospection of Last Year's Work Re-
veals Service That This Division
of the University Renders.
According to Director Chester D.
Shell, on October 31 the University Ex
tension closed the most successful year
in its history. Since the extension
classes for the coming year are organ
ized and in full swing and the influx of
applications for correspondence courses
is at high tide at that time, the date
of October 81 is chosen for the retro
spection of the past year's work.
Facts and figures released recently
by Director Snell reveal some very in
teresting features and works of the ex
tension division. Registration for the
past year numbers 1,482 students who
registered for a total number of 2,309
correspondence courses. Ninety-four
different courses were offered and 52 in
structors in the University corrected a
total of 3404 lesson assignments. As
to courses completed, en average of one
course was completed during the year
by each student registered, while many
more will complete their work early
this year. Many students compieiea
from two to four courses. With an av
erage of 62.4 per cent on completions

' A survey just completed of the record
of athletic teams representing the Uni
versity of North Carolina since the in
auguration of intercollegiate sports here
36 years ago reveals a percentage of
victories of which any institution in the
country might well be proud. During
these 36 years Tar Heel teams in the
four major sports football, baseball,
basketball and track have hung up a
winning percentage of .615, higher than
the average that won the major league
baseball pennants this year.
Tar Heel teams have carried the Uni

contests and have brought them out vic
torious 56-1 times, not to mention the .
numerous contests that wer etied.
Three Periods of Development
The Tar Heel schedules have not been
easy. Kather they have provided for
matches with some of the outstanding
teams in the country in all four of the
bi gsports. They have numbered among
their opponents, not only the leading
teams of.the South, but such northern
institutions as Yale, Harvard, Prince
ton, Cornell, Georgetown and Dartmouth.
The record against the bigger teams has
been most praiseworthy. Particularly in
baseball have Carolina athletes made a
good showing in their Invasions of the
The story of Carolina athletics is pro
perly divided into several eras. The
period from 1889 to 1900 is the era in
which the foundation was laid, and the
Tar Heels put out several famous teams
during that time. From 1900 till the S.
A. T. C. regime during the World War
was a period of development. During
that time basketball and track were
started, and football was started back
in the upward road. The improvement
in football had as its climax the victory
