Opposing Captain Dodderer tonight
will be "Sis" Perry, Carolina star of
four years ago, who starred at forward
on the Tar Heel team that brought the
first southern title back to the "Hill

Katherine Riggs, accomplished harpist,
will give a concert in Memorial Hall,
This concert, which is sponsored by
the University Music Department, is
one of the series of Sunday musical pro
grams which are given here at monthly
intevals. This particular recital will
bring to Chapel Hill an artist of widely
proclaimed ability. Since her formal
debut as a harpist three years ago, Miss
Riggs has had a string of triumphs
which are indicative of a brilliant career
Her beauty and personal charm, with
her rare ability, have united to win fo
her an enviable reputation among the
best critics of the art. Says the Wash
hurt on Times: "Katherine Riggs, Wash
ington harpist, gave delightfully the
Fountain of llavel, her tone being fill
some and her techique suave and most
musical. Miss Riggs is a charming pic
ture at the harp, quite visualizing the
spirit of the Romance of Hasselman,
which she played with breadth of style."
This is tlie noted artist's fifth South
ern tour. Two years ago she gave a con
cert here which was highly appreciated
by many music-lovers who have been
disappointed by her inability to include
Chapel Hill in her more recent schedules.
George Deland, organist and instructor
of Cornell University's Department of
Music, further testifies to Miss Riggs
popularity with: "To me, it was as de
lightful harp playing as I have ever
had the pleasure of listening to." Many
other glowing tributes have been paid. to

A large number of men have entered
the field "of journalism from this Uni

country to the live weeklies in the state,
The career of these men have scat

Ralph. H. Graves, '97, is in New York as
syndicate editor for Doubleday, Page
and Company, the well known publish
ers, tie was lormeny city euitor oi tne
yeio York Evening Post and the New
York Times, and Sunday editor of the
Timet, and more "recently managing ed
itor of World' Work. . Mr. Graves got
his opportunity in the metropolitan field,
while taking graduate work at Columbia,
as the result of ingenuity in. covering a
Jersey fire. He chartered a motor boat
and beat all other reporters to the fire,
thus enabling the Times, to "scoop" the
other papers with a street edition.
There is also in New York Charles P.
Russell, 'H, who is now a free lance
writer. Mr. Russell got his start with
the Tar Heel, and went from the Char
lotte Observer to New York where he
was at one time city editor of the
Philadelphia Bulletin, and assistant Sun
day r editor of the Philadelphia Public
Ledger. He returned last fall from
England where he spent three years writ
ing for newspapers and magazines, and
is now back In New York doing free

Others who have achieved success In
the New York field include Victor L.

who before he died in action in the world
war was a brilliant editorial writer on

sider the Lrniversity's present ' status
through first-hand study and to make
recommendations hioking toward the in
stitution's future .development, accord-1
ing to a program announced today by
the.dentrul "alumni office.
The' meeting will occupy three days
and will be a general alumni conference
and alumni school combined. All ulumu!
are urged to attend,' but special invita
tions will be extended to the class and
local association officers,' to the board
of directors of the General Alumni As
sociation, to the board of the ulimmi
loyalty fund, to the editorial board of
the Alumni Review and to the Univer
sity trustees and faculty members.
, Period of Stock Taking
These groups are being' asked to as
semble in Chapel Hill to take part in ,
the most searching period of stock-taking
ever attempted by University ahimnl.
The main purpose of the conference
is, first, to get these groups thoroughly
acquainted with the University inside
and out and, second, to have them ar
rive; at a common basis of understand
ing in regard to the future program of
the University and relationship of alum
ni to that program.
! To Keep Alumni Informed
"The experiences of the past have
shon that too few alumni have kept
themselves intelligently informed about
the ; University,", Secretary Grant said
today. "Those who from time to time
have made It a point to inform them
selves have been amazed at how little,
relatively speaking, they did know about
their Alma Mater. Many did not know .
what attitude to take, for instance, when
the evolution controversy and the Duke
gift, were holding the limelight recently.
, ; ' A Laboratory Course

ao ine purpose or tins conference is
to bring these groups back to the Hill
and. have them learn the University
through personal conferences with fac
ulty members and students. It will be
in a way a laboratory course on the Uni
versity. The different departments will
hav on hand their exhibits and repre- '
sentntives and discussions will be made
as informal as practicable
"Such alumni conferences should be
held at regular intervals, even though
th eUniversity be in the best of health,
for ;they are predicated on the realiza
tion that alumni must exercise a con--tinuing
Influence' in order to assure the
University a well-rounded growth. There
may be needed, in addition, speciul meet
ings, to care for certain emergencies."
