By Comparative Scores, Carolina Is

The Duke University Blue Devils will
come to the Hill tonight 'to meet the Tar
Heel tossers in one of the biggest basr
ketball games on the home schedule of
the Carolina team. Duke has shown that
they have a strong aggregation in the
early games of their season, and they

football than the popular indoor sport,
and a court that was no larger than a

Recommends That Three Year Course
Be Required for Bar.
Students entering the University Law
School with college training made a
much higher average in their studios
during the last year than those without
the preliminary training, according to
the annual report of Dean M. L. Ferson,
of the University Law School, who, of
fers this fact as excellent testimony as
to ttie value of college training in prepa
ration for the study of law.
Dean ' Person's report shows that 61
per cent of the college' graduates in the
Law School last year passed all their
courses, while only 26 per cent without
college training were successful in all
their studies. ' Further proof as to the
value of preliminary training is found
in the fact that 72 per cent of the col
lege graduates in the ' Law School last
year passed enough work to be eligible
to return for another year, while only
31 per cent without college training were
successful in tlds respect.
Dean Person's conclusions are re
garded as particularly timely and inter
esting in view of the fact that last year,
for the first time, all students entering
the Law School, except in certain spe
cial instances, were required to offer at
least two years of college training, this
being in compliance with the standards
set up by the American Bar Associa
tion" for Class "A" law schools, into
which class the University was recently
Dean Ferson reports a growing tend
ency of the candidates to present more
than the two years college work required.
Last fall, for instance, 43 per cent of
the entering class presented baccalau
reate degrees as compared with 16 per
cent the year before.
"The better preparation of students
who have entered lately, and our exclu
sion of students who did poor work last
year, has produced a marked improve
ment in the morale of our student body
and in the quality of the work they , are
doing," Dean Ferson says. "We have
at present a student body of able, indus
trious men, worthy of the facilities the
University provides for them."
Included in the Dean's recommenda
tions is one that North Carolina require
three years of legal training before a
candidate be permitted to apply for ad
mission to the bar. Such a course ''is
not only urged by the American Bar As
sociation and prescribed by the Associa
tion of American Law Schools, but 67
per cent of all the states now require the
three years, while 10 states require iour
years if the study be in a night school,
nd a number require more than tnree

jyANT SOUTHERN CONTEST
To Interview Glee Club Officers Con
cerning New York Trip.. .
WILL VISIT HERE
Is Manager of Intercollegiate
Mrs. Harriet Pickernelle, executive
secretary of the Intercollegiate Musical
Corporation, will arrive here this week
end on a visit.
'Mrs. Pickernelle, who is also the wife
of the president of the corporation, is
from New York City, where she man
ages the Harvard Glee Club and all large
intercollegiate musical tests in that city.
The purpose of her visit to Chapel Hill
at this time is to meet the University
Glee Club, hear it sing and interview
its officers concerning the trip to New
York in March. This visit is made con
venient by the fact that Mrs. Pickernelle
is to attend a conference of a group of
Southern Clubs now holding a meeting
at Furman University in South Carolina,
On her return from this . meeting, she
will stop by Chapel Hill for a consulta-
tion with Glee Club Authorities. -
The LTniversity choral organization
will be represented at the meeting in
Greenville by Paul John Weaver, direc
tor "and head of the music department,
Ludwig Lauerhass, president of the Club'
E. B. Smith and Ernest Young, busi
ness manager. They will be accompan
ied to -the convention by the business
manager of the Duke University Glee
Club. At this meeting in the Palmetto
State, problems confronting collegiate
musical organizations of the South will
be considered. The entry by Southern
glee clubs into the national music con
test managed by Mrs. Pickernelle will
be discussed. It is hoped ty local offi
cers that the outstanding clubs of each
state will co-operate in the formation of
a Southern association. Delegations
from . Virginia, West Virginia, North
and South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee,
and Alabama are expected at this con
ference. The North Carolina Associ
ation, recently organized, will participate
actively in the work of the meeting; it
is thought that a southern' .contest will
be promoted next year. ,
The work of Mrs. Pickernelle is re
sponsible for this type of co-operation
among rival "organizations. As a noted
authority on glee club work, she has
promoted the national contests and asso
ciations for several years. The national
association of which she is secretary was
organized ten years ago' in order to im
prove conditions in college glee club
circles. Since its origination and dur
ing its management by able officers, the
corporation has succeeded in greatly
bettering . relations among college or
ganizations. The national body has ex
tended its jurisdiction over clubs" of
every section of the country except the
West coast, where. an association is 'now
being formed. '
: Besides the national aspects of the
situation, there is the international side.
The- Intrcollegiate Musical Corporation
has now begun negotiations which will
doubtless assure an unusual contest be
tween American and European glee
clubs. By this plan, European companies
compete among themselves for honors.
Then the club which emerges champion
from this rivalry will make a trip to

TO GIVE CONCERT
Francis MacMillen Will'Appear
' Here Monday Night
WIDELY KNOWN ARTIST
Uses Valuable Violin Presented to Him
By Lady Palmer.
Francis MacMillen, considered by many
of the world's foremost critics America's
greatest violinist, will give a recital Mon
day evening in Memorial Hull at half
past eight o'clock. In the last twelve
years he has appeared as a soloist in all
the leading symphony orchestras in the
country, and has given recitals in all
leading cities, a well as at countless
smaller towns where his work at colleges,
conservatories of music and with musical
clubs has been an important feature in
the development of our musical life.
MacMillen, thc4 son of an editor and
publisher, was born in Marietta, Ohio.
His great talents a a boy were so mani
fest that he was sent to Europe, where
he became the pupil of many great masters.-
Among these were Joachin Thom
son, and finally, the most renowned violin
pedagogue of modern times, Leopold
Auer. ' . : .....
; At sixteen he won the Grand Prix at
the Bruseels Royal Conservatoire togeth
er with the Van Hal $5,000 cash prize.
His debut in London quickly followed
with remarkable success.
MacMillen's" superlative performances
in England earned him. the friendship of
the late Lady Palmer, a patron of the
arts, who presented him with a Stradi
varius violin which is believed to.be one
oi the two finest in existence. The other
ii possessed by the Spanish Crown, and
used only by Sarasate. This violin, which
MacMillen uses at all his concents, orig
inally cost 3,000 but is valued at $30,
000. It bears the inscription "Antonio
Stradivarius Cremona,' 1T21."
,As a lieutenant in the United States
Army during the war, MacMillen acquit
ted himself with distinction and received
a; citation from General Pershing for
"conspicuous and meritorius service."
Directly after the armistice, Lieut. Mac
Millen toured France and Italy at his
own' expense, playing 'for "the wounded
in the base hospitals of the Allies.
Upon his return to America, MacMillen
appeared at Carnegie Hall with the Na
tional Symphony Orchestra with Arthur
Bodanzky conducting, in the Goldmark
Concerto. One of the many triumphs of
his career followed. The late H. E. Kreh
biel in the N. Y. Tribune said of this
performance that it was "thoroughly fine
and profoundly artistic. The player's
noble tone, lofty serenity, and reposeful
conquest of the technical difficulties make
his playing of the work a distinctly no
table achievement." ' -
The outstanding characteristic of Mac
Millen's playing is the broad beauty of
his tone. The requisites for producing
such a tone are a great art and a great
violin, and MacMillen has them both. -
i For the benefit of those who intend to
avail themselves of this opportunity to
hear an internationally acclaimed artist,
the following criticisms from America's
most prominent musical center are given:
New York Herald (W. J. Henderson)
"Mr. MacMillen's playing has gained, in
roundness of tone as well as in smooth
ness, clarity of style and artistic mas-tt-ry.
His cantilena was of fiigh order

Cornerstone Plate Found
By Alumnus In Tennessee
, By William Neai. t
One of the most interesting parts of
the University Day exercises held on
October 12, 1916, was the presentation
to the University by A.' B. Andrews,
Jr., of "Raleigh, a member of the class
of 1893, and Grand Master of Masons
of North Carolina, of the plate from the
cornerstone of the Old East building.
This plate, it is thought, was taken from
the cornerstone between 1865 and 1875
and its whereabouts remained nnknown
until it was recovered late in September
by Thomas .B. Foust, of .the class of
1903. proprietor of the Chirksville Foun
dry and Machine Works, Clarksville,
Tennessee. An article in the Charlotte
Observer by Dr. A. R. Shaw, of the class
of 1881, a member of the faculty of the
Southwestern Presbyterian University
at Clarksville, in reference to the plate,
its manner of 'discovery, and singular
description caught the attention of
Grand Master Andrews. He recognized
this as the long-lost plate and got in
communication with Dr. Shaw s and
through him with Mr. Foust. Mr. foust
telegraphed President Graham of the
University, stating that the plate was
being sent to Mr, Andrews for presen
tation to the' University. The plate is
of bronze, one-eighth of an inch thick,
five and a quarter inches wide, and seven
and a half inches long.
Letter of Mr. T. B. Foust
i Mr. Foust in" a letter to President
Graham makes known the following
facts relating to its recovery:
i"Some days ago the foreman In my
foundry stopped me as I was passing
through and said, 'Here is a plate that
looks, like it might be valuable and I
think' I will keep it.' He was using it
to hold against his mold to assist In fin
ishing with "his moulder's trowel.
"As he handed it to me the name of
William Richurdson Davie caught my
cye? and after a little further examina
tion, for it was so dirty and tarnished
that it was almost illegible, saw that
it must be linked with the history of the
dear old University and at once carried
it to the laboratory of the Red River
Furnace Company where we cleaned it
sufficiently to make it entirely legible.
"The plate came into my possession
along with a lot of scrap brass which
was bought from one of the local junk
dealers and was intended for melting
into" various brass castings.' From what
source it came into possession of the
junk dealer I have been unable to learn,
as he advises me that he has no recol
lection of having noticed the same; and
it is passing strange that it should have

Most Important Alumni Gath

DEAN SHAW TO BE HERE
Alumni to Study' University At Close
Plans have been virtually completed
by the Central Alumni Office-for, the
first "all-inclusive" alumni conference to
be held here January 28, 29 and 30,
Thursday, Friday and Saturday of next
Daniel L. Grant, Executive Secretary
of the General Alumni Association, said
today lie expected this to be the "most
important alumni gathering of the year,"
All alumni are invited to attend, but
those primarily concerned are associa
tion and class officers, the Ahnnni Loyal
ty Fund Council, the Alumni Review
Board, the Greham Memorial Fund com
mittee and the faculty committee on
Alumni Relations. -
The program will be opened with a
dinner on Thursday night, January 28,'
at the Carolina Inn, witti President W.
P. Stacy of the General Alumni Asso
ciation presiding. Speakers will include
W. B. Shaw of the University of Mich
igan, "deun" of alumni secretaries; Pres
ident Chase, of the University, and Sec
retary Grant. Friday and Saturday will
be given over to group meetings.
Announcement of the conference ex
plains that "this meeting gathers into
itself two existing alumni agencies the
old general assembly of the alumni in
June which has been held with apparent
regularity since 1813, and the sessions
of the recently inaugurated Alumni
Secretaries' Bureau. The first it mod
ernizes by requiring the presence of all
class, local club and other alumni offi
cers and committees. This provides a
direct relationship between those deter
mining policies and those who are to
execute the policies. In the past this
his been absent. ' Past meeting could do
no more than express the sentiments of
those who assembled. This has been a
vital defect." Second, there if now ad
ded to the conference of the class officers
similar "conferences of the local associa
tion officers, the Loyalty Fund Council,
the Alumni Review Board, the Graham
Memorial Fund Committee, and the fac
ulty committee, on "Alumni Relations.
Together, these officers make up the
general assembly which is the controll
ing body in alumni affairs. '
"The most significant development in
this conference, however, is the oppor
tunity for those groups to stay In ses
sion over three days and to study the
University at close range. The power
to control alumni affairs without the
accurate knowledge of what should be
done as the basis for the determination
of policy as a danger and not a security.
The administration of the General Alum'
ni Association must be done in the full
knowledge and close understanding of
all University affairs. This requires
study, and planning."
TAR HEELS LOSE
TO WAKE FOREST
Deamon Deacon Tossers Win
by Lone Point.
SEASON'S FIRST DEFEAT
Odds Prove Too Great for Carolina
i For the first time in over four seasons
the Carolina basketball team hus tasted
defeat at the hands of a North Carolina
college teum. Playing desperately
against odds the' Tar Heels went down
to defeat before the Wake Forest Bap
tists on the Wake Forest court Wednes
day night by the count of 29-28. A
fighting last minute rally, with Sides
and Cobb getting in eight points, failed
to overcome the lend that the Deacons
piled up earlier in that. semester.
A howling mob of Wake Forest stu
dents and Ralcighites packed and jam
med every inch of the box-like Baptist
gymnasium, and hardly left "room for
the ten players on the two teams to
move around on the court. Low rafters, '
spectators' feet projecting into the court
on every side, and lux refereeing that
made the gume into an indoor football
game were too big a handicap, for the -Carolina
aggregation, and they were
never able to getstarted on one of
their : scoring attacks that Blue and
White teams have been noted for in
years gone by. '
Before the game was two minutes old, .
Joe Ellington, Wake Forest forward,
dropped in two field baskets to count
four points for the Deacons. These
markers were the first time the open
ing points of the game have been made
on the Hillians this season, and the
Carolinu defense' tightened then' while
"Sprodie" Cobb und Bunn Hackney tal
lied 10 points to give the Phantoms the
lend by the count of 10 to 4.
However, that lead was not for long. .
Ellington sauntered out into his horse
shoe orchard and plucked off a large and
luscious bunch of luck-pieces to drape '
around his neck, and then he proceeded
to drop three long shots through the
netting from all ranges and angles, one
of them being from the center of the
court while he looked in the opposite
direction. These long baskets along with
scores . by Woodard and Obcr netted "
Wake Forest 11 points to Carolina 2
during the last part of the first period
and put them in front ut the half by
15 to 12.
-While perspiration dripped from the
spectators who were jammed into a com
pact mass like the unfortunates in the
famous Black Hole of Culcutta, the two
teams took the floor to start the second .
half. Hisses greeted a foul called on
a Wuke Forest guard, and the foot
ball play was resumed with Wake For
est having the ballon Carolina's ten-foot
line. James and Ellington looped two
more baskets to give them a seven-point

Andy Bell answered the call less than
two weeks since, and Bunn Hackney

troublous seas Wednesday afternoon.
Hackney left the Hill about noon on
Wednesday with Bob Sides for com
