The Di Senate, in its meeting Satur
day night, considered several up-to-the-rnlnule
matters. The attendance was
rather depleted according to its usual
standard, probably due to the basket
ball game, but the delinquent Senators
no doubt missed a few points that were
worth taking note of.
The victors In the Fresh-Soph prelim
inaries were announced. Those partici
pating for the Soph laurels were Sen
ators Gilrcath, Block, Parker, and Hud
gins. Senators Block and Hudgins were
selected in the try-outs Friday night.
On the same night the freshman affair
was scheduled. Senators McGalliard and
Brown were the only candidates and
were thus automatically given places.
The finals of these debates between the
two societies are set at. Friday night,
March 5, in the two halls.

DR. MADDRY DELIVERS
Says "God Calls Men From All Walks
and Circumstances of Life to
Carry Out His Plans."
One of the best of the series of Uni
versity sermons heard here during the
present scholastic year was delivered to
n capacity house by Rev. Chas. E. Mad
dry Sunday night In Gerrard Hall. Dr.
Maddry, Corresponding Secretary of the
Baptist State Convention, former Sec
retary of Orange County Schools, and
alumnus of the University, spoke in a
1'iiet conversational manner that com
pletely captivated his audience of old
friends, former teachers and admirers.
Dr. Maddry took as his text the pas
sage from Exodus III, 7-10, dealing with
the calling of Moses to deliver his peo

Carolina's fighting mat men downed
the powerful Duke aggregation, hither
to undefeated in North Carolina, in a
fiercely contested match held in the Tin
Can hist Friday night, and thereby an
nexed the state championship title for
the first time since the introduction of
wrestling in the University as an inter
collegiate sport. The meet was a fast
and furiously fought affair, with first
tuui iht-n the other in. the, lead, until the
final minutes when Coach Quinlan's
charges forged ahead and emerged the
big end of a 13 to 13 score.
Duke brought to the "hill" a team of
veterans that were in every way up to
the standard of the usual high calibre
representing the Methodist institution on
the mat, but this time they found the
Tar Heels in the pink condition and pre
pared to meet with a team that was
more than their equal. All of the
matches wore usually hard fought and
the outcome undecided until the very
last encounter when, with his team lead
ing by the bare margin of one point,
Warren threw Umberger of Duke, in
1 minute 50 seconds to cinch the vic
tory for Carolina.
The win over Duke, besides giving the
Tar Heel grapplers a clear-cut claim to
the state title, also brings their record
up to a total of five .wins out of six
meets. Carolina has been defeated on

Kike Kyser's Dancing Acts to
Be Given In Chapel Today
A Few of the Dancing acts of Kike
Kyser's "Black and White" will be per
formed in Chapel this morning. "This is
being done just to give the campus a
taste of what can be expected of the
This Hevue, in twenty-one scenes,
promises to be the largest show given
here in some time. It will be the first
time that fourteen girls will have been
used in a musical show here. The Revue
is to be Thursday and Friday nights at
8:30 in Memorial Hall. .
14 GIRLS ARE IN
BLACK AND WHITE
Precedent Will Be Set for
Revues Here Thursday.
HAS TWENTY ONE SCENES
Tar Heel Orchestra to Give Pep to
Two Night's Performances.
Black and White, which will be pre
sented in Memorial hall on Thursday and
Friday evenings at 8:30 o'clock, is de
cidedly different from any type of show
that has ever been given here before. It
is unique in that it uses fourteen girls in
its cast, an unprecedented achievement
for the Chapel Hill stage, and it will in
deed be a treat to see some real girls in
action for a change. The beauty of the
girls, the scenery and the costumes will
be a real treat to local theatre-goers.
People who have watched the rehear
sals unanimously acclaim that It will be
the best show that has been given here
in many a clay. They have all been
amazed at the unusual precision, pep,
beauty and snap of the show; and they
agree that it is incredible what an un
usual show Black and White will be.
The elaborate scenery used in this pro
ductiun will surpass in beauty the scen
ery of any production that has ever been
presented here. . Eleven changes of
scenery is certainly enough for any show,
and that is what Black and White car
ries. The scenery changes from a black
set to a silver set with a girl in the
moon, then to a "patch-work" drop, then
to a pink satin, and finally into a blue
cyclerama. The second act opens in the
most elaborate rose garden ever staged
here, then it changes to an Egyptian tem
ple then to a gingham scene; and it is
culminated with a dazzling and elaborate
court scene. The director feels that, with
this variety of scenery, the show is well
taken care of from the standpoint of
color, novelty and elaborateness.
The costumes vary from black and
white sport suits and black and white
Tuxedos to comedy suits, old fashioned
dresses-, minstrel finery and dazzling
court apparel. The costumes in Black
anil White are expected to surpass those
of any previous performance that has
been presented here.
The music is being very efficiently
taken care of by the Tar Heel Orches
tra, a ten-piece dance orchestra here on
the campus. This group of musicians has
taken over the entire musical end of the
performance, and they are very ade
quately handling the many snappy tunes
of Black and White. The show carries
many and varied types of songs that will
please all types of music lovers.
Now as to the acts themselves, an in
terested outsider who has reviewed a
dress rehearsal of the show states that
he has never seen a more varied group
of acts included in one show. In his
opinion, the people of Chapel Hill and
the students of the University do not
realize what an unusual performance will
be presented here on Thursday evening.
It is certain that one half the people still
think that a minstrel show is to be given.
Those people have emphatically a most
erroneous impression, for the show will
decidedly be a Tevue in twenty-one
scenes. Scenes which are full of girls,
songs, pep, nonsense and shap; scenes
which have beautiful costumes and daz
zling scenery; and a show which is
crammed full of jokes, good dancing and
peppy singing Black and White offers.
TMs morning in Chapel a few of the
acts will be performed, just to give the
students an idea of what the show, will
include. The chorus of girls, Charlcston-
ing team, quartette and dancing team
will work out for the approval of the
boys. Everybody is cordially invited to
this little entertainment in Chapel this

the seniors in the School of
Commerce and the College of
Liberal Arts in Gerrard Hall

es explaining the advantages of
their businesses as a field to
the college graduate. After the
speeches by both of the visitors,
they will mingle with the stu
dents and endeavor to reply to
any questions that may be asked
of them by their audience.
An attack of influenza which sent Billy
Devin, All-Southern guard on the Tar
Heel quint, to the infirmary Friday aft
ernoon kept him out of the Duke game
last Saturday night, and it will pre
vent him from making his farewell ap
pearance on the Tin Can court in a
Carolina uniform. The Davidson game
tonight would have marked the last home
game for Billy, but he will be forced to
watch from the sidelines while Cobb, his
teammate through prep school and col
lege, sings the "swan song" for both of
them. "Doc" Lawson, trainer for the
Tar Heel squad, announced that he ex
pects to. get Devin ui ..shape to. piny his

The "king" was resurrected Saturday
night at Durham, and after allowing the
State College Terrors to usurp the bas
ketball throne of the state, the Flying
Phantoms turned loose a whirlwind in
side Duke's 'Alumni Memorial Gym that
literally turned the Methodists every
way but. loose. It was a whirlwind that
picked up everything in its path, par
ticularly everything that resembled a
basketball, and tossed it through the
baskets at either end of the court For
forty minutes the storm raged and when
the calm came the scoreboards on the
balconies registered 44- points for Caro
lina to 21 for Duke.
Long before the gariie began the crowd
commenced streaming into the Gym, for
after the disastrous defeat suffered at
the hands of the Techmen Thursday night
there were many who had a fleeting idea
that the Blue Devils might emulate the
example set by the West Raleigh crew.
However, it was not a minute after the
rst whistle before any such fleeting ideas

The program to be given by the Uni
versity Glee Club at 8:30 this evening

many entirely new songs, the singing of
which will feature a concert whose
quality will be unquestionably1 high.
Among these new selections is the
song to be sung in the National Inter
collegiate Glee Club contest on March 6
in New York. This number will be sung
by every competing organization at the
select meet of prominent glee clubs. Com
posed by Ella Higginson, this song is a
continuous flow of exquisite music, a
stirring appeal to God to guide one's
life even as Venus, the beautiful even
ing star, casts its bright light upon a
turbulent sea. The scene suggested by
