The Zeta Epsiloh, local -fraternity
at the University of
North Carolina was granted a
charter by the Zeta Beta Tau
National fraternity, which was
in annual convention during
Christmas holidays. Norman
Block, a member of the local,
represented them in New York.
The National fraternity was
founded at the Hebrew Union
College of Cincinnati in .. 1898,
being the first Greek' letter Jew
ish fraternity. Since that time
32 chapters have been formed
in the United States and Cana
da. " ;:.
Zeta Epsilon was organized in
the spring of 1926. There were
eight members : Norman Block,
Henry Weil, Caesar Cone, Alvin
Kartus, Joe Berwanger, Mickey
Block and Bill Breman. The
pledges are David Avner, Louis
Solomon, and Henry Sternberr
ger. ; The installation will take
place in the spring.
The Tar Heel "White Phan
toms got off to an unusually
slow -start in the game against
the Durham Y at the Tin Can
Thursday night, but the five
basketeers finally got steamed
up and buried the invading Y
aggregation under a 37 to"" 16
score. The avalanche of bask
ets' did not settle very seriously
about the heads of the Durham
team until the second half had
started, the count at half time
being 15 to 10. with Carolina on
the long end.
At the opening of the game
the Southern ""Champions were
handicapped by the biting cold
and several of the players fum
bled passes that should have
meant points. The first ten
minutes of the fray was charac
terized by the erratic passing of
both teams, and a bit of wild
shooting. Durham jumped in
to the lead at the start when it
made a couple of "hope" shots
and several fouls, before the
White Phantoms could locate
the hoQP for a single marker.
Capt. Bunn . Hackney finally
sneaked thru the crowd of
players and sank a neat crip
shot for the University's first
score of the new year.

Previously, . if the permission

Material Ranges from the Pon

(By C. A. Hibbard)
To attempt serious discussion
of an even dozen of one's friends
with all their diversities of qual
ity in a single column would be
foolhardy; to attempt detailed
critical comment, then, on a bak
er's dozen of contributions which
cover the usual fields of belles
lettres, verse, fiction, sketches,
articles,' editorials, and book-reviews,
is sheer bravado. But
perhaps there is hope even in
this diversity since it at least
allows me the opportunity to say
that the editors have managed to
squeeze out of the writing fra
ternity, on' the campus and. off,
enough manuscripts to build an
other issue of the, Magazine, an
issue which exmoits an tne
forms '.popularly supposed to
make a "lit'ry" publication.
And, taken by and large, the
material does make a creditable

The long rumored dance which
the Junior class has been plan

its way into reality and the date
has been set for Friday night.
January 21, as announced before
the holidays. Plans are rapidly
being completed by the execu
tive committee and arrange
ments are being made by the va
rious committees appointed
which predict a highly success
ful class ball for the third year
men. There will be a meeting
of the class Monday night for
the Durrjose of electing dance
leaders. . ,
In giving the class Ball the
Juniors are offering an innova
tion in the University social
schedule. This is the first year
that the Junior class has given
a class function of this nature
and it has been expressly: plan
ned for the ; pleasure of both
dancers and those who do not
dance. There will be refresh
ments and special entertainment
features to interest the non-con-
formers. The dance will be in
formal and is expected to be one
of the most enjoyable of the
year. Needless to say, only
members of the Junior class will
The Juniors are looking for
ward eagerly to the social event
which in their estimation is to
be the most brilliant of the sea
son. The announcement of the
date of the dance before the hol
idays enabled them to invite
girls up for the dance at an early
date. The week-end of the
twenty-first, with a Grail dance
Saturday night and a basketball
game to add to the attractions,
should be one of the biggest of
the winter season making the oc
casion of the Junior dance ideal.

Outlining the purposes of7 the

rests the responsibility of tell

needs a press agent. For one
thing we ought to recognize our
great writers before they are
