Carolina Frosh Score in Fourth Quarter to Knot Count Nash and
Nelson Gain Most Ground for Carolina Freshmen, WTiile
Bruske and Murray Show Up Well for Visitors.
A concerted attack' in the last quarter turned what appeared
arid easy victory for the Duke Blue Imps into a 6-6 score yester
day afternoon as the Tar Baby eleven went on Emerson Field for
the first time under Carolina colors. The Duke Frosh scored
early in the game, but the Tar
Babies, led by Nelson and Nash,
staged a come-back in the final
period to knot the score and
save the yearlings from defeat.
Save at times in the' third and
fourth quarters, the Carolina year
lings displayed a . weak, offense and
a disastrous habit of fumbling the
ball. In the overhead game the Blue
Imps were far superior to' the Tar
Babies. The Staton and Bruske com
bination proved a thorn in the side of
the Carolina backs.
Nash and Nelson seemed 'to be the
best ground-gainers for the Tar Heels,
especially Nash who clipped off sev
eral twenty and twenty-five yard runs.
The line on the whole seemed to play
a nice brand of defensive ball but
was woefully weak on the offense. For
the visitors Bruske was the most out
standing player, both in the catching
1 passes and in defensive work. Mur
ray as a plunging fullback was very
The Methodists drew first blood by
scoring in the last few minutes of the
first half. A penalty gave them a first
down in the 'danger zone and a few
moments later Bruske snatched down
a long pass for the first score. Duke
missed the kick for, the point.
In the early, part of the third quar
ter the Tar Babies made a rather seriT
ous threat but lost the ball on downs.
Duke punted and Sher, who had re
placed Wyrick at quarter,' started the
drive by , running it back several
yards. Nash and Nelson crashed the
Blue Imp line" until Nash went over
for a goal. They failed in the try
for the extra point.
The Carolina men threatened again
when in the last quarter, with but

SCHOOL OF FINE
Basic Courses This Year as
Archaeology and Hellenic
Art Appear on Calendar.
Basic courses have, been instituted
at the University this fall for what
. eventually is expected to be a Sehool
of Fine Arts. -,
The courses are in archaeology and
Hellenic art and will be given -one
during each quarter . of. the winter
term by ,Dr! J. P. Harland -who has
been secured by the University for
this work. "'
in aiscussmg tne prospects ior a
School of Fine Arts, Dr. Harland
said that the first thing necessary
would be sufficient interest in the
state for such a department here. "I
have 19 students in my first course,"
he said, "and it had no preliminary
announcement. The foundation of all
art is ancient art, t and that is why
we are beginning with work in arch
aeology. "Other branches of the University
are teaching the history, economics
. and politics of people from first civi
lization to the present and it will be
the aim of these courses to teach the
art of these people as just another
factor in their life. So many peo
ple have the notion that "art" - ,is
something done by a queer individual
stuck . away in a studio somewhere.
We hope to create a different feeling
Three Years in Europe
Dr. Harland is just returned from a
three-year stay in Greece where he
directed the excavation of a site at
Nemea. At this . pre-historic settle
meat, houses dating back to 3000 B.C.
were unearthed, and certain pottery
that was found in a cave may have
been as ,old as 4000 B.C. This work
was done on a Guggengheim Fellow
ship. Dr. Harland, was teaching here
in the University at the time he was
awarded this fellowship.
While in Greece he worked with the
American School of Archaeology and,
though he spent, most of his time in
Greece, he also .studied materials in
Egypt, Asyria, and Babylonia, as well

Class Attendance To
Remain Optional for
Juniors and Seniors
Optional class' attendance for
juniors and seniors remains , in
force this year, declared Dean Ad
dison Hibbard of the College of
Liberal Arts, when interviewed
yesterday. : The student body has
acquitted itself so well in the ex
periment conducted last spring
"when the optional attendance
system was. inaugurated that it
has been decided to continue the
program this fall.
Should a junior or senior be
taking a sophomore course, how
ever, he will be required to catch
those classes, as he is only ex
cused from junior and senior
courses. Sophomores will not be
, excused from junior and senior
classes. , , '

for the more inexperienced men, will
begin next ; Tuesday afternoon from
four to six in the Tin Can. Coach
Creighton Rowe states that although

thing about the "manly art of self-
defense" be on hand Tuesday. ,
The 1 neriod between ' now and
Thanksgiving , will be taken up main

Dr. Durant, a lecturer of interna

ject "Is Progress a Delusion?". He
will express the opinion advanced hi
his book "The Story of Philosophy,"
that there may in reality have been
no actual progress made by mankind
in the past thousand or so years. He
will also present the arguments ad

"The. Story of Philosophy" created
something of a furore in cultural cir

year ago. It did much to establish
its.author's position as one of the lead

During the past few weeks another
philosophical work by Dr. Durant has
received favorable comment from re
viewers. It "has, however, been in cir
culation for too short a period of
time to f orcast what its reception will
be. "' . ; ',
Dr. Durant is now on a lecture tour,
of the eastern section of the country,
under the direction of Leigh-Emmerich
Lecture Bureaus, of New York
City. His cpming to the University
is looked upon by Professor Addison
Hibbard, chairman of the faculty com
mittee on lectures, as a stroke of good
fortune, as he usually confines his lec

probably spoken to more people than
any other lecturer in the country,
having delivered addresses to large
crowds in most of the larger cities.

Dr. Louis B. Warren Conducting
Services at Baptist Church
for Ten Days.
' "My God Is Like My, Mother " will
be the topic of the morning sermon
by Dr. Louis B. Warren of Atlanta
at the Chapel Hill Baptist church to
morrow. At the evening service, beginning-
at seven-thirty, the topic is,
"The Cure for Fear."
Dr. Warren, the blind preacher, is
attracting large numbers at the spec
ial services he is conducting at the
local Baptist church. During the com
ing week services will be held twice
daily, one at three o'clock in the af
ternoon and on? at seven-thirty iri the
evening. No service will be held Sat
urday night. -The series will contin
ue through Sunday, October 16th.
Of interest to the congregation is
the preacher's blindness. . He lost his
sight five years ago, but he was told
by specialists twenty years ago' that
he would ultimately be unable to see.
Consequently, he ' at once began to
study the blind man's tricks, and is
now able to do a great many. things
rarely thought possible for, the blind.
Dr. Warren's memory of Scripture
passages is most, remarkable. At ev
ery service, he quotes the entire chap
ter or section forming the basis of
his sermon. '
Now at Fullback
In the backfield shake-up this year,
Billy Ferrell, pictured above, has
been shifted from halfback to full
back. The "change seems to have
added strength to the Tar Heels, as
he is a good line-plunger andi his
punting has been above the average.
He saw service in the Tennessee game
last Saturday and is expected to star
at full in the game with Maryland
on Emerson Field today. .

On Campus Oaks to ;
To . protect students from falling
dead limbs, tree surgeons have been
trimming trees in the center of the
campus since the storm last Monday.
These surgeons cut off the decayed
limbs and then paint the butts with
coal tar paint. This protects and pro

removing the possibility of jdanger

CAROLINA TEAM CRIPPLED
Lipscomb and Whisnant Have
Been Out of Practice All the
Week, While "Bud" Shuler Is
The Tar Heels take on their
second Conference opponent of
the season this afternoon when
they battle the red-jerseyed
eleven from the University of
Maryland on Emerson Field at
Last Saturday the Old Liners open
ed their own Conference campaign
with an impressive win, and today
they invade the Carolina lair with
the pre-game odds in their favor.
The question bothering the entire
crew of Tar Heel backers is whether
the big team carrying North State
colors can overthrow these odds. It
has been done, and can be done again.
The history of the series with Mary
land, shows at least one contest when
a Carolina eleven overcame odds that
had them defeated three touchdows
before the game began. When the
final score was chalked up it read
North Carolina 16, Maryland 0.
That was in 1924. The Fetzer
brothers carried a crippled team north
to meet Curley Byrd's outfit. Six
first string backfield men were in
jured and did not make the trip,
among them being Emmett Under
wood,5 "Rabbit" Bonner, Jeff Ford
ham, "Ox" Shuford, Bunn Hackney
and Billy Devin. Carolina's hopes
fell below the bottom of the dope
bucket. Even with these men in the
line-up Maryland was doped to be
. However, the story of ,the game
showed that "Sprat" Cobb, Bob Sides,
Tom Young and Hugh Jenkin liter
ally plowed and swam their way to
victory. They played an inspired
game, and the Old Liners could not '
stop them. They would hot be denied.
That was two years ago. Can this
year's Tar Heels repeat? They, too,
