Reviewer Finds Latest Issue
Marshall's Article Is Outstand
ing; Issue Shows Much Better
Editing and Better Material.
W. W. Anderson-
The last issue of the Carolina Mag
azine, the December number, was de
cidedly the best -effort solfar this year.
In general, the issue might have been
named "a study in disgust" for that
is the trend of the leading articles.
The feature article, "College, Col
legians, and the Scholar," by John
Marshall is decidedly the life of the
Magazine and perhaps the death of
those who are caught by the author's
pen. It is well-written and, though
purporting to tell little, tells that well.
"Intermezzo," by'. Joseph Mitchell
parallels the article by Marshall,
though it wavers in spots. In. the
beginning, the author leads one to be
lieve, that he is sneering at those who
are "disgusted" but he abandons this
frame of mind after the first page or
two and becomes whole-heartedly sym
pathetic with the dissatisfied few on
"Pineville Episode" by Judah Sho
han is the best of the Magazine's fic
tion. Carefully depicting the life of
the small town, this story, though a
bit long, might well be applied , to any.
of the "hick joints" we hear so much
about. It contains those life-like' ele
ments of, the "Old Home Town" and
smacks realistically of the party-line
"A Study in Pairs," by Henry
Brandis and "The Legend of San
TCathPTine Johnson are
mediocre, though "A Study in Pairs'
is decidedly better than the latter,
The story of Miss Johnson might well
be culled of its "ands." A sentence
may begin with "and" occasionally
but ten sentences of this kind out of
fif ty-eierht aoDear to be a little too
many, if the reviewer has counted
correctly, especially with four in one
The poetry, generally, is good
though none of it is outstanding. We
notice a pen-name. Perhaps women
believe the only way to fame and for
tune is to assume- a masculine cog

COURT TEAM HAD
Defeated Monograms and Took
Two Out of Three from Tu
lane; Third Game 38-8.
The Carolina Tar Heels in their
holiday trip, which was the furthest
south they have ever been, won three
out of four: games, defeating the
Charlotte Monogram club on the way
down, and winning two v out of three
games with Tulane. '
The. squad assembled here the day
after Christmas, and played the Char
lotte boys the following night, over
coming them 33-30. In this game
Red Price suffered a leg injury which
put him out of the other three con
tests, and will probably prevent his
being in the return engagement with
the Monogram club here Friday.
, The first game with Tulane; play
ed December 29, was the first meet
ing of the two teams since the Tar
Heels in their victorious march to
wards the championship ttwo years
ago in Atlanta, eliminated the
Greenies in the finals. The White
Phantoms apparently .had considera
ble trouble in keeping ahead of their
opponents, and ended the game with
a score of 23-21. The next game was
lost to Tulane by another close score,
19-20. The poor showing made in
these two games by the Tar Heels,
recognized as the most formidable
contenders for the Southern Confer
ence championship, caused much con
cern to Carolina supporters and more
delight to Tulane's adherents.
For the third game, Coach Ash
more changed the order of things and
started the game with a team having
Hackney and Satterf ield at forward,
Vanstory center, and Morris and
Dodderer at guard. This lineup
seemed the most effective one used
this season and the final game clos
ed with Carolina on top of a 38-8
score. . ,
Sports writers at New Orleans
classed.. Dodderer.. and, Morris as the
best pair of guards ever seen there.
In the last two games, Dodderer's
opponent failed to score a point. Van
story came across wonderfully in the
third game of the series, his first of
the season as center.

DR. CHASE FINDS
Carolina President Has Been In
vestigating' Education Con-'
ditions in Europe.
One striking difference between ed
ucation in: Europe and America is
that in this country the poor boy has
a far greater chance to obtain an edu
cation, says Dr. Harry W. Chase,
president of the University of North
Carolina, who is back in Chapel Hill
after a seven-month tour of Europe
oh leave of absence.
While he went abroad primarily to
secure a long-needed rest, which has
greatly benefitted him, Dr. Chase
found time to confer with a number
of leading educators in England,
France and Italy. He made a' first
hand study of European methods of
education, and the impression he
brings home is that America's sys
tem is best suited to Americans and
that the same rule applies to Europe.
Neither has much to learn from the
other, he says
"America's. system; of education, all
down the line, from the elementary
schools through the colleges, is far
more democratic than that found in
Europe," he declared. "This is but
natural since in Europe the social
strata are more clearly ' defined. A
person born in one class is more than
likely to remain in that class through
out life, while in this country a per
son of humble birth may rise to any
"In this country the poor boy has
a far greater chance. Europe's system-might
be called the selective pro
cess, for the idea of universal edu
cation has not taken hold as it has
in this country.- Over there the op
portunity to secure, an education is
denied many a boy because of his
station m life or lack of funds."
There are many commendable fea
tures about European education, and
Americans who get the opportunity to
study a year or more -abroad should
consider themselves fortunate, Dr.
Chase said. He added that a steadily
increasing number of Americans are
going, abroad for study.
PRICE OF MILK
Dairymen , Say Rise In Produc
tion Costs As Reason of 5 c
Increase Per Quart.
Chapel Hill's milk supply has been
increased since the students depar
ture for the Christmas holidays.
Dairymen serving the village have
announced that the price would be
raised from 15 to 20 cents a quart.
This increase went into effect on
. The reason given by the dairymen
for this sudden soar of price in milk
is that the cost of cow feed has risen
from $60 to $100 in the last year.
This, in connection with the delivery
production - and in general, the entire
work connected with dairying has be
come so arranged that they feel just
ified in demanding the additional
nickle per quart. .
This change in the price of milk
has brought much complaint' from
the housewives of Chapel Hill and
will probably receive the same con
demnation from the students.- Moth
ers of the village will feel the increase
sharply for milk has come to take a
large part in the food of children.
The. Chapel Hill Weekly says: "The
output of the Chapel Hill dairymen
early this month (December) was
652 gallons a day. Perhaps half of
this quantity is sold wholesale to
Swain hall, restaurants, markets, and
grocery stores. If 315 be taken as the
number of gallons a day sold at re
tail, men tne increase oi o cents a
quart amounts ".to $63 a day for the
village; which means that buyers of
bottled milk in Chapel Hill will pay
$22,995 more in 1928. than in 1927."
Milk is sold in Durham for 20
cents a quart but in the surrounding
country, (rf one or two places along
the highway from Durham to Greens
boro, the price of milk is cheaper.
