lina Victories. -
Continuing their triumphal inarch
toward their, second consecutive
Southern Conference wrestling cham
pionship, four of the V. P. I. grap-
plers emerged victorious over a quar
tet of Carolina matmen here Thurs
day night to win by a 16 to 9 count.
The Old Dominion veterans were
far too much for Coach Quinlah's one
letterman squad. However, the Tar
Heel wrestlers showed possibility of
great strength in their first inter
collegiate match "of 'the season. The
wearers of the Blue were leading 9
to 8 at the end of the 'fifth bout.
But Fussell, V. P. I. 175 pound star,
gained a time decision over "Swampy"
Twiford in a slow-necking affair; and
Big "Bull" Davis, Virginia unlimited
ace, scored a technical fall over "Bo"
Morehead after 9 minutes and 30 sec
onds of terrific struggling, to cinch
the affair. .
Vv Gene Thompson, lone letterman of
the team, won handily from Nard of
V P. If on time while Mogre and
Abbott were turning in time decisions
to make up Carolina's 9-point score.
The Abbott-Hall, 145 pound go, was
the best bout of the evening from
the spectator's point of view. These
two grapplers "mixed it" from the
start and were on the mat most of
the time. Two extra periods were
required to settle the irfatch, Abbott
succeeding in holding the visiting -op
ponent on the mat 2 minutes, 20
seconds of the second, to win easily
in this extra time.
Garrett Morehead looked like he
might fit well in the 145 division,
when he stacked up against Davis,

Pledges to Women's Fraternities
Hostesses Tonight; Law School
and Grail Next Week.
The dance to be given tonight at
the Carolina Inn by the pledges of
Chi Omega and Pi Beta Phi will mark
the beginning of the winter social
season at the University. This hop
will be followed next week-end by the
Law School dance and the Grail
dance. Although no date has yet been
set for the Junior Prom it is thought
that it will take place in the near
future, and all. these events will, be
climaxed by the Mid-winter German
Club dances, February the seven
teenth and eighteenth.
Law examinations are over today,
and students of the bar will celebrate
.the end of long jdays of study and
nervous strain by being hosts to their
guests at a ball at the Carolina Inn,
February the third. "The affair will
last from ten until one o'clock, and
Kay.Kyser and his orchestra will fur
nish the music.
This social event will' be followed
Saturday evening '-February the
fourth, by the first XJrail dance of the
winter quarter. The hop will be giv
en in Bynum Gymnasium, but no or
chestra has yet been engaged to play
for the occasion.
The date of the .Junior Prom has
not been fixed, and no details of the
dance have been worked out, but the
hop will very likely take place some
time between the social events of next
wPPk-end and the Mid-winter dances
of February the seventeenth and
Aio-fctontVi. The Junior class has de
cided that the Prom will be "formal
The Mid-winter German Club dan

FOR TWO GABIES
Tar Heel Five Takes on State
and Duke Next Week after
Without a scheduled game since the
Virginia contest until State is met in
Raleigh Wednesday night, the Tar
Heels have been working steadily in
the Tin Can smoothing out rough
spots in their playing and trying out
new, plays. Tha- grind of daily train
ing was broken last night when the
Night Hawks, an independent team
from Greensboro, was taken on in an
exhibition ? contest on the local court.
Billy Vanstory and "Red" Price,
prominent" players on the team this
season, are but' on account of illness.
Price was injured during . the holiday
trip and has not been in any game
since that time. The trainer of the
squad hopes to have him in Condition
for the tournament at Atlanta be-
ginning the latter part of February.
Vanstory was kept out of the Wake
Forest game on account of an attack
of asthma. While he got in the Vir
ginia game fojr a short time, it is
doubtful that ne will do any strenu
ous work within the next few days.
The remainder of the squad is in fine
condition, and ready for the two
games of the coming week, one with
N. C. State on Wednesday in Raleigh,
and the other with Duke in Durham
the following Saturday.
The game with State is always contested-
strongly by the Westt Raleigh
ites, and Duke is considered as hav
ing a team dangerously near that of
Carolina, and the meeting with these
two outfits is continually in the minds
of the Carolina coaches and players.

Bible," this topic being "What Must
I Do to Be Saved?" Seven more lec
tures remain yet to be discussed.
These will b'e taken up during the
remainder of the quarter.

, adership in the graduate field in
-he South," Dean Royster said. "But
lere are many other reasons," , he
dded. "That the University's rep-

raduate study is spreading may be
: the fact that we had 141 ap

School in recent years was indicated.
i The enrollment for the fall quarter
was ' 168 -compared with 137 for the
corresponding period last year and
90 five years ago. The most amaz
ing development this year was that
97 of the 168 are candidates for. doc
torates. Seventy-one hold the mas

Recalling the day when the Uni
versity had a faculty of six men, Dr.
Venable said that graduate , study
really began with the organization of
the Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society
and the publication of its Journal with.
funds furnished by the members.
"Since that day the reputation of the
University has come to rest on. its
higher work and its many publica

Dean McGehee was himself a maker
and a discriminating collector of books
and' a builder of the Law Library.
This generous giftwill greatly aid

material of the various states and to
securing certain' appellate reports
The Law Library has finally' com
pleted its collection of all the report
ed decisions of courts of last resort
of all the states, as well as England.

cently been added to the Law Library.
Washington and Lee
of Boxing Schedule
The announcement that the remain
ing boxing schedule of Washington
andLee university for 1928 will be
cancelled will be read with interest
on the campus, for the Carolina pugi
lists were supposed to meet the Lex
ington mittmen here on February 18.

not yet been received by local athletic
authorities, so that it is not known
whether or not another team will be
secured to fill the date left vacant

other teams in the South, however,
who might be interested in a bdut on
that date. Boxing as a sport is be
ing introduced Jthis season at South.1
Carolina and Clemson, neither of
which are on the Tar Heel schedule
as yet, it is understood.

Undefeated so far this season, with
smashing triumphs over Duke and
V. M. I., the Tar Heels are doped
to .continue their triumphal march to- '
night against the Gobblers." Facing
a team that counts Paddie, Southern
Conference middleweight champ, ; as
its ace, the Carolina leath'erpushers
expect several stiff fights. ,
The meet will mark the first setto
of the season for the Gobblers, and
their team strength is practically un
known. Last season in a meet here
they presented several nice fighters
in the lower weights, ' but this year
Carolina boasts a balanced team in
every class from the bantam to "Ox"
Shuf ord's own unlimited final.
Cheatam Coley, clever little ban- -tarn,
who has ' taken over the post
left vacant by Earn Carpenter last
winter, will carry Carolina colors in
the first varsity fight of the evening.
'Following Coley will come Rufus
White and Allen in the feather and
lightweight divisions. All these young
sters are fighting their first year on
the varsity, but they have turned in -a
perfect count of wins so far.
Captain Ed Butler, Conference
welterweight champion last year and
undefeated during his college career,
is rated one of the finest and clev
erest boxers in the southern colleges,
and he should turn in his usual vic
tory. Jimmie Miller, a fighting soph
omore, is slated to take on the big
Paddier V. P. I.'s title-holding leader.
Charlie Brown lost his fight to V.
M. I.'s light heavy last Saturday, but
he put up . a fine exhibition in , his
first fight in that weight. He should
do better tonight. "Ox" Shuford, last
year's captain and Southern Confer
ence champion in the unlimited
weight, is in his best form and will
put the finishing touches on the eve
Preceding this varsity battle, the
Tar Babies will take on the V. P. I.
yearlings. The Babies showed lots
of stuff last week-end to win by a
4 to 3 count. Incidentally they turned
in one clean knockout and two tech
nical knockouts to count in the scor
ing. That was . their first fight, and
they should do better tonight against
