Mayor Jimmie Walker and Sen
ator Reed Extended Invita
tions to Speak Here.
The national politics campaign, in
stituted by the associate editor's edi
torial of last week,- is moving rapidly.
The 'first intent of the politicians
was to present many candidacies to
the campus and have the. student body
vote solely on the basis of individual
personalities. The virtue- of this
scheme was that personalities rather
than parties would vie for favor on
the campus. However, practical dif
ficulties rendered this plan unpopu
lar with the managers of the cam
paign hence a new procedure will be
At the instigation of the associate
editor, parties will be organized on
the campus. Charlie "Jonas well-known
for his Republican strategem, will
lead a host of Republicans against a
Democratic faction under Taylor Bled
soe, all-round ' politital sage. It is
rumored that Jonas will not lack skill
ed support, for 'Alvin ,-Kartus and
Charlie Price are confirmed Republi
cans. Bledsoe is said to have a galaxy
of rabid Democrats who will defend
the campus Jrom those who would
have it desert the traditional party. -
In addition to the efforts of local
orators who have consented to speak
in chapel, there probably will be
speeches by men of national signifi
cance. The Tab Heel has extended
invitations to Mayor Jimmie Walker
of New York City and to Senator
Reed, brilliant Missouri prospect.
Moreover, the chairman of the Repub
lican and Democratic state commit
tees have been requested " to send
speakers to uphold their respective
parties. Concentrated efforts are be
ing made to provide outside celebri
ties for each faction on the campus.
The Dialectic Senate and the Phil
anthropic Assembly have members
-who are naturally, interested in na
tional politics. In fact; the Dialectic
Senate has an invitation to Senator
Reed which antedates that of the Tar
Heel. The paper's invitation will re
inforce that of the senators. The
' two societies are expected to intensify
the discussion of prospective candi
In the near future "a call to colors
will be issued by the leaders of the
warring factions. Then the speeches,
placards, and finally the straw vote,
The program has attracted interest
in the state already, as evidenced by
accounts in the daily papers.

"Opportunities in North Carolina To

"Opportunities in North Carolina
Today" was the subject of a talk in
chapel yesterday by Major Wade H
Phillips, director of ..the state Depart
ment of Conservation and Develop
ment. The address was the eighth in
a series conducted by the bureau . of
Major Phillips said that it was not
necessary for Carolina men to go out
of the state to seek opportunities
There is just . as great a chance in
North Carolina which has been de
veloped from the inside by state men,
many of them from the ranks of grad
uates of the University.
North Carolina, Major Phillips
pointed out, is the fifth state in the
union in point of industrial impor
tance, v Immense strides, almost with-
out. parellel, havebeen made in com
merce and agriculture. Opportune
ties in tobacco, textile, and wood prod
ucts industries are numerous and
worth while. Water power, is not
being properly and fully utilized, and
much remains to be done with, the
vast deposits of minerals in the states
"Now is the time,"- said the Major,
"to begin to plan. This is & good
state seize your opportunities nere,
If they get short on Presidential ma
terial, we will be ready. We want
, more leaders, more material, and it
will come from you, the students."

'There will be a Valentine social at
the Presbyterian church social rooms
tonight from eight till ten-thirty
o'clock. All young people of the town
and campus have been invited by of

and other forms of amusement wil
be indulged in. Refreshments will be

BULL DOGS 5 TO 2
Tar Heeb Easily Out-elass
Georgia Fighters in Tin
History repeated itself in the , Tin
Can Saturday night when the" Uni
versity of : North Carolina battlers
trounced the Georgia Bulldogs in the
best matchof the season, by last
years' score of 5 to 2.
The only thing to mar" the card of
fights was Georgia's forfeit" of the
heavyweight affair to Shuford. Out
side of this every battle of the, eve
ning was a headline go. -From the
first gong every wearer of Tar Heel
colors exhibited . an ' asrsressivenes3
hat was both pleasing and profitable"
pleasing to the spectators and
profitable for the Tar Heels. Coach
Rowe's men had to force the fighting
in every bout. Not once didthe vis
itors;? come out and lead any. of the
terrific battling of the meet: Only
the Heel's willingness to assume the
burden of offense, kept the bouts
from being sluggish affairs. But oh,
how Blue and White' leatherpushers
did carry the fight to the, opposition!
Only two of the fights went against
the Carolinians. Jester of the Bull
Dogs got the decision from Cummings
in the featherweight , bout, while
Odell ' Sapp lost out to Hooks of the
Georgians. Both of these fights were
too close for comfort. The Cum-mings-Jester
round, which was award
ed to Jester, brought forth a round of
disapproval. Spectators and news
paper opinions stand firm that if the
fight should not have gone to the Tar
Heel, the only possible alternative
would have been a draw. 'At any rate,
the two battlers ..were as evenly
matched as any two could liave been.
They swapped blow for blow, and
bloclc for block in one of the feature
bouts of the evening. The Sapp-
Hooks go was a close one, too. The
big Bull Dog football tackle had a
slight edge on Odell in their fisti
cuff ial discourse, but it was a very
slight 'advantage. ; " " - - .

THE QUEEN HAS HER FACE
LIFTED, by AlvinM.Kahn
February 10 and 11
. (By Joseph Mitchell)
I was' frankly surprised by the un
usual quality of two of the three plays
included on this twentieth bill of ori
ginal Playmaker dramas. ' I don't
think I have ever dared hope to see
on the local stage as forceful and
agitating a ; play as Job's Kinsfolks
I am quite Certain that I never ex
pected to see a play as well inter
preted. ' " ' ' s ' .
The program began, with a Cali
fornia folk-play, Mountain Magic, by
Edith Daseking. This- piece is ob
viously tinged ; with a definite cine
matographic influence. - A Viennese
opera singer treks across the. con
tinent to marry a supposedly prosper
ous American loveri who had left her
in Europe to come to California to
pan the creeks , for enough gold to
build her a 'giided palace. ' Sufficient
complications are introduced to wob
ble three healthy acts. The singer
finds her lover in a board shack in
the mountains, sick, discouraged, and
with only enough gold saved to send
her back to ' Vienna. A mountain
girl, of the Rose Marie type, is rath
er beautifully in love with the pros
pector, but"she altruistically sidesteps
in favor of the singing lady. Instead
of returning to Europe the prima
donna" decides to stay and grapple
with the hardships of back-woods life,
whatever they may be. The . playbill
notes this: "This play is based on an
actual incident in the life of her (the
author's) grandmother." It seems
impossible for the lady playwrights
to grasp the comparatively simple fact
proving that it requires more than an
actual incident to render plausible or
justifiable, a far-fetched plot.
The acting is several grades above
mediocre. It was obvious that here
were at least three first-rate ama
teur actors struggling with a second
rate play. Shepperd Strudwick, Jr.,
played Bill, the prospector. His role
was emotionally difficult, and he man
aged it well. It appears that he has
developed from his earlier method of
straining and forcing to show' a certain-shadowy
emotional effect. He
was natural, if not confident he be
lieved in his part ; he is better this
way. Helen Dortch as a barefooted
mountain girl, secretly in love with
Bill, was impressive. She acted with
unusual assurance and her every move
was enormously suggestive. Enita
Nicks carried the difficult role of the
opera singer with evident ease. Her
carefully rehearsed foreign accent was
convincing enough, but her method of
twisting a pronunciation- or showing
an idiomatic quirk to wring a -laugh
from the audience struck me as being
rather cheap. Her pantomime was
important." She knows how to use
her hands and eyes. There was only
a hint of overacting. Howard Bailey
deserves credit for narrowing down
the distracting part of the inevitable
rustic preacher. In the midst of a
symphony you are kept in a reverie
by the violins. . "Then of a sudden there
breaks in the bleating noises of heavy,

SOLOS ARE BEST
PART OF CONCERT
Reviewer Says Real Use for
Memorial Hall Has Been
Found; Concert Passable.
By Katherine E. Grantham
A large group of students and
townspeople heard the University
Ban3, directed by T. Smith McCorkle
in their Sunday concert at 4 o'clock
in Memorial Hall. Solos by Charles
H. White, Jr., Fred L. Byerly, and
Carl H. Wessell, were agreeable fea
tures of the program.
, The band exhibited unusually good
ensemble work in the concert, second
in the monthly series arranged by the
University department of music. Their
program also demonstrated a real use
for Memorial Hall. It was proved to
be big enough to hold adequately the
volume' of ' music a band can produce.
The band, then, did not suffer the
handioap most bands must experience
in giving indoor" concerts. The audi
ence could sense, fine gradations in
rhythm, and some attempt at artistic
interpretation of music.
The program itself was not all that
a concert program might be. The two
Chenette numbers were enjoyable,
though the second, "Eastern World,
Fantasy,". could well have been cut
short by the composer. Other num
bers, while rendered with skill, were
not so pleasing. in themselves, as com
positions. There was considerable
lack of unity in the theme of several.
A good many people were heard to
express pleasure overthe final num

Y GROUPS MEET
Discussion Groups Continue
. Meetings in Dormitories
The second of the series of dormi
tory discussion groups is scheduled
for tomorrow evening at nine o'clock.'
The organization of these groups,
which are sponsored by the Y. .M. C.
A., took place last" Wednesday in each
dormitory on the campus.
The discussions for this quarter will
be devoted to a study of the topics
taken up by Sherwood Eddy . in his
recent lectures here. The problems
of race relations, international rela
tions, and industrial questions will be
covered during the winter quarter.
These groups -are being held as a
sequence to the fall discussions which
have been held for the past " several
years. Jimmie Williams, chairman of
the dormitory, discussion group com
mittee, is aided by assistants in each
of the dormitories who have helped in
the organizing of -the assemblies.
Last quarter a great percentage of
the campus attended the meetings;
the total attendance for the series was
over two thousand. The. committee
has endeavored to select queries which
will prove of immediate interest to
students in the University. The quesr
tions which will be discussed "tomor
row night are as follows:
1. If America is the "richest nation
of the world," why is there so much
2. Is industry responsible for the
poverty, sickness, and vice of its
Workers? Do you know of. any com
munity where these conditions exist?
3. What is the purpose of indus
try? Is it' to make money or to make
men Jroht or service? -
4. Should the method of industry
be open and merciless competition or
should it be cooperation between men?
5.' Should industry be controlled
by the small owning group or should
labor have a voice in determining its
own working conditions? '
6. . How can the principles of social
justice and Christian ethics be applied
to business? - ; - v -

With Final Score 32 to 23.
By defeating Duke in Durham Sat
urday night 32-23, Carolina made
sure of having a place in the state
title for this year, even if she loses
both the remaining games to be play
ed here the coming Saturday and Mon

their slate clean within the state, and
also the record of some years stand
ing of losing no games to Duke, the
The Duke outfit is rated very high
ly, and has lost .none but the two
games' with the White Phantoms.
However, in both games with Duke,
the superiority of the Heels was
easily apparent, indicating the inf err
iority of individualism to teamwork.
With Duke at home, on a court'
smaller than the one at the Hill, and
a very slick floor, the Heels were
unable to gam such' a lead as when
they played here, but they were
never headed by their hosts in' the
score, although the count was tied
twice, once at 4 all, and a little later
at 9-9. At the end of the half, the
Heels had a" six point lead, 17-11,.
which they enlarged to nine points
just before the conclusion of the con
The meet was well under Way be
fore either side tallied, and Purser
started things moving with a goal,
from the floor. Then followed an
other period of inability to hit the
basket just right on the part of
either teanu The Phantoms got the
ball under frequently, but missed
what were apparently easy shots. The
Duke boys were very seldom able to
get within easy striking distance of
their end of the floor, and depended
on hope shots chiefly, letting loose
attempts from the other side' of the
middle line, and several times missing
the backboard altogether. Satterfield
finally came through with another
double-counter to make the score 4-0.
Werber started the scoring for Duke
with a free shot. Soon after came
Councillor 'with a field goal and an
other foul made good by Werber tied
the score at four for 4oth. 'Satter
field again got busy and broke it up
with an easy goal. ' -
A few minutes later, with the
count standing 9-5 for the visitors,
Candler got in two goals from the
floor in succession to tie up again
with nine points for each team. The'
tie was broken by a shot by Satter
field, and the Heels remained in the
lead throughout the rest of the eve--nine.
Purser dropped in a goal soon
after, and Euf e Hackney landed two
in a line. Duke called for time. Af
ter playing was resumed, Jankoski
had his hopes fulfilled with one of
his long heaves, and the 'gun ended
th,e half soon ' after, with the score
17-11. ' ' ' ' "
At the beginning of the second
period,' Morris 'got a two pointer, fol
