6 Whoops M'Dear" Falls Short
Of Reviewer's Expectations;
First Performance Was Best
Anderson Says That Show Was
Excellent, But That It
Lacked Organization.
MUSIC EXCELLENT
Kahn and Erwin Do Best Work
In Show; Malone Performs
Well at Piano.
Dear Peeples:
IVe written you several times about
the Wigue and Masque's revue,
"Whoops M'Dear," but I did not see
the production Wednesday night.
Everybody said it was excellent that
nigbC and I'm really sorry I missed
it f ov the show Thursday was decid
edly not what I was expecting. The
main trouble was its slowness. It
dragged terribly. I've told you be
fore that the organization had a good
show and I still stick to it. They had
an excellent show but it had no or
ganization.
I am told that the stage staff did
wonderful work for tne Wednesday
night show but I can't say the same
for Thursday night not when there
was hammering behind the curtains
when one act was on. And something
slowed the show so much. The stage
staff must have been partly respon
sible for this but another thing was
the cast. Almost every person ap
peared to be always out of breath
and dog-tired. Very few showed any
inclination towards pepping up their
scenes and it had a disasterous af
fect. I wish you could have seen the
dress rehearsal. Almost every act
that night went over with a bang,
the entire cast worked with a will
and put gobs of pep into their lines
and actions. It's deplorable that they
did not do this Thursday night.
But the costumes were really good.
The y- .e "'Springtime" was especial
ly effective. ' The Wigue and Masque
should be complimented on their
dress, settings, and presentation of
this number. The the costumes m
"Buccaneer Bustle" were all that they
should have been. I liked them very
much. I told you that this number
would be the hit of the show but it
didn't take so very well Thursday
night, although I heard it was a riot
Wednesday.
im. j. A -in--t- TTJcttt"
ine costumes m uwwij
were excellent and by the way, this
act failed to get its share of applause
Thursday night. The clothes in "My
Cullud Mammy Told Me" were very
apropos and set the act off well. The
ilsiTifiTifr was e-ood in this act but
Tarasa Graham over-acted a bit too
much the nart of the child. The oth
er two children acted none whatso
ever. The mammies, however, took
their parts as well as possible.
But I suppose you want me to tel
you what I think of each act and how
the audience reacted to it so here
goes. If , I make a mistake, just at

Cover Is the Best ot Entire
Year; New Section Entitled
"Yells from Collegia" In
cludes Exchanges from the
College Comics.
by john mebane
The last issue of the Buccaneer for
the year "blossomed out" on the cam
pus rather nudely, and perhaps a bi!;
lewdly, too. But true art is the soul
of beauty or something like that, and
we accept the cover as an excellent
bit of work in fact, it is about the
best garment that the Buccaneer has
worn during the year. the "girl
in the tiger skin" is perfectly pro
portioned that is, as far as we know
about such thinsrs and the colors
blend harmoniously. '
"Not in Memory," the dedication
poem, may be a fair-minded treatment
of its subject, but such phrases as
bloated cows" do not appear par
ticularly poetical to us perhaps this
is some of the "futuristic poetry." The
editor violates the precedent set on
the frontispiece page by using up the
entire space instead of the lower right
hand corner. But we can see no ob
jection to this.
There are twenty-five cuts in this
number about ten of them are very
good, and the rest mediocre. Per
haps the best cut in the issue is that
entitled "The Hunter," drawn by Bill
Chadwick. The photograph . of the
editor in a reflective mood is an ex
cellent picture, but not a very good
likeness but perhaps worry during
the past two years has changed him.
There are eight poems included of
varying length and of varying de
grees of poverty of thought and
rhythm.
Being in somewhat of a mathemat
ical frame of mind when we under
took to review the publication, we tab-
ulated the "jokes" under five heads:
Sex, drink, love, campus humor, andfstriction is effective to restore the
"all others" (in which are included
miscellaneous items.) : As a result, we

The session will be presided over
by three members of the North Caro

Adams, Heriot Clarkson, and W. J
Brogden, and four prominent mem
bers of the North Carolina bar, A
L. Brooks of Greensboro, J. O. Carr
of Wilmington, John F. McRae of
Charlotte, and J. S. Manning of Ra

The briefs prepared by the student
lawyers are considered by Professor
Coates, Director of the Law School
Association, as the equal of any of
the regular briefs filed by the law
years of the state with the North
Carolina Supreme Court. The student
counsjel have worked painstakingly
on their cases, and will present them
in the best professional manner. These
selected to argue are among the high
est standing students in the Law
School.
The cases will be tried in the court
room which has been established by
the Law School Association in the
Law Building. It is modeled after a
regular courtroom, and furnished with
modern courtroom equipment by Mr.
C. L. Shuping of the Greensboro bar,
in recognition of the value of the work
and in appreciation of the services of
members of the bar.
The arguments this afternoon will
be followed by a banquet tonight, at
which the Law School Association will
present to the school, the law office
and courtroom, the first ever estab
lished in a law school in North Car
olina. The case for the first year court,

'Sand-lappers" Select Co-ed
As President; Breaks
Precedent.
Frances McAlister was elected pres
ident of the Palmetto Club for next
year at the final meeting of the year
held in Gerrard Hall Thursday night.
This is the first time in the history
of the "sand-lappers" club that a co
ed has been elected president. Other
officers elected for next year are John
Norwood of Greenville, S. C, vice
president J. C. Stabler of St. Mat
thews, S. C, secretary; and Ed Ha
mer of McColl, S. C, treasurer.
This last meeting was well attend
ed by students from South Carolina,
and after the election of officers other
matters of business were discussed.
Plans for next year were gone over,
and then South Carolina news was
discussed. Refreshments were served
during the meeting.
Judging from the election it is
thought by one of the officers of the
club that the co-eds will bring togeth
er more of the boys from the Pal
metto State and make the club a live
organization.
German Club Places
There are only a few vacancies left
in the German Club for this year, and
there are already more applications

cations received before Wednesday,

committee of the club, and those who
are passed will be considered mem

circumstances, and whether he has a
girl or not, will be allowed to join dur
ing the Finals. All men who are not
members for this year, and who are
in school now, will not be allowed to
attend the dances either as a guest or
as an alumnus unless they have made
applications and have paid the requir
ed dues. All checks and correspon
dence should be mailed to Baron
Holmes, P. O. Box. 906, before Wed

GERMAN VISITORS
LAUDCAROLM
Visitors Impressed By Botani
cal Beauty" and Methods
Of University.
Yesterday the University became a
part of the picture of American edu
cation that 31 German educators are
touring this country to acquire. The
delegation of prominent scholars and
teachers from Germany arrived in
Chapel Hill at 9 o'clock this morning
and spent until 2 o'clock inspecting the
plant and the methods of the Univer
sity. Dr. Harry W. Chase, president of
the University, and R. B. House, ex
ecutive secretary, met the party on
their arrival, and an entertainment
committee composed of members of
the faculty conducted the visitor
about the campus.
The party is being conducted on
their tour of America by Dr. Thomas
Alexander of Teachers College, Col
umbia University. The circuit made
through the United States will take
three months. Almost two months of
this time has already been spent.
Members of the group were intense
ly interested in the various phases of
the University's work and expressed
a great deal of admiration for the
particular interest that the Univer
sity takes in the welfare of its stu
dents. To them the self-help phase of
student life here was a wonderful rev
elation. They had heard and seen
nothing like it before. The Extension
Division was also a new phase, of
University life to them as was the
University Press, since neither of
these departments finds a place in
the German institutions of higher
learning.
Dr. Otto Schultze, the oldest mem
ber of the party, and the only -mem-
oer connected witn a uerman uni
versity, expressed considerable admir
ation for the work that is being car
ried on in the Graduate School here.
"I am" glad to have found the same
spirit of scientific investigation that
we are so proud of in Germany," he
said. "I am particularly impressed
with the University's relation to the
state as a whole. The extension work
that is done here seems to be devel
oped to a very high degree. We know
little of that kind of thing in Ger
many, instead our every effort is put
into research and investigation.
"It is particularly interesting to
me to find that many of the problems
that you face here ,are the same as
those we face in European Univer
sities," he added. Dr. Schultze is pro
fessor of pedagogy at the University
of Konigsberg.
Other members of the party ex
pressed themselves as having gained
a new significance of what university
education really stood for in America
because of their visit here, and still
others were lavish in nraisiner the
o
spacious beauty, and what they called
the "botanical beauty" here in Chapel
Hill.
Institutions visited on the tour be
sides the University of North Caro
lina have been Cornell, Columbia, Uni
versity of Michigan, and Chicago.
Di Senate Selects
Fox As President
New Officers Elected at Last Meet in 2:
Of Society.
The Dialectic Assembly held an elec
tion of officers for next quarter and
initiated two new members at the
last meeting of the year Tuesday eve
ning. The new members were: T.
C. Bowie, Jr., West Jefferson, N. C;
and M. B. Seawell, Sanf ord, N. C. The
officers who will serve next fall are:
H. J. Fox, president; C. C. Studdert,
president pro-tem; Garland McPher-
son, treasurer; Aubrey Parsley, as
sistant treasurer; Will Yarborough,
clerk; and Whisnant sergeant-at-arms.
A motion to move the meeting from
Tuesday to Saturday was defeated.
Because of the lack of time an in
teresting bill regarding student gov
ernment could not be discussed. But
Taylor Bledsoe, the writer of the bill,
expressed an opinion on faculty in
terference :"I understand that there
are those on the campus who are pro
posing that the faculty place a fee
on the students for lectures and musi
cal entertainments. Gentlemen, I'm
opposed to this. I am not opposed to
this fee, but I am opposed to the fac
ulty placing any fee upon the student
body."
