Eight states are' represented in
students composing this year's edition
of the University of North Carolina
Glee Club an organization that in
recent years, under the tutelage of
Paul John Weaver, has gained wide
spread fame at home and abroad.-
One hundred and fifty students en
tered the try-outs for this year's
clubhand 72 were chosen. Forty-five
of them - are newcomers. Later the
number of successful candidates will

the material he has had this year. He
says it is the best yet. V -
Many of the candidates have had
experience in choirs and in glee clubs
in other colleges and universities.
Two men, for instance, are from the
University of Cincinnati, and Clem

1 To University Students:
On Friday, the twelfth of
October, the University will cele
brate its birthday. It is the
135th anniversary of the lay
ing of the cornerstone, of the
Old East . Building, the oldest
building on the University cam
pus, and the oldest state uni
versity building in America.
Interesting exercises have
been arranged at ten-thirty in
Memorial HalL Mr. Robert Lav
than, Editor of the Asheville
Citizen, and a speaker and wri
ter of ability, will deliver the
address. Classes will be sus
pended from ten-thirty until
I want to urge all University
students to be present on this
occasion. There are not many
times through the year when we
can all meet together for affairs
of general University signifi
cance. This is such a time. One
of the finest assets of the Uni
versity, is its tradition; its
. splendid history of a hundred
, and thirty-five years. It cer
tainly is fitting that we. should
meet together once a year in
memory of that history and that
tradition. For that reason, I
trust that every student on the
campus will attend.

, Continuing their excellent work of
the Wake Forest game, the Tar Heels
defeated the University of Maryland
26-19 Saturday at College Park. This
victory dispelled all doubt about the
first win being a flash in the pan
and "showed that Carolina had a
.strong finished team that was weak
in no department. The varied attack
used Saturday demonstrated clearly
that the Notre Dame system once per
fected can be used to great advantage.
The chief reason for the Tar,Heel
victory was their ability to hit the
line for that extra yard needed for
a first down. Time "and "again the
backs were called upon to take the ball
through the forward wall and almost
every time they responded with the
necessary gain. - Most of these plays
were, run over the back of Captain
Harry Schwartz who played a won
derful game and could usually be
counted upon to open a hole. Two of
the Heel touchdowns were pushed
Early in the game the Carolina
team opened with a strong attack
and within five minutes Jimmy Ward
made six yards and a touch-down on
a cutback play around his right end.
The extra point was given to Carolina
when Maryland linesmen were off
sides on the attempted kick. A series
of passes by Kessler into the waiting
arms of Roberts put" the ball in scor
ing position. Then Dodson received a
twenty-five yard heave from Kessler
and ran fifteen yards for a touch
down. A minute later McDonald,
Maryland right tackle, tied the score
with a "kick which was goodV Scoring
was at a standstill for the remainder
of the first quarter and most of the
second. However, hear the end of the
half the Tar Heels broke through the
Maryland def ense to score their se
cond touchdown ". and break the tie
which had existed since Dodson's
score for the Old Liners. The passing
attack for which the Tar Heels have
become noted was brought into play
when Albert Whisnant passed twenty
yards to Jimmy Ward. After re
ceiving the oval Jimmy continued for
ten yards before he was downed on
the three yard line. On the next play
Eddie Foard plunged over the back
of Captain Schwartz for the needed
three yards. Whisnant failed in his.
try for the extra point and at the
quarter the score stood Carolina 13,
Maryland 7. Early in the second
period the Tar Heels attempted to
pass and the refree ruled that Mary
land should receive a twenty-five yard
penalty for interference. This again
put Carolina in a position to tally.
Magner, who had substituted for
Jimmy Ward threw a pass to Strud
Nash which was good for twenty-six
yards and put the ball on the Old
Liner's nine yard line. On the next
play Maryland was penalized five
yards for being off side. From the
four yard mark Magner plunged again
through, the center of the line for
Carolina's third touchdown. For the
second time on the try for extra point
the Maryland linesmen were off side
and the point was given to Carolina
