In his work there is an absence of the
habitual superfluity ! of meaningless
lines which seems to pervade the car

cover which is well done and has an
effective color scheme. Henry Ander

work, occasionally attempting ec

A CAPPELLA CHOIR
Next Rehearsal Last Chance Xo Make
Place With Singers.
The A Cappella choir which was
organized on last . Monday evening
will meet for its first rehearsal at
8 o'clock in the practice room of Per
son Hall on next Monday evening.
The rehearsal wiH'last for one hour
and anyone who is interested in work
of this kind is urged to be present.
There are 10 places left unfilled in
thev-choir and the several who have
indicated that they should like to try
out for places in this organization
are expected to be present at the next
rehearsal. After Monday evening it
will be hard for anyone to make a
place in the choir owing to the fact
that the learning of the Bach cho
rales and extended cantatas becomes
deeper-as the practices progress and
one must start f rom - the first in
order to successfully render these
The rehearsals are only an hour in
length and they are held each Mon
day evening at the appointed hour
and place. ; It is hoped that a large
number of students who are musical
ly inclined will be present at the first
rehearsal and continue on through
the series. Several concerts will be
given throughout the year. Prof es
sor Paul John WeavesJhead of the
University music department will di
rect the organization.
"If you like the crowd and can af
ford" it, join a. fraternity, but if you
don't like the crowd and can't afford
it, go ahead and persue your own
course as a man who can stand on
his own feet." was the advise of
Dean Frances Bradshaw to the Fresh
men in chapel on Thursday morningl
Anderson 1 usual mistake of a Freshman is
to take yie fraternities , too serious.
He thinks that his sociaT career is
made or marred by whether he makes
a fraternity or not, whereas social
station depends upon what is x inside
not on what is pinned on the out
side of a vest," was the statement
by. Mr. Bradshaw.
The men in the local chapter at
present is the most important factor
to consider, the alumni and other
chapters' are of no value when con
sidered whether one will enjoy fra
ternity life. ""'
In introducing, his" subject Mr.
Bradshaw said that he was giving not
his own thoughts or his own experi
ences, but the experiences of ten
years of fraternity, men, and he was
passing on . to the freshmen the ex
periences of others. , I

Two smart coaches will send two
smart teams against each other this
afternoon , on Kenan Field. - Coach
Andy Gustaf son at V. P. I. has de
veloped a team at the Blacksburg In
stitution that can give almost any
Southern Conference team trouble,
while Coach Collins has turned out
the best team Carolina has seen since
the days, of Grady Pritchard's famous
South Atlantic champions.
The crowd, . whatever may be its
size, will witness a good football
game. Both the Gobblers . and the
Heels lost' their intersectional clashes
Saturday, and both- are a bit sore
over losing them. The Collegians
have the satisfaction of knowing that
they ran a couple of touchdowns a
gainst the big Maroon eleven from
Colgate, while theHeels were unable
to counter once against the Crimson '
Of Harvard. However, whatever those
scores may mean to the spectator,
they mean little to the twenty-two
men who' will face each other across
the field this afternoon.
The Three Grenadiers, the shock
troops of the Blacksburg team, are
not likely to run together this af
ternoon for Monk Mattox hasn't fully
recovered from the rough handling he
received in the Colgate game and

Acting Dean J. G. Beard, of the
Schdol of Pharmacy, has just been
notified of his election as editor of
the 4th revision of :the Pharmaceuti
cal Syllabus and as chairman of the

: The Pharmaceutical Syllabus is is
sued jointly by the American Asso
ciation of Colleges of Pharmacy
the National Association of Boards
of Pharmacy, and the American
Pharmaceutical Association. - Each
of these j organizations elects seven
of its members to serve a five-year,
term on the Syllabus. Committee. The
twenty-one committeemen thus se
lected name one of their own mem
bers to', act both as chairman of the
committee and as editor of the Sylla

The first edition of the Syllabus ap
peared in 1906. Its purpose is' (a) to;
provide a descriptive outline' of a
minimum course of pharmaceutical
study that 'will be broad enough and
sufficiently well balanced as to be ac
ceptable to schools of pharmacy as a
basis for the instruction of their stu
dents, and at the same time will be
satisfactory to state boards of phar
macy as a basis for preparing exami
nations for 'candidates applying for

furnish colleges offering advanced de
grees in pharmacy an outline of basic
graduate courses that will be accep

colleges. " . -
The next edition of the Syllabus is
scheduled to appear in 1930. It will
be based on the recently adopted four
year course of study that all colleges
holding membership in the A. A. C.
