Tech Game. 1
HUGE PEP SHOW
Dr. Connor and Prof. Graham
Enthuse Assembled Students
Into Fighting Mood.
The pep show Friday night was a
"roaring success. It was on 'the eve
of , the now historical Tech game, and
the atmosphere was tense with ex
citement. Syncopated ' strains ' of
music from the University Band
livened the crowd as it entered Mem
orial Hall. ,
Inside there were two jazz or
chestras, alternately serving up music.
A friendly rivalry appeared to exist
between the two organizations.,-Each
tried to out-play, out-blow, and out
shake the other. , Feet shuffled,
shoulders rocked, and even the walls
of the hall seemed to sway.
Chandler Peps Up
Then Bill Chandler bounced and
slid upon the stage, shouting and
clapping his hands. The team had
arrived. The band boomed out "Hark
the Sound." The crowd cheered, rose
to its feet, ancj drowned out the music
with a deaf eninsr roar.
The roar gradually ceased. "Chuck
Collins! Come up here and tell us
something!" shouted the cheerleader.
The coach went. After quieting- the
applause he gave a short talk. The
theme of his talk was optimism but
not confidence. Georgia Tech's
Tornado was going to be calmed by
a scrappy team. A .
, Connor and Graham Speak ;
Other speeches and some odd en
tertainments held the interest of the
auaience. JJr. onnor gave an ap
peal for funds with which to buy uni
'forms for the band. Professor Gra
ham endorsed Dr. Connor's remarks
and gave a brief but forceful talk on
football. The crowd had a holiday
The last week-end was probably the
mtfet enjoyed one thai; has occurred
this year. ' The fact "that . Carolina
was to play Georgia Tech on the
home field was enough to guarantee
a week-end far but of the ordinary,
but when the . news came that two
dances were to be held in Durham on
successive nights, an enjoyable time
was more than assured. .
, To a, stranger, who would chance
to pass fraternity court, he would
have; at once thought that it was a
group of sorority houses with a
group of boys visiting, so great was
the number; of girl visitors at the
various houses. There were at least
twenty thousand people at the gaime
and a good percentage of these were
girls. Besides adding color to the
crowd at the game, they enlivened a
bit the drab lives of the residents of
the fraternities. Several ofthe fra
ternities, gave delightful house par
ties, and all of them had open houses
for visiting members and guests.
On Friday night a dance was held
in Durham at the Washington Duke
hotel. The crowd was so laree that
two ballrooms and two orchestras
were necessary to. accomodate them.
The music was especially eobd and
the dance was a great success. An
other one was held at the same hotel
on Saturday night. This dance had
to be necessarily cut short, but was
not lacking in any of the things which
go to make 'a good dance.

The Tar Heel's New Dress

little sheet issued irregularly
by tbe. atleiic s :: association to

ered by critics, .tqf be one of the
best in the south has been one
of constant growth:
The use of headlines began
as early as 1460, but they were
, never used ' in the modern sense
until the events of the Spanish

of modern journalism and its
thrill; seeking brought s into im

story tellers.. They reached
their screeching height .during
the World War, when The Chi
cago Tribune ran streamers
measuring about two and five
sixths inches in heighth.
This paper- is. interested in
presenting ; attractive modern
"make-up" to "aid its readers' in
the assimilation of its news,
and in its slightly changed ap
pearance is pleased to follow

For half a century the. Carolina
Magazine was the only student publi
cation on the campus. Aside from its
function as a literary organ it was
burdened with the general news of
the campus. In 1891, however, there
appeared the. Chapel HUlian a -wjeekly
newspaper that relieved the magazine
of its news. But due to opposition
by the faculty-Ocombined with bad
management the Chapel HUlian soon
succumbed. The magazine had for a
long 'time urged the establishment of
a student newspaper. , - ;
In February of 1893 the "Tar Heel"
made its first appearance. It was a
four column, four page weekly issued
by the Athletic Association. It was
printed on cheap paper and contained
no headlines. There were no adver
tisements in the first issue, but in the
second six ads appeared; one was on
the front page advertising De B. Whi
taker, engraving and fancy stationery.
The paper had much looseness in
management and very little regularity
V After a year of fair success a rival
publication appeared called The Blue
and White. It was a weekly news-i
imper ana announced itself to
'Friends of the University, lovers of
justice and right", and stated that
"The Tar Heel is controlled exclusively
by-fraternity men." . From this publi
cation the. impression- has gone
throughout the state that the frater
nity men are only students at the
University. It is the object of this
paper, to correct such an impression."
The Blue and White sought to revive
the -Literary societies: .At one time
it declared, "There . is only one -way
to revive college' spirit abolition of
fraternities forever." The Tar Heel
always 'was cordial and polite to the
Blue and White wjiile it was often
very harsh on the Tar Heel. Due to
financial reverse the -two naDera were
merged into one after the Blue and
White had run a yar and a half.
Throughout the earlv vears the 7W

to athletics. In 1896 . a bin. inV
edition appeared in celebration of a
baseball victory over Virginia. In
1898 there was another bhie inlr i

mat, as Dr. Woof ter sees" it, is
the state of affairs at present. The
questionnaire, if-answered . honestly
by all students, will give a key to ex
penditures. If your car is too ex:
pensive for you, or if your amuse
ments cost more than your eats, you
will , be able to find it out and re

expected to prove of benefit to everv-

JUDGE SPEAKS BEFORE

Judge Robert W. Winston.
of the Superior Court, addressed the
North Carolina Club last night in

on the subject of "The Quality of
JNorth Carolina Citizenship."
The central theme of the club re
search this year is "Country Life in

geous geographical location.
The North Carolina Club has in
vited students from each of the nine
ty-eight counties represented on the
campus to represent this county at
the meetings of the North: Carolina
Club. A large number were repre
s'ented at the meeting yesterday eve
ning. This membership, however,
will not be hmited td single county
representatives, and. both students
from other states and the faculty
have been urged to join.
