Off the Roads I;
Two . interesting stories remain as
an aftermath of the late Thanksgiv
ing holidays, two which point to the
unfailing and hopeful progress of the
University of North Carolina and its
Six boys started out on the road
from Durham to bum back to Chapel
Hill in1 the time-honored manner at
the end of the vacation period. .They
split up, according to the best cus
tom,, into parties of , two each- The
first party was soon picked up by two
motorists who carried them a mile
or so up the road, stopped, and held
them up. at the point of a gun, taking
all their removable possessions. The
kind-hearted tourists' then went back
and picked up the next pair of bum
mers, returned to the lonely spot on
the road, held them up, and turned
around and repeated the process with
the third unsuspecting pair. Thus
was the story given .us.
But all is not lost to the cause of
bumming in the Old North State.
The -second story, more incredible, is
also nevertheless true. '
A New York student at : the Uni
versity started foV. the big town Wed
nesday morning, having previously
arranged to wire his " room-mate if
and when lie arrived. Taking his
stand in Durham, he waited for his
ride. Soon a car stopped and he was
picked up. It turned out that , the
driver had an airplane in Oxford in
which he was about to go to New
York. He invited the bummer to go
with him, and the invitation was
promptly ' accepted. Less than six
hours later the student wired his
room-mate from Mineola Field, New
York; that he had arrived.
This is the first instance, to our
knowledge of aerial bumming.- Car
olina students are, as always, just
a little ahead of the times, keeping
step in the March of Progress. Bum
min in North Carolina is so wide
spread among college students that
rumbles of discontent : are ' beginning
to be heard from the inhabitants.
Rumors of a law against indiscrimin
ate soliciting of rides from motorists
are rife. And the recent hold-up is
a discouraging incident. s ,
But we are not down-hearted. We
have found a way the modern way.

DON JUAN AND THE CO-EDS
It Won't; V .
Be Long Now!
At. the beginning of the fall quar
ter we look fbrward with keen an
ticipation to long, leisurely autumn
al days in which to' enjoy the pleas
ures of "college life.". Exams are far
away and not to be dreaded indeed

so early in the year. Instead, there
are football games and dances, week
end trips and picture shows, luxuri
ous loafing and long-winded bull ses
sions. Fortune smiles upon us while
we bask in Indian summer delights.
And so passes the first quarter.
Rushing season ends, . Hallowe'en
comes and goes, midterm reports
make a mild flurry in the calm of
our existence, Thanksgiving - ap
proaches, turkey and cranberries have
their inning then . suddenly there
comes the paralyzing realization that
' final exams are jufet around ' the cor
ner. Playtime is over and cram
time begins. Loafing is ended but
unfortunately the inertia lingers on.
Now is the time for all good and
hopeful students to come to the aid
of their long-neglected courses. Not
that the courses are suffering par
ticularly, but. in this system of ours
even a D demands its modicum of
work. And,' once the habit of put
' ting off the necessary studying till
some indefinite tomorrow is over
come, an enormous amount of work
can be, must be, and is done in the
. To the casual observer it may
seem as if debating and public speak
ing at the University is commenc
ing to fall from the pedestal oil which
it has been tottering for the past
few years. To the more accurate nV,
server, however, it seems as if the
forensic art has been braced upon its
pedestal and as if it is tending to re
gain lost glory.
Credit isdue?i)r. George McKie,
executive secretary of the Debate
Council, for his plan of organizing
the Debating Squad which meets each
Thursday night in Murphey Hall for
a discussion of current topics. Dr
McKie has charge of the squad and
offers to those who attend regularly,
participate satisfactorily in the dis
cussions and prepare a term . paper
one-half course credit for the year.
Dr. McKie has engaged men of au
thority in the various fields of the
political, economic and social prob
lems to address the members of the
squad each week. In this manner
the squad becomes intimately ac
quainted with the questions which
they debate. .
Last year the University Debat
ing teams won a number of dual and
triangular meets with various South
ern colleges. The outlook for this
year seems to be good. That inter
est is being taken in debating was
shown by the large attendance at the
recent debate with h nic-u
To Whom It May Concern:
I was very much amused as we
as surprised that a "Don Juan"
shouldn't want the fair sex to attend
this University. The Open Forum
etters written by, co-eds are not only
desirable because ; they, present a
change in style, but also because they
possess an "improvement" in style.
Not only was I surprised that a
Don Juan" should be interested in
politics, but considering the views
that he advocated one should think
that he would have been a supporter
of Al Smith instead of Wfll Rogers.
Since the coming of the fairer sex
to this campus I have not been aware
of an increase in duels, norof police
men being beaten unconscious by stu
dents, but I have noticed that these
' Don Juans" have taken a little more
pride in their personal appearance
I will admit that there is a law
against leg shows within three miles
of here,-but I am quite sure that the
co-eds were not aware that they were
giving us such a treat. Anyhow, I
wasn't aware of it, but I will pay
closer attention next time. In ad
dition to the law concerning leg
shows I might suggest for the edifi
cation of Mr. Don Juan that he is
in the wrong institution. Thereare
several institutions for such people
maintained by the state. The most
popular is at Raleigh commonly
known as Dix Hill. Another is at
Morganton, and that there is no law
or proviso in the statutes , of North
Carolina that U. N. C. may be used
in their stead.;
. We don't want to run the skirts
away we want more of them. Give
the fellows who aren't Don Juans a
chance. " ' t '

IN DEFENSE OF THE CO-EDS
Editor of the Tar Heel:
After reading the article that ap
peared in a recent edition of the Tar
Heel concerning our co-eds, and sign
ed, by some one using the name of
Don Juan, I am rather constrained to
place more stress on the old adage,
think before you act" Certainlv
Don Juan, as he so romantically signs
himself, must have lost all of his old
yearning for the fairer sex or else he
should pick for himself another name
less suggestive of the opposite of his
ideas. I might suggest, if it please
him, that "Nero" would be a "Nom
de plume" more in harmony with , his
conviction. . . v -
Certainly Mr. Don Juan did not
stop to think of the full meaning that
his words conveyed. As students at
a co-educational institution, our es
teemed .feminine associates have as
much right to advance their ideas as
does any male student of this institu
tion. Any attempt to deprive them of
this privilege would indeed be a blow
to the fine tradition of this institution:
We have always prided ourselves on
being members of an institution where
democracy holds sway, and a step to
ward denying our co-eds the privilege
of writing in the open forum of the
Tar Heel would not only be contrary
to tne imest tradition of the Univer
sity, but it would be contrary to one
of the finest principles of American
liberty, "freedom of the press."
Then too, why should Dressure h
Drougnt to bear on all of our co-eds
because two or three of them have the
initiative to write articles concerning
our student government. Criticism is
good for anything, for it eives the
good and had points of things as they
register on the minds of the indivi
duals. If Mr. Don Juan's ideas m
tlie matter of student government
differs so greatly from those advanced
by the lady writers, all of the
would probably derive a great deal
of good from a wholesale discussion
among themselves on this topic. At
east be good enough. Mr. Don Jit,
to lay blame where blame "is due. an A
don't condemn an entire eroun bp-
cause of the action of several of 1ts
In conclusion let me say that in my
MORE ABOUT SUNDAY MAIL
To the Editor:
; It seems that two' freshmen wrote
an article apiece on Sunday mail and
naa tftem placed in this Open Forum.
Since these - same articles have
aroused some little comment. esDecial-
ly from a ; certain ' Mr. Willis Which
ard, I feel' that it's up to me to say
a few words. I, F. ; E. . Patterson,
author of one of the above mentioned
articles, . wish to make my . position
just a little clearer. .
So, here is how I stand on Sunday
moil Ajl I-.-, t . '
ucuh j. i must use the de
fensive as well as the offensive, 'I
see, ; Now. Willis, come out of the
fog! Lend - me your attention .and
see just exactly what my sentiments
are on this. Sunday mail question. ;
You raved quite a bit on lovesick
youths. Now, I don't remember
stating anything concerning how
lovesick or homesick I was. Do vou ?
In fact I'm not in such a condition
at the present. I did make a gen
eral statement about slightly home
sick and probably lovesick bovs.
And another thing, this .University
wouia not be a Utopia if Sundav mail
were delivered thrice daily. I did
not say that ; it Was our greatest
need; but one of our greatest needs
at; the present. We need quite a few
other things too. For instance the
completion of Graham Memorial, the
building of a new , gymnasium; run
ning hot water at, all times on the
third floor, the discontinuation oi the
practice of stealing Buccaneers and
1 ar Heels from our doors, better
food at Swain Hall, and, several oth
ers. Look 'em over Mr. Whichard.
! Your suggestion about renting a
box was pretty good. -But guess
what.' 'We hit upon that same idea
a week or so before we wrote at
And by the way, Willis, I'll bet
you a plugged quarter that you
wouldn't shed many tears if you re
ceived mail Sunday. How .'bout it?
No sir, I didn't write my little'
article with the idea that 3 very stu
dent would storm the Postof f fee and
get Sunday mail by force. I real
ized that many a Sunday would Dass
before - this noble system would be
inaugurated. Maybe my" fond hopes
of Sunday mail will never material
ize and then, maybe they will.
tsut Jbmory university, , down m
Georgia, has Sunday mail. How did
that happen? Well, it was the di
rect result of a campaign waged by
the college paper. And if Emory can
have Sunday mail, why can't U. N. C
have it also? It is possible!
Perhaps some day we may have
Sunday; mail on Sunday,
Thank you for your kind attention
I trust that I've made - myself some
what clearer on my views concerri-
lng Sunday mail. '
