Due to agitation on. the. part of
some of the faculty and a consider
, able number of students interested
in publications on the campus, the
Activities Group has called this meet

the plausibility: of ' making the daily
Tar Heel and The Yackety Yack the
only student publications; of placing
editorial responsibility so that by
, some plan to be worked out the edi
tors of the two publications may have
ample freedom in the management
of their publications and yet at the
same time guarantee to the faculty

Greensboro Wednesday night.
Dr. Knight is ex-president of the
North Carolina State Educational As

Because of the inability of Ed Hud
gins, Jr., president of the student
body, to. attend the fourth annual
congress of the National Student
Federation of America at the Univer
sity of Missouri, December 12, 13, 14
and 15, Walter Spearman, editor of
The Tar Heel, has been appointed as
official delegate to the convention.
The National Student- Federation
of America was organized four years
ago to further world mindedness, and
to facilitate an early realization of
this plan of international debating,
mutual tours between Europe and the
United States, and yearly discussion
congresses have been indulged in
each year. .
The convention that Spearman will
attend is the one and only official na
tional gathering of student leaders in
the United States during the year.
The purpose of the congress is to pro
vide, an-opportunity for the most
prominent students in the country to
discuss together their common prob
lems, to decide on concerted action in
regard to the responsibilities of the
N. S. F. A. to the world federation
of students, and to further student
contact by meeting on a social as well
as a business basis.
The aims of the congress embody
the fundamental purpose of the N.
S. F. A. itself, which is to achieve a
spirit of cooperation among the stu
dents of the United States and giv
ing consideration to questions affect
ing student's- interest. ;
Two hundred and- fifty delegates
will gather at the University of Mis
souri to hear Henry Wordsworth
Dana, Dean Walter Williams, Nor
man Thomas, George Wickersham
and Henry Elmer Barnes, noted
speakers at the various meetings of
the congress. v " , .
On the calendar of the convention
this year are' such subjects as Fra
ternities, the Honor System, Student
Government, Athletics, Journalism
International Relations, and Milita
rism in Education.

: To File Notice
"The legal "world distinguishes'very
carelully between a mere presenta
tion of facts and proof," declared
Professor' Breckehbridge in a speech
to' the University Debate Class Thurs
day night in '201 Murphey. The speak-
er pointed out that the problem of the
debater is similar to that of the law
yer in that both are confronted by
the problem of choosing facts to pres
ent, but contended that the" lawyer
must not rely on hearsay. ; He was
of the opinion that debate questions
are more general than legal questions,
for they have a wider range of effect.
In concluding this phase of his ad
dress he stated that the legal answer
must be either positive or, negative
Professor Breckenbridge was of the
opinion that legal arguments and de
bates differ mainly in that a great
part of a debate is based on opinions;
whereas what one person told another
is valuable in working up a law case
only in so far as it indicates' a clue
to a real source of evidence The
speaker emphasized the fact that the
lawyer must rely only -upon those
things which are facts and must not
in any case rely on opinions, even
though they may be very convincing.
He maintained, however, that debaters
and lawyers have in common an in
tention to convince. Professor Breck
enbridge asserted, also, that both must
anticipate the attack of their op
ponents. ; . -
"In preparing a legal argument
one must go through a lot of facts
and choose those which deal specifi
cally with the case under considera
tion," declared Professor Brecken
bridge. He asserted, moreover, that
the.debater usually, formulates his .ar
gument on the basis of a central
theme and then procedes to back it
up by a mixture of facts and opinions
of prominent men.

Blue Devils Have
Crossed Heel Line
Once in Six Years
The University football squad will
be fighting for more than a state
championship when it meets the Duke
Blue Devils in Kenan Memorial Sta
dium today. The Tar Heels also de
fend a goal line that the , Blue Devils
have crossed just . once in,, the last
six; years. ;.
Although the rivalry between Duke
and Carolina dates back to 1889, the
two institutions have fought six of
their eleven gridiron battles since the
fall of , 1922. ; There was more than
a quarter of a century that faculty
rulings prevented the annual ' en
gagements: Since the revival in 1922,
the Tar Heels have won. every game,
while the Blue Devils have .scored one
touchdown . t ' ' : r
That' touchdown iame in the1 first
quarter of the 1923 "meeting. '" The
Tar Heel quarterback elected to pass
deep in his own territory and Ed
Bullock grabbed the pass and sprint
ed 20 yards to a touchdown, A final
half comeback gave the Tar Heels a
14 to 6 decision for the game.

From the lower Cape "Fear there
came two boys. One played quarter
back and was a blonde, the other play
ed full-back and kept his complexion
hidden by a head gear, but exhibited
his football wares along with the bare
headed blonde. But the western'boys
brbughf along a boy who "almost equal
ied the two eastern stars. In fact he
almost outdid the two plunging backs
from the lower corner of North Caro
lina. The two eastern boys were 01
sen and Brittain. The westerner
was Mills.
These boys almost monopolized
honors in the annual high school
championship game played here yes
terday.. Wilmington for , the second
successive time copped "the title with
a 14-9 win over Statesville. Both
teams seemed . to - pick certain parts
of the game to score. Statesville
ringing' up their nine points in the
f irs half, while the Champions waited
until the last half to annex the title.
The game' was good. It was the
best high school football game played
in recent years in Chapel HilL Neither
side seemed inclined to yield much to
the other and it was for three long
runs to bring twenty of ; the points
scored. The other three points came
from the foot of this same Mills boy
who gave -Wilmington so much
trouble. He booted the ball from the
twenty yard line through the up
rights following a fumbled punt by
Brittian. '
Statesville scored its- touchdown
when Mills took the ball on an off
tackle play on the forty "yard line,
cut back and raced the remaining dis
tance to the goal for a touchdown. ;
Little happened during the remaind
er of the half, but the fireworks broke
loose during the early part of the
third quarter. Brittain made up for
one of his fumbles with a 25 yard
run to put the ball close to the side
lines. This was what his running
mate, Olsen, wanted. He' took the
ball on the next play and ran through
the Statesville team fifty-five -yards
to the goal. t He had little trouble
pulling this run. Whenever a States
ville man got in his way he ran over
him. It was simple process from the
"Swede" Olsen decided that things
didn't look so well even then for the
Cape Fear team so he reeled off 35
yards more to put the ball on States
ville's 7 yard line. This was late in
the third quarter, f Here Statesville
made a noble stand. They- held , the
powerful Wilmington backs for five
downs. But "their ' great work her e
went naught, when a" few' moments
later, Mills, sent the ball thirty yards
down the field' to Brittian who start
ed out for the Statesville goal. 4 He
was stopped, but not for:lohg. Alter
nating with Olsen, he soon had the
1927 champions in the lead again. v
So .far as the championship was
concerned the game was oyer. . Wilm
ington had won. . But for quite a few
spectators there was 'more left, En
thusiastic f sths got together and made
Kenan Stadium resemble the Yankee
Stadium 'during ' a championship
prize f ight. ' It looked like every one
was fighting, but they stopped, when
Coach Collins brought the Heels on
the field for their last practice be
fore the Duke game.,
. In the two lines, Robinson, captain
of the champions, and Lackey guard
for the" losers, were the stars. Cap
tain Robinson gave an exhibition of
Ray Farris' charging when he stop

Five plays' were read in' the local
theatre at the authors' reading of the
Playmakers , organization last, night.
Ananias and Sapphira," by L. W.
O'Cdnnell; "The Family," by Cathe
rine wnson iNolen; and "Half breed
Yellow," by G. Yates McDaniel, all of
which are the products of students
registered ' in Professer Koch's and
Hubert - Heffner's classes at the Uni
versity. "Oh Promise Me," is a play
produced in the courses that Profes
sor -Heffner taught at the University
of 1 Arizona a few years ago. The
other play read last night, "Graveyard
Shift," is the work of Edith Daesking
who wrote the piece under the tute
lage of Professor Koch while he was
teaching at the University of Calif or
nia . last summer. ' ,
The play committee composed of
Dr. Urban T. Holmes, Mrs. Anne
Majette Grant, Mrs. Louis Graves,
Mr. A. C. Nash, and Mr. A. S. Law
rence,, will select the three plays that
will be produced February 8 and 9.
The end is near. Only a few hours
remain before the king of all sports
will hang up its mantle and give way
to another sport. " The last dying
words of North. Carolina, football will
be uttered on Kenan Field when the
final whistle of the Duke-Carolina
game sounds, v ;
The other teams in the state hung
up their , equipment - Thanksgiving
day. But Carolina and "Duke lingered
a while longer. They will quit today.
To many .the outcome , of the contest
this afternoon will determine the suc
cess or failure of the 1928 campaigns
for the two teams. But to those who
know, Carolina has already concluded
a successful season. They did that
when they beat Virginia last Thurs-v
day. Duke; too, has been favored this
year and have had their most suc
cessful season since football was rein
stated after the war.
.But the game is important. It will
decide the state championship. It will
also serve to bring together the two
most powerful grid machines in North
Carolina in the finest stadium in
North Carolina. The
the two institutions has made the
rivalry that existed long before Duke
became Duke and was merely Trin
ity College more .intense. It is pos
sible that the players on the two
teams prefer to win this game more
than' any other. It seems so from
the atmosphere 'around the two foot
ball camps and on the-campuses of
the two institutions.
Duke with only one casualty among
its long list of luminaries will meet a
crippled Tar Heel team. Captain
Harry Schwartz, star., pivot man of
North Carolina, will probably start
in spite of injuries, however there is
slight chance that the torn' ligament
he suffered in the Virginia contest will
have healed enough for him to play
this afternoon. However, the loss of
the captain of the team is not the on
ly handicap the Heels will be under,
for Pete Wyrick, sophomore- quarter
back, will be unable to play in the
game this afternoon. Ever since the "
Cavalier game, the Carolina field gen
eral has been confined to his bed with
an injury suffered two weeks ago.
The only casualty in the Blue Devil
camp is that of Godfrey, fullback. He
was injured in an automobile acci
dent after the Davidson game. ;
All other members of the two teams
are in good condition. They all are
also primed for this game. It will
Monday a ; committee including! be the climax to
Professors Fred Koch,-Hubert Heff
ner and Sam Selden, Mr. A. S. Law
rence, and Mrs. Anne Majette Grant
will judge the tryouts for parts in the
plays. Two plays will be staged, one
at 4:30 and one' at 7:00.

the first time that Duke has made a

The game is likety to be played in
the air. Neither. vteam yields -much
