Chapel Hill Man
Is Highly Honored

gineering Corps of the United States
Army, native of Chapel Hill and
graduate of the University with the
class of 1900, has been appointed by
President Coolidge as a member of
the Mississippi River Commission, it
has been learned here.
"He is qualified for the position not
only by his long training as an army
engineer," says the Engineering News
Record, "but also by reason of actual
experience during flood periods on the
lower Mississippi. As district en
gineer at Vicksburg during.the floods
of 1912 and 1913 he was able to ob
tain first-hand information of condi
tions brought about by the highest
stages recorded until the 1927 floods."
Mr. Graves after taking his M. A.
degree here entered West Point in
1901 and was graduated second in his
class in 1905. He captained the
Army football team in his senior
year and was head coach at West
Point for several seasons after.
He went to Europe in 1917 with
the first A. E. F. unit General
Pershing and his staff and was
there throughout the war, being
Medal. He retired from the military
service in 1921 but was called back
into' it two or three years ago in con
nection with Mississippi River flood

Male Quartet Sings
For State Students
The Criterion male quartet of New
York City sang at State College last
night. The quartet, which has
made phonograph records for six re
producing companies, is on its first
tour of North Carolina, having re
cently sung in New Bern, Greensboro,
Charlotte, and Asheville. - They rank
as one of the finest male quartets in
the country.
Prof. J. E. Woodhouse spoke on
government over state WPTF during
the ' University hour yesterday after
noon from four to five. The musical
part of the program was furnished

"Individual independence is a good
thing as long as it does not encroach
on the rights of others, yet when any
one walks on the grass of the cam
pus he encroaches on the rights of
others to have a beautiful campus,"
stated Dr. J. G. deR. Hamilton in a
chapel talk yesterday morning in
which he spoke not as a member of
the faculty but as a member of the
University community.
In showing how the spirit to keep
the grass looking well has gone down
Dr. Hamilton told how he had notic
ed the beauty of the grass in the rec
tangle between the South Building
and Franklin Street when he first
came to the University over forty
years ago. Dr. Hamilton admired
the beauty of the grass, and wonder
ed how it was kept so. For a long
time he was unable to find out why
the grass was so beautiful, but later
an alumnus told him that the literary
societies used to fine those who walk
ed on the grass a dollar for each of
fense. Now there are beaten paths across
the grass in many parts of the cam
pus. The path from the post office
entrance of the campus to the corner
of Old East is probably the worst,
but there are many others which de
tract from the beauty of the campus.
There seems to be no sentiment
against walking on the grass now,
but if this class (speaking of the
Freshmen) would try to create a sen
timent against it, the influence would
increase and go to the other classes
and the untrodden grass would sig
nify to the visitors that we are not
lazy or thoughtless.
"I am calling your attention to
something that will be worthwhile to
the individual and also to the class
as a whole," said" Dr. Hamilton in
concluding his talk.
, Mac Gray will speak this morning
on the same subject, but he will dis
cuss the problem from the student's
point of view.

Jordan's Home Is
Destroyed by Fire
- .
A very serious fire occurred in the
home of W. P. Jordan, on Henderson
street about 4 p. m. Saturday " eve
ning. The loss was considerable,
amounting to approximately $4,000,
including water dagames. The fire
is said to have started in the attic
from a defective flue, and immediate
ly spread to adjoining rooms. The
building was a nine-room, frame
structure and burned , very rapidly.
The fire department was on the scene
immediately, but the fire had gained
such headway that it required ex
traordinary efforts of the firemen to
put it under control. ,
The lower story of the house was
not injured to such a great extent
by the fire, but was completely flood
ed by water, seriously damaging the
furniture and other household arti
cles. English Singers To

Flonzaley Quartet Made Final
Bow to University Audience
i- Friday Night.
When the Flonzaley Quartet made
its final bow Friday night before' the
University audience it had completely
won its audience by the brilliance of
its playing. This is its silver an
niversary tour and unfortunately its
final one. ' . ,

a superb sense of proportion, ability
to rise, abovateehnique, and a deep.
aesthetic sense make the Flonzaley
Quartet the most accomplished and
the most outstanding chamber-music
orchestra in the world.

not altogether deprive the musical
world of the talents of the group how
ever, as two of the three old vetrans,
Adolf o Betti, first violin, and Alfred
Pochon, second violin, will open a
school, in New York City together
with their new recruit of five years,

d'Archambeau, the remaining member
of the original three that have been
together for twenty-five" continuous
years will return to his native country,
Belgium, to teach music there.
The quartet as it presented itself
here is a very cosmopolitan organiza
tion. ' Betti is an Italian, d'Archam
beau, a Belgian, Pochon, a Frenchman
and Moldavan, a Russian. They were
financed in their early years by E. J.
de Coppet, a naturalized American of
Switzer descent, and made their head
quarters at Flonzaley, Switzerland.
The numbers rendered by . the
quartet were the following: The
Quartet Selection in B Flat Major by
Beethoven, the Intermezzo from
Brahm's Quartet in C Minor, and

Owing to several comments on the
recent action in which a number of

that many of the students believe
that bumming is prohibited. Such,
however, is not the case, and Mayor
Council states that anyone is at per
