Now that the snowand sleet have
melted,away.:,and allowed the spring
sun out again, perhaps we shall soon
be able to do our "outside" reading
By H. J. Galland
When our headline writer declared
that "Glee Club Men Are Not Flam
ing 1 Youths On Trips," we began to
wonder whether he was trying to in
fer that thejt were "not so" hot."
State College student have boycot
ted their laundry because they claim
the manager gave the boys rough
treatment. Over here it's the shirts
'that get the rough treatment.
If the special "fight" bus to Florida
were to be filled up with some of our
Carolina pugilists, they might teach

The only difference between a fresh
man and a senior is that the fresh
man admits there are still some few
things for him- to learn.

Sunday Night '
An attractive picture to. us now
existing only in the7 imagination is
of small and intimate Sunday night
gatherings at homes of various pro
fessors. Students drop ' casually in,
- i r
sometimes one by himself, sometimes
a group. The professor welcomes
them in a manner not commonly as
sumed in the classroom, one charac
terized by certain warmth and in
formality entirely dissociated with
history, math or languages.
On winter nights they sit about the
fire together, lights turned low and
only pipes and cigarettes glowing in
the semi-darkness. . No matter what
the topic of conversation it may
range from a philosophical discussion
of comparative religions to the res
pective advantages of Fords and Chev
rolets, from searching questions as to
the functions of education to a re
harshing of the best Buccaneer wit,
from wild tales of past events to puz
zled wonderment at the future.
In this genial conversation student
draws closer to professor. Teacher be
comes man; and communion impos
sible for the classroom seems perfectly
natural with the home as a back
ground. Pupil is no longer merely
one who must be quizzed with ques-
"To prepare us for complete living
is the function which education has
to . discharge," once declared that
eminent English philosopher, Her
bert Spencer. . There is probably
doubt in many minds as to what
Spencer meant by "complete living."
The functions of education have been
and probably always will be disputed.
This process of. acquiring an edu
cation, however,' certainly n involves
more than the - mere absorbing of
facts. If the professor does not, at
least ,to a - certain extent, stimulate
thoughtin the minds of his students
he does but little for them.
One of the greatest objections to
classroom work is that some profes
sors resent interruption by the stu
dent. .Lectures, brilliant and learned
though they may . be, are of small
value unless they are understood by
the students for whom they are pri
marily intended. Many students, con
sequently, have become afraid of ask
ing questions in the classroom. They
have adopted the belief that by in
terrogating the instructor, they "dis
play, not . their eagerness tov under
stand, but. their ignorance. So they
allow the bare facts to soak in, mem
orize notes, and repeat quotations
j which they do not comprehend. '
Lectures are often dubbed "dry"
because the student does not under
stand them: arid he is afraid to in
terrupt the professor and ask for an
explanation of points about which he"
has no knowledge. -
The mere reading of a lecture, even
a simple one which can be compre
hended by the entire class, proves
of little worth unless it stimulates
the students to think about it. Sure
ly education is more than the sipping
of facts; it should help one to be
able to judge for himself, to reason,
and to develop ideas of his own.
One may splash gently into sci
ence and learn who Voltaire was; one
may taste of literature and discover
that Louis Couperus was a Dutch
writer and that Rossetti was a pre
Raphealite; one may indulge ginger
ly in the study of medicine and ex
amine a cadaver or two but unless
he has learned to think for himself,
his education has been of little "avail

Fair and Warmer
There's no telling what is going to
happen these tlays. You may wake
up to find yourself in tropic sunshine
and warmth, or among the ice fkes
of the frozen North. The recent turn
in weather provided some of the pret
tiest scenes we have come upon in
Chapel HilL The sun shining through
he ice covered trees, glistening and
sparkling and white, was a sight to
remember. But then, as usual, there
was the aftermath, or after mud.
Chapel Hill for; once surpassed itself
and turned out bigger and better sup
plies, of soft, clinging mud than usual,
and that is a big order. As the gal
who sings the ditties for the records
puts it, "If you want the rainbow,
you must have the ra-a-in!" N.
The impending Spring holidays will
make the following bill of directions

if Your Son Is Home from College":
Look in your gas tank. If tank is
empty son is home.

hundred dollars. If no .return wire

Ed Butler, while coaching the box
ing team one afternoon recently,
stepped a round or two with a mem
ber of the squad. Ed clipped the
fighter on the side of the jaw and
broke his ankle. No, ma'am, we

But it happened. We saw the fellow

crutches. Apparently he tripped as he
either fell or ducked backward, and
there it was a left to the jaw and

Familiarity and Contempt ,
Our own soon-not-to-be tri-weekly
headlines the results of the recent
Marauette-N. C. debate as follows:
"Hot Air Artists Stage Heated De
bate Against , Marquette University
Forensic Warriors." Now, the ob
vious conclusion is that the "forensic
warriors" stepped all over the "hot
air artists." They didn't, however.
Carolina won handily. We are merely
too familiar with our own team, and
dazzled .by the fact that the opponents
came from Wisconsin all of which is
another thirty-second , sermon in
something or other. .. .

of any organization on the campus,

the most trivial of subjects for dis

to air campus problems anddo some
thing of valueto the University, but
instead the two bodies solemnly argue
over birth control and whether or
not Carolina co-eds are flappers.
Well, it all makes interesting reading
the next morning in the Tar Heel.
Again, Hot Stuff
Another fire this week provided
some amusement for the confirmed
fire hounds who think nothing of
jumping out. of bed at three in the
morning to follow the little red Ford
truck and its larger sister to the
scene of the excitement. There was
the usual sudden and unexpected f oun
tain from a broken section of hose,
but the real feature, for us, was the
insistent honking of a car with a lone
occupant which tried to get through
the fire lines. One of the town cops,
flashlight in hand, stood in the middle
of , the road and signalled for the
car to stay, back. The car came on,
still honking, and nearly hit, the in
dignant cop, who jumped out of the
way at' the last minute. It was Chief
Foister, Commander of the Chapel
Hill Fire Department. , v

Dean Is Famous Movie and
Stage Actor; Manages the
Town Theatre of Columbia,
The Town Theatre, Little Theatre
of Columbia, South Carolina, is pre
paring to present their most finished
production, an interpretation of
Rachel Crother's "He and She," be
fore a Chapel Hill audience in the
Playmaker Theatre Friday and Sat
urday nights, March 8 and 9.
Together with the Pasadena Com
munity Playhouse, the Dallas Little
Theatre, the Lobero Theatre of Lob-
ero, California, and the Cleveland
Playhouse, the Town Theatre is one
of the five most outstanding ama
teur groups in North America.
William Dean, manager of the
Town Theatre, is a brother of Basil
Dean, famous Englisn actor. William
Dean has had the following engage
ments in America : with George M.
Cohan, A. L. Erlanger, ; the Selwyns,
Augustin Duncan, the Shuberts, B.
Iden Payne, Frank Reicher, Lupino
Lane, the Fox Film Company, Fam-
.ous -fiayers-LiasKy uqrporation,
Charles Dillingham, and -, Mr. and
Mres. Charles D. Coburn.
The cast of "He and She" is as fol

G. E. Whitehead ; Ann Hereford
his wife, Mrs. Julius Taylor; Daisy
Hereford, his sister, Miss Eppes
Jones; Millicent, his daughter, Miss
Sarah Quattlebaum; Doctor Reming
ton, his father-in-law, Alex Majrtin;
Keith McKenzie, his assistant, Mr.
Edwin Pritchard; Ruth Creel, his
wife's friend, Miss Lutes Robertson;
the maid, Miss Daisy Powell. They

The plot of the play has to deal
with woman's rights and responsibili
ties in addition to duties and respon
sibilities' that a woman owes to her
husband. The play has a 'delightful
bit of romance and much wit and
humor. It entirely escapes the sor
didness that is found in some measure
in problem plays. The play is con
sidered the best that RacheJ Crothers
has ever written. -
The Playmakers announce this pro
duction in lieu of the American com
edy that they guaranteed to the sea
son ticket subscribers last fall. ( Tick
ets will be ready for exchange Mon
day, March 4. Hubert F. Hef f ner,
associate director of the Playmakers,
warns all season ticket holders that
contrary to usuage in the past no
block of seats will ; be reserved for
them, but those who apply first will
be served. Single tickets will be sold
at one dollar each. Reservations are
to be made at Sutton's Drug Store
as is the case with all Playmaker
productions. Not wishing to overtax
the facilities of their building, the
Playmakers will sell only a small
number of standing room privileges
at fifty cents each. "

At the regular weekly banquet of
the Chapel Hill Rotary Club held in
the ball room of the Carolina Inn
Wednesday evening, Mr. and Mrs.
Jerry Slade presented a group of
Mexican folk- songs. Their perfor
mance was immediately preceeded by
a short explanatory talk by Mrs.
Slade in which she told the signifi
cance of the Mexican costume which
she ore and told of a few occasions
when the national costume of Mexico
is: always worn by the women.
The first number was "The Soldier's
Song" sung by Mr. and Mrs. Slade,
Mr. Slade accompanying on the guitar.
The second selection was "The Two
Roses" in which a lover compares his
sweetheart to roses arid asks which
is the more beautiful. It is a Mexican
love song, and was sung by Mrs.
Slade.- .; -". -:;
The third song was a lament, The
Exile's Song. It is coneerned.with the
exile who is banished by Mexico and
forced to spend the rest of his life
in foreign countries. The fourth num
ber was purely a folk song' with in
numerable verses, similiar to the old
American tunes such as "The Old
Cow Died" etc.. It was entitled "The
thing snappy?" We've heard all that
before, too. We just know how you
