He said that that practice is termed theft; such is the case in the University when a man uses another's knowledge for his own benefit. Every one here is left with his own particular personality. If he chooses to work1 honestly, all is well; but in case a man elects to borrow work he is termed a dishonest person ; which, automatically bars him from the University. . - Foerster Finds This The Dark Age Of American Scholarship Seerley to Speak Dr. F.

A vitally interesting study of American scholarship is pre sented by Professor Norman Foerster, member of the facul ty and a noted authority on American literature, in his lat est book, "The American Schol ar," which has just been re leased by the ; University of North Carolina press. , In this volume Professor Foer ster faces frankly the question of whether our literary scholars have lost sight of their proper objects of study through an all but complete surrender to the mechanical tendencies of the age, and the sensational and commercial spirit of America. According to the author, this is" the dark age of American scholarship. He points out that we are not only fulfilling the prophecy of Renan , that the study of literature would be re placed by the' study of literary history, but that we are trans forming our allegiance from the republic of letters to general history, sociology and psychol ogy. This transference of alle giance, Professor Foerster ar gues, is evidence that our schol ars suspect their own superficial ity, which they are trying to overcome by moving farther and farther from the true center of literary study. The book contains a sharp, yet moderate, criticism t of the types of the modern professor and their system of training the scholars for the future. But it is by no means merely-critical. The volume presents a plan of education calculated to attract instead of repelling promising students. Among scholars Professor Foerster is regarded as one of the country's most distinguished authorities on American- litera ture. He is the author of a number of books and magazine articles dealing with that sub-! ject. His most recent books are "American Criticism," recog nized in the League of Nations list of 1928, and "The Reinter pretation of American -Litera ture,"-, which he edited for the American Literature group of the Modern Language associa tion. : The University press has scheduled nine other books or. release this fall and winter.

NUMBER 16 BAND WILL TAKE 62 MEN TO GAME Uniforms To Be Issued for Tech Carolina Game Tuesday; Be gins Routine for Coming Year. The University band has got ten under way on its routine for the coming year. The member ship numbers 80 men, but only about 30 of these men have been with the band before. Although the losses were heavy among the old men, the new material is better than usual due to the growth of music work in the high schools throughout the state. The fact that the band is making a real growth is shown in the relative time required to advance through certain stages of music During the past four years the band has worked un der the following schedule : the first year through January was taken up with march music, then changes were made to easy con cert music; the second year through the fall quarter shifted back to march music, and then to more difficult concert music for the second quarter; the third year began preparation of a very difficult concert program in November; this year work has already begun On concert music. The band will make the trip . to Atlanta for the Georgia Tech Carolina game, and will possibly play for the Georgia-Yale game in Athens on the next day. For this trip the band will have the recently acquired , uniforms, which were recently donated by the University athletic associa tion. Last year the band put on a . campaign to 1 raise funds to purchase uniforms but only a small sum was obtained. This fall the athletic association i agreed to purchase the uniforms, with this original fund to be maintained for repairs and re placements. Blazers of blue, trimmed and monogramed in white, with white duck trousers will constitute the uniform for the men; with a complete uni form for the director and for the drum major. The band will maintain the tradition that has existed since its organization of the men going without hats on parade Investigation of other schools led to the decision to buy this informal type of uni form rather than something of a military order. This is the custom among the larger univer sities who do not have military training and R. O. T. C. bands. The uniforms are expected to arrive luesaay ana win oe is sued for the Atlanta trip. The officers of the band are as follows: T. S. McCorkle, direc tor; J. H. Brunjes, president; J. W. Clinard, secretary; Paul Patten, manager; C. H. White, Jr., assistant director, and E. L. White, drum major. LIGHT DOCKET FOR RECORDER'S COURT Only three cases were tried before Recorder Henshaw yes terday morning, and all these were concerned with liquor.
