A New- Carolina ' ' .
- The first issue of the Carolina
Magazine, literary supplement
to the Daily Tar Heel, has made
its appearance. Although it is
far too early to judge accurately
the reception tendered the mag
azine in its new format by the
students we predict that it will
be more popular than it has
been for some years past. .
Editor Mebane has adopted a
sane attitude toward his publi
cation, as evidenced by his edi
torial in the' first issue. He states
that "this year the Carolina
Magazine will be published
for the student body as a whole.
In past years students, perhaps,
have been afraid to submit con
tributions ; and the magazine has
been written by a few individ
uals interested in literature.
Our aim is to. create & readable
During the past few years the,
magazine has been steadily de
clining in popularity among the
students. It has been regarded
as the official organ of the cam
pus litterati, published solely for
their benefit and edification.
Those on intimate terms with
the small group dubbed the lit
terati were vastly amused, for
the appellation was obviously a
misnomer. But the campus per
sisted in regarding the members
of the group with, something ap
proaching awe and certainly, a
very active dislike. Much of the
magazine's unpopularity may be
attributed directlyt to the mis
taken opinion of its editors and
contributors held by the stu
dents. This year the magazine is
masquerading under no false
assumption of intellectual super
iority or literary genius. The
staff and the contributors frank
ly admit that they are merely
. persons who would like to write
and are taking advantage of the
medium offered by the magazine;
they do not claim to be under
graduate literary prodigies. Wo
are willing to wager that the
campus will find their efforts far
more readable than the material
that has appeared in the maga
zine of ;other years, and that the
publication is more popular this
year than it has been in quite
, a few student generations.
Professor Horace Williams
made the remark a few nights
ago that the present day college
student is entangled in a cur
riculum of courses w,hich is too
highly specialized to permit edu
cation on broad, widely cultural
lines. He stressed the point that
lack , of knowledge and wisdom
in many fields is also lack of
education in its finest sense.
Quite unconsciously we, in this
world of specialization, are per
haps prone to lay too much em
phasis on one specific subject
and to glance superficially at the
rest. But specialization in itself
is Jy no means a vice; it is a
necessity in the world of ex
change in which we live. And
a general, cultural knowledge
has its virtues. Both types of
intellectual training are seem
ingly essential to him who would
be really educated. It seems that
the maxim of knowing every
thing about something and some
thing about everything is a fair
ly good one for the college man
to live by.
The trouble, however, in get
ting an education which is at
once specific and general is that
a great many students seek
"crip" courses to round out their
culture. They llo doubt take
the attitude that their best ef
fort should be placed on their
major subjects and that,-as they
must take electives in 4rder to
obtain a wider culture, they
should take tnose courses which
require least work. No one can
deny that this practice is wide
spread. Whether or not it is on
the increase, no one can .tell.
Yet, it does constitute a prob
lem, for it is as detrimental to
the University as to the indi
vidual. A solution to this perplexity
has not as yet been advanced.
Certainly the situation deserves
one; nevertheless, it shall not
come from this article. It is
obvious, however, that the mass
of students cannot obtain cul
ture as long as they continue
to waste their time in pursuit of
"crip" courses. It is also ap-.
parent that students will con
tinue to register for ""crips" as
long as . there are any "crips" in
the college curriculum to be reg
istered for. B. M.
UP WITH THE RATTLE
To the Editor: .'
In days of old
When knights were bold
And the yo-yo not invented,
The gay buffoon
Made a toy balloon
And went away contented.
Now times have changed
And in town or grange
Each day brings forth its
Then someone thought
And a yo-yo wrought
To pacify their ravings.
Who will be the one toput the
toy balloon and the baby rattle
before the Carolina student
body? The juvenile complex is
far from being satisfied with
the yo-yo that peerless medium
of expression for puerile ten
dencies! The yo-yo is all-sufficient
for a large portion of our
noble and sophisticated under
graduate group, but the clamor
for more varied and , complex
instruments of recreation re
sounds with a mighty echo.
Shall we permit such a vital
need to go unappeased? Shall
the heart-rending moans of the
multitude m distress go un
heeded? You, ingenuously in
genious freshmen! you, altruis
tically inclined upperclassmen !
Set in motion the cobwebbed
wheels of a long untouched in
tellect to devise some plaything
that will be universal in its ap
peal! The yo-yo alas ! is all
too feeble, too inadequate, too
mortal a machine to divert such
cogent potential minds as rest
dormant within the shapely
skulls of our future leaders of
America! The cry is for more
inspiring, more , individualistic
instruments of diversion give
Us the rattle and the toy balloon !
Nothing can make a man more
air-conscious than , a fiat tire.

WHY A TOUCHDOWN

Here is the world. We live

Two make a couple. Ruffles are

of this survey and in the future
there will be an even greater
