Elmer Hall's brilliant reading
of "Journey's End" Sunday eve
ning in the Playmaker theatre
dramatically impressed the fair
sized crowd present with the
reason why this "war play,"
after the deluge of them in the
past few years, is breaking all
records for attendance and ap
proval. ;
Mr. Hall, the new technical
director for the University's
theatre this year, read a host of
characterization into the lines.
The setting was one that permit-!
ted the imagination to run free.
Mr. Hall had hung the stage with
black drapes. He read from a
table on which the only light in
the theatre was trained, a sim
ple desk light. Accordingly, as
the play proceeded, the audience
used the black drapes of the
stage on which to visualize the
dug-out setting in France.
The play is largely one of
action with the noise of burst
ing shells and rifle bullets.
Even these noises were pictured
in the imaginative minds of the
audience. When Mr. Hall turned
leaves of the book from which
he was reading, the reflected
light on the black drapes, flash
ing up momentarily, seemed to
many like the glare from burst
ing shells.
The audience saw from the
i commendable reading why this
nlav has been termed great and
1 not just another war play. The
1 Englishman, Browne,-tne autnor
has nut many clever touches m
the plot, probably because he
wrote from actual happenings.
For instance, when the young
hero dies from shrapnel wounds,
he does not pass away in the
arms of his friend as so many
war plays show. He died alone
and when his friend found him,
he felt, rather than said, his
emotions.
The reading was the second of
the term series.

A new Carolina football soner.
really the first football song of
an original nature that has ever
been written for the local uni
versity, has been completed by
two students and will be intro
duced for the first time to the
public at the big game with
Virginia on Turkey Day.
The words will be found, else
where on this page. But with
out the music, the person read
ing them cannot visualize the
lively i proportions which the
piece assumes under orchestra-
ion and vocal chords. When
played and sung yesterday af-
ernoon by the co-authors, the
walls of Person hall resounded
with an air that rivalled but did
not mimic the strains of the
famous "On Wisconsin."
The two authors, both law
students, roommates, and both
from Ashe ville, are Moore Bry
son who contributed the words,
and Wex Malone who wrote the
music. '
The song having already been
accepted by the University band,
Mr. Malone is proceeding to com
plete the orchestration of the
melody so that the band can
practice it next week. The piece
will be introduced to students
during the week .when chapel
periods are to be given over to
the learning of it. It will be
sung in chapel periods .regularly
until the big Thanksgiving game
so that on that day the vicinity
of Kenan Memorial stadium
may ring with its stirring mel
od-ir and significant words.
It has been pointed out that
whereas other universities and
schools have individual and ori
ginal football, songs, that so far

Cn-Ftl's Parse Disillusions
Male Students As To Contents
(By Frank J. Manheim)
Co-ed graduate students have
always commanded a great deal
of admiration and respect from
students. They have been ad
mitted to be different from the
usual run of girls. Serious, dis
daining the many unimportant
details that consume so much
valuable time, they have been
considered to be far above the
girl whose thoughts never went
beyond clothes, paint and pow
der, men et cetera. The use of
j "have beens" is wise. For Sat-
urday evening, in Sutton's, the

Crime was apparently on the
increase in Chapel Hill this past
week when eight cases were
brought before recorder's court
yesterday morning.
Hazel Taylor, negress, was
charged with assault with a
deadly weapon on the person of
Sarah Taylor! She was found
not guilty.
John Lloyd was charged with
violating section 4488 of the
Public Laws of 1919, and on ac
count of his-mentally enfeebled
condition was given suspended
sentence. ' ;
John Alston, Jr., negro,
charged with disorderly conduct
in a public place, was fined costs
of court.
Jimmie Cates, negro, charged
with assault with a deadly wea
pon, a bottle, on the person of
John Alston, was fined costs of
court.
C. B. Black negro, charged
with forging the name of Frank
James on a check, was bound
over to superior court.
G. R. Carlisle, white, charged
with driving in a reckless and
careless manner and doing dam
age to an automobile owned by
Dr. B. B. Lloyd, was fined $36.35.
Reuben Winston, negro,
charged with assault on the per
son of Bob Jeff Strowd with a
pistol and stick, was given sus
pended sentence of four months
on the road on payment ot costs
of court and promise of a year's
good behavior. The pistol that
Winston used was a toy one that
ejected cigarettes.
B. C. Black, negro, charged
with oassing a worthless check
drawn on the Bank of Chapel
Hill for the sum of $2.00 to S
Berman. was bound over to
superior court and released on
a bond of $150.
John Sharp Williams Says "Tree
Named John" Real Contribu
tion To Mississippi Literature.
As the time draws near for
the appearance of John B. Sale,
author and interpreter of "The
Tree Named John," in a read
ing before the Chapel Hill Com
munity club on December 2, in
terest grows in this man who has
produced a book of negro folk
literature which is in the opin
ion of many a masterpiece.
Almost daily numerous: com
ments and press reports come to
people who are interested in
Mr. Sale and his work. Among
the most complimentary and in
teresting of these are the fol
lowing r - -
Senator John Sharpr Williams
has said of the volume, "I read
'The : Tree Named: John' with
keen appreciation. I was a plantation-raised
boy myself, and the
book brought f back early asso
ciations. It is astonishing that
I recalled, when I read the book,
so many of the old negro super
stitions, a number of which I
had seemingly forgotten. You
may quote me as saying that
'The Tree Named John'" is a real
.contribution to Mississippi literature.""
And from the far-famed "Sat
urday Revew of Literature
comes this statement: "A; fas
cinating human-interest story, a
recreation of the folklore and
folk life of a Mississippi plantation."
While from the "Commercial
Dispatch" of Columbus, Miss.,
the home town of the author,
we learn that "The first pur-
nspr of 'The Tree
Jnhn' was C.
THOUSAND SCHOOL
CHILDREN TO HEAR
U. S. MARINE BAND
County superintendents and
school officials are cooperating
with Harry F. Comer, secretary
of the Y.MC..A., in providing
transportation for more than
1,000 school children who are
expected to attend the matinee
performance 'of the United
States Marine Band in Kenan
Stadium next Thursday, Novem
ber 14. "
The problem of transportation
is much simplified by the fact
that 500 of these children will
come from Durham. The oth
ers will come from Hillsbpro,
Mebane, Bynum, Pittsboro," San-
ford, Efland, and other nearby
towns.
While at the University the
Marine Band will give two con
certs. The matinee program
will take place in Kenan sta
dium, the University's beauti
ful outdoor forum, at 3:30
Thursday afternoon.
Owing to repairs that are be
ing made to the roof of Me
morial hall, the evening per
formance that was to have been
held there will be given at 8:30
in the tin can. Formerly known
as "the world's largest frigi-

World War," said Colonel Jo
seph Hyde Pratt at the Armis
tice day services yesterday in
Gerrard hall, "but they recall the
spirit of unselfishness, self-sac
rifice and patriotism of all those
connected with the events of
1914-1918. Today is a day of
reverence for the accomplish
ments and the patriotic services
achieved during the war. It re
calls the thrills of joy and
thanksgiving that burst forth
when the Armistice was signed
11 years ago today," he went on,
and the tumultuous expression
of joy that replaced the pent up
emotions, the agony of suspense,
which were the lot of all engaged
in the conflict."
Colonel Pratt, former profes
sor of geology in the University,
one-time state geologist and sec
retary of the state highway
commission, served in-France as
colonel of the 105th Engineers
in the 30th Division. His regi
ment saw service in Belgium
early during the war and took
part in both phases of the fam
ous Somme offensive.

Chapel Hill, having only about

bring the band to the Univer
sity. .

FIRE BREAKS OUT
IN RUBBISH DUMP
- Fire broke out last night at
about 9:15 o'clock, in the rub
bish dump at the southeast cor
ner of the Intramural Athletic
field. The rubbish apparently
caught fire or was fired first, and
within a few minutes had blazed
sufficiently to catch on the edge
of the pine forest at the back of
the field.
Chief Foister and his men re
sponded to the alarm, and after
an examination of the fire, stood
by to see that it did not spread
too far or get beyond control.
Most of the occupants of the
dormitories in the quadrangle
and triangle turned out to see
the blaze, but quickly lost inter
est as a misty rain increased
and the fire died down. Except
for the pine trees at the back of
the rubbish dump, little dam
age was done.
