The chapel exercise yesterday morning was conducted by Cheerleader Jack Barrett, who endeavored to teach the fresh men the new football song which appeared in yesterday's issue of the Daily Tar feel. Steve Lynch assisted the cheer leader in the singing. Telling the freshmen of the song, .Barrett said, that it was original, being written by two Carolina men, and hence might be accepted as the. Carolina foot ball song if sung creditably. He ventured to state that it con tained -no little of that quality called "pep" and invited the agreement of the freshmen after the pianist had played the music Then Steve Lynch sang the song. ' After testing their voice,s the freshmen took up the air. Soon Gerrard hall was ringing with the lively; strains of. the new song, and before chapel was over the men had, at Cheerleader Barrett's injunction, "really killed it."

Collegians Do Admirers Dirty Trick; Wear Regular Clothes r "Conservatism That's the watchword" of the collegians of 1929. So says Sam Love of the United States Press in a Sun day feature. "Theyx have done their admirers a dirty trick this fall. They have begun to wear regular clothes.", ' Sam is writing of the reform of Joe College as he has seen it in the universities around the Manhattan village. His reaction after the survey seems to be one of surprise, especially when he finds that "A great wave of something or other possibly a desire to look human has swept over the frat houses and dormi- tories and the result is so start ling that it would have been noticed before had not public attention been diverted by the lowering hemline of United States SteeL and women's dresses." The writer seems to be par ticularly startled that the uni versity men have become well dressed. He quotes one sophis ticated young man as saying: "Oh no, it's not being one any more It's not ood form, you know . . . I mean it's not the correct thing to 'slop around Even last year it was rather the berries to drop in at a dance in any old outfit, but this year any one who tried it would simply get thrown out on his spine. Evening clothes are the only thing for .dances . . . as lar as formal occasions are concerned. And a dance is a formal occa sion, isn't it?" As another 'smart young man has put it, "There are a great many things wrong with the world, but why add your person to the list?" And so far as cam pus attire is concerned, the most condemning blow of all is struck when Mr. Love declares: "It is also bad form for even a star athlete to go around wear ing a sweater with a big letter on it. In fact, wild horses could not drag an athlete into such a sweater." Take heed to the decree of Fashion,- O, ye heroes oty tne athletic arena! From clothes the critic turns tn mil etre morals and the new campus code. On this subject he says fhat tie has learned that, although a friendly draught in dulged in privacy is permissa ble, "getting pickled openly and flaunting an alcoholic -ego is de trbp." iM ; - ' And according to Sam there is also a .new chivalry towards the girls among the members of (Continued V on page four The following is the program which will be given by the Marine band here tomorrow. The performance will include two concerts, one in Kenan sta dium at 3:30, and another in the Tin Can at 8 :30.

(By H. J. (hlland) At 9:15 Monday night the first of the season's blazing social events flared up at the corner of- the Intramural , Ath letic field. Most of the best people from the surrounding dormitories were present to see the event. Following the city fire truck down Franklin street and past Spencer Hall, turning . at the corner, a long line of cars help ed the excitement along . f with horns and headlights. . The flames of the fire were easily visible beyond J Dormi tory, but, helpful as they al ways are, the crowd of students which was already assembled directed the fighters with whoomner veins of "Fire V Since it was too hot to stand within ten feet of the fire and half the field was illuminated, the assistance was hardly neces- sary. Apparently considering the fire as too small and unimport ant, for their full attention, the truck and most of the men re mained parked on the pavement. One vman, complete with blue uniform, hat, and pike, .. came down to look the fire over. His appearance was immediately hailed with- cheers and loud handclipping. He smiled pleas antly. ;.. : , - The usual enthusiasm at so cial : fires quickly 4ied down. After all, it was only ax rubbish dump which was ablaze, and there was no furniture' to be dramatically" and superfluously dragged out into the middle of the street, no jumps to be made from upper stories onto mat tresses below, and no . water to explode fountain-like and un expectedly from the middle - of the hoses. Nor was there a piano to be played while x the flames leaped about, as at the Pickard Hotel fire of a few years ago. In short, after the first five minutes, it was unex citing. Several students mut tered something about "Money back. . . ."and "Not what they used to be. . . ." It was too early in the even ing for the crowd to be properly attired for "fire-att en dinar . in pajamas, so that the proper background was missing. The pine trees lit with a yeow light against the dark blue of the skj' was interesting, but not excit- ing. Ana tnere was ram. , As a curtain-raiser for the Chapel Hill fire season, the recent affair was a disappoint ment. Chief Foister has promis ed bigger and better fires, more rescues, more opportunities for organized cheering, and more co eds at the fires which remain on the schedule. If these promises are carried out,, he may un doubtedly expect better gate re ceipts; and more co-operation of the; .type : which, i has always featured the proper kind of public fire in Chapel Hill.
