Jack Crawford Will Play;
Rumored That He Will Go To
"WW 1- W -
Hollywood
Comedies.
For Series of
Jack Crawford's orchestra
which is to play for the German
club Thanksgiving dances No
vember 29 and 30 is to play for
photoplay comedies according to
rumors. Elaborate plans are
being made by the German club
officials for these dances. Lead
ers for the dances were elected
by the club two weeks ago and
plans are practically completed
for the dances. The set will be
held in Swain nail this year.
Five dances are to be given, two
Friday and three Saturday.
It is said that Crawford,
director of his orchestra, will be
come the next funny fat man of
the movies. -
Photoplay managers who have
seen" the comedy antics and
humorous grimaces with which
Crawford delights his dance
audiences are trying to get the
big fellow to sign Up for a series
of two reel comedies. After
playing here the comedian may
go to Hollywood for his first
picture. v
Jack Crawford's orchestra is
one of the crack dance bands of
the Music Corporation of Amer
ica, and its phenomenal success
in the past year has been due
to the original and mirth-pr6
' voking stunts of its leader.
Crawford is known as the
""Clown Prince of Jazz." More
over, he is an excellent saxo
phonist, as well as a versatile
entertainer.
Everywhere the Clown Prince
has appeared from Atlantic City
to California, amusement man
agers have been besieged with
thousands 'of requests to have
Jack Crawford back fora re
turn engagement.
Dancers like Crawford be
cause he is really funny, and
moyie audiences will enjoy him
for " the same reason. His
grotesque expressions range
through every detail of comic
and pathetic expression.

Local And Class Representatives
To Confer With Council To
Make Plans For Campaign.
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."

recently sent to alumni.
The council of the alumni fund
has been busily engaged in this
work for months now, and dur

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

(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.
