New York Papers
Playmakers
Three One-Act Plays TVell Re
ceived by Audience at Mc
Millan Theatre.
TELEGRAM LAUDS THEM
Says Spirit of Carolina Back
woods j Was Splendidly
Brought to Stage.
The Playmakers made a big
hit with New York theatre-goers
who watched their performance
last Saturday night at the Mc
Millan Academic theatre. All
the-New York critics praised
them. The New York Telegram
had the following to say about
their showing:
"The spirit of the Carolina
backwoods was brought to the
stage of the McMillan Academic
theatre Saturday night when the
Playmakers of the North Caro
lina produced three of their
sixty one-act plays. It's a spirit
that mirrors primitiveness, stu
pidity and stubbornness, a spirit
that is strong and weak at the
same time, a spirit, that craves
m no uncertain manner, but
merely craves the indefiniteness
of the word 'change.'
"Bringing their scenery, their
luggage, themselves, and their
Southern drawl in a bus all the
way from Chapel Hill, the Play
makers attempt to project hon
esty, not greatness. And their
attempt is met with' success be
cause of sincerity and energy
instead of histrionic ability.
Regarding themselves primarily
as thinkers and playwrights
rather than as actors, their ac
cent stress is always upon the
idea behind, the play.
"Selecting 'The No 'Count Boy'
by Paul Green ; 'Black Water' by
Loretto Carroll Bailey, and
'Magnolia's Man' by Gertrude
Wilson Coffin, as the program,
many sides of the famed spirit
were exemplified. In 'The No
'Count Boy' there is the day
dreaming propensity of the
youthful Negro strikingly con
trasted with the emptiness of 'his
material elders. In 'Black Water'
there is a longing to get-away-f
rom-it-all - fighting against the
drabness of the strikes and com
monplace marriages. In 'Mag
nolia's ' Man' there is pictured
the dearth of romance for a
romantic maid.
Each character presented has
reasons to be unhappy, has rea
sons to be inwardly fighting, and
it's pretty much the general odds
of life they fight against. But
in the careless backwoods there
is little or nothing to think of,
so obsessions are easily formed.
Altogether, the Carolina back
woods must be a dismal and sub
stantially depressing environ
ment. "The Playmakers, living and
going to school around those
people, have evolved American
folk plays that are unique and
distinctive. They have strength
and character, and with the in
evitable growth ofr the imagina
tinn nf nlffvwrierhts, a folk
play that might be comparable
to the greatest of our modern
plays, the Irish, may some day
be the result of this ambitious
and worthy group."
Graham in Warrenton
Professor Frank Graham of
the history department went to
Warrenton yesterday to deliver
the address a the unveiling of
the monument erected to the
Graham, the
great educator and founder of
the Graham school.

Whrtehead-Noell (V) were lead
ing Palmore-Baggs 7-5, 4-4. The

Tar Heel Picks
University
(By Crawford MacKethan)
This article may be consid
ered in the form of an answer
to a challenge handed out to me
a month ago by Mr; Charlie
Woollen, graduate manager of
athletics, as we sat chatting
about the great athletes of the
University of North Carolina.
However, the job of selecting an
All-Time University football
team is one that from habit falls
upon someone about every ten
years; therefore, , since such a
length of time has almost
elapsed the Daily Tar Heel of
fers to the student body and the
alumni the 1929 All-Time selec
tion. - - .
The following, results ware
obtained from a collection of
data sent in by a number of
alumni whom we believe have
watched football as it was played
during their college generation
and the following generations.
The men who have assisted us in
selecting this team are as fol
lows: George Stephens, Roy
Abernethy, "Runt" Lowe, Ste
phen Bragaw, "Pete" Murphy,
Edwin Gregory, Bill Blount,
"Nemo" Coleman, Dave Tayloe,
Dr. Lawson, Dr. Mangum, and
Dr. Verne Howell. Of this num
ber Dr. Lawson and Dr. Man-
gum were invaluable in offering
their opinions upon the men as
they have seen them since they
began following the team "away
back yonder."
The style of play has changed
greatly in the last ten or' twenty
years and the selection this year
will undoubtedly give evidence

to the fact that we were attempt
ing to choose men whom we be
lieve could have by natural abil
ity played the game under any
style and especially that of to
day. A number of great centers
have been nominated ; "Yank"
Tandyj '16, stands -out , among
this number because of his ver
satility. He was more than a
triple threat ; he would and did
kick placements and dropkicks
from the forty yard line. He
was a passer and could run with
the ball. "Tandy and Ramsay
were , the best men physically I
ever examined," says Dr. Law-
son, randy gets a place at tne
pivot position on our first team.
Bill Blount, '20, '21, '22, gets our
second vote. He was brainy,
and was one of the Carolina cen
ters to be used as a roving pivot.
Although frail, he was a fighter
both' on defense and offense.
Harry Schwartz, i "Mink" Cun
ningham, Herman Mclver, Pete
Murphy, Steward, and Council
all in their day stood out as pow
erful centers.
As guards two men have been
chosen who represent two en
tirely different ages and styles
of 'football: "Bear" Collier, '94,
'95, 96, and: Ray Farris, '27, '28
and '29. .Dr, Lawson makes the
following statement: "I have
experienced real joy following
the play of a number of guards
and Carolina has had her share
of good ones, but there is one
that , we all know, his play is
i flawless, his leadership fine. I

34th Game Between Old Rivals
Expected to Draw Largest
Crowd in History of Rivalry.
GAME CALLED 2 O'CLOCK
Virginians Will Have Full
Strength in Contest; Wyrick
, Magner and Farris Ready.
(by Will Y arbor ough)
"Before probably the largest
crowd ever to witness a football
game in North Carolina the foot
ball teams of the Universities of .
North Carolia and Virginia will
clash this afternoon at 2 o'clock
in Kenan Stadium for the thirty
fourth time.
Tradition dating back to the
introduction of football in the
South and hopes of Tar Heel sup
porters for a smashing victory
over the Cavaliers causes this
game to be the climax of the
Carolina schedule for North
Carolinians. Memories of long
years with repeated victories for
Virginians and the sting of over
whelming defeats administered
the Tar Heels by the Cavaliers
have whetted the appetites of
Carolina followers for a victory.
Coach Chuck Collins has de
veloped the most powerful team
ever produced at Chapel Hill.
With the greatest assortment of
backs in the South and a line
which yields little to any, Caro- -lina
has amassed a 32-point
average score for the eight
games played this season. Only
three teams have held the Tar
Heels below thirty points Geor
gia Tech, Georgia, and David
son. Wake Forest, Maryland,
V. P. I.,. State, and South Caro
lina fell before the rush of scor
ing. Virginia has suffered defeat
only twice this fall, V. P. I. and
V. I. turning back the Cava
liers 32-12 and 20-7 respectively.
Two tie games, however, with
Maryland and Washington and
Lee prevent an otherwise good
season. With the coming of
Coach Abell a new coaching sys
tem was installed. This coupled
with repeated injuries to stars
has made the road rough for the
Virginians. But today marks
the last appearance of the 1929
Cavalier eleven. As with North
Carolinians the Thanksgiving
contest marks the climax of the
season with Virginians. One
supreme effort is made to topple
the Tar Heels before the players
turn in their uniforms.
Starting line-ups for the teams
will find two powerful lines and
speedy backf ields opposing each
other. The average weights of
the teams are about the same.
Coach Abell plans to start Tur
ner and Byrd on the flanks, Day
and Williams at the tackles, De
Butts and Lankford at guard,
and Taylor at center with Cap
tain Sloan, Kaminer, Thomas
and Faulconer in the backfield.
Opposing these will be Fenner
and Holt, ends, Koenig and Ad
kins, tackles, Farris and Fysal,
guards, and r Lipscomb, center
with Branch, Nash, Ward and
Spaulding in the backf ield.-
The backf ields indicate air at
