G THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1929 NUMBER GO 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.

Rival Captains :4 Captain Farris and Captain Sloan are two of the most out standing men on the Southern grid this year. Ray Farris is a triple threat guard, and the Cavalier leader is a triple threat field general. . 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 Carolina-Virginia Statistics North No. Player Pos. 73 Eskew E.G.

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.

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 tacks Captain Sloan is one of (Continued ion page three) Student Notice All students working at Kenan stadium today as ushers, ticket snatch ers, etc, are requested to be at gate 2 at 12 o'clock.
