For Organization at Universi
ty; Scout Executive Seminar
Began Last Night.
f Having as its general purpose
the discussion of a continuance
of Boy Scout activities among
callege students, a meeting, to
which all former Scouts and
others are invited, will be held
in the University Y. M. C. A. on
Friday morning at 9 :30 o'clock.
The discussions will be led by C.
, D. Chadwick, regional scout ex
ecutive, who is here to Aartici-
, pate in the Scout Exec utive sem
inar that is beirlg conducted
here..' - ' . :
During; an interview with H.
' F. Gcp:ier, secretary of the Y.
M. C. A., who is in charge' of
i&e seminar program in the ab
sence of H. D. Meyer, member
of the regional - education com
mittee, Mr. Comer state the
reason for the meeting was an
effort "to continue a live con
tact with scouting on a college
; man's, level." s
In order to proinote this ac
tivity a fraternity for . former
scouts has been organized, Al
pha Phi Omega. This organiza
tion is in . most respect similar
to the professional fraternities
. which are common . on many
-.campuses . and which do not in
.any way conflict with the asso
ciations students may have con
tracted witli social fraternities.
The main objective in founding
Alpha Phi Omega, according to
Mr. Comer, was to keep alive
scout . interests in college life,
and to keep ex-scouts in work
which would berbeneficient to
them, and vice-versa.
The particular purpose of the
' meeting this , morning will , be
the organization of a chapter of
the fraternity in the University.
It is of interest to know that
since its inception ' the Alpha
. Phi Omegas have placed chap
ters in the following prominent
institutions : Layfayette College,

Not so very long ago a couple
of students went -hunting. The
.object of the hunt was deer, not
.dears, in any form. The total
bag apparently consisted of one
very flat tire all of which was
duly reported in these columns.
Students will be students, how
ever. Something was wrong
with their technique. And five
members of the" faculty there
upon went out during Thanks
giving and showed them how.
The five, R. E. Coker, W. C.

It had to be turkey, of course.

and1-fired, and there was a loud
report. But wait. There was
also a dead animal. For Mr.
Coker, being a zoologist, knows
his dead animals. In great ex
citement, the party ran to the
place where the turkey or turk
eys had fafien. The found a
deer. , a:
The 'deer was brought in to
Chapel Hill in triumphA It was
one of the largest and finest seen
in these parts in a long time.
But it wasn't a turkey. No mat
ter how .hard observers tried,
they couldn't make a turkey but
of it. It looked so different, to
say nothing of the taste. Never
theless, the party was voted a
success, both before and after.
The previous "hunting party
went out" after deer, and brought
home a flat' tire. The faculty
members, being more, versed in
hunting as in other branches ot
knowledge ; went out after turk
ey and came home with deer.
,The difference is subtle, but it
exists. Faculty members never
come back empty-handed. They
always catch something, or as

V Dr. Abernethy said that there
has been a remarkably small
amount, of sickness this year.
Injuries, too, have been few, and
the infirmary has, not at any
time been pressed.- : The physi
cian predicted, however, that the
coming cold weather would be
the cause of many colds, and he
urged -the men to consult him
on any indication of sickness.
He was particularly anxious to
impress them with the impor
tance of taking precautions
' Dr. Abernethy, said that the
staff at the,; infirmary wishes
to serve the student body in the
best possible manner. Although
a student may meet with little
hospitality if he is not really
sick, he is sure to receive a
great deal of sympathetic inter
est if he is, Dr. Abernethy prom
ised. As a last warning he de
clared that out of consideration
to one's self and-to one's fellow
students a dormitory is no place
to stay when sick.

Named John, was released from
the University of North' Caro

is even now going into its sec

of all books having to do with
the southern Negro, one of the
most delightful. - ; . - . :-'
Mr. Sale, a broad-shouldered
and affable giant, without af
