TARHEELS WIN "
OVER DURHAM Y
IN HARD GAME
Contest Closes With Score 28-27;
Former Carolina Stars On
Durham Team.
Carolina defeated the Durham
Y. M. C. A. here last night in
a fast, hard-fought game. The
final score was 23-27, Devin
missing a free throw-that would
have tied the score on the last
play of the game.
Both teams started slowly.
After four minutes of play Har
per got a crip. Carolina was
never headed after that, al
though the Y twice pulled into
a tie in the early minutes of
the game. Near the end of the
Half Carolina had an -eight-point
lead, but Durham rallied and
reduced it to two. Hutchison
shot a goal as the . half ended,
making the score 14-10.
Carolina opened the half with
a rush that threatened to turn
the game into a walkaway,
Brown getting three goals and
Cleland two, while Hackney was
getting Durham's lone point on
a foul. With the score 24-11
Durham staged a rally that put
them one point behind the Tar
Heels. Hutchison got a two
pointer, but O'Neal threw an
other to make it 26-25. Hutchi
son scored again and Devin fol
lowed with a goal to bring the
score to 28-27. The game ended
as a foul was called on Harper.
Devin missed , the throw that
would have1 tied the score.
Rufus Hackney, former Caro
lina star, shared honors .with
O'Neal for the visitors. Hack
ney was the high point man for
the game with 11 points. He
was followed by O'Neal with
ten. The team, was captained
by Billy, Pevin, another former
Carolina star. Cleland led the
Carolina scoring with . seven
points. ..

One Year Ago Today University
Was Closed Due To Flu Scare
(By Browning Roach)
"Hello, this the infirmary?
Well, listen, we have five cases
of flu here afC dormitory. Can
you take'care of them?"
"We have only two or three
cots left, but bring them around
and we'll make arrangements
somehow."
The time' was a year ago yes
terday, December 13. -The char
acters were : first, and most im
portant, three undergraduates,
a junior, a senior and a fresh
man; and second, , an attendant
at the infirmary. Another tele
phone call at the infirmary. The
attendant picked up the receiver.
"Hello," came the words over the
line, "this is so-and-so speaking
at J dorm. We have four or five
cases of flu here and want you
to prepare to receive them in a
few minutes."
"I don't know how we'll take
care of them, but bring them
around anyway. We'll do the
best we can."
In a fewv moments another
phone call,' and still another.
This must be a serious epidemic,

Classes of the winter 'quar
ter will begin on Friday, Jan
uary 3rd. There will be 30
days of probation for each

The hour has not been given,
but, according to Dr. Boggs, it
may be in the afternoon.
The course will define the
various types of folk literature

CHAPEL HILL SCHOOL TO
ENTERTAIN WITH CIRCUS
A school circus is being given
at the high-school, building at
7:30 this evening. The main
event will take place in the audi
torium, after which there will
be a series of side shows in the
rooms above.
As a preliminary to the circus,
a parade, starting , from the
school building at 4:30, will pass
down Franklin street and
through the campus.
Admission to the main show
will be 15 cents, and to the side
shows 5 cents. . Sandwiches,
cakes,: lemonade and candy will
be sold.. Proceeds will go to -the
high school annual.
Gerrard Hall Closed
Gerrard hall was closed yes
terday until after the Christ
mas holidays, so that repairs
may be made to its roof.
thought the infirmary attendant.
We'll have to let Dr. Chase know
that the situation is growing
worse. -
And those of you who were
here last year will recall that
at 2 o'clock Wednesday after
noon, December 13, the hastily-got-tpgether
University commit
tee called it a holiday ana dis
missed classes almost a full week
early to forestall the advance of
the influenza epidemic. Now,
whether or not these entirely in
nocent telephone calls had any
thing to do with the final deci
sion of the committee is a mat
ter of mere speculation, and
we'll let it rest at that.
And look at us this year
everybody on the campus as
healthy and hearty as can be,
no flu, no pneumonia, no nothing
(I believe there are a couple of
chaps Henry London and C. G.
Stafford confined to the in
firmary with colds, however.)
Guess we'll all just have to stay
here until next week and face
exams. No three weeks' holi
days this year. -

School of Education To Have
New Auditorium, More Class
rooms and Improved Offices.
Plans which have been an
nounced concerning the remod
eling of Peabody building -provide
for a large auditorium,
more classroom space and a
much , improved arrangement of
offices for. the' administrative
force arid the professors in. the
school of education.
The legislature made appro
priations last year for a new
wing to be added to Peabody,
but owing , to lack of available
funds, .the trustees' building
committee decided instead, to
enlarge the basement and to
make an entirely new layout for
the first and second floors. The
University is following the same
policy with Peabody that it fol
lowed in reconstructing the in
terior of South building, New
West, Old West, Old East and
New East. The alterations will
take place only on the interior.
The inside will be remodeled en
tirely, while the outside will re
main unchanged.
While the work is going on in
Peabody, the University school
of education will be quartered
temporarily Jn the old library
building, which is in the process
of being converted into, a home
for -the. music department. The
construction , of the auditorium
at the rear of the library, where
the pipe I'organirtcT be installed,
will be able to proceed without
interfering with the activities of
the school of education in the
main building. The reconstruc
tion of Peabody is expected to
be completed soon after the
Christmas holidays, or during
the winter quarter at the latest.
Abernethy Will Return
To Chapel Hill Today
Dr. Eric A. Abernethy, uni
versity physician, who is under

Quarter's Chapel Over
There will be no further chap
el exercises this quarter. Ger
rarjj hay has been closed for
certain repairs to the interior
which will not be completed be
fore the close of the Christmas
holidays. .
A Correction
In the news story appear
ing in yesterday's Tar Heel
the following statement ap
peared under the heading,
Tuberculosis Seal Sale Con
ducted By Community Club':
"The patients who are the
greatest menace to the stu
dents in the community are
among the servants attached
to various, food dispensing
units here.' This statement
is misleading. Sirs . Otto
Stuhlman, , chairman of the
local committee, states that
there are no tubercular pa
tients connected with the var
ious food dispensing units
here.
Baptist Church Will
Give Pageant Sunday
. Sunday night; December 15,
the Baptist church will present
a Christmas pageant entitled
"Bethlehem." Oriental costumes
will be worn by the cast, and the
scenery and stage effects are to
be very picturesque according
to the committee in charge.
Some forty persons will take
part in the pageant. It will be
held in the main auditorium of
the Baptist church Sunday night
at 8:30 P.M. '
Home Gets Trees
W. B. Sanders of the "Univer
sity department of sociology has
announced the gift of 75 fruit
trees and 25 grapevines as a
Thanksgivmg..gif t from Paul C.
Lindley, president of the Lind
ley nurseries of Greensboro, to
the state home and industrial
school for delinquent Negro
girls.
The school, located near
Efland in Orange county, was
founded by the state federation
of Negro Women's Clubs. For
the past few years this organ
ization has made numerous ef
forts to have the institution
taken over by the state, but so
far they have succeeded only in
getting a small annual appro
priation for this purpose. Con
sequently the equipment of the
school is inadequate.
Much Comment Caused Here
News Of Collins' Offer
From Georgetown University
(By Browning Roach)
With the publication of ar
ticles in the Washington Times
and the News and Observer con
cerning Coach Chuck Collins'
offer from Georgetown, rumors
have arisen and discussions have
sprung up as to the possibility
or probability of any immediate
action being taken by the Caro
lina coach. His contract here
at the University still has a year
to run.-'..
Coming to Carolina after one
year's coaching experience and
building up the football team to
its present standard, Coach Col
lins has earned the confidence
and esteem of everyone con
nected with Carolina.
It is pessible that the salary
question will come to bear on the
situation. It would take a con
siderably larger sum than he is
now receiving ; to lure Collins
away from the Hill. The coach
ing situation here, as things now
stand would present' s more at
tractive proposition than that at
Georgetown! The eastern uni
versity will be handicapped next
season by a noticeable lack of
material, while very few x men
will be lost from the varsity
squad for Carolina.

Loan Fund By Students
Sociology 11 Will
Be Offered Winter
And Spring Terms
Dr. E. R. Groves, professor of
sociology, will offer his course
Sociology 11, "Marriage and the
Family," in both the winter and
the spring quarters this year.
The course has heretofore been
offered only in the final quarter
of the year.
Sociology 11, which is open
only to male senior students,
will take up a study of the fam
ily, parent-child relationships,
wife - husband relationships,
problems of the home and the
like. This is the third year
which the course has been given.
A number of colleges and uni
versities over the country have
realized the need for courses
dealing with the family and
marriage problems and have re
cently instituted them.
Dr. Groves is an authority on
the subject and has written a
number of books dealing with
marriage and the family. The
course is offered next quarter at
the 12 o'clock hour. '.
Upperclassmen To
Register Next Week
The Registrar's offices an
nounce that all upperclassmen,
(juniors and seniors), and
students in the professional
schools will register during
the examination period, De
cember 18-21.
. Students in the. college of
liberal arts will register in the
offices of the department in
which they are majoring; all
others will register with their
deans.
No registration will be ac
cepted by the Registrar's of
fice unless all courses needing
assignments to classes are
properly validated and all
outstanding fees at the busi
ness office and library have
been paid.
First and second year stu
dents will register January 2.
It will take 'some skillful
coaching to build a strong team
for Georgetown next year, while
here Collins would have only to
continue with the work already
well started. The inauguration
of a new system of coaching is
quite- a task and ordinarily re
quires several seasons to pro
duce favorable results.' The re
sults of Collins' work here are
just coming to light, and the
recognition due him is now be
ing accorded.- He would have to
begin again at Georgetown the
job of building up a team, just
as he did at Carolina four years
ago. When he came to Caro
lina Collins faced the problem
not only of building up a team
worthy of note but of acquiring
a reputation also. National
recognition has descended upon
the young Notre Dame coach
and the team he has engineered
through a prosperous season.
Since the entire football coach
ing staff, as well as the grad
uate manager, are out of town,
reports of the Georgetown of
fer have yet to be verified, and
Collins' attitude has yet to be
ascertained.

NUMBER 11
Dean of Students Says No One
Should Give Up School Be
cause of Monetary Reasons.
Dean Francis . F. Bradshaw
issued an invitation yesterday
afternoon to those students who
feel doubtful about returning to
school next quarter because of
financial difficulties to make use
of the student loan fund.
Although the fund is not suf
fering from an over abundance
of wealth, there is enough money
at its disposal to enable every
student who needs the money
for his continuation at school to
obtain it.
The dean of students, who had
originally intended to bring this
before the students in chapel
exercfses Monday and Tuesday,
but who is prevented from so
doing by the repair work on
Gerrard hall, stressed the fact
that no student need give up his
education because of lack of
funds.
Anyone who has been consid
ering giving up school for mone
tary reasons should make an ap
pointment with the student loan
fund officials before the Christ
mas holidays. Room 205 South
building is. the office of the dean
of . students and loans will be
granted through that office.
Engineers Complete
Culvert Pipe Test
The school rofengineering in
cooperation with the state high
way commission has recently
completed a study of the be
havior of a new type of culvert
pipe under an earth fill 44 feet
high. The fill is one being made
during the construction of the
re-located route of highway
No. 60 between North Wilkes
boro and Boone.
During the field tests of this
pipe, which is made of cast iron
with spiral corrugations, obser
vations were made and accurate
deflections were taken at a point
inside the 30-inch barrel verti
cally under the center of the
roadway.
The re-location -of highway
No; 60 is considered little short
themasterpiece of highway con
struction in this state. Many
extremely heavy cuts and fills
have been made and at one point,
to avoid , a very heavy and ex
pensive fill, a concrete bridge 105
feet above the stream bed will
be built.
H. A. Schmitt made the field
observations as the representa?
tive of the school of engineering
and was on the work during the
entire time of construction.
This new type of pipe is the
same as that on which labora
tory tests were made at the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech
nology, which were observed by
Dean Braune ; of the school of
engineering. . , V
