Season a Success Says Eagle Mentor Coach Young Believes Results Were Due to Teamwork That the basketball season just closed was a success , is the opinion of Coach Walter H . Young , who looks not only on the accomplishments of this year s team—Q victories against 7 defeats—but considers also the development of men who will be available during the next two or three years as an important factor .

Next year I hope to carry about 15 As to prospects for the 1930-31 season , the coach said that all eight of the regular squad—Olsen , Targee , Colison , Woods , Sells , Washburn , Fuch...

Good News Dance Is Outstanding Hit John Houston Heads Junior Committee of Novel Affair Good News is welcome to me warbled the Carolinians , and this seemed , indeed , to be the feeling of all the A . U .-ites who turned out last Saturday night when the junior class was host to the College at the Good News dance . The gym presented a veritable garden—if one could so term such a display —of hundreds of newspapers which had been suspended from above to create a false ceiling . Additional drapes of recent publications covered the walls . These constituted the sole form of decoration except for the words , good news , emblemized upon the stage curtain . In reply to the warning that any dancer appearing in a tux would be ostracized , the gang turned out in true collegiate style . Sweaters and knickers were the popular form of dress among the masculine element , while the femmes seemed to have ransacked their trunks for last summer s sport clothes .

College was likened to the quiet moment before the attack—the moment in which it would be well for students to build up strength and wisdom , for the &gt; crisis that is certain to come in later years .
