Dr. Edgar W. Knight was the speak
er at the Open Forum Tuesday night,
Noa-ember 2. His talk was on the
schools of Denmark. The speaker was
introduced by Chairman C. A. Hines.
Dr. Knight first stressed Danish
teachers and their excellence. “One
of the most important lessons in edu
cation which North Carolina can learn
from Denmark is in the training of
teachers. Denmark demands that
teachers possess adequate preparation
and training. This demand grows out
of Danish respect for thoroughness and
excellence, and this respect is the re
sult of a thorough and effective sustem
of education. Teachers are carefully
selected, properly trained, well reward
ed, and pensioned by the state,” said
“Education is the master builder in
Denmark, Avhere democracy seems also
to have been made a reality. Good
schools for all the people have been the
rule for generations. They have prac
tically wiped out illiteracy. They pre
fer the pressure of just taxation, how
ever heavy, to any load of ignorance,
however light, and the dangers that al
ways stalk in its step.”
Denmark is one-third the size of
North Carolina. Last year, $500,000,-
000 Avas put in libraries exception the
royal library and the library of the
UniA^ersity of Copenhagen. I^our cents
per inhabitant was the amount spent
by North Carolina.
The asking of questions by those
present brought on further discussion.
Dr. A. P. Kephart announced that
Bruce Bliven will be the next Open
Forum speaker. The subject of his
talk is “Debunking Politics.”
DEBATING CLUB HAS ITS
TWO OCT. MEETINGS
A valuable addition to the Rogue’s
Gallery of the Senior classes was made
the evening the 29th near nine o’clock
when James Clements, notorious rascal,
was dragged before the camera to have
his “mng mapped.”
Clements stimggled savagely to es
cape, but, secure in the arms of four
husky blnecoats, he was compelled to
submit. The camera creaked from the
severe strain, it is said, but being a spe
cial type, guaranteed to photograph all
faces, it did not break. This is the first
time Clement's photograph has ever
been obtained, due to the comparative
weakness of the old style cameras; and
the police are jubilant over their suc
Clements was captured at the Greens-
boro-Spencer football game by that in
trepid arm of the law, Carlton E.
Wilder. The master rogue submitted
to the great detective without a strug
gle. Mr. Wilder immediately turned
hi mover to the city police. He was
wearing a heavy grou-th of whiskers
when captured; but was speedily
rushed to the nearest barber shop
wliere two barbers with the aid of
plenty of soap and a cross-cut saw soon
got rid of the facial scenery. When
the darking crook saw that the inten
tion of his captors was to photograph
him, he made a last desperate try for
freedom, but a flying tackle of the
whole force saved another victim for
the electric chair.
The police are making a determined
attempt to clear iij) the crime wave
wliich is sweeping the city and are de
termined to have pictures of every
criminal. Friday night’s haul yielded,
besides Clements, two other notorious
members of the underworld—Baxter
Bason and “Chuck” Burgess. The
force is now scouring the city for Paul
Wimhish, whose desperate deeds have
long terrorized all law-abiding citizens.
The chief in a statement Saturday de
clared that lie was confident that by
Monday the net would be completely
drawn around the famous criminals.
‘Six-Year Presidential Term” Subject
For Debate October 29.
A bill—“Resolved; That the Presi
dent of the United States should be
given a six-year term with no re-elec
tion,” was presented at the meeting of
the Debating Club October 29. The
member who presented the bill stated
that he felt that four years was too
short a time, while eight years was too
lengthy a period, but that six appeared
to him to be a happy medium.
There was considerable discussion
pro and con, after which the club voted
against the bill by a large majority.
The members voted to ade •"
amendments presented aK.P
meeting. The firsturc- pre\ions
for a student .ir these provided

the club should abide by Robert’s Rules
A debate on the query, “Resolved:
That.the child labor amendment to the
Federal Constitution should be ratified
by the states,” as contained in the
program for the meeting of October 22.
Minnie Herman and Elenry Weiland
contended the affirmative side of the
question while Elizabth Boyst and
Louis Brooks upheld the negative.
The decision was two-to-one in
favor of the negative.
P.T.A. CHILDREN ATTEND
GIRLS’ COUNCIL NURSERY
Several Mothers Avail Themselves of
Opportunity to Attend Meeting
The Girl’s Administrative Council,
as an aid to the parents, established a
nursery beginning with the meeting
of the Parent-Teacher Association
■Wednesday, November 3. Two girls
from the council remain at each meet
ing to care tor the children. This is
being done so that those mothers who
cannot attend the meetings because of
their small children may bring them
along and feel sure of their safety.
The girls on duty Wednesday, Noveiin

It is a curious fact that people ignore
the beauty and interest of things

effort to see attractions which a dis

and which are in many instances of no
greater merit than their own.—Manual

ROBERT MILES GIVES
TALK ON LOYALTY TO
STUDENTS IN CHAPEL
Discusses Five Phases: Loyalty
to Name, Country, School,
Church and God
HIS VIEWS ARE TIMELY
Encourages Pupils to Bring to Their
Country That Which Is Pure,
Good and Wholesome
“ ‘This is my commandment that ye
love one another, as I have loved you.
(greater love hath no man than this,
that he lay down his life for . his
friends.’ This has been the message
of Jesus down through the ages. His
challenge to us is to be loyal,” said
Mr. Robert Miles, college secretary of
the Southern Presbyterian Church, at
chapel Monday and Tuesday, October
25 and 20. “Loyalty is a subject much
discussed in colleges and schools. If
we have not loyalty we might just as
well pass out now,” continued Mr.
“There are five phases of loyalty.
There is loyalty to onr name, our coun
try, our school, onr church, and loyalty
to God. We carry a name through life
and what we do refiects on those who
gave us our name. Certainly, loyalty
to our country is a trait anyone is
proud of. Strive to bring to our coun
try that which is pure, good, and whole
“Every school thinks it is the best.
If yon do not try to make it the best
school the thing for you to do is to
get out. So>ietimes in the striving for
knowledge we get it dishonestly. You
are not hurting anybody but your school
and yourself when you cheat,” said Mr.
“Are you loyal to God your Father?
I think that in this school you have
the ardent desire to be loyal to God.
I hope that yon may ne^’er do anything
to lower the standard of your school.”
This was the message that Mr. Miles
left with the student body.
J. D. McNairy gave a brief synopsis
of the three plays given October 28
by the public speaking department.
