TALKS TO STUDENTS
Speaker’s Lecture Is Based on
Theme of “The Glorious
Mr. Halliburton Typifies the Spirit of
Eternal Youth and Radiates the
Essence of Animated Life
Richard Halliburton, typifying the
spirit of eternal youth, and radiating
the very essence of vital, animated
life, last Monday night recounted to an
eager audience which packed the N. C.
C. W. auditorium, something of his ex-
peiences as he danced down “the I’oyal
road to romance,” lured on by one
“glorious adventure” after another.
Mr. Hallibuton is well known as the
author of two popular works, “The
Royal Road to Romance” and “The
Glorious Adventure,” as well as for
his ability as a lecturer. He is the
most outstanding poetic romanticist of
the present era.
The subject of his lecture Monday
night was “The Glorious Adventure.’
He told in his informal way the out
standing incidents of his excursion
just after his graduation from Prince
ton, when, sometimes alone, sometimes
with a companion^ he beat his way
around the world.
“We all have dreams,” Mr. Hallibur
ton said. “I had three: to climb the
Matleham; to run the original Mara
thon and swim the I-Iellespont. All of
these I did in my own way.”
In India he visited the sacred ruins
of the ancient capitol of the Hindus
wdiere, for months, a million Moham
medans battled that their emperor
might possess a fabulously beautiful
Hindu pincess. The young romanticist
spent one glorious night in the Taj
Mahal, fought his way across the Ma
lay peninsula, ventured into little
known ports of Tibet, and languidly
floated for days on a house boat.
To climax his romping adventure
Halliburton climbed Fujiyama, the
sacred mountain of Japan, in the dead
of winter, a thing no man had ever
Thus does the saga of this young
man race on to its thrilling finish, and
thus did he recount it Monday night.
