OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 1912
MON FOR MARCH
Preached Last Sunday Night
in Gerrard Hall by Bishop
SNCW STORM KEEPS BUT FEW AWAY
The Sermon Exposition of the Fact
That the True Strong Man is the
True Christian, and That Every One
Can Become Such Thru' Christ
The University sermon for
March was preached in Gerrard
Hall last Sunday night by the
Rt. Rev. Robert Strange, Protes
tant Episcopal Bishop of the
Eastern Diocese of North Caro
lina, Despite the cold and the
blinding1 snow-storm almost the
whole of the lower floor of the
Chapel was filled with students
and a few members of the faculty
who, regardless of inclement
weather, always come to hear
the earnest and popular Bishop
preach. The Bishop's sermon,
delivered with all the calm force
and power which earnestness and
sincerity gives, well repaid those
who braved the storm to hear it.
Hie lesson ot the evening's
services, taken from the sixth
chapter of fcaint Paul's Epistle
( the Ephesians, was read by
Rev. Homer W. Starr. Bishop
Strange then announced 'his text
from I. Corinthians, 16:13,
"Quit ye like men, be strong";
and from Phippians, 4:13, "lean
do all things through Christ
which strengthened me." The
purpose of his sermon, the Bishop
said, was to show that the true
strong man is the true Christian
man, and that every one who
wills can be such through Christ.
This he did by showing what
qualities constitute strength,
what attributes go to make he
The sermon was full of stimu
lating examples that illustrated
how strong men in the days of
old forced the crisis of life. The
key note of the talk was struck
at the beginning when in simple,
told of the calm fortitude and
courage with which Polycarp,
the disciple of John, faced death
at the -stake before the mob in
the amphitheater at Smyrna.
"Our religion," said Bishop
Strange, "is a message of God to
man, yet practically it is a mes
sage of man to man. The twelve
apcstles were men who spoke the
highest religion, and lived it in
their lives. They were men who
could stand before magesties and
say: 'We stand for God;' who
could suffer toils, degredations,
deaths. It takes a man to re
ceive new truth and welcome it
regardless of scorn and tortures
inflicted by former friends. It
took a man to guide the young
church, to stand before judges
and kings and speak the truth, to
smile on the sword and welcome
death. 'Behold the man', said
Pilate, as he pointed to the calm
Jesus facing the mob who sought
his death. To-day we confirm
his judgment JcsusChrist stands

politics, State politics, National
politibs. This is the year of the
scholar in politics from Wood
row Wilson on up to our distin
guished member of the House

A political club, wh6se member
ship in its complexity embraces
every shade of 'political thought,
has been formed for the purpose
of giving a better and fuller dis
cussion to the politios of the day.
In order to get some definite idea
as to the trend of the political
thought here The Tar Heel

ballot on next Thursday for Presi
dent of the United States.
Every student in the Universi

allowed to vote. The candidates
to be voted on are for the Repub
licans: Taft, Roosevelt, and La
Follette; for the Democrats:
Wilson Harmon, Clark, and Un
derwood; Socialists, Eugene
Debs. There will be no suffra

voter, if he wishes, may make a
first and second choice. This is
done in order to find out how
many men would change their
votes if Roosevelt, for instance,

Class athletics are coming to
the front now in the minds of the
large number of students who
are not quite Varsity material
but who still take interest in
athletics. The class track teams
have already started to .work and
the men are out on the cinders
every afternoon getting into
shape. The only thing that re
mains to be done now before the
class baseball league starts up. its
mill of errors and home-runs is
for Coach Clancy to tin can the
class material that is now on the
Varsity field. As soon as he
does this, amid playing balls and
jubilant shouts we shall all be on
the broad road to the first Fresh
It is now too early to give a
forecast of the strength of the
different teams during the coming
gruelling season, but the support
ers of each team claim that they
have all the prospects of putting
out a , winning team and captur
ing the cup. The freshmen, es
pecially, seem confident of victory.
It is rumored that their manager,
Mr. Austin Carr, has recently
given out an interview in which
he stated that the horizon of
their prospects is even now
suffused with a roseate glow.
Manager Carr also avows his in
tention of making- the Season one

recent years in a financial way.

The Athletic Council is in
great and pressing need of the
money recently subscribed towards
$5C0 which the students are rais
ing for the salaries of coaches.
At the beginning of the baseball
season eighty four cents was in
the treasury of the Athletic As
sociation. About $425 has been
subscribed. It will be a great
deal of trouble and labor to see
all the men who have pledged
themselves to give this sum.
Studentsare, therefore, asked and
urged to see immediately John
II. Manning, Raymond Lee,
Frank Barker, Will Tillett,
Fields Euless, Lenior Chambers,
or L. N. Morgan and pay to any
of them their subscriptions.
William Allen White has ap
peared during February in three

ball season at Columbia las: year
amounted to over $4,000.
