One of the most outrageous
pieces of cowardice and barbarism
ever committed by men caliiLg
themselves students of the Univ
ersity and citizens of a decent
community took place last Friday
night. The facts are as follows:
The Sophomore class had a ban
quet. After the banquet the
members of the class came up on
the campus singing, giving blood
curdling yells, shooting guns, and
having a boisteaous and rowdy
but good time in general. After
about an hour of this noisy but
otherwise innocent fun, some
sneaking coward, who by himself
wouldn't face an indignant mos
quito, suggested that the crowd go
to Pickard's Cottage where he
knew four freshmen were sleeping.
The crowd went, the freshmen were
ordered out on the street to pre
form for the pleasure of the crowd.
They refused. Not one of them
had a gun of any description, but
they slipped bed slats out, stood
by the door and windows, and inv
ited the sophomores in. The soph
omores refused. Instead. they stood
out . on the sidewalk and street
and threw rocks, brick-bats, and
missies of every other description
at the windows. They broke the
window blinds, tore the sash to
pieces, and scattered glass all
over the room. Not only did
they do this, but these brave
men, these noble students, shot
five or six times into that dark
room in which they knew four
It makes one shudder to think
what might have happened in
that room; to think of the horror,
the despair that might have come
to students; to think of the gloom
and dishonor that might have
come to the University. The
man who led the crowd down
there and the men who did the
shooting are cowards, they are
not men, they're things. The
only fit place for them is the
criminally insane ward at the
For this villiany the Sopho
more class as a whole stands re
sponsible. To charge the whole
class with the work of a part
may seem unjust, but it is not.
As long as the class, as long as
any member of the class, allows
such outlaws to be a part of the
class, the class must answer for
their deeds. The public senti
ment of the college, the public
sentiment of the class, condemns
these outlaw in the harshest
terms. The time has come to
put public sentiment into public
action. The name of the class
has been besmirched, the honor
of Carolina has been sullied. Now
is the time for quick, drastic
The final . preliminary contest
for the intercollegiate debaters to
represen t Wa nderbiltin'th e Pe n -tangularjdebatejwasjheld
dayevening at 8 o'clock, in Dean
Tillet's lecture room at Wesley

Ga. The debaters chosen were

H. H. Jones, Fisher Middleton.
H. L. McGothlin, W. H. Morgan.
The names are given in alpha
betical order, the iudges witli-
lding which four of the above
six men will ; be the principal
speakers. The principals and
alternates will be chosen later
after further work on the ques
tion. The object of this, as
stated by Dr. Harris, is to keep
the two alternates in close touch
with the question and fit them at
a moment's notice to fill the place
of a first speaker.
Messrs. David and Jones were
from the Philosophic Literary
Society, Messrs. Hay, Morgan
and Middleton were from the
Dialectic Literary Society, and
Mr. McGothlin was from th&

150 Students EnroDedj
For Mission Stndy
After an address on missions by
Bishop Strange on Monday night
March 4th in Gerrard Hall, one
hundred and fifty students signed
for the Mission Study courses
offered by the Young Men's
Christian Association. The fol
lowing courses are being offered
by the association: "The Prob
lems of the City," "The Negro
Life in the South," and "The
Decisive Hour of Christian Mis
sions." The "Problems of the City"
will be a lecture course conducted
by Prof. Patterson, which will
meet in Gerrard Hall every
Wednesday night at 7 :45, begin
ning with the coming Wednes
day night, and will last for one
half hour. In this course Prof.
Patterson will deal with such
questions as the population
crime, sanitation, politics, educa
tion and religion of our modern
cities, in a thought provoking
: The study of the 'negro ques
tion will be done in small groups
led by students. The purpose of
this course will be to call atten
tion to this problem, which is
distinctly the Southern man's
problem, and to find out some of
the real conditions existing among
the negro race in the South.
All classes in this course will
meet on Sundays at 12:30.
Dr. Mott's book, The Decisive
Hour of Christian Missions, will
be the text used lor a third
course. The group system will
also be followed in this "course
and the groups will meet on Sun
days at 12:30. The problems of
the governments of the East, the
social conditions, the impact of
western civilization upon the
East, the educational and re
ligious awakenings of China, j
Japitu, India etc., a well as the
pressing needs of the man across
the seas, and our opportunities
and obligations to help him, are
topics Dr. Mott ably discusses in
Any student who is interested
in any of these courses and who
has not yet signed up for one
may see Mr. Hall at the Y. M. C.
A., who will gladly explain the
courses more fully.
