Hadley of Ynle University delivered lust Friday niht the I rst of the sc ries of Nb'Nair lectures which he consented to deliver this year. The general subject of Dr. Hart leys lecture was "Some Tenden cies of Modern Ph i 1 o so p h i c Thought". The subject of the first lecture delivered F r i d a y night was ''Changed Conceptions of Science". The first lecture was a clear, concise, highly intel lectual review of the modern ten dencies in scientific thought.' The distinguished speaker was introduced by President Veoable who welcomed him to ! lie Univer sity. Dr. Hadley expressed his pleasure in coming to the Uni versity, and took up first the un changed conception of science. "Kvcry man" he said, "must have a philosophy which it is necessary for. himself to work ou and which is a dominant influence in his life. "What we have in herited from our fathers', Goethe says, "we must work out for our selves before we can call it our own'. The working out of that which our forefathers have dis covered is the most distinctive feature of a college student's work. The . nineteenth century has witnessed many changes in philosophy. In my college days interest centered around Herbert Spencer and his views. The mode of thought that he repre sented has come and gone. "In the eighteenth century in dividuality was do mi na n t in Europe, great personalities such as Voltaire, Frederick of Prussia, Rousseau, and Napoleon were the product of that time. There was unrest in the eighteenth century and with these great individuals the French Revolution came. In the early nineteenth century there was more intellectual complacency and also few great individuals, hut more personal freedom. There was so much complacency that electricitj which Franklin de nominated positive was allowed to go by that name though it is essentially negative. "Three great discoveries have been the center of scientific thought during the past century. These are the laws of couserva- STA Cont.1 " t"ft i VIRGINIA TAKES FOURTH Evens Up Accounts in Series by Beating Carolfeiat 4 to 0 Charlottesville, Va..

Fitchett running for Douglas came home on Neil's drive to left. In the fifth and sixth innings Carolina threatened to score but perfect fieldinyr prevented. Lee was lett on third base in the eighth when Rixey fanned Hanes Carolina's infield worked with much precision. Bailey's work at second being especially clever. Hanes made a beautiful catch of Rixay's long foul in the seventh. Danville extended the teams an invitation to play the rubber game ih that city. VIRGINIA. AB. It.

MEET AT KALEI6H SATURDAY COBURN PLAYERS MONDAY "Twelfth Night" in the After- noon, "Macbeth" at Night The Coburn Plaers, who through their simple, siucere and thoroughly artisti perform ances of Shakespearian, and other classic plays, have made themselves noted through the length and breadth ofj the land will present "Twelfth night" and "Macbeth" on the campus Mon day, April 29'h. 1 With the Coburns "the play's the thing" in reality, and scorn ing the limitations imposed by the theatre, they give all their productions out of doors where th.e scenic artist is Nature herself, whre the "drops" are trees that really grow, the arras,' a c t u a 1 shrubbery, and the stage, the grass. The plays that this com pany presents are not those which depend for effect upon t tricks of lighting, or elaborate stage pic tures, and, indeed, it is when these are absent, and one may lose oneself in the charm of the poetic thought of a Shakespear ian comedy, for instance, that its appeal is felt most potently. It is not hard to imagine that one is in the Forest of Arden when Or lando may attach his love missives to the living trees, and Rosalind approach one, . not .frc. . some where "up stage" but through the snapping bushes. And, in such circumstances, it is not dtfi- cult to translate oneself and to be veritably of the merry company in the courtyard of Illyria with Sir Tobey, Sir Andrew and Maria as they wake the night with their unseemly revels, or hide among the bushes to watch the strutting, cross-gartered Malvolio. Not the least exquisite incidents in Shakespearian comedy are the incidental songs, Mr. Coburn has succeeded after a great deal of research in obtaining music for these that seems authentic and) truly Elizabethan, There is no orchestra with the players as there wasn't when the plays had their premiers at the old Globe Theatre but the music is sung by a quartet of men's voices. The men are niaaen away in me shrubbery somewhere, and the rising and falling of the quaint, appealing old tunes on the night air lends much to the syly an at mosphere of the productions. Mr. Coburn's company this year is larger and stronger than ever and its appearance here may be anticipated with a great deal of pleasure The Coburn Players have at tracted widespread attention at; Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Prince ton, Bryn Mawr and many others colleges where alfresco perform-, ances have been of unusual inter est. They appear under their auspices yearly and the heads of these institutions are unanimous in praising the unusually fine Continued on second page STATE MEET AT RALEIGH Six Colleges to Compete for Track Trophy What promises to be the great est track ; meet ever pulled off in North Carolina will take place in Raleigh next Saturday 'when six North Carolina colleges will gath er to compete for the silver trophy cup offered by the-Raleigh Cham her of Commerce. Trinity, Guil ford, -A. and M., Davidson, Wake Forest, and Carolina will togeth er send about one huudred track men to the meet. Carolina won the cup last year over Wake For est and A. & M.

H u tc h i us, bf Wake Forest, Duboise, "'f Davidson, and Floyd, of A. and M., will do their best to take first places from Carolina. The other colleges will have good men present. Carolina has been in but one inter-collegiate meet this year, but that one was enough to show that Cartmell has the goods. Some folks will have to go some to beat him. Special trains will be run to the meet. The regular train leaving Raleigh at 7:00 o'clock will be held there in order to let the west bound , passengers catch it. A large crowd of students from here is expected to go- to see the White and Blue smash records. DR. ARMSTRONG ON FRENCH POETRY Dr. Edward C. Armstrong- Prof of Romance Languages in Johns Hopkins University lectured in Gerrard, Hall Monday night ou "French Pilgrims and Poets." After tracing the development of the French epic which had its origin in the minstrel and folk songs of the tenth century, Dr. Armstrong spoke at length of the influence that religion and the church had had on French poetry. Besides being an impressive speaker, Dr. Armstrong is a, scholar whose worth is well recog nized, and those who heard him Monday night enjoyed a privilege not commonly afforded. There was a goodly number present. ; . ' The following men have been initiated into the Senior Order of the Golden Fleece: W S. Tillett, R. O. Huffman, A. L. M.' Wig gins, Walter. Stokes, Jr., D. L.

CAROLINA WINS AT CHARLOTTE General Lee, Complete Mas ter, Holds Virginia to Four Scattered Hits ALL RUNS MADE LN THE FOURTH The Game Was Played in a Mass of Mud, but in Spite of This, Caroli na Put ITp an Errorless Contest. Irby and Winsted Stars. Team Wa.s Able to Hit Rixey "When Hits Counted. Disaster came to Virginia, and delight to CiTolina in the fourth inning of-.' the third big battle when the White and Blue repres entatives found Rixey for four runs which .spelled victory.

The game was played in a mass of mud, the new league grounds at Charlotte havidg been rendered , exceeding slushy by the rains of the preceding" night. In view of the condition of the park, the game waa noteworthy and the fielding better than ordinary cali ber. . - ,. The fourth frame which decid ed the event was introduced by Hanes who outran a slow bunt to Rixey. The stands, flooded with Carolina enthusiasts, turned loose the first gennine volume of appl ause, for not untill then had a Carolina man reached first. The sacrifice bunt of Edwards was en tierly sufficieut to put Hanes on second. Irby proceeded to drop another slow roller to Rixey and in an excess of eagerness to nail Hanes at third, he threw weirdly and umpire Henderson gave the decision in favor of the boys from the Hill. Irby stole second just before Swink hit a long sacrifice fly to right field on which Hanes prized open tne running and started the fun. Leak produced a perfectly sani tary single to center field and Irby stopped on third. Winstead followed and delivered the single that sent the second run over with Irby. Bailey was passed. Fin ley let one get by him and the runners advanced to second and third in time to score when by a misjudgment Fitchette allowed Page's fly to drop safely, bring ing in the other two runs. After this Carolina only threatened se riously to add to the score, this being in the fifth when two men got to base on a single by Swink and an error by McGuire on Ed wards' grounder. The Virginia crowd started off as if they were intimate in their acquaintance with Lee's curves, Finley, the first up cutting a good one to left for a single. He stole second after Lile had failed to sacrifice and both Douglas and Coutinued on third page
