List of Speakers Large and
n r . . . . " -r
On r riday night the Juniors,
held their annual banquet in the
University Inn, and, despite the
fact that Friday was the thir-j
teenth and the tickets were SI. 85!
. . i
it is alleged that they enjoyed a" DI
very delightful evening.
The purpose of class banquets
was shown by Mr. Fuller by
reading- Mr. Chambers' editorial
on the subject after the second
course, and the banquet, if any,
lived up to the requirements.
Acting-Prcsiden Graham made
the first speech of the evening
with a plea for higher University
unity and . class, ideals. Mr.
Newsom followed with a state
incut of the achievements and
hopes of the Class.
Dr. Greenlaw, our self-styled
"Freshman Professor", spoke of
the depth and richness of the
historical associations connected
with our old buildinirs and cam
pus as contrasted with the new
ness and up-to-dateness of other
colleges where he had been. Mr.
Tamraz began his response by
apologizing for any breaks he
might make in his English and
the went ahead advocating- closet
union between the professional
and academic students.
And so it went, Prof. Shicy,
Mr. Moss, Frank Graham, R. T.
Bryan, lloushall and Patv, each
advocating- some pet reform and
each giving- the class what it ex
pected, a good speech.
The chief reform and probably
the most needed one was the con
duct of students toward the girls
in the Pickwick. Delinate steps
were taken with the hope that
some g-ood might result.
The program, extemporaneous
speeches, cigars and banquet
lasted until after 1 A. M but
who cares. Every one enjoyed
everyone else and everything.
DR. GREENLAW AT Y. M. C. A.
Discusses Bible Simply as a
Dr. E. A. Greenlaw spoke in
terestingly at the Y. M. C. A.
meeting-Tuesday night on "The
Literary Value of the Bible."
Dr. Greenlaw stated that the
Bible contains all forms of litera
ture, but this fact is not generally
recognized because one does not
read the Bible through so as to
get an idea- of the whole book;
and because the Bible is unfortu
nately not divided according to
the various forms of literature.
e showed by illustrations from
books of Isaiah and Job the fact
that the Bible contains excellent
drama. Dr. Greenlaw recom
mended the use of Mollen's an
notated books of the Bible as an
aid in reading the Bible from
both a literary and a religious
standpoint. The address was

in the large part that University
professors play in scientific pro

discourse was delivered by Pro
fessor Werner in receiving this
prize, lu it lie outlined tne suc

of his idea concerning the consli
tution of inorganic compounds
Professor Werner speaks of
only two men whose work bears
an important relation to his in
vestigations. One is A. Miolati,
an Italian, the other Professor
Charles II. Herty, head of the
department of Chemistry in the
University of North, Carolina
Professor Werner says, in speak
ing of his two investigations,
carried out with Miolai, and Dr,
Herty that "They constituted
the best experimental foundation
on which would be erected the
hew structure of the constitution
of inorganic compounds."
On the practical side of science
Dr. Herty has made one of the
most notable contributions to
Southern economic progress ever
contributed by a single man
This is through the Herty cup,
