FIRST MEETING OF Y. M. C. A.
Two Ideas of Freedom One Defying!
Law the Other Acting in Harmony
With It. '
The first meeting of the Y, M.;
C. A. was held in Gerrard Hall
Tuesday night with President
Graham on the platform. The
meeting was conducted by W. P.
Fuller Atter the devotional

President Graham's subject wai
the ''Challenge of Freedom." In
the beginning of his speech he
gave a very clear discussion of
what true freedom is, and the
proper use of freedom; saying
that in freedom there is an abun1
dance of opportunities and inspi
ration, especially to the college
man. This he says is based on a
paragraph which he read from
Galatians: "You Imve been call
ed unto liberty; only use not lib
erty for an occasion of the flesh."
There are two ideas that men
have had and do have of freedom
and these two ideas are in strong
contrast. The first is that "Law
is an external restricted,'' and
that "freedom consists in defying
it." The second idea is that
"Law is internal" and that "iree
dom consists in acting in har
mony with it." Pres. Graham
then showed, how efficiency and
happiness, the resnlt and the
mood of success, would come from
following this deepest standard
In continuing he said that the
development of this second idea
marks the course of the progress
of civilization and our own per
sonal progress. It illustrated in
every phase of activity, in nature,
business, mechanics, athletics and
Each idea produces its type of
man in doing the work of the
world, and the world gets its work
done under the law either by
slaves, controlled externally by
statutes, fines, punishment, jails,
- repression and it is perfunc
tory or bad work.
Or the world gets its work done
by free men, who have discovered
that law is first of all internal.
The result is freedom, power,
happiness, truly creative work.

late organization, but it was not
necessary for any action on the
part of the council because of the

QUERY FOR HIGH
Committee Decides on Mer
chant Marine Question.
COMMITTEE AT WORK.
The query that will be discuss
ed this'year by the schools having
membership in the High School
Debating Uuion of North Caro
lina is: Resolved, That the
United States should adopt the
policy of subsidizing its merchant
marines engaged in the foreign
trade". This query was decided
upon after considerable deliber
ation by the committee from the
University, and it is thought
that wide-spread interest through
out the State will attend its dis
cussion by the school boys and
gins. i nis interest will no
doubt be heightened because of
the fact that the European war
has focused the attention of the
United States upon foreign trade
prospects, and the need and possi
bilities for an effective American
The High School Debating
Union is carried on under the
auspicies of the Di and Phi
Literary societies and the bureau
of extension of the University.
Since its inauguration two years
ago it has met with splendid suc
cess. Two comprehensive State
wide contest were participated in
by one hundred and fifty schools
and sixhundred student debaters,
and it is a safe estimate that ful
ly thirty thousand people heard
the discussions over the State on
the question of the initiative and
referendum ror North Carolina.
It is expected that the enrollment
of the schools will be larger this
year than last and the general
results of the debate greater.
Every secondary and high
school in the State is eligible to
become a member of the Union
and participate in the debate.
The method of procedure will be
the same as that for the past
years, tvery school mat enrolls
will be grouped with two others
for a triangalar debate, each
school putting out two teams,
one on the affirmative and the
other on the negative. Every
school which wins both of its tri
angular debates will send both
teams to Chapel Hill to contest
for the State championship and
the Aycock Memorial Cup. The
triangular debates will be held
throughout the State the latter
part of next March and the final
contest at Chapel Hill early in

charge of this work for the liter

I BAND ORGANIZES.
Charlie Coggins the Moving
Spirit in the Movement
for a Band.
Wednesday afternoon a num
ber of students met tc organize a
band for the coming year. Char
ley Coggins is the leadiug spirit
in the movement. He says the
outlook for a good band is very
good, that there islotsofgood
band material uow in college,
and that the main thing to do now
is to gerthe boys interested and
have them come out for practice.
In about a week or more a canvas
of the campus will be made for
the purpose of getting student
subscriptions for the pecuniary
support of the tooting tumult.
The baud is trying to get Mr.
Wilbur Royster to instruct them
and help in the entire organiza
tion and playing. Mr. Royster
has led the Carolina band before.
He is the best college band in
structor in the South. We need
a good band, especially at the
football games which will be
played here during the next few
weeks. During the University
Day celebration the band will
come in very handy.
At the first meeting there were
twenty-five candidates. There
were six or seven cornets, five
clarionets, three basses, four ptc
olos, three trombones,, five drum
mers, and some altos.
