CINDERS WILL FLY WHEN
CAROLINA MEETS STATE
FOR TRACK SUPREMACY
Almost Impossible to Pick Win
ner, But Dope Indicates Eight
First Places for Tar Heels.
STATE TEAM IS STRONG
(By THE HAY-SHAKER)
Perhaps the greatest track meet ever
staged in the history of the Btate comes
Friday on Emerson field when Carolina
meets N. C. State. The time made by
both teams in the various events, with
only a few exceptions, is better than
any witnessed in the state in years.
The greatest amount of interest will
be centered in the javelin throw and
dashes. The javelin record has been
broken alternately by Crater of State
and Abernethy of Carolina, nearly as
often in the past two weeks as the en
durance dance record, while a gentle
man commonly known as William Mor
ris of N. C. State has been caught in
.9 4-5 seconds in the century race.
How the Events Will Go
Basing dope on common sense and
time made, Carolina should win first
places in the following events: 440,
Tow hurdles, 880, one mile, broad jump,
pole vault, javelin and one of the
State College will win firsts in the
liigh hurdles, two mile, high jump, shot
put, discus and one of the dashes most
probably the 100.
The Dash Proposition
Maybe Mr. Morris ran his 100 against
Elon in 9 4-5 seconds ami Mr. Bynum
his 220 in 22 3-5 seconds at the same
-time. If they did they are to be con
gratulated, especially the former, for
his record places him among the six
greatest living sprinters in the coun
try Charles Paddock, Lecouey, etc. It
may be that the timers were not nerv
ous and a little hasty or that the boys
didn't jump the gun, but if he can
run the century in 9 4-5 seconds on a
track with three-quarters of an inch of
loose cindi-rs, lie could most certainly
make it iii 9 3-5 seconds on a good one
this would put him in distinguished
company; Loconey runs it in 9 7-10
and it is to be seriously doubted if a
gentleman whom lavc Sinclair lias de
feated 7 out of 7 times with 10 1 -."
time, should show such tremendous im
provement in one year. Ou the face
of things he will win Friday, but the
time will be a little more reasonable
something like 10 flat or most likely
10 1-5 seconds. As for Bynum, Sinclair
has defeated him S out of 8 times in
the 220. Byrum tied the State record
in the Elon meet.
The Javelin Throw
The javelin throw's going to be close.
But if Abernethy doesn't get puffed up
over recent laurels or have nn off-day
there is no reason why he shouldn 't
win tho event. He tossed it loS feet
3 inches against Georgia and Clemson,
and 170 feet 11 inches against Trinity
last Friday. Crater hurled it 159 feet
9 inches against Davidson, and 105 feet
3 inches against Elon.

The ordinarily humdrum monotony
of the chapel period is sometimes, al
though seldom, happily broken into. A
rare treat came last Friday, when Hon.
Francis D. Winston, at one time a judge
of the superior court of North Carolina,
spoke in chapel.
Judge Winston is an old Carolina
alumnus, and was one of the first to
enter this institution when it reopened
in 1875, after the Civil War. His rec
ord as a lawyer is enviable, and he is
today perhaps one of the leading figures
in political and legal circles in the
What Judge Winston set out to say
in his speech was that the inind, even
after it has become educated, should
still remain in a receptive state. To
make his point the speaker reviewed
some parts of his own life and experi
ence. "I was successful from the be
ginning," he said; "very soon I had
as much money as I wanted or needed.
I based my perception of tilings on
strict truth, being versed in the clas
sics. But somehow something was
He then told how a young lady unin
tentionally set him right by a careless
remark. "I found that what I lacked
was romanticism," he continued. "I
found further that it is not always truth
but what you can make people believe
tr bo the truth that counts. Soon I
licca'ne aware of the fact that my trou
ble was the lack of the correct apper

CASEY'S MIGHTY SMASH OVER
RIDDICK MOUNT GIVES STATE
TEAM FIRST DEFEAT OF YEAR
Casey's terrific drive for the circuit
was the deciding factor in Saturday's
victory over State College. History re
peated itself in this instance, for in
1921 Morris won the Wake Forest game
with an unusually long home run, and
last spring his four base clout decided
the last Trinitv contest.
PHARMACY SCHOOL HOLDS
ANNUAL SPRING ELECTION
C. B. Whitehead and Sam Sowell to
Represent Pharmacy School on Stu
dent Council and Campus Cabinet.
At an election held Friday, the Phar
macy students elected C. R. Whitehead
to represent them on the Student Coun
cil, and Sam Sowell, the Campus Cabi
net. Both Whitehead and Sowell won
over their opponents by a large major
ity, Whitehead winning from Hood 51
to 27, and Sowell coining out the long
end of the bargain 52 to Moose's 20.
The election caused some stir in the
Pharmacy School for the past week or
so, as a number of men were willing
to accept the responsibilities of the
office. Formerly it has been the custom
for the class president to be the repre
sentative on the Student Council. Next
year, however, the offices of Student
Councilman and class president will bc
two separate and distinct offices.

AN OPEN LETTER
To the many friends who have
shown marked anxiety as to my po

like to state that I am not a candi
date for the office of editor-in-chief
of the Tar Heel nor for any other
honor within the gift of the student
body. This decision had been reach

nouncement thereof deferred only
until after the student body elec

are entirely personal and concern
nobody except myself. However, be
ing of a charitable disposition, I am
willing to go into further details
with any person whose curiosity is
so great as to be painful to him.

interest in my political prospects, I

Trinity would win only two first places
out of the 14 events the broad and

wouldn't be to their credit.
Perhaps the outstanding perform
ances of the evening were those of Dave
Sinclair in the 100 and Abernethy in
the javelin throw. Dave Sinclair cross
ed the tape in 10 flat, closely followed
by Waldo of Trinity, who promises to
be the outstanding sprint man in the
state next year. Thoro is no fluke about
this time; Dave Sinclair really ran it
in 1U llat. It miglit De wen to say,
though, that he would never have made
it in this time but for the fact that
tho afternoon was one of the best ex

seemingly unimportant, but in reality
the cause of his remarkable perform
ance. Ten second flat men are rare and
it is to bo doubted if the South, pro
per, has any.
Abernethy has jumped out of the rut
of sporadicism and it is to be hoped
that he won 't get back. Well, he broke
the javelin record again, with a giant
toss of 170 feet, 11 inches. The javelin
record has been as unstable during the
past two weeks as the endurance dance
record. First Crater of State broke
it with 159 feet, then Crater again with
16.") feet, and finally Abernethy upon
whose forehead now rests the laurel,
with 170 feet 11 inches. But his throne

Mr. Crater will revolutionize affairs
over here Friday.
Shankle, Trinity's jumper, was in
great shape and he experienced little
difficulty in relieving Carolina of two
first places the broad jump and high
jump. And by the way, by outvaulting
himself, he pushed Lacy Ranson on the
pole vault. With a total of 13 points
he was high point man of the meet.
Coxe finished nearly 10 yards ahead
of his man in the quarter mile. He ran
it with his customary ease in 52 1-5
seconds, and was never threatened seri
ously at any point in the run. If ho
could get stiff opposition, something
like Ben Baker, of Virginia, he would
finish in 50 fiat in this event.
Milstead ran a mighty pretty half
mile. A good performance could hardly
have been expected of Andy under the
conditions. He has boen running the
two mile, the mile, the quarter, and fin
ally the half. He 's good on all of them
but his failure to concentrate on ono
event lias resulted in a loss of stride.
It is most likely that he will run the
half from now on.
Lacy Ranson had hard luck in the
pole vault. True, he won the event,
but Lacy should have established a new
record over the 11 foot 3 inch record
which he holds now. He cleared the
bar a full foot at 10 feet 10 inches.
His first two attempts for a record were
not successful. On his last chance as
he mounted towards the bar which was
poised 11 feet 4 inches in the air it
looked as if he would go over easily,
but his hand slipped on the bar and
spoiled the vault. Shankle, who hud
never vaulted over 10 feet, and this
height rarely, outstripped hims.-lf by
sticking with Ranson to 10 fee: 7 inc'i

The Carolina freshmen received their
first defeat of the season Thursday
when Oak Ridge Institute trounced
them 9 to 0. The Cadets played a su
perior brand of baseball in every phase
of the game, colecting eight hits and
making nine runs while the firBt year
men connected only twice with Shields'
offerings. Costly bobblos and bonehead
plays lost the game for them.
Phillips was decidedly off color, walk
ing five men, striking out only one, and
showing a remarkable ability, at throw
ing the bnll away with men on base.
The freshmen were unable to solve the
delivery of the visiting south-paw, and
pried loose only one clean liit, while six
of these young gentlemen were guilty
of striking out.
The game was pactieally devoid of
outstanding plays. Thomas made i
beautiful catch of Hay worth's sizzler
in the seventh and Flowo at second,
while guilty of one error, robbed the
freshmen of several hits by excellent

sport called baseball and, as the tale
relates, the mobs in tho stands groaned

But here in Raleigh today mighty
Casey Morris, Carolina 's captain, didn 't
strike out; he struck the ball a mighty
smash that carried it far and away

field of Stato College's ball park, across
the high hedge and crashed it into the
walls of the college Y. M. C. A. build

way or other fought his way into tho

neither Stato nor Carolina threatened
in the fifth, but in the sixth "Monk"
McDonald, who got two of Carolina's
four hits, crashed a double onto the

McLean's sacrifice, and squeezed home
on Bonner's sacrifice bunt which Cur
