JACK ALLSBR00K IS ELECTED
TO SUCCEED J. 0. HARMON AS
PRESIDENT OF STUDENT BODY
First Year Law Student Wins
Over C. A. Holshouser by
ELECTION VERY ORDERLY
Only Two Candidates in the Race
' Less Than Twenty Illegal
Votes Were Cast.
J. R. Allsbrook, first year livw stu
dent from Roanoke Rapids, was elected
president of the student body in the elec
tion held Wednesday, receiving 87G votes
to the 407 of his opponent, Chas. A. Hols
hauser, a junior from Salisbury. " The
election was unusually quite and order
ly, no bitterness or factional animosity
being shown on either side. Hoth of
the candidates were warmly supported
by their friends but no mud-slinging was
The new president, who is the 6rst
professional student to have received
this much coveted honor, is a member of
the Thi Assembly, in the work of which
he has taken an active part, having been
treasurer during the past year. He was
one of the Phi representatives in the
Junior Oratorical contest this spring.
He is also a member of the Phi Alpha
Delta legal fraternity, Epsilon Phi Del
ta and is on the gymn team.
The final count of the ballots and the
official announcement of Allsbrook's vic
tory rings down the curtain on the chief
political drama of the year. The first
act was staged in Chapel on Monday,
April 10. Nominations were opened and
the name of Ilolshauser proposed. This
brought no particular surprise to any
body, because it was generally under
stood that the junior class president
would be a candidate. S. 15. Midyette
was nominated, but later withdrew his
Allsbrook 's nomination brought up the
inevitable wrangle over eligibility re
quirements. According to the measure
first passed in 1921 the student presi
dent must come from the rising senior
class and must have been a student at
the University for three years. It was
only after considerable dissent ion that
the original proposition was passed and
it has 1 ecu a source of discontent in all
elections since. Under tins regulation
Allshrook's nomination was challenged
and the hall was thrown into such con
fusion and debate that it was impossible
to finish with the business at hand.
On the following Friday ballots were
prepared and the students voted on the
question of limiting eligibility to members
of the junior class. There was a gen
eral feeling that such limitation discrimi
nates unfairly against members of the
professional schools. Out of three prop
ositions submitted on the ballot, the stu
dent body voted for the second, limiting
eligibility requirements to Ujree years'

The Publications Union met in the
"Y" last Monday night. At this
meeting a constitution was proposed
which provides for a new system of
management for the college publica
tions. The constitution was adopted
and will be presented to the student
body for its ratification or rejection
at an early date.

the Guilford team to two runs during
the three innings that he worked.
At this point "Tick" Moore got his
first chance of the Benson and after ho

mainly to his wildness, he settled down

of the American consulate in China.
' ' The purposes of the Asia Magazine, ' '
said Mr. Froelick, "are to arouse inter

lies beyond the Pacific, also to treat of
different phases of the economic and

Fifteen students will receive high
scholastic recognition Tuesday night
when their names will be announced
to the public as having successfully

secretary of the Phi Beta Kappa soci
ety, will speak on the occasion which
will be the first time in several years
that the Phi Beta Kappa candidates

This step has been taken in order to
impross the students with the signifi
cance and desirability of the Phi Beta
Kappa attainment. Rev. Mr. Voorhees
comes here from Atlanta after an ex

been getting the value of tho society
before college students.
The local chapter of the Phi Beta
Kappa society was established here in
1893 and the national chapter was re
ceived about the year 1913. At pres
ent there are four undergraduate mem
bers and 50 faculty members of tho
society in Chapel Hill. The local chap
ter maintains one of the most riffid
sets of requirements in the country,

is suggestive of never-to-be-forgotten
battles, of touchdowns in the last minute,
of winning runs in the ninth inning, and

a hard fought, thrilling game.

Sijr Out of Eleven Entrants
Largest Number Ever to Win Out in Gym Contests Leggett Wins
Honor in Freshman Year.
Frederick Archer, Superintendent of
Schools of Greensboro, was in Chapel

Weaver, professor of music in the University,
The largest number of men that have
ever made letters in the gym proved
their rights to wear tho covoted N.C.
last Monday night, when six out of 11
entrants successfully completed tho 80
required events. Those winning tho
monogram were A. C. Hewitt, Hickory;
C. L. Leggett, Hertford; J. R. Sams,
Kinstou; W. D. White, Beaufort; W. E.
Smith, Scotland Neck; and Vernon E.
Brown, of Richland. C. L. Leggett, a
member of the freshman class, was ad
judged to have shown the best form
among those participating in the tryout.
Leggett, in winning a gym letter in
his freshman year, has achieved an hon
or which has come to only two before
him. Carl S. Coffey, of the class of
1922, was one of the two. Leggett is
a natural gym man; he has a wonderful
physique and possesses unusual form for
a first year man. The unsuccessful con
testants were R. Y. Thorpe, J. R. Alls
brook, J. II. Bonner and Weston Bruncr.
The first three lost out on the hand
stand from the mat, while the hand
spring straight arms from the horse
proved to bo Weston Bruncr 's jonah.
Although they failed to get the N.C.
in this tryout, all the unsuccessful par
ticipants possess marked ability as gym
men, and will surely come through at
the next tryout.
D. B. "Mary" Worsham entered the
tryout with the others, and successfully
completed the 39 events on the hori
zontal and parallel bars. At this stage
his hands became tender and he wan
permitted to drop out with what he
had done to his credit. He will prob- -ably
be given a chance to finish at some
later date. If "Mary" makes his N.C. :
he will be the only blind student to
have ever achieved that distinction.
"Mary" is a good worker, has plenty -'
of grit and determination, a well de
veloped body, and good form.
