home lot. this year, the State College
Techmen pounded out eleven safe swats
to count for eight runs and defeated
Coach Duke Duncan's Tar Heel squad
ou Emerson field Tuesday afternoon by
the score of 8 to 6.
The garue was Interesting in parts.
For the first four innings the game
rocked along nicely, the Tar Heels count
ing twice in the second stanza, and the
Techmen scoring a marker in the third
and fourth stanzas. 'Then the fun be
gun. In the fifth frame the .Wolf pack
hopped on "Lefty" Westmoreland with
all four feet and touched him for three
swats to score four runs. Westmore
land was sent to the showers, Bill Poy
ner taking bis place on the mound, but
the Techmen ferreted out Bill's offerings
in the eighth' inning and made two safe
hits count for two more runs.
During this time the Tar Heels were
rollicking along at the small end of the
score under the masterful hurling of
Heal. However, the Tar Heel "murder
er's row'- got started in the fifth frame
and collected three safeties, one of them
a four-bagger by Hatley, to send Beal
to the showers, Green taking his place
on the mound. He held the Tar Heels

DEFEAT WAKE FOREST
Deacons, On Home Lot, Fall Before Tar
Heels Tuesday' Afternoon by Score
of 5 Matches to 2.
The Carolina Racqueteers continued
their winning streak by defeating the
Wake Forest Racqueteers at Wake For
est Tuesday afternoon by the score of 5
matches to 2. Captain Whitaker, of
Carolina, was defeated in the singles,
and he and Elgin lost to Powers and
Sawyer In the doubles. The Deacons had
suffered defeat only twice this season to
Duke and Carolina. But nevertheless
the Baptists were determined to win and
went into the game with the advantage
of being on their own courts.
For the first time this season Captain
Hap Whitaker was defeated in a dual
meet. He had played such men as
Whitener," Rogers, Agelesto and other
star players. However, Powers proved
too much, for him and sent him back, but
not before Hap had forced him to ex
tend himself to the utmost. The other
Tar Heels played their usual steady
game with occasional bursts of brilliance'.
Summaries of matches:
Singles: Powers (Wake Forest) de

Dr. Erich W. Zimmerman, Professor
of Commerce and Resources in the Uni
versity, delivered one of the principal
addresses at the thirteenth National
Foreign Trade Convention, held at
Charleston, S. C, April 28, 29, and 30.
He spoke on the subject, "The Eco
nomic Resources of the South Atlantic
Area," and his discussion met with fa
vor among the delegates.
One distinction which Dr. Zimmer
man received was that of being the
other college professor on the program.
Dr. Jeremiah Jenks, Professor in Re
search Government in N. Y. University,
was the other college speaker. About
fifteen hundred delegates from all of
Xorth and Central America and Europe
were present at the convention which is
one of the most important meetings held
in the South this year.
Dr. Zimmerman delivered his address
Thursday afternoon and the apprechr
tion which it received was shown by the
fact that all the printed copies were
distributed upon request within a few
minutes after the speech. An unlimited
second edition is being printed for free
distribution throughout the South At
In discussing the economic resources
of that section, Dr. Zimmerman pointed
out that the South Atlantic area is
playing the leading role in the phenom

important factors leading to this de
velopment were the opening of the Pan
ama Canal, the conquest of the cotton
belt by the boll weevil which forced

For the first time in the history of the organization the Senior Order
of 'the Golden Fleece has deigned to tap only four men a senior, two
juniors, and a fourth whose exact status is hard to define. The tapping
of such a small number is entirely without precedent in the twenty-four
years which the Fleece has been in existence and comes not only to
blight the hopes and aspirations of ambitious undergraduates but as
a startling innovation to the student body. Five is the lowest previous
number of men initiated into the order and this, coming back, in 1910,
was considered extremely extraordinary. :
Jeff Fordham, ruling Jason of the Fleece, presided over the cere
mony and introduced Dean J. F. Royster who in turn humorously
presented as principal speaker of the evening Dr. James Howard E.
Dondthaler, president of Salem College. s In a " short address, lasting
scarcely half an hour, Dr. Rondthaler proved his reputation as a speaker
and entertainer, and brought a splendid address on the "Paradox of the
By-Product" in which he stressed the value' of the by-products of an
education and its resultant effects on student leadership.
Immediately following Dr. Rondthaler's address Jeff Fordham explained
the purpose of the organization, stressed the qualifications which the
Fleece considers for membership, and briefly reviewed the history of the
order. He told how in 190.1 two studnts mt with Dr. Horace Williams
and after much deliberation and deep study of the needs, formulated the
Senior Order of the Golden Fleece and how the order has thrived since
that time. ''

The sensational and spectacular "Yel
low Journal" has at last made its ap
pearance on the campus, and has brought
grief to many of the Carolina celebri
ties. This journal not only uncovers all
the "hidden sins" of college lenders, but
brings to light undiscovered geniuses
who deserve to be brought to tlie atten
tion of tlieir fellow .students.
Judging from the second edition, the
publication of the first edition would
very probably have blusted the reputa
tions of the few students whose char
acters have thus far remained unscathed.
So no doubt fervent thanks are being
rendered to the "all-consuming blaze"
at the Orange Print Shop and to the
mighty powers-that-bc who suppressed
the first and uncensored "Yellow Jour
nal." Enough muddy facts remain to
Cause certain well-known campus char
acters to absent themselves from the

Sigma Upsilon should be commended
for furnishing the campus with such
choice hits f scandal. The editors have
proved without a doubt that they can
wield an eloquent pen and are no less
adept in the gentle art of ferreting out
all questionable nets or even thoughts.
No longer can the most skeptical one
dare insinuate that the members of "Sig
ma Up" are not the supreme literary
"cream of the campus."
The Gilded Fuzz showed Its superi
ority to the Golden Fleece by knocking
twice as .many men as the Fleece tapped.

IBSEN PLAY TO "be READ
BY ENITA NICKS MAY 30th
The little table and chair stationed hi
front of the Post Office last week for the
purpose of taking orders for Commence
ment invitations went almost unnoticed
by the majority of students, but for that
most important of campus groups, the
Seniors, it held a poignant significance.
Ihe sale of the Invitations brought for
cibly to the minds of the members of the
graduating class the fact that there re
mains only five weeks of their college
career, and they are beginning to Inau-.
giirutc the events that every year char
acterize the upproaching departure of the
Seniors. Class officers and executive
committees are working hard, arranging
a series of events to be held during the
few weeks that remain
The first of the Senior events will be
the Senior class ball, which is scheduled
for Friday evening, May 14, at the By
num Gymnasium? The music hv Hal
Kemp's band Is enough In itself to insure
the dance as a complete success, but that
is not all. .Tlie' Southern Conference
Track Meet and the crowd of visiting
girls that it Is expected to draw, to
gether with three other dances that week
end should furnish a large and choice
collection of feminine talent for the ball.
Tlie Gym will be decorated fittingly for
the occasion and delicious refreshments
will be served. The ball will be formal
in atmosphere and significance though
not strictly formal In regard to dress.
A feautre of the evening will be special
dances for the various honorary gropus
in the class, such as the monogram wear
ers, Phi Beta Kappu men, etc Those
eligible to attend the Senior hall include
all who are to receive degree this June
as well as those who are not a-oimr to
return next year. There will be a com
mittee to check up on ail attending,
which should do much to insure the right
proportion of girls and stags and pre
vent crowded conditions on the floor.
