Tar Heels To Meet
Team Here Today
CHAPEL HILL, N. C, SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1926
BE, FAST MEET
Old Time Rivalry Will Be
Stronger Than Ever.
FRESHIES MEET DUKE
Rare Treat in Doubleheader Is Offered
to Followers of Cinderpath
The Tar Heel track team will be hosts
today to the State College cindermen in
their annual dual meet. The meet will
mark the second meeting of the year be
tween the two state supported institu
tions of learning, the Tar Heels having
licked the Techmen to a frazzle in the
annual State Intercollegiate Champion
ships at Raleigh last Friday and Sat
urday. ' In that meet the Fetzerites
counted up 98 points to 46 for the State
runners, who finished in second place in
the team ranking, and the dope gives
the Hillians a heavy margin in the dual
test this afternoon.
The clash today will bring together
in several races the star performers of
the two rival outfits, and a spectacular
contest will certainly result. The sprints
and the mile run will probably furnish
the fireworkf of the days' events. In the
sprints two of the fastest dash men in
the South will meet, with McPherson
having a slight edge on "Doodle" Sides,
State's star. Galen Elliott, successor to
the brilliant Bell as Carolina's greatest
distance runner, will meet another great
miler when he toes the mark with Wright,
That mile Tun will probably be unus
ually fast, and Elliott is due to lower
his best time for the season by several
.seconds. Wright's fastest time is 4 min
utes 32 seconds, while Elliott has done
4 minutes 29 seconds once this spring.
Their race , in the State Championships
was one of the most spectacular contests
ever witnessed in the state, with Wright
leading for three laps only to fall before
the gallant finish of the Tar Heel run
Sides, Tech sprinter, runs the century
and two-twenty dashes and the quarter
mile, all of the going in near record
time. After taking second in the hun
dred last Saturday and placing well up

of the best dances' of the year. The
Tarsonians have been engaged to make

Mr. Poole is coining here upon the in

in Memorial Hall, Tuesday evening, May
250 people from all parts of the
state, after several hours' of stormy ses
sion, passed a resolution opposing stute
educational institutions employing teach
ers who are not in accord with orthodox
teachings regarding the Bible. It was
decided to start organisation work among
the fundamentalists in every county of
the state immediately and to perfect
these local organizations as quickly as
possible. It was announced that North
Carolina needed no outside aid in decid
ing the issues under discussion.
Dr. T. T. Martin,, field director of the
Anti-Evolution Society of America, was
in Charlotte several days expecting to
take a prominent part in the meeting.
Upon his arrival, Mr. Martin stated that
he wished to "arrange a debate with some
supporter of the modernist views. Tom
P. Jimison, former Carolina student, and
now a uiarlotte lawyer, onerea xo de

question but refused to do so under the
banner of the Atheist Society of America.
Plans for this debate did not materialize,
President Chase was quoted during the
meeting as having stated that a teacher
had a right to teach as he believes. This
statement was the cause of a long argu

Carolina Association of Certified Public
Accountants which has been In session
here for the last three days, will finish
all business Jthis morning and adjourn
mis aiternoon. xne accountants are
meeting here through the invitation 'of
the , University School of Commerce.
Dean Carroll, of the Commerce School,
opened the meeting with an address of
welcome and in his speech praised the
high standards of the profession but
pointed out two possible dangers. He
emphasized the necessity of keeping out
exploiters and adventurers and the dan
ger on the other hand of barring well
qualified candidates by making the re
quirements too stringent.
Frederick Moore, president of the as
sociation, responded to Dean Carroll's
welcome. He pointed out the benefits of
a closer (relationship between the Asso
ciation and the School of Commerce and
stated that the School was proving a
great aid to the profession.

of Charlotte, who discussed "Standard

AT WAKE FOREST
Sapp Slater to Draw Hurling
Assignment in Today's
IS AN IMPORTANT GAME
Large Number of Carolina Students
Are Expected to Make Pilgrimage to
Baptist Institution Today.
One of the most important games on
the Tar Heel schedule will be played this
afternoon when Coach Duke Duncan's
aggregation take the Wake Forest De
mon Deacons into camp at Wake For
est. The contest will practically decide
the Tar Heels' chances towards state
championship honors, and the Duncan
men are expected to put up a stiff scrap
before they concede the game to the
Deacon's win column. '
It is not definitely known just who will
occupy the mound for the Tar Heels this
afternoon since "Duke" persists in
upsetting all predictions made by snorts
scribes, but it is thought that because
of the fact that "Lefty" Westmoreland
and BUI Poyner have both had their
turn on the hillock during the past week,
Odell Sapp will probably receive the
hurling assignment today.
Sorrell.ithe Deacon's star moundsman.
worked against the Duke University Blue
Devils Tuesday and it is not thought
that he will occupy the mound against
the Duncanmen today. Eliminating the
"speed ball artist" from the affair, the
Deacon's choice for the mound position is
doubtful However, should Sorrell get
the assignment for the Deacons, the Tar
Heel "murderer's row" will have Just
heaps of fun connecting with his fast
ones for extra base knocks. When "Hat"
Hatley, Mackle, "Moose" Tenney, Bob
Sides, and Bill Sharp face Sorrell at the
rubber, it will be a great contest
The Deacons handed the Blue Devils
an awful walloping Tuesday. While Sor
rell was holding the Duke sluggers to
two lone bingles, both off the bat of
Saunders, his team-mates were knocking
three Duke hurlers all over, the lot for
a total of eighteen safe swats which
counted for' eleven markers. It will be
remembered that "Lefty" Westmoreland
and Bill Poyner turned in a hard-earned
5 to 4 victory from the Blue Devils
