Dockery, a student in the En gineering school here at thei University. The long arm of fate picked up a tiny black ob ject, tossed here and there by the mountainous waves of the Atlantic, carried it to a pretty little beach on the coast of Bel gium, Dlaced it in the hands of a young French girl, and car ried an answer back across land and sea to "Nick" Dockery in Chapel Hill. , ' Last August "Nick" was crossing the Atlantic enroute to Paris and a tour of Europe. As the West-Ellare sisrhted the English coast ,500 miles distant, "Nick" played his "trump." He enclosed a dollar bill and a note in a long-neck Scotch bottle; in the note he wrote his name, ad dress, the date, the latitude and longitude, and a request that if this message should by some chance come into anyone's pos session, for that person to com municate with him at once. He carefully corked and sealed the bottle, and hurled it into the ocean. "Nick" had completely for gotten the incident until Mon day, February 17, when he found in his box at the . Sigma Chi house, a strange letter with Bel gium stamps, and postmark. It was an answer to his fateful message of the sea. "Nick" has replied to the let ter and is anxiously awaiting word from his unseen corres pondent on the other side of the world. The letter follows : Relief Fund Grows Additions to 'the "Campus Relief Fund for Orange .Coun ty Poor" yesterday came from the following: M. Nakamura, Haysworth Jones, T. L. Par sons, Anonymous, and "Three Friends." The donation from the "three friends" was sent is as an anonymous composite contribution. The total received for the fund now amounts to $256.70.

GLEE CLUB ON WAY TO CONTEST IN NEW YORK The University glee club left Person hall early yesterday morning in a large bus, making the trip to Washington, D. C, where they stayed over last night at the Hamilton Hotel. Today they will make the re mainder of the trip to New York. Tonight at 6 :30 they will attend a ""dinner given for them at the New. York Athletic Club by W. A. Whitaker. Tomorrow night the national intercollegiate glee club contest will be staged at Carnegie Hall. Mr. Nicholas W. Dockery, Rockingham, N. C, U. S. A. My dear Mr. Dockery : The winds of chance iave blown me your unique, though laconic, billet de boteille. And let me hasten to add that the same winds have blown you a4 unique . distinction whether honor or not you shall decide for yourself. But distinction it certainly is, inasmuch as you are the first person. to ever re ceive a letter from me without my first having met and become more or less personally acquaint ed with that person. I am not the kind of a girl that you may have supposed abounds in port towns, who would gladly write to what you Americans call "a will o' the wisp," just so long as the "will o' the wisp" wore pantaloons. But wind, and chance have combined themselves in pres enting to me your name and ad dress, safely tucked down the throat of a bottle, and curiosity which by right and preroga tive, all women possess--now impels , me to address myself to you, my vague and faraway . . . what shall I say? ... Friend? Not yet because I don't know you, nor what you look like. You may be a gay young Lothario, a modern Don Juan. Youmay be married! ur you may oe a wrinkled old granddaddy, and this missive may eventually amuse your charming -grandchildren. So, I dare not call you my friend. However, you shall be my "potential" friend. So, I openly write you, leaving the outcome of this postal ex- (Continued on last page') MARCH ISSUE OF SCHOOL JOURNAL IS MAILED OUT Two More Issues of Publication To Be Released During Pres ent College Year. The' March' issue of the High School Journal, which is pub lished by the school of educa tion made its appearance yester day and is being mailed to . its subscribers throughout the state and nation. Two more issues of the J ournal for the present school year, those for April and May, are forthcoming. Several articles of general in terest are included in the cur rent issue of the Journal. In "Our Schools and Our Public," Dr. A. Monroe Stowe, professor of education at Randolph Macon Woman's College discusses the attacks being made upon the public schools, and considers the work and duties of the school today. Defining the task of the elementary schools as not to fill the mind of the pupils but to "develop abilities needed in liv ing," and that of the secondary school "to help boys and girls to become better acquainted with themselves and the world in which they live," Dr. Stowe em phasizes the. need of ways and means of accomplishing these aims and, especially, of clearing up misconceptions of the public about the worth of the -public school curriculum.

Last night saw the organiza tion of the University's first Pre-Law Association. An interested group of 50 pre-law students met in Man ning hall, and following an in teresting program featured by addresses by Professors R. D. W. Connor and M. T. Van Hecke, voted unanimously to organize the long-sought Pre-Law Associ ation. W. W. Speight, who presided, was elected president. Other officers elected were Charles Whedbee, vice-president, and Bill Jarman, secretary. Meetings are to be held every three weeks, with programs de signed to acquaint future law students with the law school and to aid them in selecting academic courses and extra - curricular activities which will give them the best background for the study of law. Membership is open to all stu dents seriously contemplating the study of law, or desirous of giving the profession considera tion before making up their minds definitely. At last night's meeting Dean C. T. McCormick expressed un qualified approval of the. move, declaring that law is not a sepa rate entity, but one branch of social science, which is becoming more and more interlocked with history, politics, economics, psy chology and even the natural sciences, which more and more is requiring a broadened back ground for the successful prac tioner. ; ' . .. .',. Waddell Gholson explained the purposes of the proposed organ ization, and as president of the Law School Association pledged the whole-hearted support of that body to the movement. In line with the proposed key note of future programs, Pro fessors Connor and Van Hecke spoke interestingly and stimu latingly of the value of history (Continued on last page) Radio Presentation Andy Each Week-day night - as the clock strikes seven, books are hastily dropped, meals are left unfinished and a mad dash made for the nearest radio, for that is the hour of the most popular entertainment feature of the evening, the Pepsodent presentation of Amos 'n Andy. The large, crowd of students gathered nightly in front of the Carolina Smbkeshop loudspeak er attests to the large following of this pair of black-face come dians, who regale millions f of Americans with their peppy ten minute dialogues. The fine style of negro char acterization which Amos 'n Andy present, combined with an interesting and highly amusing series of events occurring daily in their administration of the Fresh Air Taxicab of America, Incorpulated (1 cab), have suc ceeded in winning for them a place in the hearts of all radio listeners.

Davis Lectures To v William Cain Club At the meeting of the William, Cain student chapter of the A. S. C. E. held last night in Phil lips' hall, C. R. Davis, a senior in the school of engineering, pre-. 1 sented an illustrated lecture on "The Westchester County Park" System."
