Tve never seen anything like
it since joining the force,"' re
marked Chapel Hill Policeman
C. J. Simpson as he proceeded to
add up his score of accidents cov

with ice and there was a reason
for accidents, it was never this
bad," he said.
The thirdand final in this year's
series of Humanities Division Lec

in Gerrard Hall at 8:30 o'clock by
Dr. Urban T. Holmes, Kenan pro
fessor of Romance Philblogy.
, The topic' for lecture is "The
Beast Epic of Reynard the Fox."
This: theme permits him to bring
to the general audience, for whom
the lecture is intended, a store
of learning and a zestful ap
proach, Holmes said.
One of the most versatile men
on the. faculty, Holmes has had
an important place in music and
dramatics on the campus, and in
the religious life of the community.-
Last winter he Was awarded the
Legion of Honor Medal by the
h rench government for his con
tribution to the promotion of the
trench language and culture.
He has been a member of the
Department of Romance Langu
ages in the University since 1925.
He received his doctorate at Har
vard and spent a short period of
study at the University of Paris.
During the war Holmes was
with the Office of Strategic Ser
vices. He has been a Kenan pro
fessor since 1945, and is a Fel
low of the Medieval Academy of
America. He has written exten
sively in the field of the Middle
Ages and of Old French language.

Greenbaum gave no reason for j

answering the alarm was 350.

Some observers attributed the
large toll of accidents to the draft,
which many college students will
face after leaving school next
week; others opined that it might
have been the influence of "that

extremely difficult to make, pre

He also pointed out that since
the Selective Service expects
