campus and last week the trustees and
the architects examined this work, and
voted in favor of the North Carolina
stone. I got the State Geologist and we
went to the quarry. I asked him was
there a sufficient quantity for our needs
and was it suitable for building pur
poses. He said there was enough there
to build a wall to Jerusalem and hen
build Duke University and that as a
building material it was unexcelled. I
think it a most wonderful thing that

RULING ON NARCOTICS
BY SUPREME COURT
Court Decides About Doses “Dope” Ad
dlcst May Give to Themselves.
(By the Associated Press)
Washington, April 13.—Physicians in
prescribing narcotics to addicts are not

for tty their prescription to small doses
tor strictly .'curative purposes when the
narcotics are to be self-administered by
the addicts, the Supreme Court held to
day in a case from Spokane, Washing

In the lower court the government
won on its contention that when the nar
cotics are to be self administered the
physician can only prescribe that quanti
ty which will be curative of the habit,
and not place sufficient narcotics in the
hands of the addict to enable him to be
come a seller of narcotics, or to admin
ister to himself doses larger than neces
sary to effect, a cure.
