From Carolina-Virginia Game.—Per
sons familiar with the red hills of
Orange county must have joined me
in silent prayers of thanks tonight a
we motored over modern highways
that have replaced the almost inac
cessible roads of the past. On a
Thanksgiving night eleven years ago j
I motored from Durham to this city I
in a rain such as has fallen tonight I
and on that trip we left Durham at
10 p. m. and reached Greensboro tit
4 a. m. Tonight, despite a rain that
began falling about 7 o’clock just as
my party was leaving West Durham,
we easily made the trip to Greens
boro in a little more than two hours.
The red hills of Orange arc no ter
ror to motorists now for the mud has
been girded with a white sheet of ce
ment and we moved without hesitation
and with but little fear ueross hollows
and up and dawn hills that would have
tested the patience of .Job eleven years
ago. From Hillsboro on through
Mebane, Haw River, Graham and into
Burlington there used to la* a so-call
ed road that skirted a desolate coun
tryside. For miles it was possible to
drive without seeing any sign of life..
Even the streets of the towns one
passed through were but little more
than a succession of mud holes after
a steady rain such as we had tonight.
But tonight, thanks to the widespread
use of the auto and its Inevitable de
mand for gas, and a spirit of fearless
ness so far as bonds are concerned
on the part of North Carolinians, we
negotiated the trip without a single

Two minor and one major accidents

accidents occurred but rather that the

I any auto driver can remember'the time
when a rain meant slower progress
ou the highways. There was an un
written Jaw of the road about the rate
of speed to be ma-ntained and the
care one should take about passing
autos. Persons whizzed by me to
night as though I were stand'ng still.
> From the liavdsurface they would
slide into the mire of the approaches,
apparently confident that no harm
could come to them. Several persons
told me tonight that they drove from
■Chapel Hill to Greensboro in two
hours—a distance of abyut 55 miles,
with at least a delay of fifteen or
twenty minutes in dodging through the
congestion at The Hill.
Fully eighteen thousand persons
saw the football game at Chapel Hill
this afternoon, most of them having
motored from their homes. That
means at least 4,000 cars were ou the
highways leading from Chapel Hill
tonight for the average load of each
would hardly be more than four per
sons. Most of the traffic had hut
few roads to choose from—to Durham,
to Hillsboro and to Pittsboro—so
these roads were of necessity badly
congested. Yet there were plenty of
persons foolish and careless enough
to drive over them at the rate of 55
and 60 miles an hour, in the face of a
rather driving rain.
I saw persons at the gmiie who had
apparently imbibed too freely of con
traband. The system under which
such people operate has always been
a mystery to me. They will drive
several hundred miles, pay out per
fectly good money for tickets and then
get too drunk to see the game. It
seems to me they could get the same
kick at home, saving the long drive
and the concurring expenses. They
would also keep many sober specta
tors from being annoyed.
It is nothing but natural to expect
‘ drunks" among such a gathering.

eighteen thousand and you will find

It was a filled with a sense
of the imminent, one of those nights
when the very air, for all it* soft
ness and the frail, trailing scent of
syringa, was vibrant the un
expected, the remote, possibly evdn
the tragic. Even to Lacy; a man
sophisticated, worldly, experienced
as neither the boisterous Bing or
the intellectual Adams was experi
enced, understood this. There was
in him nothing of the primitive
which colored the rude gestures and
the passion of the Southerner, nor
anything cold, fishlike, of the intel
lectual penfration which distinguish
ed the Bostonian. He was, in short,
a man who lived by his senses, with
out reflection, without worrying i
very profoundly about the reasons
or the motives of any action. He j
took what came his way.
Now as he sat at the wheel of the !
purring Isotta-Franchini, with a
perfumed and renegade nun by his
side, his mind slowly turned over
adventures of the past. One by
one he recounted his conquests.

singing along beautifully. On either j

spangled with fireflies. The scent ol

but with it there mingled another

penerating. What was it? Ah,

at his ease. He had talked to many j

Slowly there came over him once

sense of the cynical weariness which
had enveloped him for so long.
