OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION.
TAR HEELS WIN UNANIMOUSLY
DEFEAT GEORGE WASHINGTON IN SECOND ANNUAL DEBATE
Stacy and Andrews Make Great Speeches and Advance Arp
ment That is Well-Nigh Unanswerable-Reception
to the Visitors After the Debate.
Carolina won a unanimous decis
ion in the second annual debate with
George Washington University
held in Gerrard Hall Friday night.
The query was, "Resolved, That
the open shop subserves the inter
ests of the wage-earning classes."
Carolina defended the negative. .
The Qvisiting debaters were
Messrs. J. W. Berry, of the Dis
trict of Columbia, and E. O.
Schreiber, of Michigan, both in
the college department of George
Washington. Carolina's represen
tatives were Messrs. T. Wingate
Andrews and W. P. Stacy, both
seniors in the University.
The debate was gracefully pre
sided over by Dr. C. Alphonso
Smith. Mr. D. B. Teague acted
as secretary and Mr. T. L. Sim
mons as time-keeper. The judges
were President E. L. Moifitt of
Elon College, President W. L. Po
teat of Wake Forest, and Professor
E. W. Sykes, head of the econom
ics department at Wake Forest.
Immediately after the debating
officers and teams had ascended the
rostrum and had seated themselves.
Dr. Smith arose and in his usual
happy manner welcomed the debat
ers to the Old North State, then
after reading the stipulations gov
erning the debate he asked the sec
retary to announce the first speak
er and the fight was on.
The debate vyas one of the best
ever heard in Chapel Hill. Stacy
and Andrews had worked hard on
the question since Christmas and
the result of their labors was an
unanswerable argument in favor of
the closed shop. It was expected
that the debate would be of a high
order, but few were prepared for
the finished speeches that were
delivered by Carolina's representa
tives. Following the system of de
. bating that has been evolved at this
University by Prof. Williams, stud
ying the question until every detail
was familiar, and delivering their
speeches with the conviction of the
University man when he is sure
that he has right on his side, Stacy
and Andrews proved themselves to
be more than a match for the visit
ing team to the extent that Prof.
C. W. A. Veditz, of the George
Washington faculty, who accom
panied the the team, publicly ex
pressed himself as having no criti
cism to make concerning the decis
ion. And indeed the George Washing
ton men took their defeat gracefully.
They had fought a good fight, had
stubbornly contested every point,
had shown that they were foemen
worthy of Carolina's steel, but they
had lost, and the bitterness of de
feat was lessened by the fact that
they had been conquered by men
who are masters of the debating
Mr. Berry gave a careful defini
tion of the terms "open shop,"
"interests," and "wageearning
classes," pointing out especially
that the wage-earners now number
24,000,000, and that of this total
only 2,250,000 are in the unions,
4,000,000 are non-unionists in un
organized trades, and 17,750,000
are outside of the unions. An open
shop is one that is open to union
and non-union men alike; the oppo
site is the closed shop in which the
non-union men are not allowed to
work. From his statistics Mr.
Berry deduced the argument that
when the unionists raise wages they

raise the cost of the product of
their labor to all non-unionists and
to the other eighteen millions of
workers. "It is robbing eleven
Peters to pay one Paul."
Next he declared that the closed

LAFAYETTE WINS THE GAME
DEFEATS CAROLINA BY SCORE
OF 3 TO 2.
The Twirling Honors Pretty Evenly
Divided Uetween Edwards
Lafayette defeated Carolina yes
terday afternoon to the tune of 3 to
2. The game was intensely inter
esting from beginning to end, the
score being tied for the major
part of the time.
The playing of neither team was
quite as good as was expected, but
this is accounted for to a large ex
tent by the muddy condition of the
ground. Four errors, two of which
were very costly, were credited to
Carolina. Lafayette made three,
all of which were costly, as Caro
lina scored no earned runs.
The twirling honors were about
evenly divided between Fellen wider
and Edwards. Fullen wider seemed
to be a bit off his feed in the first
part of the game, but steadied down
later. He fanned seven men, while
Ed wards came in as close second,
having six to his credit.
The features of the game were
the phenominal batting of Long,
third baseman for Lafayette, w
came to the. bat twice and got two
hits, and the fielding of Stewart.

PROFESSOR COBB HONORED
OLD STUDENTS GIVE HIM A
A Birthday Present from Old Car
olina Men in U. S. Soil
For a number of years students
from our department of geology
have been securing positions in the
U. S. government service through
competitive examinations. Once
there, they have steadily advanced
to more important positions. Eight
of these men last week, in recogni
tion of his painstaking efforts to
prepare them, remembered their
teacher, Prof. Collier Cobb, with a
birthday present of a beautiful gold
watch and fob. On the back of the
watch is "C. C." in monogram,
and on the inside of the case:
' 'Presented by F. B., H. H. B., G.
N. C, W. E. H A. W. M., T. D.
R., J. J. S., R. A. W. March 21,
The watch was brought from
Washington by Mr. W. E. Hearn,
who in making the presentation
"Professor Cobb: Your boys in
the Soil Survey, whom you found
going through college without
much purpose in life and directed
in paths of ' usefulness, teaching
them the joy of communing with
nature, the sacredness of strenuous
service, the worth of the man who
labors in close contact with the
soil, boys whom you brought to a
clearer vision of manhood and put
in the way of achieving it, have
sent you this token of their love on
No teacher in the University
takes a deeper interest in his stu
dents, or is more active in promot
ing their welfare, and The Tar
Heel joins them in hearty good
wishes for many happy returns of
the dav to Professor Cobb.
The tennis association had four
prizes left over from the tourna
ment last fall: A pair of shoes
given by Patterson & Co., a pair of
shoes given by Pritchard, Horton &
Co., of Durham, a pipe by Eubanks
Drug Co., and a pocket knife by
Herndon Hardware Co. To get up
interest in the class tennis champ
ionship the association has offered
the shoes to the class champions
and the knife and pipe to the second
The members of the class teams
and all who try for the different
class teams must be members of the
tennis association. We want to
have this tournament at once and it
is hoped that the managers of the
different classes will get out their
teams at once. All the academic
classes have already elected man
agers and started the selection of
the teams. It is hoped that the
Med class, Pharmacy class and
Law class will do likewise.
