DR. PATTON OF PRINCETON DE
LIVERS THE McNAIR LEC
TURES, ON AUTHORITY OF
BIBLE, CHURCH, JESUS.
AND THE REASON.
President Patton of the Theolog
ical department of Princeton Uni
versity delivered the MacNair lec
tures in chapel four nights, last
week and Sunday. Dr. Patton's
audience was on the increase from
night to night until Sunday night
we had one more occasion to deplore
our lack of an auditorium of suffici
Dr. Patton. Thursday night
said that he would divide his
subject into four divisions to wit:
the authority of the Bible, the au
thority of the Church, the authori
ty of Jesus, the authority of the
reason. On Thursday night he
spoke on his first division. He
showed with many arguments, ill
ustrated by several examples, that
were at some times amusing every
time clear ond pointed, that Christ
ianity resorted for it's authority al
ways back to the Scriptures. Dr.
Patton took up every class of so
called as he said Christians
and showed how in each case they
must turn to the BibltTfor their au
thority or do without it, He em
phasized the importance of the theo
logian. On Friday night Dr. Patton
spoke on his second division, the
authority of the church. He first
gave his definition of a church as a
body of Christians, "organized dis
organized or unorganized." Then
he attempted to show that the au
thority claimed by the several de
nominations was illogical. He ad
dressed himself particularly to his
"own dog" the Presbyterian church.
He concluded his remarks Friday
night with the assertion that he be-lieved-with
the Protestants of long
ago that each man had a right to
get whatever he pleased out of his
On Saturday night Dr. Patton
spoke on the third division of
his subject, the authority of Jesus.
He went at his subject in the same
way as formerly, analysing all the
opinions about Jesus and his author
ity and showed the fault of each ex
cept the true one.
On Sunday night Dr. Patton
concluded his series of address
es with a discussion of the
authority of the reason, his lost di
vision. He considered cases in
which reason was undoubtedly the
last resort of the faith, Then he
proceeded to compare his theory,
that the reason was the ultimate
resort of the faith, to some other
theories especially those that hold
that feeling or will ate the basis of
Christianity and truth. The brief
account we are aide to give here
does not do justice to the ableness
of President Patton's addresses and
we wish we might speak of them at
STEWART PITCHES A FINE GAME
CAROLINA HITS WELL BUT
FAILS TO GET IN THE
The first Amherst game was one
of the best contests ever witnessed
on the local field. Stewart was the
brightest luminary of the contest.

AMHERST HAD A WILD PITCHFR
MOREOVER CAROLINA HAD
THE GOODS INFIELD
jThe main features of the second
game was the playing of the Caroli
na infield which worked like a
charm. Armstrong caught a line
drive which was going at a mile a
minute rate, and made several other
nice stops. Winn and Duncan pull
ed off two fast double plays and
got everything that came their way
"Ham" went down iii the dust after
balls. His work reminded one of
the days when Earle Holt covered
the initial corner. Moore caught
a good l game. He broke up the
game by throwing Captain Jube out
at second in the ninth. Duncan
used his club to advantage, getting
a double and two singles out of
three times up. Vernon was in
the lime-light for Amherst. He
lined out three two-base hits, but
was so unfortunate on one occasion
as to fail to touch first base and was
Duls pitched excellent
ball in all except the final inning.
He had fine control, walking only
one man. Mclnerney was almost
wild as a certain man who is said to
have liyed in Borneo. He yielded
four passes, hit one batsman, and
seemed to find difficulty in locating
the rubber throughout the game.
The rooting at the both games
was good, and the Cheer -leaders
deserve praise for their work.

POOR GAME SATURDAY WE
MAKE NO EXCUSES TWO
The game with Elon College
Saturday was won by the 'Varsity
by a score of 6 to 5. With the ex
ception of , the seventh inning the
game was well played. In this in
ning Carolina made four errors, and
the visitors sent as many runners
across the plate.
Duls pitced five innings and held
the visitors to two hits and no runs.
Stewart, who relieved him, did not
have his usual control, but would
have held Elon scoreless if he had
been given the proper support.
Moore led the hitting with a triple
and two singles to his credit.

Two farces came off last Friday
afternoon. The Soph-Pharmacy
game, and the line up of the Seniors
against the 'Varsity. The pharma
cy team made about as many errors
as the sophomores made runs. The
seniors made a few more than any
team ever did, or will. No man on
either team was selfish, everybody
got his chance to make errors and
Those starring in making errors
for the pharmacy team were: the
shortstop, who shall be nameless,
and the rest of the team for whom
there is no space. For the seniors
Coffin and Watt were especially
rotten, but were aided by the out
field to a great extent. Did the
Tar Heel ever tell anyone that
it was a third baseman? We hope
The Soph-Pharmacy game had a
score of 17 to 5 in favor of the Soph
omores. The scorer is not yet done
counting the runs made by the 'Var
sity. The seuiors had not scored
when the paper went to press.
The boys, from Johston Counfy
met Saturday night and organized
with sixteen or eighteen charter
members. The following officers
were elected: E. W. Turlington,
President; L. G. Stevens, Vice
President; and J. II. Rand, Secreta
ry and Treasurer. The Club will
The 'Varsity goes up against Col
gate Thursday and Friday. Lafay
ette will play here Saturday and
Monday. Both nines are said to be
very strong. Hedgepeth is now
eligible to play and will probably
work in one of those games. That
hard-hitting Villanova team will in
vade these parts next Thursday.
