chairman of the finance committee of
the association, gn ve in a report of
his year's work. Mr. Graham report
ed that the financial standing of the

for some years. He announced that

J. Cartmell had signed a contract to
act as general athletic trainer and
coach of the track team next year.
The association next proceeded to

SERMON IN GERRARD HALL
Dr. E. R. Leyburn, pastor of the
First Presbyterian Church of Durham
addressed the Y. M. C. A. Sunday aft
ernoon on the subject, "Choosing a
Life Work." We should enter, he
said, that sphere of service in which
we can use most advantageously and
for the highest ends the powers with
which we have been endowed. Every
profession has room for men of conse
crated ability and unselfish ideals.
Especially is this true of the Gospel
ministry which is today failing to gain
even enough recruits to offset the
normal losses from old age and death.
Every Christian student should earn
estly enquire, "Lord, what wilt thou
have me to do?"
OLDEST ALUMNUS DEAD

was in his 94th year. He was the
oldest alumnus of the university, an
uncle of Thos. S. Kenan, President of
the University Alumni Associaiion.
LOCKHART AND SCOTT DEFEAT BUR
GESS AND PETTEWAY
Resolved : That ; American municipalities
should adopt the commission form
i of government ,
i Before a crowd which looked almost
like a joint meeting of the freshman
and sophomore classer Messrs. R. W,
Scott, '13, and J.'C. Lockhart, '12, of
the Dialectic Society, won an unani
mous decision over Messrs. W, K. Pet
teway, '13 and C. K. Burgess, '12, of
the Philanthropic Society, upon the
query, Resolved: That American mun
icipalities should adopt the commission
form of government.
The affirmative sought to show that
no analogy existed between city gov
ernment and state government. Ward
representation does not correspond to
local representation in state govern
ment, was Mr. Petteway's contention.
The whole city is a local unit and
should elect its governing commission
ers as a unit. The city should be re
garded as a business corporation and
should have as its ruling body a com
mission which would be responsible for
this corporation. The negative told
of several cities in the United States
which had unsuccessfully tried the
commision form of government.
The negative denied that city gov
ernments should be regulated as cor
porations. Their functions are legis
lative and executive. The interests
of different parts of a city are differ
ent, and each interest should have
representation. Admittedly, the com
mission form of government had suc
ceeded in some small cities, but the
largest city which had succeeded with
it could be included in two wards of
Boston. The negative dented that
there was anything inherent in word
representation that was responsible
for the foul governmental conditions
in certain American cities.
