Large Crowd of Students Gather to Wei

Four hundred of Carolina's stann

chest and most loyal students gathered
in Chapel Monday night" at the call o
Red Stewart. The meeting was neith
er a joumcation nor a iunerei, and
theistudent sentiment in the meeting
was exactl y expressed by Prof. Gra-
hath when he said that he came neith
er to bury Caesar nor to praise him,"
Rey. Mr. Hogue fittingly expresed it
as sanctification meeting. But any
way. the crowd was there to let the
football team know that the student
body was behind it and with it through
defeat and victory alike.
Dr. Royster. "the official Knocker"
ofiered no excuses for the defeat, but
declared that we were squarely beaten
and should take it like men. He pro
ceeded to knock the knockers and to
roast the kickers in the University and
give some plain talk on the football
situation. He was followed by Roach
Stewart, who spoke along the same
line. Stewart exploded the pent up
Carolina spirit whon he said that '.'our

men, but the defeat of the University

"The Function of the State in the
Larger Life of the Nation," by H. E.
Sjacy is the title of the winning ora
tion in the contest for the Wiley P.
Mangum medal at the 1910 commence
ment. In it Mr. btacy indicates the-
e jils t'hat would result from the appli
cation of either of the two extreme in
terpretations of our system of govern
ments 1. That the States are supreme
in their individual capacity, and are
united only for protection; or 2. that
the federal government if responsible
and supreme in all matters.
After tracing the development of
our sj stem or dual democracy ..Mr.
Stacy discusses its application to the
present problems of the control and re
gulation of our complex industrial life.
He assures us that the application
of the dual system of government will
prove efficient in the solution of our
industrial proplems as it has already
proved efficient in the regulation of
our social and industrial life.
Dr. Royster's article, "On College
Discipline," is of special interest to
those who are interested in student
government. In this article Dr. Roy
ster contrasts the system of regulating
students deportment by petty regula-
ions in vogue here fifty years ago with

Strong Discourse on the Kingship of Christ
' I First of Series of Univer
The first of the series of the Uni
versity sermons for this . year was
preached in Gerrard Hall Sunday
morning by Dr.. Walter W. Moore
President of the Union Theologica
Seminary at Richmond, Va. The large
audience that filled the Chapel, ; even
to the gallery, heard a discourse which
for grace of, manner and for power and
clarity of thought, was considered
Dr. Moore chose as his text the fina
clause of Acts. 17:7 "saying tha
there is another kiner. one; Jesus.?' In
developing the subject of Christ's king
ship, he recounted the events of his
life, His humble origin in Nazareth
His obscure life as a carpenter, His
teaching and claim to kingship,
the accusations asrainst him of blas
phemy and sedition, and his final cru
cifixion. ' .
Continuing he said in part:
This event of Christ's crucifixion
caused little stir or excitement. It is
sooken of by no great historian of
the time except by Tacitus who, with
an apology for mentioning a matter
that he considers of so little conse
ouence. eives to it a space of three
lines. And yet in three centuries the
words that he had spoken and the in
fluence of his life had spread through
means of his humble followers until he
was indeed king, not ot tne Jews, as
the Romans taunted him with being
but of the Romans as well. His Ro
man persecutor had said, "I know no
king but Caesar." Three hundred
years later Caesar himself, Constan
tine the Great, said, "I know no king
How will you expluin this fact? How
will you account for Christ' supremacy?
Was he supreme in intellect? Yes; but
that is not sufficient to explain his do
minion. Charles Dickens said that
Christ's parable of the Prodigal Son
was the most touching and powerful
story in literature. Coleridge, when
asked what he thought the most in
spiring piece of literature, answered,
"The Beatitudes." It has been said
that Christ, without arms, has con
quered more men than Alexander, Ca
sar, and Napoleon.
Christ's greatest claim to kingship
however, is his moral supremacy. We
have the testimony of those who knew
tiim best that his life was pure, just
and holy. Christ s great inspiration
or us is a moral one. He drives all
baseness from the heart he enters.
Another realm in, which Christ is su-
preme is tnat ot oenencence. Jrie is
today the greatest force for the uplift
ing of humanity in the world. Christ
ianity was the power that civilized
Rome. It softened the wild barbarians
that later captured the city. It has
changed the position of woman from
servitude to honor; it has given a new
meaning to childhood; it has made
provision for the weak, the downtrod
den, the unfortunate.
I wish we might leave off - specula
ting about the disputed points of the
Bible, such as the revelation, Genesis
and geology, Joshua and astronomy,
and think of what Christianity has
done for humanity and what it is doing
in the world today.
WORK OF, THE Y. "M. C. A.
NOTED INCREASE IN MEMBERSHIP
i BIBLE CLASSES UNDER WAY
Splendid Work by the Different Depart
: . ments in Aiding New and
The Y. M. C. A. of : the University i
is just now entering upon what prom-
ises to be, in many respects, its most
successful year. All departments of
the' Association work have been kept
up jto the usual standard, and in some
of its phases there has been marked
prgress, and new records made; There
are about as many men enrolled in Bi
ble; study as there were this time last
year. The membership is larger thani
at the same time last year, and in the;i
next two weeks, the Association hopes .
to swell the ranks of its member ; to
the largest enrollment in -its history;
J The board forming the -cabinet this .
year is composed of men who are not
sensational in their ..efforts, butwhov
are level-headed, earnest and unselfish ..
in their service. The Y. , M. C. ; A. is ,v;
peculiarly fortunate in having, such v
men as its officers. ,; . . , . .
The success of the Y. M., C.A. is in ,
part shown by the number of men jwho
halve joined . the organization Over
three hundred men have signed (ht ap-,,
plication blanks, and have become v
members of the Association. - This is .
an increase over last year at this time ,
of i more than thirty men. Last year ,
some forty or fifty men joined later on
in the fall, and about the same number ... .
came into the Association after the
Christmas recess. This, means then,
that there will be . over four hundred
members of the Association this year
the largest enrollment in its history.
The Bible Study department too has ,.
a j promising beginning. Over M three . ,
hundred men have enrolled in the Bible
Study groups and are engaged in Bible
Study. The success of the Bible
Study department here last year caused
the International Committee of the Y.
M C. A. to place the University of
North Carolina Young Mens Christian
Association among the best in America.
The reading, room in the Y. M. C.

stocked this year. The following pa
pers have very generously offered nine
months subscription: The Virginia
