HOMER IN SECOND FRAME BY
LOWE IS DECISIVE FACTOR IN
FIRST CONTEST WITH VIRGINIA
Repetition of Easter Monday
Stunt Puts Game
CIRCUIT SWAT BREAKS TIE
Exciting Game Witnessed by Many
Visitors, including Visiting
Girls at Dances.
(By C. J. PARKER, Jr.)
Smashing out his second circuit
clout of the week, Robbins Lowe, al
ready dubbed "Babe" Ruth of the
University, broke up the game with
North Carolina State on Emerson
The timely drive, which came in
the eighth inning, broke the 4 to 4
deadlock and enabled Carolina to
walk away with a 6 to 4 victory. The
hit came as the climax in an exciting
game which was witnessed by a large
crowd including the visiting girls at
the Easter dances.
The score stood tied at 4 to 4.
Llewellyn was perched on third.
Lowe took two strikes and then
stepped into one of Murray's fast
ones, and sailed it into the woods
over the left field hedge. The ball
had gone out of sight and Umpire
White ruled it a home run, although
Lowe reached third on the hit.
State took the lead in the first
inning by getting next to "Lefty"
Wilson at opportune moments, how
ever Bryson came to the rescue and
finished the game in good shape.
Murray worked well, and with his
baffling assortment of curves and
fast balls fanned no less than ten
Carolina's first score came in the
third when R. Morris reached first
on Kirkpatrick's error and scored on
Wilson's long two-bagger. This tied
the count, but the next inning John
son put across another tally for State
on the combination of walk, sacri
fice and single.
In the fifth both teams scored
twice. State on successive hits by
Faucette, Norwood and Johnson,
aided by an error by Spruill. The
Tar Heels got away with vim and
filled the bases right at the start on
r Morris' single, Wilson's walk, and
Redfern's error of McDonald's
grounder. Fred Morris' single to
left brought in the two runs.
Carolina scored in the eighth when
Fred Morris tripled to right and
scored on Shirley's sacrifice fly. Then
came Llewellyn's singls and steal,
and Lowe's home run clout that put
the game on ice.

CAROLINA MAN WRITES
"WAKE UP, JONATHAN"
The Broadway stage success,
"Wake Up, Jonathan," a comedy
starring the celebrated Mrs. Fiske,
and now playing to full houses in
New York City, was written by
Hatcher Hughes, a Carolina alumnus
of the class of 1907, in collaboration
with Elmer A. Rice. Dr. John M.
Booker describes it "as a downright
good show, with superb acting by
Mrs. Fiske, with characters that are
real and witty, and with unexpected
yet natural situations, revealing cer
tain aspects of our life and traits of
our people good-naturedly and with
out a flurry."
Mr. Hughes began his academic
career at Carolina, graduated in
1907, held the position of instructor
of English for two years, resigning
it after he took his A. M. degree in
1909. During the war he was a cap
tain in the A. E. F. He is now teach
ing dramatic composition in Columbia
University. Mr. Hughes has another
play coming out later in the year, of
which he will be the sole author.
The Co-eds are organizing a Glee
Club, and although they will be un
able to accomplish very much this
year they are planning to give an
opera next 'year.
CHASE SPEAKS TO
President Chase Talks to Lower
Classmen in Chapel on "Free
dom and Liberty."
Dr. Chase talked to the Freshmen
in Chapel Friday morning, April 1st,
on "Freedom and Liberty." The
campus here believes in the freedom
of the individual, but what is its
value? The world has been learning
that liberty is worth what the men
who are living make it. There does
not exist in Russia today a develop
ment in the men of an appreciation
of how to utilize liberty. Our revolu
tionary forefathers felt an individual
responsibility and got together and
built up this country. Does demo
cracy work? This rests upon the in
dividual who is living under the
Dr. Chase threw the challenge to
the entire Freshman class in the
words, "Have you developed, or are
you developing an individual respon
sibility of permeating the freedom
of this campus?" Freedom itself is
a great condition under which to
live, but it may be either good or
bad according to the way in which it
is used. Men are no longer children
but have developed a responsibility.
You can't be free without being re
sponsible beings. If you have not so
developed you have not learned how
to be free. Freedom does not mean
absence of restraint, but responsv
bility. In the keeping of the individ
ual man are the ideals of this campus
"Liberty works in proportion as the
men develop an individual responsi
bility in building, maintaining, and
developing it. The greater the free
dom on the one hand the greater has
got to be the individual responsibility
of it all. They must go together."
TO GIVE 'PINAFORE'
Gilbert and Sullivan Comic Opera to
Be Given on the Hill May
28th and 29th.
"H. M. S. Pinafore, or The Lass
That Loved a Sailor," an entirely ori
ginal nautical comic opera will be
presented by the Music Department
on May 28 and 29. The book was
written by W. S. Gilbert and the
music by Arthur Sullivan. It is a
story which ridicules the British
Navy, and in many places suggests
the part politics played in the appoint
ment of the officers of the Navy. At
the time it was written Queen Vic
toria was trying to build up the Brit
ish Navy and make it the strongest
in the world. This opera of Gilbert
prevented him from ever being
knighted by her, but was knighted
by her successor. Sullivan, however,
who wrote the music, was knighted
by the queen.
This opera is the story of a lass
who loved a sailor. The scene is
laid on the Quarterdeck of H. M. S.
Pinafore, of Portsmouth. The sailor
is Ralph Rackstraw, an able seaman,
while the lass is Josephine, the daugh
ter of the captain of the boat. Hei'j
father wishes her to marry the First
Lord of the Admiralty, but she loves
Ralph and refuses. She refuse at
first to reveal her love for Ralph be
cause of the difference in their stand
ing. When the First Lord of the Ad
miralty learns of the love of the two
he orders Ralph to be thrown In
chains. It is learned that in infancy
Ralph and the Captain were exchang
ed, and that Ralph is Captain and
that the Captain is Ralph. The story
ends happily with Ralph receiving
Josephine as his bride.

State Papers Call Lowe the
"Babe" Ruth of North
BRYSON WORKING GOOD
Lowe's Homer, Bryson's Pitching,
and Excellent Fielding Factors
in 5 to 3 Victory.
(By J. J. WADE)
Robbins Lowe smashed out his
third home run in a like number of
games played in the second inning
of the Virginia game Saturday, and
his terrific drive which scored Spru
ill ahead of him was the decisive fac
tor in winning from the Virginians by
the score of 5 to 3.
Lowe had been praised in the state
papers as the "Babe" Ruth of North
Carolina for his clouting out two
homes in the first two games with
Davidson and North Carolina State
before his third remarkable hit in
the Virginia contest, but the hitting
of that third home run only gives
him more right to be called the col
lege "Babe" Ruth.
Bryson! started his first varsity
game in the box and his debut turned
but to be beautiful work, and he
held the Virginians in check through
out the contest although at times he
was hit rather hard and pretty field
ing by some of Carolina's aces help
ed to sew up the contest. Bryson
was opposed by Taylor, who also
pitched a nice game, and the pitch-
er's duel was about evenly divided in
honors, feach of the twirlers allow
ed seven hits and Taylor fanned five
and Bryson two.
In the second inning after Spruill
had walked, Lowe contributed his
home run drive, and gave Carolina
a two-run lead that was decisive in
the final score. The ball was driven
over the left field wall, and was the
first ball pitched to the Carolina
home run king. In the fourth frame
Carolina counted twice more when
Spruill laced out a single and Llew
ellyn's fly was dropped by Vance
after a long run, and later Taylor
pegged wild to first, Llewellyn
racing home. In the fifth inning
Carolina scored again on an infield
hit by Morris, a safe bunt by Spruill,
and a passed ball.
Carolina's classy infield made a
big impression on the two thousand
spectators attending the first of the
three game series between Carolina
and Virginia. McLean and McDon
ald accepted thirteen chances be
tween them without a bobble, Spru
ill had eleven put outs to his credit
without an error and Morris, on
third was forced to register the only
error for the Tar Heels. Fast and
clever fielding by the Carolina team
caused big applause at times during
the contest and Fetzer's men looked
good as gold on the Virginia field.
Lowe's home run drive was, of
course, the feature of the game.
Lowe registered two other such
homers this season at just the right
time, and he is largely responsible
for the three victories that Carolina
has annexed so far. His hitting will
be watched with increasing interest
and as to whether he will keep the
good work up or not is only left to
