PERSONALITY li CITY
Harvard Professor Makes First of
Three Lectures on Personality
in Politics Tuesday Night.
THE WEIL LECTURE SERIES
William B. Munro, professor of
the science of municipal government
at the University of Harvard, de
livered the first of the Weil lectures
Tuesday night in Gerrad Hall, taking
as his subject "Personality in City
Professor Mu.iro opened his re
marks by quoti lg the i Id adage to the
' effect that: A gentleman is easy to
recognize, but hard to describe." It
is the same with personality, that
thing which has caused so much '. f
ference in the government of cities
under the same administrative sys
tem. "The personality of the mayir
makes the difference," Professor
In support of his argument the
speaker cited the examples of notable
mayors, including Mayor John P.
Mitchell, of New York; Mayor Seth
Lowe, of New York; Mayor Gaynor,
of the same city; "Golden Rule"
Jones, of Toeldo, and others.
Mayor Mitchell was elected mayor
on a reform platform by a very large
majority and his administration is
one of the best in the history of New
York City, yet, when he sought re
election, he was decisively defeated.
"What is the reason for the defeat
of a mayor of this sort," asked Pro
fessor Munro. "It was because he
had lost his touch with the masses.
His administration had become too
organic. He had not that political
sagacity, which keeps a politician
ever in close contact with the mass
of voters. He had lost the common
touch in his search for administrative
efficiency. Hence honesty and effi
ciency are not the only qualities re
quisite for a successful mayor."
"Golden Rule" Jones, for many
years mayor of Toledo, was rather
the reverse of Mayor Mitchell. He
was Inclined to radicalism and never
formed or carried out any definite
policy and was continually fought by
the politicians, but never successfully
because of his personality and his
knowledge of the people. As he him
self expressed it, "Everybody is
i against me except the voters."
In concluding his lecture, Profes
: sor Munro stressed the importance of
city government, stating that the pop
ulations of the cities comprises more
than one-half of the total popula
tion of the country and it is in the
cities that the great national ques
tions are decided. The immigrants
flood the cities and there obtain their
first impression of American poli
tical institutions. It is not well for
them to be disillusioned by finding
the government marked by ineffi
ciency and corruption.
Misgovernment in the cities
spreads into the counties and thence
into the administration of the affairs
of the state. "The task of making
the cities is one of the greatest of
today," Professor Munro said, "for
he who makes the city makes the
DR. KNIGHT SPEAKS IN
CHAPEL ON EDUCATION
Talks in Vernacular of Baseball
and Applies His Analogy to
Speaking in chapel Monday morn
ing, April 18, Dr. Knight of the
Department of Education, talked in
the vernacular of baseball and ap
plied his analogy to education. He
told of a game that he witnessed some
time ago in which before a crowd of
18,000 people, the game was won by
a man named Jackson stealing home.
He said that the destination of the
baseball player was not third base.
Third base was only a way station
on the way to a destination which
was the home plate.
In applying this to education, Dr.
Knight said that two many students
were content to die on third base.
He said that there was a great tend
ency of the students of the gram
mar and high schools of the country
to stop after they have finished this
part of their education. He applied
his moral and said to the freshmen
that they should not be content to
have third base for their destination
in the game of getting an education.

At a recent meeting of the pro

makers, permanent directors were
chosen both for the plays on the pro
gram to be given here April 29th
and 30th, and also for the plays
which will immediately afterwards be
taken on the state tour.
Mr. McKie will, with the aid of
an assistant, direct John Terry's
"The Reaping." Mr. McKie will
also direct two of the plays to be
taken on the trip, namely, Paul
Green's "The Miser" and Miss Lay's
"When Witches Ride," all these be
ing under the general supervision of
Mr. Koch. Mr. Koch will give most
of his attention to the two comedies
on this program, and to "In Dixon's
Kitchen" when it goes on the trip.
LeGette Blythe's "The Chatham
Rabbit" 'will be directed by Mr.
Koch, assisted by Mr. Howell, Wil

Mr. McKie who was formerly in
charge of dramatics at the Univer
sity has been designated as director
of acting and in that capacity will
assist on all plays, giving most of
his attention to individual coaching
in character parts.
Mr. McKie is also workimj on a
plan which should be of great va'ue
in the casting of plays. A permanent
record is to be kept of all those who
show dramatic ability .in the try
outs. A person who shows up well
but is not selected for a part, will
thus be available when a similar
part in another play is to be cist.

TJ. C.A, CONFAB AT '
BLUE RIDGE IN JUNE
Conference Will be Largely Attend
ed by Students From Southern
The annual Southern student Y.
M. C. A. Conference will be held
at Blue Ridge, N. C, June 14-24.
This conference is under the general
supervision of the International Com
mittee of the Young Men's Christian
Associations, in cooperation with the
State committees of Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia,
Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Ten
nessee and Kentucky, and is formu
lated with the help of the Southern
Student Field Council of the South
ern States. Each day of the con
ference has its program of inspira
tion, recreation, rejuvination, and va
cation. The best men of the colleges,
both students and faculty, president,
and' religious and philosophical lead
ers attend this conference. Eighty
six professors and ministers from the
colleges of the South met at Blue
Ridge during the 1920 conference.
The morning hours of each day are
taken up in classes, discussions of
Y. M. C. A. problems, needs, etc. The
afternoons are given over to hikes,
athletics, and swimming. Blue Ridge
is less than a day's trip to Mt. Mitchel,
and there are many other places of
equal interest to which the delegates
may go. The chief interest in recre
ation is athletics. If there are enough
representatives to form full teams
there are contests between the col
leges. In 1920 Carolina lost to Wash
ington and Lee in baseball, 1 to 0.
Every kind of sport and games
are taken part in. The even
ings are given over to singing and
At Blue Ridge is a North Carolina
cottage owned jointly by N. C. Col
lege and Carolina. It has a large
open fire-place and is made as home

of twenty-five boys. The expenses
are the actual cost of the conference.
A campaign is now on to ge twenty
five Carolina men to attend the con
ference this summer. The men in the

Carolina Enters Contest The
Favorite For First Time In
BIGGEST GAME OF SEASON
Fetzer Has Had His Men Hard at
Work All The Week In Pre
paration. J By J. J. Wade.
On to Greensboro ! Captain Lefty
Wilson's Carolina varsity baseball
team pulled out of town today, and
is all ready for the annual fray with
Virginia tomorrow in the Gate City.
For the first time in several years
Carolina enters the annual contest
several times the favorite, and if Fet
zer's charges fail to bring home the
bacon the dope will be wholly upset.
The first game with Virginia, played
in Charlottesville on April 2nd, went
to the Blue and White team by the
score of 5-2. Bryson worked on the
mound and his peerless twirling
coupled with Lowe's home run, was
instrumental in downing the Vir
ginians on their home lot.
Fetzer has had his men hard at it
all the week in preparation for the
big Greensboro classic. This game is
always about the biggest baseball
game of the season in North Caro
lina and is a powerful drawing card.
The showirfg that the Carolina team
makes in this contest is always
watched with eager interest.
The week has been spent in prac
tice games, and in hitting and field
ing practices which have lasted till
nearly dark every afternoon. Tues
day Fetzer sent his team in against
the first year reserve team, allow
ing the latter aggregation six outs
in every inning. The varsity was
unable to connect with the ball as
it should have done, and the result
was that Patterson's team, although
working with the big advantage of
three extra outs per inning, made it
rather interesting for the varsity.
Fetzer worked Shirley on first base
and Lowe on third in the place of
Spruill and Fred Morris, respectively,
Tuesday afternoon. The trial change
in the line-up in this practice came
as a result of somewhat erratic field
ing by the two regulars in the David
son game last week. But the new
infield did not work so smooth as the
old in their try out together Tues
day and before the afternoon was
over Fetzer sent Spruill back to first
and Fred Morris, who had taken
Lowe's place in right field, exchanged
places with the latter.
It is believed that the regular in
field with Spruill on first, McLean
on second, McDonald on short, and
Fred Morris at third, will be used
against the Virginians tomorrow. In
that case Lowe will keep to his posi
tion in right field, Shirley will re
main in center, and Sweetman or
Lewellyn, if he isn't on the mound,
will play the left garden. Casey
Morris will, of course, perform be
hind the plate.
There is some speculation as to
just who Fetzer will send in the
box. The three first string pitchers,
Wilson, Lewellyn, and Bryson, are
all in good shape and anxious to get
the call. Bryson already has one
victory to his credit over the Vir
ginians this season and it is not prob
able that he will again be used.
Either Captain Wilson or Lewellyn
is expected to do the twirling ar.d
