Tenche Coxe Makes Fast Time
in Quarter and Half
(By THE HAY-SHAKER)
With Carolina '8 band playing for the
first time at a track meet, and before
the largest crowd 1500 that ever wit
nessed a dual meet in the state, Bob
Fetzer's track team whipped the much
touted State College squad by a score
of 78 to 48 Friday afternoon.
It was a great contest. The hardest
crew that the Carolina squad has met
so far. But the Tar Heel team and its
band which also had improved over
past performances was equal to the oc
casion, and experienced little difficulty
in disposing of a team that one of the
state papers proclaimed as a 15 point
winner in the meet.
Undoubtedly it was the best track
meet, from every viewpoint, that has
been held in North Carolina. And as a
result, one more state record was brok
en. No, it wasn 't the javelin record ;
it was the pole vault. And Lacy Ban
son, a member of North Carolina's Ro
yal track family, is the holder of the
new record of 11 feet 5Y2 inches.
The track was fast and despite the
fact that a stiff wind was blowing the
time with the exception of the 100 yard
dash was the best seen on this track
in some time.
Was the Hay-Shaker's Dope Spilled?
The Hay-Shaker, the Tar Heel track
reporter had just as good a day as the
track team. Last Tuesday he predicted
that Carolina would win firsts in the
440, 880, one mile, 220 low hurdles,
broad jump, javelin, pole vault and one
or the dashes. He prc-inctnl that oiat -College
would win fust places in tin
two mile, the high jump, discus, shot
put, high hurdles, and one of the dash
es most likely the 100.
As the meet ran off, the Hay-Shaker
lost out in only one event, the high
jump. He would not have lost here if
State College officials had measured Sat
tcrfield's jump in the Davidson meet
correctly. They measured it from the
stands instead of the middle of the
bar and that made a difference of some

Fabian Franklin Stimulates Thought in
the Field of American
The Weil lectures for 1!)23 are now
a mutter of history. Mr. Fabian Frank
lin has received high commendation from
his hearers for the messages that he
brought, and although his audiences were
small he has stimulated much thought
in the field of the particular phases of
American citizenship which he presented.
The second lecture was entitled "The
Function of Leadership," and was re
stricted to the representative type of
government. To he a leader in a de

May 18th, in Memorial Hall. As yet
there has been uo definite announcement
as to who will deliver the address for

ever, has been extended an invitation
to speak at the annual affair. Mr. Par

Each year it lias been the custom of
the Tar Heel to pick as near as possible
the final selection, or at least to men
tion the most likely candidates for the
honor. This is a very difficult job. In
picking winners of first places in a
track meet or something of that nature
the task is altogether different. In
view of these conditions it is with much
hesitancy that we try to make the selec

usually picks men who stand out in

LAUNDRY SEEKS HIGHER
EFFICIENCY IN ITS WORK
417,425 Pieces Laundered Last Quartet
Paulsen Looks to Raleigh Con
ference for New Ideas.
That the laundry is an efficient and
a very systematically operated institu
tion on the campus is generally recog
nized, but the extent of this eflicioncy
is not so generally known. Just to get
an idea, the superintendent, Mr. Paul
sen, tells us that during last quarter
he laundreed 417,425 pieces of work, or
32,901 pieces per week, and on several
thousand pieces of this work he found
it necessary to sew buttons. The fact
that the University Laundry turns out
more work according to the size of its
working force than any other laundry
in the state is almost undisputable.
The office force keeps a set of records
of the most minute transactions and
their Bystem of bookkeeping is just as
efficient and modern as most any bank.
Superintendent Paulsen says that he
is at all times seeking some way to
increase efficiency and cut his rates at
the same time. For this purpose he ex
pects to go to Washington, D. C, on
May 10 to attend the first regional con
vention of the National Laundry Asso
ciation. Here he will have an oppor
tunity to investigate and study several
new systems which are undergoing thor
ough tests now. He will go to Baloigh
next Tuesday where he will meet dole
Rates ffom laundries over the stato to
discuss several new systems which aro
proving highly satisfactory In North
should he succumb to the apparent desires
of his constituents."
.Mr. Franklin called attention to the
initiative and referendum, and the rea
sons for its failure. "There has long
been a discontent for representative gov
ernment, and not without foundation.
The initiative and referendum would
have made everything subservient to the
will of the masses, mid would have been
the most perfect form of democracy. Its
cardinal fault was the hick of any per
sonal responsibility, which is of supreme
moment at times. It would be folly to
leave to the moods of the people such
questions as foreign relations, and mone
tary values and standards. Men in our
government must be allowed to use their
own judgment. Even the net of obstruc
tion, so annoying at times in parliamen
tary bodies, has its virtues."
In the last lecture, entitled "The Spirit
of Liberty," Mr. Franklin showed that
the rule of the people, founded on reason
and liberty as it is. is callable of de
generating into tyranny. He used the
18th Amendment as an exnmple of this,
showing how it destroys the liberty of
both the individual and the states. "You
may say that any government entails
the sacrifice of personal liberty. True
enough, to an extent; but the 18th amend
ment attempts to destroy moral freedom
"The real danger to the spirit of lib
erty," he concluded, "arises from a desire
for greater perfection. This desire is
perfectly legitimate in itself, but it goes
too far. The attention is centered on
minor imperfections, and the great un
derlying principles are forgotten."
Prof. B. B. Kendrix, of Columbia Uni
versity, made an address to students
interested in history last Thursday
morning in Saunders Hall. He spoke
on the South 's political stand during
the Civil War. The Professor defended
the South in its belief in State's Rights,
but pointed out the weakness of its
stand in regard to slavery.
W. A. White, of the. Beading Iron
company, Beading, Pa., read an inter
estinir .paper to the Civil Engineering
Socioty recently on the manufacture of
steel and wrought iron.
After thinking of all the meu who
would be possibilities for the Fleece, it
seems the best way to make the selec
tion would be to get men who would
correspond as nearly as possible with
last year's choice. The men "tapped"
last year were as follows: A. M. Mc
Donald, C. U. Smith, C. L. Moore, J. J.
Wade, C. C. Poindexter, C. M. Llewel
lyn, V. V. Young, E. E. Rives, M. W.
Xash and A. M. Mi-Gee.
"Monk" McDonald was picked last
year as an all-round athlete. In look
ing for a mau who can most satisfac
torily fill such a general requirement,
our attention is at once brought upon
"Casey" Morris. Here is a man who
has been honored by captaincies in two
major sports an honor that occurs very
rarely. As star end on the varsity foot
bp 11 team for the past two seasons he
won a place on the mythical All-South
Atlantic team both years. At the end
of this season be was chosen to suc
ceed Grady Pritchard as captain of the
Carolina eleven. This year it is the
"mighty Casey" who captains our
baseball nine. In scholarship "Casey"
ranks well for a man who has as much
time taken up as he has. Certainly he

A rather unusual pleasure was visited
on the chapel attendants Thursday
morning when Rev. B. F. McLendon ap
peared with a very vigorous speech.
Mr. McLendon is an evangelist of the
Billy Sunday type, who has won the
sobriquet of "Cyclone Mack" because
of his breezy and volcanic manner of
speaking. He hails originally from
somewhere in South Carolina, near Bon-
nettwille. He compares himself now.

dog by death, contents himself by stat-

I feed is home sweet home to me."
The speaker gave an interesting ac-
ount of his first sermon, and the con-
sequences theroof. "I had spent some
time in a preacher factory," ho said,
"and 1 was notified one night that I
was to preach. In preparing my sermon
I did not confine myself to the Bible,
but gleaned happy thoughts from all
he major and minor poets, historians
and writers of all times. I had the

until I found that I had omitted one of
my wet climaxes. Then T went back
and tried to work up to it again, and
spoiled the whole thing."
He then pointed out that the cause
for his failure was a lack of enthusi
asm, and that he determined to be sin
cere at least. Ho drew many illustra
tions of the value of enthusiasm from
the Bible, and one or two from else
where. "In my boyhood I was fond
of playing with turtles," he said. "Of

and tail and refuse to move. Then I

The University building committee
t a recent meeting selected the site of
he old Eben Alexander homo, next to
the Episcopal church on the east side,
as the location of the woman's build-

of the trustees lately voted $100,000.
The woman's building is not to be con

ver. It is to look more like a home,
and to be modelled as such both outside
nd inside as far as possible.
With the tearing down of the Alex-

it was built from funds derived from
ho sale of public lands which had been
rantod the University by the state in

When the University was reopened
fter the Civil War in 1875, the place
was occupied by John dcB. Hooper.
