Fetzer's Charge Are Gi-Ven
A Set BacK. 'Bv WaKe Forest
Ragged Fielding by Carolina and Heavy Hitting by Wake Forest
Carolina 's state championship pros
pects were given a severe jolt on Emer
son field Tuesday afternoon, when Wake
Forest bludgeons connected for 11 hits
and the locals had an off-day in the
fiold the result being a 9 to 3 victory
for the Old Gold and Black. The Bap
tists supported Stanley Johnson with
air tight fielding, while the Tar Heels
were over eager and blundered frequent
ly although contributing their share of
the game's thrills. A noticeable fea
ture of the contest was the abundance
of three baggers, four by Wake Forest
and three by Coach Fetzer's outfit.
Captain Stringfield started the ball
rolling for his team in the first inning
with a single over second. Boylin fan
ned and Poole was thrown out at first
by Casey Morris, the Baptist shortstop
going to second on the play. Clarke,
the .457 hitting outfielder, cracked out
a long one to right that went for three
bases and sent Stringfield across with
the initial score of the game. Weird
throws by Morris and Bonner allowed
Clarke to scamper home a moment later.
Johnston walked but Stanley Johnson
lifted an easy fly to Sweetman.
After two men were down in the
first, Bonner drove out a long triple to
left field and scored on Shirley's time
ly single to center. Boylin caught the
latter stealing at second for the final
. Arnette opened the second frame with
a single, went to the midway station
on a wild pitch, took third when Fere
bee errored a grounder, and tallied on
Stringfield 's sacrifice which the Caro
lina pitcher also fumbled. Jones scored
on Boylin 's infield out, but Starling
ended further Wake Forest hopes with
a pretty running catch of Poole's foul
Neither side scored until the last half
of the third. With two out, Bonner hit
safely and crossed the plate on a three
base lick by "Mule" Shirley. Caro
lina added another marker in the fifth
on McLean's triple and a neat sacrifice
by Bonner. Although he could have
caught the batter at first, Johnson play
ed the ball to the plate and McLean
was safe on a close play. Shirley
grounded out, third to first, Morris
drew four wild ones, but Sweetman end
ed the Tar Heels' scoring for the day
with an infield tap to Stringfield.
After Greason grounded out to Shir
ley and Stringfield missed the third
strike, Jack Boylin took one of Fere
bee's shoots in the Bide and went to
third on Poole's single. The latter was
safe at second when McDonald errored,
Clarke reaching first. Johnny John
ston singled to left center and when
Bonner handled the return clumsily,
three runners counted.
Stringfield 's single and three baggers
by Poole and Clarke were responsible
for two more Baptist runs in the ninth.
The latter was caught at the plate try
ing to stretch his hit into a homer,
Carmichael to McDonald to Morris.
Ferebee struck out Johnston, the last
man facing him. A valiant attempt to
stage a rally on the part of McGee,
McDonald and McLean failed and the
damage was over.
Clarke's catch of an extremely long
fly by Starling in the fourth, and fine
fielding by Arnette and Stringfield were
the high lights of the visitors' play
ing. A fast double play, Shirley to

TAR HEELS DEFEAT WAKE
FOREST IN TENNIS MATCH
Carolina Takes Every Set, Both in Sin
gles and Doubles, in Match
The varsity tennis team administered
a stinging defeat to the Wake Forest
net men last Wednesday afternoon. Not
a set was dropped from the six matches
A cold wind , which lasted the whole
afternoon, generally lowered the q'.ial
ity of plav, as it made for stiffened
fingers and forced all shots to be play
so as to allow a greater margin for
error. Wake Forest was decidedly un
lucky in not having her strongest man,
Stringfield, alone. In his absence.
Blount played first man.
- Captain Coxe won his match against
Blount without any trouble, although
he played a considerably weaker game
than he would have played had lie been
in practice. Track has kept him busy
for some time. He played a baek-court
game during his singles match, sliced
on his forehand, and drove on his back
hand. A few very pretty rests saved
the match from monotony.
The closest of tho singles matches
was that between Jernigan and Town
send. Jernigan played a consistent net
game, and won 6-2, 6-4.
Townsend and Blount gave Jernigan
and Coxe a little trouble in the doubles,
and pushed the score to 6-4, 6-4.
The team left Thursday for Atlanta,
where it will on the 11th and 12th
enter in the Southern Intercollegiate
Championship tournament. This tour
nament will probably be a fight for hon
ors between Carolina and Georgetown.
Davidson will be played on the 14th.
The 15th, 16th and 17 will be spent in
Washington, where Georgetown, George
Washington, and Catholic University
will be played. Coxe, Jernigan, Bruton
and Smith will make the trip, and will
probably play in the order named.
Scores for the Wake Forest match:
Coxe (Carolina) vs. Blount (Wake
ForeBt), 6-1, 6-2.
Jernigan (Carolina) vs.
(Wake Forest), 6-2, 6-4.
Johnston (Carolina), vs

May Issue of Alumni
Review Is Off Press
The May issue of the Alumni Review
came from the press during the past
week. It contains the usual notes of
interest to the alumni, and judging by
the May issue, the Alumni Association
is exceedingly active.
On the front cover of the magazine
appears a prospective of the new Chapel
Hill Episcopal church, as it will look
The new million and a half dollar
building program approved by the build

of the Review. This, with au account
of a get-together of the Philadephia
chapter of the University Alumni, a
review of high school week at the Uni
versity, and the usual spring baseball

of the month.
The item of most interest to students
and alumni alike concerns the "Won

Kalif of Kavak To
Be Repeated Monday
"The Kalif of Kavak," which was
so successfully produced by the mem
bers of Wigue and Masque in the win
ter term, is to be repeated in Memorial
hall on Monday night, May 14. A
large number of students and faculty
people have requested this repetition
and we are assured that the second per
formance will be even better than the
first one was. The cast remains the
same but a number of changes have
been made in the course of the show
itself, which strengthens it from both
tho dramatic and musical standpoints.
Immediately after the performance
here the new elections to Wigue arid
Masque will be announced and plans
will be announced for next year's pro
gram. It is anticipated that a cash
prize will be offered for next year's
show, as was done this year.
JUNIOR CLASS SMOKER
The Junior class will have its last
smoker of tho year Tuesday night,
Swain Hall at 9 o'clock. On this
night the anual elections of the Sen
ior class officers will be held, and
therefore it is desirable that a large
number be present in order to secure
a representative vote. The program
committee is planning an attractive
schedule of events which should meet
with the approval of all.
Four high school baseball teams re
main in the east and four in the west,
in the high school elimination series
conducted by the University Extension
Division. Durham, Ellerbee, Woodland
and Elizabeth City are the "big four"
who have been successful thus far in
the swamps sections of the Tar Heel
commonwealth, while Shelby, Charlotte,
Pomona and Winston-Salem have all
emerged victorious from the battles
fought in the wild and woolly west.
The remaining elimination games in
the east are scheduled to be played to
day, when Durham meets Ellerbee in
Ellerbee and Woodland crosses bats
with Elizabeth City in the seacoast
city. The winners of these two games
will travel to Chapel Hill Wednesday
to fight it out for the eastern cham
pionship. In the west, Shelby and Charlotte will
play at Gastonia today, with Pomona
and Winston-Salem meeting at High
Point. The winners of these two games
will play Wednesday at Davidson Col
lege for the title of the west, unless
Winston and Charlotte win out. In
that case, the combat will be staged
The final game for the state baseball
championship will be played on May 19
on Emerson field.
In the elimination series thus far the
feature playing has been furnished by
Barbee, pitcher for the Pomona nine,
who has struck out an average of 15
men in the championship games to date.
All teams are strong, however, and spec
ulation is unsafe.
All of the eight teams remaining in
the fray are priming themselves for
the home stretch to the championship.
Men formerly well known in college
baseball circles of the state are coach
ing the high school lads. Claude Joyner,
former Carolina pitcher in the early
days of Lefty Wilson's regime; Dick
Gurley and Dick Kirkpatrick, of State,
and other former collegiate notables are
among the high school coaches. Joyner
is at the helm in Winston-Salem, Gur
ley at Shelby, and Kirkpatrick at Char
lotte. E. H. McBane, formerly of Guil
ford College's nine, is coach at Pomona.
B. M. Watkins, formerly of Wake For
est, is Durham's coach; while L. B.
Gunter and R. W. Holmes, both Uni
versity alumni, are coaching the nines
at Woodland and Elizabeth City The
high school teams are particularly for
tunate in getting the best possible
coaching this season, as the foregoing

ELECTION BY BIG MAJORITY
Carl Weigand Defeated by Vote of 314
to 76 in Biennial
Mayor W. S. Roberson was re-elected
by a vote of 314 to 76, in the biennial
elections held in Chapel Hill last Tues
day. The present incumbent was op
posed in the mayoralty campaign by
Carl Weigand, young lawyer of Chapel
Hill and a University graduate.
Mayor Roberson has served Chapel
Hill as its mayor for the past eight
years, and his re-election was not un
expected. " Registration books showed that only
eight students of the University voted
in the campaign. Several additional
students presented themselves at the
polls, but their votes were successfully
challenged by Mayor Roberson 's sup
porters. In the aldermanic election there were
three tickets and 13 candidates. The
vote ran anywhere from 292 for D. D.
Carroll to a single vote polled by Mrs.
G. K. G. Henry. D. D. Carroll, G. M.
Braune, J. M. Cheek, R. P. Andrews and
H. A. Whitfield will compose the town
board of aldermen for the next two

A. & E. BAND CONCERT
The A. and E. band, consisting of 48
pieces, will play a complimentary pro
gram on Emerson field Saturday after
noon at 2:30, just before the Carolina
State College game. The Band is being
brought to Chapel Hill through the
kindness of our Raleigh alumni assoeia
tion. It has the reputation of being
one of the best college bands in the
South and the University is indebted to
the Raleigh alumni for making this
WolfpacK Vays First Visit
To Emerson Field Saturday
Fetzer's Men Will Fight Fiercely to Redeem Themselves After
Defeat at Hands of Wake Forest.
The Wolfpack pays its first visit of
tho season to Emerson field tomorrow
afternoon. The marauders are coming
with blazing eyes and bared fangs,
dominated by an intense thirst for Tar
JJeel blood, and determined to carry
hark the proverbial bacon to their West
Kali igh lair. Excited to fury by their
ici-rut defeat at the hands of Tr'nity.
the visitors will fight to the last ditch
for victory and a frantic clutch on
state championship honors.
Coach Fetzer will have his team prim
ed for a taste of that satisfaction
which conies only with a win over Vir
ginia, Trinity, or State.- A repetition
of the Blue and White's 2 to 1 victory
over Harry Hartsell's mighty crew is
not at all improbable. The nine will
have the moral support of the student
body tomorrow, as it has never had
that needed help this season.
Carolina still has an opportunity to
secure a strong claim for the state
championship. With wins over State,
Trinity and Wake Forest in the re
maining games, only a third contest
with Trinitv and Wake Forest could
settle the resulting complexities. Twolve
days will intervene between tomorrow s
battlo and the next game on the Tar
Heels' schedule, the Wake Forest strug
gle of May 28. In that time Fetzer's
machine may be perfected.
It is likely that Coach Hartsell will
start Allen on tho mound tomorrow,
while the Wolfpack will probably face
Bryson again. Curtis has lost his last
three games against Carolina by small
margins and for this reason he may be
given an opportunity to glorify his rec
ord with an avenging performance on
the local diamond. Both Allen and
Curtis were treated without sympathy
by the Methodists Monday, and another
bitter dose of the same medicine is
apparently awaiting these slab artists.

ACACIA TO GIVE DANCE
Coach Hob Fetzer and TracK.
Team to South Atlantic Meet
Carolina Should Show Up Well in Several Events With South
Invitations have been extended by
North Carolina chnpter of Acacia fra
ternity for its formal spring danco Fri- j
dav evening. Mav 18. The dance will
be given in their chnpter house just
outside of Chapel Hill towards Durham.
Acacia is a Masonic fraternity having
quite a number of members in the local
chnpter. Their danco given every
spring is always looked forward to with
pleasure. The Acacia ns are said to be
the best, kind of host.
Coach Fetzer left with 12 men in tow
enroute for Richmond where the Tar
Heel track team will engage in the
South Atlantic track meet. Over 15
institutions are already entered in this,
the biggest 6vent of its kind held in
North Carolina, South Carolina and Vir
ginia each year, and tho contest for
places will be a hot one.
The Tar Heels, unless gobs of dope
are Bpilled on the Richmond track,
should end up in fourth place. This
will be the best showing made by the
Carolina track team made in years.
They will score probably between 18
and 25 points. Since so many schools
are entered, and thus such great chances
for dark horses, it is nearly impossible
to make any forecasts except in a few
events where the men are really out
standing. Fpr instance, Georgetown's
two miler, who ran it in the Olympics
If Abernethy is going good today
there is no reason why he shouldn't
beat Potts of V. P. I. in the javelin.
Mr. Potts has been hurling it around
170 feet, and thinks this a very good
mark, but the fact remains that he has
n't worked as consistently as Aber
nethy. Purser made a good showing in the
two mile last year and will probably
take second place in this event. His
time will most likely be around 9:45.
Hanson, also, made an excellent showing
in the mile, and he will win second
place in this, running the four laps in
It's hard to tell what Moore and
Sinclair will do in the dashes. Sinclair
is hawked by a straightaway on the 220
and probably will not do much in this
event. Given a good start in the hun
dred, either Moore or Sinclair will win
Tench Coxe will not be in Richmond
for the middle distances, since he has
to be in Atlanta for the Southern In
tercollege Conference tenis meet on that
date, and that loaves the quarter and
half up to Milstcad and Whitaker,
What they will do is hard to tell, but
both are liable to bo hoard from before
it's all over, especially Milstead on the
Lacy Ranson if going good should
place in the pole vault, while Woodard
and Yarborough will have an opportun
ity to make a roputation for themselvee

Plans Ready For The
New Episcopal Church
The town of Chapol Hill will soon
be the proud possessor of a beautiful
new Episcopal church, judging from
the plans of the dosigncr, Hobart B
Upjohn, an architect of note.
The church has been designed first as
a typical village church and second as
a type of Perependicular Gothic, a
style much used by designers of Prot
estant Episcopal churches during the
last decade. The building will be of
stone and will match the present church
in Color and texture. The old church
building will be used as the chapel un
der these plans, thus retaining in con
crote form the memories and traditions
of the parish. On the dominant tower
of the church the use of a spire will

The seating capacity will be about
450, with a choir ample for 36 singers.

Dr. I. F. Lewis, of tho University of
Virginia, lectured to the Elisha Mitchell
Scientific Society Tuesday night on
"The Age and Area Hypothesis" in
The Ago and Area Hypothesis is a
conception which accounts for the dis
tribution of plants over the earth by
saying that the most numerous and
widely distributed forms are the oldest..
While many exceptions have been found
to this rule, somo extraneous influence
has usually been found to account for
tho divergence. The hypothesis is one
that was recently put forward by the
British botanist, Willis. Willis collect
ed the data for his proofs from exten-.
sive statistical investigations, chiefly
in New Zealand. However, scientist
throughout the globe have been taking;
much interest in tho hypothesis, and
much investigation, in tho past fow
years, has been going on.
In his talk, Dr. Lewis used a good
many charts, prepared after consider
ing the statistics of Willis and others.
He talked plainly and in a popular man
ner, and brought the matter home to
the North Carolina scientists by men
tioning several indigenous plants that
come under the jurisdiction of the hy
pothesis, particularly the Venus Fly
Trap, of Eastern North Carolina.
After Dr. Lewis 's paper the report of
the nominating committee was read and
accepted without a change. The offi
cers of the society for 1923-24 are as
follows: President, A. S. Wheeler; vice
presideut, R. E. Coker; permanent see
rotary, J. M. Boll; recording secretary

After the election of, these officers the
