THE STATE HIGH SCHOOL
CHAMPIONSHIP WILL BE
Durham Won Over Woodland in
East and Pomona Over
Shelby in West.
SEVERAL GOOD PITCHERS
Saturday the 18th day of May, will
gaze down upon the culmination of the
state-wide high school basoball cham
pionship series when Durhnm, champi
ons of the East, meets Pomona, cham
pions of the West, on Emerson field.
Pomonn after having run a meteor
like course in the West, came through
with sectional honors when she defeated
Pick Gurley's Shelby team last Tues
day at Davidson. Durham emerged
victorious over Woodland Wednesday
on the University diamond and won
the right to represent the East in the
Shelby was defeated at Davidson on
Tuesday in an 11-inning game by a
score of 4 to 3. Barbee, the Pomona
pitcher, walked away with all the glory
of the contest by connecting for three
doubles, scoring two runs and whiffing
13 men. He won his own game in the
11th when, after having doubled, he
went to third on an infield out and
McKee, the opposing pitcher, also
fanned 13 men.

In a pitcher's duel Wednesday on
Emerson field Durham wrested the east
ern laurels from Woodland by a 4 to 1
score. Each pitcher allowed only four
singles apiece, scratch and thorough
bred combined, but Cherry was accorded
better support than Joyner.
Durham scored one run in the second
inning and three in the third. The first
tally came when Holt, after having got
on base by error, was sacrificed to sec

successive passed., balls. In the third

then beat out a mighty feeble infield

SEVERAL ATTRACTIONS Oil
The Alumni Program of This Com
mencement Has Promise of
Being the Best Ever.
The alumui program for the 12Sth
University commencement is by far the
most attractive of any of the past
years. The whole time is full of events
that will be of interest not only to for
mer students but also to those who
were not students as well. For instance,
this is the first time, certainly in recent
years, that one of the Carolina-Virginia
baseball games will be played during
Not only will there be the game be
tween the old rival institutions which
alwnys interests any old student of
Carolina, but there will also be a game
betweon the "Wonder Team" of 1903
and a team composed of the present
faculty. The old team that won the
Southern Championship will be back
intact for the game with the faculty.
As yet it is not known just who will
compose the faculty team but it can be
said that there are some mighty good
players in the faculty.
Another interesting feature ofthe
program will be the popular Univer
sity Quartet of 1902. This quartet
gained much popularity in its day at
Carolina, and its rejuvenation will be
a part of the commencement that should
interest all those alumni who were in
school while these singers were in their
prime. They will sing at the alumni
luncheon at Swain hall on Tuosday of
Besides these attractions there will
be a performance of the Carolina Play
makers at 8:30 on Tuesday night. Sev
eral of the classes will hold reunions
during the course of the week. Those
classes hnving reunions are as follows
'53, '63, '83, '93, '98, '03, '08, '13, '18

ALL-STATE TEAM PICKED
By TAR HEEL REPORTER
Carolina Has Two Men, Trinity Five,
Wake Forest Two, and State and
Davidson One Each.
(By HANK PARKER)
In picking an all-state intercollegi
ate baseball team it is readily apparent
that the ball club of Trinity College
is the most fertile of the several fields
from which the roster of such a club
must be chosen. The Methodists have
so far been defeated but once in the
state and have made a victorious march
through the South, losing their only
game to Auburn which they later
avenged. Beyond a doubt their pitch
ing staff has been the most consistent
in North Carolina, and English, C.
Smith, and Ormand have stood out in
their respective positions. Next to
Trinity the University must be given
a berth and following her comes Wake
The one and only "Mule" Shirley is
undisputably the peer of first basemen
and may be regarded as a fixture at
that station. Crawford of Davidson is
our second choice.
At second English takes the prize at
a cake-walk, covering an immense
amount of territory with ease, fielding
consistently and ranking well as a bats
man. McDonald must be moved to sec
ond base on the second team. "Monk"
has been guilty of erroring rather free
ly this year but none of his rivals have
borne the white flower of a blameless
record in this respect and his dependa
bility at bat gives him preference.
C. Smith, the Trinity third baseman,
is easily the best in the state. Ar
uette of Wake Forest ranks close behind
Vann Stringfield, who completes his
fourth season in college ball this year,
has justly earned for himself the al
most unanimous award of the position
at short. Turner of Trinity is prob
ably the second best choice, although
Redfern of State is exceptionally good
in that capacity.
In the field the heavy-hitting Clark?
fcikes first place over "Rabbit" Bon
ner. He has made a hitting average of
about .450 and in that respect and that
respect alone does he surpass Bonner.
Correll of State and Poole, another
hard hitting Wake Forest boy, are the
choices in centerfield, while Ormand
and Spikes, both of Trinity, arc the
logical men for the right garden.
The veteran "Casey" Morris gets
the backstop position because of his
exceptional level headedness, ability to
work his pitchers and his power to hit
when hits will win a game. Hnyworth
of Guilford is not quite on a par with
Morris but ranks above both Faulkner
of State and Johnson of Trinity.
For pitchers Dempster, Sanderson and
Hunter of Davidson compose the first
string staff. Hunter has a no-hit game
to his credit as well as numerous wins.
He is also a good hitter.
Ferebee, pitching his first year of
varsity ball, Stamey of Wake Forest
and Bryson of Carolina or Stanley
Johnson of Wake Forest compose the
rest of the staff.

The former is at the present time
practicing law in New York City, where
he has a large law practice. He is an
alumnus of both the Universities of
North Carolina and Virginia, a native
of the Tar Heel state, and was in his
college days one of the youngest stu
dents ever to matriculate at the Uni
versity. Mr. Battle is a son of Turner Westray
Battle, and was born at Cool Spring
plantation in Edgecombe county. He
entered the University at the age of
13, and members of the faculty who
were here then remember him as a boy
in short trousers. Though a Univer
sity student, outside of study and class
hours he played about the village with
other boys of his own age who at that
time were in grammar school.
After graduating from Carolina, Mr.
Battle attended the University of Vir
ginia. Graduating from the law school
in 1889, he went to New York to prac
tice law. Since then he has won dis
tinction in his profession and in the
social and political life of the metropo
lis. In 1909 he was the Democratic can
didate for state district attorney in
the race against Charles S. Whitman,
Republican who later became Gover
nor of New York.
Dr. Durham is a Tar Heel living in
Atlanta. He is an A. B. of Trinity Col
lege, and later attended the Yale Di

the Union Theological Seminary. He
was also for a time a member of the
faculty of Trinity College and after

Episcopal church in Charlotte. He has
taken a prominent part in the coun

for several years, and also has written
poetry, contributing verses to the Out

Prof. Braune Attends
Meeting At Cincinnati
G. M. Braune, professor of civil en

attend a meeting of the Braune Civil
Engineering Society which met at the
University of Cincinnati.
The society, which was organized in
1914 by a group of prominent civil
engineers from all parts of the country,
was named after Professor Braune, and
he therefore takes a great deal of in
terest in its proceedings.
While there he made a speech before
the society. At the end of tho meet

members of the society.

Dr. Paul Dike, Noted Physicist, Cables
From Constantinople That
He Accepts Position.
Paul Dike, a well known physicist,
has cabled from Constantinople that he
will substitute here next year for A. II.
Patterson, who will be at Harvard on
a year's leave of absence.
The engagement of so good a man
for a temporary position came about
through a fortunate coincidence. Mr.
Patterson, while puzzling over the prob
lem of filling his place here temporarily,
received a letter from Mr. Dike, whom
he had known well at Cambridge and
in Berlin, but with whom he had had
no communication for many years. Mr.
Dike said that he desired to educate
his two sons in America, and asked for
information about some place where he
would fit in for a year, while he looked
about for a permanent position.
Within the week, Dr. Patterson set
tled the matter by cable.
Mr. Dike is a graduate of Northwest
ern University and took his Pli. D. at
the University of Wisconsin. He was
in the United States Coast and Geo
detric Survey, and went around the
world on a vessel of the United States
Magnetic Survey. He was in the sig
nal corps during the World war, and
since then has been a professor in Rob
erts College in Constantinople.

of his particular line by getting in
touch with men from similar organiza
tions at other colleges.
Every fraternity, publication board
and Bible class at the University will
be asked to send at least one represen
tative to the conference. In addition,
the committee wishes to have as many
delegates as possible from the student
body at large, and urges any men who
would like to go to Blue Ridge to call

Lectures to Commerce Students.
Mr. John G. Yost, assistant secretary
of the Fidelity and Deposit company
of Maryland, was in Chapel Hill last
Wednesday and delivered three lectures
before audiences composed of students
of the commerce and law schools. Ac
companying Mr. Yost was Mr. Floyd G
Whitney, of Charlotte, who is manager
of the company for North Carolina.
Mr. Whitney is a Carolina man, having
been a member of the class pf 1911.
The first lecture of Mr. Yost was be
fore the banking class of Professor
Murehison in the commerce school, the
subject of this lecture being "Fidelity
Bonds." In this lecture the speaker
pointed out the value and advantages

Later on in the day Mr. Yost spoke
to students of the schools of commerce
and of law in Saunders hall on the sub
ject of "Suretyship." His gave his sub
ject in the light of its practical appli
cation by the surety companies.
The visit of Mr. Yost and Mr. Whit
ney was of very much importance to
the students who are taking courses
in the fields in which these men are
specialists. They were men who gave
the side of the business man, and the
commerce and law students, realizing
this fact, turned out to hear them.
The recent show window display of
Koister's Hook store, which was fitted
out with two life-sissed pictures of local

L. T. Sogers, Herman Mclver, F. S.
Griffin, and J. P. Corbett Will
Pilot Class of '25.
Ludlow Rogers walked off with tho
presidency of next year's junior class
on the first ballot, over a field of four
candidates, last Tuesday. Herman Mc
lver led the ticket, winning tho vice
presidency by a majority of 181, and
Floyd Griffin snatched the secretary
and treasurorship from W. J. Cocke by
a 21 vote lead. Pat Corbett did not
have any opposition for representative
of the class on the campus cabinet.
Nominations wore held in Gerrard
hall Monday. Everything worked like
a well oiled machine. Everyone seem
ed to know who was to be nominated,
so no slip-up came. Martin Carmichael
was considered to be good presidential
timber, but for some reason he did not
make the race.
The ballot voted on Tuesday, with
the votes of each candidate, are as fol
lows: For President C. H. Yarborough, 37;

The new officers are men who well
deserve the honor which they have re
ceived. Ludlow Rogers of Durham has
been connected with many student activ
ities during his two years at Carolina,
and in him the rising junior class has
a good man for president.
Herman Mclver, who hails from Meb
ane, is one of the most admired fellows
in the class. This fact is evident from
the large vote which ho received for
vice president. "Mac" has become
quite a star on the gridiron, and is
also a bright light in the lecture room.
He is an ideal man for vice president.
Floyd Griffin, of Reidsville, is well
known on the campus, and is deserving
of 'the job of secretary-treasurer.
Pat Corbett, of Whitakers, is an Oak
Ridge man. He was a member of last
year's freshman basketball sipiad, and
is on the track team this year. He,
too, is a worthy representative for the

Hearing an end, call was issued by the
coaches Monday to begin spring foot

men reported and were given a work

members of the baseball team will of

MOORE DEFEATS EPSTEIN
After a campaign marked by unusual
speculation and doubt as to who would
be tho ultimate winners in tho rising
senior class elections, the final vote
was counted Wednesday night giving
W. W, Gwynn of Leaksvillo a largo ma

In the nominations Tuesday five men
were put out in machine-like precision
by their followers, Youngblood, Gwynn,
Bonner, Duls and Holderness. In the
first balloting Gwynn 's heavy lead over
the rest of the field forecasted an easy
win for him on the final ballot. Young

the big following Gwynn had secured,

TOi WOLFE HAS PLAY
Former Tar Heel Editor Writes Suc
cessful Play Dealing With the
The second year pharmacy class elect
ed its class officers for the coming year
at an election held Friday morning.
The following officers were elected: W.
R. McDowell, of Waxhaw, prosidout; F.
P. Brookshire, of Ashoville, vice presi
dent; and L. Shuford, of Lenoir, secretary-treasurer.
This is one of the larg
est pharmacy classes in the University's
history, numbering about 50 students.
Tom Wolfs, a former editor of the
Tar Heel unci a prominent participant
in tho Playmaker organization in his
undergraduate days at the University,
has had a successful production of one
of his plays dealing with the race prob-,
lem at the Agassi. House Theater of
Rndcliffe College, Cambridge, Mass.
Since his graduation from Carolina
in 1920, Wolfe has been taking advanc
ed work in dramatics at Harvard, and
has been one of the most promising
writers of the "47 Workshop," recog
nized as one of the leading dramatic
organizations in American universities.
The production of his play was receiv
ed with popular acclaim, and was con
sidered to be of sufficient quality to
warrant its entry in a contest being
conducted by a New York producer in
which a prize of $500 is being offered,
together with an opportunity for pro
duction on Broadway. The scene of
the jday is laid in Asbeville under the
name Altnmoiit, and all the characters
are Southerners with the exception of
the leading character, a "yellow nigger
from Boston." Wolfe takes no side in
the play, but writing from his rich
experience and knewledge of the race
question he made it very vivid and in
jected into it a strong and varied appeal.
Dr. Chase is in great demand now for
commencement addresses. Wednesday
he spoke at Louisburg College, Louis
burg; on tho 28th he will be at Oxford
College; Rocky Mount High School, on
June 1, and Washington and Lee Uni
