INTER-CLUB CASE HELD
BY BUDDING LAWYERS
Imaginary Case of Stiles vs. Rail
.way Argued by the Two Law
Clubs of the University.
The annual inter-club case between the
Manning and Ruflin Law Clubs of the
University Law School was held last
Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock in the
Thi Hull. S. Jl. Whedbee and A. L.
Purringtou of the Ruffin Law Club were
the attorneys for the Apellants, while
Andrew Joyner and C. B. McKae acted
as attorneys for the Apellee, in the case
of John Stiles vs. City Railway Coui
naiiy in the Supereme Court of the Ruf
fin and Manning Law Club competition.
The facts of the ease were : The
plaintiff, who was on his way home,
attempted to board a street car at one
of the regular down town starting points,
during the late afternoon rush hour.
Before he had actually entered the
car, and while he was ou the first step
of the rear platform, he noted that the
ear was packed full, and thereupon de
cided to back out and off and take the
nexv. car. While in the act of attempt
ing to do so, one of the starters employ
ed by the company motioned for the car
to start, and at the same time, not
understanding what the plaintiff was try
ing to do, pushed the plaintiff into the
The plaintiff was forced to stand on
the platform by reason of the car's be
ing full of passengers.
After the car had proceeded a distance
of about five blocks, and before plaintiff
had paid his fare, the motorman, in order
to avoid a collision with a heavy truck,
stopped the car with such suddenness
and force that plaintiff was violently
thrown against an iron stanchion where
by he suffered contusions and leceratious
about the face and head, in addition to
a severely wrenched back.
At the trial, the defendant moved for
a non-suit on the ground that the plain
tiff's evidence showed that he was negli
gent in boarding a crowded car and
standing on the platform, and further
that there was no evidence that the de
fendant was negligent or that the injury
was due to its negligence.
The motion for a non-suit was denied.
The defendant excepted and appealed
from the verdict and judgment in favor,
of the plaintiff for eight lrmdred dollars.
Judge R. W. Winston acted as Chief
Justice, with Judge Sykes, of Durham,
and L. I'. MeGehee acting as Associate
The decision of the judges was as fol
The judgment of the lower court is af
firmed with regard to the first exception,
since the Railway Company was negli
gent in placing a passenger on a crowded
The judgement of the lower court is
reversed with regard to the second point,
because the stopping of a car to avoid
an accident fails to make out o "prima
facie'" case of negligence on the part of
the Railway Company.

431 votes. J. E. Hawkins polled 375,
while Steve Brody brought up the rear
with a measly 85.
The candidates for the Publications

HENDERSON ADDS NEW
BOOK TO LONG LIST
The Extension Department of the Uni
versity has recently published a pam
phlet on Relativity written by Dr. Archi
bald Henderson. The pamphlet is divided
into three chapters, viz., "The World
We Live In," "The Special Theory of
Relativity." and lastly "The General
Theory of Relativity."
The pamphlet fully sets forth and il
lustrates the principles of special and
general Relativity. It was written
primarily for the layman but the ma
terial is put down with utmost precision
and is truly a scholarly production. In
order to give the pnmphlet a more pleas
ing appearance and to make it more in
teresting, Dr. Henderson has cleverly
trimmed it with rich quotations.
One of the chief features of the
pamphlet is the clear-cut and interest
ing way in which the author points out
Einstein's Hypothesis as applied to the
physical universe. In the way of ex
planation, the pamphlet is filled with
many plates and diagrams which makes
it interesting and intelligible to even the
Last Thursday night a regular old
ime cutting fracas was held in front
of the Baptist church when Gooch's
lead cook waylaid Silas Lloyd, super
hef of the University Cafeteria. Silas
ame out at the worse end of the scrap
vith a cut ou his head requiring ten
stitches. But even at that Alexander
for such is the name of the aggressor
didn't get off so lightly since he is at
present in the calaboose waiting for
trial without bond. It was about 10
o'clock when the people living in the
neighborhood were called from their
houses by the loud cries of Silas who
affirmed that ho was in dire need of
aid and that Alexander's intentions
were undoubtedly not of the best sort.
This incident is much to be regretted
by the student body at large, since the
meals at both of the places will surely
suffer through the luck of the guiding
hand and thus cause indigestion winch
will in turn cause poor grades and so
on ad infinitum. The speedy recovery
of Silas and the exodus of Alexander
from the hands of justice is hoped for
so that Silas may again be seen grin
ning from behind piles of meat and
Alexander's culinary gems may be enjoyed.
HIGH SCHOOL OUTING
Last week the Chapel Hill High School
held a picnic at Oconeeche, near Hills
boro. Three truck lods went over full
of boys and girls enjoying their outing.
The trucks were decorated in the high
school colors. The trip was a success
and everyone enjoyed themselves to the
fullest both literally and figuratively.
Walter J. Matherly, associate profes
sor of Business Administration in the
University, delivered the high school com
mencement address at the Whitney con
solidated school in southern Alamance
county, hist week. Tonight he speaks
to the Civitan Club of High Toint on the
subject, "Potentialities of Civic Clubs."
Bishop Penick, North Carolina's
latest ordained bishop, who deliv
ered the University Sermon last No
vember, will give a series of two
lectures Wednesday and Thursday
nights at 8:30 on "The Teachings
of the Bible as Applied to the Ten
dencies of Modern Thought."
The Durham Bull Yearlings were com
pletely prostrated by the Pomona High
School last Saturday and sent home cov
ered with the dust of Emerson Field and
the small end of a 5 and 0 score. It
was Barbee's arm that won the game,
the hefty nioundsman striking out nine
men, allowing only three hiugles and
slamming out a home run in the second
frame. The game was played before a
fair size crowd, generously !esprmkled
with many beautiful young ladies whose
nether extremities in many cases were
generously clad in brilliant red Hole
proofs. Durham's first hit was collected by
catcher Garden in the fifth canto when
he hit one to short and beat it out to
first while the shortstop was playing
with the ball. The other two connec
tions came in the' seventh, Holt and
Carden singling in rapid succession.
Bnrbee toyed with Durham in the first.
W. White was whiffed, Satterfield flew
out to the first baseman and Byrd was
thrown out at the initial sack. Pomona
threatened to score in their half of the
inning when Regan, first man up was
given first on an error by Read. Jes
sup popped up to Cherry who turned
it into a double play by catching Regan
at first. York swung thrice.
With noue on aud none out Barbee
poled out a four base hit over center in
the second aud scored enough runs by
himself to have won the game. In the
third siesta two mnrkers were hung up
by I'omona on two hits and two errors.
Jessup singled and went to third on
Holt's error. York followed with a sec
ond single and he and Jessup crossed
the plate when Read threw the ball over
home in an effort to catch the latter. An
other couplet was shoved across in the
fifth. Regau doubled to left aud was
brought in by Jessup's double to right.
The hard hitting second baseman went
to third on Y'ork's infield out aud scored
on Barbee's long sacrifice to deep center.
The Durham boys threatened to turn
the seventh into a sure enough rally
when singles by Holt and Carden placed
two men on liases with none out. Rend
failed to deliver and Hew out to the third
baseman. E. White then cracked a
ball square on the nose and sent it flitting
away with a home run labeled attached.
But like the castles in the nir the Bull
City hopes crumbled ns Boucher made a
spectacular one-handed catch while run
ning at full speed.
Neither pitcher issued a pass, an un
usual feat in high school ball, only one
sacrifice hit was made and only two
bases were pilfered. Carden of Durham

CHOPS FOR BAPTISTS
Importance of Trinity Game De
pends on Outcome of Wake
TEAM IS IN GOOD SHAPE
Casey Morris will lead his lions over
to Wake Forest Thursday to do brittle
with the Baptist nine ou their home lot
and attempt to revenge the crushing 9
to 3 defeat that was parcelled out to his
team on the efghth of May.
Completely recovered from the wear
and grind of their long Southern tour
and placed again in the race for state
honors by Trinity"s defeat at the hands
of Davidson, the Tar Heels will do all
in their power to show the Wake Forest
club that it was a played out and worn
out team that they defeated on Emer
son Field aud not the Tor Heel team
that five days later swamped State Col
lege 11 to 4.
Upon this game hinges the importance
of the Trinity game on June 5. If the
game is lost or even tied the game with
the Methodist brethren will be merely
au attempt to avenge the defeat by
Trinity earlier in the season. If the
Wake Forest game is won then there
will hang upon the Trinity game not only
sweet revenge but also perfectly good
claims for state honors, for should Car
olina be able to take both games in tow
the only claim that the Durham college
could lay upon the state laurels would
lie the University"s tie game with Guil
ford, which is far from being strong
enough to substantiate a baseball cham
pionship. The Tar Heels are out for blood aud
will be contented with nothing less. With
six wins, six losses aud two draws to
their credit the team must win both
g'imes to place the balance on the fav
orable side, and now-a-days its no longer
a custom of teams from this institution
to have a balance in any other column
than the one ou the credit side and Mor
ris doesn't desire a whit thnt his team
should start a backward movement.
The batting of Caruiichael and the
fielding of Bonner have been two of the
outstanding features of the team of lute.
The dope stingers had it all figured out
that Cart would make a good fielder on
account of his speed, but not much of
a batter. Now Caruiichael is perched
within three lone points of the three hun
dred mark, which nil goes to prove that
as usual, nil dope slingers are wrong,
with the standing exception, of course,
of our own Buck Midyette.
Bonner has reduced his section of the
park to an Elysian Field for the pitcher
and a veritable Hades for the batter. In
the State game he pulled down seven
lofty ones without the semblance of n

ing thus far and has shown himself enp

WILLIAM CAIN SOCIETY
HOLDS ANNUAL BANQUET
Major Cain Presents Society With Pic
ture of Himself New Officers
The William Cain Student Chapter of
the America n Society of Civil Engi
neers held its annual banquet in the
laboratory room of Phillips hall today.
This banquet is a thing that has been
looked forward to all the year and to
day it proved to be just as successful
as was anticipated.
Aside from the temporary enjoyment
which the banquet furnished the stu
dents and faculty, the society was pre
sented with a gift which will be a
thing of lasting admiration and pleas
ure. This gift was a very fine picture
of Major William Cain, the founder
of the society, who made the presenta
tion himself. Major Cain presented the
portrait modestly but with a few im
pressive and well chosen words.
The portrait will be placed in the li
brary to serve as a memorial for one
who has done so much to make the en
gineering school of the University the
best in the state, and among the leading
schools of the country.
At this banquet the society also in
stalled its officers for ucxt year. For
president the Rociety chose J. N. Gilbert
to succeed O. E. Martin; for vice presi
dent L. I. Lassitcr to succeed A. S.
Chase; for secretary, W. M. Price to

HON. J. J. PARKER SPEAKS
Carolina Playmakers Recognized
by the Fleece for the First
Time in History.
To six juniors and three sen
iors was awarded Carolina's high
est honor when the annual "tap
ping" of the senior society of the
Golden Fleece took place in Me
morial hall Friday night. The
nine campus leaders "tapped" this
year were as follows: Roy Morris,
Gastonia; C. B. Colton, Boston,
Mass.; C. S. Hampden, Chapel
Hill; R, C. Carmichael, Durham;
John Purser, Charlotte; LeGrande
Everett, Rockingham ; Earl Hart
sell, Stanfield; W. W. Gwynn,
Leaksville; Jack Allsbrook, Ro
Hon. J. J. Parker, Republican can
didate for Governor at the last election,
delivered a strong and impressive talk,
describing in vivid terms the peak that;
civilization has reached and the crying
call of the world for real men, men
such as those always sought for by the
Golden Fleece. He was introduced by
Professor Horace Williams, honorary
mombor of the Fleece, who also traced
briefly the founding and early begin
nings of the organization, paying trib
ute to the unbiased method ever em
ployed in selecting its new men, "never
allowing for a moment any personal
feeling to enter in."
Alan McGhee, president of the soci
ety, spoke briefly on the problom that
faced the Fleece this year and the man
ner in whieh it was solved. He ex
pressed his wish that the selection
would please the campus, and added
that the organization was unanimously
satisfied that it had chosen the most"
deserving and most worthy men. The
Fleece man must be a real leader, one
who has distinguished himself in gome
phase of University life, possessing
along with that tho necessary charac
teristics of the ideal University man.
He must be potential, with certain dis
tinguishing attitudes, according to Mr.
Following this talk the traditional
robed figures appeared in tho doorway
and the "tapping" began with these
mystic persons wandering about the
hall and finally mounting tho stage
where Mr. Parker was fairly jerked
from his seat and the Golden Fleece rib
bons were pinned on him as the first
to be "tapped." Tho audience voiced
approval with a long, vigorous applause.
When Mr. Parker was in the Univer
sity as a student the Golden Fleece was
ffrst organized, and he was offered mem
bership at that time but rejected be
cause of the peculiar condition that
existed then between the fraternity anil
non-fraternity mon on the campus. It
was the feeling then that tho Fleece
was a new fraternity rising up soon to
