SEVERAL GOOD EVENTS
This is One of the First Meets of
Its Kind Ever Held in
By THE HAY-SHAKER)
If yon see some poor stude stagger
ing around the campus an incidentally
catch n smell of tlie sacred oil exhaled
in his breath, according to the honor
system you are supposed to turn this
man up for censure, not take a drink as
would be the perfectly natural course
of action. The same rule applies to
cheating, stealing, and various other
offenses, which J. O. Harmon could list
better than myself. In other words,
Carolina has an honor system.
Probably the greatest addition to the
honor system, and an example of the
elasticity of the priuciple, was the tel
egraphic meet held between Georgia
and Carolina 's track freshmen last
It was probably the most novel event
held on the campus this year. As each
event was completed, Carolina would
wire in the result the time of both the
first and second plaee man. Georgia
did the same thing. It was a rac9
against time. And if you don't know
what that is, it was the same thing that
the. Hay-Shaker performed on the Emer
son track during the last N. C. State
game. Georgia scored 83 points to
Probably the outstanding events in
this proxy meet were the middle dis
tances. The Georgia man ran the quar
ter in 51 1-5 seconds and the half mile
in the great time of 1 minute 59 sec.
Carolina won only two first places and
tied for two others. Her firsts were in
the broad jump and javelin, and the
ties were in the low hurdles and the
high jump. Fordham's and Barber's
work in the javelin was especially good.
The summary follows:
100 yard dash: Kilputriek, Georgia;
Windham, Georgia; Goodwin, Carolina.

BISHOP PENECK LECTURES
BEFORE SfVIALL AUOiENGE
His Subject Was "The Bible and Its
Interpretation in the Modern
Line of Thought."
Bishop Peniek, of the Western North
Carolina diocese of the Episcopal
vhureh, gave a very interesting lecture
in Oorrai'd hall last Wednesday evening,
and although the attendance was not
large, those who were present were well
repaid for their time.
The Bishop took as the subject for
his lecture "The Bible and Its Inter
pretation iu the Modern Line of
Thought." The lecture was divided
into four parts; namely: (1) God re
veals himself in many ways, but the
form in which Ho does it does not mut
ter. Some of the ways in which He
chooses to do it are through nature, his
tory and the Bible. Even people who
have never beard of God have some
((inception of what is right and what
is wrong. Though the Book of Esther
does not mention God, its value is as
great as that of some of the books of
the Bible whieh do. (2) The desire and
search for truth, no matter how it is
conveyed, is the thing which is to be
sought. The noun "Bible" is singu
lar, but the book's contents are plural.
(3) God reveals himself progressively.
As we learn more and greater truths it
becomes necessary for us to discard
some of the beliefs of childhood. The
Old Testament is merely a history of
the progress of the Jews in the worship
of God. The Bible gives testimony of
slavery and polygamy, but modern so
ciety cannot justify such practices. The
writings in the BiMo are contempo
raneous with tho customs of the times
in which they were written, and must
be read with that in mind. (4) The
Biblo must be read with an understand
ing of its form of literature. It is in
spired, contains the word of God, and
is God trying to reveal Himself to the
This lecture, which was the first of
a series which are to be given here, was
thoroughly enjoyed by everyone iu the

A letter having on the envelope
stamps worth 450 marks, before the
war worth over $100, was received thi
week by S. H. Hobbs, associate profes
sor of Rural Social Economics in the
University, from E. C. Branson, Kenan
professor of Rural Social Science in the
University, who is now traveling in
Germany, accompanied by his wife and
daughter. At present they are making
their headquarters in the German prov
ince of Wurtemburg. They will make
a side trip into Switzerland, and about
the middle of June will go to Den
mark, where the greater part of their
year in Europe will be spent.
"During the next month or so," Mr.
Branson wrote, "we shall be guests of
Baron van Der Lippe, in the Sehloss
gut Eugelburg, which crowns an emi
nence overlooking the little farm village
of Winterbach, 20 miles east of Stutt
gart. A companion guest is the charm
ing wife of Professor Herman Staab,
a distinguished member of the faculty
of the University of North Carolina.
Their names are an open sesame to
everything in Wurtemburg, Baden and
South Germany in general."
"We have met nothing but courtesy
and kindness," wrote Mr. Branson. "If
the Germans harbour a grudge against
America, we have not yet discovered
Mr. Branson found German industries
going at full speed, and general condi
tions remarkably better on the surface
than one would expect. "Hamburg is
a beautiful city and clean beyond be
lief. And it is a busy city, busy with
the business of all Europe, for all Eu
rope is Hamburg's backyard for busi
ness. Everybody is busy; no loaters or
bums are on the benches of the public
squares; everybody is good humored,

From Hamburg the Bransons made a

Mr. Branson wrote:
"The way along the road is thickly
set with towns and cities. Almost with

A MATHEMATICS SECTION
IN ACADEMY OF SCIENCE
He Also Delivers a Lecture on
Einstein's Theory Before the
Recent State Meeting.
SESSION AT GREENSBORO
"Archibald Henderson, president of
North Carolina Academy of Science, de
livers masterly address on Einstein's
theory," proclaimed the headlines of
the Greensboro Daily News in report
ing the recent meetings of the Acadomy
of Science at the North Carolina Col
lege in Greensboro. The address of
the retiring president, professor of
mathematics in the University, was said
to be "the high light of the day at
Dr. Henderson organized at this meet
ing a mathematics section of the acad-
emv. Chemistry ana pnysics sections
were already in active existence. A 25
per cent increase in the membership of
the academy was largely the result of
the organization of the new section.
At the meeting of the section, two pa
pers were read, one "On the Curvature
of the Manifolds," by J. W. Lasley, of
the University mathematics department,
and the other, "Aspects of Constant
Curvature," by Dr. Henderson. Mr.
Lasley was elected president, and K. B.
Patterson of Trinity was elected secretary.
The academy elected Dr. Henderson
a member of the executive committee
for three years. This was the first time
that the academy has ever elected any
one for more than one year.
In the course of his address on Ein
stein's theory of relativity, Dr. Hen
derson told of the study he and his
students at the University had made in
the field of spherical space and the uni
verse, in relation to Einstein's theory
that the universe was "finite but un
bounded." Using the distance from the
earth to the sun 93,000,000 miles as
. measure, he figures the radius of the
universe to be one million times ten
million times the distance from the
earth to the sun. This universe is the
space in whieh sidereal bodies are found.
Choosing the milky way as a yard stick
of 30,000 light years, he said that it
would take 10,000 milky ways, laid end
to end, to give the diameter of the uni
verse. It would take a ray of light, he said,
traveling 1SH,000 miles a second, one
billion years to go around the universe.
It would take the fastest aeroplane
three quadrillion years, or an express
train, traveling 60 miles an hour, 11
"There is no space," Dr. Henderson
quoted Einstein as saying, "without
matter and energy. It is possible that
other universes exist independently of
our own. They may remain forever
optically isolated from us. We are
doomed to dwell within a finite universe
a thousand times greater than that now
ac-cessible to astronomical observation."

The initiation was followed by a
banquet, accompanied by speeches by
Drs. Cobb and Prouty.
The second annual Yackety Yack
wake, which was held last Monday
night, came off to the satisfaction of
every one concerned. As all present
seemed to be in a talkative mood, there
was no little amount of pedigreed bull
sluitg to the four walls of the Cabin.
Out of 22 present a total of 13 made
orations of various lengths, and it is
to be presumed that the reason for the
remainder not making any remarks was
the shortness of the night. Six of the
cultivators of the barnyard art were
arranged for by the program commit
tee. They were O. C. Hendrix, who
spoke on the "Art of Sponsorship;"
Tom Turner, "And He Said Tomor
row;" Bob Pickens, "Work for Art's
Sake;" George Ragsdale gave a disser
tation on the "Alligator's Adenoids,"
and C. D. Drullard issued the second
installment of the "Bull From Buf

"Card of Thanks."
The other speakers of the evening
were left to gain a place upon the floor
in the best manner they could. From
tho variety of their subjects it has been
impossible for a list of them to be
made, but whatever they are, their au
thors are these: J. T. Barnes, Ed. Mat

Lankford, Jake Wade and Abrain Weil.
On the back of the program was
printed the names of those who hold
certain notable offices in the Yackety
'ack family. Tho ofliec of Chief
Mourner was accorded to Tom How
ard; Olin Hendrix and Tommy Turner
were inscribed ns "Certain Rich Men,"
and the honor of wearing "The Only
Smile in the Crowd" was given to Ed
gar Owen Drullar, the representative
from the printery.
Evidently those who mude out the
program did not intend to make them
selves u part of it, for at its end was
placed the phrase, "There is an end
of all things Thank God for that."
An apt group of words for the footing
of th" program for such a session.

MAY GIVE LETTER FOR
WRESTLING NEXT YEAR
The Athletic Association is Seriously
Considering Putting Wrestling on
S?me Status With Other Sports.
.ow is tne tune tor nil aspiring
young Ilawkshnws to come to the aid
of their Mayor. Who stole Mayor Rob
inson 'k hens?
Saturday night at 10 o'clock Mayor
l.'olieison was relieved of two fancy,
female fowls of the aristocratic Silver-Spangled-llanibiiig
clan. The thieves
were evidently well versed in their art,
for they took the lay of the land and
chose a time for their dastardly deed
when nil the members of the TCoberson
family were away; however, they made
one false step, which might have play
ed havoc with their elaborate plans:
they neglected to ascertain that Mrs.
Roy Mason, the mayor's sister, was in
the house recuperating from a recent
operation. Mrs. Mason was aroused
by the heart-rending squawks of the
bens but she was unable to interfere.
On returning to the house Mayor Rob
erson found plenty of footprints, two
eggs, but no hens. All investigations
proved fruitless, for the marauders had
flown the coop.
The only information as to who the
thieves were was tho information given
by Mrs. Katie Brockwell, who stated
that she had been kept awake nearly
all night by students having a chicken
roast near her house. Of course no stu
dents could be guilty of such a heinous
crime; so tins clue might as wen be
Devotees of the nit of wrestling will
be interested in the niinoijiie'oment that
the Athletic Association is seriously
considering taking this sport under its
wing and of putting it on tho same
status with other sports at tho Univer
sity. The Athletic Council has n-i-oin-
mended that such action be taken, and
the matter is now being considered by
the Athletic, Association.
If this recommendation is acted on
favorably, the student, body as a whole
will no doubt take more interest in the
sport, for the consensus of opinion
among students is that wrestling should
be tinder the protection of the Associa
tion. There re many advantages that
would be realized from such a step. A
further inducement would be added to
get men to come out for tho team, for
the coveted XC monogram will be the
reward of those who will "stick in
there and fight." This should entice
many good men out to try for a berth
on the squad.
There would necessarily be an in
crease of attendance at the matches
when the door tax is taken off. A
heavy schedule would bring out many
wrestling fans, and it is rumored that
matches arc pending with Washington
and Lee, V. M. I., Virginia, and other
colleges outside the state.
