Town Cops Capture
Chief Peatherstone and his force
topped the deeds of the year last Fri
day night, when he captured two
rum-running automobiles, five boot
leggers, and various fruit jars count
ing thirty-five gallons of the real
'stuff, near Jack Sparrow's filling
station. About eleven o'nlnek. twn
cars, a Buick touring and a Flint,
passed Chapel Hill going in the di
rection of Durham. About an hour
later, two men of sombre appearance
entered Gooch's Cafe and asked per
mission to use the telephone. They
were granted the' request, and they
telephoned to a Durham garage for
a mechanic. Some shrewd member
of the above mentioned police force
overheard the conversation, and re
ported it to the chief. This promi
nent person thought it curious that
the mysterious party was telephon
ing to Durham, when a perfectly
erood garage lay within a " stones'
throw of Gooch's.
Chief Featherstone always did have
a "nose for alcohol" and he deduct
ed right then that the cause of the
strange action lay in the. said liquid.
Acting on this deduction, or hunch,
he gathered a small posse and fol
lowed the unknown party down
Strowd's Hill to a spot near Jack
Sparrow's filling station.
His deduction was correct, for with
in an hour, the chief had made ar
rests of which even the Federal auth
orities would be proud. Ie is report
ed that he arrested five people: a
boy, three men, and a nineteen year
old woman. Aside from the human
ity, he captured two cars, literally
loaded with some thirty-five gallons
of boot-leg whiskey. Of course the
police straightway destroyed the
"fire water" in some strange manner
which is not known, and lodged the
bootleggers in the Chapel Hill jail,
wherever that is.
It is not known where the law
breakers are from or to what point
they were bound, but it is known that
they have run against a stone wall
in no other agency than our dear
own Chapel Hill police force. The
bravery and ingenuity of the said
group -should be saluted' and" respect
ed always in the future. We'll have
to hand it to them; they are the stuff
when it comes to capturing whiskey
dealers, both imported and native.
Bad Check Flood
University officials have been
forced to take a hand in dealing with
the number of bad checks that have
recently been returned to the merch
ants of the town.
When a man is reported to the of
ficials as having a check returned by
his bank he will be suspended from
all classes and will not be reinstated
until the matter is cleared up.
Upon second offense the case will
be turned over to the student coun
cil with a recommendation fox sus
pension. Such drastic action has been made
necessary by the flood of bad checks
rpturned to the town merchants. One
merchant alone had 57 checks return
ed to him in one day and reported
that this was but an average; .
MRS. PRATT IS HOSTESS
AT A CHARMING DANCE
Mrs. Joseph Hyde Pratt entertain

One of the most enjoyable dances

were hostesses to their friends. Mr.

Chapel Hill, N.
University Team Takes Lead
But State Stages
Coffey's homer, with McDonald on
base in the first inning was . not
enough to win the opening game of
"ie state college series for Carolina.
State, held up by superb nitpM h
Allen and Hill,, came from behind to
tie the score in the fifth and win the
game in the sixth. Bryson did not
allow the West Raleigh boys a hit'ex
cept in the fatal fifth and sixth. '
Coffey was easily the star for Car
olina, He secured two hits out of
twice as many times at bat, one of
his hits being a homer, and accept
ed four chances in the field without
With Carolina enjoying her two run
lead gained in the" first inning, both
pitchers tightened down and for the
next three innings neither side got
a hit. In the fifth Lassiter reached
first when Johnson fumbled the ball
at short. Gilbert, following, sacri
ficed Lassiter to second. Johnson
slammed out a stinging double tnat
landed just inside the first base line.
Lassiter came home. Allen singled
and Johnson was safe at home when
Bonner dropped the throw in. Cor
rell got a hit but Gladstone and Shu
ford were easy outs.
State shoved the winning run
across in the sixth when Johnson
singled, went to second on Holland's
sacrifice, and came home on Gilbert's
single. Bryson tightened after this
and State did not get another hit for
the rest of the game.
Brilliant fielding was all that
saved State from defeat by a ninth
inning rally. Hill fanned Fuquay,
batting for . Johnson, but Bryson
brought hope back to the Carolina
stands when he rapped out a single.
McDonald was out when the catcher
caught a pop foul. With the stands
begging for a hit Bonner set him
self and laid out one that looked good
for a repetition of Coffey's stunt.
Shuford, in left field for State, made
a long running catch, the prettiest
of the game, retiring the side and
saving the ball game for State.

Trinity Comes With Blood in
Eyes to Revenge For
' mer Defeat
Eager to wipe out her earlier de
feat, Trinity will march down to Car
olina Wednesday prepared to put up
the greatest fight of her season. Ad
ded to her natural desire to win is
the fact that in her defeat last week
D-y state she sees her chances for
the state championship fading.
'At the last Carolina-Trinity game
at Hanes field, every seat was filled
and standing room was at a premium.
It may w-ell be expected that this
will be repeated at Emerson field
Wednesday. Both teams have many
supporters in the state that will turn
out and the two institutions are close
enough together so that practical!
the whole Trinity student body can
Carolina having lost to State
twice is definitely out of the race for
state honors. State has that "cinched.
Trinity can only put up a fight for
second place.- Wednesday's battle
will be a deciding factor in picking
the next best team after State. Car
olina's losses to Davidson and Wake
Forest together with her defeats by
Lenoir and State place her low in
the percentage column. Carolina has
a better team than the percentage
column gives her, however. By the
percentage method Trinity has much
the better chances for a win Wednes
day than does Carolina. On the other
hand Carolina has beaten Trinity
once this season and there is no rea
son why she shouldn't repeat.
Indications are that about the same
line-ups as met before will meet,
again. As Ferebee pitched Monday's
game against State, Bryson seems
to be the choice for Trinity. Bryson
fed them the poison in the other game.
Saunderson was on the mound for
Trinity last time and is a likely
choice for Wednesdays game. He
pitched a great game before. If
Sanderson should not be called on
Wednesday Dempster will : probaly
face the Tar" Heels. Dempster is a
good left hander, but Carolina has a
string of right hand hitters that
might work havoc, with his offerings.
Carolina played one of the best
games of her season against Trinity
before and must come up to it again
to beat the Methodists, wun two
such hurlers as Bryson and Sander
son facing each other, the team that
gets the breaks will probably win.
In Morris and Spikes will be seen
two great home run hitters that may
contribute greatly to the interest of
the game. Speaking of home runs
Coffey can't be overlooked. He is
hitting like a house afire and should
contribute largely to a Carolina suc

Di Society Discusses
. Beginning with a discussion as to
whether or not Josiah W. Bailey
should be the next Governor of North
Carolina, the Di Society last Satur
day night proceeded to drag the three
candidates for governor over the
coals one minute and praise them to
the skies the next minute for a stormy
period of one hour. Doubtless had
either of the candidates been present
to hear, the brilliant' talent of the Di
Society so scorchingly used against
them, they would- gladly give un
their race and retire to the backwoods
and hide their so called faces. Luck
ily, however, all of the candidates
were so fortunate as to be absent,
and as a result we will continue to
hear "freight rates" and tax reduc
tion howled from one end of the state
to the other until the next election.
At first everybody was a little shv
to speak out their pet candidate, but
alter the way had been opened by E.
L. Justus in a splendid oration, al
most everyone clamored for the
floor. Even the freshmen arose and
aired their views and wit. In'th
end the society decided overwhelm
ingly that Mr. Bailey should not be
our next governor..
Probably due to the after effects
of the State game Saturday afternoon

Johnnie Purser's two mile run in

day. The race finally simmered down
to "you let me by this time and I'll
let you by the next," between Pur

of 'Washington and Lee, who finished
first and second respectively.
Coach Bob Fctzer has an awful
time. He is always fearful of leav

was no exception. Coach Bob found
that he could take only seventeen
trock men, -and Red Barber was the
eighteenth. But Red decided to take

amount of change, he finally decid
