SAM AND MARY
Former Blind Students Are
Given a-Big Write Up in
WERE WELL KNOWN HERE
Sam Cathey and "Mary" Worsham
two Carolina men whom all upperclass-
men recall with many pleasant memories,
are now practicing law In Asheville, The
day following their being sworn in the
Asheville Citizen came out with a detail
ed write-up of both men, including a
photograph of these two which the earn-
pus knew so well.
' In order that the upperclassuicn may
see what Asheville thinks of two newly
made alumni of the University and in
order to acquaint the class of 1928 with
two men who were among the most prom
inent on the Hill last year, the Citizen
write-up is being quoted in detail as
All things yield to the mind, accord
ing to the philosophy of. Sam Murston
Cathey and Blackburn Buford Worsham,
blind students of the University of North
Carolina, who recently passed with high
honors the examination given by the Su-
preme Court of the State for admittance
to the practice of law in North Carolina.
' The announcement of the formation of
. the pai tnership of Cathey and Worsham
is of unusual interest to many persons
throughout the State, for during the five
years that Mr. Cathey and Mr. Worsham
studied at the University of North Caro-
lina they made a host of friends among
the student body. ,
Both men are keen students, and both
made remarkable records at the Univer
sity. Worsham did unusual work in ath
letics and received his "NC" as a mem
ber of the gym team. Cathey was active
in campus affairs, and was successful as
a political leader.
It is understood that Mr. Cathey made
the highest grade upon the examination
given In August by the Supreme Court.
This is of more than passing interest in
.. view of the fact that Mr. Cathey is to
tally blind and that the examination was
considered to be the hardest given by
the Supreme Court in many years. This
Is attested by the fact that 63 out of the
lil who took the examination failed.
Sixty-eight of those, taking the examina
tion were admitted to the practice of
law in this state. Six men were licensed
by the comity act This number is not
included in the 111 taking the examina
The information that Mr. Cathey made
, the highest grade was obained from an
indirect but reliable source. From this
same source it was learned that Mr. Wor-
sham's paper was also of a very high
Th eexamination was several hours long
and Mr. Cathey and Mr. Worsham dic
tated their answers to stenographers pro-
viilexj by the court. The stenographers

CALL FOR CANDIDATES
Cross Country Men Are Espec
ially Urged to Report
A call for all men interested In track
work : to report Monday afternoon at
4:15 in Gerrard Hall was issued Satur
day by Pale Ransom, captain of the 1925
University of North Carolina track team.
All old men and freshmen are included
in the call, and cross-country men are
especially urged to report next Monday.
According to Ransom, cross country
training will begin hi earnest on Tues
day. Two meets are planned for the
freshmen during the fall of this year,
and there is strong possibility of several
intra-mural matches. The , cake-race,
which was quite a sensation last year,
will take place during the first week
in November, and a batch of choice home
made cakes will be offered for the mere
trouble of doing a little running.
Especial emphasis was laid upon the
Value of doing work this fall in both
track and field events, as a method of
getting in shape for the spring work.
Cross-country running, says Ransom, is
very valuable training to all men inter
ested in the distance side of track, and
a help to those interested in the other
An unusually good schedule for next
year is being arranged and will soon be
released. In order to keep up the splen
did track record of the University, all
two-legged men, regardless of experience,
are urged to come out and make a trial
for the team.

CANDIDATES AT WORK
"Runt" Lowe and Grady Pritch-
ard Begin Work With "Tar
With "Runt" Lowe coaching ie back-
field and Grady Pritchard at work on
the line, freshman football practice began
last week with the usual preliminary
period of limbering up and wind devel
oping. Sixty-five men reported for back-
field work and 77 for the line. Only a
few uniforms have been issued to date,
and the squad has not been on the field
long enough for the men of first string
calibre to show up.
The coaches report that the freshmen
have shown only mediocre ability at punt
ing, but are slightly better with the pass
ing game. In a week or ten days, the
teams should begin to assume shape in
preparation for the season's schedule,
which to date has not been released by
Mr. Woollen's office due to incomplete
ness. C. C Poindexter, who played his fourth
season with Carolina last fall, will join
the other two University stars next week

COLLEGE NIGHT IS
BY NEW AND OLD
President Chase and Major Mc-
Lendon Speak on Behalf of
Faculty and Alumni
'BILL" COCKE THE INTRODUCER
Nearly all the freshmen and a good
number of old men attended the College
Night celebration in Memorial hall on
Thursday night, W. J. Cocke, Jr., pres
ident of the student body, presided and
explained the origin and the purpose of
College Night. He also introduced the
President Chase began his address by
welcoming the new men on behalf of the
faculty. Then he proceeded to tell whal
the University means and should mean
to those who are students in it It was
not a factory, he said, but an individual
thing. He explained that it did not con
sist of its buildings, its grounds, or its
equipment, but' of the living, breathing
spirit that gave it life. Intp this spirit,
he said, had gone the hopes, the dreams
and the labor of young men for a hun
dred and thirty years. He then pro
ceeded to enumerate the characteristics
that made up this spirit. He defined
these as honesty, ' honor, freedom, high
standards, good sportsmanship, vital
ity and future-mindedness. "Our Uni
versity has never settled into sleepy con
tent; it has always advanced," he de
clared. "The new men comes not only
to opportunity; they come to responsi
;"I feel like coarse cement between two
slabs of polished marble," Bill Cocke de
clared as he took the floor. He bade
the new men welcome , on behalf of the
student body and said that each class
brought new fuel, new energy and new
ideas into the student body. Good citi
zenship Is the goal of education, was the
tone of his message. He went on to ex
plain how sectionalism was wiped away
and a larger, broader outlook took its
place in the minds of the men who came
to this campus.
The last speaker was Major. L. P.. Mc-
Lehdon, of Durham. He spoke for the
alumni and gave a picture of the alum
nus' part in the life of the University,
comparing its organization to that .of
an army in the. field. "The alumnus,"
he said, "is the trained soldier on the
fighting line." He then drew a humorous
picture of the evolution of a college
man, declaring that he is the greatest
imitator on earth. He proceeded to 6how
that a man's individuality is his great
est asset anywhere, and that the state
has need of men of initiative rather than
The cheer and song leaders roused the
freshmen into great; enthusiasm. - The
band , was present and furnished an en
joyable part of the evening's program.

CHASE AND BERNARD
SPEAK TO JUNIORS
Underwood and Couch Are Also
Speakers at the First
- Junior Smoker
"The ideal shse of a University Is be.
tween 3,000 and 4,000 students, and 'the
University .will soon reach that ideal
size," President Harry W. Chase declared
Tuesday night at the junior class smoker.
President Chase talked generally along
the same lines that he did on the previ
ous night at the senior smoker. He plead
for a greater unity of understanding
among the student body. He 'compared
the University of a hundred years ago
with the University of today, and used
several .. humarou.-. illustration whichf
threw light on University life in 1821,
Dr. W. S. Bernard, known to the stu
dents as "Bully," emphasized, in a rather
lengthy talk that the junior class occu
pies a strategic position on the campus.
The seniors, he declared, are looking for
ward to the day when they will finish
the University and enter the world as
full-fledged men and women, whereas
the juniors have not yet developed that
outlook upon life. The sophomores and
freshmen, he stated, were "liabilities," in
asmuch as they had not been in the Uni
versity long enough to take over posi
tions of student leadership.
Talks were made by Emmctt Under
wood, president of the class of last year,
and by William T. Coucli, intercollegiate
debater and popular member of the class.
Couch delivered an effective five-minute
talk on "Bull." He divided the well
known bull into two 'divisions: "pure"
bull und "practical" bull. The students,
for the most part, engage in "practical"

COUNCIL IS ORGANIZED
Seventy-five Ex-Hi-Y Men At
tend Banquet Tuesday
Last Tuesday night some 75 ex-Hi-Y
men, members of the freshman class, held
a banquet in the social room of the Pres
byterian church and organized the Fresh
man Friendship Council, which Is the
medium through which the first year men
look, after their interests during the year.
The program was in charge of J. R.
Purser, Jr., who acted as toastmaster
and temporary chairman.
The purpose of the council was ex
plained by Jesse Calhoun, who welcomed
the new men. He spoke of last year's
council and challenged them to Improve
on the work that their predecessors have
Following this speech came a humor
ous talk by C. C. Poindexter and a speech
by President II. W. Chase, who again
welcomed the new men and explained to
them some pf the benefits of college life
and how they could derive the most bene
fits from it- . 1
The work of the coming year was out
lined by Lawrence Watt, who explained
how the council did its work and how It
could help the other members of the class.
After the speeches, officers for the year
were elected. They were as follows:
President, Brooks Todd, of Charlotte;
vice-president, Joe R. Bobbitt, Jr., of
Rocky Mount; secretary, W. W. Neal,
Jr., of Greensboro, and treasurer, Edwin
MacKelthan, of Fayetteville,
FOR GAME TODAY
The Carolina Coaches Still
Keep Their Line-Up
. Under Cover
GAME WILL DRAW BIG CROWD
Just who will represent Carolina today
in the annual scrap with Wake Forest
is still uncertain. Underwood and Devin
are hard to choose between and In all
probability both will be given a chance
to show their goods. Underwood has
been suffering with a boil, and while not
enough to keep him out, may throw the'
balance in fuvop of Devin. Whisnant and
Warren are both muking a good show
aR linesmen, and have been running part
of the time with the varsity. They may
be given an opportunity to perform today
Latest words from the Baptists is that
Riley will most likely replace Daniel at
end. Except for this change the line-up
is expected to be that of last year. Ac
cording to the Demons, Daniel was the
weak link In the chain last year and
was the cause of the 22 to 0 defeat hand
ed them, and that Riley will make a per
fect chain. If this be true, then the Tar
Heel chances this afternoon are slim.
In spite of the acknowledged strong
team that the Baptists have, there is a
note pf confidence among the Carolini
ans. The school is with the team in vic
tory or defeat, and the belief on the
campus is that It will be in victory. The
backflcld appears to be faster than that
of last year and Jack Merritt should
lend it a drive that the team of last fall
did not have at times. The line, while
such stars as Morris, Poindexter, Line
berger and Shepherd are missing, is hefty
and seems fully capable of filling Its part
of the job.
Many students are accompanying the
team to Wake Forest, journeying by
auto, train and bus. Pendergraft has
two of the big Safety coaches that will
make a round trip in addition to his
other busses. Huggins and his crew of
cheer leaders wllLbejin deck and a dem-.
onstration of the old-time Carolina spirit .
is expected to be given. For a few hours
Suturday afternoon the campus will be
left to the dogs, co-eds and such of the
faculty as find it impossible to make the
trip. The janitors In the various dorms
have conducted a subscription campaign
to go to. "Wake Feres'" and an unusu
ally large number of Chapel Hill's col
ored population should be there to cheer
on "their team."
Although there is no certainty, it seems
probable that these men will constitute
the line-ups of the two teams this after
noon when the whistle is blown for the
start of the game:
Wake Forest Carolina
Riley ...i 1 , '; Braswell
. Old West dormitory met Sunday night
for the purposes of electing officers for
the term and for a general get-acquaint
ed meeting. Eats were served, and ef
forts were made to have all men ac
quainted with the other. The dormitory
unanimously elected Zack Waters as
chairman, bob Williamson as secretary-
treasurer, and George Ivey1 as manager.
Jordan Conducts Contest
To Name His Bus
Quite a bit of interest is being shown
In the contest which Is being conducted
by W. P. Jordan to name his new 23-pas-
senger Reo bus. Judges for the contest
have been announced as . Dr, W. deB.
McNIder, Dr. R. B. Lawson, and Mr. C.
T, Woollen. Blunks for the contest are
being distributed by Mr. Jordan and are
also obtainable at his auto stand at
Gooch's Cafe. The winner of the con
test will receive ten round-trip tickets
The new bus is Chapel Hill's most re
cent addition to its Jitneys.1 It is of
greater capacity than any other bus on
the line heretofore, and represents the
utmost in Reo convenience and comfort.
Mr. Jordan is well pleased with his pur
chase and expressed satisfaction with the
operation. It is now making regular
trips to and from Durham.
