G.O. P. SPEAKER
TO COME HERE
Maine Governor Will Speak on
ELECTED AGAINST K. K. K.
Arrangements Being Completed to
Bring Representatives of Three
Hon. Ralph O. Brewster, Republican
governor-elect . of Maine, will come to
Chapel Hill next Wednesday night to
deliver a political speech under the au
spices of the student body at 8:30 in
Memorial hall. . This speech will be the
first of three to be given by platform
speakers of each of the three main par
ties. Mr. Brewster won the election to the
governorship of Maine over his Demo
cratic opponent by a comfortable ma
jority. Much interest was manifested in
the campaign, not only because it was
the first in the states but also because
of the Ku Klux Klan issue in the con
test. The students who have charge of
arrangements for- the series of speeches
here are delighted in securing a nation
ally known political figure to present
the national platform of his party here.
Republicans in the town and student
body are making plans to give Mr. Brew
ster a rousing welcome to Chapel Hill,
situated in the heart of the solid South.
A meeting has been called of all Re
publicans In the student body in Ger-
rard hall Monday night at 9:00. The
purpose of this meeting will be to for
mulate plans of entertainment. ' A feed
and a chance for personal introductions
are being planned by those in charge.
Nothing definite has been given out
as to -who will present the cause of the
Democratic party and the LaFollette-
Wheeler combine. Plans are now under
way to secure nationally known men to
represent these parties on the Hill and
to have their platforms presented to
the students and townspeople.

medicine leads in the choice of subjects
for study selected by the 774 members
of this year's freshman class at the Uni
versity of North Carolina, according to
statistics just compiled by the bureau of
vocational guidance. -
It is peculiarly significant that medi
cine should lead in the choice of sub
jects. 'Completion of the medical course
usually requires more time and concen
tration than any other professional sub
ject taught in colleges.
Law comes second, with 71 naming it

one to three followers.
The questionnaire revealed that of the
774 students, 484 had determined their
vocations, while 290 were undecided. The
interest of those who were undecided
followed closely the lines Indicated by
those making definite selections.

COMES BACK TO
SEE HIS FRIENDS
Former First Baseman At Car
olina Drops in on His
PINCH HITTER DELUXE
Although 1924 Was First Season in
the Majors, He Contributes
Greatly in World Series.
"Mule" Shirley, idol of Carolina base
ball fans and pinch-hitter of the Sena
tors whose two hits in the world's series
did much toward the Capitol City's vic
tory over the New York Giants, was
back on the Hill last Wednesday.
Students delight in recalling that it
was here on the campus of the Univer
sity that "Mule" spent his college career
and attracted the attention of the scouts
for the major leagues. He was one of
the best swatters ever to don a Carolina
Shirley slipped into town as quietly
as a mouse Tuesday afternoon . 'from
Washington, and had sneaked away to
some sequestered spot to swap tales with
his old friends before the campus had
been warned of his arrival. "Mule" does
not like celebrations and he nipped a
fine one in the bud by coming into town
unheralded and later slipping away to
dormitory room before his crowd of
well-wishers had time to get together.
But a mule can't be quiet long; so out
he went to Emerson field to get a
glimpse of the football team at practice
and a glimpse was all he could get
between handshakes. ; Friends tried " to
shield "Mule" from the overwhelming
gratitude of his admirers but that was
about as useless as trying to stop the
rush at Swain Hall.
The "Mule's" arrival recalls to the
minds of students how he got his start
toward pr6fessional baseball. His first
honors were won as southpaw for his
home town of Snow Hill. At Oak Ridge
where he later went his fame as pitcher
and slabsman continued to spread. In
1919 he entered the University, and in
the spring of 1920 he earned quite a
reputation as moundsman for the fresh
The following spring found Shirley
sporting a berth on the varsity squad.
He was too good a hitter to stay in his
old position, so Bill Fetzer sent him to
the outfield where he could be used in
every game. Here also he won recog
nition from the students as a wonder
on the diamond. When the season of
1922 rolled around, the squad was found
lacking in a good first baseman, and
versatile man that he was, "Mule" took
the berth and played so well at the new
position that season and the following
one that his teammates elected him cap
tain of the 1924 nine.
"Mule" was graduated in the spring
of 1923 and the same year signed up
with the Virginia league, but returned
to college the next fall and entered the
school of law. He hoped to have his
contract suspended until he could com'
plete his law course, but the league be
came insistent "ast spring and "Mule'
found himself headed for the profession'
als sooner than he had planned, with
the hopes and prayers of the student
body behind him though they, like him
self, had wished that it might be post
poned. The Norfolk club, however, sur
rendered its option on Shirley's services
to the Senators, and thus the World's
Champions found him in their midst at
the first of their season.
In the first game of the world's series
"Mule" got a scratch hit when sent to
the bat and went home on the next man's
single. In another game he got a hit
which scored a man from second base,
and in the final game he substituted for
a runner but died on third.
"Mule" went with the Carolina stu-
dent body to Raleigh to witness the
State game Thursday, and thence to his
home in Snow Hill. He says he has not
laid his plans for the winter as yet He

Among the notables who were pres

Mrs. Edith Vanderbilt. Wherever the
"Mule" went there was a crowd follow

much interest as the game itself.
Peace, Meredith, and St. Mary's ,were
all on hand as per schedule. Cheer
Leader Huggins became so ingrossed
wit hthe ladies that he forgot all about
the game and during the intermissions
between halves gave a yell for all the
girls schools but left the team out in
Hundreds of old grads of both insti
tutions; were present and there were
groups of them renewing old times.
Carolina seemed to have the most sup
porters, although the" game was played
in Raleigh. ' Carolina was scattered so
much, however, that the yelling was not
as good as it might have been. State
college's compact bunch of . cheerers
made most of the noise.
Most of the Carolina students took
in the Fair, either that morning or
night, and report that it is as much
fun as ever to ride the merry-go-round.
It was a great, wonderful, tiresome,
day and it was a fagged out bunch of
boys that reported for classes Friday
morning, and, according to rumor, there
was quite a large number that did not
get back in time to catch their eight

Erailie Rose Knox, well known violin
ist, of Raleigh, will appear in Memorial
hall October 80, under the auspices of
Wigue and Masque. Miss Knox will be
pleasantly remembered by those who
heard her last year, especially on ac
count of her playing in front of Memor
ial hall after the concert.
Miss Knox has appeared in Chapel
Hill a number of years, and it is for
this reason she is coming back this fall.
She is leaving the United States in No

in a recent letter to a member of the
music department she said, "I'd be so
much happier on the boat if I had the
memory of one more concert on the
Miss Knox started out with public
recitals five years ago, and has played
every year since. For the last three
years she has been studying with Leo
pold Auer, who Is a teacher of Heifitz
and a number of the greatest violinists
of the age, and is himself one of the
greatest of teachers. Miss Knox has
been paying $60 a lesson. He told her
he expected her to be America's great
est violinist. 1 One year ago last summer
she studied on a scholarship at the Amer
ican .Conservatory at Fontainebleau, and
now she leaves .in November for two
years' study in Paris. Her popularity in
the States is evidenced by the fact that
the Woman's Club of Raleigh and sev
eral Kiwanis Clubs are financing her
Last winter she played all over the
country with Colin O'More, tenor, who is
fast becoming famous. She planned to
make her New York debut this year,
and has delayed it for further study.
Miss Knox will very ; probably pre'
sent a light program this fall, for that
sort of program has been most popular
with the students here. After her con
cert she plays on the steps of Memorial
hall, after which she visits several of
the fraternity houses.

Three Phones Will Make Up City's
Three police telephones, fitted with

along the main street between the post
office and Andrews corner within the
next few days; These will enable any
body to summon a police officer prompt

This is the way the plan will work
Suppose, for-example, that Mr. Chase

neighbor's house; or suppose there is an
automobile collision opposite Mrs. Brad-

aid or suppose some group of revelers
are . disturbing the quiet of the night
with boisterous laughter and shouts
then call central, and central will plug
in on the new circuit and start the bells
to ringing. A police officer is always on
duty on the block, and he will run to
the nearest of the three phones and find
out just where he is wanted.
Each of the three phones will be in
a metal box to which every one of the

One Carolina Sparrow Plays
Havoc With Riddick Field
and Eleven Farmers.
A FIELD GOAL AND TOUCHDOWN
Carolina Backs Outpunt Opponents
With Ease But Continue Weak
in Passing and Receiving.
Showing the best form of the season, .
the Tar Heels swept over the State Col
lege Wolfpack and won the annual Fair '
week game last Thursday by the score
of 10 to 0, George Sparrow doing all
the scoring by a dropkick and a touch
down and point after.
Carolina showed flashes of the form
that had been expected of her all the
season and which had failed to mater
ialize in v any of the three preceding
games, these moments of brilliance give
promise of a great team if only they can
be sustained. At times the Tar Heels
appeared as weak as ever and at one
time with the ball on State's four yard
line, three rushes failed to gain an inch.
The University's passing is still the
weakest feature of their offense, while
penalties continue to cut into their gains.
The game was marred by penalties on
both sides with Carolina drawing 14 dif
ferent punishments for a total of 110
yards, while State was penalized six
times for 40 yards. ,
For once in history the breaks of the
game went to Carolina and It was a
fortunate break in the opening period
of the game that gave the ball to Caro
lina deep in the Techmen's territory,
when Epstein intercepted a forward pass
on the 30-yard line. Again in the sec
ond quarter Bras well recovered a punt
on State's 20-yard line. These fortunate
breaks with the bad punt by State that
went out on their 15-yard .line, played a'
large part in the victory.
Carolina clearly demonstrated, how
ever, that they were the best team. 6 The
line held State while the Carolina backs
gained much more ground than their
opponents. In only one department was
State superior, in the aerial game. In
the fourth quarter they carried the ball
dangerously near the Carolina goal on
two occasions by the use of passes, but,
lucking any other offense with which to
supplement their air attack, were un
able to score. '
An unusual incident occurred In the
second quarter when the football which
Sparrow was carrying exploded. When
the Tar Heel quarterback got to his
feet after being tackled the ball- was
nowhere to be seen, having burst like a
toy balloon. Time was called while a
new ball was secured.
The work of Merritt and Matthews
brought joy to the hearts of the Caro
lina supporters. Merritt played his best
game of the year while Matthews was
all over the field, intercepting forward
passes, breaking through the line to
throw the State backs for losses, and
getting down under the punts.
Carolina gained on nearly every punt
Merritt and Sparrow were putting dis
tance and height on the ball while Ep
stein and Matthews kept the State backs
from returning any appreciable distance.
These gains on the punts were strong
factors in the State defeat.
First Quarter (
The kickoff was at 2:30. Jackson re
ceived on the 40-yard line. Dill gained
one yard around left end. Time was
taken out for an injury to Shuford. Shu
ford's wrist was injured. Jeanette took
his place Carolina punted 40 yards and
the kick was received by Sprague. John
son ran three yards around right end.
Lassiter made first down around right
end. Jeanette gained one yard through
the ifne. Another first down was regis
tered when Carolina was offside. John
son went around left end for three yards.
Whipple's pass was Intercepted by Ep
stein. The ball was Carolina's on State's
30-yard line. A pass by Devin was in
completed to Braswell. Fordham for
Carolina gained four yards through the
line. Carolina was penalized for offside.
A pass Devin to Dill failed. State was
offside and was penalized. Carolina got
first down on the penalty. Merritt got
six yards through left tackle. On the
next play Carolina was offside. Ford
ham went five yards through the line.
Fordham failed to gain on a line plunge.
Carolina again was penalized for off
sides. Devin passed to Merritt but it .
was grounded. Merritt failed to gain
through line on a trick play,- the ball
going to State on her 30-yard line. John
son failed to gain on right end run as
he stumbled. A pass Ripple to Jeanette
was completed and then fumbled, and
was recovered by Sprague for ' State.
