WILL MAKE TALK
Famous Sculptor and Storm
Center of Atlanta Will Ad
dress the Public.
NOW LIVING IN STATE
Borglum and Family Are Residing in
Raleigh-Sculptor Will Tell
Story of Big Memorial.
The news that , the campus will have
an opportunity to hear Gutzon Borglum,
the famous sculptor of Stone Mountain
famej on Tuesday evening, will undoubt
edly arouse great interest in the lecture,
Mr. Borglum lectured on . the Stone
Mountain Confederate' Memorial several
' months ago xat Trinity college; This
lecture on the same subject will be given
in Gerrard'hall at 8:30 under the auspi
ces of the Chapel Hill chapter of the
United Daughters of the Confederacy,
No admission will be charged but con
tributions' for the needy Confederate
veterans in Orange county will be re-
' ceived. ,
Gutzon Borglum, whose fame as a
sculptor is deservingly great, has been
the center' of a storm of discord con
cerning the Stone Mountain Memorial
which is being carved on Stone Mountain,
near Atlanta. He has left his work as
sculptor there and is now in Raleigh,
where he has been joined by his wife
and children. " '
The work on Stone Mountain repre
' sents one of the most extensive1 pieces of
carving ever attempted. In the attempt
to portray a stone picture 150 feet high
of the Confederate army, the most inter
esting and difficult -conditions had to be
contended With. Work has, been going
on for many months and Borglum was
with the movement from the beginning.
He is eminently qualified to make an
address on the subject.
Some of his works are in North Caro
lina. In the Capitol square at Raleigh
his statue of the first Confederate soldier
to fall in the war between the states is
a typical representation of his work.
A huge audience is expected for the
address, when Mr. Borglum will tell the
story of the memorial and recount the
ways In which the various difficulties
have been overcome.
" IN DEBATE HERE
Speech by Brown, of Kentucky
JUSTUS SAVES THE DAY
Brilliant Rebuttal Prevents Victory by
The Carolina affirmative team com
posed of Malcolm M. Young and Ernest
L. Justus won a unanimous decision over
the University of Kentucky debaters on
Thursday night in Gerrard hall on the
query, Resolved That Congress, by a
two-thirds vote, should be empowered to
override Supreme Court decisions de
claring Congressional acts unconstitu
tional. John Y. Brown and W. C. Keller
composed the team' from Kentucky.
The features of the debate were the
constructive speech of Brown and the
rejoinder of Justus. Until Justus, the
last speaker of1 the evening, made his
masterful rebuttal, it seemed that the
Kentucky team had the debate sewed up.
Much comment was heard regarding the
excellent constructive speech of Brown,
of the visiting team.
The debate was one of the best and
most interesting that has been heard here
this year, f A larger than usual audience
heard the discussion, which was heated
and lively throughout.
The' Carolina team in advancing the
affirmative side of the query argued that
the present power of the Supreme court
Is not In harmony with . progressive de
mocracy, and that the plan to have Con
gress override decisions of the court is
in harmony with progressive democracy.
They further advanced the argument that
their plan would remedy the existing
evils in the system."
The Kentucky debaters, defending the
negative or ttatut quo, presented argu
ments to show that no further change is
necessary, that a change would destroy
the independence of the judiciary as well
as our present system of checks and bal
ances. ' . ' J
, The judges for the debate were Pro
fessor C. C Cunningham, of State col
lege; Dr. W. T. Laprade, of Duke, and
Prof. C. D. Johns, of Greensboro. Pro
fessor Walter J. Matherly presided over
the debate and Benjamin Eaton served
as secretary. 1 i

ON SALE MONDAY
Di Minstrel-Revue Has Big Pro
AN ELABORATE AFFAIR
Minstrel Will Show Here Wednesday
Seats will go on sale Monday morning
at chapel period at Patterson's Drug
Store for 'one of the most elaborate and
spectacular productions ever attempted
at Carolina namely,, the Di Minstrel
Revue which is to be presented in Me
morial hall next Wednesday and Thurs
day, April 1 and 2. This show will car
ry more original and unique novelties,
some gorgeous and elaborate specialties.
more dazzling lighting effects and more
startling features than any show of its
nature tackled here in many a moon,
One of the headliners of the show will
be Mr. Eric F. Massey in his Keith '.'Big
Time" 'act, "A Few Moments in Song-
land." Mr. Massey is a tenor singer of
great repute and one that i popular in
most all the important cities of the Unit
ed States., He has covered the Keith
"Big Time" circuit and also has worked
on the Orpheum, Pantages; and Delmar
circuits. He has broadcasted from Pitts
burgh, Chicago, Cleveland, Atlanta, and
severaTother stations. Besides, Mr. Mas
sey has given concerts in several of the
larger cities and nearly all the big thea
ters of this country.
Harry White, in the New York Timet,
says: "Mr. Massey's singing of Ava Ma
ria last night was truly a piece of cul
ture seldom found in any young Amer
ican. He also sang well with the Mozart
National chorus." The Washington Fast
says: "Washington has heard bigger
voices, but never a sweeter and richer
one. Mr. Massey certainly won his audi
ence on the Keith stage at the opening
matinee." "Montreal as well as McGill
university was thrilled at the beautiful
singing of Mr. Massey." Montreal Star.
Mr. Massey recently gave a concert in
Asheville, concerning which the Ashe
ville Daily says: "A most delightful con
cert was given at Grove Park Inn this
afternoon by a young Tar Heel. His
singing of the 'Prologue' from 'Pagli-
acci will long be remembered. Mr. Mas
sey also mastered the big organ and
piano at intervals during his concert."
Another big feature of the show will
be Mr. Ludlow Warren in his female
impersonation act, "A Mean Mama." Mr.
Warren, clothed in gorgeous evening
clothes, will give 20 minutes of "Blues
singing" and dancing that is' seldom ri
valed in these parts. Mr. Warren has
appeared in nearly all parts of the coun
try and on many occasions has worked
the same show with Mr. Massey. A few
clippings from the leading papers of the
country go to show the ability and popu
larity of his captivating act. The Wash
ington Post says: "Mr. Warren followed
the famous Walch and Reid act and sur
prised the audience by making the big hit
of the bilL His characterization of 'A
Mama with the Blues' was perfect and
he was forced to respond to encore after
encore." "Warren figured in a female
impersonation that drew prolonged ap
plause." New York Times. Richmond
Times-Dispatch says: "The court scene
in which Mr. WTarren featured was a
screaming success. Mr. Warren s danc
ing as Miss Celeste Le Roue was won-

SIX WEEKS OF WORK
J. C. Lyons Has Charge of Group from
In the belief that there may be some
students at the University who are con
templating going abroad , this summer
with the William and Mary Study Tour
in Europe, attention is called to the fact
that registration for this tour is "near-
ing completion. There are still a few
vacancies in the North Carolina group,
and any students interested should con

The William and Mary Study Tour in
Europe is a novel combination of a six
weeks' summer school and a summer
abroad. It is limited strictly to under
graduate college and university students.
Last summer a group of 20 college stu
dents, most of them from Virginia insti
tutions, trie,d out the plan, and it proved
so successful that provision is made this
summer for a double group, half from
Virginia, and half from North Carolina.
Members of the tour will sail from
New York on the Leviathan and Albania
on Saturday, June 13, and return to New
York in the first week in September.
The group will spend two weeks in
Paris and then Visit Switzerland, Italy,
France, Belgium, and England. The six
weeks summer school will be held at
Bagneres-de-Bigorre, in the Pyrenees
mountains, in the buildings of the Uni
versity of Toulouse summer school.
Courses for the group will be given by
American instructors, and will be taken
from American college curricula. Courses
will be given in English, economics, com
merce, French, and government.' Since
these courses are exactly the same as the
courses in our summer schools, students
can do the same amount of work that
they would do in an American six weeks
