Is Novelist, Biographer, Editor, Pub
lisher and Politician and Exerts
Powerful Nation-Wide Influence.
The Weil lectures this year, which are
to be delivered by William Allen White
on April 3, 4 and 5, will probably be the
most significant series since the estab
lishment of the foundation in 1914. Mr.
White is preeminently fitted for the dis
cussion of American citizenship, as he
has been engaged in national politics for
over 30 years and has a remarkably com
prehensive conception of the' American
people and their civic and social life.
William Allen White is one of the
most popular writers in the journalistic
field today. He is a novelist, a biogra
pher, an editor, a publisher, and a poli
tician. His influence has been felt all
over the' states in the national elections.
He has stirred the nation with his fights
for freedom of speech and against the
Ku Klux Klan. He has written editorials
that have started the people thinking
and kept them thinking.
Mr. White first attracted national at
tention through an editorial, "What's the
Matter With Kansas?" written August,
1896, in the midst of the McKinley-Bry-an
campaign. It was reprinted in nearly
every Republican newspaper In the Unit
ed States, and Mark Hanna, chairman
of the Republican National committee,
said he used the editorial more widely
than any other campaign document in
the campaign. The editorial represents
conservatism in its full and perfect flow
er. Since this time he has maintained
his position as a national factor and has

In Chapel Tuesday
"Gutzon Borglum is one of the ten
great sculptors in the world," stated Dr.
W. S. Bernard in chapel Tuesday morn
ing when he urged all freshmen to at
tend the Borglum lectures last night and
to bring a contribution with them.
Dr. Bernard deplored the treatment
accorded the Confederate veterans In the
South and added that a contribution
would be taken up at the lecture for the
old soldiers of X)range county. The mag
nificence of the memorial undertaken by
the famous sculptor was also, interesting
ly told, and the recent controversy in
Atlanta briefly touched upon by the pro
fessor. ' '..'''

the professional smoothness and profes
sional atmosphere than any amateur show
they ever saw.
The second act is made up of six "Big
Time" specialties. The first one is a

Tar Heels Get 2-1 Decision Over
HAD. STRONG OPPONENT
Jonas, .Chappell and Justus Composed
Carolina's negative debating team de
feated West Virginia University by a
two-to-one decision of the judges in the
annual dual debate between the two in
stitutions, held Monday night in Mor-
gantown, W. Va., according to a telc
graia received by M. M. Young, secretary-treasurer
of the debate council.
The query was, Resolved That Con
gress by a two-thirds vote shall be em
powered to override decisions of the
Supreme court declaring Congressional
acts unconstitutional. The Tar Heels
were represented by Charles R. Jonas,
Sidney G.' Chappell and Ernest L. Jus
tus. West Virginia; defending the af
firmative, was represented by Hugo F.
Blumenburg, Robert T. Donley and Har
ry I Snyder, Jr.
Carolina debating adherents consider
this victory to be a fitting climax to the
Tar Heel record of victories so far this
year. Carolina has won all four of its
contest debates, having defeated South
Carolina, William and Mary, Kentucky,
and West Virginia. The West Virginia
victory is considered especially brilliant,
in as much as the Mountaineer debating
team had but recently taken a tour to
the Pacific coast, covering 20 states, and
debating 10 Universities on this same
question. They defended both sides of
