Old John Harvard rose In his grave
Monday night and mustered all his

Southern Champions, and for the second
successive year it took all the forces tTie

Five whirling -white dervislies came in

Crimson attack with an offense that
never faltered, and the two teams stood

It was the second successive night
that the North Carolinians had been de
feated in an extra period of play. Sat
urday night they carried the Middies of
the Naval Academy to ride for two ex

.with a reputation to uphold. All of
classic Cambridge gathered to pack the
bleaches and galleries of the Memorial
Gym for a glance at the "wonder

N. Y. STRING QUARTET
IN CONCERT TUESDAY
The New York String Quartet, which
has been secured by the Music De
partment fori a concert in Memorial
Hall Tuesday evening, the sixteenth,
comes to the University with an en
gagement record highly lauded by
foremost critics of the country.
Richard Spamer, the famous music
critic of St, Loius Globe-Democrat,
paid high tribute to the performance
of this organization, when it played
in that city last Spring.
"Although the organization known
as the New York String Quartet has
not been in existence very long," wrote
Mr. Spamer, "the first performance
in St. Louis of these stringed instru
ment artists gave promise of a bril
It is evident that this concert, the
fourth and last of the series sponsored
by the Music Department in its en
gagement of national artists for the
year, will bring to Chapel Hill a quar
tet of unusual rank in the musical
world. Tickets will go on sale Sat-

Scientific Society Held Monthly
Meeting Last Tuesday
MOUNTAINS ARE GROWING
Collier Cobb Says Blue Ridge Range
Is Still Developing "
The program for the 286th meeting of
the Elisha Mitchell " Scientific Society
was rendered, last Tuesday night at
seven-thirty in Phillips Hall.
Dr. Otto Stuhlman, Jr., was the" first
speaker of the evening, delivering a very
interesting lecture on "Developing
Ultra-Violent Spectrum of Iron by
Electruin Bombardment" in the be
ginning he . said, "it is possible to
generate optical spectra by bom
barding a metal with low speed
electrons? If so, then optical spectra
can be classified as a continuation of X-
ray spectra through applying the' theory
of quanta to origin."
Dr. Stuhlman developed a critical
potential method in which he used the
discontinuities in a grasp to mathemati
cally interpret the wave length. In this
way be' found that a valence elect romn
could be torn loose from the atom when
the iron atom was struck by an 8.1 volt
velocity electron and the second valence
electron could be torn loose at 11.2 volt
He also showed that if a normal iron
atom is bombarded by means of elec
trons, the electrons will lose energy in
passing through the atom structure.
Such losses occur at definite velocities,'
which when interpreted by the quantruin
theory give you spectra ' exactly like
optical spectra as seen through a spec-
trascope. i .
The Society was then .favored by a,
talk by Dr. Collier Cobb on "The Sand
Dunes of Niigata". Before presenting
his rcgulnr paper of the evening Dr.
Cobb announced the results of a trip to
Rutherford County, made a fortnight

Winston-Salem Baritone Soloist Sings
Twenty Numbers at Seventh of
Series of Sunday Concert.
i'he seventh of the current series of
Sunday concerts was given in Memorial
Hall on February 7. The visiting ar
tists Was Mr. William Breach, baritone
soloist from Winston-Salem. There
yere twenty numbers on his program,
ill rather short and falling into clearly
lefined groups. .
The first group consisted of four re
ligious songs, none of which were well
known. it Master Ilaih a Garden, by
Geoffrey Gwyther, was probably the
best although Mr. Breach spoiled the
ffect a triflle by a prolonged trilling of
certain words. This fault of over em
phasic was also evident in The Cry

Group two was a series of unfamiliar,
semi-classical songs which failed .to
make a favorabloj impression. Their
lovenient as a whole was slow and the
interpretation correspondingly list-less.
Only Borowski's Song of Tristram
showed a touch of life.
In the third" division, that of folk
songs, Mr. Breach did his most com
mendable work. Each of the selected

PHI BETA KAPPA
.Honor Freshmen to Be Guest
At ' Wednesday's Smoker
of Alpha Chapter.
Sesquicentennial This Year of Found
ing at William and Mary.
Several weeks ago at' a meeting of
the local Chapter , of the Phi Beta
Kappa Fraternnity the Chapter request
ed that Dr. A. C. . Howell and Presi
dent Benton Pipkin prepare a state
ment for publication -concerning the fra
ternity. It was considered fitting that
such a statement be prepared at this
time since this year the Phi Beta fra
ternity celebrates the sesquicentennial
of its founding, it being the oldest of
LAmerican fraternities. In accordance
with the wishes of the chapter, Dr. How
ell and President Pipkin have written
the following paper for publication in
the Tar Heel.
"It is fitting that the students of the
University of North Carolina should
know that the local chapter of Phi Beta
Kappa is preparing to celebrate the
sesquicentennial of its founding. The
following paragraphs tell briefly of the
birth of this, the oldest American fra
ternity, and give an idea as to its Ideals.
"Xext Wednesday evening North Caro
lina -Alpha chapter will hold a smoker
for those freshmen who made the honor
roll last quarter. After the annual
election of members a Phi Beta Kappa
address will be delivered at an open
meeting of the society. Plans are now
underway to celebrdte adequately the
founding of this historic organization.
"One hundred and fifty years ago this
year, a group of men met in the old
Raleigh Tavern at Williamsburg, Virgin
ia to form a society whose influence has
never ceased to be felt in American col
lege circle. They were students of the
college of William and Mary, and they
met to organize a society which was soon
to become known as the "Society of Phi
Beta Kappa". At the historic first meet
ing on December 5, 1776 men, under the
leadership of John Heath, adopted 'mot
toes, principles, and medaj." During the
next four years the society was in . a
formative period, and fifty . men who
were iniated during that time are
well known as founders. Thus was es
tablished the first fraternity in America.
In 1779 charters were issued for chapters
to be established at Harvard and Yale;
the way was paved for the perpetuation
and growth of the Society. ' , .
"These fifty men, who set for them
selves the highest ideals of scholarship
and service for which Phi Beta Kappa
has always stood, carved for themselves1
names of distinction in our early nation
al history, a have many Phi Beta Kap
pa members since. TJiey led a distin
quished and auspicious procession of
great national figures, members of
this society. Of the fifty pounders,
two were justices of the Supreme
Court, Bushrod ; Washington and
John Marshall, who as - associate and
chief justice, served for over a
third of a century during one of the
most trying periods of our national
"Many of the other members of the
historic Virginia Alpah Beta Kappa men,
members of constitutional convention of
1788, that Virginia ratified the consti
tution. Others served as officers in the
Revolution as represetatives in the Vir
ginia assembly, and in various capac
ities in the national government.
"To give even a partial list of the emi
nent American's who have been members
of Phi Beta Kappa would be indeed tire
some. At random, it might be mentioned
that 10 presidents and $ vice-presidents
have been members of the society; 28
members have been honored with tab
lets in the Hall of Fame, or 44 percent
of the total number; 26 members of Phi
Beta Kappa have been honored by ap
pointments to the Supreme Court, or
over 40 percent of the total number to
hold this office. Five of the chief just
ices have been members of the Society,
and at no time has there been less than
two on he Supreme Court Bench! .
"Among distinguished individual mem
bers of Phi Beta Kappa are enrolled the
names, of Webster, Emerson, Morse,
Iongfellow, Hawthorne, Irving, Mann,
Beecher, John Quincy Adams, Lowell,
Holmes, Phillips Brooks, Motley, Agas-j
sin, Marshall, Taft, Wilson, Roosevelt,
Coolidge and hundreds of others. !
"And so the roll might go on through
all the . professions and walks of life
were college men are found. Among the
lenders will always be found wearers of
the Phi Beta Kappa key, upholding high
standards of this unique organization,
which hns had such an Incalculable in
fluence on our national life by uphold
ing Its ideals of scholarship, service and
leadership for its members"
Are Given Out
A comparison of the scholastic
averages of different groups in
the school for the past quarter
has been reported by Dr. Henry.
The grades have been changed
from A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, to
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 in order to compute
an average. (
. The average from the academ
ic school is 3.62. The freshmen
fell slightly below this with an
average of 3.82, while upperclass
men reach 3.1. The fraternity
average is -3.22.

X STITT WILSON
Forceful Californian Speaks on
LECTURES AGAIN TODAY
Will Make Spiritual Life of Man
' His Topic. f' :
The "third diraension"of man will be
the theme of Hon. J. Stitt Wilson's lec
tures here this week he stated in Chapel
yesterday before the regular attendance
of "freshmen and approximately 150
visitors. The Chapel period was extend;,
ed to 11 :30 o'clock, the lecturer taking
the complete hour for his address.
Mr. Wilson, tall, rather imposing, with
steele-gray hair, and eyes which capture
the attention of the audience from the
first, began his enthralling lecture upon
a blackboard where lie illustrated the
three dimensions of mathematics, length,
breadth, and thickness. Mr. Wilson. then
proceeded to draw a precise and aston
ishing analogy between these and man.
The three-fold nature of man, a time
worn subject for speakers, was present
ed, but in such a new and vigorious style
that the audience at no time could ac
cuse Mr. Wilson of triteness. He began
with the psycho-chemical composition of
man, in all his weaknesses and strength,
stating that he thought this side of man
was being stressed too much today. The
desire of pleasure, drinking, and vice,
were placed under this category.
Man's "knowing'' nature is his second
dimension, Mr. Wilson stated. Reason,
decision, perception, memory, and other"
attributes of mental side of man are
developed in this dimension. '
It is the third dimension of man, how
ever, which the visiting Californian ex
pects to bring to the Carolina student
body, he stated yesterday morning.
Man' moral life, or better still, his
spiritual .or religious life are being sore
ly neglected, he' said in part. Just as
It takes three dimensions in mathematics
to make a solid or a universe, so it takes
all three of these dimensions to make a
man. - ; '' '
Not only did Mr. Wilson make use of
a blackboard pon which he illustrated
the three dimensions in geometry . and
tlie graph of a human being, but the lec
turer often came down into the audience
walking between the aisles and speaking
in shoulder to shoulder fashion Still
he is not sensational; every utterance
carries with it a sense of power and
Mr. -Wilson lectured again last Fri
day night in Gerrard Hall, and will be
here through Friday night, appearing in
Chapel each morning and at Gerrard
Hall each night at 8:30 o'clock. t
A. I. E. E. to Have Dinner
This Evening At 8:30
Tlie members of the A. I. E. E. will
enjoy a dinner in Phillips Hall tonight
at 8:30.o'clock. This is something aside
from the regular program and all of the
members are looking forward to the
event with much pleasure. It is quite
probable that Prof. Parker Daggett will
favor -the society with a short talk.
Other brief speeches are also on pio-gram.
Classes -and the regular meetings do
not permit the individual acquaintance
of all Uie members of tlie society. Since
it was thought that a feed would serve
the purpose, the dinner was arranged
with that intention. The meeting should
prove quite beneficial to the new mem
bers. - '

Present School Year. .
TAR BABIES ARE

SEVERAL HAVE FLUNKED
(iernld W. Johnson, professor of jour
nalism in the University of North Caro
lina, has tendered his resignation and
will join the editorial staff of the Balti
more Evening Sun at the close of the
present scholastic year, according to re
ports in circulation here.
When questioned tonight, Professor
Johnson refused to confirm or deny the
reports. President Chase is out of town,
and official confirmation could not be ob-
tainpri fmiti nthpr finlirppfi-
'The reports bear all tlie lar-marks of
truth. It is known that when Hamilton
Owens, editor of tlie livening Bun, was
here recently , in aftendance at the State
Newspaper, Institute, he told several per
sons that Professor Johnson f would he
with the Sun next year. Mr. Owens spent
several days in Chupel Hill at tile time
as the guest of Professor Johnson, who
said then that he was not in position
to discuss the offer.
It is understood that Professor Jolm
son goes to the Sun at a salary of $6,000
a year and that he will find time to
continue the magazine work that he has
been doing. As holder of a full profes
sorship here, his present salary is $4,-
000, .and it would be limited to $4,300 for
the nine months he teaches. It is un
derstood, however, that the increase in
salary . is not the primary consideration
A Virginia paper offered him a salary
that matches the Sun' offer more than
a year ago and he turned it down. De
spite the universal impression that Pro
fessor Johnson's classes have found
great favor among, tlie students,-it is
known that he does not consider himself
primarily a teacher and has been con
sidering for sometime various offers to
return to active newspaper work.
Professor Johnson's going would be
regarded as a big loss, not only to the
University, but to the entire State.' As
an all-round practical newspaper man
he is ranked at tlie top, and his maga
zine contributions have won for him na
tional reputation as writer. He came to
the University a year and a half ago
from the Greensboro Dailu New, where
he was associate editor and with which
he was connected in various 'capacities
for a number of years. He got his first
newspaper training on the Lexington
DUpatch, at Lexington, N. C. . ,
' As head of the University's newly cre
ated Department of Journalism, he has
filled a most difficult position to tlie sat
isfaction of everybody here, and already
the effectiveness of his stewardship has
revealed itself in tlie work of his stu-
deutsv-.The University campus hopes
that ' reports of his going are prema
ture. . ''(

the topics mentioned by Mr. Wilder from
the floor. Speciul music will be pro

The talk by Mr. Wilder on the Evans

interest to young and old, church goers
and others. . There were about one thou
sand college students at the Evanston
