EVERETT LECTURES 7:30 P. M. GERHARD HALL s TAR HEEL MEETING 9:00 P.M. NEW WEST VOLUME XXXIV CHAPEL HILL,. N. C, TUESDAY, APRIL 18, 1926 NUMBER 70 Chappejil Elected Student Body Head On First Vote HEAVY MAJORITY Madry Elected Editor of TAR HEEL by Comfortable Margin. MAMMOTH MACHINE WON Ran Roughshod Over Smaller Combine Elections Took Place Before Easter Recess. S. CJ. Chappell, of Belvldere, was elected president of the University of North Carolina student body by an over whelming majority in the election held on April 1, preceding the Easter recess. Out of a field of five candidates he polled sufficient votes on the first round to give him the presidency. . A Big Surprise The election of Chappell was expected and generally predicted on the campus. Out it was thought that a second vote would have to be taken in order to give him a clear majority. It was a great surprise to many students when the final count showed that the four other candi dates in the field had not polled heavily enough to necessitate a second round The officoal count of votes gave Chap pell 653, Williams 341, Thomas 14, Sides 62 and Fred Parker 26. In the hotly contested race for the editorship of the Ta Heel, J. T. Madry, of Scotland Neck, defeated Luther N. Byrd, of Mount" Airy with 702 votes against 635. Madry was the nominee of the board and had served on the paper both as a reporter and as managing edi tor. Byrd had acted as sporting editor of the paper. Mammoth Machine Won The vote east in the election was the greatest In the history of the University, over twelve hundred students having per sonally filed into the voting booths and cast a ballot. . The election was held un der the Australian system and a free-for-all collecting of votes in the dormi tories was prevented. The elimination of this election evil however, did not cripple machine poli tics,. The, greatest machine ever formed here got under way within a remarkably short time before the election and swept everything before it. The fight devel oped into one between a small and large machine and, of course, the latter won. Time Ripe for It The carefully nurtured machine of the regular Carolina type which had been oiled at and greased upon since early in the year was, no match for the beautiful (Continued on page four) CHASE ADDRESSES WINSTON ALUMNI First of Series of Similar Talks To Alumni Groups. INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION President's Keynote is Individuality of Students Here. President H. W. Chase recently ad dressed the alumni of Winston-Sulem at their annual- banquet. This address was the first of a series of similar talks which he intends to deliver to alumni groups in the larger cities of the state with the purpose of Implanting vthe Uni versity in the center of state life. He is to .speak In Asheville, April 21; Hick ory, April 23? High Point, April 26; Wilmington, May 6; and in Charlotte about May 7. Dr. Chase chose as the key note of his speech the Individual attention which the University gives to its students. He declares that as much personal considera tion is shown to the 2,800 now in the in stitution as was formerly shown to the much smaller student body of 600.' "It Is not an Institution," he said '"where men are fed into a hopper and turned out machine-like without regard to in dividuality." Prom the idea of individual services rendered by the University he passed on to the numerous state services. He felt that the University was essential to the solving pf state problems because of Its undeniable influence on progressive de velopment. This Is best being done by nationalizing intellectual life In the same manner that industry has been na tlonlaed. In regard to this subject he said, "We must measure things not by ,h 'Best in the South' but by the 'Best W the Nation'. If the, University exem plifies the New South and serves it as 't did the old, It will be because it does exemplify the best in the Nation." As statistical evidence of the Universities Progressive spfrlt and position of promln (Continued on pagt three) CLASS ELECTIONS HOTLY CONTESTED Red Smith and Kike Kyser Fail To Get Majority. FRESHMAN , RACE CLOSE Kelly Wins Over Ferrell for Presi dency of Rising Juniors.

Definite announcement as to the date of the next contest will be announced in the Tar Heel as soon as it is agreed upon by the election officiuls. Like the general election the class af fairs were not devoid of politics. The two machines functioned a little more evenly, although there seemed to be some what of a slackening of interest in those offices. The contest for the positions was considerably closer in most cases, being won by the margin of two ballots in two distinct instances. Senior Class For president of the rising senior class there were four candidates, Red Smith, Kike Kyser, T. E. Clemmons and Zack Owens. Kyser and Smith ran highest and neither having a majority it will be necessary to hold a further ballot to de termine the winner. J. J. McMurray de feated Duncan Elgin for the vice-presidency by a comfortable magin. Zack Williams was elected secretary and treasurer and Ad Warren claimed a heavy poll over Johnny Graham for rep resentative on the student council. The Tar Heel is unable to publish the exact count in the senior elections be cause Bob Sides could hofbe located yesterday afternoon by the rejiorter. Rising Junior Class Walter Kelly polled a wide margin of votes over his rival, Billy Ferrell, for the presidency of the rising Junior class. The count in this ballot was Kelly 199; Ferrell 128. Artie Newcombe barely nosed out J. W. Crew 168-184 for the vice-presidency. Norwood Carroll rode roughshod over Bill Wiley for secretary, the count being 177-141.

' 1 GAMECOCK GAME HERE TOMORROW Poyner Likely to Start Off For The Tar Heels. Duncan's Tar Heel Had Mediocre Trip During Holiday s SOUTH CAROLINA STRONG No Shifts Made by Duncan in Line-up 0 of the Varsity. "''' The Universities of the two Carolinas will line-up in action against each other tomorrow afternoon- on Emerson Field when the Gamecocks come here for a game with the "Duke" Duncan's Tar Heels. This game promises to be one of the best and hardest fought contests of the season and should be witnessed by a large crowd. "i." Although the Tar Heels met with sev eral reverses on their northern trip, they are not the least bit discouraged and will go on the field tomorrow after noon ..with blood in their eyes. South Carolina has one of the best teams this year that has ever represented the Co lumbia institution and are coming here confident of carrying the bacOn back to their state. They defeated "Chick" Doak's . State College aggregation last Saturday by the overwhelming score of 12-1, demonstrating a powerful attack both on the offense and on the defense. It is not known who Coach Duncan will start on the hillock in tomorrow's contest, but it is highly probable that "Bill" Poyner will get the assignment. Although the big right-hander met with several set-backs on the northern trip, it is expected that he will come through tomorrow. Should he fail to deliver the goods, Coach Duncan will have Sapp, Westmoreland, Fulcher, and Whisnant to send to the mound. Sapp and Fulcher both pitched in several games on the trip and showed up well, and it Is highly pro bable that they will get a chance to dis play their wares in the game with South Carolina tomorrow. Sharpe will pro bably get the catching asignmcnt with Green being held .in reserve. 'Either Captain Jones or Dodderer will cavort around the initial station while Bob Sides will be seen In action at the key stone sack. At the shortfleld position will be found either "Moose" Tenney or Jonas, while at the hottforncr will be seen either Webb or Jones. The out field combination will probably be the same, with, Young, Hatley, and Mackie.
