Chappejil Elected Student
Body Head On First Vote
Madry Elected Editor of TAR
HEEL by Comfortable
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

First of Series of Similar Talks
To Alumni Groups.
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

Red Smith and Kike Kyser Fail
To Get Majority.
Kelly Wins Over Ferrell for Presi
dency of Rising Juniors.
The election of the officers for the
three classes, Rising Senior Class, "Rising
Junior Class and Rising Sophomore Class
were in most cases hotly contested. In
two of the offices, the president of the
Senior class and Student council repre
sentative for the rising Junior' class,
there was a majority of the votes cast
and a second election to determine the
winner of these offices will be held soon.
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. Tom Young
was the nominee for treasurer. ; In the
contest for the student council represent
ative no candidate polled a majority.
Core and Lipscombe had pluralities over
Norman Block and Ben Eaton. The date
for the runoff has not yet been set be
cause Manly Williamson, president of
the class, has not returned to school
since Easter. The ballots cast for the
Student Council office were as follows:
Core 117, Lipscombe 94, Block 73,-Eaton
Rising Sophomore Class
Henry Satterfield was the only nominee
for president of the class and polled a
total of 368 votes. Charley Thomas drew
an even couple of hundred votes to win
the vice-presidency over Samuel Wade
who trailed with 170. For secretary
Charles Wood nosed out Clyde Eby
182-174. For treasurer Walter Brown
won from George' Lockhart by two votes
179-177. And in the race for student
councilman the office was also decided
by a margin of two votes, Donald Mc
Rae winning from Harry Schwartz 184

The Universities of the two Carolinas

of the season and should be witnessed
by a large crowd.

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

will be found either "Moose" Tenney or
