Fourteenth Annual Track
Meet Won By Charlotte

Six State High Records Smash
ed by Young Athletes.
BREWER HIGH POINT WINNER
Ideal Weather Makes Yesterday's Meet
Most Sucessful Ever Held Here
for High Schools.
Charlotte, High School won the four
teenth annual High School track meet
of North Carolina for the fourth time
yesterday afternoon on Emerson Field.
Charlotte made a total of 46 1-2 points,
taking seven first places, one second' place
two third places, two fourth places and
tying for fourth place in the high jump.
Four state records were broken by Char
lotte and two hy Winston-Salem. High
point honors go to Brewster of Winston
Salem with first place in the javelin
throw, second place) in the shot put, and
a tie for second and third place in the
high jump. Ison of Charlotte, who took
first place in the century and 220 was
runner-up with ten points. Brown of
Greensboro trailed with seven points.
Despite the fact that every high' school
track meet since 1913 has been accom
panied by rain, the afternoon was ideal
for the event. There was no wind to
slow down runners of rain to muddy up
the track. The fact that five state re
cords were broken emphasizes the pres
ence of ideal track weather.
Probably the most spectacular per
former of the afternoon was Ison of
. Charlotte. In the preliminary heats in
the dashes he simply walked away from
the rest of the field. He had no trouble
at all in galloping in ahead to capture
first place in the hundred and 220 yard
dash. In both events he lowered the state
records. The old record for the century
was 10 3-5 seconds and was held jointly
by Suit of Chapel Hill, Koening of
Greensboro, Tucker of Laurinburg, and
Smith of Chapel Hill. Houchens of Winston-Salem
established the old record in
Two other state records were, broken
by Charlotte boys, Millstead clipping 1-5
of a second off the old state record es
tablished by packer of High Point in
1925 and Fort jumped a distance of 20
feet and 10 inches to break the record
established" by Weston of Washington

The long fasting period which has been

the suspension of dances after Thanks
giving, was broken at the Carolin Inn
Friday evening when the local chapter
of Alpha Kappa Psi, commerce fraterni
ty entertained with a delightful dance.
The event came as a fitting culmination
to the dreary season of abstinence, for
it was characterized by gaity and rejoic
ing. The festive occasion was graced
by a bevy of the most beautiful and
charming young ladies from all corners
of the State. Demure high school dam
sels from among the high school week
visitors, and representatives from many
of the girl's schools hereabouts vied with
one another for the favors of feminine
charm. The jSigma Nu week-end house
party was responsible In a large measure
for the choice variety of female talent
present on the Hill. The music was
ably furnished by the comparatively new
Tarsonian orchestra and it proved itself
a thoroughly competent organization. The
music, the girls, and last but not least,
the enthusiastic spirit of the dancers,
sharpened considerably by the recent in
activity, on campus dance floors, all con

Coach Rowe Anxious to Get Likely
There will be a meeting of all men in

day night at 8:30, AH men that are in
terested in any way in boxing are urged
to be present as well as all the members
if the boxing team. Active spring train

This meeting is being held so that
Coach Rowe will have an opportunity to
talk to all the boxing enthusiasts at one
time and . to explain the purpose of
spring training. He will also talk over
prospects for next year with the new
and "Old men.
Spring training is being held to teach
inexperienced men the art of self-defense
and to give the old men an opportunity
to develop their weak points. Men from
last year's squad will be on hand to help
out the beginners. Coach Rowe states
that the training period will be taken up
with road work, punching the bag, foot
work, and sparring. Towards the latter
part of the quarter the squad will be
divided into teams which will compete
in regular boxing bouts. These bouts
will give the coach a line on his men
and may bring to light some promising
material for next year's squad.
Boxing is one of the most favored
sports at the University, which is shown
by the increasing numbers of candidates
for the ,team each year. Carolina only
competed in two meets this year losing to
Virginia hut winning from V. P. I. A
much better schedule is being arranged
for next year' with several meets at
home as well as on the road.

Dr. Bernard Reviews History of Uni
The -German Club, in its meeting on
Thursday afternoon, adopted by a unan
imous vote the by-laws and resolutions
concerning dances on the Hill, as pub
lished in the Tar Hebl Thursday morn
ing. These by-laws were drawn up by
the German officers in conjunction with
the faculty committee on dances. The
present regulations are a combination
of the old set of rules in force last year
and the new by-laws.
Dr. W. S. Bernard, chairman of the
faculty committee on dancing, Was pres
ent at the meeting and be explained the
clauses in the rules and attempted to
justify the position taken by the com
mittee in each case. He praised the
present regulations as "a masterful piece
of work and expressed the hope and
belief that it will work successfully. "No
paper, organization, or constitution," he
said, "is above .the personnel behind it."
Charlie Gold, president of the club,
stated that the present rules are superior
to the old set in that "the individual
pays for what the individual does, and
the majority does not have to suffer for
the misdeeds of the minority." The Ger
man Club executive committee bears the
brunt of the responsibility of the en
forcement of the rules and in this ca
pacity acts independent of the Student
Council. President Gold urged the mem
bers of the club to do all in (heir power
to help put the plan across and called
especial attention to the dances being
held this week-end.
The election of officers for the next
year was held at this meeting. Jim
Shannonhouse was unanimously elected
president. John Finley, nominuted for
vice-president, and Baron Holmes nom
inated for assistant secretary and treas
urer, were both elected without a dis
The club was reminded that all mem
bers not paying dues before April 26
will be subject to a fine of $5.00. After
May 12, however, all who have not paid
their dues will not be admitted to the
final dances. Freshmen will now be eli
gible to join- the German Club and all
wishing to do so should send $ 15 to
Winslow Mclver at the Sigma Chi house
before May 15.
Dr. Bernard, in speaking before the
meeting, reviewed the history of the
regulations on dances. Three years ago
the misconduct and disorder at the Uni
versity dances brought forth much criti
cism from the state at large -and the
President received many indignant let
ters concerning the matter. Immediate
action had to be taken and a meeting
of the administrative committee was
called by the President. Although some
we're in favor of the complete abolish
ment of the dances, it was decided to
leave the matter up to the students them
selves and the German Club was asked
to appoint a special committee to meet
with the faculty committee. After sev
eral meetings, the set of rules which has
been in use for the past few years was
worked out. During the following year
the plan was particularly successful and
the commitee was congratulated on what
was thought to be a perfect set -of rules;
however, last year there was a let-down
in the high standard of behavior at the
dances and criticism again arose which
finally resulted in the suspension of the

Seeking further laurels, Coach Bob
Fetzer's cindermen will journey to Char
lottesville next Thursday where they will
meet the University of Virginia track
team in one of the most grueling con
tests that will be held this year. On
this same trip, the V. P. I. track team
will be met at Blacksburg on Saturday.
The meet with Virginia promises to
be one of the hardest fought events on
the Tar Heel schedule. - The Cavaliers
have lined up a very formidable array
of track stars and have proven hurd
opposcrs for every team which they have
met this season.
For the 100-yard dash, the Cavaliers
will be represented by Cummings and
Schumaker. In a meet held with Navy
some few days ago, Cummings covered
the hundred yards in 9 2-5 seconds, and
made the 220 in 21 3-5 seconds. Caro
lina will be represented in the 100-yard
affair by a pair to be picked from Wood
ard, Giersch and Teague. ,
: The runners for the 220 event will
probably be the same as those for the
100 yard spurt. ,'
In the 410 yard race, Erwlng, lust year
Cavalier captain, is the strongest con
tender. Erwing covers the 410 markers
in 50 seconds flat. Raney follows a close
second for the Virginiuns with a time
of 51 3-5 seconds. In this event Caro
lina will probably be represented by
Edwards, Watt, McDanielsi or Wyrick.
Virginia's entrances for the 880 yard
run will probably include Leawell, a
sophomore who crossed the line second
in the Virginia-Navy meet, and who won
the half mile run in 2 2-5 minutes. Caro
lina will be represented by Captain
Jonas, Rhinehart, Evans, and Henley.
Captain Jonas should be able to handle
that section of the meet in fine style,
owing to the very good work which he
exhibited last year, and which he is con
tinuing this year.
In .the mile run Leawell will compete
wood, and Russ, while in the two mile
spurt Captain Risher is the strongest
against Galen Elliott, Pritchard, Under
contendcr for the Virginians. Risher
ran a close second in the Virginia-Nuvy

Final Count Was Smith 98 and Kyscr
The polls for the final rising Senior
class elections were opened this morning
at 9:00 o'clock and the race run off
between Kike Kyser and Red Smith for
president and Fuller Brown ugainst
Zack Williams, for secretary-treasurer.
Red Smith triumphed by a close mar
gin of 5 votes getting the final count
98 votes for president while Kike Kyser
followed with 93 ballots. For secretary-
treasurer, Zack Williams led with 108
votes and Fuller Brown 79.
At the first ballot came in Smith's
favor for president but toward the end
of the elections the majority of votes
were cast, for Kyser. ,
By far the most heated controversy of
the election was over the ruling that the
polls would be closed at 4 o'clock. At
the very moment before the bell rang
some of Kyser's cohorts dashed around
the corner in a "Carolina Cadilac" chauf
fered by Kike himself. Two voters jump
ed out to cast their ballots just as the
4 o'clock bell rang. Red's cohorts im
mediately affirmed that it was illegal
to vote after the bell rung. Sharp de
