Tar Heels Even Basketball
Series With the Marylanders
University Avenges
Defeat of Monday
By Score of 20 to 14
Sides Leads, Scoring With Ten
Points Deciding Game
Here on the 19th.
(By Ben Kendrick, '30)
The Tar Heel quint avenged"
a previous defeat Tuesday night
; by beating" Maryland 32 to 23,
at College Park. Due to a unique
arrangement, the second string
of each team started the game
and played the entire first half.
The Carolina scrubs got off to
a flying start in the first few
minutes and at the half had
piled up a lead of 20 to 14.
At the beginning of the sec
ond period the varsity of bofh
institutions took the floor. The
Carolina regulars playing their
usual flashy game not only held
this lead but increased it three
points. The White Phantoms
seemed to have profited by their
experience of the previous night
and kept close guard over the
stellar performers of their an
tagonists. :
Sides, second-stringer, led the
scoring of the Southern Champs
by looping the ball through the
basket for ten points, Satter
field coming close behind with
seven. Of the regulars who
saw service, Rufus Hackney and
Billy Vanstory led with four
points each. Hale, star Mary
land forward, led the rest of, his
team and tied Sides by garner
ing ten.
The game came as a surprise
to most Tar Heel fans, as it was
not on the regular schedule, and
it was not decided that it should
be played until Tuesday morn
ing. As it is necessary that any
team interested in participating
in the Southern Conference
Tournament play at least eight
games with Conference rivals
before it can be represented,
Carolina and Maryland both de
sired to play another game, since
they had only seven scheduled.
This enlarges the Carolina
Maryland conflicts into a three
game series, with the deciding
game to be played here on Feb
ruary 19.

Battle Is Presented
To the University
(By J. J. Parker, '30) .
An oil portrait of Judge Wil
liam Horn Battle, founder of the
law school of the University of
North Carolina, was presented
to the University Tuesday morn
ing by T. H. Battle, Rocky
Mount, H. B. Battle, Alamaba,
and W. J. Battle, Texas. The
painting was done by Mrs. Ar
thur C. Nash.
Hill Yarborough, president of
the Law School Association, pre
sided over the meeting, making
the address of welcome. The
portrait was unveiled by little
Miss Martha Ann Battle, Rocky
Mount. - .
Presentation, on behalf of the
donors, was made by Frank
Spruill, Rocky Mount. Mr.
Spruill paid high tribute to
Judge Battle. A sketch of his
ife and career was given. He
was graduated from, the Uni
versity in 1820, and was grant
ed his license to practice in 1823,
or some years he was a mem
ber of the General Assembly,
and later, reporter for the Su

was appointed to revise the state
statutes. In 1848 he was ap
nointed to the Superior Court
s -
bench, but the Senate failed to
endorse his appointment because
there were at that time too many
state officers from Orange coun
ty. He was successiuuy appoint
ed to the bench in 1852 and re
mained there until 1865, when
all state officers were deprived
of their positions by the Fed
eral government. He was rein
stated after the state regained
control. He served some years
as a Supreme Court Justice.
A rising vote of thanks was
tendered the donors, after
which the meeting was transfer
red to the library where the pic
ture was put on the wall.
FROSH PICTURE
TAKEN TODAY
Another group picture of
the Freshman Class will be
taken this morning in front
of the law building. ; The
picture which was made
some time ago was not good
enough to make a good cut
for the Yackety Yack,
necessitating the making of
a new negative.

(By Ben Kendrick, '30)
Shortly after the beginning of
the school year Dean Bradshaw
organized a group of about a
dozen Freshmen containing sup-
J. posedly the most intelligent men
in the class. The group tries
to meet about, once a week for
a period of two hours in Dean
Bradshaw's office and discusses
problems which the average col
lege student is called on to solve.
The membership of the group
was determined to a large extent
by the results of the intelligence
tests given to all new men in
tance from Regular Staff. - - the first week of school, although

First Topic
The group took its first and
only ballot at the very beginning
to determine what topic had the
most general interest. It was
decided to discuss the question
of choosing the right school,
For the purpose of collecting
data, Dean Bradshaw in, chapel
took a great many statistics as
to why the student came to col
lege, why he chose the course he
did, how many times he has
changed schools, and so forth.
When the summary was finished
it was discovered that over
twenty were at this university
because the Freshmen did not
have to wear Freshman caps;
one Sophomore had changed
school four times; and one boy
was in the liberal arts college
"because I have to take this non
sense before I can take law" as
he expressed it. While discuss
ing this topic, Dean Hibbard was
summoned to defend his branch
of the University. After the
meeting, he claimed to have
