Duties as Dean.
DISTINGUISHED MEN HERE
Justice Brogden, Connon, Smith,
and Madden Here for Sum-.
Many new faces will be seen
among the Law School faculty

of these new men is distinguish
ed for his work in one or more
phases of the law. Among
them are Leon C. Green, the
Law School's new dean, Justices
W. J. Brogden and Geo. W. Con
nor of the Supreme Court of
North Carolina, Young B. Smith
of the Columbia law school, and
Joseph W. Madden, Dean of the
University of West Virginia law
Dean Leon C. Green comes
here from Yale University,
where he, has spent some time,
with new ideas and plans for the
law school. In the February is
sue of the North Carolina Law
Review Mr. Green has an article
on "The Path of Law School De
velopment," in which he points
out the need of making the law
schools more practical, or bring
ing the student in closer contact
with the .actual conditions. He
further stresses the point that
law students should have more
courses in the social sciences.
W. J. Brogden, justice of the
supreme court of North Caro
lina, was a member of the Dur
ham bar before he was appoint
ed to his present position.
Justice Geo. , W. Connor was a

78 to 48 Yesterday.
The Carolina freshmen cinder
artists licked the first year Duke
squad Monday afternoon at
Hanes Field in Durham by chalk
ing up thex overwhelming score
of 78 to 48. This is a better

beginning of the meet.
The high mark man of the
meet was J. K. Smith of Caro
lina with 13 points by taking
first places in the 100 and 220
dashes and second in the , 440.
Barkley took first places in the
m'le and half mile runs while
Fort reaped the first from the
brad jump and the 220 yard low

WESTMORELAND TO PITCH
ARTS DEAN SAYS
SYSTEM IS OKEY
Instructors Are Not Free To
. Make Ground Rule, As-
"The absence rule for juniors
and seniors passed for the spring
quarter of 1927 means simply
this i That the Faculty surren
ders its rights to make a point
of attendance as in exchange to
secure the right of grading stu
dents entirely according to the
equality of work done," stated
Addison Hibbard, dean of the
Liberal Arts School.
According to several students,
niany professors have announc
ed that if a student misses more
than five classes, and some as
few as three, he may as well
drop that particular course.
"This is " unjust and unfair,"
Dean Hibbard said. "Emphasis
is now laid on work and not on
attendance. " If a man can stay
away from his classes and still
do the work efficiently, all right.
By the rule, attendance is unim
portant. It is work that counts,
Everything is on a basis of work,
If a student makes any report
to me that a professor has made
such a statement in regard to
class attendance, I shall be very
glad to take the matter up."
According to Dean Hibbard,
the rule means that students
must take what absences they
will. Instructors are not free
to make ground rules. A com
mittee of deans is going.to study
this matter, so that when the ex
periment comes to an end this
year, they will' have facts about
how it is working. "To my
knowledge very few students
are abusing this privilege," said
Dean Hibbard "I think the
system is working Very well."
Given by Henderson
The Playmaker reading for
April was given Sunday night
by Dr. Archibald Henderson who
read from George Bernard
Shaw. Dr. Henderson pointed
out that Shaw was essentially a
religious and serious man, and
read a part of Shaw's provoca

Dr. Henderson said that he
wasn't interested in the argu
ment over Shaw's place as a
dramatist, told of the dispute-as
to whether he was a good or bad
playwright, or if he was a play
wright, but the fact that he won
the Nobel prize for 1925 should

considered , Shaw's "Saint Joan"
the greatest play written in Eng

reading was mostly from this

considered by many theatrical
critics as containing as many
dramatic effects as ' any one
modern play. He also read the

Coach Ashmore's . slugging
Tar Heels face two of their hard
est, games of the season this
week, the first with Penn State
Wednesday and the second with
the University of Pennsylvania
Friday. Both games will be
played on Emerson Field and
will be called at four o'clock.
Comparatively little is known
of the strength of the two Penn
sylvania clubs. However, both
schools have a reputation for
putting out good teams, and
Coach Ashmore is grooming his
proteges for two stiff clashes.
Both of the visiting teams have
been on extended southern tours,
and have been meeting some of
the strongest college teams in
the 'south. - '
"Lefty" Westmoreland, who
was to have started the rained
out game with State Saturday,
will probably get the mound as
signment in the first game, with
"Red" Ellison held , in reserve.
Odell Sapp, speedball teran of
last year's team, who has been
suffering with a strained tendon
is right again and will probably
work one of the games.
The scramble for places on
the Tar Heel nine has become
unusually hot and this week's
two clashes are likely to see
some hew faces appear in the
line-up. Satterfield,; Heffner,
and Finley, infielders, have been
showing up well in practice and

The Tar Heel cindermen re
captured the laurels of the four
mile relay for the third success
ive year in the . fifth annual
Georgia Tech relay carnival held
at Atlanta Saturday afternoon.
The Carolina team entered
only the four mile relay and the
two mile. Russ, Daniels, Elliott,
and Rhinehart were the men
who flashed around the quarter
mile track . sixteen laps to win
the four mile relay for Carolina.
They took an early lead and
were never headed, Georgia
Tech finishing second a half lap
behind with Alabama nearly a
full lap behind. The event was
a walk-a-way for the Tar Heels
and Galen Elliott, star distance
man, was not called on to run
the pace that has won for him
a niche on the National Collegi
ate Association's one-mile scroll.
The time for the 4-mile relay
was 19 min. 8.4 sec. Hoyt
Pritchett, lanky two miler,
placed third in the two mile
C The relays began in a drizzle
of rain on a sodden track which
considerably slowed up the ath

the sun came out and dried the
course somewhat but the effect
of the morning's downpour of

Chase Says Student Government
Strengthened by Recent Fervor
University President Discusses Early History of Student Gov
ernment and Some of Present Problems with Which ,
the Student Body is Faced. .
"The events that the campus
has passed through in the past
few weeks were a testing period
for student government, and the
students came through in a way
that strengthens faith, confi
dence, and devotion to student
self-government," said President
Chase in chapel yesterday morn
ing. "It was tremendously en
couraging to me." ,
Mistakes were made, and the
student body got into confusion,
as all men do. It was the human
thing to be expected. "The prob
lem is," President Chase assert
ed, "to get to work and find a
way to avoid these mistakes in
"The campus today faces the
same question that any commun
ity that has grown from a small
unit to a large one faces. It is
similar to that which faces a
country village grown into a
city." ' - . ,
According to President Chase,
when student government first
started here there was a great
simplicity of organization. The
students took the same courses,
belonged to the same unit, and
felt a common touch. Twenty
years ago there were only three
or four dormitories. Now there
are 1200 men rooming in the
dormitories. These men have a
right to conditions that make
possible study and the right to
enjoy themselves as long as they
do not disturb others. Student
government owes it to these
men to assure them these rights.'
About 1200 students room -in
fraternity houses and other
places not on the campus, a sit
uation new in the history of the
University. Student govern
ment has a definite responsibil
ity toward them.
Professional groups have a
risen that have a professional
consciousness of their own. They
belong to their own particular
part of the University.
"If student government is to
remain effective and worthwhile
it must solve these problems and
take into consideration all these
new factors," declared the Pres
ident. "The time has now come on
the campus when it has set it
self deliberately to work out and

Lee Kennett Speaks
To Epworth League
Bob Hardee Re-elected President;
Other Officers Elected for Quarter.
"Jesus was never convicted by
Roman court," Lee Kennett told
the members of the Epworth
League Sunday evening at their
regular meeting. Mr". Kennett
based his remarks on a brief
.which he had prepared on "The
legal aspects of the trial of
Christ." The trial of Christ was
illegal because it was at night,
and should not have been allow
ed under Jewish law," said Mr.
Kennett. "Jesus was asked in
criminating questions, by the
priest who was acting as pros
ecuting attorney when he should
be defending Christ according to
Jewish law."' Kennett further
stated that Pilot allowed public
opinion to sway his decision, con
trary to Roman law. '
Bob Hardee was re-elected
president of the League. Holt
McPherson was elected vice
president, and Miss Louise Med
ley secretary and treasurer.
Campus leaders are secured each
week to lead the discussions on
