Last Tuesday saw ten' men
chosen for the Senior Order of
the Golden Fleece in its twenty
fifth annual tapping before a
small crowd of about four, hun
dred people. Bunn Hackney
acted as Jason and the. Honor
able Cameron Morrison, ex-governor
of North Carolina, was
the principal speaker of the oc
casion. President Chase and
Horace Williams also made short
Bunn Hackney opened the oc
casion with a short talk on the
Golden Fleece, giving the
Fleece's ideals and require
ments. ' Hackney said that the
Senior Order was recognized as
the highest honor that could
possibly be bestowed upon ; a
Carolina man and, that a place
in the Fleece meant that a man
had attained the highest possible
peak of .campus s achievements.
Then he ' introduced President
Dr. Chase said in part that in
1919 education in North Caro
lina was faced with a serious
crisis. Until the war, the at
tendance at the University had
not been over 1,000 students but
when the war was ' over, hun
dreds of additional students
poured in their applications and
another crisis arose.' This time
there was not enough room to
house all the men who wished to
attend the University and the
authorities were perplexed with
the problem. . The question of
obtaining the sympathy of the
state arose. Then Cameron
Morrison was elected governor.
Morrison worked and slaved and
showed the courage to plead, in
sist and demand that additional
room be made at the University
of North Carolina. It is no ex
asperation that on Cameron
Morrison hung the entire fate
of higher education in North
Cameron Morrison :
Mr. Morrison, in his talk on
"Politics and Law Enforcement"
said that he was deeply inter
ested in all . the colleges m this
state and that he wanted them
to meet their responsibilities.
He mentioned by the way ot a
narehthetical expression that he
was fond of speaking way off
in the back-woods. "Neither I
nor anyone else knows very
much about the Fleece," he sta
ted, "but it is a beautiful and
highly inspirational order. The
"Golden Fleece has grown to be
the culmination of a man's deeds
during his sojourn at Carolina."
He congratulated the men-to-be-tapped
and consoled those who
were not-to-be-tapped, saying
that everyone in future life is
going to be tapped, in some' way
or another, according to each
man's respective character and
accomplishments which must be
built on a solid foundation a
foundation that the Carolina stu
dent must find and stand on for
on them will fall the brunt of the
burden of clean politics.

ness that must be removed and
the young men of today are the
only ones to do it. Shall our
government be strong enough to
enforce the law of the country or

V. P. I. NINE WINS
Tar Heels Got Nine Hits Off
Bond but Couldn't
Coach Ashmore's Tar Heels failed
to make their hits count Tuesday af
ternoon and V. P I. eked out a 7-4
victory. The Carolina batters outhit
the Gobblers nine to eight but never
could bunch over two hits in any one
frame. . - ; . y
Fulcher started on the mound for
Carolina but gave way to Ellison in
the fifth after he had walked three
men in a row in the third and been
scored on in the fourth only to open
the next frame by passing the first
batter to face him.
"Red" got through the fifth and
sixth safely, but the Gobblers pecked
him for exactly four hits in the
seventh, and these together with two
errors and, a sacrifice' counted four
runs and the Gobblers' margin of vic
tory. ' . '
It was three up and three down in
the eighth, but V. P. I. chalked up
one more in the final frame when
Dear singled to right, was safe on
second on a close attempted double
play which retired Tomko at first, and
scored a minute later on Mattox's
single into right, his third of the day.
Webb lost his hitting "jinx" yes
terday and bagged three out of four,
his first hit of the afternoon being
a double in the second 'inning which
scored Mackie for the Tar Heels' first
run of the day. Another tally was
marked up in the sixth when Tom
Young beat out an infield hit and
scored on Mackie's triple into left,
another in the eighth on hits by
Mackie and Sharpe, and the final in
the ninth when Satterfield lived on a
fielder's choice, took second when
Heavner, pinch hitting for Ellison,
was hit by the V. P. I. hurler, and
scored on Burt's slashing single into
center. ' .
One of the biggest thrills of the
game came in the third when with
two men down Fulcher lost control
and passed three men in a row to fill
the sacks. Willey, big first baseman,
was up, with a pole that would have
done credit to "Babe" Ruth, and fans
were on edge. Willey took two whiffs
at it and Fufcher issued three balls
and the "pinch" was complete, but
the next ball cut the plate and Willey
was left with his bat on his shoulder.
Mackie pushed Webb for batting
honors with two out of four, one a
triple. Mattox led the Virginians at
the bat with three out of four.
. Bond, V, P. I. hurler, while he was
touched for nine hits, kept them well
scattered and held the Tar Heels in
check. He recently pitched the Gob
blers to victory over Washington and
Lee, perhaps the hardest hitting col
lege club in the south this year, in
a game in which he fanned fourteen

for victory on such veterans as. Cap
tain McPherson, Elliott, Pritchett;
Rhinehart, Pearson, Giersch, and Wil

The final meet on Saturday will be
greatly enlivened by the presence of
the girls of both N. C. C. W. and G.
C. W., who have accepted the invita
tion bf the Stadium Committee to at
tend the meet.
Student Contributions Increase
In Latest Number of Magazine
Prometheus Finds Lack of Out
side Articles Causes Slight
Decrease in Quality, but Inter
est Is Highly Increased.
(By Prometheus) ,
The April issue of the Carolina
Ma aazine features a story, "Decent
Burial," by Lilith Shell; a group of
Dooms bv J. K. Moreland and "bep-
toids," a group of six poems by R. K.
Late as usual, the Magazine shuffles
upon the campus with only a medio
cre assortment.; However, student
contributions are predominent in this
issue, showiner either an increasing
excellence in behalf of local talent or
a decreasing amount of copy submit
ted by writers off the campus. The
latter seems to be the basic reason for
the decline of the campus' literary
magazine. . .
"Decent Burial" concerns the life
of a very poor and illiterate family.
The mother, conscientious and proud
and a wayward son who is the father
of an illigitimate child child by a
neighbor's daughter, provides the plot
and action of the story. The dialogue
is rather well done and the story
plainly but delicately handled. It is
interesting inasmuch as it is not too
long and concise.
The four poems by John R. More
land are mere poems. They are noth
