HUGE CROWD VOTES
Fifteen Students and One Fac

A grand total of 1188 votes was
polled in the presidential straw ref
erendum held Thursday. The con
test was held in the name of the Stu

agement was in the hands of the
Democratic and Republican clubs,
headed by Phil Whitley, of Wendell,
and Tom Rollins of Asheville, respect
ively. Great interest was manifest
ed throughout the day, the poll3 be
ing crowded at all times, and several
orations were delivered by , campus
political leaders to their partisans in
the course of the contest. Among
the" more vociferous of the Anti
Smith Democrats was Miss Sarah
Purrington, famous as a feminine
political leader for the past several
years, who though not in school now,
happened to pass by the election
booth and could not resist the temp
tation to indulge in old time activi
An analysis of the vote reveals
that 744 students voted for Smith and
36 faculty members for a total of 780,
while 288 students and 4 faculty mem
bers voted together for Hoover for a
total of 392. The name of Norman
Thomas did not appear in the ticket
but was written in sixteen times, his
vote being divided7 among 15 students
and one faculty member.
It is also of interest to note that
Smith's margin is approximately the
same as it was in the straw vote last
spring, when he polled 509 to 261 for
Hoover, The University is said to
be a cross section of life in the state,

ties m North Carolina being regis

than the press and other straw votes

Strongest Line-up of Season.
COACH SHIFTS LINE,
Carolina Ready for Tech Plays;
Hoosier Clash Well Scouted
"Thinking, trying, toiling, trusting,
but the greates of these , four is
trusting," were the closing words of
a chapel talk given last Thursday by
ur. j.. iivae Turner, nastnr nf t.hp
irst Baptist Church of Greensboro
who is conducting a series of evange-
istic services at theBaptist Church.
n beginning his talk, Dr. Turner
said that at one time, there was a
banquet held in Philadelphia to which
were invited mayors, Supreme Court
judges, and other prominent citizens.
This banquet was given in honor of
A Golden Tornado that has engulf
ed ' everything within reach in its
treacherous arms blows over Kenan
Field this afternoon and will seek to
sweep the Tar Heels of the University
of North Carolina into its folds.
Not only has the rapidly moving tor
nado from Atlanta, turned southern
teams back but reached national pro
minence last Saturday when it swept
the many times national champions
from Notre Dame off Grant Field
with" a 13-0 victory.
The Techmen will meet a Tar Heel
team that gave them a great battle
last fall. Every sports writer in
Atlanta remembers the great game the
Heels played last year . when C the
Georgia team was lucky to eke out a
13-0 victory over the Carolina eleven,
and without doubt quite a few of the
Atlanta players remember that same
game when the Heels swept down the
field four times to within inches of
Tech's goal only to lack the punch to .
pub the ball over. It is well remem
bered how the 1927 Tech team barely
managed to score its first six pointer
and then scored again in the last
minutes of the game, when "Stumpy"

Sessions were held in Gerrard Hall

bute to the man, the great character.
'When asked by v a representative
of a magazine what was the secret
of his success, Wannamaker said, 'I
can tell you in just one sentence. That
sentence has only four words, and
those words all begin with the letter
T. That sentence was Thinking, try
ing, toiling, trusting "
In explaining these words of John
Wanamaker, Dr. Turner said "We
do not take time to think. Thought
life is ' thesculpture that molds our
character. We ought to .take the time
to think about the serious- things of
life. In reference to trying, Mr.
lurner asserted that we all have
ideals, but that most of us are con
tent to sit and let our visions fade
"Toiling is just another word for
just good old hard work," was Dr.
Turner's statement. "Nothing comes
not as a result of work. Trusting, the
crown of it all, is walking in the
light of the glow from the eternal.
It is walking hand-in-hand with' God."

downs. In conference nlav tho TToola
have scored 40 points to 35 scored by
their opponents. '
Both teams will send brilliant play
ers into . the fray. Coach Alexander
has more stars to use than Coach Col
lins, but none of them shine more
brightly. Two of the greatest south
ern centers to face each other in re
cent years will match wares this after
noon. Peter Pund will lead the Tech
men while Harry Schwartz captains
the Heels. In all probability there
will be another great battle such as
was waged last fall in Atlanta be
tween those two centers, Schwartz's
outstanding work in that game won
him praise throughout the South.
While the brilliant Pund has gilded
himself with mythical all southern
honor. Both of these luminaries are
Seniors and both are leading the
greatest teams their institutions have
known since they first donned varsity
But mentors will have more in their
lines than these two stars. f!nni
Alexander will have Waddey Sneer.
and Drennon along with Pund in his
forward wall. Three of the regulars
in the forward, wall of the Techmen
will not start against the Heels due
to injuries. However, their, places
will be well filled.
Behind this line there will be four
of the most brilliant backs in the
south, Duranf, Mizell, Thomason and
Randolph. These four men have
played sensational football this fall
and have worried all of Tech's op
ponents with their uncanny ability to
do almost everything a back is sup
posed to do and to do all of them well.
But Coach Alexander does not depend
on these backs entirely for he has
several reserve backs whose names
have been strung across the sport
pages on more than one occasion. A
plunging Texas Ranger, Father Lump
kin, heads this list. . Lumpkin is one
of the hardest driving backs in the
south. He stands well over six feet
in his socks and he packs a ' heavy
punch. The big boy has cracked every
line he has been against this year for
gains. Atlanta fans doubt if the
Heels can stop him.
