Continuing the work of the law
elubs which existed last , year, the
Law School Association has organized
four Supreme courts composed of ad
vanced law -students which will ' sit in
judgment on cases presented by the
members of the first class. ; The en
tire law school has shown unusual en
thusiasm and interest in the work.
The cases which the young lawyers
are working on are actual and will
furnish an opportunity for practical
work which wall , be of value later.
The briefs will be completed by Tues
day, November 6, and trials will start
the. following Monday in the new
court room which was- presented to
tthe Law School . Association last
year. Arguments will be heard each
night, during the two weeks of court.
A court of three justices will sit
to hear each case. They will, study
the briefs, check up on the authorities
cited, hear the arguments, arid deliver
an oral opinion lasting from tens to
fifteen minutes in length. The deci
sions will be filed, and the losing
council will have the privilege of an
appeal to a faculty member who will
try the case. , - -

O. Max Gardner, North Carolina's
candidate for governor, finds himself
in a football dilemma this week. '
: And what with all the political
dilemmas; on his hands in liis fight
for Governor Al Smith, , not to men
tion his own candidacy, "Governor"
Gardner really shouldn t have to
worry about football dilemmas. ,
But "Governor" Gardner brought
it .all- upon himself. x The trouble
dates hack-to Max's college tlays
While at the then North Carolina A.'
and M. -College he played football,
and then, when he came to the Uni
yersity of North , Carolina to .study
law ,he elected to continue to play
football. , , .' .
Those were-.-the'days, dear fans,
when football playerswere permitted
to roam around from one college to
another and - play so long as the
coach would have them. But them
days is gone forever.
Mr. Gardner's son for instance, who
is a University student now,- would
never be able' to don a uniform for
dear,." old State should he decide' to
remove to West. Raleigh later, should
he play football here.
But to get back to "Governor" Gard
ner he starred for ; both Carolina.
and State before he quit the academ
ic walls. r He was a star guard and
tackle on the State team for several
seasons and captained the State team
one year. - ' ,; '
Max was graduated from the West
Raleigh college in the spring of ; 1905
and entered the University law school
that fall. Hepuld not resist the
call of the gridiron and soon was per
forming, wonders- for the Tar Heels.
The files of The Tar Heel, student
newspaper at the University,, carry
extracts from a speech which .the
former State "College captain ) made
at. a Tar Heel pep meeting that sea
son. Gardner . told the students that
he was at the University to study
law first and not solely to play foot
ball,' but", he also tqld . them that he
had played his time out for .State and
would - be giving "everything he ; had
to Win for Carolina.
That season the Tar Heels won
fotir such. games asDavidson, George-,
town, V. M.T. . and; Virginia,', and'
dropped; games ; to Pennsylvania,
Navy and V. P. I.' The annual Carolina-State
game was a O to.O . tie and
tfier line-up listed in the Tar' Heel for
that day . shows - that "Governor"
Gardner did: 'hot' Pay against his old
teammates. It was the last game be
tween the two rivals until after the
World War, 'as relations were sev
ered lor a' period of 14 years. ' . ! ; . '
Other prominent University alum
ni on that team were Leroy Frank
lin '. Abdrnethy," Hickory banker ;
Dr. Foy ,Robers6n,. Durham 'physician
who captained the eleven ; B ob Rey
nolds, Asheville" lawyer and politi
cian; and Judge '""Nat" Tpwnsend, of
Dunn. These and others may be in
the stands at Raleigh Saturday when
the Tar Heels and Techmen .renew
their feud. v -
Dean.Bradshaw spoke to the fresh
men at.' Chapel in Memorial Hall
about what a college man may ex-,
pect from employers in the business
world after he leaves the University,
with his sheepskin. ;
In presenting his subject Mr. Brad-!
shaw told the freshmen that .they!
were just beginning a college career;
that they had just passed the glamor
stage of football games, the hurry of
fraternity rushing, the. 'enthusiasm of
pep meetings. In continuing, the
dean pointed ou how well-fitted gra
duates .can cope . .with the require
ments t of the business world better
than non-college men. . . . .
Mr. Bradshaw stated that he hop
ed the members of the present, fresh
man class will conduct- themselves .in
such a manner that when they have
finished four years here they will be
better fitted to answer - the require
ments of employers who say they pre
fer men without a college education.
- The treasons, says the Dean, for
employersnot wanting to employ col
lege' men" are that they have an er
roneous idea about the" matter . His
first reason" usually is that students
are: thought to-lack initiative due to
having everything detailed and plan
ned for them while in college. The
second- reason for' their aversion to
students is on account of their hu
mility; they are also of the opinion
students cannot be taught' anything.
This- idea the established business
man 'resents. Thirdly,- the employer
thinks that the eollege man's stan
dard of living is too high and his
sense of thrift distorted. -Mr. Brad
shaw's' 'fourth reason - was that the
employer .thinks the college graduate
has too many bad habits and is lax in
conformity to discipline. - r '
"These are the reasons," said the
Dean in ending' his talk, "why busi
ness riien object to college students.
Don't let ' any habits which you ac-
class that insists on excuses and, an-
bis. Mke yourself one of those who
can arid will." v ' . ; ' ' :

President Chase would have anyone

mile radius of- the. University without
filing his intention to do so at least
seven days beforehand, that is if he
ertforced the strictletter of law listed
on the statutes books of the state. As
chief officer of the University1 it is his
duty to se that morals of-the stu
dents are not undermined by exhibi
tions 'sucli as snake shows, tight wire

performances. If during the week
before the. performance is-to be given
it is found that tight wire walking

Query Chosen from Five
The subject for debate was chosen
tion as being unlawful unless granted
the above mentioned permission are
theatricals, slight-of-hand, equestrian
performances dramatic ; recitations
dramatic representations, concerts
singing or dancing performances. Al
of these may be practiced, however
without the president s permission
five miles or more from thfe Hill.
We also came across the answer to
ayquestion that has long been in our
mindWhy the absence of pool rooms
in Chapel Hill? A law on this sub
ject states that it is illegal .for any
person to set up, keep, or maintain at
or within five miles . of ' Chapel Hill
a public billard table, ' or . any .other
table of chance of skill, "Ho, matter
what name it is given. : Nor shall any
one keep.within such five miles,' any
house, place, or ten-pin alley, 'or 'any
implement at which or by means of
which', any game of change or hazard
may be played. ;
Probably these statutes usually
work toward the good of the Univer
sity, but recently : an unfortunate in
cident arising from them was brought
to our attention by a student - who
traveled extensively during his sum
mer vacation. -" ;: -

subject of "The Quality of ' North
Carolina Citizenship." He was en
thusiastically reqeived, the members
following his entire discourse with
attention. . - .
.' The salient point brought out by
the Judge in his address was the fact
that the early population of North
Carolina was not drawn from the in
dentured servants : and criminals as
some histories relate, V but from tHe
good families of Scotland, England
and Germany. , : . . '
' He carried the progress of the state
through its existence up to the pres
ent day. stressing the point that any
delay in its progress was due to the
inertia and; self 'complacency of the

To those who have never heard the
English style of debating, the method
of' presentation by the three women
Monday night will come as an inter
esting surprise. The subject will be
more .discussed than debated in the
American acceptance of the term.
The (debaters will care little whether
they win ois4pse, and they may even
contradict one another on points, as
they are prone to. consider the general
principle and effect rather- than sta- ,
tistics and individual, points. -
While the Oxford and. Cambridge
debaters that have been Visiting this
country for the past "five ; years have '
repeatedly expressed their admiration
of the thorough preparation that
American debaters make for their de
bates, they themselves, study exten
sively for their arguments.' In ques
tions of political nature they connect
up their interest by speaking An ac
