Track Star Injured
In Fall Over Ties
Howard Cox, 23, senior in the Uni
versity, from Erwin, Tennessee,
stellar cross-country runner, suf
fered a split right knee cap when he
stumbled and fell over the railroad4
tracks in front of the entrance to
Emerson field late Friday afternoon.
Cox and Barkley were finishing a
five mile training jaunt when in
jumping over the tracks Cox's leg
slipped from under , him', striking his
knee on a sharp rock. ; ;v
The injured runner was rushed to
the field house : at Kenan. VStadium
where four stitches were taken in the
injured knee cap. Cox was ' one of
the mainstays of the team which lost
three of its' stars by graduation last
year. He finished third in the V. P. I.
meet and tied for first "places, in the
State College . meet. He was being
pointedfor the Duke meet" Saturday
and : his absence leaves an immense
gap to be filled by' Coach Dale Ran

' Voters of bo.th parties will be able
to vote in the national election from
twenty minutes after- six o'clock this
morning until the sun sets at one min
ute after five o'clock tonight. The
polls are in the high school building
on Franklin street. Registrar Robert
son urges all those who are registered
to vote early as the polls will close 1
promptly at the scheduled time. In
order to avoid the rush he urges, that,
those who can, do their voting in the
morning.. .. , .... "... , . .. ...
Both Democratic and Republican
leaders are hard at work today lining
up their workers for the local contest.
Today the, keepers of the house do
tremble. . The last, bets are being
placed, and, odds are scarce. The
campus is more agog than any time
since the : last" Dempsey-Tunney fight.
Wrangles in the dormitories become
more numerous, and arguments in the
frat houses grow hotter. It is well
that, the end is . near. We are be
coming politics drunk. Our eyes are
r growing bunded to all things save
brown derbies and double chins.' :?
Bets are heavy, and they . give
Hoover the advantage. .One finds a
bout as many men . openly ' backing
Hoover with full confidence as there
are backing Smith. The majority
would like to believe in a Smith vic
tory, but common sense and hard
facts are beginning to sap the major
ity's confidence. . Hoover was as forth
coming as Smith money last night.
Smith money is probably harder to
find today. The staunch Democrats
are beginning to have misgivings, as
the anti-Smith men grow 'jubilant,
This trend is unmistakable.
The campus womenfolk seem rather
passive about the affair. It must be
admitted that' neither of the candi
dates has so much as a plugged dime's
worth of sex appeal. The feminist
element is not taxing its brain and
nervous 'system over the contest. It
is understood, however, : that Mrs
Smith lost co-ed votes for. her hus
band when she told Queen Mary of
England that she was "doggone right"
about so and so. ' V.
Tonight the long watch will drag
along hour by hour, and by this time
tomorrow everyone will have accept
ed for better or for worse the re
sults by 'word of radio.
There will be an important
meeting of the . Tar Heel staff
at nine o'clock tonight in the
Tar Heel office, it was
nounced yesterday by ,
Walter Spearman. Many
changes will be made , on the
staff and new beats assigned.
According ; to Spearman, every
man who expects to remain on
the Tar Heel must be present
at this meeting. ".

In the staid British style of debat
ing the three women upheld the me
rits 'of the co-educational system.
They pointed out that the co-educational
system prevalent in "England
today has always been considered an
example of success and that in the
future co-education will be accepted
throughout the world.
The representatives of the British -Debate
Union have been in the Unit
ed States five days, competing in that
time in two debates. They were de
clared victors in both of the contests
with George Washington University
and with' Hood College., The itinerary
of the British Debaters includes
most of the colleges and universities
of the Southern and Eastern- states.
The combatants in the debate have
all seen serviee on the debating plat

fishe was secretary of the University

and the sign stands guard over; the
total inadequacy of their costumes '
not from a . quantitative point of view
but from an appreciation of a rough
setting for '"our pretty co-eds." They
frankly admit that it's not because
the costumes aren't skirts that men
aren't allowed, but that it is because
they are so funny looking.
In fact, the order of the day is
to make 'em as funny looking as you
can. The ladies of Chapel Hill have
come to the aid of the maidens, desti
tute as they are of proper clothing
for athletics, and many a Chapel Hill
attic has brought forth an antiquat
ed gym suit smelling of moth balls
and reeking with memories of the
boarding school days of any one from
Betsy Woolen to Mrs. Mcintosh. ' The
"S' Mary's girls" were already pro
vided with the conventional basketball
bloomers and the hikers were equip-
ed with, hiking knickers.
The first thing about their new
sport that'impressed the co-eds is the
fact that there is a lot of "difference
in playing basketball at boarding
school and under the scientific coach
ing of Dr. Lawson; they have learn
ed that it is technique that counts and
they find that Dr. Lawson doesn't
