"William Speight and J. C. Williams
left here late last night for Richmond
where they will represent the Uni
versity of North x Carolina in . a radio
debate with the Unversity of Virginia
tonight. . - ,
Much, interest has centered on this
contest in view of the fact that it will
be the first radio debate ever staged
in this section of the country. Plans
are to make it an annual event be
tween the two institutions.
The debate will be broadcast from
Station WRVA, Richmond from 7:30
to 8:30 o'clock tonight. The query
will be "Resolved, That national ad
vertising as it is now carried on is
Tjoth socially and economically harm
ful." The Tar Heel team will argue
the affirmative side.
Both Williams and Speight are ex
perienced debaters and are regarded
as well qualified to represent the Uni
versity in its first radio debate. Wil
liams is a veteran of nine intercol
legiate debates. Speight broke into
the intercollegiate ranks when Caro
lina debated Marquette and, in addi
tion, represented the University in the
state-wide oratorical contest on the
constitution last fall. Both men are
- rising seniors.
' There will be no audience for the
debate in ; Richmond. Each , of the
four speakers of the debate will be
given ten minutes in which to deliver
a constructive speech. Then one
speaker from each of the two teams
will be given six minutes for a re

Final Ball to Be Held
That there are . three types of
citizens on the campus was pointed
xut by Dean Bradshaw in a short talk
in chapel Tuesday morning. "There
is, first, the lowest type that uses the
privileges of the honor system to get
by. This man does not live up to the
honor system. Then there is the man
who behaves himself, but who makes
no effort to correct the other man
who violated the principles of the
honor system." The third type of
.campus citizens was not discussed by
Dean Bradshaw, as the chapel period
ended before he completed his talk. ,
"Your welfare and character are
bound up in the welfare and character
of the University," said Mr. Brad
shaw. "This is so in two ways. The
quality of the degree that you will
receive is dependent upon the quality
of the school from which it is re
ceived, and then too the atmosphere
of the place where you live has a great
effect on you. An honorable man can
not live long "or be happy ii a place
where an air of distrust iprevails.
This air and character of the campus
affects you; so in this way the charac
ter of the University directly affects
After reading several paragraphs
from President Hoover's speech which
was delivered Monday night at a ban
quet of the Associated Press, Dean
Bradshaw made the following state
ment, "You may possibly think that
some members of the faculty get too
excited and stirred up about the honor
system, but it is only because we are
trying to show to you soma things that
we see and that you evidently do not."
The statement that unless the -University
men of the present day de
velop a conscience of a higher stand
ard there will be no leadership for the
future was made by Dean Bradshaw,
as well as the fact that the whole
honor system depends upon the faith
that, if left to himself, a man will do
the best thing for the group and not
necessarily the best thing for himself
as an individual.
Before Dean Bradshaw spoke, he
introduced Sam McNeally, representa
tive of the Student Council, who urged
that the students use their influence
to break up the practice .of some stu
dents of Using the pianos in the
music practice room3 without per
mission. The effects of use of a
piano by anyone who feels musically
inclined can be seen in Gerrard hall

Dr. Caldwell Talks
To L,aw Fraternity
. Dr. W. E. Caldwell of the history
department addressed Phi Alpha Del
ta, law fraternity, on "The Origin of
Law" Thursday evening. The ad
dress is the first of a series planned
by the fraternity in which faculty
members outside the law school will
address the group on subjects related
to law. 1
"Criminal law," Dr. Caldwell said,
had its inception in group ven
geance. Betore the rise ot the fam
ily, man organized into groups such
as the chihese tong.
"Law arises from custom, deriving
support from religious convention.
As society and customs became more
complex, it was necessary to write
down laws in order to clarify and pre
serve them. From this beginning
gradually evolved our comparatively
recent procedure wherein the State
publicly prosecutes the individual for
"As society became more complex,
laws became more complex. We
have now laws that are no longer
conventions, and whose breaking in
cites no group disapproval. Exam
ples of this type include speed laws
and laws against drinking."
Dr. Frank Graham will address
the next session of Phi Alpha Delta
Der Deutsche Verein

Continuing their great form which
they flashed last week against Geor
gia Tech the Tar Heels ran rough
shod over the Duke Blue Devils and
scored a ninety-two and one-half to
thirty-three and one-half victory yes
terday afternoon. Coach Fetzer's
men started off strong and headed
the Devils all through the meet. Only
by a good .finish was Duke able to
make any show. The Blue Devils took
first and second in the last event,
the javelin throw.
Carolina took first place in eleven
of the fourteen events. Only in the
shot, javelin and mite were the Duke
men able to nose out the flying Heels.
The mile was one of the features with
Barkley putting up a great race only
to be beaten in the final five yards by
Doxey. Nims flashed great form to
win the eight-eighty and ran it in
two" seconds under the State record.
Bagby took the high jump with a
leap of five ten and one-half. Perry
and Stafford captured the two hurdle
events. Captain Henderson led the
two-mile run, followed closely by
Baucom. Ken Gay won the hundred
and two-twenty dashes. Neiman came
first in the broad jump and was tied
with Cowper for first in the pole
vault. Sandy Dameron came first in
the discus, while Puny Harper failed
to place. Harrison led the four-forty.
. A number of seconds and thirds
ran the Heels' total score up even
higher than it was when they scored

debates here. He has received the
decision in all of them.
In a short but impressive ceremony
last Monday night, the robed and

the following men as members of the
organization because of their high
scholastic standing and extra-curricular-activities
: George M. Rose,

ternity, but as he is at present away

work, hewas notified of his selection
Dean G. M. Braune, of the Engin
eering school, made a short address
on the History and Ideals of Tau
Beta Pi. In his talk Dean Braune
stated that Tau Beta Pi was one of
the three national honorary frater
nities represented on the campus, the
other two being Phi Beta Kappa, th
national scholastic fraternity, and
Sigma Xi, the scientific fraternity.
Tau Beta Pi was founded in 1885 at
Lehigh University, and now has over
sixty chapters and 16,000 alumni
members. The local chapter, Beta was
established last December. Since its
organization it has been very active
in carrying out the ideals of the fra
ternity, the development of scholar
ship and of character, both of which
are considered in the choosing of
members for the organization. ;
"I am sincerely convinced that the
establishment of this honorary fra
ternity is justified by its upholding
the ideals of the founders," said Dean
Braune. "In my observations of Tau
Beta Pi at other, schools, I have seen
that it is contributing to the uphold
ing of the honor systems in those
schools, and I am sure that Beta
Chapter will justify its establishment
at Chapel Hill by contributing to up
holding the honor system at the Uni
versity of North Carolina.
"It is something that students will
strive for, because it, is not an orga
nization that stops with graduation,"
stated Dean Braune. "The bent is a
sign of brotherhood among over
16,000 alumni members who are now
members of the engineering profes
The formal invitation of the newly

Kie of the English department read

ing. This celebration grew out of a
conversation of several members of
the English faculty during which it
was decided to have some observation
of the birth of the great playwright.
Dr. McKie explained at the begin
ning of the program that there was no
connection between the title of the
play to be read and the event which
was being celebrated. "If I were
tempted to describe this meeting,''
said Dr. McKie, "I would say that it
was little to do about a great deal, in
stead of the other way around."
