Duke Students Are
Acquitted oh Charge
. Of Damaging Autos
Three Duke University students
were unceremoniously lodged in the
Durham bastile last Friday night,
where they remained until next tlay.
It seems that the Duke students have
been troubled for some time by having
their car3 made collegiate overnight,
and Friday night officer Schachner
heard noises that sounded suspicious.
The boys happening to be in the vi
cinity, they were arrested and placed
Saturday morning the boys, J. A.
Sharpe, Jr., Wade Adams, and Arthur
Norbeath, were arraigned before the
recorder's court, but they were able
to prove that they were in no way im
plicated in the practice of stripping
automobiles. It is stated that the boys
asked to be taken to Dean Wanna
maker in order to prove their identity
when they were arrested, but this

Baby Deacons Meet
Tar Babies Today
While the varsity baseball team is
idle this week-end, local fans will
have an opportunity to see the Tar
Babies in action here this afternoon
when they meet the Baby Deacons
on Emerson Field at three o'clock.
These two teams have met most of
the Big Five freshman teams, and
by comparative scores they are fairly
evenly matched. Layton or Green
will probably take the mound for the
Tar Babies in the attempt to win over
the Baby Deacons;-' i r ''t
that of giving administrative positions
to members of the board. Most stu
dents of government feel that the
county manager, like the city mana
ger, should be an independent of
ficial, hired by the board from within
or without the county upon the basis
of merit alone and without regard to
his political affiliations. On the
other hand, there is something to be
said for selecting a manager from
among those .who are already ac
quainted with the county and its ad
ministrative problems. Guilford of
licials express a preference for the
existing arrangement; but many citi
zens of the county who are perfectly
satisfied with the manager's work
would have preferred to have him re
sign from the board.

Bernard to Address
Student Bible Class
Tomorrow morning at 9:45 Dr. W.
S. Bernard will address the student
bible class of the Methodist church
on "The Cult of the Dividend."
Dr. Bernard is well known to the
older students of the Chapel Hill
community, as he taught a class of
over 200 boys before his work re
quired that he cease to participate in
this activity. .
He has consented, however, to
teach the class throughout the re
mainder of the Spring Quarter.

he last election. One of the five
members has been made chairman,
another manager, and a third, pur
chasing agent. The chairman and the
manager are Democrats and the pur
chasing agent is a Republican. The
chairman devotes a considerable por
tion-of his time to his office and re
ceives a salary of $1800. The mana
ger and the purchasing agent each
devotes his whole time, and the sala
ries paid are ?5850 and ?24UU res
pectively. The other two members of
the board receive $300 a year in ad
dition to $5 per diem and mileage for
attending board meetings. The pur
chasing agent is furnished an auto
mobile; the county manager provides
and operates his own car.
One of the greatest benefits that
has been derived from the new plan is
the dispatch which business can be
transacted. Heretofore a person hav
ing business with the county had to
wait for a session of the board; now
the manager can give him an immedi
ate answer. The board has been
generous in delegating authority to
the manager and he in turn has been
careful not to abuse this power. Very
often he confers with the chairman
or the purchasing agent or both of
them before making an important de
cision. Nevertheless the power to act
without waiting for a session of the
board greatly expedites administra
tion. The people have already learn
ed to bring their concerns directly to
the manager, and if he does not have
the authority to act he can at least
investigate and have a recommenda
tion ready for the board when it
Another benefit of the county
manager system is departmental co
ordination and centralized responsi
bility. A few weeks ago a serious
storm did much damage to the roads
and bridges. The manager immediate
ly mobilized all the road forces and
had the roads ready for traffic with
in a few hours. Every subordinate
reports to the manager for instruc
tions each morning. Telephone con
nections have been made with all

in uuiiiora county tne manager
does not perform the duties of county
accoutant or of tax supervisor. These
duties are performed, as they have
been for many years, by Willis Booth,
formerly county auditor. There is
the fullest cooperation between the
two offices. Guilford necessarily has
a larger staff of officials than the
average county requires, but no
county needs any less unity.
The only objection the writer has
heard against the Guilford system is
