Carolina Is Not Implicated

Fetzer and Collins Declare University Involved Very Little In
Accusations of Professionalism; Interest Wanes
In Southern Colleges.
o
Interest in the Carnegie investigation of college athletics
is rapidly dying down on the Carolina campus and throughout
the South, as it becomes clear that Carolina is implicated not at
all and most other southern colleges very , little in the dishonest
practices denounced by the Carnegie investigators.
"It doesn't concern us," is thet
attitude
University athletic of
ficials are taking toward the in
vestigation. Students have al
most stopped talking about it,
and the Raleigh Times was the
only North Carolina paper in
which references to the scandal
could be found yesterday.
Featured in North
Protests by college officials
and additional scandal from the
offices of the Carnegie founda
tion are still being featured in
Northern papers, however, as
the athletic situation in many
northern colleges is involved
very deeply in commercializa
tion, i
"I don't see why the Carnegie
people have given out this in
formation before their investiga
tion is finished," said Coach Rob
' ert A. Fetzer, director of ath
letics, when questioned yester
day. , "To. me it; seems ; half
baked, but I can't see how it will
harm the University.
"The investigators came down
here some time ago," he contin
ued, "and we cooperated with
them in every way we could.
They haven't said anything det
rimental to the University as far
as I can see. In fact they men
tion North Carolina only once.
Criticisms Unwarranted
"The newspapers said the di
rector of athletics here had tak
en over duties the director of
physical education should right
fully have. As a matter of fact,
we really have no department of
physical education ; if the ath
letic association is trying to take
its place, that should have
brought us favorable comment
instead of criticism."
Professor Robert D. W. Con
nor, a member of the faculty
committee on athletics, declined
to say anything about the Car
negie investigation. "It doesn't
involve us and the less said
about it the better," he re
marked. The other member of the fac
ulty athletic committee, Profes
sor Herman G. Bailey, could not
be reached yesterday. Presi
. dent Chase continued to hold the
silence he has maintained since
the nreliminary announcement
of the report was made public.

ENGINEERS ARE
B ACK FROM TOUR
Senior Electrical Engineers Visit
Charlotte, Badin, and
Norwood.
The senior class in electrical
engineering and three profes
sors of the department return
ed Friday night from a two day
trip during which they attended
the meeting of the North Caro
lina branch of the American In
stitute of Electrical Engineers
held at Charlotte and made in
spections of several electrical
developments in the state.
The entire class attended the
meetings of the Institute Wed
nesday evening and Thursday.
After the regular inspection of
the Mountain Island Hydro
electric Station and the River-
bend Steam Plant, Which was a
part of the program of the In
stitute's meeting, the group
made inspection trips of the Car
olina Light and Power Com
pany's station at Norwood and
the plant of the Aluminum Com
pany of America at Badin.
Members of the class report
that during their entire trip
they were treated with the ut
most courtesy by officials of the
companies which they visited.
TVia inspection of the two
Duke Power Company projects
at mountain Island and River
bend were made as a part of the
program of the regular state
meeting. The Riverbend Steam
Plant was recently completed
and is now the largest steam
plant for the making of electri
city in the South. The ultimate
capacity of the plant is four
times its present capacity.
On the way back from Char
lotte, the group stopped at the
Norwood Station of the Carolina
Light and Power Company at
Norwood, a few miles from Al
bemarle. One member of the
nartv reported that a novel fea
ture of this development is that
the generating units instead of
being covered as in most plants
are exposed on the back of the
dam. '
The class plans to attend the
next meeting of the North Caro
lina branch of the A. I. E.

Rural Social-Economics Col

By J. P. Huskins
The dedication of the Univer

capacity and greater facilities,
asures increased activity in the
building up of two important

The modern trend in educa

day of the large private library
is passing. Fewer, and fewer

fashion that the North Carolina

The North Carolina Collection
For the past twenty-five years
the University has been actively
engaged in the building up of the
North Carolina collection. At
present this assortment of
historical material represents
some 40,000 volumes.
The movement proper had its

'Protective Tariff
Great Benefit
Editor's note: This article
was written by an undergrad
uate in an effort to refute the
arguments of E. J. Woodhouse,
University professor of govern
ment, who denounced the protec
tive tariff in Thursday's issue of
this newspaper.
(By a Pennsylvania Republican)
The "protective tariff" is by
no means the greatest curse that
has ever been inflicted upon the
people of the United States, it
is on the contrary a positive ben
efit. It protects our laborers and
their standard of living from the
competition of the more poorly
paid laborers of foreign coun
tries. It is very easy to sit in a
chair and theorize about evils of
a certain system, but I venture
to state that if Professor Wood
house had to earn his living in
a steel mill, he would feel very
different about a system which
saves him from the terrible con
ditions that surround a foreign
Local Negro Beats
Up White Man Who
Insulted His Mule
'You can't kid a nigger about
his mule' is an old axiom of the
South. But evidently Clyde
Wheat did noti know it or chose
to disregard it, and as a result
he is suffering from a much bat
tered and bruised head.
It all started when Wheat,
local white man, began to guy
Harvey. Williams, about his whis
kers. Wheat was drunk and
Williams was sick, so the negro
chose to ignore the remarks. But
Wheat met his Waterloo when
he asked Williams who owned
- -
the mule he was driving.
"Ain't none of yoh business,"
Williams retorted verbally, and
as that did not seem sufficient
he leaped off his wagon and
crowned the too verbose Wheat
with a lump of coal from a most
handy coal bin nearby.
The affray took' place in front
of the police station while the
minions of the law were at the
football game yesterday. Dep
uty Sheriff Hearn happened to
be in the office, and promptly ar
rested the men.
They were later released on a
$100 bond until court Monday
in order that Wheat might get
aid for his head.

laborer even in such forward
looking countries as Germany
and Belgium.
The writer has first-hand
knowledge of a report made by
the general superintendent of
the largest steel mill (privately
owned) in Pittsburgh about the
conditions prevalent among the
working classes in Germany to
day. In no way do they enjoy
the many advantages enjoyed by
the American working man,
those advantages which are
guaranteed to him by the "pro
tective tariff." Even in the most
up-to-date mills they are not
provided with places to drink.
While the American mill-worker
is provided with unlimited quan
tities of ice-water, the German
has to send out to buy some beer
in order to quench his thirst, and
mill workers get thirsty often.
Accordingly many have to go
withous a drink all day. It is
very difficult to buy gasolin.e in

DENOUNCED BY
FRANK GRAHAM
University Professor Makes Im
promptu Talk ; Deplores Night
Work for Women.
"The 60 hour week is a dis
grace to the commonwealth of
North Carolina," declared Frank
Graham in an address before a
social gathering at the Presby
terian church Friday evening.
"And this state is one of the few
civilized places in the world
which permits it. it is a re
flection upon the sincerity of our
religion," he continued, "that
three countries allow night work
for women China, Turkey and
the United States."
In outline, Mr. Graham's talk
was as follows : (1) As mem
bers of Christian churches we
need a new sense of social res
ponsibility in the present indus
trial situation. .
(2) Our social adjustment
lags far behind our mechanical
advance.
(3) We need to study social
and industrial history, as writ
ten into the records of the past
150 years, in order that we may
be intelligent in making social
adjustment.
(4) Concretely, we need in
North Carolina to : reduce the
60 hour week, abolish night work
for women and eliminate the
fourth great clause in the Child
Labor act. ,
This is the substance of talks
that Mr. Graham has been mak
ing all over this state for the last
four years.
At the conclusion of his talk
Mr. Graham invited students to
join in the session of the North
Carolina Conference for Social
Service, which plans to take up
this subject at its next meeting.
In addition to Mr. Graham's
impromptu address, the program
of the evening, which was en
tirely informal, consisted of a
rendering of English, Spanish,
and Philippine music by Alfredo
Nazareno,.a native Filipino who
is taking work here at the Uni
versity, and the singing of folk
songs oy an oi xne guests, wno
professed the ability to carry a
tune. Parson Moss and Noah
Goodrick were hosts.
PEEK NOT TO SPEAK AT
UNIVERSITY THIS FALL
Efforts to obtain F, W. Peek,
prominent consulting electrical
engineer, to speak before the
University student branch of the
A. I. E. E. this fall have had to
be abandoned because Chapel
Hill is not on his itinerary this
fall. .
16-14 Defeat at Hands of Gob
blers Last Year Is Avenged
By Decisive Win.
Sweeping over the Gobblers
of V. P. I., a Tar Heel attack,
battered down to the merest
show of resistance last Saturday,
rose again to its old might on
Kenan field yesterday afternoon
to swamp the Virginians under
an avalanche of passes and line
attacks by the score of 38-13.
The orange wave of Carolina
brushed aside" the thrusts of the
Gobblers and surged down the
field, smothering the V. P. I. of
fense to tally touchdown after
touchdown almost at will. The
spectacle of a mighty football
team placed opposite a better-than-average
eleven revealed to
8,000 fans sparkling exhibitions
of good football throughout the
contest.
Held scoreless for the entire
first quarter, the Carolina at
tack moved across the V. P. I.
goal line four times in the sec
ond Quarter to score a total of
26 points. The V. P. I. defense
was powerless before the ter
rific onslaughts of the deter
mined Tar Heels.
Time after time in the first
half the V. P. I. line held the
Carolina backs to- six or . seven
yards for three downs, only to
see a surprising overhead attack
carry the ball far down the
field. Five passes accounted for
92 yards and were istrumental
in all four touchdowns during
the first half.
The second quarter opened
with Carolina in possession of
the ball on the V. P. I. 12 yard
line. The V. P. I. defense stiff
ened and two tries through the
line brought the ball back to the
18 yard line. A short pass,
Magner to Parsley, returned the
ball to V. -P. I.'s six yard line.
Surprising the V. P. I. defense
with another pass over the goal
line, Magner hurled the ball to
Nash for the first touchdown.
The quarter was only two min
utes old. :
. The eveness of the first quar
ter had disappeared. V: P. I.'s
line began to feel the effect of
the persistent battering by the
veteran Tar Heel offense. The
famed Notre Dame off tackle
play opened wide holes in the
opposing line for the Tar Heel
backs. Underneath it all was
the sting of the loss to Georgia
last week, spurring the team to
a display of strength seldom
seen on Kenan field. The sparse
crowd began to perk up. Here
was big time football.
A series of line bucks and
timely passes completed the rout
of the Gobbler eleven. The sec
ond touchdown followed a pass
for twenty yards to the three
yard line. Spaulding bucked
through .the line for the neces
sary yards.
At this point Coach Collins
substituted an entirely new
team. Still dazed by the force
of the Carolina attack, the Vir
ginia eleven allowed two more
touchdowns to cross their goal
line via the long pass route. A
forty yard pass, Ward to Brown,
accounted for the third marker
of the quarter. Following a
