SPORTSMANSHIP
IS SUBJECT OF
CHAPEL SPEECH
Dean Bradshaw Tells Freshmen
That Sportsmanship Should
Be Part Of ManVPhnbsophy.
In a short talk during chapel
Dean F. F. Bradshaw described
the principles of sportsmanship
as the central Idea underlying
university ;life. "This idea is a
product of .western civilization,"
: Dean Bradshaw .'said, Ir-fand; it
v should be , an Essential o part of
: every 1 man's philosophy;" :
Dean Bradshaw illustrated his
'feinar-s'mtH'refraces to Field
Marshal Haig, well-known figure
of the late war. Whenever pos
sible Haig cast his lot with that
of the private soldier, and never
at any time used the. power of
his office to benefit himself. Dean
Bradshaw spoke of this as the
highest and most preferable
type of sportsmanship. He said
that a man following this idea
asks nothing for himself but is
anxious to carry his part of the
common load.
The dean showed how these
principles applied to student life
by explaining their connection
to conduct, the administration
of student offices, the attitude of
players in athletic contests, etc.
Dean Bradshaw pointed to a
new field for the practice of
sportsmanlike conduct by direct
ing attention to Carolina-Duke
rivalry. He urged friendly
rivalry tempered with mutual
respect. . '.:
Preceding Dean Bradshaw's
talk Rev. C. E. Rozelle conduct
ed a short devotional exercise.
Dr. Abernethy, the University
physician, was to have been pre
sented to the freshmen yester
day, but he was unexpectedly
prevented from coming. He will
speak in chapel this morning.

-o-
Bertrand Russell, famous as
a philosopher, publicist and es
sayist, spoke to an appreciative
audience in Swain hall last night
as a feature of the student enr
tertainmerit program-': His sub
ject, "Need Moderns Be Cyn

to an audience composed largely
of: college students. ' - V
Speaking V in extraordinarily,!
clear terms and for the period
of but one hour! Mr. Russell "de
bunked' the ; usefulness" of the
"olI ideals" ' surrounding God,
patriotism, Truth and; LiDerty,
and set up in their place as gen

the young generation may . ad

risy intellectual honesty, hap

Persons who have been long
attached to the University in
various capacities were unani
mous in their opinion that no
speaker, in recent years at least,
has been given as enthusiastic
a reception as that accorded Mr.
Russell.
Mr. Russell is an, experienced
lecturer, having lectured exten

John B. Sale, author of "The
Tree Named John," a book of
negro folk lore, which, although
only recently published by the
University Press, has already
attained wide popularity, capti
vated several Chapel Hill audi
ences Monday with readings
from his book.
Mr. Sale is from Columbus,
Miss. At present he is making
a tour of educational centers in
the south. ;
Monday morning he appeared
before children of the Chapel
Hill schools and before Univer
sity English classes. Monday
night he appeared before mem
bers of the Chapel . Hill Commun
ity club and "their guests.
Mr. Sale read several selec
tions from his book. The . first
sketch, entitled "Learning to
Swim," told how, Henry, the
hero of "The Tree Named John,"
convinced his pal, John, that he
could never learn to swim unless
he swallowed' a fish bladder
the larger the bladder the better
the swimmer. , . ' ,
" The second selection pictured
vivi dly -how the plantation chil
dren conducted the funeral of a
disreputable .rooster.. . Henry
and John again played the lead
ing roles. . Henry, always the
master of ceremony, directed the
mourners, the songs, and
preached the funeral, declaring
that the rooster had to be
"preached down to hell because
nobody had never heard him re
pent foV his sins." Mr. , Sale's
mimicking of the negro boy's
preaching and praying demon

Playmakers To Pay In Cash
Before Renting Them A Bus
(By Milt Wood)
Carolina's redoubtable Play
makers are back home from ah
eventful 3,000-mile pilgrimage
in the North, which for sheer
thrills was equal to the dramatic
climaxes of the folk plays they
gave to audiences, and which
for hardships was almost on a
par with those of colonial
pioneers. ?
A ' bef ore-dawn crash on
Thanksgiving morning between
their bus and an automobile
driven at terrific speed by two
allegedly 'drunken men in New
York City ; one 60-hour; stretch
of bus riding in which they did
not change their ; clothing or
even so much as brush their
teeth ; and some dangerous deal
ings with a New York City gang
land boss for another bus after
theirs had been wrecked in the
accident these are only a few
of a chain of exciting incidents
of their roadside adventures.
But the ' show went on as
shows must go. on in spite of
accidents, racketeers, cyclones
or what not. The Carolina
Playmakers made every one of
their appointments, and in addi
tion added One bill to their ori

Lectures To
Gerrard Ma
Dr. W. W. Alexander, of Atlanta,
To Deliver., Lectures Friday,
Saturday, and Sunday.
Dr. W. W. Alexander of At
lanta is to deliver the annual
Weil Jectures in Gerrard hall
Friday, Saturday andtSunday of
this week at 8 :30 p. m. The
subject of the' series of lectures'
is ''What Is the South?" -
Dr,; Alexander k an authority
on the. subject of racial relation
ships and should t bring '- some
very timely messages to the XJni
versity-Jpn southern problems.
He is well known to many . here
and those who attended the Blue
Ridge conference, in' 1928 will
remember some of his talks;
In speaking of the coming lec
tures Dr: Howard W. Odum, of
the Weil lecture committee, says :
"This r is a subject in which a
good many students ' are inter
ested, and, of course, a good
many of the professors ae dis
cussing the subject. There is,
too, a general revival of interest
in old things of the south, and
especially at this time because
of a critical attitude of the North
towards the South, particularly
as related to the industrial situa
tion and theDe Priest reactions.
Dr. Alexander has given a good
deal of thought to values, and
I imagine a - good many of his
questions will be new to many
of his hearers."
The subjects of the lectures
are : Friday, "Truth" and Fiction
About the, Old South"; Satur
day, The New Rulers," and Sun
day, "The Older Values in the
New Life." .
The Weil lectures are an an
nual event and were founded by
Henry Weil of Goldsboro in hon

and equally famous producers,

But to tell the details of some
of their roadside adventures, as

The automobile crash came

morning at 110th street, Goth
am. The setting was perfect
for an accident and their veteran
driver, ; Frank Daniel was even
more careful than usual. He ap
proached the intersection at five
miles per hour.. It was raining
and one of New .York's typical
fogs choked the upper air. As
the Playmakers' bus started
across the intersection, a careen
ing sedan approached their flank
at a maddening pace. . Daniel
turned the bus to prevent a
broadside blow. The crash was
sufficient to knock the big bus
across the street and at one time'
it tilted precariously on two
wheels but did not turn over.
The two men in the sedan
when extricate from their de
molished car were hurried to a
hospital! A bottle of whiskey
was found on them. The Chapel
Hill troupe members were only
slightly bruised and cut by fly
ing glass. "H The "bus; however,
was damaged beyond repair ": '
