The Aviation Course
Small Number of Students Enrolled;
Course in Experimental Stage
The course in aero-dynamics
in the University which is given
as an optional to juniors and
seniors in the department of
mechanical engineering now has
two seniors ' and one graduate
student enrolled.' The apparent
reason for the low enrollment
this year is that the course is
just in the experimental stage,
and most of the students had al
ready chosen their courses be
fore aero-dynamics became a
part of the curriculum.
Quite a number of students,
however, have voiced their in
tention of enrolling next year,
and a few have been making use
of the equipment for conducting
experiments of their own. One
freshman completed a model of
the heavy twin-motored ' trans
port planes that flew success
The equipment , at present will
be sufficient for.... instructions
during the next year or two, but
as more progress is made,, more
equipment will be needed. Just
now, the department has one
Vaught ' plane, one Liberty
motor, a single-cylinder motor
for test purposes and three pro
pellors. The object of this course is to
give the students who plan to
go to more specialized schools a
fair" knowledge of the funda
mentals of aviation so that they
will not be handicapped in this
respect. J. S. S.

Dr. Richard J. Noble, brother
of M. C. S. Noble, died at his
home inv Selma , Sunday morn

juries he had received in an au
tomobile accident April 19.
Attended by high officials of
Masonry, leading physicians and
a large gathering of friends and
neighbors, funeral services were
held Monday in Selma, and
burial services in Oakwood cem

Dr. Noble was injured -"on
April 19 when his automobile
overturned on the Raleigh-Selma
highway while answering a pro

Noble insisted that he be taken
to his home in Selma where he
died early Sunday morning.
He served as Grand Master of
Masons in 1889, as Potentate of

Dr. Noble was seventy-seven years
of age, he had practiced medicine for
fifty-five years, he was following a

occurred that resulted in his death. In
the practice of medicine he had built

OF DR. PATTERSON TO
MISS SARAH ROBERTSON
The engagement of Miss
Sarah Robertson to Dr. Howard
Patterson was announced in
New York yesterday by Mr. and
Mrs. Hugh Robertson.
Thus are united two families
who used to dwell in Chapel Hill.
Dr. Patterson's grandfather,
Eben Alexander, was professor
of Greek in the University, and
his father, Drew Patterson, who
died in 1928, was in the faculty
here as professor of physics and
dean of the school of applied
science. Miss Robertson's grand
father, Dr. Thomas Harris, was
the head of the first medical
school connected with the Uni
versity. The mothers of Dr. Patterson
and Miss Robertson grew up in
Chapel Hill together : the Misses
Eleanor Alexander and Mary
Harris. The Alexanders lived
where Spencer hall (the wo
man's building ) now stands. The
Harris home was on Cameron
avenue; it was demolished three
years ago to give place to the
Zeta Psi fraternity house.
After he- was graduated here
and had completed the two-year
medical course, Dr. Patterson
pursued his medical education in
the Harvard school of medicine.
For a while he served as interne
at the Peter Bent Brigham hos
pital in Boston.
I UNIVERSITY MEN
DEBATE BOSTON IN
The University debating team
debated Boston University last
night at Boston. The Tar Heel
debaters upheld the affirmative
side of the question,- "Resolved,
That the nations of the world
should adopt some plan of com
plete disarmament of all forces,
except those which are needed
for police purposes." North
Carolina was represented by J.
M. Bailey, G. P. Carr, John Wil
kinson and J. C. Williams. This
was a return debate with Boston
University as their team was
entertained at Chapel Hill on
April 19. At that time our de
baters supported the identical
side of the same question and
won the debate. The team which
spoke last night also debated
Boston at Chapel Hill. The first
debate was a very hotly con
tested debate and the first that
the Boston forensic artists lost
this year. -
The result last night's debate
cannot be announced as theTar
Heel went to press before it
could learn the decision.

car must have averaged at least
60 miles per hour all through the
race. ' Nevertheless, the two of
ficers did not give up and as the
rum-runner entered the sub
urban section of Durham they
were but a short distance be

under the influence of his own
product, he could not keep his
car under control, and so collid

on the left-hand side of the
street. The two officers arrived
immediately after the accident
and found that one of the rum
runners had made his escape
but that the other had stayed
to look after the automobile.
The wrecked Ford was
searched and four gallons I of
whiskey found. The person
driving the car gave his name as
James Brown. The two officers
took possession of the wrecked
car and put the driver in jail.

GLEE CLUB SINGS
The University glee club will
appear in the Playmaker thea
tre next Thursday night as a
regular part of music week.
The concert will be the first
given this year on the campus
by the glee club with the excep
tion of two chapel appearances
last quarter. Admission will be
50 cents for students and 75
cents for outsiders.
This year the glee club has
functioned entirely without fi
nancial assistance from the Uni
versity. The season tours, al
though very successful, did not
result in sufficient profit to
finance the two big contest J;rips
made recently by the group. An
expense of about $480 was in
volved by the district contest at
Greenville in which the Univer
sity glee club was winner, and
the trip made to New York in
order to participate in the na
tional intercollegiate glee club
contest cost over $600.
. A few small donations have
been received by the club, but

University students as well as

spirit was still to much in evi
dence. The play doesn't need
it ; in fact, it would very likely
be materially benefitted if it
were played "straight," after the
Hoboken manner, and also the
Jitney Players, in "The Murder
in the Red Barn." But this is
a debatable matter, and cannot
be dealt with here.
The indisputable fact remains,
however, that the citizens and
inhabitants of the fair village
of Chapel Hill, owe unmeasur
able gratitude to the producers,
the director, and to all respon
sible for this production, for a!
most enjoyable entertainment.
