sources and plans of the library

the research being carried on atof life' he concluded.
North Carolina and Duke so as
to establish relations that may
later be of mutual advantage.
"The field of research at the
library," says Mr, Farrand, "the
development of civilization in
England and America is really
as broad as the world, and in
cludes every discipline or sub
ject in the University. We are,
however, leaving the sciences out
of account as the California In

Two Corrections
Upon the complaint of Mr.
Robert G. Dawes, special
dramatic reviewer, whose
criticism of 'Thorns and Or
ange Blossoms" appeared in
the Tar Heel yesterday morn-,
ingj the Tar Heel wishes to
state that the following phrase
in Mr. Dawes' contribution
"Messrs. MacMillan, McKie,
and Olsen did themselves ex
ceeding proud" was omitted.
The proprietor of the Cam
pus Confectionery, Mr. Jeff
Thomas, complains that the
statement in yesterday's Tar
Heel that, "For a while the
building was rented by a
Greek cafe and cafeteria com
bined, but on account of busi
ness troubles, it soon closed
its doors" is a misstatement.
He says that his place of busi
ness did not go bankrupt as
, the Tar Heel statement im
plied, but that it had been sold
to a Mr. Bowden who went
bankrupt.
BROGDEN SPEAKS
TOSiCLA
Emphasizes Honest Day's Work;
Class Votes Gift to
University. .
An address by Justice W. J.
Brogden of the North Carolina
supreme court, who stressed the
importance of "an honest day's
work," featured the farewell
smoker of the University senior
class in Swain hall here Mon
day night.
Giving expression to his fond
ness for Biblical illustrations,
Justice Brogden, an alumnus of
the University, meted out ad
vice and experience to the Caro
lina seniors "as an older broth
er to one who is younger."
"Fifty years ago," he stated,
"all lecturers and commence
ment speakers talked about cul
ture and its fineness. When it
found that such teaching did not
fit, they began talking about
leadership. But this was a phil
osophy of self-interest.
"Twenty-five years ago," he
continued, "they began talking
about service, and we had more
service than we could do any
thing with. 4 Then came the
time when utility was the, word.
One should go to college because
it paid. But this was still a
philosophy of self-interest and
did not add to the zest, enthusi
asm and pleasure of life."
"Today," Justice Brogden
stated, "it's not breadth of
learning, depth of thought, or
utility" that make for the greatr
est social harmony and happi
ness, but "the ability to do an
honest day's work."
For after all, "it's doing the
hard, irksome, routine tasks well
that adds to the glory and charm
t W .r - ,
The speaker was introduced
by Ralph C. Greene, president
of the senior class. .
At the business session that
followed the address, the class
voted to place as a permanent
gift to the University a bronze
fountain, bearing the name and
date of the class, at the head of
the stairs,, leading to the main
reading room in the new library
at a-costof .$300.
In addition, it was voted that

GRAHAM SPEAKS
TOPREAWYEl
Gives Interesting View
Parker Decision.
On
----- - - .- - - . -
Speaking to a small but ap
preciatiye group of pre-law stu
dents Monday night in the law
building, Professor Frank Gra
ham outlined the steps in the
coming of the industrial revolu
tion to North Carolina, and the
part of the lawyer in dealing
with problems resulting there
from. He showed the need for
study of the industrial revolu
tion in its relation to law and
legal developments. Designat
ing this change as the latest
chapter . in the march of power
engines around the world, the
j speaker traced its rise, value and
consequences, and resulting need
for adjustments. Referring to
the experiences of England and
New England, he brought out
the advantages of profiting by
a study and avoidance, as far as
possible, of difficulties encoun
tered them. The way of ad
justment 'is. law making and ju
dicial interpretation in the light
of changing conditions.
In an interesting . aside, dis-
cussion, Mr. uranam gave ms
opinion that Judge Parker was
merely bound by the decisions
of the supreme court in the Red
Jacket case, and that he did not,
in all probability, agree entirely
with the common law principle
involved.

Last. Wednesday evening the
club gave a concert in the Italian
garden of the beautiful and ex
clusive Mayflower hotel in
Washington, D. C, and the ap
pearance was a marked success
musically. It was highly com
mended by an audience regret-
ably small.
The following is quoted from
the Washington Evening Star :
"The Glee Club of the Univer
sity of North Carolina lived up
to its reputation in the program
presented last night before an
enthusiastic audience. The di
rector deserves high commenda
tion for his training of the group
in fine phrasing, excellent pian-
clear enunciation." Similar
comments have appeared in ev
ery place where the club sang.
The same program which was
used on the recent trip will be
giyen here for the enjoyment of
those who like good music well
rendered.. A feature of the pror
gram : will be a group of songs

HOODED FIGURES
STALK IN AISLES
SEARCHING MEN
Banquet for Neophytes of Order
Is Held At Carolina
Inn.
The Order of the Golden
Fleece tapped nine Carolina men -at
an impressive ceremony held
in the Methodist church last
night. Preceding the tapping
there, was an introductory speech
by Professor Horace Williams,
an old Fleece member, and an
address by President Chase, an
honorary member of the Order.
I Gordon Gray, Jason of the or
ganization, introduced Profes
sor Williams as . an old Fleece
man and one who has been al
ways closely connected with the
Order and its ideals. Dr. Wil
liams spoke briefly on how lead
ers in history had the character
and courage to live up to their
ideals. "The Fleece never tap
ped a man who was lacking in
character,'! said Professor Wil
liams. "Galelio, Darwin, and
Washington 'if were leaders in
their respective fields. The
Fleece taps those who show the
unique qualities of leadership." '
Professor Williams then in
troduced Dr. Chase," who made
a few introductory remarks on
the Fleece tapping as a distinc
tive event of the University
year. This was followed by an
address on "Leadership in the
State and South of Tomorrow."
The speaker recalled the first
time that he came to the Uni
versity campus twenty years
ago as a young man out to work
for the first time in the South.
He found Carolina a unique sort
of school . rather shut off from
the rest of the world. Durham
was a two hour drive ,by buggy
in those days. Lights were
out at midnight, and main street
Was very dusty in summer and
muddy in winter.
"There are two schools of
thought and ideas opposing each
other in the South," he asserted,
"one that the South , will always
be sectional, and the other , that
it is just as much divided and
varied as any other part of the
country. There is no such thing
as the Solid South any longer.
Modern methods of industries
and transportation are forming
a connecting link between the
South and the rest of the nation.
Southern states are as widely
diversified as any other states.
The old tendency of the South
living in self -contentment has
been replaced by a heritage of
independence and, progress." . .
He closed saying;. "This Uni
versity stands, for men of power
and ability regardless of affilia
tions." ... ' . v(j
Following this two hooded
figures stalked the aisles of the
church tapping nine men in, the
following order i Ed Hamer, Joe
Eagles, "Puny"; Harper, Clyde
Dunn, Pat Patterson, Noah
Goodridge, ; Marion Alexander,
Archie, Allen and Will Yarhor
ough. Immediately .followjng the
ceremonies, a . banquet honoring
the new Fleece men was held at
the Carolina Inn.
