peril out of which any explorer es-
caped alive.
Sir Douglas will supplement his lec-
ture with six reels of moving pictures
taken by Frank Hurley, photographer
of the expedition, showing animal,
bird, and deep-sea life as well as
views of the mountainous seas and
towering icebergs which they en-
countered. A perfect picture was se-

In describing the 1,000 mile sledge

X. Mertz and Lieut. B. F. Ninnis, Sir
b~ouglas shows a picture of the cre-

cold. After a few days Dr. Mertz suc-
ccumbed from cold and hunger and
Sir Douglas resumed his journey
alone. Three weeks later he fortun-
ately discovered a cache of provisions
which enabled him to reach his win-
ter quarters on the coast. On his
arrival at the base camp he saw the
Aurora, the ship of the expedition, on
the horizon homeward bound, and he
was compelled to remain in the An-
tarctic another year.
"My escape," says Sir Douglas, "was
almost mifaculous. I was in the last
stages of starvatoin when I discover-
ed a food cache left by a searching
party. It was 30 days after the death
of my last companion before I reached
the hut of the expedition on the coast,
and traveling was for the most part
in falling and drifting snow.
Expedition Was Successful j
"The expedition, however, was most
successful, having completed our
knowledge of the Antarctic regions
and it operated in the great unknown
expanse to the west of the much-fre-
quented Ross-Sea area."
As a lecturer he is well worth hear-
ing and his fascinating story is un-
forgettably impressive, in the opinions
of Dean Alfred H. Lloyd and Prof.
Jesse S. Reeves. "His story of the
expedition as related in his two vol-
umes, "The Home of the Blizzard,"
and as told in his lecture is thehmost
thrilling story of adventure that I
know," Professor Hobbs stated.
Sir Douglas was born in Bradford,
Yorks, and received his education at
Sydney university. He is now Pro-
fessor of Geology at the University of
Southern Australia, Adelaide. He fol-
lowed his first experience in explora-
tion among the cannibals of the New
Hebrides islands by accompanying Sir
Ernest Shackelton on his expedition
in 1909 in the capacity of phisicist and
minerologist. le was one of the few
who succeeded in reaching the sum-
mit of Mount Erebus and in re-locat-
ing the South Magnetic Pole.

Higher Body Quashes Case By Rever.
sal Of Judgment, But Supports
Evolution Law
(By Associated Press)
NASHVILLE, Jan. 15.-Tennessee
supreme court today proclaimed the
'fundamental soundness of the state's
famous law against teaching the the-
ory of evolution in state supported
{ schools. At the same time, it reversed
the verdict of "guilty" against Prof.
John T. Scopes, whose case was on
appeal, and then barred the course to
the United States supreme court by
recommending that the case be nolle
prosse instead of retrial.
Without a dissenting vote the court
recommended to L. D. Smith, state at-
torney-general, that the "peace and
dignity" of the state would best be
served by a nolle prosse, thus ending
I what the court termed "this bizarre
case" once and for all.
Mr. Smith announced he would fol-
low the recommendation and not seek
1 a retrial.
The opinion declaring the law con-
stitutional was delivered by Chief
Justice Green and concurred in by two
other justices, but Justice McKinney
dissented on the ground that the act's

The conviction of Professor Scopes,
who was a science teacher, was re-
versed because Judge John T. Rauls-
ton, presiding, fined him $100, when
the jury failed to fix a fine. The high
court held that only a jury may fix
a fine of more than $50 under Ten-
nessee law.
While obviously disappointed over
the action of the court, counsel for the
'Scopes defense pointed to certain fea-
tures as indicating a partial victory
for the opponents of the law.
Two Week Period Of
Early Classification
Proves Satisfactory
Classifications for the second term
in the literary college were virtually
complete yesterday when the Record-
er's office closed following the two
I week period. More than 90 per cent
of the literary students have classified
l during the two weeks, those remain-
ing who have not done so will have
to wait until the second week of the
final examinations. Any changes in
the schedules of those who have al-
ready classified can be made only on
Friday and Saturday, Feb. 17 and 18,
the first week of the second semester.
Students transferring from other
universities and colleges or entering
the University from secondary schools
will register and classify at the Re-
corder's office during the second week
of the final examinations. Officials
were well satisfied yesterday at the
close of the classificatio period upon I
the general success of the present
plan whereby the procedure, with the
exception of unavoidable changes, is
taken care of previous to and does
not interfere with the first term final
examinations. The present plan will

Griffin Hits French
Policy Of Excluding

France is planning to exclude
American automobiles in an endeavor

policy will be unwise but not unna-

ministration, commenting yesterday
on a recent news article concerning
French fear of the invasion of Amer-
ican cars. "The United States has no
right to criticize the French attitude
for it.is comparable to the American
policy of a high protective tariff to
exclude foreign products."
The American automobile industry
has invested more than $5,000 per
