In stantly he was swallowed up in fight. The sophomores piled upon his back, hung to his legs, grabbed at his flying arms. It was no use.

Man after man went down. He shook them from his shoulders, threw them aside with his arms, stepped over their prostrato bodies. Never was there such a fight The mild eyes of the senior blazed, protruding from his head, his mouth worked, his face went white and red; with dishevelled hair and head down, he bored his way through the crush, his fists flying like trip-hammers, straight to the effigy of himself. There the sophomores made their last stand. Into them like, a cyclone came the senior.

His great hands grabbed them, threw them aside, his arms void' ed their blows, his mighty chest heaved and writhed as it breasted its vray against the human flood. Finally he threw himself upon the effigy, wrenched it away, walked to the tree whereon it had boen intended to hang the image. Around him danced the sophomores in a cautious ring. "Father Anchlses" threw the image to the ground below the tree and put his foot upon it. He threw off his coat, he tore away his shirt.

Red faced, the big muscles on his arms and chest rising and falling, his great shoulders thrown back and his long fingers twitching in the palms, he turned and faced his enemies. He dared them to come on. He swung his arms and invited them to his embrace. He menaced them with his fists. Some few came on.

WAS A MIGHTY FIGHT How Future Judge Whipped Whole Sophomore Class for Seeking to Hang Him in Effigy and Forgot Life-Time Habit to "Cuss Them Blue." The friends of Judge George W.

Ward are recalling theae days with mingled admiration and amusement an Incident of his college career at Wake Forest Irf! under provocation, he exhibited a rage which tore him like a whirlwind splits a cloud, and likewise carried before it with the same ease and Intensity all the human timber tkat wus unfortunate enough to get in its path. To this day that unwritten hlsory of big events which is the scroll which a student must learn before he becomes a sophomore, contains at Wake Forest no more dramatic a tale than the anger of George W. Ward and the record that he made as a man full of 'big fight." The story of the day of his indignation and the record his achievements Is to the college tradl-tlons like the doings of an AJax or the mighty cuttings of Hector and Achillea when they came together on the Trojan plains. Indeed, there is something epic about the tight of Senior Ward with the sophomore class and the truth Is very much In sober earnest of a sort slmfriar to those fabled encounters of the ancient heroes with serried ranks of enemies, or- the valiant Cyrano master of a hundred footpads! Reading of the assault upon the Judge by Mose McCown, of Durham, all those who knew him in his student days reflected on his quiet demeanor with amazement Had the report been that McCown had struck the Judge and that George W. Ward had turned and demolished his assailant, these old friends would have smiled remlnlsceartly and said they "could hav? told' you so." As it was.

they tell the story to the increase of their wonder: and in the telling two things come to the surface of thought convincingly: That Judge Ward is very much a man as is reckoned of one who is not afraid to strike and able to play havoc when he turns loose: that, too. he knows that he is a Judge to a degree which enables him to fall upon a restraint which, considering his nature. Is almost uncanny In Its conscientiousness. When, with the blow of McOown stinging his ear. the Judge turned quietly without a word and walked away, did a vision come before his eyes of his student days when, a figure biasing with life and his temples throbbing with enort, he fought his way into college history against odds of fifty to one? How the nails must have dug Into the palms of the hand remembering that he was no longer George W.

the Court! No wonder his friends gasped when they read the Issue of the assault! But to get to the college stdry. Tlie Hero or the Collejre. George W. Ward came to college late In life. He had been out in the world at Work.

He had performed humble tasks, had labored with his hands that he might win the money for his ambition. He came to college poorly prepared, untrained to study, leaning only on a dogged will. Poor and ill-! equipped, work that others did easily he at first accomplished with an agony that he himself has now perhaps forgotten. Slowly, yet with a thoroughness that other students did not know, he sucked the college dry, what it had to teach, the ideals It espoused, the dignity that hung about it as an institution. All these things the future Judge absorbed till they were a part of himself.

When his senior year arrived his greater age. his studious habits, the gentle gravity of his voice, combined with his immense physique to set him in a class apart from the body of the students. They admired and loved him. He was the high pattern of the college. Jesting, the stu dents followed him, listened to his words.

"Father Anchlses" they called him for the virtue of his walk and the finality of' his opinions. "George Washington" they dubbed him for the quality of his patriotism and the value of his word. Respected and beloved. Senior Ward moved about the small circle of the college world having things much his own way and confident that his way was right. No man was purer of speech, more gentle of manner, slower to anger.

A psychologist might 1 have detected the volcano under ihe quiet of his breast: to the college, the revelation was, staggering. One Spring there was an election in the literary society and. controlling politics as It suited him to do for the good of the college as he saw It, Senior Ward was instrumental in securing the election to a college honor of a student to a certain faction, seemed un fitted to the post To this cause th.v sophomore class attributed their rest lessness which was squirming for re volt. They commenced to abuse the Senior Ward, they called him nams that went from one end of the campus to another, they adopted nagged in the hope of getting a rise from the calm and studious man. ThroOgh all this Judge Ward went an unruffled way, showing no sign.

Finally, the sophomores determined to hang, him in effigy. So simple was the plan that they announced It previously, even selecting the tree. And then 4hey got the rise they had tried for. Perhaps it was the final straw to restraint, perhaps there was some peculiar thing about an effigy which stung the Judge In unknown way. At any rate he made announcement: that was an outrage which he would not permit The sophomores.

In high glee, went on merrily with their preparations. Outside the building, awaiting them, stood Senior Ward. The sophomores marked him as he stood and Presently they came down, fifty of them.

Evidence Contradlctorv to Massev. It Is stated Sn good authority that when the cWj called for trial, the accused attendants will be able to produce an eye witness to the.whole transaction who- will contradict In toto the evidence of Massey as to licks stricken with the" slat which Nail wrenched from the bench Just before his flight. They expect to prove by this witness- that the Insane man fought desperately, and that It took the- combined efforts of the four men to overpower yi him, and that Nail threw and severely beat Durham. In particular, before the others succeeded In overpowering him. As to the cut on the head.

It Is understood that the attendants will testify that they do not know how he came" by it unless he was injured In some way in getting through the barbed wire fence or Incidentally to the struggle which attended his capture.

I It will be remembered that the former testified that in his opinion "death was caused by a combination of circumstances, the- exertion of running and struggling with the guarcs the blows on the head and the high degree of ex 2itement to wnicn ne Jected. In giving this Jordan explained that liad been sub- testimony. Dr. he occupied a position radically different from pther physicians examined by reason of having had all the testimony as to the entire matter brought before him, of having seen the body! and of beln- thoroughly familiar witn an the cir cumstanees' attending the death of Nail. While not saying that he would not have treated the case in a way similar to that followed by Dr.

It was what he had heard and seen of all the facts surrounding the case, which led him tow the opinion that no one circumstance could be held ti be entirely responsible for the death of the patient. 1 I It Is hardly deemed likely that at the next term of coyrt the grand Jury will" return a true bill for homicide against the four attendants Involved.
