Judge Moffitt Instructs His
Daughter Not to Attend
I Special to The Times-Disp?tch. I
Ronnukci Va.. February ^7. ? A Storni
oi disapproval is gathering at Kbanokc
College, cause?! by tho use in the. his?
tory class by Professor ?. J. Thor
Menburg ?is a text book of a "History
of the ("nlte<i .states of America" by
it. W. Klson.
Colonel W. II. Terrlll, of Salem, baa
a nephew attending the college, and
ho accidentally had his attention call
ed to some ot the contents of tho his?
tory which Iii? nephew was studying
Colonel Terrill showed the book to
neighbors and friends, and was high?
ly indignant,
W. Hi Tlnsley, of Salem, Informed
a Rouuoke newspaper of the condition,
and It is said that he has written to
ptlier newspapers. The matter will be
taken up by William Watts Camp of
Confederate Veterans in this city.
.Many extremely objectionable fea?
tures to all Southern people are pointy]
ed out, ami these are regarded as ab?
solutely hi conflict with the facts of
history, and likely to give Southern
students perverted ideas of their own
section and ancestry, and of the Con?
federate cause, in the armies of which
practically all of them bad relatives
The history deals with the Johr
Brown raid, and with the war. which
it attributes to slavery. The historlar
further besmirches the name of Robert
E. Lee in tho discussion of the dos?
Of the war.
It has been learned that Judge W
W. Moffitt, ot Salem, in December
learned of the teaching of the his?
Judgo IJIncussed Matter.
Judge Moffitt directed the attention
of President Morehead to some of the
objectionable features. Tho judge was
i-ret t ed to Professor Thorstenburg,
and wrote to him. The correspond?
ence seems to have been unsatis?
factory to him. He, however. oc?
cupied the dual relation of a trustee
of the ?-.-dletr.- and a patron, having
a daughter in attendance there, and
she was a member of the history class
Ho was very anxious, as a trustee, to
avoid Injury to the college, and as a
judge and a patron to show the most
absolute respect to tho collego dls- |
cipllne and laws. At the same time
li> resented Intensely the thought of |
having his own daughter taught what
he regarded as abominable and slan?
derous falsehood against her own peo?
ple. State and country. He said .to?
day that he preferred not giving out
the correspondence with Professor
Thorstehburgi and was reluctant to
discuss the publication. It Is known,
however, that a? a final resort, having
been unable to secure any redress ot
satisfactory answer, either from Presi?
dent Morehead or the orofessor of his
tory, he reluctantly Instructed his
daughter to refrain from attending th?j
history class. Thir, may bring about
a decisive issue.
It is understood that under the col?
lege rules a student refusinc to attend
classes is subject to expulsion. Should
this action be taken In the case of
Miss Moffitt; it is safe to say that her
father will make a very distinct Issue.

How Many Women
Destroy Their Hair?
(From the London Saturday Review.)
One of the best: known hairdressers in
London?much patronized by royalty?
has the following to say: "Frequent wash?
ing of the head with soap and water or
prepared shampoos makes the hair brittle
and causes it to lose its color and split at
the ends.
"Any person desiring abundant, lus?
trous hair should use a dry shampoo frc
quentlj'. Mix 4 ounces of orris root with
4 ounces of thcrox. Sprinkle a table
spoonful of this mixture evenly upon the
head; then brush the powder thoroughly
through the hair.
"Thcrox and orris root keep the hair
light and fluffy, and beautifully lustrous
it heightens but does not change the natu?
ral color of the hair. Therox is the only
thing I know that will produce a growth
of hair."

A matter of much importance to the
league Is the question of a uniform
contract for the players. It is under?
stood that sex-eral of the managers are
requiting their players to sign up con?
tracts. Such action is undoubtedly de?
sirable, and It. Is thought that inas?
much as some of tho players were
compelled to sign such a contract, It
might be well to adopt a uniform con- !
