A meeting of the shareholders
in the Athletic Grounds Improve
ment Association was neia in
Dr. Manning's lecture-room on
Thursday, March 16. Fourteen
of the twenty-five shares were
represented in person or by proxy.
Dr. Manning presided at the
meeting. The Association was
duly organized with Dr. Venable
as secretary, and Messrs. Venable,
Gore and Williams as the execu
tive committee. Bursar, W. T.
Patterson, was requested to act as
treasurer. It was directed that
certificates ; of stock be issued as
soon as . possible! and the fence
and other improvements be
pushed rapidly to completion.
REPAIRS OF THE BUILD-
The Executive Committee of
the Board of Trustees has author
ized a committee consisting: of
Coh Thos. S. Kenan, President
Winston and Dr. F. P. Venable,
to proceed with the repairs of the
buildings. Col. Kenan came
from Raleigh last Thursday and
the committee spent Friday in
iriaking a tour of inspection in
company with Mr. W. S. Utley
of Raleigh, the carpenter who
supervised the repairs of the South
Building., It was resolved to put
the Old East and Old West in
the same repair as the South, re
placing the floors, doors, mantels,
windows, ceilings, &c, &c. This
will be a great improvement to
the University. The committee
also decided to have work done
on the roofs, and 'contracts will
be made after receiving bids.'
The library will be provided with
facilities for shelving the 7000 or
8000 books now piled on the floor
and in the gallery.
Another committee has been ap
pointed to push to immediate
completion the w a t e r-w or k s,
baths, closets &c, of which more
will be said in our next issue.
An effort was made by the
Young Men's Christian Associa
tion assisted by the pastors , and
members of the factiltv to pet Mr.
Moody to visit us during h;s stay
in JN orth Carolina. The evan
gelist replied to his great regret
he would not be able to be with
THE 'VARSITY SWEATER.
, The style of sweater decided
upon by the President of the U.
A. A. with the managers and
captains is quite attractive, we
think. It is a navy blue heavy
wool sweater, front lace - with
white silk cord, with broad sailor
collar with three half inch stripes
of white as a border. The sleeves
and bottom of the skirt have simi
lar border On the breast will be
the monogram "N. C. " in white.
The garments are quite hand
some, and it will be quite an
honor and distinction to wear one.
They are not to be worn all the
time, but if, after a man has
earned his place on the ' Varsity,
he chooses to purchase the
sweater, he may, and then, of
course, no restrictions can be laid
upon him. We do not think
that men ought to be allowed to
wear the foot-ball and base-ball
shoes,? icaps, or sweaters, on all
occasions. They are bought for
certain purposes' and it is no little
expense to the Association. We
hope our managers will use their
endeavors to prevent this abuse
of Association property, as was
so very noticeable last spring.

The Yale law team has organiz
