There is a college out in Ken
tucky, called the State . College of
Kentucky., This college has pro
fessors, it also has a foot ball team.
The foot ball team plays good ball,
this fact encourages one of the
aforesaid professors by. the name of
Miller to write up .the account of
foot ball, from- its inception in the
blue grass state," and incidental
. ly to refer to the records of other
southern teams. He writes, and
sends his article to the University
Review of NewYork, it is accepted
aud published. Here is what .Mil
ler says in regard to the playing of
his team against the V . M. 1. and of
their great recoru W last year.
"From here . (Balcony Falls, ya,)
on to our destination we heard
nothing but the praises of our an
tagonists, J (The V. M. I.) how
they had visited crushing defeat
upon everything that dared - to
tackle them, Trinity, North Caro
lina, Washington and Lee, &c. Holy
shade of the mother of Moses!
where, oh where did you get your
information, Professor ? The Uni
versity of North Carolina has never
played a game with the Virginia
The Editor of this paper would sug
gest to you, Prof. Miller that when
you attempt to write up foot ball
matters in the future, that you
should confine yourself to the facts
and accounts of your own team;
for by your article in the Review
you demonstrate that when you
get off the main line of a subject
you are liable to make a lapsis
pennce. We will send you a copy
of this paper Prof. Miller, and we
want you to read it and then you
.will know that the University of
N. C. played six games last year
and lost only one and that was to

The University Review, of New
York, has in its last issue an article
on Foot. Ball, in the South, taken
from the Princetonian. The article
is presumably from the pen, or
from data furnished by the vulvar
looking person of unsavory memory
who umpired the game of foot ball
between the University of North
Carolina and University of Virginia
article says: ''The teams that figur
ed ,? most . prominently. last fall
among the Southern: colleges were
the University of Va., Trinity Col
lege and the University of N. 1 C.
The series of games played at At
lanta Ga.. during the week r of
Thanksgiving, resulted in awarding
the championship to the Universi
ty of Virginia. It is true that the
North Carolina team defeated them
in all exhibition games, but as the
regular championship was won by
a score of 30-18, the honor went
to the latter. (A great deal of hon
or, no doubt Virginia looks with
pride to her being the champion.
N. C. never claimed the honor,
and never will; but it does look to
us like the honor they claim has a
hole in it as big as a tub.)
The superiority of the Virginians
was due largely to the personal train
ing and coaching of Spicer, 91, half
back on the Princeton team of 1890.
He was engaged early in the sea
son, and by careful work and coach
ing of the material in the college
presented at Atlanta a better team
than any other college had yet pre
sented." All the above is news to
us except the fact that North Car
olina and Va., were the most promi
nent teams'in the South. As far as
Trinity was concerned they were
beaten by U. Va., 44-6 N. C. 24-0.
v, m. 1. 34-0. 1 hat is a very
beautiful way to figure, prominent
ly. In theft last paragraph quoted
above, mention is made of Mr.
Spicer, who by his skill in coach
ing put Virginia in the field at At
lanta, and there on that fieldwhere
she was defeated by the Universi
ty of N. C. 26-0; demonstrated the
fact that Virginia was the best
team in the south, well! well!!
well!!! the best team in the south,
the best on field in Atlanta. Creat
God and little fishes! We agree
with you it was a great team,
great in weight and suffering a
great defeat. The only thing no
ticed in the shape of great ability
on the part of Virginias team, on
that trip was their great ability to
swallow booze. It was Mr. Spicer's
training that made them play so
lovely and winningly in Atlanta.
Oh my! if that is so Mr.. Spicer,
you are a deuced good trainer. You
must train for the benefit of the op
posing team, you are a daisy Mr.
Spicer, and we hope you will train
Virginia, until the cows come home.
You are a sweet smelling kind of a
tube rose anyhow, Mr. Spicer, and
we would like to have you umpire
just one more game for us. Mr.
Spicer's training made Virginia.

we will now state what made us

no doubt was, the first to put a team
in the field, but I North Carolina
was the first to play the scientific
game of foot ball, for in 1889, the
team was organized and ceached
for some time by Hector Cowan of
Princeton, and in 1890 by Graves.

field in the south last year, no one
can truthfully deny! below will be

The Team is improving consider
ably, and is playing a decidedly
better game of ball than it has for
some time. We are glad to see
that the number of men who are
applying for the team is increasing,
Capt Barnard should put forth eve

We have good material, and the
knowledge that we have such an

The first number of the Univer
sity Magazine for the current year
has made its appearance. With its
new cover which is a work of art,
and the excellent style in which it
is printed, it has a decidedly attrac
tive appearance. The articles in it
are of special interest and would be
a credit to much hrger and better
known Magazines. Prof Collier
Cobb deserves a deal of praise for
his untiring efforts to make the Mag
azine the representative College
Magazine of the South. In our
opinion he has succeeded.
The Banjo Club will be a new
feature in the University. Mana
ger Roberson says the outlook is
encouraging and that this Club
will be strong although this is the
first year. If possible, a trainer will
be secured so as to make the ma
terial more available.
