'VARSITY 22, A. "& M. COLLEGE 0.
The first game of the seas, n took
place on last Thursday between
the 2nd U. N. C. and regular A. &
M. teams. The playing . was
spirited and afforded much enjoy
ment for those witnessing it. The
University boys won by . their
superior end plays and good, well
timed tackles. It must be ad
mitted that the A. & M. team sur
passed their opponents in point of
rushing the centre, but this was
offset by 'Varsity's centre, Sharpe,
who, falling headlong each time,
tangled into a mesh of meshes the cru
ral continuances of the Raleigh men.
Here must also be included Currie,
distinguished not only in the above
rush-stopping, but as a breaker
through and tackier behind lines.
Others who played so as to deserve
special mention are, for 'Varsity ;
Steele, Dockery, Thomas, McKinne.

SELF-GOVERNMENT BY STU
DENTS. We notice that Dartmouth, Cor
nell and Princeton are considering
the matter of student self-government.
Truly, we were unaware
that institutions so famous as they
have been governed of late years
by any other methods. There is
but one way -to secure a healthy
and that is to let the college body
judge, advise and conduct itself.
Barring the matter of pedagogical
duties, the faculty of U. N. C.
have little to do with University
internals. The young men engineer
ail matters pertaining to college
government, and it has proven a
condition far superior to that when
proctors and spy-professors reigned
supreme. If men are men and so
considered by the powers-that-be,
no derogation ; of dignity or honor
will be experienced. We are glad
to notice tnat Sewanee has the same
ideas and that she is working it out
by expelling two men who were
detected in cheatingon examination.
