THE GAME WITH V. M. I.
The University was defeated last
Saturday afternoon in two 30-minute
halves by the Virginia; Military
Institute at Lexington, Va. The
game was an interesting one, neith
er side doing much playing.' The
core was 10 to 4 in favor of V. M;
. There was no kicking against
the umpiring or refereeing it was
fair. The V. M. I. men won the
game fairly. Coffeen, of the V. M.
., made both touch-downs, and
Baskerville made the .one for Caro
lina. The boys attribute their de
feat to lack of team work, over-
confidence,, big-head and general
cussedness. Not one man on the
team did his work. They all
played like dummies, and simply
because they had beaten Washing-
ton and Lee so badly the day
ueiure. me v. m. 1. team piayeu
together, as a unit, solidly and
effectively, Carolina played like
a crowd of people going to a pic nic.
Up to the last five minutes of the
game the boys from Carolina were
confident of winning the game. If
the men had played together and
put up the aame that they usually
do with .the "scrubs" the result
would have been different. There
is no excuse' for our defeat, only
we played like a lot of dummies.
The ground was miserably wet and
the long grass on it made it very
difficult for the Carolina boys to
keep on their feet, as the cleats on
their shoes were very thin, and
every time a man would attempt
to run he would in alt probability
fall on his face. One great draw
back was the absence of Snipes
the left guard. If Snipes had been
there rif there had been no long,
green grass if we had not played
like kids we think the game would
have been ours. But, it was not.
The players on V. M. 1. that did
effective work were: Coffeen, half
back, and Biscoe, right guard.
Those on the Carolina team that
did good playing, are not on the
team this year.
The game was witnessed by
about 800 people, and it was urn
piredand refereed in the most im
partial manner by A very, of Trinity,
and Auspach, of Washington and
This organization founded in 1844
is now as full of life as in! the
past, when more students and more
professors interested themselves in
it. To the few who now engage in
its work there is open a delightful
mine of enjoyment; a mine whose
supply like that of the widows
cruse is inex-haustible, It is really
perplexing why so little concern is
manifested by the majority of col
legians tor such opportunities as
are to be found within the sanctums
of our different societies. I his
society has in its possession valu
ables of which two thirds of the
students are entirely ignorant.
Its records, letters, notes and other
manuscripts are continually - being
over loaded and read by writers of
state and national history. Origi
nal work, research and' discovery
goes on among those who care to
con nect themselves with the socie
ty and who afterwthat connection'
exert themselves toward the ac
complishment of some purpose,
whatever it may be, in the exami
nation of facts offered by the arch- '
