OUR PROSPECTS FOR '94.
The most important question
a football man asks himself now
is, what kind of a team will we
have in '94? Our prospects are
not very flattering it is true,
but no doubt old U. N. C. will be
in the fight with a team that
she will be proud of. Of the reg
ular team that played this year
not one will be back. . That good
stiong, valiant old rush line that
has won so many victories for
the University went on the field
for the last time last
Thursday in Richmond. It .was
a noble line and one that bore
the brunt of many a hard fought
conflict, . but they have played
their last game. Kirk pa trick,
Snipes, Murphy, Little Pngh,
Rankin. Mfrritt, Barnard, Bas
ktrvil'c, Kenan. Hickerson, Fur
gerson, Graham, Wheedbee and
Atkinson have played their last
game for the white and blue.
Geo. Stephens, Sharp?. Gui on,
Little, J., Denson, Rogers and
Moore, will be back next year,
and to them we must trust for
the nucleus of a team.
We notice from our exchanges"
the that the boards for the next
years annuals have been elected.
This is true at nearly every in
stitution that gets out an an
nual. Why have no the editors
of the Hellenian been elected?
An amusing thingin the recent
game in Richmond was the fact
that a Virginian was running
the North Carolina team and a
North Carolinian had charge of
the Virginia team.
vVith this issue the Tak Iieel
will be discontinued until after
the Christmas season is passed.
Foot ball for the year is over.
A great deal has been done in
developing new material and in
stilling the spirit of the game in
to different classes and clubs,
and our team has won a reputa
tion which places it second to
Virginia in the South. Should
the game be allowed to remain
with us next year a trainer will
be engaged in time and we shall
not have to go into our most
important contests with only
two weeks coaching. At pres
ent University trustees are seri
ously considering the abolish
ment of inter-collegiate athletics.
As far as we are concerned, while
we know that these gentlemen
aie doing just what they deem
expedient, we fee! that they
should consider the benefits aris
ing from a decently manceuvered
foot ball and demand only some
change in the game as now phiy
ed. In thepast seven years noone
has been injured here, seriously,
in a game ol ball, while five faith
ful knights of thesma' hour lamp
have died from over study. We
can name them, Durinjjr one
terni at Harvard four 'men com
muted suicide in the1 philosophy
departments. Their trouble
caused by ceaseless study and
exeiie.neht due to the discovery
and realization of new and vital
theories. We hear of no one
there losing ids life from manip
ulating the festive pigskin. Ceu-
ter wedge should be removed
from the game and end and tack
le plays substituted, so as to
give less play for brute force,
smashing," "killing," etc. No
more games will be .played on
the Hill this term, but in order
that the boys may have some
recreation during the holidays,

Would it not be a good idea
to have a large lamp suspended
from the walls of the third floor
passage of South Building? The
darkness every night is like un
to Plutonian shades, and there,
is some danger imminent to the
heads of those who come up the
steps beneath the large timbers.
