UNIVERSITY OF, NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, FEBRUARY 16, 1894.
A GENEROUS GIFT FROM
C. G. WRIGHT.
The manager of the base-ball
team has received a check for $25
from Clem. G. W right of Greens
boro, one of our prominent young
alumni. He has been instructed
to draw on Mr. Wright for $25
more in March. This generous
contribution of $50 puts the man
agement in heart again. Prac
ticing the most rigid economy
this season promises to be an ex-
pensive one and a critical one in
! the history of athletics at U. N. C.
We have the, finest material for
a team that we ever had and the
,best list of dates for games. . The
season should be a . brilliant and
successful one, but we can do
nothing unless properly supported
at home. We must have a trainer
and balls and bats v and gloves.
Mr. Wright's example ought to
inspire some of our other alumni,
old or young to come to our aid.
Similar contributions from a few
of the University's friends would
put us beyond the fear of failure.
It shows but little love for the
Alma Mater and pride in holding
high the White and Blue to refuse
aid and then to find fault and jeer
and scoff because, unaided and
unsupported, the Varsity's teams
have been unable to wrest victory
from stronger colleges.
Let students, faculty and alum
ni all come forward now and put
the team on the best possible
footing for the sharp contest be

THE GLEE ClUB.
The Glee Club left the Hill on
Monday the 5th and returned on
Friday the 9th, visiting on their
annual winter trip the cities of
Greensboro, Salisbury, Charlotte
and, Winston. The trip was on
the. whole a most enjoyable, one.
It was unfortunate that the time
selected should have been in Lent
and that in each of the cities vis
ited there had been several enter
tainments on the nights previous;
so the club did not have the pleas-.
ure of singing to full houses and
we. notice that the greater part of
them. walked from the station to
Another unfortunate thing in
its coming in Lent was the lack
of the receptions that are usually
given, although some of the fel
lows had a very yleasant time at
a germ an in Salisbury given . to
the club, led by Mr. McKenzie
and Miss Noble, of Philadelphia.
The concerts given were very
much superior to the one given
here. There wras more blending
and working together and no one
seemed to forget his words.
Every one seemed to enjoy .the
warbling of Mangum, and Lind
say's acrobatic feat always won
great applause. But "Mac" gain
ed the greatest praise, being en
cored many times wherever he I
sang. He had added "The
Laughing Song" to the number
given at Chapel Hill, which al
ways took well.
Prof. Harrington went with the
club and after one or two of the
songs in . Salisbury, where the
club began to do its best work,
he was almost unable to contain
himself and was found dancing
up and down behind the scenery.
He says that he thinks this club
gave better concerts than any that
have preceded it and reflected
more credit upon the University.
We must not omit the excellent
way the club was managed. Mr.
Patterson showed his great abil
ity for managing a club of , this
kind. Perhaps some selections
from the papers will not be out
of place. -
"The University Glee Club

in the Assembly hall of the Gra

"The Glee Club of the Univer

opera house last night and cap
tured the audience. - The young
men sing well, their voices blend
and harmonize splendidly and
their songs were popular and
catchy. Some of the numbers
were exceedingly funny and kept
the audience in a roar of laugh

him, were delightful . ' Each

THE UNIVERSITY PRESS.
The University is always 'pro
gressive. On last., Monday alter
noon there was a meeting of sub
scribers of stock in this new en
terprise, when initial steps were
taken towards the proper organi
zation of a company for general
and job printing. Committees
were appointed, though no of
ficers elected, to secure a charter,
order presses, type, &c, and ren t
a building. The company is pat
terned after the Columbia College
Press. Within two weeks it is
hoped that all will be in readi
ness for doing all the printing
the University, professors and
students have done.
This new and great advance is
the direct. result of the progress
iveness of some of our energetic
professors, It will indeed supply
a long felt want besides enabling
those having printing done to
have direct supervision over it.
Its good is even more farreaching
than this, as it will furnish occa
sional employment to many poor
students, who can by this method
help earn their support while at
Way it's Done at North Caro-
Dr. Tolman delivered a very
interesting lecture in the Baptist
church last Wednesday night to a
large audience. He spoke of
Corea, that island which has been
so long isolated from the rest of
the world, but which has within
the last few years obtained a great
deal of attention as a missionary
field. It is x of peculiar interest
to see the religious system of this
little island. China and Japan
have both influenced it. Budd
hism is the predominant religion
among Coreans at present, but
Christianity is fast gaining ground.
In his lecture, Dr. Tolman
traced the growth of the religious
system of Corea, illustrating by
reference to other people. There
is in man a natural longing for
something higher than himself,
and a feeling that some external
power is overruling him. From
such primitive aspirations, grows
gradually a system of worship and
religious observances. It is our
duty as Christians to direct aright
this tendency and satisfy the
longings of the soul. The lec
ture was delivered in the speaker's
usual happy style, and all enjoy
