nn TAR H A A O Vol. II. UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, MARCH 23, 1894. No. 18. BASIC-BALL. U. N. C. 6. DURHAM 3.- The game between the Durham Athletic team and U. N. C. , was a great disappointment to almost all. The weather was very bad and the ground was wet, which jnade difficult work for the pitch ers. At the close of the first inning a very dark cloud swept rapidly over the sky and all ran for shelter as quickly as possible. The playing was not very good. There was not much spirit in it, and there were several very poor plays. Most of these were due for the most part to the bad weather. The game was as follows: j '" First Inning. Robertson makes base hit and steals second; Oldham flies 'out to center and Robertson steals third; Gregory makes a base hit and gets second on a wild throw by Graham, while Robertson scores; Gregory scores on base hit by Lanier, who steals second; Honeycutt strikes out and Lanier steals third; Henderson caught out on fly to first; Van Nop pen hits to Stephens and is put out on first; Andrews flies out to Robertson; Jones gets base on balls; error for Gregory and stolen base for Jones; Morris makes base hit and Wade flies out to Gregory. Score, first inning, 2 o. Second Inning. Kenan strikes out; Stephens makes a base hit and steals second; Stanley flies out to right and Stephens steals third; j Robertson makes first on error of ; the catcher; Stephens scores and jalso Robertson on Oldham's hit jto center fielder, who slipped, giv ing him second, he steals third on a throw to home; Gregory flies to : center fielder, who falls again, and ! Oldham scores; Lanier is caught out on a liner to shortstop; Lyon flies. out to Kenan, Gammon to Stanley, and Flowers strikes out. Score, second inning, 5 o. 1 Third Inning.

Score, third inning, 5 2. Fourth Inning. Stanley makes out on foul fly to catcher; Robertson makes a base hit to center, which is finely stopped, and then steals second; Oldham fouls out to catcher; Robertson then makes the poorest play of the game in trying to steal second when the ball was thrown to the pitcher; Lyons flies out to Stan ley; Gammon strikes out, and Flowers is put out on first by a hit to the pitcher. Score, fourth, in ning. 53 Fifth Inning. Gregory hits to short and out on first; Lanier hits to third and out on first; Honeycutt flies out to first; Lanier gives Johnson base on balls; Van Noppen hits to Lanier, who throws to Gregory, who in turn throws to first in time to get out both men. This double was decided the best play of the game. Andrews makes a base hit, and Jones is put out on first by a hit to Gregory. Score, fifth inning, 53. Sixth Inning. Hendren makes a two-base hit to right and steals third; Bailey strikes' out; Hendren scores on a sacrifice, hit by Graham; Stanley makes a base hit and steals second; Rob ertson flies out to left; Morris makes a fine base hit over third, and Wade makes a base hit to Stanley; Lyons makes base hit; Gammon makes another hit to Lanier, but Morris is put out at home; Jones hits and Wade is put out at home; Lyons scores on wild throw by Lanier, and Flowers strikes out.

Mr. Hubbard, of the "Peace Society," spoke on "Arbitra tion" in the chapel on Friday night. He showed how mind could overcome brute force; giv ing many examples where this had been done. Therefore mind was superior to brute force and it should be used in settling our difficulties instead of war, which he showed to be one of the most terrible of evils. The lecture was both interesting and instructive, and we are very sorry that space will not allow us to say more about it. There are several prizes offered for the best essays on this subject. There will be more about this hereafter. KING HENRY IV. PART I. N A large crowd, composed of students and town people, turned out last Monday evening to hear Mr. Hannibal A. Williams, the Shakspearean reader, render King Henry IV (Part I). The speaker was introduced in a few graceful words by Dr. Hume, who reminded us that our daily life is so full of ills, of examina tions and professors that it is well, occasionally, to turn aside and enjoy an evening in the company of the great master, Shakspeare. Mr. Williams then proceeded to give a short analysis of the play, showing the relation of the King to the House of Percy and the place of these in history, also the relation of Prince Hal with Fal stafF, and the place of each in the story. The King is a dextrous flatterer and .full of all cunning, but of a noble mind and high powers, and is the chief force of the play. By a graceful transi tion the speaker passed to the first scene. His manner is easy and quiet on the floor, not burdened with gestures. He represents to the life different characters, but does it all by the power of a won derfully flexible voice. He had no aid of stage scenery or costume, but spoke in simple full dress, yet succeeded in bringing out vividly the characters of the play, perhaps more vividly because there was no stage accompaniment to distract ones imagination. The second scene was prefaced by a short characterization of Fal stafF, Shakspeare's best humorous creation, one unique and distin guished from any other character of fiction, who could never be put into a hole, who was never so at his best as when at his worst, who would not give a reason upon com pulsion, but had ever an explana tion ready for every fault, the lying braggart, coward, whom we none of us admire, yet cannot help but love. Prince Hal is the poet's ' favorite, and upon him he show ers all the" qualities of princely manhood. He avoids the idle formality of the court to mingle in the low, rough society about Eastcheap in order that at a later time he may win greater esteem by fulfilling a promise that he never gave. Mr. Williams was best as Fal staff, and his presentation of that portly reprobate produced great laughter. The text was' artisti cally expurgated so that little of the humour was lost, and alto gether the entertainment was most excellent. We are glad to wel come among us an artist of such decided power. Y. M. C. A. Leaders for next week : Monday, R. E. Coker. Tuesday, F. C. Harding. Wednesday, G. E. Petty. Thursday, E. E. Gillespie. Subject for the week:' "The Christian Warfare." c;lee club. . The Glee Club has been train ing hard under Prof. Harrington ever since the Christinas holidays for the Spring tour. On next Monday the Club will leave to give concerts in Raleigh, Wil mington and Newbe'rn. So far the reception tendered the Club has everywhere been very favor able, and we trust we speak not amiss when we say that it has very much improved since last term, and that the entertainment offered will be satisfactory to. really critical audiences. Many new songs will be sung, chosen mainly from the new Yale and Harvard songbooks, which are delightfully modern in style and sentiment.
