'There was much talk of the football game last Fall, and the Lehigh game was very highly praised. ;- " Carolina has the strongest nine the team met on the trip." We are glad to annouuce the organization of Alpha The'ta Phi here as an' honor society. ' Some thing is offered the ambitious stu dent .more material than high grades. The men composing the society are recognized in every phase of college. life as leaders and :.worthy. men. There is a place here in our life for such a society. It cannot other .than do good.

' ". ' 'Varsity ? ; men have always been noted throughout the State for the courtesy extended by them to visitors, and it is highly grati fying to know that our reputation for the same at present is gaining ground. The following, clipped from the Brozvn and While, and written by a member of the 'Le high team, gives evidence of the impression received at- U. N. C, and gracefully expresses just what we would say concerning the boys from Bethlehem: - - "The hospitable treatment received everywhere, especially at the University of. North Carolina, where the greatest possible courtesy was shown the team, shows that the best of feeling towards Lehigh exists in the Southern colleges. A finer lot of men than the University of North Carolina affords would be hard to find, and amicable rivalry with them on the athletic field both in baseball . and Our games with Vermont come off this week. Very few of the Hillians can be present to witness them, but if good wishes and faith in the home team . boot" for any thing, it is probable that U. N. C. will come out with flying colors. The record made by the boys in the last three games is truly en couraging, i ' , Practice, 'X earnest, attentive practice, is all that is needed. . Fellows, go in and win; we are backing you. In this day of athletics, danc ing and fuss some people have claimed .that the University can do nothing along literary Hues.. We are sorry that the aforesaid people are so pitiably ignorant in regard to our progress here, , r The Shakspeare Clttb has never been more successful, nor afforded more enjoyable entertainment to the students than it has this year. The Historical and Mitchell So cieties are full of life. . Owx Mag azine speaks for itself,, and we have two weeklies. Inasmuch as some; may, not be convinced of our capabilities,, we? clip the fol lowing from the Charlotte Obser ver written by our friend and fellow student, Mr.H. J.Stockard: The best writdr'on verse in the State is perhaps Prof. Henry Jer6me Stockard, of the University. We have the pleasure of printing this morning .another poem of undoubted, merit from his pen. -( '. APR it, days.

BY LEO WHEAT AND TUXEDO OUITAE , AND MANDOLIN CLUB. ; On Tuesday night the student body was treated to the finest con cert by far that has taken place at the Hill for many days. Leo was again homeathlsAlmaMater, and the effect produced by recur ring memories and associations was plainly noted in his feeling renditions. The audience seemed to sympathize with him from the first, in fact they could not help it. The spirit of a man devoted to and lost in his art never fails to permeate an audience, elevating and ennobling for the time being, if no longer, their routine govern ed lives. The first selection, one of Faust's Operas, was elegant, the best of Wheat's performances during the night. Scarcely less applauded was the encore, a mother's lullaby, composed by the player himself. As regards the Tuxedo quartette, they are, as Leo styled them, simply "out of sight." Their music, highly classical and very delicate, com pletely captivated ' the hearers. More perfect minors have seldom been rendered here in any musi cal e. "Washington Post March" and "The British Patrol," possi bly, were the best effusions, yet it is hard; to; place any above the final medley of Southern Airs, which, closing with " Dixie," brought the company assembled almost with enthusiasm to their feet. Below is appended the pro gramme, which ere long we hope to hear agaiu. ,. - , , PROGRAMME. T. Piano Solo Selections from Faust, 1 Gounod. . Mr. Wheat. 2. Overture Selections from Trovatore, ' Verdi.
