What's the matter with our
ball team? '
The college weekly which
I within the last two years has
j sprung up in the South seems
I now to have come to stay. This,
I year several new institutions have
established papers and are ably
j sustaining them. Our southmost
j enchanges Red and Black and
Crimson-White are .young but
lusty; Vanderbilt Hustler, Sewa
nee Times an d College ' Topics are
older and hold very high places
among college periodicals. We
congratulate editor Garlington of
the Times upon securing a Col
lege News Department in the
Atlanta Constitution, and will do
our best to aid him if called on.
LECTURE BY THOMAS
Did You Say?
We clip the following" from
College Topics and would state
that, in our opinion the remarks
are exceedingly applicable to the
state of affairs here: .
"After much correspondence
and trouble, the manager of the
.base-ball team succeeded inarrang
ing a good schedule of games, and
one of its' best features was the
.number of games to be played
upon ' the home- grounds. In
making dates for the games here,
he judged,; with reason, that the
college would support the team as
well as in years past, and at least
turn ' out " well enough to pay the
-guaranties, which ' were' made as
small as possible. Nowata game
fast week the management lost
fifteen dollars on a fifty dollar
guaranty, there being a mere cor
poral's guard in attendance. The'
students will have to come to the
games if thev expect a team to be
put in the field, as all home dates
Vill be cancelled unless the at
tendance is better at the next few
games.: One source of loss,' which
has never happened here before,
is the crowd which views every
game, free of charge, from Daw
soft's. Row. The men who dis
honestly see the games in this
manner should be made to feel
that they are doing a disgraceful
thing and that the body of stu
dents look down upon them for it.
It is to be hoped that this prac
tice will cease and that they, like
'other students here, will pay their
money to see the games."
For Dawson's Row we should
insert the roof of Professor Gore's
Laboratory and the' steps of the
Editors Tar Heel.
Will you please inform the
foot-ball men of the University,
what spirit in any man could cause
him to shoot glass balls or bottles
on the foot-ball field? Such has
been the case. - Perhaps it was
done thoughtlessly; if so, the
more should the party or parties
who did this not be permitted to
! remain longer at the University.
We are supposed ,tp have men
here who think, occasionally at
least. The foot-ball men feel that
no amount of condemnation for
such an act can be too great. Let
any one go out near the eastern
goal and see the amount of broken
glass lying around on the ground,
and he too, will cry out and shud
der a little at the thought. It is
a shame ! A Player.
Will some one answer for us?

Base-ball is the all-absorbing
topic nowadays in college jour
nalism. We notice that the Ten
nessee colleges have begun their
games and that the Universities
of Alabama and Georgia have also
entered the diamond; Sewanee
perhaps has the strongest team
west of the Alleghanies and bids
fair to give Vanderbilt quite a
tussle for the championship. So
for, University of North Carolina
has met with very good fortune,
kavingt won seven out of nine
pit. WINSTON'S LECTURE.
The second of the series of
bi-weekly lectures before the Y.
M. C. ' A. was 'delivered in the
chapel last Sunday afternoon by
Dr. Winston, subject "The Great
est Miracle." '
Mr. Stephens, President of the
Association opened the services
with the reading of the 104th
Psalm, and after a prayer and
song Dr. Winston spoke to the
audience, .All men are religious,
there is no such thing as 'a man
without religion, but religion is
only the highest experience of life
either of the individual or the
nation.' Religion may be either
formal as the Roman religion or
ideal as the Christian religion.
The great question of all relig
ion, of all life is "What is Life"
and "What is Man's Relation
with his Fellowman." These two
questions all the Philosphy of the
ages has endeavored to answer
but has failed, but Christ in His
life and teachings has answered it
and this is the greatest miracle.
This answer he summed in the
words "Do unto others as ye
would they should do unto you."
The lecture was interesting and
instructive and was enjoyed by
all present, though it was not up
to the speakers usual high standard.
" THE RELATIONS' OF JIOP
EUN GREEK TO ANCIENT
GREEK.' . . .
This was the theme that Rev.
T. R. Sampson discussed in the
Chapel last Saturday evening.
Mr. Sampson has spent fifteen
years of missionary work in
Greece, aud being a thorough'
master of the language was able
to give much light on the subject.
The speaker wished to do away
with the idea that Greek is a dead
language, and that it "bears the
same relation to the language
spoken in Greece now as Latin
does to Italian. He said that
modern Greek is essentially the
same as ancient, differing only in
the verb and in pronunciation;
that all the parts of speech, except
the verb, are the same now as they
were in the days of Xenophon.
Neither is the Greek nation
dead, but some of the character
istics of the old inhabitants are
preserved; owing to difference of
circumstances the modern Greeks
are less cultured, but . that is
because they have been an inde
pendent people only sixty years. :
Their advance. is seen in their
public school system, terminating
in the University of Athens. They
are a very bright race, quick and
ready to learn; enterprising, pro
gressive and adventurers; but
their great faults, dishonesty and
quarrelsomeness, will keep them
from ever having any national
The object of the lecture was to
arouse more enthusiasm in the
study of Greek, and to make the
student think that it is a living
language he is dealing with, one
spoken by 5,000,000 people now,
and not dead. .

One bright afternoon of the
last week Rambler strolled across
the foot-ball field, when he saw
something that made him remark,
"Caesar's ghost! What fools these
mortals be." Some one had been
shooting glass bottles upon the
field. Can it be possible that some
of our enemies had put it there
for the sake of harming our play
ers, and Rambler looked at one
large piece especially, and he
could see how it would look to
him as he was getting up from it
after a heavy rush. It certainly
was not tempting Rambler begs
and pleads that those fellows who
shoot bottles will select some more
suitable spot? Rambler.
