ENTERED AT THE POST OFFICE OF CHAPEL BILL,
N. C AS SECOND-CLASS MATTER.
FRIDAY, MAY II, 1894.
Br mistake the report of Dr.
Hume's lecture did not appear in
the last issue of the Tar Heel, but
feeling that such an event in the
literary life of the University
could not be omitted, we publish
it at this late day, asking pardon
for the delay.
"We hate met Virginia in two
games, and the championship is
undecided still ; at least, a third
game is necessary to settle it. We
trust Virginia will agree to play
the other three, for which our
management have asked, in North
Carolina. Year after vear we have
met our rivals in their own terri
tory, and now we think they owe
it to us to play in our State.
If we are not champions in base
ball we are in tennis. Our scores
with Virginia and Richmond Col
lege show that we are far superior
in that branch of athletics. This
new departure is encouraging; it
shows a broadening of our athletic
life which has hitherto been too
much restricted to foot-ball and
base-ball; they do not constitute
all of athletics. May the time soon
Come when our track will be a
reality. Many efforts have been
made in that direction,, but all un
successful! v. .
AYe would commend to the
perusal of the executive members
of the Faculty this issue's article'
by "Rambler." The grievances
therein mentioned are very appa
rent, and should be immediately
remedied. Great neglect has been
shown in the management of the
baths. For several weeks there
has been no warm water, and deli
cate, weak-nerved students un
dergo great danger to their health
by bathing in cold water.
The gentlemen of the Univer
sity who still owe their Tar Heel
subscription will confer a very
great favor on the Business Man
ager if the v will call and settle
w - .... . 1 r.. ....
) ir bills at once. The year is
almost ended and all accounts
must be closed up.
It has been decided that eight
Seniors shall speak at commence
ment instead of six, as prescribed
by rule. "We are unable to see
why the Faculty should require
all Seniors who wished to speak to
enter a contest and give their
whole speech to the public, in order
to choose the six representative
men, and then allow all who wish
to show their eloquence to speak
at last. It seems to us a needless
and altogether unnecessary burden
to place on the gentlemen of the
THOSE FOOT-BALL. SUITS.
Repeated requests have been
made in these columns by the
manager of the foot-ball team for
the return of the suits loaned out
to some men, and most of those
not members of the team, to be
used in practice. Out of thirty
suits only four.have been returned.
Whatever be the cause, it is not to
be pardoned.' Spring practice is
a good idea and the management
has shown wisdom in starting it.
By it the aspiring candidates have
had an opportunity of preliminary
instruction in the rudiments of the
game, and it is their duty to assist
the manager of the team and not
make his already arduous work
more trying. One waT of so doing
is to return those suits, and not
put the manager to the extra
trouble of hunting them up, as he
is responsible for them. The rule
is too general, that a few in this
world have to bear all the burden.
Let us be an exception, and instead
of hindering our athletic mana
gers, do all we can to lighten their
AVe clip the following accout of
field day at Davidson College from
the Charlotte Observer. It may
be of interest to our readers : '
Davidson College, May 7. The
"annual athletic day" last Satur
days at Davidson was a grand suc
cess. The day itself was perfect,
the attendance good and the exer
cises exceedingly-interesting. The
executive committee of the ath
letic association has had the ar
rangement of the programme in
hand for two months, and by
their untiring efforts, Saturday
was made a gala day in the history
of old Davidson. 'The following

"Ah! wad some power the giftie gie us
To see airsilves as ithers 836 us ! "
As Rambler wended his way
across" our beautiful campus his
nostrils were assailed by a most
horrible odor. Some investigation
revealed that the cause of this was
the steam engine of the University
Press. This is an oil engine, anil
the smoke and gases are barely
conducted outside the room and
then set free to burden the air
with an odor at once unpleasant
and unhealthy', ...By. the construc
tion of a Hue this gas could bo con
ducted to such a height as to pass
olf without evil effects, ami this at
a very small expense. "We are
willing, for the good of the Uni
versity, to endure the noise and
commotion of the press, but thus
to offend our nostrils is adding in
sult to injury.
The Rambler is charmed with
the improvement in tho ball-room.
The paint has added one hundred
per cent, to its beauty ; but does
not this diminish the expense of
the final balls? Hitherto decora-
! ting the ball-room has been tho
I greatest item of expense, and the
I decrease of this source of expense
I should, be accompanied by a cor
! responding decrease of the ball fee.
; Memorial Hall is badly in need
i of a little paint and a great deal of
i soap and water. This would not
cost much, and should be attended
to before commencement. Tho
least we can do is to keep in good
repair this colossal foolishness.
After his exertions, Rambler
decided to take a bath for his re
freshment, but was shocked to find
no warm water, and upon inquiry
found that there had been none for
three weeks ! Pray ! gen tlemen of
the management, how do you ex
pect the boys to bathe in water but
a few degrees above zero 1 1
After this rebuff Rambler re
turned to his den convinced that
one fool can find more faults in an
hour than the seven wise men
could correct in a month, and
