And at the beginning of our undertaking wp wish to impress npon our sub- ' x scribers the large share of the re sponsibility that rest upon them. The financial condition of the last volume and the business managers books With their long list of unpaid subscriptions show that however hard the editors may labor the pa- ner ran never be a success without L . the support of its readers. So we hope that 'every,- friend and alumnus of the University, every one who feels an interest in our ath le.tics or anv branch of our""college life, will give us the support which we hope to deserve and without which we can not hope to succeed. Last year there was much troub le caused by the boys crowding around the foot ball players while practicing and seriously interfering with their work. Thisjyear and es pecially for-the last few days, we are glad to notice that there has not been so much of it. Now if we want to turn out a win ning team it can only be done by hard work, and those of us 'who are not willing to contribute our muscle to cause should at least give those who are the privelege of doing so. There is plenty of room in the grandstand or on the grounds out side of the side lines, so let everybody keep off the field and give the boys a chance. day night. They had been amusing themselves by whistling the well known freshman march to the mem bers of that class as they marched across the hall. Soon two ladies entered and the whistling continued and the ladies were forced to keep step to the inspiring strains as they walked across the . hall to their seats. Now, perhaps this was mere thoughtlessness and none , of the whistling intended for the ladies, but whistling of any kind was en tirely out of place on such an occa sion, and we can find no excuse for a man so forgetting himself as to in dulge in such conduct at the expense of ladies. We sincerely hope that nothing' further of this kind may occur. Nature has done a great deal for Chapel Hill and the vicinity. There is possibly, little to call up a feeling of the Sublime not tower ing peaks, beetling crags, yawning caverns, or rushing rivers; but slop ing hills, shady nooks, and rippling brooks are found on every hand. lne student who spends any length of time at the University, and does not take advantage of such an opportunity to ire t thoroughly in sympathy with -Nature, is leav ing what he will probably not be able to get anywhere else, under as favorable circumstances. , The attractive strolls and walks are almost without number. .Lau rel Hill, Otey's Retreat, Purifoy's Mill and Pond, the old .iron mine, Glen Burney, Mt. Bolus, the Rob bers Den, and Piney Prospect to say nothing ot 5attle s irjirk and other places near at hand can all be visited within an hour or two; and having once seen them, in most cases the visitor will continue to go. It cannot be out of place, even in a college paper, to devote a short notice to the great Cotton States' International Exposition, which is the greatest educational factor to day in the South. The influence that it will exert in placing before the world, the incalculable and su perior advantages of the South can not be over rated. It will do a needed and important service in ac quainting the world with the Sun ny South, so richly endowed in all things that are good. As many as can should avail themselves of . the rare privilege to see this climax of the Southern genius. It was with much surprise and regret that we observed the conduct of some of the students at the Y. M. C. A. reception last Fri- The advice of President Winston given in the Chapel several mornings ago as to the method of prevent ing such trouble as was had last Sat urday night was in the main whole some and good. No one should seek or desire a disturbance, but on the other hand should use everv reason able effort to avoid one. But his advice was hardly appli cable to the event referred to. If we have the matter corectly, sev eral students, while passing along the street, were halted and insolent ly approached by a score of darkies. It was not the fault of the students and it is a gross injustice to attach any censure to them. Those who are fond of Nature, and who derive pleasure "from watching the forest as the leaves change from the deep, mature green of the late Summer to the rich pur ples, reds, 3'ellows and browns of autumn; will miss that pleasure du ring this season. The recent hot; dry weather has literally cooked vegetation. ' The leaves, instead of ripening' slowly as usual, are dry ing up. Many of them can be pull ed off the trees and crumbled in the hand. Everywhere one sees the ef fect of the drouth, as if a Chimaeaa had breathed upon t he earth. IT is politic to cater to the whims and opinions of a class if your wel fare depends on that class, but it is not safe to endanger the future of young men by unnecessary ; iudul gences. It is convenient to be able to buy necessary things when you haven't the ready money, but to be able to buy anything at all times and to pay for it at leisure is an en- arrangement which creates sloth- fulness in business relations. I ins credit system has been practiced so long and has therefore gained such a hold on every one that no business proiect is certain unless run on a cash basis. Every merchant : in town deducts so much for negli gence every time he posts his books. No one claims that his negligence is caused by dishonesty, but all know it is the result of our loose credit system. Is there no way to remedy this evil? Should young men be allowed to become negligent in business af fairs when the cause of the negli gence can be remedied? We would like to hear this subject discussed and our columns will be open for the discussion. The. history of weekly publica tions in our University has been the same from the beginning, viz: fail ure. This fact has been partly due to the management, but in a greater degree to the patrons of the paper It will be the aim ot the present board to discuss freely all questions pertaining to college life, we will also feel at liberty to call upon any student or member of the Faculty for an expression of opinion. Athletic Association. -The Association held its first meeting for this year in Gerrard Hall Monday evening, Sept. 2lst Mr. W. A. Graham stated the ob ject of the meeting to be the elec tion of officers. for the coming, year, and a board of editors for the Tar Heel. Mr. Geo. G. Stevens was unani mously elected to succeed himself as president of the Associaton. Other elections were as follows. For Vice-President, W. D. Car- micheal, Jr; for Sect, and Treas Jas. A. Gwyn; for post graduate member of the advisory committee, W. R. Kenan, Jr.; for undergradu ate member, Jno. C. Eller. Mr. Graham moved that a committee of three be appointed to assist the busi ness managers of the Tar. Heel in' settling its present account and to devise some means for its suc cessful management in ' the future. Carried Dr. Venable, Mr. Wills and Mr. Eller were appointed. 1 he Association next went into election of editors" for the Tar HEEL,, the following being elected: Messrs. Settle Dockery, Jno. A.

Mr. Graham then moved that the executive and advisory committees acting together, : be allowed- to ap points captain for the foot ball team subject to the ratification ' of ' the team when selected carried. MrSan ford moved that the election of cap tain for the track team be- left to the committee carried There being no further business the meeting adjourned. Ask Arthur what his monkey will do under such circumstances.'.' 506 STUDENTS The total enrollment is 506. Now for 600 by June! ' Y. M. C. A. Reception. The reception annually tendered the new students by the Association took place in the Memorial Hall Friday night last. The students and villagers' alike readily took advantage of this 0p. portunity of ; meeting each other, 0f making new acquaintances and re newing old ones, and of spending a short while in social intercourse. Quite a crowd greeted Mr. Home president of the association, when he arose and opened the exercises of the evening in a brief speech giving some idea of the work and purpose of the association. President Horne then introduced the speakers of the evening in the following order: , Mr. G.G. Stevens Athletics and the Association. ' Mn R. Wright The two Liter- ary Societies. Dr. Winston Relation of the As soc i a t ion to t h e Un i ve r s i ty . Mr. Curry Relation of the As sociation to the Church. Dr. Battle Places of historic in terest about Chapel Hill. The addresses were followed by musical selections rendered by the Glee-Banjo-Mandolin Clubs which added greatly to the enjoyment of the evening. A crowd of thought less boys began to whistle the fresh man march and immediately imitat ed by a little barking dog, until then unnoticed, which goes to show that every body has some influence. The reception was voted a suc cess by those present, the ia going away more in touch w per classmen, While the latter expe rienced a feeling akin to ril ous ness over the part they had played me a up- contributing in pleasure. to the freshmen's A.

In clipping- the hair with scis sors, this hollow is left open, and the hair loses its life-giving properties.
