A good track team has struggled
into life, and is composed of mem
bers of pluck and determination.
With the increasing popularity of
the general practice work the in
crease in the number of participants
is encouraging. .
Any students intending to take
part in the track work will find it
to their advantage to join the team
without further delay.
Surely the student body desires
to see amateur athletics well estab
lished on a successful basis. Who
are the athletes who will encour
age and be in earnest to help the
growing success of track athletics?
It would be gratifying to those now
training to have other students join
them in this new source of outdoor
amusement and developing sport.
The variety of the field day events
will depend on the aspirants. It is
hoped that we can have a full list
of events, and offer prizes.
La'ing out the track has been
planned, and an excellent cinder
path will be made. The commit
tee decided on a five lap track.
Work on it will begin soon, and the
track team are to enjoy a fine field
It may be well to add that if there
are any students who prefer to train
for special events in the contests on
field day they will be given the
privilege of doing special training.
On, Monday evening the Young
Men's Christian Association prayer
meeting was led by the Rev. J. D.
Miller, rector of St. Andrew's
Church, of Greensboro. The speak
er's subject was "Ideals. " He show
ed that mankind at one time, made
physical. perfection its : ideal; now
the intellectual is in the ascendency;
but the true ideal is found in Christ
and is the spirit of serving others
rather than have them serve us.
The Scrub Team.
The scrub team has arranged a game
with the Wilmington Athletic Club to
be played at Wilmington on Thanks
giving Day. This is a good move in
the right direction and its effects were
seen Wednesday when Capt. Rogers
brought out a scrub team that scored
on the 'Varsity.
It is no small thing for a man who
has not the faintest hope of , making
the 'Varsity to come out day after day
and be run over and knocked about by
a lot of big men simply to furnish prac
tice for the regular team.
If the scrub team has a small sched
ule of games, then there will be some
incentive for the men to come out and
try to make the team and we have just
seen that they will come out.
Those who make the team will have
a nice trip to reward them for their
work. We will have a better 'Varsity
and better material to begin with next
The Historical Society held its
first meeting for the year in the
History Room, on Tuesday evening. ,
President Battle called the meeting'
to order at 7:30 p. m., and stated
briefly, for the benefit of the new
men, the objects and purposes of
the Society. The . resignation of
Mr. Thompson as Secretary of the'
Society was read and accepted.
Mr. J. H. White was elected to . fill
the vacancy caused by the resigna
tion of Mr. Thompson.
The first paper of the evening,
read by Mr. White was an instruc
tive one. Its subject was "The-
Gang." '. ,
The subject of the next paper was
"The Battle of Moore's Creeek,"
which was- abby and thoroughly
treated by Mr. Evans. He thinks
that Caswell commanded in the en
gagement by seniority, but that
Fillington was the real leader, as
he reached the field before Caswell.
By this battle the Tories were dis
couraged and the State saved to the
Whigs. Mr. Evans's paper was
supplemented by some able and en
tertaining remarks by Pres. Win
ston. Dr. Battle read the last paper of
the , evening. The ' subject was,
"The Duel between Carson and
Vance." The article was contrib
uted by an old gentleman from Ma
con County, Mr. Silas McDowell.
Vance was an uncle of our late
Senator Vance, was born in 1793,
began active life as a physician, but
early discontinued the practice of
his profession, was elected to Con
gress in 1821, but defeated for a
second term by Samuel P. Carson,
in 1853. The duel was the result
of a quarrel between them over the
position which Mr. Carson had
taken on some measure passed by
the House of Representatives. Mr.
Vance was wounded in the side and
died within twenty-four hours.
The meeting was well attended.
The Society promises to do some
able work during this year.
