That's the tale of the. great Thanksgiving game. And it was without doubt the greatest g-ame ever played in the South. The whole-! field was filled with Navy Blue -and Orange, with anoc casional glimpse of White and Blue. And though the loved White and Blue cannot wave in triumph, 'et she is not disgraced. She played nobly and fairly, putting- up the best-game she's played this season The game was played under'rnany difficulties, especially suffering from the crowd who could -not be kept off the Held. The teams lined up as follows: ' Va. N. C Cocke, Ponton, , Weistr Simins; Davis, Morris, ; Jackson, Haxton, Lambert, Jcnes, ",;injr, ' The umpires were Messrs. Lloyd, of 'Richmond College, and Beau mont, of U. Pa. Mr. ' John Poe of Princeton was referee, and Messrs. Baskerville and Potts, linemen. Halves of 35 minutes were played. Gregory won toss and chose the west goal. At 2:50 p. m. Lambert kicked off 45 yards to Stephens who makes 12. Then he adds five more. Moore goes five and then fumbles, but Whitaker regains the ball. Butler makes 3, Stephens five and Moore fails to gain. Baird makes 1 yard, Stephens goes around 38 and Moore 10, but as he is tackled he drops the ball and Va. gets it. Lang kicks 25 and Whitaker gets the ball iu touch. It is brought in and Moore makes 3 yards. Then Stephens makes 5, Moore 5, Stephens 15 and Moore 2. Hurley and Butler add 2 each, but Moore can't find a hole. Stephens makes 5, then 1, then , putting ball on 10 yard line. The next' play is a fumble, Whitaker getting it. Stephens makes 4. The next play looks like a touchdown, but Stephens fumbles it and the ball goes over. And when it did, Carolina's hopes were destroyed. Lambert makes 2 yards, Penton can't gain. Lang kicks 30 in touch to Butler. Moore makes 5, Ste phens 10, but the ball goes over on a foul. Penton makes 3, Lambert 2, Jones iails to gain, then loses a yard. I Right here the umpire ruled out Merritt and Jackson for slugging. Jackson had slugged Moore and as Merritt ' tried to separate them, though he had done no slugging, the umpire ruled him off. Steele took his place. Lang kicks 25 yards to Whitaker who passes it back to Butler; gain ing 10 yards. Stephens makes 5, and is laid out with his lame shoul der, but gets into the game again. Baird makes 4, and Butler punts to Lambert who muffs the ball and Baird gets it. 1 Moore and Stephens push through for 5 each, i Moore adds 4 more. Whitaker fumbles but falls on ball. Stephens adds 5, And the next rush Moore fumbles and Va. gets the ball. I Lang fails to gain, Penton makes 2 yards and the ballas punted in touch. Right here the umpire rules. Collier; off for plugging. , The decision was unfair, as Collier, only spilled the full-back after he had kicked. Carolida "kicked long and hard - and Collier remained in the game. r Lang then makes 5 yards i and HaX' ton frets 10 on double pass. Then Lambert fails to gain and on the next down Va. fumbles. and regains the ball. But it is ours on downs. Gregory makes 30 on double pass from Stephens'and of course the syni pathetic Virginia crowd covered '.the field. It took "both teams to clear at Baird fails to gain, - Moore makes 7, Stepheus'3,. Moore '2,.andthe first, half is over, with'I'the ball in , Carolina's possesion only five-yards from Virgin ia guai. SECOND HALF. Butler'kicks 35 yards to Jones who brings it back 15. Penton makes '. 6, then he and Jones both fail to gain. So Lang punted 40 yards to , Whitaker who passes it to Butler gaining twenty yards. Stephens and Baird add five each, Hurley 12, Wright. 2, Stephens 15. Collier fails to gain, Moore makes three, but his fumble gives Virginia the ball. Haxton fumbles, no gain. ' He then ries double pass and loses five by Gregory's pretty tackle. Lang punts 25 to Butler who makes 6; Stephens makes 2 and loses 3, ; so Butler punts 20 to Jones who is downed in his first tackle .by Steele and Wright. Lang makes 2, then 6, then 1; Penton adds 3, then Haxton gets round on a double pass for 25. Penton makes 2 yards and the next rush Lang takes it 35 yards for a touchdown.

Then Jones failed to gain, Lang makes 2 and it is third down in a yard from the goal. Lang gets all but six inches and it is our ball by beautiful work". Butler punts to Lambert who brings it back to the 12 yard line. Lang , fails to gain., i Haxton makes 4 on double pass but Penton can't add the other Our ball. Moore mates b, uaira v, Nicklin is ; substituted at right - end. Moore makes double pass to Nicklin gaining five yards. Stephens goes round the end for 30, Baird punts 40 to Lambert, Lambert fails to gain and the game is over. The erame. was very slow, being lull of talking and disputing and was often stopped entirely to clear the held, we make no excuse for the loss, as we put up a game superior in every way to Virginia's except fumbling, and by that the game was lost principally. Virginia had all the luck and most ; of the decisions. No player was ser iously hurt. The Inter-Collegiate Debate. ').. - COMMUNICATED i As a loyal member of one of the University Literary Societies, I was. pleased to ' read in a recen number of the Tar Heel a short article advocating a debate between the literary societies of North Caro lina and Virginia. , Anionc the Northern colleges these intercolle giate debates1 are growing in im portance and are beginning to riva the athletic contests in general fa vor. Those institutions now meet in the intellectual struggles of the debate as regularly as in the physi cat struggles of the ball-field; and the result is being shown in an in creased attention to oratory, which as an art j and accomplishment, has been on the wane, j It 6ccurs to me thati the Uniyer sjty of North Carolina might learn something in this line from her Northern sisters. It is a deplorable fact. that there . is ,not . the interest and enthusiasni in the Literary so cieties b the University that there was in the; ante-bellum days or even later. Various' causes have been ascribed and some remedies tried with but . doubtful success. A few years ago the Inter Society De bate between the Di. and Phi. was inaugurated to arouse this' love for the did societies, but the desired ef feet fcas not been obtained; there is sometimes difficulty in even indue ing the members to represent the societies in these debates. . 1 The athletes claim that inter collegiate contests are necessary to the life of athletics; and a promi nent Wake Forest athlete was quot ed by the Raleigh Nelve & Obser ver recently as saying that the re f usal of ; the Wake Forest faculty to allow games with other colleges would kill all athletics there., A comparison of the skill gained at one college with that attained at another college is a necessary incen tive to the efforts put forth in ac quiring that skill. Might not this principal be ap plied in the work of the Literary Societies? Now, there is not enough encentive to society work at the University to induce the stu dents to take any real interest in it, It is true that there are the contests for medals, in the societies, the debate between the societies, and the commencement speakings; but they seem not to be sufficient. Victories over fellow-students in the same college do not carry with them the same satisfaction and glory as those over students in other col leges. In contests with other col leges the feeling of college pride, and love for alma mater 'produces more zeal and earnest preparation. So if the' University of North Car olina would meet some other univer sity in annual debate, renewed in terest would be -enthused into all the members, of the societies, and all the students, improving the minor contests and ordinary literary exercises If this debate were with the University's great rival, the University of Virginia, the desire would be all the greater because of the rivalry between the two institu tions in other matters. I Harvard invariably loses her ath letic contests with Yale, of late years, but she as regularly wins the great debates between the two universities, c PerhapsU.N. C. may be able to achieve glory in the same way. Let the old Di. and Phi. challenge the. Literary Societies of the University of Virginia to a de bate and let them arrange a league so that the contests may occur every year; and if they improve the,. work of the societies at. Chapel Hill they will delight hundreds of alumni, who cherish j particularly warm places in their hearts for the old Dialectic and Philanthropic Socie ties. A Phi Alumnus. ! Nov. 18, 1895. The Second Team. j For the past ; few weeks, the 'Scrubs" have been doing excellent work against the 'Varsity, and in doing this work have gotten out a second , team which surpasses any we have ever known here before. And as a reward for their faithful work, they have been granted per mission to take a Thanksgiving trip. So a game has been arranged between then and the Wilmington Athletic Association, to be played at Wilmington on Thursday. We wish them much success in their .venture, for if any team deserves to win it. is the one which has taken so many bumps and bruises, with the patriotic spirit of making our 'Varsity what she is. r In all, Capt Rogers will take fif teen men, and they will play as fol lows: ' Joyner, centre; Bagwell; right guard; Carson, left guard; La,ke, right tackle; Allen, . left tackle; Winston, right end; Best, left end; Rogers, quarter-back; Bailey, right half-back; Haywood, left half-back; Williams, full-back. Subs: Belden, back; Peace, back and end; Dowd, guard; Jones, tackle. The University Co-oparative , Society. , A number of the faculty and stu dents met in the Chapel on Tuesday evening, to discuss the year's work, and to decide whether the store should be continued. After a general discussion those present voted to continue the store. Among the points spoken of, two should be especially emphasized: (1) The store is not a stock concern, and no money is made in it. It is simply an arrangement among the students by which they can pur chase their goods at a reasonable price. (2) This price is far below the ordinary dealer's retail price, g. a certain article, the dealers n w hich sold for $3.25 a dozen at wholesale, was bought through the , Co-operative Society for $3.00 a . dozen. A book, usually soia ior $1.25 was bought for 65c. More or ess money is saved on every article purchased. i I i it u i : & 3 J? I if h 8 'IT 1
