OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, I. C, Feb. 20th. 1897.
Approved by the Phi. Society and IV
Probably Pa$s the Di. To-night.
The committees appointed by the
two societies presented their report
last Saturday night.. An over
whelming majority accepted the re
nort in the Phi, and its considera
r . -. .....
tinn was postponed one week by the
Di which will, it is hoped, endorse
the plan without much opposition.
The, report as it was adopted In
the Phi. Society, provides that five
editors shall be elected from each
society, these to select from their
i :.- .-1-r i
nwn nuraoer an cuiiui-iu-iuiui ami
business manager. Each membe
of the society is to subscribe to th
magazine, the said subscription to
be paid by October 1st of each ses
sion. All financial and literary
management of the publication is to
be entrusted exclusively to the edi
tors, and it is further provided that
no member of the faculty7 shall be
long to the board. It is to be en
tirely a student publication, without
professorial or alumni interference,
though anyone is at libertv to sub-
mitarticles for publication. In short
the students are to be the control
ling- power and their work will hold
(precedence over other contributions.
This movement will undoubtedly
improve both the societies and their
individual members, and if the mag
azine is properly regulated, it can
not fail to prove a success. If it
does show itself a successs, and its
literary tenor is , sufficiently high,
the faculty will probably be only too
glad to follow the example of noiivj
jother institutions and give academ
ic credit for contributions of the
proper merit. ;;

University of Virginia,
Feb. 9th, 1897.
This year has been an important
one in the history of our institution
For nearly ten months now the
work on the new buildings, whicli
are to replace those destroyed by
lire last year, has gone steadily fori
ward; and at last we can clearly
see that the fire, which consumed
our Rotunda and Annex in Oct
'95, was but a blessing in disguise
Our quadrangle is rapidly being- en
closed by the rising walls of the
three new buildings at the lower
end of the Town, while the Rotunda
will soon be ready for our new li
brary. The Academic building is,
well on its way, and the Electrical
and Mechanical Halls are being"
roofed over. Enough has been com
pleted to judge the harmony of the
new buidings with the Greek style
of architecture which marks the
buildings on the Lawn. Jefferson's
plan of copying the best models of
classic architecture on the Lawn
has been well continued by the
graceful designs of McKein, Meade
and White, the architects of the
Grand Court at the Columbian Fair.
Our curriculum has been gradually
broadened until the spirit of prog
ress is as marked in that line as in
the erection of the new buildings.
The Medical Faculty has added a
third vear to its course; the Law
Faculty by the addition of more tic
kets, has made a B.L. the work of
not ltjss than two years; while in
the engineering department the B,
S. .degree, with a greater option in
the choice ot work, has succeeded
the more rigid C. B. The' encour
agement of graduate work in the
Academic department is the. latest
advance in the direction of true Uni
versity work. As a result of the
action taken by the Board of Visi
tors this year in encouraging grad
uate work, there are nineteen men
taking post-graduate studies in col
lege at the present time.
With the return of fair weather
this week the athletic field has
shown the first signs of life since
the foot-ball season. About thirty-
five are busily at work for a place
on the base-ball team. Mr. Coogan,
of Providence, R. L, has been se
cured to teach our boys how to get
n the game. As soon as he comes
there will be a thinning out among
the applicants until the select few
are found. Games begin the fif
teenth of March and with two or
three every week continue until the
Southern tour is made the last of
June, Three of last year's team
are on the field already; Hoxton,
our crack short-stop, has not de-
idtd to come out yet, but if Virgin
ia finds that she must have him,, he
will undoubtedly appear on the
Besides athletics, "politics" in
the iterary societies has kept things
ively here. Unfortunately for the
Magazine, the societies have not yet
called a halt in their quarrels.
Wm. J. Bryan has been invited
by, the societies to delrver the ora-f
tion here at finals, -He ihas not ac-
cepted the .invitation yet. Not any!
free silver sentiment, but our admi
ration for his ability as an orator,
obtained for him the invitation.
TheiFairweather bequest of $150,
000 will probably :be used to erect aj
much needed hospital 'for the Meds
Thus the medical .school with its
long desired hospital will be much!
better equipped than ever before.
The University ;Golf Club was
reorganized last week with the fol
lowing officers: F. A. Gudger,'
President; M. C. Elliott, Vice
President; W. S. Howard, Sec'y.
Links will be put up in a fixed
position shortly and play will begin
immediately thereafter. '
Applicants for membership should

THE TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAt STATE
The twenty-first Annual State
Convention promises to be a very
fine meeting. The attendance will
be large and the program interest
ing. Among those who are to make
addresses are Dr. A. C. Barron,
pastor First Baptist Church of
Charlotte; Rev. Wm. Black, the
well known evangelist; Professors
P. P. Claxton, of Greensboro, and

International Committee will be
represented by Messrs. H.P.An
derson and H. W. Georgi. Topics
will be discussed covering the whole
range of Association subjects. Es
pecial attention will be given to the
educational work, to Bible study.
and to the religious work of our
Young Men's Christian Associa
A, conference of the College Asso
ciations, Presidents will be held by
Mr. Georgi on Feb. 18th and 19th,
and it is hoped each College Asso
ciation will send its new president
in order that he may be instructed
in his important work.
All Christian workers, and es
pecially Christian men "in towns
where there are no Associations,
are cordially invited to attend; and
every pastor will be welcomed.

Captain "Pat" Stanley is back at
last! That sets us more firmly on
our feet than ever and portends a
very favorable season.
First base, centrefield, and third
base will be held by Winston,
Whitaker and Johnson, who have
what is known as a "cinch" on
these respective positions. The oth
er places are in doubt. Bailey will
play either at catch or at short.
Other promisinj applicants for the
different posts are as follows:
Short-stop, Woodard and Belden;
Second, Alston; Left-field, McKee;
Right-field, Ia v i s; Centrefield,
Rogers; Pitchers, Tate, Hines, Wil

others are trying for the team, but
have, .not yet attained any special
On the whole everything is as fa
vorable -as before, and though none
of our-old ' 'twirlers"have returned,
the new material -is most promising
and will probably come up to the
mark in due time.
The prize offered by the Helleh-
tan for the best contributioncahndt
be competed for by any member of
the faculty or alumni. The otter
is made exclusively for the students,
the editors being excepted.
Contributions must be submitted
by the first of March.
The officers of the Philosophical
Club desire to explain that it has
not been their fault that nd meet
ings were held. No one can be
found who will prepare papers for
presentatation and therefore it has
seemed useless to order a meeting
of the Club.
If any one desires to address the
members on some philosophical sub
ject, a convocation of the august
asembly will be immediately ordered.
Cards of invitation to two mar
riages among the alumni were re
ceived by Dr. Battle last week.
