With this issue the burden of the editorial function passes to new shoulders. To say that it is accept ed with some hesitation is but natu ral; for the paper has always stood high among- the many weeklies of the college world, and reputations are at best very hard things to maintain. Still, haying accepted the trust, it shall be our endeavor to see that the Tar Heel does not in any way deteriorate but always keeps close to its standard of accu rately reflecting the undergraduate life of the University. For the rest, we simply say thai the paper comes to us in the best possible shape. , The ability with which the late editor-in-chief con ducted it is too well known and of too recent memory to need recounting here; the sub-editors are alert and active to do their duty; the business department is in better shape than ever before. So, of the students, we only ask continued support, con-r fidence and good-will. the present writing, it has simply come to the point where it is . a ne cessity to wiii the Richmond game, this is the year we must win it. The past is past and the future is before us: may it be a season full of rejoicing. Is there to be an Hellenian this year ? If so, it is now long past the time that work should have been begun on it. The compiling of a creditable annual is 'not the matter of one month or of two months' work, nor is it a thing that just any body can do ; it takes time and it takes true literary instinct and abil ity. A good annual is a lasting pleasure ; a poor one is a detesta ble bore. So, if we are to have one this year, let's have a good one or none at all. Most of the editors we understand haye leen elected. Let them meei at once, organize and begin work; The copy for the whole book should be in by the middle of January, at least. It is now November and not a lick has been struck. The presiding genius of the post office has just put in our care a iei ter addressed to the "Edi-tor-in-C hief of the Hellenian,' ; ' we should be pleased to deliver the rightful owner at a very early date. The wTrk of the team last week! was not such as to inspire any great -amount pf hopefulness either in the team or its supporters. 1 The confi--rience and enthusiasm arpused by the consistent play showriv in the1 Clemson game had' barely taken' firm hold when the defeat at the hands of Blacksburg completely re versed the feeling ' This defeat coming, as it does,1 in the first game of moment, is a, bitter do?e to both the team and the college. But it will be a beneficial dnep TVi tncwif evident, fart- rf fhf game was that Carolina did xiot play, foot-ball as she can play it; that the form shovyn was not anywhere near, did not even approximate : that to which the team can be brought. And 1 5 is sa ery chee jng ii ct. V We believe that themen from this time frwai, will resolve that there must be work tnd;.pii;'ftt'if';we are to corr ct Jhc errors that can be corrected. U p id this7 game the team vakVri'My":Vtrd;,it!has now been weighed in the "balanced Only three weeks remain .until Thanks giving, tim-jeuough to correct our weaknesses, if we go abou t it in the right spirit. The Virginia-Georgia game gives us much to hope for; right now Virginia is very little b ttcr than we ;ire and they are about in conditio,!. But aside from all ifs and and, and regardless of which team ha the advantage at College Topics in a receni .issue refering to the large subscrjpilpu here for our team this year congrat ulates us on our enthusiasm and "adorns the tale" by a moral: for our Virginia friends to show some such spirit. This is truly refresh ing. We knew that we had college enthusiasm and plenty of it, but that we have more than they ilia ve at U. Va. impossible! Why, we have been hearing all along to go and do like they do up in Virginia and here they are saying, "Just look at the Tar Heels." Really, there is a mistake somewhere. ' ; Begining with this issue the reg ular press day of the Tar Heei will be Tuesday. The change is made for several reasons. In point of convenience it will help both ed itors arid printers; but the chief ad vantage isr that tthe4news fwi)i be fresher.

Living Lakes and Dead Seas. The regular bi-weekly lecture by a member of the faculty was de livered Thursday night by Prof. Cobb on the subjeet-Iiving Lakes and Dead Seas. The attendance was unusually large, the hall being crowded to overflowing, and the lecture most entertaining and in structive. Stereoptican . views of the Dead Sea, the lake of the Dismnl Swamp and numerous other seas and lakes, supplemented and illustrated the lecture, and added greatly to the enjoyment , of the occasion. This year's series of lectures is the most delightful yet arranged by the faculty. The highest number of boarders perphaps in the history of Com mons Hall has been reached. It daily feeds one hundred and fifty one students. Of them fifteen are waiters. ' Team Development. The development of the 'Varsity has been marked and the Outlook is most encouraging. The Stndent Body and the Tar Heel are pleased with the improvement, t rom now on the games are nearly all with colleges almost our equals and the final test is less distant than a mon th. Let every student of the University cheer the men on the gridiron and support the 'Varsity in the proper style. The snap and vigor w 1 1 h which the team plays, the ginger, with which they move, the grit, pluck and power, with which tlu ) are endowed, should be applaudec loudly; for with the proper encour agement and support the 'Varsity of '97 will down Virginia. . of The head to the ludo E are th with worsh bows literatu song, the V ait ex Condition of the Varsity. In running up the team work in the Clemson game Coach Reynolds said the backs were too slow in starting,' the interference was rag ged and that the work,on the whole, was unsatisfactory. There was too much fumbling-and the men did not get into evcry: play. The tackling was good and the line work in the main, was fair in the aggressive but not so good ui the defensive play. The men played with ginger and were last and snappy Dut as yet have not reached the standard re quired. ., ; ; . v ' The Philological Club. The regular meeting of the Phi lological Club'was held in'the Eng lish lecture room. The following papers were read. r V 1. Prof. Harrington: "Some Tests of a New A 1 1 i terati ve T heory ' ' Some examples of alliteration in connection with end rhyme and dis syllabic endings were pointed out. as occurring in the Latin Elegiac poets. It was shown that perfect alliteration decreased with the Ele giac-poets; that the most exact spec imens of alliteration occur in the writings of Tibullus; but that the popularity of this form of writing is not apparent until the time of Ovid. 2. Dr. Hume: "An English Charlemagne Romance" Sir Per umbras. Previous to the Arthurian romance, English translations were made of the French chanson de ges- tes, especially of the chanson de Roland. The subject of these songs was usually Charlemagne, repre sented as the defender of the Chris tian faith. Sir Fenumbras is ; 14th century reproduction from the French; with additions' from Un- English. Neither Charlemagne nor Ferumbras are conspicious in this romance, the subject matter, in the main, consisting of the wonderful victories of the Chr stians over their adversaries. 3. Mr. May: "TheCharacter of the Queen in Maria Stuart" In Ma ria Stuart, Schiller represents the imprisonment and death of May in England. She has already atoned for her guilt in sorrow and repent ancc, and Schiller excites sympathy for her by means of a vivid contest ; between her and Elizabeth, in which he idealizes Mary and pictures Eliz abeth in an unfavorable light. In the final picture Mary and not Eliz abeth becomes the true queen. ' 4. Dr. Linscott: "The Duke 'of the Three Hands, " from the Lith uanian.

The "Cloverleaf," of Kentucky University, has some very pertinent remarks in regard to the publica tion of the anuual. The tendency seems to be toward lukewarmness in the matter on account of finan cial failure last year. The U. Va. Dramatic Club has presented the University with anew bell for the Rotunda, the former one bein destroyed by the fire in 1895. We clip the following from the "Alcalde," University of Texas: "President Winston has been during the past week, a victim of the prevailing sickness. Dengue strikes down even a President. Four hundred and thirty-one is the number of students at the Univer sity of Texas, one-fourth being women."
