Team Hard at Work. Intense In
terest on the Part of the
Students. First Game.
Since our last issue all the appli
cants for the foot-ball team have
been assigned positions on the , Var
sity or Scrubs and work has be
gun in earnest.
1 he two teams have been lining
up against each other every after
noon of last week and every player
seems to be doing his best to have i
winning team representing U. N. C
In audition to the names ol appli
cants mentioned in our last issue a
number of new men can be added.
The men applying for the positions
areas follows: for ends, Coxe, Lane,
Osborne, Kluttz, Jones, Kerner,
MclverC, and Donnelly; for tackles,
Bennett, Shull, Crawford and Har
ris; for centre. Plummer and Pick-
ard; for guards, Hall, Hayes, Gant,
Bridgers, Neville and Cole; for half
backs: Berkley, Gregory, Buxton,
Howell, McRae, Copeland, Bell
amy and Mclver; for i till back:
Maklej', Graves and Best; for
for quarter Rogers, Lambeth and
Maritn. From these canidates we
can reasonably expect a good team.
Never before has such interest
been taken it the team as this year.
We know that our prospects for a
winning team are good and we feel
confident that we will be represent
ep this fall by a team that will equal
if not eclipse, the record of our fa
mous ,95 team team. Our usual de
feat on Thanksgiving Day at the
hands of Virginia has become mono
tonous and we are determined this
year to break Virginia's succession
of victories and win the Champion
ship of the South. We also have a
score with Georgia which must be

Our first game will be played
here October the first with Guilford
and every student in college, if he
can possibly afford it, should
come out and cheer the team in their
efforts. The presence of a large
crowd uot only makes the team play
better, knowing that the college
is taking interest in their welfare,
but it also aids die manager of the
team in getting outfits for players
and in running the team in general.

The Class Teams.
Since the opening of the University
two of the classes have met and chos
en captains and managers for their
class foot-ball teams. These are the
Meds. and the Freshmen. The stu
dents in Pharmacy, meeting with the
Meds., elected T. W. Kendrick, Cap
tain; C. D. Gruver, Manager, and h,
M. Humphrey, Assistant Manager.
Last year the Med. team won the
Class Championship, and from their
prompt and business-like proceeding
it may be inferred that they are deter
mined not to let the pennant be taken
away from them this ' year. Besides
the class games, Manager Gruver is
trying to arrange a game with the Da
vidson College Meds., whom our Meds.
defeated in a hard-fought game on
Thanksgiving Day two years ago.
Most of their last year's team are on
the "Hill" again this year and they
will soon get down to systematic

There are now several men on the
field trying for the 'Varsity who, last
year or the year before, were playing
on the class team.
If there is any one in college who
wants to play foot-ball and has not
yet gone out on the field because he
feels that his chances of holding a
place on the first or second college
team are altogether hopeless, let him
go out and work for all he is worth for
n position on his class team.
Our coach watches the class games
very closely and keeps his eyes open
for men who seem to have any foot
ball stuff in their composition.
Nothing is better for the 'Varsity
than practice games with a regularly
organized team, and this is another
way in which the class teams can help
to make a stronger 'Varsity.
So let the Senior, Jumor, Soph and
Law Classes meet at once and elect
them captains for the present season
and in this way help to accomplish
what we are all striving for, namely,
