'Varsity Administered a Crushing
Defeat to Virginia Polytecnic
Institute in Winston Last Fri
day. The 'Varsity team left last Thurs
day evening for Winston where it
was to meet their old opponents
from Blacksburg. This was the
first strong team that has lined up
against the 'Varsity this season, so
the outcome of the game was await
ed with quite a good deal of inter
est. Last year the Virginia lads
defeated our team by a score of 4 to
0. Burning with a desire to wipe
out this score, Carolina went into
the game determined to win and to
pile up a large score. As a result
the "fame ended with a final score of
North Carolina's 28 to Virginia's b.
The two teams were about equal in
weight but Carolina's superior
training and greater knowledge of
the game told in the long- run. Tin
first half was close and exciting-, the
Carolinians not yet having thorough
ly warmed to their work. But in
the second half they went to work
with a dash and vi m which complete
ly overwhelmed their opponents.
Coach Reynolds was high in his
praise of the team's behavior and
said that he had never witnesseed a
better game by Carolina.
To name the stars for the 'Var
sity be to include the entire team.
The names of Rogers, Howell, Shull
and Beunctt deserve especial nien

A Student's Sentiment.
Almost every year various arti
cles appear in the Tar Heel, set
ting forth the views of some stu
dent or collection of students, on
different phases of our College life.
Some of these articles may be sar
castic and unnecessarily bitter, all
of which is entirely uncalled for,
and is out of place; but the majori
ty of them are simply corteous, but
frank expressions of opinions on
matters of vital interest to the wri
ter. This privilege belongs to ev
erybody. In a free country like
ours no man can be 'denied the right
to raise his voice in approval or dis
approval of anything that involves
liis own interest, and especially so
when his interests are being tram
pled upon, andhis rights and privil
eges taken from him.
Be it far from the present writer
to say or imply anythnig injust a
bout any man or any department of
the University. If he does do so,
let the public sentiment of the stu
dent body condemn his act, and
correct his error, but grant him the
privilege to defend the rights of
himself and his fellow students.
It is passing strange that in some
departments of the University men
full grown men- are treated as tho'
they wete scarcely weaned from
their mother's breast and are gov
erned by rules that have long been
extinct, even in the "prep" schools.
The University has indeed come to
a deplorable state of affairs, when
it gets so that a student can't leave
the class room after the bell rings
without being pillored before the
class and a storm of abuse from the
Then with four men hanging on professor. Much less has that
his back he falls over for a touch-! professor a ri-ht to drive him back
and force him to take his seat when
other classes are awating him, and
other professors are being annoyed
elsewhere. In fact, the writer'
understanding of the rules of the
University is, that a man has a
right to leave the class room when
ever he chooses, provided he does
not disturb the rest of the class in
doing-so, and if he stays too long,
the professor can simply mark him
absent and report him to the Presi
dent. Abuse is unnecessary and
uncalled for under any circumstan
ces, and is always demoralizing to
And yet order must be mantained.
To do this, rigid discipline must be
enforced. Indeed, so rigid is the
discipline (?) in some departments
that a man can't even smile at the
numerous absurdly ridiculous things
that happen there without being
ordered to leave the class room.
That is order with a vengence.
What, pray, is to become of the
majority of us, when a man who
ahvays knows his lesson, ami
who was never known to mis
behave on class, is ordered out of
the room just because he laughs?
The writer would consider it a.
great lavor it some kind mend.
would tell him why it is that under
one professor a class is studious and
well behaved, and under another
professor the very same class is dis
orderly and careless about its les
sons? Why is it that, in the latter
case, nan or two-tniras or tne nour
at every recitation has to he taken
up lecturing the class about its
conduct both in the class room anil
out of it, and then at the end have
the class rewarded by informing
them that they know nothing; that
hey learn nothing in College except
bow to root in the mire; and finally
go out into the world greater ignor
amuses than when the entered Col-
e? How can a man help being
in iguoramsu wnen au ms ume
on class is taken up with something
entirely foreign to the lesson, and
nothing is said or done to encourage
lim to study?
Truly, "There is something rot
ten in Denmark , and the sooner
somebody finds the source of the
trouble,' the better it will he for all
