Whether we win in Richmond in
Thursday's foot ball game or not, yet
we have arecord of which we are just
ly proud and which we willingly com
pare with any other team in the South.
Too much praise cannot be given to
the coach, the captain and the men
themselves. Our brilliant record is
due to the hard, earnest and faithful
work of all combined. To them let
us say that the college appreciates
their effort and will henceforth swear
by the Team of '98, as we have in the
passed sworn by the team of '95.
"JVo dirty q laying xvas resorted
to on either side and the North Car
olina boys won the admiration oj
all by their gentlemanly behavior,
as zvell as by their superb playing" .
We are. proud of the victories
won by our team in the south. But
no victories however glorious could
swell our hearts with as much pride
for our representatives, as such ex
pressions as the above quotation
from the Macon Telegraph.
Whether in victory or defeat
North Carolina has always upheld
her reputation for clean sport and
gentlemanly conduct and that we
prize more than all victories.
Victories won in another way are
disgraces, not honors; and defeat
sustained in the North Carolina
manner may be honors not disgra
It is gratifying to us to see the large
number of our young alumni playing
active parts in the public life of North
Carolina. University men have a great
advantage over all others that they
are not slow to seize. They are bound
to forge to the front. Especially is
this true of them as teachers. The
most prominent teachers in the state
are University men and so with the
most promising young teachers.
They are doing good work arid then-
lives are showing the strength and
power of the training at the alma
At the close of an eventful foot ball
season and while singing the praise of
the men on the 'Varsity, let us not
forget that other team of self-sacrific
ing heroes known by the rather en
viable name of "scrubs" And let
us say here that those men who take
up their time day after day, accept
bruises and knocks from stronger and
better trained men in order to develop
. the 1 Varsity show a spirit of self-sac
rifice and deserve a better name than
"Scrubs". They are not scrubs. "We
associate the name with worthless
things. These men are not worthless
These eleven men who bear that name
do more to make the 'Varsity team
worthy of alma mater than the entire
college, captain and coach combined
Let us then not forget Capt, Martin
and his team in our hours of triumph.
But rather let us all join hands in
making it an honor worthy of the best

Coach Reynolds has been with us two
years. At the end of these two years
we arc able and willing to say that j
Reynolds is the best coach ever at the
University. We trust that the '99
team will be so fortunate as to secure
his services. i
We are very glad to learn that the
University is to have a number of
preachers this year, ; following the
plan adopted last ; year of having
one good preacher from the state to
come each month and spend a week.
The following men have already
been chosen: Rev. P. H. Hoge of
Wilmington for t';e week December

The '98 foot ball season is dra

there has been complaint among the
southern colleges at the 'difficulty of
arranging good schedules. . We be-

that the managers waited till the
season opened to begin their cor
respondence with other managers.
Now let us talje warning from this

When the Carolina boys were return

boys who had to wait three hours at
