The First Game of the Season
Easily Won by Carolina.
Score 6 to 0.
The outcome of our game with
the William Bingham School, of
Mebane last Saturday, although we
won, as indeed was confidently ex
pected by all, is not at all encour
aging and not a little dissatisfaction
has been plainly expressed by the
supporters of the white and blue.
The prevalent opinion is, it seems,
that Carolina should have worsted
the visitors something like 10 or 15
to 0. And in our judgement this is
not an extravagant estimate. We
do not wish to be understood how
ever as advocating the principle that
we expect impossibilities of our
team, and it is trusted that this im
pression will not be created and
given credence; but every one
knows, and will not contend for one
moment, that Carolina played the
ball that she was capable of doing.
It is true that the visitors had a
fairly good team arid played splen
did ball, but when it is remembered
that they are not in our class and
that two of our runs were made by
costly errors, the reasonableness of
our critism, harsh though it may
seem, is clearly justified. If we
are to sustain our former" base ball
records we must play better and ball,
of this there can be no doubt.
The reason for our failue to run
up a large score against Bingham
is, not that our boys failed to do
neat fielding,, for as it is known the
infield work, especially that of
Holt at first and Graham at third,
was simply made to order, but be
cause they had not been accustomed
to batting left hand pitchers and
consequently they could not get
their eye on the ball. There is no
doubting the fact that the Bingham
twirler, though of mediocre ability,
struck Carolina like a "steam en
gine in trousers."
The rooting at the game, includ
ing the sonorious voices of Jack
Roundtree and Ham Irwin, is de
serving of the greatest praise
possible. During the whole game,
we believe, only three yells were
given and then with no life and
enthusiam. We must awake to
the realization of our position. Col
lege spirit must not be dormant.
We have a game to play that must
be won and if we don't have the
proper spirit behind our team, de
feat, rather than victory, will sure
ly be ours.
The erame in detail was as fol

sphere hard to Cheshire who throws
him out at first. Crawford makes
a beautiful drive which seems good

the air and Crawford sighs. Van
Esten hit three times at the curves
dispensed by Green and when the
last strike had been made Noble had
the ball. Graham was presented
