BLUE AND WHITE LOSES
Carolina Recieves a Terrible Blow
in Norfolk Saturday at the
Hands of Georgetown.
Score: 33 to 0.
Its brutal sport, this watching
a game of foot ball in such weather
as prevailed yesterday; but 2.000
people shivered, shook, trembled,
turned blue, purple and green and
did divers other thing's for three
hours in Lafayette Park to see
Georgetown defeat Carolina by
score of 33 to 0 yesterday:
? It was as clean a victory as was
ever won, ana superior piayingr,
both as a team and individually was
responsible for the result.
Georgetown simply outclassed
Carolina at every point of the game.
That is all there is to the story, but
while the score indicates that the
erame was one sided, it ; was far
from being uninteresting, and when
the final play had been made there
were practically as many people
within the big park as there were
when the whistle first sounded.
Carolina put up a wonderfully
'plucky game against overwhelming
odds and she deserves all the" credit
an undaunted ' team should receive
Reilly, of Georgetown, was the
bright, particular star of -the game.
In the latter part of the first half
he replaced Cromley at left half,
and from that moment he was in
every play. Three touch downs of
the six made by Georgetown are to
his credit, and many, a Carolina

Hart's run from Georgetown '
10-yard line to Carolina's 3-yard
line was the most sensational play
of the game, and only the speed
of Roberson kept him from making
the sjore that Martel achieved on
the next formation.
The ball was kept in Carolina's
territory practically the entire
game, and only on a few occasions
did the Blue and White team hold
the boys from up the Potomac for
Twice during the game Carolina
seemed to brush aside the almost
invulnerable rush line of the
Georgetown eleven and at those
times her sturdy hacks darted
through the narrowest of holes
and made gains running all the way
from 5 to 35 yards on quick plays
while the spell lasted.
The formation plays of George
town swept by the Carolina team
at times like a perfect whirlwind
and again, at other times, Carolina
would brace and nail the Blue and
Gray runners in their tracks.
It was a mud-horse game, and
this accounts for many of its gains
and losses, but considering the
slippery condition of the field the
few fumbles constitute a remark

The first conference of the Col
lege Y. M. C A. met
Friday evening, October 23, in
Chapel' Hill. This was the first
meeting of the kind ever held in
North Carolina. Dr. F. P Vena
ble in a brief and fitting speech
welcomed the Conference on behalf
of the University and town. The
speaker of the evening was Prof.
Durham, of Trinity College. His
subject was. "The Deepening of
the Spiritual Life." Some of the
things he said are: "In tne far per
spective of time one may set in the
gathering forces of history, a rest
less search for the throne of God,
and our gathering here to deepen
our spiritual life is but a continua
tion of that drama which began
long ago. Back of all things is the
same desire, the same cry, for the
way above the brute, blind forces,
where the human spirit may live
"In a certain way the word spir
ituality is the vaguest word in the
vocabulary. A great majority of
the. people misunderstand the term.
"I cannot define it. but I must
call your atteuaion to one wrong;
conception of it. In some way and
somehow Christianity was put in
the mould of Greek philosophy.
This philosophy was dual. It
made God and matter opposed to
each other. This lie got into
Christian theology and monaMti-
cism was the outgrowth of it. The
effect is that Christianity is a re-
ligion of some other sphere, that
we must go to some far awav place
to hnd God. A greater effect is
that our lives are split bv a exeat
veil. We see God throuerh this
veil. Nearly all sorrow, affliction
and lack of inspiration come from
"What then is the correct view?
The ability to feel and comprehend
the presence of God. That man is
spiritual who is able to lay his
hands upon God and feel the
sweep of the spirit through his life.
"Two things : are necessary.
One h to have the right idea
grounded into you, and the other is
to discipline it. There is no dis
tinction in space between God and
man. God underlies our lives.
He is the infinite worker of our
lives. The greatest Astronomer,
the greatest Physicist, the greatest
Farmer, who is he? God. All
life is God life. Spirituality is the
power to see and feel things as God
sees and feels them. We must have
in some sense the vision of God.
We do not look at the world in an
infinite way as He does. We give
ourselves to blind passion, He to the
beautiful vision of things.
"We must train ourselves to un
derstand the purpose of God. Our
lives have but little purpose. But
