To the Editor:
In The Tar Heel, of January
28th was a card relating" to a "ru
mor around the campus that the
Advisory Committee has been warn
ed not to offer more than $650 and
expenses for a foot ball coach."
This is a mistake. The committe
has not been warned but only sug
gested to offer $750 This amount
is not the limit but only a "starter."
The article says also that "we
positively 'cannot get a good man for
so small a salaiw." Coach Olcott
was paid only $600 and expenses
the first year.
So far as putting- ourselves in
the class with minor colleges and
prep schools by offering 650, we
are already below the class of minor
colleges in the subscription 'line.
M. I., whom we consider a
minor college, has only 280 students
while we have over 600, gets $1,400
in subscriptions, while we get $250.
Now if we must "put out our
money and get a first class man"
we- have first got to get the money.
We offered Coach Olcott $900 this
year without expenses and luckily
were able to pay it on account of
tickets to the Virginia game.
If we had not been able to get it
from the yames where was it coming-
from? This "one man Who
says no" with the three other mem
bers of the Faculty who are on the
Advisory Committe would have had
to dig" down in their pockets and
pay it. So it seems to me that if
they haven't the rig"ht to suggest
the salary of the coach then tell ma
Instead of raising- our voices for
what we think is right, let us raise
the money to get a good coach and
then we can name the salary.

Magazine Editors Entertained at
The Magazine editors were given
a most enjoyable reception Wednes
day evening, January 27, by Miss
Penelope Cobb at the home of her
brother, Professor Collier Cobb.
Professor Cobb is chairman of the
faculty committee on the Magazine,
and this happy method was taken
to bring about a closer relation
to one who brought the Magazine
to such a high standard not so many
years ago and those who at present
are working toward that same end.
The few hours were thoroug-hly en
joyed in the talkative game, Pit,
and not unnaturally, perhaps a
young lady bore off the prize. To
Miss Hume was given a box of
Huyler's, which she generously
meted out to the company, and after
a long and exhausting contest Mr.
Rankin finally won the consolation
prize, in the shape of a balloon,
which makes a noise when you
Those present were as follows:
Misses Bafringer, Charlottesville,
Va.; Alexander, Cobb, Hume and
Venable. The editors present were
Messrs. Dameron, Johnston, Mc
Lean, Graham, Harper and Ranking
Rev. Mr. M. D Hardin, of Char
lotte, preached the University ser
mon for January last Sunday even
ing. He spoke very interestingly.
His text was from John 18:37.
Mr. Hardin told the story of the
creation as the scientist understands
it. He gave the theory of the for
mation of the earth and the begin
ning of life upon it. How through
gradual evolution one animal be
came separated from the rest. The
animal is man. Man who was sep
arated from all other forms of life
and differing from them in that he
had a soul. '
"In broad terms, " said the
speaker, "the scientific and the
Biblical stories of , the creation are
the same. In it all there is one
purpose the development of man.
God must have had man in his idea
from the beginning. Step by step,
man has developed until he has be
come united to an unseen spirit
world, He yearns for light, for life,
Mr. Hardin then spoke of Christ
as a man who felt only the spiritual
and the divine upon his life; a man
who knew that his life was not an
accident. ; It was to fulfil God's
purpose in making a divine revela
tion of supreme love and truth;
the truth that man is a spiritual be
ins'", and,, destined to live forever;
that Christ is the controller and
maker of this world's destinies, and
is bringing it to completion. The
outlines of his plan of completion
are found in the Bible. Man was
born so that his life might be a part
of this plan. However, he may
throw himself athwart the plan, but
he doe not change it; he destroys
God is rational and employs him
self in things that are worthy of
his power. So ought man; other
wise life is a failure. It is a fail
ure if it ends in a race like India's,
or if it ends in a life of ease and
wealth, a life neglecting the soul
and the spiritual powers. Man's
life should fill a part of God's great
purpose; its chief end should be to
glorify Him. This is the only free
life- Freedom means the spontan
eous adjustment of one's self to law.
The editors and business mana
gers of the Yackety-Yack ask for
the hearty cooperation of all the
students and other friends of the
University. They will do their
part, but the editors cannot do all
the work. There is something for
every one to do won't you help the
board? The success of the annual
for 1904 depends, in a great meas
ure, upon the encouragement and
support that it receive, from those,
as it were, without.
Let all, therefore, show a special
interest in the book and manifest
that interest by contributing to the j
material for selection. The editors!
beg you not to be indifferent; indif
ference is one of the worst of handi
caps. Kindly remember that you
can help and whatever you do will
be as thoroughly appreciated as it.

The patriotism and loyalty of col
lege men, outside of a few cranks
are beyond question, but surely
those qualities were as evident in
the Civil War, when college athlet
ics were in their infancy, as at any
time since. Everything that tends
to the growth of strength, courage
and self command is to be encourag
ed; and we heartily believe in col
lege athletics But we don't be
lieve in that fierce, and sometimes
ungenerous rivalry, that mad desire
for victory, that spirit of pettifog
ging, that intemperate hullabaloo
over success, and that childish grief
after a defeat that show themselves
too often in intercollegiate athletics.
The college athlete has not learn fd
that external calm in victory and
defeat which is rightly regarded
as necessary. Where is this calm
when men boohoo like babies when
they are beaten? Where is the ex
ternal calm of the young maniacs
who celebrate an athletic victory
by defiling property or rioting in
the street? The college athletes
need external and internal calm.
They and the great mass of follow
ers need to set smaller store on vic
tory. We hope to see athletics
more generally diffused in the col
lege world instead of being sporad
ic and spotty.
