heel: AR X4 I Vol. 13, UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAM HILL, K. C, WEDNESDAY. MARCH 1. 1905. So. 18. OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. mJl Sm - JilL 11 Baseball. Baseball is now taking its place at the head of the Spring athletics aud all of the studenis want to see the candidates for the team get on the diamond once a;ain, For the past two weeks Captain Cheshire and Coach Lawson have had the in field candidates practicing- in the new gymnasium every afternoon from two to four o'clock and conse quently the men are in pretty good physical condition already. The .first outdoor practice this season was held Saturday after noon on the old athletic held back of the new gymnasium, where the men were practiced in catching- flies more than anything else. It will probably be two weeks before the regular diamond will be tit for use because the wet weather of jFebruary has put it in a bad condi tion. The sun and wind which we fare now blessed with bids fair to fput it in playing condition soon. The first two games which were to have been played with Bingham land Guilford at. Chapel Hill are fcancelled because the men were irather late in getting mLo their ogs this year and no slack chances bill be taken. , Consequently the M first game played will be with Oak Ridge Institute at Chapel Hill on March 25. Of course this will be a victory for us but not an easy one )ecause Oak Ridge this year has a Jjully good team. Cook, the third lasenian, and several old ringers Ere still with them and they will lii os t nrobablv give us a shot for ur money. The second game played will be .vith Wake Forest at Chapel Hill and this game will most likely be a lot one, for Wake Forest is said to liave a smooth playing set of boys. :U any rate, we feel sure of victory. Just at present we are all won dering what kind of a team Caroli na is going to put on the diamond his season. From the present in- icatious she will have one of the strongest teams she has had within he past years. With Dr. Lawson ts coach and John Cheshire as cap-. ain there is no reason why Caroli fa should not have a good nine, be-. fause there are plenty of good cau- idates for the team. Dr. Lawson is an alumnus of this f niversity. He is generally con idered to be the best pitcher Caro ina ever had, and, after leaving fere, he was with one of the great Northern baseball leagues for some ime. This makes Cheshire's fourth ear on the team aud he has proven fimself to be one of the best college pill players in the 'South. We feel ure that he will make a worthy eader. Plenty of good men have present d themselves for the positions on he team and Coach Lawsotf is do- Rr everything in his power to de- op them from the verA' start. fW)iur thp candidates are:! Sitton. Winston, Stem, Noble, Worth, heslure, Carter, Gudger, Taylor, Thompson, Hopgood, Barry, Gat lin, James, Patterson, Winboru, Rogers, Harris, Emerson, Jones, Weaver, Moore, and Smith. The Trolley Line. The indications are that there will be no trolley line in Chapel Hill soon. There is a deal of op position to the plan proposed by Mr. Wright of Durh'am and men tioned in these columns- recently. Professor Williams and Professor Noble and a number of villagers went to Raleigh Monday to argue the question before the legislative committee. A quorum of the com mittee could not be obtained how ever. .Professor Noble was to favor the Wright ulan and Professor Williams to oppose it. The latter objects to giving the Southern per mission to discontinue its trains when tire car line is completed. He wants both. The railroad peo ple say they are running the Chapel Hill train now at a loss. The Southern is bound by its charter contract to run the train. Its freight connections are considered better than any that could be made by the trolley line; hence the South ern would haul the freight. The passenger traffic then would be the only part the new line would get. If the passenger and freight traffic together cannot support one road, they certainly cannot, taken separ ately, support two. So we cannot have two; we must have the South ern; and that leaves the trolley line out of the question. ?.Ir. C.cTfey's Lectures. Mr. George Nelson Coffey, of the class of 1900, who is in charge of the Soil Survey of the U. S. De partment of Agriculture, was de tailed by the Bureau of Soils to give a course in nis specialty in connection with the work of the Department of Geology during the month -of February. Mr. Coffey received his training here and was formerly assistant in geology. His course has been taken with much profit by an earnest elass of a doz. en or more, and ivir. Volley lias shown himself a master-teacher as well as a soil expert. He is one of her sons of whom the University of North Carolina is justly proud. The GeorRla Debaters. Messrs. C. C. Barnhardt, from the Di. and EI. S. Lewis, from the Phi, have been selected as the Georgia debaters. Ihese gentle men have been very prominent in our debating life, both of them be ing- Commencement debaters last m i i , year. rne. preliminary speecnes showed that they have the question well in hand, and that they know row to present it. Carolina will be worthily represented. The ques tion to be debated is: "Resolved, That the best interests of the United States are opposed to our permaucnt occupation of any part of the Eastern Hemisphere except for coaling stations." A New League Proposed. The following item, which is o some interest, is taken from th Times-Despatch. As to tne pro Dosition it brings uo. we are in formed that nothing definite ha been said or done. - "The recent announcement that Georgetown and Virginia have prac tically settled their athletic differ ences, coming-, as it does, upon th heels of Virginia's withdrawal from the Virginia Intercollegiate Ath letic Association, points toward the organization of an 'association among the stronger institutions o this section of the South. At al events, this looks to be the most practical solution of the present condition of affairs. "Both from a geographical stand point and for the welfare of athlet ics, such an organization seems necessary. A dividing line is al ready closely drawn between the stronger athletic teams of this sec . iit 'fit .i rr t tion ana ttiose rartner soutn. ims is illustrated by the fact that in estimating the strength of the Southern teams, the records of the teams in this section are not given the same consideration by either Northern or Southern writers as those of the teams composing the Southern Intercollegiate Associa tion. ... "This gap has existed since the formation of the Southern Associa tion some years ago. The territory embraced is a large -one, and com prises a great many colleges, but there are few teams which stand out preeminently. Consequently it seems desirous that the leaders should get together and formulate an organization, under equitable playing rules, such as prevail among the larger Eastern institutions. "An association composed of Georgetown, North Carolina, Vir ginia and the Virginia Polyttchnic Institute, for instance, would be formidable one, and would at once demand recognition in the collegre world. This "Big Four" of the Southeast would be to its section what Yale, Princeton, Harvard and Pennsylvania are to the East; Mich igan, Chicago, Minnesota and Wis consin to the West, and what Van derbilt, Sewanee, Clem on and Au burn are to the far South. "A strong, well conducted or ganization, wi th proper eligibility rules, would unite these institutions on a satisfactory basis and foster pure athletics among those where the greatest amount of rivalry al ready exists. "This organization should in no way interfere with the present Vir ginia Intercollegiate Athletic Asso ciation and with the good it is do- ing. February German.

A New Book by Dr. Raper. The Macmillan Company of New York and -London have asked Dr. Raper to write an elementary text ook on economics. Dr. Raper has xccepted the offer, and it is proba- )le that the book will be finished by the end of the year. The title ot the book will be "Economics for ligh. Schools; the Principles of Weal th and Wei fare. ' ' T he Mac- millan Company will push the in troduction and sale of this book specially in the Southern high schools. Norfolk's Concession. Norfolk has amended her Virgin i proposition, and offers to pay the xpenses of Carolina's football team as well as Virginia s to .orloiK next fall. Carolina had agreed to day Virginia before this concession ... . r ... : :.. was made, and tne reason 101 n not quite clear. It is not iniproba- )le that the Norfolk people realized hat the student body here would not stand for such treatment as she irst proposed for us.
