VOL. 18 , UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CIIAI'KL HILL, N. C, SATURDAY, FEStnO-'- ' " NO. 26 OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE UNIVERSITY OK NORTH CAROLINA ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 40 TAKE BASEBALL PLEDGE WEATHER CONDITIONS PRO HIBIT OUTDOOR EXERCISE Real Activity Begias Next Week Baseball thrives but poorly under the reign of King Mud. Most of the players had rather take their bath in the gym than paddle an imaginary gondola around a diamond-shaped pool. Wading and baseball don't go hand in hand. Sliding in home might splash water on the catcher. Mud-slinging is not pleasant to say the least. Moreover a baseball can't swim. Under the ideal condition sug gested above it is not wonderful that the team has made little progress since last issue. But despite nasty weather some forty odd fellows signed the pledge Wednesday, and many have signed up every evening since. Each position is being besieg'ed by numbers of can didates, and as soon as the sun brings his smiling face from behind the dark clouds, the baseball diamond will be alive again. This week's inactivity will serve to increase next week's work. Every evening of training from now on is that much gained. The work of moulding a team out of raw material involves a considerable time element. This fact should be. appreciated by the candidates as well as by the coach; and tney "should make it a point to be promt and regular in their attandence (Continued on fourth pagu.) "Y. Y."

RIBBONS AND SUPPLIES FOR ALL TYPEWRITERS Editorial and Sketch Department a New Feature , The Yackety Yack .'for 1910 will be ready for distribution sometime be tween the "fifteenth and twentieth -of April, according- to the word of the ed itor in chief of that worthy University annual. It must be remembered in this connection, however, that the ed itor in chief will hold the J. P, Bell Publishing- Company, of Lynchburg, Va., responsible for this statement, provided the Yackety Yack fails to ap pear on the date promised. " The Yackety Yack this year will be dedicated to Joshua Walker Gore, who was a professor in the University of North Carolina nearly twenty-six years and who died in the spring- of nineteen hundred eight. The sketch of Prof. Gore is by Prof Collier Cobb. The beard of editors of the Yackety Yack is laboring for one accomplish ment if nothing else this year, namely, that of placing the Yackety Yack first instead of third among the list of col lege annuals of the United Slates. Last year the Yackety Yack was plac ed only below the Navy annual, and the annual of a western institution. The makeup of the Yackety Yack, typographically, will follow all the dic tates of simplicity, the charm of which surpasses in effect all efforts at bombas tic display. The cover will be plain blue cowhide with extension edges all around. The same cover design, a drawing of the South building. Old East and West buildings and well, of last year will be used. A large Uni versity seal will be at the bottom. The lettering on the cover will be: "Yack ety Yack, 1910", and this will be printed in dark blue. The paper will be enameled, and of lilac tint. Each page will have a border, the design of which will be appropriate to the Stale of North Carolina. All pictures will be made from half tone cuts. These cuts will be made from solio prints, and the re suit will be the best that can be secured. The size of the Yackety Yack will be about the same as that of last year. There will be four hundred pages from cover to cover, three hundred and sixty of which will be reading matter. The literary make-up will be a fea ture. Dr. Battle will furnish a short history of the University. Sketches of famous University characters will be furnished by others. An endeavor will be made to give a sketch of the I life, and the characteristics of horny handed Henry, the guardian of the bell and the chief director of the movements of the University. Many poems and sketches have been secured. This year will be added editorial and sketch de partments, the material for which may be supplied by anybody. The artistic make-up will surpass precedent. Pictures and drawings of everything and of everybody will adorn every page. The art committee has spared no effort to secure pictures not only of every class, but of. every class banquet, of every organization, literary, fraternal, county or athletic, and of all familiar scenes in Orange county. Some changes have been suggested Wl LLIAM CAMERON DEAD CHAPEL FOR THE PAST WEEK STRICKEN BY PARALYSIS IN LEFT SIDE Dies Suddenly While on a Brief Vacation The announcement of the death of William Cameron from paralysis at his home in Hillsboro on Thursday morn ing at 6 o'clock brought a shock lo stu dents here. On Wednesday Dr. Hen derson received a long-distance phone message saying that Cameron had been stricken by paralysis in his right side and there was no hope for his recovery. Thursday another message came that the boy2 was dead. William Cameron was the eighteen year old son of Mr. Allen Cameron, a prominent cotton mill man of Hillsbo ro. He is survived by his father and sister, Miss Annie Cameron. His aunt, Miss Rc-becca Cameroti, is an editor of the Messenger of Hope, issued by the Thompson Orphanage. The 'deceased left Chapel Hill the day aftr examinations closed in per fect health for a few days vacation at his home. He was a member of the Freshmm Class and a communicant of the Episcopal church. which seem very acceptable to the bus iness managers and to the editors. It is not at all improbable that the board of editors will adopt some of these changes at its next meeting. Two of the changes are seriously being consid ered. For instance, it has been sug gested that individual pictures of the freshman take the space usually'reserv ed for the seniors. This will relieve the seniors of the heavy cost of inser tion. There are more freshmen than seniors, and the charges resulting from their pictures will help the business managers. Again.it has been sug. gested that individual pictures of the sophomores be made, too; and that these be distributed freely among the advertisements. By so doing the value of the advertisements will be increased immensely and will give prospective advertisers additional incentive for buying space. As was said before everybody will be "dragged" in. And as they are drag ged in they will be given a scratch here and a knock there to make them remember the experience. The drag ging will include everyone from the smallest nigger in Chapel Hill to the president of the institution, and the board wishes to make it known once and for all, here and now, that it will not be responsible for explosion cf ker osene, flooding by water, shake-up by earthquake, or destruction by fire, and wishes notice to be taken accordingly. In testimony whereof, and of their sincerity, the members , of the Yackety Yack board for 1910 give their signa tures: T. J, McManis, editor in chief; D. B. Sloan, literary editor; K. S. Tan ner, art; F. Witherington, statistics; John Boushall, organizations; John Tillett, athletics; B. L. Fentress, pho tographs; Cy. Thompson, humor; E. Jones, special editor. Backing up this aggregation are C. B. Ruffin and L. deK. Belden, business managers, and they guarantee by the way that every man will get his book when he has shucked out the proper coin. HOW THE CLASSES ARE CATALOGUED Dr. Battle Describes Second Meet ing of University Trustees Chapel exercises on Monday morning were conducted by Dr. Venable. The President in a short talk explained the new class grading, and set forth the cause that had made a change necessa ry. According to the new system a Junior, to be such, must have but thirty-six hours before him; a Senior but eighteen. The President said the change had been inaugurated primari ly to relieve the man with an impossi ble number of hours from the humilia tion of not graduating with his class. On Tuesday the services at Chapel were conducted by Mr. Barnett. Dr. Battle spoke on the early history of the University. After inviting the de cent use by the students of the walkss and paths in Battle's Park, the speaker took up his subject at the point where he stopped his talks last fall. In a manner interesting and entertaining to all, Dr. Battle '. followed the course of the University's history through the second meeting of the board of trus tees. Just here the ringing of the bell interrupted the speaker, and he was compelled to stop his talk until Wed nesday. Dr. Battle's talk on Wednesday was chiefly about the life of Gov. Smith, a man whose life toward its close was very sad and bitter. Gov. Smith was (Continittid on fourth page. ) The Harris Woollen Co.
