HEEL CAROLINA TAKES THE FIRST Defeats Swathmore in an In teresting Game by a Score of 3 to 0 WOODS HOLDS SWARTHMORE TO ONE HIT Victory Due to Schaefer's Wildness Combined With the Effective Use of the Squeeze Play by the Members of the Varsity Carolina 3, Swathmore 0 was the result of a unsensational but interesting game last Wednesday. The absolute inability of the Northerners to hit Woods was chiefly responsible for their de feat. From the time he struck out three men in succession in the first round of the mix-up un til he fanned the last man in the ninth, Woods had Swar hmore completely at his mercy. One lit tle single in the seventh after two men were down was everything in the way of hits which the vis itors were able to secure. The big boy made Swarthmore look fut ny at the plate. Eleven times his curves and drops caused the Swarthmore batters to die gently but firmly at the plate. In the ninth with a man on and no one out he fanned (Jeig, whose chief title to fame is his ability to hit home runs. Carolina, likewise, seemed un able to find what appeared to be Schaefer's rather easy offerings until the eighth. Only one hit had been gathered in up to that time. But in the eighth Irby and Page got singles apiece, and Swink landed on one for three bases. The victory was due not to Carolina's ! hitting but to Schaefer's wildness and the ef fective use of the squeeze play. Both teams fielded well. The infield work of the visitors was superb. Every man of the in field handled what came to htm perfectly. Weaver at second, and Gilchrist, at third, worked es pecially well. For Carolina, Ed' ward's work at third was the feature of the e-ame. Three times he handled balls from Geig's stick without erring. Geig's terrific drive in the sixth dropped from his glove, but he recovered in time to catch the runner at first. Young made a pretty catch of a difficult fly in tett. The first score came in the second inning, Young walked, stole second and third, and scored on Whitaker's sacrifice. In the sixth Swink walked, and scored on two perf act bunts by Page and SToung. In the eighth Edwards, first up, walked but was thrown out on an attempted steal. Irby Angled. Swink drove one be tween left and center for three bases. Irby was called out for cutting second, but Swink, with out stopping, came home on a bad throw in. Page singled; Young got his third base on balls' Whitaker filled the bases w'th another base on balls: but Bailey fouled out to the catcher. In the third for Swarthmore Gilchrist walked, Thomas was safe on Woods' error; Gilchrist Continued on third pg COLLEGE PAPERS UNITED Southern College Newspapers aud Magazines to Form an Associa tion !

HISTORICAL SO CIETY MEETS Interesting Paper of Dr. Hamilton on "The Union League in N. C" Read by Dr. ' Wagstaff ' - ' At the meeting of the Histori cal Society in Chemistry Hall Monday night, Professor Wag staff read a very interesting paper on "The Union League in North Carolina." The paper was pre pared by Dr. Hamilton and is a chapter in the book he is writing on the "Reconstruction in North Carolina". Of the inside work ings of the League in this and other states, very little is known generally, because of the secrecy of the organization. Dr. Hamil ton has opened up a hitherto closed chapter in the history of the re construction by compiling, after diligent research the facts and actions of this League. The Union League was formed in the North in the early sixties and soon became national in its scope. It followed the Union army Soutn and became very ac tive in North Carolina, esbecially in the central and eastern part of the State. The League under took the control of the negroes and was itself controlled by car petbaggers. The national con stitution w as very elaborate, but the work of each subordinate council was entire y local. The first president in North Carolina was Judge A. W. Tourgee, who was followed in turn by Holdett, later governor, and Gen. N. S. Littlefield, although Governor Holden was thought to be presi dent, even by the members, until 1870. The sign of the order was four L's, standing for "Liberty, Lincoln, Loyalty, and League." The membership of the league consisted of negroes and Republi cans and meetings were held at night in school houses and churches. Negroes were often forced to join and, having become members, were completely capti vated by the power and attention given them. As a result of this and of literature distributed by the league, they were encouraged in committing all kinds of crimes, as burning barns, stealing prop erty, and sometimes even murder ing. The league would release its members from jail and Govern or Holdon frequently pardoned them when sentenced. There were many instances of threats and notices posted on courthouse doors against white citizens, who worked against the league. One threat, which was quoted, for Tom Green was posted on the courthouse door in Hillsboro. The continued outrages and crimes committed by members of the. league resulted in what is to day the "Solid South." The re markable self-restraint practiced so long by the Southern men was finally broken. The activities of the - Union League were stopped at last by the appearance of the Ku Klux Klan.

Errors at inopportune times were the main reasons - why Swarthmore was able to turn the tables on Carolina in the second game of the series by the score of 3 to 2. Errors helped Swarth more to win, and the inability of Carolina's batters to land safely on Greist, kept Carolina from winning. From the bleachers Greist's offerings appeared easy, but the bleachers are a good deal different from the batter's box. Not until the last half of the sixth, when Leak went in to bat for Woods, did the team get the ghost of a hit. Young and Whitaker due to Greist's kind ness in ; giving them free passes got on. Bailey flied out to left who muffed the ball, and as a re sult was able to catch Young at third. Then Jim Leak, sent in as oinch hitter, set the rooters wild with a perfect single be tween center and right. This was the only real chance Carolina had to cheer. The game started with Woods ag-ain on the mound. He seemed not to have warmed up enough, or at least was unable to keep his offerings out of the groove. At anv rate Darbrow. who fanned ... once the day before, and Tarble who went and did likewise twice, landed on him for a double and triple respectively. Naturally one run was marked up on the wrong side. This was the only earned run of the game. The other two were pure gifts. Errors by Geig and Lucas gave Carolina one in the third. The e-ame drag-gred along; until the KJ V w fifth with only Page's splendid running catch in center to relieve the monotony. In the fifth Dar- brow cot on bv a hit of the scratchest kind, stole second, went to third on Baker's out. and scored on Young's muff of Tar ble's easy fly. Carolina scored again in the sixth on passes fol lowed by Leak's hit. Swarth more came back with the even ing run in the same inning. Lucas was on by Irby's wild throw. Weaver sacrificed, and Gilchrist drove Lucas in with a single. Carolina threatened to rally in the eighth and ninth. Greist be gan to lose his control. He issued a pass in the eighth after two were down. With three balls on Bailey, Greist was substituted by Tarble. The latter promptly finished passing Bailey. All Lanier could do, however, was to go out on a fly to right. In the ninth Hanes fanned, Edwards went out short to first, Irby singled, Swink walked, Page fanned, and the agony was ended.

Strong: Breaks Pole Vault Record. Cobb, Patterson and Cartmell Win in an Exciting Relay. : ; ; The Sophomore class had things its own' way in the inter class track meet held Saturday the final score standing: Sophs 45, Freshmen 32, Juniors 21, Seniors 10. The meet was an all round success, particularly from the point of view of the work done. One University record was broken. George Strong, '14, pole vaulted 10 feet 4, which is 4 inches better than Parsley's old record. Considering the fact that no Varsity men were entered, the other times and distances were very promising. The individual star of the meet was undoubtedly Philip Woolcott of the Freshman class. The quality and versatility of his work mark him as one of the most promising track athletes Carolina has had in a long time. He scored 20 out of the 32 points made by the freshmen, capturing both ! jumps and both hurdles and tying 1 for third place in the pole vault; ' In neither the jumps nor the hurdles did he have to extend himself to win. Had he been pushed, it is probable several records would have fallen. Wool cott will be heard from later. ' B. C. Parker's shot put of 36 feet 6 inches and Mason's 100 in 10 1-5 second stand out as ster 1 i n g performances. Parker's work is already much better than any done here last year, and in view of the short practice he has had, great things may be ex pected of him. Mason took both the sprints, closely foilowrd in each case by Sears. ' The Sophs scored heavily in the half mile and the mile, win ning all places in both these events. The former furnished an exciting finish, Ransom and Whiting fighting it out all down the straight-away, Ranson final ly winning. The Sophs had more men entered in the meet and pre sented a better balanced team. They scored in every event save the shot put. , , ; The climax of the meet . was the relay race between teams made up of Varsity stars and Coach Cartmell. It was the first time Cartmell had raced on the local track, and consequently the interest was keen. The teams were: Collier Cobb, Jr., E. V. Patterson, Nat J. Cartmell; and M. E. Blalock, Jr., R. C. Spence, W. E. Wakeley. Cobb and Bla lock, ran one lap with Blalock leading by about 12 yards. Pat terson and Spence ran two laps, and at the end the distance be tween them had been shortened to 6 yards. Wakeley and Cart- Continued on fourth pajte
