THE TAR HEEL Weather Report: Honest, Rhody, Weather Report:' It's snowing this time OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA vol. 22 UNIVERSITY OF. NORTH. CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, THURSDAY. MARCH 12, 1914 NO. 21 TEAM IS READY FOR OPENING GAME In Spite of All Exam Mis fortunes a Strong Team in Si PROBABLE LINE UP FOR FRIDAY PICKED. With the first game dead ahead Earl Mack is steering his team head on with all steam on. Un less breakers interfere there will be a collision tomorrow and either Oak Ridge or Carolina will see Davy Jones' locker before the week is out. The baseball fiends have had a taste of spring- sandwiched be tween layers of snow, and if the present taste will 'continue long enough to make a full meal, Car olina will sec her team in fine fighting trim before many days have oast. The diamond has been rcpolished, and the ground ers no longer jump up suddenly to meet you. Phoebe will have fewer ridges to mount as he lopes through the right garden. The team is on solid ground and is fast developing. For the last week a game has been started adout 3:00 every evening, and with fresh men be ing continually interchanged in the different positions,evcry even in ir has riven about two and a half hours .continual work-out. The results have given Coach a fair line on his men, although as yet no definite selection can be made; for it takes a full season to pick a team. General Lee is bringing around a pitching staff and in the prac tice games played good form has already been show. Bun Ilearuc, of the New York team, has been helping out with his left. To pick from we have Williams, Watktns, Johnson, S b l e 1 (I s Foust, Craven, and even more We .are strong on catchers, too Hart, Woodall, Knowles, Bur nette, Love, and Angel are out This list gives us high promises for a strong battery for the "eiv tire season. '"'.''' In the infield we have Captain Bailey on 2nd, Patterson or Nor- ris for first, Rousseau, Royster, or Polk for short. Lewis or Laughran probably on 3rd. In the outfield Johnson, Bailey, Turbybill, Long, Litchfield, and others are showing up in great style. Again, the hitting ability of the team cannot be determined. Straight drives, flies out of the fielders, reach, and well placed grounders have , been much in evidence, and since Oak Ridge is said to be strong in her batteries, we .may well look lorward good' test of the ability of teams tomorrow. We cannot say with any degree o certainty CLASS TRACK MEET NEXT ej?NI0RS GATHER rnn i i ot n a MAiirT Coach Carlmpll Savs Ho libs rlllvLilJl DHlUfil Em Green c i i . ouccviico iiueiCMiun dim Practical President Leach Presided. A man told Coach Nat the other day that he would like to come out on the track and run, but was afraid he would be in the way Coach immediately suspended his other engagements for ten minutes and tried to impress on the young- student the eternal fact that the track runs around the Smith Buildingfor no other purpose than to be run on, and that this Uni versity can't run unless a big crowd from every class comes out and run. On March 28 two weeks from now the class meet will be held Every man, Senior or Fresh man or in between, should have a hand in this. If you think there is nobody else in college quite as bow-legged, skinny-ribbed, and short-winded as you, come out from now until class day and see how many other short-winded fel lows you can beat. Coach says the greener you come, the better he will like you. The Fresh and Soph classes have not yet turned out their reasonable number of candidates. Coach is glad of every 'opportunity to get hold of a man who never ran before. And ever)' man who goes to him will find the hour he spends on the track the best hour of the day. Remember this: The Varsity men are not allowed to enter the class contest. You will be up against men no more trained than yourself. Come out and beat them. If you dr n't know the way to the track, ask your class mana ger or any of the old track men. They will be glad to show you. The Varsity season opens on April 4th., when we meet Wake Forest here. The team will take trips to Raleigh, Blacksburg. Va. (V. P. I.), and Baltimore (South Atlantic meet). Out of the class teams must come new A STRONG CROUP OF SPEAKERS HEARD. On Friday night the grand ok 1914 assembled at the Inn for the last and bestjjbanquet of its un dergraduate days. The long tables were appropriately with eignt paiaie-gratitying courses and headed by those Princess of College Speakers, Prof., Williams Prof. Stacy and Mr. Moss. President Uscar L,each, as Toastmaster, turned a genial light upon the company from the beginning, and took advantage of the well-fed good nature of the class to tickle its vanity continu ally. The occasion was marked by a high order of good feeling associated with a serious consid eration of the position of Senior life. , , ; "We need," said Oscar Leach in his opening remarks, "a class bulletin to keep each one of us in touch with the progress of all We might expect to read there five years from now news of the greatest interest, for instance, that Benjamin Franklin Aycock had been married to the beautifu and accomplished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. So-and-so; or that Mr. Troy Isaiah Jones had as sumed his duties as Editor of Life." , The first speaker called on was Lenoir Chambers. Of course that srentleuian protested that we ought noi to expect him to make a speech. And then he turned the light on present day athletics especially in our own State. "What we need, he said is a spirit of high ideals in athletics. And the irood part about this is that if we are clean and right in athletics we will carry this same Varsity sP'ri i"0 every part of our life." material. In particular a broad 1 jumper is needed.
