PLAYERS TO BE NUMBERED
Members of Both Teams Will
Wear Numbers in Thanks
The players on both sides will
be numbered in the Carolina-Vir
ginia game. This will be for
the benefit of the spectators. The
numbers;. ten inches square, will
be sewed on the hacks of the pla y
ers' jerseys. Each leant will be
gin with number one and run up
consecutively as far as necessary.
The only difference in the num
bers will be that each set will be
in the colors of the college.
While other colleges have had
their pi a vers numbered in the big
games, this is the first time Car
olina has tried the experiment.

PLAYERS READY FOR GAME
Carolina's Prize Team is De
termined to Win Big
The all-powerful team winch
is destined to vanquish the long
victorious Virginia eleven left
Chapel Hill this afternoon at five
o'clock ior the big clash on
Thanksgiving. These thirty
strong representatives of Caro
lina will go by way of Durham
and Raleigh and will arrive in
Richmond Wednesday morning,
making the Jefferson Hotel their
headquarters. Sometime during
the day they will practice on the
Broad Street Field where the
game is to be played, on Thurs
day. The general condition of the
men has improved very much in
the last week and the team work
has shown marked improvement.
This is partially due to the pres
ence of Coaches Pendleton and
Emmons, who arrived on the
Hill last week. Pendleton, who
has been assisting Cunningham
with the Halves and Full, hasex
pliiiend many of the plays used
by Virginia this year and coach
ed them in breaking these up.
Emmons has been devoting his
time to Quarter. Tom Wilson
will meet the team in Richmond,
and will accompany them to the
Cowell has been out of the
game a couple of days this week
with a slight attack of tonsilitis
but was in the scrimmmage
Thursday for a short time and
' ready for hard practice Saturday.
Ramsay was not in action Wed-
nesday since Bluetenthal thought
he needed a rest. Foust and Gay
have had a hard fight for Right
Tackle. The chances are that
the former will start the game on
Thanksgiving. Winston was
suffering from minor injuries
Thursday but Will be in good
condition for the contest with
Virginia.. Bridges and Allen
have had it nip and tuck for
Quarter. The chances are that
the former will begin the game
but rboth will probably have a
chance beore the last quarter is
up. Captain Tayloe is in prime
condition and is playing a fine
game. Fuller has nearly recover
ed from injuries received in the
Vanderbilt game and is ready to

THE STATE SENTIMENT
What the Leading State Pa
pers Think ot Carolina's
The following clippings were
taken from State papers of the
last week's issue and will give
some idea concerning the senti
ment of the people over the State
about the big game in Richmond
Thursday. The Greensboro
News says: "There is more in
terest in North Carolina over the
game there ever was before.. ..
Governor Craig and President
Graham will both be there. The
team is getting back the pep and
fighting spirit that it had earlier
in the season."
The following sentences were
taken from an article in the Char
lotte Daily Observer which was
written by a student at Virginia.
"For the first time since 1905 the
University of North Carolina has
placed in the field a football team
which Virginia truly fears."
"It (the N. C; team) is prob
ably the most versatile aggrega
tion that has represented the
Chapel Hill institution since 1892.
It is well-conditioned, well-bal-lanced,
The Charlotte Observer again
says, "North Carolina is being
given a close run by Tennessee
for the honor of scoring the most
points in football this season."
Carolina has scored 356 to her
opponents 32, while Tennessee
has scored 350 to her opponents
Coach; Simmons of Charlotte,
who is something of an expert on
football, picked six Carolina men
and five A. & M. men for an all
Carolina team. The Carolina
men are Tayloe, Tandy, Home
wood, Winston, Jones F., and
Ramsay. Quoting again, "Car-

olina's backfield is heavier by
several pounds than the Old Do
minion bacKfield. . . Taking every,
thing into consideration it would
seem that the odds for Winning
should be Carolina's .... It looks
as if it is entirely up to the
coaching staff to produce the or
ganized machine, and the players
to produce the fight in order to
bring home the bacon." "It is
expected that 5,000 North Caro
linians will witness the game.
Mass Meeting Tuesday Night
.There will be a big mass meet
ing Tuesday night in Chapel to
celebrate duly the coming game
with Virginia. Every man in
college will be there with the
old college spirit, the spirit that
wins the determination not to
be defeated. Members of the
Faculty will make appropriate
speeches, and there will be lively
renditions of college songs and
yells. As before said, everybody
will be there.
GO TO IT, CAROLINA
The Order of Gimghouls will
beat home to the Faculty and
students at an informal dance at
their lodge Friday December 3,
at four o'clock.

A Note is Received from a Tar Heel
Enthusiast in ' Virginia.
Chapel Hill, N. C.
I am a Tar Heel
girl, but have been living in
Richmond for several years.
Nevertheless, the tar is still thick
on my heels. You have disap
pointed me so many times by not
winning the game for my dear
"Old State." I go out on Broad
Street with my colors, blue and
white, flying high, only to have
them torn down in tlfe end.
Now, boys, I am counting on yen
this time. Please donot fail me
I just want you to give the tin'
versity of Virginia a good fl
ging. I was so delighted wU
you beat the Medical College,
just screamed for joy. One -the
hoys didn't show his face 1
I am a High School girl, av
hope to be among the rooters i
North Carolina on Thanksgivi
Day. I would like to meet ev
one of the boys, but if .you a
appoint me, I shall run hoi.,
and perhaps, smile on the V.
