VARSITY PLAYED NINETEEN
GAMES; WINS 8, LOSES
9, AND TIES 2
SCORES SEVENTY-THREE POINTS
Four Games Lost By One Run and
Three Games Go Over Nine Innings
Virginia Games Were Close
Carolina has won 8 games, lost
9 games, and tied 2 games.
This is the resume of North Caro
lina's champion baseball team that
closed its season Wednesday with a
2 to 1 victory over Trinity that
came in the twelfth inning when
"Lefty" Wilson crashed out a two
bagger and won his own game when
he was squeezed in with beautiful
sacrifices by Sweetman and Captain
Feimster. To the casual observer it
would seem that the Tar Heel aggre
gation had been in a slump, since
it has come to the end of the season
holding the little end of an 8 to 9
won-lost column, but upon looking at
the schedule it is a cinch that he
will change his mind. Carolina has
played nineteen games, and in these
games has scored 73 points to her
opponents 65. She has played nine
rames with colleges in the state and
has won seven of them, leaving her
the undisputed champion ot tne
state. One of these games was lost
by one lone tally, after it seemed
that we had things sewed up. lhe
srnra in collee-e eames of the state
is 38 to 21 in Carolina's favor. Four
games during the season were lost
by one point. Three games went over
nine innings the last Trinity game
and both Maryland State games.
Carolina won of these, the 12 inning
Trinity game and the last Maryland
State game, that went for ten
innings. ' The first Maryland btate
eame also was a ten inning affair
and ended in a tie.
Of the games won, Carolina scored
noints to her opponents' 10, and
of those lost the Blue and White
team scored 31 to her opponents 49;
SovArnl of the eames lost stand
out as bright spots in the schedule,
notably the Penn game, wnicn was
said bv a Philadelphia sports writer
to have been the best contest seen
there this' season, and which gave
the Quakers a decided shake-up that
made them fight to the last ditcn,
a thing said to be against their
religious tenets. Both of the Ver
ginia games were extremely close, as
shown by reference to the score
Taking the season as a whole it has
been one of achievement. The team,
although it has been a little "off"
at times during the earlier part of
the season has come back and has
demonstrated that it had the goods.
It has ended its season well, and
Captain Feimster and "Jo jo" Younce,
who finished their college baseball
career Wednesday, have walked off
the diamond in a blaze of glory with
the winning of the Trinity contest.

ing Johns Hopkins and Catholic
University and being only 2VZ points
behind Washington and Lee and only
9 behind V. P. I., on whose grounds
the meet was held and who conse
quently was able to enter her whole
The Carolina representation was
drawn from the be'st that we had
and our deficience was not in
quality, but' rather in quantity. With
twenty men of the same quality as
the eight we had we would have had
little difficulty in walking off with
the honors of the day.
In the preliminaries of the first
day, Spencer, Nichols, and Norris
qualified in their respective field
events. Royal qualified in the 440,
while the mile and two mile in
which Ranson and Rand were en
tered, respectively, were run the
second day, no preliminaries being
held. Purrington, Harden, and Ran
son, in very fast beats of the 220
hurdles, the 440 and the 880, respec
tively, were eliminated from these
events on the first day.

SOPHIE BRASLAU GIVES
Carolina music lovers were regally
entertained by Miss Soph'ie Braslau
on Monday evening in Memorial Hall.
Here in our little secluded seat of
knowledge it is not often that we
are permitted to enjoy such great
artists as Miss Braslau, in fact she
is the first great singer to visit .the
Hill in recent years. Yet Carolina
has shown that she can appreciate
these great musicians by giving Miss
Braslau the select audience which she
held captivated throughout her pro
gramme. Miss Braslau's surprisingly strong
voice carried to all parts of the hall
completely filling it "with its volume
and beauty. The range, beauty and
sweetness of her superb contralto
voice lifted up and held the soul of
her audience through the entire pro
gramme. The programme was divided into
four parts, a copy of which fol
lows:': " ;; i; ;""
A. "Che Faro Senza Euridice" "
from Orfeo et Euridice Gluck
B. Furibondo Handel
C. Nature's Adoration Beethoven
A. On the Dynepr Moussorgsky
B. La Girometta Sibella
C. Carnaval Fourdrain
D. Eili, Eili Schalitt

C. The Lanthorn ... English
D. Old Folks at Home American
A. Consecration Manney
B. Greatest Miracle of All Guion
C. It is Only a Tiny
D. "Robin Woman's Song"
from Shanewis Cadman
Miss Braslau was recalled a num
ber of times and sang three encores
among which selections was "Sweet
est Story Ever Told." This and the
folk songs were rendered with such
beauty and originality that they
stood out distinctly in the programme.

TWELVE INNING GAME
AWARDS VICTORY TO
TAR HEEL DEFENDERS
ENDS SEASON BY DEFEATING
TRINITY WITH SCORE
TWO TO ONE
"LEFTY" WINS THREE IN WEEK
Caviness Allowed Only Eight Hits
During Entire Game. Bunt and
Sacrifice Settle It
Carolina ended a glorious baseball
season last Wednesday afternoon by
winning over Trinity's strong team
2 to 1 in a fast twelve inning game.
The playing was excellent on both
sides, only one error being credited
to each team. The work was fast
and snappy throughout, and it
seemed to be a "one-two-three"
affair until the fifth inning when
Feimster scored on his walk, his
steal and Younce's single. The Bull
City lads now began to sit up and
take notice. Only twice did they
threaten to score, and then "Lefty"
Wilson's brilliant work robbed them
of their chance.
Pitching his third game in five
days, "Lefty" allowed only four
scattered hits and helped to win his
own game by opening the twelfth
inning with a long two-bagger to the
left. He was sacrificed to third by
Sweetman and scored when Captain
Feimster's perfect bunt rolled safe.
"Lefty" Wilson's brilliant pitching
was declared to be the most remark
able ever seen at the University. In
twelve innings he pitched only
seventy balls. For the first nine
ninnings he threw fifty-two balls,
and in the entire game only thirty
eight batters faced him. In ten of
the " innings - only three men came to
the bat and the other two only four
each. "Lefty's" performance was
considered the more remarkable be
cause he pitched against Wake
Forest last Saturday and against
A. and E. Monday, winning both
The Carolina support was almost
perfect both in the infield and out
field. Pharr robbed the visitors of
several sizzling grounders which
looked as good as gone. Stewart,
Sweetman and Saunders captured
any that ventured their way. Some
were long and heavy hit but would
always get connected with one of
the fielders. Lowe on first was like
clock-work, out of his twenty-two
chances there was not a bobble.
Trinity fielded well, and Chandler
drew a long cheer from the Carolina
rooters when he tore in from right
to catch Saunders fly at his shoe
tops, falling and turning a somersalt
but holding to the ball.
Caviness pitched good, steady,
strong ball for Trinity, and only
allowed eight hits during the twelve
innings. A tie came in the ninth.
Carson attempted to bunt and hit
over Wilson's head, reaching first
safely. He went to second on Cavi
ness' sacrifice and scored on Neal's
timely single to right.
Carolina threatened several times,
notably in the tenth when the bases
were filled with one down, but Cavi

Seniors Plan to
Break World Record
The seniors this year are planning
to break the record. .They will show
Chapel Hill just exactly what's what
in the banquet and will furnish the
music, Mrs. Swain will furnish the
eats, and the people will be the best
that the country can afford. All
the seniors with their girls will be
there to take part in this, the most
spectacular cabaret-banquet that has
been released in these parts since
the days of the old plantation. The
mothers of the seniors will all be
there, and we rejoice in glorious
expectation of this gala occasion.
There was a south of hospitality and
chivalry, and that south, thank God,
is living, growing, breathing every
hour. When you see this senior
cabaret, you will certainly see the
Old North State at its best.
And this is to happen on Tuesday
night, the night before the final
dances begin, and fittingly so, for it
will be an extremely appropriate
beginning of the good times that are
