INTER COLLEGIATE TENNIS CLUB.
Elon College has recently taken a step
forward in athletic reports.
At a meeting of the joint athletic com
mittee last week it was moved and caiv
ried that we co-operate with the Univer
sity of North Carolina, Wake Forest, A.
and M., Davidson, and Guilford colleges
in organizing the Intei-Collegiate Tennis
Chib of North Carolina.
The Club has its first meeting at Chapel
Hill, April 20, 21. Already we cgn. sec
interest in tennis becoming stronger. Two
or three courts are full of play every af
ternoon that weather will pe:mit and on
the “’Varsity court” the team is doing
hard practice of from three to five sets
every afternoon. The boys are working
well and should be commended for it, for
in this w'ay alone can Elon prepare hei-
self to make a good showing at the Inter-
Collegiafe rneeting.
Tlie Inter-Collegiate Club will meet
every year, each college being host in its
turn. South Carolina, and Georgia also,
have clubs similar to this and it will in
deed be a step forward in Athletic sports
in North Carolina.
At each meeting of the club there will
be a tournament played and the winners
will leceive a cup or some trophy which
they keep for one y ar and winning thrje
ycftrs in I lie ieain will be al-
lowed to be the owners of the cups.
We will look forward with interest to
the time when Elon shall be host to this
club and in the meantime it is hoped that
every member of the local club will take
ad\antage of this good w'eathep and prac
tice hard, for when the Club meets here
in some future year we can look back with
pride to the time w'hen the club was first
organized and feel that we had a share in
developing the tcr.m that is to win the
trophies for Elon at some future time.
CARDINAL GIBBONS ENDORSES
TUBERCULOSIS DAY.
Cardinal Gibbons, the highest authority
of the Roman Catholic Chuich in Ameri
ca, has e.xpresstd his approval of Tuber
culosis Day, which is to be observ'ed by
fhe churches of the United States on or
about April 30th, and of the general or
ganized anti-tul>erculosis campaign, ac
cording to a report of an interview made
public to-day by the National Association
for the Study and Prevention of Tubei-
culosis.
The interview was granted by His Emi
nence to H. Wirt Steele, E.xecufive Secre
tary of the Maryland Association for the
I riewntion and Relief of Tuberculosis and
Dr. Charles 0’Donovan, one of the lead
ing physicians of Baltimore. Mr. Steele
and Dr. 0'Donovan explained to the Cai-
dinal the object of Ijuberculosis Day,
namely, that it was an effort to secure a
simnltaneouci and systematic presentation
of the educational side of the tuberculosis
campaign in all of the churches of the
United States on April 30th or on some
other day in the week preceding or the
week following that date. The Cardinal
expressed his entire sympathy with the
plan of the Tuberculosis Day movement,
and endo. sed the i)rogram both of the
Maryland Association and of the National
Association.
Following the interview, Cardinal Gib
bons also sent a letter to Mr. Steele in
which he expressed formally his approval
of the anti-tuberculosis campaign as con
ducted in tlie United Stales at the pres
ent time. The letter is as follows:
Baltimore, Feb. 23rd, 1911.
My Dear Mr. Steele:
1 have read with keen inteiiest the
pamphlets you sent me, which tell of the
triumphs already achieved in the warfare
against tuberculosis.
My wondeti has been aroused by the
simplicity of the arms used in this war
fare—namely—rational living and clean
liness—which are within reach of all.
I shall follow with special interest all
your effoits in this splendid propaganda
against the terrible disease, and hope the
results of your labor will be commensu
rate with the zeal, the energy, and self-
sacrifice which you and your fellow-work-
ers are devoting to the work.
I can remember well the aavages made
by yellow fever in days gone by, but re
joice to see that the medical fraternity
have conjuered it.
I trust that you will be erjuallv success
ful against tuberculi.sis.
With best wishes, I am
Yours faithfully,
J. Card. Gibbons.
The National Association has prepared
an outline for a tuberculosis lecture or
sermon especially adapted for clergymen
who will speak on Tuberculosis Day, and
also other literature which will be sent to
any clergyman applying for it at the of
fice of the National Association, 105 East
22nd Street, New York City, or at the
headquarters of any state or local asso
ciation in the United States.

ELON LOSES TO TRINITY.
Last Saturday the ball team went down
to Durham for a game wwith Trinity Col
lege, which pro\ed the undoing of the
locals. Elon has been playing at a dis
advantage ever since Robert ’s misfortune
a we k or two ago, and this was a serious
draw back. Pearson pitched fine ball and
had steam to burn and used it to advan
tage, but an error at a vital time caused
the trouble. Sparrow also did some sen
sational work in left field as did Faimer
in right, but the former unfortunately
hurt his finger trying for a hard chance
and had to go out of the game.
Hitting was in order when Hedgepath
got two bagger and Newman a beauti
ful single. Dickey caught classy ball,
never failing to keep a sharp eye on sec
ond, catching several men napping there.
Several times it looked as if we ought
to have second when we didn’t.
In the seventh inning with one man
down Hedgepath hit a two bagger. He
was followed by Farmer who hit through
short and stole second, Hedgepath ad
vanced to third. Newman followed and
laid one down scoring Hedgepath. He
Heredity.
Richard Harding Davis at a football
game in Philadelphia praised the voices of
fhe young undergraduates shouting their
weird college yells. “It makes me think
of-a Yocust Street bride,” said Mr. Davis,
smiling. “She turned to her husband one
night at dinner and remarked: ‘My dear,
fhe first time I saw you was at Franklin
Field. Your head was thrown back, your
mouth was wide open, and your face was
very red—you were yelling your college
yell.’ ‘Yes, I remember,’ said fhe young
man. ‘And I noticed,’ >»tie continued,
‘what a lemarkable voice you had.’ ‘Yes,
you spoke of it at the time,’ said he. ‘But
what makes you think of it now?’ ‘Oh,
nothing,’ said the bride. ‘Only I wish
the baby hadn’t inherited it. That’s
all-’ ”—Argonaut.
To test freshness of eggs—drop on hard
surface.
—Solicitor DeLaney will do a good ser
vice to the public if he succeeds in put
ting an end to various games of chance
that are employed in drug stores and other
places to rob people of their money.
