The following resalotions were adopted in regard to inter-collegiate athletics and foot-ball. Resolved, That it is the sense of the Board of Trustees that inter-collegiate games of foot-ball on the part of students of the Uni versity, be discouraged until the massed plays are forbidden, or the rules of the game so modified as to make it less dangerous. Resolved, That the total num ber of school days allowed for these sports shall not seriously interfere with college duties. Resolved, That the attendance upon these games at other points by students not belonging to the team or substitutes be forbidden except upon written requests of the father or guardian, f There was entire unanimity in the Board as to two points, (1) the great value of athletic culture and games to the University; (2) the improper excesses to which these games are being carried through out the country, especially in the Northern Colleges. The desire of the Board was to restrict the games within1 reason able bounds and remedy potent evils. The resolutions are supplemen tary to already existing rules of the University which forbid any student playing on a team except with the consent of his parent or guardian. Ne w s-Observer-Chronicle. s NEW LIBRARY ARRANGE ; y . ' MENTS. O , , The closing of the present ses sion will mark a new era in the history of the library of the Uni versity of North Carolina. For merly the library has been owned, controlled and largely supported by the Dialectic, and Philan thropic Societies. - It has always been the policy of these societies to add a definite number of vol umes each year, and by this grad ual growth, the library has as sumed large proportions, and is beginning to need the support of stronger hands. The societies, recognizing this fact, and having the best interest of the library at heart, have decided to let it pass under the control of the Univer sity as a donation from the two societies. In doing this, they have acted wisely and judiciously. Under this new management the library will receive a larger ap propriation, a permanent libra rian, and a more rapid growth in every particular. The following agreement now exists between the Faculty and the societies : 1 st. The general management of the library shall be given to the Faculty. A libra, y fee shall be charged to each matriculate, whether in the college or profes sional schools. This fee shall be to the society members, two dollars per year, but may be higher to non - members, and all money thus collected shall be applied to the purchase of books and periodicals, the Fac ulty binding itself, to pay the librarian's salary and all other expenses, from the funds. 2d The name of the library shall be ' 'Library of the Univer sity of North Carolina, endowed by the Dialectic and Philanthrop ic Societies." 3d. There shall be appointed by the president of each society, at the same time as the annual committee, a member of the sen ior class, who shall be known as Library Directors. These stu dents, together with the Faculty librarian, shall constitute the gov erning board. The duties of this board shall be : I. To make laws for the government of the library. II. To select books and periodi cals to be purchased. III. To have all powers not expressly given to others. 4th. The librarian shall be elected by the committee of the Faculty, and shall serve so long as he gives satisfaction. 5th. There shall be given an nually, to each society, a scholar ship to be known by name of the society. This shall be awarded each year to some deserving per son, who has been a member of the society at least one year, and in return the recipient shall assist the librarian as he shall be needed. 6th. The library shall be open from 8:30 a. m., to 6 p," m., with exception of half hour for dinner. . 7th. A catalogue of books now belonging to each society shall be made and preserved. 8th. If at any time two-thirds of the members of either society shall desire that their society shall withdraw from this agreement, that society shall have a right to remove all books belonging to it at the present time. 9th. A legal contract shall be drawn up and signed in duplicate by the President of the Univer sity and the committees, one copy of which shall be filed in the Ar chives, and the other by the Pres ident of the University. 10th. When the contract is drawn up any article in it may be amended at any time by consent of majority of each society and the Faculty. That 110 drastic measures were taken by our trustees in their re cent meeting regarding our ath letics, is nothing more than we expected from the men of brain who constitute our board.
