!' Bass-ball Notes.
We 'were very much mistaken a. few
iweeks ago, when we said only four of
last year's team were in training- this
f ear. : Bailey, F. and Graham, E.
fboth played on last year's team. Gra
liam, .is trying- for his old place,
Lentre field, and stands a good show
,f getting" it. He covers the garden
! well, and fields the position in g-ood
shape! ' His batting- is weak but is im
provingr . McAlister, J: is another
promising candidate for the same place.
He also covers the territory well , and
rarely misses a fly ball. His throwing-
is strong- and generally accurate.
His batting is also weak.
Graham, W. seems to have, the' call
for left field and is the best fielder in
the batch. He backs, up bases ant.
generally keeps up. with the play bet
ter than the others, tor the last, few
days his batting- has-been falling- off
but he began the practice, with a g-ood
lv number of base. hits. . . .
IJrem has been a candidate for field,
but has been transferred to first,
where he seems more at home. He
fully up to the standard there, as set
bv the other candidates, and on "pop
flies seems to be ahead of them. His
batting- also is weak. This position
is hard to criticise as no man has . yet
held 'it for more than a few inning's at
a time. ; ' ' ' ;' ;
As. to batting, the team has been
batting- for a priae offered by an enter
prising- clothing firm,' for the best av
erage in fifteen times at the bat.
Stanly; v Stephens, Collier,' Oldham
and Bailey, are lerding the candidates
Stephens has seveal four-baggers to
his credit and Collier has as many
doubles. Captain Oldham sticks to
his old love, the -."bunt, but we believe
he would do better if he would depend
more on straight hitting-j Stanley
has. changed sides with to perceptible

eirect on nis oauing average, ore
phens gets a four once every nine in
nings, but sometimes g-ets three strikes.
Greg-ory has not got his eye on the
ball good yet, but improves every day.
Slocumb bats fairly well and would do
better if he would use a lighter stick.
Baily's batting is fair; not near so
good as it might be, but is improving
Johnson, C. hits the ball quite often,
but don't seem to keep it away from
the fielders. His great fault is slug
ging. Sometimes it takes years of ex
perience to break a player of this fool
ishness. Johnson, F. has improved
greatly in hitting-, for which he had
ample room. McRae bats poorly for a
very evident reason : he draws away
from the plate instead of . going- for
ward. Collier and Graham are also
examples of this seemingly uncon
scious, fault; '. It is a bad habit noth
ing else, and the sooner you break
it, the sooner will you fatten your av
erage". Brem is improvihg- at the bat,
McAlister also'. Price hitsNat everything-
in reach or out of reach. Hill
does not iniprovemnch at the bat but
is fast developing into a number one
pitcher. Klutz hits the ball often, but
rarely takes atour of the bases. Wood
son makes a hit now and then,' and
The diamond has had a thorough
scraping and is now in record-making-condition.
The new bases have also
been put in position and things begin
to look businesslike." The uniforms
are expected foptr.
A Reception in Honor of Dr. Wins
. For the last'' two' months Dr
Winston has spent the greater part
of his time in'Raleig-h defending- the
interest of higher education in g-en
eral 'against the. "attacks of certain
parties who have publicly and pri
vateiv waged an educational war
against the hig-her institutions o
our State lor some time past. On
last ' Thursday night Dr. Winston
returned to 'the' Hill more than vie
tor. At at a meeting of the studen
body bri Thursday af ternoon, it was
resolved that'the untiring- efforts o:
our "President and his gdoriqus vic
tory entitled him to a warm recep
tion by the entire student body. In
accordance with this, he was met at
the depot by, a committee with a
carriage drawn. by. four horses, and
driven at once to the Chapel where
lie was greeted by the students eu
masse, bv themembers of the
faculty, and by many of the towns
people. A hug-e bonfire furnished
light,' as well as added heat to
the already enthusiastic crowd.
! As the crowd was assembling- Dr.
Winston was escorted up the aisle
to the music of the colored baud,
and amid the cheers of the audience
At the solicitation of the crowd he
arose, and said the battle had been
won and won forever. He spoke of
the valuable services rendered es
pecially by the President of" the
Senate and the Speaker of the
House, refering- also to Fowler and
Stanford who were members of the
law class of '94. He said that he
and those who stood by him in this
contest had only saved what his
predecessor in office, Dr. Battle, had

arose, and, filled to overflowing
with enthusiasm,- spoke of the influ
ence of the University throughout
the State and of its mission to the

mer, spoke words of cheer to the
After this Dr. Winston was driv

M obre, . Brown and Lindsey were ap

of the students to Dr. Winston for the
tireless efforts he has made this year
in behalf of the' Universit'. The
committee immediately met and de
cided that a banquet be given to our
The banquet is to be at Pickard's
