UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, MARCH, 28, 1 895.
Base-Ball Notes. -
Captain Oldham has picked the
men to face Vermont, Boston and
Lafayette. We play Vermont in
Greensboro on the 30th, Boston in
Charlotte on April 1st, and Lafay
ette in Raleigh April 2nd, and also
two games here April 3d and 4th.
The team w ill stand thus for the
Stanle', short stop.
Bailey, 1st base.
Gregory 2nd base.
Slocumb, 3d base.
Graham, E., centre field.
Graham, W., right field.
McAllister, -left field.; ; ;
Subs: Johnson F, Hill.'
The above is also the batting or
der. Collier's absence will be felt
very much in the pitching depart
ment and at the bat.
Hill will face Boston. He ought
to give a good account of himself
as he has plenty of nerve and head-
work. With a good outfield as a
background, and we certainly have
a good one, the "Senator" will not
be expected to strike' out many of the
hardest hitting team in the world.
Johnson F. is easily the best in
fielder outside of those on the 'Var
sity, and may be expected to divide
honors with Slocumb.
The general verdict of the cranks
is that the present team is working
harder and better than any team of
laie years, v ery tew ever miss a
practice, none for the last week.
They play fast, gingery ball every
minute of the game and never let
up till the last man is out. This is
greatly due to the example of Capt
Oldham, whose fitness for his posi
tion grows more evident every day
Stephens will be in the box against
Vermont on the 30th, and also
against Lafayette on April 2nd. He
is in good trim and we all know
what that means for Lafavette and
Greg, says he has a batting aver
age, for one game, of two thousand,
and he can prove it to you.

ombination of the two colors, blue-
Tay and dark blue is handsome and
ffective, but why, oh! why did the
ntiorm committee have such a saw-i
y-ott hammered-down, crank-sided

it is necessary to aeveiope men
for '95 to fill vacancies caused in the
team by some of the old players
leaving. Some of the class teams
had good players on them and these
men should train for the 'Varsity.

in the line of catching' and passing
the ball will be had during- April.
All 'Varsity men, as well as substi
tutes and Scrubs who are not
playing baseball should also join in
this preliminary practice. Dr
Baskerville has kindly consented to
supervise the work, which will be
conducted by Mr. Moore in my ab

been ordered. Everybody help
