j Class Teair.s.
j Last year we had four good class
i teams and out of them was devel
oped some good material for the

j many men were provided with good
exercise and the whole college with
a large amount of fun. So why
should the custom not continue.?
It was noted with pleasure that
the Sophomore and Freshman-classes
had elected Captains and Managers
; for their teams for this year. But
i it was also noted with regret that
it ended there. For we have seen
I them doing onlv a little in the wav
j of practice and so far as we know
no games between the classes have
But besides this, we are sorry to
see that the other classes of college
have failed to take any steps to or
ganize teams. We do not know
why this should be so for either the
Senior or Junior, Law -or Medical
class could put up very creditable
team and we hope that they will do
Last year the series of inter-class
games was not completed. .But we
hope that this year this will not be
the case. It could be easily avoided
by a meeting of the managers which
would decide and arrange all dates
before the first game is played. So
let us hope that we will soon see all
the class teamy upon the field, prac
tising to play games arranged so as
to decide the inter-class champion

Below will be found a criticism of
the players for the past week.
Each week hereafter, their playing
will be noted, and we hope that
each man will do his best to correct
his faults and that much improve

The Law Class.
We give below the members of
the Law class that passed their ex
amination last Monday before the
Supreme Court. The class was
unusually, large and one of the
brighest that has left the Universi
ty for years. The Tar HEEL ex
tends to them its best wishes for a
brilliant career in their chosen pro
fession. The class is as follow:
C. L. Abcruathy, Beaufort; S.
F. Austin, Clayton; G. G. Ander
son, Milesville; W. E. Breese,
Asheville; W. D. Buie, Clarktou;
Baylus Cade, Franklinton; J. W.

"The Yale-Harvard foot-ball sit
uation is being forced to a final po
sition by the principals. There is
now no doubt that Yale is making
a last effort to assure a game, and
if the usual annual contest is not
arranged, the fault will probably
lie with Harvard. In two ways
Yale makes concessions, first by
opening communication with Har
vard again after declining to play
that team unless an apology was
made, and secondly agreeing to com
promise the rules decided upon by
Yale and Princeton for those adopt
ed by Harvard, Cornell and the
University of Pennsylvania."
The handsome gold cane present
ed by the Law Class of '95 to Judge
Shepherd is but a slight token of
the universal love entertained for
him by the students of the Univer
sity. In him we recognise a staunch,
true friend, who shows his love for
the University annually by his de
votion to the law school.
He is an able jurist, and even po
litical revolutions cannot keep a
grateful people from rewarding
such a noble character.
