Around the ends the backs show
very little judgement in turning in

much on the field, except Gregory
who doesn't talk enough. The
men do not charge, give plays
away and do not follow the ball
The students must stay outside of
the foul lines, and the players must
report for practice 4:30 sharp each
Ppsters are up (announcing that
Bropks and Macy will be here next
Tuesday night, Oct 15. It is a
departure in our style?bf entertain
ments to have two lectures at once
and no doubt a pleasant evening is
thereby doubly assured. -
Macy is quite a comic singer we
understand as well as humorist,'
while Brooks combines peotry with
humor. The entertainment will
evidently be mainly humorous. This
kind specially suit college men as
they see so much of the serious side
of life and happy diversions are
Brooks and Macy travel together.
Prom here they go to Charlotte
wher they open the Star Course of
lectures given by the Y. M; C. A.
this year. Brooks has been to
Charlotte before and some of the
students who heard him there speak
of him quite highly.
A Y, M, C. A. Building is great
ly needed here. We are glad the
proceeds go to that purpose.

The Year is well started now
and tfaose who are interested in the
Hellenian .'should begin on it soon.
The Hellenian is improving' each
year,- but it is still very faf from
what it ought to be. There are
two reasons for this. In the first
place, the work has always been be
gun too late, the fraternities have
put off ' electing their editors and
they have not started to work when
elected until just in time to get the
book out before commencement;
secondly, the work has always been
confined to a few; of the editors Who
had to do it ail with little help from
the rest of the board and none from
the rest of the college.
Both these '"evils 'might be reme
died; the first by electing1 the edit
ors now, and the second, by electing
the right kind of editors. And in
electing your editors elect a man
who has some ability lor the work
and, most important of all, one who
is willing o 4o it; for it takes work
to get out a creditable annual.
In past years, most of the work
done jn connection with the Hellen
ian ! has been done by the twp men
who wanted to be Ejditof-in-chief,
and when one pf them got elected
each editor seemed to think that the
days of his usefulness were oyer
and the work stopped. We pertain
ly hope that the new board 'of edit
ors will be elected soon and that
they will realize the necessity pf
starting to work at once. We have
plenty "of time' now and plenty of
talent to get put a good annual, so
let's do it.
Pr Aynesj pof.chairinan of the
