' Foot Ball Criticlstti.
, Below will be found l criti
cism of the plajTers in last Satur
day's game againt A. & M. Col
White, slow getting charge on
his man. Snapped the ball poorly
at times and did not follow the ball
closely enough. Made very few
. Collier did not play low enough
in the line, allowing the opposite
side to straighten him up and charge
him back. Did not follow the ball
closely enough and tackled high and
ran too slowly with the ball.
Hiirly did not play low enough
and after charging through the line
seldom srot the man. Followed the
Steele allowed the opposing side
to charge him back. Did not break
up the interference. Did not break
through to stop any kicks and should
charge interference harder,
Wright allowed opposing side to
box him, Did not get down the
field quickly enough on a kick and
followed ball poorly.
Gregory meets; interference too
clqse tp line and is often smothered,
allowing runner to go outside of
him. : Tackles high at times and
slow in getting down field on kick.
Gave signals too slowly and hesi
tates too much.
Merritt apt to meet interference
too close to line allowing runner to
go outside of line, Apt to overrun
his man on kick and tackles high at
Moore goes at line too high, gives
play away by looking at the spot to
which the play is going. Turns in
too close when going around the
end. Apt too get mixed up in the
line too soon on defensive play.
Nicklin slowed up in hitting the
line, did not get close to his inter
ference and used poor judgement in
going in or out around the ends.
Tackles too high aud does not hit
the end rush well on end plays.
Whitaker slow in passing the ball
and apt to get i'n the way of the run
ner and on defensive play goes at
the interference too high especially
through the center.
Stevens fumbles too much, did
not know signals 'well.
McRae does not interfere for
runner well and in open '..field
tackling does not watch man
enough and goes at him too hard.
Does not kick with regularity.
General Criticism of the Game. -Owing
to the peculiar style of de
fensive play of A, and M. team, the
men seemed to be at a loss as to who
should take the extra men. On a
kick off, the backs allowed the ball
to strik the ground and did not start
quickly enough when they caught
it on a fly and hesitated too much
Interference started and ran entire
ly too slow. Did not break through
quickly enough to stop kick, .

i The dances given by the Univer

events of our, college life, and the
German last Friday night was no
exceptions to the established rule,
when, with some of Caralina's fair
est daughters we gaily tripped the
light fantastic until the wee small
hours had begun to grow large
The German was led, with that
ease and grace so characteristic of
the leader, Mr. P. J. Thomas, as
siated by Messrs. John Andrews
and Stuart Hill.
After the dancing was over the
scene of action was transferred to
the University Inn, where an ample
spread awaited the party, and after
this was over the last good nights
were said and the October German
was numbered among the happy
recollection of the past.
