'Varsity O vs. Sewanee O.
The team arrived at Sewanee Tues
day morning in a condition by no
means favorable for playing foot-ball ;
worn out with their long journey and
loss of sleep and still feeling the ef
fects of the two hard games just play
ed with Georgia and Vanderbilt, they
were far from their true form. Sev
eral of the regular team were unable
to play,, so with four substitutes, a
combination of- backs behind the line
that had. never played together before,
one man as halfback who had not
played that position even in a practice
grme during the season. We lined up
against a team in good condition and
on their own grounds.
We regret that, on account of the
absence of our reporter we are unable
to give a detailed account of the game.
Speaking generally, however, the game
was rather a defensive one on both
sides ; it was played mostly in Sewanee
territory they being at no time dan
gerously near our goal, while several
times we were within a few yards of a
touchdown when the ball would be
lost on downs or accidently. Only 20
minute halves played and the game
had to be called before time was up to
allow the team to catch the 5 o'clock
Sewanee has a rather light but fast
snappy team and they play a clean
: There was no slugging on either
side or any kind of unpleasantness be
tween the teams. The officials were
perfectly fair and there was no kicking
Second Georgia Ga:e.
Gregory won the toss and took
Bast goal. There was little or no
wind, but lots of mud and a mean
rain fell during the entire game.
: Butler ran back 30 yards after
Stubbs kicked. Georgia' sline was
stubborn and only short gains were
made thro' it, but they netted 25 or
30 yards when offside play gave
N. C. 10 more. Collier was helped
by Hurley to gain 8 yards; Georgia
got the ball after Stephens failed to
gain twice. Ga's. fullback fumbled
the ball and Moore fell on it over
the line; Whitaker missed an easy
goal. Score 4 to 0.
Baird ian back 30 yards from the
initial kick; Morris continually
prevented Moore from making gains
Some poor playing in the way of
interference on the right side of the
line was done by Carolina here.
Hurley gets out and carries Ste
phens 35 yards and again for 30
more and a touchdown. This, time
goal was kicked.
Score, Carolina 10, Ga. 0.
; Stephens ran 20 yards back; But
ler kicked 40 yards, Gregory got
the ball; Stephens 15 yards; Ga.
got ball on downs; several attempts
gave short gains; Stubbs punted 35
yards; Whitaker fell on the ball.
Time called ball middle field.
Butler kicked 20 yards. Price
brought it back 10, Nally 25 yards,
Butler saved touchdown by the hard
tackle and was hurt; Stubbs' sever
al rushes netted 20 yards. Offside
play put Ga. within one foot of N.
C; In two rushes it went over.
Stubbs kicked nice goal.

Twenty minute halves were play
on any of the decisions or disagree
ment about rules.
The boys Jeport a very pleasant re
ception and the best of treatment at
Sewanee. For the 'Varsity Whitaker
did especially good work.
i Below will be found a criticism
of the players on the Southern trip:
, White played a steady game with
the exception of the Vanderbilt
g'ame .where his snapping in the
first five minutes was very poor.
I Hurley, in first Ga. game allowed
his man to break through him fre
quently and very seldom got into
interference and did little tackling.
In Vanderbilt game played better.
In Sewanee game he did no , playing
at all. In the second G a. game he
played the best game he has played
this season, his interference on end
plays being especially good.
,'. Collier. In first Ga. game block
ed and broke through well. Kept
up with the ball. But he did not
even try to get into the interference
oil end plays. In Vanderbilt game,
he allowed his opponent to outplay
him at every point and seemed to
lose heart after the first five min
utes of the game. In Sewanee game
he was useless. , In the last Ga.
game, on end plays never tried to
get into interference. In the last
two weeks he has not tried to get
into interference of follow ball close-
Baird. In first Ga, game he went
at his opponents and tackled too
high; often allowing the man af
ter being tackled to carry him for
ward.. In Vanderbilt game he play
ed better although he had little to
do, but didn't block guard when
Collier ran with the ball. In Sewan
nee game he allowed himself to be
boxed by end rusher often.
I Wright played too close to his
guard in first Ga,, game for he al
lowed mass to get . on outside of him
instead of stopping it, in first half.
Played well in second half. In Van
derbilt game, at first the new style
of interference puzzled him but af
ter finding how to break it up play
ed a g-ood game. In Sewanee game
allowed opposing end to box him of
ten. In second Ga. game, he play
ed a good game.
: Merritt and Gregory played poor
ly on the whole trip, allowing tricks
to be worked on them. Ga. work
ed double pass on them several
times. In Vanderbilt, allowed half
backs to circle them accasionally.
In Sewanee the backs went round
them at will. They must meet in
terference more quickly, follow the
ball more closely and when back of
opponent's line, can clearly see all
tricks before they reach them.
! Whitaker played poorly in first
Ga. game. In Vanderbilt game
fumbled very often in the first five
minutes but played a steady game
afterwards, very often tackling the
opponents five or ten yards back of
the line. In Sewanee game he was
slow in passing the ball, getting in
to interference and following the
plays. In second Ga. game he play
Stephens played well on the .whole
trip, making long runs in both Ga.
games, but fumbled in the first five
minutes of Vanderbilt game.
1 Moore started too slowly but ran
hard. Did not make many long runs,
his interference being poor.
Butler played a good game except
that he was too slow in the Sewanee
game. His warding when running
with ball was very good.
Stanley played a steady game but
started and ran too slowly especial
ly in Sewanee game.
; Steel started and ran too slow.
Williams played poorly but was
handicapped by sprained ankle. ;
Winston played fairly well, allow
ed himself to be fooled once by
In first Ga. game and Sewanee
game the men played with no life.
The line men allowed themselves to
be charged back and boxed. Backs
started and ran slowly. The whole
team failed to follow and get into
the plays at all.
In Vanderbtlt game the first five
minutes the backs fumbled often and
the team allowed Vanderbilt to gain
but afterwards with the exception
of Collier and Baird at times, play
ed a good game. In second Ga.
game, in first half, everybody play
ed well with the exception that Ste
phens did not block the extra man
and that Collier did not get into in
terference thereby hindering the
whole right side of the line from
doing so. The team must follow
the ball more closely, tackle lower
and harder. Line men must charge
more quickly and every man in every
play must put-in the right time.
, The next in the series of enter
tainments for the benefit of the Y.
M. C. A. building is the lecture
next Saturday night of Prof. A. W.
Hawks, "The Laughing Philoso
pher," of Baltimore. Prof. Hawks
was here last year and delivered two
lectures under the auspices of the
Di. Society, delighting everyone
who heard him. We are fortunate
in having him with us again, and a
large crowd is expected to be out.
It is a rare treat to have such a lec
turer as Prof. Hawks. He sees the
beautiful in life as well as the re
diculous, and is well named "The
Laughing Philosopher." The ad
mission is within reach of all and
everyone should go out, both for
their own amusement, and to lend
their sympathy and aid to the move
ment for a Y. M. C. A. bnilding.
His subject will be "Hawks on
Hash," and the lecture will be at
8 P. M. in Gerard Hall. The ad
mission is only twenty-five cents.
The following men will leave at 4 p.
m., Friday for Lynchburg to play with
Washington and Lee on Saturday:
-. White, Collier, Hurley, Iiaird,
Wright, Gregory, Nicklin, Merritt,
Whitaker, Moore, Stephens, Butler,
Steele and Stanley.
