WE WIN AGAIN !
The Game with Va. A. & M. at
Score, U. :A C. 32. Va. A.&M., 5.
This game was played at Char
lotte on the 16th. We think that
32 to 5 should prove that we don't
have spasms from fear. The g-ame
was full of fumbling- though luckily
I for us,' our fumbles did not cost us
much. The Blacksburg team play
ed fast, snappy ball, showing- g-ood
coaching-. For them Hart, John
son and Inglers played the. best
g-ame. Carolina's playing was not
as fast as it should have been and
her interference was very ragged
at times. Collier, Baird, Merritt
all broke through well and tackled
hard and the rushing of Stephens
and Moore was of a high order.
Halves of twenty-five minutes
Gregory wins the toss and takes
the west goal with the wind. Capt.
Ingles kicks the ball off 32 yards,
but the gain is only two as Baird
brings it back 30. Then Stephens
keeps it up five more, Moore fails to
gain, but Stephens adds 5. Then
Moore makes 7, Baird 4, Collier 5,
Stephens then makes 10, Moore 12
and Wright 5. But here A. & M.
braces up prettily and the next three
downs gives them the ball for the
first time as Moore, Butler and Ste
phens only make 2 yards.
Capt. Ingles makes 5 yards in 2
rushes, Eskridge adds 3 when he is
very prettily tackled by Moore.
Daskill adds yard, Ingles 1 and
Patrick can't find a hole. So it is
our ball. Moore starts off with 8,
Stephens adds yard and Moore
scores the first touchdown of the
g-ame after a very pretty run of 30
yards. Gregory held and Butler
puts the ball between the posts.
Score 6 to 0.
Time eight minutes.
Ingles kicks off 40 to Moore who
returns 17. Baird makes 1, Ste
phens 14, Moore 2, Collier 5, Moore
4, Wright 5 and Baird 4 yards.
But here the pretty rushing stops
and Butler fumbles. But Gregory
regains the ball after a. loss of 5
yards. This makes the first do wn
and Stephens fails to gain. But he
then gains 17 yards and goes in
touch. Then Moore makes 5 and
Butler 3 yards. Then Moore loses
a yard. But it makes no dfference
for the next rush, behind beautiful
interference Stephens goes 30 yards
and scores the second touchdown in
5 minutes. Butler kicks goal and
the score, U. N. C. 12, A. & M. 0.
Ingles kicks 40 yards to Stanley
who brings it back 12. Collier and
Butler go through for 8 and 4 and
Stephens 3, being tackled in touch.
The ball is brought 15 yards in
when Stephens adds 13, Moore and
Butler make 6 between them and
Moore there fumbles. Luckily But
ler picks it up and makes 12 when
he is forced in touch. Stephens
adds six; Baird takes the ball but
the whistle is blown and A. & M.
is called offside. So we get 10 yards.
Wright makes 4 but Moore fails to
gain. Stephens makes 10 and once
again Moore fails to advance the
ball, Stephens lost 1 yard and then
made 7; Butler makes 4; Moore adds
6, then 4 and then a touchdown.
Butler punts out to Gregory but
the ball is accidenty touched to the
ground and the ball is blocked.
So the score is 16 to 0 and the
time is ten minutes.
Ingles kicks off 45 yards to
Stephens who comes back 33, Butler
punts poorly, only 20 yards, to Das
kill. Ball is put down for a scrim
ag'e and Carolina is offside, with a

In the second half. Butler kicks
off 35 to Martin and he brings it

and Eskridge one yard. Then a
double pass between the halves
gives them four more but Capt. In
gles fails to gain. He fumbles the
ball but Mr. Adams decided that it
was lost, so it is first down. Then
by Collier's and Baird's good work,
Eskridge loses 3; again he tries
but Merritt makes him lose 1 more,
and Ingles is unable to gain; so the
ball is Carolina's on downs. Moore
fumbles, but Nicklin picks it up
and goes 20 yards before he is
thrown in touch. Then on the 1st

Speeches by Members of the Facul
ty and Football Team.
Wednesday11 night there was a
mass meeting in the Chapel to show,
as Mr. Carmichael put it, that there
was still some 'college spirit here,
and toward the accomplishing of
this end the meeting was certainly
a howling success.
First, of course, upon the pro
gramme came Dr. Venable with his
usual happy combination of serious
advice and anecdotes, which must
be some kind of chemical combina
tion as the Dr. seems to be the sole
proprietor of the only orignal. Af
ter him came Profs. Alderman, Gore,
Dr. Battle, Prof. Williams, Dr. Bas
kerville, Mr. Home, and Mr. Butler
and football was treated psycholo
gically, historically, pedagogically,
&c, on down the list.
Capt. Gregory came next and
then amid deafening cheers Tren
chardfwas called forth and address
ed the meeting, then came the var
ious members of the team.
We are sorrj' we cannot give a
detailed account of the speeches for
some of them were the most unique
and original efforts of the kind we
have ever heardspeeches of every
possible discription from Jim.
Baird's beautifully poetic discrip
tion of how in after years he would
fondly gaze upon the picture of the
the undefeated team of '95 down to
Nick's characteristic "what's 'emal
la." The meeting was simply an
expression of the pride the faculty
and student body feel in the team's
record during the year, and what
they hope and expect of it in the
game with Virginia. Good advice
to the team was freely administered
by Mr. Trenchard, Drs. Venable,
Baskerville, and others. The team
was assured of the hearty support
of the student bodv and made to
feel the great interest we have in
the coming game.
Finally with three cheers for the
team and the 'Varsity yell the meet
