are in progress for the games with

Though the places at which the

undecided, still there will be at least

But this is enough to show that we

Our Athletic Debt.
In a recent talk with a member of
the Faculty, who has been intimate
ly connected with our athletic life
ever since its beginning, and who
has always had our -athletic inter
est in view, the sad fact was stated
that the Athletic Association is in
debt. The exact amount of this
debt was not stated, but it is a
heavy debt. In fact so heavy that
it has been doubtful in the minds of
the advisory committee whether or
not it would be wise to put out a
team this year. (
The management of recent sea
sons is we think, in no way to blaipe
for the fact that the debt is hang
ing over tis. But it has happened
unavoidably as far as the manage
ment was concerned:, One instance
which might be sighted in confir
mation of this, was thjp tendency of
last gear's team to 'cabbage balls,
bats, sweaters and otiier property

duty,and report that such an ar
rangement will be heartily endorsed
by the Literary Societies of that
Institution. The plan is to have
two representatives from each in
stitution, one from each of the So
cieties. The place and time of meet
ing will be arranged later; for the
first year, Virginia asks that it be
held at Charlottsville, on or before
the tenth of June.
When we consider the vast amount
of good that may be derived from
the inaugeration of such a series ot
yearly debates, we can easily af
ford to give way in matters per
taining to incidental arrangements.
While we would be glad to have
the first debate at our own Univer
sity, yet we hope that this may
form no obstacle in the final per
fection of arrangements.
With such able representatives
as Herman Harrell Home and John
C. Filer, we should be sure ot a
victory whether this "literary con
