Varsity vs Guilford College.
The first, and. very probably, the
dnly game on .Jiome f grounds, s came
off Saturday .at. the Athletic Park.
flm-iti interest was -centered in the
jrame,. the .crowd, which by :way of
parenthesis, ;.vas. indeed small, man
ifestihg' a great, deal of enthusiasm
and'cheering lustily throughout the
entire game. V
The game, throughout was char
acterized by slow, playing, for. the
Varsity. About two-thirds of the
team having lost .all .the life arid
snap they ever, possessed. Our line
men seemed to think it was their
duty to be as'vfar , removed from the
ground as possible, and many of
thb. tackles resembled a fare-well
embrace of sweethearts.
The team should rectify this er
ror and carry out Coach Johnston's
instructions and tackle low.
Guilford's team worked together
and their steady assaults upon our
line came near giving them a seond
touchdown-. Our team failed to!
come up to the expectation of the
rooters, but the , playing of Wright
Haywood and Green deserve special
notice. Wright, who was tempo
rary captain, did the best work, for
Carolina, and his determined efforts
had much to do with the final re
sult Haywood's brilliant dashes,
and Green's fine tackling and inter
ference were the 'features of the
game. Belden, at full back, played
a strong game, and showed
good judgment. Bagwell, R., at
guard, played a strong game. For
Guilford; Cowles, Tomlinson and
Jordan played the best game.

Society Work Again.
There are. a. number of men in the
University who are deeply interest
ed in the success of ithe Literary
Societies. To these men the class
of work done and the interest taken
in the Societies is becoming a j mat
ter for serious consideration; In
every other department of College
there us some one who is responsi
ble, for its success or its failure. But
with the Societies: the feeling is dif
ferent. No t one 'seems to bear any
responsibility ; in this direction arid
no one would feel himself to blame
were the Societies to close.' In no
other phase t of rour life's from the
Glee Club to the Foot-ball Team Is
there so little interest taken and so
little direct i personal responsibility
The utilitarian spirit which seems
to detract from the interest in some
other branches,- could not affect the
Societies for College offers nothing
thatiwul oe or more practical ser
vice than Society work. And yet
our Societies have become mere fig-
ure heads ana tne worn done in
them is a failure and a farce.
This, we think, is a serious mat
ter and one that should receive the
attention of the thinking- men of the
We are aware of the fact that
there is a tendency amonerall stu
dents to avoid as much work, as
possible. The English Professor
complains (and rightly) on account
of the poor work done in his classes
But this does not account for the
lack of interest in Society work.
The .Societies of the University
are among the oldest and most re
spected institutions in the South and
yet the men here take very , little
pride in them,. and you can t blame
them when you remember that very
little reward is given -for Society
work. . The man who writes a pa
per for any of the various clubs or
who makes the Glee Club or ath
letic teams, is honored and recog
nized. But the Society worker gets
very little credit and works upon
pure cold determination. ' This is
not right, The -Societies are too
important'a factor in our life to re
ceive so little attention and recognition.
We have f no animosity for the
other organizations of - College, we,
are not opposed to athletics; but be
lie ve the athletic spirit - necessary
and desirable. : But let us have some
idea of .proportion. and justice in
recognizing worth and merit.
Loads all : the praise upon one
feature to the ( exclusion" of the oth
ers and the progress -and reputation
of the University will suffer in con
sequence. Recognize Society work ,
encourage and foster' it and the So
cieties : will soon regain their en
viable position of formenyears;

the whole : of College life. The care
that will be given to the preparation
and cooking of food will affect the
general health of the student body,
and will stimulate work in all the de

between the students. The fact of
two hundred students meeting togeth

closer touch and sympathy with each
other and will have' a tendency to
rub off the corners of some and
straighten the crooks of others. But
more important still, it will encourage
general better feeling between stu
dents and will bring about a feeling of
friendship and brotherly kindness that
is sadly wanted here as every where.
