Track Team Talk.
The work of the track team has
been delayed somewhat, owing to
the tact that the practice ground
was not in readiness. In the mean
time a heavy board has been put up
as a sort of curbing all the way
round the track, to prevent gutter
ing by water, ana all the coarse
cinders have been swept off, so that
the surface is much improved. A
good jumping and pole vaulting
ground with raised running paths
and large beds of soft earth has
been made. It only remains to re
move one or two stumps of the trees
blown down by the recent storm, to
have the hammer-throwing ground
Exercise was resumed this week
with a bright prospect of good work.
The team will train for the follow
ing events: Running hundred yard
dash; hundred and twenty yards,
high hurdles; four hundred and for
ty yards, straight away; one mile;
and two miles.
Jumping running broad; stand
ing broad; and running high jumps.
The men will take an all-round
training at first, then as they be
gin to show special aptitude in par
ticular branches, they will devote
themselves to perfecting their form
and action, each in his own depart
There is some good material al
ready on the field, but there is more
in college. Nearly every man ex
cels in something. Track athletics
with its several features furnishes
more opportunities for excellence
than any other department of ath
letics. So if any man knows he can
do somethng well, be it only one
thing, let him come out
too, who have never tried them
selves and do not know what they
can do. A little training sometimes
works a wonderful development.
There are, of course, good men now
engaged in foot ball; they will come
in later, and, although they will
not be in good form, they will be in

Indpor Athletic Contest and Entertainment.
Prof. Meckling has obtained lease
from the advisory committee of the
Athletic Association to give a seeies
of entertainments this winter in the
nature of contests in Indoor Athlet:
ics. An entertainment will embrace
an exhibition of all sorts calisthenic
exercises, w ork on apparatus, jump
ing, vaulting, etc. Medals of the
very best kind will be given for ex
cellence; not to the man who excels
in any one department, but to the
man who makes the highest
number of points in all. To illus
trate, if one man makes fifteen
points in one department and five
in another, while another man
makes five points in the first de
partment and fifteen in .the second,
their work in other departments
will, determine which is higher.
Prof. Meckling purposes to hole
the first contest about the first of
December. Looking to this end
some, new apparatus has been or
dered for the gymnasium. Work
will begin at once. The class in
apparatus work will be divided into
three grades according to the de
gree of proficiency. As members of
the lower grades advance they will
be moved up to the higher. A class
n club-swinging will be started
and a little later Prof. Meckling
wishes a class of fifty or sixty men
n fancy calisthenics.
All instruction in the above class
es will be free, but if enough men
to form classes wish it, for a small
tuition fee, Prof. Mechling will
give lessons in boxing and sparring
It is thought best to have the
first entertainment in December,
notwithstanding many good men
now engaged -in foot-ball cannot be
n it. This fact, indeed, will give
men who have had no special train
ing opportunity to attain some de
gree of proficiency before they will
be obliged to compete with the
best athletes in college, thus plac-
ng all on an equal footing for the

Death of Mr. Bingham.
Again it becomes our sad duty to
chronicle the death of one of our late
fellow students, and one of the Uni
versity's distinguished young alum
ni., ... i
On October 1(), Mr. Herbert Bing
ham died at his home at Mebane
after a long and lingering illness.
Mr. Bingham was with us at our
last Commencement exercises, full
of enthusiasm, love and affection
for his Alma Mater: and, little did
we dream that it would be his last
visit. A member of the Class of '95,
Mr. Bingham graduated with dis
tinction, and a long and successful
career seemed open before him, when
it was intercepted by the ruthless
hand of death. Why, we know not,
probably shall never know; but we
believe that somehow, somewhere a
divine hand is ordering all for the
best, and in this belief we are con
tent. The funeral services of Mr. Bing
ham took place on Saturday, con-j.
ducted by .Rev. Mr. Kegley, the
pastor, Rev. Mr. Shields and Dr.
Hume; the latter made a sketch of
his life and paid him an effectionate
The attendance was large, an ev
idence of the affection and esteem
in which Mr. Biugham was held by
those who knew him.
