The game with Georgia occurred
in Atlanta1 last Monday, resulting:
in' a victbry , for' our opponents.
Three' thousand 'people witnessed
the game which, on account of dark
ness, was called nineteen minutes
before the 'time was up. This call
in of time was disastrous to North
Carolina;' for" s h e w a s gaining;
ground rapidly and at every rush.
We question whether this can be
considered' a" chatflpionship' game,
because the halves agreed upon
were not played to a finish.
Captain Wright won the toss and
chose the north goal. Love joy kick
ed to Carolina's twenty yard line.
Seaffle and Moore advanced , the
ball, but' Haywood' failed to gain
and Belden kicked thirty yards to
Lovejoy. The ball was fumbled, how
ever, and , it was Carolina's ball.
Georgia's line resisted the assaults
of Carolina and Belden was forced
to kick. Lovejoy made a fair catch
on Georgia's five yard line. By a
series of good rushes, Georgia
forced the ball to Carolina's thirty
yard line, where the quarterback
kick was tried. Georgia was un
able to gain and the ball went over
on downs, uaronna' was equaiiy
unfortunate, and Georgia regained
the sphere on the 'Varsity's twenty
yafd line;- Successive rushes by
Blanch Lovejoy, Nally and Coth
ran placed the ball on Carolina's
eight' yard line, when it was given
to Price who scored the first touch
down of the game. Lovejoy kicked
goal; time, ten minutes.
Belden kicked to Nally who ad
vanced the ball fifteen yards. Geor
gia tried 'the line for no gain and
Lovejoy kicked 'to Green; making'a
fair catch on Georgia's forty-five
yard line.' The signal was then given
for a mass on left tackle, and Hay
wood made Carolina's first touch
down. Belden kicked goal. Score

The Second Game.
The second game of the1 southern
trip was played Monday with the
Charlotte Athletic Club: A good
crowd witnessed the game and ev
erybody expected the 'Varsity to
win, although the Charlotte colors
predominated in the' crowd. The
unexpected often' happens, however,
and at the end of the second half
the score was 80 in favor of Char
lotte, The 'Varsity played under
disadvantages but' the game should
have been ours. Charlotte's line
was vcrv -weak but the vigorous
rushing of her backs made up for this
defect! Carolina" was suffering:
from' the' result's of the Georgia
game and' iri addition lined up with
out Wright arid Moore. A safety
by Green and a touchdown by Dur
ham in the first half is the storv of
the scoring diiring the game. In
the second half neither scored and
when time was called the ball was
on Carolina's 25 yard line.

Mr. Steele's Gift to the Di Society.
It is always pleasant to be re
membered by one's friends, and
when that friend resides hundreds
of miles away it is doubly pleasant.
Mr. Thos. W. Steele, of Arkansas,
has recently sent, to the Dialectic
Society, a unique and valuable gift
in the shape of ,an elk horn chair.
The chair is made of three large
horns, and is valuable from a money
point of view, but the Society has
other reasons for appreciating it. .
Mr. Steele is an old University
man,- and received his diploma from
the Dialectic Society fifty years ago
He is a brother of the late Walter
Leak Steele, and also a brother of
Robert L. Steele, who distinguished
himself in this State as a success
Dr Battle, on behalf of his old
friend Mr. Steele, presented the
chair to the Society and made a
short but interesting talk on the
life of the donor.
The chair is now in the Dialectic
Hall and those who may ' be inter
ested can see it there. ,
Captain of Scrubs. 1
Mr. P. O. Rogers has been elect
ed Captain of the "'Varsity Re
serve" again this year. This is a
just recognition .of Capt. Roger's
energetic efforts to give the 'Varsi-
jty good- practice. . That the team

Concluded on fourth f'lr''-
at all, for it was recognized last
1 year that the strength of the team
'of '95 was largely due to his zeal.
Mr. Joel Whitaker, on account of
his injuries, has resigned the Cap
taincy of the 'Varsity and Mr. R.
H. Wright, who has taken his place,
will henceforth lead the Carolina
cohorts to victory. We rejoice at
the team's selection for we believe
a better one could not have been
made. While we regret that an
accident has made it necessary for
our ; old Captain to resign, we are
nevertheless delighted to know we
have a man so thoroughly able to
assume his duties. Ever since his
connection with the University Mr
Wright ha3 been an earnest, cou
scientious, and enthusiastic footbal
player. In his Sophomore year he
played a good tackle for the scrub
eleven; and the following season
made a record for himself and the
University by playing right tackle
as few men in the South are able to
. Penton, Virginia's heavy-weight
Captain, like John L. Sullivan, ad
mitted that he had played foot ball
once too often when he met Wright,
and he retired from, the game im
mediately never to enter it agfain.
With the .same enthusiasm of
former years, Mr. Wright entered
the game this season and quickly
gained his old position.' He has been

The meeting of the Shakespeare
Club was held on Thursday night,
November 5. This was not the
regular time for the meeting but it
was thought best to change the time
in Wder to avoid conflict with other
societies. .There ' was, however, a
The following papers were read:
1. Shakespeare's Handling" of
Metre. Mr. W. S. Myers.
Mr. Myers has been making a
special study of this subject so that
his work embodied a very full treat
2. Did Voltaire Understand
Shakespeare? Mr. Sam'l. May.
The contention of the paper that
Voltaire did not understand Shakes
peare was established in two ways.
First. " By showing' that Voltaire
weakened his characters and plots
by failing to follow Shakespeare's
method of treatment in that way
evincing a lack of insight. Second.
By certain direct expressions taken
from Voltaire's correspondence in
which the opinion that Shakespeare
was a barbarous buffoon, emitting
only sparks of genius from a dreary
waste of rubbish is clearly stated.
3. Dramatic Irony in Richard
III. T. L. Wright.
4. Marlowesque Features in Rich
ard III. D. Batman.'
Both the above papers were well
prepared, the one showing Shakes
peare's consummate skill in hand
ling Dramatic Irony and Nemesis,
the other, by historic and compara
tive evidences how the Marlowes
que in this play is due to the fact
that it was written just after
Shakespeare's intimate association
with Marlow.in the preparation of
certain other plays.
