The Line-up of the Two Teams.
'Before the TAR, HEEL comes out
arain the great gaine with the Uni
versity of Virginia toward which
we have been bending all our foot
bail energies, will be played and the
WWot'Wh'P decided for
another year. .
, Manager Carmichael reports that
all the preliminary arrangements
Vn'a contracts have been made. The
ame will be played at West End
' ii:'lt.l.U1 crridirnn will
be enclosed with a picket-fence, and
o one except the players ana oi
AiU of the erame will be admitted
into the enclosure. The Chief of
Police has been , seen by Manager
Carmichael and an ample force se
cured to keep the crowd back. Mr.
Carmichael speaks very highly of
the gentlemanly ireauncut
reci'eved .at the hands of Virginia's
Manage JLwA and
of Manager William's.sincere desire
to arrange everything so as to se
cure fair play. .... .
While both, teams, are weaker
than the respective teams of last
season, they are both in good con
dition and playing for all they are
worth;, so .the contest will be hard
fought. In'three evenings' practice
lately Virginia scored points on
her scrubs. , Our , team , recently
scored 60 points in one evening.
What will be' .the exact line up
for the game ia not certainly known
yet; as best we can judge, it will be
something like the following:
RE. White, I
R.T. Bennett (Seajfle),
R.G. Carson (Bagwell),
L.T. Wright (Capt.),
F.B. ' Belden, ;
The team will leave Wednesday
morning and return Friday. It is
expected that ten tnousanu pwpic
will witness'the game.
Chapel Hill High Scool.
A , notice of .Mr. John Canada's
preparatory school appeared in one
of the Tar Heel's earlier issues,
but' since ' that time we have
been more able to note its successful
year' The need of such a schbol in,
the village has long been felt and the
young boys and girls of the.vicinity
are fortunate in having the instruc
tions of such an efficient corps of
teachers Mr. Canada acts as head
master and ts assisted in some class
es by 'his brother.,, The primary
classes are managed by Mrs. Wilson
and 'MisV Loula Hend.on, both of
whom' ha ve'had much experience in
this line of work. . . "''
In a few .years the school will
probably be not. only a day school
but its patronage may be,i widened
to include all .this part of the State,
and so a! first class preparatory , in
stitution! may beA established in con
action wrththe University.'
These notorious enemies met upon
the gridiron last Saturday, and the
Freshmen evened up. a few old
scores by defeating the Sophomores
6 to 4.
It was a battle royal, the plucky
little Fresh, rushing the arrogant
Soph, and vice versa, with demon
like energy. In the first half the
Freshmen had the game their way
and succeeded in scoring- a safety
and a touchdown,, although goal
was missed. In the second half the
Sophomores braced up and made a
touchdown, but failed goal.
The game is. called at 3 o'clock,
the Sophomores kicking- off. The
ball is rapidly advanced by Shuford,
Robinson, Woodardand Bolden, and
if looks as if. the Freshmen must
make : a touchdown; but as they
cross the line, the ball is fumbled
and Connor falls on it scoring a

yard line. The Freshmen
buck line with good results and
Shuford and Woodard make long
gains. Bolden gains around left
end and Robinson is pushed over for
a touchdown. Woodard fails to
kick goal. Score, '00 6; '99 0.
Soon after this, time is called,
and the first half is over. , . ,
The Sophomores in the second
half play harder ball and rush down
the field rapidly. Winston, Harris
and Davis gain and the latter at last
makes touchdown. Winston misses
goal. Score, '00 6; '99 4. Time is
now called and the Freshmen have
won by the narrow margin of two

Mr. Sayford begins the Y. M.C. A.
On Wednesday night the series of
meeting-s for the Y. M. C. A. was
commenced by Mr. S. M. Sayford,
the college evangelist of the United
States. By way of introduction Mr.
Sayford gave a short history of the
work. How it had its birth at Am
herst College, how it had grown in
power , and influence; and how at
present nearly every educational in
stitution in America has its Chris
tain organizations. Several person
al experiences in connection, with
the work were related in such a
manner that the, importance . of
Christain work among college men
could not fail of being firmly im
pressed upon the audience. -In
Tuesday night's talk, attention .was
called to the true meaning of "What
is being a Christain?" Verses from
the New Testament were read
showing what qualifications a
Christain must possess, according
to the standard set up by Christ.
The speaker then impressed upon
his hearers the fact that Christianity
cannot bg argued into a person, but
must come from the quickening
power of the Holy Spirit. Then he
spoke with some force, bringing to
the, minds of his hearers that, all
were misdirected unless sought for
in the religion of the Ivord Jesus
Christ. - - - ' - '- .
Increase of attendance . and in
terest shows that Mr. Sayford has
already made a very pleasant im
pression upon the students. We
are delighted to have such an earn
est Christain worker among us. A
man who comes to us with the bur
den upon his heart of the salvation
of college men. . Mr. : Sayford s
manner of speaking is very attrac
tive. Every person in the audience
is made to feel that a personal rela-j
tion exists between himself and the
speaker. We consider ourselves
fortunate in securing him; and un
der his leadership, there can be but
one result the winning of many
lives for higher and nobler expres
sion of manhood, and great increase
of spiritual energy and devotion in
