Vest several years the Medica
Department of the University has
furnished the Varsity team with
(rood players; this year it gave the
Varsity its centre, quarterback, and
a half-back. " But this season saw
the first attempt of the "Meds." to
ionize a team ot their own and 1
crress is any inducement they
should have a team hereafter every

best class team in college tms fall

The Scrubs' Trip.
The Second Eleven took ad van
tageof the Thanksgiving holidavs
and played two games, the first
with Wilmington Athletic Club,
and the second with Wilson Athlet
ic Club. The first game resulted
in a score of 60 for Wilmington
The Scrubs in this game scored a
touchdown but the umpire ruled it
out, claiming that Tate went out of
touch on the forty yard line. The
superior weight of Wilmington en
abled her to score a touchdown.
The Wilmington papers were very
enthusiastic over the game and com
plimented the Scrubs very highly.
Tate was conceded to be the star
player of the two teams. The
Wilmington people gave the boys a
German at night and exerted them
selves to make their visit a pleasant

bad to be a Scrub after all.
A Newspaper League.
A new project has been started
among the different college papers
of the South which is rather origi
nal in its plan but which will un
doubtedly be of great interest to the
college men of the South. The plan
was originated by the editors of thel
College Spirit, ot Tulane Universi
ty, and they certainly deserve the
highest credit for the starting of
such a movement.
The plan is this. The most .im
portant college newspapers of the
South form among themselves a
league for the purpose of informing
each other of the "progress and gen
eral condition of affairs" of their
colleges. This is accomplished in
this way: The editor of one of the
papers writes one week to the other
members of the league who publish
his letter in their different papers.
In this way, a letter will appear
each week in the various papers
from a different college until all
have written and then the first be-
. tit.. i. i. :ii V,..
gins again, mucn mieresi wm uc
aroused by these letters, and a
strong feeling of brotherhood among
the different colleges will thus be
The following papers are mem
bers of the league, and the probable
order of exchange will be as follows:
1. College Spirit Tulane. -
Orange and Blue Auburn.
Red and Black Georgia.
Tar Heei North Carolina.
The Purple Sewanee.
The Hustler Vanderbilt.
College Topics Virginia. -Alcade
Red and Black.
In Germany one man in 213 goes
o college; in Scotland one in 500; in
the United States one in 2000; and
in England 5,000.
President Alderman addresses the
; People of Durham.
The Durham Herald has the fol
lowing to say of Dr. Alderman's
address delivered at the Durham
Graded Schools Nov; 25th.
The address of Dr. E. A. Alder
man, president of the State Univer
sity, at the Graded Schools yester
day was a masterly effort and
showed to the Durham people that
the University, North Carolina's
pride and honor, was in good hands.
. His tribute to Trinity College
showed that he was a true friend to
education wherever found, from the
free school in the little hut in the
couutry to the denominational col
leges and the University.
He was eloquent at times, and
from the beginning to end held the
entire attention of his vast audience.
In referring to the University Dr.
Alderman said: "The University
nas no war to make against any
thing but ignorance and it fears no
harm. While the University .is
being fought on all sides by denom
inatioualists, the president of that
noble institution calmly announces
that the University is fighting no
one doesn t wish to nght any one and
that he fears no harm from those
who are seeking the life of the in
stitution he loves and now has charge
Of. '. ... '
All honor to North Carolina's
University! All honor, to its broad
minded, noble " hearted president
May the school that was establish
ed just as the! gray streaks in the
eastern horizon announced the com
ing of the eighteenth century live
on and on doing its noble work and
lifting fallen humanity to a higher
plain of usefulness until millions
shall rise and call it blessed.
In the Chapel.
Dr. Alderman has a good eye for
that kind of improvement which de
pends for its advantage on the taste
ful combination and rearrangement
of articles serving. their purpose in a
certain way but hot to the best ad
vantage. This ability is of great
service in making the most of cases
like ours where limited resources are
struggling with increasing needsand
limited means. The latest result of
Dr. Alderman's effort at making
things, ordinarily regarded as evils
necessary to be endured, pleasant
for the boys is the improved ap
pearance and really comfortable
condition of the Chapel: The cold
sepulchral appearance of the dead
white walls has been removed by
putting on a bright, warm coat of
calcemine. The effect of emptiness
has been lessened by suspending a
large bronze chandelier procured
from the Phi. Society. New car
peting has been put down, missing
chairs supplied, doors and windows
made to fit tight, and the whole
cleaned up so that one actually has
a feeling of comfort when he enters.
Some attraction of interest has been
secured by putting the old banner
painted by Oertel which represents
the North. Carolina Declaration of
Independence above the rostrum;
by hanging some valuable portraits
J 1 t r-T
which are those of Gen.
Wm. R. Davie, J ohnathan Worth
and Chas. F. Deems, and a plaster
bustnf Alfred Moore and W. G.
I Randall's nndaii ion of Vance.
Mr. W. D. Carmichael has done
a great service for the student body.
Last year he took hold of the base
ball nine and came out with a cham
pion team and a financial surplus.
This fall he has managed the foot
ball team and is three or four hun
dred dollars ahead 'of the game. He
has not solicited subscriptions to
any great extent but owes his suc
cess to careful management and
business methods. Our manager
last fall was as many, hundred dol
lars in debt as Mr. Carmichael is
ahead. In our opinion Mr. Car
michael ought to be made Secretary
of the Treasury, that is, if Mark
Hauna refuses the place.
Y. M. C. A. Officers.
The Young Mens Christian As
sociation held its meeting for the
election of officers on Tuesday night.
The retiring executive Committee

P. H. Eley, Vice-president.
F. Coker, Corresponding Secre
tary. ' " ,' -
K. Pf hoi, Recording Secretary.
A final report was read by Mr. J.
S. Wray, retiring president in
which he made many valuable sug- '
gestions for the government of the
Association during the following
term. He also advised that month- ;
ly sermons be made a permanent
feature in . Y. M. C. A. work, and ' '
reported the ' progress of various
committees of the Association.
