THE OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION.
UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, February 8th. 1898.
Our Coach. Capt. Winston's Critl
Considering: the inclement weather
of the past week the base-ball practice
has been kept up with remarkable
regularity. Capt. Winston has had
the candidates out when the thermom
eter was almost at the freezing- point.
This is the stuff that makes a team.
The persistent effort and determina
tion which have been manifested by
both captain and players during- the
past week can bring- no result other
than a winning- team.
Our base-ball coach promises to be
as g-ood as our last year's foot-ball
coach. - He is "on to" the liner points
of the game and displays the same
zealous enthusiasm which was so char
acteristic of his foot-ball coaching.
Though he has been on the Hill only
a short time the players have already
received some very valuable hints
which were entirely new to them. No
coach ever enjoyed more continued and
wide spread popularity at U. N. C.
than Will A. Reynolds.
The men who have done the best
batting during- the past week, are Bel
den, Rogers, Lawsou, McKee, Graves,
Hume and Woodard.
Rogers hits recklessly. Woodard
leaves the field before the practice is
over and his improvement is largely
impeded by aversion to activity. (It
has been sug-g-ested that he doesn't
possess much energy and wont exert
himself for fear he'll lose what he has.)
Hines pulls away from the plate too
much when batting-. Alston slug's
carelessly. Graves hits too hard.
Tate is conspicuous by his absence
from the field. White tries to bat
both ways, ; Men who are said to be
ambi-dextrous are usually no g-ood ei
ther way. Webb stands too close to
the plate and. "chops". He should
throw his body into the blow. Gra
ham chops slightly. He is still irreg
ular abont coming- out but is handi
caped by a sprained finger. Lawson
is a promising- pitcher but
is careless of his arm. lie should not
attempt to throw speealy balls until
the weather moderated Williams is
playing- good ball, iavis is a promis
ing man but lacks confidence. John
Carr has become a candidate since the
last list was published.
Capt. Winston expresses much satis
faction with the general improvement
of the players. ;
Dr. Alderman in the Old

In order that the students might
know his whereabouts, and the histor
ic places he woiild visit before return
lngto his dutie4 at the University,
he gave the following account of his
intended travels :
"Our ship takds land first at Gibral

We go into Naples and Pompeii and a

We then go to Constantinople, the

we shall remain about eight days.
Then we shall go through central

These events will take place on
April ()th, if Virginia accepts our
challenge for an inter-collegiate
meet here on April 23rd. If Vir
ginia does not accept, the inter-class
events will take place April 23rd.
The invitation was sent to the
University of Virginia some time
ago but no reply has been received.
We suppose she's working the same
game sheworked last year"-training
her team to see what the pros
pects are for winning the events be
fore she answers the invitation..
We notice that only one class
captain has been elected and he has
not called for candidates.
The winners of the inter-class
events will compose the Varsity
The movement inaugurated by
Dr. Alderman by which we are
to have some preacher to spend a
week on the Hill each month was
begun by Dr. Robert Strange. Dr.
Strange is the well known rector of
St.' James Church of Wilmington
and being an alumnus of the Uni
versity, having been a classmate of
Dr. Alderman, was well fitted to
open the new movement which means
so much to our life here. While
here he was a guest at the hospita
ble home of Dr. Manning.
On Sunday morning Dr. Strange
preached in the Episcopal church on
"Faith" to a large crowd of students,-and
Sunday night iu the Col
lege Chapel he preached on "Justi
fication by Faith." During the
week he held chapel services in the
morning and led the services of the
Y. M. C. A. at night. His talks
on these occasions were of a good
sound practical nature from which
much good may be derived. -
Thursday night lie preached his
last sermon before the Y. M. C. A.
on "The way, the truth, and the
life." ' "
While here he had the use of the
President's office where he was ac
cessible to all students especially
those who wished to consult him on
any points whatever.
! This movement means a great
deal to the student life here and it
is to be hoped that the students will
not be slow to take advantage of it.
There jwill be a meeting of the
Board of Tar Heki Editors in the
Math room at 4 o'clock on Wednesday
afternoon- A full attendance is ear
nestly desired. ;

Four Years' Progress.
t-tt ' 4 TT T
we wno are nere at the univer
sity do not so much notice the many7
changes that are going on every day,
and the steady advancement that is
being mjjde both in the internal and
external affairs of the University.
So smoothly and noiselessly goon
the various improvements one after
another that a senior is startled to
look back and view the amazing
changes that have been wrought
since he was a freshman.
In the first place, the presidency
has changed hands. The attend
ance has' been increased at least
a athird, co-eels nave been ad
mitted, the curriculum has been
rearranged and added to, the
elective system has been extended,
and March examinations have been
abolished. The Medical course has
been extended to two years, and a
new professorship added to that
department. The school of phar
macy7 has been established, and a
pharmaceutical laboratory7 fitted up.
The chair of Pedagogy has been es
tablished. An Associate Professor
of Classical Philology and an Ad
junct Professor of History7 and Po
litical Economy7 have been elected.
Besides these, assistants have beer,
added to the Law School and Geo
logical department; and to several of
the laboratories. A course in Orni
thology7 has been recently7 instituted
Now look at the outward changes.
The electric litrht plant has been
put in, commons hall established,
Memorial Hall turned into a gym
nasium, the biological laboratory
enlarged, the chapel renovated, the
Cooberative store established, two
tracks have been built, the Iufirma
ry has been erected, the dissecting
hall enlarged, ground broke for the
Alumni Building, dome erected over
the well, colonial door put in South
Building, caps and gowns have been
adopted by the senior class, and a
deposite fee has been required.
It is but natural that the town
should share in this growth. Hills
boro Street has been built up,
Chapel Hill High School establish
ed, the post office enlarged, a new
store built, a new livery stable
built, the D. K. E. hall erected,
and three handsome residences have
been built on Main Street. Pick
ard's Hotel is being torn down, and
soon a handsome new structure will
occupy its place. We were about
to forget to mention that new
second-hand rails have been laid
and worn out and more needed on
the Southern Perilous.
A Full Review and Criticism.
The University Magazine for
February appeared yesterday with
more than the beauty of her new
Spring gown for recommendation.
She displays a well regulated bal
ance of g-ood subject matter. His
tory, science and fiction figure on
her pages with sandwich of that
modern kind of verse whose prime
glory lies in obscurity.
' The issue opens with a handsome
picture of the Alumni Building,
whose basal outline greets us daily
and passes through a few explana
tory and descrigtive remarks to a
very charming exposition of the
"Harvard Man" by Herman Har
rel Home of '05. Mr. Home is
now preparing at Harvard for the
Baptist Ministry. He" writes of the
past traditions and the present
ideals which unite to make the type
we call the Harvard Man "demo
cratic, cosmopolitan, tolerant."
"The new has furnished material
to the old. The old has furnished
a plan for the new."' The brilliant
record made here bv this former
son of the University is -well re
membered and his achievements
Part II of the Physicians in the
Convention of I8bl adds nine short y
biographical sketches to that collec
tion of valuable historic matter.
This important work is the fruit of
earnest original research.
In the line of Science, or of Na
ture if one would speak more sim
ply, we have the subjective as well
as the objective represented. The
comparision of two widely differing
treatments of man's relation to the
universe is admirably handled under
the title of "Job and Sartor Resar
tus." Through the dramatic epic
and the quaint biography with their
different dates and places runs a
striking similarity of experience
and the two truth-seekers are shown
to have made the same journey.
Objectively, Nature is represent
ed by a delightfully personal sketch
of bird life entitled "Neighbors of
Mine." The writer lends to his
"neighbors" or finds in them an
individuality which provokes fur
ther interest than that given to a
touch of color in humanity's back
ground. They become a race with
ethics of their own. The paper
shows more than a nearness of na
ture's heart. It is the outcome of
study and untiring observation.
The type of fiction differs radi
cally from the last issue. It is now
highly dramatic one almost mur
murs as he reads, "Condensed Nov
"Two Autumn Scenes" is a tale
of exaggerated honor. The leading
character shoots his friend by ac
cident. A year later he renounces ,
the love of the woman who was to
have been his friend's wife. The
climaxing is good and constrasts of
light and of shade cleverly made.
The weather setting, which follow
the mood of the story is quite effec
