( TOOT BALL PROSPECTS.
Bright Out-look for a Winning
Team. Old Men Back. Good
The prospects for a. winnings team
this fall are good. About thirty
men are applying for the team and
the majority of these men have to
some extent, had some experience
in playing- the game. All these
men have gone to work with a
steady determination, which if kept
up will bring success to the Univer
sity this fall.
As yet, no hard work has been
undergone by the candidates for
the team. Going through a few
plays, getting start, and running
for wind is the only ,eevcise that
has engaged the men for the last
week. All the men seem to rea
lize that work is before them and
are fully aware that nothing but
hard, steady work and strict at
tendance upon practice will get
them a position upon the team.
Each applicant must get clown to
work in dead earnestness and even
if his chances forfring. a place,
seem slim at first must not despair
but keep on trying. Success will
come to that man in the end.
The Advisory Committee has ap
pointed Mr., J?. O. Rogers tempor
ary Captain of the team, in place
of Mr. Belden last year's Captain
who does not return to College this
The following men of last year's
team have been out for the last
week Rogers, Coxe. Bennett,
Graves, Buxton, Osborne, Shull,
Kluttz and Howell. Among the
new me n are the follow
i n g : Lane, Mclver, Lambeth,
Brem, Keruer, Bellamy H., Hayes,
Makly, Eskridge, Pickard, Flum
mer, Gant, Crawford, McRae,
Copeland, Harris, Hall, and Mc
lver! There is good material in
the last named crowd and it ought
to be developed into such shape as
to fill the vacancies that are made
by several of our last year's team
Messrs. Gregory and Hurley
who played End and Guard re
spectively on our '95 team are in
the Law Class and will doubtless
play with the team this Fall. The
addition of these gentlemen along
with Prof. E. V. Howell, who
played half for us last year will
strengthen' the team to a great ex
tent. The whole college as well as the
friends of the University are de
lighted that Mr. VV. A. Reynolds
has been secured to coach our team
again this year. The team that he
put forth last year against Virginia
shows what he is al'dc to do. With
our prospect eycfi ho gloomy at the

take in consideration the lightness
of the team. He enjoys the full
confidence of the student body and
we have no doubt but that on ac
count of good coaching we will end
this season with a record that the
University may be proud of.
Though our prospect is good and
we have a coach who is full7 equal
to the task of putting out a good
team, still we must not be over con
fident. To win the championship
of the South it is necessary that the
team work hard and do its dut)
No positions are secure and no
one who was on last year's team
need think that his place is secure.
Each place is open and the best
man for the place will fill it.
Nothing makes a team work
harder than to know that the col
lege is behind them for all it is
worth. So men, go out every af
ternoon and show the team that
you take interest in them. Ap-
'.ViUui every good play. The men
deserve it and should have it.
Finally let every player work
and let every student back the team
to the best of their ability and suc
cess and victory will be ours.
Y. M. C. A. RECEPTION.
Changes Since May.
It is gratifying indeed to note the
many changes and improvements
that have been made both in college
arid in the village during the- siimire.
In the old field in front of the depot
a large cotton factory is being built.
The trenches are already dug, and
the brick are already on the ground
ready to lay the foundation.
One of the dilapidated old houses
on Franklin Street opporite . Year-
by's drug store has been removed,
and a large two story mercantile es
tablishment put in its place. A
handome eight room dwelling has
been erected on the vacant lot back
of pickard's livery stables.
And this is not all. The "shanty"
once known as "Chapel Hill Hotel"
is now a thing of the past, and in its
place stands a large new hotel, pro
vided with an observatory, electric
lights and many other modern ar
rangements. In addition to all this,
the streets are being graded, and
trimmed and put in good condition.
Many changes have been made, too
around college. The library has
been remodled, and made much more
attractive and convenient. The
steps have been removed from the
west end of the building, and a neat
little balcony put in their place.
The entrance to the bath rooms
has been closed up, and a new one
made on the south side of the build
ing. The entrance to the Library
is now at the cast end, and the read
ing room is inside the Library.
Surely, this is a decided improve
ment over the old arrangement and
one that all the stedents will an-'

ing for the Freshmen. Earlv in
September of every year the Y. M
C. A. gives a reception for the
benefit of the new students in order
to give them an opportunity to meet
the Faculty and their families, and
also to get acquainted with as many
as possible of the older students.
The one given Friday was a de
lightful one, and was much enjored
by all present.
i After the new students had been
formally introduced to the Faculty.
Mr. T. G. Pearson, president of
the Y. M. C. A., made a short, but
very appropriate speech, welcoming
the young men to the Hill, . and in
viting them to join in. the work of
the Y. M. C. A. President Alder
man, Dr. Battle and Dr. Hume were
introduced in turn, and each enter
tained the audience for several min
utes in his own peculiarly charming
style. Dr. Battle's jokes are al
ways enjoyed by the students, both
"fresh" and "unfresh". We feel
proud, too, to know that we have
in our Y. M. C. A. one of the foun-
denvr-f the-first .. College Af.'-.ocia
tion, for it was our much beloved
professor, Dr. Hume, who drafted
the constitution of the first College
Association. Mr. H. H. Home, a
former student of the University,
also made a short speech, and Rev.
D. J. Currie made an address of
welcome in behalf of the Pastors of

that they were enjoyed. It is suffi
cient to know that they were pre
pared by Mrs. Hunter, that most
excellent manager of Commons Hall.
That means that they were as good
as could be had, and, judging from
the rapidity with which cake and
cream disappeared, that fact was

their colors by connecting them
