CAROLINA VS. GUILFORD
Carolina Wins From Guild
ford by a Score of 18-0.
Our first game of the season was
played on the home grounds Satur
day afternoon. The scoredoes not
indicate the strength of our team by
any means since so many of our reg
ular players were disabled. The
game was characterized by fumbles,
off-side plays and forward passes.
But for all that the 'Varsity played
a very satisfactory game consider
ing that some of the players had
lined up for the first time. Two
fifteen minute halves were played.
The special features were few
but Howell's long runs around right
end and Rogers' tackling can be no
ted for Carolina and Taylor's line
bucking, Faust's playing in the line
and Moyer's work at right end for
A good crowd was present, ladies

few more 'Varsity yells would not
have gone amiss.

A Good Selection.

Martin Captain of the Scrub Term.

well up on the game. He well de
serted the place and we are glad to
see the Committee reward his efforts,
What is the Matter with Magazine
: Th Editor-in-Chief of the Magazine
tells us that contributions from the
Board of Editor are slow in coming-in.
What is the trouble? We
have a good strong board, men who
are perfectly capable of writing and
writing well. When a man accepts a
position on the Magazine he accepts
something besides a mere honor. He
is expected to write and to get others
to write. Let . the Magazine Editors
note this and get to work. Write
themselves and get their friends to
write. But they should see the Edi
tors at work first. The Editors have
assumed a responsibility and have n
right to shirk it. The responsibility
is to important a one to be placed up
on men , who are not going to bear it
, It is almost time for the first issue
of the Magazine and the students are
looking forward eagerly to this first
number' Now hustle and make it a
g-ood one in every respect. Dont leave
all the work for the Chief. Dont ex
pect him to tell you what to write a
bout.? He has his hands full in settl
ing what his own articles are to be a
We offer this merely as a reminder
and in perfectly g-ood spirit. But it
They Take Well.
v Wiicrever a University man goes he
impresses those with whom he come:;
in contact with a certain air of superi

strated in the person of Mr. W. J.
Nichols '97 who has just been nom
inated by the Democratic party of Pitt
county, as their representative for the
next legislature. All of us who know
him extend him congratulations for
this degree of success, and trust that
his nomination will lead to his elect

In last week's Tar Heel the
piece headed "An Unsatisfied Need"
was partly misunderstood. We did
not mean to convey the false idea
that the University had no teacher
of expression, in the true meaning
of the word. For we are blessed
n having an excellent one. But
the object of the piece was to im
press upon those in authority the
fact that we didn't have a graduate'
of some school of oratory in the fac
ulty and that the boys fully recog-;
nized our need for one.
We give below the schedule for
foot-ball games for '98, as reported
