25 yard line.
For A. & M. Ramsay's playing
was conspicious, while for Carolina,
besides the all round good rushing
and defensive work, the work of
Bennett and Shull in assisting the
backs, the steady gains of Buxton
and the long runs of Copeland may
be especially mentioned. Captain
Rogers as usual played hard, fast,
and snappy ball and handled the
team in his usually strong way.
Decidedly Carolina is improving.
Let the good work go on. We meet
some strong teams soon, and we'll
need fast ball to win.

field and not a yell was given.
What's the matter? Have we for
gotten how to give a good rousing
yell to encourage the team?
President Alderman gave a delight
ful reception to the Faculty, Senior,
and professional classes. Last Wed
ensday was the 104th anniversary of
the founding of the University, and,
according to a time honored custom,
it was a general holiday. The day
was spent quietly but pleasantly, and
every body gained new strength and
vigor for the work that lies before
The evening was a very enjoyable
one. President Alderman . had an
nounced a 'few days before that he
would give a reception to the seniors,
professional schools and co-eds. All
expected a great deal of pleasure and
they were not disappointed. At the
appointed hour Dr. Alderman, assisted
by Mr. and Mrs. Toy, received the
ruests. The seniors were first intro
duced by the president of the class,
Mr. J. S. Carr Jr. Next come the
medical class introduced by Dr. Man
gum. Next the law class by Prof. J.
Crawford Biggs, following them came
the school of pharmacy introduced by
Prof. E. V. Howell. After the gen
eral receiving a short while was spent
in pleasant conversation. Everybody
was well iutertained and time passed
rapidly. Later on in the evening the
college quartette camposed of Prof.
Harrington, Dr. Mangum and Messrs
H. Anderson and J. K. Dozier, sang
several beautiful selections. Each
was a gem and the hearty applause
showed the deep appreciation of the
listeners. Scarcely had the echoes of
their music died away when cake and
cream began to be served. This fea
ture too was a perfect success. The
refreshments were exceptionally fine
and were well served. They were pre
pared by Mrs, Hunter and that means
they were .the best that could be had.
In a short while the evening had
come to a happy close. The Univer
sity was ready to begin a new year.
Her day of rest and pleasure had filled
her with zeal and gave her new life
for her duties.

Medal for the Inter-Collgiate De
baters. The Chamber of Commerce of
Raleigh has recently appropriated a
sum not to exceed $40.00, fur a med
al or other suitable token, to be giv
en to the college whose representa
tives win the inter-collegiate debate,
in Raleigh Thanksgiving day.
This contest is between Trinity
and Wake Forest, and the medal is
to be held by the winning college as
a badge of championship until some
other college wins it from it.
It is gratifying indeed to see the
people of the state taking such an
active interest in the literary work
of these two colleges and endeavoring
to encourage these colleges to devel
op and turn out as many good speak
ers as possible. People are realiz
ing more and more -the need of rep
resentative men, men who are not
only educated, but men who can use
their education to some practical
advantage. The whole country is
crying aloud for men to teach the
people-for good speakers, They
are wanted in the pulpit, They are
wanted on the stump. They are
wanted at the bar. They are want
ed in the halls of Congress. There
is an abundance of room at the lop,
for men who know a few things,
and who can express them accurate
ly, clearlv, and forcibly.
Nothing affords a greater stim
ulus for good work in the literary
societies than inter-society and in
ter collegiate contests. They cre
ate a spirit of rivalry that is invig
orating, and spurs every man to do
his best. We feel it in our contests
between the societies, ami in our
contest with the University of
Georgia, arid we hope the day is not
far distant when these contests will
be carried on between every college
and preparatory school in the state.
