Good Practice During Last Week.
The bad weather for the past
week has to some? extent, inter tera.
with the regular afternoon practice
the men have not been idle, as
a good many spent the time in the
o-ymnasium and the, pitchers have
iph ovt.t.ino- their arms in a better
The Varsity as a whole has dev
eloped ! wonderfully and under the
excellent coaching- of Capt. Lawson
will soon be ready for their first
freal game. If the Varsity come
lout at the fend of the season with a
Vood record it will be , due largely
Jto the untiring efforts of the Cap
Itain. His individual coaching- is
lalready beginning to tell on the team
jwork and his playing is an example
hot every man to follow.
J Graves is undoubtedly a bettei
'catcher than tie was last season and
(works his pitcher well. He is"
'(doing- good, hard hitting but his
(throwing is still" wild. Battle's
jcurves are improving and his speed
!is g-ood, but he has no control, and
lloes not back up his infielders in the
Iproper way. The same fault can
iie found with Wilcox.
I Holt is getting off some of . his
kults but is not vet as fast as he
lliould be. His hitting is better
'JWmpft hitting fairlv well, but
lie is too anxious tojiit and does not
Iwait for his pitcher. Let him col
lect this fault and he will be a safe
putter. Carr is playing good ball
at second and is covering his bag
jwell. Woodard is doing steady
work at short, but has been away
'for the last few days. Lambeth
jhas improved wonderfully at the
jbat and his fielding is above the
begun this week and the team is
using its signals. ' A :; great ' fault
may be found in the bunting- of the
men in general. When they are
told to bunt it is to advance the men
on the bases and not tverv time for
the batter to make first. The men
do all right in batting practices, but
when they get in the g-ame they are
too anxious to get off and conse
quently put the ball in the Infield-
1 he Captain requests that the
students do not crowd the field as
it necessarily interferes with the
players. Everyone can see just as
well if they will stay away from
the side lines.

Ifielders more and move with the
iball. Whitley is a good fielder and
ftase-runner, but needs more prac
tice with the bat. Oldham has been
I . -
jlaid out for the last few days on ac
count of an accident. , Richardson
has gone to the out-field. He is a
ifast man and has ba?e ball in him
but can't be depended on until ho
settles down to steady ball.
Grahman,' A. is doing better hit-
tincr, but his bunting is poor. He
s fast fielder and ought to make a
j?ood man. Carr, W. is oueof the
Infest men on the scrubs and if he
p'ould improve his batting he would
have a good chance for the Varsity.
Capeheart's great fault is slug-jrjng-.
If he would not try to hit so;, hard,
jte would feel the ball of tenet1. v' Fet
ter has the same faul t.

jand must improve. Brem makes a
pod short, but is too slow. He
jieeus to move around more :tnd

Notes by the Instructor. Pinal

In jttie past few weeks of bad weath
er the Track Team has not been
able to g-et much practice, it is
easily seen that we must practice in
doors daily and take advantage of
whatever fine days may come, rath
er than continue the present, much
interrupted manner of training-.
The Captain of the Track Team
expects from now on to meet his men
claily at 4:45 P. M. at the Gynina
sium;;' rain or shine, let every
candidate come out and train stead i
ly: we have only six weeks to get
into Conditioivnow, and much must
be accomplished in that short time.
The instructor advises each man
to train in his special event from
now on and not to choose more than
three, as little good results from
trying to do to many different thing's

The regular monthly meeting- of
the Shakespeare Club was held
last evening in the Chapel. The
honored President, Dr. Hume'
called the meeting to order at 7;30.
He also made some very pertinent
and interesting remarks on the
"Personality of Shakespeare."
Mr. Francis M. Osborne read
the first paper of the evening- on
"Shakespeare's Self as Disclosed in
His Sonnets." In these sonnets
the great dramatist shows his in
most self more clearly than in any
thing else he has written, we can
see something of his own personali
ty, of Shakespeare the man and ar
Mr.'F. B. Watkins next read a
very carefully prepared paper com- '
paring Comma II Vans Plaira of
George Sand with Shakespeare's
"As You Like It." . He pointed
out the diffep-mce between the orig

pecially in the respective treatment
of the Melancholy Jacques. He,

i ne writer recalls xnat some
time last fall a meeting of all ten
nis players and any others interest
ed in the sport was held to form a
Tetyiis Association for the purpose
of getting up a Tennis Tournament,
but the idea seemed to lose all its
vitality as soon as the officers were
elected. ' What is the matter?" We
are sure that the promoters of the
meeting- were earnest in their ef
forts to arouse interest in the game,
but their enthusiasm evaporated
very speedily. We see no reason
why the proposed tournament
would not have been a succes, nor
do we see why one held in the near
future should not be successful. A
few years ago such tournaments
were annual affairs, in which the
whole college were greatly interest
ed and by them players were devel
oped who enabled Carolina to de
feat her Southern opponents and to
make a good showing- against the
larger institutions of the North.
Interest in the game should not be
allowed to flag- for while it cannot
compete in excitement with base-
bailor football vet,' it is a delig-ht

Mr. Whitehead Kluttz. read the
final paper of the evening. His
subject was"The Fjder and Young

Our Old Kingsfolk." His paper

enjoyable as were the other papers
of the evening.
