The Team's Lifeless Work,
What is the trouble with the
practice games for the past few
days? The men have, as every
one has noticed, been playing with
out the slightest snap; the whole
work lacks life. It is true that
Capt. Lawson - has been greatly
missed for the past few days and
that some of the men are under the
weather, but those that do go out
should do so with the intention of
playing to the' best of their ability.
Snappy playing is .very issential
now as there will very likely be a
erame Saturday with WiiiUett In-
stitute and the men should get to
oeth'er before the first game.
On account of the listless plac
ing very little progress can be no
ticed. in the individual -playing.. '
Graves' catching is good but his
throwing now is anything but
Bennett still holds hi place at
lirst and is playing it fairly well,
but he should cover his ground
faster. His hitting is greatly im
proved, but he is now slugging too
Willcox is doing good work in
the box and is developing very good
speed, but his batting is still weak.
Battle's curves and speed are all
right, but he must learn to control
them better. Too many men

the same fault. Shaw is wild with
his balls now and then and should
Carr J. should improve the cov
ering of his bag. His fielding and
batting are all right, but when he
gets at his bag he falls off.
"Woodard has had charge of the
team since the captain has been
away and he has carried out his
part well, but an unnecessary
amount of fumbling is done at
The outfielders especially are not
playing their usual game. Each
one has been taking his turn at
muffing a couple of fly balls.
Let the men wake up more and
do better work. The Editor never
likes to criticise so, but it is neces

the ball very well, but is trying to

life in his fielding, at the bat he is

food field, the same can be said of

There will very likely be a game
on the grounds Saturday, if so let
every man in college come out to
"cheer the boys up a bit." They
will need it at every gsme and es

the new suits are here and the team
will make a pretty show in them
Why not have a pretty show in the
T H E C A EE BUILDING-
Trough the courtesy of the University Record we are enabled to present this week an excellent cut of the Carr
Building, now nearly completed, the generous gift of one of the University's staunchest friends, General Julian S.
Carr. The cut gives a good idea of the building's graceful and symmetrical outlines but cannot do justice to its har
monious color effects.
The design is the work of Messrs. Pearson and Ashe, of Raleigb,and the contractors who have in charge the
work Messrs. Zachary and Zachary, of Raleigh. The building is in the Italian Renaissance style, of grey pressed
brick with terra cotta and granite trimmings. The roof is of slate trimmed with red tiles. The building is three
stories in height with a basement in which is being installed a complete system of the most modern heating appara,-
tus. It is to be lighted by electricity and to have every improvement in sanitary and ventilating devics. It contains
forty two dormitories, and large reading and lounging halls and six lavatories. The interior is to be handsomely
finished in hard woods. '"
The exterior is now complete with the exception of the trimmings to the roof and the building will be ready
for occupancy by the beginning of the next term. It is placed on a slight knoll just east of and facing the library.
The completion of this building- and of the Alumni Building, upon which work is at last being actively pressed, will
add greatly. to the beauty of the campus and will give more room to the University whose marvelous growth in the
past fevy years has severely taxed its accommodations.
score they make so as to set a pace
for the subsequent games?
So every man must come out pre
pared to do his part when he is
called on to root for the team.

The Alumni Princetonian is to
pass out of the hands ol under
graduates, and the name is to be
changed to the "Princeton Alumni

charming stories of Princeton life,
is to be editor-in-chief.
Preliminary Contests Last Saturday.
Oi last Saturday iustead of
the regular practice the track team
candidates engaged in a practice
contest. For some unaccountable
reason all the candidates did not
take part and the contest did not in
consequenee accomplish all that
was hoped for. The idea of the in
structor in holding this contest was
not to give an exhibition of the
track work but the meet was intend
ed primarily for the benefit of those
who expect to take part in the con
test which comes off March 27, the
contest which will decide who shall
represent the University in the meet
at Horner's School. A track man
can never tell what he can do until
he has taken part in a match of this
kind. It is sincerely regretted that
the men did not all take this view
of the matter and in this way get
all they could out of the occasion.
The contest to be held on Satur
day will decide who will make up
the first 'Varsity Track Team ever
sent by this University to compete
with other Colleges in the state.
Those who have secured positions
on this team will then elect a cap
tain and begin a still more vigorous
practice before the day of the Inter
collegiate meet, April 20.
On certain days following next
Saturday other oppertunities will
be given to men who have not won
placeson the team in that day's con
test to compete with the 'Varsity
men for their places.
In last Saturday's contest the
events were mainly running and
hurdling. The records made were
not discouraging but must be large
In the hundred yards dash
Osborne seems to have had the ad
vantage and Crosvvell ran a close
second. Curtis, Cowles. Berkeley
and Gudger also ran the hundred.
Lucas led the quarter of a mile
dash. His finish showed lack of
training and his second and third
shouid have pushed him more close-
