Carolina wins easily the game
layed here Saturday with Mary-
and, by piling- up four runs in the
rst inning-. But had the visitors
ot allowed so many passed balls in
his inning- it is certain that the
ame would have been more inter
esting-. The game was without
eatures up to the seventh inning-,

liree men on bases and it looked as
f they would tie the score, if not
jvin the game, but Lawson's beau-
iful pitching saved the day for

His Letter to Hon. R. H. Battle.
May 5th, 1900.
Hon. R. H Battle,
Secretary Board of Trustees.
Raleigh, N. C,
My Dear Mr. Battle:
I beg to offer to the Board of
Trustees my resignation as" Presi
dent of the Uuiversity of North
Carolina to take effect on June 15tb,
1900. I take this step after patient
study in order that I may accept the
presidency of Tulane University of
Louisiana to which I was elected on
April 5th 1900. This decision has
been reached in the belief that it is
just to my professional life and
to opportunities for educational
service that I make the change. I
have tried very hard to do the right
things along large lines and to e
liminate from this problem the
commonplace and the sordid. If
I have seemeed to take undue
time to it is because time has
been needed to see even with partial
vision the path to tread. I have a
a firm belief that every thoughtful
man who has this matter in mind at
all will know something of the
hurt of heart and mind through
which I have passed, and the con
flict of duty and emotion in which I
have struggled. It is the hardest
thing I have yet had to do in my life.
It is needless to say my heart hasbeen
touched by the evidences of appre
ciation, all too generous and unde
served, from the people of the State,
for whom I have labored since
manhood, from your honorable body
so helpful and just to me always,
from the body of Alumni and from
the faculty and students of this in
stitution in whose service I , have
known the joy of striving. I count
this appreciation of the finest re
ward of a life of some toil and strug
gle for the upbuilding of my native
With assurances of my personal
esteem I have the honor to remain,
Very sincerely yours,
Edwin A. Alderman.
