ON THE GRIDIRON.
Foot Ball Practice Already Begun
Foot Ball Schedule. Prospects
and Criticism. To Play Virginia
Immediately ou the 1 re-opening- o
colleg-e, Captain Osborne post
ed football notices, calling- out can-
didates for the Varsity and Scrub
teams. About thirty men respond
ed, many of them old players on
Carolina, and numerous new men
came out. The team was extreme
ly fortilnate" in again securing- the
services of Will Reynolds, ot
Princeton, who has so successfully
and ably coached our boys for the
past three years. Coach Reynolds
has alreadv trot the men ' down to
hard work and is very determined
that a good team shall represent
Carolina on the gridiron this fall.
Captain Shull of last year's team
,will be here in a few days to assist
in, coaching, as will also John
McKee ex-'OO. It is very probable
that Jayne. another great player of
1 Princeton, will occasionally come
to the Hill and lend aid in training
the men. ' ;
The most interesting thing- to all
is the assurance that we will again
tackle Virginia. It will be remem
bered that after our victory over
them in '98 all athletic relations be
tween the 1 two colleges were de
clared off on account . of misunder
"standings. The teams of both col
leges suffered much, for each team
had worked long and , hard to gain
victory over t he other and these two
colleg-es were the greatest rivals.
Finally athletic relations have been
restored and our boys will tackle
the Virginians in Norfolk on Nov.
24th, one week before Thauksgiv
ing. Below will be found the ten
tative schedule of games which
Manager Carr has handed us.
Some changes will probably be
made, but an idea can be g-ained as
to what ground we will play on. ;
.Coach Reynolds was asked to
give his opinion of the team. He
said it is too early yet to justly
I criticize the men. ; AH ot tnera
have worked ' hard, but they are a
1 little slow. The men in general
showa tendency to fumble. The
backs are slow in starting and do
not get off together, but the line is
quite strong and breaks through
The material is quite light, but
the players are very intelligent, are
determined, and the prospects are,
bright for a good team. Those
who have been out so far and the
positions they. , are playing for are

; . FIRST C AME.
The first game of the season . will
be played , Saturday against Guil
ford College. The students may
as well understand now that with ¬
out their backing, both , financial
and moral, a victorious team , is an
impossibility. Let everybody turn
out to the games and cheer our
boys on. Remember that they rep
resent the University .and do not be
too hasty to; criticize.; ! Turn; out
daily to the practices and cheer the
good plays and let the team see that
you are behind them t and surely
Carolina need have no fear. The
chief cheerer and his assistants will
be out Saturday and whether you
be Freshmen or Senior' learn the
colleg-e yells and be ready to give

Back Up the Team..
The college does not seem to real
ize the responsibility that rests up
on it... It is absolutely useless to
ry to do anything- unless the stu
dents get together and back up the
team. The ; good plays should be
applauded; and the men ought to
see that we are behind them and
will give them support. Then
again it is every man s duty to
come out and play if he possibly
can. Tuesday afternoon practice
bad to be stopped because there
were not enough men out to form
two teams. llie captain and
coach have doae all in their power
to get men out and now it is time
or the students to get together and
see that enough men are furnished,
so that full practice g-ames can be
. Unless wedo our part, everything
might as well stop rig-ht now, be
cause without proper support from
the student body, a victorious team
is an utter impossibility. If you
care for your alma mater, g-ive
those who stand for her before the
State and on foreig-n soil, your
heartiest aid and encouragement.
Its Grand Opening. Success of lt
Graduates. Changes Inthe Facul
ty. Commons. Items of Interest.
The magnificent opening- of the
University this fall is a source of
congratulation to the executive
and everyone connected with the
institution. It is the largest num
ber that has ever been enrolled at
this period of the year. The total
number, registered up to Saturday
nig-ht is 461. and new students are
arriving- daily. This enrollment
omits all duplicates, so there are
now that many boys on the Hill.
This speaks splendidly for our new
President, Dr. Venable. It shows
the grand result of his noble work
during- the. summer. It seems to
sig-uify that under the new manage
ment; .the, .University ' has started
forth on a new journey which will
not end until it shall,; have the lar
gest .enrollment of any Southern
college. It, perhaps, points to the
day when the ideal ,.of , our, beloved
President will be reached, and every
:4erving; young-.; man. in North
Carolina shall have; the benefits of
the superior education afforded
.The Freshman class numbers
119 men and the Sophomore class
105. This is .. the., lanrest Sooh
class that has ever come to the
University. It is hoped that it is
me oeginning oi a new era m
which most of the boys who enter
will, remain for graduation.
The excellent positions obtained
by our lady graduates is encour
aging-. Miss Burke has , been
elected to a professorship at Peace
Miss Jones is now teaching at St.
Mary's Miss Latham has gone to
the1 i San Antonio, Tex., Fre
Schools. Miss Leah Jones has
very desirable position at Bixline,
Mass. Miss Stockard, who grad
uated with A.M. last year, has re
cently completed and put on the
market a well written "History of
Alamance." This has been such a
success thai she has contracted to
write a similar "History of Guil
ford." This remarkable success of
its lady graduates is a great stimu
lus to the University and encour
ages it to g-ive higher education to
as many young- ladies of the State
as possible. Misses Moses, Bynum
and Cobb have returned for fur
ther work at the University.
Dr. Alexander, Professor of
Greek, has been appointed Dean of
the! Faculty to fill the place left va
cant by the resignation of Prof.
Gore. This new position is a de
served appreciation of Dr. Alexan
der's merits. He has been a most
successful teacher and we feel sure
will accomplish much in his new
capacity. Prof, uorc won the es
teem of the students during his ad
ministration and we hate to lose
him, but the supervision of the wa
ter; works and the electric light
plant has thrown such a burden on
his shoulders that it is impossible
forhim to attend to other affairs. r
Prof. Winder, Ph. D., former
assistant at' Harvard, has been elec
ted to lil I the chair of associate
professor oi chemistry. This is
the place made vacant by the pro
motion of Dr. Baskerville to the
Dr. T. A. Ruffin has been chosen
Instructor of Law in the place of
Prof. Biggs, resigned.'
In all probability, the new sys
tem of water works: .will be com
pleted by the first of November.
All the material is here or has been
shipped. The reservoir is nearly
finished and the pipes are being
laid. Work is being pushed for
ward as rapidly as possible. The
capacity will be 100,000 gallons.
There will be a fresh supply of fil
tered, water every day. This is a
much needed convenience and its
completion will be hailed with de
light by the student body.
Mr. Ph i 1 Meade, who has been
instructor at Bellevue Hospital and
has' taken a course at New York,
has bectff selected as gymnasium in
structor. The Carr Building which is now
occupied by the students, contains
42 large, well-lighted and well
heated rooms., It is given up en
tirely to dormitories.
The authorities hope to have the
Alumni Building finished this win
ter. This will add -greatly to the
beauty of the campus and be of im
mense convenience as lectur
Mr. K. K. Graham has been addr
ed to the Faculty since last year.
A series of faculty lectures has
been arranged for the ensuing year.
This moyement'did much good. last
year and is gladly welcomed
Drs. Baskerville and Alexander
are selecting a course of lectures
from the most noted speakers of
'this and other countries and expect
to give the students a rare treat
along this line.
Commons Hall is greatly im
proved this year. The number of
boarders is larger than usual and
the fare is much be'ter. It is the
duty of as many of the boys as pos
sible to board there. It is a college
titution and gives better board
f I A.
at lower prices than can oe gotten
elsewhere. It is merely a tentative
affair this year and its existence
depends upon the support it receives
from the students. It is the only
thing which keeps the price oi
board down and the students
should aid it for thy benefit of their
own pocket-book, if tor no other
