was the first game played on th
new Athletic Park, which has been
rolled and levelled nicely and which
makes a very excellent gridiron.
A large number of students and
townsoeoole were out. but not as
many students as should have been.
The game, of course, was not exci
ting, as the visitors were in no way
a match for our boys, but enough
could be seen to show that Caroli
na has a winning eleven. The
playing was fast throughout all the
game and the interference and de
fence was very good. Our great
est fault was in too much fumbling,
though much could be forgiven pn
account of the very oppressive af

The result of the first game is
very gratifying. It shows that our
bo7s can play well, and though the
weather made the game slow at
times, yet on the whole it was a
fast game and some really nice
playing was done.
From now on our players will
have to work harder than , before
and correct in earnest any faults
and weaknesses they may have. ;
What may be classed as the
features of the game are Osbornes's,
Glenn's and Oldham's long runs and
the beautiful interference afforded
them at times and for the visitors
the playing of Rosson and Rob
The management has arranged a
schedule of big games and to do any
thing at all against them a very
formidable team is necessary.
Now is also the time for the
student.; to stand up like men and
do their parts. Cheer the good
plays and by your presence, not
only at practices, but at match
games, give inspiration to the men,
for all are working for the same
end, the success of alma, mater
against any foe. Many of the new
students did not know the yells
Saturday, and this is not as it should
be. Learn them immediately and
then be able to join in with the
others and cheer the University
eleven as it should be cheered.
The line-up was as follows:
Rosson (Capt.) C. Council
Watkins R.G. Brem & Means
Carroll L,.G. Rankin & Phifer

One of those delightful breaks in
the monotony of college life in a
small village occurred Friday
night, in the shape of an informal
dance given by the 2.A.E. Fraterni
ty to their young lady friends. To
say that Chapel Hill "had gathered
there her Beauty, and her Chivalry,
and bright the lamps shone o'er
fair women and brave men," would
be to quote a trite expressjon of the
joys of an occasion like this, so we
will only say that when the magic
hour of twelve approached, and
when Utley's hand was grasping
the throttle controlling the electric
lights, there was no participant but
who wished the evening were to be
spent again in gliding through the
dainty measures of the waltz, or
the two step.
Although it will be impossible
for the University team to meet any
of the State teams on the gridiron
this fall, it is very gratifying to
know that athletic relations will
not be entirely severed between us
and several of the State teams.
The Freshman class eleven will
play the teams from Horner and
Bingham. The first game will be
played in Oxford, Oct 20, ' and then
both Horner and Bingham will
come to the Hill and meet our boys.
The Fresh class team will in this
way represent the College in its re
lation to the State preparatory
schools and its record will be in a ,
sense the University's record.
Captain Cocke will practise his
men daily and it is probable that it
will be a very strong eleven, well
able to meet its opponents. Mana
ger Payne has not yet definitely
arranged all the! matters, but the
games will be played, and twe of
them here. Therefore in every
way we must encourage and aid in,
making tne team oi me ciass. ui
1904 a very successful one.
