Carolina vs. V. P. I. Neither Side
Scores. Magnificent Game j
and Brilliant Playing.
One of the most brilliant games
of football ever seen on the gridiron
here was the hotly contested game
Saturday afternoon between the
University and Virginia Polytech
nic Institute of Blacksburg. Every
inch of ground was stubbornly
fought for. The line bucking1 bf
both elevens was hard and low and
the defensive work was superb.
Each team did a great deal of punt
ing" and the Virginians came out
ahead in kicking-. !
A large crowd witnessed the
game, vvhih was intensely exciting1
i i it
ana great entnusiasm was mani
fested. Few end runs were made
by either team, mostly line pla?s
being- used. The work of both
lines was fine, each man playing his
position for all it was worth.
Graves and Bennett were both un
well, but grittily stuck in the game
and did their usual strong- work.
Berkely at half was the star of the
game and Foust was a power at
tackle. Individual praise would be
useless. Every man on both teams
did his duty and did it well, For
Blacksburg-, Coxe's work at tackle,
and Carpenter's - at end were the
features, while the whole eleven
.did good playing". The two elev
ens are about evenly matched and
there is very little difference in the
weights of the players. The offen
sive playing was stubbornly resist
ed by each side and the defensive
work could not be improved upon.
There was very little fumbling
and the playing at all times was
fast and furious. The day was a
little warm for football, but the
men were gritty and stood up well,
cot a man being replaced until near
the end of the last half when Ebbs
succeded McRae at half, i

Umpire Mr. Huffard of N. C. A. & M.
Referee Mr. Meade.
The Virginia boys were "tickled
to death" at the result of the game
and they say it is by far the best
game ever put up by them. Both
teams showed clearly the great
amount of work they have done and
the good training they have re
ceived. The visitors drove through the
country to Durham where they
spent the night, and returned home
Sunday, much delighted with their
North Carolina trip.
DEPARTURE OF THE TEAM.
Vattderbilt, Tennessee and Sewa-
nee Our Enemies.
This morning at one o'clock, the
foot ball team left in their special
car on their Southern and Western
trip to be gone till Tuesday. They
go directly to Knoxville, where on
Thursday they tackle the Universi
ty of Tennessee. On Saturday we
ine up against Vanderbilt at Nash
ville, and on Sunday the boys will
go to Atlanta and play S.wanee
Monday. We have every reason for
reposing the utmost confidence in
our players. In Saturday's game
they clearly demonstrated that they
an play good and fast ball. They
lave'been trained well and we ex
ect them to defend their Alma Ma
ter well. It is true we start out un
der a handicap. Graves is barely
able to use his leg; and the loss of
Graves means much. The men who
go on the trip are as follows:
Councill, Brem, Phtfer, Kankin,
Bennett, Foust, Roberts, Osborne,
mathers, Makely, Graves E.,
Graves L., McRae, Berkley, Ebbs,
Carr, Donnelly and Coach Reynolds
nd Herman Weil.
