Tennis has not received a square
deal at the University. It is the
sole branch of athletics in which
discouragement has been offered to
the player instead of encourage
ment. Even the man who o;oes into
the grym and works faith full' to
master two or three dozen' tricks, or
the man who goes out on the track
and runs around it a few times,
provided he run fast enough, re
ceives the reward of an N. C,, but
the tennis-player has neither decent
courts to practice upon nor an N.
C. as a reward.
The objection to offering- a tennis
N. C. has been made that the ten
nis players have not shown an in
terest worthy of such honor. In
comparison with tennis there was
absolutely no interest in g-ymna-sium
team work when the g-ymna-si
urn team was given a trainer and
offered the N . C . ; i n com parison
with tennis the interest taken in
track athletics is small, yet the
track team' has had both training
and reward for some years. Then
was no interest evinced in the liter
ary life of. the college, still the Odd J
Number Club was organized to
stimulate interest, and has succeed
ed. Very little attention was
paid to scholarship before the ad
vent of the Phi Beta Kappa. Ten
nis it seems is an exception. It is
not an athletic sport and no rules
work when applied to it.
We do not believe that tennis
monograms should be given, indis
criminately. .We suggest that the
tennis N. C. be offered and a
standard of excellence be set as in
the case of the gymnasium and
track teams. There has been no
earnest self-denying- training for
the tennis team in the past, ; it is
true, but give this impetus and
watch the change. It is only just
that tennis be recognized in the
list of college athletics, ard that
the tennis player have his reward in
view as much as the track or gym
get started wrong between the
ag;es of twelve and fifteen merely
through losing interest in the
things at which they are forced to
stick against their will. Later,
when too old to control, they are free
but aimless. If these boys could be
taken in hand early enough and giv
en manual, training- in the lines best
suited to them, many a reform
ing in later life would, be rendered
unnecessary. Could the reformatory
accomplish this it would be a good
Ope ning on each of the landings
of the stairways in the older build
ings on the campus, the Old East,
South, and Old West, are Windows.
In almost ever' instance these wiur
dows are situated almost immediate
ly at the foot of a steep flight of
steps, and are larg-e enough to admit
with ease the passage of the body of
a grown man. Strips of timber
were once nailed accross these window-frames
to prevent' the chance
of anyone's falling through but
these have been torn away, through
vandalism, perhaps. Neverthe
less they should be replaced in order
to avoid even the possibility of an ac
cident that might result in the loss
of the life of a student.
Why should Carolina not support
a dramatic club? Nearly all of
the larger colleges and universities
support such, org-anizations, which
are productive of much entertain
ment, and pay financially as well.
The theatricals presented by such
college clubs are in great demand in
the cities of the sections throug-h
which the colleges are known. At
Carolina the preparation for and
presentation of the plays would be
especiall' valuable in serving to
break the monotony of the winter
months. There is plenty of good
material, too, for amateur theatri
cals on the Hill.- All that it needs
THE proposition of instituting- a
state reformatory is well , worth
considering. While we are not in
favor of raising any boy in a jail, a
certain amount of restraint in youth
mig-ht save, many men from jail
later on. Many boys not inherent
ly vicious, but simply full of life,
