Program Presented Above the Av
erage Audience Small but
The John Thomas Concert Com
pany, consisting of John Thomas,
humorist and reader, Ellen Thomas,
violin, and Norma xEmmens, sopra
no, gave an entertainment in Ger
rard Hall Friday evening under the
management of the Y. M. C. A.
The program offered was consider
ably above that of the average Lyce
um attraction and was very favorably
received by an audience which made
up, for the sniallness of its size by
lI. ' . i 1
cue appreciation mat it evinced.
Although Mr. Thomas was not at
his best, owing to a severe colt
which rendered it exceedingly dif
ficult for him to speak clearly, his
impersonations and readings were
highly enjoyable, as was proved by
repeated encores. Mr. Thomas is
undoubtedly one of the cleverest
humorists that has visited the Hill
in some time. It is to be hoped
that he may visit the University
again when he is in perfect condi
The violin selections by Miss
Ellen Thomas were well rendered
and were also repeatedly encored.
In choosing music not altogether
classical Miss Thomas showed good
judgment in anticipating the taste
of her audience.
Altogether the entertainment by
the John Thomas Company was far
more satisfactory than that of the
DeKoven Quartette which appeared
under the same management a few
weeks ago. On March 13th the Y.
M. C. A.. will present a third at
traction, Josefy, the Magician, to
the students. ,

Pat Recovering Slowly.
Tuesday afternoon while a crowd
of students were packed in Mayor
Roberson's offiice eagerly listening
to the evidence in the Brock well
case, which stands in the same re
lation to Chapel Hill as the Thaw
trial does to New. York City, the
court's voice rang out clearly to this
"Mr. Williams is fined $10 for
contempt of court."
After kind hands had raised "Pat"
to his feet and after his heart had
resumed its customary occupation
of pumping" the bloood through his
radiant countenance he was con
signed to the charge of Deputy
"Tank" Hunter with whom he
started in quest of the tenspeck.
Mayor Roberson changed his mind
before he progressed very far how
ever, and withdrew the fine. Dr.
Mangum says that while "Pat's"
condition is no longer critical it will

Many Old Men Out Again Change
in Management Some Meets
in View.
The prospects for the Univer
sity's track team are good this
spring. Nearly all of the men who
were out last year are candidates
again this year and, with training,
the team should be much stronger
than last year's. Captain Winbofne
has already started his men to work,
taking the squad out for a mile run
. r , 1 n- i
across countrv oaturuay. i ne
track will bj put into shape imme
diately and the hurdles, standards,
etc., gotten out in preparation for
regular practice.
Mr. J. A. Gray, Jr., has recently
been elected manager of the track
team to succeed Mr. T. A. McNeil
and has already gone to work in
his usual business-like way in the
interest of the team. He already
has in view a Southern trip includ
meets with Georgia and Clemson,
and there are prospects of a meet
with Richmond College. In all
negotiations are pending with
eight colleges for meets.
The captain and the manager of
the track team are also endeavoring"
to arrange an inter-scholastic meet
between the preparatory schools of
the State to be held at the Univer
sity on a field day the date of which
is to decided upon later.
In all eighteen men have come out
to try for the track this spring.
The prospective meets should make
the number even larger. The men
of last year's team who are out
again are: Phillips, Royster,
McNeil, Davis, Dunlap, Pittman,
Singletary, Dickson, Bridgers, and
Win borne.
The New Library.
The walls of the new Library
have at last been raised to the level
of the first floor, the sills for which
are now being sot in place. The
exercises pertinent to the laying
of the corner-stone will be deferred
until Commencement. '
Work on the new library has
been delayed considerably by lack
of material. The yard room at the
depot is entirely inadequate, afford
ing track room for not more than
one-fourth as many cars as are nec
essary for the shipment of the
materials for as large a building as
the library. Consequently much of
this material cannot be secured
when it is needed and the work is
forced to wait for several days at a
Cars full of material for the new
building are standing on every sid
ing between here and University.
One car-load of brick, from Dur
ham, spent exactly four weeks in
running the erauntlet of these sid-i
ings to Chapel Hill. Such are the
railroad accomodations afforded thp
State's University.
Former Missionary to India Ap
peals to Students to Enter the
Mission Fields.
Dr. II. F. LaFlamme, of Toron
to, Canada, secretary of the nation
al committee of the Y. M. C. A.,
addressed the students of the Uni
versity in the chapel Tuesday even
ing at 7:30 on the subject, "A New
Slogan for College Men." This
slogan Dr. LaFlamme showed to be
"The Evangelization of the World
in this Generation."
Dr. LaFlamme was for many
years actively connected with the
mission work in India, 'and spoke
from experience of the wonderful
progress that has bsen made iu
that field. He showed that in view
of the progress that has already
been made towards the evangeliza
tion of the world in the past gener
ation and the increased facilities
and resourses for carrying- on the
missionary movement offered by the
present that this evangelization is
possible in our generation.
Then Dr. LaFlamme showed
that for the movement to be realiz
ed it is necessary that the stu
dents of Christian nations do three
things:' First, they must learn all
that they can about the mission
work, next they must give all that
they can afford to aid the movement,
and lastly they must consecrate
themselves to the service. Dr. La
Flamme concluded with an appeal
to the young men of the University
to enter the mission field. In re
sponse a volunteer movement was
organized, three men indicating
their intention of entering the work.
At 8:30 Dr. LaFlamme addressed
the students in the schools of medi
cine and pharmacy. Seventy-five
men were present.
The Football Coach.
The committee having in charge
the selection of a coach for next
fall's football squad have succeeded
in securing the services of Mr. O.
F. Lamsoj, one of Pennsylvania's
field coaches last fall. Lamson has
been referred to as the best tackle
that Pennsylvania has ever , had.
In speaking of the Harvard-Pennsylvania
game of 1905 Spalding's
Official Football Guide says: "It
was Lamson's work that settled the
game, as it was he who made the
Pennsylvania attack possible,
and at the same time stopped Har
vard's attack against Pennsylva
nia." . Carolina is fortunate in hav
ing" such an efficient coach in view
for the football season of 1907
