GYM N. G'S GIVEN TO FOUR
AN INTERESTING CONTEST IN
The Giving of Sweaters Has Stimu
lated Interest in Gym
The annual contest for gymuasi
um N. C.'s took place Saturday
afternoon at the Bynum Gymnasi
um. The men who entered the con
test and who had been training al
the spring were in good condition
and the exhibition thev e-ave was
interesting. To get the jerseys,
the contestants had to do a number
of stunts, comprising figures on the
parallel bars, the horizontal bar,
j. i : t i
ine swing rings, tne norse, ana on
the mats. There were seven con
testants, and the ierseys were
awarded to the following men, V. W.
Osborne, L. C. Kerr, C; C. Brown,

mutee as tne Dest au round gym
nast, and Kerr as a very close sec

the track above bv a lare number
of spectators. The judges were,
Drs. C. S. Mangum, C. H. Herty,
and C. A. Smith.
jl nese contests ior tne jerseys
have done a great deal of good in
being an incentive for harder work
in the gymnasium. With a chance
for an N. C. in view, one does not
have to work in an impersonal and
uninteresting manner, but he has
something to aim at, something that
puts life and interest into his work
Seniors Defeat Meds.
The most interesting class game
that has been played this spring
was that Saturday afternoon, when
the Seniors defeated the Meds by
the score of 11 to 4. During the
first part of the game the Meds
played all around the Seniors and
it looked like a walk-over. They

Dattea wen ana aia gooa worK in
the field, while the Seniors couldn't
hit and played poorly in the field.
The tide, however, was turned in
the sixth. ' The Doctors went to
pieces and the Seniors got together
and sent five men across the rubber
before the side was retired. The
Meds fought hard both those in
the game and those on the side lines
and did their utmost to recover
the game, but it was too late. The
Seniors had it "cinched."
Sumner pitched exceptionally
well for the Meds until the fatal
sixth. Matthews' work was poor
at the beginning, but he gradually
improved until toward the last,
when he did some pietty stunts.
In a ten-inning game Tuesday
the Sophs defeated the Freshmen
by a score of 4 to 1. The Fresh
men started the scoring in the first,
the Sophs got one in the fifth, and
added three in the ninth. Thomas
and Cocke did the battery work for
the Freshmen, and Sloan and Pin
nix for the Sophs.
RETURN OF THE PRESIDENT
HE REACHES THE HILL SATUR-
A Large Crowd of Students March
to His Home to Welcome
Dr. Venable returned Saturday
morning from his voyage to Italy,
upon which he had been gone about
six weeks. As soon as he arrived
on the Hill, some of his admirers in
the student body set the old college
bell to ringing and kept it ringing
for an hour.
At night the societies adjourned
and most of the members marched
in a body, headed by the band and
lighted by jtorches, to Dr. Venable's
home, there to welcome him back
to "God's Country" with some of
the old college yells. He responded
by making a short talk, in which
he expressed his delight at being
once more on the Hill, and his ap
preciation of the rousing welcome.
In the course of his remarks he
took occasion, to congratulate the
students upon their priceless her
itage of American citizenship, say
ing' that his voyage had made him
notice more forcibly than ever the
contrast between the old country
and the new.
Dr. Venable spent the major part
of his time upon the water, inas
much as he went mainly for the
benefit to be derived from a sea
voyage. Jtle spent twelve days in
Naples and bothered little about
sight-seeing, for, as he said, he
just "loafed," so that he might be
come thoroughly rested.
Guilford and Virginia.
No more games will be played
on the Hill until Aoril 10.
but meanwhile Carolina will face
at Greensboro two teams that have
always made her get up and hustle.
They are Guilford and Virginia
the former Saturday, April 4, the
latter Monday, April 6. An excur
sion will be run on the sixth, leav
ing Chapel Hill at 8:10, and as
many students as can do so are
urged to attend and help at the
Georgia Debate Postponed.
The Georgia debate has been
postponed, and will probably be
'ield April 10, provided Mr. O. R.
Rand, who is sick with the mumps,
is sufficiently recovered to participate.
Virginia Carolina Debate.
Messrs. J. W. Hester and J. T.
Johnston leave this morning for
Richmond to meet the debaters
rom the University of Virginia to
morrow night on the question as to
whether national banks should be
allowed to issue notes on their gen
eral assets. These gentlemen have
worked hard on the question and
they will unquestionably give the
Virginians a run for their money.
They were accompanied by Mr. T.
L. Simmons, as "Coach."

SCORE OF 5 TO 2.
An Interesting Game Fullenwider
Does Good Pitching, Fan
ning Eleven Men.
Carolina defeated Cornell here
yesterday afternoon by the score of
5 to 2. The game was interesting
from beginning to end and the
teams did good work both at the
stick and in the field. The Cor
nell men were rather vociferous in
their kicks, claiming that Umpire
Whitaker did not give them a

the second inning, when by a suc
cession of pretty hits they landed
three men across the rubber.
Again in the sixth and in the eighth
they scored. Cornell scored her
first run in the fourth and her
second in the ninth when Lally, the
cather, knocked a clean home run.
Fullenwider pitched a beautiful
game, causing eleven men to won

The Prize Reading Contest.
The Prize Reading Contest by
the students in Public Speaking
announced in last week's Tar Heel
will probably be held during the
Easter dances. The contestants
have been chosen and .will be an
Mr. Potter's success with "The
Rivals" here February 20 is suffic
ient to prove that any entertain
ment he prepares for the stage is
well worth hearing. The idea of
having such a contest is new at
this institution, but it is certain
that with Mr. Potter behind it the
show can but be a success. The
following clipping is taken from the
paper at Barre, Vermont at which
place Mr, Potter taught last year:
"Mr. Potter showed in his recent
recital that he is a reader and im
personator of the highest rank. In
his production of "The Rivals," the
excellent work done by the entire
cast proved that as a dramatic coach
he is unsurpassed Last night
when his pupils were presented in a
Prize Reading Contest the public
was convinced that whenever his
name appears upon a program you
may know the entertainment will
be worth the price." -Vermont
