Vol. 17. UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, N. C, THURSDAY, MARCH 11, 1909. NO. 20 OFFICIAL ORGAN OF THE UNIVERSITY OF I NORTH CAROLINA ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. BINGHAM GAME SATURDAY EDITING AS AIM ART FRENCH DRAMATIC CLUB EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETS INTERSTATE CONVENTION OF THE Y. M. C. A. NEXT WEEK IN CHARLOTTE. , , ' . . . i Coach vStockdale is now, getting his baseball talent in shape for the opening1 game. Batting: practice base-running", infield and outfield practice, scrub games and gymnastic exercises area part of the work aq has been putting; the candidates through. So far the outlook is very promising;. j Moore seems to have it on the other catchers. Stewart, Hedgpeth,! and Mauser are showing up best in the box. Hamilton is on first basej while Duncan occupies the second; Winn seems to have the better oi the contest for short. Third is still an unknown quantity. Armi strong, Rose, and Lyon are still in the fight for that positiou. It is also impossible to state who the out fielders will be. The game Saturday bids fair to be an interesting performance. Bob Howard, a big southpaw, who twirled in the Virginia League two seasona ago, and in the Eastern Carolina League last summer, will be on the firing line for Bingham. It is also rumored that he is going to bring a League catcher with him. It will be remembered that he held the 'Varsity to two hits last year, and pi tched one of theprettiest games seen on the local diamond. It is not known who will pitch for Carolina. Coach Stockdale will probably give all the most promising of his young artists a chance to distinguish themselves. S. S. McCLURE ENTERTAINS PROF. WILLIAMS TALKS ON SUCCESS TRACK NEWS Thursday jiight S. S. McClure, editor and founder of McClure' Magazine, lectured on "Editing as an Art." That was his subiect, in fact he gave a very frank and hu morous story of his life asa journal ist. This story and a discussion of the liquor question, and the question of immigration made up his lecture together with an explanation of the; way McClure's investigations are made. There wasn t a dry spot iu the whole of his talk. He was humors ous, serious, natural, and vvhimsi cal. In short he had something- to say, and better he said it. The best part of his story was that he gave luck it's share. It is refreshing to hear a successful man say that he didn't win it all on merit, but that his success was due to accident about as much as to any thing else. This is the kind of a story; many of us have been wanting to hear for a long time. We heard it, and thank Mr. McClure for it. Y. M. C. A. Convention Next week the Interstate Conven tion of the Y. M. C. A. meets in Charlotte. Several members of the local Y. M. C A. are f.going - over Special rates are given to the dele gates, and the hospitality of Char lotte is so well known f that there is no need to speak of it. A number of strong speakers will be there, and the strong men, moral ly, of the colleges of the State- As special features consideration will be given to Boy's . Work, Social Games', and Clean Sports. There will be section conferences for, Cotton Mill Operators, Cotton Mill Employees, Students, Railroad Men, and Boys. Mass meetings will be held for Men, Women, and Boys. A Complimentary Banquet will be given, and a Basketball Tourna ment will take place. Good music will be rendered, thoughts will be interchanged. A good time should be had. and benefit derived. It , is hoped that we will have a large delegation. Success Professor H. H. Williams ad- dressed the Y. M. C. A. Tuesday night, Hi wuhjct was success, Professor Williams defined success as, "adding to the sum-total of con ditions that make for human wel fare." His treatment of the subject was to define true success, then to point out where it could best be attained. A great man, he said, is one who serves the country, or community; at its point of greatest need. For instance the great men of today are business men. Life work then, t h i n k s Pro f essor W i 1 1 i a m s, should be considered from two sides, the social and the individual. A man must first consider what society needs, then what he can best do. Society's need .comes first, and should be given precedence, but a man to be great must have his heart in his work. His final word uvas, "Do what vou like to do.' THE YACKETY YACK'S LID IS TO BE CALF-SKIN THIS YEAR IN THE SOCIETIES The play which the French Dra matic Club Will present, "A Doctor in spite of Himself " is to come off on the evening of the sixteenth of April, Coming asit does during the Easter Dances it should bring out a good house. And it must, it is an affair fpr the whole University to consider. TVT Tfc t 1 TT iessrs. rarKer auci Vermont are going to stage it. The munificent salaries of our instructors hardly fit them for charity to the extent of njaki ng a present of the play to the University. It means much work for them, although it is done willingly. But i would be too much to ask them to dp the work and pay for it. Any thing that helps so great a number o students, and gives pleasure to tie rest ought to be largely a stu dent affair. If the natural curiosity ofthe students fails to bring them out, it is hoped that they will stand k of a move snch as this. 1909 Annual Our annual this year is going to be a good one. More than that it isgoine-to . look p-ood. Recrinnitio- HfotH the lover-il war um a. ciy glod appearance. , This year instead oithe plush, or sheepskin cover the YAckety Yack will be bound sub stmtially in calf. The managers hs ve decided to give up some of their profits rather than give out a poor annual. The have succeeded in Making good their part. The next (luestion will be for the student body At last our complaints have been beard, and the annual will please the girl. If you want succeeding mana gers to get out good Yackety Yacks, bay this one'in quantities sufficient to justify them in incurring extra ex pense. i'. .'. - - - " " : The Wearers of the N.

BANQUET The executive Committee of the trustees met with the Governor in Raleigh Tuesday. The enlarge ment of Gerrard Hall was consider ed. The question of scanty funds next came up as it has to whenever an improvement is needed at the University. As usual it was found that the money was scarcely avail able, The need is so great, howev er, for the improvement that an ap peal is to be made to 'the Alumni. Those who know that Gerrard Hall is much to small for its uses are to be given a chance to help in the cause. The estimate of the amount needed was $4000. ' In addition to the improvement just mentioned the question of light and heat was (discussed. The power house is at present utterly inade quate. The Dynamo balks under the library lights and the heat is almost cold in the last building on the cir cuit. An increase of fifty 1 percent in power would not be 'too much. The executive committee, realizing the great need of adding to the power of the lighting plant, have decided to use the extra appropia- tion for building purposes'to add to Founders' Day Banquet The annual Founders' Day ! ban- quetof the Alpha Sigma Epsilon Fra ternity was celebrated last Saturday night at the S.
