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

GERRARD HALL IS TO BE ENLARGED-POWER
HOUSE TO GET
ADDITION S. A. E. 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
