WAKE FOREST MAKES A MUCH
BETTER SHOWING THAN 2.AST
YEAR. MOST OF THE
EVENTS CLOSELY
CONTESTED
The first dual track meet of
the season was held here Friday
with the Wake Forrest team. All
of the events were closely contested
and Carolina won by a much smal
ler margin than last year. The
score was sixty points for Carolina
lo forty-four for Wake Forrest.
Gardner, who was a star perform
er here last year, won two first
places for Wake Forrest. Cough-
enour is one ot tlie best sprinters
that has been seen here in some time.
His v.ork in the 100; and 220 yard
dashes was highly creditable Had
it not been for the fact that he was
overworked bv taking part in. too
many events lie would have proba
bly won some more points for his
team. Gay gave Williams a close
rub for the high jump, and in the
mile run Murchinson stuck to Capt.
Shaw to the finish.
For Carolina, Capt. Shaw won
first place in the high hurdles and
mile run, Williams was first in the
broad and high jumps, Teague led
in the quarter-mile run, Everet took
the half-mile run, Wood finished
with a good, lead to spa.re in. the
low hurdles, Osborne "fvnd 'T&Tmes
tied for first honors in th e pole-rault.
Winston deserves cred it for work
in the 100 and 220 yarc'i dashes. In
both he was defeated by a very nar

Monday April 19th will be a red
letter day for Greensboro on account
of the big athletic events to be pull
ed off there. In the afternoon at
3:30 the Carolina Virginia base
ball game by odds the biggest
college game of the South will be
played at the Cone Athletic Park.
At 8:00 P. M. the Greensboro
Auditorium an Inter-Collegiate
Track Meet will be held. This
will be the first meet of the kind
ever held in North Carolina and
will doubtless draw a large crowd.
The baseball game will be one of
the most hotly contested games ever
played between the old rivals,
Noth Carolina and Virginia. Vir
ginia has a splendid record this sea
sou having1 won thirteen out of four
teen games. Carolina has also been
going at a fast clip this season,
having lost only two college games
and one game to the Winston Lea-

south-paw, will toe the slab for
rginians. Opposed to him
"Red" Stewart, Carolina's
t ball artist. On the work
of thee two youths will probably

they are in good form it is a safe
bet that base hits will be few .and
far between and run g-etting- an un
known art. The two teams were
never more evenly matched, and
either the slightest turn of luck or
the smallest miscue may decide the
result of the game.
&s stated above the game will be
played at 3:30 P. M. The price of
admission is fifty cents. TheCaro
lina rooters will occupy the bleach
ers down the first base line and un
der their Chief-Cheerer's leader
ship should make things lively.
Carolina has a good chance to win
the track meet. Captain Shaw has?
his men working" hard this week to
overcome the weak points brought
out in the Wake Forest meet. The
price of admission to the meet will
also be fifty cents.
An excursion will be run from
Chapel Hill to Greensboro. It' will
leave here at 8:00 A. M. and return
ing will leave Greensboro at mid
night giving everybody an opportu
nity to take in both athletic events
and see something- of Greensboro
besides. The round-trip fare is so
low that almost everybody -can
alrord to go. Une dollar ana a
half is all. Let all who can go and
encourage both the baseball nine
and track team by lusty cheering.

THE OCCASION WHEN WE
NEED THE RUNS. SCORE
3 TO 2

season Carolina defeated Villanova
Thursday by a score of three to two.

the game on the whole was charac

ting. Up to the eighth inning the
score was two to one in Villanova's
favor. In this inning Lambeth, the
first man up for Carolina, sent a
slashing single to center. Lyon
then smashed to deep right for
a home-run.
The features for Carolina were
the batting- of Moore and Duncan,
Lyon's timely home-run, Stewart's
pitching, and Armstrong's work at
third in catching foul balls. For
Villanova the battery work of Sher
ry and Walsh, the fielding of Barr
