ANOTHER FRIEND GONE
SENIOR STUNT SUCCESSFUL
N. C. WINS FROM GUILFORD
A TWELVE INNING CONTEST RE
SULTS IN A HARD WON VIC
TORY FOR VIRGINIA. BOTH
TEAMS PLAY GOOD BALL.
Greensboro has seldom if ever
seen such a game of ball as five
thousand people witnessed in Cone
Park Monday afternoon. True,
the game would have been more
pleasant if the score, Va. 3, N. C.
1, had ' been the reverse. Yet a
twelve inning game with abundant
good plays ought to have satisfied
the baseballs fans.
Everything needed for a good
game was there. Evenly matched
teams, ginger and snap among the
players, enthusiasm among the
the spectators, and "white goods"
in satisfying abundance. Carolina
and Virginia sent their teams 'to win,
both were determined, and played
hard. The spectators waxed more
and more enthusiastic with every
inning. The Normal and G. F. C.
furnished a feast for the eyes be
tween innings.
Carolina took the lead with one
run in the first inning. Here the
score stayed till the eighth, when
Virginia tied it. Then there was
nothing doing until the twelfth inn
ing. Then Virginia scored twice.
All of thissouuds easybut it came
hard. Walker of Virginia, was hit
freelv for the first few innings then
seemed to strenghten. Stewart
could scarcely be touched until the
eighth and then could not be trifled
with. In the twelfth, however,
he yielded three hits and the game
was done. Both pitchers pitched
fine ball, Walker getting a little
better support at critical times.
Catchers caught a good game.
Moore, of Carolina, had more work
to do, since Virginia's base-runners
being more daring than ours. He
pegged nicely, though, and was
ably assisted by Duncan, who
OUR OLD FRIEND THE FRENCH
PLAY WHICH HAS FURNISHED
SO MUCH NEWS IS BURI
ED BUT WITH HONORS.
Friday night promptly at sched
uled time the French play, "Le
Medicin Malgre Lui," began. The
house could have held more but
those whom it held could not have
been more appreciative.
Mr. Vermont gave first a short
summary of the three acts of the
drama. He had intended to, he said,
in French but refrained for fear
there might be some one in the
audience who might not understand.
The play progressed smooth ly from
start to finish and , if any of the
players made a break it was imper
ceptible to at least a large part of
the audience. In fact they rattled
off their words with so much ease
that it had not been for the excel
lent pantomine we would not have
realiztd when they reached the end.
All of the men did far better than
we would have expected, but, Mr.
Parker as Syanarelle, J. A. McKay
as his wife, ana R. L. Deal as Val&-
re were especially Efood. Mr. Ver.
mont did as well as any but we had
expected that as a matter of course.
Not only was the acting good but
the costumes Were equally "jfood.
We think the University owes
the French Dramatic Club a vote of
thanks lor giving us a play so
unique and so well gotten off,
though it was a virgin attempt in an
untrampled field.

THE HOWLING FARCE OF THE
SENIORS IS A HOWLING SUC
CESS. THE CIRCUS IS A
SHOW FOR A FACT.
The French play has not been
the only successful departure in the
line of amusement this week. The
Senior Circus, the greatest, the
wildest, the grandest, held forth
two evenings. The Seniors set
out to give the students and visitors
something unique and before un
heard of. They intended to give
everyone a good hearty; laugh and
succeeded wonderfully.
There were, under one mighty
expanse of stinnering canvas, a
great uianagerie, a fine collection of
human curiosities, a minstrel troupe
unsurpassed, and ballet dancers of
wonderful training, not to mention
that feature that in itself was
worth the price of admission, The
Whang-Doodle Band.
The menagerie was composed of
tremendous wild beasts of many
kinds just captured and brought
over from the wildest jungles of
darkest Africa. The beasts how-
if.
ever seem perfectly under the con
trol of the trainers.
Thecollection of human curiosi
ties coatained, Baba the Brainless,
T her Wild Man from Borneo,- specU
meni of babies who had and had
not taken Mellin's Food, an Indian
Maid of wondrous beauty and the
enourmous Fat Woman. All were
freaks of the rankest type.
The minstrel band and ballet
dancers set out to be ridiculous and
amusing1. They succeded in both
beyond measure. Some of the hits
especially at some of the professors
were provided with excelle nt points.
Last bnt not least the Whang-
Doodles furnished well their part of
the entertainment. The Seniors
succeeded in getting up something
that was not only unusual but also
amusing in the extreme. They
gave lis a laugh such as we seldom
enjoy.

HEDGPETH PITCHES AN EXCEL.
LENT GAME LETTING THE
HARD-HITTING QUAKERS
DOWN WITH TWO HITS.
Carolina defeated Guilford yes
terday afternoon by the score of
four to one in a game characterized
by rather loose playing on Guil
ford's part. Hedgpeth pitched an
excellent game for Carolina and had
almost perfect control. Ridgeway
for the visitors wa3 hard to hit but
was rather wild and walked men
when the results were unpleasant
to him.
Carolina's infield hardly played
its usual game, although Stewart
on first showed up well for his first
game ' in this position, Duncan
made one unusually good stop, and
played his customary game. Moore
as usual caught a fine game and
pegged nicely.
The ganie cannot be said to have
been featureless. Hackney and
Lyon made beautiful catches in the
outfield. ' Stewart got a pretty
three-bagger with two men on
bases. Doak, Guilford's third base
man, made a sensational stop, stole
third and stole home. This steal
home was beautfully executed and
was the only '.'thing, that saved
Guilford from being shut out.

Interstate Track Meet
Monday night in Greensboro
Davidson, Guilford, A. & M., Wake
Forest, and Carolina met in an
interstate track meet. As a starter
it was all right, but track athletics
do not seem to have the place they
should have in the colleges of the
State.
Wake Forest won the cup offered
by the Greensboro Chamber of
Commerce. Guilford took second'
place. Carolina third, A. & M.
fourth, and Davidson fifth.
