PENNSYLVANIA COVERS US UP
CLEMSON WINS TRACK MEET
H K HI
IN AN UPHILL GAME CHARAC.
TERIZED BY ERRORS AND
HARD HITTING CAROLINA,
WINS FROM'VIRGINI Ai
Nine husky Tar Heels trotted out
on the field at Charlottesville, Va.,
last Friday determined' to break
Virginia's winning- streak , and get
revenge for the loss of a twelve in
ning contest in Greensboro two
weeks before. They had an uph;ll
fight almost all the way but. the
final score stood Carolina 7, Vir
ginia 6.
The game was won by as strong
a ninth inning, rally as any Tar
Heel team ever made. In the
seventh inning Virginia sent four
runners across the plate. It looked
as if the lads from the Old Domin
ion had the game cinched. But in
the eighth two scores were made on
Virginia's errors and Hamilton's
timely hit. This left the score 6
to 5 in Virginia's favor. A field
er's choice and three hits netted
Carolina's two runs in the ninth.
The features for Carolina were
the batting and all-round, good
work of Capt. Hamilton, Stewart's
pitching in the pinches, Winn's
home-run with two men on bases,
and Hackney's spectacular catch of
Cabaniss s line drive to deep center.
The veterans Hamilton and Stew
art were continuously in the lime
light. Hamilton got four hits, and
was always full of snap and ginger
on the coaching line. "Red" pitch
ed a strong game, and hit at a time
when a hit was needed.'
For Virginia the features were
Dabney's home-run scoring Hona
ker ahead of him and - Cabaniss's
batting and base-running", ' Wit
mer, 'who had defeated : both, Holy
Cross and Ford ham and up to, this
time had not lost a single game,
pitched for Virginia.
Game by innings:
1. Carolina: Duncan flew out i to

HEDGPETH. ALLOWS GEORGE
TOWN TEAM FOUR HITS. OUR
I' TEAM CONNECTS WITH'
DEVINE FOR NINE
i Carolina triumphed over her old
fival Georgetown in Washington,
C. Tuesday before a large crowd
of spectators many of whom were
supporters of the ! white and blue.
The score was four to two. The
game was characterized by the fast
out-field 1 work and opportune hit
ting of Carolina and Georgetown's
fast infield work.
i For seven- innings Harry Hedg
peth; Carolinals. h.uskyt left-handed
hurler, held the mighty Georgetown
hitters in the hollow of his hand.
In the eighth he got rather wild and
it was thought best to let Stewart
relieve him. Hackney's phenome
nal catch of Dugant's; line drive to
deep center in the ninth inning is
said to have been even a better play
than his-calcb of Cabaniss 's drive
in, the Virginia game. Stewart
caught a Jong, drive tQ right',, which
would have gone over the embank
ment, and Fountain , also made a
catch which was of the stellar va
riety. : Devine,' a; left-hander; pitched for
Georgetown. . .The Tar Heels solv
ed his delivery ifdr nine.hits. May
ock on second and Callahan on short
did some fast fielding.
Carolina's first run rcame in the
opening, innings Duncan walked,
went, to second on a passed ball,
took third when hit to second and
scored on Stewart's single to cen
ter. Another run was added in the
fifth. Duncan: walked, Winn sin
gled to center and on the fielder's
error Duncan took third and Winn
second., Duncan , scored on Stew
art's sacrifice fly to center. The
other two runs were made! in the
eighth. With one down Hackney
singled to left. Armstrong fanned.
Fountain singled to center advanc
ing Hackney to second. Hedgpeth
'won his own game by hitting a sin
gle to center scoring Hackney. The
center-fielder let the ball get by him
and Fountain also scored.1
Georgetown's first run came in
the sixth (.when Devine singled, stole
second and scored on Schlafly's two
bagger. Iri the eighth Murphy
singled. , Schlafly was put out by
Hamilton unassisted. Simon and
Mayock walked.; Stewart relieved
Hedgpeth. "CyV McDonald hit to
short and on Winn's fumble Mur
phy scored. Duffy hit , to Stewart
who threw home and forced Simon.
Sitterding fanned. Iri the ninth
Stewart held Georgetown safe.

IN A POOR GAME ON A POOR DAY
PENNSYLVANIA GIVES US
THE TERRIBLE LICKING
OF 14 TO 2
In Philadephia Monday Carolina
was decidedly off color and suffered
her worst defeat of the season at the
hands' of Pennsylvania. The weath
er was cold and a high wind was
blowing. This worked againt the
locals to a great extent as Stewart
is not a cold weather pitcher. Penn
sylvania scored fourteen runs on
hits, errors, and bases on balls,
while Carolina could send only two
men across the rubber. Cozens, for
Pennsylvania sent in four runs by
two two-baggers.
On account of the large number
of hits, errors, et cetera we have no
room for the tabulated score.
Score by innings:

Carolina 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0-- 2 10 6
Pennsylvania 1 1 4 0 5 0 3 0 x-- 14 5 0

Champions of 1903 Reunite
The 'Varsity ball team of 1903,
the champions of the South for that
year, are arranging for a reunion at
Commencements next ,., June,- when
they will play a match game with
the present 'Varsity.
It will be remembered that the
1903 Champions were such men as
Earle Holt, Jack Donnelly, "Peck"
Hart, Bill - Carr; "Big " Noble,
Frank' Smathers, Wade Oldham,
"Fatty V Giles, John Cheshire, and
George Graham.
All the boys have been written to
and from the answers received the
indications are that the line up will
once more be on hand.
Most all of them have played
during the seasons since they left
the Hill and a good game may be
looked for.
It is hoped that all the scrub
team for 1903 will be present for
they will possibly be needed, espec
ially so if some of the 'Varsity
chanced to be kept away.
If a precedent be established the
present 'Varsity may be seen on the
diamond again, after a few years.
Dr. Robert P. Noble of Selma
N. C, the 'Varsity catcher for 1903
has been conducting the correspondence-
All who wish to come and
can will write to him.
I The University and the Alumni
will give the old team a rousing
welcome when they don the Carolina
suit and again appear on the diamond.
