The men work together like machi
nery. The whole machine
plays good ball
The football season for 1909 was
ushered in Saturday when Carolina met
Wake Forest on the local gridiron in a
fast, snappy game of the ideal college
sport. The day was ideal, and by
three o'clock crowds were pouring into
the Athletic Field. Students, towns
people, visitors all eaerer to see the
opening jrame of the season, and be
able to judge for themselves Carolina':
showing for a victorious team. By
3:00 over seven hundred people had ta
ken their stand on the side lines await
ing the referee's whistle. The Baptist
team entered the field amid clapping
of hanH and yells for Wake Forest
They ran through a tew signals and
were practicing a : few drop kicks
when the Carolina squad, numbering
some fifty, entered the field from the
west "'gate amid shouts of applause
and greeting from the side lines. A
sharp signal practice then began after
which both teams retired to their por
tions of the field preparatory to the
game. At 3:40 Referee "Farmer'
xvioore Diew his wnistie and the game
was on. The first half was marked
by two touchdowns by Carolina and
the unexpected brilliant playing of the
whole Wake Forest team for some
minute of scrimmage. Carolina
made her first touchdown after 1 min
ute and 51 seconds of play. Carolina
kicked off to Wake Forest, who was in
turn forced to kick out out of danger
With it Carolina's ball on Wake Forest
40 yd. line, there started a march for
the goal line that nothing could stop,
First one back then another would
gain from four to ten yards straight
through the line. Wake Forest then
kicked to Winston, and it was Caroli
na again for a while until an unlucky
fumble gave the visitors the ball
Then it looked like things were going
the other way a while. Though the
gains were small, they were many
and were made one right another for
about five mintes of play. Forehand
did some good line bucking for Wake
Forest about this time, and was aided
in his rushes by Duffy, Williams and
Leggett. This quartet did some
playing that was really spectacular
or a while. Only the excellent work
of Capt. Garrett, Hedgepeth, Winston,
and "Fleet" Williams saved the Caroli
na goal. . Wake F orest executed a
pretty forward pass, which but for
timely tackling of Winston might
have proved a touch down. Duffy of
Wake Forest played a plucky hard
game. Though badly hurt he contin
ued to play till the'coach made him
go to the bench on account of his inju
ries. With this spurt of brilliant play
Wake Forest's showing ended. From
then on Carolina kept the ball, and did
pretty much as she pleased on the
field. A second touchdown was made
when there were only two minutes to
play. Porter, Crosswell, and Belden
carried the ball to Wake Forest's 20 yd
ine on successive line bucks and a
beautifully executed forward pass,
Ruff in to Winston carried the ball be
tween the goal posts. Croswell's work

Procession forms In front of Alumni
Building at 9:45. All faculty
and students to line up
Next Tuesday, the twelfth of Octo
ber, will be University day. On that
day the students and faculty of the
University will celebrate the birthday
of the University here on the campus,
and throughout the state hundreds of
loyal alumni will celebrate the date.
Here a holiday will be declared in all
departments of the University. At
9:45 all the students together with the
faculty will collect in front of the
Alumni building. Thence a proces
sion headed by the faculty and consist
ing of the student body marching in
their respective classes will march to
Memorial Hall where the exercises are
to take place. The exercises will con
sist as usual of singing the University
songs, the president's report, speeches
from alumni and from a student repre
sentative, and a speech from some
prominent man. Every man here is
urged to take part in the parade.
Don't let your class be the least repre
sented of them all. Swell its numbers
all you can.
Get Behind the Annual
Instructed by the very recent past
and inspired by the near future, the ed
itors and managers of the 1910 Yacke
ty Yack are determined to get out the
best annual in the history of the Uni
versity. The exterior will be as good
as last year's and the management is
determined to make the interior the
most exhaustive seen in any annual in
the South. Our last year's annual
ranked third in the list of the ten best
in America. This year we want to
have one at least second best. But to
do this the business managers and edi
tors must have the support and co-operation
of the student body. It is not
only the privilege but the plain duty
of every man in college to contribute
something toward making the annual
what it should be attractive, original
representative, and exhaustive.
There are various ways of helping
to do this. In the first place, your en
couragement is worth something and
your suggestions may be practical and
helpful. By drawing or by securing
drawings from others you can contri
bute something to the art department.
There is at least one department to
which even the most awkward and in
experienced can contribute the humor
department. To be original, amusing,
and representative of the student body
and college life the knocks, the drags,
and the bits of humor must not be for
mulated by a small group of men who
are to be held responsible for this de
partment: they must be the product
of eight hundred men. Begin at once,
hen, and acquire the habit of record
ing the amusing instances and inter
esting absurdities that are constantly
happening on the campus. Deposit
your contrioutions to the humor de
partment in the drag box to be found
at the Alumni building bulletin board.
Think of your privilege, realize your
responsibility. Give your encourage
ment and support to the business man
agers, assist the editors with your sug
gestions and contributions get behind
the movement that will make the 1910
Yackety Yack the best yet.
