Carolina carried the ball within
striking distance of the goal
but drop kick failed
Carolina suffered her first defeat of
this season Saturday in Lynchburg,
Va., when the Virginia Military Insti
tute made the only score of the game
by a drop kick from the 30-yd. line
with three minutes to play. Kinsolving
is the guilty party.
The story of the game is a recital
climax reversed. In the former battle
Belden's sure foot won for Carolina, in
Saturday's struggle Kinsolving's sure
foot defeated her. ' ;
This latter clause of the- previous
sentence would, we think, furnish all
ideal subject for a spirited debate. In
fact, the preliminaries were gone; thru
with Saturday on the Lynchburg field.
The query was, "Resolved that the
pigskin did not clear the crossbar."
The first speaker called on debate was
Umpire Gannon. He stated that he
knew very little about the topic, but
that it was his opinion that the nega
tive had a little the best of the deal.
"To tell the truth," said he in the
course of his remarks, "I. was so far
amid field and the glare of the sun was
so intense that I couldn't tell which
side of the bar the ball chose. The
reason I chose the negative side of this
discussion, is , that I thought I could
distinguish the outline of the bar sil
houetted against the ball in its down
ward flight." Mr. Gannon ended his
remarks with an appeal to Referee
PfeilTer for his views on the matter.
His views accorded largely with those
of Mr. - and he in turn called
upon the head linesman for his opin
ion, upon which opinion both jurors
aud judges agreed to base their decis
ion. The head linesman, a sub. of V.
M. I., stated that to the best of his
eyesight and knowledge the ball clear
ed the bar nicely. Many of the au
dience considered him lacking: in both.
Many others spoke on the subject, but
the speech of the head linesman won
the debate. Some eight policeman
who had reserve d seats near the goal
post vigorously supported the affirma
tive, but the speeches were thrown out
of the decision because they were not
on regular debate. Many of the spec
tators through a sense of injured jus
tice tried to say a few words in defense
of the affirmative, but the judges, de
clared the preliminaries adjourned.
Really, though, it will be some
weeks yet before Carolina considers
herself beaten in Lynchburg on Oct.
16th. True enough she was not up to
her usual form and for this we have
neither excuse nor apology, but a V.
M. I. pigskin never crossed between
her uprights upon the above mention
ed date. li'X. ".-ibCJ ..;
Despite the fact that the whole team
had an off day, there were some who
did brilliant work against such heavy
odds. Belk, though new at quarter,
ran the team well, and did some re
markable punting, some going over 60
yds. Winston played his usual fast
snappy game at end. Belden's work
was consistent and effective. Croswell
made some long gains. The boys on
the whole were off color, and their

HIS REMAINS CARRIED TO FAY
ETTEVILLE FOR BURIAL
After a life of service to his State
and her University Judge MacRae
died suddenly In 71st year
Judge! James Cameron MacRae,
who, for the past ten years, has held
the position of Professor of Law and
Dean of the Law Department of the
University, died suddenly of heart
failure Sunday night at eleven o'clock.
Judge MacRae was seventy-one years
of age and, tho he had been troubled
with attacks of heart trouble now and
then for some years, for the past year
had seemed in the best of health. He
was feeling perfectly well when he
attended services at the Episcopal
Church Sunday evening and was only
taken sick as he retired for the night.
The doctor was immediately summoned
but arrived only in time to be at. his
Judge MacRae was born in Fayette
ville in 1838. He went to school at
the Donaldson Academy for some time
and then tauerht school until he erot
his license to practice Jaw in 1859.
When the ciyil war had been declared
Judge MacRae enlisted as a private in
Company II, 1st N. C. Volunteers. He
served during the war in various ca
pacities until at its close he held the
position Assistant Adjutant General
to General Baker in the Eastern Dis
trict of North Carolina.
After the war he resumed his prac
tice of law and was a member of the
legislature in 1874-75. In 1882 he
was judge of the Superior Court and in
1883 the degree of L. L. D. was con
ferred upon him by the university. In
1892 Judge MacRae was elected Asso
ciate , Justice of the Supreme Court.
In 1899 he accepted the position of
professor of law and dean of the law
department here at the university to
succeed Dr. John S. Manning.
Judge MacRae was a communicant
in the Episcopal church and Senior
Warden of the Masonic Order. For
years he has been actively engaged, as
a teacher of a Bible class, in aiding
and helping the students ' of the uni
versity. Judge J. C. MacRae is survived by:
his wife, Mrs. Fannie MacRae; a
brother, Mr. R. S. MacRae of Chapel
Hill; a sister, Mrs. William Smith, of
Washington; a step-sister, Miss Jen
nie MacRae, of New York City; and
six children, Dr. John MacRae, of
Tampa, Fla.; Mrs. E. J. Lilly, of Fay
etteville; C. F. MacRae, of Wilming
ton; Mrs. John C. Lamb, of Wilson;
Theodore H. MacRae, of Greensboro.
and Duncan MacRae, graduate student
at the University.
Judge MacRae held a secure place
in the affections of all the students of
the University and was the idol of the
law students. He has always been
known as a most sincere friend of the
students and was ever active in his
acts of friendship and deeds of kindness
toward them. No other man can fill
the gap left vacant by .his death.
The body of Judge MacRae was
taken to Fayettville on the morning
train yesterday. The funeral was con
ducted from the Episcopal Church of
this place and was attended by a vast
number of friends and admirers.
