Fountain and Venable win easily
by steady playing and speedy
work at the net
The Carolina tennis team has been
raising sand in Virginia this week.
Randolph-Macon and Richmond were
not a circumstance. They played
Virginia Thursday and Friday and
Washington and Lee today. Details
of" these games in our next issue.
; On Monday the Carolina team com
pletely swamped Randolph-Macon on
their home grounds at Ashland Va.
In the doubles Fountain and Venable
had a walk over and won by steady
playing interspersed with brilliant
spurts. In the singles the tale was the
same. - '
The doubles were played Monday
morning. A large crowd witnessed
the games and the rooting was fierce
all the way through. Randolph
Macon was represented by Burton and
Howison, who put up a game scrap to
the finish. t
I The score:
. Carolina 6 - 6
I Only two of three sets were played
as the time was short and the players
did not wish to break themselves
down before the afternoon games.
In singles Fountain played Burton
and Venable played Haney. Both
Carolina men had a complete
money time in their singles.

On Tuesday aud Wednesday Caro
lina made a clean sweep of Richmond
College. Not once did the Collegians
have a look in. Fountain and Ven
able plaved steadily and their work at
the net was unusually swift and sure.
In doubles Richmond College was
represented by Snead and Coleman.
The sets in doubles went to Carolina
in the order they were played and the
Spiders couldn't get three games in a

In singles Fountain played Coleman.
The first set gave Coleman three
games. Fountain came back strong
in the second however and won easily

Venable played a new man, Hill,
but if the man was new the result was
the same. Hill couldn't scare up more
than two games in a set.

The football frame which the
Freshman were to play with Hor

of the absence from the Hill of
some of the freshman players.
DR. BATTLE. AUTHOR OF HIS
TORY OF UNIVERSITY SPEAKS
Outline of the stormy times of
imiserv' when the foundation was
laid here. Other features of chapel
j Chapel exercises during this week
have been of more than usual interest.
The exercises have been conducted by
Rev. J; W. Wildman, who ; on each
day read one of the Psalms as a prayer.
On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednes
day, Ex-Pres. Battle talked to us in a
most entertaining way of the "Begin
nings of the University." Dr. Battle's
long connection with the University
gives added interest to whatever he
may say concerning it. ,
i On Monday the matter of changing
the supper hour to six-thirty o'clock
was decided by. the- students ;in the
negative. , .
Dr. Battle then spoke briefly as fol
lows: "It is hard to speak about the
beginnings ot an institution since
there is no institution that is not in
some way linked with the past. So it
is with, the University. Its history
can be traced to Scotland, and its be
ginnings to the Scotch-Irish who set
tled in North Carolina before the Rev
olution, bringing with them their sys
tems of schools and their teachers. It
was through the efforts of these Scotch-
Irish thai the University clause ; was
put into the constitution of 1776. The
best monof the colony were delegates
to the second constitutional conven
tion, held at Hillsboro for the express
purpose or making a constitution.
After much wrangling among- the de
legates, a committee of the most prom
inent men was chosen to frame the
constitution drawn up by these men
containing the clause prescribing the
establishment of a university or uni
versities and of public schools North
Carolina was not, however, the only
colony whose constitution contained
such a clause, the constitution of
Pennsylvania, through the influence
of Franklin, contained ; a like provi-
sion. i ne university coma not be es
tablished at once, owing 'to the stress
of war. Indeed, it was not until 1795
that the institution was opened."
On Tuesday morning Dr. Battle con
tinued his talk of the day previous.
In bare outline he spoke as follows:
"Not until North Carolina joined the
Union was it possible to start a system
of education. William R. Davie, a
man of push, intelligence, and patri
otism, was the founder of the univer
sity. Davie had been a soldier of skill,
daring and genius in the war. He
was also an excellent lawyer, well-fitted
to start the University There was no
money in the State , with which to
start the institution, and but for the
pluck and energy of Gen. Davie the
university would not have been open
ed. Davie raised money in three ways
(1) on horses used in the war and by
claims on Revolutionary soldiers. (2)
Estates through which lands that had
reverted to the State in default of
heirs were given to the university.
(3) By taking up ; old Warrants for
lands by which the State had sought
to reward soldiers of the Revolution.
Able men were sent to Tennessee to
nrnsecute these claims, and through
their efforts the University gained
