"On to Richmond" had been the cry
on the campus for the last ten days.
Every student in the university had
been thinking of the game at Richmond
All the energies of every man had been
concentrated on winning that game.
The football team had gathered them
selves together after winning from
Washington and Lee and had taken a
long breadth before getting ready for
the supreme test on Thanksgiving day.
Sunday night a telegram comes from
Virginia and all these preparations
topple down in crumbling ruins. All
the students here become dazed in real
ization of the fact that the ambition of
three month's longing has been flashed
away and they stand staring at an in
finite wall of leaden hue. But the
thought of our disappontment is only
secondary. We don't consider our own
misfortune except as only the aftermath
of a catastrophe. A young man of
Virginia's team is dead. Saturday he
went into the game with all the power
and promise of an eighteeu year old
hero. Up to the last few minutes of
the game he shone as never before.
Then suddenly his spinal column is bro
ken and he is carried off the field to die.
That's what holds us all. The ab
solute pathos of the situation. It is
only when we force ourselves to leave
the thought and consider ourselves
that we realize that "it means a little
personal inconvenience to us. The
thought that holds us all appalled
comes when we think of young Christ
ain going out one day to the music of
a band and the cheers of his comrades
and then, in a short hour or two,
brought back in awful silence to die.
To us at Carolina there comes a sorrow
we cannot express. To those at Virgi
nia who knew young Christian with
admiration and love, must come a grief
they had not dreamed of. We can only
offer them the sympathy of a heart
overflowing with silent sorrow.
Carolina did herself credit in the
game against Washington and Lee
Saturday. Only three or four times
was the ball in our territory and even
then it was in our possession . Taken
as a whole we have more reason to
feel proud of this game than any game
we have played this season. Our
men seemed to take advantage of every
opportunity they had. As long as the
ball was out-side Washington and
Lee's ten yard line our back field
seemed able to do about what they
pleased in the way of a gain but in
1 II 1 1J .4 .1
siue mai last len varas mere was
nothing doing. We must give that
Lexington bunch credit for being
regular cranks when it comes to hold
ing inside their ten yard line. All
thru the year one of the weaknesses
of the Carolina team has been fumble
ing the ball. It is most gratifying
to notice that not once during this
last game did we fumble the ball
On the other hand covering the bal
has always been pur strong point
In this respect we excelled ourselves
Saturday. Six times Washington and
Lee fumbled and in each instance it
was a Carolina man who dived on top
of the pigskin. On defense Carolina
plays a most remarkably strong game.
Washington and Lee made two first
downs. One thru the line; another on
a forward pass. This means our line
was as firm as granite. Only one first
thu them and that on a fake play.
Also there was not nothing doing
around our ends. Another particular
which Carolina was an arc light
s the handling of the forward pass.
This is a play which we have used
with little success up to the present
we are glad to see such improve
ment. Altogether the game was most
satisfactory. We should have made
one or two more touchdowns but we
really blame Washington and Lee for
hat holding on the one yard line.
The class tennis series which is
soon to besrin is a lare-er factor in
university athletics than it is generally
given credit for being. Our varsity
tennis team has just retured from a
trip on which they lost not a set in
their doubles. We are prone simply to
be glad of the fact and not to inquire
into the reason behind it. Both of the
men on the tennis team were trained
by their work on the class teams t of
which they were members. So far as
playing doubles was concerned neither
got any effective experience except
what he got when playing on the class
teams. This is what class tennis has
done toward developing varsity
material. The man who makes his
class team and then works hard enough
to win the class championship has the
best chance to make the varsity. Up
to the present year very little interest
has been taken in this series. This
fall, however, all the class tournaments
seem to be full and well contested.
We are glad of it. That is the surest
possible way to make it possible for
Carolina to retain her supremacy in
Southern tennis. -

The University Council, we under
stand, has taken up the matter of the
ottery swindles that had grown so
rank here so cuddenly. This is not
the first good thing the council has
done toward bettering conditions of
life on the campus. We feel confident
that. the thoughtful portion of the
student body stands pat for the Coun
cil in this matter. The raffles and
lotteries had gone quite too far and
some stop had to be put to them
Seniors Win from Juniors, 00
Immediately after the report pf the
N. C. -W. & L. game the crowd in
chapel adjourned to. the athletic field
to see the two teams of 1910 and 1911
battle for the College Championship.
As quickly as they could dress the
teams entered the field and the spec
tators turned from viewing a game in
Newport News to the actual scene of
a gridiron struggle close at. hand.
Soon after the kick off it was plain
that the teams were evenly matched,
and that the onlookers were assured of
their money's worth. The Juniors
started off like a whirl wind, rapidly
advancing the ball toward the 1910
goal line. But on the 25yd. line the
tide of battle turned and the Seniors
made a stand. After holding the
charging Juniors for two downs a
fumble, gave 1910 the ball. Then on
a fast train the ball took a tour toward
