Fok the following- sentiments we
claim no originality whatever except
in so far as our own endorsement goes.
We had the pleasure of hearing the
president of : the J University and the
president of the athletic association
express themselves before the students
in chapel Thursday morning. We
simply take this means of giving our
readers the benefit of their remarks
and of showing what we believe to be
the attitude of the student body to
ward the question. The managers of
the affairs of football met Wednesday
and decided to have no game Thanks
giving1. These managers were: . the
president of the athletic association,
the manager, the captain, and the
coach of the football team, and the
faculty committee on athletics If any
body could decide this question cor
rectly this body could. The game
Thanksgiving has always been our
chief mainstay in the season. After
Virginia had her misfortune thib year
there was no possibility whatever of
getting a game with a big team.
Furthermore prominent men in "Rich
mond have strongly advised that , we
not attempt a game there as the at
tendance would be altogether disap
pointing. This leaves us the choice
of playing some inferior team in a
small city. Out of such a game we
might make three hundred dollars.
But we must remember that Thanks
giving day is sometimes-stormy. If
that day should be stormy the athletic
association would go still deeper in
the hole. The only sane decision,
then, was made by the managers when
they decided to disband the football
team. Still there remains on the ath
letic association a debt of seventeen
hundred and fifty dollars. This must
be paid. There are three sponsors for
this debt, the students, the faculty
and the alumni. Several alumai, we
understand, have already written of
fering aid. The faculty have assured
us what aid they may give. But the
students are more responsible for this
debt than any one else. The associa
tion is a student association. The
team represented the students. The
debt is on the students. The students
of the university would have spent a
minimum of tweutyifive hundred dol
lars, at Richmond Thanksgiving.
hundred and fifty when they stay on
the Hill. This debt of the athletic
association is as much a debt of honor
as any debt contracted bet ween mau
and man. The honor of the student
body is a thing we have always kept
sDOtless. We cannot allow .such a blot
to come upon it now. We are not ; to
think that the. failure to meet this
debt will be merely a temporary dis
comfort to the association. If we do
not cover this, track athletics and base
Dan glory are gone trom us ' tor some
3 ears to come. Also we will have no
football team next year. We cannot
expect a coach to come here when he
knows of our indebtedness. We have
had this year a fine football season
Altho we went down before V, P. I
we have overcome Tennessee, George
town, and Washington and Lee. The
track team is about to get a trainer
for the first time and the prospects of
a good track team are fine." Baseball?
O baseball. Well we wont speak of
the prospects we have in baseball next
spring. And are we to stand ana see
these prospects doomed? The Uni
versity or JNorth Carolina has never
yet been slow when honor or duty
called. Both are calling now. The
student body will show its metal.
Long ago wedont know how long,
but it must have been some time ago
it was both an honor and a pleasure to
be appointed on a banquet committee.
But now, tell a man he is a member of
such a committee and pale he grows at j
once. Of all harrowing experiences a
man can get in college that of the ban
quet committee is the most harrowing.
Too many men stay away from a class
banquet on account of the price of a
ticket. They decide that they could
go to Gooches and spend that dollar
and a half to more purpose. Possi
bly so. But inside two months you'll
have forgotten that meal at Gooches
if you have recovered from the effects
of it. But remember, if you go to a
class banquet, that there, are seventy
seniors gathered to dine in mutual
jollity, not gathered to be fed, by any
means. When you get out in life and
begin to fight, to fight hard all day
and then come home to rest. Then when
you sit in . reverie how pleasant to recall
that night when you so enjoyed your
self with all the rest of the "good
eggs." Let no one think either that
that this will, never come for him.
Every man has his past always with
him, a blessing or a curse. When you
remember the night of your class ban
quet you'll remember the time you had
and not the price you paid.
