Carolina meets Washington and Lee
hpre Satmdav in the last dual track
meet of this season. The records
made during- this meet will serve in
large measure to forecast the parti
Carolina will play in the State meet to
be held in Raleigh during May. f
Last year Washington and Lee won
from Carolina on their home grounds
at Lexington by the narrow margin of
58 to 50. In that meet Carolina took
first place in six events, Washington
and Lee, in five, and they tied in one.
A good many of Washington and
Tpp's old men are back and the meet
this year promises to be as hotly con
tested as it was last year.
From such reports as are available
it annears that Washington and Lee

is strong along the same general
lines that Carolina does best. jThey
are especially strong in the half-mile,
low hurdles, pole vault, and dashes.
Their hundred yard man holds their
collegiate record of 10 1-5 seconds. ?
Carolina, however, will 'hardly be
walked over in these events. Our
men in the half-mile, low hurdles, and
dashes, are pretty good. Winston ran
the 100 yds. in 10 1-5 seconds against
V. P. I. and has the state record at
- The pole vault alone promises to be
worth anyone's quarter. Already the
standards for the vault are being
lengthened in the expectation that
both vaulters will clear them as they
stand. Robbins of Washington and
Lee, won the pole vault at the indoor
meet held in Richmond in February.
He is considered as probably the best

Thirteen points given away on ac
count of insufficient number of
men on trip
Carolma lost the track meet to Vir
ginia Polytechnic Institute Saturday
eveninjr in Blacksburgf oy the score of
65 1-2 to 53 1-3. 1
Scarcity of entries clearly lost the
meet for Carolina. In every event
V. P. I. entered the full limit of men.
In only three of the thirteen events did
Carolina do so. Never over two men
did she enter save in the mile and
sometimes only one. In failure .of en
try Carolina, gave away 13 points to
her opponents. Don't misunderstand
that Carolina freely gave heropponents
this advantage without reason. Fi
nancial inability to carry more men on
the trip, and Coach Carlmell's wisdom
in preventing a pole vaulter from run
ning, or a runner from jumping, caused
the depletion in entries. Despite far
fewer men in events Carolina won sev
en nrsts, six seconds, ana uea lor one
third place. V. P. I. won six firsts,
seven sccouus, twelve ana one nan
thirds. Xlearly numbers outclassed
Carolina's winnings were, good per
formances. Bob Winston tied the V.
P. I. record on the 100 yd. dash and
owered the 220 yd. record from 24 1-5
to 22 4-5 sec. Parsley defeated the
record holder for the pole vault. Ruffin
mashed the high hurdle record by a
ull point. Atkinson beat the . ham-
mer record by seven ieet. JUiorens took
away from them the glory of two mile
traditions in 11 niin. 23 sec. Of rec
ords Carolina smashed a few and tho
defeated in the meet won her winnings
Coach Cartmell expresses himself as
pleased and gratified by the showing
the team made. In view of the poor
condition of the track he thinks they
did very creditable work. ,

STUDENTS, FACULTY, STATE
FEEL VACANCY LEFT BY
Speakers: Hon: Josephus Daniels
of Raleigh, Prof. W. S. Bernard
and A. H. Wolfe
Many students and a large number
of the faculty gathered in Gerrard
Hall last Sunday afternoon to pay a
tribute of respect and affection to Dr.
Eben Alexander, late Professor of
Greek and Dean of the University.
The memorial service was presided
over by Dr. Battle. It was most fit
ting tnat JJr. .Battle, nimseir a man
who has given his life to this institu
tion, should preside over, the service
in honor of one who likewise has giv
en the power or his intellect aud the
love of his heart to the University of
The service was opened with a pray
er by Mr. Hogue. The Glee Club
sang a Latin Ode, after which Dr.
Battle made a short talk that showed
his own deep, personal friendship for
Dr. Alexander. He paid simple trib
ute to the brilliant intellect, the deep
learning, the statesmanship, but above
all, to the perfect courtesy and kindly
thoughtlfulness of others that so dis
tinguished Dr. Alexander. He told of
of Dr. Alexander's service to the uni
versity, of his devotion to his family,
and especially of his deep love for
that son whose untimely death was
5uch a severe blow to the father. Dr.
Battle spoke as a man on whom many
years of intimate contact with Dr.
Alexander had made their impress.
Mr. A. H. Wolfe presented the stud
ents' estimate of Dr. Alexander. The
present student body, he said, knew
Dr. Alexander only as seen thru the
haze of his mechanical duties as Dean.
And to show the students' estimate
of him before he became Dean, Mr.
Wolfe read from an editorial in the Tar
Heel of 1897 on the return of Dr.
Alexander to the university after his
service of four years as Minister to
Greece the following sentence: "The
Tar Heel points the students of the
day to a man; those who are more
closely associated with him in the
class room are to be envied; they will
find in him dignity inviting approach,
sympathy that understands, advice
that does not sting." This estimate of
a decade ago is the estimate of today.
Among the chief qualities, said the
speaker, that gave Dr. Alexander this
place was his Robt. E. Lee-like cour
tesy and politeness, which has left its
ineffaceable impress on the mind of
every student. He closed with these
words: '"Add to courtesy of manner,
simplicity of life; sympathy and inter
est in humanity; and to these, a fixed
ness of purpose and devotion to duty,
and you have the elements in Dr.
Alexander's character that appeal
most strongly to the student body.
Combine with these four qualities,
the scholar, the diplomat, and the
statesman, and you can understand
why Dr. Alexander is always referred

HEDGPETH PITCHES GOOD

A combination of errors gives on

nominal Errors by Carolina and her inabliity
to hit pitcher Anderson gave the Navy
a 1 to 0 victory at Annapolis Satur
day. Despite some grave transgressions
and extreme weakness in hitting the
ball, the game is reported to have
been at times brilliant with sharply
executed plays. In fielding the Navy
much surpassed Carolina, but in hit
ting Carolina got the best of it.
Hedgpeth was on the mound for
Carolina and twirled a game worthy
of a better score. Had his support
been what it should have the score
would not have occurred, for a com
bination of errors ushered Osbourne
across the plate. Hedgpeth forced
nine batters to fall prone to his wily
curves. Only two of the Navy's bat
ters could safely connect, and their
hits came not together. ;
Anderson, for the Navy, also work
ed well. He fanned an equal number
with Hedgpeth and allowed only one
wore hit. Each pitcher passed four
Carolina's slack fielding may be
largely attributed to a relapse from the
tension of hard-fought games with
Guilford, Davidson, Kentucky, and
finally Virginia. After four straight
victories the. strain had told.
