COACH BRIDES SIGNED AGAIN
LONG r DISTANCE PHONE MESSAGE
BRINGS THE GOOD NEWS
Carolina's prospects for next fall ""seem
good. Several old men to be in
Late Friday afternoon a long- dis
tance phone message brought the wel
come news that Arthur E. Brides
would certainly coach the University
of North Carolina football team next
fall. The rumor had been out for a
weetf that the Coach had been signed
up for another season but this had no
more truth in it than that Nat J. Cart
mell had been signed up to coach the
track team and be general athletic
trainer for, three years. . Now however
there can be no doubt as to who will
coach Carolina's football team next
'year. ; '.
' The prospects are that Coach Brides
will have a strong squad to begin work
with in the fall. He will have his old
men, in the line Thompson and Mc
Lain, Hedgpeth and Spainhour, Wil
liams, Winston and Venable; in the
backfield, Belden, Tillett, Belk, and
Porter; and a strong scrub squad who
know his methods. Several new men
are in prospect. Raymond Parker is
said to have a brother coming who is
bigger than the old varsity center. It
is expected that he will make a strong
bid for a line position.. Stewart, a
former center and captain expects to
enter the law class next year." He
hopes to bring with him a new back
field man of some ability. Brides wjll
be here early in" September to inaugu
rate another season of hard work for
all who want to represent Carolina on
the gridiron in 1910. !

CAROLINA'S PROSPECTS OF WINNING
STATE MEET SEEM BRIGHT

; - some lawyer
. "London Assurance" presented in
Gerrard Hall Thursday night by the
University Dramatic Club was by far
the most successful effort of college
dramatists ever pulled off in Chapel
Hill,, The play was amusing in itself
and presented in a manner that seemed
to accentuate its strong points. The
characters were chosen with a saga
city and foresight that made prepa
ration unnecessary. The men (and
th ladies) were all so peculiarly fitted
foi1 their parts that they did not have
to depend upon their dramatic, ability
for success, Affectation was unnec
essary. The cast was strong and in
cluded some stars stars because of
their astonishing capacity for being
The only adverse criticism to be
made of the entertainment was that it
was a trifle too long. Nobody in the
small but select audience was seen to
yawn until the first hour and a half
were passed and few were bored then.
But this fault was in the play not the
presentation and merely brings up the
observation, some one has made, that
an amateur dramatic performance
should always have, if no other, the
actaiirabte feature brevity.
Several new artists made their melo
dramatic debut. The two actors who
were easily the stars of the perfor
mance, Messrs. "Reuben" Oliver as
Mark Meddle and E. A. Roberts as
Lady Gay Spanker, appeared for the
first time. Indeed the whole dramatis
personae was made up of new men
with the exception of H. C. Smith and
J, M. Reeves whose theatrical history
dates back to the legendary day of
Potter andhisr5 of speech. Mx.
Oliver in the character of the meddle
some rural lawyer played his part with
a sang-froid and a" realism that f left
nothing to be desired. Mark Meddle
was by far the most attractive figure
on the stage. Ilis complete m.tstery
of the conversational affectations and
peculiar mannerisms of the prying at
torney was well calculated to draw the
approbation of his critical observers.
A close second to Mr. Oliver, both
as to complete self possession and con
sumate mastery of the small points of
his part, was Mr. Roberts in the char
acter of the dashing horsewoman Lady
Gay Spanker. 1 he pretty face and
domineering manner of Lady Gay were
as attractive to the audience as to Sir

role, Dazzle, carried off his part well.
