Score 6 to 0
Our bunch' turned the tricks but they
had the time of their lives doing- it. It
was the fiercest football curtain raiser
ever pulled off on the Hill. The 6--o in
The; game was interesting but nol
spectacular. It was a steady, dogged
fight from start to finish. V. M. I. con
siderably out weighed, fought like a
bunch; of wild cats on a spree. Their
snap and ginger was marvelous and
they had us going to some extent in
the first half.
Neither team did any effective offen
sive work in the first quarter. Our beef
and brawn stopped their ferocious asr
saults'while their speed .smashed ovci
our plays before they were well started.
In the second quarter the cadets had
a slight chance to score, the only one
they , had during the game., Belk at
tempted to punt. The oval went, low
and Was stopped by Dal ton, V. M. I.V
left guard, on Carolina's 30 yard line.
Moore put it on tlie 25. Then the sol
diers lost three. They tried a forward
pass. Belk grabbed it and sprinted 20
yards. A little later Porter went thru
the line for 15 yards. Ritch followed
with 5 around right' end. V. M. I.
broke up a forward pass, though,' and
the quarter ended with nothing doing
in the. scoring Hue. , '
Carolina began the last half with
more vigor than they.-, had previously
shown. Mc.Lane and and Abcrnethy
displaced Parker and Ross on the right
side of the line The teams began to
see-saw around the middle of the licit'.
Suddenly Winston got away for h
yards around right end. Wakely and
Porter added 8 more, putting the ball
on tne 15 yard line. It began to look
interesting, but we failed to gain and
the moleskin went over. The end of
the period found the score still 0-0.
Ruff in t( o' Wakely's half at the be
ginning of the last quarter. .The play
was in V. M. I. territory. Afler nu
merous failures to advance the ball both
aggregations took to booting. Belk
tried a field goal from the 30 yard line.
It fell short and there was more punt
ing. Btik fell back for a kick but in
stead made a long pass to Winston,
Winston dashed 30 yards and put the
posts. Spencer, at left half, the last
six minutes of play kicked goal in nice
style. The cadets made a desperate at
tempt to advance in the last few min
utes but time was called with play still
in their part of the field.
All of the visitors played jam up ball.
Dalton, Dasheiell, TCinsolving and
Moore deserve sepcial mention. Our
fellows worked hard in the first half
but they were rather slow. In the last
two periods their play was more spirit

Belk Porter and Spencer did nice work.

WEEKS MAKES GOOD
LARGE CROWD ENTHUSIASTICALLY
j RECEIVES FIRST STAR COURSE
Entertainment Consisting of Music and
j Impersonations By Company of
j Three People
" Did Weeks and his company make a
hit? well, rather. : Possibly the result
of: the afternoons football game had
something to do with it by putting
everybody in a good humor, but un
questionably Mr. .Weeks and the two
fair members of his company received
the grandest .reception that has ever
been accorded , a Star-Course entertain
ment within the memory . of the stu
dents now at Chapel Hill. Loud ap
plause and tumultous cheers were the
order of the evening.
Mr. Weeks won the good graces ol
the students from the start by his
clever allusions to the white and blue
foot ball aggregation. After the
monologue, the Carolina men who
packed Gerrard Hall were with him
heart and soul. Mr, Weeks lived up
to his reputation as the most humor
ous entertainer available for. lyceum
wprk. . With his unusual versatility
he was indeed enable to give, with the
co-operation furnished by his two as
sistant, all the variety usually furnish
edj by half a dozen artists. Moreover
there was a delicacy and gentle refine
ment "about his humor which gave it a
rare charm. V
. jMrs, Weeks completely cap t u red . h er
audience by the soft, sweet tones of
her voice, the wonderful grace of her
movements, and the personal charm of
her appearance. Her part in the little
operetta "School Days" was carried
through in a naive manner that wou
Miss Lula Sinclair played the violin
like a master. ... Her tones seem to have
a richness that was remarkable, and
that she appealed to the students was
attested by the vigor of the encores
It is' easy. to understand that her teach
er, the world famed Adolph Weidig,
pronounced her one of the most gifted
violinists he has ever has the pleas
ure of teaching.

Pichard's store.- A door at the top
of the outside stairway leads into the
hall through which the room is ap
proached. t Hearing a crowd trying t
break in at this door, Parker got up
and fired In the direction of the noise
His roommate who was already up was
struck in ' the heck by the ball.1 ! i '
Fairly has been under the care of
Doctor McNider. and is doing well.
The ball has not yet been located,
but it is thought that a simple opera
tion will remove it when found. ' 1

BIG DAY AT M. E. CHURCH
METHODIST STUDENTS GIVEN A
SPECIAL DAY BY PASTOR
, The Macon County Club -met Satur
day, and initiated three new members
and elected officers for this year. J. R.
Sloan was elected President; F. II.
Higdon, Vice President, and G.. C.
Mann Secretary and Treasury. The
club arranged to have a banquet at
their next meeting.
Addresses by Professors Edwin Mints,
, .'; H. H. Williams, and C. L. Ra
j per. Good Attendance
The Methodist church was taxed
to its capacity. Sunday morning bja
crowd which assembled to hear an ad
dress by Dr. Edwin Minis on ''Pioneer
Methodism." In part his address was
In a certain sense the church of God
is a universal thing. More and moie
the distinctions of sect ! are passing
away. Still there are some who think
of God's- church as the particular
church to which they1 are ceremonially :
attached. It is natural that some hal
lowed associations should cling. to the
church with which we have long been
connected. ; It is of the early history
of; a particular branch of the univer
sal church, the Methodist, that I wish
to speak. We may learn much from
the heroism ' and fidelity of pioneer
Methodism. -i . ' .. ; i
The background of the movement
which was begun by John Wesley and
which was the foundation cf Method
ism is the social and intellectual life
of England in the eighteenth century.
In its reaction against the asceticism
mysticism, and superstition of the
middle ages England had become a
land of gayety, social pleasures, and
intellectual pursuits. The great cen
ter of this gay life was , London. In
this age John Wesley appeared with
his more rigorous ideas of conduct and
of life than was held by the church of
England. His life was one of strenu
ous work, hardships, and altruistic ser
vice. He was not only a great preach-
erv but & great organizer. He; estab
lished schools.: s He crystal ized. his
work, thus laying the basis of what
later became the Methodist church.
In America Methodism early took
root and began to . spread. The cir
cuit rider in the, American wilderness
on the frontier as civilization extend
ed itself, is one of the heroic figures of
our early history. -
Bishop Asbury was the most noted
of the very early circuit riders. He
did a prodigious amount of work,
crossing the Allighanies sixty times
ordaining four thousand preachers,
riding on , horseback in five years a
distance equal to the circumference of:
the globe. . ; .
'The great danger of an advancing
civilization, is that the hardihood and
sturdy ruggidness i f a pioneer life may
be lost. The problem is to retain in
the refinements of modem life the
strength and vigor of our fathers. It
is to know, the Methodism of the past,
to keep the spirit, the strength,, and
the faith, of our herioc , forefathers,
and yel to . move . forward to the ac
complishment of the tasks of the pre
sent time. . .
The Principles of Methodism
. Three hundred students crowded the
church Sunday night to listen to ad
dresses by Prof. H. II. Williams and
Doctor Charles E. Raper. ;
Dr. Williams spoke on the Principles
of Methodism. They must, he said, -.
be interpreted philosophically, and ;
psychologically. : .; s , , .
