riors by the score of 20 to 0. It was
jratiie replete with interesting- situa
tions and marked by the never-die
spirit of the Carolinians. Time and
again, when they were swept off their
feet by the sturdy band of cadets, the
men in the Blue and White came back
with added force. Despite the fact
that they were outplayed, .thoy put up
a oluckv resistance until the final
whistle of the referee declared tin
game to be over.

Carolina, kicked to the Techs' ten-
yard line, and from that time on there
was no cessation of hostilities. Caro
lina never knew that she was ben ten.
The men wearing1 the "V" of the Old
North State kept , up the fight until
the last second of play. True, they
played with the desperation of despair,
but it was nevertheless good to watch
the way they came back from time to
time, showing" more than once a dash
and brilliancy of attack that swept the
Blacksburg contingent off its feet
! It was apparent that Carolina out-
weighed Blacksburg, and the Orange
and Maroon crowd for a moment lost
heart. In preliminary signal practice
before the game Carolina also looked
to be mighty fast. There is but one
explanation, oi the defeat, and that is
that V. P. I. played the best i game.
The line was adamant itself ? on de
fensive, and simply bowled over
Blue and White defense when
Blacksburg backs were carrying
As stated in this paper before, Caro
lina lacked team work. Captain
Thompson, Belk, Ruffin and Calmes
each played brilliant individual foot
ball, but when it came to the pinches
the defense was lacking and the man
with the ball was left to hoe his own
row. unaes is certaimy up against a
hard proposition. There are too many
stars on the team. -
Blacksburg, on the other hand,
played ,aa , one man. Little Hughes
with his 4 column right" and Vcclumn
left," seemed to imbue each man with
but one desire, and that was to reach
the opponents' goal by any means.
Many times the Techs were penalized,
but never did they stop.. Old footlball
players looked on the attacking for
wards of the Orange and Maroon with
pleasure, recalling olden times. F.' H.
Legge,W. R.;Legge, Derby, Captain
Hodgson, and, in fact, every man on
the team - shone brightly. It was a
great day foe the Blacksburg team.
Many of the spectacular features of
a football game were missing. The
college songs and yells were , conspicu
ous by their absence, - This was due to
the fact that few students of either of
the two great schools were in attend
ance.! But: sizing the game up from
every angle it was more than worth

the discussions with a review of the
work at present being done by the
leading chemists of the world in deter
mining the true atomic weight of the
rare element tellurium. The atomic
weight of tellurium has always up to
recent years been found to be heavier
than it should - be, according to the
periodic arrangement of the elements,
it being heavier than another element
of . the same group, namely, iodine,
which is unnaturaL This gave rise to
the suspicion that this abnormal atomic
weight was due to an impurity, which
has really proved to be the" case. By
repeated tests of different chemists,
carefully and ingeniously made, the
atomic weight of tellurium has been
reduced to; a number more like what
should be expected, and which' places
it befow iodine. It is proving to be a
very difficult matter, however, to de
termine the nature of the impurity,
but progress is being made iii this di

No, officers were elected and in the
future there will be no formal pro
grams. Absolute informality, will be
aimed at, the meetings will be more
round table affairs than formal meet
ings, and discussions will be general,
; There is no restriction in member

who are interested will attend. It
was suggested-and adopted with much
apprbval-that each man who attends
pay, a few cents with which .cigars
will be bought. Candy or fruits wil
sometimes be bought for those who do
not suioke,-an oyster supper was even
suggested. The next meeting will be
held in the Old West Building on the
first Monday night in December. Th
subject to be discussed is "Lessons to

Directory of Students and Faculty
The College Directory gotten out
under the supervision of the Y. M. C.
A. is here at last. Owing to the fact
that advertisements had to be secured
to defray expenses, The editor was at
least one month late. There are some
mistakes among the names, but as a
whole it is a fairly neat job. Quite a
new departure is the advetnsing fea
ture found in the directory. Only
Greensboro interests are" represented.
On the first page is found an adver
tisement for the Greensboro Chamber
of Commerce which will be of interest
to young men about to enter the busi
ness world. The insurance companies
are well represented also.
As to New library Books
.To the question asked as to how a
new book, or periodical may be secured
for the Library, when suh a book or
periodical is not on file in the Library,
Dr. Wilson has said that a personal in
terview with him, or a written peti
tion handed to him, giving satisfactory
reasons for the purchase of such a book
or periodical, will receive immediate
consideration.. It is the desire of the
Library authorities to furnish its read
ers with as many of the new books
and periodicals of especial note, as the
funds of its special departments can

; In a magnificent gridiron struggle
"Carolina" defeated "Virginia" on the
Athletic Field, Saturday, 6-0.' The
Tar Heels put up a wonderful fight
and deserved to win.
The game was of the blood curdling
kind. "Virginia" presented a forrnid
able lineup of big handsome gentle
men. The "'Carolinians" were not as
handsome as' Pat ' Bivins, ! Ike Moser,
Thompson, and Roberson etcetera
l?ut what they ' lacked in beauty
they more than made up for in fight
There was little doing in ' the ' first
quarter. Carolina had the ball most
of the time but could get no closer
than the 40 yard line. h'
The second period began with the
oval in the posessibn of "Virginia .
Fearing to spoil their beauty by butt
ing the line they tried a forw.ard pass.
Hughes for "Carolina" grabbed it and
shot 50 yards for a touchdown. Bill
Ellis kicked a difficult goal.; ' The
Tar Heel rooters were delirious with
During the last quarters both elevens
were hardly if ever surpassed in the
history of football. However, neither
side counted and the final score was
0 for Carolina. ; j
The "Virginians" put up a fair
game. jvioser ana Morgan played
hard. Bivins had a lot of spirit.
Thompson punted some genuine psy
chological curves. Roberson managed
to keep from getting hurt. ' -
Most of the Carolinians played su
perbly. Mr. McCiil loch ran the team
with wonderful strategy' Buchan
played the game of his life. Parker
and Martin whirled around the ends
in beautiful style. Lee reminded us
of Ted Coy in the way he got his
kicks off. Several of them went 20
yards. Wright held down left end in
fine style, j Hough id his only quarter
of play distinguished himself by al
ways being' where the ball 'wasn't.
McEachern, however, was the partic- 1
ular star. He broke- up halt of the
enemy's plays. The "Virginia"center
and, gvards looke on him with horror.
