VARSITY LOSES NORFOLK GAME
EXCESSIVE NUMBER OF FUMBLES ALLOWS WASH
INGTON AND LEE TO SCORE ON US
Carolina's Gains Much Greater than Opponenent's, Bad
Handling of the Ball Being the Only Ex
planation of the Result ,
Washington and Lee, 5; Carolina, 0.
We were beaten.- Miserable handling
of the ball was the cause.
Cutting out our bad passing and
fumbling we easily , outplayed the
Washington and Lee eleven. We
made twenty-seven first downs, while
they made but three. Our punting
averaged 40 yards to their 30. But
what's the use; they got the game and
We had a beautifnl chance to bag the
game in the opening period. We had
the ball on W. and L's 35 yard line.
Belk fell back to bunt. Instead of
booting he shot the oval over the line
to Applewhite. Applewhite dashed 20
yards. Tackled on W. and L's 3 yard
line he dropped the ball. ...A W. and
L. man nabbed it. They at ' once
kicked it beyond the danger mark and
our best chance to score was gone.
Washington and Lee braced .up in
the second forward and play' was about
even. Belk failed at a drop from the
35 yard line.
Our goose was cooked to a nice
crisp brown in the third quarter. W.
and L. got the pigskin on our 40 yard
line. They made two first downs in
succession. Then we held them and
go 1 1 he bal 1 on our 15 y a rd 1 ine. Be 1 k
called a kick formation. The pass was
bad. The ball barely tipped Belk's
fingers and bounced over the line.
Belk got it and made a magnificent
effort to reach safe territory. He got
there all right, but dropped the ball
when tackled. It again rolled back of
the line, a Vvr. and L. man fell on it
and the game was won. W. and L.
failed to make a fair catch on the kick
out and .no goal was kicked.
There was little doing the rest of
the game. In the last quarter play
was in our own territory most of the
time, Belk did little but punt, hoping
we would recover and get a chance to
score, but we didn't.
Washington and Lee put up a fair
game, but they were extremely lucky
to come out on top. They didn't win
the game. We handed it to them on a
silver platter labeled "Take it."-
We should have won by two or three
touchdowns. We gained plenty of
ground, but handling the ball as
though we had greased hands, kept
us - from counting as well as it al
lowed the other bunch to count. Our
backs played well. Calmes sliced off
some good games. Belk punted a nice
average of 40 yards. Venable and
Applewhite played grandly. Aber
nethy was the star of the line.

; ' Class Team of the University Win Over
Greensboro High School
Saturday, in Greensboro, for the
first time in four years, the freshmen
defeated the Greensbors High School.
The score was 9-0.
In the first two periods the fresh-
men had all the better of it.' Receiv
ingjthe kick off they advanced the ball
by nd runs and forward passes to the
25 yard line. Held there for two downs.
Worth stepped back and booted the
ovaf between the poles for the first
three points. ; In the second quarter
the freshmen rushed the ball to the 40
yard line. A lontr pass was made to
Blackmer who dashed across the line
for a touchdown. . Allen kicked goal.
This ended the counting.
: Plav in the final periods , was fairly
even, Greensboro made desperate ef
forts to score but the High School
bOvs found the freshmen defense too
much for them. . "
Greensboro put up a hard game but
they weren't "classy" enough. Coffin
was their star.
The youngest sons put up a good
all around game. They made fourteen
successful forward, passes. Worth,
Jones, Blackmer and Long deserve
mention. .. . :

Commons Hall in Prosperous Condition
There are now two hundred and
ten boarders at Commons Hall, which
is more than have been there at any
time within the last several , years.
This large number of; boarders allows
the house to give great deal better
board ' andf service than can be triven
when there .are only a lew boarders,
the running expenses of the house be
ing practically the same for a small
number as for a large number. So
each additional boarder means that
more money per capita can be put into
procuring food. ' , .
In addition to this, the large num
ber of boarders allows many of the
self-help students to earn their board
while in college. There are now nine
teen of these students who are earning
their board by waiting on the tables at
Commons. There- are six others who
get their board by working in the
kitchen,; while another two receive
their board in return for services ren
dered at the wood-pile: .
Both Teams Play Good BalL Parsley's Field Goal
the Feature that Won the Game
for the Seniors
I For three quarters the sophomores
and seniors fought to a standstill Sat
urday. Although the seniors for the
most part outplayed their opponents,
they could not cross 1913's goal line,
and it was only by Parsley's beautiful
field goal just before the close of the
third quarter that 1911 won the gam?.
The ball see-sawed around the field
during the whole contest with the sen
iors always the agressors. 1913 play
ed a defensive game; in fact, during
the entire first quarter the sophomores
did not carry the ball. 1911, though
the aygressor, lacked team work.
' Both teams played hard ball. Capt.
Solomon, Rodrigues, Coke and Pars
ley did good work for the seniors.
Cocke and Manning played well for
1913. Manning's one attempt at field
goal came perilously near being suc

Yale's athletics during the past year
has cost the University $130,626.17.
The cost of athletics for 1910 at Har
vard was $127,945.99,. and the total
receipts were $130,982.07.
Dramatic Club to Play Later
It looks now as if there will be no
play given by the Dramatic club this
fall. This has been a disappointment
to the Dramatic club and the coach,
Mr. George McF. McKie, and the stu
dents will doubtless regret this, since
the fall term of the college year
has been noticeably devoid of any
evening entertainment except, one
single star course. The real rea
son why no play has been yet selected
by the committee appointed by Presi
dent Henry Smith is because two great
handicaps stand in the way. First,
the costumes which have to be procur
ed for old English or medieval plays
are entirely too expensive. Second,
most modern plays, which would take
well here, all require a royalty to be
paid. It is the desire of the club to
find a strong play of English, French
or early American origin, that can
employ modern costuming.
The size of the stage in Gerrard
hall has always to be considered in se-
lecting a play, so much so that a ;
musical comedy is out of the question.
Already, many new men have ex
pressed their desire to become candi
dates for both leading-and minor roles.
The young lady question ought to be .
rather easier to solve this year, since
there are a number of willowy figures,
coupled with soft, feminine voices,
that will aspire for female roles when
candidates are asked to come forth.
If there, is any one who is interest
ed and well-informed enough to sug
gest a suitable play during the, next
week, he might speak to either of the
following gentlemen who compose the
committee: Messrs. George McKie,
Henry Smith or J. F. Oliver,
