column in front of Gerrard Hall and,
led by the University band, marched
around the Athletic Field, singing
"I'm a Tar Heel Born," while the
Varsity and "Scrubs" were engaging
in their afternoon scrimmage. It was
such a demonstration of college spirit
as has not been seen here for many a
day. When the long line of rooters
had taken a position on the south side
of the field, the Carolina yells with
the names of Brides, Big Tommy,
Cox. Trenchard, and the whole team
added, were given with a vim.
Before going to the field, the students

of supporting- the train, sonars were
practiced, and a statement made with
regard to the excursion to Richmond.

a. ni. and returning leaves for Chapel
Hill at 12:00 o'clock Thursday nigh

An invitation has been extended by

on the evening of Thursday, Novem
ber the twenty-fourth. This German,
given annually to the students of the
two Universities, will be held in the

The Interest Being Manifested by Students in Football
and Tennis Does not Prevent a Large Attend
ance at the Gymnasium
If anyone will take the trouble to
glance into the gymnasium any after
noon while the class is going on, he
will see the gymnasium floor crowded
to its capacity with students going
through the afternoon drill. . Dr. Law
son's talk in the chapel not long ago,
on the subject of exercise, has very
evidently borne' fruit, judging from
the way interest in gj innasium work
has grown up since. Dr. Lawson stat
ed that he did not see how the work
could be going on any better than it
is at present, the floor being full every
This extraordinary interest in this
form of exercise is all the more re
markable considering the fact that the
football season is now at its height;
that interest in class football, aside
from Varsity practice, is now at its
highest pitch; that tennis is prosper
ing as never before; that track work
even now has its devotees. All of this
argues a healthy athletic sentiment in
the University. ' ' ' '
Some really good work is being done
in the gymnasium; there are a few fel
lows who seem to be determined to go
right ahead until they will be wearing
North Carolina sweaters about the
campus. It would be a problem to
know how to take care of so many
candidates were it not for the fact that
several old sweater men have gener
ously volunteered to assist Dr. Lawson
in his efforts to train the students.
The gymnasium work is carried on
under a handicap, owing to lack of
a sufficient number of assistants. Dr.
Lawson expresses his obligations to
several of the old men who have been
of great assistance to him without re
muneration, notably, Messrs. Henry C
Smith and F. J. Duls.
The men in college who have the
riffht to wear erymnasium sweaters
are Parsley, Smith, Nash, Allison
(assistant in gymuasinm), Duls and
Carter. Among the promising candi
dates should be mentioned: Murchison,
Hughes, Lasly, HelsebaCK, Drane,
Lyon and Turnage. Of the freshmen
who are doing good work, considering
their experience, are Curtis, btrong,
Morrison and Willey. It is planned to
have an exhibition sometime later in
the year, possibly early in December.
Monday Night Entertainment at Gerard Hal .
An hour of genuine enjoyment will
be given those who gather in Gerard
Hall Monday nisrht at 7:30. Therehas
been no star course or other public en
tertainment for the month of Novem
ber, and the chapel will probably be
filled to its capacity for the forthcom
ing1 affair, which will be of a nature to
suit the fastidious and the easy-going,
the cultured lover of high-class art
and the untutored devotee of farce and
fun. The musical program will in
clude vocal solos by Mr. Sneath and
Miss Bright, the violin, clarionet and
orchestra. The "stunt" features will
include the reading of the prophetic
description of the Thanksgiving game,
a five-round boxing contest, and a foot
ball game between the Man Eaters of
Crocodile College and the Bull-frogs
of Slimy Slough University. The pro
ceeds will be divided between the Y.

kickoff they began a double quick for
the goal line, their backs tearing off

Barker failed to kick goal. In the
last two minutes of the period the
seniors had a small chance to score.
They got the ball on the 25 yard mark,
but there was a fumble and Hoffman
got it. '
There was little doing in the second
quarter, neither team getting in reach
of the goal. Iu the third, the twelves
began another march towards the
touchdown mark. 1 hey reached the
15 yard line, but the seniors held firm

other games, their team work was

Thinks that Virginia and Carolina Are Pretty Evenly
Matched The " Yale-Princeton Game
of the South"
In his "Shafts from Sportland," in
Thursday's Richmond Times Dispatch,
G. Malbert gives the following sum
mary of what he considers the pros
pects for the Thanksgiving game:
"Now that we are in the shank of
the football season local interest is
centered in two games; the one on
Thanksgiving Day and the one to fol
low on the Saturday after Thanksgiv
ing. North Carolina and Virginia get
together on the holiday, and Rich
mond College plays Randolph-Macon
two days afterwards. As to the first
game, the S. R. O. sign will be out
early. Recent developments have made
many of us come to the conclusion that
Carolina and Virginia are more evenly
matched than was believed earlier in
the season. In fact it might be stated
that the Corolina-Virginia game is
the local Princeton-Yale affair. If it
were up to me to do the pointing out I
should say that Carolina is the Yale of
the coming game. It might be well to
dwell further on the subject, but you
know what Yale did.
"Princeton was the favorite, and
rightly so, if one is to rely on previous
records. Then Yale waked-up a bit,
tightened up its collective weakened
attitude, doctored upKilpatrick, threw
out a scare about Vaughan being run
in at the other end and but as Kip
ling says, that's another story. In the
present instance it looks like Virginia
can't lose; but Carolina trains for but
one game, and that game happens on
Thanksgiving Day. Under these con
ditions a wonderful team can be built
up. In the first place, even though
every other game on the schedule may
be played to win, the tactics pursued
are the tactics which would stop the
team it is desired to beat in the crucial
game of the season. The same tactics,
which might be all right to accomplish
the main purpose in mind, might prove
disastrous against other teams.
If Brides is wise, and there are few
who doubt his football wisdom, this is
just what he has been doing all the
season. If his team wins on Thanks
giving Day the other defeats will be
forgotten and he will be acclaimed, by
the North Carolinians at least, as the
greatest football coach of the age. He
has had ample opportunity to study
Virginia's style of play. There never
was a style of play invented in a foot
ball game which could not be stopped,
as witness the old tackle-back forma
tion by Pennsy, which for some time
was so formidable. Now if Brides has
been doing what I believe he has, then
watch Virginia tret stopped on those
sweeping end runs."
In further commenting on the two
teams, the writer has only one criti
cism to make of the Carolina eleven,
viz: That with the splendid individual
players of which it is composed, its
team work has been below the stand
ard.' - ,
Owing to the amount of work he is
carrying, Mr. A. W. Graham has
found it necessary to resign his posK
