to Davidson's 8. But Davidson
came back strong in the second half
and said "We may look easy but we
aint. Look out." And they then pro
ceeded to show us what real basket
ball looks like. They were here, there,
and everywhere. . Before a Carolina
man could turn around Davidson had
got the ball at one end of the field,
carried it to the other end, and taken
three shots at the goal and would be
getting ready for the fourth. They
were. fast as a streak, and guarding
them was about like t,rying to corner
fleas in Memorial Hall. They were
by all odds the fastest team that has
been seen on the hill. And, in addi
tion to this, they were the hardest,
cleanest pi a vers,- and the best sports
that we have yet run up against in
But despite all this Carolina got
there. The team worked rather slow
but fought hard enough to make up
for it. Carolina went in with the in
tention of having that scalp to atone
in a measure, for that football farce
of last fall. We got it but well we
held it by about as strong a hold as a
man can get on a greased pig's tail
we came out two points ahead. But in
the last few minutes of play the out
come was looking exceedingly doubt
ful. In fact the score, was just a little
too close to suit our appetite.
On the whole the game was the
fastest one, and the best exhibition of
basketball that has been seen here yet.
Davidson played very good ball but
Carolina did not play up to her stand

play near the ball that we should have

Every Student in the State Asked to Make Contribution
to Memorial I
At its annual meeting in June, 1910,
at W rightsvill e, the North Carolin a
Press Association resolved, to erect a
memorial to' Edgar Wilson (Bill) Nye.
Its committee met in Salisbury, Wed
nesday, July 6, in formal session, and
after hearing all the propositions be
fore it unanimously decided:
1. That the memorial to the lament
ed humorist shall take the form of a
memorial building, to be one of the
group and a pa:t of the Stonewall
Jackson Training School, generally
known as the State Reformatory, in
Cabarrus county, near Concord.
2. That the building, furnished and
equipped as the trustee of the institu
tion may direct, to the best advantage
for the rescue of errant boys, shall cost
not Jess than $5,000, and shall be
known as the "Bill Nye Memorial
, 3. That while the committee be
lieves that this memorial should be
distinctively North Carolina's tribute
to the lamented man of letters, it
deems it wise, in order to ensure the
prompt success of the movement and
further to permit the friends of Bill
Nye outside the State an opportunity
to contribute to this movement, that
contributions from outside the State
should be gratefully received and ac
knowledge, while not solicited.
The committee believes further that
it made a wise and happy selection in
the form of this memorial; that noth
ing it might have conceived would
have brought a greater joy to the
heart of the gifted, kindly man whose
memory it is designed to perpetuate,
than the great work of making useful
citizens of wayward boys, and that
were he present with us in the flesh
today it would have the stamp of his
approval. Furthermore, the commit
tee bespeaks the hearty co-operation
of the brethren of the press especially,
and all good citizens generally in this
undertaking. It is a labor of love
one that has already been too long
neglected, to the shame of North Car
olina. Let us put our shoulders to the
wheel and show to the world what
North Carolina can do for the man it
delights to honor.
Interested in this movement to se
cure a memorial to Bill Nye, the state
board of education has set aside the
22nd of Febuary for Bill Nye Day in
the public schools. It is the purpose
of Superintendent Joyner to give this
day over to exercises and programs of
the life and works of the great humor
ist Every school child and college
student as well as teachers and pat
rons will be asked to contribute at least
one penny to the Bill Nye Memorial
Fund, which if done, will yield a good
addition to the fund. University men
can ill afford to allow such an oppor
tunity to pass, an opportunity to hon
or one of North Carolina's greatest
adopted sons. Were it not a memo
rial to Mr. Nye, the contribution that
the building itself will be to erring
boys makes it a worthy object. Were
the memorial of another nature, the
memory of Bill Nye would in itself be
sufficient for any Tar Heel to be glad
to contribute. Combined the man andj

Dean McGeehee the first of the law

The Dean then spoke of the profes

the importance of thorough study and
preparation for a lawyer.
In response Mr. Roach Stewart got
off some of his characteristic humor.

more serious: "An T here is of little

) Professor P. II. Winston was the
next speaker from the ' faculty. He
told a number of excellent stories and
then besought the law students to join
closer with the academic men in sup-
porting the University as a whole.
Mr. J. II. Carter responded to Prof.
Winston in an impressive little talk.
'fThe law has honored us, let us honor
it," were his final words. I
Prof. A. C. Mcintosh and Mr. C.
S. Keeble were on the program but
were unable to attend. Mr.W. R. Ed

to take Mr. Keekle's place.
Mr. Edmonds made an earnest plea
for the upholding of high ideals of the
profession of law.
Mr. Edmonds' talk concluded the
program and informal speeches were
in order. A dozen future barristers
embraced the opportunity to get off
some eloquence and wit.
The affair was pronounced a huge
success. J he banquet committee,

Managtr Stockton has practically
completed the track schedule for this
spring. A perusal of this schedule
will show that Coach Cartmell and his
men have some hard work before
The following is the schedule as far
as it has been arranged:
April 1, Wake Forest at Wake For
est. April 8, Washington Lee at Lex
ington. April 22, Southern intercollegiate
meet at Charlottsville, Va.
April 29, V, P. I. at Chapel Hill.
Besides these four meets, there will
probably be an interstate meet at
Raleigh This is by no means a cer
tainty yet, but if it can be arranged
for our open date, April 15, or Easter
Monday it will be held.
It will be noted that the only meet
on the Hill will be with V. P. I. Both
the manager and the coach expect
this contest to arouse unusual interest.
This will be the first time that V. P.
I's track "aggregation" has been seen
here, and Caoch says that he is "lay-1
ing for them" to wipe out the defeat
that we suffered at their hands last
year at Blacksburg.
Another new feature of the sche
dule is the Southern intercollegiate

best track men will enter in this con

In the main the coach thinks, con
sidering the short training and the '
small number of men out on the track,
that the team will be a good one.
Coach Cartmell's plea now is for
more men, "Get more men out" he
says. "It doesn't matter what they
look like or what they can do. There's
no cutting of the squad. I will work
three years to get one good year's
work out of a man. This is the last
year for many of the varsity track
men and the teams for next year and
the following years, depend upon the
new men that get into training now."
As the Tar Heel goes to press the
manager of the track team announces
that a meet with Wake Forest seems
doubtful and that Clemson or David
son may fill the date.
