VIRGINIA COPS SECOND
AND LAST GAME OF SEASON
Carolina Puts Up Stubborn Fight, but Virginia'
Weight and Teamwork Win.
Fighting with the gameness that
characterized the set-to last Friday
night, Carolina lost to Virginia in the
last game of the season in Charlotts
ville, Wednesday night. Virginia got
a safe lead in the first half with the
score 16 to 7, but in the second period
Carolina came back strong and scored
9 points to Virginia's 8. The score
was 24 to 16 but if Riich had thrown
goals from fouls with his accustomed
accuracy and made good four chances
that went astray, and had Smith not
missed two chances for baskets which
came to him when he was uncovered
but too tired to throw with certainty
Virginia would have certainly been
forced to exert herself more fiercely
to keep her lead.
Virginia had clearly the superior
team both in weight and knowledge
of the game, but what Carolina lacked
in basketball she made up in game
ness. Virginia seemed slightly over
confident at the beginning but manag
ed to get a lead of 9 points before the
half closed. '
- A refreshing incident occurred in
the second half when Ritch and Ber
tram, the two husky centers, became
enamoured of each other, and em
bracing tightly, in a manner that
Referee Cartmell , characterized as
boldinsr, swayed down halt the
length of the floor to slow waltz time.
: Under the shadow of the basket
Ritch's fondness changed to desire
and he took a nibble at the shoulder of
his fair partner as both of them fell to
the floor. Both men were put out of
the firame, but it turned out that
neither had hard feelings toward
Ritch scored four points for Carolina
from free tosses. All of Carolina's
field goals were scored by Smith.
The team showed none of the
looseness that had been so evident in
the other two games on the trip
Their defense againsts Virginia's
dribbling was leaky at times. In
the second half Tillett and Driver
football players of about the same
weight had a lively time of it. Be
tween halves two members of Trainer
Lannigan's boxing class fought three
exhibition rounds. Nat Cartmell- re-
fereed both the game and the boxing

part of our scheme of taxation. (Con
stitutionality granted) :
The Tar Heels are to uphold the
negative ... against , Virginia and. the
affirmative against Georgia.
The Old North State Universitv has
such 'a glorious record in debate that
defeat is simply undreamed of for a
Carolina debating team. Last year
the University calmly and gracefully
scooped each one of the three debates
of the j ear. This year a good begin
ning has been made for a like per
formance in the defeat of the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania by an unanimous
decision in Philadelphia. ,
It is expected that a good crowd of
those interested in this college activity
will be on hand Thursday night to

BASKETBALL SEASON REVIEWED
Starting With Uncertain Prospects Carolina Qnint Made
I : Good. . i
Basket ball made its start as an in
tercollegiate sport of Carolina when
the Virginia Christian College was
dlaped on January 27th, and defeated
by the score of 42 to 21. After this
first game Chabot, the Va., C. C's star
guard, said th'at Carolina had the
makings of a good team. And, despite
many misgivings, because this was our
first year in the game, this predictiofa
has been largely, fulfilled. The team
has not won every game on the sched
uleVirginia liked us twice, but com
pared with the glorious record of some
of our all-star teams in another sport
of the not too distant pastthe season
has been a howling success,
The team has been a good one. Th
menn it have fought like snarling
cats in every game. They took their
fight , and nerve with them into every
irame and they didn't leave their "Car
olina spirit" hanging with their N. C
sweaters on the side line fense. What
they did'nt , know about basket bal
they made up in scrap.
The Varsity team was composed o
Ritch(Captain) , Tillett, Long, Smith
and Haines. , This makes three fresh
man and two sophomores and means
that next year we will have a- team
that is a fighter and one that, in ad
dition, has had one year of experience
Captain Ritch was probably the hard'
est and most consistent player on the
But he had very little on his team
mates. Tillet and Smith played hard
in every game, while Hanes and Long
were on the job all the time. The
whole team fought. Virginia on its
Southern ' trip played Trinity and
Wake Forest before it tackled us. And
according to Cecil, Carolina had the
best team Virginia had met on its trip
The quint won seven games and
lost four. It beat the Virginia
Christian College, 42 to 21, Durham
Y. M. C. A. 60 to 18; Wake Forest 31
to 18; Davidson 27 to 25; Charlotte Y.
M. C. A. 42 to 28; Tennessee 40 to 21;
and Woodbury Forest. Wake Forest
beat us on its home floor 38 to 16.

Baseball Bugs are Given Some Real Ac-
The Varsity and scrub baseball
teams got together Friday afternoon
for the first-time. .They worked for
seven innings and the score was 3 to 1
Varsity. The weather was a bit too
cold for fast work and the contest was
not very lively. Lee pitched for , the
Varsity for the first four innings . and
then Sloan relieved him. The scrubs
were not hitting. much. "Red" Stew
art, who was on the mound for the
second string, drew a three bagger
which he turned into a run "on Lind
say's error. Pember got a single. This
was all the stick work the scrubs could
do against the Varsity - fielders. The
first squad was somewhat more suc
cessful with ' 'Red's" unofficial deliv
ery. Captain Hackney and Sloan and
Page got two-baggers each, ' and -Edwards,
McLean and Witherihgton
drew singles. - v 5 ' " - '
The Varsity infield got very little to
do. . Hasty made two pretty , put-puts
and Edwards made a good 'one from
third., Calmes made, two errors in the
last inning, but all the rest of ,the time
he was getting every thing, that, came
his way. . Lindsay got no hard chances',
Witherington had few opportunities
to show .his., pegging ability. He re
ceived Sloan .and Lee in a satisfactory
manner,;-. Page got a .goodone in left -field.
Hackney got no chance. Mc
Lean got one easy one and disposed of
it without trouble.
Hanes showed up well in center for
the scrubs. He got several hard
chances and handled them without
trouble. The outlook is good for the
second bunch. Armstrong, Whittaker,
Hanes, Young are four fast workers.
"Red" Stewart by pitching against
the Varsity ought to help Coach
Clancey materially in his "determina
tion to make his team heavy hitters
above everything else.
Roach Stewart umpired in. a satis
factory arid entertaining manner.
