Coach's First Call for

Form the Nucleus About "Which
the 1911 Team Will Be Built
When at the beginning of the
rm Coach Bocock and Captain
. inston issued their call for can
dates for the 1911 Carolina foot
.11 team about 55 men answered.
tuong the number were Aber-
.thy, Applewhite, Belk and Ven
le of last year's team; Deans
id Manning-, sweater men and
arsof two years ago; and a large
trt of last year's scrub team, in
uding- Wakeley, Ritch, Crutch-
;ld, Will Tillett, and Lenoir
.iambers, all five of whom made
ips with the team last year and
.tne near hustling some of the
gularsoutof their places. These
avers form a splendid nucleus
ith which to start work. Among
le new . material, which Coach
ocock will work in with the old
ten, Coffin, all-State prep school
: garter, Walton, Johnson, Erwin,
uarter, Adernathy and Erwin,
.ill back, stand out as giving
romise of great development.
here are no big "beefs" among
ther the old men or the new, al
lough the men who answered
le call are a husky looking bunch,
he strength of the team will
lis year consist in speed and
nickness, not in weight.
The past two weeks have been
jeut in gruelling preliminary
ractice, punting, falling on the
nil, tackling the dummy, pass
ig the ball.'' ' During the past
:w days different elevens have
Le.n picked and schooled in va-
ous plays. No scrimmage has
Lkcn place yet, but even now
'ie fight for places is hot and
erce although a week will pass
efore men are picked for the dif
ferent positions. This year, how-
ver, the men will be handled as
squad rather than as a team.
hree or four men will be held in
feserve for each position, and the
earn will be chosen from the
quad before each game.
It is too early yet for the coach
b make any definite statements
(oncerning the team's prospects
r make any claims The team
his year will consist not of pros
pects nor of South Atlantic stars.
Nevertheless Bocock's skill and
Winston's spirit will make for
Carolinaeleven men who will work
as one machine and quit them
selves worthy of the colors they
wear. Winston is full of nerve,
spirit, and enthusiasm, and is
laboring liard for the success of
the team. Bocock is well known
in Southern foot ball, where for
several years he has coached
strong teams to victory.

COLLEGE NIGHT A SUCCESS
New Men Initiated into the Ways of College
life.' Winston Arouses Enthu- i
siasm for the Team
The annual celebration of Col
lege Night was this year a great
success. The untiring efforts of
Secretary Hall and President
Lockhart to make the occasion
something more than an empty
hullabaloo met with a fine re
sponse on the part of the students.
An immense crowd of students
was present in Gerrard Hall. The
University song was sung with
vigor and the yells given with a
snap by the old men for the benefit
of the new. The speeches were in
the main good. Enthusiasm and
college spirit ran high.
F. B. Drane, Vice President of
the Y. M. C. A., presided over
the meeting. Sandy Graham
led the cheering.
After he had stated the purpose
of the meeting, Drane introduced
Bob Winston, captain of the 1911
football team, as the first speaker.
Winston spoke on athletics, and
his stirring talk aroused more en
thusiasm than anything else dur
ing the evening. As was natural
he confined himself almost ex
clusively to football, and especial
ly to the season about to open
He thanked the student body for
its loyalty to the team in the
pastatid asked that the dauntless!
Carolina loyalty continue. But
he asked for something more than
loyalty for the faith and confi
dence of the students in the team's
ability to win.

Winston spoke on the honor sys-

TENNIS ASSOCIATION MEETS
The Report of the President Shows the Asso
ciation to Be in Good Condition
A meeting of the Tennis Asso
ciation was held Thursday after
noon. The president made a
brief report in which he said that
there was about $100 in the bank
to the credit of the association,
and that he had twice written
last year's treasurer but had as
yet received no answer. Election
of officers followed. Speight
Huuter was elected president,and
Fields Euhss treasurer. Both
men are members of the Junior
class. An effort was made to re
duce the membership fee from
$1.50 to $1.00, but this, after con
siderable debate, failed. It was
decided to use the amount in the
treasury for the erection of four
new courts if the proper arrange
ments could be made with the

HOW THE FACULTY
SPENT THE SUMMER
'An Account (of the Many
Things Done by the
THREE PROFESSORS RETURN FROM EUROPE
Few Changes Made in the Faculty
During the Summer. Dr. "W. H.
Brown is Added to the Depart
ment of1 Medicine
The faculty iwill remain about
the same as last 'year, only a very
few new men being added as com
pared with the Sweeping changes
at the beginning of last session,
owing to the loss of so many old
professors. . 1
The most important acquisition
to the ranks of the faculty is Dr.
Wade Hampton Brown, who is to
be professor of pathology. Dr.
Brown took a B. S. from the Uni
versity of Nashville in 1899, at-?
tended the University of Chicago,'
took an M. D. from Johns Hop-
kins in 1907, was instructor in
the University of Virginia in 1907-j
08, instructor in the Uniuersity
of Wisconsin 1908-10, and assis-j
tant professor of pathology in the
last named university last session.
Mr. D.. Hug5-BacotJr.r- o
Charleston, S. C, will be instruct
or in history. Mr. Bacot took an
A. B. from Charleston University
in 1907, was assistant in English
there 1907-08, and took an A. M.
from Harvard in 1909. He is now
doing work for a Ph. D. from
Mr. John Wayne Lasley will be
instructor in mathematics. Mr.
Lasley took an A. B. from the
University of North Carolina in
1910 and an A. M. from the Uni
versity in 1911.
The professors have passed the
vacation in various ways. That
the faculty, speaking collectively,
has by no means been idle in the
summer months may be seen from
a partial account of how some of
the leading members passed the
time. Many have labored a good
part of the summer just as hard
as during the college session, pur
suing advanced studies in order
to make themselves still more fit
to guide the sons of the State
through the mazes of the higher
learning. No less than three have
just returned to resume their du
ties after a year's leave of absence
in Europe, while three others have
made flying trips to Europe dur
ing the summer. A university is,
after all, only so strong as its fac
ulty, and the account following
speaks for itself as to the State
university's place in the progres
sive march of modern education.
President Francis P. Venable
spent the summer in Chapel Hill
working laboriously to enable the
university to make the greatest
possible expansion with the means
at its disposal.
Dr. Archibald Henderson has
just returned from a year's leave
of absence in Europe, where he
was when his life of Bernard
Shaw was published, which is,
perhaps, the most discussed book
of the day. He has been making

It was a serious body of Jun
iors that convened in chapel last

117TH YEAR OF THE

Increased Enrollment Gives
Bright Outlook for
760 STUDENTS HAVE REGISTERED TO DATE
Formal Opening Takes Tlaco in Me
morial Hall. ' Preident Venable
Explains the Internal Order of
Things at the University; I
; Thursday morning, September
14th, began another year in the
history of the' od: University
Seniors and frcshnien,juniors and
sophomores and professional stu
dentsall in an indiscriminate
confusion arid bustle hurried
about the campus attempting to
meet their classes. At 9:25, the
usual1 hour, chapel service was
held. Once more students' filed
into Gerrard Hall, sang a': song,
listened to a short prayer, arid a
few earnest words from the pres
ident and the year was started
anew. - '
The formal openingof the Uni
versity took place, however, as is
customary, in Memorial Hall at
12:30. Only academic students
are . required to go to cljapelt but .
every sludenTis expected to be at
Memorial Hall for the opening.
Nearly 800 students were present.
The sea of faces looked almost
like a commencement crowd.
Only one address was made at
the opening, that by , President
Venable.,. The purpose of such
formal opening was, Dr.' Venable
said, to give the President oppor
tunity to explain certain things,
about the University. The Pres
ident did not cuter into the details!
of the regulations, but his address
touched many things that cornc:
close to student life. He spoke,
of the increase in the number of
students, and said it was due
largely to the enthusiastic labor
of students. Fqr the continuace
of this good work the If any loy.
al co-operation, of ibe students is
necessary. ' The President spoke
of the individual, responsibility
that rested upon each student, '
and he urged the careful attend
ance by each student of the daily
duties. He spoke of the Univer
sity and begged most earnestly
that among the new students a
great love for the University
might grow up that they might
watch well her interests.
Dr. Venable further spoke, 'of
the general interna) order here
and of the rules governing con
duct. He said that the Universi
ty published no decalogue of sins
wherein the crimes of student
might be tabulated. The simple
rules: "You are expected to be a
gentleman in the high sense of
the word and to obey ., the laws
of the State" were all that gov
erned in this institution. He unr-
ed the new students to get into
tne lite of the University.' " To
those interested in spiritual
things he referred the Y, M.Q. A.

who debated, dramatic club to'
