Too Early Yet to . Make Predictioni
' aa to Who Will be in the First
Line Up in Saturday's Game
Against Wake Forest
With the opening game oi tht
season but a few days off it n
still a mere conjecture as to whe
will represent Carolina in Un
contest, here Saturday against
Wake Forest. Of course, to thost
who have stood on the side line
each afternoon a number of old
favorites and promising candi
dates loom above the mass at
having already cinched their po
sitions, but for an onlooker t
pick out the entire eleven fron
the squad is an impossible propo
sition. ' Bocock is giving ever
number of the squad a chance,
and he is working every one witl
a grueling consistency thatstil
leaves the matter of who wil
make the team were guess work.
The first serimmage of the sea
son took place Wednesday. Bo
cock chose the following mer
from the squad for the first day
Afflewhite 1. e. Blalock

leaked out and as a result mosi
of the college was on the side
lines to watch the fun. And the
college got what it went after, for
although the first eleven went
the other one better in the mat
ter of weight and experience,
there was nothing stirring when
it came to a fight. Both teams had
speed and spirit and the scrap
they put up was lovely ; to see.
The coach seemed satisfied with
the work of the squad, though
not by any means overjoyed.

The annual push ball contest
at Washington and Lee was pull
ed off on Wilson field a few days
ago. The contest was between
thirty sophomores, captained by
. . R. K. Williams of Morristown,
Tenn., and thirty-five freshmen,
captained by Noah Moses of Lex
ington, Va. The result of two
hard contested rounds, one fifteen
and the other of eight minutes,
on a sultry afternoon, was a tie.
And the sophomores are roosting
lower. Thomas McP. Glascow
was the referee.
Cleveland county men held' a
meeting Tuesday night and elect
ed the following officers for the
year: Horace Sisk, president; F.
Elliott, vice-president; M. S.
Beam, secretary and treasurer.

A committee to select a new
play for the coming fall has con
sidered various possibilities. The
problem is to secure a play suita
ble for practical production on
the limited stage of Gerrard Hall
which will, at the same time, be
of a high enough standard to
please a university audience. Ib
sen and Shakespeare were consid
ered, and a rollicking three-act
farce, "The Private Secretary,"
was suggested. The last was
thrown out rather than bother
with a royalty to the author,
though the club might possibly,
as other clubs have done, some
times persuade an author to waive
this right. Finally, the choice
was about made of Schiller's
"Nephew and Uncle," a spicy
comedy. And of course, translat
ed from the German. A copy of
this play has been secured, and is
being read by the members of the
committee. If it pleases them, it
will be formally declared the play
to be presented.
Last year the Club went through
a little unpleasantness, started by
a roast in the Tar Heel. But
even keen professional managers,
with years of experience, some
times run against this rock of an
adverse critic, and the Tar Heel
criticism merely attested the ex
traordinarily high standard set
for our college dramatics here.
Such a thing, however, rarely oc
curs two successive years,and the
very fact that it happened last
year augurs well for the next

to be presided over by the Sopho

vision that they will not give
their class yell after the meeting
or break any other ruies of cam

will be unmolested.
, This action was taken by the
Sophomores to get the freshmen
together on their .. numerous can

been several meetings of frag

have two or three presidents. In
addition to this there are several
tickets being circulated for sign

ALUMNI TO CELEBRATE
Professor Williams to Speak in Durham on
University Day, October7
The alumni of the university
are preparing for their celebra
tion here October 12, when Pro
fessor Horace Williams, of that
institution, is to come over and
deliver the address.
The plan of entertainment has
not been entirely made out but is
in the hands of Judge R. H.
Sykes, a member of the class of
1899. There are more than
seyenty-five university men in
Durham and every twelfth of
October is made an occasion of
great joy. The oldest of the
alumni are Major W. A. Guthrie
and General Julian S. Carr and
there always take part in the
The association was addressed
last year by Dr. Edwin Miras,
professor of English and at that
time beginning his work as a
professor at the institution after
hazing spent many in Trinity.
His speech reflected the university
spirit in every line. It was an
utterance that delighted his hear
ers. "Horace," as they call him at
Chapel Hill, likes Durham and it
is a place that just suits his
I psychological iind. He is some
thing of an industrialist as well
is a spiritualist, winning the
lame of "Blaron of Glenburnic"
twenty years ago. He is the
iulliest sort of a fellew and will
nake the old boys that he used
to give a 5 or 6 on his philosophy
happy to hear him.
For the banquet $2 plates will
be set and every alumnus is ex
pected to meet the demands. Be
tween now and that date, young
alumni will call upon the professor
and will make final arrangements
for the feast and give the city the
best university celebration that
it has ever had.
For a long time the Durham
University alumni have had it in
mind to do something for the
institution each year but never
have agreed upon their plans.
The late Dr. W. A. Graham was
working upon a plan to help it.
some of the old boys here having
won a reasonable amount of suc

will be suggested at this meeting.

Owing to the number of presi

tempted to get the best shows of
fered by the Alkahest Lyceum
System. The first number, the
Edwin R. Weeks Company, has
already appeared and has made
good. The account given below
of the remaining attractions will
show that those which are to
come will be as entertaining as
that which has already appeared.
The next number in the course
is The Beulah Buck Quartet.
This quartet is said to stand on
an equality with the leading fe
male companies in America.
Each member is a capable soloist
and their ensemble work enables
them to give a delightfully varied
program. In addition, Mrs. Buck's
readings captivate and charm any
