Tuesday afternoon the brainy
Senior team and the fast Fresh
man bunch played one another to
a standstill in one of the classiest
football games of the season
Needless tolsay neitherside scored.
And for this good and sufficien t
reason they tied with a 0 to 0
While the eramewas not as
spirited as some games'that are
milled off here notably the
Fresh-Soph games 'every year-
yet there was enough spectacular
playing shown forth to make the
game interesting. Barker made
a hero of himself by, gaining 30
vards on a run in the second
"quarter. Spencer, for the fresh
men made good consistent gains
all the time. But the real feature
of the game was a tackle by "T.
Mo" Price. It was a sensation
in itself and baffles description
Suffice it to say. he got his man.
The Seniors came on the field

proudly over the field. Their
team advanced with defiance
gleaming in their-blood thirsty
eyes. They hurled themselves
time after time upon the Fresh
men's defence only to find it in
vulnerable at critical mements.
The Freshmen fought for the
honor of their beloved class
colors unknown with the tigerish
desperation of a lion at bay. On

The Sophs and Juniors clashed
Friday evening in a ragged, see

There were few features worthy
of mention. The lack of snap
and "pep" was probably due to
the hookworm haze which per
vaded the atmosphere. It was
too warm for good football. How
ever, a goodly number of mis
plays' a ndj fumbles added to the
enjoyment of the occasion.

DR. WHEELER AT Y. M. C A.
Speaks on the Lack of Religious Influences in
German, Universities. Sunday a Day of
Amusement and Pleasure
Dr. Wheeler spoke at the Y.
M. C. A. meeting last Tuesday
night on religious life in German
Universities. He said that there
was no religious life in them such
as we have. There are no chris
tian organizations or associations
and no system of tBiblestudy or
regular services of religious lec
tures. He said that' a large num
ber of the students are not chris
tians. The Germans, however.
are very careful to attend church
services. They have handsome
costly church buildings and strong
preachers. Except for the church
service the G ermans make Sunday
a day of amusement and pleasure.
It is their way and they do not
consider.it at all wrong.
On Wednesday morning at the
Chapel exercises Dr. Wheeler
spoke of the manners and customs
of the german students. He
characterized the Germans as
hard workinsr.v progressive, and
eagerly , desirous of an education

ARTICLE ON LEGAL TOPIC

Number of the Bench and Bar Review
on N. Vs. Exempt Property Laws
In a recent number of 7 he

cal devoted to legfal subiects, is
an article by a North Carolinian,
Alfred W. Haywood, Jr. Mr.
Haywood is an alumnus of the
University, having bela gradu

completed the law coirse here

sued his studies at -Columbia
University. He is at present in
the office of Davies, Auerbach,

prominent law firms in New York.
The contribution to the legal
magazine is entitled "New York's
Antiquated Exempt Property
Laws". The Empire State's ex
empt property laws date irom a
century ago and are atterly un
suited to presen conditions,
Lawyers who have studied this
subject have urged a revision of
the statutes, but somehow the
Legislature has never tackled the
problem. Itis probable that this
article, inj'a magazine of such
mgn standing,. may exert . con
siderable influence in ; bringing
about the; much-needed reform.
Neighborhood of Y.H. C. A.
An important branch of the Y,
M. C. A. work here is the Neigh'
borhood work. In the vicinity of
Chapel Hill there are eight Sun
day Schools in which a number
of students, sent out by the Y.
M. C. A., take an active part.
Some students act as superinten
dents and some as teachers. There
are abont twenty students at
present engaged in this work,
and the attendance of the schools
is over 300 scholars. I
Both the ruralcommunity and
the students are benefitted by
these Sunday schools. The peo
pleXliving in the countv are
brought in closer touch with the
University and the students take
pains to serve in the schools
earnestly and faithfully. The
students are likewise benefitted,
for careful study and teaching of
the Sunday School topics aid ma
terially in their own development.
Mr. Burrell H. Marsh arrived
in the city last night to spend
several days. He was at Chapel
Hill yesterday and saw the Tar
Heel boys defeat the University
of South Carolina boys by the
score of 21 to 0. He says he was
surprised at the strong showing
of the Carolina boys, and he has
strong hopes that they will be
able to win from Virginia on
Thanksgiving d a y. Winston-

of our labors. All the fall stu

MAKES FIFTH VICTIM
Snappy Team From the Pal
metto State Fails to Touch
the Varsity's Record
EDWARDS KICKS GOAL FROM 27 YARD LINE
The Team Shows Pep and Ginger
and Plenty of Clean Fighting
Spirit. Tackles "Well and Blocks
Almost to Perfection
Carolina won from , the Pal
metto State lads Saturday by the
score of 21 to 0, making three
touchdowns, kicking all three
goals, and then making a beauti
ful drop from the 27 yard line.
The touchdowns were made in
the second and third quarters by
Tillett, Wakeley, and Tillett
again. The drop was performed
in fine style by "Burr" Edwards
in the last quarter.
The game was a beauty from
North Carolina's way of looking
at it, and from any viewpoint was
a fine exhibition of open field
work. Our teem after a fumble
and the consequent loss of the
ball in the early part of the first
quarter, got together and put up
by far the best game that they
have played on the home grounds
this year. They ran the ball
well, tackled well, and bjocked al
most to perfection. They showed
pep and einger in the play all the
time and evidenced the proper,
clean, fighting spirit that all the
students admire and appreciate.
South Carolina was not in it; but
South Carolina lacks a heap of
being Washington and Lee, and
Virginia. In other words, Alex
ander has more worlds to conquer.
At first the game resolved itself
into a punting duel between Coffin
and Whitner, with odds abcut
even. Our men, however, brought
punts back better than did the
South Carolinians; Chambers, in
this department of the game,
doing phenomenal work. Tillett
also worked well with him.
Our whole team played well
together and individually. In
fact, most of the men on the team
seemed determined to star alone
and with the rest of the team too.
The team worked in such a way
as to make every man proud of it.
In the first quarter Carolina
received the ball and gained
steadily, at the end of the quarter
having it on the Palmetto's 16
yard line. On the seoond play of
the second quarter, however, she
lost it on an attempted forward
pass. South Carolina punted out.
Then North Carolina after trying
a couple of plays punted to South
Carolina's 10 yard line, where
Abernathy recovered the ball.
Rushes by Wakeley and Tillett
carried the ball across. Tillett
kicked goal. N. C. 6, S. C. 0.
South Carolina again kicked off
to the Tar Heels, who, by ex
changes of punts in which Coffin
bested Whitner, and in which
Chambers made remarkable runs
in returning the South Caro
linians's punts, soon advanced the
ball to South Carolina's 38 y?i.i
