Overcoming a handicap of 20
pounds to the man, the Carolina foot
ball squad finished all football for
1921 by defeating the University of
Florida in Jacksonville Saturday, by
a 14 to 10 score.
The Florida contest is the first post
season game the University has play
ed in years, and will possibly become
a regular post-season affair in the
coming seasons. Over 7,000 people
saw the game in Jacksonville, and
the weather was entirely too warm
for good football.
Carolina won by showing superior
offense and a better coached and gen
eraled team. Florida scored early
in the game with a long kilk from

He declared the purpose and ideal

is the study of drama and art, and
to cultivate a taste for the aesthetic

to secure full membership in the fra

as in the social fraternities.

out of six played. Barden lost this
match to Powell, captain of the
The next match was with Virginia.
This was very hard fought,-and at
times the outcome was doubtful. The
singles were especially close. Cox
disposed of his man with ease, but
Johnson and Barden found more dif

only after a close fought match- that
they won.. Their, victories, however,
were dear and decisive.

matches, and -lost one of - the
doubles. In doubles the team has
been weakest throughout the season.

played here on Thursday, and the
team experienced , more difficulty in

Fayetteville won the eastern high
school championship, defeating New
Bern on Emerson field here Satur
day afternoon by the score of 7-0.
New Bern appeared to have the
stronger aggregation and outplayed
Fayetteville in most phases of the
game, but the well coached Fayette
ville eleven, through desperate fight
ing, was able to push across a touch
down while holding New Bern score
less. Underwood, McQueen, and Hall
for Fayetteville and Shipp and Simp
son for New Bern were the outstand
ing stars of the game, all five men
displaying more than usual high
school football ability. McSauley
and Dill were outstanding men on
the defense for New Bern. Both
teams played erratic ball at times,
and both were seriously handicapped
by the muddy field.
Fayetteville's Big Drive.
Near the close of the third quar
ter Hall of Fayetteville intercepted
a forward pass on New Bern's 40
yard line, carrying the ball to New
Bern's 30-yard line. In three succes
sive plays the Fayetteville team made
first downs, Hall carrying the ball.
Two line plunges ,the fast Fayette
ville backfield' smashing through with
apparent ease, and a long end run
spelled defeat for New Bern.
After this lone touchdown through
out the fourth quarter and practi
cally -during the entire game New
Bern was the most consistent ground
gainer and four times came within
the Fayetteville 15-yard line. In the
last quarter with Simpson and Shipp
doing the bulk of .the work, after r
Simpson had passed tb 'McSauley for
a 45-yard gain, New Bern carried the
ball within six inches of the goal
line. . There was some dispute as
to whether the ball was over for a
New Bern touchdown, but the referee
decided in Fayetteville's favor.
This last drive of New Bern's came
after a similar offensive in which New
Bern had carried, the ball within
Fayetteville's seven-yard line but had
failed to register a touchdown by line
In the first quarter- New Bern
kicked to Fayetteville's five-yard line
and McQueen ran the ball back 20
yards. Fayetteville failed to make
first down and Tripp punted to Fay

five yards over right tackle. Dill
gained two more yards through right
tackle, and a first down followed with
