at a big disadvantage, playing with a
team whose tactics he was not familiar
with, but with a little more practice he
will be a mainstay for the 'Varsity of
'o8. Perrin, at right half, is a comer.
He hits the line hard and for good
gains. At left half was Cooper, and
with a little more coaching will add
strength to the team. IzIar and Dar
gan, as ends, played fast and snappy
ball. This is really the former's first
year in football, and his chances for
'Varsity are very good. Tackles Brown
and- Carter, two new men, showed up
well in Saturday's game. Parrott and
Crouch, guards, and Gonzales at cen
ter, played their usual game. Belser,
Jones, Graydon and Mnrdaugh played
in the last half.
Coach Benet will put the team
through hard and steady training un
C- til the season closes.
The next game will be played Sat

The scrubs are putting up a good
fight against the 'Varbity in the after
noon scrimmages. And Coach Benet
is well satisfied with their work. Jones,
Sheppard, Marion, McNair, Beverley,
Herbert and Desportes are showing up
fine and will give some of the 'Varsity
players a good race for their positions.
The other scrubs are: Sligh, Blake,
Cain, Gresham, Dowling, Hamer, Ma

All the students are deeply interested
in the outcome of the team and will
carry the following and other yells
sky high Saturday afterioon:
Well, our old friend McCarthy is
back in harness again, and he is going
to give the young athletes something
to do this year, from the way lie has
been talking. Mac arrived on the
campus Saturday morning and was
out on the field to see the football
game. Here lie shook hands with the
students and they gave him a hearty
welcome. The instructor visited many
places of interest in the athletic line,
and has been telling the boys all about
his experiences and good old times
spent during the vacation.
It was a great source of pleasure to
the golfers when "Mac" told them that
lie intended to lay the golf course out
so the buildings on the green would
not interfere with it. It was the belief
of many that the placing of the two
buildings on the green wvould put a
quietus on golf playing. But the phys
ical director is going to lay out the
course in a few days and lie says that
sport on Gibbes' Green will be carried
on as usual.
The old students well remember how
the visitors at the Colonia, people out
of town, and the college professors
and boys took an interest in golf.
Prizes were offered by the Colonia,
and the links were filled with players
every afternoon. Mr. McCarthy is
(loing a great thing to utilize the
gr6und, and also to keep the game
going at Carolina.
The Golf Club is composed of the
players from the Colonia, town and
college and is supported by the mci
bers. It is also not included in the
Athletic Association. There is no out
doors game to take the place of golf:
for it is played the whole year round,
and is not as stringent on the muscles
as football, baseball and tennis. The
game is especially good for ladies and
men. Mr. Mac has taught a lot of
ladies and men how to play, and last
year there were some good golfers
among the members of the club. The
interest in golf should be as great, if
not greater, this season than last. The
college boys have many games to pick
their choice from, and it is up to them
to take part in some of the sports going
on at the University this year. If you
can't make good in one game try the
round until you find one you can put
up a good fight in anyway.
With the coming of Mr. McCarthy
gymnasium work will start up.
Classes composed of Sophs. and Fresh.
will be organized and the instructor
will begin to train them twice a week
in out and in-door exercises. Mr.
Mac takes the exercise along with the
boys, which adds interest and pleasure
to the work. The exercise will be
carried along all lines, with the aim
of developing the men to a high point.
Classes in boxing, wrestling, cross
country running, swimming, etc., will
be organized. One disadvantage for
the boys who love to swim is that they
have to run down to the canal to take
a dip and then run back, and by' the
time they get back they are worse off
than when they started. Whereas, if
the boys would get together and work
for a swimming tank, it would be a
pleasure, and it would influence mlany
of the boys to be more sanitary.

"Ah, dearest," he sighed, "I love
you. You are the apple of my eye."
Her chestnut hair, her cherrY lips,
her orange-blossom cheeks only tended
to egg him on.
"My heart, darling, beets only for
you. Lettuce elope."
"No," she said, "that would squash
everything. We cantaloupe until we
have cabbaged some of papa's greens."
Then he realized that this girl was
sure enough a peach.
