The team from the Charleston Ath
letic Club defeated Carolina on Davis
Field on October 22 by the score of
15 to 4. The Athletics' team was
composed of former college "stars,"
and all the men were fully experi
enced. In addition to this, they out
weighed Carolina 13 pounds to the
man, and made many gains by brute
force. They played the "old-time"
game, running line bucks and tackle
out of tackle plays for the most part.
The Carolina team showed great im
provement in executing the forward
pass, but a great deal more practice is
needed. In the handling of punts
Carolina is still deficient, and the men
are not fast enough in getting down
A drizzling rain fell throughout the
game and was accountable for many
of the fumbles. The ball was wet and
slippery, and, consequently, not easily
handled. On two occasions Charles
ton lost considerably on account of
poor passing back of the ball for kicks.
The attendance was greatly cut down
by the unfavorable weather, but those
who braved' the elements were quite
enthusiastic, the sidelines continually

showed up in the limelight. McFad
den, a former Clemson "star," played
brilliantly throughout. H4e used good
headwork in the management of his
team, and himself made the most'spec
tacular runs of the game. Once, on a
quarterback run, he eluded almost the
entire Carolina team and went for 55
yards. Again, on a missed punt, lie
snatched up the ball and dashed 50
yards, beihg thrown only two yards
from the goal. He also kicked well,
and it was seldom that a punt or on
side kick did not fall in his hands.
Von Gemmingen, the big tackle, was
a tower of strength, both on offensive
and defensive play. He made several
good gains through the line. Boyd,
Johnson and Wyndham also played a
hard, aggressive game.
For Carolina, Herbert and Dargan,
at ends, played the best game, par
ticularly f-Ierbert, who was in his first
game. Both of them tackled hard and
smashed many of Charleston's strong
est plays. In executing the forward
pass, they were quick and aggressive,
netting some of the longest gains for
Carolina. Hammond played well in
the backfield, as did Belser, when he
got in the game in the second half.
Mobley never let up in his playing.
Carolina was decidedly "up against
it"-to use a slang expression-but
were game and gritty to the last down,
playing with true "Carolina spirit."
