More than any other college or univer

Chilly, crispy, weather,
Autumn's here ag'in;
Circus is a comin',
Hear the band begin I
In a different wvay,
Watchin' for the big parade,
Jolly circus day I
Boys and girls are happy,
Horses rear and prance,
E'en the old time fellers
Are young enough to dance I
See the wagons comin',
Hear the awful roar;
Leo, mighty "king of beasts,"
Glaring thru the door I

after cheer for their team.
Denny kicked off at the opening of
the game toward Carolina's east goal,
and Holmes received the ball, making
a 12-yayd advance. Herbert was
called in to take the ball and made it
another 7-yard gain through the line.
Here Carolina attempted a forward
pass, but the ball was illegally sent
over the centre -of the line of scrim
mage, and, as provided in the rules,
there was a 15-yard penalty. Holmes
was then forced to :ick and the ball
was Davidson's on the 40-yard line.
Clark made 10 yards on a play
through the line, and Dunn added 5
yards on a cross tackle play. Denny
advanced 5 yards around left end.

monds made a good tackle of Elliott
behind the line, the Davidson quarter
losing 3 yards on the play. The ball
was now on the 15-yard line within
easy striking distance of Carolina's
goal. There was a breath of suspense
on the part of the spectators when the
forward pass was attempted by David
son, but Mac Holmes fell on the ball
and it was Carolina's ball on the 5-yard
line. The next play was most unfor
tunate for Carolina. In attempting to
punt out, Davidson's tackle blocked the
ball, and Edgerton, the star centre of
the Red and Black, was on the pigskin
like a streak of lightning. The ball
was behind the line when Edgerton fell'
on it, so a touchdowvn was netted for
Davidson. Elliott kicked goal. The
touchdown was made after 4 minutes
and 1o seconds of play. Score: David
son, 6; Carolina, o.

being qelected. This reminded one of
baseball when there are always a few
extra balls thrown out into the dia
But when the game started up again

up tlle ield for io yards. On a fake
punt Denny advanced 15 yards around
right end. But the ball was brought
back and Davidson was penalized 15

AND YET ANOTHER.
Holmes kicked out to Elliott, who
brought the ball back 10 yards. Denny
kicked and Kluttz gained possession
of the ball. This brought the ball to
the middle of the field and shows the
advantage of the punt game under the
chances that always occur in football
of the other team losing possession of
the ball, especially if the Ma~n doing
the punting has such f-einds of the
Kluttz class. Elliot clipped off a 5
yard gain for 'Davidson*: Denny
