THE GAMECOCKS SPIRIT.
If Carolina ever showed the game
cock spirit, she did yesterday in fight
ing against those mighty odds of 22
points made by Davidson in the first
half.' The tale of the two games, that
of Clemson against Davidson, and
Carolina against Davidson, is told in
the halves. Clemson was scored on in
the second half and Carolina in the
first. The Garnet and Black settled
down to a hard fight after the first
half, and the game.those boys did put
cj up was a caution.
c4 It is practically a sure thing that if
the same weather conditions had pre
vailed the day before, the story of the
Clemson-Davidson cdntest might have
CI been different. Davidson's style of
play is open, as was shown yesterday,
and they did not have the opportunity
of bringing into play the formations in
the game with Clemson. Davidson has
a fast squad, and her team is espe
cially balanced for the new style of
In yesterday's game on the Carolina
side, Holmes starred. He was good
on gaining ground, and went after his
opponents hard. It was Holmes' best
game for this year beyond any doubt.
Holmes is a good football player, and
he showed what he could do yesterday
in fighting against odds. Belser was -

He carried the ball like nothing could
ever stop him, and on tackles lie wa.
very strong. It might be well to ad
just here that some of Carolina's mer
tackled too high.

Dlargan played a good end, he irha

On the Davidson team, Kluttz coul
carry off honors with any of them. H
is a fast end, and his work in receivin
forward passes and in down the fiel
tackles and receiving of punts place
him way and above the average en
of today. The development of tli
open play calls for much work froi
the end, and Kluttz Is there lIn ever
department of the game.
Clark sa heavy 'line bucker, and h
gains yesterday were steady. Elliott
attracted very much attention by his
playing. He carried the ball especially
well from formation, and keeps his
head at all stages of the game. Moore's
work at tackle, and Dunn's on the oth
er side of the line, was good.
One thing the game will do for the
Carolina team-it will season the play
ers. The squad has shown the lack of
experience, and the game will help
them as nothing else can. The men
that played in the game will know
more about football by the playing of
this game than any other they have
had for the season, and the result is.
bound to be beneficial.
On the side line were a number of
foTmer Carolina stars; also many of
Davidson's od players. Ralph K.
Foster,. the star end- of the class of
1905, was there; Eugene Oii*r.Caro
lina's former captain and tackle; Ben
Wyman, 'o4; Dick Reed, who played
one of the tackles when Oliver was
captain of the Gamecocks; Buddy
Moore, of the 1905 team; Dr. C. A.
Foster, '99, a former Carolina captain;
Tom McGptcheon, '02; John and Sam
Wilds, two players on the 1903, 1904
and 1905 teams. Ladson Boyle, of
Sumter, a member of Cairolina's 'Var
sity in days gone by, and a number of
others were there.

Teams Very.Evenly Matched in First
Half. Tigers' Loss of Robbs and
White Practically Lost the Game.
Davidson won from Clemson on the
athletic field at the fair grounds last
Wednesday morning, in a game which,
on account of the rain and mud, was
made rather slow. It had rained all
during the night and day before, and
fit continued throughout the game,
thus ruining a game in .which it would
have been hard to say to wvhomi the

ilways the case in rainy-day football.
The forward pass was attempted once
during the first half by Davidson, and
this resulted in a failure. No score
was made by either side during the
first half, but throughout the entire
half, and especially the first part of
it, Clemson had a decided advantage,
and it seemed as if the Tigers were
going to either give the Davidsonians
a defeat or a very close fight.
In the first part of the second half
both teams played evenly until Robbs,
who seemed to be the backbone of the
Clemson team, got hurt. Shortly after
this White, who played end for Clem
son, was also put out. This double
misfortune for the Tigers seemed to
be the sole cause of their defeat, for it
was after that that Davidson made all
With the exception of the very fast
ends of the Davidson team, Clemson's
line was somewhat stronger, and it was
here that the Clemson quarterback
used poor judgment by not making
line bucks the principal play. Taking
everything into consideration, the two
teams would have been evenly matched
and it would have been a "toss-up" as
to who would have won the game if
Clemson hadn't lost two of her best

This is the first intercollegiate game
Carolina has ever played, and Furman
has played only two. Vassy, for Car
olina, and Poteat and Fender, for Fur

terday. The number of fouls called
in the game was due to the fact that
the game was played on a slippery
field and a number of falls were made
by members of both clubs.
The game of basketball is a very
fascinating one, and is rapidly forgink
to the front as a potent factor in
Southern athletics. It serves to break

sons, and it is played generally by both
football and baseball players to keep in
condition. Carolina students are -ex
hibiting a great interest in the game at
the University, and an effort is now
being made to arrange further games,
and there is a possibility of a Northern
trip being attempted.
The game is very popular in Vir
ginia, and Washington and Lee, Wil
liam and Mary and other colleges and
universities have strong fives. If Car
olina could' secure ganmes with these
quintets It would prove of inestimable
value to them in learning the 'game.
