COLLEGE 5 Carolina Was In Rare Form and Played a Pretty Game. ONSIDE KICK A FEATURE Murdaugh Made a Ninety-Five Yard Run For a Touchdown. In Augusta on November 4 Carolina walloped the Georgia Medical team in their second gridiron battle by the score of 19 to 5. Last season this same team was defeated on the local grounds by a small margin, and this year's game was a pleasant surprise to us all. The teams seemed quite evenly matched at the opening of the contest, though Georgia was much heavier in the line. After a short time Mur daugh got the ball on a fumble and made a spectacular run of 95 yards for a touchdown. This put new life into the Carolina men and Georgia was "easy meat" from them on. However, Georgia's back field never let up in their playing, and by con sistent gains also scored a touchdown. J. A. Brown made a perfect forward pass to W. W. Brown for -a 25-yard gain. The backs also made consider able gains around our ends. Carolina again scored a touchdown during the remainder of this half. In the second half Carolina phayed superb ball. The new style of play was used almost entirely and was bet ter executed than during any previous game. The team worked like an elec tric machine and put snap and ginger into every play. They had eyes open to Georgia's weak plays, as was seen when Izlar threw a Georgia man for a safety. Carolina tried a series of forward passes and onside kicks which worked beautifully. Georgia seemed power less against these dashing plays, which were the feature of the game. It was great. Carolina was in magnificent form and her playing far exceeded the expectations . of the most optimistic. One would have thought that they were veterans instead of inexperienced men. Capt. W. W. Brown showed up well, as did J. A. Brown, and Brinkley, also. Gehrken and Prince played a good game. . The entire Carolina team played so well that it 'is a difficult matter to pick any "stafs." The back field was "eon the'job" in every department of the game all the time. The ends were fast and got down. under punts better than ever before. Mobley and Car ter held their own well against Geor gia's heavf line. The little "Game cocks" showed the stuff they are made off and are to be congratulated on their work. Several of the students accompaniedl the team on their trip. They were (Continued on pae 2.) BINGHAM I, CAROLINA 6 Carolina Did Not Play Up to Her Usual Standard. GAME HARD FOUGHT AT TIMES Bingham's Forward Pass Was a Feature. Koon Starred For Bingham. In the gridiron battle between Bing ham and Carolina last Saturday, the wearers of the garnet and black were defeated by a score of io to 6. Ham mond made a beautiful kick off to Bingham, and from that moment the Bingham boys got right into the game, and our boys found it impossible to keep them from going down the field, by a series of line plays and end runs, for a touch-~ down, followed by a goal kick. The ball was then brought to the middle of the field and Hammond made an other pretty kick. The visitors again got after our boys and it was not long before they were on our 20-yard line, where they made an easy field goal. It was not until after Bingham had made this score of io-o that the Caro lina boys got into the game. And when they got started,. they fought like real "Gamecocks" and began to show the school boys that Carolina's 'Var sity could put up as good a fight as they could, with all their "ringers." From this time on our boys put up a steady game and in a short time, by a series of straight line bucks, they car ried the ball over, Belser making the touchdown. Hammond kicked goal. The ball was again carried to the mid dle of the field and Bingham kicked off to Carolina. "Billy" Perrin re ceived the ball and carried it some dis tance down the field. This was fol lowed up by pretty swift playing on both sides, but from- this time to the end of the half the 'Varsity seemed to have the best of it. The half ended without further score. In the last half neither side scored. In the first of this half our boys seemed to fight with the same spirit with which they were fighting at the close of the first half. They carried the ball into Bingham's territory right away, and it seemed as if they would make the winning score on the jump. But suddenly the visitors seemed to wake up to the situation, and held the (Continued on page 4.) The-Carolina IF Oct. 3-Carolina vs. Ridgewood,...

WAUCHOPE Gave the Young People a Rare Treat. Miss Hayne Rendered Some Very Appropriate Selections. Hallowe'en, when ghosts and witches hold full sway, was most de lightfully celebrated by Dr. and Mrs. Wauchope with a party given to the German Club and the young ladies of the college set. In all it was one of the tnost enjoyable occasions of the present semester, and "something do ing every minute," as the show men say. The guests, on agriving, would be hold the door swing open of its own accord, disclosing a gloomy cavern, where two terrifying beings stood ready to receive them. This ordeal over, they were motioned toward the stairway, but there was yet another ghostly figure to be passed before they reached the comparative safety of the parlors. These were dimly lighted, there being no illumination save can dles and jack-o'-lanterns, and ghostly figures, witches and goblins moved back and forth among the awe-struck company. Later the lights were turned on, and every one had a jolly time bobbing for apples, and so forth. When one wear ied of this, they might pass through devious, darksome passages- to the witches' cave, where, surrounded by the implements of her craft, sat a most realistic *itch. She, in a voice to make hair rise, would speak of the trembling inquirer's past, and draw aside, for a moment, the veil from the future. Though 'twas mostly love af fairs she dealt in that night. , When all had been informed that "The Fair One is Fake," or "Beware of a Dark Man," supper was served, and a most toothsome and seasonable repast it was. The dining room was lighted by grotesque pumpkin lanterns and candles thrust through potatoes. The guests being once more assem bled in the parlors, Miss Hayne proved herself a finished elocutionist, and was brought back again and again by I the enthusiastic encores of her de (Continued on page 3.)

MUCH INTEREST IS MANIFESTED President Davis Has Appointed Committees to Arrange Details. An effort is being made by the Ten nis Association of the University to have the intercollegiate tennis meet held in this city either the last of this month or the first of December. A letter was received from Mr. Workman, of Furman University, who is President of the State College Ten nis Association, asking the University of South Carolina if it would be con venient to hold the meet in this city some time soon. President Harry Davis, of the Caro lina Lawn Tennis Association, after the boys decided that the meet could be held here, wrote to Mr. Workman informing him that Carolina would gladly entertain the tennis players, and would do all necessary things to carry on the meet successfully. Through the efforts of Furman and a few other colleges of the State, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association was formed in the fall of 19o6, and the first meet was held the same year in the city of Greenville. The following col leges were represented: ' Furman, Carolina, Clinton, Newberry, Wofford and Erskine.' All expenses of sending players to the meet, and the expenses of the occasion were borne by the city of Greenville, and also handsome cups were offered by the Mountain City, which were won in singles and doubles by Erskine. The event was very suc cessful, and the visitors received ex cellent entertainment at the hands of the Furman boys and the people of Greenville. Last year the meet was held in the Piedmont city again, and there were seven colleges represented, including Clemson, who had not been represent ed the previous year. The Erskinians again went home with both of the cups, to hold them for another year. The players, as a wvhole, showed tip better than those of 1906, but the meet was somewhat lacking in interest on the part of the people of Greenville. It was due only to' the Furman students that the event came off with out any hitches, although the expenses of the players were not paid by the City of Greenville as previously. Before the teams left a meeting was called and the Association was put on ai better basis, with Workman, of Furman, as President. It was decided to hold the tournament in the spring of the year, on account of the bad weather in the fall. The meet to be held this year is to be pulled off so that 1908 will not be passed by without a meet of the col (Continued on pae 4.
