'Varsity back for downs. Hammond
then made a long kick to the left of
the field and Bingham's man was
downed within io yards of his goal.
On a trick play a long run was made
around our end, and the ball was in
the hands of the visitors most of the
Throughout the game, Belser was
worked overtime and made good gains
almost every time he was called upon.
The punting and tackling of Ham
mond was of a high order. Mobley,
Perrin and Crouch all played a good,
steady game. And at one time the
last named player got onto a Bing
ham man and carried him down the
field with a hold that would have made
Burt Hudson put on his thinking cap.
For the visitors, Koon, the coach,
at full, and "Maggie" Awtry, at end,
played star ball. Whenever "Koonie"
would call on "Maggie" to receive a
forward pass, she would go after it
like any girl would go after a new hat
at a fire sale.
The two teams, on the whole, played
about an even game, and if the 'Var
sity eleven had played the game in
the first part of the first half that they
put up in the second half, there Is no
doubt but that they would have either
tied the game or put a defeat to the
"Tarheels." The visitors outweighed
our boys ten or fifteen pounds, and,
besides this, they had a number of old,
.o;perienced players with thep,, Tak
ing these facts into consideration, it~
will not be hard to understand why
our light and inexperienced but fast
and spirited team met defeat.
The following is a detailed account:
When Hammond kicked off to Kim
ball the latter brought the ball up 12
yards. On the next two plays, with
gains of only four yards, by Koon and
Kimball, McGee kicked, Perrin ad
vancing three yards. Belser, five
yards; Wynne, three yards, and Izlar
three yards, on line plays, gave Caro
lina distance on the- first series of plays.

next two plays the ball went over to
Bingham. Wright came around left
end for seven yards, but the next
play Koon failed to gain anything and
Bingham was forced to kick. Belser
advanced five yards on the punt.
Hammond then kicked to Wright.
Hlammond got on to some good
tackling in the next play by landing
Kimball behind the line for a loss of
two yards. Norton came up eight and
a half yards and Koon added two.
Along here Bingham was smashing at
Carolina's line and the ball was within
12 yards of the goal line. McGee car

two plays distance was netted by Bing

a kick was attempted and Izlar block
ed the ball, Norton gaining possession.
Kimball made four yards, but on the
next play a loss of one yard caused an
attempted kick, Awtry gaining posses
sion of the ball. Here was a long
discussion as to whether the man who
finally received the ball was onside.
The pigskin had not touched the
ground 'and it was Carolina's conten
tion that the ball should go over. The
officials gave the ball to Bingham on

line and two drop kicks were missed
by .Awfry in this half.
When McGee kicked off to Perrin
the latter brought the ball 27 yards in
a pretty run through the broken field.

THE STATE TENNIS TOURNAMENT
(Contipued from page x.)
leges. Then in the spring of 1909 the
tournament will be fixed to meet each
spring of the year.
There is no reason why Carolina
should not be able to have the State
Tennis meet, in Columbia with much
success. The city is centrally located,
and all the colleges would be able to
send players to represent them. The
tennis interest is high in the city, and
also at the UniVersity. There are
some good courts at the college, and
if these do not prove adequate more
will be built. Then the Ridgewood
Club owns, some fine courts which they
might be influenced to give over to the
University for the meet. Each insti
tution will bear the railroad expenses
of their tennis teams, but the Uni
versity of South Catolina will see to
the entertainment of the visitors and
the other expenses of the tournament.
A committee cohsisting of B. J.
White and S. B. Ri'ch have been ap
pointed to set the exact date of the
meet, which. will be done as soon as
President Workman is heard from.
No time will be spared by the Univer
sity Tennis Association to get things
in readiness for the meet, and players
and all the colleges of the State are
urged to send representatives to the
city for the event. Carolina will insure
the visitors the best of treatment and
hope to make the meet successful.
The tennis lovers have been playing
out on the courts on the green in the
afternoons, and are , developing into
good players. The University Lawn
Tennis Association has been a little
huzekimard ip.ettinv.more courts fixed
ip to supply the demands, but it is al
nost impossible to secure workmen to
ix the grounds in proper shape.
President Harry Davis, of the Ten
iis Association of Carolina, has been
trying to get the college to build up
the courts, and the tennis players hope
that the faculty will see fit to provide
:,ourts. The Association has not
asked the aid of the faculty until now,
and .there is no reason why they should
not lend their support to this form of
athletics as well as to other forms.
Some financial aid will have to be
asked of the students if the tourna
ment is held, as it will no doubt be.
There will be no way of charging ad
mission, but some plan will be adopt
ed. Some have suggested that tickets
of Soc. each for the entire series be
sold and the proceeds be used for
some kinds of entertainment for the
visitors, and all students be allowed to
attend. It is the aim of the Tennis
Association to treat the men that come
from the other colleges as best they
can, and not to come out at the head
of the game. The University stnidents
will. give the visitors a good time and
work for success of the meet.
It will be necessary to hold a pre
liminary to choose representatives for
the State meet. This 'will be done very
soon, and every tennis man will be
given a tryout for the place. As .with
every form of athletics, just so it is
with tennis, the best players are the
ones that Carolina wants to represent
her against the other institutions. It
is up to some of the other colleges be
sides Erskine 'to win the tournament,
and the players who are picked to play
for the University are going to try to
