The Freshmen displayed their great
football ability last Tuesday afternoon
by defeating the Sophomores io to o
on Davis field.
The Sophomores got the ball on
the kick-off, but soon the first year
men received the pigskin. The backs
worked like demons and the ball was
carried over for a touchdown after
eleven minutes' play. The ball was
kicked out to the Freshmen on the
ten-yard line for a fair catch which
was missed. Score, 5 to 0. With
nine more minutes' play the Fresh
eleven kept nearing their opponents'
goal. They tried a drop kick, but
failed. Before this half was up the
backs forced the ball over for a touch
down. The ball did not pass between
the posts in the kick. This made the
score 10 to o. In this entire half the
ball was kept in the.Sophomores' ter
ritory, and the gains of the first year
men were long and steady. The for
ward pass was beautifully executed in
this half. On the second half the
Sophomores spruced up and showed up
in better form. At no time was the
goal of the Freshmen in any danger.
The ball was kept in the middle of
the field most of the time, but even in
this half the Freshmen had a little
the best of it. The forward pass was
also pulled off in this half.
McMillan and Simpkins played
great ball for the Fresh ; Simpkins'
fast work caused him to make many
long gains. Hc was kept busy all the
game through. Metz and Sharpton
also played good ball.
For the Sophomores, Bradley,
Wright and Monckton showed tip in

' Oeat interest has been displayed in
th'e class football grames *at the Uni..
versity. Some valuable material has
shown up in the games, all of which
will be a valuable aid to the Varsity of
1909. Some of the men who have
come out in order to fight for their re
spective classes, and who (lid not
think that there was any gridiron abil
ity in them, have been enlightened on
the subject. Many of them regret
that they did not try out for one of
the teams during the season.

In the past two years the colleges
have been brought closer and closer
together. The old feeling has been
laid aside and the two student bodies
are now on the best terms. The stu
dents of the two institutions met last
Fair week in the University chapel
and the connections between the two
colleges are now firmly fixed for the
The joint meeting of the students in
Columbia was one of much pleasure
to the boys of the two colleges. Clem
son and Carolina are now united and
will meet hereafter in friendly rivalry
on the athletic field.
Clemson has the advantage of the
University in having such a large stu
dent body to pick their team from.
The Tigers will not be lacking in foot
ball material for a long time, if they
get set on their feet square again. The
influx of new students will always be
sufficient to keep the team going. This
year was a backslide for Clemson. The
team was composed of new material,
with little experience. But the same
team with another year's training and
with the aid of new material will be a
The student body of the University
is small compared with that of Clem
son. The debarring of football at the
University made it necessary for the
college to start out this year with raw
material to make a team of warriors.
The eleven played good ball, taking
into consideration the teams that were
played, and the situation when the
season opened up. Next year's team
will be a good one. Most of the pres
ent team will return and other good
material will be coming in. The Uni
versity boys are glad to know that the
game will be played.

The Sea-Men Club
Last week a new organization was
put on foot at the University, and
points to be one of the most success
ful and livest ever launched at the in
The organization is somewhat lim
ited in its -membership, for the re
quirement. to become a member re
quires a 'special test. Only those who
made the initial "C" arc eligible to
join. Either a football or baseball "C"
is sufficient. The stigma of the club
is the highest stand for athletics at the
University. Every year the players of
football and baseball, if they have
shown up in the proper form, are
awarded the "C" by the advisory
board, with the recommendation of the
coach. Anyone who has the ability to
distinguish himself by making the
standard in athletics of the college,
should deserve the honor of belonging
to a club of which no one else is eligi
ble unless they prove it to the public.
The organization is an organization
not composed of men who pretend to
be what they are not, but of those who
stand for what they are, and who
have displayed it.
The Club's intentions are:
1st. To bring the athletes of the
College in closer contact. This will
be done by iVeeting together and dis
cussing the athletic situation at the
institution, and also in general.
2nd. To influence better athletics
at the college by getting .those who
participate to any extent in the games
to come out and try for the teams.
The club itself will make the players
work harder for positions on the
teams, for the "C" puts them off in an
organization which only one condition
can make them a member.
3rd. To help athletics after they
leave the institution by influencing
other men to come to the institution.
This in the end means much to any
college. Nothing so advertises a col
lege than athletics.
The organization is known as tile
Sea-men Club and will be permanent.
It will never be lacking in members of
the kind that are desired as long as
the college exists. Every year adds
new material to its ranks. The Club
will have a special page devoted to its
cause in the Annual. The members

If you have any wisdom,
If you have any wvit,
Right down you must sit
And write a little bit
For the young game chick.
Just sign your nlame "Dick"
And the Sophs won't kick
If you don't wvrite as good
As a dignified Senior could.
Just adroitly use your minds
And come uip with your lines.
Then the cock will crow,
For its pages will o'erflow
With wisdom, wit and lore.

The most interesting thing about
the Junior-Senior game was the part
played by the sponsors of the third
After much deliberation on the mat
ter, the class decided on Misses Finley
and Spiegner. The class did well to
select two such beautiful young la
(lies, and they carried out the sponsor's
job to perfection. The sponsors, with
the 1910 colors flying high, took the
left side of the field. The cheers of
the ladies were an inspiration to the
whole team and especially to the backs
when they made a line dash and heard
the melodious voices of the Misses
Finley and Spiegner. Withut exag
geration it would be safe to say
that the sponsors played a very impor
tant part in the Juniors' victory. It
would be well for all the classes to se
lect sponsors of the Spiegner-Finley
Mr. R. M. Cooper is now putting
on foot a minstrel, the funds of which
wvill be for the Athletic Association.
The big college performance will
come off before the holidays, and is
going to be up-to-date. There is
plenty of minstrel talent on the cam
pus, and a good minstrel can be got
ten up if the boys will unite on the
cause. If you can't perform a stunt,
induce others to do so and help a good
movement along. Make it your busi
ness to see Mr. Cooper. He will give
you something to do.
Two years ago a minstrel was got
ten up and came off with ' big success
in the chapel. The proceeds of this
minstrel also went for a good cause.
The football season has just passed
and baseball will soon approach. The
University wants to have a good ball
team and the boys should get together
and start up the minstrel.
The University advisory board at a
meeting last week awarded "C's" to
the following men: Belser, fullback;
Crouch, guard; Wynne, tackle; Carter,
tackle; Perrin, right halfback; Dar
gan, end; Hammond, quarter; Mob
ley, center; Cooper, manager.
The "C's" represent the height of
athletic achievement at the University
and it is a big feather in any man's
hat to be honored with one. They are
awarded by the board on recommen
dation from the coach. The full
eleven were not given this year.
Trhere were several players wvho played
in the required number of gambs,
but their ability did not warrant the
coach to recommend them.
