Again we have failed to get the ap
propriation for our Secretary. It is
hard to make the General Assembly see
our need in this particular instance.
The other appropriations have been
most gratifying,. but they have left
us to fight unaided the forces of evil;
they have provided for our sorest phy
sical needs, but have taken no thought
for our spiritual life. It is up to us
to help ourselves, now that we know
that for at least one more year we
shall have to (o without the Secretary.
But we shall get him in the end if we
persevere. Perhaps we have not done
quite our best anyway. Let us at least
remember this, that even if we had a
Secretary and did no work ourselves,
our Y. M. C. A. work would yet fail
in spite of all lie could do.
Bible Study Class.
The most important feature of our
work is the Bible Study Classes. There
are three of these. Prof. Bradley has
charge of the class studying the
"Teachings of Christ and I-is Apos
ties," and Prof. Gee of the class in the
"Life of Christ." The third class in
"Old Testament Characters" is led by
various ones of its members. See NI.
M. Rector if you wish to join this
class. This Bible Study work had to
be suspended during the weeks of our
:3 mid-year examinations, but now that
c- these are over all old members of these
classes are urged to return to the
work, and it is hoped that many new
men may join them. These classes
meet every Sunday morning at io
o'clock in DeSaussure College.
Last Sabbath and Next.
Dr. Twitchell gave us last Sunday
afternoon the third lecture of the se
ries on "Science and Religion." His
subject this time was "Tle Story of
the Creation as Told by the Bible and
by Science." It was most thoughtful.
Not a mian can afford to miss one of
these lectures. They come the third
Sunday in each month.
Rev. A. N. Brunson, of Main Street
Methodist Church, will address us
next Sunday at 3:15 P. M.
All members who haye not paid
their dues are urged to do so at once,
as there are some debts due now.

CAROLINA'S BASEBALL PROS

rell Jones pitchel good ball for Caro
lina in 19o7. He had great speed then
and has since developed all around.
He is a good hitter. Desportes tossed
for the Davidson scrubs in 1907. He
has good control and knows the gamie.
Harper has excellent control. He
pitched two very close games for
Seneca against Clemson last year.
Herbert, Izar, Simpson and Sim
kins are trying out for sack number
one. Herbert played for Bingham
-High School in 'o6 and 'o7. He
handles his mit well and is a' hard
worker. Izlar has held down first base
for Orangeburg. He is a very heavy
hitter. Simpson, although he never
played first base before, is an old base
ball man. Simkins has a good reputa
tion in Edgefield, his home, as a fast
For the second sack, there are Gib
son and Trippett. Gibson played scrub
ball last year. He is a hard worker
and a good base runner. His hitting
is somewhat weak. Trippett held down
second base last year. He is a pretty
fielder and led the team last season,
making only one error the whole sea
son. He needs practice in hitting.
McMillan and Carroll are out for
shortstop. McMillan knows the game
and handles himself well. His throw
ing to first is superb. He is one of the
best amateurs in middle South Caro
lina. Carroll is a very fast man. He
played third base for Wofford in
1906. lie thoroughly understands the
For the third sack, there are Perrin
and Gresham. Perrin led the team in
batting last year and is expected to
keep up his reputation this season.
Gresham hails from the up-country
and has an enviable record as an all
round baseball man. He is an excel
lent catcher and infielder. He knows
the game from A to Z.
Among the would-be fielders are
Hamblin, of Furman, who has a fine
wing; Klugh, who played good class
ball, and Rembert, Carolina's old faith
ful for the last two years. Rembert
is a good hitter, but he might improve
his base running. A few of the other
men out for the field are: Hughes,
Bradley,- Metz, Waring, Lipscomb,
Hiers, and Bruce.

ever possible, the men who have the
cause of the South most at heart."
Dr. Eliot left Cambridge on the
eighth of Februiary, and returns April
third, visiting in the meantime every
Southern State from Kentucky and
Tennessee to Virginia. He conmes to
Columbia from .Charleston on the
eighteenth and leaves the next morn
ing for Spartanburg and Asheville,
visiting no other places in this State.
It is needless to say that the Hall of
the House will be packed by students
and the public generally to hear him.
In aiddition to the presence of the
distinguished educator, our Dr. S. C.
Mitchell now delivering a series of
lectures at Brown University, will be
with us for a few days, and President
David R4 Coker, of Hatsville, has
issued a call for a meeting of the
alumni of the University at the same
time. The faculties of all the other
institutions of higher learning in the
State have also been invited to meet
with us-on the 19th of March, in order
to promote and strengthen the friendly
relations between Carolina and her sis
ter colleges. President Coker urges
the attendance of each and every
alumnus in order to meet Dr. Mitchell
and to learn of the plans now maturing
for the enlargement of the University
in the future.
Dr. Eliot will thus address hot only
the students of the University and
their friends, but, it is hoped, a large
number of our alumni and a gathering
of the leading educators of the State.
It is for such meetings as this that Dr.
Eliot's trip is made, and the University
is co-operating with him in his endea
vor to meet the leaders in educational
lines in this State.
There are several Harvard students
in the city, among them Dr. George A.
Walichope of our faculty, who are
looking forward with much pleasure
to the visit of Dr. Eliot, and doubtless
his friends and admirers will be much
more numerous after the 19th of next
