5 for Wofford, making a total of:
Wofford, 21; Carolina, 13.
For Wofford Wannamaker at cen
ter was the star. He dropped the ball
in six times from the field. Raysor,
captain, also played well, but was
weak on foul throwing. For Carolina,
Warren and Vassey played good ball.
Bolt at guard distinguished himself by
getting two field goals. Both teams
were weak on foul throwing, but the
game as a whole was clean and fast.
The following is the line-up and

HALL OF SCIENCE
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE)
tended at a later date also to give a
CA separate building to the departments
of Mathematics and Physics.
The erection of the new Science
Hall will begin in a short time now
not later than the beginning of the
summer anyway. It will hardly be
ready for occupancy by the next ses
sion of the University, for the re
maining $20,000 for its completion
cannot be appropriated until the next
session of the Legislature.
The University's plans thus call for
four buildings on Gibbes green. One
of these is nearing completion; An
other will be begun in the near future,
and the remaining two at some later
time. It is intended also that along
Pendleton street behind the Colleges
of DeSaussure, Harper and Elliot new
dormitories be erected, thus leaving a
small campus between the old build
ings and the new. On Green street,
also, behind Rutledge and Legare, the
plan is to build other dormitories and
classrooms. New professors' resi
dences are called for also, the pres
ent ones on the campus are to be util
ized for other purposes. This, in brief,
is the plan of Architect Wilson for the
building up of the new University, and
it is to be hoped that they will ma
terialize in the course of time. The
erection of the new Science Building
will be one more step toward this.

The Euphradian Society met at the
usual hour last Saturday night, with
President Manning in the chair. Aft
er an unusually stormy session of the
joint assembly, the regular programme
was carried out. A committee was
appointed to look into the advisabili
ty of giving a society banquet some
time in the near future. Grave fears
are now being entertained as to wheth-.
er some dignified Euphradians may
break over their Lenten restrictions.

States should increase its navy."
In the absence of Mr. Callison, Mr.
M. L. Marion presided last Saturday
night. Mr. Marion acquitted himself
well amid the stormy joint session.
Considering the amount of work the
societies have to do and the import
ant contests that are soon coming off,
it seems to me that it would be well
to cut out these useless joint sessions.
Almost every Saturday night, more or
less time is taken up in joint sessions
that could be better spent in earnest
Much interest was shown in the
regular work of the evening. The
query for debate wvas, "Resolved, That
the public school system in South Car
olina is in need of radical reform."
On the affirmative were: Blake, Sulli
van and Warren. On the negative:
Vassey, T. K.; Rector, V. E., and Ki

The weather man seems to have had
it in for baseball last week. The class
games had to be postponed until Mon
day and Tues-day of this week. The
final game will be played on Thursday.
Carolina has a practice game with
the strong Mechanics' nine on Sat
urday the sixth, Saturday the thir
teenth and Wednesday the seven
teenth. Carolina is also scheduled to
meet the Columbia leaguers on Sat
urday the twentieth.
The golf links are literally flooded
with golfers every afternoon. The
natural bunkers which' were formed
by the earth from the evacuation for
the new building only make the game
more hazardous and exciting.
The basketball squad is hard at
work every afternoon, prepariig for
their trips next month.
A coach for next year's football

THE CALLISON FILIBUSTER.
Last Saturday night at 8:30 o'clock
there came a gentle rap at the door of
the Euphradian Society Hall. The
custos forum, a man known for his
whiteness, not used to such a rap as
this, shrank back with fear lest a
mighty host had issued forth to storm
the Euphradians. After much com
motion, the Euphradians prepared
themselves for the onset.
The door opened and a tall stately
gentleman, the president of the Clari
osophics, crossed the threshold, stopped
and seeing the prevailing conditions,
would have gladly retreated, but mus
tering tip courage, he strolled, a little
shaky in his knees, to the president's
chair. In rushed his multitude of co
workers, and the hall was well filled
with rumors of filibuster. Things
looked precarious at the b g'nning,
and many thought there was an all
night session in store and the mair is
sue would never get before the house.
The omniscient John Copeland
Sheppard was the leader of the prohi
bitionists, and lie began the filibuster
ing with the p)ersistence of a horned
bull. Massey, the "dispensarite,"
took a decided stand and made it hot
at times for his opponents. .In the
midst of the hot air, a motion was
made to adjourn. The question was
tabled, the previous question was
called for, a motion to reconsider was
ruled out of order, and the men called
for motions that the Roberts rules of
order book had never seen. Finally,
the aye and nay vote was called for,
and( President T. C. Callison was so
bumfuzzled that lie did not know
whether he was standing on his head
or feeft Two or three timese aid:A
"I can stand the fun as long as you
can.." Appeals from the rulings of the
chair were numerous. Especially was
an appeal from the ruling of the chair
in order wheni he refused the calling
of the ayes and nays.
In the midst of the angry howl for
the floor, the renowned Mellichamp
made an eloquent plea against the fili
busters, but by the majority he was
ruled out of order and forced to re
tire by a motion of B. J. White, from
the Rocky City of York. The custos
forum then began to pour forth his hot
air and the hall was so full of steam
from the mighty mouths of the fili
busterers that it would have been im
possible to jam another spoonful in
with a five-ton pile driver.
The real issue of the meeting final
ly came up and was settled in a man
ner that the "Dill Boy" or the man
from Bamberg City would not be able
to describe in six years.
The door was cracked and the steam
that escaped was so great that it
knocked Shakesbeer Hoey downstairs
as he was about to enter the hall.
"Magnus Bo" quieted things a lit
tle when the Edgefield lad known as
Johnnie secured the floor in a man
tier that is unknown, and began to
read a book of Dr. Johnson's. Even
Esop's Fables would have been in
order to be debated on in this hurricane
of the filibuster. After all were either
rolling on the floor or cracking their
sides with laughter, the matter of
electing a chief marshal for the S. I.
0. A. preliminary was in order. The
boy whose head, it will be remem
bered, was made a little sore by the
chemicals thrown by the fire wagon at
the DeSaussure fire, was nominated.
Mr. Allen informed the society that
"Red's" figure could not be fitted up
by the tailors of Columbia, owing to
the size and shape. The great fili
busterer of the day, Johnnie Copeland
Sheppard, had to say something; so
lie moved that the big fellow borrow
Epps' coat for the contest.
The big boly from the wilds of
Anderson received a large number of
votes, the number being o-n-e. He
was declared defeated unanimously.
The filibustering only drew to a
close when the door flew open from
the pressure of the hot air and the
crowd of visitors sallied forth. Pres
ident Callison took little time to reach
the door and feared that he might be
called back until. he reached the presi
dential chair of the Clariosophic U*
ciety and ordered the door to be sealed
and bolted to keep out all filibustering
