In the Wake of the Game
_By GUS MALBBRT_
No victorious army of the Bulger*
returning from a slaughter of Mos?
lems wu ever more warmly welcomed
than were the warr en of the Uni?
versity of Virginia upon their return
from defeat at the itands of Vander?
bilt on Saturday. Jubilations seem to
be the order of the aay at Charlottes
vtlie and not without reason. Ths
sorry showing of the eleven In previ?
ous games, together With the glow'ng
reports of victory, which had come
from tbe camp of the Commodores had
led both coach and men to tbe belief
that Virginia would be swamped by
