In the Wake of the Game
By GUS MALBERT
Just tea days from n;w the I'niy.r
?ity of Virginia will have an oppor?
tunity to square matters with the stu?
dent liody. The defeat at the hands
of V. M. I., the poor showing made
by the football team In several of the
earlier games, even the loss to Vander
bilt?all will be forgt'tten and forgiven
if Georgetown is conquered. Inci?
dentally. In this game will vome the
tinal test of the efficacy of alumni
Recent injuries to several players,
notably Petril and Hegart>. and tho
final disqualification of Rhelnerhlld
by the faculty at Georgetown will put
Coach Benis to some trouble without
question in order to put forth his best
toot In the Virginia game. Every
true sportsman will regret the injury
to Captain llegarty. He was one of
the Earnest men on the Blue and Gray
eleven, and plays one. of the best
tackles seen In the South. What sliifis
will be made have not been definitely
determined upon. At any rate, the
Charlottesville contingent has every
reason for renewed hope. .
There can be no denying the fact
that the Orange and Blue has shown
marked improvement over early sea?
son form. Gradually the men appear
to be hitting their stride. No game
has been scheduled for Saturday, and
none will be played, which may really
prove an advantage, for several of the
stars, including Captain Todd. Red BS
and Maiden, are still sore, from the
Vanderbilt game, and they will have
a complete rest.
Secret pr-jet'ee has been the rule at |
Broad Street Bark, where the Spiders
are being worked out by Dunlop In i
preparation for the game with Wil?
liam and Mary Saturday. Naturally. '
the Spiders believe they will win, and '
just as naturally they should win. The ;
WilHamsburg m hool has done nothing '
very impressive on the gridiron this !
reason, not even when ccmparei to !
Richmond College. A goodly crowd

The Cad?? a publication of tbe Vir
9*9 L mUmm S?r-r-T . . R??? >?i v.
ginia Military Institute, in a very
sportsmanlike editorial .some davs I
since, struck the keynote of the feel- I
ing throughout tlie state relative to
athletics at Virginia. The cadets did
Ml gloat over their victory, but. while
proud of the aehievemerit, depiored the
conditions which made such an
achievement possible, not that they did
not appreciate the honor which the
team won. They felt that Virginia ,
should be pre-eminent in athleti s. as
?he is 'n other departments of the uni- I
seraity, und that instead of allowing'
jealousies, pol'tlcs and at tlm< ? fra?
ternity favoritism to interfere with
the nest Interest of the team*, every
man Fhoiild work shoulder to shoulder
to get out the best possible eleven
and not the best liked eleven.
Tt now develops that Floger Rreslia
lum. deposed leader of the St. l.ouis
Nationals, has a civil contract which
stipulates that he must be paid wheth?
er fired or not. whether he plays or
merely watches the game from the
irrandstand, and that upon this con?
tract he will base a suit for damages.
With Breshahan and Fogel both seek?

over, and we may now justiy turn our
attention to the "real things of l'fe?

kindred subects of interest.

Tarheels and Palmetto Elevens
Being Groomed for Anticipated
Chapel HUI. N. C, November (.?The
Carolina football squad is bard at
work again in preparation for the
South Carolina game here Saturday.
The game last Saturday with George?
town revealed much to the coaches,
and they are working to remedy the
defects made apparent In that contest.
While Carolina put up a splendid de?
fensive game, there are still several
rough spots to be smoothed over.
Home wood, a substitute, who did such
brilliant work at right end in the
Georgetown game, will start the game
at that position next Saturday. He
now has an excellent chance to make
his place at right end permanent. Ex?
cept for Homewood. the line-up will
remain unchanged. ,
"Big*' Abernathy, the old reliable
tackle, has not been In the best of
condition up to a few days ago owing
to a boll on bis leg. However, he is
rounding into form again, and should
do his best playing In the remaining
gamen His strength Is always a fac?
tor In the line.
Head Coach Cartmell expresses him?
self as being well satisfied with the
general physical condition of the team
at present. None of the team Is suf?
fering from any serious effects of the
Georgeto n game.
The coming game with South Caro?
lina is expected to be more hotly eon
tested than those In the past. Hither?
to the Tarheels have not had any trouble
in taking the scalps of the Palsietlo
boys. The score last year was 2J-S.
South Carolina has displayed unusual
strength so far this season, and will
come to Chapel Hill with a determina?
tion to wipe out old scores.
The "dope" puts the two teams on a
fairly equal footing. Consequently,
a real fight is to be espected when
they clash. This will be the first game
on the local gridiron since the Btngham
game of three weeks ago. It will
likewise be the only remaining game
at home for this season.

this afternoon at 4.30 o'clock, and is
scheduled to meet to-night at 8 o'clock
tu hear argument on the pending light j
and power franchise.
Members of the committee present
were of opinion that there is little or
nothing that tho committee can do In !
regard to the delays on the bridge. The ;
contract, it was stated, makes the Oty
Engineer the sole arbitrator, and the
work must at all times proceed to his I
satisfaction. it is known, however,
that the work is not proceeding to the [
satisfaction of Mr. Boiling, and that i
he has recently held several confer?
ences with the contractor on the sub?
ject, and may have a report to make
to the committee this afternoon. It
is understood that the Smith firm will
decline to give a supplemental bond,
guaranteeing the completion of the
work within a specified time as a con?
dition of an extension of the time limit 1
by the Committee on Streets.
