In the Wake of the Game
By GUS MALBERT_
Traditionally the classic of the South.
H the football grame to-morrow after

H largest crowd yet attending any similar
MM contest in Richmond. There are many
H contributing cuses, none more potent
H than the interstate rivalry which has
B existed time oct of mind and which
H will always exist despite, at times, a
JH vast difference in the playing ability of
I the two teams. Just as tradition has
H built what one mlgnt call a sort of
B superlnterest in this game, so It has
H told of a wonderful display of strength
Hon the part of Carolina, when all the
H information indicated a woeful weak
I nets. It Is true this year, as it was
Blast, and the year before that, and so
Hon. until the year of the Tory first
We can recall, certainly a decade I
? ago. when that old. familiar cry was I
H heard. "Carolina hasn't shown her real!
Hstrength yet. She may be weak, but!
Hshe'll spring a surprise on Virginia," I
lor, "Carolina has something up her I
? sleeve." It's the same each year. "Car-1
Holrna will have something sip her I
H sleeve." and so frequently does Caro-I
Hlina really make good that the follower I
H of the game fears to miss even one I
H contest lest that be the one when the I
H unexpected will happen. The same I
H feeling has always been in regard to I
I the Tale-Harvard or Tale-Princeton I
I game. Tear after year crowds have I
I thronged tho arena to watch the same I

We have a letter from Carolina Agrl
cultural and Mechanical College which
says that the Aggies ?rill not protest
Bone and Battery, the two men against
whom Virginia and V. P. i. entered
protests. We are sorry, for we had
hoped that ths time had come when
each of the schools in the South At?
lantic division would adopt uniform
eligibility rales. Mind you, we are
making no charges against Messrs.
Baftery and Bone other than that they
are professionals. From what ws can
gather they are fin* young man. But
being professionals, ws cannot conceive
of their being allowed to compete
with amateur atbletea The Agglea by
not protesting. If not favoring, at least

No better proof that ths rule-niskers

that bat sixteen fatalities have been
