Meharry's football team is hard at
work in. preparation for the season's
games which are fast approaching.
The men are getting into form and
many are showing some fine football
knowledge. Captain Dobson is hav
ing the first and second teams line up
against each other every afternoon so
as to get a line on- the men who are
to fill the vacancies in this year's team.
The backs for this year are showing
up well; they are very fast, in fact, It
is sure to be the fastest backfield that
ha,s ever defended the red and black.
The Walden Scrubs played a rather
ragged game with the Pearl High
School Saturday, and by luck won 5-0.
There is much enthusiasm over the
coming games among the rooters, and
each day at practice many are out to
see the work-outs. The Freshman
Class Team has been out, and will give
the 'Varsity some hard work, as it is
composed of good, strong fellows who
have had some experience in football.
The Athletic Association is to give
a concert at the Auditorium Friday
night to defray some small expenses.
Terry, Allison and Carr are the back
field so far, and make fast running
mates when they get. to going.
The Meharry Quartette made its first
public appearance at the First Bap
list Church Monday evening. They
will be on the program Friday night at
the Athletic Association's concert,
which will be in charge of J. Champ.
Diekerson, and is destined to be a suc
cess. The best talent of the college
will appear, also the Meharry Band.
The band, under the direction of C. B.
Johnson, plays some very catchy music.
The Facts of the Situation.
"The season is growing old and as
yet we have not had any representa
tive game of Jootball among our local
schools. The public has grown hungry
and if the management of the differ
ent teams don't hurry, the public will
have lost their appetite." This is the
expression of some who have not taken'
the matter under due consideration.

Jack Johnson first. In Los Angeles
Burns said he would sign articles of
agreement calling for a fight with Jack
Johnson before the club offering the
biggest purse. He said that if Pro
moter Coffroth would hang up the $25r
000 purse originally tendered for such
a match he would accept it, the fight
to occur within a reasonable length of
time. The challenge hurled at him bv
Gans on behalf of Jackson is what
stirred Burns up to action, and he says
in order to convince the public that
ne is not afraid of Johnson he will
take him on.. Tommy will, however
insist upon an 18-foot ring, as he feels
that in a 20 or 24-foot ring the Negro
champion will resort to runaway tac
tics that will not only rob the fight of
interest, but will also cause him to
get leg-weary and foot-sore chasing
him. "A 10-foot ring would suit me
better than anything else," said Burns
"You couldn't make the ring too smal
for me when I fight Johnson."
While Tommy claims to have had
