Phone Madison 7053 VIRGINIA ALUMNUS EXPRESSES OPINION Deplores Action Taken by University and Smarts Under Imputation, From Public?Asks Many Questions, All Pertinent and Relating to the Long-Standing Controversy. ; Sporting Editor Times-Dispatch: H is evident that the athletic! authorities of tho University of Vir? ginia nna of V. p. J. are not fully j cognizant of the Interest which Is being I taken Hy tho public in the proposca ' resumption of athletic relations bo- ' tweoii theso two Institutions. Whether just tiled or not, there Is no denying th? fact that, whatever ex? planation may bo made of the failure to arrange a game for the coining football season, the verdict of the pub- ! lie Is that Virginia is cither afraid of V. 1'. I. or that its faculty committee i did net. at lta recent meeting, consider the proposed gamo without reference to past difference*, as promised by Dr. Lambeth. To offer as a roason for not meeting each other the theory that* a feeling of Intense partisanship would be engendered Is to o.-esont an argu? ment which satisfies nobody, nnd at tin- same I line to disregard the In? evitable resentment which the public will bear toward tho Institution that declines n contest without apparent cause. Some Pithy Questions. What peculiar condition Is there which renders It ltnposstblo for theso two Institutions to engngo In orderly athletic contests at tills time which dfd not apply to contests between the same institutions on tho occasion of former meetings? None of us ever heard anything of this Intense and bit? ter partisanship except since the sev? erance of athletic relations between them. What ha? happened since that time, if all of the past differences have been forgotten, to make future contests Im possible without arousing Intense and bitter partisanship? Are students or the Stale University ami the Stute, Polytechnic Institute nflllctod with any! peculiar characteristics whloh do not o long: to students of any other Insti? tutions and which constitute a bar to! future* contests between them? Dot the authorities of tho two instl-l tutlons g.' out and mingle with the people a little front whom they goi their patronage and support, and then let them say whether their interests will he best promoted by a resumption of athletic relations or a persistent disregard of each other. Suggests Honrd of Arbitration, Why not leave the whole matter of the terma and conditions of a meeting to a hoard of arbitration, composed in part of tho athletic heads of the two institutions? It is idle to pass the matter hy with the mere statement that tho Interests of the Institutions demand j that they do not meet. The alumni j and tho public' are not satisfied with this, and are not going to bo satisfied. | As an alumnus of Virginia. I confess j that 1 smart under the constant asser? tion that Virginia Is afraid to meet I V. p. i. Better suffer defeat than de? cline a contest on a ground which tends to strengthen rather than diminish this belief. Come, gentlemen. Let's have tho game or advance some reason for not having It which the public can under? stand. Virginia cannot afford to leave tho matter where It Is. "A VIRGINIA ALUMNUS." Richmond, January 1?. NOT YET DECIDED AS TO TRACK MEET Meeting of Track Team Committee Will Bej Held at College Next Week to Determine Whether to Hold Indoor Event or to Wait Until Spring and Use Baseball Park. Not until a mooting ot tho Committee on Track Athletics of Richmond Col? lege holds d meeting next weok will It he definitely decided regarding holding an indoor track moot In this city some time during the winter. Tin. question has now resolved Itself Into the ad? visability ef holding an indoor meet tills winter or watting until spring aim holding a meet at the ball park. .Manager F. W. Corley, of the track team, is authority for the above stato- i mo I it. lie also gave tho information that the exact dato for tho meeting had not been determined upon, but that It would positively bo held next week. Neither was he at nil positive that the llorae Show Building could not bo se? en cd In which to hold tho meet In Ute event that It was decided upon. lie was also of the opinion that the tlnil halt of tlie Blues' Armory would make an admirable placo in which to hold such a meet, provided suiuclent seats could bo obtained for tho audience. Hum .Ueu to Have CUnuce, As a matter of fact, the one am! only consideration regarding an indoor meet is whi ther or not the men can be put In proper condition to make a credit, able showing against tho olhor col? leges of the State to be Invited to take patt. Much time has been lost in get ting out the candidates and in secur? ing a coach for the team. Nov. that 1 laguinan, former track star at Columbia University, has been ohgnged, it would be neither lair to him nor the men who have come out, to put thorn through only superficial training and expect them to do as well I I as more seasoned athletes. Vor this reason It may appear advisable to hold J I on open air moot early in the spring. | j Never heforo In the ulstory ot ll-lch- j mond College has there been such a ; wealth of likely material for the tracK ! loam. More than thirty candidates are ? ; already out and heforo the week is j i elided It Is expected that the Squad i rill bu augmented by men who have I signified their Intention of making a j try for places on the teams. Oilman Will Return. One man who will be royally wel- j earned when he comes bacK to college! is W. .1. Oilman! Jr., of Richmond,'! Oilman is a fast man and will doubt J .oss make the star hurdler or me. squad. He Is also fait on the straight- ' away. Captain Taylor will be called upon to inolt after the sprints, while Strother, long of body and wind, who did the long tllstance running last year, will Again be called upon In these events, j Alien Walentine, another local boy, i looks good with tho pole, and wltlij proper handling should be able to go) high. In every oilier department can dldates aro working like beavers. Ilagaman has not yet taken cburge ot the squad, but will In a few days. Altogether prospects are bright lor Hie success of the school on tho track. The relay team will go to Washington to take part In tlm Oeorge Washington meet and will probably race against the Hutehetitcs. Everything will he i decided at the meeting next week and ? It Is not at all beyond the realm of pos I aiblllty tmrt an indoor meet will be. hehl in Richmond this winter. Shafts From Sportland . By G.

The beneficial effects of washes, sprays, inhalations, etc., are only temporary, and when left off the old condition returns, because the blood is infected with catarrhal matter and impurities. This impure condition of the circulation irritates and in? flames the delicate mucous mem? branes and tissues and produces the well known Symptoms of ringing noises in the head and ears, mucus in the throat, headaches, watery eyes, partial deafness, sore throat, genera.' impairment of health, etc. This con? dition will remain, growing worse an long as the catarrhal matter is al? lowed to remain in the blood. Tleing a specific blood impurity, there is only one way to cure Catarrh, ami that i-j to purify the blood. Nothing equals S. S. S. for this purpose. It attacks the disease at its head?in the circu? lation?and by thoroughly renovating the blood and cleansing it of all i in pure mattet, makes a perma? nent and lasting cure of the dis? ease. For forty years S. S. Si has been recognized as the best blood purifier, and the thousands of cases of Catarrh it has cured is proof that it is the very medicine needed by those who suffer with this trouble.
