Grandpa Wilson And Baby Sayre. All the Washington papers are hav-in.- a few little jokes on the august President of the United States, whe these days is only conscious of hi new dignity as grandfatherto the newly arrived little Sayre. The baby is to be christened in the White lions,- it is said, but rumor declarer that its grandfather has had so many name sakes that he has reauested his daugh ter that her first born be not named for him. In consequence 'of the Presi dent's wish that the "bov stand on his own feet" as it is reuorted he has expressed it, it" is now believed that the small boy may be named for his father. While it is known that Baby Sayre is the eleventh child born in the White House. Miss Esther Cleveland still holds, it is claimed, the honor of being the r-ally true aristocrat of the Executive Mansion, for she did not arrive to a guest, but to the wife of a President of the United States. Four nf the so-called illustrious infants who first saw the light in the White House simply happened to be born there, because their father. Major Donaldson, and his family were domiciled under the historic roof while he was Presi dent Andrew Jackson's secretary. While President Cleveland became the father of three of "his children while in office, as has been pointed out, but one. Miss Esther, was the only child of a President ever born in the Executive Mansion. It is quite a. coincidence that today Baby Sayre's young father happens to be an assistant of President Garfield, of Williams College, the "son of our martyred President.

Chapel Hill, Feb, 6. When on Thursday Captain Laurence Woodall. of Carolina's baseball suuad. issued an informal call for candidates for pre liminary training around seventy-five candidates trotted out to Emerison athletic field. The nrosrrmn for nmc- tice will be necessarily restricted until spring weather offers inducements for all sorts of training. The battery will occupy the chief interest till then. Balmy weather will considerably re cruit the number of candidates, and the chances are that 100 wjll go into preliminary training. What are the prospects for devel oping a creditable nine to represent Carolina? Five of the 1914 players are again candidates for the season's nine. They are the pick of the past stetson. captain vvooaaii will again do the catching. His summer's vaca tion was not idled away. He played with the Dillon, S. C, and in appre ciation of his services his teammates awarded him a watch with the word "Woody" inscribed on it, and his bat ting record 398 put in letters. He was manager of the club. Hubert Bailey, of Wake county. 1914 centerfielder, was a member of the Iaurinburg baseball aerjrrecration during the summer. His batting rec ord climbed to 450. Bailey for two seasons has demonstrated his unex celled capacity as an outfielder in Carolina's roster of baseball teams. lie has a knack of driving to the far bounds of the diamond two and three-base hits in times when they county for tallies. Marshall Williams, of Faison; Ben AytocK, ot ritinont, uim L.im Shields, of Halifax county, are the let ter men of 1914 again on the "Hill," ready to exhibit their twirling ca pacities in a spirited three-cornered race fur regular jobs. Williams and Shields have joined the squad in the afternoon's preliminary training. Ay cock will later cast his membership with the pitching staff. Regulars of the 1914 season in the infield that will again get in the rac are Daniel McLewis, of Kinston, third baseman, and James Hardison, of Wadesboro, first baseman. Lewis has had two years experience as a regu lar, while Hardison has been a regu lar only one season. The anxiety of reports from the mid-term examinations was testimony to the effect that there are new play ers in college that will enter the field against regulars. The majority of the men evidencing any real merit as players are entitled to participate in athletic events by right of scholarship test. Kimbrough Sheek, of Mocks ville, third baseman for Weaver Col lege in 1914, will be in the running. Sheek was a member of the nine rep resenting Raeford against Morganton in the amateur State championship this past summer. He played on Trinity Park teams in 1912 and 1913. Paul Bruce, of Mars Hill, baseball captain of Elon College team last sea son, gives promise of being the strong est bidder for the position or short stop. His hitting capacity was dem onstrated at Mars Hill m 1912 and last season at Elon. His entry for the berth of shortstop should consider ably strengthen Carolina's prospects. 'Bill" Pope, known back home as "Home-Run Tope," for his phenome nal batting record in amateur organi zations, has other capacities which strongly recommend him for the job of first station on the circuit. i'ai- of Concord, former 'irinity first sacker, will be reckoned contest for this berth. He have played throughout last but for the'accident which re- THE NEW AMERICA Beloved country, see ! The world looks up to thee To banish war. Now is the time to do; Bantire the earth anew. And lead the nations throu; God's open door. Bid warring nations cease, Iteveal the path of peace. And lead men there. Again Earth's hope upspriugs, Again the herald sings. And sound of angel wings Is in the air. Tnto the coming day, J'nto God's holy way, Set now thy face; 1 nations on thee wait, smite the bonds of hate! to man's true estate Lead thou our race. If thou dost heed the call. War's grim redoubts shall fall, Crumbled at larst. Bright shall thy glory shine, Leading in ways divine; Bouse thee! the day is thine. Blow thou the blast! Spirit of Freedom, thou. When men read on thy brow : Justice and love; Tyranny's night is o'er. Black night of want and war. And darkness veils no more The God above. F. P. WILLIAMS.

Royster an players of the iyi4 season, alternated as regular at Nance is an outfielder and infielder. orre Tandy, football center, has been heralded as a twirler of no mean ability. He may enter the field against the trio of regulars of last season. Tandy was debarred from en try as a candidate last season.
