Before an expectant mass of
2,ooo spcctalucs^^^di.jt West
End Park Saturday afternoon, up-
on a neutral and fortified gridirom
the plucky tiger-clad eleven from
the technic shops of the Eastern
Alabama hills administered a
crushing and remorseless reverse to
the Blackstoiie votaries from histor-
ic Tuscaloosa. ■ ' yJSBM
For more than an hotlr before"
the referee's whistle signalled the
beginning of the. game an incessant
stream of anxious admirers of Au-
burn and the university poured rap-
idly through the gates of the spa-
tious enclosure, some filling the
grand-stand, and bleachers, others
nrmrrnrrtrrrg-rhc-gTi uind aifd~len7Iing
each his lusty voice to the concert
of the vicing rooters' yells.
Floating over the multitude was
a confusing array of colors, orange
and blue and crimson and white,
bantering widely for supremacy as
though it were truly symbolic of
victory in the game to come.
Greeted by the vibrating shouts
of a thousand wearers of the or-
ange and blue, the light Auburn
team trotted upon the fit... with con-
fident action, passed the pigskin
round a circle formed and ran
through a preliminary signal prac-
Thirty minutes later the universi-
ty squad appeared amid inspiring
ovations from every quarter of the
field. They presented a heavy, tow-
ering .aspect of brawn and strength
that forebode almost certain defeat
of their foxy kid opponents. But
whether this aggregation of flesh
author of the gloomy misgivings
was an infallible index to their
showing against the strategy, tac-
tics and elusiveness of the lighter
eleven, will later be seen
Ay BURN WON TOSS-UP.
Auburn won the toss-up and
chose to defend the western goal,
there being not the slightest wind to
favor either. "Are you ready, Cap-
tain Smith ? Are yc.u ready Captain
Forman?" A sharp, quivering whis-
tle rends the air, and one second
later the pigskin is tapped with a
mighty force by Webb of the Au-
buns and sent reeling through a
parabola, falling and fumbled by a
'\ arsity man 35 yards from the cen-
ter of the field. 'Varsity pounces
Upon the ball. Sperrie rnakes 3

GRIDIRON PICKUPS. ■
As the diagram and detailed ac-
count of the game will show, Tus-
caloosa was utterly unable to with-
stand the terrific rushes and bucks,
wheels and skirts of the light,
speedy Auburn team. From the
first kick-off, when Auburn could
be seen to dash across the field with
an almost vicious determination and
down a University lad in his tracks,
it could be easily seen that the crim-
son and wdiite was deplorably out-
classed. Then, too, when the ball
went immediately over on downs to
the dreadful, solid wall of the Au-
burnites, things looked most dark
and omnious for the 'V arsity and its
proud followers. But last of all,
when Auburn seized the ball and
lined up with characteristic alacrity,
which was supposed to have been
lost this year at least, and made one
fierce onslaught upon the ponderous
line of the crimson and white which
itself seemed stupefied at the. piteous
gap made among thhemselves, then
it was that 700 mouths were sur-
reptitiously hushed and an equal
number of waving colors yet damp
with enthusiasm was drooping in
SMITH COIII) MAN.
Lay exhibited veteran qualties in
bucking the line, Webb shot around
each end with impunity sometimes
alternating, sometimes drubbing
and boxing the same end with ruth-
less wantonness, while Allison with
leonine ability and fearlessness hur-
dled safely time after time the Uni-
versity line. Captain Smith played
a masterly - game," handled the ball
accurately and tossed it to the right
place, and despite his meager expe-
rience he was never disconcerted.
Three out of four goals is also no
slouch record. Coach Kent and as-
sistant Harvey say they have an
excellant man in Smith and will bet-
ter him 50 per cent, before the sea-
son is over.
As has been oft repeated, the fault
of the Auburn team is the slowness
in calling signals, especially notable
when one remembers how in previ-
ous years the eleven were recover-
ing from their former play with the
signal already given and never mis-
taken before the positions were as-
sumed for the following play.
The university team displayed
several faults. They will have j
learn to hold the ball when in their
possession, "cut out" so many fum-
bles and use ingenuity and tactics
in the real battle. They could never
untangle the steady, repeated,
straightforward plays of the Au-
burns however frequently they re-
curred. Their material is splendid
and it is hoped that before the next

Captain Zack P. Smith, Jr., of
the Auburn team, is a son of Mr.
and Mrs. Zack P. Smith, of this
city. He is in his junior year at the
Polytechnic, having entered the
sophomore class last term. He is
a hard student and very fond of
athletics, as his record on the grid-
iron shows. He secured his prelim-
inary education in the public
schools, the High School, and the
University High School. He is not
as far advanced as he would have
been because of sickness, having
lost over a year at the most impor-
tant time. Several other Birming-
ham boys came up with the team,
among them being Henley Smith,
Sam Ledbetter, Tom Catchings,
Clarence Ballard, J. C. Nelson, J.
D. Elliott and Charles Peed, of Au-
burn, and John Denson, of Tuska-

THE 11QXOR SYSTEM.
The .system as inaugurated last
year by the Senior and Junior
classes to all appearances worked
admirably. It is a source of con-
venience and solid comfort to both
professor and student. But better
still, it is a move in the direction to-
ward building up a sentiment
among the .students against "crib-
bing." Such a sentiment is given
up to be the only expedient remedy
for the monstrous evil. Our system
is yet defective, may be, from the
fact that it is young. We have
good material in college, the best,
and it is sincerely hoped that the
wholesome sentiments will continue
to grow. Many universities and
colleges throughout the ' United
States use the honor system, and
present living examples of its mcr-
i.ts. The following clipping ex-
plains some of its good qualities,
and how the matter is treated at
"The only successful campaign
which has been made against cheat-
ing in examinations' is in those
schools where, by one means or an-
other, the students have been im-
pressed with a sense of their respon-
sibility to one another for good be-
havior. Student sentiment that
cheating must not go on, it is gen-
erally agreed.Js the only rule .that, uort
will cure it.
"There are colleges which have
met this "cribbing" problem with al-
most complete success, notably
Princeton and' the University of
Virginia. At Princeton the system
is very highly developed, and a de-
scription of just how the matter is
treated seems worth while.
mi Jii 'n/nei e "is no ovcr^igfi't of the stu-
dents while examinations are in
yourself. Every true college man
is loyal to his own college in all its
branches, and glad to make sacri-
fices to advance its several interests.
Loyalty aud patriotism mean more,
far more than mere "words, words,
words." The Orange and Blue is
published by the student body, and

Anything at any time any student
will contribute will be an exhibition
of his loyalty to this important feat-
ure of the college. A man who is
never willing to do anything, but
from selfish motives, is not worthy
the name of a man. So please re-
member that it is your duty to con
tribute more than a lot of "hot air."
It is the wish of the editors to make
the paper better than it has ever
been in the past,. and to do this we

to elucidate any point that may be
raised concerning the meaning of
questions which are asked. He then
goes away, and leaves the janitor

Princeton's student court.
"Any case of cheating or suppos-
ed cheating, whether detected by the
professor from internal evidence in
the paper or by the students, is re-
ported to a student court. The stu-
dents feel that they have a compact
with the faculty to prevent all
cheating, and it is considered per-
fectly proper for a student to re-
port such an infraction of the laws,
just as it would not be considered
"tattling" for a man to report to
the police a case of burglary com-
mitted by his friend.
"The student court is constituted
of the four class presidents, and two
upper classmen chosen by the pres-
idents — presumably the six most
popular men in college. They con-
vene their court when a case is pre-
sented to them, and hear evidence
under oath. Their sessions are se-

they are being held unless a verdict
is made public.

The auburn Tigers were in A t-
lanta yesterday, and by their "decis-
ive victory over the Tech eleven
demonstrated that they are the same
Tigers of yore. In a superior game
of football for so early in the season
the Auburn eleven defeated the tex-
tile team by a score of 18 to 6 be-
fore 700 enthusiastic college stu-
dents and their friends.
In point of weight the two teams
had a pretty fair standoff, and when
they arranged themselves upon the
field between 3 and 4 o'clock there
were not a few who picked the
Techs as winners. The Techs are
a husky looking lot, jand give the
impression of being first rate foot-
ball timber. They were the first to
reach the ground's ami were geeted
with a rousing cheer by the Tech
rooters. Auburn came a little later
and trotted, to the field with a dash

their opponents. The first time
there was not steam enough back
of the attack and for several succes-
sive tries the textile backs ploughed
through the ranks of the Auburn
team with net gains of from one
to eight yards.

Techs 20 yards, when an offside

vies hit the line, but fell back with-
out a gain. Captain Young was
then given the ball and bucked for
three and a half. Auburn steadied
here, realizing that the Techs were
getting dangerous and held the
blacksmiths for three downs and
the ball went over.
With the ball in her possession,
Auburn supporters took heart and
looked to see the ground rapidly re-
gained. It was not to be, however,
for with a single gain of two and
a half yards Auburn fumbled," and
Tech was on the ball like a flash.
Captain Young took the ball and
plunged five yards and followed it
with three through the center. Da-
vies was given the ball for an in-
effectual try, and after three downs
the ball went over to Auburn again.
This time Auburn's line had held
and the Techs couldn't gain. A 25-
yard run around right end silenced
the rooters on the Tech side. There
.was not much doing after this, how-
ever and after gaining a few yards
it was the Tech's ball again.
The Techs had their opponents on
Davies, Cannon and Young then
did some good work in hitting the
line, and the Auburn goal crept
slowly toward the Techs. A couple
of offside plays by Auburn helped
to bring the Atlanta team some 10
yards nearer the coveted goal. Af-
ter taking the ball 25 yards it was
lost on downs, but after one play-
was regained again on Allison's
fumble. 'Young hammered the line
and it yielded up two and a half
yards. ■ Snowden tried an end run,
but was tackled behind the line and
hurt, lie had to retire from the
game with a sprained ankle, and
Shackelford was substituted.
It looked like the ball was going
over, and Brinson dropped back for
a kick. Auburn was overanxious,
and an offside play gave the Techs
10 yards. Young hit the line with
his full weight, and it measured
about four yards. Davies made an.
ineffectual try, and then Cannon, in
same mysterious way, shot through
the line right over center and can-
tered down the field for' a touch-
down, making a 45-yard sprint.
Quarterback Smith had an opportu-
nity to nail him, but didn't do it.
Brinson kicked a goal and the score
was 6 to o in the Tech's favor, -v/
This touchdown served to awak-
en Auburn and from this point on
it was a different team that played
the Tech. With a surprising dash
the Auburn backs hit the Tech line
and nearly every time for a gain.
Auburn kicked off 30 yards and
soon had the ball and was making
for a touchdown. In just two min-
utes after the ball was put in play
Auburn had scored a touchdown.
Straight- football, splendid line
plunging by the backs and a display
of speed did the work. Smith kick-

for the session there was a larger
and more appreciative attendance
than" -usual, the membership being
increased by several more than it
was last year.
Perhaps it would not be amiss to
give some points of information in
reference to the society.
There are no restrictions as to
membership, except ..that 'applicants

Wirt Literary Society.
As a result of the increased in-
terest in society work and the en-
thusiasm with which things are gen-
erally undertaken this session, the
Wirt Society, in keeping with the
spirit of the institution, has taken
on new life and has caught inspira-
tion from the advancement which
pervades all lines of college work
this year. ' -
It is quite gratifying to the vete-
ran members of the society, as
well as to the faculty, to learn that
the "rats" are taking an interest in
the development of the proper use
of their tongues as well as of their
bodies and minds. Boys are, in a
sense, waking up to the fact that
The firms that have advertise-
ments in our college paper de-
serve your patronage and it is
your nuty to patronize them.
They will do their best to accom-
modate you in every way possi-
ble. They have shown their
good will toward our college by
advertising in these coin inns,
and we should certainly do the
same toward them by throwing
in their way all the business
that we can.
We have received and read with
pleasure the following college pub-
lications so far. We are grateful
for this remembrance on the part of
our contemporaries, and we gladly
exchange paper with them. We
would like to exchange with other
colleges if they wish to do so:

A few weeks ago, in a Pennsyl-
vania college, the professor of bot-
any requested each student to bring
into his class on the morrow a com-
plete dandelion plant— root, stem,
leaves and flowers. In this class
was a young man, a sophomore,
considered above the "average as a
student in languages and mathe-
matical studies, who lives in one of
the Atlantic cities, who did not
know what plant was meant by dan-
This may be an extreme illustra-
tion of how many children are
trained and how little they know of
natural objects, but many others of
a similar character could be cited.
Few college students from- the cities
know our common/trees, by sight.
Comparatively few country boys
know the names of any grasses ex-
cept timothy and orchard grass.
The common mammals they may
know by name, but few know the
names of the birds about them.
Under the elective system now in
vogue in our colleges a man may
graduate from almost any intsitu-
tion, never having studied for an
hour chemistry, botany, geology,
zoology or any other science which
treats of nature. It is scarcely too
much to say that such graduates are
not fitted for any position as leaders
in modern life.
In Porto Rico a year ago a cler-
gyman who had made a tour of the
island was asked if he had seen the
coffee plants. He replied that he
had, and that they were annuals,
about the size of tomato plants !
And yet this man went to the is-
land that he might be informed
about it and its people. His early
education had been defective and he
could not observe.
Without some knowledge of
chemistry it is impossible for one
to read any good modern book,
journal or paper. Our civilization
is built on chemical knowledge. So.
also, because our age is so material,
one needs some knowledge of
plants, minerals and animals. If
these subjects should be pursued by
youth in general, how much more-
important are they for boys and
girls in the country ! A present dif-
ficulty Is that few teachers, compar-
atively speaking, know encugh of
botany, geology or zoology to give
any intelligent instruction in the
branches. They have been trained
in language and mathematics, but
science has been slighted. If they
attempt any instruction at all, it
is from a textbook, and science is
not to be learned from books. Think
of reading of a dandelion in a text-
book and not knowing it by sight. —
Take Adantage of the Societies.
In this season of the college year,
when football seems to offer the
field for the most glorious victo-
ries, too much can not be said in
favor of the literary societies. Vic-
tory upon the rostrum, where mind,
feason and eloquence constitute the
power, is just as glorious as victory
upon the gridiron, where muscle,
weight, acivity, courage and self-
control are the necessary qualities
for success. The literary societies
offer great opportunities for devel-
opment in thought and in speech,
and the proper use of the advan-
tages connected with them afford
ample preparation for contesting in
a field in which victory is most hon-
The societies ought to be attend-
ed regularly. By not attending and
making use of these advantages ot
this department of the college, op-
portunities will be lost which can
never be regained. College should
be attended with the single purpose
of making the most of it. After
graduation it will be too late to
realize the advantages offered.
Isn't it wise, isn't it a matter of
common sense, to develop every fac-
ulty possessed? It can not be de-
public is a most desirable attain-
ment, and this, is within the reach
of every student of this college. It
is not expected that all should" be-
come Daniel. Websters or -Henry
Clays, but it is possible for almost
every, student to learn to speak be-
fore the public with some degree
of case and. fluency.
The literary societies have so far
had_ some interesting meetings and
are just in shape to do good work.
Meetings should be held every Sat-
