that you should continue to believe in my justice, my
honor and my sympathy for you. For we must work
together to regain what has been lost, to rebuild what
has been torn down and to build more worthily, to
search ourselves honestly and conscientiously lest there
be any fault in us, and to correct such fault. Only bj
such faithful searching can
'Men rise on stepping stones
Of their dead selves to higher things'."
THE PRESENT STATUS OF ATHLETICS
"Nat" J. Cartmell Head Coach
Excepting the question of eligibility of players
which rests with the faculty athletic committee, ath-
letic management at the University as the result of a
forward move last year in the reorganization of the
athletic association is now vested in an athletic council
composed of the managers of football, baseball,
basketball and track, the president of the athletic asso-
ciation, the editor-in-chief of The Tar Heel, a
student at large, and a member of the faculty. In this
representative student athletic council under the
visement of one member of the faculty chosen by the
council is concentrated the responsibility of electing
the graduate manager, employing the coaches, and of
shaping and directing the financial policy of athletics.
The funds of the athletic association will be handled
through Proctor C. T. Woollen, quasi-graduate man-
ager. The home source of revenue is the newly insti-
tuted five dollar fee for membership in the association
which entitles each member to see every athletic con-
test on the local grounds. With this more substantial
financial basis and with concentrated responsibility in
an efficient council to supplant what proved to be
desultory, inexperienced, and unbusinesslike
management, athletics at the University are on a foundation
for gradual growth into greater effectiveness.
Another forward move was the selection of N. J.
Cartmell, the remarkably successful track coach, to be
head coach of all university athletics. This selection
won the confidence of the whole student body. The
students have believed in "Nat" from the moment he
came quietly into Chapel II ill with the world's
championship medals hidden away from eager eyes. The
first year he wenl about his work simply and
persistently to rebuild or rather to build an athletic activity
of little consequence in point of interest or
achievement. With what was left over from other forms of
athletics in his short stay here Cartmell has placed
track above them all and has made Carolina a mightier
name in South Atlantic athletics, twice winning the
State meet and scoring second place last spring in the
Southern meet at Baltimore.
Cartmell is a native of Kentucky and a former resi-
dent of Asheville. lie is a loyal alumnus of Pennsyl
vania and a splendid product of Penn's wizard trainer.
Mike Murphy. Not satisfied with American collegiate
and amateur honors in the 100 and 220 dashes, he
met Postle. the Australian world's champion, and
lowered the world's record in the furlong.
Cartmell is an unusual mixture of a man.
