OCTOBER, 1913 

Number 1 


THE Xlie 119th session of the Fniversity 

NEW YEAR opened September 11th with prospects 
o£ being the best year to date in the 
University's long history. The attendance from the 
very first indicated that it would go beyond all pre- 
vious records, and on September 30th it had reached 
the high mark of S5G, being 19 more than the total 
enrollment of 1912-13. 

Any apprehension which may have been felt as to 
whether or not the student body would continue to 
manifest the splendid spirit which dominated the 
Class of 1913 at the close of its stay on the Campus, 
was completely dispelled during registration by the 
perfect conduct of the student body. There was no 
bell ringing, no gun play, no once familiar admo- 
nition to "lie low.'' Instead there was a cordiality 
of feeling which pervaded everything and a spirit of 
forward looking which must mean much to Carolina 
in the year before her. 

In scholarship, the average attainment of those en- 
tering seems to have been higher than previously. 
The Freshman Class appears to be a promising group. 
At the other end of the course, in the Graduate 
School, a 'like progress is evident. The number of 
graduate students is greater by 11 than it has ever 
been — the total 39 — and the men taking advanced 
work are exceptionally well prepared. Between these 
two groups, the other classes and the professional 
schools give promise of high achievement. 


THE Coincident with the oiJening has been 

ALUMNI the presence in large numbers of alum- 

ni on the campus. Various purposes 
have brought them here. Some have come to place 
brothers or friends under the care of alma mater; 
others, to participate in the exercises of College Night 
or the fraternity initiations; others, to express their 
interest in athletics, and to look over the football 
squad; others, to visit the "Hill" before settling down 
to a years' duties in other fields — all to uphold alma 
mater's hands and. bid her God speed. 

UNIVERSITY University Day, the 12th of October, 
DAY will fall on Sunday. That will probalv 

ly mean tiiat celebrations will have to 
be held on Friday or Saturday preceding. The cele- 
bration here will be held on the morning of the 11th, 
Saturday, with Hon. Josei)hus Daniels, Secretary of 
the Navy, as the alumni speaker. But the point is 
that the local celebrations should be held at all events, 
whatever the day. This is tremendously important. 
It is vital, both to the local associations and to the 

In previous years the celebration meetings have 
sometimes been skipped because there was nothing 
to do ! But there is something to do, and so much of 
it that another question arises, "Ought not the local 
organizations to meet several times a year and start 
something?" The University is looking afield. It 
wants to help upbuild North Carolina. It wants to 
touch the life of the communities in which its alumni 
live. The local associations can aid it in making the 
proj^er connection. They can take part in the work 
itself. Let the celebrations this year be forward 
looking as well as reminiscent. 


ALUMNI Xhe section of The Review which is 

REPORTS of greatest interest to the alumni is 

that which deals with alumni happen- 
ings. Therefore, let all officers — the secretaries espec- 
ially — mail to the Alumni Editor good reports of the 
meetings held on University Day. Individual alum- 
ni also are urged to send notices concerning them- 
selves. The editors cannot make this section inter- 
esting without the co-operation of each individual 
alumnus. Furthermore there is no editorial immod- 
esty in sending notices, even if they are about one's 


^^^ The vitality of the University is ex- 

ACTIVITIES pressing itself this year in the intro- 
duction of several new activities and 
th<' extension of former ones. Among the new, one 
wiiich promises to be of very great benefit to the 
internal life of the University is the system of Fresh- 
man Advisors. The object of the system is to 



help the Freshman Class find itself in such a way 
that 40 i^cr cent, of its meiubershiij — the ^jrcsent jjer 
cent. — will not be lost to the University every year. 
It further contem]ilates the more complete social and 
intellectual upbuilding of every University student. 
Its work will he watched with keen interest. 


ACTIVITIES As outlined on another page, the work 
EXTENDED of fjie Bureau of Extension is to cover 
more ground this year than last. The 
High School Debating Union has been placed upon 
a permanent basis; the Library will offer increased 
service along the line of general iuformation and 
package libraries ; the School of Education will con- 
duct a Teachers' Bureau and offer correspondence 
courses for teachers; the Departments of Economics 
and History, together with the County Clubs, plan 
to aid those interested in municipal and state legisla- 
tion or the improvement of rural economic and social 
conditions; and the faculty as a whole proposes to 
give lectures, upon request, for the benefit of those 
seeking information about general or specific sub- 
jects. The Bureau is hard at work and good results 
will necessarily follow. 

ATHLETICS Predictions as to athletics for the pres- 
ent year are not in order at this time. 
The future will have to show whether the foundations 
now being laid are good or otherwise. But here are 
facts upon which it is not too much to base something. 
The alumni have become seriously interested in ath- 
letics generally; a jiermanent system of coaching has 
been adopted ; splendidly qualified coaches have been 
secured to train the 'Varsity; class teams, especially 
the Freshman and Sophomore, are being drilled with 
a view to the production of 'Varsity material later 
on ; systematic gymnasium work is being required of 
all Freshman in order to build up good sound 
bodies; and the student athletic fee furnishes a basis 
for proper athletic support. These things dught to 
count ultimately. 


THE The Review faces the year eonfident- 

REVIEW ]j. It made a hard campaign in its 

behalf during the summer and it hopes 
with the continued support of the alumni to make its 
second year more eventful than its first. To do this, 
however, will require the hearty co-operation of all 
the alumni both as to material with which to fill its 
pages aud subscriptions and advertisements with 
which to meet its expenses. Aid in securing these 
will be helpful. 


The Bureau of Extension Outlines Constructive Plans 

From a Bulletin now in the hands of the Univer- 
sity printer the following announcement is taken : 

"The Bureau of Extension of the University of 
North Carolina offers to the people of the State: 

"I. General Infoemation concerning books, 
readings, essays, study outlines and subjects of gen- 
eral interest. Literature will be loaned from the 
Library upon the payment of transportation charges 
each way. 

"II. Insteuction by Lectuees. Lectures of a 
popular or technical nature and addresses for com- 
mencement or other special occasions will be fur- 
nished any community which will pay the traveling- 
expenses of the lecturer. 

"III. CoERESPONDENCE CouESES for teachers, in 
Arithmetic, Economics, Education, English, German, 
Latin, North Carolina History, Ilural Economics, 
Rural Education, Solid Geometry, and United States 

"IV. Guidance in Debate and Declamation 
Jhrough the High School Debating Union, special 

bulletins and handbooks, and material loaned from 
the Library. 

"V. County Economic and Social Surveys

aid to communities and schools in securing efiieient 
teachers and as a clearing house for information con- 
cerning secondary schools and college entrance re- 

"For full information, address The Bureau of 
Extension, .Chapel Hill, N. C." 

All of the work thus outlined is being rapidly 
pushed in order that the service may begin immediate- 
ly. "Extension Lectures for jSTorth Carolina Com- 
munities," being bulletin three in the Extension Se- 
ries, is now at press. It gives the titles of some one 
hundred lectures that members of the faculty will 


offer to the public on general or specific subjects. 
This work is in the hands of a sn'b-committcc of the 
Extension Bureau composetl of L. K. Wilson, A. H. 
Patterson and M. H. Stacy. 

The .Correspondence Courses, the first to be of- 
fered by the University, will be given liy various 
members of the faculty under the general supervision 
of Dean Noble, of the School of Education. 

The work of the High School Debating Union 
begun last year by the Di and Phi Societies, has been 
taken over, in Jiart, by the Bureau, and a sixty page 
bulletin, containing query, briefs, and references, will 
be mailed before the fiVst of November to the hun- 
dred and fifty schools which are members of the 
Union. E. R. Rankin is in active charge of this 

The county economic and social survey work is well 

under way, the county clubs of last year having laid 
the foundation for the enlarged work of this year. 
The idea which predominates in this activity is that 
of knowing one's own home county with a view to 
upbuilding it. The county clubs are being directed 
in this work by Acting President Graham, Prof. Z. 
V. Judd, Dr. C. L. Raper, and Prof. E. C. Branson, 
of the State jSTormal School of Athens, Ga. 

Drs. Rajicr and Hamilton are in charge of the 
municipal and legislative reference department; Pro- 
fesors Walker and Graham are directing the teachers' 
bureau; and the Library supplies outlines and pack- 
age libraries whenever general information is sought. 

The complete committee is as follows: Louis 
R. Wilson, E. K. Graham, N. W. Walker, M. H. 
Stacy, A. IT. Patterson, C. L. Raper, H. W. Chase, 
M. C. S. Noble, and Collier Cobb. 


The Foundation for Sound Football is Begun 

When Pendleton and Wilson went out to begin 
the active field coaching they found contrary to the 
wild reports a little more than the usual amount of 
crude raw material. Theirs is a big job — to round 
out a team ivom this untutored throng of ninety men. 
It is not a months' task, it will take two years to 
establish the Princeton system here where there have 
been successively the Pennsylvania tactics, the Yale 
formation, and a varying hedge podge. Trenchard, 
Wilson, and Pendleton are s]ilendid coaches but they 
cannot contravene an unyielding law of life that 
organisms and systems evolve and develop slowly. It 
is their purpose to build for i^ermanence. 

If coaching can turn the trick then it will be turn- 
ed in good time. Trenchard, one of the greatest ends 
of all time, is looking after the ends. Wilson, an all- 
American guard, is coaching the linemen, and Pen- 
dleton, Princeton's wonderful halfback, has charge 
of the backs. Toward the permanent system Kluttz, 
of Davidson, is making an incalculable contribution 
in his expert direction of class athletics. He has 
special supervision of the freshman and sophomores. 
Two other men are coaching the juniors and the sen- 
iors. In the system that is being developed now, the 
alumni responsible are seeking to take what is natur- 
ally Carolina's and get out of it all that is in it, and 
before Trenchard's three year contract is up there will 
"be another story to tell that doesn't begin with sixty 
nor end with nothing. 

Half of last year's squad are back eager to have a 
part in remaking a Carolina eleven, Capt. Abernathy, 

tackle, Huske and Ilomewood, ends, Tayloe, half, and 
R. Abei'nathy, full. The closest contests are be- 
tween R. Abernathy and Tandy for centre and Orr 
and Lord for quarter. Ervin, Cowell, Ramsey, Pope 
and Burnett, and Edwards make up some of the 
other most promising material. 

Wliile the coaches are patiently on their jobs 
it is the part of Carolina men to discount extrava- 
gant talk, back up the athletic committee in their 
purpose to keej) true to the eligibility requirements, 
and ask for results not later than November, 1914. 


Wake Forest's pej} kept Carolina's weight from 
jjushing across the goal line but one time. In the 
second quarter Tayloe got within striking distance 
and went over in a brilliant dash. In the first quarter 
Carolina got near the goal line and lost a good chance 
on a fumble. Daniels of Wake Forest, broke into 
Carolina's other chance to score by turning an inter- 
cepted forward pass into a touchback. Wake Forest 
never seriously threatened Carolina's goal line. Tay- 
loe and Ervin played brilliantly for Carolina. Dan- 
iels, Carter, and Trust did exceptionally good work 
for Wake Forest. 

On the whole the game was a disappointment.

Carolina showed a very decided improvement in 
the game against Virginia Medical College on Octo- 
ber 4. The effect of a week's training by Trenchard, 
Pendleton, and Wilson was seen in a more smoothly 
working machine and a better fighting spirit. 

The score was 15 to in favor of Carolina. A 
tonchdowa was made in the first quarter, Ervin carry- 
ing the ball across. Another was made in the third, 
Ervin again carrying the ball over. Tayloe tried for 
goals both times, succeeding the first and missing the 
second. In the fourth quarter a safety by Carolina 
made the score 15. Lord started tbe game as quarter, 
was succeeded by Allen in the latter part of the 
second, and was sent in again in the fourth. With 
practice Lord and Allen will both develop into cap- 
able generals. Orr was sick and was unable to get 
in the game. 

The best playing was done by Ervin at full and 
Homewood at left end. The line as a whole held fast 
and made openings for the backs when needed ; the 
playing of Tayloe and Pope was steady and consistent 
throughout. For the opponents the best playing was 
done by Tyler, at center ; Walker, at left tackle ; and 
Euttrell, at quarter. The visitors had a lot of husky, 
heavy, and capable material, but lacked practice and 

Carolina's line-up was : R. G., Homewood, Tennent, and 
Harris ; R. T., Capt. Abernethy, Kernodle ; R. G., Johnson,

With the object in view of encouraging the play- 
ing of football in the high schools of North Carolina, 
the General Alumni Athletic Association of the Uni- 
versity has made plans for a state-wide contest among 
the high schools this fall. The chief hindrance to 
successful college football in the State heretofore has 
been the lack of experienced men. Only a very small 
percentage of the present Freshman Class of the 
University, for instance, have ever played football, 
and it is with the hope that more of our high schools 
can be induced to put in footlball that a plan for a 
contest is submitted to them. 

The plan for the contest is briefly this : 

1. For this year the contest shall be open to public 
high schools, city and rural, and not to private high 

2. Any team representing a public high school, 
city or rural, that has not been defeated by a team of 
similar rank up to and including Nov. 15th, shall be 
eligible to enter the contest, provided it shall have 
played at least three games. 

3. To be eligible for a place on any team a player 
must be a bona fide .student of the high school he 
represents. To be a bona fide student he shall have 
been in regular attendance for at least one^hird of 
the term up to the time of any game in which he 
participates and must make passing grades on his 

4. Immediately after Nov. 15th the Committee 
on High School Athletics will arrange preliminary 
contests for the purpose of selecting two teams which 
shall come to Chapel Hill for the final contest for the 
State High School Championship. 

5. The General Athletic Association will bear all 
expenses, including transportation, of the two teams

selected for the fiual contest, and while ou the ''Hill" 
these teams will be entertained by the Association. 

These plans, it will be seen, will not interfere 
with any games already scheduled. A school will 
simply go ahead with its regular schedule, and if on 
Nov. loth no games have been lost and as many as 
three have been won, then it will be entitled to enter 
the competitive contest with other schools of the same 
record for the trip to Chapel Hill. The committee 
at Chapel Hill will arrange the schedules for this 
competitive series. 

In not allowing the scope of this contest to take in 
the private and denominational high schools, it was 
Ijy no means meant to disregard them. It was simply 
impossible at the late season to plan out a contest that 
would include them, also. Then, too, games between 
the leading preparatory schools and the different class 
teams of the University have already been arranged 
by the Greater Council through T. C. Boushall as a 

It is hoped that this plan will receive the support 
of the school men of the state, and that by it football 
playing in the secondary schools can be encouraged. 
The active sujiport of the alumni in getting the local 
high schools interested will be a great helji to the 
committee at Chapel Hill. All correspondence should 
be addressed to Mr. C. E. Ervin, secretary of the 

was such a wonderful success. The Union which was 
organized by the Dialectic and Philanthropic Lit- 
erary Societies of the University involves a state- 
wide contest in debate among the secondary schools, 
with the winning teams under certain conditions com- 
ing to Chapel Hill to contest for the championship 
and the Aycock Memorial Cup. This year the Uni- 
versity takes over in large part the financial side of 
the movement and purposes to do all in its power to 
make its success and accompanying benefit to the 
high schools complete. 

The query that has been selected for all the schools 
having membership in the Union is: "Besolved, That 
the Constitution of North Carolina should he so 
amended as to allow the Initiative and Referendum 
in state-wide legislation." 


Definite plans are being made by tlie University 
for the continuation and extension of the High School 
Debating Union of North Carolina, which last year 


The session of the Summer School for 1913 was the 
largest and best in all its history. The attendance 
i-eached even 500, being 37 greater than in 1912. 
In addition to this, 48 pupils from the village were 
enrolled in a model practice school conducted by the 
University in the Peabody Building. Of the 500 
students, 112 were men and 388 women. Of the 
entire enrollment 4G4 were teachers, 24 were stu- 
dents preparing for college, and 12 miscellaneous. 

The session brought out several significant facts. 
The l)iggest of these was that the teachers of the 
State are realizing that the University is their Uni- 
versity. Loans of books from the Library, services 
rendered by the Bureau of Extension, aid freely 



given ty individual instructors and other similar ser- 
vices have helped convey this idea and it is becoming 
generally accepted. They are beginning to look to 
the University for increasing aid and guidance in 
constructive educational work. 

Another was the very great usefulness of the Pea- 
body Building as a center for the work of the School 
of Education. The building is splendidly adapted 
to the needs of the Summer School, and the mere 
gathering together in one building for recitation 
purposes of some three to five hundred students at 
one time was inspiring in itself. 

The classroom work of the school was an improve- 
ment over that of former years, and the per cent of 
college trained teachers present ran far above that 
of previous sessions. Sixteen schools and colleges of 
the State had delegations ranging from six to sixty 
in number, and other colleges wei'e represented by 
smaller delegations. 

The spirit of play was also delightfully evidenced. 
It was manifested in no neglect of duty, but by 
hearty participation in dramatics, music, fetes, and 
social events which were inspirational as well as 
recreative. It helped give proper proportion to the 
whole work of the school and added to its otherwise 
decided success.

Coincident with the other branches of the Uni- 
versity, the Law School is keeping up its usual good 
record. It furnished twenty-nine young men out of a 
total of sixty-seven who passed examinations at Kal- 
eigh, August 25, 1913. This was the largest mim- 
• ber coming from any one college in the State. These 
twenty-nine are now scattered throughout the state

The freshmen were ex]n'essly introduced to Uni- 
versity life Thursday night, September 11. Under 
the direction of the Y. M. C. A., College Night was 
devoted to a presentation of the ^College activities by 
representative students. Acting President Graham 
opened the meeting with an interesting discussion 
of the related values of campus activities and class 
room work. Seymour Whiting, '14, editor-in-chief 
of the Yackety Yach, explained the purpose of the 
college publications. Frank Taylor, '11, who was a 
member of debating teams that defeated Pennsyl- 
vania and Virginia, held up the value of the literary 
societies to the college and the new men. Shepherd 
Bryan, '15, dramatic satellite, presented the claims 
of dramatics with a punch. James Holmes spoke on 
the purpose and spirit of the Young Men's Christian 



Association. Oscar Leach, i:)resiclent of the Senior 
class, sjioke on the honor system and called ni^on the 
new men to enter into its spirit. Rattling good ath- 
letic talks were made hy Graduate J\ranager Mc- 
Lendon, Head Coach Trenchard, and his associates,

To a servant of the University abroad in search of 
his health the best wishes of the community go out. 
The presidency of any college is a wearing position 
and particularly so during periods of rapid expan- 
sion. The thirteen years which have seen Doctor 
Venal)le at the head of this institution iiave seen 
growth in every direction, healthy and encouraging. 
To his lot it has fallen to build, in large part, the 
present physical University, to set high standards for 
it, and to bring it to a position where it is able to 
serve the State directly and in an increasingly large 
way. By what struggles he has accomplished this 
work only he knows ; and that he should feel the strain 
is no more than one could expect. His search for 
rest and the restoration of his health is but a prepara- 
tion for the continuance of what to him is a lahor of 
love. May he find the rest he seeks and return to 
carrv the work forward. — Tar Heel, Sept. 18.

Tlie publication of Esther Wake or The Spirit of 
the Begulators: a play in Four Acts (Edwards and 
Broughton Printing Co., Ealeigh, N. C, 1913), by 
Mr. Adolpli Vermont, Superintendent of Schools at 
Smithfield, N. C, possesses a dual significanee in the 
history and literature of North Carolina. During his 
incumbency as Instructor in Romance Langiuiges at 
this University, Mr. Vermont demonstrated his tal- 
ents and his versatility in various directions, especial- 
ly his skill as a linguist and his dramatic sense. It 
was no surprise, then, when in the smnmer of 1912 
Mr, Vermont produced bere bis own play of Esther 
Wake, then in manuscript. The play was the out- 
come of a suggestion of Professor N. W. Walker, 
who urged Mr. Vermont to write a play based upon 
North Carolina history, to be presented before the 
Summer School, of which Mr. Walker was director. 

I was present at that first performance, the setting 
for which — the east entrance of the old University Li- 
brary — was entirely ideal, and at the same time thor- 
oughly suitable, theatrically as well as esthetically. It 
was fortunate that Mr. Vermont pratically "tried out" 
bis play before giving it enduring form in print. For 
the original production revealed the many signs of 
-a garrulous opening of long- 

tbe 'j)rentice hand- 

winded exposition ; unpruned exuberance of figure, 
metaijhor, and "poetic'' sentiment; a thoroughly un- 
motived transfer of affection from " villain " to 
"hero" ; and, most serious fault of all, an inconclus- 
ive, inartistic ending — a full stop, which was not a 
conclusion. Susceptible to suggestion in the proper 
sense, quick to seize the truth of an exposed weakness 
and to remedy it, the author conscientiously studied 
his problem anew in the light of expert criticism 
which he had sought in several directions. 

Again, in the summer of 1913, Mr. Vermont pro- 
duced his play before tbe University Summer School, 
but this time from the printed work itself. The 
work as re-written, exhibits a remarkable transforma- 
tion from the first version. For Mr. Vermont demon- 
strated that he not only realized the weak points in 
his first version : he knew bow to remedy them. This 
is not to say that tbe play is free from defect; it is 
to say that, in its present form, it is built to withstand 
criticism and does so with commendable success. 
Most conspicuous of the improvements are the end 
and the beginning. The spectator is brought into 
contact with the play's "action" quickly — instead of 
having to listen to the meanderings of octogenarian 
garrulity. As for the conclusion, the alteration is 
transforming. In his first version, the author gives 
us only an individual tragedy; or at least, with every 
intention of giving us something more, be failed to 
draw together his threads at the end in sucb a way 
as to make that larger import predominant. There 
is at once strength, nobility, and historic accurracy 
in tbe final "gallows speech" of Pugh; and in it the 
author, in responding to suggestions, concretizes and 
epitomizes the meaning of his own play — and, as I 
take it, the meaning of Pugh's sacrifice, the meaning 
of the popular uprising known in history as the Regu- 
lation. Says Pugh to Tryon : — 

"Sir, I love the hills and the light that is upon 
them. I have listened to the rush of the rivers, the 
song of the pines, and I love their music. They 
would hush their voices, and the hills would hide 
their crests in darkness, should their freeman-sons 
bow down before a master. Son of England, we, 
too, are Saxons. We have learned the law of liberty 
from the lips of our fathers. They brought this law 
with them from their Saxon bomes, and their love of 
freedom grew in the untrammeled forest, on the un- 
spoiled plains, under the expanse of our wide heavens. 
On our necks there is no place for the foot of tbe 
tyrant. Our Saxon hearts know love, they do not 
know submission — . Your battle has but begun: 
unless you put away from you your faithless Coun- 
selors, unless you and England treat the Colonists 



as freemen, not only Carolina, but the East and the 
South will array itself in war against your scarlet 
soldiers. Alamance prophesies your defeat: the blood 
you shed is martyr blood, from every drop will spring 
a race of men, undaunted and unconquered. The 
echoes of our battle will be heard on all this Conti- 
nent, the groans of the dying llegulators will be a call 
to arms to the young American race." 

Mr. Vermont's play possesses dual significance. It 
undoubtedly possesses real merits as a work of liter- 
ature. It furnishes, moreover, a really conspicuous 
examjDle as a pioneer in the field of the historical 
drama with North Carolina setting. Mr. Vermont 
cleverly turns tradition to his own ends, for the sake 
of achieving the richest contrast, and making the 
confiict as sharp and clamant as possible — notably in 
following certain pseudo-historians in the error that 
the presiding judge dismissed Fanning on the pay- 
ment of "one penny and costs." In reality. Fanning 
was convicted of extortion, resigned his office, and 
sentence was postponed until the most expert legal 
and judicial opinions of the day were summoned. In 
utilizing his "iJoetic license" as a dramatist, the au- 
thor was entirely within his right; and the result, 
though a violation of history, is dramatically logical 
and effective. Indeed, the play concerns itself with 
a character, Esther Wake, now believed to be wholly 
mythical. My own researches into this period have 
brought out the interesting fact that Edmund Fan- 
ning was the declared lover of the lovely and fasci- 
nating Amelia Johnston, daughter of William John- 
ston, of Hillsborough, who was a near relation of 
Governor Samuel Johnston. The gold and ivory 
miniature which Fanning presented to this young 
lady, during the days of his ardent courtship, is still 
carefully cherished by one of her descendants, as is 
also the image of the fair Amelia. 

It is an object lesson which Mr. Vermont has given 
to North Carolina. May this excellent work and 
effective play, based upon local and State history, 
inspire others in North Carolina to work in the same 
unexploited region. May this wonderful history of 
ours, only slowly and painfully emerging even as his- 
tory to the light of common day and unsullied truth, 
become animated with the spirit of the poet and the 
di'amatist, and live again in literature for the in- 
sjiiration an<l edification of those who are to come. 

The tangible results of the McNair Lectures for 
1911-12 now stand before us in printed shape, in a 
little volume issued by the Yale University Press, 
under the title: ''Some Infiuences of Modern Philo- 
sophic Thought," by Arthur Twining Iladley, Presi- 

dent of Yale University. In one of his chapters, the 
author endeavors to make clear the sense in which he 
employs the term "philosophy." He protests against 
the narrowed conception of i)hilosophy, especially as 
held in the United States: tlie holding of philosophy 
to be essentially subject-matter for the professed psy- 
chologist. Although he does not say so, Mr. Hadley 
takes much the same view as does Mr. Chesterton in 
the matter. Every thinking man, be he man of letters 
or man of affairs, more or less consciously arrives at 
some reasoned views of life which may be termed 
philosophy. He desires to "get a system of working 
hypotheses which shall satisfy our instincts without 
conflicting with our experience." In this way, every 
logically reasoning individual arrives at some prac- 
tical form of "philosophy" that "works" for him. 
Mr. Hadley, at the very outset, demonstrates himself 
to be a thorough-paced pragmatist ; and a study of his 
little work shows that he is consistently pragmatistic 

These lectures, viewed from one standpoint, may 
be regarded as a simple, clear and engaging account of 
the main streams in modern thinking — in science, 
politics, ethics, and "poetry" in the wide sense of 
literature. But beside accomplishing this compara- 
tively easy task of historical exposition, the author 
has sought to reveal the vital principles and energies 
underlying and giving rise to these modern types of 
thinking — in his own words, "to show the concrete 
causes which led different groups of students and 
men of affairs to be interested in these successive 
philosophies one after another." 

In science, he points out that the work of the 
scientists — the "natural philosophies" — of a hundred 
years ago was one of enumeration, classification, and 
record. The symbol of that time was the museum 
rather than the laboratory. A study of forms, of 
strata, of elements, meant a description of them, a 
careful record of them arranged in orderliness and 
system. During the last century, the newer ideas 
slowly gained ground. The phenomena and their 
properties continued to be studied; but the scientist 
dug deeper, and sought to disclose the underlying 
causes and forces which gave rise to these phenomena. 
The effort was persistently directed with one aim : to 
formulate the laws governing the behavior of these 
phenomena. The contribution of Darwin was epochal, 
because he explained the life history of the type as 
well as the life history of the individual. And the 
author goes on to point out the far-reaching applica- 
tion of the Darwinian theory of natural selection, not 
only to animal and vegetable physiology but also to 
history, to philosophy, to ethics. Indeed he makes the 



rather remarkable assertion that "the application of 
the Darwinian theory to political history is clearer 
than its application to natural history, and its succes- 
sive steps can he traced far more surely." Even in 
religion, he maintains that the Darwinian theory has 
"reintroduced ideas of law which Comte would have 
characterized as metai)hysical, and has nuido room 
for ideas of God which Comte would have condemned 
as theological." As a pragmatic thinker, he accepts 
the theory that "the right is that which will prevail 
in the long run." 

In the iield of politics, Mr. Hadley aligns himself, 
for the most part, with the views of Burke, Mill and 
Morley, rather than the views of Carlyle and liuskin. 
Carlyle wanted men to follow the hero, but gave no 
directions for finding him; whilst Mill, with prag- 
matic prevision, insisted that in order to find your 
hero, all roads should be left open for his arrival. 
In ethics, we are warned against the rabid individual- 
ism of Nietzsche, his ethical anarchy, as well as the 
rationalistic or sensualist variations of that philoso-' 
phy in Loria or D'Annunzio. Instead, he openly 
espouses the ])hilosophy of James, which makes per^ 
manence the criterion as to whether a thing is right 
or wrong. Without absolute standards, the praguia- 
tist, it is clear, has all the ethical problems of life 
vastly complicated for him. It is not an easy, nor 
in all cases a possible, thing to discover "the direction 
in which the universe is working;" and his analysis 
of the situation may, not inconceivably, be an erron- 
eous one. The most pungent and fertile remark of 
Mr. Hadley's is made in this connection when he 
says: "I would rather take the ground that we hold 
the belief that has preserved our fathers as an intui- 
tion and act on it as an instinct." And he ventures 
to predict that, ten years hence, every thorough-going 
pragmatist will say that what we know we know by 
instinct, and that the use of the intellect is a confes- 
sion of ignorance. 

The least successful of all the chapters is that en- 
titled Recent Poetry. It amounts, in sum, to a hearty 
laudation of the tone of Kipling and the spirit of 
Browning. His indication of the relation between 
Blake and Shaw is sound and acute, without being 
at all original ; but he betrays the superficial view- of 
Shaw in accepting the popular estimate of him as a 
mere protestant against convention, failing to discern 
the deeper implications of such an essentially re- 
ligious and mystical work as Major Barbara. Mr. 
Hadley finds his golden mean of right living between 
entire repression of the individual and entire disre- 
gard of social conventions — ^^an eminently conserva- 
tive position, to be sure. He insists, as a sociologist. 

that the needs both of the individual and of society 
must be realized concurrently. "We must balance 
the claims and demands of diiferent kinds of men 
and women and the value of ditferent kinds of social 
order." ]\Ian must have the fortitude for the strug- 
gle, the needful inspiration to give him courage to 
accept its obligations and its burdens. The finer note 
of these lectures is caught in this paragraph : 

"For after all the lesson which observation teaches 
to the man of brains is the same that instinct has 
taught the gentleman for many ages past: that in any 
conflict which is worthy of the name strength counts 
for less than intelligence, intelligence for less than 
discipline, discipline for less than self-sacrifice; or, to 
put it in positive words, that unswerving devotion is 
the thing that counts for most of all." 

This little book, despite its occasional one-sided- 
ness, the confident assertion of Socialism's failure, 
its somewhat limited if thoroughly consistent method 
of interpretation, is sane, clear, forthright, inspiring 
— an adequate justification of the wisdom of the 
McNair Lectureship. A. H. 


To the Alumni of the University of North Carolina: 

Fellow Alumni: — ^The University has nothing 
but good news for the Alumni at the beginning of her 
119 th year. 

xVt present there are 85 R students registered. This 
exceeds the total for the whole of last year, and is the 
largest registration in the history of the college. Good 
feeling and aggressive interest and co-operation on 
the part of every member of the community to pro- 
mote the welfare of the college has made a notable 
beginning to what we confidently believe will be a 
great year. 

The contribution of the Alumni toward bringing 
this about has already been important. Their splen- 
did work is putting athletics on a sound basis is felt 
not merely in athletics but in all jshases of University 
life. We want all of our Alumni so to extend and 
deepen their interest that they will be thoroughly in- 
formed about the details of the whole of University 
life: what the college is doing, what its standards are, 
what its standing among other colleges is. Then we 
want intelligent criticism and sitggestion. 

Some big things we have started recently are: the 
wider development of the school of Education, the 
high school debating league, high school athletic con- 
tests, an organized faculty lecture bureau, extension 
correspondence courses, and a municipal and legisla- 
tive bureau. Detailed statements of plans for mak- 
ing the University of direct and maximum service to 



all the people of the State will appear in the papers 
aud in the bulletins of the Bureau of Extension. 

University day, October 12th, falls on Sunday. 
The celebration at Chapel Hill will occur on Satur- 
day, the 11th, at eleven o'clock, A. M. ilr. Josephus 
Daniels, Secretary of the Navy, will deliver the ad- 
dress. We hope that every Alumni Association will 
hold a meeting on either the 10th or 11th and have 
every member present. 

Perhaps it would be a good plan to give these 
meetings the nature of conferences on University 
aifairs, for the purpose of making constructive sug- 
gestions to the University authorities, and devising 
ways of helping the University throughout the year. 

Would it not be a feasible plan, as well as a big- 
plan, if the County Alumni Association should meet 
a number of times during the year and make them- 
selves clubs for the discussion of local questions of 
education and social welfare in the county? The 
University men, organized as they are, could work 
wonders in raising the standing of the State in some 
of the national lists of statistics. We hope you will 
give this idea full consideration in your meetings. 
The University's usefulness to the people could be 
greatly increased by the definite, organized co-ojiera- 
tion of our County Associations in working out their 
everyday practical problems. 

But whether this or some better idea meets your ap- 
pi'oval we want the assistance of every Alumnus in 
making this a year of great achievement in every 
field of University endeavor. Start it off with a 
rousing celebration! 

Our two main ideas for the year arc: to bring the 
institution into more symi^athetic touch with the 
Alumni, and to make University influence directly 
felt as far as possible in every home in the State. 

To all of her sons, wherever they are, the Univer- 
sity sends her affectionate greetings and heartiest God- 
speed ! W. S. Beenaed, '00,

tile secretaries of the classes requested to keep the editor 
informiMl. Notes on a few alumni in each city or county

The New York alumni are at present very much inter- 
ested in the proposal to elect Dr. Charles Baskerville Presi- 
dent of the College of the City of New York. Dr. Basker-

Tie Has-Beens anc/The Is- Sows 


' pv"SU5INE5S MEN are of two classes— the "HAS-BEENS" and the "IS NOWS". The "HAS- 

y< BEEN5" are the antiques— the fellow who looks through the business telescope from 

J D) the wrong end, whose vision Is so limited he can't keep out of the way of the street 

cars nor the automobiles; In plain vernacular, he Is asleep at the switch. 

The "IS NOW" Is the real thing: He Is the fellow that "plays ball", the fellow who Is alive 
to the main chance, who knows a good thing when he sees It, who always grasps an oppor- 
tunity the moment It knocks. 


It's the "IS NOWS" that we are making our life's business to serve; the "LIVE WIRES" that 
are doing things. Get in the boat. Be an "15 NOW"; be a "LIVE WIRE". 
Bring us your account. We know your wants and want your business.

Many Elements 
of Strength 

There are many factors in the streng-th of this 
institution, not the least of which is the nature of 
its policy and control. 

Its policy is conservative but at the same time 
progressive. Therefore the condition of the institu- 
tion has always been sound and its growth satisfac- 

There are other elements of soundness 


Among them are: Large capital and undivided 
profits, the large number of safeguards provided by 
the State banking laws, including examinations, re- 
serve requirements, etc.; a board of directors thor- 
oughly conversant with its duties and active in the 
performance of them. 

In addition to all these things, this bank derives 
strength from the strength and confidence of its de- 
positors, many of whom have been customers of the 
institution for years.
