OPINION AND COMMENT 



THE A. AND While flu- residenl ( mittee appoint- 

M. GAME e ,i |, v the alumni have no defence to 

CANCELLED make in regard n> rln- cancellation, of 
tin- A. & M. game, a statemenl is due 
both them and the alumni. It is nol the policy of the 
University to rush into hot print, however strong the 
pull to reply. She take- her stand calmly for what 
she thinks is fight and unmoved by blame lets bitter- 
ness run its own course. 

It is common. knowledge that athletic relations were 
severed with A. *Jc M. College eight years ago on ac- 
counl of the unfairness caused by the difference in 
eligibility rules. This difference kept the tun institu- 
tions apart until last year. For several years there has 
been a strong demand in the State that the two insti- 
tutions gel together. With the change in. athletic 
management coming as a result of the renewed in- 
terest of the alumni lasl spring, the demand for ath- 
letic contests with A. & M. became successful. Even 
then there wen- many people, members of "in- faculty 
and of the A. & M. faculty as well, friends of both 
institutions, who thought such a step not only unwise 
but impracticable. With faith that the two institu- 
tions could gel together on a basis of fair sportsman 
ship, and in a spirit of friendly rivalry, Manager 

McLendon was authorized to have a < Eerence with 

the A. & .M. authorities to this end. 

[nto the isideration of the question went three 

differences in the eligibility requirements of the two 
institutions: the summer ball rule, the paid assisl 
ants rule and the five months rule. A. & M. 
organized league players and permits men to play 
who plaj -in er ball for money above expenses out- 
side an organized league. Carolina bars organized 
and also all others who play an;; o: 
of summer ball for money above expenses. In order 

to meet A. & M. re than half way. ( 'arolina agreed 

to keep h i o < n summer hall rule ami waive A. & M.'s 
advantage "ii this point. A. & XI. permits men to 
play who may be "ii tin- payroll of the college as as- 
sistants, ('arolina. while not denying to athletes 
tin- right of -r|f help open to all students on tin'- dis- 
tinctly self-help campus, forbids them to receive 
money from the University in any salaried cap 
whatever. Out of courtesy to A. & M.'s captain, who 
i- a salaried assistant, ('arolina made a second con- 



cession in the interest of a friendly renewal of rela 
tion, ami waived A. & M.'s second advantage. Then 
the third difference came up for consideration — the 
five months rule. The A. & M. management gave the 
('arolina management to understand that there was 
no difference on this point as A. & M. did not have 
men to violate the five mouths rule. Satisfied as to 
this point, and with such an understanding, tin- ('aro- 
lina management signed the contract which left to 
each college the enforcement of it~ own eligibility 
rules. 

I In- fall comes and with the fall from east and 
west, come men who violate not the letter of the 
contract hut the spirit of the renewal and the under- 
standing on ( Jarolina's part out of which the contract 
grew. It, is not for Carolina to say that A. & M. has 
broken faith, rather -he would say that there has 
been a mutual misunderstanding on a material point. 

At the time of the contract the A. & M. manage 
inenl did not think there would he any occasion for 
the five months rule, ('arolina fell that if the oc- 
casion did arise A. & M. would make the five 
months rule one of her own standards without ref- 
erence t'> a contract. A- s i as it was learned that 

A. tS: Al. had men on the team ineligible under a five 

mli- rule the chairman of tin- athletic committee 

and the graduate manager of athletics made personal 

visits to A. & M. with the hope oi' saving the gi ■ 

on a basis of fairer standards. The A. & M. man 
agenient insisted that these men could play under the 
contract and that they did not regard the statement 
by A. & M. that there was no necessity lor such a rule 
tit A. & M. a- a part of the agreement. The A. & M. 
committee gave as their final answer that they would 
play the game under the letter of the contract or not 
tit all. 

By this time tin- new-paper- of the State had begun 
to publish notices of a disagreement. The student 
bodies of both institutions wi re getting excited over 
it. The ( 'arolina committee felt that to play the game 
under such <-i rciim-iance- would defeat the very pur- 

po e foi which athlet ic reh ns were renewed : to 

create a healthy spirit of sportsmanship and inter- 
rivalry. So the committee w ho have bot ><• 
the brunt of the responsibility with patient sincerity 
decided that it wa

ODD 
THE typical Particular attention is directed to 
NORTH CAROLINA the report made by Acting Presi- 
STUDENT c i en t Graham on University Day 

in which he presented to the State 
a significant statement of the inner life of the Uni- 
versity. As is strikingly set forth in the report, the 
University is not primarily or even secondarily given 
over to the development of athletes. On the contrary, 
the typical University student places his emphasis 
just where he should place it, on study, religion, and 
self-government. These are his outstanding interests 
and the University makes it its chief purpose that the 
typical student shall find full development in these 
fundamentals. 















UNIVERSITY DAY 



Addresses by Acting President Graham, Dr. Henderson, and Secretary-of-the-Navy Daniels Strikingly 
Portray the Spirit of the Students, the University, and North Carolinians Generally 



The one hundivd and twentieth birthday of the 
I'liivi'i'-iiy. made notable by a fine spirit of optimism, 
was splendidly celebrated on Saturday morning, Oc- 
tober 11th, with student body, faculty, alumni, guests 
and visitors entering enthusiastically into every part 
of tho ceh'bi'ation, while from President Yenable and 
seise of the University far and near came ateesagfefc of 
love and go,,d will to speed alma mater on her way of 
splendid achievement. 

The outstanding features of the day, the' formal 
exercises of which began at 10:4-."> in Memorial Hall, 
were the report of Acting President Graham, the ad- 
dressee of Dr. Henderson and Secretary of the Navy 
1 >aniols. and — it may well be recorded here — the pro- 
cession. of students, by far and away tho largest thai 
ever inarched from the Alumi Building to Memorial 
Hall, an-d which, when a— emUed before Mr. Daniels, 
elicited from him: the remark that it. was the finest 
sight he had ever seen, 'i 



dred and twentieth birthday, in the absence of Presi- 
dent Yenable, who has done so much to put the insti- 
tution in the proud position which it now holds, it 
becomes my pleasant duty to make this report. 

"< )n, behalf of the faculty and students, therefore, I 
joyfully render to the State our account of the begin- 
ning of the University's new year, not boastfully, but 
with a happy confidence that the sure foundation of 
sympathetic co-operation, alert, resourceful, responsi- 
ble effort that has indelibly marked the beginning will 
make the year a notable one in the long history of the 
college. 

"The registration has now reached S71. This ex- 
ceeds the total number ever registered in the whole of 
any year by 34. There are over 100 more students 
here now than at any one time before, and this, not- 
withstanding the fact that the requirements for en- 
trance have been rigidly enforced; and the fact that 
this year, for the first time, upperclassmen who failed 
to pass as many as nine hours have not been allowed to 
register. Our registration in the academic depart-

Following the Invocation by Dr. W. ffi L. Smith 
and the -dn-im; of tho University Hymn. Acting Pres- 
ident Graham presented to the people of rhe Stan 
an inspiring report on student life and University 
aetivities. He said in part: 

'•It i- ciKioniarv at ibis annual celebration of the 
rounding of the I ni\er-dty for the president to make 
a brief report lo ihe people of the Slate ,.n internal 
conditions ol the l'\u\ ersity. Today, on our one hun- 



nient exceeds that of any other Southern college ex- 



cept the University of Texas, which is co-educational. 
The University plant has been in active operation the 
whole twelve months of the year with the exception 
of seven weeks, and by the end of the year instruction 
will have been given to over 1,400 students — includ- 
ing the 500 teachers in the summer school. 

"In addition to those taught directly here on the 
campus, the faculty has recently undertaken so to 
extend its activities as to reach as far as possible, 
every home within the State. We hope through our 
recently organized Bureau of Extension to make the

campus co-extensive with the boundaries of the State, 
and while keeping the standards. of University in- 
struction and scholarly research on tin- highest plane. 
to put the University as head of the State's duca 
tional system in warm sensitive touch with every 
problem in North Carolina life, small and great. We 
believe that no civilization ever presented more inter- 
esting questions than does our own at this moment, 
and that the opportunities for intelligent, sympathetic 
leadership were never more varied and inspiring. 
We are undertaking this extension work as a m 
proposal of what we hope will become a tremendous 
force in Stare life, and as an indication of our desire 
to co-operate actively with every force in the upbuild- 
ing of the Stale. 

"But I turn from the interesting thought of the 
extension of the scope of University influence, and ex- 
tension in numbers, to the immediate matter of the 
internal student life of the institution. More im- 
portant than the number of students on a campus is 
the question as to what they are doing there. And if 
one should judge from the moving picture presented 
in the papers from day to day of what college students 
are busy with, he might be inclined to think that the 
whole student world is a greal football field, just as 
he might imagine thai Xew York city has dissolved 
into a gigantic Polo Grounds. Such a superficial 

neiir is not the fault of the -indents or the pa- 
pers; if there be any fault, it is in the reading public. 
•'That our students are interested in football is, o 
course, a fact that we gladly acknowledge. They 
are interested also in every other healthful expression 
of active, vigorous, young manhood. They have all of 
the interests of twenty-year-old twentieth century 
Americans. Football happens to be a powerful one 
of these; bul it is emphatically not the main interest 
of the University of North Carolina student. He is 
much more aggressive, and his success is far gn 
in activities other than athletics. Our athletic i% 
is sadly eloquent testimony thai our students do not 
play as aggressively as they work, or as they .-peak, 
when pur in competition with their sister colleg , 
"Those of ns who know North Carolina students 

that far from playing too much, they do not, 

a- a rule, play enough. Sport is not their ii 1. and 

the reason is clear enough: they come from an envir- 
onment of which the spirit of play ha- formed a negli- 
gi'l le part. Their attitud oward >r th seri 

on-ly min. 1,-d temper of North Carolina a- it em- 
erges from its long battle for economic freedom. They 
come from families uol quite able to -end them • 
lege. They are conscious of the fad that it 
college as the resull of loving e. They 

know the values of self-sacrifice, not merely a- a \i- 
ion revealed to them in an in ; hut 

i he stern fact of their own -i c get here 

and -lav here. "' ggle with all it- rich and 

patient compi ha- left it- heavy shadow on 

the life of OUT -indent group. 



"Although it is somewhat unfortunate that v. 

more of the spiril of play than we do have, 
I rejoice that the main interest of our students i- pre- 
cisely where it should he: in their college work. Any 
other condition would lie intolerable in the University 
of a democratic state. Our attendance records are 
carefully kept, and Mr. Stacy and T ha ipared 

re 'ds a sort of thermometer of student 3eri 

ousness — with those of other high grade institutions 
wherever available, and the comparisons have i 
shown us at a disadvantage. 

" This record of serious attention to required duties 
i- borne out by the three outstanding voluntary ac- 
tivities in the life of the average North Carolina stu- 
dent that show his true nature and genius. They are 
his interests in debating, in religion, and in self- 
government. 

"The two literary societies have initiated this year 
about lo<> new members. They have a joint member- 
ship of about four hundred. [ doubt if there is an 
institution in the country where debating societii 
vigorous and successful are maintained year after 
year, by voluntary membership and under entirely 
independent student control. The record of success 
that they have steadily maintained through ii 
years of intercollegiate debating i- higher testimony 
than I can pay to the nature of the work of the so- 
cieties. They have won 25 out of 85 intercollegiate 
debates with colleges of the highest rank. They have 
won eleven of the last twelve. The highesl college 
■ nor in the eyes of the typical University student is 
to represent the college in an intercollegiate debate. 

"Going to church is as voluntary as the playing of 
game-, and it is apparently a vast deal more popular. 
The four churches of the town have Iiihle class* - i

righteousness high and compelling, lias had its re- 
verses, and it is likely to have them in the future; 
but the actual result achieved is a real and noble 
triumph ; a community that governs itself so well ami 
has established so fixedly high standards of personal 
conduct that its leaders do not have to occupy them- 
selves with repressive and punitive legislation, but are 
left to lead in constructive development and co- 
operative progress. 

"This state of mind on the campus, the product of 
the slow, but steady progress of many years, is the 
aim of all democratic government, and is the only 
atmosphere in which education can achieve those cre- 
ative results and produce those finer issues that are 
its supreme justification in the life of men. It is the 
altitude that will make the year mi which we have 
so fairly entered realize the hopes and prayers of the 
people of North Carolina for the college that they 
love." 

DE. HENDERSON 

Declaring that under its scheme of educational 
extension now offered to the State, the University 
was preparing to go forth, in response to the needs of 
a new age, to mingle with the people and to touch 
with a transforming hand their life, Dr. Henderson, 
in speaking of "The University in the Nation," went 
further and indicated the kind of service the Uni- 
versity was rendering to the nation. 

"Such an educational service," he said, "bids fair 
to become, not local, but national in its significance. 
In a true sense it is described as university extension; 
for it is but an extension id' the truly national ser- 
vice to education already abundantly rendered by this 
institution, and its alumni. Battle, Alderman, Ay- 
cock, Mclver, Joyner, and their younger compeer-. 
Graham, Johnston, Home — and many other names 
familiar to us all. have rendered, and are now render- 
ing incomparable service in the inculcation of the 
national ideals and the moulding of national char- 
acter. 

"In that supreme branch of service to which all 
higher education is ultimately dedicated — the ser- 
vice to truth — this university is now accomplishing 
work of national calibre and international range. In 
pure science, in economics, in medicine, in all the 
branches of a sound and varied learning, the scholars 
of this institution by their independent researches, 
their creative contributions, touch today, as never be- 
fore in our history, the national consciousness, and 
serve that jealous mistress, truth, with a fidelity 
which has won the approbation of American and even 
of world-scholarsh ip." 

• NORTH CAKOLIXA SPIRIT 

Secretary of the Navy Daniels, who was given an 
ovation by the audience when presented by Acting 
President Graham as "a North Carolinian who has 



loved his State with a tender, passionate devotion," 
spoke on the "North Carolina Spirit." 

This he found to be different from that of any 
other State with which be had come in contact. He 
discussed three of its leading characteristics: religion, 
naturalness, and independence. Religion he declared 
to be a more potent factor in North Carolina than in 
any other State in the Union and he eulogized the 
Scotch-Irish ami German strains which were respon- 
sible for it. 

In speaking of the second quality — naturalness — 
Mr. Daniels said it was the most prominent of the 
three. The true North /Carolinian had no liking for 
frills. He barred them from every part of his life, 
politics, religion, government, and even bis clothes. 
"It took all the love for the University I had," Mr. 
Daniels humorously declared, "for me to forgive the 
faculty for wearing caps and gowns" at University 
functions. 

Independence was to be seen all through the 
history of the State and was typically exemplified 
in the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. 
In seeking a cause for these qualities. Air. Daniels 
found that theyd did not arise out of the fact that in 
its early life the State was isolated from the centers 
of progress, but out of the innate strength of the 
people and of the straightforward power wrapped up 
in the very warp ami woof of the true North Caro- 
linian. The three great North Carolinians in whom 
these characteristics were most perfectly incarnated 
were Macon. Vance, and Aycock. 

At the conclusion of the address Acting Dean 
Stacy read, while the audience stood, the list of the 
alumni who had died since last University Day. The 
quartette sang "Integer Vitse," and the benediction 
was pronounced by Rev. Homer Starr. In the after- 
noon from four to six Acting President and Mrs. 
Graham gave Secretary Daniels, the faculty, and 
visitors a delightful reception. 



Carl Winter's Universitatsbuchhandlung, Heidel- 
berg, issued in October, a book by Dr. John Manning 
Booker, associate professor of English in the Uni- 
versity, that will prove of inestimable value to stu- 
dents of the early period of English literature. The 
title of Dr. Booker's publication is A Middle English 
Bibliography. Under the head of every manuscript 
and monument of the 12, 13 and 14 centuries, ex- 
clusive of the works of Wycliff, Gower, Chaucer, and 
the documents in the London dialect, are listed the 
opinions of all the scholars, who have discussed these 
matters, upon the date, dialect, and source of these 
manuscripts and monuments.

MID-SEASON FOOTBALL 

In Five Hard Struggles the 'Varsity Shows Fine Fighting Grit 



CAROLINA 7, DAVIDSON 

Carolina defeated Davidson October the eleventh 
in Greensboro by the score of 7 to 0. The line did 
not exhibit great strength, the backfield failed to 
show class, and the beam was poorly generaled. An 
exchange of punts put Carolina in a threatening po- 
sition at the end of the third quarter. From this 
point of advantage in the fourth quarter a forward 
pass to Tayloe and a plunge by Fuller put the ball 
across the line. Tandy kicked goal. The all-round 
aggressive play .it' lianisey and the punting of F i - 
were the redeeming points of Carolina's play.

NORTH CAROLINA 13, SOUTH CAROLINA 3 

The terrific Backfield of Heyward and Von Xol- 
nitz failed to materialize in the Palmetto-Tar Heel 
affray on the South Carolina gridiron October the 
eighteenth, and North Carolina won, 13 to 3. Home- 
wood and Huske took the spectacular out of the end 
dashes and Ramsey and Tandy were everywh ire 
blocking kicks or breaking up embryonic plays. In 
the first quarter Ramsey blocked Von Kolnitz' punt 
and the Carolina hack- in several rushes put the ball 
in Btriking distance for Lord's touchdown. The hail 
ended without additional scoring. In the third quar- 
ter Ramsey again blocked a kick. Reid, Tayloe, and 

Fuller plunged up the field for the second ' 

down. South Carolina's 3Core wa- made possible 
when Tayloe's fumble put the ball in position 
Von Kolnitz' kick from placement.

The high cost of living is a tender thing compared 
to the high price of fumbles. As the uel value of 
fumbles went up Carolina went down before V. P. 1. 
in Winston, October the twenty-fifth in a way that 
would break your heart. Pick and Legge turned 
Carolina's fumbles into V. P. I.'s touchdowns. Fuller 
fumbled, Tayloe fumbled, Allen fumbled and Reid 
fumbled. Against the disheartening power of these 
fumbles the Carolina team girded up it- loins in the 
fourth quarter to snatch victory out of the very jaws 
of fumbles. Down the field they ploughed and 
charged. Fuller goes over the goal-line— fumbles 
Inn Ramsey recovered and saved the touchdown which 
had been made right valiantly. With their common 
will set for another score Carolina wen 1 fiercely across 
the field again. Bui time was called before thej 
could overcome the loss incident to V. I'. I.'s punt. 

Tayloe and Tandy played a greal game for Caro- 
lina. Koiisi punted strongly in the tare of the wind.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



GEORGIA 19, CAROLINA 6 

Georgia found Carolina a more stubborn fighter 
than tbe score indicates in the game November the 
first in Athens, Georgia. It was an affair of too 
much McWhorter who is considered the greatest in- 
dividual football player in the lower South. The 
muchness of Tayloe did not have its chance until tbe 
last quarter and Carolina found out too late that it 
had been a case of not enough Tayloe. 

As both teams were weak on defence and strong 
on offence Carolina made a strategic mistake in de- 
liberately playing defence in the first half. In the 
last quarter Carolina kept Georgia fighting closely 
under the goal posts. Alien aggressively marshalled 
Tayloe, Fuller, and E. Burnett and sent them ham- 
mering through the Georgia defence. With the ball 
cm the four yard line, second down, Burnett fumbled 
and Georgia punted out of danger. Again Carolina 
marched down the field with Tayloe to the fore and 
Allen went across for a touchdown. Time put a stop 
to another chance.

On a field drenched with rain and churned to mud, 
Carolina, out-weighed nine pounds to the man, dog- 
gedly lost to Washington and Lee at Lynchburg on 
November Sth. After two touchdowns for Washing- 
ton and Lee, Carolina rallied splendidly and was on 
her opponents' 1 1-yard line and still going strongly 
when the game was stopped on account of darkness 
with five minutes still to play. Carolina protested 
without avail. 

Positions were played by Carolina men a- follows: 
Huske, lefl end; Ramsey, left tackle; Cowell, left 
guard; Tandy, center; Foust, right guard; Aber

ON TO RICHMOND 

The annual football game between Carolina and 
Virginia on November 27th, will be played on the 
New Broad Sued Park. The New Park has a seat- 
ing capacity of 10,000 and is said to be a much better 
gridiron than the old park. 

Manager Drew and Graduate Manager McLendon 
will secure reserved seat tickets for the North Caro- 
lina bleachers and will have them on sale at least ten 
days before the game. Alumni and others wishing 
tickets in the North Carolina bleachers should place 
their orders with Manager Frank Drew or Graduate 
Manager L. P. McLendon so that the tickets can he 
secured before reaching Kichmond. 

The reserved seat tickets will be placed on 
general sale in Kichmond and it will be hard for the 
Carolina alumni and friends to secure tickets iu the 
Carolina bleachers unless they are purchased before 
reaching Richmond. It is hoped that all the North 
Carolina people will secure their tickets to the Caro- 
lina bleachers so that they can all he together. The 
reserved seats will be sold for $1.50 each. No tickets 
will be mailed unless the letter is accompanied by a 
check or the money. 

It is not definitely decided where the Carolina head- 
quarters will be in Richmond but will probably be at 
the Richmond Hotel as last year. Tbe new Murphy 
Hotel has put in a bid for the headquarters. Both 
of these hotels are located near the center of the city 
and will be convenient to the park and other places of 
interest. 



OTHER ATHLETIC NOTES 

It is a noteworthy fact that there are in the student 
body four men who have shown real class in profes- 
sional baseball circles. Raymond Lee, '11, now a 
member of the second year law class, was premier 
pitcher of the Carolina league last season. J. A. 
Rousseau, second year law student, pitched remark- 
able ball for Belmont College, besting the Charlotte 
leaguers. Tn the summer season he was a king among 
the bush leagues. Kluttz was not only a football sen- 
sation but was also the speed demon of the Eastern 
Carolina circuit several seasons ago. "Shag" Thomp- 
son, a member of the Junior class, was the first choice

for left field on the All-State League team. Thomp- 
son is now numbered in the List of Connie Mack's 
precious possessions. Of course, under Carolina's 
requirements, these men are all ineligible for the 
'Varsity. It is a fine thing to see these splendid 
athletes on the jump first of all for an education at a 
centre where their bona fide-ness of itself does not 
admit them to representation on the athletic teams. 

Systems may come and go, coaches may rise and 
fall, but it is the purpose of this University, un- 
manacled by failures here and there, to have such 
eligibility rule- and such amateur spirit as will keep 
the channels of athletic opportunity open for the de- 
velopment of the general run of men natural to the 
life of the campus.

Eight of the 'Varsity players are men who either 
were on the 'Varsity last year or were members of the 
scrub and class teams. 

In the first game of the interclass series the Juniors 

defated the Seniors in a highly exciting game by the 
score of !> to 7. The playing of Hatcher, Knowles, 
and Darden featured for the Seniors; and Nance, 
Woolcott, and Fitzgerald for the Juniors. 

With the score to against them the Raleigh 
High School defeated the Freshmen in the lasl two 
seconds of play. MacDonald got away with a for-

Raleigh kicked goal, making the -core 7 to 6.

twenty points.

THE COUNTY CLUBS BEGIN SURVEYS 

Prof. E. C. Branson Outlines Plan of "Know Your County" Investigations 



On October 2nd, Prof. E. C. Branson, of the State 
Normal School of Athens, Ga., as the guest of the 
.Bureau of Extension of the University of North 
Carolina, addressed the students on what has 
recently become known as "The Georgia Club." 
his address on that evening being an introduction to 
a scries of round table talks which he conducted for 
four days with the < iounty Clubs of the University. 

The theme which Prof. Branson constantly stressed 
was the supreme importance of University students 
knowing the economic and social conditions of their 
home counties and home State, with a view to de- 
voting themselves to their amelioration and improve- 
ment. 

Taking the group of students composing the John- 
ston County Club, Prof. Branson made a tentative 
economic survey of the county, and indicated the 
method by which the students could bring it to com- 
pletion. In making the outline he made use of census 
bulletins on population, agriculture, manufacturing, 
religious organizations; educational reports from the 
State High School Inspector and Superintendent of 
Public Instruction; financial reports from the State 
Auditor, Treasurer, and Corporation Commission ; 
bulletins from the State Boards of Health and Agri- 
culture; soil surveys and maps from the State and Na- 
tional Geological Surveys, and such other statistical 
and descriptive material as had been assembled by the 
Library fur this special purpose. 

At the end of the four day's work the Johnston 
County survey was well under way, the members of 
the various clubs had observed the method of investi- 
gation, and several members of the faculty who are 
North Carolinians, had undertaken to aid the students 
from their counties in the making of local studies. 

The investigations started, if the plans of Profes- 
sor Branson are followed, will continue well on 
through the year. In addition to the students at the 
University, resident members of the clubs at home 
will be engaged in the work. After the surveys have 
been roughly completed they will be checked up by the 
resident members of the club and the members of the 
faculty directing the investigations. When they are 
in final form they will be given to the local county 
paper for publication. There they will appear in 
plain, simple narrative so that they may carry in- 
formation to every inhabitant of the county. 

The importance of the work is immediately ap- 
parent. If properly carried out it will give an ac 
curate survey of conditions in North Carolina on 



which methods of procedure in agriculture, in social 
betterment work, and in general State legislation can 
be safely based. In addition to that it will send back 
to the counties of North Carolina future citizens who 
will know local conditions first hand, and who, on ac- 
count of their knowledge and aroused pride and inter- 
est, will devote themselves to the constructive up- 
building of their home communities. 



FURTHER EXTENSION OF THE CAMPUS 

"Extension Lectures fur North Carolina Com- 
munities," and "Correspondence Courses" are the 
titles of Extension Bulletins 3 and 4 which have just 
been mailed in large editions throughout the State. 
In issuing these publications the University shows 
clearly that it i^ seriously in earnest in its efforts to 
carry its benefits to every section of the State and 
gives in detail the plan which it will follow in doing 
this. 

One hundred lectures are offered by twenty-three 
members of the faculty. They cover a wide range of 
subjects and are suited to the varying needs of the 
State. The only cost involved is that the travel- 
ing expenses of the lecturers are to be met by the or- 
ganization for which the lectures are made. 

Correspondence courses in the following subjects 
are ottered to anyone in. the State: Economics, Edu- 
cation, English, German, History. Latin. Mathe- 
matics, and Rural School Development. 

The work of the ( iorrespondence Division will be 
under the immediate direction of the School of Edu- 
cation, with Dean M. ( '. S. Noble as Director; and 
the individual courses will be given by the following 
members of the faculty : Economics, Professor Paper ; 
Education, Professors Noble and Williams; English, 
Professors Graham and Koyster and Mr. Sneath ; 
German, Professor Toy; History, Professor Hamil- 
ton; Latin, Professor Howe; Mathematics, Profes- 
sors Noble and Henderson. 

A fee of $2.00 per course will be charged. Each 
course will consist of 32 weeks' work which for con- 
venience may be divided into half courses. 



At the business meeting of the Philological Club 
in October the following officers were elected: Dr. 
George Eowe, prsident; Dr. O. P. Khyne, vice-presi- 
dent; Mr. E. F. Parker, secretary and treasurer; and 
Drs. J. F. Royster, L. B. Wilson, and W. M. Dey, 
editors of Studies in Philology.

MAJOR E. J. HALE, MINISTER TO COSTA RICA 

Jit naming Major Edward Joseph Hale, of Fay- 
etteville, X. ( '.. as minister to Costa Rica, President 
Wilson bestowed an honor most worthily, and indi- 
rectly paid a highly appreciated compliment to the 
University; for Major Hale has demonstrated 
through splendid service to the State and nation his 




rare fitness for the posl to which has has I o assigned 

and in 1860 was class Valedictorian at the Univer- 
sity. In 1910 he received the additional honor of the 
LL. I), from his alma mater. 

Major Hale's service to North Carolina has been 
of the significantly constructive order. As editor of 
the Fayetteville Observer he has profoundly influ- 
enced the thinking of the ' 'ape Fear 3ection ; and as a 
strong, forward-looking lead< r he has been a central 
figure in proposing and bringing aboul the canaliza- 
tion of the Cape Fear River from Wilmington to 
Fayetteville. The development of an inland water- 
ways system affecting the entire tidewater section of 
the Stale has long been a dream of his which he has 
helped make come I rue. 

In State ami national politics Major Hale"- pan 
has been significant. In. L884, the year of Che firsl 
great Democratic victory, he was the author of the 
tariff plank in the North Carolina I ><• ;ratic plat- 
form, in l 'Vn; lie was chairman of the State 1 1 
cratic platform committee, and since L884 he has 
live times been a delegate-at-large from North < in 
lina to national Democratic conventions. 

As a representative of the national government in 
the diplomatic field, Major Hale first saw service in 
1885 at which time he was sent by President Cleve- 



land to Manchester, England, as Consul. In L893 
lie was offered the Mission to Turkey, which he de- 
clined. Later he was recommended '<•; Secretary of 
State Gresham as Minister to Russia, but did nol 
allow liis name to be considered. 

On Friday night, Augusl Lst, L913, the citizens of 
Fayetteville tendered their honored fellow townsman 
a farewell banquet at which Major John Underwood, 
Senator (,). K. Nimocks, and Chief Justice Waller 
Clark made felicitious speeches. Secretary of State 
Bryan, a life-long friend of Major Hale's and an in- 
vited guest, was detained in Washington on accounl 
of complications in the Mexican situation. 



LEONARD CHARLES VAN NOPPEN

Guilford College, X. C, and B. Lift, at the Univer-

in 1894. He studied Dutch literature in Holland in 
L895 and L896, during which time he made a trans- 
lation of Vondel's "Lucifer" into English verse in 
the meters of the original. In 1898 the "Lucifer" 
was published and received much notice, as nol only 
the first English version of Vondel, but as the firsl

CLIPPINGS FROM THE PRESS 



A MOVE FULL OF PROMISE 

The whole State has a particular interest in a part 
of the address which Acting President E. K. Graham, 
of the University, made on the occasion of the cele- 
bration of University Day Saturday at the University 
on the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of the 
beginning of that institution. We refer to that por- 
tion of his remarks which dealt with the recently in- 
augurated University extension work. 

University extension work will be welcomed by the 
people of the State. It will be good for the people 
and good for the University. Education is a vital 
need, but it is impossible for a large element of the 
population to get to the customary sources of educa- 
tion. This element has not gone, of course, without 
enlightening and uplifting influences. It has had 
the press and the pulpit and the example and influ- 
ence and stimulation of educated men in the com- 
munity and these have all been powerful factors in 
the elevation and uplifting of the people. But the 
University has been to a large proportion of the peo- 
ple something apart except for its indirect influence. 
Now it is to be brought into direct touch with the peo- 
ple at large. Instead of the people having to go to 



the University for inspiration and incentive that it 
affords, it will come to those who can't go to it. 

The whole State is interested in the new departure 
at the University and is looking forward to a happier 
and a more efficient population as a result of its in- 
auguration. Every worthy cause in the State, every 
movement for a stronger, better commonwealth and 
for a population more able to cope with and conquer 
the problems of the day as they shall arise will be 
aided and strengthened by the extension work of the 
University. — News and Observer, October 12. 



"THE WHITEST PLACE" 



"It's the 'whitest' place on earth !" 

That is the high praise bestowed on the University 
of North Carolina by Dr. Edwin Minis, of Vander- 
bilt University in a speech in Charlotte on Saturday 



night. 



Dr. Minis is greatly missed in North Carolina. 
A professor at Trinity College for many years, and 
at the University for two years, he gave abundantly 
of his rare enthusiasm and scholarship to every cause 
of education, culture and religion in the State. The 
spirit of a community is after all the deepest thing 
about it, and the University may well be proud of 
such a tribute from such a source. "It is one of the 
joys of my life,'" said Dr. Minis, "to have lived in an 
atmosphere such as that at Chapel Hill for two 
years." — Xeas and Observer, October 14. 



A UNIVERSITY FOR THE PEOPLE 

( hie of the most auspicious events in connection 
with the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of 
the University of North Carolina is the announce- 
ment of plans with regard to the extension work, the 
ultimate aim of which is to make this institution to 
a greater and greater extent the people's university, 
and not the university of a fortunate few. — Greens- 
boro Daily News, October 14. 



THE COLLEGE LITERARY SOCIETY 

If the college literary society everywhere occupied 
the important place in student life that it does at 
Chapel Hill, the educated youth of the country would 
he much better fitted for the duties of citizenship 
than they are now. 

The literary society is too valuable an auxiliary 
of the college to lie allowed to decay. It has been the 
only established American school of training in the 
line art of public speaking. It has endowed thousands 
with the gift of public speech that made them in pri-

vate capacity forces for the public good. It has been 
the practical laboratory for the science of reasoning. 

Men like Secretary of Stan- Bryan and President 
Wilson are deeply indebted to the college literary so- 
cieties in which they first discussed public issues, and 
they acknowledge the obligation gladly. — Richmond 
Times-Dispatch, October 14. 



SHOULD BE FREELY USED 

There is one phase of educational work in North 
( 'arolina which should be highly commended and free 
ly used. It is the Bureau of Extension of the State 
University. The Municipal and Legislative Refer- 
ence Division of this work is of special interest in 
view of the present session of the General Assembly. 

Until a legislative reference library shall be estab- 
lished in connection with the General Assembly, as 
lias been done in a number of States, the extension 
work of the University will, to a great extent, supply 
the need ; and if developed sufficiently, may avoid the 
establishment of a separate department. — State Jour- 
nal, October 10. 



THE JOHNSTON COUNTY CLUB 

The twenty-three young men in the Johnston 
( lounty < 'lull furnished far more inspiration for their 
leader than, he conveyed to them during the four days 
'if his work alongside them. 

Their studies and final report upon the economic 
and social life of their enmity will carry them well 
through the year. 

They are pioneers in this work in North Carolina. 
They are blazing a trail, and they will do it with 
distinguished credit to themselves, and great benefit 
to their home county in. the end. — E. C. Bransox 
in the Home "nil Farmstead. October 19.

A STRENUOUS DAY 



Dr. W. D. Weatherford, of the International Com- 
mittee of the Y. M. C. A. spent a strenuous day in 
Chapel Hill October the sixth. At the chapel period 
he made a forceful address on "Heroism in .Men." 
Immediately after Chapel he met with Chairman H. 
S. Willis and his committee of eight workers in three 
negro Sunday schools and the weekday night school. 
After dinner he went over the rural work with Ful- 
ler'- eighteen neighborhood worker-. At three-thirty 
the advisory board met with Dr. Weatherford in an 
interested discussion of several policies in the man- 
agement of the Association. A half an hour before 
supper House's committee on the Barnett fund had a 
helpful conference with him. 

At eight o'clock Dr. Weatherford delivered a very 
fo i eful address to the student body on the -ocial and 
ii mic conditions of China, lie had recently trav- 
elled through tin- new republic in the interest of the 
.-indent movemenl and hi- message was vigorously 
alive with the religiousneeds of the millions there. The 
student- were especially interested in his references 
to their representative in China, Eugene E. Barnett, 
who is Secretary of the Y. M. < '. A. in the great stu- 
dent centre at Eangchow, China. The studenl body, 
in response t" a room-to-room canvas subscribed mar 
ly four hundred dollars to the supporl of Barnetl this

and occupation, marriages, deaths, meetings, achievements, 
etc., ''Hi also to trace alumni of whom the University and 
their classmates have no record since their leaving college, 
thus bringing the class histories up to date. Therefore items

ASHEVILLE 

The annual meeting of the Buncombe County Alumni As- 
sociation of the University of North Carolina was held the 
afternoon of the eleventh at the office of Bourne, Parker and 
Morrison, and was largely attended. President J. C. Martin 
presided, and Secretary I,. M. Bourne read letters from T. G. 
Trenchard, head coach at the University, suggesting methods 
whereby the local association can be of great help to those in 
charge of athletics at the University. A determination to do 
everything in their power along this line was reflected in the 
expressions of the members. 

A committee to solicit subscriptions was appointed, com- 
posed of I.. M. Bourne, chairman: Robert R. Reynolds, ami 
J. E. Swain. 

It was decided not to assess any dues, but to trust to vol- 
untary contributions to keep the local association going finan- 
cially. 

Judge J. I). Murphy was delegated in send a telegram of 
greetings ami congratulations on behalf of the association. 
The eleventh was celebrated as "University Day," becau 1 ol 
the fact October 12, which is tin regular festival, falls mi 
Sunday this year. 

A committee composed of R. R. Reynolds, Marcus. Edwin, 
and Allen T. Morrison, was appointed to arrange fur a ban- 
quet on behalf of the local association, which will be held 
between now and Januarj 1. The committee will sec what 
can be done along othei Hi:' to increasi thi interi I among 
the alumni. 

Julius C. Martin was re-elected president for the coming 
year and I.. M. Bourne was again chosen secretary. 



CHARLOTTE 

A message which was brimming over with enthusiasm anil 
hope was delivered last night to the Mecklenburg County \s 
sociation of Alumni of the University of North Carolina by 
Dr. Charles Staples Mangum. guest of honor at the annual 
University Day banquet. The affair was given on the top 
floor of the Piedmont building and was attended by 42 per 
sons. President Brent Skinner Drane was toast master. Dr. 
Edwin Mints, of the faculty of Vanderbilt University, was 
also a guest of honor, and spoke briefly, but happily, before 
leaving t., fill his lecture engagement at Hanna Hall. The 
banquet began at 7:30 ami lasted until 11. 

Dr. Mangum in his speech commented on the fact that out 
of a membership of over 200 in Mecklenburg only 42 alumni 
were present. "I tell you frankly that you do not know any- 
thing at all about what is going on down at Chapel Hill." 
he said. "The only tiling you know about is athletics, and the 
reason is that that is the only thing you have taken the 
trouble to inform yourselves about. To us, who are down 
there on the ground doing the work athletics is a minor 
matter. We know that the University stands for greater and 
grander things. Yet to you on the outside it looks the biggest." 

Doctor Mangum declared that the alumni ought to manifest 
the same interest in other phases of the institution's life that 
they have shown in athletics. They have "butted into" the 
latter and assumed charge, found no opposition and would 
be received in the same spirit in other departments. The one 
thing that the faculty insisted on retaining is the power to say 
who shall and shall not represent the University on its ath- 
letic teams. "We have got a system of rules based on the high- 
est ethical principles, and we are going to enforce them 
whether you like it or not," said Doctor Mangum. "We'd 
rather be defeated while fighting for principle than to win 
games and have to apologize for the maimer in which we 
won them." 

While on the subject of athletics Doctor Mangum warned 
his hearers not to expect a winning team this year, but said 
the foundation was being laid as it has never been laid before 
for winning teams hereafter. "There are two ways in which 
i" build up a team." he said "One is to scour around and beat 
the bushes to secure stars from one place or another, win. 
have played the game at other colleges far distant, and in thai 
way get a team that will wipe up everything. We are op- 
posed to any such system. The material is right here in North 
Carolina and we prop. is, ■ to develop it. We don'1 want men 
to come in from other places and win our games for us. We 
may not win this year; I'd advise you to keep your mom > in 
y<uir pocket-,." 

Doctor Mangum declared that tin growth of the University 
aliing all lines is astounding and incomprehensible even to 
those who are "on the job" all tin- time. It is growing in 
number of students, in the height of its standards, the 
strength of its influence. It is getting to be really a Univer- 
sity in 111. .re than name." * * * 

Doctor Mints, who spoki next, paid an eloquent tribute to 

iln- University. "I'll say tliis for it." he said, "it's the whitest 

plao "ii .-an!]." lie said that frequently when a man leaves 

an institution th, e is a feel on n. ss" I. maid him mi 

the part of the college, Inn declared thai tin- attitude of the 
faculty, students and alumni of the University toward him. 
as often manifested, "has been one of the lines! revelations 

of human nature I ha n." He said it was one of the 

toys of his life that lie should have lived for two years in 



40 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



such an atmosphere as that at Chapel Hill. "There is no good 
tiling that I do not covet for the University." He said the 
manner in which members and friends of the institution 
rallied at last year's crisis was an exhibition of grit and conse- 
cration rarely equalled. "A university that can rise to an 
emergency like that is an institution that has a future. You 
cannot dream what the University of North Carolina will be 
oven 25 years hence." 

. Mr. Paul C. Whitlock, secretary of the Association, gave 
a review of its work during the past year — a review which 
was humorous by reason of the paucity of material. 

Mr. George Stephens of the class of 1896, spoke on "The 
Work of the General Association of the Alumni and the New- 
Athletic Coaching System." He told of the progress that has 
been made by the establishing of the alumni system of coach- 
ing, but added that a winning team should not be expected 
until 1915. at the end of the three-year contract with Coach 
Trenchard. Mr. Stephens said that not a dollar of the money 
raised by the alumni was being spent in any way not in ac- 
cord with the highest ethical principles as applied to pure 
athletics. 

Mr. Harold S. Hall, who has seen two games, told "How the 
Football Team Looks in Action This Fall." He predicted a 
winning team in 1914 and said that the team even this fall 
"looks good" and is one that alumni can be proud of. 

Mr. 0. W. Tillett, Jr., gave a toast "To the College of Lib- 
eral Arts," and read the address of Acting President Graham. 
Mr. Thaddeus A. Adams spoke on "The School of Law," and 
Mr. Marsh Stewart, a graduate, discussed "The School of 
Pharmacy." Messrs. W. A. Reynolds and Col. W. R. Henry 
and J. E. Little gave reminiscences. All these speeches were 
interesting. 

Before adjournment, officers were elected as follows: Pres- 
ident, Mr. C. W. Tillett, Jr.; vice-president, Mr. P. C. Whit- 
lock; secretary-treasurer, Mr. N. R. Graham.— Charlotte Ob- 
server. 



CHERRYVILLE 

On October 11, the Gaston County Alumni of the University 
held a meeting in Cherryville in the office of H. A. Toms, 
Esq., and organized into an association. The following alumni 
were present : Rev. W. T. Usry, Dr. M. E. Hoffman, H. C. 
Sisk. D. E. Deland, J. C. Nixon, Ivy Willis, J. II. Workman, 
C. L. Eaker. H. A. Jonas. 

Rev. W. T. Usry was elected chairman, and Dr. M. E. Hoff- 
man, secretary. After the business meeting an hour of social 
pleasure followed ever a good supper and reminiscences of 
college days. 



NEW YORK 



About thirty of the University Alumni in New York City 
gathered at Healy's, Broadway and 66th Street, on Saturday 
night, October 11th, for the annual University Day celebra- 
tion. It was by far the gayest and altogether the most suc- 
cessful meeting ever field by the New York Association. The 
joyful beefsteak dinner at Reisenweber's in 1911 had pointed 
the way to the escape from formality and boredom — which 
seem to be inseparable from the ordinary kind of dinner in 
the metropolis — and A. Marvin Carr, Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Arrangements, sought to duplicate the event of two 
years ago. But this year's was even better because of the 
larger attendance. 



Upon arrival the Alumni found themselves in a rustic-look- 
ing room, the walls of which were formed by logs with the 
bark still on them. In one corner was a piano which was 
kept merrily at work by a skilful and tireless performer, who 
with the accompanying violinist, had been discovered by Don 
Richardson, the musical expert of the Association. To each 
diner was supplied a paper cap of many colors and fantastic 
design — a fez, or a turban, or an inverted man of war, or an 
aeroplane, or something else equally striking. A calico apron, 
of the very sort that a Chapel Hill negro cook might wear — 
if she wore any at all — completed the costume. And the 
apron was needed, for most of the eating was done with tin- 
fingers. Healy's prize beefsteak cook did his job over a fire 
on one side of the room, and the waiters circulated industri- 
ously with the slices of juicy steak laid on toast. The pre- 
liminary course of oysters served as an appetizer, and after 
that the alumni ate steak and more steak, until they could 
eat no more. Then they were ready for the talk. 

A number of younger men, who are studying at Columbia, 
were present. Judge Augustus Van Wyck, who presided, 
taking notice of the fact that many newcomers were on hand, 
introduced the novelty of calling on each and every alumnus 
to rise and state his name, history in brief, occupation and 
present place of residence. This, said the Judge, would make 
everybody acquainted with everybody else. The resulting 
autobiographies, delivered in varying fashions and each re- 
flecting personality of the subject, brought forth much good 
natured and hilarious banter. The thirty men, with their 
queer garb, were a lot of college boys again, forgetful of 
everything save the fun and the good-fellowship of the mo- 
ment — and the pleasing consciousness of being well fed. 

The Association was honored by the unexpected presence 
of General Julian S. Carr, who came as the guest of his son 
Marvin, and who was seated on Judge Van Wyck's right. 
Another visitor from "down home" was there too in the per- 
son of Ex-State Senator Albert S. Cox, who was in the city 
as a deputy to the Episcopal Convention. Mr. Cox found it 
difficult to convince some of the alumni that he did not come 
to New York as a delegate to the World's Series. 

There was no speech-making. Brief talks were made by the 
Judge and Dr. Charles Baskerville. Dr. Baskerville urged that 
instead of merely having a dinner every year, the Association 
should develop a more business-like organization, and this 
received the approval of the company. Accordingly, a com- 
mittee, consisting of Dr. Baskerville. A. Marvin Carr, Dr. 
Henry C. Cowles, Jr., Louis Graves, and Alfred W. Hay- 
wood, Jr., was appointed to recommend a plan for action. 
It was suggested that the plan include provision for sub- 
scription to The Alumni Review on a club basis, the annual 
dues including a subscription to The Review. 

Present were Judge Van Wyck, General Julian S. Carr, 
George Gordon Battle, Holland. Thompson, Isaac F. Harris, 
James A. Gwyn, Pleasant Daniel Gold, George B. Willis, Dr. 
Henry C. Cowles, Thomas Hill, Alfred W. Haywood, Jr.. 
Don Richardson, T. Holt Haywood, Louis Graves. Albert S. 
Cox, Banks Holt Mebane, John Manning Battle, James Pat- 
terson, Wesley Harriss, Bynum Glenn, Z. V. Judd, Robert 
Van Wyck (son of Judge Van Wyck), A. Marvin Carr, L. T. 
Avery. Stowe Crouse. Dr. Stroud Jordan. J. T. Keel. E. C. 
McLean. 

The meeting adjourned at 10 145— everybody sober and at 
peace with the world.

tone at the University observed in his visit there the same 
day. He said that the finest sight he ever saw was the 871 
boys who faced him in the Memorial Hall that morning. 

Judge A. W. Graham followed Secretary Daniels with a 
few heart) words. He spoke of the feeling of brotherhood 
and helpfulness which existed between alumni of the Uni- 
versity, and said there was no office in North Carolina he 
could covet more than that of trustee of this institution. 

Chief Justice Walter Clark referred to the days when the 
University was the equal of any northern institution and la- 
mented the present disparity in numbers of students and 
material wealth between our University and such institutions 
as Harvard and Vale and California.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Fire, supposedly originating' from an X-ray ma- 
chine, broke out in the physics lecture room of the 
Alumni Building Saturday night, November 8th, at 
8 o'clock, damaging the building and apparatus to the 
amount of $1,000. But for the timely discovery 
made by students and the immediate response of the 
student body and fire department, the results would 
have been very disastrous. The damage was covered 

by insurance. It is supposed thai - e of the wires 

connected with the X-ray machine were short cir- 
cuited and set fire to the woodwork on which the ma- 
chine rested.

The Has-Beens uWThe Is-Nows 



pT^USlNESS MEN are of two classes-the "HAS-BEENS" and the "IS NOWS". The "HAS- 
L^ BEENS" are the antiques— the fellow who looks through the business telescope from 
\_)j 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. 

HE IS A LIVE WIRE 
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 "IS NOW"; be a "LIVE WIRE". 
Bring us your account. We know your wants and want your business.

" Keeping in Front " 

You fellows know what that means ! 
We've been very successful in this 
regard with Fatima Cigarettes. By 
the way, these cigarettes were first 
sold in the college towns — and you 
agreed with us that they were good. 

Then we put out for the big race, 
to make Fatimas of nation-wide rep- 
utation, and today more are sold than 
any other cigarette in this country. 

No purer, or more carefully chosen 
tobacco grows than that in Fatimas. 
We purposely put them in a plain 
inexpensive wrapper — in this way 
we can afford quality tobacco, and 
twenty of the smokes for 1 5 cents. 

Now your college crew is of utmost 
importance to you — so is a good 
cigarette, and it's your aim in life 
to keep Fatimas m the lead — right 
up to their good quality — right up 
to where you first found them, and 
will always find them. 

Success fellows! You started this 
cigarette on its successful career — 
and you pull a strong oar all over 
this country.
