THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
THE PRESIDENT'S The "President's Eeport," em-
REPORT 'bracing reports from the Presi-
dent, the Acting President, and
various University officers for the year ending De-
cember 1, 1913, presents an extended and exceeding-
ly interesting story of University development. The
opening of the School of Education, the record regis-
tration in the Summer and regular sessions, the
growth of the Bureau of Extension, the increased
circulation of the Review^ the new lease on life
taken by athletic interests, the heartening spirit of
student and faculty co-operation running through the
whole gamut of University life — these are some of
the matters embodied in the account transmitted by
the Acting President to the Trustees which make the
report for 1913 epochal.
NUMBERS The size of the regular Freshman
class — 269 — and the total enrolment
— 875 — naturally challenge first attention. The Uni-
versity has drawn to its courses a splendid lot of
new men and has held an increased per cent of
former students. Erom a count made one month
after the opening of the term it was apparent that
23 counties of the State had sent 10 or more students,
with Mecklenburg leading with 41. On the other
hand Graham, Clay, Swain, Transylvania, Ruther-
ford, Mitchell, Polk, Brunswick, Dare, Currituck,
Stokes, and Avery — twelve counties — were not repre-
sented. A revised count, which the Review contem-
plates carrying in an early issue, will show an in-
creased number of counties contributing more than
10 and fewer counties contributing none. Of the
875 students, all excejjt 49 are residents of North
BUILDINGS 1913 was pre-eminently a building
year. Caldwell Hall, the new dormi-
tories, and the Peabody Building were all brought
into full service for the first time. The long-needed
filtration plant and the new dining hall were begun
and are now well under way. When the alumni re-
turn at commencement it is confidently expected that
the water in the spigots will rival that from the
" Well " in clarity and purity, and that the Alumni
Luncheon will be served in the spacious New Com-
mons. The reports of the various deans and ofticers
itemize the additional equipment in the form of ap-
paratus, books, etc., all of which go into the making
of an increasingly Greater University.
NEW FORCES Important as this material growth has
AT WORK been, the getting under way of the
School of Education during the Fall,
the upbuilding of the 1913 Summer School, and the
more thorough organization of the work of the Bu-
i-eau of Extension, represent an even more valuable
achievement. Handicapped in previous years by a
lack of quarters and teachers for the Department of
Education, the University has been unable to give the
schools of the State anything like the full service it
desired. With three new instructors added and the
present equipment, it now has the opportunity to
realize the ideal of service it has long held.
GETTING IN The Review shares the opinion ex-
TOUCH pressed by the Director of the Summer
School that the Summer School of
1913 was very potent in bringing the University into
sensitive touch with the State. Several very definite
impressions were made upon the teacher-students.
One was that the University was a genuine univer-
sity capable of giving helpful instruction. Another,
that it gave something which heartened the teachers
for the task of educational uplift back home. Still
another, that the University belonged to them, that
it was theirs, and that its desire to stand behind
them in their work was thoroughly genuine. Strong
in this belief, they went back to their schools and
homes with the result that wherever they are there
are outlets through which the University can touch
the life of the State.
EXTENSION Through the co-operation of the fac-
ulty, the Societies, the Athletic Asso-
ciation, and the Greater Council, the University took
a far step forward during the year " in making the
campus co-extensive with the bounds of the State."
The quotation is from the Acting President's pro-
gram of work as given on Oct. 12. Expressed satis-
tically, 101 lectures have been offered clubs, schools
and communities of the State to be given whei'ever
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
vhej are demanded. One liimdred high schools were
brought together in the Debating Union contest of
last March and 150 are now preparing for the com-
ing contest in April. Five bulletins issued in the
Extension series, and totaling 15,000 copies, have
been distributed. Twelve correspondemee courses
have been opeu.ed to teachers and others who could
not otherwise secure instruction from the University.
Two State-wide athletic meets were pi-ovided for Sec-
ondary Schools. 2,000 letters were written by the
various divisions of the Bureau of Extension in an-
swer to inquiries for information, and 12,000 sej)-
arate pieces of mail, including letters, bulletins, leaf-
lets, etc., were sent out during the twelve months
from the office of the High School Inspector.
NEEDED Certain needs of the University are
BUILDINGS set forth in the reports. Among these
suitable buildings for Physics, Elec-
trical Engineerino- Civil Engineerino- Geologv,
Pharmacy, and the Y. M. C. A, are most pressing.
For years the laboratory quarters of the departments
mentioned have been in the basement of the adminis-
tration building or in buildings poorly adapted to the
best grade of work.
CORRELATION ^\^ second need mentioned in the re-
OF COURSES j^orts, one which is fundamental,
and to which the attention of the
University has previously been called, is that of so
correlating the courses now offered liy the University,
the Summer School, and the correspondence division
as to enable students pursuing them to receive def-
iE.ite credits according to the character of the courses
taken. For work done both in the (Correspondence
and Summer courses, three or four different kinds
of credits should be given. To begin with, an arrange-
ment should be perfected with the State Department
of Education whereby work completed in certain
courses should entitle those completing them to cer-
tificates which would admit them to positions of a
specified character in the public schools. Work com-
pleted in other courses should be accepted by the
University for entrance, while work in still other
courses should lead to regular University credits.
In addition to this, as the system is developed, work
extending over as many as four Summer sessions in
graduate subjects should lead, in the case of gradu-
ates of reputable colleges, to the degree of A. il. If
need be, the courses leading to this degree could be
confined largely to those given by the School of Edu-
With the present appropriation of $2,000 for the
Summer School and the limited number of corres-
pondence courses offered, it is probable that not much
can be done, but the fact that study at Columbia
University during the Summer session may be count-
ed for an advanced degree, constitutes one of the
chief reasons — there are others of course — why one
hundred jVorth Carolina teachers go there annually
and many others go to Knoxville and Charlottesville,
where valuable credits are also given, instead of at-
tending the Summer School of Chapel Hill. Such
an arrangement will save North Carolina teachers
money, in that expenses are lower in Chapel Hill
than in New York; a serious, high-minded body of
students v,-ill be brought to the University for con-
tinuous work; and the University will have an op-
portunity to come into such vital contact with prin-
cipals and superintendents now not reached, that it
can exert upon the public school work of the State
a many fold greater influence than it is exerting
A MEDIUM OF Still another need, one hitherto
COMMUNICATION nnexpresed, has been presented —
the need of a medium of com-
munication through which the University can give,
direct, an account of its work to the people. This
need is voiced b_y the Schools of Ap]ilied Science and
iledicine \n relation to work in various courses and
is strongly felt by the Bureau of Extension, though it
was not expressed. An analysis of the publications
going from the University' will show that they are
(a) technical and scholarly, like Studies in Philol-
ogy ; (b) official, like the Catalogue ; and (c)
special, like the High School Bulletin and the Bul-
letins of the Bureau of Extension. The Rkview, to
be sure, goes to the alumni (1,500 of the 7,000 !), and
the daily press recounts the purely news features,
but the University has no medium through which it
can go directly to the people by whom it is supported
and to whom it would render full scrxace. The an-
swer to this need is a live, popular, University publi-
cation issued regularly and with sufficient frequency
to keep the work before the people. If the iTniver-
sity, through its officers and teachers, has informa-
tion on public health, on social service, on munici-
pal and State legislation, on public education, on
highway construction, on rural co-operation, on a
hundred other things — if it has information to give
and helpful suggestions to make, it should not have to
depend u])oii. classroom activities, occasional or
technical publications and academic discussions, as
its sole means of communication, but should offer
them direct to the public through a publication of
the character indicated.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ALUMNI Plans are already under way for a big
REUNIONS reunion at Commencement. The Alum-
ni Committee is now in communica-
tion with the classes of 1864, 1889, 1894, 1904, and
1909 which are scheduled to hold official reunions
this year. Other classes are being urged to. hold
unofficial meetings, and the suggestion has been made
of bringing 1913 back in. full force although it has
been away from the Hill only one year.
Back in 1911 when the i^lans for the organiza-
tion of the General Alumni Association had been
adopted only a short time, it was fi-equently pre-
dicted that within a very few years the campus
would be dotted with alumni tents during Commence-
ment week and that the " old grad," with " stunts ''
similar to those familar to many campuses, would
over-run the grounds. That has not happened yet,
but it can be effected and it would be wholly worth
while. Virginia effected it last year through the
local committee and the class of 1908 and Minnesota
is planning it this year and will use the class of
1904 as the organizer and director of all alumni
festivities. Is there a volunteer among the classes
of U. K C. ?
The presence of 1913 on the campus in June, or
any time, will bring joy to alma mater. 1913's loy-
alty and spirit constitute one of her most cherished
PROFESSOR Xhe announcement of the election of
BRANSON Prof. E. C. Branson to the new chair
of Applied Economics and Rural Soci-
ology is of signal importan/^e to the University and
the State. It marks the further committment of the
University to the policy of directing its forces in
those currents which lead to the uplift and upbuilding
of the Old North State. It is a further development
of the plan of making the University campus State-
Professor Branson comes admirably fitted for his
work. He is a native Tar Heel. He is a skilled,
effective educator. He is a trained sociologist and
has first hand knowledge of the economic and social
conditions in the South. He brings to the University
an idea which he has contriI)uted to American educa-
tion — the idea of having students study minutely and
sympathetically the economic and social life of their
own communities to the end that when they leave
college they will go back to their own i^eople to aid
them in the right solution of all their economic and
social questions. The State is to be congratulated on
THE Y. M. C. A. UNDER REVIEW
The Greatest Need of this Wide-Awake Institution is a New Building
The work of the Young Men's Christian Associa-
tion has continued its healthy growth of last year in
taking several imj)ortant forward steps. Among the
first in point of time was the reception to the now
men which the Social Connnittee, Philip Woollcott
and Francis Clarkson, removed from a fruit ])inicli
in the Association Lobby to a reception by the whole
college in the University Library.
The community interest and sustained energy of
Manager George Eutslcr has caused the book ex-
change to grow into a pretty big thing, doing busi-
ness not only at the beginnning of each term but
running through the year.
Bible Study Work has l)een organized in :i \erv
efficient way by Tom Boushall, chairnian. Tliroe
hundred and twelve men have been enrolled in over
a score of groups and have met every Sunday witli
an average attendance of one hundred and fortv men
in the dormitories, fraternity, houses and boarding-
Walter Fuller, in the neighborhood work, has kept,
the young life of the campus in touch with the rural
communitiees within a four mile radius. He has
caught the true spirit of the social service move-
ment and has made his department not only a matter
of the country Sunday school but of boys' clubs and
other rural organizations as well. Eighteen men
have helped him and his lieutenant, B. F. Auld, iu
making this work go.
The weekly meetings on Tuesday and Thursday
nights have been arranged in definite schedules. Two
series were given on Tuesday nights in the Fall, the
first devoted to the theme of " College Men and Re-
ligion," and the other to North Carolina problems of
taxation, education, morals, health, conservation, con-
stitution and religion. The Thursday night meet-
ings were short prayer meetings led liy students who
discussed the temptations and problems of the cam-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
pus. Six of these meetings were given over to the
study of negro life in the South.
The negro work has taken a long step forward. Tn
three negro Sunday schools students teach classes.
A night school is conducted five nights in the week
for the negro Iwys who are unable to go to day school.
Ten students are engaged in this work and have an.
average class of fifteen boys.
Two hundred and five dollars have been sent to
date to the Xew York office for the Barnett mission
fund. Chairman House and his assistant. Collier
Cobb, Jr., expect to send another large check later in
the term. This fund, which goes into the work of
Eugene Barnett, at the great student centre. Hang-
chow, China, will perhaps go further in its perma-
nent results both actively and reflexly than any equi\--
alent amount of money that goes from Chapel Hill
this year. A new and deeper impulse is given the
work here by this giving to the needs of young China
and the sympathies of the student body are -widened
with the vision of the mission movement which seeks
to save the world through the ideals and personality
of Christ. The enthusiasm of the five Kansas City
delegates has not only called attention to the value of
the Barnett fund but has also awakened interest in
the whole Student Volunteer Movement for the evan-
gelization of the world.
The financial system of the Association, which
was put on a good basis by Treasurer Lee Wiggins
last year, has been reorganized with even greater
efficiency. Dr. L. R. Wilson, of the faculty, at the
request of the general secretary and the student treas-
urer, consented to serve as active advisory treasurer.
All monies however small are checked out by the
treasurer and countersigned by Dr. Wilson. Every
bill is scrutinized by him and paid u]ion his approval.
Receipts are also given for all monies received and
are required for all monies paid out.
Whether the Association will come out even or not
cannot yet be said. Many improvcMuents have been
made in the appearance and the upkeep of the build-
ing and aggressive moves have been made in the
conduct of the several departments. The integrity
of the financial system and the soundness of the work
itself are due to the fine spirit of co-operation be-
tween the faculty and the students. The members of
the faculty have given their thought and money to
the success of the work and the students have worked
gladly and tirelessly. President J. E. Holmes has
about him a splendid cabinet of workers in H. S.
Willis, W. P. Fuller. T. C. Boushall, R E. Parker.
F. 0. Clarkson, .J. E. Turlington, G. W. Eutsler, R.
B. House, P. W. Woollcott, .T^\. Holmes, L. H. Ran-
son and C. E. Ervin.
Everywhere the need is felt for a Y. M. C. A.
building costing not less than $75,000 and equipped
to be a real student centre. The present cabinet
started quietly in October a movement which looks
to the erection of such a building. Seventy-five thou-
sand dollars sounds like a dream but the need is big
enough to make the dream come true in the present
LITERARY SOCIETY ACTIVITIES
Four Hundred Students Train for
The month of February finds the " Di " and
" Phi " Societies in the midst of their debating ac-
tivities and preparations for this year. In the matter
of inter-collegiate debates, a ti'iangle has been formed
consisting of the University of ISTorth Carolina, the
University of Virginia, and Johns Hojikins Univer-
sity, for a triangular debate on April 18th. The
query is " Resolved, that the political interests of
the United States demand the abandonment of the
Monroe Doctrine." Each University will put out
two teams, one on the affirmative and the other on the
negative. Carolina will have the negative against
Virginia and the affirmative against Johns Hopkins.
The debates will all be held on neutral grounds ; Car-
olina and Virginia will meet at Baltimore, Carolina
and Johns Hopkins at Charlottesville, and Virginia
and Johns Hopkins at Chapel Hill.
Already a representative number of students arc at
Leadership in Public Discussion
woi-k preparing to enter the preliminaries for these
debates. Any student of the University who is a
member of either society is eligible to enter the pre-
liminary contests. Usually those who compete for
places on the teams come from the Junior and Senior
classes, and the Law School. In the thirty-seven de-
bates that have been engaged in by Carolina with
other Universities, from Pennsylvania to Tulaue and
Vanderbilt, twenty-seven have been victories for Car-
olina. Out of the last twelve debates, only one has
been lost. The winnin.g of a place on a debating team
is an honor that is highly prized and much striven
for by University students. The debates themselves
are events that are not surpassed in importance and
universal interest by anything that happens on the
campus during the course of the year. The debates
this Spring with Virginia and Johns Hopkins are
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
being looked forward to with eagerness by the student
HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
Just at this time, too, interest is gathering not
only in Chapel Hill, but all over the State in. the ap-
proaching State-Avide contest of the High School
Debating Union. The effect of the extension of the
societies' work last year to the high schools is seen in
an active interest in debating in almost any school
that might be selected in ?^orth Carolina. Already
one hundred and fifty high schools have enrolled in
the Union, and have been arranged in triangles for
debates on March 20th. All the schools which win
both of their debates in this contest will send both
teams to Chapel Hill on. April 3rd to take part in the
final contest. To the school winning out finally will
be awarded the Aycock ilemorial Cup, the prize
which has been generously contributed to the Union
by the inter-collegiate debaters of the University.
This cuji was awarded last year to the Pleasant Car-
den High School, of Guilford County.
The query that will be discussed by all of these
schools is, " Eesolved, That the Constitution of North
Carolina should be so amended as to allow the Initi-
ative and Referendum in State-wide legislation." A
considerable amount of material on this question, in-
cluding one sixty-page extension series publication
devoted exclusively to a study of the Initiative and
Referendum, and several thousand Congi-essional
speeches and documents, has been sent to the schools
from Chapel Hill. The sup])ort given to the move-
ment by the school men and the active interest in
debating and discussion of public questions all over
North Carolina are an abundant justification of the
wisdom of the Societies in extcmding their work to
the high schools which form the lower part of the
State's educational system. Every school is intent
upon bringing the Aycock Cup home, and there is no
doubt but that a warm and interesting contest will be
staged in Xorth Carolina on the dates of March 20th
■A\\i\ April 3rd.
THK SOCIETIES ON THE CAMPUS
The inter-collegiate debates rest for their support
and for the training of their participants upon the
inter-society and intra-society debates. There ar(>
three inter-society debates held every year. These
are the Soph-Junior, held in December; the Fresh-
Soph, held in A])ril ; and the Commencement debate,
held on Tuesday night of Commeiicement week.
These debates are usually close and always warmly
contested. At present the interest centers mostly in
the Fresh-Soph, and the Commencement debates.
Two Juniors from each Society represent their So-
ciety respectively in the ComniPTicement debate.
To the best speaker on the winning side in this debate
the Bingham IMedal is awarded. Beginning in 1912,
the Carr Medal in oratory has been contested for dur-
ing Junior Week by two Juniors chosen in compe-
tition from each Society'. The places on all of these
teams are filled in competitive, preliminary contests.
Besides these inter-society contests, a Freshman
Deliate is held separately in each Society. In both
societies the final speakers are selected in competiti\'e
contests. In the final contest in the Philanthropic
Society there are two speakers to a side, and the man
making the best speech is awarded a prize of ten dol-
lars. The Dialectic Society provides for four speakers
to a side, and gives a distinctive gold clasp ]nn to the
man who makes the best speech.
Regular debates are held in the two Societies on
Friday and Saturday nights of each week. Only the
si^eakers are required to attend the Friday night meet-
ings. Membership is not compulsory, but notwith-
standing this fact, the greater number of the students
join one or the other of the societies and find in them
what is considered by many as the best training pro-
vided at the University. From early times those
from the East have joined the Philauthroi)ic Society,
and those from the West have joined the Dialectic
UNIVERSITY LECTURE COURSE
In this, the second year in which the University
has supplied a course of public lectures for the benefit
and i^leasure of students and faculty, the com-
mittee has again sought to secure variety of in-
terest, as well as high excellence in subject at
presentation. Owing in large measure to the
alterations in the dates originally set for the Japan-
ese Exchange Lectures and the McNair Lectures, it
was found difficult to secure open available dates for
the University Lectures. The lectures which have
already been delivered are Joel Chandler Hams and
the Uncle Remus Stories, by Mr. R. T. Wyche, Pres-
ident of the National Story-Tellers League, on No-
vember 24, 1913; and Dr. Gaillard Hunt, Chief of
tlie MSS. Division, Library of Congress, on .lanuary
16, 1914. On March 25, the famous physician and
popular writer. Dr. Woods Hutchison, will speak
here; and in May, Dr. Joseph A. Holmes, Director
of the Bureau of Mines, who has recently visited
Alaska in the interest of the U. S. Government, will
speak on " Our Great Northwestern Empire." A
consistent and prolonged effort has been made to
secure Alfred Noyes, one of the greatest living poets ;
and the hope is still advanced that he may visit the
institution this Spring.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
CAROLINA ADOPTS NEW ELIGIBILITY RULES
Hereafter Carolina and Virginia will be Governed by Almost Identical Regulations
At its regular January meeting the faculty adopted
the following code of eligibility rules :
Eligibility Rules ok the University
1. No student whose parents or guardians object to his
participation in athletic contests shall be allowed to take
part in such contests.
2. No student shall pla.v upon the University athletic
teams except after physical examination by the Director of
the Gymnasium (or by a responsible expert officer of the
University acting in his stead and by his request) and with
the approbation of the Director.
3. A student who was in attendance upon the University
during a previous term or session must have passed satis-
factory examinations upon at least eight hours of work
before he will be allowed to represent the University in any
4. Inasmuch as a member of an athletic team of this
University is a representative student and enjoys special
honor in thus representing the Universit}', this privilege
shall be withheld from any student whose scholastic standing
is discreditable. A preliminary report of the scholastic
standing of the members of the football team shall be called
for on October 15th and of the baseball team on March isth,
and the players notified of their deficiencies. Another report
shall be called for on November 15th for the football team
and April 15th for the baseball team, at which time any
player deficient in a majority of his studies shall be debarred
from representing the University during the remainder of
5. The members of any athletic team may be allowed not
more than ten lecture days leave of absence from the Uni-
versity for the purpose of engaging in athletic contests; but
no student who is a member of more than one athletic team
shall be allowed more than twenty lecture days leave of ab-
sence during the entire session for such purpose.
6. The manager of each athletic team shall submit to the
Faculty Committee on Athletics or to the President a schedule
of all engagements before positive arrangements are made.
7. Before any student can become a member or a sub-
stitute member of any athletic team in the University, and take
part in any intercollegiate contest, he must make application
to the Faculty Committee on Athletics in the University and
secure the endorsed approval of that Committee to his appli-
cation. It shall be the duty of the Faculty Committee on Ath-
letics to have the Executive officers of the University endorse
such application to the effect that the applicant is a registered
student of the University.
8. It shall be the 5uty of the Athletic Committee to inquire
into and make a record of the athletic experiences of the
applicant, and it shall be the duty of the applicant to appear
before the Committee and answer on his honor such questions
as the Committee may see fit to ask.
9. It shall be the duty of the Athletic Committee to re-
quire a pledge in writing of the applicant, certifying on his
honor that he has never accepted, directly or indirectly,
remuneration, compensatory gift, valuable consideration, or
promise thereof, for his athletic services, and that he is in
the proper and strict sense of the word an amateur player in
collegiate athletic sports, before the Committee endorses his
10. It shall be the duty of the Graduate Manager, the
Head Coach, the President and the Treasurer of the Athletic
Association, the members of the Athletic Council, the Direc-
tor of the Gymnasium, and the Manager and the Captain of
the team concerned to furnish the Faculty Committee on
Athletics, on request, a statement to the effect that each
member of an athletic team is above their suspicion as to
liis eligibility to represent the University as an amateur player
before such player shall be allowed to take part in any contest.
11. No student who has been a member of, or substitute
member of, the football or baseball team of another college
or University during the preceding college year shall be
permitted to become a member of either team of this Uni-
versity during his first session, with the following exception :
Such student shall be eligible for these teams at this Uni-
versity if he shall have registered in this University not later
than within one week after the opening of the preceding
spring term, and shall have been a student here during the
Note I. The term "substitute" is interpreted to mean a
student who has taken part in two or more inter-collegiate
Note 2. The term "college" is hereby interpreted to mean
any college named in Table 28 of the Report of the U. S.
Commissioner of Education for 1902, which has not fewer
than 150 male students of collegiate grade recorded in the
catalogue of the institution in question as students of the
college year preceding the applicant's entrance into the Uni-
Note 3. The college year consists of one session divided
into two terms. '
12. No person whose name appears in the catalogue list
of officers of instruction and administration of the Univer-
sity, and who receives remuneration therefrom, shall be a
member of any athletic team representing the University.
13. The maximum period of eligibility for baseball and
fuotball shall be four years. In estimating the period of
eligibility the years of baseball and football shall both be

with four years' athletic work, unless at least four calendar
years have elapsed from the time he entered upon his first
intercollegiate contest, omitting from the calculation any
sessional intermission by non-attendance. In case the player
does not participate in either baseball or football during a
college session, such session shall not be counted, but if such
player does play on either the baseball or football team dur-

sume responsible charge of the details of the athletic situation

residence, maximum period of eligibility and amateur stand-
If). The maximum period of eligibility for baseball or foot-
ball shall be four years. In estimating the period of eligibility

on either the baseball or the football team during any inter-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
mediate session, this shall count as if the player had played
on both teams during such session.
THE KULES COMPAEED
A comparison of these regulations shows the de-
sired identity in the three essential requirements in
regard to the period of residence, maximum period
of eligibility and amateur standing. The regulations
concerning the period of residence exhibit a slight
difference. Virginia requires an athlete from an-
other college to have been a student at Virginia five
months in the preceding year in order to qualify in
the current year. Carolina requires such a student
to have registered for his residence within one week
after the opening of the spring terui in order to
qualify in the current year. This dilference is due
to the difference in the time of the commencement of
the spring term and means that at Virgiuia the
athlete must have registei'ed by Januai-y twelfth and
at Carolina by February the fifth of the preceding
The other points of difference grow out of less
material requirements adapted to the particular con-
ditions of each institution. The Virginia athletic
system is so well established as not to need a profes-
sional coach. Carolina is in the process of establish-
ing the Princeton system and Princeton coaches are
indispensable to its establishment. Virginia has
abolished the training table for all forms of athletics,
Carolina still retains it for football. Other less im-
portant differences have to do with the consent of
parents or guardian to a student's participation in
athletic contests, the definition of a substitute, and
the number of days for which leave of absence is
granted during a season.
On the important point of scholarship, the differ-
ence is in the definiteness of the requirement in the
Carolina regulations. The scholarship requirement
at Virginia debars a player for class standing that is
discreditable in the opinion of the president and the
faculty and futhermore applies the residence rule
to students who enter with credits amounting to less
than ten units. The scholarship requirement at Car-
olina debars a player who has not jjassed on eight
hours of work in the previous year or who is deficient
in a majority of his studies in mid-term.
The adoption of these rules mark an advance in
representative sport at Carolina. However, we are
not abreast of Vanderbilt and Georgia, two of our
coming rivals and leaders in the athletics of the
lower South. A glance at the regulations of the
Eastern universities and at the rules of the Western
Conference, shows how far Virginia and Carolina
have yet to go in order to secure the highest guaran-
tees of pure sportsmanship.
In the S. I. A. A. the nine months rule against
athletes from other colleges is in force and fourteen
units are required for any first year man to be elig-
ible. In the representative universities of the East
and the West, onJy undergraduates are eligible who
have completed a full year's college work in residence
the i^revious year and the maximum period of eligi-
bility is limited to three years. Scholarship require-
ments are enforced for failure the jirevious year and
for deficiency in the term. Little or no concession is
uiade for laboratory work. Training tables are
abolished. Soliciting athletes by any athletic official
of the college is ahsolutely under the ban. Amateur
athletics is promoted at every i^bssible point. All
over the country there is a forward movement for
cleaia and representative sport.
INTER-SCHOLASTIC ATHLETIC CONTESTS
Announceuieut has been made of two events which
will prove important in the athletic life of Xorth
Carolina secondary and high schools this Spring.
These are the second annual inter-scholastic track
meet, to he held at Chapel Hill on April 3rd under
the auspices of the Greater Council and Alumni Ath-
letic Association of the University of North Carolina,
and the first annual championship contest in baseball,
to be held at Chapel Hill on some date to be deter-
mined later, under the auspices of the Alumni Ath-
letic Association of the University.
All secondary schools of North Carolina, however
supported, are eligible to send representatives to
contest in the inter-scholastic track meet. The events
of the meet will be: One-hundred-yard dash, 440-yard
run, 880-yard run, one-mile run, 120-yard low hur-
dles, high juni]), broad jump, pole vault, twelve-pound
shot put, twelve-pound hammer throw, and a relay
To the school which wins the largest number of
points a championship cup will be awarded. This
cup at present is in the possession of the High Point
Pligh School, the winner of the meet last year. The
school which wins the relay race will be awarded a
cup. To every contestant winning a first place in any
event, a silver medal will be awarded, and to every
contestant winning a second place a bronze medal
will be awarded. All contestants coming to Chapel
Hill for the meet will be entertained by the students
of the University.
For this year the championship contest in baseball
is open only to public high schools, city and rural.
The committee at Chapel Hill will arrange a series
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of games in a preliminary contest for all high school
baseball teams, city and rural, which have up to and
including May 2ud won as many as four games from
teams representing schools of similar rank, and have
not been defeated. To be eligible to enter this pre-
liminary contest a school must fulfill the requirement
of having won four games and lost none.
Throug'h the process of elimination in this prelimi-
nary contest, two teams will be selected which will
come to Chapel Hill to play the final game for the
State championship. The General Alumni Athletic
Association will bear all expenses, including trans-
portation both ways and hotel bills, of the two teams
selected for the final contest, and will provide enter-
tainment for these two teams while they are on the
Hill. This final game will be jjlayed some time in
May, the exact date to be determined later, after con-
sultation with the high school men and teams.
MOEE INTEREST IN FOOTBALL
The championship contest in football which was
carried to a successful issue last fall was highly en-
couraging and resulted in deei)ening the interest of
quite a number of high schools in football. The con-
test in football, the track meet, and the contest in
baseball are a natural part of the University's larger
activities, particularly in the high school life of the
State, and they are ranked along with the High
School Debating Union, in which already more than
150 schools are enrolled for a state-wide debating
tourney this Spring.
The committee which has in charge the matter of
arranging these contests is composed of !N". W. Walk-
er, chairman ; E. R. Rankin, secretary ; T. G. Tren-
chard, C. E. Ervin, Oscar Leach, and 2^. J. Cartmell.
Of the 1913 baseball team six are in college now
eligible to play. Hart, catcher, Aycock and Craven,
pitchers, K. Bailey, captain, second baseman, John-
son, and H. Bailey, outfielders. Other members of
the squad who will again, he out for the team are
Norris, first-'baseman, Knowles, catcher, and Zolli-
"Shag Thompson," last year's left fielder, Kluttz of
the Medical School, and Lee, of the Law School, are
ineligible on acount of having played league liall.
Lee will be with the Winston team again. Thomjison
was annexed by Connie Mack from Durham and has
been, farmed out tn Chattanooga. Kluttz has quit
lights that failed is being formed. " Join the Fed-
erals " is the consoling behest of Manager Joe Tinker
Thompson (alias "Shag"). The Associated Rum-
ors have it that Gooch, the 400 hitting outfielder,
Cowell, Groom, Tandy and Edwards, the giant first
baseman, have all gone back on the regular organiza-
tion. The Federals inteiul to make the Regulars keep
on the jump this season.
Raymond Lee, '12, who blanked Virginia three
times and bested Rixey in two series, will report for
duty as special coach of pitchers on February 15th
and will assist Coach Earle Mack until March 15th.
■• General " Lee should make au excellent coach for
a college statf of pitchers. He ran the course from
an ordinary class team twirler to the premier pitcher
of the Carolina league.
CAROLINA QUINTET TAKES TWO FROM CHARLOTTE
During the Christmas holidays the Carolina bas-
ketball team defeated the strong team representing
the Charlotte Y. M. C. A. in two games by the
scores of 42 to 32 and 52 to 29. It was really a game
of Charlotte against Charlotte. Four of the six Car-
olina players were Charlotte lads, the Long brothers,
Carey Dowd, and Preston Andrews. The long reach
of Edwards and the shooting of Mehane Long and
Dowd ran up the score for Carolina.

MEETING OF THE TRUSTEES
The mid-winter meeting of the Board of Trustees
was held in the Governor's office in Raleigh, January
27th, at 11 A. M., a large number of the Board
and Acting President Graham being in attendance.
The following business was transacted.
The reports of the President and Acting President,
conveying the reports of all the officers of the Uni-
versity, were presented and received. The work of
the University thus summarized showed the largest
attendance in the University's history and evidenced
progress in every department.
Upon the presentation of a letter from the Y. M.
C. A. asking for permission to apply to John D.
Rockefeller for $50,000 for a new Y. M. C. A. build-
ing, a resolution was passed pledging a sum of $600
annually to the maintenance of the building in the
event it was secured.
Professor H. H. Williams, of the Department of
Philosophy, was granted a year's leave of absence,
beginning September 1, to spend in study at North-
Athletics and the Bureau of Extension received
consideration. It was decided that the matter of
resuming athletic relations with the A. & M. College
and all other athletic questions involving eligibility
rules, schedules, etc., should be left entirely in the
hands of the faculty. A formal resolution was passed
in commendation of the work of the Bureau of Ex-
$2,000 was approi^riated for the maintonanco of
the Summer School for 1914.
In the absence of Dr. R. H. Lewis, Mr. Charles

PROF. E. C. BRANSON BECOMES PROFESSOR OF AP-
PLIED ECONOMICS AND RURAL SOCIOLOGY
As a further step in its elfort to contriliute to the
forces that are building u]) Xortli Carolina, the I'^n.i-
versity announces the election, at the recent meeting
of the Board of Trustees, of E. ,C. Branson, Profes-
sor of Rural Economics in the State I^ormal School
of Athens, Ga., as Professor of Applied Economics
and Rural Sociology. Professor Branson's acceptance
of the new professorship has been received and his
connection with the University will liegin September
Professor Branson's work at the University will
be similar to that in which he has been engaged in
Georgia where he originated the '' Georgia Club " or
" Know Your Homo State Club " idea and gave it
such practical form that it is being widely adopted
throughout the country. His courses in the Uni-
versity will be intensive studies of the resources, con-
ditions, and tendencies in North Carolina's economic
history, studied county by county. His work will
supplement the present efficient work in political sci-
ence and economics, and Avill extend the University's
influence directly in helping sympathetically and
scientifically the various counties in the State in the
•solution of local questions.
Professor Branson is a native North Carolinian,
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
having been born, in ^loreheml City. He taught in
Raleigh and Wilson in the early nineties and in 1896
organized the public schools of Athens, Ga. From
1900 to 1912, he was President of the State Xornial
School of xVthens, and since 1912 lias been Professor
of Eural Economics and Director of the Kuow Your
Home State Clubs of Georgia. At the same time
he has been editor of the Home and Farmstead,
through which the studies of the clubs and other
economic and social studies liave been given to the
peeople of the South.
Professor Branson is the author of several educa-
tional texts, and has frequently been in demand at
leading universities and educational conferences.
During the present year he has condticted sepeial
studies at this University and the University of the
South Carolina, has spoken before the Xorth Caro-
lina Teachers' Assembly, and has delivered a series
of lectures before the students of Columbia Univer-
sity. His M-ork in the field of rural sociology has
been so distinctive that he has been asked to serve
on various commissions of the Federal Government
and his work with the student groups of Georgia has
been made the subject of a special bulletin issued by
the U. S. Bureau of Education under the title, " The
THE UNIVERSITY MAGAZINE
Under the editorship of W. P. Fuller, the Uni-
versity Magazine is this year a genuinely up-to-date,
forceful college monthly. It will hold its own with
any other monthly which reaches the exchange tables
in the Y. M. C. A.
The January nunibor, attractive in cover and typo-
graphy, contains three papers which are of decided
interest. The first summarizes the views of religion
held by twenty-one Juniors and fifteen Seniors; the
second presents an admirable statement of the reasons
why the faculty committee on athletics can be trusted
to do the right thing in the administration of rules for
gridiron and diamond contests; and the third treats
historically and pictorially of the ups and downs of
the Magazine itself since its beginning in 1844.
In the last article, nine covers under which the
Magazine has appeared are reproduced ; the names of
those who were instrumental in founding and re-
vivifying the publication from time to time, are
mentioned ; and a running story of its life is given.
Many a former editor's name appears in the history,
and its reading by former students whom the " Di "
and " Phi " honored with editorial offices will prove
of peculiar interest.
DRAMATIC CLUBS EASTERN SCHEDULE
The University Dramatic Club is again preparing
to put on its annual production. This year, in an
effort to retain the humor and general hilarity
which characterized last year's production of
"■ What Happened to Jones," and, at the same time, to
raise dramatics to a higher jjlane and produce a j)la''
worthy of a University organization, "■ The Magis-
trate " by Arthur W. Pinero was chosen for presenta-
tion. Sir Arthur Wing Pinero stands out as one of
the most eminent of living English dramatists, and
bis play '' The Magistrate " is in no way unworthy of
its author. It is one of his most characteristic com-
edies, — full of humor and sparkling with wit.
Mr. W. P. M. Weeks, of Washington, D. C, who
played " Prof. Goody " in last year's production of
■' What Happened to Jones," is playing the title rule
(if "The Magistrate." Those who saw last year's play
will probably recall with pleasur-e the portrayer of the
irrepressible " Jones," Mr. Chas. L. Coggin, of Salis-
Iniry, JST. C. He is this year playing '"Colonel Lukyn,"
the role played by John Drew in the first American
production. Several others of last year's cast are in
this year's play. The members of the cast are : W.
D. Kerr, Greensboro; H. C. Conrad, Pfafftown; W.
B. Pitts, Charlotte ; H. J. Eenn, Oxford ; J. M. Cox,
Hertford; J. F. Pugh, Elizabeth City; C. A. Bose-
man, Enfield; H. M^Blalock, Raleigh; E. B. Marsh,
Salisbury; J. E. Hoover, High Point; il. R. Dunna-
gan, Yadkinville, and J. A. Capps, Shelby.
Before the Review comes from press, the play will
have had its premiere in Ohapel Hill (February 6th)
and will have been jiresented at the State formal,
Greensi)oro (February 7th). The manager of the
Club, ^Ir. J. S. Bryan, has succeeded in arranging
the following engagements for the eastern trip in
February: 14th, St. Mary's, Raleigh; I7th, Wilson;
18th, Eastern Carolina Training School, Greenville;
]9th, Newbern; 20th, Wilmington; and 21st, Clinton.
The western trip will be taken in A2:)ril, and will
probably includ(! Salem College (Winston-Salem),
Charlotte, Salisbury and Statesville.
CALIFORNIA CHALLENGES CAROLINA
The Carolina Uebating Union has recently had the
unex|)ected pleasure of considering a challenge for a
series of two debates with the Law School of the
I'^niversity of Southern California. It was pi'oposed
that the debate for 1914 be held in Los Angeles, in
which city there is an extensive x^orth Carolina Club,
and that the second be held in 1915 in North Caro-
lina. Engagements with other rivals at home made
it imfwssiblo for the Union to close the contract.

CLIPPINGS FROM THE PRESS
Resolutions couiiueuding the University were pass-
ed as follows by the Farmers' Union and its Edu-
cational Committee at the Union's meeting held at
Shelby iu December.
By the Union:
Whereas, we note with pleasure that the State Board of
Agriculture has recommended that the Governor set apart a
week in next November as "Civic Service Week," for holding
local fairs, county school rallies, meetings to discuss plans
for county and neighborhood improvement, etc. ; and the
Board has recommended a conference of various State insti-
tutions and departments to consider plans for working to-
gether more effectively than ever before in service to the
people of the State, therefore be it
Resolved, That we hartily endorse both suggestions and
offer the co-operation of the State Union; and that a com-
mittee of three be appointed to bring this action to the atten-
tion of the Governor and the Department of Agriculture.
By the Educational Committee:
(i.) We congratulate the State Union at large upon the
splendid success it has achieved during the past year along
educational lines. Perhaps nothing has been done in the
last quarter century that will have so far-reaching an effect
upon the pattern and te.xture of the fabric of our citizenship
as the six-months' school law and the compulsory attendance
act, both of which owe their passage to our organization.
(2.) Especially do we commend the State University for
its recent effort along the line of Country Life Work.
THE WOMEN'S CLUBS CONFER
The annual mid-winter Council meeting of the
State Federation of Women's Clubs met in Chapel
Hill, January 15th and 16th, upon the invitation of
the Community Club. The General Secretary of the
Y. M. C. A. and John S. Cansler, as a representative
of the Greater Student Council, met the visitors at
University Station. The University kindly offered
the use of the Peabody Building for meetings. Re-
ports from the officers of the Federation, from chair-
men of all departments, and of special committees
were presented for discussion ; and the May meeting
in Fayetteville was j^'l'^iim'^tl in detail. The out-
standing features of Dhese reports were the plea for
the establishment of winter gardens and kitchenettes
in schools by Mrs. Carter, Chairman of Household
Economics, and the plan of Mrs. Lingle to bring into
the State a lecturer from the ^National Civic Asso-
ciation, who would deliver an illustrated lecture on
civic improvement, form Junior Civic leagues and
get the children to work.
The Community Club held a large meeting in the
Peabody Auditorium Thursday night at which excel-
lent talks were made by Miss Fries, President of the
Federation, by Mrs. Lingle, Chairman of Civics, and
by Mrs. Hook, Chairman of Economics. Fri.day
night a very beautiful reception was held in the li-
brary at which members of the Council had an op-
portunity of meeting members of the faculty and of
the Community Club. Mrs. J. H. Pratt gave a lunch-
eon on Thursday and Mrs. Archibald Henderson on
Friday and on Friday afternoon Dr. Battle gave
much pleasure by taking the ladies over the campus.
THE MUSICAL CLUBS' EASTERN TRIP
The Glee and Mandolin clubs of the University
took a three day trip in the Eastern part of the State
during the second week in December. They visited
Goldsboro on December 11, Wilson on the 12th, and
Raleigh on the 13th. At each place they were given
a most cordial welcome and jolly time by the Alumni
and citizens of the town ; it would be hard to say
where they had the best time.
In Goldsboro_, Tom jSTorwood and Guy Dortch man-
aged the business part and so well had they performed
their task, that a large and enthusiastic audience
greeted the boys in the Opera House with hearty ap-
plause for each numlaer presented. After the per-
formance the boys stormed a Methodist-bazaar and
bought all the chicken salad and boudoir caps that
could be had.
Blake Applewhite and Jim Hackney chaperoned
the troupe at Wilson. By the kindness and generosity
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of the Atlantic Christian College, the concert was held
in its auditorium. A goodly portion of the audience
was composed of fair co-eds whose generous applause
inspired the boys to do their best.
Saturday morning, December 13, the musicians
took Raleigh by storm. At the station they were met
by Joe Boushall who escorted them to the Capital
Club where they were entertained till dinner. In the
afternoon they were invited to a dance at the Country
Club where, needless to say, a most delightful time
was had. The concert was given in the Auditorium
and though it was not filled, those who were present
atoned for this fact by the warm reception they gave
the musicians. It was unfortunate that the girls from
St. Mary's were detained 'by an entertainment of their
own ; but the fair ones from Peace and Meredith were
present in large numbers.
At each place the towns-people entertained the
boys in their homes who in turn have only words of
the highest praise to tell of the hospitality received
in every case.
The Clubs will take their Spring trip during the
last week of February and expect to visit Winston-
Salem, Greensboro, Hickory, Lenoir, Gastonia, and
Charlotte. The following is the personnel of the

It is the purpose of this department not only to publish all
timely facts of interest about alumni — changes of residence
and occupation, marriages, deaths, meetings, achievements,
etc.. but 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
of information are solicited from all alumni and their friends
but especially are the secretaries of the associations and
the secretaries of the classes requested to keep the editor
informed. Notes on a few alumni in each city or county
and class contributed every month will be greatly appreciated.
CLASS REUNIONS FOR COMMENCEMENT 1914
The classes scheduled to hold reunions during Commence-
ment 1914 are those of 1864, 1889, 1894, 1904, 1909, 1913, the
one-, five-, ten-, twenty-, twenty-five-, and fifty-year gradu-
ates. Members of these classes will facilitate prepara-
tion for these reunions if they will place themselves at once
in communication with their respective class secretaries and

On the evening of Tuesday, Dec. 30, the alumni of Gaston
County met at a banquet at the Falls House, Gastonia, and
organized the Gaston Alumni Association of the University
of North Carolina. The banquet was informal, the spirit of
comradeship, humor and song prevailing. The University
songs were printed in full in a neat programme. Mr. A. G.
Mangum, '93, was toastmaster and admirably happy in intro-
ducing the speakers. Mr. John G. Carpenter, Law, '04, of
the local bar, extended a hearty welcome to the visiting
alumni present. Mr. George B. Mason spoke on the sulijccl
of "Athletics at Carolina."
Professor Marvin H. Stacy, 02, acting dean iif the Uni-
versity, was the guest of honor and the principal speaker of
the evening. Professor Stacy's subject was "The Obliga-
tions of the University to the State." He compared the old
ideal of a University as emljodied by Ezra Cornell in the
institution which bears his name with the newer ideal. The
present day University will not only furnish opportunity for
instruction and investigation in any line of work and study,
but must devote itself to the social service of the State,
extending its influence, its specialized knowledge, in immediate
service, to every nook and corner of the State. The Univer-
sity of North Carolina had passed through a wonderful
transformation during the past fifteen years in material equiji-
ment, size of student liody and faculty, but above all in its
realization of its dut\- to the State and the people out-
side its campus. The University was realizing this new
awakening not simply on paper but by far reaching
activities; the creation of the Department of Education; the
extension of the Library in making it accessible through
express and parcel post, through its bulletins and book-lists
of special subjects; the extension of the lecture courses and
the creation of the correspondence courses ; the organization
of the High School Debating Union and other activities
which the self-governing student body were quietly and suc-
cessfully working out. He appealed, in closing, to the Gaston
County Alumni to keep the best interests of the University
on their hearts.
Officers of the permanent association elected were; Presi-
dent, A. G. Mangum, '93; Vice-President, George B. Mason,
'13; Secretary-Treasurer, E. R. Rankin, '13.
Alumni present were: A. G. Mangum. M. H. Stacy, J. G.

The annual banquet of the Wayne County Alumni Associa-
tion of the University of North Carolina was held on the
evening of Dec. 30 in the Elks' Club of Goldsboro. An
admirable feature of this meeting of the Association was
the presence by invitation of many students of the county
and city High Schools. The credit for this idea seems due
to the Wayne County Club at the University and might
he imitated by other Associations with valuable results to
the University and to the prospective college students.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Mr. Matt H. Allen, 'o-(, presided as toastmaster, tactfully
postponing speechmaking until cigars and coffee. This plan
of procedure not only lessens formality but gives opportunity
for renewing auld acquaintance and sharpening reminis-
Mr. Wm. S. Bernard, 'oo, of the University faculty was
the lirst speaker, his subject, "The Newer University in
Social Service to the State." He said that a new birth, a
new ideal had come into University activity with the en-
thusiasm of a religious revival, quickening faculty and students
alike. This ideal was, in the apt words of Acting President
Graham, "To make the campus co-extensive with the State,"
to distribute and apply the. knowledge and methods already
gained in the laboratories and lecture rooms to the imme-
diate and imminent needs of the people, to render services
in civic, rural, social and educational endeavor. This was
no sentimental ideal or typewritten programme, but already
a well oiled piece of machinery turning out results
under the brand University Extension. University Extension
comprised thus far six phases of activity:
1. Correspondence Courses on any subject offered to any
qualified to take them.
2. Lectures by members of the faculty on any subject,
delivered anywhere in the State free of all charge save
3. Access to the University library by means of express
and parcel post.
4. The Statewide High School Debating Union organ-
ized by the Students of the University.
5. The Inter-high school football and track athletic con-
tests, also a student endeavor.
6. The County Clubs at the University and their aim to
render service to their respective counties by "social and
economic surveys." But however much or little the definite
service rendered, the great fact for congratulation was the
giving back to the State in heart and purpose her greatest
Mr. Bernard was followed by Coach T. G. Trenchard, of
the University, who gave a short history of the year's endeavor
in athletics on the Hill and outlined the purposes and needs
of the Athletic Management. He dealt particularly on the
handicaps which University teams carried in competition with
the University of Virginia.
Professor M. C. S. Noble, '81, devoted himself to entertain-
ing the banqueters with his inexhaustible fund of humor and
Other speeches were made at the call of the toastmaster by

—This comment by Herbert Reed ("Right Wing"), sporting
editor of "Harper's Weekly," in the issue of December 20th
will be of interest to the alumni of the University, particularly
to those who knew Ernest Graves as a Carolina fullback.
"The victory over the Navy, taking into consideration all
the brands of football played by the West Pointers, belongs
first to the team, and second to purely Army coaching. It
is true, of course, that the .Army's head coach was influenced
to some extent by his football schooling at Harvard Uni-
versity, but it must be remembered that Lieut. Daly was also
a remarkable player while a cadet at West Point, and that
his chief assistant, Capt. Ernest Graves, was a product of
the same school, although like his chief, thoroughly in touch
with Harvard football. The theories of line play promul-
gated by Capt. Graves are known in Boston as 'Graves' Bible.'
He has set his mark on football as indelibly as any other man
who has ever played the game."

HY MAKE A WILL
If j'ou have accumulated propertj- during
your lifetime you will wish to bestow that
propertj' in certain ways. To do so the
maUing of a will is necessary.
The careful planning, drawing and execu-
tion of a will is the most solemn act of a man's life
and one that a man should never overlook. If this
important matter is neglected then the courts will do
what the individual should have done. It will ai>
point an administrator of your estate.
In taking this action the court will do what it be-
lieves to be right, but during life, or after death, no
tliinking man wants another to determine how he
will dispose of his accumulations.
It is important that you make a will, and it is also
important that in the will you name a prudent and
able executor. VVhv not name the
