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 



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. 


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 
his coming. 


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- 



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 
college generation. 


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 



being looked forward to with eagerness by the student 


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. 


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 


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. 



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 
athletic contest. 

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 
the term. 

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

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 
said term. 

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

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 
taken into account ; but in no case shall a player be charged 
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- 
ing any intermediate session, this shall count as if the player

thus prescribed shall be added all league teams in any state 
or states, which the leading university of such state or states 
declares professional and from which it debars its own 



15. The Faculty Committee on Athletics is directed to as- 
sume responsible charge of the details of the Athletic situation 
and to permit the playing of intercollegiate games with such 
colleges only as express a general conformity with the code 
of rules adopted by this faculty. The term "general con- 
formity" is interpreted to mean conformity in regard to 
period of residence, maximum period of eligibility and aina- 
tcur standing. 

Eligibilitv Riles ov thi; University oi- \'irc.ini.\ 

1. The Faculty Committee on Athletics is intrusted with 
the general oversight of athletics, and is authorized to forbid 
any features in these exercises which endanger the health 
or morals of the participants, and to foster the true spirit of 
amateur sport among them. 

2. No student shall play upon the University athletic teains 
except after physical examination by the Director of the 
Gymnasium (or by a responsible expert officer of the Univer- 
sity acting in his stead and by his request) and with the 
approbation of the Director. 

3. Only students who act as regular or substitute members 
of the athletic teams will be granted leaves of absence to ac-

ing vacation and holidays. 

-(. Special reports inay be made to the President from time 
to time by any minor faculty with respect to the class-stand- 
ing and progress in study of each regular and substitute 
player on the athletic teams, and if the president and such 
faculty are convinced that the class-standing is discreditable, 
such student may be required to sever his connection with 
such team. 

5. The athletic teams should not have contests elsewhere 
than upon the university grounds with any except teams from 
other institutions of learning. 

6. Before any student can become a member or substitute 
member of any athletic team in the University and take part 
in any intercollegiate contest, he shall make application in a 
prescribed form in writing to the Faculty Committee on 
athletics, and secure the endorsed approval of the Coinmittec 
to his application. It shall be the duty of the Athletic Com- 
mittee to have the executive officers of the University endorse 
such application to the effect that the applicant is an uncon- 
ditionally registered student of the University. 

7. It shall be the duty of the Athletic Committee to inquire 
into and make a record of the athletic experiences of the ap- 
plicant, and it shall be the duty of the applicant to apjiear 
before the Committee and answer on his honor such questions 
as the Committee may see lit to ask. 

8. It shall be the duty of the Athletic Committee, before 
it endorses an application, to require a pledge in writing of 
the applicant certifying on his honor that he has never re- 
ceived directly or indirectly remuneration, compensaltory 
gift, valuable consideration, or the promise thereof for or 
on account of his athletic services, and that he is in the prop- 
er and strict sense of the word an amateur athlete. 

9. No student who has been a member or a su1)stitute 
member of a football or a baseball team of another college 
or University shall be permitted to become a member of 
either team of this University during his first session; but 
in no case shall such student be eligible for these teams at 
this University unless he shall have been a student here at 
least five months. The above provision shall also apply to all 
students who enter this university with less than 10 units. 

10. No person whose name appears in the catalogue list 
of officers of instruction and administration of the University 
and who receives remuneration therefrom, shall be a member 
of any athletic team representing the University. 

11. It shall be the duty of the President of the Athletic 
Association, the Executive Committee of the Association, 
the Manager and the Captain of the team concerned, the Di- 
rector of the Gymnasium, the Associate Director of Ath- 
letics, the Treasurer of the Association, to furnish on request,

15. No student of this University shall be eligible for any 
athletic team who shall have played upon or been a member 
or substitute member of any of the professional or league 
teams named in classes A, B, C, and D, in the publication of 
the American Sports Company. To the list of professional 
teams thus prescribed shall be added all league teams in any 
state or states, which the leading University of such state 
or states declares professional and from which it debars its 
own players. 

16. The terin "college" as used in the Faculty Regulations 
concerning athletics is hereby interpreted to mean any college 
named in Table 28 of the Report of the U. S. Commissioner 
of Education. In case such faculty fails to distinguish be- 
tween students of collegiate and preparatory grade, the presi- 
dent of the college concerned shall be requested to render 
or to authorize an official decision of the members belonging 
to each head. 

17. The term "substitute" is interpreted to mean a student 
who has taken part in an intercollegiate contest. 

18. The Faculty Committee on .\thletics is directed to as- 
sume responsible charge of the details of the athletic situation 
and to permit the playing of intercollegiate games with such 
colleges only as express a general conformity with the code of 
rules adopted by this faculty. The term "general conformity" 
is interpreted to mean conformity in regard to period of 
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 
the years of baseball and football shall both be taken into 
account ; but in no case shall a player be charged with four 
years' athletic work, unless at least four calendar years have 
elapsed from the time he entered upon his inter-collegiate 
contest omitting from the calculation any sessional inter- 
mission by non-attendance. In case the player does not par- 
ticipate 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 the football team during any inter- 



mediate session, this shall count as if the player had played 
on both teams during such session. 


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. 


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 



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. 


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- 
coifer, outfielder. 

"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 
the diamond. 

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. 


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.

In the most interesting game of the schedule to date 
.Carolina defeated Guilford in Greensboro January 
30th by the score of 23 to 22. At the end of the 
second half the score stood 22 to 22. For five extra 



minutes the game was continnerl without another 
score. Guilford missed two chances to score from 
fouls. With three seconds to play Guilford fouled 
and Captain Lon.g threw the decisive goal. The de- 
fensive work of Johnson and Teunant was an imjjort- 
ant part.

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- 
ern universities. 

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 
Whedbee served as Secretary. The following mem- 
bers of the Board were present: Governor Locke 
Craig, Charles Whedbee, L. T. Hartsell, J. C. Pritch- 
ard, J. S. Carr, H. A. Loudon, Victor S. Bryant,

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 
1, 1914. 

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, 



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 
Georgia Club.'' 


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. 


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. 


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.

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 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. 
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 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 



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

W. S. BERNARD. '00. Alumni Edito 

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. 


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 
with W. S. Bernard. Chairman of Committee on Class Re- 
unions. Chapel Hill. N. C. 


Two new associations have been organized since Univer- 
sity Day: The Macon County Alumni Association at Franklin.

and the Gaston County Alumni Association at Gastonia, A. G. 
Mangum. '93. president, and E. R. Rankin, '13. secretary. 


On Wednesday. Dec. 31, the Alumni of Macon County held 
a banquet at the home of Mr. J. S. Robinson, of Franklin, 
and organized the Macon County Alumni Association of the 
University of North Carolina. Mr. F. S. Johnston, of the 
Franklin bar, presided as toastmaster. 

Officers of the permanent association were elected as fol- 
lows: President, S. H. Lyle, Jr., '08; Secretary, R. D. Sisk. 
'04; Treasurer, S. L. Franks. Other alumni present were: 
F. S. Johnston, Law '93, T. J. Johnston, ex-'96. Law '99, 
Harry F. Barnard, '04, J. R. Sloan, '12, H. T. Sloan, '14,

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. 
Carpenter, Carl Carpenter, G. B. Mason, E. C. Adams, Carl 
Finger, J. Robert Craig, C. N. Smith, Will Wetzell, Fred 
Wetzell, Leslie Reid, W. K. Reid, Ralph Patrick, O. P. 
Rhyne, E. R. Rankin, D. P. Dellinger, Thad Clinton, Roland 
Clinton, Oscar Shannon, of Gastonia, J. H. Workman, Joe 
Nixon, Horace Sisk, of Cherryville, Floyd Whitney, J. H. 
Ramseur, R. H. Rowe, R. PL Garren, of Bessemer City, J. 
W. Reid, P. P. Murphy, of Lowell, Ed. C. Ray, McAdenville. 
C. B. Hoke, of Lenoir; E. E. Witherspoon, representing The 
Progress, and J. W. Atkins, representing the Gazette. 


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. 



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 
traveling expenses. 

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 
Rev. N. H. D. Wilson, 'Sfj; Mr. Don C. Humphrey, '06, on 
the value of the University Extension; Mr. K. C. Royall, 
'14, in behalf of the Wayne County Club at the University 
for co-operation on the part of the Wayne Alumni.

casion was an altogether delightful one, and the State came 
into the possession of a thoroughly modern and handsome 
administration building.

have worked to eft'ect the end achieved, no one has been more 
persistent and effective than the secretary of the Historical

and all others who aided in the cause are to be congratulated 
for the new home of the State Library, the Historical Com-

—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."

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
