THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
INTERNATIONAL The occasion wliicli recently wit-
GOOD WILL nessed the meeting here of two
exchange professors from foreign,
countries to the United States could do no less than
quicken one's consciousness of the new era in inter-
national communication of ideas. Such an occasion
is something more than educationally significant ;
indeed, there is about it an air of historical signifi-
cance. The one visitor was Dr. Shosuke Sato, the third
of the American-Japanese exchange professors, who
was at the time giving a course of lectures here;
the other was Dr. Karl Kathgen, the eighth incumbent
of the Kaiser Wilhelm exchange professorship. It
happened — though in this era of international com-
munication the hajjpening cannot justly be described
as accidental — that Dr. Kathgen was for eight years
(1882-1890) professor of political science at the Im-
perial University in Tokyo, Japan. iSTo longer can
roll trippingly under the tongue, in face of such a
conjuncture, the familiar lines of Kipling:
■■' East is East, and West is West,
And never the twain shall meet."
For such a meeting, nowadays, symbolizes the arrival
of the cosmopolitan spirit which has already set its
mark upon the face of this century.
During Dr. Sato's visit here, attention was called
conspicuously to the memorable fact that it was under
the regime of a son of this University as Secretary of
the Navy, William A. Graham, that was prepared
Commodore Perry's expedition to Japan in 1853
which, as the lecturer himself graciously observed,
marked the beginning of the era in which the real
Japan has emerged from international obscurity into
the charmed circle of world-powers. In this day of
Mexican imbroglios, exclusion acts, and rumors of
Japanese designs, i't is refreshing to have the air once
more cleared with the message of peace, good-will,
and friendship brought by Dr. Sato. And to an
audience of typical Americans, profoundly interested
in problems of political economy, it is invigorating
and enlightening to hear the pregnant declaration of
Dr. Eathgen that stability in trade relations among
the great industrial and manufacturing nations, com-
peting for place in world-markets, and not the ideal-
istic utterances of the perfervid orator, is the true
guaranty for the maintenance of world-peace.
Assuredly the time has come to raise the vital
question whether the nations of the world are not
sufticiently versed in the arts of self-control to cease
preying upon and oppressing one anotJher. In order
to live together as " fellow-sharers in a world's civili-
zation," it is imperative for nations in their cor-
porate capacity to exercise the fundamental princi-
ples of morality which the individual citizen so ar-
dently professes. It is peculiarly needful for Ameri-
cans, in the hour of a grave international crisis, to
ponder these things. For, as Dr. Nicholas Murray
Butler has recently said, " We Americans need the
international mind as much as any people ever need-
ed it. We shall never be able to do justice to our
better selves or to take our true part in the modem
world until we acquire it. We must learn to sup-
press rather than exalt those who endeavor, whether
through ignorance, selfishness, or malice, to stir up
among us antagonism to other nations and to other
peoples. If we are to take the place which many of
us have fondly hoped America would take, at the
very forefront of the movement for the establishment
of a world peace based upon even-handed justice, we
must first learn to rule our tongues and to turn deaf
ears to those who, from time to time, endeavor to lead
us away from the i>ath of international rectitude and
international honor with false cries of a pseudo-pa-
The visit of such picked men as Dr. Sato and Dr.
Kathgen has a two-fold significance. To-day, they
convey to us the results of the most advanced knowl-
edge and refined research in regard to the conditions
and problems of their respective countries. Tomorrow
they will convey to 'their respective countries the im-
pression of the trained observer in regard to the
United States, her spirit, her people, her institu-
tions. This reciprocal relation can only result in
benefit to both the nations, the one which sends and
the one which receives ; and this is guaranteed by the
quality and high principles of the men chosen to fill
this exceedingly important position. A deepening
and broadoiing of the streams of world-culture,
the discouragement of strife between nations, the
stimulation of friendly rivalry in trade relations in
the markets of the world, the cultivation and foster-
ing of the international spirit — these consequences,

benefits accrue, in God's good time, from the ex-
change of these ministers of good will. — A. H.
THE LOCAL Jn many towns in ISTorth Carolina
ASSOCIATION there are groups of alumni who are
not organized into a local alumni
association. This, obviously, should not be; for a
properly organized association not only brings the
alumni together for an occasional social evening, but
promotes the welfare of ;the University and increases
the influence for good of its members in the com-
Organization in and of itself is of no special value.
T!he association must work for something. It must
have some definite purpose. Fortunately the field of
activity is wide. The association can
(1) Keep potentially alive and active the power
represented by the local association.
(2) Keep the General Association informed con-
cerning the attitude of the people toward the Uni-
(3) Bring before and keep before the people of
the community correct ideas concerning the work and
purposes of the University.
(4) Support the work of the General Association
for the University by co-operating heartily with it.
(5) Keep the alumni informed as to the activ-
ities of the members of the local association through
(6) Keep in touch with promising young men
who should have an opportunity to secure a college
education, and help them to secure it.
(7) Take an active interest in co-operating with
the Bureau of Extension and help to make its work
effective among the people of the locality.
(8) Devote time and energy to local affairs, par-
The alumni of the University scattered throughout
the State constitute the best argument for or against
the sujjport which it receives from the public. Upon
the local association falls, in large part, the responsi-
bility of determining whether this argument shall be
favorable or unfavorable to alma mater.
FOR EXAMPLE Qn Friday, March 20, the State-
wide contest for the Aycock Me-
morial Clip projected by the High School Debating
Union will be held in one hundred and fifty towns list-
ed elsewhere in the Review. This occasion, which is a
development of thei work of the Dialectic and Philan-
thropic Societies extended to the High Schools of
Xortli Carolina, will furnish the alumni a specific
object in which it is important that they interest
themselves. There are several things which they can
do to make the contests successful. They can give
them publicity. They can attend as individuals or
in a body. In the event that both the local teams
win, they can aid them in planning for the trip to
'Chapel Hill. Whatever the outcome, they can rally
to the support of the University in its effort to mag-
nify the importance of vital public discussion in
every nook and cranny in North Carolina.
Commencement this year begins on
Sunday, May 31st, and ends on Wed-
nesday, June 3rd. The address on
Wednesday will be made by Secretaiy of Commerce,
W. C. Redfield. The Baccalaureate sermon will be
jjreached by Dr. Edgar P. Hill, of Chicago, and the
Y. M. ,C. A. sermon by Dr. 0. E. Brown, of Nash-
ville, Tenn. This is a group of notably fine speakers.
Each of them is a man who has something to say and
knows how to say it. Their pi-esence gives assurance
that the high standard of past commencements will be
splendidly ui^held. The main feature of the 1914
commencement, however, will be the alumni them-
selves. This is to be a Home-coming Commencement
and everybody is coming. Two of the classes that
hold reunions — 1904 and 1909 — have been at work
for sometime with the idea of getting ercnj member
hacl\ There is every indication that on June 3rd,
1914, the campus will hold the greatest gathering of
Carolina men in its history.
IMPORTANT Dates of importance to the University
DATES and the public, which is invited to the
Hill, are those for the forthcoming
lectures on March 25, by Alfred Noyes, tlie English
poet, and President Vincent of the University Minne-
sota, the deliverer of the McJSTair lectures for 1914,
April 15-18. Interest in hearing these distinguished
visitors is widespread among the student body, hav-

SHALL NORTH CAROLINA INITIATE AND REFER?
Thirty Thousand Tar Heels Will Have to Decide the Question March Twentieth
Shall the Constitution of North Carolina be so
aniende<l as to allow the Initiative ami Referendum
in State- wide legislation ^ This question will he dis-
cussed on ilarch 20th hy six liundi-ed student-de-
haters in the one hundred and fifty schools having
membership in the High School Debating Union, and
the discussions will be listened to with interest by
fully thirty thousand ?fortli ^Carolinians. Erom

in the East, to Asheville, Heiidersonville, Brj'son

everywhere, in every section of the State, getting
ready for this gigantic struggle in debate.
The High School Debating Union is carried on un-
iler the auspices of the Dialectic and Philanthropic
Literary Societies and the Bureau of Extension of
the University. A large amount of material on the
question to be discussed, including one sixty-page
Extension Series publication, and several thousand
■Congressional speeches and documents, has been sent
to the schools free of charge. Doubtless on the 20th
of March more intelligent consideration and lively
discussion will be given to the " Initiative and Refer-

school puts out two teams, one on the affirmative, and
the other on the negative. The affirmative team de-

(►ther school of the same triangle. Thus a debate is
held at every school on the same date. Every school

WHAT THE NEW YORK ALUMNI DO WHEN PLAYTIME COMES
Two University alumni who dwell in New York
City were discussing, recently, the recreations of
other members of itheir colony ; and, as a result, one
of the two had the whim to find out just how the
University of North Carolina men in the metropolis
actually did spend their time when off duty. He made
the inquiry, and he learned this fact : thalt the recre-
ations of the alumni, for the most part, were not such
as pertained to city life any more than to life in the
country or the small town. Theatregoing, which is
ordinarily ;thought of as the favorite form of pleasure
in a city, ranks first with none of them; it is merely
a " filler-in."
The New Yorker, though, has this advantage over
him who lives in a rural or semi-rural section, that a
wide variety of sports and amusements is open to
him. In fact it has often been remarked that, even
among cities of the first class. New York's situation
is remarkable in this respect. The sea is only half an
hour or so away from the center of the city; the Hud-
son, the East Eiver and the Harlem River are close
at hand for the rowers and canoeists ; there are hun-
dreds of tennis courts in the city and the nearby sub-
urbs; golf courses flourish on every side, and more
are being built all (the time ; miles and miles of
smooth roads are open to automobilists; numberless
amateur organizations find a place for football and
baseball matches; in Central Park, Van Cortlandt
Park, Prospect Park and on Staten Island are ponds
and lakes for the skaters ; it is only a short journey to
ithe trout streams in New Jersey and New York State ;
and, in these dance-mad days, there are literally thou-
sands of places where one may exhibit his grace, or
the lack thereof, at the hesitation waltz, the one-step,
the tango and the other new-fangled steps. (By the
Itime this appears in print, there will doubtless be an
entirely new list.)
These things for those who want to participate.
For those who merely want to look on, of course,
there are the football games in the city or in easy
reach, the tennis and polo and hockey tournaments,
Ithe Big League baseball games both in New York and
Brooklyn, the " movies," the concerts and the opera,
and theatres and music halls without end.
Then there are the social diversions that are about
the same everywhere — dinners, bridge parties, and the
like — and the University alumni are active in tha't
direction. One form of amusement, if by courtesy
it may be called such, is the public or semi-public
dinner. Probably there was never such a place as
New York for dinners and after-dinner oratory. Be-
fore one has lived many years in the city, even though
he lays no claim to being a " prominent citizen," the
question is noit how many he shall attend, but how
many he can escape.
Judge Augustus Van Wyck, the President of the
New York alumni association, though he is around
seventy years old now, is as vigorous and alert as a
youngster. He is an enthusiastic automobilist, and
enjoys looking at baseball games and polo matches.
George Gordon Battle is so busy in the law courts
that, in the winter be has little opportunity for out-
door recreation. In warm months, though, he plays
golf with great regularity; and throughout the year
he is a prominent figure in the social life of the city.
Dr. Charles Baskerville is another who is active in
society ; and he, too, is devoted to golf.
Perhaps golf is the spoiit which has the highest
favor among the New York alumni. Francis A.
Gudger, James A. Gwyn, Logan D. Howell, Louis G.

Eounti-ee, Bynum Glenn, Staples Fuller, P. D. Gold,
Jr., Frank Mebane, John M. Greenfield, Dr. W. D.
Price, Junius Parker, Lindsay Kussell, Thomas D.
Toy, Victor Whitlock — these are all devotees of the
game. It is second choice with Ealph H. Graves,
whose favorite diversion is fishing, and with Louis
Graves, who likes tennis best. Until recently it was
first with A. Marvin Carr, hult now, his friends de-
clare, Mr. Carr enjoys nothing so much as propelling
a baby carriage along the upper stretches of Park
and Fifth Avenues.
Thomas Hill, formerly of Hillsboro, is now partner
in a concern which conducts a number of public-tennis
courts on the Upper West Side; and, though he does
not claim to be an expert player, he has acquired an
extensive knowledge of the theory of the game. Some-
times, in his leisure hours, in the tennis season he may
be found diverting himself in the instruction of the
youths who patronize his courts.
Unquestionably the most enthusiastic tennis fol-
lower among the alumni is Preston Gumming. He has
a wide acquaintance among the crack players of the
country, and has made a good record in a number of
tournaments. Dr. Henry C. Cowles often plays with
his fellow-physicians on. the court adjacent to the
Woman's Hospital. Reston Stevenson is another
tennis entliusiast. And both he and Mr. Cumming are
experts at all kinds of water sports.
x\lfred W. Haywood, Jr., has perhaps the most
catholic itaste as far asdiversionsareconcerncd among
the alumni in New York. He is exceedingly fond of
tennis, which he plays two or three times a week in
the spring and summer; he goes swimming and ca-
noeing whenever the opportunity offers ; he plays golf
some; and recently, having joined Squadron A, New
York's crack cavalry organization, he has become a
skilful horseback rider. His brother, T. Holt Hay-
wood, is more attached to water sports than to any
other kind ; but in the closed winter season he goes in
Eufus L. Patterson is fond of auitomobiling, as are
Junius Parker, Dr. Charles Baskerville, Francis A.
Gudger, Herman Koehler, the Reverend St. Clair
Hester, Dr. Owen Kenan, George B. Wills, and
Frank Harty. Dr. George Mallett enjoys the various
sports offered by the JSTew York Athletic Club. Isaac
F. Harris rides horseback on the excellent roads of
Westchester County, dabbles with tennis and golf, and
is fond of dancing. With Don, Richardson music,
though it is work, stands first also as a recreation.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE MERCER-HURREY MEETINGS
E. C. Mercer and Charles D. Hurrey came into
the life of the University aud touched it at many
points of contact, talking straight from the shoulder
and raising the faith of men in God and in human
life. " Ted " Mercer, as he is affectionately known
in the universities of the East, is convicted with a
sense of message for college men. Like the Ancient
Mariner he must tell his story. He would burn into
the hearts of young men the fact of the evolution of
sin. When temptation charms and lures with its
pleasures in the subtle beginnings, Mercer challenges
the college man to look at the other end of the line.
You can't sow wild oats and get aw'ay with it. He
put his i^lea for a clean life on the basis of earning
capacity and highest eificiency and then showed the
way through Christ to a victorious fight for character.
To the three hundred freshmen present he said these
significant words : "When you are kidded by the older
men as being green in the things of life, tell them for
Ted Mercer that you had rather be green than be
rotten." Seven hundred men packed in Gerrard
Hall responded to the thought with spontaneous ap-
plause. Mr. Mercer delivered two addresses : " The
Fight of Every College Man — Purity," and " Down
and Out and Up Again." In the first address he
talked straight out on the facts of gambling, drink-
ing, and sexual impurity, both secret and social. Tt
was simple, practical, clean, and uplifting. In the
second address Mr. Mercer told the story of his life,
how he started in the ways of the crowd to be popu-
lar in college and ended in the gutter of New York
City. The story of his come back is both a warning
and an inspiration to young men. " Don't try it,
fellows, I would to God I had the chance to start in
college again — the scar remains."
Mr. Charles 1). Hurrej- was the directing force in
the two closing meetings. '' Men of Mettle " had the
ring of the upward fight ; and the final address, ''The
Challenge of Modern Religion to the Students in All
Lands," was charged with the struggles of college
men everywhere as they reached out for a larger and
deeper life. The speaker brought to bear a first hand
knowledge of life in Asia, the near East, and South
America. It was a splendid address in which was
caught the spirit of modern life astir the world
around. His j^icture of Christ, the central figure
in it all, was dynamic with power.
What of these meetings ? The student body has
been touched more than on the surface. The four
meetings averaged over five hundred men. Over two
hundred men followed Mr. Hurrey from Gerrard
Hall to the Y. M. C. A. auditorium for an after meet-
ing for practical suggestions on the way to win the
fight for character. One hundred and twenty-seven
men signed cards that they were taking advanced
ground in their moral and spiritual life. In the closing
meeting of the series over four hundred men came out
in the rain to hear Hurrey. Practically the whole
crowd remained for another short personal talk and
more than half stood up expressing a decision for a
more aggressive .Christian life. Ervin and Parker

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
and a dozen other positive minded men made short
talks expressing aggressive decision.
Mr. Mercer had a conference with Coach Maelv and
thirty men in the baseball squad on clean living and
its value to the athlete. Mr. Mercer and Mr. Hurrey
had a joint conference with the fraternitymen, em-
phasizing the big opportunity of fraternitymen in
standing for character, scholarship and the good
things on the campus. Mr. Hurrey had an interest-
ing meeting with the Jewish Society of the Univer-
sity. One of the most significant utterances during
the meetings came from Sam Newman., a Russian
Jew, who is now a hard student in the medical school.
Xewman got his ideas of Christianty from the cruelty
and rottenness of the ecclesiastical Greek machine in
Russia. It has been burned into his radical socialis-
tic heart by Russian persecution to hate the tyranny
of the Christian Church in his native land. Newman
was drawn, to the big friendly heart of Charlie Hur-
rey and saw that his Christianity was somethiug dif-
ferent. He stood up in the last meeting and said as a
loyal Hebrew, " ]\Ir. Mercer and ]\Ir. Hurrey have
shown me more clearly the ditference between church-
anity and Christianity." Mr. Hurrey made short
cheering talks to the Jewish Society, the rural Sun-
day school workers, to the Bible group leaders, and
to the workers in the night school for colored peo-
ple. The greatest good, perhaps, was accomplished
by the iJersonal interviews that ^Mr. fiercer and [Mr.
Hurrey had with more than two score men troubled
with life problems, temptations, and intellectual
doubts. Mr. Hurrey in staying over for the Satur-
day night meeting had to ride all the way to Raleigh
in a machine on a rough night of slush and rain to
catch a midnight train for Xew York where he joined
John. R. Mott in conducting one of the most remark-
able campaigns ever attempted anmiLg college men
in America. With him and ^ifercer went the warm
hearts of Carolina men.
Whatever else was done or not done by these meet-
ings, certain pictures have come down in more than
one room in college.
PUBLIC DISCUSSION AND DEBATE
With the object of stimulating public discussion
and debate in civics clubs and schools in North Caro-
lina, the Bureau of Extension has just issued a sixty-
page bulletin bearing the above title.
While the bulleitin is intended primarily to serve
as a handbook for use by schocfls in the formation and
conduct of literary societies, it is also intended that
it shall serve a similar purpose for rural communities
and villages which may care to form clubs for the
discussion of problems incident to their economic,
social, educational, and religious upbuilding. By
whomsoever used, it is intended 'to be a practical, use-
ful handbook provocative of intelligent interest in the
(pitistions demanding solution in North Carolina to-
The bulletin contains six distinct divisions. The
first discusses the importance of debate and gives prac-
tical suggestions for the organization and conduct of
school and community societies. The second outlines
the formal steps to be taken in argumentation and
brief making. The third presents a model brief and
complete references on one query and more or less
complete outlines, with extended references, to eleven
other subjects. Among these are taxation, good roads,
compulsory education, child labor, the commission
]dan of city government, j^rison reform, race segre-
gation, co-operation among farmers, and engineering
assistance for counties. The initiative and referen-

diim, woman suffrage, and recall of judges are also
included in this division.
The fourth division is devoted (to the statement of
fifty other queries, of which thirty deal almost entire-
ly with North Carolina questions. For these no
outlines or references are given, but in the fifth di-
vision an extended list of other debate handbooks and
curremt weekly and monthly newspajDers and maga-
zines is given, and sources are indicated, such as the
University Library and the North Carolina Library

The following authorized statement of the finances
of the Athletic Association of the University has been
furnished University publications by Graduate Man-
ager Woollen. It will be noted that while it appears
in a form somewhat different from the estimated
statement appearing in the December issue of the
Eeview, there is but slight difference in the two
totals indicated — a difference of less than $200. It
should be kept clearly in mind that this statement
represents the financial condition of the istudent
Athletic Association with which the alumni are fa-
miliar and is not in any way to be confused with the
special alumni athletic committee of which George
Stephens is chairman and James A Gray, Jr., is
treasurer, and \vhich is responsible for the alumni
system of coaching and the administration of the
Athletic Store. The statement shows an increased
indebtedness of $1,197.77 at the end of the fall term
over that at the beginning. The statement covers
the dates Septemher 1, 1913, to January 27, 1914.

The basketball season has run au up and down

did not have the reach of the tall Virginians and
could only look up as the Raleigh crowd looked on.
With Johnson going fast at centre Carolina made
it two straights from Guilford by the score of 38 to

Dowd shot goals with easy accuracy.
Wake Forest came back and took the deciding
game in. a close and exciting contest. Chambers per-

Long excelled in goal tossing but Holding's passing
on fouls was a decisive feature of the game. This

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
European Dkamatists. By Arcliibald Henderson.
'Cincinnati: Stewart and Kidd Company, 1913.
In all that Dr. Henderson writes there is the ring
of subtle thought, wide reading, and equally wide
generalizajtion. He pi'efers and has always preferred
frontier themes and frontier (thinkers, — those that
challenge the critic's power to interpret and to cor-
relate. As a thinker he shows on every page the ad-
vantage of a rigid training in higher mathematics,
and as a writer he has so focused his attention upon
the modern drama that his reach and vogue are more
than national. In spite of the remarkable achieve-
ment already to his credit, my own, feeling about him
is that something greater is yet to come, — a feeling
tha4; I do not have in reading Ches)terton or Huneker,
with whom one instinctively compares him.
The present volume falls naturally into three parts :
The essay on Strindberg is new; the treatment of
Ibsen, Maeterlinck, Wilde, and Shaw is essentially
that of Dr. Henderson's former volume. Interpreters
of life, and the Modern Spirit; while the last essay,
that on Granville Barker, though it has appeared in
English and French, differentiates itself sharply in
style and method from those that precede it.
Public opinion has hardly begun to crystallize
about Strindberg, but the outlines of the man's life
and character and distinctive achievement are here
firndy sketched on a broad canvas. In style, however,
this essay seems to me to fall below the other five. The
introductory paragrai>hs \vill, we feai", bar many a
reader instead of enticing him. The essay does not
leave the impression of having been as finely fused in
the author's mind as were the other sketches. The
subject, it is true, was one of rare difficulty; but the
language, instead of being marked by studied sim-
plicity and economy, seems at times to writhe help-
lessly about its thought. Instead of saying, as Dr.
Henderson would say elsewhere, that Strindberg
now " began to hate women," he says that he " began
to be obsessed with the monomania of animadversion,
against the female sex " (p. 26). And yet, but a few
Images further on, one meets a sentence as memorable
in its originality and simplicity as this : " Life with
him was a form of excuse for art." That sentence,
elaborated clearly and concretely, would make a com-
pelling introduction or a compelling conclusion to the
entire essay. This short sentence means far more to
me than to know that Strindberg was " antipodal to
the reflective and anemic mollycoddle" (p. 29), or
that his method was the " method of focal concentra-
tion, of magnification of interest through inten-
siveness of treatment" (p. 56), or that his trilogy
To Damascus blurs the vision " with its kinetoscopic
heterogeneity of spiritual films " (p. 70), or that he
was " obsessed with 'the chimera of exaggerated ego-
ism, the delusion of referential ideas " (p. 71).
The essay, in other words, does not seem to have
been re-read at a sitting. The quotation from Words-
worth on page 5, like the quotation from Browning on
page 153 and from Shakespeare on page 155, is
strangely inaccurate, and would hardly have escaped
a careful re-reading. We are told also on page 19
that, if Strindberg became a pessimist, '' his was a
pessimism not of disillusionment but of contempla-
tion." The point is an important one if true, but in at
least five other passages Dr. Henderson affirms or im-
]dies directly the contrary. Thus on page 29 : "Here, as
elsewhere, Strindberg reveals himself the disillusioned
idealist ;" and on page 33 : " It is indubitable that
Strindberg finally reached the stage of disillusion-
ment." On page 35 he speaks of '' Strindberg's life
of disillusion " and on page 52 declares : " It was
the tragedy of Strindberg's life never to rise above the
sex-disillusionment which came from early excess."
The four succeeding chapters make an interesting
stitdy in the development of Dr. Henderson's style.
I have compared ithem closely with the corresponding
chapters in his Interpreters of Life, a book which I
have read many times with increasing pleasure and

profit and loaned as many times to students. The
additions and omissions are comparatively slight, the
chief dilTerence being that Dr. Henderson shows a
gi-owing confidence in the carrying power of English
when pitted against the tongues of Europe. Thus
"milieu" is changed in the later volume to "sur-
roundings " or " scene " or " setting," " Wille zur
Macht" to "Will to Power," "in petto" to "in
little," "/(' vie inierieure" to "the inner life,'"
" the most significant of ithe differentiae " to
" the most significant distinction," " couleur locale "

come," "stifjmnta" to "defects," "the raison d'etre
of " to " the reason for," " the quintessential secret
of his debacle " to " tJie secret of his do'mifall,"
"' utter paradoxical blague " to " talk paradoxical
stuff," " for Wilde la lutte pour la vie became increas-
ingly diflicult " to " it became increasingly difficult
for Wilde to earn a living," " melange " to " mix-
ture," " peche de jeunesse " to " youthful indiscre-
tion/' "interminable longueurs" to "interminable
passages," " d la Balzac " to " according to Bal-
zac," ■' le beau dans I'horrible " to " the beau-
tiful in the horrible," " I'ox clamantis in deserto "
to " the voice crying in ithe wilderness," " la

grace," " leit motifs " to " leading motives,"
" tour de force " to " startling climax," " pe-
culiarly marked by the stigmata of naturalism" to
" associated with naturalism in art," " rare quality
of divertissement " to " rare quality as a purveyor of
intellectual pleasure." "qua" to "considered as,"
" idle and luxurious as an aesthetic faineant " to " an
aesthetic and luxurious idler," " maestria " to " mas-
tery,'" " epater le bourgeois" to "shock the average in-
telligence," " ballons d'essai " to " plays of fancy."
This wholesale elimination does not mean that Dr.
Henderson has decided to forego the foreign phrase :
it means, as I unders;tand it, that no foreign phrase
need apply unless its credentials are better than the
credentials of the corresponding English phrase.
A still further simplification is seen in 'the last
chapter, that on Granville Barker. Beaders of Dr.
Henderson's George Bernard Sltaw, which appeared
in 1911, will recall the handsome portrait of Mr.
Barker, facing page 368, and the footnote on the same
page promising that " in a subsequent volume, deal-
ing with Ithe dramatic movement inaugurated by ^Ir.
Shaw, the production of his plays at the Court The-
atre will be fully discussed." This essay seems to be
a partial fulfillment of the footnote. As Mr. Barker
has wi'itten nothing since the appearance of The
Madras House in 1910, a year before Dr. Henderson
published his gi'eat work on Shaw, the space thait
would have been given to Mr. Barker's later plays is
given to the Court Theatre. " The Stage Society,"
says Dr. Henderson, " has played in England, though
in a somewhat less conspicuous way, the role which
has been played on the continent by the Theatre Libre,
L'CEuvre, and the Freie Biihne. From iit came
Bernard Shaw — and Granville Barker — soon to be
united in an enterprise at the Court Theatre which is
without a parallel in the history of the English stage.
From that fecund school of drama came also the late
St. John Hankin, a dramatisit of rare promise, and
Mr. John Galsworthy, the author of the original and
powerful dramas. Strife and Justice."
In mastery of the facts, which are known to but
few, and in ease and clearness of expression, this
chapter leaves nothing to be desired. The book as a
whole is a distinct addition to our knowledge of the
modern European dramatists and deserves a wide
reading not only by students of the drama but by all
those who would approach intelligently the complex
problems of modern society. — C. Alphoxso Smith.

DR. KARL RATHGEN SHOWS THE TRUE BASIS
The University has recently been honored by the
presence of a distinguished guest. Dr. Karl Rathgen,
of the Colonial Institute, Hamburg, Germany, and
Kaiser Wilhelm Exchange Professor of Political Eco-
nomy at Columbia University. Dr. Rathgen has re-
cently given a course of lectures at Columbia oh "The
Economic Problems of Germany;" and in addition to
conducting a seminar, he has also delivered a course
of lectures in German under the auspices of the new
Deutsches Haus on " The Origin and Aims of Ger-
many's Colonial Policy." Dr. Rathgen accejated an
invitation to come here and lecture before the Uni-
versity, during his tour of the South, which will carry
him as far as Panama. His lecture here, which was
in the highest degree interesting and instructive, con-
cerned itself with some economic problems of the
Germans of today. With a facility in using the
English language which was nothing short of re-
markable, and a masterly command of the most intri-
cate array of economic and industrial statistics, the
lecturer portrayed the mutual actions and interactions
of agriculture and industry in Germany in the past
few decades. Intensive development of Germany's ag-
ricultural resources finally reaching its limit, there
necessarily ensued a tremendous quickening and de-
velopment of the manufacturing industries. As a
result of the competition of Germany with the world,
the lecturer showed how and why Germany has won
and held the position of generally acknowledged lead-
ership. Basing hisiargument upon an impressive series
of incontrovertible facts, he drew the inevitable con-
clusion that the great manufacturing countries are
mutually their own best customers. '' International
competition is the life of international trade." The
cause of one is the cause of all. The solidarity and
mutual trade interests of individual nations are the
real factors which conduce to the maintenance of
DR. SATO INTERPRETS JAPAN TO AMERICA
Dr. Soshuke Sato, President of the Agricultural
College of Tohoku University, Japan, visited the
University February 9-18, and gave a series of five
lectures under the auspices of the Carnegie Endow-
ment for International Peace. The subjects of the
addresses were : February 9, " From Old Feudalism
to New Imperialism ;" February 10, "Social Changes
and Reforms Since the Restoration;" February 11,
" Local Autonomy and Constitutional Government ;"
February 16, " Agricultural Credits and Rural Soci-
ology;" February 18, "Educational Systems and
Religious Movements." While a guest of the Uni-
versity, Dr. Sato filled an engagement at Charlotte
before the Manufacturers' Club.
Dr. Sato received his post graduate training at
Johns Hojikins University, has been a careful stu-
dent and keen observer of national life, and brought
to the interested University circle a message mark-
edly instructive and provocative of international
friendshii^. During his stay at the University, he
was accompanied by his secretary, Mr. Ileckleman,
a missionary to Japan at home in America on vaca-
tion, who also spoke before the Y. M. C. A. and the
student body on the religious life of Japan.

JUDGE WELLS THOMPSON
Judge Wells Thompson, '59, died at his home in Bay City,
Matagorda County, Texas, during the morning of Saturday,
January 17. igi4, at the age of "6 years, one month and
Judge Thompson graduated from the University of North
Carolina in the class of 1859 and later entered the Law School
of the University of Georgia at Athens, where he was at the
beginning of the War between the States, and where he en-
listed for twelve months in an artillery company. Having
served his term of enlistment he went to Thermopolis, Ala.,
where he was born December 12, 1837, and joined in the en-
listment of Company I, 36th .'Kla. Infantry, of which he was
elected captain, and with which he served in the Army of
Tennessee, participating in all its battles, until it was sur-
rendered under General Joseph E. Johnston, at Greensboro,
N. C, April 26, 1865.
When a small boy. Judge Thompson removed with his
parents to Matagorda County, Texas, where he grew to man-
hood, and which was his home during his college days. After
the surrender he returned to his home at Columbus, Texas,
and began life anew. Possessed of great power as a forceful
and effective speaker, he was thrown to the front in the terri-
ble political conflict with the carpet-bag government of Texas,
canvassing the entire State, before the days of railroads. In
1871 he was the candidate of his party for Lieutenant Gov-
ernor of Texas, and though elected was counted out, but
the fight made by Judge Thompson and others, sealed the
doom of the party in power, which two years later received
its Waterloo, from which it has never recovered. At that
election Judge Thompson was again elected Lieutenant Gover-
nor, serving as such through the administration of Governor
(). M. Roberts. He was elected State Senator in 1876, and
President of the Senate, was again elected Lieutenant Gover-
nor in 1878, was the codifier of the Texas laws in 189s, and
at the time of his death, and for several terms prior thereto,
served as Judge of the 23rd Judicial District of Texas.
Judge Thompson was a member of the Episcopal Church.
He was married late in life, and his widow survives him, with

It is the purpose of this department not only to publish all
timely tacts 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.
