THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
GOING J n the February number, under the
FORWARD title "The President's Report," the
Review cited various instances in
which the University had shown unmistakable evi-
dences of increased power and expanding usefulness
to North Carolina. The feeling which the reading
of the report in full produced was that the current
of Carolina's life was running deep and strong. In
the brief thirty days between MarchlSth and April
15th, other events have so added to the total of this
impression that it has become a firm conviction. The
University is drawing nearer to the people whom it
was established to serve, and is being strengthened at
its very heart.
THE DEBATE T t is generally conceded that North
CONTEST Carolinians have a genius for argu-
ment and debate. That is not saying,
however, that the opportunity for the development of
this genius has been adequately given those who
possessed it. In reality, this opportunity has, except
in a very limited way, been withheld, until the Uni-
versity extended the facilities of its societies and
Library to the high schools and public generally of
North Carolina. The result of this extension this
year, if statistics may be relied upon to tell an accu-
rate story, has been the holding of a state-wide series
of debates in which 150 high schools participated on
March 20th, in which at least 1,000 boys and girls
debated either in competition for places on teams or
on the teams themselves, in which fully 40,000 North
Carolinians heard the pros and cons of the initiative
and referendum clearly presented, and in which 164
winners in the preliminary contests spoke in Univer-
sity halls on April 2nd and 3rd for the coveted Ay-
cock Memorial Cup. Building upon the success of
la-t year, the University, through Mr. E. R. Rankin,
the Secretary of the Debating Union, has made per-
manent the annual contest which of necessity must
be the training camp of the flower of North Carolina
high schools in the accurate study and helpful discus-
sion of problems with which the State today stands
face to face.
During the Summer of 1913 more than
A. B. AND
A - M - 2,000 North Carolina teachers attend-
DEGREES ct i Summer Schools. At least five
hundred of these went outside of the
State. Of the remaining 1,500, an even one third at-
tended the Summer session of the University, and the
Review believes that the University under the limita-
tions imposed upon it, served them splendidly. How-
ever, as brought out in a previous issue, and as indi-
cated in this issue in a letter from Superintendent
Archer, of the Selma schools, the University offered
a very limited number of courses and these led only
to certificates of attendance and, in some few in-
stances, to certificates of credit for entrance into the
University. While affording an opportunity for the
thorough study of subjects required in the high school
and for the acquisition of knowledge of methods in
class room and school management, the curriculum
did not contain advanced courses leading to the A. B.
and A. M. degrees and inciting teachers to work in
the higher branches through a number of years. At
its last faculty meeting in March, the University up-
on the report of a special committee on the curri-
culum of the Summer School, in an effort to remedy
this defect, authorized the accrediting of work done
in twenty-two courses to be offered in the Summer
school of 1914 towards the two degrees mentioned.
The taking of this first step furnishes a second evi-
dence of the University's moving forward in its effort
to render the maximum service to the State.
GOOD ROADS Although the State press had but little
INSTITUTE to say concerning the good roads con-
ference held at the University, March
17-19, under the joint direction of the North Caro-
lina Geological and Economic Survey and the depart-
ments of Geology and Civil Engineering of the Uni-
versity, an unusually helpful program, in which
fifty mad engineers and contractors participated, was
carried out. In this meeting every resource of the
University which could be of service in the tremen-
dously important work of highway construction was
placed at the disposal of the highway builders. Al-
though a new field, the University entered it con-
fidently, determined to say the helpful word on this

vital subject in so far as it was capable of saying it.

the Hill an annual event,
REUNIONS, LETTERS, Reunion plans, letters, notes,

ned by the Alumni Council are
other straws which have indicated the direction of the
wind. The Review, to borrow an expression from
the political platform maker, ''points with pride'' to
the "getting together" idea evidenced by the clarion
calls on the part of reunion committees to classmates
to be present at the Home-Coming Commencement
of 1914; by letters from the younger alumni on sub-
jects vital to the University other than athletics; by
the increasingly larger number of personal notes re-
ceived by the editors from individual alumni ; and by
the action of the Alumni Council, an account of which
is found on another page, looking to a closer co-opera-
tion between the Alumni Association and the Univer-
sity in the latter's expanding work.

the recent gambling incident, the after-

Before the newspaper correspondent had turned
on the "yellow" which he mistook for the light, the
student body out of the vigor of its inner life, had

The college sense of newspaper injustice grew out
of that higher loyalty than patriotism — loyalty to the

that the people of North Carolina love the truth as
much as they hate gambling !
CAROLINA'S J n an article in the current number of
TRUSTEE the University Magazine, Mr. W. P.
SYSTEM Fuller gives a careful study of .Caro-
lina's trustee system. To his very
great amazement Mr. Fuller finds that Carolina has
more trustees than any other state university in the
world, having more in fact than the state universities
of Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Idaho,
Kansas, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota,
Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and West
Virginia — fourteen states — combined. He also
finds that the tendency of trustees is to meet at
the seats of the universities rather than at
distant cities, and that members of the boards, with
the exception of those of North and South Carolina,
are elected by other agencies than the legislature. A
further discovery made by Mr. Fuller is that while
other states formerly having systems similar to that
of Carolina have undergone marked changes — that no
change whatsoever has been made in Carolina's sys-
tem in forty odd years.
GOOD ROADS INSTITUTE
A Good Roads Institute for road engineers, road
superintendents, engineering students, and all inter-
ested in better roads, was held at the University on
March 17-19, under the auspices of the North Caro-
lina Geological and Economic Survey and the De-
partment of Civil and Highway Engineering of the
University. The purpose of the Institute, that it
should serve as a clearing house for road building
problems in the State, was aptly expressed by Dr.
Joseph Hyde Pratt, who acted as chairman of the
The subjects considered were practical problems
connected with the location, construction, and mainte-
nance of roads. The informal discussions which fol-
lowed each lecture and demonstration added much in-
terest and practical value to the program.
A great deal of interest was manifested in all the
meetings. There were in attendance, besides students
and citizens of Orange County, forty-five visitors,
most of whom were engineers and superintendents
from twenty-two counties, as far east as New Hanover
and as far west as Madison.
At the close of the Institute, the following resolu-
tions were voted upon unanimously by the visitors:
(1.) Resolved, That we wish to express our thanks
and appreciation to the Engineering and Geological
Departments of the University and the Geological
Survey for the benefits which we have derived from
the Good Roads Institute.
(2.) Resolved further, That it is our desire for
the Institute to be an annual occurrence.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE DEBATING UNION STAGES A MAMMOTH CONTEST
The Winston-Salem High School Wins the Aycock Memorial Cup Over One Hundred and Sixty-two
Debaters Participating in the Contest at the Hill
The climax to months of hard and clearly instruc-
tive work carried on in Chapel Hill and in one hun-
dred and fifty other communities all over North
Carolina came on Thursday and Friday, April 2nd
and 3rd, when one hundred and sixty four debaters,
representing forty-one high schools, gathered in Chap-
el Hill for the second final contest of the North Caro-
lina Debating Union. The coming of these high
school debaters together with many superintendents,
principals, teachers, and visitors could not be other
than epochal in all the long history of the Univer-
sity of North Carolina. It was deeply significant of
the increasingly large part which the University is
playing in the life of the people of the State. For
two days the campus thronged wi.th visitors and never
did the University extend a gladder hand to more
To Charles Roddick and Clifton Eaton, the fifteen
year-old debaters of the Winston-Salem High School
belongs the much striven for distinction of having
won out over the other one hundred and sixty-two
debaters and thus having received the award of the
Aycock Memorial Cup. To Michael H. KernoJle
and Miss Flonnie Cooper, of the Graham High School
belongs the hard won honor of having contested final-
ly with the "Winston-Salem debaters. These two
teams were pitted against one another in the final
debate in Memorial Hall, on Friday evening, April
3rd, ( Sraham having the affirmative of the query and
Winston-Salem the negative, "Resolved, That the
( '(institution of North Carolina should be so amended
as .to allow the Initiative and Referendum in state-
The forty-one schools that sent their representa-
tives to Chapel Hill for this final contest were the ones
which had been victorious in both of their triangular
debates in the state-wide contest in which one hun-
dred and fifty schools took part on March 20th.
Each school sent both teams to Chapel Hill for this
final contest. The affirmative teams were divided into
four sections for a first preliminary on Thursday
evening, April 2nd, and likewise the teams on the
negative were divided into four sections. The schools
whose affirmative teams won out in this first prelimi-
nary and thus were entitled to enter the second pre-
liminary on Friday morning were: Graham, Pleas-
ant Garden, Manteo, Winston-Salem, Dallas, Xew
Bern, Sylvan, Statesville. On the negative the schools
whose teams made the second preliminary were Win-
ston-Salem, Durham, Asheville, Gatesville, Lumber-
ton, New Bern, Graham, and Churchland. Inas-
much as only sixteen teams out of a total of eighty-
two made this second preliminary, a school might well
count it an honor thus to have contested in the second
preliminary. From this number of sixteen teams the
Graham debaters on the affirmative and the Winston-
Salem debaters on the negative were chosen for the
final debate which was held on Friday evening, April
Memorial Hall, which for years has been used only
for exercises on University Day and Commencement
Day, was pressed into service for this final debate.
The crowd of 2,000 representative North Carolinians
which surged into the Hall filled it to its capacity.
In addition to the four hundred visitors who were
present during the whole two days' time, large num-
bers had come by automobiles and the evening train
from Durham, Raleigh, Graham, Winston-Salem,
Pittsboro, Burlington, and other nearby cities.
Acting President Edward K. Graham who presided
over the dabate declared in his introductory remarks
that this meeting was the culmination of the "most
remarkable series of debates that had ever taken place
in the South," and was "the most significant assembly
of people that had ever gathered together within
the borders of North Carolina." That he was justi-
fied in this statement is evident when it is considered
that more than 40,000 people in North Carolina had
listened to discussions of the Initiative and Referen-
dum, that 600 debaters had represented their schools
in inter-scholastic contests, that 1,000 boys and girls
in the State had prepared debates for their own pre-
liminaries and for their school debates on this subject.
A wonderful system of high school debates, one that
served as a model for other States, had, he declared,
been built up through the co-operative spirit existing
between the high schools and the University.
The debate itself was cleanly fought and closely
contested throughout. It was significant of an epoch
in several ways. It was the first time that a woman
had ever appeared on the stage in Memorial Hall.
It was the first time that a debate had ever been held
in Memorial Hall. Miss Flonnie Cooper, represent-
ing Graham on the affirmative side, was the feature of

the occasion. In appearance, manner, and delivery,
she was simple, sincere, earnest, appealing, and con-
vincing. In argument she was logical. Added interest
comes to this case because of the fact that last year her
sister, Miss Julia Cooper, was in the preliminaries
for the final debate of the Union at Chapel Hill and
made a splendid speech, and that this year another
sister, Miss Myrtle Cooper, represented Graham at
Chapel Hill on the negative side and made the sec-
ond preliminary, contesting closely with the winners
for the final debate.
Michael H. Kernodle opened the argument for the
affirmative side. He defined the initiative as a
means whereby the people can get needed legislation
which is withheld by their representatives. The refer-
endum he declared to be a means of undoing wrong
legislation enacted by the representatives. The initia-
tive and referendum, he said, were in direct line with
the democracy of the 'New England town meeting.
The freedom for which our fathers fought declares
that the people must be given a voice in making
laws. The initiative and referendum merely give
this right. The initiative and referendum are need-
ed so that the people can reassume power delegated to
their representatives who have not kept pace with the
progress demanded by the times.
Charles Roddick, the first speaker on the negative,
made an excellent speech. He declared that the
affirmative must show two things : that our system
of government was in need of a radical change, and
that the initiative and referendum were the correct
means for securing better government. He said that
our government responds now and has always re-
sponded to the mandates of the people, and he chal-
lenged the affirmative to show one instance where our
government had failed to respond to the will of the
people. He said that the initiative and referendum
were dangerous and impractical in a State where
thirty-three and one-third per cent of the people were
negroes and where the people stood so low in educa-
tion. The burden of proof must rest with the affirma-
Miss Flonnie Cooper, the second speaker on the
affirmative, presented a growing need for the initia-
tive and referendum, charging the present government
with being overridden with bosses and machine poli-
ticians. The initiative will prove a means of securing
a corrupt practices act, a stricter child labor law,
and the direct primary. The referendum will hold
the legislature in check. The initiative and refer-
endum will by no means substitute direct government
for representative government but will prevent repre-
sentative government from becoming misrepresen-
tative. What the people of North Carolina now have
in amendments to the Constitution they should have
in state-wide legislation — viz., the initiative and refer-
endum. Prolonged cheering such as has been seldom
heard in Chapel Hill followed her speech, sweeping
back and forth through Memorial Hall.
Clifton Eaton was the second speaker on the nega-
tive. His purpose was to show that the initiative
and referendum would not work practically. He said
that when the direct vote of the people had first killed
prohibition the Legislature educated the people by
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
means of the Watts law to the stage of passing the
state-wide act against liquor. He declared that the
initiative and referendum were in reality direct de-
mocracy, and that direct democracy could not exist at
the same place with representative government. If
the power of the Legislature were curtailed or if the
power of final action were taken from the members,
fit men would not sit in the General Assembly.
The rejoinders were spirited throughout. Each
speaker showed his native ability as a thinker and his
power to combat his opponents' argument on the spot.
The applause by the large audience was frequent and
prolonged throughout both the main, speeches and
While the judges were making up their decisions,
Mr. M. H. Stacy, Acting Dean of the University,
presented the Cups and Medals to winners in the
Inter-Scholastic Track Meet which had been held on
Friday afternoon., April 3rd. The trophy Cup for the
school winning the largest number of jDoints was
awarded to the Friendship High School, of Alamance
county. The Cup for the school having the winning
team in. the relay race was awarded to the Graham
High School. Silver medals were presented to all
winners of first places in the meet and bronze medals
were awarded to all winners of second places.
The decision of the judges stood four to one in
favor of the negative. Mr. W. S. Bernard, Associate
Professor of Greek in the University, in behalf of
all the Carolina inter-collegiate debaters, presented in
appropriate terms the Aycock Memorial Cup to the
winners, Charles Roddick and Clifton Eaton, of the
Winston-Salem High School. He told the affirmative
speakers that they had nothing to regret but on the
other hand much to prize for their hard fight kept up
all the way through. He told the negative speakers
of the obligations which the winning of the Aycock
Memorial Cup entailed. He paid high tribute to
Charles B. Aycock and to the old Di and Phi Socie-
ties which have provided in a democratic way train-
ing for thousands of members. It is the spirit of the
Di and Phi, he declared, which expresses itself in
the High School Debating Union.
Immediately following the presentation of the Cup,
the large audience adjourned to the Library where a
reception was tendered by the Societies in. honor of all
the visitors. The reception afforded an opportunity
for a general handshaking and a mingling together
which was thoroughly enjoyed by every one.
The high school debating committee served as a
central committee in. the entertainment of the visitors
to the Hill for this occasion. The members of the
faculty served as judges in the preliminaries which
lasted until the small hours of the night, and they
also entertained the twenty-four young lady debaters,
who came from as far east as Manteo and as far west
as Piney Creek, in Alleghany county. The students
of the University responded splendidly to the occa-
sion in a hearty desire to give the visitors a good
time. They gave of their time, money, and pleasure
to this end. The program of entertainment for their
two days' stay included the Carolina-Hampden-Sid-
ney baseball game, automobile rides generously pro-
vided by owners of automobiles in Chapel Hill, trips
to the Pickwick — Chapel Hill's classic picture show,
— the Inter-Scholastic Track Meet on Friday after-
noon, and the reception Friday night after the final
debate. A standard pin for debaters of the Union
has been adopted, and this was on sale during the two
days of the contest. A pennant emblematic of the
High School Debating Union is now being prepared,
and will be ready for distribution within a few weeks.
The High School Debating Uxion
The High School Debating Union is a permanent
affair. It has come to stay, and it is one of the very
biggest things that have ever happened along in the
history of the State of North Carolina. There is
universal praise of the Union from all sources. One
principal gave as his opinion before the final contest
was held, "I do not care especially which side wins or
what school is awarded the Cup, but take it any way
that you will the Debating Union is a wonderful vic-
tory for North Carolina of today and the future."
A superintendent writes "the Debating Union is a
splendid success. Keep up the good work and always
count on me." The superintendent of the Winston-
Salem schools says, "The winning of the Aycock
Memorial Cup is the greatest honor that has ever
come to our schools." With such a splendid spirit
of co-operation existing among the school men of the
State, the committee at Chapel Hill, which has al-
ready begun to plan for another year's contest, thinks
that it has solid ground for the hope that every secon-
dary and high school in North Carolina will be en-
rolled in the Union for the next great annual state-
wide contest in 1915.
The following schools were represented in the final
contest: Durham, Winston-Salem, Pleasant Garden,
Piney Creek, Glen Alpine, Boonville, Apex, Holly
Springs, Kinston, New Bern, Warrenton, Graham,
Lucama, Statesville, Asheville, Bethania, Belmont,

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
FRIENDSHIP WINS INTER-SCHOLASTIC TRACK MEET
Seventy-five Athletes from Thirteen Schools Contest
The second annual inter-scholastic track meet of
North Carolina was held in Chapel Hill on Friday
afternoon, April 3rd, under the auspices of the
Greater Council and General Alumni Athletic Asso-
ciation of the University. The meet was carried on
speedily and was one of the 'best meets generally that
have ever been held in Chapel Hill. Thirteen schools
were represented as follows: Gatesville, Hillsboro,
Huntersville, Sanford, Washington, Asheville, Ba-
leigh, High Point, Friendship, Oak Eidge, Graham,
Lucama, Leaksville, and seventy-five athletes partici-
pated in the different events.
The Friendship High School, of Alamance county,
led in the meet with 27 points and thus was awarded
the trophy cup, which in the meet last year was won
by the High Point High School. Oak Eidge and
Graham came next with 13 points each, Ealeigh
with 10 points stood next, Hillsboro made 9 points,
Washington 8, Huntersville 5, High Point 3, Ashe-
ville 2. A special cup was offered for the school win-
ning the relay race, and this was awarded to the
Graham team. All winners of first places in the meet
received silver medals, and all winners of second
places received bronze medals.
The University enjoyed having these young ath-
letes here as much as she enjoyed having the high
school debaters. They were entertained while on the
Hill by the different county clubs, and everything
possible was done for their pleasure. The effect of
holding the inter-scholastic meet annually has
already been seen in a greatly increased interest in
track athletics in schools all over the State. This
Meet is a part of the regular high school activities of
the University, along with the Debating Union, the
Football Contest which was carried to such a suc-
cessful conclusion last Fall and the Baseball Contest
which is being initiated this Spring.
The records made in the different events together
with those winning places are as follows:
High Jump, 5 feet 7 inches: Davis, Hillsboro,

offered will be opened to those who wish to do work
leading to the A. B. and A. M. degrees. In this-
way it will be possible for those who are under-grad-
uates to secure college credits of from three to four
hours during the session and for graduates of stand-
ard colleges to secure the A. M. degree for four Sum-
mers' study. The courses thus offered are centered
chiefly around the regular work of the School of
Education, and will be increased later as occasion de-
Among subjects to receive special emphasis are
those of Agriculture, Nature Study, Botany, and
Agricultural Chemistry. Dr. T. E. Turlington, of
the Farm Life School of Craven county will be in
charge of the work in Agriculture.
Plans have also been made for holding two con-
ferences for the benefit of rural life workers and high
school teachers. These will fall in the week, June
22-27, to be known as Rural Life Week, and will be
participated in by many visitors in addition to those
in regular attendance at the Summer School. Among
those expected to take part in the conferences are
Dr. Liberty H. Bailey, of Cornell, Prof. E. C. Bran-
son, of the State Normal School of Athens, Ga., Mr.
Clarence Poe, Hon. W. A. Graham, and Mrs. Jane
McKimmon, of Raleigh.
Provision is being made for the opening of the
University dormitories and the new Dining Hall, and

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
What The Review Has Longed for Has Happened— The Alumni Begin to Write
HOW THE SUMMER SCHOOL CAN HELP
Editor, Alumni Review:
Sir: — The Summer School of the University now
offers two courses : one to help those who are to enter
college ; another to help teachers who feel their lack of
preparation. This latter course leads to a certificate.
Judging from the numher of teachers from North
Carolina who attended the Summer School at Colum-
bia University last summer and summers previous
to that, there is quite a demand within the State for
more advanced courses of study at our University
Summer School. If one hundred can afford to go
from North Carolina to New York City, then five
hundred could attend the summer courses at Chapel
Hill. I believe they would do so provided the courses
were offered by experts, — men who are nationally
Of course there is a difficulty in knowing just
what the teachers want. We all know, or think we
do, what they need. They no doubt need instruction
or reviewing in Mathematics, English, Latin, Greek,
etc. As a matter of fact, a great many of them want
instruction in the actual handling of a class. They
want to see an expert teach a reading lesson in the
third grade, and then hear an expert like Dr. Mc-
Murray discuss the good and bad points of the work.
They want to see the Montessori methods in opera-
tion; above all, they want a good deal of practical
demonstration with the theory that is usually given.
We want to install a domestic science department
in the school in our town next year. One of our
teachers has had some work in this but is desirous of
attending a school this Summer and studying the ar-
rangement of the domestic science course. We are
writing letters to find the nearest school offering a
course worth while.
Drawing must be taught in the public schools: but
public school teachers say that the usual summer
courses do not help them much. I understand that
they teach "art" instead of drawing.
So it is with writing.
But to return to the present courses offered at
Chapel Hill, — I think that if courses were offered
leading to all degrees except Ph. D., more of us
could induce teachers to attend, — not just one sum-
mer, but for consecutive summers.
It seems to me that enlarging the scope of the
summer work is right in line with the University's
present policy of carrying the college into the State.

WHY NOT AN ALUMNI CATALOGUE?
Editor, Alumni Review:
Sir: — Among the needs of the University as set
forth from time to time there is one which has not
been mentioned, — at least in the Alumni Review.
This need, while not altogether pressing, if supplied,

the interests of the alumni, and help to produce a
stronger alumni feeling such as is absolutely neces-
sary to keep them more actively behind that institu-
One of the first signs of new life among the Uni-
versity forces was tiie organization of the alumni.
This was felt to be absolutely essential in ushering the
University into a life of new and modern usefulness,
for it was felt that the alumni, the permanent repre-
sentatives of the University sent out among the
communities of the State, were the ones who, by
their efforts and by their representation, could prepare
the field, viz., the people, to expect great things, to
hope for great things, and to co-operate for great
things from the logical and actual head of the State's
It was felt, and accurately so, that the alumnus
could be, properly inspired, a strong crusader against
forces of prejudice which have existed — not so much
by his boasting' of his institution, but by his conduct,
by eliciting the comment, "He's a graduate of the
The Alumni Review was one of the mediums for
inspiring the alumnus, for impelling him to righteous
self conduct, for making him an exponent of the best
things for the public, as much as for keeping him in-
formed of his alma mater. Verily, from such infor-
mation from '"home," monthly though it be, he should
feel the flow of ideals.
I do not believe an alumni catalogue would be
better than this — it could not be as good. Yet, as
one of the agencies, and all of us are more susceptible
to two agencies, or three, or four, than to a lesser
ntunber, an alumni catalogue, modern, handy, and
too handsome to be lost, would act as quite an in-
fluence toward keeping strong an interest in the in-
That is the main value of it — though right now,
since I think on't, I would like to know where I
could write one of the best friends I had while in
school, and I suppose nobody in the State could give
me the address. An alumni catalogue should.
The volume I suggest should contain the names of
matriculates, class, degree, present occupation, and
address or notation of death. Printed on thin paper
in small type, with plain but substantial binding, it
should prove serviceable. Corrections, of course,
should be made at intervals to keep the publication
THE DEBATING UNION STIMULATES
Editou. Alumni Review:
Sir: — For two reasons, Mr. Editor, I wish to take oc-
casion to point out the High School Debating Union's
merit as a stimulator of interest in debating among
the boys in the different high schools over the State;
first, because I hope that such a discussion of the
High School Debating Union may be of assistance
tn those interested in literary society work in the
high school; and second, because I think that it will
be a source of gratification to other alumni to know
that the Union does serve such a worthy purpose.
In our work with the societies here in the Charlotte
High School we have found the High School Debat-
ing Union of immense value in stimulating interest,
and the recognition of just one thing in the mental
makeup of the ordinary high school boy I am sure
will enable any literary society director to make of
the Union a very effective stimulator. The average
high school boy has not grown up to the place where
he possesses mental self-reliance. The high school
boy may think that debating is a good thing, but when
he looks about him, he sees that athletics and many
other things come in for more attention, applause —
reward ; and, consequently, he goes in for these other
things. He hasn't the requisite amount of mental
self-reliance to go in for debating on his own "hook,"
with practically no one standing behind him to urge
him on. The Union can abundantly remedy this
trouble. Let your high school boy know, more than
this, make him feel that the University — and our
University sounds big to the high school boy these
days — thinks enough of debating to spend time and
money to organize a debating union for high school
boys, and the boy's one time faint idea that debating
is a good thing becomes a conviction. The problem
of stimulating interest in debate is then solved. The
High School Debating Union backed by the Univer-
sity's prestige, and expressive of the University's in-
terest in. the boys of the State, supplies the amount of
encouragement and backing necessary to make our
high school boys go in for debate with vim and deter-
A stimulator and a tonic is what the Debating
Union has been to our society work here in the Chai"-
lotte High School; naturally, therefore, we feel very
grateful to those who have labored so faithfully to
make the Union the success that it is.
Yours very truly,

THE CATALOGUE, 1913-14
The changes in the University Catalogue, just
off the press, indicate clearly, and with the brevity
of a catalogue, the direction and the extent of the
recent growth of the institution.
There are two new chapters, one entitled the School
of Education, the other the Bureau of Extension. The
former sets forth all the activities of the newly form-
ed normal branch of the University, explains the re-
quirements for the teacher's certificate which is given
for specialized work in the regular course for the
bachelor'^ degree, ami outlines the various courses of
instruction. The curse- of Prof. L. A. Williams are
offered this year for the first time. The other new
chapter is a summary of the work of the University
Extension Department. It contains a brief state-
ment of the public service performed by each of the
-even sub-divisions of the Bureau, gives a list of the
lectures offered by the Faculty, and announce- the
correspondence courses at present given. Only from
such a summary a- this — which, by the way. will be
reprinted from the catalogue — can one form an ap-
proximate idea of bhe extent of the work and of the
general participation in it by nearly all members of
Throughout, the courses "f instruction have under-
gone such revision as continuous growth each year
tes. The newly created Department of Elec-
trical Engineering, under Prof. I I has been
separated from the Department of Physics and ap-
- in a different place in the catalogue. The entire
announcement of the courses in Electricity has been
revised, and new courses have been add h the
undergraduate and graduate section-. Changes are
also to be found in the Department of English, where
Prof. Greenlaw's courses are announced for the first
time, and in the Department of German, where addi-
tional courses are given by Professors Brown and
Ehyne. In the Department of Mathematics, Prof.
Henderson offers a new course in Analytic Geometry,
and in the Department of Zoology Prof. Wilson an-
nounces a course for High School teachers.
THE FACTS IN THE GAMBLING INCIDENT
Through the holdup of a check at a local bank, a
"crap" game was discovered in which were involved
six students, the track trainer ami several citize -
the town. The students were immediately dis-
missed from College, the trainer's conn,
with the University instantly ceased. and
four of the students and the others involved
were bound over to court ami fined from ten
to twenty dollars. In Sunday's papers a long story'
appeared playing the case up in a spectacular manner.
At mail time students, as is their custom, gathered at
tin- postoffice. When one of the student- saw that his
name had been published in some of the state papers
for participating in a crap game he went over to
the correspondent, put his hand on his shoulder, and
asked for an explanation. The students standing
nearest induced this student with little effort to leave
the correspondent. Xot a single blow was pass
This incident was sensationally colored up in
terms by the correspondent. There were students
and professors in the postoffice as a part of the "mob"
who did not know that anything had happened. The
anger that was naturally felt by some was not even
suggestive of mob violence. The postmaster and his
assistants who were in the postoffice the whole time
diil not know that anything had happened. Only a
small number of students knew that anything was
said to have happened until they saw it glaring' in the
newspapers next morning. The overwrought ruis-
representations have run their own course. The facts
stand out in unbroken clearness that the heart of the
University was never mure vigorous and sound and
clean, and that the student behavior in the postoffice
was in keeping with the most orderly year the Uni-
versity has known in this and perhaps in any college

body. For five years Junior Week has been an occasion
of University festivity and has grown in interest each
year. In, 1909 the Senior Circus and the Junior
Promenade featured the inauguration of Junior
Week. This year the Sophomore and Freshman
classes will have a representative part in the gaiety
of the Junior Season. Many alumni will come back
to enjoy the festivities.

CLIPPINGS FROM THE PRESS
CIVIC EDUCATION THROUGH DISCUSSION
['Commendation of a very high order has been
given the basic idea of the Bulletin on Public Dis-
cussion and Debate recently issued in the Extension
Series. This commendation comes from the United
States Bureau of Education in the form of a circular
letter addressed to .educators and social workers
throughout the entire United States, having been
written by Arthur W. Dunn under the direcri.ni of
the Commissioner of Education. — Editor.]
The arousing of a State-wide civic consciousness
and civic interest among young and old by means of
discussion of live questions of local concern in the
schoolhouse and at the country cross-roads, is the
undertaking of the University of North .Carolina.
The University stands on the doctrine of Wendell
Phillips that "agitation is education. Agitation is
marshalling the conscience of a nation to mold its
"With a record of emphasis upon debate from its
founding in IT'.».">, the University has gone about it
to systematize ami universalize discussion of every
conceivable question of vital local interest, not only
by the youth of the State in the high schools, but by
adult organizations of farmers, of women, or of any
other available group.
For some years graduates of the University have
established debating clubs in the schools where they
have gone to teach, members of the facility have ans-
wered communications, and materials have been sent
to all parts of the State from the University library
and the State library commission. Recently a high
school debating union was organized, including more
than one hundred schools, to conduct State-'wide
As a part of its extensive plans in this direction,
the Extension Bureau of the University has just
issued a manual on Public Discussion and Debate
"to stimulate discussion of public questions chiefly
by high school students, but also by community clubs
and public organization." This manual suggests a
large number of questions of immediate interest in
north Carolina. A considerable number of the ques-
tions are analyzed, arguments pro and con being
given. References arc given to easily available mater-
ial, much of which may be obtained by application to
the University, to the library commission, or to public
offices. In addition to this, instructions are given as
to how to organize for such discussions and how to
While some of the questions suggested for discus-
sion are of national significance, the chief value of
the work of the University lies in the way it focuses
attention upon real problems of immediate local con-
cern. For example, it is ''Resolved,
"That — — County should provide a medical
inspector of schools ;
"That all county officers in County should
be nominated through a legalized direct primary;
''That the stockman is a worse enemy to the forests
of North Carolina than the lumberman ;
"That the town of should establish a tax-
supported library ;
"That it is expedient for County to in-
crease the salaries of its public school-teachers at
least 25 per cent ;
"That, the farmers of should form a co-
operative marketing association."
These are only illustrative of a wide range of sub-
The manual points out that ''public discussion in.
North Carolina during the past decade has under-
gone a most desirable change. Emphasis hitherto
placed largely on things political and national, is be-
ing placed on questions affecting the every day life
of North Carolina. To make this change even more
far-reaching, every North Carolina community
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
should resolve itself into a community club and de-
vote itself seriously to the quiet, persistent study of
its economic, social, educational, and religious prob-
''The plan of organization and the method of pro-
cedure in such clubs should be simpler than of school
societies. Their object should be open, frank, earnest
discussion. The building up of a strong, constructive,
community spirit, and the community interest should
be a second object. Out of such discussions, charac-
terized by such a spirit, will inevitably come the solu-
tion of problems upon which the welfare of the com-
munity absolutely depends.
"If a place of meeting is the only obstacle in the
way of the formation of such a club, the local school-
house can well be used for this purpose. It ought
to be widely used and made the real social center of
UNIVERSITY'S VITAL RELIGION
The Observer cannot pass by without commenting
editorially upon the news dispatch in yesterday morn-
ing's paper which gave in detail the work of the Y.
M. C. A. of the University for the negroes of Chapel
Hill. Under the auspices of the Association a series
of lectures was given upon North Carolina's negro
problem by members of the faculty, and thereupon
a department was established by the young men for
the study of the problem. The work of this depart-
ment has been to make a careful, house-to-house in-
vestigation into the living conditions of the negroes
of the village ; to conduct Sunday schools for them ;
and, most important of all, to carry on, five nights out
of the week, a night school where negro boys who work
all day can receive instruction in the elements of edu-
In oldeu times the religious work of college stu-
dents consisted in listening to lectures by spectacled
professors upon the battles of the Book of Joshua and
in reciting the names of the Kings of Israel with the
dates of each. But nowadays, the spirit of democracy
has crept — crept back — into religious work. Within
their Y. M. C. A. organizations the students conduct
Bible classes of themselves, for themselves and by
themselves and the inspiration which they receive
from these self-conducted classes is so great that it
expresses itself in practical work such as that now be-
ing carried on at the University. The secretary of
the Y. M. C. A. of the University is Mr. Frank P.
Graham of Charlotte, the son of Prof. Alexander
Craham. Under his leadership the University Asso-
ciation is becoming the leading student Association
of the South. We congratulate him and bid him
Godspeed in his work. — Charlotte Observer, March 2.
THE HIGH SCHOOL DEBATES
At the high school debates to be held in one hun-
dred and fifty towns in the State on Friday night of
this week thirty thousand North Carolinians will
hear discussed by six hundred youthful debaters the
question of the initiative and referendum. These de-
bates will be of great interest not only to the speakers
themselves, but also to the listeners who are going to
hear matters of instructive value. The occasion is
the holding of the preliminary debates in the second
annual contest of the North Carolina Debating Union,
conducted by the Dialectic and Philanthropic Lit-
erary Societies of the University of North Carolina.
North Carolinians are unusually well informed
about political problems, and they like to discuss and
hear discussed governmental questions. The success-
ful organization of those among the rising genera-
tion who are interested in public speaking and poli-
tical thinking into a Debating Union is a fine means
of allowing the youth of the State to inform itself
carefully and fully — and to instruct their elders, too,
perhaps — in regard to problems of government thai,
although they do not have to be settled tomorrow, will
surely come up for decision in the life time of the
majority of those who speak on Friday night. It will
lead to saner and more jirogressive political thinking.
Training for leadership in the settling of such prob-
lems as the initiative and referendum is certain to be
the result of this movement organized by the Literary
Societies of the University of North Carolina, which
by means of this are rendering a distinct service to the
State. — News and Observer, March, ISth.
UNIVERSITY FACULTY'S REACH
One of the most interesting features of the presi-
dent's report just issued from the University of
North Carolina is the section which records the ac-
tivities of the University faculty during the past
year. The facts given in this section show an extra-
ordinary activity on the part of the faculty. One
hundred and sixty-one addresses, largely of a popular
nature, have been given by these gentlemen in North
Carolina in the past 12 months, and 61 articles and
books, the latter of a more scholarly nature, have
been published as well. In addition, the faculty has
published five numbers of the Elisha Mitchell Scien-
tific Journal, three numbers of the James Sprunt
Historical Publications, two volumes of Studies in
Philology, four numbers of the High School Bulletin.
These are regular publications issued throughout the
year. We doubt if any faculty in a college south of
Baltimore can show so large an output.
In this connection the Observer will call attention
to a new department recently established at the
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
University. It is the department of Applied Eco-
nomics and Rural Sociology. This department will
make a direct and scientific study of the economic
and sociological conditions of North Carolina. The
object of its work will be to discover and devise ways
in which rural conditions in North Carolina can be
bettered. This is a kind of University extension
work that appeals to us strongly. We hope that great
good will come. — Charlotte Observer. February 22,

TWO HELPFUL AGENCIES
For the benefit of the many North Carolina boys
and girls and older persons who write The Progres-
sive Farmer for material to help them in debates or
the preparation of speeches, we wish to say that
we unfortunately do not have material to offer in such
cases, but we are glad to mention two public agencies
that can help them and will do so gladly and freely.
These are the Bureau of Extension, University of
North Carolina, Chapel Hill, N. C, and the State
Library Commission, Raleigh, N. C. The Library
Commission will furnish books and magazines bear-
ing on the subject you indicate — the borrower to pay
postage both ways — and the University Bureau of
Extension will give specific information and general
help when desired. Our Farmers' Union brethren
will often find it worth while to consult both these
agencies in arranging programs for local or county
meetings. — Progressive Farmer, March 7, 1914.
BRANSON FOR NORTH CAROLINA
About the 'best educational news for the State this
month is the announcement that Eugene C. Branson,
former President of the State Normal School of
Athens, Georgia, will become professor of applied
economics and rural sociology in the University of
Prof. Branson is an educational pragmatist. He
studies conditions even more ardently than text-books,
and makes his class-room work function in the every-
day economics of living. Through the new chair of
applied economics and rural sociology in the Univer-
sity, he will introduce a new and vital element into
the educational work of the State. — 'North Carolina

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
AN EXECUTIVE SECRETARY FOR THE ALUMNI
The Alumni Council at a meeting in Durham on
March the 10 th resolved to lay before the Board of
Trustees and the Geneial Alumni Association. *.t
their respective meetings on June the 2nd, a definite
request to create jointly an office whose incumbent
shall be known as Executive-Secretary of the Alumni
or by some more appropriate title.
The Council will recommend that this officer be
made a member of the University faculty and be re-
quired to reside at Chapel Hill and devote all his
time to the duties of his office. His functions as
secretary of the Alumni shall be, for example, to as-
sist in the organization of new county and city alum-
ni associations ; to suggest and aid in furthering acti-
vities of organized associations; to collect data about
widely scattered and now lost alumni, data for the
publication of a General Catalogue of the Alumni,
perhaps the most poignant need at present in Univer-
sity activities, from the view point of both efficiency
and sentiment; to publish the Alumni Review. His
functions as an officer of the University are to be de-
termined by special need as interpreted by the Exe-
cutive. For example, there is an insistent demand
for a man unhampered by academic duties to man-
age the machinery of the Extension Lectures Bureau
and a bureau for the supply of teachers to schools.
He should be the genera] field agent of the University.
Suffice it that there is multifold work sufficient to
tax the ability of a very capable man. Much of this
work is now being done by the teaching members of
the faculty, at a loss in efficiency in the lecture room
and other purely academic activities, as well as a loss
to the extension work itself from unavoidable lack of
The Council will recommend that the salary of the
officer be paid partly out of a general fund contribut-
ed by the alumni, partly by special appropriation by
the Board of Trustees, the proper division to be de-
tenu i nod upon.
The qualifications for such an office, it is clear, are
very high. Its incumbent should be an alumnus of
the University, well acquainted with its history and
keenly sensitive to its traditions and to the North
Carolina -pint. Energy and enthusiasm might
bring failure without tad and self-restraint. He
will rub elbows with the besl of scholars and be en-
tertained in the homes of the plain people of North
Carolina. It will be in bis power more than any
others to interpret the University to the people and
create for it possibilities of new usefulness to them.
All the while there will be the crowding details of
his office calling for the very highest business efficien-
cy. There is such a man somewhere, the demand for
his is insistent. Will the trustees and alumni bring
the two together ? It will cost, but every cent thus
spent will firing dividends eventually, not in cents
but service. — W. S. B.
A notable occasion in the mental life of the student
body was the reading of his own poems by Alfred
]SToyes on the evening of March 25. The episode
marks a new step forward in our attitude towards
literature and the life of the spirit. Surely it is a
matter of signal moment to all of us that a poet can
come here and be greeted by an audience that reached
to the roof. To everyone there that night, something
not less inspiring than the impetuous poetry of Noyes
was the collective sense of the crowd, its unit charac-
ter. How often is the effect of a public occasion
spoiled through indifference, half-heartedness, or ill-
concealed boredom '. There was no hint of this at the
reading by Noyes. It is doubtful if Noyes, anywhere,
ever encountered a more intelligently responsive au-
dience. Such a spirit is a genuine asset — its value to
the University cannot be calculated. It unites us
here with the best everywhere — it sets the standard
to which it is most desirable for us always to measure
This is no place for an appreciation of Noyes. It
is enough to say that he comes to us with a sort of ag-
gressive challenge, which rings out with all the bouy-
ancy of virile manhood. He gives us a man's poetry:
robust, red-Wooded, forthright. He didn't "read"
his poetry: he said it. He gave it to us as he felt it
and as he had created it — surely the most significant
confession of that brief hour. Aside from form and
content, poetry thus presented carries a distinct char-
acter-message. When poetry thus presented is rich in
both form and content, the message goes straight to the
whole man. T think that is the secret of Xoyes : he
appeals to the whole man. Significant of the atti-
tude of the students are these truly important words
in the Tar Heel editorial: "Let a real poet speak to
you and he lifts you out of yourself by the power of
his own soul. No University man can now think of
poetry us necessarily feniini r mystical or nol to be
understood." — A. H.

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
hut 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.

campus as some of the other classes are planning to do?
Just one more matter for your attention, if you send $2.50
for the class scholarship fund then we shall have made good
our promise, at the time of the last reunion, to give to the
University at least one scholarship every year for five years.

— There were several members of Naught Nine on the Hill
last Commencement. In meeting duly assembled they una-
nimously reached two conclusions:
First : That there never has been a class reunion at Chapel
Hill. There have been, and in fact are every June, lots of
near-reunions, pseudo-reunions, mock-reunions, but as for a
real, thorough-going, everybody-present reunion — the kind
where a fellow can jam against the man who jammed him
at Commons, stick the man who stuck him at Eubanks, and
loaf again with the whole crowd around the well — there never
has been one.
Second : That what it takes to have a real, thorough-going,
everybody-present, etc., etc., reunion, Naught Nine has got.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
The President, Willie P., has appointed a reunion committee
and the undersigned is a member. We have decided that the
first gun to be fired in the campaign for our real reunion
is a first-class, breezy, newsy, Bulletin telling Who's Who in
Naught Nine and What He's Done. We have engaged the
finest literary talent in the class — and therefore in the world —
to write this Bulletin, but he is now worrying the Committee
to death calling for copy. What we want you to do is to
fill out the enclosed blank giving the information about your-
self. All the questions are self explanatory except possibly
the last one. What we want in answer to this question is
any interesting item of news about yourself that you would
like to know if it had happened to the other fellow — anything
from the most recent murders you have committed to the
number of times your girl has turned you down. You will
readily recognize that as far as furnishing real intersting
material for the Bulletin is concerned this question is the
You may have some natural reserve about answering the
questions about yourself, but please pass up your reserve and
answer the questions fully. Otherwise it will be utterly im-
possible to get out a good Bulletin. If you want to know
about the others you have got to do your part and let them
know about you.
We are enclosing also a list of all the members of the
class. Please go over this list and give us the same informa-
tion about the others, or such of them as you know, that
is asked about yourself. This is extremely important and we
certainly hope you will be willing to help us out in this re-
spect to the limit of your knowledge.
Please mail everything back to me at once.

—Nineteen Eleven is taking time by the forelock. From the
following paragraphs taken from the letter written by R.

it is evident that the "old grads" will see something new under
the sun at reunion time, 1916.
"Although the first reunion of the class of 191 1 will not
be held until 1916, the following men were appointed by the
president, W. A. Dees, in January, 1913, to make arrange-
ments to celebrate the first "Home Coming" of this class:
C. E. Mcintosh, E. J. Wellons, I. C. Moser, Kenneth Tanner,
R. G. Stockton, Chr.
"Notwithstanding it is over two years before the members
of 10,11, augmented in numbers, will advance on Chapel Hill,
this committee has already begun to devise ways and means of
making this event a great occasion. One novel idea is now
being considered by the committee, which, if carried out, will
alone make this reunion one that no member of the class
can afford to miss."

— Greetings ! With the approach of Spring there has come a
wide-spread demand that the class of 1913 hold a one-year
reunion this commencement. It is hoped that by this meeting,
held before many of our fellows have moved out of the State
and at a time when but few will be kept at home because of
a new wife, we may further cement the feeling of brotherhood
formed in undergraduate days and give a firmness to our
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
class organization that will serve as a sustaining strength to
the University in all of her endeavors.
The president and the secretary of the class have therefore
called a reunion for Tuesday, June 2nd, commencement of
1914, and have appointed the committee named below to make
all plans for it. Arrangements will be made for a smoker
and other features of entertainment that will bring back vivid-
ly remembrances of college days. Your co-operation with
this committee in making suggestions and in writing promptly
of your expectation to attend will aid materially in the plans.
We hope that every member of the class, no matter whether
he received his degree last Spring or dropped out after the
Fall term of his freshman year, will attend this reunion.
1913 made a record during its undergraduate days that has
been rarely, if ever, equaled, one such as called forth from
the editor of the Alumni Review the remark, "The loyalty
and spirit of 1913 constitute one of Alma Mater's most cher-
ished memories." It is highly fitting that our class should
initiate the movement of one-year reunions and it is in-
cumbent upon us to make the affair a complete success and
set a high standard.
In order to insure complete success your presence is needed.
Please notify E. R. Rankin, secretary of the reunion com-
mittee, of your plans to be present, and make any suggestions
that may occur to you. If any one has not replied to the
list of questions sent out last fall by Secretary Wiggins, it
is hoped that he will do so at once, so that the statistics of
the class will be full and reliable.
The University expects every one of her sons to do his
duty: Let's every one be present on Tuesday, June 2nd, 1914.

Colonel Whitfield was at various times a county commissioner,
representative from Lenior county to the Legislature and
instrumental in educational matters of state-wide import.
He was for many years the senior warden of Holy Innocents
Episcopal church, president of the county Farmers' Alliance
and president of the Farmers' Mutual Fire Insurance asso-
ciation, of this county.

and was Professor of Mathematics in Austin College, Hunt-
ersville, Texas, i8s9-'6i. He served in the Confederate Army
in Cleburne's Brigade. After the close of the war he settled
at his old home as a planter, served in the State Legislature,
and was member of the Congress of the United States, 1891-
'95. He was author of "The North Against the South," a
book discussing the constitutionality of secession.
