APRIL, 1914 



Number 6 



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. 

DDD 

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. 

DDD 

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. 
That it met with success was indicated by the hearty 
resolution of commendation passed by the conference 
and the proposal on its part to make the meeting at 
the Hill an annual event,

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.

NEWSPAPER ]Sj" c ] ouc l j s e ver so dark but that it has 
HYSTERIA a silver lining. So the University in 
the recent gambling incident, the after- 
math of which was raised to the nth power of sensa- 
tionalism and colored beyond all recognition. Out 
of this exaggeration, however, which placed the Uni- 
versity in a false and most undesirable light, certain 
facts shone into relief which strikingly demonstrated 
the absolute soundness of the growth of the Univer- 
sity's inner as well as outer life. Briefly they were: 

The University stands for true publicity. 

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 
organized a fighting lineup to stamp out, in con- 
junction with University and town authorities, any 
vestige of gambling in the University. And further, 
instead of exhibiting "mob" spirit, it exercised 
worthy self-control in a period of trying misrepre- 
sentation. 

The college sense of newspaper injustice grew out 
of that higher loyalty than patriotism — loyalty to the 
facts. And when all the facts are in it will be found 
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 
meetings. 

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 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 
welcome guests. 

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- 
wide legislation." 

The Preliminaries 

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 
3rd. 

The Finals 

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- 
tive. 

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

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 
rejoinders. 

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, 
North Wilkesboro, Troutmans, Lumberton, Marsh- 
ville, Dallas, Atkinson, Stem, Lenoir, King, Mt. 
Ulla, Sylvan, Whi takers, Pikeville, Mason's Cross, 
iChurchland, Snow Hill, Sparta, Belhaven, Manteo, 
Gatesville, Stoneville, Clinton, Leaksville, and Went- 
worth.

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, 
Mills, Ealeigh, tied for first ; Homewood, Friendship, 
third. 

Mile Eun, 5.29; Moser, Friendship, first; Neely, 
Oak Eidge, second; Bearden, Asheville, third.

THE SUMMER SCHOOL GOES FORWARD 



Credits for the A. B. and A. M. Degrees Will Hereafter be Given 



The announcement of the University Summer 
School for June 16-July 29, 1914, has just been is- 
sued by Director X. W. Walker. The scope of the 
work for the approaching session has been greatly en- 
larged and the various departments much strengthen- 
ed. Special work has been planned for: 

1. Teachers of primary grades. 

2. Teachers of grammar grades. 

3. High School teachers and principals. 

4. Superintendents. 

5. Teachers, superintendents, and others wishing 
to pursue courses leading to the A. B. and A. M. de- 
grees. 

Special courses, as indicated by the announcement, 
will be offered in Primary Methods, Grammar School 
Methods, Secondary Education, the Common School 
Branches, Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Trigono- 
metry, English Grammar, Composition and Litera- 
ture, History, Physics, Chemistry, School Gardening, 
Agriculture, Botany, Geography, Geology, Plays, 
Games, Story-telling, Public School Music, Drawing, 
Latin, Greek, German, Educational Psychology, Ex- 
perimental Education, School Supervision, and Li- 
brary Administration. 

In order to keep the school abreast with the needs 
of the teachers of the State, twenty-two of the courses 
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- 
mands. 

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 
from advance requisitions for rooms indications point 
to the most significant session in the history of the 
school. 



THE MAGAZINE ISSUES A SPLENDID NUMBER FOR 
APRIL 

The April Magazine reaches high water mark and 
in three articles makes a special appeal to alumni. 
The noteworthy articles from this special viewpoint 
are "North Carolina's Trustee System," by W. P. 
Fuller; "Fifty-four Years of the Y. M. C. A.," by 
Philip Woollcott; and "Coach Trenchard: A Re- 
view," an editorial in which Mr. Trenchard's work 
is reviewed and his conflict with the administration as 
to matters of athletic policy is pointed out. 



GOOD ROADS CIRCULAR NO. 99. 

The North Carolina Geological and Economic 
Survey has just issued as Good Roads Circular No. 
99, the "Use of the Abney Hand Level," by Professor 
T. F. Hickerson, of the Department of Civil and 
Highway Engineering. The circular comprises six 
pages, ami aivcs a very complete description of the 
a ivs in which this special level can be used by North 
Carolina road engineers.

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 
known. 

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 RALEIGH ROAD 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

would work as one of the agencies toward cementing 
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- 
tion. 

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 
educational forces. 

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 
University, too." 

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- 
stitution. 

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 
modern. 



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- 
mination. 

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 
the faculty. 

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

CAROLINA'S LATEST LAWYERS 

By furnishing twenty-seven out of the total num- 
ber of forty-seven men who passed the law examina- 
tion at Raleigh, February 2, 1914, the University 
Law School has again shown that as a law school, 
few schools, if any at all, have it beaten. It is also a 
noticeable fact that twenty-seven out of twenty-eight 
of the appliqants from Carolina passed. The one 
who failed to pass had failed to pass here and had 
not received a certificate as had the other twenty-seven.

CAROLINA'S RECENT ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS 

Students in electrical engineering at the Univer- 
sity have recently given splendid account of them- 
selves. J. M. Labberton, '13, formerly assistant in 
electrical engineering in the University is an. instruc- 
tor in the educational department of the Westing- 
house Electric and Manufacturing Company. He 
writes that Carolina men in the student apprentice 
company at the Westinghouse shops rank third in 
training, the only other students ranking higher be- 
ing those from the very highly specialized engineer- 
ing departments of Cornell and Purdue. Thad Voils, 
'12, is an electrical engineer for the Westinghouse 
Company in Cincinnati. A. R. Martin, '12, is a sales 
engineer with the detail and supply department of 
the Westinghouse Company at East Pittsburgh, Pa. 
L. L. Abernethy, ex-'14, is with the Southern Public 
Utilities Company at Charlotte. 



PROFESSOR HOLMES LECTURES

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 
laws." 

"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 
debating contests. 

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 
conduct them. 

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- 
jects. 

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 



137 



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- 
lems. 

''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 
the community." 



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- 
cation. 

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 



138 



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, 
1914.

March 18, 1914. 



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 
North Carolina. 

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 
Education, March, 1914. 



ALUMNI REVIEW IS OUT 

The Alumni Review, published by the University 
of North Carolina, is out in its second volume and 
fifth number. It is one of the finest college publica- 
tions that ever came out in this country. One of the 
leaders is a splendid article by Dr. C. A. Smith, of 



Charlottesville, Va. 

" I find the Alumni Review intensely interesting 
and congratulate you heartily on its insides and out- 
sides." 
Raleigh, N. C- 

" I congratulate you on the success with which you 
have been conducting the Review, which is always 
a welcome visitor." 
Wilmington, N. C. 

" The Bureau of Extension is doing a wonderful 
work both for the University and the State. In car- 
rying out its program of service it is advertising the 
University in a worth-while capacity to a great many 
folks who have held an hostile opinion. And it is a 
good sign to alumni of a new, forward-looking 
spirit." 
Raleigh, N. C. 

" I wish to congratulate you upon the progressive 
work of your Bureau of Extension." 
Washington, N. C. 

" I am writing to thank you for a copy of the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina Record, Extension Series 
No. 1, containing ' A Professional Library for Teach- 
ers in Secondary Schools.' This is a good piece of 
work you have done. Please send me, if possible, a 
dozen copies of it." 
Emporia, Kan. 

" We thank you for the copy of ' A Professional 
Library for Teachers,' sent to this library. May I 
have a personal copy of this very suggestive list ?" 
Lumberton, N. C. 

" The copy of your Bulletin No. 2 has been re- 
ceived and after a careful examination I am con- 
vinced that it can be used to a decided advantage in 
our public school libraries. If you will send me forty 
copies I will see to it that they are distributed where 
they will do most good." 
Columbia, S. C. 

" I have received a copy of your Extension Series 
No. 2 in which I am deeply interested." 
Valparaiso, Ind. 

" Please send me twenty copies of Bulletin No. 5 
on the Initiative and Referendum." 



Professor C. L. Raper attended the meeting of the 
Conference for Education in the South, April 9-11, 
at Louisville, Ky. 

The University of Minnesota sent seventy-four 
delegates to the Student Volunteer Convention at 
Kansas City.

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 
concentration. 

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. 



ALFRED NOYES 

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 
up. 

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.

letic Association of the University and publication

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. 



CLASS REUNIONS FOR COMMENCEMENT 

The classes scheduled to hold reunions during Commence-

one-, five-, ten-, twenty-, twenty-five-, and fifty-year gradu- 
ates. Members of these classes will facilitate prepara-

NEW YORK NOTES 

Rufus L. Patterson, '93, has scored a marked success as 
President of the North Carolina Society of New York. The 
Society now has 250 members, composed of native North 
Carolinians and men who have resided in North Carolina. 
Under President Patterson's direction, the organization is 
holding several entertainments this season. The next h to be 
the Easter Dance, on April 17, at the New Hotel Biltmore. 

A. Marvin Carr, '02, spent two or three weeks in Kansas 
City, recently, with his wife's family. 

Louis G. Rountree '05, has occasion to make frequent short 
trips to the South in connection with the business of the 
firm to which he is attached, R. H. Rountree & Co. 

Holland Thompson, '95, is still active as a contributor to and 
editor of the Book of Knowledge. He combines this, still, 
with his teaching.

of the Board of Aldermen. 

Dr. Henry C. Cowles made a hurried trip to Statesville 



a month or two ago, on the occasion of the death of his 
father. 

Alfred W. Haywood, Jr., '04, has become a member of a 
cavalry organization known as Squadron A. He goes to drill 
every Wednesday night, and once or twice some of his North 
Carolina friends have visited the armory on Madison Avenue 
to see the manoeuvers of his troop. They have also had the 
pleasure of loafing with him at the Squadron Club nearby. 
The club is a most comfortable, informal sort of place, in 
which the decorations and pictures all pertain to war. 

James A. Gwyn '96, Francis A. Gudger '98, and the other 
golf enthusiasts among the alumni are yearning for the be- 
ginning of the open season. They try to get in some indoor 
golf, as a substitute.

ness. 

George B. Wills, '95, who until last year was a partner 
in the firm of Wills and Marvin, has launched a contracting 
business of his own, and already has several buildings under 
way. 

Robert Strange, Jr., '13, James Patterson, '10, and several 
of the alumni who are pursuing studies at Columbia, have 
joined the North Carolina Society of New York as "student 
members". They entered under a constitutional amendment, 
adopted this winter, providing for the admission of persons 
residing temporarily in New York for the purpose of pursu- 
ing studies. 

T. Holt Haywood, '07, continues with Victor & Achelis,

other Southern towns.

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 



143 



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 
most important. 

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.

this committee has already begun to devise ways and means of

being considered by the committee, which, if carried out, will

1913 

— 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.

an expert accountant. 

1857 
Nathan Bryan Whitfield 

Colonel Nathan Bryan Whitfield died at his home on North 
Queen street, in Kinston, N. C, on March 21, after long 
suffering. Death was due in part to a stroke of paralysis 
suffered several years ago, from which he at one time was 
apparently greatly improved, but recently relapsed. Colonel 
Whitfield was more than 70 years old and was one of Kin- 
ston's best-known citizens. Dr. Wm. Cobb Whitfield, a son, 
of Pitt county, and three daughters survive. 

Colonel Whitfield was a native of eastern North Carolina. 
His father, Maj.-Gen. Whitfield of the North Carolina militia, 
and at one time famous state senator, operated the first 
steamer on Neuse river. Colonel Whitfield graduated from 
the University of North Carolina in the class of 1857. He 
served in several public offices, including that of representa- 
tive in the General Assembly prior to the war between the 
states. In the field against the northern forces, he served 
as the commanding officer of the Eighth North Carolina 
regiment, principally engaged along the coast. After the war, 
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.

He taught in Duplin County for two years after graduation 
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.

We are all praise for the fellow who can 
win! By the by, you fellows started a 
winner a few years ago. We first offered 
Fatima Cigarettes for sale in the college 
towns. We put excellent tobacco in this 
smoke — we watched you! Quick enough 
you discovered them, and that the tobacco 
was likable, and from this small begin- 
ning they have kept going" all over 
this big country until today they are the 
biggest selling cigarette in the U. S. A.! 
Plain package, but 20 choice ones.
