THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
The coming of the Visiting com-
mittee of the Board of Trustees
in ilay is always momentous.
During its one, or at most two-day — and altogether
too hrief — stay at the Hill, the great heart of the Uni-
versity experiences emotions similar to those of an
individual who has given his entire eneirgy and
means in promoting a good woi-k and stands hopeful
and ready to give even more, but suddenly finds his
bank account overdrawn ! Witliin the brief period of
this visit, all the hopes, all the plans, all the ques-
tions of gTOwth having arisen at varying times dui*-
ing the year and crying for a place in the budget,
have to be brought under review, and measured by
the yard stick of the University's bank account, take
definite form for approval or rejection by the en-
tire Board at its June meeting. If the income is
adequate, the forward looking plans thus crystalized
by the Administration and the committee can be
adopted and the University can do its work ; if not,
their plans, however excellent, must be abandoned or,
in attempting to carry them out', the University must
require its instructors to make brick out of the straw
of their own vital — and unrequited — energy.
Just here is a grave situation. Its gi-avity appears
in three outstanding particulars: (1) the Univer-
sity's income is wholly inadequate; (2) men cease
to be forward looking when they know beforehand
that their visions cannot be realized; (3) and most
momentous of all, no constant, effective policy is
pursued by the governing body to remedy the matter.
n n D
COMPARISONS T„ making this statement the Re-
view does not say that individ-
ual iiicnibers of the Board of Trustees and friends
in the T^egislature have not worked effectively for the
institution, or that at times the Trustees as a body
have not formulated temporary plans to this end.
It does say, however, that a carefully thought out
policy to which the Board is committed year in and
year out has not been adopted and adhered to.
Bulletin No. 60, for 1913, treating of state aid to
state universities and issued by the United States
Bureau of Education, throws, by way of comparison,
interesting light on various aspects of this general
point of Carolina's inadequate income. For the
year endii:ig June 30, 1913, thirteen state-supported
Southern Universities received "total working in-
comes" — by which is meant the total available funds
derived from all sources and available during the
year for maintenance, instruction, buildings — as fol-
lows : Alabama, $160,796 ; Arkansas, $169,274; Flor-
ida, $227, 745 ; Georgia, $246,770 ; Louisiana, $275,-
743; Mississippi, $129,750; Missouri, $1,106,535;
North Carolina, $206,194^— '$50,000 of which was for
buildings; Oklahoma, $225,088; South Carolina
$139,382; Tennessee, $229,288; Te.xas, $625,509;
Virginia, $283,237. In this list North Carolina
stands fifth from the bottom, Alabama, Arkansas,
South Carolina, and Mississippi being below.
From tlie same table it also appears that the A.
& M. of North Carolina, while receiving only $83,-
500 from the State for maintenance and instruction,
as against Carolina's $93,000 for the same purposes,
received $214,630 from all sources as its "total work-
ing income," an excess of $8,436 more than the Uni-
versity received. It is also apparent from the report
that none of this amount was designated specifically
for buildings but went for maintenance and instruc-
tion, whereas, in the case of Carolina, $50,000 was
designated for buildings. On the basis of mainten-
ance and instruction the excess was $58,436 instead
Another fact, and this is the most significant one
brought out in this report, is that after specific ap-
propriations for building purposes are deducted,
Carolina receives $9.00 less per student for main-
tenance and instruction than any of the other twelve
institutions listed above and $98 less than the average
— $290 — amount received per student by these insti-
tutions. Comparison on this basis is as follows:
Alabama receives $238 per student; Arkansas, $201 ;
Florida, $550; Georgia, $353; Louisiana, $336;
]\rississippi, $245; Missouri, $380; North Carolina,
$192; Oklahoma, $254; South Carolina, $222; Ten-
nessee, $239; Texas, $268; and Virginia, $335.
In this same connection it should be recalled that
in 1912 in a bulletin issued by the office referred to,
the University was classed with Vandcrbilt, Texas,
and Virginia as being one of the four foremost uni-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
versities of the South and entitled to first rank among
American universities as a whole. That is, while
handicapped $76 per student in receipts as compar-
ed with Texas and $143 per student as compared with
Virginia, Carolina, by taking heavy toll of the en-
ergy of its faculty, was enabled to achieve this high-
ly creditable result. But this is merely said in pass-
ing and in no way relieves the distressing fact that
under the present system of inadequate, hit or
miss financing, the first item to appear in the annual
statement of Carolina's disbursements must read :
To deficit from preceding year !
SORS WHO GO
One of the consequences of this
constant "pinch" and the seeming
lack of effort on the part of the
governing body to change the situation materially,
is the annual withdrawal of professors and officers of
the University whose services to the State have been
of 'the highest order and for which North Carolina, no
longer financially impoverished, is abundantly able to
make adequate return. And in their going the ques-
tion of salary — though important — is by no means the
only one. The number of hours one has to teach, the
amount of time one may secure to devote to research,
the possibility of escape from endless committee
work, the amount of money available for laboratory
and library equipment, the opportunity of reaching
the public or the scholarly world through well fi-
nanced publications, the ability to secure comfortable
living quarters (owned by the institution if need be),
in fact all those things which the teacher, in common
with other men, brings under review when determin-
ing on a plan looking to the expression of a full life
— have to be put in the balance. And when it ap-
pears that the budget begins with a hope-killing de-
ficit unrelieved from 3^ear to year by a constructive,
hope-inspiring financial policy, these things, together
with the additional money return, til? the beam
THE QUESTION Xhe facts reveal a situation ex-
ceedingly grave. Another fact
equally evident is that the TJtiiversity is tugging at
its bonds trying to break away into a wider service
■and that its instructors who remain, remain not be-
cause they lack opportunity to go elsewhere, but be-
cause they desire, frequently against their better judg-
ment and at the point of keen sacrifice, to aid in rais-
ing the structure of the Greater State-Wide Universi-
ty and find the full expression of their lives through
it in service to the people of North Carolina. The
question that will out is : Will the Trustees whoso re-
s2>onsibility and very great privilege this is, measure
up to the opportunity before them ?
TAKING STOCK As already indicated May is the
stock-taking month of the Univer-
sity. Together with all those who are seriously in-
terested in the University, the Review has been tak-
ing inventory and herewith presents other findings :
THE ALUMNI Xhe Alumni as an organization
have entered largely into the Uni-
versity's life and have done several things of decided
moment. This cannot be gainsaid. The alumni sys-
tem of coaching and the Review are convincing sub-
staiitiators of this fact and are cause for genuine con-
gratulation. But while this is so the question arises
whether or not after having set this machinery run-
ning, the alumni have not too largely abandoned these
interests and lost definite purpose for the future.
The successfiil beginning made instead of leading to
apparent disintegration should lead to forward look-
ing and broader plans. To this end the Review
makes the following suggestions :
1. The Alumni Council, which is the Association's
steering committee, should tie up the exceedingly
loose ends of its present organization and come before
the alumni with a definite program of work. Under
the present plan leadership is lodged with the Council
and if it fails to supply it advance is impossible.
2. It should determine on a policy for its per-
manent secretary and should put the secretary into
the field to carry the policy out.
3. It should give effectiveness to class organiza-
tions, organize new local associations, vitalize old as-
sociations, and set all to work.
4. Co-operating with the University, it should col-
lect the data for an alumni catalogue.
5. It should devise a plan such as that in operation
at the University of Minnesota, or Texas, or at Yale,
or at any other of a large number of institutions,
whereby the alumni as a body should maintain a
permanent, central alumni fund adequate to care for
the needs of the Association in its work for the Uni-
6. In order that it may present these matters — or
others of which it may think better — ^to the alumni,
it should demand— and secure — a real, clear-cut busi-
ness meeting on Alumni Day and not sacrifice the
real big work of the Association to the enjoyment
of a cigar or the oratory of an alumni banqueter!
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Can the Council bring any or all of these things to
The Review herewith says its
last word for the year about an
alumni catalogue. Harvard, has
35, 194 living alumni. In a general catalogue just
issued the correct addresses of all but 1,150 were
given — 3 per cent. The University has, or thinks
it has, 7,000 living alumni. When the Acting Pres-
ident mailed to the alumni the President's report in
January — the most important publication going out
from the University this year — hh was forced to
use the Review's mailing list — 1,500 names — in or-
der to be sure that the copies sent out would reach
their destination! The office has a larger list, but
if it is used too many pieces of mail reach the dead
letter office ! If a business organization depends upon
its various connections, if the alumni are the chief
strength of a college, it behooves the University, from
a purely business point — leaving out of consideration
the use to which the alumni themselves would put
such a publication — it behooves the University to
publish such a catalogue and to do it forthwith.
But here again the rigid deadening limitations of
the budget are met! And also — a convincing rea-
son for a pennanent alumni fund !
THE GRADUAT. In a letter by Pi'esident Leach of
ING CLASS the Senior Class, the graduating
class shows that it is putting itself
on record as a party to all good work in which the
alumni and the University are engaged. Before
1914 takes it departure from the campus there are
two matters which the Ixeview would urge upon it:
(1) That it select its permanent class officers as early
in Mdy as ])ossible, and (2) that it leave with the
University the address of everyone of its members.
Choose the right class officers now, work and plan
for a one-year reunion in 1915, and leave word where
you have gone so that if the University needs you it
can find you and receive from you the same high ser-
vice which you liave always stood ready to render
PROFS. ROYSTER Professors James F. Royster,
AND CHASE head of the Department of Eng-
lish, and n. W. Chase, Professor
of Educational Psychology, will terminate their ser-
vice to the University in September, 1914:, and ac-
cept positions in thoi University of Texas. Dr.
Royster's connection with the University dates from
1907. Since that time he has been a growing power
and has brought a vital touch to many Universicy
activities. His life-long intimacy with things North
Carolinian, his knowledge of athletics, his gi-asp of
editorial practice, his capacity for achieving difficult
tasks of varying natures, his forthright independence
and soundness of judgment in University councils,
together with a rare and widely recognized scholar-
ship, have made him an extremely useful member
of the University circle. Dr. Chase is now com-
pleting his fourth year. Carolina ideals have be-
come second nature to him and few men in the facul-
ty have contributed more than he to the new ideal of
the Campus co-extensive with State borders. As an
authority in the field of educational theory and as a
lecturer widely sought by the schoolmen of the
State, he has visited every section of Xorth Carolina
to the benefit of the communities visited, and to the
very distinct credit of the University. In the build-
ing of a Greater University, whether in North Caro-
lina or Texas, both men are of such mold as to take
an important part. The Review's keen regret, which
it shares with the whole University and State, is
that the Greater University of North Carolina has
to lose their strong hands in the task to which it is
REUNION TALK The alumni spirit is rising strong.
Reunion talk is in the air. The
class secretaries are on the job. The class of 1913
plans to break the reunion speed limit by having a
one-year reunion. The class of 1909 has been plan-
ning and plotting against itself for a whole year for
"an-everybody-present reunion" at the fifth anni-
versary of its graduation day. The return move-
ment is strongly reinforced by the class of 1904.
The classes of 1894, 1889 and 1864 will add dignity
as well as gaiety to the joyous reuning time. Tues-
day, June 2, is alumni day. All hands and hearts
back for a time of genuine fun 1
PROSPECTS FOR THE SUMMER SCHOOL

tion of the effort tlie University is making to meet the
full requirements of North Carolina teachers. Di-
rector Walker looks for an attendance of at least 600.

Alumni Day — June 2
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Nineteen Nine Sets a New Pace for Class Reunions. Catch Step.
The class of 1909 has issued a bulletin of interest-
ing facts concerning tlie members of this class. The
foreword is a call for the members to return to their
first reunion this commencement and the latest re-
turns indicate that an unusually large number of
the class will be present. Answers have come from
Montana to Boston to Florida sounding of the spirit
that has ever characterized the men of 1909.
It is their plan to have an unpretentious banquet
Saturday night, May 30th, as a sort of get-together
meeting. A baseball game has been scheduled with
the class of 1904: for Tuesday afternoon immediately
after the alumni luncheon. The classes of 1914 and
1913 are also arranging to cross bats. An out-
door event jDarticipated in by all the classes will be
the freest and gladdest occasion of commencement.
Excerpts from the 1909 call: "It is a sudden fact
that the class of 1909 is on its way to its first re-
union. It was only the day before yesterday that
we left the platform of Memorial Hall to jam our
diplomas into our trunks, bolt some beans at Com-
mons, say hurried good-byes, and catch the four
o'clock train bound for the life that has scattered us
to the ends of the country. The men who were
once encompassed by the rock walls of the little cam-
pus are now dispersed through twenty-one states and
even to the business centers of the New China. But
old associations are pulling us together again. Mem-
ories of four years together renew their freshness

parade, spielers, after-the-big-show concert, confetti

geography: business, 56; law, 31; education, 28;
farming, 14 ; medicine, 13 ; governmental and pub-
lic positions, 13; engineering, 10; journalism, 3;
Ministry, 2 ; Y. M. C. A., 2 ; geology, 1 ; and base-
ball, 1. Six of us finished with later classes. Seven
are now students in graduate and professional schools.
Two have been in the legislature, and one has been

BONDS VOTED FOR NEW RAILROAD
The perennial subject of a new railroad has again
been before the Orange County public. This time
the prospective connecting link bears the title of the
Greensboro, ISTorthern and Atlantic Railway Com-
pany and is supposed to run from Danville or Greens-
boro to some point, presumably Durham, at which
connection with the Seaboard and the Norfolk and
Western can be effected. The financial agent of the
company is the Southern Life and Trust Company
and the matter has progressed to the point that on
Saturday, April IS, the townships of Bingham and
Chapel Hill cast a good majority vote for $50,000 in
bonds to be used in the construction of the road. This
is conditioned, however, upon the completion of the
road and the operation of trains within a period of
three years from the date of the election. In the
respect that bonds have been actually voted and
that surveying parties have been locating the pros-
pective roadway, it seems that the hope of an addi-
tional connection with the outside world u nearer
than it has ever been before.
Dr. James F. Royster was the guest of the Fort-
nightly chapter of Sigma Upsilon of Trinity College
Friday night April 17th. He spoke on the subject

JUNIOR WEEK FESTIVITIES
Class Stunts, the Annual Senior Show, and the Faculty Game Greatly Enliven the Hill
Owing to an enlargement of tbe scope of activities
and the unusually general oo-operation and participa-
tion on the part of the student body, Junior week
festivities, April 22-24, were sigTially more enjoy-
able than those of any former week, and from the
beginning of the Oratorical Contest Wednesday night
to the last note of "Home Sweet Home" sounding
in the small hours of early Saturday morning, the
whole University was bubbling over with enjoyment.
JuNiOE Oeatokical Contest.
In the third annual contest for the Julian S. Carr
oratorical medal, held Wednesday night, Mr. B. F.
Paty, of the Dialectic Society, was the winner. The
subject of his oration was "Criticism of Wealth" and
his opponents were Messrs. L. B. Gunter, B. T.
Bryan, and B. F. Field. The high order of the
speeches set a new record in Junior oratory at the
The Junior week Girl and the opportunity to dance
here, there, and everywhere, were delightfully pre-
sent. For the first time in years three fonnal dances
were given. The Bynum Gymnasium was the scene
of the first dance by the Junior Order of the Gorgon
Head on Wednesday night. The Easter dance by the
German Club followed Thursday night, and on Fri-
day the Junior Prom was happily revived after an
interval of two years. Informally the Ghimghoul
Order was at home at its Lodge on Thursday after-
noon to the college, and "parties" at the "Coop" and
fraternity houses were quite the rule. And every
where the figures, the music and decorations were
the kind that delight.
Faculty vs. Seniors.
The real fun of the week was reserved for the Fac-
idty-Senior ball game Friday afternoon. All those
whose memories hark back to the mirth-provoking
antics of Dr. Thomas Huffin, at short, or Dr. James
Bruner at third, or Prof. Collier Cobb in the terri-
tory of second, agree unanimously that this was the
baseball event of the many brilliant ones in which the
Faculty has featured. Aided by a Bed Cross corps
with stretchers, ambulance, nurses, and hospital out-
fit, by machine gun to stop the onntsh of Seniors
around the circuit, and — most important — by the
umpire, the Faculty played the prospective graduates
to the tune of 12 to 7.
Members of the Faculty who appeared in the game
and added new honors to those dearly gained in
former frays were: E. K. Graham, at first; J. F.
Eoyster, at second; L. R. Wilson, at short: C. S.
Mangum, at third ; and E. V. Howell, left field. Sub-
stitutes and new recruits Avere: W. M. Dey, center
field ; P. H. Daggett, right field ; James, catcher ;

festivities, the Lyric Concert, happily conceived to

account, proved to be an unusually great delight.
.Wedged in between the ball game and the final dance
on Friday, this event, through the master playing of
Wright on the violin and Harris on the piano and
the rare singing of Epps and Meets, gave pleasure of
that deeper sort that does not lend itself to words.

tween the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea." The Uni-
versity in 1945, as represented in this rollicking
farce, had become preeminently an institution for
females with a female president. All the fair stu-
dents were enthusiasts over eugenics and the Femin-
ist movement had at last triumphed. The exercises
of the 147th birthday of the University showed
clearly eugenic woman's dominion over sissy man-
kind. The play in three acts was well staged and
even better acted.

CAROLINA LOSES ENTIRE SERIES TO VIRGINIA
Since the last issue of the Keview Carolina has
won four and lost seven games as follows :
Carolina 3, Ilampden-Sidney 2.

In the Hiampdon-Sidney game the hitting of H.
Bailey and Litchfield featured. Long and Bailey
covered the outfield with cxtcnsiyle eased The
strength of Watkins in the pinches and Woodall's
decisive drive in the ninth with a man on brought an
exciting and pretty victory to Carolina in the first
game with Wake Forest. The box work of Williams,
two successful throws to the plate by Bailey from
center, and Lewis' single with a man on third in the

eighth, gave Carolina the second Wake Forest game.
In a game abounding in critical situations and bril-
liant plays Virginia won the first game in Durham
before a crowd of 2,200 people. The rallying box
work of Williams with the bases crowded and the
dazzling plays of Shields and H. Bailey kept the
score small. At this point Carolina slumped and
Virginia and Davidson took the next three games by
The V. M. I. game was played on the drill ground
ridge and was characterized by homers galore.
Whenever the ball was knocked down one of the speed-
away hills it was a self-acting home run. Woodall of
Carolina and Gallingher of the cadets both hit two
terriiic drives into the valley of Virginia. The
Washington Post characterized the game with Cath-
olic University as a clever pitching duel between
Aycock and Thayers. WoodaU, who received Aycock,
threw four men out at second. Wretched support
of Watkins' steady pitching gave the midshipmen a
runaway victory over Carolina. The season closed
with a close victory for Princeton at Princeton.
Woodall, the hard hitting, deadly throwing back-
stop, has been chosen by his team mates to captain
the baseball team for the 1915 season.
Litchfield, the swift left fielder, was unable to be in
the last four games. He was left in the hospital at
V. M. I. with a fever but is now back at his work.

panied the team on the northern trip in place of

TRAIN THE COMBINATION" TEACHER
Editor, Alumni Revieiv:
Sir : — I am deeply in symjiathy with the Exten-
sion work undertaken at the University in recent
years — and especially as carried on during the year
just now coming to a close. By going directly to the
State with the good things which it has, and has had
all the while, the University has begun to justify at
last its ancient claim to be the head of the State's
There is just now coming into prominence, how-
ever, an educational need which has not been so ob-
vious hitherto, and this need ought in all justice to
be met at once by the University. The need of which
I speak arises out of the new conditions presented by
the Farm-Life schools now being estalilished in the
State in conformity with acts passed by the legisla-
tures of 1911 and 191.3 which make possible, in
communities meeting the requirements prescribed,
practical instruction for boys in farm-life work, and
for girls in domestic science and home-making.
As a result of these acts, there were operated in
four counties of Xorth Carolina during the school
year 1913-'14 no less than six farm-life schools,
where, in addition to the accustomed formal course
of study, special instruction was given in subjects
which pertain directly to rural life. These schools
were pioneers, hut they have blazed the way well.
Already four other counties have made provision for
similar schools next year, and at present active cam-
paigns are being waged in eight other counties with
every prospect of success. We may confidently ex-
pect, therefore, that the school year 1914-'15 will see
farm-life schools in at least twelve or fifteen counties,
and I believe that the school year 1915-'16 will see
such schools in twenty-five counties.
!N'0 attempt is made by the farm-life school to sup-
plant the old line school; the idea is to supplement
the old curriciilum where it has failed to reach a great
part of the people. And for such a school we need a
combination teacher. Where is he to come from?
Shall we look to the Middle West for him? If so,
we shall have to content ourselves with a man un-
acquainted with our needs, and shall have to give him
at least a year or two in which to study our peculiar
conditions. Such a course would not likely prove
satisfactory. Shall we look for him to come from
any school now established in the State? Statistics
prove that few men who finish at the A. & M. College
have thus far chosen teaching as a profession. This
fact is not due to any peculiar aversion to the profes-
sion of teaching, but rather 'to the fact that the highly
specialized work done at the A. & M. is likely to
lead to other fields than teaching. If this b& true, we
need not expect any great number of teachers from
the A. & M., even though we establish a great num-
ber of farm-life schools.
But even if the students were inclined to teaching,
there would still be a very powerful reason why the
"combination" teacher mentioned above can not be
prepared at A. & M. — the college does not offer the
necessary work along general lines and cannot do so
without a very great outlay of money.
The University can meet the situation by provid-
ing a single addition to its present courses, that of
I am aware that this suggestion may provoke oppo-
sition. Some may hold that we should not duplicate
work done at another State institution. This objec-
tion is not a serious one, however, for many courses
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
are already duplicated at the State's two leading in-
stitutions, and will of necessity continue to be dupli-
cated. Others may hold that Agriculture has no
place in the University's work. This view can, and
should, be challenged. Eighty-two per cent of the
population of this State is rural, and ninety-five per
cent of the pupils finishing our high schools never
enter any college — either classic or technical.
An overwhelming majority of our people, then, can
secure the benefits of a college education, only as it
is carried to them by the teacher; and they will be
interested in what he has to teach only in proportion
as he has something which helps to solve their prob-
The University has a fine new Educational De-
partment, or teacher^training establishment. Join-
ing the lot on which this department stands is a plat
of good arable land of several acres, which could easi-
ly be made into a small, but very practical, demon-
stration farm. Here the teacher desiring to fit him-
self for the new type of school could gain during his
four year college course all the rudimentary know-
ledge necessary for superintending the work to be
undertaken in the farm-life school, and especially is
this true if he would remain over one or two Summers
for the harvesting of the various crops.
I can't take time and space to go into this subject
fully, but I should very much like to see the idea
taken up and the details worked out. We are spend-
ing a great deal of money at the University to make
chemists, geologists, etc., and this is well. We are
turning out doctors, pharmacists, and lawyers ; but
We have failed so far to see that these professions are
directly dependent on the success of the agriculturist
for their prosperity.
The business thing to do, then, is for the Univer-
sity to undertake through the splendid agencies which
it already has organized, and which no other institu-
tion does have, the work of raising the average man
to a higher state of living. By so doing it will
render to the State the service which it rightly owes,
and will aid the many other forces of the State to ac-
complish the tasks in which all have common cause.

KANUGA TRAINING CAMP
Editor, Alumni Review:
Sie: — The members of the varsity squad and the
class teams and athletes intending to enter the Uni-
versity next fall, who are or may become eligible for
our teams, may report at the camp at Lake Kanuga
on July 15th or as soon afterwards as possible. The
camp will be in operation from July 15 th until
September 1st. Mr. George Stephens, of Charlotte,
one of our prominent alumni, has very generously
provided living and training quarters and the use of
the lake and grounds for our athletes. This reduces
each man's expenses to transportation each way and
his share of the cost of food and a cook and helper,
which will not exceed five dollars a week.
The camp located at Lake Kanuga, five miles south
of Hendersonville, N. C, will be under the supervi-
sion of Dr. Charles Mangum, of the University medi-
cal faculty, who is an alumnus of the University,
and a member of the faculty committee on athletics
and the general alumni althletic comtmittee ;! Mr.
George Stephens, who is a member of the board of
trustees of the University, chairman of the general
alumni athletic committee, andl chairman of the
resident committee ; and head coach T. G. Trenchard.
This committee will, of course, insist upon orderly
and gentlemanly conduct at all times. Dr. Mangum
will act as camp physician.
The men who are deficient in their LTniversity
work or their entrance units will have an opportunity
to get up this work under experienced alumni
teachers, who have offered their services, and that,
'too, without salary. The daily program will be :
7 :30 A. M. — Eise and take plunge in lake ; 8 :00
A. M.— Breakfast ; 8:30-9:30 A. M— Work on foot-
ball rules, plays, strategy, and tactics ; 9 :30-10 :30
A. M.— Scholastic work; 12:30 P. M.— Dinner;
1 :00-3 :00 P. M.— Free Period ; 3 :00 5 :00 P. M.—
Football practice on the field; 5:00-6:00 P. M.—
Swimming; 6:45 P. M. — Supper. Everyone must
retire not later than midnight.
The football work at this camp will take the place
of spring football practice this year. This practice
at Chapel Hill has been greatly handicapped by
reason of inadequate groimds and because many
athletes engage in other sports and have heavy class-
room work. The training at the camp will consist in
l^unting, drop kicking, place kicking, forward pass-
ing, catching kicks and forward passes, tackling, short
sprints, signal practice, and running through plays,
blocking and interfering, how to j^lay the dift'ereut
positions, study of plays, strategy and tactics of the
game, and the rules for 1914. The summer training
camp will give the coaches greater time to study their
next season's material and develop it and to get the
men in better shape for the early games. There will
be no attempt to train the men strictly, or diet them,
except through the exercise they get, which will give
them a better foundation for harder training as the
All athletes desiring to go to the camp should let
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Coacli Trenchai'd know as soon as possible, and should

All alumni of the University are invited to visit the
oamp and the alumni players are asked to help with

Editor, Alumni Review:
Sie: — Having decided to communicate with you,

tion of a bit of a visit I recently made to the Univer-
Back for the first time in four years, with business
so intimately fused with pleasure that I was soon too
much at home to make any critical examination of
campus conditions, I'm not going to tell you how to
run things. They're exactly to my notion right now.
A spirit of unity was so prevading that I (who was a
hit- disgruntled during most of my undergradute
days) was in its grip in a shorter time than it takes
to make the statement. No one knocked even a facul-
ty member. This struck me as so strange that I *
made diligent inquiry for a grouch, and failed to
jSTow, if one can't reform anything, there is noth-
ing left to say other than that we on the outside are
proud of the past year's administration, which with
its Bureau of Extension and its permanent establish-
ment of the State high school debate and track meet,
has made more progress toward extending its service
to the entire State than seemed possible within so
short a time.

NINETEEN FOURTEEN SENDS GREETINGS
To Our Older Brothers:
With most i^leasant anticipations we are looking
forward to the occasion of the coming commencement
— the time for class reunions, for the greeting of old
friends, and for the forming of new friendships. The
Class of 1914 earnestly hopes that this year will
break all records in point of the number of alumni
in attendance upon commencement. The University
is making special preparations to welcome back her
sons, and the undergraduates are eager to receive the
reports of success and the messages of cheer that you
will bring with you.
To the alumni one and all we say, lay aside your
duties for a few days and pay us a visit. You will
find here the same healthy, vigorous, u)ndaunted,
forward-looking institution. You will find a faculty
and student body possessed with the vision of a larger
and a broader service. And it will do you good to
stroll around the campus, to visit the scenes that are
so familiar and dear to you, to catch anew the spirit
of Carolina. We who are soon to take our place in
the ranks with you are anxious to have the privilege
of forming your acquaintance. Come back to com-
mencement, and after the festivities are over we will
all go away together under the gracious benediction,
of our alma mater.

CAROLINA LOST BOTH DEBATES
In the triangular debate between Carolina, Virgin-
ia, and Johns Hopkins, held April ISth, Carolina lost
both debates. The debates were all held on neutral
grounds. The query was, "Kesolved : That the poli-
tical interests of the United States demand the aban-
donment of the Monroe Doctrine."
Carolina had the aflirmative of the query against
Johns Hopkins, at Charlottesville, and was represent-
ed by Carlisle W. Higgins, of the law school, and J.
A. Holmes, of the senior class. Johns Hopkins was
represented on the negative by Lindsay Eogers and
Carl J. Weber. The decision of the judges, who were
members of the faculty of the University of "Virginia,
was unanimous for the negative.
Carolina had the negative of the query against
Virginia, at Baltimore, and was represented by Felix
L. Webster and Kenneth C. Eoyall, both of the senior
class. Virginia debaters on the affirmative were C.
A. Bosman and R. T. Barton, Jr. The decision of
the judges, who were members of Johns Hopkins' fac-
ulty, was three to two for the affirmative.
At Chapel Hill, Johns Hopkins had the affirma-
tive of the query and Virginia the negative. The de-
baters for Johns Hopkins were Malcom Lauchheimer
and Avra 51. Warren, with ilillard Eiseman as alter-
nate, and Virginia's representatives were W. P. Mc-
Bain and J. H. Henry. Mr. W. S. Bernard presided
over the debate and T. C. Boushall acted as secretary.
The decision of the judges, who were Messrs. E. K.
Graham, Charles Lee Raper, H. W. Chase, Archibald
Henderson, and J. G. deR. Hamilton, was four to
one in favor of the affirmative. Just after the debate
a supper was tendered the visiting teams, the mem-
bers of the Debating Union, and the Carolina inter-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
collegiate debaters present, in the Y. M. C. A. This
supper, which was simple and informal, added great-
ly to the enjoyment of the occasion.
This is the second year in which this series of de-
bates between the three Universities has been car-
ried out. The feeling manifested throughout all of
the debates has been splendid, showing the friendly
rivalry existing betiveen Virginia, Hopkins, and Car-
one from Guilford, one from Davidson, one from
Hamilton, and one from Newberry.
DR. J. Y. JOYNER HONORED
Dr. J. Y. Joyner, 'SI, for fourteen years Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction in North Carolina, was
elected president of the Conference for Education in
the South and the Southern Educational Association
at their recent meeting in Louisville, Ky. Under Dr.
Joyner's leadership, the two organizations, which
have largely given direction to all forward movements
for education in the South within the past two de-
cades, will be consolidated into one great educational
body and all the forces now making for a more com-
prehensive educational system for the Southern States
will be united. While the responsibility of the presi-
dential office of these united bodies, attended at the
Louisville meeting by more than 5,000 delegates, is
great. University men who have watched Dr. Joyner's
career as a builder of North Carolina's system of
schools and who are familiar with his record as pres-
ident of the National Education Association in 1909-
10, look confidently for the solution of many South-
ern educational and social j)roblems under his wise
and efficient leadership.
GRADUATE STUDENTS ORGANIZE
In keeping with the aggTcssive spirit of the Univer-
sity during the year, the students in the Graduate
School met early in April for the formation of a
permanent organization of Graduate students. W.
W. Rankin, Jr., Frank Graham, and R. H. Shuford
were appointed as a committee to formulate definite
plans for the direction of the organization.
In many respects this has been a record year for
the Graduate School. Three candidates for the Ph.
D. are to complete their work at Commencement, and
forty-two graduate students will have been at work
in the school during 1913-14 — the largest number
ever registered in the University. Twenty-six of
these men are graduates or prospective graduates of
the Utniversity, the other sixteen 'coming from col-
leges all over the country. Three are from Wake
Forest, one from Elon, one from East Texas Normal
College, one from Wofford, one from Harvard, one
from Yale, three from Lenoir, one from A. and M.,
The Dramatic Order of Satyrs, a secret organiza-
tion composed of the "N. C." men in dramatics, re-
cently initiated Dr. John Manning Booker, Dr. Ed-
win Greenlaw, and Prof. Geo. ilcKie. The purpose
of the Order is to stimulate creative dramatic talent
in the University.
Plans have been drawn up for nationalizing the
Order, and with the aid of the faculty members the
Order hopes to place a chapter in most American
colleges and Universities. The manager of the Dra-
matic Club has received without solicitation requests
from other colleges for a statement of our method
of coaching and election of members to the cast, and
the Order has every reason to believe that the Satyrs
will be nationalized, esi^ecially since there is nothing
else of its kind now existent in American colleges. — ■

CLIPPINGS FROM THE PRESS
AT WORK AGAIN
The author of "Alice in Wonderland"' invented
the happy phrase "un-birthday present" to describe
a gift given spontaneously and without reference to
a special time, and Mr. Howells has humorously de-
scribed the result of enforced conventional giving at
Christmas time. The newspapers are in the habit of
paying tributes to men when they are no longer able
to read them. It is better to recognize a man's work
while he is doing it; to give him the sense that that
work is not without appreciation ; and to bring before
the public a man who is rendering constructive ser-
vice to the community. This might perhaps, be call-
ed a vivituary, as contrasted with an obituary, com-
These are our reasons for printing elsewhere in
this issue the portrait of Dr. Edwin A. Alderman,
President of the University of Virginia, who, after
a year of successful rest and recuperation in the
Adinordacks, is shortly to resum'e his work with re-
newed vigor and take his old place among the most
influential leaders of the South toda3^ For many
years Dr. Alderman has been lavishly pouring out
his vigor in the endeavor, not only to stimulate in-
terest in education through the South, but to define
the ideals of the new age in that section. Those
who have heard him speak know how haiDpily he com-
bines the qualities of the old and the new order. He
is eloquent without being rhetorical ; he has the pow-
er of arousing the emotions without playing upon
them; he is the very opposite of those Southern ora-
tors whose language runs beyond their ideas. Dr.
Alderman always has something to say, and has the
power of saying it with charm of style and delight-
ful naturalness and ease. He was one of the little
group of men from the University of ISTorth Carolina
among whom, was the late Dr. ilclver, who years ago
inaugurated an educational campaign in the South.
They were the prophets of that new day which has
come in Southern education, forerunners of a great
educational renaissance, to which they may be said
to have given the initial impulse. As President of
Tulane University, and later as the first President of
the University of Virginia, Dr. Alderman has long
held a foremost place among the group of men who
represent the South at its very best. The recovery
of health which permits him to return to activity is
a matter for ISTational congratulation. — The Outlool-,

STUDENTS DOING YOEMEN S SERVICE
Prof. T. E. Brown, in charge of corn club work in
jSTorth Carolina, was much impressed the other day
with the work of some of the students of the Univer-
sity. He was at Chapel Hill and addressed a union
Sunday, school jDionic.
''There are," said he, "about twenty students in the
University who are doing yeomen's service in that
section of Orange county around Chapel Hill. They
have organized and are conducting Sunday-schools in
eight different points in the neighborhood.
"And they are not only helping the people in the
spiritual development of their communities, but they
are helping them in general community development.
They are interesting the lx)ys in the corn clubs and
the girls in the tomato clubs. It was a student of the
University who invited me over to tell the people of
the neighborhood about the corn club work. There
is a spirit of service among some of the students at
the University that the state ought to know about."

THE MCNAIR LECTURES
In the three lectures delivered by Dr. George E.
\Tinceut, Director of the Chautauqua Society of New
York and President of the University of Minnesota,
members of the University community had tlie oppor-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
tunity of hearing a most interesting discussion of the
present day social consciousness.
Dr. Vincent's approach to the general subject, "The
Social Vision," lay through a discussion of "The
Sense of the State." This, he declared, in so far as
it had been developed at all, in the American, had
been developed along the line of individualism. Re-
cently this over emphasis of the individualistic point
of view had been modified by the adoption, in part,
of the doctrine of collectivism, the two ideas in com-
bination producing the gi-owing social sense of mu-
tual interdependence common to the majority of men
today. He further developed the theme in his sec-
ond lecture "The larger Selfishness," establishing
the fact that -within every individual there is one
inner central self which controls the various other
selves entering into the composition of the total self
of every individual, and that this total self reaches
its highest development only when the* controlling
central self subordinates the individualistic, material-
istic selves to the welfare of the larger self as express-
ed in the good of society as a whole. In the third lec-
ture "The Kingdom of God," Dr. Vincent showed
that in the teachings of Christ emphasis had been
placed on the organic unity of all life, of all society
of which men contribute the various parts. In the
Kingdom of God the individual, like the branch of
the vine, grew from within and derived its meaning
not from itself, but from organized society of which
it was only a part.
The Review very inadequately presents the under-
lying theme of the lecturer. It can at this time only
express the contmon delight experienced by the com-
munity incident to the charm of manner with which
the exceedingly thought-provoking lectures wore de-
livered and trust that later the lectures themselves
In l)ook form mav reach its readers.
STUDIES IN PHILOLOGY
The elevei»ith volume of Studies in Philojofiif,
which came from the press in April, contains: "The
Slicpherds Calendar, 11," by Edwin Greenlaw, who
is now completing his first year as Professor of Eng-
lish in the Fniversity; "The Celtic Origin of the
Lay of Yonec," by Tom Peete Cross, Professor of
English in the T'niversity in 1912-1913, now Asso-
ciate Professor of Celtic and English in the TTniver-
sity of Chicago; "A Note on Phormio," by Professor
George Howe; and "The Antliorship ami Tntorpre-
tatin of The Ek Tes Mbusikes Historias," by W. H.
Royster, Instructor in Latin in the L^niversity.
No previous issue of this journal has shown such
a variety of subjects for scholarly investigation on the
part of members of the LTniversity faculty. The typo-
grapliy and the general make-up of the issue are in
accord with the improvement in appearance of all
IT'niversity pulilications strikingly noticeable in the
last two veai-s.
THE VACKETY YACK SOON DUE
Tlie proof sheets of the 1914 Yacl-ety Yack have
1ieen returned, and in a few days the Annual is ex-
pected on the Hill. This volume is dedicated to Dr.
■Charles Holmes Herty and carries a new cover design
and six artistic book divisions. In its opening pages
this Yacl-ety Ynch introduces a special feature that
marked it not merely collegiate but North Cai'o-
Probably its most attractive section is that of "The
College Year" — a novel arrangement of snapshots
and short write-ups that characterize the big events
of a ITniversity session. The Athletic Department is
enlarged by having the individual pictures of the Var-
sity football and baseball men. ^Members of the Sen-
ior Class are portrayed, not by cartoons nor by snap-
shots, but by escutcheons on which the artist has em-
lilazoned the object round which the interest of each
The omission of the county and school clubs is a
two-fold gain, since it allows room for the new
features with even a smaller book, and also saves di-
rectly to the student body the cost of club assessments.
Besides the changes mentioned, this Yachety Yach
carries the regadar line of classes, rolls, and wit.
Cartoons are in the minority; photographs are used
in many places hitherto held by cartoons, as in the
intriiductions to the various classes and professional
schools. The engraving and printing have been done
l>y the same hands that put out last year's Yacl-ety
Ydrl- : and in the 1014 book they have given another
sjieciuK'u of a first-class College Annual.

SWAIN HALL NEARS COMPLETION
ilay 20th is the date set by the liuilding (■(lUimitteo
for the completion of the new University Dining Hall,
Swain Hall, and at the present date there is every
reason to believe that the Alumni Luncheon will be
serv( d in the new building this .June. The committee
has pushed the construction as rapidly as possible
with this special object in mind and it now looks as
if the staging for the 1914 banquet will be by far
the best in the history of the University.
