MAY, 1914 

Number 7 




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 
of $8,436. 

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- 



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 ! 



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 
against Carolina. 


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! 




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 
alma mater. 


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 


Ailvancc in(iuiries for rooms and correspondence 
concerning the courses offered for degrees indicate a 
large attendance at the approaching session of the 
Sumjmer School June 16 to July 29, and an apprecia- 
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. 
That of Inst vcar was over 500. 

Alumni Day — June 2 



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 



wooded backgi'ound 

of Orange. 

. . . . Circus Day ! And the panorama of the 
parade, spielers, after-the-big-show concert, confetti 
and the rest, rises to our minds as the big tent rose 
out of the night upon the startled college world five 
years ago. 

"Our occupations are as varied as our changing 
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 
licked for the honor. The total number of 216 mem- 
bers, listed as sons and daughters of our Alma Mater, 
has been increased by the adoption of thirty-three 
daughters^n-law and twenty-fivq grandchildren-in- 
facfc. Five marriages this present year ! Colin Ruf- 
fin, Luns Long, the two Coxes, and John Umstead. 
While there are rumors and rumors that are bounded 
on the south by Jacksonville and on the north by the 
whole world, others of us are in the mood to write 
upon 'The Reveries of a Bachelor.' .... One 
thing certain, all of us, mayors, recorders, risen 
young attorneys, pillars of the village, builders of 
bridges, messengers of commerce, and educational 
evangels, are going to return to Chapel Hill for a 
brief taste of the things that were and a fresh plunge 
into the spirit that is. (Come in, boys, the water is 
fine. )

''For we are persuaded that neither miles nor 
niouutaius, nor jobs, nor tolls at Panama, nor war 
in Mexico, nor woman suffrage, nor any other crea- 
ture, can separate us from the reunion of the class 
of 1909. '■ 

For the comfort and pleasure of the alumni and 
visitors the following committee, in conjunction 
with the reunion committee of the various classes, is 
at work on the details of rooms, meals, and other 
accommodations: Professors Collier Cobb, ^Y. S. 
Bernard, E. V. Howell, J. M. Bell, and Messrs. C. 
T. Woollen, E. R. Rankin, Frank Graham, and J. 
W. Lasley. Inquiries of the nature indicated will be 
promptly answered if addressed to these gentlemen. 

According to preliminary plans rooms will be pro- 
vided for the Trustees in the Infirmary; for mem- 
bers of the classes '64, '89, and '94, in Pettigrew 
dormitory; and for members of '04, '09, and '13, 
in the Carr building. Meals will be furnished at 
Commons at twenty-five cents per meal. 

The usual commencement dances will be given be- 
ginning Wednesday afternoon and continuing until 
Thursday night. Malcolm Dates is Chief Ball Mana-

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 
"The Modern Drama." 

A State- Wide Campus 






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 Dances. 

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 ; 
J. M. Booker, T.'j. Wilson, K. J. Brown, D. H. 
Bacot, and G. M. Sneath. "Pros." Battle sat at the 
head of the Faculty bench, and M. C. S. ISToble as 
pinch hitter, made the big "homer" of the event. 
Kluttz pitched for the Faculty. 

The Lyeic Concert 
Though not planned as an original part of the 
festivities, the Lyric Concert, happily conceived to 



aid in changing a deficit to a balance in the Lyceum 
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. 

The Class Stunts 

For the first time in the history of Jimior Week 
the Freshmen and Sophomores had representative 
parts in the gaieties and together with the Junior 
class presented short spicy stunts Thursday morn- 

The Freshmen came first vnth. a fake college open- 
ing. Freshmen jokes, witticisms, and pranks enter- 
tained the house for fifteen minutes. The Sopho- 
mores gave a unique performance with great success. 
The idea of "Everywoman" was applied to "Every- 
student'" and his wanderings thi-ough the Forest of 
Education. The faculty members were ably imper- 
sonated by student actors. The Junior "Third Class 
Show" was a uegTo minstel jjerformauce of first 
class quality. 

The Seniors played the winning card, however, on 
Thursday night, when they presented "The Man Be- 


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.

" HOMER " 


Since the last issue of the Keview Carolina has 
won four and lost seven games as follows : 

Carolina 3, Ilampden-Sidney 2. 

Carolina 2, Wake Forest 1. 

Carolina 3, Wake Forest 2. 

Virginia 2, Carolina 0. 

Virginia 9, Carolina 1. 

Davidson 5, Carolina 0. 

Virginia 6, Carolina 1. 

Carolina 5, V. M. I. 4. 

Catholic University 3, Carolina 1. 

ISTavy 7, Carolina 1. 

Princeton 3, Carolina 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 
large scores. 

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. 

Earle Holt, '02, a former baseball captain, accom- 
panied the team on the northern trip in place of 
Coach Mack who was in active charge of the Raleigh 
league team. 

Patterson, the splendid first sacker who was in- 
capacitated early in the season with a broken leg, is 
getting along very nicely — on crutches. 


Carolina won the dual track meet with V. P. I. 
at Blacksburg by the score of 60 to 57. The men rep- 
resenting Carolina were : B. B. Sears, Captain ; 
Clairborn Smith, Woollcott, Okley, Collier Cobb, Jr., 
Struthers, Spence, Rand, Harrison, Strong, Home- 
wood, Price and Ramsey. 

Dr. Kent J. Brown of the German department has 
sui)plied Cartmell's place as track trainer. He is 
a track letter man of the University of Pennsyl- 
vania and the squad were fortunate in having so pro- 
ficient an expert continue the work of the wonderful 

In the Southern meet at Baltimore, Carolina was 
fourth. The scores were Virginia 57, Georgetown 
31 1-2, Hopkins 30 1-2, Carolina 13, V. P. I. 10, 
Washington and Lee 1, Richmond College 0, and 
St. Johns 0. Carolina's points were scored by Strong, 
Cobb, Smith, and Patterson. 


In the Southern Intercollegiate tennis meet held 
at 'the Charlotte country club the University of South 
Carolina won the doubles and Anderson of Trinity 
won the singles championship. The colleges represen- 
ted were: Clemson, The University of South Caro- 
lina, Trinity, Davidson, Carolina, Georgia, and Geor- 
gia Tech. Twenty-two players engaged in the singles. 
Gates of Carolina was defeated by Anderson, the 
winner of the singles championship. Ten teams were

The referee, W. F. Morgan, a tennis expert of 
Philadelphia, had the following to say in the .Char- 
lotte Observer: 

"Chambers and Oates both in singles and doubles 
have done splendidly. These Carolina representa- 
tives are about the coolest proposition I ever saw on a 
tennis court. In combat they are wonders ; never 
a word, never a smile, but 'up and at 'em' until 
the referee refers the decision." 

The week before going to Charlotte on the Trinity 
court Carolina defeated Trinity in the doubles and 
split even in the singles. Oates lost to White and 
Chambers won from Anderson. 


Press dispatches give the information that Marshall 
Guthrie, of the United States Public Health Office 
and for a number of years, stationed at Ellis Island, 
has been appointed chief quarantine officer for the 
Panama Canal Zone. Dr. Guthrie graduated from the 
University Medical School in Raleigh in 1904. 


W. F. Tinsley, site locator for government build-

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 
educational system. 

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 



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.

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 
season advances. 

All athletes desiring to go to the camp should let 



Coacli Trenchai'd know as soon as possible, and should 
state the time of their arrival and length of their stay. 
All alumni of the University are invited to visit the 
oamp and the alumni players are asked to help with 
the coaching whenever they can.

Head Coach.. 


Editor, Alumni Review: 

Sie: — Having decided to communicate with you, 
it naturally follows that the letter would be written 
on that great day of letter writing on, the Hill, Sun- 
day. This is in the nature of a party call in recogni- 
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 
find him. 

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.

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.

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- 



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, '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. 


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. — ■

Omega Delta is an honorary literary fraternity 
organized March 3, 1914. Its purpose is to promote 
a more widespread interest in modern dramatic lit- 
erature, and to encourage original work in this partic- 
ular field of literature. Futhermore the fraternity

The final game for the high school baseball cham- 
pionship of North .Carolina will be played in Chapel 
Hill on Saturday, May 16th. The two teams which 
are to play this game will be decided upon in prelimi- 
nary games this week. Eocky Mount and Kinston 
play on Wednesday, May 13th, and the winner in 
this game will represent the Eastern section of the 
State in Chapel Hill Saturday. 

The Gastonia and Asheville teams play at Gastonia 
on Tuesdav, Mav 12th. The winner in this eame 
plays the Sylvan High School at Burlington on Wed- 
nesday, May 13th, and the winner of this game will 
represent the Western section of the State in the 
game on the Hill Saturday. A handsome Cup will 
be awarded the school winning the championship. 

This contest in baseball is carried on under the 
auspices of the general alumni athletic association 
of the University. It will be continued permanently 
as a part of the University's extension activities es- 
pecially in the high school line, ranging along with 
the debating union, the inter-scholastic track meet, 
and the State-wide championship contest in foot- 

C. A. conference to the student body. President Ful- 
ler of the local association plans to carry with him a 
delegation twenty-five strong. 


The University Coaching School will be operated 
this summer for the first time. It will begin in 
Chapel Hill on July 2Sth and will continue until 
September 9th. Its well defined purpose is to prepare 
boys to enter the University and to help those who 
have failed to make up their conditions. Courses will 
be ofl^ered in Mathematics, Latin, Physics, English, 
History, French, and German. Mr. W. W. Rankin, 
Jr., Instructor in Mathematics in the University, is 
manager of the School. He will be assisted by Mr.

addresses before that body. On Friday, April 2J, 
speaking to the general theme "What Constitutes 
Dramatic Material," he made an address: "A New 
Transvaluation of Dramatic Values." This address 
will be published in The Drama Magazine. On Satur- 
day, April 25, he made an address on "The Drau.a

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-,

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."

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- 



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. 


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. 


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 
individual revolves. 

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. 

1,000 Students, 1914-15 


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.

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,

thus bringing the class histories up to date. Therefore items 
of information are solicited from all alumni and their friends 
but especially are the secretaries of the associations and 
the secretaries of the classes requested to keep the editor 
informed. Notes on a few alumni in each city or county 
and class contributed every month will be greatly" appreciated.
