THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
PRESIDENTS VENABLE The resignation, on account
AND GRAHAM f incompletely restored
health, of Dr. Francis P.
Venable as President of the University and the selec-
tion by the Board of Trustees of Acting President
Edward Kidder Graham as his successor, focuses
attention upon the great service rendered the Uni-
versity by Dr. Venable during the fourteen years in
which he has filled the position of President, and
points to the prospective course of the institution
under its new head.
In 1900, after twenty years of service as Professor
of Chemistry and participation in all movements
tending to the sound development of the University,
Dr. Venable was placed at the bead of the institu-
tion. He brought to his office scholarship of widely
recognized distinction and ideals which through the
years of his administration have found constant ex-
pression in the upbuilding of a great physical univer-
sity plant, in the gathering together of a faculty of
distinctive scholarly attainment, and in the setting
up of standards which, however tested, stand out
pre-eminently as of the highest university order.
From a student body of 500 and a physical equip-
ment of ten buildings, the numbers in the fourteen
years increased to 900, and twenty-four, respective-
ly. The faculty grew from 35 to 83, and the ex-
cellence of the work of the University, despite the fact
that throughout the entire period the University's in-
come per student ranged way below that of the aver-
age American University, placed it and kept in the
front rank of the institutions of the country.
Such, in part, has been the magnitude of the ser-
vice rendered by President Venable. Such, again
in part, the very great value of his labor. And such
the firm foundation he has left upon which his suc-
cessor, President Graham, is to build. That Presi-
dent Venable has been able to accomplish so much,
that while no longer at the head he is still to render
the University a continuing splendid service, is cause
for genuine congratulation on the part of University
and State alike, and while in no way lessening the
regret which faculty, students, alumni, and citizen-
ship feel incident to his continued imperfect health
and consequent relinquishment of the Presidency,
prompts the heart-felt wish of all that he may long
see the institution go forward to which he has given
so unreservedly of body, mind, and heart.
The course of the University under President
Graham, while still at its very beginning, is none the
less clear. His connection with the University since
1S94, with the exception of one year spent in teach-
ing in the city schools of Charlotte and two years
spent, in the graduate school of Columbia Univer-
sity, has been unbroken. He has served as Librarian,
as Instructor, as Associate Professor, as Professor,
as Dean, and finally, as Acting President. He has
gained not only such knowledge of each position filled
as is ordinarily acquired by one in the performance
of regular duties, but that also which comes from
keen observation of all that goes on within a Uni-
versity and from definite, penetrating study of Uni-
versity problems as presented in the publications of
experts in the field of University administration.
His knowledge of this particular University and of
universities in general is consequently first hand,
President Graham's knowledge of North Carolina
is equally extensive and definite. A native of Char-
lotte and Mecklenburg county, he has the back-
ground of a thoroughly representative North Caro-
linian. To this he has added the acquisitions which
accrue from a wide association with the citizenship
of the State and from an intelligent, analytical inves-
tigation of its educational, economic, and social needs.
And in combination with these and vitalizing the
whole, he possesses an outreaehing sympathy which
stops nothing short of a thoroughly genuine desire to
enter into all the experiences of men which lie deep-
est within their innermost hearts.
Three other characteristics stand out pre-eminent-
ly : lie has the genuius of the teacher and the per-
sonality and power of the instinctive leader.
Coming to the Presidency with such knowledge
and abilities as 'these at a time when the State is
ready for purposeful leadership. President Graham
may be expected to chart the University along the
following course :
First, it is to continue to be a university in the
highest sense. Primarily it must function in the
terms of a true university. Soundness of scholar-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ship and fidelity to the highest standards of univer-
sity conduct must be rigidly maintained.
Second, it is to be a state-wide university, meeting
every need wheresoever it may arise in the State, in
so far as it may be able to meet it without detriment
to its inner life.
Third, it is to be now and always the State's great
University and as such shall receive in support and
favor not the least which North Carolina can give it
for decency's sake, but rather the most that a people
served by it and proud of it can give it for 'the in-
creasingly larger service which it shall be its con-
stant endeavor to render.
Thirty-seven years old; possessed of an optimism
thoroughly contagious ; backed by the unanimous sup-
port of Trustees, students, alumni, and faculty ; and
recognized by all North Carolina as a leader of rare
sympathy and power, President. Graham faces the
carrying out of an aggressive program of this pur-
poseful sort. For success in this high undertaking
alma mater wishes him strength to his arm and bids
him God speed.
THE EMERSON Among the announcements made
STADIUM a t the University in recent years,
few have given more pleasure to the
entire University than that conveyed on June 2nd
by Prof. M. C. S. Noble to the Trustees and through
them to the public, of the request of Captain Isaac E.
Emerson, of Baltimore, be allowed to erect on
the athletic field during the coming year a stadium
with a seating capacity of twenty-five hundred.
Carolina is in no sense athletically mad, but on
the contrary stands for clean, wholesome athletics
both for its varsity teams and for every student on
the campus whose body is capable of receiving devel-
opment through physical exercise. In the carrying
out of this purpose, and in arousing 'true pride in the
athletic equipment of the University, this generous
proposal by Captain Emerson will have a large part.
While no specifications were given as to the pros-
pective cost of the stadium, it goes without specifica-
tion, that Emerson Field will be one of the hand-
somest and most modern in the South.
A lover of true sport himself, and for many years
interested in all phases of athletics at the University,
he could not have found, had he tried long, a more
acceptable way of remembering his alma mater.
HOW TO HELP In his report to the alumni at the
annual luncheon, President Graham
made no more significant point than that if the Uni-
versity was to reach 'the State as it should, and was
to be maintained on a proper basis, the alumni would
have to come to its active support. Two means where-
by this may be done are worthy of mention:
First, put the University in communication with
boys who may become students and acquaint them
with the advantages which the University has to offer.
Second, take an active interest in seeing that men
who go to the legislature are intelligently informed
concerning the work and needs of the University.
If you find you are unable to do this, write for
information or better still come to the University
and look it over and then report for yourself. Your
recollection of the University when you were here
ten, fifteen, or twenty years ago needs refreshing if
you are to talk University shop intelligently.
HOPEFULNESS If the spirit of Commencement is to
be described by any single word, that
word is Hopefulness. Everywhere it was in evi-
dence. At the Inter-Society Banquet, the speeches
were filled with prophecy as to the Greater Univer-
sity. At the Alumni Luncheon, Secretary Daniels
spoke of a student body-to-be of 5,000 and a service
reaching out to the hod carrier and every worker
back home. In the faces of 1909 and 1913, each
back with more than forty-five strong, with wives and
enthusiastic supporters, was written the determina-
tion of the entire record-breaking reunion of younger
alumni — to bring the University into intimate, help-
ful touch with every resident of North Carolina.
THE ALUMNI On second thought the Eeview will
COUNCIL make one exception — the Alumni
Council. Hopefulness was not the
keynote of that body. Despite the heighth of the tide
which swept everything else with it and of which the
Council should have availed itself in bringing forth
a definite program of work for 'the many hands eager
for something to do, it allowed the current to sweep
by leaving it apparently ineffective and purposeless.
Instead of comng before the Association in busi-
ness session or in actually securing a few moments at
the luncheon in which to present a definite program
and ask for united co-operation throughout the year,
it turned its thought to some outstanding, interest-
bearing papers the principal of which was spent in
worthy causes of the Association, struck colors, aban-
doned the tentative plan it had outlined, and quit the
field without even so much as electing that third of
the body which, under the provision of the working
constitution, would have been automatically retired
at this meeting.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE REVIEW p] ans f or the Review for 1914-'15 as
announced by the Editorial Board
provide for the following changes in its personnel and
Mr. E. R. Rankin will lie continued as Managing
Editor and will succeed Mr. W. S. Bernard as active
Alumni Editor. All notices of a personal nature
sent by individuals or secretaries should be sent direct
President E. K. Graham withdraws from the
Board and is succeeded by Mr. Harry Howell, of
During 1914-'15 the Review will appear nine
times instead of eight and may be expected sharply
on the 15th of each month except October when it
will appear seven days earlier. Letters and contri-
buted articles should be sent to the Editor not later
than the first day of the month in which the contribu-
tion is to appear.
To those who have helped maintain it this year it
would say that in so doing they have aided the Uni-
versity in getting favorably before the people. To
those who have not, it urges co-operation, believing
that in no other way can they aid the University
more 'than in making the Review a publication of
far reaching influence.
THE PRESS To the State press, which throughout
the year has evidenced an unusually
warm sympathy for the University, and especially
to the visiting representatives who covered special
events during the High School Debating Finals and
Commencement, the Review wishes to express the
appreciation of the University as well as its own.
In the University's effort to make the campus State-
wide, no aid has been greater than that given editor-
ially and otherwise by the papers the State over, and
the University is truly grateful.
Dr. Francis P. Venable Lays Down the Work of the Presidency and is Succeeded by
Acting President Edward Kidder Graham
On June 2nd, at the meeting of the Board of
Trustees, President Francis P. Venable, after a
year spent abroad in rest in an unsuccessful effort to
regain complete health for the resumption of the
duties of his office, tendered, through letter while
still abroad, his resignation from the leadership of
the University and was succeeded by Acting Pres-
ident Edward Kidder Graham.
The letter from Dr. Venable, under the date line
London. May 17, 191-1, reads as follows:
To the Honorable Board of Trustees of the Uni-
versity of Xorth Carolina :
Gentlemen : I had hoped that the year of rest
which you so generously granted me at the last com-
mencement would have fully restored me and ren-
dered it possible for me to take up my duties again.
While I have hopefully looked forward to doing this,
and have so written your secretary and other friends
during the year, T have lately come to realize that the
nervous condition is easily brought on again and my
medical adviser warns me against another break-
A number of years ago toward the beginning of
my administration, I told members of your board
and other friends that I could not consent to continue
in the presidency beyond my 00th year. I gave up
my HfV-work with much reluctance to undertake
these less congenial duties and, I may say, solely
from a sense of a higher call for service which I
could not set aside. I desire now to return to the
work of my original choice and for that I believe
my health and strength are sufficient when freed
from the worry and responsibility of administration.
It scarcely seems worth while to attempt to continue
my present work for the last two years that remain
before I reach the limit which I originally -set my-
self, at the grave risk of losing all possibility of fu-
I, therefore, respectfully tender your honorable
body my resignation as President of the University
of Xorth Carolina to take effect at the close of the
year's leave of absence granted me. I wish to thank
you for your great kindness and unfailing support
throughout the vicissitudes and labors of these past
fourteen years. ^Yhatever may have been accom-
plished has been through your counsel and by the
cordial co-operation of a splendid faculty.
The fine record made by Dean Graham, who has
taken my place during my absence, and whom I
fully trust and in whose success I take much pride,
assured me that there could be no more opportune
time for laying down the burden which in recent
years has borne heavily upon me.
I am deeply grateful that it has been granted me
to serve the University and the people of Xorth Car-
olina, in a position so fraught with possibilities of

service. My work for the University has been a
labor of love and for thirty-four years of my life
such strength ias I have had has been gladly given to
it. With much respect,
Francis P. Venable.
In accepting President Venable's resignation,
which terminated his splendid services in the presi-
dential office, the Trustees expressed through the fol-
lowing resolutions their high appreciation of the
great work he had done for the University and the
State, and their deep regret that he had found it nec-
essary to be relieved from it continuance :
" Whereas Dr. Francis P. Venable has resigned
the presidency of the University because he has been
medically advised that a resumption of the cares, re-
sponsibilities and worries of the office would almost
surely result in a prompt return of the nervous
trouble for which he has just sought relief and might
result in permanent injury to his health ; and whereas
he has served the University as president for fourteen
years, during which time the number of students, the
teaching force, the plant and equipment and the in-
come of the University have been greatly increased
and the usefulness of the institution has been pro-
portionately enlarged in all reapects;
"And whereas the Board of Trustees of the Uni-
versity desires to express its appreciation of the
splendid service which Doctor Venable has rendered
PRESIDENT EDWARD K. GRAHAM
as president, and also its regrets for the conditions
which have caused his resignation, now therefore be
it resolved by the Board of Trustees of the University
of North Carolina : First : That it learns with great
regret of the physical condition which makes it neces-
sary for Dr. Francis P. Venable to resign the presi-
dency of the University, and hopes that this condition
will not make it necessary for him to sever his con-
nection entirely with the University.
"Second: That the resignation is accepted with
sincere regret by the Board of Trustees.
"Third: That this board recognizes and fully ap-
preciates the great service rendered the University
by Doctor Venable in promoting its growth and
progress, and in extending its usefulness in every
way and feels that his high standard of honor, his
Christian character, his scholarly attainments and his
executive ability have combined to place and main-
tain the University in the exalted position which it
now occupies among the institutions of learning of
"Fourth : That in recognition of the work of Doctor
Venable as a chemist, a teacher at the University, and
as President thereof, the Board does hereby establish
a chair in the department of chemistry to be known
as the Francis P. Venable chair of chemistry.
"Fifth: That Dr. Francis P. Venable be, and is
hereby elected professor of said Francis P. Venable
chair of chemistry."
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE ONE HUNDRED AND NINETEENTH COMMENCEMENT
The one hundred and nineteenth annual com-
mencement of the University began at 11 o'clock.
May 31, with the baccalaureate sermon delivered in.
Gerrard Hall by Dr. Edgar 1'. Hill, a member of the
faculty of the McCormick Seminary of Chicago. Dr.
Hill's text from St. John 6:67-68 "Then said Jesus
unto the twelve : 'Will ye also go away ?' Then Simon
Peter answered Him, 'Lord to whom shall we go?
Thou hast the words of eternal life,' " immediate-
ly challenged the attention of the outgoing class.
As the senior turned away from the protection and
guidance of the University into the wide fields
of life, Dr. Hill reminded him that Christ was the
only one within the Universe who could speak the
words which made possible man's complete develop-
ment and the realization of his highest destiny.
The necessity of thinking and living in the terms
of eternity rather than in. those of the present, was
the underlying theme of the sermon. The multitude
whose hunger had been appeased by feeding upon the
loaves and whose curiosity had been satisfied by the
physical demonstration of Christ's miraculous power,
Dr. Hill declared, slipped away when Christ began
to speak of eternity. It was not concerned with any-
thing but. the physical present. But the twelve who
had caught something of the spirit of the Master,
who had learned somewhat of measuring the daily
acts of life by the standards of eternity, who held
the welfare of their souls at some value, remained
with the great teacher, because He alone spoke the
words of eternal life.
In the further development of the theme, Dr. Hill
dwelt upon the vast amount of thought and money
devoted today to social service. Men and women
everywhere are giving of their energy and means to
'the physical welfare of the less fortunate. And this
is beautiful and to be commended. But a service
which is employed solely in the relief of suffering
and the righting of human wrongs, and leaves out
of account the well-being of the soul — which fails to
aid in its adjustment to the abiding, satisfying eter-
nities — inevitably breaks down in complete failure.
In concluding, Dr. Hill appealed to the class not
to become too completely engrossed, as the multitude
which forsook Jesus and the twelve in the practical
affairs about them ; not to delude itself by substitut-
ing a ministry of service to the physical needs of men
for a ministry to their spiritual needs ; but to meas-
ure each thought and act of life by the standards of
SERMON TO THE Y. M. C. A.
The sermon before the Y. M. C. A. was delivered
Sunday night at eight o'clock by Rev. Richard W.
Hogue, of Baltimore. Mr. T. C. Boushall, President
of the Association, presided.
Mr. Hogue, who was formerly rector of the Epis-
copal church of Chapel Hill and consequently in close
touch with the student life of the University, held
up before the young men of the campus the ideal of
service to mankind which looked both to its physical
and spiritual welfare. Always earnest and intense
in his work for the full development of men, Mr.
Hogue urged upon the members of the Association the
need of leaders who possess a militant faith and who
will not stop in the face of any obstacle in the fight
for a physically and spiritually saved mankind.
CLASS DAY EXERCISES
Dr. Battle Conducts Final Prayers. The Orations. Farewell, 1914
Class Day back through the years at Carolina has
had a sacred beginning. In the early morning quiet,
with sweet simplicity and the hush which instinctive-
ly broods over the hearts of men when the realization
of parting is at hand, the class, withdrawn from 'the
tide of the campus, slips into the chapel with the
"Grand Old Man" for a final hour of worship. So
with the seventy-four sons and one daughter of 1914.
Immediately after the devotions, permanent class
responsibilities were bestowed on John A. Holmes, of
Graham, as president, and Oscar Leach, of Raeford,
After a recess for 'the taking of the final group
picture, the class reassembled for the public exercises,
consisting of the reading of the class history, by J.
L. Chambers, Jr.; the presentation of the class gift,
by F. L. Webster; the delivering of the presidential
far well, by 'Oscar Leach; and the contest for the
Manguin medal by four members of the class.
The gift presented through Mr. Webster was in the
nature of a continuation of the gifts of the classes
of 1910, 1912, and 1913 whereby it is intended that
at a given date the combined contributions are to be
used in the provision of an adequate athletic field.
Nineteen fourteen proposes to give $20 per member,

the total amount given by all three classes becoming
available when. $6,500 has been raised.
The contestants for the Mangum medal, chosen
out of a total offering of eleven candidates, and the
subjects of their orations, follow: L. R. Johnston,
of Haw River, "The Error of the Age and Its Rem-
edy;" John A. Holmes, of Graham, '"The Ethics of
American Diplomacy;" Frank R. Owen, of Yadkin
College, "Principle Made Real Through Personali-
ty;" and Elbert S. Peel, of Williamston, "The Rise of
an Intellectual Feudalism." The announcement of
the winner was reserved until Wednesday, when
Elbert S. Peel, of the Philanthropic Society, was
awarded the coveted honor. President Graham pre-
sided over the contest and S. J. Everett, of Green-
ville, G. S. Steele, of Rockingham, and C. W. Tillett,
Jr., of Charlotte, all Alumni, served as judges.
Following a beautiful open air concert by Don
Richardson's Orchestra, the class day exercises were
concluded at the "Davie Poplar" at 5:30. L. H.
Ranson read the class statistics, humorously touch-
ing off the departures from the normal by mem-
bers of the class. The fact that some .$30,000 had
been spent by the class for smokes, the Pickwick, and
other luxuries, loomed large in the total expenditure
of $114,000 by the class since its entrance into the
University in 1910. Another fact, and one winch
elicits consideration of a careful order, was that of
203 freshman entering only 75 finished the course.
C. D. Taylor, class prophet, gave his classmates a
picture of themselves twenty years hence, while J. T.
Hatcher disposed of their worldly effects and E. J.
Perry inspired them for the fight before them with a
militant class poem.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
MEMBERS OF DI AND PHI BANQUET
The annual joint banquet of the Di and Phi So-
cieties is always an occasion of genuine pleasure to
the returning- alumni and to the students and faculty
of the University as well. It ranks as one of the
biggest things of every commencement, and the alum-
ni who attend the banquet in large numbers every year
give proof of the permanent influence which the so-
cieties have upon University men.
The banquet this yar was held on Monday evening,
June 1st, in Commons Hall. It was full of life and
vigor throughout and was made especially enjoyable
by reason of the ingenuity, the songs and the yells
of the classes holding reunions. Oscar Leach, of
Raeford, was toastmaster. For the Di, W. H. Swift,
of Greensboro, a member of the class of 1901, and
F. L. Webster, from the graduating class, were speak-
ers. For the Phi, S. J. Everett, of Greenville, a mem-
ber of the class of 1902, and E. S. Peel, from the
graduating class, were the speakers. Chief Justice
Walter Clark, of the class of 1864, was the principal
speaker of the evening.
Mr. W. H. Swift was the first speaker. He made
an excellent presentation of the case for the uplift
of the average man in Xorth Carolina. "America
and North Carolina," he said, "are today suffering
from individual liberty run riot. By taking a little
thought and care the State could insure to every work-
ing man and woman a reasonably good living and to
every child and xmfortunate person everything need-
ful for happiness."
Mr. F. L. Webster spoke earnestly and was ap-
plauded. His theme was student self-government, and
he said in part : "Student self-government is a direct
product of the societies, and is their direct contribu-
tion to University life. It is a form of government
which makes for freedom and honor, with the aim
always in view of developing a higher and better citi-
zenship in Xorth Carolina."
Mr. S. J. Everett commended highly the State-
wide contests carried on by the societies and the Uni-
versity among the high schools. "The University,"
he said, "should be carried to the people. The rays
of light emitted from the University should strike
the undeveloped talent in the State and make it pro-
ductive to the highest degree. A State-wide Univer-
sity gathering data on vital problems for use by the
homefolks of the State cannot fail to exert a wide
Mr. E. S. Peel spoke on service as the duty of the.
University man. "Your work here has peculiarly
fitted you for a life of leadership and service," he
said, "and so whatever your profession, whatever you
do, make your life one of service." He paid tribute
to the spirit of liberty and freedom which existed in
Chapel Hill and pervaded student life.
Chief Justice Walter Clark considered seriously
the University and its work in the State. The work,
the size, the life of the University is not nearly what
it should be. be declared. Institutions of other States
much younger than ours have outstripped ours in the
race. " The University of Michigan has 5,500 stu-
dents, while our University barely has 900." The
unfavorable comparisons with other institutions were
brought up not in the sense of blaming the University,
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
but in order that a larger view might be taken and a
determined effort started for a better University and
a greater State.
In connection with this larger University, Judge
( 'lark asked if it would not be well to combine all of
the State institutions into one great " University of
North Carolina," with diplomas issued to graduates
of all the institutions bearing that inscription.
A younger leadership must be appealed to, he con-
cluded, in order to realize this greater University and
in order to get adequate support from the State for
the institution. Young men such as the Society mem-
bers present should go into politics not for the pur-
pose of seeking office through exploitation of the
voters, but in the broader sense of patriotic effort to
educate public sentiment towards those things which
will carry the State in its development abreast of the
greatest of commonwealths to the place marked out
and its due and manifest destiny.
The Chief Justice challenged the young men pres-
ent to go into politics and into their life work, work-
ing always for the weal of a larger University and a
Alumni Day was a real alumni day. The old
boys were back not to look on but to take part. They
took a large part, putting class in classic shadows,
union in reunions, and commence in commencement.
Judge Van Wyck's address at the class reunion
exercises in the morning, the alumni luncheon in the
handsome new Commons featured by the addresses
of Secretaries Daniels and Redfield and a tremend-
ous ovation to Acting President Graham, and the
alumni ball games and field frolic, altogether set
apart June 2nd as the big day of Commencement.
JUDGE VAN WYCK's ADDRESS
Judge Augustus Van Wyck, '04, the distinguished
lawyer of New York who was defeated for governor
by Col. Theodore Roosevelt, was the principal speaker
at the alumni exercises. Judge Van Wyck in the
course of an address mixed with practical philosophy
and humor put forth the interesting proposition that
the alumni associations and student bodies of Ameri-
can colleges and universities should have a responsi-
ble part in the restoration of a truly representative
form of government by securing to each of the ele-
ments of the social compact its proportionate repre-
sentation in the law-making department. Labor, busi-
ness, socialistic, and professional elements all repre-
sented and debating together questions of legislation
will reach fairer and better results than anyone or ma-
jority element alone.
RESPONSES FROM REUNION CLASSES, '64, '89, '94, '04,
'09, AND '13
After the address of Judge Van Wyck the reunion
classes took the platform in turn and had their say.
Four members of the class of 1864 were back, Chief
Justice Walter Clark, Judge Van Wyck, Major W. A.
Guthrie, and Capt, J. S. Metts. Major Guthrie re-
sponded for this remnant of the class that graduated
in time to rush into the war. Primed for battle
again he vigorously declared war against Mexico and
carried the flag as far as Panama.
Mr. Thomas S. Rollins, of Asheville, the state bar
association's youngest president, spoke for the class
of 1894; Mr.' Albert Cox, of Raleigh, for 1904; Mr.
W. P. Grier, of Gastonia, for 1909 ; and Mr. A. L. M.
Wiggins and Mr. Douglas Rights for 1913. The class
of 1913 had forty-five men at the reunion and six
others who are now members of undergraduate
classes. The class of 1909 had forty-one men back
and three others who dropped out into later classes.
These two classes smashed all reunion records. When
Charles W. Tillett, Jr., and Lee Wiggins start some-
thing they always put it across.
The Alumni luncheon which filled the spacious din-
ing room with five hundred men signalized the open-
ing of Swain Hall, the new Commons. Gen. Julian
S. Carr, president of the Alumni Association, turned
the meeting over to Mr. Victor S. Bryant who im-
mediately called for the report of the Acting Presi-
In making his report Acting President Graham
said that instead of giving an account of the work of
the past, even so recent a past as the year just gone,
he preferred to sav a direct word or two about the
present and immediate future.
He spoke first of the most conspicuous present work
of the University, its extension work, and referred
the alumni to the report of the Director rather than
reviewing that report. What had been done was a
proposal and a promise rather than an achievement,
To the forces of the Extension work are to be
added Professor E. C. Branson and E. R, Rankin. It.
is desired too to issue from the Extension Depart-
ment a popular journal to reach all of the people.
He spoke of the ways in which the alumni asso-
ciation can be of practical service in increasing the

value of the Extension Department. " Every reason
that suggests that the University should do extension
work," President Graham declared, "is a good rea-
son that our alumni associations should assume lead-
ership in their local communities in educational and
civic activities. Our extension work will never be
what it should be until every association is a depart-
ment of it and every alumnus a representative of
"But after all, 'the main consideration about a Uni-
versity can never be extension work. Extension work
is a sign of life ; the main question after finding out
that the organization is alive is: what sort of
organization is it ? What sort of University is it ?"
In considering briefly this question, President Gra-
ham said that when it comes to fostering an institu-
tion of learning such as this no standard of mediocrity
is possible ; that it was folly educationally and finan-
cially to provide the least possible for decency's sake
rather than the most possible for efficiency's sake ; and
that North Carolina can easily afford to give the Uni-
versity of North Carolina the funds necessary to do
the work that the State needs and asks her to do ; and
that that institution will not remain a University that
has not the means to sustain its life on a parity with
other institutions in its class.
He showed how the funds available for yearly
maintenance were far less than those of other in-
stitutions and how heavy the consequent loss had
been in the faculty. lie laid great stress on the ne-
cessity of keeping the best possible men, as the secret
of a truly efficient college. The efficiency of the col-
lege can be measured by the efficiency of its faculty
and the efficiency of its faculty can almost be meas-
ured by the salary scale.
He spoke in conclusion of the present spirit that
actuated the University as one of aggressive confi-
dence and optimism founded on the belief that the
University would more and more come to be recog-
nized as an organic part of the whole life of the whole
Secretary Daniels in the spirit of this report took
advanced ground for a greater University of North
Carolina ministering to the needs of all the people.
"In five years the institution should be instructing
5,000 young men. and women, and every citizen, hod
carrier and man of affairs alike is looking to these
hills for help." Secretary Redfield in commenting
upon the strain of keeping the University at the front
of American universities, called upon the alumni as
they loved the young man at the head of the institu-
tion to take the burden from his shoulders. Judge
Van Wyck was in his best mood and kept the gather-
ing in an uproar of fun. Other good talks were made
and the luncheon adjourned to the ball field.
THE PACE SET BY 1909
A class that while in the University inaugurated
Junior Week, astounded the college with a howling
three-ring circus, and that has kept a University front
since it entered in 1905, was back with all its old
pep, fine fellowship, and boyish playfulness. Eor a
year Tillett, Winslow, Umstead and company have
been hammering away at the reunion idea until it
broke irresistibly into a spirit that brought naughty-
niners back from Montana, Wisconsin and New York.

THE BALL GAMES
Two ball games were played in the afternoon., 1904
vs. 1909 and 1913 vs. 1914. The l!)04 team with
Albert Cox, Jacocks, and Burton Smith as a recruit-
ing nucleus won the first game by a good difference —
the s we was the least essential part of the game.
The championship Senior team captured a pretty
game from 1913 by the score of 4 to 3. Hansom and
Angel out-battcried Kennedy and Phillips by a
slight margin. In most part the teams presented
straight class lineups, but the drafting by 1904 of
such ringers as Jesse Oldham, '94, and Bill Carr, '03,
brought flashes from Carolina stars that had receded

t" run for a batter, made the circuit in Bolin Hall's
machine, his first ride in an automobile during his
forty odd summers. At a turning point in the game,
critical with hilarity, the umpire made a decision that
struck the suffrage wing of 1909 as smelling to
heaven. These militants with their suffrage banners
rushed upon Cy and routed him from his step ladder.
They tripped on their dresses and the devoted umpire

HONORABY DEGREE CONFESSED ON HENBY SMITH, THE
While the ball game between 1904 and 1909 was
under its jocular way, a long dark line emerged un-
heralded from the woods and marched silently across
the field, forty strong. Horny Handed Eenry in the
van, solmenly gowned in black. "Long Hill" .1 is
was there with his pressing iron, "Short Bill" had
his broom, George Trice was there with shoes across
his venerable shoulders. Bill McDade with bis clothes
basket, chefs, cooks, janitors, waiters, drivers and
bootblacks, all were there from the campus and by-
ways of Chapel Hill, each with the sign of his trade.
Ah him! Who had so often cried out to everyone id'

In. front of the crowd mi the bleachers ibis black
host stopped and formed a semi-circle around Henry
Smith, the college bell-ringer. Mr. W. P. Grier,
president of the class of 1909, announced that a de-
gree was to be conferred on the bell-ringer for his
long service and unfailing courtesy. The spokesman
for the class came forward and said:
"Mr. President, I have the honor to present to you
for the degree of L. L. D. D. (Learned Loyal Ding
Donger), Horny Handed Henry, father of the hours,
doctor of time, keeper of the heavens, by whose watch
the sun takes its course in Chapel Hill. In his loyalty
to that watch he has more than one time commanded
the sun to stand still. His ringing bell in the years
before called us to the day's task and his clear notes
in their spirit power still sound out across the miles
and the years saying out yonder now what they have
said here always, 'Carolina men, be eternally there!'
''We take great pleasure in conferring this degree
upon you because we feel that in your shambling way
you have gathered into your life the simple teaching
of a university that would leave in every son a horny
hand and a courtly heart."
The honorary degree hood, consisting of a rope
with dangling bell, was put over Henry's head. His as-
sembled peers pressed up to shake his hand, the crowd
applauded, and bootblacks shined his shoes. "Long
Bill " took Henry's hand and ironed out the horny
places. Bill McDade on the side hooded "Short Bill"
with a clothes basket. One of the suffragettes broke
up the ceremony by reciting through a megaphone,
"Hail to thee, blithe spirit, bird thou never wert."
And the procession was again lost in the woods as
'the deep bass voices sang "Ole Time Religion."

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Secretary Redfield Calls the Graduates to a Life of High Thinking
The address to the graduating class by the Hon.
William C. Redfield, Secretary of Commerce in Pres-
ident Wilson's Cabinet, and the formal announce-
ent, by Governor Locke Craig, of the selection of
Edward Kidder Graham as the president of the
University to succeed Dr. Francis P. Venable, re-
signed, were the memorable features of Wednesday
June 3rd, the concluding day of commencement,
The formal exercises began, at 10 :45 A. M. with
the procession to Memorial Hall long after the cam-
pus had filled with the largest gathering of visitors
and residents of Orange assembled at the Univer-
sity in years. Within Memorial Hall, which was
filled to 'the brim, the invocation was offered by Rev.
Richard W. Hogue and Secretary Redfield was pre-
sented by President Graham.
Taking as his subject "Thorough Thinking," Sec-
retary Redfield spoke in part as follows :
"I have had in mind, in thinking of this occasion,
an athlete's training for a strenuous race. His work
of preparation has been long and arduous. Its results
are concentrated in the strong nerve and responsive
body of the runner who crouches waiting soon to start
upon the course 'that will test brain and limb and
heart. You have been through the training of
the mind. The question, 'Are you ready?' has been
asked and answered and you wait the word 'Go.'
We have a certain right to expect from the runner
that he shall be well able to run his course with
credit, We have a certain right to expect from you
the results normal from trained minds. We assume
that you can think, and think straight, and think far ;
for you have been so developed in mind as to discern
and put aside the superficial foam of thought, and
grasp and utilize realities.
"Since, then, we may fairly expect of you thinking
that shall be clear and lucid, let us discuss together
the need that exists in our country for what I may
call 'thorough thinking.' Believe me, this is not to
be a discourse on psychology, though it has to do with
habits of mind. We are concerned together about
certain practical things which will have a bearing up-
on your own happiness and usefulness ; which may
lift you up or pull you down ; which may mean the
difference between your being a leader or a follower ;
which may make you creative or leave you imitative.
TWO TYPES OF THOUGHT
"We find, as we look out into the world, two broad-
ly defined types of thought, or perhaps we would
better say — two different methods of thinking. One
is long-distance thinking and the other is local. One
is profound and the other is superficial. One is ex-
tensive and looks abroad ; the other is intensive and
stays at home. One is world-wide; the other self-
centered. One is international ; the other parochial.
One is altruistic ; the other inclined to be selfish. One
takes all time within its scope ; the other is of the day
or hour. One deals with the past and looks to fho
future; the other exists for the present alone. One
is broad and long ; the other narrow and short. One
is telescopic in its range and sees all things large; the
other is miscroscopic in its scope, save that it does not
enlarge the small things that it sees. A man of the
one type becomes an empire builder or leads a nation,
an industry, or an army. He tears from nature some
secret and lifts mankind one step farther on the
heights of power. The other wonders why they do
these things that way and criticises that which he
lacks power to create. The one, as an orator has said,
may forget himself into immortality ; the other pru-
dently sinks himself into a nameless grave.
THE NARROW THINKER THE CRITIC
"Everywhere about us as we go in life we find two
contrasting and conflicting- types of thought — the one
intent unon the things of the moment, localized, con-
centrated, small ; the other seeing these things in the
relation to the larger movement, his thought exten-
sive, inclusive, broad, and large. The one criticises
the half-done job; the other looks toward the complet-
ed ideal. In every college and town and state and
nation are men who illustrate the practical truths I
have tried to suggest, Strange as it may seem, it is
the narrow and parochial thinker, seeing but a part,
unable to comprehend the whole, that sits in judg-
ment upon him of larger outlook ; who carps and cries
about his little segment of fact as if it were all truth,
and, when the movements of life pass on, leaving him
on one side, he catches again at some corner of the
garment of truth and anew lifts up his futile voice.
Of such as these was it said of old with searching in-
sight. 'Eyes have they but they see not; ears have
they but. they hear not ; seeing they do not perceive ;
hearing they hear but do not understand.' '
Applying this principle to the solution of all prob-
lems, whether personal, state, or national, Secretary
Redfield left in the minds of the outgoing class this
moving plea :
"It is my hope for you that we may be led into the
paths of the larger vision and into the place of broad
horizons ; that our policies may not be policies of pas-
sion ; that the influence of our nation throughout all
lands shall be not first for profit but first for peace ;
that we shall remember our commercial and indus-

trial prosperity depends upon the friendly good will
of those to whom we would sell and from whose orders
our mills must run.
' 'Tis excellent to have a giant's strength.
But 'tis tyrannous to use it like a giant.'
"We have the giant's strength and are perhaps in
character and in resources supremely powerful among
the nations, but we are not a bully, nor a creature of
crude passions and brute strength. Neither arc we
people who would grasp a profit at any cost at home
or abroad. The raw forces of a vigorous life have
had their places among us. We have touched perhaps
too much at 'times upon the policy that
'They should take who have the power
And they should keep who can.'
"Our America, however, today sees with a larger
and firmer vision. It is a vision of peace, yet it is a
vision of power, and it means prosperity so far as we
can make it or induce it both to ourselves and to our
neighbors and to those with whom we would deal
'throughout the whole wide world."

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
The State high school championship in baseball, as
decided in the State-wide contest carried on under the
auspices of the alumni athletic association of the Uni-
versity of North Carolina, was won by the team repre-
senting the Sylvan high school of Alamance county.
The the tinal game was played in Chapel Hill on
Saturday afternoon, May 16th, between the teams of
the Sylvan and Rocky Mount schools, Sylvan, repre-
senting the western part of the State, and Rocky
Mount representing the eastern. There was a large
and enthusiastic crowd present, and the game was in-
teresting and exciting from start to finish. The game
was prolonged into eleven innings and the score at
the end of the eleventh stood 11 to 9 in favor of
Previous to this final game on Saturday afternoon,
a preliminary game had been, played Saturday morn-
ing between the Sylvan and Gastonia teams to decide
which of the two should represent western North
Carolina in the game with Rocky Mount Saturday
afternoon. Sylvan won 7 to 0.
Accompanying the different teams to Chapel Hill
for these games were: Blake Isley, '12, principal of
the Sylvan high school; R. M. Wilson, '09, superin-
tendent of the Rocky Mount public schools; and W.
P. Grier, 09, principal of the Gastonia high school.
The State-wide contests carried on from the Uni-
versity as a center among the high schools have been
very successful the past year. They will be continued
and extended largely next year. They include the
High School Debating Union, the Inter-Scholastic
Track Meet, the Football Contest, and the Baseball
DR. VENABLE RETURNS
After ten months of absence, Dr. and Mrs. Ven-
able and their daughters, Misses Louise and Frances
returned to their home in Chapel Hill on June 10th.
On their trip abroad they were accompanied by
Miss Mary Manning, a sister of Mrs. Venable, who
also returned to the Hill with the family.
The first part of Dr. Venable's stay abroad was
spent in Switzerland at Zurich. The fall and mid-

CHAPEL HILL PROGRESSES
Two organizations which are helping keep Chapel
Hill well on the map are the Community Club and
the Board of Trade. Recently the Community Club
has conducted a successful clean up campaign and is
now engaged in waging a fight for better health condi-
tion-. Tn this work it finds hearty co-operation on
the part of the Board of Aldermen and the Board of
Trade. The latter board has not adopted a motto for
the town, but it is constantly at work on matters
which look to its steady growth.

WHITEHEAD KLUTTZ, '02
Whitehead Kluttz (LL. B., '02), recently honored
with appointment by President Wilson as Secretary
of the International Joint Boundary Commission, is
now fulfilling the brilliant promise of his student
days. Born in Salisbury, 1ST. C, thirty-two years ago,
of a family distinguished for public service, both in
this and former generations, young Kluttz at the Uni-
versity early developed his remarkable talents as ora-
tor, debater, and journalist. His classic eulogy at the
William McKinley Memorial Service, his successful
debate against Vanderbilt University, his Washing-
ton's Birthday oration, and his leaders when editor-in-
chief of The Tar Heel, are all vital and stimulating
memories still fresh in the minds of his classmates.
After taking his law license before he was twenty-
one, and serving at Washington for a few months as
Senate correspondent of half a dozen metropolitan
newspapers, he devoted himself to the practice of law
at Salisbury. He was called to the State Senate when
only a month past twenty-five ("1907'), the minimum
age under the Constitution ; and for his effective ser-
vice was unanimously renominated and elected. The
highest honor in the gift of the Senate, president pro
tem., was conferred iipon him in 1909. He thus en-
joys the enviable distinction of being the youngest
man who ever filled this position in any State.
In the General Assembly young Kluttz, who prides
himself upon his pronounced progressive views, was
active in every important piece of constructive legis-
lation. To him, who had the honor of opening the
fight for good roads, is ascribed the credit for secur-
ing the first measure recognizing the building of roads
throughout the State as a movement to be aided by the
State and appropriated money for expert advice and
As an orator Mr. Kluttz enjoys a national reputa-
tion. Twice since leaving here, he has been honored
by his Alma Mater — in June, 1909, when he de-
livered the Alumni Address, and again in 1912
when he was principal speaker at the annual banquet
of the literary societies. His address "Building the
Greater Nation," in 1912 before the New Jersey Bar
Association, captivated his audience; and resulted in
his invitation from Governor Fort of New Jersey, to
deliver the Fourth of July Address at Ocean Grove.
Presented bv the coventor to an audience of ten thou-
sand people, the young orator held them spell-bound
with his masterpiece, "America's Heritage from the
Pioneers." At the conclusion of the speech the au-
dience rose en masse, gave the chautauqua salute,
and honored the speaker with what has been described
as "probably the greatest ovation ever tendered a
.Southern speaker in the North." The press were
unanimous in describing the speech as a superb ora-
tion, which created a furore, and was delivered by one
of the most gifted orators of the So\ith.
Mr. Kluttz prides himself upon havine; been one
of the earliest and most active of the Southern advo-
eates of Woodrow Wilson for the presidency. In his
new post, said to have been tendered him entirely
without solicitation on his part, he will act as secre-
tary to a commission which has exclusive jurisdiction
over all controversies between the United States and
Canada along the great water-ways which form so
much of the boundary. Needless to say that he is
discharging his share of the duties of this interna-
tional court with characteristic ability and thereby
doubtless fitting himself for greater usefulness to his
State and Nation. Archibald Hekdeeson'.
ALEXANDER PORTRAIT RECEIVED
A portrait of the late Dr. Eben Alexander, for
many years Professor of Greek in the University and
Dean of the College, has recently been received and
placed in. the gallery in the library. It is the work of
Mr. Lloyd Branson, of Knoxville, Tenn., who has
been remarkably successful in bringing out on his
canvas those characteristics expressive of Dr. Alex-
ander's fine personality and scholarship.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
NORTH CAROLINA MANUAL, 1913
Historical investigators in Xorth Carolina have
become accustomed during the past few years to car-
rying a burden of obligation to Mr. R. D. W. Connor
and the Xorth Carolina Historical Commission. Re-
cently Mr. Connor has again added to this obligation
by the publication of a work long and sadly needed
for reference purposes. Entitled "North Carolina
Manual, 1913," it contains the usual material of the
handbook issued bienially for the use of the General
Assembly. But it contains much more, and in this
latter portion is to be found its chief value. Up to
this time investigators seeking information as to
officials and legislators in Xorth Carolina unless they
happened to be within reach of a full set of the state
publications, a rare thing anywhere, have been forced
to have recourse to Wheeler's History of North Caro-
lina, or to Polk's Handbook for 1874, based upon
Wheeler, both long out of date and very unreliable.
With this new work at hand, biographical investiga-
tion in Xorth Carolina is made comparatively easy.
The contents headings best indicate the nature of
the book. The first nine divisions contain the current
material alluded to. Part X, Register of Colonial
Officials, 1G63-1776, includes executive officers, offi-
cers and members of the Council and Assembly, and
members of the provincial congresses and other revo-
lutionary bodies. Part XI, Register of State Officials,
1777-1913, includes executive officers, judges, mem-
bers and officers of the General Assembly and of all
constitutional conventions. The time and place of all
sessions are also given. Part XII, Xorth Carolina in
the Federal Congress, gives the names of the members
of the Continental Congress, the Congress of the Con-
federation, and the Federal Congress, and also of
those members from other States who were natives of
Xorth Carolina. The time and place of each session
are indicated and also as far as possible the political
affiliation of each member. Part XIII, Xorth Caro-
lina in the National Service, indicates its scope, as
does Part XIV, North Carolina in the Service of the
Confederate States. Part XV, Election Returns by
Counties, 1835-1913, is one of the most valuable por-
tions of the book, for it contains information that up
to this time has been the most difficult to obtain.
The work is not free from errors and omissions,
but they are apparently few in number and fewer
than might have been expected considering the diffi-
culty and complexity of the task.
State this summer are these alumni of the University :
W. S. Snipes, '90, Cabarrus county; J. M. Cheek, '93,

DR. R. H. LEWIS RESIGNS
Announcement through Governor Craig was made
in the State press on June 3rd of the resignation, on
account of impaired health, of Dr. R. H. Lewis, of
Raleigh, as Secretary of the Board of Trustees. This
does not mean that he retires from the governing
body of which he has been a most useful member
for thirty years, but that he gives up the duties of
Secretary which he assumed at the death of the late
Dr. Richard H. Battle.
Dr. Lewis' services to the University have been of
a most distinguished order. He has given generously
of his time, money, and strength, and in the councils
of the Trustees he has always displayed fine leader-
ship and ability. He is succeeded in the Secretary-
ship by R. D. W. Connor, of Raleigh.
TRAINING THE TEACHER

DR. LAWSON GOES TO STATE COLLEGE
Just as the Review goes to press it learns with
regret that Dr. R. B. Lawson, for ten years Physical
Director of the University and a member of the
Medical School faculty, will accept work during tin;
coming year with Pennsylvania State College, of
State College, Pa. The position which he will occupy
there is that of College Physician.
Dr. Lawson's connection with the Hill dates back
into the late nineties when he starred as the premier
pitcher in Southern college baseball circles, arid in
every position, which he has occupied since coming
to the University he has rendered fine service.

An announcement of universal importance to the
college world was made in the Harvard Alumni Re-
view supplement recently setting forth the
nature of an agreement entered into by Harvard and
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology whereby
the two institutions pledge themselves to co-operate in
the conduct of courses leading to degrees in Mechan-
ical, Electrical, .Civil and Sanitary Engineering,
Mining and Metallurgy, and in the promotion of
research in those branches of Applied Science. The
agreement is to become effective as soon as the In-
stitute moves from its present quarters in Boston to
its new home in Cambridge.
It is reported that Oxford University has adopted
rules which will prevent Rhodes scholars from par-
ticipating in Oxford University sports in their first
year and will also disqualify them if twenty-four
years of age. As most Americans graduate at twent-
ty-two they will be practically eliminated from Ox-
ford sports. This, seemingly, will limit the attrac-
tiveness of the scholarships to American students,
especially those who have excelled in sports in Ameri-
can colleges and wish to continue to participate in
