THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
THE 120TH r j'lie 120th session of the University
OPENING opened September 10th with every
sign pointing to a year of unprece-
The significance of the opening does not lie wholly
in the number of students by which it was signalized,
however great the importance of that may be, but in
something finer and more fundamental — the spirit of
the men who make up the University.
The Review makes no attempt to analyze this
spirit, but it could not, even if it were to shut its
eyes, fail to note its expression in a constantly in-
creasing number of ways. The new men have been
allowed to go about their duties in peace, the old
men have taken up their work in earliest, the news-
paper representatives have been alert to report the
serious work of the University to the people back
home, the county clubs have enrolled in the North
Carolina Club for service, the Y. M. C. A. has ac-
cepted the opportunity of calling old and new men
alike to the cultivation of their better selves, and the
faculty, to repeat the sentiment expressed by Dean
Stacy and President Graham on the occasion of the
formal opening, is earnest in its efforts to help the
students make nien of themselves — men of fine ideals
and the widest vision possible.
Although the complete details of registration have
not Keen worked out, a decided increase in numbers in
all departments is apparent and the scholarship of
the new men, so far as can be ascertained, is compara-
tively high. All professional departments have rec-
ord numbers and the graduate school, which last year
enrolled 12 members (the highest number previously
being 28 i. starts the year with 57. The total in all
departments on September 30th was '.'71. or 1 15 more
than on the same date la-t year and 85 more than the
total enrollment ( ssii i of l'.H.'Ml. The 1000 mark.
will, in all probability, be reached before the close of
THE GROWTH OF These evidences of growth justi-
THE UNIVERSITY f v ., |, ,.;,.,■ recouat ing of the de-
velopment of the University in
recent years and show what, if all work for its up-
building, the University of the future may be. From
L900 to 1914 the number of students increased from
512 to 886; summer school students, from 161 to
595; members of the faculty, from 35 to 87; other
officers, from 5 to 13; buildings, from 10 to 24;
courses offered, from 111 to 344. Likewise the value
of buildings and equipment grew from $360,000 to
$1,094,500 and the endowment from $131,200 to
$232,775. The graduate school and the schools of
applied science and education assumed definite or-
ganization and the University reached the point
where it could begin to extend its service beyond the
walls of the campus.
With this foundation to build upon, with the spirit
of optimism and serious endeavor surcharging the
whole University, the advance of alma mater should,
and must, be steadily onward and upward.
UNIVERSITY DAY University Day is but a few days
off. Quickened by its return and
the story of the University's splendid opening, the
thought of every alumnus turns back to the Hill. In
order that this thoughtfulness may be productive of
something beneficial, that it may add to the construc-
tive program of the University, on University Day
let every alumnus and every gathering of local asso-
ciations formulate plans for co-operating with the
University in carrying out its great work. The com-
mittee on alumni organization offers the following
During the coming year the large policies under-
taken last year will he vigorously continued and de-
veloped, to the end that every pound of power possi-
ble to an institution of learning may be put into full
service. We know that we cannot have the great and
greatly useful University we want to have unless you
are steadily working with us, and we know that you
are whole-heartedly ready to make 1914-15 notable
in CTniversity history through your sympathy, en-
couragement and co-operation.
What form this shall take, this alumni committee
does not suggest. We urge, only, that you hold a
meeting on Saturday night, October 10th, or Monday,
I >ctober li'th, for the purpose of kindling loyalty and
enthusiasm, and of discussing particular ways and
means of rendering assistance in the critical days

ahead, and of making the local association a vital
part of the University organization.
Put the meeting on a big constructive basis and let
every gathering contribute some idea and develop
some plan of co-operating with the University di-
rectly, or of serving the local community. Do not
postpone the meeting, but let every association, and
every group of alumni, wherever two or three can be
gathered together, hold a meeting — and "put a punch
ONE THING YOU Have you ever heard the com-
CAN DO ment "nothing appears in the
State press about the University
except athletic notices?" The Eeview has, and re-
cently, and by a prominent alumnus who was not
antagonistic to athletics. Of course the comment is
fundamentally incorrect as anyone can determine
for himself by clipping his daily for a month. He
will find that the press, from many points of view, is
really generous of space and that a great deal appears
in print that relates to the serious, fundamental work
of the University.
But there is foundation for the comment, and the
important question is, what is to be done about it?
The obvious answer is move to town where the back-
ing of a city press can be secured, scatter advertise-
ments widely throughout the State, and put a public-
ity man to work seven days in the week. This is
all very good but it cannot be done.
The real remedy lies with the alumni. Can you fig-
ure it out? An alumnus in Charlotte did a few years
ago and did it most successfully. The Y. M. C. A.
here had issued a splendid report of its campus ac-
tivities. This ahrmnus called in the reporter of the
morning daily and gave him the Y. M. C A. story
in an interesting interview. North Carolina found
out next morning what the University Y. M. C. A.
was doing and — that it was doing an unusually fine
work. Another instance is that of a teacher who at-
tended the Summer School. On her return home she
gave the local weekly a column article on the service
which the University offered the teachers of the
county, the result of which was an increased attend-
ance from her county at the Summer School the fol-
University Day is to be celebrated on the 12th.
There are enough University men in every town in
the State to make their observance of the day a mat-
ter of news value to the local paper. See that a story
of the celebration gets into print. Co further and
indicate some of the contributions the University has
made to the county. Add a paragraph about the ser-
vice it stands ready to give the public every day. And
do this several times a year! Let the editor do the
blue penciling. That is his work — yours to give him
the opportunity. i — i i — ■ i — i
ANOTHER 13 y 0U rea lly want the Univer-
OPPORTUNITY s i ty t0 get in touch back home?
If so, the opportunity is to be
found in the celebration of Community Service Week,
December 3, 4, and 5, during which every community
in the State, however small and remote, is to be
brought face to face with the question of its develop-
ment and upbuilding. Again the opportunity lies —
with the University — but especially with the alumni.
The idea, in large part, back of this movement, is
that suggested by President Graham at the Mecklen-
burg County Conference last fall. It is one for which
many University men have worked during the year.
It is one in direct line with the activities of the Bu-
reau of Extension and the North Carolina (formerly
County) Club. It is an idea which gives the intelli-
gence and wide sympathy of University men oppor-
tunity for large and useful expression.
Hearty co-operation, intelligent leadership,
straightforward, honest effort during these special
days to bring worthy things to pass, are the things
which will count in giving the University touch if
University men will seize the opportunity. In this
far-reaching movement for the upbuilding of a Great-
er North Carolina, the alumni are the University's
local representatives. It expects a good account of
them. n n Q
One of the limitations which the
faculty experiences annually is
that of proper living quarters.
This year has proven no exception to the rule and
new members of the faculty are finding rooms where-
ever they can.
That this works to the disadvantage of the Uni-
versity, goes without question. The fact that men
cannot find comfortable homes frequently makes it
impossible for the University to secure them. In
every instance it adds to the disadvantages under
which they have to carry on their work.
The simple and natural method of changing this
condition is for the University to build a number of
faculty houses on University property for rent or
adopt a lease system by which a professor can build
on University land and can hold his house while he
continues in the employ of the University. Both of
these plans are in successful operation in many col-
leges today and one or both should be adopted by the

THE UNIVERSITY OPENS
The One Hundred and Twentieth Year Begins With Close to 1 ,000 Students Present
Eclipsing the University's banner attendance year
at a corresponding date by one hundred men, with
The new Swain Dining Hall in full swing, the foot-
ball team running signals in advance, and with an
orderly welcome to the three hundred new men, the
college year opened with high promise of inward
growth and expanding service. The registration has
totaled 971. All departments have record numbers.
Under the high walls of Swain Hall, colored soft to
the eye, four hundred and forty -three students gather
at forty tables to enjoy doubly the food, plenteous as
the desire, and the spirit of the crowd, democratic
the room around. Out on the athletic field over three
score men survived the coaches' "can" and the sum-
mer camp veterans early exhibited seasoned form.
The over-lording shout of the sophomoric Comanches
was missing among the sounds of unloaded baggage,
dormitory settlement, and youthful welcome.
The University was formally opened Thursday,
September 10th, at noon in Memorial Hall. One
thousand people were present for the occasion. On
the platform were ex-President Battle, the president,
and the deans of the seven schools. Rev. W. D. Moss
opened with prayer and ih'. C. T. Woollen led the
student body in singing the University Hymn.
Dean Stacy explained the regulations of college
concerning class attendance, absences, and deficien-
cies. He lifted these matters of college regulations
into the high place of co-operative unity between
factulty and students. He illustrated his thought by
words of a mountain mother who had with real in-
sight defined the place of the faculty in college gov-
\ eminent. These were her words, ''Mr. Stacy, I
want you to help my boy make a man out of himself."
Tin' large body of boys in Memorial Hall responded
to this mother's definition of a teacher's mission as

President Graham in his address struck the year's
keynote, sounding of high thought and inspirational
with the widening vision of social ministry. He
commended the individual backyard cleaning for
which Vice-Presideni Marshall stands but called up-
on the University man to look out beyond his own
yard and see that the road that passes by his door
leads to the end of the world.
Tin' war has made America feel its intimate busi-
ness relation and kinship with the world. The fact
that people in North Carolina feel the blight of the
war in Europe will help to bring in the brotherhood
of man. America faces civilization's greatest respon-
sibility and greatest opportunity. The college man
is determining now by his work the place he will take
in this situation, unparalleled for its responsibility
As he spiritualized the grind of the tasks ahead, he
counseled the men, with characteristic insight, not to
permit the opening vision of the year to be broken to
pieces on the routine of the day.
Thursday night the Young Men's Christian As-
sociation continued its work in helping the new men
to get their bearings by holding College Night in the
( 'liapel and a reception in the Library. In a rousing
meeting in the ( 'liapel student leaders presented the
college activities to the new men with the urgent
counsel to get into the developmental currents of a
rounded college life. George W. Eutsler, president
of the Senior Class, presented student government and
the spirit of the honor system; Frank Hackler, the
literary societies and the value of debating; Walter
P. Fuller, the various student publications; J. M.
('ox, dramatics; T. C. Bousball, the work of the
Young Men's Christian Association; and Philip
Woollcott, athletics. These men personally represent
high achievement in scholarship, debate, dramatics,
athletics, journalism, and social service, and spoke to
the new men with zeal for a cause.
Walter Stokes, id' .Yashville. president of the Class
of 1913, back mi a visit, presided over the meeting
with his old time ginger. Jim Pritchett, ex-cheer
leader, drew forth volumes of noise. Coach Tren-
chard made an enthusiastic speech, calling the men
to come out for the football squad. The meeting ad-
journed for the reception in the Library.
The Library, converted into a forest of green by
the boughs of dogw 1. pine, and cedar, attractively
welcomed the new men into University life. White
and blue bunting was stretched overhead and wound
up the stairway. Singing, piano and victrola music,
and a casional mandolin tune enlivened the hall —
with its seven or eight hundred people. The fresh-
n ningled in the crowd and had a good time. Ami
anon in serried ranks they charged the allied freezers
entrenched behind long tables of white and by re-
pealed attacks captured the entire twenty gallons.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE TRUSTEES OUTLINE A FORWARD-LOOKING POLICY
The board of Trustees at its June meeting not only
transacted the ordinary business incident to the gov-
ernment of the University, but by adopting the report
of the visiting committee, went on record for an ac-
tive, constructive, forward-looking policy for alma
The report, which contained an exhaustive analysis
of conditions obtaining in the University, devoted
special attention to the critical financial situation
of the University, quoting almost in their entirety the
editorials of The Review which appeared in the
Hay number, and agreeing absolutely with the con-
clusion reached by The Review that a definite, well
considered plan must be devised and put into opera-
tion if the University is to maintain the high position
which it has formerly held.
Space requirements make it impossible to print the
whole report here, but the following excerpts are such
as to demand inclusion in this number. Under spe-
cific heads, they refer to the various findings of the
CONDITION OF BUILDINGS
Upon examination of the buildings we found their
physical condition to be as good, perhaps, as could be
expected, considering the age of many of them and
the small amount of money available for their im-
provement and repairs. Nevertheless some of the
older buildings, notably the Old West, New West,
New East and University Inn, are in such bad con-
dition that tenants cannot be had for many of the
rooms in them. Students to whom these rooms are
rented, as soon as cold weather sets in, ask to be trans-
ferred to other rooms or have their money refunded
because they cannot keep warm in rooms which have
window sashes so rotten that glass cannot be kept
in them. The roof of the University Inn is in such
bad condition that !S rooms have been unavailable for
use during the present session. All this, of course,
results in a loss of income to the University.
We were especially gratified with the spirit which
seemed to pervade the life and work of the student
body. From all sources we had nothing but good re-
ports of the general conduct of the student body dur-
ing the past year.
The dominant spirit among the students has been
one of co-operation and constructive service. The
students have inaugurated and carried into execution
constructive work of large significance. We can mere-
ly mention, as among the most important features of
it. the conduct of Sunday schools and night schools
for negroes, extension work on sanitation among the
negroes of Chapel Hill, the organization of corn
clubs and tomato clubs and Sunday schools among the
country people in the vicinity of Chapel Hill, and the
organization of the county clubs for the study of the
home communities of the students. This work has
been undertaken and carried through solely by stu-
dents and is illustrative of the spirit of service that
prevails in the University.
There has evidently been most hearty and cordial
co-operation and team-work on the part of the faculty.
We were impressed with the unselfish devotion and
spirit of service which seems to pervade the faculty,
and we feel that if the Trustees, as a body, could
realize the work which is being done by the members
of the faculty under certain disadvantages for lack

of proper quarters and equipment, they would not
rest satisfied until they had done something to relieve
the situation. We do not believe that the Trustees oi
the University, and the State at large, realize how
much the members of the faculty are doing in spite of
conditions which ought not to exist. In our interviews
with them, they all seemed to us to be imbued with
a spirit of loyalty and devotion to the University
and its work, and at no time did we detect the slight-
est note of selfishness. Every request they made was
for better conditions and equipment with which to do
their work. Work of a very high order is being done
by members of the faculty which brings great credit to
the University and to the State, and has placed the
University among the four leading universities of the
South. This position, we are convinced, is due rather
to the hard, unselfish labor of the members of the fac-
ulty, under adverse circumstances and with inade-
quate equipment, than to the liberality of the State
in its support of the University.
IMPROVEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE UNIVERSITY
In our opinion the time has come for us to stop boast-
ing about the past history of the University; to stop
excusing our deficiencies by pleading the poverty of
the State of North Carolina; to quit scheming as to
how little the University can get along with; and to
arouse ourselves to a realization of the fine work now
being dime, the splendid visions animating those who
are making our University what it is, and the un-
limited possibilities which would flow from a realiza-
tion of these visions for the education and culture of
all the people of our State. But we must realize, and
make all others realize, that these things cannot be
without the adequate and necessary support of the
The alumni of our University and even our Trus-
tees, have too long adopted an apologetic attitude.
We do not believe there is anything which a citizen
of this State should apologize for in connection with
our University, except the meager support which it
has been given. The time has come for us to consult
our hopes and not our fears; for the University to
cease to be passive and to become aggressive in its
leadership. The people of North Carolina are look-
ing eagerly for jusl such intelligent leadership as the
University, and the University alone, is ahle to give,
and the experience of the present year demonstrates
how gladly they will welcome it. We OUghl to be
forward-looking, to study the University in terms
of the needs of the State, to formulate a large and
definite plan tor its future development so that we
may have a certain, well-defined end to which to
work, and in all our work adhere strictly to that plan.
We ought to have for our own guidance well thought
out plans of the Greater State-Wide University, of
fifty, even a hundred years hence, with the whole
State lor its campUS and every citizen of the State tor
a member of its student body, and we ought to fa-
miliarize the people of the State with our plans, our
hopes and our ambitions.
In conclusion we desire to say that we have pur-
posely omitted from this report many details about
the University, interesting indeed, but of secondary
importance, in order that we might as far as possible
concentrate your attention on those things that we
consider vital to the welfare of the institution. We
believe that every effort ought to be made :
1st. To encourage and stimulate the fine spirit
of harmony and co-operation in the faculty, in the
student body, and between the facility and students
that has so emphatically characterized recent Uni-
2nd. To secure for the University an adequate
income for its present needs.
3rd. To equip the several departments of the
University thoroughly in order that the members of
the faculty and students may have at their service
the best tools for their work afforded by modern edu-
4th. To strengthen and develop to its fullest ex-
tent the work of the Bureau of Extension in order
that the University may become in reality a State-
wide University in its service to the people of North
Last year the University made the experiment of
designating a member of the faculty as advisor to
a group of from five to ten freshmen with the hope
of enabling the new men to go about their work in-
telligentlv and of cutting down the number of those
who fail to return for their second year's work.
Figures at present are not sufficiently available
to justify specific deductions, but the preponderance
of evidence seems to be that in many respects the
plan has worked admirably. Last year a number
of the new men wi^-r properly directed in the mat-
ter of removing their condition- and in "finding"
themselves in the University. This fact alone saved
a number to the present enrollment. Others, upon
tin ir return this year, felt that they had some one
to whom they could go for personal advice in the
election of courses. Tn still other cases advice has
been given as bo the number of hours which could
well be carried, and in all cases there has been a
distinct gain due to the fact, that last year a per-
sonal relation was established which was helpful
then and is cumulatively so this. The plan has
been continued for L914-15 and will doubtless be

THE KANUGA TRAINING CAMP
The Kanuga training camp proved to be a highly
successful venture. Through the fine spirit of Mr.
George Stephens, the father of the Kanuga idea, the
beautiful grounds about Kanuga Lake and a con-
venient club house were at the disposal of the Uni-
versity football squad for summer drill. Head Coach
Trenchard pushed the plan through to success. Twen-
ty candidates for the team went into thorough training
at Kanuga during the month of August. Coach Cun-
ningham, special coach of the backfield, was present
for the closing week of practice. The morning was
given to bathing, rowing and fishing. On the part
of the delinquents three hours of the morning was
given to hard study. The hour after dinner was
devoted to a study of the rules. The afternoon be-
tween three and six was spent in practical football,
such as passing the ball, punting, catching punts,
drop-kicking, tackling, and running signals.
Eight of the 'varsity went into training at Ka-
nuga: Capt. Tayloe, Fuller, Cowell, Tandy, Jones,
Ramsay. Eoust, and Allen. Others there for training
were Mebane Long, Bourne, Hines, Bridges, Blades,
Webb, Arenson, Hambly, Klingman, Black, and
Grimsley. Xorman Vann, '14, and Charlie Cowell,
'12, held coaching classes in science and mathematics.

Bluethenthal, the line, and Cunningham, the back-
field. These men are pre-emient in their depart-
ments of the game. Trenchard still stands out as
one of the greatest ends Princeton has produced,
making the all-time all-American eleven. Bluethen-
thal, a Wilmington boy, was the ail-American centre
on Princeton's chamjfionship team and later coach of
the line. Cunningham, from Washington City, was a
famous Princeton full-back in 1908 and 1909 and
backfield coach in '10 and '11. Tol Pendleton was
one of his products. Trenchard, Wilson and Pendle-
ton planted the Princeton system here last year,
ploughing deep for the future. Bluethenthal and
Cunningham, with faith in this system of Old Nassau,
mean to make it bring forth its natural yield of a
splendid machine, asking and giving no odds or
quarter — only the sportman's chance.
The coaching staff is made up of Head Coach
Trenchard, Arthur Bluethenthal and Logan Cun-
ningham. Trenchard will have charge of the ends,

The State championship contest in high school foot-

the University will be continued this fall. The pros-
pects are that there will be a great deal of interest
taken throughout the State in the coming high school
Every football team representing a public high
school, city or rural, which shall have played and
won up to and including Nov. 14th, as many as three
games from schools of similar rank and shall have lost
none, shall be eligible to enter the preliminary contest
for the championship. Immediately after Nov. 14th
the committee at Chapel Hill in consultation with
the different managers and coaches will arrange pre-
liminary contests for the purpose of selecting through
a process of elimination two teams which shall come
to the University for the championship game. To
the team which wins out finally a handsome cup will
in the event that a team has pla^yed an unusually
hard schedule the committee reserves the right to
waive the letter of the requirement mentioned above
and admit it to the preliminary contest, provided it
shall have won seventy-five per cent of the games
The Raleigh high school team won the champion-
ship in the contest in 1913. The championship will
lie warmly striven for this year by teams from Ral-
eigh, Goldsboro, Asheville, Charlotte, Shelby, Hun-
tersville, Gastonia, Winston-Salem, High Point,
Greensboro, Reidsville, Kinston, New Bern, Wil-
mington, Washington, Elizabeth City.
The committee having charge of the contest at the
University is composed of X. W. Walker, T. G. Tren-

of carrying on the contest will be raised by the sale
of tickets for the championship game.

will be a prettier game this year. The raw and youth-
ful eleven of last year cleanly pieced into a double-
shifting fighting engine is fast developing the veter-

Virginia. Carolina looks through the schedule breast
forward with confident hope.

game in Durham on Thursday, October Sth. This
game, arranged for within the last few days, will be
a big feature of Durham County's fair. It is being
well advertised by the fair company and the electric

probably be a record one for a mid-season game in

A Scrimmage in the Richmond College Game
THE SUMMER SCHOOL GROWS
However judged, the Summer School of 1914
stands out as by far the most successful of the
sessions since its beginning in 1877. A total of
596 students — 154 men and 442 women — was en-
rolled, and every college, school, and community in the
State was in some way represented on the campus.
If special features of the work were to be singled
out possibly none, apart from the steady, constant
work of the students exceeded in importance the
activities comprised under the head of Rural Life
Week and the pageants presented on the Fourth of
July. Under the direction of Prof. Branson, of the
University, and Dr. Lyberty Hyde Bailey, of Cornell,
a series of conferences on rural life was conducted
extending over a period of three days and enlisting
the presence and interest of the entire student body
and many visitors from the State. The problems of
tenant farming, of the rural school, of the country
church, of intensive cultivation of the soil, etc.,
were discussed in a frank, earnest manner and by
persons who were studying them from every pos-
sible angle. Among the visitors who participated in
the conference, in addition to the members of the
faculty, were Dr. H. Q. Alexander, president of the
Farmers' Union; Maj. W. A. Graham, commission-
er of agriculture; Dr. T. E. Browne, director of the
Boy's Corn Club work ; Dr. C. R. Hudson, director
of Farm Demonstration work ; Prof. K. C. Mclntyre,
of the Xash County Farm Life School ; Prof. J. E.
Coletrane, of the Jamestown Farm Life School ; Dr.
Turlington, of the Craven County Farm Life School;
and many superintendents, assistant superintendents
and principals of city and country schools from the
entire State. The value of the conference was so
pronounced that its continuance in the future was
For three years the Fourth of July has been beau-
tifully celebrated on the canipus. This year eight
colleges presented pageants representing episodes in

the history of the State. Meredith College appeared
in three tableaux — the three seals of North Carolina.
Oxford College re-enacted a Ku Klux Klan meet-
ing. The State Normal called back by means of per-
fectly staged pictures the incidents of the Civil War.
while Salem and Guilford re-enacted striking inci-
dents in their history. It remained for Davenport,
with only six representatives, and the University,
with a half hundred, to carry off the honors with a
triple romance centering around Daniel Boone and
two of his pioneer companions and a spirited bur-
lesque of the Niagra Mediation Conference.
The real big things of the school were, however,
just what they should have been — its fine spirit and
hard work. The presence of nearly 100 students
pursuing regular University courses for credit and
of sevi ral hundred otheirs preparing 'for special
positions and for the various state certificates, insured
serious, straightforward work throughout the student
body. Their example was steadying in its effect
and the work done during the term, especially in
the credit courses, abundantly justified the offering
of the courses and their further extension in the
Plans for next year have not been definitely de-
cided upon but every effort will lie made to connect
the school vitally with tin- State's school system in
every one of its branches. Xo part of the University
can be more effective in serving the State than the
Summer School, and it is the purpose of the authori-
ties to make it as thoroughly effective as possible.
EXTENSION SERIES BULLETIN NO. 8
The story of what Catawba county farmers have
done with their Co-operative Creamery, their Sweet
Potato Grower-' Association, their Farmers' Union
Warehouse, and Co-operative Rural Credit Associi-
rion. told by Richard II. Shuford, of Hickory, a
member of the Graduate School of the University
last year, makes up the content of Extension Series
Bulletin Xo. 8, which was issued in a 5,000 edi-
tion in early July.
Three points of interest appear in this publication.
The bulletin is typical of a new style of graduating
or master's thesis required of University -tudents, in
some departments. Possibly more than 100 men lasr
year made special investigations of local North Caro-
lina industries and conditions. This story i- es-
pecially interesting because if is tin- n nl of the
first attempt on the part of the farmers of a North
Carolina county to carry out simple co-operative
principles on a large, far-reaching scale. The most
significant feature — the third — is that the Uni-
versity is beginning in this way to reach the people
back home with information which is fundamental
to the correct economic and social development of the
Since the bulletin has been issued three very
gratifying requests have been received concerning
it- employment. The first was that 50 copies should
be placed in the hands of the leading farmers of
Craven county to serve as the incentive and guide
for similar activities in that county. This request
came through a trustee of the University. The sec-
ond was a similar request from Hertford. The
third was different. Recently a county conference
was held in Watauga. A definite organization
was perfected for the economic and social de-
velopment of the county. A half dozen Carolina
men are on the steering committee and are at-
tempting to bring things to pass. They want this
particular bulletin in the hands of the farmers of
the county for the double purpose of giving speci-
fic information and of showing the people that the
University can be a direct power for good in every
community in the county.
Another fact worthy of conspicuous mention is
that an alumnus trustee furnished the check which
enabled the Bureau of Extension to print the 5,000
THE BUREAU OF EXTENSION PLANS A FULL PRO-
GRAM OF WORK
The Bureau of Extension has been maturing plans
for an aggressive year's work, the details of which
its various departments are already getting well un-
The most important development to date has been
the securing of a definite place in the budget with
something in the treasury to check against. This
has made it possible to settle E. R. Rankin, Assis-
tant Director, in an office in Peabody Hall and to
open headquarters, with stenographer, office equip-
ment, and other accessories for definite, hard work.
Plans for the year include the further develop-
ment of the Debating Union under Mr. Rankin; the
enlargement of the scope of the correspondence
courses under Dr. L. A. Williams; the continuance
of the legislative and municipal reference service
under Drs. Raper and Hamilton; ami the wider
[[<!■ of library loans and extension lectures under
Dr. I.. P. Wilson.
Other lines of work which hitherto have received
limited attention, but which in the future are to be
stressed are the making of definite, first hand studies
of economic and social conditions prevailing in North

Carolina, through the County Clubs, under Prof.
E. C. Branson ; the supplying of teachers through
a teachers' bureau under Dr. H. W. Chase; and the
issuing of special helps for North Carolina teach-

The Extension Bulletin series, of which eight num-
bers have appeared to date, will be continued and
will be supplemented by the addition of letter and
study outline series to be employed extensively in
the correspondence courses and in the work which

SWAIN HALL SEES REGULAR SERVICE
Swain Hall, which saw service for the first time
on Alumni Day in June, has since that hour of happy
banqueting gone regularly into commission and is
now in constant and entirely satisfactory use. Inci-
dentally it is, along with the Literary Societies, one
of the University's principal agencies in the building
up of a fine democracy on the campus.
During the Summer School it accommodated four
hundred students, and though somewhat handicapped
on account, of incomplete equipment, gave remark-
able satisfaction. Since the beginning of the present
term, with the installation of the new oven and the
completed equipment, it is taking care of four hun-
dred and fifty men daily and everywhere is spoken
of in praise.
The building represents a total expenditure of
$55,000 of which $40,000 went for the building and
$15,000 for equipment. The main dining room has
a present capacity of from 400 to 600 people, is
equipped with solid, substantial chairs and tables,
is thoroughly screened, and will be heated with hob
water or steam from the central heating plant.
The kitchen is thoroughly equipped with modern
furnishings, and by means of the extensive employ-
ment of steam, is able to meet with great satisfac-
tion the varied demands made upon it. Since the
close of the Summer School an oven and complete
bakery have been installed, and the refrigerating
and ice making plant have been put into regular op-
The price fixed for board, has, on account of the
extremely high prices of foodstuffs, been placed at
$12.50 per month, an advance of $1.50 per month
over that of last year.
THE FILTER PLANT IS COMPLETED
Can }'ou imagine it? No longer does "Bill" Mc-
Dade, or "Short Bill" Jones, or "Horny Handed
Henry," or any other of the band of immortals break
into the early morning sleep of the roomers in the
South, the Old East, and the Old West, etc., to fill
the empty pitchers on the washstands with the crys-
tal waters from the old "well."' The orders have
gone forth that those worthies, their successors, and
assigns are not to report for duty until 7:00 a. m.,
and are then to fill the pitchers not from the pump
or the open bucket, but from a spigot located at a
convenient spot in each corridor.
The meaning of all this is that the filter plant,
which has been in process of construction for nearly
an entire year, has been completed and is now giving
Inticrior View oi* the New Dining Hall
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
the college and the town a water service that promises
to be wholly satisfactory.
That this greatly needed plant has been completed
is cause for genuine congratulation on the part of
the University. It simplifies tremendously the ser-
vice to the students in the dormitories and it makes
for the health of tin* entire community.
This, of course, is the big outstanding service it
will afford — protection from the risk of typhoid and
other diseases which are contracted through the use
of impure water. Other minor advantages will also
follow. For years the town has been unable to main-
tain an ice plant or laundry, hack of clear pure water
made the operation of such plants impossible. It
only remains now for the business men of the com-
munity to establish these and place them at the ser-
vice of the public. Both are greatly needed, and,
again, if put into operation, will promote the health-
fulness of the entire community.
THE DEBATING UNION WILL DISCUSS SHIP SUBSIDIES
The query which will be discussed by the High
School Debating Union this year will be : "Resolved,
That the United States should adopt the policy of
subsidizing its merchant marine engaged in foreign
trade." The discussion of this question comes at a
peculiarly appropriate time because of the fact that
the European war has focused the attention of the
country upon foreign trade prospects and the need
and possibilities of an effective American merchant
marine. It is thought that interest throughout the
State in the debates will be wide-spread and general.
The method of procedure for the debates will be
much the same as that for the past two years. Every
school of secondary nature in the State is eligible to
enter the Union. Every school that enters will be
grouj)ed with two others for a triangular debate, each
school putting out two teams, one on the affirmative
and the other on the negative.' Every school which
wins both debates will be entitled to send both teams
to Chapel Hill to contest for the Stale championship
and the Aycoek Memorial ('up. The triaugular de-
lutes will be held throughout the State the latter part
of March, and the final contest at Chapel Hill early

CAROLINA MEN PASS THE MEDICAL BOARD
Twenty-four young doctors who took the first two
years of their course in the medical school of the
University were successful applicants for license to
practice medicine in this State before the board of
medical examiners at its meeting in Raleigh last
June. These were :
Charles W. Armstrong, Troy; Ralph H. Baynes,
Hurdles Mills; \V. D. R. Brandon, Statesville; W.
P. Belk, Charlotte ; Eugene R. Cocke, Asheville ;
Clair C. Henderson, Lowell; Joe A. Hartsell, Con-
cord ; Marcus C. Houser, Cherryville ; Jack H. Har-
ris, Raleigh; Wm. II. Kibler, Morganton; John F.
Kendrick, Charlotte; Adlai S. Oliver, Selma; Karl
1!. Pace, Maxton ; Paul A. I'etree, Germantown ;
Robert, 1-:. Parrish, Smithfield; X. F. Rodman, Nor-
folk. \'a. ; David B. Sloan, Ingold ; Charles E. Spoon,
llimesville; Sheldon A. Saunders, Aulander; Le e
F. Turlington, Mt. Airy; Thaddeus E. Wilkerson,
Roxboro; Andrew .1. Warren, Hurdles Mills;
George I.. Withers, Davidson; .1. B. Walker, Union
Of particular interest is the fact that Thaddeus
I']. Wilkerson, of Roxboro, won first honors in the
examination, ami Paul A. Petree, of Germantown,
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
tied for second place. Among the six men who re-
ceived honorable mention were Jack II. Harris, of
Raleigh, and Adali S. Oliver, of Selma.
J. M. Venable passed the State Board of Virginia.
The high standing of these twenty-four young
physicians is a splendid attest, if such were needed,
to the excellent preparation given at the University
to students preparing for the medical profession.
It is pleasing to see the medical school growing rapid-
ly. This year 54 students have enrolled in the first
year class, and 26 in the second year class.
WHAT THE PHARMACISTS ARE DOING
Twelve men from the Carolina School of Pharmacy
passed the examination in June and are now regis-
tered pharmacists in different parts of the State.
Kenneth A. Kirby is manager of the drug firm of
Kirby and Walker, of Marion; W. Jernigan is with
the Eubanks Drug Company, of Chapel Hill ; Joseph
F. Hoffman, Jr., is with the Lutz Pharmacy, of
Hickory; D. T. Briles is with Home's Drug Store,
of Fayetteville ; R. H. Andrews is taking the third
year course in Pharmacy leading to the degree of
P. D. in the University ; W. N. Allen holds the
assistant's place in the Pharmacy department and
takes the second year course leading to the degree of
Ph. G. ; Roger A. McDuffie is also taking the second
year course leading to the degree of Ph. G. ; Calvin
B. Morrissette is with the City Drug Store at Eliza-
beth City ; L. B. Grantham has been until recently
with the Williams Pharmacy, of Goldsboro; J. E.
Lytch is managing a drug store at Rowland; W. A.
Mc.Daniel is in the drug business at Spring Hope;
E. H. AVard is a traveling salesman for a drug firm
In accord with an announcement made by Presi-
dent Graham at the first meeting of the faeulty, two
new committees were elected at the second meeting
in September to be known as the Advisory and Exe-
cutive Committees respectively. The Advisory Com-
mittee, consisting of five members, is to aid the
president in the development of plans and policies
for the University. It is to meet only occasionally
and will have nothing to do with discipline.
The Executive Committee is to be what its name
signifies — an executive committee to see that the
various rules and regulations of the University are
carried out. It will have charge of discipline
and the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Mr.
Stacy, is to be its chairman.
As a result of the election the following members
of the faculty were chosen for service for the year:
Advisory Committee: Deans M. H. Stacy and L.
P. McGehee and Drs. H. V. Wilson, W. C. Coker,
and George Howe.
Executive Committee: Deans M. H. Stacy and A.
H. Patterson and Drs. H. M. Wagstaff and C. W.
These two committees replace what in recent years
has been known as the Executive Committee and
relieve President Graham from direct supervision
of matters of student, conduct.
NINETEEN ELEVEN STARTED THE MOVEMENT!
Editor Alttmni Review:
Sir: — I notice that the last Alumni Review refer-
red to the fact that the Classes >f 1910, 1012, 1913
and lilll had decided, as their gifts to the Univer-
sity, to contribute toward a new Athletic Field. The
Class of 1011 was left out. As a member of that
Class who knows whereof he speaks, I beg to ad-
vise that we not only decided to make this use of
our gift money, but under the inspiration of Mr.
Chas. Woollen started the movement. There may
be some who would like to contest the latter part
of that statement. If so, they may have the privi-
lege of meeting Rube Oliver, G. W. Thompson and
C. L. Williams anywhere, naming their own weapons.
There also may be some who will claim that the
members of the largest Class that ever graduated
from the University are not paying the notes in favor
of the Athletic Field which they signed and, there-
fore, are not worth considering. To those I will
say that I am almost sure that I have paid one of
mine. However, I do not think that anyone will
say that our Class did not solemnly resolve to give
all the money our Treasurer could collect to our Alma
Mater for the purpose of helping her to have a
better Athletic Field. Until we fall down on the
job, we think we deserve to be mentioned with the

THE NORTH CAROLINA CLUB ORGANIZES
Tlie North Carolina Club was organized on Fri-
day evening, September 25th, in Gerrard Hall. Prof.
E. ('. Branson was elected president of the Club
and Mr. Frank P. Graham secretary. A large and in-
terested crowd of students and members of the faculty
was present at this meeting.
The North Carolina Club is the central body of the
various county clubs of the University. It is the
forum for various definite discussions and fact
gatherings as to North Carolina's economic and so-
cial resources and needs. It is a pioneer club among
American universities, working in a field of intense
human interest, fingering the mud-sill facts of the
life of the people of the State.
Prof. Branson's idea of "Know Yfour Own Home
County" is spreading rapidly until soon it will have
permeated through the entire student body of the
University out into every corner and section of the
The steering committee of the club consists of Dr.
J. G. de Roulhac Hamilton, professor of history;
George Eutsler, Greensboro; J. A. Capps, Bessemer

THE SCHOOL OF PHARMACY ESTABLISHES A SER-
The University has added another public service
feature of distinct merit. This is the establishment
of a bureau of employment for the benefit of drug
store proprietors and pharmacists throughout the
State. This bureau is under the direction of the
School of Pharmacy and is in charge of Mr. .1. G-.
Beard, assistant professor of pharmacy.
This movement on the part of the University was
heartily endorsed by the North Carolina Pharmaceu-
tical Association at its hist convention. Anyone de-
siring the services of this bureau should address the
Bureau of Employment, School of Pharmacy. Chapel

Professor M. H. Stacy, in charge of the depart-
ment of Applied Mathematics and Acting Dean of
the College of Liberal Arts of the University in
1913-14, has been chosen to succeed himself perma-
nently as I lean.
While this office has constantly grown in im-
portance throughout the years, its responsibilities
have been greatly added to for the present year by

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
Hamilton, J. G. de Rouliiac — "Reconstruction in
North Carolina." Pp. 683. Longmans, Green &
This volume is published as one of the series of
the Columbia University Studies in History, Econo-
mics and Public Law. The work was begun more
than ten years ago and six chapters were published
as the author's doctoral dissertation in Columbia Uni-
versity. Since then one chapter has appeared in the
Sewanee Review, and one and part of another in the
South Atlantic Quarterly. Other chapters have since
been added so that the completed work covers the en-
tire period of Reconstruction to its close in 1876.
The work was undertaken and carried to comple-
tion in the face of obstacles that at times seemed un-
surmountable, and is a monument to the author's
energy, determination and enthusiasm. The result
of his labors more than justifies his efforts. It is a
work considered both from an historical and literary
point of view that fixes the author's place among the
ablest of the younger generation, of American histo-
The difficulties were great; indeed, I know of no
other subject or period in North Carolina history com-
parable to it in difficulties, snares and discourage-
ments. It was a virgin field in which no other his-
torian had even blazed a trail. The material neces-
sary for the investigation was composed largely of
manuscript sources, numbered by the thousands, un-
assorted, unclassified and widely scattered. These
had to be carefully studied, annotated and digested.
The period under investigation was one which had
given rise to the bitterest prejudices and passions in
our history. Many of the actors are still living. The
results of their conduct are yet keenly felt in the
daily affairs of the State and her people. The actors
and their actions have not yet passed so far into his-
tory that they can be viewed with the calm, impar-
tial attitude which is the historical ideal. Pitfalls,
frecpiently concealed, beset the investigator on every
side. To say that Dr. Hamilton has plowed his
way faithfully through this mass of unorganized ma-
terial, that he has steered remarkably clear of the
snares that beset his pathway, that he has recorded
the truth without bias, and that he has written his
story interestingly in a style that is clear, simple,
direct, and remarkably free from faults, is to say
only what justice demands and what every careful
and unprejudiced reader of his book will endorse.
This does not mean that every reader will concur
in all of the author's conclusions. It does mean that
every impartial reader will give his conclusions and
judgments the very great weight to which a tho-
rough knowledge of his subject and an evidently ear-
nest search for truth entitle them. Among the most
important and interesting of his conclusions are the
following: the "crime of Reconstruction" has caus-
ed many Southerners to fail to comprehend the bene-
fits that have come from emancipation; it has kept
the sections of our country apart when, with the bar-
rier of slavery removed, they should have come to-
gether; and but for it thousands of the "old line Un-
ion Whigs" in North Carolina would have joined the
Republican party in 1865 and thus have prevented
the evolution of the "Solid South." Two legacies of
Reconstruction are first, a Constitution "never suit-
ed to the needs of the State and, in spite of amend-
ments, less so as the years go by;" and secondly, "a
strong dislike of all Northern interference in South-
ern affairs which has produced a States' Rights sen-
timent that is scarcely less intense than that invoked
in the defense of slavery."
On the whole the work is a fair, candid and im-
partial treatment of a subject that heretofore has al-
ways been discussed with bitterness, passion and pre-
judice; and if the author's judgment happens to fall
on the side that the best thought of the whole Nation
has already condemned, it is not because he held a
brief against that side but because the facts upon

tion," published by Scribner in 1912, deals with the
problems of class instruction in the various high
school branches and with certain technical phases of
administration closely related to these problems. The
third volume, now under way, promises "to deal
strictly and sympathetically with the clearly distinct
problems of high school supervision (especially of
class teaching.") The present volume deals with
the social and democratic relations of the high school
and the specific adjustments which it is called upon
to make in the light of the newer democratic con-
ception of education. There are thirty chapters by
twenty-seven different specialists, an appendix by the
editor, and a most excellent bibliography of high
school literature of sixty-eight pages. Dr. Johnston
himself contributes the following chapters, "The So-
cial Administration of the High School," "The Im-
provement of High School Teachers in the Service
as an Important Factor in the Social Administration
of the High School," and the appendix — "the Up-
ward Extension of the High School." These chapters
are especially strong, as are those by such well known
writers as Dr. David Sneddon, Dr. C. A. Perry,
Dr. C. O. Davis, Dr. W. C. Ruediger, and Dr. J. F.
What the authors have tried to do is briefly set
forth by the general editor. "This volume represents
an attempt to make it easier to think naturally of
the high school as the Temple <if our Democracy,
with its halls an ail museum (Chapter XXVIII);
its debating teams and supporting audiences real
though miniature forums (Chapter XIX): its play-
around and athletic fields ethical a- well a- hygienic
laboratories t < 'hapters XVI I and X XVII) ; its class
room meetings where co-operative investigations, live
discussions, and the application of knowledge to liv-
ing are carried on as a matter of course (Chapters
VIII. IX, and XI); and its student organizations
the wholesome expression of the best organized stu-
dent sentiment (Chapters XVI, XVTI, and XV 111).
That this is not a dream the reader has but to studv
with his normal imagination alert, the suggestions
and doctrines which are contained in the following
The book presents perhaps the strongest and ablest
exposition of the newer movements and tendencies
in the field of secondary education yet presented
within the compass of a single volume. It is true
that some of the positions taken by the different col-
laborators have not vet been sufficiently demonstrated
in practice to warrant their acceptance generally by
school boards and the public, yet the position taken
by each writer is accepted with practical unanimity
by the best thinkers and writers on educational sub-
jects of today. Here is, indeed, a strong, ably writ-
ten, scholarly book that takes its place at once as one
of the standard works on the American secondary
school. N. W. W. '
THE SUMMER SCHOOL CHORUS DRAWS MANY VISI-
"It was the pleasure of the writer to spend Mon-
day night of lasl week at the University of North
Carolina. Many notable improvements have been
made since our last visit several years ago. One
cannot walk through the vast campus, with its
noble oaks, its splendid buildings and classic atmos-
phere 1 , charged with achievement for the State run-
ning well over a hundred years, and not be thrilled
with pride and gratitude for what this great in-
stitution has done for North Carolina. The Sum-
mer School, which has l>eon notably successful this
year, was drawing to a close. Five hundred teach-
ers from the various sections of the State were pre-
sent, and must have returned to their homes with
higher purpose and inspiration. One of the most
practical and useful features of the Summer School
is the school of music under the direction of Prof.
Gustav Hagedorn, of Meredith College, who teaches
what he call- "public school music," somewhat after
the fashion id' the old time singing school teacher
now unhappily vanished. Tn addition. Prof. Hage-
dorn, who is a master in organizing choruses, assem-
bles from •"><> to 60 voices and toward the (dose of
fhej session gives high class copcerts. ,Wo fwcre
drawn to Chapel Hill by the concert of Monday
duly 20, and wo have rarely been so completely
charmed and uplifted. — Archibald Johnson, in Cli«ri-

INTERCOLLEGIATE LECTURES ARRANGED
The lecture committee id' the University announces
a new series of lectures for the presenl year to be giv-
en by the Universities of Virginia, North Carolina,
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
South Carolina, and Vanderbilt University. The
purposes of the lectures are to promote scholarship ;
to present, in concrete form, recent advances in some
special branch of learning; and to bring the institu-
tions concerned into closer relationship, through ex-
change of ideas in regard to all vital problems affect-
ing a modern university.
The plan of exchange contemplated will be some-
what like that of a triangular debate, except that
each university will send out only one lecturer each
year instead of two, and will exchange with a differ-
ent institution annually.
This year, the first of the series. South Carolina
will send a, lecturer to Vanderbilt, Vanderbilt will
send one to Virginia, Virginia one to North Carolina,
and North Carolina one to South Carolina. The
period of the course will be one week. Dr. F. P.
Venable has been chosen as the lecturer from the
University to South Carolina, and Professor William
M. Thorton, Dean of the School of Ena'ineeri^2■ of
Virginia, will lecture in Chapel Hill. The date of
the periods will be announced later.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE SCHOOL OF PHARMACY PILES UP A BIG EN-
Fifty-three men have registered for the Pharmacy
course to date. This is an increase of nine over last
Another evidence of the growth of the department
is the fact that a third year has been added to the
course, thus enabling the department to grant the
degree of doctor of pharmacy. Four men are candi-
dates for this degree this year: J. G. Beard, of
Chapel Hill; R. H. Andrews, of Chapel Hill; S. B.
Higgins, of Leicester ; and T. J. Andrews, of Dur-
This course consists for the most part of advanced
work in chemistry and in manufacturing pharmacy
and is intended to prepare students for positions as
pharmacognocists, food and drug inspectors, manu-
facturing pharmacists, chemists and teachers. The
University is one of three institutions in the South
to grant a degree of this rank.
CAUGHT IN EUROPE
The return of Dr. O. P. Rhyne, of the depart-
ment of German, who spent the summer in Germany,
marked the arrival of the last of the members of the
faculty who were caught abroad by the war during
August. Dr. Rhyne was at Munich when the war
broke out and found it impossible to return until the
work of the University was under way. Dr. Kent
J. Brown, also of the German department, and Dr.
Oliver Towles, professor of Romance languages, were
also delayed for several days, lint not sufficiently long
to interfere with their taking up their work at the
beginning of the term.
A FALL DEBATE IS TO BE ARRANGED
The Debating Council of the University voted
unanimously at a recent meeting to have an inter-
collegiate debate this fall, provided suitable arrange-
ments could be effected with some rival university.
The secretary, Mr. J. F. Hackler, was instructed
to correspond with the debating councils of Vander-
bilt, Georgia, ami .Maryland universities in refer-
ence to the matter. Definite arrangements have not
yet been perfected. This tentative debate is in addi-
tion to the triangular debate with Virginia and Johns
Hopkins, which will be held next spring, as usual.
