THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Volume III 



OCTOBER, 1914 



Number 1 



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- 
dented achievement. 

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 year. 

ODD 

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 

64964 



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 
suggestions: 

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 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



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 
in it." 

DDD 

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- 
lowing year. 

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 
University.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
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 
ii came forth touched with tin- eloquence of the gen- 
uine-hearted dean. 

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 
and opportunity. 

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 
mater. 

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 
committee. 

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. 

STUDENT BODY 

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. 

THE FACULTY 

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 




The Law Building, Formerly the Library 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



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 
State. 

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. 

CONCLUSION 

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- 
versity progress. 

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- 
cation. 

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 
Carolina. 



STUDENT ADVISORS 

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 

made permanent.

ATHLETICS 



Carolina Shows the Results of Summer Camp Practice and Good Coaching 



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. 

The summer camp has given the squad a good two 
weeks' start. 



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 COACHES 

The coaching staff is made up of Head Coach 
Trenchard, Arthur Bluethenthal and Logan Cun- 
ningham. Trenchard will have charge of the ends, 



ATHLETIC JOTTINGS 

Tom Wilson is head line coach at the University of 
Wisconsin. Tol Pendleton is awaiting the end of the 
Mexican trouble to take an important business po- 
sition in Mexico. 

While "Shag" Thompson was back on the Hill reg- 
istering for his senior course in the University, his 
clulmiates, such as the $100,000 infield and some- 
times Bender and Plank, were coining his world se- 
ries rakeotf. Thompson has been Mack's understudy, 
watchful anil waiting, on the bench. Once or twice 
he broke into print by his hitting and fielding. 

Duncan, ex-' 11, is one of the star outfielders in the 
Federal Circuit. He is rightfielder on the strong 
Baltimore team.

CAROLINA 41, RICHMOND COLLEGE 

( 'arolina opened the football season on the home 
field Saturday, September 26th, by smothering Rich- 
mond College with the heavy score of 41 to 0. The 
summer training bore early fruit in the team's aggres- 
sive offense. Bridges, the freshman quarterback, 
showed promising qualities of generalship and threw 
the forward pass with bullet accuracy. Tandy at 
center played up and down the line with nimble effec- 
tiveness. Fuller showed seasoned form in the back- 
field. Carolina used twenty-seven men.

THE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL CONTEST WILL BE 
CONTINUED 

The State championship contest in high school foot- 
ball which was successfully inaugurated last year at 
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 
games. 

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 
be awarded. 

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 
played. 

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- 
chard, E. R. Rankin and C. E. Ervin. The expenses 
of carrying on the contest will be raised by the sale 
of tickets for the championship game. 



COME TO THE PALMETTO-PINE TUG 

October the twelfth will be full of interest both to 
the students and the alumni. In the morning will 
be celebrated the one hundred and twentieth anniver- 
sary of the founding of the University. Dr. Philander 
P. Claxton, United States Commissioner of Educa- 
tion, will deliver the principal address. In the after- 
noon South ( 'arolina and North Carolina will have a 
Palmetto-Pine tug on the football field. This annual 
game is always interesting and was placed on Uni- 
versity Day for the sake of the student body and the 
alumni who might come in for the holiday and its 
celebration.

speed. In spite of all the stories of gloom which 
emanated from Charlottesville, Virginia has recouped 
herself wonderfully. The two Ehodes scholars, in- 
cluding ex-Captain Gooch, did not go to Oxford but 
have returned to their places on the Virginia team. 

It was a pretty game in Richmond last year. It 
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- 
an's steel for the strain of Georgia, Vanderbilt, and 
Virginia. Carolina looks through the schedule breast 
forward with confident hope. 

Attention Alumni ! For the game nearest at hand 
with South Carolina, come over to the sidelines and 
help us — October 12. 



CAROLINA MEETS WAKE FOREST IN DURHAM 

( arolina and Wake Forest will play a football 
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 
car system, and the crowd present at the game will 
probably be a record one for a mid-season game in 
North Carolina. 



Among the alumni back on the Hill for the Caro- 
lina-Richmond College game were John N". Wilson 
and President J. I. Foust, of Greensboro ; J. H. Bou- 
shall, Francis Cox, Dr. W. P. Jaeocks, W. H. Pace, 
Chas. Johnson, Jr., G. P>. Phillips, Wm. Boylan, 
Judge -I. S. Manning, George Thomas Sam Farabce, 
of Raleigh: Dr. Foy Roberson, G. M. Graham, A. H. 
Wolfe, Dr. John Carr, J. L. Morehead, J. S. Man- 
ning, Jr., of Durham; J. C. Lauier, of Greenville; 
T. IT. May, of Wendell; A. H. Graham, of Hillsboro; 
J. J. Henderson, of Mebane ; Connor Allen, of Golds- 
boro; F. L. Foust, of Pleasant Garden. 




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 
unanimously requested. 

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 
future. 

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 
State. 

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 
copies. 



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- 
der way. 

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

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



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- 
ers through the School of Education. 

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 
the School of Education carries on in behalf of teach- 
ers. 



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- 
eration. 

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

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 
in April. 



TWENTY-TWO LAW STUDENTS RECEIVE THEIR 
LICENSE 

Twenty-two men from the University Law School 
were successful candidates for license to practice law 
before the State Supreme Court at its sitting in 
August. The list follows: 

Carlisle W. Biggins is a lawyer at Sparta, a part- 



ner of Hon. R. A. Doughton; Claude E. Teague is 
superintendent of the Ashboro public schools; B. F. 
Britain is practicing with his father in Ashboro, 
the firm name being Britain & Britain; Fitzroy D. 
Phillips has located at Laurinburg; Wilkins P. Hor- 
ton is a lawyer at Pittsboro; Albert D. Parker has 
located in Asheville; John H. Norwood has located 
at Norwood; Miss Julia McGhee Alexander is prac- 
ticing in Charlotte; Henry A. Tolson is a lawyer in 
Goldsboro; S. M. Gattis, Jr., is practicing with his 
father, Solicitor S. M. Gattis, at Hillsboro; Geo. 
V. Strong is teaching in the Wilmington high school ; 
Hoyt Robersou is an attorney at Polloksville ; Byron 
Vance Henry is back in the University taking further 
law and graduate work; James McB. Williams has 
located in Charlotte ; Wm. T. Brothers at last reports 
had not decided on his location ; Kenneth McK. Far- 
rior is an attorney at Newbern ; Jas. DeLeon M. Hill

lotte; A. G. Robersou is practicing in Charlotte; A. 
I). Folger has located at Mt. Airy; T. C. Guthrie, 
Jr., has located in Charlotte; Tom Oilman is at 
Jacksonville. 

The registration in the law school has reached 79 
to date. This is a considerable increase over the regis- 
tration this time last year. Of this number several 
will receive the degree of LL. B. next commencement. 



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 
Ridge. 

Of particular interest is the fact that Thaddeus 
I']. Wilkerson, of Roxboro, won first honors in the 
examination, ami Paul A. Petree, of Germantown,

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 Richmond. 



FACULTY COMMITTEE 

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. 
Bain. 

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 
others. 

I congratulate you on the success you have made 
of The Review. It is very interesting and is do- 
ing a great deal of good. 

With best wishes, I am 

Respectf ully yours,

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 
State. 

The steering committee of the club consists of Dr. 
J. G. de Roulhac Hamilton, professor of history; 
George Eutsler, Greensboro; J. A. Capps, Bessemer 
City; L. Bruce Gunter, Wake County; Francis Brad- 
shaw, Ilillsboro. The promotion and publicity com- 
mittee consists of W. P. Fuller, Florida; S. P. Wint- 
ers, Granville County; Fred P. Voder. Catawba 
County; EQugb Hester, Granville County. 

Thirteen of the county clubs of the University 
have already organized for this year's work : Beaufort, 
Buncombe, Burke. Catawba, Cleveland, Gaston, 
Granville, Iredell, Johnston, Pender, Rowan, Samp- 
son, Wayne. Other county (dubs will organize with- 
in the next few days. 



THE SCHOOL OF PHARMACY ESTABLISHES A SER- 
VICE BUREAU 

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 
Hill, and enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope 
for reply. No fee is charged for any service rendered 
bv the bureau. 



SUMMER ACTIVITIES OF THE FACULTY 

During the past summer members of the Univer- 
sity faculty, as in previous years, were occupied in 
study, research, and educational work at the Flill and 
at various other places. 

Professors Walker, Chase, L. R. Wilson, L. A. 
Williams, Howe, Bain, Bernard, Stacy, T. J. Wil- 
son, dr., Chrisler, Bell, Cobb, Coker, Patterson, 
Booker, Smith, Toy, Noble, and Pratt were mem- 
bers of the faculty of the University Summer School. 

Prof. E. C. Branson taught in the University 
Summer School and in Peabody College for Teach- 
ers, at Nashville, Tenn. 

Professors McGehee and Mcintosh and Mr. R. G. 
Stockton, of Winston-Salem, taught in the University 
Summer Law School.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 
Hamilton, J. G. de Rouliiac — "Reconstruction in 

North Carolina." Pp. 683. Longmans, Green & 

Co., 1914. 

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- 
rians. 

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

which his judgment is based admit of no other con-

Johnston, Chakles H.j and Others. — "The Modern 
High School: Its Administration and Exten- 
sion." Pp. XVIII-847. Scribner, 1014. $1.50. 

This volume is the second of a series of three pro- 
jected by Dr. Johnston treating rather comprehen- 
sively the major divisions of the field of secondary 
education. The first volume, "High School Educa- 
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. 
Hosic. 

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 
chapters." 

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- 
TORS 

"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

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, 



18 



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 SCHOOL OF PHARMACY PILES UP A BIG EN- 
ROLLMENT 

Fifty-three men have registered for the Pharmacy 
course to date. This is an increase of nine over last 
year's enrollment. 

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- 
ham. 

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. 



DR. ROYSTER LEAVES FOR TEXAS 

After seven year- of a splendid service in the 
University, Dr. J. F. Royster, formerly head of 
the department of English in the University, left on 
September 15th for the University of Texas where 



he becomes professor of the English language and 
literature. Dr. RoysteFs successor as the head of 
the department of English is Dr. E. A. Greenlaw, 
a member of the department last year and for a 
number of years professor of English in Adelphi 
College, Brooklyn, 1ST. Y. 



THE COUNCIL ORGANIZES 

The University Council, as organized this year, 
consists of George W. Eutsler, president; McDaniel 
Lewis, secretary; E. L. Mackie, representative of the 
sophomore class; B. C. Trotter, representative from 
the law school ; G. C. Singletary, representative from 
the medical class; Roger McDuffie, representative 
from the pharmacy school; A. R. JSTewsome, repre- 
sentative from the student body; and W. P. Fuller, 
the member elected by the council. 



MARS HILL SENDS BIG DELEGATION 

.Mars Hill College, one of the most widely known 
and largely attended preparatory schools in western 
North Carolina, this year has sent thirteen freshmen 
to the University. Among this number are some of 
the best ecpiipped men in the first year class. In- 
cluding upper-classmen, the total Mars Hill delega- 
tion in the University now numbers twenty, or more. 



THE SATYRS INITIATE 

John Calhoun Busby, '13, now of the Harvard Law 
School, was recently initiated .into the dramatic 
order of the Satyrs. He was business manager of 
the dramatic club in his senior year and a member 
of the famous cast which presented "What Hap- 
pened to Jones." 



DR. LAWSON REMAINS 

The Review finds pleasure in being able to correct 
a statement made by it in the June number announc- 
ing the going of Dr. R. B. Lawson to State College, 
Pennsylvania. Dr. Lawson will continue his work 
for the University. 



PRESIDENT GRAHAM RECEIVES HONORARY DEGREE 
At the recent commencement of the University of 
the South the degree of Doctor of Civil Law was con- 
ferred upon President Graham. 



On September 18th the Odd Number chapti-: of 
Sigma Upsilon, the national literary fraternity, ini- 
tialed as an honorary member Dr. Edwin Grer-nlaw 
of the English department and as regular members
