THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
WIDENING Attention is herewith directed to Pres-
INTERESTS ident Graham's report given in the ac-
count of the celebration of Universi-
ty Day, and also to the articles contained in this
issue dealing with new publications, extension lec-
tures, correspondence courses, aud county club acti-
A careful reading of these, The Review believes,
will lead inevitably to the conclusion that the Univer-
sity is broadening its interests and at the same time
is basing its work upon sound foundations.
Possibly the two most important steps now being
taken by the University are those of offering regular
courses leading to a degree to students not in resi-
dence and the publishing of a syllabus for home stu-
dies which will sooner or later illumine the whole
subject of North Carolina economic and social life.
Another step which The Review believes will
also be of great significance is that of placing in the
hands of a large number of North Carolinians a
weekly news letter from the University which will
give an account of its serious work and will render
direct service to the people.
Still another fact, not stated, it is true, in a special
article, but unmistakably evidenced in the numerous
greetings from the alumni and reports from alumni
meetings on University Day, is that the alumni are
eager to have a part in all that the University is un-
dertaking. Letters, telegrams, the organization of
new associations, movements begun by individuals
and associations to aid in carrying out the plans of
the University — all point to the day of the Greater
University rendering to the State a constantly en-
larging, splendid service.
THE From time immemorial the Dialectic
SOCIETIES an d Philanthropic Societies have re-
ceived at Commencement and upon all
cither public occasions, Invji and most deserved praise.
This has come from alumni and the University alike,
as both have profited tremendously by the influence
which these organizations have always exerted.
In the leading article of the University Magazine
for November entitled "The Societies — Overgrown
or Outgrown," W. P. Fuller, Senior, president of
the Y. M. C. A., member of the editorial boards of
the Tar Heel and Magazine, member of the Varsity
football squad, as well as active member of the Phil-
anthropic Society, subjects the work of the Societies
to a rigid historical review and keen analysis, the
findings of which he gives expression to in the fol-
lowing opening paragraph :
The Di and Phi Literary Societies as present or-
ganized are worn out, outgrown institutions — with a
grand past of achievement and glory, it is true, —
but nevertheless obsolete. They must be reorganized.
Never before in history has Carolina suffered such a
defeat on the platform as last year. It was either
the men or the system. Many think is was the latter.
While Mr. Fuller's conclusions are open to ques-
tion, his knowledge of the history of the Societies is
extensive, and his observations are exceedingly sug-
gestive. Originally, he finds, the Societies filled
the whole life of the student not otherwise occupied
by strictly University duties. Dormitory life and
rural isolation fostered Society activities. But in re-
cent years — years in which, by the way, Carolina has
been most successful in debate, baring last year —
a constantly increasing number of interests or or-
ganizations have entered into competition with the
Societies. In the nineties athletics, the Tar Heel
and the Yackety Yack withdrew support. More re-
cently the Odd Number Club and the Satyrs have
appealed to men of literary and dramatic talent, while
Amphotoretben has drawn away the interest of men
who wish to discuss informally the vital questions of
the day. With these have also come the lyceum lec-
ture courses, the moving pictures, and the splendid
auto road leading out to the varied attractions of
Durham and the world beyond. Quite naturally the
Societies have been robbed of the support of many
strong men, and what is even more serious, they have
been left but one lone activity— debating — to offer
to an overgrown, disinterested, heterogeneous mem-
bership. The result growing out of such a situation
is so obvious, it scarcely needs stating: the Societies
have a name to live, but are dead; their energy is
spent in operating their machinery and maintaining
their traditions; as effective institutions they are ob-
solete. So finds Mr. Fuller.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
To remedy this, Mr. Fuller proposes a very defi-
nite plan. It is so suggestive and so strongly put,
that it is given in full. It challenges not only the
attention of the campus, hut the sober thought of all
the alumni who would have the Societies to remain
what for many years they have unquestionably been
— -the most vital single influence in University life.
In my opinion the Societies should do three things.
They should have a limited membership with a hun-
dred as the outside limit ; initiation should be in the
late fall or spring after the new men have had time
to choose their college life work ; resignation from the
society should be made easy. There are two other
things that might be advisable. In the first place,
abolishing the custom concerning Eastern boys join-
ing one and Western boys the other might enliven in-
terest of competition. Second, the value of secrecy
is open to question.
For a man who loves the Societies, to consider such
a move is painful. The idea of giving up the old
traditions and customs and the recognition of the
organizations as eclipsed in importance is painful.
But restoration of the Societies as they were is impos-
sible. The trouble is organic. What is needed is the
surgeon's knife of the reformer, not the physician's
pills of the orator. Invoking the ancient Gods of
Tradition cannot put life into a dead body. The
Societies must face the fact that this institution is
now really a University, not a college, and that there
are a hundred pregnant counter currents of taste,
desire, ambition, training and necessity. Let them
concentrate on their one duty. Let them specialize.
Strip off the dead wood of tradition and get down to
a fighting basis. As it is they are consuming ninety-
nine per cent of their energy in revolving the machin-
ery of operation, and the one in useful work.
The Review reprints here in its en-
tirety and as representative of pre-
vailing campus sentiment the leading
editorial of the Tar Heel of Thursday, October 22nd.
The college is getting behind the team as has not
been done during the last few years. This is mani-
fest not entirely in the spirited attendance at mass
meetings and practice but in the general tune of
campus talk. There is a gratifying healthy senti-
ment concerning the gridiron defenders.
We are happy to believe that this "behind-the-
team" spirit is largely because the entire college
knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that the team
characterized by Coach Trenchard as "the best in
the South" is an absolutely home product. This is
the result of the firm, far-sighted policy of the col-
lege authorities. Last year in the throes of evolu-
tion to the present system there were many who be-
came confused as to the only way to ultimate consis-
tent athletics. A few guiding spirits in the faculty
disregarded the immediate consequences and looked
to the future. Today we reap the result of their
The college knows that the great attendance of
material on the field which makes the selection of the
"so-called first team embarrassing" is due to the con-
structive, energetic development of high school teams,
class teams, and the varsity squad. The result is due
to Head Coach Doggie Trenchard.
Three cheers and a "Split-Carolina" for the Fac-
ulty-Coaching team work.
AT WORK Sons of Carolina, together with thous-
AGAIN alK l s f North Carolinians not alumni
of the University, will read with genu-
ine joy the following paragraphs taken from the
Virginia Alumni News of October 28 telling of the
restored health of Dr. E. A. Alderman and his re-
turn to work again as the President of the University
President Alderman returned to the University
the night of October 18, after a long absence in suc-
cessful search of health. His reception by the stu-
dents on the night of his arrival "back home" was the
most spectacular event seen at the University in a
generation. Nine hundred young men, each with a
naming torch, headed by a band, met the train and
escorted him to his home on Carr's Hill. There they
dashed up the slopes of the lawn and massed about
the portico. D. Hiden Ramsey, representing the
students, welcomed the President. Dr. Alderman's
response was marked by a depth of feeling, tender-
ness and happiness that made his few remarks strong-
ly appeal to the minds and hearts of the students.
He was cheered again and again, and after singing
"The Good Old Song" in final assurance that the
President was heartily welcomed home, the students
went hurrahing away.
Among a basketful of messages sent by special de-
livery carrier, telegraph or cable, welcoming Presi-
dent Alderman back to Virginia and felicitating him
on the fact that he has returned in better health than
ever, was this telegram from President Woodrow
"I learn with deep pleasure and real gratitude of
your return to your duties. May the long waiting
be rewarded by long years of unhampered labor."
At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the
Trustees in Raleigh on the 26th of October it was
decided that the formal inauguration of President
Graham should be held at some date in April.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
The University, with Alumni and Friends from Far and Near, Fittingly Observes Its
One Hundred and Twenty-first Anniversary
The one hundred and twenty-first birthday of the
University, made memorable by the spirit of demo-
cracy and freedom of educational apportunity as
expressed by President Graham and Dr. Philander
P. Claxton, the special guest of the occasion, was
fittingly celebrated in Chapel Hill on Monday morn-
ing, October 12, while from friends and alumni far
and near come messages of congratulations and best
wishes for Alma Mater.
Of the many features of the day, the formal exer-
cises of which were begun in Memorial Hall at 11 :00
o'clock, the most notable were the report by Presi-
dent Graham, the address on the democratizing of
higher education by Dr. Claxton, and the offer of
hearty co-operation of the alumni, as expressed in
birthday greetings, in carrying out the plans of the
University to make itself of increasing service to
every person and community iu the State. The grid-
iron battle with South Carolina in the afternoon,
while not a part of the celebration, provided an ex-
ceedingly interesting additional event, not to men-
tion the satisfaction derived from the score of 48 to
in favor of Carolina.
PRESIDENT GBAHAM's REPORT
President Graham, after the invocation by Rev.
Walter Patten and the singing of the University
Hymn, presented the following review of the growth
of the University:
In presenting a brief review of the past year I
shall content myself with recording some of the out-
standing facts without comment or discussion.
Three new professorships have been added: one
in chemistry, one in applied economics aud sociology,
and one in rural education.
An important change has been made in the curri-
culum to take effect next year, designed to make the
choice of electives in the regular courses more defi-
nite in aim.
A third year has been added to the two years hith-
erto required for the degree in pharmacy.
A system of faculty advisers has been inaugurated
by which freshmen in small groups are brought into
closer personal contact with the members of the facul-
A system of exchange professorships has been es-
tablished with three other Southern Universities.
Credit, with proper restrictions, towards a degree,
has been allowed for work done in the summer school
and in the correspondence courses.
This last step is to assist the large and rapidly
growing number of ambitious men and women whose
desire for University work is quite as keen, and
whose scholarly intent is quite as worthy, as that of
those whose fortune enables them to pursue a degree
in uninterrupted residence.
Because we believe that extension of University
scholarship through these and other means carries no
peril to scholarship, and should be provided for ade-
quately, we have gladly provided for it with all the
means at our command.
The summer school registered 600 students during
the past summer and has steadily grown in efficiency
through the unremitting work of Director N. W.
The correspondence courses, the high school de-
bating union, the lecture bureau, and the other divi-
sions of the extension department have met with a
success far beyond our hopes.
The more complete organization necessitated by
this success, and by larger plans for the present year,
has been effected. An assistant director has been ap-
pointed to have charge of the office and to aid Dr.
L. R. Wilson, to whose energy and wisdom the devel-
opment of the department is largely due. The most
significant addition is the work in extension that will
be done by the professor of applied economics.
All of the work of the extension division has been
made possible by the voluntary and enthusiastic ser-
vice of the members of the regular faculty, supple-
mented by the generous co-operation of the students
and alumni. The last bulletin, issued in an edition
of 5,000 copies, was written by a student and paid
for by an alumnus.
In physical equipment the notable additions have
been the new dining hall, which was opened for the.
summer school and which now takes care of 457 stu-
dents; the new filter plant; and the putting of the
power plant on a 24-hour schedule.
CAPT. EMERSOn's GIFT
The most important gift was that of Capt. Isaac
E. Emercon, of the class of 1879, of a new athletic
field to be built during the present year.
Registration in all departments shows a remark-
able increase. The total number for the present ses-
sion is 975 ; for the corresponding time last year it
was 871. In the past five years the number of stu-
dents taught at the University, including the summer
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
school, has grown from 886 in 1910-11, to 1,569 in
We have no confusion of mind as to real greatness
and mere size, nor as to the genuine greatness of the
task that the rapidly expanding life of the State is
calling upon us to perform. We have a deep and
solemn faith that we shall interpret it in the alto-
gether adequate terms of truth and life demanded
of the University of a great modern State.
DR. CLAXTON's ADDRESS
The address of Dr. Claxton centered around a
nation-wide plan of education which would give
equality of opportunity to every child to secure an
education. He said in part:
I want to take a retrospect of the last twenty-one
years in education and I want to do that for a defi-
More progress has been made in the last thirteen
years in educational lines in the United States than
in all the years before. When Americans, who arc
noted for looking to the main chance, have so tre-
mendously increased the money invested in educa-
tion it is a sign that they believe the present and t'.e
future justify this policy.
Dr. Claxton then gave an array of figures showing
growth along various educational lines. In 1890,
$150,000,000 was spent for educational purposes.
The amount increased to $550,000,000 in 1914. In
1890 there were 4,500 high schools in the United
States with 225,000 pupils; in 1914 there are
14,000 with 1,500,000 pupils. And the increase
has been in efficiency as well as in numbers.
There were 621 colleges in 1900; in 1913 there
were only 596. Dr. Claxton declared this decrease
indicates a great degree of progress in education. A
property valuation of $152,000,000 in 1900 has in-
creased to $349,000,000 in 1914; 8,000,000 books
in the libraries have grown to 17,000,000. The in-
come of all colleges thirteen years ago was $24,000,-
000, while today it is $130,000,000. For the same
period the . number of students has increased from
123,000 to 250,000. The number of post-graduates
has practically doubled, from 6,544 to 12,084.
Speaking from personal knowledge, Dr. Claxton
said that twenty-one years ago there were many in
North Carolina who advocated no state aid to higher
schools of learning. Today one rarely hears such a
In concluding his address, Dr. Claxton called up-
on the University to support him in a plan which he,
as Commissioner of Education of the United States,
is at present advocating, a plan which reverts to the
"sir-year periods" of education.
This plan provides that the child should spend the
first six years in the home and that every influence
should be brought to bear to make the home contri-
bute helpfully to the child's education. The second
six years should be devoted to the elementary school
and the third to the high school. The last two years
of this third period should be spent in specialized
work leading to the industries if the pupil is to go
immediately into industrial work or leading to col-
lege if the pupil contemplates further educational
The last period should be spent in college. In or-
der to make college work effective many small colleges
should concentrate all their effort upon graduating
students in two years or upon preparing them for the
great universities. The universities on their part
should not attempt to teach freshman and sophomore
classes, but should devote themselves exclusively to
the advanced work for which they are fitted.
At the conclusion of the address, Dean C. L.
Raper of the graduate school, presented Dr. Claxton
for the degree of LL. D., after which Dean M. H.
Stacy read the list of Carolina alumni who had died
since the Twelfth of October, 1913. The audience
stood during the reading and while the quartette sang
"Integer Vitae." The benediction was pronounced
by Rev. Walter Patten.
GREETINGS FROM THE ALUMNI
Alumni and Friends Send Birthday Greetings to Alma Mater
No moment in the year brings greater happiness
— happiness of the fundamental, enduring sort —
than that on University Day in which Alma Mater
pauses to read the messages of love and good will
from the far scattered sons.
The following were received and read in Me-
morial Hall on the morning of the Twelfth :
Angleton, Texas, Oct. 1, 1914.

University of North Carolina that I know of, in
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Texas, and I think that it is not possible for ns to
get together for holding a meeting on the 10th or
12th as we are scattered so far apart, but be assured
that I will be with you in "spirit."
I am very busy in making my "Annual Report"
to the State Department of Education and other
duties pertaining to my office of County Superinten-
dent. My term of office will expire on December 8
next. I am a native of Chatham County North
Carolina, and graduated from the University in 1859,
so I think it is time to take a rest. I will be 75 years
of age on the 20th of this month. If I am living, I
expect to attend our next commencement at Chapel
Hill next year, and bring my wife with me, as she
has not attended a commencement since 1859, when
she came to see her sweetheart get his diploma. T
owe my success in life to the training I received at
the University, and will always regard my Alma
Mater with love and affection.

Washington, D. G, Oct. 12, 1914.
I am in receipt of your letter addressed to the
alumni of the University, dated 10th inst. While
not having the fortune to be a graduate of the Uni-
versity, yet 1 am glad to enroll my name among those
who are co-operating in your University Extension
wmk of the present time. As I have heretofore writ-
ten you, I think this Extension work undertaken by
the University under your direction, is the most far-
reaching and helpful of all the activities ever entered
into by the University. I have for some years enter-
tained rather emphatic views about the work of a
college. I am rather of the opinion that a college
which confines its activities merely to academic work
and does not in every practicable way endeavor to fit
its students for the active work of life, including
a work of co-operative service, fails of its most im-

Your tine circular of October 10th, with its strong
appeal to the Alumni of the University of North Car-
olina, has just reached me. It will give me great
pleasure to co-operate and assist in any way in my
power in the work.
As you know, we have an Alumni Association here
in New York which preserves the memories of the
past days at Chapel Hill and maintains the ties of
its members with the present day work of our noble

ate greetings on this glad day. My mind and heart
are with you. I only wish that I could share the spir-
it that must be dominant on the old campus today. I
LOOKING EAST FROM PINEY PROSPECT
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
rejoice in the unmistakable signs of progress and I
covet for you and the University every good gift.
State College, N. M., Oct. 7, 1914.
As the twelfth of October comes around each year
and the Alumni Committee sends out its big hearty
greeting I cannot forget that, as a son of the Univer-
sity, I belong to one of the noblest families on the
American continent. Seven years have passed since
I was back on the campus, and the West is now my
adopted country, but I am loyal to my Alma Mater.
Year after year I have watched with intense pride
the steady growth in numbers and the widening in-
fluence of the University, and to the great future of
usefulness that lies out before her we all look for-
ward with serene confidence.
Every step that the University makes forward is a
matter of personal gratification to me. My own per-
sonal debt to the institution is so large that I have a
very keen appreciation of the service it renders and
the noble ideals it fosters.

STRUGGLES ON THE GRIDIRON
The Varsity Gives Good Account of Itself in the Mid-Season Games
CAROLINA 65, VIRGINIA MEDICAL
The game with Virigina Medical College on Octo-
ber 3rd, which ended after Carolina had scored 65
and before the Meds had scored at all, was hardly
more than a scrimmage for Carolina. Here again
the results of summer training showed plainly. The
light, unpracticed team of the Meds could not resist
Carolina's assaults, and throughout the game was
hardly in possession of the ball. After the first
half the Carolina coaches began replacing the 'Varsi-
ty men with the scrubs, and before the end of the
game practically every man on the squad had been
tried out. Fuller, Parker, and Captain Tayloe were
the steadiest gainers for the University in the first
half. LTines, a half back on the scrubs, made four
runs of 20, 22, 40, and 45 yards in the second half.
On a long forward pass from Long, Burnett ran 30
yards for a touchdown in the third quarter. Many
forward passes were tried, but only a few proved
Hardin, right tackle, was the Meds'
CAROLINA 53, WAKE FOREST
The University defeated Wake Forest in Durham
on October 8th 53 to 0. Carolina began substituting
after the first six minutes of play, and after the first
quarter not a 'Varsity man was in the game. The
Tar Heels had no difficulty in holding the ball
throughout practically the entire game. Wake For-
est's was the first team this year to make first down
three times on Carolina.
NORTH CAROLINA 48, SOUTH CAROLINA
The Tar Lleels played their last game on home
ground with South Carolina on October 12th — Uni-
versity Day. Many of the alumni were on the Hill
to witness what everybody thought would be a hard
fought game. Expectations were, however, disap-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
pointed. South Carolina resisted strongly in the first
quarter, but throughout the remainder of the game
scoring was so easy for the Tar Heels that they suc-
ceeded in getting 48 points to their opponents 0.
South Carolina did not get first down throughout the
game, nor did she even get possession of the ball un-
til the end of the second quarter, losing it subse-
quently on downs. Captain Hill, who was one of
South Carolina's strongest players, suffered a frac-
tured knee, and had to be taken out of the game.
The whole Palmetto team was more or less battered,
and time out was repeatedly called for South Caro-
lina men. On the contrary, none of the North Caro-
linians was injured. Captain Tayloe made excel-
lent runs off tackle, and Fuller and Parker gained
consistently. The Tar Heels were frequently penal-
ized for being off side. Many of the scrubs were sub-
stituted and succeeded in scoring more points than
the 'Varsity had.
CAROLINA 41, GEORGIA 6
Carolina surprised natives of Atlanta on October
17 by defeating the University of Georgia 41 to 6.
An Atlanta paper says of the game : "Carolina steam
rolled over the University football eleven at Grant
field, piling up point after point, and showing an
attack that was bewildering and a defense that was
well nigh impregnable. Tandy opened up yawning
holes in the Georgia line for his backs to drive
through, and on the defensive ploughed through time
after time and nailed his man. No better back
has ever performed on a local field than this fellow
Tayloe. He can sidestep as well as Lewie Hardage
ever did. He is as fleet footed as Kirk Newell, he
can stiff arm like Owlesy, and can hammer the line
like the latter." The whole team played an excel-
lent and steady game ; Winston, Homewood, Parker,
Reid, Fuller, and Ramsay all fought with true Caro-
The continuous report of the game which was held
in Gerrard Hall was attended by five hundred stu-
dents. Each report was greeted with enthusiasm
seldom seen in Chapel Hill recently. Congratula-
tory telegrams were sent to the team and the coaches
after the game.
CAROLINA 10, VANDERBILT 9
The hardest fought game seen in Nashville lately
was played there on October 24 when Carolina de-
feated Vanderbilt 10 to 9. The game lasted three
hours, until it was so dark that the headlinesman
had to light a match to find the ball. Both teams
were badly battered, and time had to be called out
in the fourth quarter for both sides to rest. The first
half went badly for Carolina and ended with the
score 9 to 3 in favor of Vanderbilt. Things changed,
however, in the second half and the ball was kept
practically all the time in Vanderbilt's territory. In
the third quarter Ramsay saved the day by blocking
a kick of Chester's, and darting across the goal line
for a touchdown. Tandy kicked goal, making the
score 10 to 9 in favor of Carolina. Spectators say
that the game could not have been more exciting, and
the battered appearance of the team on its return
home attested to the severity of the game.
The result of the game was eagerly waited for
across the entire state. Bulletin boards in the lead-
ing cities carried the score by quarters, and when
the game ended long after the lights had been turned
on in North Carolina, Alumni and Carolina well-
wishers participated in a general rejoicing. A rec-
ord crowd attended the continuous report at the Hill.
CAROLINA 16, DAVIDSON 3
Carolina defeated Davidson in Winston-Salem,
October 31, in a hard fought battle by the score of
16 to 3. The Tar Heels outweighed the Presbyter-
ians several pounds to the man, but failed to gain
ground, as was expected on account of the battered
condition of the team and the absence from the game
of Homewood, Fuller, Parker, and Bridges.
Tayloe was Carolina's star. Burnett, on the re-
ceiving end of forward passes, gained ground for the
Chapel Hill eleven. Winston at left end played a
great game on the defense and scored Carolina's last
touchdown after taking a long forward pass from
Long. Both teams used the open game, but Carolina
gained more ground on forward passes than the
Davidson's lone score was the result of McKinnon's
field goal from Carolina's forty-yard line early in the
second quarter. The big fullback was Davidson's
most consistent ground gainer and his toe probably
saved many points for his team. Time after time
his long punts put the ball back in Carolina's terri-
tory and averted possible scores. Keesler at quarter-
back for Davidson played a great game and ran his
team well. His tackling was good and he gained
many yards around both ends.
The weather was too warm for fast football and
much time was taken out for the players who were
overcome with heat. About two hundred students
from each school were present and added much to the
game with their yells and songs.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
CAROLINA WINS NINTH VICTOI- Y
Carolina won her ninth successive victory for the
season when she defeated V. M. I. in Charlotte on
November 7, by the score of 30 to 7. Carolina was
reserve during the contest and did not make stren-
uous efforts to pile up a larger score. The features
were the line plunging of Reid and an 85 yard run
for a touchdown by Winston. Homewood and Fuller
were the only regular squad men who did not get in
the game. They were kept out on account of minor
The struggle will be of the kind that is
very worth seeing.
ON TO RICHMOND!
The annual Thanksgiving Day game between
Carolina and Virginia is scheduled for the afternoon
of the 26th in Richmond. The team will leave the
Hill on the afternoon of the 25th and the regular
Southern Excursion will run from Carrboro on Wed-
nesday night. Good service and the arrival of the
train in time for the game is guaranteed.
The price of admission to the game will be $1.00,
$1.50, and $2.00 and the ticket-sellers and collectors
will be students. Inquiries for tickets secured be-
fore the game should be directed to Graduate Mana-
ger C. T. Woollen or Manager Tom Boushall, at
The prospective attendance gives promise of being
the greatest in years. The record of Carolina and
Virginia against Georgia and Vanderbilt shows that
both teams have decided, and apparently about equal
Barring figures dealing with criminality there is
nothing on earth more tricky than football statistics.
Nevertheless there is considerable comfort before the
fact in the reflection that the figures are favorable.
Carolina 46, Georgia 6 ; Virgina 28, Georgia 0,
sounds all right. Much more to the purpose, how-
ever, is the Vanderbilt score. The extent of the rout
to which two strong teams put a w 7 eaker one amounts
to little; but a team that can stand up before Michi-
gan's great southern rival need have small fear of
being swept off its feet by anything in this section.
Carolina has a strong team this year. Only the
event can prove whether or not Virginia has a strong-
er one. But regardless of which side wins, lovers of
the sport may go to Richmond next month in the full
assurance that they will see a real football game. —

CAROLINA POSSESSES STRONG TEAM
Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching and with it
the big Carolina game. Much more interest is being
felt this year over the contest than has been aroused
in some time, owing to the remarkable showing that
Carolina has made already against some of the strong-
est teams in the South. She has said she is out for a
record and expects to break the long line of defeats

which Virginia has for so many years inflicted on her.
There is no doubt that the Tar Heels have gathered
together a splendid football machine, and they have
worked hard for it. Their highest ambition is to
beat Virginia and to do it Coach Trenchard, way
back in the summer months, instituted practice at
The strength of the team as a whole is excellent,
but the work of two men, Tayloe at left halfback and
Tandy at center, stands far above that of any other
men. Both are no doubt great players, and it was
said after the Georgia game that no better back than
Tayloe had ever been seen in Atlanta.
It is significant, too, that the team has scored to
date something over 260 points to their opponents'
one touch-down, that in the Georgia game last Sat-
urday. — Virginia Alumni News, October 28, 1914.
The basketball schedule for this season has been
practically completed, and a number of good games
have been arranged by Manager Mebane.
Two games will be played in Chapel Hill during
January, one with Elon and the other with William
and Mary. On January 16th there will be a game
with Wake Forest in Raleigh. During February
Carolina will play Wake Forest at Wake Forest,
Guilford at Raleigh, and Virginia at Raleigh.
The team's long trip will begin February 15 and
last five days. It will play each of the following
colleges in the order named : Roanoke College, Wash-
ington and Lee, V. M. I., Virginia, Staunton or Va.
Christian College, and the Lynchburg Y. M. C. A.
This is probably the first year that the Carolina
besketball management has been able to secure four
Saturday-night games in Raleigh. From these four
games it is hoped that enough will be realized to aid
materially in keeping the management from losing-
money on the whole season.

The freshmen football team lost to Warrenton
high school Saturday, October 14, by the narrow
margin of one point. Conger failed to kick goal.

SYLLABUS OF HOME-COUNTY CLUB STUDIES
A Syllabus of Home-County Club Studies, being
Extension Series Bulletin No. 9, has just been issued
by the University for the use of the members of the
North Carolina Club on the campus and those co-
operating with the Club throughout the State. It
has been prepared by Prof. E. C. Branson, presi-
dent of the Club, and has become the basis for the
work which the Club members are enthusiastically
entering upon — the careful study of North Caro-
line economic and social problems.
According to the plans outlined in the syllabus,
each county of the State will be made the subject of
an exhaustive, many-sided investigation. This, if
the table of contens may be followed as a guide, will
be along the following lines: I. Historical Back-
ground; II. Natural Resources; III. Population
Studies; IV. Country Populations; V. Wealth Stu-
dies; VI. Domestic Animals; VII. Live Stock Pro-
ducts; VIII. Production of Crop Wealth; IX. Or-
ganization and Co-operation; X. Rural Credits; XL
Markets ; XII. Public Roads ; XIII. School Studies ;
XIV. Public Health and Sanitation; XV. Church
and Sunday School Studies ; XVI. The Farm Home.
When these investigations have been followed to
their end and the facts discovered have been thor-
oughly sifted, a simple running narrative will be
brought out embodying them. This will be printed
in the local press of the county or in pamphlet form
and will acquaint the county with its standing in
these and other particulars. In every instance com-
parisons with what other counties and other states
are doing will be given.
Now that the syllabus has been issued the Club has
announced the following program for its informal
discussions for the remainder of the year.
November 4. The Decreasing Meat Supply of
North Carolina and the Increased Cost of Living.
Discussion led by J. M. Daniels.
December 2. The Club will take charge of the
Community Service week meetings in Chapel Hill.
December 16. Are Farm Lands Bearing an Un-
reasonable Share of the Tax Burden?

April 7. Wake County Club Findings.
April 21. Mecklenburg County Club Findings.
May 5. New Zealand's Graduated Land Tax.

and it is hoped that many alumni will co-operate with
the Club in making the complete studies. Copies
may be had by addressing the Bureau of Extension.
THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA NEWS LET-
TER BEGINS PUBLICATION
The University of North Carolina News Letter is
the latest publication projected by the University
and will appear for the first time about November
15. It is to be issued weekly by the Bureau of Ex-
tension and will reach a mailing list at the begin-
ning of from 3,000 to 5,000 North Carolinians.
The purpose of the publication is to carry in brief
form the findings of the newly organized North
Carolina Club, and such contributions from the
School of Education, the Debating Union and other
University Departments and organizations as may
seem advisable. In the case of the School of Edu-
cation and the Debating Union, the contributions will
take the form of letters on various modern educa-
tional topics and brief debate outlines for use by the
debating societies of the State fostered by the Union.
All articles will be short and in such form as can
be easily clipped and used by the weekly press of the
State. The publication will consist of a single page
the size of the Tar Heel, printed on one side only,
and will greatly supplement the present press service
of the University.
The editorial board which has charge of the publi-
cation is Prof. E. C. Branson, Dr. J. G. deR.
Hamilton, Prof. Z. V. Judd, Dr. L. R. Wilson, and
Mr. S. R. Winters.
CORRESPONDENCE COURSES LEAD TO A. B.
At the meeting of the faculty on October 28th,
the University took the final steps in providing
credit courses leading to the degree of A. B. which
may be taken by correspondence. Nineteen such cours-
es together with seventeen non-credit courses, are of-
fered for the present year, and mark what is hoped
to be the beginning of a large in absentia student
All courses for which credit is authorized are exact
equivalents of courses now offered in the University
in the regular term.
A registration fee of $2 is charged and special fees
of $5 and $3 for each credit or non-credit course
Plans have been perfected by which all the courses
will be taught by the members of the regular faculty.
Dr. L. A. Williams, Professor of School Adminis-
tration, is in charge of the work, and the central
office is at the headquarters of the Bureau of Exten-
sion in the Peabody Building. Part II of Exten-

The handbook prepared for the use of members
of the Union was sent to press on October 25th and
may be expected not later than November 15.
As in previous years, the handbook will give an
historical outline of the development of the subject,
an extensive brief of the query, a bibliography cov-
ering every phase of the discussion, and a number of
the best articles available on both the affirmative and
negative. In all, it will comprise 60 or 70 pages,
and will maintain the high standard of the previous
handbooks on Woman Suffrage and The Initiative

fact, the demand was so great, especially for com-
mencement addresses, that 128 invitations had to be
In order that provision might be made for the en-
largement of this work, the list of offerings by the
faculty has recently been revised and extended, and
has just been issued as part I of Extension Series
Bulletin No. 10. For the present year 32 members
of the faculty offer a total of 128 subjects.
The subject matter of these offerings is exceeding-
ly - varied, runnine all the way from a discussion of
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Greek drama to a system of illumination or water
supply for the farm home. Biography, history, lit-
erature, the sciences, the European War, travel, and
the useful arts all receive consideration, and in many
instances the lectures are illustrated. Likewise, the
lectures are intended to meet the requirements of
varied audiences. Some are suitable for general pub-
lic audiences, others for study clubs, farmers' or-
ganizations, or teachers' meetings, and still others
for commencement occasions, rally days, school fairs,
and other special gatherings. No fee whatever is
charged for these lectures except that the traveling
expenses of the lecturer are borne by the organiza-
tion securing him.
In some instances two or three organizations,
alumni associations, schools, etc., arrange for a joint
series of lectures, and by combining upon the same
speaker and having him deliver the same address
before the various organizations on the same trip,
reduce their expense.

REACHING THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
The University is proving a stimulator of debate
and public discussion not only in the high schools of
the State but in the elementary schools as well.
Through the help of the University, the Appa-
lachian Training School, of Boone, is holding this
fall a declamation contest among the elementary
schools of several counties. The text used by all of
these schools as a source book of material is Exten-
sion Series No. 2 of the University, ''Addresses on
Education for Use in Declamations." This bulletin
is furnished the Schools by the Bureau of Extension
of the University. The contest is carried on for the
Appalachian School by Mr. I. G. Grier, '11.
In Swain county, Messrs. H. F. Latshaw and
A. B. Combs, principals of the Almond and Bryson
City high schools, respectively, are attempting to en-

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
Weeks, Stephen B., Compiler and Editor. Index
to the Colonial and State Records of North
Carolina, covering volumes I-XXVI, with an
Historical Eeview. Raleigh, E. M. Uzzell &
The appearance of the fourth and final volume of
the Index to the Colonial Records of North Carolina
brings to a conclusion the most memorable work in
behalf of the history of this State which has ever
been undertaken within or without our borders. In
this Index, the author according to his own statement,
has made "the conscious and deliberate effort. . . .
to have every proper adjective and every proper
name, regardless of its relative importance, indexed
every time it occurs;" every fact distinct enough to
have a form and substance of its own has been "in-
dexed under every appropriate heading;" and "each
heading has been made as full as if no other heading-
was to be used." The task has been one requiring de-
tailed knowledge, authoritative historical informa-
tion, endless patience, and nice discrimination. The
magnitude of the undertaking may be realized from
the fact that the Colonial and State Records run to
twenty -six volumes, averaging more than one thous-
and quarto pages per volume ; and the four volumes
required to index these twenty-six volumes contain
more than four hundred thousand entries. The
maximum percentage of error the compiler calculates
at one per cent. Certainly, from the quite extensive
use which I have made of the Index, I should be in-
clined to conclude that the percentage is consider-
able lower than this.
The conclusion of his task Dr. Weeks has sig-
nalized by an elaborate and authoritative essay en-
titled: "Historical Review of the Colonial and State
Records of North Carolina." Chapter I is entitled
"The attempts, public and private, to gather and
publish the Colonial and State Records of North
Carolina." Chapter II, entitled "The Colonial and
State Records," is an expert's summary of their con-
The third and final chapter is a piece of research
of very exceptional value to the State ; and fully
represents the best type of research for source ma-
terials now being carried on in this country. In this
chapter, Dr. Weeks has rendered a service of the
highest importance to the North Carolina Historical
Commission. For the findings of this chapter clearly
point the inevitable way for coming publication ac-
tivities of the Commission, on the largest scale. The
brief but significant title of this chapter is "Sources
Still Uncollected," and apparently all sources known
to contain MS. North Caroliniana of the period cov-
ered by the Colonial ,and State Records have been
referred to. I should like to call attention to im-
portant sources not mentioned here — sources of
which small or no use has as yet been made. These
repositories are: The Wisconsin Historical Society
Library, the Draper MSS. in especial, which have
yielded so abundantly for my own researches; the
Shane Papers in the library of the Presbyterian His-
torical Society of Philadelphia; the archives of the
Tennessee Historical Society at Nashville; my own
findings which promise to overthrow certain che-
rished fancies of careless "historians;" and large
private collections of papers in Kentucky, as well as
the uncatalogued sources at Frankfort. Dr. Weeks
has made a careful analysis, from the printed Guides
compiled under the auspices of the Carnegie Institute
at Washington, of the North Carolina materials in
English and foreign archives, and in the govern-
ment archives in Washington. Furthermore, he has
made examination of the North Carolina materials
in the Virginia State library, and in public and pri-
vate hands in North Carolina and elsewhere, includ-
ing a valuable list of North Carolina newspapers pub-
lished prior to 1800, with a note of extant copies
and their present whereabouts. I note that Dr.
Weeks makes one important omission, which is rad-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ical. He is evidently unaware of the publication of
"A Bibliography of American Newspapers, 1690-
1820," by Mr. Clarence S. Brigham, which is now
appearing in parts in the Proceedings of the Ameri-
can Antiquarian Society. This highly valuable work
will eventually be re-issued in a single volume with
The most important words printed in this volume
are these: "His investigations lead the compiler to
the comforting conclusion that there is enough im-
printed material in sight which is worthy of pub-
lication, either in full or in the form of extended cal-
endars, to make a duplicate series of the 30 quarto
volumes which are now being completed."
The University of North Carolina confesses to a
sense of genuine pride in this completed achievement
of one of her sons — an achievement of incalculable
value to North Carolina carried through to a mem-
orable conclusion by the leading living expert on
North Caroliniana. The lasting gratitude of the
State is the just and certain portion of Stephen
Beauregard Weeks. — Archibald Hexdersox.

October 10th, a band of loyal University sons from Harvard
and Tech gathered to celebrate the University's 121st birthday.
The place was Bova's Italian Restaurant in Boston ; and
though Bova's is a long hike from Gooch's, the spirit and
enthusiasm that filled the twelve men present, amid garlic,
spaghetti, and signoras, was just as strong as ever that which
filled them amid egg sandwiches and half frys at "Oley's."
At the suggestion of Duncan McRae, a permanent organiza-
tion was effected to be known as the Harvard-Tech Alumni
Association of the University of North Carolina. W. T.

of the general extension work of the University, and an
appeal to the alumni to rally around President Graham in
his constant ideal to make the University of North Carolina
the best University possible and the standard of the country.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
at the home of their retiring president, Mr. John Webb, of
the class of '81. Covers were laid for eighteen. The table
was beautifully decorated in baskets of roses and draped in
the colors that all University men revere, white and blue.
The banquet was planned and prepared by the "Domestic
Science Club," composed of Misses Estelle White and Sallie
Webb, and it was so excellently prepared and faultlessly
served that a rising vote of thanks was extended the young
ladies for their gracious service.
The evening was one of much good cheer and inspiration.
The toasts were : "The University Man as a Business Man,"
Mr. R. H. Lewis, Jr. ; "The Extension Work of the Uni-
versity," Dr. J. A. Morris; "New Impetus at the Univer-
sity," Judge A. W. Graham ; "The University's Contribution

More than fifty of the Wake County alumni gathered at

presided over the banquet and Judge R. W. Winston, '79,
was toastmaster. Dr. A. H. Patterson, of the University, and
Dr. Charles Lee Smith, of Raleigh, were speakers.
Dr. Patterson spoke forcefully of the necessity for the
further support of the State in aiding the University to ex-
pand. He pointed to the growth of the University and its
national prestige. Only three other institutions in the South
are placed in the same class with the University, these being
Virginia, Vanderbilt, and Texas. In the faculty are six
starred men in the list of the noted scientists of the day,
while outside of the University there is not one in the
State. He emphasized the freshman advisory system, student
self-government, the general extension work of the University
and the Correspondence Courses.
Dr. Charles Lee Smith also emphasized the idea of more
effective and greater aid to the University from the State.
He outlined an ideal which every citizen should have for the
University. He declared the University to be a "humanizing,
liberalizing, and unifying force in the State." He made a
logical appeal for greater support, advocating that a direct
tax be levied upon the people of the State to aid the Uni-
versity in its expanding life.
At the conclusion of the banquet, Mr. W. B. Snow, '93, was
elected President for the ensuing year, and Mr. J. B. Cheshire,
Jr., '02, Secretary.

ciation was held at Red Springs on October 12th. Mr. D. P.
McEachern, '59, presided as President of the Association.
Mr. Hamilton McMillan, '57, acted as Secretary. An hour
was spent in social intercourse, with many expressions of
pleasure at the mention of increased enrollment at the Uni-
versity, with college reminiscences, and with much discus-
sion of various plans to increase public interest in Alma
Mater. Besides the officers, those present were : Dr. J. L.
McMillan, J. J. Thrower, W. B. Townsend, and J. E. Purcell.
Several of the fifty -members of the Rocky Mount Univer-
sity Alumni Association gathered at the Sagamore Club on the
night of October 12th and celebrated University Day with a
As this was the time for the regular business meeting of the
year the following officers were elected : Mr. F. E. Winslow,
'09, President; Mr. M. V. Barnhill, Law '09, Vice-President;
Mr. R. M. Wilson, '09, Secretary-Treasurer.
The chief speech of the evening was made by Mr. Thos.
H. Battle who had for his subject, "Larger Appropriations
for the University." In a few concise words he showed
wherein it is necessary and just that the State's greatest edu-
cational institution should have more State funds with which
to pursue its present policy of expansion.
Short, impromptu speeches were made by other members
of this association. Mr. F. E. Winslow spoke on Civic Ser-
vice Week in North Carolina. He told how this movement
had originated at the University and urged all University
alumni to give it their loyal support.
Mr. Tom Simmons, in a short speech, insisted on our work-
ing for a larger appropriation from the Legislature.
A committee consisting of the three officers together with
Mr. J. B. Ramsey and Mr. J. P. Bunn, was appointed to
arrange an outing for University Day, 191S.
One of the most successful meetings held was that of the
Rutherford alumni who gathered at the Southern Hotel in
Rutherfordton on October 10th for the purpose of paying
homage to Alma Mater and organizing a county association.
Rev. F. B. Rankin read the letter of President E. K. Graham
to the alumni and called upon the Rutherford alumni to
rally around the University in her effort of uplift in the
State. Hearty responses were made by Messrs. M. L. Ed-
wards, W. C. McRorie, Drayton Wolfe, W. C. Watkins, and
State Senator J. M. Carson. Supt. J. E. Crutchfield, of the
local schools, bore testimony to the value and help of the
University as the head of the public school system.
Rev. F. B. Rankin, '01. was elected President and Mr. D.
F. Morrow, '03, Secretary of the Rutherford Alumni Asso-
ciation. The President called a meeting of all the county
alumni for October 17th, at which time plans were made
looking toward the securing of several University professors
to deliver extension lectures in the graded school auditorium
at Rutherfordton during the winter.
The Beaufort County Alumni Association met on Saturday,
October the 10th, for the purpose of reorganizing, and per-
fecting a more permanent organization. No definite program
was carried out, but new officers were elected, and a com-
mittee appointed to plan a meeting for December. It is the
intention of the committee to have a banquet at this time,
and invite some member of the University faculty to make a
talk. There are some sixty or seventy University men in the
county, and with an active association the members should
be able to help the University in many ways, in their section
of the State. Mr. Stephen C. Bragaw, '90, was elected Presi-
dent of the Association, and Mr. C. F. Cowell, '12, Secretary.

— John Moore Craig, a student in the University during the

ten miles from Charlotte on Sunday night, September 20th,
when at a sharp turn his high powered 7-passenger automo-
bile turned turtle. Mr. Craig was hurled from the machine
and killed instantly. His death coming as it did in early
manhood, just a short while before he was to have been mar-
ried, was peculiarly sad, and was mourned for by hundreds of
friends in Charlotte, Gastonia, and other communities where
he was well known. Interment was on September 22nd in
the Craig family burying ground at Gastonia. Mr. Craig was
secretary and treasurer of the E. W. Mellon Company, cloth-
iers of Charlotte.
— Harry Murray Jones was born at Franklin, N. C, July 9,
1881 ; died at Nez Perce, Idaho, October 4, 1914.
Dr. Jones, "Little Bully," as he was affectionately called by
his college mates, graduated with the class of 1903. After
graduating he spent a year in the University Medical School.
In 1904 he entered the University of Pennsylvania and com-
pleted his course at that institution in 1906, after which he
spent a year in a hospital in Pittsburg. He then took up the
practice of his profession in his home town of Franklin, where
he remained until November, 1908, when he moved to Peck,
Idaho. About a year ago he moved from Peck to the neigh-
boring town of Nez Perce.
In 1907 Dr. Jones married Miss Mildred Butler, of Butler,
Penn., who with three children — Blanch, Harriet, and George
— survives him.
Dr. Jones's death came rather suddenly. He was recovering
from an attack of pneumonia when a sudden turn for the
worse took him off almost without warning. Strong, robust,
and the picture of health and physical manhood that he was,
it is hard for his classmates to realize that he is no more.
His memory as a strong, clean young man, as a congenial and
likable companion and classmate, and as a member of the old
University football team will abide. Peace to his memory,
and to his widow and little ones the abiding sympathy of his
college mates. May time deal gently with them.
