THE FOOTBALL The 1914 football season is ended. 
SEASON Carolina won the decision in nine 

events and in the final tenth lost 
to Virginia. In spite of the bitterness of this defeat, 
the season, when viewed in the large, presents many 
elements of success, more by far than any since 1905. 
The 1905 team lost several games and won from Vir- 
ginia; the 1914: team won every game except that 
with Virginia, including those with Georgia and 
Vanderbilt. Georgia defeated Clemson and tied Au- 
burn. Carolina rolled up a score of 41 to 6 against 
Georgia. Vanderbilt was crippled for the rest of her 
season by the Tar Heels' gruelling victory, 10 to 9. 
Carolina reached top form in the Georgia game and 
got into a slump after the Vanderbilt game. She 
never quite regained her previous form. 

A few things are to be gathered from the experi- 
ence of the season. First, spring practice is more 
advisable than summer practice. Second, a team 
does not have the second nature confidence essential 
for uncorking new styles of play that have not been 
fundamentally assimilated through intercollegiate 
scrimmage. Third, interference is the most import- 
ant art in the game of football. 

Back of the record of the season stand three men, 
Heach Coach Trenchard, a steam engine of energy, 
backfield coach Logan Cunningham, and line coach 
Arthur Bleuthenthal. One year further back are 
Tom Wilson and Tol Pendleton who last fall inau- 
gurated the Princeton formation as the basis for the 
Carolina system of play. Back of them and shoulder- 
ing the load stand the alumni. Their name is legion 
and their leaders are Messrs. George Stephens, James 
A. Gray, Jr., Albert Cox, and Clem Wright. 

Under the direction of these aggressive alumni and 
these exceptional coaches we have come a long way 
and are stil! moving ahead. From 66 to it was a lonu; 
call to victories over Georgia and Vanderbilt. From 
these victories it is not a far cry to Virginia. Vir- 
ginia del en da est! 

The large recepits from the Virginia game, the 
wise direction of the resident athletic council, and 
the efficient management of Graduate Manager Wool- 
len and Student Manager Boushall, all combined to 
knock the bottom out of Carolina's athletic debt. The 

financial statement represents progress, which in 
view of Carolina's heavy indebtedness, was not to be 

The greatest fact of all to be placed to Carolina's 
credit was the conduct of the students in Rich- 
mond. The moral sentiment of the large body of stu- 
dents was strong on the side of a worthy representa- 
tion of the University not only on the field but also 
in the city. 


THE SOCIETIES In its ]Srovember issue. The Re- 
AGAIN VIEW carried a summary of an ar- 

ticle on the Societies by W. P. 
Fuller, of the student body, the conclusion of which 
was to the effect that the Societies had lost their place 
of pre-eminence in college life and were confronted 
with the necessity of immediate, thorough-going re- 
organization if they would retain their time-honored 
I^osition of influence. 

Quite naturally the subject presented by Mr. Ful- 
ler has more than one side, and a wide divergence of 
opinion has been expressed on the campus as to the 
real state of afi'airs. The statement of a view oppo- 
site to that given by Mr. Fuller appears on another 
page over the name of G. A. Martin, '15, a member 
of the editorial board of the Magazine, of the debat- 
ing council, and for three years an inter-society de- 
bater. He hails from the environs of Winston-Salera 
and consequently is a member of the Dialectic So- 

Without further comment on the subject. The Re- 
view wishes to record several observations which 
may illumine certain phases of the question. These 
are that at present there are 430 members of the 
two Societies, 197 belonging to the Phi and 233 
to the Di. Among these are, this year, the accumu- 
lated products of several score of high school debat- 
ing societies who have had preliminary training in 
debating in their high school contests. Together with 
these are others of that tribe of Freshmen who, in 
their genuine native "hankering" after the honors of 
debate, soon consume all the material posted in the 
Library on the query and then carry on a brisk cor- 
respondence with the commissioners and governors of 



various states for first-hand expressions of expert 
views. This year that tribe, seemingly, has increased 
and it has brought to its aid not only the members 
of the student body and faculty who usually give aid 
in debate, but it has requisitioned the services of the 
faculty advisors and has made the matter of prepara- 
tion even more serious than formerly. 

In addition to this, despite the defeat of last year, 
the Societies have, within the past three years, placed 
five out of seven inter-collegiate debate victories to 
their credit and they have given life and nurture to 
the High School Debating Union, which, so far, is 
about the healthiest young idea brought forth on the 
campus within the past decade. 


AUTOMATIC The president of the University of 
INCOME Michigan evidently does not have to 

PRODUCER give himself special concern over what 
the appropriations committees of the 
legislature will or will not give the institution over 
which he presides. The matter takes care of itself, 
while the president and his co-workers, assured in 
advance that the growth of the State will result auto- 
matically in an increased income, go about the real 
work of the University — service to the people. 

The Review rejDrints in its entirety the following 
editorial note taken from the Ifovember number 
of the Michigan Alumnus in which the method of 
securing increased income is clearly set forth. No 
wonder the editor could use the word "happy" or 
even "happiest" while his pen was conveying the de- 
lightful intelligence to the "old grads" ! 

"One of the happiest of the features in the devel- 
opment of the University is its method of financial 
support by the State. To correspond with the Uni- 
versity's growth there is a continual increase in the 
wealth and resources of the State, made available at 
once through the three-eights of a mill tax. This, 
supplemented by the not inconsiderable percentage 
from the student and hospital fees and by occasional 
but very necessary gifts of various sorts from alumni 
and friends of the University, makes up the total in- 

"While the capital of endowed universities, when 
wisely and conservatively invested, always shows a 
tendency to shrink, the state university, supported 
by a mill tax, finds its capital constantly increasing 
with the growth of the State. The increase of $192,- 
000 to the annual income of the University resulting 
from the're-equalization of the property in the State, 
made by the State Board during the past summer, 
is a case in point particularly pleasing to the friends 

of the University. The total valuation of property 
in the State, according to the tax commissioners, has 
increased from approximately $2,288,000,000 in 
1912 to $2,800,000,000 in 1914, resulting in an in- 
creased income to the University from $858,000 in 
1912 to $1,050,000 in 1914. This, together with ap- 
proximately $400,000 from student fees, including 
the increase in students this year, $30,000 from the 
Summer Session, and approximately $200,000 from 
the hospitals, as well as about $35,000 from various 
minor accounts, gives the University an income for 
the present year of $1,930,000." 

□ DD 

THE FIRST A few years ago several members of 
$100,000 the faculty were seated in a railway 

car when another member joined the 
group with the announcement of a rumored gift of 
a half million dollars for the University. Without 
waiting for a verification of the truthfulness or false- 
ness — it was false — of the rumor, the group proceed- 
ed to the discussion of the way in which the money 
could be spent to the best advantage by the University. 
What to do with the first quarter of the first $100,- 
000 was the key question of the discussion. 

The Review does not know of any source from 
which a gift is to come, it wishes that it did. But it 
does not think that the discussion of University needs 
is beyond the range of fit subjects for its considera- 

■ nan 

GOOD Xo begin with, and this might not 

APPEARANCES require SO very much money, a part 
of the fund might be devoted to the 
improvement of the physical appearances of the 
University, both within and without. The Review 
does not deprecate the wisdom, the care, the artistic 
sense which have evidenced themselves in the im- 
proved greensward of the Summer Campus, the per- 
manency of the recent campus walk-ways, and the 
genuine, joy-forever quality of beauty which every- 
where expresses itself in the arboretum. In fact, 
these are the very sort of things which The Review 
would like to see more of, to see sju'eading to every 
section of the campus, even to the back of Memorial 
Hall and the environs of the Power Plant and the 
Old Commons ! 

Within doors it would not stop with an occasional 
vase of chrisanthemums or fall leaves in the library, 
and the well kept woodwork and floors of Davie Hall. 
It would like to see the Library floor covered, in whole 
or in. part, with a material which, when stepped 
upon, would not start echoes vibrating similar to 



those originating in Memorial Hall, but would rather 
enable one to go about the quest of books in customary 
library quiet. It could also wish, not only when visi- 
tors pass this way, but always, that the keys of the 
piano in the Chapel might be re-ivoried and the 
Chapel itself might j^ass through a renovation or 
transformation so complete as to leave it roomy and 
airy, and bright, a tit place for the daily and public 
gathering of University bodies. 

The Review also remembers the old days when 
the only lavatories possessed by the University were 
under the old library. The present gymnasium and 
the bathing facilities of the new dormitories mark a 
far advance over the equipment for similar purposes 
ten or only five years ago. But with this very great 
improvement, The Review could wish that through- 
out the entire University this important sort of 
equipment measured up in quality, in maintenance, 
and in appearance, to the standard usually prevailing 
in institutions not so seriously cramped in income as 
the University. 

There may be no point, whatsoever, in these obser- 
vations. And yet The Review feels instinctively 
that the University, on account of its meagre funds, 
and obviously against its manifest desire, is forced 
to set for its sons standards in these particulars less 
true and high than should be set for men upon whom 
the task of community building in large part must 
be laid, and from whom, if from anybody, the State 
has a right to expect fine civic leadership. 


LETTERS jn view of the fact that The Review 
rarely receives letters for publication 
concerning University affairs, imagine the delight 
which it necessarily experienced upon the receipt of 
the following note, the date line and author of which 
are not given, but which The Review considers one 
of the most thoughtful expressions any publication 
could receive : 

"I suppose it is no longer a novelty to have people 
tell you how well they think of The Review, but 
every time I see it I feel proud that U. N. C. is get- 
ting out such a first-class publication. 

"I will try to keep up my little illustration fund, 
so let me hear when you Jieed more money for this 

"If you are sending out any gratuitous subscrip- 
tions I would like to have you send The Review to 
the Reading Room of the Southern ^fannfacturer's 
Club, Charlotte, and if you have no free list let me 
have the bill for this subscription." 

UNIVERSITY Recent news dispatches bring the 
PRESIDENTS pleasing information to the University 
that Dr. William J. Battle, of the 
class of 1888, and for a number of years Dean of the 
University of Texas, has been, upon the resignation 
of President Mezes, appointed Acting-President of 
that institution. 

With this appointment of Dr. Battle, the Univer- 
sity finds itself the furnisher of the heads of the 
three leading State Universities of the South: Dr. 
Alderman, of Virginia, Dr. Battle, of Texas, and 
President Graham, of the University. 

Dr. Battle graduated from the University in 1888, 
studied later at Harvard University, and has fill- 
ed the office of Dean of Texas with marked efficiency 
for several years. The University finds great pleas- 
ure in the new honor which has come to him. 


THE NEWS The News Letter, the latest publication 
LETTER issued by the University through the 

Bureau of Extension, has appeared for 
the fifth time and, seemingly, has settled down to a 
work of genuine usefulness in carrying to the public 
the findings of the North Carolina Club and many 
notes of special interest concerning the work of the 
various departments of the University. Its recep- 
tion by individuals as well as the press of the State 
has met with instantaneous and hearty approval, and 
it bids fair to serve the University most admirably 
in connecting it with the life and thought of the en- 
tire State. 

At present four thousand copies are being issued 
weekly. It will be sent free to any alumnus upon re- 
quest, and the management will be glad to receive the 
names of persons who the alumni think will be in- 
terested in receiving it. 


FROM MURPHY Great success is attending the ef- 
TO MANTEO forts of the University to encour- 
age public discussion in North 
Carolina. Already two hundred and twenty-five 
schools have enrolled in the North Carolina Debating 
Union, and indications are that the enrollment will 
reach 250. Triangles are being mapped out now for 
the debates which will be held throughout the State 
next March. The list of entries includes the schools 
of Manteo and Murphy, and all manner of schools 
between these two historic points. 

The enrollment of students in the University for 
the fall term has reached 982. This is the largest 
enrollment in the history of the institution. 



Ex-President William Howard Taft, Ambassador Romulu S. Naon, Dr. John Dewey, and 

Others are Included in the Schedule 

The first task to whidi the University, in common 
with other colleges and universities, devotes itself, 
is the training of men in the discovery and acquisi- 
tion of truth by means of study in the class room and 
through investigation in the laboratory. In addition 
to this it desires that its students shall have an oj^por- 
tunity to feel the tug and undertow of the best in 
contemi>orary thought whether relating to State, or 
national, or international affairs. 

To this end during recent years it has brought to 
its lecture ijlatform through the McNair and faculty 
lectureshiiJ foundations, and through other special 
means, an increasingly large number of men tho- 
roughly competent to speak of many significant move- 
ments in contemporary thought and life. The list in- 
cludes such names as those of President Woodrow 
Wilson, Ambassador James Bryce, Dr. David Starr 
Jordan, Dr. Henry Van Dyke, President Arthur T. 
Hadley, President Charles W. Eliot, Dr. Karl Kath- 
gen, Roosevelt Exchange Professor from the Uni- 
versity of Berlin, Dr. Soshuke Sato, Exchange Pro- 
fessor from Japan, Mr. Albert ISToyes, Mr. Edward 
Markham, and President George Vincent; and the 
conviction, on the part of those v?ho have heard the 
messages brought by these authoritative speakers, is 
that through their utterances the University has given 
the student hody an unusually splendid opportunity 
to catch the drift of present day world currents. 


The policy for the present year provides for a fur- 
ther increase in general lectures of the character indi- 
cated. Among these will be a series of three to be 
delivered by Ex-President William Howard Taft, on 
the American Presidency. These lectures for this 
year are made possible through individual subscrip- 
tions, hut it is hoped that the series may be placed 
on a permanent foundation and that annually lec- 
tures may be delivered upon the general theme of 
American Citizenship. The lectures this year will 
he delivered on March 17, 18, and 19. 


The opening of the Panama Canal and the crisis 
in American trade incident to the Great War. have 
turned the thought of America to her neighbor to 
the South. Today as never before, South America is 
a country in which Americans, and especially South- 

erners, are greatly interested. Its history, its manners 
and customs, its government, its commerce and trade, 
all are matters of deepening interest to us. To clar- 
ify and direct this interest Ambassador Eomulu S. 
Naon, of the Argentine liepublie, and member of 
the A. B. C. Mediation Board, will deliver three 
lectures upon his country and the establishment of 
hel]>ful relations between the two Americas. 


The John Calvin McNair lectures delivered in 
previous years by Dr. F. H. Smith, of the University 
of Virginia, Dr. Francis L. Patton, of the Princeton 
Theological Seminary, Dr. Henry Van Dyke, of 
Princeton, President Arthur T. Hadley, of Yale, 
President David Star Jordon, of Leland Standford, 
President George Vincent, of the University of Min- 
nesota, will be delivered in early February by Dr. 
John Dewey. Dr. Dewey is professor of psychology 
in Columbia University and the author of a large 
number of scholarly books on ethical, psychological, 
and philosophical suhjects. 


As announced in the October Review, a new lec- 
tureship for the purpose of giving wider currency to 
the productive thought and scholarship of Southern 
Universities has been established, with the result that 
prominent members of the faculties of Virginia, 
North 'Carolina, South 'Carolina, and Vanderbilt, will 
deliver series of exchange lectures during the winter 
and early spring. Dr. F. P. Venable is to represent 
the University at South Carolina, and Prof. William 
Thornton, Dean of the School of Engineering at the 
University of Virginia, will deliver the series at 
Chapel Hill. 


Some ten years ago, during the period in which 
the Modern Literature Club of the University flour- 
ished, the subject of North Carolina literature was 
frequently made the topic of discussion from the 
platform, and visitors such as Dr. Edwin Mims, Dr. 
Benjamin Sledd, and the late John Charles McNeill, 
were frequently heard. Under the auspices of the 
North Carolina Club, arrangements are now being 
concluded whereby a series of from three to six lec- 
tures will he held during the year in which economic 



and social conditions in North Carolina will be dis- 
cussed by North Carolinians prominent in these spe- 
cial fields. 

The program of this series, together mth details 
concerning the dates and subjects of all the lectures 

to which reference has been made above, will be given 
•out later "by the University. All the lectures will 
be oiJen to the public and as in previous years a 
large number of visitors from the State will be pre- 


The Final Game of the Season Goes to Virginia 20 to 3 

After a season of unbroken victories Carolina met 
defeat at the hands of the University of Virginia 
Thanksgiving Day in Eichmond in a game fiercely 
fought through four quarters but ending in the ach- 
ing score of 20 to 3. This annual Southern classic 
reached its highwater mark of championship interest, 
inter-state rivalry, and spectacular accompaniment. 
Nearly 15,000 people saw the game. Seats were tax- 
ed beyond their capacity, standing room was packed 
to the limit ; men and boys were perched on top of the 
grandstand, on roofs of houses, fences, poles, and 
every other available sitting, standing, and hanging 
place within the viewpoint of the human eye. 

The eyes of the South were turned to Richmond 
for the issue of this contest between the two univer- 
sities that stood pre-eminent in their Southern circle. 
The people back home awaited with eager spirit the 
news from Broad Street Park as a hundred wires 
flashed their various message of disappointment and 
joy into the towns and villages of two states. Five 
thousand North Carolinians, with much of the per- 
sistent faith and more of the spontaneous enthusiasm 
of the Vermont Democrats, rolled into Richmond 
town to stand by and pull for the White and Blue. 
There has never been such an aprising of the alumni 
— may their tribe increase! Hanging to straps on 
street cars, dashing about in automobiles, lining the 
streets, grouped at corners, jammed into hotels, were 
luindreds and hundreds of Virginia and Carolina 
alumni, and everywhere were thousands and thous- 
ands of chrysanthemums speaking in colors of yellow 

and white the loyalty of hearts ever generous in vic- 
tory and never conquered in defeat. 

Among the notable Carolina alumni present were 
Secretary of the Na\^, Josephus Daniels, Governor 
Locke Craig, and President Graham. Virginia's 
president, Dr. Alderman, one of Carolina's truest 
sons, was prevented from being present by the con- 
dition of his health just recently restored. John 
Skelton Williams, member of the Federal Reserve 
Board, Virginia alumnus, joined Governor Stuart in 
welcoming to Richmond the Tar Heel governor and 
his uniformed staff. 

Besides the array of old football stars of Carolina 
and Virginia, many athletic figures of nation-wide 
name gave unusual distinction to the game. Tom Wil- 
son, line coach at Wisconsin, Tol Pendleton, backfield 
coach at Princeton, Emmons, quarterback coach at 
Princeton, Hart of Princeton, who broke his neck in 
scrimmage and whose life now hangs by a muscle, 
were present in full force for Carolina. By adding 
to these Billy Reynolds, Carolina's coach in the later 
nineties, and the present staff of Trenchard, Cunning- 
ham, and Bleuthenthal, an almost complete Princeton 
team was made up, largely All-American. Several 
Carolina ex-captains were at the game, Winston, who 
was in the scrimmages, and Foy Roberson, Lonnie 
Abernathy, and Will Tillett, who were on the side- 
lines. Not to be omitted among those also present 
was the dashing Tyrus Raymond Cobb, athlete non- 

It is a great occasion, this Carolina-Virginia game. 







The student send-off, the record mass meetings, the 
crowded, enthusiastic excursions, and the storming 
of the city by the gay-liearted legions, young and old, 
fair and unfair, are incidental by-play to the big 
game certain to afford its electric thrills from whistle 
to whistle. The crowd-stirring patriotism, the feeling 
for the colors, and the pull of a cause keep this event 
supreme in South Atlantic athletic interest above 
every question of continuous defeat and matches and 

The morning was Carolina's. Her sons captured 
the Jefferson Hotel at a pace set by the student band. 
Director Eoyster, Chief Cheerer Coggins, and their 
powerfully lunged cohorts sounded the remotest re- 
cesses of the far carrying hotel. The afternoon was 
Virginia's douhtfully during the iirst half, decisively 
during the second. 

At 2 :28 Captain Tayloe shook hands with Captain 
Gooeh and at 2 :30 over 10,000 hearts were suspended 
as Winston sent the ball sailing high to Virginia's 
ten yard line. Early in the first quarter Gooch 
fumbled a punt and Cowell recovered in Virginia 
territory. Tandy failed by a narrow margin at a 
drop kick from the forty yard line. A little later 
Bridgers intercepted a forward pass and came back 
forty-five yards, the longest run of the game. Tandv 
again failed to send the ball over the goal bar. 

Soon after the second quarter began, Mayer plung- 
ed his way through Carolina's stubborn defense for 
the first score. Barker kicked goal. Carolina's only 
score came in this quarter. Winston by a brilliant 
run had placed the ball in threatening distance of the 
goal. Tandy from the thirty-five yard line sent the 
ball between the uprights. The half ended Virginia 
7, Carolina 3. 


Between halves Governor Craig made a rousing 
speech to the Carolina bleachers and Secretary Dan- 
iels promised to vary the Carolina attack by calling 
into action his submarines. All the while the two stu- 
dent bodies featured the occasion. Set off against 

each other they sent volumes of cheers and songs 
across the field, clashing in the air above the con- 

tending teams. 


At a critical point in the third quarter Carolina 
held Virginia for downs in Virginia territory. Foust 
for Carolina standing close to the sidelines punted 
down the field but the ball went out of bounds just 
beyond the scrimmage line. Mayer soon went over 
for the second touchdown. Barker kicked goal. Vir- 
ginia 14, Carolina 3. 


In the fourth quarter Carolina got down into Vir- 
ginia territory and the fourth attempt at a drop kick 
went wide. Virginia followed this up by marching 
straight down the field and sent Mayer over for his 
third touchdown. Barker failed to kick goal. Vir- 
ginia 20, Carolina 3. 

Thus the game ended. 


Virginia's great strength consisted in the terrific 
line-punching of Mayer and the dazzling running 
and masterful generalship of Gooch. The Virginia 
attack was simple and straightforward hut finished 
to perfection. Carolina's generalship was overshad- 
owed by the clear thinking Virginia field marshal, 
and her interference was disappointingly ineffective. 
The shift formation was blocked by Virginia and 
Winston and Tayloe hardly had a chance to get away 
at their full going value. Coleman broke through 
guard and stopped plays at the source. Virginia's 
tackles and ends smothered end runs and off-tackle 
plays. On defense, Tandy, Parker, and Homewood, 
stood out above any players on the field. Parker 
strengthened his name as one of the greatest defen- 
sive backs in this section. Homewood time and again 
crashed to pieces Virginia's formidable interference 
and nailed the runner at the scrimmage line. Gooch 
and Homewood were the towering figures of the 




Virginia played her secondary defense to meet 
Carolina's end and oti' tackle plays and Carolina fail- 
ed to take advanta;j,e in open play. Carolina played 
her secondary defense to meet the open game and 
Virginia played a close, straight game. Carolina's 
big mistake was the persistent effort to S3ore by drop- 
kicks instead of trying to win by tovichdowns. 

All in all it was a hard fight, a great game, and the 
best team in the South won.

David Tayloe o*' the first year medical class has 
been elected captiin of the 1915 football team. 

Next season will make Tayloe's third year on the 
team and his second year as 'Varsity Captain. In 
electing him to succeed himself his teammates con- 
ferred ujiou him an honor of unusual distinction. 
Tayloe is one of the foremost halfbacks in the South 
ard he has been the choice in several All-Southern 


The other Carolina men who have figured in All- 
Southern and All-South Atlantic make-ups are 
Homewood, Winston, Tandy, and Jones. The At- 
lanta Constitution placed Tandy at centre and Win- 
ston at end. The Richmond Neivs Leader chose 
Tandy, centre; Homewood, end; Jones, guard; and 
Tayloe, half-back. The All-State team included six 
Carolina men, Tandy, Tayloe, Winston, Homewood, 
Kamsey and Jones. The list also included Huske in 
case he should don a uniform this season. Huske did 
come out for the Virginia game and fought a good 


The class football season was a close contest for the 
championship between the sophomores and seniors. 
Both of these teams defeated the juniors and fresh- 
men by large scores and tied each other in a to 
game. The seniors won the deciding game by the 
score of 7 to 2, and copped the coveted championship. 
This is the first time that a senior team has won the 
championship beyond the memory of the present col- 
lege generation. 

The all class was selected by the two class team 
coaches as follows : centre, Craig, guards, Harrell and 
Smith, tackles, Little and Wilkins, ends, ]\Ionroe and 
Whitaker, quarter and captain, Woollcott, halves, 
Coleman and Fitzgerald, and fullback, Nance. Ran- 
son was chosen as utility end and back.

versity owes so much, 'has been in Chapel Hill this 
week completing plans for tlie building of the ath- 
letic field for which he has donated a large sum. He 
brought with him the blue prints of field, track, and 
grandstand. The new field will include the present 
lone and probably some of the adjacent territory to 
the south. Drainage, surface soil for sodding, will 
all be provided for. It is possible that the grading 
for the new field will begin shortly after Thanksgiv- 
ing; at any rate it will be in readiness for the base- 
ball season. On the north side there will l)e two 
large concrete grandstands, separated by the Presi- 
dent's stand. Under one grandstand will be dressing 
and shower rooms for the teams. The whole field 
will be constructed according to the most improved 
methods, and will be a great asset to the University. 
The College is most deeply indebted to Dr. Emerson 
for his generosity, and is proud of him as one of her 
most distinguished sons.-

Editor, Alumxi Eeview : 

Sir: — An outsider reading the article on the so- 
cieties published in the November number of the 
University Magazine and reprinted, in part, in the 
last numher of The Alumni Keview, would be led 
to believe that the Dialectic and Philanthropic So- 
cieties are on the brink of ruin and play a very uu- 
imjwrtant role in student activities at the University. 
And the University alumni who have read the article 
must think that great transformations have recently 
taken place in the University if the societies have 
lost so much prestige and power and have degenerate 
ed into organizations which exjiend ninety-nine per 
cent of their energy in revolving their machinery and 
only one per cent in actual work. But such is not 
the case. 

Last year one of the societies did pass through a 
rather critical stage and the trouble was admittedly 
caused by negligence on the part of the officers of 
the society. The other society has at no time within 
the last three years felt any lack of interest. Her 
attendance has been conspicuously good. There have 
been no wrangles or serious dissentions among her 
members. Financially she is in first class condi- 
tion. Upon inquiry I find that the crisis in the other 
society is passed and that she too has begun to work 
in fine style. 

The conclusion reached in the article after numer- 
ous unsubstantiated statements is that the only thing 
left to the societies is to devote themselves exclusively 
to debating. But debating is not the sole aim, nor, 
in the opinion of many, is it the main aim of the 
societies. Many men voluntarily go to society who 
rarely participate in the debates; yet those men are 
oftentimes the societies' most loyal members. The 
association of the fellows in society is worth fully as 
much as all that is learned in the art of debating. 
The parliamentary rules learned in society are inval- 
uable to many. And there are other benefits derived 
from the societies by those who attend and take a 
proper interest in the work. 

It is stated in the article, "During the last three 
years the losses of the societies have been appalling." 
Wliat are those losses ? In numbers ? We have more 
members than ever before. In interest? There is 
today more real, genuine interest in the societies' 
work than there has been at any time in the last 
three years. In success on the platform ? In the 
last three years Carolina has participated in seven 
inter-collegiate debates and has won five of them. 
She won from Pennsylvania, Tulane, Vanderbilt, 
Virginia, and Johns Hopkins, and lost one to Vir- 

ginia and one to Johns Hopkins. Those losses oc- 
curred last year, and we think that they were due 
in great part to neither the men nor the system. Ob- 
viously those "appalling losses" are highly imaginary. 
The societies are on firm bases and are doing excellent 

And what is proposed to take the place of our 
present societies'^ The conclusion of the article is 
that the societies must reorganize "with a limited 
membership carefully chosen." Limited to what 
number ? By whom, and by what standard, shall the 
members be "carefully chosen" ? Limited to one hun- 
dred members? But suppose one hundred and one 
want to join, which hundred shall be taken and which 
one shall be left ? How can the members be carefully 
chosen? Who knows how much interest a freshman 
has in real society work until he is given a chance? 
Shall we take those who are already good debaters? 
But if we begin with the finished product, the socie- 
ties have no work to do. We begin at the bottom. If 
anyone has anything in him he is given a chance to 
show it time after time before an audience of a hun- 
dred men. In the society the fratemity-man and the 
non-fraternity-man, the rich and the poor, the worker 
and the drone, the talented and the untalented — ^all 
meet on equal footing and each man stands for what 
he is worth. Merit and merit alone is recognized and 
rewarded. jSTo one is excluded from membership. 
Instead of maintaining such a society as this we are 
asked to reorganize and each year allow only a limit- 
ed number of privileged characters to have the honor 
of becoming a member of society. But this will hard- 
ly be done ; for fully ninety per cent of the societies' 
members believe that, although organizations have 
their place in college, still no such "closed shop" af- 
fair should or will ever usurp the place of the Dia- 
lectic and Philanthropic Societies. 

The great objection to the proposed reorganization 
is that no such change is needed ; and if such a change 
were needed, we would call for something besides an 
organization whose membership would be limited to 
a few experts. The writer of the article says the 
trouble is organic and that it is the surgeon's knife 
that is needed and not the "pills of the orator." But 
the doctor has wrongly diagnosed the case; what he 
thought to be a severe case of chronic appendicitis is 
nothing more than a light attack of indigestion. The 
societies are not wrong in principle.

The Y. M. C. a. is continuing its work in the 
community. Its latest activity has been that of form- 
ing Lwu patrols of Boy Scouts in the village. 




The University, through her faculty aud alumni, 
took an important part at the meeting of the State 
Teachers' Assembly in Charlotte in November. 

Prof. M. C. S. Noble, Dean of the School of Edu- 
cation, presided over all of the meetings as president 
of the assembly. He delivered his presidential ad- 
dress on Thanksgiving evening. 

Prof. N. W. Walker jiresided over the sessions of 
the State High School Principals, and presented sev- 
eral papers before the various bodies of the assembly. 

Other members of the faculty who attended the 
meetings and presented papers were: Dr. L. A. Wil- 
liams, Dr. H. W. Chase, Prof. E. C. Branson, and 
Prof. Zebulon Judd. 

Alumni other than members of the faculty present- 
ing papers were Messrs. T. W. Andrews, of Reids- 
ville; A. T. Allen, of Salisbury; Dr. J. Y. Joyner, 
and L. 'C. Brogden, of Raleigh; A. Vermont, of 
Smithfield ; J. S. Wray, of Gastonia; Harry Howell, 
of Asheville ; and R. A. Merritt, of Greensboro. 

Miss Mary Owen Graham, a member of the faculty 
of the University Summer School and a sister to Pres- 
ident E. K. Graham, was elected president of the 
assembly for the ensuing year. Mr. R. H. Wright, 
'97, president of the East Carolina Teacher Train- 
ing School, was elected vice-president; and Mr. E. 
E. Sams, '98, of Raleigh, was re-elected secretary of 
the assembly. 

Mr. A. T. Allen, '97, of Salisbury, was elected 
president of the association of city superintendents ; 
Mr. J. S. Wray, '97, of Gastonia, vice-president; and 
Mr. Harry Harding, '99, of Charlotte, secretary. 

Dr. J. Y. Joyner, '81, was re-elected president of 
the association of county superintendents. 


Dr. J. G. de R. Hamilton, Alumni Professor of 
History in the University, was the recipient of two 
high honors within the week of December 1-5. At the 
meeting of the State Literary and Historica. Asso- 
ciation held in Raleigh, December 1 and 2, he was 
awarded the Patterson Cup in recognition of the dis- 
tinctive merit of his "Reconstruction in North Caro- 
lina," and at Williamsburg, Va., on the night of De- 
cember 5, he was elected a member of Phi Beta Kap- 
pa by William and Mary College. 

Dr. Hamilton is the fourth member of the faculty 
or alumni association of the University to receive the 
Patterson cup, those preceeding him being Dr. K. P. 
Battle, Mr. R. D. W. Connor, and Dr. Archibald 
Henderson. Dr. Edwin Mims, formerly of the fac- 

ulty, was awarded the cup, but previous to his con- 
nection with the University. 

Dr. Hamilon's election to membership in the par- 
ent chapter of Phi Beta Kappa was in keeping with 
the custom at William and Mary of bestowing this 
special honor upon students and authors not con- 
nected with the institution in recogtiition of distinct- 
ive work in the fields of literature and history. 


The latest bulletin issued by the University is 
Extension Series No. 11, entitled Ship Subsidies. 
This bulletin is intended primarily for the use of 
debaters in schools having membership in the North 
Carolina Debating Union, and secondarily for the 
use of any person in the State who has need for it. 

It contains 72 pages of valuable material on the 
ship subsidy question which is to be debated by the 
schools next spring. A brief, with outlines on both 
sides, is given, together with a complete statement 
as to the present condition of the American merchant 
marine and the subsidy policies of the various coun- 
tries. Articles the subsidy policy and writ- 
ten by Messrs. W. L. Maiwin, J. H. Gallinger, W. 
P. Frye, Theodore Roosevelt, and others, are reprint- 
ed in the bulletin. Opposed to this policy appear 
articles taken from the writings of Messrs. J. C. Wat- 
son, T. E. Burton, Gustav Kustermann, E. Y. Webb, 
and others. 


Incidental to the meeting of the North Carolina 
State Conference of the Daughters of the American 
Revolution, the General Davie Chapter, of Durham, 
on Tuesday afternoon, November 2nd, presented to 
the University and to the State, a memorial in honor 
of General William R. Davie. 

The exercises, which were attended by the Chapter 
from Durham and fifty or more delegates to the State 
Conference, together with faculty, students, and mem- 
bers of the community, were begun by an invocation 
by Rev. W. D. Moss, of the Presbyterian church. 
Mrs. J. F. Wily, of Durham, presented the mem- 
orial, which was accepted by President Graham. 
Mrs. Wm. N. Reynolds, of Winston-Salem, regent 
of the State organization of the D. A. R., spoke in 
behalf of the whole State and told of the interest 
which North Carolinians took in the event. 

The memorial is in the form of a beautiful, simple, 
granite seat which has been placed north of the "Da- 
vie Poplar." It was unveiled by Masters Edward 
Graham, Jr., and Eugene Morehead Wily. 




Both in Chapel Hill and in various communities 
of the State, the University took an active part in 
the celebration of Community Service Week. One 
hundred students and members of the faculty took 
part in improving the grounds around Swain Hall 
and in working Franklin street. The work was done 
under the supervision of the engineering students 
of the University. 

Members of the faculty made addresses over the 
State during the week as follows: President Gra- 
ham at Hillsboro; Professor Bernard at Greenville; 
•Judd at Raleigh; Stacy at Wilkesboro; Noble ar 
Bonlee; Walker at Warrenton; L. A. Williams at 
Burgaw; Branson at Kocky Mount, Raleigh, and 



The Dramatic Club is this season presenting Ber- 
nard Shaw's "Arms and the Man." This play was 
given in Gerrard Hall on December 4th and was 
universally acclaimed to "be the best production 
which the Club has yet presented. The Club play- 
ed in Raleigh on the 7th, Golds'boro on the 8th and 
Washington on the 9th. 

The cast consists of Messrs. C. L. Coggins, Her- 
schel Johnson, W. D. Kerr, W. P. M. Weeks, B. 
L. Meredith, Bruce Webb, Jas. Harrison, and E. L. 
Applewhite. Mr. F. 0. Clarkson is manager. Prof. 
McKie is head coach and Messrs. Howe, Dargan, 
and Thornton are associated with him as assistant 


Saturday night, November 14, the petitioning body 
for the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity was installed as the 
Kappa Chapter of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity at 
their chapter house on Cameron Avenue. 

The initiates were: Claude Boseman, Robert T. 
Bryan, Edward Marsh, J. Shepherd Bryan, Raby 
Tenjient and Frank L. Nash. Affiliate: Manuel G. 
Quevedo (Georgia Tech). 

Visitors were: R. G. Thacker, Tom Henderson,, 
and J. H. Cook of Davidson. Other visitors included 
]\Ir. Hul^ert Langford, chief instituting officer, and 
Mr. J. D. Carroll, Graind President of the fraternity, 
— the latter two coming from Columbia, S. C. — Tar 


There is ample evidence that the entire State is 
interested in the correspondence study courses at 

the University. Representatives of the following 
10 counties are now at work: Duplin, Camden, 
Johnston, Lincoln, New Hanover, Stokes, Guilford, 
Caldwell, Halifax, Lenoir. Inquiries are coming 
in daily from every section of the State asking for 
specific information. If you are at all interested, a 
postal addressed to the Bureau of Extension will 
bring you full information. 


Mrs. Laura Overman Mangum, widow of the late 
Rev. A. W. Mangum, Professor of Philosophy in the 
University, and mother of Dr. C. S. Mangum, of the 
Medical faculty of the University, died at her home 
in Chapel Hill at four o'clock on the morning of 
November 3rd. Her illness had been of considerable 
duration and her death was not unexpected. 

The loss to the community in the death of Mrs. 
Mangum is profound, as for many years in her home 
and churdh she had exerted a fine influence upon the 
life of the University and village alike. 

Mrs. Mangum was a sister of Senator Lee S. Over- 
man and Messrs. Ed and Charles Overman, and 
mother of Dr. C. S. Mangum, Mrs. N. H. D. Wilson, 
Mr. A. W. Mangum, and Miss Juliette Mangum. 


The University Library is the recipient of a gift in 
the form of books and bound periodicals from the 
library of William Boylan, of Raleigh. The gift 
comprises something over three hundred volumes, 
among which are a mimber of special English sets and 
early 'newspapers. Conspicuous among them are beau- 
tifully bound copies of the Spectator, Bell's Poets, the 
British Theater, and early volumes of the Edinburgh 
Review and the Annual Register. A copy of the Ral- 
eigh Minerva of 1812 is also included, a publication 
of which only a few copies are still extant. 

The gift is made by Mr. William Boylan, of Ral- 
eigh, in memory of his son, the late William James 
Boylan, who was a student at the University from 
1904 to 1907. 


The Carolina Chcmint is the name of a publication

Henderson, Archibald. The Changing Drama. 
New York, Henry Holt & Co., 1914. 
Not many readers of the Charlotte Observer of ten 
or twelve years ago realized that certain articles by 
"Erskine Steele" were prophetic of a brilliant career. 
One's indifference to new subjects is frequently the 
result of ignorance which he has no desire to cure. 
Academic criticism is only too apt to take refuge in 
well established names — too conservative to take up 
with new authors. Many of us were not willing to 
be impressed even when this same critic began to 
write on modern dramatists for the leading magazines 
of the country. When these were collected in book 
form and were in turn followed by volumes of biogra- 
phy, there were still those — the present reviewer 
among the number — who refused to be interested, and 
who were impressed rather with the critic's advocacy 
of radical thinkers and radical principles of art. They 
found it easy to criticize the immature and somewhat 
affected style and were disinclined to see that a young 
man had found for himself a distinct field of literary 
criticism. Such indifference on the part of even his 
colleagTies and friends would have reacted on a man 
less determined and less resourceful than Archibald 
Henderson. He knew what he was about — while 

some of us must make atonement in the belated recog- 
nition of a talented critic of cosmopolitan propor- 

After many years of diligent study of modern Eu- 
ropean dramatists, years of travel which gave oppor- 
tunity for the first-hand study of the modern theatre, 
Professor Henderson now presents this remarkable 
volume — at once an interpretation of the contribu- 
tions and tendencies of the modern drama and a pene- 
trating and brilliant exposition of modern life and 
thought. To those already conversant with the writ- 
ings of these dramatists this book serves to organize 
disconnected impressions and ideas. To those who 
have not yet waked up to the fact that we have had 
for the past fifty years a distinctive period in dra- 
matic and even literary history, it is extremely sug- 
gestive of "fresh woods and pastures new." 

Professor Henderson is himself a realization of the 
dramatic critic, for whom he modestly hopes to pre- 
pare the way — "liberal in spirit, catliolic in taste, 
who will set forth deliberately, clearly, and without 
prejudice, the history of the contemporary drama 
from the period of Ibsen down to the present mo- 
ment." Throughout the volume we have an exhibi- 
tion of "creative criticism as applied to the new forms 
and the display of a more catholic spirit in judging 
the original, experimental art work of today." Along 
with his comprehensive knowledge, his maturer judg- 
ment, and artistic taste, he has overcome the chief de- 
fects of his early style and has attained at last a clear- 
cut and individual medium of expression. There is 
not a dull page from beginning to end ; for it is real- 
ly a life-like history of the modern drama. 

It is difficult in so short a space to summarize a 
book which is itself so succinct a summary of a great 
wealth of material. The modern drama, which has 
been so largely determined by the new cosmopolitan 
spirit, by science, by democracy, and by social and 
industrial problems, has several distinct types, all of 
which are concisely characterized and illustrated 
by Professor Henderson. We have "The Drama of 
Immediate Actuality" as compared with the Roman- 
tic drama • — people of our own day speak in the 
language and the thought of the present to such an 
extent that an audience or a reader becomes easily 
identified with the characters in the play. In the 
"Drama of Ideas or Intellectual Content" dramatists 
have awakened thought through emotion and have be- 
come the heralds of new ideas — the prophets of tlie 
future. In the "Social Drama" modern society with 
its conventions and characters plays a most important 
part, whether we consider the social comedy of Shaw 
or the social tragi-comedy of Ibsen. In Greek tragedy 



the individual struggles against fate, in the Eliza- 
bethan there is the conflict of diverse elements within 
the individual man, while in modern tragedy we have 
the conflict of the individual with society. Tragedy in 
human lives may he due to heredity, to environment, 
and to social institutions and customs which have lost 
their significance for the human spirit. The influence 
of science is best seen in the "Drama of Pure Natural- 
ism," which reached its climax in Hauptmann and in 
some of Ibsen's plays. 

It may be readily seen, then, that the modern 
drama is a direct outcome of the modern life — 
that its subject matter therefore appeals to all who 
would understand the social, political, and religious 
tendencies of today. Corresponding to this change in 
subject matter is a change in the technique of the 
di"ama. In the disciission of this technique Professor 
Henderson shows himself a literary critic of marked 
ability. The question as to what tragedy is, the sub- 
stitution of prose for poetry as a medium of expres- 
sion between characters, the use of animated dialogue 
as opjxised to the monologue, the abolition of the solil- 
oquy and the ''a.side," the leading character's opin- 
ions fulfilling the function of the old Greek Chorus, 
the substitution of commonplace men and women for 
the conventional hero of the old drama, the changes 
wrought by modern stage-craft, are all discussed and 
illustrated by the author. There was never a better 
illustration of the futility of judging any new foiin 
of literature by old standards of criticism than is the 
author's exposition of the vital connection between 
the subject matter and the technique of European 
dramatists. In this part of the volume he has done 
exactly the same sort of critical work as did those 
who found a proper basis for the judgment of the 
Shakespearian drama as compared with the ancient 
drama. Once more we have a striking illustration of 
Mr. Howell's remark that no good old thing should 
ever be allowed to stand in the way of the good new 

Tlie final impression of his interesting and com- 
pelling volume is, that all thoughtful men must reck- 
on with the changing drama — this latest manifesta- 
ion of creative genius. One may not agree with the 
critic or with any particular dramatist's point of view 
— one may even refute and condemn the views of life 
suggested by Ibsen, Brieux, and Shaw. Professor 
Henderson himself shows more of a disposition in 
the volume than in some of his previous writings to 
judge rather than to advocate them as wise interpret- 
eis of life. Be that as it may, he has (!Stabli.shed be- 
yond per-adventure that the modern drama has a 
significance, an individual or .social \-aliie, that can 

no longer be minimized by anyone who would under- 
stand what modern life is in all its bewildering com- 
plexity. Edwin Mims. 

One of the activities which has given marked dis- 
tinction to the administration of the United States 
Bureau of Education during the incumbency of Dr. 
P. P. Claxton, has been the dissemination, through 
carefully prepared monographs, of information con- 
cerning many phases of modern educational develop- 
ment and practice. 

In the preparation of these special bulletins, Caro- 
lina, through members of its faculty and alumni, has 
had a conspicuous part. Since 1912 "County 
Schools for City Boys," by William S. Myers, now 
a professor at Princeton, "History of Public School 
Education in Arkansas," by Stephen B. Weeks, now 
of the U. S. Bureau of Education, "Cultivating 
School Grounds in Wake County, N. C," by Z. V. 
Judd, now of the University, "Training Courses for 
Rural Teachers," by R. H. Wright, President of the 
East Carolina Training School, and "The Georgia 
Club," by E. C. Branson, now of the University, 
have appeared. 

To this list has just been added as bulletin No. 
20 for 1914 "The Rural School and Hookworm 
Disease," by Jno. A. Ferrell, M. D., Assistant Di- 
rector General of the International Health Com- 
mission, Washington, D. C. The bulletin comprises 
43 pages and eight plates. It presents in detail the 
work which is being done throughout the States in- 
fected toward the eradication of the hookworm and 
it shows the exceedingly close relation of good health 
to educational progress. 

Plate No. 1 of the bulletin, which shows where 
county dispensaries have been operated in affected 
States, conveys the information that North Carolina 
has provided for more county dispensaries than any 
other State in the list, leading with a total of 96. 
Mississippi follows next with 62, while Virginia and 
Kentucky stand at the bottom with 24 and 19 re- 

Dr. Ferrell oliserves that inasmuch as the rural 
public school has been the source of infection from 
which the disease has spread, it must be made the 
center from which an organized fight against it and 
in behalf of rural sanitation in general must be di- 

The publication of this bulletin will give stimulus 
to all movements looking to better public health in 
rural sections and represents, on the part of Dr. 
Ferrell, the extension of the splendid work he did 
for North Carolina while he was in charge of the 
State's Campaign against the hookworm. 





One of the most important and f ar-reacliing of the 
activities of the State University is its extension 
work. This is the part of the University that reaches 
the people, and in these days of moonlight schools any 
educational facility that touches the rank and file is 
of moment and peculiar interest. 

It is not surprising that the extension department 
of the University has decided to publish a news- 
paper to get in closer touch with the folks its wants 
to help. Through regular visits from a weekly news- 
paper the vital relation of the highest State educa- 
tional institution to the North Carolina public will 
be kept constantly to the fore and it is certain that 
the extension bureau will find this a more satisfac- 
tory use of the printed page than the publication of 
bulletins at irregular intervals. 

The extension work of the University has always 
appealed to us as a work of vast possibilities and of 
immense value to the University in the way of 
strengthening it with the people to whom of covirse 
it looks for continued support. It is gratifying to 
know that practical, modern methods are to be follow- 
ed to the end that the sphere of its usefulness may 
be wide. 

The News Letter should prove a welcome addition 
to the press of the State, and that it will be welcomed 
into the homes into which it may fi'iid its way is 'be- 
yond doubt. — News and Observer, Nov. 15, 1914. 



Another new departure of the University of North 
Carolina in the direction of general uplift and de- 
velopment work is in the publication of a weekly pa- 
per caller The University News Letter. Through it 
will be given the progressive literature of the day as 
related to North Carolina, and it will in particular 
further the interest of the recently originated county 
club idea. The University seems to be making fine 
pi'ogress in its determination in extending its campus 
limits to the boundaries of the State in every direc- 
tion; in putting the culture of the University center 
at the command of all the people of every sort and 
kind; in relating, adjusting, and adapting its activ- 
ities to democratic needs in North Carolina, in a 
State-wide ministry of service. Evidence is constant- 
ly multiplying that the University of North Carolina 
has entered upon a policy of activities perhaps the 
most useful in its history. — Charlotte Observer, Nov. 
16, 1914. 


To the casual observer it has seemed for several 
years that a new spirit is permeating Chapel Hill. 
Whatever the cause, the apex of the state's educa- 
tional system seems to be in charge of men who are 
making an energetic effort to make it the property of 
the people in a broader sense than has ever been the 
case before. We think that they will succeed. Men 
with the breadth of vision, the earnestness and the 
energy that these have shown usually do succeed. We 
believe that it is only a matter of a few years before 
the average North Carolinian unconsciously will 
cease referring to "the University" to say instead "our 
University." — Greensboro Daily News, Nov. 26, 


The subject for discussion at a recent meeting of 
the Thirteen Club, composed of business and pro- 
fessional men of Tarboro, was "The University 
of North Carolina: A Modern State University." 
The paper on this subject was presented by W. S. 
Howard, '97, a trustee of the University. The ex- 
tension activities, the high scholarship, and other 
things entering into the make-up of the Modern Uni- 
versity were discussed at some length. The members 
of the club, says Supt. H. B. Smith, of the city 
schools, were unanimous in their approval of the 
work which the University of North Carolina is do- 
ing for the State. 


A stimulator and a tonic in general is what the 
North Carolina Debating Union is proving for de- 
bating interests in the public schools of the State. 
With only four speakers to be chosen in each instance, 
thirteen boys are entering the preliminary contest 
for places at Bryson City; thirteen at Waynesville ; 
twenty at Winston-Salem; and practically the entire 
high school at Belmont. The superintendent at Con- 
cord says that he has no difficulty whatever in getting 
all candidates necessary for any kind of public per- 
formance, from his sixth grade up. 


The William Simpson Pharmaceutical Society is 
proving of much interest to Pharmacy students in 
the University. Meetings are held each week and 
papers are read on subjects of interest to students 
in this departmc'nt. The officers of the Society are 
President, W. W. Allen; Secretary, F. J. Fisher; 
Treasurer, J. L. Henderson. 




Last year the faculty adopted important changes 
in the Elective System of Junior and Senior years, 
which go into effect during the present session. The 
plan now in force distributes the electives over these 
general groups of study, and the only requirement 
of a Junior or a Senior in the courses leading to the 
degree of Bachelor of Arts is that he shall elect at 
least one course from each group. With the multi- 
plication of departments and courses in the last few 
years there has been an increasing loss of concentra- 
tion of study. An investigation undertaken by the 
Curriculum Committee revealed the fact tliat a ma- 
jority of Juniors and Seniors were electing courses 
in as many as eight, and sometimes nine, different 
departments. In order to encourage special study in 
at least one chosen field and at the same time to re- 
tain the wholesome distribution now in vogue, the so- 
called group system of electives was adopted. Brief- 
ly the new plan is as follows: 

All departments of study are grouped under three 
divisions: 1. Language and Literature; 2. Philoso- 
phy, Political and Social Sciences; 3. Mathematics 
and Natural Sciences. Before the close of the sopho- 
more year a student will henceforth be required to 
choose, in accordance with his taste, ability, and 
professional purposes, one department under one of 
these divisions for concentrated work. In the chosen 
department or in one closely allied with it, he will 
take a minimum of six hours or a maximum of nine 
hours in each of the two remaining years. The 
choice of the particular courses within the depart- 
ment will be made only after consultation with the 
head of the department. In addition to these six or 
nine hours, he will elect for Junior year at least one 
course in each of the other two general divisions. 
One of these two courses is to be followed in Senior 
year with a second course in the same department. 

Presidents some weeks ago. Dr. Capen has spent 
the greater part of November and December in the 
State for the purpose just mentioned. 

Only those institutions are visited and classified 
that ask for accredited relations with the State Board. 
It is gratifying to note that practically all the pres- 
idents of the higher institutions have expressed their 
cordial appreciation of the plan proposed by Dr. 
Joyner and their willingness to co-operate with him 
in this constructive effort. On his visit to the dif- 
ferent institutions Dr. Capen has been accompanied 
by Prof. N. W. Walker. 

The plan proposed by Dr. Joyner is unique in that 
it contemplates a more complete survey of higher 
education than has yet been attempted in any State. 
The Bureau of Education has made partial surveys 
in two or three other States, thoiigh in no instance 
has the survey been so comprehensive as the one pro- 
jected for North Carolina. The plan is not to limit 
the granting of credit simply to the colleges of stan- 
dard grade, as is shown by the following sentence 
taken from Dr. Joyner's letter: 

I may add that it is not my plan simply to confine 
the credits for all grades of certificates to standard 
colleges, but to grant such credits for good work in 
institutions of lower rank for certain classes of certi- 
ficates. We, of course, have in North Carolina many 
institutions doing high grade work that lay no claim 
to being standard colleges, and it is our desire to rec- 
ognize such work and to give due credit for it. 


State Superintendent Joyner has undertaken to 
classify the higher institutions of learning in North 
Carolina for the purpose of establishing a basis on 
which the State Board of Examiners may grant cred- 
it for State teachers' certificates. Dr. Joyner has 
asked the United States Bureaii of Education to as- 
sist his office in the examination and clasification of 
the higher institutions, and the Commissioner of Ed- 
ucation has detailed Dr. Samuel P. Capen, specialist 
in higher education for the Bureau, to visit the col- 
leges of this State for the purpose of looking into their 
work and classifying them as proposed in Superin- 
tendent Joj-ner's letter, which went to all the College 


Twenty-five Bible Classes meet every Sunday at 
12:30 in the dormitories and fraternity halls of 
the University. The total enrollment is over 350 
and the average attendance is over 150. Ten stu- 
dents conduct a night school for the negro working 
boys five nights in the week. These young teachers 
go out in pairs and give instruction in the ele- 
mentary subjects of arithmetic, grammar, spelling, 
history, and geography. The rural sunday schools 
which are manned by University students are very 
lai'gely attended. A good number of the boys in 
these Sunday schools have been organized into a 
corn growing clubs. The Boy Scout clubs of Chapel 
Hill and Carrlwro have plans for friendly rivalry 
in athletic and debating contests. Once a week a 
student religious meeting is held. Prof. Chase spoke 
Tuesday night on "The Power of Habit." 

Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, of the department of Eng- 
lish, has in press for early issue a collection of 

English letters. 




Carolina will debate Virginia and Johns Hop- 
kins next spring. The debates will all be held on 
neutral ground. The query has not yet been de- 
cided upon. AmO'Eg the men who will enter the

The University Glee Club gave a concert in Ger- 
rard Hall on December 3rd. The entertainment 
given by the club this season is well up to the high 
standard set by clubs in previous years. A sched- 
ule is being arranged for trips to various cities in 
the state 'by J. L. Pritchett, business manager of 
the club. P. H. Epps is director. 

The club is giving concerts in Kinston on the 11th 
and New Bern on the 12th while Thf. Eeviiow

Acting upon the call of Prof A. Vermont, formerly 
of the University and now Superintendent of Schools 
at Smithfield, the city of Raleigh held special meet- 
ings on Sunday, JSTovember 22nd, for the purpose 
of raising funds for the stricken Belgians. As the re- 
sult of the campaign more than $1,800 was raised. 

Subscriptions taken at Chapel Hill through Drs. 
H. M. Wagstaff and Oliver Towles amounted to 
$164.25, which was sent forward to J. P. Morgan 
& Co., on November 24th. 


Under the above heading, F. P. Graham, '09, and 
Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., contributes a most 
readable article to the December number of the Uni- 
versity Magazine.. The "immortals" of various 'Var- 
sities from the beginning of the game back in 1SS8 
down to date figure in the "rambles", and the 
stories of their achievements as presented in the ar- 
ticle are of special interest to the alumni who have 
followed closely the varying fortunes of the game at 
the Hill. 


A student branch of the American Institute of 
Electrical Engineers has been organized in the Uni- 
versity. The branch starts with thirty members, all 
of them students in the electrical engineering de- 

partment. Prof. P. H. Daggett is chairman of the 
section and Mr. J. W. Mclver is secretary. Meetings 
will be held every month. The programs will consist 
of original papers and discussions. 


Class basketball is under full swing in the old Com- 
mons Hall. C. F. Benbow, a graduate student and 
former Guilford star, has the class teams in charge. 
He is ineligible for the 'Varsity and will give all his 
athletic interest to the development of the class teams. 
Coach Doak is rounding the 'Varsity squad into 
shape. The 'Varsity men again out for the team 
are Captain Mebane Long, Homewood, and Tennent. 
Tandy, centre, is in the infirmary with the scarlet

The Stanly County Alumni of the University held a 
meeting on the evening of November 13th in the rooms of 
the Albemarle Club at Albemarle. W. L. Mann, '06, presided 
over the meeting, and Prof. E. C. Branson, of the University 
faculty was the principal speaker. 

Mr. Branson pointed out the strategic importance of every 
alumnus at this time when the University is so anxious to 
expand and to render a real service to every community and 
to every person in North Carolina. 

The Stanly alumni were enthusiastic in their response 
and in their plans for co-operation with the University's 
work in Stanly County. Further meetings will be held 
during the course of the year. 


Brimming full of the spirit of progress which character- 
izes the work of the University, and expressive of a con- 
stant loyalty to alma mater, was the banquet of the alumni of 
the University of North Carolina, here attending the Teachers' 
Assembly, which was held in the Masonic Hall from 6 until 
8 o'clock yesterday evening. Prof. M. C. S. Noble, dean of 
the School of Education of the University, acted as toast- 
master. In his characteristic manner he carried off the oc- 
casion humorously and well. Present for the banquet were 
many alumni who are known all over North Carolina as lead- 
ers in the educational life of the State. 

Toasts were responded to by Messrs. J. B. Robertson, sup- 
erintendent of the Alamance County schools ; T. Wingate 
Andrews, superintendent of the Reidsville schools ; Joe S. 
Wray, superintendent of the Gastonia schools ; Harry Howell, 
head of the Asheville schools ; Horace Sisk, of the High 
Point schools ; and W. H. Pittman, superintendent of the 
Edgecombe County schools. Among others who spoke was 
Mr. E. C. Branson, professor of rural economics and socio- 
logy in the University. 

In saying that the alumni of the University of North 
Carolina were "nearer to their alma mater and to one an- 
other than the alumni of any other institution of which he had 
any knowledge," Mr. Harry Howell voiced the spirit of 
brotherhood which existed throughout the gathering. 

The alumni were strong in their approval of the adminis- 
tration of President E. K. Graham and of the extension 
work of the University including its High School Debating 
Union which has already enrolled 200 schools for a great 
debate next Spring. The University was given a God speed 
in its plans for a State-wide ministry of service, extending 
to every community, and to every person in North Carolina. 
The banquet was closed with the singing of "Hark the 
Sound," the familiar song of University men. 

Forty-seven alumni were present. They were : Messrs. 
M. C. S. Noble, N. W. Walker, Harry Howell, W. H. Pitt- 
man, Horace Sisk, J. B. Robertson, Joe S. Wray, T. Wingate

is alone worth the price of admission. Mr. Noble's special- 
ties are pedagogy and North Carolina history, and in the

riment of the Assembly may be expected from him from 
time to time. "Billy Noble," as the University boys affec- 
tionately term him, occupies a peculiar niche in the State's
