i ooo mark point tn a higher institution ot 

learning within its borders which 
had enrolled an even L,000 members. The Univer- 
sity, through its president, expressed its gratifica- 
tion on reaching this point in its history, and the 
press of the State featured the announcement as a 
matter of genuine pride to the whole people. 

The mid-winter meeting of the Board of Trustees 
to which the announcement of the attainment of the 
L,000 mark was made was the 125th of that body. 
After one hundred and twenty-five years of planning 
and labor, the State University is training 1,000 stu- 
dents to send them back into the State to do its ser- 



At the Annual Inter-Society Banquet held at Com- 
mencement in 1914, Chief Justice Walter Clark, the 
NUMBER principal speaker of the evening, 

SHOULD BE took the position that the enroll- 

5 » 000 ment nf the University of a great 

State like North Carolina, should be verging on 
5,000 instead of L,000 and that in so far as the Uni- 
versity and the State singly or jointly had failed 
to make the number 5,000, to that extent they were 
seriously at fault and had fallen short of their high 
privilege. In support of his position, he cited the 
fact that the states of the North and East had their 
Harvard and Yale and Brown and Columbia and 
Cornell and Princeton and Pennsylvania, and that 
Michigan, Wisconsin, .Minnesota. Kansas. Illinois, 
Texas, and California, though qo1 so old by a half 
or even a fourth as North Carolina, had out-distanced 
North Carolina by far in the number of students 
enrolled in their universities, a position which finds 
convincing substantiation in Science for December 
25, 1914, in which statistics of attendance at thirty 
universities of the country are given. In this tabu- 
lation. Columbia tops the list with a total of Ll,294. 
The I diversity of Texas, only 32 years old at its last 
birthday, stands 16th in the table with a total of 
3,371, while Carolina fails to qualify at all on the 
basis of attendance. And that loo after a history of 
practically a century and a quarter!

WHY NOT ., , c , , , ... , . n rr\ 

5 000 ? tor the States upbuilding? I tit: 

Review does not propose to at- 
tempt an answer to these questions nor to explain the 
causes which have retarded so long the attainment 
of the present enrollment. It will, however, make 
mention of several facts which it considers signifi- 
cant. One of these, as shown in the January issue, 
is that North Carolina is one of a very, very small 
number of states which charge resident students tu- 
ition in their state universities. The bearing of this 
fact upon attendance is at once obvious. Again, the 
first appropriation made to the University for main- 
tenance — $5,000 — was not granted until 1881, or 
34 years ago, and 90 years after the institution was 
founded. Furthermore, of the 25 buildings now on 
the campus, the first to be built by the State out of 
funds from the State treasury, was the present chemi- 
cal laboratory which was erected in 1905 at a cost 
of $50,000. And from a statement contained in the 
president's report for 1913-'14 of the total amount 
of the $1,137,500 plant which the University now 
comprises, only $341,500 has been contributed direct- 
ly by the State for permanent improvements and 

Two further causes have been contributory to this 
end. Until 1907 no provision had been made for a 
system of State supported high schools, ami it was 
only in 1913 that a compulsory school law was placed 
upon the Stale's statute hooks. 


In his address before the General Assembly on the 

15th of January by chance the very day on which 

the University over which lie for 
WOULD , ... .... 

IT PAY 7 merly presided enrolled its one 

thousandth student — Presidenl 
Alderman made the statement that where the Slate 
was spending one dollar I'm- education it oughl by all 
means to lie spending three. And this is but another 

way of saying that North Carolin ieds, and ueeds 

tremendously, not merely L,000 men under training 
in the bighesl branch of its general educational sys- 
tem, hut that from the rural elementary school up 




through the high schools and normal schools and 
through the University, it needs more than anything 
else to be training the youth of the State in increasing- 
ly large numbers and in the most effective way for 
the great task of upbuilding and uplifting North 

That the University has achieved this much, that 
it is now training so many men for service to the 
State, that the State is devoting more and more of its 
thought and revenue to all phases of education, that 
it is attempting to give the sort of training to every 
one within its borders which will make for better 
living and a higher civilization — this is cause for 
rejoicing. That other chapters in the history of the 
University and in the universal education of North 
Carolina may be speedily written, is The Review's 
earnest hope. 

□ □□ 

The Eeview wishes to record two notable utter- 
ances recently made in the State both of which grew 
out of the consideration of North 
Carolina's educational develop- 
ment. One was made in the course 
of an impromptu address by Governor T. J. Jarvis, 
of Greenville. The occasion was the celebration of 
his 79th birthday, on January 18th, by the Eastern 
Carolina Training School and friends invited in to 
do him honor. Five young ladies of the senior class 
had reviewed by decades the Governor's public ser- 
vice for the fifty years 1865-1915. The review was 
of a touching, personal sort, calling to mind the deep 
currents of the Governor's life. In responding he 
said: "I can truthfully say that in all my public life 
I have always set the good of the boys and girls of the 
State before my own personal or political welfare." 

To illustrate what he meant, he cited two recom- 
mendations which he made while Governor, the con- 
sequences of which numbers of his friends predicted 
would bring about his utter political undoing. In his 
message to the Legislature in 1885 he recommend- 
ed appropriations to the amount of $20,000 for the 
support of the University and an increase in the gen- 
eral school tax of the State. The advocacy of these 
measures, he was told, would lead to political sui- 
cide, and in both incidents he replied that if serving 
the youth of North Carolina should send him into 
his political grave he would gladly descend into it ! 
This resolute, forward looking position taken by 
North Carolina's "Grand Old Man" in January, 
1885 — 30 years ago — was the one event in his long, 
splendid career in which in retrospect he- found his 
chief pride. 



Attention has already been drawn to the address 
in which the second utterance was made. It was in 
the concluding paragraphs of Dr. 
Alderman's speech to the guard- 
ians of the people "back home." 
It ran thus: "I am told that Leg- 
islatures spend a great deal of time repealing enact- 
ments of former Legislatures. Be sure of this thing. 
Legislatures never repeal great educational enact- 
ments, and they never go backward in true education- 
al progress. A vote in that field is a vote for civili- 
zation and progress. It is more than a vote. It is a 
deed, and not only enriches the memory and heart 
of him who gives it, but enrolls him, whether he will 
or not, among the builders of a State. Such spend- 
ing, of course, is not expenditure, but investment, 
not loss but gain, not waste but accumulation." 


On Wednesday, February 3rd, President Graham, 
with Messrs. Walter Murphy, R. D. W. Connor, A. 
H. Price, and W. P. Bynum, Jr., 
members of the Board of Trus- 
tees, appeared before the joint 
Committee on Appropriations of 
the Senate and House and presented the cause of the 
University for the years 1915 and 1916. The speci- 
fic requests, which were carefully explained in a clear 
cut statement by President Graham, were: (1) An 
increase in the annual maintenance fund from the 
present amount, $95,000, to $125,000; and (2) An 
increase in the annual permanent improvement fund 
from $50,000 to $60,000. 

It is unnecessary for The Review to particularize 
as to the special needs of the University which make 
these increases imperative. An increase of 25 per 
cent in the student body in the last two years, the 
growth of the Summer School, the development of 
the Bureau of Extension, not to mention growth 
along the whole line of University activities, easily 
account for the imperative need for the increased 
annual maintenance fund asked for if the standard 
of efficiency which the LTversity has previously main- 
tained is to continue to prevail. 

Again, so far as permanent improvements are con- 
cerned, the need is equally pressing. At present the 
University owes $12,000 on the recent buildings it 
has put. up because it is impossible these days to erect 
and equip a building commensurate with present Uni- 
versity needs for the amount heretofore appropriated 
— $50,000. Furthermore, in recent years the Uni- 
versity has been forced to purchase land for Univer- 
sity purposes, the purchase price of which, $40,000, 



has not been paid and is drawing interest which has 
to be met with money taken out of current funds. 
This item alone, in the biennium 1913-'14, amounted 
according to the report of the Board of Internal Im- 
provements, to more than $6,000. The indebtedness 
on this score at present is $40,000, the properties 
having been acquired being the University Inn, the 
Old Central Hotel, where the New Dormitories now 
stand, and the field adjoining the old Commons, on 
which Peabody Hall is located. 

For many years the power plant of the University 
has been piling up a constantly increasing load. It 
is now doing service for over 1,000 students, supply- 
ing them with light, heat, and water. In a sense it 
is the physical heart of the University, and upon it 
the University is absolutely dependent. As the load 
has increased the boilers have become old and strained 
and, according to the report of the Board of Internal 
Improvements to the Governor, the University will 
do exceedingly well if it is not forced to suspend op- 
eration on account of serious accident to the plant 

during the present year. To re-equip the plant will 
cost $30,000. 

Here, then, without considering the matter of re- 
pairs to the 25 buildings now on the campus, or the 
necessity of increased apparatus, furnishings, etc., 
for the enlarged student body, both for winter and 
summer terms, is an absolute, imperative need for 
$82,000 of the $120,000 asked. 

Whether or not the University shall receive this is 
a matter of vital concern. It is a matter which should 
enlist the interest and support of every alumnus. 
A practical way of showing this interest and support 
is by taking the matter up with your senator and rep- 
resentative and urging that the necessary appropria- 
tions be given. Frequently alumni express a desire 
to help the University if there was only a way. The 
way is open. 

And here again, for the Legislature, is an oppor- 
tunity for economical and productive investment, 
rather than expenditure! 


Over 300 Students Annually Support Themselves Wholly or in Part, While 1100 Have 
Been Assisted in Recent Years Through University Loan Funds 

Whether cotton sells at 6 or 10 or 15 cents a 
pound, one of the persistent questions which con- 
fronts hundreds of boys throughout North Carolina 
who have finished their high school course and con- 
template going to college is, "How am I to secure 
the funds necessary to maintain me during my four 
years within college walls ?" Tuition, room rent, 
board, registration fees have to be met, books have 
to be bought, and other necessary expenses have to be 
arranged for. A definite amount of money has to be 
provided if the undertaking is to be properly financ- 
ed and the student sent on the course of his college 

How this question is being solved at the Univer- 
sity is now being made a matter of special record by 
the Self-Help and Swain Hall Committees with a 
view to working out a definite plan whereby a com- 
plete record of all students who aid themselves may 
be carefully kept, and that a permanent self-help 
bureau may hereafter he regularly maintained. 


Facts gathered from the committees during the fall 
of 1014 and from a carefully prepared thesis on the 
subject of student self-support published in the Uni- 
versity Record of August, 1908, show the means 
employed by students at the University in solving 
the financial problems of their college career and the 

amount of money which they receive for their work. 
Possibly the item of board is the largest single ex- 
pense that has to be provided for. This is met in 
various ways. One of the most obvious and most gen- 
erally employed, is by waiting on tables either in the 
University dining room or in the village boarding 
houses. During the nine months' term of 1913-'14, 
a total of 35 students employed at the University Inn 
and Swain Hall earned a total of $3,789 or an aver- 
age of $108 each. During the Summer School of 
1914, 52 students at Swain Hall earned a total of 
$1,125, or an average of slightly over $21 for the six 
weeks. When the Fall term of 1914-'15 opened, 110 
applicants — one student out of every nine then on the 
Hill — appeared before the Swain Hall committee 
seeking positions as waiters in that one special build- 
ing. Of these 52 were given employment, 40 as 
waiters, 8 as dishwashers, 2 as silver washers, and 
2 as glass washers. While the remaining 58 could 
not be employed at Swain Hall, positions were sought 
for them elsewhere in the community and practically 
all were placed in such a way as to enable them to 
earn at least part of their board. 


Many of the students make part of their expenses 
by acting as agents for out-of-town clothing houses. 
In this way a number of men make enough to pay 



practically all of their expenses. In addition to these 
are agents for life insurance companies, laundries, 
houses dealing in college, fraternity, and class em- 
blems, pennants, pins, etc. The men who secure 
positions on the picture and cap and gown committees 
of the senior class act as agents for the college pho- 
tographer and supplier of costumes for commence- 
ment and receive good commissions for all the sales 
or rentals made. 


Stenographers and typewriters among the student 
body are always sure of steady, and comparatively 
profitable employment. During the present year all 
the stenographic work of the University is done by 
students except in the offices of the Assistant Direc- 
tor of the Bureau of Extension and the Director of 
the Summer School, and in these offices students' as- 
sistance is frequently required. In addition to this, 
several members of the faculty employ student steno- 
graphers, and many of the publications issued by the 
professors pass through the hands of student type- 
writers. In recent years the two volumes of Dr. 
Battle's History of the University, Dr. Raper's 
Wealth and Welfare and Railroad Transportation, 
the Yacli-ety Yack, and many briefer articles have 
thus found their way to the publishers. 


Students in the advanced classes who have achieved 
distinction in their studies are regularly employed 
as assistants in the various laboratories of the Uni- 
versity. I luring 1913-14 this number was 21. The 
distribution by departments was as follows: Anatomy 
1, Botany 1. Chemistry 5, Electrical Engineering 1, 
English 1, Geology 1, Histology 1, Library 5, Phar- 
macology 1, Surveying 1, Physics 3, Gymnasium 2. 
The number for the present year has been increased 
to 10 in the department of Chemistry though the 
total earnings of the 1<> are no greater than they ori- 
ginally were for the 5. They are simply distributed 
among more students. 


Until 1912, the University Press regularly em- 
ployed from Pi to 12 students as printers. Since 
1912, tli- Press has ceased to be mulct' student 
management and as the University has placed the 
bulk of its publications with publishing houses off 
the Hill only 3 or 4 students have found regular 
employment as typesetters. This number, however, 
finds employment, and in addition other students 
act as correspondents for the various daily papers of 
i he State. By charging a regular rate per .column for 
matter furnished, a considerable income is received 
from tin's source. 


The latest compilation of self-help statistics avail- 
able are these of 1907-'08 when the student body 
numbered 788. The number partly or wholly self- 
supporting has increased annually and now runs well 
over the 300 mark, or one third of the entire enroll- 
ment. The following table indicates the character of 
the work engaged in, the number of men employed, 
and the sums earned in 1907-'08.

The above statements and statistics relate solely 
to work done during the college year. It does not 
include the work engaged in during the long vacation 
in the Summer or the Christmas holidays — both of 
which yield considerable income. Every year scores 
of students act as salesmen of special wares, join sur- 
veying camps, farm, assist in making out county tux 

I ks, report for local papers, clerk in hotels, sell 

insurance, etc., and make a large part of the money 
required for the following year. One student has 
practically maintained himself for the past three 
years by work as a binder in the University library 
(luring the winter terms and Summer and not less 
than twenty-five students spent the few days of their 
recent holidays behind counters in their home towns. 




Fortunately, the University has been able to aid 
a number of these men when their funds have become 
exhausted. This has been possible by means of two 
loan funds — the Deems Fund and the Martin Fund. 
The former was established in 1879 and after being- 
added to by a gift of $10,000 by William H. Van- 
derbilt, in 1881, and increased by interest accumu- 
lations, on August 14, 1014. amounted to $35,226.46. 
The later was established in 190T-'0S representing 
an endowment of $7,200, the income from which 
amounted to $3,325.97 in August, 1914. In the 

case of the Deems fund, students may borrow up to 
a limit of $200 at 6 per cent, their notes being pay- 
able at the end of 2 years. Both principal and in- 
terest may be loaned and notes may be renewed. 
Only the income from the Martin fund can be loaned 
and notes are made at four per cent interest for only 
one year, subject to renewal. Every year from 
$5,000 to $6,000 is available from these sources for 
loan purposes and during the 35 years in which the 
University has had a loan fund more than 1,100 stu- 
dents have received assistance. The exact number 
at the end of the fiscal year of 1913 was 1,023. 


Plans for This Event in Which Distinguished Visitors From the Whole Country 
Will Participate Are Well Under Way 

April 21 is the date chosen by the Faculty for 
the Inauguration of President Graham. The com- 
mittee to whom the arrangements have been entrust- 
ed have been busy with the program for the last three 
months. Their plans promise to make the occasion 
one of the most notable academic gatherings that has 
ever been brought together within the borders of the 
State, and to provide exercises of the very highest 
intellectual order. 

Although the program is not yet in its final form, 
still it is already far enough advanced to make it 
possible to give a more or less definite idea of what 
guests the University will have the honor to enter- 
tain and of what speeches she will be privileged to 
hear at that time. 

The exercises will begin in the forenoon with the 
academic procession in costume. In the line of 
march will be the delegates from other institutions 
and from the various learned societies, the trustees, 
the faculty, the alumni, and the students of the Uni- 
versity. In Memorial Hall Governor Craig will pre- 
side. Addresses will lie delivered by President Low- 
ell of Harvard University, President Goodnow of 
Johns Hopkins University, President Alderman of 
the University of Virginia, and President Finlay of 
the University of New York. The presentation of the 
keys of the University to the new president will be 
followed by the inaugural address. Greetings will 
be delivered by President Martin of Davidson Col- 
lege on behalf of the institutions of the State, and by 
representatives from the faculty and alumni. 

At the conclusion of the morning exercises the 
University will entertain the visiting delegates at a 
luncheon in Swain Hall. A most interesting feature 
of the program will be the after dinner speeches by 

the distinguished guests. This informal, more or less 
extemporaneous, interchange of ideas on the part of 
prominent educators from all sections of the country 
will undoubtedly prove one of the most inspiring 
events of the day. Probably at no time in the past 
has it been the good fortune of the University to en- 
joy such an intellectual treat as is planned for this 

In the evening the University will entertain her 
guests at a reception in the Library. 

The invitations to the various institutions and 
societies to be represented by delegates were issued 
about two weeks ago. Little more than a third of the 
replies have come in at the present writing, but the 
cordial spirit of those that have arrived is a source 
of very genuine happiness to us all. It is already 
quite. clear that all colleges and universities which 
are not prevented by great distance or by some spe- 
cial demand of a particularly busy season are doing 
us the great honor of sending representatives to bring 
their good wishes for the further success of the old 

It is, of course, impossible to give here a complete 
list of those which have already accepted within the 
brief time that the invitations have been out. But 
the alumni will be interested to know who some, at 
least, of the distinguished visitors are whom it will 
he their privilege to meet next April. 

Among the college presidents who expect to be here 
in person are all those in our own State, with the ex- 
ception so far as is known at present, of only one. 
From outside the State will come President Alderman 
of the University of Virginia, President Goodnow 
of Johns Hopkins University, President Lowell of 



Harvard University, President Finlay of New York 
University, President James of the University of 
Illinois, President Hamerschlag of Carnegie Poly- 
technic Institute, President Lovett of Eice Institute, 
President Moore of Union Theological Seminary, 
President Matheson of the Georgia School of Tech- 
nology, President Murphree of the University of 
Florida, President Smith of Washington and Lee 
University, President Johnson of Winthrop Normal 
College, President Stevenson of Princeton Theologi- 
cal Seminary, President Soule of Georgia College of 
Agriculture, President Webb of Randolph-Macon 
Woman's College, President Graham of Hampden- 

Besides these, which will be represented by their 
presidents, the following institutions have signified 
their intention of sending delegates : Leland Stanford 
Unversity, Baylor University, Smith College, Colum- 
bia University, University of Missouri, Stevens In- 

stitute of Technology, Vanderbilt University, Trini- 
ty College (Conn.), Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology, University of Pittsburg, Teachers College of 
New York, Haverford College, Wofford College, 
Purdue University, Bryn Mawr College, U. S. Mili- 
tary Academy, Medical College of South Carolina, 
Mt. Holyoke College, Rutgers College, University 
of Alabama, St. Johns College, University of Ar- 
kansas, George Washington University. 

The learned societies which so far have replied 
that they will be represented are : American Bar 
Association, American Folk-Lore Society, American 
Forestry Association, American Institute of Mining 
Engineers, American Mathematical Society, Ameri- 
can Society of Civil Engineers, American Society of 
Experimental Biology, Archaelogical Institute of 
America, Illuminating Engineering Society, Geologi- 
cal Society of America. 


School in Which 6,069 Teachers Have Received Normal Training Plans for a 
Splendid Session June 15-July 30 

The preliminary announcement of the Twenty- 
eighth session of the University Summer School was 
sent out by Director Walker on January 22nd. The 
session will begin June 15th and continue for a 
period of six weeks, exclusive of registration and 
examination periods, closing July 30th. The days 
for registration will be June 15th and 16th. While 
the school is in session the entire plant of the Uni- 
versity including Library, Gymnasium, Laboratories, 
etc., will be placed at the disposal of the student 
body with a view to increasing the efficiency of the 
teachers of the State. 


In arranging the courses the following beneficiaries 
have been kept in mind: 1. Teachers of primary 
and grammar grades ; 2. High school teachers and 
principals; 3. Teachers of special subjects; 4. 
county and city superintendents and supervisors; 
5. Candidates for admission to college who wish to 
make up deficiencies in entrance requirements; 6. 
Teachers who plan to take the State examinations; 
7. College and University students who desire to earn 
extra credit towards the A. B. degree ; 8. Students, 
teachers, and others wishing to pursue courses lead- 
ing to the A. B. and A. M. degrees 


Instruction will be offered in the following sub- 

jects: English, History, Mathematics, Latin, Greek, 
French, German, Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Geo- 
logy, Geography, Agriculture, Rural Economics and 
Sociology, Nature Study, School Gardening, Library 
Science, Education, (including Primary Methods, 
Grammar School Methods, Class Management, Sec- 
ondary Education, Educational Psychology and Con- 
structive School Supervision), Drawing and Pen- 
manship, Public School Music, Plays and Games, and 


Every effort will be made to keep necessary ex- 
penses low. The University will put directly back 
into operating expenses every dollar received for any 
purpose from the students of the Summer School, 
and $2,000 more. It does this in order to keep the 
quality of the service high and the necessary expen- 
ses low. The total expenses, including registration 
fees, room in college, table board at Swain Hall, for 
the entire session, need not exceed $30. 


A feature which has added greatly to the pleasure 
and usefulness of the Summer School is recent years 
has been that of special lectures and conferences in 
which the services of distinguished visitors and spec- 
ialists have been employed. Plans for the approach- 
ing session include a number of such events among 



-which are to be mentioned the conferences on Rural 
Life, the High School, and the conference of Super- 
intendents and Supervisors. 


As the School has grown in recent years, interest 
has increased in the special public exercises partici- 
pated in by the student body. During the approach- 
ing session musical and dramatic entertainments will 
be provided and opportunity will be given for parti- 
cipation in choruses, plays, and other forms of en- 
tertainment and recreation. 


The old "Summer Normal" at the University was 
a pioneer in the summer school field. It was estab- 
lished in 1877 by Dr. Kemp P. Battle, and it seems 
to have been the first of its kind in America. It ran 
for eight years, and enrolled 2,480 teachers and stu- 
dents. It suspended in 18 Si. Eevived in 1894, the 
Summer School ran eleven years during its second 
period of usefulness until 1904 when it was again 
suspended. During this period 1,541 teachers and stu- 
dents were enrolled. It was revived again in 1907. 
The following table shows the growth in attendance 
during the third period: 1907, 36; 1908, 53; 1909, 
76; 1910, 99; 1911, 225; 1912, 463; 1913, 500; 
1914, 596; Total, 1907-1914, 2,048. The School's 
growth in efficiency has more than kept pace with its 
growth in numbers. 


The mid-year meeting of the Board of Trustees 
of the University, at which the reports of President 
Graham and other University officers were reviewed, 
was held in the Governor's office in Raleigh on Tues- 
day. January 26. 

The fact that the registration for the year had 
gone above 1,000 was matter of special note. All 
sections of the State were shown to be represented 
in the student body, and from whatever point consid- 
ered it was evident that the University was reaching 
the entire State in an increasingly helpful way. 

Matters other than those brought out in the re- 
ports were acted upon as follows : 


Tn connection with the announcement of the desire 
of classmates of Bishop Robert Strange to place a 
memorial tablet in Memorial Hall it was voted that 
the University should place the memorial of Bishop 
Strange in the Hall. 

A gift of the late Sol. Weil of $1,000 the interest 
to be devoted to a memorial, and the gift of a death 

mask of Charles D. Mclver by Sculptor Ruckstuhl, 
were reported. 

The amount which the Board will ask for the 
annual maintenance of the University was placed at 
$125,000, instead of $95,000, the amount now re- 


The following were elected members of the Exe- 
cutive Committee for the next three years: Claudius 
Dockery, John W. Graham, J. Bryan Grimes, J. Y. 
Joyner, Walter Murphy. With the exception of 
Mr. Murphy these were all re-elections. Mr. Mur- 
phy was elected to take the place of Major E. J. 
Hale, who is out of the country serving as minister 
to Costa Rica. 

The following members were present : 
Governor Craig, chairman; Dr. Edward K. Gra- 
ham, president of the University; R. D. W. Connor, 
secretary; Col. J. Bryan Grimes, C. W. Worth, 
Thos. H. Battle, Col. Benehan Cameron, Wm. Reid 
Dalton, J. E. Swain, P. J. Long, Zeb V. Walser, J. 
K'eiivon Wilson, W. X. Everett, Walter Murphy, 
P.rof. F. P. Eobgood, E. R. Wooten, M. J. Hawkins, 
Jas. A. Gray, Jr., James D. Proctor, R. A. Dough- 
ton, Fred. J. Coxe, Charles C. Loughlin, Haywood 
Parker, Judge J. S. Manning, Dr. Charles Lee Smith, 
James M. Carson, Robert S. Hutchison, Charles 
Whedbee, Dr. Richard H. Lewis, John A. Parker, 
Col. A. B. Andrews, Dr. J. Y. Joyner, John Lamb,

London, Judge A. W. Graham, Maj. L. T. Hartsell, 
E. A. Abernethy, Judge W. P. Bynuni and Victor 
S. Bryant. 


The faculty of the University recently voted that 
the School of Education should be allowed to confer a 
new degree to be entitled the degree of Bachelor of 
Arts in Education. In order to obtain this degree a 
student must have passed through a curriculum 
which, in its main features, is as follows: 

I hiring the Freshman year he pursues the required 
work for anyone of the three regular A. B. courses 
with the exception that the hour a week now devoted 
to Public Speaking must be devoted to the study 
of a few of the simpler educational problems in a 
course of lectures conducted by the different mem 
bers of the faculty of the School of Education. 

Tn the Sophomore year three hours is devoted to 
the study of Education and twelve to fifteen hours 
to the usual academic subjects ; the course still closely 
parallels the usual A. B. courses. The course in 
Education for this year deals especially with the 



problems which arise in connection with the elemen- 
tary schools, in order to meet the needs of a large 
number of men, who at the end of their sophomore 
year, leave college and teach in the rural schools of 
the State. 

During Junior and Senior years the student de- 
votes eight to nine hours to the study of Education 
and the same amount of time to academic subjects. 
The work in Education during these last two years 
consists, for the most part, of required courses, but 
provision is made for elective work enough to satisfy 
different classes of men. The required subjects are: 
Educational Psychology, High School Organization 
and Administration, Rural Administration and Su- 
pervision, Observation work with discussion of the 
principles involved, School Supervision. 

The course and the degree have been made neces- 
sary by the increasing demand for professionally 
trained teachers. The main part of the student's 
time will of course be given still to his ecademic 
work; it is only in the last two years of the course 
that the time given to his technical training will de- 
mand a full half of his attention. 

It is the earnest hope of the School of Education 
that it will be able by this means to meet a growing 
need for professional training without sacrificing the 
broad background of liberal culture which character- 
izes the Bachelor's degree in Arts. 


The McNair lectures for 1914-'15, the eighth in the 
series, were delivered in Gerard Hall February 5, 
6, and 7, by Dr. John Dewey, professor of Philoso- 
phy at Columbia University. The general theme of 
the three lectures was Philosophy and Politics, the 
subject, matter centering in the main around the 
philosophy of Germany of today and the political 
life of that people. 

In his first lecture, "The Inner and Outer Worlds," 
Dr. Dewey explained various theories held by 
thinkers concerning the effect produced by systems 
of philosophy on contemporary life. This, according 
to certain schools, he said was held to be negligible. 
Personally he inclined to the more generally accepted 
view that what a nation thinks profoundly affects its 
action and he chose Germany as the country which 
furnished the best example of the operation of that 
theory. This he did for the further reasons that 
''philosophy is more in the blood of the German peo- 
ple than anybody else" and that at present, wide pub- 
licity has been given to their philosophy as an out- 
growth of the European War. Luther and Kant 
stood out as the two great figures in German thought 

up to 1830. Luther contended for freedom of the 
soul in the higher realm, and obedience to law in 
the outer world. Kant was a dreaming mystic on 
the one hand — in the inner world — and a practical 
man of action on the other in the outer world. Be- 
cause of this dual nature of philosophy, the Germans 
had worked out a system of thought yielding them 
freedom of spirit in the inner man while admitting 
of subordination and obedience to detail and govern- 
mental control in the outer man. As a result of this 
thinking, the German people could believe themselves 
to be the possessors of the highest spiritual ideals and 
the people peculiarly commissioned to transmit those 
ideals to the rest of mankind, and at the same time 
harmonize that thought with a life of absolute obe- 
dience to law and military authority. 

In the second and third lectures, Dr. Dewey elab- 
orated this fundamental idea, as modified by the 
philosophy of Fichte and Hegel, in its relation to 
the conception of the State and History. His spe- 
cial subjects being respectively "The Philosophy of 
the State" and "The Philosophy of History." The 
entire series was of a very high order and has stimu- 
lated thinking throughout the entire college commun- 
ity. The lectures will appear later in book form. 


The North Carolina Club, once an organization 
devoted to social purposes, is hard at work un- 
earthing extremely interesting facts about North 
Carolina. At its last meeting in January it dis- 
cussed, in the form of a debate, the question of a 
State-wide dog tax — the same question at that time 
being up for debate in the General Assembly. 

The affirmative argued that a dog is either a lux- 
ury or an economic necessity ; if the former, he ought 
to be taxed ; if the latter, he can bear the tax. On the 
other hand if he is worthless, he is a nuisance to 
the State and a tax is the logical solution. 

If there is to be a tax it must be State-wide be- 
cause the county tax is a failure. Of the twenty 
counties that have a dog tax law, Wake county with 
$515 receives the highest revenue and Onslow with 
$1 receives the lowest returns. On the other hand 
Virginia has adopted the State system after the fail- 
ure of the county system and turns over $90,000 an- 
nually to the schools of the State after paying for all 
killed sheep and the cost of collecting the tax. With 
a similar law South Carolina gets $60,000, Rhode 
Island $30,000, and Indiana $104,000. 

With an estimated dog supply of 150,000 and an 
assumed tax of 50 cents per dog, the State could 



figure on turning over $60,000 a year to the public 

One of the affirmative speakers closed his speech 
with the following: 

"A yellow cur dog is symbolic of the economic 
lassitude of North Carolina." 

The negative argued that if the county system was 
a failure so would the State system be a failure. 
The tax would fall on the poor man who is already 
disproportionately taxed. In the opinion of the neg- 
ative the people do not want the tax . 


The National Convention of Sigrna Upsilon, liter- 
ary fraternity among college men of America, was 
entertained by the Odd Number Chapter of the Uni- 
versity at its annual meeting Monday and Tuesday 
January 4 and 5. A welcoming smoker was given 
the visitors Monday night. Business sessions were 
held Tuesday morning and afternoon and Tuesday 
night a banquet for thirty was held. 

Dr. A. A. Kerns, professor of English at Millsaps 
College Mississippi and president of Sigma Upsilon 
for the last five years, presided at the meetings. Of 
the fifteen chapters in the fraternity, six were rep- 
resented at the convention. 

Chapter reports were made as follows: S. P. John- 
son for Calumet, Vanderbilt; Horatio Lapsley for 
Osiris, Eandolph-Macon ; R, P. Bassett for Senior 
Round Table, Georgia; B. W. Barnard for Fort- 
nightly, Trinity ; Prof. Kern for Kit Kat, Millsaps ; 
and George W. Entsler for Odd Number, North Caro- 
lina. Proxy reports were made for Boar's Head, 
Transylvania, Kentucky; Scarabs, University of 
Texas; Attic, University of Alabama; Grub Street, 
University of Washington, at Seattle. 

Officers were elcted as follows: President, Dr. R. 
E. Park, University of Georgia; Secretary, F. P. 
Graham, of North Carolina; Historian, R. B. Mars- 
ton, of Randolph-Macon ; Treasurer, George L. Car- 
rington, of North Carolina. 


. The basketball season opened with two defeats at 
the hands of the dexterous Durham Y. M. C. A. 
team, 22 to 14 and 44 to 25. In the third game Caro- 
lina won in a fast and close game 25 to 24. These 
three games made up the pre-season schedule, the 
holidays breaking in on the 20th. Long, Loughran, 
Flol'lin:;'. Fuller. Davis, Homewood, Andrews, and 
Ton unit constituted the personnel of the team in 
these opening games. 

Tin- college season opened January 11th in a 

victory over Elon 15 to 9. A change had been 
made in the lineup through the eligibility of John- 
son and the recovery of Tandy from scarlet fever. 
The quint was composed of Long and Johnson, for- 
wards, Tandy, centre, and Andrews and Tennent, 
guards. The same team lost to Wake Forest in the 
Raleigh auditorium 26 to 23. The Raleigh papers 
pronounced this game one of the fastest and prettiest 
ever played in Raleigh. The weeks trip through 
Virginia begins on the 15th of February including 
games with Roanoke College, Washington and Lee, 
V. M. I., Lynchburg Y. M. C. A., and Virginia 

Mebane Long, '15, is captain, Allen Mebane, '15, 
is manager, Doak, of Guilford, is head Coach, and

The athletic management of the University, in 
session Monday night, February 1, elected Charles 
G. Doak, of Guilford College and at present coach of 
the University basketball team, coach of the baseball 
squad for 1915. 

Mr. Doak comes to his present work backed by a 
record of many years of splendid athletic service. 
For five years he was a player on the basketball and 
baseball teams of Guilford College, for three years 
he successfully coached Guilford teams in these two 
branches of athletics, and for the past seven years 
he has been a player in the Greensboro and Charlotte 
clubs of the Carolina League. 


Baseball practice was delayed on account of wet 
grounds. A few men have been warming up in dry 
intervals. Seven varsity men are in college : Captain 
Woodall, catcher; Marshall Williams, Ben Aycock, 
and Leon Shields, pitchers ; Patterson and Hardison, 
first base; Lewis, third base; and Bailey, outfield. 
When the coach makes his call for candidates a whole 
legion of men will answer on the field. Several of 
these have already shown varsity class. 


Football Monograms were awarded to the follow- 
ing members of the 1914 team. Bridgers, Beid, 
Wright, Gay, and Burnett. Stars were awarded to 
Homewood, Tayloe, Ramsey, Cowell, Jones, Foust, 
Tandy, Winston, Parker, Allen, and Fuller. All of 
these men will be back next fall with the exception 
of Fuller and Winston. Fuller, who graduates this 
June, will go into business immediately. Winston 
will begin the practice of law this winter. Metz of 
Tennessee and Townsend of Greensboro, both good 
athletes, have entered the professional schools but are 
not eligible for the spring athletics.

dent of the Athletic Association. 


Of the twenty-four applicants from the University 
Law School who took the recent Supreme Court ex- 
amination for license to practice law, twenty-four

Dr. E. A. Alderman, former president of the Uni- 
versity, spent Friday, January 15 th, in Ealeigh as 
the special guest of Governor Locke Craig and the 
General Assembly of the State. He was attended on 
this his first trip "back home" after his return to 
Charlottesville by Mrs. Alderman, wbo, with him, 
participated in the brilliant reception given by Gov- 
ernor and Mrs. Craig on the evening of the 15th. 

In his address before the General Assembly, in 
which he reviewed the achievement of a number of 
North Carolina's educational statesmen, and pointed 
out the task which confronted the leaders of the pres- 
ent generation, he spoke as follows concerning the 
need of greater expenditures for general education 
and support of the University: 


If I may be pardoned for speaking by the ledger, 
you must spend three times the amount now expended 
if you are to have public schools adequately for a free 
and progressive people. Upon your great State Uni- 
versity, thrilling with growth and reaching out, in a 
way to excite admiration everywhere, after finer 
adaptation to public needs, and upon all of your in- 
stitutions working to provide leadership and citizen- 
ship, you must also spend three times what you now 

spend, if they are to realize their true destiny. I 
believe the impulse of the average man in North 
Carolina to send his son to college is stronger than, 
in any Southern State except Texas, but the colleges 
need many elementary things with which to give the 
proper training to this oncoming host. It was the 
ambition of my life, when I had the honor to serve as 
President of the University of North Carolina, to see 
the whole people behind that University continually 
strengthening it with their sympathy, their pride, 
and their practical helpfulness, for I knew that the 
whole people will react only to life and power in in- 


Such is my ambition now for the University of 
Virginia, which it is my duty and high privlege to 
serve. I know that those who have directed and 
who now direct the life of the University of North 
Carolina are actuated intensely by a similar 
ambition. No University in America has accom- 
plished more, with the means available, than 
your University during the past fifteen years 
under President Venable, and today, under the lead- 
ership of its new President, Edward K. Graham, 
who knows his task like a veteran and who deserves 
your fullest confidence and your united support. The 
future is very bright. The way, therefore, to evoke 
the interest and love of the whole people in such an 
institution as a University, or any institution of 
learning, is to give that University or institution 
power to become tremendously vital in all phases of 
the people's life. I pray you will begin edging up in 
this matter of increased expenditure, this very ses- 
sion, for Virginia has no idea of letting you get ahead 
of her, and so we will all move up a peg or two to- 



I am told that Legislatures spend a great deal of 
time repealing enactments of former Legislatures. 
Be sure of this thing. Legislatures never repeal 
great educational enactments, and they never go 
backward in true, educational progress. A vote in 
that field is a vote for civilization and progress. It 
is more than a vote. It is a deed, and not only en- 
riches the memory and heart of him who gives it, 
but enrolls him, whether he will or not, among the 
builders of a State. Such spending, of course, is not 
expenditure but investment, not loss but gain, not 
waste but accumulation. 

Some time 'ago the State University at Chapel 
Hill inaugurated a weekly "news letter service." 



The matter comes in printed form and occupies about 
seven columns of space. The bulletin is brimfull of 
the livest kind of news; news in which the public is 
interested, not high-sounding discussion of dry 

This news letter is invaluable to the newspapers, 
for it carries a world of information which is care- 
fully prepared. 

This is what we think of the service. Just how 
this opinion is endorsed by outsiders is best told by 
a paper in far-away Illinois. The Decatur Herald, 
of Decatur, 111., has this to say in praise of the ser- 
vice, in comparison with that supplied by Illinois : 

"Badly printed and none too carefully edited, the 
University of North Carolina News Letter is never- 
the less an inspiration. We wish we could say as 
much for the Press Bulletin, that eminently respec- 
table and somewhat dry publication that comes regu- 
larly to our desk. 

"The News Letter is frankly a newspaper. It is 
concerned with agricultural and educational progress 
in every part of the state. The fact that a boy i:i 
Orange county grew 97 1-4 bushels of oats upon his 
acre at a cost of 28 cents a bushel is not so incon- 
sequential as to escape notice. 

"Counties that establish new tax districts are com- 
mended, and the employment of more teachers in a 
country school is praised. Farmers are soundly re- 
proved for increasing their cotton acreage and are 
bluntly told they are headed the wrong way. Wake 
county farmers are reminded that the bread, meat, 
corn and hay consumed in their community was 
so much ahead of what they raised that the cotton 
and tobacco crops fell short a million dollars of pay- 
ing the bill for improved supplies. 

"So it goes. News, real news, accompanied by 
snappy editorial comment, is collected and put into 
every home in the state without charge. The curri- 
culum of the school itself is not mentioned. There is 
nothing about university athletics, ceramics or engi- 

"The purpose of the North Carolina Neivs Letter 
appears to be to bring about the social and financial 
elevation of the people of the state ; that of the Illi- 
nois Press Bulletin, too, on the other hand is to keep 
before the people the fact that they have an excellent 
educational plant and a number of exceedingly alert 
professors. We prefer the North Carolina idea. It 
is the projection of the university purpose rather than 
the university itself." — Charlotte News.

Southmont, Jan. 28. — As a result of a bulletin of 
the University Extension Bureau telling of the high- 
grade work done by Catawba County farmers in im- 
proving their land, the breeding of better stock, hogs, 
and fowls and in marketing their products, farmers 
of this section of Davidson County have selected 15 
of their number to go to Catawba and see what has 
been done and to get a line on the methods employed. 
Davidson farmers, not the most backward in the 
State as proved by the county's wheat and corn yields, 
are willing to be shown how to become more effective. 

Having made their visit and taken notes on all de- 
partments of farming as conducted in Catawba 
County, the delegation will return home and report 
to a convention to assemble at Southmont on the third 
Saturday in February. — Charlotte Observer. 


In an extended article in the January number of 
the South Atlantic Quarterly, Dr. C. L. Raper, of 
the department of Economics, makes a thorough an- 
alysis of the present system of taxation in vogue in 
North Carolina, and suggests ways and means whore- 
by the glaring defects of the present system may be 
remedied. The chief iniquity of the present system 
Dr. Raper finds to be that of unequal and conse- 
quently inequitable assessment. To correct this he 
proposes the appointment by the Governor of a well 
paid tax commission with competent county asses- 
sors in whose hands the whole matter of proper as- 
sessment and equalization will rest.

Joint meetings of Alumni and students during the Christ- 
mas holidays are becoming popular over the State. Inci- 
dentally, these meetings are mighty good things and should 
be held in every community possible. They serve to draw 
closer together the young men and the older ones, all sons 
of the University. A feature at some of these meetings has 
been the presence of the high school boys who are seniors 
in the county schools as guests. At Goldsboro, Gastonia, 
Hendersonville and Lenoir this plan has been notably success- 
ful. The high school boys, who are even then thinking of 
where they shall attend college the following year, thus have 
a glimpse at the spirit of the University, which otherwise they 
could not obtain. Eight meetings were held during the 
last Christmas holidays. 


The Sampson county alumni and students of the Univer- 
sity held a banquet at the Montague Hotel, Clinton, Tuesday- 
evening, December 29th. Theodore Partrick, Jr., '13, editor 
of the Sampson ^Democrat, presided over the meeting as 
toastmaster The principal address of the evening was made 
by Major George E. Butler, '91, of the Clinton bar. The 
meeting was one of the most enjoyable yet held in Clinton, 
and has served as a stimulus to University interests in Samp- 
son County. 


Thirteen loyal sons of the University gathered at Juna- 
luska Inn, Franklin, on the evening of January 1st, the oc- 
casion being the annual banquet of the Macon county alumni 
association. The festive board was decorated skillfully, and 
the Carolina colors were in evidence. 

After the banquet had been served, officers were elected for 
the ensuing year: President, S. H. Lyle, Jr., '08; Secretary. R. 
D. Sisk, '95 ; Treasurer, S. L. Franks, '06. At the conclusion 
of the meeting, the Carolina men went in a body to the local 
picture show. This concluded an evening which had been 
filled with enjoyment for all. 


The Gaston County alumni and students of the University 
held their annual banquet at the Colonial Hotel, Gastonia, 
on the evening of December 30th. A. G. Mangum, '93, called 
the meeting to order as president and extended a welcome 
to all present. John G. Carpenter, '04, was toastmaster for 
the occasion. 

The principal speakers were Dr. A. H. Patterson and Dr. 
Louis R. Wilson, of the University faculty. Dr. Patterson 
talked in simple terms of what the University is and what 
it stands for, telling of its rank among the high-grade insti- 
tutions of the country and of its internal soundness. Dr. 
Wilson showed interesting figures concerning the University's 

finances and pointed out the necessity for much more liberal 
appropriations from the State. 

Others who made talks were G. W. Wilson, Dr. T. C. 
Quickel, R. C. Patrick, Joe Nixon, and G. B. Mason. Officers 
elected for the ensuing year were: President, G. B. Mason, 
'13, of Gastonia; Vice-President, E. A. Thompson, '11, of 
Mt. Holly; Secretary, E. R. Rankin, '13, of Chapel Hill. 

The attendance was 51, as follows: Alumni 19, students II, 
visitors 4, high school boys 17. 


The annual banquet of the Wayne County alumni and stu- 
dents of the University was held in Goldsboro on the even- 
ing of December 29th. Thomas O'Berry, '07, president of 
the alumni association, was toastmaster. The Carolina men 
of Wayne are numerous and active, and this gathering was 
quite a success. 

The principal addresses were made by Professors E. C. 
Branson and M. H. Stacy, of the University faculty. 

Talks were also made by Rev. N. H. D. Wilson, '86; W. 
A. Dees, '11; Matt H. Allen, '06; and others. A number of 
high school boys were present as guests. 

The alumni took a most praiseworthy step in deciding to 
establish a scholarship at the University to be awarded some 
Wayne County boy each year, and to make a loan this spring 
to one Wayne County boy now a student in the University 
who otherwise would have heen compelled to leave college. 

W. F. Taylor, '11, a lawyer of Goldsboro, is secretary of 
the Wayne county alumni association. 


A joint meeting of the Henderson county club of the Uni- 
versity and the high school seniors of Henderson county was 
held in the high school building at Hendersonville during 
the holidays. W. T. Crane, '18, spoke in behalf of the county 
club. The meeting, which was largely of a social nature, was 
a thoroughly enjoyable one. 


The Lenoir county alumni association of the University 
held its annual banquet in the Pythian Club rooms at Kinston 
on the evening of December 29th. The students of the Uni- 
versity from Lenoir county were guests of the alumni at the 
banquet. E. B. Lewis, '98, was toastmaster. 

President G. V. Cowper, '01, of the association, welcomed 
the students and principal speaker of the occasion, Victor S. 
Bryant, '90, of Durham. He made an appeal to the students 
to put forth their best efforts towards acquiring culture and 
other higher things more important than mere worldly suc- 
cess. R. T. Allen, '14, a student in the University law 
school, spoke of the conditions on the Hill now and of the 
progressiveness which characterizes everything connected 
with the University. 

Mr. Bryant spoke for half an hour and held the closest at- 
tention of the banqueters. His subject was "The University 
and Its Problems." One pressing need, he said, was for 
more dormitories at the University. He compared the Uni- 
versity of today with the University of twenty years ago and 
made altogether a most interesting address. 

The number present at the banquet was 40. 


The Caldwell County students of the University entertain- 
ed the Caldwell County alumni in the rooms of the city board 
of trade at Lenoir, on the evening of December 28th. This 
meeting was remarkable in several respects. It was the first 



one of its kind ever held in Caldwell county. There was pres- 
ent a man who had been a student at the University during 
the Civil War, in the person of Capt. Edmund Jones. Another 
feature was the presence of L. E. Corpening, who was a mem- 
ber of the first football team ever put out by the University. 
Archie Kent, '16, was toastmaster for the occasion. Ad- 
dresses were made by J. G. Abernethy, Phar., '08; Edmund 
Jones, '68; J. T. Pritchett, '14; Dr. A. A. Kent, '81; and 
Eugene Jones, '17. 

The attendance was 23, as follows: Alumni 9, students 9, 
high school boys 5. 


The Harnett County alumni of the University held a most 
enjoyable banquet at Lillington during the holidays, and per- 
fected the organization of a county alumni association. 

The officers elected were : President, J. R. Baggett, '00, 
of Lillington; Secretary, George Elliott, '13, of Linden; 
Treasurer, H. T. Spears, '79, of Lillington. The principal ad- 
dresses at the banquet was made by Prof. Collier Cobb, of 
the University faculty, and W. H. Bagley, '00, of Raleigh, 
business manager of the News and Observer.
