THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Volume III 



MARCH, 1915 



Number 6 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



The University Campus was gripped in a very 

sane and powerful way by the Mott meetings. These 

meetings were not a three-day emo- 

w^-r-^V tional revival but were a matter of 

MEETINGS . , 

months ot preparation and are now 

a matter of months conservation. A large proportion 

of the student body were actively forward-looking to 

the coming of Mr. Mott and a larger number are 

now permanently tied up with religious interests, 

Jiihle Study, mission courses, and social service. 

Seventeen men are at work in the negro night school 

and Sunday Schools. Sixteen other men are engaged 

in the club work and newly organized night school 

in the mill community. SixTy-five men were in the 

rural Sunday School work, February 28, teaching 

classes, leading the singing and organizing new 

schools. Increased enrollments have been made for 

the spring study courses: "The New Era in Asia" 

under Mr. Thornton of the English department ; 

"The Christian Equipment of War," Dr. H. W. 

Starr; "Present Forces in Xegro Progress,"' Prof. 

E. ('. Branson; "The Challenge of the Country." 

Rev. W. D. Moss; and "Christian Standards in 

Life" in the dormitory discussion groups.

While Dr. Mott made a powerful impression on 
the student body, he was in turn deeply impressed 

by the University and its student 
AS DR. MOTT , , T • 1 ■ , • , 

body. In an interview which ap- 
peared in the Charlotte Observer 
upon his leaving Chapel Hill, he made comments 
which will be interesting to all University alumni 
ami which are significant in view of the fact that 
I)r. Mott has been on the inside of college life in 
every nation of the earth. Below are fragments of 
the ( Charlotte interview : 

"In its spirit of democracy, your University is the 
equal id' any college or university in the United States 
or in the world, and in fact in this respect it is 
superior to mosl ot' them. When you consider how 
indispensable this spirit of democracy is to the life 
of your Stale ami to the Nation, yon will realize 
what a fine thing it is that your future leaders are 
being trained up in an atmosphere of this kind." 

Dr. Mott was told that the statement is occasionally 
made that the University is not a religious place. 
"There are four things which make it impossible 



for the charge you mentioned to be sustained. Nine- 
ty per cent of the students are church members. The 
faculty is composed of Christian gentlemen. The 
Churches of the village are earnestly at work among 
the students. The Y. M. C. A. of the students them- 
selves is a splendidly managed organization. My 
observation convinces me that there is a deep and de- 
vout religious feeling throughout the student body. 
I have conducted meetings similar to the meetings 
just held in almost all universities on this continent. 
Xever have I seen a greater proportion of the student 
body constantly in attendance. Xever have I seen a 
greater proportion make decisions for Christ." 

DDD 

The season for the high school deflates is again 
on. The date for the State-wide discussion of the 
ship subsidy question is March 26th, 
at which time an even thousand stu-

DEBATES 



dents, representing two hundred and 
titty schools located in ninety counties, will partici- 
pate in the debate. The finals will be held at Chapel 
II ill on April 9th. As in previous years, the debaters 
who come to the University will be entertained hy 
the student body and the faculty. 

The remarkable growth of the Debating Union 
from ninety schools in 1913 to two hundred and fifty 
in 1915 emphasizes the need, on the part of the 
alumni in the communities in which the local debates 
are held, to see to it that they are properly officered 
ami that everything connected with the local contests 
goes off well. The task of looking after this is too 
great for the Secretary at the University, and the 
hearty co-operation of the alumni is absolutely essen- 
tial if the event is to be carried through as it should 
lie. Tin- occasion iiives the local alumni a splendid 
opportunity to play the part of host and The Re- 
view is sure that they will take advantage of it. 

DDD 
In 1914, county commencements were held in 

forty-one North Carolina imunities and during 

the coming April plans are being 
made for the holding of similar 
meetings in an even greater number 
of counties. 

While these commencements are primarily con- 
cerned with the elementary schools of the counties, it 
is the privilege of the University to interest itself in

them and aid in their development in every way pos- 
sible. To this end it is suggesting to the county clubs 
organized at the University and to the local alumni 
associations that they co-operate with the directors 
of the commencements in making them truly success- 
ful. Attendance at the University entails a distinct 
obligation in matters of public welfare on the man 
who has been a student at the Hill. The Review 
has no definite suggestion to make as to how this 
obligation in this particular instance may be met. 
The offer of a prize for some event in the commence- 
ment under the name "The University of North 

Carolina Prize in " or a brief, clear cut 

statement about the value of a high school and col- 
legiate education might well be worth while. The 
real point is: develop some idea and put it through 
effectively.

While the General Assembly at Raleigh was con- 
sidering the State Highway Commission bill, the 
second Good Roads Institute was 

!t°°!l*°* DS being held at the University under 
INSTITUTE 

the auspices of the department of 

Civil and Highway Engineering and the North Caro- 
lina Geological and Economic Survey. In this Insti- 
tute, which brought together a total of eighty visitors, 
not including the local members and the students in 
the highway engineering classes of the University, 
many problems involved in the construction of roads 
were thoroughly discussed. Expert opinion, illus- 
trations from roads built, and all the resources of the 
Geological Survey and the University department 
were in evidence, and the meeting lasting throughout 
four days gave impetus to the work of road construc- 
tion in North Carolina. From every point of view 
the meeting was successful and its continuation for 
next year was recommended. 

□ □□ 
Plans for the inauguration of President Graham 
on April 21st are going rapidly forward and at this 
date it is apparent that the event 
is to be one of the most distinctive 
in the history of the University. 
More than a hundred representatives of the leading 
colleges and universities and learned societies of 
the nation have indicated their intention of being 
in attendance and the program of exercises contains 
the names of a group of unusually distinguished 
educators. 

Quite naturally the event is to be made an occa- 
sion of home-coming for many of the alumni. If 
you have not planned to be present, read the an- 
nouncements appearing in this and the February is-

have a part in the event.

In no one way can the alumni give the University 

greater support than in the one particular of putting 

it in touch with new students and in 

r/-»o < Die mc helping it retain students who have

Review suggests to the local alumni that they inform 
the University of any prospective students in their 
localities and that they give such publicity to the 
Summer School of 1915 and the regular term of 
1915-'16 as will bring the University to the favorable 
notice of their communities. In extending its ser- 
vice to the State, the alumni can in this way greatly 
aid their alma mater. 



ALUMNI INVITATIONS TO THE INAUGURATION 

One hundred institutions have signified their in- 
tention of sending delegates to the Inauguration of 
President Graham in April. Since the last issue of 
The Review a number of names has been added to 
the list of college presidents who will honor us with 
their presence. 

To the list of speakers is to be added the name 
of Mr. George Stephens of Charlotte. He will de- 
liver the greetings to the new president on behalf 
of the alumni. Mr. T. C. Boushall, of Raleigh, a 
member of ithe present Senior Class, will speak in 
behalf of the students of the University. 

In a few days invitations will be issued to the 
alumni. An earnest effort is being made to have 
this invitation list as complete as possible. But one 
of the crying needs of the University is an alumni 
catalogue, and 'necessarily the list will fall far short 
of completeness. The Review assures the alumni, 
however, that the University extends a most cordial 
invitation to all her sons and daughters to be present 
at President Graham's Inauguration, and that if a 
card fails to reach each one, the failure is due only 
'to the lack of an alumni catalogue. 

The Inaugural luncheon will take place at 2 P. M. 
in Swain Hall. There all University men and wo- 
men will be hosts in the entertainment of their dis- 
tinguished visitors. The price of a reservation at 
the luncheon will be one dollar a plate. The commit- 
tee expects four or five hundred alumni to be present 
at the luncheon. The Review therefore urges all 
who desire places reserved to send in notice to that 
effect, together with the check for the necessary 
amount (made payable to J. A. Warren, Treasurer), 
as soon as possible. Such communications should be 
addressed to Prof. George Howe. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
THE MOTT MEETINGS 



149 



John R. Mott, Leaders in American Student Movements, Alumni, and Student Workers, Conduct a 
Powerful Campaign for Christian Thinking and Living 



The Mott meetings, which were held at the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina, February 12-14, were 
remarkable in their revelation of spiritual power. 
In preparation for the coming of Mr. Mott, prayer 
groups of earnest men were meeting daily for 
many days over the University, in all the dormi- 
tories, in some of the fraternity halls, and in 
other groups whose interests centered in certain 
Association activities. J. M. Parker of the Junior 
Class came back from the Penn State meetings 
running over with ideas and spirit to be trans- 
lated into the local situation. Over a hundred men 
had some definite responsibility in connection 
with the meetings ranging from acting as secretaries 
of the score of leaders to raising windows for fresh 
air during an intermediate song. 

Into this atmosphere of serious-hearted prepara- 
tion and prayerful aspiration, Mr. Mott and his 
associates came with their great messages on sin, 
God, the reality of Christ as a fighting power for 
purity, and the great value of the will in making a 
clear cut decision to pay what it costs to be a sincere 
follower of Jesus Christ. Barnsaur, Legate, Brock- 
man, Starr, Somerville, Smith, Bond thaler, Patten, 
Starr, H. W., Moss, Sotckton, Tillett, Bowe, Harris, 
Hall, Winslow, and others of the delegates and alum- 
ni were all over the campus, reinforcing Mr. Mott 
and multiplying the points of contact with the spirit 
of the campaign in a deeply personal way. Gilbert 
Beaver fairly radiated spirituality in his quiet and 
friendly way. Culver and Epps put the religion of 
life into the songs. Francis Miller in his face and life 
told the story of Christ straight to the heart of 
many men with transforming power. 

Practically the entire student body was in con- 
stant attendance upon the five addresses. The mass 
of eager faces as they leaned forward to the mes- 
sages was inspirational in its appeal to the speaker. 
Against this tremendous pull, however, Mr. Mott 
absolutely stripped his thought and his voice of all 
sentiment and feeling; there were no conscious over- 
tones in the Mott meetings. He talked straight to the 
reason and won the enduring faith of not only the 
student body and faculty but also of the alumni 
wliii had left their law, business, and college offices 
to take part in the campaign. Four hundred men — 
virtually half of the students actually present in col- 
lege — signed or have since signed the decision cards. 
Bible study, mission study, and the religious meet 



ings have been reinvigorated. The rural Sunday 
Schools and community work, the boys' clubs, the 
negro night school, and all other forms of social ser- 
vice have been crowded with volunteer workers. A 
night school has been organized in the mill com- 
munity. Two hundred persistenlt. volunteers are 
eager to do some sort of active service. Last Sunday 
after all the regular Sunday Schools in the neigh- 
boring country were manned to the limit, a call was 
made for pioneering in an unoccupied field. Thirty- 
three men responded on the hour appointed and 
walked out five miles to a school house and from this 
as a centre covered the entire community within a 
radius of three miles. Next Sunday a large Sunday 
School will be organized in this school house. The 
past week three students joined the Methodist Church 
and the other churches will receive new members this 
week. The follow-up work in all its forms is finding 
the interest very durable ; and the end is not yet. 

The Mott campaign was a campaign of friendship. 
Men in the University of North Carolina are sound- 
ing new depths of friendliness and finding vital re- 
sources of character-power in an awakened friend- 
ship with the spirit and ideals of Christ. 

PERSONAL INTERVIEWS 

In conducting the campaign, no simple feature was 
more stressed than that of the personal interviews 
given by Mr. Mott and his co-workers. These 
were given by the following workers on the subjects 
indicated: John R. Mott, Cornell — Life Problems; 
Gilbert Beaver, Penn State — Prayer; W. W. Brock- 
man, Virginia — Undergraduate Life; R. B. Culver, 
McMinnville — Missions; J. Harris, A. and M. —

secretaries in arranging for the interviews in 
the rooms in the Y. M. C. A. 'building, dormitories, 
and fraternity buildings as follows : J. M. Parker, 
T. C. Boushall, Hubert Smith, Frank Marsh, E. L.

J. N. Wilson, Wm. Steele, Ealph Stockton, and Far- 
rar Parker. 

A DAILY SCHEDULE 

Like the Blue Eidge conferences and the Quadren- 
nial Student Volunteer Conventions, every moment 
of the day during the Mott meetings was put to 
definite service. The schedule for Saturday, Febru- 
ary 13, was typical : 7 :45 A. M. — Union meeting of 
leaders, delegates, prayer groups ; 8 :40-9 :25 — Con- 
ference of leaders and delegates; '.> :45-l ^ :00 — In- 
terviews; 12:00 — Address in Memorial Hall by Mr. 
Mott; 2:30-5:30 P. M.— Interviews ; 7:30-8:30— 
Address by Mr. Mott in Gerrard Hall; 8:30-9:15— 
Conferences in dormitories and faternity halls ; 8 :45- 
11 :00 — Interviews. 

IN RETROSPECT 

Among the outside men who took an active part in 
the Mott meetings were three members of the Inter- 
national Committee of the Young Men's Christian 
Association, Mott, Legate, and Miller; one commit- 
tee chairman of the World's Christian Student Fed- 
eration, Beaver ; one travelling secretary of the Stu- 
dent Volunteer Movement, Ramsaur ; two general 
secretaries of the Y. M. C. A., Brockman of Virginia, 
and Hall of the City Asssciation at Raleigh ; one col- 
lege president, Eondthalcr of Salem College; one 
college professor, Starr of Salem ; three lawyers, Til- 
lett, Stockton, and Winslow ; three association lead- 
ers, Somerville of Davidson, Eowe of Wake Forest, 
and Harris of the A. & M. College. A number 
of other alumni were present among whom were 
Boushall of Raleigh, Woodall of Dunn, and Pritchett 
of Kinston. Twenty-odd delegates were present from 
the colleges of the State. 

Hoke Ramsaur, '10, travelling secretary of the Stu- 
dent Volunteer Movement, was an almost indispensa- 
ble part of the Mott meetings. He made a jump from 
the colleges of New England, cutting short his sched- 
ule there in order to be a co-worker with Mr. Mott 
among the men of his alma mater. Hoke's seretarv 
was crowded by men desiring interviews on .spiritual, 
moral, and life-work problems. 

President Howard Bondthalcr held two large con- 



ferences of the fraternity men and was especially 

helpful in his personal interviews. 

The Mott meetings were not limited to Carolina in 
their influence. More than a score of delegates from 
the State colleges and several representatives from 
Southern universities were present to have a part in 
the occasion and take its messages back for radiation 
from many centres. 

Fred McCall '15, carried through a most thorough 
and extensive publicity plan in preparation for the 
coming of Mr. Mott. In addition to the posters, 
dodgers, and bulletin signs, personal notice was 
given to every man in college except a few who were 
in the infirmary. 

A large canvas banner with an artistic hand-printed 
sign was stretched across the path at the north en- 
trance to the campus and a large electric sign flashed 
intermittently during the late evening the signifi- 
cant word "M O T T." 

Eoger McDuffie, Pharmacy '15, was a little Na- 
poleon in handling his large corps of ushers, card 
passers and minute window raisers. He directed this 
important work quietly and with dispatch. 

Of the 1<I,(I00 cards printed in connection with the 
Mott meetings, the Morning Watch Cards with 
prayer thoughts from Phillip Brooks and E. I. Bos- 
worth Were the most helpful in striking a spiritual 
note. 

Mr. Mott conducted his great campaign for higher 
living among college men at what he considered three 
of the most stategic centres in the country, Penn 
State in the East, Kansas in the West, and Carolina 
in the South. The alumni of the University have a 
responsibility in conserving and spreading the influ- 
ence of the Mott meetings. 

It is contrary to the spirit of Mr. Mott to stir the 
surface of a man's emotions and then let him drop. 
The impressions will endure for their sanity and are 
being gathered up in a permanent way by a program 
of conservation which calls into renewed activity all 
the twenty departments of the Young Men's Chris- 
tian Association. 

The value of the Mott campaign is instanced in the 
individual decisions of men to absolutely cut with 
things which were marring their lives and robbing 
them of power. The more general value is in the 
deeper spiritual tone, wide as the campus. Several 
of the morning watch groups continue to meet daily. 
Other groups meet every night with the purpose of 
keeping alive the Christ vision of friendliness and 
service. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
LOCAL FRATERNITIES AT THE UNIVERSITY IN 1861 



151 



Leroy S. Boyd Contributes an Interesting Chapter on Their Early History at Carolina 



Leroy S. Boyd, 604 Harvard St., N. W., Wash- 
ington, during the past three months has carried on 
a vigorous search for information concerning various 
fraternities of the period immediately preceding the 
Civil War. One in which he has been particularly 
interested is what is known as the old Kappa Alpha. 
Information concerning it is as follows and may be 
of interest to many University men. 

KAPPA ALPHA 

This fraternity was founded at the University in 
1859. On the chapter roll were the University of 
North Carolina, the University of South Carolina, 
Furman University, Louisiana Centenary College, 
and Emory and Henry College. Its secrets were 
revealed in New York State in 1866 by a disloyal 
member and soon after, on account of this, it dis- 
banded and the members joined the now defunct or- 
der of Phi Mu Omikron. The motto was "Kuklos 
Adelphon." 

PHI MU OMIKKON 

Phi Mu Omikron was founded at the University 
in 1858 with the following chapter roll: University 
of South Carolina, Wofford College, Emory and 
Henry College, Charleston College, and Emory and 
Newberry College. Its badge was a monogram. In 
1866 it absorbed the Kappa Alpha fraternity founded 
at the University in 1859. In 1S79 a union was 
formed by Phi Mu Omikron with Kappa Sigma, the 
latter taking over the membership of the former or- 
ganization. The only known member of the old Kap- 
pa Alpha was the late Captain Fred N. Nash, of 
Charlotte, whose death occurred in the month of 
February, 1915. 

From an autograph album which belonged to Wm. 
C. Michie, '61, of Bastrop, Louisiana, the following 
information has been secured concerning other fra- 
ternities and their membership at the University in 
1861.

ONE THOUSAND DEBATERS TO SPEAK ON 
MARCH 26 

On Friday, March 26th, one thousand boys and 
girls in different communities of North Carolina will 
do battle on the query: "Resolved, That the United 
States should adopt the policy of subsidizing its 
merchant marine engaged in foreign trade." The 
occasion is the annual State-wide triangular contest 
of the High School Debating Union. 

Two hundred and fifty schools representing ninety 
counties of the State now have their earnest attention 
and effort centered on the triangular debates. All 
of the schools winning both of their debates will send 
their teams to Chapel Hill on April 9th to compete 
in the final contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup. 
This Cup is the trophy which the inter-collegiate 
debaters of the University have provided for the 
school which wins out finally. It was won in 1913 
by the Pleasant Garden High School and in 1914 
by the Winston-Salem High School. 

The question to be discussed by the high school stu- 
dents this year is one of much timeliness and interest. 
At present only 8.9 per cent of American shipping 
is carried under the American flag. The young de- 
haters in their eager search for truth and vantage 
ground will thoroughly thresh out the subsidy as a 
means of building Tip the marine. These debates will 
have a wonderfully instructive effect upon the 50.000 
or more North Carolinians who will make up the 
total audiences. 

As a part of the State University's machinery for 
extending its scope and helpfulness to every section of 
North Carolina, the High School Debating Union 
takes front rank. It is safe to say that this series of 
debates will be the largest in size and most far-reach- 
ing in influence of all debate series to be held in the 
various States of the Union this year. 

Since its inauguration two years ago, the growth of 
the Debating Union has exceeded the hopes of its 
most sanguine supporters. In 1913, the first year of 
its existence, there were ninety schools enrolled, with 
a total of 360 debaters. In 1914, the enrollment of 
schools was 150, with a total of 600 debaters. In 



1915, the enrollment of schools is 250, with a total 
of one thousand debaters. 

The final contest of the Debating Union at Chapel 
Hill is one of the biggest and most interesting events 
of the entire college year. The high school debaters 
together with teachers, principals, and superintend- 
ents from all over North Carolina journey to the 
University and pay a visit. The University students 
and faculty members give them a hearty welcome 
and endeavor to show them a genuinely good time 
during their stay on the Hill. The final debate itself 
has come to be held in Memorial Hall, so entirely too 
large are the crowds for Gerrard Hall. This year's 
final contest on April 9th seems destined to be a ree- 
ord breaker in every respect. 



WAYNE COUNTY CLUB OUTLINES PLANS 

Editor Alumni Review: 

Sir : — I have asked for this space in The Alumni 
Review to tell of the plans and activities of the 
Wayne County Club at the University, incidentally 
because I believe that the other county clubs will be 
interested in these plans and activities of ours, but 
primarily because I feel that these plans and activ- 
ities if potentially fruitful should not be limited to a 
single county. 

Our work includes the presentation of a loving cup 
to that school which wins three consecutive track 
meets at the annual county commencement. Let me 
add parenthetically that this is the third year that 
this cup has been in contest. 

In addition to this effort on the part of our Club 
to interest the boys of the county in the University, 
at some time during the Christmas holidays of each 
year the resilient Alumni and the Wayne County 
Club give a joint banquet, to which are invited two 
or three of the faculty from Chapel Hill and the 
boys of the senior classes of all the high schools of 
the county and likewise those boys who are at pre- 
paratory schools. Through this banquet the young 
men who are to be at college next year may learn the 
spirit of the University. 

A work of a more individual nature is that which, 
under the supervision of Professor Branson, we are 
to make in an intensive study of our county. Ten of 
our boys have volunteered to treat exhaustively as 
many subjects relating to Wayne County. The re- 
sult of each individual study when completed is to 
be published in the county papers, and later these re- 
sults collected and put in pamphlet form. 

A fourth activity, which if brought to fruition we 
feel will be of enormous import to the people of the 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

county, is that of the extensive organization of pig 
and poultry, corn and canning clubs. This work we 
are to do through the public schools. To this end 
we have written to the teachers of sixty-five schools 
throughout the county ; have written to Senator 
Simmons to send to each of these teachers selected 
literature on the subjects; have asked Mrs. Jane S. 
McKimmon, in charge of the girls' canning clubs 
of the Stare, ami Prof. T. E. Browne, in charge of 
the boys' corn clubs of the State, to send if possible 
one thoroughly competent man to our county to take 
the situation in hand and start the work of organiza- 
tion. We have also written to one or two farmers 
in each community and have asked them to assist the 
teachers in the work of organization, and to influ- 
ence their neighbors to take a hand in the work ; and 
at the same time we have written the teachers to 
call upon the farmers of their community, the fath- 
ers of the hoys and girls through whom they work, 
for co-operation and assistance. The county pa- 
pers we have used to make known our plans, that 
each citizen may feel himself called upon personally 
to aid in the work. 

It is our desire when such clubs have been suffi- 
ciently organized to have each Fall in Goldsboro an 
interesting and instructive exhibition of Wayne 
County pi - oducts. As an incentive to the boys and 
girls, the merchants of the town will be asked to 
give prizes to those whose exhibit is the best. 

Throughout our work we have been actuated by 
the desire to turn back into the pockets of our farm- 
ers a part of the two million dollars which Wayne 
County sends annually out of its borders for feed 
and foodstuffs. We do not expect any phenomenal 
success in our efforts to organize clubs for this pur- 
pose but even if one or two such clubs result from 
our effort we will be satisfied, but by no means con- 
tent — in fact not content until we have brought 
about the organization of a pig, a poultry, a corn 
and a canning club in every school community in 
Wayne County. 

In these, our plans, we have borne in mind a two- 
fob 1 purpose, first to help our people back home, and 
second to relate more closely and more vitally our 
people and their State institution — the University.

BASKETBALL 

A most, strenuous season in basketball was con- 
cluded by an eight-day trip through Virginia, dur- 
ing which seven consecutive games were played. 

Long, Johnson, Tandy, Davis. Andrews, Tennent, 
Holding, Keesler, Coach Doak, and Assistant-Mana- 
ger Williams took the trip. Of the seven games 
played on the trip, three were won, four lost. The 
loss of some of the games is attributable to the heavy 
schedule throughout the entire season, to which the 
eight-day trip was the climax. After the first three 
games of such a trip the team was crippled and worn 
out. 

A game of basketball is little less strenuous than 
a game of football and a schedule which fails to take 
this fact into consideration handicaps the team. 

The three games won were against Guilford Col- 
lege, 45 to 27; Roanoke College 18 to 17; S. M. A. 
28 to 18. The four lost were to Washington and 
Lee, 29 to 22; V. M. I., 28 to 24; Virginia, 43 to 26; 
Lynchburg Y. M. C. A., 63 to 20. 

The chief trouble with basketball at the Univer- 
sity is found in the fact that basketball does not be-

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



gin until football is concluded. The success of the 
season depends upon the interest and energy left 
over from the football season. The system of class 
basketball which largely developed this year will 
serve the purpose of making basketball a fall sport 
which welcomes but is not altogether dependent upon 
the winter recruits from the football field. 



TRACK 

The track men are daily in training for the spring 
meets. Five of last year's team are back on the 
course and in the field, Captain Woollcott in the 
jumps and hurdles; Homewood, pole vault; Smith, 
the 100 and 220 dashes; Patterson, the quarter; 
Whiting, the half. Besides these letter-men there 
are Harrison, Eand, Pitts, McDuffie, and Graham 
in the runs and Wright for the sprints and jumps. 
Davis for the shot and Riramer for the half are the 
most promising of the new material but Upchurch, 
Smith, York, and Webb of the freshman class, and 
Telfair, Hatcher, McKane, and Parker of the upper 
classes are all out to make good. 

Captain Woolcott, with the assistance of Collier 
Cobb, Jr., and Ralph Spence, is directing the train- 
ing of the men. The prospects are that, with a sched- 
ule of good meets, several Carolina records will be 
smashed. The team will give a good account of it- 
self in meets with South Atlantic teams. The first 
meet is with Wake Forest, April 17th, and two 
other meets will be held with two of the following, 
V. P. I., V. M. I. and W. & L. 



INTER-SCHOLASTIC TRACK MEET TO BE HELD 

Announcement has been made of the third annual 
inter-scholastic track meet of North Carolina, which 
will be held in Chapel Hill on April 16th. Any 
secondary or high school in the State is elegible to 
send representatives to this meet. It is conducted 
under the auspices of the Greater Council and the 
General Alumni Athletic Association. The winner 
of the meet in 1913 was the High Point High 
School, and the winner in 1914 was the Friendship 
High School. 



HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL CONTEST 

While The Review is in press the State high 
school championship contest in basketball is being 
conducted. The schools taking part in this contest 
in the east are Goldsboro, Raleigh, Middleburg, 
Enfield, and Benson. The contestants in the west are 
the schools of Winston-Salem, Belmont, Asheville, 
Lexington, Statesville and Matthews. The champion- 
ship game is to be played in Chapel Hill on March 
12th. 



VIRGINIA TO GET NEW MATERIAL 

The showing made on the gridiron during the past 
season, together with a formidable schedule for the 
1915 season, which includes Yale and Harvard, is 
already drawing a number of new players to the 
University, and while the season has been closed only 
a few months, word has been received from four men 
who have signified their intention of entering the 
University next fall. 

These four players were members of the Kentucky 
Military Institute the past season and have well- 
known records in the Middle West States. Ward, 
Virginia's left tackle, hails from the same school and 
was a former teammate of these new men and as 
Ward experienced no difficulty in landing a regular 
berth on the Orange and Blue eleven, this speaks 
well for the new men and should greatly strengthen 
the Virginia team for 1915. 

The players are Peck, right tackle, who weighs 
185 pounds; Park, fullback, who tips the scales at 
190; Pidgeon, an end, who weighs only 140 pounds, 
but has the reputation of being the best end in the 
Middle States. The fourth player is Stanton, who 
plays at end or tackle. Stanton is a cousin of Forest 
Stanton, who was a star performer on the University 
of Virginia football and track teams during the 1910 
and 1911 seasons. 

The quarterback position made vacant by Bobby 
Gooch will be sought for by several candidates. Be- 
sides Berkeley, who was sub-quarter the past season, 
and who received his letter, already two new candi- 
dates have sent word that they will try for the posi- 
tion. These are Ogglesby, who has been playing for 
the past two years on a West Virginia prep, school, 
and Billy Gooch, who is a brother of the famous 
Bobby. Young Gooch comes with a good record and 
those who have seen him in action state that he bids 
fair to follow in the tracks of his brother and again 
keep the name of Gooch on the list of Virginia grid- 
iron stars for the next four years. — Virginia Alumni 
Neivs. 

WORD LEAVES COLLEGE 

"Billy" Word, first baseman on the varsity nine, 
decided during the Christmas holidays to accept a 
position as instructor at the Blue Ridge Camp school 
conducted near Ivy by Mr. Warner Wood, and has 
entered upon his duties. 

Word was one of the best all-round athletes in the 
University, and his departure leaves quite a gap in 
athletic circles. He was a star member of the foot- 
ball squad, being Captain Mayer's running mate in 
the backfield during the season just closed. He was 
also a member of the track team, being a short dis- 
tance runner of ability. He was regarded as one of

the best first basemen at the University in recent 
years, and his place will be hard to fill this spring. — 
Virginia Alumni News. 



DON RICHARDSON SOCIETY ORCHESTRA 

One of the lasting and most pleasing memories of 
the commencement of 1914 is that of the music run- 
ning throughout the entire series of exercises fur- 
nished by Don Richardson, formerly of the Univer- 
sity and now of New York City. In recent years 
Richardson's work as a violinist and especially as a 
director of an orchestra in New York has been so 
distinctive that it has been made the subject of the 
following comment in the American Musician, of 
New York, of February 6th, 1915 : 

Don Richardson and his Xew York Society Or- 
chestra are doing big things the present season. This 
organization is perhaps the newest of the really well 
known musical bodies doing this particular kind of 
work here in New York City. 

Most of the other well known orchestras and their 
leaders have been in the city at least several years, 
but Don Richardson is now playing his third season. 
In this short time he and his orchestra have played 
over five hundred engagements, and engagements of 
a private nature only — this being the policy of the 
organization. The Don Richardson Orchestra 
claims the distinction in this short time of three 
seasons of playing or having played for more 
clubs than any other leader of society orchestras in 
New York City. One hundred and twelve clubs 
are regular patrons of this popular orchestra. 

The one prime secret, perhaps, one that has called 
attention to the uniqueness of the orchestra, is the 
lively spirit which each member puts into the popu- 
lar music — and Richardson has supplied at least two 
numbers on most of his programs which call forth the 
best spirit of his men. 

"Zum," an original one step, with a swing and go 
from start to finish, bringing in a famous "College 
Veil,'' which becomes contagious among all those 
who hear it, and "Athene," the new waltz, dedicated 
to the Athene Club of this city, have been unusually 
well received. Both these compositions were written 
by Richardson and held for the exclusive use of his 
orchestra, until finally he has made records of both. 
"Zum" has been published by Jos. W. Stern, and 
"Athene" has been put on the market by the Shapiro- 
Bernstein Publishing Company. 



15th to 20th, inclusive, it visited the cities of Salis- 
bury, Albemarle, Gastonia, Lenoir, Hickory and 
Greensboro. Large and enthusiastic audiences at all 
points, hospitable entertainment on the part of alum- 
ni and friends, receptions and dances, all contributed 
to the enjoyment of the club. 

Arrangements for the club were looked after in the 
different cities by alumni, under the leadership of 
Stable Linn, '07, at Salisbury; Tom DeVane, '14, at 
Albemarle; Geo. B. Mason, '13, and W. L. Wetzell, 
'09, at Gastonia ; J. G. Abernethy, '08, at Lenoir ; H. 
C. Lutz, '08, and Roy Abernethy, '06, at Hickory; 
Herman Cone, '16, and R. M. Vanstory at Greens- 
boro. The concert in Greensboro was given at the 
State Normal College. 

The concerts given were of a high order of excel- 
lence, and were productive of much applause. The 
Salisbury Evening Post, the Gastonia Gazette, and 
other newspapers made highly favorable comments 
on the work of the club. Among the star features 
were Epps' singing of "Perfect Day," Chapman's 
"All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go," and the sex- 
tette which did a burlesque on the famous "Sextette 
from Lucia." The Mandolin Club, under the leader- 
ship of Wright, and the quartet were also star feat- 
ures. Altogether the work of the Club and the suc- 
cess of the trip reflect much credit on the individual 
members and especially on Director Preston Epps 
and Business Manager J. T. Pritchett. 



GLEE CLUB TOUR ENDS SUCCESSFULLY

DR. MIMS AT VIRGINIA 

At the time Dr. F. P. Venable, of the depart- 
ment of Chemistry, was delivering lectures at the 
University of South Carolina under the provisions of 
the exchange lectureship agreement between the Uni- 
versities of Virginia, North Carolina, South Caro- 
line, and Vanderbilt University, Dr. Edwin Mims 
delivered, upon the same foundation, a series of 
lectures at Charlottesville on the subject "Literature 
as a Form of Thinking." In commenting upon the 
exchange lectureships, College Topics spoke- as fol- 
lows: 

"We are glad to see a new intellectual comrade- 
ship arising among the most representative South- 
ern Universities. Such a system as is planned will 
bring the most prominent of these Universities into 
closer contact with each other's life and thought 
than before. It is a notable tendency nowadays for 
colleges to be less sufficient unto themselves than 
they have been in the past, and by contact with one 
another to broaden their outlook and their useful- 
ness." 

Professor William Thornton,- of Virginia, will 



156 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



deliver the lectures at the University, April 26-30. 
His subjects will be: "Accelerated Methods of Analy- 
sis Applied to the Strength of Materials ;" "The Edu- 
cation which Fits the Boy to Become an Engineer ;" 
"Engineering Problems of the Panama Canal." His 
coming to the University is looked forward to with 
unusual interest. 



A WIRELESS STATION FOR THE HILL 

A radio-station has recently been added to the 
equipment of the electrical engineering department. 
The antenna, consisting of an inverted "L" of four 
phosphor bronze wires, has been installed on the top 
of the New East Building. A phosphor bronze "rat- 
tail" connects this to the receiving instruments in 
the basement of the Alumni Building 150 feet away 
where a small operating room has been partitioned off 
in one corner of the electrical lecture room. 

For the present the station will be equipped only 
for receiving wireless messages but designs are now 
being worked out for sending apparatus to be in- 
stalled next year. Most of this apparatus will be 
built in the electrical engineering laboratory by the 
students in the course in telephone and telegraph 
engineering. 

While the station will be used for practical in- 
struction in radio work as a supplement to the theo- 
retical study undertaken in this course, it has been 
built largely for use in connection with some inves- 
tigations in wireless telephony contemplated by the 
department. 

The news of the installation of the station has 
created no little excitement on the campus, and con- 
siderable interest has been stirred up among the 
technically inclined students. One night recently 
while a group of students were waiting in the operat- 
ing room to receive the 10 o'clock time signal and 
weather report from the Arlington Station at Wash- 
ington, D. C, some signals were received which in- 
dicated the presence of some small sending station 
close by. Investigation next day uncovered a small 
and very crude sending station which a would-be 
Marconi in the Freshman class had installed in the 
Smith Building. 

With the present apparatus, messages from Arling- 
ton "come in" very clearly, and no difficulty has 
been experienced in picking up the Government sta- 
tions at Key West, Fla., and the high power stations 
around New York City. When the baseball season 
starts it is expected that the operating room in Alum- 
ni will be a very popular place in the evening as 
Arlington sends out the big-league baseball scores 
each night. 



SECOND ANNUAL ROAD INSTITUTE 

The second annual Road Institute for North Caro- 
lina was held at the University February 23-27 
under the joint auspices of the department of Civil 
and Highway Engineering and the North Carolina 
Geological and Economic Survey, Dr. Joseph Hyde 
Pratt presiding. 

The total number of men attending the Institute 
was eighty, besides the students in the Engineering 
department and the members of the faculty. Thirty- 
three counties of the State were represented, and 
visitors from other States participated in the dis- 
cussions. 

Six general meetings were held at which papers 
and discussions related to the following general 
topics: (1) Location, Design, and Construction of 
Koads; (2) Sand-clay, Topsoil, and Gravel Boads; 
(3) Macadam Roads; (4) Maintenance of Roads; 
(5) Bridges and Culverts; and (6) State Highway 
Commissions and their Relation to County and Town- 
ship Road Officials. 

The social features of the Institute were a smoker 
given the delegates in Peabody Hall and on enter- 
taintainment consisting of music by the University 
Mandolin and Glee Clubs and readings by Prof. G. 
M. McKie. 



EX-PRESIDENT TAFT TO LECTURE 

As announced previously. Ex-President William 
Howard Taft, of Yale University, is to deliver a 
series of three lectures at the University in March. 
The general subject of the series will be "The 
Presidency" and the dates will be March 17, 18, 
and 19. 

President Taft has recently delivered courses of 
lectures before the University of Virginia and the 
University of Chicago. 



OFFICE TELEPHONES INSTALLED 

An inter-communicating telephone system has just 
been installed in the Alumni Building connecting 
the offices of the President, Treasurer, Business 
Manager, and Registrar. The instruments were ob- 
tained without cost in Durham, having been discard- 
ed by one of the factories there after several vain 
attempts to make them work. They were remodeled 
in the electrical engineering laboratory by Professor 
Daggett and installed under his direction. Thus far 
no trouble has been experienced in their operation 
and they should prove a great convenience in handl- 
ing business between these four offices. 



Dr. W. C. Coker will give an illustrated lecture on 
"Across Porto Rico," at Red Springs March 26th.

NEW SYSTEM OF COURSE NUMBERING ADOPTED 

At the monthly meeting of the faculty in November 
a change to take effect in the forth-coming catalogue 
was authorized whereby a new system will be em- 
ployed in the numbering of courses. Hereafter 
courses in a given department will be given two num- 
bers instead of one provided they extend through two 
terms. That is. history 1. as nuirrbered at present, 
will be history 1, 2, the odd number standing for the 
fall term and the even for the spring. In the event 
that a course extends through only one term, and is 
counted singly, it will have only one number, an odd 
number if it is given in the fall ; an even number if 
given in the spring. 

In departments such as chemistry, where a number 
of different subjects are taught, the new plan will 
operate to special advantage as it will enable the de- 
partment to arrange its courses logically according to 
subject matter. For example, the courses iu general 
chemistry may take the 'names 1, 2; 3, 4; etc., up 
to 10. The courses in organic chemistry may take the 
numbers 21 to 30 ; physical chemistry, 41 to 50. By 
skipping numbers in this way, provision can be made 
for the addition and numbering according to subject 
of any course which may be desired without disturb- 
ing the general arrangement of the courses or plac- 
ing it in the catalogue at the end of the courses pre- 
viously offered, regardless of whether or not it has 
any logical relation to the subject of the course pre- 
ceding it. 

At first the system will present the double novelty 
of courses having two numbers, and courses with usu- 
ally high numbers, as, chemistry 75, 76, for example. 
While this may seem odd at the beginning, it coin- 
cides with present day practice and will doubtless 
prove of decided advantage when put into operation. 



MCNEIL PRIZE IN HISTORY 

A new prize in the department of history of the 
University has been provided. It is a cash prize of 
$25 to go to the student in the University writing 
the best paper on Colonial and Revolutionary history 
of the sand-hills of North Carolina. Dr. J. G. de 
Roulhac Hamilton makes this announcement, and 
says the gift bears the title of the McNeil prize, the 
donor of the prize reserving his name from the pub- 
lic. This gift adds to the list of prizes offered stu- 
dents in the history department in the effort to fur- 
ther stimulate interest in North Carolina history.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 

The Papers of Archibald D. Murphey. Edited 
by W. H. Hoyt. Kaleigh : E. M. Uzzell & Co., 
1914. 

Of much interest to alumni of the University are 
the two volumes of letters and papers of Archibald 
D. Murphey which have just been published by the 
North Carolina Historical Commission. Murphey, 
who was born in 1777 and died in 1832, was a native 
of Caswell county. He entered the University in 
1796 and after graduation in 1799 was tutor for 
one year and professor of languages for one year. 

He resigned in 1801 to commence the study of 
law and was admitted to practice in all the courts in 
1802. He advanced rapidly to the top rank in his 
profession and in 1818 was elected a judge of the 
Superior Court, in which capacity he served for two 
years, resigning at the end of that time to resume 
the practice of law which he found much more con- 
genial. He was a most successful teacher of law and 
was also the editor of three volumes of North Caro- 
lina reports. 

Murphey's greatest service to the State was render- 
ed as a legislator. He was a member of the state 
senate from 1812 to 1818 and during that period he 
was the progressive leader of the State. He is best 
known for his services in the cause of internal im- 



provements and in the cause of education. His re- 
ports on these two subjects are classic and prove 
conclusively his title to statemanship of a high order. 
For his labors he won the titles of "father of the 
public schools of North Carolina" and "father of 
internal improvements in North Carolina." He was 
the first and greatest of the long and noble line of 
sons that the University has given to the cause of 
public education. At the time of his death he had 
projected the most extensive historical study of 
North Carolina which has ever been proposed and 
had gathered a great mass of material relating to the 
history of the State. 

To the University he was always deeply attached. 
To him it was always the necessary head of the 
public school system which he felt depended upon it. 
Of the University he said in one of his reports in 
1S17: "When the pride of the State is awakening and 
an honorable ambition is cherished for her glory, an 
appeal is made to the patriotism and generous feel- 
ings of the legislature in favor of an institution, 
which in all civilized nations has been regarded 
as the nursery of moral greatness and the palladium 
of civil liberty. That people who cultivate the 
sciences and the arts with most success, acquire a 
most enviable superiority over others. Learned men 
by their discussions and works give a lasting splen- 
dor to national character: and such is the enthusiasm 
of man, that there is not an individual, however hum- 
ble in life his lot may be, who does not feel proud 
to belong to a country honored with great men and 
magnificient institutions. It is due to North Caro- 
lina, it is due to the great men who first proposed the 
foundation of the University, 'to foster it with paren- 
tal fondness, and to give to it an importance com- 
mensurate with the high destinies of the State." 

Tt fell to Murphey's lot in 1822 to render to his 
alma mater a valuable service. He was chosen 'to 
represent the University in a mission to Tennessee 
in connection with the land claims of the institution 
in that State. He appeared before the legislature and 
was successful in securing a satisfactory settlement. 

In 1827 Murphey delivered the first of the famous 
series of addresses before the two societies, an ad- 
dress which was not only a most valuable contribu- 
tion to historical knowledge, but was also one of the 
best of the entire series. 

The volumes under discussion contain two hun- 
dred and fifty-eight letters written either by him or 
to him, and what remain of his writings. There is 
also included the memoir of him written by Governor 
Graham which appeared first in the University Mag- 
azine of 1860. The papers are edited by a great 
grandson of Judge Murphey, Mr. William Henry

A \ i i;-Belli '.m Builders of North Carolina. By 
B. I). W. Connor, in "North Carolina State 
Normal and Industrial College Historical Pub- 
lications," No. 3. Greensboro, 1914. 
Readers of The Review will welcome the appear- 
ance of the "North Carolina State Normal and In- 
dustrial College Historical Publications," issued 
under the direction of the department of history and 
edited by Professor W. C. Jackson. The present 
issue, number 3, (numbers 1 and 2 are in press) con- 
tains a series of lectures by R. D. W. Connor, Secre- 
tary of the State Historical Commission, delivered 
at the State Normal and Industrial College in the 
spring of 1914. The title is "Ante-Bellum Builders 
of North Carolina," and covers an introductory sketch 
of the educational, industrial, and political conditions 
in North Carolina from 1790 to 1840, followed by a 
concise estimate of the influence upon the life of the 
State of Archibald De Bow Murphey, David Lowry 
Swain, Calvin Henderson Wiley, and John Motley 
Morehead. 

In the introductory survey the author portrays in 
clear-cut terms the political, economic, and social 
stagnation of the State during the half century treat- 
ed. Nevertheless he regards it a seeding time in 
democracy, education and industry. The sowers are 
named above. Each made his special contribution, 
applying each in his turn a much needed stimulus to 
the sluggish life of the State. To Murphey as legis- 
lator, 1812-1818, belongs the honor of introducing 
the idea of a definite State policy and of focusing 
public attention upon education and internal improve- 
ments. As chairman of the committee on Inland 
Navigation in the State Senate and chairman of the 
committee on Inland Navigation in the State Senate 
and chairman of the State Board of Internal Im- 
provements he developed a legislative program de- 
signed to arrest the steady flow of the State's popu- 
lation tn the Southwest, to increase its wealth, and 
free it from economic dependence upon Virginia and 
Smith Carolina. As eliairinan of the senate commit 
tee on Education he reported in 1817 a system of 
public instruction. Murphey'a ideas, however, were 
so far in advance of his contemporaries they failed of 
adoption. Nevertheless, under his persistent prodding 
the Sta '■ showed signs of awakening. 



Swain, inspired by the ideas of Murphey, possessed 
the practical knowledge of men and affairs that en- 
abled him as legislator and governor to carry through 
the reform of the State Constitution in 1S35 by which 
our political life was democratized and the energies 
of the people set free. Now it was possible to under- 
take the things of which Murphey had dreamed. 

Calvin Wiley became the creator and leader of the 
new educational movement and as first Superintend- 
ent of Common Schools organized a public school 
system that wrought a profound change in social con- 
ditions and gave North Carolina, between 1853 and 
1866, a foremost place in education among the South- 
ern States. In the meantime also had arisen a great 
practical champion of internal improvements, the 
other feature of Murphey's original program. 

This was John M. Morehead. Under his leader- 
ship, particularly as governor from 1S40 to 1844, the 
State adopted an internal improvements policy de- 
signed to revitalize its economic forces. Morehead 
skillfully directed this policy toward wise and gener- 
ous ends. The grand enterprise was the construction 
of the North ( 'arolina Railroad, planned as a trunk 
line from Beaufort harbor to the Tennessee line. As 
president of the North Carolina Railroad Company 
Morehead in five years, 1850-1855, achieved the con- 
struction of the road from Goldsboro, a distance of 
two hundred and twenty-three miles. 

The fair State edifice in process of erection by 
these strong ante-bellum builders was soon to be 
shaken and all but destroyed by the blast of civil 
war. 



Readings in Political Philosophy. By Francis 
William Coker. N. Y. Macmillan. " 1914. 

In recent years improved methods of teaching his- 
tory and political science have made necessary the 
selection and publication in compact form of the more 
significant and important documents in these fields. 
History has offered the larger opportunity and a 
wealth of material is now at the hand of every teacher 
and student. In political science and government, 
however, less has been done and for political philos- 
ophy nothing milil the a | > j >< ■; it:i 1 1 ■ •< ■<• of the present 
volume, the editor of which is Professor Francis W. 
Coker, a member of the class of 1899, and now pro- 
fessor of political science in the Ohio State Univer- 
sity. 

The collection is a decided contribution not only 
to teachers and their students, — although it is of 
course primarily a text-book, — but also to those in- 
terested in the development of political theory, for 
it gathers together some of the most significant writ-

ings of the following twenty political thinkers: Pla- 
to, Aristotle, Polybius, St. Thomas Aquinas, Dante, 
Marsiglio, Machiavelli, Calvin, "Stephanus Junius 
Brutus," Bodin, Hooker, Grotius, Milton, Hobbes, 
Harrington, Locke, Montesquieu, Rousseau, Paine, 
and Bentham. There is a short but comprehensive 
introduction to the work of each, with a carefully 
selected list of references to works bearing upon the 
subject. 

The volume is good to look at, feels good in one's 
hands, and is admirably adapted to its purposes. 
Professor Coker's selections are of the best and his 
editorial work is excellent. 



Davis' High School Courses of Study and F. W. 
Ballou's High School Organization. 



"Educational Administration and Supervision" is 
the title of a new educational publication of which 
Charles Hughes Johnston, '98, Professor of Secon- 
dary Education in the University of Illinois, Lotus 
D. Coffman, David Snedden, and James H. Van 
Sickle, are editors. The first number appeared in 
January, and the publication is to be issued monthly, 
except July and August, from the house of War- 
wick and York, educational publishers, Baltimore, 
Md. 

The purpose of the publication as set forth in 
the announcement by the editors will be to cover 
the following fields: 1. State and county systems 
of education, including rural education and also 
educational legislation; 2. City school systems, in- 
cluding chiefly problems of city administration, su 
pervision, management, reporting, and educational 
statistics; 3. Secondary education, including prob- 
lems of organization, administration, inspection, cur- 
riculum making, and internal supervision, manage- 
ment and the pedagogy of different subjects, and in- 
cluding also a consideration of those problems of 
higher education involving directly the interests of 
secondary education ; and 4. Elementary education, 
with the problems in this field analogous to those cited 
for secondary education. Vocational education, 
school extension, school hygiene, the school as a 
social center, and the school's co-operative agencies 
will also be considered. 

In the first number, Professor Johnston is the con- 
tributor of a twenty-page article, "The High School 
Issue," in which he presents, in the form of a dia- 
logue, some considerations which should serve as 
guiding principles in the settlement of the problems 
of the present-day secondary school system of Ameri- 
ca. 

Dr. L. A. Williams, of the School of' Education 
of the University, is a contributor of two book re- 
views in the issue. The books reviewed are C. 0. 



"Studies in Southern History and Politics" is 
the title of a collection of historical essays written 
by the former students of Professor W. A. Dunning, 
of the department of history of Columbia University. 
The volume is written in honor of Professor Dun- 
ning and is issued by the Columbia University press. 
Among the contributors are Drs. J. G. de R. Hamil- 
ton, of the department of history of the University, 
and Holland Thompson, of the department of history 
of the College of the City of New York. The 
titles of the essays are, respectively, "Southern Legis- 
lation in Respect to Freedmen, 1865-'66," and "The 
New South, Economic and Social." 



L. Ames Brown, '10, White House Correspondent 
of the New York Sun, is the contributor of "A 
New Era of Good Feeling" in the January number 
of the Atlantic Monthly. The article presents a 
careful and intimate study of the effort of the Wil- 
son administration to promote genuine good feeling 
on the part of the Latin-American republics towards 
the United States. 



STUDIES IN PHILOLOGY BECOMES A QUARTERLY 

With the issue for January, 1915, Studies in 
Philology, which is published by the University 
under the direction of the Philological Club, be- 
comes a quarterly journal. The January number con- 
tains a critical edition by Professor James H. Han- 
ford of a curious debate play, entitled "Wine, Beere, 
Ale, and Tobacco." This play has hitherto been ac- 
cessible only in a rare reprint. Besides being of 
value because of its numerous contemporary allu- 
sions, relating particularly to the manners and cus- 
toms of the tavern, it has special interest for the 
student of Elizabethan drama as a survival of the 
interlude and as a specimen of the minor entertain- 
ments in vogue at the universities. There is clever 
characterization of the chief personages: Wine is a 
gentleman, attended by his page Sugar; Beere, a 
citizen, represents the middle classes of the metrop- 
olis, and is attended by his apprentice Nutmeg; Ale 
is of the country, being accompanied by Toast, one of 
his rural servants, while Tobacco, an innovation in 
the Elizabethan period, is properly represented as 
"a swaggering gentleman," very like Captain Bobadil 
and his glorious company. The play has been edited 
in scholarly fashion by Professor Hanford, who 
shows in his introduction the close connection exist- 
ing between this piece and several well-known Cam- 
bridge University plays. The first three editions

have been collated for the first time, and the text has 
been fully illustrated in notes that bear witness not 
only to the editor's wide reading but also to his 
sense of humor. The appearance of the book is ex- 
ceedingly attractive, and two plates, reproducing the 
title pages of the first two editions, add to the value 
of this reprint. 

The current issue of Studies in Philology begins 
the twelfth volume of this valuable series, and will 
add to the prestige already enjoyed by the journal. 
The first issue of the Studies appeared in 1906, and 
consisted of a study of Chaucer's Relative Construc- 
tions by Dr. L. R. Wilson, now the Librarian of the 
University. For several years the publication was 
edited by Professor C. Alphonso Smith, and the is- 
sues appearing under his direction bear witness to the 
careful work in philology done by his students. The 
third volume is composed of a study of the influence 
of Hoffman on the tales of Edgar Allen Poe. written 
as a Columbia dissertation by Professor Palmer 
Cobb. Several master's theses have appeared in the 
series, such as Dr. Ehyne's study of the conjunctive 
plus participle group in English and Mr. Howard's 
study of the Dramatic Monologue. Professor Royster, 
who was chairman of the editorial committee 
from 1910 to 1914, also contributed several papers, 
notably an edition, with introduction and notes, of a 
Middle English treatise on the ten commandments. 
Other members of the faculty who have contributed 
to the series are Professors Howe, Bain, Towles, 
Booker, Cross. Wilbur Royster, and Greenlaw. Thus 
the Studies represent work done in classical as well 
as in modern languages, while the fact that the club 
interprets "philology" in the liberal sense of any 
contribution to the higher study of language and lit- 
erature is proved by such papers as Professor Bain's 
careful study of the demonstrative pronoun in Soph- 
ocles and Professor Howe's vigorous discussion of 
recent criticism of Latin literature, thus represent- 
ing both syntax and literary criticism in the same 
volume of the Studies. 

The April issue is to contain an interesting paper 
on Methods of Characterization in Terence, read at 
the February meeting of the club by Professor 
Henry. Studies in Philology is sent to many univer- 
sities and scholars in all of America and Europe, and 
letters frequently come to the club bearing witness 
to the value of these contributions to scholarship. 



WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY, 1801 

In spite of the fact that bulletins of the great war 
are daily being received at the Hill by means of the 



newly installed wireless station on the New East 
building and some 200 or more students visited their 
homes on the 22nd of February, many of them mak- 
ing the first twelve miles of the trip by automobiles, 
the following letter taken from the recently published 
papers of Archibald De Bow Murphey, of the class 
of 1799 and professor of ancient languages, 1800- 
1801, shows that the campus of 1S01 had something 
in common with that of 1915 : 

Chapel Hill, Feby. 23rd. 1801. 
Deae Sie — 

Yesterday being the Birth day of Genl. Washing- 
ton was celebrated by the young Gentlemen of the 
University in a way suitable to the Occasion and to 
the Day. Agreeably to their request, the Faculty have 
suspended Business on this day, in order to have a 
Ball in the evening. I lay hold of the opportunity 
offered by this Suspension to write to the Hermitage: 
from which place I have received no direct accounts 
since my return to Colledge. This would have in- 
duced me to visit it before this time, had it been in 
my power. As the Spring comes on, my confinement 
grows more and more irksome. Shut up within the 
Walls of Colledge, I long for the beautiful and de- 
lightful scenes, which Nature begins everywhere to 
display : But from which I am entirely secluded. In 
vain does nature spread her Green Carpet for those 
who are destined to one perpetual round of Busi- 
ness, from which they have not the Liberty of with- 
drawing themselves scarcely for a moment. I delight 
at this Season of the year, to ramble thro' the Fields 
and Meadows which begin to clothe themselves with 
fresh Verdure; to walk over Hills and Vallies, where 
Herbs, Shrubs and Trees begin to blossom. How 
beautiful must the Hermitage soon appear! And 
how much more happy, Sir, must you live in such re- 
tirement, In conversing with Nature's Works, than 
those who spend their days in the Hurry and Bustle 
of the World ; who must pass to their Graves, Strang- 
ers to that Tranquility and Serenity of Mind which 
few enjoy, except those who have a Taste for the 
I Iran ties of Nature. With what pleasure shall I retire 
tn those delightful Scenes, from the wearisome Avo- 
cations of professional Life! 

No News has yet been received at this place con- 
cerning the election of a President; nor news of any 
kind which is worthy of being communicated. The 
Treaty with France is ratified with the rejection of 
the second Article and a Limitation to eight years. It 
is said, that Samuel Dexter, the present Secretary in 
the Department of War, will be the Bearer of the

THE EDUCATION OF ZEBULON B. VANCE 

The following paragraphs are taken from the con- 
cluding paragraphs of an article by R. D. W. Connor 
which appeared in the State press of January 31. 

For the University and for the friends whom he 
had made there — many of whom remained ever his 
constant and loyal supporters — Vance always felt 
the sincerest gratitude and the purest affection. Upon 
his election as governor in 1876, he wrote to Mrs. 
Spencer : 

"You know my heart is with the old University and 
it gives me real pleasure to be in a situation to be 
useful to it." 

Again, in 1879, immediately after his election to 
the United States senate, he wrote: 

"I thank you most heartily for your letter of con- 
gratulation. Amid all the ups and downs of my ca- 
reer, the joys and sorrows which have come to me in 
the past quarter of a century, my friends in Chapel 
Hill — yourself chief among them — have never failed 
to rejoice with me when I rejoiced and mourn with 
me when I mourned. I have often thanked God for 
leading my steps when a youth to Chapel Hill where 
I formed such friendships as have been a blessing to 
my life." 

And, finally, in 1880, writing again to Mrs. Spen- 
cer, he says : 

"There is no spot in North Carolina with whose 
people my thoughts have more constantly been and 
for whose prosperity I have more earnestly prayed 
than Chapel Hill. * * * My regard for the 
University arises not only from the kind relations 
existing between all the people there and myself, but 
because more is done there toward the true glory and 
prosperity of North Carolina than anywhere else — 
more in which I can justly take a pride when talking 
to strangers." 



LEND-A-VOLUME LIBRARY 

Under the above caption, Benjamin Wyche, '94, 
formerly Librarian of the University, contributed 
an article to the January number of the Library 
Journal of New York. 

The idea presented in the article is somewhat as 
follows: A great many individuals purchase books. 



As soon as the books are read, usually by not more 
than the purchaser and one or two others, they are 
placed on the bookshelf and begin to collect dust 
instead of being put to some good use. 

Mr. Wyche proposes to change this system. To do 
this, he suggests that a number of owners of books 
in communities which are without libraries organize 
an association, decide upon a central loaning station, 
and deposit with it such books as the members do 
not care to keep on their shelves but which would 
be of interest to others in the community. In this 
way library resources of considerable extent could 
be developed in many communities which otherwise 
are cut off from library facilities. 

The plan is simple. It calls for no additional out- 
lay of funds, and, seemingly, it could be tried out to 
profit.

dition, failed to restore her to health. She is sur- 
vived by her husband, Mr. W. J. Dixon, and her son, 
Mr. Sam Dixon, '07.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



He studied at Wake Forest and completed his course at the 
University of North Carolina, being admitted to the bar 
in 1900. 

After receiving his license he became a member of the 
State bar association and was three years city attorney of 
Kinston. He was county attorney two years previous. He 
became a member of the lower house in 1909, and remained in 
that body until his death. 

In the lower house he held important positions in every 
session and by virtue of those honors and his undoubted sym- 
pathy with the spirit of Democracy today, he became a for- 
midable candidate for the speakership. Against a field of un- 
commonly able men he was elected on the opening night of 
the General Assembly. 

As speaker his administration was marked with the utmost 
good feeling. In the 40-odd days that he handled the gavel he 
made no ruling from which any appeal was made, nor one de- 
cision that called for any question. 

Mr. Wooten married Miss Nannie Cox 10 years ago and 
she survives, with two children. He leaves a mother, too, 
witli one surviving member of a family of 11 children. 

1910 

— W. R. Edmonds, Judge of the city court of High Point, 
died at Albuquerque, New Mexico, at 4 130 o'clock on the 
morning of Thursday, January 21, and was buried at his 
home in Mt. Airy, N. C, on Wednesday, January 27. 

Mr. Edmonds became ill one year ago. For a time last 
spring he was thought to be improving, but it became neces- 
sary in the summer for him to withdraw from his duties. 
In the fall the change to New Mexico was resolved upon 
and thither he went firmly believing that his health would 
be restored. 

It was two weeks ago that his wife of not quite two years 
received a message that called her to his bedside in the far- 
away state of New Mexico. She made the long trip alone, 
and arrived four days before the end. 

Judge Edmonds had a short but brilliant career. He gradu- 
ated from the University in the class of 1910. As a student 
he was described as "A philosopher of the mountains." He 
stood high in student life. Within a few months he was 
licensed to practice law, first going to Rowland, this State. 
From there he went to High Point, and in a short time was 
honored with the judgeship of the Municipal court. 

In 1913 he was appointed a trustee of the University. He 
was universally liked and had hundreds of friends, who re- 
garded his future as full of great service.
