Edward Kidder Graliiun, formally inaugurated 
President on Wednesday, April 21, requires no word 
of introduction or commendation to 
the alumni of the University. For 
twenty-one years he" has been known 
to the student body, and for sixteen years he has 
served the University in many capacities. His rec- 
ord is at once the pride of the so'ds of the institution 
over which he is to preside and the basis of their 
hope that Alma Mater, under his leadership, will 
greatly promote the welfare of the commonwealth 
that nourishes her. 


The significance of the inauguration is not to be 
found in the honor shown the University by other so- 
cieties and institutions, thotigh this 
was signal. Every section of the 
country paid high tribute to the 
work done here by the presence of a total of more 
than a hundred personal representatives. Nor does 
it lie in the good will widely voiced by the press 
throughout the State and nation, nor even in the 
splendid spirit of student body, faculty, alumni and 
State, which everywhere expressed itself. It is to be 
found rather in the fact that the University, which 
from 1875 to the present has steadily struggled up to 
a position in which it can serve largely, was, "with 
all its jjowcrs and all its energies, through the simple 
ceremonial, reverently and passionately further dedi- 
cated to the civilization that it exists to serve." 


As has already been indicated, in attempting to 
realize this further self-dedication the University 

has today a tremendouslv effective 
FACULTY AND . j- u 1^1% 

STUDENT 4ID ^'^^^^ — faculty and student co-oper- 
ation. Without thought of remun- 
eration or regard to the physical discomfort involved, 
members of the faculty within recent years have glad- 
ly assumed the additional burdens of lecturing 
throughout the State, of editing bulletins, of issuing 
the News Letter, of carrying on correspondence 
courses, of answering numerous requests and of par- 
ticipating in many activities outside of the regular 
work of the University. From the point of view of 
its rarity in other institutions, the co-operation of 
the student body has been even a greater asset. With- 


in the present year three hundred visitors attending 
the High School Debates have been entertained by it. 
From October until the present time county club 
members have constantly worked on home county 
problems for no other purpose than to carry the 
University in useful service back home. Dtiring the 
Christmas holidays many of the home-retttrning boys 
entertained the home alumni in order to better in- 
form them of the work of Alma ]\rater and on the 
day of President Graham's inauguration three htin- 
dred of them gladly gave up their places at Swain 
Hall in order that the guests of the University might 
be fittingly entertained, sixty-two of them volunteer- 
ing to serve as waiters at the luncheon. Herein is 
something which brings strength to the arm of the 
University, and something which it receives more 
largely than any other institution in the country. 


The University is also deeply conscious of the fact 
stated by Mr. Stephens in his greetings from the 
alumni that there is among the 
alumni a sjjleudid feeling of co- 
operation, a keen desire to be of in- 
telligent help. It knows too that in spreading its 
influence and deepening its power and fruitftilness 
the alumni can render tremendous service. But not- 
withstanding this, it realizes as do the alumni that 
this splendid potential force which exhibits itself 
here and there in loyal exjiression has not as yet been 
fully caught into the steady sustaining current that 
would be great enough to send the University for- 
ward with irrestible jjower. 


Here is the great fact for the alumni. Everybody 

realizes it. The question is, what can be done to get 

into the University the spirit, the 
ALUMNI , +1, *• 1 I, 1 j; 

roNFFRFNCF sound seuse, the practical help of 

the great scattered army of her 

sans; and what can be done to give to them her 

spirit and ideals and definite purpose. In the hope 

of answering this question, here is a plan that will 

be put through at this commencement. 

Tuesday, June 1, is Alumni Day. Immediately 

after the alumni address and class re-unions, an 

Alumni Conference will be held with the topic "What 

the Alumni Can Do to Help the University in Its 



Work.'" This is not to be an oratorical contest, nor 
a meeting for the election of officers and reading of 
the minutes of last meeting. It is to be a conference 
of people equally interested in the management of 
the greatest enterprise in North Carolina, who have 
the faith that if it can draw together all of the 
strength that it has, it can be the greatest enterprise 
of its sort in the country. Straight-f rom-the-shoulder 
talk, brief, sincere, is what is wanted with the thought 
that we are all at work on the same big job and will 
not be misunderstood, even if we may be disagreed 
with, and that ideas and ways and means ai-e what we 
are after and nothing else. 


Here is the great chance and Tuesday, June 1, at 
twelve o'clock is the time. Come to this meeting 

even if you have but the one day 

BIG BUSINESS , , x <■ r>^„'+ 

to spend at commencement. Don t 

let business interfere. This is big business. Write 

to your friend that you know is interested in the 

University and tell him to meet you there. Talk it 

over with the alumni rn your town and if there is 

an alumni association, have a meeting with this as 

a topic and bring a message from that meeting. 


A great many requests have come from alumni and 
others for a coj^y of the addresses made at the in- 
auguration ceremonies. A full ac- 
AN OPPORTUN- ^,^(^ q£ ^ijg proceedings is now be- 
ITY, NOT A 1 1 -n ? ir i ^ 

REQUEST '^^S Pi'^P'^i'^" 'i^'i "'^1^ "^ published. 

What the Committee would like to 
do is to make this publication worthy of the occasion 
— a volume to be preserved permanently and to 
present the Univeristy adequately to the whole nation. 
To put it in this form will cost. Is there an alumnus 
who would like the opportunity to perform this fine 
service to the University and to the State ? Or is 
there a group of alumni who would undertake to 
guarantee the luoney ? This is not a request ; it is 
an opportunity! 

In answer to the communication appearing in the 
last issue of The Review^ Lawrence S. Holt, Jr., 
has heard from a Tiumber of alumni 
saying they would subscribe for one 
copy of an alumni catalogue at such a price as the 
committee on publication considered reasonable and 
would also contribute $5 or $10 to the general publi- 
cation fund. Here, seemingly, is a way by which 
the publication can be secured. Id any attempt 
which the alumni may make towards a more vital 
co-operation with the University, this publication is 


absolutely essential. Write Mr. Holt your ideas 
about it and come to the conference prepared to 
discuss this and any other topics which are in har- 
mony with the purpose of the meeting. 


Alumni, attention ! An innovation which has been 
decided upon for the approaching Alumni Luncheon 
in Swain Hall, at 1 :30 P. M., June 
1, is that alumni will have the privi- 
lege of being accompanied at the 
Limcheon by their wives and guests, and that they 
will be charged $1.00 per plate each for themselves 
and those accompanying them. Tickets can be se- 
cured in advance by sending a check to E. R. Rankin, 
Chapel Hill, N. C. Music, stunts by the students 
and alumni, and a good time in general are promised. 



The program for Commencement May 30, 31, 
June 1, 2, 1915, as announced by the University, 
promises to be of genuine interest, and reports from 
the alumni indicate that the alumni features of the 
occasion will be of the worth while order. 

Reduced rates for the occasion have been secured 
from points in Virginia and Worth Carolina, and the 
train between University and Chapel Hill will make 
an extra trip for the Hill, leaving University at

Plans for the University Summer School have just 
been issued in a special announcement by Director 
N. W. Walker. The session for 191.5 will begin June 
1.5 and continue through July 30. 

Courses will be offered in English, History, Latin, 
Greek, German, French, Spanish, Mathematics, 
Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Geography, Geology, 
Library Science, Drawing, Writing, Music, Agri- 
culture and Nature Study, Home Economics, Phys- 
iology, Hygiene, Plays and Games, Story Telling, 
Primary Methods, Grammar Grade Methods, School 
Administration and Supervision, Educational Psy- 

chology, and Education. A two-teacher Practice 
School will be conducted regularly and a faculty of 
•16 members will offer instruction. 

Several new features which will add to the effec- 
tiveness of the school have been added. Among these 
are two special institutes of three weeks each, which 
are to be conducted for the benefit of those who meet 
the requirement of attending an institute for three 
weeks at least once in two years. In this way those 
attending the institutes will have the opportunity of 
hearing the public lectures of the school as well as 
carrying on the prescribed work of the institute. It 
will also enable those who spend the entire six 
weeks to carry on their work steadily without inter- 
ruption incident to the hitherto constant changing 
in the composition of the classes. The first institute 
will begin at the opening of the term and continue 
for three weeks, to be followed immediately by the 

For the second time the school will offer credit 
courses for the A. B. and A. M. degrees. In fact every 
course offered this year will lead to some specific 
credit, ranging from the certificate for institute atten- 
dance up to the A. M. Special conferences on Rural 
Life, July 5-10, and on High Schools, July 12-17, 
have been arranged. The special speaker from a 
distance for the former will be Dr. William A. Mc- 
Keever, of the University of Kansas. 

Special railroad rates are offered and the total 
expense for the six weeks at Chapel Hill will be only 
$30 or $31.

In the presence of the most notable assemblage 
of educators, State officials,' trustees, alumni, and

Inaugural Exercises 

Within Memorial Hall, thronged beyond its ca]ia- 
city. His Excellency, Governor Locke Craig, presid- 
ed. He presented Bishop Edward Eondthaler, of 
the Moravian church and long connected with Salem 

Academy and College, the second oldest school in 
North Carolina, who delivered in a most impressive 
manner the invocation. 

In a brief introductory address, Governor Craig 
sounded the keynote of the exercises — the dedication 
not only of a man to the high office of President, but 
the rededication of the University and her sons to 
the service of the State: 

"We come," he declared, "to dedicate a man to his 
work. It demands the energy of his life always 
steadfast to the high obligation that he assumes. The 
task calls for the noblest ; for it is the keeping and the 
development of this institution sanctified by tradi- 
tion, potential for infinite good. 

"On this day of the inauguration of the new Presi- 
dent, by simple ceremonial we devote anew this Uni- 
versity to the service of men, and in this time of mili- 
tant altruism significant of human destiny, with vic- 
torious assurance we give the forward order. We 
raise him to this exalted place because he is worthy 
of our past, equal to the opportunities of the future, 
and because he will lay upon the altar of this his 
Alma Mater, a priceless sacrifice, essential in every 





scheme for the redemption of men ; a pure and earn- 
est life." 

Governor Craig then introduced tlie distinguished 
speakers, who spoke on the general theme " Aspects 
of Higher Education." Dr. Abbott Lawrence Low- 
ell, President of Harvard University, who as the 
first speaker was to discuss "Culture," was unavoid- 
ably detained. Lie was represented, however, by 
Professor Charles H. White who, later in the exer- 
cises, presented the greetings of Harvard. 

Dr. Frank J. Goodnow, President of Johns Hop- 
kins L^niversity, explained the function and place of 
"Research" in the American college. He declared 
that man could not arrive at the many problems of 
life exclusively through thinking i)rocesses. "I 
think it is fair to say, then, that the common atti- 
tude of man towards the phenomena of life has been 
one of what we may call thoughtftilness. Lie has 
speculated rather than observed, theorized rather 
than experimented." 

With man's growing interest in science, a differ- 
ent mental attitude has been manifested, and this 
changed attitude has had a marked effect u])on our 
educational ideals and methods. To quote President 
Goodnow further : "In the first place I think we may 
properly say that the modern educated man, the 
scholar, if we may use that much abused terra, is a 
much more modest man than was the case with his 

forebear. He distrusts broad generalizations, he 
abhors general theories, he has no faith whatever in 
panaceas for the ills from which society suffers. He 
is convinced that every addition to our knowledge 
must come as the result of painstaking observation 
rather than of brilliant thinking. 

"In a word I think we may say, that the most re- 
markable concrete manifestation of this changed in- 
tellectual attitude is that the scholar and the pi'ae- 
tical man have come closer together. We endeavor 
j)robably more than ever before, to inculcate in those 
who are being educated the desire to find out as the 
result of research and investigation what are the 
actual facts and what is the real truth. We must of 
course curb our enthusiasm for research and investi- 
gation so that it will not lead us to neglect other 
things of value. We must remember that we have a 
past as well as a future ; that we even now know many 
things although we have much to discover and learn. 
We \vho have the young to teach must not forget our 
charges in our pursuit of the unknown." 

President Alderman 

Di-. Kdwin Anderson Alderman, President of the 
University of Virginia, was the next speaker. His 
ajipearance on the ])latform called forth prolonged 
applause, and he was heard with great pleasure as 
he discussed with matchless charm and grace the 



theme of education and democracy, as "Education in 
Service." After tracing briefly its jDrogress in the 
nineteenth century, Dr. Alderman thus defined de- 
mocracy : 

"Conceived of as a ruling spirit in the heart of the 
individual, democracy means, according to the Amer- 
ican point of view, faith in the ultimate recitude of 
public impulse and the ultimate wisdom of trained 
intelligence. As a political system, it is that state 
in which men have an opportunity to earn freedom 
through mastery of themselves and likewise a right to 
govern themselves and others through the exercise 
of reason, intelligence and sympathy. As a working 
social theory democracy has greatly advanced its 
point of view from a theory of politics and philoso- 
phy to a theory of social and economic fairness and 
opportunity from a negative fear of tyrants to a posi- 
tive hope of perfection." 

Continuing, Dr. Alderman said: "If such, then, 
be the nature of modern democracy, it is very clear 
that the one thing it cannot do without is the school, 
and the one thing the school, high or low, cannot do 
without is a clear notion of how it can train all men 
not only to perform the duties of free citizenship 
but can give all men an opportunity to obtain a fair 
share of the fullness of life. In theory this whole 
undertaking is one daring, unified, correlated pro- 
cess, and at its summit stands the university, in a 
peculiar organic sense, the state university, exist- 
ing both as the symbol and the servant of the spiri- 
tual insights and practical needs of its epoch." 

Dr. Alderman sees in the growth of education a 
corresponding growth in the sj^irit of democracy. 
"Life or death to American democracy depends upon 
whether its scheme of education shall be strong, and 
catholic enough to reach not alone the youth to be 
educated, but all the forces which surround him and 
which educate him — companions, family, community, 
a force which Fichte dreamed his ITniversity would 
be, 'a place from which, as from the spiritual heart 
of the community, a current of life-energy might be 
poured through all its members.' The reorganization 
of political and industrial life on the j^rinciple of 
democracy, and stimulated by the elementary and 
secondary schools has brought into existence a new 
world of men. Refusal to administer to the needs of 
this new world would mean a menace to the body of 
civilization. To train the tenth man was the func- 
tion of the ancient university. To train all men, di- 
rectly or indirectly, is the duty of the American uni- 
versity within whose walls I am convinced the his- 
tory and destiny of democracy will be shaped." 

In concluding Dr. Alderman spoke beautifully 

and feelingly of Alma Mater, the State which has 
nourished her and the new leader who, in days to 
come, is reverently to minister at her altar: 

"Whatever path of service our American univer- 
sities may choose, and freedom of choice belongs to 
them, the path of this particular University, entering 
today so impressively upon a new and confident era 
in its history, lies clear and shining before it. No 
just man can deny to it leadership as the chief con- 
structive agent in the building of a new social order 
in an old, historic State, whose entire history, in weal 
or woe, in defeat or triumph, is the very epic of the 
deathlessness of democratic hopes. 

"This spot to me is a place of high memories and 
realities. Here I studied and taught and administer- 
ed. Here I made acquaintance with the charm of 
scholarship and the obligation of public service. 
Here democracy for me ceased to be a theory and em- 
bodied itself in living forms. I acclaim with affec- 
tion and with confidence the new high priest who to- 
day takes his place at this altar. Strength to his 
arm and vision to his brain and steadfastness to his 
heart; and may Alma Mater live and grow and 
flourish forever." 

Induction Ceremonies 

Owing to the urgency of legislation pending be- 
fore the Legislature of ISTew York, Dr. John H. Fin- 
ley, President of the LTniversity of the State of New 
York, fourth speaker on the program, was unable 
to be present. Consequently, Governor Craig intro- 
duced former President Francis Preston Venable 
who thus fittingly presented Presideiit Graham for 
the administration of the oath and induction into 
office by Walter Clark, Chief Justice of North Caro- 
lina, and Governor Craig, Chairman of the Board 
of Trustees: 
"YoDE Excellency: 

"It is my privilege and a great pleasure to present 
Edward Kidder Graham, who has been chosen as 
the eighth president of the University of North Caro- 
lina. I take much pride in the fact that I have had 
a share in his teaching and training. I have watched 
Ills growth and promise and achievements through 
his student years and the years of service in the 
faculty and they give me an assured confidence in his 
ability and wisdom. 

"I present to you the President-elect." 

President Graham 

Greeted with an outburst of applause, President 
Graham prefaced his most significant inaugural ad- 
dress, an abstract of which is given below, with the 
following eloquent reference to his predecessors, three

of whom, Drs. Battle, Alderman, and Venable, were 
present to participate in his induction into office: 

"This high commission, I receive from the State in 
a spirit of deep and reverent confidecce that does not 
sirring from any thoiight of personal resource. If 
all the wealth of treasured memory and hope that 
this institution represents were an individual re- 
sponsibility, it would be a burden too heavy to be 
borne; but this great company of her sons, and her 
kindred, and her friends is testimony to the wide and 
loyal fellowship of learning that hedges her securely 
round about, and makes the individual heart strong 
enough for anything. ISTor less reassuring, as the 
standard passes to an untried hand, is the host of 
happy thoughts released by the presence of those who 
since the reopening gave themselves to her guidance 
in wisdom and complete devotion. To them today 
the institution pays the perfect tribute of her abun- 
dant life that they gave their strength to promote; 
to her latest leader, the architect of her material re- 
building, whose wise and patient care inwrought into 
her standards the ideals of modern scholarship; to 
his predecessor, whose sympathetic insight and states- 
manlike vision gave eloquent expression to the voice- 
less aspiration of his people and made him their inter- 
preter, both to themselves and to the nation ; to his 
predecessor, whose aggressive and brilliant leader- 
ship performed the essential service of making the 
University a popular right and privilege ; to his pre- 
decesor — the historian of her heroic past, on whose 
heart each syllable of her story is written — who liv- 
ed through a period of bitterness withoTit a hate, who 
endured poverty without a regret, achieved honor 
without pride, and who now so deeply shares the 
eternal youth aboiit him that age finds him with a 
heart so young and a life so full of affection and 
praise that he is the witness of his own immortality. 

"As the mind dwells on all of this exalted loyalty 
and unselfish devotion, once again persons, even the 
most heroic, fade into the background of the cause 
that evoked their heroisms, and our present ceremo- 
nial becomes less the installation of an individual 
than a reverent and passionate dedication of all of us 
and all of the energies and powers of all of us to the 
civilization that the institution exists to serve." 

Abstract of the Inaugural Address 

The life of the University of North Carolina began 
with the life of the nation itself ; and the period since 
its reopening in 1875 is the great period of material 
upbuilding of the North and West. The next great 
expansion will be in the South, where will be made 
once more the experiment of translating prosperity in 

terms of a great civilization. It is to leadership in 
this that state universities are called. 

State universities originated in the South, but they 
failed to develop there as democratic institutions be- 
cause the section was aristocratic. They came into 
full strength in the West where, as an aggregate of 
the various colleges of arts, applied science, technical 
and professional schools, they seek to reassert what 
past civilizations say to America, together with what 
America has to say for itself. 

The state university is more than an aggregate, 
however, of institutions that express the culture 
ideals of culture as learning, culture as research and 
as vocation; as a university "it is a living unity, an 
organism at the heart of the living democratic state, 
interpreting its life, not by parts, nor a summary of 
parts, but wholly fusing them all into a new culture 
center, giving birth to a new humanism." The evo- 
lution of the state university and of the democratic 
state have been parallel as they move into the twen- 
tieth century from this new center of reality. Each 
has sought to make of its compartmental life an or- 
ganism of constructive co-operation. From this new 
center they are already sending forth new and con- 
fident premonitions of fuller and more abundant life 
under equal opportunity to all of the powers of all 
men infinitely to expand. 

The southern state university is at the vital center 
of the state's formative material prosperity in in- 
dustry and agriculture, not only seeking to assist 
in solving their practical problems, but through show- 
ing their larger and deeper relations to make of them 
liberal vocations — not to save a man from business, 
biit through it ; to make of the cropper, a farmer, and 
of the farmer, man-on-the-farm. 

As the organic instrument for realizing the highest 
aspirations of the living state, one inevitable quality 
the state university must have : it must be alive ! sen- 
sitively and robustly alive in every vital part of it 
to the time and needs and place of the people it 
serves. Not that it would not illustrate in its life 
the traditions that have made its past nobly useful 
and beautiful, and seek guidance in the experience of 
the great of its kind ; but that the need of every in- 
stitution is to assert its original genius that it alone 
has and can have and that alone gives it value in the 

Speaking particularly of this Univeristy and of 
the part which he would have it play in the develop- 
ment and enrichment of the life of the State, Presi- 
dent- Graham said in conclusion : 

"Such is the covenant of our immortal mother 
'with those who are living and those who are dead 



aud those who are yet unborn,' buikling herself 'from 
immemorial time as each generation kneels and fights 
and fades.' She will hold secure her priceless heri- 
tage from her elder sons as the pledge of the faith 
she keeps; she will cherish the j^assionate loyalty of 
her latest issues with the sacred pride that only a 
mother knows ; she will seek guidance above the con- 
fusion of voices that cry out paths of duty about her, 

in the experience of the great of her kind the world 
over ; but she will uot in self-contemj^lation and imi- 
tation lose her own creative power and that original 
genius that alone gives her value in the world. As 
the Alma Mater of the living State and all the higher 
aspirations of its people she would draw from it 
the strength that is as the strength of its ever- 
lasting hills, and give answer in terms of whole

and wholesome life as fresh as the winds of 
the world that take new tone from its pine-clad jjlains. 
Eager, confident, sympathetic, and with understand- 
ing heart 'she standeth on the top of the high places, 
by the way in the places of the path ; she crieth out 
at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors, 
unto you. men, I call, and my voice is to the sons 
of men.' " 

Following the address, greetings were extended in 
short addresses in this order : From state universities, 
by Dr. George H. Denny, President of the University 
of Alabama; From Colleges of the State, by Dr. 
William J. Martin, President of Davidson College; 
From the public schools, by Dr. James Y. Joyner, 
Superintendent of Public Instruction; From the 
alumni, by George Stephens, of the Class of 1896; 

From Left to Right: Top — President Graham and Dr. Battle, Mr. Royster and Seniors; Middle — Representatives, Delegates, and Members of the 

Faculty; Bottom — The Crowd at Memorial Hall 



From the Student body, by Thomas Calleudine Bou- 
shall, of the Class of 1915 ; from the Faculty, by Lu- 
cius Polk McGehee, Dean of the School of Law. 
Two extracts from the greetings from the student 
body and alumni respectively voice the prevailing sen- 
timent of the occasion : 

"To offer our loyalty to our new President is su- 
perfluous, he has won it. To pledge our support is 
but a form, for we have accepted him as our leader. 
To assure him of our atfection is to question the love 
of brothers. To rejoice upon this happy occasion is 
but natural, and to express our happiness is a task 
of poets — inspired and of laureate fame." 

"Throughout the length and breadth of this land, 
and in lauds beyond the seas, are over five thousand 
loyal alumni for whom I am privileged to stand and 
in whose name I speak. There are those, some of 
whom are present, whose service to the University 
may be counted by the half century. Through them 
will flow into you inspiration from the rich traditions 
of the past. Others, well past the meridian of life 
but workers still, will bring to you the counsel of 
ripened experience in teruis of jii'csent day activ- 
ities. And there is a vast throno- that T shall desie;- 

nate as belonging to your own generation; for 
them I shall say this, that with you, shoulder to 
shoulder and heart to heart, we ask to have a working 
part in the great task that you have so auspiciously 
begun. In spirit those who are absent and in person 
those who are here, share with you the joy of this 
notable occasion, when so distinguished a company 
has gathered to speak earnest words of greeting in 
fitting recognition of the great honor that has come 
to you. The occasion honors, too, our Alma Mater. 
Her life has been your life, you know her needs, her 
problems, her opportunities. And now your strength, 
which has become her strength, will find infinite 
renewal in the knowledge you have of her greatness. 
To you and to our Dear Mother, I bring affectionate 
greetings from the alumni, your brothers and her 
sons, and here and now we pledge anew to you and 
to her our loyalty, deeper and more sincere today by 
reason of the inspiring vision of her future that your 
leadership has already given us." 

The University Hymn was then sung, the bene- 
diction was pronounced by Bishop Rondthaler, and 
the Academic Procession passed out, the audience 


Six Hundred Persons Enjoy the Menu and Listen to Expressions of Greeting and Good Will 

Following the Inaugural Exercises as the second 
part of the program of the day a most delightful 
luncheon was served in Swain Hall, the new dining 
room of the University. Covers for six hundred 
were laid and nearly every seat was occujned, a new 
feature in University gatherings of this kind being 
the presence of a number of ladies throughout the 
Hall. The menu proved most excellent and was 
skillfully served by sixty-two members of the student 

Secretary Daniels, Toastmaster 

Presiding as toastmaster, Hon. Josephus Daniels, 
'Secretary of the Navy, brought greetings to the Uni- 
versity from President Woodrow Wilson. He then 
read the following telegram from Dr. George Tayloe 
Winston, who, at the time, was at Johns Hopkins 
Hospital and too unwell to be present : 
Telegram from Dr. Winston 

"I am with you today in spirit, rejoicing over 
the growth of the State and the University. I pro- 
pose the following toast: 

"The Old North State: May each generation find 
her a better state to live in, with large freedom of 
soul and broader mental horizon ; and may this happy 

evolution be achieved in the future as in the past 
by her noble University I" 

Governor Craig was called mi as the first speaker 
and spdke enthusiastically of the University. Dr. 
K. P. Battle expressed his delight in having a part 
in the ceremonies of the day and spoke in a reminis- 
cent vein. He was followed by Former President 
^'enable who referred feelingly to his successor and 
the years of service he had devoted to the University 
and State. 

Dr. Venable Speaks 

"I rejoice to see this day. I rejoice in behalf of 
my old lioy. my dear friend, the stanch and loyal 
supporter of my administration, Edward Kidder 
Graham. I rejoice on my own behalf, for the burden 
of responsibility and care which had grown too heavy 
for my strength is now rolled off. I rejoice in behalf 
of the University, for I see before it from this day 
a growth and development, and an increase of use- 
fulness which no prophet here can measure or place 
limitations to. 

"May I be pardoned if I give a little of ancient 
history ? I came to this dear spot 3.5 years ago, a 
boy of 23, expected to take upon me all the duties 





of a professiirsliip of flipiuistvy without any assis- 
tance and with no money. I found here an institu- 
tion of some half dozen professors, with an income of 
$10,500 — a very small lieginning, hut let us not for- 
get that in that day of small beginnings great things 
were done. There were only some 150 students, but 
it was sound learning which was taught and that 
earnest and honest work was done is proved by the 
fact that out of that small numlier came our honored 
toastmaster, the Governor of the State, the Presi- 
dent of the University of Virginia, our Superinten- 
dent of Public Education, a bishop of the Episcopal 
Church, and Aycock and ilclver who have gone on 
before. It is hard to measure such a list from so 
small a number. 

"Thirty-five years is a long time, and I am proud 
to say that in this more than a century and a quarter 
of the University's history, there are only three men 
who have exooeded my length of continuous service — - 
Caldwell, the first president, Mitcliell, and Dr. James 
Phillips — and if I can continue uiy work for a half 
dozen years longer, I shall then have the record of 
the longest continuous service in the University. 
Now, when I think of it, that in these years more 
boys have come here, and been under my training — 
whatever that may have meant to them, it has meant 
a great deal to me — that I have had more of the youth 
of the State entrusted to my care than any other 
professor, don't you know that T feel proud of it? 
And I am grateful to the people of this State that 

this opportunity has been granted me of doing such 
a service." 

Greetings from Representatives 
Representatives of other institutions and socities 
were then presented who brought the University and 
its 'new head cordial greetings. In this number were, 
to quote from the State Journal Dr. W. Miller, 
of the University of Ontario, Canada, who brought 
the greetings of his institution to President Graham 
on his inauguration and to Dr. Charles H. Herty on 
his election as president of the American Chemical 
Society; Miss Marion Reilly, Dean of Bryn Mawr 
College, who captured her audience with her ease 
and grace of manner and her cordial gi-eetings for 
President Graham; Dr. C. Alphonso Smith, of the 
University of Virginia, who spoke of the dynamic 
force of education, and referred to the University of 
North Carolina as once the oldest, but now the young- 
est of tlu' state universities: IMr. J. J. Blair, super- 
intendent of the Wilmington graded schools, who ac- 
counted for being called upcm by the toastmaster by 
the fact that he came from the only available Tiaval 
base in the State; Prof. W. A. ISTitze, of the Univer- 
sity of Chicago, who coupled with his greetings con- 
gratulation that a professor of English had been 
chosen President of the University; Dr. D. H. Hill, 
President of the Agricultural and Mechanical Col- 
lege, who spoke for harmony and co-operation be- 
tween his institution and the University in the service 
of the State; Dr. Charles Baskerville, who brought 



greetiuii's from the New York Academy of Science 
and the College of the City of New York, and refer- 
red in graceful manner to the instruction given him 
by Dr. Venable, when a student at the University; 
Hon. T. W. Bickett, Attorney General of the State, 
who congratulated President Graham on his close 
svmiJathy with the jseople of the State; Dr. Edwin 
Mims, of Vanderbilt University, who coupled with 
his congratulations the prediction that the democra- 

tic spirit of this great Commonwealth would be re- 
flected in President Graham's administration ; Judge 
James S. Manning, who foresaw abundant prosperity 
and success for the new administration. 
The Inaugural Reception 
At nine o'clock in the Bynnm Gymnasium, a bril- 
liant reception was given the University's visitors 
and guests. The room was beautifully decorated and 
lighted and the occasion was a most delightful one. 


That the University received marked consideration 
on the part of learned societies and other educational 
institutions, is clearly demonstrated by the large 
number of representatives present. In addition to 
the members of the Legislative Committees, of the 
'Council of State, and of the Supreme Court, who 
were present in a body, one hundred and twenty- 
seven persons were delegated as representatives by 
their institutions. The institutions represented are 
arranged in the order of the seniority of their or-

Pictures and Scenes 

Despite the fact that the moraing was slightly 
hazy, the camera man was everywhere in evidence 
with the result that many individuals, groups, and 
general scenes were splendidly caught. The moving 
picture man was also here with his apparatus, and 
in the near future the reel reproducing the Academic 
Procession will be going the circuit of the movies. 
An order for ai;y of the small- sized pictures appear- 
ing in this issue or complete sets of 10, or 20 of the 
best views, if scut to the Business Manager of Tjie 
Review^ and accompanied with a check, will be 
promptly handled, the rate per picture being ten cents 

Printed Proceedings . 

The Eevieav has made no effort to reproduce any 
of the addresses delivered at the inauguration as 
the complete formal proceedings will be issued at an 
early date by the University. A single copy will 
be supplied to alumni if they will address E. E. 
Rankin, Chapel Hill, N. C. Additional copies may 
be secured at the rate of twenty-five cents each. 
Orders may be placed now to be filled on or after ]\[ay 

Important Discoveries 

Discoveries growing out of the functions compris- 
ing the inauguration and worthy of special note 
were fairly numerous. The first is that Swain 
Hall hereafter on alumni day can well be thrown open 
to the wives of the alumni. The presence of ladies 
at the inaugural luncheon added greatly to the pleas- 
ure of the occasion. 

It was also clearly demonstrated that the dollar- 
the-plate scheme, to which members of the faculty 
and alumni were a party at the luncheon, works to the 
very decided improvement of the menu. Hereafter, 
this plan should be adopted for the Alumni Luncheon 
and the hour or hours spent at the luncheon should 
be happy and thoroughly satisfying. The dollar-the- 
course plan will go a long way in bringing that about. 

Where shall the next commencement reception and 
the next and the next be held ? Certainly not in the 
Library after the convincing demonstration that the 
Bynum Gymnasium is far and away superior to it, 
and lends itself splendidly to that purpose- The 
decorations, lights, the space, not to mention the 
facilities for serving refreshments and the conven- 
ient location of dressipg rooms, solve what has been 
one of the University's most difficult problems of 

Another of these difficult problems to be effectively 
solved was that of the proper decoration of the 
various halls in which the exercises were held. Here- 

tofore Memorial Hall has successfully defied all ef- 
fort to make it attractive and give it a happy, gala 
appearance. But the background of massed green- 
ery, together with the large center piece of flags, 
wrought a transforuuition which made its appearance 
in keeping with the fine spirit of the day. The dis- 
covery here, which included Swain Hall and the 
Gymnasium as well, was the finding of Mrs. Pratt 
and Mrs. Henderson. They, together with members 
of the committee and volunteer helpers, brought about 
the happy change in all the halls used for inaugural 
purposes. Their contribution was distinctive, and it 
should be sought on future University occasions. 

Committee on Arrangements 

The inaugural committee needs no formal con- 
gratulations. It witnessed the satisfactory outcome 
of the plans which it had been maturing since Novem- 
ber. Its personnel follows: Archibald Henderson, 
chairman; A. S. Wheeler, secretary; Joseph Hyde 
Pratt, A. H. Patterson, L. R. Wilson, J. G. deR. 
Hamilton, George Howe, and C. H. Herty. Sup- 
plementing these was C T. Woolen, who served with 
distinction in many places. 

The Three Hundred 

Thomas C. Boushall, in speaking for the student 
body, alluded to the spirit of co-operation by which it 
has been signally actuated during the year. That 
spirit was finely exhibited at luncheon and supper on 
the 21st when three hundred boarders at Swain Hall 
gave up their seats in order that the inaugural lun- 
cheon might be served and that there might be quiet 
in the hall while the toastmaster presented the speak- 
ers and greetings to the University were being offered. 
Letters, Telegrams, and Press Notices 

N"o event in the history of the University has ever 
been made the subject of such wide and favorable 
note by the press of the country as the inauguration 
of President Graham. Letters, telegrams, news 
stories, and editorials throughout the entire country, 
which The Review does not have space to reproduce, 
have been received at the Hill and will go into the 
Inauguration scrap book which is being compiled for 
the Library under the direction of Dr. J. G. deR. 


The third annual series of inter-collegiate debates 
between Carolina, Virginia, and Johns Hopkins was 
held April 24th. Carolina won from Virginia but 
lost to Hopkins. Hopkins won both debates and Vir- 
ginia lost both. 



Representing Carolina, G. A. Marti'u, of East 
Bend, and Wade Komegay, of Chapel Hill, met Vir- 
ginia at Baltimore. They upheld the affirmative 
side of the query "Resolved, That the policy of colo- 
nial expansion is desirable for the modern State." 
They received the unanimous vote of the judges. 

At Charlottesville, C. E. Ijlackstock, of Weaver- 
ville, and W. B. Umstead, of Bahama, defended the 
negative side of the query against Hopkins. They 
were defeated by a unanimous vote of the judges. 

The debate between Hopkins and Virginia was 
held in Gerrard Hall. President E. K. Graham pre- 
sided and J. F. Hackler acted as secretary. The de- 
cision of the judges, who were members of the Uni- 
versity faculty, stood four to one in favor of the 
Hopkins debaters. C. IST. Cox and B. C. Taylor 
represented the affirmative for Virginia, while A. 
M. Warren and T. J. Tingly represented the nega- 
tive for Hopkins. Immediately after the debate a 
reception was given the visiting teams in the Y. M. 
O. A. 


Carolina won the second game from Wake Forest 
in Raleigh by the score of 10 to 0. Shields was at 
his best. He was reinforced by the swift fielding of 
the whole team and the heavy hitting of Houig, Pat- 
terson and Bruce. Lewis got two hits and Zollicoffer 
a two bagger. Ellis who started for Wake Forest 
was replaced by Moore but the story had been told 
when Honig hit a homerun with three on.

'Carolina lost the third and deciding game from 
Virginia by the score of 5 to 3. Williams, who had 
been successful as a relief pitcher in Greensboro and 
as the victorious speedman in Durham, was driven 
from the mound in the second inning at Charlottes- 
ville. Shields replaced Williams and held the Vir- 
ginians to one additional run. Zollicoffer counted 
on errors in the third. Honig for Carolina hit a 
homerun in the fourth and hits by Bruce and Bailey 
added the other run in the ninth.

For the second consecutive time the Friendship 
High School won the inter-scholastic track meet of 
Xorth Carolina. Forty high school boys participated 
with the following result: 

Friendship 40, Greensboro 35, Graham 25, and

Indicatious are that the reunions of the classes of 
1865. 1890, 1S95, 1900, 190o, 1910, and 1914, to 
be held at commencement will be successful in every 
respect. A great many members of these classes have 
signitied their intention of being present in letters to 
their respective class secretaries and to the alumni 
organization committee of the University. 

Tuesday, June 1, is Alumni Day. It will be 
given over entirely to the alumni, and the reunions 
will be the most interesting features of the day. 
At the general meeting on Tuesday morning each 
class will have a few minutes at its disposal. The 
alumni luncheon will be held at 1 :30 o'clock Tues- 
day afternoon. After the luncheon there will be one 
or more baseball games between teams representing 
various classes. During intermissions alumni 
"stunts" will be pulled off. 

Tuesday night will be spent in such ways as the 
meml^ers of the classes prefer. Class dinners, ban- 
(]uets, or smokers will probably be the order of the

The annual Fresh-Soph debate between the Di and 
Phi Societies was held April 28th in Gerrard Hall. 
The Di representatives were victorious by a two to 
one vote of the judges. The query was "Resolved, 
That a literacy test for immigrants seeking admis- 
sion to the United- States is undesirable." W. H. 
Stephenson, of Raleigh, and Oliver Rand, of Smith- 
field, rejaresenting the Phi, upheld the affirmative, 
and C. L. Snider, of Denton, and R. M. Ross, Jr., 
of Shelby, representing the Di, defended the nega- 
tive. The judges were Messrs. W. DeB. McNider, 
H. ]\I. Dargan, and H. W. Starr. 


Dr. Henry Louis Smith spoke before the Young 
Men's Christian Association Tuesday night April 
20th. His subject was "Personality" and in its in- 
teresting development he held the rapt attention of 
the large body of students present. Overflowing

Today tlie University of North Carolina establish- 
ed as its new President Dr. Edward Kidder Graham, 
a man quite young yet of almost exactly the same 
mumber of years which the University itself has lived 
since its reconstruction in 1875. By his inaugural 
address President Graham voiced not only the larger 
traditions which have come down from the Univer- 
sity's earlier past — a history that began almost with 
the history of the United States — but also the signi- 
ficance of the reconstructive years which he himself 
has known and helped to render effective. Dr. Gra- 
ham appeared abundantly conscious of the leadership 
which the universities of the South must assume in 
the present years when, the foundations being rebuilt, 
the structure itself of material and mental prosperity 
waits to be reared. 

President Graham, as he surveyed the immediate 
needs which the University of North Carolina must 
seek to meet among the people of its State, the new 
possibilities in learning and research which the 
South's recovered vitality opens, discovered the mod- 
ern ideal of symmetry which the institution must 
constantly raise for itself. Thus, though North 
Carolina needs vocational training. Dr. Graham re- 
minded his fellows that "democracy has come to 

mean more than an aggregate of vocations, grouped 
for the ijurpose of material exploitation. The whole 
efforts of the productive state is to unify its life, not 
by casting out material good, but by interpreting and 
using it in its symmetrical upbuilding. The state 
university is not so much concerned with doing a 
certain set of things, as infusing the way of doing 
all things with a certain ideal. Not by spasmodic 
reform, not by sentiment, nor by the expiations of 
philanthropy, but by understanding, criticism, re- 
search and applied knowledge it would reveal the 
unity of the channels through which life flows, and 
minister to the purification of its currents." Here 
is no mere rhetoric — though it were wrong to pass 
Dr. Graham's speech without some comment on the 
eloquent flow of its diction — but an ideal whereon 
North Carolina's new President may carry his col- 
lege to fine and practical attainment. — Boston Tran- 


The inauguration yesterday of Edward Kidder 
Graham as president of the University of North 
Carolina calls attention to the notable progress of 
that oldest of state universities in making itself an 
efficient servant of the commonwealth. The work 
of Mr. Graham, as Dean and Acting-President, has 
for nearly ten years been an example to other South- 
ern institutions of the same sort. While the activities 
of the University have followed the general lines laid 
down in middle west education, they have in some 
ways been original. Night schools have been estab- 
lished for negroes, correspondence courses for indus- 
trial workers, summer school courses for public school 
teachers, rural life conferences for those interested 
in the improvement of rural conditions and a perma- 
nent system of county and state highways. Package 
libraries reach nearly 500 communities, and a series 
of extension bulletins has been scattered broadcast to 
interest the State in questions relating to school, 
home, and city and state government. The 'communi- 
ty service week' initiated by the University has now 
been made an official State event. In his inaugural 
yesterday President Graham indicated that the ex- . 
tension service would be given increased attention, 
and already a special bureau has been provided to 
carry it on. What has been done thus far has been 
upon an income probably less than one-tenth that of 
the universities of Illinois or Wisconsin. In other 
Southern states — Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Miss- 
issippi — there is a field as wide as in North Caro- 
lina : their uuder-nounrished state universities should 
find inspiration in the work of their neighbor. — New 
York Evening Post. 




During the week beginning April 26, Professor 
William M. Thornton, Dean of the School of Engi- 
neering, University of Virginia, lectured here as 
first exchange lecturer on the foundation established 
for the Universities of South Carolina, Vanderbilt, 
Virginia and Xorth Carolina. 

On the evening of April 26. Professor Thornton 
gave a general lecture in Gerrard Hall on the Panama 
Canal. On account of his personal acquaintance with 
General Goethals and his knowledge of the details of 
the canal, acquired during a visit to Panama, he was 
enabled to speak with authority and intimacy upon 
the subject. In especial he dwelt upon the important 
part played by Southern men in this great engineer- 
ing undertaking, and the wonderful work of sanita- 
tion which had been done on the Isthmus. An in- 
spiring story, this, to all Americans, and told by one 
who knows. 

On the evening of April 27, in the Peabody Build- 
ing, Professor Thornton spoke before the Elisha 
Mitchell Scientific Society on the topic: "The Educa- 
tion a Young Man !N^eeds to Fit Him to Become an 
Engineer." The lecturer treated the subject funda- 
mentally, analyzed conditions in the high school, sub- 
jected certain prevailing practices to criticism, and 
laid down concisely his conception of the basic prin- 
ciples of engineering education and jjractice. 

In his technical lectures, the first of which was 
given in the Chemical Lecture Room, the remainder 
in the Peabody Building, Professor Thornton spoke 
on "Accelerated ^Methods of Analysis as Applied to 
the Strength of Materials." The first lecture was 
devoted to an historical summary of the development 
of the subject of mechanics of materials, with some 
analysis of the work of the principal elasticians. In 
his remaining lectures, which were more technically 
treated, he took up a fundamental problem, that of 
the deflection of a beam under varying conditions of 
loading, and studied it from three points of view: 
the graphical method, the resilience method, and the 
method of least work. By means of demonstrations 
conspicious for simplicity. Professor Thornton ex- 
hibited with singular Incidity the underlying prin- 
ciples of the subject and dwelt upon the necessity for 
the cultivatioTi of the scientific spirit of self-reliance 
which arises from a mastery of those underlying prin- 

The advantages accruing from this new develop- 
ment in the idea of university extension have been 
most happily and strikingly exhibited in the visit of 
Professor Thornton. The spirit of scholarship has 
been exemplified, the value and importance of re- 

search have been accentuated, and intellectual in- 
terest and curiosity have been stimulated in a high 
degree. The University of North Carolina places 
faith in this new system of intranational exchange, 
which bids fair to produce many of the beneficial re- 
sults which have arisen out of the great systems of 
international exchange. 


Dr. Louis R. Wilson was elected a member of the 
executive committee of the National Association for 
University Extension at the conference of that organ- 
ization held at Madison, Wis., March 10-13. 

Dr. Richard Burton, of the University of Minne- 
sota and president of the Dramatic League of Amer- 
ica, lectured in Gerrard Hall Tuesday night, April 
6th. His subject was "Bernard Shaw, the Wittiest 
Man Alive." 

The sessions of the Southern Conference for Edu- 
cation and Industry, which were held at Chattanooga, 
Tenn., April 27-30, were attended by Professors N. 
W. Walker, L. A. Williams, C. H. Herty, and Zebu- 
Ion Judd, from the University faculty.
