THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Volume III 



JUNE, 1915 



Number 9 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



The year 1914r-15 as it passes in quick review 
exhibits in its crowded procession certain unique 
events and qualities that set it apart 



THE YEAR 



in the calendar of years. The regis- 



tration overleaped itself and fell well on the other 
side of 1000. The football team moved up into the 
circle of victory over Georgia and Yanderbilt. The 
Mott Meetings in the essential matters of preparation, 
sustained interest, spiritual sanity, and afterflowing 
results stand out as among the most remarkable stu- 
dent religious meetings ever held in America. Pro- 
fessor Taft presented the presidency most interest- 
ingly in thought and most delightfully iu person. 
The state-wide high school debate representing a con- 
test over the State of 1000 chosen speakers was 
brought tn a splendid climax in Memorial Hall be- 
fore 1500 people in the victory of Lalla Eook and 
Ethel — electric with prophecy! The Inauguration 
challenged the ear of the nation and Carolina stood 
revealed under a friendly scrutiny in news and edi- 
torial columns as making a new and distinctive con- 
tribution to the relation of the people to their Uni- 
versity. 

nnn 

During Commencement the pleasing fact that 
classes are being organized along permanent lines, 
and that alumni solidarity is grow- 
ing was happily attested. The class 
of 1910 came back to the Hill to 
pay honor to its fallen president, who, during his 
undergraduate stay mi the campus and since his leav- 
ing, honored the class by his splendid character and 
manhood. Realizing the looseness of the tic binding 
it to Alma mater, the unorganized class of 1895 per- 
fected an organization during its commencement 
visit. In the future 1895 proposes to rally all of its 
strength to lie used by the University as it ><•(■> fit. 
The solidarity, the cheer, the forward look of 1905, 
inspired confidence everywhere, and in addition to 
(lie check fur $1000 which it handed over to Presi- 
dent (indium, it left scattered here and there copies of 
its handbook just issued through its permanent secre 
tary, W. T. Shore. In this particular, L913 is again 
at the front. Through K. R. Rankin and A. A. Mc- 
Kay, it is mit in an interesting record in which all 
the activities of the class are spiritedly recounted. 



CLASS 
RECORDS 



THE ALUMNI 
LUNCHEON 



The class is planning for its big reunion in 191S and 
is already practicing some of the stunts it is to present 
mi Alumni Day three years hence. 

nnn 

"The students of the University of North Caro- 
lina are noted for doing clever stunts, and Tuesday 
afternoon they did some during the 
alumni luncheon in Swain Hall 
which take rank with their finest 
performances," said Colonel Olds today. "As the first 
course of the attractive luncheon was finished a stu- 
dent arose and informed the veterans that the boys of 
today were going to show them some stunts and 
then he put on an admirably arranged program with 
black-face dancers, female impersonators who showed 
the last word in dancing steps, acrobats, musician-. 
singers and various others while the splendid Richard- 
son Orchestra conducted by an alumnus of the Uni- 
versity gave a program which literally sparkled. 
There was round after round of applause by the hun- 
dreds of people in the big and stately dining ball, 
brilliantly lighted and effectively decorated with pine 
trees and native flowers, perhaps a fourth of those 
present being ladies. All agreed that it was the 
most attractive luncheon and program as well yet 
furnished at the University and that it will set the 
pace for those to come." — Raleigh Evening Times. 

nnn 

The outstanding reunion of this Commencement 
was that of the class of 1905. It was the largest and 
jolliest bunch of the old grads on the 
Hill. They really "reuned." At 
every occasion they were there in a 
body — all there. It was good to see Nat Townsend 
again, the greatest end of his day,- -the day of 17 
to <>. 1 1 to L2, and If. to 0. Wright and King, 
intercollegiate debaters. Eigdon of whose four strings 
of ones our own present day Newsom is reminiscent. 
Otie Ross, -lake Wilson, Mill Shore. Nichols, and 
the resl had a good time together. 

The clas> of L910 had a g I reunion. A score of 

this cla<s were back in lively fellowship. "Charity" 
Stacy. "Sap" Ilvmaii. "Pat" Hamilton, Hoke Ram- 
saur, Joe Nixon, "Nick" Plummer, and a dozen 

Others renewed the tie that binds.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Earlier in the year attention was directed to the 

physical irnju'overnent of the campus. Elsewhere in 

this issue further evidence is fur- 

ADD1TIONAL n i sue d through pictures of the new 
IMPROVE- ., . ° \ .,,. , - ., 

MENTS steps to the law building and ot the 

western entrance to the campus. 
Preceding the Inauguration, the old buildings near 
Swain Hall were cleared away and attractive walk 
ways leading to the dining hall were laid out. Strik- 
ing as these changes have been, they have been sur- 
passed by the transformation recently wrought in the 
interior of buildings. The decorations of Swain Hall 
and the Gymnasium during the recent festivities have 
been exquisite, and the interior coat of ivory and 
mahogany given the chapel removes it from the im- 
possible to the genuinely attractive. 

DDD 

Observing alumni can find many ways of co-operat- 
ing with the University in its work. Two ways 
which are now especially worthy of 
note are by helping young men, who 
otherwise must drop out of college, return to the Hill 
this fall. If there is such a student in your commu- 
nity, look him up. In a few years he will become a 
producer and will then return the aid given him. 



ALUMNI AID 



In all probability there are a number of students 
who are going to college for the first time this fall. 
Their attention may well be drawn to the University 
and what it offers. 

DDD 

With this issue The Review ends its third year 

having issued during 1914-15 a series of nine regular 

numbers. In spite of tight money 

mim T _ . _,„„ and the consequent difficulty in se- 
PUBLICATION . ' , , . . . 

curing subscribers and advertising, it 

has been self-sustaining, and through a continuance 
of strict business methods it hopes to become an even 
better publication in 1915-16. E. R. Rankin, busi- 
ness manager for the past two years, will represent it 
during the summer, and the alumni are urged to give 
it, through him, an increased financial support. 

DDD 

The following classes have reunions at the next 
commencement: 1891, 1S96, 1901, 1906, 1911, 
1915. Now is the time to start a 
successful reunion. Don't wait and 
don't leave it to somebody else. Get 
out a bulletin of the class, and lay plans for having 
every member of the class back. 



CLASS 
REUNIONS 



THE ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTIETH COMMENCEMENT 



The exercises of the one hundred and twentieth 
commencement of the University began at 11 o'clock 
on Sunday, May 30th, at which hour the baccalau- 
reate sermon was delivered in Gerrard Hall by Rev. 
W. D. Moss, of the Presbyterian Church of Chapel 
Hill. Taking for his text "Marvel not that I said 
unto you, ye must be born again. The wind bloweth 
where it listeth ; thou hearest the sound thereof but 
canst not tell whence it cometh or whither it goeth. 
So is every one that is born of the spirit," Mr. Moss 
developed the idea that man is in the nature of 
things a spiritual being. In doing this he said in 
part: 

"A man is a spiritual being living in a physical 
body, in a physical world. That is Jesus Christ's 
doctrine of a man ; and in the Christian doctrine a 
religious man who realizes his physical-spiritual pedi- 
gree is a citizen of both the world of senses and of the 
spirit. Man and God, God and man ! There is the 
combination ; and the history of man is the record of 
how this strange, wondrous union has been realized. 
The union has never been realized but once. The 
blessed story of the Incarnation is our sacred heritage 
forever. 



"And the message runs that we are to live and can 
live as He lived in the world. T and the Father are 
one.' 'He that seeth Me hath seen the Father.' That 
is His program for Himself and that is His program 
for His followers. Now when we become conscious 
of that, when we realize that our life is one part 
physical and one part spiritual : when we realize that 
our life is a physical-spiritual thing and begin to take 
up our citizenship in the spiritual as we have already 
done in the physical — that is religion and that is the 
Christian religion. In this sense religion is not some- 
thing tacked to a man. It is a man's true normal life. 
It is like the wind. The wind is a normal function- 
ing of nature; and the spiritual is the normal func- 
tioning of a man. Sin is the abnormal thing. Sin 
is suicide. Religion is as normal as the air. 

"The spiritual man is a man who circulates freely 
in the world. He can be an American citizen and yet 
wish that neighboring states may work out their 
destinies in keen rivalry with the United States. 
President Wilson illustrated in his speech before the 
Pan-American conference this spiritual type of man 
which we have in our civic life of today. 

"The spiritual man can be a religious man and yet 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

a man of the world. He can do business but do so in 
the practice of the sermon on the mount. He can be 
a scientist and big enough to associate himself with 
the organized life of religion. He can be a devout 
church member and yet not afraid to think. He can 
be an individual in his community, respected, be- 
loved and at the same time the close, sympathetic 
friend of the lame and halt and blind of the world of 
consciousness, always a helper and never a dis- 
courager ; a booster and not a knocker ; a construct- 
ive power in his time and place." 

Y. M. C. A. Sermon 

The sermon before the Young Men's Christian 
Association was preached at S o'clock by Dr. G. T. 
Rowe, of Memorial Methodist Church of High Point, 
with Francis Clarkson, of the Association, presiding. 
In complete harmony with the sermon of the morn- 



ing, the evening sermon was an exposition of the 
necessity of making one's way in the world of prac- 
tical affairs. Using as his text the words "Not 
slothful in business," Dr. Rowe presented in a mas- 
terly way the idea that in the physical world every 
man should work to the end that he might be self- 
supporting. Personal efficiency is the prime requi- 
site of modern civilization. But inasmuch as a man 
is a spiritual being as well as a physical, he must not 
only adjust himself to his physical environment and 
sustain himself, but he must meet the test of the 
highest development by bringing himself into com- 
plete adjustment with the laws of the spiritual uni- 
verse. 

Both sermons were delivered by men long in close 
touch with college life and were heard with the 
greatest interest. 



SENIOR CLASS EXERCISES 



Though forced to abandon the gathering around 
the Davie Poplar on account of the downpour of 
rain on Class Day, the Seniors, according to the 
custom of many years, met in chapel at 9 :30 with 
Dr. Battle in a final prayer service and for the 
election of permanent officers. Dr. Battle held up 
before the class the fine qualities predominating in 
the character of David, and urged them to lead lives 
of patient industry, sobriety, and honesty if they 
wished to achieve lasting success. 

Permanent Officers 

Immediately following the prayer service, the class 
went into the election of permanent officers, 0. C. 
Nance, of High Point, presiding, in the absence of 
George Eutsler, president of 1915, who was too 



unwell on Class Day to take part in the exercises. 
The election resulted in the choosing of the following 
officers: Robert A. Fitzgerald, of Whitsett, presi- 
dent ; Misses Rachel Lynch and Alma Stone, of 
Chapel Hill, first and second vice-presidents; and 
B. L. Field, of Greensboro, secretary-treasurer. 

Adjourning to Gerrard Hall, the class carried out 
the interesting part of the day's program preceding 
the Mangum oratorical contest. W. P. Fuller, of 
Florida, summarized the history of the class, em- 
phasizing particularly the growth in student self- 
government on the campus during the stay of the 
class at the Hill, and the growth of the reach of the 
University throughout the State. In both of these 
forward movements he showed that 1915 had taken

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



a helpful part. Following Mr. Fuller, B. L. Field, of 
Greensboro, presented the plan which the class has 
determined on in making its gift to the University. 
This plan, like that of a number of previous classes, 
contemplates the raising of $25 per member to be 
given to the University in 1920 at the fifth anniver- 
sary. The money then given will he used as a loan 
fund and placed at the disposal of worthy students. 

Mangum Medal Contest 

President Graham then introduced the speakers 
contending for the Mangum Medal. The representa- 
tives of the class and their subjects were : ( '. B. 
Woltz, of Dohson — "Democracy and Its Relation to 
Law"; .1. V. Whitfield, of Wallace— "The American 
Tenant" ; L. B. Gunter, of Holly Springs— "An Ex- 
tended Vision"; T. ('. Boushall, of Raleigh — "The 
Mission of Industrial Democracy." The honor, the 



announcement of which was reserved until Wednes- 
day morning, fell to C. B. Woltz. 

Davie Poplar Abandoned 

At '> :30, forced to abandon the picturesque meeting 
around the Davie Poplar, the class met in Gerrard 
Mall for its concluding exercises as the guardians of 
the campus. -I. S. Bryan, statistician, read the sta- 
tistical record of the ill members who entered, 85 
of whom were then assembled as the "fit survivors" 
of the four-year struggle to smoke the pipe of peace. 
R. G. Fitzgerald foretold the destiny of the gradu- 
ates; T. ('. Boushall, through T. I. Boger and "Dog- 
gie" Trenchard as executors, disposed of the worldly 

g Is of 1915; and D. II. Killifer read the class 

poem. The pipe then went the rounds and nineteen 
fifteen gave place to nineteen sixteen. 



INTER-SOCIETY BANQUET 



The Inter-Society banquet in recent years has 
fallen on Monday evening and regularly proves one 
of the most interesting features of commencement 
week. Loyalty to the Di and Phi is undying, and the 
former members never miss the opportunity of show- 
ing their appreciation of the kindly service rendered 
them by these splendid makers of men. The banquet 
of 1915 was presided over by C. E. Blackstock, of 
Buncombe, as toastmaster. B. L. Field and L. B. 
Gunter, members of the Di and Phi respectively, 
spoke as members of the student body. Mr. Field 
spoke in behalf of the societies, answering the criti- 
cism made during the year that the societies were not 
filling their high mission as they had in former years. 
He showed that the}- were in splendid condition, that 
they were the great conservators of democracy on the 
campus, and that they were as vital in every phase of 
their activity as they had ever been. From them he 
expected to see emanate the same power of self-devel- 
opment by which they had been characterized in the 
past, and to them he declared the conscientious so- 
ciety member could confidently look today for ser- 
vice of the highest order. Mr. G\inter's theme was 
the society member in politics. He defined the poli- 
tician and the statesman and urged the men who had 
received their training for citizenship in the societies 
to he actuated in all of their duties as citizens by the 
ideals of the statesman. 

Greetings from former members were brought by 
C. C. Bernhardt, of the class of 1905, and Archie 
Dees, of the class of 1911. Mr. Bernhardt, who filled 
the place assigned V. S. Bryant, spoke appreciately 



of the influence of the societies and voiced the pleas- 
ure of all the alumni on being aide to attend this 
get-together meeting. Mr. Dees spoke of the necessity 
of every man working if the State and nation were 
to go forward. His admonition to the men going out 
into life was to acquire knowledge daily and especial- 
ly to put such knowledge as they had already ac- 
quired to the test of hard, thoroughgoing work. He 
spoke with remarkable ease and power of conviction 
and was heard with keen interest. 

The principal speaker of the evening was Senator 
F. M. Simmons, who, by way of preface, declared 
that while education had always been a cause which 
lay (dose to his heart, in the press of affairs he had 
rarely had the opportunity to manifest his real 
and abiding interest in it. The opportunity of 
speaking on this occasion was, consequently, doubly 
pleasing to him because it gave him the privilege of 
speaking to the students of the University on this 
vital theme. 

Declaring that neither the physical man nor the 
physical world had undergone appreciable change 
during the long centuries, he attributed the great 
progress of the recent past to the brain and heart of 
num. Continuing, he said : 

"The only thing in this world that has progressed 
by virtue of its own inherent powers, the only thing in 
this world that can in the nature of things, so pro- 
gress is man, and the only thing in man that has so 
progressed is the immortal spark which quickens alike 
the mind, heart and soul. These material things and 
achievements to which we point with such justifiable 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

pride are but the fruits of man's prowess and occular 
proof and measure of the height and depth and width 
of the intellectual and spiritual progress which he has 
made under the benign influences which have liber- 
ated and stimulated into fuller fruition his divinely 
appointed faculties. 

"The vital and practical question therefore is what 
has brought about this newly awakened mental and 
physical activity and efficiency which has in a little 
over fifty years advanced the world more than two 
thousand years ahead of its former self. 

"Neither the occasion nor the time allotted to me 
tonight will permit elaborate discussion of this in- 
teresting query, but I confidently believe when we 
have gone to the bottom of the matter we will find the 
answer written in two words, namely, Education and 
Freedom. 

"Universal education, not only the right, but the 
opportunity of every man, not through one or two, 
but through a thousand agencies, in the school house, 
and outside the school house, in the college and out- 
side the college and university, to learn all he wants 
to learn and is capable of learning of what there is to 
learn. 

"Freedom, not only of the body and its members, 
but freedom of thought and action ; freedom of initi- 
ative, construction and execution; freedom in am- 
bition, aspiration and living — that freedom in short 
which makes every man a self-controlling, self-gov- 
erning, self-responsible entity." 

The banquet was served in Swain Hall, the menu 
having been prepared by the chef of the hall and 
served by thirty members of the student body. Clivers 
for three hundred were laid. Music was furnished 



by the Don Richardson orchestra, and the decora- 
tions ami lights were arranged by the local commit- 
tee — R. ('. Vaughan, W. R. Hunter, F. II. Cooper, 
W. \i Taylor. L. B. Gunter, and YV. P. Fuller. After 
the banquet the members adjourned to after-meetings 
in the Di and Phi halls for further speech making. 



CAROLINA JOINS SOUTHERN ATHLETIC 
CONFERENCE 

The faculty of the University recently accepted the 
general regulations as to athletic eligibility adopted 
by the (.'(inference of Southern state universities held 
at Columbia, S. ('., January. 1915. These, regula- 
ti'ins arc- all embraced in our previous regulations 
with one exception which provides that beginning 
September, 1916, no student will he eligible to take 
part in any intercollegiate contest who has not been in 
residence for one year at the university he represents. 

According to the interpretation of the conference 
the term one year is interpreted as not less than six 
months. The University accepted the regulations 
with the provision that under our present division of 
two terms of equal length we will define one year as 
beginning at least within the first week of the second 
term. The only difference between the new rules and 
our previous regulations is that the one year rule will 
now apply to all students whereas it formerly applied 
only to athletes from other colleges. This new re- 
quirement is a great forward step and will require 
every student to serve a period of probation as a con- 
dition to his athletic eligibility.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
ALUMNI DAY 



The Old Grads in Numbers Find the Day the Most Interesting of Commencement 



Alumni Day was opened with the address by Mr. 
R. B. W Connor, '99, of Raleigh, Secretary of the 
North Carolina Historical Commission. Mr. Con- 
nor's theme was the relation of the State to the Uni- 
versity which he approached from the standpoint of 
a citizen of the State. He sounded an aggressive 
fighting note justified by a convincing marshalling 
and comparison of facts on the appropriations and 
equipment of Southern state universities. 

Child and Servant of State 

At the outset in his address, Mr. Connor took the 
position that the University was both the child and 
servant of the State, and as such should not, as has 
frequently been the case, be forced to make brick 
without straw or denied the sustenance essential to 
its growth and vitality. He showed that among the 
State institutions the University was the only one 
which had not been built outright, from the ground 
up, by the State. The University, as a matter of 
fact, had rounded out a full century before a single 
one of its buildings was erected by the State, and of 
the twenty-four buildings now on its campus, only 
six were paid for in whole or in part by the State. 
Similarly, of the $1,137,700 invested in the Uni- 
versity plant, only $341,500 had been contributed 
by the State. 

More Equipment Needed 

In speaking of the equipment of the University, 
Mr. Connor gave it as his opinion that the difference 
between the equipment needed for the work expected 
of it and what it actually possessed, had never been 
so great as today. This was demonstrated in that 
some of the rooms in the dormitories were too poorly 
heated for occupancy, despite the fact that the Uni- 
versity could furnish rooms for only 478 of its 1019 
students. Further proof of this was to be found in 
that many class rooms were pressed into service con- 
tinuously without admitting of proper ventilation 
between recitations; that departments having enroll- 
ments of 300, 500, and even 800, were compelled to 
shift from building to building in search of lecture 
rooms ; and that even unsuitable, unequipped quar- 
ters such as the chapel and the basement of the 
Alumni Building had to be pressed into service for 
the holding of classes. The most striking lack in 
this particular, however, was furnished in the light, 
heat, and water plant, which, throughout the year, 



according to the findings of the State Board of In- 
ternal Improvements, was threatened with a complete 
breakdown and consequent shut down in all the ac- 
tivities of the University. 

At the very time, however, when the need for 
equipment was greatest; when new burdens had 
been imposed by the increase in enrollment from 887 
in 1913-14 to 1019 in 1914-15; when increase in the 
physical plant of the University was demanded in 
order that it might properly respond to the complex 
needs of a rapidly growing State and answer the call 
to make its campus in reality Statewide, Mr. Connor 
said the State, through its General Assembly, decided 
that it should not have one cent to be used for this 
purpose. The amount appropriated in 1915 was 
specifically set apart for the payment of land notes 
and not for further improvement. 

Maintenance Fund Inadequate 

In the matter of providing maintenance for the 
University, Mr. Connor maintained that the State 
had been even more remiss. He referred to an in- 
vestigation conducted by the United States Bureau 
of Education for the year ending June 30, 1913, 
which showed the "total working incomes" of twelve 
state-supported southern universities as follows : 
Texas, $625,509; Virginia, $283,237; Louisiana, 
$275,743; Georgia, $246,770; Tennessee, $229,288; 
Florida, $227,745; Oklahoma, $225,08S ; North 
Carolina, $206,194; Arkansas, $169,274; Alabama, 
$160,796; South Carolina, $139,382; Mississippi, 
$129,750. In this list North Carolina was out-rank- 
ed by all her sisters except Arkansas, Alabama, South 
Carolina and Mississippi. In another and even more 
important respect she fell below even these laggards. 
Deducting specific appropriations made for building- 
purposes, the University of North Carolina received 
annually $9 less per student for maintenance and in- 
struction than any of the other eleven southern state 
universities, and $98 less per student than the av- 
erage. On this basis the southern state universities 
ranked as follows: Florida, $550; Georgia, $353; 
Louisiana, $336 ; Virginia, $335 ; Texas, $268 ; Ok- 
lahoma, $245 ; Mississippi, $245 ; Tennessee, $239 ; 
Alabama, $238; South Carolina, $222; Arkansas, 
$201; North Carolina, $192. 

Fine Record Established 

Mr. Connor expressed his pride in the fine record 
which the University had made in spite of the "aus- 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



237 



tere economy" which it had Keen forced to practice. 
But in the fact that it had stood in the forefront of 
American universities along with Texas and Vir- 
ginia, while receiving $76 and $143 less per student 
for maintenance than they, he saw a grave danger. 
He realized that the University, while it had been 
able to achieve this under special stimulation, could 
not maintain the position of rivalry it had held, and 
that by having to give to Virginia and Vanderbilt 
and Texas such members of its faculty as Smith and 
Mima and Royster, without ability to draw from those 
institutions in return, it would have to fall back to a 
second place. As an institution it must either pro- 
gress or retrogress. It could not survive if it must 
play an all give and no take game. 

Duty of the Alumni 

In concluding, 3,1 r. Connor appealed to the alumni 
to exert themselves in bringing about a better under- 
standing of the University by the State and in aiding 
it in its enlarging work : 

"Our duty as alumni of the University and as citi- 
zens of North Carolina seems to me to be clear and 
unmistakable. It is for us, first of all, as alumni, to 
satisfy the craving of our alma mater for sympathetic 
understanding, and afterwards, by becoming in our 
own persons the representatives and exponents of her 
ideals, to seek to bring others to a like comprehension. 
It is for us, to realize the splendid visions animating 
this University and the unlimited possibilities which 
they promise for the education and culture and social 
welfare of Xorth Carolina, and afterwards to seek to 



bring others to a like realization. It is for us, to con- 
vince ourselves of the wisdom of the State's chang- 
ing her financial policy toward this institution from 
one which considers chiefly bow little the University 
can live on, to one which considers chiefly how much 
it needs, and afterwards to seek to bring others to a 
like conviction. We must present these needs to the 
people of Xorth Carolina with all the earnestness and 
enthusiasm that our cause justifies and the high un- 
selfish aspirations of our alma mater merit. In prose- 
cuting that cause, we must consult our hopes more 
and our fears less; in the service of the University 
we must cease to be passive and become aggressive 
agents. We must be forward-looking, we must study 
the University in terms of the needs of the State it is 
designed to serve, we must formulate large and com- 
prehensive plans for its future development, and we 
must lay these plans, these hopes, these ambitions 
before the peojfle of Xorth Carolina with confidence 
in their prompt and whole-hearted co-operation. I 
believe the people of Xorth Carolina will welcome 
just such service, just such intelligent leadership 
as the University, and the University alone, can give. 
But they must be made to realize that the University 
can neither serve effectively nor lead intelligently, 
hampered by a policy that limits her to an equipment 
barely sufficient for her immediate tasks, and sup- 
plies her with sustenance scarcely enought to sustain 
life. It is for us, therefore, fellow alumni and fellow 
citizens, to secure her release from these bonds, to 
strike off these shackles, that she may step forth into

that wider field of service, free and unhampered, for 
the greater work that awaits her coming." 

Class Reunions 

At the conclusion of Mr. Connor's address the hall 
was given over to the reunion classes of 1865, 1890, 
1895, 1900, 1905, 1910 and 191 1 which mounted 
the platform in turn and sent forward chosen spokes- 
men to address the general body of alumni and 
frieuds. Brief and interesting talks were made by 
Major II. A. London of the class of 1865 ; Mr. G. V. 
TiUey, Mr. F. B. McKinnie, and .Mr. ( '. 1). Brad- 
ham, 1890; Mr. Leslie Weil and Dr. Holland 
Thompson, IS!).-); Mr. A. .1. Barwiek, 1900; Mr. N. 
A. Townsend and I. ('. Wright, 1905; Mr. D. B. 
Teague, W. II. Ramsaur, and H. E. Stacy, 1910; 
and Mr. J. A. Holmes, J. S. Cansler, J. (1. Lee, and 
F. L. Webster, 1914. 

1905 Establishes Improvement Fund 

Mr. I. C. Wright, spokesman for the class of 1905, 
presented to the University a gift of one thousand 
dollars, important of itself and significant as the 
hopeful nest egg of a general alumni improvement 
fund. It is thought that other classes will fall in 
line with 1905 and make this fund take on the na- 
ture of alumni endowment by classes. The class also 
went on record to make further contributions and 
elected W. T. Shore to carry out the undertaking as 
class treasurer. 

W. R. Edmonds Held in Memory 

Mr. Horace Stacy made one of the notable talks of 
the alumni exercises. In speaking for the class of 
1910, he paid eloquent tribute to his classmate, 
William Rufus Edmonds, who succumbed in the fall 
of 1914 to tuberculosis at Albuquerque, New Mexico. 
Edmonds was sorely missed by the class in which he 
was a leader and moving spirit. In college he stood 
high in scholarship and debate. He had much of 
the nigged nature of the mountains among which he 
grew to manhood. The people of High Point where 
he practiced law had marked him out as a strong man 
whose future had the promise of high things. 

1914 Back in Numbers 

The class of 1914 had nearly twenty men back — 
some of them wore already here in the professional 
and graduate schools. In this class were the three 
Holmes brothers of Alamance, James, Albert, and 
Ralph. They were here, the same solid boys, a little 
more solid perhaps for the year's work in the public 
school room. In college James was president of the 
Young Men's Christian Association, Albert was an 



intercollegiate debater, and Ralph made the Phi 
Beta Kappa. 

The Dollar-the-Plate Luncheon a Great Success. 

The most unique occasion of the entire commence- 
ment was the Alumni Luncheon in Swain Hall feat- 
ured by the Richardson Orchestra and Student Ca- 
baret. The dining space of the handsome Swain 
Hall was enclosed by two walls of pine trees and 
boughs broken in their stretch of green by wooden 
pillars of white and blue. In and out among the 
tables of over three hundred people the student 
waiters in white uniforms moved with noiseless pre- 
cision and army-like handling of trays and dishes 
conforming to the plans of their chef-master, Tisch- 
ler, and responsive to every move of the arms of 
floor-lieutenants, .1. Tucker Day, '15, and Francis 
Bradshaw, '16. 

Music and Stunts Please 

During the courses and between, the Richardson 
Orchestra, fresh from the restaurants of New York, 
enlivened the luncheon with sweet and stirring music. 
The students with their music, dancing, and stunts, 
entertained the crowd with delight. Fred McCall 
and Wesley Mclver, corked blacker than Bill Jones 
("Long" or "Short"), clogged over the central plat- 
form with coon-like dexterity. "Meb Long's Band" 
of miscellaneous instruments gathered about an ac- 
cordeon, raised by Long's versatile personality into a 
popular campus institution, won the alumni as it had 
already won the students about the fraternity halls, 
around the South Building steps, and under the 
campus trees. Robert Page's guitar was the only ac- 
companiment that stayed over for commencement 
but "Meb Long's Band" was none the less merry for 
its two piece music. Clyde Fore and Francis Clark- 
son gave a splendid mat exhibition of gymnastic 
strength and dexterity. 

An attractive girl was seated at one of the tables 
unnoticed save for her beauty. Three young men 
came and stood before her and with rapt gaze sang 
her a song of invitation to dance. While the three 
promenaded with song in and out the tables the 
beautiful lady overcame her coy reluctance and went 
to join one of them, Mr. Sidney Blackmer, in an 
exhibition dance after the fancy of Mi-, and Mrs. 
Vernon Castle. It was a dance of such bewildering 
grace that even the ladies present learned with sur- 
prise that the beautiful girl was none other than Mr. 
Bruce Webb of the freshman class, dramatic star and 
track athlete.

Contract for Stadium Let 

A call for speeches followed an overture by the 
orchestra. Short talks were made by Mr. W. D. 
Pruden of Edenton, Air. R. A. Doughton of Sparta, 
Col. Robert Bingham of Asheville, Mr. .1. 1 >. McCall 
of the Charlotte bar, and Dr. S. B. Weeks of Wash- 
ington. Prof. M. ( '. S. N"ohle read amid applause a 
telegram from Mr. Isaac E. Emerson of Baltimore 
that the contract for the stadium had been signed 
with the provision that it be finished September 15th. 

.Mi-. Francis D. Winston, toastmaster nonpareil, 
broke into the speechmaking by introducing the 
leader of the orchestra. "Signor Don Amatti Richard- 
son, alumnus, of Sampson County, North Carolina," 
who rendered on the violin with exquisite sweetness 
Gounod's "Ave Maria." 

Business Meeting Held 

At the call of Dr. James Y. Jdyner, the alumni 
went into business session. Dr. Jovner then made a 
clear and dignified statement of the indebtedness of 
the alumni association amounting to one thousand 
dollars used in the organizationof the general alumni 



association and the establishment of The Alumni 
Review. The Alumni Council, consisting of Dr. 
Jovner. Mr. Walter Murphy, Mr. .1. K. Wilson, Gen- 
eral Julian S. Carr, Mr. T. D. Warren and others, 
went on the notes for this fund. It was the s'tise of 
the meeting that the general association should meet 
th< se notes now due. Five hundred dollars was raised 
mi the spot for this purpose. A committee was ap- 
pointed by Chairman Winston consisting of Dr. 
Joyner, Mr. Murphy and .Mr. Wilson to procure the 
remainder of the fund necessary. After the re-elec- 
tion of all the present officers of the association and 
the Council, the meeting then adjoumd until com- 
mencement 1916. 

President and Faculty (Jive Reception 

After the debate and in spite of the continuous rain 
an attractive reception was given in the Bynum 
Gymnasium by the president and faculty. The gym 
was beautifully decorated. The music, the refresh- 
incuts, and the general social good will made the oc- 
casion altogether delightful. 



COMMENCEMENT DAY 



Judge A. Mitchell Palmer Delivers Masterful Address, and One Hundred and 
Thirty-Three Degrees Are Conferred 



for the first time since 1S75, the formal exercises 
of graduation day began in Memorial Hall at 11 
o'clock without the inarch across the campus. Rain 
in torrents forced this feature out of the program, as 
it also kept the visitors from the surrounding coun- 
try side from taking their annual outing on the Uni- 
versity grounds. 

Following the opening prayer offered by Rev. A. 
( '. Killifer. of Franklin, Term., President Graham 
introduced :is the speaker, Honorable A. Mitchell 
Palmer. Chief Justice of the District Court of the 
District of Columbia. The address, the subject of 
which was •"Some Political Ideals." was an eloquent 
plea tor young men of knowledge and culture to carry 
their high ideals into the held of politics. Declaring 
that the "the spotlight now reveals the idealist in 
politics," he proceeded to review the past when the 
scholar was content to allow the man who had a mind 
for business to employ it in the business of the gov- 
ernment. The happiness of the masses was of little 
concern to the scholar; his own happiness was in the 
wealth of science, art and literature. 

The results of the non-pa rticipa! ion of the scholar 
were inevitable. The common welfare suffered in the 



granting of special privileges. Men devoted to the ac- 
cumulation of wealth found in the unwatchfulness of 
the scholar the opportunity to exploit the people in a 
thousand ways. The speaker then cited notable in- 
stances of the greed and graft that resulted in his own 
State of Pennsylvania. He told of the contractor 
who furnished a great public building with chairs 
and fables measured and paid for by the cubic foot, 
and the railroad builder who secured in exchange for 
political service the franchise to use the public streets 
within the hour that a complacent governor signed the 
law authorizing the grab. 

Turning from the practices of the grafter and re- 
baler of the former generation, . I mice Palmer dis- 
closed that the then-prevailing conception of public 
duty and responsibility hail completely changed, and 
that it was daily being demonstrated that the idealist 
could participate in government to the infinite good 
of those governed. As a result of such participation, 
better working conditions for labor, shorter hours for 
women in shops, greater restrictions of child labor, 
firmer control of the liquor traffic, have been demand- 
ed, and with such success as to demonstrate that these 
liner ideals in politic^ are workable. Judge Palmer 



240 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



further declared that that which has been accomplish- 
ed proves that more may be. The practical arid inter- 
ested young man, now entering upon his life work, 
will want to know what essential virtues he must 
possess to bring his ideals to the full realization. 
He must have the courage to maintain the battle 
against the odds which idealists must always oppose; 
he must have the clear vision to see the goal in the 
distance despite the discouragements of temporary 
defeat; he must have the strength of purpose to with- 
stand the slanders of the hireling critic who would 
make the people doubt his sincerity. And he must be 
willing to fight with the very weapons which he takes 
from the enemy after every struggle, but he must use 
them with the single purpose of truly working out 
his well defined ideals. He must go into practical 
politics. He must accept public place. Nay, he must 
seek it. The man who is modest, sensitive and diffi- 
dent had better overcome the handicaps of his nature 
before he undertakes to right the wrongs of the world. 
He may be a reformer, but he will never reform any- 
thing until he has become self-confident, unmoved by 
slander, aggressive. 

In concluding, Judge Palmer left ringing in the 
ears of the graduating class the appeal to devote their 
entire strength to the elevation of government : 

"If I could raise my voice to tones that might be 
heard throughout the nation, my message would be an 
appeal to the young men of good education and care- 
ful training, with their faces to the front and their 
eyes upon the future, to maintain constant vigilance 
in the cause of real freedom by practical and persist- 
ent activity in the political affairs of the country, 
whether in or out of either of the great parties. If 
that activity shall follow the line indicated by the 
compass which the Creator has put within every 
man — if it shall be marked by firmness to do right as 
God gives us to see the right — the ideals of the nation 
will be the practice of the Republic, Then will the 
true purpose of the fathers be guaranteed to us and 
to those who come after us."

BASEBALL TEAM HAD SUCCESSFUL YEAR 

The baseball season was one of the most successful 
of recent vears. Besides achieving a team average 
of .270, Carolina 15 out of 19 college games and 
scored 120 runs against a total of 45. Leon Shields, 
pitcher and captain-elect, won seven of his eight 
games. Coach Doak's emphasis on stick work brought 
results. 

In the last four games of the season the scores were 
as follows : Carolina 6 — South Carolina ; Carolina 
10 — Wake Forest 4; Carolina 7 — Guilford 2; Caro- 
lina 14 — Elon 2. 

Batting Averages 

According to the figures of the athletic editor of 
the Tur lied the varsity made the high team average 
of .270. Capt. Woodall outdistanced his mates by a 
good margin, hitting after the manner of the slash- 
in- Cobb at an even .400. Six men hit above .300.

sition and Mr. Floyd Crouse and Mr. S. C. Pike of

T. C. Boushall. A. B. 191."., succeeds F. P. Gra- 
ham as Secretary of the Young Men's Christian As- 
sociation. 



SYLVAN WINS BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP 
In an interesting game played in Chapel Hill on 
May 15th the baseball team representing the Sylvan 
high school won the State championship among the 
high schools by defeating the team representing the 
Raleigh high school. The score was 7 to G. Sylvan 
was also the winner of the championship in 1914. 

The championship contest in baseball is a part of 
the regular scheme of athletics carried on by the 
Greater Council and General Alumni Athletic Asso- 
ciation of the University, these activities including 
State-wide high school contests in baseball, football 
basketball, and track. 



CAROLINA WINS STATE TRACK EVENT 
By scoring a total of '14 points < larolina easily won 
the State track meet held in Durham on May 3rd. 
Trinity scored 40 points, A. & M. •'!.">, and Wake 
Forest 11. The main point getters for Carolina were 
Woollcott and Bomewood. Owing to the newness, 
and consequent slowness of the track, no records were 
broken. 



PLANS FOR THE DEBATING UNION 

The High School Debating Union of Xorth Caro- 
lina, as conducted by the Dialectic and Philanthropic 
Literary Societies and the Bureau of Extension of 
the University, will lie continued next year. 

Letters have been sent by the Secretary to the 
school superintendents and principals of the State, 
and suggestions for next year's query have been re- 
ceived. 

During the three years of its existence the Union 
has met with great success. In 1913, 90 schools were 
enrolled; in 1914, 150 schools; in 1915, 250 schools. 
The indications are that the contest for 1916 will be 
the largest and most succesful of all. 



VAUDEVILLE MAKES A HIT 

The University Dramatic Club, Ltd., as a post- 
season stunt, entered vaudeville and provided a most 
enjoyable night of music, exhibition dancing, clog, 
and negro monologue. Meb Long's accordion band, 
Dr. Hanford's stringed orchestra, Prof. McKie's 
farce comedy, and Leon Applewhite as a minstrel 
negro, were features. Sidney Blackmer and Bruce 
Weill) exhibited dancing as a fine art and Mclver 
and McCall out clogged the shineboys. 



CHAPEL HILL VOTES SCHOOL BONDS 

On May is Chapel Hill, in one of the most inter- 
esting elections ever held in the community, voted 
$35,000 in bonds to provide for a site and the erec- 
tion of a complete, modern school building. The 
issue carried by a vote of ST to 42 and the site chosen 
for the new building is that formerly occupied by 
Miss Ilarriotte Cole, on Main Street. 



NEW CORRESPONDENCE COURSE FOR TEACHERS 
OFFERED 

Arrangements have been perfected by the Ex- 
tension Bureau whereby correspondence courses will 
be given in 1915-16 to teachers in the State who 
elect to take them instead of the work outlined in the 
present "Beading Circle" work conducted by the 
State Department of Education. The work thus done 
will be credited by the State Department. 



SUMMER SCHOOL OPENS 

As The Review goes to press the University Sum- 
mer School is opening. From the number of students 
already present and the correspondence relating to 
rooms, it is to be inferred that the attendance will 
be greater this year than ever before. The offering 
of credit courses is making a wide appeal to the 
serious minded teachers throughout the State.

THE ORANGE COUNTY SURVEYS 

Summer before last a little group of men were iu 
earnest consultation with the Secretary of Agricul- 
ture, Dr. David F. Houston, in his office in Wash- 
ington City. 

We are called upon, said he, to legislate about 
everything everywhere, when we do not know ac- 
curately and definitely about anything anywhere. 
Cannot we have a thorough economic and social sur- 
vey of some one county in the United States ? 

One man in that group made up his mind that 
there could be such a survey, and tbat the county 
chosen should be a county in the South. Ten months 
later Orange County, North Carolina, was definitely 
selected for the exhaustive studies contemplated by 
Dr. Houston. 

The Scope of the Surveys 

The surveys now in progress cover (1) the 2000 
farm homes of the county, ( 2) farm organization and 
co-operation, (3) schools and school conditions, (4) 
churches and Sunday schools, (5) health and sanita- 
tion, (6) soils and soil adaptations, and (7) home and 
health surveys of Chapel Hill and Hillsboro. 

The school and the church and Sunday school sur- 
veys have been completed. The village surveys are 



partially finished. The sanitation survey is now in 
progress; and tbe other work will be pushed to a con- 
clusion by November 1st. 

Who is Doing the Work^ 

The work was planned in detail by the Orange 
County Club of the University. The teachers and 
school authorities of the county, the ministers, the 
physicians, the county health authorities, the Board 
of County ( 'ommissi oners, and the women of the 
town community clubs have all been actively inter- 
ested in helping. 

The School and Health boards of the State, the 
Experiment Station authorities, the U. S. Public 
Health Service, and various offices of the Federal 
Agricultural Department at Washington have been 
counseling with us, and guiding us in the details of 
the work ; particularly and directly, the office of 
Markets and Rural Organization under Drs. ( '. .1. 
Brand and ('. W. Thompson. 

The Purposes of It 

The purposes are threefold : ( 1 ) Investigational, 
because the exact status of a typical rural county is to 
be ascertained in definite sort; (2) Educational and 
stimulative, because acute common consciousness of 
conditions, causes, consequences, and remedies is 
necessary in democratic communities before they are 
likely to gird up their loins for intelligent, remedical 
effort; and (3) Constructive, because social steam 
goes to waste unless packed behind piston rods. 

The investigational campaign has been underway 
since February. The community rallies have begun. 
Ten have already been held: at Chapel Hill, Carr- 
boro, Hillsboro, Sunnyside, Rankins' Chapel, White 
Cross, Cedar Grove, Damascus Church and Williams' 
School, the wheat growers, nailers and bankers at 
Chapel Hill. 

During the laying-by season in late July and early 
August there will be ten or twelve more such rallies 
at strategic points in the country regions of Orange. 
We are trying to find out not merely what is ideally 
desirable, but what is actually possible for the people 
of Orange County to undertake; a whole-time health 
officer, a school supervisor, a county agent or two in 
charge of boys' and girls' club work, school better- 
ment, marketing organizations, libraries, reading and 
recreation clubs, and so on and on. 

Out of this campaign will come some of these 
movements forward — the ones that are possible for 
Orange County to undertake successfully. The il- 
lustrated bulletin, "Orange County, Economic and 
Social," will lie ready for distribution in early Janu- 
ary.— E. C. B.

NEW PHARMACY JOURNAL 

Under the title -Carolina Journal of Pharmacy," 
the William Simpson Pharmaceutical Society of the 
University has begun the issue of a quarterly journal 
of Pharmacy for North Carolina. 

The first number of the quarterly appeared in 
May, being edited by a board of which J. G. Bear I 
is editor-in-chief and R. A. McDuffie is business 
manager. The subscription price is fifty cents a 
year. 

The first number is attractively printed by the 
Seeman Printery, of Durham, wears an artistic cover 
of blue, and contains half-tone engravings of William 
Simpson, in honor of whom the Pharmaceutical So- 
ciety is named, and of Person Hall, the present home 
of the department. 

The iVn-ty pages which constitute the issue are de- 
voted to editorials, special articles, alumni notes, and 
personals. They are extremely interesting, and the 
impression which the number makes is altogether 
good. 



Lectureship in American Citizenship. Lectures upon 
this foundation will be given in series of three every 
year. Through this gift the idea which President 
Graham has of making permanent such lectures as 
those given this year by former President Taft is rea- 
lized. 

MCNAIR LECTURE PUBLICATIONS 

"( 'liristian Life in the Modern World," by Francis 
Greenwood Peabody, published by the MacMillan 
( Jompany, price $1.25, and "German Philosophy and 
Politics," by John Dewey, published by Henry Holt 
and Company, price $1.25, have recently been issued 
in attractive bonk form, being the seventh and eighth 
series, respectively, of the John Calvin MeNair 
lectures. The University has a limited number of 
the Dewey series, copies of which may be secured by 
alumni upon requests directed to the Bureau of Ex- 
tension. 



INAUGURAL PROCEEDINGS 

The proceedings of the inauguaration of President 
Graham on April 21st have been published by the 
University in a hundred page booklet and, as 
previously announced, may be secured free by ad- 
dressing a request to the Bureau of Extension at 
Chapel Hill. Additional copies other than the first 
may be secured at the rate of twenty-five cents each. 

Untitled "The Function of the State University," 
the booklet presents throughout the ideal of the mod- 
ern State University and particularly the ideal which 
the University of North Carolina attempts to realize in 
its work. Printed in unusually attractive form the 
publication is in every sense an adequate and worthy 
presentation of the splendid occasion which it records. 



NEWS LETTER RUNS THROUGH SUMMER 

The University of North Carolina Neivs Letter is 
now being sent to 5,000 people each week. It will be 
continued without a break through the summer 
months. Anyone desiring to receive this publication 
should address a postal to the Bureau of Extension. 
There is no charge for it.

ham of a liberal gift received by the University at 
the recent meeting of the trustees for the establish- 
ment of a series of lectures in American Citizenship.
