this C arolma s banner year.
The big fact of what so far has been such an aus-
picious opening has not been the nearing completioai
of the Emerson athletic field, the record enrollment
in the graduate and professional schools, the gifts
laid at alma mater's feet by the classes of 1905 and
1910, or even the fact, however gratifying it may be,
that the student body, on September 30th, numbered
1110. It is rather that to date 350 young men have
entered the freshman class and are here upon this
century-old campus to be assimilated by the Uni-
versity and sent back into the State, trained, useful
How to take this large body of men into the life
of the institution, how to start them on the way to
genuine self-development, how to give them back
to their homes, their communities, their State strong
in character and imbued with the spirit to serve —
this constitutes the Univer.'ity's greatest opportunity
and its real problem.
This the University clearly understands. To this
end every agency possible is being employed. The
Y. M. C. A. continuation committee has interested
itself in the new man before he left home and is as-
sisting him in adjusting himself to the campus now
that he is here. "College Night" is planned pri-
marily to give him a correct view of what is essential
to the best sort of campus citizenship. Faculty ad-
visers put aside formalities and aid him in laying
enduring foundations. The Gymnasium, the Library,
the Literary Societies open to him their opportunities
for physical and intellectual development, and the
Y. M. C A., the Sunday Schools, and the churches of
the village throw their stimulating spiritual influ-
ences about him.
In his address at the formal opening, Dean Stacy
said it was remarked of Yale graduates that if you
were thrown with them for as much as an hour, you
discovered the fact that they had been Yale students.
Yale had left its unmistakable impress upon them.

dent Graham and the alumni com-

out the State and in cities outside wherever there are

appropriate meetings and to plan for alma mater's
In the local celebrations this year, more so than
at any previous time, it is urged that a part of the
program be devoted to the consideration of some of
the University's problems; for, by reason of its in-
creased numbers and extending service beyond the
campus, its problems are becoming hourly more com-
plex. ISTow, as never before, the University is in need
of the thoughtful counsel of its alumni.
To this end it is urged that all the local associations
hold meetings and that the various local committees
see to it that among the maoiy things which may be
considered, the following matters pointed out in Pres-
ident Graham's open letter are done: (1) that the
county gets the benefit of the various activities of the
Extension Bureau, (2) that the county co-operates
with the North Carolina Club for progressively study-
ing the economic problems of the county, and with
local civic clubs, (3) that the truly promising boys
in the county are discovered, and that every one
of them has a chance to go to the University, (4)
that every University man in the county keeps reas-
onably informed of University affairs, and sees that

secretary sending in an account of the meeting to
The Review. The l^ovember number will carry
these reports as a sjaecial feature. If i^ictures of
groups can be sent they too will be gratefully received.
x\s the years go by the University is becoming
more and more the recipient of gifts. Reference to
notices aj^pearing elsewhere in this
number will show that during the
1905 AND 1910
past summer several donations have
been received all of which are valuable in themselves
as well as indicative of an interest on the part of
the givers in the increasing welfare of the University.
Among the gifts recently received, if any may be
singled out for special mention, are checks from the
classes of 1905 and 1910 for $1000 and $400 respec-
tively. The $400 from the class of 1910 constitutes
the beginning of the Edmonds memorial. The in-
come from it will be employed as a loan fund for
deserving students. The $1000 from the class of
1905, representing the class gift after ten years ab-
sence from the University, is given without restric-
tions as to its use. Being the first of such gifts, it
becomes the nucleus of what will probably be styled
the "University Improvement Fund." To this will
be added other gifts as they are received and in time
the accumulated fund will be employed in carrying
out some large University project.
Now that a beginning has been made, The Re-
view directs the attention of individual alumni to the
plan, and especially urges class organizations to give
it their thoughtful consideration.
During the summer the Alabama Polytechnic In-
stitute at Auburn reached the conclusion that it would
»i AT.Ai><c»>c< establish a department of education.
ALABAMA a tt • i • i i
yjrr.y ilavmg determined that point, its
next step was to secure a man to or-
ganize the department. It looked the field over
carefully and decided that Prof. Z. V. Judd, former-
ly of the Wake County Schools, and for the past year
professor of Rural Education in the University, was
the person to undertake the work. To secure him it
offered a three year contract the provisions of which
were: a salary which in the three years would equal
the salary he was receiving here in four and seven-
eights years ; a second instructor in the department
with professorial rank; six hours of recitation work
23er week ; traveling expenses for attendance at edu-
cational meetings within or without the State; a
library fund for necessary books and journals; and
whatever stenograjDhic and clerical assistance might
be required in the administration of the department.
The University gives up Professor Judd reluc-
tantly. He had demonstrated his ability to serve
North Carolina both in Wake and at the University.
However gladly the University would have continued
Professor Judd in the service and however much he
may have wished to continue therein, the Alabama
way of securing the sort of service it demands made
a choice in favor of Carolina almost impossible. It
is a way which, like that of Virginia and Vanderbilt
and Texas, when brought into competition with Car-
olina, must almost of necessity win.
No recent announcement has given The Review
more satisfaction than that made by President Grra-

Review understands it, means that the alumni are
to have a reference handbook which will enable them
to keep in close touch with each other, and the Uni-
versity will be brought into a more vital relationship
with its sons.
The personnel of the committee entrusted with the

A RECORD YEAR BEGINS
The One Hundred and Twenty-first Year Formally Opens With 1 66 More Students Present
on the Opening Day Than in 1914-15
The formal ojiening of the 121st year of the
TJniveisity occurred in Memorial Hall at noon on
Thursday, September 8, with 998 students registered,
the number being 166 greater than that at the same
time in 1914. Rev. W. D. Moss, of the Presbyterian
'Church, offered the invocation and Preston H. Epps,
led in singing the University hymn.
Before presenting Dean Stacy, who spoke upon the
theme of making the year memorable by fidelity to
tasks and by keeping the vision beyond the daily task
clear, President Graham recounted the changes in
the faculty and gave brief statistics concerning the
registration. The most significant facts growing
out of the registration were that the total registration
was at that hour within two of the thousand mark and
that the freshman class numbered 322, a gain of 66
over the class entering in 1914.
In his address President Graham professed his
belief that the year ahead held the promise of being
the greatest in the University's history. In giving
his reasons for this faith he spoke in part as follows :
President Graham's Address
We begin today what gives promise of being the
greatest year in the almost century and a quarter
of the University's history. All of the factors in a
vigorous and healthy life are actively and consciously
co-operating in its support. It has the respect of its
sister institutions throughout the country, the confi-
dence and esteem of the people of the State, the en-
thusiastic loyalty of its alumni, and the intelligent
and whole-hearted love of its rapidly growing stu-
It is not unnatural that we should rejoice in its
growing strength and size and, conscious that no com-
promise of any standard has been made, we have ho
disposition to ajwlogize for this evidence of its suc-
cess. There are those who advocate the superior virtue
of a small college, and certainly none of us here con-
fuses mere bulk and true greatness. Smallness has
its associated virtues. I do not need to name them.
Growth has its problems. Switzerland is an admir-
able country in its fine way. It has many advantages
not possessed by the United States. It is untroubled
by many of the complex problems that vex this great
country. I should not argue, however, that it is great
because it is small, nor hope for any sound conclu-
sions from an argument founded on its miniature
and fixed proportions.
I trust that the time will never come when we shall
rejoice in size for its own sake, nor sacrifice a detail
of our standards for the sake of false growth ; but I
do rejoice that the University of North Carolina re-
flects in its growth a well-proportioned and vigorous
life, and reflects the steadily increasing interest of
the State in education, carrying with it, as evidenced
by your presence here, the endorsement of every sec-
tion, of every vocation and profession, of every de-
gree of poverty and wealth. We believe too much in
what it stands for, not to rejoice that so many of the
people of the State believe in what it stands for. It
gives us courage, faith, and aggressive purpose to go
about widening and deepening the saving influences
of the permanently great things it lives to promote.
I said a moment ago that the true greatness of the
University, and the reality of its progress does not
depend on its size. I should like to put to you the
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
question : Upon what does its true greatness depend ?
and the corollary question : Upon what does your suc-
cess here, and your o^vn greatness as a University stu-
dent depend ? We shall not make much progress un-
til we get some clear and intelligent approach to an
answer to these questions. Whether we get an answer
in the few moments that I shall ask you to consider
them now, we may make a start toward an answer
that the year will make clearer.
College Must Satisfy the Supreme Human Need
of the People
The answer that I give, I offer without prelimi-
nary: The greatness of a college depends upon its
ability to satisfy the supreme human need of the
j)cople and time it serves. The life and health of a
college are not mysterious. Colleges have a way of
dying and going to seed; they have a way, as the
years go by and take toll of their vitality, of losing
their fruitful impulse, and becoming a set of more or
less worthy and dignified by-laws. The great college
is the college that supplies the civilization it serves
with a program of guidance — a way out of the diffi-
culties through which the people are trying to find
their way, and equips its students to be representa-
tive men in the era in which they live. Colleges have
risen to greatness as they have done this, and they
have fallen away as they have merely repeated in
mechanical routine traditional exercises that are off
the key of the master note of their own. time.
It would not be difficult to show, I think, how great
institutions have been as naturally the outgrowth of
the life of the people they served, as the trees of the
soil, and how they reiireseut the successively great
ideas and ideals that man in his slow progress through
the centuries has evolved. They have realized for men
the new life relations that men at work have been
steadily trying to discover, and have equipped yoimg
men to interpret these relations through their profes-
sions — the University of Paris, Salerno, Bologna, Ox-
ford, Berlin, the great technical schools of Europe,
and, in our own country. Harvard, Hoj^kins, and the
great state universities. They stood and stand for some
sujireme human need in the successive stages of ad-
vancing civilization — ecclesiasticism, culture, science.
Their training has in each case been professional and
practical, guiding the needed idea into fruitful in-
terpretation, and training the representative man of
the time: the hero-type, whether he was the chti.ch-
man, the statesman, the courtier, the man of science,
or what not. What is important, then, to the great-
ness of our college, and to you is that the college
should patiently and passionately seek to know what
the supreme need of our time is, and after seeing that
need as clearly as it can, resolutely to satisfy it.
College Education Has Become Practical
It is a commonplace, — and I state it in its baldest
form — to say that the time we live in. is above all
else a practical time. It is called commercial. It
is even said to have sold out humanity's great ideas
and ideals to dollar standards of success; and it is
further said that education, and particularly college
education, has lost its permanent values through be-
coming suiJerficial and practical.
College education has become obviously practical in
its tendencies. This is shown not only by the up-
growth of specifically technical schools, but by the
whole college curriculum. It is shown in our own
curriculum by the courses called "B. S. Med" ; the
combined A. B. and law course; the numerous engi-
neering courses, in which students at entrance de-
finitely set out on the trail of their professions. But
it is not true that the real values of college training
have been set at naught by this vocational inclination,
nor is it wise in my judgment, for the college to be-
little practical values, nor lament the lack of worship
at its ancient shrines. What it must do is to make
convincingly clear how wholly essential to present
practical life its permanent truths and methods are.
The scientific revolution of the nineteenth century
gave a new framework to hiunan thinking and to hu-
man conduct. It created a century that is a wonder-
ful chapter in the history of the race. It was inevit-
able too, that this great period was to be followed
by a period of application, in which the wonders of
science and invention would be translated into prac-
tice and give once again a new framework to our
thinking and our conduct, our material welfare, and,
through revolutionized conditions of human associa-
tions of free men at work in a world of industry, give
us a new philosophy of living and a new social con-
This application of the world's knowledge to the
every-day practical concerns of men has not lost or
lowered any standard of learning. It has, as Presi-
dent Goodnow has said, made the engineer out of the
mechanic, the architect out of the carpenter, the naval
constructor out of the boat builder. It has inter-
preted human labor in terms of intelligence; it has
liberated human hands and minds; and it has liber-
ated wealth for human comfort and enjoyment. The
problem of modern university education is not to
combat the ajjplication of abstract truth and the mas-
tery of how to do in addition to what to know — as
religion and culture combated the coming of science.
Behind the practical, material, and commercial stan-
dards of the new social order that is in the process of
construction, there is an idealism that it is the uni-
que obligation of higher education to stimulate and
interpret in our everyday life. The activities of
men have taken a new shift, but the single great art,
as Professor H. B. Adams has recently said, is now
as always the art of living.
It is in giving a new and higher interpretation to
making a living under a broader interpretation of a
better art of living for all of the peoj^le, that the col-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
lege finds its great present task. It is a task that
does not discard the ideals of culture or the methods
of truth for its own sake. For its ideals to be perma-
nent, they must be fouuded on the ideals that men
have wrung from experience, and must include them.
To untangle the web of materialism and liberate
through a mastery of its deeper human relations is
the task that gives to universities — I am paraphras-
ing Professor Adams again — an ofiportunitv such as
never before existed in the history of the world. It
is upon their mastery through education of the prac-
tical world of vocation, and upon their ability to satu-
rate efficiency in making a good liviDg with the ideals
of living a good life that the greatness of a modern
university depends. The representative man, the
product of such a university, may be a great church-
man, a great soldier, a great statesman, a great scien-
tist, but he will pre-eminently be a great citizen.
Your o\\Ti success here and your greatness as a col-
lege student, if I may so phrase it, depends on your
ability to train yourself through your quiet days of
study here in those qualities that will be demanded
of this representative man in the world in which you
are preparing to take your place.
Essential Qualities Demanded in Modern Training
May I briefly trace what these qualities seem to me
necessarily to be. First : No student is truly trained
imless he has learned to do pleasantly, and promptly,
and with clean-cut accuracy every task he has ob-
ligated himself to do. A man may decline to undertake
a job, but to undertake it and shirk it is a crime in
the world of efficiency. An undergraduate has said
that the main purpose of colleges seems to be to give
students incapacity for work. This is because some
students dodge every duty to which the death penalty
is not attached, and train themselves into the fatal
habit of doing as they like. I presume that it is the
prevalence in colleges of these amiable conspiracies
for making indolence respectable that has caused that
master workman, Mr. Henry Ford, to employ no col-
lege men in his factory. Decisive and purposeful
performance of every duty is a fundamental rule of
success in life that no man has the right to train him-
self away from in college.
Second: oSTo student is truly trained unless, in ad-
dition to getting this mastery of the tools of life that
comes through the discipline of routine tasks, he
puts into his work his own personal curiosities and
opens his faculties to a lively and original interest in
his work that leads him to test for himself what he is
told. Ever>' subject lends itself to this spirit of in-
quiry, and no subject has real fruitage until it has
in some way, small or great, had its conclusions re-
tested, and its truths re-discovered by the student
Third: No student has been truly trained unless,
in addition to learning to do a workman-like job, and
cultivating a lively spirit of insistent inquiry, he also
gets from his contact with the master spirits of the
race those qualities of taste and behavior and stan-
dards of judgment that constitute a true gentleman.
"To have spent one's youth at college," says William
James, "in contact with the choice and rare and pre-
cious, yet be a blind prig or vulgarian, unable to scent
out human excellence, or divine it amid its accidents,
to know it only when labelled and forced on us by
others, this indeed should be accounted the very cal-
amity and ship-wreck of a higher education."
Fourth: In addition to these individual interests,
no student is truly trained unless he realizes that he
does not live to himself alone, but is a part of an or-
ganic community life that is the source of most of
the privileges he enjoys. He is and will ever be a
member of a social group that implies responsibilities
and services to it quite as important as those he owes
to himself. These he may learn with unusual force
and intimacy in the fine loyalties of a college commu-
nity. What the total power and spirit of the college
will be is affected by every detail of the conduct of
each individual that composes it, the tone of its at-
mosphere by every man that breathes it.
The Gift of the College Depends Upon the Student's Choice
There is nothing mysterious about the part the
college will play in giving you the qualities that will
equip you for this great adventure on which you are
setting out. She cannot, by allowing you to room
within sight of the well, nor by any system of exami-
nations or lectures, give you a single virtue, nor has
she a wishing cap by which she can "wish on you"
any capacity or quality that you do not have. Before
she can answer your inquiry as to what she means to
say to you as your foster mother, she asks you a very
simple question. It is, "What do you want ; and what
are you willing to pay" ? You may remember in your
mythology, and in your Grimm's fairy tales, that
when the hero's fortune was so great that the kind
fairies put themselves at his service, they always ask-
ed him what he wanted. He had at least to choose. It
was the way with the wonderful youth Solomon. It
is the way with you, O wonderful youth, whoever
you are, that have come to this fairy god-mother of
modern times: She will mean to you what you will,
and what you will she will give it to you. I should
like to make this splendidly clear, and take the full
responsibility for the promise : the college will give to
you this year whatever gift you seriously ask of her.
I challenge you, therefore, to answer with a choice,
and I call upon you to consider with all intentness
and manly intelligence what your momentous choice
is, and that you put behind that choice, once made,
every ounce of power you possess !
I have not talked to you of discipline and rules,
nor of the great traditions that through the century
have hallowed this spot, created by the loving care
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
and sacrifice of the splendid company that have gone
before you in this institution. I assume that its tradi-
tions are as precious to you as they are to me, and I
commit them to you, whose heritage they are, in ab-
solute confidence that you will not only keep the faith,
but transmit it to those who come after you with its
light heightened and brightened. I assume that you
will be jealous of the honor of this college, and guard
it as you would that of your mother. I do not empha-
size the negative virtues of the boy, but the positive
virtues of the man. You aren't here merely to live
a life of stagnant goodness ; you have comis here, be-
cause you have "come to yourself," and to answer
the thirst of your awakened self for capable and dis-
tinguished achievement. If you have, you will set
for yourself no standard of mediocrity, nor subscribe
to any cult of the second best in your studies, your in-
terests, your tastes, and your companions. If you
have come with such a manly impulse, I urge you not
to compromise it in a single detail. There is but one
real tragedy that can happen to you now or hereafter,
and that is deliberately to abandon your ideals. What-
ever contribution this college makes to the progress
of men will come from your valiant pursuit of your
ideals while you study here, and from your clear
understanding of the identity of your interests with
the interests of the college.
This college should be and can be the most con-
spicuous achievement of this people. "It can be more
influential in making actual the dormant and inactive
ideals of the State than any institution in the world
has been — more serviceable, more admirable — a genu-
ine triiimph of youth and self-mastery, efficient train-
ing, and self-government."
I commit it to you: the ark of the covenant of the
fathers, your infinitely priceless present possession,
the saving hope and heritage of your children and
their children's children.
THE SUMMER SCHOOL MAKES HISTORY
Students From 90 Counties in North Carolina Were in Attendance, 138 Pursuing Work
for College Degrees
Viewed in the light of all previous records, the
twenty-eighth session of the University Summer
School, from June 15th to July 30th, stands out pre-
eminently as the most successful in the history of
the University. From Director Walker's report to
President Graham, the following significant facts
The corps of instructors, not including the Direc-
tor and office force, was composed of forty-three mem-
bers, thirty-three men and ten women. Twenty-five
of these were members of the University's regular
teaching stafi^. Of the remaining eighteen, three
were members of other college faculties, three were
city superintendents of schools, ten were supervisors
and teachers in city or rural schools, one Secretary
of the State Historical Commission, and one State
Supervisor of Rural Elementary Schools.
Ninety-four courses of instruction were scheduled
in twenty-four branches. Eighty-six of these courses,
not including the work in the Practice School, were
There were enrolled 731 students as against 596
for the preceding year. Of this number there were
206 male and 525 female students. 482 were
teachers; 130 were preparing to teach; 28 were pre-
paring to enter college; 138 were studying for col-
lege or University credit; scattering, 15.
Ninety North Carolina counties wei'e represented
by a total of 687 "students. Wake led with 39, fol-
lowed by Orange as a close second with 38. Ashe,
Avery, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Madison, Mitchell,
Polk, Swain, and Yancey were not represented.
'Sjjecial features giving distinction to the term
were numerous. The Rural Life Conference, the
High School Conference, the Celebration of the
Fourth of July, and the Annual Concert of the Choral
'Society were of the highest order and brought hun-
dreds of visitors to the Hill. These, together with
the series of a score of public lectures, story hours
on the campus, experiments and demonstrations in
the class rooms and laboratories, added variety to the
work of the school, and gave, by actual illustration,
many valuable suggestions for future use in the rural
districts and schools of the State.
Possibly the most noteworthy fact to be recorded
of the School is that 138 of the students were pur-
suing courses leading to various University degrees
and that 250 others were working for definite State
certificates. In every class, genuine work similar to
that regularly done in the long term, was demanded
and was performed in a splendid earnest spirit.
Plans for the School in 1916 are being considered

to be present in 1916 will reach the 1000 mark.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Summer School Scene from the Fourth of July Celebration, 1915
Many Old Men Have Returned for Positions on all Teams
Present prospects point to a jear in Carolina ath-
letics as superior to last year as last year was to the
few years preceding. Promising material — football,
basketball, baseball, and track — is abundant among
the 1119 students registered at the University. The
football field every afternoon testifies to this.
Of last year's varsity football men. Captain Tayloe,
Reid, Parker, Allen, Home wood, Wright, Gay, Ram-
say, Tandy, and Jones are already in training, while
Cowcll is expected on the Hill early in October.
Promising men for unfilled positions in the back-
field are: Blades, Townsend, of A. & M., Blount,
Fore, and Black, members of last year's squad. Long,
substitute last year, Blackmer, from Mercersburg,
and Johnson from Raleigh High, — the last three can-
didates for the position of quarter-back.
Linemen are plentiful, and with not a single posi-
tion vacant from end to end anil several of the new
moil of varsity quality, Carolina's line for this season
should be impregnable. Homewood and Wright, both
last year's ends, are on hand, together with several
good new men — Love, Clavo, Fitzsimmons, Metz,
Watson, and others as substitutes. Several of the
back-field, Tavloe, Townsend, Royster and Long, are
punters, while Tiiiidy, or Tayloe, will agaiii do the
Although impeded somewhat by the heat in the
afternoons, the early practice is rapidly developing,
scrimmaging having begun Sei^tember 22. The first
game is scheduled for October 2, with The Citadel, of
Charleston. The coaches are hoping to train their
men so that they will reach on Thanksgiving the con-
dition they showed last year at an earlier period,
when they defeated Georgia 41 to 6 on one Saturday
and \'anderbilt the following Saturlay 10 to 9.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Coaches Trenchard, Cunningham, and Duff
Coaclies Trenchard, Cunningham, and Duff com-
prise the "general staff." Trenchard will take care
of the ends; Cunningham, of Washington, D. C,
will watch over the back^field; and Duff, the new
member of the trio, head-coach for two years at the
University of Pittsburg and guard on the Princeton
championship team of 1911, will center his attention
on the line.
Schedule for the 'Varsity
Eight games have been arranged for the varsity.
The schedule furnished by Manager Norris follows :
Oct. 2— 'Citadel at Chapel Hill.
Oct. 9— Wake Forest at Chapel Hill.
Oct. 16 — Georgetown at Washington, D. C.
Oct. 23— Y. M. I. at Greensboro.
Oct. 30 — Georgia Tech. at Atlanta.
Nov. 6 — ^Clemson at Charlotte.
'Nov. 13 — Davidson at Winston-Salem.
Nov. 25 — Virginia at Richmond.
Other Teams Well Represented
The basketball prospects, though farther away, are
equally promising. All varsity men, Johnson, cap-
tain, Long, last season's captain, Andrews, Davis,
Tennent, and Tandy, together with every scrub man
of any merit whatever have returned. New material
and class material developed from last year are ex-
pected to show up well. The baseball team and track
team lose some of their most valualile men. However,
new material and last year's substitutes are expected
to remedy that loss.
FACULTY CHANGES FOR 1915-1916
Announcements made by President Graham at
'Commencement and on^ the opening day of the term
indicated the following changes in the faculty for
the present year :
Prof. A. H. Patterson, of the department of
physics and Dean of the School of Applied Science,
has been granted a year's leave of absence to accept
very remunerative service with the American Arms
Company of New York. He is succeeded by Dr.
Elmer A. Harrington, of Clark University, who takes
charge of his work in physics. Professor Patterson's
administrative duties as head of the department and
as dean will be performed by Professor P. H. Dag-
gett of the department of electrical engineering.
Dr. T. J. Wilson, Jr., after serving for a number
of years as associate professor of Latin and registrar,
has given up his work as teacher and in the future is
to devote his whole time to the work of the registrar's
office. He is succeeded in the class room by Dr.
George A. Harrier, who received his degree from
Princeton and has been an instructor there in Latin.
Associate Professor W. S. Bernard, of the depart-
ment of Greek, has been made acting head of the de-
partment. He is to be assisted in the department

THE NORTH CAROLINA CLUB BEGINS WORK
The North Carolina Club, composed of members
of the student body enrolled in the various county
clubs of the University, began its work with Pro-
fessor E. C. Branson on ilonday night, Sejitember
Plans for the immediate future as contemplated
in the programme adopted are to study the three
following problems in detail : "What We Have to
Advertise;" "Why We Need to Advertise;" and
"Ways and Means of Effective Advertising."
The first programme of the club was held on
^Monday night, September 27. Papers, with discus-
sions, were presented relative to the advertising of
the State's mineral and water resources.
J. H. Allred, of Surry county, and J. H. Lassiter,
of Northampton, led the discussion of the two sub-
The programme for the first part of the year pro-
vides for the careful consideration of the following
topics: Water Powers, Prominence in Manufacture,
Our Soils and Seasons, Our Economic Freedom, El-
bow-room for Home-seekers, A State Publicity Bu-
reau, A State-wide Board of Trade, County-wide
Boards of Trade, School, County and State Fairs,
How the Railroads Can Help, What the Banks Can
Do, Local Newspaper Publicity, Community Book-
lets, Local Exhibits of Resources and Products, and

EMERSON FIELD NEARS COMPLETION
On October first the second of the two reinforced
concrete grandstands on the Emerson Athletic Field
were practically finished, and the forces formerly
engaged in laying concrete began to give their entire
time to the preparation of the field itself.
Modernness will characterize the new field in every
respect. The grandstands, which together will ac-
commodate about twenty six hundred spectators, are
of the most up-to-date construction. Under one of the
stands there will be quarters for both the home and
visiting teams fitted out with showers, lockers, and
other necessities of the athlete. A concrete sound-
proof room will be jirovided for the coaches to use in
giving instructions to their teams.
The gridiron will be directly in front of the two
grandstands and will be surrounded by a cinder run-
ning track 22 feet wide. The baseball diamond will
be placed partly on the gridiron, home plate being
directly in front of the driveway between the two
stands. The entire athletic field, which will embrace
much more ground than the former field, will be sur-
rounded with a closely woven wire fence, over which
honey-suckle will be trained. The grey concrete
stands, the vine-covered inclosure, together with the
woods on three sides will make an attractive setting
for the University's athletic contests.

DR. JOSEPH AUSTIN HOLMES
Dr. Joseph Austin Holmes, professor of geology
in the University from 1881 to 1891 and State Geolo-
gist of North Carolina from 1891 to 1904, died in
Denver, Colorado, on July 13th. At the time of his
death, which was occasioned by over-work in behalf
of the miners of the country, he was Director of the
Bureau of Mines of the United States, a position in
which he had rendered conspicuous service since its
creation in 1910.
In commenting upon the character of Director
Holmes' service, Harper's Weekly paid him the
following high tribute:
"The death of Joseph A. Holmes, Director of the
Federal Bureau of Mines, removes the chief authority
in this country on both the material and human ele-
ments involved in the mine industry. Beginning with
the study of geology, of which he was professor at
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
the University of North Carolina, he was put in
charge of the technological branch of the Geological
Survey in the investigation of mine accidents, in
1907. He WHS instrumental in securing the creation by
the Government of the Bureau of Mines. His charac-
ter was shown when he refused to take sides against
Pinchot in the Ballinger controversy, though the
Geological Survey was under the Interior Department
and its chief became a willing witness for Ballinger.
It was feared by Dr. Holmes' friends that he had
sacrificed the position as chief of the Bureau soon to
be created. When the Bureau was organized, how-
ever, in 1910, Dr. Holmes seems to have been the
only one thought of by either the mine owners or
mine workers ; and their representations at the White
House were so powerful that President Taft gave him
the appointment. He did a fine work in making the
mining industry a less hazardous occupation, and it
will be a difficult task to find a successor so well
equipped for this life-saving bureau of the Federal
Dr. Holmes was a resident of Chapel Hill for more
than twenty years, was the giver of a number of valu-
able scientific works and journals to the University
library, and received the degree of LL. D. from the
who has frequently aided various enterprises in which
the University is engaged, mailed the News Letter a
check for $100 during the opening week of the session
and wished it abundant success in its second year's
CAROLINA RECEIVES APPRECIATED GIFTS
During the summer Carolina was the recipient of a
number of appreciated gifts. Of these the first was
the check for $1000 given by the class of 1905 upon
the completion of the first decennial after leaving
the campus. Through W. T. Shore, secretary and
treasurer of the class, the check has been handed to
President Graham to be used by the University in
whatever way seems most advisable. Another gift
of $400 was received from the class of 1910 to be
used as a loan fund and contributed in honor of the
late W. E. Edmonds, '10.
Two gifts made to the Library were the Bain mem-
orial collection comprising 600 or 700 volumes
from the private library of Latin and Greek classics
of the late Dr. C. W. Bain, and a collection of pre-
historic relics from Indian mounds. The Bain mem-
orial collection was presented to the Library by the
colleagues of Dr. Bain in the faculty. It was also
accompanied by the gift of his card indexes and
notes through Mrs. Bain. The Indian relics were
the gift of Rev. G. W. Lay, rector of St. Mary's
School, and formed originally a part of the collec-
tion of the late Henry C. Lay, of Telluride, Colorado.
The University News Letter also received recogni-
tion of a cheering, constructive sort. An alumnus
AN ALUMNI CATALOGUE ASSURED
Alumni everywhere will welcome the news that at
last the University is to have a General Alumni Cata-
logue. Its need has long been recognized and a
number of eft'orts to secure the preparation of one
have for one reason or another failed. Recently how-
ever President Graham has aj^pointed the following
committee to bring the publication to completion :
J. G. deR. Hamilton, T. J. Wilson, Jr., '94, and E.
R. Rankin, '13, from the faculty and K. P. Battle,
'94, J. S. Carr, '66, Walter Murphy, '92, Lawrence
S. Holt, Jr.,, '04, J. K. Wilson, '05, and R. D. W.
Connor, '99, from the alumni.
The faculty section of the committee at once or-
ganized and elected T. J. Wilson, Jr., '94, Registrar
of the University, as editor of the Catalogue. The
work has already been begun and will be actively
prosecuted until completed. It is hoped to have the
book in the printer's hands within two years.
Fuller details and working plans will be given in a
later number of The Review.
BATTLE MEMORIAL TO BE COMPLETED NOV. 1
Work has begun on the new parish house of the
Episcopal church, a much needed addition to the
Chapel of the Cross which has been contemplated
for some time. The contractors hope to have it com-
pleted by November.
The building will be provided with class rooms for
the use of the Sunday School with separate accommo-
dations for the primary department, the rector's study
and a small kitchinette containing a stove and equip-
ment for the preparation of such light refreshments
as are used in the social functions of the church. The
Brotherhood of St. Andrew, the Woman's Guild and
other church organizations will make use of this
building as a meeting place.
Far from impairing the picturesque beauty of the
Chapel of the Cross, the new parish house will be
an added attraction. Mr. Upjohn, the architect, is a
grandson of the designer of the Chapel, and he has
followed the same style of architecture. The plans
have been arranged so that otber additions may be
made in the future as needed, without altering the
present structures or injuring their harmonious
The cost of the Memorial approximates $5000.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Douations have been made in the parish and through-
out the State by people interested in perpetuating the
name of Dr. Battle and his wife. In accepting this
tribute, Dr. Battle wrote as follows:
"Mrs. Battle and I are exceedingly gratified at the
action of the rector, the vestry, and other parishioners
of our church. It is impossible for us to decline the
honor. For me to have my name associated with the
parish of which I have been virtually a member for
sixty-uine years, during forty-seven an active mem-
ber, fills the measure of my ambition."
CONTRACT FOR GRADED SCHOOL BUILDING LET
As a result of the bond issue for schools which was
voted in the spring. Chapel Hill will have by April
20, 1916, a $35,000 modern school building and
grounds, the site of the new building being the Cole
property on Franklin Street.
The building, which will consist of two stories and
a basement, will be of brick, and is to be equipped
with steam heat, vacuum cleaning apparatus, uni-
lateral lighting, an electrical ventilating system, sani-
tary shower baths, and steel desks. Ten class rooms,
an office for the principal, a rest room for teachers,
a library, and an auditorium capable of seating 500
people are to be included in the building. An athletic
field for football, baseball, basketball, and tennis will
join the grounds. New courses of instruction made
possible by the bond issue will include domestic
science, manual training, kindergarten work, and
W. B. Barrow, of Raleigh, is contractor and Hook
and Rodgers, of Charlotte, are the architects.
DR. O. E. BROWN SPEAKS
Dr. 0. E. Brown, professor of comparative reli-
gions at Vauderbilt University and lecturer at the
Blue Ridge Summer Conferences, spoke before the
Y. M. C. A. Friday, Saturday, and Stmday evenings,
September 17-19. The special purpose of the meet-
ings was to call the attention of the student body
sharply to the fundamentals which lead to the living
of the best college life.
On Friday night Dr. Brown's subject was "The
Principles that Should Guide a Man in College
Life." On Saturday and Sunday nights his themes
were I'espectively "Lining up with Christian Forces"
and "The Value of Bible Study." The Sunday ad-
dress was followed by a room-to-room canvass for
members in the Bible study groups which resulted
in the enrollment of more than 250 members.
Dr. Brown is remembered at the University as
the preacher of a most powerful baccalaureate ser-
uum in the early nineteen hundreds, and he is greatly
.in demand as a speaker to college men. His com-
ing to the association as its initial speaker will pro-
foundly affect the association's work for the year.
I)r. L. A. Williams, of the School of Education,
who was ill with tpyhoid fever during the summer,
returned to his work on September 20th.
DR. PHILLIPS PRESIDENT
In the election of Dr. William B. Phillips to the
presidency of the Colorado School of Mines at Den-
ver last Summer, the University achieved the distinc-
tion of furnishing the president of another leading
college of the country.
Dr. Phillips was a member of the class of 1877
and for many years has been connected with the
department of geology and mining of the Univer-
sity of Texas and the State Geological Survey. Dr.
Phillips assumed the duties of his new office on
September first. He represented the University of
Texas at President Graham's inauguration in April.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE UNIVERSITY IS PROFOUNDLY GRATEFUL
Editor Alumni Eeview :
Sir: — I would like for the following extract from
President Graham's letter to me to go in the forthcom-
ing issue of The Alumni Review. Therefore, I am
sending this extract direct to you so that you may in-_
sert the same where the various members of the class
of 1905 can see the thanks of President Graham so
beautifully expressed in behalf of the University for
the class gift given by our class last Commencement.
He says : "I am going to say to you, and through you
to the members of your class, if you have any oppor-
tunity of getting word to them, that the University
has a profound sense of gratitude for what they did,
not merely in the money subscribed, but in the spirit
shown and in the movement started — I believe that
we can make a big thing out of this idea and make it
an idea of both material and spiritual value to the
University and to the men who keep in this practical,
conscious touch with her. I am greatly interested in
keeping the alumni in intelligent contact with Uni-
versity affairs, and in trying to see if it is possible
for them to be so informed about our business that
they can advise and co-operate with us in all matters
that concern the management of the University.
"Again assuring you of my great appreciation, and

SHALL THE UNITED STATES ENLARGE ITS NAVY?
The query for the contest for 1016 of the High
School Debating Union of North Carolina has been
decided upon. It is "Resolved^ That the United
States should adopt the policy of greatly enlarging its
ISTavy." A bulletin of material on both sides of this
query is now being prepared, and will be sent to all
schools which are members of the Union.
The Union is conducted jointly by the Di and Phi
Societies and the Bureau of Extension. Membership
in it is open to any secondary or high school in the
State. The first annual contest was held in 1913,
and that year 90 schools with 360 debaters took part.
In 1914, 150 schools with 600 debaters participated.
In 1915, 250 schools with 1000 debaters participated.
It is the expectation of the committee that this year's
contest will be considerably the largest of all.
To the school winning out finally the Aycock Mem-
orial Cup will he awarded. This cup has been won
previously by the Pleasant Garden, Winston-Salem
and Wilson high schools, respectively.

NEW WORK FOR THE Y. M. C. A.
The Y. M. C. A. has for years rendered new men
valuable assistance during the summer previous to
their entering the University and especially during
the trying period of registration. After that it has
concerned itself with their welfare through its social
and devotional meetings, but has not continued the
special services offered at registration.
A new plan has been put into operation this year
through what is known as the Continuation Com-
mittee. As heretofore the members of this committee,
some 35 in number, wrote letters to the prospective
students, saw that they were met at the station when
they came to the Hill, helped them in finding rooms,
boarding houses, and in registering. IvTow they pro-
pose to continue this sort of relationship, in so far as
it is practicable, throughout the entire freshman
year. Somewhat like the faculty advisers, their
purpose is to maintain with their groups of ten or
more new men the helpful relationships already es-
tablished. They approach their work, however, from
the point of view of fellow members of the student
body. The plan is admirable in conception and is
now in successful operation.
FACULTY ADVISERS AT WORK WITH NEW MEN
Adhering to the plan adopted in 1913 of having
members of the faculty act as advisers to the members
of the freshman class, the University, through Dean
Stacy's ofBce, mailed out to the faculty ten days after
registration the names of the new men. As a result
of this plan the new students are becoming acquaint-
ed with their instructors in an informal way and at
the very beginning of their college careers are enabled
to draw upon the e.xperience and suggestion of those
who are able to be of real service to them. The entire
class of 350 men is distributed among 45 members
of the faculty, each member having about 8 men
READINGS FOR FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES
Under the direction of the department of English
a section of the open shelving at the desk in the
Library has been filled with selected readings for
the men in the two lower classes. The books have
been carefully chosen, are representative of varying
interests, and if read intelligently by the younger
members of the student body, will add greatly to the
general effectiveness of their work in the I'niversity
as well as to their fund of general information.
CHANCELLOR KIRKLAND IS SPEAKER FOR
Dr. James Hampton Kirkland, Chancellor of
Vanderbilt University, has been secured to deliver
the University Day address on October l:-'tli. His
subject will be "Patriotism, a New Interpretation."
Other features of the celebration of the day will
be the procession of the student body and faculty',
and a report on the work of the University by Presi-
dent Graham. A large number of alumni are ex-
pected to be present.
HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL CONTINUED
The state high school championship contest in
football will be continued this fall by the greater
council and the alumni athletic association. The
final game will be played in Chapel Hill early in
December, and a cup will be awarded the winning
team. Quite a large degree of interest has been
manifested among the high schools and a lively con-
test is expected. The Ealeigh high school team
coached by G. B. Phillips, '13, won the championship
in 1913 and again in 1914.
BOOK EXCHANGE OPENS
After an interval of sixteen years the University
has again opened a book exchange. This time it is
quartei-ed in what has been the game room of the
Y. M. C. A. just across the drive way from the south
end of the Old West, the home of the former "Co-op."
The present exchange is the outgrowth of an effort
on the part of the Y. M. C. A. to supply l)ooks at low
cost to the student body. It is under University
management, and student book supplies, stationery,
etc., are to be supplied. Coupons are given with every
sale and at the end of each month whatever profit has
been made by the exchange is shared with the pur-
chasers. J. Tucker Day, '15, is manager.
RAILROAD BONDS VOTED
On September 25th, at an election held in Bing-
ham and Chapel Hill townships, a bond issue for the
building of the Alamance, Orange, and Durham elec-
tric Railway was voted. The company, which is al-
ready operating a line from Burlington to Graham
and other points in Alamance county, has five years
in which to build and begin operating the line.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
Geeenlaw, Edwin. — "Familiar Letters," English
and American, chosen and edited with Introduc-
tion and Notes. Pp. 309. Scott, Foresman & Co.,
An important contribution to the already well-
known "Lake Series of English Classics" is made by
Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, head of the English Depart-
ment in the University of North Carolina, in his
recently published volume of "Familiar Letters."
These have been edited with critical skill and acute
insight as to what constitutes charm and personality
in letter writing.
For the present volume some 118 letters have been
chosen from the rich and wide field of English letters.
The notes and helps for careful study are very full
and suggestive. By no means the least interesting
feature of the book is the introduction by the editor,
which fills thirty pages. The beginnings of letter
writing are suggested, and the evolution of the letter
from the more formal and stilted type to the "Famil-
iar Letter" of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries
is entertainingly shown.
The volume includes letters, rich in personality
and charm, by the following English writers: Wil-
liam Paston, Dorothy Osborne, Addison, Steele^
Gray, Cowper, Burns, Lamb, Jane Welch Carlyle,
Dickens, Stevenson, and Huxley. America is repre-
sented by Franklin, Washington, Irving, Emerson,
and Lincoln, among others. Forty-one writers, in
all, are represented.
FoEESTEE^ Manchestee, AND YouNG. — "Essays f.jr
College Men," second series. Holt, 1915.
The second series of "Essays for College Men,"
edited by Associate Professor Norman Foerster of
the University of North Carolina and Professors
Manchester and Young of the University of Wis-
consin, resembles the first series in general plan, but
differs in that the contents not only deal with prob-
lems of .science and culture in the closer educational
sense, but range to the wide issues of democracy and
war. Those college courses which base the teaching
of English composition on a system of training stu-
dents to read and digest what they read will find the
book useful for selection from Huxley, Emerson, and
Newman among the dead, and from Woodrow Wil-
son, Paul Elmer ilore, and Arthur Balfour among
the living. Certainly the undergraduate whose
freshman days are spent in this company should
find himself strengthened, throughout his four years,
in what the motto of the book designates as "the
power of conduct, the power of intellect and knowl-
edge, the power of beauty, and the power of social
life and manners."
The July issue of Shidies in Philology contains an
important discussion by Professor Graves, of Trinity,
of the "Act Time" in Elizabethan Theatres. This
article was read to the Philological Club at one of
the last meetings of the year. Professor Graves
brings abundant evidence to prove that the Five Act
division in the Elizabethan Drama was not a mere
convention, but was set off by songs, dancing, and
other forms of entertainment. Mr. Graves also gives
much interesting material on such subjects as the
duration of performance, the hour of performance,
and other questions connected with the presentation
of the plays. The entire essay is marked by a breadth
of reading and fullness of illustration that render it
an important contribution to our knowledge of the
Elizabethan stage, and it will add materially to Pro-
fessor Graves' growing reputation as an authority on
all matters pertaining to English stage craft in the
Announcement was made in Raleigh on October
1st that the owners of the old Commons Hall were to
transfer the title to the proj^ertv to the University.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
GIFTS OF FINE SUGGESTION
Two recent gifts to the University of North Caro-
lina, while of small intrinsic value as gifts to edu-
cational institutions are measured these days, are by
force of special circumstance of the highest impor-
tance to the institution.
One, an unreserved gift of -$1,000 to the Univer-
sity's treasury, reflects the appreciation in which the
class of 1905, ten years over the wall and into the
world, holds its Alma Mater.
The other, the cherished collection of classical
Greek and Latin authors, represented the passion for
his work held by a loved professor, Charles W. Bain,
and goes to remain in the library for all time as a
memorial of the man to whom it belonged and as an
inspiration to scholarship to generations of students
yet to come.
There is great opportunity in the State for concert
of movement among all University classes yet in the
harness of active work to follow the example of the
class of 1905 and according to their means, join in a
like sort of free gift to an institution that through
the years has done so much with so little, and needs
so much in order to accomplish the things ever press-
ing in upon it for accomplishment.
There is suggestion of value, also, to the growing
number of collectors in the State, whether University
alumni or not, in the gifts of the Bain and Alexan-
der and other collections which have gone to build
up and render a matter of State pride the magnifi-
cent library that in many respects is unique among
institutions of its kind in the country. — Raleigh
"A CALL FOR HELP"
Xot large in size, a single sheet of five columns, the
University of North Carolina News Letter is not
alone an innovation in the State but it is a publication
which is doing a real service, and doing it well, in
emphasizing what is being done and what ought to l)e
done for the upbuilding of the State.
We make this reference to that publication that we
may call attention to its statement and request under
the caption of "A Call For Help" in which it says:
'"The edition of the University News Letter is now
7,000. The mails have brought us 1,500 names since
the first of last May, and new requests come daily.
We must keep within our small budget allowance
for printer's ink, paper, press work and postage. We
are, therefore, under the necessity of revising our
Just now we are concerned about knowing who on
our list has time to read the News Letter. Please
drop us a card about it."
Candidly, we do not believe that there will be one
postal card received which will stop the visits of the
News Letter. The News and Observer wants it to
come straight along to it, for it is a publication worth
while. In fact, we hope that it can be arranged to
extend its circulation, for it ought to go to every
part of this country to show what is offered in North
Carolina. The publication is doing service for the
State. — News and Observer.
A CROP OF JOURNALISTS
Annoimeement of a series of articles for early pub-
lication in the North American Review by L. Ames
Brown, '10, calls renewed attention to recent work in
the field of national jouralism being done by a group
of young North Carolinians, who were in the little
group that composed the first class in journalism
organized in this State. Brown, who is the Wash-
ington correspondent of the New York Sun, had an
article in the Atlantic Monthly during the summer on
''National Prohibition" and another in the same ma-
gazine on "The Era of Peace." Q. S. Mills, a college
mate of Brown, and now of the editorial staff of the
New York Evening Sun, has an article in The Out-
lool- on "The Commission Form of Government in
New York." Louis Graves, of the same college gener-
ation, has an article in the August Century. Graves,
who has been unusually successful as a magazine
writer, both of special articles and short stories, con-
tributed a story to the July American. Charles
Phillips Russell, '04, has also had important work
with the Philadelphia Record and New York Call
and won a place in the magazines. Other men from
the same college generation, who are successful in
practical journalism, are O. J. Coffin and Victor
Stephenson of the Charlotte Observer; W. E. Yel-
verton and Nixon Plummer, Washington correspon-
dents. Sam Faraliee and W. S. Dickson come in the
same group. S. P. Winters, Brevard Stephenson,
F. H. May, W. M. Jones and Leon Applewhite be-
long to a more recent group.
The Carolina Journal of Pharmacg, of which the
second number appeared in August, met with warm
commendation at the recent meeting of the North
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association held in Dur-
ham. Its management was praised for undertaking
its publication, and the Association went on record
as wishing it to become its regular organ in the

NEW EXTENSION BULLETIN AT PRESS
Immediate plans for the Bureau of Extension for
1915-16 provide for the further development of all
the work undertaken jDreviously and for the publi-
cation of bulletins in new fields. The first of these
to go to press is a sj^ecial study of the geography of
Orange county, and is the work of Dean Noble, of
the School of Education. The bulletin will furnish
an admirable model for the writing of geographies of
the 99 other counties of the State. The advance
sheets of the publication have been seen by a number
of North Carolina teachers and have been commented
U23on most favorably.
The University is in possession of moving picture
films of the inauguration of President Graham last
April. During the Summer school the reels were
run locally by the Pickwick in connection with a
reguiar jaerformance. Governor Craig, Secretary
Daniels, President Graham, the march of the differ-
ent classes and representatives of learned societies
and colleges, were splendidly caught by the camera,
and the pictures were especially clear and interesting.
The reels will probably be shown throughout the State
during the winter.
CAPTAIN BOB OF THE NATIONAL GUARD
Bob Eejaiolds has written a scenario and put on the
screen a five reel drama entitled, "Captain Bob of
the National Guard." It is a romance in which our
old friend Bob is the dashing hero. Prominent fig-
ures in this photo-jDlay are General Leonard Wood
of the U. 'S. Army and the Honorable Josephus Dan-
iels of the Navy. An effort is on foot to bring this
live photoplay to the Pickwick, the real home of good
pictures in Chapel Hill. — Tar Heel.
KENNETH ROYAL, '14, ELECTED EDITOR
Kenmeth Eoyall, '14, a student in the Harvard
Law School since his graduation here m 1914, has
been elected to a position on the editorial staff of
the Harvard Law Bevieiv. The Beview is now issu-
ing its 28th volume and is one of the leading law
publications of the country.
CORRESPONDENCE STUDY DIVISION
In continuance of last year's plans, the Bureau of
Extension, through its Correspondence Study Divi-
sion, is offering additional courses of University
grade and is preparing to begin an entirely new work
for teachers in the elementary schools. Forty stu-
dents were enrolled in the courses offered last year,
and from the advance inquiries received it appears
that several hundred may be enrolled for the special
work to be done in the "Eeading Circle" courses.
This work has been undertaken by the Peabody
School of Education of the University at the request
of the State Department of Education through Dr.
J. Y. Joyner and Mr. E. E. Sams. The courses as
outlined by the School of Education have been ap-
proved by the State Department, and upon their com-
pletion by teachers the usual Eeading Circle diplo-
ma will be awarded.
