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. 
In the young men entering its doors for the first time 

this year, Carolina finds its real work and supreme 


The University's birthday, October 12th, is but a 
few days otf. Already letters of greeting and sug- 
UNIVERSITY gpstion for the observance of the day 
_ .„ have been sent the alumni by Presi- 

dent Graham and the alumni com- 
mittee here and preparations are being made through- 
out the State and in cities outside wherever there are 
bands of Carolina men, to celebrate the day with 
appropriate meetings and to plan for alma mater's 
future growth. 

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 
tlie county papers carry every week or so items of 
University news. 


From present indications, more local celebrations 

of University Day will be held this year than usual. 

. .^«./-..TT-.crr. Everv alumnus, wherever he may be,

will be interested m seeing what the 

nature of these celebrations was and what alumni 

were present. There is one and only one way by 

which this interest can be gratified — by the local 


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.

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 
enterprise and the fine abilities of the editor, T. J. 
Wilson, Jr., '94, are such as to insure a publica- 
tion which will in every sense he adequate to the 
needs of the University and alummi. The Review 
bespeaks for the management the hearty co-operation 
of all the alumni and places at the editor's disposal 
all the means which it possesses which may be of 
service in bringing out a successful i^ublication. 


In 1914 the class of 1909, at its five year reunion, 
carried off the hoinors for having introduced to the

distinctive from the first appearance of the acade- 
mic procession on the athletic field until the echoes of 
Frank Graham's wonderful presentation speech be- 
came lost in the woods beyond the athletic field fence. 
In 1915 the local committee scored a success when it

Both these achievements have fired the zeal of 
1911. In consequence, a committee of the class met

poses to demonstrate to all other classes assembled

During the three years of its existence The Re- 
view has had but little to sav about itself. As it 
begins its fourth year, it does not 
contemplate breaking this rule, but 
it wishes to ask the hearty, thought- 
ful co-operation of all the alumni to make it more 
effective than it has been. It wishes to request par- 
ticularly that the alumni send notes concerning them- 
selves or other alumni for publication, that more 
letters and original papers be contributed, and that

easily one of the most interesting of the alumni pub-

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- 
dent body. 

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 


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 
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- 


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 


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. 


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 
are taken: 

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 
actually given. 

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 
now and it is not too much to expect that the number 
to be present in 1916 will reach the 1000 mark. 


A few copies of the Inaugural Proceedings are still 
available for distribution. They will be sent free to 
the first alumni who apply for them to E. R. Rankin, 
Chapel Hill, N. C. 


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 
droj) kicking. 

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. 



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. 


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 
by Preston H. Epps, 1915, as instructor. 

E. W. Turlington, A. B. 1911, returns to the 
University from Oxford, to succeed W. H. Eoyster 
as instructor in Latin. 

W. W. Rankin, A. B. 1912, returns to the Uni 
versity from Harvard as instructor in mathematics. 

W.'W. Pierson, Jr., A. B. 1910, and A. M. 1911, 
of the University of Alabama, and instructor in his- 
tory, in Columbia University, 1914r-'15, succeeds F. 
P. Graham, 1909, as instructor in history. Mr. 
Graham goes to Columbia where he is a scholar in 

T. C. Boushall, A. B. 1915, succeeds Mr. Graham 
as Secretary of the Young Men's Christian Associa- 


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 
Picture Post Cards, Moving Pictures, etc. 

Later in the year a detailed study of the county 
tax books of the State will be made for a nimiber of 
the counties. From a few studies made in this field 



The Stadium on Emerson Field in Process of Construction Sept. 30th. 

SO far it is expected that these investigations will 
throw great light upon the important question of 
Xorth Carolina taxes. 

Up to the present time the followiug men have in- 
dicated their willingness to act as secretaries of the 
various county grouj^s having membership in the club. 
Inquiries sent them by alumni and others from their 
home counties will be promptly answered :

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. 


Professor M. H. Stacy was one of the speakers at 
the Ilillsboro Chautauqua on September 25th. 

The three hundred odd freshmen were given re- 
serve seats iin Gerrard Hall, Thursday, September 9, 
on the occasion of "College Night" as the activities 



and spirit of the caniiDus were reeled off by repre- 
sentative upi^er classmen. Thomas C. Boushall, '15, 
the energetic secretary of the Young Men's Christian 
Association, presided, and in the words of Sam New- 
man of Russian Poland, "He had a pep." Charles 
Coggins, cheer leader, who put must in mustard, 
kejit the gathering well sauced and gingered. Meb 
Long's Band filled in with lively airs. 

Francis F. Bradshaw, president of the Senior 
Class, explained the jirinciples of student government 
and the honor spirit of the college. W. B. Umstead, 
intercollegiate debater, spoke of the nature and the 
value of the Literary Societies. Charlie Coggins, 
president of the Dramatic Club, with characteristic 
wit, told of the doings of the club and pointed out its 
new place as a college -activity. Merrel Parker, presi- 
dent of the Young Men's Christian Association and 
varsity fullback, sounded the challenge of the Young 
Men's Christian Association for clean living and 
social service in the University community. Philip 
Woollcott, '15, ex-captain of the track team, stressed 
the influence of athletics in a man's rounded develop- 
ment and called every student to vigorous exercise. 
Captain Dave Tayloe was called for by a unanimous 
crowd aud he punched up the growing football en- 

The crowd adjourned from Gerrard Hall to the 
Y. M. C. A. Reception give to the college at the 
University library where were gathered fair ladies 
and cream and cake set off by green trees, hanging 
honeysuckle, and roses in pink, and red, and white. 
The accordeon band and the piano vied for the floor 
and all the while there was welcome, laughter and the 
happy hubliub of youth.

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 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 


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 


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. 


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. 



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." 


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 
gymnastic training. 

W. B. Barrow, of Raleigh, is contractor and Hook 
and Rodgers, of Charlotte, are the architects. 


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. 


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.

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 
that of the University, I am, Cordially yours, Ed- 
ward K. Graham." 

Yours truly, 

Charlotte, N. C. Wm. T. Shore, 

Secretary and Treasurer of Class of 1905. 

The committee which has charge of the contest this 
year is composed of N. W. Walker, Chairman, E. R.. 
Rankin, Secretary, L. R. Wilson, W. C. Rymer, H. 
B. Hester, J. R. Patton, Jr., H. B. Black, A. M. 
Coats, and A. O. Jones. 


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. 


Nineteen young men from the University School

Information has recently been received at the Uni- 
versity of the following appointments to scholarships 
or fellowships of Carolina men who are studying at 
other universities this winter : 

J. W. Lasley, of Burlington, fellow in mathematics 
at Johns Hopkins ; F. P. Graham, of Charlotte, scho- 
lar in history at Columbia ; W. P. M. Weeks, of 
Washington, D. C, scholar in history at Johns Hop- 
kins ; H. M. Blalock, of Raleigh, scholar in history at 
Johns Hopkins ; W. R. Taylor, of Louisburg, scholar 
in English at Harvard; W. C. D. Kerr, of Greens- 



boi'o, fellow in romance languages at the Um^versity 
of Chicago; Baldwin Maxwell, of Charlotte, scholar 
in English at the University of Chicago ; L. jST. 
ilorgan, on leave of absence from the University 
of Oklahoma, scholar in English at Harvard; C. S. 
Venable and Duncan McRae, scholars in chemistry 
at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 


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. 


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 
assigned him. 


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. 


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. 


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. 


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. 


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.

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 
sixteenth centurv. 

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. 




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 


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 
mailing list. 

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. 


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 




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. 


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. 


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. 


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. 


The July number of the North Carolina High 
School Bulletin, edited by Professor N. W. Walker, 
contains in addition to four pages of "Comments," 
by the editor, the following articles by members of 
the University faculty: "The Good Teacher," by 
Professor H. H. Williams; "The Eecent Spelling 
Test," by Dr. H. W. Chase; "Eural School Super- 
vision," by Professor Z. V. Judd ; and "Book Ee- 
views," by Dr. L. A. Williams. Copies may be se- 
cured by addressing the editor. 

Eight issues of the Summer School Weeliy, the 
oflicial organ of the University Summer School, ai> 
peared in June and July. Seven numbers, compris- 
ing volume 1, ajjpeared in 1914. It is one half the 
size of the Tar Heel, is printed by the University 
Press, and is very widely read by the student body. 

During the last week in September Dr. Louis E. 
Wilsou, of the library, and members of the depart- 
ment of English, gave the entire freshman class 
special instruction at the Library in the nse of the 
card catalogue, periodical indexes, and a half dozen 
of the more important general reference works. 

During the summer vacation the Methodist congre- 
gation of Chapel Hill installed a pipe organ in the 
Methodist Church. It is built by the Brown Organ 
Company, of Wilmington, Del., and represents an 
expenditure of $1800. A special recital was given 
on it in the church by Mrs. A. S. Wheeler on Friday 
evening of the opening week of the LTniversity. 

Prof. E. C. Branson attended the third annual 
County Conference for Watauga. The conference 
was held in Boone and Prof. Branson addressed it on 
September 24th. He is to speak at Holly Springs 
October 8th. 

Professor H. H. Williams is to address the Meck- 
lenburg alumni in Charlotte on University Day.
