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 men. 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 opportunity. nan 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. nan From present indications, more local celebrations of University Day will be held this year than usual. . .^«./-..TT-.crr. Everv alumnus, wherever he may be, A REQUEST .,, ; . , . . , i 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 THE ALUMNI REVIEW 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. DDD 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 BRING GIFTS 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. nan 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. nnn No recent announcement has given The Review more satisfaction than that made by President Grra- . .

This, as The 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. nnn In 1914 the class of 1909, at its five year reunion, carried off the hoinors for having introduced to the 1911 BEGINS f'""Piis a new sort of real, up-to- FARIY '^'^'^^ mirth-provoking alumni per- formance. The conferring of the honorary degree on ''Horny Handed Henry" was 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 threw the luncheon open to the ladies and carried through to a hapjjy ending the delightful cabaret features. Both these achievements have fired the zeal of 1911. In consequence, a committee of the class met at the Hill in mid-summer, definite plans were be- gun, and at Commencement next June, 1911 pro- THE ALUMNI REVIEW poses to demonstrate to all other classes assembled just how a real alumni celebration should be carried out.

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 The Review is in receipt of an announcement from the University of Virginia Alumni Neivs that UNIVERSITY OF '^^ ^^^ ceased publication because VIRriNIA °"^ ^^^ ^^^^ ^^^ ^* ^^^ ^^^ ^^^^' ALUMNI NEWS supporting. The Alumni News be- gan publication soon after The Review was started. It contained twelve pages of printed matter per issue and was issued fortjnightly. The subscription price was $2.00 per year. Splen- didly edited, and attractive in appearance, it was easily one of the most interesting of the alumni pub- lications on The Review's exchange list and The Review genuinely regrets its passing. 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- 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 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- science. 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 himself. 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 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. INAUGURAL PROCEEDINGS 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. THE ALUMNI REVIEW Summer School Scene from the Fourth of July Celebration, 1915 ATHLETICS 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. 10 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.

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.

Mr. Graham goes to Columbia where he is a scholar in history. T. C. Boushall, A. B. 1915, succeeds Mr. Graham as Secretary of the Young Men's Christian Associa- tion. 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 20th. 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- jects. 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 ALUMNI REVIEW 11 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.

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. COLLEGE NIGHT 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 12 THE ALUMNI REVIEW 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- thusiasm. 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.

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 14 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 Government." 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 University. 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 work. 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 effect. The cost of the Memorial approximates $5000. THE ALUMNI REVIEW 15 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 gymnastic training. 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. Coaches Duff, Cu.mnincham, Trenciiard, a.nd Captain Tavi.ok 16 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 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. 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.

S. Venable and Duncan McRae, scholars in chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 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 assigned him. 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 UNIVERSITY DAY 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. 18 THE ALUMNI REVIEW THE ALUMNI REVIEW Issued monthly except in July, August, and September, by the General Alumni Association of the University of North Carolina.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS Geeenlaw, Edwin. — "Familiar Letters," English and American, chosen and edited with Introduc- tion and Notes. Pp. 309. Scott, Foresman & Co., 1915. 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. THE ALUMNI REVIEW 19 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 Times. "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 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. 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 State. 20 THE ALUMNI REVIEW 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. INAUGURATION PICTURES 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 ENLARGES WORK 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. CAMPUS AND TOWN 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.
