Ex-Governor Harmon Has Said: 

"There is no decivilizing agency like want. It soon destroys the innocence of 
children, the chastity of women, the honesty, loyalty and self-respect of men. 

"The history of every community shows that the vicious and criminal come chiefly 
from families left unprovided for before they are capable of self-support. The poor 
widow has to struggle for her children's bread. She cannot train or educate them. So 
they are likely to become the prey of chance, which is usually evil."

Volume IV 


Number 2 


An analysis of the telegrams and letters of greet- 
ing sent from every quarter by the alumni on Uni- 
ALUMNI versity Day, and of the accounts of 

FINANCIAL local alumni association meetings held 
SUPPORT— in celebration of the University's 
A SUGGES- 122nd birthday, points unmistakably 
TI0N to two facts: (1) That the alumni 

dearly recognize the University's increasing need 
for support in extending its great work, and (2) that 
they genuinely desire to have a part in providing this 

With these facts so manifestly evident, and with 
the gift of $1000 by the class of 1905 in mind, The 
Review desires to call the serious attention of the 
alumni to a plan, by which, if put in operation, the 
sort of aid contemplated can effectually be given. 

The plan instanced (for details see pages 42-8 
in this issue)- is that which has been in operation at 
Yale for twenty-five years and which, up to June, 
1915, the end of the twenty-fifth year, has brought to 
Yale a total of $1,429,604.83, of which $797,466.94 
has been set aside as endowment, and $632,137.89 
has been used by Yale for general university pur- 

The basic idea of the Yale plan is for every alum- 
nus to contribute something to the fund annually. 
This contribution can be sent to the class secretary- 
treasurer and forwarded through him to Yale, or it 
can be sent direct to the Yale treasurer who is author- 
ized to receive such contributions. In either case, the 
amount is placed in the alumni fund and proper 
credit is given to the class and the individual donor. 
When classes return to Yale for special reunions 
they are expected to make their contributions larger 
than in other years. 

This fund is administered by a board of directors 
appointed from the alumni by the president of the 
university, one-third being appointed annually for a 
period of three years. The board thus selected is 
separate and distinct from the general alumni asso- 
ciation or other Yale organizations. The con- 
tributions made to the fund are unconditional, with 
the exceptions that a part of the total for each year 
must be set aside as endowment and the remainder 
must be used by the university in carrying on its 
genera] work. 

The existence of this fund in no way affects gifts 
made to the university for specific purposes, such, 
for example, as gifts for special buildings or other 
special objects. It merely brings together the many 
small, unrestricted gifts made by individuals through- 
out a period of years and makes possible their effec- 
tive use for some general purpose. In the event that 
class organizations are weak, or secretaries and treas- 
urers do not follow up their work systematically, the 
university is spared the loss through the services of 
a well organized, energetic board whose sole purpose 
of existence is to see that every alumnus has an op- 
portunity to give and to give in such a way as will 
advance the interests of Yale. 

Other universities have slightly different plans. 
They are, however, in general much alike. This one 
has effectually met the situation at Yale. The rea- 
sons for citing this plan are (1) to bring the fact 
home to the alumni that it is possible for us to work 
out a method by which we can effectively realize our 
desire by vitally helping the University, and (2) to 
start the movement which will lead to this end. 


The Review believes that there are thousands of 

alumni who cannot give great gifts to the University 

who are eager to have the opportun-

there would be enough similar contributions to make

idea in the University Alumni Fund. Tt is to give

chance. Membership in the fund would be entirely

The University News Letter, published weekly by 
the Bureau of Extension of the University, com- 
pleted its first volume Nov. 10th 
? r ?^?.J J ?^I5 R and will begin its second year Nov. 
17th. Although this one-page pub- 
lication has been published only one 
year, it is safe to say that it has achieved an un- 
usually signal success, and the University is to be 
genuinely congratulated upon having established it. 
No paper in the State is more widely quoted from 
week in and week out by the other papers of the 
State, and certainly no other paper in North Caro- 
lina has made a more intensive study of State eco- 
nomic and social conditions than it has. 

The Review directs the attention of the alumni 
to this publication at this time for two special rea- 
sons: (1) They can give it their hearty support as a 
medium through which the University is most ef- 
fectively reaching the people of North Carolina ; 
and (2) they can aid the University in placing it 
locally throughout the State where it will render 
greatest service. 


The many telegrams appearing on other pages and 
accounts of local alumni meetings held throughout 
the length and breadth of the coun- 
UNIVERSITY t on University Day, bear elo- 
DAY— A STATE J /,, /' . , . , 

EVENT qucnt testimony to the love m which 

the University is held by its sons. 
From articles appearing in the State press and from 
editorial expressions, it is also apparent that the cele- 
bration of the day is an event in which the State as a 
whole is becoming more and more interested. The 
following editorial from the Charlotte Observer gives 
fitting expression to this growing sense of apprecia- 
tion of the University on the part of the citizenship 
of the State as a whole: 

"October 12 is known to history as the date on 
which Christopher Columbus discovered the outposts 
of the New World. To tens of thousands in North 
Carolina, throughout America, and the islands of the 
sea, however, it has another significance which is 
uppermost in their minds. It is the anniversary of 

one of the most significant of the early events in the 
history of the University of North Carolina, the lay- 
ing of the corner stone of the Old East Building in 
1793, and by long-standing custom it has been ac- 
cepted as the day on which to celebrate the birth of 
the institution. Formerly this observance was con- 
fined to Chapel Hill. Now it is country-wide, and 
even as the movement has broadened, so it has in- 
tensified at home, the result being the most elaborate 
observance which the University knows, except com- 
mencement. Interest is not, or should not be, con- 
fined merely to those who have enjoyed the advan- 
tages of training within its walls, but it should ex- 
tend to all North Carolinians, for the institution be- 
longs to every man and woman in the State. Particu- 
larly at this time when its star is burning most bril- 
liantly, presaging a career of broader usefulness than 
it has ever known, it is appropriate that the entire 
State should pause on this. University Day, for self- 
gratulation that destiny has brought into being and 
has conserved for the youth of today and for posterity 
a vital asset whose value is so priceless." 

□ DD 

Have you ever thought of a program for the cele- 
bration of University Day at the Hill something like 

WOULD YOU this: ^ Exercis< : s in the m oming, 
LIKE THIS ? with parade, etc., of student body, fac- 
ulty, and a big number of alumni; 
(2) a tempting barbecue dinner out on the campus 
served up in fine style by the University chef at, say, 
fifty cents per plate; and (3) a real football game 
with Vanderbilt on the new Emerson field along 
about 3 :30 P. M. ? These questions are not asked to 
tantalize the alumni. In days gone by, possibly, 
they could not be effectively answered. But the 
coming of the new Commons and the Emerson field 
make their answer easy. 

Would you like to see this program carried out? 
If so, write the Graduate Manager of the Athletic 
Association and let him know. It, or something very 
much like it, is a possibility if it is desired ! 


In the first six games of the season — all that the 
Varsity has played as The Review goes to press — 
three victories, a tie, and two defeats 
TO DATE have been recorded by Carolina. Ex- 

pressed in total points won and lost, 
the count stands 64 for and 78 against. Expressed 
in terms of comparative expectations, the Varsity has 
won but slight success where it was expected to win 
hands down, and it has been severely beaten where 
it was expected to hold its own. 



What the remaining schedule will hring forth re- 
mains to be seen. The team is now playing in the 
main its third season under a coaching system of 
three years continuity. If it worked under adverse 
physical conditions at the beginning of the season, 
these have largely been removed. If it was over-con- 
fident at the start, there should no longer be any 
occasion for danger from this quarter. It has un- 
questioned ability as a fighting organization. This 
it clearly demonstrated in the last half of the Wake 
Forest game and in many instances in the Clemson 
game. It remains for the team itself and the coach- 
ing staff to keep the spirit of intelligent aggressive- 
ness to the fore. 


In other columns are to be fouud announcements 
concerning the plans and schedules of the clubs which 
are to represent the University 
throughout the State within the 
next few months. From the an- 
nouncements it appears that the high standard of ex- 


cellence which has in recent years characterized the 
work of the organizations may be expected to be 
maintained, and if anything, exceeded this season. 
In view of this fact, The Review wishes to draw the 
attention of all the alumni in the towns which are 
to be visited to the aid which they can render the 
University by being at the performances themselves 
and seeing that the clubs play to full houses. A play 
well rendered or a pleasing concert by the musical 
clubs can advertise the University most favorably 
provided the people of the community played to are 
present. This suggestion does not apply to those two 
or three or four alumni in each town who give gen- 
erously of their time and energy in making the en- 
gagement happy and successful for the club. 
Thanks heaped up and running over for them ! The 
suggestion is for the alumnus who has let them as- 
sume the whole task unaided, and in many instances 
has failed to invite others to be present and has not 
been present himself ! 


The One Hundred and Twenty-Second Anniversary is Fittingly Observed on the Campus 

by the University, Alumni, and Friends 

Tuesday, October 12th, featured by the longest 
procession of students which ever marched from the 
Alumni Building to Memorial Hall, and by the force- 
ful address on "Patriotism" by the guest of honor of 
the day, Dr. J. EL Kirkland, chancellor of Vander- 
bilt University, was fittingly observed on the Hill 
as the one hundred and twenty-second anniversary 
of the University. The student body, faculty, alum- 
ni, and friends, participated in the celebration. 

Chancellor Kirkland Speaks 

Following the invocation by Rev. Homer W. Starr, 
of the Episcopal church, and the singing of the Uni- 
versity hymn, President Graham introduced Chan- 
cellor Kirkland. He referred in happy vein to the 
rivalries in debate and athletics between Carolina 
and Vanderbilt, and emphasized the service Vander- 
bilt, under the guidance of Chancellor Kirkland, had 
rendered the South as one of its greatest universities. 
Two particulars in which he considered it to have 
served most notably were the setting up of high stand- 
ards in athletics and in defining the entrance re- 
quirements of Southern colleges and universities. 

Chancellor Kirkland's address, "Patriotism, a 
Xew Interpretation," centered around the theme of 
individual responsibility on the part of the citizen to 

sec that justice and righteousness prevailed in the new 
social order. He reviewed the progress in the indus- 
trial and commercial life of the nation, but showed 
that there had not been a corresponding advance in 
the welfare and happiness of all the people. To be a 
patriot under modern conditions, Dr. Kirkland de- 
clared it was necessary that the citizen should do his 
full part in solving the problems of taxation, city 
government, working hours for women and children, 
etc., in order that the unhappiness and injustice in- 
cident to present conditions might be properly ad- 

Upon the conclusion of the address, President Gra- 
ham read messages of ejreetinc; from the alumni. 
Dean Stacy then read, while the audience stood, the 
following list of alumni who had died since last

Letters and Telegrams from Alumni and Friends Bring Messages of Cheer and Love 

Two numbers of the program of University Day 
which linger in the memory of Alma Mater long 
after the music and the marching are forgotten are 
the reception of messages of love from the far-scat- 
tered sons and the reading of the names of those who, 
through the year, have fallen on sleep. The follow- 
ing letters and telegrams were read in Memorial Hall 
by President Graham on the one hundred and twen- 
ty-second birthday of the University: 

Batesville, Ark., Oct. 9, 1915. 
Your circular letter of the 6th, addressed "To the 
alumni of the University," reached me this morning, 
and this reply is only to send greetings from my 
western home to my fellow alumni who will assemble 
on October 12th, to celebrate University Day, and to 
bid them God-speed in their every endeavor to meet 
the ever broadening opportunities for the upbuilding 

of this great institution as the greatest force for the 
educational and moral uplift of the vouth of the 
"Old North State." 

One other member of the class of 1859, George F. 
Dixon, resides at Wynne, in Cross county, of this 
State, at the advanced age of eighty-two, with a life 
of great usefulness behind him, quietly awaiting the 
Master's summons "to come up higher," whither his 
wife of more than half a century preceeded him a few 
months ago. 

For myself it is my provilege to say that the 77th 
mile post in my journey of life was passed on Sep- 
tember 22nd, just behind me, and under the blessing 
of God it is still my privilege to do a man's work 
every day. My heart's best affections go out to my 
Alma Mater. 

Repeating and emphasizing my cordial greetings 



to each and every alumnus present or absent on Uni- 
versity Day, believe me to be ever faithfully.

ing year.

New York, N. Y., Oct. 11, 1915. 
Carolina stimulates freedom of thought. The 
University's function is to serve its constituency, the 
State. If it performs this duty efficiently it will, in

State, but from private benefactions. Congratula- 
tions on success to date and sincere good wishes for 
the future.

Excerpts from the Yale Alumni Weekly Tell a Wonderful Story of Achievement Resulting from 

Organized Alumni Giving 

[The following excerpts from the history of the 
Yale Alumni University Fund Association and vari- 
ous issues of the Yale Alumni Weekly have been re- 
produced here for the purpose of illustrating how the 
alumni of a great university can be of tremendous 
assistance to it in solving some of its many problems 
of finance. The plan devised at Yale and in success- 
ful operation there for twenty-five years is cited be- 
cause of its remarkable effectiveness. 

The reason for citing this plan is self-evident. 
The University has come to the point that its alumni 
can be of great help to it in solving its financial prob- 
lems. A satisfactory plan for the accomplishment 
of this purpose should be devised and set into opera- 
tion. It should be done now. The history of the Yale 
organization, as given in the Association's handbook 
for 1914, together with extracts from letters from its 
board of directors appearing in the Yale Alumni 
Weekly, lead the way to a careful consideration of a 
plan for Carolina alumni. — Editor.] 

History of the Alumni University Fund 

In June, 1890, the Corporation established the 
"Alumni University Fund" in response to resolutions 
of the New York alumni, and at Commencement of 

that year there was organized an association "to be 
known as 'The Alumni University Fund Associa- 
tion,' to be managed by nine directors, alumni of 
Yale, appointed by the president of the University." 

Everyone who has been a student in any school of 
the University is invited to join the association by 
contributing to the fund, and any contribution, how- 
ever small, and whether or not it is continued annual- 
ly, is sufficient qualification for membership. The 
fundamental object of the association is to induce 
universal annual giving, and encourage gifts of any 
size, however small, for general University use. 

In the work of the Alumni Fund Association each 
graduating class is now represented by a Class Agent, 
appointed by the directors of the fund. The mem- 
bers of the Board of Directors are appointed by the 
president of the University, to serve for three years, 
the appointments being confirmed by the Corporation. 
The board elects its own officers, the treasurer of the 
University serving as the treasurer of the fund. 
Through the class agents the association invites con- 
tributions, and particularly annual contributions, to 
the fund. Gifts may be sent to the class agents, or 
to the treasurer of the University, and can be made 
either unrestricted or for addition to the principal 
fund. The latter form permanent class or personal 
memorial funds. The directors may award the en- 



tire unrestricted amount to the University, to be used 
as University income, and may suggest the applica- 
tion thereof. For the last five years, at their request, 
it has been applied to increased salaries for the teach- 
ing force. Gifts to the principal of the fund are held 
in trust by the University, and interest thereon is 
credited each year to the income of the association. 
Legacies, of which a number have been received, are 
added to the principal fund, as memorials to the 

The alumni fund differs from all other funds of 
the University. It is controlled by directors chosen 
from the graduates instead of by the University au- 
thorties alone. Other funds are usually given in one 
amount, at one time, and with definite instructions 
as to use. But the alumni fund increases every year, 
and is unrestricted. The principal of the fund is a 
part of the University endowment. The gifts from 
income of the fund to University income are not con- 
fined to specific purposes. This is a great advantage 
to the University, for Yale has always been specially 
in need of money for general purposes. 

For the first year of its existence, ending June. 
1891, the Association reported 3S5 members and 
total "cash received into the fund, $11,015.08." 
Compare with this the report for the year ending 
June 30, 1914, showing 4,053 contributors, and total 
gross receipts of $150,146.36 of which $64,814.80 
was appropriated as income (made up of $36,802.67 
in gifts and $30,692.1*7 interest on principal fund, 
less expenses of $2,680.04), and $82,651.52 was 
added to principal fund (made up of class anniver- 
sary gifts of $67,651.52, and a legacy of $15,000). 

The receipts from the inauguration of the fund, in 
1890, to June 30, 1914, readied the grand total of 
$1,329,433.54, of which $744,809.01 remains as 
principal fund, and $566,858.64 has been given the 
University for annual income, the total expenses of 
management being only $20,765.89. This great work 
has been accomplished with only a small minority of 
Yale graduates as contributors. But every Yale man, 
according to his means, should join in this work, 
which is endorsed by the University authorities and 
alumni alike as vitally important to the progress of 

Extracts from the Yale Alumni Weekly 

Yale has always stood for democracy and always 


Given the choice she would infinitely prefer some- 
thing from the many than fifty times that something 
from the few. 

She wants every son to do his part, no matter how 
small — it's the doing that counts. 

The basic idea of the alumni fund is for every 
alumnus to make an annual contribution to Yale 
University, no matter how small. 

The alumni of Harvard, Princeton, and Yale have 
different methods of financially assisting their uni- 

Each Harvard class gives $100,000 or more at its 
twenty-fifth anniversary. 

Princeton classes give various amounts under vary- 
ing conditions. 

Yale classes give small amounts every year, except 
on anniversary years, when they make special gifts. 

The large yearly gift from one Harvard class 
about equals the sum of the yearly gifts from the 
Yale classes, but the Yale method has the advantage 
of keeping each class throughout its whole life in 
close touch with the University. 

The complete success of the Yale method requires 
the co-operation of all her graduates, all the time. 

Let's all pull together. 

Most gifts to the University are made with defin- 
ite instructions as to the use of income or principal, 
or both. 

All gifts to the Yale Alumni Fund Association are 
unrestricted ; only a part is required to be added to 
the principal fund. 

What have you done for Yale? 

You have drunk to her; you have yelled for her; 
you have eaten at the feasts given to her; you have 
lullabied and perhaps spouted for her. 

But what have you done for her ? 

In no way can a Yale man more easily demonstrate 
his loyalty to Yale than by joining the Alumni Fund 
Association, for any contribution, however small, 
makes you eligible. 

My deae Billy: 

You have an unbroken list of subscriptions to the 
Yale Alumni Fund for over 20 years. You started 
by giving $5.00, and then after a few Years you 
gave $50J)0. 

In 1915 the total amount received from 4157 sub- 
scribers was $124,508, of which $55,658 was added 
to the principal of the fund. $65,279 was voted to the 
corporation for current expenses, and $3,571 was 
expended for the administration of the fund. 


The revised edition of the bulletin giving in detail 
the courses offered by correspondence and lectures 
given through the Bureau of Extension is now at 
press. It will he ready for distribution not later than 
November 20th. 

Dr. Archibald Henderson addressed the Common- 
wealth Cluh of Durham November 4th. His sub- 
ject was "Bernard Shaw." 




[The Rockingham alumni held their annual ban- 
quet in the Hotel Rockingham on the night of Octo- 
ber 12th. They had as their guests all the graduates 
from Wake Forest and Trinity who reside in Rich- 
mond county together with their wives and the grad- 
uates from the colleges for women in the State. One 
place on the program was filled by Mrs. Lucy Phil- 
lips Russell who spoke most eloquently of the Uni- 
versity of the past. Her "reminiscences" are so 
worthy of permanent record that The Review repro- 
duces them here for the pleasure of all the alumni. 
— Editor.] 

To ask to give you a few personal reminiscences of 
my kinsmen who have given the love and labor of 
their lives to the University, is to open the flood 
gates. For when a woman confesses to be able to re- 
call the events of half a century and has an acquaint- 
ance at the University reaching from President 
Swain to President Graham, you may find yourselves 
in the condition of the little boy who removed just 
one sand bag from a Mississippi levee — he was swept 
away by the current. 

To me the very name of Chapel Hill brings 
"thoughts that do lie too deep for tears," visions of 
faces long vanished, the clear calling of many a voice 
now silent, and tender recollections of the thousand 
little things that make the happiness of youth. 

I think the first thing I remember clearly about my 
father, Dr. Charles Phillips, was lying close in his 
arms listening enchanted to the deep boom of his 
voice as he sang to me a quaint Welsh folk-song — 
"Good Morning, Neighbor Jones," learned in his 
childhood from his Cornish father. The door opened 
and Governor Swain walked in, his gaunt figure 
bowed, his sad, rugged face more deeply overshadow- 
ed than usual, to tell my father of the death of my 
grandfather, Dr. James Phillips, which had just 
occurred while he was holding morning prayer in the 
college chapel. He had fallen dead just as he was 
returning the greeting of a favorite pupil, Eugene 
Morehead. The next day I was carried through a 
deep March snow-storm in my aunt's arms to gaze 
for the last time on the noble face of the silver-haired 
old Englishman, whom his pupils found an exacting 
teacher, but whom his grandchildren loved as a fas- 
cinating playfellow. I see him yet as he lay, his 
favorite grey cat, "Dr. Vernon," at his feet, on a 
couch in his study 

"Dead among his books 
The peace of God in all his looks." 

In little more than a year President Swain had fol- 
lowed his friend into the Silent Land, having been 
killed in a runaway accident while out driving with 
Professor Fetter, their horse being a spirited animal 
given to Mr. Fetter by General Sherman. 

The two years following my grandfather's death 
were full of confusion, distress and anxious family 
councils. Old friends like the Martins, Hepburns, 
Fetters, Smiths, Mitchells, and Ashes were saying 
goodbye with sad faces and troubled eyes, and dis- 
appearing down the red road to Durham; old ser- 
vants were leaving, old homes changing tenants, the 
walls of a child's house of life were falling into ruins 
■ — the University lay a-dying. My father found a po- 
sition and most happy home as head of the mathe- 
matics department at Davidson College and remained 
there until the reopening of the University in 1875. 

Part of those years I spent back in Chapel Hill in 
the home of my father's sister, Mrs. C. P. Spencer. 
Someone has defined a college as: "A log of wood 
with Mark Hopkins at one end and a pupil at the 
other." The same words were true of Mrs. Spencer, 
and the group of young girls under her tuition dur- 
ing the years when "the abomination of desolation" 
sat enthroned at the University were privileged be- 
yond their own comprehension. 

Goldsmith has drawn a vivid picture of Chapel 
Hill during the years between 1868-1875: 

"Sweet smiling village, loveliest of the lawn, 
Thy sports are fled and all thy charms withdrawn ; 
Amidst thy bowers the tyrant's hand is seen, 
And desolation saddens all thy green." 

Not one of the old faculty remained, and only those 
of the village families who were too poor to get away. 
Many houses stood vacant, some were occupied by 
the "carpet bag" faculty gathered together during 
Reconstruction days, and presided over by Rev. Solo- 
mon Pool. 

In my grandfather's home lived a man named 
Marthing, head of the English department. In Dr. 
Hooper's old home, where Dr. Bain has recently died, 
dwelt Fiske P. Brewer, head of the Greek depart- 
ment, and brother to Chief Justice Brewer of the 
United States Supreme Court. Both these families 
practiced social equality with the village negroes. 
June Spencer and I used to crouch behind the high, 
grey stone walls and watch the tea parties with horri- 
fied eyes, and see with scorn unspeakable the pretty 
Marthing girls gaily flirting with negro youths in 
homes where Ruffin and Graham, Pettigrew and 



Polk, Ransom and Vance had been glad to be hon- 
ored guests. 

The lovely campus was a tangled wilderness, the 
scientific instruments were broken and destroyed, 
pictures were torn from the costly illustrated books 
on the library tallies and used to adorn the walls of 
negro cabins about the town, the buildings became the 
home of spiders and hats, with shattered windows 
that stared like the eyes of the dead. 

As I was witness to the deepest degradation of our 
beloved University, so I was present at the joyous 
re-opening in the fall of 1875, wove with my own 
hands the letters "Laus Deo" that shone above the 
head of the presiding officer, Governor Curtis H.' 
Brogden, and soon knew, at least by sight, every one 
of the sixty-live hoys whose fathers had sent them to 
bear -witness to their faith in the resurrected Uni- 
versity. My father was presiding officer of the fac- 
ulty during that first chaotic year, until the election 
of President K. P. Battle, whose eloquent life still 
speaks for itself. 

With these memories of a dying, dead, and a re- 
vived University, comes a smiling vision of a morn- 
ing last April when our boyish new president was 
inaugurated with pomp and circumstance and the 
sound of trumpet and drum; when great men, the 
learned and wise of our country, gathered to claim 
"Ed. Graham" as comrade and brother and one thou- 
sand youths went marching by where that feeble band 
of sixty-five had stood forty years ago. 

My dear old mother lay on her couch to survey her 
kinsmen, gorgeous in academic array, a son and 
grandson, a nephew, grand-nephews and great-grand- 
nephews, among them two college presidents, three 
authors, a minister of the gospel, a physician, scien- 
tists and successful husiness men, all good men and 
true, and all looking a little foolish in their man-mil- 
linery of purple and crimson, blue, yellow and scar- 
let. As they passed before her the aged face sparkled 
as a girl's as she exclaimed — "Now ! who has done 
more for the University than this old woman ?" 

Many women have done much for the University. 
At the re-opening, young girls all over the State gave 
time and talents in entertainments to replace the 
scientific instruments broken and out-of-date. Lone- 
ly, homely women whom men derided as "old maids" 
have left her their patrimony that the sons of happier 
women might be better housed. Childless women 
sitting by silent hearths have bequeathed to her their 
all. I know one place within sound of the college bell 
where lie the graves of four young girls whose broken 
hearted parents gave their inheritance to the Uni- 

More of us have given, and women yet unborn will 
give, to the University treasures beyond price, more 
valuable than houses and land, costlier than "all the 
wealth of Ormus or of Ind," dearer than father or 
mother, more precious than life — treasures bought 
with the price of a mother's love — our sons. 



( 'arolina opened the football season on the class 
field October 2nd in a slow, unsatisfactory game 
with Citadel. Over-confidence on the part of the 
Varsity, together with the effects of hot weather and 
lack of hard training, proved decidedly costly to Car- 
olina and allowed the South Carolinians to hold the 
score to 1-i to 7. 


Two hundred and fifty loyal Wake Forest support- 
ers came to the Hill on a special train on October 9th 
to do sideline work for their team in the second game 
of i lie season. They <';uno confident that they would 
win or would hold Carolina to a very close score. 
Their disappointment, consequently, was in propor- 
tion to the resulting score, 35 to 0. Dining the first 
quarter, Wake Foresl used forward and lateral passes 
to good effect, but later in the game Carolina suc- 
ceeded in blocking that form of play. Captain Tay- 

loe, Love, Homewood, and Townsend did good of- 
fensive work, Captain Tayloe thrilling the white and 
blue supporters by receiving the ball on Carolina's 
five-yard line and carrying it through the entire Wake 
Forest team for a 92 yard gain.

In the opinion of many, no defeat sustained by the 
varsity since 1!»12 has been more disappointing to 
Carolina than that administered by Georgetown at 
Washington. The score 38 to does not begin to tell 
I lie story of how badly the team failed to meet the 
expectations of the student body. All the first string 
men except Parker were in the game and seemingly 
Carolina had the opportunity to put up a good tight. 
After the first quarter, in which neither side had a 
decided advantage, Carolina stopped fighting, with 
the result that Gilroy and his team mates ran away 
with the score, going through the entire team from 
the kick off fur a touchdown. Except in the one 
particular of punting, Carolina was completely out- 
played and only onee made first down. Gilroy, 
Georgetown's left halfback, was the brilliant star of 
the game, making four of the six touchdowns cred- 
ited to his team. 


Playing before an unusually large crowd for a 
North Carolina town, Carolina and V. M. I. broke 
even at Greensboro in the varsity's fourth game Oc- 
tober 23rd. The score was 3-3. Carolina began the 
game with only four first string men, the other mem- 
bers of the varsity being kept out of the lineup 
through injuries and sickness. Lack of team work 
characterized Carolina's entire play and accounted 
for her inability to place the ball across the cadets' 
goal line after getting in striking distance. Out of a 
total of sixteen fumbles made in the game, only two 
were recovered by Carolina. Individual work by 
Tandy and Home in tackling behind the line and by 
Long and Love in executing passes was of the spec- 
tacular sort. . 


Forward passes brilliantly executed played a big 
part in Carolina's second defeat of the year at At- 
lanta on October 30th by Georgia Tech. The Yel- 
low . lackcts scored twice in the first quarter. Fielder 
skirting Carolina's end for forty yards and a touch- 
down, and Spence going over after a series of for- 
ward passes. Carolina braced in the second quarter 
and after working the ball to the Georgians' 35-yard 
line, Tandy dropped a field goal. Neither team 

scored in the third quarter. In the final period the 
Yellow Jackets worked the ball into Carolina's terri- 
tory and Speuce dropped a goal from the 40-yard 
line. Tech's last touchdown was hammered out in 
straight football.

After a week of hard, soul-searching practice, and 
showing more drive than she has exhibited in any 
game during the season, Carolina won a 9 to 7 victory 
over Clemson at Greenville, S. C, on Nov. 6th. The 
score tells only part of the story, as Carolina was on 
Clemson's 1-yard line when the first half ended and 
was only four yards from the South Carolinians' goal 
line when the game ended. In both cases it was first 
down. Tayloe, McDonald, Reid, and Parker plowed 
through the line repeatedly. Tandy was out of the 
game on account of injuries. 


The Treasurer of the Athletic Association of the 
University makes the following announcement con- 
cerning the sale of tickets for the Carolina-Virginia 
game on Thanksgiving Day. 

Until November 20th, tickets may be secured from 
the Treasurer of the Athletic Association, Chapel 
Hill, at $1.50 for reserved seats in the grand stand 
or $1.00 for general admission. It is urged that 
Carolina men secure tickets in this way in order to 
escape paying scalpers high prices at Richmond. 

Special trains over the Southern will be run from 
Chapel Hill, Gibsonville, and Charlotte. Trains 
on other lines have not yet been announced. Pull- 
man reservations on the train from Chapel Hill can 
lie secured from the Treasurer of the Athletic Asso- 


Track aspirants at the Hill will have an opportun- 
ity on November 20th to display their ability in a 
cross country run now being arranged by Manager 
Hackler. The preliminary tryout for Carolina will 



be held November 5th with Upchurch, Gant, Har- 
rison, Rand, and Ranson as prospective contestants. 
An invitation to participate has been mailed to all 
the colleges in the State and Trinity, Wake Forest, 
and A. and XI. have accepted. This will be the first 
meet of this sort held in three years. 


With the coming of Coach Doak on November 1, 
active practice for the 1915-16 basket ball season be- 
gan. While a word as to prospects is out of place at 
this time, it is to be noted that most of last year's 
squad has returned and an unusual amount of new 
material has reported for practice. Manager Home- 
wood is arranging a full schedule and the team will 
probably play the first game about December 15th. 


After a lapse of one year the class in journalism 
in the University again has resumed work under 
the direction of instructor R. II. Thornton of the 
department of English. The class at present numbers 
twenty members comprising, in the main, the mem- 
bers of the various editorial boards of the student 
publications and the correspondents for the State 

For the use of the class special quarters have been 
provided in the large northeast corner room on the 
second floor of the library and a number of the lead- 
ing dailies of the State and nation have been secured 
for class use. A collection of typical news stories, 
special feature articles, and other types of journalis- 
tic work is being assembled and filed in cabinets for 
reference and a special bulletin board has been se- 
cured for the display of news notes and sources of in- 
formation concerning them. The University news 
service, with R. C. Vaughan, '16, as manager, is also 
conducted in the same quarters. 


The "Witching Hour." by Augustus Thomas, is 
the play that has been decided on for presentation 
by the Dramatic flub for this season. This play is 
one of the most enjoyable as well as one of the most 
difficult for presentation of the works of American 
authors. It is pleasing by reason of the fact that it 
is a happy mixture of the best of romance witb one 
of the most subtile of psychological principles — men- 
tal telepathy. That it is thoroughly enjoyable, is 
proved conclusively by its long and successful run 
in New York in 1907, and by the fact that it lias 

been chosen by the Dramatic Club of the University 
of Kansas, one of the best known amateur dramatic 
organizations in this country, to be presented by them 
for the coming season. 

In deciding on this play, the coaches of the Caro- 
lina ('lub gave expression to their firm belief in the 
club's ability to do and do well this most difficult 
piece of work. The club has started into this work 
with a great deal of enthusiasm and the competition 
for the parts in the cast is hot. With seven of last 
year's cast and ten or a dozen new men who are 
showing ability, the rehearsals are going on every 
day and things should be in readiness for the first 
performance on the "II ill" on the night of Decem- 
ber 3rd, during the Thanksgiving dances. 

The manager is working on the eastern trip which 
will follow the performance here. So far, the plans 
for the trip are not matured, but among the settled 
dates is one in Durham on December 4th and one at 
St. Mary's in Raleigh on December lith. 


The University School of Pharmacy opens with 
an enrollment of 58, there being 42 in the first year 
class, 10 in the second, and 2 in the third. This is 
the largest enrollment for an opening which the de- 
partment lias had. 

Within the past few years the department has 
taken on new activities, as the Carolina J our mil of 
Pharmacy, which is published by the William Simp- 
son Pharmaceutical Society, and a public service 
or employment bureau which is conducted by Pro- 
fessor J. G. Beard. 


Statistics received from the office of the Registrar 
indicate a decided growth in the Graduate School. 
At present a total of 83 have registered for the 
Summer and regular sessions, the number being ten 
more than the record number of 1914-15 when the 
total reached 73. Of the 5:! members of the school 
registered during the Summer session, 48 were work- 
ing for the M. A. degree. At present 6 are working 
for the Ph. I). The list is: C. B. Carter, V. A. 
Coulter, W. C. George, J. B. Huff. W. XV. Rankin, 
and II. R. Totten. 

The University medical school has opened with an 
enrollment of 73, there being 39 men in the second 
year class and 34 in the first year class. Of the 
men in the first year class, ten are college graduates 
and twenty-six have had as much as two years of 
college work. 




That the farmers of North Carolina are constant 
patrons of the University is again evidenced hy the

True to its former traditions as the guardian of 
campus government, the Student Council of 1915-16 
is using' every available means to impress upon the 
mind of every member of the student body that he 
is an organic part of student government. The men 
to whom this responsibility .has fallen this year are: 
F. F. Bradshaw, president of the senior class, presi- 
dent; J. A. Capps, president of the junior class, 
secretary; Victor Bryant, president of the sophomore 
class; James Hawfield, president of the second year 
medical class ; Jesse Turlington, president of the 
second year pharmacy class ; A. H. Wolfe, representa- 
tive from the law school ; L. H. Edwards, representa- 
tive from the student body ; Oscar Teach, elected by 
the Council. 


Statistics for the fall term concerning the church 
affiliations of the student body show that the Metho- 
dist church is more largely represented at the Uni- 
versity than any other. Denominations represented 
by moi*e than ten affiliates follow: Methodists 305, 
Baptist 256, Presbyterian 166, Episcopal 115, Chris-

The Y. M. C. A., through Secretary Bonshall, is 
planning what is known as deputation work for the 
Association this year. This work is to be undertaken 
by deputation teams of four or five men each who 
are representative of the best type of student life and 
Christian character. These teams are to visit pre- 
paratory schools and small towns and will hold series 
of meetings for the pupils and young men. Prepara- 
tions for the campaign will be arranged by the local 
school. The program of the meeting is to be so ar- 
ranged as to bring the members of the team in close 
touch with those whom they are visiting, first through 
a social gathering, and later through athletic contests 
or demonstrations. At night a union meeting will 
be held at which the team will make short talks on 
different phases of student and Christian life. The 
last meeting of the series will be devoted to the defin- 
ite consideration of the claims of the Christian life 
upon the pupils of the school and young men in at- 


Building upon the sound foundation already laid 
in its night schools, the Y. M. C. A., at the begin- 
ning of November, organized six moonlight schools 
at Smith's Level, Fowler's School House, Calvander, 
Clark's Chapel, Orange, and Mt. Carmel. The num- 
ber of University students volunteering to teach num- 
bered over one hundred, and fifty-four were assigned 
to work. At the first meeting the attendance ranged 
from 40 to 75 at each center and keen enthusiasm 
was evinced by all in attendance. The work will be 
carried on throughout November and a second month 
in the spring will also be provided for. 




President Graham returned to the University on 
Monday, October 25th, from Easton, Pa., where he

year class, 20 in the second year class, and 16 are 
special students. 


According to plans recently matured Carolina is to 
meet George Washington in debate at some date in 
December, the query being, Resolved, that the United 
States Government should own and operate all tele- 

graph lines in the United States, constitutionality 
conceded. Carolina has the negative. The debate 
will be held here and is creating considerable interest 
as it affords Carolina the opportunity of winning the 
series in which both Universities have won one de- 
bate each.

During recent years, plans have been maturing for 
the establishment of several series of lectureships, 
dealing in a large way with the larger interests of 
education, philosophy, culture, and life. First in 
order of establishment was the John Calvin McNair 
Lectures, dealing broadly with science, philosophy, 
.and religion. This year, the ninth successive year, 
the lectures will be delivered by Dr. F. T. E. Wood- 
bridge, dean of the graduate school and professor of 
philosophy at Columbia University. The subject is 
yet to be announced; the lectures will lie delivered 
during the latter part of February. 

Last year, a new series of unendowed lectures, on 
the general subject of American citizenship, was in- 
augurated by ex-President William Howard Taft, of 
the Yale University law school. This lectureship 
has since been generously endowed by the families of 
Sol and Henry Weil, of Goldsboro, N. C, for many 
years devoted friends and benefactors of the Univer- 
sity, and themselves inspiring exemplars of the best 
qualities of American citizenship. This series, en- 
titled "The Weil Lectures on American Citizenship," 
will be delivered on March 29, 30, and 31, by Mr. 
George Brinton McClellan, ex-Mayor of New York 
City, and professor of economic history at Princeton 

University. The subject of the lectures will be an- 
nounced later. 

This year, in pursuance of the plan to establish a 
number of permanent lectureships of cultural and 
humanistic character, the University has established 
a new series of unendowed lectures, in the field of art 
and literature. This new series, to be known for the 
present as the "Lectures on Art and Literature," will 
be delivered on April 19, 20, and 21, by Mr. Bliss 
Perry, professor of English literature in Harvard 
University. The subject of the lectures will be an- 
nounced later. 


Last year the system of exchange lectures between 
South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Virginia, and this insti- 
tution was inaugurated under the most favorable 
auspices. Each institution has expressed a keen sense 
of gratification in the establishment of the system of 
exchange lectures ; and has testified to its initial suc- 
cess in bringing the institutions into closer and more 
intimate relationship. The promotion of scholarship, 
the stimulation of concern for research, the effective 
demonstration of established, and exposition of novel 
theories — these bid fair to exhibit themselves more 
prominently with the increase in the number of sub- 
jects and departments represented. 

For the present year of 1915-16, the following ar- 
rangements have been made: Professor Patterson 
Wardlaw, head of the school of pedagogy of the Uni- 
versity of South Carolina, will lecture at Chapel 
Hill; Professor Henry Van Peters Wilson, head of 
the department of zoology of the University of North 
Carolina, will lecture at Charlottesville; Dr. diaries 
W. Kent, professor of English literature of the Uni- 
versity of Virginia, will lecture at Nashville ; and 
Professor L. C. Glenn, head of the department of 
geology of Vanderbilt University, will lecture at Co- 
lumbia. The dates of these lectures will be announced 


A series of faculty lectures on the purpose and op- 
portunity of college study has been announced for 
the fall term as follows: November 19, "Choice of 
Studies," by Dr. Greenlaw; December 3, "The Col- 
lege and Scholarship," by Dr. Venable; December 
10, "What the College Ought to Mean to the Man," 
by Dr. L. A. Williams; December 17, "The Purpose 
of the College of Liberal Arts," by President Gra- 
ham. The president of the senior class will preside 
at these lectures. 




The presidential address before the American 
Chemical Society was delivered by Dr. Charles H. 
Herty at the general meeting of the society held in 
Seattle early in September. The address on "Co- 
operation in Matters Chemical." is published in full 
in the October number of the Society's Journal and 
in the Charlotte Observer of October 10. An appeal 
is made for closer co-operation between chemists en- 
gaged in research in pure chemistry and those in ap- 
plied chemistry. Dr. Herty said: "I think of research 
in chemistry as a field whose highest fruition calls for 
two kinds of service. On the one hand the constant 
enrichment of the soil, 'pure chemistry ;' and on the 
other the seeding, tending and harvesting, 'applied 
chemistry;' each absolutely essential, and incapable 
of its highest fulfillment without the other, using the 
same methods, demanding identical care, skill, ac- 
curacy and thoroughness, and working toward the 
same end — the uplift of humanity. If this be not 
the mutual goal, then pure chemistry becomes a sel- 
fish toy and applied chemistry a mere tool for greed. 
In both lines of service the hearty co-operation of all 
chemists is needed." Speaking to manufacturers re- 
garding their co-operation with chemists. Dr. Herty 
said: "You can aid in many ways; by furnishing 
material prepared under factory condtions for use in 
research in university laboratories, by contributing 
equipment which will widen the possibilities of such 
work, by enlarging department libraries which con- 
stitute the prime prerequisite of all research labora- 
tories, and by endowing fellowships which will enable 
many a promising young man. otherwise unable, to 
continue his work through the unremunerative period 
of higher training which is requisite if he is to realize 
his highest possibilities." 


Wi i.sox, W. S. — Amendments to the Revisal of 1905 
Enacted by the General Assembly of North 
Carolina 1907-1915. Pp. 169, Edwards and 
Broughton, 1 9 1 5. 
For years North Carolina lias needed a legisla- 
tive reference library and an expert legislative refer- 
ence librarian in order to make available compara- 
tive material for the use of North Carolina legisla- 
tors. The State has also needed, and to an equal 
degree, an officer who could regularly devote careful 
consideration to the codification of the public laws 
of the State and propose pertinent suggestions as to 
the form and manner in which general laws of State- 
wide interest should he passed. 

Through the establishment of the legislative ref- 

erence department of the North Carolina Historical 
Commission in 1915, and the appointment of W. S. 
Wilson, '!»'.>, as legislative reference librarian, the 
meeting of these special wants has been well pro- 
vided for. "Amendments to the Revisal of 1905" 
recently from the press as publication number one 
of the legislative reference department, clearly es- 
tablishes this fact. 

As indicated by the title, the publication contains 
all amendments to the Revisal of 1905 to date. It 
also contains references to all public laws and many 
public-local laws enacted since 1905. Furthermore, 
and this is of great importance, it contains nine rec- 
ommendations for the guidance of legislators in the 
future. If they are carried out, the many difficulties 
now incident to the finding of what the State law is 
on any subject will be cleared away. The present 
publication goes far towards removing these difficul- 
ties and has met with the hearty commendation of 
the North Carolina legal profession. 

Weeks, Stepiiex B. — History of Public School Ed- 
ucation in Alabama. Pp. 209. Government 
Printing Office, 1915. 

One of the many splendid activities of the United 
States Bureau of Education extending over a period 
of nearly forty years lias been the publication of a 
series of monographs on educational history of the 
various states of the Union. In recent years, these 
monographs have related especially to public educa- 
tion, and the official historian of the Bureau has been 
Dr. Stephen I!. Weeks, 'sii. 

The latest study in the series coming from Dr. 
Weeks' hands is the History of Public School Edu- 
cation in Alabama, being Bulletin No. 12 for the 
year 1915. It comprises 209 pages and goes thor- 
oughly into the developments of Alabama's public 
educational system from the beginning of the state 
about 1800 down to the present. Excerpts from im- 
portant state and official papers, statistics covering 
a wide variety of educational subjects, a complete 
bibliography of primary and secondary sources of in- 
formation, together with an exhaustive index add to 
the worth of the publication and make it an exceed- 
ingly useful handbook in this important field.

culture in Alaska. Pp. 202, plates, maps, illus- 
trations. Washington, Government Printing 
Office. 191:,. 
"Agriculture. in Alaska," a publication which calls 
to mind the fact that Carolina has sent more men 
into the United States Soil Survey than any other 
institution in America, has just been issued from 

• ■I' 


the Bureau of Soils by Hugh H. Bennett, '03, and 
Thomas D. Rice, '00, agricultural experts who were 
sent in 1914 to Alaska to investigate the possibilities 
of agriculture in certain sections of the territory un- 
der consideration as possible routes for a projected 
Alaskan railroad authorized by Congress. 

The publication is in the nature of a report of the 
investigation and is supplemented with numerous 
illustrations, maps, and plates. The conclusions 
reached by Messrs. Bennett and Rice are that the 
soil is capable of yielding good returns, but that the 
adventurer and get-rich-quick settler need not hope 
to amass fortunes quickly. Comparisons are drawn 
with the soils of other sections of America and of 
foreign countries, and tallies showing results of min- 
ora logical examinations of samples are appended. 
These tables are the work of W. H. Fry, '10, who is 
also an alumnus of the University and a member of 
the staff of the Bureau. 


News comes from New York that Ralph Id. 
Graves, '97, and for two years librarian of the Uni- 
versity, has been chosen city editor of the New York 
Times. The New York Evening Post of October 
25th, carried the following notice concerning his ap- 
pointment : 

"Ralph H. Graves, assistant to the managing edi- 
tor of the New York Times, became city editor of 
that newspaper today in succession of the late Arthur 

"Mr. Graves was born at Chapel Hill, North Car- 
olina, on July 11, 1S7S, and was educated at the 
University of North Carolina, where he took the de- 
gree of bachelor of arts in 1897, and the master's de- 
gree the following year. Coming to New York, he 
joined the staff of the Times in June, 1899, serving 
until December, 1904, when he came to the Evening 
Post as a reporter. 

"The manner in which Mr. Graves covered the 
Hughes insurance investigation made a reputation for 
him among newspaper men, and he returned to the 
'rimes in July, 1906, serving as assistant city editor 
until February, 1907. Then he accepted the position 
of assistant city editor of the Evening Post, later be- 
coming city editor, a post he held for a short time 
before he returned to the Times, in June, 1912. As 
city editor of the Evening Post, Mr. Graves handled 
the Titantic disaster story in a way that commanded 
the admiration of his newspaper associates in this 
and other offices." 


Announcement has been made by the Colorado 
School of Mines that James Cole Roberts, 'S4, for 
the past five years a member of the staff of the United 
States Bureau of Mines, has accepted the Joseph A. 
Holmes professorship of safety and efficiency engi- 
neering in the Colorado School of Mines, at Golden, 
Colorado, and will enter upon his duties next month. 
This professorship, which is the only one of its kind 
in the country, has recently been established by the 
college as a memorial to the late Dr. Holmes. As a 
member of the staff of the Bureau of Mines. Pro- 
fessor Roberts was in charge of some of the most im- 
portant mine rescue and mine investigation work in 
the west. More than fifteen years ago he was pro- 
fessor of metallurgy in the institution to which he 
now returns. 


Professor Collier Cobb gave on November 4, 5, and 
6 the first group in a series of lectures at Fassifern 
on the general theme of Nature and Man. The sub- 
jects of the three lectures were: Man as Related to 
his Surroundings, Pre-Columbian Man in America, 
and Man in America Since Columbus. The second 
group, to be given in the spring term, relates more 
especially to man in the Old World, and the subjects 
will be Cradles of Civilization, The Influence of 
Geography on History in Europe, and Man's Mastery 
of Nature. Following their delivery the Fassifern 
lectures will appear in book form. 


W. T. Joyner, for three years a student in the Har- 
vard Law School, has recently been elected a mem- 
ber of the editorial board of the Harvard Law Re- 
view, a publication of which Kenneth Royall. '14, is 
also an editor. Mr. Joyner has also been chosen from 
the senior law class to act as an adviser to members 
of the freshman class in the preparation of their 
briefs and is a holder of a faculty scholarship in the 


The October number of the City College Quarterly 
of New York mentions the following incidents relat- 
ing to Carolina alumni at work as members of the 
teaching staff of that institution. A paper by Dr. 
Charles Baskerville "On the Rate of Evaporation of 
Ether from Oils and its Applications in Oil-Ether 
Colonic Anesthesia," appeared in August in the 



Proceedings of the American Pltilosophical Society. 
Dr. Holland Thompson, contributor to many period- 
icals and works of reference and editor-in-chief of 
The Book of Knowledge, in twenty-four volumes, 
has been promoted from the position of assistant pro- 
fessor to associate professor in the department of 
history. Dr. Frank McLean has been appointed 
tutor in hygiene. 


On October 29th the third annual Rally Day was 
held on the campus, more than five hundred of the 
people from the county surrounding the University 
together with all University and Chapel Hill people, 
being in attendance. Illustrated lectures in the 
Chapel and at the Pickwick, an automobile parade 
from Chapel Hill to Carrboro, and exhibits in 
Memorial Hall of agricultural products, quilt work, 
fancy work, canned goods and cooking, formed 
an exceedingly interesting program during the morn- 
ing. At noon county and town gathered on the green 
back of the Y. M. C. A. for an old-fashioned picnic 
dinner. Later in the afternoon there was competitive 
singing in Memorial Hall by five Sunday schools of 
the county. The last number on the program was a 
series of potato races and other athletic events on the 
class football field. 


More than one hundred schools have already en- 
rolled in the High School Debating Union, and the 
general prospects are that the spring debates of 1916 
will be highly successful. The question to be dis- 
cussed this year is that of the enlargement of the 
Navy. A bulletin containing arguments and refer- 
ences on both sides of the query is now being pre- 
pared and copies (if it will be sent to all the contesting 
schools during this month. 

Eugene Barnett, former secretary of the local Y. 
M. C. A., and for five years Carolina's representative 
in Y. M. C. A. work in Hangchow, China, addressed 
a large number of students and former friends on 
Sunday night, October 31, in Gerrard Hall. His 
theme was the "Changing China." and he presented 
in a most interesting manner the great opportunity 
America has today to Christianize the rapidly awak- 
ing nation. 

Mr. .T G. Beard, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy, 
was re-elected Secretary of the North Carolina Phar- 
maceutical Association at its meeting in Durham, 
June 16 th.

sociation was held at Asheville in the office of the Clerk of

How did he do it?" J. S. Cansler had for his subject, "The 
True University Man." He said that the true University man 
was a man well-rounded in all branches of activity. 

Prof. Henry Horace Williams, who was present from the 
University faculty as a guest of honor, made the principal 
speech of the occasion. He was introduced by Dr. O. B. 
Ross, who won the Worth prize in 190S. 

Prof. Williams declared his conviction that there must be 
in the South some great educational institution, some institu- 
tion which would do for the South what Harvard has done 
for New England. He quoted statistics and gave illustrations 
to prove that the South was just now on the eve of a tre- 
mendous industrial development. He said that to direct this 
development along the right pathway the South must have a 
great school. The location for this school, he declared, must 
be Chapel Hill. 

In referring to conditions at the University he said "I bring 
you glad tidings from the Hill. Things are well there." In 
referring to President Graham, he said, "I measure my words 
when I say it, you cannot match that leader in the South." His 
address was enthusiastically received.

Oldham, '94; Vice-President, W. T. Shore, '05; Secretary and

"The Cabarrus County Alumni Association held its annual 
meeting October 12th. The attendance was somewhat limited,

address. We were in a reminiscent frame of mind and heart, 
and began with things of the past pertaining to our Alma

ment of the University in the twenty years of his connection 
with it as a member of the faculty. He outlined the present

members present who responded with interesting talks : J.

pride in the fact that this year their county furnishes 52 
students to the University. This is the largest attendance 
from any county in the State.

J. P. Bunn, and J. B. Ramsey had prepared a characteristic 
barbecue dinner. F. E. Winslow presided over the gathering 
as president of the association. 

After dinner the alumni adjourned to the reception Hall 
of the Club and gathered around a big log fire for an informal 
discussion of University and Alumni affairs. Prof. W. S. 
Bernard, of the University faculty, was present as a guest 
of honor. He described conditions at the University as 
affected by the unusual influx of students during the past 
two years. He made real to the alumni the serious difficulty 
under which the administration is laboring in finding places 
to eat and sleep for 1124 students. He referred to the very 
harmonious co-operation between faculty and students, stating 
that the whole community was working together with the one 
purpose of realizing President Graham's ambition of making 
the campus commensurate with the boundaries of the State. 

At the conclusion of Prof. Bernard's address the members 
of the association indulged in an informal discussion of the 
needs of the University. It was the conviction of all present

more provision for the University.

would furnish more substantial provision.

the best in the United States. O. A. Hamilton, well known as

of the occasion. He told of the work and ambitions of the 
University and spoke of the need for constant alumni co-oper- 
ation, quoting in this particular from President Graham's 
letter to the alumni and from R. D. W. Connor's address on 
Alumni Day at the last commencement. "The University of 
North Carolina," Dr. Henderson declared, "I venture to af- 
firm emerges today into full national recognition as that 
Southern institution which, beyond challenge, has best em- 
bodied the idea of the State University." His address was 
received with enthusiasm and the alumni determined to bend

The Class of 1911 is making plans for its big five-year re- 
union which is to be held at Commencement of 1916. This 
reunion promises to be of the solidly successful, everybody 
present kind. The Review is glad to publish herewith a letter 
from Edgar W. Turlington, of Chapel Hill, in reference to it. 
Fellow-Members of Nineteen-Eleven : 

"Next Commencement is the time for our five-year re- 
union. A Committee appointed by President Dees met on 
the Hill this summer and unanimously resolved that our 
class must have a real, genuine, every-member-present re- 
union. Plans are now on foot for a reunion that will be 
in every way worthy of the class, which means that it will 
be the biggest and best in the whole history of the Univer- 

"The trouble with most Alumni Days has been that no 
class had the courage or initiative to step right out and tell 
all the others what to do and how to do it. Nineteen-nine 
showed commendable initiative in this matter and got the 
hearty thanks of all the other classes that were holding re- 
unions. Some class must take the lead, and there is no class 
in a better position to do this than the one which is holding 
its five-year reunion. Our class should simply take charg"e 
of the whole proceedings of Alumni Day next Commencement 
and let everybody know that the former lords of the campus 
are restored for a time to their dominion. And, besides tell- 
ing others what to do and lording it generally over the cam- 



pus, we should have definite plans for our own particular 
activities throughout the Commencement season. 

"In this issue of the Review, we cannot give a detailed 
exposition of the plans of the Committee. Some idea, how- 
ever, of the sort of thing to be expected may be got from the 
statement that Dick Stockton is in general charge of the 
program of the reunion, while Critz George is preparing the 
Carr Building for our accommodation by night and Kenneth 
Tanner is pitching a tent for our delectation by day, and 
while John Tillett is providing stunts and other refreshments 
and Cy Thompson is acting as Baseball Manager. More will 
be said in later issues of the Review of all the plans here 
suggested as well as of any other plans which may be adopted 
by the Committee. Suggestions from members of the class 
will be welcomed if sent to R. G. Stockton, Winston-Salem, 
N. C. 

"A very important matter just at this time is the matter 
of the Class Bulletin to be issued in December. The Bulletin 
will attempt to give short biographical notes of all members 
of the class, no matter how short a time they may have spent 
at the University. For this reason all members 'to whom these 
presents may come' are urged to send information not only 
in regard to their own affairs but also in regard to the affairs 
of others (immunity guaranteed by the Committee against 
libel suits). The information should cover all matters of 
interest to the class, such as occupation, official positions, de- 
grees, engagements, marriages, divorces, births, etc., and 
should be sent at the earliest possible time to I. C. Moser, 
Burlington, N. C. 

"And remember : the most important event in the year 1916 
is the five-year reunion of the class of 1911."
