The call in the November Review for expressions 
from the alumni in regard to the establishment of an 

alumni loyalty fund through vohra- 
THE ALUMNI i u • J u 

LOYALTY FUND tar ^ y ear v subscriptions to be 

held separately from all other Uni- 
versity funds and administered by a group of alumni 
trustees, appointed by the President, has met with 
instant and enthusiastic approval and promise of 
support. In the letters received, extracts from which 
are printed elsewhere in this issue, the main point 
stressed is that such' a fund would give to the alumnus 
of moderate means the opportunity, long desired, of 
giving to the institution that trained him tangible evi- 
dence of his loyalty and of his desire to make a con- 
tribution, however small, to its increasing usefulness 
and greatness. 

It is fully recognized that the University is a State 
institution, of and for the State, and that the support 
of the State, and that alone, can make it adequate 
to the rapidly growing demands of the State. The 
alumni fund proposed would always be auxiliary 
to the State support and proportionately small ; but 
there are many things that might be added to the 
beauty and usefulness of the institution that never 
will be added from the State funds, and there are 
now thousands of loyal sons of the University, and 
there will be thousands more in the years to come, 
who would delight to contribute to its upbuilding, 
and who will be better University men for contribut- 
ing. These men do not contribute because they have 
not a sufficient sum to contribute in the large way 
necessary to make an individual contribution count. 
They cannot give fifty thousand dollars, nor five 
thousand dollars ; but they would eagerly grasp the 
opportunity to give five dollars, or fifty dollars, or a 
hundred dollars a year. 

There is no way of telling what such a plan would 
yield. Nor is it necessary to its success to assume that 
it will immediately yield a large yearly amount. 
With over six thousand living alumni possessed by a 
spirit of loyal helpfulness, of which the University 
is at all times vividly conscious, there is no reason 
to doubt that it will yield eventually a considerable 
sum. The main point, however, is to provide an open 
and productive avenue through which men who want 
to help can help. 

Classes with efficient class organizations can con- 
tinue, as they do at present, to contribute directly to 
their class funds; and the classes can continue, as in 
the past, to vote their gifts to such purposes as they 
choose; but they may if they choose vote to add their 
class fund to the alumni fund. And individuals who 
have no efficient class organization can subscribe di- 
rectly to this alumni fund with the assurance that 
their subscriptions will be well taken care of, and 
used for purposes of large service whether the amount 
is one dollar or a thousand dollars. 


Another use that the establishment of this fund 
would have is in the matter of bequests. One scarce- 


ly picks up a paper in which there 
is not a record of some bequest to one 
of the eastern universities of from twenty-five thous- 
and to a million dollars. The University will have 
to wait a long time before it receives many such be- 
quests from its alumni — and for the best of reasons. 
It is not that they are not as loyal and as libera] *s 
those of Yale, Harvard or Columbia; it is because 
they have not the money to bequeath. But there are 
a thousand alumni who could bequeath the Univer- 
sity sums varying from one hundred to five thousand 
dollars, and their estates not suffer. Lacking the 
great sum, however, that in their imagination they 
would leave to the University to beautify the campus, 
foster extension work, endow a professorship, build 
•i college chapel, or do any of the hundred other help- 
ful things for which fairly large sums are required, 
they feel that the amount they could give toward such 
purposes too small to serve. The alumni fund would 
be a reservoir for such gifts. A hundred gifts of a 
thousand dollars would equal a single gift of a hun- 
dred thousand; five hundred gifts of five hundred 
dollars would be an endowment of a quarter of a 

Certainly that degree of success is not unthinkable. 
More than that, its sucecss seems assured, in that it 
represents in the field of giving not merely the easiest 
way, but it represents in the field of giving the true 
democracy of spirit that is the dominant note in the 
upbuilding of the institution. 

The gift of $1000 made by the class of 1005 is a 
gift of the sort indicated. It represents the first con- 



tribution to the fund, which, from all present indi- 
cations, will begin active operation in January, 1916.

On December 16, 1912, after Carolina had suffered 
a defeat of 66 to at the hands of Virginia, a confer- 
ence of alumni and members of 
WHAT NEXT ., , ,, , ,. ., 

IN ATHLETICS? faculty was held on tne campus 

with a view of putting athletics, 
especially football, on a new and better basis. The 
result of the conference was the formulation of a plan 
providing for three things: the faculty was to ad- 
minister the eligibility rules; the faculty and local 
athletic association were to arrange schedules and 
carry out the detail of games as scheduled ; and the 
alumni were to provide the coaches and develop a 
system of alumni coaching. 

Assuming its responsibility, the alumni committee 
signed a three-year contract with Coach Trenchard, 
called on all those interested in the proposed plan 
to come to its financial support, and for three years 
has had under its management all the larger matters 
relating to the coaching staff and its methods. 

Now that the three-year trial has been carried out, 
The Review, in no spirit of criticism, but solely for 
the information of the alumni as a body, raises the 
question: "What shall be the course in athletics in 
the future ?" 

□ □□ 

A glance backward over the three-year season dur- 
ing which the committee has been in control, will 
show increased alumni interest in the 
BACKWARD tcam ano " the development of a varsity 
squad which in three years has won 
from Georgia and Vanderbilt and has played to a 
14 to score the strongest team ever put out by 
the Orange and Blue. At the same time it will show 
for the coaching staff an expense account increased to 
the breaking point and the establishment of a coach- 
ing system which, instead of gradually developing 
into an alumni system, with former wearers of the 
White and Blue assuming the direction of all forms 
of athletics, has become more professional in its com- 
position than it was before the alumni committee as- 
sumed responsibility. 

Furthermore, at the very time when it was hoped 
that an effective system would have been established 
which would be carried forward largely by its own 
momentum, it will show that the present system, de- 
veloped with so great labor and at so much expense, 
has apparently reached its maximum efficiency and 
that the foundation thus laid is lacking in those 
elements of self-reliant aggressiveness and efficient 

generalship which predicate real success, and, con- 
sequently, that the problem will have to be taken up 

□ □□ 

The Review's field (to borrow a term from the 
devotees of research), so far as it understands its 
what T<5 capacities and limitations, is not 

THE SOLUTION? a^etics. Nevertheless, it is keen- 
ly interested in the situation, and 
in its desire to be of assistance in bettering conditions 
it suggests the way out which seems best to it. Ap- 
parently, Carolina cannot dispense at one stroke with 
professional assistance as the list of alumni to draw 
upon for all the aid which she requires is too meager. 
The way out, as The Review sees it, is through a 
resident director of athletics who shall be given a 
regular position in the University and with whom 
members of former teams and professional trainers, 
if need be, may work in hearty co-operation. It was 
solely upon the condition that a plan like this should 
be put into operation that football was reinstated at 
Columbia this fall ; it was by means of the return of 
former Yale players (Tom Shevlin and others) that 
the Tale eleven rose from defeat and triumphed over 
Princeton in November; and it is to a system such 
as is herein proposed that Virginia attributes the 
outcome of her 1915 season, the most successful in 
her splendid athletic history. 

The whole matter is in need of the most serious 
thought of the alumni, and all facts and opinons 
which bear on the present situation or which might 
contribute to its material improvement should be 
brought at once into the open. 


Some six hundred of the students now enrolled 
at the University had the opportunity of seeing but 
two 'Varsity games during the sea- 
son which closed on Thanksgiving 
Day — those with Citadel and Wake 
Forest on October 2 and 9. At the former game 
possibly a dozen alumni who live away from the 
Hill were present. At the second the number may 
have reached fifty and the total number of visitors 
three hundred. The more important games were 
staged elsewhere, notably in Greensboro, Winston, 
Atlanta, and Richmond. Furthermore a two dollar 
and a half athletic fee was charged every member 
of the student body who did not sign a written state- 
ment that he was financially unable to meet the fee. 
In view of the readjustment of the athletic situa- 
tion now under consideration, we cite these facts to- 
gether with the following extracts from the leading 




editorial entitled "The Big Home Game" appearing 
in the University of Virginia Alumni News of 
November 3. We believe, first of all, that inasmuch 
as the student body pnts something like $2500 into 
football, that it should have the privilege of seeing 
some other brand of sport than that furnished by 
Citadel and class teams. But waiving this right 
altogether, we believe that by playing some of the 
real games on our own athletic field, including at all 
cost a worthy game on University Day, and by 
welding student body, alumni, and team into a single 
unit under the high pressure of campus spirit and 
institutional loyalty incident to a great game with 
a genuine rival, we would win something infinitely 
more valuable to the University than the dubious gate 
receipts gathered in at an athletic park in no way 
hallowed with University traditions. 

But read the Virginia pronouncement. It is the 
outgrowth of experience, not belief. 


Until the Stadium was completed two years ago, 
the more important football contests had to be played 
HOW OTHERS away from the University. North 
THINK Carolina, Georgetown and the -Navy, 

then regarded as the "big games," 
were played on the home fields of the opponents, or 
on neutral ground. The University seldom had the 
opportunity to witness at home any of these epic con- 
tests, and seldom, in consequence, received the full 
benefit of the enthusiasm and loyalty engendered by 
them. This was a very real loss; and due to it, pro- 
bably, more than to anything else, football was never 
valued properly, nor appreciated as it should have 
been as a means of reviving and intensifying the Vir- 
ginia spirit. 

The completion of the Stadium, however, changed 
all this, and with the arrangement of games with 
Vanderbilt and Georgia, each of which is played on 
Lambeth Field every other year, the game at once 
took on an importance and significance hitherto de- 
nied it, and every year the part played by these con- 
tests in moulding the thought and feeling of the Uni- 
versity grows greater and greater. In the first place, 
in playing Vanderbilt and Georgia, we are playing 
natural rivals, contests with whom mean something. 
In playing Georgetown and the Navy, as we used to 
play them, we were not playing natural rivals, and 
the games meant very little to the University life. In 
the second place, we are playing teams worthy of our 
steel at all times and in the best way — and certainly 
some of our adversaries in the pasl have not entirely 
lived up to this greatly to be desired qualification. 

But most of all, in playing these teams here at 
home, we quicken and intensify, once every year, the 
Virginia spirit and the Virginia loyalty, and we do it 

in a manner that enables every student and every 
officer and man of the alumni as well to get the great- 
est possible benefit. A big "home game" calls back the 
alumni to Alma Mater as does nothing else, and it 
renews in them the spirit and loyalty of their youth. 
These contests serve thus to tighten, year by year, the 
bonds that unite the institution and her sons. In 
returning to the scenes of the happiest days of their 
younger years; in treading again the old arcades; in 
meeting old friends, not seen for decades, and in 
making new ones; in sharing in the warm, impulsive 
quickening of the emotions; in helping the boys — by 
their presence and their support — to win gracefully 
or to lose honorably, they help to intensify alumni 
loyalty to the old University, and at the same time 
they add something to their own lives which, albeit 
intangible, is very real and very fine. 


Of the various classes which have attempted to 
publish class books or annual bulletins, 1908 easily 
has been the winner of first honors. In 

THE 1908 

November it issued its eighth annual 
bulletin, not having skipped a year since 
its graduation. James A. Gray, Jr., has been the 
editor, and in bringing out the class book so prompt- 
ly and regularly, he has rendered his classmates and 
the University a genuine service. If all class secre- 
taries kept their classmates and the University in 
snch close tonch, undertakings like the publication of 
the general alumni catalogue and the establishment 
of the proposed alumni fund would be comparatively 
easy. The splendid example set by 1908 is worthy of 
general emulation. 


Are you a live alumnus ? If so, write us the live 
tilings you are thinking about. We don't want a 

thesis from you — just a chip from your 
DO IF ,. mental work-shop. A postal card will 

take the gist of it. Our big idea is that 
we want to hear from you. We will supply the frame 
for the thought if you will fill it in. Here is one as 
a starter: What would you do for the University if 

you had $ (you supply the amount) to 

give to the good of the cause ? 


Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, of the department of Eng- 
lish, delivered on November 19 the first lecture in 
the series of faculty lectures on the purpose and op- 
portunity of college study. His subject was the 
"Choice of Studies." He was followed on Decem- 
ber 3 by Dr. Venable, who spoke on "The College and 



Letters From Alumni Evidence Keen Interest in the Proposed Alumni Fund 

In response to the request made in the last issue of 
The Review for expressions of opinion concerning 
the proposed alumni fund modeled after the plan 
followed at Yale, letters from a number of alumni 
have been received. These without exception op- 
prove the general idea. Some doubt is expressed as 
to what the details of the plan should be, but none is 
entertained that the details can be worked out satis- 

A number of the letters themselves, or extracts 
from them, follow: 

I have just read the editorial suggestion in the 
November number relative to the establishment by 
the University of North Carolina alumni of a sys- 
tem of alumni contributions similar to that in oper- 
ation among the Yale alumni. I predict that the 
suggestion will receive widespread support among 
alumni. I know that is seems to fit perfectly into 
the need I have felt from time to time of finding 
some way of expressing my loyalty to the University. 
So many of us have the feeling of loyalty without 
the means of expressing it and while the mere contri- 
bution of a sum of money, small or large, will not by 
any means express all of the affection we feel, it will 
be helpful to every alumnus in that it will afford 
him a ready means of justifying the assertion : I have 
done something for the University. 

Those of us here in Washington have felt the im- 
pulse more than once to try to be helpful. Sometime 
ago we started a luncheon club, and other plans have 
been considered, all of them more or less futile. The 
plan you have presented I am sure will be recognized 
immediately as filling an actual need. — L. Ames 
Brown, '10. 

As an outline, I like the Yale plan of the alumni 
class giving. It provides against weak class organi- 
zations and inefficient secretaries and treasurers, as 
you say, and still leaves room to keep the individual 
alumni annually in touch with their Alma Mater in 
a practical way through their class. Whether the 
system happens to be worked by an established class 
secretary and treasurer or directly from an alumni 
secretary and treasurer at Chapel Hill, it seems, from 
the experience of a certain class, that the individual 
alumni are glad of the opportunity to give thus to 
their Alma Mater, provided this opportunity is pre- 
sented to them systematically, as for example, by 
notes signed upon graduation, as the graduate wishes 
and is able, and payable in yearly installments upon 
prompt presentment. The notes so signed and pre- 
sented have the evident advantage of being definite 

promises to pay a definite amount at a definite time 
and are generally cheerfully cancelled. All the other 
necessary outline seems to be provided by the Yale 
plan. Therefore, I am in favor of starting this good 
work now so as to put the movement through all the 
classes of the Alumni for definite results by this Com- 
mencement. — W. T. Shore, '05. 

I believe that the alumni will give more money as 
members of their respective classes than in any other 
way. I believe an appeal addressed to a class-mate 
by a class-mate for the purpose of raising a fund for 
a class to present as a class will come nearer being 
successful than an appeal from some central com- 
mittee. In other words, I myself would come nearer 
making an annual contribution to the treasurer of the 
class of 1909 so as to enable my class at its tenth 
year reunion to make a good showing than I would 
be to make a small annual donation to some central 
committee. The class of 1905 gave $1,000 as its 
tenth year reunion last year. This amount has be- 
come a kind of target for the other classes to shoot at. 
I shall be very much surprised if the class which has 
its tenth year reunion this coming commencement 
does not equal or better the record of the class of 

Of course, I understand that the proposed plan 
contemplates giving a man's class credit for whatever 
he sends in, but there is a serious question in my 
mind as to whether or not the pressure which a central 
committee could bring to bear would stimulate class 
loyalty.— C. W. Tillett, Jr., '09. 

For several years I have felt that some new way 
ought to be devised, better than the one now in prac- 
tice of the younger classes, of each class having a 
secretary and treasurer to collect what the members 
will give, and turn it over to the University at a five- 
or ten-year reunion. This plan has not worked well. 
It requires much correspondence and attention to 
keep up with the alumni and to collect the money. 
This duty is now on a treasurer of each class, who is 
busy and hasn't the time to give to it, and one good 
man at the University could attend to it all. 

In the second place the University does not receive 
the money every year as it is paid in for her benefit, 
but only in isolated payments, the money being in- 
vested by the class treasurers in the meantime, either 
loaned out or invested in some stock or bond. The 
investment that we alumni want is in educated, effi- 
cient manhood ; and this money should be put to that 
investment every year as it is collected. — I. C. 
Weight, '05. 

I for one, although still in debt for part of my 



education, am anxious to begin my membership in the 
proposed plan by giving five dollars. 

I believe that if the alumni will take on to the pro- 
posed plan, it will help make our University forge 
ahead as never before. — L. R. Johnston, '15. 

The suggestion in The Alumni Review for 
November, that a plan similar to the "Yale Alumni 
Fund Association" be inaugurated among the alumni 
of the University, strikes me as a wise and practicable 
scheme, and anything that I can do to help inaugu- 
rate and organize such a plan will be cheerfully done. 
Of course I have not had time yet to think out any of 
the details but I am heartily in favor of the general 
idea. Such a plan would not only bring needed finan- 
cial assistance, but what is of far more importance, 
would put the alumni in closer touch with the Uni- 
versity and give them the feeling that they were par- 
ticipating actively in its work. I hope, therefore, 
that you will be able to put the plan into successful 
operation. — R. D. W. Connor, '99. 

I am glad to give my hearty endorsement to the 
plan proposed in the last issue of the Review for ren- 
dering financial aid to the University. It seems to 
me both sensible and practical. I hope it can be put. 
through. — Harry Howell, '95. 

The suggestion to institute an alumni University 
Fund Association somewhat after the manner of the 
Yale Association seems an excellent one and I hope 
will be adopted. — J. R. Harris, '89. 

I heartily indorse the plan which has been formu- 
lated to provide for an Alumni Fund. — R. S. 
Hutchison, '02. 

Please continue to urge the plan for systematic 
giving to a University Alumni Fund. — R. W. Mc- 
Culloch, '06. 

The Alumni Review has a great many good 
things to its credit but nothing better thus far, I be- 
lieve, than the agitation for the establishment of an 
Alumni Fund. I feel sure that there are hundreds of 
alumni who have in times past wanted to help but re- 
frained from doing so because of the very hopeless- 
ness of their isolated situation. I sincerely hope that 
your agitation may result in some definite organiza- 
tion before the end of the current year. — F. E. 
Winslow, '09. 

1 think the plan outlined is excellent, and if pro- 
perly handled I believe everybody would take to it. 
— Kenneth Tanner. '11. 

I am strongly in sympathy with the plan for the 
University Alumni Fund. — J. T. Pritciiett, '14. 

I have always wanted to contribute toward the 
University but have never had adequate means, but 
this scheme gives me the opportunity I have been 
looking for and 1 think a great number of the alumni 
feel as I do. — 1ST. F. Rodman. 


One Hundred and Forty-four Members of the Farmers' Union Dine at Swain Hall 

and Inspect the Campus 

When 144 farmers representing the Farmers' 
Union of North Carolina came over from Durham 
in automobiles on November 18th to be the guests of 
the University at dinner in Swain Hall, and to in- 
spect the campus, a new departure, according 
( '. S. Barrett, president of the national organization, 
was made. Never before in his experience had a 
slate union in convention assembled, adjourm 

e guesi of a stal rsity. 1 Isually, he hu- 

morously declared, such conventions -pent some pari 
of their time in planning how they mighl dispense 
with such institutions altogether, rather than in 
plai uing deliberately bow they might work out a pro- 
gram which among other things would incln 
rnizing of the sorl be was then witnessing. 

1 he occasion of the visil 'ery natural one, 

and the three hours spent on the Hill by the Union 
were delightfully tilled. The Union had been hold- 
ing its annual meeting in Durham anil had planned 

for its final session a visit to the campus. In honor 
of its visitors the University suspended recitations 
at noon and faculty and student body met their 
guests in ( rerrard Hall. 

President Graham gave the vistors a most hearty 
ime. IP' made it clear that the University today 
-\<<r< i ol 1m long merely to the professor and the stu- 
who happen to be on the campus, but that it 
igs to the people of the State, just as the state 
buildings at Raleigh belong l<> North Carolina or 
the courl bouse in any given county b to the 

citizens of the county in which the building is locat- 
ed. The president and faculty serve a- the guardians 
of the University whose duty is to serve the entire 
citizenship of the State. 

In Union, President 

'■rah;: "The Farim on more than any 

other organization justifies the hope and belief that 

organized into an efficient working 



body. It has seized the essential ideas in democracy, 
education, which makes man more efficient, and co- 
operation, which renders him sympathetic towards 
others. It has not only stood for making a more 
efficient farmer but has taught that he must co-oper- 
ate with other groups. It has made clear that a very 
definite relationship exists between the farm and the 
church, the farm and the school, and the farm and 
the professional world." 

President Graham then spoke of the effort the 
University is making to function in the life of the 
entire State. The purpose of the state university as 
Jefferson conceived it was to fit young men to be 
efficient in any profession and as members of society 
to be appreciative of all professions. Its object should 
be to teach men how to do their own work well and 
how to live well rounded lives. 

In concluding, President Graham called attention 
to the presence among the student body of more 

than 300 sons of farmers, showing that the Univer- 
sity is serving the farmers directly here on the cam- 
pus. He also referred to the work which has been 
done for the advancement of agriculture in North 
Carolina by the more than sixty students who have 
gone from the University into the service of state 
and national soil survey bureaus. 

The responses to President Graham's welcome 
were made by President H. Q. Alexander and Dr. 
J. M. Templeton, of the North Carolina Union, and 
President C. S. Barrett, of the national organiza- 
tion. Each speaker expressed the pleasure of the 
Union in being present and wished the University 
increased success in carrying on its fine work. 

Dinner was served in Swain Hall at 1 :45. A visit 
to Peabody Hall, the Society rooms, the Library and 
laboratories, and the new athletic field completed 
the program and the party returned to Durham at 
four o'clock. 


Carolina, After Maintaining a Superb Defense in the First Two Periods, Goes Down 

Before Virginia 14 to 

Pitted against what was admittedly the strongest 
team ever developed by her honored rival, and fight- 
ing with a spirit which will become one of her cher- 
ished traditions, Carolina lost to Virginia on Thanks- 
giving Day in Richmond by the score of 14 to 0. 
Victory came to the Orange and Blue in the third 
and fourth periods and then only after Carolina's 
defense, surprising to the adherents of the White 
and Blue and to the Virginians alike in its versatil- 
ity and strength, had been weakened through injury 
to three of its mainstays, Tandy, McDonald and 

The two touchdowns came as the result of en- 
forced fumbles by Carolina when under the shadow 
of her goal and after she had lost her power to resist 
successfully the drives of the Virginia back-field. In 
making these fourteen points Virginia made it her 
eighth consecutive victory over Carolina and brought 
to a close an unprecedented season in which she had 
won eight victories, Yale and Vanderbilt being in- 
cluded in the list of those defeated, and had been 
beaten only by Harvard who was unable to cross 
her goal line. 

Carolina Showed Splendid Defense 

Apart from the splendid generalship and phy- 
sical perfection of the Virginia eleven, the most 
spectacular feature of the contest was Carolina's 
superb defense. The repeated stands which her 

line made when her opponents were within her five 
and two yard line thrilled the Carolina adherents, 
and at the end of the first half gave the Tar Heels 
hope that the score might be held to a tie. Further- 
more, time after time Carolina got through the Vir- 
ginia line or around the end in time to block a play 
or to hurry a pass and thereby render it ineffective. 
Seemingly, Carolina, in throwing Virginia for losses, 
piled up a greater total of yards than she was able to 
measure off when she had the ball, and by means 
of her perfect work in this particular was able to 
rob Mayer and his companions in the Virginia back- 
field of the brilliant end runs and forward passes 
in which they had starred in other games during 
the season. 

No Match For Virginia in Offense 

In offensive playing Carolina was clearly outclass- 
ed. Depending upon a style of attack which quickly 
became transparent to the opposing defense, she was 
constantly forced to kick. Throughout the game she 
made but one first down and gained only 29 yards, 
whereas Virginia made 17 first downs and gained 
227 yards. Virginia also gained 40 yards through 
completed forward passes and four times was within 
distance to attempt four unsuccessful field goals. 
Carolina failed to gain by completed passes and at 
no time seriously threatened the Virgiuia goal. 

Played under ideal weather conditions and be- 




fore a record crowd, the game, while bitterly disap- 
pointing in the result, because it marked the defeat 
of the efforts not merely of one season, but the cumu- 
lative planning and training of three years, was char- 
acterized by the cleanest sportsmanship, and Caro- 
lina's gameness to the end upheld the best in her tra- 

Every member of the team fought to the utmost of 
his capacity and the victory went to the team which 
clearly demonstrated superiority in physical endu- 
rance and in ability to produce the necessary play 
at the opportune moment.

Press Comments 

There is nothing - new that we can say about the 
game. Those who saw it knew, and those who heard 
the continuous report must have felt that the team 
was putting its utmost into the fight, that every man 
was filling his posiion with all his ability. To a 
team of such parts we do all honor and wish that we 
were so competent. — Tar Heel. 

Carolina tried the same old stuff. The Princeton 
shift, which was used exclusively, couldn't fool school- 
boys. When this form of attack failed, they bad 
nothing left. Virginia played her line splLt on de- 
fense, ami when they had seen Carolina shift, thfy 
simply jumped with it and made it useless. — Rich- 
mond News-Leader. 

The backfield which crushed the Yale defense was 
pushed to its utmost to assemble these two touch- 
downs, and the defense which kept the Virginia goal 
inviolate from Harwd feet was at times hard push- 
ed to withstand the savage attacks of the Carolina 
backs. Except for two fumbles at critical moments 
the Blue and White would probably have emerged 
with a tie score, so potent was its defense when dan- 
ger threatened. Undoubtedly, according to veteran 
spectators at the annual classic, the exhibition of 
fight that afternoon was the most wonderful and as- 
tounding display of courage ever revealed by a 
Chapel Hill team. — Charlotte Observer. 

In the Carolina game she (Virginia) met a foe 
worthy of her best steel — a foe who resisted her at- 
tack longer and better than any other opponent has 
done this year save the wearers of the Crimson. In 
the end, the steady hammering of the Orange and 
Blue beat down her opponent's strength. But the 
Blue and White fought to the last, and Virginia won 
by the sweat of her brow everything she got. A 
cleaner, harder game was never played, and every 
Virginian willingly pays tribute to the spirit of the 
Blue and White. And no true Virginian who wit- 
nessed their game but losing fight Thanksgiving day 
can help feeling the sincerest admiration for their 
pluck, and we all wish them better luck — next year!

George Tandy, accredited all-Southern center for 
1913, 1914, and 1915, was elected captain of the 
Carolina football team for next year at the team's 
annual banquet at the Murphy Hotel in Richmond 
after the Thanksgiving game. Tandy throughout 
his three years on the Carolina team has been one 
of the most brilliant and dependable players, both 
on offense and defense, and his drop-kicking has won 
more than one game for the Blue and White. 

In this year's Virginia game he displayed re- 
markable courage and nerve. Although his collar- 
bone was broken in the second play of the game, he 
continued to play u. lil the third quarter and despite 
his injury put up a game the equal of any seen at 
Broad Street Park in many years. 


( 'arolina lost to Trinity in tennis November 12 
and 13, being defeated in the doubles and in one 
match of the singles. Capehart and Combs, of Caro- 
lina, and Lambeth ami Anderson, of Trinity, com- 
posed the opposing teams. In doubles Trinity won 
three straight sets 11-9, 6-4, 6-0. In singles Combs 
defeated Lambeth, of Trinity, 6-4, 6-4, and Capehart 
of Carolina, lost to Anderson, Southern intercolle- 
giate champion in 1913, 6-2, 6-2. 


Fred M. Patterson, Pharmacy '16, was elected 
captain of the varsity baseball team for the season of 
1916 last week. He succeeds Leon Shields who did 
not return to college this year. Before coming to 
Carolina Captain Patterson played first base on the 
Trinity college team for one year. He was kept out 
of the game for the greater part of the season of 

1914 here by a broken ankle. For the season of 

1915 he played second base for Carolina, baited ..'!'•• I 
and fielded .945, at the same time being one of the 
best baserunners on the team. This summer he was 
captain of the Dillon, S. C, team and led the team in 
batting with an average of .335. — Tar Heel. 


Despite the fact that Virginia's football eleven had 
t<> travel over three thousand miles to fill the dates 
scheduled for ]STew Haven, Cambridge, Athens and 
Columbia, the gridiron season was a success finan- 
cially, over $S,000 being realized, a slight increase 
over the previous year. Outside of the Vanderbilt 
and North Carolina games, receipts and expenditures 
about balanced. The team broke even on the Harvard 
and South Carolina trips. The receipts from the 
Vanderbilt game, played here, totaled $6,500, Vir- 
ginia's share amounting to something over $3,000, 
after all expenses had been deducted. The total re- 
ceipts from the Virginia-Carolina contest were close 
to $12,000. This was divided equally between the 
athletic associations of the two universities, after 
the Broad Street Park management had deducted 10 
per cent for use of the park. — Charlottesville corres- 
pondent in the Richmond Journal. 




The University committee on high school athletics 
consisting of N. W. Walker, Chairman ; E. R. Ran- 
kin, Secretary; T. G. Trenchard and C. E. Ervin, 
has made announcement of the second annual State 
championship contest in basketball among the high 
schools of North Carolina. 

The regulations governing the contest this year are 
in the main similar to those which governed last 
year's contest. The State championship game will 
be played in Chapel Hill early in March, between 
the champion teams of the East and West. As is 
usual, a cup will be presented to the winning team. 

This annual contest was inaugurated one year 
ago by the University committee and was received 
with much favor by the high schools. Fifty schools 
took part in the contest last year. The Winston- 
Salem High School won the championship and was 
awarded the cup. Indications are that the enroll- 
ment this year will be larger than ever. 


0. Max Gardner, of Shelby, was seriously injured 
in the wreck which occurred at Salisbury on the night 
of November 24th when train number 38, of the 
Southern Railway, crashed into the rear end of the 
special operated from Charlotte to Richmond for the 
Thanksgiving Game, killing two passengers and in- 
juring 22 others. Mr. Gardner was rushed to the 
Stokes Hospital in Salisbury, and for several days 
his condition was very critical. Later reports, how- 
ever, indicate that he will recover. 


J. M. Coleman, of Asheville, was elected football 
manager for 1916 by the Athletic Association on 
Saturday, December 4. The assistant managers for 
the new year are Charles Tennant, of Asheville, and 
Roy Armstrong, of Belmont. 


Acting upon reports from the Committees on En- 
trance Certificates and the Curriculum, the faculty at 
its November meeting, made the folowing changes 
in the entrance requirements and in the require- 
ments for the A. B. degree: 

1. That one unit of American history he required 
for admission to the College of Liberal Arts and- to 
the School of Applied Science, and that not more 
than two additional units in history be accepted. 

2. That the requirements in mathematics for en- 

trance to the College of Liberal Arts be algebra, 1.5 
units, and plane geometry, 1 unit; that the require- 
ments in mathematics for entrance to the School of 
Applied Science remain as at present. 

3. That all candidates for the A. B. degree bo 
required to offer for entrance two foreign languages, 
the content of the requirements to remain as at 
present ; that if any other language is begun after 
entrance the beginner's course shall count for college 
credit on condition that it be followed by a second- 
year course in the same language. 

4. That work in the following vocational subjects 
be credited as electives for entrance, to the value of 
not more than two units for admission to the College 
of Liberal Arts and not more than three units for 
admission to the School of Applied Science; that this 
credit be contingent upon a special investigation as to 
the merits of work done in each case: general agri- 
culture, one-half or 1 unit, commercial geography, 
one half or 1 unit, commercial arithmetic, bookkeep- 
ing, stenography and typewriting, 1 unit each, manu- 
al training, 1 or 2 units. 

Summarized these changes mean that only one 
unit of history is required instead of two as at pres- 
ent, and that that one must be American history; 
that solid geometry will no longer he required for 
the admission to the College of Liberal Arts; that 
Greek "A," German "A," and French "A" will 
count for college credit provided the admission re- 
quirements for two foreign languages be satisfied ; 
and, that tinder certain conditions vocational sub- 
jects taught in the high schools will be accredited for 
entrance as elective units. 

The basis of the report which resulted in the above 
changes was a study made by the Entrance Commit- 
tee of the entrance requirements at all the state uni- 
versities and four of the large endowed universities. 
In addition to this a careful analysis was made of the 
requirements for the A. B. degree in these four en- 
dowed institutions and at five of the most reputable 
state institutions. These studies showed that with 
two exceptions (state universities) the University 
stood alone among the universities in the country in 
demanding solid geometry for entrance. They show- 
ed further that the entrance requirements to the Uni- 
versity were more rigid than those of any other state 
university in that other institutions generally allow- 
ed from three to as many as nine elective units, 
whereas the number of elective units allowed by the 
University for entrance to the A. B. 1 and A. B. 2 
degrees was .7 of a unit and to the A. B. 3 degree 
1 unit. The cause of this wide discrepancy in the 
degree of freedom allowed the high schools in the 



preparation for the University as compared to that 
allowed by other state universities lies in the facts 
that the other institutions require only two or two 
and one-half units in mathematics as against three at 
Carolina, that the majority of institutions require 
only one unit of history and some require none at 
all, and that the University entrance requirements 
in foreign languages, compared with the amount of 
foreign language required by many other reputable 
institutions, are excessive. 

The results to be expected from these changes are 
a pronouncd reduction in the conditioned students 
in the freshman class at the University, and on the 
part of the high schools a simplification of the prob- 
lem of preparing a larger number of students for 
the University and at the same time supplying the 
economic and social needs of the community in which 
the school is located. The fact that while sixty per 
cent of the new students this year are accredited with 
fourteen units only eleven per cent have no condi- 
tions, indicates that the machinery connecting the 
high schools with the University has not been arti- 
culating properly. The changes made will go a long 
way toward remedying the trouble. 


Two new bulletins published by the Bureau .of 
Extension were issued during [November. Bulletin 
number 12, which was the first issued this term, 
deals with the teaching of county geopraphy and 
is written by Professor M. .C. S. Noble. Taking 
Orange county as a basis. Professor Noble discusses 
the most helpful and practical methods of teaching 
local geopraphy in the various counties of the State. 

Bulletin number 13 contains a revised statement of 
the courses offered by correspondence and the list of 
lectures which members of the faculty are prepared 
to give throughout the State. In view of the fact 
that courses are now offered covering the reading 
circle work required of the teachers in the elementary 
schools by the State department of education and that 
new credit courses for college students have been pro- 
vided, the Bulletin is being called for by a large 
number of inquirers. One hundred and thirty-five 
lectures are listed in the faculty lecture offerings. A 
number of them are illustrated and treat topics not 
hitherto presented. Write for copies if you have not 
received them. 

Secretary Rankin, on" December 10. Three thous- 
and copies were issued for the 300 schools which will 
be enrolled before the year is over, and the work on 
the preparation of the arguments pro and con will 
soon be under way. If the school in your commun- 
ity has not entered, urge it to do so at once. 


Extension lectures have been delivered recently by 
members of the faculty as follows: L. A. Williams,

Phi Beta Kappa wants to start something. It is 
tired of being an honorary society of has-beens. At 
least that was the desire expressed by R. B. House, 
F. F. Bradshaw, and other student members of the 
society at a called meeting of the organization held 
in the Y. M. C. A. on the night of November 11th. 
After considerable discussion, it was decided that 
meetings should be held regularly once a month 
throughout the term at which problems affecting the 
scholarly and cultural phases of campus life should 
be studied and that plans should be devised by which 
the organization should become a constructive force 
in the intellectual life of the University.

Among the many attractions of the dance week this 
fall the performances of the Glee and Mandolin 
Clubs, and of the Dramatic Club, deserves special 
mention. Both were of a high order, and showed that 
these organizations are making an earnest attempt to 
put out productions that will not only be entertain- 
ing and amusing, but a credit to the University. 

The Glee Club, under the efficient leadership of 
Preston Epps, and the Mandolin Club and Orches- 
tra, directed by William Wright, gave a combined 
program on Thursday evening, December 2. The 
first half of the program was more of a classical 
nature. Glees, choruses, quartets and solos were 
effectively rendered. The orchestra, which has been 
revived after a lapse of two years, came in for a 



great deal of applause, which was well deserved. Mr. 
Epps' vocal solo, Mr. Wright's violin solo, and Earl 
Harris' piano solo, showed a great amount of talent. 
The second half of the program was of a more popu- 
lar nature. The setting was a college student's room, 
and with this as a background, music, vaudeville, 
juggling and fun in general was indulged in. Meb. 
Long brought forth prolonged applause with his ac- 
cordion solos. Buck Wimberly proved himself a 
vaudeville artist. 

The Dramatic Club performed this year Augustus 
Thomas' "Witching Hour." It was a difficult num- 
ber, but the players proved equal to the task, and 
many discerning critics afterwards pronounced the 
performance the best ever given on the Hill. Charlie 
Coggin gave a superb interpretation of Jack Brook- 
field, the gambler, perhaps the best work on the stage 
he has ever done, and that is saying much. Buck 
Wimberly, as Lew Ellinger, seemed admirably suited 
to his part, and played it with great force and en- 
thusiasm, as did Sid Blackmer as Hardmutb, the 
attorney, and villain of the play. Barney Bitts play- 
ed the part of the youth, Clay Whipple, with great 
finish. Bruce Webb again demonstrated his ability 
to make a charming girl, and his interpretation of the 
difficult feminine role of Helen won applause. Greg- 
ory Graham gave a faithful rendering of Justice 
Prentice, and George Green, in the dual role of Tom 
Denning and Justice Henderson, showed that he pos- 
sessed great dramtic ability. The minor parts were 
also well taken. Dougall McMillan played the part of 
Alice, Bob Garrett, that of Viola, and Barber Towler 
was Harvey, the old negro servant. Jas. L. Harri- 
son is managing the Dramatic Club this year, while 
W. G. Monroe acts in the same capacity for the 
Glee Club. 


Kobert R. Reynolds, of Asheville, was a visitor to 
the Hill recently. He gave a talk November 16th 
at the Pickwick, Chapel Hill's moving picture thea- 
tre, on photo-plays. 

His play, "Captain Bob of the National Guard," 
was shown at the Pickwick on the same night.

This song will hardly be recognized by University 
of North Carolina men, though they've sung it thou- 
sands of times, in times of victory and in times of 
defeat. It is a Chinese version of the stirring Caro- 
lina song: "I'm a Tar Heel born, I'm a Tar Heel 

It was sung in Chinese fashion in Chapel recently 
by Eugene Barnett, Carolina representative in the 
Orient, who transplanted it to China five years ago, 
when he gave up a life bright with promise in Ameri- 
ca, and went in the Y. M. C. A. work in Hangchow. 
Barnett, who was a Carolina debater, Y. M. C. A. 
Secretary, and all-around good man, has, in the five 
years he has worked in Hangchow, done a wonderful 
work. He is described by John R. Mott as one of 
the most promising of the young workers in China. 

He expects to return to Hangchow in January 
with his family. During his three days' visit to the 
University he interested large audiences in Eastern 
problems and missionary effort. 


Statistics taken from the University library report 
for 1914-'15 show that the library now contains 74,- 
750 volumes, of which 3455 were added during 1914- 
'15. Of the 3455 volumes added during the year, 1206 
were secured through purchase, 509 represent the 
annual addition of bound periodicals, 185 were re- 
ceived from the various State offices of North Caro- 
lina, and 225 were gifts from the Federal govern- 
ment. The Bain Memorial Library and the Boylan 
collection together contained 900 volumes. The re- 
maining 370 of the total were gifts from individuals, 
from private societies and organizations in the State, 
and from societies in other states.

An announcement of a new requirement in Eng- 
lish has recently been authorized by the University 
through the department of English. The regulation 
goes into effect in 1916-'17, and its purpose is to se- 
cure better use of English on the part of the student 
body. Althought students may have passed English 
1-2 (formerly English 1 but now English 1-2 accord- 
ing to the new system of catalogue numbering), the 
English of their reports, themes, quizzes, examina- 
tions, etc., is to be carefully watched hereafter by 
the instructors in the various departments, and if it 
is found to be seriously faulty they are to be required 
to take additional training in English next year. 

The weaknesses in writing which the department 
wishes to obviate are: (1) illogical sentence construc- 
tion; (2) errors in grammar; (3) misleading punc- 
tuation: i 4- 1 slangy, cheap, expressions; and (5) 
misspelling. No credit will be given for the addi- 
tional course.

S. R. Newman, for three years a member of the 
University and student in the medical school, has 
been heard from at the University of Virginia to 
which he has gone to complete his course in medi- 
cine. A recent number of the Virginia Alumni 
News carries a campus note to the effect that he has 
organized a Menorah Society at Virginia similar to 
that organized at Carolina two years ago. The Me- 
norah Society is a Jewish culture organization, 
branches of which are being established in colleges 
and universities throughout the country for the bene- 
fit of Jewish students. 


The Wisconsin Legislature has just voted $7,080,- 
000 for popular education and enlightenment; for 
public schools, normal schools, technical schools, pub- 
lic libraries, and the University. 

It is nearly a three-fold increase in ten years. It 
is more than the state expenditures in North Caro- 
lina for all purposes whatsoever, although the two 
states have almost the same population. 

The University gets $2,800,000; the stenographers 
alone receive $87,000 a year. In the University of 
North Carolina they receive less than $1,800. 

Liberal investment of public money in public 
education puts a community on the safe side of the 
deadline. Wisconsin really believes in public edu- 
cation. — University Neivs Letter.

The October number of Studies in Philology, 
which has recently come from the press, completes 
volume twelve of this well known publication. But 
volume twelve deserves special attention, for it is 
made up of four numbers. When it was suggested 
that the Studies be published quarterly instead of 
annually many feared that the undertaking would be 
impossible, or at least extremely difficult. The 
scholarly articles which go to make up this volume 
are enough to convince one that there is no dearth of 
material for such a publication. Well known scholars 
and libraries both in this country and in Europe have 
subscribed to the publication within the last year, 
and it is doing much to add to the University's repu- 
tation for high scholarship. In fact, Studies in 
Philology is the only journal of its kind published 
in the South. Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, head of the 
English Department, is now managing editor. 

The contents of the volume just completed are as 

1. January — Wine, Beer, Ale, and Tobacco: A 
seventeenth century Interlude. Edited with Intro- 
duction and Notes by James Holly Hanford, Asso- 
ciate Professor of English. 

2. April — The Characters of Terence, by G. 
Kenneth G. Henry, Assistant Professor of Latin. 

3. July— The "Act Time" in Elizabethan Thea- 
tres, by Thornton Shirley Graves, Professor of Eng- 
lish, Trinity College. 

4. October — The Latin Prefix Pro- in French, by 
William Morton Dey, Professor of French. 

The numbers of the Studies for 191 G will be of un- 
usual interest. The January number will be the 

Bain Memorial number. Many eminent scholars 
have consented to contribute to this. Professor B. 
L. Gildersleeve, of Johns Hopkins, will contribute a 
classical study, entitled "Vocational Training;" Pro- 
fessor C. F. Smith, of Wisconsin, will give a com- 
mentary on a passage from Thucydides; Professor 
L. H. Chamberlayne, of South Carolina, will make a 
study of the poet Nonnus; Professor W. H. Bocock, 
of Georgia, will treat of certain grammatical matters 
in Greek ; Professor W. P. Trent, of Columbia, will 
discuss Translations of Horace's Odes; Professor J. 
F. Boyster, of Texas, will deal with the Causative 
Verb ; Dr. George Howe will discuss a "Type of 
Verbal Bepetition in Ovid's Elegy;" and Professor 
Henry will write upon the "Meaning of Stataria as 
applied to the Comedies of Terence." All of these 
men are leading scholars in their respective fields. 

The April number will be a Shakespeare Centen- 
ary number. There will be several contributions on. 
subjects relating to Shakespeare and his time. Pro- 
fessor C. Alphonso Smith, of Virginia, will be one of 
the contributors. 


It has been a year of good service to the State 
of North Carolina which has been given by the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina News Letter, a weekly 
publication at the State University which labors for' 
the State. 

The News Letter has in the first year of its career 
grown to a circulation of seven thousand, the increase 
from three thousand being in response to requests 
for it by letter and postcard, there being no charge 
for the publication, which is a part of the work of the 
Bureau of Extension. But its real circulation is far 
and beyond seven thousand because the press of the 
State passes on much of what it has to say. 

It is not an advertisement for the University — 
except as it shows the spirit of work which is domi- 
nating the University — but it is a publication which 
above all things concerns itself about North Caro- 
lina, the News Letter devoted, as it can truly say, 
"to the resources, opportunities, possibilities, and 
achievements of the State; to her problems, promises, 
and puzzles, educational, economic and social." And 
in this it is doing its work well. 

We congratulate the editors of the publication on 
the service they have done during the first year of the 
News Letter. And we congratulate the State that 
there are being presented so ably and so well those 
things concerning it which have in them the teach- 
ings which go to make this a greater State. — Neivs 
and Observer. 




The memory of the oldest inhabitant runneth not 
back sufficiently far to recall the day when the wind- 
mill and the hydraulic ram were first employed as 
means for forcing water to higher elevations. It 
remained for T. F. Hickerson, '04, associate pro- 
fessor of engineering, however, to combine the prin- 
ciples of the overshot wheel and the force pump in 
a wheel-pump machine for lifting water and thereby 
making possible the installation of a simple inex- 
pensive system of home waterworks within the reach 
of almost any farmer in the piedmont or mountain 
section of North Carolina. 

During the recent visit of the Farmer's Union, 
Professor Hickerson gave a demonstration of the 
machine in the space between the New West and 
Memorial Hall. The small dam and chute or race 
necessary for successful operation were lacking but 
were supplied by means of a hose from a spigot in 
New West. The water thus conveyed to the top of 
the steel overshot wheel set the wheel in motion. 
A crank attached to the axle of the wheel operated a 
brass force pump submerged in a bucket of water 
representing a spring or well, and forced the water 
through a pipe to an imaginary tank located some- 
where up about the orator's desk in the Di Hall. 

When the demonstration was first begun the ma- 
chine worked so smoothly that student body and 
visitors alike thought Professor Hickerson was try- 
ing out a new perpetual motion device. Before the 
performance was over it was clearly demonstrated 
that the machine was capable of developing all the 
motive power essential to the installation of a home 
water works system on any farm in North Caro- 
lina where there is a small stream with sufficient 
fall to convey water by pipe or race to the top of an 
overshot water wheel having a height of two or 
more feet. 

Professor Hickerson's wheel-pump is at work on a 
number of North Carolina farms today, and here 
again the State is profiting from investigations car- 
ried on in University class rooms and laboratories.

Mr. George Graham, of Charlotte, writes the following 
letter to his classmates in reference to the big five-year 
reunion of the class of 1911, which will be held at the ap- 
proaching commencement. 

"The class of 1911, long since noted for its remarkable 
come-back spirit, is planning again to revive that same old 
spirit, and come back next commencement to its first class 
reunion. The 1911 reunion committee is getting in touch with 
every 1911 man, and urging him to make every effort to be 
present. Begin now to make your plans to be there. 

"If you are a married man and have been saving all your 
extra coin to take Amy dear and Willie, Jr., to the circus, 
let the cheap imitations slide, and come to the big circus. 
Rube Oliver isn't in a cage but he's a circus in himself. 
Railroad Smith who has been doing missionary work in 
Cuba for the past four years isn't in a side show but he's a 
freak of nature just the same. He has the distinct honor of 
being the only Railroad in Cuba that hasn't gone into the 
hands of a receiver. 

" 'No double tracking in mine,' says Railroad — 'Little Rail- 
roads are too expensive,' he continues. 

"Furthermore, he was the first Railroad that ever crossed 
the Atlantic. Impossible! What's the -mswer? Watered 
Stock ! — fed 'em too. Yes, he will be or free exhibition. 
However, in spite of the fact that there will be many features 
that are worth the trip in themselves, we do not want you 
to get the impression that our main feature will be merely a 
'mid-way', far from it — our motto is, 'all the way.' So you 
married men, just break loose and come anyway, and having 
come, assume that happy-though-married smile, and go your 
way rejoicing. 

"You indiscreet men, if in spite of Zeppelin raids, wars and 
rumors of — marriages, you have failed to have your life in- 
sured with the New England Mutual Life, bring payment for 
your first premium — for Cy'll be there. 

"If you are a school teacher or newspaper man, brace up, 
and get chummy with your plumber — he'll lend you the 

"If you are a confirmed bachelor bring return fare for two 
— for co-eds then and now don't even mean the same thing. 
You remember when we were coming along, the co-eds (with 
the exception of those in our class and one or two others 
that you may know of) carried a special line of ages ranging 
anywhere from 54-40-or-fight to the Spirit-of-76. But time 
has wrought a wonderful change. Those darling-I-am-grow- 
ing-old shades of yesterday couldn't hold a Bunsen burner to 
these meet-me-tonight-in-dream-land tints of today. Ah, 
buddie! When others fail, try Coker's Arboretum, and 
though her heart be as hard as soft coal, it will become as 
soft as hard cider."

In spite of rain, biting weather and the sepulchral 
gloom of .Memorial Hall, the magnetic name of 
William Jennings Bryan, former Secretary of State 
in President Wilson's Cabinet, ami at present the 
self-appointed opponent of the administration's policy 
of preparedness, drew two thousand students, vil- 
lagers, and visitors to Memorial Hall, Sunday morn- 
ing, November 14th, to hear a forceful discussion of 
the European war and its lesson for the United 
States, and filled the hall again at 2:30 P. M. with 

members of the Y. M. C. A. and others to listen to 
an analysis of the fundamental principles of govern- 
ment, society, and religion. Both meetings were com- 
plimentary to the local Y. M. C A., and gave ex- 
pression to Mr. Bryan's interest in the Association's 
work on the campus. 

Opposes Preparedness 

The thought of Mr. Bryan's morning address was 
centered upon the question of preparedness. He dis- 
cussed the magnitude of the present war; he showed 
the falsity of the philosophy from which it sprang— 
that might makes right ; and proposed a way out of 
the present chaos to permanent peace. This way 
was not by following the example of the pistol-toting 
man or the code of the duellist. He preferred the 
calm consideration of all controversies and their ad- 
judication through treaties and arbitrations. "If 
the war dogs in Europe won't stop fighting," he dra- 
matically exclaimed, "don't let ns get hydrophobia 
over here !" 

Mr. Bryan then devoted his attention to the jingo 
editors and the representatives of the munitions 
manufacturers who are carrying on a systematic 
propaganda to lead the nation into the camp of the 
militarists. He assured his hearers that they to- 
tally misrepresented the real sentiment of the Ameri- 
can people and concluded his address with the graphic 
sentence, "You ran no more judge the sentiment of 
the peace-loving people of this nation by the ravings 
of jingoes than you can measure the depth of the 
ocean by the foam on the crest of its waves." 
Address Before the Y. M. C. A. 

The individual's relation to government, to society, 
and to religion, was the theme of Mr. Bryan's after- 
noon address before the Y. M. C. A. He expressed 
his life-long interest in the Y. M. C. A. as an or- 
ganized developer and conservator of Christian 
character and made a forceful appeal to the student 
body to take an active part in government, to pay 
the full debt it owes to society, and to base its par- 
ticipation in the affairs of government and society 
upon a firm faith in the things of the spirit.
