THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
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
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-
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
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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-
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
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

DRS. GREENLAW AND VENABLE SPEAK

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
PROPOSED ALUMNI FUND APPROVED
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
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.
I for one, although still in debt for part of my
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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.
Please continue to urge the plan for systematic
giving to a University Alumni Fund. — R. W. Mc-
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.
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.
FARMERS VISIT THE UNIVERSITY
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

other organization justifies the hope and belief that

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
THE THANKSGIVING DAY GAME
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
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.

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-
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!

TANDY ELECTED CAPTAIN
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.
CAROLINA LOSES TO TRINITY IN TENNIS
( '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.
PATTERSON CAPTAIN OF BASEBALL TEAM
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.
VIRGINIA GRIDIRON SEASON BIG FINANCIAL
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 ALUMNI REVIEW
SECOND ANNUAL BASKETBALL CONTEST STAGED
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.
O. MAX GARDNER INJURED
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.
COLEMAN IS MANAGER
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.
IMPORTANT ENTRANCE REQUIREMENT CHANGES
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
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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.
NEW EXTENSION BULLETINS
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

PHI BETA KAPPA WANTS TO START SOMETHING
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.

GLEE AND DRAMATIC CLUBS PLEASE
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

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.

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

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

LIBRARY ADDS 3455 VOLUMES
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-

BETTER ENGLISH TO BE REQUIRED
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)

BIG SCALE EDUCATION
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.

STUDIES IN PHILOLOGY
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-

A STATE ASSET
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 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

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
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.

THE REUNION OF NINETEEN ELEVEN
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-
"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

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

being the only Railroad in Cuba that hasn't gone into the
hands of a receiver.

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-

WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN SPEAKS
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.
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.
