OPINION AND COMMENT
The President's Report for 1915, together with
the reports of all the otficers of the University, com-
prisine- 114 octavo pages of
THE PRESIDENT'S ^^ ■, .. . m t? •
REPORT matter relating to the Univer-
sity, and by all odds the most
helpful publication issued by the University in fur-
nishing the alumni an intimate view of its activities,
came from the press on January 10. Reprints of
the individual reports of the President and the Di-
rector of the Bureau of Extension are being mailed
to all readers of The Review and copies of the full
report will be mailed to alumni who express their
desire for them.
Four impressions which the reading of the vari-
ous reports of the president and officers conveys are
IMPRESSIONS ^°^'t^y °^ special note. They are:
(1) That the University is experi-
encing a remarkable growth in all of its departments
and activities; (2) That the administrative work of
the University is becoming more and more systemat-
ically organized; (3) That a splendid spirit of co-
operation permeates the faculty and student body in
realizing the institution's ideals; and (4) That a
new and deeper loyalty to the University is daily
being evidenced by students, alumni, and the State
Beginning with the freshman class, 307 students
were enrolled during the fall of 191.5, while the reg-
istration in the Graduate School reached
84. In 1914 the total number of men
working for advanced degrees was only 61. The
grand total of all students enrolled during the year
was 1882. They were distributed as follows: Reg-
ular session 1123; Summer School 731; Correspond-
ence division 28. In March and April, 1915, 250
schools having membership in the Debating Union,
contested in the presence of from 60,000 to 75,000
people for the Aycock Memorial Cup, and on Decem-
ber 22nd 300 schools had entered for the approaching
contest in April, 1916. On December 31 the Library
contained 76,250 volumes, and was regularly re-
ceiving 700 periodicals and transactions of learned
societies, not including the many North Carolina
weekly papers sent to its reading room. At Swain
Hall 285,053 meals at 13>4 cents per meal were
served during the first year of its operation, and by
means of the Inaugural and Alumni luncheons serv-
ed in it the fact was established that hereafter events
calling for the serving of 500 or 600 persons at a
time can easily be provided for. With the comple-
tion of Emerson Field, the University came into the
possession of an athletic field and equipment equaled
by few institutions in the South. By means of con-
tests in track athletics, baseball, basketball, and foot-
ball, the University has greatly stimulated an interest
among the students of North Carolina secondary
schools in physical development. While no new
buildings were erected on the campus during the
year, the financial support for maintenance was in-
creased $20,000 by the General Assembly, and the
value of the University property reached the total
To the business man in the up-to-date business

ORGANIZATION ^^"^"^ employee, where every de-
partment has a complete equip-
ment of filing cabinets, typewriters, office furniture,
etc., and where through house telephones the details
of the work of every employee can be known by the
superintendent within a moment, the internal organ-
ization of the University may seem far from perfect.
Nevertheless, very definite progress in the direction
of a more thorough business organization within the
University has been made during the year. In the
Business Manager's office thorough up-to-date records
concerning every activity of the physical plant are
filed daily. Information, for example, concerning
the number of meals served at Swain Hall for break-
fast on a given day and their cost, is always avail-
able. Similarly another set of records shows accur-
ately the number of gallons of water pumped into the
standpipe each hour of the day, together with the
pounds of coal consumed in the power plant in the
operation, and the number of gallons of water each
pound of coal turns into steam.
In a less detailed way, a notable organization has
been perfected during the year in the Registrar's
office, the School of Education, the Bureau of Ex-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
tension, and the Department of English, and definite
systematic work has been started on the Ahimni Cat-
alogue. Not all the office equipment and clerical
assistance needed in any one department has by any
means been secured. As a matter of fact, these
things at present constitute one of the University's
most serious lacks, but the work of the departments
mentioned has been greatly facilitated, and through-
out the entire University the machinery is being so
organized as to meet as effectively as possible the
rapidly enlarging work of the institution. The Uni-
versity clearly realizes that nothing but the best meth-
ods can be employed by it if it is to meet satisfac-
torily the large task of service laid upon it, and it is
preparing itself to meet the new demands in a thor-
oughly eificient, biisiness-like way.
Reference has frequently been made in The Re-
view to the many campus enterprises in which fac-
CO-OPERATION ''^'^' Student body, and town have
taken part. Rally -Day, the JMoon-
light School CampaigTi, to mention only two cam-
pus activities, splendidly illustrate the sort of co-
operation which has become the rule on the Hill.
Out in the State, the alumni in addition to the sup-
port they have given to athletics, have assumed in
many instances their share of responsibility in fur-
thering the University's work. Throughout all the
reports reference to this spirit constantly recurs
and the impression deepens that much of the best
achievement of the University is directly attributable
That this spirit has extended also beyond the
campus to the State at large, and that an increasing
interest in the University is grow-
ing throughout the State, is also
evident. With this thought in mind,
President Graham concludes his re-
port to the trustees in the following words :
It is with a profound sense of happiness that I
report the conviction, fortified in many substantial
ways, that the alumni, the students, and the public
at large are taking a more continuoiis and sympa-
thetic interest in the serious work of the University.
Loyalty to the institution is losing none of the en-
thusiasm that finds its occasional magnetic center in
great athletic contests; but it is steadily receiving
also a far deeper and richer interpretation. There
have been, during the past year, many inspiring evi-
dences that we are coming more and more to see that
true loyalty to the University consists not merely in
pride in the institution, nor merely in love for it as
our alma mater ; but also, and mainly, in our personal
devotion to the high things for which the institution
stands, and our practical service in making these
things prevail. This devotion we share with all good
men everywhere, whose aim and ideals are kindred,
and with every agency that seeks to make them effect-
ive in the life of the State. The essential character
of the institution is co-operation in its fullest and
deepest sense. It is the institution for expressing in
intelligent and constructive terms all of those varied
aspects of human effort that make complete and uni-
fied the life of the State. Adequate equipment, there-
fore, to do its work with freedom and vigor it asks
not in any selfish measure, but as the heart of the
general good. If we view it in the lesser way of
partisanship, whether friendly or unfriendly, we
shall think too lightly of its mission, misconceive its
true character and potential greatness, and so fail to
give it the means to perform its function with the
strength, the vision, and the confident faith neces-
sary to the leadership committed to its care.
Two other features of the reports afford satisfac-
tion of a genuine sort. The University's part in the

day are things oi which every alum-
nus can well be proud. In 1907 Prof. N. W. Walker,
Professor of Secondary Education in the University,
and State High School Inspector, assisted in drafting
the acts which brought into being the present system
of State-sujjported high schools. Since then he has
devoted more than half his time to the inspection and
supervision of the schools, and in his official sum-
mary for the biennium 1913-'15, shows that on June
30, 1915, there were 214 of these schools in the State
with a total enrollment of 8,986 students. Eighty-
seven of these were four-year high schools with
4,979 pupils. The total expenditure for the mainte-
nance of these was $196,545.6.5 in 1913, and $247,-
253.59 in 1915. During the past two years fifty
State high school buildings have been erected, cost-
ing in round numbers, with the equipment added,
about $700,000. Along with the high schools the
farm life school movement has been stressed with
the result that agricultural instruction is now given
in 50 or more schools and special agricultural de-
partments meeting the requirements of the farm-life
school law have been established and equipped in 19.
Nor has attention been centered merely upon the
physical and financial support of these schools. Pro-
fessor Walker has constantly assisted in the improve-
ment of standards of teaching, has edited for the use
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of principals and teachers the High School Bulletin
published by the University, and through the Sum-
mer School and the School of Education, has aided
greatly in the professional training of those who in
large measure have taken charge of the schools. The
University, in these and other ways, has given every
aid possible to the perfection of the system, and re-
joices that so much has been accomplished for the
North Carolina high school boys and girls.
Thrice-repeated and merited commendation is be-
stowed in the report of the President, the Dean of
the College of Liberal Arts, and the
Director of the Bureau of Exten-
sion, on the Y. M. C. A., a summary
of whose many activities appears elsewhere in this
number of The Review. In other days the Societies,
the Senior Class, the Student Council, or some other
organization, may have been entitled to the first place
in student leadership on the campus. That honor
today unquestionably belongs to the Y. M. C. A.
Its power for good on the campus is generally recog-
nized, and it is doing for the University a work that
no other organization can do. In view of this fact,
it deserves more liberal support at the hands of the
University and alumni, and a new Y. M. C. A. house,
costing not less than $50,000, should be one of the
buildings planned for in the very near future.
In May, 1914, The Review went at some length
into the matter of University finances, especially in
so far as it concerned the salaries of
the teaching staff and the physical
equipment which the University could
place at the disposal of its instructors. At that time
The Review was thoroughly convinced that this
constituted one of the biggest problems which the
University has to face. It is still of this opinion.
Every alumnus who has considered the matter even
superficially, is interested in it, and will doubly wel-
come President Graham's discussion of it in the fol-
lowing paragraphs entitled, in his report, "Our
Chief Concern" :
We cannot lay too much emphasis on the fact that
as administrators of the welfare of the University,
our chief concern is to conserve and steadily to in-
crease the strength of the faculty. Every change
made in the staff, however small the position affected,
and however temporary the change, is important, be-
cause it is a change in the fundamental source of the
institution's vitality. It means a gain or a loss at
the heart of its life. The work of a university has no
worth except as its faculty are workers of worth. Al-
though the ability, energy, and ideals of the members
of a faculty vary as they do in the members of any
other profession, and although, in spite of this varia-
tion, uniformity of salary in the various grades is
essential, it is no less essential that men of unusual
distinction be recognized and encouraged, and re-
warded in every possible way by the faculty and the
governing board. ~No price is too great to pay for
the services of a great teacher, and no democratic
commonwealth is rich enough in men or poor enough
in means to part with a great teacher at any price.
North Carolina has in the past decade given to half
a dozen other states some of their foremost teachers
and educational leaders. To let such men go as a
deliberate contribution to the development of other
states would be a form of spiritual generosity worthy
of some praise; but to let them go because of a small
dift'ereuce in salary is the most foolish of all possible
It is not that the difference of a few hundred dol-
lars determines where a professor will do his work.
For every man that accepted a call to work with a
higher salary elsewhere, three have refused such
calls. The clear fact of importance is that the qual-
ity of the faculty of an institution will eventually be
determined by the salaries it pays. The quality of
the new men it can get is, in the main, fixed by the
same consideration. It is absolutely necessary that
we have largely increased funds to increase the gen-
eral scale of the faculty salaries, and to increase the
maximum for the highest grade, in order to approach
fairly the salary average of institutions of equal rank,
and to enable our professors under higher cost levels
to live with tolerable freedom. The faculty and the
trustees should require, with jealous and impartial
care, that service of distinction (varying in quality
or degree in the different grades) be rendered al-
ways as a basis for promotion ; but where such ser-
vice is rendered the healthful development of the
institution demands that it be assured certain and
generous recognition. This service of distinction by
the faculty is the source of absolutely all of the virtue
in the work that the University does, and no institu-
tional activity, and no superficiality of college life,
however attractive, should obscure this central and
The next three or four months are to be extremely
busy ones for the University. Three hundred debates
in as many communities in the
State are to be held and the final
contest is to be carried through
here. Tnterscholastic meets in basketball, baseball,
tennis, and track are also scheduled for high schools
and the winners are to try for honors on the campus.
CAN YOU BE
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Members of the faculty will till no less than one
hundred appointments at school commencements and
other public meetings. The Glee and Dramatic clubs
will go on their spring tours, and the Bureau of Ex-
tension will be pushing its work of serving the State
through all of its organized departments. The work
for students in the Summer School has already be-
gun, and the student body in September should be
greater than it has ever been before.
Here is an opportunity for alumni support. To
help in arranging the details of the local events,
whether in debate or athletics, to assist the Uni-
versity in making helpful connection with the local
community, to interest prospective students in the
University — all of this will be extremely helpful to
your alma mater. The Review asks the direct ques-
tion : Can you be depended on to take a definite part
in this work ? Your help is greatly needed and will
be warmly appreciated.
An extremely interesting exhibit could be given at
the Library, if the University were so minded, of
instances in the line of publications in
which Carolina has led other Southern in-
stitutions. The High School Bulletin
would constitute exhibit A. Georgia, Alabama, and
Illinois, to mention a state not Southern, have fol-
lowed in the order named with a similar publication,
and last week Virginia followed with volume one,
number one of a publication so nearly like the
University's that Professor Walker could scarcely
distinguish which was the old and which was the new.
Since Secretary Eankin started the machinery of the
Debating Union, South Carolina, Florida, Virginia,
Kentucky, and Tennessee have fallen in line, and
their publications could he placed in Exhibit B to-
gether with the original bulletin on "Woman Suff-
rage." Exhibit C has to do with the Bureau of Ex-
tension publications. South Carolina got under way
last year and sent a delegate to the first meeting of
the National University Extension Association and
did almost all but adopt Carolina's motto, "Write to
the University when you need help," in its first Ex-
tension Series. And now comes Virginia with Ex-
tension Series, volume one, number one, along the
lines of Bulletin number six in Carolina's series.

What, as you look back on it, most vividly remains
with you from the college teaching you had ? The
jjresidcnt of one of the leading
universities recently reported
these five reasons for poor teach-
ing in college: "too few instruc-
tors are interested in education; too great absorption
in specialization ; teachers are careless as to the man-
ners, speech, conduct, sense of proportion of students ;
a bad tradition that prevents inspection of work of
young teachers ; a mischievous notion that a man who
is master of his subject is thereby of necessity a good
teacher." He recommends "supervision of the work
of inexperienced teachers ; that mere lecturing should
not be tolerated, much less mere di'oning; that pre-
liminary and introductory explanations should be
made to show students the purpose and method of a
course; that the psychological and not the logical
order be followed in presenting matter to students."

got in the college classroom? Write us a hundred
words or so about it.
IN THE MATTER
CAROLINA MEN RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIPS
Anouncement was recently made by the Divinity
School of Harvard University that scholarships had
been awarded to W. C. Furr, '15, and D. L. Rights,
'13, for the coming year. The scholarships represent
$300 and $350 respectively.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE Y. M. C. A. AT WORK
Every Departmsnt is Actively Engaged in Constructive Work in the Upbuilding of the
Campus and Community
To perfect an organization so that it can continue
without the organizer is the highest type of suc-
cess. This Frank Graham achieved, and when he
went to New York he left behind him the most effi-
cient and capable cabinet of many years to carry
on the work of the Y. M. C. A. for the year 1915-lG.
Work Started Early
A good number of the cabinet members received
great inspiration at Blue Ridge. The memories of
those '"mountain top experiences" had not dimmed
before Lee Edwards had, through the Freshman
Continuation Committee, written a personal letter to
every high school student who had signified his in-
tention of entering the University in the fall. These
assurances of welcome and protfered aid were warmly
responded to, greetings of real pleasure and interest
taking place at University Station where a large
number of the Committee met the incoming new
Information Bureau Gives Assistance
Curtis Crissman and J. R. Edwards operated a
most efficient information bureau, securing perma-
nent ai:d temporary rooms for the men who came
unprcimrcd; locating rooms already engaged; and
discovering lost suit cases and trunks. For three
days I he bureau kept the lobby of the building filled
with seeking and satisfied, and piloted many of the
new men through the difficulties of registration.
On the night of the first day of recitation a gen-
eral meeting of all students was held by the Y. M.
C. A. in Chapel where student leaders explained the
varied forms of college activities, recommending that
the new men take part in the literary societies, dra-
matic and glee clul«, journalism, athletics, campus
and community religion. After this meeting the
entire freshman class was invited to meet the faculty,
young ladies of the town, and upper classmen at the
library where K. C. Vaughan had prepared ever-
greens and refreshments.
Students Furnished Positions
TTerman Jernigan arrived before college opened
and had secured knowledge of all available positions
for self-help students. A large number of places
were filled and are continuing to be filled through his
department. Daily calls for student help are being
answered. Jernigan's department also keeps tab on
what the careless lose and the honest find and thcreliy
brings daily rejoicing to the losers of keys, books,
jewelry, money, fountain pens, etc.
Bible Study Enrollment
The work of the Bible study department was aus-
piciously launched by Dr. 0. E. Brown of Vander-
bilt University, who delivered three addresses on'
"The Principles that Should Guide a ifan in
College Life," "Lining Up With Christian Forces,"
and "The Bible as a Factor in Preparation."
Through an immediate follow-up campaign ^ferril
Parker and William Steele, as heads of the depart-
ment, enrolled 280 men. Later canvassing placed the
enrollment well over the 300 mark. Twenty-four
groups meet every Sunday at 12:30 P. iL in the
dormitories and out in town to study the Lives and
Teachings of Christ and Paul. Rev. W. D. Moss
and Mr. Edgar Turlington lead normal groups for
the leaders during the week. Through these groups,
movements are put through for campus uplift and
betterment and for the maintenance of standards and
Weekly Meetings Held
The system of one regular meeting of the Y. M.
C. A. a week was continued by Robert House and he
has had such speakers as Frank Graham, Rev. J.
J. D. Hall, of Philadelphia, and Dr. W. S. Rankin
of Raleigh, to speak to large audiences. Faculty and
student leaders have held good meetings from week
to week. Ex-secretary W. J. Bryan came to speak
to the University community upon the invitation of
the Y. M. C. A. on November 14th. Memorial Hall
was filled twice to hear him.
Barnett Pays Visit
A big event of the year was the retiirn of Eugene
E. Barnett, two years general secretary of the Y.
M. C. A. here and for the past five j-cars general
secretary of the Y. ^L C. A. at Planchow, China.
He spoke to the students at Chapel Hill twice and to
a packed house in Gcrrard Hall. Those who had
known him noted his marked increased power; those
who met him paid high tribute to Carolina's repre-
sentative on the foreign field. During his visit three
students volunteered for the foreign field. Clai-
bourne Royall has made a good start in raising the
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
foreign fund which is used in the partial support of
Bamett in his present work.
First Zone Activities
Early in September Ealph Stockton and Francis
Bradshaw reorganized and continued the six Sunday
schools conducted by the students in recent years.
Although these schools are from two and one-half to
four miles in the country, the enthusiasm of the
leaders and thirty odd teachers is unfailing and a
splendid service is being devotedly rendered.
Moonlight School Campaigns
It was through these schools that the moonlight
schools were organized and launched on November
1, to run for one month. A call for volunteer teach-
ers resulted in 110 responses. A principal was
named for each school and a corps of teachers as-
signed to each. An attractive program on the first
night brought out 330 of the rural folk and five
schools were begun with an enrollment of 218.
Among this number were sixteen illiterates. Courses
were given in reading, writing, arithmetic, English,
history, spelling and civil government. The schools
were conducted three nights in the week with an
average attendance of 160 per night. Twelve of the
illiterates were taught to read and write and many
more were taught to add, subtract and multiply.
Over sixty students took some active part in the
work. Lantern lectures were given at the schools on
The Life of Christ, Tuberculosis, Eye, Ear, Nose
The work of the schools was characterized by the
unselfish enthusiasm and untiring interest of the
students ; the hearty response and sincere apprecia-
tion on the part of the rural folk, and the willing
and generous co-operation on the part of the Com-
munity Club and townspeople in giving their time
and automobiles to take the teachers to the schools.
The longer established and more permanent edu-
cational work of the Association is being done
through Chairman W. B. Pitts in the Negro Night
School, which, with an enrollment of sixty-six and
a corps of twelve teachers meets five nights in the
week. On IMonday nights Cecil Rymer conducts an
interesting debating society. The courses given are
English, reading, writing, mathematics, spelling, and
Last Spring, after the Mott meetings, Marion Fow-
ler extended his work among the mill people of Carr-
boro from a boy's club into a night school for every
one. This year he has continued the work with ail
excellent organization, and a strong and efiicient fac-
ulty of fifteen. The enrollment is seventy-five, the
average attendance being fifty-five. The school is
conducted five nights in the week and prepares for
the High School. Two debating societies among the
young men have aroused keen interest.
Evangelistic Campaign Planned
For the spring term, Mr. Francis Miller, of the
International Committee of the Y. M. C. A., is to
be here February 4th, 5th, and 6th, for an evange-
listic campaign. Mr. Trawick and Dr. Weatherford,
both of the International Committee, have also prom-
ised to visit the campus during the spring.
On December 11th the receipts from the faculty,
parents, alumni, the University, and the students
amounted to $1,354.22 and the expenditures to
$1,233.57. All payments are made by check, counter-
signed by the advisory treasurer, Mr. J. A. Warren,
with vouchers on file for every cent. A detailed

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
IN THE FIELD OF ATHLETICS
Representatives of the Faculty, Alumni, and Student Body Approve the Idea of a Director
of Athletics and Alumni Coaching
Eepresentatives from the University faculty,
alumui, aud students met at Chapel Hill on the night
of Deeemher IS in the English Conference Eoom
for the purpose of discussing the future athletic poli-
cies of the University. While definite plans and
names were informally talked over in connection
with the football coaching for next year, it was not
within the purpose or authority of the meeting to
determine who the coach should be, but rather to lay
plans for athletic development along large construc-
tive lines. The selection of coaches rests with the
Athletic Council, which is composed of Dr. C. S.
Mangiim, of the faculty; Mr. A. L. Cox, of the
alumni; and Mr. C. T. Woollen, the graduate man-
ager. A number of alumni who were unable to be
present sent letters setting forth their views.
The meeting reached substantial agreement on the
following policies: that alumni coaching be adopted
as soon and as completely as alumni could be found
able to take charge of the coaching; that a general
director of athletics be secured, if possible, of the
highest type in ability and personality, to have ad-
ministrative charge of all athletics, and membership
in the faculty ; that under his leadership especial em-
phasis be laid on the general participation in athlet-
ics; and outdoor sports as an essential part of educa-
tion be encouraged and facilities be provided for the
whole student body to play games; that the highest
standards of sportsmanship be steadily insisted on,
not only in theory, but in every detail of practice;
that the insistence of the faculty on creditable
scholastic standards for athletes be endorsed, and
the support of alumni urged in maintaining these
standards at all times; that competent instruction
be provided for every branch of sport, and that
the development of high school athletics be encour-
aged by the alumni in co-operation with the
alumni of other colleges, entirely apart from
the consideration of where the students expect to
attend college; and that the alumni may co-operate
heartily and fully with authorities in putting these
principles into full practice, future meetings such as
this for consultation be called. The meeting also
expressed its desire to promote progress in athletics
in the State and section through co-operating in every
possible way with other colleges, and encouraging
confidence and friendliness in all athletic relations.
With this platform as a basis for future action, the
Athletic Council, through the Graduate Manager,
has taken up the question of schedule for 1916 and
is now at work attempting to carry out the general
progTam proposed. Announcements of an interest-
ing nature may be expected at an early date.
Coach Trenchard Goes Into Business
After three years of service as head coach at the
University, T. G. Trenchard goes to South Carolina
February 1st to enter the real estate and lumber
business. Coming to the University in. 1913 im-
mediately after Carolina had experienced the most
disastrous season of her career, he resolutely set to
work to rebuild the team and to put athletics, foot-
ball especially, on a firmer basis. During his stay
on the campus he has given himself unstintedly to
the task, and although victory over Virginia has not
been won, Carolina's football standing has steadily
improved. The good wishes of the student body and
alumni follow him in his new work.
Attend National Collegiate Athletic Association
Along with 157 other colleges and universities of
the United States, Carolina was represented by Pro-
fessors Howell and Patterson and Messrs. Wollen
and F. P. Graham at the annual meeting of the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Association which met at
the Hotel Astor in New York on December 29.
Dean L. R. Briggs, of Harvard, presided and stated
the purpose of the meeting as being that of bettering
intercollegiate athletics. The special topic which
continued to come up for discussion was professional-
ism in intercollegiate baseball. Dr. C. H. Herty, of
the faculty athletic committee, was appointed as a
member of the third athletic district commission,
which concerns itself with athletic problems within
a half dozen southeastern and southern states.
Carolina to Meet Harvard
According to annouccments made by the football
managements of the University and Harvard, the
White and Blue squad is to meet the wearers of the
Crimson at Cambridge on October 14th, Carolina
thereby having her first opponuiity of meeting Har-
vard in a gridiron contest. Further announcement
is also made that Princeton will be played early in
the season if present plans work out satisfactorily.
The complete schedule for Ifllfi has not been an-
nounced, but Graduate Manager Woolen states that
games have been arranged to date with Virginia,

Harvard, Wake Forest, Georgia Teeh, V. M. I.,
Princeton, and Davidson. Games with Eichmond
College and South Carolina are pending. V. M. I.
and Wake Eorcst are to be played on the Hill and
if South Carolina and Richmond College are sched-
uled they will be played on Emerson Field.
On account of the fact that the game with Harvard
is scheduled for October 14, it will be impossible to
have a home game on University Day. However, a
special effort will be made to bring the alumni to the
Hill for some of the games to be played here. The
question of adequate railroad service for the games is
now receiving consideration, and by September it is
hoped that plans will be matured by which attend-
ance at the games by large crowds can be made
By losing 22-27 to Wake Forest in Ealeigh on
January 15th, Carolina closed the pre-examination
period of her basketball season. Previous to the
Wake Forest game she had won from Elon and
Statesville Y. M. C. A. and had broken even with
Durham Y. M. C. A. in a two-game engagement.

Track Outlook for 1916
The track schedule for this spring has been made
public by Manager Frank Hackler. It consists of
five meets, two of which will take place on the Hill.
For the first time in four years Washington and Leo
University will be met here. The date is April 22nd.
This should be one of the best meets ever held in
the State. Arrangements are being made to hold the
State Meet on Emerson Field this spring. In addi-
tion to the schedule of meets mentioned here it is
likely that a relay team will be sent to Washington
on February ISth to enter in a race against the
Carlisle Indian team.
The University track team has an unusual amount
of good material this year. Among the letter
men back are: Captain Patterson who runs the
quarter mile; Smith, 220-yard dash; Johnson, 100
yards; Homewood, pole vaulter; Ramsey, shot put-
ter ; and Wright, who broke the State record in broad
jump last year. Gannt, a University of Virginia
letter man, is here this year also. Mr. C. T. Woollen
states that a coach and general trainer will be se-
cured as soon as posible.
The schedule is as follows:
April 8, Clemson College at Clemson College.
April 15, Washington and Lee at Chapel Hill.
April 22, V. P. L at Blacksburg.
April 24, V. M. I. at Lexington, (Pending).
April 29, State Meet at Chapel Hill.
May 1, S. I. A. A. at Richmond or Baltimore.
A. and M. Wins Cross Country Run
In the four-mile cross country run held here 'No-
vember 20th, A. and M. was victorious, winning by
a margin of two points. Upchurch of Carolina finish-
ed first with a time of 22 :15. Rand of Carolina came
second, Init Nimnis was not able to finish better than
eleventh. Goodson, Johnson and Capt. Millwcc, all
of A. and M., finished third, fourth, and fifth, re-
spectively and thereby won the race. The Durham
road was used as the course with the start and finish
in front of the post office. The score was as follows:
A. and M., 12; Carolina, 14; Trinity, 24; Wake
This was the first State-wide race of the kind ever
held in the State and all the teams present informed

ROBERT NEY McNEELY GOES DOWN WITH PERSIA
Involving the question of diplomatic relations
between the United States and Austria-Hungary,
the death of Kobert Xey McXeely, Law '07, consul
to Aden, as a result of the sinking of the Persia in
Mediterranean waters on December 30, has become a
matter of nation-wide interest and has brought to
the heart of the University, of which he was a most
worthy son, profound sorrow.
McISTeely, who at the time of his death was en-
route to Aden, Arabia, to which post he had been
ROBERT NEY McNEELY
appointed by President Wilson last October, was
born in Jackson township, in Union county, on No-
vember 11, 1883. In a family of eleven children,
he was the third son. He received his early educa-
tion at the College Hill and Waxhaw S3hools, and
in 1905 he entered the University. After spending
one year in the academic department, he began the
study of law, winning the Shepherd Bryan prize for
the best thesis in that subject in 1907. In the same
year he received his license and began the practice
of his profession at Monroe. In 1909 he represented
his county in the lower house of the General Assem-
bly, and in 1915 returned to the Legislature as a
member of the Senate. His most distinctive service
was the introduction and splendid work for a thor-
ough-going State-wide primary law.
By the student body and his colleagues in the
General Assembly he was held in high esteem and in
his passing the University is bereft of a son in whose
career there was every evidence of splendid promise.
HONORS AT GRADUATION
By a recent vote, the faculty has established two
distinctions to be awarded at commencement. These
distinctions are to be known as Honors and Highest
Honors in the division or field chosen by the student
for concentrated study. The purpose is to stimulate
scholarship by giving a broader point of view than
that attained by a man who merely passes off, no mat-
ter how creditably, a given number of courses. Stu-
dents are to be encouraged to regard honors at gradu-
ation as the highest academic honor attainable. Un-
like Phi Beta Kappa, the attainment of honors is
not dependent upon high numerical grades alone,
though no student will gain the distinction unless all
his work is of high quality.
The chief feature of the plan consists in the trans-
ference in the case of brilliant students, of responsi-
bility from the lecturer to the student ; the emphasis
is placed on the subject rather than on the course.
Study groups are to be formed, conducted by students
outside of class, where, in the society of older stu-
dents in the same field and of members of the faculty,
topics in literature, history, and science may be dis-
cussed with no suggestion of text book or lectures,
and a relationship established between the great fields
of study comprising the curriculum and the questions
arising from the intensely dramatic and significant
life of today. In this relationship between the col-
lege course and life, in the higher level of thought
and conversation to be encouraged, and in the attempt
to attain something like mastery of a field of thought
instead of certain isolated courses, the new plan
ought to prove, as President Graham remarks in his
report, a "genuine stimulus to the intellectual life of
The following details of administration may be
noted. All coiirses, in the minor subjects as well as
the major, must be passed with high credit. In con-
nection with the regular courses, a considerable
amount of outside reading is expected, or such other
supplementary work as may be prescribed by the de-
partments, in every case closely related to the general
plan of study mapped out by the student. In this
work students will have the guidance and assistance
of special instructors, the object being to stimulate
interest in reading not required as a part of the reg-
ular class work, for its culture value rather than for
direct preparation for exariiinations. Near the close
of the senior year a general final examination, oral or
written or both, will be given. This examination
will test the general knowledge of the candidate on
the whole field of concentrated study, and will also
test his proficiency in a special topic w^ithin the gen-

eral field. The object of this examination, as of the
prescriptions for parallel reading, is to secure better
correlation of courses and relative mastery of the
entire field. The entire plan thus seeks to adapt to
local conditions certain admirable features of the
English university system and of the Princeton sys-

NINETY-THREE COUNTIES ENTER THE DEBATING
Three hundred and twelve high schools in 93
coTinties of North Carolina have enrolled with Secre-
tary E. R. Rankin for the approaching triangular de-
bates of the High School Debating Union which will
be held over the State on March 31st. This is the
largest enrollment in the Union's history and a great
State-wide debate is expected. The schools winning
their two debates on March 31st will send their teams
to Chapel Hill to compete on April 13th and 14th in
the final contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup.
In preparation for the debates steady work is be-
ing done in the high schools by prospective dehaters.
This fact is evidenced by the many letters requesting
material and other assistance which daily come to the
Bureau of Extension. The query to be discussed is
"Resolved, That the United States should adopt the
policy of greatly enlarging its Navy." In order to
aid the debaters, a 64 page bulletin on this subject
was compiled and issued by the Bureau of Exten-
sion. Three thousand copies of this have been sent
to the high schools.
Buncombe County leads the State with 13 schools
enrolled. Robeson comes next with 12, and Guilford
follows with 10. Alamance has 9 and Mecklenburg
8. Johnston, Nash and Wake have 7 each. Gaston,
Iredell and Union have 6 each. Beaufort, Durham,

while back on a visit to the Hill, turned aside from
his medical investigations long enough to lecture
to Professor Williams' class in "Philosophy 4."
At that time he was a member of the medical faculty
of the University of Virginia. In 1909 he returned
to Johns Hopkins where he had received his degree
in medicine and had served as demonstrator in

brilliant work in neurology. He is a member of the

MR. ALFRED NOYES READS
Mr. Alfred Noyes, so happily remembered for his
former reading here more than a year ago, repeated
that success with a program if anything more versa-
tile. The robustness of his form, the enthusiasm of
his personality, and infectious simplicity of his read-
ing are singularly attractive and winning. The
poem, which gives the title to his new volume, The
Lord of Misrule, marked the high pitch of the even-
ing's performance; but the finely-keyed "Song of
Sherwood" and the radiant melodrama of "The High-
waymen" won equal favor. But it is unnecessary
to single individual poems and individual excel-
lencies. ]\fr. Noyes lived up to his reputation, fully
— which is no mean achievement.

a half he held the undivided attention of the audience
— with his narration of personal experiences, impres-
sive word-painting of historic and literary shrines,
acute observations on the temper and spirit of the
nations at war, incisive comments on affairs and
events, amusing anecdotes effectively told. So full
with interesting matter was the lecture that it would
be only unfair to attempt to resume it here.
Suffice it to say that he brought certain ideas and
impressions back from Europe, which were almost
startling in their divergence from the "truths" which
have already become stereotyped in popular con-
sciousness. A particularly interesting feature of the
evening was the reading of his own notable poem, "A
Virginian in Surrey," which appeared in the London
Times and brought him many attentions during his
sojourn in England. The program was concluded
with the reading of a fragment from his report to
Kahn Foundation, under whose auspices he made his
