DO YOU KNOW 



That according to the most recent census report there were in the United States in 1911 
nearly four million men and women over 65 years of age, nine out of ten of whom were whol- 
ly or partially dependent upon charity? And do you know that according to the most re- 
liable figures obtainable in 1910, nine out of ten of the widows in this country were without 
a home; and that two out of every three found it difficult to get two square meals a day and 
the necessities of life? 

If these facts are less true today, it is because of life insurance. A policy started today 
affords protection for creditors and some one you may love, and it provides an old-age fund 
for yourself when you might otherwise be dependent upon relatives or charity. Think it 
over. 



You may protect your credit and your home 
by insuring your life now in the old, old

OPINION AND COMMENT 



ENTER: 
THE ALUMNI 
LOYALTY FUND 



With this issue of The Review, the Alumni Loy- 
alty Fund, a brand new member of the forces that are 
working for the permanent up- 
building of the University, makes 
its bow to the world. The Review 
hails it with joy and bids it '"God- 
speed!" with complete confidence that as the years 
pass it will prove to be a source of great power finan- 
cially to the institution, and a source of inspiration 
both to it and to the alumni. Our optimism as to 
its success isn't merely an inference based on the suc- 
cess of similar funds at Brown, Cornell, Yale, and 
other colleges. (The Yale Alumni Fund amounts to 
nearly a million dollars.) We are aware that their 
alumni have more to give than ours. The real source 
of our optimism is our knowledge of the wonderful 
spirit of loyalty and deep desire to cooperate in the 
work of the University that has been shown by the 
alumni in recent years. This is the real wealth that 
the Loyalty Fund relies upon for its success, and out 
of which the suggestion grew. 

It was proposed by the Class of 1905, and the prop- 
osition backed by them with a gift of $1,000. It 
was endorsed by The Review, and by enthusiastic 
letters from alumni all over the State and country. 
The President endorsed it in his report, and the 
Trustees at their recent meeting, made it a fact by 
giving it their official approval. The plan, in simplest 
brevity, provides for a fund accumulating through 
yearly or occasional subscriptions from individ- 
ual alumni, through bequests, and class gifts, to be 
administered by a group of alumni trustees, the prin- 
cipal to be held intact, as an endowment, the interest 
to be used for general University improvement. In 
the letters from the alumni, printed in the Decem- 
ber Review, the main point stressed was that such 
a fund would give to the alumnus of small or mod- 
erate means the opportunity long desired of giving 
to the institution that trained him tangible evidence 
of his loyalty, of his desire to make a contribution, 
however small, to its increasing usefulness and great- 
ness. It gives this opportunity equally to the man 
of small means and the man of Iar^e means, and it 
gives the assurance that whatever the subscription, 
it will be put to a large and permanent service. 



The alumni are eager to have the University stead- 
ily grow into the truly great university that the State 
now requires. And although they know how diffi- 
cult and complex the task, in the face of all the cir- 
cumstances, is, they have faith that it can be done. 
They mean to help do it, not merely for the institu- 
tion's sake because they are alumni; but for the 
State's sake, because they are citizens. There are 
many ways practically to help, and so keep the desire 
to help from perishing as a vague, unrealized dream. 
Some of them come to us in our relation to the Uni- 
versity as citizens; some of them in our relation to 
her as her sons. The Alumni Loyalty Fund is clear- 
ly of this latter class. 

However, it will not be presented as a claim on the 
part of the University on the gratitude of her sons. 
It was designed rather to open the best way to those 
who are eager for the opportunity to perpetuate and 
to increase the privileges that they enjoyed. It ex- 
pects merely to make itself known and to go no fur- 
ther in the way of solicitation. It loves a cheerful 
giver, — thrills over him, in fact — but it isn't inter- 
ested in any other kind. 

The Treasurer of the University is authorized to 
receive subscriptions to the Fund, and The Review 
confidently believes that every man of the six thou- 
sand Carolina alumni will have some part in the cre- 
ation of what promises to be a great forward step 
taken in the life of the University.

Dr. Charles H. Herty, of the Department of 
Chemistry, who, in December, was paid the high and 
unusual honor of re-election to the 
presidency of the American Chem- 
ical Society, on January fifteenth, 
appeared before the Ways and Means Committee of 
the House of Representatives to testify on the dye- 
stuff situation. His position before the Committee, 
briefly, was that: 

I 1 ) We have an abundance of raw material and 
scientific skill, ami a home market for the products. 
( 2 I The necessity of economic utilization of by- 
products, so characteristic of this highly interlaced 
industry, and the difficulties involved in expanding

laboratory experiments into plant scale operations, 
will make operations inefficient during a period of 
six to eight years. 

(3) Therefore, a reasonable protection during 
this period is necessary to assure a union of sufficient 
capital and scientific skill to enable the industry to ex- 
pand sufficiently to supply the national need. 

(4) The firm establishment of this industry will 
release us from German monopoly and prevent a re- 
currence of such a crisis as confronts our mills today, 
while German competition after the war and the Sher- 
man anti-trust law will hold down prices and check 
monopolistic tendencies on the part of domestic man- 
ufacturers of dye-stuffs. 

Dr. Herty's testimony was clearly and pointedly 
put, and evidently made a great impression on the 
Committee. Dr. Herty has also been in consultation 
and correspondence with editors and leaders of public 
opinion in regard to this particular phase of the na- 
tional self-containedness of our industrial life 
throughout the past year. 

ODD 

Here is a strategic point of connection in the rela- 
tions between statesmanship, industry (particularly 

the industrial welfare of our own 
THE UNIVERSITY , ., ... 

section , and the umversitv, 
AND INDUSTRY , !' , . ,, " ' 

where the function oi the univer- 
sity is more obviously seen, though not more really 
present than is usual. The main arch of modern in- 
dustry rests on the laboratory. Germany first saw 
this, and fully seized upon it, and German suprem- 
acy resulted from a clearly conceived policy of re- 
placing through its universities "by intellectual forces 
the physical forces lost by war." The tremendous 
importance of building up the dye-stuff industry is 
now abundantly clear to every one. The wise solution 
of it is the joint task of the statesman, the business 
man, and the scientist. Here, as in Germany, and 
as in Japan and England where the struggle to build 
up an independent industry is also going on. it is the 
university that holds the key to the permanent solu- 
tion. 

ODD 

If you are a member of one of these classes, the 
one spot in the world for you to be on Tuesday, May 
1866 30, is Chapel Hill. Tuesday, May 
REUNIONS 1891 tlairtietli, is Alumni Day during 
1916 itfn the coming commencement, and 

TUESDAY i9Qg there are already convincing signs 
191 l that the increased interest recent- 
ly shown in it by the alumni 
is to take this year another long jump fomvard. The 
luncheon last year, contrary to all precedents and 



rules for such occasions, was a real joy. The student 
cabaret was good ; the luncheon was good ; the speeches 
were few and short, and consequently good, and the 
presence of the ladies was a happy change for the 
better. In addition to the student stunts at the lun- 
cheon, The Review would like to see shine once 
more the stars that glittered in other days, and reveal 
once more the genius that made them famous. Gov- 
ernor Francis Winston has signed up already as a 
head-liner on the alumni bill, and the Class of 1911 
expects to hold a heavy share in the honors. It will 
be a round-up of real talent, and any class with a 
Harry Lauder in it, or a Lew Dockstader. or — well, 
an Eva Tanquay (for the high-brows), should send 
in the name to the editor of The Review. 

One other important matter about the re-unions: 
if the secretary of any class is inactive, let the live 
men, or any live man, in the class seize the defunct 
office and not let the class fail to get together for 
want of leadership. Have every living man in the 
class in Chapel Hill at the re-union. Don't wait. 
Don't regret at commencement that you didn't get 
at it sooner. 

Do it now ! 

DDD 

The Review this month regretfully admits lack- 
ing the force and point that Dr. Wilson, its editor, 
would give it, were he here to look 
after it. A sudden severe attack of 
grip made it necessary for Dr. Wil- 
son to drop The Review and all of his other work, 
and seek, through a period of rest, to re-enforce his 
threatened strength and health. The Review, the 
University, and the people of the whole State, all of 
whom he has splendidly served, will keenly miss him, 
and will hold ready the royal welcome that impatient- 
ly awaits his return. 

How long you shout doesn't make so rmich differ- 
ence. Nor how loud. What counts is getting the 
right place to shout from. Alumni opinion is 
just like public opinion everywhere ; the most 
of the best of it is poured into private ears. 
And half the time ears don't open into anything. 
Now there's the letter column of The Alumni Re- 
view — empty. We've heard more ideas from the 
Alumni than we've seen in their Review. And bet- 
ter ones. What's the use of locking up an idea in 
somebody else's private vault '. Put it out where it 
can fructify. It isn't enough for a man's idea to 
have what Lowell calls "the masculine quality of 
fecundating other minds" ; it must have a chance to 
function.

The Late George W. Kidder's Collection of Southern Newspaper Files of the 60's Given to Library 



On January 15, announcement was made of a most 
important and distinctive addition to the University 
Library through the g( nerous gift of a large and /alt 
able collection of bound Southern newspapers of the 
periods of the Civil War and of Reconstruction. 
These papers were collected, bound, and preserved by 




Cl-UKGE \V. KIUDER 



Mr. Edward Kidder, of Wilmington, who, possessing 
to a high degree the historical instinct and interest 
characteristic of his family, realized thai they would 
be in time highly valuable. By him they were left 
to his son, Mr. George W. Kidder, who, a number of 
years ago, determined that they should he donated 
to the University where they would he of groat and 
increasing value to historical research in the State. 
They an- now presented by .Mrs. George W. Kidder in 
conformity with the wishes of Mr. Kidder. 

.Mr. Kidder was a native of Wilmington, who, af- 
ter service as a lieutenant in the Confederate army, 
I .Mine a meinlicr of the welhknown firm of Edward 
Kidder and Sons which conducted for many years an 
extensive lumber business, chiefly with South Ameri- 



ca and the West Indies. Xo firm in Xorth Carolina 
business history has enjoyed a finer record of honor, 
integrity, and efficiency. Mr. Kidder was also for 
many years treasurer of the Clarendon Water Works 
Company, one of the first public utility companies 
in the State. An early member of the Chamber of 
Commerce of Wilmington, he was always active and 
enthusiastic in its work. 

While always interested in public affairs. Mr. 
Kidder had no inclination for active participation in 
them other than as a public-spirited citizen. Socia- 
ble, genial, intellectually alert, a courteous gentle- 
man given to hospitality, he endeared himself to a 
host of acquaintances who were his friends, and im- 
pressed his personality deeply and permanently upon 
his community. 

The Library of the University is already rich in 
secondary works relating to the civil war and the col- 
lection should at no distant day become the most 
important in the South. This distinctive addition 
of source material, in the shape of newspapers for the 
period, which could not be duplicated, greatly in- 
creases the value of the collection, not only in interest, 
but as a store of priceless material for the historical 
investigator. It contains (1) complete files of Xorth 
Carolina papers, (2) incomplete files of Xorth Caro- 
lina papers, and (3) complete and incomplete files 
of Virginia and South Carolina papers. 

A list of the complete sets of North Carolina pap- 
ers follows:

CONTEST FOR AYCOCK MEMORIAL CUP 



Three Hundred and Twenty-Five High Schools are Competing in Fourth Annual Series 

of State Debating Union 



Not alone in the halls of Congress at Washington 
is the question of preparedness a topic of absorbing 
interest at the present time. In North Carolina high 
schools, from Murphy, Cherokee County, in the west, 
to Manteo, Dare County, in the east, two thousand 
young debaters, boys and girls, are at work on the 
query : "Resolved, That the United States should 
adopt the policy of greatly enlarging its Navy." On 
March 31st, twelve hundred of these debaters who 
will have been chosen as representatives in prelimi- 
nary contests in their respective schools, will meet in 
a State-wide debate on this query, the occasion being 
the annual triangular contests of the High School De- 
bating Union and the ultimate hope of each debating 
team being the Aycock Memorial Cup. They will 
speak in 325 communities, representing 325 high 
schools, in 94 counties of the State. 

In preparation for this forensic contest steady 
work is being done by the contestants. For their 
benefit during the fall the Bureau of Extension 
issued a 64-page bulletin, containing explanations of 
the query, outlines, articles on the affirmative and 
negative, and references to sources from which fur- 
ther material could be secured. This bulletin, issued 
in an edition of 3,000, has been in great demand 
since its publication. In addition, the North Caro- 
lina Senators and Representatives in Congress have 
supplied large quantities of material in answer to re- 
quests. Such organizations as the Navy League, of 
Washington, the League to Limit Armaments, of 
New York, and the World Peace Foundation, of Bos- 
ton, report that they have responded to an unpre- 
cedented number of requests for literature from this 
State. The Navy League has had upwards of 200 
such requests in less than a month. 
Organization 

The High School Debating Union is conducted un- 
der the auspices of the Bureau of Extension and the 
Dialectic and Philanthropic literary societies of the 
University. It was organized during the collegiate 
year of 1912-13 at the suggestion of C. E. Mcintosh, 
'11, now of Raleigh. Under the regulations of the 



Union every school of secondary nature in the State 
is eligible to enroll. Each school which enrolls is 
grouped with two others for a triangular debate, each 
school putting out a team on the affirmative and a 
team on the negative. The schools winning both de- 
bates send their teams to Chapel Hill to compete in 
the final contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup, the 
trophy which has been provided by the inter-col- 
legiate debaters of the University for the champion 
debating team. 

In 1913, 90 schools in 40 counties took part in the 
debates and the Pleasant Garden high school, of 
Guilford County, won the Cup. In 1914, 150 
schools in 64 counties participated and the Winston- 
Salem high school was the winner of the Cup. In 
1915, 250 schools in 90 counties enrolled for the 
debates and the Wilson high school won the award of 
the Cup. The present enrolment of 325 schools in 
94 counties indicates that the debates this year will 
be the most comprehensive in scope and far-reaching 
in results in the history of the Union. During the 
month of January alone more than 3,000 letters, 
bulletins, pamphlets, and reports bearing on the de- 
bates were sent to the contestants from the Extension 
offices in Chapel Hill. 

Enrolment by Counties 

Buncombe leads the State with 14 schools en- 
rolled. Robeson comes next with 12 and Mecklen- 
burg follows with 11. Guilford has 10 and Ala- 
mance 9. Johnston, Nash, Wake, and Durham have 
7 each. Gaston, Iredell, Union, Sampson, Rowan, 
and Warren have 6 each. Beaufort, Cleveland, 
Moore, Northampton, Orange, Rockingham, Scot- 
land, Vauce, Wayne, and Wilkes have 5 schools en- 
rolled each. Ashe, Bertie, Pitt, Alleghany, Bladen, 
Cabarrus, Chatham, Columbus, Duplin, Forsyth, 
Granville, Hyde, Richmond, and Wilson follow 
with 4 each. Anson, Caldwell, Carteret, Cataw- ' 
ba, Cumberland, Davidson, Franklin, Gates, Hali- 
fax, Harnett, Lincoln, Macon, McDowell, Mont- 
gomery, Surry, and Washington have 3 each. Alex- 
ander, Burke, Caswell, Cherokee, Craven, Dare,

Edgecombe, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Lee, 
Martin, Onslow, Perquimans, Person, Randolph, 
Stokes, Swain, Rutherford, and Transylvania have 2 
each. Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Davie, Green, 
Hertford, Jones, Lenoir, Pender, New Hanover,

Typical Triangles 

A few typical triangles which have been arranged 
are: Burlington, Chapel Hill and Graham; Winston- 
Salem, High Point, and Reidsville; Concord, Salis- 
bury, and Statesville; Hickory, Morganton, and Le- 
noir; Durham, Goldsboro, and Wilmington; Rich 
Square, Seaboard and Winton; Belhaven, Edenton 
and Hertford ; Cary, Holly Springs, and Wakelon ; 
Manteo, Poplar Branch, and South Mills; Atlantic, 
Beaufort, and Morehead City; Greenville, Kinston, 
and Wilson ; Harmony, Scotts, and Troutman ; 
Black Mountain, Fairview, and Swannanoa ; Biscoe, 
Norwood, and Troy; Elizabeth City, Newbern, and 
Washington ; Rocky Mount, Tarboro, and Weldon ; 
Henderson, Oxford, and Roanoke Rapids; Almond, 
Andrews, and Bryson City; Asheboro, Lexington, 
and Spencer ; Carthage, Monroe, and Pleasant Gar- 
den; Hendersonville, Marion, and Waynesville; Gas- 
tonia, Lincolnton, and Shelby; Hillsboro, Lillington, 
and Mebane; Laurinburg, Lnmberton, and Sanford ; 
Belmont, Dallas, and Lowell; Bessemer City, Cherry- 
ville, and King's Mountain. Some schools will de- 
bate in pairs instead of triangles, as: Charlotte and 
Raleigh ; Asheville and Greensboro ; Rockingham and 
Wadesboro; Chadbourn and Whiteville. 



The Finals 

The final contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup 
will be held in Chapel Hill on April 14th, this to be 
participated in by the winners of the triangular de- 
bates. Also, on April 14th the fourth annual inter- 
scholastic track meet and the first annual inter-scho- 
lastic tennis tournament will be held, the track meet 
taking place on Emerson Field. It is the plan of 
the committee to make of this series of contests the 
largest gathering at any central point of high school 
students and principals which has ever been held in 
the State. A full program of entertainment for all 
who come for the contests is being mapped out by 
the committee. The attendance is expected to reach 
500. 

Growth of Idea 

Since the idea of the Debating Union was evolved 
in Chapel Hill the growth of the general plan among 
other institutions and in other States has been rapid. 
Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Arkansas, Flor- 
ida, Tennessee, New Jersey, and California have ta- 
ken up various modifications of the general idea of a 
State-wide debating league with marked success. 
Advices from Berkeley, Cal., the seat of the State 
University of California, indicate that that institu- 
tion is this year conducting the first annual debating 
contest among the California high schools. A letter 
from J. Volney Lewis, '91, professor of Geology at 
Rutgers College, New Jersey, conveys the informa- 
tion that Rutgers College took up a modification of 
the North Carolina plan last year and is now conduct- 
ing the second State-wide contest among the New 
Jersey high schools. 



CAMPBELL CHOSEN COACH 



Former Harvard Half-back Signs Three-year Contract as Head Coach of Carolina Eleven 



The committee which has in charge the matter of 
securing coaches, consisting of Dr. Charles S. Man- 
gum, of the University faculty, Charles T. Woollen, 
graduate manager of athletics, and Albert L. Cox, 
of Raleigh, has secured as Carolina's head football 
coach for the next three years, Thomas J. Campbell, 
of Winchendon, Mass., an A. B. graduate of Har- 
vard in the class of 1912. Mr. Campbell comes with 
high recommendations. His record as a wearer of 
the crimson was a brilliant one and his experience in 
coaching since graduation has been successful to a 
marked degree. 

Mr. Campbell expects to arrive in Chapel Hill 
March 1st, to start work for the 1916 football season, 



and get acquainted with the students, members of the 
faculty, and alumni. He will be in Chapel Hill 
throughout the entire collegiate year for the next 
three years. It is thought that by reason of his pres- 
ence throughout the entire year, he will be able to 
render valuable assistance in many ways in the con- 
structive work of upbuilding Carolina athletics. 

Especially is it considered that the selection of the 
coach is fortunate in view of the fact that Carolina 
will have next fall the most comprehensive schedule 
in the history of the wearers of the blue and white, 
the schedule calling for games with Harvard and 
Princeton as new opponents. Mr. Campbell's ex- 
perience with the big northern teams will doubtless 



128 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



prove a valuable asset in building a system of strategy 
for Carolina and in divining the strategy of oppo- 
nents. 

Mr. Campbell's recommendations as a man and a 
leader of young men are fully equal to his recom- 
mendations as a player and coach. 

Nothing definite has been decided yet as to who 
the new coach's assistants will be. It is the plan to 
secure the assistant coaches from the alumni as far 
as possible. This is in line with the ultimate aim of 
those in charge, which is, as has been previously 
stated in The Review, to develop at Carolina to as 
complete an extent as is practicable, alnmni coach- 
ing. 

Concerning Mr. Campbell and his experience and 
ability, the Tar Heel of February 5th, has this to say: 

"Both as a member of the great Harvard football 
machines of 1910 and 1911, and as an assistant coach 
under Percy Haughton he has shown his marked abil- 
ity and thorough knowledge of the game. 

"It was in Harvard's great 0-0 game with Yale 
in 1911 that Campbell enrolled his name in the hall 
of gridiron fame. Of this game the New York Sun 
has the following to say: 'Campbell fan back punts 
with more decision and judgment than any other 
Harvard back, and had he had interference for these 
runs in a broken field, would have put through several 
lengthy jaunts.' During this and the preceding year 
he played left half back in great style. 

"However, not all of Campbell's knowledge of the 
game comes from merely having played with the Har- 
vard aggregation. After his graduation he coached at 
the Morristown School (N. J.) for two years. It 
was while he was there that Morristown had her bril- 
liant seasons. The headmaster at Morristown has 
the following to say of him: 'I consider that any col- 
lege would be remarkably fortunate to secure the ser- 
vices of Mr. Campbell, who coached our football team 
one or two seasons, but whom we lost, greatly to our 
regret, owing to his desire to become an assistant to 
Percy Haughton as coach of the Harvard team, which 
position he had filled with great success. Mr. Camp- 
bell is not only a good coach and a director of athletic 
sports, but is a man of sound moral character, unusual 
good sense and judgment and of great popularity 
among boys and young men. There was no man in the 
school more respected by the boys than Mr. Campbell. 
As a football coach we never -had a more effective and 
popular man. His coaching here attracted such at- 
tention that he was induced by Percy Haughton to be- 
come an assistant coach at Harvard.' 

"While a student at Harvard Mr. Campbell was 
immensely popular with his fellow students. Twice 



he was on the Student Council, and at one time he 
was secretary of his class. His average there was a C 
which corresponds to our three. All of his classmates 
speak of him in the highest terms. One of them wir- 
ed the following: 'Couldn't do better. Campbell is 
fine. Good player and good sort.' Graduate Mana- 
ger Moore of Harvard, who should be a very good 
judge of men, unreservedly recommends Campbell, 
and 'Peggy' Brown of the Crimson staff has the same 
thing to say. Every one who has ever come into con- 
tact with Mr. Campbell speaks very highly of him. 
He is sound to the core morally and always takes great 
interest in helping young men to succeed." 



GOOD BASEBALL PROSPECTS 

Seventy-five candidates answered the first call for 
'varsity baseball practice the first of February. 
Coach Doak started the squad immediately to work 
at hitting practice on the class field, awaiting the 
completion of the new Emerson Field. 

The beginning of the season finds eight baseball 
letter men again candidates for positions. These 
men are a good nucleus around which to start build- 
ing a great team, and a good look at the new material 
on hand gives bright promise of a winning team 
representing Carolina this spring. The old men to 
return are: Pitchers Williams and Currie; Catcher 
Hart ; infielders, Captain Patterson, Lewis, and Har- 
dison ; and outfielders, Bailey and Zollicoffer. 

The pitching staff is looked upon already as per- 
haps the strongest Carolina has had in some years. 
Williams with his speed and experience should lead 
all college pitchers in the State. Currie was last 
year's freshman find and he is expected to pitch 
premier ball again this spring. Cuthrell, who has 
had two years of college baseball at Wake Forest, 
is rated as one of the State's first class pitchers. He 
is a master of the curve ball and has excellent strike- 
out records. Plyler was the best pitcher in the class 
league a year ago and is expected to strengthen the 
staff of the 'varsity. Coleman, Kinlaw, and Hill 
are again candidates for pitcher. There are many 
new men, too, who are expected to show pitching 
ability, among them being, Llewellyn of Oak Pidge 
and Powell of Randolph-Macon Academy. 

Hart, who caught Aycock in 1913, is again candi- 
date for catcher. Angel, who graduated in 1914, 
is back taking law and is making a strong bid for 
this position. As a member of the Treasury team in 
the Capital City League at Washington, D. O, he 
led the league in batting last year. Bennett, of 
Mercersburg Academy, is another strong man for

catcher. He hits hard. Scales, of New Bern, and 
others will make strong bids for catcher. 

Many excellent infielders have appeared on the 
field. Captain Patterson will remain at second base. 
Hardison, first base, and Lewis, third' base, are 
again candidates for the 1916 job. Sheek and Mas- 
sey are excellent men and may find positions on the 
infield by means of their excellent slugging qualities. 
Royster, Boren, Baker, Watkins, Allen, and numer- 
ous others will run any man hard for infield posi- 
tions. 

Bailey and Zollicoffer are again found in the 
outer garden and are very likely to hold their own. 
Other likely men for the outfield are Barnes, Pippin, 
Jeanette, Thomas, Wood, Craig and Folger. 

From early appearances it seems that Carolina 
should have the best hitting team in the State. The 
prospects are good and Carolina should show ex- 
cellent results when the playing season begins. 



HIGH SCHOOL CONTESTS ANNOUNCED 

Announcement has been made by the University 
committee of athletic contests for North Carolina 
high schools which will be held at the University in 
the spring of 1916. These contests include the first 
annual inter-scholastic tennis tournament, the fourth 
annual inter-scholastic track meet, and the third an- 
nual championship contest in baseball. The com- 
mittee having charge of the contests consists of N. 
W. Walker, E. R. Rankin, C. E. Ervin, McDaniel 
Lewis, Hazel Patterson and W. J. Capehart. The 
tennis tournament and track meet will be held on 
April 14th, the same date on which the final contest 
of the High School Debating Union will be held. The 
date for the final game in the baseball championship 
series is yet to be determined. All principals, teach- 
ers, and students coming to Chapel Hill for the con- 
tests will be entertained free of cost. The track meet 
and the deciding game in baseball will take place on 
Emerson Field. 



BASKETBALL RESULTS 

The basketball team played its first game after the 
examination period with Marvville College, of Ten- 
nessee, on the night of Feb. 3. The resulting score 
was 39 to 24. Carolina took the lead from the first 
and maintained it throughout the entire game, Long 
and Captain Johnson starring for Carolina. 

The team took a trip through Virginia Feb. 7-12, 
which proved rather disappointing from the point of 
view of games won. They met their first defeat in 
Richmond at the hands of Virginia. The game was 
close throughout, and at the end of the first half the 



score stood 15-15. Virginia forged ahead in the sec- 
ond half, chiefly through the brilliant playing of 
Strickling. Tandy played a star game at center until 
he was forced to leave the game because of four per- 
sonal fouls. Fouls were numerous on both sides 
throughout the game. 

From Richmond the team went to Roanoke where 
they were defeated by the strong quint of the V. P. 
I., 44-27. The next night, Feb. 9, Roanoke College 
gave them a severe walloping, with a resulting s^ore 
of 45 to 13. Washington and Lee won by the s?ore 
of 25 to 18 in Lexington on Friday night, while on 
Saturday night, Feb. 12, Carolina managed to nose 
out a victory over the V. M. I., playing extra time 
to do so — score 25 to 23. On Feb. 16, Carolina de- 
feated the Davidson College team at Chapel Hill 
by the score of 20 to 14. 



FRATERNITY HISTORY 

In the February number of the University Maga- 
zine, Mr. H. V. Johnson contributes an article en- 
titled, ''A Sketch of the Fraternities of the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina (1851-1915)." In this ar- 
ticle the history of fraternities in the University is 
traced from the time when Delta Kappa Epsilon 
established its chapter in this institution, April 5, 
1851, to the present day. 

Excerpts dealing with the post-bellum period of 
fraternity history in the University are herewith 
reproduced from this article: 

The Lambda chapter of Phi Kappa Sigma was 
reinstated on April 26, 1877. J. C. Powell, '77, 
was the prime spirit in the undertaking. Among 
the early initiates were the following: J. C. Powell, 
'77, Wm. B. Phillips, '77, J. M. Baker, '77, Richard

was established in 1879. The original members 
were as follows: J. C. Winston, '79, T. D. Stokes, 
'79, Donnell Gilliam, '80, Thomas Radcliffe, '81, 
R. P. Gray, '81, Julian Wood, '81, W. T. Dortch, 
'81, Bartlett Shipp, '81. 

The LTpsilon chapter of Kappa Alpha owes its 
origin to J. R. Nicholls, and J. U. Hill. They with 
M. C. Millender and G. A. Mebane obtained a 
charter, November 25, 1881. Next joined John L. 
Borden, and J. S. Mann in 18S2. Other early 
initiates were G. W. Carrington. '82, R. T. Grissom,

CLASSES PLAN REUNIONS 

The past two commencements of the University 
have been characterized for one thing by the stimu- 
lus which has been given the matter of class reunions. 
At the commencement of 1914, the Class of 1909, 
on its five-year reunion, and the Class of 1913, on its 
one-year return, came back in large numbers and 
broke the ground for future attempts. At the com- 
mencement of 1915, the Class of 1905 came back 
twenty-five strong and showed the present day Uni- 
versity some samples of their old time loyalty. They 
gave to the University a check for $1000 and they 
were present in a body at all of the commencement 
exercises. 

The classes which will hold reunions at the ap- 
proaching commencement are 1866, 1891, 1896, 
1906, 1911 and 1915, the fifty, twenty-five, twenty, 
ten, five and one-year classes respectively. Plans 
are being made by the members of these classes 
to return in large numbers for their respective re- 
unions which will be held on Alumni Day, Tuesday, 
May 30th. The Class of 1911 has had a committee 
actively at work since last summer in the effect 
to bring back all members of the class for the biggest 
five-year reunion in the history of the college. A 
breezy bulletin is now being prepared by Secretary 
I. C. Moser, of Burlington. Tents have been se- 
cured by the committee, which will be pitched on 
the University campus for the use of all members 
of the class. Nothing is being left undone. Nine- 
teen-Eleven plans to revive its old time pep and col- 
lege spirit and come together for a real good time. 

The Class of 1915, under the leadership of Presi- 
dent R. G. Fitzgerald, of Hillsboro, and Secretary 
B. L. Field, of Oxford, plans to break the record 
for one-year reunions. This Class is planning to 
have at least seventy-five men present to answer the 
roll call on Alumni Day. The Class of 1906 has a 
large job ahead of it when it attempts to match or 
surpass the ten-year reunion of the Class of 1905, 
held last commencement, but under the leadership of 
Captain John A. Parker, Secretary, of Charlotte, it 
is courageously undertaking to break all previous 
records for the decade return. F. B. Rankin, of 
Rutherfordton, Secretary of the Class of 1901, is 
planning to be present with a full mustering of the 
fifteen-year class. Mayor Benj. S. Skinner, of Dur- 
ham, W. H. Swift, of Greensboro, and others of '01 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

have already laid out their plans to be present on the 
Alumni Day occasion. 

From the Class of 1896, Col. E. W. Blair, Collec- 
tor of Internal Revenue of Minnesota, stationed at 
St. Paul, has stated that he will be present for the 
twenty-year convening of his class on the Hill. Many 
others, some located close at home and some still fur- 
ther away than St. Paul, have indicated their plan 
of being present to keep Colonel Blair company. The 
Class of 1891, beginning with Dr. Charles Mangum, 
of the University faculty, is expected to have a large 
delegation present for its quarter-century reunion. 
The Class of 1866 is expected to lend to the reunion 
exercises the heartening encouragement of the pres- 
ence of the old boys. Among other living members 
of this Class may be mentioned General Julian S. 
Carr, of Durham, President of the General Alumni 
Association of the University, W. R. Webb, head of 
the Webb School, Bell Buckle, Term., and A. Ferdi- 
nand Johnson, of Clinton. 



DR. RICHARD HENRY WHITEHEAD 

Dr. Richard Henry Whitehead, professor of anat- 
omy and dean of the medical department in the Uni- 
versity from 1890 to 1905, died February 6th at 
Charlottesville, Va. At the time of his death which 
was occasioned by an attack of pneumonia, he was 
dean of the medical department of the University of 
Virginia. 

Dr. Whitehead was born in Salisbury, July 27, 
1865, and was thus in his fifty-first year. He re- 
ceived the A. B. degree from Wake Forest College in 
1886 and the M. D. degree from the University of 
Virginia in 1887. Coming to Chapel Hill in 1890 
he remained here continuously until 1905. He es- 
tablished the medical department of the University 
on a firm foundation and was the prime mover in its 
development to the point where it became one of the 
leading schools of its kind in the country. Going to 
Virginia in 1905, he at once took rank as one of the 
leaders in the faculty of that institution. As dean of 
Virginia's medical school, he performed invaluable 
service until the time of his death. In 1910 the Uni- 
versity conferred upon him the degree of LL. D. 

Upon hearing of his death the faculty of the Uni- 
versity passed the following resolutions: 

"The members of the faculty of the University of 
North Carolina learn, with deep sorrow, of the death 
of Richard Henry Whitehead, Dean of its Medical 
School, 1890-1905, and for the past ten years, Dean 
of the Medical School of the University of Virginia, 
and desire to place on record, in their Journal, their 



appreciation of him as a man, a scholar, a teacher, 
and a dear friend. 

"As a man, he was gentle, upright, conscientious, 
and lovable ; of broad views and the highest ideals. As 
a scholar, his rare intellectual gifts, extensive reading 
and unwearying industry, won for him distinction in 
the field of medical science, and he attained remark- 
able success in building up and directing the two 
medical schools of which he was the head. 

"His personality was reflected in his teaching. 
Simple in manner and approachable, yet insisting on 
the highest standards of scholarship and character, he 
stimulated those he taught to their greatest efforts. 
His lectures were characterized by clearness of pre- 
sentation, insight, fullness of knowledge and firm 
grasp of the subject. 

"His loss, at the time of his greatest usefulness, 
will be deeply felt by his many friends and associates 
in the faculty, who were tenderly drawn to him by 
his many endearing qualities. 

"For the faculty : 
"WM. CAIN, 

"CHARLES S. MANGUM, 
"CHARLES L. RAPER." 



THE MILLER MEETINGS 

A series of very effective meetings was conducted 
by the Y. M. C. A. Feb. 4th, 5th, and 6th known as 
the Miller Meetings. Mr. Francis P. Miller, a mem- 
ber of the International Committee of the Y. M. C. 
A. made the addresses of the campaign in a very 
forceful and convincing manner. Being a young col- 
lege man himself, a graduate of Washington and Lee 
University, athlete and scholar, he was able to get in 
immediate and sympathetic touch with the student 
body. 

The emphasis of the meetings was upon quiet, seri- 
ous decisions for Christian life and much time was 
devoted to personal interviews and small group meet- 
ings. The most representative men at Carolina dis- 
cussed individually with Mr. Miller their own per- 
sonal problems and those of the campus. 

Friday night, Feb. 4th, the address was upon the 
indifferent and apathetic Christian who shirked his 
responsibility for service. Saturday was devoted en- 
tirely to interviews and small group meetings. Sun- 
day morning Mr. Miller spoke on "Selfishness and 
Sin," while Sunday night his appeal was to the men 
to face the facts of Christian life, and to make de- 
finite decisions for Christ. 

Mr. Miller's addresses, interviews and personal in- 
fluence added new stimulus to the moral forces at 
Carolina and aroused a new interest in moral and

the Y. M. C. A. and town churches during the spring. 
Here at the same time to assist Mr. Miller in group 
meetings and interviews, held in the dormitory rooms 
and fraternity halls, were Mr. Ed. S. King, General 
Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. at the University of 
South Carolina, Mr. Roy John, Secretary at Clemson 
College, S. C, and Mr. 0. B. Hinnant, Assistant Sec-

Lectures on Art and Literature, April 19, 20, and 
21, by Bliss Perry, Lowell Professor of Literature at 
Harvard University. 



1908 STATISTICS 

The eighth annual bulletin of the Class of 1908 
issued recently by Secretary Jas. A. Gray, Jr., of 
Winston-Salem, furnishes some interesting statistics 
concerning the fifty-five living graduates of this class. 

Twenty-four members after graduation looked as- 
kance at France's decreasing population, married, 
and are now fathers of an aggregate of 25 children. 
North Carolina furnished 17 brides and Georgia, 
Massachusetts, Missippi, Montana, New York, Penn- 
sylvania, and Virginia provided one bride each. 
Thirty-nine members live in North Carolina, 4 in 
Virginia, 3 in Alabama, 2 in Texas, 2 in Pennsyl- 
vania. Georgia, District of Columbia, Montana, 
West Virginia, and Canada claim one man each. Six- 
teen members are teachers and 11 are lawyers. Four 
engage in manufacturing and 4 in insurance. Three 
are engineers and three are salesmen. Two are stu- 
dents and the same number are chemists, bankers, and 
agriculturists. The vocations of architecture, broker- 
age, journalism, merchandising, medicine, and the 
ministry have one member each. Since the bulletin 
was issued, one member has become a judge of the 
N. C. Superior Court, W. P. Stacy, who held his 
first court in Halifax early in January. 



LECTURE ENGAGEMENTS 

Indications are that a large number of alumni will 
avail themselves of the opporunity of returning to 
the "Hill" for some of the lectures to be delivered 
before the University community this Spring. The 
speakers are all noted men who will be heard with 
keen interest. The dates for the engagements fol- 
low: 

The McNair Lectures, March 3, 4, and 5, by 
Frederick J. E. Woodbridge, Dean of the Graduate 
School of Columbia University. 

Weil Lectures on American Citizenship, March 
29, 30, and 31, by George Brinson McClellan, former 
Mayor of New York, now professor of political 
science in Princeton University. 

University Exchange Lectures, April 6 and 7, by 
Patterson Wardlaw, Dean of the School of Educa- 
tion of the University of South Carolina. 



NEW YORK NOTES 

The North Carolina Society Bulletin of New 
York of issue January 14th, has the following notes 
of interest to alumni : 

Ralph H. Graves is now city editor of The New 
York Times. He succeeds the late Arthur Greaves. 

Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr., son of Bishop Cheshire 
and a friend of many members of the Society passed 
through the city twice in December, on his way to 
and from Bermuda with his bride. She was Miss 
Ida Rogerson of Edenton. 

The Haywood brothers, Alfred W., Jr., and T. 
Holt, spent Christmas in North Carolina. T. Holt 
Haywood went to Winston-Salem, Charlotte and Haw 
River in rapid rotation, while Alfred W. Haywood, 
Jr., took in Haw River, Raleigh and Chapel Hill. 
They both had some good hunting. 

Thomas Hill of Hillsboro, who holds under lease 
several plots covered by tennis courts, has converted 
these plots into ice fields. There is no artificial ice- 
making plant to do the freezing. Mr. Hill just 
waits for a cold snap ; when it comes he installs 
cashiers and ticket-takers at the gates of his various 
ice-fields and lets the public pay 25 cents a head to 
come in and skate. And they come in great crowds. 
One of the reservations is at West End Avenue and 
96th Street; and the other is at Fifth Avenue and 
90 th Street. 



COACH TRENCHARD LEAVES 

Coach Thomas G. Trenchard, for the past three 
years at the helm of Carolina athletics, left the 
"Hill" early in February after obtaining his license 
to practice law at the Supreme Court examination. 
He has engaged in the timber and real estate business 
in South Carolina with headquarters at Columbia. 
During Coach Trenchard's stay on the Hill, Car- 
olina's football standing steadily improved. The 
good wishes of students and alumni follow him in 
his work. 



FULLER SISTERS PLEASE 

The Fuller Sisters, Misses Dorothy, Rosalind, and 
Cynthia, of Dorset, England, gave a representation 
of English and Scottish ballads in Gerrard Hall, 
February 1st, in such a way as to draw after each 
number favorable comment and prolonged applause. 

The entertainment was unlike anything heard in 
Chapel Hill recently. The program, which consisted 
of British folk songs, was divided into several sec- 
tions, children's action songs, songs of battle, ro-

mances, songs of lovers, home and country. The bal- 
lads were sympathetically interpreted by the three 
singers, all of whom had unusually pleasing voices. 
Miss Cynthia Fuller furnished accompaniments to all 
the songs on an Irish harp. 

The execution of the ballads was so realistic that 
one could almost fancy oneself an Englishman of the 
sixteenth century listening in some baronial hall to a 
minstrel's martial strain or tale of love. 



TWENTY-FOUR LAW STUDENTS RECEIVE 
LICENSE 

Eighteen students from the University Law School 
received license to practice in North Carolina at the

LATIN AMERICAN CLUB ORGANIZED 

A Latin-American Club was organized in the Uni- 
versity recently, its purpose being to study Latin- 
American peoples, countries, and commerce. Member- 
ship in the club is composed of students and members 
of the faculty. Officers are : President, D. E. Eagle ; 
Secretary, C. C. Miller ; Advisor, W. W. Pierson, Jr., 
instructor in History. Meetings are held every two 
weeks and papers are presented on various aspects of 
South American life, geography, and trade. Several 
noted authorities on South American problems and 
opportunities have been invited to address the club 
and the student body during the Spring. 



THE 1916 YACKETY YACK 

Editor-in-chief F. O. Clarkson and business mana- 
gers G. B. Edgerton and H. B. Hester report that 
work on the Yackety Yack for 1916 is nearing com- 
pletion. Material will be sent to the printers March 
1st and the book will be ready for distribution May 
1st. Quite a bit of space is this year given to the 



artistic side of the annual. Among the artists are 
Russell Henderson, of Westerville, Ohio; E. J. Lil- 
ly, Jr., of Asheville; Jacques Busbee, of Raleigh; 
P. L. Burnette and H. H. Crawford, of the Univer- 
sity. The annual is this year dedicated to Dr. F. P. 
Venable, of the University faculty. 

The county and high school clubs will again ap- 
pear in the book after an absence of two years. Fif- 
teen pages are given over to the humor department, 
the men having charge of this being E. S. Hartshorn 
and W. C. Rymer. Among the contributors of poems 
are: Miss Eleanor Watson, R. B. House, Moses 
Rountree, and A. M. Lindau. The printing and 
binding will be done by the Edwards & Broughton 
Co., Raleigh. 



CAROLINA DEBATES HOPKINS AND VIRGINIA 

Carolina will this Spring continue her arrange- 
ment of the past three years for a triangular debate 
with Johns Hopkins University and the University 
of Virginia. The query to be discussed is: "Re- 
solved, That our federal government should compel 
every able-bodied male citizen between the ages of

GARRETT PROMOTED 

His many Carolina friends will be interested to 
learn that C. C. Garrett, of the Class of 1910, has 
been promoted from the superintendency of the 
Huntington, W. Va., office to the superintendency of 
the Wheeling, W. Va., office of the Bradstreet Com- 
pany. Mr. Garrett was one of Carolina's most popu- 
lar football players during his college days and was 
captain of the 1909 team. 



SHALL '86 HAVE A REUNION? 

A letter was received recently by The Review 
from W. S. Dunston, '86, of Birmingham, Ala- 
bama, in reference to a 30-year reunion of the Class 
of 1886 at the approaching commencement. The 
letter is published herewith and The Review sug- 
gests that all members of '86 get in touch with Mr. 
Dunston regarding the reunion. Mr. Dunston's sug- 
gestion receives The Review's hearty support. 

"I will greatly appreciate it if you can give me 
the present address of all members graduating in 
the Class of 1886. I believe it will be possible by a 
series of letters from one member to another to have a 
reunion there next June, with every living member 
present. At any rate two of us here, Mr. Long 
and I, are willing to endeavor to- accomplish this 
feat." 



EXTENSION SERIES NO. 15 APPEARS 

Extension Series No. 15 entitled "Third Road 
Institute" was issued by the Bureau of Extension 
of the University February 1st. This bulletin con- 
tains a complete program of the third road institute 
of North Carolina held in Chapel Hill February 
7-12. In addition it contains articles on good roads 
by Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt and others, and a number 
of cuts of University buildings and scenes. 



GLEE CLUB TAKES EASTERN TRIP 

The University Glee Club is now busily preparing 
a program for the spring concerts which begin Feb. 
28. An entirely new program is being worked up, 



and according to Preston Epps, director, the num- 
bers chosen for the spring concerts are much better 
than those used in the fall. 

The Glee Club expects to leave on the morning of 
Feb. 28 for Goldsboro, where it will give its initial 
performance that night. On the succeeding days the 
club will appear in the following places: Kinston, 
Feb. 29 ; Newbern, March 1 ; Washington, March 2 ; 
Greenville, March 3 ; Raleigh, March 4. The custom 
was reversed this year — the western trip being taken 
in the fall and the eastern trip in the spring. 



TOOK HIGHEST RANK 

Ernest G. Mick, of the University Law Class, won 
the prize offered by Chief Justice Walter Clark to 
the student who would take the highest rank in the 
recent Supreme Court examination for license to 
practice law in North Carolina. The prize consisted 
of fifteen volumes of "Modern American Law." 
Richard H. Shuford, also of the University Law 
Class, took second rank. 



BLACKSTOCK SUPERINTENDENT

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 



SOME RECENT BOOKS ON GEOLOGY BY ALUMNI 

Frequently practical men. of affairs call in question 
the value of what, in academic circles, is popularly 
styled "research." Because immediate results are 
not always forthcoming the labor and money spent 
upon investigations in the laboratories are considered 
of slight importance. 

In an academic community, it is entirely unneces- 
sary to argue the falsity of this assumption. And, 
fortunately, in a state like North Carolina, it is be- 
coming less and less necessary to point out its falsity, 
as it is daily being demonstrated that the discovery 
in the laboratory may bear a direct relation to the 
yield of corn in the crib or the length of the fiber 
in the cotton boll. 

That this change in point of view has been brought 
about in North Carolina, is due in part to the im- 
provement in agriculture resulting from soil inves- 
tigations and surveys made in this and other parts 
of the country by North Carolina students trained in 
the laboratories of the University. Since the year 
1900 the University has sent sixty of its graduates 
into state and national soil bureaus and today it has 
more men engaged in the scientific investigation of 
soils than any other university in the country. North 
Carolina's profit in this case has been unusually great, 
as the State has been able to put its own sons to work 
on the study of home soils both through its depart- 
ment of agriculture and through the Federal Bureau 
of Soils. 

The booklet named below is another case in point. 
R. B. Hardison, '07, of Anson county, and R. C. 



Jurney, '13, of Forsyth, trained in the University 
laboratories and assigned to the United States and 
North Carolina Departments of Agriculture, respec- 
tively, under the general supervision of W. E. Hearn, 
'00, of Orange, have prepared a complete thorough- 
going analysis of Rowan county soils. The survey 
shows the locations of the various soils of the county 
and the kinds of crops which can be grown to best 
profit upon them. The study is scientific and com- 
plete and the Rowan farmer who wishes to get the 
best results from his labor should have a copy of the 
publication. Incidentally it contains much of the 
history of the county and would serve as an excellent 
handbook in the study of local geography. 



Charles H. White, '94, professor of mining and 
metallurgy in Harvard University and in the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology, has recently pub- 
lished "Methods in Metallurgical Analysis," pp. 365, 
with 106 illustrations. New York: D. Van Nos- 
trand Company, $2.50 net. 1915. 

"In this volume are brought together those methods 
in metallurgical analysis which, owing to their fit- 
ness, seem to have been most generally adopted in 
American metallurgical laboratories. The proce- 
dures are given for the sake of clearness in as direct 
statement as possible, without regard to literary style. 

"Explanatory notes have been introduced where 
they are most needed by the beginner, but are so 
subdued as not to annoy the experienced reader who 
may wish to omit them." 

For the benefit of students who have had adequate 
preparation in qualitative analysis the various oper- 
ations in both gravimetric and volumetric analysis 
are described in detail at the beginning of the book, 
and the methods that such students would ordinarily 
take up first are given in greater detail than those 
which are usually assigned after considerable ex- 
perience has been gained. For more details than 
it is possible to give in a work of this kind, excellent 
references are given in foot notes, and a bibliography 
is added. 



J. V. Lewis, '91, professor of geology and miner- 
alogy in Rutgers College, has recently brought out a 
second edition of his very useful "Determinative 
Mineralogy," pp. 155. New York: John Wiley and 
Sons. 

The tables make a wider use than is usual of the 
more easily determined characters, and may be used 
for the rapid determination of minerals by means 
of their physical properties, even in the absence of 
crystals.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



"Several more delicate tests that have been intro- 
duced in both the text and the tables will aid in the 
detection of the minute quantities of an element or 
in making distinctions that are usually difficult and 
unsatisfactory. Among the former may be mention- 
ed the purple of Cassius test for gold, the reduction 
of tungsten compounds on aluminum, and the ruby 
bead for copper and tin. The distinction of ara- 
gonite from calcite by means of cobalt nitrate solu- 
tion is an example of the latter type, while the beau- 
tiful dimethylglyoxime test for nickel falls into both 
categories, since it serves not only for the recognition 
of nickel compounds in the presence of cobalt, but 
also for the detection of minute traces of nickel. The 
reduction of cassiterite through the action of nascent 
hydrogen is also a simple and thoroughly conclusive 
test for a mineral that often proves troublesome to 
the beginner." 

This book is designed for the use of students in 
determinative mineralogy and also to meet the needs 
of the geologist and the mining engineer. 



the Bureau of Soils, and by most of the field parties 
of the Soil Survey. 



David E. Shearer, '07, has issued a valuable book 
on "Electricity in Coal Mining," pp. 84, with 28 
illustrations. New York: McGraw-Hill Company. 
$1.50. 

This is a small treatise covering in a general way 
the many phases of electrical engineering as applied 
to coal mining. Such a book must be of great use to 
the investor, or to the operator, in outlining methods 
of procedure, "and to the operating engineer in trac- 
ing the foundations upon which an electrical power 
plant may be established and operated in the most 
efficient manner." The several papers that go to 
make up the book were published in Coal Age, and 
had undergone revision when the author put them in 
book form. 



Professor Collier Cobb's "Common Eocks and 
Rock Minerals" has nearly exhausted its second edi- 
tion, issued only six months after the first edition. 
The book is now used in nearly all the colleges of 
this country and of Canada, in departments of high- 
way engineering, forestry, and soils, as well as in 
geology and mineralogy. 

Kraus, the eminent mineralogist of the University 
of Michigan, has reviewed the book in Zeitschrift 
fur Mineralogie, and uses it in his own laboratory. 
Blanchard uses it at Columbia University with his 
graduate students in highway engineering. Perm 
State College uses it in its forestry department and 
with its classes in soil investigation. It is in use 
by the secretary of the Committee on Correlation of 



I. F. LEWIS PROFESSOR OF BIOLOGY 

Of Ivey Foreman Lewis, new Miller professor of 
biology and agriculture at the University of Vir- 
ginia, the Alumni Bulletin of the University of Vir- 
ginia, gives the following sketch: 

He received the degrees of bachelor of arts in 
1902 and of master of science in 1903 from the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina, and doctor of philosophy 
from the Johns Hopkins University in 1908. While 
at Johns Hopkins he was successively scholar, fellow, 
and Bruce fellow in biology. After leaving Johns 
Hopkins, he spent one semester in study at the Bonn 
University in Germany, and for two months occupied 
the Smithsonian table at the Stazione Zoologica at 
Naples. 

During the summers he has been at various times 
a scientific assistant and investigator for the Bureau 
of Fisheries, and instructor in botany at the Marine 
Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Mass. He has 
also studied at the Laboratory of the Brooklyn Insti- 
tute at Cold Spring Harbor, L. I., and at the Cin- 
chona Station in Jamaica. 

In 1905, Dr. Lewis was appointed acting professor 
of biology at Randolph-Macon College, and was ap- 
pointed professor at the same institution in 1907, 
with one year's leave of absence. In 1912, he was ap- 
pointed lecturer in protistology at the Johns Hopkins 
University, but resigned without serving in order to 
accept an assistant professorship in the University of 
Wisconsin. He stayed at Wisconsin for two years 
and was then called to the University of Missouri as 
professor of Botany. He comes to Virginia from 
Missouri. 

Professor Lewis's published papers include the 
following: "The Life History of Griffithsia Borne- 
tiana;" "Notes on the Development of Phytolacca 
decandra ;" "Notes on the Morphology of Coleochaete 
Nitellarum;" "Periodicity in Dictyota at Naples;" 
"Alternation of Generations in Certain Florideae;" 
"The Seasonal Life Cycle of Some Red Algae at 
Woods Hole," and "Chlorochromonas minuta, a new 
Flagellate from Wisconsin." 

Professor Lewis is a member of the Botanical So- 
ciety of America, and fellow of the American Asso- 
ciation for the Advancement of Science. In 1909 
he received the Walker prize from the Boston Society 
of Natural History. 



Rev. H. H. Covington, pastor of St. Paul's church,

THAT 1911 REUNION 

The Class of 1911 is riding on the crest of the wave of 
Preparedness now sweeping the country. Even as early as 
last summer word was sent out to its members throughout 
the United States and its Dependencies that the safety, and 
even existence, of that old 1911 spirit depended upon the 
mobilization of the whole class at Chapel Hill this coming 
Commencement. 

From the enthusiastic replies received from all points, 
including the Philippine Islands, the largest crowd that ever 
flocked back to Chapel Hill for a class reunion will be there 
for the grand ensemble Monday night, — concluding the biggest 
night 1911 ever had. 

Active preparation for a reunion that will be in keeping 
both with the reputation of 1911 for doing things and the 
broad program of achievement adopted and being carried out 
by the University, has been in progress for months. The 
Reunion Committee appointed by Archie Dees met first dur- 
ing the summer of 1914. In July, 1915, this committee, re- 
enforced and enthusiastic, met at Chapel Hill and began 
planning definitely to the end that all paraphernalia and ac- 
commodations necessary to guarantee to every one the most 
fun, were on hand. At the same time to investigate the latest 
methods of defense being used in Europe so that we could be 
safe and secure from anything formal or stereotyped which 
might attempt to break in. 

At a full and enthusiastic meeting of the committee held in 
Charlotte on January 7th the plans heretofore worked out 
were discussed and perfected — some new and cracking good 
ideas developed. It can be safely said that the biggest time 
and most fun any 1911 man ever had at Chapel Hill will be 
there waiting for him at the tent headquarters on Monday 
night of this next Commencement. Just seeing everybody 
again — to say nothing of the University — will be worth a trip, 
although you may have to come as far as from the Philippines, 
as will Rube Oliver and G. W. Thompson. Even if Railroad 
Smith does not turn up among the crew on the Appam, we 
can count on his being there when the jollification begins. 

The chief worry of the committee though at present is the 
entertainment of the wives and children. Those having any 
other solution than Cy Thompson's for this problem, submit 
same at once. 

Between now and Commencement notices and other news 
items concerning 1911's plans will be published in the Review 
or sent direct to you. Keep on the lookout for the latest. 
If your address has recently changed, — because of Leap Year 
or for any other reason, or if you have not received any dope 
heretofore, — notify Geo. Graham, care of the Asheville Citi- 
zen, Asheville, N. C., at once. 

Don't forget to talk and write about the Reunion. Send
