Five years will soon have passed since our class — 100 strong — left the quiet campus quarters for 
active service. These men and every man — and woman — ever enrolled is urged to answer the roll call 
on the night of May 29th at the "Smoker" on the old camping ground. (The ladies will not be required 
to smoke.) This will be a time of goodfellowship. We shall note the interesting changes that have 
taken place here at Carolina, and we shall take stock of ourselves and our fellows. We shall find that 
the things that have always happened to men are taking place among our own ranks. 

To our fortieth year reunion which may take place in June, 1951. May be you wonder whether or 
not you will come back then — at about age 65 perhaps — and join the little group that will rally around 
the 1911 standard at that time. It would be interesting to know just what changes thirty-five more 
years will bring. 


Based en over fifty years of reliable statistics indicates that, in so far as the men who finished with 
the class do not prove to be exceptional, our secretary will have to report that of these 100 men: 36 have 
died, 1 is enormously rich, 4 are very wealthy, 5 are still active producers, 54 are wholly or partially 
dependent upon their every-day labor, younger relatives, or their communities for the ordinary neces- 
sities of life. A small number in this majority class will not have the price of a round-trip air-jitney 
ticket to enable them to reunite with the "old boys of 1911." 

One great system of thrift which will help every man to come back strong is Life Insurance. An 
endowment policy maturing about this time will protect your credit and your home meantime and will 
provide an available fund and "easy chair" for you in the days of 1951. 

Today the opportunity is open to you. Let us help you to avail yourself of its lasting and com- 
forting benefits — now. See or write the old, old

APRIL, 1916 

Number 7 


Through the will of Mrs. Thomas Kenan, the 
University has just come into possession of a por- 
THOMAS S trait of one of her best loved sons, 
KEN4N Colonel Thomas S. Kenan, of the 

class of 1857. The portrait, an ex- 
cellent example of portraiture, by Garl Brown, has 
been hung in the main reading room of the Uni- 
versity Library. 

Few men had so active and intimate a part in 
the developemei.t of the University during the past 
three decades as Colonel Kenan. He was a Trustee 
for nearly thirty years, and President of the General 
Alumni Association for twenty. He was one of the 
foremost in a large group of distinguished men 
whose love for the University was a life passion, 
and whose desire to serve her knew no bounds. 

Their thought of making her name great among 
the universities of the country was partly due to 
their loyalty to her as their Alma Mater, but it 
was chiefly the larger loyalty of statesmanlike pa- 
triotism. Before the State realized the fundamental 
need of a State University, when opposition to such 
a unifying institution was fierce and active, and the 
resources of the State were so meagre that adequate 
public support was impossible, there was always 
a far-seeing group of individuals who understood 
the wisdom that made the creation of "one or more 
universities" a part of the organic law of the StaU-, 
and who steadily nurtured and cared for the insti- 
tution until the time when che State would claim 
it for its own. 

The strength of personal devotion that the insti- 
tution received from such men as Colonel Kenan 
is thus partly explained by the need that it had 
for their support, and partly by the faith they had 
in its great mission. No service could have been 
more statesmanlike and more richly productive than 
this of preserving for tbe State its most character- 
istic institution. 

The whole State will gratefully feel all of this 
when it puts under review its spiritual history; but, 
in addition, the alumni, as they look on this por- 
trait, will have feelings of more intimate and ffrate- 
ful appreciation. Because their relation to Colonel 
Kenan was singularly personal, the alumni have 
for him a stronger affection than for the others 

who served as finely as he. From the early eighties, 
on through the nineties, and up to his death, the 
members of each graduating class knew Colonel 
Kenan as a part of the most precious experience 
of their lives. Each year, he and Mrs. Kenan 
came, the earliest sign of the coming commence- 
ment, and took their quarters at the Inn, at the 
end of the annex, next to the heart of the campus. 
And they stayed until the last function was over, a 
beautiful and sympathetic part of it all. 

Colonel Kenan's heart was as young as each grad- 
uating class that he met around the Davie Poplar, and 
his spirit as sweet and rare as those days of earliest 
June, when "the light that never was on land or 
sea" touches our little world for a moment, and 
makes it seem all friendship and love and victorious 
youth .... and the wood-thrush calls through the 
velvet shadows that tremble across the campus . . . 

It is from men like Colonel Kenan that a college 
atmosphere gets the richly human tone that is the 
essence of liberal culture and that is the secret of 
its power to inspire abiding affection. His spirit, 
it is pleasant to feel, will always hover over the 
campus that he loved, and here his memory will 
always be freshly and deeply cherished. 


The plans for the approaching commencement are 
all made. Nothing remains except for June to keep 

up the fine sprint it has lately

campus. The woods are white with dog-wood in 
full blossom, and eloquent with Senior orators in 
semi-blossom. The baccalaureate sermon will be de- 
livered on Sunday morning, May twenty-eighth, by 
Bishop J. H. McCoy, of Birmingham; a vesper ser- 
vice for the graduating class and their friends will 
be hold on the campus on the same day, led by Bev. 
W. D. Moss; the alumni address, on Tuesday, will 
be by Dean W. C. Smith '96, of the faculty of the 
State Normal College; and the commencement ad- 
dress, the feature of the closing day, will be made 
by Secretary William G. McAdoo. No more at- 
tractive speakers have ever held the outstanding 
places on the programme. In addition, all the stand- 



bys of commencement will be found in their old 
places, though some of them with a now twist. This 
much is certain: the exercises for the 1916 com- 
mencement will be unusually interesting, and the 
crowd that will be here to enjoy them, unusually 


But, after all, exercises are only an excuse for

Come Back," we conclude that the L916 commence- 
ment, graduating exercises, and all the ri si of it. 
is a little device for entertaining the class of 1911 
when its gets together for its five year reunion. 
The Come Back is a four page paper "published 
occasionally in the interest of 1911." This first 
number is published evidently and exclusively "in 
the interest of 1011," and is what is known in 
academic circles as "a knock-out," 

Nineteen Eleven has the right idea. If knows 
that successful reunions do not come by accident. 
but by well-designed preparedness; that the secret 
lies in personal work in getting all of the men back, 
and that the secret of getting them back is in sho-wing 
them that the big idea in a reunion is to have a 
guild time, and not to raise the tariff, eradicate the 
hook-worm, nor endorse the importance of the Pana- 
ma Canal. If the country has in mind going to the 
demnition bow-wows, and is thinking of calling on 
"the college men of the South to respond to the 
demand fur intelligent leadership" to save it, 191 l's 
idea seems to he that the country will have to wait 
at leasi till (he end of the week. She is not going to 
do any rescue work between Sunday and Wednesday 
of the last week in May. If the country seriously 
intends in go down for the third time on May twenty- 
ninth or thirtieth, somebody else will have to throw 
out the oratorical life-line. These two days are 1911's 
evenings out. She has ordered sailor suits, and hats 
in match, red ties and red sox, and she means to 
enjoy herself, without waiting for the aid or consent 
of any other nation. We think we catch the com- 
plete thought; ami as a member of Pedagogy T 
one- said when questioned as to his conception of 
apperception: "We approve of it."

classes are planning to make 1!>11 step lively to 
keep out in front; and all of them are showing a more 
active interest in the re-unions than is usual. I!ut 
it will be remarkable if there is not one unwise vir- 
gin in the lot who trusts more to manifest destiny 
than to adequate preparedness. Always there is a 
class or two in which everybody vaguely expects that 
somebody else will make the arrangements. All that 
the arrangements for such quiet little affairs, when 
they do come off, usually lack, as the chronicler for 
191 1 remarks, is the hearse and enough spectators to 
make a successful funeral. 

For a good re-union, the one thing necessary is to 
get t lie men back. To get them some man or small 
group of men must show a little initiative and fake 
a little trouble. The main thing to see about, and 
to let the members of the class know about, is that 
when they come back, they will find the whole class 
on the campus once more. The rest is relatively easy.

spent here. It was a pretty 
close fit getting them all well eared for, but it was 
done with complete success, and the whole affair 
went off to the obvious delight of everybody. He- 
sides the main attraction, there was a track meet and 
a tennis tournament ; but the overshadowing event 
was the great debate. This came to its climax Fri- 
day night in Memorial Hall. After two days of 
forensic warfare, the four contestants, who survived 
from the three hundred who came to Chapel Hill 
(and who had been selected from the original thir- 
teen hundred that started) met for the final clash. 
The audience that faced them was in every way wor- 
thy of the great State-wide contest. Memorial Hall 
was more than filled by the crowd that overflowed 
the gallery and the doorway. An excellent debate, 
keen excitement, and fine sportsmanship combined to 
make it the most spectacular occasion of the Univer- 
sity year. More than that, its far-reaching influ- 
ences and effects — in stimulating student ambition 
and the widest possible interest in public questions 
by the public, and in bringing the University into 
sympathetic touch with the rest of the school system 
— can scarcely be overestimated. 


1 s l 


For the past nine months there has been a steadily 
active discussion of a possible change of attitude on 
the part of the universities of 
this country to military brain- 
ing. The question was raised at 
the last meeting of the Trustees 
in regard to the introduction of practical military 
drill and courses into our own University. Very 
little interest was shown in the matter here, however, 
apparently for the reason that the chance for so radi- 
cal a change was considered too remote to cause ex- 

"Modern miltary training involves two rather dis- 
tinct elements, the one intellectual, the other largely 
physical. The first we believe to be a proper part of 
the University curriculum ; the second can be most 
economically and efficiently managed in national mil- 
itary training camps." This summary seems to 
strike at the heart of the problem that has aroused 
the miscellaneous discussion of the past year. The 
American college of the type of the University of 
North Carolina is scarcely better prepared to give 
efficient military training on the physical side (tak- 
ing into consideration cost in money and time) than 
the Plattsburg or the Oglethorpe camp is to give a 
liberal education. To be prepared to give such mili- 
tary training, this type of college would have to un- 
dergo complete readjustment. The national sum- 
mer military camps can give satisfactory military 
training on the physical side; the college can supple- 
ment its present curriculum by adding whatever 
courses modern miltary service demands. Such a 
co-operative plan would seem to be the way out for an 
institution that believes heartily in the need for a 
citizenry trained in arms, but whose ideal of prepar- 
ation for life seen wholly and clearly, does not permil 
emphasis on preparation for life seen as a barracks or 
a camp. 

The national summer camps seem to as, therefore, 
to be an admirable plan for business men, profes- 
sional men, and for college students. We arc pleased 
to carry in this issue a description of the Plattsburg 
Camp by Professor John M. Booker, and to announce 
that through the generosity of Mr. A. .!. Draper of 
Charlotte, ben scholarships to the Oglethorpe ('amp 
will be given to undergraduates of the University this 
summer. This gift is characteristic both of Mr. 

Draper's far-sighted tvisd and of his fine public

We had not meant to mention the Loyalty Fund 

this month, but how is it possible not to mention it 

when most of the letters that have 
THE LOYALTY t t> , • a, 

come to 1 n k Review this month 

are about it, and all of them are full 

of a desire, not merely in regard to this fund but in 

regard to every aspect of the University's life, to get 

the overwhelming strength of alumni power actively 

at work for the upbuilding of the institution ? 

We publish extracts from a few of these letters, on 
another page. If each of the alumni, scattered to the 
four corners of the continent, could simultaneously 
know how willing all of the others are to join in a 
great common effort for the development of the Uni- 
versity, and if that effort could once be made, the 
institution would leap forward in a way that would 
startle the world ! In the past month, more construc- 
tive suggestions and helpful criticisms have come 
from the alumni than during the whole previous 
period of the Review's history. 

One idea in connection with the Loyalty Fund is 
outlined in a letter from Dr. H. H. Home to the 
members of his class — the great '95 — which we take 
the liberty of printing. This idea of Dr. Home's is 
such a splendid one that we- believe that it will be 
followed by all of the other classes, and assure the 
basis of a worthy endowment fund by our one hun- 
dred and twenty-fifth anniversary, in 1920. The 
class of 1905, another great class, and the class that 
really started the whole movement by a cash gift of 
$1000 is now engaged, through the initiative and in- 
terest of Mr. W. T. Shore of Charlotte, in a cam- 
paign to get every member of the class to be an an- 
nual contributor to the fund. The councils for simi- 
lar funds at Princeton and at Cornell have been en- 
gaged for the past two weeks in personal campaigns, 
conducted by teams of alumni in all the large cities 
in the country, in a great effort to roll up a big 
alumni endowment, and have been succeeding mag- 

"You seem to think we can be as great as Prince-

"Is that right?" 

Surely it is right. The college is as great as its 
alumni— the men it makes. It will be as great as our 
faith in it, and our wisdom and our passion to make 
ii what we want il to be.

By John M. Booker, Associate Professor of English in the University 

The appeal of the military training camp to our 

students, fostered by recent gifts of scholarships to 
the Fort Oglethorpe Camp, has made such headway 
that the Review thinks a personal account of the 
camp life might interest our alumni. 

The life in one of these camps is largely determin- 
ed by the aims the camp is expected to realize. These 
aims are three: "To help equip properly qualified 
men to fill the great deficiency in commissioned offi- 
cers that would immediately arise in case of national 
emergency ... ; to foster a patriotic spirit and 
spread some knowledge of military history, military 
policy, and military needs; to instil . . . the habits 
of obedience, discipline, command, and self-control 
that are the prerequisites of efficiency in every busi- 
ness or profession. . . ." 

Of these aims the first is the most decisive in shap- 
ing camp life. It determines the two phases of camp 
training. In the first, phase one is taught the manual 
of arms, the care and use of the rifle, and the move- 
ment of troops in close formation and in open order. 
By the term "close formation" is meant the move- 
ments involved in marching from place to place in an 
orderly manner, — up a street, around a corner, from 
a contracted to an open space. By the term "open 
order" is meant the movements involved in advancing 
and retreating under the conditions of modern shell 
and rifle fire and in fire control. Obviously for these 
exercises a stationary camp, a little ground and a rifle 
range are all that is needed for a field of operations. 

In the second phase the body and mind are trained 
in the endurance of long marches under pack and in 
the execution of maneuvers incident to engagements 
of large bodies of men. This phase is popularly 
known as "the hike." The maneuvers of an engage- 
ment, — at least what I learned of them at Platts- 
burg; my book knowledge is nil, — seemed to be of 
three kinds. First, contact with the enemy is estab- 
lished. Here comes in the work of pickets, patrols, 
and, in the cavalry, screens. Then the engagement 
gets under way. The troops are massed, the artillery 
prepares the way, and the infantry begins its ad- 
vance. This advance consists in short rushes of small 
units, — squads, platoons, or companies, according to 
the scope of the engagement, — to an alignment close 
in front of the enemy's position. It culminates in 
the bayonet charge, which, it is said, decides every 
engagement. Finally then comes the retreat. Here 
the rear-guard has all the fun and the main bodv 

does the trudging. The Plattsburg regiment, in 
which I had my little experience, was attached dur- 
ing its maneuvers to a force of some 5,000 regulars, 
and the whole body of 6,000 plus was divided into 
two armies, the Reds and the Blues. This was most 
fortunate ; for, of course, the greater the number, the 
wider the experience. Such exercises as those just 
described demand an open countryside and a series 
of pitched camps. The learning to live under such 
conditions is not the least valuable by-product of field 
maneuvers. Of the knowledge acquired in the sta- 
tionary camp, maneuvers make the chief demand on 
that gained in the open order drills; in fact the at- 
tacks of the maneuvers are the practical application 
of it. 

The differences in the life led during these two 
phases of camp training can be easily imagined. 
The stationary camp life is more comfortable and 
less arduous; but it lacks the change of scene and the 
pang of a game, which characterize the hike and more 
than make up for the increased physical effort de- 
manded by it. 

Perhaps a sketch of a specimen day will best serve 
to give an idea of life in a stationary camp. We 
were roused at three minutes before roll call, which 
came at six. We got into our clothes — or stayed in 
them — and waked up on calisthenics. Then we had 
breakfast. Those who washed up before breakfast 
rose early, but this was never a popular custom. After 
breakfast came an interval. It was chiefly occupied 
in cleaning out tents and making up our packs. Then 
came the morning drill. Like everything else about 
the camp this was conducted intelligently. The offi- 
cers knew how to pack: and the material was well 
organized, to borrow an academic phrase. For in- 
stance, the periods of rest between drills were gradu- 
ated down to a nicety, and the weight of the pack was 
graduated up with equal precision. Dinner next, 
and a loaf following it. At two, or thereabouts, fell 
to each his "specialty." We chose from machine 
guns, artillery, signalling, map-making, aviation, or 
equitation (cavalry), which last was divided into 
two grades — advanced equitation and elementary 
equitation. Our specialties often proved the most 
exciting kind of work. Mine did. Tt was equita- 
tion; and as I had ridden not more than twice in my 
whole life. — and then only off and on, so to speak, — 
it proved about as exciting as an accident, or even a 
series of accidents. And it was only elementary equi- 



tation at that — elementary aviation our officers called 
it the first time they saw us hovering in the saddle. 
A swim and a dress parade, and the work of the day 
was over. After supper we went to a lecture on some 
military topic, — the arms of the different nations, 
the functions of cavalry, the possibility of the in- 
vasion of the United States, and similar matters were 

On the hike, marches and attacks took the place of 
drills and specialties ; expositions of the day's ma- 
neuvers and the decisions of the umpires took the 
place of lectures. We slept in tents that sheltered 
two instead of six ; and we carried these tents in our 
packs, — each man, a half of one. The refuse of the 
hike was buried instead of being burned. When we 
left a camp site, it looked as clean as our company 

streets at Plattsburg. We ate from traveling kitch- 
ens instead of in our mess tents. The food was the 
same — "plain but substantial." Sometimes the meat 
was better than substantial ; it was eternal. But we 
always wanted it and came back for more; and it 
held us up O. K. No kick coming on the food. The 
hike serves as final test of the character and attain- 
ments of men and officers and may therefore be re- 
garded as the climax of the season's training. 

This sketch of the camp life is after all merely an 
account of camp living; the real life is to be found 
in the unforgettable pictures of men and animals in 
action, the interest of the war game, and the many 
revelations of human nature in one of its best moods 
— in a body of men bent upon shouldering through a 
difficult job good-humoredly. 


Dr. G. B. McClellan Delivers First Series of Weil Lectures in American Citizenship 

The inauguration this year of the Weil Lectures in 
American Citizenship endowed by the families of the 
late Henry and Sol Weil, was signalized by the trib- 
ute paid to these men by President Graham no less 
than by the lectures themselves, delivered by George 
Brinton McClellan, ex-mayor of New York City, and 
now professor of economic history at Princeton Uni- 
versity. "No theory of American Citizenship," said 
President Graham, "can be quite as convincing as a 
true American Citizen, and the most impressive 
thing about these lectures on citizenship will always 
be the memory of Henry and Sol Weil, citizens." 

Professor McClellan divided his subject, "Ameri- 
can Citizenship," into three parts — "The Nation." 
"The Law," and "The Citizen." Surprisingly lack- 
ing in first-hand personal reminiscences of the large 
problems of American citizenship, the lectures were 
forthright and manly if somewhat elementary ex- 
positions of the topics treated, couched in the popular 
style of the trained writer for the press. In his first 
lecture, the pervasive force of the spirit of nationality 
— and its influence upon the modern world — was de- 
scribed and traced. It was described as a type of 
enlightened selfishness so broad and inspiring as to in- 
volve the highest form of unselfish sacrifice on the 
part of the individual. "Universal human brother- 
hood may some day become an actuality, but it is 
still a long way off, and the highest and the loftiest 
ideal which has yet guided mankind in the practical 
affairs of government is the spirit of nationality 
which has covered and rules the world." 

In the second lecture was stressed the idea that laws 
cannot be enforced so long as public opinion is oppos- 

ed to them. To be effective, the law must not simply 
be enacted, but be re-enforced by the public will. In 
an historical survey, the lecturer showed the various 
stages through which our American civilization has 
passed with reference to its attitude toward the Con- 
stitution. Today, he maintained, the Constitution 
once more occupies a warm place in the hearts of the 
American people. In conclusion the assertion was 
made that the chief task of democracy must be the 
cultivation of a public opinion "so sane and healthy 
that it will work for freedom and righteousness in 
the cause of all the people, and not in the interest of 
any privileged part." 

In the third lecture, Professor McClellan made an 
immediate appeal to the young men of this gener- 
ation, whom he described as the hope of our country, 
the hope of our civilization. He looked to education as 
the solvent for a just realization of a better under- 
standing among all sorts and conditions of men. He 
pointed out to the young men of today that it was 
their duty, the duty they owe to their country, as men 
of education and as Americans, to devote their lives 
to the work of guiding the people in the way of right- 
eousness and truth, so that American civilization may 
lir preserved for the greater good and the greater 
glory of our country. "It is the duty of every one 
of yon, according to the opportunity and grace that 
God gives you, to answer the call from the people 
for knowledge, and information, and light, to be- 
come a moulder of public opinion, to become a leader 
of men, to help the American people work out the 
problem they have set themselves to solve, govern- 
ment by the majority." 



Henry and Sol Weil 

In presenting Dr. George B. MeClellan, who de- 
livered the Weil Lectures in American Citizenship, 
President Graham gave the following appreciation of 
Henry and Sol Weil in whose honor the lectureship 
was established : 

Although a course of lectures on citizenship was 
given here last year, the lectures that begin tonight 
really inaugurate the foundation known as the Weil 
Lectures in American Citizenship, endowed by the 
families of the late Henry and Sol Weil. 

The establishment of this lectureship on a perma- 
nent basis falls in most aptly with the reawakened 
and somewhat suddenly aroused concern in the whole 
question of National citizenship. In its larger as- 
pects, American citizenship has lately been put to 
searching tests that have shown certain assumptions 
of ours to be more comfortable than assured ; and has 
brought us to realize that, whatever else may be 
guessed as to the promise of the disquieting years 
ahead, we may feel confident that their first fruit 
for vis will come from a thorough researching of the 
meaning of American citizenship, in its economic, 
governmental, and spiritual relations. The Weil lec- 
tures will happily bring to us each year the best 
American thought on this subject, 

Wo theory or discussion, I may take the liberty of 
saying here, however illuminating, can be quite so 
convincing as the reality that embodies it. A noble 
character is more impressive than a treatise on 
ethics; the lily in the field, or 'the flower in the 
crannied wall,' is a justification more complete than 
a botanical analysis of it, or a gardener's guide to it; 
and its beauty is an exposition of its being that makes 
metaphysics and theology, in its presence, at any rate 
unnecessary. No theory of American citizenship 
can be quite as convincing as a true American citi- 
zen; and the most impressive thing about these lec- 
tures on citizenship will always lie the memory of 
S<il and Henry Weil, citizens. What they person- 
ally were is so simply and impressively what true 
citizenship is. that in the presence of their memory, 
what I might say of civic obligation or patriotic duty 
would not be heard. 

The record of their lives has no fact of outstand- 
ing interest, though it holds in essence the romance 
of America. They came to this country from Ger- 
many in their early manhood — in fact, in their boy- 
hood — and went into business with their brother 
Herman in the town of (roldsboro, in 1865. There 
they remained until their death in the Fall of 1914. 
When it is said that steadily through the 50 years 
of their life in this American town they built up a 
great business, and created in its construction a name 
-real too for bonor. stability, fair-dealing, commer- 
cial insight and vision, the essential feature of the 

story is told. Business was the germinating center 
of their active lives, as it is the center of the best 
of American life of their period. Business was the 
activity through which their genius expressed itself, 
and they put into it the enthusiasm, the devotion, 
the imagination, the ideal iuterest of the artist at 
work. 'Art for its own sake' in an attitude that 
their frank practice would have impatiently ignored, 
and yet it was their attitude in the constructive crea- 
tion to which they set their minds and hearts. Busi- 
ness was a great profession to them, and recognition 
of its greatness stimulated their personal and civic 
relations, and did not, for all of its severe exactions, 
tyrannize over them. 

Their many public services and philanthropies 
need not be recorded here. They put no emphasis 
on what they made nor on what they gave away. 
Money was to them a sign and a by-product of busi- 
ness success, and philanthropy was not for publica- 
tion nor expiation, but a by-product of generous 
human impulses and loyalties. They were direct, 
sincere, clear-seeing, practical men ; they were also 
and always loyal, true-hearted, patriotic, religious 
men. For the supreme investment of their youth 
and ambition in the ideals of America, she gave 
them back the abundant productive life of American 
citizenship. The University of North Carolina, to 
whose interests they were devoted, proudly and af- 
fectionately places their names among those it de- 
lights to honor. 


All Alumni Take Careful Notice 

The plan on which the alumni luncheon was con- 
ducted last year, and which gave universal satisfac- 
tion will be followed again this year. There will 
lie good music, a student cabaret reinforced this time 
by alumni performers, and the luncheon itself will 
be of excellent quality. Ladies will be admitted as 
last year. 

Those who expect to attend should notify Mr. 
E. K. Rankin, Sec'y, in advance and secure tickets. 
It will be remembered that owing to the failure of 
many of the alumni to act on this suggestion last year, 
some could not be accommodated. There will be 
a much larger crowd this year. Tickets may be 
returned at any time before the day of the luncheon 
and the money refunded. The price is one dollar. 
It is impossible to provide a luncheon of the sort 
planned for a number of guests indefinitely esti- 
mated as between four hundred and fifty and six 
hundred. Please help the committee out on this. 



The Victory in Mammoth Debating Contest Goes to Miss Myrtle Cooper and Boyd Harden 

of the Graham High School 

The fourth annual final contest of the High School 
Debating Union was held at the University on Thurs- 
day and Friday, April 13th and 14th. Miss Myrtle 
Cooper and Boyd Harden, representing the Graham 
high school, were victorious over all others and car- 
ried home with them the debating trophy, the Aycock 
Memorial Cup. They won the decision in the final 
debate in Memorial Hall, upholding the affirmative 
of the query: Resolved, That the United States 
should adopt the policy of greatly enlarging its Navy. 
Their opponents in the final debate were Wade Gard- 
ner and David Isear, of the Wilson High School, de- 
fending the negative. 

Two hundred and seventy-two debaters — 81 of 
them girls — representing 68 high schools, came from 
all parts of the State to participate in the final con- 
test for the Aycock Memorial Cup. Debaters were 
present from Eastern points, such as Poplar Branch, 
Currituck County, and Lake Landing, Hyde County. 
From the West debaters came from Waynesville, Bilt- 
more, Jefferson, Glade Valley, and other extreme 
points. Together with the inter-scholastic track meet 
and tennis tournament, the contest of the Debating 
Union made up Hinh School Week in the Univer- 
sity's calendar. For the week fully 500 visitors came 
to Chapel Hill. They were heartily received and 
their stay was made enjoyable. They carried back 
with them to the high schools and to the various com- 
munities a new knowledge of the co-operative work of 
the State's greatest public school. 


The 272 debaters who participated in the final 
contest had all been successful in their triangular de- 
bates on March 31st, in which series 1300 debaters, 
representing 325 high schools in 94 counties of the 
State, participated. 

The teams on the affirmative were divided by lot 
into six sections for the first preliminary, Thursl.iy 
night, April 13th, and likewise the teams on the nega- 
tive were divided into six sections. From each ol 
these sections two teams were chosen for a second pre- 
liminary, Friday morning. April 14th. The schools 
which had teams making the second preliminary on 
the affirmative were: Graham. Laurinburg, East Dur- 
ham, Faison, Rocky Mount. Statesville, Mooresville. 
Raleigh, Wilson, Gastonia, Pinnacle, and Startown. 
The schools having teams in the second preliminary 
on the negative were: Wilson, Stem, Raleigh, Pleas- 

ant Garden, Lowell, Wendell, Clarkton, Glade Val- 
ley, Rocky Mount, Statesville, Gary and Gastonia. 
The schools having teams in the second preliminary 
both affirmative and negative were: Wilson, Raleigh, 
Rocky Mount, Statesville, and Gastonia. 


Memorial Hall was filled to its entire capacity on 
the occasion of the final debate Friday night, April 
14th. It has been estimated that fully 2,000 persons 
heard the final debate, the audience consisting of de- 
baters, athletes, teachers, principals, and superinten- 
dents, citizens of Chapel Hill, members of the facul- 
ty, and a large number of people who had come in 
automobiles from various cities in the State. 

President E. K. Graham presided over the debate. 
Mr. W. J. Brogden, of Durham, a member of the 
Class of 1898 and a member of the first victorious 
inter-collegiate debating team to represent Carolina, 
presented the Aycock Cup to the winning team in be- 
half of all the University's inter-collegiate debaters. 
Dean M. C. S. Noble, of the School of Education, 
presented the cups and medals to winners in the 
inter-scholastic track meet. The stage of Memorial 
Hall had been appropriately decorated for the occa- 
sion. The young debaters were frequently given pro- 
longed applause. 

President Graham commented on the growth of 
the Debating Union and declared this to be North 
Carolina's greatest contest and North Carolina's 
greatest developer of public opinion. 


The first speaker on the affirmative for the Graham 
high school was Miss Myrtle Cooper. She advocated 
not preparedness for, but preparedness against war. 
Her points were that the position of the United States 
among the powers makes a greatly enlarged navy im- 
perative ; that we cannot tell what part we may have 
to take in the European war ; and that the Monroe 
Doctrine can only be upheld by our power to control 
the seas in the Western Hemisphere. Miss Cooper 
spoke with distinctness and effectiveness. She was 
given applause. 

The first speaker on the negative representing the 
Wilson high school was Wade Gardner, small of sta- 
ture and young, but effective in argument. His 
points were that we already have a navy surpassed 
only by England's; that we have no good reason to 
fear any other nation; that the proposed policy 




would destroy our world leadership for righteousness 
and bring us upon war itself; that other methods are 
within our grasp by which we may effectively pro- 
mote peace with honor. 

Boyd Harden was the second speaker for the affir- 
mative. He advocated a greatly enlarged navy, be- 
cause this would protect our country from all dan- 
ger of attack and would make unnecessary a large 
standing army. A comparison of our navy with those 
of other world powers, he declared, shows how incapa- 
ble it is of protecting our nation. He advocated the 
adoption of the policy of greatly enlarging the navy 
as being the only expedient measure that could be 
taken to uphold the honor of the nation and protect 
the rights and liberties of the people. 

David Isear was the second speaker for the nega- 
tive. He argued that there was practically no chance 
that the United States would go to war with any 
nation; that in case we should ever go to war, the 
Panama Canal would double the efficiency of our 
navy; and that to adopt the policy of a greatly en- 
larged navy would not be a worthy role for our nation 
of high ideals to assume, protected as it is by over 
3,000 miles of ocean, the best coast defenses in the 
world, and by a navy second only to that of Great 

The rejoinders on both sides were spirited and 
forceful. The rejoinders, as well as the main speech- 

es, showed that the debaters had a mastery of the 
subject and were speakers of composure. 

The decision of the judges, Messrs. H. H. Wil- 
liams, C. L. Eaper, H. W. Chase, 6. M. McKie, and 
L. P. McGehee, stood four to one in favor of the 

In a fitting speech, Mr. W. J. Brogden presented 
the Aycock Cup to the winning team. He spoke of 
the benefits coming from participation in the contests 
of the Debating Union and paid a tribute to the late 
( 'harles B. Aycock, in whose honor the trophy cup is 
named. At this time Dean Noble in happy fashion 
presented the cups and medals to winners in the inter- 
scholastic track meet. Immediately after the debate 
a reception was tendered all visitors in the Library. 
This was the closing exercise in the program of en- 


In carrying through to a successful conclusion the 
final contest, praise should be given for the spirit of 
co-operation found everywhere. Members of the fa- 
culty acted as judges in the preliminaries and in the 
final debate. Chapel Hill homes entertained the 
more than one hundred girls and ladies who came 
for the debate. Students acted as officers in the pre- 
liminaries and entertained the boys and men in the 
dormitories. They co-operated heartily in giving the 
visitors a good time. The teachers and a number of 



tlie students of the Chape] Hill Graded School gave 
valuable help, in serving at the reception and in de- 
corating the srage of Memorial Hall. The Swain 
Hall management contributed in altogether satis- 
factory fashion the bill of fare at the reception. 

The baseball management provided complimentary 
tickets for the Carolina-Wofford game. The Y. M. 
C. A. gave its building and the time and efforts of its 
officers to the Debating Union. 


Since its organization in 101. '5. the High School 
De ating Union has met with a remarkable success 
and growth. It has grown and has carried with it 
beneficial results for the individual debater, his 
school, his community, and the University. 

In 1013, 3G0 debaters representing 90 schools in 
45 counties took part in the contest, in 1014. 600 
debaters participated representing 150 schoools in 
64 counties. In 1915, 1000 debaters participated 
representing 250 schools in 01 counties. This year, 
1300 debaters representing 325 schools in 94 counties 
took part in the contest. 

The Debating Union is a part of the Universitv'- 
extension plan. It will be pushed with still further 
vigor next year and it is thought that the enrollment 
then will reach 400 schools.

Tiik Review publishes herewith a letter from 
Mr. W. F. Taylor, of Goldsboro, relative to the big 

reunion which the ('lass of 1911 is preparing to 
hold at the approaching commencement : 

The March i"iie of the Review carried a letter 
written by John Tillett relative to the 1011 class 
reunion to be pulled off at the coming commence- 
ment. I trust that by this time every member of 

the class has not only read rhis letter, but has also 
received a copy of the "TO 11 COME BACK." If 
SO, 1 know the desired result will follow and that 
every one of us may confidently look forward to 
seeing more of our fellow classmen on the Hill for 
our firs! reunion than have ever attended any other 

Our President was certainly on the job when he 
appointed the Reunion Committee, as is evidenced 
by the work which they are doing and the interest 
which they are taking in making May 20th and 
30th Red Letter I lays to be looked forward to. 
We all realize the weight of their burden and their 
responsibility in trying to get in touch with every 
member of the class. If each man with whom they 
arc in communication will only realize what an im- 
portant event the commencement of 1916 will be 
in the history of our class, the result will be inevi- 
table. From far and near they will be there. Nine- 
teen Eleven will take the campus. 

This is to be a big commencement in every respect. 
Judging from the rumor afloat and the dope that 
is being sent out from headquarters, no man will 
regret being there. Many things will happen en- 
tirely new to class reunions on the Hill. The new 
Emerson Athletic Field will be the scene of many 
stunts heretofore unheard of at commencement. 
The base-ball games scheduled will be of the Big 
League type, and in all that is to be done towards 
making 1916 the best commencement so far, 1911 
is going to follow her previous history made during 
the four years career on the campus. We are going 
to set a pace for all subsequent reunions. Of course, 
we do not intend to magnify ourselves and our pro- 
ceedings at the expense of all other people and all 
other events of this commencement. After all, we 
arc not coming back simply to give an exhibition 
of our cleverness and our picturesqueness. We are 
coming back to enjoy ourselves. Tt will be without 
doubt, a joyous occasion for us, to get back and spend 
a coinde of days in the camp of "Archie Dees' Tribe." 
There will be room for every one in the camp and 
those who are absent will regret it. Now is the time 
io begin planning for this trip, and if some one even 
has to make a sacrifice in "being away from his 
business and his little 1911" for a couple of days, 
may we all be on hand and " renin" as never before 
a class lias reuned on the Hill.

Our Alma Mater was the first American State 
University to open its doors, though Georgia's charter 
is five years older. This was in 1795. 

The class of 1895 will, therefore, always have the 
honor of being the first Centennial Class in our Re- 

In 1920 we have our twenty-fifth Reunion, the one 
hundred and twenty-fifth birthday of the University. 

Ours is the rare chance, meanwhile, to do some- 
thing really fine, by supporting the new Alumni Loy- 
alty Fund, 

1. To show our a'bi cling love for our fostering 
mother ; 

2. To help develop the new loyalty; 

3. To prepare the way for more generous state 
support ; 

4. To measure up to loyal alumni of Vanderbilt, 
Yale, M. I. T., Cornell, Michigan, etc. 

The University needs and deserves our help. Of 
fifteen Southern State Universities, her student body 
is sixth, while her income is only eleventh. She is 
doing more work on less money than any other 
Southern State University. 

Our Alma Mater has become socialized since our 
day, the Campus is now state-wide. President Gra- 
ham is an eminent leader. He heartily supports our 

Have we not reason to believe that educated lead- 
ership is the best "preparedness?" Our devotion to 
Alma .Mater in these days is part of our devotion to 
the Stars and Stripes. 

ISTow let's be factual, not merely nominal alumni. 
Our ideal: an average of $20.00 a year for five years 
from fifty men, to amount to $5000.00 as our birth 
day gift 'in 1920. The last $500.00 of this amount 
has been promised by one man. 

Make it more if you can, less if you must, and do 
it now, as we need to report the returns by May first 
at the latest. Don't let the enclosed stamped envel- 
ope lie idle! Just fill in the card, sign and mail. 

With cordial greeting across the years,

Members of the University faculty are busy de- 
livering extension lectures and commencement ad- 
dresses in various parts of the State. Among the 
engagements recently filled or to be filled in the 
near future are: 


From Mr. Allen H. Moore of the senior class 
of the Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, the 
Review has received a letter giving information as 
to the hospital appointments of quite a number of 
Carolina men who will this year graduate from 
medical schools in Philadelphia. These men are all 
members of the University Medical class of 1914. 
Mr. Moore's letter follows : 

I am very glad to say that Carolina is well repre- 
sented in the matter of hospital appointments at the 
best institutions in the country. 

There are 8 Carolina men in the graduating class 
at Jefferson and these men have secured the follow- 
ing appointments: 

B. W. McKenzie, Pennsylvania Hospital, Phila- 

H. F. Starr, New York City Hospital, New York. 

R, H. Long, Delaware Hospital, Wilmington, 

E. F. Uzzell, Atlantic City Hospital, Atlantic 
City, N. J. 

A. Mc. Crouch, Polyclinic Hospital, Philadelphia. 

Olin H. Jennings, Howard Hospital, Phila- 

T. P. Burrus, King's County Hospital, New 

Allen H. Moore, Episcopal Hospital, Philadel- 



The other mem'bers of the 1014 Medical class 
are at the University of Pennsylvania, University 
of Virginia, University of Maryland, Tulane Uni- 
versity and Johns Hopkins respectively. Norman 
Vann, J. G. Pate, F. P. James, W. A. Smith, L. II. 
Swindell and ( '. W. Eley are at the University of 
Pennsylvania. Peter McCoy is at Tulane; H. R. 
Kritzer, University of Maryland; P. W. Fetzer, 
University of Virginia and A. B. Greenwood, Johns 
Hopkins. I have not heard from the others except 
some of the Pennsylvania boys. 

Norman Van won highest place for the Phila- 
delphia General Hospital with an average of 86.7. 
Pate also won a high place for the Philadelphia 
General Hospital. W. A. Smith won first place at 
the Roosevelt Hospital, New York. C. W. Eley 
made an appointment at the King's County Hos- 
pital, New York. 


On March 29th the University News Letter pub- 
lished a letter from Judge W. P. Bynum, suggesting 
that a company of fifty men join him in subscribing 
$100 a year for five years to increasing' the circulation 
and influence of the paper till it completely covers 
the state, and reaches the reading public in other 

Since this letter was published, Mr. John Sprunt 
Hill and General J. S. Carr have joined Judge 
Bynum, and Mr. Hugh MacKae has offered to give 
$50 a year for five years. The plan and purpose 
are a big proposition, and this practical interest of 
big business men in it gives us confidence and 
makes us eager to undertake to realize the magnifi- 
cent opportunity that it opens up to us. 
A New Suggestion 

The following letter received recently may further 
point the way. 

"I note the recent offer of Judge Bynum as to 
The University News Letter. I heartily agree with 
his views us to its value. The paper is read with 
interest by all classes of our people who can get 
hold nf it. I believe its weekly message is not only 
invaluable inside the state, but its advertising value 
outside the state is immense. T am not able to put 
as much money behind my judgment as some others, 
but I want the privilege of subscribing $10 a year 
for the next five years. 1 consider this an invest- 
ment in the State. I'll get thai much good out of 
the paper directly and indirectly if its capitaliza- 
tion is increased, for I will probably ask you to send 
it to a hundred others in my county. Tn this way 
I'll get my money's worth, at least, and T always 
try to do that. 

"My suggestion then is that you give us smaller 

fry a chance: give fifty men a chance to subscribe 
$50 each for five years; and one hundred men a 
chance to subscribe $25, $15, or $10 (my size), 
and then the thing will go through with a whoop ! 
Then in addition to making us life subscribers, 
give each of us the privilege of sending it to a 
hundred people in our county free." 

The University News Letter heartily accepts the 
suggestion. This is the best possible way, and in- 
deed the only way to realize our dream for it. If 
there are among its readers at present enough people 
who wish to extend its influence to 50,000 people 
weekly in and out of the state, the paper is at their 
A New and Big Idea: An Economic Clearing-House 

In addition, and this is important: If this plan 
goes through successfully, we will be able to estab- 
lish here in connection with the paper an efficient 
clearing-house of economic and social information 
about North Carolina, for the us ■ of editors, in- 
vestors, legislators, students of a'l sorts, farmers, 
bankers, and business men in general. 

An Economic and Social Research Library of this 
sort at the University will be something new in 
the United States. Inquiries coming to us every 
day from every direction within and beyond the 
state demonstrate the necessity for such a center 
of ready information in North Carolina. The value 
of it is easily apparent It would be another long 
step forward in putting the University at the service 
of the State. 

If you are in any wise interested, write at once 
to Mr. E. R. Rankin, Secretary of the University 
Extension Bureau. The responses within the next 
few days will enable us to estimate the situation 
with more accuracy. ' 


The portrait of Major Charles Lewis Hinton, 
A. B., U. N. C. 1814, was presented to the Dialectic 
Society on April 15th, the portrait being the gift 
of Mis^ Mary Hilliard Hinton, of Raleigh, a grand- 
daughter of Major Hinton, and the address of pre- 
sentation being made by Dr. Kemp Plummet- Battle. 
Major Hinton graduated in the class with Gov. 
('has. Manly, Postmaster General Aaron V. Brown, 
and other eminent men. He served as a represen- 
tative in the state legislature, was for eleven years 
state treasurer, was an active trustee of the Univer- 
sity and a member of the executive committee of 
tin- board of trustees, and was a member of the 
committee on the sale of Cherokee lands. His death 
occurred in ISfiO. 




George Gordon Battle has 'been much in the public 
prints recently in connection with the trial of Thomas 
Mott Osborne, the prison reformer whom a group 
of political enemies are trying to put out of business. 
Mr. Battle is Mr. Osborne's counsel, and there seems 
no doubt now that the outcome will be an Osborne 

Not long ago the du Pont de Nemours Powder 
Company bought control of the Arlington Company, 
a concern that has among its officers James A. Gwyn, 
'96, and Francis A. Gudger, '98. There was talk 
of a shake-up. But whatever happened to the other 
folks in the company, the new chiefs decided that 
they mustn't let Gwyn and Gudger go. In fact 
these two alumni are now in better places than they 
had before. 

Alfred W. Haywood, Jr., assistant counsel of the 
Lorillard Tobacco Company, dwells now in West 
113th Street. He and his brother Holt and Preston 
Cummings and Louis Graves are looking forward 
with eagerness to the beginning of the tennis season. 
(This note was written April 7, and in New York 
tennis does not begin until the last part of April.) 
They have been skating some during the winter, but 
they find this a poor substitute for tennis. Mrs. Al- 
fred W. Haywood, Jr., is a skillful tennis player ; and 
in the summer season she and Mr. Haywood and 
Albert Springs, a South Carolina friend, are fre- 
quently seen on the courts maintained by Thomas 
Hill, '05, at West End Avenue and 96th Street. 

The New York Alumni frequently have the 
pleasure of seeing Herman Weil, '01, when he comes 
up on business trips from Goldsboro. There is a 
great demand among New York merchants for the 
packing boxes that are made of the gum-wood that 
grows on Mr. Weil's lumber preserve in eastern 
North Carolina. 

The late Anthony F. Wilding, who was killed 
in France while fighting with the British forces, 
was a friend of Francis A. Gudger, '98. Mr. Wild- 
ing was the world's best tennis player for several 
years. Once when they were at an Adirondack 
camp together, he offered to take a shingle for a 
racket, give Gudger a handicap of 15 points in the 
game, and play for any stake Gudger might name. 
Gudger, being a golf enthusiast and thinking of the 
day he was soon to spend on the links at Ardsley, 
made it a box of golf balls. The way he tells it, 
Mr. Wilding wasn't bothered at all by the substitu- 
tion of a shingle for a racket, and easily walked 
away with the game. 

Ralph H. Graves, '98, who not long ago was 
appointed city editor of the New York Times, has 
been living in the city since December 1, but he 
is now about to return to his home at Haworth, 
N. J. He is a zealous gardener. 

Quincy S. Mills, '07, is writing editorials for the 
Evening Sun. They are mostly about politics, and 
are considered splendid by the New York public. 
Mr. Mills, through his position as political reporter 
for the Evening Sun, acquired an intimate knowl- 
edge of the mechanism of the State and City politi- 
cal machines. He is also deeply interested in Na- 
tional defense; a graduate of the Plattsburgh train-

Men's Training Corps, which drills regularly under 
the instructions of United States Army officers. 


In Greater New York there are all manner of 
clubs, leagues, societies and associations. It is said 
on good authority that there are some of which 
Augustus Van Wyck has never been president. 

The number of organizations that possess this 
distinction, however, was diminished by one not long 
ago when Judge Van Wyck was elected president of 
the New England Society of Brooklyn. 

He has been the head of the New York Associa- 
tion of the Alumni of the University of North Caro- 
lina for many years. He was one of the first presi- 
dents of the Southern Society of New York. He 
was president of the North Carolina Society and the 
South Carolina Society at the same time. He was 
president of the Holland Society, which is composed 
of natives, or the descendants of natives, of Holland. 
He was the head of the National organization of the 
Zeta Psi Fraternity and of the Zeta Psi Alumni 
Association in New York. 

There are more bodies of which Judge Van Wyck 
has been or now is the leader ; it is not practicable 
to present the whole list. But if there was any 
collection of human beings to which Judge Van 
Wyck's friends thought he was ineligible, it was a 
New England society. Nobody doubted that a New 
England society would be glad to get him for a 
president if it could, for he is an inimitable pre- 
siding officer and has the faculty of bringing pros- 
perity and prestige to any flock he takes under his 
charge; but how could such a thing be arranged? 

The New England Society of Brooklyn has in 
its membership many close friends of the Judge. 
One of them, one day, was bemoaning the fact that 
the Judge could not take hold of it and instil into it 
some of his well-known brand of liveliness. 



"What a pity we can't have you as president," 
the New Englander said. "It's a shame you have 
no New England Connections." 

"What do you mean, no New England connec- 
tions?" Judge Van Wyck replied. "One of my 
grandmothers was born in New Hampshire." 

So he was promptly elected. 


A group contest of the inter-collegiate peace ora- 
torical association will be held at the University on

Carolina will deliver at this time their orations for 
peace on the "Hill."

In the first game with Virginia played on the 
Cone Park grounds, Greensboro, on April 1st, Caro- 
lina met defeat by the score of 5 to 2. For seven inn- 
ings Carolina held a lead of two runs allowing Vir- 
ginia no score, but the eighth proved fatal. In this 
frame Thurman, first baseman for Virginia, drove 
the ball over the left field fence, and the Virginians 
soon had four runs to their credit. The features for 
Carolina were Hart's catching and Zollicoffer's field- 
ing and hase running. Cuthrell and Powell served 
on the mound for Carolina. 

The second game of the series with Virginia which 

was to have been played on Emerson Field April 3rd 
was called off on account of rain. 


Carolina easily defeated Kichmond College April 
4th on Emerson Field by the score of 11 to 4. Barnes 
and Massey played star ball for Carolina. Aycock 
pitched six innings for Carolina, being relieved in 
the seventh by Kinlaw. 


On Emerson Field April 5th Carolina defeated 
William and Mary by the score of 3 to 2. The fea- 
tures of the game were Currie's steady work in the 
box and Barnes' timely hitting. 


Carolina defeated Wofford College on Emerson 
Field April 13th by the score of 6 to 1. The weather 
was ideal for baseball, and the crowd, augmented by 
high school debaters, principals, and other visitors, 
totaled fifteen hundred. The features of the game 
for Carolina were Powell's home run, the hitting of 
Barnes and Bennett, and the pitching of Aycock. 


Wake Forest won its third victory of the season 
over Carolina on April 18th at Wake Forest by the 
score of 4 to 3. The feature of the game for Caro- 
lina was the batting of Zollicoffer. Hart caught, and 
the pitching was done by Currie and Cuthrell. 

Carolina lost to Penn State April 21st on Emerson 
Field in a ten inning slugging match, the score 
standing 15 to 9. The features of the game were

CAROLINA 73.5; W. & L. 52.5 

In the first inter-collegiate track meet to be held 
on Emerson Field, Carolina defeated Washington 
and Lee on April 15th by the score of 73.5 to 52.5. 
The meet was filled with interesting races and was 
hotly contested throughout. The general idea on 
the "Hill" is that Coach Kent J. Brown and Captain 
Hazel Patterson have rounded into form the best 
track team which the University has had within a 

Upchurch for Carolina won first place in both 

the one mile and two mile, scoring ten points. 

Johnson of Carolina made a new State record in 

the discus throw by hurling it 112 feet 2 inches.

MAY 8 

The celebration of the tercentenary of Shakes- 
peare's death, which will be held on the campus of 
the University, .May S, will be essentially a commu- 
nity undertaking. All the forces of the town and 
University will com'bine in an effort to produce a 
worthy celebration. The organizations which are 
doing most to perfect the plans for the event are the 
English Department of the University; Omega Delta, 
the dramatic fraternity of the University; the Chapel 
Hill Community Club and the Chapel Hill Graded 
School. .Many members of the faculty and of the 
student body, .as well as many ladies of the town,' 
have volunteered to play the many roles of the vari- 
ous scenes. 

The program has been planned with a distinct pur- 
pose in view: to give glimpses of Elizabethan Eng- 
land, — its country life and its city life, — and to show 
Shakespeare's own conception of the arts of the actor 
and of the dramatist. Furthermore, the sequence of 
scenes illustrates the logical development of the great 
Elizabethan drama, starting with the early revels and 
festivals, rustic dances and merrymakings. The am- 
ateur companies such as that of Master Quince in 
their crude ways helped to further this interest in 
the drama, until it finally flowered in the works of 
the great artist. 

Part I of the program will be concerned with 
Shakespeare's England. Rural England as Skakes- 
peare knew it will be shown in scenes from Act IV 
of "A Winter's Tale," for though the setting is nomi- 
nally Bohemia, it is really the English countryside. 
Autolycus, the wily thief and singer of ballads, and 
the simple rustic whom he victimizes on the highway, 
were most certainly types thoroughly familiar to 
Shakespeare during his early years at Stratford. The 
sheep-shearing festival is distinctly a rural English 
merrymaking in which shepherds and shepherdesses 
frolic on the green, ami engage in their favorite 
pastime of ballad singing. The marriage of Touch- 
stone and Audrey, from "As You Like It," will be 
introduced into this scene to bring the town and 
country into contrast. 

Tin- Graded School will reproduce Tieck's Fairy 
Scene, based on Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's 
Dream, which shows the boy, Shakespeare, amid the 
beings of his own creation. 

In the two scenes from Henry IV, Parts I and 1 1, 
the tavern life of the town will be set forth. Falstaff, 
the braggart, and merry prince Hal engage in their 
frolics and jesting. In the scene from Henry IV, 
Part II, Henry dismisses Falstaff, and becomes the 

great national hero, whom Shakespeare immortalizes 
in such glowing language in Henry V. 

Part II of the program will show Shakespeare and 
His Art. Scenes from "Midsummer Night's Dream" 
will give the rehearsal and performance of the bur- 
lesque play of Pyramus and Thisbe, played by 
Quince and his company of mechanicals before Thes- 
sus and his queen, Hippolyta. The difficulties that 
beset amateurs of his day, the problems of realism, 
both in staging and in performance, Shakespeare 
knew only too well. 

In the advice which Hamlet gives the plavcrs 
Shakespeare sets forth his ideas concerning effective 
and truthful representation on the stage. 

The last scene to be given will be the final sceue 
from the "Tempest." Here Shakespeare bids fare- 
well to magic — to creative art. 'Like his own en- 
chanter, he breaks his wand.' The dramatist has seen 
beyond the drama into life and its limitations as 
well. Not only the drama is an illusion but life it- 
self is an illusion. The poetry and delicacy of im- 
agination revealed in this play make it a fitting one 
with which to close the celebration. 

The program will have many incidental dances 
and songs interspersed throughout the plays. There 
will lie a dance of shepherds and shepherdesses and 
also a nine mens' Morris in the scene from "A Win- 
ter's Tale." Students of the Graded School will give 
some incidental folk dances before the program prop- 
er begins, and there will also be a Maypole dance as 
an interlude. The University Glee Club will sing sev- 
eral songs from Shakespeare's plays, and there will be 
certain other songs and ballads sung in the respective 
scenes. Costumes appropriate for the various parts 
will be secured, and all possible efforts will be made 
to reproduce the atmosphere and personages of the 
England which the great poet knew. 


No lecture series of the year has aroused more 
interest or provoked more discussion than the Uni- 
versity Lectures on Literature and Art delivered by 
Prof. Bliss Perry, of Harvard University, April 
19th, 20th and :21st. on the general topic of "The 
Youth nf Representative Men." Professor Perry's 
manner was most pleasing, lie spoke in a simple, 
direel way, without manuscripl or notes, and this in- 
formality, plus his charm of delivery and thorough- 
ness of knowledge, held the close attention of all. 
Mr. Perry's lectures made their appeal more es- 
pecially to the undergraduate student body, and he 
took occasion to apply some of the principles exem- 
plified in (he youth of the men he chose to discuss.

McIntosh, Atwell Campbell. "Selected Cases 
on the Law of Contracts with Annotations." H. 
W. Anderson Co., 1915. 
This is the second edition of a book published 
originally in 1908 while Professor Mcintosh occu- 
pied a chair in the law school of Trinity College. The 
first edition was, with the exception of one case from 
the United States Supreme Court, exclusively a col- 
lection of North Carolina decisions. It was intended 
primarily for the use of students, and through 220 
cases developed, by the now familiar "case method," 
the leading principles of contract law. An intro- 
ductory synopsis, supplied with references to the de- 
cisions in the body of the book, enabled the student to 
digest and systematize the results of his study. Two 
features distinguished the volume somewhat from the 
ordinary case-book, and rendered it a useful working 
tool for the lawyer. Reference to its contents was 
facilitated by its arrangement in accordance with the 
detailed analysis of the table of contents, as well as 
by the index, unusually full for a book of this char- 
acter. But the main feature which gave value to the 
volume from the practitioner's point of view was the 
thorough annotation appended to the cases. These 
collected the pertinent or contracted decisions from 
our own reports and referred to cases and discussions 
in the annotated reports, encyclopaedies, and text- 
books, thus affording the means of an exhaustive in- 
vestigation of special topics. The dearth of text- 
books emphasizing North Carolina law justified the 
course pursued even in a volume designed for in- 
struction in law schools. 

The present edition is considerably enlarged, con- 
taining fifty-five more cases than its predecessor. The 
eight years that have passed since the last edition have 
enriched our reports by a number of decisions on 
contract, and the most valuable of these have been 
added to the volume or have superceded cases previ- 
ously used. It is to be noted also that the range of se- 
lection has been widened, and, while the cases are still 
taken mainly from the North Carolina reports, deci- 
sions from other jurisdictions have been admitted. 
These concern important points which do not arise 
under our statutes, or afford illustrations of funda- 
mental doctrines in a form better adapted for ele- 
mentary instruction than cases which might have 
been selected from our own reports. This, in the opin- 
ion of the writer, is a wise modification of the origi- 
nal plan. The study of cases selected from a wide 
field brings out the essential unity of our law and ac- 
customs the student to a more comprehensive outlook 
in investigation. 

The annotations throughout the volume have been 
subject to careful revision and brought up to date 
by the addition of new references. 

In its present form, Professor Mcintosh's Selected 
Cases on Contracts is in several particulars an im- 
provement on the first edition, useful as that volume 
was. It is a scholarly addition to our scanty legal lit- 
erature, admirably adapted to its primary purpose as 
a class book, and, by its methodical arrangement and 
thorough annotation, the best handbook on its subject 
for the North Carolina lawyer.

Bristol, Lucius Moody — "Social Adaptation." 
Harvard Economic Studies. Harvard Univer- 
sity Press, 1915. 

This is a book of 356 pages. It was awarded the 
David A. Wells prize for 1914-'15. 

The author is Lucius Moody Bristol, A. B. Uni- 
versity of North Carolina, 1895. Dr. Bristol is now 
assistant professor of Sociology in West Virginia 

The Preface in the book is written by Thomas 
Nixon Carver. He says that Dr. Bristol "has done 
a notable service in tracing the development of the 
concept of Social Evolution." The work is con- 
tained in five parts. 

The first division contains the Introduction, a 
chapter on August Comte, a chapter on Herbert 
Spencer, and a chapter on Sociological Methodology. 

The second division considers: Passive Physical 
and Physio-Social Adaptation. Under this caption 
are discussed Biological Evolution, Neo-Darwinian 



Sociologists, and the Environ mental School of So- 

The third division is: Passive Spiritual Adapta- 
tion. The chapters are: Development of the Con- 
cept of Society as an organism. The Anthropological 
Sociologists. The Historical Sociologists Sociolo- 
gists Emphasizing one all-important Formula or 
Principle. Transition from Passive to Active Adap- 

The fourth division is: Active Material Adapta- 
tion. The chapters are, Invention and Production. 
Invention and Production (continued). 

The fifth division is: Active Spiritual Adaptation. 
The chapters are: Active Social Adaptation. Ideal- 
ization and Religion. 

Chapter XVII gives a Summary and Conclusion. 
Then comes a Bibliography and Index. 

This seems to us a good book. It has the marks 
of thoroughness and completeness. To read it is 
both pleasing and informing. 

One may quarrel with Dr. Bristol for using spirit- 
ual and psychical as synonymous. And he may be 
confused by the topic here and there. For example. 
"The welfare of the group at times calls for the sac- 
rifice of the individual; it may call for the sacrifice 
of a club, a sect, a party, an institution. . . The 
attainment of the one supreme goal, — the well-being 
of the greatest number of rational individuals in- 
cluding not only the present but future generations." 
That, is, our supreme goal is numbers. And we at- 
tain this goal of numbers by the sacrifice of mem- 
bers. If you are interested in Social Progress and 
want a good book, get "Social Adaptation" by Dr. 
Bristol.— H. H. Williams, '83. 


Three of the four articles contained in the April 
issue of "Studies in Philology" are appropriately de- 
voted, like so many tributes of the year, to the study 
of Shakespeare or at least to some aspect of the 
English Renaissance. The other article, a contribu- 
tion by Professor C. Alphonso Smith, formerly of 
this university and now in the department of Eng- 
lish at Virginia, is entitled " 'Ordinary North-Caro- 
linese,' or T had rather stay than to go with you' ' 
and shows clearly that this interesting idiom has had 
support from distinguished usage in various times 
and places. It is pleasant to find this paper keeping 
company with Professor T. C. Graves' "Notes on 
Elizabethan Theatres," since both have a tendency to 
lessen the supposed distance between us and our fore- 
fathers: the net result of Mr. Graves' extremely 
thorough investigations into such details as chande- 
liers and cressets, back-stage and curtain, will surely 
be to give us a more vivid sense of Shakespeare's 

playhouse by showing that Elizabethan stagecraft was 
in certain ways more resourceful in realism and less 
impressionistic than it is often thought. We are in- 
vited to consider the furniture of Shakespeare's mind 
by Professor J. H. Hanford's "A Platonic Passage in 
Shakespeare's 'Troilus and Cressida' " — an article 
presenting evidence that Ulysses' speech on degree, 
which is undoubtedly based on the Platonic ideas of 
government common in sixteenth-century literature, 
may be directly indebted to a passage in the Repub- 
lic. Shakespeare as a moralizer on the fabric and 
conduct of society appears again in Professor E. A. 
Greenlaw's discussion of "Shakespeare's Pastorals," 
where, after adducing new and valuable parallels to 
establish the relation of As You Like It, ('t/mbeline, 
and similar plays to the type of pastoral tradition 
found in Sidney's Arcadia, Mr. Greenlaw traces the 
process by which the dramatist turned from criticism 
of the absurdities in pastoralism to delight in its ex- 
pression of the contemplative and unworldly ideal. 
Like the other articles described above, this is schol- 
arship with vision and vitality; and the reader of 
Studies in Philology cannot but realize that such 
examples of learned research, specialized as they are, 
belong among the real humanities, for they take us 
into the spacious times of the Renaissance in such a 
fashion that we can feel the form and pressure of 
the age as akin to our own days. 


Many things have co-operated in recent years to 
heighten in the collective mind of the campus the 
importance of one word, citizenship. Within the 
memory of the present Senior class, the intervention 
of civil law in the college traditions, the university 
extension activities, the county and State clubs for 
sociological study, the High School Debating Union 
and Inter-scolastic Sports, Rally Day, and the Moon- 
light Schools — all these as never before reminded 
the University student of his vital identity with 
and allegiance to the State. We are becoming in- 
creasingly conscious of our citizenship on a "State- 
wide Campus." 

This development has had a very noticeable effect 
on the campus citizenship, and the campus stand- 
ards have gained much in wholesomeness and serious- 
ness. There is less tendency to regard "jobs" as 
spoils for the victor or as honors in themselves. 

They are more frequently considered as the rewards 
of the public spirited worker and as honors to him 
only who serves efficiently.

"One for all, and all for one" 


"I will be one of five hundred to give $500 at any time before 1920." — D. B. W. 

"The alumni as a whole are very enthusiastic over this plan and it will only be a matter of a few 
years before the fund will amount to a sum which will be of great benefit to the University. I wish 
I were in a position to give ten times the amount of my pledge." — T. D. V. 

"I believe vou will meet with splendid response and it gives me great pleasure to contribute my 
little mite— $50.'"— W. S. D., '86. 

"What grateful son of the University has not dreamed through the years of the day he would be- 
queath to it a legacy worthy of its worth to him?" — C. G. F., '88. 

"A gratifying opportunity to express the appreciation that every alumnus must feel in return for 
the help and inspiration which the institution has been to him." — T. B. F. 

"This idea will concentrate and intensify our interest in the growth of the University and our 
knowledge of its affairs."— H. B. G. 

"I heartily thank you for giving me the chance to express in this small way the deep affection 
I have for the University and the sense of gratitude I shall always have." — R. M. H. 

"I feel indebted to you for having provided the opportunity whereby we may all help in the won- 
derful work the University is doing." — S. L. 

"I wish I could make it a million. I believe this is the greatest all-round movement as far as the 
mass of the alumni are concerned, because nobody is debarred from lending aid." — S. E. M. 

"An excellent plan and one welcomed by every alumnus." — T. S. P. 

"I enclose my check and will be glad when I am in position to show my full interest and faith in 
the great work the University is doing." — R. G. S. 

''I hope I may show more nearly the great love and gratitude that 1 have for my Alma Mater. 
— H. M. S. 

"It gives me a tremendous thrill thus to keep in touch with the abounding life of the University." 
— H. C. S.
