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. ITS A LONG, LONG WAY 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. AN ADVANCE INVENTORY 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 ef 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 diys of 1951. Today the opportunity is open to you. Let us lielp you to avail yourself of its lasting and com- forting benefits — now. See or write the old, old NEW ENGLAND MUTUAL LIFE INSURANCE CO.

It is a post-grad- uate course in medicine for practic- ing physicians, to be given in the home towns of the physicians. The plan is, in brief, to give sixteen weeks of lec- tures and clinics in some special phase of medicine by an acknowledged expert in that field, brought from one of the centers of scientific progress. He comes to the doctors practicing at home, instead of one or two of the best of them going to him for a week or ten days. A group of towns, reasonably close to- gether, and with satisfactory train schedules, has been selected, and a class of physicians (consisting of from six to fifteen) formed in each town and its sur- rounding country. A lecture is given to group A on Monday morning, and a clinic held that afternoon; on Tuesday the lecturer goes to group B, and so on through the six towns, coming back to group A the following Monday for the second lecture and clinic, and so on through the sixteen weeks. The expenses are borne by the physicians who take the course. The University and the State Board of Health manage the course in co-operation with the physicians in each center. There will be a small laboratory maintained in conection with each clinic throughout the sum- mer. The first course will begin early in June, and will be given by Dr. Louis Webb Hill, of Boston, at the following towns: Raleigh, Selma, Wilson, Tarboro, Goldsboro, Halifax. The subject of the courses will be the Diseases of Children. About seventy of the best known physicians throughout this district have registered for this course. DDD The ninth of May will be long remembered as a red letter day in the history of the University. For four hours the old campus, in the PEARE TER- " ^ beaut y of tlle new sea S°n and CENTENARY bathed in the light of a perfect day, was transformed into a bit of six- teenth century England. Tndeed, there was a sug- gestion of a period even earlier, for from all the surrounding country the folk gathered to await the coming of the players, as if Chapel Hill were York or Wakefield or the mysterious "N-town" in the days when the most worshipful guilds presented at Whit- suntide their mysteries. From the time when the long procession of players wound through the campus walks to the closing lines so beautifully pronounced by Prospero, the closest attention of the audience was given to the various scenes chosen for presentation. The level of the acting was unusually high, some scenes having professional quality. Not less gratify- ing was the smoothness with which the long program moved ; there were no delays, despite the large num- ber of participants and the great variety of the scenes; the total effect was of dignity and adequacy. But aside from the beauty of the setting, the effect- iveness of the costuming, and the excellence of the acting, the outstanding fact about the Pageant is that it supplied to the community an object lesson of the highest value. In the first place, the scenes were not chosen merely for their interest, or because they were representative of various phases of Shakespeare's work, or because they were adapted to the powers of amateurs, still less because they were "selected from Shakespeare." A double unity ran through the pro- gram. The design to convert the campus into a bit of Elizabethan England, already referred to, was furthered by the presentation of scenes that gave some idea of the countryside in which Shakespeare passed his boyhood and of the city in which he did his mature work. Thus the sheep-shearing, with its pastoral characters, its country dances, and the in- imitable Autolycus and Touchstone, represented the first, while the tavern scenes and the repudiation of Falstaff vividly suggested the second ; both repre- senting native and original element which Shakes- peare introduced into his dramatization of plots drawn from all literature and all times. Here were scenes to be understood by the veriest prentice, in- teresting as spectacle, vital in characterization, easily understood as story. But Shakespeare, besides sup- plying abundance of story and character, wove into his fabric more subtle threads, not so patent to the ■ groundlings, but a source of instruction and delight 212 THE ALUMNI REVIEW to the observer who looks quite through the deeds of men. This element was suggested by the fact that the Pageant presented symbolically the entire devel- opment of the Elizabethan drama. There were the May games, the action songs, and the dances which represented the expression of the dramatic instinct among the folk. There was the crude tragedy so laughably presented by Bully Bottom and his brother mechanicals, showing how this same dramatic in- stinct wrestled with lofty themes and sought expres- sion in amateur theatricals. There was the address of Hamlet to the players, representing Shakespeare's conception of the dignity and quality of acting as a fine art. And, in that wonderful farewell to magic, so impressively given at the very end of the Pageant, when all the groups of gaily clad players had dis- appeared and the elfin music so fittingly interpreted by the dainty Ariel had died into silence, a farewell to which the woodland scene, the soft rays of the setting sun, and the gathering quiet of the evening contributed an almost unearthly beauty, we were made to feel, as never before, the greatness of this magician to whom not only his dream-world of the stage but life itself was an illusion. Thus the Pag- eant not only re-created, in a measure, Shakespeare's England ; it also showed how the drama grew from the native soil like a flower, developing from rude expressions of the dramatic instinct into a rich and varied symbolism lying close to the root of our being. □ □n The remarkable development of the Summer School during the past few years should be a matter of pride to every alumnus of the University. Nine years ago the Summer School was reopened, after a short period of suspension, and enrolled 36 stu- dents. From this modest beginning it has grown in numbers, in reputation, and in efficiency until today it has come to be one of the big progressive Summer Schools of the South and one of the most effective agencies for the professional preparation of teachers to be found in this section of the country. The session of 1916 gives promise of eclipsing all previous records. The office of the Director up until the middle of May had been in communication with between 1,500 and 2,000 progressive teachers who had been sufficiently interested to write for informa- tion. Nearly 1,000 had up to this time expressed their purpose to attend the 1916 session. Plans have been made for 1,000, and it seems that the enroll- ment will be limited only by the town's accommoda- tions. THE SUMMER SCHOOL There are several reasons for this great increase in attendance and in popular favor. In the first place the Summer School has been quick to a sense of the teachers' needs and it has been quite sincerely sympathetic in its efforts to meet these needs by providing here at home a high grade of instruction at the lowest possible expense. Every dollar spent has been made to do the work of two. The teachers who attend have received the benefit of this economic administration, and they appreciate it. They know they have been helped. They become enthusiastic sup- porters not only of the Summer School but of the University. They have the uplifting consciousness that the University is working at the same big prob- lems that they are struggling with, that it under- stands and is willing and glad to strike hands with them in a common cause. The letters of approval and appreciation from city superintendents, county superintendents, high school principals, grade teach- ers in city schools, and teachers in one-room schools of the country districts that have come in to the office during the past few months would fill this issue of The Review. This interest and appreciation on the part of the school workers of the State constitutes the Summer School's greatest asset, and at the same time, one of the greatest assets of the University. TAR HEEL Editor, Alumni "Review. Sir: When this epithet was first applied to North Carolina soldiers in 1863 in the Army of Northern Virginia, they resented it as an insult. When Governor Vance visited that army in the spring of 1864, he began his address by saying he did not know how to address the soldiers. "I can not call yon fellow citizens because we do not live here; T can not call you fellow soldiers for while you are undergoing the hardships of camp life, I am com- fortably off at Raleigh with three meals a day, and T am not a soldier. So after thinking the matter over I have concluded to call you fellow Tarheels." This announcement for a moment or two did not meet with a very hearty response, but the soldiers soon caught on and responded with cheers, and since that time Tarheel has been regarded as a name to be honored and respected by all who love or admire North Carolina. I was witness to all that T have written. W. A. Graham, '60. Raleigh. N. C, April 12. 1916. THE ALUMNI REVIEW FIFTEEN SOUTHERN UNIVERSITIES 213 Figures of Interest From Government Reports— Read These Significant Facts Of the 15 State Universities in the South and Southwest in 1914-15, ten had larger total working incomes than the University of North Carolina, but only five had larger student bodies. Banking below North Carolina in total working income were: Alabama with $191,071 ; Florida with $140,014; New Mexico with $62,577; and South Carolina with $124,970 ; and ranking above us in total enrollment of students were Kentucky with 1,145 ; Oklahoma with 1,262 ; Tennessee with 988 ; Texas with 2,574 ; and Virginia with 946. These five states with larger student bodies had also larger working incomes. Virginia for instance, had a total working income of $560,258, and Texas $602,609. Our Small Working Income Our total income in 1914-15 was $220,661, and our rank in this particular was 11th. Thirty-four per cent of it was derived from student fees, productive funds, private benefactions and other similar sources, $75,661 all told. The balance $145,000 came from the State. Our working income per student was $245, and our rank in this particular among the 15 State Uni- versities was 12th. That is to say, eleven State uni- versities had larger working incomes per students ; Georgia 76 per cent larger, Misissippi 101 per cent larger, and Virginia 141 per cent larger. The work- ing income of the University of Arizona was more than five times that of the University of North Caro- lina. Among the 25 State universities and A. & M. col- leges in the South, the rank of our University in working income per student was 22nd. State Universities and A. and M.

M. Bell, A. S. Wheeler, T. F. Hickerson, and R. L. James, a circular entitled "Information on Student Employ- ment at the University of North Carolina." This circular contains so much information which should prove of interest and assistance to alumni in their co-operation with the University's work that it is reproduced almost in entirety herewith: The Challenge Hundreds of young men earn a portion of the ex- penses of their college course, by summer work, or by outside work in Chapel Hill during the college year. Many a graduate of the University, who has made his mark in college and since graduation, has been partly or wholly self-supporting while in college. Competition The first problem is the problem of competition. New students seeking work often have the idea that they belong to a very small group. This is far from true. Of the three hundred new men to enter this year, fifty per cent applied for work to help pay their expenses. A careful canvass made last year showed that seventy per cent of the whole student body earn- ed, during the summer or during the college session, a considerable part (over $50) of their expenses. The Chief Difficulty There was a time when it was unusual for a stu- dent to "work his way" through, in whole or in part. Now it is in no sense unusual. Neither success nor failure in it is uncommon, nor are the conditions of success mysterious. They are based in college on the same qualities that give success in the world outside. Determination, energy, patience, courage, initiative — these are some of the resources that get a in an through college, who starts without sufficient re- sources. A man who makes his living at the same time that he gets a college education is doing two things, either one of which is enough to take most of his time. It can be clone: but it requires extra effort or extra ability, or both. Something more intelligent and durable than a vague desire to get an education is necessary. A Surplus to Start Necessary In this fact, there is no discouragement for the man of true mettle. It simply brings him face to face with the question of how sincerely he wants an edu- cation, and how much effort he is willing to put forth to get it. The majority of the young men who want to work their way through college state that they have no training in any kind of expert labor, but that they are willing to do anything. The cur- rent pay for unskilled labor is from twelve to fifteen cents an hour. No student earning this rate of wages, as gardener, furnace-attendant, wood-chopper, waiter, or in a similar grade of work, can earn all of his expenses and have sufficient time left for study. By such labor, many students earn their board and lodging, and so supplement insufficient funds; but a student should not come to college expecting to make his way by low-priced labor. In general, a new man should have at least a hundred dollars that he can fall back on. There is less competition, of course, in the various kinds of expert labor. A man's prospects of success increase in proportion to his skill. A number of stu- dents are employed in clerical positions and in differ- ent forms of work involving stenography and type- writing. All sorts of agencies are held by students. No positions are in the gift of the President, and none of them can be assigned in advance. Applica- tions with recommendations may be addressed to the Secretary of the President, who will file them and turn them over to the Committee on Student Employ- ment, just before college opens in September. Borrowing Money A young man entering college hesitates to borrow money. He does not like to think of starting out after graduation with a debt hanging over him. He is right to hesitate : no man should incur a debt with- out careful deliberation. But he wants an education, and he has not the money. He must either borrow or give up his ambition, or spend a large part of the time he should give to the education he is seeking, in manual labor. He can better afford to buy his own time, rather than sell it on that basis. Study for self- mastery and for full self-development is the purpose of a college education and full attention to study will multiply the earning capacity of a student many times beyond the amount that he can earn. However, there is time for work,, and there are forms of money- producing work that do not interfere at all with study, and there are forms of work that interfere only slightly. Many of the best college students make a large part of their expenses during the college session. Swain Hall About fifty students will be employed next fall at Swain Hall, the college dining room, as waiters and kitchen helpers. These students will receive their board in return for this work. The selection for these positions is based upon the need of the student to earn part of his expenses, and upon his suitability for THE ALUMNI REVIEW 215 such work. These positions cannot be promised in advance. The method of assigning them is as follows: The Committee on Student Employment will meet to in- terview candidates for these positions Monday, Sep- tember 11, 1916, at 3 P. M. in Chemistry Hall. This is the day before the fall registration begins. No position will be assigned without a personal interview between the candidate and the Committee. The names of the students chosen for such positions will be posted on Monday evening, and work will begin on Tuesday morning, the first registration day. Information Regarding Expenses, Scholarships and Loans The cost of each of the two terms of the year is estimated as follows : Tuition $ 30.00 Law or Medicine, $35.00 Matriculation fees 15.00 Board 50.00 Laundry 5 . 1 >< I Room rent (with light and heat) 15.00 Books „ 10.00 $125.00 Scholarships There are no county scholarships. These were abolished by the legislature in 1885. There are a number of privately endowed scholarships that pay tuition in the academic department. Some of these are awarded by the donors, some by the President. Applicants for these should send (1) a certificate, showing their preparation, and (2) letters of testi- monial as to their need and their ability. Onder the State law, tuition in the academic de- partment is given to those who agree to teach two years after leaving college, and to sons of ministers. Notes are given, signed by the student and his parent, certifying to the agreement to teach. No Scholarships in Professional Schools No student should apply for a scholarship who can afford to pay tuition. If he succeeds in getting a scholarship he thereby prevents a student who can- not pay from getting a scholarship. The University has many more applications for scholarships from needy students than it can supply. Loans The University has two loan funds from which it is able to help worthy students. Loans from the Deems Lund are made for two years, at six per cent; from the Martin Fund for one year, at four per cent. Applications for loans should be made before August 15. The notes must have two good securities. The borrower should get a letter from the clerk of court or the register of deeds, stating that the securities are good. Not over fifty dollars can be borrowed any one term, and two hundred dollars is the limit for any one student. It is better for a student to borrow at home, on a note given to a relative or friend, if such an arrangement is possible. A College Education As An Investment To the young man without means the question of whether it is a wise investment to put four years of his life in a college education is of the greatest pos- sible importance. lie should consider the cost; he should consider the possible return in income and in- creased influence ami capacity to realize the durable satisfactions of life. No one can predict confidently what a college education will mean to any other man. But the figures gathered by reliable investigators will be of help. Dr. Wm. T. Harris, U. S. Commissioner for the Bureau of Education, found as the result of an exhaustive investigation that the average wage of a non-college man at twenty years was $10 per week. This average wage increased till the age of twenty- six, when it reached a maximum of $15.5(1 per week. The average wage of the college man at twenty-two is $25 ; at thirty it is $45 per week, after which it continues to advance. According to this investigation, each year in col- lege adds $136.50 to a man's yearly earning capacity, or interest on $2,250. These figures are given for what they may be thought to be worth. Numerous other investigations have shown with equal emphasis that, based on in- come return, a college education, genuinely pursued, produces a tremendous interest return. If it costs $350 per year to go to college, and if to this lie added the $650 that might be earned if the student went into business, the total cost of the college year, as an investment, would be $1,000. The student's earning capacity would have to be increased only $00 for each year he is in college, to make this a six per cent in- vestment. It may be said with assurance that this is a safe financial venture, and not only so, but that other and more vital returns are so great as make even this financial return the least important con- sideration. The Choice of a College Students who decide; to go to college should give the most thoughtful attention to their choice of a college. Students and parents often let the most trivial con- siderations determine the selection of a college. A difference of twenty-five dollars in the cost: the promise of a place that pays fifty dollars a year; the promise of a scholarship worth thirty dollars a term will determine the question without thought of pos- sible difference in /In' quality and worth of what the student is seeking. The student should decide on in- telligent grounds, after careful study where it is best for him to go for his training, and go there. He cannot afford to give up the big things he wants for a -mall job or for a scholarship. 216 THE ALUMNI REVIEW THE SHAKESPEARE PAGEANT Entire Chapel Hill Community Joins in Commemorating the Tercentenary of Shakespeare's Death The Development of the Great English Drama Shown— The England of Shakespeare's Day and the Poet's Conception of His Art Portrayed The campus of the University on Tuesday, May 9, was the scene of certainly the most spectacular, and perhaps the most interesting and instructive event of the college year, — the Shakespeare Pageant. Gor- geous costumes, brilliant music, graceful dances and skillful acting transported everyone back to the "spacious times of great Elizabeth." Fairies, elves, sprites, milkmaids, halberdiers, clowns, shepherds and shepherdesses, courtly lords and ladies, vied with one another in arousing the interest and enthusiasm of the spectators. Queen Elizabeth appeared, at- tended by her court : merry Jack Falstaff bantered with Prince Hal, as they drank sack in Dame Quick- ly's tavern ; the melancholy Dane gave grace and dignity to the occasion, Touchstone convulsed the crowd with his antics, and the wily Autolycus proved that a "merry heart goes all the way." Shepherds and shepherdesses tripped it on the greensward, and lads and their dears frolicked around the may-pole. Time truly rolled back three hundred years. Not only did the pageant reveal sixteenth cen- tury life, but it afforded an object lesson in the way the great English Drama grew up and developed, from the rude merrymakings, such as the sheep-shear- ing festival, where dancing and ballad-singing were indulged in, through the crude performances of ama- teurs, baffled by the many problems of stage realism, to the perfected drama of the great poet, a symbol of life itself. The program was designed to show this evolution, beginning as it did with children's singing games and dances, continuing with a rural scene from "A Winter's Tale," then a tavern scene from Hen- ry IV, and the final dismissal of Falstaff by the yoirng Henry V, a scene representative of the interest in the early chronicle play. Tieck's "The Midsummer Night," which shows the boy, Shakespeare, as he wanders into the forest amid the fairy beings of his own creation, is illustrative of the sixteenth century interest in legends and fairy lore, — which the poet turned to such good account in his own "Midsummer Night's Dream." The burlesque rehearsal and performance of Py- ramus and Thisbe reveals the difficulties against which amateur actors had to struggle, as well as the interest of the proletariat in dramatic performances. The conventionalities and ineptitudes of professional acting are revealed in Hamlet's advice to the players. Here also Shakespeare gives us his ideas of serious and effective acting. The program fittingly closed with Prospero's "Farewell to Magic," from "The Tempest," most probably Shakespeare's last dramatic production. The purpose of this scene was well summarized in the program: "As the earlier parts of our program have represented some of the contemporary elements of which the Shakespearian drama is composed, — folk belief and custom, the life of Elizabethan Eng- land in both country and town, a national conscious- ness centering in the person of the sovereign, and finally the eager interest of the period in all manner of performances, so the present scenes from "The Tempest" illustrate the action of the creative imagi- nation, which transforms experience into poetry and 'bodies forth the forms of things unknown.' " It is impossible not to see in Prospero Shakespeare him- self, in full control of the powers of creative art. The program of the performance was as follows: /. Prologue 11. Shakespeare's England The Country A Rural Merrymaking — From The Winter's Tale. Touchstone and His Country Lass — From As You Like It. The Fairies — Tieck's The Midsummer Night. The City The Tavern : Falstaff the Braggart — From / Henry IV. The Nation Prince Hal Becomes Henry the King — From // Henry IV. III.

A May-Pole Dance In addition to the above scenes from the plays suit- able music was rendered by the University glee club and orchestra, and also by a chorus of ladies under the direction of Mrs. A. S. Wheeler. Two of the dances were trained by Mrs. P. H. Winston, who also gave valuable assistance in directing the music for the occasion. The Chapel Hill Graded School rendered the fairy scene — Tieck's "The Midsummer Night" — in a most pleasing manner, and further added to the attractiveness of the program with oc- THE ALUMNI REVIEW 217 HAMLETS ADVICE TO THE PLAYERS SCENE FROM A MIDSUMMER NIGHTS DREAM B -•••--. •■ IfiH tM ■ * -. . ARIEL si) U'l I.I.I A M ■2 IS THE ALUMNI REVIEW casional dances. The other scenes were performed by members of the faculty and student body of the University, assisted by ladies of the town. The pageant began with a grand procession from Memorial Hall across the north end of the campus, to the section of the campus adjoining the arboretum. Here a sqiiare on the lawn had been roped off to serve as a stage. The slope of the campus here afforded a very effective amphitheatre, while the thick growth of the arboretum offered a charming background. More than 1,200 people gathered for the perform- ance, many from outside of Chapel Hill. Procession Ready Promptly at 2 :30 Tuesday afternoon the shrill note of the clarinet informed the waiting hundreds of onlookers that the procession was ready to start. Never before have the hoary landmarks of the University campus witnessed such a spectacle. The procession, headed by the cornet, Irvin Parker, and the chief marshal, T. A. Jones, Jr., was peopled with the men, women, and children of Shakespeare's time, and with the characters drawn from his plays. In one group marched Queen Elizabeth and her maids of honor, Prince Hal and courtiers, and the Lord Chief Justice of England ; in the second group were to be found the boy Shakespeare, Hamlet, Caliban, Prospero, Ariel, Touchstone, Autolycus, Quince and his company of mechanicals, shepherds and shep- herdesses, milkmaids and clowns, and innumerable elves, bees, butterflies and fairies. The clanking of swords, the shrill note of the clarinet, and the quaint Elizabethan costumes easily carried the audience back three hundred years to the time when the great bard of Stratford lived amid these very surroundings. The procession, as indicated above, was divided into two groups. In the first came, in order named : two crimson heralds; ten halberdiers; Queen Eliza- beth, four canopy bearers, and two pages; maids of honor, four court ladies ; Prince Hal and courtiers ; and Lord Chief Justice with two train bearers. In the second group marched: two white heralds; the boy Shakespeare; rest of Prince Hal's group; Tempest group; Hamlet; Winter's Tale group, and Touchstone; shepherds, shepherdesses, milkmaids, and clowns ; Kate Greenaways, Dame Wenlock, and villagers ; Midsummer Night's Dream group ; Theseus and Hippolyta last ; Puck ; Ariel ; Oberon and two train bearers; Titania and two train bearers; bees and butterflies; white fairies; flowers, and jack in the pulpits. Performance Opens The performance opened with a group of action songs by children of the public schools. This was followed by a presentation of selected scenes from "A Winter's Tale." The opcasion was a sheep-shear- ing festival, when the rustics gathered in the autumn to celebrate the completion of the year's work and make merry with their lasses on the greensward. The first episode showed a bumpkin shepherd (Wil- liam Wright) on his way to town to make the pur- chases for the feast, duped and relieved of his heavy purse by a clever rogue of the highway named Au- tolucus (Buck Wimberley). The scene then changed to the lawn before an old shepherd's cottage, where the sheep-shearing is in progress. First came the love scene between Prince Florizel (impersonated by Bruce Webb) and the sup- posed daughter of the old shepherd (Miss Mary Hen- derson). The lovers are interrupted by the entrance of the shepherd (Mr. R. H. Thornton) and two strangers — Camillo (E. Knox Proctor) and Polixenes (John Huske), as well as several of the revelers. In order to amuse the strangers the shepherd in- troduced into this scene the dance of the shepherds and shepherdesses, and of the eight and twenty milk- maids. In the midst of the jollity Autolycus appears, dis- guised as a pedlar and ballad monger. Wimberloy's impersonation of the dual role of rogue and pedlar was extremely clever. The next scene was taken from "As You Like It." In this ludicrous episode town and country are brought grotesquely into contrast. Touchstone (Mr. Edgar Long), a court jester, falls in love with a simple-hearted country girl, Audrey, (Miss Nell Battle). Audrey is also loved by a bumpkin named William (Barber Towler), who, however, is driven into precipitous flight by the threats and strange language of Touchstone. Mr. Long's imper- sonation of Touchstone was excellent and elicited thunderous applause from the audience. Children Give Scene The fairy scene from A Midsummer Night's Dream was given by the children of the Chapel Hill public school. The boy Shakespeare (Sam Buice) is here imagined to have strayed into fairy-land and met some of the creatures of his art. After indulging in a dance, the fairies find the sleeping Shakespeare. Titania, their queen (Dorothy Greenlaw), scatters the perfume of certain flowers over him and conse- crates him as the greatest of all poets; Oberon breathes inspiration into him; and Puck a merry humor. The music for this scene was furnished by THE ALUMNI REVIEW 219 a concealed chorus, directed by Mrs. A. S. Wheeler. At the close of the fairy scene a double quartette from the University Glee Club rendered "Hark, Hark, the Lark." The next two scenes, taken from Henry IV, pres- ent incidents in the life of Henry V, the hero sover- eign of England. In the first scene he is shown as the madcap Prince Hal amid the gaities of the tavern life, just after the Gadshill robbery. The principal characters in this scene were: Prince Hal (imper- sonated by Dr. J. M. Booker) ; Falstaff (Charles Cog-gin) ; Mistress Quickly (Miss Maude Minish) ; Poins (Walter M. Matthews') ; Bardolph (Francis Clarkson); Peto (Ernest Neiman) ; Nym (I. H Butt). In the next scene Falstaff goes to congratulate his companion upon his assumption of the kingship, never doubting that he will be royally received. But the Prince in assuming the kingship has also assumed a new dignity and refuses to have anything to do with his old friend. New characters introduced into this scene are: the Lord Chief Justice of England (T. C. Linn) and Pistol (Albert Oettinger). In his impersonation of Falstaff in these two scenes, Charles Coggin, for four years a star in Uni- versity dramatics, reached the zenith of his success. Dr. Booker, as Prince Hal, was also especially good. Shakespeare and His Art The second part of the program dealt with Shakes- peare and his art. The rehearsal and performance at court of the mock play of Pyramus and Thisbe illustrated how the common people presented their little dramatic ideas. These scenes from a play in which "there is not one word apt, not one player fitted" were more or less dominated by Prof. G. M. McKie, who impersonated Quince Tuesday afternoon, but who in rehearsals, impersonated each of the six roles in order to show what each of the players was to do. Robert House, as Bully Bottom, without previous dramatic experi- ence, rose to the occasion in a surprising manner, and has received much commendation for his interpreta- tion. The other characters represented in these scenes were: Snug (W. H. Stephenson); Flute (Dougald McMillan); Snout (B. L. Meredith); Starveling (W. T. Steele): King Theseus (.J. G. Cowan ) ; Queen Hippolyta (Mrs. R. L. James) ; Lysander (J. G. Ramsey) ; Philostrate (W. B. Pitts); Demetrius 'James I.. Harrison); Hermia (.Mi— Winnie MeGlamery) ; Helena I Miss Eleanor Wilson ). The absurdities of amateur acting have their coun- terpart in the ineptitudes, conventionalities, and ex- cesses of the professional stage. In Hamlet's address to the company of strolling players who are to pre- sent a tragedy before the King of Denmark, Shakes- peare gives final expression to the ideal of the actor's art. Hamlet was represented by Prof. W. S. Bern- ard. The final scene denoted Shakespeare's farewell to magic. It was taken from The Tempest and was in a way the most beautiful scene in the pageant. The character impersonations were masterfully done. Miss Curtis Henderson as Ariel was the star of the scene. The other characters represented were : Pros- pero (Dr. W. M. Dey) ; Miranda (Miss Gypsie Bar- ton) ; Caliban (J. A. Capps) ; Ferdinand (Mr. Edgar Turlington) ; Alonzo (Mr. H. M. Dargan). The festival was closed with a double May-pole dance by the children of the Chapel Hill schools. Tuesday evening a fancy dress ball was given in the gymnasium. Future Celebrations The Shakespearean celebration at the University last Tuesday will probably result in the presentation of a May-day festival on the campus every year. No definite plan has yet been worked out ; but, according to Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, head of the Department of English, the festival will embody the essential pag- eant features — action songs, folk dances, and child- ish games — in the afternoon and a communal play in the evening. A play that has already been sug- gested for next year is "A New Way to Pav Old Debts." "The communal pageant idea," declared Dr. Green- law, "is the real way to stimulate the forces that are to produce the great American drama of the future. But before anything worth while can be derived from such festival, the people must feel that the drama is an expression of themselves." The pageant last Tuesday served as an excellent illustration of this point. It was an object lesson of how the great English drama grew up. And, it was as truly a product of the Chapel Hill community, and folk as was the drama of Shakespeare's time. A Community Production The celebration had no professional coach, but was spontaneous. And every part of the college commun- ity was represented by the three hundred volunteer participants in the celebration. It was a communal event and represented the interest manifest by every section of the community in Shakespeare and in the tercentenary celebration of his death. Inasmuch as the pageant was a community affair, the sueecs.s was due to the interest and active co-op- eration of each of the three hundred participants. 220 THE ALUMNI REVIEW Especial credit, however, is due the English Depart- ment of the University for their constant and tireless work in coaching the players; to Mesdames Archi- bald Henderson and J. H. Pratt who directed the costuming (one of the most brilliant features of the occasion) ; to Mrs. P. H. Winston for the various folk dances ; to Mrs. A. S. Wheeler and Earle Harris for the Shakespearean music; to the faculty of the Chapel Hill public schools for their work with the school children ; and to Dr. A. S. Wheeler and Dr. Geo. Howe for their work in raising funds with which to secure costumes. THE REUNION OF 1911 The Review publishes herewith a final letter con- cerning the big reunion which the class of 1911 will hold at the approaching commencement. This is from Mr. W. A. Dees, of Goldsboro, president of the class: I notice in the last several issues of the Review articles, by members of the class of 1911, bearing upon the characteristics and policies of that class and seeking to inspire and encourage every member of the class to return to the "Hill" for the five-year reunion on May the 29th and 30th. I was glad to see these articles, and I trust they have borne fruit in the way of making the approaching reunion of the class of 1911 the largest, most enjoyable, and most profitable class reunion every staged on the "Hill." It is not my purpose to attempt to write any lengthy article in continuation of the series I have referred to; but I think it well, if you will be kind enough to allow it, for some one to call attention, in your May Issue, to the increasing interest and enthusiasm manifested by the class of 1911 in its coming reunion. Suffice it to say that we all intend to be there. Furthermore, there are some facts about the class of 1911 that might be of interest to all University Alumni. In the first place, at the time it entered (1907), the class of 1911 was by far the largest ever to enter the University, having, if I remember cor- rectly, 234 members the first year. Of course this number diminished from year to year, but by a less percentage than any other class ever decreased, for we came out in 1911 with exactly 100 graduates, which is by far the largest number ever to graduate in one class at the University even up to this good hour. The boys of 1911 had, therefore, the "stick- ing" quality beyond the average. In addition to the distinction in numbers, the class was also marked by the harmony that always prevailed in it and by the high average ability of its members. It was in this class that the feeling sometimes existing between the different college elements was completely forgot- ten and the finest sort of fellowship reigned instead. It was a thoroughly democratic group of fellows, and merit, wherever found, was never ignored. The class furnished quotas, according to its size, to every col- lege activity. We had scholars, debaters, journalists, social artists, and athletes ; and yet perhaps no class ever had fewer outstanding "stars." Every man was a man of metal, and none were of mean ability. Ev- ery man did something, so that no one man, even no few men, did or had to do a great deal; and yet hardly any class can show greater achievements. We had a strong force of men, all qualified to be leaders. We had every sort of personality from Cy Thompson to Rube Oliver, and the whole line was pleasing. We had such a class that it could not have done its work without every member. Every one was essential when we were in college to make our class complete ; every one is essential now to make our reunion complete, together with all the wives and babies we can boast of. Come and bring 'em. Two things every member of 1911 learned and now practices : We each learned to love all the others and to love and cherish our University. As exem- plifying that knowledge, let's every one get together once more on May 29th and 30th, and again drink from the rejuvenating well and revel in the "Classic Shades." 1915 CLASS NOTES B. L. Field, of Oxford, secretary of the class of 1915, sends the Review the following news notes ami reports that prospects are splendid for 1915's having the biggest one-year reunion ever held on the "Hill": James Hughes, ex-15, is taking work at a business college in Baltimore. Or. A. Martin is principal of Abbottsburg high school. Outlaw Hunt, ex-15-teener, is connected with the Imperial Tobacco Company and is at present located in Oxford. Preston Epps was given splendid encouragement and recognition of the quality of his voice by Pas- quale Amato, the great baritone, upon his recent visit to Raleigh. The class of '15 recognized this a few years ahead of Pasquale. B. B. Holder has been teaching at Stovall during the past year. His school closed during the past week and he has now gone to his home near Winston. J. V. Whitfield has recently been initiated into the order of matrimony and we trust that he will bring his bride with him to the reunion exercises so that we can give them both the glad hand. Good luck to you, Whit! Due notice is hereby served that all members of the class not answering to their names when the roll THE ALUMNI REVIEW 221 is called at the smoker on Monday night, May 29, will be fined an amount equal to that which would have paid the absent member's expenses to the Hill. Thus you will not save by remaining away. Come and bring another fifteener with you. Write Dan Bell at Chapel Hill of your intentions so that he may have the kind of cigars you like.

THE '86 REUNION Indications are that the thirty-year reunion of the class of 1886 will be one of the interesting feat- ures of commencement. Expressions from various members of this class confirm the belief that the attendance will be large. A few letters received by the alumni organization committee are as follows: "It is my intention to be present, and it will af- ford me genuine pleasure to meet my class-mates and other University friends." — II. W. Jacksox. Richmond, Va. "I am delighted to know that the class of '86 is to have a reunion this year. I shall take pleasure in communicating with such members of the class as I ';ni get in touch with and shall urge them to at- tend." — W. 1S T . Everett. Rockingham, N. C. "I am in hearty accord with the reunion idea ami will be glad to co-operate in any way possible look- ing towards making the reunion of 'S6 the 'greatest ever.' " — John M. Moeehead. Charlotte, X. ( !. "I will do all that I can to advance the reunion." — Stephen B. Weeks. Washington. 1). C. "I hope it will be possible for me to attend this meeting and will make an effort to do so." — J. Beyaw Chimes. Raleigh. A'. C. "It will give me a great deal of pleasure to attend the reunion of the class of '86 at the approaching com- mencement. Count on me. I hope the reunion will prove a great success. I am hungry to meet my obi classmates once more — not more than five of them have I seen in 30 years." — Lewis J. Battle. Washington, I >. C. 222 THE ALUMNI REVIEW ALUMNI DAY Tuesday, May 30th, is Alumni Day, and we want to make it the biggest, happiest day of commence- ment ! In addition to the Alumni address and class re- unions there will be a general alumni conference from 12 to 1 :30. The object of this conference is to give the alumni a chance to tell the University what they think, and give the University a chance to tell the alumni how they can have an active part in its work. Don't miss it ! It will be informal. After this conference there will be the alumni luncheon. This will be better than usual — in fact, it will be as good as you want it. You remember the luncheon last year. It was a tremendous success. Four hundred attended and some couldn't get seats because they forgot to get tickets. There will be five or six hundred this year. There will be a cabaret performance between courses by the students and the stars from reunion classes, and an orchestra, and singing by everybody. If you've got a good time in you, you will have the chance to turn it loose. The price is $1.00 per cover, the cost of the service. Ladies are invited. Send E. R. Rankin, Secretary, the money for whatever reservations you want. Be sure to do this right now. If you are prevented from coming you can get the dollar 'back. As far as possible the committee will furnish lodging for the alumni. But in order to do this the committee will have to know that you are coming. Don't let anything stop you. Come back now and get in touch with the college. Obey that impulse. Big things are under way and you want to be "in"' on them. E. R. Rankin, W. S. Bernard.. Collier Cobb. CAROLINA WINS AND LOSES In the triangular debate between Carolina, Vir- ginia, and Johns Hopkins, held April 22nd, Carolina was victorious over Virginia by a unanimous de- cision but lost to Johns Hopkins. Carolina's repre- sentatives against Virginia were F. F. Bradshaw and T. W. Ruffin, who upheld the affirmative of the query : Resolved, That our Federal Government should compel every able bodied citizen between the ages of 18 and 24 years, to take nnder adequate pro- vision, one year of military or naval training." Carolina's representatives against Johns Hopkins were R. F. Crouse and C. R. Edney. who defended the negative side of the query. These debates were held on neutral ground, Caro- lina and Virginia meeting at Baltimore, Carolina and Johns Hopkins meeting at Charlottesville and Virginia and Johns Hopkins meeting at Chapel Hill. The decision in the debate at Chapel Hill went to Johns Hopkins.

G. deRouliiac — ''Party Polities in North Carolina." (The James Sprunt Histor- ical Publications, Vol. 15, Numbers 1 and 2. 212 pages. Published under the direction of the North Carolina Historical Society. Chapel Hill, N C.) In this issue of The James Sprunt Historical Publications Dr. Hamilton has put in permanent and easily accessible form a series of "studies in North Carolina political history" which appeared origin- ally in the Sunday issues of the Charlotte Observer from March 21 to August 22, 1915. It is interest- ing and encouraging to note that he regards "the entire investigation simply as a preliminary to fu- ture work in the same field," — encouraging because of the implied promise in this statement of a fuller work to come to which those who read the present "studies" will look forward with keen interest. However, students of North Carolina history would err greatly in taking too seriously the half apologetic "Foreword" with which Dr. Hamilton introduces his work to the public. He has perform- ed a valuable service in an hitherto neglected field and there is no occasion for apology. He has done his work well and it deserves the permanent form which he has given to it. Beginning with the "Political Significance of the Convention of 1835," Dr. Hamilton traces the rise and development of parties and party issues in North Carolina until the disappearance of all the old party lines under the pressure of civil war in 1860. Parties in the modern sense of that term came into being with the amendment to the constitution which took the election of the governor from the Legislature and gave it to the people. This was one of the most permanent and most beneficial of the constitutional reforms of 1835. Party government was necessarily accompanied by party issues and the State-wide po- litical campaign with its appeal directly to the voters. Of necessity such an appeal had to be made largely on issues of State-wide interest, and resulted in the formulation for the first time in our history of a State policy. Before thh change State elections were decided almost exclusively upon national issues. Of the election of 1830, Dr. Hamilton says: "local issues had no part in the choice of candidate and the candi- dates appealed for support on the ground of the strength of their loyalty to the presidential candidates of their respective parties." In accepting the nomi- nation for governor, Edward B. Dudley "said noth- ing whatever about State issues or the needs of the State, but devoted nearly all the space of his letter to denunciation of Van Buren." In this custom wholly subordinating the interests of the State to the interests of the leaders of the national parties may be found largely the cause of the stagnation in political, social, economic, industrial and intellectual life which was so characteristic of North Carolina during the first third of the nineteenth century. The election of the governor by the people introduced much violence, rawness, passion and demagogery into North Carolina politics, but it aroused the people from their lethargy and invited their attention to matters of vital interest. Speaking of the "dema- gogery of the worst type" that characterized the cam- paign of 1810, Dr. Hamilton says: "There is much that is bad about it all, but no student of the period can fail to see that at its worst it was better than the apathy and localism which had formerly prevailed. All of it is significant in that it marked the growth of a new sort of democracy which was at least inter- ested." The State elections were held in August and followed in November by the national elections. Dr. Hamilton notes as especially significant that in 1844 the vote in the presidential election was nearly 20,000 smaller than the vote in the State election, — a remarkable circumstance for that day, — and says : "The only explanation seems to be that the people at last were taking a greater interest in State than in national elections." This was a decided step forward in North Caro- lina. As a result of it such issues as public schools, internal improvements, railroads, a safe and sane banking system, free suffrage, ad valorem taxation were discussed before the people. These discussions, THE ALUMNI REVIEW 225 iu spite of the campaign absurdities with which they were accompanied, were distinctly educational. The people, awakened to a sense of their needs, their pos- sibilities, their power, forced their timid political leaders, so-called, to adopt a progressive program which resulted in the common school system, the North Carolina Railroad, the abolition of a prop- erty qualification for suffrage, the School for the Deaf, and other forward movements. The tide of emigration from North Carolina was checked and the State entered upon a career of progress and prosper- ity unequalled among the slave States of the Union. Dr. Hamilton has interspersed his narrative with brief biographical sketches of such political leaders as Willie P. Mangum, Bedford Brown, William A. Graham, George E. Badger, David S. Reid, Edward B. Dudley, and many others famous in our political history. These sketches add variety and interest to the work. The author points out the influence of the press in interesting accounts of such papers as the Raleigh Register, The North Carolina Standard, The Fai/etteriUe Observer. There were no newspapers in those days. The newspapers so-called were in reality party organs, little concerned in the dissemination of news, but intent solely upon the propagation of po- litical views and the advancement of the fortunes of political parties. Summarizing the results of party government from 1835 to 1860, Dr. Hamilton says: "The State in 1835 was decadent; in 1860 it was steadily moving forward. One can almost believe that the very na- ture of the people was being changed. The rapidly growing expenditure of public money for internal improvements and public education was heartily ap- proved by the majority of the people. Conservative they still were, but they were awake and from eco- nomic progress were looking to intellectual and po- litical progress. The future was bright and the hor- rors of the war and of reconstruction are intensified to the student of North < 'arolina history because of the wonderful educational work that they interrupted, the progressive spirit that they stifled, and the faith in the future that they destroyed." The author's style is simple and easy; his judg- ment just ; and his conclusions well considered. To the volume is appended a bibliography of "source material," embracing twenty items, and "sec- ondarv material" embracing twenty-three titles. R. D. W. Cox xor:. '99. Raleigh, N. C. BOOKS ON GEOLOGY BY N. C. MEN The American Year Book for 1915 gives in its section on Mineralogy and Petrography two reviews of special interest to Carolina men. Gems and Precious Stones. (Mem. Nat. Acad. Sci.) The literature of this branch of mineralogy lias been enriched by the publication of an exten- sive monograph on the turquois by Joseph E. Pogue, '06. Professor of Geology, Northwestern University, (Evanston, 111.) In the chapters dealing with the mineralogy, the occurrence and the origin of turquois the writer has collected an array of facts rhe number and variety of which are well attested by the multitudinous foot notes. The monograph is illustrated by 22 plates which show chiefly the archaeological and ethnological uses of turquois and reproduce specimens from the collections of the U. S. National Museum, the Field Museum, the British Museum and the India Museum. Textbooks. — The pocket dictionary of Common Rocks and Rock Mineral-, prepared and published in 1914 by Prof. Collier Cobb of the University of North ("arolina has already gone into the second edition. The first edition of Professor Cobb's little book was listed in 1914 in the section of Dynamical and Structural Geology as one of the five books of tin- year. Ir meets the demands for a small hand- book which will furnish to college students of geology concise definitions of the terms to be met with in their professional reading, such words as atmogenic, arkose, bradyseism, bysmalith, chonolith, dreikanter, eutectic, femic, etc.. testifying to the scope, thor- oughness and modernity of the work. Although the author has taken pains to point out that il was designed primarily for his own students, it seems to adapt itself to a considerable wider field. DR. HENDERSON LECTURES ( )n April l'7, Dr. Archibald Henderson delivered the principal address, on "The Founding of Nash- ville." before the Mississippi Valley Historical As- sociation at it- annual convention, in Nashville, Term.

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 you 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 nearlv the great love and gratitude that I 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. Can you afford not to be in this? Of course you will eventually; but why not now?
