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 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.

forting benefits — now. See or write the old, old

Within the new few weeks the University, in co- 
operation with the State Board of Health, will in- 
augurate a new phase of extension 

TENSION DE- WOrk that is ori S iual and ful1 of 
VELOPMENT splendid promise. It is a post-grad- 
uate course in medicine for practic- 
ing physicians, to be given in the home towns of the 

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- 

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. 


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 



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.

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- 


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. 


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.

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 

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- 

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.

The Day's Work and What it Means— A Frank Statement About Student Employment and Help for 

Those Who Need it in the University of North Carolina 

The University lias just issued through the self- 
help committee of the faculty, Professors J. 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. 


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 



such work. These positions cannot be promised in 

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 


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. 


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- 

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. 



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:

IV. 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-

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- 

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- 

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 



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 

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- 

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 

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 

"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. 



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 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

the class not answering to their names when the roll 



is called at the smoker on Monday night, May 29,

Bell at Chapel Hill of your intentions so that he 
may have the kind of cigars you like. 


Great preparations are being made on the "Hill''

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

"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.

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.

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. 


Editors of the University Magazine and the Yack- 
ety Yach for the coming year have been elected by 
the two societies, as follows : Magazine, J. A. Capps, 
editor-in-chief; C. L. Snider, A. M. Lindau, M. B. 
Fowler, W. T. Steele, Moses Rountree, A. M. Coates, 
associate editors; V. F. Williams, business manager. 
Yackety Yach, J. R. Patton. Jr., editor-in-chief; E.

G. Baity, E. L. Mackie, H. S. Clark, associate edi- 
tors; W. B. Austin, business manager. Several as- 
sociate editors and a second business manager are yet 
to be elected by the fraternities.

Hamilton, J. 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, 



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.

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
