OCTOBER, 1916 

Number 1 



The University opened on September fourteenth, 
under circumstances that were in every respect ideal. 
The weather ( an important factor 
in a college opening) was perfect, 
the attendance, despite floods, higher entrance stan- 
dards, wars and rumors of wars, was beyond any pre- 
vious mark, and the spirit of the returning students, 
not only inspiringly tine, but spontaneously so. It 
is this last fact that is by all odds the outstanding 
mark of real progress in the University's life. Tbe 
old tradition that a man had to qualify as a Univer- 
sity man through a period of more or less rowdy irre- 
sponsibility has been ended, not by imposition of new 
wiles, but apparently by the evolution of a new spirit. 
-'Eleven- hundred and fifty students are now registered. 
They came from every corner of the State, from 
■ every sort of environment, with every sort of pur- 
pose; but the spirit of the place — what the Germans 
call "sittlichkeit," the system of habitual conduct, 
ethical rather than legal, which embraces all those 
obligations that it is bad form or "not the thing" to 
do — the spirit of the place caught their youthful 
miscellaneousness in a sure and sympathetic grasp, 
lifted their individualism to its higher levels, and 
moulded the motley crowd into the unified outlines 
of a- true University community. 


The opening of what is called "the regular" term 
brings a strong sudden thrill of new life through the 
University's veins — there is no 
doubt about that; but as a mat- 
ter of fact, the summer is not the 
■siesta for Alma Mater that it used to be. She does 
not -dream in solitude under the Davie Poplar, wait- 
ing the return of her sons, and she is not altogether 
comfortless and lonely in their absence. The Uni- 
versity plant was running this summer on almost 
full time and full capacity. The feeling that educa- 
tional investments are idle twenty-five per cent of 
the time, or running at greatly reduced speed and 
value of output, does not apply here. The Summer 
School registered about a thousand and fifty. It has 
Q ceased to be considered a by-product of the work of 
q tlic University, and has developed into its true place 

C^ as an organic part of it. No single collection of ] - 



pie in the State repay so handsomely the investment 
made in them as the teachers who spend their vaca- 
tions and their savings in an effort to give better ser- 
vice in the public schools. 

The fact that over three hundred students were 
taking courses counting for credit toward degrees has 
led to the suggestion that the summer session for these 
courses be extended to eight weeks. 


There are now active summer schools in the State 

at Greenville, Greensboro, Boone, Cullowhee, and 

Chapel Hill. For next summer

are under the auspices of state in- 
stitutions, and the Review rejoices in all of them, 
because it believes they are all enlisted in the great 
common cause of improving educational conditions 
in the State. It believes that there should be a num- 
ber of summer schools because it believes that the 
needs of certain sections and of certain special pur- 
poses can best be served so ; but it also believes that 
there should be a summer school that serves the State 
as a whole, and serves it in such a way that the 
teachers need not go out of the State for the highest 
quality of instruction, and will be able to get college 
degrees through successive summers of study. To es- 
tablish firmly such a summer college for teachers re- 
quires all conditions to be favorable: it requires an 
intelligent, vital, consistent policy; it requires money; 
it requires an adequate plant and a satisfactory en- 
vironment; it requires, -above all else, that the sum- 
mer school question be considered not as a competi- 
tive struggle of institutions and localities, but as an 
educational concern of the whole State, t, Whatever 
the need of the Stale as a whole is, should be a part 
of the aim of each part of the system, and cooperated 
in heartily. The University Summer School under 
the leadership of Professor X. W. Walker, has grown 
from a mere handful to one of the three largest sum- 
mer schools in the South. The reason for its growth 
is simple and fundamental: it lias Keen directed with 
a sympathetic and complete understanding of the 

beachers' need-,, and it has successfully met the com- 
plex difficulties that confronted it. In the fare of 



the invaluable service that the school has rendered, 
and the overwhelming testimony of its success, it 
would be a tragic pity for it to have to curtail its 
work or cease to grow because, as has been repeatedly 
said in the State press, "it cannot take care of those 
who want to go." It is one of the greatest single 
assets of the State, and its healthful growth should 
not only not be hampered, but should be encouraged 
in every possible way. 


In addition to the specific activities of the Summer 
School, the University and its faculty were busily 
occupied throughout the summer. 
A distinguished visitor in June, 
the head of one of the national 
scientific societies found four laboratories actively 
engaged in research work. The postgraduate course 
in medicine was given in cooperation with the State 
Board of Health in twelve towns in the State. This 
work, which began in June, continued until Septem- 
ber twenty-third, a period of sixteen weeks, with 
weekly lectures and clinics in each town. The 
courses were given by two specialists, and were at- 
tended by one hundred and eighty-five doctors. The 
U. S. Bureau of Education, in Washington, and the 
Institute of Public Service called special attention 
to the value of the work. A Country Church ( '(in- 
ference and a High School Conference were held in 
Chapel Hill. A large proportion of the faculty spent 
the summer in various sorts of educational, scienti- 
fic, literary, and social service activities. 


Thursday, October twelfth, is the next great day 
on the University calendar. It marks the one hun- 
dred and twenty-second birthday of 

DA^CTOBER J 1 '" V°™?*> -V'V 6 ^ 
TWELFTH brated m hearty fashion by every 

alumnus, everywhere, without ex- 
ception. In centers of population outside of the State 
and in every town in North Carolina we trust there 
will be a banquet or a smoker. The arrangements for 
this meeting should be immediately perfected. Any 
interested alumnus may call together a committee of 
two or three men to undertake the arrangements, 
make up the programme, and see that the alumni 
come out. 

As to what the programme should be, and as to 
how informal or formal, the Review has no fixed 
opinion. It believes, however, that for one thing, 
some alumnus, or several alumni, should make a 
statement of what the University is doing, and of the 
growth of its work, and that plans should be con- 

sidered for helping forward that work locally and in 
the State and nation at large. One point worth em- 
phasizing at all times is that the University is not 
merely the institution of the alumni, but of the whole 
State, not competitive with any good work, but co- 
operative in all good work for the State's upbuilding 
that its field of service touches. /Too much stress can- 
not be put upon the fact that in the wonderful oppor- 
tunity that will be opened for the development of 
the State in the next twenty years, the University 
stands at the strategic center. , With this knowledge 
made certain by recent history, every progressive 
state is hastening to invest its university with neces- 
sary equipment for leadership. 

In line with the idea that every citizen of the 
State is in a sense an alumnus of the University, 
the Review suggests inviting to the alumni meetings, 
public-minded men who may have never been students 
at the University, but who are interested in its work. 

Facts about the University for use at the meeting 
may l>e had by dropping a post card to E. R. Rankin, 
Chapel Hill. ' 

What to do nmv: Call together immediately an 
alumnus or two to plan the meeting. Outline a 
programme that will be pleasant, brief, and that will 
contain a statement of what the University is doing. 
Plan one or more definite things to do to help that 
work along during the year. Appoint a local Uni- 
versity Welfare Committee to help with University 
affairs during the year. See that the meeting has the 
proper publicity.

Before this number of the Review reaches its 
readers, the 1916 football season will have opened: 
the Wake Forest game will be over, 
and the Princeton game imminent, to 
be followed quickly by the Harvard game. The pres- 
ent schedule is the hardest that a Carolina team has 
undertaken in recent years. Whatever the results 
this year in the scores recorded, the Review believes 
that the policies set on foot will soon yield the vic- 
tories so ardently desired by all friends of the col- 
lege. The main policy is the development of a sys- 
tem of athletics completely Carolina, built on and 
from representative Carolina athletes. It has in 
mind the general participation of all students in ath- 
letics, each after his own capacity and interest, under 
the best direction and with adequate facilities: (1) 
for the great mass of students, who never expect to 
enter intercollegiate contests, and who physically are 
not equipped for strenuous competition, but who can 
lie interested in and benefitted by games out of doors; 
(2) for a middle group of more or less average ath- 



letes who have sufficient stamina and .skill to take 
time and training for intra-mural contests in the 

major sports; (3) for the first class athlete, who by 
genius and training rises to he the representative 
varsity athlete. The three classes are not rigid, of 
course, but men will pass from "in- to the other. The 
divisions are made for purposes of organization and 
intelligent administration in carrying out the larger 
purpose of college sports. A very important share in 
carrying out this purpose is the one year rule, which 
goes into effect this fall. .This rule, which provides 
that no student during his first year in college shall 
play on a Varsity team, is not primarily to prevent 
"ringers." That is an effective part of its purpose 
just as it is the intent of practically all athletic rules. 
Backed by a scholastic requirement of twelve hours of 
successful work it practically prevents "induced" 
players. But the rule also means that Varsity 
athletics will not absorb a man's attention during his 
first year, and that he will he a part of the college 
community long enough to know its spirit and repre- 
sent it in a truly sportsmanlike way. In order to take 
care of the first year men, the freshman team is given 
a brief schedule, mostly of home games, and under 
careful supervision. With the completion of the new 
athletic field, the number of home names increases, 
and will continue to increase until all but one or two 
of the games are played at borne. When the Har- 
vard and Princeton games were scheduled for this 
fall, it was with a chance that the Princeton game 
would he played in Chapel Hill. One big game will 
be played at Chapel Hill each fall, and will he the 
occasion of a great Alumni Home-Coming.

Review, a report is made of the progress of the fund 

to date. This 3eems to us to he most

a und way for permanently helping in the work

tively organizing this desire. But just as we go to 
press we find this item in a current paper, "A gift of

the expenses incurred therein, in excess of the fees 
which were charged to me' is one of the provisions in

There has been some curiosity among the alumni 
as to the use to which the Fund is to be put. An 
answer will he made shortly to this 
question. It is a matter on which 
the Advisory Council is open-mind- 
ed, and wishes suggestions and advice. Of course, 
it is understood that the principal is not to he used, 
and the interesl only for some important general 
need that cannot be met otherwise. One suggestion 
of value is that it lie used for beautifying the campus. 
To have a fund yielding a steady yearly income would 
enable the college to pursue a policy of campus de- 
velopment and beautification that would he produc- 
tive of tremendous results. To make the campus a 
rarely beautiful home for the University would not 
only have a deep and lasting influence on the stu- 
dents, but it would he a fine source of pride to the 
alumni and to the people of the State. The campus 
has been wonderfully improved in the past five years, 
under the direction of Doctor Coker, and it is the 
obvious influence that its growing beauty has had 
on the community that has led to this suggestion, 
which is that in the next five years we make it one 
of the beauty spots of the country.

The One Hundred and Twenty-second Year Formally Opens with 1090 Students Present— President 

Graham Speaks on the Spirit of the University 

The formal opening of the University for the 
122nd year occurred in Memorial Hall at noon on 
Friday, September 15th. The number of students 
enrolled at this time was 1090, this being 92 greater 
than the enrollment at the corresponding time in 

The invocation was offered by Rev. Walter Patten 
of the Methodist Church and addresses were made 
by Dean Stacy and President Graham. Dean Stacy 
spoke on the subject of "The College Student's Invest- 
ment," and pointed out that three things must be 
put into investments of this nature: work, intelli- 
gence and character. President Graham, after re- 
counting the changes in the faculty and extending the 
greeting of the University to the new men "not as 
guests or tenants of the University, but as true sons 
and heirs," spoke on the subject, "The Spirit of the 

President Graham's Address 

We also meet to-day not only to welcome you here, 
but to pay recognition to the true significance of 
your coming. The sense of joy that the college feels 
in having you here, and the stirring sense of pride 
that she feels in having so great a throng of you for 
her sons has a deeper source than the mere happiness 
of association. What seems important at this- mo- 
ment to you and to me, and compels our attention as 
I think of you and face you as a group, — and as in- 
dividual persons, infinitely confident, strong, lovable, 
ambitious — is what it is that has brought you here 
away from the shops, the fields, the sea, the streets, 
where the vast majority of men of your age are 
making the grim struggle for success in the rough 
terms of actual life; what it is that you have put 
your faith in that has led you to come and enlist 
for four precious years under this standard ? 

It has been one hundred and twenty-one years 
since Hinton James, the first student here, made the 
journey that each of you has just made. What he 
found here was chiefly and I may say solely the Pre- 
siding Professor Dr. David Ker, who had been wait- 
ing for a month for the first student to come. When 
James finally arrived, I have no doubt that the Pres- 
ident assembled him at once and gave him some ex- 
cellent advice. Without any information whatever 
on the subject, I will venture to say what it was. 
He told him that he was at a critical time in his 
career, that he enjoyed opportunities not enjoyed 
by other young men, that the country was also in .a 
peculiarly critical situation, and that it looked to the 
college men to save it ! 

All of which I take to be perfectly true. Every 
age is a critical age to a thing that has life, and es- 
pecially so to a young man who feels the surge of 
abounding life in every limb. 1795 was a wonderfully 
critical year in the life of the University, of this 
country, and the world at large, and especially in the 
life of the youth Hinton James, as he came here ask- 
ing the way of life. But not more wonderfully criti- 
cal, I am sure, than the year 191G-17, to the world, 
to you and to me. And so it has been always and 
will be to every young man as he gathers up his 
strength and faces the world with it — to Cain, to 
Samuel, to Absalom, to I hivid — to the young man who 
came to the Master by night, asking the true way to 
life. Just as it has been to the unending procession 
of eager hearted young men who have followed Hin- 
ton James through these halls, and with the same 
question in their hearts, if not on their lips. 

I do not know what Hinton James thought of what 
the President said. Students here seem always to 
be normally hospitable toward listening to advice, 
and abnormally sensible about forgetting as much of 
it as they don't care for. 

Being a freshman James may have felt that the 
President needn't worry about the country (some one 
has said that a college ought to be a wonderfully wise 
place — that freshmen bring such a lot of knowledge, 
and the seniors never take any away) ; that he could 
look after the country in his odd moments if the 
President would only tell him what there was going 
on now to keep a fellow from being bored to death. 

Or, if he was not possessed of this confident spirit 
of "let Hinton do it," he may have been of that other 
type that has no reaction whatever to the sharp chal- 
lenge of opportunity and the appeal for a critical 
decision. He may have been like the darkey who 
passed a factory as the whistles were blowing for the 
critical hour of dinner: "Blow, blow," he said, with 
calm resignation to his fate, "Dinner time for some 
folks: but 'tain't nothin' but twelve o'clock for me!" 

There is plenty of evidence that James was keenly 
alive to the opportunities offered him: he had an 
honorable college career and an after career that was 
an honor to the college; but if I knew nothing what- 
ever of his record I could say with assurance two 
simple things about him, as I think I can about you 
or any other average college man: (1) he wants to 
enjoy his youth, and gratify the thirst for use that 
every muscle and pore of his growing body craves. 
Life through a hundred keys of interest appeals to 
him, and above them all he holds a sort of fierce, in- 
vincible belief that he has the right to immediate 
happiness. There wasn't anybody here in 1795 but 


Ipean of the School of Applied Science 

Doctor Kit and Hinton and the Davie Poplar, bul 

one of the first things the boy did was to write an 
essay on "The Pleasures of College Life." But he 
also wrote one on "The Uses of the Sun," and another 
on "The Effect of Climate on Human Life." 

And that suggests the other thing that I would 
know I could say about him or any other young man 
coming to college: (2) He not only wants to enjoy 
to the full the youthful physical life that is his only 
once; but also he wants to realize the more keenly 
felt, though less clearly defined passion for something 
of larger, freer use, more deeply rooted, of more per- 
manent satisfaction. Through the eating, drinking, 
and sleeping of every day. the buttoning and unbut- 
toning routine of existence, this deeper life of the 
mind and spirit sends up signals of it- hopes and 
dreams, asking for expression and liberation and to 
get born through him in greal forms of useful work, 
science or an. Every man feels that passion a- really 
as he does the ether. It is the eternal essence of his 
nianh 1. There is something in him of the Prodi- 
gal, of Ivan and id' Saul- the men who sold out for 
a price they could clutch who swapped their star 
dust t'nr common (day; there is something also "I the 
Prodigal and Paul — the men who claimed their birth 
right back, who "came t" themselves" and came 'nark. 
Every young man's life is an unprecipitated solution 
of all biography: of Nero, Benedict Arnold, and Jess 
Willard ; hut in. lis- of Socrates, Shakespere, Newton, 
Washington, Lincoln. Lee, Pasteur. 

Every college man recognizes these two clear calls 
re him, and most men fee] thai in the ordinary life 
of every day there is a sharp contradiction between 
them: that there must be a surrender of one of them, 
that college lite at best must be a compromise be- 
tween one's youth and his maturity, what he i- now 
and what he want- to he fifteen years from now— 
a truce between hi- happiness and his ambition. 
Now it is at this point, 1 think, that the college 

speaks it- great word, and -peaks the thai you 

havi me to ask it t<> -peak. You may think that 

von have come to ask it how to get into medicine, or 
how to make money, or how to make an X. ( '. sweater 
ni' a Phi Beta Kappa key. or how to he an engineer, or 
how to get into society — i r any other of the one thou- 
sand things that men work and die for. These are 
understandable motives tor coming to college, and 
the college incidentally can respond to them all; but 
it could not answer them successfully if there were 
no deeper motive behind them. The great question 
that you bring to the University to-day has a deeper 
center than a desire for either physical satisfaction or 
success in the world. It is the question that the young 
man came to the Master with — "What shall I do to 
inherit life" — the larger, abundant life that will 
satisfy all of the finer passions of my lite. 

The Master made this young man a fairly easy 
answer. lie told him. for one thing, to play the 
game according to the rules laid down. The young 
man replied that he had always done that. Then the 
Master shifted the whole point of view to the heart 
of the mystery. He told him that the source of life 
is not a set of "rules, a ceremonial, a doctrine, an 
organization; hut an attitude, an atmosphere, a life." 
And the answer of the university to your question 
-as the answer of the greatest of human institutions 
to the greatest of human question — is the same as 
that of tin- Master. 

It answers, play the game according to the rules; 
Imt ii mo. adds thai this is only incidental. The edu- 
cation that it-offers you i- lint in reality a mass ot 
fact-, a degree, a curriculum. Above and beyond all 
of that it. too. i- an attitude, an atmosphere, a way 
of life. It i- the way of life based mi the innate 
passi.m for the intelligent way of doing things. It 
is the intellectual way of life, and ii declares that 
curiosity, the spirit of free inquiry, the passion to 
know, is as natural in a human being a- the desire 
to breathe or to eat. It declares its faith in the con- 
trolling power of the mind to find the besi path in 
the confusions thai beset a man'- path, and "its 
superiority in contrast with every other power, and 
in it- technique, because ii '-an he applied to every 
undertaking not only In studies, hut in industry, in 
public life, in husiness. in sport, in politics, in society 
and religion. ^N^ 

To become a true University man it is necessary 
to come into tin- way of looking at things. It does 


not mean the abandonment of any legitimate sort of 
happiness whatsoever, nor the loss of any freedom. 
The adventure of discovering and liberating one's 
mind, far from being a dull and dreary performance, 
is the most thrilling of all youthful adventures. There 
is no question of self-punishment or external dis- 
cipline; but only the freedom of becoming one's own 
master, instead of a slave to the tyranny of one's low 
and cheap desires. To come into this insight is to 
see this organized discovery of the mind that we call 
education, not as learning, but as a love of knowledge, 
not as a matter of being industrious, but of loving in- 
dustry, not as a matter of giving us a good start to- 
ward a middle-age success, but to enable us to keep 
growing, and so lay hold on the eternal spring of life. 
What the University stands for is this natural loyalty 
to truth, to work, to life at its fullest and best that 
comes through the intellectual way of life. Its faith 
is that through that way it may lead men into the 
richest and most abundant expression of their best 
selves. Its mission, therefore, is to lead them to 
come to themselves in the highest degree, and so 
through whatever happy travail of spirit to be "born 
again." In this way, the University is truly our 
Alma Mater — mother of the best in men. 

True college or University spirit is generated out 
of that, and can have no other source. Its central 
concern is a quick and eager interest in ideas, and its 
temper a radiant enthusiasm for human excellence 
in all human pursuits. Consequently it stands not 
only for efficiency and excellence in studies, but for 
excellence in sports, in dress, in language, in man- 
ners ; in sport, not as victory alone — though the doc- 
trine of human excellence insists on that, — but sports- 
manship ; in conduct, not on honesty alone, but honor. 
Nothing that interests a man is foreign to its point 
of view of present efficiency, steadily growing into 
the durable success and the happiness of an intelli- 
gently developed and complete life. 

It is not necessary to go to college to get this atti- 
tude of eager interest in the intelligent way of life. 
Many men outside of college walls have been true 
University men; and many men inside have been 
dead to its message. Horace Greeley had a sign out- 
side the Tribune office: "No college men or other 
horned cattle need apply." The Almighty has no 
prejudice for mere college graduates; nor has the 
world. They have no permanent prejudices, except 
for the superior over the inferior. They ask not for 
men who are college men with a blind and sentimen- 
tal passion to serve ; but for men whose intelligent 
way of life has equipped them as superior agencies 
for doing the work of the world. 

The beginning of this great year finds you facing 
the world at a moment of extraordinary interest and 
inspiration to men as individuals, as citizens of the- 
State and of the world. "The immediate future," 

said President Wilson the other day "brings us 
squarely face to face with many exacting problems, re- 
quiring new thinking, fresh courage, and resourceful- 
ness . . . stimulating us to the display of the best 
powers within us." In this splendid trial by battle of 
what men live by, you belong to the most privileged — 
I may say, the only privileged class in the world — 
Xot in that you are registered in a college, but in 
that you are permitted under the best conditions to 
work freely, loyally and wholly for all that men hold 
precious. 1 have every confidence that in this splen- 
did business, you will so take your part that this 
year will mark a great and definite step in your indi- 
vidual growth, and make of this spot and of this 
institution the birthplace and mother of that best pro- 
duct of any civilization — masterful, intelligent men, 
eternally and invincibly loyal to their highest natures. 


Twenty-four young doctors, alumni of the Uni- 
versity, were successful applicants for license to prac- 
tice medicine in this State before the board of ex- 
aminers at its meeting in Raleigh last June. John

With Few Old Men Returning for Places on Football Eleven, Coaches and Players 
Are Working Steadily for Big Games Ahead 

With only four members of last year's varsity 
eleven back, with a team approximately ten pounds 
lighter than the 1915-16 aggregation and with a sche- 
dule far harder than any ever tackled by a previous 
( larolina eleven, the White and Blue football season 
opened September 30 with certain auspicious fea- 
tures of last year's opening noticeably lacking. 

Only forty-five candidates have thus far reported 
to Head Coach Thomas J. Campbell on Emerson 
Field. This number represents the remnants of last 
year's varsity squad and the pick of the class teams. 
The smallness of the squad is due in part to the one 
year eligibility rule which goes into effect this season 
and by which Freshmen are barred from the varsity 

And yet the situation is not without its redeeming 
features. Captain Tandy who for three years has 
ranked as premier center in Southern football circles 
is rapidly approaching his old time form. Ramsey 
will hold down the berth at right tackle this season 
for the fourth and last time. Ramsey has been rated, 
as one of the best tackles Carolina ever had. His 
running mate on offensive work will be J. C. Tavloe, 

who played star ball at guard last year. On defen- 
sive it is probable that Tayloe will be shifted back to 

The most likely candidate for the place at right 
guard is Grimes, a 190 pound letter man of last 
year's squad. On offensive work Ingram will pro- 
bably supplant Tayloe at left guard when the Latter 
is shifted to tackle. Price, a 200 pound guard on 
last season's Soph, class team is also making a 
strong bid for one of these berths. Harrell and 
Pearson, members of last year's squad, are showing 
up well at tackle. 

Both end positions are to be filled this year. Home- 
wood, all-Southern selection at right wing and an 
all-round athlete of four years standing, received his 
degree last May. Left end was also uncovered by 
Boshamer's failure to return. The most likely can- 
didates for these positions are Proctor and Love, of 
last year's Varsity squad. Davis, Clarvoe, Farthing, 
and Ranson are also making strong bids for wing 

The hardest proposition with which Head Coach 
Campbell will have to contend is the filling of the 



Assistant Processor of School Administration 

vacant backfield positions. The loss of Mebane Long 
at quarter, together with ex-Captain Dave Tayloe 

and MaeDonald at half, and full back-. Reid and 
Parker — all of last year's squad — will be bard to 
replace. The backfield will probably be built around 
Folger, the 178-pound half back who entered the 
University last year — Folger was a star punter and 
broken field runner on the South Carolina eleven 
two years ago. 

For the position at quarter Johnson, who was 
Long's understudy last fall, seems to have first call 
for the place and so far has demonstrated his ability 
to handle the team. In punting, however, Johnson. 
gives way to Coleman, all class quarter last year and 
manager of the Varsity squad this year. Two other 
applicants for this position are Williams and Jean- 
(•!(<-. Folger will have first call for one of the posi- 
tions at half. Who will be his running mate is still 
a mooted question. 

Fitzsimmons a L50-pound sub-end of last year's 
squad, seems at present to be the most promising 
candidate. Bellamy, another of last year's sub-ends, 
weighing L38 pounds, is showing up well at full. 
Among the other hacks who have made favorable im- 
pressions on the coaches an': Black, Wafkins, Ten- 
iiont and Tanner — all of last year's squad. 

With those men Carolina faces the hardest schedule 
in her history. In three successive weeks the White 

and Blue goes up against Princeton at Princeton, 
Harvard at Cambridge, and Georgia Tech. at Atlan- 
ta, — not to mention the Thanksgiving game at Rich- 
mond and the games with V. P. I., V. M. I., Wake 
Forest, and Davidson. 

The Harvard system of coaching replaces the 
Princeton system used here last year. Thomas J. 
Campbell, Harvard, '11, has general charge of the 
coaching, but will give especial attention to the back- 
field — Eawson R. Cowen, Harvard '16, will assist 
Mr. Campbell, especially in coaching the line. Mr. 
Cowen was guard on the Crimson team for two years 
and coach of the second team for one year. Dewitt 
Kluttz, who helped to coach the Davidson squad last 
year, will coach the ends until the date of the Har- 
vard game, after which he will pursue the study of 
medicine at Pennsylvania. 


The following is the schedule of games : 
Sepember 30 — Wake Forest at Chapel Hill. 
October 7 — Princeton at Princeton. 
October 14 — Harvard at Cambridge. 
( (Holier 21 — Georgia Tech. at Atlanta. 
October 28— V. M. I. at Chapel Hill. 
November 4 — V. P. I. at Roanoke. 
November 11 — Davidson at Winston-Salem. 
November 18 — Furman at Chapel Hill. 
November 30 — Virginia at Richmond. 


In the opening game of the season on September 
30, Carolina won from Wake Forest by the score of 
20 to 0. ( 'arolina utilized the straight attack. Wake 
Forest was unable to make a first down. The game 
was characterized on Carolina's part by good team 
work. Among the new men on the varsity eleven, 
Folger, Bellamy, and Fitzsimmons, in the backfield, 
and Ilarrell, in the line, showed up well.

"The Purpose of History," by Professor Freder- 
ick J. E. Woodbridge, a small volume in three chap- 
ters embodying the lectures on the McNair Founda- 
tion for the year 1915-6, has just appeared from the 
Columbia University Press. In a "Note" prefacing 
the volume, the author graciously remarks: ''I am 
happy to acknowledge my indebtedness to the Fac- 
ulty and Students of the University of North Caro- 
lina for a most delightful visit at Chapel Hill." The 
lectures themselves, according, express "certain con- 
clusions about history to which I have been led by 
the study of the history of philosophy and by reflec- 
tion mi the work of contemporary philosophers, es- 
pecially Bergson, Dewey, and Santayana." 

In his opening chapter, "From History to Philoso- 
phy," the author points out that for the intellectu- 
ally young, history "must be written as a romance 
which will tire their imagination, rather than as a 
philosophy which would make them wise." The au- 
thor's aim is to discover, through examination of what 
the historian himself proposes, in what sense the 
idea of purpose in history is appropriate, and to what 
ideas we arc led when we think of history as the rec- 
ord of human progress. It is pointed out that the 
history of Greece which Herodotus wrote, wonderful 
as it was, is in many particulars false in fact and 
incorrect in perspective. It is not the history of 
Greece, but only an item in the history of Greece. 
Each history lacks finality; instead of being the end, 
it is itself the beginning of new history. The truth 
of history is a progressive truth to which the ages 
as thev continue contribute. The very writing of 

history is itself an historical process, since it too, 
like history, is something "evolved and acted." His- 
tory, then, is defined as a "career in time." 

The next chapter, "The Pluralism of History," 
presents an attempt to pass from history to philoso- 
phy by analyzing what the career of things in time 
involves. Professor Woodbridge appears to Bergson 
in support of his contention that it is not accurate to 
think of time in terms of space. Time is more like a 
"line in the drawing" than a line already drawn. 
"Facts march on in time . . . ; their careers 
overlap and interfere; so that the result is a failure 
for some and a success for others. The march is their 
history." The present is continually adding to and 
completing the past. If every history is reviewed as 
a career, its termination appears as a consequence 
to which its antecedents are peculiarly appropriate. 
Thus history emerges into light as at once purposive 
and selective. History from this standpoint must be 
recognized as pluralistic, since there can be no com- 
plete history of anything, but many histories. "To 
live in the light of a past remembered and understood 
is to live, not the life of instinct and emotion, but 
the life of intelligence. . . . Human history be- 
comes thus the record of human progress. From it 
we may learn how that progress is to be defined and 
so discover the purpose of man in history." 

In the third and final chapter, "The Continuity of 
History," the author finds his concept of continuity 
in the famous formulation of the mathematician, 
Dedekim. "Each action of time is preceded and fol- 
lowed by everything which jirecedes and follows it," 
says Professor Woodbridge, "and yet each action of 
time begins and ends with its own peculiar and indi- 
vidual precision." The conclusion to be drawn, ulti- 
mately, is that progress involves something more than 
the continuous accumulation of results in some speci- 
fied direction. Progress implies some improvement 
of history, so that to judge that there has been prog- 
ress is to judge that history has measured up to a 
standpoint applied to it. "Man makes progress be- 
cause he can conceive what progress is, and use that 
conception as a standard of selection and as a goal to 
be reached." Indeed, when we speak of "making" 
progress, we recognize in that expression that man 
uses the materials at his command for the. ends he de- 
sires. The purpose of man's history must of neces- 
sity be the "ability so to use the materials of the world 
that they will be permanently used in the light of the 
ideal perfection they naturally suggest. Man can 
conceive no occupation more satisfying and no happi- 
ness more complete. In entering upon it he makes 
national progress. Its measure is the degree of sue- 



cess be attains in making his animal life minister to 
ideals he can own without reserve and Live without 


On September 14. the Manufacturers Record of 
Baltimore, published a special issue of one hundred 
and ninety-five pages, devoted specifically to one sub- 
jed now uppermost in public consciousness, "The 
' 'hemical Potentialities of the South." An extraordi- 
narily conspicuous position in this issue was occupied 
by representatives of this University. The second 
article was by Dr. ( '. IT. Herty, President of the 
American Chemical Society, on "The Pole of Chem- 
istry in the industrial Development of the South." 
The sixth article was by Dr. F. P. Venable, ex-Presi- 
dent of the American Chemical Society, on "What 
the Chemist Means to Manufacturers. The Mistake 
individually and Nationally of Low Pay for Chem- 
ists.'* The fourteenth article was by Dr. J. H. Pratt, 
State Geologist of North Carolina, on "Utilizing Our 
Raw Materials at Home." Mention may also be made 
of another article, "The Development of Chemical 
Industries in the South and Southwest," by President 
W. B. Phillips, of the Colorado School of Mines, a 
native of Chapel Hill and a graduate of the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina ( 1*77), whence' he received 
the Ph. D degree in 1SS3. 

Dr. Herty stressed three sides of chemistry, quali- 
tative, quantitative, and research: and urgently rec- 
ommended the adequate endowment of co-oj)erative 
research laboratories in the South for the develop- 
ment of organized industries and for the creation of 
industries now only in their infancy. 

Dr. Yenable dwelt upon the growing need for the 
proper equipment of chemists who are to enter the 
industrial field, and the folly of failing to compen- 
sate adequately the technical chemist thus properly 
equipped. for industrial research. 

Dr. Pratt asserted that the South offers to the 
chemist an unparalleled Held. One result of the in- 
terest in conservation of our national resources has 
been a very wide investigation of the utilization of 
30-called waste products; and the recent investiga- 
tions of the chemist and the metallurgical engineer 
now open up vast possibilities for the more intensive 
utilization of our raw materials.

The opportunity of training schools in affecting 
the large number of people who are going out to 
leach our schools, does not seem to be realized, ex- 
cepl in rare cases; as for example, the work of Dr. 
E. C. Branson — a work, that he is carrying on at 
the University of North Carolina. — National Muni- 
cipal Review. 


"I am mailing you a copy of the special issue of 
the Manufacturer's Record entitled 'The Chemical 
Potentialities of the South.' This will be far and 
away the most influential publication ever issued in 
behalf of the development of the South, and this 
means the development of the nation. 

"I am sure it will interest you to know that one 
of the members of your faculty, Dr. Herty, is very 
largely responsible for whatever good may come out 
of this special issue. * * I thought it would in- 
teresl you to know that a member of your faculty 
had thus been instrumental in putting into effect 
influences that I believe will be worth untold mil- 
lions to the South through making known its re- 
sources to the nation and their stimulation of this 
scci ion in the utilization of chemistry." — Richard H. 
Edmonds, Editor. Manufacturer's Record. 
The News Letter 

The University News Letter, that compiler of 
good tilings, dispenser of inspiring facts and chron- 
icler of encouragement, devoted much space in its 
last issue to the raising of live stock in North Caro- 
lina and to boosting the packing house industry. In 
this same article it deals largely with Wilmington, 
pointing out many interesting things. The article is 
well worth reading, especially by home folks. — The 
Wilmington Dispatch.
