IF you had a thousand lives to hve, perhaps you could afford not to insure. But you are just
one man and have only one life to live — and to lose.
Life Insurance puts behind the frailty of one man standing alone the immeasurable strength
of many men standing together. It neutralizes the calamity that chance may bring to an indi-
vidual by distributing the risk over many individuals through the operation of the law of average.
Largely because of the famous Massachusetts laws and strict supervision, no Massachusetts
legal reserve company lias ever retired, or amalgamated, or become insolvent.
The New England Mutual is not only the original Massachusetts Company, but it is the first
mutual old-iine legal reserve company chartered in America.
Its policy contract carries the principles of Mutuality to its logical and absolute limit.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
Seven to notliiug. That is the score by which Car-
olina, after eleven years of anxious waiting, splendid-
ly defeated Virginia at Broad Street
Park in Iiiehraond on Thanksgiving-
Day and brought to a close a season
made memorable not only by a fine
showing again Princeton and Harvard, but by a
hitherto unheard of unity of spirit, true sportsman-
ship, and high purpose among student body, coaches,
Looked at from any point of view, the victoi-y was
notable. Every man was in every play and the team
work went with sure precision. Individually, col-
lectively, the men knew what the situations demand-
ed, and they met the need, whatever it was, ade-
quately, surely, and with a sportsmanship praised
from every quarter. On her part Virginia was out-
classed, but her representatives, true to Virginia tra-
ditions, fought cleanly, intelligently, and to the last
whistle blast, before conceding their defeat, and
when they lost, they lost like gentlemen.
Elsewhere the Review carries an analysis and
general story of the game, but it cannot omit to men-
tion here the many favorable
iiiEi ni:,jin.i wr comments from varied sources on
THE MATTER— , , • i,
SPORTSMANSHIP game and especially concern-
ing the fine spirit now pervading
Carolina-Virginia athletic relations. Three of these
expressions so clearly set forth the high level and
fine feeling now characterizing these relationships
that they are printed in full. The first two are taken
from recent letters of greeting between Presidents
Alderman and Graham. The third is from the edi-
torial columns of the University of Virginia Alumni
News of Ueccml)er G. They follow in the order
The universal sentiment here among the students
and faculty who were present is that the victory was
well deserved, that in fact the score did not quite
exjjress the difference between the two teams. You
are a fine lot of sports down there, never give up,
pretty sure to come back, and we shall have to put
on our fighting metal to put you out of business
again. — President Alderman.
I thank you very much for your good letter of De-
cember fourth. You are quite right about the un-
fathomed depths of joy that the victory at Richmond
gave to all of the patriots "down home," who have
been wearily waiting for the past decade. What
gives me more satisfaction than the victory itself is
the way that our men feel toward your men, and the
way that yours feel toward ours. Last year the loss
of the game was all but compensated for by the fact
that two or three fine clean-looking young fellows on
the Virginia team introduced themselves to me and
told me that our men had played the game like good
sportsmen and lost like gentlemen. One of our stu-
dents, who M'eiit to the game this year came down
to tell me his impressions this year, and practically
the first thing he said to me was that his greatest sat-
isfaction, after all, was in witnessing the fine spirit
in which Virginia took iier defeat. "They are gen-
tlemen and thoroughbreds," he said, "and that's all
there is to it."
I never hear from the student body now one word
of the suspicion and criticism that used to mark these
annual affairs. I feel pretty confident in my belief
that we have put athletics here on a high and solid
plane. There are no antagonizing interests now
concerned in its management. Coaches, faculty, and
students are absolutely a unit in the standards we
mean to maintain. If Virginia should have any
cause for alarm as to her future victories, the proper
source of it will be the spirit that is hereafter to be
in i)ur athletics. — President Graham.
Despite the fact that defeat was her usual portion,
Carolina did not lose her courage nor her enthusiasm,
and she has played against us year after year with a
splendid determination ; Virginia has had to fight,
and fight hard for every victory. The Tar Heel sup-
porters, too, did not lose their loyalty nor fall off in
numbers at the games because their teams could not
win. Each year they came out in their thousands,
and cheered their players as lustily and stood by
them as staunchly in defeat as they could possibly
have done in victory. Ti-uly, the spirit of these Caro-
linians has been admirable.
Such determination and such lo3'alty deserved a
reward. And this year the reward came. On Thanks-
giving Day at Richmond, in the presence of 14,000
spectators, the Tar Heels overcame the Orange and
Blue by the small, but to them infinitely precious,

it was the experience of the Carolinians, and the
splendid support they received that enabled them to
Early in the contest, it became apparent that Caro-
lina had a remarkably able eleven — a team of season-
ed players, whose individual minds seemed to be weld-
ed into a single mind capable of thinking only one
thought: Virginia must be beaten. The Carolina
stands were packed. There was a band from some-
where "Down Home" that played incessantly the
Carolina songs. The thousands in the stands sang
with the band — sang loudly, and sometimes fiercely,
but always well. The people in those Carolina stands
— a great crowd of students, a great crowd of alumni,
with their sisters and their cousins and their aunts,
seemed, like the team, to have but a single mind cap-
able of thinking but a single thought: Virginia must
be beaten. — Alumni Nev\s.

A NEW CHAPTER ^'' ^^"°^^ Carolina athletics
IN ATHLETICS ^'^S ^^^o^g^ to grasp the signifi-
cant facts in the record and it
knows positively that within the year 1916 a new
chapter in athletic progress, whether number three,
or seven, or ten, or what not, and for which the source
material has been steadily gathering through the im-
mediately preceding years, has been written. And
the writing has been done intelligently, superbly.
An old order has ended. A new has be2:un. The
old closed with the coming of the spring. The new
is now with ns and the satisfaction which it yields is
in general comparable with that of the victory at
Broad Street Park on the 30th of November. ■
To the akimni some of the outstanding featiires
of this new order may not be as obvious as they are
to the Review. For that reason they are set forth
in the following divisions and the attention of the
alumni is invited to their consideration.
Possibly no athletic regulation now generally pre-
vailing in American intercollegiate athletics has
been more persistently opposed (be-
YEAR^Ru'lE '^°''^ ^""^ adoption) by certain athletic
interests than that which looked to
the exclusion from the varsity of all athletic mater-
ial, whether found among the freshmen or first year
students pursuing advanced or professional courses, ,
during its first year of residence. To exclude such
material was (to quote the stock argument) to invite
inevitable defeat. Carolina, like all other institu-
tions, Virginia included, has been confronted with
this difliculty, and in her eft'ort during the past ten
years towards this objective she has met with her pro-
portionate share of this resistance. However, after
a gradual application of the principle through the
medium of the six-months rule in the case of ath-
letes coming from other colleges, she has finally gone
the whole distance, and in adopting, with Virginia,
this regulation long since and wisely incorporated
in the athletic code of the leading institutions of the
Xorth and Central West, she has brought her ath-
letic policy into accord with the spirit of modern
athletics, and, what is of far more importance, into
accord with the high idealism which permeates every
other phase of her life. Consequently she has found
herself in a position to demand of her coaching staff
that it devote its whole energy to the developing of
home material instead of spending it in what has
so long proven the vain eft'ort of bringing together
from all quarters a team that could win regardless of
whether it was truly representative of Carolina or
not. Furthermore, the adoption of this rule re-
moved the ground for suspicion which has so long
been the bane of southern athletics, and so far as
Carolina and Virginia are concerned, relieved their
faculty committees, coaches, and student bodies from
searching for the doubtful spots in the athletic rec-
ords of the men who represented the institutions on
the gridiron and diamond. Under the operation of
the present rule Carolina and Virginia accept each
other on the high level towards which each has been
steadily striving for the past year with the happy
result indicated in the foregoing paragraphs. Both
are to be congratulated upon their patient, intelli-
gent work to this end. The consummation of this
splendid achievement must be credited to the year

two groups — men comprising the
varsity and second team squads, and the first year
reserves. The varsity coaches took charge of the
former realizing fully that their task was clearly
cut out for them. It was to develop an efficient
fighting machine out of the men who had been on the
Hill for one year and, by virtue of that fact, right-
fully entitled to represent Carolina. It was dis-
tinctly not to base the hope — as has so frequently
been done in the past — of a successful season upon

a lucky find among the freshmen or tlie athletic of-
ferings of other institutions. Similarly, the fresh-
men and first year reserves were put under the care
of skillful coaches, a definite schedule of games, cul-
minating in a noteworthy contest with the Virginia
freshmen, was arranged, and for the first time in the
history of Carolina, first year athletic material was
adequately brought out and developed. Athletically,
the freshmen found themselves and became an ath-
letic asset for future use ; and incidentally the fresh-
man class, at the very beginning of its college career,
was given working citizenship upon the campus.
This, in contrast with the futile attempt at class
election and organization by the freshmen in the
nineties, or with the annual freshman-sophomore
free-for-all football circus of the early nineteen hun-
dreds, is a far stride forward both in class organiza-
tion and athletics, and is, again, to be credited to

letic policies, Carolina set aliout dur-
ing the holidays of 1015 securing as her athletic di-
rectors men who represented modern intercollegiate
athletics at their best. This, as the Review under-
stands it, meant the placing of emphasis upon the
further cultivation of the fine spirit of sportsman-
ship prevailing in the student body, the complete de-
velopment of all properly available athletic material,
and the appreciation of the highest order of expert
knowledge in the solution of athletic problems. At
the same time it also provided for the hearty co-
operation of the alumni and the utilization of any
export suggestion or knowledge available through
them. And here again the final result for which
preparation has been made through the years, must
be set down as an achievement of 1916.
Somewhere in its file of electro-plates the Review
has a paid-for but unused cut of the old athletic field
particularly featuring the grandstand
iu those somber days immediately fol-
lowing the time of the wind-storm
which lifted its shabby roof from its worm-eaten
rafters and left it standing desolate awaiting the
match which ultimately laid it in reverent ashes.
The editors could not bring themselves to the point
of printing it because they realized that it would
make everything athletic unbearably blue. But Em-
erson Field, with its solid concrete stands, its wide
sweep of well sodded turf, its fence of thriving
hedge, is of today. Instead of infirmity, it sug-
gests strength, and its atmosphere breathes of life
and hope. This splendid field, long and sorely need-
ed, is now a part of the University's athletic equip-
ment, and it too became so in the spring of 1916.
We have attempted, thus far, to show how the one-
year rule, the freshman eleven, efficient athletic lead-
ership, and the Emerson Field have

purposely omitted to mention, directly, the most sig-
nificant. It has been running through all the pre-
ceding paragraphs, especially those written by Pres-
idents Alderman and Graham and the Alumni News.
Have you caught it ? If we are not greatly mistaken,
and we are sure we are not, it is the spirit of clean,
aggressive, hard-fighting sportsmanship which has
come in power upon the campus and which we are
confident has come to stay.
"On to Chapel Hill," brethren of the Alumni As-
sociation, is to be the slogan for all supporters of the
White and Blue from this date un-
"ON TO ^^ til Thanksgiving Day, 1917. After
IN t^n^ °'^^" twenty od^d years, ' during which
Carolina and Virginia have met
each other on neutral territory, the big game of the
year is to begin to be staged on the home grounds
of the two institutions, and Emerson Field is to be
the s:'ene of the first combat. This has been definite-
ly decided so far as the game for 1917 is concerned,
and preparations have already been begun for the big
home-coming event. The announcement is also made
by the Graduate Manager that Carolina is to meet
Georgia at Athens in 1917, and that the return game
will be played on Emerson Field in 1918. So the
loyal wearers of the White and Blue may prepare
henceforth to make an annual pilgrimage back home.
The full significance of the bringing of the Vir-
ginia game to Chapel Hill may not be immediately
ajiparcnt, and there will doubtless be
many who will, regret that the Hill
and Charlottesville are to take the
time-honored place of Richmond. But the change is
vastly significant, and it marks a more important
chapter in the University's history than the one
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
above recorded ; for it will not only j^i'ofoundly affect
athletics, but the larger life of the University as well.
To the Athletic Association it quite probably
means (certainly for a few years), a falling off in
receipts. But when it is remembered that a good
per cent of the receipts at Richmond goes to the
owners of Broad Street Park for rental; that the
yearly expense of carrying varsity, scrubs, band, and
other attendants to Richmond is high; and that the
number of paid admissions usually runs some 5,000
below the 12,000 or 14,000 of which the press so
fluently tells, the total net receipts will not be so
greatly diminished. And at all events the Associa-
tion can feel that it has gone out of the commercial
business and that it is staging the big event of the year
for home consumption. Furthermore, it means the
necessity of going to work today and of keeping at it
incessantly, with such aid as can be secured from
students, alumni, faculty. University, and all, to
make the event the unprecedented success that every
one hopes that it may be and must be.
To the interests, if there be any of these pluto-
cratic organizations whose lines of railway or other
enterprises extend to Chapel Hill, the Review sin-
cerely hopes the change may mean a great deal. The
fact that some 5,000 to 10,000 people are going to
invade the village from time to time, that they will
require the services of railroads, trollies, automobiles,
and hotels, ought to make it easier for the local
board of trade, in conjunction with the University,
to secure transportation and hotel facilities, the lack
of which today constitutes as serious a problem for
the University as the insufficiency of its annual in-
come for maintenance. If the University is to touch
the life of the State in an increasingly effective way
it must be enabled through better transportation fa-
cilities to break down the isolation which now separ-
ates it physically from the State. And this, assured-
ly, it can never do if it allows its alumni and hearty
supporters to build up the facilities leading to Rich-
mond instead of to itself.
What it will mean to the student body can be im-
agined more easily than stated. Those who usual-
ly witness the game at Richmond will save on ear
fare, but will put the price of a ticket into the treas-
ury of the Athletic Association. Those who never
go, will, for the first time, have the opportunity
of seeing the battle royal with their own eyes rather
than an illustrated report of it in Gerrard PIall.~
There will be a vast difference in the two methods.
When the alumni arrive, with their uncles, and their
cousins and their aunts, when oiEcial North Caro-
lina finds its seats in the stands, when interested
North Carolina streams in through the gates, and the
Old Dominion hosts occupy the opposite side of the
field, when, in the presence of all these, the battle is
joined, we believe the current of University life will
swell to fuller tide in the student breast than it ever
could at Broad Street Park, and to that extent loy-
alty to Alma Mater will be lastingly deepened.
For the alumni it will mean the turning of their
faces home, many of whom ha\'e made the pilgrim-
age frequently to Richmond, but far too seldom to
their Alma Mater. For many it will be a period of
reunion, and all will have the opportunity of catch-
ing a new vision of their fond mother as she goes
with high purpose about her splendid work. And to
Alma Mater it will be a time of joyous home-return-
ing such as she has fondly longed for through the
years, and out of which nothing but larger good to
herself and her sons can come.
In distributing the packages from the Christmas
tree of Carolina's appreciation and gratitude for the
fine victory over Virginia there
are enough to supply bountiful-
ly every member of the team, the
coaches, the trainer, the scrubs and everybody else
directly concerned with the game. Besides those di-
rectly concerned with it and its result, there are a
lot of people indirectly concerned in very important
ways. It hasn't occurred to them that they had much
to do with bringing home the bacon. The Review
would like to line them all up and call them all
blessed and by name. It cannot do that successfully,
but it docs want to single out the graduate manager,
Mr. C. T. Woollen. He has been on the job day in
and day out, quietly, efficiently, and unceasingly
for the past four years. He has run his ofiice on
the highest plane and he has put behind our whole
system a solid, trustworthy organization that is an
important part of all sound and successful athletics.
From every point of view the year 1916 has been
a most eventful one for the University. Registration
both in the Summer School and durinc;
the regular term has been larger than
ever before, the Bureau of Extension has
reached a decidedly enlarged number of patrons in
the State, the student body has devoted itself to un-
usually high purposes, a genuine spirit of sportsman-
ship has prevailed in all athletic activities, and Vir-
ginia has been defeated. All told the record has
been the best in Carolina's history.
In view of these facts it is eminently fitting for
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
tlie ahimiii and the home-returning students to get
together during the holidays, as they do annually at
Gastonia, Lenoir, and other places, and talk the mat-
ter over. There is abundant cause for genuine thanks-
giving, and there is equally abundant cause for look-
ing into the future and planning for the still further
enlargement of Alma Mater's influence and service.
The Review has the hope that such meetings will
be held in many localities.
Through the will of the late J. H. Hewitt, '90,
the University has recently came into the possession
" of $20,000, of which $17,000 is now
available. This amount, according to
the provision of the will, is to consti-
tute a student loan fund. The principal is to be kept
intact and oialy the income used for the 23urpose in-
This bequest is the first which the University has
received through the ahimni since the Alumni Loy-
alty Fund was established, and while it does not form
a part of that fund, it adds materially to the receipts
from alumni sources. The total from them for 1916
is approximately $21,000.

THE NORTH CAROLINA CLUB
An Organization with a Purpose and a Record of Accomplishment
The North Carolina Club was organized on Sep-
tember 25, 1914, and has now entered upon its third
year's work. It meets for au hour upon fortnightly
Monday evenings. The schedule of studies for the
year is marked up at its first meeting each fall, and
the subjects are promptly chosen by volunteers among
the members. The studies of the year, a score or so,
are assigned to definite dates for reports and discus-
sions. The students have access to the ample files of
information in the headquarters of the Club in Room
14 of the Peabod}" Building. Here they spend their
chance leisure in preparation upon their subjects for
weeks and sometimes for months in advance of their
The Club is busy with matters of state-wide im-
portance and significance. Their studies are home-
spun studies of every-day puzzles and problems that
call for competent understanding and wise solution
every minute of every day in every community in
North Carolina. They are studies of the near-here-
and-now. The Club subjects for 1910-17 cover nine-
teen studies in the production of primary wealth in
North Carolina, the retention and afX'umulation of
wealth in North Carolina, and taxation and the com-
mon weal in North Carolina.
What It Is
The North Carolina Club at the University of
North Carolina is an organization composed of stu-
dents and faculty members who are bent upon accur-
ate, intimate acquaintance with the mother State;
with her resources, advantages, opportunities and
achievements, with the production and retention of
wealth and the conversion of wealth into welfare and
well-being, with markets and credits, organization
and co-operative enterprise, with schools and colleges,
churches and Sunday schools, with public health and
sanitation, with the problems of urban and rural life
— with the whole round of conditions, causes and
consequences, forces, agencies and influences, tenden-
cies, drifts and movements that have made the his-
tory we study today and that are making the history
our children will be studying tomorrow.
It is a Know-Your-Home-State Club, devoted to
the study of economic and social problems in North
Carolina. It believes that a proper study for North
Carolinians is North Carolina. It has a worthy,
patriotic pride in the North Carolina that was day-
beforc-yesterday, but also it cherishes a patriotic con-
cern about the North Carolina that is today, and that
will be day-after-tomorrow. It purposes to develop
the round-al)out and the forward look as well as the
rearward look at the home State. The wonderful
story of bygone days in North Carolina has always
had a deservedly large place in University culture.
The North Carolina Club is endeavoring to probe to
the quick and core of the present moment, and to
sound the bottom of the aftertime — to use the words
of Henry the Fourth.
The Home-County Clubs
Affiliated with the North Carolina Club, directly
or indirectly, are the various county clubs of students.
The county clubs or certain members of them are
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
exploring the economic and social problems of their
home counties. So far 59 county booklets have been
prepared for publication in the home papers. In some
instances the county officials are preparing to issue
these county studies in pamphlet form for text-book
use by students in the high schools, by the teachers
in the county institutes, and for thoughtful reading
by the farmers, ministers, bankers, and other busi-
ness people in general.
All told, 173 economic and social studies of state-
wide range have so far been completed in the club
headquarters. The students at work upon a home-
county booklet can quickly assemble from the Club
files exact facts about their county, and show its rank
among the 100 counties of the State in 173 important
particulars. They quickly see whether or not their
county is moving forward, marking time, or lagging
in the rear in essential matters of life and business.
These studies are a quickening experience. They are
a preparation for competent citizenship and effective
The results of the State and County Club studies
appear in brief in the University News Letter, which
goes free once a week the year around to nine thou-
sand readers in North Carolina and in a score or
more of other states.
The Home-County Club-Study Bulletin, Univer-
sity Extension Series No. 9, gives full details of in-
struction for the county clubs.
Two special studies have been given to the public
in University Extension Circular No. 1 — Our Coun-
try Church Problem; and in Circular No. 2 — Our
Carolina Highlanders. Another circular upon
Wealth, Welfare, and Willingness in North Carolina
is ready for the printer.
Country-Life Institutes were treated in the Uni-
versity Extension Bureau Bulletin, No. 16. The
chapters concern the Purposes of Country-Life Insti-
tutes, the Mission of the Country Church, and In-
stitute topics and reading references upon Country
Churches and Sunday Schools; Rural Work and
Wealth; Rural Schools; Rural Health and Sanita-
tion; Rural Recreation, and Rural Organization.
The activities of the Club have stimulated local
interest throughout the state ; notably in Cherryville
township, Gaston county, and in Swain, Watauga,
and Alleghany, where small groups of devoted teach- -
ers and ministers have been busy of late arousing
their constituencies to the necessity for community
self-knowledge and constructive co-operative effort
for progress and prosperity.
The attention of chambers of commerce has been
arrested by the 29 county studies showing the self-de-
fensive interest of city centers in Local Markets for
Home-raised Food and Feed Supplies, notably in
Charlotte, Raleigh, and Wilmington, where vigor-
ous campaigns are now under way in behalf of farm
prosperity in the surrounding trade territories. Field
surveys of Orange, the home county of the Univer-
sity, have actively involved the Carolina Club mem-
bers, the Chapel Hill Community Club, the county
school board and the State and Federal authorities —
some four hundred people all told.
The results of this investigative, educative, and
constructive campaign will be given to the public in
the early spring in a University Extension bulletin
under the title, Orange County: Economic and Social.
Co-operative effort by country people under min-
isterial leadership in behalf of country well-being
has been stimulated by the Country-Life Institute
at the Summer School of the University in 1916, and
by the Country-Life Bulletin which gives in the
lai'ge and in detail this fructifying idea of Rev. T.
S. Coble, of Davie county.
The Civic and Social Mind
In conclusion the studies of the State and county
clubs are full of surprises. They are adventures in
a new field of University learning. They are micro-
scopic studies of the economic and social problems of
small familiar areas. They are a necessary prepara-
tion for the telescopic study of academic theories and
a necessary accompaniment of work in general eco-
nomics and sociology.
University Extension Activities
These activities of the State and County Clubs are
a detail of the large purpose of the University to
serve the State within and beyond college walls. The
paragraphs that follow indicate in the briefest possi-
ble way other phases of this state-wide service.
During the last summer for 15 weeks two Travel-
ing Medical Schools for practicing physicians were
conducted under the direction of the University au-
thorities and the State Board of Health. They were
taught by Drs. Lewis Webb Hill, of Harvard, and
Jesse R. Gerstley, of Northwestern University. One
huudi-ed and eighty-five physicians in 12 counties re-
ceived instruction and clinical experience In Chil-
dren's Diseases. They got for $30 apiece what would
have cost them $400 or more In the medical schools
of the North and West.
For ten years or so student groups have kept alive
seven country schools within a radius of six miles
of the University. Last fall they taught six moon-

light schools with 300 pupils enrolled. They con-
ducted a Sunday school, a night school, a debating so-
ciety, and a Y. M. C. A. for the negroes of the com-

THE WEIL LECTURES
Dr. James A. MacDonald Editor of the Toronto Globe Delivers Second Series of Weil Lectures
on the North American Idea
The second series of lectures on the Weil Founda-
tion was delivered at the University on November
15, 16 and 17 by Dr. James A. Macdonald, editor of
the Toronto Globe. The Weil lectures pertain, as a
rule, to some phase of American citizenship. Dr.
Macdonald took as the general subject for his lectures
this year, "The North American Idea." He first
showed this idea at work in the early American
colonies, then traced its growth and expansion in
Canada, and in the last lecture discussed America
in her relation to international problems.
Defining the North American Idea as "The Eight
of a Free People to Govern Themselves," the speaker
showed how in North America only Canada and the
United States stands as the exponents of this idea.
"Mexico," he said, "shares in the geography of North
America, but not in its idea. The people of Mexico
have not come to their own in the North American
inheritance of democratic self-government. The
North American Idea as yet finds no directing and
controlling place in the Mexican mind."
Dr. Macdonald believes that the American Re-
public and the Canadian Dominion agree in this:
"They each gave a chance to the released and irre-
pressible idea of freedom, the idea which disturbed
the autocracies of Europe and began their overthrow
long before America played any part in the history
of the world. These two North American democra-
cies are indeed Europe's second chance."
The birth and growth of the North American idea
was clearly traced by Dr. Macdonald, on November
15th, as follows:
It was in the power of their common ideas, not
by the blood of their common ancestry — their domi-
nant ideas of life and of law and of liberty — -that the
American colonies of Britain first separated in their
thought from their mother country, and then united
among themselves in their common struggle for the
realities of political self-government in the last half
of the eighteenth century. And so it was that the
American Revolution and the American Republic
were both alike the product and the purpose of ideas,
of vital and energizing world ideas.
And it is by their community of dominant ideas,
and not because blood is thicker than water — the
ideas which express themselves in their common in-
stitutions of international law and liberty and life —
that these two self-governing nations of North Amer-
ica are bound together, indissolubly bound together,
no matter what war-spectres may hover about, for
the defense and for the supremacy of our North
American civilization. Our bond of union is our
North American idea.
More than that. It is by the ties of their great
ideas, not by the secret diplomacies or by the partizan
policies of their presidents or premiers, that the peo-
ples of the United States and Canada are bound up
in the great bundle of life with all the free peoples
of the English-speaking fraternity over all the world.
The idea of freedom is the badge of their brother-
And wider still. When the ideas of personal liV
erty, and of political self-government, and of national
integrity, are made the inalienable right, the unchal-
lenged heritage, of all people on every continent;
when every little nationality, distinctive and free in
its own individual life, siiail feel secure against the
ambition and the greed of the large and the powerful ;
and when the North American idea, cleansed from

ing world, the whole commonwealth of the British

can Republic, come together into their full member-

I speak with the utmost deliberateness. I speak
them at a time when the whole sky of all the world is
filled with the fiei'ce shriekings of a world war. I
speak them as a Canadian, while all Canada is strain-
ing at every nerve, and the sons of Canada, by the
hundreds and the thous:inds, are falling in the
trenches and at the battlefronts of France and
Flanders, fighting and falling as representatives of
North American democracy, in defense of this very
North American idea, the right of the free people of
Belgium to live their own life and to govei-n them-
And I speak of the world commonwealth of all
peoples, and of America's world obligations, in the
Lectureship established for the exposition of Ameri-
can Citizenship, in this State University of North
Carolina, a State which stands, and always has stood,
for its own sovereignty and for the sovereign rights
of every other State within the Confederation.
And why do I so speak, and at such a time? It
is because I woixld have you men of the University,
and all who may hear these lectures, or who may read
them on the printed page, believe this one thing, and
believe it supremely, that, in the long run, and in the
ultimate end, dominion among the nations and the
victory of the world shall not be with the dripping
sword or with the eighteen-inch gim, but with the
spiritual powers of free peoples, who, for themselves
and for their neighbors, are loyal to the world idea.
Ideas are immortal, nob brute forces, and not armed
legions. When the last hundred thousand shall have
fired its last shot and fallen into its last grave, then
shall world ideas gather up the shattered fragments of
the world's civilization, and piece together the vio-
lated enactments of world law, so that, out of the
wreck and ruin it seems now, there may come a new
world of free nations, in which every fj-ee people
shall have the right to govern themselves. It is to
that event these lectures look. For that far-oif divine
event the North American idea was released in the
mind of the world.
Dr. Maedonald on November 10th reviewed the
important events in the history of the Canadian Dom-
inion. He stated that Canada was the first colony of
any empire in all the world's history to come to na-
tional self-government without revolution, without
separation, and without sacrificing the background of
the nation's history. Through a half-century of con-
fusion and conflict the Canadians came up to the
rights of national autonomy secured through the
British North American Act of 1867. He showed
how the Anglo-Saxon idea of government had pre-
vailed there, and how Canada had carried this idea
even with her upon the battlefields of Europe.
Doctor Maedonald brought the lectures to a close
Taking as his theme "The North American Idea in
America's Internationalism," the speaker declared
this internationalism to be America's gi-eatest
achievement. "It is the chiefest thing America has
to show. It is the noblest expression of the North

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
CAROLINA WINS FROM VIRGINIA
Tar Heels Returning from Richmond Bring With Them First Victory Over Ancient
Rival Since 1905
A brilliant attack, au iinpenotrable line and ex-
cellent interference gave Carolina a 7-0 score over
Virginia on Thanksgiving Day, and sent the wearers
of the White and Blue back home victorious for the
first time in eleven rears. Tlie play which brought
about this long-hoped-for result and caused pande-
monium to break louse among the thousands of Tar
Heel supporters came in the third quarter when
Quarter Back Williams gave the signal for Folger
to carry the ball. Ho caught it sjuarely, standing in
punt formation, and dashed towards Virginia's left
end. Three men dived at him and reached for his
heels. Another hurled himself at the runner's waist
and was sent to the ground by a stitf-arm. C. White,
Virginia's quarter back, alone stood between the Tar
Heel and Virginia's goal line. His hands struck the
runner's foot and made him pause for an instant.
Folger straightened himself and with a clear field
aheail completed his run of 52 yards for a touch-
down. Tandy kicked goal, making the s3ore 7-0.
It was Carolina's first victory since 1905 when
she carried home from Norfolk a sc-ore of 17-0. It
was the second time she had scored a touchdown
and the fourth time she had scored at all during eight
_years of play. In 190G and 1909 there were no
games between the two institutions.
The Review reproduces herewith, from the Bich-
))wnd A^ews Leader, an analysis of the game by Frank
Dobson, Kichmond College coach and field judge of
the Virginia-Carolina game:
It would be almost impossible to stage a more
interesting game of football than the 191 <i Virginia-
Carolina game, and while the score by no means rep-
resents the ditference in the two teams, the fact re-
mains that under existing conditions Carolina had
her hands full to defeat her ancient rival.
The first real break in the game was to Carolina's
advantage, when Thurmau juggled Churchman's
pass following Folger's fourth punt to Wagenknight
in the first quarter. The; punt was well-placed, and
Wagenknight attempted to pick it up and run, after
the entire Carolina team was down upon him.
W^hen Thurman could not get his kick away he
was downed directly under the cross-liar on his two-
yard line, making it inipossii)le to punt on the next
play. However, two plays by Ivinsolving, one a very
dangerous play, put Thurman in a position to kick.
Williams had a golden opportunity to "fair catch"
Thurman's punt, which only carried to the thirty-
yard line, and which would have given Tandy au
easy try at goal from drop kick. But he chose to
run it back, which netted him nothing. After two
plays Tandy was called back and failed to drop kick
from scrimmage, so no advantage was taken of the
During the balance of the game no breaks of any
importance occurred, although C. White was very
fortunate to recover his own fumble in the third
Thurman Punts Well
The punting of Folger and Thurman was not con-
sistently good, although each got oil' a couple of long
ones, the best one being Thurman's punt in the second
quarter, which carried sixty-eight yards from point
of delivery; his second best came also in the second
quarter, carrying sixty yards. The others ranged
from twenty-four yards to forty. The majority of
the punts were not discounted by run backs, for both
teams seemed to be satisfied with letting the ball hit
the ground first, which gave the kicking side a great
Little Variety in Attack
The two teams offered very little variety of attack,
but the great difference was in the polish of the Caro-
lina scheme and the lack of polish in the Virginia
offense. Carolina showed the great possibilities of
the game's best formation (the kick formation), and
with it they had a distinct advantage over Virginia
in this Folger boy, who was used as a threat as nuich
as an actual means of advancing the ball from it. In
fact, with two exceptions, he gained very little ground
on end runs from a kicker's position. He can kick,
pass and run, all of which made the clever handling
of the ball Ijy Williams and the plunges of Tennent
all the more effective.
Carolina used an unbalanced line on kick and reg-
ular formations, the latter giving Folger the best op-
portunity to get loose off'-tackle.
Runs Team Well
Williams used Folger and Tennent cleverly and
his choice of plays, with a couple of exceptions, was
good, much better, in fact, than those of Wagen-
knight, his first opponent.
Open Up Virginia's Line
Carolina was aided materially by excellent lino
play in all of her plays. The forwards opened up
big holes, especially through center and between
guard and tackle. On end runs the interference from
the line was great.
The only feature of Virginia's offense that eclipsed
Carolina's was the clean handling and accurate pass-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ing in executing forward passes, the best of these
being the pass by C. White, retreating from his po-
sition, under the center, and passing beyond Folger
to J. White.
Carolina didn't resort to this game much, but none
of her tries were as well-phiced as Virginia's.
No plainer offense than 'V^irginia's could be used,
but it takes great power to make it go. This they
lacked. The interference was poor and on several
occasions Gooch was stopped by one of his interferers
as he was about to reverse the field on an end run,
after getting clear of the forwards.
On defense again Carolina clearly outplayed Vir-
ginia. The line charged more as a unit and the ends
were alert and fast. Time after time some Carolina
lineman would break through and catch the backs be-
fore they reached the line of scrimmage. Harrell,
Tayloe and Grimes were especially active, and Cap-
tain Tandy divided his time profitably between cen-
ter and end on defensive, going to the latter position
late in the game when Carolina opened wp her defense
to meet Virginia's open game.
Against the airtight line formation Carolina pre-
sented, Virginia used a much too open defense, which
made the quick oj^enings from kick formation so suc-
cessful. The most active forward for Virginia was
Coleman, and while there were many yards gained
inside and outside of him, and all the others, in fact,
his covering of punts was the feature of Virginia's
The condition of the field was more of a disadvan-
tage to Carolina than to Virginia, since a slippery
field makes defense stronger than offense. A dry
field would most likely have given Carolina an op-
portunity to show just how much better than Vir-
ginia she was.
Virginia fought hard throughout the game, but no
amount of fight could offset the dash and precision
of the Carolina team.

ATLANTA ALUMNI NOTES
An alumnus of the University living in Atlanta
sends the Review the following notes of interest
concerning University men in Atlanta :
On September 30, 1916, L. B. Lockhart, '04,
married Miss Louisa Hamilton, of Atlanta, the cere-
mony being performed by Dr. C. B. Wilmer at St.
Luke's Episcopal Church. T. B. Lligdon, '05, was
best man. Among the ushers was C. E. Betts. '05.
Mr. Lockhart is proprietor of the Lockhart Labora-
tories and has built up a very profitable business,
extending over all the Southeastern States.
A new addition to the University alumni of At-
lanta is J. A. McKay, '11, who, this year, was added
to the teaching staff of Tech. High School. W. LI.
McKinnou, '07, is now living in xVtlanta and is a
city salesman for the United States Tire Company.
H. K. Clouts, '09, is now with the Fairbanks-Morse
Company, of Atlanta.
Dr. Archibald Henderson, on October 17, deliv-
ered an address to the Georgia Library Association
at the Carnegie Library of Atlanta. His address
was on the subject of the influence and development
of the modern drama and was listened to by a large
and attentive audience, including members of the
faculties of the University of Georgia and of Georgia
Lavender R. Ray, of the class of 1863, died on
May 27, 1910, at his home in Atlanta. He was one
of the members of that class who received their di-
plomas in 1911, he having enlisted in the Confeder-
ate army before graduation during the Civil War.
He was a well known member of the Atlanta bar and
served for several years in the State Legislature as
Senator from the 36th District. In 1871 he married
Miss Annie Felder, of Amerieus, Georgia; and she
and their daughter, ^liss Ruby Felder Ray, are his
only surviving immediate relatives.
The University football team played its annual
game with Georgia Tech here on October 21st, losing
by the score of 10 to 6. The Carolina team, how-
ever, showed a much better brand of football than they
displayed in the game with Tech here last year. In
fact, but for an unfortuiuite break or two in the luck,
the Tar Heels would have won the game. The work
of Tandy, Tennent and Folger was especially of the
kind that delights the heart of a football fan. Caro-
lina men hope to see them in action here again next
The class of 1916 has added several new members
to the alumni colony in Atlanta. Among them are
G. W. Smith, who is now with the Southern Bell
Telephone Company; Preston Epps and O. L. Go-
forth. Furman Angel, '16, and W. H. Snell, Phar.
'16, have also recently located in Atlanta, Furman
Angel now lieing a junior in the Emory University
John Y. Smith, Law '05, was, on November 7th,
elected a member of the State Legislature for Fulton
County. Other alumni practicing law in Atlanta are
Shepard Bryan, V. A. Batcbelor, Daniel G. Fowle,
Jerome Moore and T. B. Higdon.
On October 11, the Alumni Association of Atlanta
held its annual meeting in the Chamber of Com-
merce. The following officers were elected to serve
for the ensuing year : President, Dr. Michael Hoke,
'93 ; vice-president, T. B. Higdon, '05 ; secretarv, J.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
A very useful eoiuj)ilation of rcjiresentative selec-
tions from leading American writers who have writ-
ten principally in prose is "The Chief American
Prose Writers," edited by Associate Professor Poer-
ster (Houghton Mifflin Co.) The names included
are Franklin, Irving, Cooper, Poe, Hawthorne,
Emerson, Thoreau, Lcfvvell and Holmes. Other names
that properly deserve inclusion in such a list are
missing — some for one reason, some for another ; the
insuperable barrier of the copyright would doubtless
account for the absence of a few.
The three objects of the author have been very
satisfactorily attained: to collect liberal selections,
in sufficient number to prove representative, especial-
ly such deserving selections as are well nigh inacces-
sible. It is pointed out that the thirty-eight selections
which constitute the book represent a score or more of
separate volumes. The selections are very sparsely
annotated ; and the reading lists at the end are com-
mendably exiguous. On the whole, a volume which
one does not hesitate to j)ronounc.e "standard" at
birth for use in colleges and universities. The man-
in-the-street will also greatly be benefited in the pe-
rusal of these carefully collected "specimens."
A very useful little handbook for the student of
pharmacy who has "small Latin" or none at all, is
"Latin for Pharmacists" (P. Blakiston's Son & Co.,
Phila.), by Professors Howe and Beard. The first
part of the book is given over to nineteen lessons
serving as an introduction to the reading and under-
standing of Latin, with the omission of everything
not useful to the pharmacist. The second part (pp.
73 to 132) consists of reference lists, word studies,
vocabularies, etc. — namely, such jiaraphernalia as
will be of actual service to the practicing pharma-
cist, as well as to the college student. The book,
long needed, is at present in use in this University.
A 23articularly attractive French reader, prepared
after a novel plan, is La, Belle France, by Adolphe
de Monvert (Allyn and Brown). In this noble cog-
nomen, we recognize without difficulty the fine Belg-
ian hand of our former colleague, Professor Adolf
Vermont. The book was written in France by the
author and a companion; and the incidents observed
and spots visited are gracefully and brightly describ-
ed. This is largely due to the fact that "notes of
the various incidents were made on the spot and
written out while the recollection was fresh in mind."
The illustrations, which were prepared and arranged
by Charles H. Munson, were taken on the spot; and
thus serve as a fitting pictorial "illustration" of the
text. There are excellent "notes" on difficult points
of language in the text, and an adequate vocabulary.
This reader for beginners bids fair to attain a very
wide sale, both on the basis of its individual merits
and the school adoptions to date.
A new book by Professor H. H. Home, of New
York University, formerly in the faculty of this in-
stitution, has just come from the press of the Mac-
millan Co., New York: "Story-Telling, Questioning
and Studying." This little volume of one hundred
and seventy-seven pages, is a close and intensive
study of three school arts. Rightly understood, it is
a sort of laboratory manual, of the higher sort, for
the stimulus and guidance of the teacher. The prob-
lems, difficulties, and solutions are set forth effective-
ly and succinctly, with a wealth of illustration ; the
background of culture adds a touch of richness to the
crisp directions. Pedagogically, a very useful man-
ual — one that will open the eyes of many a teacher,
as well as of many a pupil.
DR. SPINGARN LECTURES ON LITERARY
Advanced students in English have done more
"real thinking" during the past week than in all the
rest of their lives, and for the first time have acquired
"points of view" as a result of a series of lectures by
Dr. J. E. Spingarn, formerly of Columbia Uni-
versity, here each afternoon this week. Literary
Criticism was the general topic, and Dr. Spin-
garn traced it from Greece to the present as fol-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
lows: (1) Criticism in Greece and Rome, (2) From
the Middle Ages till the Eighteenth Century, (3)
The Eomantic Period, (4) The Nineteenth Century,
(5) The Xcw Criticism.
It was in the last lecture on Friday that Dr. Spin-
garn, after tracing the history of criticism from
Aristotle, through Horace, Boileau, Crocc, Schlegel,
Coleridge and others, gave his own modern concep-
tion of criticism.
"We have done with all rules," he said, "we have
done with the slicing of literature into compartments
marked comedy, tragedy, etc., we have done with
ahstractions and technique as separate from the art
itself. Aesthetic judgment and artistic creation have
become one and the same."
The seminar was given especially for candidates
for Honors in English and was in line with the new
work being done this year by the committee on de-
grees with distinction. — Tar Heel, Nov. 25th.
NEWSPAPER MEN HOLD INSTITUTE
In the State Newspaper Institute, held at the Uni-
versity the second week in December, the University
had its first opportunity to come into intimate con-
tact with the journalists of the State. The institute
was designed to bring to the campus men and women
engaged in all aspects of the newspaper business that
they might confer and thresh out some of the problems
vital to their work.
More than one hundred editors attended the Insti-
tute during some part of the sessions. Six meetings
in all were held, four day meetings, with well-known
state editors on the programs, and two evening meet-
ings with distinguished speakers from outside the
Hon. William Howard Taft was the speaker on
Thursday night, and Dean Walter Williams, of Mis-
souri and Director Talcott Williams, of the Columbia
University School of Journalism delivered the ad-
dresses Friday night. Don C. Seitz, business man-
ager of the New York World, spoke Saturday morn-
ing on the Business End of Newspaper flaking. Mr.
Walter H. Savory, of the Mergenthaler Linotype
Company, also addressed the Institute Saturday on
Newspaper and Advertising Agencies.
All visitors were entertained in Chapel Hill homes.
News of the meeting was given in a special daily
paper, published by the students in_the jorunalism
courses of the University on each of the three after-
noons. The paper was entitled Press Institute News.
EX-PRESIDENT TAFT SPEAKS
One of the most pleasing features connected with
the Newspaper Institute was the address of Ex-
President Taft, December 7, on "Our World Rela-
tions," which was delivered before a packed house in
Gerrard Hall. Since his visit in Chapel Hill nearly
two years ago for a series of three lectures, Mr. Taft
has ranked easily as one of the most popiilar men
appearing before University audiences.
In his address, Mr. Taft traced briefly the history
of the United States in her relations with otlier coun-
tries. He showed that in all of her past wars the
United States had been woefully unprepared and
that today the American people are gradually com-
ing to favor a policy of preparedness. Mr. Taft
pointed out that as our country has been expanding
from thirteen states to forty-eight, our interests have
become more varied and our responsibility greater.
"Direct rcsponsiliility attaches to the United States
for the Philippines, iVlaska, Porto Rico, Cuba and
Hawaii. The Monroe Doctrine or Mexico may either
involve us in war at any time," he declared. "Also
the great European conflict may involve our country
in war." Mr. Taft advocated a real preparedness
which would fit our nation for any emergencies which
might arise in the maintaining of our proper world
relations. He concluded his address by advocating
the establishment of the League of Nations to En-

Oscar R. Rand, '08, sends the Review the following account
of the meeting of the Montgomery Alumni Association on
On the evening of October 12, the Montgomery alumni
assembled at the home of Dr. H. B. Battle, '81, to add to the
general celebration of that day an expression of their own
sense of appreciation and devotion.
A very enjoyable dinner was followed by an informal meet-
ing of the Association. Present day University affairs were
discussed and reminiscences of college days indulged in. The
Association gave expression to its hearty approval of the
policies of the new administration, and to its confident be-
lief that the career of wider usefulness upon which tho Uni-
versity has entered will prove of value alike to the slate and
The meeting terminated at a late hour with many expres-
sions of thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Battle for their charming
hospitality, and of renewed allegiance to the University and
the ideals which she seeks to inculcate.
It might not be amiss to say, in conclusion, that the Mont-
gomery Association holds its meetings regularly at the home
of Dr. Battle, which the members have come to regard as the
North Carolina embassy in that city of the far South which
is so rich in historic memories. The members of the Associa-
tion when at this "embassy" feel as if they were on North
Carolina soil, and to this charming illusion an added touch
of realism is given by the thought of the relation which Dr.
Battle bears to that grand old man who has been so beauti-
fully described as a "witness of his own immortality."

One night last month the 28 members of '16 who are back
on the Hill got together for one more class smoker. Pres.
Graham and Prof. Williams were present and contributed of
their experience and vision to the inspiration and ideals of the
group. Tlie old '16 comradship was there and the hour was
filled with delightful reminiscences of the past and with mutual
determination for the future.
In the Jefferson on Thanksgiving Day there appeared just
over the entrance to the former "Buffet" the banner of the
Class of 1916. Soon numerous individuals were seen wearing
little white ribbons with the legend U. N. C. '16. In the line
that marched out to the game there was a group of the very
happy beribboned men, and on the top row of the Carolina
bleachers the bunch bobbed up again. (After the game —
who knows anything that happened then?' These were the
obvious symptoms of a very deep-seated disturbance — that
'16 spirit. The class that began its career as an alumni class
by insuring itself for the benefit of the University, the class
that sent 30 per cent of its members back to the Hill for

Shakespeare speaking: (not Cy Thonipsoti):
"The evil men do lives after them; the good
Is oft interred with their bones."
We have nothing against Shakespeare. In fact, we remember him very pleasantly as the person who made
it possible for tis to graduate. The "four" we got on English 5 was just the right change.
But, in the name of truth, we must saj- that he is more than half wrong about the final disposition of the
good in a man.— He had not heard of the Alumni Loyalty Fund— That is absolute insurance that the
good men do is made immortal through the best of the 3'oung men of succeeding generations. A hun.
dred years after a man "lies mouldering in the grave" the good in him "goes marching on."
The Alumni Fund provides a way for everj' man who wants to perpetuate the Univer.sity and strengthen
the spirit of the University, to do it; to live on through it; and at the same time to return to the Uni-
versity a part of what he received when he most needed help.
Two ways to do this big business, both easy:
(1) A small annual subscription;
(2) A bequest in your will— whatever the size, it will do its proportionate work.
The princijial of the Fund will not be used. The interest to be used only for the largest common good.
Shakespeare also said: "If 'twere done, 'twere well 'twere done quickly!"
He was batting a thousand when he said that!

It Happens in the Best of Offices
"Here you Andrew Jackson Jones," shouted Colonel Duncan at a
certain somber part of his office equipment, "wake up and crank yourself
for I'm going to send you out for a case of self-starters."
"Foh a case of What boss ?" queried A. Jackson Jones.
"No, not a case of 'What,' nor for a case of 'When,' but for a case
of bottled energy. Don't you understand me? A dozen bottles of this
new high speed drink. This pure juice-of-the-fruit Stuff that makes you
so glad there's work to do, you soon have it done and are out looking for
"I don't need none o' that, boss, honest I don't. I was just goin'
to get to work when you called me."
"Alright, I'll remember that. You don't need to have any, but I
think the rest of us will enjoy it, so you go out and get a case of Pepsi-
"PEPSI-COLA ! That's diffe'nt. You didn't say Pepsi-Cola befo',
boss, 'cause I'd turn a bottle inside out to get a drink o' that !"
"Well, hurry along. We must drive this heat out of the office and
catch up on the work, and the only way I know how to do those two things
is for each of us to cool off and brace up on Pepsi-Cola."
Pepsi-Cola is served at all soda fountains and carbonated in bottles.
