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.

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, 
and varsity. 

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, 



score of 7-0. The two teams were fairly matched, and 
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. 


The Review's special field, if it has any, is. not 
the history' of Carolina athletics. jSTeverthelefs, it 
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 

. nnn 

Co-incident with the adoption of the one-year 

rule came the organization of the Freshman Eleven.

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

new athletic chapter. ±>iit we 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 




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 



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. 


On December 19 th Ex-President K. P. Battle 
celebrated his eighty-fifth birthday. The occasion 

was fittingly remembered by the 
MANY HAP- student body and by friends in the 
PY RETURNS .., / ^, i , ,i o. , 

village and throughout the btate. 

The Review joins his host of friends in wishing 
him many happy returns of the day. 


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 
schedule dates. 

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 



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 
public service. 


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. 
Field Work 

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- 
munity. These field activities have been under the 
direct guidance of the University Y. M. C. A. secre- 

The University Summer School of 1916 enrolled 
1052 teachers from 93 counties. Two hundred and 
fifty-seven of these students, representing 34 insti- 
tutions, were doing college degree work. 

The University Debating Union in 1916 involved 
1,300 young debaters in 325 high schools, and they 
reached a total of 80,000 people in North Carolina 

The University Correspondence School in 1915-16 
offered 37 courses and served 141 busy students who 
could not get to the University. 

Faculty members in answer to special invitations 
made addresses to nearly 200 audiences throughout 
the State. 

In addition, boohs and pamphlets from the Exten- 
sion Bureau office, and letters giving detailed infor- 
mation and instruction about a great variety of mat- 
ters went to the countless correspondents in every 
nook and corner of the State. Practically every mem- 
ber of the University faculty is- involved in this free 
correspondence service. 


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 



the corrosions of cynicism and prejudice, and from 
the hard erustings of selfishness, shall have become 
the World Idea, inspiring the world's thinking, and 
organizing the world's j^ower in defense of the world 
right of every free-minded people everywdiere to 
govern themselves — when that day of the larger Idea 
dawns, then shall the fraternity of the English-speak- 
ing world, the whole commonwealth of the British 
Empire, and the whole commonwealth of the Ameri- 
can Republic, come together into their full member- 
ship in the world brotherhood of all nations, sharers 
together in that world commonwealth of all peoples, 
in which the welfare of each shall be the common 
obligation of all, and the prosperity of the greatest 
shall depend on the perfect freedom and equal justice 
of the least. In that wider sweep of the world life, 
and in that farther range of the world mind, the 
North American idea shall find itself and shall have 
its chance. 

These words of wide range and of large meaning 
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 
November 17th. 

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 
American Idea." 


Three hundred schools have enrolled in the High 
School Debating Union of North Carolina for the 
big contest next spring on the question of the owner- 
ship and operation of the railways by the Federal 
Government. A bulletin of 100 pages containing 
arguments, pro and con, and outlines on this query 
is now in press and will be ready for the st^hools by 
January 1st. 

Inspired by the success of the Debating Union in 
North Carolina, the University of Kentucky is now 
organizing a state-wide debating union for the Ken- 
tucky high schools, and the Alabama Polytechnic 
Institute is organizing a similar debating system for 
the Alabama high schools. The query to be discussed 
in Kentucky and Alabama is the same as that to be 
discussed in North Carolina. 


Many of the alumni will be pained to hear of the 
death of Mrs. Annie Louise Hume, widow of the late 
Dr. Thos. Hume, at her home in Asheville on Decem- 
ber 10th. She had been ill for more than two years. 
She is survived by Thos. Hume, Jr., and her three 
daughters, Mrs. W. E. Vance, of the University of 
Minnesota, Miss Mary Gregory Hume, of the Oak- 
hurst School, and Miss Helen Hume, of Asheville. 




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- 



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. 

Outcharges Virginia 

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 
defensive play. 

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.

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 
]\redical School." 

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. 
W. Speas, '08. 




Alumni ajul members of the faculty of the Uni- 
versity took a ])roiniiient part in the annual meeting 
of the Xorth Carolina Teachers' x\.ssembly which was 
held at Raleigh, ISTovember 29-December 1.

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. 


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- 



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. 


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. 


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- 
force Peace.

Oscar R. Rand, '08, sends the Review the following account 
of the meeting of the Montgomery Alumni Association on 
October 12: 

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 
graduate work ; also sent over 50 per cent of its number to 
Richmond on Thanksgiving Day.

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!

"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.
