In order that the University may do the larger

the State and South and which it
WHAT WE ARE , . , . , , .,
ASKING FOR ls ea S er to undertake provided the
means are supplied, the President
and the Trustees, after careful study, have asked the
Legislature for an annual appropriation of $105,000
for maintenance and a building fund of $100,000 a
year for the next five years. This request is in no
sense padded. It represents the real needs of the Uni-
versity if it is to maintain its standards and meet
the demands which the State daily makes upon it and
which increase with the passing of every hour.

The undersigned are a committee from the Gen-
eral University Alumni Association to co-operate
with the Legislative Committee of the Trustees in
securing from the Legislature adequate appropria-
tions for the University. The Trustees ask for:
1. An annual appropriation of $165,000 for
2. A building fund of $100,000 a year for the next
These figures are the least that the University's
pressing needs, economically administered, urgently
demand. Please bear this constantly in mind.
Wc hope that every alumnus will become active in
helping to secure favorable action on these requests.
We can do this in the following ways:
1. By having your local alumni association pe-
tition the Legislature to make the appropriation ask-
2. By seeing personally, and by writing to indi-
vidual legislators, especially members of the Appro-
priations Committee, urging them to grant the
3. By talking constantly about the University's
needs and inducing other persons, especially those
who are not alumni, to interest themselves in the
same way in the University.
4. By securing editorial expression in your local
papers in support of these requests.
Do not urge merely "liberal appropriations," but
insist upon the specific, concrete amount asked for
by the Trustees.
The University is facing a crisis. Whether it is
to hold its own among the foremost Southern univer-
sities, continuing to be the pride and glory of the
State, or is to lose its hard-earned place, both abso-
lutely and comparatively, depends upon the action
of the present Legislature.
Your committee urge you, therefore, not to delay
in carrying out the suggestions made above.
What we want is action — not action tomorrow —

FAR AND WIDE
We direct the special attention of the alumni to
the "Comments from the Press" found in another
section of this issue of the Re-
view. We do this because we feel
that they (and through them the
people of the State) are entitled to know what the
press of the country thinks of the work of Alma
Mater as summarized in the recent report of Presi-
Clippings from the State press have been purposely
omitted, but we have our files full from dailies and

The reasons for presenting these estimates of the
University are three-fold: 1. To let the State know
what the outside world thinks of the standing of the
University; 2. To show that it possesses leadership
which should be given such financial support as is
essential to its proper expression in the life and wel-
fare of the State; and (3) To stimulate the alumni to
an increased effort to secure this support for it.
The comments referred to above cover various
phases of the University's work. The comment be-

The report of President Graham of the University
of North Carolina puts in vivid relief the inexplic-
able failure of~ a growing State to recognize its own
best intellectual wealth. North Carolina has acted
towards its University exactly as if it had not yet
learned that such an institution performs perhaps
the most permanently valuable of all state govern-
mental functions. For the past two years this most
useful University, with over twelve hundred stu-
dents, has had for maintenance only $115,000 a year
and only $30,000 for permanent improvements. Its
income from all sources was only $220,661, as against
the University of Virginia's $560,258, with a student
body actually smaller than North Carolina. At least
eleven Southern state institutions have larger working-
incomes per student. That of the Universitv of
Mississippi is more than twice as large. Tr Is an
extraordinary record for legislative stupidity ih.it
President Graham uncovers. North Carolina can
not plead the excuse of poverty. For taking her tax-
able property as it is, out of the tax on erery thousand
dollars' worth she appropriates just $.18 for Univer-
sity maintenance, as against Mississippi's $.39 and
Nebraska's $1.98. President Graham appeals to men
of wealth to help the University. But the real call
should be to the people as represented in the legis-
The facts set forth in the following paragraphs in
the University News Letter relative to the funda-
mental matters of taxation and
constitute a challenge to the
intelligence and true patriotism of every alumnus of
the University. To the extent that the alumni are
debtors to the State for benefits received here for
which full financial return was not made, — to that
extent they one and all are obligated to render active
service in striking off the fetters which have bound
the State through the past and which today are
holding it down at the bottom (as compared with
other States) in those particulars which are vital to
the life of a truly great people.
By holding a billion dollars off the tax books we
are of course forced down to government upon a
cheap scale. In 1915, the per capita cost of State
government in North Carolina was $1.76. It was
greater in 46 States. It was less in only one.
This amount per inhabitant means mighty little
for all the necessary purposes of State government
in North Carolina. How little it is appears in the fol-
lowing figures which show what went with our $1.76
per inhabitant in 1915: for highway and recreation
less than 1 cent, for public health and sanitation 5
cents, for the protection of person and property 10
cents, for the conservation and development of re-
sources — mainly agriculture — 11 cents, for general
government — legislative, executive, judicial, upkeep
of public buildings and the like — 14 cents, for gen-
eral expense— old soldier pensions mainly — 25 cents,
for charities, hospitals and corrections 39 cents, and
for public education and libraries 71 cents.
A recent bulletin of the Federal Bureau of Edu-
cation shows that 33 States make a better showing
than North Carolina in daily public school attend-
ance; 38 a better showing in the average number of
days attended; 42 a better showing in the number of
high school students; 35 a better showing in the
number of college students; 46 a better showing in
school property per child; 36 a better showing in
school expenditures per thousand dollars of estimated
wealth ; 45 a better showing in the value of school
property. per child of school age; 45 a better show-
ing in expenditure per child in average daily attend-
ance; 46 a better showing in salaries based on aver-
age daily attendance; 46 a better showing in aver-
age annual salaries paid to teachers; and 44 a better
showing in the length of public school terms. These
facts constitute a challenge to every alumnus.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
February, 1917, was probably the greatest period
of activity ever enjoyed by the University alumni.
Every month during the present
A GREAT MONTH jj th Review has car .

ried a story of valuable jiracti-
cal work "put over" by individual alumni, or asso-
ciations, for the University. .The record for Febru-
ary, however, far overshadows all of the rest.
First: The Mecklenburg Association, organized
for continuous work throughout the year, has under-
taken to help solve the marketing
problem for the county. It has
also arranged six University lyceum lectures, issued
tickets and posters for them, and thus plans to bring
the University faculty and Mecklenburg County to
know each other. Members of the Association have
rendered valuable personal service in connection with
the University appropriation.
Second : The Forsyth Alumni Association has been
especially busy during the past few weeks. In co-
operation with the local school authori-
ties, it has planned and agreed to finance
an economic and school survey of the county, to be
made by the departments of education and economics
of the University. The results will be published in a
pamphlet issued by the alumni. It has circulated
fifty petitions, calling for University support by the
present Legislature. It has invited the President of
the University to come and talk over what can be done
by the alumni during the coming year.
Third: Rocky Mount came handsomelv through
with a practically unanimous collection of Alumni

and 1. \j. Simmons made voluntari-
ly a canvass of the town, giving every alumnus a
chance to join in this fine movement. A check for
$48.50, and sixteen signed annual subscriptions in
addition, was the result. This is the way to make
this fund grow. Every town in the State ought to

In addition to all of this, there has been tremen-

in the State at large. The alumni

the Legislature to give the Univer-

The Alumni Loyalty Fund received during the last

These were in various sums, from $2 to $25, and dis-
tributed all over the country, and from Cuba to China.
Other gifts of interest were a gift of $50 for

$25 for campus improvement, from

Studies in Philology is a journal of scholarship that
has won national recognition. No finer service could
be done for the cause of scholarship in the South and
in the country at large than through a gift that
would give this journal generous and assured support.
Dr. Carpenter was formerly a professor in the Uni-
versity of Chicago. He writes from Santa Barbara,
California, where he is spending the winter. His

Mrs. Emry's gift for beautifying the campus is
equally spontaneous and fine. What has been done
on the campus in the past few years is splendid, but
it is more a suggestion of what may be done, and a
proof of what can be done, than a fulfillment. The
campus can be made a place of wonderful beauty and
inspiration. And it should be made so. It is our
greatest natural asset. Twenty-five thousand dollars
could be as profitably spent on beautifying the cam-
pus as in any other possible way.
During this same fine month of February, the Li-
brarian was authorized to spend $1500 during the
coming year on North Caroliniana and in cataloguing
North Carolina items. This gift is from an alumnus,
and one of the most patriotic men in North Carolina.
Everywhere there is evidence of abundant and in-
telligent desire to help the University be what a
great University ought to be, and what
it cannot be unless its sons are living
epistles of ils teachings. The whole
case for a college is whether its alumni show qualities
of efficiency, citizenship, and service that distinguish
them from men not so trained. Alumni loyalty
'properly understood) is a power for progress that
has as yet been scarcely touched. The college that
can wake it to lull and continuous action will be a
truly great institution.

CLASSES PLAN REUNIONS
The classes which will hold reunions at commence-
ment are: 1857, 1867, 1887, 1892, 1897, 1902. 1907,
1912 and 1916. From these classes committees have
been appointed which are at work on plans for mak-
ing these reunions the biggest and most successful
in the University's history.
Within recent years various classes have set high
standards in the matter of class reunions. The class
of 1902 which perhaps holds the record of all Uni-
versity classes in the percentage of its members who
are lawyers, has had two very successful reunions
and, through a class bulletin issued regularly by R.
A. Merritt, Secretary, has kept its members in touch
with one another since graduation fifteen years ago.
Tiie class of 1909 at its five-year reunion in 1914
came back with great spirit and took possession of tne
campus for several days and of the athletic field for
the presentation of "stunts" on the afternoon of
Alumni Day. The class of 1905 coming back in
numbers to its ten-year reunion in 1915 brought to
Alma Mater a gift of $1,000 which made up the
first gift to the Alumni Loyalty Fund, and was, in
fact, the inspiration for the starting of this fund.
The class of 1911 in the preparation for its five-year
reunion held last commencement and in carrying
through to a splendid conclusion a well-laid plan fur-
nished the most striking instance in reunion history
at Carolina. This class made provision early for se-
curing a large attendance and for having a joyous
time together on the "Hill." The result was a large-
ly attended, altogether successful reunion which
proved to be the chief feature of the Alumni Day
For the reunions of this commencement nine of
the University's most loyal classes are at hand. These
classes from 1S57 to 1916 numbering more than
1100 men are expected to return in great numbers
and to set a new record for succeeding classes.
Each member of these classes is urged to plan now
to be present at his reunion.
The committees from various classes follow:
1857— Rob't Bingham, Jno. W. Graham, Wm. P.
McLean, 1ST. B. Whitfield, G. L. Wimberly.
1867— G. M. Rose, J. G. Young, J. M. Wall.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE McNAIR LECTURES
Dr. Hugh Black Delivers Tenth Series of McNair Lectures
Dr. Hugh Black, distinguished preacher and writer,
delivered the tenth series of lectures under the Mc-
Nair Foundation at the University the first week in
February. Dr. Black chose as his central theme,
"The Great Quest inns of Life," which he inter-
preted under the several headings of Faith, Revela-
tion, ami Prayer, or, as he put it, "Is God?" "Has
"Should Man Say to God?"
In the first lecture Dr. Black suggested this prob-
lem : Given Self: To Find God. This, he declared, to
be the great question of 1 a question which
the book of J oh stated so clearly. lie showed the
of a universe with purpose in it, declaring that
the mechanistic idea of the world must lead to de-
spair and disgust with life.
"The purpose of the lectures," declared Dr Black,
"is to give a point of view, and therefore there is
nothing dogmatic about them except the assurance
with which one states his own point of view. It
means one's reaction to the universe, and that means
religion. Faith is net simply the intellectual ac-
ceptance of propositions but is an attitude of the
soul and the life."
The necessity of faith was clearly shown by the
speaker. "We cannot state tic as one of faith
on the one side and unbelief on the other. It is faith,
anyway. Either you have a world without any pur-
pose in it and life without any real meaning; or, on
the other hand, you have a world that means some-
thing and life becomes an arena of great endeavor.
"Your faith means the side on which you put the
I ofyourlife. In neither ease can you prove it.
In the last issue, we are held between the horns of
that inflexible dilemma."'
The authority of law and its place in the scheme
of things was vigorously set forth in the second lec-
ture. "1 h ion the world is now faced with,"
said Dr. Black, "is this: 'Is haw possible?' Does in-
ternational law any lunger mean anything .'" He
laid special emphasis en the matter of retribution.
"<!od hath said," he a : "there may be peace
without victory but never peace without punishment.
The Christian end is not peace. I can always
peace by moving back to the point of least resistance.
But no one wants peace with dishonor. Righteous-
ness and law musl finally prevail."
"Whatever the Universe is, it isn't a machine," he
insisted at the beginning of the second lecture. "The
mechanistic idea of the Universe is silly, for with it
the higher nature of man could never have evolved.
It practically means no God." The speaker linked
his subject with the first chapter of (ienesis, which
be declared to lie not history or science or geology,
but poetry. "Mere literalism is the curse of inter-
pretation. This had lived because it is not history
Law means sanctions and prohibitions, as Dr.
Black interprets it. It is not an arbitrary rule im-
pos d by a superior being from without. Mortal man
implies moral law, for temptation forces one's hand
and compels decision. The greatest problem, there-
fore, in all the world is. What has (bid Said? That
add merely follow his nature usually means
his lower nature. We are often enticed by this ques-
tion, he said: "Why should we obey any word from
without when we have impulses and desires within ?"
The answer is that the moral law is a matter of his-
tory — the result of all the past with its rich inherit-
ance. Atheism after all is disbelief in law, or deny-
ing that there is any such thing as external law. The
world would be nothing but a dance of unreason
without a divine purpose
To limit all revelation to the Bible, Dr. Black he-
-. is to do injustnee to both and also to God.
"(lod ceases to lie unless he continues to make him-
self known. Revelation doesn't mean (bid's writing
a book, though revelation may be presened in a book
as well as in a spiritual life."
We arc on the eve of a new spiritual interpretation
of life,, the lecturer thought. The word dynamics
has begun to replace the word mechanics. W

of statics but of dynamics. Science itself i- ap-

In the third lecture. Dr. Black said that, "War has
made men who thought there was no room for re-
i feel the need of something to hold on to." In
the tin of today sense is still at war with soul.
"You see in history and know in experience the clash
of opposing ideals. When a moral issue arises it di-
vides the world. You can't straddle the line — there
is no neutrality possible. We can't accept the law of
the jungle where might makes right. We refuse to be-
lieve in such a world, and, if need be, we refuse to
live in it."
Continuing, he said : "We individuals like to live
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
in a static world, to have a settled social state. But
every now and then the barriers are broken and we
realize that we are not in a static world." Speaking
of prayer, Dr. Black asserted that we know too little
about anything to be able or to desire to choke off
instincts in ourselves and others. Anyone who en-
deavors to choke off these natural instincts may be
playing a part more cruel than that of the dogmatist.
To keep humanity from praying would be self-de-
struction of the moral life. "Prayer is the attitude
of yourself toward life in the mass. It is the ex-
pression of one's ideals. Prayer is an attitude, a
life. That constant ongoing of desire and expecta-
tion in our work is prayer."
Dr. Black is now professor in the Union Theo-
logical Seminary. .New York. During his ten years
in New York he has made himself famous on this
side of the water as a preacher and writer. Before
coming to America he was pastor of St. George's Free
Church, Edinburgh, Scotland, where he won great
renown. He is the author of many books, his best
known probably being "Friendship." Dr. Black was
regarded as one of the most popular S] to ap-
pear in Chapel Hill under the McJMair foundation.
STUDIES IN PHILOLOGY EXPANDS
A Great Philological Journal at Carolina— A Gift and an Invitation
The April issue of 8 in Philology will be
unique in that it is to be devoted to a series of studies
in Elizabethan literature and history by men who
have distinguished themselves in these fields. The
similar volume published last April has attracted so
much attention that it is proposed to make the April
issue each year an Elizabethan annual. To this year's
issue some of the foremost American scholars will
contribute, men like Professors Kittredge of Har-

A l'f\v extracts, of many that might he given from
recent letters, show what leading scholars in various
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
institutions think of this journal. Professor F. E.
Schelling of the University of Pennsylvania, says:
"I have read the numbers that you have sent me with
great interest. You are to be congratulated upon
the support of so excellent a journal." Last Septem-
ber Dr. J. Hoops, the distinguished professor of
English Philology in the University of Heidelberg,
wrote, "We highly appreciate the value of your
Studies, and I avail myself of the opportunity to
thank you sincerely for kindly forwarding them reg-
ularly." Other appreciative words from great schol-
ars in foreign universities might be given. Professor
J. M. Manly, himself an editor and the founder of
Modem Philology, published by the University of
Chicago, writes, "I congratulate you on the excellence
of the Studies and on your ability to publish them."
Dr. Walter Miller, Dean of the Graduate School in
the University of Missouri, writes as follows:
Each time a new number appears, my admiration
for the worthy enterprise that you are conducting in-
creases. You men in philological pursuits at the
University of North Carolina are doing splendid
work, and it is most gratifying to see the results put
in so attractive form under your own auspices.
Professor Curtis Hidden Page, of Dartmouth,
who is widely known as editor and author, writes :
I have been much interested personally in a num-
ber of the articles which have appeared in the
Studies, and in fact I have read it rather oftener
than most of the other similar periodicals to which
From reviews, and from personal letters addressed
to authors of essays which have appeared in the last
two years, it would be easy to make further extracts,
but it is better, for certain reasons that will be at
once apparent, to give our space to two letters from
men of great distinction who have written about the
relation of such a journal to the reputation and the
value of the service of the University. Professor G.
L. Kittredge, of Harvard University, wrote a few
weeks ago as follows:
The Studies in Philology, issued by the University
of North Carolina, are creditable in every way, both
to your university and to American scholarship in
general. They are interesting and competent, and
they treat a great variety of subjects of interest to
scholars and literary men. They have certainly added
much to the prestige of the institution."
And Professor W. P. Trent, who founded The
Sewanee Review, and who before going to Columbia
taught for many years in the South, writes of the
value of such a journal to the South:
In my judgment based on some experience, a schol-
arly organ such as you edit is of great effect in wid- -
ening the reputation of a university among other
universities, and to a considerable extent throughout
the general public, and of even greater effect in stim-
ulating creative work among the faculty as well as in
developing in the students and alumni a well ground-
ed pride in the institution. When we add that uni-
versities that do not strive to make contributions to
knowledge seldom or never maintain themselves as
good teaching institutions, and that contributions to
knowledge are more readily made in co-operation
through an authorized organ such as the Studies in
Philology, we have another strong reason for cordial
support by all persons whom the university touches.
In short, I consider that the outlay of time and money
involved in editing and publishing such an organ as
the Studies is amply justified, and I take pleasure in
adding that a personal perusal of the Studies has left
me convinced of its distinct scholarly value. I con-
gratulate you and the University upon the success of
the publication, and I wish it continued prosperity.
With this record and with the certainty that,
grauted the assistance of friends of the University,
the way is open for us to have here one of the great
scholarly journals of America, it should be necessary
only to state the need in order to secure financial
support. Members of the Philological Club repre-
senting both classical and modern languages have im-
portant work under way which should be published
in this journal and not elsewhere. Plans are being
made for other special and unique services similar to
that rendered by the forthcoming Elizabethan miscel-
lany. With the increase in the number of graduate
students in the language departments is the certainty
of securing from young Southern scholars essays
worthy of publication here rather than in the North.
A writer in Science recently defined a university as
a collection of men at work solving the problems that
our universe presents and standing ready to teach to
others the methods of such analysis. The scholar
who deals with language and literature may not pro-
duce results that have the apparent and immediate
application that one finds in much scientific re-
search, but the effect on teaching, on the student, and
on the spiritual life of the nation is not less abiding
in the one than in the other. As Professor Trent re-
marks, "Universities that do not strive to make con-
tributions to knowledge seldom or never maintain
themselves as good teaching institutions." A re-
viewer, speaking of a recent issue of the journal,
referred to it as an illustration of "scholarship with
vision." For this sort of scholarship it stands. It
is the only philological journal in the South. It is
the duty of friends of scholarship in the South to
rally to its support. The April issue, to put the matter
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
concretely, will cost ranch more than the resources of
the journal can afford. There is no endowment; the
income is derived from the University's appropria-
tion, from the subscriptions paid by libraries, and
from private gifts. A Chicago business man of
scholarly training and instincts, who was never con-
nected in any way with the University, has become
so interested in the journal that he has given fifty
dollars toward the expense of the April issue. If
Studies in Philology can so impress a man who has
never been in Chapel Hill and who has no special in-
terest in higher education in the South, is it too
much to expect that some of the alumni may respond
'to this invitation to help ? Every cent of income is
spent for printing and distribution ; there are no ex-
penses for editing; the larger the income, the larger
and more influential the journal. Such subscriptions
to the current expense of publication would be a very
real help, and the attention of the alumni is called
to this excellent opportunity. But the greatest need
is an endowment fund that would insure the perma-
nence of this important part of the service rendered
by the University. Are there not friends or alumni
with the vision to see how through such an endow-
ment the fame of the University may be widened,
the energies of scholars who are charged with the
duty of teaching the records of the spiritual history
of the race may be quickened, and a series of oc-
casional studies may develop into one of the great
scholarly journals of the world.
COMMENTS FROM THE PRESS
The Press of the Nation Finds Carolina Doing Significant Work
From a dozen or more editorials appearing in the
leading papers of the nation, the Review reprints,
in whole or part, a number of clippings which will
be of special interest to the alumni and to all North
Carolinians who are interested in the growth and
widening influence of their University. The extracts
are in the main taken from reviews of the recent re-
port of President Graham to the Trustees and relate
directly to some phase of the University's work pre-
sented in it.
The Coming South in Education
It needs no unusual clearness of vision to see that
the South should be the centre of the next great for-
ward movement in American education. Some of
our Southern States have left so much room among
them for progress, that nearly all men know the un-
filled chambers exist. But it is a different thing
to feel already the currents of activity moving, and
In share in the resolute purpose which can keep them
moving until the void shall be filled by real works of
progress. Of such is the vision which Dr. Edward
K. Graham, the president of the University of North
Carolina, possesses. It appears in each page of his
annual report to the institution's trustees. Looking
ahead to the place which the South should come to
hold in the sun, it makes little difference to President
Graham that North Carolina is giving its university
far less support than other States are providing to
their colleges, or that his institution has only $245
of working income per student whereas Arizona State
University has $1,290. The material support must
come and will mmr, as soon as the people of North
Carolina are rightly awakened to their educational
needs. It is the approach of this awakening which
President Graham observes, and he makes it precede
even his strong plea for money. What he sees first
of all is the new eagerness among his students, and
among the people at large in a State which in five
years has increased its attendance at public high
schools from 5,000 to 10,000, and which in 1916
sent 1,050 students to the University's summer
school, whereas in 1907 it sent thirty-six.
Even these positive assets are of scant concern to
President Graham in their aspects merely as a ma-
terial record. He remarks: "Satisfaction in the
rapidly growing activities and increased size of an
institution should depend not on the fact of growth,
but on the nature of growth." The educator who
keeps this in mind is the man who will do the con-
structive work of making an educational institution
truly great. It is the spirit which one would expect
to see revealed by Dr. Graham. He had prefaced his
whole report with a warning remark that no record of
facts, of material and visible activities, could set
forth their inner nature, the tone and temper of their
spirit, which after all were the main fact. And so
perhaps the record does not specifically sot them
forth, yet it reflects them in line after line. It is
nowhere more clear than in Dr. Graham's para-
graph concerning his faculty :
The center of all these university activities
is the university faculty. The faculty is the
creating and continuing source of all that has
real value in the institution's work. . . No
divinity hedges about it, exempting it from the
normal laws of growth and decay. The group
of persons that compose! it, is unfortunately so
merged and levelled by standardization as some-
what to lose individuality from the outside point
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of view; but the faculty group is made up of
nothing but individuals, each unit, a positive or
negative factor in the sum of the institution's
whole present worth; its genius for investiga-
tion, its power to teach and to impregnate youth
with its passion for truth and the method of
truth-seeking — in a word, for that service that
is the soul of progress in democracy.
Commonplaces these things may be — Dr. Graham
says they are himself — but the moment common-
places of this sort are taken merely as commonplaces,
that moment is the first coming of an unprogressive
complacency, the beginning of the mastery of the
things of a university over its spirit, and the overturn
of that dominance which the purpose should have
over the things entrusted it to operate and control.
All too little of these eternal verities is being ex-
pressed in the annual reports of the typical univer-
sity presidents in the East. The head of a large uni-
versity recently filled his report with an outline of
the ways in which he was going to make his institu-
tion the "world's greatest," and discussed them near-
ly all in terms of money and numbers and buildings.
What President Graham stresses is not these, though
he seeks them most earnestly. His is the construc-
tive vision which sees that it has a real job to ac-
complish, and is not deluded into thinking that it has
merely a stewardship over great things" done in the
past, or that a compilation of any number of facts
can ever be more than a preface to actual thinking.
And in a State that seems broadly awakening to its
need of education, it will need only Graham and a
few other leaders to make of this vision of the South's
coming educational progress a reality. Becoming
such, it may give some Northern jugglers in statis-
tics a beneficent jolt. — Boston Transcript.
An Exchange With the South
The next logical development of the exchange pro-
fessorship idea in our colleges should be the establish-
ment of an exchange between institutions of the
North and the South. Harvard has already its ex-
changes with Europe and with a group of four West-
ern colleges. It is time that we should give like
recognition to a great section of our own country
which has several institutions that are the peers of
many in the North. It is all too little recognized here
what merit such institutions as the University of
Virginia, Tulane, and Vanderbilt represent. They
can receive professors from the North in all respects
on a plane of equality, which, if tipped at all, is like-
ly to move in the South's favor, by the grace of that
refinement of culture for which Southerners of po-
sition have ever been famous. It is false to assume
that the material problems of reconstruction after the
war ever obscured from the minds of the most intelli-
gent Southerners those things of the mind and the .
spirit which make for the most enduring growth. On
the contrary, possessed of a great tradition in educa-
tion, they have clung to it firmly.
Yet it is true that the popular recrudescence of this
tradition has had to bide its time. Today an educa-
tional guide to the South cannot concern itself too ex-
clusively with the great institutions before mention-
ed. They merely stand among the leaders in a sec-
tion where even the masses of the people are newly
turning their faces to the light of education. There
has been a great increase in the numbers of students
enrolled in the high schools. University extension
work and summer-school courses are attracting wide-
spread attention. It is not a matter of numbers
alone. In the spirit of these students, there is also a
new eagerness, remarked not only in the lower grades
but more particularly by the presidents of Southern
State universities. Reports of signal developments
come, for instance, from such a university as" that of
North Carolina, which perpetuates a distinguished
tradition as the first State university ever establish-
ed in this country, and whose graduates have long
been attaining high rank in Northern professional
schools. Its president, Dr. "Edward K. Graham, ex-
presses the confidence that the new demand expressed
in the South will sweep away all material obstacles
now in the path of determined progress.
There would be then the evenly balanced values of
contact with institutions of high rank, to be gleaned
from an exchange with the South, and also for our
professors the great value of contact with students,
in some of the South's institutions, far more eager to
learn than are those Northern students who scarcely
know why they are in college. The authorities would
be found busy with the enduringly important first
principles of education in such institutions, and not
obsessed with administrative detail and petty refine-
ments of method. This would be an experience of
value to some of our Northern professors. And if
they themselves taught, and taught finely, in their
Southern chairs, they would have a large opportun-
ity for correcting some of the notions that have grown
up about New England, to the detriment of our re-
lations with many another section of the country.
We might hope to achieve a new rating also in the
eyes of those Southern professors who would come to
the North in exchange. Their gracious courtesy has
ever been open to fresh convictions. If exchange
professorships can be arranged with the South we
shall have much reason for mutual congratulation. —
A Beacon Light For All the World
In Spirit of Southern College
When a prominent educator of the South takes up
an analysis of the educational work of his institution
from a standpoint of what it is doing for its own
State; when he asks whether the courses of instruc-
tion are such as to enlighten the students on the po-
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
litical and economic requirements of their section of
the country, and when he points out manifest oppor-
tunities for the State to contribute more generously
in a work which in the end will do more toward the
development of its resources than any other one en-
terprise, the Manufacturers Record rejoices. It is in
line with the new era, and it signalizes the arrival of
reinforcements of the highest order.
Reference is made to the annual report of Presi-
dent Edward K. Graham, of the University of Xorth
Carolina. President Graham begins with the ad-
mi rable preface that his report is not made in the
spirit of official necessity nor as a special pleader for
his institution. lie asks of the trustees an interest
in the review of the work of the university, and
through them "the attention of all men to whom the
large and permanent welfare of the State is au active
concern/' Thenceforward President Graham re-
mains true to his text.
This clear enunciation of a great Southern edu-
cator should appeal to the South. It has already
been the subject of no little comment in official cir-
cles in Washington. If it be true that the preserva-
tion of the democratic spirit in the South has gone
hand in hand with a prejudice against endowment
of colleges, the feeling should be removed. Their
place in determining the South's development toward
its rightful destiny, in effecting its enlightenment
on .every phase of political matters in their relation to
economic and commercial conditions and the awaken-
ing of an intelligent interest therein have seldom
been so logically and convincingly set forth as in
President Graham's report. — Manufacturers Record.
Education in the South
President Graham, of the University of Xorth
' larolina, must have been studying the income tax re-
turns when he made up his recent annual report. His
assertion that there are now 100 men in Xorth Caro-
lina who could, without personal sacrifice, make im-
portant contributions to the support of the university
attracts attention in a new way to the material de-
velopment of the Southern States in the past decade.
It is the equivalent of the statement that there are
100 Tarheels liable to the payment of substantial
Bur-taxes to the Federal government upon incomes
which have passed beyond the limitations of lean
North Carolina and the South, whose development
she typifies, are to be congratulated. She lias fur-
nished new justification for commending the South
to young men as the land of opportunity. It is to be
regretted, however, that the State and her especially
well-to-do citizens have not utilized their wealth
more liberally in behalf of education. This short-
eoming is evidenced in President Graham's appeal
to his trustees that they direct the attention of men
of wealth in the State to the university's work and
its needs with the view of removing the restraints
placed upon its usefulness by the meagerness of the
It is true that equality of opportunity, which was
the star before the eyes of the founders of our govern-
ment, is realizable only through education. In the
South a pure and undefiled trust in a democracy has
been fostered along with a prejudice against endow-
ment of colleges. The opinion prevailed that the
educational institutions would be freer from the in-
fluences of corporate wealth and of undemocratic
ideas if they relied completely upon the State for
their support. The spectacle would be a saddening
one were we to find the Southern States foregoing
this conviction out of reluctance to put their hands in
their pockets. — Washington Post.
Source of Southern Educational Revival
The summer-school idea is older than is usally
thought. Nor was it the product of an up-to-date
Western college or university, reaching out for some-
thing new and startling. The first summer school
in this country was held at the University of Xorth
Carolina in 1877. The State appropriated $2,000
for it, and it ran for eight summers with an average
attendance of 300. Then it lapsed, because the ap-
propriation was divided in order to have sectional
summer schools and thus make it easier for students
in various parts of the State to get the advantages of
the innovation. But it had done its work. The pres-
ent-day summer school may be a grand combination
of study and sightseeing, with a drawing-power out
of proportion to its merely scholastic opportunities.
From her summer school, on the contrary, together
with other educational activities of the decade in
which it began, came Xorth Carolina's wonderful
educational revival of a few years ago and the stimu-
lus which stirred the whole South. Seriousness
must have been much more the note of those early
summer sessions than it is of most of those today.
Whether it would have been better to keep on with
the one school, instead of dividing into three or four,
with the hope of building up a summer school of
national fame, is a debatable question. The effect of
the division, however, was not fatal, if we may judge
from the increase in the attendance at Xorth Caro-
lina's summer school from 99 in 1910 to 1,050 in
1916.— N. V. Evening Post.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
The appearance of the third edition, revised, of
Gustav Freytag's "Die Journalisten (comedy in four
acts, D. C. Heath & Co., 1916), edited with intro-
duction, notes, and vocabulary by Professor Walter
Dallam Toy, invokes irresistible revelations of one's
own college clays. This popular text was edited by
Professor Toy first in 1889. A second, revised edi-
tion, appeared in 1901. In the present, third, edition
the critical apparatus is almost entirely rewritten.
The introduction gives a brief account of Freytag's
life, emphasizing his ardent patriotism and his sym-
pathy with the liberal movement in politics which
began in Germany about the middle of the 19th cen-
tury. This is followed by a brief survey of Freytag's
literary activity, with a characterization of his most
important works. A full list of Freytag's work, a com-
plete set of which are to be found in our University li-
brary, is appended to this section. Next, there is a
somewhat extended discussion of Freytag's dramatic
masterpiece, "Die Journalisten." After carefully
training the genesis of the comedy, the editor de-
scribes in an interesting way the conditions which
made the success of this production legitimate and
almost inevitable. Since 1S54, indeed, "Die Journal-
isten" has maintained itself uninterruptedly on the
stage of the best German theaters. Last, there is a
summary of the action of the play. It may be remark-
ed further, in regard to this model edition, that to the
text of one hundred and twenty-eight duo-deeimo
pages are added about twenty pages of explanatory
notes and a complete vocabulary. The official Ger-
An experiment of some pedagogical interest is at-
tempted in "A First Book in English" (Southern
Publishing Company, Dallas, Texas), by Alfred
Allan Kern, and Stuart Grayson Noble (U. N. C,
'07). The three subjects — grammar, composition,
and literature — are treated as merely three inter-re-
lated divisions of the same subject, English. The
book embraces a year's work in the high school in
these subjects. In the "Contents," Part I carries no
title, for some singular reason ; while Part II carries
the title "Composition." The book might be de-
scribed as snippets of grammar and composition, uni-
formly interspersed with sugar plums of literature.
In this way, the authors hope to enable the student to
avoid having to buy separate books on grammar, com-
position, and literature. There is something comical,
certainly, in reading the "contents" of part one: Rip
Van Winkle ; Letter- Writing ; Nouns ; The Legend
of Sleepy Hollow; Pronouns; The Spectre Bride-
groom; Adjectives; Christmas; Verbs; etc. Certain-
ly the authors are striking at an important matter;
to make the student live in three worlds simultan-
eously ; or rather, to make him or her feel that these
three worlds are all part of the same universe. Many
excellent injunctions and admonitions are found,
especially, in the chapters, entirely simple and prac-
tical, dealing with words, narration, description, and
exposition. In the "Use of Slang," for example, the
student is given quite a list of slang sentences and
asked to substitute a better expression for each slang
expression. One arresting illustration will appeal
to every heart: "How cute she looked as she waved
her handkerchief from the window !" A feature of
the work consists in the fact that this is one of the
first texts to adopt Universal Nomenclature, recom-
mended by the National Educational Association and
the Modern Language Association. Among the "Let-
ters from Leading Educators," issued by the publish-
ers, appears the following quotation from a letter by
President Graham : "The premises on which the
'First Book in English' is planned are absolutely cor-
rect, and the scheme of the book itself is sound."
A distinctive feature of the Journal of the Elisha
Mitchell Scientific Society, Vol. xxxii, No. .3 (De-
cember, 1916) is the leading article: "A Glance at
the Zoology of To-day," by Professor H. V. Wilson.
This is a valuable by-product of the exchange lecture-
ship, being the address delivered, as Southern Ex-

paper has also appeared in the Scientific Monthly
(September, 1916). It is a must delightful and
simple survey, accompanied by acute observations, of
the field of modern zoology, with frequent allusions
to Mendel and to Haecke. In his "List of Sylphidae
of North Carolina" (pp. 95-112, inclusive), Mr. C.
L. Metcalf has made use, for these records, of the col-
lections of the Division of Entomology of the State
Department of Agriculture, of Mr. ('. S. Brimley,
and of Mr. A. II. Manee from Southern Pines. Dr.
William deB. MacNider's paper, the outcome of re-
searches aided by a grant from the fund for scientific
research of the American Medical Association, which
is entitled, "On the Occurrence and Distribution of
Potassium in Normal and Nephrophatic Kidney
Cells," is reprinted from fne Proceedings of the So-
ciety for Experimental Biology and Medicine, 1915,
xiii, 10-12. The record is made of the microcbemical
demonstration of potassium in the kidney cells of
thirty-four dogs. It is another contribution to the
great problem being so ably studied in our labora-
tories by Dr. MacNider and the men under his di-
rection. The number concludes with an extended re-
view of Professor William Cain's path-breaking
work : "Earth Pressure, Retaining Walls and Bins"
(John Wiley i: Sons, Inc., New York, 1916). In
this book, the factor of cohesion in earth is for the
first time fully recognized and scientifically ti'eated.
However, the reviewer points out that Professor
Cain's book is unique in respect of being the first
work in any language to develop a general graphical
method for the treatment of the phenomenon of earth
pressure. As the result of Professor Cain's work,
pointing out the need for extensive experimentation
in the friction and cohesion of earths, the sub-com-
mittee on earth pressures of the American Society
of Civil Engineers have offered to carry on the ex-
perimentation so urgently needed at the Pittsburgh
laboratory of the U. S. Bureau of Standards.

that to Whittier nature meant "a medicinal power
whose sovereign virtue was the sense of peace and
uprightness that it imparted, and it meant further,
in his contemplative hours, a source of analogies with
the last mysteries of life." The article is also inter-
esting because it distinguishes between Whittier's
"solid presentation of the dangers of the nature cult"
and the surrender to these dangers by Whitman,
Jeffries, and even Wordsworth and Thoreau. Of
Whitman as a nature poet Professor Foerster has
written in the current number of the Publications

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
TRUSTEES HOLD JANUARY MEETING
On January 25th the Board of Trustees held its
regular January meeting in the office of Governor
T. W. Bickett, at Raleigh, and recommended an an-
nual maintenance appropriation of $105,000.00 to
meet the needs of the University in the next two
years. Governor Bickett presided at the meeting as
chairman of the board, which reviewed the report of
the president, reviewed the budget, and made recom-
The needs of the institution were outlined as fol-
lows: The completion of the plant that supplies
light, heat and power to the University; provision
for the deficit in maintenance for the past two years ;
the provision of such new dormitory accommodations
as will provide at least partial remedy for the con-
dition that less than half of the student body can
room on the campus ; the renovation of the old dorm-
itories; a laboratory for physics and allied sciences;
definite and adequate provision for the summer school
and the extension work ; a recitation building ; neces-
sary additions to the present teaching staff ; addition-
al departmental equipment and provision for in-
creased cost of operating material; increased salary
for members of the present staff; remodelling the
chapel to provide an adequate auditorium for chapel
and other University exercises; a geological labora-
These were presented as actual urgent needs; but
the budget proposed does not provide for immediate
relief. It provides for carrying forward the work of
the institution on the present basis of operation and
for reasonable growth and strength. A maintenance
appropriation of $165,000.00 was recommended and
strongly endorsed by the board. On the side of per-
manent improvements which for many years have
been urgently needed the board took the position that
the clearly wise policy would be the adoption now by
the State of a definite building program to cover a
period of five or ten years.
A gift of $20,000 from the late Dr. Joseph Hewitt
to establish a loan fund for needy students was an-
nounced and a committee appointed to draft rules
and regulations for its administration. It was also
ordered that tablets to the memory of Col. Thomas
Kenan, Richard H. Battle, Col. A. B. Andrews, Col.
Paul B. Means, Major W. A. Guthrie and Col. W.
H. S. Burgwyn be erected in Memorial Hall.
Resolutions were adopted in regard to the services
of the late Henry A. Gilliam, and a committee ap-
pointed to draw similar resolutions in memory of
Major W. A. Guthrie, for many years one of the most ~
active members of the Board of Trustees.
A request from certain students that steps be taken
to establish a voluntary military corps for training
of reserve officers was referred to the executive com-
mittee with power to act on recommendation of the
Messrs. Victor S. Bryant, William P. Bynum,
Julian S. Carr, Josephus Daniels, and R. D. W.
Connor were elected members of the executive com-
mittee for a term of three years.

The Guilford County Alumni Association held its annual
banquet February 10th at the State Normal College, Greens-
boro. There was a large attendance, 75 persons being present
and the occasion was a very successful and enjoyable one.
A. L. Brooks, of the local bar; presided as toastmaster. The
speakers were : C. C. Frazier, Judge W. P. Bynum, and
Prof. E. C. Branson, from the University. Judge Bynum
spoke on "The Needs of the University" and advocated a
bond issue of one million dollars by the State for the growth,
welfare and development of the University and the State
Normal College. Such a bond issue, Judge Bynum said, would
be not only a wise increase of investment but would prove
in his opinion, early exceedingly popular. Prof. Branson
gave the alumni an outline of accomplishments of the Uni-
versity in its State-wide service. He emphasized the pressing
need of more money, of greater State fostering. His address

The following letter has been received by the secretary
from a "nineteen-thirteener :"
Dear Wiggins :
I feel constrained to drop you, our honorable Secretary, a
few lines, as all good Thirteeners should do. There is so
much a Carolina man has to be thankful for this year, I think
we should be congratulating one another — and the Virginia
victory is by no means the smallest of our joys.
I hope business is prosperous with you, and that you weren't
divorced from any "war brides" in the late scramble. I have
been at Wisconsin for the past two years — Assistant in Ameri-
can History for the first two years and Fellow this time. I
hope to take my Ph. D. in June, and will then be out on the
cold world again. If you hear of any good jobs for a history
man, why, just pass along the tip. I hope we get in the
field early for the biggest reunion ever.
Best wishes to you and yours and all good Nineteen-

What Put the Pep in Uncle George?
"Well, George," languidly remarked a friend as he oozed into George's
office on a day when the heat was horrible, "what makes you look so disgustingly
chipper? From the way you are working anyone would think you had swallow-
ed an electric fan or held a first mortgage on the Fountain of Youth."
"You were right the last time, old man." replied George, "only I have no
mortgage on the fountain, I'm just one of the great army of consumers. The
big fountain, is at New Bern, North Carolina. I just have a drinking acquain-
tance with it, though I have established sort of a branch fountain here in the
office. It's a case of Pepsi-Cola that's put the pep in your Uncle George."
"Pepsi-Cola, why that's this pure fruit drink people are talking about.
Where did you get the idea that it will give the knockout to this heat? I tell
you the thermometer has broken the rcord for running high jump and I feel
like a boiled dinner. What can Pepsi-Cola do but cool you off for a minute ?"
"What does Pepsi-Cola do ? I'll show you. We will tap a bottle right
now. I keep it in the office and every time the heat tries to convict me I prove
an alibi with Pepsi-Cola. It's making the wife and kids happy and healthy
and it's helping me get the work done on schedule."
"George, I believe you are right, I feel more like a man already."
Pepsi-Cola is served at all soda fountains
and carbonated in bottles
