OPINION AND COMMENT
Knowing the unquestioned resources of North
Carolina, fully recognizing the imperative need of
providing for increased permanent
BUILDING THE improvements and annual support
LARGER STATE , v ., „, , , , ,. , j
for the States educational and
eleemosynary institutions, taking counsel of its faith
in the future rather than of its fears, the Legislature
of 1917 authorized an issue of $3,000,000 in bonds
to be expended over a period of five years for the
institutions mentioned, and provided, through its
regular appropriations, more liberally than any pre-
vious Legislature for their annual support.
Similarly, with scant attention to legislation of
the usual political sort, and through the enactment of
forward looking laws affecting the certification of
teachers, the extension of public school terms, the
building of school houses, the teaching of agriculture
in elementary schools, the support of high schools
and public health work, the care of dependent classes,
the removing of economic disabilities of farm and
home builders, the building of roads, and the care
of the State's criminals, it gave evidence that it un-
derstood North Carolina's fundamental needs and had
the courage to break the blighting habit of pleading
poverty and to set the fine precedent of meeting them.
Furthermore, in providing for a tax commission to
study, outline, and present to the people an equitable
system of taxation, it indicated the method by which
the constructive forces released by its enactments
could be adequately fostered in making North Caro-
lina the Great State in the Sisterhood of States that
she can and should be. In one and all of these ways,
it showed itself to be a discerning, far-visioned body
and wrote itself down as the most sanely constructive
Legislature in the annals of the State.

did program of upbuilding, received funds more com-

view genuine cause lor grati-
tude. But its chief joy is not merely that Alma
Mater's arm has been strengthened for the part of
the task assigned her, but rather that after these many
years North Carolina has gained her own consent to
cease to be the "poor relation" of the other states, and
to use wisely her ample resources in the working out
of a finer civilization within her borders.
To Senator Holderness, as Chairman of the Joint
Committee on Appropriations, who thought through
the situation which the expanding life of the State
had created, to his colleagues who thought with him
and supported him in his superb planning, and to
Governor Bickett, who used the influence of his great
office and the power of his own stirring eloquence in
visualizing the situation before the people, the Re-
view offers its heartiest congratulations ; and though
it is no prophet, nor the son of a prophet, it confi-
dently expects these gentlemen one and all, to witness
as the result of their sound business judgment and
statesmanship, a transformation in the life of North
Carolina more profound and far reaching than they
have even hoped.
To all sons of the University who as members of
the Legislature or otherwise devoted themselves to
the working out of these measures, the Review car-
ries Alma Mater's greeting and approval. In their
work she sees anew the fruitage of her labor — the
teaching of the one supreme duty of service to all.

permanent improvements. Ihese are the
amounts asked for by the University, and now that
they have been secured, it becomes its duty to make
every dollar count tellingly in carrying out the special
part which it has been assigned in this constructive
work. The University rejoices in the confidence re-
posed in it by the Legislature, and pledges itself to
the assumption of its full responsibility.
As already indicated, the Legislature, by an all
but unanimous vote in the Senate and with but 14
votes in opposition in the House, pass-

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
While the bill was in passage, opposition, led by
Dr. E. T. Vann, Educational Secretary of the Bap-
tist State Association; Dr. W. L. Foteat, President
of Wake Forest; Eev. Walter Johnson, Missionary
Secretary; Dr. Livingston Johnson, ex-Missionary
•Secretary; Eev. H. C. Moore, Editor of the Biblical
Recorder; and Dr. Charles E. Brewer, President of
Meredith College, developed against the measure, a
considerable part of which related to the University.
The nature of this opposition was such that the
Eeview wishes every alumnus to have first hand
knowledge of it. To this end it reprints elsewhere the
open letters, editorials, and printed statements in
which it was voiced and the two letters of President
Graham in answer thereto, and directs the attention
of every alumnus to them.
On March 30th, the high school boys in 350 vil-
lages and towns of the State will debate, under the
ASSIST IN THE
guidance of the Debating
Union, the question of gov-
ernment ownership of the
railroads. In the respect that this is a part of the
Extension work of the University, alumni are urged
to aid in every way possible to make the local event
the occasion of the year for the local high school. It
isn't for the Eeview to suggest ways and means.
Carolina men know too well how to make things go
for that. But this is merely a reminder of the date
and the opportunity.
The Eeview finds no occasion to comment on the
questions raised in the opposition. President Gra-
ham's letters leave no room for
ReT BETWEEN ^her comment on the essential
THE LINES? tacts. It does find occasion, how-
ever, to bring forward to this
section the concluding paragraph of the editorial in
the Biblical Recorder of March 7th to show how the
editor of that paper and those associated with him
in opposing tne bonds (we are convinced they are not
representative of the rank and file of their denomi-
nation in this opposition) feel about the matter.
Again, we reassert our approval of reasonable ap-
propriations to our State colleges, our hearty friend-
liness to them and to the high-minded men at their
head, and our great hesitancy in criticizing this bond
issue through fear of wounding valued friends, or of
hurting, in some slight degree, our great institutions.
But we could not remain silent and keep peace with
conscience. We cannot resist the feeling that, under
all the circumstances, the bond issue was a philan-
thropic, political, and educational blunder. We are
certain that its advocates erred in not taking the
public into their confidence before thrusting the bond
issue upon our statute books. We anticipate that
there will be no little feeling on the matter all over
the State and we should not be surprised if the next
Legislature, under pressure of public sentiment,
should rescind the order for the issuance of these
bonds after 191S. In this event, only a million dol-
lars having been issued and expended by that time,
the remaining two million dollars may be withheld.
We shall see what we shall see.
On second thought there is one comment the Ee-
view will make. It grows out of the question : "How
is it that the annual cost per pupil
STANDARD &t Wake . Forest C ° 1Iege iS $U1
HIGH ENOUGH? w bile it is $245 at Chapel Hill?"
President Graham's answer to
that question is given elsewhere and shows that in
reality the net cost per pupil at Carolina is only
$167, and that the figures would be considerably
nearer Wake Forest's $141 per pupil if the Uni-
versity did not maintain the Extension Bureau, pub-
lish the News Letter, Studies in Philology, The
Sprunt Monographs, The Mitchell Journal, The High
School Bulletin, bear a part of the expense of the
office of the High School Inspector, and meet numer-
ous other demands which by the very nature of
things are not made upon a private institution, but
which are of a state university.
The comment it would make is that the $141 per
student yardstick by which the leaders mentioned
would judge state-supported colleges with state func-
tions to perform, might more properly be applied to
private colleges with private functions, and even then
it is a standard far from the ideal. The fine work
which Wake Forest is doing, in spite of its lack of
money, could, we are sure and would be intensified
if by any possible means she could invest $175 or
$200 or $250 per year in every student who entered
her gates instead of $141. No college in North Caro-
lina, whether State or private, is spending money
carelessly, extravagantly. Nor does any one have
too much to spend. Our chief concern should be,
not to hold up the $141 yardstick, with its attendant
limitations, as the "reasonable support" and standard
for higher education, but to advance it whenever
and wherever possible. The Eeview does not have
it in its heart to hold back at Carolina's limit — $167
— any of the twenty-one other Southern state-sup-
ported universities and colleges of agriculture which
receive more per student than Carolina does, nor the
several colleges in North Carolina which receive
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
more. On the contrary it wishes added strength to
the arm of one and all.
One is frequently asked about student life and con-
duct at the University. The recent report of the
President of the University dis-
"IS THE YOUNG cusses & j n tne opinion of the
MAN SAFE?" -n „ f ., . , ,,
Keview, as well as m that ot the
college officials, student conduct was never on so
high and healthful a plane. A letter from a student
(a Sophomore) to his mother is better evidence than
any college official or outside observer could possibly
give. We take the liberty of quoting it here, because
it is about a matter of great and fundamental concern.
And every day, college life grows finer and finer,
and bigger and bigger. Like every Freshman, I
came to Carolina filled with a mixed feeling of appre-
hension and determination, expecting to be sudden-
ly untied from all good influences and example, and
thrust into a community of somewhat infidels. I
came braced for a struggle. * * * On the other
hand, Carolina was waiting with open arms to take
me in and give me all the very best and finest, — to
grow me. For that, I thank the Y. M. C. A. And
now, I am able to help receive other men who entrust
themselves to Carolina.
I was talking the other night with a Freshman
who came from a staunch Baptist minister's home,
having been urged to go anywhere but to that State
University. He was just as amused at himself as I
was over the curious ideas that he had had about .what
Carolina was going to be like. I guess there is not
a man on the campus but feels the influence indi-
r sctly or directly of the Y. M. C. A., even though it
be only through the general spirit of the campus. As
for that spirit, D ■ R told me last summer
that he had seen more manifestations of religious
faith on the Carolina campus than anywhere else he
had been. And, of course, that's not all of it. The
fellows are a wholesome sort, not studious or "inter-
ested" enough, to be sure, but nevertheless very demo-
cratic, thoughtful, prudent, mature, frank, modest,
usually vigorous, generous — of everything but money,
and very careful of that — appreciative, to a certain
extent, and, above all, honorable.
So T consider Carolina an exceptionally good place
in which to live, and have high hopes for her future.
Accumulating evidences speak eloquentlj of the
power (if alumni cooperation. The one defect, at
present, however, is that this

University is receiving from the
alumni is unorganized. A committee here, an indi-
vidual there, a class or local association does some
fine piece of work in class A style. The result is
exceedingly beneficial to the University. But the
big permanent assistance which the University should
receive, today, tomorrow, and continuously, is want-
ing. The University looks for it in vain and suffers
accordingly, simply because the alumni are unor-
ganized and have no effective way of applying their
The organization of 1911 gave an intimation of
what might be done; but it disintegrated because
it lacked sticking quality. It allowed the time on
Alumni Day which it should have devoted to con-
structive planning to be consumed in more or less
humorous speech-making. There were extenuating
circumstances, to be sure. But the result was fatal.
The Review herewith issues the case to the
Thoughtful to take the matte: up again in June.
Let the alumni host come to Commencement deter-
mined to put "commence" not only in Commence-
ment, but in the big Alumni Drive which must start
somewhere around June 5th.
A large number of the alumni have no doubt hesi-
tated to subscribe to the Alumni Loyalty Fund from
the feeling that it might not

not amount to enough to be
worth the small trouble of going into it. They have
felt that the idea of a fund in which all, or practi-
cally all, of the alumni had some part, however small
or large, was an ideal scheme.
But they have felt that it was nothing but an
ideal scheme; that the plan would not work.
There were others, however, who had faith in it
as a working proposition, and the events of the past
year completely and happily prove that they are
right. The Fund is now approaching the five thou-
sand dollar mark. There are five hundred alumni
that have a part in it to the amount of from one to a
hundred dollars each. The subscriptions in the
form of annual pledges, from January first of this
year to the present, that have been paid in, amount
to six hundred dollars. Within the week before this
copy of the Review goes to press, one subscription
of a hundred dollars, two of fifty, and three of
twenty-five have come in. All of this has come with-
out urging, and as a voluntary expression of the
desire of the alumni to create, as the years go by, a
splendid memorial of their love for the University,
their desire to assist her in the work of building up a
great University for a great State, and their gratitude
for what she gave to them.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
The Review would like to see this Fund grow to
ten thousand dollars hy the time of the class re-unions
in June. It would especially like to see the list of
subscribers increased to two thousand. Do not hold
back because your subscription is small. It is not
the thought of the Fund to have any one make undue
sacrifices for it. The amount is not the essential
point. Some alumni can subscribe a thousand dol-
lars a year as easily as others can subscribe a dollar.
The present student body of the University expect to
make a subscription, even while they are in college.
Some of the alumni prefer to give a flat sum, rather
than an annual subscription. This is all the same
thing. It simply means that they capitalize their
annual subscription. Neither method or the amount
is the important matter. The great idea is for every
alumnus to have a part in it, no matter who he is,
nor where he lives, nor what the amount is. Carried
out in this spirit, this Fund will rival the great
alumni funds of Yale and Cornell, will inspire an
unequaled loyalty and enthusiasm among our alumni
as well as produce a working and steadily growing
endowment through all the years to come.
At the Alumni Luncheon last Commencement an-
nouncement was made that General Julian S. Can*
had established a fellowship to yield
$300 to be awarded to that member of
the rising junior or senior class who
had earned his way through college during the first
two years, and whose scholarship and other qualities
gave promise of the highest sort. Recently Dean
Stacy gave out the names (the amount being divided)
of A. M. Coates and J. B. Linker as the recipients of
the honor for 1917-18.
The Review doesn't have the opportunity of fac-
ing as many members of the student body in the class
room as it should like. Its work is of a different sort.
Consequently it is denied the intimate, first hand as-
sociation with individual students which is one of
the rewards of college professors. But in various
ways it has from time to time crossed the trail of
these two winners in a most meritorious contest —
making one's way through college and at the self-
same time evincing those qualities of scholarship and
leadership that are distinctive.
It calls to mind Coates at the library mastering
the material for Inter-Society debates. His side
has won a time or two. It remembers that for a
year he was one of the efficient understudies in Mr.
Woollen's office — a place where there is always some-,
thing to do, and where Coates did his task well. And
it seems to remember that at Christmas, 1916, when
the University was taking holiday, a telegram with
YOU DO IT
Coates' signature, reached one of the faculty calling
for an enthusiastic speech at an alumni-home-coming-
student celebration in Coates' home town at which
Coates was the quiet, effective master of affairs. And
just the other night he won the honor of representing
Carolina in the state-wide oratorical peace contest.
The Review first saw Linker (some three years
ago) putting the "tar" on the Tar Heel — he was
in charge of the old Babcock press at the print shop
which Eric Abernethy installed and set running back
about ninety-five. The next time he was helping in
the launching of the Review's lively contemporary,
the News Letter. He did his best by it and it was
not his fault that it could not qualify as a winner in
a beauty contest. And then last fall he was called
home for sometime. The Review missed him. Every-
body did for that matter, who had things to print.
And then he reappeared in the class room and at his
case again after an interval during which he had
sounded the depths of one of the profoundest human
experiences — the loss of a father.
The Review has frequently contemplated the na-
ture of General Carr's philanthropic acts and has
always found pleasure in them. In some way it can-
not escape the conviction that in this instance he
bested his best. It also occurs to the Review that
some one else might do exceedingly well to establish
other foundations of this or a similar nature. Sup-
pose vou do it !

LETTERS AND EDITORIALS RELATING TO THE BOND ISSUE
On Tuesday, February 27th, Senator Holderness,
chairman of the Appropriations Committee of the
Senate, introduced a bill providing for $3,000,000
in bonds to be expended during the next five years for
permanent improvements by various State institu-
tions. Of this amount $500,000 was to go to the
University, $500,000 to the State Normal, $300,000
to the North Carolina State College of Agriculture
and Engineering, $200,000 to the Eastern Carolina
Training School, $50,000 to the Appalachian
Training School, $40,000 to the Cullowee Normal,
$60,000" for the School for the Deaf and Dumb,
$50,000 for the Stonewall Jackson Training School,
$500,000 as a loan fund to the State Board of Edu-
cation for school houses, $25,000 for the Agricultural
and Technical School for Negroes, $10,000 for the
State Normal for Negroes, $200,000 each for the
State Hospitals at Raleigh and Morganton, and
$125,000 for the Goldsboro Hospital, $50,000 for a
storage warehouse at Raleigh, $40,000 for fire protec-
tion apparatus, and $150,000 for the Tuberculosis
On Wednesday Governor Bickett supported the
measure in a special forceful message to the Legisla-
ture. On Thursday it passed its final reading in the
Senate and on Friday a special hearing was given
by the Joint Committees of the Senate and House
at which President W. L. Poteat, Secretary R. T.
Vann, Dr. Livingston Johnston, Secretary Walter
Johnson, President Charles E. Brewer, and Editor
II. C. Moore were present to be heard in opposition
to the measure. Remarks were made by Preside it
Poteat, Dr. Johnson, and Dr. Vann. On the mon;
ing of the same day an article bearing the following
title "Enters Objections. A Few Questions Apropos
of the Proposed Bond Issue Asked by Dr. R. T
Vann," appeared in the News and Observer. Satur-
day morning, March 3rd, in the same paper appeared
a further letter by Dr. Vann and a letter by President
Graham. On Monday, March 5th. the bill passed in
the House. In the Biblical Recorder of March 7th an
editorial entitled "Three Millions in Bonds." and
"An Open Letter to Governor Bickett," by President
Poteat, appeared relative to the subject. Dr. Living-
stun Johnston presented his views in the News and
Observer and the Greensboro Daily Nevs of March
4th and 11th respectively.
The Review reprints below the letters of Dr.
Vann and President Graham; an extract from the
editorial of March 7th ; President Graham's answer
to the extract, with comment by the editor, in the
l-!il)h',-<il Recorder of March 14th. These letters
and extracts cover the range of the opposition to the
bond issue and President Graham's answer to the es-
sential points in it relating to the University. —
To the Editor:
Not having had the opportunity of seeing the bill
authorizing these bonds, I cannot discuss the merits
of that measure in particular. From my personal
knowledge, however, of some of the gentlemen be-
hind the bill I do not in the least doubt that every one
of them is doing what he considers best for the State.
But may not an interested taxpayer, in a small
way, ask a few questions suggested by this rather
novel policy ?
( 1 ) Why should the matter have been postponed
until the last week of the Legislature's session before
it was seriously broached? The average taxpayer will
certainlv ask why so important a measure — one of
the most important of the whole session — should
have been sprung and rushed through at the very last
without giving the people time to express themselves.
There are doubtless good reasons in the minds of the
proponents of the measure for this unusual proce-
dure. Would they mind enlightening the ignorant on
(2) I learn that of the $3,000,000 proposed,
about $1,500,000 is to go to the higher institutions
and only $500,000 to the common schools. The State
is already paying every year for its higher education-
al institutions something over $640,000, and nearly
$95,000 more must be added to this sum from
certain other funds, not including fees received
from students. But it is paying out only a little
over $800,000 a year for the public schools, though
these receive from the counties about a million dol-
lars more. So there is expended annually on the
3,000 students in these higher institutions $735,-
000, while the 626,000 little children in the com-
mon schools receive only about $1,800,000 a year,
about two and a half times as much as is spent
on the 3,000. Is this just to the mass of the little
ones? Is it wise as an educational policy? Ts it
not an attempt to build a splendid superstructure
on a foundation of cornstalks? Every fairly well
informed school man in this State knows that the
weak spot in our school system is not in the colleges
but in the common schools.
(3) Are these higher institutions economically
administered? I am not prepared to say thai they
are not, and \ certainly would not intimate thai there
is any graft in their management. But a calculation
made two years ago by one of our most intelligent
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
men shows that the annual cost per student in the
State's higher institutions is a little more than double
that per student in the denominational institutions.
Moreover, while the University receives $195,000 a
year in donations, and ought to receive at least $50,-
000 in fees from its students, making $245,000, one
of our leading denominational colleges with about
half the number of students receives only $86,000
annually from all sources ; and while the Normal
receives $100,000 a year besides $15,000 extra for
the last two years, a denominational woman's college
in the State with about five-sevenths of the number
of pupils the Normal has, receives less than $70,000
a year from all sources. If it be said that the grade
of work done at the State schools is superior to that
of the other two referred to, it may be answered that
the students from the man's college enter the higher
universities of the North on exactly the same terms
as those from the University, that its law and medi-
cal departments rank with about everybody as at least
the equal of those at the University, and that its
medical department was pronounced by the Carnegie
Foundation one of the only two worthy medical col-
lege departments in the South, the other being in
Louisiana. As for the women's colleges, experts here
and in the North have both recently placed the de-
nominational institution a year above the Normal in
grade, and the graduates of the denominational col-
lege are the only graduates in the State so far that
have been permitted to take the A. M. degree from
Harvard or Radcliffe in only two years. So, I raise
the question, why should so much more be spent per
student at the State institutions than in the denomina-
tional colleges t
(4) Do the State's higher institutions antagonize
the denominational schools ? This writer has the
honor of counting the presidents of the four State
colleges among his friends and does not believe that
a single one of the gentlemen would knowingly in-
jure any private school. And yet, the talk is common
and persistent all over the State that there is an un-
necessary and unjustifiable antagonism against the
denominational schools on the part at least of the
agents or friends of those run by the State. First,
in the matter of issuing scholarships. If necessary,
this writer could cite scores and hundreds of instances
where young men and women who were prepared to
enter a denominational college were enticed away at
the last hour by the offer of a four year scholarship
at a State institution, though the students preferred
the denominational schools and had prepared to enter
them. Why should such a policy be pursued? Sec-
ond, it is commonly said all over the State that these
scholarships are frequently given to students whose
parents are amply able to educate them. Third,
numbers of school superintendents educated at the
Stftte institutions use their utmost endeavors to turn
every student away from the denominational colleges
to those of the State. And fourth, a number of our
high school men say they are actually afraid to have
a certain one of the University officials visit their in-
stitutions at all because they fear he would seek to
turn their pupils to State institutions. This is the
feeling ; I do not know whether there are any grounds
(5) Would the State colleges be willing to furnish
at all the names of the recipients of scholarships?
Nobody would insist on the publication of them. But
is there any good reason why any citizen should not
know the beneficiaries of the taxes that this citizen
(6) What is the attitude of the State's education-
al authorities in general to its Christian colleges?
Ought not the State to recognize and encourage the
cooperation of private high schools and colleges in
the great work of training its people ? A former
president of the University told an honored friend of
the writer that there was "no use for Wake Forest
College;" and a distinguished lawyer openly made a
similar statement on the streets of Raleigh a few
years ago. And the same opinion has been expressed
by less responsible persons time and again. If this
is the sentiment of the controlling educational au-
thorities and the leading friends of the State's higher
educational institutions, we ought to know it ; if it is
not, it seems to me that those who have a riaht to
speak with authority ought to disavow it.
The denominational colleges today have enrolled
probably two-thirds of the total number of college
students in the State. These institutions are contrib-
uting this valuable service without money and with-
out cost to the State. Is it just to the good people
who after paying their rightful part of the taxes for
the support of the State institutions, but who never-
theless believe in distinctly religious education, to
have their institutions slaughtered by the State, and
is it wise for a great State to deprive itself of so valu-
able a contribution to its educational work by either
ruthlessly or neglectfully destroying the privately
supported school ? R. T. Vann.

It is due President Graham to publish the follow-

the part of sonic who do not know Dr. Graham. I
should like to add further that I do not believe the

that it comes as a surprise to those who remember the

OPEN LETTER TO DR. R. T. VANN
My Dear Dr. Vann:
I have just read your article in today's .\ ews and
Observer. You ask for a statement in regard to
two points that concern me as an official administer-
ing the affairs of an institution of all the people, and
I gladly make answer with clearness and with all the
emphasis that you will Be good enough to read in
the following simple words:
( 1 ) "Do State institutions antagonize the denom-
For myself I make answer that no act, attitude or
feeling of mine has been other than genuine and
deeply sympathetic toward the denominational schools
and colleges. My whole creed and practice is that
we all are at work on the same problem, and that no
success in the field of education in North Carolina
genuinely won can work anything other than good
for every other worker in that field. I can say to
you without reservation that every forward step made
by any institution, from the elementary school to the
college — private, denominational or public — gives
me as deep pleasure as if it were made by the one
with which I chance to be associated.
Having said this, it is not necessary for me to add
that I have not "inticed" students from any college.
On the contrary, in hundreds of cases when told by
applicants that the reason I should give them scholar-
ships was that they had one elsewhere, I have replied
that that was a good reason why I should not. To en-
tice any student away from another college would vio-
late every principle that animates my life and my
interpretation of the relation of this institution to
the State, and every policy and practice of its eon-

nish at call the names of the recipients of scholar-
.Most assuredly. Not onlv so, but 1 desire noth-
ing so much as to have every citizen of North Caro-
lina interested in the work of the University and in
its administration and service and intelligently cri-
tical of every detail of its administration. Every-
thing about its business belongs to all of the citizens
of the State whose institution it is. Every detail
of its business is published in annual statements wide-
ly distributed to the people of the State. We are not
only willing to "furnish on call" the names of holders
of these scholarships, but we do annually furnish
them to the Board of Internal Improvements, and
they are audited by the State's official auditor, and
made publicly available. No possible objection can
exist to the publication of names of holders of free
tuition here from our point of view, for none has free
tuition except such as hold endowed scholarships, and
those created by the law of North Carolina.
I trust you will call on me for any information
of anv sort concerning the University of North Caro-
lina that interests you. Knowledge of its affairs is
as open to you as to me, and may I not hope that with
the fuller knowledge there will come to us all, work-
ing together in the splendid common task that invites
and challenges us, a growing depth of sympathy and
a common inspiration that will make the unified
educational forces of the State factors in the single
supreme issue that confronts us ?
With esteem and best wishes.
Chapel Hill, N. C.
Edward K. Graham.
THREE MILLION DOLLARS IN BONDS
There is another thing a great many people would
like to know, especially in view of the alleged need
of a big bond issue. How is it that the cost in the
State's higher educational institutions is so much
greater than it is in the non-State colleges of standard
grade ? To illustrate : How is it that the annual cost
per pupil at Wake Forest College is $141 while it is
$245 at Chapel Hill? And why does the Greens-
boro Normal require per pupil $2 to every $1 at
Meredith College per pupil, the latter being recog-
nized as doing a higher grade of work than (he form-
er? We do not reflect upon the management of any
of our State institutions — not in the least; doubtless
they arc doing their best. But the tax payer, before
endorsing bonds, would like to know how it is that
equal or better work is being done at less expense by
non-State colleges. Let us all think together and
work together, without bitterness, at our common
task. — Biblical Recorder, March 7.
PRESIDENT GRAHAM'S LETTER
President Edward K. Graham, of our Slate Uni-
versity at Chapel Hill, wrote us on March 8 the fob
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
lowing courteous and illuminating letter which we
gladly print in full on our editorial page :
My Deae Doctor Moore :
In an editorial in this week's Biblical Recorder —
and in an article from Doctor Poteat in the same
issue — the statement is made that the annual cost per
pupil at Wake Forest College is one hundred and
forty-one dollars, whereas it is two hundred and
forty-five dollars at the University of North Caro-
I have no criticism to make of you, or President
Poteat, for saying that the cost per pupil here is two
hundred and forty-five dollars, because you take this
figure from the table given in my annual report.
There is a point about the figure, however, to which I
wish to call your attention, and which you will readi-
ly recognize as entirely doing away with the conclu-
sion drawn in making the comparison with Wake
Forest. The figure of University cost was taken from
the government report, and the government report, in
■ figuring income, included building operations, gross
cost of maintaining the dining hall and power plant,
as well as summer school operations and extension
The Wake Forest figure is, of course, computed on
the basis of net working income, and does not include
a number of activities that are carried on here. The
estimate made for Wake Forest is made on the proper
basis for estimating actual cost per student. Figur-
ing on that same basis, and using the same govern-
ment figures, but deducting building operations and
counting only the net cost of such public service oper-
ations as the power plant, dining hall, etc., our net
working income per student is one hundred and sixty-
seven dollars per year, and not two hundred and
forty-five dollars. This estimate of a hundred and
sixty-seven dollars includes extension activities, and
a number of other important activities that properly
fall upon us and do not fall upon Wake Forest.
The reason we used the government table just as
it stood was because it put us in comparison with
other State Universities, and the figures, we assume,
are such as form a proper basis for comparison. You
will notice, if you examine the table, how well we
show up from the point of view of economy with
other well-managed institutions. So far as I know,
the testimony of this table is borne out by the testi-
mony of every expert and board that has ever criti-
cally ex.nmined the affairs of these institutions.
I am confident that you and Doctor Poteat will
welcome the explanation of why the figures, as quoted
in the Recorder, are so widely apart, because I am
confident that you, as a citizen of the State, will be
as glad as I am to know that, on a basis of comparison
with Wake Forest, this institution is economically
In regard to the point that the instiutticn should let
the State know what is to be done with the money
they are to receive, I entirely agree. In presenting
the matter for the University, I gave the whole bud-
get ; an estimate of its needs down to the last penny.
These estimates were not in round figures, nor made
in any haphazard way. In the item for building re-
pairs, for instance, the estimate was made on builders'
estimates, and showed each item of expenditure. A
large number of copies of these estimates in detail
were made and distributed among the members of the
.Appropriations Committee three or four weeks ago
when I was called before them. An outline of these
requests in detail, was given to the newspapers, and
I have proceeded in the past, and shall proceed in
the future, on the assumption that any criticism of the
management of our affairs, financial or otherwise, is
made in a spirt of sympathetic co-operation and I
shall welcome such criticism, for I fully realize that
no one can possibly benefit from it so much as we.
Every dollar that we can save through a wiser and
more economical management is just that much gain.
With esteem and best wishes,
Edward K. Graham,
We consider Dr. Graham a high-minded, clean-
souled gentleman who is incapable of sinister action
or even of ulterior motive, both in private life and in
the discharge of public duty. We, therefore, accept
without question his explanation of the difference
which we noted in the comparative cost of educating
a student at Chapel Hill and at Wake Forest And
we cheerfully recognize that Dr. Graham in his ad-
mirable report gave in detail, as he says, the needs of
the larger University which he hopes ere long to see.
For President Graham we have had, and we have
no word of criticism.
But we opposed the bond issue on the grounds
which we gave and which, we presume, need not be
Though the proponents of the bond issue accom-
plished their immediate object, it was a grievous mis-
take for them to rush the measure through the re-
cent Legislature during its last week without taking
into their confidence the people who must pay the
bills. Failure to let the public consider the merits
of the proposition was, to say the least, a species of
ragged politics and sinister statesmanship. — Biblical

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ATHLETIC INTEREST IS HIGH
Carolina Takes a New Stride in the Realm of Athletics
Since the coming of Coach Campbell to the Uni-
versity last fall, Carolina has taken a new stride in
the realm of athletics. This is partly seen in the
fact that Virginia has been defeated in both football
The football season last fall, though not as suc-
cessful as some of the preceding years, is regarded
by the average North Carolinian as the most success-
ful since 1905 — the last time a North Carolina foot-
ball team beat Virginia. And the credit of this suc-
cessful season is given in a large measure to Coach
Campbell and his able corps of assistants. They
began the season with a squad of inexperienced men,
but on Thanksgiving Day sent one of the strongest
football teams on the field that every represented
Getting Ready for Thanksgiving Day
But the battle cry of "On to Richmond," which
has been sung throughout the State by both alumni
and students for many years will not be heard next
year. It will be "On to Chapel Hill," where the
1917 classic will be staged. The bringing of this
famous game to Chapel Hill will give thousands of
North Carolinians the opportunity of witnessing the
South's biggest game — one which is looked forward
to by the many patriotic alumni all over this and
other states. The preparation for this game has al-
ready be«'un. At the first call for volunteers for
spring training, some 50 or 60 candidates responded,
and Coach Campbell, assisted by some of last years'
veterans, has been putting the squad through some
strenuous training since the first of March. Light
scrimmages are held daily and will be continued until
warm weather interferes.
Basketball Season Was Successful
The basketball season which closed March 3, with
a 55 to 28 victory over Guilford, was one of the most
successful in the history of basketball at the Univer-
sity. Coach Peacock, like Coach Campbell, began the
season with a squad of inexperienced men — there
U-int: only one old man on the team — but by the mid-
dle of the season had developed the material into
a reliable team. Five out of the eight games were
won — such strong teams as V. P. I., V. M. I. and
Virginia being defeated. The team lost only one
game on the home floor, being defeated by the strong
Davidson quint in the second game of the season.
The credit for this successful season must be given
to Coach Peacock, whose untiring efforts developed
what appeared to be a losing team into a winning
team, and all the more credit is due because it was
the lightest college or university team in the South.
Baseball Season Starts
Along with the successes in football and basket-
ball, there is expected to be a very successful baseball
season. Coach Hearn has been hard at work on the
squad for the past few weeks drilling them into shape
for the coming strenuous season. The team will be
weakened to some extent because of a lack of veterans
of last year's team. Nevertheless there is promise
of a reliable team. Powell, who showed up so well
last year as a freshman, will probably be the main-
stay of the pitching staff. Barnes, who last year, be-
cause of his heavy hitting, became known as "Home
Run Rudy," is again in the outfield and seems to
have started off in midseason form. Pippin, who
last year was forced to quit the game on account
of an injury, has fully recovered and is making a
strong bid for an outer garden position. The sched-
ule for the coming season is one of the hardest
ever arranged for a Carolina team, there being 23
games including one each with Colgate and Yale,
three with Virginia, and four with Georgia.
Track Men Are at Work
In track athletics, there is promise of one of the
best teams that Carolina ever sent into a meet, and it
is expected to do its part against Virginia, a meet
with whom is pending for April 21. If this meet is
not held, however, there will be a chance to compare
the relative strength of these two teams when the
South Atlantic Meet is held at Charlottesville, Va.,
on May 12. There are at present over 50 candidates
out for the different positions. The track, like the
baseball team, will be handicapped to some extent
because of the loss of such stars as Long, Johnson,
Homewood and Patterson, members of last year's
Class Athletics Takes On New Life
Along with the increased interest and success of
the varsity teams, there is a renewed interest in the
class athletics. This branch of athletic activities,
which has heretofore been looked upon as rather un-
important, has been put on a new basis, and a cham-
pionship cup is to be given to the class which shows
best ability in all branches of athletics. Besides put-
ting class activities on a new scale, Coach Campbell
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
plans to inaugurate the tug-of-war as another branch
of class athletics.
In general, it may be said that this year has mark-
ed the beginning of a new era in athletics at the
University. Coach Campbell has put that spirit
into athletics that was so noticeable in the game last
Thanksgiving — that never quitting spirit which is
behind all hard won victories. And this is the spirit
that thousands of North Carolinians believe has
come to stay.
COLLEGE WEEK-END IS NOW FULLY ARRANGED
Greensboro's "college" week-end is fully program-
med. The events which have been announced by fhe
committee of young men of the chamber of com-
merce which has interested itself in the promotion
of the plan, center about the great occasion of the
meeting at baseball here of the Universities of North
Carolina and Virginia. That game is to be on the
afternoon of April 14, and the week-end festivities
will conclude that night w T ith the Virginia-Carolina
dance, an event which is projected for greater signi-
ficance than before.
The juniors and seniors of the State Normal Col-
lege and the Greensboro College for Women will be
the special guests of a reception Friday afternoon,
April 13, in the Country Club. That afternoon, too,
a game of college basketball will be played in tbe Y.
M. C. A. That night, the Glee Club and orchestra
of the North Carolina University will join the
Greensboro and Normal chorus in giving a musical
entertainment in the Municipal theatre. Saturday
morning, a hop will be given in the M. and M. Club
ball room in honor of visitors. Saturday afternoon
the big game will be played and Saturday night, the
dance will occur.

FOR WHAT MILITARY SERVICE ARE YOU BEST PREPARED?
CAROLINA'S INTERCOLLEGIATE INTELLIGENCE BUREAU
WISHES IMMEDIATE INFORMATION
The outstanding lesson of the Great War is the fact that battles are no longer fought by "mere armies, but by
nations in arms." Organization of the business, the industry and the science of the whole people is essential for suc-
cessful defense or offense. As a part of the great movement of preparation the colleges of the United States have
formed the Intercollegiate Intelligence Bureau. This organization is sanctioned by, but in no way controlled by the
Federal Government. Each institution has its local committee which purposes to gather from its students and alumni
data concerning those portions of their education and experience as might be fuseful in case of war. These facts will
be classified according to the various kinds of training, and will be kept on file by the committee at each institution.
When war forces the national government to call into its service its civilian engineers, doctors, chemists, clerks, tele-
graph operators, linguists and a multitude of other men of special training, these records will establish instant touch
between the "man and the job."
Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Pennsylvania, and many others are already pressing forward in this work.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
A STATEMENT OF ATTITUDE
(By President Graham at the inauguration of President Wallace Riddick,
February 22d. )
Me. President :
I come to-day, commissioned to extend to you, on
behalf of the State's colleges, our heartfelt greetings
and congratulations. And if I speak without refer-
ence to any particular sort of college, it is because my
thought of welcome today brooks no division.
It is an easy commission — one to which my hand
and heart eagerly responds, and I hasten to say
why. It is because, under the most fortunate cir-
cumstances, you are summoned to assist in the work-
ing out of a task that calls for the best in the great-
est of men. I believe that to be the happiest good
fortune that may befall a worker on this planet: to
assist in the solution of a supreme problem, when the
problem is clear and his fellow- workers sympathetic,
eager and enthusiastic. It is the call and chart of the
great career, and we salute you, Mr. President, and
welcome you with all the full strength of a brother's
College leaders are more fortunate and happy in
these days of personal friendliness and peace than
in the militant and robust period of our fathers. In
those heroic days, the representatives of sweetness
and light, whatever other high crimes and misde-
meanors they might have been guilty of, could never
have be°n accused of thinking of each other more
highly than they ought to think.
I remember, even in my own experience, encoun-
tering a relic of the ancient antagonism still left in
student consciousness. Some years ago, a certain
college president was coming to speak to our Y. M.
C. A. The head of the Association told me that he
did not know with whom to lodge him. "Why not
with me," I said, "I shall be delighted." "Well,"
replied the boy, "I thought of that; but he is going
to spend the night, and, being heads of different edu-
cational institutions, I did not know how you'd get
That time, fortunately for the happiness and pro-
ductive efficiency of all of us, has passed. I have
given the whole matter very particular consideration,
and I think I am prepared to say that there is not a
college president in the State, no matter how zealous
in good works, who would wish to turn the other
presidents over to the benevolent culture of the State
You come in a period of larger, clearer view than
was permitted to those fine fighters whose educational
spears knew no brother. That you find your work in
an era of personal friendliness and esteem is a matter
for genuine congratulation; but even more signifi-
cant and inspiring is the fact that you come at a
period so tremendous in educational importance that
it demands and will receive from our educational
leaders something more than personal friendliness,
absence of suspicion and distrust, exclusive devotion
to our own special tasks. The common task of all
of us is bigger than any of us, and it calls for the
united, aggressive, whole-souled and complete co-
operation of us- all. There is no division in the chal-
lenge that comes to the educational forces in this
State, and no part of that challenge is a summons to
defend any sect or section of it in a partial or parti-
"But all in their unlikeness blend,
Confederate to one golden end."
Every college and every educational force, what-
ever its source of inspiration, and whatever its aim
and method, has the right to, and needs the support
and encouraging strength of, every other. The suc-
cess of one means the success of all in their common
effort that the State may take a foremost place in the
production of all those values that men hold precious
— most of all the higher values in human life.
I spoke of the supreme moment in which you come
to your work here. I do not refer to the war, nor
mean that the war gives it especial significance. Al-
though I do not doubt, should occasion arise and the
call come to your young men, that they would do as
their fathers did before them : lay the world away,
. . . . and pour out the red
Sweet wine of youth ; give up the years to be,
Of work and joy, and that unhoped serene
That men call age."
I do not doubt it. I know that they would. But
what concerns me now is not the obligation that our
youth have to us and to the State in the face of this
terrifying spectacle. What transfixes my attention
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
is the obligation that we and the State have to them
in their full and wholesome development, and,
through them, to the future. The red sky of the
ruin of war marks clear before our eyes once more
the magnitude of the world-old task of civilization —
its present passing physical task, and its permanent
spiritual task — says startling things to us in this
section of the globe that we call "North Carolina" —
chiefly in that it throws into sharply cut relief the
sky-line of our country's standards and the world's
and our own.
It is not for me to mark where we stand, nor to ex-
plain it and justify it. Let us accept the fact that
our competition is not now in our own local past,
but in the open forum and markets of the nation;
that the ultimate issue of this or any war is not in
the trenches, but in the schoolrooms of the world ;
that the ultimate aim and standard of the civilization
of which we are a part, and that we represent here,
is, and is more and more to be, the complete and
abundantly productive life which Jesus Christ fore-
shadowed, and that Christianity and democracy were
evolved in simple and very truth to put into practice;
that full and free equality of opportunity to develop
toward it is the right of every individual within the
State ; that the State exists for that and that alone
and, no matter what the cost, that a state that does not
assure it commits the unpardonable sin against its
youth and its own ideals; that any statesmanship not
founded on it is empty and barren, for there can be
no sovereign democratic state without the fullest
equality of opportunity through education. North
Carolina, in spite of every obstacle can have, and will
have, precisely that amount and quality and kind of
education that she really wants to have, and the
place she takes in the sisterhood of states and nations
is implicit in that choice.
To put through education this mother State of ours
where, by every natural right of resource and genius,
she should be — foremost in the things for which she
exists ; to hold no sacrifice too dear to accomplish that,
is the supreme common task of all her colleges, the
central task of business, statesmanship and patriot-
ism, to which we welcome you today.
Through you may this institution "stand on the top
of the high places, by the way places of the path,
may she cry out at the entry of the city, at the coming
in at the doors," her message to the sons of men.
We have the certain faith that there will be no
peace here without victory, Mr, President, And we
greet yon and felicitate you on a task that will call
forth your courage, your patience, and your great
"Teuton or Celt or whatever we be
We are each all Dane, in our welcome to thee."
YOUR COMMITTEE WANTS YOUR EAR, 1912
Attention, Fellow Classmates of Nineteen Twelve!
This is the year for our five-year reunion. We want
to make it the best reunion ever held on the "Hill."
Will you help ?
The class of 1911 achieved wonderful success last
year for two reasons. The members of the class, as
one man, backed the movement. The men in charge
believed that commencement is for the alumni and
not solely for the graduating class. The students
have the campus to themselves the whole year. Com-
mencement, however, is the open season for the old
birds that have flown the coop, and the game should
be plentiful this year. Let us all go home and roost
one more time.
The committee on arrangements proposes to make
this gala event the greatest in the history of the class,
and, of its kind, in the history of the University.
The committee, however, is powerless to do more
than to arrange for our pleasure. It is up to us
to go there and put the deal through. Aside from
the fact that it is an expression of our love for and
loyalty to our Alma Mater, the reunion has as its
object the pleasure of the members of the class and
their friends — everybody on the Hill. All who enter-
ed with or later became members of the class are ex-
pected to be there.
Begin right now to make your arrangements to be
there with your family — if you have one. If you
have not, be there anyway. Fred Drane wants to
drive his doa; team from Alaska, where he is big boss
of a mission as large as North Carolina. Lingo
Wang, lately appointed Commissioner of Education
for the entire Republic of China, is coming over to
consult Billy Noble on a few points that bother him.
And we almost forgot to say that Dr. W. E. Wakely
has promised to let Bill Wakely, Junior, "run down"
from Orange, N. Y., for a tryout with the summer
training squad of track and football material.
You simply cannot afford to miss the bis; gathering.
We are counting on every member of the class. We
count you. Be there. — Publicity Committee.
James L. On-, of the class of 1912, is instructor in
physical education in the University of Cincinnati.

that her loyal son and alumnus, Wm. Marshall Richardson, of
the class of 1857, is living at the age of 86 in Ocala, Fla. Dr.
W. K. Lane, 1901, is here also. Long live the Old North

Editor, The Review,
My heart has been with Chapel Hill ever since I took my
