THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
WORK TO DO
Alumni Day, June 5, is only forty-five days in the
future. Take your blue pencil now and underscore
the date. Include June 3 and 4 also,
so that nothing can interfere with
your being here.
Why? Look up the special letters from individ-
uals and committees to the classes which hold re-
unions, and the special invitation from Alma Mater
and your question will be fully answered. There is
happiness in store for you and joy for your foster
mother if you will only be here.
But there is work to do — the best that upbuilds —
that brings about the greater University. Planks in
the building program follow:
1. First of all, putting the Gen-
eral Alumni Association on a new
working basis, thinking through the problems which
confront the University, and naming committees to
carry through successfully the work planned. The
day for alumni reminiscence, oratory, a little fun-
making, and nothing more, is past The resources of
the great, alert, alumni body must be mobilized for a
greater University and State.
2. Local Associations and classes must be more
thoroughly organized through the Secretary and ap-
3. The alumni catalogue must be put through
the press in such a way as to furnish the maximum
information about the alumni.
4. A definite, thorough-going campaign must be
instituted for returning more alumni at Commence-
ment and at all University occasions which call for
the presence of alumni. The time has come when
Carolina should, in common with other universities,
have a mid-term Alumni Day on which alumni can
see the University at work.
5. The Loyalty Fund has started splendidly, but
permanent success cannot be secured upon the basis
of individual effort. The alumni as a body must get
behind the movement and work as a unit lor its
6. A bureau of appointments could tremendously
assist older alumni as well as recent graduates in find-
7. If the Virginia game is to be played on the
local gridiron, alumni co-operation is absolutely es-
sential to real success. The committee should start
to work June 6.
8. For five years, less than five men have assumed
the full responsibility of financing and editing the
Review. The load should be distributed, now that
the day of experiment is over.
9. The benefits of the University should be
brought to an increasingly large number of regular,
summer, and correspondence students and to the
people of the State at large through the Bureau of
Extension. Alumni can furnish the medium through
which this can be made possible.
10. The people of North Carolina should know
about the work and the needs of their University.
Individual alumni have recently shown what impor-
tant results may be achieved in this particular even
when the effort expended is unorganized. Organized
effort will insure still greater success.
You will soon be alumni. It is an open secret —
that — there are just two kinds of alumni — live ones
and "dead" ones. At least that is
what the Minnesota Alumni Weekly
says and it tallies with this paper's
experience down to the minutest iota subscript. The
Virginia Alumni News rather ingeniously finds five
classes and prints a little poem about them (which
read elsewhere) but the Badger State scribe really

that it meets and does something, keeps the class

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
What's all this ado about? Why it's for your
good, not merely for Alma Mater's. At least this
is the way the Minnesotan puts the case:
A college course brings to the average man :
The opportunities of a life time.
The friendships of a life time.
These can be easily wasted — and the man who fails
to identify himself with the alumni and to keep in
touch with the institution is missing what can never
be replaced by later activity.
The alumnus who really gets all that he might out
of his college course is not the one who drops all con-
nection with the University and never thinks of it
again until some more loyal classmate pokes him up
to get him out to the quarter-century reunion.
Tour University days — members of 1917 — will
soon be over. The years can live again only in mem-
ory, but you can keep the memories fresh ; you can
live in touch with the friends who have come to hold
so large a place in your lives while making some re-
turn to the University for the many benefits received.
If you would not lose these good things that have
come from your college associations you must join
"the team" and keep in touch with the University
and those whose doings are of such absorbing interest
to you. Do not delay until you think you can afford
it — the cost is slight while the years move fast and

Fund which in June, 1916,

the editors spread the story from cover to cover — it
is such a splendid one!
Here are some of the big facts which challenge

Interest on Principal Fund 232,862.84
Gross Total. June. 1916 $1,609,222.63

In 1916 the receipts amounted to $146,280.53, of
which $70,000 was appropriated for supplying cur-
rent needs and the remainder was added to the per-
manent endowment fund.
Would you like to know where the money goes
which is appropriated for current needs ? It is an
extremely suggestive story, which we
take direct from the Yale editor's
1. A university cannot stand still. It must, be
advancing or losing ground. The permanent endow-
ments will hold the ground once gained; but it is
the Alumni Fund and other unrestricted income that
make possible new work and ever higher standards.
2. The Alumni Fund forms a large part of Yale's
general or unrestricted income. Here are a few il-
lustrations of what this Fund makes possible :
3. Until a few years ago no Yale professor re-
ceived more than $3,750 a year in salary. All the
salaries above that amount now (excepting a few
largely endowed professorships) are paid from Uni-
versity general funds.
4. The Alumni Fund, devoted by special vote par-
ticularly to increase in salaries, thus marks the dif-
ference between mediocrity and distinction in Yale's
5. Yale Democracy, beaten down to hardpan. is
represented by the Bureau of Appointments. Last
year 1,011 students at Yale earned about $250 apiece
to help pay their own way. Many of them couldn't
have done this if Yale hadn't helped them find jobs.
The Bureau that does this was run by general funds
until a recent endowment came in. This important
work was made possible by such income as the Alum-
ni Fund. It is now no longer a tax upon it. Here
help for a few years made possible a permanent es-
(!. A few months before the war an American was
sitting with a German scientist in a cafe in Vienna.
"I want my boy to be a doctor," said the American,
"where shall I send him to get the best preparatory
training?" "Send him to the Sheffield Scientific
School of Yale University," replied the German,
"Yale's courses and laboratories in biology are the
best in the world." Sheff was aided last year from
general University funds to the extent of $18,825
for increased salaries and $34,000 for general prog-
7. The new laboratories in biology and in physics
give the courses of the College, Sheffield, and the
Graduate School. They provide, too, for the brilliant
scientific feats of those men who, right here at Yale,
are adding to the field of human knowledge.
8. The president of Dartmouth has this year come,
to Yale to teach physics to Freshmen. A teacher
from Groton — a red-blooded fellow who helps to
coach the crew — and a professor from Princeton have
come this year to teach them Latin and Greek. Fresh-
men used to be taught chiefly by ill-paid and inex-
perienced "instructors." Now sixteen professors and
twenty-four assistant professors are teaching elemen-

better results — and costs more money.

course, largely by the extent of the support accorded
to a university by its own graduates that the world
judges of the right of that university to seek the co-
operation of others in planning for the future."

To all alumni, save the veterans of '61-'65, the cam-
pus today would present a most unusual and sobering
sight: Professors collecting and classi-
MOBILIZING fying information for military pur-
poses concerning the University's scat-
tered sons, and the campus resounding nightly with
commands incident to student drill. Elsewhere the
story of this activity called forth in this solemn hour
of national crisis is given.
That Carolina will, in this event, prove true to her
traditions, goes without saying. The walls of Me-
nu >rlal Hall speak eloquently of her sons of other
days, a testimony to whose valor is given in the fol-
lowing note from the Baltimore Evening Sun of
The University of North Carolina, like a num-
ber of other institutions of learning all over the coun-
try, is taking a census of its alumni and students with
reference to their availability for service in the war.
Blank questions are being sent to every man as to
his age, business, military experence and ability to
do any one of many things that would be useful in
war. The work is being carried on by a committee
of the faculty and alumni.
"Every Carolina mau will do his duty," is its
motto, and when we remember that almost the entire
student body volunteered in the Civil War, how the
Tarheels fought with Lee and Jackson and that the
first officer killed in the Spanish War was a North
Carolinian, a brother-in-law of Secretary Daniels,
who will doubt that the motto tells the simple truth ?
But it is not necessary to turn to the records of
the. past or to the columns of the press of neighbor-
ing states for testimony. The pres-
™£ K o«o£2L ence in recent weeks ^ North Caro-
hna streets ot the University men
tanned and erect from the months on the border is a
vital testimony to the readiness of Carolina sons to
serve whenever and wherever duty calls them. Of
one and all, whether still within or without the ser-
vice, who have kept vigil on the Texas plains, Alma
Mater is justly proud.

interesting reading to the men whose most cherished

in the weekly meeting of these two splendid organi-
And, in reality, it is time for the Societies to come
forward with something new, something constructive.
Some twenty odd years ago they combined their li-
braries with that of the University, laying the foun-
dation for the present library with its 80,000 volumes
and 800 current periodicals. In 1901 they contrib-
iii d half of the fund for the beginning of the cata-
loguing of the collection according to modern meth-
ods. Some $2000 was provided by them in the course
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of five years for this purpose. Ten years ago they
conveyed their holdings — some 12,000 or 15,000
volumes — in fee simple to the University. In 1912
they launched the High School Debating Union.
All this is fine. Isn't it too fine, in fact, for the
membership of today to rest in their labors? The
Review believes that in the present stirring there is
something prophetic of good for the future.
The Review calls attention to the following an-
nouncement taken from a recent Tar Heel and to
the article found elsewhere in
ihis issue relative to the new Sun-
day School Annex to be built by
the local Methodist Church.
Mr. James Sprunt, of Wilmington, has given to
the Presbyterian Church in Chapel Hill $30,000 to
be used in building a new and enlarged church. Mr.
Sprunt is one of the best known business men in the
State and one of the most generous in all good works.
He is a trustee of the University and has shown his
deep interest in its welfare by helpful aid in its time
of need. Among other things the series of Sprunt
Historical Monographs was established through his
He has made this gift of an adequate church be-
cause of his belief in the far-reaching influence of
the University and his desire to make this influence
the highest and the best. It is given too as a loving
memorial to his wife who had also felt a helpful liv
Lag interest in the University as was shown by her
own gifts out of her private means.
The officers of "the church are taking immediate
steps toward the fulfillment of these plans which all
have so much at heart.
THE SOCIETIES MAKE INNOVATIONS
Di and Phi Men Change Constitutions to Meet the Demands of the New Day
Straws indicate the way the wind is blowing.
The following story from a recent Tar Heel is a
straw. It establishes convincingly (as do the fuller
details following it) the fact that the Societies, con-
fronted in recent years with serious problems, and
threatened with actual death, have resolutely set
themselves to the task of maintaining their position of
constructive leadership on the campus.
The Dialectic Literary Society has caught the so-
cial and festive disease and last Saturday night the
august walls of Di Hall enclosed a scene of brotherly
society that is unprecedented in the annals of literary
and oratorical development at the University. For
three solid hours the members of that learned body
sat or stood around and swapped stories and smoked
the muse-hallowed weed. The old gentlemen in their
gilt frames may have frowned at first, but their looks
must have changed to those of envy when joke and
sandwich went round and inspired speeches flowed
from the lips of a few gifted souls. The framed gen-
tlemen no doubt knew the punch was not spiked, and
so they rested secure and watched the scene with
Every seat, except those that were broken, was
filled with an expectant member. The toastmaster,
no less a person than Mr. Sharp, occupied a conspicu-
ous position on the platform where all could see him.
Professor Hamilton was the first speaker. In a
short, friendly talk he congratulated the Society on
the smoker, and applauded the decision that they
should occur frequently in the future. Sam Ervin
recited some choice bits of his delightful poetry, and
Crawford eulogized the weed. Doc Harding, the
man who flunks boys in first physics, gave a short talk
and brought C. S. Harris into a dispute about grave-
yards, both sides being upheld with learned skill.
Marion Fowler spoke for a few minutes on the sub-
ject of service. "He profits who serves" was given
by Fowler as his motto. As an example of this he
cited the inventor of the universal car, Mr. Ford.
Professor Noble talked for a few minutes on the
German situation and deplored the lack of prepared-
ness shown by the United States. "We have no need
of an army ? Neither did Belgium think she would
ever use the 100,000 troops she was employing in
holding down government jobs, but look at Belgium
•today." Professor Noble was strongly in favor of
the plan to have a battalion here. A. M. Lindau's
talk on "Opinions" was particularly interesting. "The
lack of opinions among college men is appalling,"
said he. "They are as scarce as grapes at the North
Pole. Why can't we have the courage of convictions?
When we give in to what the other fellow thinks,
when we are afraid to have an opinion of our own,
we tacitly admit our brains to be inferior."
Goode was the last speaker. He spoke learnedly
on the Valdese, their manners, customs, and especi-
ally their good wine. He remarked parenthetically
that a Ford should have more springs in the back
seat — apropos, no doubt, of the wine.
During the talks sandwiches and other gastronom-
ical delicacies were passed around, and after the
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
last the punch-bowl made its appearance. The dip-
per, wielded by the muscular arm of Mr. Currie,
soon supplied everyone with the nectar, a mixture
peculiar to Hill festivities. The clink of the cups
made a sweet accompaniment to the lighter conversa-
tion that generally follows speeches, and when the
cigars and cigarettes had been passed around every-
one was at ease and the smoker was a pronounced
In order to make fundamental changes to meet
the requirements of the new day on the campus, it
was first necessary to re-write the constitutions. The
Phi did this in 1914-'15 ; the Di in 1916-'l7. One
of the first things to "go" under the new order was
the veil of secrecy covering the work of the Societies.
Now it applies only to the ritual, and no dead weight
is introduced into the membership by the joining of
those whose chief interest was curiosity. Similarly
the canvassing committees were instructed to limit
their activities so that the membership should not be-
come too unweildly. Both Societies also provided for
the honorable discharge of members in good standing
who wished to sever their relations, a privilege more
demanded than taken advantage of in actual practice.
Tn the Di one of the earliest reforms intended to
create a renewed interest in debating, was the privi-
lege of electing the subject to speak on. if the query
chosen by the committee was not satisfactory. This
was enacted in 1914, but the new constitution elimi-
nates that part of it and gives to the query committee
the additional power of selecting the speakers. Tn
doing so it does not heed class distinction but en-
deavors to choose those whom the committee knows
to be interested in the subject. The committee chooses
two speakers on each side with the liberty of choosing
two more if it sees fit, shortening in this way the
length of the debates and making them more inter-
esting, reserving at the same time to every one the
opportunity of speaking in the general debate which
follows and which has been this year for the first time
equally as important as the regular program.
The new constitutions endeavor to make the meet-
ings shorter and more lively not only by revising the
program but by carrying the business, as far as pos-
sible, to the adjourned meeting and to the committee
room. Hence there is an increase in the powers and
duties of the standing committees, and more time
saved for debating in the regular meetings.
Probably the most radical change effected within
recent years is the statute enacted this year in the
Di which provides for an informal smoker to be held
near the beginning of each semester. The first of
these sumkers held by the Di Society in February is
described in the foregoing paragraphs.
Nor have the movements of reform left entirelv
intact the debating systems, either Intra-society, In-
ter-society, or Inter-collegiate. The Freshman De-
bate of the Di has been changed this year by lessen-
ing the number of speakers from eight to four. Oa
the other hand, in order to open the debating field
to a greater number, the old Inter-Society Fresh-
Soph Debate has been resolved into two, one Free-
man and one Sophomore debate.
In the field of Tnter-collegiate debating, the So-
cieties have had for the past two years a debate with
George Washington University, held just before
Christmas, in addition to the Johns Hopkins-Vir-
ginia-Carolina spring Triangular. For the Triangu-
lar this Spring the Societies have chosen their de-
baters on Compulsory Arbitration of Industrial Dis-
putes according to the system established two years
ago in which the affirmative and negative contestants
debate the query delivering both an opening speech
and a rejoinder.
Considered as a whole the reforms have been suc-
cessful. Both societies are sufficiently prosperous
financially. New interest has been aroused in the
work and a new spirit is noticeable this year which
apparently indicates that the Societies have adjusted
themselves to new conditions and are thriving in
them. — C. C. Mitxer.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
CAROLINA RESPONDS TO THE CALL TO ARMS
Students, Faculty and Alumni are prepared in Spirit for the Impending Conflict
The call to arms finds Carolina men prepared in
spirit for the threatening conflict. More than a thou-
sand alumni have filled out and returned the informa-
tion blanks sent last month to the two thousand whose
addresses were available. About 75 per cent of these
signify their readiness to accept service in any line
for which they may be called.
The fires of the past burn strongly in the hearts of
the older alumni. A Confederate soldier writes, "I
surrendered at Appomattox but if my country needs
me I am ready immediately. I could shoot a Ger-
man about as well as most of the boys but I don't
believe I could run as fast as I once could." Another
who was wounded at Gettysburg is "ready to re-
sume today the duties which I dropped 52 years ago
and I can stand at least a month's campaign in active
service." Still another regrets that "at my age of 84
years the War Department would not accept me, but
I would like to march with the Allies into Berlin,
send the Hohenzollerns to St. Helena, free the Ger-
man people from that despotism and open the way for
peace and civilization onoe more." One North Caro-
linian, 67 years old, born in Missouri, educated at
Virginia, but a life long resident of this state, asks
to be rated among our men. He is vigorous and ac-
tive and we welcome him and his assertion that "ser-
vice should be based upon capacity to serve and not
upon age alone."
The sons of the men who were "first at Bethel and
last at Appomattox" bear witness to their heritage
of patriotism by their prompt and cheerful readiness
to exchange home and business for the red panoply
of war. Many offer not only themselves but their
factories, their automobiles, their motor-boats, their
hospitals and other equipment for government use.
One offers to equip and man two motor boats for
coast patrol. Many offer themselves for the danger-
ous but thrilling work of the aviation corps.
Favor Universal Service
General Wood's insistent cry for Universal Service
finds its echo in the hearts of many alumni. "I seem
a useless sort of person," writes one, "pretty suc-
cessful in my business, but ignorant of all military
matters; not trained in anything that would serve
the government in a crisis. But I am not too old to
learn and will answer whenever called. We should
have universal service." Again, "I am opposed to
war, but my seven brothers and I prefer to fight
rather than bear the horrible outrages perpetrated
against us by the Germans. We should have univer-
sal training, so that our service might be efficient and
expert rather than haphazard and futile." A young
lawyer knows "of no service for which I am quali-
fied, but I am ready to answer the call. We need
universal training and I rejoice at the voluntary or-
ganization at the Hill to acquire such training."
Five Hundred Men Drilling
Last year the whole State of North Carolina sent
less than sixty men to the Military Training Camp at
Plattsburgh. This year nearly one hundred men
from the University alone have made application to
the War Department for this training. In order
that they might derive the maximum benefit from the
Plattsburgh experience these men organized a few
weeks ago for voluntary drill during the remainder
of the session. Co-incident with this came the omi-
nous call for Congress to convene on April 2nd. In
forty-eight hours this scant company had become a
battalion ' of five hundred students and professors.
Urgent appeals were made to the War Department
for rifles and for an army officer as an instructor, but
none could be spared to us immediately. This tem-
porary failure could not dull the patriotic enthusiasm.
Under the guidance of football Coach T. J. Camp-
bell, aided by Professor Winston and a handful of
others who have had some military experience at pre-
paratory schools or at Plattsburgh the drill goes on.
Modern rifles have not been secured hut the manual
of arms is being taught with Civil War carbines, se-
cured for us by Mr. R. W. Glenn of Greensboro.
Though not an alumnus of this University he has
given freely of his time and of his energy to aid us
in this work. We wish to express to him thus public-
ly our deep appreciation of his unselfish and helpful
We deplore the impending dislocation of our aca-
demic life. But the die is cast. Our cause is just.
The sons of North Carolina stand ready for the call.

North and South Carolina with their Indian fron-

swamps, marshes, bays, creeks, harbors, sandbanks,
and soundings on the coast. With the roads and In-

lines, the several townships and other divisions of

and his associates must have followed all the streams
and roads for they have indicated not only the towns
and villages, but the country ordinaries or wayside
inns of that day, and the homes of the private citizens
This map is brought down to May 30, 1775, and
George Washington's copy is cut and mounted on
linen so as to fold into a size 9 by 12 inches, and
fit into a small valise or knapsack or go into the pocket
of saddle bags, while the map unfolded is 40 by 56
inches in size. The American Geographical Society
of New York owns this copy, and the Library of the
University of North Carolina has just acquired a
full sized photograph of it.
On the original map are three labels. The first is
written on a printed blank with an engraved border,
evidently French of the 18th Century.

Of course our own neighborhood is the most inter-
esting part of the map to us. There was no Chapel
Hill then, but the homes of T. Loyde, J. Patterson,
and Morgan, are shown; and the first two are occu-
pied today by Lloyds and Pattersons, and the Morgan
place is owned by the University which received it
by the will of Mrs. James Pleasant Mason who was
Mark Morgan's daughter. Hillsboro then, as now,
was a mill center, and we have there, among others,
Maddox's, Few's, Nasho's, Sinnott's, Wade's, Lows;
and Strudwick, Emery, and Land are among the
names of nearby dwellers in the county. The county
is full of "Chapels," which are today Presbyterian
and Baptist Churches, and on Flat River near Leeds
Mill we find Tapley Ordinary.
On or near the Indian Trading Path that runs to
Edenton we find the names of Emery, Gibbs, Eyre,
Hams, Benson, Granville, C. H., Burgh, Low, Haw-

fleet, Hill, Lockhart, Pollock, Dawson. A Weldon
lived where is now the town of Weldon, and not far
away was a Chapel with Edmondson's Ordinary.
South of Charlottburg lives Cap. Polk while to
the north we find Colon Alexander living near Alex-
ander's Mill, and still to the northwest lives Col.
Osborn. Near Salisbury is Whitehead's Mill. Wacho-
vie or Dobbs Parish is shown around Salem and New
Garden Meeting House is on the road from Salem to
In the Wilmington neighborhood we find the names

lier, Hawes, Harrison, Quince, Kinnette, Swan,
Heron, Rutherford Asche, McQuire, Dr. Green's
Mill, Dry, Smith, Jones, Corbin, Burrows, Lilling-
ton, Maxwell. Fayetteville does not exist but Cross
creek is indicated. There is no town of Washing-
ton, but there we have the home of the Bonners,
There is no Goldsboro but the Whitfields live near
Dobbs Court House.
There are two inset maps, the Harbor of Port
Royal and the Harbor and Bar of Charleston.
In South Carolina we have Precincts instead of
Counties. Among the names noted in Georgetown
Precinct are Austin, Powell, Saxby, Paisley, Alston,
St. Julian, Durant, Simmons, Kinloch, Galliard,
Bryan, Romain, McFadian, Bond. Varner.

Carraway Mountains, through Salisbury and Char-
lotteburg and runs down to the country of the Chero-
kees, Old Keohwee, near Toxawaw, to Echay, Tuge-

A copy of the original map was brought to Chapel
Hill by Professor Collier Cobb during the Christmas
holidays, and through him the photograph was secur-
ed. Another copy of this interesting and valuable
map is in the Library of Congress at Washington.
The program for Commencement, June 3, 4, 5, 6,
1917, as announced by the University, promises to
be of genuine interest, and reports from the alumni
indicate that the alumni features of the occasion will
be of the worth while order.

1902 PLANS FOR ITS 15-YEAR REUNION
The class of 1902 will hold its fifteen-year reunion
on June 5th, next. Arrangements are being made in
preparation for the largest gathering ever held by
any class which has been away from Chapel Hill as
long as fifteen years. A committee is in charge of it
and is making preparations to look after the men on
their arrival, including a place for them to sleep;
the class has been assigned the old South Building.
Each member of the class is urged to immediately
write R. S. Hutchison, at Charlotte, N. G, in regard
to his coming to the reunion.
TO MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1907
From T. Holt Haywood, of New York, president
of the class of 1907, and chairman of the reunion
committee, comes the following letter concerning the
big ten-year reunion which this class will hold at the
approaching commencement :
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
The different members of the class of 1907, I am
sure, will be gratified to know that the committee
for working up 1907's ten-year reunion has met
with a hearty response from the different members
of the class.
As chairman of the committee. I have written a
circular letter to each individual member of the
class, sending the letter to the last known address
of each member. Several of these letters have been
returned by the Post Office authorities, -as the per-
sons to whom they were addressed could not be lo-
cated ; so if any member did not receive one of thes°
letters, he will know it is because we have not his
We have, however, received responses from mem-
bers of the class of 1907 who are residing as far south
as Texas, and some who are living as far north as
near the Canadian border, and it is gratifying to see
how the different members are looking forward to
being "On the Hill" again, some of them not having
been there for ten years.
Judging by the business letterheads of most of
the replies we have received, the different members
of the class of 1907 seem to be doing well in their
respective avocations. An exceptionally large num-
ber of the members seem to be specializing as minis-
ters of the Gospel — we always knew that 1907 was
a pious class, but did not know that its taste ran quite
so strongly in this direction as recent developments
If there are any members of the class of 1907 who
have not advised whether or not they expect to be at
the reunion, I would appreciate it most heartily if
they would notify Mr. Thomas O'Berry, care of En-
terprise Lumber Co., Mount Olive, N. C, who has
kindly consented to take care of local arrangements.
Your committee wants to urge upon each member
to make every effort to be present at this reunion,
and we will guarantee that an attractive programme
will be arranged and that you will have a good time.
1892 PREPARES FOR QUARTER CENTURY REUNION
The class of 1892 is making plans for a great
twenty-five year reunion at commencement. The
class reunion committee has undertaken a campaign
to secure a very large attendance at commencement
from the 56 living members. This committee has
furnished the Review with the following informa-
tion of interest concerning the members of the class.

ALMA MATER CALLS YOU HOME
The University of North Carolina extends a hearty
welcome to her classes scheduled to hold reunions at
the approaching commencement. These classes are
1916, 1912, 1907, 1902, 1897, 1892. 1887, 1867
and 1857. Tuesday, June 5, has been selected as

union to have a few minutes at its disposal at the
general meeting on Alumni Day. Twenty minutes
are allotted to each class, and during this time short
talks are usually made by one or more members of the
class. Your class representative should be chosen
at once, and a complete program should be mapped
out for the activities of your class during its stay on
the Hill. This program should include, among other
things, provision for one or more meetings of your
class. A banquet or smoker or class dinner would be
We sincerely hope you can attend the reunion.
The University needs your presence and your class
needs your presence. And, apart from your reunion
and the pleasure which it will bring, you will thor-

THE SPRING FESTIVAL
Preparation has begun for the Spring Festival, to
be given on the University campus early in May.
This year's festival will differ in several particulars
from last year's. The elaborate pageant, appropri-
ate for the commemoration of the tercentennial of
Shakespeare's death, will not be repeated, but some-
thing equally as worthy of the University and equally
as expressive of the ability and interest of the stu-
dents in dramatic representation is to take the place
of the pageant.
This year there will be both an afternoon and an
evening program. The afternoon program will aim
especially at giving expression to whatever original
talent the community may possess for drama, songs,
and dances. School children and others who live in
Chapel Hill will contribute songs and dances, as they
did last year, and University students will present
whatever they are able to evolve in the way of pag-
eants, pantomines, or one-act plays. In the evening
there will be a Shakespeare play, presented by stu-
dents. Twelfth Night, which has been selected for
the performance, is well suited to the abilities of ama-
teur players and, with Sir Toby and Sir Andrew, not
to mention Maria and Malvolio, should be highly suc-
The success of last year's festival gives confidence
to those in charge of the arrangements this year. As
last year, the general direction will be in the hands
of the Department of English, but organizations such
as the Omega Delta Dramatic Society and the Com-
munity Club are expected to co-operate in making the
festival a creditable expression of community life.
STUDENTS TO CONTRIBUTE TO ALUMNI LOYALTY
Showing the sann spirit of liberality and tangible
appreciation of the University's services that the leg-
islature recently manifested in its educational appro-
priations, the student body has given an eager re-
sponse to the invitation of the Greater Council to
have every student contribute to the Alumni Loyalty
Fund. The idea of the Council in extending this
opportunity to the students is not only to stimulate
alumni by their example but to allow every student
to give a concrete evidence of his desire to have a
direct share in the increasing usefulness and greatness
of the University. — Tar Heel.
METHODISTS TO BUILD SUNDAY SCHOOL ANNEX
On Tuesday night. March 13th, the Building Com-
mittee of the Chapel Hill Methodist Church outlined
plans for the construction of a Sunday School build-
ing adequate to the needs of the present school and of
the enlarged enrollment which is to be expected from
the growth of the University.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
The Committee is composed of Dr. H. M. Wag-
staff, Dean Stacy, Mr. George L. Hackney, of Lex-
ington, Mr. F. S. Lambeth, of Thomasville, Rev.
N". H. D. Wilson, of Louisbnrg, Dr. D. B. Zollicoffer,
of Weldon, Dr. L. E. Wilson, Mr. Clyde Eubanks,
Mr. R. L. Strowd. Prof. N. W. Walker, Dr. E. A.
Abernetby, Dr. C. L. Raper, and Rev. Walter Patten.
The movement ha.* the support of the Western and
Eastern Conferences as well as of the local congrega-
tion, and it is proposed to erect a building which
will take care of the Sunday School for a number
of years. Later on the present church auditorium
will be removed and when it is rebuilt the new audi-
torium and the Sunday School building will form
one large structure. Plans provide at present for
an expenditure of $30,000.
In recent years the school has been most success-
ful in attracting a large number of the students, the
student class under Dr. C. L. Raper numbering 250,
with an average attendance of 125. The total enroll-
ment of the school at present is 420.
Carolina has given unusually good account of her-
self on the diamond up to the time of the Review's
going to press. The opening game with Bingham
was won 4-3 and against West Virginia the White
and Blue piled up the big score of 10-5. In the game
against Haverford the figures were larger still and
there was considerable romping around the bases —
WAKE FOREST TURNED TRICK
The story of the Wake Forest engagement runs
differently. Carolina started wrong, Powell yield-
ing three runs before settling down. Ten innings
were required to settle the count which went to Wake
Carolina hit Worth freely throughout a loosely
played game with the Presbyterians, winning 8-4.
Barnes' home run with three on and a great catch
by Weeks were the features. Llewellyn pitched steady
ball all the way, errors being chiefly to blame for

On April 7th Yale defeated Carolina on Emer-
son Field by the score of 4 to 2. Coleman pitched his

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
A most interesting pamphlet, "The Hampton
Roads Conference," has recently been widely dis-
tributed by the author, General Julian S. Carr (class
of 1866). In this lecture, every important available
source of information now known to be extant has
been resorted to. This contribution to history has
been commented on by leading magazines and news-
papers in all parts of the United States. The author
succeeds in refuting the oft-repeated and popular er-
ror to the effect, that President Abraham Lincoln
said to Mr. Alexander Stephens that if Union were
written at the top of the articles of agreement, the
Southern Commissioners might fill in the balance.
The second edition has recently appeared of the
useful and convenient handbook, published by the
North Carolina Geological and Economic Survey, en-
titled: "Some Facts and Figures about North
( larolina and Her Natural Resources" (Edwards and
Broughton Printing Co., Raleigh). This little book-
let for pocket use is only 50 pages of length, but it
contains an extraordinary amount of valuable in-
formation — on such subjects as Forests, Good Roads,
Drainage, Geology and Mineral Resources, Water-
Powers and Fishing Industry.
"A Laboratory Guide for Beginners in Geology"
(New Era Printing Co., Lancaster, Pa.), by John E.
Smith, Instructor in Geology in the University of
North Carolina, is now available for the use of stu-
dents. A book of some ninety pages, it contains an
extraordinarily large number of problems for the use
of geology classes beginning the subject ; and the exer-
cises here collected are "intended to be used as sup-
plementary to those usually found in texts." Tables
of common minerals and of common rocks are given
at the end. The main division of the guide are:
Physiography, Structural Geology, Historical Geol-
ogy, Agricultural Geology and Geography, Naviga-
tion, and Minerals and Rocks.
Useful by-products of the lectures in Post-Gradu-
ate Medical Instruction, inaugurated by this Uni-
versity during the summer of 1916, are two volumes
embodying the principal subjects considered in these
lectures. There are "Lectures in Pediatrics," one and
two, by Dr. Louis Webb Hill, of Harvard University,
and Dr. Jesse R. Gertley, of Northwestern Univer-
sity, respectively. These handbooks are not only
valuable for the practising physician: they contain
the very information often needed imperatively by
parents. Certainly, these booklets will repay study
by the layman, especially by the interested mother.
In themselves they demonstrate what the lectures
themselves abundantly show, the value and utility of
these post-graduates medical courses.
A most interesting and instructive address, which
mutatis mutandis, would have almost equal force and
pertinency delivered in any county of North Caro-
lina, is "Farm Prosperity in Forsyth" by Professor
Branson, published and distributed by the Board of
Trade of Winston-Salem. No convenient summary
of the address can be made — other than the statement
that it deals with both "the city and county ends of
the problem" and gives an intensive summation of
the local problem involved. The greatest value of
such an address — a symbol of the survey now being
made of the county — is the effect, as of a searchlight
bringing clear before one the problems involved and
clearly suggesting certain desirable remedies and re-
forms entirely feasible of immediate and early appli-
cation. Immense and never-ending is Professor
Branson's patriotic labor, and though his strength
were as the strength of ten, there would still be
room in North Carolina for more work of this splen-
did sort to be done by him.
An event of importance in the educational year in
North Carolina is the publication of the "Annual Re-
port of the State Inspector of Public High Schools
of North Carolina." The ninth report, by Professor
Walker (class of 1903), for the year ending June 30,
1916, has recently appeared from the office of the
State Superintendent of Public Instruction. In the
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
summary, it is recorded that last year new buildings
for twenty schools were erected, or erecting, totaling
a cost of $285,200. At the close of the school year, it
appears that the cost of improvements made since
last report (up to December, 1915) has been $348,-
350. This volume is rich in facts and figures, indi-
cative of our educational progress; and illustrations
of especial interest are "The Chapel Hill School,"
the cooking and sewing departments in the Chapel
Hill School, and the State champions — the Girls' Bas-
ketball Squad of the Chapel Hill High School, 1916.
Professor Wm. Cain, head cf the department of
Mathematics, recently delivered a series of lectures
to the students of Vanderbilt University, February
26, 27, and 28, as Southern University Exchange
Lecturer. Three of these lectures were on technical
subjects. The first lecture dealt with Cohesion and
Friction in Earth, appealing to the student in physics
as well as to the engineering students; the last two
lectures, with Earth Pressure and Eetaining Walls,
being intended for engineering students only. The
analytical work — along original lines — in extension
of the subjects of the lectures, was printed in pam-
phlet form and distributed among the students for
future reference or study.
The lecture on "Mathematics, Historically Con-
sidered," was non-technical and dealt with the evolu-
tion of mathematics, from the most elementary con-
cepts and leading up gradually to the severely rigor-
ous forms of the Greeks and Moderns. Stress was
laid upon the contribution of mathematics to the
world's progress and to Napoleon's dictum that it
was a vital asset to the state. A large audience was
present at the lecture.
This "popular" lecture was likewise given in At-
lanta to the students and others of the Georgia School
During his stay in Nashville, Professor Cain, a
former Director of the American Society of Civil
Engineers, spoke by special invitation at a luncheon
of the civil engineers of Nashville.
Many hospitalities were extended him by members
of the Vanderbilt faculty. A cordial welcome was

At the beginning of the present term the Depart-
ment of English, with the co-operation of the Library
staff, inaugurated a new and liberal plan for induc-
ing the freshman student to read good literature
widely in accordance with his own predilections.
Professor Norman Foerster. to whom belongs the
credit for originating the idea, hopes that it may dis-
arm the two prejudices, sometimes found among
freshmen if not among upper-classmen, that the Li-
brary is a side-issue and that "parallel reading" in a
college course is either a nuisance or a farce. Oc-
casionally an adroit student contrives to spend the
whole of his first year on the campus in almost com-
plete ignorance about the most important of scholastic
buildings : and very many students, not appreciating
the liberties involved in the theory of "parallel read-
ing," regard such reading as an unrighteous and
savorless task, to be deferred throughout term time
until they must cover several thousand pages just be-
fore examinations, at the perhaps negligible risk of
bursting their brains.
Yet students, like other rational men, are willing
enough to browse among good books, and one of the
best features of Mr. Foersters scheme is that it rec-
ognizes the cultural value of browsing. The pastur-
age consists of a thousand volumes placed on open
shelves in the main hall of the library; and the mem-
bers of the first-year class in English are informed
that they are expected to read at large, taking books
home if they like, for a minimum of four hours a
fortnight. Instructors give no advice or prescrip-
tions, unless at the student's request, but are satisfied
with simple evidence that the reading has been done.
The thousand volumes, to which the students are in-
vited to suggest additions, are selected as humanly as
possible, and the range is very wide. In addition to
standard works in English and American literature,
the shelves include translations from the works of
foreign authors, ancient and modern ; a consider-
able number of contemporary writers; and works,
not eminently literary, in natural science, economics,
history, government, etc. A limited amount of read-
ing in current periodicals is accepted ; but the list of
such magazines is restricted to the New Republic,
Nation, Atlantic, Century, Harpers, New York
Times Current History, North American Review,
Review of Reviews, Scribners, World's Work, Un-
popular Review, and Yale Review.
Pedagogically, the plan has the advantage of leav-
ing as much as possible to the student's own initiative
and preference. Practically, it seems to be making
hirn read: in three hours after the new shelves were
established L50 volumes were taken our for home use,
and in twenty-four hours nearly a third of the stock
was in home circulation.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
FIVE RINDS OF ALUMNI
A certain kind of graduate
Consigns Virginia to her fate,
And says in accents cold and calm :
"For her I do not give a damn !"
Another type alumnibus
Is quite a different kind of cnss.
"I love the dear old place !" he'll say.
But never joins the G. A. A.
A third species of loyal son
Delights to have his nights of fun,
At annual banquets he is seen, —
Forgets Virginia in between !
A fourth returns to all the games,
In accents loud his love proclaims.
At Finals he is on the spot, —
Is he a member ? No, he's not !
A fifth there is, — Allah be praised !
To him let monuments be raised !
He takes and reads the Alumni News
And promptly pays his annual dues.

RADIO-ACTIVITY BY FRANCIS P. VENABLE
The wonderful development of our knowledge of
the nature and structure of matter through the dis-
covery of radio-activity is only imperfectly treated in
the ordinary courses in general chemistry. This brief
treatise has been written to fill a want which must
have been felt by many. If may also prove useful to
busy men in other branches of science who wish to
know something of radio-activity and have scant
leisure in which to read the larger treatises.
It is published by D. C. Heath & Co.
LEADS THE SOUTH IN CHEMICAL RESEARCH
The press service of the University recently sent
out the following note relative to the amount of ma-
terial contributed to periodical literature by the de-
partment of chemistry:
A recent number of Science gives a census of peri-
odical literature pertaining to chemical research in
the United States published in the years 1009-1010
and 1014-1015. The University of North Carolina
is one of 13 universities mentioned as having pub-
lished ten or more articles during the first period,
and is the only Southern university in the list. In
the larger list, which includes all schools and bureaus
that have published as many as five research articles
in the same periods North Carolina is one of the
four Southern State universities to be mentioned.
The other three are Tennessee, Kentucky and Texas.

To members of 1902 :
I regret the condition of my health has been such that I
have been unable as secretary of the class to keep in touch
with our class-mates. My health failed me while I was a
member of the Faculty of The State Normal College in
November, 1914, and it was later found that I had developed
tuberculosis. My entire time since, with the exception of five
short months, has been spent in sanitoria seeking a cure with
varying degrees of success.
Some of my class-mates, knowing the expenses connected
with a prolonged treatment of the disease, and also well aware
of the limited resources of a teacher, made known the facts
in my case to other class-mates and all unexpected to me
I received from the class this message, "We want to help
you get well," accompanied by very substantial financial aid
which has enabled me to take treatment under the best con-
dition. This, it seems to me, is a fine example of the Uni-
versity Spirit. My gratitude to my fellow class-mates of
the class of 1902 is beyond the power of words to express.
This kindly deed stirs up the deepest emotions of my soul.
I doubt if any class in the history of the University has
been quite so generous. I am under treatment at the Fair-
view Cottage Sanitorium, Asheville, and hope that I am im-

Editor Alumni Review,
Dear Sir :
Enclosed please find a check for $1, for which send me
the Review for a year. At the end of that time remind me
to send you another dollar, and so on, ad infinitum.
I suppose I don't belong among the alumni, but my dollar
is as good as theirs, and my interest in and love for the Uni-
versity is as strong as that of any alumnus in the world. I
was at Chapel Hill for only two years, but I couldn't love
it any more if I had been at the laying of the first brick.
Success to the University and the Review, and my regards
through the latter's columns, to every member of my French
classes in 1911 and 1912. Sincerely yours,

astounding fact that next June will mark the fifth anniver-

lina? Sounds impossible, doesn't it? Truth! nevertheless.
And now that you are thoroughly alive to the situation, we
feel sure that you desire to make that reunion we are due to
pull off one of the most pleasant and profitable occasions
ever staged on the 'Hill.' "
"President Drane's reunion committee wants every loyal
1912 man on the 'Hill' when the curtain rises for the big
show. The stunt committee, with 'Bob' Hanes in the lead,
promises a program that will make you proud of old 1912
and glad of the opportunity of coming 'back home' to meet
the 'boys.' Alumni Day will be a red letter day for you,
fellow class-mate, if you don't 'grat' the reunion."

Let the old days live again. What a wonderful fellowship
it fosters ! Recall the faces and scenes. 'Bob, don't you re-
member the night "Pug" opened that box from home and we
all went around? Just think, he is an Episcopal clergyman
now.' 'Yes, and do you remember "Opie" in the corner
room, who used to keep a live black snake for a pet? Well,
he's a full-fledged doctor now, feeding pills, cutting them up,
and all that sort of thing. And "Fuzzy," who would roll up
across the hall when he thought the sophs were around ;
well he's pleading cases now ; and "Crip," the rheumatic,
who would have to ride to meals on his roommate's back,
but who conquered rheumatism with optimism ; well, he
is in the Phillippines now. instructing our little Brown
Brothers, as he and ex-President Taft call them ; and "Huff"
the scholar of the class, who instead of studying for exams
would get out his fiddle and plug of tobacco and play the
part of Nero; he's engaged in singing lullabys now, and
running a hosiery mill as a side line ; and ' "

DID THIS HAPPEN IN YOUR HOME?
"Whew, it's hot !" said the tired business man as he landed on the top step
of the porch and was welcomed by his smiling wife and two armsful of children.
"Why, we don't mind it at all," objected the wife, with a knowing smile.
"No," chimed in the kiddies, "we don't mind it at all."
"You don't!" exclaimed the astonished husband. "You don't!" he re-
peated. And he looked out at the people in the street to see if they were showing
the effect of a sweltering day, as he was. They were! Thus reassured as to

icicle Jack put down my neck last winter."

makes summer heat quit bothering you. Made of the purest fruit juices and
other perfectly pure ingredients. That's why so many mothers use it as the
only beverage fit for their growing children (luring the warm months.
