As the "Review" goes to press President Graham is issuing the following 
highly important statement to the press and people of North Carolina. To 
you, fellow alumni, it is a special call to be present and participate in a great 
patriotic meeting. Alma Mater calls every one of her sons not at Oglethorpe 
or elsewhere in the Federal service to join her in this, her expression of loyalty 
to the nation in its hour of supreme crisis. 

"In response to urgent invitations extended to the Secretary of War and 
to the Secretary of the Navy to visit North Carolina on the occasion of the 
commencement of the University, we have the acceptance of each of these great 
officials of the government, and assurances that they will be present and speak 
in Memorial Hall of the University, June sixth, at eleven A. M. 

"Few men in the world have responsibilities at this moment so great as 
these two men. Their coming to the State now is an event of unusual import- 
ance, and we trust that it may be made memorable by a great patriotic cele- 
bration, testifying our confidence in the administration of our government and 
our complete and enthusiastic loyalty to the supreme cause in which our coun- 
try is engaged. We therefore invite the people of this State and section to come 
to the University and join in a worthy tribute of welcome to Secretary Baker 
and to Secretary Daniels. 

"Should either or both of them be prevented from coming by any cir- 
cumstance, inunediate notice will be telegraphed to the papers." 

The departure on May eighth of about one hun- University resource to be instantly and fully ready

of intensive military training should call. These activities have been previously

the great fact of our participation in it, have, in and assured faith in the nation, and a passionate 

spite of all desire to keep our normal business going thankfulness that they are indeed and truly her sons, 
on as usual, chiefly absorbed the attention of students 
and faculty alike. Our books have been in our 

hands, and we have answered "present" at our tasks; A large proportion of the University students who 

but our eyes have been looking over the rim of the have gone to Fort Oglethorpe are members of the 

college year and across the college walls to the strug- senior class. They are awarded 

gling world outside. Not that we have been merely THEIR DEGREES their degrees just as if they had 

dreaming. We have been as intelligently busy as stayed through till June sixth, 

we know how to be in organizing and preparing every Some specially qualified underclassmen also went. 



If their class room work was satisfactory up to May 
first, they were given credit as if the term had been 
completed. Military drill by the eight University 
companies has gone on each afternoon from 4:30 tj 
6:00 P. M. on the athletic field. The local authori- 
ties have been assisted in the work by. Captain H. 
H. Broadhurst, U. S. A., who was detailed by the 
government to come over once a week, and by Lieuten- 
ant L. P. McLendon of the National Guard, and bv 
Sergeant Donnelly. With the opening of the 1917- 
18 session, it is expected that a Reserve Officer i' 
Training Corps will be definitely established here. 
In addition to the undergraduates who have gone to 
Fort Oglethorpe, a large number of the young alumni 
have enlisted here. No figures are yet available; 
but from applications received at the college office, 
it appears that the number will go to at least two 


No changes have been made in the approaching 
commencement, except that the dances and other so- 
cial feature s that follow the 

1917 AND THE WAR re 8' ular exercises have been cut 
out. The Review had no 
strong feeling for eliminating the dances. We be- 
lieve in taking our war medicine seriously : but we 
do not believe in taking it solemnly. However, on 
the whole, we incline to the belief that the students 
acted with a true sense of propriety in deciding to 
omit the dances. As for the remainder of the pro- 
gramme, we are glad to know that it will go forward 
as usual, and that the indications are for a larger 
number of returning alumni than at any time dur- 
ing recent years. This is precisely as it should be. 
The University was never so dear to the alumni as 
it is now ; it was never so much in their thoughts ; it 
never so much needed their informed advice and 
other help ; it never had a finer outlook for service. 
The years following the war are to be beyond all 
question the greatest and most fruitful years in the 
history of higher education in this country. We are 
ready to serve the country now in the moment of its 
war-time need ; we need even more to prepare for the 
great period of peace to follow. 


So come back! Come back for Tuesday, -Tune 
fifth, for your class re-union. We want to see you, 

and we want you to see us. If your class 
PRESENT fmesn 't have a re-union, come back for the 

alumni conference and the alumni lunch- 
eon. We want you to help reorganize the alumni 

association, and to help get that body in working 
shape for the great work ahead. 

For your own comfort, there are certain details 
to which you should give early attention. Do not 
fail to send your check to E. R. Rankin for your 
tickets for the luncheon. They are $1.00 each, and 
failure to secure one before your return may possibly 
inconvenience you in getting to the luncheon prompt- 
ly. Reservations will be filled in the order requests 
are received, and if it is desired seats can be reserved 
for groups. But Mr. Rankin, the Secretary, must 
know beforehand. 

And don't fail to make reservations for the ladies 
who will be with you ; for they are invited and will 
be most cordially welcomed. 


University students in large numbers have gladly 
responded to such national service as the country 

seemed to require, without re-

ALUMNI SERVICE amDltl0ns - lhelr g 0ln g and tne 

manner of their going is a mat- 
ter of deej) pride to their Alma Matei. She knew 
that they would do precisely as they have done, but 
she rejoices none the less that her faith is so abun- 
dantly justified. 

One unescapable result necessarily follows: their 
going greatly weakens her at least temporarily. The 
importance of keeping the college plant going at full 
speed, the importance of not being diverted from the 
recent rapid strides of progress, is tremendous. It is 
primarily important to the college now and to the 
country that the stream of college-trained men is 
kept at full strength, and that the college organiza- 
tion is kept at full strength. The situation presents 
a splendid opportunity for alumni who have no na- 
tional service to render directly at present. They 
can render this essential service to the University 
and to the State and to the country: they can see that 
the young men in their immediate neighborhood have 
the opportunity to go to the University, and see that 
the opportunities of University education are made 
clear. Will not each alumnus who reads this note 
make a special and extraordinary effort this year to 
do this, make it a point of practical, personal pride 
to see to it that at least one boy goes through his in- 
fluence ? Organize a group of working alumni in 
your county to see that the county is thoroughly 
covered. Get the names of prospective students from 
your county, and see them personallv now before 
they make other plans. See that no present student 
of the University drops out for lack of means to con- 




tinue his work. If he is a boy of good character, 
you run no risk in lending him money. Don't throw 
■this aside, or leave it to some one else to do. Do 
something about it yourself now. The University 
hasn't one-third as many scholarships at its disposal 
as it can place advantageously with worthy boys this 
summer. Sixty dollars would give some boy the op- 
portunity of a scholarship for one year.

eral service. In all such cases the University wishes 
the new address. This is extremely important as in 
no other way can it maintain touch with the alumni 
and make an accurate record of the part they take in 
the great world conflict. 


If there is any one particular in which the Revii w 
feels that it has failed more signally than in any 
other in the task assigned it to 
make itself interesting to its 
readers, it is that of securing 
letters from the alumni. ft has exhausted its re- 
sources in this direction without avail. 

But in this hour of supreme crisis we trust there 
may be a change of fortune. Heretofore the alumni 
attitude has been that there has been nothing of in- 
terest to write about, lint the war situation is teem- 
ing with interest and the Review expects a steady 
supply of letters from the training camps, the ambu- 
lance corps, the air squadrons, etc., etc. And with 
the letters there should be pictures representing every 
phase of the service in which alumni are engaged. 

Don't let this opportunity pass. It will give an 
interest to this publication which nothing eles in 
the world can give it. Who will be first, please ? 


From a recent Tar Heel we clip the following ex- 
cellent statement of the realization of duty which 
has been borne in upon the conscious- 
STAY ness °^ ever . v University student who 

has seen his comrades march away to 
camp but who has been left behind to continue his 
work here : 

"Perhaps it is harder to stay than to go. Cer- 
tainly it is for many men. Yet the call to the campus 
is as clear and insistent as the calh-to the camp. 

"To the war-inflamed minds of almost all of us. 

it now seems useless and almost farcical to study 
and go on classes. 'How stale, and unprofitable' to 
us are all the uses of history, economics, science, Eng- 
lish and other lifeless routine class-work. 

"Yet now as never before it is the duty of the col- 
lege student to breathe life into the lifeless work, to 
make his knowledge of economics, history, science, 
and so forth so accurate, deep, clear and alive that 
he can use it to serve most efficiently his community 
and his country. Not the man in the trenches or in 
the machine-shop or on the farm, but the college stu- 
dent, — the college student pre-eminently has both 
the leisure and the environment best suited to enable 
him in the future to sense and solve the probl ms of 
his nation and of the whole world. 

"Those who stay in college now and fail to do the 
best work they can are the mental cowards and slack- 
ers, the intellectual deserters of their country." 


During the week beginning April 23, the lectures 
on the Southern University Exchange Foundation 
were delivered here by Professor Herbert dishing 
Tolman, S. T. D., Dean of the College of Arts and 
Sciences of Vanderbilt University. In his first lec- 
ture, given in Gerrard Hall on Monday evening, 
when he was happily introduced by Professor 
Bernard, Dr. Tolman spoke on "The Achievement 
of Life," and analyzed the principal laws underlying 
education, development, and progress. This lecture, 
as well as his Chapel Talk on "Faith" to the students 
Wednesday morning, was strongly religious in tone — 
a reminder that I >r. Tolman is a minister of the Epis- 
copal Church, and for three summers past has oc- 
cupied the pulpit of Old Trinity Church in Wall 
Street, New York. A highly technical paper was 
read by Dr. Tolman before the Philological Club, on 
Tuesday evening, in which were considered "The Re- 
cently Discovered Turfan Inscriptions, dealing with 
the Crucifixion." Excellent audiences heard Dr. 
Tolman's two lectures, illustrated with beautiful lan- 
tern slides, appealing especially to the classical j tn- 
dents but of genuine interest to the general public: 
"The Shrines of Hellas" and "The Ancient Modu- 
ments of Persia." Dr. Tolman's broad scholarship, 
his intimate studies of the monuments by personal 
tours in Greece and Persia, and his genial simplic- 
ity and charm of presentation all combined to nnke 
these lectures rarely interesting and informing. 

John Nolen, landscape architect from ( 'ambridge, 
.Mass., has recently been at the University planning 
the further expansion of University buildings and 



More Than Two Hundred Carolina Students and Alumni Enroll in the Fort Oglethorpe Training 

Camp for Officers' Reserve Corps 

"Ich kann nicht anders" declared the great leader 
of tlie Reformation. "We can not do otherwise" 
reiterates Woodrow Wilson. 

This thought finds echo in every Carolinian's heart. 
It is in search of "no selfish end" that nearly 200 
students of the University of North Carolina have 
sought admission to the Fort Oglethorpe Training 
Camp for officers. The searching physical examina- 
tion to which all were subjected resulted in the re- 
jection of nearly fifty applicants, some because of 
suhnormal weight, some because of defective vision 
or hearing, and others for various minor ailments. 
The earnest desire of these men for service is re- 
flected in their urgent pleas for acceptance in spite 
of physical deficiencies. 

Two Hundred Go to Camp 

A total of 134 have been accepted among whom 
are over sixty per cent of the senior class and three 
members of the faculty. The applications of numer- 
ous others have not yet been acted upon. A large 
number who are below twenty-one years of age have 
urged in vain that the age limit be waived. Many 
who are not eligible for the Officers' Eeserve Corps 
have enlisted as privates in the regular army or in 
the National Guard. That this desire for military 
service is not merely the contagious enthusiasm of 
youth but is an earnest sense of patriotic duty is 
shown by the fact that among the alumni as well as 
among the students the call to arms has met a prompt 
response. From every quarter of the State our form- 
er students are enrolling for the Training Camp, 
many of them are coming back to Chapel Hill in 
order that they may enroll from their Alma Mater. 

Dr. Pratt Receives Commission 

Dr J. H. Pratt has received his commission as 
Major of Engineers and will command the battalion 
which he has organized. Captain Myers, an alumnus 
of the University, will command the Greensboro 
company. At the present writing Dr. Pratt is in 
Washington representing this State in a National 
Defense Conference. This conference, called by the 
Secretary of War, "consists of one delegate from each 
state for the purpose of considering the relations of 
state and Federal activities in the prosecution of the 
war and the methods of organizing state and local 
defense committees and their co-operation with the 
Council of National Defense." 

Faculty Favored Selective Draft 

While the fate of the Chamberlain bill was still in 
the balance the Faculty "Resolved, that the Secretary 
of the Faculty be instructed to write in the name of 
the Faculty to our Senators and Representatives in 
Congress strongly urging the adoption of the prin- 
ciple of the selective draft for the military service of 
the United States." 

Seniors and Others Receive Academic Credit 

In anticipation of the withdrawal of many stu- 
dents for military service before the close of the ses- 
sion it has been decided that to those who may enlist 
in either army or navy and to those who may enroll 
in the Reserve Officers' Training Camp full credit 
for the session's work will be granted in those subjects 
in which at the time of such enlistment or enrollment 
they may have a satisfactory standing. As a corollary 
to this the seniors who leave under these circum- 
stances will receive their degrees as though they had 
completed their full course. 

University Outlines Policy 

Although such credits are granted even to the un- 
derclassmen whose sense of patriotism impels them to 
forsake their studies for sterner duties, yet it is the 
strong belief of the faculty that these younger men 
can perform their highest service to our country by 
remaining in the University for the present and con- 
tinuing their scholastic work. The greater maturity 
of mind and body and the broader educational foun- 
dation resulting from further study will so increase 
their capacity for service that their greater useful- 
ness one or two years hence will easily counterbalance 
the value of the service they can now perform. We 
are entering a prolonged as well as a grave war. It 
is an important duty to maintain the steady supply 
of well trained college men who must constitute the 
source from which the most satisfactory subalterns 
are to be drawn. 

Commencement to be as Usual 

In full recognition of the gravity of the times the 
University purposes to exert every energy toward 
preparing her young men for military duty. But at 
the same time it is highly important that we should 
not give way to any form of martial hysteria. So far 
as possible the ordinary curriculum and the ordinary 
social life of the University will be continued. Many 
changes and additions that look toward equipping the 



students for the serious international struggle will 
be made. No frivolities nor trivial things may be 
permitted to interfere with genuine preparation for 
national service. But the human being who entirely 
eschews all the lighter things of life becomes morbid 
and inefficient. The soldiers in the trenches have 
their games, their amateur theatricals, their various 
amusements whenever the lulls in conflict permit. 
Otherwise they would , go mad. In appreciation of 
these elements of human psychology it is purposed to 
have our commencement exercises as usual. 

Military Instruction to be Offered 

Similarly no unnecessary changes in the course 
of academic life for next year, nor in the plans for 
the Summer School and in the regular session nexl 
year. A carefully planned course of military in- 
struction will be offered. This course will be op- 
tional, but those electing it will be required to give 
it the same attention and study demanded in the 
regular academic classes. Scholastic credit will \v 
granted for satisfactory work. The interest already 
shown in this work promises that this course will 
be taken by a large proportion of the student body. 
The Faculty Committee on Military Training is i n 
gaged in outlining a series of special courses to be 
offered next year which will contribute toward mili- 

tary efficiency. As examples may be mentioned wire- 
less telegraphy, the chemistry of munitions, military 
hygiene, and first aid work. 

McLendon and Campbell Aid 

About the middle of April the time for military 
drill was changed from one hour on two evenings a 
week to an hour and a half five afternoons in the 
week. It now supersedes baseball and all other ath- 
letics. Captain Broadhurst, the Commandant at the 
A. & E. College, has visited us for a day each week 
and has given us the benefit of his advice and sug- 
gestions. Lieutenant McLendon, who is well remem- 
bered on the campus as a capable student and who 
lias acquired reputation as an attorney, as a legislator, 
and as an efficient officer in the National Guard, has 
again proved his loyalty to his Alma Mater by tak- 
ing charge of the training of the battalion. A great 
loss was sustained when Coach T. J. Campbell left 
for a week's visit to his home, before going to the 
Reserve Officers' Camp at Plattsburg. He had or- 
ganized the battalion and had established it upon a 
firm basis. As an athletic coach, as an organizer of 
our military unit, and still more as a strong man 
and loyal friend, we miss him. Others may carry 
on his work but can not fill his place.

The Victory in Fifth Annual Final Contest of High School Debating Union Goes to Vinson Smathers 

and Roy Francis of the Waynesville High School 

The fifth annual final contest of the High School 
Debating Union was held at the University on Thurs- 
day and Friday. April 19th and 20th. Messrs. Vin- 
son Smathers and Koy Francis, representing the 
Waynesville high school, were victorious over all 
others and carried away the debating trophy, the Ay- 
cock Memorial Cup. They won the decision in the 
tinal debate in Memorial Hall, upholding the affirma- 
tive side of the query. Resolved, That the Federal 
Government should own and operate the railways. 
They were opposed in the final debate by Misses 
Gladys Andrews and Emma Lindsay, of the Mount 
Olive high school, defending the negative. 

Two hundred and ninety-six debaters — 101 of 
them girls — representing 74 high schools, came from 
54 comities in all sections of the State to participate 
in the final contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup. 
Debaters were present from eastern points, such as 
Manteo, 1 )are county ; Sladesville, Hyde county ; and 
Atlantic, Carteret county. From the west repre- 

sentatives came from Almond and Bryson < iiy, 
Swain county; Glade Valley, Alleghany county; 
Jefferson, Ashe county; Asheville, Waynesville and 
other extreme points. The final contest of the De- 
hating Union, the inter-scholastic track meet and the 
tennis tournament, altogether made up High School 
Week in the University's calendar. Fully 600 vis- 
itor- came in Chapel Hill for the week. They were 
heartily welcomed and their stay was made enjoyable. 
They carried hack with them to the high schools and 
the various communities a new knowledge of the co- 
operative work of the State University. 

The Preliminaries 

The 296 debaters who participated in the final con- 
tesl had all been successful in their triangular de- 
bates on March 30th, in which series 1,324 debaters 
representing 331 high schools in 92 counties of the 
State participated. 

A general meeting; of debaters and teachers was 



held in the auditorium of the Peabody building on 
Thursday afternoon, April 19. Professor 1ST. W. 
Walker presided over this meeting and extended a 
hearty welcome to the visitors. The teams on the 
affirmative were divided by lot into ten sections for 
the first preliminary Thursday night, and the teams 
on the negative were likewise divided into ten sec- 
tions. From each of these sections one team was 
chosen for a second preliminary on Friday morning, 
April 20th. The schools which had teams making 
the second preliminary ,on the affirmative were: 
Waynes ville. Pleasant Garden, Gatesville, Calypso. 
Wilmington, Benson, Mount Olive, -Graham, Ashe- 
ville and Mount Airy. The schools having teams in 
the second preliminary on the negative were: 
Mount Olive, Troy, Charlotte, East Bend, Wendell, 
Sylvan, Laurinburg, Pleasant Garden, East Durham 
and Waynesville. The schools having teams in the 
second preliminary, both affirmative and negative, 
were: Waynesville, Pleasant Garden and Mount 

The Final Debate 

The largest crowd which has ever witnessed a final 
high school debate at the University gathered on the 
occasion of this year's final debate on Friday night, 
April 20th, the entire assemblage numbering 2000 
persons and more than filling Memorial Hall. The 
audience consisted of students and members of the 
faculty of the University, citizens of Chapel Hill, 
debaters, athletes, teachers, principals, superinten- 
dents and the large number of other visitors who had 
come from various parts of the State. 

President E. K. Graham presided over the debate. 
Mr. R. O. Everett, of Durham, a member of the class 
of 1903, presented the Aycock Cup to the winning 
team in behalf of all the University's inter-collegiate 
debaters. Dean M. C. S. Noble, of the School of 
Education, presented the cups and medals to win- 
ners in the inter-scholastic track meet. The stage of 
Memorial Hall had been appropriately decorated for 
the occasion. The young debaters were given pro- 
longed applause frequently throughout the debate. 

President Graham commented on the growth of 
the High School Debating Union and spoke of the 
present scope and extent of its work. He declared 
the high school debate to be the happiest occasion 
which the University knows. He emphasized the 
value of the debating system in developing good citi- 
zenship and good sportsmanship. He referred to the 
schools which had in past years won the Aycock Cup, 
Pleasant Garden, Winston-Salem, Wilson and Gra- 

The Speakers 

Vinson Smathers was the first affirmative speaker 
for Waynesville high school. After referring to the 
changing social and political conditions he laid down 
his three propositions: That the present system of 
railroad ownership is wasteful in management; that 
it is a source of corrupting political influence; that 
the Interstate Commerce Commission can not correct 
these evils. He believed Government ownership the 
only solution. 

The first speaker on the negative for Mount Olive 
was Miss Gladys Andrews. She outlined her argu- 
ment opposing Government ownership, declaring that 
the whole scheme is undemocratic and un-American; 
that Government ownership is unjust from a political 
standpoint ; that it is not the proper function of the 
Government; that private ownership is in accord 
with American principles, and that Government 
ownership would necessarily result in political cor- 

Roy Francis completed the affirmative argument. 
He insisted that Government ownership and opera- 
tion is practicable. He pointed out its success where 
it had been tried and made clear how it would be 
operated for the interest of all the people. He at- 
tributed Germany's efficiency to its government 
owned railways. 

The last speaker for Mount Olive on the negative 
was Miss Emma Lindsay. After reviewing the 
points made by her colleague she argued that Gov- 
ernment ownership was a most unwise policy from a 
business standpoint. The experience that foreign 
nations have had with it does not warrant its adoption 
here, she declared. 

The rejoinders on both sides were spirited and 
forceful. The rejoinders, as well as the main 
speeches, showed that the debaters had a mastery of 
the subject and were speakers of composure. 

The decision of the judges, Messrs. H. H. Wil- 
liams, L. P. McGehee, Edwin Greenlaw, H. M. 
Wagstaff and W. S. Bernard, stood 3 to 2 in favor of 
the affirmative. 

Mr. R. O. Everett presented the Aycock Cup to 
the winning team in a fitting speech. He spoke of 
the value of the Debating Union both to the indi- 
vidual debaters and to the State as a whole. He 
stated that the plaudits which went to the winners of 
the cup were sufficient reward for those who did not 
win it. Dean Noble, in happy fashion, presented the 
c\ips and medals to winners in the inter-scholastic 
track meet. Immediately after the debate a recep- 
tion was tendered all visitors in the Library. This 




was the closing exercise in the program of entertain- 

Community Co-operation 

In carrying through to a successful conclusion 
the final contest praise should he given to the spirit 
of co-operation found everywhere. The homes of 
Chapel Hill entertained the 150 girls and ladies who 
came for the debate, members of the faculty acted as 
judges in the preliminaries and in the final debate, 
and students acted as officers in the preliminaries. 
They entertained the men and boys in the dormi- 
tories and co-operated heartily in giving the visitors 
a good time. The teachers and a number of students 
of the Chapel Hill graded school gave valuable help 
in serving at the reception and in decorating the 
stage of Memorial Hall. The Swain Hall manage- 
ment contributed in very satisfactory fashion the 
bill of fare at the reception. The baseball manage- 
ment provided complimentary tickets for the game 
between the Carolina Eeserves and the Raleigh 
Highs. The Y. M. C. A. gave its building and the 
time and efforts of its officers to the Debating Union. 

Success of the Debating Union 

Since its organization in 1913, the High School 
Debating Union has met with a remarkable success 

and growth. 

It has grown and has carried with it 

beneficial results for the individual debater, his

Annual Game Between Virginia and Carolina at Greensboro Won by Tar Heels 3 to 2— 

Review of Season 

On Monday, April 24, Carolina finished up a suc- 
cessful baseball season in a rather bad manner, losing 
to Georgia 10 to 1 in a poor exhibition of base ball. 
Some figures worked up by the Tar II eel show that 
the Varsity did better this year than they have done 
in the past four years, and in spite of slumps played 
consistent base hall. The batting average is quoted 
below, together with the pitchers' records. The num- 
erals in parenthesis indicate the number of games in 
which the players participated :

Barnes has more home runs to his credit than any 
other man. In fact no one else is in his class, in 
spite of the inviting nearness of the left field fence. 

A brief review of the season shows the details of 
the Varsity's edge on its opponents in runs. The 
opening game with Bingham was won by a close 
margin and bore the deserving name of a ball game. 
We treated Haverford and West Virginia Wesleyan 
worse, both contests being swatfests for the local 
boys, Barnes, Bennett, and Weeks each ringing up 
a home run. The next game with Davidson opened 
the contest for the State championship, and the White 
and Blue got off to a running start, trimming the 
Presbyterians 8 to 4. We were put back a notch 
the next game, however, when Wake Forest took a 
ten-frame classic from Coach Heam's men fi to 5. 
The tie was broken when Duncan scored from third 
on ( 'ox's sacrifice flv. 

Northern Trip 

On the trip up through Virginia, Powell's benders 
were scarcely touched by the Washington and Lee 
willows, and Carolina batted Pierroti's delivery for 
eight hits and two runs. The Virginians were let 
down with three safe bingles. 

On their return home, the Tar Heels found Yale 
waiting. The game was prevented from going into 
extra innings by Munson, who drove one of Cole- 
man's straight ones over the fence, scoring himself 
and one of his teammates. The Elis had to shed 
their coats to win, and the game was pronounced to 
be one of the best of the season. 

The following day found Wofford on the scene. 
The boys from the Palmetto State suffered a shutout 
at our hands, while we piled up three runs in a 
rather sleepy game, Barnes' home run being the clos- 
est thing to a feature. 

Virginia Defeated 3 — 2 

Owing to the rather sinister appearance of nation- 
al affairs, only one game was played with Virginia. 
On the Sa turday of Junior Week, Powell went on the 
mi mnd for Carolina at Greensboro, and for eight inn- 
ings had the Orange and Blue guessing. He was 
taken out in the ninth to allow a pinch hitter to wield 
the willow. The Virginians had a one run lead on 
us at the beginning of the ninth, but the score was 
tied in that inning when Stewart doubled and was 
sent across the plate when Younce, batting for Herty, 
smashed a single into center field. In the tenth Jen- 
nette doubled, his fourth hit of the day, and came 
home on Coleman's steamer to center. Coleman 
finished the game on the mound, and technically the 
victory belongs to him, but there is honor enough for 

Southern Trip 

From Greensboro our warrior band went on down 
south to take the measure of some of our neighbors. 
We took a fast game from Davidson, 1 to 0, Cole- 
man and Lawson opposing each other in a game 
characterized by neat fielding and little hitting. 

At Spartanburg we were entertained by Wofford, 
whom we trimmed to the tune of 6 to 1. The same 



pitchers who worked on Emerson Field, Kinlaw and 
Lawton. faced each other again, and the same man 

At Atlanta we were treated badly by the Crackers 
who took one game from Llewellyn 8 to 2, and the 
second from Powell, 4 to 2. In neither could the 
Tar Heels find Parks or Westbrook for enough hits 
to win, and the home team had everything their own 

On our way back we stopped at Columbia long 
enough to take a very one-sided contest from South 
Carolina. Coleman and Folger had a picnic with 
the stick, while almost every Tar Heel got at least 
two hits. One ball Folger knocked over the fence 
never has been found. 

The last two games of the season were played with 

Georgia, We took the first, Powell pitching, 5 to 0, 
completely outclassing the visitors. The changeable- 
ness of baseball was shown the next day, however, 
when we lost the worst played game of the year 
10 to 1. 


The well and favorably known ''Wop" Bennett 
has been elected to pilot the Carolina nine for 1917- 
18. Bennett is one of the best catchers in college 
basehall and a glance at his healthy average speaks 
convincingly of his success with the stick. "Wop" 
is a sure, steady player who suffers no slumps. He's 
right there in the pinches and on his toes from the 
time he first buckles his shin guards until the last 
ball whizzes over in the ninth. — Tar Heel. 


The class of 1902 which holds its third reunion at 
the approaching commencement is planning to cele- 
brate the fifteenth anniversary of its graduation in 
fitting stylo. This reunion is scheduled to begin on 
Monday evening. June 4th, and each member is urged 
to be on the "Hill" at that time. The committee 
which is making arrangements for the reunion fur- 
nishes the Review with the following information of 
much interest to all members of the class:

rangements have been made to take care of the class, 
during its stay at Chapel Hill, at the old South

The reunion committee of the class of 1897 lias 
issued through A. T. Allen, chairman, of Salisbury, 

a letter to all members of the class with reference to 
the big 20-year reunion which this class will hold at 
the approaching commencement. This letter fol- 

To the Fellow Members of the Class of 1897: 

We, the undersigned, have been appointed by the 
Central Alumni Committee at Chapel Hill for the 
purpose of preparing for the reunion of the class of 
1897, its twentieth anniversary. 

This reunion is to be held at Chapel Hill on June 
5th and after considerable correspondence we have 
come to the conclusion to undertake the three fol- 
lowing things : 

Fikst : During the twenty minutes which we have 
at our disposal in Gerrard Hall on June 5th, to ask 
D. B. Smith to speak for ten minutes; some of the 
others to make short talks ; and for some one to read 
a short account of our fellow members who have 
passed away. Nobody, who has anything to say, will 
be denied the privilege, save as the time at our dis- 
posal denies him. 

Second: Following the example set by a num- 
ber of classes we thought it wise to try to make as 
large a contribution as possible to the Alumni Loy- 
alty Fund. Every member of the class is strongly 
urged to contribute a small amount or any amount 
that he may feel disposed to give to this fund before 
the 5th of June. Mr. E. R. Rankin at Chapel Hill 
will receive this contribution and credit it to our class 
or, if you prefer, any member of this committee will 
receive the funds and forward them to Chapel Hill. 
Would it not be possible for us to add five hundred 
($500) or a thousand dollars ($1,000) to this fund? 

Third: We are planning to hold a supper or a 
smoker on the evening of June 5th at some hotel in 
Chapel Hill and at this meeting everybody will have 
a chance to dispense with his pent eloquence. 

Please write to some member of the committee and 
notify him whether you can attend or whether you 
w T ill join with us in contributing to this Alumni 

Come to Chapel Hill and let us celebrate old times 

for a day ! 


The fifth annual inter-scholastic track meet of 
North Carolina was held on Emerson Field April 
20th as a part of the program of High School Week. 
Nine schools were represented with a total of 47 
athletes participating, as follows: Belmont, Friend- 
ship, Hillsboro, Huntersville, Mineral Springs, Row- 
land, Tarboro, Winecoff and Chapel Hill. 

The Friendship high school, of Alamance County, 
scored 40 points and won the meet for the fourth 
successive time. It received the award of the trophy 
cup. The points scored by other teams were: Hills- 
boro 29 j Chapel Hill 16; Huntersville 9; Rowland 
<> ; Tarboro 5 ; Belmont 4. The Friendship relay 
team won the relay race and received the award of 
a special cup on this account. All winners of first 
places in the meet received silver medals and all 
winners of second places received bronze medals. 

Two State records were broken, the hammer throw 
by Garland Islew of Friendship, and the pole vault 
by Max Browning of Hillsboro. 


The second annual inter-scholastic tennis tourna- 
ment of North Carolina was held at the University 
on April 19th, 20th, and 21st. The Wilmington 
high school, represented by Morgan Fenley, was 
victorious in the singles. Oak Ridge Institute rep- 
resented by Messrs. Smith and Clark, was victorious 
in the doubles. Cups will be awarded Wilmington 
and Oak Ridge to commemorate their championship 
honors. Ten schools were represented in the tourna- 
ment as follows: Oak Ridge, Wilmington, Fremont, 
Normal, Greensboro, Raleigh. Warrenton, Asheville, 
Mooresville, and Cleveland. 


More than 350 delegates to the convention of the 
North Carolina Federation of Women's Clubs were 
the guests of the University, Thursday, May 3rd, 
the official May Day for Chapel Hill. Following a 
business session in Durham, where the convention 
was in session May 1-4, the ladies were given an 
automobile ride to the University by their hostesses 
of Durham. 

Arriving at Chapel Hill shortly before 1 o'clock 
the ladies went to Gerrard Hall, where they were 
welcomed by President Graham. Mrs. H. W. Chase, 
president of the Chapel Hill Community Club, also 
extended a welcome to the visitors. 

At 2 :30 the ladies were given a luncheon at Swain 
Hall, and afterwards attended the May Fete in Bat- 
tle's Park. 

On Emerson Field, May 12th, the Cherrwille 
high school baseball team won the State champion- 
ship of North Carolina , defeating Raleigh high 
school, eastern champions, by the score of 1 to 0. The 
Cherrwille team had previously defeated Charlotte, 
Gastonia, and East Bend, thereby winning the west- 
ern championship.

Despite the fact that it appears at a time when all 
men's minds are occupied by thoughts of the crisis 
that confronts America, the April issue of Studies in 
Philology is attracting wide attention among schol- 
ars 1 >ecause of its unique character and the high qual- 
ity of the material which it contains. One well- 
known scholar has written that in his opinion it is 
the greatest number that has ever appeared in an 
American university series. Other illustrations 
might be given to show that the high expectations 
aroused by the preliminary announcements are thor- 
oughly substantiated now that the completed book 
is in our hands. What is more to the point is the 
fact that the attractive little circular sent out by the 
editor a few weeks ago has already borne fruit in the 
shape of a considerable amount of money, so that up 
to the present writing about one-third of the total 
cost of this issue has been met by voluntary contri- 
butions by men not in any way connected with the 
University. More money will certainly be received 
from these sources within the next few weeks, ami it 
is also hoped that Carolina men, recognizing the 
great value of this work as a means of increasing 
the prestige of the University throughout the world 
of scholarship, will see the necessity of still further re- 
lieving the pressure upon the limited resources of 
the journal. 

This is not the place for an extended review of 
the contents of this volume of nearly two hundred 
pages, hut some idea of the book can be given in a 
few words. In his Foreword, the editor, Professor 
Greenlaw, calls attention to the fact that these ten 

essays, dealing with a single great period in English 
thought and letters, form a concrete example of col- 
laborative scholarship which gives "a totality of ef- 
fect that would have been impossible had they ap- 
peared in a number of periodicals scattered through 
a dozen months." He cites as illustration of the 
principle that inspired the genesis and the working- 
out of the volume, the results gained by collaboration 
in the fields of science, history, and medical research. 
The point of view is well stated in his concluding 
paragraph : 

''That radical changes in American education are 
at hand is beyond question. To think that the issue 
lies between compulsory Greek and compulsory vo- 
cational training is to start another profitless con- 
troversy between the Ancients and the Moderns and 
to fall into the blindest of errors. But that advanced 
scholarship, in whatever field, must emerge from its 
isolation and through both individual and co-opera- 
tive effort contribute not alone to learned journals 
for initiates in the mystery but also to the life of 
our common humanity is as certain as that America 
must prepare to take her part in world affairs. In the 
new age now dawning in America, impulses that en- 
riched the renaissance may once more become active. 
To foster such impulses is a duty of scholarship now 
as it was in the humanistic revival of the fifteenth 
and sixteenth centuries." 

Thus, the volume is unique not only in the fact 
that never before in the history of American phi- 
lological scholarship has a single issvie of a learned 
journal contained contributions from so many schol- 
ars of the highest distinction in a special field hut 
also in its illustration of an idea of collaboration in 
this field of research that is capable of further and 
even more fruitful development. The first part of 
the book is devoted to the Elizabethan Drama. Mr. 
W. J. Lawrence, of Dublin, who is widely known for 
his studies of the Elizabethan theatre, makes his first 
American contribution in an interesting article about 
a young Irishman who came to London when Shakes- 
peare, Jonson, Beaumont and Fletcher were at the 
height of their powers, and wrote a lively comedy of 
manners which held the stage for a generation. Pro 
fessor Adams, of Cornell, contributes a paper on the 
famous Blackfriars, with three illustrations, and 
Professor Graves, of Trinity, makes further contri- 
hutions to our knowledge of the presentation of plays 
in the Elizabethan period. This section of the vol- 
ume is completed by a paper on Hamlet by Profes- 
sor Tucker Brooke, of Yale, and by one on Shakes- 
peare's methods of composition by Professor Manly, 
the distinguished head of the department of English 
at the University of Chicago. 



The second section of the volume is devoted to es- 
says on English poetry from Spenser to Milton, this 
series being introduced by a lengthy and informing 
study of certain aspects of Elizabethan poetic style 
by Professor Alden of Leland Stanford. Professor 
Aldcn has recently published a monumental edition 
ot Shakespeare's Sonnets, and the present essay is in 
a sense a by-product of his work in preparation of 
that volume. Professor Fletcher, of Columbia, wide- 
ly known for his work on Spenser and on Dante, has a 
charming Spenser essay on "The Painter of Poets," 
which even non-specialists may read with pleasure. 
Professor Osgood, of Princeton, editor of the Con- 
cordance to Spenser, recently published by the Car- 
negie Institution, has an essay on Spenser's indebted- 
ness to Biblical literature of wisdom which opens up 
a new source of renaissance thought. Our own Uni- 
versity is represented by Professor Hanford's inter- 
esting study of the dramatic element in Paradise 
Lost and by Professor Greenlaw's study of Milton's 
philosophical idealism, a paper which will increase 
his wide reputation as an Elizabethan scholar. At 
the end of the volume is a valuable bibliography, 
classified and with annotations, of recent literature 
dealing with this field, about one hundred books and 
monographs being included in this record of a year's 

The book about birds, which we have all been in 
search of for years, at last conies from the press of a 
firm principally manned by North Carolinians and 
from the pen of a North Carolinian. This is "The 
Bird Study Book," by T. Gilbert Pearson (1899), 
Secretary of the National Association of Audubon 
Societies. Mr. Pearson has done extraordinarily ef- 
fective work, and today is virtual head of the Audu- 
bon societies in the United States. A prolific writer, 
with a deep interest in his subject, he accomplishes 
a great deal through the magazine articles, frequently 
happily illustrated, which appear in such magazines 
as The Craftsman, Country Life in America,, and The 
Art World. The present volume (Doubleday, Page 
& Co., New York, 1917), some two hundred and 
fifty pages long, is excellently and fully illustrated 
with drawings, photographs, and a colored frontis- 
piece. Mr. Pearson is a close observer of the life of 
birds in their haunts, and has studied them in all 
parts of the United States and contiguous territory. 
The chapter headings are indicative of this personal 
interest: "First Acquaintance with the Birds," 
"The Life About the Nest," "Domestic Life of the 
Birds," "The Migration of Birds," "The Birds in 
Winter," "The Economic Value of Birds," "Civiliza- 

tion's Effect on the Bird Supply," "The Traffic in 
Feathers," "Bird Protection Laws and Their En- 
forcement — How Laws are Made," "Bird Reserva- 
tions," "Making Bird Sanctuaries," and "Teaching 
Bird Study." This interesting and long-needed 
book, as stated by the author, "has been written for 
the consideration of that ever-increasing class of 
Americans who are interested in acquiring a greater 
familiarity with the habits and activities of wild

Dear Sir: 

I am sorry to be so late with this fee but you know Y. 
M. C. A. Secretaries don't have a great deal of money especial- 
ly when they live close to a city like Denver. 

I have really enjoyed the Review a great deal this year 
and am delighted to watch the progress of Carolina. But I 
am a little jealous of that Virginia victory even though I'm 
overjoyed to know that we beat them. 

Awaiting your arrival on the frontier of the Somme, I am, 
Yours very truly,

New York Life Insurance 

Money for Education 

Many young men and women secure money for 
their education through life insurance. President 
Garfield was a notable example. All through his 
conspicuous career he paid frequent and high tribute 
to the New York Life Policy on which he borrowed 
money that put him through college and started him 
on the road to success. New York Life policies in 
addition to the usual provisions, provide free insur- 
ance and a life income in advent of disability by 
accident or disease; double indemnity for fatal travel 

Women written on the same basis as men with 
same disability benefits. For particulars and rates

"If only it was not so hot," sighed the pretty girl as she tried to manipu- 
late her handkerchief so as to absorb the perspiration without rubbing the 
powder off her nose. '"If only it was not so hot the dancing would be lovely. 
But I feel like a rag and look like a beet." 

"You look — you look/' hesitated the youth, trying to summon courage 
and poetic fancy at the same time, "like a dewy rose to me." Then embarrassed 
at his gallant attempt, he hurried on wdth: "But I'll soon make you feel as 
fresh and sweet as you look, for that big punch bowl is full of the finest drink 
you ever tasted." 

"My, you certainly think a lot of it,'" said the girl rather condescendingly. 
"Are you sure it's all right for me to drink '. What is the name of this wonder- 
ful elixir?" 

"Of course it's all right for you to drink it. Mother gives it to the children 
to keep them well during this warm weather, and they served it at the church 
social the other night; but I shall not tell you the name, not until after you 
have tasted it." 

"Well, what do you think of it ?" the young man asked a couple of minutes 


"It's wonderful ! It tastes so good, and I'm beginning to feel like dancing 
all night. Please tell me the name of it right away, please, and I'll give you the 
next dance." 

"That's a bargain. It's Pepsi-Cola, the heat killer!"
