To Our Policyholders: 

If you are insured under a New England Mutual policy issued prior to April 6, 1917, 
you are privileged to engage in military or naval service of the United States, on land or sea, 
in any part of the world, without the payment of an extra premium. Any conditions in the 
contract to the contrary have been waived by the Company. 

If you are not fully insured, now is an opportune time to increase your protection. You 
may secure a more liberal contract now than you can get later — if the United States becomes 
seriously involved in active warfare in Europe. Now, as never before, you need life insur- 
ance for the protection of home and business. 

Today — as always — delays are dangerous. There is satisfaction in security. We want 
to tell you about the superior service we have to offer. See us or write us uow.

Last month The Review announced the opening 

of alumni headquarters for American college men in 

Paris through the American Uni- 

I H N E PARI U S ARTERS ^rsity Union in Europe. So far, 
the University has perfected no 
special bureau in the Union, but it is seeing to it 
that the general Union is putting its facilities at the 
service of Carolina men who happen to be in Paris. 
Copies of The Review and other University publi- 
cations have been sent forward, and every possible 
effort will be made to keep the University and her 
sons in close touch. 

As previously announced, headquarters of the 
Union are located in the Royal Palace Hotel, Place 
du Theatre Francais, Paris, and several American 
University men are there as secretaries and managers 
of the Union. 


The interest of Carolina men, everywhere, was at- 
tracted by the public discussion recently devoted to 

the incidents arising from the 
THE S. S. McCLURE . ., , i . 

LECTURE INCIDENT ^°™<™t that a lecture on 

lhe European situation 
would be delivered here on November 22 by Mr. S. 
S. McClure. At the instance of the Governor of 
North Carolina, ex-officio President of the Board of 
Trustees, and his advisers, who believed that this lec- 
ture would not be in harmony with the present state 
of popular feeling in regard to the war, the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina cancelled the lecture engage- 
ment. The cancellation was made with the under- 
standing that no publicity was to be given to it, and 
to save any possible and unnecessary controversy that 
might cause embarrassment to either Mr. McClure 
or the University. The University Lecture Commit- 
tee entertained no doubt of the thoroughly loyal and 
patriotic character of Mr. McClure's lecture; and 
Mr. McClure in person fully explained the points at 
issue to the satisfaction of the Governor and his 
advisers. In the discussion in regard to the exped- 
iency and wisdom of having Mr. McClure lecture 
here, the University took no part whatever. Mr. 
McClure delivered his lecture here, as originally 
announced, on November 22. The following edi- 
torial from the Greensboro Daily News gives the 
proper perspective: 


It is to be expected that in the excitements of war- 
time people should often see things with a false per- 
spective and through zeal of patriotism take steps 
that would not be pursued in more care-free times. 
But in our eagerness to root out sedition and pacific- 
ism, we are almost sure at times to do injustice to 
individuals In the light of the explanation made by 
S. S. McClure concerning his attitude toward the 
war and the speech he was to have delivered last 
week at the University of North Carolina, it is cer- 
tain that he was done an injustice. His speech in 
Raleigh Tuesday night convinces once for all of his 
loyalty and desire to see the war fought to a finish. 
Mr. McClure has two sons in the war, and through 
the press and from the platform has helped to inform 
people of what the conflict means. 


At the recent meeting of the North Carolina Liter- 
ary and Historical Association, Dr. James Sprunt, 
Trustee of the University and founder 
of the James Sprunt Historical P^lbli■ 
cations, was elected president for the 
coming year. This selection is in every way fitting 
•and worthy. Full of love for his State, for history 
and literature, Dr. Sprunt has, in spite of the de- 
mands upon his time by a business with world-wide 
ramifications, made himself the chronicler of his be- 
loved Lower Cape Fear and has generously devoted 
much of his thought, time, and means to the marking 
ind proper care of historic spots and to the stimula- 
tion of interest in State history. The Review ex- 
tends to the Literary and Historical Association and 
to Dr. Sprunt its hearty congratulations. 


The two paragraphs appearing below are self ex- 
planatory. They are copied here merely to keep his- 
LOOKING t0IV strai S nt - Read them. 
AHEAD ^ e cann °t resist the feeling that, un- 

der all the circumstances, the bond is- 
sue was a philanthropic, political, and educational 
blunder. We are certain that its advocates erred 
in not taking the public into their confidence be- 
fore thrusting the bond issue upon our statute 
books. We anticipate that there will be no little 
feeling on the matter all over the State and we 
should not be surprised if the next Legislature, 
under pressure of public sentiment, should rescind 



the order for the issuance of these bonds after 1918. 
In this event, only a million dollars having been is- 
sued and expended by that time, the remaining two 
million dollars may be withheld. We shall see what 
we shall see. — Biblical Recorder, March, 1917. 

If our people are really opposed to any such folly 
as the three million dollar bond issue for our State 
institutions, the time to forestall it is in the pri- 
maries. If a candidate were persuaded that he could 
not get a Baptist vote on such a platform he would 
change his tune without notice. And here is one 
sovereign citizen who does not propose to cast his 
ballot for that kind of a candidate. It is too late to 
remedy the evil when the candidates are elected and 
a partisan speaker has named the committee. — Char- 
ily and Children, December 6th, 1917. 


In accord with the request for suggestions con- 
cerning the proper utilization of the Bingham be- 
quest, two alumni, whose letters are to 



be found elsewhere in this issue, urge 
larger salaries for the University pro- 
fessors and the establishment of a department or 
school of music. 

The suggestion as to the increase in salaries is not 
urged on the basis of the present high cost of living, 
however burdensome that may be, but rather on the 
ground that the institution should be placed, so far 
as its salary scale is concerned, on a parity with 
others doing a similar high grade of work. 

□ □□ 

A college of "liberal arts" which makes no provi- 
sion whatever for music, is decidedly an anomaly to 

the second alumnus — and rightly so. 
MUSIC A T . .■ , , , 

DESIDERATUM Jhe time may not have come yet 
tor the establishment of a school oi 
music or even a department of music at Carolina, 
but there is abundant reason for thinking the ques- 
tion through. 

The Review has not thought the matter through, 
but there is a step which it thinks might be taken at 
an early date in this direction. The University has 
an orchestra, a glee club, a band, a minstrel show, 
not to mention chapel singing and the direction of 
the musical activities of the Summer School. All of 
this combined under an effective leader, with pro- 
vision made in the local churches for Sunday after- 
noon organ recitals, etc., would add tremendously to 
the life of the student body — and would keep the di- 
rector busy. The larger question of a real school of 
music which would draw both men and women from 
the State and South, is another matter, but the one 
mentioned would be a step in that direction, and is 
very practical. 


December 19th, marked the 86th birthday of Ex- 
President K. P. Battle. The occasion was fittingly 
remembered by the student body and 
friends in the village and throughout 
the State and Nation. The Review 
joins his hosts of friends in wishing him many happy 
returns of the day. 

□ □□ 

The Review has three words for the Alumni at 
this special time. The first is, to read carefully the 
articles found on other pages en- 
titled, A Program of Extension 
Service for a Time of War, and 
organize local associations. The University needs 
every alumnus informed as to the nature of the ser- 
vice it is attempting to render the State and to have 
his active support. 

This second word is, to put the resources of the 
local alumni association definitely behind the work 
of the North Carolina Club as set forth in the second 
article by A. M. Coates. There is no work in which 
Carolina men can assist the University more than 
in this. 

And the third, to every son and daughter of Caro- 
lina whose heart thrills at the mention of her name — 
whether at home, in camp, or across the seas — is 
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !

Within one week from the mailing of this number 

of The Review, the year 1917 will end. In order

Keview reminds you to send in 
your check at once. In this way better than almost 
any other, you can directly help forward the work 
which Carolina is doing. Send it now. The follow- 
ing letter from an alumnus has the right spirit: 

I am handing you herewith my check for $5 for 
the Alumni Loyalty Fund. I wish it were possible 
for me to have made it fifty this Christmas, but we 
have to divide our contributions with army relief 


Arnold A. McKay, of Maxton, of the class of 
1913, has received appointment as United States 
Consul at Valparaiso, Chile. He sailed from New 
York during the early part of December and will 
go by way of the east coast to Buenos Aires and 
thence across the Andes to Valparaiso. Mr. McKay 
was formerly a member of the faculty of the Staun- 
ton Military Institute, Staunton, Va. He passed 
the consular examination during the past summer. 



The Bureau of Extension Outlines Work to be Done Through Study Centers, Lectures, 
Correspondence Courses, and Other Means 

Following up the preliminary announcement of 
its special War Service, the Bureau of Extension has 
issued in Extension Leaflet No. 3 complete details 
of the plan through which the University is to at- 
tempt to make clear the aims and purposes of Ameri- 
ca in the world war. 

Courses for Study Centers 

According to the completed plan, instruction will 
be given in study centers upon the following subjects: 

1. Theories of the State, by Professor Pierson; 2. 
Political Idealism in British and American Litera- 
ture, by Professor Greenlaw; 3. Europe Since 1815, 
by Professor Wagstaff; 4. American Diplomacy, by 
Professor Hamilton ; 5. Economic Aspects of the 
War, by Professor Raper; 6. The Influence of the 
War on Contemporary Thought, by Professors Pier- 
son and Hanford ; 7. Scientific Aspects of the War, 
by Professors Daggett, Bell, and Wheeler; 8. Fac- 
tors in Social Control as Exemplified in National 
Systems of Education, by Professors Chase and L. 
A. Williams. 

Each of these courses is to be studied for a period 
of a month or more, the studies being based on a 
special syllabus, with the professor present with 
the study group for three days at the beginning of 
the period and two at the end. In the interim the 
groups will meet under a local instructor, and at the 
end of the course a regular examination will be given. 
If it is satisfactorily passed University credit to- 
wards a degree will be given. 

Related Lectures Offered 

Where groups cannot be formed for intensive 
study, but there is a desire for directed reading and 
suggestion, from four to six lectures on related sub- 
jects by one or more professors are provided. A 
syllabus is offered for this work also, but University 
credit is not given upon the completion of the lectures. 
The subjects offered upon this basis follow: 1. The 
Theories of the State, (4 lectures, e. g., 1. Origin 
and Forms of the State, 2. What is the State? 
3. The Political Theory of Germany, 4. Democ- 
racy and Political Science), by Professor Pierson; 

2. Political Idealism in British and American Liter- 
ature, (6 lectures), by Professors Greenlaw and Han- 
ford; 3. Europe Since 1815, (6 lectures), by Pro- 
fessor Wagstaff; 4. American Diplomacy, (4 lec- 
tures), by Professor Hamilton; 5. Economic As- 
pects of the War, (6 lectures), by Professor Paper; 

6. The Influence of the War on Contemporary 
Thought, (6 lectures), by Professors Pierson and 
Hanford; 7. Latin-American Eelations, (G lectures), 
by Professor Pierson; 8. The Near and Far East, 
(6 lectures), by Professor Pierson; 9. Russia, (5 
lectures), by Professors Pierson and Greenlaw; 10. 
The Influence of Public Education on Political 
Ideals, (4 lectures), by Professor L. A. Williams; 
11. Democracy in American Poetry, (4 lectures), 
by Professor Foerster; 12. England Democratizing 
Under Victoria : A Champion of Democracy Groom- 
ing for the World War, (4 lectures), by Professor 
Booker; 13. Scientific Aspects of the War, (4 lec- 
tures), by Professors Wheeler and Bell. 

Courses by Correspondence 

In the event that individuals wish to pursue these 
studies by correspondence, they can select from the 
following and upon completion of the work and a 
satisfactory examination, receive credit towards a 
degree: 1. The Theories of the State, 2. Political 
Idealism in British and American Literature, 3. 
Europe Since 1815, 4. American Diplomacy, 5. 
Economic Aspects of the War, 6. The Influence of 
the War on Contemporary Thought, 7. Factors in 
Social Control as Exemplified in National Systems 
of Education. 

The following courses do not carry credit towards 
a degree: 8. Latin American Relations, 9. The Near 
and Far East, 10. The Influence of Public Education 
on Political Ideals.

Package Library Service 

To supplement the study and lecture service, the 
Bureau is preparing package libraries for general 
loaning and is issuing special war leaflets and dis- 
tributing material prepared by the Committee on 
Public Information at Washington. Leaflets in this 
series (in which President Graham's recent address 
at the Teacher's Assembly is to be issued) have al- 
ready appeared as follows: 1. War Information Ser- 
vice, 2. The Lafayette Association, 3. Program of 
Extension Service for a Time of War, 4. Why We 
are at War With Germany-I, 5. Single Lectures on 
the War, 6. Why We Are at War with Germany-II. 

Carrying out the same idea, the Neivs Letter has 
issued the following War Specials: Why We Fight 
Germany (Oct. 31), University War Work (Nov. 
7), Save Waste and Win the War (Nov. 14), God 
Save Our Men (Nov. 21), Thanks offerings Dny 
(Nov. 28), The Spirit of France (Dec. 5), North 
Carolina Club Studies (Dec. 12). 

The Lafayette Association, concerning which ex- 
tended notices have appeared in the press, carries the 
general idea out still further to the local club, school, 
or any organization which wishes to become familiar 
with American ideals. 

Copies of any or all of these publications can be 
had upon application to the Bureau and should find 
their way into the hands of many of the alumni. 


December Twenty-eighth Has Been Set as the Date for Forming New Associations 

and Holding Mid-year Meetings 

Friday evening, December 28, 1917, is the date 
set by the President of the General Alumni Associa- 
tion of the University for the organization of active 
alumni associations in every county in the State. 

There are now about forty alumni associations in 
the State; but only a very few of them are active, 
and none of them have a regular time for meeting, 
or a plan of organization, or a definite work to do. 
The most that any association has done has been to 
gather once or twice each year about the banquet 
board and renew old associations. The University 
has asked no more than this. And this is a fine thing 
in itself. There is a great pleasure to be derived 

from renewing the ties that bind college mates and 
University men together. The alumnus who misses 
this loses something altogether worth while, and some- 
thing which he could have with only a minimum of 
exertion on his part. 

The University is now entering upon the one hun- 
dred and twenty-fourth year of her history. She has 
won the reputation of "the oldest and the youngest 
of state universities." Her unselfish devotion to 
the interests of the State and nation, and the direct 
service she is rendering to the people of North Caro- 
lina, have won for her an affectionate support at home 
and an enviable recognition in the nation at large. 



To keep in touch with such a vital, growing force 
will not only be a pleasure but a real benefit to 
every alumnus. 

And not only can the alumni of the University ill 
afford to miss the pleasure and the profit to be de- 
rived from a close personal touch with such a power- 
ful force in the advancement and uplift of the State ; 
but the University can ill afford to do without their 
co-operation. Every alumnus is necessary in the 
scheme of service she has planned and purposes to 
achieve. Before the full possibilities of her exten- 
sion service can be realized, before her resources can 
be placed unreservedly at the disposal of the people, 
the co-operation of every alumnus is essential. 

The alumni can best avail themselves of the bene- 
fits the University offers, and render the most effec- 
tive service to the University only through forming 
and maintaining active organizations. And because 
the University especially needs this practical co- 
operation in the days that are ahead she urges that 
the alumni in each county get together on the above 
mentioned date and organize into effective units. 

Each county association should plan for regular 
meetings at least once or twice each year, according 
to local needs. 

Each one should undertake at once to get an accu- 
rate list of all the University alumni in the county, 
catalogued according to the time spent at the Uni- 
versity, the course taken, and the present occupation. 
A copy of this list should be sent to the University, 
and she should be notified of any revision. The 
University will keep the local associations notified 

of the men from their county who have registered 
for work here. 

These things are necessary to the maintenance of 
efficient organizations. There are a number of ways 
in which these organizations may co-operate. The 
North Carolina Club, working upon problems of im- 
mediate and vital concern in North Carolina, needs 
the hearty co-operation of a nucleus of men in every 
county to realize its full possibilities. This year it 
is engaged in an intensive study of county govern- 
ment and county affairs in North Carolina, and 
active alumni associations in each county could co- 
operate in a wonderfully effective way in furnishing 
information concerning local conditions, or in recom- 
mending men who could furnish it. The program of 
service in war time ; the establishment of University 
extension centres for the study of the war, its causes, 
aims, and problems attendant on it ; the organiza- 
tion of Lafayette Associations in every community; 
all this must be explained and interpreted before its 
full possibilities can be realized. 

This work, and much more, could be easily and 
effectively performed through county alumni asso- 
ciations. These associations would constitute Uni- 
versity centers in themselves. The University could 
work through them. They could each year keep up 
with her progress and growth, and acquaint their 
communities with the opportunities she offers. Thus 
they could keep alive the spirit of service which actu- 
ates the University, and which the University seeks 
to instill into the men she trains. — A. M. Coates. 


One Hundred and One Representatives of the Medical School Answer Their Country's Call 

From such records as The Review is able to con- 
sult, it finds that the Medical School of the Univer- 
sity has sent one hundred and one of its former stu- 
dents to date into some branch of the national ser- 
vice. The list appearing below is doubtless inaccu- 
rate and incomplete, but it is given with the double 
purpose of acquainting all the alumni with the activ- 
ities of the Medical School representatives and of 
securing further and accurate information concern- 
ing them.

it where it is in error, please do so.

From the Greensboro News of December 1, the 
following notice is taken concerning Rev. A. D. 
Betts, '55, upon whom the University conferred the 
degree of D. D. several years ago, and who has at- 
tended every meeting of the North Carolina Annual 
Conference since 1853: 

Rev. A. 1). Betts, or "Father" Betts as he is af- 
fectionately called and known throughout North Caro- 
lina Methodism, will leave here Tuesday morning 
for Greenville, N. C, to attend the annual session of 
the North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, South. He will be accompanied on the 
trip by Mrs. Betts. 

"Father" Betts enjoys the distinction of being 
the oldest member in point of years and service in 
the North Carolina Conference and probably the 
oldest in any other conference or religious body in 
the entire country. He was converted in the year 
1853 when he was a student at the University of 
North Carolina at Chapel Hill and attended his first 
conference in the fall of that year in Raleigh, Bishop 
Payne presiding. He also attended the conferences 
held at Pittsboro in 1854, Bishop Pierce presiding; 
at Wilmington in 1855, Bishop Andrew presiding, 
and in Greensboro in 1856, Bishop Early presiding. 

Mr. John W. Lasley, instructor in Mathematics, 
has recently been elected to membership in the Ameri- 
can Mathematical Society.

A capacity audience heard Mr. S. S. McClure lec- 
ture in Gerrard Hall on the evening of Thursday, 
November 22. The McClure of today is very differ- 
ent from the McClure who lectured here some seven 
years ago. At that time, he left the impression of 
superabundant dynamic energy and almost uncontroll- 
ed volubility. The McClure of today is quiet, controll- 
ed, almost cynically calm in utterance. His visit to 
fourteen countries, the things he saw at Verdun, 
along the Somme, in stricken Belgium, seem to have 
seared his soul. The lecture he gave, which was deep- 
ly interesting, consisted of an elaborate and extended 
array of documents, cemented together by elucidation 
and descriptive commentary of the author. Tn this 
sense, it was almost judicial in character; and in 

many respects resembled a proces verbal in judgment 
upon Germany's violations of the laws of nations and 
outrages of the laws of humanity. 

By analyzing the accessible documents, the lecturer 
absolved England entirely of responsibility for precip- 
itating the great conflict. Furthermore, by an array 
of authenticated documents, diaries, official commu- 
niques, and army orders, which were familiar enough 
to close students of war literature, the lecture reveal- 
ed the deep depravity and inhuman mercilessness ex- 
hibited by Germany in the conduct of the war. Some- 
what verging upon the dramatic was his analysis of 
the terms of the Anglo-German agreement, well-nigh 
concluded in June, 1914, terms of which he discover- 
ed and published in his book, "Obstacles to Peace." 
These terms showed clearly the lengths Great Bri- 
tain had already gone prior to the opening of the war, 
to effect permanently stable relations with Germany. 
An impressive feature of the lecture was the pro- 
nouncement that the English and French of the next 
several generations will assuredly continue to regard 
the Germans with abhorrence and detestation. 

Mr. McClure's lecture bore out the prediction of 
Dr. Henderson, who introduced him, that in high 
patriotism and loyalty it would fully accord with the 
sentiments and views of the audience. The impres- 
sion created was profound — as ample justification of 
America's role, validation of the parts played by 
England and France, condemnation of Germany, and 
powerful stimulant to American endeavor. Mr. Mc- 
( !lure's lecture was impressive, and unadulteratedly 
patriotic, and serves as a powreful incentive to the 


* r* frntfri' c*.' i T* - mm .l yfra'JWH 




most vigorous prosecuton of the war to a successful 
conclusion by the United States. 


From the forthcoming report of the Registrar of 
the University are taken the following student statis- 
tics for the current year:

Samuel E. Shull, LL. B. 1900, of Stroudsburg, 
Pa., has been appointed by Governor Brumbaugh 
judge of the 43rd judicial district of Pennsylvania, 
composed of Monroe and Pike counties. Judge 
Shull has been engaged in the practice of law at 
Stroudsburg, his home city, since his graduation 
from the University Law School in 1900. He was 
an athlete in college days and was captain of the 
varsity football team. He has been a member of the 
law firm of Shull and Shull.

The Schools of Practice maintained by the Doher- 
ty Organization (Henry L. Doherty Company, 60 
Wall Street, New York City) for the specialized edu- 
cation of graduate engineers, arc widely known 
among all public utility men in the United States. 
Since the establishment of the first school at Denver, 
some twelve years ago, the system has been expanded 
until today sees schools at Denver, Toledo, Bartles- 
ville, Okla., and Titusville, Pa. At Denver the 
"cadets" as they are called, study the artificial gas 
and electric business. At Toledo they learn elec- 


tricity, particularly as regards power, and the mys- 
teries of traction operation. The Bartlesville curri- 
culum embraces a field study of natural gas and oil 
and at Titusville oil refining is learned. 

The system has become so large that the need of a 
supervisory b ad who could devote his entire time 
to the task was considered advisable^and the selection 
was finally made of Dr. Howard B. Shaw, former 
dean of the engineering school of the University of 
Missouri, and later the engineering member of the 
Missouri Public Utilities Commission. 

Dr. Shaw was born in Winslow, Me., in 1869. 
He was educated in the private schools at Tarboro, 

N. C, and was graduated from the University of 
North Carolina in 1889 with the degree of A. B. 
He received a B. C. E. from there in 1891, and an 
A. M. from Harvard in 1894. From 1889 to 1913 
he served as instructor, assistant professor, and pro- 
fessor in mathematics, surveying and drawing at the 
University of North Carolina, Harvard University, 
and the University of Missouri. At the latter uni- 
versity he was dean of the school of engineering and 
director of the engineering experiment station at 
the time of his appointment to the Missouri Public 
Service Commission in April, 1913. — Doherty News. 


The News and Observer of December 2nd carried 
the following announcement concerning Mr. S. P. 
Winters, formerly in charge of the press service of 
the University: 

Effective yesterday Mr. S. R. Winters became the 
manager of the Washington bureau of the Netvs and 
Observer. The bureau is located at 406 District Na- 
tional Bank Building where Tar Heels will always 
find a welcome. 

Mr. H. E. C. Bryant has been Washing-ton cor- 
respondent of the News and Observer for about two 
years and has estalished a high standard of service. 
He is held in high esteem in the News and Observer 
office. s 

The high qualty of the work that Mr. Bryant has 
done for the News and Observer will be maintained 
by Mr. Winters. While in charge of the Durham 
bureau of the News and Observer, Mr. Winters has 
established a record for industry and newspaper 
ability that is most enviable. He has the nose for 
news and the "pep" necessary for the continual 
grind which is the part of the daily newspaper 
writer. No man of his age has a better grasp on 
constructive developments in North Carolina affairs 
than Mr. Winters and his work in Washington will 
reflect the same energy and comprehension which 
characterized it at Durham. 


With no varsity football for the University this 
year, the freshmen eleven held the center of the stage, 
and (Mine through the season with a good record of 
games won. The Davidson scrubs were defeated 
6-2, Oak Ridge went down before a 45-0 score, the 
fast Bingham (Asheville) team lost with a score of 
14-6, and Charlotte highs were tied 13-13. The final 
game was played with the Virginia Freshmen in 
Petersburg, Va., on November 24. No score was 
made in the first half, but the game was finally lost 
to the Virginians 14-6. Scales, Fearrington, Lowe, 
Cochrane, and Shaw played well. 




Editor, Alumni Review : 

Dear Sir: — Referring to the request for sugges- 
tions which appeared in your October number in 
connection with the announcement of the magnifi- 
cent gift from Mrs. Robert Worth Bingham, it seems 
to me that what the University needs more than any- 
thing else is better pay for its faculty. If the exact 
disposition of the bequest has been left to the dis- 
cretion of the University authorities, all of it should 
be applied to increasing the pay of the teaching force 
of the present schools and departments. 

I wish an additional $75,000.00 a year were avail- 
able for the same purpose. 

In the language of President Graham, ''Mrs. Bing- 
ham saw that the strength of an educational institu- 
tion in rendering service of distinction depends abso- 
lutely on the strength of its faculty." If this is true 
and we may assume that the strength of the faculty 
depends more on the strength of its individual mem- 
bers than it does on their number, it is clear that the 
above plan will carry out most effectively the inten- 
tions of the will. 

Yours very truly, 

DeB. Whitaker, '93. 
Santiago de Cuba, November 19, 1917. 


Editor, Alumni Review: 

Dear Sir: — I was glad to read in the last issue 
of the gifts received by the University and of the 
large attendance. 

In response to the request for suggestions for the 
proper utilization of the Bingham bequest, I would 
suggest that something in a large way be done musi- 
cally for U. N. C. There ought to be a chair of 
music. I have often wondered how colleges came 
to be called liberal arts colleges when music was en- 
tirely omitted. I should like to see Carolina take 
the initial step in introducing music into Southern 
Universities. The need is great, the possibilities 
unlimited, and the results would be manifold. 
Sincerely yours, 

P. H. Errs. '15. 
Atlanta, Georgia. 


As announced earlier in the year, through the 
generosity of an alumnus, provision has been made 
for the cataloguing and upbuilding of the North 
Carolina collection of the University Library. This 
special work was started under way September 1st, 
through the appointment of Miss Mary L. Thornton, 

a graduate of the Carnegie Library Training School, 
of Atlanta, Georgia, and for several years Assistant 
Librarian at the University of Georgia, as cataloguer 
of the collection. Under her direction, the collec- 
tion has been gone over carefully, duplicates and 
lacunae have been noted, and a systematic effort is 
being made to build up the collection. 

This work is of such a nature as to enlist the in- 
terest of a great many alumni and North ( iarolinians. 
It is greatly desired by the University that anyone 
who can assist in the upbuilding of the collection shall 
feel free to do so, and that contributions of books, 
pamphlets, maps, manuscripts, etc., relating to the 
State, will be most gladly received. 


Dr. Francis P. Venable, head of the department of 
Chemistry, Lis recently been chosen as one of six 
distinguished chemists by Secretary of the Interior 
Lane to act as an advisory board to the United States 
Bureau of Mines. The great amount of war work 
being done by this bureau makes these appointments 
necessary. The membership of the Board is as fol- 
lows: Dr. Wm. H. Nichols, New York, Chairman; 
Dr. Win. Hoskins, Chicago ; Dr. E. C. Franklin, Le- 
land Stanford, California; Dr. C. L. Parsons, Wash- 
ington; Dr. H. P. Talbot, Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology; and Dr. F. P. Venable, University of 
Nortb Carolina. 


The Summer School News, Volume V, number 1, 
with general outline of the work to be carried out 
by the Summer School in 1918 came from the press 
on November 24. 

The 191 S session (the thirty-first), according to 
the announcement, will begin on June 11 and end 
July 25. Every detail of the work will be given 
careful consideration by the Director and his assis- 
tants, with a view to making the session the most 
successful in the School's history. 

If you wish to do the University a service, a very 
practical way is offered by writing to Director N. 
W. Walker for copies of the Neius to be distributed 
by you among the teachers in your community. 


Major Emory Graham Alexander, of the class of 
1902, is chief surgeon of Base Hospital No. 34, 
which was formed by the Episcopal Hospital of 
Philadelphia. He is now at Camp Mills, Hemp- 
stead, New York, with the Forty-first Division. He 
expects to sail for France at an early date. 




Alumni and citizens of North Carolina generally 
will be interested in the clippings from the press and 
excerpts from letters which appear below concerning 
the University's War Extension Service, a complete 
outline of which is to be found in the preceding pages 
of this issue. 

It seems to me that the pamphlet you enclosed 
(The Lafayette Association) contains a very fertile 
idea and a plan which may lead to very interesting 
and useful results, and I am very glad and very much 
interested that it should be attempted. — Woodrow 

May I express my great appreciation of the work 
done by the University of North Carolina in the 
direction of publicity and in the dissemination of 
information throughout the State on the great issues 
of the war. I have already told you how highly I 
regard your extension work. In a bulletin on this 
phase of the University's effort which the Bureau is 
just about to publish, I am asking that the substance 
of the leaflet on the new War Information Service be 
incorporated. — P. P. Claxton, Commissioner of 
the Bureau of Education. 

I have read the accompanying pamphlets with the 
greatest interest and with genuine admiration for 
their spirit and expression. I am in profound sym- 
pathy with the lofty purpose towards which the 
activities of the Lafayette Association are to be 
directed, and I look upon the plan proposed as a 
happy combination of idealism and practical wisdom. 

It seems to me absolutely vital that every means 
should be taken in the present emergency to bring 
home to the conscience of the people what is the in- 
heritance which we are defending against the spiri- 
tual and actual aggression of autocracy. With a 
clearer and more universal recognition of what it is 
that has been handed down to us by those who went 
before, there may be expected also to come that fuller 
appreciation which is needed of our duties and obli- 
gations as against the undue stressing of our rights 
and privileges. There should come greater spiritual 
unity than has prevailed here for many years, and 
a deepening and broadening of individual and nation- 
al life, and in the end, perhaps not too far off, that 
stimulation of soul and mind and achievement which 
may result in a renaissance period such as the world 
once had and for the return of which it has waited 
for centuries. — Otto Kaiin, of Kuhn, Loeb & Co. 

I thank you heartily for sending me copies of 
your most interesting bulletins which are unques- 

tionably doing important work in telling the people 
of North Carolina what America is fighting for. I 
am proud to have something of mine included, and 
should be delighted to have you use parts of "You 
Are the Hope of the World." — Herman Hagedorn, 
Author of "You Are the Hope of the World." 

Always conspicuous in its spirit of patriotism, the 
University of North Carolina has now made a move- 
ment to arouse the country to a fuller realization of 
what the war means to us. A leaflet just issued gives 
a brief outline of the University's war extension ser- 
vice in the field of education. — The Manufacturer's 
Becord, in an editorial entitled, "A Fine Work in 
Patriotism in Which the University of North Caro- 
lina Leads the Way." 

I thank you very much for sending me the ma- 
terial which you are circulating in North Carolina. 
It certainly seems to me a fundamentally sound idea 
to present to everybody possible the reasons why we 
are in the war. — Arthur W. Page, of the World's 

I am greatly indebted to you for your courtesy in 
sending me the information as to the War Service 
of the University of North Carolina. I congratu- 
late you on the work which you are doing. — James 
C. Egbert, Director of the Summer School and Ex- 
tension Teaching of Columbia University. 


John L. Patterson, '95, of Roanoke Eapids, and 
Paul W. Schenck, '98, of Greensboro, recently pre- 
sented colors consisting of the United States flag, the 
State flag, and regimental flag, to the military train- 
ing company which had made the best record. The 
colors were won by Captain G. D. Holding's com- 

Under the heading "By Way of Contrast," Com-. 
merce ami Finance, of New York City, has the fol- 
lowing : 

In the same illustrated section of one of the great 
New York papers Sunday before last there were two 
pictures reproduced by the rotagravure process that 
possibly made some men pause and think. 

One was of a heavy man with bulging jowls. He 
was on skates. His right arm was around the waist 
of a petite lady and his left hand held her right 
hand. She too, was on skates. 

The caption on this picture read : 

"George J. Gould trying out new figures in fancy 
skating at the St. Nicholas Rink under the instruc- 
tion of Miss Emmy Bergfeldt." 

The other picture was page wide. It showed per- 
haps 800 or 1,000 young men lined in columns of GO 



abreast. Everyone stood "at attention." Off to the 
right a young man held on high the Stars and Stripes. 

In the foreground was a man in civilian garb. By 
his side was a trim little lady. To the left of her 
was a man in khaki. 

The caption on this was: 

"At a Southern University where Nearly Every 
Student Volunteered for Military Training. 

"The University of North Carolina Battalion re- 
ceiving National and Regimental colors presented by 
two alumni. 

"In the foreground are President E. K. Graham, 
Miss Mary Patterson and Captain Allen of the Prin- 
cess Pat' Canadian Light Infantry." 

One of those pictures made the heart of a man 
beat a bit faster, made him proud, made him look 
with his mind's eye far away, far beyond the seas 
and vision things that are big and tragic and yet

JANUARY, 1918 

As announced in an earlier number of The Re- 
view, the High School Bulletin ceased publication in 
October, and will be replaced by the High School 
Journal, which will appear in January, 1918. 

The Journal will be published by the School of 
Education of the University with Prof. N. W. Wal- 
ker as editor and Professors M. C. S. Noble, II. W. 
Chase, and L. A. Williams as associate editors. It 
will have as contributing editors a number of school 
men of the State: 

Special articles will also be contributed regularly 
by the departments of English and Latin of the Uni- 

The paper is to be in size and general appearance 
quite similar to The Review, being 8% x 11% 
inches with two columns of reading matter to the 
page. It will appear 8 times a year. The sub- 
scription price is $1.00 a year and subscriptions 
should be sent to Prof. N. W. Walker at Chapel 


Dr. J. E. Mills, '00, formerly in the department 
of Chemistry, is now a Chemical Adviser in the Gas 
and Flame Combat Service. He is stationed near 
Washington and will soon sail for France. 


Eugene F. Hartley, of the class of 1899, is chief 
statistician for manufactures in the Bureau of the 
Census, Department of Commerce, Washington. He 

is now in the Virgin Islands supervising the taking 
of a census of the population, agriculture, manufac- 
tures and fisheries of the newly acquired possessions 
of the United States. 


F. S. Skinner, of the class of 1909, was commis- 
sioned on May 15th a captain, corps of engineers, U. 
S. Army. On August 4th he married Miss Mary 
Wentworth Comstock, of Providence, R. I., at Narra- 
gansett Pier, R. I. He was commissioned on August 
5th a major, corps of engineers, U. S. Army. He is 
now adjutant of the 23rd regiment of engineers, at

are at Fort Worth, Texas. 


President Graham's report, together with the re- 
ports of th? officers of the University, will appear in 
January. As this publication reviews the activities 
of the University for twelve months, it is easily one 
of the most interesting to the alumni issued by the 
University. If you wish a copy reserved for you,

On the evening of November 27 the student bat- 
talion, consisting of the four companies, band, wig- 
waggers and awkward squad, held an informal smok- 
er and get-together in Swain Hall, under the direc- 
tion of Captain J. Stuart Allen, P. P. C. L. I. 
Suitable "eats" were served, many stunts were given 
on a specially provided platform, and general good 
cheer prevailed. One of the most amusing entertain- 
ments was the antics of the awkward squad. The 
large dining hall was filled by the 500 soldier-stu- 
dents present.

The Life of Robert E. Lee for Boys and Girls. 
By J. G. De Roulhac Hamilton and Mary 
Thompson Hamilton. 1917. Houghton Mifflin 
Company. $1.25. 
It is perhaps impossible to read this book, devoted 
to the life and character of General Lee, without 
concluding that the labor of writing it was very con- 
genial to the authors; it is certainly a work of love. 
Despite this fact, there is a certain detachment of 
feeling apparent, a distance of perspective attained, 
and a fine restraint manifested in it — as, for example, 
in the passages respecting the John Brown raid in 
Virginia (Pp. 85-86) — which should prevent any in- 
ferences as to bias arising from sympathy that might 
be drawn since the writers are Southerners. Of bias, 
indeed, there is none. 

The work has some 209 pages, divided into fifteen 
chapters, ami contains four illustrations. The first 
chapters deal with Lee's ancestry, youth, and educa- 
tion. That entitled "Lee at West Point" presents 
him as a model student, never receiving a demerit, 
who stood second in scholarship, and who received a 
training which equipped him as an engineer of great 
practical ability. While not based on new material, 
this chapter contains matter never before presented in 
any biography of Lee, so far as the reviewer is aware, 
and treats the subject more completely and better 
than any other work. It is interesting, also, in that, 
while holding that the text-books, and especially 
Rawle On flir Constitution, which he studied, justi- 
fied s°cession as being constitutional, the writers con- 
sider (p. 27) the significance of this fact to have 
been exaggerated. Other chapters which are partic- 

ularly noteworthy are those on "State or Nation," 
"In Chief Command," "Appomattox," and "Lee and 
the Nation" with which last the book closes. 

Although it is fitting that a detailed examination 
of the various interpretations made in this work of 
Lee's life should be reserved for the more technical 
reviews, it would not be amiss to say a word about 
the larger significance of the book. The controlling 
thought of it is that Lee belongs not only to the 
South, but to the American Nation. For the first 
time in a biography, there appeirs an extended dis- 
cussion of Lee's conduct and opinions at Appomattox, 
where he advised surrender, contrary to the desires of 
President Davis and many officers, instead of dis- 
persing the army among the mountains and attempt- 
ing a prolonged guerilla warfare in the hope of se- 
curing better terms. This is an expansion of the ideas 
expressed in the famous essay of Charles Francis 
Adams. By his act, Lee preserved the country from 
deepened and possibly permanent sectional antipa- 
thies. After the surrender, he advised and promoted 
reconcilation. "Recollect that we form one country 
now. Abandon all these local animosities 'and make 
your sons Americans" is Lee's advice and is the 
thought which runs through the concluding pages of 
the book. 

The study is designed, as the title indicates, for 
young people, and this purpose is achieved in a nar- 
rative that is clearly and simply told. More than 
this, however, Professor and Mrs. Hamilton have pro- 
duced a book which will be of service to the historian 
and of interest to the adult reader who wishes, within 
short compass, a biography of Lee. — W. W. P., Jr. 

"Saber and Song: a Book of Poems" by William 
Thornton Whitsett, class of 1888, a volume bound 
and printed, with excellent taste, by the Norwood 
Press, and published by Whitsett Institute, has al- 
ready attracted favorable attention in high quarters. 
In one of the poems in this volume, entitled "Tell It," 
the following stanza embodies the contagious pro- 
pagandist fervor of the author — a fervor which his 
verse strengthens : 

You approve the thought here blended? 

Tell it; 
Like the goods in markets vended 
Its distant way all unpretended 
'Twill travel, till it hath far wended; 

Tell it 

No one can read this volume through and not be 
impressed by the author's poetic feeling, his idealism, 
and not infrequently by fitness of phrase and nobility 
of utterance. "An Ode to Expression" is a poem of 



genuine distinction — rich in allusiveness, in cultured 
vision and in majestic sweep of thought. The auto- 
biographic touch is revealed in the "One Intense Cry" 
which he places in the mouth of all those who seek 
the liberation of expression: 

God, let me voice myself before I die! 
Whether my work be spurned, or whether good, 
Know this, I glimpsed Thy Truth: I Understood. 

Some profound consciousness of the immortal role 
of poetry in human life, and some unquenchable faith 
in the infinite possibilities of human genius, find ade- 
quate expression in the sonnet "To a Poet," which 
seems, in its second verse, to embody the author's own 
creed : 

Though many seers, bay-crowned, through centuries 
May join with Shakespeare in the master sweep 

That wrings high plaudit from these hearts of ours; 
Still, some sure note else dead within the keys 
Awaits thy touch ; oh, minstrel dare not keep 
The chorus waiting longer for thy powers. 

Dr. W. deB. McNider's continued research in 
renal pathology is evidenced by the publication of 
two valuable papers during the past year. A "Study 
of the Acid-base Equilibrium of the Blood in Acute 
Bichloride Intoxication" appears in the Proceedings 
of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medi- 
cine, while the July issue of the Journal of Experi- 
mental Medicine publishes the results of his investi- 
gation on the "Relative Toxicity of Uranium Nitrate 
for Animals of Different Ages" and also on "The 
Efficiency of Diuretics in the Acutely Nephropathy 
Kidney, Protected and Unprotected by Sodium Car- 

In the experiments described in the first named 
paper an acute poisoning was induced in thirty-two 
normal dogs by the internal administration of mer- 
curic chloride. In six of these animals the violent 
gastro-enteritis was followed by collapse and death 
within forty-eight hours. The urine was reduced in 
quantity but, except for a small amount of albumen 
in one case, was otherwise normal. There was scarce- 
ly any tissue acidosis and the functional power of 
the kidney was very slightly affected. The histo- 
logic evidence of renal damage was limited to con- 
gestion and very slight epithelial degeneration. In 
nine of the dogs recovery followed the gastrointes- 
tinal inflammation. During or following convales- 
cence a slight to severe acidosis developed, as evi- 
denced by an increase in the hydrogen ion content 
and a reduction in the reserve alkali of the blood. 
The urine was reduced by forty to fifty per cent in 
quantity and contained a moderate amount of albu- 

men. The functional capacity of the kidneys was 
moderately impaired for a time. Gradual but com- 
plete recovery ensued in each of these dogs. In the re- 
maining seventeen dogs the recovery from the primary 
gastro-enteritis was followed in a few days by a se- 
vere acidosis with marked increase in the hydrogen 
ion concentration and a marked reduction in the re- 
serve alkali of the blood. Coincident with this con- 
dition the output of urine was greatly dimished or 
entirely abolished and albumen appeared in con- 
siderable quantity. On autopsy the kidneys were 
anemic and showed pronounced fatty degeneration 
in Henle's tubules and extreme degeneration and 
necrosis in the convoluted tubules. 

The second paper brings out the striking differ- 
ences, determined by the age of an animal, in the re- 
sistance of the kidney to certain toxic substances, 
and, further, the intimate relation between acidosis 
and renal impairment. In young dogs the first dose 
of uranium nitrate (5 mg. per kilo of body weight) 
produces little or no acidosis, causes no increase in 
the blood urea and but little reduction in the kidney's 
power to excrete sulphonephthalein. In old dogs the 
evidence of damage a] ipears in a marked acidosis 
and in greatly reduced excretion of sulphonephtha- 
lein, the extent of this effect being roughly propor- 
tionate to the age of the animal. Subsequent doses of 
the poison elicit distinct toxic effects in both young 
and old dogs but with an even more marked discrep- 
ancy in the effect according to age. The old ani- 
mals show at autopsy uniformly graver lesions than 
do the young ones, though the differences in morpho- 
logic injury are not distinguishable in dogs of near 
the same age. In those below one year the epithe- 
lium of the convoluted tubules shows slight degener- 
ation with a tendency to shrinkage, while very min- 
ute amounts of fat appear in the epithelium of 
Henle's tubules. In those above three years there 
is advanced fatty degeneration in Henle's tubules 
and swelling, vacuolation and necrosis of the epithe- 
lium of the convoluted tubules. 

The constant coincidence of acidosis with both 
functional and morphologic pathology of the kidney 
suggested the attempt at prevention of toxic effects 
by intravenous injection of alkaline solutions. In 
normal dogs Grehant's anesthetic produces little or 
no acidosis and apparently no renal injury. In cases 
of nephropathy induced by uranium nitrate, ibis 
anesthetic produces negligible, slight or grave injury 
in direct proportion to the age of the dog. The intra- 
venous injection of sodium carbonate solution will 
wholly or partially prevent this injury in dogs under 
one and one-half years of age but has little or no pro- 
tective influence in those above this age.

— before they went to France — 

a large number of the class of 1917 made their wills. 

A simple thing to do, for few of them had much in the way of 

But they made their wills, in order that they might leave at least 

one hundred dollars to the Alumni Loyalty Fund. 

— It is a simple thing they did ; but it has about it the indomitable spirit of im- 
mortality and the gracious spirit of loyal knighthood. 

— A member of the class of 1916 left behind a will of half dozen lines with two be- 
quests. One of them was a bequest of $100 to the Alumni Loyalty Fund. 

— Another man from an older generation in college left a bequest of $25,000. 

— Each after his ability and with equal desire! 

— WAR liberates large and generous emotions often repressed in times of peace. 

— WHY should not every loyal alumnus on the firing line of life make a bequest to 
the Loyalty Fund % He withdraws nothing from use ; he is enabled to give 
back to the institution and to society a part of the talents given to him ; it 
makes him a permanent partner in youth and progress. 

— You think you will never die. 

Perhaps not. But be on the safe side, and say what you want done with what you 
leave . Write your will now; don't wait till you've got your million. Put 
the Alumni Loyalty Fund in for from $100 to $100,000. A holograph will is 
enough. It is as easy as this: "I hereby give and bequeath to the Alumni 

Loyalty Fund of the University of North Carolina the sum of

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
