CY THOMPSON SA YS— 

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 now.

JANUARY, 1918 



Number 4 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



Of the year 1917, President Graham speaks as 

follows in the opening paragraphs of his report to the 

„,„„ „ _, Trustees which was given the 

THE PRESIDENT'S ,,. T „ r & , 

REPORT public on January 15th : 

In April, 1917, came America's entry in the great 
world war: a fact of supreme significance to the Uni- 
versity, as to every other vital institution in the Na- 
tion. Obviously it means great sacrifices ; but it 
means also rich compensations and great new respon- 
sibilities. These will be, if adequately met, of such 
importance as to make this report in the eyes of the 
future historian of the University mark the begin- 
ning of a new era in its development as clearly sepa- 
rated from the fifty years that followed the Civil War 
as that period is from the fifty years that preceded. 

nan 

In the foregoing words the great war is placed 
first by the President among the causes which will 

make 1917 the beginning of a 
THE KENAN , . . ,, & TT . & ., , 

PROFESSORSHIPS ? f W eha ^ T ] m . ^ University s 

history. And rightly so. 

But the year would have marked the beginning of 
a new chapter for other reasons, even if the war had 
not involved the fortunes of the University. Of 
these the most significant was the receipt of the Bing- 
ham bequest providing for the Kenan professor- 
ships. This gift, made for the specific purpose of 
strengthening the faculty, through supplementing the 
maintenance provided by the State, and thus, as 
stated in the will, in the high and ultimate "interest of 
the education of the youth of North Carolina," puts 
it within the power of the University to mature, on 
a vastly increased scale, the ideals which have hith- 
erto given it distinction among America's leading in- 
stitutions of learning. 

"The significance of the bequest," to quote further 
from President Graham, "in the development of the 
University, and indeed in the development of the 
State, has not yet been fully realized. It means that 
the faculty may be given almost double its present 
strength ; it means that the extent and the quality of 
this source of all its service may be so liberated from 
past restrictions that the youth of the State will have 
that equality of opportunity, judged by national 
standards, that equality of preparation and inspira- 
tion assures. 



"No conditions are attached to the gift except that 
it be used by the Trustees, as supplementary to State 
support, for the purpose of strengthening the faculty 
through establishing Kenan professorships. In this 
it goes simply and directly to the heart of the whole 
matter of educational statesmanship. Our problem 
is now the creative one of wisely using, what I con- 
ceive to be, the greatest opportunity for University 
development and for State progress that has come 
in the past twenty-five years." 

ODD 

In its April, (1917) issue, The Keview reviewed 

the legislation passed by the General Assembly as it 

affected the University. As will be 

ASSISTANCE recalled > the State Creased the 
maintenance from $115,000 to 
$1G5,000 annually, and, through a bond issue, pro- 
vided a building fund of $100,000 annually for five 
years. This, as we said at the time, marked a new 
era in the history of the University, and is cause 
number three why the University historian should 
start a new chapter for 1917. President Graham 
notes this fact in speaking of the "Material Equip- 
ment" of the University and gives the information 
that the new power plant has already been erected out 
of this fund and that plans for a building for phy- 
sics and allied sciences have been completed and are 
now ready for submission to the State Building Com- 
mittee. Q Q n 

Every one has known for years that the salaries of 

the faculty have been too low. As a result, the 

University has had to give up some of 

SALARIES its men t0 otlier institutions wn ere 
the remuneration was higher. The es- 
tablishment of the Kenan professorships, President 
Graham thinks, should lead to a change in this im- 
portant particular. On this point he says: 

Our salary scale for our best men has always been 
recognized as too low ; but with the rapid increase in 
the cost of living, and with the advance in faculty 
salaries elsewhere, it becomes absolutely necessary 
that some adjustment be made between the quality 
of the service rendered and the return received. Good 
men not only cannot do their best work when they are 
harassed by unpaid bills, but they cannot stay and 
work with us at all. Competition with other institu-

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



THE H. C. L. 



tions, all other questions aside, requires us to face 
the fact that real persons of power are worth what 
they cost — in education even as in business or in the 
other professions — and that in the long run an insti- 
tution makes clear what it thinks good men are worth 
by what it pays them. 

We have not hitherto been in a position to carry 
out these principles in practice; but this magnificent 
bequest is given to us for this single and especial pur- 
pose. The problem of using it so as to realize its 
splendid possibilities is immense, involving our whole 
educational policy and practice. We should proceed 
to its solution immediately, in order to make as rapid 
and full use of its opportunities as possible; but we 
shall need, too, a large and wise patience for a task 
that concerns the shaping of the life of a permanent 
institution. It is one that will tax the full powers 
of all those to whom its development is entrusted. 

DDD 

The report has something to say about the H. C. L. 
—high cost of living — and the activities of Swain 
Hall. But a word personal is in or- 
der first. Six weeks after college 
opened the Editor had occasion to employ a student 
to split some stove wood. The youth looked pink 
■and sturdy. From the date of entering he had 
boarded at Swain Hall and he had gone from 144 to 
166 pounds. And "cussed" the fare, too! When 
asked the direct question, he admitted it ! 

In spite of the greatly increased price of food prod- 
ucts, Swain Hall has been operated during the pres- 
ent year successfully at a cost of $13.50 per month 
per person. About four hundred men now board 
at the college commons. To provide satisfactory 
board at this price is a distinct achievement. In 
three of the large eastern universities the cost of 
board at the college commons for 1916-17 averaged 
$27 a month, and the average deficit for the year was 
$14,000. The difference between debits and credits, 
in the management of Swain Hall, for the whole of 
the current year is $1.75. 

DDD 

The report covers many other interesting particu- 
lars concerning which every alumnus should inform 
himself bv securing a complete copy. 

THE 4 FUTURE? W °^ J^JT^ Ae ^Z * W °~ 

man s building, the new college spir- 
it, military training, war information service through 
the Bureau of Extension, and other phases of the 
University's work are mentioned. 

But possibly the most thought-provoking pai-a- 
graphs are the following which relate to the immedi- 
ate future : 

Attendance Next Year 

It is not possible, of course, to say with any confi- 
dence what effect the war will have on the attendance 



next year. Under present circumstances it seems 
that both the more reasonable and the more patriotic 
thing for men under the draft age to do is to remain 
in the training of the college rather than go to the 
cantonments. They can be trained intensively in col- 
lege in military work, and in their other studies as 
\v;ll. and the Government relieved of their cave. 
There will be many noble and quick-spirited boys 
who will feel that they cannot remain in college, 
under any circumstances, but must show their will- 
ingness to fight by immediately going to camp ; but 
in the main so reasonable and right does the other 
view appear that I believe the college enrollment 
for next year will not in its net results be greatly re- 
duced. 

Stick to Building Program 

Certainly there should be no slackening in the 
building program here and in the other educational 
institutions in the State. In our own case the pro- 
jected improvements are for needs long felt through 
the past rather than for future growth. Should the 
war last five years, the buildings that we put up at 
the rate of one a year will scarcely be adequate for 
more than our immediate needs. They will be ab- 
solutely necessary if we are in any way prepared to 
lake care of the men who will be released from war 
service and who will take up college work again. 
Important Decade Before Us 

Educationally the decade that follows war will be, 
I believe, the richest and most fruitful in the Nation's 
history. Here in the South, and in North Carolina 
especially, we need to keep heroically foremost in our 
public policy the determination not to slacken, but 
rather to quicken our educational activities during 
the war. England and France under war burdens 
incomparably greater than ours have doubled their 
educational budgets. It is clearly the inevitable pol- 
icy of wisdom. 

Our handling of our educational affairs in the 
next few years will furnish once more a test of our 
statesmanship and give once more a clear revelation 
of what relative place we give education in the things 
worth while in commonwealth building. The neces- 
sity of war economies will show what we value in 
terms of what we nourish and of what we sacrifice. 
If schools are the first public-service institutions 
closed for lack of fuel ; if their terms are shortened 
as first steps in economy; if we cease building them 
and yet build other things ; if they cannot compete 
with business for the services of the few good men 
and women they need — we shall know in concrete 
terms that in time of storm we feel that they are 
still the first to be cast overboard, and not, as we 
have claimed to believe, the basis of the democracy 
for which we are fighting. No sacrifice is too great 
to make for the schools, and no patriotism is more 
genuinely productive than the patriotism whose faith 
in the schools is so deeply rooted that no public dis-

traction or disaster is permitted to blight them as 
the source of all of our reconstructive power. 
Confidence in the University's Future 

My great confidence in the future of the University 
is based on the extraordinary need for its present and 
future service, and on the spirit of intelligent sympa- 
thy and co-operation that have been shown by the peo- 
ple in the State at large and by the faculty, alumni, 
and students. The days ahead of us grow out of 
the days that are gone ; but in every phase of human 
activity that a university touches they are new days 
with a new and a broader horizon. They will test 
the capacity of the University for leadership, not 
only in terms of energy, efficiency, learning, and 
scholarship, but in terms of renewed vision, sympa- 
thy, and high devotion. Out of this new opportunity 
to serve in a great and difficult way, and aided, as it 
wonderfully has been, by the understanding of the 
State, whose highest aspiration it seeks to express, I 
believe that this institution will come into a new and 
especial greatness.

This the Tenth Annual Bulletin of the Class of 
1908 of the University of North Carolina, closes the 
series of Bulletins arranged for by the Class at the 
time of graduation. It gees forward with the hope 
that it may serve both the interests of the Class and 
more especially the interests of the University. For 
both of these purposes to be more satisfactorily ful- 
filled, it is hoped that every member of the Class will 
begin making arrangements now to attend the Tenth 
Year Reunion at Chapel Hill in June, 1918.

Back in the last days of the University Press, 
when the type had done duty some ten years too

JOURNAL drical) bearings of the ancient 

"Babcock" had worn absolutely 
flat, the alumni could not well be called upon to join 
with us in enthusiastic approval of the University's 
publications. But that day has passed, and with its 
passing has come the new day of publications worthy 
alike for the high quality of their contents and at- 
tractive appearance. The High School Journal 
(the first number of which has recently appeared) 
easily comes under the class of the new order of pub- 
lications. Attractive in appearance, the first num- 
ber is full of the kind of material which the Uni- 



versity should furnish the secondary schools of the 
State. The publication is so distinctive in both ap- 
pearance and quality that every alumnus should be- 
come a subscriber, or at least secure a copy to see 
(and thereby be able to tell others) how worth while 
the publication is. 

DDD 

The Review may be going outside its legitimate 
field when it undertakes to say a word about the sal- 
„„.„„.„„, aries which North Carolina teachers 
SALARIES receiving. But lie that as it may, 

the matter is too important not to be 
brought to the thoughtful attention of the alumni. 

It isn't that we merely wish to repeat what every 
one knows — that the salaries of the school teachers 
are shamelessly inadequate. Too many of the 
alumni who are teachers know that only too well. 
But it is to challenge alumni as educated men (many 
of them members of school boards) to do their duty 
in the all-important matter of keeping the schools 
going under the highest possible sort of leadership. 
And to do that today under war-time prices and in 
competition with the government's demand for young 
men and women in the army and administrative of- 
fices, means increasing materially the teacher's wage. 
Otherwise there are not going to be any teachers in 
many a school. 

For fifty years North Carolina has felt the blight 
of ignorance incident to the eclipse of the light of 
learning during the sixties. The experience is too 
tragic to be repeated. Keep the (well-paid) teacher 
at his post. 

DDD 

Plans for the rehabilitation of the General Alumni 

Association, for the working out of a new constitu- 

tion, and for providing machinery for 

THE TIME *^ e election of officers, etc., should be 

gotten under under way soon if they 

are to be in final form at commencement. 

The power of the alumni is too great and too 
vital to the University to remain unutilized for the 
lack of proper machinery through which it may ex- 
press itself. 

Do you have a suggestion to make to the executive 
committee concerning a plan of organization ? Or is 
there some special, important action which you think 
the alumni should take? Or is there any matter 
which you think should receive alumni attention ? 
If so, these columns are open to you. The editors 
might die from the shock which the receipt of an 
alumni communication for The Review would occa- 
sion (so rarely is one received) but they'll take the 
risk ! Now's the time to try it !

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
KENAN PROFESSORS APPOINTED 



Professors Venable, H. V. Wilson, Greenlaw, MacNider and Cain are Selected 

from the Faculty 



At the mid-winter meeting of the Board of Trus- 
tees, January 22nd, Drs. F. P. Venable, H. V. Wil- 
son, Edwin Greenlaw, W. deB. McNider, and Major 
William Cain were appointed Kenan professors. 
They were nominated through ballot by the faculty 
early in January, the nominations being confirmed 
by President Graham and the Trustees. The salary 
which the new professorships carry is $3,500 per 
year. 

Concerning the appointment and the appointees, 
the following prepared statement appeared in the 
State papers of the 23rd : 

The first important step in the use of the recent 
bequest by Mrs. Robert W. Bingham (Mary Lily 
Kenan) to the University of North Carolina, was 
taken at the annual mid-winter meeting of the Board 
of Trustees yesterday by the appointment to Kenan 
professorships of five members of the present faculty. 
The men so honored are Dr. F. P. Venable, Dr. IT. 
V. Wilson, Maj. William Cain, Dr. Edwin Green- 
law, and Dr. Wm. deB. MacNider. The choice was 
made on the recommendation of the faculty, en- 
dorsed by the president. 

Dr. F. P. Venable 

Dr. F. P. Venable, Kenan professor of Chemistry, 
is widely know throughout the country as an investi- 
gator, author and teacher. He has been president of 
the American Chemical Society and is now a mem- 
ber of the board of six chemists chosen by Secretary 
Lane to investigate chemical problems connected with 
the war. He is the author of numerous books, was 
for fourteen years president of the University, and 
has been for over twenty years a successful lecturer 
and teacher. 

Dr. H. V. Wilson 

Dr. H. V. Wilson (Zoology) has been for many 
years an acknowledged leader in the University fac- 
ulty, a stimulating teacher, devoted to scientific schol- 
arship in all of its relations, an untiring and produc- 
tive investigator, highly honored by his fellow schol- 
ars in the nation. 

Maj. William Cain 

Maj. William Cain (Mathematics) for twenty- 
eight years professor of Mathematics and head of the 
department, during which time he has, as a teach- 
er, investigator and author, won wide recognition in 
the general field of mathematics, and in his special 
field where his work is uniquely authoritative. 
Dr. Edwin Greenlaw 

Dr. Edwin Greenlaw (English Literature). Dr. 
Greenlaw has been a member of the faculty for only 



four years, but during this comparatively brief time 
he has made notable contributions to the develop- 
ment of the University through a vigorous, scholarly 
and continuing interest in every side of its life: as 
administrative head- of the English department, as 
editor of Studies in Philology, as an interested and 
inspiring teacher, as a sympathetic interpreter of 
the University spirit in contemporary affairs. 
Dr. William deB. MacNider 

Dr. Wm. deB. MacNider (Pharmacology) is a 
representative of the younger faculty group recog- 
nized by his colleagues for his completely devoted 
and inspiring service to his profession. As an origi- 
nal and unremitting investigator he has achieved 
distinguished recognition in the country at large as 
one of the most productive men in his field. 



SALARY INCREASE PROVIDED 

Through a further action of the Trustees an in- 
crease in the salaries of all members of the faculty 
having the rank of instructors, assistant and asso- 
ciate professors and professors, was authorized, the 
increase in every instance approximating ten per 
cent of the salary formerly received. 



SUMMER CAMP AT ASHEVILLE 

Another announcement of general interest was the 
authorization by the board of the establishment of a 
summer University military training camp at Ashe- 
ville, primarily for young men between the ages of 
1G and 20. This camp will cover the period from 
the middle of June to August 1. This camp, it is 
believed, will serve a wide and especially useful pur- 
pose under present circumstances in furnishing val- 
uable military and physical training. Through the 
generosity of Col. Robert Bingham the plant of 
the Bingham School has been placed at the disposal 
of the camp. Capt. J. Stuart Allen and Professor 
T. F. Hickerson (civil engineering), assisted by Mr. 
Bingham McKee and Mr. W. A. Blount will be 
in charge of the work. 

The board also received the annual report of the 
president and detailed reports of the deans and other 
officers of the University of the work for the year. 
These set forth "gratifying conditions in practically 
every aspect of the institution's life." The reac- 
tions of the University to the war are outlined in re- 
lation to active war service of alumni, faculty and 
students . 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
CAROLINA AND THE GREAT WAR 



91 



Eight Hundred Alumni and Students Have Entered the Service and the Campus 

Has Been Put on a Military Basis 



The following facts taken from the President's re- 
port concerning Carolina's participation in the great 
war will challenge the interest of every reader of 
The Review: 

Immediately after the declaration of war volun- 
tary military drill was begun by about 500 of the 
students under faculty direction, and with the special 
assistance of Captain Hugh Broadhurst, U. S. A., 
and Captain L. P. McLendon, both University 
alumni. This work was continued until the close of 
the college year. 

A large number of the students volunteered during 
these early months in various branches of the service, 
and approximately 200 students and young alumni 
entered the first reserve officers' training camp at 
Fort Oglethorpe. In the second camp there were 
about 115 Carolina men. 

Carolina Men in Service 

By the opening of the new college year our records 
showed over 800 Carolina men in active service. The 
list that follows here, showing the distribution of 
these men, is interesting though incomplete: Briga- 
dier General, 2 ; Colonel, 3 ; Lieutenant Colonel, 3 ; 
Major, 9 ; Captain, 45 ; First Lieutenant, 66 ; Second 
Lieutenant, 242. Medical Corps: Colonel, 1; Ma- 
jor, 8; Captain, 9; First Lieutenant, 76. Naval Di- 
vision, 19; Lieutenant Commander, 4; Paymaster, 
1; Lieutenant, 4; Lieutenant, Junior Grade, 1; En- 
sign, 3; Chaplain, 2; Midshipman, 1; Aviation, 31; 
Wireless, 2; Hospital, 14; Navy, 13; Y. M. C. A. 
work, 5 ; Linguist, 1 ; Privates and Noncommission- 
ed Officers, 125. 

Faculty in Service 

The following members of the faculty also enlisted : 
Dr. Joseph H. Pratt, Professor of Economic Geology, 
Major of Engineers; Professor P. H. Winston, Pro- 
fessor of Law, Major, Judge Advocate General's 
Corps; T. J. Campbell, Director of Athletics, Cap- 
tain ; Professor R. L. James, Assistant Professor of 
Mathematics, Lieutenant ; Dr. J. H. Johnston, As- 
sistant Professor of Education, Lieutenant; H. R. 
Totten, Instructor in Botany, Lieutenant ; V. A. 
Coulter, Instructor in Chemistry, Lieutenant ; Dr. 
Oliver Towles, Assistant Professor of Romance Lan- 
guages, Sergeant ; Dr. C. M. Keyes, Instructor in 
Latin, Private; and Frank P. Graham, Instructor in 
History, Corporal, U. S. Marines. 

New College Spirit 

The number of students who matriculated during 
1917 now engaged in service is approximately 200. 



About 20 per cent of each group of faculty, students, 
and alumni are enlisted in various branches of active 
war service. The response was immediate, unre- 
served, and fully in accord with those fine traditions 
that make rarely precious earlier days in the Uni- 
versity's history. No one except a college officer in 
intimate touch with the life of the students can fully 
know just how unaffected and splendid the response 
w^s. The war has revealed what pi rhaps needed no 
demonstration — that American college students are 
animated by a more healthfully serious purpose than 
they have, in the general thought, been credited with. 
Military Training Inaugurated 

In spite of the loss from enlistments, the opening 
in September showed no great net loss in the number 
of students. The total of those registered for credit 
courses was 1,113. The total number of freshmen 
was 323. 

From every point of view it appeared advisable 
to add military courses to the curriculum, and to 
put the work on an adequate University basis. No 
officers nor equipment could be secured from the 
government. We were able, however, by the open- 
ing of the fall term to begin the military instruction 
with a thoroughly competent faculty, a well-adjusted 
schedule, and a fairly satisfactory equipment. 

The faculty consists of Captain J. Stuart Allen 
(McGill University, Canada), who, as a member of 
Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, has had 
unusual experience in modern military science; Jona- 
than Leonard (A.M. Harvard, '97), Lieutenant, Har- 
vard R. O. T. C; and J. V. Whitfield (U. N. C, 
1915), for two years commandant at Horner's Mili- 
tary School. 

The military work is voluntary, but almost all 
undergraduates, except those who have an extraor- 
dinary amount of laboratory work, or self-help work, 
or who are physically disqualified, take it. Fiva 
hundred and sixty men have enrolled in the course. 
Eight members of the faculty also take it on the 
same basis as the students. Twelve hours a week 
are given to it and five hours of college credit allowed. 
In order to provide the time in what already ap- 
peared to be a crowded schedule, we now begin the 
college day at 8 a. m., the first period for all the 
six days being given to military work, and two hours 
every other day from 4 to 6 p. m. This additional 
work gives a full day from 8 a. m. to 6 p. m. for prac- 
tically all undergraduates. In order to get the time 
for the drill and the ground space necessary, and to 
enable the students to concentrate their interest on 
i he military training, the major athletic schedules 
were canceled.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Value of Training 

It is high praise for the genuine worth of the mili- 
tary instruction and the spirit in which it has been 
conducted to be able to say that the college community 
has apparently not missed the previously absorbing 
interest of intercollegiate football. 

The course covered from September 15 to Decem- 
ber 20 included: (1) close-order drill, (2) open-or- 
der drill, (3) manual of arms, (4) maneuvers of at- 
tack by day and night, (5) construction of trenches, 
wire obstacles, and shelters. The lectures dealt with 
these and other essentials of modern warfare. 
Equipment Provided 

The ground needed for trench construction was 
generously provided through the courtesy of the Or- 
der of Gimghouls, an admirably adapted plat adja- 
cent to Piney Prospect. A rifle range has also been 
provided through the kindness of Mr. C. L. Lindsay. 



Two hundred and fifty rifles suitable for drill, gen- 
erously donated by Mr. Julius Cone, of Greensboro, 
have been of great service; and fifty modem rifles 
for use in target practice were given us by another 
benefactor. Uniforms and other equipment was 
purchased by the students. 

Future Plans 

In maturing our plans for putting military work 
on a permanent basis we shall have the co-operation of 
(he government as soon as it is in a position to give 
assistance. For the immediate future it is clear that 
we should make our military work as good and as 
thorough as possible. 

It seems further clear, in this connection, that phy 
sical training for all students should be far more se- 
riously considered in our educational plan than it 
has been hitherto ; and that it should be put on a 
basis equal in importance to other departments. 



BUREAU OF EXTENSION PUBLICATIONS 



Three Important Bulletins and Ten War Leaflets Have Been Issued 



The Bureau of Extension has issued throughout 
the fall thirteen special publications and now has 
three others in press. 

Public Discussion and Debate 

The first Bulletin (Extension Series No. 22), en- 
titled Public Discussion and Debate, is a complete 
revision of Extension Bulletin No. 6. It is in- 
tended to be used as a handbook on debate for all the 
schools and clubs of the State and contains all the in- 
formation essential to the organization and conduct 
of literary societies. In the new edition briefs and 
material on the questions of the day have replaced 
older queries, and for the benefit of such members 
of the societies as do not debate, a chapter of 
programs for special exercises has been provided. 
Emphasis has again been placed on North Carolina 
and county problems, and the Bulletin in this re- 
spect will be of great value to societies or clubs study- 
ing North Carolina social and economic conditions. 
North Carolina Club Year Book, 1916-17 

The North Carolina Club Year Book, 1016-17, is 
the title of the second Bulletin (Extension series No. 
23). This booklet of 140 pages contains the studies 
presented before the North Carolina Club of the Uni- 
versity during 1916-17 prepared in the laboratory of 
the departmevt of Rural Economics and Sociology 
under Professor E. C. Branson. Like its predeces- 
sor of 1915-16, it deals intimately with social and 
economic questions in North Carolina. No student 
of North Carolina present day life can afford to be 



without it as the information contained in it cannot 
possibly be secured elsewhere. 

Debaters' Handbook for 1918 

Compulsory Arbitration of Industrial Disputes 
(Extension series No. 26), is the title of the third 
Bulletin. It is the handbook — prepared by Secre- 
tary E. R. Rankin, of the High School Debating 
Union, for the annual contest of the Union in April, 
1918. The question of compulsory arbitration of 
industrial disputes is set forth in eighty-four pages, 
with brief, bibliography, and other essential matter. 
Two hundred additional copies of the Bulletin were 
printed upon request of a former Carolina man for 
use in the high school debating union of Alabama. 
Other Bulletins in Press 

Three other bulletins now in press which will be 
mailed in February are: Local Study Clubs (No. 
24), Correspondence Courses and Lectures (No. 251, 
and Declamation Handbook (No. 27), for use in 
the schools of the State. 

Copies of these publications can be secured by 
North Carolinians and alumni upon application to 
the Bureau of Extension. A charge of twenty-five 
cents per copy is made if they are supplied to others 
outside the State. 

Extension Leaflets 

The Bureau has devoted almost the entire space of 
the University News Letter (beginning with the issue 
of November 7) to information concerning the war. 
This information has been supplemented by the pub-

ALUMNI IN ALASKA 



Two alumni of the University represent Carolina 
in the Alaskan stretches. Jas. R. Craven, of the 
class of 1912, is assistant observer for the U. S. 
Weather Bureau, at Juneau, Alaska, where he has 
been stationed for the past two years. Rev. Fred B. 
Drane, also of the class of 1912 and formerly presi- 
dent of this class, is an Episcopal missionary located 
at Nenana, Alaska. He writes that "I am still in 
charge of the Tanana Valley Mission and have some 
"i00 miles of valley to cover. My travels for the 
past fall carried me over a thousand miles, mostly 
with dog teams, and I have slept out at 50 below 
zero. 

"If mention has not been made of my brother, Dr. 



Robert Drane, of the class of 1910, you might note 
that when last heard from he was serving as surgeon 
for the 10th Lancashire Regiment, a famous English 
infantry regiment which has won more Victoria 
crosses than any other regiment. He is a lieutenant 
in the U. S. Medical Reserve Corps, however." 



29 OFFICERS PROMOTED. 

Twenty-nine alumni of the University, members of 
the Officers Reserve Corps stationed with the 81st 
Division at Camp Jackson, Columbia, S. G, re- 
ceived promotions recently. Silas U. McBee, of 
Memphis, Tenn., was promoted from captain to 
major in the field artillery department. Donald F. 
Ray, of Fayetteville, was promoted from 1st lieuten- 
ant to captain in the field artillery department. 

The following men were promoted from second 
lieutenancies to first lii-utenancies in field artillery: 
Gillam Craig, R. P. Brooks, J. W. Hughes, W. G. 
Burgess, G. M Norwood, F. C. Shepard, K. C. Roy- 
all. J. F. ( !ro -well. M. A. White. 

The following men were promoted from second 
lieutenancies to first lieutenancies in infantrv: M. 
T. Spears, W. O. Smith, H. L. Smith, C. C. Laugh- 
lin. F. L. Dunlap, J. E. Carter, C. L. Coggin, T.^A. 
ii- Vane, .1. (). Dysart, L. H. Clement, Jr., R. T. 
Allen. 11. 11. Crawford, E. T. Cansler, Jr., L. A. 
Blue, Jr., C. A. Cochran, W. B. Umstead. J. M. 
Turin-fill was promoted from 2nd lieutenant to 1st 
lieutenant in cavalry. 



WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS? 
A campus suggestion has been made to the effect 
that the 1918 Commencement should be made as 
memorable for the University as is the existing 
crisis for the nation. The details of the suggestion 
are as follows: 

1. The University Battalion should not be dis- 
banded until after Commencement, and should take 
part in the exercises. 

2. Every class reunion should be unusually com- 
plete. 

3. Every class not having a reunion should have 
present at least one representative from some branch 
of the service. 

4. Every permanent student organization should 
have a reunion, in some cases an initiation, at Com- 
mencement time. 

5. Shorten the examination period one week, 
thereby making the final day of Commencement May 
29 instead of June 5. This would not throw addi- 
tional expense on the Batallion as it will have to re- 
main until the 29th unless the examination period is 
shortened.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



MAJOR HENRY A. LONDON DEAD 

Major Henry Armand London, A. B. 1865, de- 
voted alumnus, loyal friend and staunch supporter of 
the University, a member of the board of trustees, 
died January 20th at his home in Pittsboro. Major 
London was 71 years of age at the time of his death. 
He had been closely identified with the University 
all through his life, and had rendered to his Alma 
Mater effective and most faithful service. 

The Trustees of the University, in meeting at Ral- 
eigh on January 20th, adopted a resolution offered 
by Perrin Busbee, of Raleigh, and seconded by W. 
N. Everett, of Rockingham, to erect a tablet in Me- 
morial Hall honoring the memory of Major London. 
The resolution follows: 

The Board of Trustees of the University have 
learned with deep sorrow of the death of Henry Ar- 
mand London, of Pittsboro, North Carolina, and the 
Confederacy of the old south. Henry London was 
a member of this body and had served on the Board 
of Trustees for many years. His death occurred 
early last Sunday morning. Punctual and efficient 
as a trustee, devoted and loyal as an alumnus, dili- 
gent and learned as a lawyer, fearless and trenchant 
as an editor, zealous and unhesitating as a soldier 
and patriot, devout and beneficent as a churchman, 
affectionate and indulgent as a parent, patriotic and 
unassuming as a publicist — he has entered into a 
well-earned rest from his labors in an active and use- 
ful life and has left behind a heritage of love and 
affection and a spotless character to his family, and 
a memory of honor and faithful service to his ac- 
quaintances in this life and to his associates upon 
this board. 

Resolved, that a tablet to his memory be ordered 
placed upon the walls of Memorial Hall in token of 
the loving affection in which he was held by this 
board and the alumni of the University and of his 
distinguished services to the University and the 
State. 



DEBATING UNION PREPARES FOR CONTEST 

More than 275 high schools have enrolled in the 
High School Debating Union of North Carolina for 
this year's contest. The triangular debates will be 
held throughout the State on March 29th and the 
final contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup will be 
held at the University on April 11th and 12th. 

The query which is to be discussed this year is: 
Resolved, That Congress should enact a law provid- 
ing for the compulsory arbitration of industrial dis- 
putes. The various schools entering the Union have 
been supplied with copies of Extension Series No. 
26, Compulsory Arbitration of Industrial Disputes. 

Much interest is being taken in the contest of the 
Union in the State, and indications are that this 



year's contest will be one of the most successful in 
the history of the Union. This year's contest is the 
sixth of the annual debating series of the High 
School Debating Union. The Pleasant Garden, Wins- 
ton-Salem, Wilson, Graham and Waynesville high 
schools have won the Aycock Memorial Cup in the 
past. 



ALUMNI AT CAMP GRANT 

Colonel Benjamin Taylor Simmons, U. S. A., of 
the class of 1892, has command of the 344th infan- 
try regiment at Camp Grant, 111. Col. Simmons is 
a native of Fairfield, Hyde County, and is a grad- 
uate of West Point, Lieutenant Colonel Jack 
Hayes, U. S. A., is second in command of the 341st 
infantry regiment at Camp Grant. Lieut. Col. 
Hayes is a native of Raleigh and a member of the 
class of 1900. Dr. W. A. Murphy, a native of 
Morganton and a member of the class of 1901, holds 
a captaincy in the Medical Reserve Corps and is 
stationed with the 344th infantry at Camp Grant. 



COURTESY EXTENDED CAPT. WEAVER 

Capt. Fleming R. Weaver, class of 1913, of the 
Ordnance Department, U. S. Army, has been as- 
signed to active duty as American attache to the 
Royal Flying Corps of England for the purpose of 
observing the effectiveness of the latest type of 
American aircraft gun, firing incendiary charges at 
hostile airplanes and dirigibles. Capt. Weaver's 
base is in Canada but his line of duties is in England. 
This is the courtesy of the British government to an 
American officer. 



NEWS FROM CHICKAMAUGA PARK 

Lieut. Lenoir Chambers, Jr., '14, received his ap- 
pointment as first lieutenant from the second Ogle- 
thorpe camp and is stationed with the 52nd Infantry, 
Chickamauga Park, Ga. He writes that "Carolina 
men are all around me here. E. J. Lilly, Jr., bunks 
next door. Charley Johnson, of Raleigh, is down 
the hall. Frank S. Spruill, Jr., of Rocky Mount, is 
in my company. Claiborne Royall and Trent Rag- 
land are in the 53rd Infantry. Cy Long has been 
transferred from the 55th to an ammunition train 
and, I believe, is on his way across." 



DR. McNIDER MARRIES 

Dr. Wm. deB. MacNider, professor of Pharma- 
cology in the University Medical School, was mar- 
ried on January 23rd, his bride being Miss Sarah 
Foard. The ceremony took place at the home of 
the bride's parents at South River near Salisbury.

DR. EDWIN MIMS AT THE UNIVERSITY 

To think nationally and to bold on after the war 
to the great social, economic and political advances 
that we are pouring out our very life to get — this is 
the supreme duty of the American people, according 
to Dr. Edwin Mims, of Vanderbilt University, who 
has just completed a seminar of five lectures on 
American literature at the University. 

"In the most dramatic moment of history," de- 
clared Dr. Mims, "we are snatched up from our 
usual peaceful borders and set down in the midst of 
the raging crisis, where Caflyle threw down the 
challenge over 70 years ago; what big thought or 
man can you boast of? The challenge has not gone 
unanswered. We respond in unmistakable terms 
when we produce the spokesman, born in the south 
and trained in the north, who, when he speaks, holds 
the whole world at attention. Greater than any of 
his sectionalist predecessors, and rivaling Lincoln 
in the clearness and force of his style, he stands 
the guiding star in the democratic world. 

"And not only have we the man but the thought 
also to answer Carlyle's challenge. The most dis- 
tinctive step in political idealism of the whole war is 
the idea of a league to enforce peace, a partnership 
of nations, a concert of free peoples. This idea is 
original with us. It is America's concrete, definite 
thought to the world." — Greensboro Daily News, 
Dec. 20th. 



GRADUATE ENGLISH AND HISTORY 

Editor, The Review: 

Sir: In your December issue of The Review you 
have two letters relative to the best disposition of the 
Bingham bequest. I am heartily in favor of Mr. 
Whitaker's suggestion, namely, to increase the pay 
of the faculty. The University has too long suffered 
because some of its best teachers have been drawn 
elsewhere by a mighty force — bigger money. 

But, to my mind, the greatest use to which Caro- 
lina can put her recent gift is to strengthen the 
graduate departments of English and History. I 
name these two departments because they are logi- 
cally the only departments that any Southern insti- 
tution, without the expenditure of enormous sums 
of money, can hope to make equal to the departments 
of the best universities in the United States. I be- 
lieve the South is rich in its own literature and his- 
tory, which ought to be taught to all America. I 
am not for creating a spirit of sectionalism, or re- 
viving memories of the dead past. These two de- 
partments should teach English and history as any 
first class American university should teach these 
subjects. In addition, the departments should lay 



special stress on American Literature and American 
History. Now, since Carolina is a Southern uni- 
versity it ought to be an authority on Southern Lit- 
erature and Southern History. I believe this is the 
most propitious time for Carolina to take the lead. 
Happily, the present war is giving the death stab 
to any lingering traces of sectionalism between north 
and south. In the place of sectionalism comes 
Americanism, true and united. The educated people 
of the South have for a long time known more of the 
north than the north has known of the south, because 
many of them attended northern schools. Who, even 
of the school children, in the south does not know of 
Whitticr, Longfellow, Emerson. Hawthorne, Holmes, 
and other northern authors ? But I have met teach- 
ers of northern schools who ] ossessed pitiable and 
profound ignorance of Lanier, Timrod, Joel Chand- 
1 r Harris, Paul Hamilton Hayne, and other south- 
ern writers. And, pray, where are Americans, either 
north or south, to study fully southern authors ? 

No American can know American literature and 
American history unless he knows southern literature 
and southern history, which are essentially American. 
It is absurd to expect institutions out of the South 
to treat the subjects justly and adequately. Let 
Carolina strengthen her graduate departments in 
English and History, and she will add to her fame 
and worth as a true American University. 
Very sincerely yours, 

Geo. P. Wilsox. '13. 
University of Indiana, Bloomington, Ind. 



"WEALTH AND WELFARE IN N. C." 

Shutting its eyes to the war for a moment, the 
North Carolina Club of the State University offers 
as a New Year gift its Year Book, entitled "Wealth 
and Welfare in North Carolina." Other states have 
their Know-Your-Home-State clubs, but none are 
more enterprising than this one. The Year Book is 
not a volume of statistics. It is a record and inter- 
pretation of history in the making, economic, educa- 
tional, and social. But the real task of the Club is 
to get the contents of the book into the heads and 
hearts of the people of the State. The chapter on 
What the State Does with the Taxpayer's Dollar 
ought to be read by at least every taxpayer. Too 
Little Live Stock in North Carolina will have a nar- 
rower appeal. Study of local history usually means 
gathering curious items out of the dim past and ex- 
amining them with the interest of an antiquary. The 
method represented in this Year Book need not in- 
terfere with that pleasant occupation, while it can 
hardly help making the present more worthy of the 
attention of the future. — New York Evening Post.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



ALUMNI HOLD BANQUET AT CHARLOTTE 

Sixty alumni of tbe University of North Carolina, 
most of whom were here for the sessions of the Tench- 
ers' Assembly, were present for a banquet service 
in the tea room of the Y. W. C. A. cafeteria Friday 
evening. 

The toastmaster was Dr. J. Y. Joyner, state super- 
intendent of public instruction, and Dr. Edward K. 
Graham, president of the University, was the guest 
of honor. Dr. Graham made a talk, in which he dis- 
cussed the effect of the war on education and the part 
the schools, and particularly the State University, 
are playing in military training. 

Clem G. Wright, of Greensboro, made a talk in 
which he urged the building of a new hotel at Chapel 
Hill, and the alumni present voted approval of his 
suggestions, and took steps to make them take form. 

Other speakers included T. W. Andrews, superin- 
tendent of Salisbury schools; A. T. Allen, retiring 
president of the Teachers' Assembly and connected 
with the state department of education at Raleigh; 
E. H. Moser, superintendent of the Selma schools; 
Alexander Graham, of Charlotte; Lieut. Paul Fcn- 
ner, of the U. S. Coast Artillery, stationed at Fort 
Caswell ; N. W. Walker, professor of secondary edu- 
cation at the State University and State high school 
inspector, also the new president of the Teachers' 
Assembly. 

Dr. J. Y. Joyner closed the banquet with a toast 
to the University. — Charlotte Observer, Dec. 1, 1917. 



CLASS OF 1908 ISSUES BULLETIN 
The class of 190S has just issued through Secre- 
tary Jas. A. Gray, Jr., its tenth annual bulletin. The 
bulletin goes forward, it is stated in the foreword, 
with the hope "that it may serve both the interests 
of the class and more especially the interests of the 
University. For both of these purposes to be more 
satisfactorily fulfilled, it is hoped that every mem- 
ber of the class will begin making arrangements now 
to attend the tenth year reunion at Chapel Hill in 
June, 1918." 

Thirty-five members of the class have married 
since graduation and are the fathers of an aggregate 
of 43 children. Two marriages occurred during 1917 
and eight children were born in that year. North 
Carolina furnished 17 brides, Pennsylvania 2, and 
Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Mon- 
tana, New York, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and 
West Virginia furnished one bride each. Thirty-six 
members live in North Carolina, four are in the U. 
S. Army, 3 in Virginia, 2 each in Alabama and Penn- 
sylvania. Texas, District of Columbia, Georgia, 
Montana, New Mexico, West Virginia, Maryland 



and New York claim one man each. Fourteen mem- 
bers are teachers, and 10 are lawyers. Four mem- 
bers are engaged in insurance, 4 in manufacturing, 
and 4 are in the U. S. Army. Three are engineers 
3 agriculturists, and 3 sales representatives. Two 
are bankers and two are chemists. The vocations of 
medicine, journalism, merchandising, the ministry, 
and the judgeship have one member each. Fifty-five 
graduates are living. Two have died since gradua- 
tion. 



NEW ALUMNI OFFICERS 

Among Carolina men who have recently received 
commissions in military service of the Government 
are: C. K. Burgess, 2nd Lieutenant, Camp Sevier, 
Greenville, S. C. ; L. L. Shamburger, 2nd Lieuten- 
ant, Camp Sevier, Greenville, S. C. ; Dr. Wortham 
Wyatt, 1st Lieutenant, M. E. C, Camp Greenleaf, 
Fort Oglethorpe, Ga. ; Waine Archer, 1st Lieuten- 
ant, 37th U. S. Infantry, Laredo, Texas; Drury M. 
Phillips, 1st Lieutenant, Aviation Section, Elling- 
ton Field, Houston, Texas. Lieuts. Archer and 
Phillips received commissions from the training 
camp at Leon Springs, Texas. J. S. Cansler has 
been promoted from 2nd Lieutenant in the coast 
artillery to 1st lieutenant and is stationed at Fort 
Caswell. 



FROM CAMP BEAUREGARD 

Dear Dr. Graiiam : 

I am gratified to learn that the University is hav- 
ing a prosperous year in spite of conditions brought 
about by the war. I am always interested in Caro- 
lina and her good work and I feel quite sure that her 
part in this time of national need, and I might say 
national awakening, will in every particular be sec- 
ond to that of no other educational institution in the 
country. It seems to me that the ideals to which 
Carolina has always given expression peculiarly fit in 
with the high purpose of this country and her allies 
to make the world "safe for democracy." 

With kindest personal regards, 

Sincerely yours, 

LOWRY AxLEY, '13.

J. E. LATTA DEAD 

Friends of J. E. Latta, '99, of Chicago, were 
shocked to learn of his death from pneumonia in 
Washington, D. C, on January 17th. Mr. Latta 
formerly served the University in the capacity of

professor of Electrical Engineering. More recently 
he had been connected with the Underwriters (elec- 
trical) Laboratories, of Chicago. Since graduation 
he was secretary of the class of 1899. 

The funeral services were held in Durham at the 
Second Baptist church on Saturday, January 19th. 
Professors H. M. Wagstaff (his classmate) and M. 
H. Stacy, and J. S. Carr, Jr., president of the class 
of 1899, served as pall bearers, and Rev. W. D. 
Moss, of the Presbyterian church of Chapel Hill, 
assisted in the service. Interment was in Maple- 
wood cemetery. 



VARSITY BASEBALL 

Though it is a little difficult at this time to make 
any definite statements concerning the baseball sea- 
son for this spring, because of unsettled conditions, 
Manager G. D. Holding, of the Carolina Varsity, is 
going ahead with his plans and the indications now 
are that an attractive schedule will be arranged. Tt 
cannot be said now what differences the University 
military training will make in the plans this year. 

In spite of difficulties in securing attractive games 
in the north this year, Manager Holding is trying 
to arrange an attractive northern trip, so as to play 
Virginia on Easter Monday and the following schools 
on the same trip, during Easter week: Washington 
and Lee, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton, Col- 
lege of the City of New York, and Columbia Uni- 
versity. This would give the team two games in 
New York City. Tbe manager is also in correspond- 
ence with several of the State colleges and near-by 
southern colleges and universities. 

The basketball season will get under way immedi- 
ately after examinations. Two games were played 
with the Durham "Y" before the holidays in which 
the team made a good showing, and revealed some 
real ability. Charles Tennent, star guard of last 
year and brother of Paby Tennent, last year's cap- 
tain, is captain of this year's quint. Grandin, Liip- 
fert, Carmichael, Lynch, Gwyn, Hodges and Cuth- 
bertson are showing up well. All of these, except- 
ing Lipfert and Carmichael, were on the squad last 
year. The latter two have made good records in 
high school, the former at Winston-Salem and the 
latter at Durham. Other freshmen are showing up 
well. The schedule follows: 

Jan. 31, Emory and Henry at Chapel Hill. 

Feb. 2, V. M. I. at Richmond. 

Feb. 4, Guilford at Greensboro. 

Feb. 5, Davidson at Winston. 

Feb. 6, University of Georgia at Chapel TTilL 

Feb. 7, Eastern College of Virginia at Chapel Hill. 

Feb. 11, Elon at Chapel Hill. 



Feb. 12, Roanoke College at Chapel Hill. 

Feb. 13, Bingham (Mebane) at Chapel Hill. 

Feb. 14, Durham Y. M. C. A. at Chapel Hill. 

Feb. 15, Elon at Greensboro. 

Feb. 1G, Washington and Lee at Danville. 

Feb. 18, Lynchburg Athletic Club at Lynchburg. 

Feb. 22, Guilford at Chapel Hill. 

Feb. 27, Davidson at Chapel Hill. 

Virginia has recently started basketball again, and 
games with her at Raleigh and Charlottesville are 
pending. 



MILITARY ORGANIZATION 

Interest continues unabated in the military work 
now being conducted at the University under the di- 
rection of Capt. J. Stuart Allen, P. P. C. L. I. The 
whole battalion has recently stood military examina- 
tions, and a special examination was given for the 
officers. Regular drill will be resumed after exami- 
nations. 

Captain Allen has outlined many special courses 
for the spring term. During February the men will 
specialize in certain departments, as in the army. 
These special fields are bayonet-fighting, bombing, 
musketry, signalling, military engineering, etc. Reg- 
ular drill, trench warfare and manual of arms will 
still continue for all. 

A r/ifle range is to be constructed soon, and there 
will be abundant practice in firing on the range. The 
University now has 50 of the latest model Springfield 
rifles, with ammunition. In addition it has 250 
guns of an old model, used in the manual of arms. 
Prof. T. F. Hickerson will be in charge of the course 
in military engineering. Captain Allen will con- 
tinue his interesting lectures on the special problems 
of the war, life at the front, raids, attacks and other 
necessary parts of modern warfare.

W. T. BOST BECOMES EDITOR 

Feeling a deep interest in the future success of the 
State Journal, it is highly gratifying to know that I 
leave it in thoroughly competent hands. It has been 
leased to Mr. W. Thomas Bost, who assumes the 
editorship and entire management with this issue. 
Mr. Bost is already well known to the people through 



his contributions to the daily press, and needs no in- 
troduction. His vigorous and entertaining style 
has won for him a host of friends and given him 
high rank among the journalists of the State. His 
wide 'acquaintance and bis intimate knowledge of 
public affairs, as well as his thorough understand- 
ing of the traditions and ideals of our people, make 
him well qualified to edit this paper. He will give it 
new life and increased vigor and we look for a great 
increase in its influence and usefulness. I earnestly 
solicit for him the cordial patronage and support 
which I believe he will merit. — Alex J. Feild.

W. S. WILSON NEW STATE LIBRARIAN 

Mr. W. S. Wilson, Legislative Reference Libra- 
rian, has recently been appointed by the trustees of 
the State Library, acting librarian, without salary, to 
serve until the next session of the General Assembly, 
when an effort will be made to co-ordinate all the 
library facilities of the State under one head. The 
action of the trustees followed the resignation of Mr. 
Alex J. Feild as State Librarian to take up a posi- 
tion to which he has been appointed in Washington, 
D. C. 

The trustees of the Library, including Governor 
Bickett, are definitely committed to the plan of co-or- 
dinating under one control the State Library, the 
Legislative Reference Library, and the State Library 
Commission. The necessary authority for this must 
come through the Legislature. 



COL. ALEX FIELD GOES ON THE SHIPPING BOARD 

Col. Alex Feild, editor of the Slate Journal and 
State Librarian, has been appointed to an important 
place on the shipping board and has accepted the 
honor. 

His new position pays a salary larger than the 
combined revenue of editor and Librarian. His 
journal will live on. 

Colonel Feild was private secretary to Governor 
Kitchin and had been secretary prior to the state 
democratic executive committee. He is a lawyer 
by profession. 



DR. ROYSTER GOES TO NAVY DEPARTMENT 

Dr. J. F. Royster, professor of English at the 
University of Texas and formerly of the University, 
was recently a visitor on the campus. During the 
war he will have work in the Intelligence Bureau of 
the Navy. 



DORTCH MAJOR OF INFANTRY 

James T. Dortch, of the class of 1901, is a major 
of infantry in the National Army and is stationed 
at Camp Pike, Arkansas, with the 87th Division. He 
is personnel officer. Major Dortch attended the of- 
ficers training camp held at Fort Logan H. Roots, 
Arkansas, last summer, and is by profession a law- 
yer located in Oklahoma City. 



THE RANGE FINDER APPEARS 

Students in Dr. Greenlaw's class in higher compo- 
sition, English 21, have recently published a very 
attractive paper, in which is published some of the 
best work of members of the class. It attempts to 
indicate the attitude of the college man toward the 



war and the problems it has aroused. The paper, 
known as the Range Finder, is made up very attrac- 
tively, somewhat in the style of the New Republic. 
It is the purpose of the class to publish another num- 
ber during the spring. It has already been cordially 
received by the student body. Members of the class 
sold 350 copies on the street and campus the night 
of publication. 



FROM NEW YORK 

Editor., The Review: 

Sik: Amid a plethora of publications which come 
to my desk, The Review is one that is always eagerly 
seized and either read on the instant or carefully laid 
aside. I like its editorial poise, its sane perspective. 
It gives the atmosphere of "The Hill." I know of 
no publication which outranks it in its field. With 
best wishes for the New Year, I am, 

Yours sincerely,

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 



The atomic weight of a chemical element is a con- 
stant whose determination is of fundamental impor- 
tance. The value is a relative one, being referred to 
hydrogen as the standard. Hydrogen is extremely 
light (note its use for balloons) and it has been 
agreed to call its atomic weight one. The atomic 
weight of copper is 65, which merely means that the 
atom of copper is equal in weight to 65 atoms of 
hydrogen. Although the investigation of atomic 
weights has been under way for over a century, the 
goal of complete accuracy is far from reached, and 
values are constantly being changed. These changes 
are however usually very small. An international 
committee, representing America, England, Germany 
and France, makes an annual report in which the in- 
vestigations on atomic weights are carefully consider- 
ed and new values are adopted where the research is 
of a suffciently rigid character to justify it. The re- 
quirements of success in atomic weight determina- 
tions are severe since it is very difficult to prepare 
the necessary compounds in a perfectly pure condi- 
tion. New methods of attack are required and this 
usually involves the invention of new forms of appa- 
ratus. 

The recent publication of "The Atomic Weight of 
Zirconium" in The Journal of the American Chemi- 
cal Society by Professor Venable, with whom was 
associated Professor Bell, is particularly interesting, 
since the change proposed in the atomic weight is 
strikingly large. The accepted value of the atomic 
weight of Zirconium for many years has been 90.6. 
The new value proposed is 91.76 which calls for a 
change of 1.16. The changes made in the figures for 
the well known elements are far smaller as a rule. 



An example may be found in that of sulfur which 
was changed in 1915 from 32.07 to 32.06 or a change 
of only 0.01. No idea can be given in this brief 
notice of the difficulties that had to be surmounted be- 
fore the authors felt justified in proposing this new 
value for Zirconium. The invention of several forms 
of electrical apparatus was a very important factor 
in reaching the 2'oal. 



Augustus W. Long, '85, for a dozen or more years 
a member of the faculty of Princeton University, has 
just published (D. C. Heath & Co., New York) a 
volume of American. Patriotic Prose with notes and 
biographies, for use in schools. It begins with pio- 
neer days, and comes down to President Wilson's fa- 
mous war message of April 2, 1917. 

Among the selections which will particularly in- 
terest North Carolinians is one by the late White- 
law Reid on the Scotch-Irish element in American 
life. Mr. Reid dwells pointedly upon the settlement 
in North Carolina and discusses the Mecklenburg 
Declaration with sympathy. The part taken by the 
Scotch-Irish at the battle of King's Mountain is also 
stressed. 

Another selection which will interest Carolina 
men is an extract from a Memorial Day address of 
the late Major Charles M. Busbee, of Raleigh. 

Near the end of the volume are to be found selec- 
tions from the addresses — in some cases the addresses 
are given in full — of President Wilson, Mr. Cleve- 
land, Mr. Roosevelt, Mr. Root, Mr. Choate, Dr. 
Charles William Eliot, Dr. Lyman Abbott, and 
many others. 

The section of the book which will probably strike 
the eye first is entitled "Gallant Youth." "It is 
especially inspiring," says the New York Evening 
Sun, "because of the vividness with which it presents 
the ideals and the sacrifices of the youths who have 
given their lives for their country in its time of 
need." 



Professor Edwin Greenlaw, of the English Depart- 
ment, has recently been to Washington where he con- 
ferred with the educational council of the National 
Red Cross. Dr. Greenlaw read a paper before the 
Council. The idea of the Lafayette Association, 
which Dr. Greenlaw originated, has been of interest 
to Red Cross leaders, and some of its principles will 
be embodied in the Junior Red Cross work through- 
out the country. 



The organizers of Epsilon Phi Delta, a society 
formed this year at the University for the study of 
the Japanese-American problem, have recently been

greatly honored by one of the leading newspapers of 
Japan, which has taken official notice of this step 
towards better understanding between the two peo- 
ples. The Hoshu Shinpo Sho, of Oita, Japan, has 
awarded attractive medals to John S. Terry, Kamei- 
chi Kato, Earl Marsh, William M. York and Hennas 
Stephenson. These medals are given in Japan to 
only those who have performed some signal servica 
of one kind or another. 



THE SOUTH IS AROUSED 

The South as a section was not as bellicose in the 
earlier stages of the war 'as the New England States 
were. But on the other hand never has it had many 
pacifists; and the relative purity of its white race 
stock — either Anglo-Celtic or French (as in Louisia- 
na) — has not given to either its urban or its rural 
communities any of the difficult problems of preserv- 
ing peace and detecting treason that officials and cit- 
izens of states in the mid-west have been facing. 
Now that the war is on with the United States as a 
mighty partner, the South is aroused ; and from that 
region are coming examples which may well be imi- 
tated in the North. 

University War-Work 

Thus the University of North Carolina has quick- 
ly adjusted its extension department so that centers 
are being established, where students in communities 
in all parts of the State will have a choice between 
one or all of the following subjects of study : Theo- 
ries of State, Europe since 1S15, South American 
relations, political idealism in British and Ameri- 
can literature, economic and social aspects of th6 
war, and the war as reflected in recent literature. 
Correspondence courses, using a newly combined 
book called American Ideals, are being worked out 
for the benefit of isolated individuals who are or 
should be patriots. The University library, aided 
by the faculty, is distributing to all applicants infor- 
mation as to books and articles on special subjects 
relating to the war, and is sending forth literature 
in pamphlet form, acting as a distributing agency 
for the federal government and for the many spe- 
cial patriotic societies that have their propaganda 
headquarters in the large northern publishing cen- 
ters. In addition to this, members of the faculty 
are writing special articles for the press of the State, 
and are seeing to it that people influential in their 
local communities receive bulletins covering latest 
developments in the politics and economics of the 
war. 

Lafayette Associations 
Last but not least, through the Lafayette Associa- 
tions, made up of parents and of youth in the educa- 



tional institutions of the State, including the public 
schools, the school is being made the community cen- 
ter for "nourishing, developing and crystallizing, 
through expression, the national spirit of present and 
future America." In other words the school house is 
to be to the North Carolina of today and of tomorrow 
what the town meeting and town house have been to 
New England for generations. The choice of the 
name of Lafayette for this ramifying educational 
movement hardly needs explanation, but it is none 
the less admirable because so obvious and commenda- 
ble. 

North Carolina's example, if followed by the South 
generally, will have a reflex influence on the social 
structure of that region which will be incalculable. 
The educator and the school, whether the teacher be 
white or black and the pupils Caucasian or Negro, 
will rise to a higher plane of importance in the com- 
munity life through this particular form of patriotic 
service at a crucial hour in national life; and with 
the crisis past, community life never again will be as 
it was. — The Christian Science Monitor. 



CAROLINA AT THE TEACHERS ASSEMBLY 

Carolina alumni and members of the faculty of 
the University took a prominent part in the thirty- 
fourth annual session of the North Carolina Teachers' 
State Assembly which was held in Charlotte Novem- 
ber 2S-30. Mr. A. T. Allen, of the State board of 
examiners and institute conductors, presided at the 
general meetings as president of the Assembly. Dr. J. 
Y. Joyner presided over the meetings of the State As- 
sociation of County Superintendents. Prof. N. W. 
Walker presided over the conference of public high 
school principals. Miss Eleanor Watson, of Salis- 
bury, made the response to the address of welcome. 
Governor T. W. Bickett and President E. K. Graham 
were speakers on patriotic night. Among those pre- 
senting papers were : Prof. N. W. Walker, of the 
University faculty; Supt. F. M. Harper, of Baleigh; 
Supt. Joe R. Nixon, of Cherryville ; Mr. W. W. Ran- 
kin, Jr., of the University faculty; Dr. G. A. Harrer, 
of the University faculty; President W. C. Riddick, 
of the State College of Agriculture and Engineering; 
Mr. L. C. Brogden, of the State department of edu- 
cation. 

Mr. N. W. Walker, '03, professor of secondary 
education in the University and director of the 
Summer School, was elected president of the As- 
sembly for the ensuing year. Mr. E. E. Sams, '98, 
of the State department of education, Raleigh, was 
re-elected secretary. Supt. H. P. Harding, of the

ALUMNI MEETINGS 

The Review records herewith accounts of the various meet- 
ings which were held by alumni associations on December 
28th in accordance with the letter sent to the alumni before 
the holidays by President Connor, of the General Alumni As- 
sociation : 

ASHEVILLE 

The Asheville alumni and students of the University held 
their second annual gathering and dinner at the Battery Park 
hotel on Friday evening, December 28th. The students who 
spoke presented University life eloquently and with much 
spirit. The new officers pledged themselves to carry on the 
work of the alumni association with all possible strength and 
energy during the coming year. Haywood Parker, '87, of 
the law firm of Bourne, Parker and Morrison, a member of 
the board of trustees, was elected president of the associa- 
tion, and Harry Howell, '95, superintendent of the city 
schools, was ejected secretary. The gathering and dinner was 
an enjoyable affair and has proved stimulating to University 
endeavor in Asheville. 

DURHAM 

A largely attended banquet of the Durham County Alumni 
Association was held on the evening of December 28th at the 
Malbourne hotel, Durham. General Julian S. Carr was host to 
the University gathering, and arrangements for the banquet 
were made by General Carr and President W. D. Carmichael, 
of the association. Prof. H. H. Williams, of the chair of 
philosophy in the University, was principal speaker. He pre- 
dicted the utter destruction of the German ideal, saying that 
"The day after this war started I remarked to a friend that 
the Kaiser might just as well pack his grip for St. Helena." 
Absolutism cannot win the great struggle, said Prof. Wil- 
liams, since it fights the very structure of life itself. Prof. 
Williams was followed by Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, of the chair 
of English in the University, who made a humorous talk. 

Others who made talks were: Rev. W. D. Moss, of the 
Chapel Hill Presbyterian church; Chief Justice Walter Clark, 
of Raleigh, president of the Wake County Alumni Associa- 
tion; Marion Powler, a graduate of the University and now a 
student in the University Law School; and Prof. E. C. Brooks, 
who brought a greeting from Trinity. The banquet and gath- 
ering was one of the most notable in the history of the Dur- 
ham County Association. 

GASTONIA 

The Gaston County Alumni Association and the Gaston 
County Club of the University held a joint smoker in the audi- 
torium of the Graded school building at Gastonia on the even- 
ing of December 28th. The meeting was one of the most enjoy- 
able in the history of the association and the county club. 



Supt. Joe S. Wray, of the city schools, presided as president of 
the association. Talks were made by A. G. Mangum, who is a 
member of the board of trustees of the University, Joe R. 
Nixon, A. E. Woltz, Miss Louisa Reid, John G. Carpenter, Joe 
S. Wray, E. R. Rankin, Ray Armstrong, R. M. Johnston, Jr., 
Leonard Thomas, and Ralph McClurd. 

The high school seniors of the county were present as 
guests. Joe R. Nixon was appointed on a special committee 
with the secretary to keep records of all members of the as- 
sociation or county club entering military service. 

Officers were elected as follows: President, Joe S. Wray, 
'97; Vice-President, Joe R. Nixon, '10; Secretary, E. R. Ran- 
kin, '13. 

MARION 

The alumni and students of the University living in Mc- 
Dowell County held an enjoyable banquet at the Marianna 
Hotel, Marion, from six until eight o'clock on the evening of 
December 28th. Supt. S. L. Sheep, of the city schools, pre- 
sided, and speeches were made by R. L. Greenlee, L. J. P. Cutlar 
and Mr. Sheep. This banquet was the first which the Mc- 
Dowell alumni and students have had. Plans were made to 
push forward University endeavor in all lines in McDowell 
County. 

SMITHFIELD 

The Johnston County alumni of the University held their 
annual banquet in Smithfield, December 28th, with Albert M. 
Coates, president of the Johnston County club, acting as toast- 
master. 

The principal speaker was Francis F. Bradshaw, of Hills- 
boro, who brought the University spirit in one of the best 
speeches the alumni had listened to in a long time. He pic- 
tured the University activities under the stress of war, told 
of the growth of her services and her hope for the future, 
and of the opportunity of the alumni to share in that future. 
He was followed by J. L. Stuckey one of the successful young 
men who went out from the University before he had finished 
his senior year to take charge of a limestone plant in Ten- 
nessee. Judge F. H. Brooks, and Hon. J. A. Wellons re- 
sponded in splendid style ; and the ladies present testified 
their approval of the University 's recent action in extending 
wider educational facilities to women. 

The attendance at the banquet was the largest it had ever 
been.

— 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 

fortune. 
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 

dollars." 

— In the vulgar vernacular: Carpe diem; or as the classic Roman hath it: Do it 
now!
