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.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
THE MATTER OF
In its last issue The Review expressed its opin-
ion that 1917 was the Great Year in Carolina's his-
tory. It was so tremendous-
ly important to Carolina
that The Review awaited
with eagerness the full report of the President (con-
taining the reports of the deans and officers of the
University) to see what plans the various schools,
officers, etc., had in view for the immediate future.
Now that the report is in hand and has heen care-
fully read, it confesses that it is considerably disap-
pointed — the reports are reports, and as such (with
several exceptions) look to the past without recom-
mendations for the future.
For information of the alumni, The Review car-
ries elsewhere the more important recommendations
made for the consideration of the President and Trus-
tees. It does it for the double reason of informing
the alumni as to what new developments within the
University are contemplated and of inviting their
suggestion relative to other developments. Carolina
stands at the door of a new future and she needs the
wise co-operation of every one who can assist her in
making it rich and distinctive.
An announcement made through the State Board
of Health centers attention on a subject which
The Review is pleased to see
the University begin to give
adequate consideration — public
health propaganda and the further development on
the campus among the students of a modern public
The announcement referred to is that during the
year the State Board of Health, the University co-
operating, will conduct in Raleigh a school of public
health nursing. As The Review understands it, the
University, through its faculty, has offered to put at
the disposal of the State Board of Health such lec-
turers as may further the purposes of the proposed
school. At present there are some sixty-five trained
nurses in the State who are employed by various coun-
ties in the capacity of public health nurses. The ob-
ject of the proposed school is rapidly to increase this
number. The idea is a splendid one and The Re-
view rejoices that the University is heartily support-
Among the recommendations offered, several are
of such interest to The Review as to call for special
notice here. The first is that
^?lli L J^Z 0L of the Dean of the Medical
ENLARGEMENT c , , ,,. , ., ,,...
bchool calling for the addition
of a professor of Biological Chemistry, an associate
professor of Pathology, and an assistant professor of
Anatomy. With these additions made, a reorgani-
zation or readjustment within the school is recom-
mended, and the prayer is made that considerable
apparatus, lanterns, slides, models, etc., and increased
library facilities, be provided.
Here something definite in the line of growth and
advancement is asked, and The Review frankly
Co-operation with the State Board of Health in
the matter referred to above will be a step in the di-
rection of developing the modern
ICAL Di°R T ECTOR' D ' PUblic Lealth consciousliess of the
student body. The Review, how-
ever offers the suggestion that the time has come when
the University should take the further step, in connec-
tion with the plans submitted by the Dean of the
Medical School, of employing a Medical Director,
one of whose duties would be to cultivate this con-
With the increased student body during the regu-
lar term and the necessity of keeping the Infirmary
open during the Summer School, provision might
well be made for such a Director to have charge of
the Infirmary and to be physician to the students
throughout the whole year and, in addition, to act
as public health officer of the University.
The Review doesn't feel competent to outline ful-
ly the precise duties of such a Director; but it does
see how such an officer could well have supervision of
all health matters which relate to the housing, eating
quarters, milk supply, laundry, etc., of the student
body. Again it can see how such a Director might,
through chapel talks, lectures and other means sup-
plementary to those now employed by members of
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
the Medical School, impress upon the individual that
it is not only his duty to keep well himself, but that
he must work intelligently for the health of his neigh-
bors and community as well.
The thought behind all of the foregoing is: under
present conditions (once, but no longer necessary)
John Smith, upon graduation, goes to Smithville to
be principal or superintendent of schools or some-
thing else as important. Heretofore, when he has
been called upon to apply intelligent, modern public
health standards to his school or community, he
hasn't been fully competent to do it. Hereafter, he
must be, or the University will be failing to equip
him in a most vital manner.
A second recommendation, made by the Dean of
the College of Liberal Arts, should be carried out at
the earliest opportunity possi-
ble^ — the building of iu student
union similar to those found on
many campuses which would make possible a gen-
eral participation on the part of all the students in
some sort of social life.
The Y. M. C. A. building has served this purpose
in so far as it could. But it was built in 1904 out
of very limited funds, and now that the student
body is practically twice as large as it was in 1904
and parts of the building have had to be taken over
for the use of the co-operative book store, the build-
ing entirely fails to provide the home social facilities
which every student should enjoy.
In this connection The Review remembers that
some four or five years ago the Y. M. C. A. was un-
der favorable consideration as the prospective recip-
ient of a building adequate to care for such needs
as those indicated, provided the application for the
erection of such a building came through the Board
of Trustees rather than the Advisory Board of the
Association. In the meeting of the Board of Trus-
tees the proposition met with opposition because it
was feared the source of the gift might prove detri-
mental to the purity of (economic) thought on the
campus and it was suggested that means for secur-
ing the building might be secured elsewhere — with
the result that the condition mentioned above has
existed from that day to this.
Another recommendation from President Gra-
ham's individual report is of particular interest in
view of the searchlight which has
,IES been turned upon the physical
make-up of the American young
the examination for military service.
All America has been astounded to find that so large
a per cent of the young men who responded to the
draft have been found physically unfit and turned
down. President Graham's recommendation is that
great emphasis shall be laid in the future upon an
athletic program which shall secure the participation
in athletics of every student. The Review notes
that the same suggestion is embodied in the recent
resolutions of the National Inter-collegiate Athletic
Association and by Secretary Baker in an address
relating to student athletic activities.
last month The Review urged alumni to rally to
the cause of keeping well-paid teachers in the school
room. It did not attempt to give any
m ' method of financing the proposition,
SOLUTION , . .. , , ,, ° .5*. • '
but it snowed the necessity ot main-
taining the schools at highest efficiency.
Charles L. Coon, superintendent of the schools of
the city and county of Wilson, has found the right
solution of the matter by leading town and county to
vote school bonds and county taxes respectively to
meet the requirements of the day — and to do it for
seven months in the year for the entire county, in-
stead of four as provided for at present by the State
This method goes to the root of the matter, and
if adopted in every county, will wipe out the stigma
attaching to North Carolina public education on ac-
count of the short terms and starvation salaries. It
is a remedy which has the power to effect a cure,
whether the constitutional amendment providing for
a six months term passes or not. '

TAR HEEL PASSES ITS TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY
Founded in 1893, This Lively Campus Paper Completes Its First Quarter of a Century
February 23, 1893, was the natal day of our lively
contemporary, The Tar Heel. Whether its present
enterprising editors celebrate its silver (25th) anni-
versary or not, The Eeview is going to turn aside
from campus activities and the war long enough to
wish it many happy returns of the day and to be
reminiscent in so far as the inclusion here of extracts
from the first issue can give a reminiscent flavor.
The Foreword and Salutatory which follow set
forth the plans of the founders:
The growing demands of the University have
shown the need of a weekly paper. The University
Athletic Association, regarding itself as the means
by which such a need could be supplied, at a stated
meeting elected a board of editors (chief and five
subs) and a business manager.
With this apology only, the first issue of the first
volume of the Tar Heel makes its appearance.
This new venture is necessarily entered upon by
the present board with no little trepidation, neverthe-
less with a determination, to make a success which
can only be done through the indulgence and assist-
ance of our faculty and fellow-students. Therefore
we invite honest criticism and any aid in the advance-
ment of this new project will be thoroughly appre-

The Editors and Managers
The Review notes with considerable interest that
its (The Review's) first managing editor and sen-
ior editor on its present staff, Walter Murphy, was
also the first managing editor of the Tar Heel. The
editorial board in its entirety was: Charles Basker-
ville, editor-in-chief; Walter Murphy, managing ed-
itor; A. H. McFadyen, business manager; A. V.
Ellis, W. P. Wooten, Perrin Busbee and J. C. Biggs,
In Re the Magazine
Quite naturally one of the first editorials related
to the Magazine of which the Tar Heel entertained
the following opinion:
The University Magazine has not hitherto been a
magazine, but one half of it has usually been filled
with local happenings and current gossip — such was
not as it should be. The Magazine should be more
literary in its character and free from those lighter
things in which only newspapers indulge. But there
must be some channel through which such can escape
and the Magazine offered the only channel, until the
establishment of the Tar Heel, which now proposes
to relieve the Magazine of such, with the hope that
we will see more true literary material, more book
reviews, more thoughtful editorials, etc., fill the

OLD-FASHIONED WEATHER AGAIN
The state of the weather has recently been very
much to the fore as a subject of conversation, and
comment has gone back to the blizzard of February,
1899 — to those happy days of open (wood) fires in
all the dormitories and big round-girthed coal stoves
in the class rooms. Some sixteen inches of snow lay
on the ground and the wind, to judge from the fol-
lowing editorial and news note (Tar Heel, Feb. 17),
evidently whistled pretty shrilly:
"There is a great complaint these days about the
failure to get wood when ordered. Especially at this
time when the weather is so severe do we think that
these orders ought to be attended to immediately
even if extra work has to be brought in to fulfill them.
It is said that there are some twenty-odd orders for
wood in the box at the power house and so many
men had to wait over Sunday without wood in this
cold cutting weather. A man's health is worth a
good deal to him and he does not wish to have it in-
jured by having to sleep in and stay in a room which
is as cold as the wind on the outside. It seems that
since the students were forced to get wood from the
authorities here, that surely the authorities ought to
devise some means by which wood can be delivered
to the students when ordered."
Seemingly there have been "heatless blue Mon-
"Owing to the heavy fall of snow, no trains left
here on Monday. Consequently no mail was sent
away or received here before Tuesday afternoon."

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
AMERICAN UNIVERSITY UNION A SUCCESS
Letters from Alumni of Southern Instituions are Enthusiastic Over the Paris Headquarters
A letter from Charles Tillett, '09, to President
Graham, brings out the fact that a number of the
alumni do not fully understand what the American
University Union in Paris is and what its purposes
are. The Review has given information about it in
two previous issues, but inasmuch as many alumni
will soon be in France, and consequently have occa-
sion to use the Union, it undertakes to give fuller
What the Union Is
There are two big facts to get and keep in mind :
(1) That American colleges and universities have
secured in Paris a large modern hotel, placed it un-
der the control of a competent group of American
college administrators and secretaries, and set it
apart as headquarters for American college men
while on leave in Paris. It is the get-together place
of American college men when they are in Paris off
duty, and through it they can meet other men from
their own or other colleges.
Carolina is a Member
The second big fact for Carolina men is: (2)
That President Graham has paid the required fee
(some $250 or more) for the University's member-
ship in the Union, and although the University has
no special Carolina representative as secretary, and
although it has not established a separate U. N. C.
bureau in the Union, nevertheless it has full privi-
leges of which every Carolina man may avail him-
self. It is interesting to know also, that Carolina is
represented on the governing board by Secretary of
the Navy Daniels and President Graham.
The Union a Success
From letters from college men who have tried the
Union out, it has been successful beyond the hopes
of the men who originally planned it. Ninety col-
leges are connected with it, and it is running smooth-
ly. The charges for room and meals are very rea-
sonable. For further information the following
facts taken from a recent publication by the direc-
tors of the Union and a cut showing the location are
The members of the executive committee first
planned to secure a hotel in the residential section of
Paris between the Champs Elysees and the Bois, and
made tentative arrangements for such a hotel when
the increasing difficulties connected with the prob-
lem of transportation made it seem essential that
headquarters nearer the center of Paris be secured.

Concorde ; 12, Gare de Quai d 'Orsay.
Consequently, acting on the advice of the Advisory
Council in Paris, the Executive Committee unani-
mously recommended to the trustees to rent for the
period of the war the Royal Palace Hotel on the
Place du Theatre Francais. This hotel is at the head
of the Avenue de 1'Opera and near the Louvre and
the Tuileries Gardens. It is within a block of the
Palais Royal station of the "Metropolitain" — the
Paris subway, and accessible by all Avenue de 1'Opera
and Rue de Rivoli omnibuses.
The Royal Palace Hotel, built in 1911, has an ex-
cellent reputation and is under well established man-
agement. It faces south on an open square and ha3

hundred men, in addition to attractive public rooms
for reading and social purposes, and forty-two mod-
ern bath-rooms. There is an elevator, and every other
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
convenience. Each bedroom has running water, and
through the co-operation of the municipal authorities,
the Union is allowed to supply hot water daily, in-
stead of only twice a week, the usual war allowance.
At the entrance. 8 rue de Richelieu, an attractive
sign, "American University Union," replaces that of
the Royal Palace Hotel. At the desk are kept a
members' register and a visitors' book. In the for-
mer are registered all American college men, with
their college and class, degree (if any) or depart-
ment, military rank or form of service, home ad-
dress, and European address. In the latter are reg-
istered all guests with the names of the college men
who introduced them. Bulletin boards carry the
rules and regulations of the Union, information as to
barber, laundry, suit-pressing, mending, theater tick-
ets, French lessons, notices of college reunions, Union
entertainments, and similar matters of interest. A
canteen or small shop has been opened in the lobby
of the Union. It is open from noon to 9 :30 p. m.
The canteen carries books, toilet articles, flashlights,
stationery, tennis balls, chocolate, tobacco, etc. Teu-
nis rackets can also be rented.
Tariff of Charges
The restaurant has a high reputation and provides
luncheon for iy 2 francs, and dinner for 5Y 2 francs,
in addition to a very moderate priced petit dejeuner.
The pension for three meals is fixed at 10 francs.
Members who are on furlough in Paris for several
days can secure pension at from 15 francs a day up-
ward, everything included. A room for a single
night costs from 6 francs up, a room with bath 10
francs. These charges are in accordance with the
schedule adopted in October, 1917, and are subject
to slight modification if the executive committee finds
this necessary. In view of the high cost of supplies
in Paris, where anthracite coal sells at from $60 to
$70 a ton, the tariff will, it is believed, seem moder-
ate, especially as the franc is now the equivalent of
only 17% cents, and as no fees are expected or al-
lowed. To prevent the "tipping" nuisance a fixed
charge of 10 per cent is made on every bill for the
first week, and 7 per cent thereafter, this amount
being distributed among the servants.
The first floor and the entresol are used for the gen-
eral purposes of the Union, the separate college bu-
reaus being on the upper floors, visitors being assign-
ed as far as possible to bedrooms on the same floor
as the college bureau with which they are affiliated.
Writing tables and tables for chess and other games
have been placed in the petits salons on each floor op-
posite the elevator.
A special feature is made of the reading room and

Ambulance Driver in France
A Bord de "Rochambeau," June 27, 1917
This is the third night out on this old deep
blue wetness and I wish it were onlv the beiiinnins;.
Some life this. Never enjoyed many things more.
First let me tell you something- of the American
ambulance boys. There aren't but 250 of us on
board. The bunch as a whole are fine — a clean
bunch ; but they're all Yankees — I'm the only South-
erner, and I'm gradually deteriorating. . . .
We can have no lighted cigars on the deck at ninht
and must keep all port-holes closed tightly. Guess
we'll only be out seven more nights — then I can mail
this. We keep our guns trained on every vessel we
pass. We'll pick up a convoy for the last three days
— that is, if we are still above the surface.
21 Rue Raynouard, Palis, July 7, 1917
We arrived here Thursday, July 5, at 10:15 A.
M., after having ridden on the train from Bordeaux
for 12 hours. It was a very tiresome trip. We came
straight to 21 Rue Raynouard from the train and
had to stand in line for ten more to get fixed up.
This estate is one of the most magnificent in the
city. It was given by a countess for the service here.
It is a regular palace. There is an immense terrace
and garden behind. It is near the Eiffel tower and
on some famous stream. "Airyplanes" fly over this
place and it sounds like bees buzzing all the time.
This is certainly a place deserving the title of the
most beautiful city in the world — so far as I've seen
the world. Seems as if I've seen three spheres in the
last two weeks.
Guess I was able to get into the ambulance. I met
an ~N. C. man here who has much pull and could
drive both kinds of motors — -Fords and others. Also
he said my chemistry and zoology will help me in
that work. Can't tell you where "out there" I'll be

Paris, July 12, 1917
I guess I'm in France for a long time — perhaps
forever; but why should I worry? Unless the Am-
erican soldiers do some great scrapping, we'll have
at least five more years of it. Old man Sherman
was about right on this war proposition.
I believe the whole bunch are tired of fighting,
from what I hear here, but Germany is too d
obstinate to give up. She knows that France and
England will ruin her when it comes to the terms of
peace. America, Germany knows, will be lenient in
the peace. We are too forbearing, and are apt to
allow Germany to persist as a strong nation after the
war. You can't realize how the Germans are hated,
by being in the United States. You should be here
and hear the soldiers tell the ghastly stories of their
deeds. The French are learning to be cruel and
heartless on the field, too. The British hate the
Germans worse than the French do, and are hated
worse than the French by the Germans. The break
may come at any time. Germany will start giving in
all of a sudden and she is going to be crushed quick-
ly when the great crushing begins.
The other armies seem to be holding their own
and waiting for the Americans to show their stuff.
The Old Glory boys have already gone out and we
expect big things from them — everybody does. When
they begin, and if they are successful, it is believed
that will be the beginning of the end. Once tbe
Allemands are on their own soil they are done for.
I'm giving you the Paris dope. But if Germany
holds up against the U. S. boys — well, it's not less
than five years in France for us. That's a devil of a
thought, isn't it ?
Aeroplanes are flying over Paris at all times. Ev-
ery few minutes we hear them buzz overhead and
sometimes see three or four at a time. They are
guarding this city splendidly against air raids. There
have only been a few here. The system here seems
to be perfect.
Many wounded soldiers are in town — also a great
many Russians, British, French, Italians and Ethi-
opians on leave. But we don't see any Frenchmen,
except very old ones, in citizen's clothes. Women
are doing much of the heavy work now here. They
drive all the subways and surface cars, and then most
of them work hard at night too.
In the Battle-icious Country, Aug. 2, 1917
Since the declaration of war by the U. S. this
service isn't spared at all. We are shoved right un-
der the Boche trenches and we'll probably have to do
work in No Man's Land soon. Since joining this
section on July 14 I have not been out of range of
German guns. I've seen Boche trenches several
times and have been too d d near bursting shells
for comfort. There was an air raid near by three
nights ago and the bursting of the bomb shook this
building dreadfully. There are only about 500 in
this service and yet some one, or two, or three go
up every day. . . .
The other day Kinsolving (the Virginia man) and
I were bathing in a trough in the middle of a field
when shrapnel began bursting over us. One piece
fell just between us and we were close together. We
marathoned to the nearest shack. . . .
We roll at night, and over the darkest roads I've
ever seen, without lights. The roads are crowded
with traffic — supply wagons, troops, etc.
I had quite a scare last night. The bloody Ger-
mans dropped neatly printed pamphlets all around
here yesterday P. M., saying that they would make
a gas raid during the night — and even described
their gas; said it wouldn't be recognized by anyone
because it had never been used before and that the
bursting of the bombs couldn't be heard far away;
also that the new gas is practically odorless and one
can only tell of its presence by an itching in the
throat — and then it's too late to do anything. They
said also that they would send a second gas — un-
known and mysterious and with an odor like garlic.
(That, as you chemists know, is AsH 3 or some" other
compound of As.) Well, their gas ended with the
pamphlets. . . .
Do you know how long it is from the Kappa Sigma
house to Dr. Abernethy's ? Well, I've seen guns that
long. They're the damnedest things I ever saw. Some
say they don't fire shells — they just reach over into
the German lines, make one or two sweeps, and then
recoil back home. . . . When one of them
belches it sounds like the devil has jerked the plug
out of his prize noise chamber, and if you aren't
already flat on your back, you soon will be. The
air pressure from one of these explosions will slap
one down and make it hard to breathe. . . .
Convois Autos, par B. C. M., Paiis, Aug. 26, 1917
Exactly one week ago tonight, on the 19th of
August, our section, with the exception of five cars,
was called out (2nd battle of Verdun). I'll give you
my experiences — which are typical — some may have
had it worse, but I ran more than any other car.
Five of us were sent up to do evacuation work. We
worked like the devil there for about ten hours and
were then sent up just behind the lines. It was hot
there, and I tried to pray, only to learn I had for-
gotten how. The road was lined with dead horses,
smashed wagons, shell holes, and at one place there
were a pair of human legs that had lost their body
Every available inch of road was in use by cannon,
etc., and it sometimes would take over an hour be-
fore traffic would be unlocked enough to allow a
car to advance a few feet. It was dark when I made
the first nm to the furthest post. I ran constantly
"all the time" — no sleep yet and d — d little food.
The next morning the road became clear. A bunch
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of vehicles dared not use the route in daytime — we
had it to do — that's why I did it — and it was an un-
comfortable run. Those horses stayed there all the
time and they got to be disagreeable too. Then,
shrapnel got some more. Well, to make a long story

short, that kept up all along. I was relieved the last
day and was sent back to a safer point. There I had
the opportunity to sleep but was too tired to even
On my last run from that post I could see shells
landing along the road I had to go over. All the
time my car was being loaded I was watching those
puffs of mud, dust, etc., along that road from the cor-
ner of my eye. Was T scared ? Huh ? You guess. . .
I was sure glad and surprised when I reached the
end of that run alive. One of our men received the
Croix de Guerre and we may get a citation for the
whole section because of that run.
Convois Automobiles, par Paris, Sept. 23, 1917
Glad you know where I was — am still — will be
until Oct. 1. Only, we've been moved further up
and if they keep on shoving us up we'll be between
the Boche and Berlin. Yes, sir, it's rather warm in
this district; but the inconsiderate Boche gave us
h — for a while, and there was many a night that I
wished for the Magic Carpet to carry me back to
the presence of my friend "Froggy" Wilson. The
Deutschers have the most abominable habit of send-
ing these whizzers over to disturb us — and they do
that stunt. It's worse to have them after one than
to be hounded by Chief Long or Fendergraft. They
send over those big steel things that could easily pen-
etrate from the belfry of the old South building to
the basement. . .
Sept. 26 — Just came in last night after running
24 hours without stop. These Fords have good, solid
hardwood backs for seats and the hardness becomes
exaggerated after a while. . . . The couches are
strapped in when we do evacuation work, and the
throttle strapped down. And we roll these Fords,
too. The kilometer stones look like one solid stone
wall when we get on evacuation work and hit the
good road, but I've only hit them once since I've been
here — that was t'other night. The moon was bright,
the fields all snowy white with dust, and the cluds
gave the blueblack sky a becoming setting. Back
there was civilization — fields actually under cultiva-
tion (we ran 20 miles back that night), people wear-
ing civilian clothes (overalls), and women — women
and children, many of them, the women old, the
children young — the first ones I'd seen since July 14,
1917. . .
There's no glory, no chivalry, no gallantry in this
war. It's war against machinery ; the man has no
chance against the wads of powder, dynamite, nitro-
glycerine, gas and steel. He has no come-back — can't
fight the immediate dangers, but must stand still and
await his turn — wait until he's suffocated with arse-
nic, H 2 S, chlorine, or until he unfortunately happens
to be near an "arrive" when it bursts and a ragged
piece of steel sends him to kingdom come, or the
land of no worries. They only hope. They realize
that their efficiency doesn't count when the question
of who is next arises. The strong, intellectual man
is killed as soon as the weak, illiterate one. The
shells know no classification ; and the poor devils
know only that they fight because they must. None
know to what end they are striving — they only know
that they fight for France and to exterminate the
permanently damned Allemand. Still they fight.
They fight well, too — have had three years of hard,
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Same Old Address, Different Location, Oct. 6 or 7, 1917
This section has heen expecting "repose" for three
weeks but we'll hardly get it for ten days yet. We've
seen seven American sections come and go from
these parts — but we stay on forever. We've carried
more blesses during the past month than any other
section in the same length of time in the history of
the service. One man — a five-striper — told us that
we were the most efficient, most willing, and smooth-
est running section he'd ever seen. Two weeks ago
we loved to roll; but now are becoming tired. You
see, we work out there every 24 hours — sometimes.
I am just getting to the stage where I can make
myself understood by use of signs, gestures, English,
German, Yiddish and French, and can understand
the general meaning conveyed in a conversation, but
I have no idea about the grammatical construction. . .
You people never hear half of the war news, and
are hearing even less now since the American troops
are here. You ask me what is the matter over here.
When you read — "Slight artillery activity on the
right and left banks of the Meuse river," that means
a bunch of fighting, and we're catching it. Even
French newspapers never get the news. It is all kept
very close. . .
Three years now is the earliest date of the end as
thought by officers here. Let her go ! I'm in for the
whole game and personally don't care when it ends.
I seldom think of the end. I would like to see it end,
of course, for the sake of France and the American
army. . . .
Convois Autos, Jan. 7, 1918
It was colder than Chapel Hill this A. M. — 4 be-
low that mark. Now, 10 :29 P. M., it is as warm as
Key West and the ice is all thawing out. This "phe-
nom" is unusual and it occurs only very seldom. The
ground has been frozen tight since November, the
nights have been like Arctic nights and now in the
middle of the night it begins thawing. It is really
uncanny. . .
Christmas has come and gone. Outside of an extra
good meal and much champagne, it was no different
from all the others. The war had no holiday then —
nor did it knock off for New Year's day. Our posts
were operated as usual.
At present we are in a quiet sector and haven't
enough work to hurt us. As soon as the spring work
begins we will be thrown back into the mess. We
never know where we'll be within the next week.
This flivvering at night is no joke in cold weather
— especially when the snow makes every cow-path
look like a road. Once, in a snowstorm, the flakes
flew so fast and thick that I had to stop and wait for
the let-up. In our rooms we have fire places but sel-
dom have wood. The blankets feel mighty good and
all hate to leave them. We can all put on breeches
and shoes in record time now. When out on duty
we sleep in all of our clothes, wrapped up in blan-
kets from our ambulances. The Fords have to be
cared for like babies. . . .
I couldn't stand school any more while this mess
keeps up, and doubt if I'll ever go back into medicine.
School is too monotonous. Once the wanderlust en-
ters into one's system, it is hard to get rid of. Regu-
larity is too tiresome after this life of "ease". . .
The two oldest men fell in for the "non-com" jobs.
I've been made something — don't know what but will
find out soon, for I go to Paris to learn what I am
and what I do. Guess I'll leave in about two or three
days. . . .
Pershing won't let Americans in uniform go to
Paris but so far we haven't been denied that privi-
lege. . .
Reckon this fuss will be over by next September?
I don't think so. Very few over here think it will
finish up before then. Things are sure messed up.
Russia is worse than an Irish tenement in German-
town. China has good intentions and the Esquimos
are too far away. . . .
Fritz still has a stroke or two left in bis arm that
isn't shriveled. He may try one last spasm this spring.
That is wbat is generally expected. If he gets away
with it the game is liable to be played for some time.
If he misses out, then it's only a matter of time until
he is completely exhausted. If the war lasts much
longer without a German revolution, then somebody
else besides Russia will want to stop for a rest — and
will be willing to sign most any kind of a paper.
But Fritzie has a very strong shell. The interior
must be all mush. Once the people there get the fact
that a country can be had without their militarists
then she's going to blow up ; but they can't believe
in any other country's beer yet.
BY J. E. MILLS, Ph. D„ 1900
The following letter is from Dr. J. E. Mills,
n iw a captain in the 30th U. S. Engineers, Gas and
Flame Combat Service. Captain Mills is now "over
there" in all probability, as be sailed for France
the last week in December. It will be seen
from his letter that he is destined for the first line
trenches. On October 15 he was with Company 2, E.
0. R. T. C.j at the American University, Washing-
ton, D. C.
This camp is for Engineer officers only. Some
600 or 700 here. [ reached here on October 1st
with about 125 others and we are exepcted to catch
up as best we can with those who have been here in
training a month. Work almost continuous but quite
a bit of time given to study. The thing that im-
presses me most is the evident hurry of the training.
Also the absence of regular U. S. officers. Most must
already be in France. Of course there are a few,
but at the Camp and at the War College, and at
American University, evidently the Reserve Officers
have been used to the greatest extent possible. I came
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
here today by request to see Major Atkinson about
joining the 30th U. S. Engineers — Gas and Flame
Combat Service. If his organization is changed as
he desires he will request for me to be detailed to
the 30th Engineers. He says I must know how to
command 250 men though — in every way. It seems
an impossible job. Of course what they are after is
getting a few — only a very jew chemists on the firing
line able to report on needs — suggest improvements
and spot weak places in offense and defensive gas and
flame fighting so as to report back what is needed.
If I get into that service we will be the first com-
panies sent abroad for that service apparently.

Private, 218th Aero Squadron.
San Antonio, Texas, January 28th, 1918
I started to start this letter this morning when it
looked as if we would have a few minutes rest, but
the sergeants came along and rousted us out for
fatigue, so I never got time to write. Fatigue, as I
suppose you know, is the name work goes by in the
army. Lately we have been on fatigue nearly every
day. It is funny but so far I don't think I have had
to do the same thing twice. I have dug ditches, cut
wood, stacked wood, unloaded cars, and done all the
odd jobs you can think of. The other day I had to
clean the stables. Today we were making road.
There was a big bunch of us so no one had to work
I judge from the weather we have beeu having and
the reports I read from the East that you have been
having a nice cold winter of it this year. Been hav-
ing plenty of snow too, I expect, haven't you ? It
snowed here a couple of weeks ago, for the first time
in twenty years. Does the University still burn coal ?
I think it would be a real patriotic and also a really
practical thing to do for the University to give you
boys axes and turn you loose in the woods to cut
wood for the power plant. Suppose you suggest the
idea to President Graham with my compliments!
I lost my corporal's job when I was transferred to
this squadron; so I'm nothing but a buck private
We got all excited the other day and nearly left
for France, but somebody changed their mind some-
where and we didn't go. I guess it was because not
all of our men had finished their inoculations. I
understand that no squadron leaves for overseas
until all the men finish their inoculations. I guess
we will be here for some time now, the mechanics
started to school today.
I have been trying to get a chance to fly ever since
I've been down here and I think I'll get my examina-
tion tomorrow or next day. I don't think there is
the slightest chance that I'll pass, but I am going to
make a stab at it just the same.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
TWO EXTENSION CENTERS ORGANIZED
Announcement is made by the Bureau of Exten-
sion that two extension centers at Raleigh and Wins-
ton-Salem, respectively, have been organized, and
that lectures in series have recently been scheduled
at Greensboro, Rocky Mount, and Southern Pines
as a part of the War Information Service proposed
by the Bureau early in the Fall.
Professors Greenlaw, L. A. Williams, and Pier-
son, who comprise the committee on extension cen-
ters, have secured the co-operation of local commit-
tees in both Raleigh and Winston-Salem and the fol-
lowing programs have been tentatively agreed upon:
Raleigh to Study Russia
The committee on organization at Raleigh reports
that about 100 students have joined. Meetings will
be held in the Senate Chamber, and the first course
will begin Tuesday, February 19th. The general
subject of this course is "Russia," the special subjects
being as follows: February 19th, "Tolstoy: The
Forerunner of the Revolution;" February 26th,
"Kropotkin and the Revolutionary Group ;" March
5th, "The Relation of the Russian History and So-
cial Conditions to the Present Crisis;" March 12th,
"Studies in Recent Russian Literature: Gorki, An-
dreev, Chekhov;" March 19th, "Present Tendencies
in Russian Society and Politics."
The first two conferences are to be conducted by
Professor Greenlaw, the others by Professors Pierson,
Henderson, and L. A. Williams. A syllabus of the
course is to be supplied, and the various libraries of
the city will assist in making the course effective.
For the organization of this course the chief credit
is due to members of the faculties of several of Ral-
eigh's educational institutions, notably Miss Minnie
S. Sparrow, of the city high school, and Miss Eliza-
beth A. Colton, of Meredith College.
"America and Her Allies" at Winston-Salem
At Winston-Salem the general subject is "America
and Her Allies". The method of work contemplates
the visit of three members of the faculty at intervals
of about three weeks, these men to remain for two
or three days. A noon meeting will be held each
day at the Slater school ; in the afternoon a group of
men and women who are interested in various phases
of war work will attend the conference, and in the
evening there will be an open lecture.
The underlying idea is "carry on" ; the work done
in these various meetings will assist workers who
will reach other groups in the community, thus mul-
tiplying the influence of the center
France to be Studied First
The first subject to be studied is "France", la brief
outline of which, with proposed speakers, follows:
I. The Common Cause; II. France: The Physical
Scene; III. France: The People, their Civilization
and Achievement: IV. France: Its History and Insti-
tutions; V. The Debt of America to France; VI. The
Glory of France.
The courses will be given by Professors Chase,
Oobb, Hamilton, Dey, Hanford and Pierson.
Lectures at Greensboro, Rocky Mount, and Southern Pines
Individual lectures on various phases of the war
have been arranged as follows for: Greensboro —
Professors Raper, Wagstaff, Hanford, Cobb, Pier-
son, and Patterson ; Rocky Mount — Branson, Allen,
and Patterson; Southern Pines- Allen, Wagstaff,
Cobb, and Wheeler.
CAROLINA PLANS FOR SUMMER MILITARY CAMP
As announced in the last Ri view the University
has planned to conduct a Summer Military Training
Camp at Asheville from June 14 to July 26. The
purpose of the camp is to supply intensive military
training for young men between the ages of sixteen

weeks' session is as follows: Reveille, 6:30 a. m. ;
breakfast, 7-7 :30 a. m. ; inspection, 7 :30-8.00 a. in. ;
sotting up exercises, 8-8:30 a. m. ; drill, 8:30-9:30 a.
m. ; lecture, 9:45-10.45 a. m. ; route march, It :00 a.
m. to 12 :30 p. m. ; dinner, 1 :00 to 1 :30 p. m. ; ma-
noeuvres, drill, musketry, bayonet fighting, bombing,
military engineering, and bath parade, 2:30 to 4:30
p. in.; recreation, 4:30 to 6:30 p. m. ; supper, 6:30
to 7 :00 p. m. ; lecture or study hour, 7 :00 to 8 :00 p.
m. ; recreation, 8 :00 to 10 :30 p. m. ; lights out, 11 :00
Location of Camp
Through the courtesy of Col. Robert Bingham, su-
perintendent of the Bingham School at Asheville, N.
G, the property of Bingham School has been placed
at the disposal of the University. The plant consists
of Barrack Rooms, Mess Hall (accommodating 150
men), Bath House, Infirmary, Club House, Drill
Ground, Rifle Range and Lake. To protect Col.
Bingham a guarantee of $200 or more is required
to cover damages to property.
Capt. Allen to Give Instruction
The camp will be under the immediate supervision
of Capt. J. Stuart Allen and Prof. T. F. Hickerson,
of the University. They will be assisted by Messrs.
B. McKee and W. A. Blount, and such others as
Capt. Allen and Prof. Hickerson find advisable to
associate with them. ~No credit will be given for the
work except in the case of University students who
will be given a chance to remove conditions. The
discipline will be strictly military.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
The expenses for the entire six weeks will be as
follows: Table board, $38.00; tuition fee, $10.00;
matriculation fee, $2.50; damage fee, $1.25. For-
mer Bingham students will not be required to pay
the tuition fee. Each student is required to pay
$15.00 at the time of his application as a guarantee
of his attendance at the camp. All students at the
camp are requested to supply themselves with the
following: A uniform, one pair of blankets, two
pair of sheets, two pillow slips, one pillow, four tow-
els, two pair of woolen socks, one book on Infantry
reau of Militia Affairs, Washington. He is one of
the most popular general officers in the service.
DONATES BOOKS TO LAW LIBRARY
Thomas H. Battle, '80, of Rocky Mount, has gen-
erously donated to the Manning Memorial Law Li-
brary a number of books from the law library of his
father, Dr. Kemp P. Battle, '49, which Dr. Battle
had presented to him. The donation includes a hun-
dred and fifty volumes, a number of which are stand-
ard text-books. The present is received with especial
gratitude because the name of Dr. Battle is every-
where identified with the University, and it seems
peculiarly fitting that his library should find a per-
manent home on the shelves of the University Law
Library. Dr. Battle's brother, the late Mr. Richard
H. Battle, of Raleigh, some years ago bequeathed his
valuable law library to the University.
CAREER OF GENERAL McIVER
Brigadier General George Willcox Mclver, of the
class of 1873, a native of Carthage, is commander of
Camp Jackson, S. C. General Mclver was grad-
uated from West Point in 18S2 and was assigned to
the 7th U. S. Infantry. He was promoted to a first
lieutenancy in 1889 and became a captain in 1898.
In the Spanish-American war he commanded Co. B
of the 7th Infantry at the battles of El Caney and
San Juan Hill. Following the Spanish-American war
Captain Mclver saw service in Cuba, Alaska, and the
Philippine Islands. He became a major in 1904 and
was assigned to the 4th U. S. Infantry. He became
a lieutenant colonel in 1911 and a colonel in 1913.
On August 5, 1917, he was made a brigadier general
in the National Army. General Mclver was assigned
to the 161st Infantry Brigade at Camp Jackson in
August, 1917, and is now in command of the 81st Di-
In addition to service with troops, General Mclver
served at various times as tactical officer at West
Point, as commandant of the Musketry School, in the
Adjutant General's Department, and in the Bu-
300 SCHOOLS ENTER DEBATING UNION
Three hundred high schools in 93 counties have
enrolled in the High School Debating Union for a
state-wide debate this spring on the query, Resolved,
That Congress should enact a law providing for the
compulsory arbitration of industrial disputes.
Preparations are being vigorously made in the
schools for the approaching contest and the indica-
tions are that this year's contest will be one of the
most successful in the history of the Union.
The Bureau of Extension of the University an-
nounces that the triangular debates will be held
March 29th and the final contest for the Aycock Me-
morial Cup at the University April 11th and 12th.
The final contest for the Aycock Memorial Cup is
the leading feature of the University's High School
Week. Other features include the inter-scholastic
track meet and the inter-scholastic tennis tourna-
Robeson county leads the State with an enrollment
of 11 schools. Mecklenburg has an enrollment of 10

BASEBALL PLANS OUTLINED
Baseball will be played this spring at the Univer-
sity of North Carolina, although the varsity football
schedule for last fall was cancelled. There are five
letter men of last year's squad here, around whom
Coach Hearn expects to build a team. They are:
Herty, shortstop; Powell, who was recently elected
captain, and Kinlaw, pitchers; Feimster, third base,
and Younce, catcher. Several members of last year's
Freshman team are expected to show up well for the
Practice began early in February, but this was at
first confined to the gymnasium on account of the
bad weather. It is hoped that some arrangement can
be made, whereby practice will not interfere with
military drill, which at present takes up three after-
noons a week.
The schedule has not been completed because of
the uncertainty caused by the war situation. Mana-
ger Holding says that three Virginia games have
been already arranged — one in Greensboro, one in
Chapel Hill and the other at Charlottesville. The
season will probably open in the latter part of March
with a game with Oak Ridge in Chapel Hill.
BASKETBALL WELL UNDER WAY
The basketball season at the University has had a
good start and the results so far have been most
promising. Emory and Henry College was the first
to be met on the home floor. They were decisively
defeated by the score 63-21. The team had its first
hard contest with Georgia early in February, coming
out victorious, with a score of 32-24. Coach Peacock
has developed a splendid passing game, and the five
has showed great superiority in this respect. Ten-
nent and Cuthbertson make an effective pair of
guards, while Liipfert at center, and Carmichael and
Lynch at forward, have been playing well.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
Birds of America. By T. Gilbert Pearson, Editor-
in-Chief; John Burroughs, Consulting Editor;
and others. 3 vols., colored plates and illustra-
tions, Q. Now York, the University Society, Inc.,
Alumni of the University and North Carolinians
generally have known of the ornithological work of
T. Gilbert Pearson, '99, since the last half of the
1890's. During the years 1897-'99, the University
Magazine frequently carried bird stories from the
pen of Mr. Pearson, and from the date of his grad-
uation until his going to New York to become the
Executive Secretary of the National Association of
Audubon Societies, North Carolina profited by his
activities in the enactment and administration of
legislation relating to bird life. More recently, many
readers of The Review have read with great inter-
est his admirable Bird-Study Book, published by
Doubleday, Page & Co., in 1917.
In his latest publication, Birds of America, Mr.
Pearson, as Editor-in-Chief, and his collaborators
have produced three volumes in the Nature Lovers
Library which, on account of their comprehensiveness
and at the same time popular appeal, will be widely
read throughout the country.
In this work, there is given a complete and satis-
fying treatment of the bird life of America. Today
the American Ornithologist's Union lists 1,200 species
of birds. Of this number, some are either very rare
or seldom visit our shores ; but of the total, the new
Birds of America, describes and pictures a thousand,
together with many interesting stories of bird life
surrounding the hundreds of pictures.
In addition to the large number of field pictures
and black-and-white drawings, the value of this work
is heightened by the inclusion of over 300 species in
color from original drawings in the New York State
Museum. This is recognized as the most important
series of bird studies ever made, and consequently
brings into the pages a constant glow of beauty and
delight, an inspiration to every lover of the birds.
There are also a series of egg plates, showing one
hundred eggs in actual size and colors.
Tbe text is easy to follow because of the fact that
it is presented in two ways. First, in smaller type at
the head of each article, is given a scientific descrip-
tion, stating tersely and exactly the size, color, length,
habitat, and other needful facts for the seasoned nat-
uralist. This is followed in larger type by a story-
telling description written in easy style and free from
technical terms, sO that the casual or younger reader
will follow it with pleasure.
In bringing out the publication Mr. Pearson was
assisted by the following staff of ornithologists and
artists: John Burroughs, Herbert K. Job, Edward
H. Forbush, William L. Finley, L. Nelson Nichols,
L. A. Fuertes, R. B. Horsfall, R. I. Bradsher and
The two series of lectures to be delivered here this
winter and spring promise richly in depth of interest
and power of personal appeal. They are to be deliv-
ered by men of great national prominence, renowned
for scholarship, eloquence, and cultured concern in
the larger problems of our time.
The John Calvin McNair lectures will be delivered
by Professor Shailer Mathews, dean of the Divinity
School of the University of Chicago. A man of great
versatility — Professor Mathews has been, in time,
professor of rhetoric, of history and political econ-
omy, of New Testament history and interpretation, of
systematic theology, and of historical and compara-
tive theology. For a period of eight years (1903-
1911), he was editor of the popular magazine, The
World Today; and since 1913 he has been editor
of The Biblical World. In the larger design mak-
ing for church unity, Dr. Mathews lias played the
role of a leader; and in 1912 he was president of
the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in Amer-
ica. Perhaps his most noteworthy service of this
cause was his visit, in company with Dr. Sidney L.
Gubilt, to Japan, as representative of the churches of
the United States. The McNair lectures will proba-
bly be delivered in March, the exact subject and
dates will be announced later.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Dr. John H. Finley, commissioner of education of
the state of New York, author, poet, orator, college
president, will deliver this year the Weil Lectures on
American Citizenship. He holds honorary degrees
from the leading institutions of the country, and was
the Harvard University exchange lecturer on the
Hyde Foundation at the Sorbonne in 19 10-' 11. Dr.
Finley has recently returned from France where he
made a special study of the educational conditions in
France at the present time. For a time Dr. Finley
was professor of politics at Princeton ; and he is the
joint author (with John F. Sanderson), of "The
American Executive and Executive Methods." The
precise dates and subjects of the lectures will be given
in a later announcement.
It is expected that one or more lectures, by men of
national prominence, will be delivered here during
the spring, dealing with vital phases of the great war
and America's share therein.
RECOMMENDATIONS OFFERED BY DEANS AND
The following (condensed) recommendations are
taken from the reports of the deans and officers of the
University appearing in the recent report of the Pres-
Dean Stacy, of the College of Liberal Arts — The
provision of a student union by means of which the
larger, finer social life of the whole student body may
Dean Patterson, of the School of Applied Science
— The provision (now that a building for Pure and
Applied Mathematics and Physics has been author-
ized by the Trustees) of a building for Geology and
Mineralogy and adequate laboratory equipment for
Dean Manning, of the School of Medicine — The
addition of a professor of Biological Chemistry, an
associate professor of Pathology, an assistant pro-
fessor of Anatomy, and the rearranging of all courses
in the Medical School upon a definite, logical order,
such as the addition of the instructors mentioned
would make possible; the building up of the medical
library ; and the provision of models, fixed specimens,
lanterns, and such other expensive apparatus as can
be effectively employed in special work and demon-
Dean Howell, of the School of Pharmacy — The in-
crease of the appropriation for library purposes.
Dean Noble, of the School of Education — The
erection of a suitable building in which to conduct
a school which would be a model one in its academic,
industrial, and vocational departments ; also a model
one or two-teaeher school.
Director Wilson, of the Bureau of Extension — The
increase of the appropriation for extension purposes
to at least $10,000 a year; the employment of an in-
structor trained in economic and social sciences to as-
sist in further extending the resources of the Univer-
sity to the cities and towns of the State; to develop
additional extension centers; and to increase the li-
brary, lantern, and film service now placed at the
service of the public.
O. J. COFFIN EDITS TIMES
O. J. Coffin, '09, for several years connected with
the Raleigh Times, recently succeeded P. L. Gray,
'96, as editor. The Review prints below the "Greet-
ings" of the Greensboro News apropos of the event :
The Daily News feels a neighborly interest in the
announcement of changes of personnel in the staff
of the Raleigh Times. The young man who becomes
head of the staff is a thorough journalist — although
he, like most of the rest of the tribe, scorns any per-
sonal association with "journalism" or "journalist" —
and something more besides. As a writer Mr. Coffin
is essentially but not offensively clever; we think
that his "Statehouse Anthology," published in the
Times and later in book form, is perhaps the cleverest
piece of writing that has been done in the State with-
in the year; but many of the sketches transcend mere
cleverness. And "judgmatieally" we have no doubt
Coffin will measure up; he knows the business of
what he calls newspaperin' in and out and all around,
and he knows his public, and his State, and his times.
The Daily News anticipates pleasure in passing the
time o' day every little while with its Raleigh neigh-
bor, in future.

matics projected by members of the University de-

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
