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 



Volume VI 



FEBRUARY, 1918 



Number 5 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



THE MATTER OF 
RECOMMENDATIONS 



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. 

DDD 

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 
health consciousness. 

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- 



ing it. 



DDD 



PUBLIC HEALTH 
CONSCIOUSNESS 



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 
likes it. 

ODD 

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- 
sciousness. 

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

STUDENT UNION 
NEEDED 



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. 

DDD 

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. 

DDD 

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. 



AS WELL 



men through 



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. 

DDD 

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 
constitution. 

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. ' 

TnE Review commends it heartily to every one 
in North Carolina who is interested in genuine edu- 
cational advancement. 

DDD 

Reference to the letters (found elsewhere in this 
issue) from alumni in camp or at the front will show 
that the Editors have resorted to 
FAIR MEANS th met hod of District Attorney 
OR FOUL c . J 

bwann, of JNew York City, in se- 
curing desired documents. The files of friends have 
literally been raided to secure them. And there's a 
reason. The Editors can't get them any other way, 
and they must have them ! 

There is one sort of modesty characteristic of Car- 
olina alumni which the Editors do not consider in 
any sense delightful — the modesty which inhibits 
the appearance of one's name in an interesting 
alumni letter. 

Possibly it isn't modesty at all. Can it be that 
they did not properly utilize the excellent training

received in English composition under Instructors 
Bernard and Graham, back in the early nineteen 
hundreds, or their worthy successors to date? We 
wonder ! Speaking of a similar sort of reticence on 
the part of Virginia alumni, the editor of the Vir- 
ginia Alumni News drew upon his Latin in making 
the diagnosis and called it paralysis scriptoris — 
scrivener's palsy. 



Whatever it is that thus lamentably afflicts Caro- 
lina men, must be remedied in some way. These are 
war times, and the pages of The Review must re- 
flect that fact. And they can best do it by means of 
letters from the front — with pictures, etc., to supple- 
ment. The Editors offer you your choice, deter- 
mined to have the goods — whether by fair means or 
foul! 



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: 
Salutatory 

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- 
ciated. 

The Tar Heel 

A weekly paper published at the University of 
North Carolina, under the auspices of the University 
Athletic Association, devoted to the interest of the 
University at large. 

Issued every Thursday morning. It will contain 
a summary of all occurrences in the University and 
village of Chapel Hill. 

Space will be assigned for the thorough discussion 
of all points pertaining to the advancement and 
growth of the University. 

A brief account each week of the occurrences in 
the amateur athletic world, with especial attention 
to our own athletic interests, and progress in foot- 
ball, baseball, tennis, etc. 

All society news, personals and every subject of 



interest to both the students unci citizens of the vil- 
lage, will be treated each week. 

The columns will be open to discussion on all ap- 
propriate subjects with an endeavor to do full justice 
to everyone. The chief and his assistants will decide 
as to appropriateness of articles — no annonymous ar- 
ticles will be accepted without author's name being 
known to the chief, which will be in confidence, if de- 
sired. 

Advertisers will note that this is the best, quickest 
and surest means by which they can reach the stu- 
dents. For rates see or write "Business Manager of 
Tar Heel," Chapel Hill, N. C, or drop him a card 
and lie will call. 

Subscription one dollar and a half per session. 
This spring 75 cents. 

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, 
associate editors. 

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 



118 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



pages in the Magazine hitherto devoted to matter 
which was entirely out of place. 

"Our Annual," the Hellenian 
Somewhere in the "make up" appeared the an- 
nouncement of the forth-coming annual, The Helle- 



nian : 



The Hellenian, this year promises to be the best 
that has ever been issued by the fraternities. Tt will 
be much larger than before, and the book will be one 
of unusual typographical and artistic excellence. It 
will be published by a large northern publishing 
house and will be properly illustrated with numerous 
engravings, cuts, photograves and scenes of Univer- 
sity life, instead of the usual plate of the coat of 
arms and badges of the representative fraternities 
as has been done in the past. Each fraternity will 
be represented by a photograph of their chapter at 
the University. 

The following editors have been elected: Thos. 
B. Lee, editor-in-chief; Chas. R. Turner, Walter 
Murphy and Garnet Smith as business managers. 

The following associate editors: Michael Hoke, 
Perrin Busbee, E. P. Willard, John Mattox, Howard 
Rondthaler, A. S. Barnard, and Julian Ingle. 
Gov. Bickett Among Young Lawyers 

Among the "fillers" at the bottom of the page was 
this note: 

The following members of this year's law class 

received their license to practice law at the February 

term of the Supreme Court of North Carolina: 

Messrs. Bickett, Thomas, Sapp, Hays, Spence and 

Gatling. 

Personal Notes 

Miss Eleanor Alexander is in Raleigh on a visit to 
the Misses Badger. 

Among the visitors at the dance on the 7th we note 
Mr. Paul Sneed, of Durham; Mr. F. C. Mebane, '92, 
of Hillsboro; Mr. Erwin Avery, the well known 
Trinity guard and his brother, Mr. A. C. Avery, Jr., 
a member of the Junior class of Trinity ; Mr. R. L. 
Durham, the ex-Trinity full back ; and Mr. Haywood 
Hamilton, who played right end on the Sewanee team 
last year. 

Mr. Thomas Ruffin came up to the dance and spent 
several days as a guest of the A. T. O. fraternity.

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- 
days" before: 

"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." 



TO WRITE HISTORY OF THE NAVY 

Prof. Jas. F. Royster, of the University of Texas, 
and formerly head of the University Department of 
English, has recently been appointed lieutenant in the 
American navy. Professor Royster has been chosen 
to write a history of the American Navy.

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 
information. 

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 
given : 

Location 

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.

Place du Theatrre Francais. Key to map — 1, Royal Palace

1 'Opera; 9, La Madeleine; 10, Place Vendome; 11, Place de la 
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. 

General Desciiption 

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 
eighty outside bedrooms accommodating over one 
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

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. 
Reading Room 

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 
library. 



LETTERS FROM CAMP AND ABROAD 



Interesting Experiences on the Western Front and Elsewhere are Related by Alumni 



The following letters from men at various camps 
or abroad have been received by The Review or 
friends on the campus. It is hoped that under the 
above head, there may appear each month letters 
which set forth in a vital, interesting way the story 
of Carolina men in service — The Editors. 

BY T. L. BURNETT, 18 

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 
— don't know, and couldn't tell if I did — but I'll 
be "thar."

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 




Brigadier-General Geo. W. McIver, 73

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 
sleep. 

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, 
instructive struggling.

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

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 
so hard. 

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 
again. 

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.

work connected with being representative in this com- 
pany for the Division Statistical Section. Cy Thomp-

now. Within the last two weeks I have written 
nearly a million dollars worth of War Risk Insur-

can't tell just how soon.

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 —

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

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

Expenses 

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

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- 
vision there. 

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-

important cases in the federal courts for the federal 
government. 



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 
'varsity. 

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., 
1917. $19.00. 

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 
Henry Thurston. 



UNIVERSITY LECTURES 

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 
OFFICERS 

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- 
ident: 

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 
be increased. 

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 
the same. 

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- 
strations. 

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. 



MATHEMATICAL ASSOCIATION MEETS 

The Association of Teachers of Secondary Mathe- 
matics projected by members of the University de- 
partment of Mathematics last year, held its second 
meeting in Greensboro Friday and Saturday, Feb- 
ruary 1st and 2nd under the auspices of the Normal 
College. The meeting was made noteworthy by the 
presence of Dr. David Eugene Smith, of Columbia 
University. 

The following officers were elected for the ensuing 
year: Mr. W. W. Rankin, Jr., of the University of 
North Carolina, president ; Mr. S. L. Sheep, of the 
Marion High School, first vice-president ; Miss Maria 
Graham, of the East Carolina Teacher's Training 
School, second vice-president ; Miss Nita Gressitt, of 
the Greensboro High School, third vice-president; 
Mr. J. W. Lasley, Jr.. of the University of North 
Carolina, secretary.

— 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!
