P. 0. No. 704, asked the very significant question, How ALL ^ ^ n University stood the first shock of WELL? the war and sustained the drain of man power incident to it ? It is the sort of question which, whether phrased just that way or otherwise, sooner or later appears in all the letters from Carolina men at the front. It is the equivalent of How is Alma Mater in these new uncertain days ? The Review cannot give a complete, satisfying answer, because it does not know all the facts, but it welcomes the opportunity of attempting one. □ □□ Carolina has felt the shock of war. May eight to fourteen, 1917, marked the sudden going of some two hundred of the student body FIRM FAITH IN • t training or direct into ser- THE FUTURE . i • ., . u vice, and since then its older men have steadily left the class room for the camp. The first day of Commencement, 1917, with senior ranks badly reduced, was decidedly depressing. But with the return of loyal sons on alumni day, and the rec- ord-breaking attendance of Commencement day, the feeling of depression vanished, and since the hour of new consecration in Memorial Hall on June 6, de- spite her losses and the changing conditions with which she has been confronted, Carolina has been certain of her course and has met every new situation promptly and with faith in her future. DDD The Summer School furnished the first concrete evidence of the University's staying power. One thousand students were registered by July one, and by October first, through the united support of alumni, a fresh- man class of 324, with other classes and schools show- ing from fifty to ninety per cent, usual strength, had settled down to serious work at the Hill. The adoption of thoroughly organized military training showed the ability to make immediate and thoroughly adequate readjustments. Five or six hun- dred students donned khaki and went to drilling. And they are still drilling, with the result that POWER TO STICK MORALE EXCELLENT alumni officers from the training camps find them showing the form of regulars, and the government permits, under certain limitations, engineering stu- dents subject to the draft to continue their work until they complete their course. DDD In spirit, or morale, the percentage figure is an even hundred. Resultant action has not graded so high. But the student body has cheer- fully accepted the changed conditions and the faculty has readjusted itself promptly to the new conditions. The curriculum, where possible, has been changed to meet the require- ments of the hour, and the University has placed itself in the front rank of those American institutions which have demonstrated real leadership in the world crisis. □ □□ So much for the war situation. The problems of peace and the future have not failed of considera- tion. Steps have been taken to increase AwwAn ^ e a * teim ance of women in the future. Through the purchase of the Herty collec- tion of chemistry journals the foundation for after- the-war training in chemical engineering has been made firmer. And similarly through the approval of plans for a hundred thousand dollar building for Physics, Electrical and Civil Engineering, and Mathematics, the development of a more effective school of applied science is contemplated. Most important of all, the most difficult problem of apply- ing the Bingham bequest to the strengthening and wise enlargement of the faculty has been seriously begun, and the University has definitely committed itself to the task of shaping itself into a finer instru- ment for the educational and spiritual leadership of the State and Nation. DDD Of course The Review may be mistaken in theso opinions. But from a careful study of the institu- tion at work, and from an equally NOT A MERE f , i ■•, ,. , , . careiul and wide reading of alumni publications of other colleges and universities, it is absolutely sure that to date Caro- 144 THE ALUMNI REVIEW ONE OF THESE DAYS lina has been far more successful than the average American college and university in maintaining normal standards, registration, etc., and meeting the complex problems with which she has been confront- ed, and while doing that has also kept well in hand the planning of her future position of power. So far, in spite of the war and its tendency to demoral- ization, the future is bright and full of hope. Announcement has been made that the State Building Commission has approved preliminary plans for the erection of a building for the departments of Mathematics, Physics, and Civil and Electrical Engineering and has authorized its construction at a cost of from $80,000 to $100,000. Architect Hook is now perfecting detailed plans and one of these days it is hoped the building will he begun. But it is not so much the new building The Re- view is thinking of, as the space in the Alumni Building now occupied by the departments of Phy- sics and Electrical Engineering which will he re- leased, and its future utilization. The Review doesn't know just what plans Super- intendent of Buildings and Grounds Woollen may have in his mind, hut it will wager that the follow- ing will receive consideration: (1) Adequate space, with the necessary clerical staff, will be provided for handling the various publications of the University. At present the University is issuing Studies in Phi lology, The Sprunt Historical Publications, The Journal of the Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society. The Record, Extension Leaflets, The Review, The News Letter, The High School Journal, and other occasional publications, each of which is sent to a "special mailing list and handled by a different edi- torial board, with the result that no one can tell just what, publications have been sent to any one individ- ual address during the year. Subscriptions lists, stenciled mailing lists, addressographs, envelopes bearing the proper titles of the respective publica- tions, records of issues, etc., will be provided for, and all orders and requests for publications will he def- initely placed and filled — one of these days! (2) Together with this will come the utilization of the third floor and basement for storage purposes. Supplies for the various departments will he syste- matically placed and a store-keeper will be on duty for full time so that the physical needs of the Uni- versity may be promptly met. (3) The Review believes that a special stenogra- pher will be provided for in the reorganization, with office and equipment, to take care of faculty corre- spondence concerning University matters, to operate mimeographs and multigraphs, etc., and to prepare copies of examination and other necessary papers. (4) The Review does not wager that a special over-flow room for members of the faculty between classes will be provided, but it can see how this might add greatly to the convenience of those who under present conditions are forced out of their classrooms between classes and have no place to go to except the college offices in which work is being carried on. When this shall have come to pass, it will be in order to unite these new offices, together witli the present administrative offices of the building, by means of an intra-campus telephone system. All of which may sound too idealistic for Chapel Hill, but Tjik Review believes it will come — one of these days ! DDD Once upon a time when the Editor's time was de- voted wholly to the Library and not required for the writing of notes like this or vari- THE CAROLINA ^ ^^gg the very pleas- EUROPEAN FEL- . ,. ° ' -j i.- v LOWSHIP FUND uliLi compliment was paid mm by President Venable to the effect that he (the Editor) evidently lay awake at night thinking of ways in which the University might spend money on the Library. It may be that the alumni think in this day of Liberty Loans, Red Cross Campaigns, War Saving Stamp Drives, Y. M. C. A. Contributions, not to mention sundry income taxes, increased cost of flour, meal, cigars, et cetera, et cetera, it is gratuitous to propose another fund and urge subscriptions to it. But it is the duty — in this instance a most pleasant one — of the Editor to rally the brethren to the support of good causes. And so we do. Read elsewhere the plan reaching the Carolina men at the front and send your contribu- tion for that purpose to Secretary Rankin. DDD During last Commencement, possibly on Alumni Day, The Review seems to remember hearing some- thing about a flag pole for the Uni- WHY NOT A ver!9uy — a big up-standing, sky- FLAG POLE? . ,, b ', .,, a & . J scraping flag pole, with flag stream- ing in the breeze. At the time, The Review was not seriously impressed with the idea, but it is now. During the year, hundreds of our men have joined the colors. They are braving death on a foreign field in order that what it symbolizes may abide in the earth. To this end, The Review has kept a small file of THE ALUMNI REVIEW 145 illustrations, data, etc., relating to this particular subject which it will gladly furnish to that class or alumnus who wishes to place a permanent, worthy flag staff on the campus. DDD We call the attention of every alumnus to four extremely important matters: The first is that Commencement ATTENTION j g oulv two and a hal f mont hs off, EVERYBODY ' , ,, . . A . ,„ 1y i ' and every class that is due to hold a reunion should exert every effort to bring its full membership to the Hill. And every alumnus who dues not belong to a class scheduled to return, should come back for the very special reason that Alma Mater, in the midst of this world crisis, needs the loyal presence and support of everyone of her sons. The second is that the Summer School begins in ninety days. It must go forward in spite of the shock of war and the competition occasioned by the establishment of other schools established in the State. The third is similar. Read the appeal of Albert ( loates, of the Xorth Carolina Club, to you to assist in bringing the graduates of the high schools to Caro- lina. Lloyd George says to the Allies that they must go on or go under. Coates makes it pretty clear that the high school boys must go on now or go under in after-the-war days. It rests largely with you as to whether the enrollment for 1918-19 is what it should be and must be if the future interests of the State are to be properly safeguarded. On March 29th, the high school boys in 300 vil- lages and towns of the State will debate, under the guidance of the Debating Union, the question of compulsory arbitration of industrial disputes; In the respect that this is a part of the Extension work of the University, alumni are urged to aid in every way possible to make the local event the occasion of the year for the local high school. It isn't for The Review to suggest ways and means. Carolina men know too well how to make things go for that. But this is merely a reminder of the date and the oppor- tunity. THE CAROLINA EUROPEAN FELLOWSHIP FUND If You Want the Carolina Men at the Front in France to Know You Think of Them, Here's Your Chance It is the belief of The Review that nothing would give the alumni of the University deeper and more genuine satisfaction than to have some way opened for bringing a small bit of personal happiness to the Carolina men at the front in France. With this in mind The Review now offers an ideal practical plan for carrying this out during the period of the war, with the assurance that it will meet the enthusiastic response from every alumnus who reads the following letter from Mrs. Sally Nel- son Bardin, Secretary of the War Service Division of the University of Virginia European Bureau, addressed to Secretary Rankin of the General Alumni Association: As you know, the University of Virginia has es- tablished a Bureau of its own at the American Uni- versity Union in Paris, this Bureau being in charge of Mr. Lewis D. Crenshaw, the Secretary of the Uni- versity of Virginia Alumni Association. Mr. Cren- shaw has been in Paris since Dec. 10th and has the opportunity to see a i;reat many of the Virginia alumni who«are in service, and to learn just what things are needed to make them more comfortable at the front. The Boys Don't Like the French Mullen Leaf Out of the many things that are, in a way, neces- sary, tobacco and candy seem to be the most in de- mand. Mr. Crenshaw states that it is almost impos- sible to get American brands of tobacco in France, and the men simply cannot smoke French tobacco. Sugar i,n any form is very scarce and chocolate equal- ly so; the little that the men get is quite insufficient to supply the need of the body for sugar, and every- one in France has a tremendous craving for anything in the shape of candy. In order to supply the need for tobacco and candy it has been decided to form on this side what we call the War Service Division of the University of Vir- ginia European Bureau. This Division will be com- posed of mothers, wives, sisters and friends, of the alumni, and such of the alumni themselves as may wish to join. We are charging a membership fee of $1.00 a year for each individual, and are inviting contributions of any amount that anyone may choose to give. The money thus collected will be used, at first, to prepare and send to Mr. Crenshaw in Paris little packages containing three bags of tobacco, cig- arette papers, and three cakes of chocolate. Mr. Crenshaw will give these packages to the Virginia men when they come to Paris, will send them to 146 THE ALUMNI REVIEW those who are wounded or sick, and as far as possible will distribute them among the men at the front. Crenshaw, of Virginia, Offers Service The University of Virginia is the only Southern institution, at present, maintaining its own Bureau, in Paris ; several Southern institutions are members of the American University Union, but Virginia is the only one with an organized Bureau of its own. Mr. Crenshaw writes that men from all over the South are constantly visiting the Virginia Bureau, and that he is always glad to welcome them, and do what he can for their comfort. In sending us an appeal for tobacco and candy, he pointed out, par- ticularly, that a great many men from other institu- tions in the South visit the Bureau, and asked us to call the attention of the various other Sontbern col- leges to the fact that there is no one in Paris able to distribute tobacco and candy to these boys but him- self; and without doubt the packages sent over by our War Service Division will be given to the men from the other Southern institutions as gladly as to the Virginia men. In view of the fact that Mr. Crenshaw has an \m- usual opportunity to come into contact with men from all over the South, it has occurred to us that perhaps the Southern institutions which have no personal representatives in the American University Union in Paris, might like to accept an invitation to make use of the Virginia Bureau for the purpose of supplying tobacco and candy to their boys who are in Paris on leave. I am therefore writing to ask whether you would care to give us the oppor- tunity of serving you in this matter. The War Ser- vice Division will be glad to receive a contribution from your University, would prepare the packages, would mark them with the name of your University, and put a slip on the inside stating where they came from. We should be glad to send these ov*er with our own bags, and Mr. Crenshaw would distrihute them to the right men whenever he had the oppor- tunity. If you should prefer to do so, you could have these packages prepared yourselves, forward them to us for shipment, and we would send them to Mr. Crenshaw for distribution. Carolina Likes the Idea Secretary Rankin has gratefully acknowledged the letter and it has been decided that the Alumni Association, through him, will receive contributions of from $1.00 up for the purposes set forth, and that the packages will be sent forward for delivery by Mr. Crenshaw or some other representative of the Union as the case may require. Here's Where You Can Help Fellow alumni, visualize the matter for a moment. A Carolina man whose longest trip prior to joining the army was probably the one to Richmond on Thanksgiving, is on furlough in Paris. He goes to the American University Union lonesome to the nth degree and hungry for word from home, and — Cren- shaw or some other representative, possibly another Carolina man secretarially and humanly disposed as Frank Graham would be, for example — walks up with one of the aforementioned packages containing the card of "Ed." Graham or "Billy" Noble or "Horace !" The Carolina European Fellowship Fund If a name to charge the expenditure up to on your check and stub is all that stands between you and the written pay to the order of, why let it go to the Carolina European Fellowship Fund ! And then let the paper come forward to E. R. Rankin, Secretary. For every twenty-five cents you contrib- ute, stick in one of your visiting cards. Or, if you are a simon-pure representative of democracy, and don't have one, leave that to Rankin! EUROPEAN FELLOWSHIP FUND RECEIVES CONTRI- BUTION As the Review goes to press, Mr. Herman Weil, of the class of 1901, of Goldsboro, sends a contribu- tion of fifty dollars to the Carolina European Fel- lowship Fund. This is the first contribution re- ceived. RONDTHALER HEADS SOCIAL SERVICE CONFER- ENCE Dr. Howard E. Rondthaler, of the class of 1893, President of Salem College, was elected President of the North Carolina Conference for Social Service at the sixth annual meeting of the Conference held in Raleigh, March 5-6. Professor E. C. Branson was elected 2nd vice-president, and Mrs. Thos. W. Lingle was re-elected secretary. Among those mak- ing addresses were: Governor T. W. Bickett, Prof. E. C. Branson, Mr. A. W. McAlister, and Judge W. F. Harding. TAKES PRIDE IN THE UNIVERSITY Dear Dr. Graham : The progress of the University — just as interesting to me now as ever — during the past few years has fill- ed my heart with joy. I believe our western institu- tions have been more progressive, more socially mind- ed, until recent years, than those of the East and South. But your administration of the affairs of U. N. C. has smashed my theory, for the University at least. I watch her development with pride twelve months in the year. — John H. Vaughan, '04. THE ALUMNI REVIEW KEEP THE REGISTRATION HIGH 147 Alumni Assistance is Needed in Keeping the Ranks Filled "The high registration under existing conditions seems to me marvelous,'' was the comment, of Presi- dent Graham on the opening of the University last September. And The Alumni Review adds: "The registration on October first showed only a small falling off from the high record of last year, 1034 students having registered on that date. . . This loss is proportionately the smallest on record, and compares most favorably with the registration of leading colleges in other states. . . . Alumni throughout the State evidently did fine work in im- pressing prospective students with the importance of going to college." Though the number of students has suffered a de- cline, the morale of the student body has more than correspondingly increased. The average made on the last examinations is the highest that has been made in years. Men are responding wholeheartedly and generously to the stirring events in the world. Their spirit has been quickened by the stimulus of war and the responsibility it places on them. Carolina Faces New Situation But the University faces now a situation more serious than that of last year, one which will grow more serious every year the war lasts. The army has called for men. And the University, aware what giving meant, was glad to give. More than twenty per cent of her students, faculty, and alumni are in the camps and in France. The number is steadily increasing. One can compare her record with the record of any other institution in America, and be proud of it. Out of this condition is created the University's problem. Her task does not contradict the country's task. Their work is of the same piece and pattern. Both are working upon the problems of democracy. And democracy everywhere and always has planted her faith in education. The solution of this problem lies not in the elimi- nation of one, but in the correlation of both; not in competition, but in co-operation. There are certain definite needs that the war creates. And the fact that these needs are so real, is all the more reason that they should be given full and complete satisfac- tion. College Trained Men Are Needed in War General Pershing, after a short experience in France, wrote Secretarv Baker that he needed an army of trained, thinking, individuals, and not a mass of men trained as a machine. The significance of this statement is increased by the fact that eighty per cent of the men commissioned at the first train- ing camps, and at least that percentage of the num- ber recommended from the drafted men, on the basis of merit, for the second training camp, were men witli college training. Only a few days ago an of- ficial asked President Graham if the University could accommodate a number of men whom the War Department wished to send here for the training they lacked. These things, together with the fact that the War Department has sent out telegrams to the higher educational institutions saying: "Every effort will be made to use each student's special train- ing in connection with specialized occupations in the army so as to afford college students of draft age the same opportunity as though they registered now," demonstrate clearly that intelligence and training are necessary to win even the physical battle. College Trained Men Are Needed in Peace But what is just as important: the effective use of the chance for which we are fighting, the self-con- trol which will be necessary to give a decent deal to a brutal foe, and thus build a peace upon the sure foundations of justice, and just as vital and more pressing, the solution of the problem of capital and labor, of producer and consumer, the ownership and control of public utilities, the proper adjustment of all the counter currents in our industrial and social life, which are accumulating behind the delaying hand of war as mountain torrents behind a dam- ready to break upon us full and strong with all their levelling fury, — these must be faced frankly, dealt with honestly. The national body and the national soul must pass through a searching test of fire. It would be tragic to slacken our preparation now. The necessity for it is greater than if the war had never come. In all these trials democracy must give itself a square deal. It would be as dishonest for democra- cy to cheat itself, as to cheat another. It cannot for- sake the basis of its hope without forfeiting its life. Patriotism without sense is patriotism without mean- ing. Patriotism without trained intelligence is ut- terly helpless. This is Mexico's plight. It is Rus- sia's all but fatal weakness. Our Efforts Should Be Doubled Germany sees this issue clearly. And for those of her men who cannot remain in school, she has pro- 148 THE ALUMNI REVIEW vided universities aud training centers upon the fir- ing lines. She has been so successful in the military prosecution of the war because she has brought a trained and disciplined intelligence into it ; because for the last fifty years the brightest minds in Ger- many have concentrated upon the profession of arms. Our allies see it clearly. England, France, Canada, in the midst of a struggle infinitely more exhausting than our own, have doubled their educational efforts and expenditures. In this country we are beginning to see it. Secretary of War Baker, in an address here last commencement, said that every man not actually under arms should be in school training for the tasks ahead. United States Commissioner of Education, P. P. Claxton, has sent out a letter urg- ing "all young men to take full advantage of the op- portunities offered by the colleges and universities to the end that they may be better prepared to render effective service during the war and in the times of need that will follow." Secretary McAdoo, in an address to the high school students in a western city, has uttered the same sentiment. So have other men of vision throughout the country. How the University Can Meet the Situation The duty of the young American today is two-fold : (1) to prepare for effective service in the present crisis; (2) to prepare for effective service through- out his whole life. To every man confronted with this situation, the University of North Carolina offers a way out. The foremost of Southern univer- sities, she cfffers a cultural and professional training recognized by the National Education Commission as second to none. The high standing of the insti- tution in the country is attested by government recog- nition as a training centre for men in special branches of the service, as a place to which the War Department wished to send men to receive the special training they lacked. Her department of military training is recognized by competent critics to be one of the best in the entire country, and commissioned officers pronounce it to be of as high quality as that given to the enlisted men in the camps. It is under the direction of Captain J. Stuart Allen, who, as Captain in Princess Patricia's Canadian Light In- fantry, was for two years in the thick of the fight in France. But despite the fact that training is more essential now than ever; despite the fact that the University offering military instruction in addition to its usual training offers the only opportunity open to a man today to prepare for his two-fold duty as soldier and citizen, it will be more difficult than ever to keep the educational institutions going at full force. A large number of students will have a desire to rush into the war without waiting to prepare. Others will have brothers or relatives gone and this will tend to keep them at home. Many must borrow money to go to college, and money will be more difficult to bor- row this year than in past years because there is a chance that the student will be called to arms before he has had the opportunity to repay it. But of course such loans could be secured through insurance poli- cies. And there are some of these, and others, who will not see the issue clearly as older men see it. The Way Is Open for Service Here is the opportunity of men of vision every- where, and especially of every University alumnus whose Alma Mater serves, and lives as an expression of democracy's faith in education. Our soldiers on the battlefields are striving to achieve a clean surface in which may be planted the principle we stand for. In harmony with these men, in justice to them, we must strive through the educational institutions of America to make their efforts count. It will be a simple, easy, task for the alumni throughout North Carolina to call a meeting of the high school stu- dents in their communities, or get in touch with them personally or through a letter, and urge upon them the advantages of a college training. To persuade some man who is undecided to continue his educa- tion, to strengthen his purpose if it is already form- ed, to aid some man to go who could not without his help, is to invest in a Liberty Bond of a precious sort ; is to perform a service which is worthy of the highest traditions of service which University men have built up, and which is true to the spirit of an institution so deeply rooted in the people's life who have created and sustained it, so accurately conceiv- ed in their service, that her response to their need is only the complete expression of her life. — Albert 11. Coates. SUMMER CAMP IDEA IS POPULAR From information secured from Captain J. Stuart Allen, the plan of holding the summer military camp at Asheville, June 14- July 26, for boys between 16 and 20, has proven most popular and applications for two-thirds of the 150 places had already been received before the issue of the formal prospectus last week. As previously announced, the camp is to be held un- der the auspices of the University at the Bingham School grounds at Asheville, with Captain Allen and Professor Hickerson directing it. The cost for board, tuition, etc., is to be fifty dollars, and every feature of the Bingham School establishment is to be put at the disposal of the students. THE ALUMNI REVIEW LETTERS FROM THE FRONT AND CAMP 149 Carolina Men from All Parts of the World Want News of Alma Mater The following letters from Carolina men have been received since our last issue. These columns are constantly open for similar communications. The let- ters published last month easily led in interest and were widely commented upon. By HUGH B. HESTER- 16 2nd Lieut., F. A. U. S. R. A. P. O., No. 704, February 6, 1918. Your kind note reached me some days ago. Since I shall be unable to comply with your request, save in spirit, I shall reply by requesting some favors of yen. If you have got out any University circulars, and I am sure you have, I wish you would bundle them m> and send them to me. We all want to know just what you are doing, and what you are expecting of the im- mediate future. I speak the sentiments of all the University men I have met over here in the service when I say we are intensely interested in how the University is meeting the first shock and sustaining the first draining of her man power by the war. John A. Scott, '12, A. P. 0. 711 ; Herbert Drew, '16, A. P. O. 711 ; W. C. Carmichael, '16, first brigade of field Artillery; T. A. Jones, Coast Artillery, School of Ins.; Samuel J. Ervin, Jr., '17, 28th Infantry, are the University men with whom I am in intimate touch. All of us are hungry for University news. The letters we write you will not be numerous for, as a French friend of mine put it, "We must hurry, for of time, you know, we have but a few." What you can give us in the way of news of the dear old Uni- versity will be deeply appreciated. I am more than five thousand miles away from her site, but thank God, I am never away from her fine influence. Dist- ance but emphasizes and magnifies the loftiness and benevolence of this educational and spiritual lumi- nary. Now, as regards what we are doing and experienc- ing, I am not at all certain that anything we are per- mitted to tell or write would be interesting reading matter, assuming that we have had interesting ex- periences. Personally, I should not wish to attempt the task of the proportions and magnitude of my re- cent experiences. To a fellow who had never been farther west than Chapel Hill nor east than Hester, a trip to France with the American Expeditionary Forces would afford so many experiences that to sep- arate and classify the interesting would be impossible. The above is my situation, I am surrounded daily with a myriad of wonders, delights, and novelties. We are enjoying the experience and at the same time working like the Devil to hit the Hun. A fine feel- ing of fellowship everywhere prevails. I should like very much to have the speeches of President Graham. We are not supplied with an abundance of reading matter. By FRANCIS BRADSHAW, "16 Secretary Y. M. C. A. Chapel Hill, N. C, March 9, 1918. The class of nineteen-sixteen had planned to hold a smoker among the members that were at Camp Jackson. When the time came to work out the details it was discovered that the small fractions of time that the men had for such unmilitary manoeuvers could by no process he reduced to a common denomi- nator. Then I decided to make of myself a circu- lating headquarters and, since the members of the class could not come to a smoker, carry a smoker to them. I equipped myself with a 1916 Yackety Yack, a Tar Heel of the same period, the class scrapbook, the notes still due, a bunch of pictures of things as they are now on the campus, and a kodak. With this hooked on or stuffed into all the corners and nooks and crannies of myself-in-traveling-dress I stood, after a due interval of travel, in a little room in the Union Bank Building of Columbia where I was in line to get a pass to the camp. Here it was that I saw my first Carolina man. He was seated in the inner office and was brought out by a large stage whisper from the "circulating smoker." This alum- nus, supposed to be Bill Heartt, turned out to he Lieut. William Heartt, Assistant Provost Marshal, and first under Colonel Edwin M. Bell in the preser- v >rion of law and order in the camp and city. After another uneventful interval the "smoker" stood among the barracks of the camp, all of them bewilderingly alike, getting up courage to enquire for B of the 322nd. Just at the psychological mo- ment a well known and not entirely changed form approaches and, to prove its substantiality, answers quite readily when tentatively addressed as R. E. Parker. With this reliable Charon the "smoker" safely reaches Co. B. An inspection of the name- plates on the doors reveals the legend, "Capt. H. B. Cowell," and the deep bass of invitation to enter is soon lost in the blended trebles of greeting from Fattv and his brother. 150 THE ALUMNI REVIEW Lieut. Dysait Hits Upon a Plan During much showings of pictures and answering of questions Lieut. Dysart, who has been to town to meet the "smoker", arrives on the scene and so the "smoker' comes to the first of its many destinations. I was now up against the job of seeing about twen- ty men scattered among forty thousand and with Dy- sart as officer of the day confined to his regimental area the afternoon's work dug out only Cutey Hol- land and Kicks Jernigan. At supper, however, Dy- sart had a real idea and sent me back to Columbia to locate Wingfield's drug store with the promise that if I should stay there long enough, I would see every Carolina man in camp. Within three minutes after I and my pictures had been arranged around the corner of a central counter iu tin! store the first fish was hooked, Brinkly of .15. This happened at 9 o'clock and within two hours the little group that was constantly gathered about the pictures had included Jim Hardison, Red Proctor, Bob Foster, Zeke Cowan, Tommy Borden, Red Al- len, Merry Lewis, Graham Ramsey, Ham Horton, Goaty Wright with Mrs. Goaty, Plato Brooks, S. C. Cratch, Claude Andrews, Charley Daniels, Bruce Webb, Duck Harper, Gilliam Craig with Mrs. Gil- liam, Jimmie Hughes, Jesse Turbyville, Long In- gram, Kenneth Royall, and Dr. Keyes. And so ended the first day. Plan No Good for Sunday Since the second day was Sunday the drug store stunt could not be repeated. This time the "smoker" must really circulate, and circulate it did. This change of tactics netted Tatum, Henry Johnston, Roger McDuffie, Herman Jernigan, Cleve Smith, Louis Clements, Capt. Bynum, Bill Umstead, Jim Harper, Hilary Winslow, Chas. Loughlin, Betsy Watson, Nemo Coleman, and Charley Coggin. A trip to the officers 'training camp found the infantry division just returned from four days and nights in the trenches. Amid much dust of preparation for in- spection we found 1ST. C. Shuford, Jake Shrago, Spencer Stell, Tucker Day, Bob Moseley, W. C. Suddreth, and Dr. Towles, and even among these officers-to-be we found the three-day-old conscript. Wade Hunter. Monday morning a hurried round turned up Tom DeVane and Avon Blue. A second call at the office of Lieut. Heartt, Asst. Provost Marshal, brought the climax of the visit with the discovery that his lieu- tenants were Hugh Black and B. F. Paty, (in other words Carolina is just about policing the whole blooming business) ; and so the smoker was id- jonrned. As I changed from a smoker, a public institution, to a mere private individual once more and so be came capable of reflection, I found myself very ha 1 :- py in the feeling that every Carolina man I had seen was "making good" in work and in favor with his fellows. I had found all healthy, happy, and produc- tive and felt mighty proud of every one of them. By P. H. GWYNN, '12 Second Lieut. O. R. C. Camp Zachary Taylor, Feb. 16, 1918. The January issue of The Review is at hand. I got it yesterday upon my return to the company after a long siege in the hospital. Nothing could have been more welcome. You should have seen me devour it page by page. Like a weary traveler who has found a cool spring in the desert, I eagerly read all the news about the war work of the University and her sons. Since my assignment to active duty out here in "Ole Kentucky", I have seen very few of my old mates and chums of college days. Believe me, I have missed the association. There are no men quite like Carolina men. J. R. Sloan, '12, an old roommate of mine, is in the same regiment. We hang together quite a good deal and sing the glories of the Old North State whenever opportunity offers. By H. G. BAITY, 17 Ordnance Department No. 13 Camp Meade, Md., Feb. 20, 1918. I am very anxious to get immediately in touch with every member of 1917 to get some data, and to boost up our reunion for Commencement. The only way to reach these men, I suppose, is to write them at their home addresses. The class is very widely scat- tered over the globe just now, but we do not want that to hinder us from having a successful, "peppy" one-year jubilee. Now is the time of all times to make a re-union worth the while, and I think every memW of 1918 in the United States should be there. By ARNOLD A. McKAY. '13 American Consular Service Valparaiso, Chile, January 29, 1918. I trust that everything is going well with the Uni- versity. I like it down here very well, but one gets somewhat lonesome for things American. Yet this is no time to grumble and if one is helping along a good country in a good idea there is a certain satis- faction in living. We have been extremely busy and there is little prospect of a let-up. The Germans are rather active in Chile; so much so that they keep things lively for THE ALUMNI REVIEW 151 everybody. In trade and propaganda they are very energetic just at present. Chile is about the only country where they are given free rein, much to the disadvantage of Chile and to the disgust of decent folk who are anxious that the world may become what Mr. Wilson calls a "fit place in which to live." But it will become a fit place in spite of the terrible Hun. THE UNIVERSITY SECURES HERTY COLLECTION OF CHEMICAL JOURNALS The University has just procured by purchase the valuable collection of Chemistry journals which for the past five years has been deposited in the library of the Department of Chemistry by Dr. Chas. H. Herty, formerly professor of Chemistry. The pur- chase was made possible by a special appropriation from University funds augmented by the generous gifts of money and books by alumni and friends of the Chemistry department. The purchase represents 1,100 volumes, which runs the total number of Chem- ical journals now owned by the University up to 5,000 and makes it one of the most complete collections of chemical journals to be found in the universities of this country. The collection just purchased is especially valuable for the number of complete sets of the most important journals of European countries. The Annates de Physique et de Chimie has had continued publica- tion since 1789, even through the trying period of the French Revolution, when one of its editors, the great Lavoisier, was beheaded. This set is complete to the present. The famous journal of the French Academy, Comptes rendits de L'Academie des Sci- ences de France (1835 — to date), containing many announcements of famous discoveries, is also com- plete. Several of the journals of the national chemi- cal societies are included in the collection. Such are, Gazetta chemica italiana, the journal of the Chemi- cal Society of Italy; Monatshefte fur Chemie, the journal of the Austrian Chemical Society; Recueil des travaux chimiques des Pays-Bos, the journal of the Chemical Society of Holland and Belgium. Be- sides these national journals there are several de- voted to special phases of chemical investigation. Zeitschrift fur anorganiche Chemie (completing the partial set already owned by the University) ; Che- miker Zeitung; Moniteur Scientifique (complete) ; Zeitschrift fiir den physikali-schen und chemischen Unterricht (complete) ; Chemische Zeitschrift; Che- mische Revue uber die Fett-und-Harz Industrie; Fdrber-Zeitung; Archiv der Pharmozie (1874 to date) and Kolloid-Z eitschrift (complete). The University is particularly fortunate in being able to procure these journals at this time, for war conditions have diminished the supply of such peri- odicals and have greatly increased the demand for such literature in all countries. The names of alumni and friends who have given money and books in the effort to secure the collection are: Frank Drane, Stroud Jordan, A. W. Belden, J. R. Harris, W. H. Strowd, G. B. Whitaker, L. B. Lockhart, C. W. Willard, W. H. Oldham, J. S. Hill, W. N. Pritchard, V. C. Edwards, D. MacRae, J. W. Turrentine, Miss Daisy Allen, W. H. Harrell and J. H. Pratt. NEW ALUMNI OFFICERS J. S. Hunter ,of the class of 1913, of Los Angeles, has received his commission as a 2nd lieutenant in the non-flying corps of aviation, and is now in ser- vice in France. Ernest J. Sifford, of the class of 1904, of Charlotte, has received a commission as captain in the ordnance department at Washington. Mr. Sifford is a chemist and has been engaged in the pursuit of chemistry since graduation in 1904. Dr. Arnold Shamaskin, Med. '09, who was en- gaged for several years in the practice of medicine at 1961 Mapes Avenue, Bronx, N. Y., has received the commission of 1st lieutenant in the Medical Reserve Corps and is stationed at the provisional base hospital, Fort Oglethorpe, Ga. I. F. With- erington, of the class of 1911, is a 1st lieutenant with the 307th Engineers, Camp Gordon, Atlanta, Ga. Dr. Chas. H. White ,of the class of 1894, has entered the Ordnance Reserve Corps as captain and is stationed at Watertown, Mass. E. A. Metts, 1900, of Wilmington, is a captain in the Officers Reserve Corps, coast artillery. J. F. Andrews, Phar. '16, of Durham, is an ensign in the U. S. naval aviation service and is an instructor at an aviation camp. L. A. Blue, Jr., 1916, 1st lieu- tenant, is one of two aides to Brigadier General Geo. W. Mclver, Camp Jackson, S. C. Ellison L. Gilmer, 1886, a native of Greensboro, has been made a colonel in the coast artillery, Na- tional Army. He is stationed at Fort Adams, New- port, Rhode Island. Col. Gilmer entered army ser- vice as captain of the Guilford Greys in the Spanish- American War. F. K. Dillon, '18, of Greensboro, holds a 1st lieutenancy in the aviation corps. Dr. Chas. H. White, formerly a member of the faculty of Harvard University and more recently a consulting geologist in San Francisco, has received a commission as captain in the Ordnance Reserve Corps and is stationed at the Watertown Arsenal. 152 THE ALUMNI REVIEW PUBLICATIONS IN GREAT DEMAND Fourteen Leaflets in the War Information Series of the Bureau of Extension have been issued to-date, commendation of the earlier numbers of which ap- peared in the December number of The Review from President Wilson, Herman Hagedom, Arthur Page, of the World's Work, and others. Of the recent numbers the following expressions give some indica- tion of the estimate placed upon them within and without the state. They relate especially to numbers prepared by Professors L. A. Williams, Hanford, McKie, and Chase. I beg to acknowledge receipt of a collection of your college material. You are doing a thoroughly good work, and it seems to me that you have established one of the most effective and highly intelligent agen- cies of a patriotic and educational character that has been accomplished by any of the state institutions. — Guy Stanton Ford, of the Committee on Public In- formation. Wire me collect price per copy for mailing to 1700 Texas addresses copy of your War Information Se- ries No. 11 — The Present Crisis. — Assistant Direc- tor University of Texas Interscholastic League. The effect of such publications followed up with the personal efforts of men like your faculty must be incalculable in creating the "modern spirit" in North Carolina. — J. I. Wyer, Jr., Director New York State Library. Our class in the teaching of literature in secondary schools has become very much interested in your bulletin number 10, which celebrates Lee, Lincoln, and Washington anniversaries. May I request that you send us fifteen copies for use in our class ? — R E. Young, University of Chicago. Your Extension leaflet, The Present Crisis, reached me today. I truly feel most honored to have my daughter's "Vive la France," in such illustrious company, and I thank you for sending me the copy. If you could spare a few more I would love to have them, as I must send one to her in Belgium. She is in La Parme, that small strip of unoccupied Belgium, and the latest news is that the hospital has been bombed and half of La Parme destroyed, and as I've had no letters for over a month, I am most anxious. — Mrs. G. H. Crawford. Your Extension favor of the 21st instant at hand. Also, (under separate cover) the Extension Leaflets. Thank you. The Leaflet is a gem, brimful of pulse- stirring patriotism. Surely it will be a strong factor for good in the "present crisis." At any time my feeble pen may be of use to you, or through you, to my country, it is at your service. — Raeb (Jno. H. Baer), Author of Columbia's Re- ply to France, in Baltimore Sun. Please send me one hundred and forty copies each of War Information Leaflets Nos. 8, 11, and 13 for use in the schools of Halifax county. — A. E. Akers, County Superintendent of Schools. I have just received copy of your War Information Series Nos. 11 and 13 — "Selections for Speaking in Public Schools," and the "Ideals of Democracy and the World Map." I am very anxious to use these two leaflets in my English class, particularly in the boys' section of the tenth grade. I think this is the finest thing of its kind you have yet gotten out. It is real literature and worthy of a place in our course. — L. Lea White, Principal, Winston High School. We are in receipt of War Information Series No. 11, The Present Crisis. We would like to have one hundred copies to place in the hands of our teachers. — Eloise Rankin, Assistant Superintendent, Meck- lenburg County Schools. Three Numbers Published in March Three important leaflets of the War Information Series, numbers 12, 13 and 14, have been published during March. Number 12, which is entitled, "American Ideals in American Literature," is writ- ten by Professor Edwin Mims, of Vanderbilt, for- merly a member of the University faculty here. It is, in part, a syllabus of the lectures delivered here by him this year in the special seminar for students who are reading for honors, with adequate reading lists for further study. The American background is interpreted and the main tendencies of American life and thought outlined. Leaflet number 13 is a careful study and interpre- tation in the main of President Wilson's statement of peace terms on January 8, last. "The Ideal of De- mocracy and the World Map" is the title of this study by Prof. H. W. Chase. The questions of na- tionality and permanent peace discussed by the presi- dent are illumined by careful comment and analysis. National Ideals in British and American Literature The largest in size and the most important of the numbers of the War Information Series is number 14, which has just come from the press. It is writ- ten in the form of a syllabus, and is a scholarly study by members of the University department of Eng- lish of "National Ideals in British and American Literature." The booklet contains nearly 100 pages, including eight chapters in all. The purpose of the syllabus is to show, in both American and British Lit- THE ALUMNI REVIEW 153 erature, a logical development of national ideals and characteristics that culminate in the passion for dem- ocracy of these kindred nations today. It most ef- fectually relates our literature to present issues, and the modern conception of democracy. PLAN FOR YOUR REUNION NOW The general reunion committee of the University sends the following letter to the classes which will hold reunions at commencement: The University of North Carolina extends an es- cepially hearty welcome to all of her classes which will hold reunions at the approaching commencement. These classes are: 1917, 1913, 1908, 1903, 1898, 1893, 1888, 1868, 1858. Tuesday, June 4, is Alumni Day. The undersigned committee writes to assure you of the warm welcome which you will receive and to offer its help in arranging for your reunion. A list of the members of the class with their present ad- dresses, so far as the committee has been ahle to se- cure these, is enclosed in this letter. You are re- quested to inform the committee of any corrections that should be made in this list. The University is this year rendering splendid ser- vice to the country in its war-time endeavors. Now, as never before, the various classes should foregather in the largest strength possible on the Hill. Your coming will be a joyful occasion to yourself and from the reunion you will gather inspiration, and Alma Mater will be strengthened and benefited. Your presence will aid in cementing more firmly your class spirit and in drawing your class and Alma Mater closer together. There is no time like the present to make your plans. There is no time quite so good as just now to sit down and write your classmates you are com- ing and ask them to meet you on the Hill. A com- plete program should be mapped out for your class during its stay. Come back to your class reunion and to commence- ment. The commencement exercises extend from June 2 to June 5. Be certain to come. Write to the undersigned member of the committee and tell of your plans in reference to your class reunion. CAROLINA MEN REGISTER AT AMERICAN UNION IN PARIS Mr. J. Franklin Aldefer, Secretary of the Ameri- can University Union in Europe, has written Presi- dent Graham that the following University of North Carolina men were registered during December at the Union in Paris : Aiken, John W. ; Belk, W. P. ; Broadhurst, Hugh H. ; Brownlee, Eugene ; Buchan- an, James Ramsey ; Catlett, George F. ; Drane, Rob- ert ; Drew, H. J. ; Higgs, James A., Jr. ; Keesler, Edw. Y. ; Larkin, John T. ; Morrison, A. T. ; Mor- rison, Francis ; O'Brien, J. J. ; Perry, H. H. ; Rum- ple, J. M. ; Squires, James W. ; Stevenson, Reston; Taylor, Walter C. ; Yelverton, Robt. L. ; Zollicof- fer, J. Secretary Aldefer urges that all University men who come to Paris register at the Union and enjoy its privileges. The Union will also be glad to serve relatives and friends of the men in service in any possible way. A fund is being raised by the alumni of the Uni- versity of North Carolina to send small packages of candy and tobacco to the Secretary of the Union in Paris to be distributed to North Carolina men- who visit headquarters there. Contributions may be sent to E. R. Rankin, Secretary, Chapel Hill, N. C. JOHN SPRUNT HILL PRESENTS FLAG In a most impressive ceremony, John Sprunt Hill, of Durham, formally presented to the University bat- talion on the afternoon of March 4th the national flags of Great Britain and France. The flags, to- gether with the battalion's national flag and regimen- tal flag, presented some time ago by Paul Schenck and John L. Patterson, were borne by the color guard to company A, commanded by Capt. G. D. Holding, winner of the flags in the competitive drill held be- tween the companies on Friday and Saturday of the preceding week. President Graham, who had just returned from a northern trip, took part in the exercises, along with Capt. J. Stuart Allen, director of military tactics, Commandant Lieut. Jonathan Leonard, and Adju- tant J. V. Whitfield. WANG BECOMES CHINESE CONSUL AT VANCOUVER Lingoh Wang, A. B. 1912, of Peking, China, has arrived at Vancouver, B. C, and taken up his duties as consul for the Republic of China. Mr. Lingoh Wang in his youth took up the study of Confucius. He passed the first examination held in his own pro- vince, and the certificate qualified him to appear for the great examination held every third year at Peking. He passed with high honors and was one of the students selected to study abroad. He is remembered by members of the class of 1912. Mr. Wang spent six years in the United States, then was called back to China on account of the revolution. Until his arrival at Vancouver to take the consulship, he was employed in the Foreign Office at Peking, under the leadership of Dr. Wu Ting Fang, formerly Ambassador to the United States. 154 THE ALUMNI REVIEW EXTENSION CENTERS ESTABLISHED Extension Centers at Raleigh and at Winston- Salem are now in active operation. At Raleigh the first course consists of five conferences on Russia, given by Professors Greenlaw, Henderson, Pierson, and L. A. Williams. The Committee on Arrange- ments consists of Miss Minnie S. Sparrow, of the City High School ; Miss Elizabeth A. Colton, of Meredith College ; Mrs. E. H. Jordan, Miss Womble, of Peace Institute; and Miss Myrick, of St. Mary's. This committee has sold 150 membership tickets, provided for reading lists at the city libraries, and distributes a syllabus for each conference. Winston-Salem Studies France At the Winston-Salem Center more than 400 peo- ple are being reached by a series of conferences on "America and Her Allies." These conferences are conducted by Professors Chase, Cobb, Dey, Pierson, Hamilton, and Hanford. The first group of confer- ences deals with France. An eight-page printed syllabus has been issued, containing detailed analyses of the following topics, with reading references: "The Common Cause," '"The Physical Scene," "Civ- ilization and Achievement," "History and Institu- tions," "The Debt of America to France," and "France in the War." The committee on arrange- ments consists of Dr. Rondthaler, Chairman; Super- intendent Latham, Secretary. Group of Negroes Reached At Winston-Salem the title "Lafayette Associa- tion" has been chosen by the Extension Center. The membership consists of men and women of every call- ing and profession. Manufacturers and their em- ployees, business men, teachers, and people engaged in social service are members. The work is also du- plicated for a group of negroes, under the leadership of Professor Atkins, and these men and women are interested and intelligent workers. Tercentenary Pageant for Raleigh Planned Both these active and flourishing Centers, con- sisting of 600 members, are emphasizing the ideal "Carry On." The Raleigh Center will be instru- mental in connection with the projected tercentenary of the death of Sir Walter Raleigh next autumn. The Winston-Salem Center is actively interested in developing a great patriotic week, April lst-6th, commemorating the first anniversary of America at war. Thus the Extension Center is not merely a collection of people who come together to listen to a popular lecture. The meetings are conferences, and both lecturers and members are thinking in terms of immediate application to the tasks confronting Am- erica at the present time. The course given at Winston-Salem is now being- given at Raleigh. FAMOUS "EAT" EMPORIUM PASSES INTO HISTORY From the Tar Heel of February 10 the following "human interest" story concerning the passing of the Chapel Hill branch of the Royal Cafe is taken : The last chair was placed aboard, the ropes tight- ened, and the big truck pulled away from the curb and moved slowly down Franklin avenue toward Durham. The small crowd which was waiting on the late mail stood sorrowfully around and watched the proceedings with heavy heart. As the truck, laden with old familiar pieces of furniture, moved away, each man in the crowd heaved a painful sigh and turned and went "to his long home." That truck was bearing away the last earthly ves- tige of Nick's Emporium of Good Eats. The place is closed and as you view it from the street it looks as if it had fallen victim to a German air raid. The long marbled-top counter is gone, the mirrors with their alluring markings "Hot Weinies and Pickled Pig Feet", are lost relics of the past, the electric piano, with its almost ceaseless grind of "Prett} Baby, Pretty Baby," is hushed forever. The sweet aroma of onions is gone never to return and the pleas- ant sound of sizzling- sausages will be beard no more. Never again will you hear the greeting, "Say, Bo, see my line of haberdashery at the Royal Cafe," or "Come around and let my tailor measure you for that suit of clothes at the Royal." If you become hungry about the midnight hour and long for your customary egg sandwich and you make a bolt for the cafe, instead of seeing Nick or Charley, barred doors and the following sign will greet you : NOTICE. Royal Cafe Closed. We closed up and moved our furniture to Durham. We are in the draft and are getting ready for army of Uncle Sam. -,-> , ,, nl Respectfully, Charles I. Apostle, Nick E. Sideees. John H. Vaughan, '04, A. M., '05, has been in New Mexico since 1906. Since going to New Mexico he has steadily advanced in his special field, educa- tion, and in July, 1917, he was appointed dean of the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Me- chanic Arts, where he had been teaching since 1 909. THE ALUMNI REVIEW 155 SUMMER SCHOOL PLANS FOR FINE SERVICE Plans are rapidly maturing for the 1918 session of the University Summer School, and the prelimi- nary announcement of courses and special features has just been publihed by Director N. W. Walker. The outlook for the Summer School this year is most promising, and every effort is being put forth to make it one of the best sessions the school has had. The thirty-first session will extend from June 11 to July 25. In addition to the members of the regular Univer- sity faculty, the greater number of whom will give instruction this summer, there will be many special- ists of ability from other schools. Dr. W. K. Boyd, of Trinity College, will give special courses in His- tory; Dr. Louis W. Rapeer, president of the Uni- versity of Porto Kico, and a distinguished writer on educational topics, will join the staff of the School of Education; Prof. Stuart G. Noble, of Millsaps College, Miss., will give courses in elementary school subjects. Many special lecturers will appear before summer school audiences. Dr. Edwin Minis, formerly of Car- olina, and now head of the English department of Vanderbilt, will deliver ten special lectures, while Prof. Alphonso Smith, of the U. S. Naval Academy. will deliver six lectures. Another lecturer of note will be Dean Thomas M. Balliet, of the School of Peda- gogy, New York University. Prof. Edwin Green- law, Kenan professor of English, is also to give a series of lectures. methods of road maintenance with the use of certain road machines. Motion pictures showing various phases of road construction ending with an amuse- ment reel was one of the features of every evening FIFTH ROAD INSTITUTE HELD The fifth Road Institute for North Carolina was held in Peabody building February 19-22, 1918, un- der the auspices of the University, the State Highway Commission, and the State Geological and Economic Survey. One hundred and twenty-two road officials and engineers from 49 counties of the State were in attendance and actively participated in the program of lectures and demonstrations planned by Mr. W. S. Fallis, State highway engineer and acting director of the Institute, Professor T. F. Hickerson, of the civil engineering department of the University, and Miss H. M. Berry, secretary of the State Geological and Economic Survey. The following topics were given special consider- ation: Road administration and organization, road construction, road maintenance, military roads. The room adjacent to the auditorium in Peabody building was used for exhibits of road machinery, road materials, models, maps, charts, standard de- sign drawings and literature pertaining to road build- ing. Outdoor demonstrations were given in the meeting. MATHEMATICAL CONFERENCE AT GREENVILLE Professor C. 13. Upton, of Teacher's ('ollege, Columbia University, New York, was the principal speaker at the meeting of the Association of Teachers of Secondary Mathematics held March 8th and 9th at Greenville. Papers were read by Mr. W. W. Rankin, Jr., and Mr. J. W. Lasley, both of the University of North Carolina. The keynote to the sessions of the conference was the humanizing of mathematics, relating it to every-day life. SIXTY-ONE STUDENTS MAKE HONOR GRADES Nineteen seniors, twelve juniors, twelve sopho- mores, and eighteen freshmen attained an average grade of "2" or over in the recent examinations and J. L.

Coker (Journal of Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society, vol. xxxiii, nos. 1 and 2, June, 1917). 88 pp., 69 plates, O. Those who watch the development of science in the University will before this have noticed the spec- ial number of the Journal of the Elisha Mitchell So- ciety, published in June, 1917, containing Professor W. C. Coker's memoir on a genus of fungi, the Aman- itas. The recent change in the format of the Journal enables it to handle papers, such as Dr. Coker's, that demand full page illustrations of considerable size. Of such illustrations there are over sixty, almost all reproductions of photographs. In spite of the half- tone process, that can never do justice to sharp detail in the original, these plates are not easily surpassed. The frontispiece, too, in color, is excellent. We learn that publication was made with the aid of a grant from the Elizabeth Thompson Science Fund of Boston, Mass. Thirty-five species are described. Attention is paid to variation, specially in color, proportions, and size of the spores. One admirable feature is that the descriptions are based on the study of living speci- mens and on very many of each species. The work of collecting has been pursued with vigor, and the Chapel Hill habitat, in the case of the great ma- jority of the species, is recorded in praiseworthy de- tail. Dr. Coker's memoir adds to the record which science is making of the hinds of things that consti- tute the material world. This record grows steadily larger as with increasing skill we become more and more able to distinguish bodies, and substances, from one aother. A hundred and fifty years ago, a few small v olumes sufficed to include descriptive diagnoses of all the various minerals, plants, and animals recog- nized at the time. Today, shelves upon shelves of books with hundreds of thousands of illustrations lake the place of Linnaeus' modest "System of Na- ture." Long since, the list of natural objects be- came too large for one to have any real familiarity with it as a whole. Specialization, as a law of mod- < rn life, is nowhere more necessary than in the work of classification. Only with specialization come the skill and analytical power that are required to search out successfully, as Dr. Coker has done, the precise features that characterize species. It may not be amiss to indicate the two chief points of view under which descriptive papers, like the one before us, fall. In the first place we have gradually come to know that our lot, as human beings, is closely interknit with that of other organisms, some of which are physiological friends to us, some foes. And so from a directly utilitarian standpoint we are be- coming, in these days, properly anxious to learn the different kinds of plants and animals that surround us. From a second standpoint the descriptive study of a group of species and races, consisting as it does in the determination of the points that mark them off from one another, is to be looked on as a necessary precursor to experimental studies of the highest in- terest, to the investigation of the conditions under which recognizable alterations arise in living matter. Every accurate work on classification is thus, in out- look at least, a path to the study of heredity arid the effects of environment. From both standpoints Dr. Coker's paper is a contribution of permanent value. H. V. Wilson. State House Anthology 1917, by O. J. Coffin, '09. Raleigh, Edwards & Broughton, 1917. 79 pp. D. $1.00. "To whom it may concern, especially Edgar Lee Masters- — if he ever sees it — this is a public admis- sion that I am toting licker of my own making in another feller's jug. I freely confess that I invented neither the name Anthology nor the free verse form." With the above "Acknowledgment," O. J. Coffin, '09, gathers into a booklet of seventy-nine pages, char- acterizations, which appeared previously in the Ral- eigh Times, of seventy-two members of the North Carolina state government and General Assembly of 1917. The sketches, clever to the "nth" power, and evi- THE ALUMNI REVIEW 157 dencing Coffin's intimate knowledge of Kaleigh and the state's administrators and solons, include the following University men: Governor Bickett, O. Max Gardner, Walter Murphy, Wiley M. Person, Uufus A. Doughton, Alfred M. Scales, Charles A. Jonas, Clem Wright, Matt H. Allen, Stahle Linn, .1. K. McCrary, G. R. Ward, L. C. Grant, W. D. Pol lock, Chase Brenizer, W. H. S. Burgwyn, A. C. Dal- ton, W. L. Long, J. A. Gray, Jr., J. E. Long, H. W. Stubbs, R. W. Winston, Jr., David P. Dellinger, W. A. Graham, J. Y. Joyner, J. Bryan Grimes, J. S. Manning, Piatt D. Walker, and Walter Clark. The presence on the title page of the January issue of Studies in Philology of three such distinguished names as those of Sheldon and Ford, of Harvard, and Nitze, of Chicago, serves as a measure of the reputa- tion which this University journal is fast achieving of being one of the foremost organs of Americau scholarship. The excellent policy of grouping the materials so that each issue contains several related t-tudies in a single field, has been followed in thi present case with good effect, the January issue de- voted to Romance philology and German. Professo- Sheldon's contribution is an interesting comparison vf certain English and Old French phrases. Profes- sor Nitze writes on one of the French Perceval ro- mances, and Professor Ford gives a report on the present movement toward the extension of Spanish teaching in America, in its relation with our devel- oping South American interests. Of the University faculty, Dr. Campion is represented by a solid study of the manuscripts of the Tristan romance of Ulrich von Turheim, with a critical text of a portion of the work. Professor Toy has a beautifully written ar- ticle on the Mysticism of Novalis, containing sympa- thetic interpretations of "The Hymns to the Night'' considered in their relation to Novalis' life and per- sonality. The contents of the number were collected and edited bv Dr. Dev. Dr. A. Caswell Ellis, '94, professor of the Philoso- phy of Education in the University of Texas, is the author of The Money Value of Education, a bulletin recently issued by the United States Bureau of Edu- cation. The bulletin recognizes that much of the value of education is not to be mcas\ired by dollars and cents but it also recognizes that education plays a very large part in producing and retaining wealth both in a nation and among individuals. Quoting freely from many studies which have been made of this question and presenting in graphic form some of the most striking results of these studies, the paper presents in a most interesting way the in- controvertible fact that education has a distinct dol- lars and cents value to the recipients. The state may well expend large sums in financing its schools be- cause in so doing it makes a permanent form of in- vestment which pays wonderful returns in the in- creased earning and productive capacity of its citi- zens. For the same reasons, well-authenticated, the in- dividual may well invest in an education for him- self and for his children. Their capacity to earn is measurably increased, with every year of preparation up to a certain point. Likewise it appears that edu- cation pays the individual in terms of success, rank in society, prominence in state or national affairs, etc. The bulletin makes very interesting reading as well as contributes a valuable piece of literature to the many studies of values in an education. During the present academic year (1917-18), a series of lectures has been arranged by the Depart- ment of Mathematics. These lectures are designed for the benefit of all students in mathematics and engineering. They will deal with the basic princi- ples and fundamental conceptions of mathematics, and with certain specific problems in engineering. All the lectures are delivered in the large room in Chemistry Hall at seven-thirty on Monday evenings. Lectures have already been delivered as follows : by Professor Cain, on "Mathematics. Historically Con- sidered" ; by Dr. Henderson, on "Aspects of Mod- em Geometry"; and by Mr. Lasley, on "The Origin and Development of Number."

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 1 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! ,A.^A,.
