CY THOMPSON SAYS— 

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.

Number 6 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



In a communication appearing on another page, 

Hugh Hester, '16, writing from A. 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

careiul and wide reading of alumni 

publications of other colleges and 
universities, it is absolutely sure that to date Caro-

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

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.

LETTERS FROM THE FRONT AND CAMP

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.

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

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.

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-

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

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

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

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.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 



The Amanitas of the Eastern United States, 
By W. C. 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.

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." The other lectures, 
for the spring term, with dates, are as follows: 

Mr. Hiekerson: War Mapping and the Use of 
Scales. March 18. 

Mr. Rankin: Some Recent Tendencies in Ele- 
mentary Mathematics. April 1. 

Professor Stacy : Subject to be announced. April 
15. 

Mr. Hobbs: The Practical Value of Algebra. 
April 30. 



Under the direction of the American Historical 
Association, Dr. J. G. deR. Hamilton, of the Depart- 
ment of History, spent the weeks March 11-23 at 
Camp Greene delivering a series of lectures to the 
soldiers on American History. He was preceded by 
R. D. W. Connor, of Raleigh, and will be followed 
by Dr. W. W. Pierson, Jr., also of the University 
Department of History, who will lecture for two 
weeks at the camp in April.

— 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 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!
