To Our Policyholders: 

If you are insured under a New England Mutual policy issued prior to April 6, 1917, 
you are privileged to eiigage in military or naval service of the United States, oti 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 teU you about the superior service we have to offer. See us or write us now.

Number 7 


For one year America lias been at war. From 

the first moment of the nation's entry into the fight 

for world liberty, Carolina has

that has been has been set forth 
from time to time in these pages as far as the com- 
plete story could be given. All in all, it is the sort 
of story that fills the heart with pride — 984 men in 
the service and all honoring Alma Mater by carrying 
her spirit into the fight. 


During this first year of war, attention has been 

centered upon Carolina men in camp in America. 

From today forward this attention

tlenelds ot Europe. J^aiayette,

General Pershing placed, during the drive towards 
Amiens, the American forces at the disposal of the 
Allies, it has shifted; and in the future, as Carolina 
men take their places in the liattle line nf freedom, 
it is but inevitable that the supreme sacrifice will 
be paid by many of Carolina's sons. 

There will be great difficulty in keeping an ac- 
curate list of the killed, wounded, and missing. But 
The Review is going to attempt this in so far as it 
can, and it calls upon all alumni to assist it in every- 
way possible in making complete its Honor Roll. 


The Review called the attention of the alumni 
last year to the fine action of an alumnus, who, upon 

leaving for France, wrote 
AN EXAMPLE Carolina into his will. In 

FROM VANDERBILT ^, -.^ ■, ■ . ^. tt 

the March issue oi the Van- 

derbilt Alumnus are given the details of a provision 
made by an alumnus going overseas whereby Van- 
derbilt is to receive $5,000 from war insurance 
money in the event the Vanderbilt man does not 

The thought uppermost in this man's mind was 
that through loan funds he had been able to work 
his way through college, and he wanted other young 
men in the future to have a similar opportunity — 
not the opportunity to secure free scholarships, but 

loans to be repaid after the training secured in col- 
lege began to bear fruit in the serious work of the 
student's after-college life. 

Of the hundreds of Carolina men now at Camp 
Jackson and other camps, many will soon be going 
overseas. The Review points with pride to the ex- 
ample of the Carolina and Vanderbilt men who, in 
making ready for their great adventure, were 
thoughtful of what they had received. It makes 
mention of the fine act here in the hope that it will 
be multiplied many times. 


Among the many alumni on the campus at the 

second Virginia game, The Review noticed some 

four or six representatives of the 
1908 ON THE j f j^Qg ^ j^ f ^^ 


double puvpose of oceiug the game 

and (especially) working out a program for a stun- 
ning big reunion. To quote the words of one of the 
class (not present) who in his college days was gen- 
erally referred to as "Miss," the class is to have a 
"real nice cutting up time." We do not know just 
what that is, but from the determination of Duke 
Robins, Herb Guuter, Tom Simmons, and Will 
Woodard, it to be expected that 1908 will set a 
new record in reunions. 

At the same time, The Review heard of other 
classes getting under way for an unusually effective 
alumni performance on alumni day. 


"Girls and boys of x\merica, you are the hope of 

the world." Thus speaks Hermann Hagedorn in a 

little book published in 1917 which 

THE HOPE OF j^^ ^^ j^g ^^ jj^g h^ndiS of every

alumnus and every high school girl 

and boy in North Carolina. 

We employ this quotation here for two reasons : 
(1) To impress upon the girls and boys of N^orth 
Carolina the supreme necessity of preparing them- 
selves, through strict attention to high school duties 
and later attendance at college, for the work of shap- 
ing and auiding American democracv after it shall 
have been saved by their older brothers from the 
threat of auiiiliilation with which it is now con- 



fronted; and (2) to lay upon the alumni the re- 
sponsibility of guiding these girls and boys in the 
all-important matter of making the right decision 
as to the continuation of their education. 

We are making no special plea for Carolina, even 
though we know that through her courses in military 
science and the rearrangement of her curriculum, 
she offers the IT to 21 year-old boy the sort of in- 
struction that will stand the acid test of the battle 
line or the work of peace. But we are insisting that 
every Carolina man, whether in the school room or 
on the street, shall emphasize the supreme import- 
ance of every school girl and boy securing the maxi- 
mum education possible ; for, in very serious reality, 
they are the "hope of the world I" 


The question is being raised all over North Caro- 
lina, "Shall we carry on educationally ?" As The 
TvEviEW noted in an earlier issue, 

SHALL WE Wilson County has answered the ques- 
CARRY ON? . . . . •, ^ ^ , ^.i 

tion in the right sort oi way — aliirma- 

tively, with a big bond issue for the improvement 
of the city schools and a county-wide tax for an eight- 
months country school term. 

The question has not only involved the public 
schools. It has also been asked in all seriousness of 
the University and other State institutitms, the ques- 
tion having been raised by the Governor and the 
Council of State in re the selling of the bonds au- 
thorized by the legislature of 1917. President Gra- 
ham, and others associated with him, has answered 
the question, and the Council of State, with the ex- 
ception of Treasurer Lacy, has been convinced of the 
soundness of the answer: North Carolina must car- 
ry on. 

In commenting upon this question, the State 
Journal of April 12 speaks as follows: 

Certainly no one will now contend that the bonds 
when authorized were not essential. The truth 
is that, as the nation so long postponed national de- 
fense against an open foreign threat, so we in an 
almost superstitious dread of bonds, procrasti- 
nated in the face of internal decay. We announced 
almost grandiose schemes of education and put them 
in the hands of devoted men whom we all but starved, 
not only of returns for themselves, but of equip- 
ment with which to work. We announced the humane 
principles of care for the insane and the unfortunates 
and then left maniacs in common jails and aban- 
doned the diseased not only to die themselves but to 
infect the healthy body of society. Just as the war 
came upon the country to demand the instant pre- 
paration for defense delayed, so the bonds author- 
ized in aid of the institutions of the State meant 

that the money they call for must be had or the 
State would suffer not only a catastrophe of con- 
tinued suffering but the loss of its moral grip as 

We believe that not only North Carolina capital 
will lie found ready to lend the State the money at 
terms below the prevailing market, but that it will do 
so without permitting the act to be reflected in the 
response of the public to the call to take their quota 
of the Liberty Bonds. Surely there would be some- 
thing akin to criminal folly in arguing the neces- 
sity to support the government as in anywise a valid 
excuse for the continuing neglect of the youth we 
are training for the future or the helpless classes 
whose protection we owe, for the good of ourselves 
and of the nature as well as the permanency of them. 


An interesting appointment was made today when 
the war department issued an order announcing the 
appointment of L. Ames Brown, of Greenville, N. 
C, as a first lieutenant in the army. The order 
follows : 

"Special Order No. G036 — The appointment of 
L. Ames Brown as first lieutenant, national army, 
is announced. He will report in person to the chief, 
military intelligence branch, executive division. 
General Staff, Washington, D. C, for temporary 
duty and upon completion thereof he will proceed 
to New York, N. Y., for service on intelligence 
duty and will not be assigned to any other duty or 
to the command of troops under this appointment." 

Mr. Brown is a newspaper man. He represented 
the Raleigh News and Observer as its Washington 
correspondent for some time and resigned to ac- 
cept a position in the Washington bureau of the New 
York Sun. At the time of his appointment he was 
holding a position under George Creel on the com- 
mittee on public information. 

Brown is a good writer and has written some very 
able articles in a number of magazines, including a 
series of stories relating to prohibition for Colonel 
George Harvey, in the North Ajnerican Review. 
Brown is within the draft age and is unmarried. — 
Greensboro News, March 18. 


N. G. Gooding, of New Bern, won the Carr medal 
in the junior oratorical contest on the night of 
April 3. His subject was "The Growth of an Idea." 

Prof. E. C. Branson, of the department of Rural 
Sociology and Economics, spent the week April 8-13 
in New York City in attendance upon the meeting 
of the National Association on Country Life. 



Nine Hundred and Eighty-Four Men Have Gone Into Service 

A regrnlar feature of The Review from this date 
until the end of the war will be the keeping of the 
War Record of Carolina men. In order that this 
record may be full and accurate, the co-operation of 
every alumnus is urgently requested.

Arrived Safe Overseas 

Clyde Miller, '17, sends a card announcing his 
safe arrival overseas. 

Col. Ellison L. Gilmer has arrived safely overseas. 


As a result of a drive made during the week 
March 18-23 by the University Library for books 
for the soldiers and sailors, 1G70 volumes were re- 
ceived, the greater part of them coming from the 
student body and residents of Chapel Hill. Roughly 
classified, they were divided approximately as fol- 
lows : Fiction 600, non-fietion 500, texts, mostly 
French, 570. The contributions from Hillsboro 
and Cedar Grove numbered less than 200. To 
stimulate interest in the campaign a pen six feet 
square and two feet high was placed in the center 
of the Library lobby and every one contributing 
books was given an opportunity of guessing the to- 
tal number of books placed in the pen. At the close 
of the contest on Saturday afternoon, March 23, 
^I. R. Robbins was declared winner, having guessed 
the number 1497. The actual number at that time 
was 1495. The books have been shipped to Camp 
Greene as a part of the Camp Greene Library. 


The Senior Stunt was given in Gerrard Hall on 
the night of April 4 and proved of unusual inter- 
est. Douglas Macifillan and .John Terry were the 
authors of the sketch entitled "The Fall of the House 
of Hohenzollern."

New York — Night — September 

The bright feverish afternoon — full of farewells, 
of gripping of hearts and hands — ends in a rose- 
and-bhie twilight. 

Hoarse blasts from the steamer-horn, a shower 
of misty raiu succeeding each. 

The chains of Fate clink on the receding gang- 

Friendly hand and friendly face signal from the 
outermost end of the wharf. 

Our tug-drawn |iai|ueh()t ])auses mid-channel, de- 
scribes a leisurely quadrant, stoj^s — shudders— pulses 
— is off to the ocean, under its own power. 

A magic alchemist, the imagination. Out of the 
v?est two small shapely cloud-masses rise blue-black, 
and precede us out to sea with the night wind. Our 
aeroplane convoy we call them. 

As we pass the chaste goddess a strain from (Air- 
men comes to mind: la Hberte, la liberte ! 

Tomb of James Knox Polk, 
Chickamauga Park, Tenii. 

With night the city's rows of heaven-reaching 
windiiws grow light and still more light. Then dis- 
tance begins to dim them all. To one side a search- 
light's sweeping V. To the other a wave-grey hor- 
izon trimmed with incandescents. 

The ship begins to roll — the moon comes up. 
Presently we turn full into the moon-path. Other 
lights faint — fail — and disappear. 

The white wake of the vessel. The stars. Quiet 


We reach the border-sea-of-danger. 

The sunset flaunts its crimson warning-signal. 

Night-time, passing through the evening waters, 
the vessel traces curious half-moons and eccentric 
rail-fence patterns. 

Decks are dead, except for the whisper-whisper 
of the engines — and, from two chairs drawn deep 
back in the utter darkness of the deck, a low mas- 
culine murmur accompanied by the occasional light 
short laughter of a woman. Life's pulse — in the 
very bosom of death. 

Overhead the clouds are banks of grey moss; the 
stars, occasional glow-worms twinkling intermittent- 

I open my hands, full of messages that have sped 

me away. The letters escape like white sea-gulls 
into the ocean-night. 

There I There in the curving wake of the ship 
glimmer and geam and glancing light appear ! 'Phos- 
phorus' 'i 'Flectricitv caused by friction' 'i "Little 
bugs' ? 

Thoughts — thoughts that are following me from 
the homeland twining with those other thoughts 
that 1 have just loosed in the darkness. 


The dining-room is not full. 

Groups. And, where the groups are gathered ov- 
er the elaborate entremets, there are alternate bursts 
of gay chatter in a key not entirely true and — grim 
silences that even old superstition could not ascribe 
to an angel's passing over. 

Salon-spaces, on the other hand, are crowded. Ev- 
en Poor Butterfly is there. Someone howls Hawaiian 
hulas — and someone else: Ouvre tes yeu.x bleus, 
ma migiioune. 

Little groups of earnest ladies discuss latest 
marine horrors in their most intimately deathly de- 



An intelligent face is intent upun the Sonnets 
from the Portuguese. Some nervous intellectual 
scans an anticiue copy of the Revue des Deux Mondes. 

Youth discovers the old-gold of a well-worn jest: 
"We are only a mile from land," it tells us. "Only 
a mile from land ?" Yea, verily, "Straight down." 

Ebullient wags chuckle over the tale of that pen- 
ny-wise passenger who deferred a shi])-board hair- 
cut, saying: "But if we're going to lie sunk T

Combination of climTs upon the deck railing, cran-

With noontime and the mounting tide, we are 
off up the river. 

After luncheon, we who are perched with fine 
unconcern atop the life-rafts, laze and smoke and 
swap ideas. The honeymoon sentiment seems ac- 
ceptable in all quarters; for the romantic promise 
of song and story, the early morning taste of ful- 
fillment, are true and righteous altogether. 

A turbid yellow-brown tide rides with us. Long 
clear canals bring down to the current the reflected

One does surrender one's ticket at the gate — a

French blue and American khaki posted there say

and its artery betrayed by an only lamp ? O times ! 

By the deserted Place de la Concorde. The cities 
of France muse in their statued calm and in dark-

vards to break upon the sanctity of their years old 



grief and pride. The monolith — whose meaning 
may to our age be this: ''I have seen empires rise 
and fall; I shall see others." 

Off and away! Angling into this street, cutting 
into that. 

Finally, lost in the midst of the contortioned rues 
and ruelles that show never a guiding light, we real-

a letter to 
the Ne ws 


Aviation Service in Italy 

The following excerpt is taken from 
Woollcott's parents which appeared in 
and Oiserver. 

I had a wonderful flight yesterday, over 
thousand feet, at which height I could easily see 
the blue Adriatic. It's not half so lonely up there 
alone as it might seem; the ground and houses, 
the fields and orchards seem very friendly and don't 
look as if they would hurt you for worlds. Wlien 
you rise from the ground, things begin rapidly to 
grow smaller until you get to 2,000 feet; after 
that, sizes don't change sn much, but altitude can 
be approximated by the seemingly lessening dis- 
tance between things. These little towns, connected 
by the clear white lines, called roads down beneath, 
])resent a beautiful picture, far prettier than the 
dull drab j^hotographs you see made fr(un the air. 
An amateur though, like myself, has little time to 
revel in the l:>eauties of nature below and the sensa- 
tions people think come so high in the air. By the 
time he uses his eyes to keep constant watch on the 
pressure gauge, his oil pressure gauge, bis tachom- 
eter or revolutiiin counter for the engine, his altim- 
eter, his baragraph, the clouds and other machines 
in the air ; by the time he uses his ears to listen to 
the humming ( called roaring by the unintitated) 
of the engine; by the time he uses his hands to work 
his aileron controls and his elevator controls, to cor- 
rect his gas pressure by pumping or letting out the 
pressure, to put on the gas or cut it out when climb- 
ing or coming down, to turn over his barograph to 
see if it is registering the proper line for his test, and 
to use his handkerchief to blow his frozen nose; 
■by the time he uses his feet to work his rudder con- 
trols and his whole body to twist about watching for 
other machines and leaning over to get his correct 
bearing from beneath — by this time, I say, even if 
the day is calm and pretty, the amateur has his at- 
tention pretty well taken up by the necessai-y things, 
so he decides to wait until the next time to become 
inspired by the elevating work. 

I finished mv first brevet last Sunday, taking my 

final long flight on the bumpiest day I have ever 
been in the air. Flying is a wonderful game, but 
there's too much work on a bumpy day for me to 
enjoy it. I'm entirely too busy keeping my machine 
level to look about and enjoy the things below. 
Around 3,600 feet on a bumpy day I feel something 
like a cross between a juggler and a slack rope 
walker. On a calm day, it's like floating down a 
smooth stream in a canoe.

I came over here as the chief operating surgeon

Lieut. J. P. Jones, all University of North Caroli-

three other N. C. men. I have seen a number of

I received the February number of The Review 
but none since. Feb. 14th I was transferred from 
the Infantry to the Cavalry and ordered here, where 
I have been assigned to assist in the organization of 
the 308th Cavalry. The people of this city and 
state have been exceedingly nice to us since coming 
and they propose to adopt this regiment as "Ari- 
zona's Own," and enclosed I am handing you some 
marching songs proposed. 

I have met several T^niversity men here and Lt. 
Grismsley of Greensboro is in the regiment. The 
Cavalry is great work if one does not get killed in 
the making. I once thought that I was a good horse- 
man and a bit skilled in riding but to see me per- 
form now one would think that I had recently left 
Buffalo Bill's Wild West Shows. Doing all sorts 
of monkey stunts on a running horse, mounting and 
dismounting at all sorts of gaits is our daily pastime.

of riding thru the streets of Berlin to the tune of

Thomas Burton and Will Anderson of the Wilson High School Win the Decision in Sixth 
Annual Final Contest of the High School Debating Union 

The sixth annual final contest of the High School 
Debating TJnion came to a successful conclusion on 
April 12th in Gerrard Hall, when ilessrs. Thomas 
Burton and Will Anderson, representing the Wil- 
son High School, triumphed over all others and 
won the award of the Aycock Memorial Cup. Their 
opponents were Miss Nelle Haynes and Mr. Wills 
Staley representing the Jamestown High School. 
The query was: Resolved, That Congress should 
enact a law providing for the compulsory arbitra- 
tion of industrial disputes. Jamestown upheld the 
afSrmative and Wilson defended the negative. 

This year's contest, in point of interest and en- 
thusiasm shown by the contestants and the spirit 
of good sportsmanship evidenced was easily the most 
successful yet held. Two hundred and sixteen de- 
baters representing 54 high schools came to the Uni- 
versity for the final contest. Their stay at the 
University was an enjoyable one and the knowledge 
of the University and its work which they received 
will prove helpful both to them and the University. 
The debaters coming for the finals represented all 
sections of the State from Haywood county in the 
west to Camden in the east. There were present 106 

girl debaters. 

The Preliminaries 

The 216 debaters who participated in the final 
contest had all been successful in their triangular 
debates on March 29th. in which series 1200 debaters 
representing 300 schools in 93 counties participated. 

A general meeting of debaters and teachers was 
held in the auditorium of the Peabody Imildiiig on 
Thursday afternoon, April 11th. Professor IST. 
W. Walker presided over this meeting and extended 
a hearty welcome to the visitors. The teams on the 
affirmative were divided by lot in ten sections for 
the first preliminary on Thursday night and the 
teams on the negative were likewise divided in ten 
sections for this preliminary. From each of these 
sections one team was chosen for a second prelim- 
inary on Friday morning, April 12th. The schools 
which had teams making the second preliminary 
on the affirmative were: Waynesville, Jamestown, 
Graham, Greensboro, Wendell, Sanford, Goldsboro, 

Concord, Burgaw and Brevard Institute; on the 
negative: Wilson, Jamestown, Aberdeen, Selma, Bre- 
vard Institute, Concord, Gastonia, Hertford, Dob- 
son and Burgaw. The schools having teams in the 
second preliminary, both affirmative and negative, 
were: Concord, Burgaw, Jamestown and Brevard 


The Final Debate 

The audience which crowded into Gerrard Hall 
to hear this debate overran the hall. President Gra- 
ham, who presided, declared that the debates had 
come to be a real influence in state life. He spoke of 
the closeness of the contest and praised the splendid 
spirit of sportsmanship which prevailed. He spoke 
of the winners of the Aycock Cup in the past, stat- 
ing that at each final debate honor should be given 
to those who had previously won the award of the 
cup. These schools are: Pleasant Garden, Winston- 
Salem, Wilson, Graham and Waynesville. 

The Speakers 

Wills Staley opened the argument for Jamestown 
on the affirmative. His effort was to show that 
compulsory arbitration will eliminate strikes and 
lockouts, that it is the only remedy for present con- 
ditions and is sound in theory. He pointed out 
that present methods fail to cope successfully with 
the difficulty. He showed the principles of our 
society to be based upon compulsion. 

Thomas Burton opened the argument for Wilson 
on the negative. He declared that compulsory ar- 
bitration was un-American. He emphasized that it 
had resulted in failure in many places where it has 
been tried and argued that the principle of compul- 
sory arbitration involved involuntary servitude, and 
so would not be tolerated by the American people. 

Miss Nelle Haynes, second on the affirmative, 
spoke for the substitution of the rule of reason for 
the rule of force, stating that the plan of compul- 
sory arbitration is sound in principle and practica- 
ble in operation. She brought out the analogy of 
the courts and traced the success of the law in Aus- 

Will Anderson, second on the negative, cited many 
cases where the law had failed, attacked the theory 



of the law, and suggested substitutes such as tlie 
■Canadian plan for boards of investigation backed 
by public opinion, and government ownership or 

The speeches and rejoinders on both sides were 
spirited and forceful, showing that the speakers 
had the keenness, the enthusiasm, and the fire of 
real debaters. The debate took rank as one of the 
closest and best in the history of iinal deliates in 
the. Union. 

The decision of the judges, Messrs. H. H. Wil- 
liams, L. P. McGehee, H. M. Wagstatf, Edwin 
Greenlaw and W. S. Bernard, stood 4 to 1 in favor 
of the negative. The Wilson high school, which 
had won the cup in 1915, thereby gained the dis- 
tinction of having won it the second time. 

Professor N". W. Walker presented the Aycock 
Cup to the winning team. He praised the work 
which the contestants had done and spoke of the 
value to the schools and communities resulting from 
the contests of the Union. 

This year for the first time gold medals were 
given to the four debaters who participated in the 
final debate, all of whom had already won on their 
respective sides. These medals bore the seal of the 
University and were appropriately inscribed. They 
were the gift of President Graham and Dean Noble. 
Professor Walker j^reseuted these medals also. 

Immediately after the debate a reception was ten- 
dered the visitors by the Di and Phi societies in 
Bynum Gymnasium. This was the closing feature 
in the program of entertainment. 

Success of the Debating Union 

Since its organization in 1913, the High School 
Debating Union has met with remarkable success. 
It has grown and has carried with it helpful results 
for debaters, the schools, the communities and the 

In carrying through to a successful conclusion 
the final contest the committee in charge found every- 
where in Cliapel Hill a splendid s]iirit of co-oper- 
ation. The homes of Chapel Hill entertained ISO 
girls and ladies who came for the debate. Mem- 
bers of the faculty and othei's acted as judges in 
tlic prcliiiiinarics and in the final deliate, and Uni- 
versity students acted as officers in the preliminaries. 
Students entertained the men and boys in the dorm- 
itories and co-o])erated in giving the visitors an en- 
joyable time. Other agencies in Chapel Hill cnn- 
tril'Mited nuiterially to the success of the contest. 

The Debating Union is a part of the University's 
Extension plan. It will be pushed with still fur- 
ther vigor next year. 

The list of schools taking part in the final con- 
test was : Aberdeen, Atlantic, Boonville, Brevard 
Institute, Burgaw, Churchland, Clayton, Clinton. 
Concord, Cornelius, Creedmoor, Denver, Dobson, 
Dunn, Edenton, Fairmont, Falcon, Falling Creek, 
Farmer, Fremont, Gastonia, Goldsboro, Graham, 
Greensboro, Grifton, Grover, Harmony, Hertford. 
High Point, Hillsboro, Jamestown, LaGraugt, 
Lowe's Grove, Macclesfield, Mount Holly, Ndbo, 
North Charlotte, North Wilkesboro, Oak Hill. Park- 
ton, Red Oak, Roanoke Rapids, Robersonville, Rock 
Hill, Rowland, Sanford, Selma, South Mills, Way- 
uesville, Wendell, Wentworth, White Plains, Wil- 
son, Winecoff, Woodland. 

Asheville won the inter-scholastic tennis tourna- 
ment. The track meet was postponed until April 27. 


Editok, Tuk IiEviEw: 

Sir : — In the absence of my son, E. H. Woodard, 
of the clas sof 1908, I took the lilierty of opening 
your letter of the 25th inst. inviting him to a re- 
union of his class at Chapel Hill, in June next. 

It may interest some of his classmates to learn 
that Henry, when I heard fr(mi his last week, was in 
a training camp, with the Scotch Highlanders, at 
Seaford, Sussex County, England. He first tried to 
enlist in the U. S. Army, then the Navy, in both of 
which he was rejected on account of defective vision. 
Pie then joined the Royal Canadian Flying Squad- 
ron, in Sept., 1917, and after remaining with that 
branch of the service until Nov. 9th, was, upon his 
final physical examination, rejected for defective 
vision, with an honorable discharge from the service. 
He crossed over to Vancouver, B. C, at once and 
volunteered in the Scotch Highland Regiment, and 
is now a mem])i'r of Co. G, Itltli Canadian Reserve 

On his trip over, his ship was attacked by a Ger- 
man U-boat, which fired two torpedoes at her, miss- 
ing with the last by only about twenty feet. The 
torpedo boat destroyer, acting as a convoy to his ship, 
fired a depth lumib at the German lioat and sent her 
to the bottom. 

He was in London during one of the recent enemy 
air raids and gives me an interesting, and quite a 
thrilling, account of what happened under his own 

I know he would be delighted to attend the re- 
union (if his class were he here. 

Yours very truly,

Dr. K. P. Battle, Dr. W. S. Long, and Nineteen Eighteen Take Part in 
Interesting Campus Event 

With pomp and ceremony a rooted scion of the 
Davie Pophxr, silent witness of every event in the 
long history of the University and comparable with 
The Washington Elm of the Harvard campus in the 
esteem in which it has been held by Carolina sons 
and daughters, was planted at the chapel hour on 
the morning of March 15th. Dr. W. S. Long pre- 

Dr. W. S. Long, Dk. K. P. Battle, '49, and 
The Davie Poplar, Jr. 

sented the scion. Dr. K. P. Battle set forth the tra- 
ditions concerning the parent tree, and W. M. York, 
president of tlie class of Nineteen Eighteen, to- 
gether with his classmates, received the scion and 
planted it just northeast of the old "Davie". 
Dr. Battle Gives History of Tree 
Dr. Battle stated that in a letter from Governor 
Wm. D. Moseley, of Florida, written in 1S4;3, he 
spoke affectionately of the "Old Poplar" as flour- 
ishing when he was a trustee in the Universitv in 

1818, a hundred years in the past from the present 
year of 1918. 

In 1844 a talented student, Edmund DeBerry 
Covington, published in the University Magazine a 
poem of decided merit in the Scotch dialect on the 
favorite tree, in which he predicted that it would 
soon pass away. The following verses were quoted 
to show the character of the poetry. 

Ye keu ye stand ou classic gruu', 
And reck na win, nor rflin, nor sun; 
For weel ye trow our lo 'e you 've won, 

Auld tottering f rien ' ! 
But now I grieve your course is run, 

Ower late to men '. 

A douce auld Tree, ye lang hae stood; 
But Time, wha recks na ill nor good, 
With blasting tooth has sapjied your blude 

An' left his mark, 
I 'd fain uphaud ye an I could 

Auld Patriarch. 

Notwithstanding Covington's prediction of early 
dissolution the noble tree renewed its youth and 
(luring the dark days of the University-, 1868-75, 
under Peconstruction legislation, we find the elo- 
quent tribute of Mrs. Cornelia Phillips Spencer over 
the desolation of the campus published in a news- 
paper of the day. 

"I-^or 75 years the Old Poplar has spread a be- 
nignant shade over the gay throngs that wandered 
through the campus. The old tree still stands but 
over grounds that are now empty and forlorn. The 
dry grass rustles to my solitary footsteps and a rab- 
bit starts out from yonder tangle and solitary rose- 
bush. I look around and see nothing to disturb the 
profound and melancholy stillness. A negro girl 
in a pink frock is leaning on the college well and a 
few of the negro soldiers are passing in the distance 
towards the village. The sun shines down on the 
Old East and the Old West, the Library halls, and 
the Recitations rooms ; but the doors are all closed — 
the place is haunted. Strong and ineffaceable mem- 
ories rush unbidden and my eyes are dimmed as I 
gaze on this Niobe sitting thus discrowned and child- 

A few days after this touching lament was writ- 
ten the hearts of all friends of the University were 
saddened by the tidings that our majestic tree had 
Ix'cn struck by lightning and probably killed. This 



was on August 7, 1873. At the Reopening in the 
autumn of 1875 there were bright leaves giving 
hopes of renewed life. Eighteen years afterward, 
in 1893, Edward P. Willard, the poet of the grad- 
uating class, in forcible and eloquent words, de- 
scribes the terrific storm, which tore ntf its 

Mr. Williard's prediction of renewed vigor 
proved true, but alas! on the 6th of August, 1902, 
the great top-most branches of our noble tree were 
torn off by a terrific storm. Again there was mourn- 
ing in the University circles, but again new branches 
began to grow and although its beauty is marred, 
the Old Poplar stands majestic. 

The Pipe of Peace was first smoked in 1883, 
when Horace H. Williams was master of ceremon- 
ies. Caps and gowns were first worn in 1891, 
when Andrew H. Patterson was Poet. 


In a letter to the Editor, Theodore H. Price, Edi- 
tor of Commerce and Finance, has the following to 
say concerning the Extension Leaflets of the T^^ni- 

I want to congratulate you most heartily upon 
the work you are doing with your Extension Leaf- 
lets. I have expressed my appreciation of it in the 
enclosed paragraph, written for publication in my 
paper. Commerce and Finance. 

Because we cannot resist the impulse to com- 
mend really good things, we go out of our way to 
say that the University of North Carolina is doing 
a very great service in the publication of the leaf- 
lets issued by its extension service. They are so 
interesting and stimulating that we could write sev- 
eral i>ages about them, lint the lack of space prevents. 

Among the leaflets received during the past week 
we note as especially informative one upon "National 
Ideals in British and American Literature" ; anoth- 
er upon "America and Her Allies" ; a third which 
contains a number of "Selections for Speaking in 
the Public Schools" upon the birthday anniversa- 
ries of Lee, Lincoln and Washington, and still an- 
other upon "American Ideals in American Liter- 
ature". These leaflets are so educational and sug- 
gestive that we should think many readers of this 
paper would be glad to receive them. 

"Write to the LTniversity When You Need Help" 
is the printed injunction which appears upon the 
letter-heads of the Bureau. The leaflets which have 
elicited this paragraph would seem to have almost 
anticipated many of the appeals which this injunc- 
tion may inspire. 

T. L. Burnett, '19, who has just returned from 
France after driving an ambulance on the Verdun 
front for nine months, was a visitor to the Univer- 
sity during April. He talked to the battalion in 
chapel one morning on some of his experiences. 
He expects to return to the front soon. Readers re- 
call ilr. Burnett's Icftcr in the .Tannarv Review.

Editor, The Review : 

Sir: — I am sending a letter to every member of 
the class of 1888, asking him to come to the thirty- 
year reunion and to write me that he will do so at 

Tuesday, June 4th, is Alumni Day. I will en- 
deavor to be there and to gather the faithful of '88 
for the occasion. We will magnetize the living and 
raise the dead. We will descend upon Alma Mater 
with an avalanche of loyalty and affection that have 
been accumulating during thirty years. 
Yours for the reunion,

Chas. W. Briles, a native of Davidson County 
and a member of the class of 1896, is a candidate 
for the office of State Superintendent of Public In- 
struction in Oklahoma. Mr. Briles located in Tex- 
as immediately after graduation and shortly there- 
after moved to Oklahoma where for the past twenty 
years he has taken a jDrominent part in the educa- 
tional life of the State. A recent issue of Harlow's 
Weekly in outlining Mr. Briles' program for educa- 
tional matters in Oklahoma, says of his career : 

The educational history 'of Oklahoma in the last 
decade has been a record of remarkable progress. 
Professor Briles has played an interesting part 
in this period. He was city superintendent of the 
Muskogee schools, a leading figure as director and 
president of the Indian Territory Teachers' Assoc- 
iation, president of the East Central State Normal 
School, and has held his present position as profes- 
sor of education in the A. and M. College for the 
past two years. Last year he was president of the 
State Teachers' Association. 


The baseball team has recently taken a short trip 
southward, which carried them to Camp Sevier, the 
University of S. C, Furraan University, Wof- 
ford, and the University of Georgia. Just before 
leaving on this trip the team defeated Guilford Col- 
lege 7 to 6 in Winston-Salem. Train schedules pre- 
vented the games planned with the University of 
Georgia and Furman. The University lost to South 
Carolina 3 to 1 and to Camp Sevier 2 to 0. Woffoi'd 
College also defeated them 2 to 0. Clemson College 
was beaten 2 to 1. 

The two games with Virginia, April 13 and 15, 
were both well played and highly interesting. The 
first was played in Greensboro, the home boys win-

here, winning 4 to 0. A large crowd of visitors

Algernon S. Barbee, of the class of 1860, died 
at his home in Chapel Hill on the morning of April 
6 at the age of 78 years. He is survived by his 
wifej his brother, Seaton Barbee, and his sister, Mrs. 
D. McCaulay. 

In Mr. Barbee's death the University loses one 
of its graduates ante-dating the Civil war, and the 
village one of its best known citizens. At various 
times he had held the office of mayor of the town, 
for many years he had been a magistrate, and as a 
notary public he had the distinction of having been 
in that service longer than any other North Caro- 
linian, his first commission having been issued by 
Governor Vance early in the sixties. 

Dr. Edwin Greenlaw lectured recently at several 
South Carolina colleges.

It is uot very certain that some of the more or 
less literary efforts that are being made to have 
Americans and Englishmen understand each other 
better are proving resnltfiil. Almost everybody is 
taking a whack at the problem, and Herbert Corey 
has something to say about it in an easy-going and 
blithe manner in Everi/hocly's. The substance of 
what he writes is that through the American soldier 
and the American otficer, the English soldier and the 
English officer are finding out we are really not 
half bad and don't quite live up to the caricatures 
that have done duty for the American type time out 
of mind in England. All this is very well, but then, 
of course, the inevitable fly in the ointment is the 
article by Sir Theodore A. Cook in Tlte XiiipleeiiiJi 
Century and After. For the Cook article, while 
supposedly written to tell his compatriots liow the 
two great English-speaking nations — Great Britian 
and the United States — "have come to the end of 
a long misunderstanding," is written in the same 
old style of stupid condescension that has infuria- 
ted Americans for years and led to that one great 
classic discussion of the subject by Lowell entitled 
"On a Certain Condescension in Foreigners." 

But this is no time to quote Cook, though it is 
too many Cooks of this stripe who have siioiled the 
•broth all too long, and it is much pleasanter there- 
fore to turn from liis banalities to a truly s])lendid 
thing, coming out of the clear sky, as it were, from 
Chapel Hill, X. C. For it is in a syllabus prepared 
by tlie department of English of tlie Fniversity <ni 

"jSTational Ideals in British and American Liter- 
ature" that a real step forward in promoting a real 
understanding between the English and American 
peoples is taken. Indeed, few more admirable 
things have been done by any department of Eng- 
lish in any other university in an effort to apply 
the lessons of the great war. It may be said this 
last but one leaflet of the University of North Car- 
olina is Kumber 14- in a series which goes far to 
give patriotism the material out of which real pa- 
triots can be made; solid substance at that, and not 
moonshine and milk and water. As the series go, No. 
14 is, however, the best, especially if it be taken into 
account with the fifteenth leaflet, which deals' with 
France in the war and suggests such a sympathetic 
study of the French people and their institutions 
as can only result in a deep admiration plus an 
al)0unding affection for them and theirs. 

* * ■» 

Sticking, however, to the more controverted 
theme, the issue of British and American ideals, 
one reads Leaflet Number 14 with increasing de- 
light. The great value of this fine effort at getting 
together materials that will lead to an understand- 
ing of our English cousins is shown in that the syl- 
labus deals with the literature of the people, in 
which the ideals of the various centuries are re- 
vealed. And this is done with a penetration and 
eloquence that are quite everwhelmiug. Compared 
with such a high endeavor, the cheap clap-trap of 
Sir Theodore Cook, full of the old superciliousness 
which assumes, as Montaigne pointed out centur- 
ies ago was the snobbisli wont of Old World de- 
fenders too often, that wherein strangers differ from 
you they are always in the wrong, is exposed in all 
its tinsel sordidness as the wrong way to get to a sup- 
posedly good end. 

Naturally the committee does not Intend that 
this syllalius shall represent the only way of studying 
history or the only way of getting at the literature 
of a gi'eat people, but it must be frankly said that 
as an effectual means of organizing "the soul of de- 
mocracy," and particularly of putting the average 
American in sympathetic touch with the histoiy 
and the point of view of France and England, these 
leaflets can hardly be improved upon. If they in- 
spire as much enthusiasm in those who are the sub- 
jects of the professional ministrations as is in evi- 
dence in the work of the projectors of the latest syl- 
labus, they will not have been written in vain. 
Moreover, they should be put in the bauds of all 
those pul)licists and others who, in pulpit or on 
jilatform, in English or American publications, are 



supposedly engaged in helping us to understand 
what the phrases "haiids across the sea" and "blood 
is thicker than water"really mean. — Philadelphia 
Puhlic Ledger. 

A book of very genuine interest, especially to 
members of this community, is "The Church and 
the Crowd" (Fleming H. Revell Company, New 
York, 1!)17) by Ilichard Wallace Hogue, D. D., of 
Baltimore. For years, Dr. Hogue was rector here 
of the Chapel of the Cross, and was a power in the 
community, equally among his own parishioners and 
the University students. The present work may, in 
a sense, be regarded as conclusions concerning the 
social mission of the church, reached by Dr. Hogiic 
as the result of his ministrations in Baltimore. The 
sub-title gives the clue to the book's meaning: ''An 
interpretation of the answer of the churcli to the 
challenge of the day." The table of contents further 
tend to elucidation of the book's purport: "The 
Challenge," "The Commonwealth and the Common 
Crowd," "The Call to Re-interpret," "The Call to 
Readjustment." "Ts the Church Afraid '^ and "The 
Call to the Ministry." 

In the time of Christ, the common people heard 
Him gladly. Today, says Dr. Hogue in the Preface, 
"it is generally conceded that the 'Common People' 
have scant respect for the message and no regard for 
the leadership of the Church." This little volume is 
described as "an etfort to aid the Churcli to meet 
the challenge of today as her Founder met the chal- 
lenge of His day : . . . The Chiirch must an- 
swer the Call of the Crowd." Perhaps the clearest 
statement of the author's purpose, in this interesting 
and stimulating volume, is found in the chapter, "Is 
the Church Afraid V : — ''The time has come for the 
Church at large to make the welfare of humanity in 
every sphere and class of life as much her concern 
as it was of the blaster who stopped preaching and 
fed the huniirv bodies of the multitude." 

A book of marked interest, especially in the light 
of great events now forward, is "The North Ameri- 
can Idea" (Fleming H. Revell Company. New York. 
1017), by James A^ Macdonald, D. D. In "A Fore- 
word" the author says: "The very title of this v<il- 
ume, 'The North American Idea,' was chosen for the 
Weil Lectures of 191G, in the University of North 
Carolina, and was first used for three lectures on that 
foundation, which I had the honor of delivering be- 
fore that University in December of last year. It 
was planned that those lectures should be published 
at the time of their deliverv. But war conditions 

made that impossible. Early in 1917, with the gen- 
erous consent of the authorities of both universities, 
I substituted 'The North American Idea' "for the 
title previously chosen for the Cole Lectures at Yan- 

In these lectures, three of which were delivered 
here, the author, an orator of undoubted eloquence, 
traces the growth and development of the spirit of 
liberty, just government, and freedom of individual 
action on the North American continent. Further- 
more, he shows the cognate, correlative contributions 
of Canada and the United States. The North Am- 
erican idea he defines as the right of a free people 
to govern themselves ; and the growth of this idea 
is broadly traced. In the concluding chapter, the 
author points out that North America's internation- 
alism is her greatest achievement. When this coun- 
try entered the Great War, she thereby declared tliat 
the responsibility of a democratic state, hitherto held 
to 1)0 restricted within its own peculiar bounds, can 
have no limits whatsoever. 

The Review is in receipt of Republic of Cuba vs. 
The State of North Carolina, being the proceedings 
in the Supreme (^ourt of the United States and other 
documents growing out of the suit for the recover}' 
rm certain fraudulent bonds. The 101-page pub- 
lication has been prepared and issued by James S. 
Planning, Attorney-General of North Carolina and 
contains among other things the argument prepared 
by T. W. Bickett, then Attorney-General, in behalf 
of the state. 

A recent monograph carrying out extended re- 
searches on the nature and position of lines on 
the cubic surface, by Professor C. Juel, of the 
University of Copenhagen, has been dedicated to 
Dr. Archibald Henderson, author of The Twenty- 
seven Lines upon the Cubic Surface. The mono- 
grai^h is entitled Einleitung in die Theorie der Ele- 
mentarfliichen dritter Ordnung ( Mathematische An- 
milen, LXXVI. Band, Heft i, B. G. Teubner, Leip- 
zig) and is in eight parts. 

Dr. James Sprunt of Wilming-ton, has recently in- 
creased his gift to the Presbyterian Churcb here 
from $30,000 to $50,000. This will enable this de- 
nomination to build here one of the best houses of 
worship in the state.

— 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 

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 inember of the class of 1916 left behind a will of half dozen lines with two be- 
quests. One of them was a bequest of $100 to the Alumni Loyalty Fund. 

—Another man from an older generation in college left a bequest of $25,000. 

— Each after his ability and with equal desire! 

— WAR liberates large and generous emotions often repressed in times of peace. 

— WHY should not every loyal alumnus on the firing line of life make a bequest to 
the Loyalty Fund ? He withdraws nothing from use ; he is enabled to give 
back to the institution and to society a part of the talents given to him ; it 
makes him a permanent partner in youth and progress. 

— You think you will never die. 

Perhaps not. But be on the safe side, and say what you want done with what you 
leave . Write your will now; don't wait tUl 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. ' '
