CY THOMPSON SENDS— 

To his friends and policyholders — ^wherever they may be — warmest greetings, with the 
hope that you have found, at home or abroad, a place of service in the successful prosecution of 
the Great War. 

For six months since he changed his "say," he has led tlie strenuous life of a civilian man- 
ager of a Regimental Canteen in Camp Sevier. He hopes now to find work that will lead to 
over-sea duty. But be assured that his worthy friend and General Agent, at Raleigh, stands 
ready at all times to give you the immediate and future benefits of the continued superior ser- 
vice of the old 'New England Mutual. 

This is true whether you may be interested in conserving protection now in force, in 
buying new insiirance, or in making an agency contract. It's a good time to tie to the old,

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Volume VI 



MAY, 1918 



Number 8 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



Caiolina debaters have again added to their 
splendid record by taking a double victory from 

Johns Hopkins and Virginia. 
DOUBLE VICTORY jj^ present victories, as may 
IN DEBATING , j- i 

be seen irom a news story on a 

later page, bring the total up to thirty-two out of 
forty-seven engagements, a two to one victory in the 
entire series. 

The Review quite naturally rejoices in this 
double victory and splendid record. It likes for (Car- 
olina to win. And it finds special pleasure in a 
victory in this year 1918. The year 1917-18 is 
going down in the history of colleges and Univer- 
sities as one in which it has been exceedingly hard 
to uuiintain standards or to make proper readjust- 
meuts to new conditions. The Review has empha- 
sized the fact that Carolina has succeeded in these 
important particulars to a much greater extent than 
the average American university. The result of the 
debates is further evidence of this fact. 

Our congratulations, consequently, go to the four 
men ( and all their competitors in the preliminaries) 
wild have furnished this evidence. They also go 
to Professors Williams, Raper, Bernard and Green- 
law, of the debating committee, who throughout the 
years, and particularly during the present year, have 
kept the debating interest of the student body keen. 

nnn 

Reference has frequently been made in these col- 
umns concerning the work of the ITorth Carolina 
Club, of its year-books, and of the 
special county studies which club 
members have been engaged in pre- 
paring. Earlier in the year special mention was 
made of the first of these studies — Sampson County : 
Economic and Social. 

The Review is in receipt of Durham County: 
Economic and Social, prepared by W. M. LTpchurch 
and M. B. Fowler. This publication, 93 pages in 
length, is the second of the county series, and during 
the next few weeks is to be followed by similiar 
publications for Wake, Rutherford, Orange, and 
other counties. 

As one reviews these publications, it is impossible 



COUNTY 
BULLETINS 



to escape the conviction that in their preparation 
the students of the University are coming into in- 
timate acquaintance with North Carolina. There 
is the further impression that the men who have 
made them will be better citizens for having made 
them, and more effective leaders in the development 
of North Carolina life. And still further, the home 
folk in the counties covered by these studies have 
for the first time the opportunity to see themselves 
in their true light. Hereafter there will be no rea- 
son for them to fail to know their status in a large 
number of particulars. 

Now that the publications are beginning to come 
from the press in comparative frequency, the real 
bigness of the idea back of them becomes doubly 
apparent. The study is of a new sort, but it is vital 
to North Carolina. Absolutely so. And the Club, 
in its fortnightly meetings and in these publications, 
is carrying out an ambitious, effective program 
which sjjells untold good for the State. 

An unusually pleasing feature in connection with 
the appearance of Durham County: Economic and 
Social, is that it is backed by the interest and sup- 
jiort of University alumni. Mr. John Sprunt Hill, 
whose varied gifts to the University during the year 
have been of a most distinctive character, met the 
expense of bringing out the bulletin. 

nnn 

The role of the nagger is not a pleasant one. Nor 

a profitable one, for that matter. However, The 

Review is not acting in that role 

„ when it seems to repeat and lay em- 

REMEMBER , . /in */ j • ^L■^■l 4^ 

phasis upon (1) the desirability oi 

alumni visiting the American University Union 
while in Paris, and (2) the absolute necessity of 
co-operation in securing a maximum freshman class 
for 1918-19. 

The University has joined the American Univer- 
sity Union and paid its fees in the clear knowledge 
that the union has something vital to offer the alum- 
nus in the event he is in Paris, and from all ac- 
counts which have come to us the offering is distinc- 
tive. It savors of the best of the American college 
union, or club home, or student building as we

know it on American campuses today. Tt will more 
nearly approximate home so far as American col- 
lege students are concerned than anything else to 
he found on the other side of the Atlantic. And 
incidentally there will he Carolina publications and 
a remembrance from the stay-at-home alumni. 

The necessity of a large Freshman class is too ob- 
vious to require special elaboration. Men over 
twenty-one are destined for service. Every boy 
who is prepared for college should spend the years 
prior to reaching his majority in securing further 
training. It remains for the alumni to see that this 
is done and that Carolina's enrollment is main- 
tained at the highest point possible. 

nnn 

The fact that nearly eleven hundred Carolina 
men have entered the service may seemingly make 
the citation of the following pledge of 
loyalty and service issued by the Uni- 



WE RECOM- 
MEND THIS 



versity of Pittsburgh inappropriate so 
far as Carolina ahimni are concerned. In reproduc- 
ing the pledge The Review does not have in mind 
these 1100 men in khaki, but rather tlie 6000 ahmnii 
wearers of mufti who must of necessity make their 
contribution to the winning of the war in some non- 
combatant activity. The suggestions are at least 
worthy of special thought. 

I i^ledge myself to keep informed on the causes 
and progress of the war so that I may l>e a reliable 
source of infomiation and influence for my country'. 

I pledge myself to be alert to the danger of 
disloyalty of act or speech in native or alien, and to 
report such to the proper authorities of my country. 

I pledge myself to help establish public opinion 
in favor of complete co-operation in every endeavor 
to win the war for my country. 

I pledge myself to be careful of speech ninl imt 
to repeat any rumors that tend to discourage the 
efforts in the prosecution of the war of my country. 

I pledge myself cheerfully to change uiv habits 



of living, so far as necessarv, in order to 



iply 



with any request of my country. 

I pledge myself to economize in the expend it iirc 
of money in order that I may financially aid my 
country. 

I pledge myself to support the war loans of my 
country. 

I pledge myself to be a friend and comforter tn 
the families of those who, at home and abroad, are 
carrying the burdens of my country. 

T pledge myself to a larger endeavor, so that pro- 
iluction may not fall short as a result of the absence 
of those who have gone in the service of my country. 

I pledge myself to meet the successes and fail-

ures of war with patience, calmness and confidence 
for the sake of my country. 

nda 

A most significant fact about the jjresent war rec- 
ord is that the University is rnning true to form. 
An earlier chapter of heroic service 
to a cause was wi-itten in the deeds 
of the sixties, the outstanding char- 
actei'tistics of which are given on another page by 
R. D. W. Connor — Carolina in the Civil War. Both 
records should be read by every alunnius in order 
that a proper understanding and appreciation of the 
Carolina student-in-arms, whether of the sixties or 
todav, may be gained. 

nnn 

The Review notes with deep distress the passing 

of Dr. Stephen B. Weeks, of the class of 1886, his- 

toi-ian of the United Statt^s Bureau 

o^»xll?-^"?o? "*' Education. A man of hio-h talents 
H. WE11.KS, 86 , .... , ^ , . 

and untiring nulustry, he was able, 

ill s]iite of a long and heroic struggle against ill- 
health, to leave a great monument to his scholarship 
and genius for historical research . 

Undertaking, while still a student at the Univer- 
sity, to prepare a catalogue c)f the members of the 
Philanthropic Society, he Ix'came so attached to 
historical study that he went to Johns Hopkins and 
after studying under Adams was the first Xorth Car- 
olinian to win the doctorate there. Serving as a 
teacher, as specialist in the Bureau of Education, in 
the Indian service, and again in Washington, he ren- 
dered in all service of unusual distinction. Yet it 
is not for these that he will be chiefly remembered. 
His title to fame rests ujjon the long list of valuable 
historical monographs relating* to the South and 
]iarticu]arily to Xorth Carolina, upon his work in 
foiiniling the Southern History Association and stim- 
idating its activities, u]ion his monuirioiital index 
to the Colonial and State Records, in itself almost 
the work of a lifetime, and upon his collection and 
])rescrvation of the greatest collection of North Car- 
oliniana extant, in doing which he rendered a tre- 
mendous service to the State. 

He was a pioneer in K^orfh Carolina in the field 
of scientific historical investigation and did much 
to make it attractive to others. Tt was but a thank- 
less task when he began it and in such labors as those 
to which he gave himself there was but small return 
in the goods of this world. But the measure of 
])ride and satisfaction resulting from bis scholarly 
activity should have been great. The standards he 
set were hiffh and he never lowered them. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 201 



THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING YOU CAN DO 



I. IF YOU ARE IN THE SERVICE 

1. Write Tmc Review a letter telling such things as the censor will let through. Carolina 
wants to know about you. 

2. If you have a few days in Paris, look up the American University Union. You will find 
a package from Alma Mater awaiting you. 

3. Before you go over the top, take the maximum war risk insurance and put Carolina into 
your will. 

II. IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF 18.58, 1868, 1888, 1893, 189 8, 190.3, 1908, 1913, 1917 

1. Blue pencil the date June 4. That is your day — Alumni Day. 

2. Write "the boys" that you will be here and that you expect to see them. 

3. If by chance you are to be class orator, start right now to put the '"pep" in the chef 
d'ouvre. You want to go over the top in fine form. 

III. IF YOU ARE A LIVE-WIRE ALUMNUS 



1. See that the teachers in your community know about the Summer School. 

2. Start some high school graduate to college — preferably the "Hill." Back him up with a 
Liberty loan, if need be. 

3. Join the North Carolina Club, and keep your county posted as to the University's work 
— especially those phases of its work which relate particularly to the home-county. 

4. Co-operate with the TUireau of Extension in forming an Extension Center in your town 
for 1918-19. 

IV. IF THE INCOME TAX GATHERER DID NOT SUCCEED IN RELIEVING YOU OF ALL YOUR 
EXTRA CASH 



1. Put $5,000 or $10,000 into the strengthening of some of Carolina's publications. 

2. Why not malce some section of the library the most distinctive in the South? 

3. Have you ever thought what it would mean to the Schools, Extension Centers, and Wo- 
men's Clubs of the State if the University had a $5,000 loan collection of educational lantern 
slides and films ? 

4. If you are looking for something bigger, now is the time of times for a woman's build- 
ing, or, 

5. A North Carolina building, in which ultimately, will be gathered the most complete col- 
lection of historical, social, and economic material relating to the State to be found in the world. 

V. IF YOU HAVE BIG IDEAS FOR CAROLINA WHICH YOU WISH REALIZED 

1. Let President Graham know them. 

2. Literest your friends in carrying them out, or 

3. Back them up with your own cash. Out with them, and let the University reap the 
benefit.

Nineteen-Seventeen Heard From 

In this splendid record the class of 1917 has had 
a most conspicuous part. Called from its ordinary 
campus duties, sixty-five of its members volunteered 
in May for officers training camps or other forms 
of service with the result that on commencement 
day its ranks were badly depleted. On May 1, 1918, 
one year from the date of the call to camp, out of 
a total of 155 persons receiving degrees in 1917, 
forty were commissioned officers, 32 non-commis- 
sioned officers and privates, 30 teachers, 11 chemists 



or engaged in business essential to the war, 17 stu- 
dents (principally in medicine,) one LT. S. counsul, 
one minister, two lawyers, and twenty of whom the 
LTniversity had no record, but the majority of whom 
were supposed to be in service. One, Miss Gladys 
Avery, was married to Lieutenant C. W. Tillett, Jr.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
CAROLINA IN THE CIVIL WAR 



The University Sent 1 062 or Forty Per Cent of Her Sons Into the Armies 

of the Confederacy 



During the summer of 1917 Mr. R. D. W. t'oimor, 
secretary of the i^orth Carolina Historical Commis- 
sion and president of the General Ahimni Associa- 
tion of the University delivered an address before the 
University Sunmier School, entitled "The University 
of J^orth Carolina in the Civil War." This address 
which portrayed clearly the part played by Univer- 
sity men in the Civil War and contained therefore 
much valuable information for alumni was printed 
in full in the University News Letter of August 15th. 
Excerpts from the address are reprodueeil herewith : 

In the civil service of the State government of 
Xorth Carolina throughout the war University men 
predominated, and upon them in the greatest crisis 
of our history the destiny of the state hung. They 
controlled and directed the deliberations of the con- 
vention of 1861. Forty-four University men sat in 
that body and among them, with a half dozen excep- 
tions, were to be found the leaders of that remarkable 
asseml)lage. This convention had been called to de- 
cide upon the course tlie State should pursue in the 
Civil War which had already begun. While its mem- 
bers were unanimous in agreeing that Korth C'arolina 
must take her place along with the other Southern 
States, they were divided in opinion as to the grounds 
upon which they should rest their action. One group, 
led by Burton Craige, of the class of 1829, advocated 
the constitutional right of secession. In this group 
were found such men as Bryan Grimes, George How- 
ard, William Johnston, James W. Osborne, George 
V. Strong and Bedford Browne, soldiers, statesmen 
and jurists who would reflect honor on any cause to 
which they gave their allegiance. Opposing the doc- 
trine of this grouj) was a strong party, of which Wil- 
liam A. Graham, of the class of 1824, was the recog- 
nized leader, who, denying the doctrine of the con- 
stitutional right of secession, wished to base the ac- 
tion of the convention on the higher "right of revolu- 
tion." Supporting this position were Kemp P. Bat- 
tle, Robert P. Dick, Rufus L. Patterson, William M. 
Shipp and Josiah Turner, Jr., all able and loyal sons 
of the University. The mere mention of these names 
is enough to show the predominating influence of 
University men in the convention. A University man. 
Burton Craige, was the author of the Ordinance of 
Secession which was adopted May 20, 1861. Dr. 
Battle, by the way, is the only living member of the 
Secession Convention. 

Xot only was the influence of University men all- 
powerful in the convention; they also guided the de- 
liberations of the several legislatures that were elected 



during the war. How completely their influence was 
felt may be inferred from the simple fact that Henry 
T. Clark, of the class of 1826, and Giles Mebane, 
of the class of 1831, presided over the nine sessions 
of the State Senate held from 1861 to 1864, while 
from 1862 to 1864 the Speakers of the House of Com- 
mons were Marmaduke S. Robins, of the class of 
1856; Robert B. Gilliam, of the class of 1823; 
Thomas Settle, of the class of 1850 ; Samuel F. Phil- 
lips, of the class of 1851, and Robert S. Donnell, of 
the class of 1839. A large percentage of the leading 
nien in Ijoth branches of the General Assembly were 
University men. 

University War Governors 

The executive aflairs of the State government dur- 
ing this same period were entirely in the hands of 
University men. From 1860 to 1865 three Univer- 
sity men were successively Governors of North Caro- 
lina and the pilots who guided the State through the 
storms of those years. To them, more than to any 
other men, North Carolina owes the proud record 
which she made in the Civil War. It was Governor 
John W. Ellis, of the class of 1841, who in a ringing 
epigram, "You can get no troops from North Caro- 
lina," crystallized the sentiment of the people of the 
State, and by his zeal in sending troops to the front, 
enabled North Carolina to inscribe upon her banner 
the proud legend, "First at Bethel." It was Governor 
Henry T. Clark, of the class of 1826, whose energy 
in raising, organizing and equipping troops, enalrled 
thirty-six regiments of North Carolina volunteei's, 
within four months after the secession of the State, 
to take the field in defense of the Confederate capital, 
where they made such a record as justifies the histor- 
ian, in writing of them that in the Seven Days' Bat- 
tle around Richmond "every fifth regimental color 
swept by the storms of those battles floated over North 
Carolina bayonets. Every fifth man who dropped a 
weapon from hand palsied by death left a desolate 
home in North Carolina. Every fifth bullet that 
helped to raise the Union casualities to 15,849 was 
from a North Carolina musket." And it was Gov- 
ernor Zebulon Baird Vance, a matriculate of 1851, 
who, thrilling North Carolina soldiers with his own 
indomitable spirit, gave them the inspiration that 
sent them "Farthest to the front at Gettysburg" and 
kept them to their colors "Last at Appomattox." 

To these three University men more than to any 
others, it is due that North Carolina sent into the 
Confederate armies ten thousand more soldiers than 
she had voters ; that she furnished about one-fifth of

all the troops of the Confederacy ; and that her troops 
were better clothed, better armed, and Ijetter equipped 
than those of any other Confederate State. 

In Confederate War Councils 

Of scarcely less importance were the contributions 
of University men to the civil service of the Confed- 
erate States Government. University men were to 
be found representing the Confederacy in foi'eign 
countries, serving her in the halls of legislation, and 
advising her President in the council of his cabinet. 
The contidential agent of the Confederate States in 
Canada was Jacob Thompson, of the class of 1831. 
The University counted thirteen of her sons in the 
Confederate Congress. Ten of these were in the 
House of Representatives : Burton Craige, Thomas 
D. McDowell, John M. Morehead, T."C. Fuller, 
Thomas Ruffin, Jr., T. S. Ashe, R. R. Bridgers, Jo- 
siah Turner, Jr., all of North Carolina ; David N. 
Lewis, of Georgia, and Walter R. Stephens, of Vir- 
ginia. Three — W. W. Avery, George Davis, and 
William A. Graham — were in the Confederate Sen- 
ate. Jefferson Davis called two sons of the University 
— Thomas Bragg, a matriculate of the class of 1822, 
and George Davis, of the class of 183S, into his cabi- 
net as Attorney General. In these high places, and 
in numerous subordinate positions in the civil ser- 
vice of the Confederacy, of North Carolina and of 
other States, University men contributed their full 
share to the efforts of the South to establish a South- 
ern Confederacy. 

On Battle Lines 

But brilliant as were the services of University 
men in the civil affairs of the Confederacy, they pale 
into obscurity when compared with their military ser- 
vices. In her military record the University of North 
Carolina may fearlessly challenge comparison with 
any other institution of learning in the United States, 
North or South. Twenty-five per cent of the students 
of Yale University saw military service during the 
Civil War, and in this respect Yale leads all the New 
England colleges. The University of Virginia, the 
only rival of the University of North Carolina in the 
Confederacy, sent twenty-five per cent of her sons into 
the Confederate military service. The number of 
students who matriculated at the University of North 
Carolina from 1830 to 1867 and who were living in 
1861, was 2j592. Of this nvimber it is known that 
1,062 or 40 per cent entered the armies of the Con- 
federacy. Of the 1,331 younger alumni who matric- 
ulated at the University from 18.51 to 1860, inclusive, 
740 or 5.5.6 per cent followed the Stars and Bars into 
battle. University men were to be found in every 
grade of military service from the private soldier to 
the lieutenant-general. To the armies of the Confed- 
eracy, the University contributed one lieutenant-gen- 
eral, one major-general, thirteen brigadier-generals, 



fifty colonels, twenty-eight lieutenant-colonels, forty 
majors, forty-si.x adjutants, seventy-one surgeons, two 
hundred and fifty-four captains, one hundred and 
fifty-five lieutenants, thirty-eight non-commissioned 
officers, and three hundred and sixty-five privates. To 
the Union armies the University contributed one maj- 
or-general, and one paymaster-general. 

These figures, as eloquent as they are, tell but half 
the tale. With what spirit did those sons of the Uni- 
versity discharge their duties? Their spirit is well 
illustrated by the conduct of the students who were 
at the University at the oubtreak of the war. At the 
close of the year 1860^ there were at the University 
430 students. Besides North Carolina, they repre- 
sented sixteen other states. Says Dr. Battle: As 
each State passed an ordinance of secession, its citi- 
zens at the University hvirried home fired with zeal 
to take up arms, never doubting that their cause was 
just. President Swain wrote that the freshman class 
of eighty members pressed into service with such im- 
petuosity that but a single individiial remained to 
graduate, and he, we are told, offered his services and 
was declined on account of ill health. The boys of 
the University, declares Dr. Weeks, rushed away to 
the struggle like men who had been bidden to a mar- 
riage feast. 

Innumerable incidents might be cited to illustrate 
the spirit of these University boys. Lieutenant I. M. 
Royster, of the class of I860, gallantly leading his 
men in battle, fell at the head of his company, with 
the song of Dixie on his lips. J. Johnston Pettigrew, 
first honor man of 1847, commanded the North Caro- 
lina troops who, sweeping up the heights of Ceme- 
tery Ridge, carried the Confederate flag, "Farthest 
to the front at Gettysburg." At Gettysburg, too, Col- 
onel Isaac E. Avery, a class-mate of Pettigrew's, led 
Hoke's brigade across an open field, drove back the 
enemy, captured 100 prisoners and four enemy stand- 
ards, but gave his own young life for his country. 
Struck down while cheering on his men, he lived 
just long enough to write on the back of an old en- 
velope, crimson with his blood, this message: "Major 
Tate, tell my father I died with my face to the foe." 
Did ever Roman die more gallantly ? To die for his 
coimtry, with his face to the foe — is not that the spirit 
of the true University boy ? Yes — and more. 

James Bryce, British Ambassador to the United 
States, gazing on that blood-stained paper where it is 
carefully preserved in the Hall of History at Ral- 
eigh, read its heroically simple line — "Tell my father 
that I died with my face to the foe," and said with 
deep emotion: "It is the message of our race to the 
world !" May we not hope and believe that the spirit 
of this gallant young son of the University is today 
in sympatlietic communion with the like spirits of the 
soldiers of our race, whether enrolled under the Stars 
and Stripes, or under the Cross of St. George, as they

rope upholding the cause of Democracy and civiliza- 
tion ? 

They Died at the Front 

Something of the kind of service rendered by the 
University boys from 1861 to 1865 may be realized 
when we recall the simple fact that of the 1,062 who 
entered the Confederate service, 312, or nearly a 
third, lost their lives; of the forty North Carolina 
regiments which sustained the heaviest losses during 
the war, eighteen were commanded by University 
men. C. M. Avery, of the class of 1839, led the 33d 
North Carolina into battle at Chancellorsville with a 
loss of 41.4 per cent. At Seven Pines, the 4th North 
Carolina, then commanded by George Bnrgwyn An- 
derson, a matriculate of 1848, lost 54 per cent of the 
men carried into battle. During the Seven Days' 
battles, Kobert H. Cowan, of the class of 1844, led 
the 18th North Carolina, which sustained a loss of 
56.. ■) per cent. At Bentonville, the last battle of the 
w^ar in North Carolina, Col. John D. Taylor, of the 
class of 1853, led the 1st North Carolina battalion 
in the contest with a loss of 57 per cent. 

But it was left for the immortal 26th, organized 
and trained by and inspired with the spirits of its 
first two colonels, Zebulon Baird Vance and Harry 
K. Burg-^vyn, both University boys, to set the high 
record for the war. Forming part of Pettigrew's 
brigade in the so-called Pickett's charge, on the third 
day at . Gettysburg, the 26th regiment carried 820 
men into battle, and lost 70S, or 86.3 per cent. This 
was the highest loss sustained by any regiment, Con- 
federate or Federal, during the Civil War. At Bal- 
aklava the Light Brigade, immortalized by a great 
poet, lost only 36.7 per cent. Well may the historian 
exclaim, "0 that the 26th North Carolina had a Ten- 
uvson to sing of its charge where no one had blund- 
ered ?" 

Perhaps, however, the zeal and enthusiasm mani- 
fested bj- the University boys at the beginning of the 
struggle was but a momentary passion doomed to 
vanish before the stern realities of war like smoke be- 
fore the wind. The record tells a different tale. When 
Wyatt fell at Bethel, University men were by his 
side. It was a University' man, James Johnston 
Pettigrew, who led the great charge on the third day 
at Gettysburg. And it was a University man, Bryan 
Grimes, who planned the last battle and led the last 
charge of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appo- 
mattox. From Bethel to Appomattox there was not 
a battle which did not claim its toll of University 
men; from Pennsylvania to Texas, there was no 
battlefield that was not enriched with their blood. 
At First Manassas four University boys gave their 
yciung lives in defense of their country; at Vieks- 
bnrg, four; at Shiloh, five; at Chancellorsville, five; 
at Spottsylvania, five; in the Wilderness, six: at 



Chickamauga, seven; at Fredericksburg, eight; at 
Antietam, nine; at Atlanta, nine; at ^lalvcrn Hill, 
fourteen ; at Gettysburg, twenty-one. 

Three hundred and twelve University men are 
known to have fallen in battle. In this list are to be 
found soldiers of every rank (except major-general) 
from private to lieutenant-general. Lieutenant-gen- 
eral Leonidas Polk, a matriculate of 1820, fell at 
Kennesaw Mountain ; Brigadier-General George Bur- 
gwyn Anderson, a matriculate of 1848, and Briga- 
dier-General L. O'B. Branch, a matriculate of 1838, 
both fell at Antietam; Brigadier-General I. W. Gar- 
rett, a graduate of 1840, was killed at Vicksburg, and 
Brigadier-General James Johnston Pettigrew, a grad- 
uate of 1847, at Falling Waters. From First Man- 
assas to Appomattox, says Dr. Weeks, the University 
saw the life-blood of her alumni poured out in lavish 
profusion. From Gettysburg to Missouri and Texas, 
on every important battlefield of the war, by death 
from woimds, by disease and as prisoners of war, did 
the sons of the University manifest their devotion to 
the cause. 



R. B. HOUSE, '16, BACK FROM FRANCE 

Lieut. Robert B. House, '16, lectured to the Uni- 
versity battalion on April 30 on his experiences in 
the fighting in France. He went over early last 
fall and had been continually in the fighting up to 
Ai)ril, practically all of the time with his machine 
gun company in the front line trenches. In April, 
with 18 other young oflicers from various Ameri- 
can regiments, he was ordered back to this country 
to act as instructor in a military camp. Lieutenant 
House is to serve at Camp Gordon. 



C. L. VOGLER WINS CARR SCHOLARSHIP 

C. L. Volger, of Winston-Salem, has been awarded 
the .lulian S. Carr scholarship for 1918-19. This 
scholarship carries $250 and is awarded to that mem- 
ber of the rising senior class who has largely sup- 
])orted himself through the first three years of col- 
lege and at the same time has maintained a high 
standing in his class work and as an all round col- 
lege man. This fellowship, which was awarded for 
the first time- in 1917, is at present held by A. M. 
Coates, of Smithfield, president of the North Caro- 
lina Club, and J. B. Linker, of Salisbury, one of 
the successful contestants in the competitive exam- 
ination for the Oglethorpe training camp. 



VIRGINIA WINS FINAL GAME 

By winning the final game at Charldttesville on 
April 27, Virginia won two out of three games in 
the 1918 series. The score in the Hna! game was 
2—1.

Alumni Relate Experiences in Military Service 



By DUDLEY ROBBINS, 18 
Ist Lt. A. S. S. C. R. M. A. U. S. R. 

(In a letter to Prof. P. H. Daggett) 
U. S. A. P. 0. 724, A. E. F., March 24, 1918. 

When I left K^orth Carolina I was placed iu com- 
mand of a squadron for overseas duties and you can 
imagine the job I had. However, we pulled out and 
landed in England in fine shape. I stayed with the 
squadron but was let loose for detached service as 
I wanted to do some battle flying before I settled 
down as C. O. of a squadron. After traveling around 
France for about a month I finally landed here and 
it sure is some camp. The largest iu the world with 
about a hundred miles of flying fields. All kinds 
of flying here and it is a great place. I have had 
more fun meeting old friends that I was in school 
with in California and flew with in San Diego. 
Everyone one ever knew gets here. Some we never 
see again, but that is only one side of it. 

Coming over on the boat I ran into quite a bunch 
of old University boys and certainly was glad to see 
them — '"Prec" Andrews of my class 'IS, Gordon 
Crowell 'IS, John Durham '19, Frank Love '17, and 
when I arrived here about the first cadet I saw was 
Meb Long. His commission hasn't arrived but I 
don't guess it will be long before he has his bars. 
These boys all ought to be majors. They are the 
ones that did all the work over here and they have 
received the rotten end all the way through. 

A fellow goes through different classes here. About 
the most fun we have on the ground is with the 
"Roullers," monoijlanes w-ith cropped wings. They 
can't fly ofl:' the ground, only hop along about forty 
or fifty miles. Usually turn over as they are hard 
to taxi and you can't get hurt very badly. It's great 
sport. If you are lucky enough to pass through the 
acrobatic stage all you have to do is to wait for your 
call to the front and then the great life begins. IMost 
of the flying they give here, I have had ; loojis and 
slips are not considered important enough to work 
on. One of the prettiest things you see is the "re- 
virsement." I can't spell French words yet. Any- 
way, it corresponds to a wing over wing just like a 
leaf falling endwise. These machines here stand 
the strain and you can do anything with them hand- 
ling them like glass as they respond very quickly. 

Here's wishing the old University and you the 
best of luck, professor, and hope I will be able to 
roam over the campus again. We have a big base- 
ball same on this afternoon. 



I aui sure the University of Xorth Carolina men, 
ami I know I. would certainly appreciate some Tar 
Heels or other University news sent to this P. O. 
724 as it will find ns.

(In a letter to Dr. Hamilton) 

Quantico, Va., April 21. 

Sunday is a day of rest except for washing clothes, 
blaneoing leggins, and a study period of two hours 
and a half. The period is slipping upon me now 
but I want to say good evening and good night to 
you and yours before I turn to. 

I am now getting the sort of training I've long 
desired — lx)mbing, trench digging, bayonet exercises, 
etc. I would be worth having in France when I finish 
this training. 

Five per cent of the enlisted personnel of the Ma- 
rine Corps are going to be put through this training. 
Almost two per cent compose the first camp. We 
came from the ends of the earth — chosen by local ex- 
amining boards who considered our records made 
under their eyes, our previous training, and testi- 
monials as to character and capacity such as you were 
good enough to send me. 

Ship detachments, island posts, navy yards guards 
and intensive training camps all sent their one, two, 
or dozen or more selects to this camp for further train- 
ing. I don't sujipose a more various and representa- 
tively American body ever assembled — made cosmo- 
politan by service in China, Latin America, the Is- 
lands touching the Carribean Sea, and the military 
camps of France. There are men who have served in 
every marine campaign since '9S — Cuba. Haiti (2), 
San Domingo, Panama, Vera Cruz, etc., (some ten or 
more") from every state, from every military branch 
— aviation, artillery, rifle range, engineering, infan- 
try, mine laying, search light, signal, quartermaster, 
machine gun — from colleges in every section, every 
profession, every trade, evei-y class, verily a crose 
section of the vigor and variety of American life — 
each man an enlisted man with a considerable back- 
ground of training as an apperceptive basis for in- 
tensive training under iTarine Majors and Black 
Watch captains. 

The regiment of Marines at Philadelphia is being 
held in reserve for action with the fleet but the wait- 
ing is indefinite. I hope that I am assigned next 
time to infantrv.

How much can we come back this time '. 

Don't let this opportunity slip by. 



TO MEMBERS OF '88 

There's going to be someting to the reunion of the

Brooklyn, jST. Y., is chairaian. sends the following 
letter to all meudiers of the class: 

After a silence of thirty years, you are going to l>e 
disturbed. The welkin is going to ring, the elements 
melt with fervent heat. The mystic words, '88, Chai> 
el Hill, reunion are even now sounding within your 
soul and preparing you for a transformation. You 
are going to take a bath in the fountain of youth. For 
a day time is going to turn backward and you. are 
going to be the joyful, attractive, handsome youth 
you were three decades ago when the world was beck- 
oning to you to come and conquer it. 

Yes, old man, if you are asleep, wake up. If you 
are a snail or a worm, be a bird and fly to the nest 
where y(ni were hatched. If you are a rolling stone, 
roll towards the starting place. If a stone that has 
been stationary and gathers moss, "Look unto the 
rock whence ye are hewn and to the hole of the pit 
whence ye are digged." (Tsai. .il :1). 

To come down to simple facts, though difficult to 
restrain enthusiiism, the class of '88 is due to have 
a i-eunion after a separation that has lasted thirty 
years. You surely do not want it to last forever. 
Xow it does not matter what kind of a man you have 
grown to be, good, bad or indifferent, rich, famous 
or insignificant, come back and let's be the boys we 
once were together for a sinsle dav.

DEAN MATHEWS DELIVERS McNAIR LECTURES 

''Patriotism and Religion" was the general theme 
ruiniing through the ilcXair series of four lectures 
delivered the 5th, 6th, and Tth of this month by 
Dean Shailer Mathews of the Divinity School of 
the University of Chicago. Dr. Mathews is recog- 
nized as a man of great national prominence and is 
renowned for scholarship, eloquence, and cultured 
concern in the larger problems of the time. A man 
of great versatility, he has been in time prcjfessor of 
history, of rhetoric, of political economy, of Xew 
Testament history and interpretation, of systematic 
theology, and of historical and comparative theology. 
For a period of eight years (1903-11) he was editor 
of the popular magazine, "'The World Today;" and 
since 1913 he has been editor of the ''Biblical World." 

Dr. Mathews' first lecture, in which he laid the 
foundation for the three following lectures, had as 
its subject "The Kinship of Patriotism and Reli- 
gion." His second lecture treated of "Tlie floral Val- 
ues of a Xation," in which he defined National Pa- 
triotism as a product of the 19th century. ''Christian- 
ity and the War" was the tojiic of Dr. Mathews' third 
lecture. Religion, he showed, has always been a 
supporter of war. In his fourth and last lecture 
on "Religion as a Dynamic for Patriotism," Dr. 
Mathews stated that a league of nations to enforc(^ 
peace must rest not only on force but on an inter- 
national morality, which means that we must have 
an international God. 

In his first lecture Dr. Mathews gave a vivid 
picture of a young man's love for his native land, 
defining patriotism as loyalty to country and nation- 
al institutions. A counterpart of religion is the sac- 



rifice and devotion of the men and women of the 
nations in arms. The kinship of patriotism and 
religion is apparent in that both are in groups rather 
than individual. Patriotism is further characterized 
as that mental attitude of a social group which gives 
to the individuals in the group a feeling of personal 
identity with the nation, while religion is a kind 
of "super-patriotism." 

In his second lecture on the "Moral Values of a 
Xation" Dr. Mathews defined National Patriotism 
as a proiluct of the nineteenth century. Patriotism 
was lacking in the middle ages. There was no Italy, 
no France, no Germany, no Kingdom. There was a 
spirit of loyalty among the early tribes and clans, 
however. When nations emerged religions life 
evolved into a Xational Patriotism while the loyalty 
of the middle classes raised no question of moral 
'standards, yet there was developing all the while 
those moral elements wliich were to serve as the 
foundation of Jfational progress. The ideas of 
,rights, as such, grew among the masses. The com- 
pact forme<l on the ila.^'flower was the germ of our 
national jn-inciples. The war today, he said, is a 
struggle l)etween two conflicting ideals: democratic 
patriotism supports fair play in international affairs ; 
German Kultur the "scrap of jiaper" doctrine and 
the dominance of the crown-head over the people. 

"Religion has always been a supporter of war, 
and witli certain exceptions has never been filled 
snfticiently with moral elements to make war a mat- 
ter of abhorrence," Dean Mathews stated in his 
third lecture on "Religion and War." When one. 
looks at the causes of war he finds religion often- 
times among the most potent. The speaker defined 
two jihilo^ophies and two conceptions of Christian- 
ity. "On the one hand is the philosophy which de- 
mands jiolitical control and military power and the 
religion that worships a German God of liattles. 
On the other hand is the philosophy that seeks com- 
mercial development through the maintenance of 
]ieace and an attempt, though imperfect, to a]i]ily 
Christian ideals to national religion." Despite the 
arguments of pacifists, war waged in defense of the 
latter philosophy is just, according to Dean Mathews. 

The fourth and last lecture of the series dealt 
with services which religion can render to jiatriot- 
ism. The speaker stated that a league of nations 
to enforce peace should rest not only ujion force, but 
on international morality, which means that we must 
iiave an international God. International iiiDi'ality 
must look to a patriotism which is God of no nation 
Init father of mankind. We must believe in a God 
as noble as the ideals for whieli we fiijlit. We have

got to grow a group morality, and to do this nations 
must act as a group, not as individuals. Dr. 
Mathews pointed out the duty of religion to Pa- 
triotism. Religion is needed to strengthen the hearts 
of nations in times of trial, to give courage in times 
of despondency, hope in times of defeat, and con- 
fidence in times of distrust.

HEARTY APPROVAL FROM WILLIS 

Editor, Review: 

Siii : — You are all continually doing interesting 
things. With every issue of The Review you in- 
troduce something new and aggressive and forward 
looking. 

The suggestion in the February number about a 
Medical Director interests me greatly. It is a fact 
that the public, illiterate and educated, is capably 
ignorant on things hygienic and on questions relating 
to public health. A medical director in the Uni- 
versity could give the student a working knowledge 
of a few fundamental non-technical principles of 
public health and send him out with a grounding 
in these matters that would enable him to render 
a tremendous service to the State. I congratulate 
you on the move. 

Yours for U. !N^. C, 

Baltimore, ild. ^- S- Willis, '14.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 



The Commumtv Pageaxt: Ax AciExcv For The 
Promotion Of Democracy. University of 
North Carolina Extension Leaflets: War infor- 
mation Series, No. Ifi. 

A new light is thrown iijion the ('(inumuiity Pag- 
eant in No. 16 of the War Information leaflets. This 
leaflet is in two parts: Part! — The New Signifi- 
cance of the Community Pageant, by Professor 
Greenlaw, head of the English Department of the 
University; Part II — Suggestions for Coniiuunity 
Pageants, by A. Vermont, fDrmerly Instrurtor in 
French at the University, now in tlie faculty of the 
Asheville High School, and for several years a jm'o- 
ducer of jiagcants in the University's Summer 
School. 

Believing that literature springs out of folk-con- 
sciousness, Professor Greenlaw urges that we revit- 
alize our literature by returning to the strength-giv- 
ing earth of common interests and ideals. He thinks 
we should also aim to quicken this folk-consciousness, 
itself; and he sees in the pageant an instrument 
shaped to such an end. The beginning ought to be 
made in the community because the life of the nation 
is in the community, as the life of the organism is 
ill the cell. A strong folk-consciousness in the com- 
munity means a strong national conseiousne,ss 
throughout the country. Just as a community can 
visualize its history and ideals through pageantry, so 
through pageantry it can visualize the ideals and 
history of the nation. In the development of mir 
folk-ccmsciousness lies the lioiie not only of (inr art 
but of our national unity. .\nd for the develu]!- 



nient of any influence that tends to nationalize us, 
surely now, if ever, the time is at hand. 

Mr. Vermont's sugestions are the fruit of ripe 
experience, but it is not the experience of one who 
is so old at the pageant game as to have forgotten the 
difficulties of beginners. He gives yon the general 
survey and then tips you some timely winks. He 
outlines the duties of the director and the commit- 
tees; and he covers the matters of themes, texts, 
setting, and costumes. But he does not stop there. 
He advises the director to make all changes in the 
cast openly, in the presence of the. players; he warns 
the properties committee not to wait until the morn- 
ing after the show to collect the costumes: in short 
he throws off a number of such more intimate hints. 
Perhaps the most valuable of Mr. Vermont's sug- 
gestions is one for a would-be director: it is the un- 
conscious revelation of Mr. Vermont's own geniality, 
patience, knowledge of human nature, and common 
sense. 

Both writers are charged with a contagious en- 
thusiasm. — J. M. Booker. 



Durham County: Economic and Social, is the title 
of a new 0.3 page illustrated bulletin that has just 
come from the press. It is the secoiul study of 
county economics and social problems to appear in 
North Carolina, the first lieing Sampson County : 
Economic and Social, issued late in 1917. 

The investigations which are set forth in the 
l)ublication have been made by ^lessrs. M. B. Fowler 
and W. M. Upchureh, members of the North Caro- 
lina Club of the State University, and have been 
carried on during the jiast thirteen months. They 
are based on census reports of the federal government 
and official Noi'th Carolina publications, together 
with information contained in the files of the de- 
partment of Rural Sociology and Economics of the 
T'niversity. 

In bringing out this study it has been the purpose 
of the authors to place the information contained in 
it in every home in Durham County. It is also \n-o- 
posed that it be used as a text-book for high school 
l)upils throughout Durham County, as well as a 
handbook for bankers, preachers, teachers and others 
interested in the development of the county. 

The chapter headings of the bulletin indicate its 
general scojie: 

Historical Background, Natural Resources, Facts 
About the Folk, Wealth and Taxation, Industries 
and Opportunities, Farm Conditions, Farm Prac- 
tices, Status of Our Rural Schools, Seven-year Gains 
in Rural Schools, Durham City Schools Comi)ared

with those of Winston-Salem, Other Durham (^ounty 
Institutions of Learning, Home-Raised Food and 
the Local Market Problem, Where We Lead and 
Where We Lag, Our Problems and Their Solution. 
Three thousand eojjics have been issn(Ml, the ex- 
pense of publication having been borne bv !\Ir. John 
Sprunt Hill, of Durham, who, in recent years has 
given abundant evidence of a keen interest in tlie 
welfare not only of rural Durham, but of rural Xorth 
Carolina as well. ('o])ies of the bulletin may be 
received liy applying to \. M. Coates, President 
^orth Carolina Club, Chapel Hill. Send five cents 
in stain]>s to cover postage. 



A second bulletin by the School of Education on 
tile use of Educational Tests and Measurements in 
the Study of Classroom Products has recently ap- 
peared as Extension Series Xo. 27. This bulletin 
describes the method of procedure by which fifteen 
school systems in the State co-o]ierated with the 
School of Education in attem])ting to determine with 
what degree of fairness the standard scores in cer- 
tain classroom tests can be used as a basis on wiiich 
to judge the efficiency of classroom instruction. It 
furriicr contains tabulated results obtained from tiie 
us<' of these tests in these systems last fall. A brief 
jiaragraph of description, explanation and comment 
accompanies each table. 

The tables are signiificant as showing how different 
grades in the same system will rank differently in the 
several school subjects and more significant still as 
showing very clearly and very unmistakably that 
all our schools need to have certain school subjects 
taught with a greater intensity and with a much 
greater degree of attention to the s]iecific needs of 
a given cjass or grade. 

The statistics were ]irepared by Mv. L. L. Lohr, 
Jr., Assistant in the School of Education, under the 
direction of Dr. L. A. Williams. Tliis bulletin fol- 
lows the one prepared last year by Dr. H. W. Chase, 
on the Measurement of Achievement in the Funda- 
mental Elementary School Subjects, and will lie fol- 
lowed by one which will set forth tlie results of the 
s])ring tests now being given. 



A third section of Selections for S])eakiug in the 
l^iblic Schools has just been published by the Pni- 
versity as War Information Series No. 17. In the 
]iresent leaflet, which is devoted to materials suita- 
ble for use on Memorial Day and Flag Day. the 
editors, Professors L. A. Williams, ]McKie, and Han- 
ford, have continued their policy of adding to the 
standard selections pieces which touch upon the great 



issues and appeal to the emotions of the preSent day. 
Thej- recognize, for example, that Memorial Day 
has now come to have a new significance, by printing, 
together with Timrod's "Magnolia Cemetery Ode," 
such pieces as Clinton Scollard's "An American Sol- 
dier Slain in France." The extraordinary success 
which these selections have had, not in Xorth Car- 
olina alone, but very widely throughout the country, 
indicates that the I'niversitj has here perceived the 
opjiortunity to render a valuable service to the cause 
of patriotic education. 



Extension Leaflet Xo. 17, recently issued by the 
Bureau of Extension under the title, "'The Division 
for Women," sets forth the purpose of that division 
of the Bureau, under the direction of Mrs. Thos. W. 
Lingle, which undertakes to carry the Ijenefits of 
the T^niversity to the women of Xorth Carolina. 
In addition to setting forth the nature of the ser- 
\ice which the Division is attemjiting to render, the 
Leaflet broadly outlines the proposed study course 
for the Xorth Carolina Federation of Women's Club 
for 1918-19. Copies may be secured by applying 
to the Bureau of Extension. 



I )r. L. L. Bernard, of the LTniversity of Minnesota, 
reviewing the Xorth Carolina Club Year-Book in 
the American Jourixal of Sociology for March says: 

"The Xorth Carolina Club, which works in affilia- 
tion with the department of Rural Economics and 
Sociology of the University of Xorth Carolina, and 
is composed primarily of students, has performed 
the useful labor of getting out a year-book setting 
forth the social, political, and economic conditions 
of the State. Rural problems are emphasized and 
jirograms for betterment are indicated. The chap- 
ters concerned with 'Wealth Produced by Carolina 
Farms,' 'Accumulation and Farms," "Public School 
Properties,' "Public Health Woi'k and Charities and 
Corrections,' will be particular interest to sociolo- 
gists." 



According to an announcement made by the State 
Board of Health early in April, Ronald B. Wilson, 
of the class of 190.5, has assumed the duties of 
health editor of the State Health department. 

^fr. Wilson has served on the Asheville Citizen, 
the Wilmington Dinp<ifrh and the Raleigh News and 
Observer, in responsible capacities, as well as hav- 
ing had valuable experience in the weekly field, not- 
ably as editor and publisher of the Brevard Xeirx 
and the Waynesville Courier. He has recently been 
serving' on the staff of theA'eics and Ohaerrer.

Editor, The Review: 

Sir: — I notice in the last issue of the Review that John A. 
Parker states only three members of the class of 1906 are 
iu military service of the United States at present, that is 
B. H. Perry, T. P. Cheshire, and John A. Parker. So far as I 
am able to learn this statement is correct. 

Out of justice to other members of our class, however, I 
think it nothing but fair to say that all the other members 
of the class are doing ' ' their best ' ' at home and rendering 
patriotic services for their country. Most all of them are 
now married men and have not seen fit to leave their fami- 
lies but you may be assured that when their country 's call 
demands their services more than their families and when 
their services will be of more benefit at the front than at 
home everyone of them will respond not only readily but 
eagerly. 

I appreciate very much the Alumni Review most espec- 
ially since our country is in war in earnest. 

With best wishes, 

Yours truly, 

Albemarle, N. C. W. L. JIaxx, '06.

— before they went to France — 

a large number of the class of 1917 made their wills. 

A simple thing to do, for few of them had much in the way of 

fortune. 
But they made their wills, in order that they might leave at least 

one hundred dollars to the Alumni Loyalty Fund. 

— It is a simple thing they did ; but it has about it the indomitable spirit of im- 
mortality and the gracious spirit of loyal knighthood. 

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

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

— Each after his ability and with equal desire! 

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

— WHY should not every loyal alumnus on the firing line of life make a bequest to 
the Loyalty Fund ? He withdraws nothing from use ; he is enabled to give 
back to the institution and to societ}' 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!
