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 the 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 Xew England Mutual. 

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

THE 123d 

The Commencement of 1917 

iMENT followin S close u P° n the declara- 
tion of war and the rush of stu- 
dents and alumni to training 
camps, and made notable by 
the presence of Secretaries 
Baker and Daniels, pulsed 
with a spontaneous, vital pa- 
triotism. The colors waved, 
the drums rolled, the campus 
thrilled with patriotic fervor. 

The Commencement of 
1918 was pitched in a dif- 
ferent key. The flag, to be 
sure, was in evidence every- 
where. The procession moved 
across the campus to the now 
familiar tune of " Ov e r 
There." But the current of 
patriotic feeling, while run- 
ning swiftly, ran deeper. Red 
Cross and Liberty Bond but- 
tons, leaves of absence for 
professors forsaking the class- 
room for the war laboratory, 
the khaki and blue of soldier 
and sailor uniforms mingled 
with the black gown, bore 
witness to a finer, deeper pa- 
triotism expressing itself in 
devotion to America's ideal 
and a determination on the 
part of students, alumni, fac- 
ulty, and University to "car- 
ry on" whether on the cam- 
pus or back at home, or on 
the fields of France. 

To repeat, this spirit of 
Commencement was distinctly that of to "carry on.'' 
It has grown steadily throughout the year and it has 
been the distinctive characteristic of all Carolina's 
work through the year. On the part of the student

body it has meant the giving up of many of the usual 
campus interests and the substitution of strict mili- 
tary training. It has also meant to them a more 
diligent application to class- 
room work as reflected in the 
high grades of both terms of 
the session. On the part of 
the faculty it has meant the 
sudden substitution of stud- 
ies and courses with a dis- 
tinctive war "slant" for those 
grown familiar through fre- 
quent repetition. In many 
instances these have been of- 
fered at camp or extension 
center, or through publica- 
tion, as the demands of the 
situation required. And on 
the part of the alumni it has 
meant the whole-hearted en- 
try into the service. 

Just what the story of this 
combined, cumulative effort 
is through which this spirit 
has expressed itself has been 
told from time to time in The 
Review. For the alumni 
who returned to Commence- 
ment it was strikingly por- 
trayed by Mr. Woollen, vis- 
ualizer of many of Caro- 
lina's signal achievements, in 
an artistic red, white, and 
blue place-card, the central 
part of which, without the 
frame of bars and stars, is 
reproduced in the center of 
this page. 
No single item in the exhibit conveys its full signi- 
ficance. Xor does the total exhibit. But it suggests 
better than anything else the spirit of determination 
to "carry on" with which Commencement breathed. 




The Review wishes that every alumnus, especially 
every class officer or local alumni association officer, 

ci mid have attended the 
meeting of the Association of 
Alumni Secretaries which 
met with Yale University at New Haven, Conn., 
May 10 and 11, and could have participated in the 
discussions of that exceedingly alert organization. 
Approximately forty alumni secretaries, alumni of- 
ficers, and editors of alumni publications, all in the 
closest touch with alumni activities, were present, 
and for two days discussed what today is one of the 
most vital of college matters — the relation of the 
alumni to the university in war times. The dis- 
cussion was held to the following main topics: 1. 
Alumni and the Financing of a University in War 
Time. 2. The Alumni Publication in War Time. 

3. Alumni Meetings and Reunions in War Time. 

4. The Keeping of Alumni War Records. 

In the case of the privately endowed institutions 
of the East, their income has been seriously cut 
through the loss of students. The institutions, so 
vital to the winning of the war and to the rebuilding 
of the nation after the war, have to he maintained 
at top efficiency. They have to "carry on". To do 
this, it has been the duty of the alumni to meet the 
deficit— at Yale $260,000 for 1<> 1 7-1 *— which, 
through their Alumni Loyalty Fund, they have done, 
and, in addition will add something over $200,000 
to the principal. 

The situation with the state universities is some- 
what similiar. Their incomes have not been mater- 
ially cut, but the full co-operation of the alumni is 
essential in enabling them to continue to function 
in all essentials and "carry on" so that at the end 
of the conflict the new civilization will not look in 
vain for enlightened leadership. 

Many men in middle life and beyond envy the 
khaki clad youths the privilege of ii< linu over the 
top. Alumni of American colleges and universities 
who have reached this point of life, however, are not 
denied the privilege of serving, and no finer field has 
yet been discovered than that of keeping Alma Mater 
true to her best and supporting the cause of educa- 
tion generally. 

□ □□ 

The home-coming of L908, the story of which is 
told in the Alumni section of this issue, splendidly 
illustrates the value of effective alum- 
ni organizations. For ten years the 
class secretary, James A. Gray, Jr., 
has issued a class bulletin, subscriptions have been 
maintained, and on June 4th. twenty-nine members 

1918's HOME 

of the class stepped upon the rostrum and handed 
the University a check for $1,000 to be added to the 
Alumni Loyalty Fund. At the same time the class, 
which had stood so staunchly by the University in its 
first ten years of after-college life, elevated its sec- 
retary to the position of president, perfected an even 
mi re thorough organization, and left the campus 
determined to play the part of an intelligent sup- 
porter of the institution and the cause of education 
in the days ahead. Incidentally it served notice mi 
the class of 1905 and all other classes which have 
previously brought gifts on reunion occasions, that 
this was but the beginning, and that five years hence 
the same sort of thing was to he repeated. All of 
which points conclusively to the fact that one of these 
days Alumni Day will cease to he largely a grand 
pow wow fest. It will become a day on which the 
spirit and worth of Carolina men will express them- 
selves in purposeful, far-reaching deeds. 


Tiii': Review does not wish to he unsympathet- 

ically critical, hut it- must say a few things about the 

program for Alumni Day. Under the 

NEEDED present regime there is too much pow 

wowing and too little fellowshiping. 
Ami there is by far too little planning for the future. 
Despite their antics, the alumni are an intelligent 
body of people. They have ideas, they like tremen- 
dously to do big and useful things, but at present they 
can't get at them. They are drowned in a flood of 
"back in the days of Old Wilkes Caldwell we did so 
and so", or "John Smith led the immortal band up 
the slopes of Berry Hill." Which is splendid, pro- 
vided it is unloosed at a class banquet, or out on the 
benches under the trees, or ( in the event that it is 
very cleverly done) at the big Alumni Banquet, And 
The Review urges that provision for just this sort 
of thing be made — but somewhere other than at the 
Alumni meeting. Tt is tremendously worth while. 
It's really the big thing to the majority of men who 
have come back to see each other, and it will con- 
tinue to be so as long as men are human. 

At the same time. Tin: Review believes that the 
public exercises of the day should be clean cut and 
should lead somewhere. A thirty-minute alumni 
address, full of some present-day alumni matter, 
would be worth while. Furthermore, the president 
of the University should have an opportunity to tell 
the alumni of what is going on in the University. 
And this should he done before the crowd has been 
literally "gassed", and momentarily expecting re- 
lease by the ringing of the luncheon hell. 




And then it is to be hoped that one of these days 
the business meeting will transact business. For 
there is plenty of busines to transact. Heaven only 
knows how much! Places on the Executive Com- 
mittee and in the offices should not go by default : and 
the contest for office, outlined months before in The 
Review, should come to a sharp intelligent issue. 


After five years of constant work in behalf of the 
alumni and the University, E. R. Rankin, '13, has 
entered the service at Camp Jackson. 
What this means to the University 
and to The Review, of which he was 
the Business Manager, has already been felt. And 
it will lie still more felt because of the variety and 
quality and excellence of what he did. 

Mr. Rankin's going lays responsibility on new 
shoulders. For five years he has, singlehanded, with- 
out any support whatever, and upon his own respon- 
sibility, financed The Review. And during the 
five years he has not allowed one word to appeal' in 
these columns on this subject. 

And it is upon your shoulders, Mr. Alumnus, that 
this responsibility has been laid — especially if your 
class dates back of 1010. Twelve hundred of the 
younger alumni are in service. This represents ap- 
proximately one third of The Review's subscrip- 
tion list. This, together with increased m<t of print- 
ing, postage, etc.. means that the older alumni and 
the families of the boys in service, must come to the 
support of the publication and see that it goes as 
regularly as possible to camp and overseas. Picture 
yourself in a trench across the Atlantic, and imagine 
what you would think of the fellow back home if 
he did not keep up to par the publication which to 
him is veritably a letter from home. 


It has been impossible to replace Mr. Rankin. His 
work as Secretary of the Debating Union ha- been 

INTRODUCING *£** T" ^ ^ ^ 7 ^ 
R W MADRY continues as Alumni .Secretary, 

but obviously he cannot give atten- 
tion to this very important work. The track-meet 
and athletic events which he directed will be taken 
over by the Athletic Committee. Mr. A. M. Coates 
and N. G. Gooding will be interested in the campaign 
for new students, and Mr. R. W. Madry will as- 
sume the business management of The Review. 

In this connection, we wish to urge that every sub- 
scriber renew his subscription at once. To bill the 
entire list will cost $00.00 in postage, not to men- 
tion stationery, labor, etc. So here is an opportunity 
to co-operate and to conserve. Will you seize it ? 

Attention is directed to the courses in military 
science, French, and engineering to be offered next 

. year, mention of which i- made else-

COURSES "'here m this issue, lnrough these pro- 
posed courses the University gives evi- 
dence of its vitality and ability to adapt its services 
to the requirements of the hour. Read the statement, 
and then tell the high school boys in your community 
about it. 

If you have any doubt as to the value of college 
training in these and similiar subjects, it will be 
illuminating to read the following excerpt from a 
letter by William Cobb to his father, Professor Cobb, 
of the University. It embodies a quotation from Mr. 
< 'i dil>*s instructor. It is based on statistics which 
show that only four men out of every hundred who 
apply for entry into the aviation service are admitted. 
Mr. Cobb is speaking as a member of the fortunate 
four per cent. 

"I have a very good chance of making good. Only 
seven per cent of the college graduates who are ad- 
mitted fail. Twenty-five per cent of those with only 
high school training fail, and forty-one per cent of 
those who have never been to high school. So you 
-re. T am in a favored class." 


In our last issue in commenting oupon the career 
of Dr. Stephen 15. Weeks, we stated that Dr. Weeks 
was the first Xorth Carolinian to 
receive the degree of doctor of 
philosophy from Johns Hopkins University. We 
find that we were mistaken in this. The distinction 
belongs to Dr. ( '. L. Smith, of Raleigh, a member 
of the Board of Trustees. 



According to a telegram received from the War De- 
partment on Saturday, dune 15, the University has 
been designated as a Reserve Officers Training Corps 
of senior grade for the year 101S-10, and Lieut-Col- 
onel G. W. S. Stevens has been assigned as Comman- 

Through this order of the War Department, Caro- 
lina's work in military training receives full govern- 
ment recognition. Students who take the training 
will be provided with equipment, will receive $8.00 
monthly as remuneration, and their work will lead 
to provisional commissions. 

Chapel Hill more than doubled its Red Cross war 
fund. The allotment was $500.00; the total amount 
subscribed reached $1156.60. 




The closing exerieses of the senior class featured 
the second day's commencement program, Monday, 
June 3. The farewell address by ex-President Battle, 
the speech in behalf of the class by President William 
York, the oratorical contest between W. H. Stephen- 
son and Albert M. Coates, and the final exercises 
under the Davie Poplar, all were exceedingly inter- 
esting. The anniversary meetings and smokers of 
the Dialectic and Philanthropic literary societies at 
night concluded the day's program. 
Dr. Battle Bids Farewell 

The class day program began at 9 :30 in the morn- 
ing when the graduating class formed in front of 
the old well and marched to Chapel, where they 
heard Dr. Battle. 

In his parting admonition Dr. Battle insisted 
that the class should cultivate the quality of relia- 
bility, which includes practically all the virtues. It 
means, he said, the cultivation of the mind, the heart, 
and of forming the right habits. He urged upon 
them punctuality in meeting the various engagements 
of life. The class was thanked for its excellent con- 
duct while here and asked to keep alive the ideals and 
traditions of the University. 

President York's Farewell 

The public exercises of the day began at 10 :30 
a. m. in Gerrard Hall. President William York, of 
High Point, expressed a profound feeling of ap- 
preciation and gratitude in behalf of his classmates 
to the faculty and townspeople for the uplifting and 
constructive things done for the class, and for the 
many kindnesses shown it. 

< Vintrasting the peaceful conditions of four years 
ago when the class was preparing to enter upon its 
University career with those of today, President 
York said the University had given the seniors the 
proper tools for carving the correct answer to the 
various problems of life. ''The end of the war will 
bring greater problems, which it is our duty to solve. 
If we have made a structure on which to put the roof 
of life, then our future need not be feared," he said 
in closing. Clasg Gift of $2500 

The class gift of $2,500 to the University, payable 
in five annual installments, was presented by J. Y. 
Baggett, of Salemburg. The seniors have all signed 
five notes of five dollars each to become due each 
year for the next five years. 

Coates Wins Mangum Medal 

The meeting was then turned over to Professor 
Geo. M. McKie, who introduced the contestants for 
the Willie P. Mangum medal. W. Hernias Stephen- 

son, of Raleigh, and Albert M. Coates, of Smithfield. 
Mr. Coates won the medal, his subject being "Amer- 
ica's Message to the World"'. Mr. Stephenson's ora- 
tion had as its theme "America's Answer to Autoc- 
racy'* Challenge". Both speakers delivered their 
speeches in an unusually forceful manner. 

Under the Davie Poplar 

At 7 :30 p. m. the final exercises of the class were 
staged under the Davie poplar. Seated in a circle 
around the venerable tree, the members of eighteen 
smoked the peacepipe and tied the lasting knots of 
friendship. W. Hermas Stephenson, of Raleigh, read 
the class history, while E. A. Griffin, of Goldsboro, 
the statistician, showed that the class members had 
been crowned with many honors. In the absence of 
W. R. Wunsch, Watt W. Eagle, of Statesville, read 
the class prophesy. The last will and testament was 
presented by Y. S. Bryant, Jr., of Durham. Albert 
M. Coates, of Smithfield. read the class poem in the 
absence of C. G. Tennent. 

Literary Societies Celebrate 

A happy combination of anniversary meetings and 
smokers of the Dialectic and Philanthropic literary 
societies marked the culmination of the day's events. 
They were pronounced a big success. 

Among the Phi speakers were Professor Alex 
Graham, of Charlotte; Dr. W. H. Atkinson. Wash- 
ington City; S. Austin, Nash county; Judge F. D. 
Winston, Windsor; Professors M. C. S. Noble, Col- 
lier Cobb, and H. M. Wagstaff, all of Chapel Hill. 
Dr. W. D. Moss, of Chapel Hill; W. T. Bost, of 
Raleigh ; Dr. W. J. Battle, of the University of Cin- 
cinnati, were among the list of Di alumni speakers. 


At the examination held by the North Carolina 
Board of Pharmacy at Raleigh. June 11 and 12, 
there were eight students from the Pharmacy School 
among the list of candidates for license to practice 
pharmacy. Every one of these men were successful 
in passing the examination — J. T. Morgan, of Ben- 
son, a member of this year's graduating class, by 
leading all other candidates in percentage grade, was 
awarded the Beal prize of a membership in the North 
( 'arolina Pharmaceutical Association, as well as the 
Hancock medal. The students from the University 
who stood and passed the Board were : J. T. Morgan, 
Benson ; P. J. Brame, Jr., Winston-Salem ; Alberto 
Soler, Cuba ; J. E. Mull. Morganton ; J. M. Pritch- 
ard. Chapel Hill; J. F. Rosemond, Kinston; Hershel 
Roberts, Leicester; Seth Creech. Benson.

The Classes of 1858, 1868, 1893, and 1898 Back for Reunion 



Alumni Are Present in Numbers to Uphold Carolina's Work 

From every section of the country, sons of the 
University were present on Alumni Day, June 4th, 
to cheer Alma Mater at her task and to assist her 
in her program of "carrying on" and further con- 
struction to which she is devoting her whole mind, 
heart, and strength. 

R. D. W. Connor, '99, Presides 
R. I). W. Connor, '99, president of the General 
Alumni Association, opened the exercises of the day 
by presenting Francis D. Winston, '70, as the master 
of reunion and luncheon ceremonies. The classes 
of 1S58, 1868, 1888, 1803. 1808, 1003, 1008, 1013, 
and 1017 were present and in turn participated in the 

Class of 1858 
The class of 1858 was represented^ by the Rev. 
Dr. R. H. Marsh, of Granville county, who com- 
mented briefly on the relationship of his class to the 
University. Among alumni present he saw Major 
John W. Graham, of Hillshoro, of the class of 1857, 
and he referred to him as a leader of sophomoric 
invasions sixty-four years ago. He lamented the 
fact that other members of his class could not be 

Class of 1868 
Judge A. W. Graham, of Oxford, was chief spokes- 
man of the elass of 1868. This was the last class to en- 
ter during the Civil War, as well as the last to grad- 
uate from the University under the old regime. At 
the end of the war seven of the 31 members who had 
entered in 1864 remained to graduate. Members of 
the class present on Alumni Day were: W. I). Hor- 
ner. Henderson; George W. Graham, Charlotte; A. 
W. Graham, Oxford; YV. S. Pearson, llorganton. 
Genera] Julian S. Carr, of the elass of '66, sat on the 
rostrum with the class. 

Class of 1888 
Rev. St. (lair Hester, of Brooklyn, ami Dr. Wil- 
liam J. Battle, of the University of Cincinnati, spoke 
for the class of 1888. Dr. Hester told of the achieve- 
ments of his classmates and showed that they all had 
made good. Me was especiaaly pleased to he back 
in North Carolina after living with the Yankees for 
awhile, lie paid special tribute to ex-President 
Kemp 1'. Battle, "the historian and grand old man 
i f North Carolina." \Y. J. Battle read a list of the 
members of the class and told of their location and 
occupation. Letters were read from M. A. Davis 
and Eugene Withers expressing keen regret in not 

being able to be present. Three other members of 
the class were present: Wade H. Atkinson, 1402 W. 
M St., N. W., Washington, D. C. ; Frank M. Harper, 
Raleigh ; and Maxcy L. John, Laurinbiirg, X. C. 
Class of 1893 

The class of 1S93 was present with thirteen mem- 
bers. J. Crawford Biggs, of Raleigh, was chief 
spokesman, being president of the class in his senior 
year. Statistics showed that most of the members are 
professional men. Mr. Biggs said that baseball and 
football were begun while the class was in the Uni- 
versity. He commented briefly on several members 
of the class not present, among them being Alf Bon- 
ner, Senator F. 0. Harding, of Greenville, Dr. Mich- 
ael Hoke, of Atlanta, A. B. Andrews, of Raleigh, 
J. T. Pugh, of Boston, and Col. Wm. Preston Wooten. 
who commanded the first regiment of American 
ican troops to march through the streets of Paris. 

Dr. Howard Rondthaler, president of Salem Col- 
lege, Rev. Hubbard Argo, of Pennsylvania, and F. 
.M. Wilson, Headmaster of the Haverford School, of 
Pennsylvania, were other class speakers. Other 
'members present were: Alex. H. Koonce, Chapel 
Hill: Perrin Busbee, Raleigh; S. F. Austin, Nash- 
ville; C. O. McMichael, Wentworth; Wm. B. Snow. 
Raleigh; Rufus L. Patterson, New York; Douglas 
Homer, McCall, S. C. ; and A. G. Mangum, Gas- 

t0ma - Class of 1898 

Dr. Archibald Henderson made a few remarks in 
behalf of the class of 1808. He said the class had 
two supreme distinctions in that it had the first 
woman to graduate from the University, and one 
of its members became president of the University, 
Dr. F. K. Graham. P. D. Gobi, of New York, dis- 
cussed the remarkable changes which had come over 
the University since his days. Fight members oi 
the cdass were present. 

F. S. Hassell for 1903 

F. S. Hassell, of Wilson, was the speaker for 1903. 
The idass entered the University 150 strong and 
graduated 57. Its members were leaders in all phases 
of college life, and their number at present includes 
many professional men. Ten members of the class 
were present. 

1908 Presents $1,000 Gift 

I. W. Andrews, of Salisbury, introduced Jas. A. 
Cray, Jr., (da.--- secretary, who gave some interesting 
statistics. Twenty-nine members of the class were 



on the platform. Mr. Gray turned over to President 
Graham a check for $1,000 as the sum pledged when 
the class left the University ten years ago. The 
sum was placed to the credit of the Alumni Loyalty 

The classes of 1913 and 1917, whose leadership 
is largely in service, concluded the reunion exercises 
with the premise of returning in numbers when the 
war is over and their present task is dune. 
Business Meeting Held 

Following the reunions a business meeting of the 
Association was held. President Graham spoke of 

the number of the men the University had -cut into 
the service and emphasized the fact that it was the 
University's supreme duty to carry on its work and 
to make clear the nature of the ideal for which Amer- 
ica is fighting. R. D. W. Connor was re-elected 
president and E. R. Rankin secretary. 

At 2:00 o'clock the Alumni Luncheon was held in 
Swain Hall. Judge Winston was toast-master and 
spirited speeches were made by Dr. Edwin Mims, 
Bishop Edward Rondthaler, T. J. Gold. , o: > >, II. A. 
Doughton, "so, W. .1. Brcgden, '98, P. D. Gold, '98, 
and C. O. McMiehael, '93. 


One Hundred and Three Students Receive Degrees 

A crowd that taxed the capacity of Memorial Hall 
heard Dr. Frederick C. Howe, Commissioner of Im- 
migration at the Port of New York, deliver the com- 
mencement address during the closing hours of 
the University finals on Wednesday, June .">. De- 
grees were conferred on 103 candidates by Governor 
Thomas Walter Pickett, the candidates being pre- 
sented by the deans id' the various schools of arts, 
science, law, medicine, and pharmacy. 

The honorary degree of doctor of laws was con- 
ferred by President Graham on Governor Pickett; 
Professor Edwin Minis, id' Vanderbilt University, 
for three years a professsor of English literature at 
the University: Senator Lee Slater Overman, of 
Salisbury, a member of the United States Senate for 
the past fifteen years; and Bishop Edward Rond- 
thaler of Winston-Salem, bishop of the Moravians of 
the South since 1891 and formerly president id' Salem 
College. The Rev. W. D. Moss! of the Chapel Hill 
Presbyterian Church, received the honorary degree- 
of doctor of divinity. 

Opening Exercises 

The exercises of the day began at 10:45 with the 
marching id' the academic procession, led by the Uni- 
versity hand, across the campus to Memorial Hall, 
where the invocation was offered by Bishop Edward 
Rondthaler. of Winston-Salem. The speaker of 
the occasion. Dr. Frederick C. Howe, was introduced 
by President Graham. 

Dr. Howe Speaks 

Dr. Howe's address was distinguished for its force, 
eloquence, and clearness. As author, traveler, student. 
speaker, thinker, and finally as Commissioner of Im- 
migration at the Port of New York, Dr. Howe was 

admirably fitted to give an accurate and intelligent 
discussion of his subject, "America After the War." 

After the war — what '. is the question that is being 
asked by all classes: by the manufacturer, the busi- 
iii -s man and the banker; by the farmer; and most 
insistently of all by the workers; and by many 
women. Will we t>o hack to the old individualism of 
every man for himself and devil take the hindmost ; 
or has America become a new kind id' nation, inter- 
laced in thousands of new ways with the govern- 
ment \ Have we changed from a legalized nation to 
an industrial state socialism? These are some of the 
questions in his opening remarks to which he ad- 
dressed himself. "It would he a brave prophet vim 
would attempt to forecast the America that is to issue 
from the war. lint of some things we may he reason- 
ably certain," the speaker declared. 

Dr. Howe made it clear that it is incumbent upon 
those who remain at home to provide for the repatria- 
tion of the hoys "over there" who have offereed their 
all in the common defense — repatriation in a way 
that will nor prolong their sacrifices when the war 
is over. When they come hack to America we should 
he prepared to distribute them to their homes, to em- 
ployment, to as immediate contact with their former 
occupations as possible. In a sense our whole after 
the war reconstruction program should he visualized 
in our program for the repatriation of returning s >1-

Dr. Howe spoke directly to the 
'Study yourself 
and see how you are made," he said. "Ignore the 
pressure of public opinion if you feel that you are 
in the right. You mav suffer for the time being, hut

During 1918-19 Special Courses in Military Science, Engineering and French 

Are to Be Offered 

From the moment of America's entry into the war, 
the University has constantly striven so to adjust its 
curriculum as to insure that special sort of training 
which would best serve its students in the present 
emergency. To this end, a five-hour course in mil- 
itary science was offered in 1917-18, and the work of 
the University Battalion has been such as to win high 

Additional Courses Offered 

In order to continue the work in this field already 
begun, the faculty committee on Military Science has 
outlined the following course for 101S-19: 

First year course — Thirty minutes setting up ex- 
ercises five mornings and drill two afternoons, seven 
hours per week. Credit 3 hours. The work will 
consist of drill, manoeuvres, hikes, bayonet work, 
trench warfare, bombing tactics, elementary map 
reading, sketching, use of compass, etc. 

Second year course — Thirty minutes setting up 
exercises five mornings and drill two afternoons, 
seven hours per week. Credit 3 hours. The work 
will consist of drill, day and night manoeuvres, 
signalling, bayonet fighting, tactics, musketry (fir- 
ing on range), advanced trench warfare, advanced 
military engineering, map reading, sketching, bridge 
building, use of compass, etc. 

Military French 

Men now overseas are constantly in need of famil- 
iarity with French. Two courses, one elementary, 
and the other intermediary, are to be given which 
will afford special practice in the spoken language. 
Credit for these courses will be given as for the 
present courses French A and French 1-2. 

Deferred Classification for Engineering Students 

According to the recent ruling of the War Depart- 
ment, students in enginering who are preparing for 
military service are to lie placed in a deferred classi- 
fication and allowed to remain in college till their 
course is completed. 

Tn order to meet the government's requirements, 
the University proposes to offer a special three-year 
war course in engineering. This course, a condensa- 
tion of the regular four-year engineering courses, will 
be offered for the duration of the war and will lead 
to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering. 
As now planned, the course will include two years 
of military science and drill, two special courses in 
military French, as well as the courses in the funda- 

mental sciences, and there will be three options each 
leading directly into a definite branch of the militarj 

Option one, leading to service in the Engineers' 
Corps, will be based on a special course in military 
engineering, covering roads, bridges, mapping, etc. 
Certain students electing this option may enlist in 
the Enlisted Reserve Corps of the Engineering De- 
partment and be placed in Class V on the ground 
that they are in the military service of the United 
States. On completion of the course they are au- 
tomatically called to the colors. 

Option two will be given in co-operation with the 
Signal Corps and will be based on a special course 
in radio engineering, part of the apparatus for which 
will be supplied by the Signal Corps. Students elect- 
ing this option will enlist in the Signal Enlisted Re- 
serve Corps and they likewise will not" be called to 
the colors until they have completed their training. 

Option three will train men for a special five- 
months' course in the United States Navy Steam En- 
gineering School at Hoboken, N. J., upon the satis- 
factory completion of which they will be commis- 
sioned as Ensigns in the Navy for engineering duties. 
Students electing this option will enlist in the Naval 
Reserve Force as Seamen 2nd class and will not be 
called for service until they are graduated. 

It is intended to issue a special bulletin describing 
fully the above courses as soon as all the details have 
been arranged. The alumni can be of great service 
to the University and to the country as well if they 
will send Professor Daggett the names of the high 
school graduates in their communities whose natural 
bent and inclinations would qualify them for service 
along the above lines. 


Carolina medical students graduating this year 
at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, carried 
off honors as follows: William Coppidge — Da Costa 
prize in Surgery; F. Angel — MacCrae gold medal 
in Medicine; 0. R. Wolff — Montgomery medal in 
Gynecology; C. P. Mangum — medal in Otology. 

Twelve medical students at the University of 
Pennsylvania, in completing their third and fourth 
years' work, made a general high average of 86.0. 
Tn speaking of this, Dean Pepper characterized it as 
a "very remarkable performance". 



By W. B. PITTS, 16 
1st Lieut. 38th Infantry 

(In a letter to Dr. William Dey) 

France, April 30. 

I always hoped to see France some day but the 
circumstances of my first visit are somewhat dif- 
ferent from what I expected back in 1916. I'm 
over here at last and was very glad to find myself 
actually in France after a good trip across. 

Ever since I left college I have enjoyed keeping 
up my French, although I had very few chances to 
practice my conversation. I was a little dubious the 
first day but soon started a conversation with a 
little newsboy who wanted to carry my baggage. I 
found my first attempt at reviving my French was 
successful, so I began taking advantage of every op- 
portunity to use it, and have been studying more in 
the little time I have when the scheduled work, which 
is real work, is over. I soon found that I recalled 
a great deal of what I had studied and now have very 
little difficulty making myself understood anywhere. 
It was a long road thru some of the lessons in the 
little Matzke book but I am only too glad now that I 
was able to have the language all the time I was in 
college. Aside from my personal pleasure in using 
French, a very practical use has been found for what 
I know of it. I am the only one in my outfit who 
can speak it and am constantly in demand as an 
interpreter for the benefit of all concerned. You 

can't overestimate the importance of an officer's 
knowing French. 

The people are very kind, pleasant and have the 
highest regard for all American soldiers, but there 
are a great many times when a French-speaking 
American can make things run more smoothly if he 
acts as interpreter for both soldiers and the people. 

I find something new and very interesting every 
day. and can hardly realize sometimes that I am 
really in France, hut it takes only one look at some 
of the quaint old rambling buildings and the natives 
to convince me that I am not in the states.

Camp Gordon, Ga., May 29, 1918. 

Please send me as nearly as you can the Extension 
Leaflets that give information about the war. I am 
particularly desirous to read the syllabus of "Na- 
tional Ideals in British and American Literature", 
Xo. 14, I think it is. My interest is both personal 
and also in the possibility of using these in training 

I am fairly busy now with work that is interesting 
in spite of its gruelling nature, because it shows me 
so many types of American citizens. I am training 
recruits by a system that designs to fit them for duty 
in replacing casualties in organizations already

trained. I have just finished with a group from 
Indiana, and now am working with a bunch from 
Ohio. In France. I was with men from .New Eng- 
land, and officers coming casually from the West and 
South. It is a great experience in mixing. 

John Steadman is here. He loaned me the copy 
of The Review that inspired me to write to yon. 
He is an officer candidate in my battalion. There 
are other Carolina men here whom I have not yet 
got in touch with. 

Good hick to vmi all. 


The following interesting reference is made con- 
cerning .1. II. Cntchin, member of the University 
Medical School in 1907, by W. T. Ellis in "The 
Boys of '7<i in France," in the Saturday Evening 
Post of . I nne 15th : 

While I >ai in the dugout waiting for the ambu- 
lance that was to bear me through the night to regi- 
mental headquarters, the members of the corps kept 
moving quietly in and out on their grisly errands. 
These boys — tor they are only boys, such as we used 
to see loafing about the village cigar stor< — would 
talk as nonchalantly about an expedition to No Man's 
Land under tire as the farmer would speak of his 
evening trip to the barn to feed the stock. 

"We have brought down three more, sir; that 
makes the seven that were out by the wire." was the 
quiet report to the surgeon lieutenant made by two 
privates entering from the darkness. 

Then they began to talk about something to eat. 
One of them, as 1 was leaving, sent a message 
home that shows what really troubles the men at the 
Front. 1 had been chatting with the doctor — a 
chubby-faced, ever-smiling North Carolina lad named 
Cutchin, who would be a charming acquisition to 
an afternoon tea or dinner party, with that infectious 
smile which he lavished upon the wounded and upon 
his men and upon the visitor. Small wonder that in 

his absence the New England boys had 1 n boasting 

to me about him. As I left the dugout lie said: "If 
you see any of my people tell them that 1 am all 
right. I am getting along finely. I am perfectlv 
comfortable out here and they needn't worry a min- 
ute about me. They think I am having a hard 
time, but I am not: I am having just the best time 
in all the world." He wore shrapnel-proof helmet 
as he spoke, and was covered with French mud. and 
-pent his days in and out of a bombproof cave, on a 
road daily shelled by the Germans; yet his words 
were sincere and earnest and took no thoughl of the 


The following changes in the faculty for L918-19 
were authorized by the Hoard of Trustees at its

The one hundred and twenty-third Commencement 
exercises of the University began on Sunday, June 2, 
with the annual baccalaureate sermon in Gerrard 
Hall by Dr. D. .1. Fraser, president of the Presbyter- 
ian College of Montreal, Canada. 

Taking as his subject, "A Plea for the Spiritual in 
Education," Dr. Fraser stressed the point that the 
spiritual nature of man grasps truth which is not 
within reach of the ear, eye. and mind, spiritual 
nature being the organ for the perception of this kind 
id' knowledge. Applying this principle to history, to 
the external world, and to the experiences of human 
life. Dr. Fraser showed that observation ami the intel- 
lectual faculties do not carry one very far. "When. 
however, we bring our spiritual faculty to hear upon 
these three departments, we reach a spiritual view of 
nature, history, and human lite." 

In seeking the spiritual mean of life he said that 
three things constituted the problem, namely, the 
service that causes man's heroism, the experiences 
.>f sorrow and pain, and sorrow and remorse. Love 
is the solution of all these problems, he insisted. 

In the midst of the perplexing currents of history 
today, we as students need to cultivate the faculties 
of faith, hope, and love : ami in the words of St. Paul. 
"Love is the greatest of them all." Dr. Fraser -aid 
in conclusion. 

Vesper Services Held on Campus 
Vesper services conducted by Dr. W. 1). Moss, of 
the local Presbyterian Church, were held at 8 p. m. 
Sunday under the Davie poplar. Dr. Moss empha- 
sized the presence of God in human experiences and 
attempted to show that Cod will point out a man's 
life work. 

"Only along the lines of a Cod consciousness can a 
man find his life work successfully in the world. 
Whatever you are to do and whatever you are to he 
you should do and he according to what God tells 
you." he said, speaking directly to the seniors. 

"You young people are anxious to know your life 
work." Dr. Moss said in (dosing his talk. "If you 
will get Cod into your life work he will tell you what 
your life work is to he. He speaks by inspiration." 

R. II. Thornton, a member of the department of 
English and for several years instructor in journal- 
ism in the University, is now a member of Co. do.

dress at Salem College on Wednesday, May 29.

The following paragraph appeared in the New 
York Nation of June 15. Drs. Foerster and Pierson 
are members of the University faculty, and Mr. Long 
is an alumnus: 

Only years will reveal the effect of the war on the 
teaching of English in college and high school, but 
what promises to become one of the most important 
results has already made its appearance. It may 
be seen in Foerster and Pierson's "American Ideal-." 
in Gauss's "Democracy Today," in Watkins and Wil- 
lams's "Forum of Democracy," in Long's "Patriotic 
American Prose," and most notably in the War In- 
formation Series of the University of North Carolina 
(Chapel Hill, North Carolina). Two numbers, 
"American Ideals in American Literature,'' by Pro- 
fessor Edwin Minis, and "National Ideals in British 
and American Literature." prepared by a committee 
of the English department at North Carolina, are sig- 
nificant. The purpose of these syllabi is not to study 
literature as an art, or as recreation, or as a revelation 
of personality, or for other time-honored reasons. 
The purpose is to find in literature a reflection of 
national ideals. Professor Mim's pamphlet seems 
to have been somewhat hastily prepared. His analy- 
sis is largely chronological. In the text he makes 
references to articles which nowhere appear in the 
bibliographies. In the bibliographies he introduces 
as Americans such hitherto alien authors as II. Gr. 
Wells and Thomas Carlyle. Another evidence of 
haste in the proofreading — he misquotes, for example, 
so recent a title as Dewey's "Democracy and Educa- 
tion." The committee's syllabus on "National 
Ideals" is move thorough. Five chapters trace the 
evolution of national ideals in English Literature 
up to 1014. A sixth runs through American litera- 

ture in the same way. The concluding two reveal 
the relations of the war and democracy in contem- 
porary writings. The significant feature of this 
syllabus is that it will lead students to approach liter- 
ature with what will be for most of them a new point 
of view. Both the notes and the lists of writings 
will direct their attention, not incidentally, but con- 
tinuously, and with concentration, to disengaging the 
changing ideals of the nation. Both of the syllabi 
will help to disseminate among students of our Eng- 
lish literary heritage a deeper and more reasoned 
faith in the brotherhood of the future. 

"Wake County: Economic and Social" is the title 
of an interesting and instructive bulletin prepared 
at the headquarters of the North Carolina Club by 
the Wake County students in the University and is- 
sued by the Wake County Club, aided financially by 
the business men of Wake. 

The editorial board consists of G. B. Lay, Edi- 
tor-in-Chief; W. H. Stephenson, O. R. Cunningham, 
T. P. Harrison, Jr., R. C. Maxwell, J. R. Pearson. 
The bulletin covers 67 pages, and is in eight chap- 
ters: A Short History of Wake; Raleigh, Our Cap- 
ital City ; Natural Resources ; Industries, and Op- 
portunities; Wealth and Taxation in Wake County; 
Farm Conditions, Farm Practices, and The Local 
Market Problems; Seven Year Gains in Wake 
County Rural Schools; Where Wake County Leads: 
Our Problems and Their Solution. 

This is the third bulletin of its kind to be issued 
in America: the other two (Sampson County: Eco- 
nomic and Social, and Durham County: Economic 
and Social) having also been issued by students in 
the University. 

It is the most accurate and interpretative study 
that has been made of Wake County. It has given 
to the men who made it an invaluable training in the 
details of citizenship. It should serve to stimulate 
a county consciousness among those who read it. 
It is significant as an expression of the growing in- 
terests of colleges and college students in conditions 
about us and the times in which we live, which 
augurs well for the future. 

The appearance, just at Commencement time, of 
the second number of "The Range Finder," shows 
this admirable accession to the nation's periodical 
literature to have struck firm root in the soil of 
Chapel Hill. The journal, as all the world knows, 
is the official organ of English 21, one of the multi- 
plying indications that the college student is some- 
times what he was really intended to be, a first rate 
specimen of man thinking. The editors do not claim 



to enlighten the world absolutely, but only to pre- 
sent the student point of view. They are, perhaps, 
too modest and should enlarge their pretensions to 
match with their accomplishment. For the student 
point of view is, after all, the point of view of the 
educated man. The cloistral idea of student life 
has no place at the University of North Carolina, 
to-day, or indeed at any university save that memora- 
ble one, well known to all sophomores until they 
have passed their final examination in English lit- 
erature, at Weissniehtwo. Evidence that the North 
( 'arolina student no longer looks at the affairs of the 
great world, as those who, standing in the window 
of a castle see a battle and the adventures thereof 
below, is "The Range Finder" itself. The editorials, 
the longer articles, and the sallies of wit, entitled 2 l's 
are notably alive to the momentous issues of the 

Though they very frequently deal, as they should, 
with the relation of men in college to these issues. 
they need claim little indulgence for immaturity of 
thought or style. Once set up in print, headed and 
displayed in business-like fashion, these "themes" 
have to a surprising degree the effect of the real 
thing. They are uniformly good ; some of them are 
excellent. In such contributions as C. L. Snyder's 
"The Background of Our Diplomatic Reverse," T. 
E. Rondthaler's "The Orient Comes into its Own," 
and most strikingly in Miss Elizabeth Lay's "Spring 
Behind the Ruins," "The Range Finder" has most 
assuredly found the range. 


The April number of Studies in Philology contains 
the following articles: Hayes Barton by Eden Phil- 
potts; "Your Napkin is too little; let it alone," Sam- 
uel Tannerbanm ; Shakespeare's Income by Alwin 
Thaler; Talus: the Law, Frederick Morgan Padel- 
ford ; Spenser's Fairy Mythology by Edwin Green-

The number constitutes the third number in the 
Series of Elizabethan Studies and comprises 150 


The Yackety Yack for 1918 appeared late in May. 
In modest patriotic dress, the book lives up to the 
high reputation of former publications and gives a 

complete record of the college year. It is dedicated 
to the University men in service, and the military 
features of the campus are especially featured. R. 
C. deRossett is editor-in-chief and E. A. Griffin and 
Walter Feimster are business managers. 


The present session of the Summer School opened 
June 13 with every indication of a successful term 
of six weeks. Four teachers' institutes of ten days 
each will he conducted during this time. 

The registration on June 20 had passed the 500 
mark ami Director Walker thinks the total attend- 
ance will at least be 750, which compares favorably 
with the attendance last year, the abnormal condi- 
tions being taken into consideration. 


A marriage of special interest to Chapel Hill and 
the classes of L916 and 1917 was that of Miss Agnes 
Barton, '17, ami Lieut. John ( ). Dysart, '16, on Fri- 
day night, June 7th, at the Chapel of the Cross. 
Lieut, and Mrs. Dysart left immediately for Camp 
Perry, Ohio, where Lieut. Dysart is stationed with 
the 322d Infantry as an instructor in musketry. 


Press notices of June 13th carried the following 
information: "Cox's Artillery," headed by ex-Judge 
Albert L. Cox, now colonel of the 113th North Caro- 
lina, has landed in France according to a cablegram 
tonight. Many Raleigh boys and North Carolinians 
generally are in that fighting division, and they go 
soon into battle. 


Jack Powell was unanimously elected captain of 
the baseball team for next year. This action of the 
team followed as a result of Powell's good work, 
both as pitcher and leading batter on the team this 
year. He has the hearty support of every man on 
and off the team and with five or six letter men back 
next .year there is no reason why Carolina should 
not go over the top in baseball. 

The Officers' Training Camp of the University 
opened its six weeks term at the Bingham Military 
School in Asheville on June 14th. Captain J. Stuart 
Allen and Professor T. F. Hickerson, of the Univer- 
sity faculty, are in charge. Over one hundred stu- 
dents were present at the end of the first day of reg- 




The honor roll of the University for the past term 
just announced by the registrar shows that in spite 
of a total decrease in students of 14 per cent for the 
academic year as compared with 1916-17 session, and 
the natural detractions arising from the prevailing 
abnormal conditions, scholarship in general has been 
far better than in recent years. 

Sixty-three students from the four academic 
classes by making an average grade of "2" or better 
have placed themselves on the honor roll. This total 
is made up of 16 from the senior class. L5 from the 
junior class, 12 from the sophomore class and 20 
from the freshman class. 

This record by far eclipses any record of previous 
years. Ten students made all "ones". Over 25 
per cent of the senior class made an average grade 
of "2" or better. 

Miss Maud Carson, of Asheboro, and Miss Lonisa 
Reid, of Lowell, tied for honors of leading the senior 
class in scholarship, both making all ""ones". The 
same case applies to J. C. Bynum, of Durham, and 
I. W. Durham, of Charlotte, of the junior class. 
J. L. Cook, id' Winston-Salem, led the sophomore 
class with all "ones". Five men in the freshman 
class by making all "ones" tied for highest honors, 
these being ('. L. G. Ashby, Raleigh; C. D. Burns, 
Asheville; J. G. Tucker, Plymouth; H. A. Patter- 
son, Chapel Hill: and T. .T. Wilson, 3rd, Chapel 


J. Allen Taylor, of Wilmington, today wired Sen- 
ator F. M. Simmons, a solicitous message concerning 
Arthur Bluenthenthal, a former Wilmington citizen, 
who has been reported missing from the aviation 
service in France. Senator Simmons dispatched a 
messenger to the War Deepartment immediately, but 
a search revealed the fact that he was not with the 
American expeditionary forces abroad. 

The telegram from Mr. Taylor stated he was with 
the French Aviation Service, and therefore the De- 
partment of State has been requested to supply in- 
formation as to whether any mishap has occurred to 
the Wilmington citizen. 

Arthur Bluenthenthal has a wide identification in 
North Carolina, especially in football circles. He 
was one of the trio. "Doggie" Trenchard, Bluen- 
thenthal, and Wilson, that started the rejuvenation 
of football material at the University of North Caro- 
lina. He was employed as coach in football, when 
Princeton football tactics were predominant. Bluen- 
thenthal was a graduate of Princeton University, 

and made a fine record as a player on the Tiger team. 
"Doggie" Trenchard had great faith in the football 
tutelage of "Blue" and the two had much in common, 
close set to the ground, stockily built, and a robust 
type of athletes. — S. R. Winters in the News and

check tn the University, and the decision to more than double 
tlir assessment mi each member so that at the next reunion five 
years from now a similar or larger amount could be presented, 
featured the return of the class of 1908 for its tenth year 

When 1008 was called to the rostrum on Alumni Day twenty- 
nine men came forward and used up about seven minutes in 
their exercises. T. Wingate Andrews, of Salisbury, president 
of the class, made a two-minute talk and presented James A. 
Gray, Jr., of Winston-Salem, secretary and treasurer. Mr. 
Gray read statistics showing the present occupations of the 
fifty-five living graduates, and then, requesting President Gra- 
lieiii to come to the platform, handed him a check for $1,000.

marks, expressing his appreciation and that of the University.

erection of the Confederate monument. Besides, many mem 
In is of the class contribute regularly to the Alumni Loyalty 

So far as we know, this is the only class which has regularly 
published an annual bulletin since graduation. The bulletin 
has done much to keep alive interest in each other and in the 
University, and so popular has it proved that, at a business 
meeting of the class Monday night, it was voted unanimously 
to continue its publication. 

The class also voted unanimously to hold another reunion in 
1923, and to ask each member to contribute not less than $5 
a year, so that at the next reunion another check could be 
given to the University. 

In recognition of his fine services in publishing the bulletin 

and in handling the class funds, James A. Gray, Jr., was 
elected president for five years, and M. Robins, of Greensboro, 
w^s elected secretary and treasurer.

for '08 was the graduation of J. H. Coward, of Ayden. Mr.

Dear Old " '17": 

I had hoped to be at our one-year reunion ; but instead I am 
lying in the Mission Hospital with a very badly broken leg, 
and the prospects of spending the summer months on my back. 
The particulars of my good luck — I call it good luck that it 
was no worse — are : A few mornings ago I took a jitney for 
Azalea to begin work there on the government reservation. 
Our car was already tilled, but about half way to Azalea an 
old man asked to get on. There was no place for him except 
to stand on the step at the rear of the ear. I offered him my 
scat and stood on the step myself. Just as we were Hearing 
Azalea, another car ran into us. The old man was saved, but 
it got me. The doctors can 't tell whether my leg can be saved 
so as to give me service. Four inches of bone are gone ; so at 
our five-year reunion I may march in with a regular old-fash- 
ioned wooden leg on. If such be the ease, and I do have a 
wooden leg, there is one consolation, I '11 never be bothered 
with that corn again. 

I am a married man now and don't regret the bargain. My 
little Missourian and I are just as happy as can be. I '11 bring 
my family to our five-year reunion. 

I am so very sorry that I can 't be with you in body, but I '11 
be right there in spirit. It will take many an age to beat 

If any of you have time, write me a line to 7."i Church Street, 
Asheville, X. C. It will do lots of good. This note is written 
in bed. 

Good luck and best wishes.

actually begun. Sand is being piled up for the brick 
work, material is on the way from various parts of 
the country, and contractor, foreman, and workmen 
are on the job. All of which means that the long- 
dreamed of postoffice is to be a reality. The building, 
which is to be placed mi the McMder lot on Franklin 
and Henderson streets facing the main entrance to the 
campus, is to cost $44,500 and is to be completed by 
December first. The plans for the building show an 
eighty foot front, with three double doors, on Frank- 
lin street. In style it harmonizes with the dormitory 

on the opposite side of the street, and when com- 
pleted will be attractive and thoroughly equipped in 
every way.

Credit 1 908 with $ 1 ,000 

At Commencement 1908 planked down $1,000. 

At the same time 1918 pledged $2,500. 

Still others from various classes, before starting overseas, wrote 
Carolina into their wills. 

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

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

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

— Each after his ability and with equal desire! 

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

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

— You think you will never die. 

Perhaps not. But be on the safe side, and say what you want done with what you 
leave . Write your will now; don't wait till you've got your million. Put 
the Alumni Loyalty Fund in for from $100 to $100,000. A holograph will is 
enough. It is as easy as this :" I hereby give and bequeath to the Alumni 

Loyalty Fund of the University of North Carolina the sum of

For six months since he changed his "say," he has led the strenuous life of a civilian man-

This is true whether you may be interested in conserving protection now in force, in
