Volume VII 


Number 2 


Edward Kidder Graham, inspiring teacher, loved 
fellow alumnus, leader undaunted of men, has been 
called from his labors, and his deft hands, devoted 
to the realization of splendidly conceived ideals for 
the University and his native State, are now at rest. 

With the three-fold task at which he wrought in 
the full light of perfect vision, every alumnus is 
familiar: To train the student mind and heart here 
beneath the campus oaks to be 
responsive to the true, the good, 
the beautiful in life and the 
fellowship of the Master Spir- 
it ; to multiply a hundred-fold 
every physical, mental, spirit- 
ual resource of the University 
in a ministry of service to the 
State; and, by so training the 
citizenship of the common- 
wealth and thereby securing 
its greater welfare, to win for 
Alma Mater still greater pow- 
er and fame in the sisterhood 
of educational agencies of the 

With the success which he 
attained in these high under- 
takings every alumnus is also 
familiar. In expressions from 
the student body overwhelmed 
by the loss of their valiant 
commander, in letters from the 
alumni which filter back from 
camp and overseas, in the mes- 
sages and beautiful language of flowers received from 
friend and taught at his death, there is the constant 
swelling refrain that he', with Alma Mater, was the 
giver of ideals by which men directed their lives and 
for which, if need be, gladly laid them down. 

And similarly with the University's ministry to the 
State. In the four years of his leadership the student 
body grew from 900 to 1200, the Summer School at- 
tendance doubled, and through the Debating Union, 
correspondence courses, lectures, publications, and oth- 
er agencies, the greater University was brought near 
in helpfulness to every one who looked to it for aid. 

Likewise the story of the University's place of 
power within the sisterhood of American institutions. 
The directorship by President Graham of the Stu- 
dents' Army Training Corps of the South Atlantic 
States, participation by him in the affairs of the 
Council of National Defense, of the International 
V. M. ('. A. Committee, of the American University 
1 'nic m in Europe, together with expressions from the 
press and educational leaders 
of the nation concerning him 
and the institution over which 
he presided, bespeak the es- 
teem in which the University 
was held, and bear testimony 
to the high destiny to which 
he had brought it and to the 
fact that it was functioning as 
a powerful agency keenly sen- 
sitive to the educational re- 
quirements of the present 

We do not attempt to meas- 
ure here the loss the Univer- 
sity or State sustains in that 
he who was so skilled has left 
his task to other hands. Nor 
do we speak of his radiant 
spirit or of those rare qualities 
of mind or heart by which he 
drew us to him as with cords 
of steel, nor voice our poig- 
nant sorrow at his going. Our 
anguish is too deep for words 
or tears. We receive it as a tender sacrament too 
full of hidden meaning to be understood, grateful 
that for awhile it was ours to walk in joyful fellow- 
ship with him along life's way and that the splen- 
did task to which he called us one and all is yet to 
be brought to full accomplishment. 

Upon lis, student body, alumni, faculty, trustees, 
the responsibility of reaching this high "objective" 
set for Alma Mater falls. Today, and in the com- 
ing days of greater opportunity for still larger ser- 
vice to the yoiith, the State, the nation, it is our 
high privilege to "carry on." 




Committees from the faculty and Trustees have 

been appointed to arrange a memorial service at some 

early date in honor of President Gra- 
PROPOSED , T , . , , , j ., ., 

mfwortai s ham. It is also contemplated that the 

University will issue during the year 

a memorial volume containing a biographical sketch 

of President Graham, together with the memorial 

addresses and messages received by the University 

and members of his family at his death and tributes 

and editorial comment appearing in the State and 

national press. Copies of the publication will be 

placed in the leading colleges and libraries of the 


In addition to these memorials, suggestions have 
been received by The Review from many sources 
looking toward two further significant memorials. Of 
these, the first is that the University should also pub- 
lish a volume of President Graham's essays, ad- 
dresses, and public papers with an appropriate intro- 
duction, in an attractive single volume. Mr. Gra- 
ham's progressive constructive philosophy of life, 
and of education in particular, is such a valuable 
contribution that it should be made available for as 
wide a circle of readers as possible. This volume 
should also be placed in the libraries and colleges in- 
dicated above. 

The second suggestion is that a students' building 
or students' union should be erected upon the campus 
through funds secured from the alumni and friends 
to be known as the Graham Union. It is the sort of 
memorial which would be in complete harmony with 
his ideals for student life, and would afford all of his 
friends the opportunity to express the esteem and 
affection in which they held him. 

Both suggestions have been so acceptable to the 
University community and Trustees that committees 
have been appointed to consider the matter fully, 
and in the next issue of The Review it is expected 
that an outline of the plans of procedure will be

At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the 

Hoard of Trustees held Thursday, October 31st, in 

Raleigh, Professor M. H. Stacy, 

DEAN STACY , , (f ^ Con of Liberal A rts, 


FACULTY was appointed Chairman of the 

Faculty with power to perform the 
duties of the office of president of the University, 
made vacanl by the death of President Graham. 

Dean Stacy is a graduate of the University of the 

class of 1902 and spent a year in graduate study at 
Cornell University in 1905-06. He has been a mem- 
ber of the faculty since his graduation, having filled 
in succession the positions of instructor in Mathe- 
matics, associate professor of Civil Engineering, and 
professor of Civil Engineering. In 1913-14, during 
the absence of President Venable, in Europe, he was 
appointed acting dean of the College of Liberal Arts 
under Acting President Graham, and upon the elec- 
tion of President Graham in 1914, was appointed 
dean, which position he was holding at the time of 
President Graham's death. 

By his appointment as Chairman of the Faculty 
at this time, the University is assured of the ser- 
vices of a leader thoroughly familiar with the work 
of the institution and who enjoys to the full the con- 
fidence and hearty co-operation of his colleagues, the 
student body, the alumni, and the people of the State 
in general. 


The University has just passed through an epi- 
demic easily the most dangerous it has ever experi- 
enced and which before its passing- 
took four lives as its toll from the 
campus and two from the ranks of 
those who ministered to the stricken at the Infirm- 
ary out of a total of more than 300 cases, 18 of which 
were followed by pneumonia. 

Throughout its duration physicians, nurses, med- 
ical students, stretcher-bearers , ambulance drivers, 
and all who participated in the vigils and ministra- 
tions, proved themselves spirits undaunted, ready to 
go over the top singing against the hidden foe. 

We do not inscribe the names of Mrs. W. J. 
Hannah and Miss Bessie Roper in the Roll of Hon- 
or appearing elsewhere, but we place them at the 
top of a new fair page in Alma Mater's memory. The 
one, with mother love, gave her life that her son 
might live. The other, voluntarily leaving her shel- 
tered station, with nothing at stake save fidelity to 
her calling and ideals of service, proved anew the 
paradox of life, that by losing it we gain it. 


Through the purchase of the Stephen B. Weeks col- 
lection of North Caroliniana, a description of which 
appears on another page, the Univer- 
sity has come into the possession of 



the most distinctive collection in that 
Held to be found in the United States and a collection 
which, when compared with similar collections of ma- 



terial relating to other states, easily takes rank among 
the most notable. 

In its entirety, the collection comprises some 10,- 
000 titles, and is especially rich in biographical, his- 
torical, and legislative publications. It contains quite 
a number of extremely important early newspaper 
files, early maps and more than half of the one hun- 
dred titles published in North Carolina from the be- 
ginning of printing in the State (1749) to 1800. 
Four manuscript collections are included in the ac- 
quisition, and the very important manuscript biblio- 
graphy of North Caroliniana which Dr. Weeks was 
compiling at the time of his death. 

The acquisition of the collection has great signifi- 
cance for North Carolina. It will make possible the 
investigation of many subjects of State interest hith- 
erto impossible, and will furnish material for an im- 
portant series of studies in the social, economic, his- 
torical, and literary activities of the State. In view 
of the further facts that the history of North ( 'arolina, 
Virginia, and South Carolina is closely related, that 
Tennessee is a daughter State, that North Carolina 
' furnished many leaders in the development of the 
States immediately west and south, and that the Uni- 
versity already has an unusually complete collection 
of literary and historical journals and publications 
of the old South and the Confederacy, the collection 
is at once extremely valuable as a source of material 
for the entire South. 


The indulgence of the alumni is requested if we 
again present in these columns the matter of the 
support of The Review. Every- 
one is aware of the very greatly 
increased difficulties under which 
all publications are being issued at the present time, 
and of the especial difficulties under which alumni 
publications are being issued. The Review is no 
exception in this particular and it is in need of the 
hearty co-operation of every alumnus. 

The request which it makes at this time is that 
every subscriber who has not sent in his renewal to 
date do so immediately and thereby save us the ex-- 
pense of fully $100 which it will cost us to send 
statements. There are also approximately 400 sub- 
scribers who are in arrears for the year 1917-18. It 
is very important that every subscription be brought 
up to date if we are to maintain the present stand- 
ards of TnE Review. It is with regret that we have 
been forced to stop the subscriptions, with the last 
issue, of 400 alumni who were in arrears for two 
years or more. It is simply impossible to continue 


to carry these subscriptions, and, in addition, it is 
no longer legalized by the War Industries Board. 

While we are urgent in this matter, we are also 
deeply appreciative of the very generous response 
which many alumni made in not only renewing their 
own subscriptions, but especially in making possible 
the sending of The Review to men in the service. 
As a result of contributions of this nature, more than 
100 copies of this issue are going overseas, and will 
be tremendously welcomed by Carolina men to whom 
they are sent. 


At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the 
Trustees in Raleigh on October 31, Dr. H. W. Chase, 
Professor of Psychology and member of the School 
of Education, was appointed acting dean of the Col- 
lege of Liberal Arts in the place of Dean Stacy, who 
at the same time was made chairman of the faculty 
of the University. 

The Executive Committee also granted leave of 
absence to Dr. J. G. deR. Hamilton, head of the De- 
partment of History, to become regional director of 
the War Issues Course of the Students' Army Train- 
ing Corps, and authorized Professor P. H. Daggett 
temporarily to assume the duties of regional director 
in President Graham's place. 


The State Board of Health announces the estab- 
lishment of a Bureau of Social Hygiene as an addi- 
tional means for service to the people of North 
Carolina in promoting and further protecting the 
public health. 

Dr. James A. Keiger, Acting Assistant Surgeon 
of the United States Public Health Service, has been 
assigned to the State as director of the new bureau. 
Dr. Keiger is a graduate of the University and of 
the University of Virginia, and has had valuable 
experience in the line of work which will be under- 
taken in this State. 

The four S. A. T. C. companies of the University 
subscribed to a total of $25,000- in the Fourth Lib- 
erty Loan campaign. The campaign was carried 
on under the direction of Lieutenants M. T. Mc- 
Cowan, R. A. Roberts, and H. B. Limbaugh. The 
subscriptions of the non-S. A. T. C. students amount- 
ed tn $2,500, secured through the efforts of Adjutant 
Whitfield, making a total subscription of $27,500 
for the five military companies. 




Edward Kidder Graham, seventh president of the 
University, died at his home in Chapel Hill at 
8:15 Saturday, October 26th, after a brief illness 
of influenza followed by pneumonia. Although the 
serious nature of his condition was known by the 
University community, no one was prepared for 
the sudden ending of his brilliant career, which left 
the village, faculty, and student body overwhelmed 
with grief and brought the sense of keen personal 
loss to thousands of alumni and friends throughout 
the nation. 

To sons of the University no telling of the story 
of his fruitful life of forty-two years is necessary 
save for the sake of refreshing the memory as to its 
many distinctive characteristics, and of making per- 
manent the record of a life at once the inspiration of 
countless students and associates and an honor to the 
Alma Mater that sent him forth on his high mission. 

Edward Kidder Graham, son of Archibald and 
Eliza Owen (Barry) Graham, was born in Char- 
lotte on Oct. 11, 1876. At the age of seven he enter- 
ed the city public schools, where he remained for ten 
years and from which he entered Carolina Military 
Institute. At the age of 18, he entered the Univer- 
sity, graduating in 1898 as second man in his class. 

College Career was Distinctive 

His college career was well rounded and dis- 
tinctive. The Dialectic Society selected him as an 
intersociety debater, and in 1898, he and W. J. Brog- 
den, of the Philanthropic Society, against Georgia, 
won for Carolina the first of the long list of vic- 
tories which has made the University's record in in- 
tercollegiate debate notable. Similarly the So- 
cieties and the Athletic Association placed him in 
the first position on the editorial boards of the 
Magazine and The Tar Heel. His fraternity, the 
S. A. E., followed him as leader, and the Order of 
the Gorgon's Head included him in its list of charter 
members. In class work he received the honor of 
the secretaryship of Alpha Theta Phi, a local schol- 
arship society which later has been absorbed in the 
Phi Beta Kappa, and at commencement in 1898 he 
won the senior honor, the Mangum Medal. 

Chose Teaching as Profession 

Teaching was the choice of his life's work. He 
taught the year following his graduation in a pri- 
vate school in Charlotte. In September, 1899, he re- 
turned to the University, where he remained in 
continuous service with the exception of two years 
which he spent in graduate study at Columbia Uni- 

versity from which he received the degree of M. A., 
in 1902. His career in the faculty has been: li- 
brarian, 1899-1900; instructor in English, 1900- 
1902; associate professor of English, 1902-1904; 
professor of English, 1904-1913; dean of the Col- 
lege of Liberal Arts, 1909-1913 ; acting president, 
1913-1914; president since 1914. 

Ideals Cherished for the University 

Coming to the presidency of the University in 
1914 upon the unanimous vote of the Board of 
Trustees and with the full confidence of the stu- 
dent body, faculty, alumni and State, President 
Graham devoted himself completely to the realiza- 
tion of the ideals which he cherished for his Alma 
Mater: That she should be the inspirer of her sons; 
that she should be the helpful servant of every citi- 
zen of North Carolina ; that she should attain to a 
distinctive position of honor and power in the sis- 
terhood of American universities. 

The University Goes Forward 

While the chapter of his achievement as the direc- 
tor of the University was scarcely begun, certain 
facts recorded in it stand out significantly. Student 
morale reached new altitudes under his inspirational 
leadership. Campus honor permeated more deeply 
every student activity, exhibiting itself at its best in 
the intercollegiate contests of 1916-17. And when 
the call to arms was sounded in May, 1917, the stu- 
dent body though despising war in and of itself, 
rushed to the front to die if need be for the ideals 
made clear and strong within the campus walls. 

Similarly, the University's reach, its ministry to 
the State, was rapidly extended. In the four-year 
period the student body grew in numbers from 900 
to 1200, the Summer School attendance from 500 to 
1050, and through correspondence courses, lectures, 
the High School Debating Union, study centers, post 
graduate courses in medicine, newspaper and road 
institutes, the News Letter, and other publications, 
the University daily added to the list of those to 
whom it rendered service. 

Together with this enlargement of service, came 
increased resources with which to carry it on. The 
General Assembly of 1915 increased the appropria- 
tion for maintenance from $95,000 to $115,000 and 
again in 1917 to $165,000. At the same time it pro- 
vided a building fund of $100,000 annually for five 
years. Outside the General Assembly the desire to 
assist exhibited itself in additional ways. The Weil 
Lectureship in American Citizenship was establish- 



cd. The Hill Collection of North Caroliniana was 
placed on a permanent basis, the Alumni Loyalty 
Fund was begun, the Hewett Loan Fund was added 
to the list of other loan funds, and the Kenan be- 
quest, yielding $75,000 annually, was received, mak- 
ing possible the strengthening of the faculty and the 
further equipment of the University for finer work. 

A corresponding growth of influence was experi- 
enced by the University in its relations with other 
American colleges and Universities. Its scholarly 
journals, such as the Journal of the Elisha Mitchell 
Scientific Society, Studies in Philology, and The 
Sprunt Historical Monographs, gained in distinctive 
content. The High School Journal succeeded the 
High School Bulletin in wider service to secondary 
schools, while along with these the News Letter, the 
Extension Bulletins and Leaflets found their way 
into the libraries and colleges of the country and 
called forth frequent appreciation from the State 
and national press. 

Touched Life at Many Points 

During his connection with the University, Presi- 
dent Graham participated in varied movements and 
was the recipient of many honors. He was a mem- 
ber of State and National Educational Associations ; 
was president of the State Literary and Historical 
Association in 1911-12, and of the North Carolina 
Social Service Conference in 1016. He was fre- 
quently in demand as a speaker and contributor to 
educational and literary publications. Among his 
publications the most distinctive were his report to 
the Board of Trustees in 1916 in which he presented 
a broad educational program for North Carolina, and 
his inaugural address in which he set forth with a 
clarity and completeness that won wide acceptance, 
the function of the modern state university. 

In 1914 the University of the South, at Sewanee, 
conferred upon him the honorary degree of D. C. L., 
while in the same year from Erskine College, and 
the following year from Wake Forest and Lafayette 
colleges, he received the degree of LL. D. In 1918 
he was invited to deliver the baccalaureate address 
at Johns Hopkins, an engagement which he was un- 
able to fill on account of illness. At the time of his 
death he was serving with distinguished ability as 
Regional Director of the Students' Army Training 
Corps of the South Atlantic States ; as a member of 
the Educational Committee of the Council of Na- 
tional Defense; as a member of the International 
Committee of the Y. M. C. A., and as a trustee of 
the American University Union in Europe. 
Married Miss Susan Williams Moses 

On June 25, 1908, Mr. Graham was married to 

Miss Susan Williams Moses, of Raleigh, whose ear- 
lier career as a student in the University and beau- 
tiful home life in the community after her marriage 
is one of Chapel Hill's most precious memories. Her 
death occurred on December 22, 1916, she being sur- 
vived by her husband and their only son, Edward 
Kidder Graham, Jr., now aged seven. 

Funeral Conducted at Chapel Hill 

The funeral of President Graham was held at 2 
o'clock Monday afternoon, October 28th, interment 
being in the local cemetery. The services, in com- 
plete harmony with the life which had passed, were 
conducted at the grave by Dr. W. D. Moss, pastor of 
the Presbyterian church, of which President Graham 
was a life-long member. The affection and high 
esteem in which he was held were evidenced by the 
presence of hundreds of friends, former students and 
alumni within and without the State, by telegrams 
and messages to members of the family and the Uni- 
versity faculty from every part of the country, and 
by a profusion of floral designs and autumn flowers 
of unimagined beauty. 

The following active and honorary pallbearers 
were present : Honorary — Governor Thomas W. 
Bickett, Dr. J. Y. Joyner, Dr. Kemp P. Battle, 
Dr. F. P. Venable, Mayor W. S. Roberson, Profes- 
sor M. C. S. Noble, Professor H. H. Williams, Pro- 
fessor W. D. Toy, Major William Cain, George 
Pickard, W. N. Everett; Active — Dr. W. D. Mc- 
Nider, R. D. W. Connor, Dean M. H. Stacy, Profes- 
sor A. H. Patterson, Dr. L. R. Wilson, Dr. J. G. 
deR. Hamilton, Dr. Archibald Henderson, Charles 
T. Woollen. 

In the funeral procession leading to the cemetery 
were the military guard of honor of 40 men, led by 
Captain C. C. Helmer, Commandant at the Univer- 
sity; Trustees of the University, representatives of 
other colleges and schools, directors and command- 
ants of the S. A. T. C. college units in the State, 
the Faculty of the University, the alumni and other 
visitors and the student battalion. 

The following out-of-town members and connec- 
tions of the family were present: Archibald Graham, 
Archibald Graham, Jr., Prof. Alexander Graham, of 
Charlotte; Miss Mary O. Graham and Mrs. T. W. 
Bickett, of Raleigh; Mrs. Tucker Brown, of Vir- 
ginia ; Miss Anna Graham and John Graham, of 
Warrenton; Lieut. Frank Graham, of the U. S. Ma- 
rines ; Mrs. Josephus Daniels and Miss Mary Moses, 
of Washington, D. C. ; Miss Carrie Moses of Ral- 
eigh ; Misses Mildred and Elizabeth Moses, of Chapel 
Hill; Miss Sarah Kirby, of New York; Kemp D. 
Battle and F. E. Winslow, of Rocky Mount. 




University Day Went Uncelebrated on Account of Epidemic Situation 

Contrary to all previous precedents, no celebration 
of the 125 th anniversary of the University was held 
on October 12th. The classes did not form in front 
of the Alumni Building. The band was silent. Ko- 
dakers did not appear. The long column did not file 
past New West and lose itself in the vastness of 
Memorial (now Armory) Hall. The influenza epi- 
demic upon the campus forbade public assemblages. 

But in the hearts of Carolina men everywhere 
there was a renewal of devotion to the mother that 
sent them forth on their life tasks, as evidenced by 
the following letters and telegrams addressed to 
President Graham : 

Headquarters, 156 Field Artillery, 
Brigade, American Expeditionary 
Forces, "Somewhere in France,"

Members of the Students' Army Training Corps Are Formally Inducted 

"I pledge my allegiance to my flag and the re- 
public for which it stands ; one nation, indivisible, 
with liberty and justice for all." In these solemn 
words, repeated after President Graham at the flag 
pole on the campus, 650 University students were 
formally inducted in an impressive ceremony into 
the Students' Army Training Corps at noon, Octo- 
ber first. At the same moment throughout the en- 
tire nation 150,000 representatives of 500 Ameri- 
can colleges similarly dedicated themselves to the 
services of the government in its fight to make the 
world a safe place in which to live. 

President Graham Speaks 

The formal exercises were begun with an invoca- 
tion by Rev. Euclid McWhorter, followed by the 
"Star Spangled Banner". In inducting the students 
into the Students' Army Training Corps President 
Graham spoke as follows : 

"We are met today to re-assert in a spirit of high 
and solemn consecration our active faith in the prin- 
ciples of freedom, justice and equality, on which this 
nation was founded, and out of which it has grown 
in beauty and strength to its present power. 

"We mean to say here today, as our fathers said — 
and as the wholesome heroic heart of men will al- 
ways say — that there are certain rights of liberty 
and life inalienable for men everywhere; and that 
whenever the vital growth of these rights is menaced 
we will be quick to defend them as a heritage more 
precious than life itself. 

"We are happy today as we accept the sword of 
defense of these ancient and eternal principles ; and 
more for the opportunity of a wider and deeper in- 
terpretation of them, that makes our present cause 
the equal cause of the liberal brotherhood of all 
good men everywhere, and makes the cause of our 
country the common cause of a free mankind. 

"It is fanciful to think that the heroes of freedom 
whose stories we have studied here — of Thermoplae, 
of Runny mede, of Bunker Hill and the rest — give to 
us, in the beauty of this quiet spot, their benediction, 
as we take from their hands the torch of the eternal 
task, and 'carry on' to a new and greater victory. 

"The spirit of this campus, the spirit of our State 
and our country, the spirit of the world today, assure 
to us the continuing courage and complete devotion 
that will bring to a glorious fulfilment the noblest ad- 
venture that ever called to the aspiring spirit of 

President Wilson's Message Read 

In the message from President Wilson, the stu- 
dents were appraised of the significance of the step 
which they had taken. President Wilson declared : 

"You have ceased to be merely individuals, each 
seeking to perfect himself to win his own place in 
the world, and have become comrades in the common 
cause of making the world a better place to live in. 
You have joined yourselves with the entire man- 
hood of the country and pledged as did your fore- 
fathers, your lives, your fortunes and your sacred 
honor to the freedom of humanity. 

"The enterprise upon which you have embarked is 
a hazardous and difficult one. This is not a war of 
words; this is not a scholastic struggle. It is a war 
of ideals, yet fought with all the devices of science 
and with the power of machines. To succeed you 
must not only be inspired by the ideals for which 
this country stands, but you must also be masters of 
the technique with which the battle is fought. You 
must not only be thrilled with zeal for the common 
welfare, but you must also be masters of the weapons 
of today. 

"There can be no doubt of the issue. The spirit 
that is revealed and the manner in which America 
has responded to the call is indomitable. I have no 
doubt that you, too, will use your utmost strength to 



maintain that spirit and to carry it forward to that diet Crowell, acting secretary of war. At the con- 
victory that will certainly be ours." elusion of the exercises the Corps was reviewed from 
Battalion Is Reviewed the steps of the Alumni Building by President Gra- 
Other messages were read from Peyton C. Marsh, ham, Major Towner, Colonel Stevens, and mem- 
chief of staff of the United States Army, and Bene- bers of his staff. 


In Spite of Influenza Epidemic Military Instruction Has Made Rapid Progress 

The history of the Students' Army Training Corps 
at the University to date has been one of distinct 
progress and the military organization as a whole 
has made rapid headway in spite of the epidemic. 
The men have had a definite aim in view, that of 
becoming officers, and their fine co-operative spirit 
displayed in the classroom, on the drill field, and in 
the barracks all give visible evidence that the student- 
soldiers are decidedly in earnest. 

Mastering Fundamentals 

The S. A. T. C. unit is composed of four com- 
panies of approximately 100 men each, and when 
arrayed in battalion formation presents a formidable 
front. Each company is under the direct charge of 
two lieutenants. Thus far, besides mastering the 
fundamental principles, the students have engaged 

in close order drill in squad, platoon, and company 
formations for the most part. Interesting games, 
setting up exercises and frequent hikes, which are 
staged regularly, have served not only to break the 
monotony of the drill field but also to put the men 
in excellent physical condition. 

Personnel of Military Faculty 
Lieut. -Col. G. W. S. Stevens, Commandant in 
Charge since the early summer, has been relieved 
by the War Department, and Capt. Chas. C. Helmer, 
a native of Iowa, a graduate of his State university, 
and a veteran of the Spanish-American War, is now 
in charge of the Post. Other members of the mili- 
tary faculty include Capt. J. Stuart Allen, Director 
of Military Tactics at the University last year; 
Adjutant J. V. Whitfield, also of last year's military

D. G. Lambert, Raymond Martin, Andrew Bell, H. 
B. Limbaugh, John II. Winslow, C. W. Robinson, 
P. M. Allison, R. A. Roberts, C. A. Joyce, and Ser- 
geant J. S. Stump. Major ( '. Towner, Military In- 
spector for the South Atlantic States, and four lieu- 
tenants assisting, were until recently making the Uni- 
versity headquarters while inspecting S. A. T. C. 
units in this district. S. A. T. C. headquarters for 
the district are now located in Raleigh. 
Marine and Navy Units Added 

The members of Marine and Navy sections of the 
S. A. T. C. are now quartered in Barracks 7, the 
Battle-Vance-Pettigrew buildings. First Lieut. R. 
F. Boyd, of the Marine Corps, assisted by Sergeant 
J. S. Stump, is in charge. The two sections are com- 
bined into one company and drill together. Ensigns 
W. J. Skelton and F. W. Rice and assistants, of the 
Navy Mobilization Station at Raleigh, make fre- 
quent trips to the Hill to inspect the Naval Unit. 
Captain Allen Directs Non S. A. T. C.'s 

The Non-S. A. T. C. students, that is, those taking- 
drill but ineligible for the S. A. T. C. either on ac- 
count of age or physical disabilities, although per- 
mitted to room out in town, are under practically 

the same rules and regulations as the S. A. T. C. men. 
Captain Allen, assisted by Adjutant Whitfield, Pro- 
fessor J. M. Booker, and student Captain S. C. 
Ogburn, is in charge of the non-S. A, T. C. company. 
They arc using the old class field for drill grounds. 
Of the 135 men in the company, 40 or 50 per cent 
have had previous military experience. The com- 
pany will use the old system of trenches of last year. 
Several men awaiting induction into the service are 
also taking drill with the Non-S. A. T. C. group. 
Where Men Are Quartered 

The dormitories now go under the name of bar- 
racks with the headquarters of each company in each 
of the four barracks. The companies have been as- 
signed to the barracks as follows: Co. A, Barracks 2, 
Old East ; Co. B, Barracks 3, South ; Co. C, Bar- 
racks H, South; Co. D, Barracks 7, Battle-Vance- 
Pettigrew. Four or more men are quartered in each 
room. Inspection of quarters is made at least once 
each day. All students belonging to the S. A. T. C. 
arc quartered in the barracks and are fed at Swain 
Hall, now called the Mess Hall — all other students 
room and get their meals off the campus. 
Men Under Strict Quarantine 

With the campus under quarantine since about 

Captain Helmer (center bottom row) an t d Members of Military Staff 



October first the soldier boys have seen little liberty. 
On Saturday afternoons part of the men not having 
demerits are given leaves to go off the campus, not 
out of town, however. 

Regular Camp Schedule Followed 

The daily routine of the campus virtually cor- 
responds to that of a government camp and keeps the 
men busy from 6 A. M. when awakened by reveille 
until 10 P. M. when taps are sounded. Breakfast at 
6 :30 is followed by physical exercises. Class work 
begins at 8:00 and continues through 12:15. Fol- 
lowing the dinner hour, 12 :30 to 1 :30, class work is 
again resumed, except on Saturdays when military 
instruction is given. The period from 2 :35 to 3 :35 
alternates between academic work and military in- 
struction, the time being divided equally between the 
two. Retreat is sounded at 6 :00 ; study call at 7 :30, 
and taps at 10 :00. 

During the epidemic the students doing hospital 
duty, driving ambulance trucks, carrying stretchers, 
each at their turn, rendered invaluable assistance 
to their stricken comrades. The work of the second 
year medical students, whose timely assistance was 
largely instrumental in checking the ravages of the 
disease, also deserves commendation. 

Military Police Active 

The streets of Chapel Hill are now patrolled by 
military police whose duty it is to see that (inly stu- 
dents who have passes go off the campus. Each stu- 
dent serves in this capacity in turn. Such scenes 
present unfamiliar sights to alumni returning to the 
Hill. • The task of feeding the University battalion 
in Swain Hall in a few minutes is easily admin- 
istered by the kitchen police. Each student also 
serves in this capacity in turn. 

Post Exchange Established 

Among other things tending to give the Univer- 
sity the atmosphere of a real army camp is the estab- 
lishment of a Post Exchange in what was formerly 
the dining hall of the University Inn, where every- 
thing for the soldier will be kept and sold at the 
lowest possible price. The profits will be divided 
among the companies. 

Y. M. C. A. Provides Entertainment 

The student life and activities committee of the 
University is co-operating with the Army "Y" to pro- 
vide entertainment for the students. Plans are un- 
derway to show war films, to give public lectures and 
readings by faculty members, to assist in stimulat- 
ing interest in company singing which has been 
started by the company captains, and to increase the 

facilities of the Y. M. C. A., particularly its floor 

The custom of asking the soldiers to Sunday din- 
ners, which is followed in cities where regular army 
camps are located, will be followed here, the faculty 
and townspeople co-operating in that direction. 

The co-eds are also taking a large part in the 
Y. M. C. A. program of entertaining the soldiers.

In spite of the internal revolution incident to the 
establishmnt of an S. A. T. C. at the University, 
the Bureau of Extension is preparing to carry on its 
state-wide educational activities as vigorously as 

The policy announced last year of extending the 
arm of the University to as many communities as 
possible through lecture courses designed to instruct 
the public on the vital problems of the present day 
is meeting with an enthusiastic welcome in the state, 
and arrangements have already been made in Win- 
ston-Salem, High Point, Raleigh, and Salisbury for 
the formation of community centers to co-operate 
with the University in its program of popular edu- 

A somewhat different application of the extension 
idea has been adopted in Greensboro, where the State 
Normal School has arranged with the University for 
a series of eighteen lectures dealing with the histor- 
ical and economic causes of the war and govern- 
ments, philosophies and ideals of the opposing na- 
tions. These lectures will probably be presented as 
a regular part of the program of instruction at the 
Normal School, and the Syllabus provided for the 
War Issues Course at the University will be made 
use of. 

Lectures on similar topics will be given before 
various organizations which are following the pro- 
gram of study drawn up by the Extension Depart- 
ment for the use of Women's Clubs. The clubs at 
Goldsboro. New Bern, and Kinston have already 
made application for University assistance and lec- 

turers will be sent to these communities as soon as 
the influenza situation admits it. A new feature in 
this year's plan is the establishment of a series of 
lectures especially designed for use in the public 
schools, on the activities of the American Army and 
Navy, illustrated by lantern slides published by the 
Committee on Public Information.

Football, which was dropped from the athletic 
schedule last year, has been reinstated, and Marvin 
L. Ritch, of Charlotte, a former Carolina and 
Georgetown star, playing half and full back at the 
University in 1910 and center in 1911 and center 
and emergency guard tackle at Georgetown in 1912, 
where he received his LL. B. degree in 1914, is 
coaching the team. Since 1914 Coach Eitch has 
been practicing law in Charlotte. 

Between 40 and 50 men are contesting for po- 
sitions on the squad in the daily practices. While 
there are no letter men to serve as a nucleus, many 
men of last year's freshman team are back. The 
new material on hand shows up well. 

The opening game with Wake Forest on Novem- 
ber 2nd, resulting in a 13 to 7 victory for Carolina, 
showed the squad to be in good condition after only 
two weeks practice. 

In the game with Camp Greene on Nov. 9 Caro- 
lina won 52-13. 

Following are the most promising players thus 
far showing up: Brown, Nichols, McQueen, Carter, 
Kernodl, Widenhouse, Powell, Pharr, Lowe, Gant, 
McNeely, Herty, Fearrington, Sims, Holt, Gibson, 
Bristol, White, Harden, Eaton, and Montcastle. 

The University enrollment for this year (includ- 
ing students in the Summer School studying for de- 
grees) had totaled 1128 on November 5th, which by 
way of comparison shows more students in attend- 
ance than were registered during the whole of last 
year. Eecent war orders considerably modifying the 
educational entrance requirements for membership 
in the S. A. T. C. are expected to bring in many 
new students. The above figures show an increase 
of 82 over last year's enrollment and a decrease of ■ 
122 as compared to the attendance during the 1916- 
17 session. 

The Medical School enrollment of 53 is only four 
below last year's, 24 of these being first year and 29 
second year men. 

The Pharmacy School has an enrollment of 24, an 
increase of two over 1917-18. 

The Law School has only 11 members, six of these 
being women students. This drop of 21 from last 
year's class is accounted for by the fact that a great 
number of men who would ordinarily take the regu- 
lar law course are taking military law instead. 

The Co-ed roll shows a decided increase over pre- 
ceding years. In comparison with 24 of last year 
the co-eds number 32 and are represented in every 
phase of college work. 

The Science, Engineering, Chemical and kindred 
subjects are being studied this year more than ever 
before, due to the imperative government need of 
highly trained men. 


Eesolved, That the Government of the United 
States should adopt a policy requiring one year of 
military training of all able-bodied men before they 
reach the age of 21, is the query selected for the 
High School Debating Union this year. 

War conditions make it necessary to modify some- 
what the method of procedure in recent years. The 
change is characteristized by two' distinct features. In 
the first place, there will be two preliminaries held 
throughout the State previous to the contest at 
Chapel Hill. In the second place, the semi-final con- 
tests at the University will be conducted as debates, 
i. e., an affirmative team meeting a negative team 
with a chance for rebuttal. In this way it is thought 
the spirit of debate can be kept all through the con- 

Dr. L. A. Williams succeeds Mr. E. R. Rankin, 
now in service, as Secretary of the Debating Union.

Practically all organizations, such as the literary 
societies, fraternities, and clubs, will continue this 
year on a war-time basis, according to present plans, 
although their activities will necessarily be consid- 
erably curtailed. 

The literary societies have held meetings, in- 
stalled new officers, initiated new members and dis- 
played noticeable zest and enthusiasm in beginning 
the work of the new year. At regular intervals dur- 
ing the year the speech making program will be set 
aside and lighter forms of entertainment introduced. 
This innovation is being made because of the hard 
routine work and strict discipline experienced by the 

The Magazine will be dropped by the societies this 
year. This step is being taken after a careful sur- 
vey of the situation, and its publication will be re- 
sumed just as early as conditions permit. 


Thirty-two women are registered in the Univer- 
sity this year, which surpasses all former enroll- 
ments. Last year the twenty-four co-eds organized 
themselves into a Woman's Association, with Mrs. 
Thomas Lingle as special advisor. The organization 
will continue this year with the following officers : 
Miss Elizabeth Lay, of Raleigh, president ; Miss 
Louisa Reed, of Gastonia, vice-president ; Miss Wil- 
lard Goforth, of Lenoir, secretary; and Miss Nell 
Pickard, of Chapel Hill, treasurer. 

Last year the Association not only served the so- 
cial purpose of its members but demonstrated its true 
worth as a part of the University by co-operating 
with many other organizations on the campus and in 
the State. Women are now taking an active part in 
practically all student activities. 

This year the Association plans for a wider field 
of service. Among other things the co-eds are serv- 
ing the Y. M. C. A. canteen, the Red Cross, and 
planning for entertainment for the soldiers.

The following excerpts from the innumerable let- 
ters and messages from educators and friends to 
members of President Graham's family and the fac- 
ulty, and editorials from the press, evidence the very 
great affection and esteem in which President Gra- 
ham was held throughout the State and Nation : 
Resolutions of the Faculty 

The Faculty of the University of North Carolina 
has with sorrow recorded in its Journal the death of 
President Edward Kidder Graham. 

In his brief term of service he created in the Uni- 
versity vital forces which extended beyond the lim- 
its of the campus to every section of the State, and 
which made his career as an educator a brilliant 
epoch in the history of the University. 

His ideal in life was service, first for his Univer- 
sity and his State, and then, when the opportunity 
arose, for the nation. In his progress towards this 
ideal he was guided by a clearness of vision which 
revealed to him the splendid possibilities of life de- 
voted to high and noble aims. 

It was clearly understood by all who came within 
the sphere of his influence that he thought only in 
the terms of the high, of the good, of the great. And 
yet, conscious as he must have been of the shortcom- 
ings of humanity, he never failed to show his kindly 
interest and a compelling sympathy which gained for 
him the ready co-operation of all. 

In the present crisis of the nation he recognized 
at once the duty and attitude of the higher institu- 
tions of learning. It was his own theme of service 
for the world. Quietly and without ostentation he 

laid his plans for our university. But the wisdom of 
his measures was soon widely recognized, and the 
Government of the United States sought his aid and 
counsel in training the young men of the colleges for 
the service of their country. 

In the hour of need the Faculty of the University 
has lost a leader and a friend. In its own sorrow it 
offers to those upon whom the burden of grief bears 
most heavily its respectful sympathy, with the 
prayer that Heaven may grant them its tenderest 
blessinos.— F. P. Venable, Wm. Cain, H. H. Wil- 
liams, M. C. S. Noble, W. D. Toy. 

I have heard with the deepest sorrow of the death 
of Dr. Graham. I counted him among my valued 
personal friends not only, but I know how great a 
service he was rendering the University and the 
State and how sadly he will be missed. By gift and 
character alike be was qualified to play a distin- 
guished part and was playing it to the admiration of 
all who knew him. With the warmest sympathy, 
Cordially and sincerely yours — Woodrow Wilson. 

I loved him like a brother. I think he was the most 
useful man in North Carolina and we could possibly 
spare any man in the state rather than him. We 
have nobody to fill his place. He was a man of clear 
vision, had the confidence of the entire state and 
was truly representative of the best spirit of North 
Carolina. I have known all presidents of the State 
University since 1875. He was the youngest man 
elected to the presidency of that great institution and 
bore not only a state but a national reputation as an 
educator, counselor and great citizen. I deeply de- 
plore his death, which means an irreparable loss to 
the educational system of my state and to the country 
as a whole. — Josephus Daniels. 

Word of the death of President Graham distresses 
me beyond words. President Graham was a man of 
great distinction and talent. He was one of the 
South's most foremost educators. I have known him 
intimately for a long time and highly valued his per- 
sonal friendship. One of the greatest of the young 
educators produced by Dixie has passed and I am 
sincerely grieved. His death is a lamentable loss not 
only to the University and the State which he served 
but to the entire country's educational system. — 
Newton D. Baker. 

There was no man in the State that we could so 
ill afford to have lost as Dr. Graham. There is no 
man in the State whose place it would be so hard to 
fill. The whole State feels that it has suffered an 
irreparable loss. — T. W. Bickett. 

Owing to absence from Washington, have just 
heard President's Graham death. Please convey my 
c( indolence to his family. His loss is a most severe 
blow to the student army and to the cause of educa- 
tion. — President Maclaurin, of the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology. 



The death of President Graham deeply grieves and 
shocks me. He was my pupil, friend and honored 
colleague. The faculty and students of the Univer- 
sity of Virginia share with me this grief and join 
with me in sending to the University and the State 
of North Carolina their expressions of sympathy and 
sorrow for the loss of this great public servant in the 
very prime of his national promise. — Edwin A. Al- 

I have always felt a great joy in the distinguished 
career and far reaching service of your aifted son, 
but it so fell out that I had no opportunity for inti- 
mate personal acquaintance with him till last year 
when I was a guest in his home for some days. I 
then saw for myself the high, fine nature and Chris- 
tian manhood which so commanded the respect and 
affection that I had often heard expressed by others. 
— W. W. Moore, President Union Theological Sem- 

The University of Florida, including Board of 
Control, present faculty, and students, wishes to 
extend deepest sympathy to Trustees, faculty, stu- 
dents, and bereaved family of President Graham 
whose death they now mourn. The nation, the South 
in particular, loses a vigorous scholar, a constructive 
educational statesman, a leader whom we can ill 
spare in a time like this. May heavens blessings 
abide with you and give you consolation. — A. A. 
Murphoe, President. 

I have learned with keenest regret of the great loss 
that has come to your institution in the death of its 
distinguished son and most worthy President. Dr. 
Graham was not only an inspiring teacher and a 
skillful administrator but was in a very real sense an 
educational leader who enjoyed the confidence and 
respect of the profession and the affection of his con- 
stituency. His influence was felt far beyond the 
borders of his native State, and Randolph-Macon 
Woman's College mourns with you in his loss. — 
William A. Webb, President. 

Am greatly shocked at death of President Graham. 
His passing is a great loss to education in South and 
nation. Please convey my sincere sympathy to his 
family and your faculty. — Brown Ayres, President 
of the University of Tennessee. 

Please convey to faculty of the University and 
family the profound sympathy of the president and 
faculty of Sweetbriar College in the loss of their dis- 
tinguished President. Dr. Graham's wife was our 
first professor of Latin ; we have rejoiced in his suc- 
cesses and are shocked at his sudden death. — Emilie 
W. McVea, President of Sweetbriar College. 

My heart is sorrowing with the University in its 
grief over the untimely death of President Graham. 
"For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime, young Ly- 
cidas, and hath not left his peer." — George T. 

I am inexpressibly shocked. The State and na- 
tion have lost a constructive leader, wise in council, 
forceful in action, farsighted in vision. — C. Alphonso 

The news this morning of the death of President 
E. K. Graham stirs the heart of every loyal alumnus 
of the University of North Carolina. I cannot re- 
frain from expressing to you, the impression Dr.. 
Graham made upon me. 

He seemed to me to be always living upon the 
heights, and his vision was correspondingly broad, 
deep and far-sighted. He looked to God and then out- 
ward upon the great commonwealth, whose citizenship 
he was to train for the highest service. At his inaugu- 
ration, the intitial outline he gave of his purpose and 
plans stamps him as one of the wisest and worthiest 
leaders of his generation. Scarcely had they begun 
to take shape before the world-war thrust itself across 
their realization, and seeing that nothing so potent 
for Democracy could have free development in a 
world dominated by autocratic rule, he dedicated 
himself to the insistent call to win a victory that 
should clear the way for the accomplishment not 
only of his own but of all like noble ends. May the 
heritage of purpose and achievement he has be- 
queathed fall into hands capable of completing the 
task to which he sacrificed himself every moment of 
his life. — R. P. Pell, President Converse College. 

No man in the South or the Nation better knew 
the functions of a State University. He believed 
with all his soul in the Physical Sciences — in the 
conquest of Nature for the relief of man's estate in 
the earth ; and just as strongly in the Social Sciences 
— in the new humanities whose field is the conquest 
of Human Nature for the common weal. He treas- 
ured the classics of every race and all ages as price- 
less memorials of the noblest in man, forged in the 
fires of spirit by the choicest souls among men. And 
true to the genius of his Scotch forebears, he held 
The Book to be the classic of classics — the final 
source of human strength in the everlasting struggle 
of the Best with the Beast in the affairs of men and 
the destinies of nations. 

A greater, nobler University and a greater, nobler 
State — these were the soul, the very essence of the 
being of Edward Kidder Graham. As this institution 
and this State move forward in the years to come 
they will forever glimpse far in the fore the beckon- 
ing hand of this gentle, sweet spirit, this lover of his 
kind, this prophet, priest, and king among his fel- 
lows. His life brief as it was as men count time is 
a lasting, everlasting benediction to the State and 
the Nation. — E. C. Branson in the News Letter. 

I have never known a man who saw more keenly 
than he into the limitations of others. I have never 
known one who saw more quickly beyond those limi- 
tations or could more easily take the will for the 



deed. He never drew painful attention to the bad 
symptom. So whenever or wherever you found him 
he was in tune with you. You never got a setback 
from Dr. Graham. He always gave you the invita- 
tion out into the open territory. He could take your 
toy to pieces — which did look like a setback — but he 
helped you to put it together again in a better way. 
And it was always the fine spirit that was suffering 
from a let down of nerve force. He was never in on 
himself — never in a mood. He was always for you 
when you came to him and you could use him to the 
utmost. — W. D. Moss in the Tar Heel. 


As indicated in press dispatches of early Septem- 
ber, the University has secured through purchase the 
Stephen B. Weeks Collection of North Caroliniana 
comprising 10,000 books, pamphlets, bound and un- 
bound periodicals, bound and unbound newspapers, 
maps, reports of State officers and State institutions, 

The collector, the late Dr. Stephen B. Weeks, '86, 
Historian of the U. S. Bureau of Education since 
1911, began the collection in February, thirty-four 
years ago. In addition to the natural instinct of a 
collector, he brought to bear upon the work of form- 
ing the collection a discriminating judgment acquired 
in indexing the 30-volume set of North Carolina 
Colonial and State Records, in editing, with Capt. 
S. A. Ashe and C. L. Van Noppen, Ashe's History of 
North Carolina and the eight-volume Biographical 
History of North Carolina, in preparing and bring- 
ing to partial completion in manuscript a two-volume 
bibliography of North Caroliniana, and in supplying 
the publishers of the American Catalogue a complete 
check list of North Carolina Public Documents. 

To characterize the collection without going into 
particulars is difficult; however, its outstanding fea- 
tures are emphasized in the folowing classes of publi- 
cations: 1. Association Books — by which is meant 
books that are of interest because they bear the auto- 
graph of prominent early North Carolinians. 2. In- 
cunabula — or cradle books, by which is meant the 
first books published in North Carolina from 1749 
to 1800. 3. Public Documents — originating with 
North Carolina legislative and other State depart- 
ments. 4. Civil War and Confederate Imprints. 5. 
Newspapers and Magazines. 6. Biography and Gen- 
ealogy. 7. General History, Town and County His- 
tory, and Maps. 8. Poetry and Novels, Sermons, Mis- 
eel laneous Literature. 

Although there are several other fairly extensive 
collections of North Caroliniana, the most important 

of them being in the State Historical Library of 
Wisconsin, the Weeks Collection has long been recog- 
nized as the most distinctive in the country, and as 
such it will at once take rank with the Draper Col- 
lection of Middle Western History in the State 
Library of Wisconsin and the Bancroft Collection 
of Western and Mexican History in the Library of 
the University of California. 

No conflict of interests on the part of North Caro- 
lina institutions is involved in the purchase, as the 
collection in the State Library is largely a bound 
newspaper collection, and the North Carolina Histor- 
ical Commission has concerned itself chiefly with 
the collection of manuscripts, letters, and curios. 

The collection is being placed in the North Caro- 
lina Room of the Library and on the second floor 
of the main stack and is being catalogued and made 
available as rapidly as possible. Through the in- 
terest of Mr. John Sprunt Hill, of Durham, a full 
time cataloguer has been employed to prosecute this 
work and within the present year it is probable that 
the greater part of the collection will be made avail- 

Drs. L. A. Williams and J. H. Johnston, of the 
School of Education (Dr. Johnston was recently 
killed in France) are the authors of a 94-page booklet 
entitled "A Study of the Winston-Salem Schools." 
The study comprises the findings of Drs. Williams 
and Johnston in a survey made by them early in 
1917 of the city schools of Winston-Salem at the re- 
quest of the superintendent of the city schools. The 
headings of the chapters indicate the general scope 
of the publication, the first of its kind to be issued in 
North Carolina : I. Historical ; II. Organization ; 
III. The School Plant; IV. The Pupils; V. The 
Teaching Staff and Supervisory Officers ; VI. Fi- 
nances ; VII. High Lights. The surveyors go mi- 
nutely into every phase of the work of the city school 
system and offer specific recommendations, the adop- 
tion of which, according to the statement of Superin- 
tendent Latham, appearing in the introduction, has 
resulted in great good to the schools. This report is a 
part of a larger survey conducted by the University.

Economic Survey," by Professor E. C. Branson, and 
"The Industrial Survey of the City," by Dr. C. L.

In view of the nature of the work and of the class 
of students here this year, it is necessary to think of 
Chapel Hill as an army post and the campus as a 
University camp. Accordingly, the .lectures sched- 
uled by the University lecture committee have been 
planned as a part of the recreational activities of 
the men, and are designed to present to them in an 
interesting, clear and attractive way topics of vital 
interest to them in view of their own activities, and 
of the world-situation. 

Lectures will be given from time to time during 
the year on the great problems of today or the 
future — the history and function of the navy, in 
the past and during the Great War of today; mili- 
tary problems viewed in a large way, especially in 
connection with the conduct, strategy and tactics of 
the present struggle; surveys of the immediate fut- 
ure, after the war problems, industrial, political, 
social and economic. 

There will also be given lectures and readings of 
a popular nature, recreative and entertaining in 
character, along lines of literary and dramatic in- 
terpretation. From time to time, also, it is expected 
that lectures with slides will be given or motion pic- 
ture shows, having to do with phases of America's 
preparation and participation in the war. 

Among the lecturers for the year will lie Professor 
Koch, of the University, who will give a series of 

lectures and interpretative readings, chiefly of 
Shakespeare; a member of the French High Com- 
mission, who will speak on "France and the Great 
War" ; Professor William Starr Myers, of Princeton 
University, who will speak on "After the War — 
What?" The British and the French Commissions 
on Education; and others, concerning which subse- 
quent announcements will be made.

Through T. L. Simmons, '08, who is now a mem- 
ber of the S. A. T. G, a Pullman roadster has been 
loaned to the University for the period of the war, 
and is to be used by the Gas Engines classes. Prac- 
tical instruction will be given in the construction and 
working of engines and the classes will learn to 
take an automobile apart and re-assemble the parts. 
Four more cars have been ordered by the Univer- 
sity for this purpose. 


When the Government takes over things the fur 
flies. But who would ever have expected to live to 
see all the American colleges and universities open- 
ing with the classics abandoned, the secret societies 
abolished, athletics reduced to recreation and the 
students made to study ? 

It all seems too sensible to be true. — The Indepen-

— Died October 6 from wounds received in action on October 
2nd, in a base hospital in France, according to unofficial ad- 
vices to his mother in Raleigh from an English chaplain. He 
was brigaded with the British, which fact probably accounts for
