Friends, no matter how reliable, are usually too busy to undertake the duties of executor 
of a will. Reliable relatives — a wife, for example — may shrink from the responsibility in- 
volved iu the management of the estate. 

Yet every will must be administered. 

By whom, then? Preferably by a company whose business it is. 

This company's reputation for reliability is at stake every time it undertakes an ex- 
ecutorship. Its management of all estates, therefore, must be business-like, and at the same 
rime, satisfactory to the persons concerned.

OPINION AND COMMENT 



As stated at length in later pages, the joint com- 
mittee of Trustees and Faculty on permanent mem- 
orials to President Graham, at a 



STUDENT 

ACTIVITIES 

BUILDING 



meeting in Governor Bickett's office 



in Raleigh on December 16th, de- 
cided on erecting upon the campus 
through funds to be secured from the alumni and 
friends of the University a Student Activities Build- 
ing, to be known as the Graham Memorial, to cost 
nut less than approximately $150,000. 

In reaching this decision, the committee provides 
a way by which student life, to the improvement of 
which President Graham's whole heart was devoted, 
may be greatly enriched, and gives an opportunity 
to the men whom President Graham knew and served 
upon the campus and throughout the State (and that 
includes everyone) to pay honor to his memory. 

The Review does not pause to argue the need of 
such a building. New quarters for the Y. M. C. A., 
the Societies, the North Carolina Club, the county 
clubs, the musical and dramatic organizations, the 
publications, the student council, the Menorah so- 
ciety, etc., are sorely demanded and if acquired will 
tremendously contribute to the social life of the Caro- 
lina student body. 

Nor does it pause to argue the opportunity af- 
forded to render service in return for great service 
given, and to show honor whei'e honor is due. Ed- 
ward Kidder Graham, pre-eminently the most whole- 
some influence in undergraduate life in North Caro- 
lina for the past twenty years and one of North Car- 
olina's most distinctive educational leaders, is one 
to whose memory we can take pride in paying loving, 
enduring tribute. And especially so. if by so doing, 
we continue his labor — the labor of developing the 
well rounded, whole man.

nf procedure in raising the funds for the student 
activities building, but because of the large figures 
which it embodies. If the building is to be adequate 
tci all the needs which it is contemplated to meet, 
it will be necessary for every alumnus who contrib- 
utes to think and give in large terms — some one 
thousand, seme twenty-five hundred, and some five 
thousand dollars, as well as smaller amounts. In 
order to enable you to determine what your part 
should be in the contribution, we pass on this stan- 
dard of measurement.

Plans for the early issue of a volume of the es- 
says and addresses of President Graham are well 
under way and before another issue 
uf The Review the order for the 
number of copies to be issued will 
have to be given to the printer. For this reason it 
is highly important that every alumnus who wishes 
a copy for himself or his city or school library should 
send in an advance order immediately. The form 
which appears elsewhere in this issue may be filled 
out and sent to A. M. Coates, Executive Secretary. 
The book will bear the title : Essays and Addresses 
on Education, Democracy, and Citizenship, and will

On December 20th the S. A. T. C. at Carolina 
passed into history and its 650-odd student-soldiers, 
win i for three months attempted to 
combine the tasks of campus and 
camp, went to their homes for the 
holidays demobilized and honorably discharged. 

Appraisal of the value of the organization is ex- 
tremely difficult, as, in reality, the period of its ex- 
istence was too short and it was beset with too many 
serious difficulties, such as the influenza, the signing 
nf the armistice, etc., to function adequately. The 
verdict concerning it. however.. as pronounced by the 
University as a whole, was that it was not successful, 
and there was general relief, both on the part of the 
students and faculty, when it came to an end. The 
student-soldier found it practically impossible to 
serve two masters, and was unable to combine satis-

factorily class room work and military detail when 
no special effort was made, until late in the period, 
to cut the latter to a minimum. To add to the diffi- 
culties, the whole spirit of the organization was shot 
to pieces by the signing of the armistice and after 
that military duties quickly assumed the nature of 
drudgery. 

While the verdict in general was as indicated 
above, the organization was decidedly worth while 
from certain points of view. The student without 
exception found himself in better physical condi- 
tion at the end of the period than at the begin- 
ning. Furthermore, his attention was sharply called 
to matters of personal health and hygiene. Beds were 
aired, rooms inspected, the ban was placed upon 
ili rowing cigarette stumps and spitting on the 
campus, notices were displayed concerning coughing 
and sneezing, and the idea of keeping fit was empha- 
sized on every hand. 

And still another benefit was derived from the 
situation. Through the war issues and other re- 
quired courses, the faculty was brought to realize the 
necessity of so readjusting instruction to new situa- 
tions and conditions as to eliminate all non-essentials 
and to make the maximum contribution in the short- 
est period possible. The spirit of get-together and 
accommodation to conditions was stressed with the 
happy result that interest in the student and sympa- 
thy for him on the part of the instructor ran fresher 
and stronger than in the past — so much so, in fact, 
that The Review hopes that the new vitality may 
be carried over into the work of the future. 

In reality the S. A. T. 0. brought the war ami all 
that it means borne to the American college. It re- 
leased upon the American college campus forces, 
which if properly directed and applied, will make 
the civilization of tomorrow finer than that of today. 

□ □□ 

From the January number of the High School 
Journal we copy with hearty commendation the fol- 
lowing paragraphs touching upon 
OPPORTUNITY Nortn Carolina's fine opportunity 
to right the wrong she has constant- 
ly done herself through the years in that she has 
failed to bring, through an equitable scheme of 
taxation, her resources to the support of her various 
agencies which look to the upbuilding of her citi- 
zenship. 

Opportunity for enacting constructive legislation 
will knock hard at the door of the General Assembly 
of North Carolina when it convenes in Raleigh this 
month — harder than it has knocked the door of any 



previous legislature in this generation. There is a 
clear call from the people of the State for intelligent, 
forward-looking, courageous action ; and the citizen- 
ship of the State is in a mood to endorse any sane, 
progressive, just measures that look to the welfare 
and up-building of an old commonwealth that, in 
some particulars, has lagged too long. The people 
are, indeed, demanding and expecting modern legis- 
lation along many lines, constructed on principles 
universally approved as sound, based upon our own 
economic and social conditions and needs, and yet in 
keeping with our potential strength and greatness. 
Unless all signs fail, we are ready to be led out of a 
wilderness of false political and economic schooling 
that has too long taught us to think in terms of our 
poverty, rather than in terms of our actual and po- 
tential wealth and strength and resources — human 
and material. The World War (and our part in it) 
has enlarged our sympathies, broadened our vision, 
aroused in us a generous enthusiasm for the best as 
judged by world standards, and it has opened our 
eyes to "the instant need of things" here at home. 

The law-makers must, of course, concern them- 
selves wth a great variety of perplexing problems, 
especially with the enactment of legislation that looks 
to protecting, stimulating, and directing every neces- 
sary legitimate enterprise, public and private, and to 
a fuller development and utilization of the State's 
institutions and resources. In no other field, how- 
ever, at this time is the opportunity so great or the 
demand so imperative for progressive legislation as 
in the domain of the State's educational interests. 
And on no other public question have the people of 
the State ever spoken their will with such unanimity 
of agreement as they expressed it on November 7th 
regarding their schools! The call, therefore, direct 
from the people to the legislature, is clear, distinct, 
and unmistakable.

Upon the entry of America into the world conflict, 

the University instantly devoted itself to the winning 

of the war. It gave 2,250 men to the

reaching the public it set about strength-

Happily that task is done and once more America 
turns to the ways of peace. But with the ending of 
the war has come the necessity of turning into profit 
the splendid lessons growing out of the conflict, and 
of solving the problems of demobilization, readjust- 
ment, and reconstruction in such a way as to secure 
the greatest possible benefit to civilization. 

Tn this new task the University finds a new oppor- 
tunity to serve; and to this end it proposes to em- 
ploy its various agencies for reaching the public. Its 
War Information Service will give place to an

After-the-War Information Service, and its study 
courses, public lectures, publications, and package li- 
brary service will be devoted in the future to the con- 
sideration of topics in the fields of education, eco- 
nomics, industry, social relations, health, interna- 
tional relations, and government. An Extension 
Leaflet setting forth in detail the nature and scope 
of the service will be issued before the first of Feb- 
ruary and the co-operation of the alumni is asked in 
making it effective throughout the State. 

□ □□ 

Press notices of December 21st carried the an- 
nouncement of the resignation of Dr. James Yadkin 
Joyner, 1881, as superintendent of 
public instruction of North Carolina, 
his resignation to become effective on January first. 

In relinquishing his post as superintendent in 
chief of the public schools of the State, which he had 
held for seventeen years, Dr. Joyner leaves behind 
him a total achievement of which he and the State 
may be justly proud, and from which untold benefit 
has been derived by hundreds of thousands of North 
Carolina men and women of today and tomorrow. 
An extremely difficult office to fill, he has adminis- 
tered with ability and distinction, and upon the eve 
of his retirement to private life it has been his rare 
good fortune to see his plan to lift the professional 
standard of teaching in effective operation, and the 
movement to extend the school term from four to six 
months in the thousands of school houses which have 
been built under his direction authorized by the 
overwhelming mandate of the people. The Review 
makes no effort to set forth the whole story of 
achievement of the seventeen years, but it offers the 
above examples as typical of the total achievement, 
and again it repeats that it has been conspicuously 
notable. 

Dr. Joyner's retirement after more than three 
decades of educational service, directs attention anew 
to the influence of the University in the late seven- 
ties and early eighties during which years the edu- 
cational life of North Carolina felt the invigorating 
power of Aycock, Mclver, Alderman, Joyner, and 
others who at that time transmitted the spirit of the 
campus to the school rooms of the State. 

Dr. Joyner is succeeded by Prof. E. C. Brooks, of 
the department of Education of Trinity College, and 
editor of North Carolina Education. Professor 
Brooks is a leader of widely recognized power and 
enters the office at a time when the State is finan- 
cially able and, according to the returns of the recent 
election, willing to build substantially on the founda-

tions laid by his predecessor. The Review wishes 
him unbounded success in his high undertaking. 

DDD 

It is with regret that The Review cannot repro- 
duce by means of a full-page zinc etching the plot of 
a little cemetery of the village of 
™OSE WHO Lambesellac, France (two miles from 
Brest), where one of Carolina's sons 
who died on his way to overseas ser- 
vice lies sleeping. It accompanied the letter of the 
boy's captain to the boy's father, and with metic- 
ulous care, with woods, and walls, and hedges, and 
plowed fields, and every detail noted, it marks the 
boy's — our comrade's — resting place. 

Recently we read how French parents in the back 
areas whose sons had fallen at the front and whose 
graves they could not tend with loving thought, 
claimed the privilege of bedecking with lovely flowers 
the graves of fallen Americans. And here is this 
diagram, sketched in completeness in the rush to 
join battle, drawn to mitigate the heart ache of the 
loved ones at home and to make easy the bringing 
back of the sacred ashes at a later day. 

The story of the war is replete with many a page 
of moving interest, but none has called forth on our 
part more tender sentiments than this — this silent 
marker of our brothers who sleep in the hedge-bor- 
dered cemeteries of sunny France. 

DDD 

We are glad to announce that all the alumni maga- 
zines of the country. The Review included, have 
formed a consolidation to be known 
as the "Alumni Magazines, Asso- 
ciated," for the purpose of offering 
their total circulation to national 
advertisers and to make an attractive presentation of 
a powerful unit. 

Each one of the alumni magazines of the various 
American colleges and universities of the country 
will retain its own individuality and its appeal to its 
own subscribers, but this consolidation which has 
been in contemplation for several years, will give 
advertisers a combined circulation of 150,000. Im- 
agine the capacity and influence of this educated, 
trained, disciplined group of leaders in the profes- 
sional, business and social life of America ! 

If a manufacturer's product be known and ac- 
cepted by these men and women, he need have no 
other stamp of approval or medals for quality and 
excellence. 

It is proposed to solicit and accept only advertis- 
ing copy of a high character, which will improve and

that, wherever possible those college alumni who are 
connected with industrial concerns which advertise 
nationally, will encourage and promote the use of the

medium.

An announcement in which many alumni of the 
University will be interested, is that as a result of a 
meeting of the Executive Committee 
of the Xational Association of Uni- 
versity Extension in Washington, D. 
C, in November, a Division of Educational Exten- 
sion, with a presidential appropriation of $150,000, 
has been established in the Department of the Inte- 
rior through which educational extension activities in 
the various universities of the country will be more 
carefully co-ordinated, and by means of which the 
extension movement the nation over will be stim- 
ulated. 

The establishment of the Division, in which the 
University has assisted, has led to the appointment 
of a State Director in each State, and it is contem- 
plated that special investigations and important work 
alone new lines will be carried out tinder federal di- 
rection in all parts of the country. In North Caro- 
lina the Division will work through the Bureau of 
Extension of the University.

Elsewhere the story of the fire which occurred dur- 
ing the early morning hours of January 9th, with 
the loss of three fraternity halls and

damage to the windows and doors of 



the north end of the University Li- 
brary (the book collection suffered no damage what- 
ever), is given in detail. We mention it here to em- 
phasize the fact that the Library, easily worth 
$300,000, was seriously threatened and it was only 
by the rarest fortune that it escaped. Splendid work 
on the part of the fire forces of the town and the 
University, together with practically complete at- 
mospheric calm, saved the situation. 

We understand that the question of replacing the 
buildings has arisen and there is some discussion as 
to whether it is advisable. From our point of view 
there is entirely too much at stake for the buildings 
to be replaced, as the menace from fire is too great 



to be invited again. The close grouping of wooden 
structures inevitably leads to occurrences like the 
recent one, and under no circumstances should the 
Library again be endangered from outside sources.

GRAHAM MEMORIAL BUILDING 



In accord with sentiment widely prevailing among 
alumni, faculty and trustees of the University, and 
the people of the State, it has heen determined by a 
joint committee of the trustees and faculty to erect 
on the campus a permanent memorial to the late 
President Edward K. Graham in the form of a Stu- 
dent Activities Building. Tentative plans growing- 
out of the meeting of the central committee in 
Raleigh in December have been announced. The 
cost of the structure will be around $150,000, it is 
estimated. 

Such a building would contain, according to the 
proposed plans, the Y. M. C. A. and meeting rooms 
and offices for various campus organizations such 
as the dramatic club, Golden Fleece, orchestra, stu- 
dent council, Menorah society, athletic council, min- 
strel club, band, glee club, all the various University 
publications, the North Carolina Club, and the like. 
Class and organization "get-together" meetings and 
alumni reunions could be held in such a building. 
An auditorium adequate to provide for public per- 
formances of these and other organizations is a part 
of the plan. The two literary societies, the Philan- 
thropic and the Dialectic, will probably occupy the 
right and left wings of the structure, respectively. A 
reception room or meeting place for alumni, stu- 
dents, and relatives of the students visiting the Uni- 
versity will be provided. A dire need has long been 
felt for this last named contribution to the life of 
the campus. Tn brief, such a monument to the mem- 
ory and honor of the late educator would do much 
toward encouraging and stimulating all normal, 
healthy college activities. 

Was President Graham's Idea 

It is well known that President Graham in look- 
ing to the further enrichment of student life on the 
campus was greatly interested in just this sort of 
building. From the beginning of his presidency in 
L914 he looked forward to the day when such a 
structure could be placed on the campus. 
Method of Securing Funds 

Funds necessary for the election of the building- 
will be raised by a special intensive subscription 
campaign among the alumni and students. Details 
uf the plan are being worked out by a special com- 
mittee composed of Governor Bickett, of Raleigh; 
George .Stephens, of Charlotte; Leslie Weil, of Golds- 
boro.; Victor Bryant, of Durham; Clement Wright, 
i>f Greensboro, from the trustees; and L. R. Wilson, 
W. M. Dey, H. W. Chase, E. V. Howell, and C. 



T. Woollen from the faculty. A third committee 
to be composed of non-almnni citizens of the State 
will also be named. Albert M. Coates, private sec- 
retary to President Graham last summer, will serve 
as Executive Secretary to the fund. 

The site for the erection of the building thus far 
generally proposed is the site of the present Person 
Hall. Thus situated, it would greatly add to the 
symmetrical grouping of the campus buildings. 
Need for Such a Building 

A long felt need exists for such a building as the 
one proposed. The present Y. M. C. A., where most 
of the student activities are now harbored, was built 
in 1901 when the student body numbered only 500. 
The student registration now totals around 1,200 
and organizations have considerably multiplied. 
The only other place generally available for holding- 
meetings in connection with student activities is 
the University Chapel, familiarly known as Gerrard 
Hall, which is unsuitable and inconvenient. Home 
life for the students is somewbat lacking, in spite of 
the untiring efforts of the Y. M. C. A. to supply this 
feature. Such a building would serve this purpose, 
since it would not only be a general "get-together" 
and meeting place for the students, but would, in ad- 
dition, afford a desirable leathering center for alumni 
and relatives and friends of the students visiting the 
University. 

Buildings of this sort have been found exceedingly 
stimulative and helpful to student life in other col- 
leges in the country, notably the Harvard Union at 
Harvard University and Houston Hall at the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania. 



REGISTRATION REACHES 800 

As tin- Review goes to press the registrar reports 
that 790 students have registered since Christmas 
for the new quarter. The enrollment- i- certain to 
pass the 800 mark before the books are closed. These 
figures are very gratifying to the faculty and sur- 
pass predictions of the more optimistic. Some of the 
S. A. T. ( '. men did not return, as was expected, 
but losses in attendance from this source have been 
considerably offset by the large number of former 
students just mustered out of the service who are 
back. Many undergraduates are still in the service, 
but will return as soon as they are released. Work 
is well under way. Campus activities, temporarily 
suspended during the S. A. T. C. regime, have taken 
on new life.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



MEMORIAL SERVICE HELD 



Memorial services in .honor of Edward Kidder 
Graham, late president of the University, were held 
in Gerrard Hall on Sunday afternoon, December 
eighth, Prof. M. H. Stacy, chairman of the faculty, 
presiding. The formal program, arranged by a com- 
mittee of the faculty, was carried out as follows: 
Invocation, by Dr. W. D. Moss, of the local Presby- 
terian Church; President Graham as the University 
Knew Him, by Prof. H. H. Williams ; President 
Graham as the State Knew Him, by E. D. W. Con- 
nor : President Graham and the Nation, by Dr. C. 
Alphonso Smith : Integer Vitae, sung by a mixed 
quartette; Benediction, by Dr. Moss. Dr. Smith 
was detained at Lexington, Va., by the interment 
of his nephew, his paper being presented by Dr. J. 
G. deR. Hamilton. Dr. J. H. Finley, Commissioner 
of Education of the State of New York, who was to 
have spoken of President Graham as an American 
Educator, was unable to be present, but sent the fol- 
lowing telegram: 

"I wish I could come in person to testify of my 
admiration and affectionate regard for the noble and 
gentle souled Edward Graham, who is no longer vis- 
ibly present in the places dearest to him on this 
earth. He has multiplied his days in an eternity by 
the infinite that was in him. The nation is indebted 
to the University for the gift of his services. May 
his dreams and plans for the University, of which 
lie spoke to me when we last met, be realized." 

Professor Williams characterized the life of Pres- 
ident Graham, in part, as follows: "To present Presi- 
dent Graham as the University knew him is to tell 
how a Charlotte boy comes to Chapel Hill, graduates, 
and entering the faculty to take the work of W. C. 
Smith, whose health failed, within four years is pro- 
fessor of English, and within fifteen years is placed 
at the head of the University. It is to see him mod- 
estly, swiftly, simply pass into leadership of those 
who had taught him, revealing to them new and vital 
lines for their own work. It is to see the entire 
University rally to his standard and find its full life 
in the nooks and corners of the State and to see the 
State rise with united pride and enthusiasm into the 
possession of its treasure." 

Mr. Connor stated President Graham's conception 
of the modern state university in the modern demo- 
cratic state. "He conceived it not as a thing apart 
from the life of the present-day democracy but as its 
very heart functioning in every vital phase of its 
life. As such there is no concern of the modern 



state that is not also the immediate concern of the 
state university." 

Dr. Smith particularly mentioned the fact that 
President Graham's administration began and ended 
with the World War, and that his genius showed it- 
self in his ability to adapt the University to the 
rapidly changing needs of the hour incident to the 
vast conflict. In referring to his fellowship with 
President Graham as a member of the department 
of English, he spoke as follows : 

"During the seven years I was privileged to be his 
colleague in the department of English here — years 
to which I recur often for renewal of high feeling 
and fellowship — I learned to prize his judgment be- 
yond that of anyone of equal years who has ever come 
within the compass of my acquaintance. One char- 
acteristic was very marked. He could not be carried 
away by mere volume or numbers. Men and meas- 
ures that seemed borne on a tidal wave always gave 
Graham pause. He was listening to hear the voice of 
inner conviction. He was waiting for the crystalli- 
zation of those habits and processes of thought that 
he had learned to trust. This not only gave maturity 
to his thinking but added an edge of steel to his at- 
tack or defense when he entered the lists of public 
or social debate." 

The various papers presented at the services, to- 
gether with a biographical sketch of President Gra- 
ham by Prof. X. W. Walker, are being issued as the 
January number of the University Record, and 
copies may be secured free of charge by the alumni 
upon request to A. M Coates, Executive Seci-etary,

FRATERNITY HOUSES BURN 

Three fraternity houses, the Sigma Xn, S. A. E., 
and Pi Kappa Phi, were completely destroyed by a 
tire which started in the S. A. E. house at 2 o'clock 
on the morning of January Oth. No clue is to be 
found as to the cause of conflagration. The loss is 
estimated at $20,000, covered by $2,500 insurance. 
The houses were owned by the Sigma Ku and S. A. 
E. chapters. Practically all of the furnishings were 
saved. The whole fraternity row of 10 houses and 
the University library were seriously threatened by 
the Hames. 



Dr. W. W. Pierson spoke to the Current Topics 
Club at Rocky Mount on "International Problems 
of the Peace Conference" on January 8th.

FROM UNIVERSITY UNION IN EUROPE 

The following letter has been received from the 
director of the American University Union in Eu- 
rope, George H. Xetfleton, addressed to Dr. L. E. 
Wilson: 

"Mr. Crenshaw has handed me your letter giving news 
of the death of President Graham. I had already sent 

3 i cable expressing the sympathy of the American I ai- 

versity Union, and to that message I wish to add now on 
behalf of the Executive Committee a fuller expression of 
our feeling. Although it was given to few of us who have 
been serving the interests of the Union overseas to know 
President Graham personally, we all know of his influence 
and distinction in the American educational world. His 
conni ction with the Union has been a matter of pride to us 
and we deeply deplore his loss. It is a satisfaction, however, 
to feel that he has been actively identified with a work which 
we believe to be of large significance both to American 
college men at present in military service abroad anil to 
those international educational relations which the Union 
has already begun to serve in some measure and will, it is 
hoped, serve more and more effectively in times to come. 

' ' We shall be glad to distribute the copies of the Review 
which you expect to send us to Carolina men who register 
at the Union. ' ' 



FULL CREDIT TO HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS 

A conference of college and high school represen- 
tatives of the State, meeting at the University on 
January 6th to discuss problems growing out of the 
influenza situation, adopted the following resolu- 
tions : 

Resolved, (1) That this conference tiroes upon 
all schools the importance of completing as nearly 
as possible a full year's work. (2) That in view of 
the unusual conditions prevailing the conference 
recommends to the colleges the advisability of giving 
full credit for this year's work upon certificate of the 
principal that the student has successfully completed 
such work as the school offered this year, where such 
work is the equivalent of at least one-half the 
normal year's work. 

Supt. Fred Archer, of the Greensboro Schools, is 
author of the resolution which was amended by Dr. 
Pearson, of Wake Forest College. The resolution 
will immediately be submitted to the colleges of the 
State for ratification. Some forty representatives 
attended the conference. Professor Daggett presid- 
ing. 



JUDGE SYKES IS REFERENCE LIBRARIAN 
Judge Eohert H. Sykes, '07. of Durham, Law '98, 
former assistant attorney -general, will serve as state

THOS. D. WARREN I . S. DISTRICT ATTORNEY 
• I. < ). Carr, of Wilmington, a member of the class 
of 1895, United States District Attorney in Eastern 

North Carolina since 1915, resigned that offii n 

January 6th, and Thos. D. Warren, of New Bern, a 
member of the L899 law class, and a practicing law- 
yer fur some 20 years, having served in the state sen- 
ate and for the past six years chairman of the 
democratic executive committee, was recommended 
immediately as his successor. The change is effec- 
tive immediately. Senator Simmons paid the high- 
est tributes to both men in announcing the change. 
Mr. Carr will resume the practice of law in Wil- 
mington. His resignation is attributed to the belief 
that he expects to find greater monetary reward in 
his lucrative practice. 



LIEUTENANT BELLAMY RELEASED 

Lieut. Hargrove Bellamy, of the class of 1919, 
who has been in a German prison camp for several 
months, has been released and is now en route to 
join the American Expeditionary Forces, according 
to press dispatches of recent date. Upon his return 
to France he will probably be given a furlough or 
discharge and sent home. It was previously reported 
that Lieutenant Bellamy was minus one arm as the 
result of wounds received in action, but such a state- 
ment has not been confirmed. 



LIEUTENANT WELLONS IN DARING FLIGHT

were threaded by an army training plane from Scott 
Field. The airplane, piloted by Lieutenant R. A. 
Wellons, who was accompanied by Lieutenant R. H. 
Wheat, was seen flying toward the Mississippi early 
in the afternoon at a high altitude. When just over 
the river the pilot dived, leveling off just above the 
surface of the water, and shot through one of the 
spans of the Free Bridge. Climbing his machine he 
flew up the river and over Eads Bridge, under the 
Merchants Bridge further up, continuing up the 
river skimming just above the water he dived under 
the McKinley Bridge and headed cast back to the 
field. 

A few years ago Lincoln Beachey flew under the 
Eads Bridge, gaining for himself the reputation of 
being the only flier to accomplish this, but for the 
first time in the history of St. Louis all four bridges 
have been threaded, the feat being a wonderful dis- 
play of skill and daring. 

Lieutenant Wellons is a member of the class of 
1916.

E. B. JEFFRESS BECOMES PRESIDENT GREENS- 
BORO DAILY NEWS COMPANY 

The Greensboro Daily News of November 24th, 
last, contained the announcement that, with the re- 
tirement of W. A. Hildebrand as president and edi- 
tor of the company, he would be succeeded by E. B. 
Jeffress, '05, for long business manager, and now to 
hold the post of president and business manager. 
After two failures as a Republican organ, the Greens- 
boro News in 1911 was acquired by W. A. Hilde- 
brand and associates, who have published it as an 
independent newspaper. The growth of the paper, 
in circulation and influence during the past seven 
years, is both remarkable ami deserved. It is at- 
tributable, not only to the co-operative spirit which 
animates the stall', but in very large measure to the 
well recognizee! business ability of E. B. Jeffress. 
At Raleigh, a number of years ago. he won a reputa- 
tion as a reporter, chiefly in reporting political news. 
The policy carried out by Mi-. Jeffress may, one sur- 
mises, be summed up in the following statements: 
The best business judgment is that primarily a news- 
paper should be interesting to the community in 
which it is situated; that it should be a sort of clear 
ing house, in matters of public discussion, for the 
larger issues of state and nation; and lastly that the 
true way to write newspaper is "news paper." In 
1911 the subscription list was 5,000 to 5,500; today 
it has a circulation, in round figures, of 18,000 daily 
and 25,000 on Sundays. It is understood that the 
Greensboro Daily News expends annually about 



EXTENSION BUREAU NOTES 

Faculty members under the auspices of the Ex- 
tension Bureau continue to serve to people of the 
State through lectures. Several speakers visited va- 
rious communities during the holidays. 

Professor F. H. Koch spoke on "Shakespeare and 
the People" at the Greensboro College for Women 
and at Kinston, Goldsboro and New Bern. He will 
deliver this lecture before Flora McDonald College 
on January 27. to the Civic Forum at Winston-Sa- 
lem, and to the Rocky Mount Current Topics Club in 
February. 

Professor L. A. Williams lectured at Goldsboro 
and New Bern in December on "What is Democ- 
racy ?" 

Professor H. M. Wagstaff lectured at Goldsboro 
and New Bern on January 8th and 9th on "Austria- 
Hungary and the Balkan Problems." 

Professor G M. McKie read "The Man Who 
Stayed at Home" to the students of the Greensboro 
College for Women on January 11th. 

The Winston-Salem Civic Forum under direction 
of the University began activities on January 13 
with a lecture by Prof. H. W. Chase on ''World 
Forces That Will Shape Peace." Following up the 
community center idea, lectures will be given on 
Monday nights, weekly, before the Forum by some 
faculty member. 

A committee of University alumni and commun- 
ity leaders of Salisbury will meet soon to plan for 
the establishing of a community center for lecture 
courses. An arrangement has been perfected where- 
by faculty members will give a series of lectures 
under auspices of the V. M. C. A. in connection 
with the Sunday afternoon program. 



GOVERNOR BICKETT REVIEWS S. A. T. C. 

The S. A. T. C. and non-S. A. T. C. students were 
addressed by Governor Thomas Walter Bickett on 
Saturday, December 7th, following a review of the 
khaki men fry the chief executive, which was wit- 
nessed by a large crowd of townspeople and visitors, 
including many former students recently mustered 
out of service. The review marked the final drill 
of the S. A. T. C. men, since demobilization began 
on the following Monday morning. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

The Governor was full of enthusiasm over the ex- 
cellent showing made by the students, and was keenly 
sympathetic with the boys, who, whila rejoicing at 
peace, have experienced a keen sense of disappoint- 
ment. "But you are worthy of as much praise and 
as much honor as the men who actually fought on the 
field," the chief executive declared. He impressed 
upon the students the fact that peace has duties and 
glories no less than war. 



LIEUTENANT WAYNICK 

The following editorial concerning C. M. Way- 
nick, '11, appeared in the Greensboro News on De- 
cember 1 : 

Announcement is made by the Greensboro Record 
that Lieutenant Capus M. Waynick has joined the 
stall of that paper, having laid aside his uniform 
and donned the habiliments and duties of civilian 
life yesterday. The Daily News presents irs compli- 
ments to both parties to the contract and wishes them 
health and happiness. 

Prior to the time of his enlistment in training 
camp Mr. Waynick had been for some three years 
city editor of the Daily News, hence it is superfluous 
for us to attempt to disclose to the people of Greens- 
boro what manner of man he is. His former asso- 
ciates wish merely to go on record in their estimate 
of him as a man of high talent and engaging person- 
ality, native force and abilities well trained, of de- 
pendableness and breadth. They do not express the 
hope that he will continue to serve well the commun- 
ity and his chosen profession; they know quite well 
he will do so. 



A. M. COATES APPOINTED 

Albert M. Coates, '18, who graduated at the Cen- 
tral Officers' Training School, Camp Gordon, Ga., 
on November 30, has been appointed executive secre- 
tary of the Graham Memorial Fund and will have 
charge of the campaign to erect a Student Activities 
Building on the campus. He also has charge of the 
work of reorganizing college activities and is again 
president of the North Carolina Club. 



W. THOMAS BOST WITH RALEIGH TIMES 

W. T. Bost, '09, formerly correspondent for the 
Greensboro Daily News at Raleigh, has resigned to 
join the staff of the Raleigh Times. The Daily News 
of December 31 has the following to say: 

The Times and its clientele are to be felicitated 
unreservedly upon the acquisition of Mr. Bost. He 
is doubtless, as the Times states, "quite probably 
North Carolina's best known newspaper man." He 
is to be the Times' specialist in matters relating to 



state politics and state administration, writing under 
his name, and he is also to be associate editor. Mr. 
Bost's services have not been confined to the collec- 
tion and attractive presentation of news. Some of 
the most progressive legislation on the statute books 
of North Carolina is attributed largely, in a nominal 
way, to the Daily News; but in fact is the fruitage 
of news and editorial articles written by Mr. Bost, 
as well as of more direct efforts with legislators. 



PREPARING FOR BASKETBALL SEASON 

Basketball practice at the University which began 
early this month gives promise of an interesting sea- 
son. Over forty men reported for the first try outs 
and competition for the first squad will undoubtedly 
be strong. Many men of last year's squad are back, 
including Captain Cuthbertson and Lynch, who are 
letter men. 



LINDSAY C. WARREN CHOSEN 

Senator Lindsay C. Warren, of Beaufort county, 
of the class of '08, was chosen President Pro Tem- 
pore of the State Senate by acclamation by a caucus 
held on January 7th. The Raleigh Times of Janu- 
ary 8th by way of congratulations has this to say 
editorially : 

' ' President Pro Tempore Lindsay C. Warren, of the State 
Senate, is a result of what the News and Observer terms a 
'tame Senate caucus'; but the elevation of this youngster 
to a position of prominence was not cut and dried. Mr. 
Warren's work in the last Senate earned this recognition. 
Were we to name his chief characteristic, we would say 
that this is mental honesty. ' ' 



H. S. BASKETBALL CONTEST 

The fifth animal high school basketball contest 
will be held again this year, in spite of the chaotic 
condition of many of the high schools of the State 
on account of the influenza situation. The prelimi- 
nary contests will be held soon, while the finals will 
be staged at Chapel Hill in March. 



Dr. Louis R. Wilson, director of the Bureau of 
Extension of the University and University librar- 
ian, has just been appointed State representative for 
the division of educational extension of the bu- 
reau of education at Washington, D. C. 



Of the college men registered at the Naval "Y" in 
Norfolk last fall, it is interesting to note that the 
University led in the number of men signing up, 
according to a Norfolk paper. Cornell came second. 
The roster included college students from all parts 
of the country.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 



A recent editorial in the Journal of the American 
Medicn! Association ( November 2. 1918), carrying 
the title ''War Nephritis and Alkali Therapy," 
speaks in high terms of the work in animal experi- 
mentation of Dr. MacXider dealing with the kidneys. 
After making a survey of Dr. MaeXider's conclu- 
sions, the writer points out as an important dis- 
covery that the naturally nephropathic animals can 
be protected in varying degrees against toxic influ- 
ences by the use of alkaline solutions. The influence 
of Dr. MaaNider's work is thus emphasized: "Mac- 
Xider's demonstrations have already caused alkali 
therapy to he given extensive trial in suitable hu- 
man cases of war nephritis." In referring to the 
statements of Keith and Thompson, reporting from 
a base hospital in France to the British Medical Re- 
search Committee, the writer notes that "in the more 
severe non-resolving type of cases, however, alkali 
therapy seemed to be of distinct service in restoring 
both the normal acid-base relationship ami improv- 
ing the renal function." 



"Patriotism and Religion," being the lectures de- 
livered by Shailer Mathews, D. D., LL. D., Dean 
of the Divinity School of the University of Chicago, 
on the McXair Foundation at this institution in 
May, 1918, has just appeared from the press of the 
Macmillan Company, Xew York. It is dedicated 
in fine spirit and fitly chosen phrases: ''To the grad- 
uates and undergraduates of the University of Xorth 
Carolina who are now exemplifying the patriotism 
of democracy on the battlefields of France." The 



following significant statement, carrying a world of 
meaning, is found in the Preface: "It may be that 
they (these lectures) may hearten some of those who, 
without abating their devotion to the cause of inter- 
national peace, have been forced by the course of 
events to see no possibility of attaining that goal 
until the world is delivered by war from the menace 
of German imperialism.'' These lectures, which 
were very popular here and generally appreciated, 
are four in number : The Kinship of Patriotism 
and Religion; The Moral Values of Patriotism; Re- 
ligion and War ; The Service of Religion to Pa- 
triotism. A brief quotation may serve to give the 
spirit of the lectures: "The foundations for an inter- 
national morality are laid. It is no accident that 
nations which have shaped their recent development 
upon the principles of democracy should today lie 
struggling to restrain the aggression of the anti- 
democratic government of Germany. The begin- 
nings of a League of Xations committed to the main- 
tenance of peace already exist. France, Great 
Britain, and the United States for more than a cen- 
tury have ordered their relations according to an 
ever increasing recognition of moral law. . . As 
Americans we have no reason to lament that our na- 
tion has attempted to live like a gentleman among 
other nations. Our only regret is that our optimism 
blinded us from seeing that German patriotism was 
socialized highway robbery. The Monroe Doctrine 
may have sprung from motives of self-protection, but 
thanks to the co-operation of other great democracies, 
it has included also the protection of western neigh- 
bors. That is a precedent for the internationalism 
of the future. It is a new group-morality in which 
nations are the individual actors. It will grow dom- 
inant as nations respect the ideas of Christianity." 



A very interesting volume, which finds here a 
much belated review, is "The Mexican War Diary 
of George B. McClellan" (Princeton University 
Press), edited by Dr. William Starr Myers (class of 
1897), Professor of Politics at Princeton University. 
For the past five years, Professor Myers has been 
at work upon upon a life of McClellan in which will 
be stressed the "political influences behind the mili- 
tary operations of the first two years of the Civil 
War." Among the "McClellan Papers'' in the Li- 
brary of Congress was found the Mexican War 
diary, which Professor Myers has edited with dis- 
crimination, acumen, and adequate fulness. It is 
not possible here to give any detailed account of the 
events treated in the diary; but it begins in Septem- 
ber, 1816, with the departure of a company of en-

gineers from West Point, and ends with a graphic 
account of the battle Cerro Gordo. Glimpses of mil- 
itary figures afterwards famous in the War between 
the States — Lee and Beauregard, for example — are 
caught from time to time. McClellari wields a 
caustic pen; and exposes in all its ugliness the in- 
subordination, inefficiency, and even cowardice of 
the volunteer soldiery. One illustration must suf- 
fice: "As the Lieutenant-Colonel of the 3rd Illinois 



regiment was marching; a 



volunteer regiment along 



by the Hank he gave the command 'by file left march !' 
to bring it on the color line. The leading file turned 
at about an angle of 30 degrees. 'Holloa there. 1 says 
the Colonel, 'you man there, you don't know how to 
file.' 'The h— 1 I don't,' yells the man. 'D— n you, 
I've been marching all dav, and I guess I'm tired.' ' 



The issue of Studies in Philology for October, 
1918 (Vol. XV, No. 4), is a classical number, being 
devoted exclusively to studies of Latin and Greek 
authors. In his paper on "Foreshadowing and 
Suspense in the Euripidean Prolog," D. 0. Stuart, 
of Princeton, by a careful examination of the dif- 
ferent plays, finds that "generally towards the end of 
almost every Euripidean prolog come lines of fore- 
shadowing, which arouse suspense in the mind of the 
spectators as to what may happen and which stress 
the note of either hope or fear according to the exi- 
gencies of the situation at hand." lie reaches the 
conclusion, in modification of the hitherto accepted 
notion that the prolog tells exactly what will happen: 
"Generally we are told what thing we may hope or 
fear will happen" — and sometimes it does not hap- 
pen with the expected result or in the way antici- 
pated. A pleasing biographical sketch and survey is 
"The Poet Ovid."' by Kirby F. Smith, of Johns Hop- 
kins — marked less by any original contribution to 
knowledge than by an appeal for a more liberal and 
generous estimate of the famous Latin poet. The 
keen interest always aroused by the exercise of the 
detective faculty in the philologist follows a reading 
of the opening paper by G. A. Harrer, of this Uni- 
versity, on "Senatorial Speeches and Letters in 
Tacitus' Annals." Professor Harrer seeks to arrive 
at some estimate of the value as history of the 
speeches and letters cited by Tacitus. Unfortunate- 
ly, there are no longer in existence any of the literary 
works which served as Tacitus' sources: so the in- 
vestigator relies chiefly upon comparison with works 
covering the same period, the study of the . I nnals for 
internal evidence, and stray references in other Latin 
writers. In this paper, among other things, it is 
shown: that Suetonius sometimes got his direct quo- 



tations not from original, but from secondary 
sources; that Tacitus used material other than the 
Acta from accounts of meetings of the Senate; that 
Tacitus and Suetonius derived their accounts from 
one literary source; that Tacitus occasionally uses 
primary sources, in one case probably the Acta Sen- 
atus and that Suetonius copies Tacitus. In regard 
to the letter of Tiberius to the Senate (Annals, vi, 
6), Professor Harrer concludes: "Whether Tacitus 
used here a literary source only, or a primary source, 
or a literary source plus a primary source, it seems 
certain that he has not made up the letter out of 
whole cloth." In the note on Pindar, 0., viii. ff., 
Mr. Charles E. Whitmore, of Auburndale, Mass., 
ventures upon a new view which modulates the 
harshness found in this passage under the ordinary 
interpretations. 



"American Ideals," a book of 326 pages, publish- 
ed in 1917 by Houghton Mifflin Company, and 
recently revised and enlarged by the editors, Drs. 
Norman Foerster and W. W. Pierson, Jr., of the 
faculty of the University of North Carolina, has 
recently been signally recognized by the French gov- 
ernment through a request by it for permission to 
translate the book 'into the French language. "The 
desire of the French government in the matter is to 
disseminate the political ideals of America as formu- 
lated by Americans themselves." Permission has 
been given by the publishers and editors for the 
translation, and the book will soon be issued in 
French. Tt is interesting to note that the first edi- 
tion was reprinted several times, and that a new 
edition considerably enlarged is now coming from 
the press.

MECKLENBURG 

— A well attended meeting of the Mecklenburg Alumni As- 
sociation was held in Charlotte during the holidays. That 
nn alumnus of the University should be chosen to succeed 
the late Dr. Graham as president was the consensus of opin- 



ion at the meeting. The association also expressed favor of 
following this policy in selecting an athletic director. 

Lengthy consideration was given to conditions at the Uni- 
versity which have arisen as the result of demobilization of 
the S. A. T. C. 

H. S. Hall, president, urged the alumni to rally to the 
support of the institution during what he declared to be a 
critical period. After some discussion it was formally voted 
' ' that it is the purpose of the Mecklenburg Alumni Associa- 
tion to assist in every way while the University is making 
this transition and to facilitate the continuance of the good 
work so ably inaugurated by Dr. Graham. ' ' 

Archibald Graham, father of President Graham, and an 
honorary member of the alumni association; Lenoir Cham- 
bers, also an honorary member ; Chase Brenizer, H. C. Jones, 
Alexander Graham, E. S. Delaney, Marvin Ritch, R. E. 
Cochran, and others were among the speakers. 

New officers of the association were elected as follows : 
Skinner Alston, '96, president; F. B. MeCall, '15, vice-presi- 
dent ; Francis Clarkson, '16, secretary and treasurer. 

A committee was appointed to draft suitable resolutions 
regarding the death during the past twelvemonth of mem- 
bers of the county association who were in the army service, 
and of those who were in civil life. 



GREENSBORO 

— The Guilford County alumni met in Greensboro during the 
holidays, elected new officers, planned to make a large con- 
tribution toward the Graham Memorial fund and discussed 
the resumption of athletics between Carolina and Virginia. 
A good attendance was present at the meeting. 

The resignations of President Clem G. Wright and Sec- 
retary Duke Robins were accepted regretfully, and John 
W. Umstead, president, and O. C. Cox, secretary, were elected 
to fill the foregoing vacancies. 

One of the most important topics to arise during the meet- 
ing was the plan to raise from among the local alumni a 
large contribution toward the student activities building to 
be erected on the campus as a fitting memorial to President 
Graham. 

Resumption of athletics between Carolina and Virginia 
came in for a goodly part of the discussion. The baseball 
game between the rival universities at Greensboro this spring 
was assured the alumni. In the meantime a banquet will 
be given by the association. 

The following committee was appointed to draft resolu- 
tions of respect to the memory of Dr. Graham: Clem G. 
Wright, E. D. Broadhurst, and C. A. Hines. 

Resolutions of Guilford Chapter, Alumni of the University 

of North Carolina, Upon the Death of President 

Graham 

— The Guilford Chapter of the Alumni of the University of 
North Carolina, in annual meeting, records with deepest sor- 
row the death at Chapel Hill on October 26, 1918, of Edward 
Kidder Graham, president of the University, the personal 
friend of many of us; and the inspiration of, and the 
central figure in, our ambition for the increasing power 
and growing usefulness of his and our alma mater. Though 
one of the youngest men ever called to the position he so 
greatly exalted, he was permitted to fill it only long enough 
to show to the State and the nation the possibilities and 
opportunities of a great Southern University, and to prove 
not only his magnificent qualities of mind and heart, but also

NECROLOGY 

1855 
— The Rev. A. D. Betts died at his home in Greensboro about 
the middle of December, following injuries sustained from a 
fractured hip while attending the Eastern North Carolina. 
Conference in Goldsboro. 

Alexander Davis Betts, "Father Betts" as he was affec- 
tionately called by his legion of friends, was 86 years of age. 
He received his A. B. degree in 1855 and later the University 
bestowed on him the honor of A. M. and D. D. degrees. He 
was licensed to preach in 1855 and had continued actively 
in this great work until disability caused him to be put on 
the list of superannuates. 

— Dr. "William Hunt Hale died last July at the age of 85. 
He was a native of Wilmington and was graduated head of 
his class from the University. He studied medicine in New 
York and in Paris during the Empire, and was a surgeon in 
the Confederate Army, having charge of base hospitals at 
Petersburg, Va., and Fayetteville, N. C. After the war he 
practiced medicine in New York at his home in East Fifty- 
fourth street for nearly 50 years, and was greatly beloved 
among his intimates. He was pew-holder in St. Thomas ' 
Church, and a member of the University Club for more than 
40 years. 

1863 
— Archibald E. Henderson, A. B. 1911, as of '63, died in 
November at his home in Yanceyville. He was born July 20, 
1843. Was a lawyer by profession. 

1899 
— Died of influenza, at his home in Raleigh, December 18, 
1918, in his forty-fifth year, William Sydney Wilson, a grad- 
uate of the University of North Carolina, class of 1899. 
At the time of his death, Mr. Wilson — or rather ' ' Bill ' ' Wil- 
son, as he is affectionately known to '99 — was the State 
Legislative Reference Librarian. He was the creator and 
organizer of the Legislative Reference Library, a new de- 
partment of the State government, established by the Gen- 
eral Assembly of 1915. I remember very distinctly the re- 
luctance and misgivings with which certain prominent legis- 
lators voted for the act creating it, doubtful of the value 
of such a department and unable to foresee its field of service. 
Many of them supported the measure only because they 
understood that W. S. Wilson would be placed in charge of 
it and they had learned from long experience to have confi- 
dence in his judgment. In the brief space of three years 
he more than justified their confidence, making his depart- 
ment not only indispensable to the General Assembly, but 
generally one of the most useful departments of the State 
government. 

Wilson 's success was due to the simple fact that as a 
man he was bigger than his office. ' ' The University Serves ' ' 
is the motto of his alma mater, and this spirit of service 
with which she inspires her sons, he introduced into all his 
work. In his eagerness to promote the welfare of the State, 
he refused to allow his spirit of service to be deadened by 
the letter of the law. If he referred constantly to the law 
creating his department, it was not for the purpose of find- 
ing therein restrictions on his activities, or excuses to plead 
against his being required to do this or that task, but for 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

the purpose of finding authority for entering new fields of 
activity, developing new lines of usefulness, opening new 
doors of service, and such authority he never failed to find. In- 
defatigable in service, efficient in work, zealous in spirit he 
came to be generally recognized as one of the State 's most 
useful men, a citizen who fully and faithfully performed the 
duties of citizenship. 

He was a devoted son of the University. In the days of 
his youth and meager resources she had nourished him as a 
real alma mater, and in the days of his maturity and suc- 
cessful achievement he felt for her all the filial devotion and 
chivalrous loyalty of a true son. Twenty-four years of my 
life were passed in close association with him, as class-mate, 
as friend, and as colleague, and I ever found him as a com- 
panion cheerful and thoughtful, as a friend, loyal, as a col- 
league, helpful and stimulating. R D w CONNOR, '99. 
— Frank C. Lewis, of Kinston, died at his home in December 
at the age of 40. He left the Medical School at the Uni- 
versity of South Carolina during the Spanish-American war, 
enlisting in the 20th Infantry. lie went to the Philippines 
and saw service in the lake country of Mindanao, where 
Pershing distinguished himself. Afterwards, Mr. Lewis was 
chief clerk to Capt. Archie Butt, of Titanic fame, in the 
islands and at Washington. He passed up numerous oppor- 
tunities to be commissioned. He was the youngest son of 
the late Dr. and Mrs. Richard H. Lewis. 

1917 

— Carl B. Crawford, of the '17 Medical Class at tin- University, 
died in October at the University Hospital, Philadelphia, from 
pneumonia following influenza. He was a second year me lica] 
student at the University of Pennsylvania.
