THE ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
For the second time during this fateful year the
University has experienced the loss of its official
head — this time in the death of Marvin
MARVIN Hendrix Stacy, Dean of the College of
Liberal Arts for the past five years and
Chairman of the Faculty since Presi-
dent Graham's death in October.
We cannot measure the loss we feel in the going
of Dean Stacy. For eighteen years, as instructor,
as associate professor and professor, as dean and
chairman of the faculty, he has been so intimately
connected with the life of the University that his
death takes out of it collectively and individually
something which we had imperceptibly come to re-
gard as a part — and the better part, too — of our-
Dean Stacy's career here has already become one of
rhe fine traditions of the campus. As an undergrad-
uate he stood out pre-eminently as a man of ability
and power, this being evidenced by the honors he
\v(in and positions he held in student life. In the
class room, he was early recognized as one of the real
teachers of the University. His sympathy with the
stiidents taught and his clarity of presentation set
him apart in the minds of the student body as a great
teacher. In the role of dean, he became the loved
adviser of the men upon the campus in all that per-
tained to their conduct as a body of self-governing-
students, and in the faculty his counsel and leader-
ship were of the sort that won from his colleagues the
highest admiration and respect.
And similarly in the University commtmity and
the State at large. One frequently remarks the close-
ness of the ties which bind members of the Univer-
sity community together. Few men have ever been
connected with the University who have been more
generally esteemed as a neighbor and citizen than he,
and the correctness of his judgments and his fairness
in all matters of private or public concern were uni-
versally conceded. By virtue of these qualities,
coupled with a rare eloquence and breadth of vision,
he was also constantly sought throughout the State
as a speaker and leader in all that related to the finer
life of the people.
Strong in the affection of the campus and State,
his coming to the headship of the University in its
hour of loss brought stability and assurance for the
future, and under his leadership the University was
quickly readjusting itself to the tasks which lay
ahead. Without thought of self, he devoted himself
unreservedly to the duties of his office, and fell at his
post in service to the. State and Nation.
Again, we repeat, that in the going of this fine,
sympatJietic, Christian gentleman, this neighborly,
approachable, human comrade, who walked with us
in the path of service, we miss an indefinable, better
part of ourselves.

pointed chairman of the faculty to
fill the vacancy caused by the death of Chairman of
the Faculty Stacy.
Dr. Chase is a native of Massachusetts, an A. B.
graduate of Dartmouth College (1904), and received
the degree of doctor of philosophy from Clark Uni-
versity in 1910. During his nine years of service at
the University, Dr. Chase has been closely connected
with the student body, has contributed frequently to
University and other scholarly publications, and has
been recognized as a teacher of unusual scholarship
and ability. He has been especially valuable to the
University as a member of the faculties of the School
of Education and the Summer School and as an ac-
ceptable speaker on educational and social subjects
throughout the State.
Upon the death of President Graham he was ap-
pointed acting dean. He becomes the official head
of the University with the full confidence of his col-
leagues. ' ^^^

terest of the Students' Activities Building as a mem-
orial to the late President Graham. If for any rea-
son the letter failed to reach you, take this opportun-
ity to read it and act on the suggestions contained
You, with the rest of us, have felt since leaving the
University a loyalty and devotion for your Alma
Mater that wanted to express itself in terms of ap-
preciation for her service. You have felt with the
rest of us in recent days the pride of connection
with and partnership in an institution that has
served the entire State of North Carolina in a way
that has called forth the approval and applause of
all. And now that the death of President Graham
has lost to us the matchless leadership which was
serving the State through the State's University, our
Alma Mater, all the sons of Carolina are drawn to-
gether as men who have experienced a common loss ;
and we feel a renewed impulse to express our loy-
alty and love in terms of practical service.
The enclosed booklet opens to us the opportunity
to say what we think of the service President Gra-
ham rendered to our entire State through our Alma
Mater ; to write ourselves into a memorial which, like
the man, will continue to serve every county and
every community in North Carolina as it sends its
sous to the University. The Student .\ctivities
Building is endorsed by the Faculty and Trustees of
the University, and by a committee at large from the
State. No more fitting memorial can be erected to
the man and no greater constructive service can be
rendered to our Alma Mater.
May I not, therefore, urge you (1) to give this
matter the thoughtful consideration it merits and the
most generous response you feel able to make ; ( 2 ) to
seek out the director of the campaign in your com-
munity, offer him your co-operation, and throw be-
hind the campaign the weight of your influence and
support; (3) to make it a point to interest others in
this cause which is big enough to appeal to all.

teen men seen on the first night of
the campaig-n subscribed $14,500 and the goal aimed
at is $25,000. One student handed Secretary Coates
a check for $500 and fifteen seniors in one group
pledged themselves for $1,500. Several students
subscribed $200 each. Many men working their way
through college contributed in large amounts, there-
by making real sacrifices.
In the President's Keport for 1917 the late Presi-
dent Graham spoke as follows: "In April, 1917,
came America's entry in the great world
ANNUAL e . J! ■ -n
REPORT war: a lact ol supreme significance to
the University, as to every vital institu-
tion in the Nation. Obviously it means great sacri-
fices ; but it means also rich compensations and great
new responsibilities. These will be, if adequately
met, of such importance as to make this report in the
eyes of the future historian of the University mark
the beginning of a new era in its development as
clearly separated from the fifty years that followed
the Civil War as that period is from the fifty years
The accuracy of this statement is abundantly borne
out by the reports for 1918 of the various officers of
the University recently appearing under the title
"The Eeport of the Chairman of the Faculty." For,
while the reports are similar in many respects to
those of preceding years, every one views the work of
the University from a new angle, and a new attitude
towards the future is presented on every page. The
University of 1918 was greatly different from that of
former years, and the new spirit which entered
with the coming of the war has in many important
respects come to stay.
A careful reading of the reports inevitably leads to
the discovery of several important recurring themes.
First of all there is the admission that
RECURRING ,, • ... . .,.,
„„_,._„ the imposition oi a military regime
upon the academic made stock-taking
a necessity. Every department and every instructor
had to meet a new situation created by the war, and
in doing this made a new appraisal of the value of
courses and methods of the past. In the second place
there is the expression of belief that much is to be
gained by the intensification of courses and improve-
ment of instruction. Wherever a higher grade of
instruction can be secured, it is recognized that it is
incumbent vipon the University to secure it. The
value of physical well-being is especially emphasized,
and the inclusion in the curriculum of additional
courses in the social sciences ami in business and
commerce is repeatedly urged.
Definite growth of the University in a number of
important particulars is also evidenced. The phy-
sical plant is now valued at $1,200,-

of 100,000 volumes. In scholarly and popular pub-
lications high records were established during the

sity is alert, adaptable, and that it is functioning in a
large, beneficial way in the life of the State and
Last year The Review took special occasion to
present the important recommendations appearing in
the individual reports in order that
the alumni might know what plans the
University is maturing for the future.
Specific recommendations presented to the Trustees
in the report by Chairman of the Faculty Stacy in-
cluded the following: Provision for the establish-
ment of a School of Commerce and Business through
which the young men and women of I^orth Carolina
and the South would have an opportuntity to equip
themselves for efficient participation in the develop-
ment of the country's industries ; the appointment of
a Director of Music to have charge of the various
musical organizations now on the campus and to
offer courses of a cultural value in the history and
appreciation of music; the appointment of a Health
Officer to have charge of the University Infirmary,
to supervise all matters pertaining to the health and
housing of the student body, and to assist the Uni-
versity in its work in the interest of public health
throughout the State; the appointment of a Publica-
tions Editor to systematize the Inisiness management
of the various publications issued by the University
and to have oversight of the news service of the Uni-
versity; and better provision for the comfort and
welfare of women students and the erection of a wo-
man's building in the near future.
Recommendations appearing in the reports of the
other officers included : the addition of instructors in
the School of Law and the provision of a three-year
law course; the addition of instructors and equip-
ment in the School of Medicine; the provision of a
recitation building, a building for the Department
of Geology, and the enlargement of the Chemical
Laboratory; the utilization of the entire first floor of
the Alumni Building for administrative ofiice pur-
poses ; the development of the work of the Bureau of
Extension ; the installation of additional stack in the
Library; the addition of instructors in the School
of Education and the further development of the
Summer School ; and the grading and improvement
of the grounds east of Caldwell Hall.
As indicated in the legislative information appear-
ing in the State press, the University has presented
„ , the General Assemblv with a pro-
OUR BIENNIAL , ..." ,^ ,
REOITEST gram oi activities contempfated
for 1919-21 calling for an annual
maintenance fund of $215,000. As already stated,
a large part of this increased income is intended to
cover the cost of the proposed School of Commerce,
the enlargement of the Law School, the appointment
of Directors of Health and Music, the development
of the Bureau of Extension, and other objects em-
phasized in the recommendations of the Chairman of
the Faculty and other officers. The program has
been well thought out, the request is moderate, and
if the increased maintenance is granted there is
every assurance that it will yield definite returns
to the State of Xorth Cai'olina.
After two years of cessation in major athletics,
the question of college athletic activities has again
Ijcen brought to the front. As a result
of military training, the idea of keep-
ing students in fine physical condition has been gTeat-
ly emphasized, and the value of their participation
in some sort of setting-up exercises or outdoor ath-
letics has been distinctly apparent. With the passing
of military training and the return to normal con-
ditions, there is great danger that the American col-
leges will lose sight of this value and will permit
the return to the old order in which a few men
starred on the varsity organizations, while the greater
part of the student body stood on the side lines at a
distance and watched.
While it is to be hoped that intercollegiate athletic
relations on the part of Carolina will continue to be
of very great interest, it is at the same time to be
hoped that the athletic management will make pro-
vision for the participation of every student in some
phase of athletic endeavor. The student body of
Carolina needs all that can be given it in the way of
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
physical development, and complete apparatus and
athletic grounds should be provided to this end. Un-
questionably it is desirable to carry out a fine in-
tercollegiate athletic program under the leadership
of fine directors, such as Mr. Campbell proved to be,
but it is none the less desirable that provision be
made for every student on the campus to participate
in all such athletic activities as will insure him recre-
ation from his daily routine and the building of a
well-developed, efficient body. The war has given us
the opportunity to see the athletic activities of the
past in perspective, and we should be able to act
wisely in accord wth the experience gained in this

alumnus realizes that with the
death of President Graham and Dean Stacy the Uni-
versity has sufi'ered an inconceivably great loss. He
also realizes that the military regime and the de-

CAROLINA PLAYMAKERS ORGANIZED
"The Carolina Playmakers" is the name of a new
organization at the University which promises to
take on State-wide significance and influence. The
organization, according to proposed plans, will be
the center of a movement in a new field for North
Carolinians — the field of community drama. Pro-
fessor Frederick H. Koch, of the department of
Dramatic Literature, explained the purpose of the
new organization at a lecture to the faculty, students
and townspeople on January 24, the lecture being il-
lustrated with lantern slides of original plays staged
in the northwest. Professor Koch has been doing-
experimental work in folk drama in the University
of North Dakota for the past thirteen years. His
work in that section of the country has received na-
tional recognition by leading dramatic and literary
critics. He is a new-comer at the University, having
joined the faculty last fall. His work in the field of
community drama at the North Dakota University
not only met with unprecedented success, but be-
came the nucleus of a great movement that has spread
and taken root throughout a great section of the
northwest and beyond.
The prime purpose of the organization will be the
production of original plays dealing with North Car-
olina life and people, and the promotion of such play-
making in North Carolina. This work will be car-
ried on in connection with the department of Com-
munity Drama and the University Extension Bureau
and the Carolina Playmakers will present programs
of original representative plays throughout the State.
North Carolina, Professor Koch thinks, is richly
endowed both with varied and interesting human
types; it is as yet a pioneer State whose greatest de-
velopment is to come — a State that offers an un-
rivalled opportunity for the production of a big new
play — a drama of the people. With the University
as a center it is thought that this new movement will
spread throughout the State and attain a national

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
MARVIN HENDRIX STACY
Marvin Hendrix Stacy, instructor, professor, dean
of the College of Liberal Arts for the past five years
and chairman of the University faculty since the
passing of the late President Graham last October,
died at his home her(> on Tuesday, January 21, from
influenza and complications, following an illness of
eight days. Thus the second official head of the
University has been claimed by the prevailing epi-
demic, and the University and State again mourn
the loss of a leader whose place is not easily filled.
Marvin Hendrix Stacy, the son of a Methodist
minister, the Rev. L. E. Stacy, of Shelby, who sur-
vives, was born 41 years ago in Burke county. After
preparatory training he entered the University and
received his Ph. B. degree in 1002.
A Leader in Undergraduate Days
In his undergraduate days Professor Stacy was a
leading influential character in the life of the cam-
pus, being readily recognized as a moulder of stiident
thought and sentiment. He found his chief interest
in extra-curriculum activities in debating and puldic
speaking, but was a scholar above all, as his election
to membership in the Phi Beta Kappa national
honorary scholarship society clearly demonstrated.
He was president of his graduating class and a win-
ner of the much coveted Willie P. Mangiuu Medal.
Pre-eminently a Teacher
Professor Stacy was pre-eminently a teacher. Fol-
lowing graduation he was appointed instructor in
Mathematics, remaining continuously in the service
of the University with the exception of two years
spent at Cornell.
From the outset, his career as a teacher was mark-
ed by steady progress. He was instructor in mathe-
matics from 1902-06, receiving the !M. A. degree in
1904; was a student at Cornell University in 1905,
1906, 1911 ; was associate professor of engineering
from 1906 to 1910, when he was made professor of
civil engineering. His ability and sound judgment
were signally recognized by the late President Gra-
ham who appointed him acting dean of the College of
Liberal Arts when the former became acting presi-
dent in 1913. His elevation to the position of dean
came the following year. At President Graham's
death Dean Stacy became chairman of the faculty
and hence acting president. Every member of the
faculty placed the highest sort of estimate upon his
judgment, which was always accepted as fair and
sound. He enjoyed the full respect and esteem of
this body of his colleagues.
Administers Student Discipline
While dean he administered student discipline in
a way that won for him the love and admiration of
the entire student body. "He took the common-
sense view that there was only one rule to be en-
forced — the rule of good citizenship. The same laws
obtained on the campus as elsewhere in ITorth Caro-
lina. He required that the students show the same
sort of interest in their work that the faculty showed
in theirs. The faculty member, he held, and said,
was merely an older stvident, and both teacher and
pupil sought a common object in truth."
Popular as Speaker
Dean Stacy was perhaps the best kngwn member
of the faculty in the community and in Orange
county. He was intensely and whole-heartedly in-
terested in all matters relating to civic pride and
community welfare. While it was chiefly through
his college work that Professor Stacy was best knowTi
to the people of the State, he has ever been in great
demand as a public speaker and has gone into every
section of the State in the interest of popular educa-
tion, speaking for the most part on subjects pertain-
ing to better schools, roads, churches, and like mat-
ters relating to community development. For some-
time Dean Stacy addressed the Bible class of the
local Methodist Sunday School every Sunday morn-
ine-, and the large rearular attendance at each meeting
gave concrete evidence of his hold on the student
body and community.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Married Miss Inez Koonce
Professor Stacy was married to Miss Inez Koonce,
of Trenton, on November 12, 1912, who survives.
Their home life was ideal. Both Professor and Mrs.
Stacy were vitally interested in all matters pertain-
ing to the community, tlie latter being- president of
the Chapel Hill Community Club at one time. The
other immediate relatives surviving are his father,
Eev. L. E. Stacy, of Shelby, and the following
brothers and sisters ; Judge W. P. Stacy, of Wil-
mington; H. E. Stacy, of Lumberton; L. E. Stacy,
Jr., of Wilkesboro ; Mrs. J. J. Harding, of Charlotte;
Mrs. C. C. Weaver, of Emory, Va. ; Mrs. H. F. Kins-
man, of Hamlet ; Miss Rosa Stacy, of Emory, Va. ;
Miss ISTancy Stacy, of Burlington.
Interment at Chapel Hill
The funeral of Dean Stacy was held at 2 o'clock
on Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 22, interment being
made in the local cemetery. A service was con-
ducted for the family at the residence, followed by a
short service at the grave, Eev. Euclid McWhorter
officiating. Simplicity and beauty, which breathed
throughout the life of Dean Stacy, marked the burial

mittee from the State Senate composed of Lieuten-
ant-Governor Gardner, Dorman Thompson, G. V.
Cowpcr, and J. A. Brown, assisted in the burial
The presence of hundreds of students, friends and
alumni and the protusion of wreaths and beautiful
floral offerings at the grave plainly bespoke the high
esteem and affection in which Dean Stacv was held.
IMPORTANT TRUSTEE MEETING
The Board of Trustees of the University had its
regular meeting in Ealeigh on January 2Sth, 1919.
The meeting was largely attended, the Governor pre-
The matter exciting most general interest, of
course, was the question of the Presidency of the
University. The Board, after carefully considering
the situation, determined not to go into an election
at that time, but to appoint a coimnittee to investi-
gate the qualifications of those whose names have
been suggested and any others whom the committee
might consider favorably, and to report their find-
ings to the Board as early as possible. The Governor
appointed as members of this committee Messrs.
Eichard H. Lewis, of Ealeigh, Chairman; Victor S.
Bryant, of Durham ; W. N. Everett, of Eockingham ;
George Stephens, of Charlotte; and Charles Whed-
bee, of Hertford. This committee is instructed to
make its report to the Governor as early as possible
and the Governor, upon receiving it, will call a spe-
cial meeting of the Board of Trustees to act upon it.
In the meantime, as a temporary arrangement for
administering the affairs of the University, the
Board elected Dr. H. W. Chase, Professor of Psy-
chology, Chairman of the Faculty.
The report of the late Dean Stacy, Chairman of
the Faculty, together with his budget for the next
two years, was laid before the Board and thoroughly
discussed. All of his recommendations, embracing a
school of commerce, a directorship of music, the ex-
pansion of the Law Department, provision for the
better care of women students, the appointment of a
health ofticer, and the appointment of a publication
editor, wei-e adopted. The budget was also approved,
and the Legislative Committee of the Board was in-
structed to present it to the General Assembly.
Other matters of interest which came before the
Board were the naming of the new Applied Science
Building the Phillips Building, in honor of Profes-
sor James Phillips, Professor of Mathematics and
Xatural Philosophy, 1826-1867; Professor Charles
Phillips, Professor of Engineering and Mathematics,
1854-1868 and 1875-79, and Professor William Bat-
tle Phillips, Professor of Agricultural Chemistry
and Mining, 1885-1888; the adoption of resolutions
in memory of the late President Graham; and the
appointment of a committee to prepare resolutions
in memory of the late Dean Stacy.
The following, whose terms as members of the Ex-
ecutive Committee had expired, were re-elected to
succeed themselves: Messrs. E. H. Lewis, Charles
Lee Smith, Charles Whedbee, James S. Manning,
and Francis D. Winston. Dr. E. C. Brooks, who as

as the result of a well attended mass meeting of the
student body held on the 13th and a campus canvass
which followed immediately afterwards. At this
time many canvassers have not turned in their re-
ports and consequently the total student subscription
is expected to reach $25,000. The results of the
campaign thus launched on the campus are heralded
as a strong challenge to the people of the State to
push toward the set goal of $150,000. The contri-
butions made by the students range from $25 to
$500 and include practically every man in the Uni-
versity. To Charles E. Kistler, a student from Mor-
ganton, goes the honor of subscribing the largest sum,
his contribution amounting to $500. Many students
who are working their way through college made
large contributions. Several students subscribed
$200 each. The first night's canvass resulted in a
total subscription of $14,500 from only 415 men
seen out of the student body of over 800, an average
of $35 each.
Albert M. Coates, Executive Secretary to the
fund, presided over the mass meeting which pre-
ceded the canvass. He happily introduced repre-
sentative students who responded with short and
snappy talks regarding the purpose of the campaign.
"The trustees of the University, the faculty, the
alumni, and the rest, in the effort to devise a mem-
orial which would express at the same time the love
we had for President Graham and our interest in
the University in a practical way, decided that it
should be a building which would gather into it all
the fine, free spirit of this campus through the men
who make it what it is and the organizations and
activities which tliey have built up ; a building which
would be a recognition and an approval of the stu-
dent initiative and self-reliance and power which
President Graham did so much to encourage and
promote; a Student Activities Building to be known
as the Graham Memorial," Mr. Coates declared in
his introductory address.
In commenting on the results of the student cam-
paign and its significance to the people of the State,
Secretary Coates speaks in part thus :
"The response of the student body indicates the
big terms in which even the students think of this
movement. It is a stirring statement of their ap-
preciation of President Graham. It reveals in a
vital way the distinct need on the campus for this
sort of memorial building. The deep interest in the
welfare of the University which it represents will
always be a memorial in itself to the efforts of Pres-
ident Graham to draw not only the student, but all
men, into a partnership in building up an institu-
tion which would grip the imagination of men and
challenge the support of North Carolina.
"It is a challenge to, the interest and the loyalty
of the alumni. It is a challenge to all public spirited
men who are interested in the work and in the de-
velopment of their State University. It is an appeal
to every community that is represented in the Uni-
versity student body."
The campaign was launched over the State gen-
erally on February 10th, although the exact date
for starting the movement in the various commun-
ities is being determined by the local directors. Lo-
cal directors are being appointed in every commun-
ity in the State and the work of organization is con-
tinuing at a rapid rate. Reports being received are
exceedingly encouraging and indicate that the cam-
paign will be vigorously and speedily pushed to

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS
BY WAY OF TRIBUTE
The following resolutions and extracts from edi-
torials taken from an innumerable list of sucla mes-
sages called forth by the death of Dean Stacy indi-
cate the appreciation and high esteem in which the
University's late official head was held.
Resolutions of the Faculty
The faculty deeply feels the loss of its colleague
and official head, Marvin Hendrix Stacy. As in-
structor, professor, dean, and chairman of the fac-
ulty, he was recognized as a man of great ability,
both as a teacher and executive. His influence upon
the University in its upbuilding and guidance has
been most helpful and he will be greatly missed in
its councils and in all matters that concern its wel-
Quiet in manner, utterly unselfish, he was strong
and wise in action. He had the love and respect of
the students and the admiration and affection of his
colleagues. Clear, convincing and eloqiient as a
speaker, he was a power for good in the University
and the State, doing in this way a large and import-
ant work in bringing the University and its work to
the attention of the people whom it serves.
Loyal, true, eminently just, sympathetic and con-
siderate of others, he was in the highest sense a Chris-
tian gentleman. We mourn his death and extend our
heartfelt sympathy to his familv. — Louis R. Wilson,
F. P. Venable, H. M. Wagstaff. M. C. S. Noble, T.
J. Wilson, Jr., Committee.
Resolutions of the Student Body
Whereas, An all-wise God has seen fit to take
from our midst.our beloved friend and teacher, Mar-
vin Hendrix Stacy, and
Whereas, Feeling that to the whole stiident body
he has ever been a kind friend and wise counsellor,
Whereas, To all of us singly and together, he has
been a generous spirit, easy of access, sympathetic
in understanding, whole hearted in devotion to us,
Whereas, He has sacrificed his all to serve his and
our dear Alma Mater, toiling tirelessly and unselfish-
ly to serve her in these recent days.
Be it therefore resolved. That the above convey
our heartfelt sympathy to his family and serve as a
sincere expression of the sentiment of the whole stu-
dent body of the University. — L. H. Hodges, Senior

Resolutions of the General Assembly
The i^orth Carolina State Senate paid tribute
to the late Prof. Marvin H. Stacy, adjourning out
of respect to his memory and adopting the following-
"The General Assembly of North Carolina, having
heard with profound regret of the death of Professor
Marvin Hendrix Stacy, Professor of Civil Engineer-
ing and Chairman of the Faculty of the LTniversity
of North Carolina, who died at his home in Chapel
Hill on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 1919, is desirous of ex-
jjressing its sense of the loss whicli the University
and State have thereby sustained.
"A graduate of the University and for sixteen
years a member of its faculty. Professor Stacy had
risen from the position of instructor in mathematics
to that of professor of civil engineering and dean of
the College of Liberal Arts, and had fulfilled the sev-
eral triists which had been committed to him with
such eft'iciency and fidelity to duty as to win the
complete confidence of students, faculty and trus-
tees. Upon the death of the late President Edward
Kidder Graham, he was at once placed in charge of
the administration of the affairs of the University
as chairman of the faculty, which position at the
time of his death he was filling with great ability
and promise. Therefore, be it
"Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Repre-
sentatives concurring. That in the death of Profes-
sor Stacy the University and the State have lost a
public servant whose career marked him as a teacher
endowed with high powers of inspiration, as a coun-
sellor of sound judgment, and as a man of high and
lofty ideals of service and broad, liberal sympathies.
"Resolved, further, That these resolutions be
spread upon the journals of the Senate and the
House of Representatives as a testimonial of the hii;h
esteem in whicli the people of North Carolina held
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Professor Stacy as a man, and their eoiificlence in
him as an educational leader.
"Kesolved, third, That the Secretary of State have
a copy of these resolutions transmitted to the family
of the deceased."
Resolutions of Sympathy
"Whereas, The members of the Senate have heard
with sincerest sorrow of the death of Prof. M. H.
Stacy, chairman of the faculty of the University of
North Carolina, and brother of our colleaii'ue and
friend, Senator H. E. Stacy, Senator from the twelfth
district, ISTow, therefore,
"Be it Resolved, That individually and as a body
we extend to Senator Stacy and the other members
of his family our sincerest sympathy in their bereave-
"That when the Senate adjourns today, it do ad-
journ in honor of the memorv of Professor ^I. 31.
Tributes from Individuals and the I'ress
Upon the death of Dr. Graham the trustees of the
University had little hesitation in plaeini; Professor
Stacy in charge of the administration of the aifairs
of the University while there was being; given to the
matter of selecting a permanent president the care
that the importance of the task made necessary.
There were those who felt that the final action of the
trustees would be to make him president of the insti-
tution and had he lived and this action had resulted
it is certain that he would have filled the place with
No member of the faculty was more loved by the
student body. He enjoyed their confidence to the
fullest extent. They trusted him implicitly. His
dealings with the students as dean placed a severe
test on his popularity, but resulted in increasing
rather than diminishing it.
He was the ideal teacher and it was his remark-
able usefulness in this relationship to the student
that might have led to a question as to whether he
might not have lessened his possibilities of service
by accepting administrative and executive duties.
The death of this modest, high-minded, tireless
worker for the upbuilding of the young manhood and
the young womanhood of the State is indeed a great
loss. — Neivs and Observer.
I was greatly distressed to hear of the death of
Prof. M. H. Stacy, Acting President of the Univer-
sity of North Carolina," said Secretary Daniels. "I
had known him for many years and had a high re-
gard for him and an appreciation of his wisdom and
ability. I know of the admiration and esteem which
the late President Graham had for him, and the
esteem in which the student body held him through
his many years of connection with the University. —
He was one of the finest interpreters of the college
to the student, and he had a rare gift in giving the
collegians a State rather than a parochial contact.
He never forgot, nor allowed them to forget, that
they were citizens of North Carolina above being
citizens of the college community, and they were
ready for college autonomy because they were train-
ed for the large citizenship. Mr. Stacy was not un-
like Dr. Graham in the genius, the sanity and the
high aim that presided over his thought and em-
jiowered him to accept the routine of professional
life as strength to do an ever increasing number of
things instinctively, for education was to him making
instinct to do the work of intelligence. And as Dr.
Graham, so was he ever standing with wings out-
spread ready to catch the wind of inspiration when
it came. — Oscar Coffin in Raleigh Times.
Again have the educational forces of the State of
North Carolina and the University particularly suf-
fered a tremendous loss in the death of Marvin Hen-
drix Stacy, Acting President of the University since
the death of Edward K. Graham. Both fell vic-
tims of the influenza epidemic. Dean Stacy was a
powerful force for right and justice, his dealings
have always been fair and liberal and he rightly
deserved the aft'ection of the student body and
the honor of the State. Stacy was a brilliant,
practical man, whose realm lay in the mathematical
and engineering field, rather than the literary, and
for that reason was less known than his co-worker
Graham, but in many, respects his equal. As dean of
the faculty under President Graham, it was Stacy
who helped, in the administration of his duties, to
make the administi-ation of University affairs in re-
cent years such a truly great success. Those stu-
dents who have come into contact with Mr. Stacy,
as pupils in mathematics under his teaching, will
never forget the admirable traits and that honesty of
purpose which characterized his whole being.
Time was too short for him as acting president of
the University to have really come into his full power
of leadership, but had he been spared to giiide the
destinies of the University longer, he would have
ranked in many respects the equal of Graham.
Stacy had a broad, common sense vision, that was
serving and would have served the University ad-
mirably in the present crisis. Son of a Methodist
preacher, and a member of a family that has reflected
unusual ability in places of public trust, courageous
and fearless, a devout Christian, Dean Stacy has left
his imprint firmly upon the State. — Greensboro
In the death of Marvin Hcndrix Stacy the Uni-
versity has suffered one of its great losses. I was his
teacher in his student days. I appreciated his high
manly qualities, admired his strong character, and
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
in the later days of friendship grew to love him.
Mentally he was highly endowed. He grasped a
subject readily, thought deeply, made his decision
after careful weighing, and then was firm as a rock
though just and sympathetically considerate to those
who differed with him. It is not strange that such a
man was a force for all that is best in the life of the
University from his college days through the years
of his apprenticeship to those of mature accomplish-
ment and gathering honors. He was one of the best
teachers in the faculty, sparing himself in no detail
of pains and time and repetition, getting the best
work out of his students. And they appreciated the
labor spent upon them, the unruffled patience, the
even-handed justice and the insight into their diffi-
He was admirable as an administrator, clear, con-
vincing and eloquent as a speaker, a man of few
words, but they were well weighed, to the point and
not to be misunderstood. Quiet, simple, unaffected,
a thoroughbred gentleman in the highest sense, I
never found in him the trait of self-seeking, rather
T had to argue him out of a sort of self-depreciation.
He sought no new honors nor advancement, telling
me once that the thought of present duty was enough
for him and I realized that duty had for him the
one clear call unmarred by thought of self, unstained
by pride of achievement. Such sweet, gentle, true
natures are rare. They constitute the finest, the
highest among men though not always so applauded.
Such are the salt of the world. — Francis P. Venahle
in University 7W?r.s Leffer.
For five years Dean of the College of Liberal Arts,
it was his difficult task to administer discipline on
the campus. In that capacity one can easily fail
cither through the severity that goes with prejudice
or the weakness that seeks popularity. Dean Stacy
made a splendid record, for he was neither preju-
diced nor weak. He went straight to the matter in
hand with the sympathy of a father but also with
the rugged sense of the moral standard. Tn this way
he endeared himself to the students and commanded
their admiration and respect. — Rev. W. D. Moss in
Professor Stacy, living and working with Dr.
Grraham, was animated by his spirit and vision, and
had he been spared to guide the destinies of the
University longer would, we believe, have come
nearer accomplishing the ideals of President Gra-
ham than any other man we know. President Gra-
ham and Dr. Stacy have both been taken from us
hut with us their spirit still remains. We will miss
their personalities, their kindness of heart, their lead-
ership. And while we mourn their going may thcii'
spirit be perpetual among us in a future leadership
that will "bear likeness to their own." — Tar TJeeJ.
PROFESSOR .MYERS LECTURES
On the evening of Monday, December 2, Professor
William Starr Myers, an alumnus of this University
(1897), and now Professor of Politics at Prince-
ton, delivered to a large and appreciative audience,
a most interesting and effective address: "After the
War — What?" No attempt will be made here to
make a precis of the lecture, as Professor Myers cov-
ered so many different phases — social, political, eco-
nomic, international — of the great problems of re-
construction and re-adjustment. Suffice it to say
that his lecture was unusually clear, vigorous, point-
ed, and effective. After it was over, no one could
remaip in doubt as to Professor Myers' convictions
on the various topics treated ; and it may be fairly
said that his views as expressed were sane, patriotic,
and characteristically American. The University here
feels genuine pride in Professor Myers, who holds
the chair of politics formerly held by Dr. John H.
Finley, and also delivers lectures on government and
jurisprudence formerly delivered by President Wood-
row Wilson. Professor Myers is one of the most
effective platform lecturers in the country, and last
year delivered lectures and addresses to upwards of
a quarter of a million people, chiefly on current his-
tory, politics, and the war.

RESOLUTIONS OF MECKLENBURG CHAPTER
The members of the Mecklenburg Alumni Association of
the University of North Carolina have been shocked beyond
expression at the death of Edward Kidder Graham, our
president, teacher, and friend. We all agree that as a presi-
dent of the University he was really great ; as a teacher he
was most inspiring of thorough study and perfect work, and
as a friend he freely gave the full rich measure of his all.
His life work was well done, we all know, but we cannot
realize that he is dead. He is not dead to the University,
nor to us, but lives in the spiritual influence he embodied
and worked out through the University for mankind and in
the everlasting ruby vaults of men's human hearts.
In our sorrow, therefore, we hereby offer to those of his
immediate family circle our heartfelt sympathy ; and we
hereby resolve that the spirit which he so perfectly embodied
shall by each of us according to our ability be carried on.

— W. Doub Kerr has been returned from overseas and is con-

— Dear Mr. M.\nning: — I am writing to you concerning the
death of your son "Freddie" (Lt. Fred Manning, C. A. C),
which took place in Brest, France, at the Naval Base Hos-
pital No. 1, about October. 24, 1918.
Freddie was dangerously ill on board the transport coming
over (pneumonia), and died about two days after our arrival.
Unfortunately to relate also, our major died on shipboard — so
there is sorrow in other homes on account of death of loved
Freddie received the best medical attention possible on
board the transport, but he was fated to die, so it seems.
I was attached to Freddie — I admired him. We were both
southerners (I, from Savannah, Ga.) almost the same age,
and we had lots in common. I met Freddie for the first
time at Camp Eustis, Va., where we reported for duty with
the 4th T. M. Bn., and I being a battery commander gave
him help and assistance to master his work, which he did
in wonderful style.
When our Major Beverly died on shipboard, I took command
of the 4th T. M. Bn., being senior captain, and I am still in
command and hope to be its major, and while around Brest
for several days, I made personal visits to find out about
Freddie and several more of my men who were sick. I
wasn't present at his death, but I found out it was brave
and peaceful, and you can rest assured you had a noble son
who gave his life for God, country, and humanity. Sad as it
is, I beg you to enjoy the comfort which comes from the
satisfaction that a brave and true American passed away
when Freddie died, and that he glorified himself just the
same as if he forfeited his life on the battlefield. I pray
God 's peace for his sweet mother — our mothers are the
real sufferers. To his brothers and sisters, I extend a heart-
felt sympathy and join them in their sorrow.
Our battalion left Brest the day of Freddie's burial. I
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
could not attend the funeral, so I collected all the infor-
mation as to his place of burial and personally visited the
site and instructed the lieutenant in charge of all the burials
to place him in a certain grave which I have located and
sketched for your information. Our chaplain, John A. Toohey,
was present with me and noted the place for Freddie 's burial.
The following is a description : The place of burial is
the American Soldiers' section of the cemetery at the town
of Lambesellae, about two miles outside of Brest, France.
The grave is located as the first grave in the second row from
the brick wall of the cemetery.
On my return to the States, I hope to see you or call upon
you and tell you more about your great loss.
With deepest feelings, I am

of you. It 's treacherous, of Hunnish characteristics. I ima-
gine that's what took Ed Graham away — the severest shock
I have received on this side. I read of his death in a re-
cent issue of the New York Herald. North Carolina has
lost her foremost student; her pioneer educator; her greatest,
if there is a superlative, man. Personally, I never felt
better. Am feeling tip top in every respect — and have
no intentions of feeling any other way. And I'm hoping
you 're with me. ' '
