OPINION AND COMMENT 



HENDRIX 
STACY 



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- 
selves. 

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.

At the meeting of the Board of Trustees in Ral- 
eigh on January 28th, Dr. H. W. Chase, Professor 
of the Philosophy of Education

THE tACULll ''"■,,■ r ^ J 1 

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 
in it. 

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.

SPLENDIDLY i'H alumni. Four hundred and fif- 
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 
that preceded." 

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. 

' nnn 

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. 

nnn 

Definite growth of the University in a number of 
important particulars is also evidenced. The phy- 
sical plant is now valued at $1,200,-

Ijrary contained 83,151 volumes on August 15th, 
which, together with the 10,000 titles acquired in the 
purchase of the Weeks Collection and the regular 
additions to date, brings the collection near the goal 
of 100,000 volumes. In scholarly and popular pub- 
lications high records were established during the 
year. Studies in PhiJologij and The Journal of the 
Elislia Mitchell Scientific Society were especially dis- 
tinctive, and the High School Journal and the Ex- 
lension Lcaflfls — both new publications — won high 
recognition throughout the entire country. Refer- 
ence to the list of publications and addresses of mem- 
bers of the facultj' evidences participation by the 
University in the affairs of the learned societies of 
the country and an especially vital interest in the 
public welfare of ISTorth Carolina. Throughout its 
entirety, the complete report shows that the Univer- 
sity is alert, adaptable, and that it is functioning in a 
large, beneficial way in the life of the State and 
!N^ation. 

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. 

nnn 

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. 

nnn 

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

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 
way.

alumnus realizes that with the 
death of President Graham and Dean Stacy the Uni-

also realizes that the military regime and the de- 
mands of the present hour have left their profound

It is for this larger purpose, this purpose of chart-

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 
significance. 



LAW BANQUET 

Chief Justice Walter Clark, of the North Carolina 
Supreme Court, was the principal speaker and honor 
gniest at the annual banquet of the law class held 
January 31. Professors L. P. McGehee, A. C. Mc- 
intosh, and P. H. Winston, of the law faculty, were 
on the speech-making program proper, while Mrs. 
I. O. T. Emory, Silas Lucas, Norman Boren, and 
Albert Oettinger were student representatives to re- 
spond with pithy talks.

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 
rites. 

The following were the active and honorary pall- 
bearers: Honorary — Governor Thomas W. Bickett, 
Lieut. Gov. 0. Max Gardner, Prof. Eugene C. 
Brooks, D. G. Brummitt, Victor S. Bryant, W. A^.

ant-Governor Gardner, Dorman Thompson, G. V. 
Cowpcr, and J. A. Brown, assisted in the burial 
ceremony. 

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

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- 
siding. 

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 
Superintendent of Public Instruction succeeds Dr.

GRAHAM MEMORIAL LAUNCHED ON CAMPUS 



Just as The Review goes to press Secretary 
Coates announces that $20,000 have been subscribed 
by Carolina students to the Graham Memorial fund 
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 
success.

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- 
fare. 

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, 
and 

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, 
and 

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 
Class; E. E. White, Junior Class; Earl Reaves, 
Sophomore Class ; Santf ord Brown, Freshman Class ; 
Mrs. Irene Graves, Law School ; Donald Cobb, Med- 
ical School ; J. S. White, Pharmacy School ; J. S. 
Terry, Graduate School. 

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- 
resolutions : 

"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

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- 
ment. 

"That when the Senate adjourns today, it do ad- 
journ in honor of the memorv of Professor ^I. 31. 
Stacy." 

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 
high credit. 

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. — 
Josephus Daniels. 



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 
Daily Xeivs. 

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- 
culties. 

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 
Tar Heel. 

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.

' ' There are no alumni of the University in Bordeaux that 
I have been able to discover, hence at the banquet on October

Geo. W. Eutsler, President, .550 E. Jones St., Raleigh, N. C. 
— W. Doub Kerr has been returned from overseas and is con- 
fined to a hospital at Ellis Island, New York. He hopes 
to be moved soon to a hospital nearer Greensboro. He was 
formerly a member of hospital unit No. 65. 
— Geo. W. Eutsler is now located at 550 E. .Tones St., Raleigh, 
N. C, where he will be until the obsecjuies over the re- 
mains of Camp Polk are concluded. He is with Holloday- 
Crouse Co., contractors and builders. 

— 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 
ones. 

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

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

— W. C. Dowd, Jr., who is with th& Motor Truck Co. No. 
441, in France, in a long and intensely interesting letter 
to his family in Charlotte, closes with the following 
paragraph : 

"How's the flu? I'm hoping, family, it hasn't hit any 
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. ' '
