SETTLING AN ESTATE 

ADVANTAGE OF FINANCIAL MINDS 

A great deal of responsibility must fall upon an individual executor or trustee of a will 
which directs the payment of legacies or annuities. 

To produce sufficient income for the purpose, a reinvestment of certain funds may be 
necessary. If an individual is appointed, he must shoulder his difficult duty alone. 

A Trust Company — with its many financial minds — faces equal responsibility, but is 
better equipped by experience to meet it. 

To know how to invest funds so that they will yield as large an income as is consistent 
with absolute safety of the principal, is one of the specialized every-day functions of this 
Company.

OPINION AND COMMENT 



CLOSE RANKS, 
FORWARD! 



Close ranks, forward! 

This command, issued by the Trustees at their 
special meeting in Raleigh on June 
16th in the election of Dr. Harry 
Woodburn ( 'base to the presidency, 
and most heartily received by faculty, student body, 
and alumni, brought to a fortunate close an unprece- 
dentedly fateful and critical year in the history of 
the University, and gave confi- 
dent assurance to the State 
that its chief educational in- 
stitution, though profoundly 
shocked by the loss of Graham. 
Stacy, and Rattle, and the con- 
fusion incident to the world 
war, had recovered its stride, 
and awaited, eager, strong, 
and united, the opportunity 
to enter the wider field of ser- 
vice which lies before it.

cultv since the 
DR. CHASE, , :, f ^. 

PRESIDENT * 0f , Dean 

Stacy, who as- 
sumed the duties of the office 
of president immediately fol- 
lowing his election on Mon- 
day of Commencement week, 
is well known to the alumni 
who have attended the Uni- 
versity during the past ten years and to the readers 
of The Review who have kept in close touch with 
the work of the University in recent years. Coming 
to the University in September, 1910, as professor 
of the Philosophy of Education, Dr. Chase imme- 
diately impressed the University community as a 
man of strength and quickly adjusted himself to the 
program of work in which The University was en- 
gaged. In 1914 the title of his professorship was 
changed to that of professor of Psychology, and upon 
the death of President Graham, he was appointed 
acting dean of the College of Liberal Arts. In Jan- 



uary, upon the death of Dean Stacy, he was ap- 
pointed chairman of the faculty, which position he 
filled so acceptably that the Trustees were convinced 
that they would find in him the proper successor to 
President Graham. 

In coming to the presidency, Dr. Chase brings to 
his highly responsible office a sound scholarship and 
wide knowledge of educational technique. During 
his undergraduate days at 
Dartmouth College, Massa- 
chusetts (from which he grad- 
uated in 1904 and received 
his A. M. in 1908), he won the 
reputation of being a brilliant 
student. In 1910 he received 
the degree of Ph.D. from 
Clark University where he 
pursued graduate courses in 
Education and Philosophy 
for two years. In the fall 
of 1910 he became professor 
of Educational Psychology in 
the University and in that po- 
sition and the later position 
of professor of Psychology, 
has been a constant student of 
educational and philosophical 
subjects. He has been a fre- 
quent contributor to educa- 
tional and philosophical pub- 
lications and has been an in- 
fluential member of societies 
oodburn Chase interested in the promotion of 

knowledge in these particular fields. 

Fortunately for the University, President Chase 
has acquired a very definite conception of the in- 
stitution whose leadership has been intrusted to him 
and of the service which North Carolina expects it to 
render. In addition to being a member of the 
general faculty. Dr. Chase has served with especial 
effectiveness on the curriculum and Graduate School 
committees of the University, has come in close 
touch with the teachers of the State through service 
on the faculties of the School of Education and the 
Summer School, and through service with the Ex-

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



tension committee since its inception has visualized 
the educational scene in the North Carolina of today. 
As an investigator of the school systems of the State, 
as a lecturer in the Extension service of the Uni- 
versity, and as a member of the Executive committee 
of the North Carolina Teachers' Assembly, he has 
come to understand North Carolina and the high 
mission which the University is to fill in its life. 
And more recently, while serving as a member of 
the Students' Army Training Corps committee, as 
acting dean, and chairman of the faculty, he has 
been tested in the larger affairs of University ad- 
ministration with general satisfaction to his coL 
leagues and the Trustees. 

Likewise, President Chase is characterized by 
many qualities of mind and heart that augur well 
for the future. He is easily approached; his sym- 
pathies are broad and genuine; he grasps the es- 
sentials of matters quickly; be speaks with clarity 
and distinction ; he is tactful in his dealings with 
members of the student body and faculty; and in the 
important administrative duties of bis office has 
proven himself to be a thoughtful, judicious execu- 
tive. In the community and church life at Chapel 
Hill he has been a positive force; and, to repeat our 
statement above, lie enters upon his new office with 
the hearty support of the entire University. 

With the tragedy and confusion of the year left 
behind ; with the uncertainty as to the headship of 
the University happily terminated: with the sign- 
ing of the peace treaty at hand; with the field of 
opportunity for service widening hourly, the order 
given by the Trustees is peculiarly fitting — Close 
ranks, forward ! 

DDD 

For years The Review has longed for an Alumni 

Day approximating that just passed which easily 

. . .,.„„ is entitled to the epithet "the best ever." 

ALUMNI r „ . . . , , L . 

DAY Lo begin with, there were alumni here — 

some six hundred of them. Furthermore, 
there were classes like 1899 and 1909 and 1918 with 
from 25 to 50 members present. Other classes run- 
ning back to the late fifties and the sixties were in 
evidence, with all classes in between represented. 
And there were quarters in the dormitories and the 
infirmary for all comers and good fare at Commons. 
And furthermore, the Carolina Playmakers gave 
two splendid plays which were so attractive that some 
half dozen or dozen Trustees broke away from the 
meetino- to see "Peggv" and "What Will Barbara 
Say ?" 

The big thing, however, apart from the luncheon 



and the speech-making accompanying it, was the 
spirit which breathed throughout the reunion of the 
men in service and the alumni conference. Fifty- 
five Carolina men made the supreme sacrifice in the 
war, and their fellows, both in the service and with- 
out, paused to pay them honor. And in the alumni 
c< inference, President Connor, of the Association, 
together with all the members of the Association, 
assured President Chase of the united support of 
every Carolina man. 

□ □□ 
As an outgrowth of the alumni conference, which 
was addressed by R. D. W. Connor, President Chase, 

A. M. Coates, W. T. Shore, L. R. 
ALUMNI ,, T ., ,'_-__. ' n 

PROPOSALS ilson, and L. It. Rankin, the fol- 

lowing proposals were embodied in the 
report of the committee on resolutions for the con- 
sideration of the alumni during the coming year. 
They are so important that they are reproduced as 
drafted by Messrs. I. C. Wright, Jones Fuller. T. 
S. Rollins, Lawrence McRae, and A. L. Cox, of the 
committee. 

1. That we heartily indorse the action of the 
Trustees in the election of Dr. H. W. Chase, presi- 
dent of the University, and pledge to him and the 
University the loyal and unstinted support of every 
alumnus, and cordially invite him to call on us for 
any assistance or co-operation that he may deem 
helpful in bringing the University to her full meas- 
ure of usefulness. 

2. We heartily indorse the establishment of the 
Graham Memorial Building, believing that it will 
satisfy a real need in University life. We suggest 
that the alumni council adopt ways and means of 
bringing this matter to the attention of the alumni 
generally, and suggest that they set out the need for 
the building and the uses it will serve. We feel that 
Dr. Graham was instrumental in bringing to North 
Carolina the feeling that the University was every- 
body's University, and was created to serve every- 
body. This building will typify that idea, and all 
alumni we have no doubt will deem it a privilege to 
help erect it and perpetuate and energize the idea 
in the life of our people. 

3. That steps be taken leading to the establish- 
ment of a system for keeping on hand, available, at 
all times, accurate information concerning all of the 
alumni. This bureau of information, established at 
the University, should keep in touch with the alumni 
and be able to furnish the correct address and other 
pertinent up-to-date information about every 
alumnus. 

4. That county alumni associations be organized 
in every county which does not at present have an 
association and wherever practicable outside the

APPRECIATIVE 



State. There are at present 58 local alumni asso- 
ciations in the State and eight outside. Thirty-two 
counties have no associations. 

5. That steps be taken for increasing the circula- 
tion of The Ai.im.m Review, so as to make this cir- 
culation more nearly commensurate with the size of 
the alumni body. At present the total number of 
subscribers is 2,750, while the alumni body numbers 
10,000. 

6. That meetings of the local associations be 
held frequently throughout the year. 

7. That an annual convention of class and local 
alumni secretaries be held. 

8. That support of the alumni to the Alumni 
Loyalty Fund be enlisted as a regular policy. 

9. That a complete war record of Carolina 
alumni be compiled. 

□ □□ 

Quite naturally Alma Mater does not make special 
distinction among her sons, but The Review is go- 
ing to venture the intimation 
that she is particularly appre- 
ciative of the thoughtfulness of 
three of the classes during the year and the com- 
mencement season just ended. Throughout the de- 
moralization incident to the S. A. T. C, the in- 
fluenza, the loss of president and dean, the class of 
1019 never wavered in its devotion to the ideals 
and spirit of Carolina. However dark the hour, it 
was at hand ready to do its bit. Similarly, 
1918, through its membership on the campus, lent 
itself to the maintenance of morale, and on Alumni 
Day returned forty strong to assure Alma Mater that 
its youth and hopefulness were at her disposal. And 
1909, after five years of absence, returned, with 
wives and children, and friends, and a check for 
$1,000 to add to the Alumni Loyalty Fund, and, 
with what is even more fundamental — the purpose 
to serve to the end. Again, we say. Alma Mater is 
impartial — but appreciative. 

□ □□ 

The Review always welcomes suggestions from 
the alumni, and it is particularly gratified to have 
the sort ottered by Mr. J. W. TJmstead, 
of the class of 1909, looking to the 
sending of new men to the University on the part 
of alumni. His proposal, made at the Alumni 
Luncheon, is that a special club be founded by the 
alumni, the secretary of which shall be the person 
regularly employed by the University to conduct 
the campaign for new students, the president and 
vice-presidents of which shall be those alumni who 
have influenced the highest and next highest number

of new men to enter the University during the year. 
The organization is to be a Send-Your-Mm Club, 
and Mr. Umstead wants to see every alumnus striv- 
ing for the posts of honor. 

□ □□ 

The Review wishes to lay special emphasis upon 

the following matters of alumni interest which 

should receive particular attention 
ANNOUNCE- , • ., ^ 

MENTS during the summer. 

1. Messrs. E. R. Rankin and R. 
\Y. Madry will represent the University in the cam- 
paign for new students; for increased support of 
The Review: and for information concerning 
alumni for use in the compilation of alumni records. 

2. Mr. A. M. Coates will continue the direction 
of the (iraham Memorial Fund. Local directors 
throughout the State are urged to give him hearty 
co-operation. 

3. The Treasurer of the University is authorized 
to receive contributions for the Alumni Loyalty 
Fund. 

4. Mr. A. M. Coates can supply copies of Edu- 
cation and Citizenship, by President (iraham, at 
$1.50 per copy. 

□ □□ 

Information that the Board of Trustees author- 
ized an increase in salaries (to become effective 

September first), approximating 
INCREASE IN „,? • *i +• ■ ' 

SAI ARIFS fifteen per cent, in the case of in- 

structors, assistant professors, and 
associate professors, and ten per cent, in the case 
of full professors, will be gladly received by the 
alumni. Tt will also be of interest to them to know 
that within the five-year period, October 1, 1914- 
October 1, 1919 (the high cost of living period), the 
total flat increases, including the one just authorized, 
but excluding special increases authorized in par- 
ticular cases, promotions in rank, and Kenan pro- 
fessorships, will be approximately twenty-five per 
cent ! 

In this connection we reproduce several para- 
graphs from the Minnesota Alumni Weekly of May 
26 based upon the action of the regents of that insti- 
tution. They are worthy of the consideration by 
Trustees and alumni alike. Read them: 

The thing of greatest interest to faculty mem- 
bers was the increases in salaries, which totaled 
$173,412. The deans and administrative officers 
came in for $5,650 ; full professors received an ad- 
vance of $26,000; associate professors, $13,050; as- 
sistant professors, $37,800; instructors, $28,400. 



218 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



The next largest item of increase was for one hun- 
dred and nineteen clerks and stenographers, who 
received an advance totaling $12,069. 

The largest increases, and the most numerous, 
went to the members of the teaching staff who were 
receiving under $2,500 — $124,672 going to those in 
this class. Those who had been receiving above 



$2,500 a year received a total increase of $40,900. 

Five hundred and sixty-nine persons receive ad- 
vances in salary ranging all the way from $5 a month 
to $1,000 a year, which was the largest amount given 
anyone. 

The skies look clearer and the sun shines brighter 
today for these individuals. 



ALUMNI DAY IS FEATURE OF UNIVERSITY'S 124th COMMENCEMENT 



Carolina's Sons Come Back to the Hill in Large Numbers, 
and Victory Reunions Score Big Success 



Class 



Featured by a big general meeting of the Alumni 
Association ; by ten special class reunions of classes 
ranging from 1859 to 1918; by the Victory Re- 
union of alumni from service; by the Alumni Lunch- 
eon; and by the performance of the "Carolina Play- 
makers," the celebration of Alumni Day, Tuesday, 
.Tune 17th, proved to be the biggest feature of com- 
mencement. The largest number of alumni who 
have revisited the University within recent years 
came back for Alumni Day. The alumni returned 
in fine spirit to renew college friendships, to come 
into more intimate touch with their Alma Mater, 
and to show their readiness to back the University 
in its new undertakings. 

Mr. E. D. W. Connor, of the class of 1899, presi- 
dent of the General Alumni Association, presided 
over the meeting of the Association, which was held 
in Gerrard Hall at 10:45 o'clock on the morning of 
Alumni Day. Mr. Connor assured President Chase 
that he would have the hearty and steadfast support 
of the Alumni Association in his work as Presi- 
dent of the institution, and introduced President 
Chase to the audience. 

President Chase Addresses Alumni Association 

President Chase addressed the General Alumni 
Association as follows: 

It is my privilege today, in behalf of the University of 
North Carolina, to welcome you back once more to this your 
well-loved home. From overseas, from duty in the camps, from 
all this wide country of ours, you have come back to us today. 
There is nothing perfunctory about our welcome. It comes 
from the hearts of all of us. You are at home again — at home 
On this quiet campus, with all its wealth of tradition and its 
charm. May wc to whose hands the care of this University is 
committed be found worthy of maintaining the rich heritage 
you have left us. May we realize in some measure the high 
destiny you have dreamed for Alma Mater, the far goals you 
have set for her. Men of Carolina, welcome home! 

President Chase Reviews Year 

The president of the Alumni Association has asked me to 
tell you something about the year on the campus which is just 



now closing. I think it is altogether fitting that this should 
be done. Never has the University known such a year — never, 
we trust, will she know such another. Three of the greatest of 
Carolina's sons have gone from us. Within a few short months 
Graham, and Stacy, and Battle passed to their reward. This 
is not the time nor the place to set forth the services of these 
men. I know we cannot think of them as dead. The sweet 
and gentle spirit of Dr. Battle, that modest, four-square right- 
eous life that was Stacy 's, the vision and the passion for 
democracy and the altogether lovely soul that were Graham's — 
these live forever in our hearts, they are a part of the very 
air we breathe here today. Out of our tragedies there has 
come, I think, a renewed consecration to all that Carolina is 
and stands for. The sons of this University have rallied to 
her in her dark hour. Students and faculty, alumni and 
friends, have all set themselves the task of wresting what 
might be of victory from the jaws of defeat. That we have 
come through — as I think we have come through — this bitter 
time with the spirit of Carolina still strong and free, is due 
to not one group of men — it is due to the united effort of the 
sons of Carolina everywhere. 

Made College a Military Camp 

We began the year with a dedication of the college to the 
most stupendous educational experiment the world has ever 
known. Men have often remarked that the college had little 
in the way of a definite standard by which it could judge of 
the success or failure of its training. But during the last 
two years it has had a standard — the altogether practical and 
unsentimental standard of war. And. judged by that stand- 
ard, the college has met its responsibilities. It has proven 
the great source of raw material for leaders in war as in 
peace. So marked was the impression made by college men 
upon the leaders of the army that, faced by the emergency 
need for more and more material capable of being quickly 
moulded into officers, they asked us, as they did the other 
colleges of the country, to place ourselves under government 
control for the duration of the war. This we did gladly. Our 
dormitories became barracks, our commons a mess-hall, courses 
in war issues and gas engines and camp sanitation replaced 
Latin and Greek and philosophy. Emerson Field resounded, 
not to foot-ball signals, but to the commands of "Fours 
right! " Men rose with the sun, went to bed — imagine it — at 
ten o'clock, after a day spent in washing windows, peeling 
potatoes, drilling in close order formation — with occasional 
class attendance and possibly a bit of study now and then. 

Then came the influenza. The infirmary was filled to over- 
flowing, the fraternity houses commandeered for hospitals. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



219 



Thanks to the efficient handling of the students by the mem- 
bers of the medical faculty, our student losses were light. 
Three of our young men — splendid fellows every one of them 
— gave their lives here as truly for their country as though 
they had died on the field of battle. And may I pause here 
for a moment to pay tribute to the self-sacrificing devotion of 
Miss Bessie C. Roper, who, serving in Chapel Hill at the time 
as a trained nurse, volunteered her services to the infirmary, 
and laid down her life that others might live. Her memory 
will be forever cherished in our hearts. 

Of the great tragedy which that epidemic brought to the 
University and to the state in the loss of President Graham, 
words are far too inadequate to tell. I can only say that we 
have tried as best we could to meet it in the spirit which I 
know he would have had us meet it — not in a mood of blind 
discouragement, but as a challenge to show in this dark 
extremity the stuff of which Carolina is made. 

The epidemic was waning when our S.A.T.C. received its 
second blow in the signing of the armistice. At once all 
incentive for our men to make good in a military way was 
gone. The story of the effort we all made to try to keep up 
the morale in this group of men would be worth the telling if 
time allowed. Those of you who were in camp when the armi- 
stice was signed might multiply your own feelings by ten and 
get a fairly correct idea of the state of mind of our men 
here. 

And so our experience with the S.A.T.C. came to an end. 
The experiment had been a daring one. To graft on the free, 
responsible, self-governing life of this campus the military 
attitude with all that it signifies was a task of no mean dimen- 
sions. There had not been time to work out the necessary 
adjustments. Military needs had perforce to take precedence, 
and the healthy spirit of the campus inevitably suffered. 
But the ardor with which the whole institution threw itself 
into the work of transforming the college almost overnight 
cannot be too highly commended. The spirit of service was 
everywhere. It is little wonder that, their feet treading such 
unfamiliar paths, our students should, for the time, have lost 
something of their initiative, should have, we sometimes feared, 
been a little too content to let others do their thinking for 
them. 

Rebuilding Carolina Morale 

Such was the situation which confronted Chairman Stacy 
when college reopened after Christmas. The quiet, tactful, 
effective way in which he dealt with it is beyond praise. Most 
fortunately our older students, who had been scattered in all 
branches of the service, soon began to return in considerable 
numbers. Their grasp of the situation, their feeling of their 
own responsibility, their co-operation, has been a constant 
joy to us all. 

The college staggered when Mr. Stacy was taken from us, 
but its vitality was strong enough to sustain even this second 
shock. Just how deep the roots of this University go down, 
just how sound and how healthy its whole life is, I think we 
have scarcely realized until this year. Those who have builded 
it have moulded it into what it is, have done their work far 
better than they themselves could have dreamed. The out- 
standing testimony to this work and to the passion and insight 
with which President Graham had devoted himself and this 
institution to the service of the state, has been the action of 
the General Assembly in increasing our annual maintenance 
appropriation to $215,000 during the next two years. This 
generous action imposes upon the University a burden of in- 
creased responsibility which the University has, I think, ac- 



cepted with a full sense of its importance. Among faculty 
and students alike there has been full recognition of the fact 
that no institution, and especially no institution with the 
opportunities which lie before us, can stand still at the criti- 
cal period of history. The S.A.T.C. at least set us to examin- 
ing our own educational theories, to trying to sum up in our 
minds what the war has taught us, of where we have suc- 
ceeded and where we have failed. In the trials of the times 
which lie before us every educational institution must learn 
or die. We have done much this spring in the way of altering 
our courses of study and our methods, which I will not detail 
here. Our educational life is, I think, once more flowing 
freely. 

And I believe I can say the same of our campus life. 
There have been few experiences so stimulating and so alto- 
gether worth while as those which have attended the steady 
come-back of the college spirit among the men on the Hill 
this spring. It has put heart and soul and life into all of us 
to see the magnificent fashion in which the students have ' 
responded to every call we have made on them. The honor 
system is once more in full operation, interpreted and enforced 
by a student council of unusual quality. A "campus cabinet" 
(successor to the "Greater Council") has been formed, to 
deal in a constructive fashion with the problems of campus 
life. It has done much this spring, and its work will continue 
and increase. The democratic spirit of our life here has, I 
think, grown and broadened as the months have passed. 

In athletics the season has not only been successful, but it 
has been characterized by a clean, wholesome, sportsmanlike 
spirit throughout. It has seen the renewal of relations with 
two of our sister institutions — a happy omen for the future. 
Coach Campbell, who has been absent in the service, returns 
to us in the fall, and we may confidently look forward to a 
year of athletic success and of high standards. 

We have, I think, won back our Carolina — the Carolina we 
all love so well. May she grow ever into new strength and 
beauty as the years go by! 

And now it only remains for me, before this company of the 
sons of Carolina, to pledge myself, heart and soul and body, 
to the welfare of this University. God grant I may prove 
worthy of your trust ! 

Graham Memorial Fund Presented 

President Connor next introduced Mr. Albert M. 
Coates, Secretary of the Graham Memorial Fund 
Campaign. Mr. Coates showed that the Graham 
Memorial building would fill a great social need 
and stated that to the present time $70,000 had 
been subscribed to the Fund. He pointed out that 
indications were for the success of the campaign, 
but urged the active co-operation of all the alumni 
to the end that the campaign be not a half-hearted 
sticcess, but a full and complete success. 

Dr. Louis R. Wilson, editor of The Alumni Re- 
view, made an appeal for the support of this publi- 
cation. He said that The Review was established 
seven years ago to inform the scattered alumni of 
what was being done at the University and to serve 
as a medium of keeping the alumni in touch with 
one another.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 




1879 's Reunion Representation 



W. T. Shore, of the class of 1905, of Charlotte, 
discussed the Alumni Loyalty Fund. This fund 
now amounts to $10,000, Mr. Shore stated. It was 
begun four years ago when the class of 1905 handed 
to President Graham a check for $1,000 to go to 
the Fund. Mr. Shore stated the class of 1905 was 
making plans to present the Alumni Loyalty Fund 
with another gift, this time for a minimum of $2,500. 

E. R. Rankin, Secretary of the Alumni Associa- 
tion, suggested ways by which the General Alumni 
Association could widen its scope and influence. 
The suggestions made were later incorporated in 
resolutions passed by the General Alumni Associa- 
tion.

vice, which list is appended below. It shows that 
2,285 Carolina alumni were in the military and 
naval service of the United States. Final returns

world war. 

Secretary Daniels was extremely interested in and 
proud of the record made by his Alma Muter. "The 
future of the Republic is in your keeping," the 
speaker told the ex-soldiers before him. Since vic- 
tory had been won in war, he urged that no less 
strenuous efforts be put forth to achieve victory in 
peace. 

Glancing at the University's service flag which 
showed that 2,285 Carolina alumni and students 
entered military service, and that 55 made the su- 
preme sacrifice, Secretary Daniels declared, ''these 
men never will be dead, because they are not for- 
gotten." 



General Carr paid tribute to the valor and forti- 
tude of the Confederate soldier and referred to the 
part taken in the Civil War by University alumni.

Faculty Reception 

The closing feature on the program of Alumni 
Day was the faculty reception which was given in 
honor of the graduating class, the alumni, and visi- 
tors, by members of the faculty. 



SECRETARY LANE IS COMMENCEMENT DAY SPEAKER 



Introduced by Secretary Daniels — Degrees Conferred on Eighty-Seven Candidates — Medals 

and Prizes Awarded — LL. D. for Lane 



"Ours in America is not a work of reconstruction 
but rather of 'carrying on,' " Secretary of the Interior 
Franklin K. Lane told the vast capacity-taxing au- 
dience that assembled in Memorial Hall for the 
Commencement Day final exercises on Wednesday, 
June 18th. "The morale of this nation is stronger, 
not weaker, for our war adventure. We were walk- 
ing in the right way before, and now we shall go 
faster," he said. "This country now hears itself pro- 
claimed as the greatest of world powers. We are 
not what we were. We have done things we be- 
lieved impossible and we are not unconscious or in- 
different of our fortunes. But the wine of military 
glory has not gone to our head. 

"But our years of test are before us and not be- 
hind us," he cautioned. "The creation of a happier 
society" was the central theme running throughout 
the address of the distinguished cabinet member, 
which had as its subject "An Adventure and Its Les- 
sons." 

LL.D. Degree for Lane 

The honorary degree of doctor of laws was con- 
ferred on Secretary Lane, following his address. 
Eighty-seven graduates of the University were 
banded their degrees by Governor Bickett. Five 
women students were among the recipients, one get- 
ting a law and another an M. A. degree. 

At 11 :30 the march of the academic procession 
to Memorial hall, where the exercises were held, be- 
gan. It was headed by Col. Joseph Hyde Pratt, fa- 
culty marshal, and Josh Tayloe, chief student mar- 



shal, followed by Secretary Lane and President 
Chase, and Governor Bickett and Secretary Daniels. 
Then came the faculty and members of the graduat- 
ing class. 

The exercises were opened with prayer by Rev. 
Maynard Marshall, President Chase presiding. 

Daniels Introduces Lane 

Secretary Daniels' speech of introduction of Sec- 
retary Lane embodied a noble tribute to the part 
played by the college men in the world war. "Out 
anions; the great mass of Americans there was the 
feeling that the college men were soft and lacking 
in the stern qualities that grappled with great issues 
and hardships. If anybody wanted to know whether 
the college man was fit, this war was the answer. 
Every college in America was the muster ground. 
The students forgot their caps and gowns for the 
khaki and gun. The training for citizenship and 
sacrifice in the college was demonstrated by the 
splendid leadership of college men on the battlefield 
and battleships. 

"Educational institutions met the challenge of 
war; they must meet the challenge of peace. The 
dangers that face America are now insidious along 
the line of junkerism that seeks to defeat the will 
of this war that the world must be made safe for 
liberty." 

Governor Bickett gave the outgoing seniors some 
sound advice in his parting address. Never before 
in the history of the world have any young men

FINAL EXERCISES OF GRADUATING CLASS 



1919 Has Strong Come-Back, Though Somewhat Crippled by the War — Class Gift of 
$1200 Presented — Delivery of Campus to Juniors 



The final exercises of the graduating class featured 
the second day of commencement, Monday, June 16, 
the chief numbers on the program of which were 
the senior orations in contest for the Mangum medal, 
the closing exercises of the outgoing class, the an- 
imal debate between representatives of the two liter- 
ary societies, and the anniversary meetings of the 
two societies in their respective halls. 

1919 Has Strong Come-Back 

Although somewhat crippled by the war and 
things incident thereto, the class of '19, with 87 
graduates, presented a come-back spirit worthy of 
the highest commendation. Most of its members 
were in the service when the war ended, and only 
by sheer pluck and hard work were they able to 
graduate. 

Professor Williams Sounds Warning 

Class Day exercises were opened at 9 :30 A.M. 
when the seniors formed in front of Memorial Hall 
and marched to Chapel for prayer. The late Dr. 
Kemp P. Battle was not there to sound the parting 
admonition to the outgoing graduates, as had been 
his custom for many years in the past. 

Prof. Horace Williams spoke to them this time. 
He called the attention of the graduates to the fact 
that they are at this time face to face with conditions 
of greatest significance and danger, in the depths of 
which are relentless currents seeking to pull people 
under. 

"Be strong," he warned, "for in a similar time 
Christ brought us lessons of supreme hope." 

The world has destroyed countless amounts of the 
earth's wealth and in this period of reconstruction 
the strain, especially on the moral fibre, will be too 
much for the survival of some, he said. 

"In the words of the poet," concluded Professor 
Williams, " 'America is calling today : send me men 
to match my mountains and send me men to match 
my plains.' " 

Class Gift of $1200 

The public exercises were opened in Gerrard Hall 
at 10:30 a. in., Luther H. Hodges, president of the 
senior class, presiding. J. C. Bynum, of Durham, 
presented the class gift, turning over to the Uni- 
versity thro\igh the alumni loyalty fund $1,200 to 
be used for the purchase and installation of a tower 



clock to go in the south building, after this building 
has been remodeled. 

Hodge's Farewell Address 

Luther Hodges, class president, in a short fare- 
well address, well expressed the heart-felt love of the 
.class for alma mater, referring particularly to the 
many members of the class who were absent in ser- 
vice last fall. He likened the seniors to the children 
of a mother who is the University. Before bidding 
farewell to the University and community, President 
Hodges expressed the appreciation of the class of 
the interest and co-operation manifested by the fac- 
ulty and townspeople. 

Mangum Medal Contest 

The meeting was then turned over to President 
H. W. Chase, who conducted the Mangum medal 
oratorical contest. The speakers were R. F. Mose- 
ley, of Clinton, on "Industrial Democracy;" Nathan 
G. Gooding, of New Bern, on "The Advance of a 
Principle;" Luther H. Hodges, of Leaksville, on 
"World Peace or Allied Peace ?" William E. Price, 
of Madison, on "An Honest Practice of a Campus 
Ideal." 

W. E. Price, it was announced on Commencement 
Day, won the Mangum medal. 

Closing Exercises of Class 

The closing exercises of the senior class were held 
under the Davie Poplar at 5 :30 Monday afternoon. 
Seated around the venerable tree in a semi-circle, 
the graduates tied the lasting knots of friendship. 
The scene was a most impressive one. 

The class history was narrated by E. S. Lindsey. 
J. L. Aycock furnished some interesting class sta- 
tistics. W. H. Williamson recited the class poem. 
H. G. West was responsible for making the last will 
and testament of 1910. The task of prophesying 
the class' future was undertaken by W. E. Price. 

Delivery of Campus to Juniors 

The delivery of the campus to the care of the 
juniors was another ceremony that stood out for its 
impressiveness. Following a short and appropriate 
speech by President Hodges, of the seniors, to Presi- 
dent J. P. Washburn, of the juniors, the juniors 
marched into the circle of the seniors and lustily 
cheered the outgoing class.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Di Wins the Debate 

The Dialectic. Literary Society, represented by 
S. H. Willis and R. B. Gwynn, won the com- 
mencement debate which was held on Monday night. 
Mr. Gwynn, who was judged the best speaker on the 
winning side, also won the Bingham medal. 

"Resolved, That with respect to immigration and 
citizenship the United States should accord to the 
citizens of China and Japan the same privileges as 
extended to citizens of European nations," was the 
query debated. 

The Di representatives were opposed by L. W. 
Jarman and T. S. Kittrell, of the Phi Society, who 
championed the negative side of the question. 

John W. Umstead, an alumnus of Greensboro, 
presided over the debate. Forrest Miles served as 
secretary. 

Anniversary Meetings 

The anniversary meetings of the two societies were 
held in the halls of the two respective organizations, 
following the debate. Many alumni members of 
both societies joined in the get-together affairs and 
for several hours the ancient halls resounded with 
the voices of men who took an active part in this 
phase of campus life during their campus days at 
Chapel Hill. The students also had a part on the 
program. 

Short pithy speeches expressing loyalty for the 
literary organizations and appreciation of the bene- 
fits derived therefrom were made by many alumni 
and students. Frequent spurts of good-natured hu- 
mor served to break the ice and make the meetings 
of free-for-all informal nature. 

In the Phi Hall 

Following the gathering in the Phi hall, N. G. 
Gooding, student president, turned over the chair to 
E. A. Council, of Morehead City, '04, who had been 
elected to preside over the meeting. Those speaking 
included Fred Archer, '04, of Greensboro; Judge 
W. P. Harding, '04, of Charlotte ; C. B. Ruffin, '09, 
of Bishopville^S. C. ; D. B. Teague, '10, of Sanford; 
Isaac Wright. '05, of Clinton; Albert M. Coates, '18, 
of Smithfield; R. H. Wright, '97, of Greenville; 
John W. Umstead, '09, of Greensboro; Cyrus 
Thompson, Jr., '11, of Chapel Hill; Benjamin 
Wyche, '94, of Charlotte; Frank Spruill, '07, of 
Lexington; R. F. Moseley, '19, of Clinton; Claude 
Teague, of Wilson; McCauley Costner, '07, of 
Raleigh. 

In the Di Hall 

In the Di hall, President William M. York turned

BACCALAUREATE SERMON BY DR. J. E. WHITE 

The annual baccalaureate sermon, which was 
preached by Rev. John Ellington White, D.D., 
president of Anderson College and pastor of the 
first Baptist Church of Anderson, S. C, formally 
opened the University's 124th Commencement on 
Sunday, June 15. It was one of the most powerful 
discourses ever heard by a Chapel Hill audience 
and made a decidedly profound impression. Dr. 
White was formerly pastor of several churches in 
this State. 

Dr. White chose for his text Acts 17 ; 30 : "The 
times of ignorance therefore God overlooked ; but 
now He commandeth men that they should all every- 
where to repent ; because He hath appointed a day 
in which He will judge the world by that man whom 
He hath sent." 

The theme of the sermon was "Repentance" as 
the indispensable moral necessity of the world's re- 
construction. He made impressive the stern back- 
ground of disorder and disaster and the world-wide 
confusion of civilization, and pointed out the evil 
principles and forces which have wrought their 
logical consequences upon mankind. 

Repentance is Fundamental 

"It is not natural, but moral phenomena," he said, 
"which furnishes the data of interpretation for this 
disastrous epoch. The birds sang blithely in the 
trenches; the flowers bloomed in Flanders fields; 
and nature was not at war. It was from the mind 
and heart of man the devilish emotions proceeded. 
Therefore it is in the minds and hearts of men to- 
day the reconstructive process must arise. Unless 
men change their minds and turn human thought 
and feeling against ideas and ideals which have

brought catastrophe, there is no hope that society 
has any future of safety and progress." 

The refrain of the sermon was "repent, for the 
Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." "But the kingdom 
of hell is also at hand," the preacher declared, "be- 
cause the reaction against paganistic motives and 
materialistic emotions is not positive. At this mo- 
ment the most obtrusive fact is that no one seems 
sure that the world is not plunging on into deeper 
sorrows. Hope sits precariously upon the blood- 
smeared earth playing on her faint harp of one lone 
string. We do hope, and many pray, that civiliza- 
tion will emerge on a friendlier basis with a co- 
operate disposition, but the facts at this hour are 
not reassuring. Hope is not enough, and faith is 
not enough, repentance is the fundamental condition 
which God requires and man must experience before 
there is any solid ground for the feet of civilization. 

Vesper Services Held 

Vesper services, under the auspices of the Y. M. 
( '. A., were conducted at 8 p. m. under the venerable 
Davie Poplar by the Rev. W. D. Moss, of the Chapel 
Hill Presbyterian Church. 

Selecting as his text, "Whosoever shall compel 
thee to go a mile go with him twain," Dr. Moss said 
that life is two things. It is free and it is under 
compulsion. How are we to be free and at the same 
time meet the demands of compulsion ? he asked. 

"Some individuals fight their compulsions and 
do as they please and they wreck their lives. Others 
yield to the stern necessity that is laid upon them 
and become absorbed in the cause. They wreck 
their lives, too. They are creatures of their en- 
vironment, slaves of authority. 

"Jesus Christ called men into the full, glad, free 
life of the spirit. And when we learn to walk in the 
spirit we will both hold our individual desires in 
check and find a place in our experience for all the 
legitimate compulsions that are laid upon us," he 
said. 

"Ours is a great age of compulsion," the minister 
warned. "More than at any time in the past de- 
mands of every nature are going to be made upon 
us. How are we going to meet them ? The only 
hope for us in these most strenuous days is the Gos- 
pel of the spirit that leaves a man bigger in his 
compulsions and in a happy and intelligent mood 
toward the same." 



tion and will be ready for occupation by September, 
according to present plans. This handsome struc- 
ture, which is being erected at a minimum cost of 
$125,000, will be the home of the Electrical and 
Civil Engineering, Physics, and Mathematics de- 
partments. 

Several of the old buildings on the campus will 
also be remodeled and renovated during the summer. 

Plans are under consideration for the erection 
of new dormitories in the immediate future to take 
care of the great influx of students expected. 

Along with this progress in building on the cam- 
pus comes the construction of a new Presbyterian 
Church and post office. Both will be completed be- 
fore September, with a cost of approximately $50,000 
each. 



TO WELCOME FRESHMEN 

This year's freshman class at the State University 
has the distinction and pride of being the initial 
first year class to put into actual operation a move- 
ment on the campus whereby next year's freshmen 
will receive a hearty welcome from the sophomores 
as soon as they land on the Hill, not the "rah-rah" 
sort of greeting that will send the new men shivering 
to their rooms for seclusion, but the kind of welcome 
that will have as its aim the interpretation of life on 
the campus to the raw students and their assimila- 
tion of the "Carolina spirit," as it is termed. 

Not that sophomore classes at the University of 
recent years have entertained malignant designs for 
the first year men. In fact, there has been not a 
single case of hazing on the campus since the tragic 
Rand episode of 1912. And the spirit of the sopho- 
more classes has been termed nothing short of excel- 
lent. 

But the rising sophomore class at a final get-to- 
gether meeting of the year held here in Swain hall 
Saturday night, June 7th, decided unanimously to 
break away from the semi-neutral attitude held to- 
ward the freshmen in the past and instead to ex- 
tend open arms to them from the first moment they 
arrive at the University. 

In other words, each sophomore will appoint him- 
self a committee to look after the new men when they 
come to Chapel Hill next fall, and to help them find 
themselves by co-operating with them in every way 
possible. 

Albert M. Coates started this movement last year.

SOUTH CAROLINA TRUSTEES PAY VISIT 

The board of trustees of the University of South 
Carolina, including Governor R. A. Cooper, visited 
the University on May 24th and 25th for the pur- 
pose of inspecting the University plant and equip- 
ment. President W. S. Currell, of the South Caro- 
lina University, also accompanied the trustees. 

The visiting committee of the University of North 
Carolina board, composed of W. N. Everett, C. G. 
Wright, Graham Kenan and Z. V. Walzer, accom- 
panied by Governor Bickett, met the visitors in 
Chapel Hill and conferred with them. 

Conferences were held with the faculty members, 
when matters pertaining to the organization and ad- 



TRUSTEES HOLD IMPORTANT MEETINGS 

Two unusually important meetings of the Board 
of Trustees were held during commencement week, 
the first in Raleigh, on Monday, June 16th, which 
resulted in the election of Dr. H. W. Chase as presi- 
dent, and the second on Tuesday night at the Uni- 
versity, at which the regular business of the year 
was passed upon. 

Dr. Chase Elected 

Dr. Chase's election followed a prolonged session 
devoted to hearing the report of the special com- 
mittee appointed to investigate the qualifications of 
those suggested to succeed the late President Graham. 
Five hours were consumed in the reading of the re- 
port. During the reading, an opinion was rendered 
by Attorney-General Manning, at the request of 
Governor Bickett, to the effect that in conformity 
with an act passed by the General Assembly of 1909, 
members of the Board were disqualified from hold- 
ing positions in institutions of which they were trus- 
tees. This ruling, which was generally upheld by 
the Board, automatically removed from considera- 
tion the names of Secretary Daniels and Mr. R. D. 
W. Connor, both of whom had been prominently 
mentioned in connection with the position. Upon 
the conclusion of the report, nominations were called 
for, and the first ballot was. taken in which Dr. 
Chase received 26 votes, Dr. Howard Rondthaler 
22, President F. L. McVey, of the University of 
Kentucky, 9, Dr. Archibald Henderson 4, and Dr. 
I. F. Lewis and Herman Harrell Home, 2 each. 
The second ballot resulted in the election of Dr. 
Chase, with 41 votes, and upon the third ballot th« 
choice was made unanimous. 

Meeting at Chapel Hill 

In addition to adoption of the report of the Vis- 
iting Committee, which covered the detailed plans of 
the University for the coming year, the Trustees 
transacted the following business at the Tuesday 
night meeting: 

A committee consisting of President Chase, Gen. 
J. S. Carr, and Maj. John W. Graham, was appointed 
to erect suitable monuments over the graves of the 
late President and Mrs. Graham. 

Governor Bickett was authorized to appoint a com- 
mittee of three Trustees to act with similar commit- 
tees from the alumni and faculty, to provide suitable 
tablets in Memorial Hall in memory of the alumni 
who lost their lives in the world war. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



231 



A committee of three Trustees was appointed to 
act with President Chase and two members of the 
faculty to be selected by the faculty in formulating 
a policy for the use of the Kenan fund. The recom- 
mendations of the committee are to be submitted 
to the Board at the January meeting. R. I). W. 
Connor, Haywood Parker, and J. K. Wilson were 
named as Trustee representatives. 

It was resolved that the University should pro- 
vide for the support, education, and care of Edward 
Kidder Graham, Jr., until he reaches his majority. 
President Chase, M. C. S. Noble, Josephus Daniels, 
R. D. W. Connor, and W. N. Everett were appointed 
to formulate plans for the carrying out of the resolu- 
tion. 

Governor Bickett was authorized to appoint a 
committee of five Trustees to co-operate with a com- 
mittee from the faculty to make necessary arrange- 
ments for the inauguration of President Chase. 

The committees of which Col. J. Bryan Grimes 
and John Sprunt Hill, respectively, have been chair- 
men, and which have been devoting attention to the 
development of University grounds, were combined 
into one, to which President Chase and C. T. Wool- 
Jen were added. The new committee was authorized 
to employ a landscape engineer and carry forward 
such plans for the future growth of the University 
as seemed advisable. 

Resolutions of respect to the memory of the late 
Marvin Hendrix Stacy were presented and spread 
upon the minutes of the Board. 



R. O. T. C. AT UNIVERSITY 

Maj. E. W. Boye, who has been detailed by the 
government to establish the Reserve Officers' Train- 
ing Corps, has arrived on the Hill and is busily en- 
gaged in making the preliminary arrangements pre- 
paratory to putting the unit into full operation next 
fall. 



TO ESTABLISH SCHOOL OF COMMERCE 
AND FINANCE 

Beginning its operation next fall, a School of 
Commerce and Finance will be established at the 
University. The School of Commerce is a feature 
that has been needed for a long time. Many stu- 
dents desiring courses which would be in the direct 
line of the business in which they expected to en- 
gage have found only meager facilities at the Uni- 
versity for life preparation. The new School of 
Commerce and Finance will include the present De- 
partments of Economics and of Rural Economies 
and Sociology, and will offer all the courses now of- 



fered in these departments, in addition to a large 
number of specialized courses. The particular heads 
under which these new courses will come are those 
of Business Organization and Management, Account- 
ing, and Commerce and Marketing. 



GRAHAM MEMORIAL FUND REACHES 
HALF-WAY GOAL 

It was announced at Commencement by Secretary 
Albert M. Coates that $70,000 had already been sub- 
scribed to the Graham Memorial Fund. The larger 
towns of the State, including Charlotte, Raleigh, 
Durham, Asheville, Wilmington, and Greensboro, 
have not yet launched the movement, although plans 
for pushing it to a speedy and successful close are 
being formulated in each instance. 

Every local director in each community is being 
strongly urged to make a thorough canvass as early 
as possible. Those alumni who do not get in touch 
with the directors are requested to make individual 
subscriptions by mail or in person to Secretary 
Coates. 

With $70,000 already subscribed, the half-way 
mark of the $150,000 goal has been practically 
reached. The fact that the majority of the directors 
have not yet sent in their reports apparently gives 
confident assurance that the amount asked for will 
be overscribed. 



SUMMER SCHOOL HAS LARGE ATTENDANCE 

The 32nd session of the University Summer 
School, under the direction of Dr. Walker, opened 
on June 24th with every indication of the most suc- 
cessful term in its history. 

As The Review goes to press, the registration 
stands at 875. Many more students will be coming 
in during the six weeks' term, and the total registra- 
tion for the session is expected to go beyond the 
1,000 mark. 



UNIVERSITY ALUMNI BUY "CITIZEN" 

The Asheville Citizen, Asheville's morning news- 
paper, was purchased by three prominent Univer- 
sity alumni on March 1st, namely, George Stephens, 
'96, of Charlotte; Chas. A. Webb, '89, of Asheville; 
and Haywood Parker, '87, of Asheville. Mr. Ste- 
phens is a capitalist of Charlotte, and Mr. Webb is 
United States Marshal, while Mr. Parker is an at- 
torney of Asheville. 



The University will have a Public Health Officer 
next year.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 



A fitting memorial to the late Edward Graham, 
which in itself serves as a monument to his thinking 
and his labors, is the volume appearing with the 
title "Education and Citizenship and Other Papers" 
(G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York and London, 
1919). The selection of the contents and the gen- 
eral work of editing was done by Dr. L. R. Wilson, 
with the assistance of Professors H. W. Chase and 
Edwin Greenlaw. The volume is prefaced with a 
brief but appropriate introduction by President Ed- 
win A. Alderman, of the University of Virginia. 
The contents of the volume readily fall under four 
headings : Education and Democracy, Culture and 
Citizenship, Student and College Relations, Occa- 
sional Papers. No extended or detailed review of 
the volume seems necessary in this publication, when 
so many of President Graham's utterances have al- 
ready found publication during the years of his en- 
ergetic leadership here, as dean, acting-president, 
and president. Suffice it to say that the volume, as 
it stands, is a vision of the mind and heart of the 
young scholar and clean thinker, who wrought out 
his philosophy in his life and made his ideals of 
education prevail in an extraordinarily vigorous and 
enduring fashion. His fundamental and expressed 
ideal was to plan the University "in harmony with 
the spirit of modern democracy;" and these finely- 
chiseled essays amply demonstrated the persistence 
of his efforts and the fidelity of bis impulses in 
translating the ideal into a harmonious and well- 
ordered realitv. 



An article of unusual interest, original, provoca- 
tive, and full of "dynamite," is "Reconstructing the 
Ph.D. in English," by Professor Norman Foerster, 
of the English Department (The Nation, Spring 
Educational Supplement, May 10, 1919). The ar- 
ticle is significant of the reconstruction spirit which 
is abroad in the land today; and challenges atten- 
tion by the vigor of its indictments and the revolu- 
tionary nature of its proposals. The author divides 
men into three classes : the scientific investigator, 
the dilettante, and the humanist. In his view, the 
new era calls most, not for the first two, but for 
the last ; and an outline for the studies and disci- 
pline, according to the humanistic standard, is briefly 
sketched. The groundwork for the candidate's train- 
ing is found chiefly — more than half of it — in the 
English Department; and the remainder in such 
subjects as Philosophy, History, the Classics, Com- 
parative Literature, and Modern Languages other 
than English. The thesis is posited to be a "critical 
dissertation, giving proof of the candidate's wide 
and well-assimilated reading and, especially, of his 
ability to think, of his love of ideas." There is every 
reason to believe that the suggestions contained in 
this article will provoke thought and wide discus- 
sion. 



In the National Magazine for April, 1919, there 
is an interesting and stimulating article, fully illus- 
trated, entitled "The Father of Rural Credits in 
North Carolina." The author is Mr. S. R. Winters, 
now head of the Washington Bureau of the Raleigh 
Neivs and Observer. The article is an appreciation 
of Mr. John Sprunt Hill, of Durham, and an esti- 
mate of his labors in North Carolina since 1903, 
principally with reference to his work in fathering 
a chain of co-operating farmers' credit societies in 
this State.

CITATIONS 
Ernest Graves, '00 

— Awarded the distinguished service cross by General 
Pershing. He is a native of Chapel Hill. Holds the rank of 
colonel. The citation follows: 

"Col. Ernest Graves — For exceptional meritorious conduit 
and distinguished services. He was charged with the construc- 
tion of the Gievres storage depot and later was appointed 
engineer officer of the Intermediate Section, Services of Sup- 
ply, where he was placed in charge of all construction projects 
west of Bourges. As engineer officer of Base Section No. 2, 
and of the Advance Section S.O.S., he performed the duties 
with which he was instructed in a conspicuously meritorious 
manner. In the many responsible capacities in which he was 
employed, the performance of his duty was characterized by 
sound judgment and inspiring zeal." 

John E. Ray, '08 

— Awarded, posthumously, the distinguished service cross for 
heroic conduct during an attack in the Bellicourt area, in 
which he was killed while rendering aid to liis stricken com- 
rades. He was a member of the 119th infantry of the 30th 
division. 

Mrs. Ray has lately received from Claude W. Allen of 
Creedmoor a letter giving further particulars of her son's 
death. "I was with him when he was wounded," wrote the 
Creedmoor man, "and carried him in my arms into a tunnel, 
where, with one more, we dressed his wound and carried him 
back through shell fire to where the ambulance could take 
him." 

"I don't believe," said the letter from Mr. Allen, "you will 
grieve over his death when I tell you what a noble death he 
died and what a great cause he was engaged in. Right in the 
front, going over the top, giving his life to relieve and aid 
suffering men, he was known to all of us as a fearless man 
when duty called him. ' ' 

According to Mr. Allen, Captain Ray was wounded on 
September 30 and not on September 29, as Mrs. Ray supposed. 
On this Allen writes : ' ' He was wounded about 6 o 'clock on 
September 30, on the main Hindenburg line, about three hun- 
dred yards to the left of Bellicourt. We w r ent over the top 
on Sunday morning, September 29, at 5:50. We broke and 
captured the Hindenburg line and were using the tunuel that 



you heard so much talk of as an aid station when Captain Ray 
was wounded. He stepped out of the tunnel to show a friend 
of his to headquarters when we heard him call us. We looked 
and saw him fall about ten feet away. I rushed to him, took 
him in my arms and brought him back in the tunnel, where we 
dressed his wound.'' 

Joseph Henry Johnston, '10 

— Awarded the distinguished service cross, posthumously, 
recently. Lieutenant Johnston was killed in action in France 
on October 15. 

Benjamin H. Bunn, '10 

— Awarded the croix de guerre for extraordinary bravery 
displayed in action. Lieutenant Bunn was with the 371st 
infantry, which figured most conspicuously in the campaign of- 
fensive of September 25, 1918, although the regiment lost 67 
per cent in casualties. That its bravery and prowess, its spirit 
of sacrifice was recognized by the French is attested by the 
fact that the regiment was cited as a whole for extraordinary 
heroism. The regimental flag was decorated by the French on 
February 1, at Brest, on the eve of the departure for home. 

Lieutenant Bunn was commissioned at Fort Oglethorpe in 
the initial officers ' training camp. He went to Camp Jackson 
and there trained the colored boys for duty overseas. The regi- 
ment embarked for France in April, 1918, and in due time 
reached the port of Brest. 

Robert Bruce Mason, '13 

— Awarded French croix de guerre. He is at present a first 
lieutenant of the third machine gun battalion, first division, 
American expeditionary forces, and is with the army of occu- 
pation in Germany. 

Newspaper articles and letters signed by commanding of- 
ficers show that Lieutenant Mason distinguished himself in no 
small degree. He was especially gallant in the Argonne forest 
battle and wears the French croix de guerre as a token of the 
appreciation felt by the French army officers. 

At the end of a citation for the Durham boy, C. A. Davis, 
major, 3rd machine gun battalion, in a few words tells the 
story of gallantry. They are as follows : 

' ' Recommended for captaincy. 

' ' Recommended for a distinguished service cross. 

' ' Recommended for a croix de guerre. ' ' 

The citation reads as follows: 

"The battalion commander cites the following officer for 
marked efficiency and devotion to duty: 

"First Lieut. Robert B. Mason, third machine gun bat- 
talion, first division, American expeditionary forces. 

"An officer of marked efficiency, zeal and loyalty. Has 
throughout his service in the division shown himself a model 
of soldiery character and has, in the discharge of his duties 
as a platoon commander, at all times given proof of the charac- 
teristics that have marked the best officers of the third ma- 
chine gun battalion and the first division, to wit : loyalty, 
self-denial, zeal and efficiency. ' ' 

William John Hoover, '16 

— Awarded the French croix de guerre with palm and dis- 
tinguished service cross, the former for heroic conduct dis- 
played in action on the battle front on July 2, 1918, and the 
latter for bravery in aerial combat with the famous Richthofen 
circus on the western front. He entered the first Oglethorpe 
camp in May, 1917, and was sent to Toronto to a Canadian 
flying school, where he won his commission in the aviation

service. He went early to France. Captain Hoover is now 
stationed at Rockwell Field, Coronado, Cal., 952 " I " avenue. 
His citation and decoration order reads: 

"The commander-in-chief, in the name of the President, has 
awarded the distinguished service cross to the following named 
officer for the act of extraordinary heroism described after 
his name : 

"First Lieut. William Jack Hoover, aviation section, 27th 
aero squadron. For extraordinary heroism in action near 
Verdilly, France, July 2, 1918. On the morning of July 2 his 
flight patrol encountered the famous Richthofen circus. Lieut. 
Hoover was simultaneously attacked by three of the enemy 
and cut off from his comrades. By skilfully maneuvering he 
avoided the effects of their concentrated fire and fearlessly 
attacked the three. Although his machine was seriously dam- 
aged, he killed one of the enemy pilots and destroyed his 
plane, drove down another, apparently out of control, and 
chased the third far into his own lines. He then continued 
the patrol until shortage of gasoline forced him to return. ' ' 

James A. Hardison, Jr., '16 

— Cited for extraordinary bravery in action in the fighting 
around Verdun. He attended the first Oglethorpe camp and 
was assigned to the 81st division. He holds the rank of first 
lieutenant. 

Noel Edward Patton, '17 

— Awarded the distinguished service cross for extraordinary 
heroism displayed in action. The citation reads : 

"Sergeant Noel E. Patton, Company A, 344th battalion, tank

near Woel, France, September 14, 1918. While on a recon- 
naissance patrol under heavy machine gun fire Sergeant Patton

with one arm useless, attempted to render aid while he was 
himself suffering from loss of blood. Home address, Mrs. J. L.

PRESIDENT 



— E. E. Sams resigned his position with the State Depart- 
ment of Education in May to take up law practice with his 
uncle, A. F. Sams. He went to the department as chief clerk 
in 1911 and then succeeded to the position of teacher training. 

1899 
H. M. Wagstaff, Secretary, Chapel Hill, N. C. 

— This is to inform the members of 1899 who were absent 
at the reunion, June 15-18, that you were unfortunate in not 
being here. Twenty-six of us answered the roll-call, and our 
great pleasure at being together was dampened only by your 
absence. Nevertheless, we knew you were present in spirit, 
and not a name went uncanvassed or failed of a strong 
thought-wave for your welfare. The fine spirit of fellowship 
which always characterized our class proved to have lost nonj 
of its vigor. Palm-pressure was no mere formality among the 
men of '99. Not a man but felt his spirit refreshed by the 
contact with his fellows. We found our alma mater bigger 
and better, but that to go on to higher service still she needs 
our individual and collective forethought and loyalty supreme. 

Our class president, J. S. Carr, Jr., marshalled our strength 
at the alumni luncheon, and, with the wives present, we 
made no mean representation at that gathering. T. Gilbert 
Pearson served brilliantly as our spokesman, adroitly diverting 
the great audience to the moods of nature and the didoes of 
birds. 

At a largely attended class eaucus it was unanimously agreed 
that our quarter-century reunion in 1924 must be made the 
greatest ever. Also the class mug to the oldest boy was 
awarded to Bryan Grimes, aged 13 years, 10 months and 27 
days, son of June Grimes, attorney, Washington, N. C. This 
gift will go forward in due course. Other class matters were 
attended to at this meeting, of which the secretary will in- 
form you by ordinary process. 

Altogether for the next mile-post in 1924!

The Story of Your Study Lamp 

IF you were studying by an old smoky oil lamp and suddenly a 
modern, sun-like MAZDA lamp were thrust into the room, the 
contrast would be dazzling. That instant would unfold the 
result of thirty years' development, research and manufacturing 
in electric lighting. 




And this development commenced 
with Edison's first lamp — hand-made, 
when electricity was rare. 

The General Electric Company was a 
pioneer in foreseeing the possibilities 
of Edison's invention. Electric gene- 
rators were developed. Extensive ex- 
periments led to the design and con- 
struction of apparatus which would 
obtain electric current from far-away 
waterfalls and deliver it to every city 
home. 

With power lines well distributed over 
the country, the use of electric light- 
ing extended. Street lighting de- 
veloped from the flickering arc to the

great white way. Electric signs and 
floodlights made our cities brilliant at 
night, searchlights turned night into 
day at sea, and miniature lamps were 
produced for the miner's headlight 
and automobile. 

While the making of the electrical in- 
dustry, with its many, many inter- 
ests, was developing, the General 
Electric Company's laboratories con-

"HE WAS A GOOD FRIEND 

—BUT A POOR EXECUTOR" 

One often hears that comment. Settling an estate successfully calls for more than good 
intentions. Principally it calls for years of "knowing how." 

Our own considerable success in settling estates springs from long practical experience — 
coupled with personal kindly consideration for the families of those who leave their affairs in our 
hands. 

Our officers will be glad to confer with you in regard to any trust or banking matters you 
may have in mind.
