Cy Thompson Says — 

Today as Never Before 

the average man is buying Life Insurance. New insurance written by all good companies in 
lltin is equivalent to one-fourth of the total volume in force in 1918. It exceeds all the insur- 
ance in force in 1901. 

The first-chartered purely mutual American life insurance company had a glorious year. 
Its 1919 business increased nearly 90 per cent over the business of the year before. Its mortal- 
ity experience was the lowest in 51 years. 

The 1920 contracts and service carry the principle of mutuality to the logical and absolute 
limit. We offer the only perfectly mutual policy. This is a broad statement : but thorough in- 
vestigation will prove it. 

Before you contract to buy life insurance, or accept an agency contract, let us demonstrate 
what we mean by "Perfection in Protection." An opportunity awaits you.

Number 8 


llt'iiry W. (irady, in the recent eighteen seventies 
and eighties, gave elo([uent enrrency throiighoiit 
America to the expression The New Sontii. 
President Out of the wreck of The Okl .South he saw, 
Chase and taught tlie nation to see, the mergence 

of the new. In the nineties and early 
nineteen hundreds the hite "Walter Hines Page and E. 
(JardiKM- Murphy, together with distinguished edu- 
cational leaders, fixed the attention of the nation on 
what they were pleased to term The Present South. 
The Old has forever passed. The New, as conceived 
bv Grady, has established itself and grown into The 

On Wednesda.v, April 28th, while assuming, in the 
presence of student body, faculty, alumni, and a host 
of distinguished visitors, the duties of his high office 
as tenth president of the University of North Caro- 
lina, Harry Woodburn Chase pledged himself and 
this "ancient mother of free men" to the material 
uplniilding, the spiritual enrichment of the State 
which nourishes her and The Future South in whose 
destinies she is to play a signal part. 


In assuming the solemn duties of his high office, at 
a moment that as truly marks the beginning of a new 

era as that ushered in by the ending of 
The Future the Civil War, an era predicted by the 
South late President Graham to be the most 

momentoiis educationally in America's 
history, President Chase pledged himself and the T'ni- 
versity, with high confidence, to the realization of 
the following splendid ideal : 

As the mind swings forward into the years which 
lie ahead, years big with destiny for the South, con- 
viction deepens that out of all this creative energy, 
this confidence and faith, there is to come something 
infinitely greater and finer than a giant essay in ma- 
terialism : that here a new civilization is to take form 
and substance, a civilization which blends into 
one harmonious and happy whole the best that is 
Southern by inheritance and tradition with the best 
that the new material freedom afl'ords. The problem 
of achieving this civilization is the problem which lies 
at the heart of Southern life today. It is a prolilem 
which is to be solved, not by the mere imitation of that 
to which men have hitherto adhered in their common 

life, by a faithful but uninspired retracing of the old 
familiar lights and shadow's, but through such a lib- 
eration of the spirits of men that, reverent but un- 
afraid, they shall catch up in their own hands the 
threads of destiny and weave them into a pattern 
richer and finer than America has yet seen. 


The challenge of the South to the Southern State 
I'niversit.v today is that she show herself worthy of 

leadership in this great construc- 
The Southern tive enterprise, this the woi'ld's 

State University latest attempt to evolve a new and 

higher civilization. Such a chal- 
lenge she can meet by no merely perfunctory re- 
sponse. It is for her passionately and reverently to 
dedicate herself and all of herself to this great task, 
to set about it, not in the spirit which would disci- 
pline men into obedient and unthinking servants of 
some rigidly preconceived mechanical and authorita- 
tive state, which holds the lives and souls of men as 
mere instruments to its calculated ends ; but in the 
sjnrit of the democracy she serves, that spirit which 
sets men truly free to embody in ever higher and 
jiobler forms the best that is in their hopes and 
dreams and prayers. 

For such a full liberation of all men, in body, ranid 
and spirit, is the very heart of the program of de- 
mocracy. It holds, with Burke, that government is 
not for its own sake, but a contrivance of human wis- 
dom to provide for what men want, and it ndds, as 
has been finely said from this platform, the faitli that 
"with the right to live freel.v, men will live rightly ;"" 
that between what free and enlightened men really 
want and the deepest and highest interests of ihe 
democratic state there is no contradiction, but a full 
identity. Unrest and dissension within, it would hold 
that it cannot hope permanently to meet by the ini- 
l)osition of repressive authority, but that, true to its 
creed that the only control that is ultimately worth 
while is self-control, it must j)ress with new vigor its 
etfort to set men really free, not from responsibility, 
but tlirough it. 


It is the achievement of such a responsible freed(nn 
which is the common business of education and of the 
democratic state. In siich a pro- 
The University's gram all institutions of education. 
Objective of whatever grade or name, how- 

ever founded or supported, find 
a connniin jmrpose and an aim which joins them as 
brothers each to each, and makes of all their learners 
and teachers one great couipany enlisted in the same 
high cause. 



In sueli a spirit the University eagerly and rever- 
ently consecrates the utmost of her ]iowers toward the 
upbuilding on this soil of a civilization which shall be, 
not merely prosperous, but free, and because of its 
freedom, great and enduring : a civilization which 
shall fuse in one great creative synthesis the best in 
both old and new, a civilization in which more and 
more men shall do justly, shall love mercy, and shall 
walk humbly with their God. 

A))art from the high seriousness of the ceremonial 
of dedication to this great adventure, the inaugural 
proceedings produced three profound 
Spiritually impressions. 

Prepared Of these, the tirst and by far the most 

significaut was that of the spiritual 
readiness of the University for this supreme task. 
Within the recent past her attitude to her environ- 
ment, her conception of her duty to the State and the 
nation have undergone those fundamentally essential 
changes which fit her, not merely to minister to fixed 
groups along long-established lines, but also to di- 
rect the full current of her life instantly in those di 
rections where greatest need appears. The conception 
of her function, boldly proclaimed by her late head, 
places her in the first line of preparedness to serve 
the new day. 

The second was that of unqualified recognition on 
the iiart of American educators of her fine achieve- 
ment and undisputed position of leadership among 
those institutions which will have the iirincipal jiart 
in this vast undertaking, a fact doubly attested by the 
presence and warmth of greetings of scores of repre- 
sentatives of other state and national institutions. 

The third, and of chief est concern to the alumni 
and North C!arolinians in particular, was that of the 
absolute necessity of instant and complete compre- 
hension of the material requirements of the University 
if her arm is to be sufficiently strengthened to main- 
tain her distinctive position of leadership and to 
play to the limit the beneficent part for which she is 
spiritually ready. 


The Review has advisedly presented this third im- 
pression last because it wishes if possible to drive it 
deep into the minds of all who, with Presi- 
Support dent Chase, would have Alma Mater be 
Required the one great state university to minister 
to The Future South. To do this re- 
quires instant and complete siipport. 

First of all it means that instantly the drive which 
other institutions (with salary scales ranging a thou- 
sand or more dollars higher than the University's) 

are now making for our faculty members, must be 
answered with funds sufficient to meet the compe- 

Again, it means that President Chase must be en- 
abled to go into this highly competitive market and 
recruit his teaching staff not with mediocrity, but 
with the highest scholarship and personality avail- 

Furthermore, it means that a building program con- 
ceived of in the terms of a billion dollar State be im- 
mediately projected that will adequately provide the 
physical foundation for this great undertaking. 

And finally, it means that all North Carolina, in a 
spirit of sympathy and helpfulness, must come not 
half-heartedly, but with full confidence, to the com- 
plete support of Alma Mater in this hour of her op- 
portimity and destiny. 


Once more debaters from the high schools of North 

Carolina have carried through to a brilliant conclus- 

i(m a final debating contest — the 

The Significance one recently held being the eighth 

of the Debates conducted under the auspices of 

the High School Debating Union. 

The Review refers to the recent contest, admittedly 
the finest of the eight, in which the finals ranked well 
up to the average of inter-collegiate debating, not 
merely for the sake of recording the event, but par- 
tieularl.^- to point out the constructive contribution 
which the Union has consciously or unconsciously 
made to present day North Carolina citizenship. 

Within the eight years eight questions have been 
debated and thousands of North Carolinians have 
been enabled to hear clean-cut discussions of eight 
fundamental questions. When considered separately, 
their individual bearing on North Carolina citizenship 
may not have been apparent, but it has been none the 
less so. 

Woman suffrage, the first query debated, is the 
dominant subject in North Carolina today. Ship sub- 
sidies has taken on definite meaning for North Caro- 
lina through the development of ship yards in a num- 
ber of eastern Carolina cities and the projected estab- 
lishment of Southern ports. North Carolina boys 
have served in an enlarged navy and under universal 
military training laws, and have witnessed the en- 
actment of laws providing temporarily for govern- 
mental management of the railways and the settle- 
ment of industrial disputes through governmental 
agencies. Last of all, word comes that- the Loray Mills, 
of Gastonia, the largest in Gaston Coimty, have been 
]uirchased by a New England company which contem- 



plates the displaeemeut of tlir present laboi' by trans- 
ferring foreigners now resilient in New En;j,!iincl to 
the South and by bringing in others from Europe. 
Thus the subject of immigration restriction, yester- 
day only of academic interest, becomes, for Gaston, 
one of the vital (juestions of the hour. 


The Review had quite a good deal to say in its last 
issue about underwriting worth while ideas. It re- 
turns to the subject again, not to argue 
The Under- the point further, but to report 
writers progress. 

The Raleigh Masque, tra la, will be 
properly staged in the City of the Oaks ere the coming 
of tlie frost — that is, about University Day, 1920. 
We understand that from some quarter the Woman's 
Club of that city (which is to assume responsibility 
for tlie presentation) lias been assured of a wholly 
adequate financial backing. So that matter is happily 

At the same time The Review records the fact that 
an alumnu.s down in the east verj- modestly wrote 
the pi'ofessor of dramatic literature that he knew an 
alumnus who would write the necessary check. The 
modesty of the gentleman restrains us from mention- 
ing his name, but his action is appreciated a thou- 
sand fold even though someone else vmderwrote the 
proposition first. 

The North Carolina Federation of Women's Clubs 
also placed their signature on the dotted line to the 
amount of $400 to be used in sending a woman to the 
new school of Public Welfare to be established at the 
University in September. The Federation thus sig- 
nally commends the University for entering the field 
of social service and places one student on the rolls of 
the new department. 

The Universitj- of North Carolina is one of the two 
or three state universities that still demand tuition 
from native students. Therefore foundations for 
scholarships which will make easier the coming of 
worthy young men to the University are still in order. 
Late in April E. R. Buehan, 1911, of Sanford, sent a 
check for $1,000 the income from which is to provide 
a scholarship to be used by a student specializing in 
philosophy. The gift was made in memory of his late 
wife and as a tribute to his former teacher. Profes- 
sor H. H. Williams. 

So far, splendid. But the $2,000 for the University 
Press, the $1,000 or $5,000 for the library of the 
School of Commerce, the six $1,000 checks for a dozen 
fellowships in the Graduate School, and the numerous 
other checks of like denomination to be applied for 

the hundred and one things required on the campus 
but \\hich cannot be extracted from an inescapable 
deficit, why, they haven't come yet! 


Tlie campaign for a $250,000 hotel for Chapel Hill 

is in. iMessrs. Clem G. Wright, John Sprunt Hill, 

John W. I'mstead, Jr., and W. S. Rober- 

Put Ycur son have filed application for a charter 

Fist Kcrc and the machiuerj- for selecting a site, for - 

financing the proposition and for draft- 
ing plans and details of the building has been set 

In taking ;"iis step, these four gentlemen demon- 
strated fine alumni statesmanship. They have put 
their combined fingers on a jiarticular need of the 
University, long recognized, but now distressingly 

It is not The Review's purpose to particularize as 
to this need. It is sufficient to say that' the lack of 
such an up-to-date hostelry as is contemplated makes 
the isolation of the University for University guests, 
visitors, organizations interested in short courses, and 
institutes, conventions, etc., practically, if not abso- 
lutely, complete. No alumnus needs to be told that if 
he returns to visit his Alma Mater, either for the sake 
of communing again with her or to participate in 
planning for her future welfare, unlike the foxes 
which have holes and the fowls of the air whieh have 
nests, he has no place to lay his head. 

Here, then, in a word, is the big opportunity for 
alumni to invest in stock that will pay, yes, we mean 
it — pay. And that too, in three sorts of coin: (1) 
Actual cash dividends; (2) Opportunities for getting 
back to the campus, either for the renewal of mem- 
ories Of for constructive alumni statesmanship ; and 
( 3 ) Means wherebj- Carolina may abridge an isolation 
between herself and the representatives or organiza- 
tions of the State which she desires to serve, which is 
well nigh fatal. 

Here, gentlemen, is an idea — not a vague, anaemic, 
academic conception, but an honest-to-goodness com- 
mon-sense, business men's humdinger. The price — 
$100 a share. The time to underwrite — now ! 


Princeton University has recently resorted to a 
novel plan of eontinuing the post-graduate education 

of its alumni. At intervals of 
How Do You about two weeks it is i-ssuing 

Like This Menu? through its professors lectures, 

the purpose of which is to keep 
the alumni abreast of the later developments in the 
various fields of college work so that new discoveries, 



new applications (if okl theories, new theories wliich 
displace those familiar to the graduate from his col- 
lege days, new developments in economics, .sociology, 
or polities, as well as in literature, history or science. 
This is most excellent — for Priucetonians who have 
pnshed their endowment campaign for fourteen mil- 
lions well on to completion. But The Review believes 
the following bill of fare should be provided Carolina 
men — particularly at this moment of Carolina's i^ress- 
ing financial need : 

(1) On March '.il the legislature of Mississippi 
passed an appropriation bill by the terms of which the 
L'niversity of that state will receive approximately 
$700,000 for buildings and equipment and over 
$300,000 for maintenance. Like Carolina, it is seji- 
arate from the A. and E. college. 

(2) The alumni association of the University of 
Georgia has begun a drive for an endowment fiunl of 

(3) The I^niversity of Alabama has recently com- 
jileted a woman's building at a cost of $250,000 — one 
item in a building program of $1,000,000. 

(4) Within the past two weeks a North Carolina 
city school board jilaced the salary of its superintend- 
ent at $4.500 — $!)U0 more than the maximum salary 
received by membei-s of the faculty other than Kenan 

(5) Salary scales for full professors have recently 
been annoimced as follows : Columbia University, 
$8,000 to $10,000; Harvard and Yale, $6,000 to 
$8,000; Western Reserve, $6,000 (minimum) ; Haver- 
ford College, $5,000. Stephens College (a college for 
women at Columbia, Mo.), has just elected a new 
dean at a salary of $10,000 and a professor of religious 
education (a woman) at a salary of $5,300. The 
dean is also to be provided a fund of $5,000 a year 
for educational research. The president of the Uni- 
versity of Michigan will get $18,000 in 1920-21. 

(6) North Carolina stands fourth among the forty- 
eight states in the production of crop wealth. In 
1919 it produced crop values amomiting to $683,784,- 
000. It checked out from the State Treasurer to the 
University for maintenance for the year ending June 
30, 1919, $194,166. Texas produced crops worth 
$1,076,163,000 and gave its university $839,365. 
Iowa raised $861,338,000 worth of farm products and 
stood by its ITniversity to the amount of $1,050,500. 
Illinois came third with $813,164,000 and put 
$2,056,933 into the support of the University (the 
A. & E. included) at Urbana. 

Educationally, Xorlli Carolina is facing a ])nif(iun(l 
riisis. Seven hundred of her schools failed to open 
during 1919-20 because of lack of teach- 
A Great ers. Only one-sixth of the 12,500 

Conference teachers employed had certificates indi- 
cating standard preparation, and more 
than 5,000 who taught failed to measure up to the 
minimum requii'ements laid down by the State Board 
of Examiners. 

Such was the startling story unfolded at the big 
educational conference held at Greensboro May 4 
and 5 — a conference participated in by hundreds of 
North Carolinians and far the most imjiortant held in 
North Carolina in a generation. 

The situation with which the State is confronted 
today is, in all seriousness, thoroughly alarming, and 
if it is properly met it \\ ill call for wisdom and educa- 
tional statesmansliii) not uidike that of a generation 
ago when North Carolina first woke up to the need of 
universal education. 

In this critical hour, Caroliiui must not be looked to 
in vain, either on the campus or among the alumni, 
or anywhere where her officers or sons may lead the 
wa^' or serve. 


Carolina debaters won both sides of their 1i-iangu- 
lar contest with Johns Hopkins and Washinglon and 
Lee, Mlay 1st. The ([uery was: "Resolved, That a 
system of universal military training for young men 
should be adopted by the United States." Daniel L. 
Grant, of Snead's Ferry, and Robert B. Gwynn, of 
Leaksville, upheld the affirmative against Washington 
and Lee, and T. C. Taylor, of Sparta, and John H. 
Kerr, Jr., of Warrenton, the negative against Hop- 

Captain Beemer Harrell, of the football team, com- 
pleted in April a six weeks' spring football practice 


Oscar A. Hamilton, of the class of 1910, at pres- 
ent superintendent of the Goldsboro schools, has been 
elected superintendent of the Wilmington city sdiools 
and the New Hanover county schools. Mv. Hamil- 
ton will take up his new work in Wilmington at the- 
end of the present school year. 

Mr. Hamilton has been engaged in school work 
since his graduation in 1910. He was for several 
years principal of the Hemenway school in Wilming- 
ton. He resigned this position to become representa- 
tive in this State of the American Book Co. Later he 
became principal of the Greensboro high school, and 
one year ago he was elected superintendent of the 
Goldsboro schools. In college he was a star baseball 
player, and was captain of the 1909 team. 




In Presence of Large Gathering He Takes Oath of Office and 
DeHvers Inaugural Address 

Surroiindod by a notable gatheriii"' of eduL-atioiuil 
leaders and facing 2,500 North L'aroliniaus in Mem- 
orial Hall, Harry Woodburn Chase on the afternoon 
of April 28 repeated after Chief Justiee Walter Clark 
the oath of offiee and received from (Jovernor Thomas 
W. Bickett the seal and charter now entrtisted to him 
as tenth ]iresident of the University. 

"Wherever and in whatever form it is our privi- 
lege to see the need," said President Chase after the 
Chief Justice, "I pledge the l^niversity to impartial 
and sympathetic service to the people of the State, so 
help me God,'" and raising a Bible to his lips, he 
kissed it, while the audience liroke into waves of 

On one side of the new ])residciit on the platfurni 
as he was formally inducted into office were the rep- 
resentatives of more than 100 colleges, universities, 
and learned societies ; on the other side the members 
of the University faculty where he himself had been 
for the past 10 years. All were chid in the academic 
cap and gown, and their many-shaded hoods lent a 
fine display of life and color to the high sweep of his- 
toric Memorial Hall. Secretary .losephus Daniels, 
who presided at the dinner at night, stood just to the 
left of the new president as he took the oath of office. 

Speaking from the same platform from which Pres- 
iilent Chase delivered his inaugural address (jirinted 
elsewhere in this issue) were President A. Lawrence 
Lowell, of Harvard, President -John Crier Hibbeii of 
Princeton, and Dr. Charles R. Maim, of the General 
Staff, all of whom in their discussions of "The 
Higher Education and Its Present Task,"" pledged to 
the new i)resident their support in his new duties. 

President Lowell in liis address argued against me- 
chanical methods in education, warned against too 
strong stress upon ilegrees as such and too long a 
period of i)reparatory study, and saw ])romise in the 
psychological tests used in the Army because they 
measured the individual by what he was rather than 
iiy what he had been through. President Hibbcn, 
after tracing the influence of Princeton (m early edu- 
cation in the South, called on modern educators to 
retain the spirit of humanity which inspired the pio- 
neers. Dr. Mann"s address was centered aroimd a 
plea for more definitely practical work in colleges. 

Following the inaugural address, greetings were 

extended to President Chase from mauj- educational 
groups. Dr. Ivey F. Lewis, of the University of Vir- 
ginia, speaking in the absence of President Alder- 
man, pledged the good wishes of the state imiversities 
of the comitry. President W. L. Poteat, of Wake 
Forest, speaking for the colleges of the State, told the 
new president that "we pledge to you the adventure 
and romance of finding the way of right in a fogg.v 
time and calling after you the strength and hope of 
young North Carolina." Superintendent of Public 
Listruction E. C. Brooks, for the public school system, 
declared that "we are all with you." 

W. N. Everett, '86, speaking for the alumni, re- 
lated in detail how the trustees' committee, following 
the successive deaths of President Graham and Dean 
Stacy, had sought for a new leader and found him 
in President Chase. "The alumni bid me say," he 
told President Chase, "That they have looked upon 
your work and fouiul it good ; that on this arch they 
set their hopes and build their faith for a greater uni- 
versity." Emerson White, a member of the senior 
class, promised the support of the students now and 
when they become alumni, and Dr. Archibald Hen- 
derson, for the faculty, pledged their support to their 
former colleague. Bishop Joseph B. Cheshire opened 
and closed the exercises with prayer. 

Weather conditions, following two da.vs of rain, 
were ideal for the day, and when the giant academic 
procession formed in the vicinity of the Alumni Build- 
ing at 1 :00 o'clock the sun was streaming through 
the trees and the air was crisp and pleasant. Headed 
b.v the University branch of the reserve officers' train- 
ing corps, in full imiform, nearly 2,000 persons 
marched across the campus and to the doors of Mem- 
orial Hall. Prof. A. H. Patterson was grand marshal 
of the entire procession and individual marshals led 
the successive divisions of students, alumni, faculties 
of North (Carolina colleges, county and city superin- 
tendents, and teai^hers in public and private schools ; 
the council of state, state offices, and members of the 
general assembly ; trustees, the delegates from learned 
societies, delegates from colleges and universities; the 
University faculty, and &ially the inaugural group. 

As the procession reached Memorial Hall, it stopped 
and opened ranks, and between the long lines the in- 
augural party marched forward and into the building

laid it, not so much ujion me as an individual as ujidn hei- 
Universit,v, wliicli for the moment I chance to symbolize. It is 
altogptl:er in lier naii.e tliat 1 I'ledge the State through >ou 
lo.yalt.v unstinted to the of education and of human wel- 
fare, service to the extent of our capacity to the citizenship of 
State and nation, re;ne\ved con.secration to the task of achiev- 
ing "that high destiuy which ivas the vision and purpose of 
the founders. ' ' 

In her name I i)ledgc you witli liigli confidence and cour- 
age all these things. For the fabric of her life, a century 
and a quarter in the weaving, is strong, and colorful, and 
fair. It is enduring, for it lias been wrought, not alone with 
hands, but with hearts. In warp and woof it is aglow with 
the pa.ssionate lo.valt.v, the high devotion, of the living and the 
dead whose work it is. The Universit.v of North Carolina, 
jiroduct of the vision and the asjuration of generation after 
generation of the citizenshi]) of this State, recipient through- 
out her history of a hundred and twent.v-five years of all that 
love and service which her sons and her friends everywhere 
have so richly and in such unstinted measure bestow'ed, de- 
clares anew at tliis liour lier firm purpose to be worthy of it 

With reverent gratitude her heart goes out to those who 
since her second founding have presided over her destin.y. 
Never has an institution been granted wiser guidance, never 
richer devotion. There is no one of them, her leaders, to 
whom she does not owe a and a fuller life; no one who 
did not leave her greater and stronger than he found her ; no one 
who did not lay deep and bi-oad foundations on w'hich those who 
came after him might build. And if her spirit falter and 
her eyes grow dim with the thought of him her latest head, 
she grows strong and brave once more with the vision of the 
ricli inheritance he left. All that long lifetime of consecra- 
tion and of service that was crowded into his four brief years 
of leadership, all his faith in her and his dreams for her, all 
that she has received from him in deepened sijiritual insight, 
in heightened passion to serve her state, in broadened vision of 
what democracy is and should be, all the rich and tender mem- 
ories of the life he lived for her, hearten and strengthen her 
soul as she girds her.self for her forward .iourney. Rich lie- 
yond all measure is the love she has received ; it is for her, 
through the years which lie ahead, to see to it, in what she 
is and what she does, that unshaken she keeps the faith. 

The South Began Life Afresh 

.\ ■luTlf-centur,>- aji'o tlie University and the South began life 
iifresli, with no capital- save courage, no resources save a host 
of treasured memories and a dauntless faith in the future. 
Ahead there loomed grim j'ears of privation and sacrifice, of 
ceaseless struggle for the bare material essentials of living. 
The South was face to face with the giant task, not merely of 
buihling a new civilization, but of building it, not on virgin 
soil, but amid the ruins of an ancient edifice, wdiose parts must 
somehow be fitted to uses new and strange. It was a task 
that might well have cast down the strongest hearts, one com- 
])arable only in its difliculty and in the obscurity of its issue 
with that v.hich today confronts war-torn Europe. 

The record of how the issue was met is the essentiall.v 
undramatic and yet heroic record of the lives of thousands of 
rjuiet and far-visioned men who toiled year by year for the 
U]iliuilding of the land the.v loved. Slowlj-, very slowdy, at 
first, then quicker and stronger pulsed the currents of the 
new life. Again the doors of opportunity swung open; again 
came mornings of promise and evenings of fulfilment. 

From Appomattox to the Meuse-Argonne and the Hindenburg 
line is but fifty-three years. But, for the South, what crowded 
years of achievement! They had witnessed the writing of one 
of the bravest chapters of all history. A people, drained of its 
treasure and its young manhood, had within this brief period 
established itself on a firmer foundation than before. The bat- 
tle had been won ; the re-creation of the South was an accom- 
plished fact. Th(3 story of her resurrection bears a 
message which at this moment has a more than local signifi- 
cance — a story Avhieh today Europe ma.y read to its heartening 
and its encouragement. For the world the South has today 
this evangel of cheer, ' ' The thing that I have done you, too, 
can do. Take lieart ; it is but courage and faith you need!" 

A New Chapter Has Been Written 

In the history of tlie South-, the chapter tliat began at Ap- 
pomattox closed on the battlefields of France. Five years ago 
it was evident that the last page of the stor.y of her long 
struggle with adversity was being written. Today there is 
no one of us who does not know that the leaf has been turned, 
the new chajiter begun. The new South is no longer a vision ; 
with almost startling swiftness it is here. It is our happy 
jiortion, not to lift uji our e.ves in longing toward it from 
some Pisgah height, but to be members of that company who 
have entered into it and jjossessed it. 



So swift indeed has lieen the fulfilment that a liaze of nii- 
reality still clings about it, as with every hope so long de- 
ferred and so suddenly realized. But nothing is more certain. 
It is but sober fact that this State of Xorth t!arolina which 
within its borders in 18(55 had not a single solvent bank, is now 
for the first time practically self-financing; that last year 
alone its bank resources increased nearly sixty per cent ; 
that the consumption of raw cotton in its textile plants is 
greater than that of any other state in the Union, and the total 
value of its manufactured cotton products sur|iassed by one 
alone; that its tobacco manufactures total more than twice 
of any other state. In ten years Norh Carolina has risen from 
eighteenth to fourth jilace among the states in the value of 
her farm crops; the value of her last year's crop alone was 
three times the total amount of her entire investment in farm 
property twenty years ago. The total output of her farms 
and her factories last year was nearly a billion and a half 
of dollars. Xor is all this a merely temporary condition, the 
result of a ]>owerful stimulation whose effect is spent. What 
gives confident assurance of jiermanence is the fact that the 
machinery of jiroduction on the farm and in tlie fa-ctory, 
functions and promises to continue to function, more smoothh- 
than that of perhaps any other iiart of the wprld. 

A New Era of Prosperity 

The South 's new era is. then, from its very beginning, one 
of abounding and wide-S])rcail material prosperity. But it is 
far more than this. To one who looks long at the currents 
that now flow freely through Southern life there comes the 
growing conviction that here fhere now begins a great new 
chapter, not only in the history of this section, but in the his- 
tory of America. Por here, as nowhere else, are now at work 
those great creative impulses which have made America pos- 
sible. Here is a people American in blood, American in spirit, 
tempered and tried by adversity; a peojjle taught self-reliance 
in the hardest of schools, acquainted with labor, cherishing 
above material goods the things of the spirit, firm in their 
faith in democracy. Into the hands of this people there have 
come at last the keys of an ojiportunity that most wonder- 
fully exceeds their dreams. Southern life today is athrill and 
astir with the sense of it. Its note is one of joyous and eager 
confidence; its mood the constructive mood of tlie American 
liioneer : 

"Down the edges, througli the passes, u)i tlic mount.'iius steep. 
Conquering, holding, daring, venturing as avc go the unknown 
ways. ' ' 

Civilization is to Take New Form 

As the mind swings forward into tlie years which lie ahead, 
.years big with destiny for the South, conviction deepens that 
out of all this creative energy, this confidence and faith, there 
is to come something infinitel.v greater and finer than a giant 
essa.v in materialism; tliat here a new civilization is to take 
form and substance, a civilization w-hich blends into one har- 
monious and happ.v «hole the best that is Southern by in- 
heritance and tradition with the best that the new material 
freedom affords. The jiroblem of achieving this civilization is 
the problem which lies at the heart of Southern life today. It 
is a problem which is to be solved, not by the mere imitation 
of that to which men have hitherto adhered in their common 
life, by a faithful but uninspired retracing of the old familiar 
lights and shadows, but through such a liberation of the spir- 
its of men that, reverent but unafraid, they shall catch up in 
their own hands the threads of destiny and weave them into 
a pattern richer and finer than America has yet seen. 

Universities Must Furnish Leadership 

The challenge of the South to the Southern State University 
today is tluit .she show her.self wortliy of leadership in this 
great constructive entcriirise, this the world's latest attem]it 
to evolve a new and higher civilization. Such a challenge 
slie can meet )iy im merely perfunctory response. It is for 
her passionately and reverently to dedicate herself and all of 
herself to this gre.'it task, to set about it, not in the spirit 
which would dieciidinc men into obeilient and unthinking ser- 
vants of some rigidly ]ireconceived mechanical and authorita- 
tive state, which holds the lives and souls of men as mere 
instruments to its calculated ends; but in the spirit of the de- 
mocracy she serves, that sjiirit which sets men truly free t« 
embody in ever higher and nobler forms the best tlint is in 
their hojies and dreams and prayers. 

For such a full liberation of all men, in body, mind and 
spirit, is the ver.v heart of the program of democracy. It 
holds, with Burke, that government is not for its own sake, 
but a contrivance of human wisdom to |)rovide for what men 
want, and it adds, as has been finely said from this platform, 
the faitli that "with the right to live freely, men will live 
rightly;'' that between what free and enlightened men reall.v 
want and the deepest and highest interests of the democratic 
state there is no contradiction, Init a full identity. Unrest and 
dissension within, it would hold that it cannot ho|ie perman- 
ently to meet by the im|iosition of rejiressive authority, but 
that, true to its creed that the oidy control that is ultimately 
worth while is self-control, it must jiress w'ith new vigor its 
effort to set men ically free, not from respcjusibility, but 
through it. 

It is tlie achievement of such a responsible freedom wliiclL 
is the common business of education and of the democratic 
state. In such a program all institutions of education, of 
whatever grade or name, however founded or suii]iorted, find 
a common purjiose and an aim which joins them as brothers 
each to each, and makes of all tlieir learners and teachers one 
great company enlisted in the same high cause. 

Carolina Accepts the Challenge 

In such ii spirit the Xhiiversity eagerly and reverentl.v con- 
secrates the utmost of her powers toward the upbuilding on 
this soil of a civilization which shall be, not merely prosperous, 
but free, and because of its freedom, great and enduring; a 
civilization which shall fuse in one great creative synthesis tlie 
best in both old and new, .a civilization in which more and 
more men shall do justly, shall love mercy, and shall walk 
humbly with their God. 

But the Southern State Universit.v, if it is to prove itself 
worthy of leadership in the South at this hour, must offer more 
than its vision of 

"The spirit of the years to conu' 
Yearning to mix himself with Life." 

more than its i'aith. however keen, that its goal is that of 
democracy itself. It think through, and embody in 
tangible form, its answer to the question "How in the South 
today are men most completely to be set free f(n- this high 
emprise of building the greater commonwealth ? ' ' 

Such a (piestion can be answered neither by a blind reliance 
on the dictates of tradition, nor b.v a summary rejection of 
the old because it is old. It is not age that matters, liut 
value, value for the enrichment of the lives of men today. And 
whether there be in anything such value the University must 
determine, not b.v abstract speculation, but by a ceaseless ef- 



fort to see the life nliouf licr steadily aud whole, to interpret 
to herself and to all iiuMi tlie flow of its swift currents, and 
to minister to its real aud abiding needs. I have said its 
"real and abiding" needs, for the university which in her zeal 
for quick results and practical programs, forgets the deey) 
aud i)eruianent springs of life, is as unworthy of leadershij) 
as she that denies the value of the immediate and practical 
altogether. Her eyes must sweeyj with level glance the busy, 
work-a-day life of' men about her, as with quick sympathy she 
declares ' ' This is my domain, ' ' but they must also lift them- 
selves up unto the everlasting hills beyond the work-shoiJ and 
the market-place, into those high places where men walk alone 
with their souls and with God. For these, too. are her domain. 

Her responsibility to the swiftly developing matei-ial life of 
the South is clear. ' ' The greatest obstacle in the way of the 
development of the South 's foreign commerce, ' ' said a leader 
of Southern industry the other day, "is the lack of men who 
are trained to understand its problems." The production of 
such trained men is a responsibility which the University 
glailly assumes, as she assumes that of fitting men for the ever 
more complicated problems which coufrout Southern business 
and industry as a whole. 

She must see to it tliat trained workers man Southern la- 
boratories, build Southern roads, develop her latent electric 
jiow'er, conserve her forests, build her bridges and tunnel her 
mountains. She must insist that such men are equipped ade- 
quately and thoroughly for the work they are to do. But her 
supreme task in all this is not the relatively simple one of 
training men who shall be efficient at their job. To rest con- 
tent with this would be to ignore the whole vital problem which 
lies at the heart of the life of the new industrial South; the 
jiroblem of whether the Southern civilization of the future is 
to center about the inac-hine, or about the man. 

Industrial Efficiency and Human Freedom to be 

This problem of rightly relating industrial efficiency to 
human freedom every developing industrial civilization has 
faced, Ijut none has fully solved. Aud as now the South eon- 
fronts it. she must needs bring to bear for its solution all 

her sturdy respect for the individual, all her idealism aud her 
regard for human and for spiritual values. To lose these is 
to buy industrial efficiency at too great a price. But through 
these to transform industry into something more than a method 
of making a living or of accumulating wealth, to make of it 
a great instrument for achieving the ideals and the aspirations 
of democracy itself — this is to write a chapter in Southern 
history that the whole world will read. 

The problem is no easy one. The record of the world 's deal- 
ings with industry is eloquent testimony to that fact. But 
the University must all the more see to it tliat the men wliom 
she trains for industry shall catch the sense of its vital sig- 
nificance, that their minds and hearts shall be so set free that 
they shall see their task, not as an isolated fact, but as an 
essential part of the great common undertaking of the demo- 
cratic commonwealth, an undertaking which is based on co- 
operation, not on conflict, and which regards all human rela- 
tionships, whether in industry or in government, as finding 
their complete exjiression just as they become means for the 
acliievemeut of a more ijerfect freedom. 

Professional Men Must Love and Serve Mankind 

The obligation of so liberating the whole man that he 
becomes more than an eflicient specialist rests with equal 
force on all the University 's professional schools. Her lawyers 
uuist be trained in the law, and they must also be clear that 
"the law' is only beneficence acting by a rule." Her teachers 
must not only know how and what to teach, but they must go 
out quick in the faith that the future of democracy is in their 
hands; that day by day they are laying the very foundation- 
stones of the new Southern civilization. Those whom she 
trains for social service she would make proficient in technique, 
for she realizes tliat, here as everywhere else, good-will alone 
is an inefficient weapon; but she would also seek to tmicli their 
hearts with the deep conviction that it is only he who loves 
mankind who is worthy to serve it, and that the social service 
which is permanently worth whiK' is that which points men 
the \vay to freedom. 

It is precisely her faith that the deepest need of the new 
ci\ilization is for men who are both efficient workers and 




fitted to fo-ciin'ratc in the ediistnu'tive iJioyiaiu of ileiiKicincy 

through the full release of their OAvn higliest powers that 

.sharpens tlie University's sense of ol)lifjatiou towanl the 

agricultural life of her State. i-''or the teelmieal training of 
the farm-worlier this University has no obligation; but she 

has every obligation to the farmer as a man and as a citizen. 

Were other responsibility lacking, the single fact that in her 

present student body the sons of farmers far outnumber tliose 

of men of any other occupation would of itself impose no 

light duty toward the homes from which they come. But a 

further obligation rich in opportunity for service grows out 

of the fact thar the farm is rapidl}' becoming, not an isolated 

compartment in the State's life, but a cros.s-section of that 

life. As local industries develop, it matters increasingly to 

the farmer that in a State whose industrial life so largely 

centers about the manufacture of its own raw materials, this 

life should be just and sound ; as it matters to him that the 

])hysicians, and lawyers, and teachers who serve him shall be 

broadly and liberally trained. All these vital relationshijis 

into which agriculture must enter arc matters of concern to 

the University; while still deeper and more intimate is the 

concern she feels that through her may be multiplied tlu' 

avenues by which the farm home itself shall come into ever 

closer and freer touch with the best that the new civilization 

has, and will have, to offer, so that it may share, and sliare 

fully, in the life of the new South. 

The College Must Promote Democracy 

Tlie crucial test of the ability of the University to identify 
her mission with tiiat of democracy is found in her achieve- 
ment in the college of liberal arts. For in the college, if 
anywhere, must emerge the answer to the (|uestion whether 
the ideal of freedom can successfully embody itself in concrete 
concepts of education and of life. To fail here, under con- 
ditions so fitted to the task, is to proclaim that the great 
underlying principles of democracy can nowhere be attaiiu>d. 
Success or failure will spring ultimately from tlie attitude 
of the college itself toward what it is about and from no 
other factor. The heart of the matter is whether the college 
conceives its work in terms of a dull and dreary formalism, 
an uninspired repetition of a set of lifeless formulae, or 
whether it really passionately believes that its task is that 
of liberating men from all that is partial ami limited and 
false, so that they shall look out upon life with eyes that 
see and understand. If such be its belief, all its work in 
whatever field achieves a unity of purpose which it is its 
mission to make plain, and through which it may touch Avitii 
(lame the mind, the heart and the will. Science becomes 
lioth the absorbing tale of the increasing liberation of man 
from the tyranny of nature and that of the liberation of his 
mind through its search for truth; literature, the record of' 
the human heart as it has struggled to express its aspirations; 
history, the story of the march of the human will as it 
strives with nature rnid with itself for freedom. 

It Must Train for Service and Citizenship 

But it is not the ultimate aim of the college to develop 
men who are only spectators of life, however clear their vision 
of what in it is ephemeral and what abiding. At this hour 
of constructive need the college could not more greatly sin 
against itself and the State than by training men who should 
hold themselves aloof from the work-a-day life of the world, 
from participation and leadership in every fine and worthy 
human cause. The University believes with lier whole heart 

lliat it is the fuiu-tidu of tlic cdllege to train for citizenshiii 
and foi- service; and slic also whole-heartedly believes that 
litizeiiship and service piucced from within the man himself, 
not from external mandate. To tliis enil she would seek to 
develop in those who come to her a free spirit of incpiiry 
into the relationships that underlie the common life of man, 
an inquiry pursued, not in an atmosphere of destructive criti- 
cism, but in one in which it is constantly clear that only by 
holding fast to. the best that men have toiled and dreamed 
and fought for can a yet greater good be attained. To this 
lud also, since she holds that men best learn to live as fre" 
and co-operative citizens when to the study of what democ- 
racy is and means they add its real and constant practice, 
she would strive to make of lier life as a whole, campus and 
classroom and playgiound, one great example of her faith 
that high ideals and fine habits of citizenship and service 
develop best when free men live together ir. members of a coni- 
munity whose obligations they themselves have defineil and 

For the college of arts which is true to its faith, the 
University conceives that the New South has a genuine ami 
increasing need. For if this the South 's great adventure is 
to end in more than the accumulation of wealth, if human 
hapjiiness and freedom are inde<^d its goal, she must guard 
her institutions of learning, that they may be min-e than 
nmchines for the pioduction of workers skilled in their 

Ideal of Liberal Education to be Cherished 

The message of the college to her sons is the message of 
democracy itself, that "the main enterprise of the world is 
tlie upbuilding of a man." Nothing is more vital, at this 
moment when the South is caught up on the swell of her 
newly released material constructive forces, than her constant 
clear ( vision of this fact. Now, if ever, must the South 
cherish the ideal of liberal education, that out of her colleges, 
as out of a great reservoir of power, there may come in 
increasing numbers and with increasing strength men who have 
caught the vision of what life really means. 

An institution whose concern is truth must find one very 
real test of its vigor in whether it seeks to contribute new 
truths to the world's existing store. The impulse towarc' 
research springs from the same conditions which insure tin 
vitality of its teaching, and reacts in turn upon its whoh 
inner life. The supreme question here is not whether re 
search is of practical value to the state. To that questioi 
the whole history of Western civilization gives eloquenl 
answer. Truth must indeed be sought upon the mountain- 
top, but with him whose passion to look upon her face wins 
him access to her high abode, she walks hand in hand down intr 
the common haunts of men, and with her touch men's labors 
lighten, their bodies strengthen, and their souls grow great. 
In all that men may do there is assuredly nothing more 
practical than to seek for truth. The real question is rather 
that of the spirit in which they go about their quest. Re- 
search may sink to the level of mere mechanical and lifeless 
routine, which kills the spirit while it preserves the letter, 
or it may become such a liberating power that the mind 
which comes under its spell is caught up forever into a 
higher and a clearer air. Men with such a vision the state must 
surely count among its most precious possessions. Fron- 
tiersmen they, pointing the way through the untrodden forest 
to the millions who shall possess the land they find ; builders 
of democracy through their eternal quest for truth. 



The University is the Heart of the State 

With siiili :i. st-iisc (if the oneness of her mission with tliat 
of till! democratic eommonwealth the University becomes, if 
she keep faitli, not an appendage of the State, but its warm 
throbbing heart, linked in a living union by the jjulsing 
currents of life itself with every member of the one great 
whole. She is of the State, and there is uo fine and worthy 
cause that is the State 's that is not also hers. Teaching, 
research, and extension, are but three various channels througli 
which her life finds natural expression. If that life be 
vigorous ami free, it will out of its abundance ever seek 
new aud direct contacts with the citizenship of the State 
through extension which is real and vital, just as it will 
seek for better teaching and more productive research. 
Among these varied phases of university activity there is 
no contradiction; all embody one spirit and one ideal. 

And this ideal, whether it find expression in the college 
or the professional school, in teaching or extension or research, 
is that of full and eager and constructive participation in 
the task of democracy as it sets men free to realize their 
higher selves. Such self-realization can achieve its highest 
e.\prcssion only through that deepest of all human experi- 
ences which attunes the sou! to one Reality existent through 
nil forms, in the abiding faith that the stair which man lias 
builded and by wdiich he climbs to freedom, also "slopes 
through the darkness up to God." 

Great Responsibility for Proper Leadership 

There is in all tlie world of education today no greater 
responsibility than that which rests upon the state univer- 
sities of the South. Theirs is not the easy task of minis- 
tering to a fixed and static life. Theirs is a sterner and a 
higher obligation. They must serve and guide and interpret 
to itself and to the world a new civilization which is yet 
in the making. Holding fast to all that is best in the past, 
they must face the future confident and unafraid. Quick of 
vision, warm^ sympathy, and of broad understanding, they 
must lead on through unfamiliar scenes and along untrodden 

Ami upon her whose name is written on our hearts, oldest 
among her sisters and ever young, such obligation peculiarly 
rests. For the State she serves thrills from mountain to 
sea with till' currents of the new life. Day by day skies 
brighten and horizons broaden, as Carolina presses onward 
toward a future more happy than her dreams. The State of 
Xortli Carolina aud her University ! Partners in the supreme 
adventure of achieving in ever fuller measure that democracy 
f(U- which their sons so freely gave their lives — fellow- 
workers in the same high cause, marching shoulder to shoul- 
der toward the same shining goal, as they draw strength aud 
guidance each from each! 

Thus at this hour, as this mother of free men renews her con- 
secration, she would seek to gather up and in one great 
fiamiug purpose all the infinite wealth that is hers of affection 
and loyalty aiid love. Strong as the oaks that guard her round 
about, kindly as the springtime that embowers her, she sits 
upon this the hill of pilgrimage for ceaseless generations of 
her sons. But for her spirit there is no single local habitation. 
It is here; Init it is also with her sons aud with the sons of all 
meu as they strive for better and higher things. May it shine 
ever brighter and more clear, a light unto the feet of men 
and a railiance within their hearts!

dent in the University, has won the James A. Ruinrill

Asheville High School Wins Championship in Eighth Annual Contest 
of the High School Debating Union 

The eighth annual final contest of the North Caro- 
lina High School Debating Union came to a con- 
clusion in Memorial Hall at the University of Nortli 
Carolina on the evening of April 23rd, when Arthur 
Kale and Clifton Ervin, representing the Asheville 
high school, received a three to two vote of the judges 
over Elizabeth Edwards and Blanche Henley, repre- 
senting the Goldsboi-o high school, and so were 
awarded the Aycock Memorial Cup. 

In tliis final debate for the Aycock Memorial Cup 
the Asheville boys upheld the affirmative and the 
Goldsboro girls the negative side of the query : Re- 
solved, That the United States should adopt a ])olicy 
of further material restriction of immigration. 

President Chase presided over the final debate, and 
E. R. Rankin acted as secretary. Prof. N. W. 
Walker, chairman of the High School Debating Union 
committee, presented the Aycock Memorial Cup, the 
trophj- given by the Carolina iuter-collegiate debaters, 
to the winning team. Dean M. C. S. Noble, of the 
School of Education, presented the cups and medals 
to the winners in the inter-scholastic track meet. The 
judges for the final debate were Professors H. H. Wil- 
liams, L. P. McGehee, Edwin Greenlaw, L. R. Wil- 
son, and W. S. Bernard. Careful observers who have 
heard all of the final debates for the past eight years 
pronounced this year's final debate to be tlie Ix'st of 
all the final debates that have been held. 

Two hundred liigli schools took part in the triangu- 
lar debates held throughout the State on April 9th, 
Forty-four high schools won both sides of the (juery 
ou this date, and under the regulations governing the 
Union, sent their teams to the I'niversity for the final 
contest. Through a process of elimination in Chapel 
Hill on April 22nd and 23rd, the eighty-eight teams 
were narrowed down to the Asheville affirmative team 
and the Goldsboro negative team. 

The schools which sent their teams to the Univer- 
sity were : Apex, Asheville, Bessemer City, Bethel, 
Biltmore, Burlington, Charlotte, China Grove, Cor- 
nelius, Dell School, Dixie. East Bend, Enfield, Falling 
Creek, Franklinton, Goldsboro, Guilford College, 
Hamlet, Hiekorj, Kenly, Kinston, Lexington, New- 
ton, Oakwood, Orrum, Princeton, Piueville, Red Oak, 
Roanoke Rapids, Rockingham, Roper, Rutherfordton, 
Scotts, Sauford, Stem, Stony 'Creek, Taylorsville, 
Teachey, Vaneeboro, Weslej' Chapel, Woodland, Cur- 
rituck, Churclilaiid. and Hallsboro. 

High School Week — the events of which arc the 
final contest of the High School Debating Union, the 
inter-scliolastic track meet, and the inter-scholastic 
tennis tournament — has come to be recognized as one 
of the principal occasions at the University for the 
calendar year. Memorial Hall is always crowded with 
interested spectators for the final debate. 


The eighth annual inter-scholastic track meet of 
North Carolina, held at the University, on April 23rd. 
was won by the Friendship high school of Alamance 
county. The scores made by the various schools were 
as follows : Friendship 27, Greensboro 21, Chapel 
Hill 19, Sand Hill 13, Huntersville 10, Burlington 10, 
Durham 9, High Point 1. Friendship high school 
was awarded the trophy cup, and the Greensboro high 
school was awarded the cup given each year to the 
winners of the relay race. Ninety contestants took 
part in the inter-scholastic track meet this year. 


The Wilson high school won the fifth annual in- 
terscholastic tennis tournament held at the University 
on April 22nd and 23rd, as a feature of High School 
Week. The Wilson representatives were successful in 
winning the championship both in singles and doubles. 


Taiqualified endorsement of the resolutions adopted 
by the recent conference of alumni association ju-esi- 
dents and secretaries was expressed at a recent din- 
ner of the Harvard-Tech U. N. C. chapter in Cani- 
lu-idge. After the new movement had been explained 
generally by Chairman Weeks more detailed accounts 
were given of the work undertaken by Messrs. D. H. 
Bacot, former instructor in history, and E. F. Parker, 
former instructor in French. Proposals to create a 
full-time secretaryship aiul to hold annual confer- 
ences of local officers met with strong approval. 

There are 24 men in the Harvard-Tech alumni 
chapter this year; 15 in the Law School. 5 in the 
Graduate School, 2 in the Undergraduate School, and 
2 in M. I. I. Mangum Weeks, '15, is president, and 
Wm. H. Stephenson, "18, secretary.

The first \'irg-inia game, played in Charlottesville, 
was lost in the 9th inning when Banghman, the Vir- 
ginia first baseman, drove a home run to deep right 
field. The second Virginia game, played in Greensboro, 
was lost in the 9th inning also when Captain Mahood 
of the Virginia team, with a two-rnn lead against him 
and runners on second and third, and with (this is 
true) two strikes and three balls on him, singled to 
left and scored both runners. The third Virginia 
game, to be played in Chapel Hill, was rained out. 

After playing in-and-out baseball in the early part 
of the season, veiy good one day, very bad the next, 
Carolina finally seemed to get a start on her northern 
trip. Three of the four games were lost, but all by 
close scores and after hard fights, the Pennsylvania 
game in particular being a thriller. But the Mary- 
land State team was defeated 4 to 3 in 10 innings, and 
in both this game and the Penn game "Lefty" Wil- 
son displayed brilliant form. 

Returning to North Carolina the Tar Heels faced 
three hard home contests in 5 days, upon which de- 
jjcnded the state chamiiionship, in the oiiinion of 
several sporting writers in the State. The three 
games were the best played by the team during the 
entire season. Wake Forest, which had won easily 
earlier in the season, fell before a severe attack and 
Wilson's steady pitching, 8 to 0. Two days later 
Wilson held A. and E. to 4 scattered hits while his 
teammates were fielding beautifully and hitting hard. 

Carolina wiiuiiiig again, 6 to 2, thus clearing the 
A. and E. series decisively. Two days later Wilson 
again pitched very brilliantly against Trinity and 
backed by the best fielding of the season won 2 to 1 in 
12 innings. In this game Wilson performed the re- 
markable feat of pitching only 70 balls in 12 innings. 
In the first 9 innings he threw 52 balls. Only 38 men 
faced him altogether, 3 each in 10 of the innings, 4 
each in the other two. It was a brilliant close to the 

Sporting writers over the State have generally de- 
clared Carolina the State champions. Their decision 
is based on the fact that Carolina lost no series to a 
State team. Davidson was defeated in one game. 
Trinity in 2 games, A. and E. in 2 out of 3 games, 
and Wake Forest and Carolina split, each winning 
one game. As A. an E. had defeated Wake Forest in 
2 out of 3 games, the title seems fairly clear. 

At the close of the season Lawrence G. ("Lefty".) 
Wilson, of Dunn, was elected captain, a popular 
choice both on the team and on the campus. Captain 
Feimster, who has played 4 years, catcher Yoimce, 
pitchers Joyner and Llewelyn, and probably Saimd- 
ers and Stewart, outfielders, will not return. Lowe, 
McLean, and Pharr from the infield, and Sweetman 
from the outfield will be back, as well as much prom- 
ising material from Fred Patterson's crack Freshman 


Dr. J. G. deli. Hamilton, Alumni Professor of His- 
tory, has been made a Kenan Professor and becomes 
the seventh member of the faculty to receive bene- 
fits under the Kenan fiuid. The other six are Profes- 
sors Venable, Cain, H. V. Wilson, MacNider, Bran- 
son, and Greenlaw. The announcement was made 
following a meeting of the executive committee of 
the trustees in April. 

At the same time Kenan Traveling Professorships 
were granted to Professors Collier Cobb and W. M. 
Dey. Under these professorships members of the fac- 
ulty have a year's leave of absence with .salaries paid 
to pursue studies in line with their college work. Pro- 
fessor Cobb will spend most of his year investigating 
shore-line processes with relation to harbor develop- 
ment and maintenance on both sides of the Pacific 
Ocean. Professor Dey will spend a year in France, 
most of the time in Paris, devoting his attention to 
French ])honetics and French lyrical poetry. 



One rarely comes upon so fine and cogent an ut- 
terance in contemporary speech as tliis from tlie re- 
cent inaugural address of President Harry AVoodhurn 
Chase of the I'niversity of North Carolina: ''An in- 
stitution whose concern is truth must find one very 
real test of its vigor in whether it seeks to contribute 
new truths to the world's existing store. The impulse 
toward research sjirings from the same conditions 
which insure the vitality of its teaching, and reacts 
in turn upon its whole inner life. The supreme ques- 
tion here is not whether research is of practical value 
to the State. To that question the whole history of 
Western civilization gives eloquent answer. Truth 
must indeed be sought npon the mountain top, but to 
him whose passion to look ujion her face wins him 
access to her high abode, she walks hand in hand down 
into the commou liaunts of men ; and with her touch 
men's labors lighten, theii- lK)dies strengthen, and 
their souls grow great. In all that men may do, there 
is assuredly nothing more jiractical than to seek foi- 

Tax])ayers who furnish the tendons of finance for 
State institutions of learning and those who help to 
upbuild the universities and colleges founded l)y the 
church or by private jjliilanthrojiy, should bear ever in 
mind the incomparably nseful nature of the cause to 
which they are contributing. We are too wont to 
think of so-called "higher" education as more of a 
luxury than a necessity, just as we are too wont to 
think of knowledge as the content of books and of 
truth as a cold abstraction. Knowledge is anything 
but dry and static ; it is perennially green and astir. 
"Knowledge is iiower. " Truth is anything but clois- 
tral and wraithlike. It is the most concret(\ the most 
substantial, the most essential of all things in man's 
activity and environment." 

Tlie chemist who discovers means of reducing fac- 
tory wastes or increasing crop yields sets forward the 
frontiers of knowledge and helps bring to pass the 
kingdom of truth. So with the entomologist who fuids 
a preventive for an oi'chard blight, or breeds a wilt- 
resisting variety of cotton. So with the bacteriologist 
who gives us the clew to combating and nltimately 
destroying dread diseases. So with the teacher who 
gives sounder and more gripping ideals of citizenship. 
So with the philosopher who fashions clearer and 
more fertile concepts. So with the seer who inspires to 
larger faith and courage. Knowledge was never yet 
in books, nor truth in mere precepts and creeds. Its 
symbol is there, but truth itself flows in the currents 
of life, from the loftiest to ttie lowliest, and dwells in 
the understanding mind and heart. It is not always 
to be reckoned in dollars or measured in utilitarian 
terms. But it is always practical, the most practical 
thing in the imiverse. 

To what better use, then, can public funds and pri- 
vate gifts be turned than to the advancement of insti- 
tutions whose distinctive purpose is not only to im- 
part knowledge but to increase its store, not only to 
inculcate loyalty to truth but to kindle an ardor for 

its disco\'er\' and to strengthen the sinews for its 
quest? If we wish to develop the South's resources 
more speedily and more fruitfully, if we wish to make 
firmer and fairer paths for her oncoming generations, 
if we wish to avail ourselves of the principles em- 
bodied in the proverb, "He profits most who serves 
best," by all means let us turn zealously to the iip- 
building of our colleges and universities. For through 
them we shall, bring to bear upon our opportunities 
and problems that creativeness called truth, which 
"endureth aiul is always strong," "which liveth and 
conquereth f orevermore. " — Atlanta Constitution, 
Mav 2, 1920. 


The last of the guberuatorial candidates to appear 
before the student body was .John J. Parker, '07, Re- 
publican, who on April 17 spoke .''oi- two hours from 
the platform of Gcri'ard Hall to an audiciicc that 
filled the building and listened attentively wliih' he 
denounced the revaluation act. ]n-ociainic(l the right 
of labor to organize, to bargain collectively, and to 
strike, advocated woman suffrage, favored legislation 
to help the farmer, aiul read the negro out of tlu- 
Republican party in North Carolina. 

Introduced by Professor Horace Williams, his old 
teacher, Mr. Parker thanked the University and the 
students for the privilege of speaking before them and 
declared that "The Tar Heel's" editorial "Advice to 
Candidates" was one of the most imjiortant and far- 
reaching editorials that had appeared in the State 
during the present campaign. His denunciation of the 
revaluation act, to which he devoted a good ]iart of 
his time, was based, he said, on the fact that it placed 
a greater burden on the shoulder of those who were 
now most heavil.y bitrdened and ought to be relieved 
rather than hit again ; on the municipal financing 
clause, which he said would lead to muncipal bank- 
ruptcy -.d over the state; and on what he called the 
"double taxing" feature, taxing both property and 
the income from property. 


Among the recent speakers before the School of 
Commerce have been two alumni, John C. Whitaker, 
'12, of Winston-Salem, manager of the employment 
bureau of the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, and 
E. P. Hartley, '99, chief statistician of manufactures 
in the census bureau. Mr. Whitaker, speaking on "Em- 
ployment Problems," told of the work of the Rej'- 
nolds company in developing its employment bureau, 
and Mr. Hartley described the work of his depart- 
ment of the census bureau.

The University President 

Thei'e is a story to tell in the very recent past and 
the verj- vivid present of one of the oldest and great- 
est of the Soutliern State Universities. In fact, in 
point of actnal service it is the oldest .State University 
in existence ; in point of extended service to its State, 
in the qualit.y of its facnlt.y, and in its programs of 
culture and democracy, who shall tind its superior? 
The story — constituting perhaps the most distinctive 
chapter in educational administration in Southern 
universities — centers around two leaders, both of the 
new generation. In these leaders were common, to 
a remarkable degree, the qualities of young manhood, 
loyal service, simple living, genuine and sincere mo- 
tives, and calm but resolute purpose. 

The one, the lamented and beloved university presi- 
dent of yesteryear, leaving a remarkable heritage and 
noble inspiration, finds his eulogy written by the Pres- 
ident of the United States "as one by gift and char- 
acter alike qualified to play a distinguished part and 
playing it to the adnuration of all who knew him." 
The other, tlie president of today and tomorrow, con- 
fident, clear-eyed, passionately devoted to the ideals 
and service of a great State University, dreams dreams 
of a living democi-acy and plans for its realization 
through better education and the new citizenship. 
The one, the University's own son, "giving himself 
fi-eely, wholly, jo.yously that she might be strong and 
large and abound in the noblest life," sought to make 
the State University "the instrument of democracy 
for realizing all the high and healthful aspirations of 
the State,"' and in so doing he interpreted to the 
people of the State "democracy, culture, efiRcient 
citizenship" to be guided by a "confident and com- 
petent leadership." The other, a student of educa- 
tion, for a decade a teacher in the University itself 
and a worker in the State, winning his way by simple, 
quiet worth and deserved merit, dreams of liis State 

University as one which "ty|)ifi('s and serves and 
guides this new civilization" of the South, "an insti- 
tution shot through with the spirit of .service, broad 
and ([uick in its sympathies, practical in its training 
for the practical things of that life which in its 
astounding complexity confronts the new generation 
. . . resolutely keeping in tiie foregroiuid those 
spiritual values by which alone a State can survive." 
The one, a Southerner of national reputation, the 
iilanter of good seed which will "grow- up and set in 
motion potential evolutionary processes that will go 
on and on working themselves out in the life of the 
ITniversity and the State," held democracy to be the 
"main and active manifestation" of culture and mag- 
nified "donoeraey and work" as the heart of Ameri- 
can civilization, holding at the same time that "cul- 
ture and work" arc the basis of a sound democracy. 
The other, a son of tiie nation, reaping where another 
hath sown, loving the South, expresses the strong con- 
viction that "the next great creative chapter in the 
history of the nation is to be written here in the 
South where is now the real center of that jiioneering 
s]^irit which has made America possible," and sets 
himself to the task of aiding in the building of the 
greater South through an education which will add 
"to individual com]M'teiicy public-mindedness, and to 
jiublic-niindedness an abiding sense of spiritual real- 

Surelj' the story, but suggested here for fuller in- 
vestigation and study, is typical of the South 's best 
hopes and of its highest aspirations for the newer 
citizenship. And who can measure the influence of 
the university president in this new day? — Thr Sur- 
veij, April 3d. 

Dr. James Sjirunt has added another contriliution 
to Cape Fear and Southern history in his new liook 
called Derelicts. For this and the Cape Fear Chron- 
icles we owe him a lasting debt of gratitude. He has 
gathered from man\' sources material which was in 
danger of dropping out of sight ; he has written well 
of things that were a matter of personal knowledge 
and vividly of his own experiences, and has placed all 
these on jiermanent record in a charming manner 
which is all his own. The story of the Derelicts is a 
most fascinating one, the mystery of the seas, the cool 
bravery and daring of the blackade-runners, the bull- 
dog tenacity to the dangerous calling, the hair- 
breadth escapes, the successes and the failures, all 
these, with love and tragedy, devoted ]iatriotism, the 
lure of gold, the call of adventnre, lie between the 
covers of this book. 

One can not lay it down without the desire to visit 
the shore along which some of these battered wrecks 
still lie half-buried in the sands and to dream again 
of tlie days of their high emprise to relieve a beleag- 
uered peoi)le, of their successes and their final disas- 
ter. Nor can one forego the hope that some day Dr. 
Sprunt will tell the story of that yfiung ]iurser of 



seventeeu, liis trips, liis aspirations, his early begin- 
nings in the rebuilding of the land he loved, the 
conditions which had to be faced, and the triumphant 
accomplishment in developing one of the largest in- 
dustries in the State and in the South. 

"Guide-Posts in Preparing Wills" (Barber Print- 
ing Company, Winston-Salem, N. C.) has recently 
been issued by A. H. Eller (U. N. C, '85), Trust 
Officer, and Gilbert T. Stephenson, Assistant Trust 
OlHcer, Wachovia Bank and Trust Co. It may be a 
subject for stvidy especiallj' by those who contemplate 
making in their wills a bequest to the University of 
North Carolina. 

Of the six articles in the current Studies in Phil- 
ologij (January, 1920), three are by professors, 
present and former, of this University. These articles, 
amply maintaining the high standards of the publica- 
tion, are: "A Welsh Tristan Episode," by T. P. 
Cross; "A Note on Old French 'Por— ' in English," 
by W. M. Dey; and "Forms of Asseverative and 
Abjurative Prepositional Phrases in Old Fi'eneh, " by 
0. Towles. 

A notable issue of the Proceedings of the State Lit- 
erary and Historical Association of North Carolina, 
compiled by the secretary, R. D. W. Connor, '99, is 
recently from the press (Edwards and Broughton, 
Raleigh. 1919). The nineteenth annual session, due 
on October 28-29, 1918, was not actuallj' held, owing 
to the prevalence of influenza, but the present publi- 
cation contains the addresses prepared for that occa- 
sion. The "Conference on Anglo-American Relations" 
constitutes a notable series of papers, of which the 
leading one is a scliolarlj- and suggestive paper by 
Professor Edwin Greenlaw: "Raleigh and British Im- 
perialism." Mention should be made, as well, of the 
presidential address by Mr. James Sprunt on "George 
Davis," as well as his Introductory to the "Confer- 
ence on Anglo-American Relations."' 

A little volume, which should be in the hands of 
every North Carolinian, is "Memorial Meeting: Wal- 
ter Hines Page," held at the Buile Presbyterian 
Church, N. Y.. April 25, 1919 (Doubleday, Page & 
Company). As frontispiece it contains a reproduc- 
tion of the painting by Lazlo in the American Em- 
bassy, London, of the late ambassador to the court of 
St. James, who sacrificed his strength, his health, his 
life, for his country and for clear relations between 

America and England. The meeting was presided 
over by Dr. B. A. Alderman, and addresses were de- 
livered by Dr. Alderman, Lord Reading, Secretary of 
State Lansing, Hon. William G. ilcAdoo, and Dr. 
Lyman Abbott. 

0. W. Hyman, A. B., 1910, A. M., 1911, has a paper 
in the Journal of Morphology (vol. 33, No. 2, 1920) 
entitled "The Development of Gelasiraus after Hatch- 
ing." The author describes with many figures the 
changes undergone by our three species of Gelasimus 
(fiddler crabs) during their larval life. The paper 
is based on. an investigation carried on through two 
summers at the U. S. Fisheries Biological Station 
at Beaufort, N. C. 

The Weil lectures for 1920 were delivered by Rob- 
ert Goodwyn Rhett, of Charleston, S. C, lawyer, 
banker, and former president of the national cham- 
ber of commerce. Mr. Rhett dealt in successive lec- 
tures with "Social America," "Political America," 
and "Industrial America." 

lu the Monist (vol. x.xx, No. 1, Januarj-, 1920), 
there is an interesting and thought-provoking contri- 
bution by Professor H. H. Williams: "What is a 
relation?" Proceeding to the question, following an- 
alysis of the definition of Kant, Coutural, and Royce, 
Professor Williams states that "relation is quantity." 
In a later issue, let us hope, he will exhibit the "move- 
ment of the Western mind to seize the relations in 
the changing world of life." 

A recent leaflet issued by the Bureau of Extension 
is entitled: "Our Heritage. A Study Through Lit- 
erature of the American Tradition," b.v Professor J. 
H. Hanford. The introduction, by Dr. Edwin Green- 
law, is an inspiring word of exposition and appeal, 
interpreting the larger meaning of the American 
soul, in the light of the newer ideals of freedom. This 
leaflet must prove to be of high value to the study 
clubs of the State. And anyone, old or young, will be 
sure to ])rofit by its perusal and study. 

A new and useful publication, "Laboratory Guide 
in General Botany," by Professor W. C. Coker and 
Mr. H. R. Totten, has recently been published by the 
authors, at Chapel Hill. This publication, which is 
complete and almost indispensable, doubtless grew 
out of the need felt by the class and instructors for 
just this sort of thing.

ing protagonist. As superintendent of the Charlotte schools

Using the X-Ray 
in th9 Home 

Greater X-ray Service— 

through Research 

FOR years after the discovery oi 
X-rays it was evident that only 
intensive research could unfold their 
real possibilities. 

Meanwhile, scientists of the General 
Electric Company developed the pro- 
cess of making wrought tungsten. 
This proved ideal as the target in 
X-ray tubes and its use for this pur- 
pose soon became universal. 

Then further research resulted in the 
development of an X-ray tube of a 
ladically new type — the Coolidge 
Tube— with both electrodes of 
wrought tungsten and containing 
the highest attainable vacuum. But 
the complication of high vacuum 
pumps made the new tube in large 


X-ray Tube 

quantities impossible. The answer 
to this problem was the Langmuir 
Condensation Pump, utilizing mer- 
cury vapor in its operation and 

almost automatic. 

To meet the need for simple X-ray 
apparatus during the war — the G-B 
Laboratory developed the Self- 
Rectifying Coolidge Tube, which 
made possible portable outfits at the 
front. The latest X-ray outfit of 
this type is so small it can be taken 
conveniently to the home or to the 
bedside in the hospital. 
Thus the Research Laboratory of 
the General Electric Company con- 
tinues to serve, that progress in 
things electrical may continue for 
the good of humanity.

The educational coinniittee of the South Atlantic 
States Assoeiatioii, nieetiuo' with the School of Com- 
merce at the University, April 28th, recommended to 
the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce that a 
district office be 'established in Atlanta and co-opera- 
tive offices in North and South Carolina and Florida, 
pr(>ferably at the state universities. The committee 
also prepared a course of study on foreign trade 
which it will recommend to colleges and many high 
schools in the South Atlantic States. Present were 
representatives of nine colleges. Professors D. ]). 
Carroll, Saville, and Cobb, represented the University. 
Matthew Hale, president of the South Atlantic States 
Association, presided, and Prof. J. M. Watters, of 
Georgia Tech, acted as secretar\-. 


The second series of North (.'arolina folk-lore plays 
l)rodueed by the Carolina Playmakers this year was 
shown at the Pla>"house, April 'M) and May 1, before 
large and appreciative audiences, and in Greensboro, 
May 8. The three one-act plays were "Dod Gast Ye 
liothl" by Hubert Heffner; "The Bell Ruoy." by 
Dougald McMillan; and "The Last of the Lowries, " 
by Paul Green. 

HeflFner's play, "Bod Gast Ye Both!" was a com- 
edy of mountain moonshiners and "revenoors, " the 
scene of which was a mountain still at night while a 
i-iiii was being nuule. A real, honest-to-goodness still, 
l)i}rrowed f(n' the occasion from Sheriff Rosemond, of 
Hillsboro (under promise of good behavior), formed 
a conspicuous i^art of the stage setting. The action 
took place near Lenoir, on the edge of Caldwell 
and Catawba counties, and was based on a real story. 
An old moonshiner with 30 years experience, was the 
central character, ably played by George Denny, and 
the love affair of his daughter with a supposed "reve- 
iioor. ' who holds up the still in operation, furnishes 
the plot. 

McMillan's "The Bell Buoy" was a bleak tragedy 
of the land pirates near Nag's Head and the sup- 
liosed death of Theodosia Burr on the Carolina coast 
in 1812. The acting of Mildred Sherrill, Elizabeth 
Taylor, and Joanthan Daniels stood out as excellent. 

The famous outlaw Lowries, part Croatan Indians, 
of Robeson county, vi-ho from the early 1860's luitil 
1874 terrorized the eoimtr.yside and defied officers 
of the law from their stronghold in ScufiSetown 
swamp, formed the background of the third piny. 
Elizabeth Taylor's work was again effective, and the 
set, designed by Elizabeth Lay, was exceptionally well

The News and Observer recently had this to -.-ny 
in its editoi'ial pages concerning Majoi' Charles 
Alaidy Stedman, class of ISKl, rejiresentative of the 
lifth X. C. district in the national House of Repre- 
sentatives : 

Of all the delegation in Congress from North Caro- 
lina no one is more cordial and interesting than 
Charles M. Stedman, of the Fifth District. He is one 
of the few Confederate soldiers still prominent in 
government service. At his next birthday Ma.ioi- 
Stedman will be eighty years of age, as he was born 
at Pittsboro in IS^l. In 1S57 he entered the Univer- 
sity and was in the class that graduated in IStil. He 
enlisted in the Fayetteville light infantry and stayed 
in the army until the surrender. Three times he was 
wotuided, but he has sui'vived the hostilities. He was 
lieutenant-govenior in 1884 and in the disturbe^l 
politics of 1888 failed only narrowly of being gov- 
ernor. He is serving his fifth consecutive term in 
Congress where he is looked tipon as one of the cap- 
able members of his party and representatives of his 
section. Major Stedman has lived through a period 
that has covered four wars. In two of them he has 
been extremely active. In the one he was a soldier 
from the start to the finish. In the other he was an 
im]3ortant member f)f Congress during the entire per- 
iod of the trouble. At present he is a member of the 
committee on foreign affairs. But above all of these 
he is still a fine old North Carolina neighbor with a 
greeting to the Tar Heel who hapjiens to meet him in 
Washington nr the home folks aroinid Greensboro 
when he gets away from the Cajiitol and back to the 
old sod. Congress without Ma.ior Stedman would not 
seem natural to the man from North Carolina. 

The track team won its first meet from Trinity, 
70 to 5fi, but trailed a bad second in a three-cornered 
meet which was won by Virginia, who scored 77 points 
to 27 for Carolina and 23 for V. M. I. Captain Spen- 
cer won the pole vault in this meet. The State meet 
at Chapel Hill, May 1st, was won by Carolina with 
52 points against 28 U for Trinity, 28 for A. and E.,

Another study by Professor E. W. Knight, in the 
tield of the history of educational development in the 
South, is "Reconstruction and Education in South 
Carolina" (South Atlantic Quarterli/, xviii. No. 4, 
October, 1919, and xix, No. 1, January, 1920). In 
this stimulating- (>ssay, effectively written and accu- 
rately based upon the sources, Dr. Knight has pointed 
out that "the reconstruction period was not without 
some valuable educational effect in So\ith Carolina," 
but "that it was many years . . . before confi- 
dence could be restored and the princijile of univer- 
sal and free education could gather sufficient strength 
to give it wide acceptance and jiopular ajijiroval."

A Pioneer in the Stoker Field 

Westhiyliouse was one of tlie first among the pioneers in 
tlic stoker iield. 

Altliongli power stations liave grown to enormous size, 
with sudden jjeak loads in some instances reaching as high as 
300 and 41.10 per cent normal rating, the remarkable fact re- 
mains that the design of the Westinghouse Roney Stoker rL-niaiiis today practically the same as it was thirty-three 
years ago and that it still retains its firm position in the cmilnistion field. This speaks for the accuracy of the original 
design. The Eoney Stoker is particularly suitable for stea ly power demands with moderate overloads" of 2.j to .JU per 
cent, and it burns a wide range of fuels satisfactorily. Simide design, low first cost and ease of installation, strongly 
recommend it for plants of moderate size. Over three milli ui horsepower have been installed. 

Industrial expansion, however, has wrought many changes in power plant practice since 1887. Today mechanical 
stokers arc called upon to burn everything from high-gradj coals down to refuse. They are also called upon to meet 
the sudden and enormous steauiiug capacities. Hence, two additional stokers were added, and our line now includes 
the Chain Grate Stoker, particularly adapted to the burning of low-grade, high-ash fuels; and the Underfed Stoker, 
whicli is unequalled in its ability to handle the sudden and enormous overload demands of central station service with 
the highest degree of efficiency. 

It is a fact of vital importance to the stoker buyer that we 
manufacture the three general types, because stoker applica- 
tion should be approached with an open mind and the stoker 
manufacturer should be guided in his recommendations purely 
by the facts that develop from a study of fuel and load re-

The Mixing House Grew 

The men in the dynamite mixing house work to- 
gether with the smoothness of an eight oared crew — 
without apparent hurry and yet without a waste 
motion. There is never a suggestion of confusion 
or uncertainty. Each man does his appointed tasks 
with the precision and alertness of the trained 
powder worker. 

These men must not only work smoothly, but they 
must think quickly in order that nothing may go amiss 
without their instantly detecting and correcting it. 
They must know the weights and proportions of 
dope* and nitroglycerin used to produce the many 
different grades of dynamite, and their correct action 
under the great rubber-shod wheels. Any slip of 
theirs here will quickly be brought to light by the 
chemists' analysis. 

It has t.iken years of patient work and careful experimenting 
to bring this seemingly simple mixing process to its present 
]ierfection. But no matter how perfectly the machine does 
its work it would be of little avail without the skill and 
practical knowledge of the mixing house crew. 

To the men in the mixing house is due, in no small measure, 
the credit for the important work done by Hercules Dynamite 
as it fights on the side of man in his battle with nature — level- 
ing mountains, altering the courses of rivers, changing the 
farmers' arid land into fruitful fields, in fact performing for man 
tremendous tasks which he could never accomplish unaided.
