A Record Smasher 

In SEPTEMBER men and women in North Carolina applied to the JEFFERSON 
STANDARD for $5,265,750 life insurance — a record never before attained by any company 
operating in any Southern State. It is an unparalleled endorsement of the greatest of the 
Southern life insurance companies. 

UNIVERSITY MEN, through the UNIVERSITY AGENCY, applied for over $200,000 
during the month of September. "We are here to render service to Carolina students and 
alumni. We want your co-operation in protecting homes and business and in the upbuilding 
of the State. We thank you for the part you played in our September campaign. 

Come to see us and let's talk over your needs for protection now. Let us show you today 
how you can guarantee the fulfillment of your obligations of tomorrow. Write to us or call

We need have nothing to fear from any party or 
politician when we make liberal provision for educa- 
tion. — C. B. Aycock. 

A Christian may as well say that the Church is too 
poor to be honest as for a citizen of North Carolina to 
say that the State is too poor to educate, and to the 
limit of its desire. — E. K. Graham. 

The quality of the teaching of the University of 
North Carolina is unusually fine. The housing con-

as unfit to live in when I was a student here in 1886. 
— Haywood Parker.

To reach out and serve the people of the State in other 
ways, when she is literally "hog tied?" — Tar Heel. 

There is in all the world of education today no 
greater responsibility than that which rests upon 
the State Universities of the South. They must serve 
and guide and interpret to itself and to the world a 
new civilization which is yet in the making. — H. W. 

I should like to see every county in the State build 
a dormitory at Chapel Hill to house such of its young 
people as desire to enter them and then for our legis- 
lature to forget the past and make appropriations 
commensurate with the needs and at the same time 
a determined effort be made to increase the opportun- 
ities of our several colleges. — Mary Mendenhall 

In its spirit of democracy, j r our University is the 
equal of any college or university in the United States 
or in the world. When you consider how indispensa- 
ble this spirit of democracy is to the life of your 
State and to the nation, you will realize what a fine 
thing it is that your future leaders are being trained 
up in an atmosphere of this kind. — John R. Mott. 

For 'the interests of our people it is imperative that 
we bring our State University to the full equal of 
Harvard, Yale, the University of Michigan or the 
University of Wisconsin, and our State Agricultural 
and Mechanical College to be the equal of the Rens- 
selaer Polytechnic Institute, the Columbia School of 
.Mines, or tin' Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 
— D. A. Tompkins. 

The supreme problem in North Carolina today is to 
reconcile two mutually contradictory facts : the splen- 
did circumstance that North Carolina in agricultural 



resources is fourth from the top in the United States gap, this yawning crevasse, between progress and re- 
am! the humiliating circumstance that North Carolina action, beween our financial wealth and educational 
in illiteracy is fourth from the bottom in the United poverty, between our agricultural glory and our cul- 
States. Our problem is to bridge over this hideous tural shame. — Archibald Henderson. 


Forty-three alumni dropped their day's work on 
October 2nd and rushed to Chapel Hill in response to 
the call of Alma Mater in the 
The Emergency throes of a congestion of life 

Alumni Conference and an over-strain of equip- 
ment. They came from moun- 
tains and sea-shore, piedmont and plain. In the 
presence of urgent facts they grouped their loyalty, 
their minds, and their wills. They enlisted for a 
cause — the cause of youth in North Carolina. They 
came to find out and they went back to start some- 
thing. They did. They broke out all over North 


University Day, October 12th, witnessed a very 
uprising of the alumni of the University. Greens- 
boro fired the opening gun, October 
The 11th. An enthusiastic meeting there 

Breaking Out of University alumni went into execu- 
tive session and planned for a state- 
wide public educational crusade that would top it- 
self in a greater University. The Charlotte alumni 
in devoted meeting October 12th stated the cause of 
the University in robust resolutions shot through with 
vivid needs. The Raleigh alumni projected in a big 
way figures of urgent needs and imperative growth. 
The Hillsboro alumni sent a vigorous telegram to 
every other alumni association in North Carolina and 
are following this with a letter to all the alumni. 

From Asheville to Wilmington alumni associations 
connected filial loyalty with the present crisis. Orange, 
Buncombe, Rutherford, Mecklenburg, Forsyth, Scot- 
land, Guilford, Rockingham, Durham, Wake, Harnett, 
Wayne, Cumberland, Richmond, Gaston, Lee, Edge- 
combe, Chowan and New Hanover Alumni Associa- 
tions faced the critical facts and enthusiastically com- 
mitted themselves as individuals and groups, as citi- 
zens and alumni, to the compelling cause of the youth 
of North Carolina. 


It is expected that every alumni association in 
North Carolina will meet this fall. The health of our 

youth, the life of the University, and the 
Carrying future of North Carolina are all congested 
Through together in the crowded dormitories of the 

University. No alumni association in this 
State will stand aside and break the chain of fighting 
units in this crusade for youth and the Common- 
wealth. The Central Alumni Committee reports 

action all along the line. Send a message from the 
field to the committee and share your ideas and plans 
with other associations. 


The following telegram as the result of the October 
12th meeting was sent by the Hillsboro Alumni Asso- 
ciation to every other alumni associa- 
The Hillsboro tion of University men : 
Telegram "As next door neighbors of the 

University and eye-witnesses of the 
congestion and overstrain of life there, we are over- 
whelmed with the fact that the University is in a 
crisis. We urge that you let the people have the facts 
in your town and county papers. The people will do 
the rest." 

(Signed) Hillsboro Alumni Association. 


Here on the campus University Day, 1920, had a 
significance peculiarly its own. The academic pro- 
cession entered the doors of Memorial 
William Hall as of yore. The maples along 

Richardson Cameron Avenue flamed with October 
Davie scarlet and gold. But the real thought 

of the sons of the University centered on 
the name of General William Richardson Davie, the 
Father and founder of the University, and the quality 
of statesmanship possessed more than a century and 
a quarter ago by this distinguished, far-visioned 
North Carolinian and American. 

The immediate attention of the day was concerned 
with the presentation and acceptance of the Davie 
portrait, the generous gift of Mr. Alwyn Ball. But 
the thought which intrigued the imagination was that 
12(i years ago Davie's dream took form and substance 
in dormitories and recitation halls for the generations 
of North Carolinians then to be. The concern which 
dominated the thought of the University on October 
12th was how, with statesmanship like that of Davie, 
it might make certain for present and future gener- 
ations a more ample, finer training. 


The facts about the University which President 
Chase, Business Manager Woollen, and the alumni 
committee prepared for the information of 
Boys, Get the alumni should be known in every home 
the Facts in North Carolina. These facts make clear 
the imperative need for the tripling of the 
University plant. The feeding and sleeping arrange- 



merits, if doubled today, would not be abreast of the 
sudden congestion of the last two years. Add to the 
present congestion the wonderfully increasing output 
of the public high schools and the figures will no 
longer admit of small and gradual increases in appro- 
priations. The needs are tremendous and the pro- 
vision should be of the size of the needs. Let's face 
the needs in a big way. Boys, get the facts ! 

□ □□ 

That the University of North Carolina is daily 
growing into a larger institution and functioning as 
a representative University is no 
A Greater where more definitely indicated 

Graduate School than in the growth and effective- 
ness of its Graduate School. On 
October 11, according to statistics given out, 123 
graduate students from 10 states had registered since 
the opening of the Summer School ((30 odd being now 
in residence) and were pursuing courses leading to 
the Master's and Doctor's degrees. 

The full significance of this substantial growth 
doubtless may not be instantly "obvious to the alumni. 
But the fact that 10 states are represented in its mem- 
bership means that the quality of teaching of the Uni- 
versity, the scholarly character of its publications, 
and the resources of its laboratories and libraries are 
becoming widely and favorably known throughout the 
country. It also means that in aiding 123 young 
men and women to continue their training in North 
Carolina the teaching profession of the South is to be 
greatly strengthened and that a foundation for real 
achievement in the arts and sciences is at last defi- 
nitely laid. 

For the alumni and the State it has an added signi- 
ficance. If it is to do its work thoroughly it must be 
provided with ample facilities. Fellowships, library 
endowments, a scholarly press, all are essential to its 
best work, and all must be provided in due course.

Some ten days ago The Review upon the receipt 
of one of the first copies of the book "Raleigh, the 
Shepherd of the Ocean," by Professor 
Failed to F. H. Koch, professor of dramatic liter- 
Carry Our ature in the University and director of 
Trade Mark the Raleigh pageant, wrote the firm 
which printed it somewhat as follows:. 
"May we congratulate you on having brought out the 
most attractive piece of bookmaking North Carolina 
has yet produced ? ' ' 

The point we make here is not that we were attempt- 
ing to say a pretty speech; but rather that through 
the co-operation of University teachers and a well 
equipped printing house, North Carolina has produc- 
ed a book which in its physical makeup was second 
to none in the country. 

The real point we are getting at is that the book 
would have been perfect had it only carried on the 
bottom of the title page the imprint: Chapel Hill, 
The University of North Carolina Press, 1020. 

Had the University been able last spring to under- 
write the University Press idea this book, which be- 
comes the first offering in the great tercentenary cele- 
bration now being participated in by America, would 
have carried the University's imprint, its trade mark, 
to the four corners of the world. It would have help- 
ed sell the University of North Carolina to the scholar- 
ly world — a thing certainly to be desired, or rather 
In lie done on all occasions. 


Phases of the problem of selling the University 
advantageously to other groups than the scholarly 
world may well merit consideration at 
Not to be this time. The committee on alumni 
Overlooked organization is on the job as far as the 
alumni are concerned. The alumni, in 
turn, are expected to send in the orders from the 
State at large. 

But a matter of tremendous concern in these days 
of congestion and incident overstrain is how the Uni- 
versity is selling itself to itself — the student body 
and the faculty. 

It must be remembered that Gerrard Hall accom- 
modates only freshmen at chapel. The upper-class- 
men and professional students cannot be brought to- 
gether except in Memorial Hall which can be used 
only in October and April-June. Obviously under 
these circumstances the University runs a great risk 
of lowered student morale. 

It must further be remembered that the faculty, 
in its housing conditions, in its dearth of classrooms, 
in its lack of laboratory space, library requirements, 
and facilities of every conceivable sort, should receive 
every possible consideration which can in any degree 
alleviate the situation. Certainly every effort should 
be made by the administrative offices, particularly 
those that deal with light, and heat, and fuel, and 
laboratory and office supplies and equipment, to 
cut the burden to the minimum, and instantly. 

To fail to sell the finest sort of Carolina to the stu- 
dent body and to the faculty will be nothing short of

General Julian S. Carr, '66, passed his 75th anni- 
versary on Friday, October 15th, at his home in 

Durham, the day being made the 
General Carr's occasion on which his fellow towns- 
Birthday Party men and the citizenship of the State 

in general turned aside from their 
usual activities and paid him signal honor. 



The Review only occasionally pauses to note the 
anniversaries of alumni. But in this instance it can- 
not refrain from wishing General Carr many happy 
returns and it congratulates him upon having been 
made the object of such a beautiful expression of gen- 
uine regard as that shown him by those among whom 
he has spent his days. 

Furthermore, it points with gratification to some 
of his services to his community and the State by 
which his career has been marked, a brief recital of 
which was given by those offering public felecitations 
at the party. First of all, he has been one of the 
builders of industrial Durham. His chain of mills 
and the First National Bank represent solid indus- 
trial and financial achievement. Carr and Trinity 
churches bear testimony to his devotion to the reli- 

gious welfare of his community. In 1897 he built for 
his city North Carolina's first public library. "When 
Trinity College was moved from Randolph County to 
Durham he gave the land which now constitutes the 
Trinity campus and endowed the Carr Chair of Phil- 
osophy. In 1900 his gift of the Carr Building to the 
University ushered in the new building era on this 
campus. And only this spring he served as president 
of an association that led the movement resulting in 
the subscription of $200,000 for the Southgate Mem- 
orial building which is to be erected on the Trinity 

We make no effort to recount the long list of his 
various benefactions or labors for the public welfare. 
As a fellow alumnus we simply contemplate them and 
find satisfaction in them. 


Forty-three Alumni Come to Special Conference to Consider Crisis 

at the University 

In response to an urgent telegram from President 
Chase forty-three alumni from Wilmington to Marion 
dropped their work on October 2nd and came to 
Chapel Hill to meet with the President and a local 
committee of the faculty and students to consider 
the present overcrowded and undermanned condi- 
tions at the University and to suggest ways and means 
for the alumni particularly and the University gen- 
erally to handle what President Chase called "the 
present intolerable situation." 

They had dinner at the Coop, heard the situation 
outlined by Professor W. S. Bernard, who acted as 
chairman, by President Chase, by T. C. Taylor, a 
Senior in the University, and by Professor Frank 
Graham; and then discussed and debated the whole 
matter until 1 A. M. 

"It was without question the most earnest, most 
enthusiastic, and most seriously-minded, determined 
alumni meeting I have ever seen, and it was the larg- 
est in point of numbers that has ever met at Chapel 
Hill except on stated occasions like commencement," 
said one professor afterward. His opinion was shar- 
ed imanimously. 

Program of Work Outlined 

The concrete action of the meeting, which of course 
was acting informally and without authority from 
the General Alumni Association, was summed up in 
the following resolutions presented by K. S. Royall, 
of Goldsboro, and amended by L. P. McLendon, of 
Durham : 

1. Resolved, That the University alumni of every 
county in the state, or the alumni in the cities of 
those counties where city meetings are more practi- 
cable, have a meeting on October 12, and that at said 

meeting there be presented in as forcible manner as 
possible the pressing needs of the University: 

2. Resolved, That such alumni as are present take 
active charge of calling and holding said meetings in 
their respective counties and cities; 

3. Resolved further, That there be appointed a com- 
mittee resident in Chapel Hill, the function of which 
shall be to arrange for the said meetings on October 
12 and other meetings and to furnish said meetings 
with data as to the needs of the University; and that 
said committee in order to arrange meetings on Octo- 
ber 12 in counties not represented at the conference, 
be authorized to call on any alumnus present tonight 
to aid in arranging for such meetings in adjoining or 
neighboring counties ; 

4. Resolved further, That at said meetings on Oc- 
tober 12 definite arrangements be made for a county 
or city educational rally at a date to be fixed by the 
aforesaid Chapel Hill committee, or in the discretion 
of said Chapel Hill committee, by the respective alum- 
ni meetings ; and that the purpose of this rally be to 
spread the message of higher educational need 
throughout the communities of the state ; that there 
be invited to the said rally the alumni and alumnae of 
the other state institutions and by special or general 
invitation such other persons interested in educational 
development of the state as shall to the alumni meet- 
ing seem desirable ; 

5. Resolved further, That at each of the alumni 
meetings on October 12 definite arrangements be 
made for another county or city meeting during the 
Christmas holidays, that at said meeting during the 
holidays such steps be taken or planned as will in the 
judgment of the meeting present to the Legislature 
in the most formidable way the needs of the Univer- 
sity, and will suggest to the Legislature a definite 
plan by which such needs can be met ; 

6. Resolved further, That for the purpose of form- 
ing definite plans to present to the Legislature the 
President of the University be asked to confer if 
possible with the heads of the other state institutions 



of higher education and arrange an outline of the 
needs of all these institutions. 

President Chase Presents Situation 

Aside from these resolutions a great deal was said 
and discussed concerning the general situation and 
the best way of handling it. At the start Professor 
Bernard told in general terms why the meeting was 
called and what the University was facing because 
of the overwhelming demand that was being made 
upon it. President Chase in greater detail outlined 
the situation from the University's point of view. 
' He pointed out that dormitories built to accommo- 
date 469 students were actually housing 738 and 
doing this by crowding, in many instances, four stu- 
dents in rooms designed for two, and this without 
counting the rooms in the town of Chapel Hill, many 
of them unclean, unsanitary, unfit in every way for 
living purposes ; that dining halls designed for 450 
were actually feeding 725 ; that, not counting the 
scientific and professional buildings the rooms in 
which could not be used for other purposes, there 
were only 19 class rooms available for general teach- 
ing purposes ; and that he regarded it as impossible 
to hold together the faculty at the present salary 

On top of that he told in some detail, backing his 
statements in every instance with actual figures, how 
the demand for accommodations was increasing every 
year because of the increased output of high school 
graduates. "Five years ago the four-year public 
schools of the state turned out 800 graduates ; last 
year they turned out 3,000 graduates, and they are 
just beginning to get in smooth working order," he 
said. "These high schools have now some 26,000 stu- 
dents and the number is increasing and is going to 
increase every year in the future." 

He said that every institution of higher learning 
in the state was filled, that the situation at the Uni- 
versity was reflected in every other college for men or 

women in the state, including the denominational col- 
leges, and ended by saying: ''Nothing short of a revo- 
lution in higher education will handle this situation 
in North Carolina." 

T. C. Taylor, a senior, followed President Chase by 
an intimate and vivid story of the actual living con- 
ditions of the students, with shortages everywhere 
and overcrowding on every side. Professor Frank 
Graham followed both talks with an appeal for action 
that reached every man in the room. 

Frank Graham Says State Will Do Its Part 

"This is a state- wide crisis," he said. "Smaller 
groups than this with facts less vital than these have 
urged themselves into the life and decisions of people. 
With youth as our cause and with youth in our fight- 
ing ranks we cannot fail. 

"North Carolina is saying politically, not con- 
sciously, but in actual results, that a North Carolina 
boy is not worth as much as boys in other states. 
Youth in North Carolina is stimulated to higher edu- 
cation and then has the door shut in his face by the 
state which pointed him the way. Says the state to 
her sons in sacred paraphrase, 'I go to prepare a 
place for you and if it were not true I would have 
told you. ' We do not prepare the place and we dare 
not tell them. 

"If the issue be the privilege of the few as opposed 
to the rights of all, we shall join the fight there. If 
the issue is taxes, we shall call it taxes and not beat 
around the bush of expediency. We will not tamely 
submit to the issue : more buildings or less boys. If 
it is a question of exemption of property or redemp- 
tion of youth, North Carolina will vote for her youth. 

"Without apology to faction, sect, or party, taking 
no counsel of fainthearted pessimism, you are the 
evangels of a cause as wide and deep in its justice as 
the full glad life of youth. If we but strike out bold- 
ly, we shall find the people in heroic mood for a 
Crusade more Christ-like than that which impelled its 

The Raleigh Eoad 



thousands across Europe to death in the Holy Land. 
The Son of Man cares more for crowded dormitories 
than for an empty sepulchre. Suffer the youth of 
North Carolina to come unto the colleges and forbid 
them not, for of such is the kingdom of tomorrow." 

General Discussion 

For two hours the situation was discussed from 
every possible angle. Judge Winston in an impas- 
sioned declaration of faith in the University declared 
that on the issue of its immediate development he 
would stump the state from one end to the other. Bob 
House and Luther Hodges emphasized the universal 
need for educational facilities in all the colleges and 
the necessity of linking up all commmaities in the 
movement. M. L. John pointed out the state's need 
for school teachers for its public schools. ' ' Where can 
we get them if not from the University? and how can 
we expect them from the University under the present 
conditions?" he asked. Brent Drane said that the 
University was the great unifying and democratiz- 
ing agency in the state. "In the present-day out- 
burst of state wealth it becomes more and more es- 
sential that we should keep alive this force," he said. 

Give the People Facts 
Charles Tillett, Jr., Oscar Coffin, and Dr. Gerald 
Murphy pointed out the necessity of laying the situa- 
tion before the people in newspapers and discussed the 
best methods. C. F. Harvey emphasized the neces- 
sity of all the alumni uniting on the educational 
effort. Tom 'Berry, I. M. Bailey and Dick Wharton 
suggested concrete methods of action by alumni in 
meeting the situation and L. P. McLendon and Fred 
Archer suggested methods by which the administra- 
tive departments of the colleges could take action.

Manager Woollen, Professors Bernard, Graham, 
Noble, Patterson, Knight, Henderson, L. R. Wilson, 
Bradshaw, Rankin, and Chambers. 


The class of 1916 began preparations for its five 
year reunion a year in advance with the holding last 
commencement of a meeting of the committee on per- 
manent organization. W. B. Umstead, chairman, 
Robert B. House, and Francis 0. Clarkson, compris- 
ing the committee, Francis F. Bradshaw and Oliver 
Smith assembled under the old elm behind the Old 
West and laid plans for the organization of a reunion 
that would be worthy of the class of '16. 

In accordance with the plans formulated by this 
committee there has gone to each of the 250 men who 
entered in 1912 a letter telling him of the plans for 
the reunion, asking him for suggestions, and a ques- 
tionnaire to be filled out with information which will 
bring each man's record since leaving the University 
up to date. War service, occupation, wounds, mar- 
riage, and children are some of the various classes 
of statistics sought. The committee plans to publish 
by Christmas a catalogue of the class summarizing the 
information secured through this questionnaire. 

In connection with the reunion plans the committee 
is reorganizing the collection machinery which is to 
provide the University with a large addition to the 
Alumni Loyalty Fund at the tenth year reunion. At 
commencement of 1916 all the members of the class 
signed ten notes of $4.00 each maturing at successive 
University birthdays, and insured the three perma- 
nent class officers to the amount of $2,500.00, an 
endowment policy maturing in ten years. During the 
first year the class paid one and one-half premiums 
and this fine record was continued until the war called 
nearly every man in the class to its all-absorbing tasks, 
and payment of the notes lagged. G. Claiborne 
Royall, the class treasurer, promises to have the pay- 
ments up to date when the class meets in June, 1921. 

The exact form which the meeting next June will 
take is a matter of great mystery. The class of 1911, 
which had such a record-breaking stunt in nineteen- 
sixteen comes again this year, and the class of '16 
which saw the good reunion on their senior year has 
sworn a mighty oath to go them one better. The 
committee has a plan 'tis said which will do this. 
The 1911 men say it cannot be done. For the result 
we will have to wait until next commencement and 

Trinity won at tennis from the University, Oct. 
9th by taking three matches to two. The sixth match 
was called off on account of darkness. 




Portrait of General William Richardson Davie, Father of the 
University, is Formally Presented 

General William Richardson Davie, who on October 
12, 1793, laid with his own hands the cornerstone 
of the Old East Building, the first building erected 
by any state university in America, received on Oc- 
tober 12, 1920, University Day, the full tribute of 
the University he founded 127 years ago. 

Surrounded by the folds of the American flag, 
which he helped to plant firmly on this continent, the 
only existing life-sized portrait of Davie, made from 
life, was formally presented and formally received 
by the University on the platform of Memorial Hall 
from the walls of which looked down memorial tab- 
lets sacred to the fame of many of Davie's contem- 

The portrait was the gift of Mr. J. Alwyn Ball, 
of Charleston, S. C, whose wife, Emilie G. Praser, 
was a grand-daughter of Davie's. It was presented 
by the Rev. William Way, rector of Grace Church, 
Charleston, and was accepted for the University by 
Mr. J. 0. Carr, of Wilmington. 

Winding across the campus under the trees with 
their first flush of autumn and past the historic pop- 
lar which bears Davie's name, the academic pro- 
cession, students and faculty, marched to Memorial 
Hall for the day's exercises. The Rev. Mr. Moss, 
of Chapel Hill, said the invocation. 

Mr. Way Makes Presentation Address 
In his presentation Mr. Way traced the history of 
the portrait from the time it was made in Paris in 
1800 when Davie was a commissioner sent by Presi- 
dent Adams to the French government, down through 
the Davie family until it came into the possession of 
Mrs. Ball. For many years it remained at "Trivoli," 
the family home of the Davies in Chester County, 
South Carolina. The portrait then belonged to 
Davie's son, Frederick William Davie, and by him it 
was buried during the Civil War, with other family 
possessions, on the banks of the Catawba River. 

From Frederick William Davie it descended to his 
wife, Mary Fredericka Fraser Davie, and from her to 
Emilie G. Fraser, who married J. Alwyn Ball, the 
donor. Mrs. Ball died in January, 1920. 

Work of Chretien 
The portrait is the work of the French artist, Giles 
Louis Chretien. For many years it was thought to be 
the work of Saint Memin, another French artist, but 
recent investigations by art critics show it to be un- 
questionably the work of Chretien, who also made 
portraits of such notable Frenchmen as Robespierre, 
Mirabeau, and Marat. It is life-sized and is in an 

oval frame, thought to be the original frame, the 
whole being about 30 inches in height. 

J. O. Carr Accepts Portrait 

Mr. Carr, in accepting the portrait, told of Davie's 
high political ideals. 

' ' On the whole there was no phase of public thought 
with which he was not acquainted and no problem of 
which he was not master," he said. "North Carolina 
has produced a score or more of really great men, all 
noted in their respective spheres and each excelling 
the other in some peculiar way; but it may well be 
doubted if any one has impressed his views upon the 
life of the state to the extent of General Davie. For 
more than twenty years after the revolution, he steer- 
ed the making of our laws along lines charted by our 
constitution; as a lawyer he moulded the decisions of 
our courts in laying the foundations for the best we 
have in law; and as an educator his ideals have in- 
fluenced the life of the University for more than a 

President Chase Spoke 

Following these two talks, President Chase spoke 
as follows : 

This portrait, so generously given, so fittingly pre- 
sented and accepted, has now become one of the most 
cherished possessions of the University. It only re- 
mains for me to remind you how altogether appro- 
priate it is that this symbol of such a man should 
have come to us at such a time. The portrait of the 
man whose courage and vision ensured the founding 
of the University has become hers on a day when she 
stands at a turning-point in her history, at a time 
when the thought of what this man dreamed and what 
he did is destined to prove a strength and inspiration 
to us all. 

What a vision was his ! What think you of the men 
who founded her, in a forest glade, the first State 
University in all the Nation? What shall we say of 
him who had the courage to insist, in his troubled 
day, that if this new State of North Carolina were 
to become great, she must provide from the outset 
for higher education for her sons? 

Consider but for a moment the difficulties which 
Inset him. Here was land in plenty, thanks to the 
generosity of the citizens of this place. At the dis- 
posal of the University were a few thousand dollars, 
most of it an uncertain asset, on much of it the in- 
terest alone available. At her disposal, too, was a 
loan of ten thousand dollars from the General Assem- 
bly for buildings — a loan which Davie himself had 
fought through against heavy opposition, a loan which 
later was made a gift. Forest land, a little money, a 
legislative loan, a great vision, and a man who pro- 
posed to fashion out of these a noble and enduring in- 
stitution for the service of this State! A man whose 
vision was a hundred years in advance of the thought 



of his time. For, after that autumn day in 1792 
when Davie rested beneath the Poplar which bears 
his name, eighty-nine years were to pass before the 
State would begin to make from its treasury an annual 
appropriation for its University. The entire Nine- 
teenth Century was to come and go before the State 
would add a dollar for buildings to the ten thousand 
that Davie had secured. 

But for him there was no faltering, no compromise, 
no thought of delay until a more convenient sea=>on, 
when times should be more assured. His was a swift 
clean thrust home to the very heart of things. He 
took his stand on nothing less than a principle, and 
that principle was the absolute necessity, in a demo- 
cratic State, of provision for higher education, re- 
gardless of difficulties, regardelss of time and season. 

Was he right ? I offer but one bit of evidence ; the 
mute testimony of the names of the sons of this Uni- 
versity that are carven on the tablets of this hall. 
There they stand, for all men to read and ponder the 
service of this University to its State and its Nation. 
Has the hope of Davie been justified? Has the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina been worth while? Has it 
been faithful to the high cause to which it was dedi- 
cated? I think that were Davie here today he would 
stand up and answer that it has. 

History has witnessed that Davie was right. He 
was right because his ground was the firm ground 
of principle, not the shifting sand of expediency. And 
today, when the University of his vision is over- 
whelmed by its very success, crowded beyond its 
capacity, no longer capable of opening its doors to 
all youth of the State who are knocking for admit- 
tance, on fire with a passion for service that must of 
necessity be repressed and restrained — what, think 
you, would be Davie's response to such a challenge? 
Can you doubt his reply ? Can j-ou doubt the reply of 
any man who, like him really believes that it is the 
duty of the State to educate its youth? This Uni- 
versity of the State, this University that is the reali- 
zation of what Davie hoped and dreamed, asks but 
that she be set free to do adequately her task. If 
higher education is really worth while, if the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina is worth while, the issue 
must be squarely met, as Davie would have met it. 
It must be met in the spirit that sets above every 
other consideration the fulfilment of a just and right- 
eous principle.

North Carolina, 6 — Wake Forest, 

The University opened the football season on Emer- 
son Field, October 2, with an unsatisfactory victory 
over Wake Forest, 6 to 0. It was unsatisfactory be- 
cause though Carolina had several opportunities to 
score, she did not, with the exception of the drive for 
the single touchdown, .show the power to carry an as- 
sault through to the goal line. Up to the 20 yard 
line she could rush the ball without great trouble. But 
with a score in sight and with a natural stiffening of 
the defense the game showed no increase of driving 
power in either line or backfield at a time when in- 
crease was necessary. 

North Carolina, 0— Yale, 21 

A.gains1 Vale, in the second game of the season, Oc- 
tober 9, at New Haven, the University just missed 
playing a wonderful game and by the same token 
just missed winning. Yale won, 21 to 0. 

North Carolina, 7 — South Carolina, 

The University won the third game of the season 
from South Carolina, 7 to 0; the game was played on 
Emerson Field, October 16. 




Alumni Associations Throughout the State Hold Big Meetings in 
Celebration of University Day 

In celebration of the one hundred and twenty- 
seventh anniversary of the founding of the Univer- 
sity, meetings of local alumni associations were held 
throughout the State. The meetings this year were 
the most numerous, best attended, and most enthusi- 
astic in the history of the University. The Review 
records herewith brief accounts of the various gather- 
ings and banquets which were held by Carolina men 
in celebration of this anniversary occasion. 


The Mecklenburg County Alumni Association, the largest 
county association in the State, held a most successful ban- 
quet on October 12th in the assembly room of the Chamber of 
Commerce in Charlotte. Seventy-five alumni were present to 
partake of the turkey dinner and to take part in the counsels 
and deliberations of the body. 

H. P. Harding, president of the association, was toast- 
master, and Dr. Archibald Henderson, head of the department 
of mathematics in the University, made the principal address. 
Dr. Henderson gave a graphic presentation to the alumni of the 
present desperate crisis in the University's life. He pointed 
out that several million dollars is required to make the Uni- 
versity plant adequate to meet the demands that are being 
made on it now. "No democratic state," he asserted, "can 
become or remain permanently great which denies to its youth 
the right and privilege of higher education for constructive 
leadership and the practice of the enfranchising duties of so- 
cial morality and good citizenship ' '. Stirring resolutions 
were adopted by the association calling upon the Mecklenburg 
representatives in the General Assembly to take steps for se- 
eming from the State necessary facilities and funds for the 

Brent S. Drane, Lawrence S. Holt, Jr., visiting alumnus 
from Burlington, John Tillett and Francis 0. Clarkson made 
reports of the alumni conference held in Chapel Hill October 
2d. Paul C. Whitlock spoke of the establishment of the school 
of commerce, and W. M. Jones gave a report on athletics. 
Dr. Alexander Graham, D. B. Smith, W. R. Matthews and 
Col. T. L. Kirkpatrick made talks, also. The alumni showed 
keenly their continued, deep concern over Alma Mater's pres- 
ent crisis. 

Rev. W. A. Jenkins, '07, was elected president of the 
association. E. Y. Keesler, '14, was elected vice-president 
and M. R. Dunnagan, '14, was chosen secretary. 


The Harnett County Alumni Association held a banquet in 
Dunn on the evening of University Day. This banquet was 
given by N. A. Townsend, former famous end on the Caro- 
lina football team, to the alumni of the county, and there 
were present twenty-one alumni, including doctors, lawyers, 
preachers, teachers, bankers, business men and politicians. 
Talks were made by Hon. H. L. Godwin, J. R. Baggett, E. F. 
£oung, R. L. Godwin, Dr. C. H. Sexton, G. K. Grantham 
and others. 

Tho association passed unanimously a resolution of re- 
dedication. The alumni present voted to rededicate their 
lives ami spirit to the extension and help of the University. 
President Baggett writes: "The Carolina spirit was never 

better expressed in any meeting I have ever attended than in 
this meeting and we wish to assure you there is a better day 
for the University in our county at this time." J. R. Bag- 
gett, *00, of Lillington, was re-elected president of the asso- 
ciation, and H. W. Prince, '17, of Dunn, was elected secretary. 


In the expression of the Durham Herald the ' ' pressing 
physical needs of the University commanded the attention of 
the Durham County Alumni Association almost to the ex- 
clusion of everything else, ' ' in the annual banquet held Octo- 
ber 19th at the Malbourne Hotel, Durham. Each of the forty 
alumni present realized that a crisis was confronting Alma 
Mater and that something must be done quickly. W. J. Brog- 
den, president of the association, presided as toastmaster. R. 
O. Everett, the first speaker, spoke earnestly of the need 
for a concerted effort to increase the facilities of the Univer- 
sity for earing for the hundreds of young men and women 
who are asking for admission. 

Prank P. Graham, of the University faculty, was present 
as a guest of the association, and his speech made a deep 
impression on the alumni as he brought graphically before them 
the serious condition existing at the University on account of 
the congestion. He called on the alumni to put on their fight- 
ing clothes and tell the facts about the University to the voters. 
He declared ' ' We are fighting no foe but ignorance, with no 
weapon Dut the facts, and for nothing less than the youth 
of North Carolina. ' ' 

John Spruut Hill, of the board of trustees and the build- 
ing committee, outlined what he stated to be the minimum 
amount of money needed during the next two years to bring 
the physical part of the University up to standard, $1,200,000. 
These figures are a minimum to relieve present congestion. To 
provide for any growth whatever a larger figure is neeessary. 
Dr. J. M. Manning made a motion that the alumni go on 
record as endorsing Mr. Hill's plan for improvement, and 
the motion was passed unanimously. Victor Bryant, J. L. 
Morehead, and others made vigorous and pointed speeches. 
A committee was appointed to aid in arousing interest over 
the State in the needs of the University. Officers were elected 
as follows: President, Dr. Poy Roberson, '05; secretary, 
George Tandy, '16; treasurer, Marion Fowler, '17. 

A telegram was received from Gen. Julian S. Carr, reading: 
' ' My heart is with you this evening. My love for North 
Carolina's biggest and brightest jewel was never quite so 
strong. For her welfare my prayers ascend, and her temples 
seem to be bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh. ' ' 


The Chowan County Alumni Association held a banquet 
in the home economics room of the high school building at 
Edenton on the evening of October 17th. Sixteen members 
were present. Dr. R. B. Drane, rector of the Episcopal 
church at Edenton, opened the meeting with prayer. M. L. 
Wright, president of the association, acted as toastmaster, 
and presented to the alumni the present urgent needs of the 
University. Everyone present was called on and responded 
with declarations of loyalty and affection for Alma Mater. 
The home economics department of the high school served 
the banquet, which was a very enjoyable affair in all respects. 
M. L. Wright, '08, was re-elected president of the association, 
and J. R. Nixon, '10, was re-elected secretary. 



One of the most enthusiastic and devoted assemblages of 
alumni held in the State on University Day was that of the 
Cumberland County Alumni Association. Thirty seven mem- 
bers of this association gathered around the banquet table in 
the Red Cross tea room at Fayetteville and renewed their 
devotion to Alma Mater. Robert S. McNeill acted as toast- 
master. He told the alumni assembled of the overcrowded 
condition and urgent needs of the University. The alumni 
entered with enthusiasm into an agreement to see that the 
people are acquainted with the facts. Ringing resolutions were 
adopted, calling upon the State to provide adequately for the 
University, and so enable the University to perform its vitally 
necessary work for the youth of the State. Among the alumni 
who spoke briefly were: J. Bayard Clark, Dr. J. Vance Mc- 
Gougan, R. W. Herring, Dr. J. H. Judd, W. S. Snipes, and 
Lt.-Gov. 0. Max Gardner. 


At the call of A. E. Woltz, president, the Gaston County 
Alumni Association met in the auditorium of the high school 
building in Gastonia on October 12th. The business before 
the meeting consisted in a discussion of ways and means by 
which the association could aid the University. Resolutions 
were adopted expressing the continued love and loyalty of the 
association to Alma Mater, and pledging the utmost co opera- 
tion of the association towards securing adequate support from 
the State. Joe S. Wray acted as chairman of the meeting 
and Thos. J. Brawley served as secretary. The association 
plans to hold a banquet during the Christmas holidays. 


The Guilford County Alumni Association held a most en- 
thusiastic meeting and banquet on October 11th in the high 
school building at Greensboro. In the language of the Greens- 
boro Neics: "The alumni had presented to them by Prank 
P. Graham, of the University faculty, a new vision of the 
possibilities of higher education in the State; grasping that 
vision, they bound themselves together in a covenant as cru- 
saders for the cause. Upon a foundation of facts, Mr. Graham 
built a plea for the youth of the State which no one could 
hear unmoved. ' Suffer the youth to come into the colleges, ' 
he pleaded, 'and forbid them not, for such is the kingdom of 
the future.' " 

A. M. Scales acted as toastmaster. He called attention to 
the fact that last year North Carolina paid into the federal 
treasury over $163,000,000 in taxes and to the further fact 
that ours is the fourth state in the Union in agricultural pro- 
duction. These facts, he declared, belie any intimation that 
the State is unable to support an adequate system for higher 
education. Clem G. Wright suggested concerted action on the 
part of University alumni to bring home to the people of the 
State their responsibilities in the matter. He expressed the 
conviction that "nothing short of the hand of Providence 
could stop the University alumni and their friends once they 
set their hands and wills to a task." 

Others speaking earnestly and developing the situation 
further were: E. D. Broadhurst, Dr. J. I. Foust, E. B.

and Benjamin Cone, '20, was elected- -secretary. - 

The Hillsboro Alumni Association gathered on the evening 
of October 12th at a banquet given by J. Cheshire Webb, who 
acted as toastmaster. Though a small group the Hillsboro 
alumni threw themselves with a bang into the movement to 
make known and relieve the congestion at Chapel Hill. The 
group decided to send a telegram to every alumni association 
and to follow the telegram with a letter to all the alumni. 
Talks were made by Frank P. Graham, of the University 
faculty, Major John W. Graham, of the executive committee 
of the trustees, Solicitor Samuel M. Gattis, Messrs. Cheshire 
Webb, Norflett Webb, Will Heartt, C. M. Andrews, and Paul 
Collins. A steering committee was appointed composed of 
S. M. Gattis, Norfleet Webb, Paul Collins, Cheshire Webb, and 
W. A. Heartt. 


The Scotland County Alumni Association held its annual 
banquet in the Chetwynd Hotel at Laurinburg on the evening 
of October 12th. Twenty-five ■ members of the association 
were present and the occasion proved a most pleasant and 
profitable event for all. Prof. A. H. Patterson, dean of the 
school of applied science in the University, was present and 
made an address, in which he pointed out the need for the 
great and immediate enlargement of the University's facilities. 
Each man present promised that he would put forth his best 
effort towards securing adequate support for the University in 
her crowded and congested condition. J. D. Phillips, '12, was 
re-elected president of the association and W. S. Dunbar, '14, 
was re-elected secretary. 


The Davidson County Alumni Association held a meeting 
and smoker on October 14th in the rooms of the Chamber oi 
Commerce in Lexington. J. F. Spruill, president of the asso- 
ciation, acted as toastmaster. Prof. M. C. S. Noble, of the 
University faculty, made the principal address of the evening. 
He was heard with much interest by the alumni, as he depicted 
graphically the crowded conditions at the University and 
called on the alumni to make known the facts everywhere. E. 
C. Byerly gave an interesting account of the conference in 
Chapel Hill on October 2d. The meeting was one of the 
most enthusiastic in the history of the association. The 
alumni voted unanimously to get solidly behind the movement 
for adequate support for the University. 


Seventy-five loyal Wake County alumni and alumnae cele- 
brated University Day with a banquet at the Yarborough Hotel 
in Raleigh on the evening of October 12th. Joseph B. Cheshire, 
Jr., president of the Wake County Alumni Association, pre- 
sided. Prof. W. S. Bernard, of the University faculty, made 
the principal address. He pointed out the present crowded 
conditions and the need of immediate and permanent relief. 
He declared that the University belongs to the people of the 
State and that its mission is too big and too broad to be left 
to the care of the few thousand who have entered its doors 
as students. He pointed out that the taxpayers of the State 
must come to its rescue. Dr. E. C. Brooks, State superin- 
tendent of public instruction, ably backed up Professor Ber- 
nard in his appeal. As the head of the State 'school system, 
he has a lively realization of the gravity of the problem to be 
solved. O. J. Coffin, editor of the Raleigh Times, and R. B. 
House urged the importance of getting busy. Brantley 
Womble, president of the Wake County Club at the Uni- 
versity, spoke of the present crowded conditions on the Hill. 
A resolution was adopted to call a meeting of all college 
alumni in Wake County this fall to take up the question of 



providing college facilities for the increased number of stu- 
dents everywhere. 

The former officers of the Wake County Alumni Association 
were re-elected as follows: President, Joseph B. Cheshire, 
Jr., '02; vice-president, A. J. Barwick, '01; secretary, H. M. 
London, '99.

Rutherford County Alumni Association at an enjoyable lunch- 
eon at Spindale Inn on October 12th. D. F. Morrow acted 
as toastmaster. F. F. Bradshaw, dean of students in the Uni- 
versity, spoke on ' ' Present Needs, or Crowded Conditions of 
the University. ' ' Several brief talks were made by alumni 
present. The association adopted resolutions urging adequate 
support of the University on the part of the State. A 
banquet or smoker will be held during the Christmas holidays, 
and the present students from Rutherford County will be in- 
vited to this affair. R. E. Price, '18, was elected president 
of the association and D. F. Morrow, Law '03, was elected 


The Rockingham County Alumni Association held a most 
enthusiastic meeting and banquet October 11th in the Colon- 
nade Hotel at Spray. A. D. Ivie was toastmaster and Judge 
P. T. Haizlip extended a weleome to visiting alumni. P. H. 
Gwynn, Jr., spoke of the Chapel Hill conference on October 
2d, Luther H. Hodges spoke of the pressing needs of the 
University as set forth in the pamphlet of information, and 
W. R. Dalton spoke of the need for a realization of the work 
the University is doing on the part of the people of the State. 
The association plans to stage a higher education rally in 
November, to which alumni of other State-supported institu- 
tions and public-spirited citizens generally of the county will 
be invited. The association in conjunction with the Rocking- 
ham students in the University will hold a banquet at Madison 
during the Christmas holidays. W. R. Dalton, '07, was elected 
president. P. H. Gwynn, Jr., '12, Rev. W. J. Gordon, '03,

University, as set forth in the pamphlet issued by the Uni- 
versity. The association pledged its hearty support to the 
youth of the State and to the University in all of its work 
A banquet will be held during the Christmas holidays. 

The New Hanover County Alumni Association held an en- 
thusiastic meeting on October 12th. Careful consideration 
was given to the facts and figures set forth in the pamphlet 
sent out by the University just before University Day. The 
alumni were very sensitive to the grave situation confronting 
the University, and were resolved to help the cause of higher 
education in North Carolina. A mass meeting will be held 
in Wilmington in December under the auspices of the associa- 
tion, at which time a comprehensive discussion of the Uni- 
versity's needs" will be made. The secretary of the association 
was authorized to confer with the secretaries of other local 
associations, with a view to formulating plans for development 
of facilities in all State institutions. C. C. Covington, '79, 
was re-elected president; C. W. Worth, '82, and Dr. J. G. 
Murphy, '01, were elected vice-presidents; Harry Solomon, 
'11, was elected secretary; and L. J. Poisson, Law '10, was 
elected treasurer. 

The Forsyth County Alumni Association held a meeting 
and smoker in the assembly rooms of the Chamber of Com 
merce in Winston-Salem on October 12th. W. M. Hendren 
presided as toastmaster and outlined the object of the meeting. 
He reports that there were forty members present and that 
' ' while this number was not large it was a very representative 
crowd and I think so far as the effort was to inform the 
alumni and through them the State, of the present critical 
situation, the purpose was accomplished. ' ' Burton Craige, 
'97, was elected president, and Rev. Douglas Rights, '13, was 
elected secretary. 


For the first time in athletic history the State 
College of Agriculture and Engineering has won in 
football from the University. Before nearly 8,000 
persons in Raleigh, October 21 of Fair Week, A. and 
E. won the second renewal of the biggest contest in 
North Carolina, 13 to 3. 

It was a splendidly played, hard fought and clean 
fought game, and the margin of victory lay in the 
brilliant running of Faucette, the Tech quarterback. 
On straight rushing it is probable that neither team 
could have scored, but the greater finish, drive and 
speed of Gurley, Johnson, and Faucette, and espe- 
cially Faucette, won the day. Twice he broke loose 
and each time, though thrown before he reached the 
goal limit, he put his team in position to score. 

In the third quarter he ran from scrimmage in the 
center of the field around his left end until he was'' 
thrown on the 2-yard line. A touchdown followed. 
In the fourth quarter he intercepted a long pass and 
raced 60 yards, shaking off four tacklers before he 
was himself tackled on the 15-yard line. The second 
touchdown followed that play, but not before one 
of the greatest stands that any Carolina team has 

The lone Tar Heel score came in the first quarter. 
A. and E. opened sluggishly, though Gurley and 
Johnson ripped off 20 yards in the first two rushes. 
Obtaining the ball near the center of the field Caro- 
lina opened her most impressive attack. Rushes by 
Lowe, Spaugh, and Pharr, and a pass from Lowe to 
Hutchins carried the ball to the 10-yard line. The 
Teehs held twice and Carolina was penalized 15 yards 
for holding. Standing on the 35-yard line Lowe 
kicked a drop kick. 

For the remainder of the half neither team could 
make appreciable progress. A. and E. once came 
close enough for Gurley to try a place kick, but 
most of the play was in A. and E. territory, with 
Carolina gaining a lot of ground but never showing 
the knockout punch, a repetition of her work in pre- 
vious games. The half ended with Carolina leading 
3 to and with the distinct credit of outplaying 
her opponent thus far. 



The situation changed in the second half, which 
opened with startling abruptness. Following the 
kickoff Carolina fumbled deep in her own territory. 
On the next play Gurley fumbled and McDonald, sub- 
stituting for Pharr, scooped up the ball and headed 
for the goal line with a clear field. He was over- 
hauled by Faucette after running 55 yards. Again 
Carolina stormed at the goal but failed and then A. 
and E. opened a slashing attack which carried the 
ball to the center of the field where Faucette made 
his first great run. On the goal line Carolina held 
once, but Johnson ripped through on the second play. 

In the fourth quarter Lowe threw a 40-yard pass 
to Griffith, but Faucette, coming in fast, intercepted 
it and raced up the sidelines, dodging and shaking 
off tacklers, to the 15-yard line. A quick pass from 
Faucette netted the first down and brought the ball 
to the 3-yard line. The first rush netted about 2y 2 
yards and the refereee had to be careful to see that 
it was not over. The second rush netted nothing. 
The third rush netted nothing. The fourth rush 
gave the touchdown. It was a great defense, but 
not quite great enough. 

The first half was Carolina's; the second half A. 
and E.'s. On straight rushing A. and E. gained more 
ground and looked more impressive, but at no time 
was able to gain more than two successive first downs. 
It was greater individual brilliance that won — and A. 
and E. had the brilliance and Carolina did not. 

From tackle to tackle there was little difference; 
A. and E. was perhaps better in opening holes. The 

A. and E. ends topped Carolina by a slighl margin, 
largely on the Carolina right side, for Hutchins at 
left end played a whale of a game and he ami Harrell 
held that wing tight, The other wing was easier to 
drive through. Fumbling was frequent, Carolina 
tackled well close in, but very badly in the open, 
particularly against Faucette on his second run. 
Four men hit him and bounced off — poor work, 
though stopping Faucette in full stride is no child's 

Lowe was easily the best punter on the field and 
might have used a kicking game more effectually. He 
was also Carolina's strongest runner. With Tenney 
out of the game and with Pharr knocked off in the 
first quarter, the Tar Heel attack lost some of its 
power. Spaugh was very impressive on the defense 
and Hutchins was always conspicuous. 

The game ways cleanly played, and the cheering 
was sportsmanlike. In the fourth quarter with the 
lide definitely against Carolina, the Tar Heel rooters 
gave their best exhibition of the day and fairly lifted 
the sky with their salvos. The line-up : 

Touchdowns: Gurley, Johnson. Goal from touchdown: 
Gurley. Drop kick: Lowe. Substitutions: Carolina, Mc 
Donald for Pharr, Owens for Poindexter, Abernathy for Mc- 
Donald, Liipfert for Hutchins, Crayton for Cochran, Kir- 
nodle for Hanby, Poindexter for Owens, "Williams for Griffith, 
Fulton for Spaugh; A. and E.: Pierson for Park, Wearn 
for Lawrence, McCoy for Faucette. Referee: Magoffin, of 
Michigan. Umpire: Williams, of Virginia. Headlinesman : 
Sampson, of St, Albans. Time of quarters: 15 minutes.

Immediately following the A. and E. game Head 
Coach Fuller started a series of changes in the var- 
sity line-up and in the first three days of practice had 
practically reconstructed the team. The changes 
were made in his expressed determination to put 
punch in the backfield and to give the team the power 
to drive across the goal line once it had come within 
scoring distance, a lack which was felt in all the 
early games. 

Hutchins, left end, was shifted to the backfield; 
Hanby, right tackle, went to full back ; Spaugh, full- 
back, went to one end, and Kernodle, substitute 
tackle, to the other end; Pritchard, right guard, 
moved out to right tackle, and Morris substitute 
guard, stepped into his guard position. The new 
varsity thus was lined up with Spaugh and Kernodle 
at ends ; Captain Harrell and Pritchard at tackles ; 
Poindexter and Morris at guards; Jacobi at center; 
and Lowe, Griffith or Harden, Hanby, and Hutchins 
in the backfield. 

These changes were recognized as experiments and 
many shifts were tried in the week preceding the 
Maryland game. In its first scrimmage against the 
scrub team, however, the newly-constructed eleven 
undoubtedly showed more driving power than the 
varsity has shown in any practice this season. Ring- 
ing cheers from nearly a thousand students who 
staged the biggest demonstrations of the year after 
the A. and E. defeat may have inspired a rebirth 
of spirit. The work of the men in their new positions 
has been naturally ragged; it remains to be seen 
whether they can adapt themselves to new worn and 
develop the necessary team-work. 

Hutchins, who has looked better as a driving back 
than any other man in the backfield. played fullback 
at Randolph-Macon where he was rated the best full- 
back in the Virginia prep schools. He lias already 
shown familiarity with his new position. Hanby will 
have more trouble. He is heavy, 190 pounds, and 
fairly fast, but has not played in the backfield before. 
Tenney, who was kept out of the A. and E. game be- 
cause of an attack of tonsilitis, will almost surely win 
back his position when he recovers ; but Pharr, with 
a broken bone in his ankle, is out for the season. 

Spaugh, who has been shifted to end, is the best 
defensive back on the field and has been for two 
years ; but he has not been so successful as a plunger. 
It is probable that he will be shifted back to the 
secondary line of defense. Kernodle, who is a natural 
player, has the strength, but needs to get the experi- 
ence to make a finished end. Pritchard played tackle 
last year and is familiar with that position. 

The new line-up gives more weight both to the 
backfield and to the whole team. Spaugh weighs 182 ; 
Harrell, 178; Poindexter, 189; Jacobi, 177; Morris, 

178; Pritchard, 181; Kernodle, 181; Lowe, 161 ; Griff- 
ith, 168; Hutchins, 184; Hanby, 190. Other men 
who will probably break into the regular line-up be- 
fore the Virginia game are not so heavy. 


The annual Thanksgiving football game between 
the Universities of North Carolina and Virginia will 
be played on Lambeth Field at Charlottesville, No- 
vember 25. It will mark the first time any Carolina 
team ever invaded the Virginia citadel. 

Every indication points to another flood of Tar 
Heels pouring in on the Virginians. The usual spe- 
cial train from Chapel Hill will carry the great bulk 
of the student body — and incidentally the faculty 
and residents of Chapel Hill. The Southern Rail- 
way reported in mid-October that applications for 
special Pullmans had come from half a dozen cities 
in North Carolina, and private advice from Char- 
lottesville reports that a great crowd of Virginians 
will attend the game. 

Early and mid-season games indicated another 
strong Virginia team. Rice Warren, an old Virginia 
coach, is in charge as the first professional coach 
Virginia has had in a decade. His best known 
players include Captain Michie, an exceptional end, 
and Rinehart, a slashing halfback, whose playing last 
Thanksgiving was the best individual work on the 
field by any back except possibly Lowe. Other veter- 
ans include Newman, who has been at tackle and 
at end ; Hankins, center ; Russell, halfback. The Vir- 
ginia freshman team of 1919, which was unusually 
strong, has furnished several promising players to 
the squad. 

Of her early games Virginia lost only to V. M. I., 
but the Cadets look at this writing to have the strong- 
est team in the south. Virginia won handily from 
Hopkins and Rutgers, using the aerial game to ad- 
vantage in the latter contest. 

Announcement has been made at the University 
that the query which will be discussed this year by 
the high schools having membership in the High 
School Debating Union of North Carolina is : Re- 
solved, That the policy of the closed shop should pre- 
vail in American industry. This contest is the ninth 
annual contest of the Debating Union, which is con- 
ducted under the auspices of the Bureau of Extension 
and the Dialectic and Philanthropic Literary Societies. 
Last year the Asheville high school won the trophy, 
the Aycock Memorial Cup. 

Last year's query of the High School Debating 
Union, Resolved, That the United States should adopt 
a policy of further material restriction of immigra- 
tion, is being used this year by the Virginia high 
schools, in a State-wide contest.

Dr. Herman Harrell Home, '95, Professor of the 
History of Education and the History of Philosophy 
in New York University, has recently added to his 
growing list of volumes in the field of education a 
study of Jesus — The Master Teacher. In this his 
latest book (212 p. illus. D., International Press, 
1920) Dr. Home applies the standards of modern 
pedagogy to the teaching methods of Jesus and leads 
the reader to a practical consideration of how far 
these methods can be employed today. Other vol- 
umes by Dr. Home intended for the use of study 
groups and growing out of his connection with The 
International Committee of the Y. M. C. A. are, The 
Leadership of Bible Study Groups, Modern Problems 
as Jesus Saw Them, and Jesus — Our Standard. 

Dr. Holland Thompson, '95, Professor of History 
in The College of the City of New York, is the author 
of The New South, a Chronicle of Social and Indus- 
trial Evolution, published by the Yale University 
Press as the 42d volume of the fifty-volume set of 
Chronicles of America. The first three chapters of 
the volume deal particularly with the history of the 
South since 1876. The remaining chapters "discuss 
from the angle of an observer the development of 
agriculture and industry, labor conditions, the race 
problem, educational progress, and current social 

Dr. Thompson is writing another volume in the 
series entitled The Age of Invention which is to 
be a study of the effect of machinery upon American 
life. He is also editing a History of the War in 
three volumes to complete the great Harmsworth His- 
tory of the World which was planned by Lord Bryce 
and is being published by the Grolier Society of New 

Louis Graves, '04, and Ames Brown, '10, both 
veteran journalists with a long list of publications to 
their credit, were contributors to the October maga- 
zines of extremely interesting articles on Prohibition 
and Tobacco. Graves, who through the columns of 
The New Republic put Orange County on the map 
last summer as the producer par excellence of block- 
ade whiskey, makes the State of Pennsylvania his 
most recent field of investigation, his findings being 
presented in the recent World's Work under the title 
Adventures in Prohibition. His conclusion, based on 
his study and despite the excessive wetness of Penn- 
sylvania is "Finally prohibition will be taken as a 
matter of course." 

Brown, who several years ago ran a series of 
studies on prohibition in the North American Review 
and other journals (analyzes in the October Atlantic 
Monthly the impending crusade against tobacco. 
While he does not say that battle is definitely joined, 
his article enumerates the forces which may be ex- 
pected to enter the conflict and indicates the lines 
alone which it will be waged. 

The proceedings of the 19th annual session of the 
State Literary and Historical Association contains 
the following addresses by alumni: A North Car- 
olinian at the Court of St. James During the World 
War, by A. W. McLean ; Contributions of North Car- 
olina Women to the World War, by Archibald Hen- 
derson; The Preservation of North Carolina War

R. W. Winston ; Edward Kidder Graham : Teacher 
and Interpreter of Modern Citizenship, by L. R. 
Wilson; Kemp Plummer Battle, by W. C. Smith. 
Dr. James Sprunt, a member of the Board of Trustees 
of the University and president of the Association, 
spoke on the Restoration of Jerusalem. 

Alumni interested in student publications of the 
University can find in the new offerings of The 
Magazine, The Tar Heel and The Tar Baby many evi- 
dences of life and spirit. The Magazine (now called 
The New Carolina Magazine) appeared in a form 
very similar to that of The Review, and was on 
sale at twenty cents per copy during registration ! 
Having discarded its former bellettristic nature, it 
is now a journal of opinion and information. At the 
same time the July Tar Baby was handed out to the 
Freshmen at two bits per, and since registration two 
additional numbers have come from the press, all as 
full of pep or powder as any of their predecessors. 

The Tar Heel, a special number of which has re- 
cently gone to all the alumni, has settled down to 
its job of furnishing campus news to its readers twice 
a week.

A Pioneer in the Stoker Field 

Westinghouse was one of the first among the pioneers in 
the stoker field. 

Although power stations have grown to enormous size, 
with sudden peak loads in some instances reaching as high as 
300 and 400 per cent normal rating, the remarkable fact re- 
mains that the design of the Westinghouse Koney Stoker remains today practically the same as it was thirty-three 
years ago and that it still retains its firm position in the combustion field. This speaks for the accuracy of the original 
design. The Roney Stoker is particularly suitable for steady power demands with moderate overloads of 25 to 50 per 
cent, and it burns a wide range of fuels satisfactorily. Simple design, low first cost and ease of installation, strongly 
recommend it for plants of moderate size. Over three million horsepower have been installed. 

Industrial expansion, however, has wrought many changes in power plant practice since 1887. Today mechanical 
stokers are called upon to burn everything from high-grade coals down to refuse. They are also called upon to meet 
the sudden and enormous steaming 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, 
which 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-

"How few of them 

are making any money 


TWO college men sat 
at luncheon recently 
in a New York hotel. 
' ne is a graduate of Cornell 
University, a man in the 
middle years; the other 
graduated from Amherst 
twelve years ago. 

Both are presidents of successful 
corporations; and both are active 
in the endowment campaigns of 
their respective alma maters. 

•g* •$• ^p 

"The thing that has amazed me in 
this campaign," said the younger 
man, "is to discover how few 
of the men who were in my 
class at college are really making 
any money. They have been out 
twelve years, and yet many of them 
are doing hardly any better than 
had they never been to college." 

"They never find out 
what business is all about" 

' I V H E older man nodded 
-*■ agreement. "The same 
thing has impressed me," he 
said. "The trouble is that many 
men assume that a college educa- 
tion is, by itself, a complete 
preparation for business. They 
T ould never expect to succeed 
t medicine or law without special 

"But they enter business from 
the university, get into a depart- 
mental position and stay there all 
their lives. They never master 
the relationship of the different 
departments to each other. They 
are cogs in the machine, without 
understanding quite what it is all

THE Alexander Hamilton 
Institute was founded by a 
group of business men and edu- 

More than fifty 

THAT the Institute is 
of special value to 
college men, is proved by 
the fact that 35 per cent 
of the men who enrol in 
its Modern Business 
Course and Service are 
graduates of American 
colleges and universities. 

The authoritative char- 
acter of its training is 
proved by the adoption 
of its volumes as text- 
books by more than fifty 
of the leading universi- 
ties and colleges of the 

cators who realized that modern 
business was developing special- 
ists, but not executives; that 
somehow more men must be 
taught the fundamentals that 
underlie the operations of every 
department of business. 

The Institute has only one 
Course. It takes a man out of 
college or a man who knows one 
department of business — adver- 
tising, or accounting, or costs, 
or factory production, or what- 
ever his experience may have 
taught him — and gives him a 
working knowledge of all the 
other departments of business. 

Such a man receives in a few 
months of reading what ordina- 
rily would consume years of prac- 
tical experience. He finds in 
the Institute a more direct path 
from where he is to where he 
wants to be. He has the 
satisfaction of carrying large 
responsibilities while he is still 

Naturally and inevitably he earns 
more than the average man of 
the same years and education. 

The members of the Advisory 
Council represent national lead-

ership both in education and in 
business. They are: 

Frank A. Vanderlip, the financier; Gen- 
eral Coleman duPont, the well-known 
business executive; John Hays Ham- 
mond, the eminent engineer; Jeremiah 
W. Jenks, the statistician and economist 
and Joseph French Johnson, Dean of

note that in every single instance 
they have among their officers 
and younger executives a large 
percentage of Alexander Hamil-

In the United State3 Steel Corporation 
545 men are enrolled; in the Goodyear 
Tire and Rubber Company, 346; in the 
Standard Oil Co., 801; in the Ford 
Motor Company, 343; in the General 
Electric Company, 402 and so on thru- 
out the biggest concerns in America. 

Surely when the leading uni- 
versities and the leading busi- 
ness enterprises of the country 
unite in such unanimous indorse- 
ment, the training which they 
indorse must be worthy of your 
investigation at least. 

"Forging Ahead in 

THE Alexander Hamilton Institute's Course is 
not for every man. It is no magic to save from 
failure the man who does not deserve to succeed. 
Most of the men enrolled in its Course would be suc- 
cessful, in the long run, even without its training. 

The Institute is a broadener of vision; a more direct 
path to executive responsibility; a firm foundation 
for the man who is entering business on his own 
account. Any man who is not willing to be con- 
tent with the small rewards of business will find it 
well worth while to send for "Forging Ahead in

story of what the Institute is and does. Send for

It's the Man That Counts 

The human element probably plays a more important part in the 
making of explosives than in any other manufacturing process con- 
ducted on a large scale. There are no machines in the twelve great 
Hercules plants that need only to be started at t l ie beginning of a day, 
stopped at the end, and which in the meantime carry out their tasks 
without attention. 

Every machine used in the making of Hercules Explosives has a man 
for its master. Every motion it makes is watched. The results of 
its work are carefully checked. Nothing is ever taken for granted. 
No machine is looked upon as infallible. 

In the gelatin packing house, for example, is a large machine which 
fills paper cartridge; with *Hercules Gelatin Dynamite. Although 
this machine works with almost positive precision and accuracy, 
every cartridge which comes from it is inspected twice to make cer- 
tain that it is properly packed. One inspection takes place immedi- 
ately after the cartridge leaves the machine. Another before it is 
finally boxed for shipment. 

The men who use Hercules Explosives know how dependable are 
the men who make Hercules Explosives. The Explosives themselves 
tell the story. Their power never fails those who seek its aid. In 
metal mine and stone quarry, at the bottoms of deep rivers and in 
the hearts of great mountains, where the engineer builds a city 
skyscraper and where the farmer blasts a ditch, Hercules Explosives 
live up to the name they bear.

Life on the Ocean 

with Electricity at the Helm 

IN the old days, life before the mast was rated 
in terms of man power but the new sea is 
measured in horsepower, with electricity as the 
controlling force. 

A modern electric ship, like the "New Mexico" or 
the "California", is a great city afloat. With oil 
for fuel, a central power plant generates suffi- 
cient energy to propel the massive vessel and to 
furnish light and power for every need. 

And on the shore the application of electricity to 
the loading, unloading and repair work saves 
time and labor. 

To make possible marine electrification the 
future needs aboard ship had to be visualized 
and then the machinery engineered to meet those 
needs. In this capacity the organization, ex- 
perience and facilities of the General Electric 
Company have been serving the American Navy 
and Merchant Marine.
