Alumni Review 

The University of North Carolina 






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 
at our office opposite the campus. We have a plan for you — if you come in time.

A Message from President Chase 
to the Alumni 

To you, the ten thousand living alumni of the University of North Carolina, Alma Mater 
ealls in this her hour of need. If you really believe that what the University did for you was 
worth while; if you have faith that what the University has done and is doing for North Caro- 
lina is worth while: if your hearts thrill with the everlasting righteousness of the cause she 
lives for — then rally ten thousand strong about her standard. 

For her cause is in no wise partisan or selfish. It is the cause of North Carolina; the cause 
of democracy itself. -It is not the future of the University alone, but the future of North 
Carolina which trembles in the balance. The University cannot without relief educate even her 
present number of students. She cannot hold her present strong faculty. She must inevitably 
sink to a position of inferior and sharply limited service. But limited registration and inferior 
work mean the slamming of the doors of opportunity in the faces of North Carolina's sons. They 
mean the tragedy of .youthful promise unfulfilled, potential leadership crippled, the future of 
a state, now bright with promise, shadowed and darkened. 

The time for decision is NOW. Two years from now, it will be too late to save the situa- 
tion. The University will have lost more ground than can be regained in a decade — and her 
loss will be North Carolina's. 

Never was the state faced by a greater crisis. The issue is simply and clearly whether she 
shall save dollars or grow men. Shall she hide in a napkin the greatest gift that God has 
given her — the gift of fine, clean young manhood, youth of the sturdy old American strain .' 

Barred gates instead of an open road to learning; youth cramped, denied, confined: future 
leaders untrained, penalized for their North Carolina birth — will the great heart of the state 
suffer these things to be? 

And you, who know what a fuller life and a richer service is yours because of your years 
on this campus, you before whom the doors of opportunity swung open, you least of all men can 
consent that others lose what you have gained. The cause is yours, your sons', your state's. 
It is the cause of life against stagnation, of education against ignorance. Your University, 
strong, willing, eager, asks but one thing: that she be set free to do her work for the upbuild- 
ing of her state. Are you. her sons, content with less? 

Confidently she calls to you. sure of your response. Now is the day of your opportunity. 
Are you ready for the task ? 

H. W. CHASE, President.

The Case Stated 

The University of North Carolina, through its 
regular constituted authorities, has asked the State 
Budget Commission and the General Assembly for 
the five-year building program presented in detail on 
the preceding page. In making this request it has 
proceeded on the basis (11 That it is the state's duty 
to provide educational facilities for its citizenship ; 

(2) That inasmuch as 2308 North Carolina boys and 
girls were turned away from the colleges of their first 
choice iu 1920-21 the state is not performing its duty; 

(3) That in view of the fact that more seniors are 
enrolled in North Carolina high schools this year than 
last, the demand for accommodation at the University 
will be greater next September than last; (4) and 
that on account of its present frightful congestion, 
nothing short of a radical comprehensive building 
program will enable the University to house and feed 
and provide class rooms for the present student body 
of 1,400, and the student body of 3.000 which will be 
knocking at its doors for admission by 1925-26. 

Dormitories for 1275 Men 

The first step the University is compelled to take 
in meeting this situation is that of providing dor- 
mitories. There is absolutely no escape from this 
fundamental proposition. Today the normal capacity 
of its rooms (2 occupants to a room) is 469. The 
capacity of one new dormitory now under construc- 
tion is 72, the present normal capacity of the town is 
611, and the probable additional capacity which may 
be provided from the town and private capital in 
five years is 575, leaving a net provision of quarters 
for 1273 men to be found. Four men are crowded 
in many of the rooms today, double deck, triple 
deck, and even quadruple deck beds are forced into 
use ; and rooms out in the village on the second floors 
of grocery stores and garages over which the Uni- 
versity has no direct disciplinary or sanitary control 
and into which North Carolina fathers and mothers 
send their sons reluctantly are crowded to the doors. 

A Woman's Building 

Since 1898 the University has admitted women to 
its Junior and Senior classes and to its professional 
schools. At present 47 are in attendance. But at no 
lime has it provided proper living conditions for 
these students nor is it possible for more of them 
to gain admittance under the present circumstances. 
If the University is going to meet the demand which 
the women of the state are making upon it, it can 
no longer temporize with the matter of housing them 
in quarters that arc inadequate and over which it 
can exercis.e no control. 

In this connection it must be remembered that in 
addition to the women who pursue courses during the 
regular term, hundreds attend the summer school 
session and are entitled, while they are here prepar- 
ing to go back better equipped for their service in 
North Carolina school rooms, to at least one building 
which they can call their own with administrative of- 
fices, reception halls, and other facilities to be found 
in similar buildings throughout the country. 

Dormitory Furnishings 

It goes without saying that these dormitories must 
be furnished. But it must be said, and said em- 
phatically, that they must be furnished in such a 
way that the boy or girl who comes to the University 
from a home in which proper hygienic ami sanitary 
conditions prevail, must not be forced to live on the 
campus under conditions that are not standard. Sim- 
ilarly, every North Carolina boy who comes to the 
University from a home in which proper standards 
have not prevailed, should have the opportunity of 
finding out what proper standards are. It should 
not longer be said in truth as it was said only recently 
by a prominent member of the Board of Trustees 
of the University of South Carolina and a distin- 
guished physician of the state, that the student body 
of the University of South Carolina would not live 
in such disreputable quarters as found here and that 
the living conditions at Chapel Hill were a disgrace 
to the state. North Carolina boys are entitled to 
well equipped rooms and sanitary plumbing. 

Dining Halls Required for 1725 

The dining hall situation is worse than that of 
the housing. Swain hall has a normal capacity of 
450 and the University Inn of 75. The latter is an 
old wooden building purchased fifteen years ago with 
a view to tearing down and replacing with a new 
building. While citizens of the town rent rooms, 
only a few boarding houses are operated. The re- 
sult is that all eating places are jammed to the limit 
and students have to eat in shifts and under alto- 
gether unhygienic conditions. In the summer of 
1920. over 200 North Carolina teachers were denied 
admittance to the University dormitories and dining 
halls, because they could not stand the frightful over- 
crowding in the heat of June-August, and as many 
were turned away for similar reasons by housekeepers 
in the village. And that too in North Carolina which, 
at that time, was employing 5,000 teachers who held 
certificates below the minimum requirement of the 
State Department of Education. 

Classrooms, Laboratories, 

Apparatus, Libraries, and Equipment 

The object of going to college is to study. To do 
this effectively classrooms, laboratories, books, and 
equipment are fundamentally essential. Today, out 
side scientific laboratories and professional buildings, 
the University has only 19 classrooms. These 1" 
rooms are divided among the following 17 depart 
incuts with a combined registration of 2.766 students: 
English, History, French, Economics, Rural Eco- 
nomics, Sociology, Music, Philosophy, Spanish, Latin, 
German, Business Organization, Accounting, Greek, 
Education, Psychology. Public Welfare. 

To relieve this situation and to take care of I lie 
increasing numbers, it is imperative to provide three 
]\i'\v classroom buildings for the languages, for the 
School of Commerce, for History, and the Social 
Sciences. Today North Carolina is studying as she 
has never studied before, the industrial and social 
fabric of her life. Men and women are seeking train 



ing for effective administration of her economic and 
industrial future, and at the same time other men and 
women are preparing' themselves for the infinite 
duties of public social service. A building for those 
engaged in these studies — some 300 or more — is an 
immediate necessity, the prolonged lack of which will 
prove of great loss to the state. 

The buildings now in use for the Schools of Law 
and Pharmacy and the department of Geology are 
totally inadequate. The School of Pharmacy occupies 
a building which in turn has proven too small for the 
department of Chemistry and the School of Med- 
icine The department of Geology, which has sent 
more men into the soil survey work than any other 
institution in America, is instructing 250 students 
today in quarters inadequate for 100. And the Visit- 
ing Committee of the Board of Trustees in its report 
last June employed the following language: "It is 
a disgrace to the state of North Carolina that the 
Law School is compelled to try to teach under such 

Chemistry Hall, built in 1905 at a cost of $50,000, 
the Library (a $55,000 gift from Mr. Carnegie in 
1907), and the Medical Laboratory, included every 
inch of space that could be secured for the money 
and at the sacrifice of many important features. To- 
day they cannot carry the load placed upon them and 
nothing* short of doubling their capacity will enable 
them to meet the future demands upon them. 

Physical Education 
Building and Infirmary 

A sound body is essential to a sound mind. The 
University has recognized this principle. Through 
the gift of the late Judge W. P. Bynum it erected the 
present Physical Education building in 1904 to ac- 
commodate a student body then numbering 400. The 
present Infirmary was erected at a cost of $20,000 in 
1900 and contains only 20 beds. In view of the facts 
revealed by the war as to physical defects of young 
men, new emphasis has been placed upon the neces- 
sity of supplying adequate physical training for every 
student. And certainly North Carolina parents 
should not be denied, in the event of the illness of 
their sons, the assurance that they are provided am- 
ple hospital facilities and medical attention. 

Auditorium to Seat 3,000 Persons 

President M. L. Burton, recently of the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota, but now of the University of Mich- 
igan, gave as one of his reasons for going to Michigan 
that it had the Hill auditorium, whereas Minnesota 
had none. He wanted to have, each day, or at least 
once or twice a week, the opportunity of getting di- 
rectly in touch with the student body 

Today North Carolina firmly believes in chapel 
exercises for her school children. Certainly these brief 
in irning periods have been here at the University the 
seeding times for the skillful sowing of the pres- 
idents and faculties and guests of the University. In 
this way, more than in any other, high ideals and as- 
pirations in the student body have been cultivated. 

And yet, today, North Carolina is denying her sons 
and daughters at the University this opportunity. 
Gerrard Hall, built in 1822, and having a main floor 
capacity of approximately -150. holds the freshman 
class alone, whereas if the President of the University 
wishes to reach the entire student body with a di- 
rect message, it is necessary for him to call it together 
in at least three shifts — a procedure that inevitably 
must tend to disintegration of student morale. 

Administrative and Extension Building 

In business terms, the University is a big plant. 
Its buildings and libraries and apparatus and grounds, 
represented an expenditure, at pre-war prices, of 
$2,000,000. Its present net working income (exclu- 
sive of its public service functions and dining halls) 
is the equivalent of six per cent on a capital invest- 
ment of approximately $5,500,000. It comprises The 
School of Liberal Arts, The School of Applied Science, 
The Graduate School, The School of Law, The School 
of Medicine, The School of Pharmacy, The School of 
Education, The School of Commerce, The School of 
Public Welfare, The Summer School, and The Bu- 
reau of Extension. In addition, the University has 
to serve in several capacities as a public service cor- 
poration and maintains its dining halls, heating 
plants, laundry etc. 

An administration building which will bring to- 
gether the administrative offices, together with a 
proper inter-office telephone system, is absolutely in- 
dispensable and must be provided if the University is 
to do its work efficiently. 

Dwellings for Administrative 
Officers and Faculty 

In 1920, in order to secure and retain its personnel, 
the University was forced to erect 10 dwellings. To- 
day the explanation is made to every prospective 
addition to the faculty that the problem of how and 
where he can find living quarters is one the Uni- 
versity cannot solve. It passes this problem direct 
to the General Assembly with the statement that it 
cannot add faculty members to teach the increasing 
student body unless it can offer them places in which 
to eat and sleep. 

Renovation of Old Buildings 

Three of the buildings now in use on the campus 
were erected between 1793 and 1800, five from 1800 
to 1860, four from 1860 to 1900, and twelve from 
1900 to 1920. With the exception of the buildings 
erected in the last two years all had to be built on 
a comparatively small unit system, and all are in 
need of the enlargement set forth above or of com- 
plete renovation to meet the requirements of the pre- 
sent University. 

Heat, Light, Power, 
and Water Extensions 

That heat, light, power, and water extension to- 
gether with adequate fire protection, should be pro- 
vided is too obvious for statement. The plant can- 
not be maintained and protected without them. 

Permanent Improvement of Grounds 

The building program herein set forth calls for a 
radical changing of the physical aspect of the campus. 
Excavations, sewers, grading, planting, and walk- 
ways have to be considered in a program of this pro- 
portion, particularly as it involves the plant of an 
organization which depends not merely upon walls 
and roofs and floor space and machinery in turning 
out a particular product, but upon all these so grouped 
and planned as to stir the minds and hearts of 
men and women to high and ever higher aspirations. 
The youth of North Carolina who walk this campus 
should find here standards which they can transfer 
to the enrichment of North Carolina in every depart- 
ment of her life. 



Maintenance Program for 1921-22 Calls for $473,911; 

for 1922-23 $494,336 

Maintenance Program Submitted 

The University has also submitted a maintenance 
program for the biennium calling for $473,911 for 
1921-22 and $494,336 for 1922-23. In doing this it 
has held in mind four fundamental considerations : 
(1) The necessity of holding together and building 
up a thoroughly equipped faculty; (2) The neces- 
sity of maintaining an institution of distinctly Uni- 
versity character; (3) The necessity of serving the 
state in the capacity of a semi-public service corpora- 
tion; and (4) The necessity of maintaining and con- 
stantly improving the physical environment in which 
the student body works. 

The Faculty the Heart of the University 

What the University is rests in its final analysis 
on the quality of its faculty. If the present faculty 
can be held together and the right sort of new ma- 
terial added to it, a splendid future for the Univer- 
sity is assured. Success or failure rests here, and 
here alone. 

Competition for Instructors Unparalleled 

While it may have escaped the attention of the 
general public, competition for instructors has never 
been so keen in the college world as today. The war 
and attendant business organization swept thousands 
of teachers out of the class room into the business of- 
fice and there most of them have remained. Since 
the armistice, there has been throughout the entire 
country a rush of students to college doors similar 
to that in North Carolina. As a result of this sit- 
uation and the further fact that college salaries had 
at no time kept pace with salaries in other profes- 
sions, the colleges aud universities of America sud- 
denly realized that to hold their instructors, millions 
and millions of dollars would have to be raised 
through endowment drives and legislative appropria- 
tions. So alarming was the situation, that to relieve 
it temporarily until the drives coidd be put on and 
remedial legislation passed, Mr. Rockefeller, on 
Christmas Day, 1919, presented the General Educa- 
tion Board with $50,000,000 to apply in specific 
desperate cases. 

The University has felt the Pressure 

In common with other institutions the University 
has felt this pressure. Within the past 18 months 
20 of its 73 faculty members holding the rank of pro- 
fessor have been held in the face of calls from other 
institutions by their faith in North Carolina. And 
now that salary scales resulting from drives or legis- 
lative appropriations have been announced by other 
institutions varying from $900 to $2,500 higher than 
those of the University ($3,600 maximum after 1") 
years of service as full professor) it is unthinkable to 
suppose that the present staff can longer be held in- 
tact or that new men of the proper training and 
character can be secured to till new places unless this 
competition is promptly met. 

Instances Cited 

If specific instances are required, any number may 
be cited. Two of the professors of the University 
turned down offers last year involving increases above 
what they were receiving of $600 or more annually. 
Had they accepted, their salaries, beginning Septem- 
ber 1920, would have been increased $1,400 and $2,000 
respectively as the salary scales of both institutions 
were raised between 30 and 50 per cent at the close 
of the year in which the calls were extended. 

Similarly, the University last year went into the 
market for professors in the School of Commerce 
and the department of Highway Engineering. The 
two men who seemed, after long and painstaking in- 
vestigation, to be best qualified to fill the positions 
and most capable of making a positive contribution 
to the commercial and industrial life of the state, 
were snapped up by the Universities of Iowa and 
Michigan at salaries of $6,000 and $6,500. North 
Carolina needed their services, needed them tremend- 
ously, but for the lack of money she lost them to 
states which knew what they wanted and were will- 
ing to pay the price required to secure them. 

Cannot Meet Local Competition 

Not only is the University unable to meet outside 
competition. She cannot even meet local competition. 
Today the city high schools of Asheville or Charlotte 
or Greensboro or Wilmington and many rural high 
schools can take the pick of the graduating class if 
it comes to a choice between remaining as an instruc- 
tor here or going directly into public school work. 
And it is a known fact that the salaries of numbers 
of city and county superintendents range from $600 
to $1,200 above those of full professors at the Uni- 
versity, the amount depending upon the length of 
the service of the latter. 

Special Funds Have 

Saved Situation Temporarily 

A further fact has also been overlooked. Had not 
the University been able to apply the Kenan Fund 
(the gift of the late Mrs. Bingham) to the salaries of 
ten of its highest paid professors, it not only would 
have lost some of its strongest men, but the hope and 
faith in the University's future would have been pro- 
foundly shaken in the minds of its faculty generally, 
and losses of faculty members would have been more 
serious than has been the case. 

Similarly, even with this aid, so critical is the sit- 
uation today, that the General Education Board, re- 
cognizing the splendid work of the faculty and the 
very grave danger of its disintegration during the 
employing period January-April, has, for once, 
broken its policy of non-assistance to state-supported 
institutions, and on November 22nd announced that 
it would supplement salaries from July 1, 1920 to 
July 1, 1921, to enable the administration to hold 
th" faculty together until the state can come to its 
help. Here, certainly, is a college situation that is 
as desperate as any business situation that engages 



the attention of any North Carolina business man 
today and demands remedial action on the part of 

the state. 

It Costs to Do 

Work of University Grade 

The second big consideration is that it costs to do 
work of University grade. For its undergraduate 
body the state has laid upon the University the duty 
of providing the best sort of instruction. It has also 
laid upon it the duty of equipping men for the more 
difficult tasks of leadership in the industrial, com- 
mercial, and professional life of North Carolina 
which, with the passing of every day, becomes more 
and more complex. 

In response to this command the University is to- 
day giving instruction to 125 members of the Grad- 
uate School who are not only graduates of high schools, 
but have completed four-year college courses as well. 
Similarly, its Medical School, and Law School, and its 
Schools of Education, and Commerce, and Public 
Welfare, and Applied Science, deal largely with stu- 
dents who have already had two or more years of 
college training as prerequisites and therefore re- 
quire more highly specialized instruction and library 
facilities and laboratory equipment than institutions 
which do not maintain similar or equally extensive 

It Costs to Train Road Engineers 

To state the matter concretely, North Carolina is 
at this hour pondering two tremendously important, 
far-reaching programs: (1) The program of the 
North Carolina Good Roads Association calling for 
an expenditure of millions and millions in the con- 
struction of 5,500 miles of good roads; and (2) The 
program of the North Carolina Education Commis- 
sion which proposes the underwriting of an educa- 
tional reorganization that will break the bonds of il- 
literacy which are holding the state in slavery today. 
To go out into the market and secure the man or 
men who know asphalt and concrete and cement and 
sand and clay and culverts and bridges and costs and 
sinking funds and maintenance programs and road 
taxes — who know them from A to Z, and can teach 
them to town and city and county and state high- 
way engineers, and at the same time put at their dis- 
posal laboratory apparatus and testing machinery and 
the experience of other states in the form of sur- 
veys and reports and engineering handbooks and data 
that only can be made available through a highly 
specialized departmental library — to do this costs, 
and should cost, real money. 

It Will Cost to Rewrite 
the Educational Code 

Again, North Carolina requires 2,000 trained teach- 
ing recruits annually. In view of this solemn duty, 
the University's School of Education, Summer School, 
and the Graduate School, must supply to the limit of 
their ability through skilled instruction and educa- 
tional books and magazines and monographs and 
special surveys and studies, the men and women who 
are to direct and superintend the rural and town and 
city and county systems of schools. 

The University as a Semi- 
Public Service Corporation 

The third ground for asking increased maintenance 
is that the University may increase its direct service 
to North Carolina. To send 20,000 copies of The 
yews Letter into North Carolina homes every week ; 
to involve the boys and girls of from 250 to 350 high 
schools in an annual debating contest ; to supply 
courses of instruction to 1,000 or 1,200 members of 
North Carolina women's clubs; to supply from 150 
to 200 lecturers for teachers' meetings or study groups 
or special interests annually; to maintain a service 
that concerns itself with the installation of water sup- 
plies and electric lighting plants in rural homes ; to 
assist in the designing and improvement of North 
Carolina school grounds ; to conduct institutes for 
the Bureau of Community Service, for the workers 
with adult illiterates, for the superintendents of pub- 
lic welfare, for highway engineers, for the North 
Carolina Press Association, and other organizations, 
— to render these services to the state is a duty which 
the University gladly assumes, but in assuming it, 
points out to the state that this service must be placed 
upon a definite financial basis if it is to expand and 
function on the scale demanded by the people. 

A Proper Environment Must Be Maintained 

It has already been said that the living conditions 
upon the campus should measure up to required stan- 
dards. It should be further stated that every new 
building erected becomes a liability in the sense that 
it has to be maintained. This fact has never been 
recognized by the state in its maintenance appro- 
priations. While light, and heat, and water, and 
janitor service have been figured into maintenance 
appropriations and at ten or fifteen year intervals 
special funds are set aside for renovation or decided 
alterations, adequate provision has never been made 
for the daily and weekly repairs upon which the 
proper upkeep of buildings depend. For every new 
building authorized, a definite percent should also 
be appropriated to insure its proper maintenance. 

It is again urged that sufficient money should be 
appropriated for the double program of buildings and 
maintenance to insure the state that the University 
plant will contribute through its aesthetic qualities 
to the best development of its student body. Comfort, 
cleanliness, beauty of buildings and grounds consti 
tute the fundamenals of a proper environment for col- 
lege men today. 

What These Programs Involve 

It was in 1789, at the very moment in which she 
entered the Union, that North Carolina resolved to 
found the University. Through the thirteen decades 
of its existence the University has asked nothing of 
the state except that it might return it, with interest, 
in service to the people. And in spite of the lack of 
buildings and meager support by the state, it has 
ever held aloft a beacon light for the guidance of 
North Carolina's feet. Today it reverently cherishes 
the praise of Zebulon Baird Vance expressed in the 
words "more has been done here towards the true 
glory and prosperity of North Carolina than any- 
where else." And it is with this thought alone, this 



thought of more completely vitalizing the life of North 
Carolina that it has submitted these building and 
maintenance programs. 

In making up her mind whether or not she will 
underwrite and carry out this double program along 
with those submitted by other educational institu- 
tions, North Carolina must recognize that a moment 
of destiny like that of 1789, when she took the step 
that made her a member of the Union and drafted the 
charter of the first American state \miversity, is at 
hand. The world war has set the stage for a new scene. 

Today she must make her decision. Conceiving her- 
self poor, she may decide to sow to poverty with its 
inevitable harvest of illiteracy and backwardness 
among the sisterhood of the states. It is our faith 
that true to the vision of the fathers and out of the 
abundance of her newly-won wealth she will place 
here under these oaks a physical and spiritual Uni- 
versity, an equipment of apparatus and books, a 
body of instructors capable of rendering her the vital- 
izing service for which her life calls out of the crit- 
ical needs of a democratic state. 


As the University of North Carolina swung forward 
into the 126th year of its existence, gathering re- 
newed strength and 'courage from the rich and abun- 
dant life of the state, evidence multiplied that the in- 
stitution, beside growing and deepening normally in 
every respect, had made notable strides in its march 
toward becoming more and more a university in the 
fullest sense of the word and had strengthened and 
reached out new lines of service to the people of the 
state. The second year of President Chase's leader- 
ship, with the soundest of the old policies upheld and 
re-enforced and with new grips extended, was marked 
by growth, by extension of service, by quick apprecia- 
tion of state needs, and by ability to think and act 
and lead. Eliminating for the moment the difficul- 
ties arising from the necessary rejection, because of 
lack of room, of several hundred students who wanted 
to enter the University and the hardship of work 
under over-crowded and undermanned conditions and 
with meager equipment or none at all, it has been in 
most respects an encouraging year. 

Although greatest emphasis has been placed, as 
in every year since the University opened its doors 
to all the people, upon the enrichening and deepening 
of the life of its students, upon the imparting of 
knowledge and the formation of habits of thought and 
of character, and upon the healthy spiritual growth 
of its young men and women, and although this funda- 
mental purpose has been upon the whole markedly 
successful, there are still interesting and important 
facts in the history of the past year that stand out 
like mountain peaks. 

Breaking the Record 

First of all, sheer size. The figures carry their own 
story. This fall the registration has been 1,403, 
larger by 53 than at this time last year, larger than 
ever before in the history of the University, larger 
than any institution in the state has ever shown. And 
beyond all doubt the figures would have been higher 
if there had been room on the campus and in Chapel 
Hill for students to find sleeping space and eating 
space and study space. The increase over last year 
has not been large for the simple and overwhelming 
reason that neither last year nor this year has there 
been room for more students. The University and 
the town are crowded to the ultimate limit ; numbers 
have had to wait for room, and room has had to wait 
for the Legislature. 

The Summer School of 1920 had a total enrollment 
of 1,147. The Summer Law School had 44 students. 
Adding the three groups, it will be seen that a grand 
total of 2,594 students of all kinds has enrolled in 

the University since last commencement. The same 
figure last year was 2,271, which was the highest up 
to that time. But the 1920 figure of 2,594 breaks 
all records and shows beyond all doubt the increasing 
sweep of the University's appeal. Further still, the 
Summer School alone, because of lack of space, had 
to refuse admission to 400 additional students who 
wanted to study at the University and had the doors 
shut in their faces because there was no room for 

North Carolinians Lead 

Of the students this winter 92.9 per cent are North 
Carolinians. Exactly 100 come from outside the 
state, the largest extra-state enrollment the Univer- 
sity has ever had, due largely to the new School of 
Public Welfare. The enrollment represents a cross 
section of North Carolina life. Every county is re- 
presented except five, Caswell, Clay, Graham, Mit- 
chell and Yancey. Mecklenburg alone sent 77 students 
to the University, Guilford sent 69, Buncombe 58, 
Orange 48, Wake 46, and Wayne 45. Forty-two coun- 
ties sent more than 10 students each. 

These young men and women represent every kind 
of home to be found in the state. Four hundred sev- 
enty-eight come from Methodist homes, 356 from 
Baptist, 235 from Presbyterian, 159 from Episco- 
palian, 39 from Christian, 33 from Jewish, 16 from 
Roman Catholic, 10 from Moravian homes, and the 
remainder are scattered through a wide number of 
religious faiths. 

Classified on other grounds, 375 come from the 
homes of farmers. North Carolina is still a pre- 
dominatingly rural state and the chief interest of the 
state is represented in the number of its sons and 
daughters it dedicates to university education. Forty- 
eight ministers of the Gospel have sent sons to Chapel 
Hill, and merchants, manufacturers, lawyers, doctors, 
and butchers, bakers, painters, fishermen, barbers, and 
plumbers and many others have all poured their 
human wealth into the University. The life of the 
state is reflected in the life of the University. 

More Women Coming 

The number of women taking regular university 
work this winter is 47 as against 41 at this time last 
year. Neither number represents any effort by the 
University to obtain women students. Its polic.y here 
is substanially unchanged: — if women want work at 
the University which they cannot get elsewhere in 
the state, they have the right to come to it as a public 
institution and get the work. Housing conditions are 
necessarily uninviting, but as virtually all the women 



are in deadly earnest about their work and what 
they want, they come anyway. Thirteen are graduate 
students, 1 is in pharmacy, 2 are special graduates, 6 
arc seniors, 5 are jimiors, 10 are special students, 10 
are in the lower classes. Two are pursuing courses 
that they cannot obtain at any woman's college in the 
United States, one in electrical engineering, one in 
chemistry. The problem of women students is surely 
pushing its way to the front and will call for a more 
definite policy in the near future. 

Public Welfare Organized 

Aside from this matter of size, gratifying only be- 
cause it indicates the spread of education in North 
Carolina, the growth of the University idea may be 
seen, for instance, in the development of the new 
•School of Public Welfare, in the reorganization of 
the Graduate School, in the continued success of the 
young School of Commerce, and in many other de- 
velopments which could come only from such a broad 
institution as a university. The School of Public Wel- 
fare, the only one of its kind in the South and one of 
the few in the whole country, is a direct example of 
a university answering a clear call from the state it 
serves. Following the growth of social work of all 
kinds in North Carolina and throughout the South, 
which was largely accentuated during the war and 
has since been widely incorporated into public law, 
the need arose for trained social workers, from Red 
Cross secretaries to mill workers, from public wel- 
fare superintendents to community nurses. This 
need the School is trying to meet. 

In conjunction with the Southern Division of the 
American Red Cross, which has thrown time, money, 
and trained teachers and workers into the project, the 
new School was organized early in the year under the 
direction of Dr. Howard W. Odum, formerly of 
Emory University. It began work formally in the 
1920 Summer School in a series of Institutes, with 
State Departments rendering generous assistance. It 
has continued its work this winter with definite courses 
and it has thus far given instruction to 137 students, 
with an additional 18 already enrolled for the next 
quarter beginning in January. 

Graduate School Reborn 

The development of the broad university idea dur- 
ing the past year is further emphasized in the posi- 
tion and growth of the Graduate School under the 
new direction of Dean Edwin Greenlaw. It now has 
an enrollment of 125 which once more is the largest 
in its history. Furthermore, the number represents 
a greater variety and a distinctly higher quality of 
graduate students than ever before. They come from 
14 states and 2 foreign countries. They are holders 
of degrees from :J4 different colleges and universities. 
"A considerable number have already received the 
Master's degree or have had at least one year of 
advanced study, and these, with others who are be- 
ginning a definite program to extend through several 
.years, give to the personnel of the School a maturity 
and seriousness of purpose far more significant for 
the future than the increase in numbers." The estab- 
lishment of a quarterly series of Graduate Bulletins, 
the institution of 20 Teaching Fellowships of an an- 
nual value of $500, the formation of an active and 
vigorous Graduate Club, and plans for the organiza- 
tion of a University of North Carolina Press, which 

will necessarily be closely related to the work of the 
Graduate School, all give evidence of new life, new 
purposes, new appreciation of the importance of a 
University school devoted to productive scholarship, 
to research, and to the definite adding to the world's 
share of knowledge. 

School of Commerce Expanded 

Comparable to the development of the Graduate 
School is the vigor and growing popularity shown 
during the past year by the School of Commerce. In 
its first year it had 150 students. Last year, its second 
year, it jumped in numbers to 246, a 60 per cent in- 
crease despite efforts to hold down the registration to 
those who were imperative in their eagerness for the 
work. The School has taken its place in the life of 
the University and of the state and has already given 
evidence of power and usefulness. A notable feature 
of its work in its first year was the series of lectures 
by business men, including J. E. Latham, cotton 
merchant of Greensboro, Angus W. McLean, of the 
War Finance Corporation, E. F. Hartley, Chief Sta- 
tistician of the Division of Manufactures of the 
Census Bureau, John C. Whitaker, Employment 
Manager of the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. A 
new project just now starting is the making of a 
business survey of North Carolina, this in collabora- 
tion with the United States Bureau of Education. In 
alertness, in soundness of study, in keen sensibility 
to the needs of the state and of the south, this new 
School is showing unusual qualities of leadership. 

Professional Schools Go Forward 

Steady growth and enlarged usefulness during the 
past year have marked also the work of the Law, Med- 
icine, and Pharmac3' Schools. Each is growing ; each 
is furnishing additional evidence of a more important 
position in the life of the University; each sees every 
year a brighter future. The Law School, oldest of 
all the University's professional schools, now in its 
75th year, is completing its change from a two-year 
course to a three-year course. It has a registration 
of 101 students this fall, to which should be added 
the 44 Summer School law students, making a total 
of 145 since last commencement. Thirty students 
stood the bar examination in August and all passed, 
one University student, Miss Kathrine Robinson, of 
Payetteville, making the highest grade. 

The Medical School has this year the largest regis- 
tration it has ever had, 71 students. Insufficient lab- 
oratory space has kept this number down. This year 
85 students applied for entrance to the first year 
class. Only 40 could be accepted, and the other 45 
had to turn elsewhere. Two hundred students are to- 
day enrolled in the pre-medical courses and are plan- 
ning to enter the Medical School. Forty of them, a 
bare 20 per cent, can enter. Lack of space must send 
the remaining 160 elsewhere. The demand for phy- 
sicians in the state is growing, the number of stu- 
dents who want to take the work is growing, but the 
facilities, long since inadequate, must necessarily en- 
force a sharp chopping off. Within the past year the 
departmental library has been very greatly improved, 
the laboratory equipment substantially increased, and 
the teaching staff enlarged by the addition of Dr. W. 
C. George, Associate Professor of Histology and Em- 



In general the same situation exists in the Phar- 
macy School. It too lias the largest registration in its 
history. 64 students; and evidence multiplies that the 
number of applicants will be increased materially in 
the next few years. State legislation is expected short- 
ly requiring graduation from a pharmacy school as 
a pre-requisite for a state license. This is expected 
to increase further the number of applications. 

The Library Increases 

As the one great laboratory in which virtually every 
student must work the University Library has made 
substanial progress in its growth in the past year. 
With a total of 93,914 listed volumes and with a 
special collection of North Carolina material it is by 
far the largest and most complete library in North 
Carolina, and with possibly two others of approxi- 
mately equal rank it stands at the very top of all li- 
braries of all kinds in the southern states. During 
the past year it has added 5,598 volumes to its listed 
collection and it has subscribed to 41 new periodicals, 
7 of which are from foreign countries. Through the 
Extension Bureau it has mailed out to people in the 
State for temporary use during the year 2,309 books 
and pamphlets, an average of nearly 7 a day for the 
whole year. 

Of special importance is the growth of the North 
Carolina collection. From the family of the former 
University president. Dr. Kemp Plummer Battle, it 
acquired 1,300 titles, embracing the following import- 
ant fields : — (1) North Carolina history and bio- 
graphy; (2) southern history and biography; (3) the 
Confederate States of America; (4) the University of 
North Carolina; (5) the Episcopal Church of North 
Carolina and the Confederacy. From the Andrews 
Collection it has acquired i lore than 600 books, pam- 
phlets, and maps, particula 'ly rich in publications re- 
lating to the history of North Carolina and the rail- 
way development of the state and the south. From 
Mrs. Thomas McDoweli it received 92 pamphlets and 
a number of old newspapers and letters concerning 
the state. Other North Carolina material of distinct 
value came from the purchase of the library of Miss 
Christine Fisher, of Salisbury, from the family of 
Mrs. June Spencer Love, from Dr. Charles Lee Raper, 
and others. 

The Business of Publishing 

The wide scope of the University as a publishing 
center is shown by a simple recounting of its period- 
icals. Through tl (forts of the faculty are publish- 
ed periodically (1 ) The University Record, appearing 
12 times a year and containing the catalogue, the 
President's report, and other official records; (2) 
Studies in Philology, a quarterly edited by the lan- 
guage departments, with a circulation among dis- 
tinguished scholars both in this country and in Eu- 
rope; (3 i The Journal of the Elisha Mitchell Scien- 
tific Society, performing a similar function for the 
scientific departments; (4) The Janus Sprunt His- 
torical Publications, published periodically by the 
North Carolina Historical Society: (5) The High 
School Journal, a monthly published by the School of 
Education; (6) The News Letter, published 51) times 
a year by the University for the Bureau of Exten- 
sion; and (7) The Alumni Revii •. published 9 times 
a year by the Alumni Association. To these should be 
added The Carolina Chemist, published by the fac- 
ulty and students of the Chemistry Department. 

As strictly student activities there are the follow- 
ing publications: — (1) The Tar Heel, a semi-weekly 

newspaper of the campus; (2) The Carolina Tar 
Baby, a humorous magazine published monthly, with 
the largest circulation of any student publication in 
the southern states; (3) The Carolina Magazine, a 
serious-minded monthly dealing largely with current 
events and thought on and off the campus; and two 
Y. M. C. A. publications, The University of Xorth 
Carolina Handbook, containing information largely 
for new students, and The Director!/. 

In addition the University Bureau of Extension 
has published during the year 5 Extension Bulletins, 
ranging from 15 to 100 pages in length, with a total 
circulation of 12,000 copies; and 9 Extension Leaflets, 
with a combined circulation of 32,000 copies. The 
News Letter alone has a circulation close to 20,000 
copies weekly. The combined work in gathering ma- 
terial, editing, publishing, and distributing all these 
publications, which are simple, evidences of a few of 
the University's various activities constitutes in it- 
self a business which for magnitude and quality it 
is hard to duplicate in the south. 

University Seeks to Serve 

Side by side with the steady growth of the Univer- 
sity as a university has been the steady growth in the 
service which aside from its strictly collegiate 'work 
it has given to the state. Nine years ago the Uni- 
versity definitely and formally abandoned all trace of 
the cloistral idea of education and set itself to the 
task of making every resource within its rock walls 
a part of the daily life of all the people in the state. 
It sought to carry the University, the property of the 
people, to those who made it and owned it. That pol- 
icy, it has pursued continuously and with marked 
success, and the record of the past year is the tale 
of continued linking in with the people whenever and 
wherever assistance could be rendered, whether it be 
in so simple an act as sending a reference book to an 
Alleghany county school teacher or in organizing and 
leading high school athletics or in developing water 
power in Caldwell county or in helping beautify school 
grounds in Sampson or in teaching 700 women the 
mechanics of voting. 

Rural Engineering 

The Bureau of Extension, the definite agent, of this 
spirit of service, has increased its usefulness in many 
ways. Through its Division of Rural Engineering, 
which is an adjunct of the Xorth Carolina Highway 
Commission, it has given assistance throughout the 
state to rural communities in the installation of water 
and water systems, electric power and lighting sys- 
tems, and telephones. It has answered calls from 176 
persons in 68 counties, of which 103 related to gen- 
eral power development, 44 to water power, 24 to 
water supply, 3 to telephones, 2 to housing. Personal 
visits have been made in 101 instances. 26 surveys 
carried out, 27 streams gauged, plans and blue prints 
made for 32 projects, and 72 cost estimates have been 
prepared. A laboratory for the testing of electrical 
power outfits for farm purposes has been equipped at 
Chapel Hill, numerous electrical appliances have been 
assembled and tested, and a record of different types 
of installation has been worked out for the guidance 
of North Carolina purchasers. 



State Developing in Drama 

Further extension work has been done through the 
Division of Community Drama. The Raleigh Ter- 
centenary Pageant-Drama, Raleigh : The Shepherd of 
the Ocean, written by the director, Professor P. H. 
Koch, was produced in Raleigh, October 19, 20, and 
21, largely under the leadership of this division. A 
pageant of the Cape Fear has been written for Wil- 
mington in collaboration under the personal super- 
vision of the Director, another is being written for 
Halifax county by the teachers of that county and 
plans are under way for a community drama at Red 
Springs built around the story of Flora McDonald to 
be produced at the 200th anniversary of her birth. The 
demand for plays from schools has become so insist- 
ent that an assistant has been added to the Division 
to supervise this work. And the work of The Caro- 
lina Playmakers of Chapel Hill in writing, producing, 
and acting original North Carolina folk-lore plays 
has become so successful that not only have North 
Carolina communities sought to have these plays pre- 
sented in the different cities, but national attention 
has been directed to them and warm praise has come 
in from nationally known dramatic critics and actors. 

Beautifying School Grounds 
A new plan this year has been the organization of 
a Division of Design and Improvement of School 
Grounds with the simple object of turning the bleak, 
bare earth around the hundreds of North Carolina 
school buildings into a plot of beauty and of helping 
in designing the grounds of new buildings. Dr. W. 
C. Coker, who heads this division, is the man who made 
the University Arboretum, who laid out the grounds 
of the new Pre-byterian Church at Chapel Hill, 
whose name has become a by-word in Chapel Hill for 
creating beauty out of nature. A number of projects 
are now imder way. 

Studying the State 

With the belief that a pre-requisite of service is 
knowledge, much activity within the Bureau is con- 
cerned with a thorough study of North Carolina to 
the end that North Carolinians may know the poten- 
tial strength of their commonwealth. The Rural 
Social Science Department has made during the past 
year 28 special county studies, including 4 already in 
print — Gaston, Halifax, Beaufort, and Pitt; has made 
32 studies of state-wide range, 27 of which have ap- 
peared in The News Litter; and has through the 
North Carolina Club spent a year's work on recon- 
struction problems in this state in the course of which 
a group of 75-100 students under faculty leadership 
analyzed the state and sought to find weaknesses for 
correction and strength for development. In the 
same way the School of Education has made several 
exhaustive surveys of school conditions in North 
Carolina, notably in Wake county and Roanoke 

During the Summer School two institutes were held 
for the first time in conjunction with state depart- 
ments and for the benefit of state workers and asrents. 
One was the 10-day Institute for the Bureau of Com- 
munity Service, under the direction of W. C. Crosby, 
head of the Bureau. The other was at the instance 
of Miss Elizabeth Kelly of the State Department of 
Education for the benefit of the teachers engaged in 
the campaign against adult illiteracy. Both were de- 

finite examples of the University's throwing its forces 
into definite state work. 

The Bureau of Extension includes in its work such 
activities as the holding of state high school champion- 
ship contests in football, basketball, baseball, track, 
and tennis ; a state-wide high school debate in which 
last year 200 high schools participated ; the dissemina- 
tion of general information through the loaning of 
books; the organization of home study courses; the 
development of community music ; the assisting of 
community centers, notably those at Rocky Mount, 
Salisbury, Greensboro, and Red Springs ; the pro- 
viding of scores of speakers for lectures and addresses 
of all sorts ; the organization of a Municipal and Com- 
munity Reference Division ; and the publication of 
thousands of copies of bulletins and leaflets. 

Helping Women's Clubs 

The past year has seen two new and far-reaching 
strides in the development of its work with women's 
clubs. Two years ago it adopted the policy of seek- 
ing to aid individuals and individual clubs in their 
work, to furnish outlines and material for study, to 
prepare programs dealing with modern problems. 
The work had spread widely. Two years ago 42 clubs 
were studying definite courses prepared at the Uni- 
versity; last year it was 120 clubs. Two years ago 
806 women were enrolled; last year 1.900, of whom 
1,000 were North Carolinians. Two years ago 1,000 
books and pamphlets were loaned by the University 
Library to club members for study purposes; last' 
year 1,500. Thirty-seven towns in North Carolina 
were represented in this work as well as cities in 13 
other states. The programs used were one on Amer- 
icanization, by Mrs. T. W. Lingle; one on Citizen- 
ship, by Dean D. D. Carroll; one on Our Heritage, by 
Dr. J. H. Hanford; one on Constructive Ventures in 
Government, by Dr. Howard W. Odum. Another is 
in course of preparation, Modern Drama, by Miss 
Elizabeth Lay. 

Ideals of Service and Leadership 

The citing of these few lines of work does not im- 
ply that the University limits its program of service 
to the people of the state to a score of definite fields. 
It places no limit anywhere save in the limit of its 
material resources. Its students, its faculty, its ad- 
ministrative forces, many of its alumni, have thrown 
themselves and their equipment, mental, material, 
spiritual headlong into the ideal of state service. Con- 
nection with the University implies immediately vital 
and continuous connection with all the forces that 
seek to better the state. Individually and collect- 
ively the University and all her servants and sons 
and daughters are children of the state, and to their 
great mother they wovdd dedicate all that they are 
and have. 

With such a record during the past year the Uni- 
versity is pressing on and on in her never-ending 
march toward the up-building of the ideal common- 
wealth. The great objective of teaching to hundreds 
and thousands of young North Carolinians the liber- 
ating influence of knowledge and thought and char- 
acter has been kept constantly in the fore-front by 
the University leaders. With all her growth and her 
expanding she would never lose for one instant her 
primary duty of teaching and of assisting the state's 
young citizens to learn and know the fundamentals 



of education. She will never forget that the daily 
personal contact between master and scholar is the 
first aim and the last desire of the state which has 
created its own public school system on the ideals of 
American democracy; and the growth of professional 
schools and the extension of university activities only 
serve to strengthen that ideal. 

The University has gone further. She has shot out 
her lines of power and light to the corners of the 
state. She has released her strength to the people 

who gave her strength. In so living ami growing 
she is only following the natural trend of healthy 
growth. If such a position and such an ideal involve 
tie" duties of leadership, that responsibility she 
gladly accepts. Because her ideals are the ideals of 

the state she seeks to serve she has inherently tl s- 

sentials of position ; that she will use her position to 
swing forward the whole state is written in the record 
of the last year and of all her century and a quarter 
of service. ■ 


The movement to give the people of North Carolina 
the glaring facts about their crowded, crippled col 
leges has taken on the proportions of a people's cru- 
sade. Witness the uprising of the people in the coun- 
trysides of Rockingham county, the large enthusias- 
tic public gathering into a church from the busy 
streets of Charlotte, the mass meeting in the New- 
Hanover courthouse, and the educational rally held 
in the courthouse in Raleigh. 

Wentworth Leads Off 

Into the village of Wentworth, where live about 
six dozen people around the Rockingham county 
courthouse, some three hundred and fifty people came 
from the ends of the county — Leaksville, Spray, 
Draper, Madison, and Reidsville — bent upon facing 
the crisis in the life of their colleges and university. 
A citizens' committee of such live wires as Messrs. P. 
H. Gwynn, Jr., Luther Hodges, W. E. Price, and 
M. T. Smith organized the meeting. The Marshall 
Field hand was a popular feature of the meeting. T. 
I). Stokes of the Law School. Miss Mabel Stamper of 
the North Carolina College for Women, and Frank 
P. Graham of the University, presented the college- 
wide facts and the state-wide issues focused in the 
present desperate college congestion. Vigorous reso- 
lutions were adopted, backing up the Greensboro 
Chamber of Commerce and calling on the legislature 
to meet the situation with ample provisions in build- 
ings and equipment. 

At the conclusion of the speakers' addresses Rev. 
Johnson of the Reidsville Baptist Church arose in the 
audience and upon being recognized by Chairman 
Gwynn said in a manner that brought a cheer from 
the crowd : 

"I speak not as a Wake Forest graduate, not 
merely as a college man but as a citizen of North 
Carolina and I hope the legislators from Rockingham 
county are here to hear what I say and that they feel 
with us the power of this citizens' meeting. Take the 
word back to the boys and girls in the colleges of 
North Carolina to hold the fort until the people 
come. The people are coming up." 

Charlotte and the New Declaration 
The largest public mass meeting and one all shot 
through with enthusiasm was held in Charlotte. The 

spacious auditorium of the First Baptist Church was 
filled with a representative public-minded Charlotte 
crowd. The parent-teachers association, the Rotary 
and Kiwanis Clubs and other civic-spirited groups 
were promoters of the meeting. Harry P. Harding, 
Brent Drane. M. R. Dunnagan, F. 0. Clarkson. W. 
A. Jenkins and Charles Tillett, Jr., were among those 
whose energy and spirit gave momentum to the gather- 

Col. T. L. Kirkpatrick, ex-mayor of Charlotte, pre- 
sided and punctuated the stages of the program with 
pithy Bransonian facts. Rev. W. A. Jenkins of the 
Methodist Church opened the meeting with prayer. 
The superintendent of schools in clear-cut ideas 
stated the Object of the mass meeting. Dr. C. Al- 
phonso Smith, of Davidson, Louisiana. Carolina, 
Virginia, and now of Annapolis, the greatest univer- 
sity afloat, returned from the Naval Academy with a 
stirring message for the state that claims and loves 
him as her son and is honored in his distinguished 
career as scholar, author and teacher! Dr. Smith 
vividly presented the cause of education and the 
crisis of the hour in North Carolina. He arrested at- 
tention by his picture of the North Carolina high 
school graduate distanced by the high school grad- 
uates of the forty-four other states of the union. He 
stined his audience with the idea of a student body 
of 5,000 at the University of North Carolina. Dr. 
Smith was true to form. He spoke with finished elo- 
quence and made a deep impression 

President Julius I. Foust presented the condition 
and needs of the North Carolina College for Women. 
He emphasized the fact that congestion was state- 
wide among state and denominational colleges. His 
fon-eful talk was made emphatically concrete by the 
I'aet that he had denied admittance to 481 girls. 

Dr. W. A. Withers, vice-president of the North 
Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineer- 
ing, told of the cramped, crippled plant in Raleigh. 
Ten thousand dollars worth of machinery, a gift, had 
no room at the congested state college. Three and 
even four men in some cases were crowded into one 

The critical condition of the University and the 
argent cause of education in general — state, denominn- 



tion, white, and colored — was the theme of Frank 
Graham of the University. Into his talk was packed 
pictures of the crowded dormitory life and the con- 
gested equipment at the University, the public school 
system breaking down at the top, the abundant re- 
sources of the state rising above the temporary hard 
times, and a call to the people in the cause of .youth. 
"Revaluation of property in North Carolina demands 
a revaluation of youth to North Carolina." 

The mass meeting immediately passed vigorous in- 
structions to the representatives in the General As- 
sembly to vote a bond issue and taxes to lift the col- 
leges out of their terrible congestion. Clarence O. 
Kuester, known in Charlotte as "Booster Kuester," a 
promoter of all public enterprises, took charge of the 
raising of a fund to be compounded with the Greens- 
boro fund for educating the people to education. Word 
Wood and A. J. Draper gave $500 apiece ; George 
Stephens and C. W. Tillett, Sr., $100 apiece; David 
Clark and S. B. Alexander, Jr., $50 apiece; and J. B. 
Efird $25, all contributed through the good offices of 
M. R. Dunnagan and John R. Purser, treasurer. 

Raleigh Moves to the Front 

The Raleigh mass meeting was presided over by 
Dr. E. C. Brooks, State superintendent of public in- 
struction, who is a very wheel horse in the public 
educational movement. President W. C. Riddick, 
Robert B. House and others, in clear and force- 
ful manner drove home the facts of congestion and 
the crying need for action on the part of the next 
legislature. The Raleigh meeting emphasized the 
state-wide needs piled up at the University, State Col- 
lege, N. C. C. W., E. C. T. T. S., Jackson Training 
School, the Sanatorium, the Insane Asylums, the 
Deaf, Dumb, and Blind Institutions. A committee 
was appointed to head up and organize into action the 
feelings and spirit of the meeting. 

Wilmington: "As Skirmishers, Guide Right." 

The Wilmington mass meeting was presided over by 
Judge W. P. Stacy and was addressed by Miss Laura 
Coit of the North Carolina College for Women, Pro- 
fessor Withers of the A. & E., and Professor C. W. 
Wilson of the Eastern Carolina Training School. 
They presented facts of congested growth character- 
istic of these institutions. 

Professor E. C. Branson, as always, eloquent with 
convicting facts, contrasted the bankruptcy of the 
colleges with the resources of the state. He said that 
the state has passed out of the period of deficit econ- 
omy and should provide for education in terms of 
an actual surplus economy. Professor Branson said 
an $18,000,000 bond issue could be carried $3,000,000 
a year for six years, by a per capita tax of 47 cents. 
That would pay the bonds and interest in thirty-six 

Legislators from adjoining comities were present 
at this meeting. Active in the promotion of this meet- 
ing were C. C. Covington, I. C. Wright, Dr. J. G. 
Murphy, Marsden Bellamy, Harry M. Solomon, Mil- 
ton Calder and W. P. Stacy. J. O. Carr introduced 
resolutions adopted by the people calling on the legis- 
lature for action. 

These men co-operated with the alumni of State 
College, alumnae of the N. C. C. W.. and the Eastern 
Carolina Training School, and other public spirited 
citizens. An intercollegiate and citizens' committee 
was organized at the University banquet which went 
into executive session and planned the Wilmington 
mass meeting only a week before it was held. 

Wilmington got a late start but got into action 
fast after getting started. Sixty a;umni, Miss Jeffer- 
ies of the N. C. C. W., and two enthusiastic repre- 
sentatives of the A. & E., joined the toastmaster, 
C. C. Covington and the speaker of the eveninjr, 
F. P. Graham, of the University in the call and plan 
for giving the people the facts. 

"The People are Making Good" 

What Rockingham county, Charlotte, Raleigh, and 
Wilmington have done so successfully in bringing the 
facts straight to the people, can be done all over 
North Carolina. If every county and town in the 
state follow their lead, North Carolina will put her 
shoulder to the congested load of the colleges and 
open the doors through which her sons and daughters 
shall pass into the leadership of America. In the 
slogan of Rockingham county, "The people are com- 
ing up ! " 


Through the University of California the Library 
is in receipt of forty-three volumes of the publications 
issued by that institution in celebration of its semi- 
centennial, published by the University of California 
Press. The collection contains some of the most 
important books written by members of the faculty 
of the University, together with contributions by rep- 
resentatives of other institutions whose works have 
been published by the University. 

The Libraiy is also in receipt of a number of 
books and journals given it by Dr. Charles Lee Raper, 
former professor of economics and dean of the Grad- 
uate School. 


The engagement of Miss Edith Wilson, daughter 
of Dr. H. V. Wilson, and Prof. Thorndike Saville, 
of the University, was announced at a tea given re- 
cently by Mrs. Joseph Hyde Pratt and Mrs. Ralph 
Risley at the home of Mrs. Pratt. No date was an- 
nounced for the wedding. 




Three Great Declarations 

Throe extremely important papers were presented 
for the consideration of North Carolinians during- the 
past month which every alumnus of the University 
and every educated, intelligent citizen of North Caro- 
lina should study and act upon. 

Of these Philander P. Claxton, U. S. Commissioner 
of Education, presented the first under the title The 
State's Meager Investment in Education, in which 
he showed that "in all of the 250 years of North Caro- 
lina's histoiy it has expended for education in all 
schools, colleges and universities several million dol- 
lars less than the amount of taxes paid to the Treas- 
urer of the United States by the state in a single 
year" and that the total amount the University, the 
A. & E., the Normal Schools, the Schools for the 
Deaf, Dumb, and Blind, and the Colored Normal 
Schools received during the half century 1870 to 1920 
was only $22,000,000, an amount $8,000,000 less than 
the city of Detroit alone is spending on its schools 
in the year 1920-21. 


The Survey Reveals the Sore 

An analysis of the resultant conditions of blighting 
ignorance and illiteracy, of woeful backwardness and 
inefficiency in the common schools of the state, of 
starvation salaries, of lack of equipment and re- 
sources for high schools and institutions of higher 
education growing out of the miserly spending of the 
state for educational purposes, constitutes the second 
paper entitled Public Education in North Carolina 
issued by the State Educational Commission of which 
R. H. Wright, '97, is Chairman and N. W. Walker, 
'03, and L. J. Bell, '98, are members. 

For the first time in the history of the state a 
thorough-going, scientific survey of the entire educa- 
tional system of North Carolina has been worked out 
and the findings, good or bad, presented to the peo- 
ple. During the recent session of the North Carolina 
Teachers' Assembly at Asheville these findings were 
made the principal topic of discussion, and before 
the meeting of the approaching legislature a new 
school law will be drafted embodying reforms es- 
sential to a general forward program in North Caro- 
lina public education. 


Has History Taught Us Anything? 

The third paper is that of Dr. ■]. (',. de K. Hamil- 
ton, of the department of History of the University, 
presented before the State Literary and Historical 
Society entitled Vitality in State History. 

Defining vitality "as that character in event or 
movement which makes it a determining factor for 
good or for evil, in the shaping of the conditions, 
present and future, of the generation in which one 
lives, which gives sounder notions of human and so- 
cial interests, which relates man to the business of liv 
ing," Dr. Hamilton propounded the following ques- 
tions which all North Carolinians should in serious- 
ness consider and particularly alumni of the Univer- 
sity who are at present attempting to co-operate in 
a program which will result in a genuine forward 
movement in North Carolina's civilization: 

If the things which I have indicated constitute the vital 
in history, must we not revist i past attitude towards the 

history of the state as we have taught it and chiefly em- 
phasized it? Let us ask ourselves frankly if we have not 
been inclined to emphasize in that history the things which 
are, if vital at all, of secondary importance in reaching 
correct judgments concerning the things which have made 
us what we are, or concerning the problems of the state to- 
day? As a result of the teaching of our history does the 
average North Carolinian have any background of knowledge 
and training by which lie can analyze existing situations in 
order to base opinion concerning them and conduct in relation 
to them upon a sure foundation.' Have we not, in a too eager 
desire for primacy, too frequently selected for emphasis hap- 
penings which have had little or no real influence on the 
later life of our people, which play no part in our life today? 
Similarly, have we not ignored the conditions, movements, and 
tendencies which have vitality, which would serve to explain 
to us why we are what we are, an analysis of which might 
render us more capable of shaping our destiny for the better? 
Frankly, have we not sought to write and teach the things cal- 
culated to develop a sort of purposeless ancestor worship, to 
breed perfect contentment, a smug satisfaction with what we 
are and have been, rather than to emphasize the larger and 
more significant facts calculated to breed dissatisfaction, a 
divine discontent which might lead us faster along the paths 
of progress? 

Again, we emphasize the individualistic tendencies of our 
people as indicating a love of liberty, but we fail to show that 
it has manifested itself most notably in our inability to or- 
ganize effectively for the common good, to develop any wide- 
spread civic consciousness and civic responsibility, to see in 
taxation a method of co-operative undertaking for the general 
welfare. Dislike of taxes has through denial of opportunity 
to the majority kept us in a state of servitude. This ser- 
vitude has not been confined to the ignorant. Those it has 
crushed utterly, cutting them off from their God given heri- 
tage of freedom, and denying to them and their children lib- 
city ami the pursuit of happiness, and in many cases life it- 
self, all three of which we have solemnly declared in the 
Declaration of Independence to be inalienable rights of man- 
kind. It has imposed upon the rest, the enlightened, as well, 
a heavy burden — that of carrying the dead weight of the 
whole, and of seeing all their ambitions for North Carolina's 
swift advancement die as the gravity of the load irresistibly 
held them back on the paths of progress until in many eases 
hope itself died. 


Again, the Hour of Destiny 

On a parity with these three papers and the taxa- 
tion program completed at the special session of the 
legislature in August, is the recently published pro- 
gram of the North Carolina Good Roads Association, 
calling for 5,500 miles of good roads, legislation for 
which, if properly placed upon the statute books, will 
not only lift North Carolina out of the mud. but will 
supplement, through better means of communication, 

the great educational advai proposed by the school 

and college authorities. 

In these documents North Carolina has given ev- 
idence of vision. It remains for the men and women 
who have seen these visions to present them to their 
fellow citizens with such power and effectiveness as 
will call all the forwarding moving forces of North 
< arolina to their support.

Educational Campaign Leader 

As an outgrowth of the Greensboro educational 
meeting, Senator A. M. Scales of Guilford has been 
chosen as the director of the campaign for higher 
education in North Carolina. Aggressive and pro- 
gressive, Senator Scales is an ideal man to lead this 
campaign. The statement issued by Mr. Scales in 
connection with his appointment shows that he will 
throw his whole energy in this state-wide effort to 
provide adequate educational facilities for the boys 
and girls of North Carolina. 

The Review calls upon every alumnus of the Uni- 
versity to rally to Senator Scales' support and help 
carry on this campaign which in importance to North 
Carolina will rank with those carried out in the 
eighties by Alderman, Mclver, Noble, Joyner, and 
others, and by Charles B. Avcoek in 1900. 


The normal scale of salaries adopted for members 
of the faculty of Yale University is: Instructors, 
first year, $1,500, second year $1,800, third year 
$2,100, fourth year and thereafter $2,500; Instruc- 
tors rendering exceptional service, $3,000; Assistant 
Professors, first appointment (normally three years) 
$3,000, second $3,500. third $1,000; Assistant Pro- 
fessors rendering exceptional service and Associate 
Professors, $1,500 or $5,000; Professors $5,000. $0.01)1). 
$7,000, or $8,000. The maximum will be increased to 
$10,000 in the immediate future. 

President Birge, of the University of Wisconsin, 
has presented a budget to the Wisconsin legislature 
calling for a total of $15,3-1!), 765 for the biennium 
1921-23. The legislature of 1919 appropriated a 
total of $10,730, 13S dividing the amount with $4,615,- 
546 for 1919-21). and $11,114,792 for 1920-21. 

The University of Texas is asking for $7,500,000 
as a building fund for 1921-23. 

Ground has been broken at Emory University, At- 
lanta, for a $2,500,000 hospital to be operated in con- 
nection with the medical college of that University. 

The cost of running Yale University has increased 
from $1,600,000 in 1914-15 to considerably more than 
$2,500,000 in 1920-21. 

Haverford College has spent on its students, since 
1880, in excess of reciepts from them, a sum which, 
if it had borne interest at five per cent since its ex- 
penditure, would amount to more than $4,000,000. 
The college attendance has never been over 200. 

The general assembly of Louisiana has recently ap- 
propriated $2,500,000 a year for two years as a build- 
ing fund for the University of Louisiana. 

A paper which has attracted unusual attention in 
the scientific world is one by Dr. A. S. Wheeler of 
the department of chemistry, entitled Para Cy.nene 
as a Solvent, and published in the Journal of the 
American Chemical Society in September. The cy- 
mene concerning which the article is written was 
obtained from spruce turpentine, which, in turn, is 
a by-product in paper making. The solubilities of 
many organic compounds in cymene were worked out 
quantitatively and certain suggestions were made for 
the use of cymene in the industries and in research 
laboratories. Dr. Wheeler was assisted in the work 
which was made the basis of the paper by T. P. 
Dawson, J. S. Murray, R. H. Sawyer and H. M. 

Two pamphlets from the pen of Gen. Julian S. 
Carr are : The Hampton Roads Conference, being 
a refutation of the statement that Mr. Lincoln said 
if Union was written at the top the Southern com- 
missioners might fill in the balance ; and Sir Walter 
Raleigh, a proposal by General Carr as president of 
the Sir Walter Raleigh Memorial Association to erect 
a fitting memorial to the great Elizabethan statesman- 

Under the title Halifax County : Economic and So- 
cial, Sidney B. Allen and R. Stanford Travis, Jr.,

The publication, which belongs to a series begun two 
years ago in which a half dozen studies have already 
appeared contains the following chapters: Histori- 
cal Background; Industries and Opportunities; Facts 
about the Folk; Wealth and Taxation ; Rural Schools; 
Home-Raised Food and the Local Market Problem;

The Road to Health Is Smooth 
and Clear If You Use Nujol 

By C. Houston Qoudiss 
Publisher, The Forecast and Lecturer on Food and Nutrition 

THE real Road to Health is an 
intestinal highway 30 feet 
long. When Constipation clogs 
this road, it's the same as when a 
landslide blocks a mountain pass. 
There is a difference, however. 
Constipation not only blocks the 
way, but breeds poisons which 
menace health. 

The obstruction in the mountain 
pass can be blown out with dyna- 
mite, and the obstruction in the 
intestines CAN be blown out with 
powerful drugs — but any drug 
powerful enough to do this is 
bound to harm the body. 

There is only one way to relieve 
Constipation without in the least 
measure endangering the delicate 
mechanism of the human system. 
That is the Nujol way. 

Nujol is absolutely harmless. It is 
NOT a drug. Not a particle of it 
is assimilated by the body. All it 
does is to soften the mass impacted 
in the colon and lubricate the way 
to normal expulsion. 

Nujol does this without causing 
any pain or discomfort. It does 
not in any way interfere with the 
digestive processes. It has no more 
effect on the delicate membranes 
and tissues than to smooth and 
soothe them. It is a healing force 
which gently but effectively re- 
moves the intestinal obstruction, 
and performs this great service to 
health without in any way lessen- 
ing Nature's provisions for protec- 
tion. Its sole province is to help 
Nature help herself. Nearly every- 
one is subject to Constipation at 
some time or other. Nearly every- 
one has proved the worthlessness 
of ordinary "remedies" as to last- 
ing results. 

Now try Nujol — and learn that 
there is a lasting relief for this

The RefmShaving Stick 

Like put- 
ting a new 
your razor 

FASTENING the "Refill" Shaving 
Stick into your Colgate "Handy 
Grip" takes but a moment. It is 
like putting a new blade in your 
razor. The soap itself is threaded. 

Your "Handy Grip" will last for 
years. Colgate "Refill" Shaving 
Sticks cost you the price of the ex- 
cellent soap alone. 

Shaving with Colgate's makes it un- 
necessary to rub the fragrant, soft- 
ening lather in with the fingers. 

We took the rub out of shaving, 
originally, away back in 1 903.

economical way to make

IVe can give you this 
impartial advice because 
we make Shoeing Stick', 
Powder and Cream.

any of these. 

Sending Horse Power 
Nation -Wide 

FAR up in the hills the force ot 
a waterfall is being changed 
into that invisible power which 
runs through a wire. 

This power, electricity, is always 
available because it can be carried 
from the place where it is gener- 
ated to the place where it is used, 
quickly, cheaply, safely, and in any 
amount. A coal mine in Pennsyl- 
vania and a waterfall in Maine may 
feed the same system of wires, to 
supply power for an industry in 
Massachusetts and for a water 
pump on a Delaware farm. 

The General Electric Company 
has provided the means for devel- 
oping Nature's dormant resources 
into electric power and transmit- 
ting this power. In addition, it is con- 
tinually creating or bringing nearer 
to perfection, apparatus to apply this 
power and devices to regulate and 
distribute it to greatest advantage. 

And in doing this, the General 
Electric Company is unceasingly 
striving to conserve raw materials, 
such as fuel, which may better 
serve mankind in other ways.
