AN EPIC IN DEMOCRACY AND PROGRESS 

ALUMNI WILL STAGE BIG REUNIONS 

CAROLINA JOINS SOUTHERN CONFERENCE 

ALUMNI OF THE FOURTH ESTATE 



Wanted: Trained Men 

The University Agency has voted unanimously that the University needs 
a stronger and more healthy support from the citizens of North Carolina. It 
urges the State to become better acquainted with the conditions at its University, 
and to instruct its legislators to make the appropriation asked for by the 
authorities. 

The University Agency realizes the fact that trained young men are the 
greatest asset to any state, and that an investment in higher education will bring 
in returns doubled many times. The future of the State is in the hands of the 
young men of today, and we implore the State to train them to the task. 

We are "doing our hit" by co-operating with Carolina students and alumni 
in protecting their credit, their homes and business interests. Write us or come 
to see us and let us serve you.

Number 7 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



To the Alumni: 

The General Assembly of 1921 has, in the truest 
sense of the words, "passed into history" — into the 
history of North Carolina. Its achievements open 
a new chapter in the development of a great State. 
Significant as are its contributions to the material wel- 
fare of North Carolina, it has done a thing of even 
greater moment in its provision for the young men 
and women to whom the destinies of the State will be 
committed. Nothing the State could have done would 
have made so secure its own future. 

The fight for higher education, to which months ago 
you dedicated yourselves, is won. It is true that the 
six-year building program, which the institutions 
honestly thought wisest both for them and for the 
State, did not prevail. But the two-year program 
which did prevail provides adequate funds for the 
period which it covers, and nowhere is there any dis- 
position to regard it as a substitute for the full pro- 
gram. It is simply the first long step toward its full 
realization. 

The University is safe. Her maintenance funds 
have been more than doubled, and the sum for build- 
ings and permanent improvements during the next 
two years is approximately a million and a half of 
dollars; nearly a half million dollars more than the 
State has expended for buildings at Chapel Hill dur- 
ing the whole history of the University. Just as 
rapidly as buildings can be erected, the present 
crowded conditions of the campus can be relieved, the 
number of students increased, and adequate teaching 
space provided. Salaries can be kept at the level 
at which the timely gift of the General Education 
Board temporarily placed them, so that a strong fac- 
ulty is assured. The University, in short, is set free 
for fuller and finer service to the State. She takes 
up her task with new vigor, she faces the future with 
courage and confidence. 

No formal words of gratitude can ever set forth the 
debt which the University owes to you, her alumni. 
Both in the legislature and in the State you have one 
and all striven without ceasing for her welfare, not 
in any spirit of selfish ambition for her, but because 
you believed in the potency of the service she could 
render to the State. Without you, the fight had not 
been won. Because of you, there lie ahead secure 
years of growing usefulness. We, to whom her im- 
mediate future is committed, pledge you that, so far 
as in us lies, we will be worthy of the trust you have 
reposed in us — that the University you love so well 
shall, under God, go forward in strength and in 
service. 

Faithfully yours, 
H. W. CHASE, President.

What the University Gets 

Four years ago the University gut tor maintenance 
$3:50,000 as a total for the two-year period and $500,- 



000 for permanent improvements. Two years ago the 
University received $430,000 as a total two-year 
maintenance fund. The legislature recently adjourned 
voted $925,000 as a two-year maintenance fund 
($445,000 for 1921 and $180,000 for 1922) and $1,490,- 
000 for permanent improvements for two years. The 
State educational and benevolent institutions in addi- 
tion to adequate maintenance funds are to receive 
a total of $6,745,000 for permanent improvements. 
Also these institutions have the assurance that upon 
the wise, prompt, and careful administration of their 
trust depends the entire six-year program. 

ODD 

What it Means to the University 

The action of the legislature provides for the insane 
now in the jails, for crippled and defective children, 
for unfortunate women, for incorrigible boys, and 
for the congested youth in the colleges. 

The action of the legislature means that the Uni- 
versity is in time to be second to no university in the 
South. Already the states of the South ai'e sending 
in their congratulations to North Carolina on her 
big road, institutional, school, and public welfare 
program, and are asking how was it all done. It means 
that the University for example can hold her strong 
men and compete in the markets of the world for 
other strong men. It means that the University can 
not only live but also grow in the proportion of the 
needs of the great people she seeks to serve. 

DDD 

What Is Being Done Now 

It is planned to extend the railroad from Carrboro 
to somewhere back of the power house. Three pre- 
liminary surveys have already been made*. A loan of 
$40,000 has already been arranged to finance the build- 
ing of the road. The first year of operation will pay 
for the road in saving on drayage. A preliminary 
report has been made on extension of water, heating. 
and electric service lines. 

An effort is being made to get a camp of fifty 
convicts from the State prison board for use in the 
building of the railroad, in grading new tennis courts 
ami athletic field, in making of a park of 500 acres 
of woodland adjoining the campus, and to put the 
Mason farm in order for dairying and truck farming. 

Preliminary plans are being made for language 
building, history, commerce, and public welfare build- 
ing, a law building, additional units for dining hall, 
and at least live dormitories. 

These plans outlined above plus $50,000 in houses 
(to lie rented to the congested faculty), plus $58,000 in 
departmental equipment, plus $35,000 in needed dor- 
mitory furniture, will as estimated by Business Mana- 
ger Woollen, practically round out the $1,490,000 in 
two years. 

The executive committee of the trustees elected J. 
Bryan Grimes, Jas. A. Gray, .John Sprunt Hill,

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Haywood Parker, George Stephens, Business Manager 
Woollen, and President Chase to be the Building Com- 
mission of the University. This commission is to 
select the architect immediately, and all the prelimi- 
nary plans will be turned over to him. A construc- 
tion engineer is to be selected to co-operate in esti- 
mates with the architect. It is planned to let to one 
construction firm at one time a $1,000,000 contract 
awarded on the competitive basis. That firm will 
bring in a labor camp and set up a village with its 
own housing, feeding and entertainment provisions 
somewhat distinct and distant from Chapel Hill. 

DDD 

What It Means to the Alumni 

Mr. Alumnus, this program has a meaning for you — 
a responsibility which fits down snug on your 
shoulders. 

Prom cellar to housetop we as alumni have pro- 
claimed that we have more than matched dollar for 
dollar put up by the State for the use of the Uni- 
versity. We have dared the State to come across. 
And she has come! 

What now? First, it is up to us to know more 
about Alma Mater than ever before — intimate, de- 
tailed knowledge — so we can help her work out her 
enlarged program. 

Second, to dig down into our pockets to fill out 
The Complete University. The State has assumed the 
job of housing and feeding and teaching the student 
body. But it is up to us to enrich the campus life 
through the provision of essentials which will round 
out the development of the University: scholarships, 
fellowships, endowments for lectures in special fields, 
the establishment of book funds, special publications, 
the beautification of the campus, the Alumni Loyalty 
Fund, and the Graham Memorial. 

And the time — is now!

At the invitation of Daniel L. Grant, editor-in-chief 
of The Tar Heel, sixteen college editors representing 
thirteen college publications in North Carolina, meet- 
ing in Chapel Hill early in February, organized the 
North Carolina College Press Association and laid 
out plans for helping each other in handling college 
news and college newspapers. 

It was the first such meeting ever held in North 
Carolina. The editors, including six women, arranged

planned other matters of mutual interest. President 
Chase and Professors Hibbard and Graham spoke to 
the meeting.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW

AN EPIC IN DEMOCRACY AND PROGRESS 

( Dedicated to the Unnamed Soldiers deployed from the Mountains to the Sea" ) 



The State of North Carolina in the view of the 
News and Observer is in a valiant frame of mind. 
In the face of fraction and hard times the legislature 
of 1921 "seized the hour of decision with the master- 
ful faith of the people in heroic mood" and voted to 
build 5,500 miles of hard-surfaced roads, a greater 
public school system and university, more adequate 
women's college, agricultural and engineering college, 
teacher training schools, hospitals and asylums. North 
Carolina by a single leap has challenged the emula- 
tion of the Southern states and has caught the atten- 
tion of the nation. Those who formerly "viewed with 
alarm" and shame can now "point with pride" and 
rejoice in the mood of a people "resurgent, progres- 
sive, victorious." 

The mightiest single force in this working of this 
hopeful, progressive revolution in a pessimistic re- 
actionary time has been the newspapers which in 
news columns and editorials from October to the last 
vital legislative roll call hammered away upon a slow- 
changing public mind to the devoted, patriotic end 
that roads, schools, asylums, and colleges should be 
built for the progress of a great people. 

Four public figures stand out in the revolution. 
Ex-Governor Bickett championed an honest taxation 
system as the basis of State progress. Governor Mor- 
rison as the leader of the whole people spoke out 
boldly for the big bond issues when bold voices were 
imperative and decisive. R. A. Doughton, "Grand 
Old Man of the Mountains." identified his personal 
power, clear insight, and political leadership with the 
progressive good roads program. Walter Murphy, 
known to his host of loyal followers as the redoubtable 
"Pete," made the cause of youth and the unfortu- 
nates his very own. For them he maneuvered, talked, 
fought, tightened the lines, and focused the final 
issue. 

The Connor-Doughton-Bowie Bill 

The North Carolina Good Roads Association, stand- 
ing on the original foundations of Professor Joseph 
Holmes and Dr. Joseph Hyde Pratt and on the 
present efficient administration of Commissioner 
Frank Page, presented a solid front to the legis- 
lature. The sentiment stimulated by Col. T. L. Kirk- 
patrick and the Citizens' Highway Association was 
absorbed by the older and more powerful association. 
Headed by such public spirited citizens as President 
W. A. McGirt, Bennehan Cameron. Heriot Clarkson, 
John Sprunt Hill. Dr. L. B. Morse, Charles Whedbee, 
N. Buekner. IT. D. Williams. T. Lenoir Gwyn, W. C. 
Boren, and others, in co-operation with the abb 1 and 
aggressive secretaryship of Miss Hattie M. Berry, 
organizer, agitator and womanly genius of the move- 
ment, the association joined forces with the big bond 
issue ideas of Governor Morrison, the political leader- 
ship of R. A. Doughton. II. C. Connor. Jr., Tarn C. 
Bowie, W. N. Everett. R. 0. Everett, Walter Murphy, 
and L. R. Varser, of the majority party, and such 
progressive leaders of the minority as J. C. McBee, 
J. A. Hendrix, S. O. McGuire and R. A. Dewar. 
When all pooled their strength behind the fifty million 
dollar bond issue tor roads, a new chapter of inter- 
county understanding, commerce and progress was 



written into the statutory and organic life of North 
( larolina. 

State Building 

A state that thus decided to "spend millions on 
her body also voted to spend millions on her soul" as 
treasured and reflected in her schools, colleges, hos- 
pitals and asylums. To attempt to summarize this 
movement in greater State building would be an 
attempt to narrate the story of a people aflame in the 
great cause of youth and the commonwealth. It 
would, underneath and through it all, be largely a 
study in the organizing capacity, team spirit, relent- 
less energy and enthusiasm of the alumni of the Uni- 
versity and the colleges. 

From the evening of October 2. when forty-three 
alumni rushed into Chapel Hill from the ends of the 
State to face the emergency problems of dormitory 
congestion right on to the Murphy-Everett-McCoin- 
Long-Morrison compromise settlement in March the 
alumni, on fire for Alma Mater and the State, took the 
field in a campaign of information, agitation, and 
organization, and marched breast forward to a vic- 
tory that reached all the way across North Carolina. 

Greensboro Enlists for a Crusade 

In Greensboro on the night of October 11 at the 
conclusion of an enthusiastic and devoted alumni 
meeting, called by Frederick Archer and enlisted on 
the spot for a crusade for higher ediication, Presi- 
dent-elect Herbert B. Gunter appointed Charles Weill, 
Sam Dickson, C. R. Wharton, E. B. Jeffress, and C. M. 
Waynick as a committee to meet with him next morn- 
ing when the fighting nucleus of a movement was 
committed to break out in all the newspapers of North 
Carolina. This movement from its very State-wide 
public nature was to be a citizens' movement. The 
trail-blazing Greensboro News and the public spirited 
Greensboro Chamber of Commerce took to their bosoms 
this cause of the congested youth in the colleges and 
the congested insane in the jails. Under the auspices 
of the Chamber of Commerce a conference of citizens 
of the State was held at the North Carolina College on 
the night of November 12 and raised $4,500 as a 
publicity fund for telling the people the facts. Ad- 
dresses were made by Gov. Bickett, President Rond- 
thaler, J. E. Latham. Toastmaster Ireland, and others. 
The following subscribed $500 apiece: J. E. Latham, 
proponent of the fund. A. M. Scales. John Sprunl 
Hill, Clem Wright, R. G. Vaughan, E. Sternberger, 
Smith Richardson, Anonymous, and Mrs. R. J. Rey- 
nolds. An association was organized to manage this 
fund under the chairmanship of A. M. Scales whose 
very name carried its own story of integrity and altru- 
ism. The activity of the association was not only 
reflected in the splendid work of Weill, Gunter, 
Wharton, Robins and others like Elias, in Asheville, 
as they stimulated the interest of Chambers of Com- 
merce. Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs about the State, 
but also most vividly in those two stirring advertise- 
ments of Sam Dickson and A. M. Scales which ap- 
peared after Christmas and hit a million readers in 
the face from a whole page in all except one of the 
thirty-five dailies in North Carolina.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



The Alumni Break Out Everywhere 

The night following the Greensboro alumni meet- 
ing of October 11, alumni meetings as usual and 
far more than usual in numbers and consecration, 
were held to celebrate University Day. President 
Chase. Professors Bernard, L. R. Wilson, Hendei 
Patterson, Noble, Dean Bradshaw and others spoke at 
some of the meetings held all over the State to con- 
sider the facts of college congestion. Meetings were 
held in Charlotte, Dunn, Durham, Edenton, Fayette- 
ville, Gastonia, Greensboro, Hillsboro, Laurinburg, 
Lexington, Raleigh. Spindale, Spray, Tarboro, Wil- 
mington, Winston-Salem, Kinston, New Bern, Reids- 
ville, Rocky Mount, and Boone. The Hillsboro Alumni 
Association, assembled by J. C. Webb, October- 12, 
in accordance with the spirit of a small but determined 
group sent an urgent telegram of information to every 
alumni association in the State and followed this with 
a letter to 3,500 alumni shot through with urgent 
facts and signed by S. M. Gattis, J. C. Webb, T. N. 
Webb, P. ('. Collins, and W. A. Beartt. Professor 
Branson dug out the vital facts of wealth and Dr. L. 
R. Wilson in his Rocky Mount address assembled the 
facts and figures of college needs and support in such a 
masterful way that Professor Branson used it in its 
entirety in the News Letter. Business Manager 
Woollen's figures and President Chase's interpreta- 
tions in "Facts Aboul the University," Branson's 

figures of State wealth and college gestion, L. R. 

Wilson's Rocky Mounl address ami also his summary, 
"What the University is Asking For," Lenoir Cham- 
bers' review, "At Work For North Carolina," ami 
Hamilton's presidential address before the State His- 
torical and Literary Society were all rilled with vital 
information or struck keynotes of progress. Alumni 
committees of action, appointed all over the State to 
take charge of the local fields and. co-operate with the 
central chairman, took the facts to the people. 

Pioneer Assemblies of the People 

The movement passed beyond the bounds of an 
alumni movement and soon assumed the nature of a 
people's crusade. The first mass meeting of the 
people, the first of its kind in the whole history of 
higher education, was held at Wentworth. Price 
Gwynn, Jr., Luther Hodges, Win. J. Cordon, M. T. 
Smith, W. R. Dalton, W. E. Price, J. E. Holmes. Miss 
Blakeney, and others organized a public meeting of 
citizens from all over the county who met in the court- 
house in the interest of the crowded colleges of North 
Carolina and whose influence radiated back throughout 
the county. Public rallies were held in the courthouse 
of Wake, where R. B. House. J. H. Boushall, 0. J. 
Coffin (whose forthright editorials were soon to clear 
the way), Joseph Cheshire. President Riddick, II. 
M. London, C. V. York. Miss Elizabeth Kelly, and 
others promoted the cause, and in the courthouse 
of New Hanover, whei-e C. C. Covington, W. P. 
Stacy, J. G. Murphy, Marsden Bellamy, T. C. 
Wright, J. 0. Carr, Milton Calder, H. M. Solomon 
and others sponsored a quickly planned assembly 
addressed by Prof. Branson, Prof. Withers of the 
State College, Miss Laura Coit of the North Caro- 
lina College, and Prof. Wilson of the East Carolina 
Training School. 

Charlotte Covenants With Progress 

The largest single meeting of the campaign was 
held in early December in Charlotte under the stimu- 



lus of W. A. Jenkins. C. W. Tillett, Jr., H. P. Hard- 
ing, F. O. Clarkson, S. B. Alexander, M. R. Dunna- 
gan, who pounded away in The Cha lotte Observer, 
Brent Drane, who drafted the mass meeting resolu- 
tions, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Shore, Mrs. J. C. Kilgo, 
Jr., and others. Col. T. L. Kirkpatrick, Dr. C. Alphonso 
Smith, President Foust, Professor Withers and others 
made addresses. Between 500 and 1,000 representative 
people voted unanimously for a bond issue for ade- 
quate State institutions. A fund of $1,500 (Word 
Wood $500, A. -I. Draper $500, C. W. Tillett $100, 
S. B. Alexander and David Clark $101)) was raised 
by M. R. Dunnagan and C. <>. Kuester to carry the 
l'aets to the people in the county newspapers and 
thus supplement the proposed publicity of the Greens- 
boro Association. An association was formed with 
John R. Purer as treasurer and this association 
spread the educational gospel in the country regions 
of piedmont and western North Carolina. 

The Students Pass the Word to the People 
Liason was established between the student bodies 
of the University, the North Carolina College, the 
State College, ami the Training Schools. The student 
body of the University, under the leadership of the 
Campus Cabinel Committee, composed of .John Kerr, 
Chairman, T. C. Taylor, W. R. Berryhill, C. Holding, 
B. C. Brown, W. 11. Bobbitt, Boyd Harden, and R. 
L. Thompson, in a mass meeting 10(1(1 strong adopted 
a resolution of information introduced by E. E. 
Rives and sent it to the people of the State. Chair- 
man John Kerr arranged for an inter-collegiate stu- 
dent committee and from a session in Raleigh issued 
a clearcul statemenl to tic people. John Kerr, R 
L. Thompson, B. ('. Brown, treasurer for the com- 
mittee, raised around $300 from students and out- 
of-state alumni to pay for the expense of the student 
campaign. Dan ((rant, editor-in-chief of the Tar 
Heel, got out a special edition of the Tar Heel, 
and sent to every alumnus a copy with its lively 
pictures and stories of congestion. John Kerr spoke 
before a district meeting held in Greensboro of dele- 
gates from parent-teachers associations in the Pied- 
mont section and also before the Stale Teachers' 
Assembly held in Asheville during the Thanksgiving 
holidays. Tyre C. Taylor, editor-in-chief of the Caro- 
lina Magazine, published a special edition of the 
azine and sent a copy to every member of the 
legislature. Philip Hettleman, business manager, ran 
a half dozen half-page advertisements in the Tar 
Ifiil which were paid for by local business firms and 
which called upon the students to write to the home- 
folks to ask them to express their sentiments to mem- 
bers of the legislature. The intercollegiate student 
committee, according to a tentative plan of Mr. David 
Clark of Charlotte, arranged for and carried through 
a state-wide canvass by counties during the Christmas 
holidays. John Kerr and B. C. Brown, in the name 
of the intercollegiate student committee, sent out a 
letter to the president of each senior class in the high 
schools, emphasizing the relation of the high school 
students to dormitory congestion in the colleges and 
asking them to knock at doors of the legislature. Like- 
wise, the valiant committee at the North Carolina Col- 

I reached vitally the high school students all over 

the Stab 1 . Thus, to petitions from civic clubs all over 
the State were added an avalanche of petitions from 
senior classes in the high schools now up in arms over 
the congestion which they faced as applicants for ad- 
mission into the crowded colleges. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

Christmas Mobilization 

The movement, gathering momentum each passing 
week, was giv punch by the score and more 

,m'\ alumni, intercollegiate, and citizen meet- 
i ; held during the Chrisl 3 holidays. President 
Chase, Professors Bernard, L. R. Wilson, Noble, 
Patterson. Branson it, Carroll, and others spoke 

at one or another of these mei tings, sometimes in con- 
junction with representatives of the State College, 

NTortb Carolina Coll !ge, and the Eas1 Carolina 
Training School. Meetings were held in Lenoir, 
Rutherfordton, Rockingham, Madison, Hertford, Lex- 
ington, Gastonia, Sanford, Statesville, Oxford, Mon- 
Bern, Salisbury, Winston-Salem, Kinston, 
Asheville, .Marion. Clinton, Greensboro, Concord, 
Goldsboro Burlington, Carthage, and Lincolnton 
during the holidays an I in oilier towns after the holi- 
days. 

Broadsides! Advertisements! Resolutions! 

At this time appeared R. D. W. Connor's three 

broadsides in C ig dailies on the educational 

crisis and. North Carolina's ability to meet it — clear. 

ight-from-thc-shoulder and convincing. The time 

was nay. ; of the Dickson-Scales whole 

page advertisements in the thirty-four dailies I ■ put 
the State agog with the glaring facts of dormitory 
congestion and classified numbers denied admission by 
the colleges. The n m Asheville to Wil- 

mington hammered away on the facts and figures. The 
Charlotte Observer editorially analyzed the meaning 
of the overlapping 2 udents turned away and 

interpreted the reducible Sgures as human symbols of 
an irrepressible crisii maximum consider- 

ation of the minimum millions." The first adver- 
tisement was followed in a week by a half-page 
a.!\ ent in the thirty-four dailies, graphic with 

tlv Bransonian-Dickson-Scales pronouncement of 
North Carolina's < ealth and ability to carry on great 
State enterprises. In the midst of the popular effect 
of these astounding figures of the congestion of the 
colleges aid the wealth of the State, strategic towns 
were stumped from the mountains to the sea and 
a number of alumni meetings and public assem 
blies definitely passed resolutions and took to tic 
streets and woods for a twenty million dollar bond 
issue for Stat- institutions. At Lenoir under the spur 
of Horace Sisk and T. B. Story resolutions for the 
nty millions for institutions was joined with fifty 
million dollars for roads and at Oxford the twenty 
millions for State institutions was joined by Guy 
Phillips and Ben Lassiter with seventy-five thousand 
for tin' local high school. Both resolutions went 
through with a bane. 

Trustees Vote and Alumni Draw the Line 

As 1) ruber closed President Chase submitted the 

six-year University program to the trustees who 
adopted the resolution of Major John W. Graham to 
present the whole program to the legislature. Then 
in January came the report of the Stat" budgel com- 
mission which cut the six-year pilau of the Slate educa- 
tional and benevolent institutions to two years and 
the twenty million dollars to less than live. The 
line of battle was drawn when the presidents of the 
alumni associations of the University of North Caro- 
lina, ' R. D. W. Connor), X. C. College for Women. 

(Miss Laura ''nit .. State Coll C V. York i, ami 

East Carolina Training School, (Miss J. Dorsetl I, is- 
sued their joint statement to the people and sent their 



memorial to the legislature calling for the whole six- 
year program. The trustees met again and united 
back of the aggressive stand of such clear thinking 
and hard hitting champions as Walter Murphy, C. 
A. Jonas, W. R. Dalton, and W. F. Taylor, the 
further service of all of whom was to be manifold for 
the six-year program. A committee composed of 
Claudius Dockery, chairman, -T. Bryan Grimes, and 
J. S. Manning was appointed to join President Chase 
in presenting the case to the appropriations committee. 
Brent Drane as a building engineer re-enforced the 
solidity of Business Manager Woollen's figures and 
President Chase's able and clear presentation to the 
committee. The fight had come to a head. 

The State-Wide Organization 

The skeleton State organization which had gradually 
been developed since early October was now rounded 
out and definitely consolidated in the central chair- 
man, in three capacities as chairman of the central 
publicity committee (besides the chairman, composed 
of Lenoir Chambers. W. S. Bernard, E. R. Rankin, 
L. P. Wilson. E. C. Branson, .F. F. Bradshaw, and E. 
W. Knight, appointed by President Chase), and as 
chairman of an informal alignment of 3,500 alumni, 
and as central chairman of a State-wide organization 
of fighting groups, whose State contacts had gradually 
widened from alumni units to citizen units. Fighting 
"•roups of alumni and citizens were organized formally 
or informally in practically every county in North 
Carolina, (her one hundred men had early rushed 
forward to accept the responsibility for fighting 
groups in more than one hundred county seats and 
strategic towns of the State. Alumni and friends, 
through the efficient treasurership of Edgar Ralph 
Rankin, the alumni-encyclopedist, put up $527 dollars 
to pay for the expenses of stationery, postage, teh - 
grams, and stenographic work of the central chair- 
man. Radiating centers of information, agitation, and 
organization were in circuit all over the State. A 
program of six battle points was adopted by the fight- 
ing groups in the State. The local fighting groups 
joined forces witli the local Women's Club, the Par- 
ent-Teacher Association, the Junior Order of Ameri- 
can Mechanics, the Rotary Club, the Kiwanis Club, 
the < lhamber of Commerce, the American Legion, high 
school classes, and all the public, civic and progressive 
groups of each locality in backing up the educational 
and benevolent building program. 

Skirmishers On the Line 

Tn Lenoir County for example Eli Perry and com- 

initti rganized a county-wide unit of thirty pivot 

men. Lindsay Warren raised the standard near the 
Pamlico Sound. Frank Winslow and group organized 
a whole town. Foy Roberson was the organizing 
center of Durham ami J. Cheshire Webb, of Orange. 
One Charlotte fighting unit of which C. W. Tillett, 
Jr., was chairman, composed of I- 1 . 0. Clarkson, Mrs. 
C. C. Hook, and Mrs. Joseph Garibaldi, reached 882 
councils and clubs represent in"' a membership of about 
60,000 citizens in the towns and countrysides of North 
Carolina. The Gwynn-Dalton-Smith-Hodges group 
held meetings in four towns of one county and were 
backed by every civic organization in tic county.

A. B. Justice, and nearly a hundred other key-men in 
their hundred centers of personal influence and con- 
solidated group activity linked the aroused opinion of 
the people to the cause of congested youth in the col- 
leges. Of the more than a hundred not listed above a 
young man in accepting the responsibility for a moun- 
tain county did not organize a proposed fighting 
group, and his town was without a Rotary Club, a 
Kiwanis Club, and a Parent-Teacher Association, etc. 
The local press was doubtful about big bond issues for 
the state institutions. Undaunted he takes to the 
streets and makes a campaign of personal evangelism 
and wins the solid citizens to his cause. The faith of 
Raymond Chatham — there comes out his name after 
all — and of scores of others unnamed with their 
characteristic activity and incidents is typical of the 
University spirit. 

Three thousand five hundred alumni more or less 
on the firing line now in large numbers definitely took 
up the proposed six battle points for letter writing 
by citizens, resolutions by civic organizations, peti- 
tions, telegrams, newspaper letters, and other demon- 
strations of public opinion for youth and North 
Carolina. 

A People in Arms 

In two weeks time the three score and more chapters 
of the Junior Order of American Mechanics and over 
ten thousand members catching the enthusiasm of 
their fellow member, Francis 0. Clarkson, and State 
Councillor, Cobb, had adopted vigorous resolutions for 
the twenty million dollar program. The chairman 
of the educational committee of Scottish Rite Masons, 
Thomas J. Harkins, was in active touch with 5,300 
thirty-second degree Masons and had acquainted them 
with their concern in the movement. The president 
of the Federation of Women's Clubs, Mrs. Charles C. 
Hook, and Miss Mary Petty, chairman of the educa- 
tional eommittc f the Federated Clubs, presented the 

cause to 172 clubs in North Carolina. The president 
of the State Association of Parent-Teacher Associa- 
tions, Mrs. Joseph Garibaldi, in co-operation with 
Mrs. A. B. Justice and Mrs. David S. Yates of the 
Charlotte Asociation, called all associations into action 
back of the six-year building program. Ministers of 
the gospel. Baptist. Methodist, Moravian, Presby- 
terian, Episcopal, Christian and Lutheran and leaders 
of the Friends, declared for the large building plan. 
Public school superintendents, county and city, from 
Polk to Craven recognized the vital relation between 
public school progress, and the building plans of the 
colleges. All the while Lenoir Chambers from Chapel 
Hill and Sam Dickson from Greensboro kept sending 
out vital and lively news-stories of college congestion 
and needs to all the newspapers in the State. Into 
the minds of the people already vivid with the facts 



and figures of Branson, L. R. Wilson, Dickson, and 
Chambers, the personal report of Mr. Paul Whitloek 
on University congestion and outworn equipment came 
with re-enforced power. The fighting groups pressed 
the fight to the second line. Letters from citizens by 
the hundreds, resolutions from organizations by the 
scores, and petitions from upward of a hundred high 
school classes poured into Raleigh in continuous 
streams that more buildings be built for the insane 
now in the jails and for the boys and girls now con- 
gested in or kept out of the colleges of North Carolina. 
To this end North Carolina was speaking from cross 
roads and busy streets. 

The Mass Movement and the Public Hearing 

Then the climax. A. M. Scales, Director, in the 
name of the Citizens Association for the Promotion of 
Education, sent out a call to the citizens of the State 
to join him in a public hearing before a joint session 
of the finance and appropriations committees in Ra- 
leigh, Wednesday evening, February 23. His call 
was followed by a call from Charles Weill and Mar- 
maduke Robins to Chambers of Commerce, Kiwanis 
and Rotary Clubs. A call was issued by the central 
chairman to 3,500 University alumni and to the 
organizers of the fighting groups in the counties of 
the State. Miss Laura Coit, president, and Miss 
Ethel C. Bollinger, secretary of North Carolina Col- 
lege Alumnae Association, both enthusiastic and in- 
defatigable in activity and organization, who had 
been passing '-'the six battle points" to thousands 
of alumnae in the State now sounded the assembly 
call to these leading women. Mrs. Hook and Miss 
Petty gave notice to the women's clubs, Thomas 
J. Harkins to the Scottish Rite Masons, Francis 
O. Clarkson to 700 Councils of the Junior Order 
of American Mechanics, and Mrs. Joseph Gari- 
baldi to the Parent-Teachers Associations of the State. 
Five hundred citizens, men and women, answered the 
rallying calls from all over the State. At Asheville, 
Charlotte, Greensboro, Durham, they mobilized and 
from eastern points. they came to join the chorus of 
faith and progress. P. H. Gwynn, Sr., from near 
the Virginia line brought most of his family to the 
demonstration. Another man wired that though he 
was sick in bed he would come if the word came 
back for him to come. Mrs. Hook and R. R. Williams 
eloquently voiced the petitions of the crusaders and 
Scales revealed himself in his cpjiet, effective way 
as a master of public assembly and petition and his 
chosen and impromptu speakers represented not only 
the extent of North Carolina but also the vigor and 
variety of North Carolina life — wealth, civic clubs, 
youth and age, labor and professions, public schools 
and denominational colleges, fraternal organizations, 
■parents and teachers and militant womanhood. They 
spoke not only in a cause but also from personal 
experiences in the field in storming the strong-points 
of indifference and experience. President Rondthaler 
said his happy words in a brief, final way. President 
Hobgood spoke as president of a denominational 
college, T. J. Harkins for the educational committee 
of the Scottish Rite Masons, Dr. Pegram for the Junior 
Order of American Mechanics, Mrs. Wiley Swift for 
the State Parent-Teachers Association, C. B. Riddle, 
of the Burlington Kiwanis. as an editor of a church 
paper, J. J. Wells for the Kiwanis Club, Stahle Linn 
for self-help students, J. E. Latham for the non- 
college men, and Newcomb for the public school 
children. They spoke from a background of power.

Seven of the speakers. Mrs. C. C. Hook, R, R. Wil- 
liams, Dorman Thompson, C. C. Covington, C. R. 
Wharton, Walter Small. J. R. Purser, and T. J. 
Harkins, had strategic connections of leadership with 
''the fighting groups deployed from the mountains 
to the sea." 

The Decisive Fight 

The five hundred citizens said the say of their 
dynamic presence and many stole away in the special 
sleepers during the night. Sunday morning they read 
that the appropriations committee had added three 
quarters of a million to the budget commission's 
recommendations which meant even with this increase 
that several of the institutions would In' unable to 
meet even the present congestion. Monday morning 
telegrams poured into Raleigh by the hundreds. Wo- 
men's clubs, parent-teacher associations. American 
Mechanics, .Masons, chambers of commerce, Kiwanians, 
Rotarians, alumni, and fighting groups of leading 
citizens, became aroused over night. The Citizens' 
Bill for the six-year program magnificently cham- 
pioned by Walter Murphy, progressive warrior of the 
legislature, seconded in the house by Clem Wright, 
and brilliantly propounded in the senate by.Lunsford 
Long, and seconded by -1. Elmer Long, missed passing 
in the upper house by only one vote. Several nega- 
tive votes were wavering. At this juncture Governor 
Morrison called in Walter Murphy, Lunsford Long, 
W. N. Everett, and R. S. McCoin and asked them to 
come to a patriotic understanding for the progress 
of the State. In this conference at the instance of 
Representative Murphy a million dollars was further 
added to the building program with the under- 
standing as proposed by the Governor that if the 
institutions wisely builded and administered, the 
whole program would lie carried through. The Senate 
and House with only one dissenting vote adopted 
at once the Morrison-Murphy-Long-McOoin-Everett- 
Doughton-Varser compromise bill for upwards of 
seven million dollars for the permanent upbuilding 
of State institutions plus adequate maintenance funds. 
The University is to receive $1,490,000 for buildings 
and equipment and $925,000 for total maintenance 
during the next two years. Thus was won a perma- 
nent victory for youth, the unfortunates, and North 
( larolina. 

The Spirit of the Fighters 

To call the roll of the men and women who back 
home won this epochal fight would be a roll call of 
not only hundreds but thousands of citizens of the 
State. It would he a tale of the faith, idealism, en- 
thusiasm, and energy of men and women all over 
North Carolina who took no counsel of reaction, hard 
times, and the faint of heart but rather who set the 
sights of their figures high and brooked no suggestion 
of lowered figures or short-sighted expediency. Hav- 
ing enlisted for a greal cause they asked nothing 
for themselves hut the chance to fight, and they fought 
on and gathered into their assaulting waves the cau- 
tious, the indifferent, and the hostile until a whole 
people acclaimed the final victory. A hundred cen- 
ters shared in the fun of the fight. More than one 
hundred geographically strategic men linked the Slate. 
fighting group to fighting group, in the mood of 
heroism and in the cause of youth and benevolence. 

'flic crusade of these fighters is an expression of 
the unselfish valor of the human spirit. To tell their 
story would lie to tell the story of hundreds of men 
and women who stirred up cities, (owns, and villages 



and organized counties, who effaced themselves in the 
movement and consecrated their friendship, their or- 
ganizations, and all their contacts to the cause. 

The Cause, Its Background of Soundness 

'I'he cause was full worthy of their crusading spirit 
and rang true with the tones and traditions of a cen- 
tury. All who had done well their day's work in 
t he ancient and young instil ut ions of the State entered 
the tight in spiritual power. The evangelism of Alder- 
man, Aycock, Mclver, Moses. Noble, Joyner, Brooks, 
and others issued in the congestion of the colleges. 
The University administrative economy of Battle, 
Winston, Alderman. Venable, and her latest lamented 
leader — in whose name and spirit hundreds rallied to 
the standard of her present chief — and the figures 
proved, studied, revised, and ably mastered by Busi- 
ness Manager Woollen and President Chase, all com- 
liineil in their essential values of administrative integ- 
rity and business economy to give soundness to the 
I'niversity's program. Presidents Foust, Wright and 
Kiddick in their different ways of administrative 
ability solidified the case of the colleges. 

The Service of the Budget Commission 

It is altogether fitting to recognize here the value 
and service of the State Budget Commission which in 
its difficult and thankless task was insistent upon 
sound bookkeeping, economy, and solid figures. The 
( lommisson made mistakes no doubt but had the vision 
to appreciate the fact that adequate maintenance 
funds are the heart of an institution's life. On tin' 
basis of their recognition vital increases were later 
made in the maintenance funds of most of the insti- 
tutions. Governor Bickett, and Messrs. Doughton, 
Everett, Gray, Holderness, McCoin and Varser went 
as far as they thought the people would stand for 
and no doubt rejoice now in the fact that a ground- 
swell of the people transformed their maximum 
figures into the minimum figures of a campaign 
whose militant guns were trained upon twenty million 
dollars for a six-year building program. Messrs. 
Gray, Holderness and Everett, together with Walter 
Murphy, Clem Wright and Lindsay Warren, had 
four years ago in response to the vision of President 
E. K. Graham, planned and put through a three 
million dollar bond issue for State institutions. 

Influence of Master Teachers 

Perhaps as fundamental in the movement as the 
spirit and influence of Alma Mater's sons who gathered 
of her life and went their way of achievement and 
service in the State has been the tempered character, 
patient research, thinking, and spirit of her master 
teachers who sent them forth and have inspired col- 
lege generations of men passing this way "plastic to 
their molding. 

The Presidents 

To President Chase, whose wisdom and devotion, 
whose constant and sweet reasonableness of character 
and purpose were felt on all sides, the faculty, stu- 
dents, alumni and citizens stand committed to hold 
up his hands in the great responsibility intrusted to 
his keeping and administration. President Foust, 
with an efficiently administered college and a loyal 
body of alumnae to give him inspiration ami strength : 
President Riddick, the splendid service of whose col- 
lege and its alumni reach the very foundations of the 
State's life; and President Wright, able executive of 
an institution telling its tine story in the lite of the 



234 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



public scl Is of Eas1 Carolina, all will find vindica- 
tion for their figures and their fight in the progress of 
the State. The colleges through the alumni put it up 
to the people. The people through the legislature 
have now put it up to the colleges. 

The Unlisted Soldiers 

In closing the simple narrative, Mr. Editor, which 
you have asked to be written of the work and the 
workers, it is hoped that all those who worked and 
prayed and fought for a greater commonwealth will 
feel especially now thai the University reaches out 
and holds them tight to her great heart. What was 
the fun of service to them is the inspiration of life 
to her. They are in large numbers unnamed in this 
story. To call their names — the forty-three who came 
to the emergency conference, the hundred and eighty- 
five who organized the State, and the hundreds of 
others who pressed the fights — would no1 add to the 
durable satisfaction that will always he theirs. For 
the long line of unnamed soldiers who entered into 
the victory, the University and the State can hut 
"thank God and take courage" as they set their 
hands to the work of a new day.

HARVARD-TECH CLUB HOLDS BANQUET 

Robert II. W. Welch, Jr., secretary of the Harvard- 
Tech Alumni Asociation, sends The Review the fol- 
lowing account of a rousing banquet held recently by 
this association in Boston: 

The Harvard-Technology North Carolina Club held 
its first dinner of the year at the Parker House, 
Boston, Friday night, February 25. Hoke Black, 
'16, president of the club, acted as toastmaster. The 
other alumni and former teachers present were: Pro- 
fessor X. w. Walker id' the department of education; 
Professor D. II. Baeot, formerly of the deparl ien1 
of history; R. P. Crouse, Robert Well!;. Jr., E. L. 
Mackie, W. T. Polk, Samuel Ervin, Albert Coates, 



Marion Ross, B. II. Thomas, T. C. Wolfe, Samuel 
Fisher, and Holmes Herty. 

After a dinner which, thanks to the care of the 
president, was very enjoyable, officers for next year 
were elected. R. F. Crouse, '16, was chosen president, 
and W. T. Polk, 'IS. secretary-treasurer. Then several 
members of the club responded by short talks to in- 
vitations to speak. 

Professor Walker, though speaking only a very few 
minutes, brought out vividly the fallacy of many 
North Carolinians, as evidenced by the attitude of 
many representatives in the legislature, in assuming 
that appropriations for the University, as well as 
donations to other educational institutions, were 
primarily for tin 1 vend of the institutions the. ns 'Ives. 
He pointed out that the basic principle of de nocracy 
is opportunity; that educational opportunity is the 
greatesl debl of a state to its people; that the objed 
of the University is to do its utmost to offer this op- 
portunity to the youth of the State: and that money 
appropriated to help it is that much spent primarily 
for the benefit of the State, and only secondarily for 
the institution itself. 

Hoke Black forcefully called attention to the small 
percentage of students at "The Hill" from outside 
the State. Admitting that the University's main 
object should be to train young men and women of 
North Carolina, he urged that nevertheless a greater 
effort should be made to attract students from out- 
side the State, especially from the South; first, be- 
cause Carolina was in a position to make itself a 
Southern university, and secondly, because a more 
i os nopolitan student body would have a broadening 
influence and would materially benefit the students 
from North "Carolina itself. 

President Black further commented on the fact 
that Carolina did not sufficiently advertise itself in 
other states through making known its leadership in 
more or less collateral activities; through evidencing 
a just pride in its success in debating; through 
properly claiming the honor for the big men it has 
produced; and in various other ways. He alluded 
to his own surprise at having learned some time ago 
that Thomas Hart Benton, senator from .Missouri 
during the Clay-Calhoun- Webster period of our his-, 
tory, had been a student of the University of North 
( larolina. 

After a controversy as to whether Zebulon Laird 
Vance was not a greater man than Thomas Hart Ben- 
ton, in which dispute Senator Vance was ably sup- 
ported by Samuel Ervin. had been settled, shelved, 
or in some indecisive way disposed of, Albert Coates 
entertained the club while the smokers were finishing 
their cigars. The hilarity occasioned having made it 
r\rj[- that any attempt to be serious again would be 
futile; and it being impossible to sing; "I'm a Tar 
Heel Born" on account of the proximity of a police 
station, the club adjourned with a revived recollec- 
tion in the mind of each member of oleasant days at 
"The Hill." 



Education for Citizenship is the title of a 30-page 
monograph prepared by Drs. J. G. del;. Hamilton 
and E. W. Knight, of the University, and recently 
published by (lie U. S. War Department. The pub- 
lication contains the conclusions of Drs. Hamilton and 
hi based on close observation for several months, 
concerning the principles and practices of Army ed- 
ucation as now conducted by the War Department.

ALUMNI WILL STAGE BIG REUNIONS 



Alumni reunions will bold the of the stage at 

commencement. Tuesday, June 14, Alumni Da 
the Old Grad's very own. This day is devoted to 

youthful friends and associations, and nothing else 
matters. Alumni feasts, meetings, parades, minstrels, 
baby shows, circuses and athletic contests will be 
among the star features. The class of '11 lias promised 
to bring on a band of wind instruments, Led alter- 
nately by -lack Walters and Bill Ellis, and it has 
also promised, according. to George Graham, chief 
publicity agent, to bring on a ministerial band led by 
J. G. Walker. 

Ben ('one asserts that '20. the baby reunion class, 
will surely this time "put the jazz in the jamboree. 
No elass. net even the famous '11, vow all together 
Francis Clarkson, Bill Umstead, Roy Homewood, and 
Francis Bradshaw, will "put anything over" on '16. 
Dr. Gerald Murphy warns that any '01 man not 
reporting at his reunion will be "read out in meeting" 
as mil having the price of a ticket or oven a Lizzie 
to bring him. For '91, Shepard Bryan, Drew Patter- 
son, and Dr. Charlie Mangum, stand sponsor. The 
idass of '06 through Walter Love plans to set a new 
high record, tore and aft. for fifteen year come-backs. 
The class of '96, celebrating its quarter-century re- 
union, emphatically denies that it belongs with the 
"old one-,," and to prove that with '96 the spirit of 
youth is perpetual, it will put out a baseball team and 
broadcast a challenge! Deo. Stephens heads the re- 
union committee of this class. 

The lawyers, judges, teachers, preachers, college 
presidents, manufacturers, hankers, and farmers, who 
make up the personnel of '81, will renew their youth 
and their life-time affiliation with Alma Mater on 
Alumni Day. Among the members of the reunion 
committee of this elass are: Dr. J. Y. Joyner, Judge 
W. J. Adams. Judge J. D. Murphy, Dr.']!. P. Bell, 
J.Alton Melver. Col. Leroy Springs, Dr. H. B. Battle. 
A. Nixon, and John M. Walker. The class of 71 
eelebrates its half-century reunion with Dr. Hannis 
Taylor chairman] of the reunion committee. The 
famous Confederate class of '61 celebrates its sixtieth 
year reunion with Major ('has. M. Stedman chairman 
of the reunion committee. Alumni Day will take on 
a new vigor a1 commencement of 1921. 

"Naughty Ones" 

The class of '01, which thrust itself on an unsus- 
pecting world a score of years ago, will celebrate on 
Alumni Day, June 14, its twentieth year reunii 

This is an assembly call to every '01 man and he 
must answer to his name on Alumni Day. We will 
have a jolly good time, ami if you are no1 there you 

will he classed as qo1 having the price of a ticket 

or qo1 evi o a " Lizzie" to bring 3 ou! 

A get-tog deal and a round table discus, ion 

are an a cut features planned. Be 

prepared io divulge your succes es and your failures 
for the past twenty years. —J. G. Murphy, ^class sec-

The Reunion of '91 
Shepard Bryan, presidenl of the class of 1891, 
semis from Atlanta the following cat] ,,, his class- 
mates to meet ill ( Impel Hill at 1 Ic | cient 

period for the celebration of the thirtieth year re- 
union of the class : 

A reunion of the class of 1891 will he held at the 

commencement of 1921 — the day of the reunion being 
Tuesday, June 1 I. 1921. 



Every man who was a I any time a member of the 
class of 1891, from its birth in August, LSS7. imtil 
its graduation in June, 1891, is expected al this re- 
union. 

I hope that the attendance will be large. I have 
heard from many members of the class wiio will be 
present. 

From 1891 to 1921 is a big span in the history of 
the world. Many tremendous events have happened 
and enormous changes have taken place, but in all 
this time there has been, I believe, one changeless and 
everlasting tiling — the love of the members of the 
class of 1891 for each other and for their Alma Mater. 
Be sure to come ! 

Will Bring on the Jazz 

Dear Classmate: 

The class of 1920 has its first reunion in June, com- 
mencement of 1!I21 ! Have you ever thought about 
going back to the "Hill" along with your old friends.' 
Well your chance is coming, and it will be here soon. 

Begin by making your plans now; make that boss 
turn you loose from June 12th through the loth. By 
all means come for the big class hanipiel which will be 
uncorked Monday night, June 13th. 

"Skinner" Kitlrell will give you further details 
in a few days, while Bill Andrews is working his head 
off on the "Hill" to put pep into our gathering. 

We arc going to pull some stunts too; if you have 
any suggestions, shoot them in to "Skinner" at Hen- 
derson, N. C. — no address needed. It 's up to us (1920) 
this year to put the "jazz in the jamboree," at the 
alumni meeting. Don't forget to mark June 13 
on your calendar. 

Here's hoping to see you under the well this Spring. 
Yours for the reunion,

To Members of '16 

Wm. B. Umstead, of Kinston, chairman of the re- 
union committee of his class, sends the following let- 
ter to Carolina men of 1916: 

Our Alma Mater in the five years during which we 
have been away has grown ami expanded as few 
educational institutions have ever done. This growth 
and expansion has been healthy and wholesome. With 
this growth and expansion the Carolina spirit of ser- 
vice to the State has been commensurate. The State 
of necessity has made huge demands upon the Univer- 
sity. The University has met the challenge, even unto 
the last ounce of her strength, and the last inch of her 
capacity. Jusl as tin. State needs and calls the Uni- 
versity, just so does the dear old University need and 
call to each and every one of her loyal sons. We can- 
cel serve whole-heartedly unless we go back there 

asionally and renew thai spark of loyalty which 

binds every Carolina man to the University and the 
I niver ity to the State. 

This year al com em our class of 1916 has 

its live year reunion. Lei us go back at that time. 
Lei " s go hack and renew our loyally; let us go back 
and drink at the fountain of lis spirit; let us go back 
and make tighter those bonds of friendship which are 
near and dear to us; let us go hack and make ours 
the greatesl of all reunions, and thereby serve the 
State, the University and ourselves.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Sayings of Sixteen 

Win. B. Umstead, Kinston : I am sending a cir- 
cular letter to print today and it should be out in 
ten days. 

R. B. House, Raleigh: How about "We Deliver" 
as the central idea ? 100 per cent attendance, all class 
pledges fulfilled to date, etc. 

A. Thurman Castelloe, Cambridge, Mass. : I have 
not been on the Hill since May '16, — too bad. I 
enclose check. 

B. F. Auld, Denver Col.: Here's the money order. 
L. C. Hall, Sylva : I have not received notice of 

notes due. If you will please notify me at once, will 
be glad to send check. 

J. II. Allred, Mt. Airy: I think I can take the prize 
as a bald-headed man. I intend to come to the re- 
union. Expect to have a grand and glorious time. 
Reserve a place for me at the banquet. 

J. Roy Moore, Lenoir: I would like to know just 
how much I owe on our class assessment which was 
to be paid at the end of five years. I do hope we can 
all be there next commencement and have the very 
best reunion that any class has ever had, for 1916 
can do it. 

Gardner Hudson, Winston-Salem : Since we last saw- 
each other numerous changes have taken place in me. 
I am rapidly developing a shining pate, already have 
a very high forehead and partake of even the most 
frivolous of social pleasures, such as dancing. Frank 
Hackler is rather stretching his vest buttons, but will 
do nothing to check the expansion. Our offices are 
on the same floor of this building. 

A. V. Anderson, Wilson: I hope I can be present 
for the roll call when our class meets again on the 
Hill this Spring. If possible I shall be there — and 
ready for "anything and something else." Sam 
Pike is living here noWj. and is located just across 
the street from me. He has a fine boy. Victor Bailey 
is teaching school at Black Creek. 

R. M. Homewood, Durham : Enclosed find check for 
$12. I will be on the Hill and will be sure that 1911 
does not put anything over on us. As far as getting 
the tent is concerned I am sure we can get that, and 
as for the rest, Bob Page, Meb Long and I are still on 
llie map. 

Carlyle Morris, Philadelphia, Pa. : Best wishes to 
the fairest and squarest place I guess we could find, 
namely the University of North Carolina. We have a 
good many of the old boys up here ; Thorp, Darden, 
and myself from '16. We are with you in heart and 
for any service we may be able to render, you only 
have to command us. I am sending you check to 
cover notes. Mail me any news of the class. 

Moses Shapiro, Winston-Salem: So there are big 
doings planned for the reunion. I shall certainly be 
there. I am enclosing cheek. Gardner Hudson will 
have to answer for himself. These corporation lawyers 
are such that it is hard to find out just what they are 
doing. Frank Hackler is here and like yours truly 
bucking the winds of chance, while Bob Vaughn holds 
down a chair in the Court House as auditor. Here's 
hoping to see you in June. 



Chapel Hill high school won the basketball cham- 
pionship of North Carolina by defeating Charlotte, 
western champions, in the final game of a thrilling 
scries played in Bynum Gymnasium. Forty-four 
high schools competed in the contest this .year and five 
of the final games were played at the University. 



SPRING ATHLETIC PROGRAMS 

The Review went to press on the eve of the opening 
of both the baseball and track season. The varsity 
baseball squad under the direction of Coach W. McK. 
Fetzer, the freshman squad under Coach Fred Pat- 
terson, the track squad under Coach Kent Brown, 
all working regularly since late in February, were 
ready for their first contests. 

At that time it appeared probable that the baseball 
team would include the following men : catchers, Roy 
Morris and McGee ; pitchers, Captain Lawrence Wil- 
son and Llewelj-n, Bryson, and Roseman, a find of 
Fetzer 's ; infielders, Spruill or Shirley at first, McLean 
at second, McDonald at short, and Fred Morris or 
Lowe at third ; outfielders, Sweetman, with the other 
two positions probably to be covered by Shirley or 
Lowe, if those two players were not used in the in- 
field or by Wilson and Llewelyn, when they were not 
in the box, and possibly Tenney. 

Of these men Wilson, Llewelyn, Lowe, McLean, and 
Sweetman are from last year's varsity. Roy and Fred 
Morris, Shirley, McDonald, McGee and Bryson are 
from last year's freshman team. Spruill played on the 
1917 freshman team, and Tenney has been on the 
squad for several years. 

Early practice indicated a strong team. In the 
opening game with Davidson played at Winston- 
Salem on Easter Monday, Carolina won by the score 
of 7 to 3. The schedule arranged by Manager William 
H. Rufnn is as follows: 

March 23 — New York University at Chapel Hill. 

March 28 — Davidson at Winston-Salem. 

March 31 — State College at Chapel Hill. 

April 2 — Virginia at Charlottesville. 

April 4 — Washington and Lee at Lexington. 

April 7 — Maryland at Chapel Hill. 

April 8— Florida at Chapel Hill. 

April 9 — Wake Forest at Wake Forest. 

April 12 — Davidson at Chapel Hill. 

April 16— Trinity at Chapel Hill. 

April 21— Guilford at Chapel Hill. 

April 23 — Virginia at Greensboro. 

April 2.5 — Virginia at Chapel Hill. 

April 30— State College at Raleigh. 

May 2 — Georgetown at Washington. 

May 3 — Maryland at College Park, Md. 

May 4 — Fordham at New York. 

May .j — New York University at New York. 

May 6 — College of City of New York at New York. 

May 7 — Swarthmore at Swarthmore. 

May 9 — V. M. I. at Lexington. 

May 12— Wake Forest at Chape] Hill. 

May 14 — Trinity at Durham. 

Track Schedule Announced 

Manager A. L. Purrington has announced the fol- 
lowing track schedule: 

April 11 — Dual meet with Trinity at Durham. 
April 16 — Dual meet with South Carolina at Chapel Hill. 
April 23 — Triangular meet with Virginia and V. M. I. at 
Charlottesville. 

May 7 — State meet at Chapel Hill. 

May 15 — South Atlantic meet at Baltimore.

CAROLINA JOINS SOUTHERN CONFERENCE 



By unanimous vote of the faculty, March 18, the 
University joined the Southern Intercollegiate Con- 
ference and will henceforth he a member of this new 
athletic association of most of the larger institutions 
of the South, which, under the strictest regulations of 
all the American conferences will seek to lift the 
whole tone of Southern athletics. 

Previous to the faculty action, which was the tinal 
step, the question of the University's joining the con- 
ference had been endorsed by the faculty committee 
on athletics, by The Tar Her! editorially, and by many 
of the leading athletes among the students. 

Previous even to that two members of the faculty 
committee on athletics. Dr. C. S. Mangum and Prof. 
A. H. Patterson, the latter in a meeting at Gaines- 
ville, Florida, last December, and both at a second 
meeting in Atlanta in February, had assisted ma- 
terially in organizing the new conference. 

At the Atlanta meeting delegates were present 
from the University of Alabama, Alabama Polytech- 
nic Institute (Auburn"), Clemson, Georgia Tech, Uni- 
versity of Georgia, University of Kentucky, Univer- 
sity of Tennessee, University of Maryland, Mississippi 
A." and M., University of North Carolina, North Caro- 
lina State, Tulane, University of Virginia. V P. I., 
and Washington and Lee. Representatives from 
Center College and Johns Hopkins University were 
present as visitors. 

About half the above delegates had power of final 
action and definitely joined the conference immedi- 
ately upon organization. The remaining half, like the 
University's delegates, had to submit the proposition 
to their faculties. Indications are clear, however, that 
most of the above institutions will be members, and 
possibly several other institutions, although the mem- 
bership has been limited for the present to sixteen. 

Larger Institutions Banded Together 

It will be seen that the probable membership in- 
cludes most of the larger institutions all the way from 
Maryland to New Orleans. Many of these institutions 
had previously belonged to the Southern Intercol- 
legiate Athletic Association, the well known S.I.A.A., 
and for long had been chafinp: under the control exer- 
cised in that body by the majority prroup of smaller 
southern institutions which were not ready for the 
progressive platform upon which the new conference 
rests. Other institutions, like Virginia and North 
Carolina, had belonged to a half-dead Athletic Con- 
fers of Southern State Universities. Others had 

belonged to no group. 

The new organization, which gives every indication 
of being the leading Southern group, purposes "to 
band together the larger institutions of the South 
under uniform regulations which will eliminate the 
most glaring and troublesome evils of college ath- 
letics." It has set forth the most advanced princi- 
ples that have ever been followed in the South. Many 
of these principles were taken over from the "Western 
Conference (which includes Minnesota. Wisconsin, 
Illinois. Ohio, Chicago, Indiana. Michigan, North- 
western, and others). <renerally regarded as the most 
successful athletic conference in the United States. 



Planks of the New Platform 

The basic regulations of the new conference are as 
follows : 

(1) The One Year Rule — This rule provides that 
no student shall compete in intercollegiate athletics 
until he has been in residence one year and has com- 
pleted the scholarship requirements of the institution 
in which he is a student. Freshmen and all of the 
first year men are thus prevented from membership 
on varsity teams. 

(2) The Migratory Rule — This rule provides that a 
student who has been at one institution and enters a 
second institution cannot compete in intercollegiate 
athletics until he has been in residence a year; and 
provides further that any student who has been a 
member of a varsity team at one institution can never 
be a member of a varsity team at another institution. 
' (3) The Time Rule — This rule provides that par- 
ticipation in intercollegiate athletics shall be limited 
to three years (the University previously allowed 
four) over a five-year period counting from the time 
of first matriculation. Thus all of an athlete's ac- 
tivities in intercollegiate contests must take place 
within five years after he first matriculates. 

(4) The Summer Baseball Rule — This rule pro- 
vides that "no student may accept remuneration for 
participation in any branch of sports or for services 
in connection with athletics or physical education. 
And "no student may become a member of any team 
for occasional contests until after permission has been 
obtained from the faculty committee on athletics. 
Such students who receive expenses for such oc- 
casional games must submit certified and receipted 
vouchers therefor." 

(5) The Local Self -Government Rule. — This rule 
provides that the faculty athletic committee at each 
institution will decide all cases affecting its own stu- 
dents. Thus no higher board of appeal has authority 
over each faculty committee on its own cases. Such 
a plan as this the University has had with Virginia 
and with State College. 

Besides these basic principles there are the usual 
amateur rules which are generally similar, though per- 
haps differing in small details, at all the institutions 
concerned. Other small differences will still obtain 
at different institutions, as, for example, in the scholar- 
ship rule, which each institution will settle for itself. 
Incidentally, the University's scholarship rule is one 
of the highest in the country. 

How the Rules Affect the University 

The main changes that the new regulations will 
mean in the University's athletics are as follows: 
(1) The migratory rule will prevent any student who 
has ever participated in intercollegiate athletics at 
another institution from becoming a member of a team 
at the University; hitherto such a student has become 
eligible after two quarters in residence. If a student 
has'been at another institution but has not played on 
a varsity team there, he may still become eligible at 
the University after a full year. But if he has played 
elsewhere, he can never become eligible.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



(2) The decreasing of the time in which a student 
may play from four to three years, not counting his 
playing on freshman teams; and the insistence that* 
lie do all his three years of varsity playing within 
five years after first matriculation. Hitherto the 
University has had no restriction on this matter. 

(3) The requiring of permission from the faculty 
athletic committee before a student can play summer 
baseball and the requiring of vouchers for expense 
money. 

The one year rule for freshmen the University has 
already, being, with Virginia, the first institution in 
the South to adopt it. 

Some dissent was expressed in the faculty at the 



severity of the rule preventing a student who has 
played elsewhere from ever playing at a second in- 
stitution, and also at the wording of several other 
rules. But the general opinion was that so much total 
benefit would result from becoming a member of the 
conference that it was better to waive these matters 
for the present. No such serious, wide-sweeping 
effort has ever been made by leading Southern insti- 
tutions for the betterment of athletics, the faculty 
thought, and the University properly belongs in the 
group which is seeking to elevate the general tone. 

The new rules go into effect January 1, 1922, are 
not retroactive, and present contracts stand. The 
next meeting of the conference will be next De- 
cember. 



ALUMNI OF THE FOURTH ESTATE 



By LENOIR CHAMBERS, '14 



Twenty-eight years ago, February 2:1, 18!).'i, the 
first issue of The Tar Heel appeared on the Univer- 
sity campus. 

Seventy-seven years ago, March, 1844, the first is- 
sue of The University of No. tli Carolina Magazine 
appeared on the campus. 

Both publications, intimate and vital factors in 
student and University life, have paused in their reg- 
ular race this winter to celebrate their birthdays, to 
look back over their long and honored history, and 
to pay sincere tribute to the men who in other days, 
other times, have wrought to interpret through them 
student and University thought, action, life. 

The Tar Heel in its special issue in February re- 
counted its founding by Walter Murphy, Charles 
Baskerville, and others. It traced its history through 
the succeeding years of storm and stress when campus 
affairs assumed to the editors the proportions of na- 
tional revolutions, when reporters made their custom- 
ary errors, when printers would not print, when sub- 
scribers would fuss. It followed many former editors 
in their careers to other newspapers throughout North 
Carolina and to all corners of the United States. It 
gathered together all the strength of all the years and 
swore by all the gods that it would strive this year 
to be worthy, that it would seek to improve, that it 
would not betray the trust. 

Something familial- in the ring of the words, per- 
haps, but something', none the less, real and heart- 
felt. 

So with the Magazine, which calls itself frankly 
this year The New Carolina Magazine. George W. 
.McCoy, '2:i. one of the editors, throws the light of 
the new Magazine's new interpretative spirit on the 
high spots of its history ; and the whole issue is largely 
made up of contrasting articles representing the 
thought of the early life of the University and the 
restless, turbulent thought of 1921. On' one page 
is an article written by a promising senior in the Uni- 
versity, "On the Admission of Foreigners into Of- 
fice in the United States." The author is one James 
Knox Polk; the date is 1818. On the opposite page 
is a symposium of student and faculty opinion on the 
admission of women into all the courses of the Uni- 
versity. The author is the recently elected editor-in- 
chief for next year. William E. Horner; those who 
express their opinions are 1921 debaters and athletes 
and teachers. 



The students of 1893 read in their first issue of The 
Tar Heel that "The growing demands of the Univer- 
sity have shown the need of a weekly paper. . . . 
This new venture is necessarily entered upon by the 
present board with no little trepidation, nevertheless 
with a determination to make a success which can only 
lie done through the indulgence and assistance of our 
faculty and fellow students. . . ." 

Above the first editorial they read at the top of the 
page that Charles Baskerville was editor-in-chief, that 
Walter Murphy was managing editor, that A. H. Mc- 
Fadycn was business manager, and that A. C. Ellis, 
Perrin Busbee, W. P. Wooten, and J. C. Biggs were 
editors. 

From that February day in '93 to this April the 
destinies of The Tar Heel have been guided during its 
twenty-eight years by such editors-in-chief as E. W. 
Myers, James A. Gwvn, W. A. Graham, D. B. Smith, 
Ralph II. Graves, S." S. Lamb, E. K. Graham, W. J. 
Brogden, Paul C. WhitloctP. R. D. W. Connor, Mars- 
den Bellamy, H. M. London, W. F. Bryan, White- 
head Kluttz, Brent S. Drane, J. C. B. Ehringhaus, 
N. W. Walker, Charles P. Russell, Frank McLean, 
Victor L. Stephenson, Q. S. Mills, H. B. Gunter, 
Frank P. Graham, Oscar J. Coffin, 0. W. Hyman, 
W. H. Jones, Frank Hough, L. N. Morgan, George L. 
Carrington, Lenoir Chambers, S. W. Whiting, Walter 
P. Fuller, Thomas C. Linn, Jr., W. T. Polk, C. G. 
Tennent. W. H. Stephenson, Forrest Mills, Thomas 
C. Wolfe, and the present editor-in-chief, Daniel L. 
Grant. 

The Founding of the Magazine 

For the founding of the Magazine go back to 1844 
and to Edmund DeBerry Covington, of Richmond 
County, and to his associates, Robert H. Cowan, of 
Wilmington, and Samuel F. Phillips, of Chapel Hill, 
from the Di Society, and James S. Johnson, of Hali- 
fax County, and L. C. Edwards, of Person County, 
from the Phi Society. Its history is more tempestuous 
than The Tar Heel's. Four times it has ceased pub- 
lication altogether, once in 1844, shortly after it 
started; again in 1861, after it had been running since 
1852; again in 1882, after it had been running from 
1878; and finally for a brief period in 1895. Many 
times it has undergone violent changes in policy. In 
general, however, its policy has shifted through the 
years from a conservative historical and literary jour-

publications. The Magazine has made a radical 
change in size and policy. It is now 12 x 8'j inches 
in size, is liberally illustrated, and in policy deals in 
brief and snappy fashion with leading topics of 
though! nil the campus, in the State, and in the na- 
tion. It has shown more vigor, better organization, 
keener conception of the value of presentation than 
any of its recent predecessors. A corresponding vigor 
has been shown by The Tar Heel. It has exhibited 
this year in its semi-weekly issues more of the marks 
of professional newspaper work than in many years, 
possibly more than ever before. 



Alumni in Newspaper and Publishing Business 

It is not surprising that the men who have worked 
on The Tar Heel and The Magazine should have car- 
ried the writing urge and the touch of printer's ink 
with them when they left the University. Secretary 
Rankin's office has prepared a partial list of alumni 
who are now, or have been recently, engaged in news- 
paper or magazine work, or in some form of publish- 
ing. Most of these men were connected with The Tar 
Heel or The Magazine during their college days. 

The list ranges from some of the largest and best 
known newspapers and magazines in the country to 
many of the live weeklies of North Carolina, inter- 
preting their community life and tying together the 
folks in the rural districts. It includes such men as 
Ralph H. Graves, '97, present Sunday editor of the 
New York Times, former city editor of the Xew York 
Evening Post, and one of the best known newspaper

formerly of the Times and now a free lance journalist 
with frequent contributions to The Saturday Evening 
Post, Thi Atlantic Monthly, The Metropolitan, Asia,

tional magazines. In Xew York City alone it em-

city editor of the Xew York Call (also formerly with 
the Philadelphia Public Ledger) ; Victor L. Stephen- 
son, '06, formerly of the Charlotte Observer, later with 
the Xew York Eveniiuj Post, now engaged in financial 
writing in Xew York; Q. S. Mills. '07, who before he 
died in action in the war, was an editorial writer on

BASKETBALL CLOSES SUCCESSFUL SEASON 

The basketball team played its three final games 
since the last issue of The Review. It won from Vir- 
ginia at Chapel Hill, 43 to 12. In a second game 
against State College it lost 31 to 32, playing the 
poorest basketball of the season, and in the final decid- 
ing game with Trinity it won, 55 to 18. 

By virtue of victories over Davidson, Elon, and 
Trinity the University team has been generally called 
by sporting editors the best in the State. Many per- 
sons at Chapel Hill regard it as the best team that 
has ever played at the University. 

Howard Hanby, of Wilmington, right guard, has 
been elected captain for next year. Shepard and 
Erwin will not return, but Cartwright Carmichael, 
almost unanimously regarded as the best forward in 
the South Atlantic States and picked on virtually 
every star team, and McDonald, the other forward, 
have two more .years of play, and promising material 
from the freshman squad will be available.

THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT 



The Soils and Agriculture op the Southern 
States. 339 pp. illus. maps. O. N. Y. Mac- 
millan. 1921. $3.50. 

Hugh Hammond Bennett, '00, famous right tackle 
on the football teams of '98, '99, '00, and member of 
the Bureau of Soils of the United States Department 
of Agriculture for the past twenty years, has recently 
brought out through the Macmillan Company the 
results of his soil investigations in the South under 
the title "The Soils and Agriculture of the Southern 
States." 

This volume, which Mr. Bennett trusts will be 
looked upon as the first in a series of books which it 
is hoped will be written to cover all sections of the 
United States and their relation to agriculture, is in- 
tended for the use of students, instructors, and in- 
vestigators in agricultural economics, as well as farm- 
ers and others interested in the development of farm 
lands through a better understanding of the soils, 
the crops that are best adapted to them, and the 
methods of farming which will yield the greatest re- 
turns. The book is extensively illustrated and con- 
tains a soil map of the Southern States, together with 
extensive tables and data for use of Southern farmers. 



North Carolina educators have for a number of 
years been accustomed to look to L. C. Brogden, '95, 
State Supervisor of Rural Elementarj' Schools, for 
constructive suggestions for the development of North 
Carolina elementary schools. In two recent bulle- 
tins issued by the State Department of Education 
(Nos. XXVIII and XIV, 1920) Mr. Brogden 
has further added to the list of publications he has 
issued in this field. His latest publications bear the 
respective titles : Suggestions for Rural School Super- 
visors and A Larger Type of Rural School an Im- 
perative Need. The former is a manual for the use 
of rural school supervisors. The latter is a discussion 
of the advantages to be derived from the enlarged or 
consolidated school over the prevailing type of one- 
teacher unit. 



TO THE CLASS OF 1896 

The approaching commencement of the University 
will mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the gradu- 
ation of our class and, if we can gather again at 
Chapel Hill, it will also mark an eventful and joyous 
occasion in the lives of all of us. I can think of no 
more urgent call, either of duty or pleasure, that 
could come to any of us in connection with our re- 
lations to the University than this invitation which 
our Alma Mater cordially sends us to visit the dear 
old place this year, as an organized class. It is both 
an obligation and an opportunity. 

Having been requested by the President of the Uni- 
versity to promote this our twenty-fifth anniversary 
reunion, I am writing this open letter, to urge that 
you begin now, each one of you, to make plans to 
attend. Those of you who have families should plan 
to bring every member, if possible, and let's make it 
a '96 Class-Family Reunion. 

The reunion exercises will be on the morning of 
June 14 in Gerrard Hall. Make your plans, however, 
to come on the Saturday preceding, so that you may 
be there for the full commencement exercises of the 
University, and have several full days of class fel- 
lowship. 

Further details will be set forth in a letter to be 
mailed at an early date to each member of the class 
at his last known address, according to the University 
alumni register, suggesting a tentative reunion pro- 
gram. The addresses in this register may not all be 
correct, so I want to urge every '96 man who sees this 
notice to write me immediately, care of the Asheville 
Citizen, Asheville, N. C, giving the address to which 
further notices should be sent. 

Yours in '96, 

George Stephens. 
Asheville, N. C, April 4, 1921. 



Mr. Thorndike Saville, Associate Professor of Hy- 
draulic Engineering in the University, is the author 
of two recent numbers of the Press Bulletins of the 
North Carolina Geological and Economic Survey en- 
titled respectively: The Relation of Water Resources 
to Forestry (No. 172) and The Water Powers of 
North Carolina (No. 175). Professor Saville has also 
contributed to Engineering News-Record for August 
26 a long article on the plans by which the French 
government proposes to develop and regulate the river 
Rhone. The article, which is extensively illustrated 
with maps, diagrams, and tables, was prepared by 
Professor Saville as a result of his special investiga- 
tions in Switzerland and France in 1919. 



J. B. Robertson. '05, superintendent of schools of 
Cabarrus County, has recently issued in pamphlet 
form Some Suggestions for School Committeemen of 
Cabarrus County. The publication deals with The 
School Building and Its Equipment, Setting the 
House and Grounds in Order, Libraries, the School- 
house as a Community Center, and other subjects 
which Mr. Robertson asks the committeemen to read, 
save for reference, think over, and put into practice.

NOR is it necessary to buy a new "Handy 
Grip" when your Shaving Stick is all 
used. Just buy a Colgate "Refill," for the 
price of the soap alone, screw it into your 
"Handy Grip," and you are "all set" for 
another long season of easy shaving. 

The soap itself is threaded. There is no waste. 

Use Colgate's for Shaving Comfort, as well as for 
the Convenience it affords. The softening 
lather needs no mussy rubbing in with 
the fingers. It leaves your face cool and 
refreshed. 

We took the rub out of shaving origi- 
nally, in 1903.

I'm afraid— 

yes, sir, afraid! 



•T- HC 1*Ky/-^ 



?> 



THE man's name and record are on 
file in the Institute's offices. This 
is his story, just as he told it to 
the Institute man. He sat in an office, 
and the Alexander Hamilton Institute man 
had hardly introduced himself before he 
asked for the enrolment blank. 

"It would be funny if it weren't so 
tragic," he said, "how we procrasti- 
nate in doing the thing we know we ought 
to do. 

"Two years ago I sent for 'Forging 
Ahead in Business,' the wonderful little 
book that your people give to ambitious 
men. 

"I knew the value of your Course; 
I h.id seen what it can do for other college 
men. I meant to enrol immediately, but 



I 



Somehow I put it off 

FELT the need of an all-'round busi- 
ness training. But still I delayed, and 
now — " he stopped arid smiled, and then 
went on with a serious note of regret. 

"Now the thing has happened to me 
that I've been working fur and praying 
for ever since I left school. I've just 
1 inded a real job! Understand I'm to be 
practically the whole works in this new 
place. The decisions will all be mine. 
Buying, accounting, sales, advertising, 
factory management, finance — I'U be re- 
sponsible for them all. 

"And I'm afraid, yes, sir, plain afraid. I 
haven't got the training that I ought to have 



begun to get two years ago . . . the training 
that you offered, and that I meant to take. 

"Suppose I fail in this new big job! 
Why, it would set me back for years! I 
don't intend to fail, of course. I'm going 
to dig into this Course with all my might 
and learn as fast as I can. But I ought 
to have begun two years ago. What a fool 
I was to put it off." 

The tragic penalty of delay 

TT IS because incidents like this are told 

to Alexander Hamilton Institute men 

every day in the year that we are printing 

this man's story in his own simple words. 

How many college men will read it and 
say: "I could have said almost the same 
thing myself!" 

Since it was founded the Institute has 
enrolled thousands of men who are today 
making more rapid progress in business as 
a result of its training. 

Of these no less than 45,000 are grad- 
uates of colleges and universities. 

This is the Institute's mark of distinc- 
tion — that its appeal is to the unusual man. 
It has only one Course, embracing the 
fundamentals underlying all business, and its 
training fits a man to the sort of executive 
positions where demand always outruns 
supply. 

One of the tragedies of the business 
world is that many college men spend 
so many of the best years of their lives in 
doing tasks which they know are below 
their red capac i 



It is the privilege of the Institute to save 
those wasted years — to give a man in the 
leisure moments of a few months the work- 
ing knowledge of the various departments 
of modern business which would ordinarily 
take him years to acquire. 

It can save the wasted years of dull 
routine; it has done it for thousands of men. 
Only you know how much a year of your 
life is worth. But surely it is worth an 
evening of careful thought; it is worth the 
little effort required to send for 

"Forging Ahead in Business" 

"T?ORGING Ahead in Business," is a 
r 116-page book. It represents the 
experience of 1 1 years in training men for 
success. It has been revised twenty times; 
it is a rather expensive book to produce. 
There are no copies for boys or the merely 
curious. But to any thinking man it is sent 
without obligation. Your copy is ready 
to go to you the moment your address is 
received.

DIRECT ADVERTISING 



DESIGNING 



nun] 



iHiiiiminn 



Direct Advertising 



Offers seven distinct advantages of high 
importance to him who would expand 
his selling fields, or who, in his present 
territories, by intensive cultivation 
would make two sales grow where one 
was recorded before. 

1. Direct Advertising Is Individual. 
It reaches reader when he is receptive 
tn the ever-new story of another day's 
mail. It is both his habit and desire to 
give to the mail his personal, undivided, 
interested attention. Whether it suc- 
ceeds in its mission depends on the care 
it received before mailing. 

2. Direct Advertising Is Timely. The 
new business condition that arises today 
can be treated tomorrow as circum- 
stances direct — through Direct Adver- 
ising. A special weather condition, a 
market change, a new line of goods, a 
special discount, any sudden variation 
from normal is readily and effectively 
treated by Direct Advertising. 

3. Direct Advertising is Flexible. It 
introduces the salesman or supplements 
his personal sale. It makes direct sales 
or influences the user to buy from the 
retailer. It covers a city, a state or a 
nation, limited only by the termini of 
transportation itself, whether train, 
steamer, pack mule or human burden- 
bearer. As sales and production de- 
mand, the Direct Advertising appeal can 
be reduced or increased in scope. It is 
at all times entirely under the control 
of the advertiser. 

4. Direct Advertising Is Selective. 
Simply make your own choice of buyers 
you wish to reach. The Postoffice De- 
partment will do the rest. "With Direct 
Advertising you can winnow the inter- 
ested prospects from time-wasters and 
give your salesmen profitable calls to 
make. You can direct a repeated appeal 
to a selected individual and by sheer 
force of persistence and logic break 
down his resistance and create a 
"buyer." Or you can apply the same 
methods to a hundred, a thousand, tens 
of thousands, treating your mailing lists 
separately and making individual sales 
by a mass presentation — through the 
mails. 

5. Direct Advertising is Confidential. 
There is an intimacy about a message by 
mail, comparable only (and often su- 
perior) to the man-to-man meeting. 



Through Direct Advertising you can 
speak personally, give the message an 
individuality, talk to the reader on 
terms of mutual understanding. 

The strategy of competitive selling is 
in recording a sale while another is list- 
ing a prospect. Selling by mail opens 
a transaction between individuals. Your 
appeal and effort are not emblazoned 
broadcast for check-mating by rivals. 

6. Direct Advertising Is Economical. 
If there is waste, you are the waster. 
Printing, paper, postage and mailing 
operations represent an investment. 
But a wise choice of "prospects," ac- 
curate listing and careful mailing elimi- 
nate the hazard so that every message 
reaches its destination. Your appeal 
lias its opportunity for a favorable au- 
dience. Then — is the message as effi- 
cient as the messenger? Thereon de- 
pends whether the sale will be effected. 
By its very economy, in Direct Advertis- 
ing, you have an automatically per- 
sisitent salesman. Some time your cus- 
tomer will be in the market. Those mail 
appeals which do not make actual sales 
are d.o i n g invaluable "missionary 
work," against the buying time. Then 
the order blank returns with the coveted 
business. 

7. Direct Advertising Is Forceful. 
You can marshal your appeals on paper 
without fear of interruption or disre- 
gard. On a single page you can com- 
press the study, the care and the em- 
phasis of months of preparation. There 
is no hesitation in making the appeal, 
no delay between explanation and sug- 
gestions, no interference aroused by the 
human desire to postpone judgment, 
ask questions or delay action. Within 
one cover is the influential appeal, the 
description and illustration, the order 
blank, the return envelope. Your story 
is told completely. Decisive action is 
made easy. Thus is Direct Advertising 
effective.

Firing the 

\'t l>>cit {/-Pressure Gun 



The Chronograph Which 
Records Velocity 



The Spirit of Accuracy 



A bulb is pressed, a roar — and long before the echo dies, 
the velocity and pressure given by a charge of Hercules 
Powder are a matter of record. 

When a shot is fired in the velocity-pressuie gun on one 
of the ranges of the Hercules Ballistic Station, the story 
of that shot is electrically flashed to the chronograph. 
This instrument registers the interval of time necessary 
for the shot to strike the target. 

The painstaking care with which this test is repeatedly 
carried out with every lot of powder is indicative of the 
spirit of accuracy which pervades tbe Hercules Powder Co. 
No strain of manufacturing conditions can be so great- 
no demand for Hercules Explosives so insistent — that this 
spirit of accuracy does not rule at a Hercules plant. 

When you buy an explosive — whether it be dynamite for 
removing mountains or stumps, or sporting powder for 
hunting or trapshooting— remember that a product bear- 
ing the name Hercules can always be depended upon to do 
uniformly well the work for which it is intended.

The Way to Keep Health is to 
Keep Clean Inside 

By C. HOUSTON GOUDISS 

Publisher, The Forecast, and Nutrition Expert of National Reputation 

THE foremost foe of disease is cleanliness. It will defeat even 
the most persistent and resourceful germs quicker than any- 
thing else. 

The average person has an idea that a steaming soap-and-water 
scruh in the tub makes for cleanliness. This is true as far as it goes, 
but it doesn't go far enough. 

Cleanliness that is only skin-deep protects only one of the paths 
by which disease enters the body — and the one least used by enemies 
of health. 

In the long coils of the intestines these deadly foes find their 
favorite battle-field. There, in masses of waste matter, are bred 
noxious poisons upon which these foes can and do feast. There, 
unless this waste matter is promptly removed, these poisons penetrate 
the porous walls of the intestines and get into the blood to play havoc 
with the whole human house. 

In order to have health the body must be as clean on the inside as 
on the outside. 

There is just one safe, convenient and harmless interior cleanser — 
and its name is XU.TOL. 

By lubricating the walls of the intestines so that the constantly 
accumulating waste matter cannot stay long enough in one place 
to cause trouble. NUJOL acts as a perfect human house 
cleaner. 

Being absolutely non-medical, it cannot produce any 
harmful effect on any part of the body with which it comes 
in contact. 

Not a particle of NUJOL is absorbed into the system 
in its cleansing passage thru the digestive channels. It 
causes no pain or discomfort. It is as easy to take as 
water, yet no amount of water could cleanse and keep 
clean the interior of the bodv as NU.TOT does.

SERVICE TO YOU 



AT the touch of a button in' 
L numerable services are per' 
formed for mans personal comfort 
and convenience. Communities are 
made brighter and safer by night. 
Transportation is swifter, surer, 
economically better. Industrial 
machinery everywhere is energised 
to produce the world's goods 
with far greater speed, simplicity 
and economy. 

But bending electricity to mans 
will would be futile without the 
electric light and power companies. 
Through them, men benefit by a 
Research which has made incan' 
descent lamps four times better, 
power transmission easier now 
over hundreds of miles than it 
was then for ten miles, and gen' 
erating machinery capable of pro- 



ducing a hundred times as much 
power in a given space. 

It is through the investment of 
capital in electric light and power 
companies that electricity can be 
generated on a vast scale for econ' 
omy's sake. It is their capital, their 
engineering and maintenance ser' 
vice, their business organisation 
which distribute current through 
constantly multiplying millions of 
wires. These companies are vital 
to the world's use of electricity. 

In order that they may deliver 
to you at the end of a wire the 
fullest benefit of Research, they 
need the sympathetic interest of 
a consuming public which views 
fair'mindedly the operating and 
financing problems of this service.
