Alumni Review 

The University of North Carolina 







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 

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.

Building Program Underway 

The best news that has been heard in Chapel Hill 
since the appropriation was passed in March is that 
which came out of Raleigh on April 16 when the Build- 
ing Commission made three definite, soul-satisfying 
pronouncements: (1) There would be no delay in 
building on account of lack of funds; (2) Thomas C. 
Atwood, builder of the Yale Bowl and directing engi- 
neer in other big developments had been secured for 
duty at the Hill on the following Monday; and (3) 
dirt would begin to fly in two weeks on the extension 
of the track of the Chapel Hill "limited" to a point 
back of the power house and on the foundations of a 
dozen new faculty houses. 


A Critical North Carolina 

The University has just passed through another 
highly important High School Week featuring the 
final contests of the Debating Union and Track Meet 
for 1921 — events, which, while similar in many 
respects to their predecessors, are ever new and 

The full significance of these annual gatherings 
which bring hundreds of high school pupils, teachers, 
and parents to the campus has not been fully sensed 
by the older alumni. They haven't seen the campus 
veritably alive with youngsters and gray heads from 
every quarter of the State making their first ac- 
quaintance with their University and the program 
which the University is carrying out. 

In welcoming the visitors. Professor Bernard char- 
acterized the debate as the most educative event North 
Carolina has witnessed — the discussion having involv- 
ed hundreds of students and informing thousands 
of North Carolinians upon a vital topic of the day. In 
presenting the Ayeock Memorial Cup, Professor Wil- 
liams declared that as a result of the investigation 
and study and open discussion growing out of the 
contests for the past nine years thai North Carolina 
was 1 oming the universally educated (and conse- 
quently critical and discriminating) State that Ay- 
eock prayed that it might be. And Professor Noble, 
ill awarding trophy cups and medals to winners in the 
athletic contest, saw in the youthful visitors the set 
ting up of physical standards that will make for 
sounder bodies and, for the indwelling of sounder 
minds throughout the entire bounds of North 
( 'arolina. 


Harder to Please 

What we are attempting to say about High School 
Week was very much better said by one of the de- 
baters the other day when she told her hostess good- 
bye: "Her mother had always said she was hard to 
please. Hereafter, she would be harder!" 

Possibly you don't gel just what she meant. Electric 
lights in her room, running water in the house, call- 

ing up her principal over the 'phone, were new ex- 
periences. There were the arboretum and the private 
lawns aglow with flowers. Piloted by a senior from 
her home county, she went through the chemistry 
laboratory, saw the specimens in the botanical and 
zoological museums, the guinea pigs in the medical 
laboratory, stood before the tablets in Memorial Hall 
and portraits in the Di and Phi Halls linking her up 
with the illustrious men from her section. There was 
the Library with its almost 100,000 volumes, and the 
bread mixer and big oven in the basement of commons 
hall with some 3,000 biscuits in the making for the 
following tneal — not to mention the 70 gallon soup 
kettles and the electrically driven potato peeler and 
ice cream freezers ! 

Then there were standards for debate and she 
watched one of the boys from her school put the 12- 
pound shot for the first time and fumble at the discus 
and wonder what in the world it was. And then there 
was the idea of college — of four years of growth and 
development beyond the high school and a life of 
expanding interest in the great outside world. 

This young lady went home "harder to please" 
not for selfish purposes, but that her brothers and 
sisters and neighbors might come into a wider field 
of knowledge — that the benefits of the education of 
which Ayeock dreamed and of which she had caught 
the meaning might be more universally applied. 


Bread-and-Butter Letter 

From this same young lady there came the follow- 
ing bread-and-butter letter. It isn't in the conven- 
tional form, but it's worth reading — and remember- 
ing. "I have talked so much about my wonderful 
trip that my throat is sore. If our school can ever be 
used in helping put through a campaign for school 
boys and girls, we're ready." 


The Philosophy of Campus Clothes 

The Design and Improvement of School Grounds, 
a beautifully illustrated 68-page bulletin recently is- 
sued by the Bureau of Extension, by Dr. W. C. 
Coker, Kenan Professor of Botany and Director of 
the University Arboretum, and Miss Eleanor Hoff- 
mann, not only serves as the title of a publication 
intended for the use of North Carolina Schools and 
community organizations interested in the artistic 
planting and beautification of public properties, but 
as a text for the administration and building coin- 
mission of the University having in charge the build- 
ing program for the next two years. 

We say text, because the opening chapter by Dr. 
Coker sets forth the philosophy of campus clothes to 
which be has adhered in the transformation of a 
crawfish bog into the present Arboretum and which 
others in the village have benefited from in the plant- 
ing of their lawns and flower gardens. 



The Review has remarked before that the curve 
of campus beauty — to the making of which grass, 
and flower, and tree, and rain, and sun have all 
contributed — has steadily moved forward since Dr. 
Coker began to apply his philosophy, and The Review 
has also remarked that the curve representing the 
"interior decoration" of the buildings on the campus 
has, if anything, deviated in a downward direction 
from the straight horizontal. 


Why Not an "Interior" Philosophy? 

Granted that the lack of money and the frightful 
overcrowding have made this inevitable, the relief 
now promised will not be as complete as it should be 
unless an "interior" philosophy is worked out and 
steadily applied. North Carolina, through its General 
Assembly, has appropriated money for buildings 
which should be suited to the uses to which they are 
to be put, substantial, and attractive. Doors like those 
in Phillips Hall, floors like those in the Library, parti- 
tions similar to those in Peabody, ought not to be 
tolerated, and a fine should be imposed upon those 
responsible for the care of the new buildings if the 
furnishings are not thought through at the beginning 
and made to serve in looks and usefulness the pur- 
poses for which they are intended. 

We are making no plea for luxury or extrava- 
gance, but we should forever have done with make- 
shifts. North Carolina is willing to spend money for 
that which is decent, and it is up to the authorities 
in charge of the program to see that we get it. 


No Assistance Should be Overlooked. 

Before we pass from the consideration of the build- 
ing program we venture another suggestion — namely, 
that in the carrying out of the program, faculty opin- 
ion, insofar as it is reasoned and sound, be sought 
and utilized. We do not go so far as to suggest 
that the Trustees add faculty representatives to the 
building commission as already constituted, but we 
know that the faculty is greatly interested in the 
whole program of University development and that a 
method should be provided by which such suggestions 
as have formerly been available through, such faculty 
committees as those on buildings and grounds and 
faculty living conditions, (whose present status is 
more or less anomalous) should still reach the full com- 
mission. In designing the new units of the Uni- 
versity plant and fitting them to their precise educa- 
tional uses, in the extension of the campus as a whole, 
in striving after a complete setting and environment 
which will contribute to the highest good of the 
thronging students who pass this way, no available 
source of assistance should lie overlooked. 


The Tar Heel Decries Lack 

While the subject of more attractive interiors is 
under consideration we wish to call the attention of 
the alumni to an article in a recent number of the Tar 
Heel decrying the dearth of works of art in the Uni- 
versity. Except for three or four plaster reproduc- 
tions — the Apollo, Minerva, and Venus — in the 
Library, the Michael in the Chapel, and the few books 
purchased through the income of the Milburn Fund 
for art and architecture, the University cannot be 

said to possess an art collection. But in an institu- 
tion that is to mould the taste of the leaders of North 
Carolina and the South, there ought to be. 

Unfortunately in our undergraduate days we lacked 
even the few works the present student body see, and 
consequently we cannot with any degree of authority 
say what should be provided, but we do know that 
someone else can be found who knows and that some 
alumnus could put a few thousand dollars to no 
better purpose than to make a beginning in this im- 
portant field. 


North Carolina, the Pace Setter 

From an article with the above caption in the 
April Georgia Alumni Record in which the results 
of the recent educational campaign in North Carolina 
are detailed, the following paragraph is taken : 

North Carolina is the only state in the Southeast 
which has become thoroughly converted to the propo- 
sition that revolutionary methods are necessary to 
nut new life into the higher educational institutions. 
It is a truly remarkable circumstance that there 
should be such a totally different conception of a 
state's duty towards education in two commonwealths 
divided only by an imaginary line, as is found when 
we compare North Carolina and Georgia. At the 
very time when our public men are talking in terms 
of cutting appropriations to our colleges, the North 
Carolina legislature has enormously increased the 
appropriations for colleges and charitable institutions. 


Three Decades of Achievement. 

From a 32-page booklet recently issued by the 
University of Chicago and comprising in its makeup 
all that is fine in the craftsmanship of printer, en- 
graver, and binder, The Review excerpts for the 
consideration of the alumni the following statement 
of achievement of one of the great modern universities. 

The University of Chicago is now in its thirtieth 
year. It is still the youngest of great American 
universities. But it has matriculated 87.000 students; 
it has graduated 10,000 Bachelors, 2,000 Masters. 
1.200 Doctors of Philosophy, and 600 Doctors of Law. 
It has an annual enrollment of 11,000 students; it 
has a library of almost 1,000,000 books and assets 
aggregating $50,000,000. 


North Carolina in Comparison 

At the last session of the legislature Carolina made 
"first down," but as compared with this record of 
achievement of Chicago she has still many yards to 
go. In fact, according to a study of college atten- 
dance (University News Letter, April 13), in spite 
of the fact that all North Carolina colleges are over- 
crowded and many nunils failed to receive admit- 
tance last fall, only 23 North Carolinians out of every 
10,000 are in attendance at college today, — thirty-two 
other states in the Union making a better showing in 
this particular than she does. The average for the 
country at large is 36, with Virginia, Tennessee, South 
Carolina, and Texas in the South leading with 33, 
28, 26, and 24 respectively. 

And the total capital invested in all of the 31 col- 
leges of the State is $1 2,500.000 approximately, or 
just one fourth of the $50,000,000 of assets which the 
single University of Chicago possesses. 



The Graduate School 

Attention is again drawn to the activities of the 
Graduate School of the University which has recently 
issued a detailed catalogue of courses offered and a 
list of the one hundred and forty odd fellows and 
graduate students enrolled during the present year 
(Graduate School Series No. 3 of the University of 
North Carolina Record). 

Three facts which an inspection of the catalogue 
clearly shows, and which are of particular interest to 
the alumni are: (1 1 The work of the School has been 
clearly visualized or denned in a thoroughgoing man- 
ner ; (2) The standards of the School are such as grow 
logically out of the distinctive research of former 
years; and (3) Graduate students to the number of 
140 or more from a score of states are here hard at 
work. In this particular, certainly, the caption of 
the article from the Georgia Alumni Bulletin applies 
so far as Southern institutions are concerned, for 
Carolina is the "pace setter." 

□ □□ 
Iowa Shows the Way 

From time to time The Review has drawn the 
attention of the alumni to the advisability of estab- 
lishing fellowships looking to the further development 
of the Graduate School. Just what we have in mind 
is splendidly illustrated by the following excerpt 
from the Iowa Alumnus for February: 

Appointments with stipends are offered in the 
Graduate College of the University for the academic 
year 1921-22 as follows : 

18 Scholars— $200 to $400 a year, with free tuition. 

18 Junior Fellows— $300 to $500 a year, with free 

3 Senior Fellows— $600 to $800 a year, with free 

15 Research Assistants, on half-time — $600 and up- 
wards in proportion to qualifications for service. 

5 Research Associates — $1,000 and upwards in 
proportion to qualifications for independent achieve- 
ment and service. 

75 Graduate Assistants, on half-time, $700 to $800. 

Both Research Assistants and Research Associates 
may be appointed on a twelve months' basis. The dis- 
tinction between research assistant and graduate as- 
sistant is that the former is appointed exclusively for 
assistance in research, whereas the latter is appointed 
for assistance in undergraduate instruction ; both are 
regarded as apprentices. With the permission of the 
department graduate students have the privilege of 
carrying a maximum of a two-thirds schedule as grad- 
uate students.

Not Intended as Free Advertisement 

The following quotation from President Hadley, 
of Yale, is not intended as a free advertisement of the 
journal and organization mentioned, but rather to 
put across anew to the University and alumni the de- 
sirability of founding a University Press and the 
publication by the University of additional scholarly 
journals : 

The thintr on which T look hack- with most satisfac- 
tion in my whole administration is the development 
of the publishing work of the University and the rec- 
ognition it has obtained throughout the world. T 
regard the Yale Review and the Yale University 
Press as our best products of the last twenty years. 

Make These a Matter of Concern 

Elsewhere in this issue, three matters are presented 
which every alumnus will find of pronounced interest : 
(1) The commencement program; (2) The statement 
concerning the advancement of the program of the 
building commission; and (3) A program of activi- 
ties for a central alumni office. 

In presenting these matters for special consider- 
ation we would remind the alumni that their presence 
is particularly desirable at this commencement, that 
they may play an important part in the financing and 
hacking of the building program, and that they 
should realize fully what service an alumni office can 
render Alma Mater. 

As the University grows, it is imperative that it 
receive the constant, informed assistance of the 
alumni. Otherwise, there is no way under the sun 
by which it can be 100 per cent efficient, and it cannot 
afford to be anything else. 

□ □□ 
A Matter of Taxes 

The Review is not a close student of the tax situ- 
ation in North Carolina, but it followed the tax legis- 
lation of 1919 and the subsequent revaluation carried 
out in accord with it to the point that it thoroughly 
believed the program was by far the most important 
provided for in the history of the State. Barring a 
few minor defects, the program was undoubtedly one 
making for progress and righteousness and should 
have been continued with a minimum of alteration. 

The action of the recent legislature in opening the 
gate for the return to an approximation of the former 
status (an openinsj of which a large number of 
counties have already taken advantage) and of re- 
fusing to provide an ad valorem tax for State pur- 
poses, has already led to a grave situation the end of 
which is yet far from being in sijrht — particularly as 
it relates to the money required for the maintenance 
of the six months school program and the underwrit- 
ing of the bonds authorized for roads and other build- 
ing programs. 

Afrain. we repeat that we cannot qualify as a tax 
expert — but we cannot close our eyes to the fact that 
the change recently provided for tends to the weaken- 
ing, rather than the quickening of the building of a 
greater, finer State. 


Shall the Women Have a Home? 

Alumni who attended the annual meeting last com- 
mencement will recall that Judge F. D. Winston, '79. 
offered a resolution which was adopted that the Gen- 
eral Alumni Asociation memorialize the legislature to 
provide a woman's building for the women students 
of the University. 

So far as The Review can discover, the Association 
did not present such a memorial as authorized by the 
resolution, and although an item in the six year pro- 
gram presented by the University called for $200,000 
for a woman's building, no plans, so far as The 
Review knows, are underway for the erection of it 
out of the present building funds. 

But hi' thai as it may, the time has come for the 
University to settle this matter and settle it satisfac- 
torily — by the immediate erection of an adequate wo- 
man's building. 



For twenty-four years women have been admitted 
to the upper classes and professional schools of the 
University in order to permit them to pursue courses 
nut offered elsewhere in North Carolina. In spite of 
every conceivable difficulty they have continued to 
come and in increasing- numbers. This year some (55 
have been enrolled and the demand constantly grows. 

Time was when only four or six applied for admis- 
sion and the matter could be handled. But today with 
the demand steadily increasing- and with absolutely 
no provision made for their physical comfort and 
housing, the final limit has been reached. Women are 
here. Others want to come, and must come if they 
secure in North Carolina the instruction they desire. 
And if they must come, they must be taken care of 
properly — and now — and by means of a building 
erected out of State funds ! 


We Believe the Water's Fine 

Twelve months ago the alumnus imagination could 
easily conjure up the walls of a tip top ample hotel 
soon to be placed somewhere near the campus where 
the old grad or visitor or institute attender or golfer 
(if we had a golf course), or what not could "put 
up" for a genuinely comfortable stay within sound of 
the old bell — for John Umstead was talking in the 
terms of hotel prospectus, with Messrs. Wright, Hill, 
Roberson, and Woollen aiding and abetting close by. 

The Review doesn't know what happened to their 
fair vision, but it does know that the need for an 
ample hotel has grown in the twelve months which 
have passed and that the promoters are overlooking 
some dividends that are lying around to be picked 
up by the fellows who go ahead ! 

One swallow doesn't make a spring. We never said 
it did. And the crowd of parents and friends who 
wanted to come to the recent High School Week events 
but had to be told to stay at home for lack of accom- 
modations, would not develop sufficient business to 
take care of the running expense for the remaining 362 
days — but we are getting tired of telling good, well- 
wishing North Carolinians who want to see their 
University to stay at home! 

We haven't ever made the plunge into the hotel 
waters, but with the High School Week, the Road 
Institute, and the thousand and one meetings and 
special occasions which demand entertainment here 
and have to be shooed away for lack of accommoda- 
tion — we believe the water's fine! We haven't cata- 
logued the events, but if you want the list of the 
income producers, we've got 'em! 


Dr. Alexander Boyd Hawkins, of the class of 1845, 
oldest living alumnus of the University, died at his 
home in Raleigh early on the morning of April 14. 
He was in his ninety-seventh year, having been born 
January 25, 1825, in Franklin County. 

News of the death of the dean of all the University's 
sons, the eldest brother of the 10,000 living alumni, 
was received in Chapel Hill with deep sorrow. E. 
R. Rankin, Secretary of the Alumni Association, sent 
the following telegram to Dr. Hawkins' family: "In 
the death of our oldest living brother the Alumni As- 
sociation of the University of North Carolina has lost 
its most honored member, a loyal and devoted son of 
Alma Mater. The lesson of his long life has been a 

constant inspiration. We send you our deepest sym- 

President Chase sent this telegram: "The president 
and faculty of the University are deeply grieved at 
the death of her most devoted son, honored for many 
years as the University's oldest alumnus." From the 
student body went also a telegram signed by W. R. 
Berryhill, president of the senior class, and John 
H. Kerr, Jr., chairman of the campus cabinet: "The 
University student body joins the many friends and 
admirers of Dr. Hawkins in sorrow and grief for his 

To the great body of the alumni Dr. Hawkins was 
known and revered above all other sons of the Uni- 
versity. Since the death several years ago of Major 
Francis T. Bryan, of the class of 1842, Dr. Hawkins 
has been repeatedly honored and universally revered 
as the oldest living alumnus. He has been the guest 
of honor at many alumni gatherings and every year 
on his birthday telegrams of congratulation and good 
wishes have poured in on him. 

To the day of his death Dr. Hawkins maintained 
his sympathetic and intelligent interest in the Uni- 
versity. He had lived through many generations of 
educational history in North Carolina, seen and known 
intimately the flourishing University of the days be- 
fore the Civil War, watched the University's struggle 
through the war period and through the blight of 
reconstruction, had been a passionate sympathizer in 
the dark days of the '70 's and early '80 's, had watched 
with pride the steady growth of the '90 's and early 
twentieth century, and had rejoiced with the whole 
State in the full flowering of the recent years. Suc- 
cessive administrations of Swain, Pool, Battle, Win- 
ston, Alderman, Tenable, Graham, and Chase were all 
familiar to him in the rise and fall and steady develop- 
ment of University history. 

Dr. Hawkins was born in Franklin County, January 
25, 1825, the son of Colonel John D. Hawkins and of 
Mrs. Jane Boyd Hawkins. His uncle was Governor 
William Hawkins; his grandfather was Colonel Phile- 
mon Hawkins, aide to Governor Tryon at the Battle 
of Alamance. He went to school in Louisburg and 
entered the. University in 1841, sixteen years old. 
After he graduated in 1845, he went to Jefferson Medi- 
cal School in Philadlphia. 

As a young doctor he lived first in Warren County 
and then moved to Florida, his wife's state He 
abandoned the practice of medicine in Florida and 
became a planter, living for several years near Talla- 
hassee, and then moving to Raleigh where he had 
been for the past forty years. He was a director of the 
Citizens National Bank, and a devoted member of 
the Church of the Good Shepherd in Raleigh. His 
wife, who was Miss Martha L. Bailev. a daughter of 
General William Bailey, died in 1010, and an only 
daughter died in infancy. Dr. Hawkins was the oldest 
living graduate of Jefferson and was thought to be the 
oldest bank director in the United States. 

James Petigru Carson. '65, is the author of Life, 
Letters and Speeches of James Louis Petigru, the 
Union Man of South Carolina. (W. H. Lowdermilk 
& Co., Washington. D. C. 497 p.. il, $6.00, 1920). 
The book contains a collection of Petigru 's speeches, 
his legal arguments of historical interest and many 
personal letters, all of which throw a good deal of light 
tinnn American history in the trying times just pre- 
vious to the Civil War. 




Three salient facts stand out in the building plans 
at the University as The Review goes to press, all 
indicating that the biggest construction work ever 
done in Chapel Hill, involving the expenditure of the 
$1,490,000 appropriation granted by the General As- 
sembly for permanent improvements, will be started 
immediately, will be carefully planned and scientifi- 
cally directed, and will be prosecuted with the utmost 
vigor until the last detail has been competed. The 
vital facts are these: 

First — The condition of the money market, in Wall 
Street or anywhere else, is not going to block the 
building. North Carolina bankers and investors, 
many of them University alumni, have shown such a 
willingness to finance the University's building that 
the Trustees are going ahead. 

Second — Thomas C. Ativood, one of the best known 
supervising engineers in the United States, with a 
long record of successful building, has been retained 
as engineer for all the University construction, has 
already come to Chapel Hill, and will be continuously 
on the job until the work is finished- 
Third — Plans have already been made and ground 
will probably be broken by the time tltis issue of The 
Review reaches its readers for the first projects, the 
construction of a spur railroad track to haul materials 
and the erecting of a dozen new faculty houses. 

These and other matters were settled at a joint 
meeting of the Building Committee and the Executive 
Committee of the Trustees, in Raleigh, April 16. Mem- 
bers of the Building Committee are J. Bryan Grimes, 
chairman, George Stephens, James A. Gray, Haywood 
Parker, John Sprunt Hill, President Chase, and 
Charles T. Woollen, secretary. Members of the execu- 
tive committee are Governor Morrison, E. C. Brooks, 
Claudius Dockery, J. W. Graham, J. Bryan Grimes, 
Walter Murphy, Dr. R. H. Lewis, Charles Lee Smith, 
Charles Whedbee, J. S. Manning, Frank D. Winston, 
W. P. Bynum, Julian S. Carr, Josephus Daniels, and 
R. D. W. Connor. 

Financial Condition No Bar 

The Trustees agreed first and foremost that the so- 
called financial depression with consequent tight 
money and high rates of interest would not bar Uni- 
versity construction work. Irrespective of whether 
State authorities can obtain money on bonds from 
Wall Street, the money can and will be obtained. If 
through the regular channels, then so much the better; 
but if not through the regular channels the men who 
are determined that the University shall live up to the 
responsibility of doing its own building are going to 
see that it gets the money. 

North Carolina bankers and investors, led by Uni- 
versity alumni, have agreed that the necessary money 
can be found in the State. They have gone further 
and in many instances have offered to take over large 
blocks of the bonds themselves.* After thorough in- 
vestigation of this situation the Building Committee 
and the Executive Committee felt so sure of their 
ability to get the money that they gave the word to 
go ahead. What loomed up therefore in the minds 
of some persons as a terrible obstacle has broken 
down before the inherent financial solvency of the 

Thomas C. Atwood to be Supervising Engineer 

The first step in the selection of personnel to handle 
the construction was the signing of a contract with 
Thomas C. Atwood, to be the supervising engineer of 
the entire project, the executive officer of the Building 
Committee, the responsible head of the construction 

Mr. Atwood came to Chapel Hill, April 19, estab- 
lished offices immediately, and will be continuously 
in Chapel Hill and on the job until it it finished, 
giving to it his whole time. He will develop his own 
organization. As the responsible engineer he will see 
to the letting of contracts, will follow and supervise 
the work, will, through his organization, act as in- 
specting officer, and will be the administrative and 
direct head of the whole job. His long record of suc- 
cessful construction work justifies his retention in 
this important position. 

A graduate of Masachusetts Institute of Technology 
(1897), he was associated with the construction of 
the monumental pumping station of the Metropoli- 
tan Park System of Boston, spent three years in 
Philadelphia on the design and construction of filter 
plants and pumping station, was for three years divi- 
sion engineer in Pittsburgh in charge of design and 
construction of reservoirs, pumping stations, sewers 
on a job involving $1,000,000, and for seven years was 
designing and division engineer in New York, con- 
nected with water work system, a $10,000,000 job. 

For two years in New Haven he was in charge of 
the construction of the famous Yale Bowl. He built 
Camp Merritt, New Jersey. He was supervising engi- 
nee for the Navy in full charge of the construction of 
the Squantum Destroyer Plant, Boston, with subsi- 
diary plants at Buffalo, Providence, and Cambridge, 
Mass., a work involving the expenditure of $25,000,- 
000. He was district plant engineer for the Emer- 
gency Fleet Corporation in charge of construction 
and maintenance of all shipyards, dry docks, and 
marine railways on the Atlantic coast between Balti- 
more and Wilmington, a work involving the expendi- 
ture of $20,000,000. He has been chief engineer of 
the Durham Hosiery Mills in full charge of mill and 
mill village construction. 

At Chapel Hill his own organization will include an 
architect, a water-works engineer, draughtsman, in- 
spectors, and clerks. 

Work to bfc Started Immediately 

The first two projects will be the construction of a 
mile and a quarter of railroad track leading from the 
Chapel Hill station at Carrboro to the building area 
on the campus and the building of faculty houses. 
Building experts are agreed that the cost of such a 
spur track will more than save the money that would 
otherwise have to be spent on hauling material by 
truck or wagon from the railroad to the building sites. 
It is possible that such a track will develop in the 
future into the regular line by which railroad pas- 
sengers will come to Chapel Hill, although that is 
looking ahead a bit. 

Surveys for the spur have already heen run. The 
track will swing around southwest of Chapel Hill, 
striking the Pittsboro road south of Cameron Avenue 



and hitting the campus south and back of Peabody, 
Phillips and Memorial Halls and the South building. 

Twelve new houses for members of the faculty will 
be started immediately. Seven of these will be built 
by the University, five by individual members of the 
faculty; but all the building will be under the same 
general supervision, a plan which will save money for 
the individual builders. Several of these houses will 
be located in vacant lots about Chapel Hill owned by 
the University, and one new settlement, somewhat on 
the order of the new residence center on the edge of 
Battle Park, will be located on the high land along 
the Pittsboro road. 

While this preliminary work is going ahead, plans 
will be completed for the big pieces of University 
construction. These will include probably five dormi- 
tories, each housing 72 students each; the virtual 
doubling of Swain Hall, the main University dining 
hall ; the erection of probably three class room build- 
ings, a law building, a language building, and a 
combined history, economics, and social sciences build- 
ing ; wide-spread extension of the heating, water, light, 
and sewerage system; and the furnishing of all these 
buildings and the adding of equipment to old build- 
ings. These projects, it is estimated, will consume the 
$1,490,000 available. 

To be Finished in Two Years 
Although those in charge of the building know 
the difficulties ahead of them, they say they are going 
to finish the work in two years. A great deal of time 
and thought has been given and is being given now 
to careful planning. Every effort is being made to 
see that no mistakes occur in the general scheme. The 
best advice from the most experienced architects and 
builders is being sought to the end that economy, effi- 
ciency, and beauty will all be written into the con- 
struction work. 

But once the plans are made, every pressure will be 
exerted to push the work through with a drive. Finish 
the job in two years is the aim of Building Committee, 
Board of Trustees, Executive Committee, President 
Chase, Business Manager Woollen, engineers, archi- 
tects, and builders. They feel that the State has put 
the work squarely up to them. The barrier of the 
State Building Commission and the State Architect 
has been removed; the job is the University's. They 
mean to do it cleanly. 


Fresh from eight months in the Orient where he 
traveled up and down the Pacific investigating har- 
bors and shore lines with respect to harbor develop- 
ment, Professor Collier Cobb returned to Chapel Hill 
for a brief visit in mid-April and was soon off again, 
this time to South America where for another four 
months he will pursue the elusive shore line and 
sound the depths of commercial possibilities and sub- 
equatorial hospitality. 

As one of the first members of the University faculty 
to obtain a year's leave of absence under the Kenan 
Research Traveling Professorship, Professor Cobb has 
been able to continue the study of a life-time on shore 
lines with relation to harbor developmnt, a subject 
which involves also a general study of commercial 
geography and the development of trade routes. 

In previous years Professor Cobb has studied the 
shore lines and harbors along the Atlantic coast of 
Europe and along Mediterranean shores and had also 

begun his study of the Pacific shore lines. Eight 
months ago he set out to complete the Pacific work. 

On the American side he worked upward from 
southern California as far north as Seward, Alaska, 
then jumped the Pacific and ranged the Asiatic coast 
from Bering Sea to Saigon in French Indo-China. 
He investigated every important harbor within those 
limits oil the Asiatic coast, worked through all the 
principal harbors of Japan, continued his work in 
Hawaii, and on his way home stopped off to look over 
part of the Gulf coast of the United States, which 
somehow he had hitherto neglected. 

From the decks of private yatchs, from revenue 
cutters and lighthouse tenders, many of them turned 
over to him by Japanese friends and officials, he has 
studied the shifting harbor lines, dug deep into the 
problem of maintaining harbors, and investigated en- 
gineering methods to improve and maintain the ports. 
On the shore he has led camping parties over the 
ground, studying the changes wrought by man and 
the probable action of natural forces in the future. 

"For the success of my work I am indebted to the 
Japanese," Professor Cobb said. "Japanese friends, 
including students whom I had taught at the Uni- 
versity, and Japanese officials were universally kind, 
courteous, and obliging in their treatment. Every 
possible facility for investigation was placed at my 

"It was only through the protection of the Japa- 
nese that I was able to enter Siberia and continue my 
work there." 

Professor Cobb made many talks before Oriental 
audiences. He spoke before the Y.M.C.A. at Waseda 
University, in Tokio, and at board of trade and 
chamber of commerce dinners in Peking, Shanghai, 
and in many other large cities. He was entertained 
by many government officials in Japan, China, and 


From Mrs. A. W. Belden, the Library is the recip- 
ient of a number of works in the fields of chemistry 
and mining engineering which formed part of the 
library of her late husband, A. W. Belden, '97, who at 
the time of his death was in charge of the coke 
oven department of the Allequippa Iron Works at 
Woodlawn, Pennsylvania. The gift comprises several 
volumes of Proceedings of the American Society for 
Testing Materials, Transactions of the American In- 
stitute of Chemical Engineers, The Journal of the 
American Chemical Society, Journal of Industrial 
Chemistry, Chemical Abstracts, and a number of text 
books and pamphlets on chemistry and allied subjects. 


Dr. William B. Munro, professor of municipal gov- 
ernment in Harvard University, delivered the Weil 
Lectures for 1921 in Gerrard Hall on April 19, 20 
and 21, on the subject of "Personality in City Politics 
or Some Notable American Mayors." The Weil lec- 
tureship was established by the families of the late 
Sol and Henry Weil, of Goldsboro. The lectures deal 
each year with problems of citizenship. 

Dr. J. F. Dashiell, Professor of Psychology, was 
elected a member of the Council of the Southern So- 
ciety of Philosophy and Psychology at its recent 
meeting at Macon, Georgia. 




Headed by three victories over the University of 
Virginia, the record of the University baseball team 
to date is the most impressive of any University team 
of the past decade, possibly of all time. It has won 
thus far eleven games, lost two, and tied one. 

Still ahead of it on the schedule is a difficult series 
of games and it is by no means certain that the team 
will finish the season without further defeats. To 
those who have seen Captain Wilson's men in action, 
however, it is apparent that the 1921 team is one of 
the greatest, maybe the greatest, that ever repre- 
sented the Uuniversiy. 

A capable staff of pitchers, Wilson, Bryson, and 
Llewelyn, with some assistance from Rosenian and 
Abernethy, is surrounded by an unusually aggressive 
and hard hitting club. The individual batting aver- 
ages are not high, nor has the team made any un- 
usual number of hits in any game, but it has un- 
questionably shown the consistent ability to hit at 
the right time, to come from behind with a determined 
rush, and to slash through to victory when the game 
was hanging on edge. 

The complete record of college games thus far 
follows : 

Carolina 7, Davidson 3. 

Carolina 6, A. and E. 4. 

Carolina 5, Virginia 3. 

Carolina 5, Washington and Lee 2. 

Carolina 3, Lynchburg College 3, (10 innings). 

Carolina 4, Maryland 1. 

Carolina 3, Florida 1. ^^ 

Carolina 4, Wake Forest 3, (11 innings). 

Carolina 5, Davidson 9 f (11 innings). 

Carolina 4, Trinity 2. 

Carolina 4, Guilford 2. 

Carolina 7, Virginia 3. 

Carolina 3, Virginia 2. 

Carolina 3, A. and E. 9. / 

Games are yet to be played with Trinity in Durham, 
and with Wake Forest in Chapel Hill. From these 
two teams the University has already won one game 
each, but the quality of college baseball in North 
Carolina is so high this year that both contests 
promise to be hard fought. 

The northern trip, May 2-9, includes games with 
Georgetown, Maryland, Fordham, New York Uni- 
versity, College of the City of New York, Swarthmore, 
and V. M. I. Georgetown and Fordham have un- 
usually strong teams this year, and no team on this 
list is weak. As a matter of fact, the University has 
not met a weak team-this year. 

Carolina Wins Three Games From Virginia 

By winning three times from Virginia the Univer- 
sity team has made a new record. It is the first time 
that either Carolina or Virginia has won three games 
in one year from the other team, and it is a matter 
for further satisfaction that all three games were 
clear-cut victories. 

The first Virginia game was played in Charlottes- 
ville, Carolina wanning 5 to 3. The second in Greens- 
boro, played before 6,000 persons, was won 7 to '■'>. 
The third in Chapel Hill, with 3,000 persons present, 

was won :! to 2. Bryson pitched the first two games, 
Captain Wilson the last. 

A home run drive by Lowe, one of the longest hits 
ever made in Charlottesville, helped materially to win 
the first Virginia game. Bryson pitched steadily, the 
Carolina infield gave him gilt-edge support, and the 
whole team hit opportunely. 

In the second game, played in Greensboro, Caro- 
lina led from the start. The Tar Heels hit savagely, 
fielded cleanly and at times brilliantly, took advan- 
tage of Virginia's misplays, and were aggressive from 
start to finish. Opportune hitting by the Morris 
brothers, Llewelyn, McLean, Spruill, and McDonald 
drove in the runs. The crowd was one of the largest 
that ever saw a baseball game in North Carolina. 
Especially notable was the singing and cheering of 
nearly a thousand girls from Greensboro College for 
Women and the North Carolina College for Women. 
Many alumni from all over the State were present. 

The third Virginia game was the closest of the 
three. Virginia led 2 to until the eighth inning, 
Taylor pitching a splendid game. But in the eighth 
he walked three batters and Sweetman came through 
in the emergency with a timely hit, tying the score. 
In the next inning Roy Morris tripled on the first 
ball and scored a moment later on Captain "Lefty" 
Wilson's long sacrifice fly. Wilson pitched steadily 
and fanned ten batters. 

Games Won from State Colleges 

Against colleges in North Carolina the University 
team has split even with Davidson, winning 7 to 3 
and losing 9 to 5 ; has split even with A. and E. 
winning 6 to 4, and losing 9 to 5 ; has won from Guil- 
ford 4 to 2; from Trinity 4 to 2 ; and from Wake 
Forest 4 to 3 in eleven innings. 

The first Davidson game iu Winston-Salem was won 
by Lowe's home run with the bases full in the ninth 
inning. In the second game Davidson won in the 
eleventh inning on a combination of Davidson hits 
and Tar Heel errors. Davidson was clearly the better 
team that day, Carolina showing her poorest form of 
the season. 

Unusual interest attached to the Wake Forest game, 
which Carolina won 4 to 3 in eleven innings. Wake 
Forest has one of the best teams ever developed in 
North Carolina and the University game is the only 
one it has lost. Victory came when the game seemed 
hist. Two were out in the ninth inning and Wake 
Forest was leading 3 to 2 when Sweetman with two 
strikes mi him singled. Roy Morris walked and Cap- 
tain Wilson singled to center, sending Sweetman 
across the plate with the tying run. In the eleventh 
Roy Morris crashed out a teriffic home run and put 
the game on ice. 

Another home run by Lowe in the ninth inning 
won the first A. and E. game, (i to 4, after a bril- 
liant contest. 

The Line-up of the Team 

The line-up of the team has been fairly uniform all 
season. Roy Morris, captain of the freshman team last 
year, has done all the catching. Allan McGee has 
been the substitute catcher and has also been used 
twice in the outfield and twice for pinch hitting. 



Captain "Lefty" Wilson, Bryson, Llewelyn, Rose- 
man, and Abernethy have handled all the pitching. 
Wilson worked in the first Davidson, the first A. and 
E., the Maryland, Wake Forest, Trinity and third 
Virginia games. Bryson pitched the first two Vir- 
ginia games, part of the A. and E. game, and the 
second Davidson game. Llewelyn pitched the Wash- 
ington and Lee, the Guilford, and part of the Lynch- 
burg games. A sprained ankle, which has since recov- 
ered, kept him out for a while. Roseman pitched 
against Florida and Abernethy against Lynchburg 
part of the game. 

Frank Spruill has played first in every game save 
one, and the rest of the infiled has been unchanged, 
McLean at second, McDonald at short, and Fred 
Morris at third. In the outfield Lowe has been in 
left, Shirley in center, and Llewelyn and Sweetman in 

right. Wilson and Robbins have been used once or 
twice in the outfield and Shirley played once on first. 
The Morris brothers, Bryson, McDonald, McGee and 
Shirley came up from last year's freshman team. 
Wilson, Llewelyn, Lowe, McLean, Robbins, and Sweet- 
man are veterans from last year. Spruill played on 
the 1917 freshman team. 

Lowe's Home Run Record 

An unusual feature of the early season was the 
home run hitting of Robbins Lowe, left fielder and 
football captain for next .year. He hit four home runs 
in the first four games, winning the Davidson and 
A. and E. games with ninth inning credit clouts, help- 
ing win the first Virginia game, and the Washington 
and Lee game. Roy Morris has hit two home rnuis, 
and Shirley and Llewelyn one each. 


The ninth annual final contest of the High School 
Debating Union came to a successful conclusion in 
Chapel Hill on the night of April 15, when Ludlow 
Rogers and Miss Eunice Hutchins, final speakers on 
the negative, representing the Durham High School, 
won the decision over James Hendrix and Allen Stain- 
back, final speakers on the affirmative, representing 
the Greensboro high school, on the query: "Resolved, 
That the policy of collective bargaining through 
trade unions should prevail in American industry." 
This final debate was the culmination of the trian- 
gular debates which were held throughout the State 
on this query April 1. Two hundred high schools 
took part in the triangular debates. Fifty schools 
won both debates and sent their teams numbering 
two hundred debaters to the University for the finals. 

The Preliminaries 

The debaters and their teachers and friends arrived 
in Chapel Hill for High School Week on April 13 
and 14. A drawing for sections and pairs in the first 
preliminary was held on Thursday afternoon, April 
11. The first preliminary in thirteen sections was 
held Thursday night, Four complete debates with 
rejoinders were staged in each section. One affirma- 
tive team and one negative team were chosen from 
each section for the second preliminary. The schools 
which succeeded in placing their affirmative teams in 
the second preliminary were: Durham, Greensboro, 
High Point. Scotland Neck, Washington Collegiate 
Institute, Chapel Hill, Goldsboro, Sanford, Calypso, 
Mount Olive, Leaksville, Gastonia, Kings Mountain. 
The schools which placed their negative teams in the 
second preliminary were: Durham, Greensboro, High 
Point, Scotland Neck, Washington Collegiate Insti- 
tute. Chapel Hill, Goldsboro, Rock Ridge, Henderson, 
St. Pauls, Louisburg, Concord, and Tarboro. The sec- 
ond preliminary was held on Friday morning, April 
15, the affirmative teams speaking in Di Hall and 
the negative teams in Phi Hall. The result of the sec-, 
ond preliminary was that the Durham negative team 
and the Greensboro affirmative team were chosen for 
the final debate. 

The Final Debate 

Memorial Hall was filled to overflowing for the final 
debate for the Aycock Memorial Cup. The audience 

was made up of members of the faculty, students, citi- 
zens of Chapel Hill and many visitors from all sec- 
tions of the State. In presiding, Professor W. S. 
Bernard, himself a former Carolina debater, pointed 
out the significance of the annual contest of the High 
School Debating Union, and referred to the vast edu- 
cative influence of these contests upon the debaters 
themselves throughout the State, upon the other high 
school students and upon their communities in general. 
He spoke of the importance of the questions which 
had been discused by the High School Debating Union 
in the past nine years, as woman suffrage, initiative 
and referendum, ship subsidies, enlargement of the 
navy, government ownership of railways, compulsory 
arbitration of industrial disputes, compulsory mili- 
tary training, immigration restriction, and collective 
bargaining through trade unions. 

The four speakers acquitted themselves well both 
in their main speeches and in rejoinders. They show- 
ed a comprehensive knowledge of the subject and 
ability as debaters. The decision of the judges, 
Messrs. H. M. Wagstaff, L. P. McGehee, L. R. Wilson, 
George Howe, and Archibald Henderson was unani- 
mous for the negative. 

Professor Horace Williams, father" of the Carolina 
system of debates, presented the Aycock Memorial 
Cup to the winning team. He referred to the four 
speakers as being the four best informed persons in 
North Carolina on the subject of collective bargain- 
ing, and he referred to the fact that nearly eight hun- 
dred other debaters were just about as well informed 
on the subject as were these four final spakers. He 
pointed out that all this meant that North Carolina 
was becoming a critical, discerning, educated State, 
the sort of State that Aycock had dreamed of. 

Professor M. C. S. Noble delighted the immense 
audience with his happy presentation of cups and 
medals to the winners in the inter-scholastic track

High School Week 
High School Week has come to be one of the best 
established institutions in the University. The visi- 
tors from the high schools always receive a royal wel- 
come on the Hill. Xo other event, not even com- 
mencement, brings out a larger crowd than does the 
final debate each year for the Ayeoek Memorial Cup. 
Undoubtedly through these annual visits of the high 
school debaters and athletes the University and the 
high schools are brought into much closer and very 
sympathetic relationship. 


The biggest and most succesful inter-scholastic 
track meet ever held in North Carolina was staged 
on Emerson Field on April 15. One hundred and 
twenty-five athletes representing fifteen schools took 
part in the meet. The Chapel Hill high school made 
the highest score and so won the award of the trophy 

The score of the meet was as follows: Chapel Hill 
31; Greensboro, 27 1-2; Burlington. 17; Oak Ridge. 
Hi: Friendship, 8; Wilson. 5; Castalia, 3; Wilming- 
ton, 2. 

Four State high school records fell during the 
meet. Koenig, of Greensboro, smashed his own quar- 
ter mile record. Bell, of Greensboro, made a new 
record for the mile.' Daniels, of Greensboro, blasted 
the State record for the discus. In the relay race 
Burlington hung up a new record. Greensboro was 
supreme on the track while in the field events Chapel 
Hill won out.

In the sixth annual inter-scholastic tennis tourna- 
ment held at Chapel Hill during High School Week, 
April 14 and 15, Oak Ridge Institute won the 
doubles and the Raeford high school won the singles. 
The inter-scholastic tennis tournament this year was 
the fastest which, has yet been staged in the State. 
Oak Ridge won the award of a trophy cup as did 
Raeford also. The schools which took part in the 
tournament were: Chapel Hill. Wilmington. Hills- 
boro. Oak Ridge. Burlington, Raeford. Greensboro, 
Canton. Durham, Wilson and Lenoir. 


The University track team has won one meet and 
lost one. It won from Trinity 77 to 49 and lost to 
Virginia by the overwhelming score of 117 to 9. 

Interest in track has been less than in several years. 
The lack of active competition in North Carolina has 
hurt and also the lack of a regular coach. Dr. Kent 
Brown started out with the squad this year and was 
doing well when he suffered an attack of appendicitis 
and had to resign. Since his illness Oliver Rand, a 
former member of the track team, has been in charge. 

The material has not been impressive and has suffer- 
ed from the general apathy toward track athletics. 
Tn the two meets Sinclair and Fulton were used in the 
sprints; Captain Royall, Harden, and Fulton in the 
quarter: Shepard and Yates in the half: Hanson 
and Murchison in the mile; Ranson and Smith in the 
two-mile; Parker, Carmichael and Yates in the hur- 
dles; and Carmichael and Ross in the jumps. 

In the shot put. discus, and javelin Norris, llalsey. 
and Poindexter have been used, and in the pole vault 
Smiley and Fischel. 

The State meet will be held on Emerson Field. 




The appropriation of $1,490,000 for buildings and 
permanent improvements at the University of North 
Carolina has raised the question already raised by Mr. 
William E. Horner in the Carolina Magazine and by 
Miss Nell Battle Lewis in the Raleigh News and Ob- 
server as to the possibility and desirability of erecting 
a woman's building at Chapel Hill for the increasing 
number of women students asking for admission into 
the upper academic classes and professional schools 
of the University. In the summary of opinion gathered 
by Mr. Horner from the faculty and the men and 
women students, which range all the way up from 
Horace Williams down to the writer of this article, 
of the twenty-one interviewed one student was oppos- 
ed to co-education, one professor regretted that the 
women want co-education, and the nineteen others 
were either unqualifiedly in favor of co-education or 
in favor of co-education in the upper classes, gradu- 
ate, and professional schools. Of these same twenty- 
one, one was opposed to a woman's building and two 
were opposed to a woman's building at the present 
time, and eighteen were in favor of a woman's build- 
ing without qualification as to time. 

In Miss Nell Lewis' interesting survey of the situ- 
ation is an interview with Mrs. Marvin Hendrix Stacy, 
advisor of women, as follows: "It is harder to get 
rooms for girls than for boys. People in town don 't 
want girls as they don't want the responsibility of 
supervising them. We have reached the limit. We 
have continued to find room for one more until there 
is not room for one more. ... A woman's build- 
ing is necessary for proper supervision and for the 
decent accommodation of those already here." Miss 
Battle is very non-partisan and reportorial in her 
lively sketch but yet the sheer facts she assembled 
have woman's building written all over them. The 
logic of Miss Lewis' facts and the gist of Mrs. Stacy's 
opinion is either to close the doors of the Univer- 
sity to women or open the doors of a woman 's build- 
ing to them. Even those who oppose co-education as 
a theory admit the imperative need of a woman's 
building as a fact. The woman's building is inevit- 
able The question is shall it come in the two year 
program, the four year program, or the six year pro- 
gram. A $200,000 woman's building was in the pro- 
posed six year program but as the six year plan was 
reduced to a two year plan the question is shall a 
woman's building be included in the two year plan. 

The Association of Women Graduates of Class A 
Colleges in a meeting in Charlotte discussed, under the 
leadership of Mrs. C. W. Tillett. Jr., the need of a 
woman's building at the University. The Woman's 
Association of the University passed a resolution re- 
spectfully memorializing the Building Commission of 
the University in the interests of a woman's building. 
Before the legislature had made the appropriation of 
$1,490,000 for buildings and consequently before the 
question of a woman's building took its present turn, 
Judge Francis D. Winston, champion of a woman's 
buildinc, proposed the following resolution which was 
adopted at the meeting of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation at commencement, 1920: "Whereas the need 
for a separate woman's building on the campus is 
made necessary by the increased attendance of women 
at Ihn University be it resolved that a committee of the 

alumni be appointed to lay before the approaching 
Legislature the need for such a building and to recom- 
mend a special appropriation of not less than Five 
Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000.00) for erect- 
ing the same. The said appropriation to be entirely 
independent of any other appropriation that may be 
contemplated. ' ' 

Judge Winston's Letter follows: 

Editor, The Review: 

I am much interested in having a separate building at the 
University for the women who attend the institution. I 
very greatly hoped that some patriotic Legislator would intro- 
duce, during the late General Assembly, a bill carrying an 
appropriation for erecting this much needed building. The 
building should contain, of course, the necessary dormitories 
nnd in addition to this there should be a gymnasium and re- 
ceiving parlor. There should also be a reading room and 
general reception rooms. In fact the building should be the 
most complete and up-to-date woman 's building in America no 
matter what it may cost. I take pleasure in enclosing you a 
copy of the resolution you refer to. 

Sincerely yours, 

Windsor, April 30, 1921. Francis T>. Winston, '79. 

The opinion of the University alumnae is repre- 
sented in the following letters : 

Editor, The Review: 

In her plans for building during the next two years, I hope 
the University will not be forgetful of the many women of 
the State who would like to study there. As I recall my days 
of delightful work in the University, I. can but regret that 
so far its doors have, of necessity, been only partially open 
to women and that they have had to eat, as it were, of the 
crumbs falling from the rich man's table! With an ever in- 
creasing number of girls eager for higher education and of 
young women doing advanced work along many lines, it be- 
comes evident that the University should do its part in the 
training of these citizens. The opportunities she presents to 
them will be embraced eagerly and a finer service rendered 
the State because of these. 

With all good wishes for our Alma Mater, I am 
Sincerely yours, 

Salismury, April 25, 1921. Eleanor Watson, '16. 

Editor, The Review: 

Now that the University is about to enter upon a period of 
prosperity and of renewed activity in building, it is time that, 
she prepare some place for the women students who come into 
her ranks. Being the only State institution at which the high 
standard of education given at the University can be found in 
North Carolina, it is entirely natural that the girls and women 
of this State should desire to have the benefit of this higher 
training. Since they have become an increasingly large part 
of the student body, it is necessary that provision be made for 
their living conditions. 

As things are, a girl leaving a college where she has enjoyed 
all the advantages of real social life and of all college activi- 
ties, comes to take her work as a junior or senior here. She 
finds herself forced to live in a boarding house, separated per- 
haps from her friends, and deprived of any chance to partici- 
pate in campus activities. She can use the library, she can 
take part in dramatics, she can go to classes; she has no pro- 
vision made for her gymnastic or athletic training, she has no 



tenter for her college life. Thus, getting advanced training 
intellectually, she misses her development as a leader among 
her associates. 

Since the State has opened the doors of the University to 
women, it is right that they should enjoy the privileges common 
to all students. This they cannot do unless proper equipment 
be provided for them. It is important that those in charge of 
the building program for the University bear this fact in mind. 
Sincerely yours, 

Chapel Hill, April 28, 1921. Louisa Reid, '18. 

In 1882 when two women from the public schools 
of Fayetteville. Miss Etta May Troy and Miss Fannie 
Watson, followed the astounding suggestion of their 
superintendent and applied for admission into the 
University of North Carolina, the University denied 
them entrance. In those days graduates of private 
preparatory schools were admitted on certificate but 
graduates of the infant public schools were admitted 
on examination. From the Fayetteville public schools 
in 1881 came two boys, in 1882 one boy and two girls. 
The boys, were admitted and graduated with high 
and highest honors. The two girls made higher grades 
on the entrance examinations than the boys. The girls 
came in the words of their veteran superintendent 
"asking no quarter on account of age, sex, or previ- 
ous condition of servitude;" they were sent back to 
the bonnie braes of Cumberland because they were 
girls. The girls of 1882 were allowed to look into the 
promised land but not to enter. In 1897 girls, five 
of them, Dixie Bryant, Sallie Stockard, Cecyce Dodd, 
Mary MacRae, and -Julie Watkins, were admitted into 
the University for graduate study. Since 1897 they 
have entered the junior and senior classes and the 
professional schools of law, medicine, pharmacy, engi- 
neering, education, and public welfare. Girls whose 
homes are in Chapel Hill can enter the freshman and 
sophomore classes. Today there are sixty-one women 
students in the University. Last year two of the 
initiates into Phi Beta Kappa were Miss Louise 
Yen able and Miss Mary Cobb. This year the only 
member of the junior class to make all "ones" the 
first quarter was Miss Mary Yellott. The "co-eds" 
stand especially high in scholarship and dramatics 
but are proficient in tennis and basketball and through 
their Women's Asociation are a vital governmental 
and social part of campus life. Men students, here and 
there, affect to scorn the presence of the women stu- 
dents but there 'is not. one who would not miss the 
charm and tone which they unconsciously lend to the 
campus. The women ask nothing but an equal chance 
and they feel that an equal chance means a woman's 
building. They look to the Building Commision to 
do what they know it will do as soon as their minimum 
funds for maximum needs permit: build a woman's 
building at their Universitv for the women of the 

Concludes Miss Xcll Lewis' whole papre article in 
the Nncs and Observer: "However diverse may be 
the opinions rccrardimr the admission of women to the 
University of North Carolina, it is an established cer- 
tainty in the <jood year 1921 that by the increasing 
number of women coming to the institution in quest 
of educational advantages to be obtained by them no- 
where else in the State, in co-education Hie University 
is confronted not with a theory, but with a fact." 

In 1882 the two <rirls from the Fayetteville public 
schools confronted the University with a theory. To- 
dav the sixtv-one girls from all over the Union con- 

front the University with a fact, the fact of the press- 
ing need of a woman's building. In 1882 the Uni- 
versity denied them entrance in theory. In 1921 the 
lack of a woman's building denies them entrance in 
fact. The University administration, alumni, faculty, 
and students are committed, in the democratic idea 
of equal public, education, to the squaring of its fact 
of non-provision with its theory of admission.

The Christian Advocate, general organ of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, South, published at Nash- 
ville, Tenn., in its issue of April 22 contains the fol- 
lowing editorial, under the heading, "North Caro- 
lina's Greater University": 

All who read the newspapers and leading news 
journals know of the marked progress North Carolina 
has made in education in the last twenty years. But 
the growth in school facilities has not been near equal 
to the enlarged interest in education. The colleges 
and the University have not been able to accommodate 
all who have sought higher education. No question in 
the recent State legislature, unless it was the bill pass- 
ed providing a $50,000,000 bond issue for good roads, 
elicited more interest than the matter of making ap- 
propriations for State educational institutions. And 
the spirit of progress, so manifest in many ways in 
North Carolina, is shown in the liberal appropriations 
made. State educational and benevolent institutions, 
in addition to adequate maintenance funds, were given 
a total of $6,745,000 for permanent improvements. To 
the University of North Carolina, located at Chapel 
Hill, $1,490,000 was given for permanent improve- 
ments for the next two years and $925,000 as a two 
year maintenance fund. A building program will be 
put on at once. Tentative plans are said to call for the 
erection of five dormitories, two classroom buildings, 
a law building, eight new faculty houses, increased 
dining room facilities and the extension of lighting, 
heating, water, and sewerage systems. At no other 
time in the one hundred and twenty-six years of its 
history has this great old University received such a 
boost. As a native of North Carolina and an alumnus 
of the University, we are proud of the past record 
of the University of North Carolina and are glad that 
its usefulness is to be so greatly enlarged. 

The April number of the Journal of Industrial and 
Engineering CJiemistry contains an article by L. G. 
Marsh. A.B., now at the Pittsburg Experiment Station 
of the Bureau of Mines. The article is entitled Possi- 
ble Uses of Corncob Cellulose in the Explosives In- 
dustry and the following conclusions are reached: 
"It appears that the only use for corncob celllnlose in 
the explosive industry at the present time is as a car- 
bonaceous absorbent for liquid ingredients, such as 
nitroglycerin, in the manufacture of dynamite. For 
that use it must compete with such materials as wood 
pulp, sawdust, cornmeal, charcoal, peanut hulls, rich 
hulls, and similar materials, all of which have prop- 
erties which are advantageous for the manufacture 
of special grades of dynamite."

There will be big doings in Chapel Hill on Alumni 
Day. Tuesday, June 14. Ten classes ranging- from the 
sixty-year reunion class, 1861, to the baby reunion 
class, 1920, are making their plans to move on Chapel 
Hill in force. It is to be remembered that Alumni 
Day is the day of all days for the alumni and that 
for the Old Grad on this day nothing counts except 
that he walk again with associates of his youth in 
the familiar scenes of Chapel Hill. Advance in- 
formation received by class officers, and committees, 
and by the central reunion committee at the Univer- 
sity, is to the effect that there will be a record-break- 
ing attendance of alumni on the Hill for Alumni 

On the morning of Alumni Day at 10:45 o'clock 
a business meeting of the General Alumni Association 
will be held in Gerrard Hall. The Alumni Luncheon 
will be served at 1 :00 o'clock in the afternoon in Swain 
Hall. Alumni baseball games will be staged at 4 :30 
o'clock on Emerson Field. Class get-together sup- 
pers are on the program at 6:30 o'clock. The Board 
of Trustees will hold their annual meeting at 7:30 
o'clock. The Carolina Playmakers will present a 
series of folk plays in honor of the alumni at 8 :00 
o'clock. The President and faculty will give a recep- 
tion in honor of the graduating class at 10:00 o'clock. 
At various times through the program of Alumni 
Day special class reunion features will be interspersed. 

General alumni headquarters will be established at 
the University Inn and alumni should register there 
upon arrival. Reservations have been made for the 
various classes as follows : 1861, Infirmarv ; 1871, In- 
firmary; 1881, Old East; 1891, Old East; 1896, Old 
West; 1901, Old West; 1906, South; 1911. Vance, 
1916, Battle; 1920, South. 

"Naughty Ones" 

Here we are again and we are glad of a chance to 
appear. They told us in Fresh English repetition 
gives emphasis, consequently, therefore, take notice. 
On June 11, this year, that distinguished '01 class 
shall, will, can, and must assemble on that spot we 
all love, viz., The Hill, for we are going to make a 
home run in this reunion game. 

Reunion Plans : Time, Tuesdav, June 14, Alumni 

Place: Old West Building reserved as headquar- 
ters for '01 class. Get-together dinner, 6:30 P. M. 

Old Pals, take up your pencils and make a circle 
around June 14, on your calendar. You do not need 
what you make at your business that day and the 
University needs you. 

How are you to know the ways in which you might 
help Alma Mater unless you go back there at least 
every five years .' 
Wilmington, N. C. J. G. Murphy, Sec'y. 

191 l's Ten-Year Come-Back 

Listen, all members of the class of 1911 (whether 
graduates or not), we have had out a promise to one 
another for five years that we would all meet to- 
gether again under the "Classic Shades" at this 
commencement. This was a sacred promise and noth- 

ing less than your attendance will discharge the obli- 
gation it contains. 

Tuesday, June 14, is Alumni Day, and it is on the 
afternoon of that day that old 1911 will pull off a 
party that will contain features fully satisfving to 
all. ' Notify "Professor" W. C. George at Chapel 
Hill that you will be present. He will have charge 
of the local arrangements, and he must know how 
many to prepare for. Make any suggestions you have 
to Jack Watters and George Graham. They will con- 
stitute the field committee on ways and means. And 
I hereby appoint every 1911 man a committee to see 
that every other 1911 man attends. 

Boys, it will be worth your while. Time and 
worldly pursuits forbid going into full detail now. I 
know that the purchasing of steers or white elephants 
and the marrying of wives have gone on unabated, 
but we must attend the feast. Abandon the exchanges 
for a season, and bring along your impedimenta. The 
Vance Building has been reserved for us, and it will 
be our privilege and our duty to make its sacred pre- 
cincts resound with yells suggestive of the past and 
prophetic of the future. 

Let me say, too, that great profit will be obtained 
from an exchange of experiences our several mem- 
bers have had within the last ten years. Some of our 
gang have developed into marvels. Why, Bill Joy- 
ner will lead us into the light of how to connect up 
with a lucrative African trade. Dean Taylor will 
demonstrate how to move from the quiet life of a stu- 
dious youth to the active inconsistent life of a pol- 
itician and statesman at middle age. And Ike Moser 
will exemplify how one passes from self-asserting in- 
dependence to domestic docility and meekness. Others 
will be different, but equally as informing. 

Our reunion cannot be complete nor our happiness 
full without you. Come. It will likely be a long 
time between drinks after this. 
Goldsboro, X. C. W. A. Dees, '11. 

To Comrades of '16 

I think the greatest service every member of our 
class can render to himself and to the University is 
to surmount every difficulty that stands in his way, 
and come to Chapel Hill for the reiuiion. Every- 
thing that we intend to do as a class waits upon this 
essential condition. Loyalty to the class and to the 
spirit which has inspired us for nearly ten years is 
the chief essential. If we all come together, talk over 
our various experiences together, have a good time to- 
gether, and rededicate ourselves to the various pur- 
poses we are carrying out, success in these matters 
will be the natural result. 

I realize as much as any man in the class the press 
of personal business that stands in the way of our 
meeting together 100 per cent strong, but I am go- 
ing to Chapel Hill for the reunion, and I believe every 
other member of the class can do the same thing. 
The chief idea is that the class of '16 is going to get 
together on its old stamping ground and get back 
in touch with its intellectual and spiritual home. 

I have been to Chapel Hill several times since my 
graduation, and while I found most of the profes- 
sors there, I have found a newer generation of boys 



oecuping our old haunts. I have missed the fares 
and comradeship of my own college generation, and 
I know thai the chief thing needful now is to get all 
of the old boys back, invoke the old spirit of loyalty 
and enthusiasm, and then naturally put through our 
part of the Graham memorial fund and such other 
objects as we desire to achieve as a loyal body of 
University men.

Dr. J. F. Steiner, professor in the school of Public 
Welfare of the University, is contributing three note- 
worthy articles in (he American Journal of Sociology 
on the subject of Education for Social Work. In the 
current March number lie discusses the ease method 
and law in social work. These articles have received 
high commendation from various academic critics. 

Hayne Davis, '88, student of international relations 
and advocate as early as 1904 of a Union of Nations in 
the likeness of the American Union of States, is the 
author of a series of five articles now appearing in 
The Independent (April 2, 9 and 16, with others to 
follow) dealing with the League of Nations and Amer- 
ica's relation to it in the settlement of international 
policies. In commenting upon the series, the editors 
of Tin Independent say that "what this author fore- 
saw, and foreshadowed in the columns of The Indepen- 
dent in the years 1904-1908, took definite and legal 
shape at the Peace Conference of Versailles in 1919, 
when the Covenant of the League of Nations was ap- 
proved by the representative of the nations assembled 
at that historic spot, to put an end to the World War 
and to prepare for a new era of peace and justice." 

The specific objects of the series are: (1) To prop- 
erly relate the Covenant of the League to the Articles 
of Confederation and the Constitution of the United 
States; (2) to set forth the basis of any international 
union that can hope to endure; (3) to indicate the 
true relation of national armament to national secu- 
rity, international law and justice; (4) to point out 
some of the dangers in the path of any Assiciation or 
League of Nations and the way of escape therefrom ; 
and (5 i to show the order or steps of progress from a 
union however imperfect to one that is more perfect 
and capable of establishing justice and peace, even as 
our own Union of States grew gradually into its pres- 
ent excellent form. 

Two publications recently issued by the Bureau of 
Extension are: (1) Library Extension Service, (Ex- 
tension Leaflet, Vol. IV, No. 4) by Louis R. Wilson, 
'99, in which the loan service of the University Library 
to residents of the State is described; and (2) A 
Study Course in Modern Drama (Extension Leaflet, 
Vol. IV, No. 7) by Elizabeth A. Lay, '18. As indi- 
cated by the title, Miss Lay's study comprises a pro- 
gram for the use of North Carolina Club women who 
in recent years have been pursuing definite courses of 
study in co-operation with the Women's Clubs Divi- 
sion of the Bureau. Professor Frederick H. Koch con- 
tributes an introduction in which he emphasizes the 
rich materials possessed by North Carolina for the 
development of a distinctive community drama. 

In the April issue of the Journal of the American 
Chemical Society is published an article by Dr. A. S. 
Wheeler and Mr. S. C. Smith, entitled "Ethers De- 
rived from the Addition Products of the Nitroanilines 
and Chloral." This research was developed by solv- 
ing the puzzle of an unexpected result and is an illus- 
tration of how new fields are discovered by studying 
out what might be called accidental observations. The 
ethers described were obtained in splendid crytalline 
forms and the paper is illustrated by a photomicro- 
graph by Mr. Walter B. Junes of the department of 

The sixth and seventh articles on the nitrotoluenes 

coming from the chemical laboratory of the University 
appear in the April number of the Journal of Indus- 
trial ami Engineering Chemistry. These articles, by 
Dr J. M. Bell and Messrs. E. B. Cordon (B. S. 
Chem.. 1920) anfl P. If. Spry (B. S. Chem, 1920) 
continue the series dealing with the freezing points 
and thermal properties of the nitrotoluenes, and were 
originally undertaken at the request of the National

When the Association of Alumni Secretaries met 
at the University of Michigan last May to consider 
questions of interest to alumni work in universities 
all over the land, A. G. Pierrot, of the University of 
Chicago, presented an exhaustive report of investiga- 
tions he had made in regard to what the alumni offices 
of the country are doing and what they should do. 
From questionaires from many leading institutions he 
made up a list of the important things that seemed to 
be generally considered as necessary for an alumni 
office. These he presented in concise form and The 
Review is presenting a part of his report herewith, in 
order that the alumni may form an idea of what a 
scope alumni work properly operated can have. Mr. 
Pierrot says the popular consensus of opinion is that 
an alumni organization should have : 

I. Alumni Organization'

Collect and keep historical and biographical material and 

IV. Institutional and Educational Interest 

Keep alumni in close and sympathetic touch with the school, 
for its betterment and growth. 

Keep the university in touch with the alumni — getting alumni 
opinion on matters on which alumni could well advise. 

Develop loyalty to Alma Mater — as appreciation of benefits 
received; to defend the institution when necessary. 

Co-operation of alumni in some university affairs. 

Keeping alumni interested in university and higher educa- 
tional affairs. 

Promote the general welfare of the institution. 

Promote interest among the public in higher education and in 
educational and civil ideals. 

Encourage patriotic and other worthy ends — as alumni rep- 
resenting the institution. 

Induce young men to attend colleges and universities. 

Enable the institution to know how its alumni — its "pro- 
duct" — has benefited by the education afforded; revealing its 
strength, its weakness, its general value as applied in the varied 
affairs of life.

— Major Chas. M. Stedman writes to his 
classmates : ' ' There is to be a reunion 
of the class of '61 at Chapel Hill on 
.June 12-l."i. When my attention was 
called to this fact the memories of the 
days when we were there together 
crowded thick and fast upon me. Our 
daily intercourse at our recitations, our 
debates at the meetings of our society, 
our romps on the campus, our afternoon 
strolls in the woods round and about our 
dear old University, all are as vivid be- 
fore me as if it were only yesterday. 

' ' It has been a long time but we have 
not been forgotten. The faculty of the 
University asks all members of our class 
to meet again at the coming commence- 
ment in June. Let every one of us be 
present, if possible. It will bring great 
delight and happiness to me to see the 
members of '61 again on the campus. ' '

appointment the Charlotte Observer re- 
cently said editorially: 

"We take it that the county will give 
approval to the road board's selection of 
the engineer who is to lay out the high- 
way work under the new regime. Per- 
haps the best demonstration of Mr. 
Lloyd Ross' competency is established 
in the highway he planned from Char- 
lotte through Camp Greene to the town- 
ship line. That road was built for ser- 
vice and will be good 50 years hence. 
Mr. Ross received his instruction at the 
State University and has since managed 
road and street jobs, which proves that 
his education in road engineering was of 
the finished sort. It is safe to say that 
there will be no complaints in future 
about the road work in this county on 
the score of engineering responsibility. ' '

DO you play Chin Golf? It is the 
latest popular game. Play it Win- 
ter or Summer; at home or at your club. 

Chin Golf is not a 19th hole propo- 
sition — nothing like stove baseball or 
conversational tennis, but a regular 
indoor sport. 

Any man who shaves himself can 
play it. Count your razor strokes when 
you shave, and see how low a score 

you can make; It puts fun and 
friendly rivalry into shaving. 

If you are a golfer, you will get the 
idea at once; but, even if you never 
have schlaffed with a driver, nicked 
with a niblick, or been bunkered, you 
may be a winner at Chin Golf. 

You are sure to like the course and 
have a good score if you use Colgate's 
"Handy Grip" Shaving Stick. 

Fill out the attached coupon, mail it to us, with 10c in stamps, 
and we will send you a "Handy Grip," containing a trial size 
Colgate Shaving Stick. Also we will send you, free, a score 
card, the rules for playing Chin Golf, and a screamingly funny

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 
to 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 onlj r 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 

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, j'ou 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 tie hazard so that every message 
reaches its destination. Your appeal 
has 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-oing invaluable ' ' missionary 
work," against the buying time. Then 
the order blank returns with the coveted 

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

"' I 'HESE words buzzed joyously in my 
L ears. But as I looked about me at the 
mahogany and plate glass of my new office, 
a sudden fear gripped me. Would I be 
equal to my new duties ; not in the gense 
of my mental capacity, but physically ? It 
was a big job. It meant heavy responsi- 
bilities, constant alertness, body and mind 
attuned to high productive effort. 

" Could I -stand the strain ? During the 
hard, ambitious years I had devoted to 
the interests of the Company, I knew I 
had overworked, and neglected myself 

" I could see that under this new burden 
of responsibility and work, less than ever 
was I going to be able to devote time to 
keeping fit. I might fail in the job if I 
neglected it for play — and I might fail if 
I stuck too closely to it. 

"My contact with my fellow officers re- 
vealed them to me as men always in con- 
dition, forceful, energetic. And I resolved 
to ask them the secret of it. Each of the 

four gave the same answer — keep the 
system clear of waste matter — avoid consti- 
pation. Every one of them was using Nujol. 

"The president himself told me, 'Consti- 
pation takes more from the business world 
than any other disease or influence. Many 
times the victim does not know he has it; 
often when he does appreciate his condi- 
tion, he tries to treat it with pills, salts, 
castor oil, or mineral waters — which upset 
the system and tend to make the consti- 
pation chronic. There is only one safe 
and sane treatment for constipation. 

" 'This is the Nujol treatment, based on a 
new principle propounded by Sir Arbuth- 
not Lane, an eminent English doctor, and 
recommended now by physicians far and 
wide. Nujol merely softens the food waste 
so that it passes naturally out of the system. 
It does not cause nausea or griping, nor 
interfere with the day's work. I take it 
consistently myself, and I know it is used 
almost universally by prominent business

What Is Research? 

SUPPOSE that a stove burns too much coal for the amount of 
heat that it radiates. The manufacturer hires a man familiar 
with the principles of combustion and heat radiation to make 
experiments which will indicate desirable changes in design. The stove 
selected as the most efficient is the result of research. 

Suppose that you want to make a ruby in a factory — not a mere 
imitation, but a real ruby, indistinguishable by any chemical or 
physical test from the natural stone. You begin by analyzing rubies 
chemically and physically. Then you try to make rubies just as 
nature did, with the same chemicals and under similar conditions. 
Your rubies are the result of research — research of a different type 
from that required to improve the stove. 

Suppose, as you melted up your chemicals to produce rubies and 
experimented with high temperatures, you began to wonder how hot 
the earth must have been millions of years ago when rubies were first 
crystallized, and what were the forces at play that made this planet 
what it is. You begin an investigation that leads you far from rubies 
and causes you to formulate theories to explain how the earth, and, 
for that matter, how the whole solar system was created. That would 
be research of a still different type — pioneering into the unknown to 
satisfy an insatiable curiosity. 

Research of all three types is conducted in the Laboratories of che 
General Electric Company. But it is the third type of research — 
pioneering into the unknown— that means most, in the long run, even 
though it is undertaken with no practical benefit in view. 

At the present time, for example, the Research Laboratories of the 
General Electric Company are exploring matter with X-rays in order 
to discover not only how the atoms in different substances are ar- 
ranged but how the atoms themselves are built up. The more you 
know about a substance, the more you can do with it. Some day this 
X-ray work will enable scientists to answer more definitely than they 
can now the question: Why is iron magnetic? And then the elec- 
trical industry will take a great step forward, and more real progress 
will be made in five years than can be made in a century of experi- 
menting with existing electrical apparatus. 

You can add wings and stories to an old house. But to build a 
new house, you must begin with the foundation.
