The 126th Commencement 

The 126th commencement, full to overflowing with 
an infinite variety of incidenl and interest, takes its 
place in tin- long list of ceremonials marked in the 
following aotable particulars: 

1. The largest class ever graduated from the campus 
was given back to the State for future service. 

2. Alumni, hundreds of them — young alumni, old 
alumni; classes full of pep like '20, and '16, and '11; 
jolly good fellows such as Motley Morehead and his 
crew of '111 ; speech-making alumni, listening alumni 

thronged the campus renewing friendships, deepen- 
ing loyalties, all eager to he utilized in forwarding 
every phase of the University's expanding life. 

3. Everywhere, among faculty, trustees, alumni, 
studenl body, and visitors, there was the inescapable 
feeling that the University was entering upon a new 7 
era of growth and usefulness, a feeling which was 
accompanied by a profound sense of responsibility 
that the new University which is springing into being 
must he built upon foundations whose soundness and 
permanence are beyond all question. 

Prom start to finish, it was the sort of commence- 
ment to cheer, to strengthen; and was a fitting climax 
to a year which will always he characterized as not- 
able in tin' annals of the University.

To the Class of 1921: 

Members of the Class of 1921, you go forth 173 
strong, the largest group Alma .Mater has ever sent 
a1 one time into the work of the world. 

You go forth with a fine record of achievement be- 
hind you. Fou bridged the war, bringing to the new 
campus the fine traditions of the old and raising new 
standards for today and tomorrow. 

You go forth with a vision. In your mind's eye 
you sec a doubled, trebled University; the campus 
moves southward ami expands north and east and 
wesl ; the library doubles, laboratory equipment be- 
comes more ample, the fine arts find a home; appro- 
priations, endowment, gifts, make possible a training 
increasingly varied and enriched. 

You go forth into a state responding to the urge 
of a fuller, liner Life. The Church, education, health, 
public welfare, roads, industry, arc to be set upon a 
higher plane ; nd the State is to take its proper place 

ill I he sisterhoc d of .states. 

You go forth with a desire, deep-rooted and pas 
sionate, to serve in the expanding State and nation, 
and Alma Mater, with a mother's pride, confidently 

hiils you Cod speed! 


Brains Are Not Lacking 

In a recent article appearing iii the Greensboro 
News under the caption "Seeing North Carolina," 
.Major Bruce Craven, aftei noting the fad thai the 
University went to New York for a consulting ar- 

chitect to direct the immediate expansion of the 
campus and that the State Eighway Commission drew 
upon Baltimore to secure a chief engineer to carry out 
the $50,000,000 road program, asked the question 
point blank "Doesn't North Carolina have any 

The Review, in these paragraphs, does not attempt 
to answer Major Craven's direct question; for the 
wayfaring man knows the correct answer. 

lint The Review does intend at this time to dis- 
cuss the proposition that North Carolina will have 
to continue to import men from other sections to do 
many of its most important pieces of work and its 
contribution to the arts and letters and sciences will 
never reach full measure unless it sets more definitely 
ahoui the training of the brains of its sons and 
daughters which they possess in unquestioned abun- 


Architecture and Roads 

What we have in mind is typically illustrated in 
Major Craven's examples — architecture and roads. 
Recently we made a painstaking examination of the 
catalogues of the various institutions of higher learn- 
ing in" North Carolina and found — it was no dis- 
covery, for we already knew the fact — that not a 
single institution in the list offered courses in Ar- 
chitecture. Prom our acquaintance with the Uni- 
versity library and other North Carolina libraries we 
knew that no college in the State possessed as many as 
10(1 volumes on tin' subject : whereas, an institution 
like Columbia University has a definite school of Ar- 
chitecture, and the Avery Library of Architecture 
(a part of the main library of Columbia) contained 
15,000 volumes in the year 1890, and has been sup- 
plemented annually by the income from a $25,000 
endowment fund in addition to generous appropria- 
tions from University funds, not to mention the ar- 
chitectural resources of the Xew York Public Library 
and the infinite sweep of buildings and streets of 
America's greatest and richest city. 


Not a New Question 

'I'he question which Major Craven asked concern- 
ing roads was in no sense new. While the catalogues 
of a half dozen colleges in Ni rth Carolina show that 
courses in civil engineering or surveying are offered, 
only three make mention of highway engineering. 

Two years ago, when the death of the late Chairman 
of the Faculty, M. II. Stacy, made vacant the head- 
ship of the department of highway engineering of the 
University, and when the future highway require- 
ments of the State were clearly visualized, the au- 
thorities of the University set about filling this un- 
usually important pi sit ion. lint for two years the 

position has had to go unfilled I ause the State of 

North Carolina, while contemplating a $30,000,000 


road prog-ram, was underwriting a maximum salary 
scale for University professors of only $3,500 and the 
University found it impossible to secure for that 
amount a man who was thoroughly competent to take 
charge of the training of future road engineers. And 
at the same time the State was providing a li- 
brary fund of only $110 per year for the accumula- 
tion of books, and journals, and the infinite data of 
road engineering ! We do not know what the Uni- 
versity 's departmental appropriation for apparatus 
and laboratory equipment was, but we do know that 
through sheer lack of State support it was far too 
small to contribute materially to the training of the 
complete engineer! Happily the last legislature made 
it possible to raise the salary scale and as a result the 
position will be filled in September. 


Saturated Solutions Are Needed 

What we are attempting to say is the same thing 
that we have constantly been saying in these columns 
for the past year. North Carolina needs to put thou- 
sands of dollars where she has been putting hundreds 
into the training of her sons and daughters. If they 
are to do the thousand big jobs that need doing today. 
if the arts and letters and the sciences and a varied 
and fundamentally sound learning are to flourish as 
they should in a highly cultured civilization, instruc- 
tion, and equipment, and laboratories, and libraries 
must be provided not in homeopathic doses, but in 
full measure; and the brains of these future builders 
of the State must not be exposed to a mere smatter- 
ing of knowledge, but they must be steeped in a com- 
pletely saturated solution. 

This, Major Craven, is what is lacking, rather than 
the gray matter itself ! 

President Connor Points the Way 

In his discussion of the function of the State and 
the alumni in furnishing forth the enriched Univer- 
sity of which we have been speaking and for which 
every alumnus should work. President Connor, in 
his address to the alumni, threw out the following 
challenges : 

The University may not look to its alumni for its build- 
ings, its equipment, ami its maintenance; it is unquestion- 
ably the duty of the State, and of the State alone, to build, 
equip, and support its institutions in all of their ordinary 
needs. Beyond these fields, however, lie other fields of varied 
activities necessary for rounding out a complete Univer- 
sity life, for enriching its campus, and for meeting the chal- 
lenge of the State to a larger program of development and 
service into which the alumni may enter. Within these fields 
are such activities as endowments for specific professorships, 
for graduate fellowships, for special publications, for lecture 
ships in extra university fields, the enrichment of the library, 
the beautification of the campus, the extension and improve- 
ment of student activities, and other similar fields which do 
not fall necessarily within the sphere of the State's duty. 
There are no more urgent notes in our challenge to the State 
to an enlarged program of development and service than the 
call to interpret scholarship through endowment of adequate 
fellowships in graduate work, coupled with a University 
press to carry the results of that scholarship to the world, 
'without which we can never develop here a real modern Uni- 
versity; no mere urgent note than the call to interpret civic 
virtue through the endowment of professorships of city plan 

ning, city-building, city government, while our towns and cities 
are small enough to have their future growth directed along 
right lines ; no more urgent call than to interpret the Uni- 
versity 's relation to standards of beauty through the endow- 
ment of chairs of music, fine arts, and architecture. There is 
no lack of opportunities for the alumni to join hands with 
the State in developing this newer and greater University. The 
door is open, and the challenge to enter is to all. Never was 
the need so great, never was the time so ripe, never was the 
call so insistent. 

The Library Passes the 100,000 Mark 

Two hundred and twenty-one years after the found- 
ing of the Bray Library at Bath (the first to be 
founded in the State) and one hundred and twenty- 
seven years after the laying of the corner stone of the 
Old East building (the first, to be erected on the 
campus of the University), North Carolina has finally 
achieved the distinction of having built up within 
her borders a library of 100,000 volumes — the li- 
brary of the University, which, on June 15, 1921, 
passed this mark and began to climb from 100,000 
to 1,000,000 which it must attain if the University is 
to become the dominant University of the South and 
the State is to be placed in the list of those common- 
wealths which give due consideration to the value of 
books in the life of an educated citizenship. 

To revert again to the theme presented us by 
Major Craven, The Review can imagine there is 
some connect ion between this record and the neces- 
sity of having to resort to New York and Baltimore 
for experts in the fields of engineering and architec- 

Although the State has taken twenty-two decades 
to achieve this result, there is ground for optimism 
in the fact that 61,507 of these 100,000 volumes have 
been added within the past two decades, and that 
39,738 of the 61,507 have been added since June 15, 
1911 — ten years ago. North Carolina's book curve, 
which, for two centuries, could scarcely be distin- 
guished from a straight line, has, latterly, taken a 
sharp turn upward ! 

Quarters for Women Students Assured 

An announcement which many alumni will re- 
ceive with pleasure was made by President Chase at 
a recent meeting of the faculty to the effect that the 
Archer and Boberson houses, on Columbia street 
had been purchased by the University and would be 
placed at the disposal of the women students of the 
University during 1921-22. 

As many alumni know, the buildings will accom- 
modate fifty-odd roomers and the dining room of 
the Archer house has a capacity of sixty. In secur- 
ing this property the University adds definitely to its 
campus possessions and solves, temporarily, and hap- 
pily, one of its most difficult problems. 

We Respectfully Suggest: 

1. That in the future the wonderful sweep of shaded 
campus be utilized for the serving of a buffet lunch- 
eon on Alumni Day or at least a tea or something of 
the sort at the supper hour. Under the present ar- 
rangement the returning alumnus is driven into Ger- 
rard Hall for a three-hour session of speech-making 



and is literally nailed down at the luncheon table, 
with the result that he spends the greater part of 
Alumni Day in fixed spots, rather than circulating 
easily and freely among faculty and alumni whom he 
has come back home to see. 

2. That the ceremonies of induction into Phi Beta 
Kappa be taken out of the commencement exercises 
where they are totally submerged and be given some 
distinctive place in regular term with exercises ap- 
propriate to the occasion. Other institutions give this 
event wide and effective publicity as well as make it 
ail incentive to high scholarship on the part of the 
student body. 

3. That the program of awarding degrees be so 
changed as to effect a material reduction in the time 
now devoted to it. 

4. That future senior classes be urged to attend 
their commencement exercises. They might also at- 
tend the alumni exercises and thereby more quickly 
acquire an understanding of the relations which they 
should bear to the University as alumni.

Stacy Memorial Proposed 

A memorial to the late Marvin H. Stacy, Dean of 
the University during the administration of Pres- 
ident Graham, was proposed by the class of 1916 at 
the meeting of the alumni on Alumni Day and of- 
ficial authorization was given the class by the As- 
sociation to carry out the idea along such lines as 
the class might adopt. It was proposed that the class 
set $25,000 as a minimum limit and that the period 
of raising the amount should be five years. The re- 
quest of the class was enthusiastically endorsed and 
all alumni are urged to give the matter their heart- 
iest support. 


Thank You for the Compliment 

One of the most pleasing incidents of the business 
meeting of the General Alumni Association was the 
passage of the resolution offered by C. U. Harris, of 
Raleigh, expressing appreciation of the University 
News Letter. Professor Branson, guiding genius of 
the publication, had just started for the University 
of California, where he is to teach in the summer ses- 
sion. In his absence, we say thank you for the com- 
pliment, and will pass the resolution on to our ap- 
preciated and appreciative campus contemporary. 


Those Who Come or Go 

Reference to the accounts of Alumni Daj and com- 
mencement appearing elsewhere will prove of par- 
ticular interest to ajumni who in r nt years have 

followed the careers of li. I). \Y. Connor, Albert Cox, 
•I. P. Royster. Louis Graves, and J. II. Ilanford. 

Connor, '99, after years of distinguished service as 
Secretary of the Board of Trustees of the Universitj 
and Secretary of the North Carolina Historical Com- 
mission, gives up the presidency of the General Al- 
umni Association and conies fresh from a year of 
graduate study at Columbia University, to a Kenan 
professorship of History and Government. 

Cox, '04, former superior court judge, colonel in 
the late war, and leader among the younger genera- 
tion of alumni, takes up the presidency of the Gen- 

eral Alumni Association to direct the 10,000 former 
students in their program of effort to make Alma 
Mater the great Southern university she is destined 
to be. 

Royster, graduate of Wake Forest, and former 
professor of English in the University, returns to 
Carolina as Kenan Professor of English after seven 
years of scholarly work in the University of Texas. 

Graves, '02, son of the late Ralph H. Graves, mathe- 
matician, comes back to the campus that has known 
him from childhood and esteems him as former quar- 
ter back, tennis champion, captain in the overseas 
service, and journalist. He assumes the director- 
ship of the news service of the University and will 
give instruction in journalism. 

Hanford, seven years professor of English, teacher 
of wide scholarship and rare personal charm, leaves 
a host of well wishers to fill a high position in the de- 
partment of English of the University of Michigan. 


Building Program Gets Underway 

With the ending of commencement, the building 
program of the University gets definitely underway, 
the plans for the Building Committee having been 
heartily approved by the full Board of Trustees on 
June 14. and a contract involving $1,100,000 awarded 
one day later to T. C. Thompson and Company of 
Charlotte. According to the terms of the contract all 
construction and labor will be furnished by the com- 
pany and work will begin immediately. The exten- 
sion of the railroad to a point back of the campus, 
the construction of faculty houses, and the erection of 
five or six dormitories, together w 7 ith classroom build- 
ings for Language, Law, History and Social Science, 
arc included in the program as well as the enlarge- 
ment of Swain Hall and the extension of the power 

And thus, as these buildings spring up to the 
south of Cameron Avenue, a new chapter in the phys- 
ical history of the University is begun. 


Going to Study Further 

What do members of the graduating class do the 
first year out of college? The Review has no statis- 
tics of previous class records, but it has the prognos- 
tication of an unusually thoughtful, observant member 
of 1 IH2 1 as to what his classmates will do in 1921-22; 
namely, that 60 per cent of them will be in graduate 
or professional schools this fall. 

This estimate may lie too high, probably is; but it 
is none the less significant. It means two things: 
That the atmosphere of the campus is the sort to in- 
spire men to equip themselves fully for the tasks of 
the new day; and that the jobs requiring men of spe- 
cial training are more and more going to be filled by 
University graduates. 

The influence of the graduate school thus begins 
to make itself felt. 


President Butler on Alumni 

President Nicholas Murray Butler, of Columbia 
University, recently set forth his intimate opinion 
about the relation of alumni to their alma mater. The 
occasion was the annual meeting of the alumni of 
Columbia of New England, and some of his observa- 



tions are passed on here to the alumni for their care- 
ful consideration. 

At the outset President Butler emphasized the 
fact that a university has a membership composed of 
four distinct classes of persons — trustees, faculty, 
students and alumni — and that the alumni were just 
as essential to the complete functioning of the uni- 
versity as any one of the other three. 

□ □ □ 
Keeping Informed the First Essential 

The first essential to good alumniship is to be in- 
formed. Says President Butler: 

I should say that the very first duty of the alumnus to his 
university is to be sure that he understands it, to be sure that 
he keeps himself in touch with it, and keeps himself informed 
by the various avenues that are provided to us all, as to the 
developments of policy, of changes of organization, or inter- 
esting happenings in the world of scholarship, of letters, or of 

It is very important that the alumni should not lose that 
touch, because when they lose touch they begin to lose the 
capacity fully to represent their university. Lip loyalty and 
the mere outbursts of enthusiasm which come to us all on a few 
important ceremonial occasions, are not enough. What we 
need is the power fully to represent Columbia, Harvard, Yale, 
Cornell, or whatever it may be, in the course of a long life 
at the bar, in medicine, in the service of the Christian church 
or in business, to keep the university spirit as an ideal, and. 
so far as practical, to keep the university method in operation, 
so that each one of the ten thousand or twenty thousand who 
bear the degrees and wear the colors of a given university may 
really continue to represent it and to express its life in some 
one of the myriad ways that are possible. 


Maintain University Ideals 

The Review would acknowledge, if pressed, that it 
has emphasized other duties than those stressed by 
President Butler. It has urged giving — through the 
Graham Memorial, the Loyalty Fund, scholarships, 
fellowships, wills, life insurance policies, etc. — and it 
will stick to this in the future ; for the necessity is 
greater than ever if the University background is to 
be completely filled out and properly enriched. It 
has also hammered away on the necessity of alumni 
lending full support to legislative programs, with, it 
believes, splendid results. But it pauses here to 
throw the spot light on the alumnus as he lives his 
life in his community. It insists that in the course of 
his life he keep the University spirit as an ideal, that 
he keep the University method in operation, that he 
truly represent the University and the things for 
which it stands; for it is only in this way that the 
citizenship as a whole can lie brought to understand 
the value of this great institution of learning to the 
State, and the limitless, beneficent service which it 
can render. 

□ □ □ 

Ohio and Michigan Move Forward 

Now that the sessions of the legislatures of a num- 
ber of the central western states have adjourned, sta- 
tistics concerning the appropriations of the state uni- 
versities in them are available. In spite of the de- 
pression in business, the legislatures have continued 
their liberal support -to the institutions as evidenced 
in the case of Ohio State and Michigan. Ohio State 

receives $4,475,448 for maintenance for the next bien- 
nium and a mill tax of $1,800,000 for new buildings. 
In addition to this amount $390,000 from funds pre- 
viously appropriated is available together with $1,- 
000,000 raised by the alumni for a stadium. 

Under the leadership of President Burton, the Uni- 
versity of Michigan receives $4,800,000 for buildings 
for the biennium, and as a result of an increase in 
the mill-tax from three-eighths to three-fifths, the 
annual maintenaee fund is increased from $1,687,500 
to $2,700,000, to which is to be added student fees, 
gifts, and income from endowment funds. 


The Year 

The year just closed though outstandingly an al- 
umni year and through the alumni and the people 
a year of great building plans, has also been a year 
of real progress in the interior University. 

The School of Public "Welfare has been definitely 
organized and committed to the able deanship of Dr. 
H. W. Odum. 

The coaching system of varsity teams has been 
placed on an all-year basis under the masterful di- 
rection of Mr. W. McK. Fetzer. Championships 
were won in baseball under Fetzer and basketball 
under Major Boye. 

The Tar Heel and Magazine have had the livest 
years of publication history. The very growth of the 
Tar Baby makes it imperative that it either dissociate 
itself from the name of the student body or be re- 
sponsible to the student body. 

Debate has held its own in two intercollegiate vic- 
tories out of three debates and the Mangum Medal 
has been restored to its pristine glory. 

The student body has met congestion in fine spirit 
and co-operated under able student leadership with 
the central executive of a hundred strategic fighting 
groups enlisted to liberate boys and girls congested 
in the colleges and the insane crowded in the jails. 

The senior class proposed and the student body 
adopted the plan of having the student body instead 
of only the senior class elect the president of the 
student body and student honor council. 

The German Club and social organizations have ad- 
vanced in their last year's acceptance of responsibility 
for the tone and conduct of the dances. The respon- 
sibility for the commencement dances has largely 
been assumed this year by the senior class and its 
social leaders. 

Through the vision, faith, and energy of Dean 
Bradshaw and with the financial help of some mem- 
bers of the class of 1916 and other generous alumni, 
four University students were sent as elected dele- 
gates from the student body to the intercollegiate 
student conference held at Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology to consider undergraduate problems of 
government, honor, athletics, and publications. The 
reports of these delegates stimulated a wholesome in- 
trospection and discussion of campus government and 

If the year just closed emphasizes any one need 
next to the need of places in which to eat, sleep, and 
learn, it is the need of a place in which 1,500 men 
can gather, get facts first hand rather than through 
rumor, and there assembled together integrate the 
ideals and spirit of the University. The growth and 
congestion of the last two years makes imperative 
and places next on the building list of the Univer- 
sity an adecpiate chapel and student assembly hall. 



Spring Athletic Success 

The winter and spring athletic seasons have been 
among the best the University has ever known. Bas- 
ketball and baseball teams made unusual records; 
the track squad rose above great difficulties and ac- 
quitted itself well: the tennis team, playing for the 
first time in several years an adequate schedule, show- 
ed encouraging promise; and the freshman basketball 
and baseball teams were both successful in winning a 
majority of their contests and in starting the careers 
of numbers of likely looking athletes. Through all 
these sports the quality of sportsmanship has been 
uniformly high. 

Varsity basketball and baseball teams this winter 
and spring rank close to the top in Carolina athletic 
history. Captain Carlyle Shepard's basketball squad, 
ably coached by Major Frederick W. Boye, was un- 
questionably the best in North Carolina ; and cer- 
tainly ranked no lower than second best in all the 
area from Washington to the far south. It was 
a group of artists, nothing less; the sheer beauty 
ami skill of its play has written a new chapter in 
basketball at the University, and it is also a pleasure 
to add that in no game did this Carolina team make 
as many folds as its opponent. Fouls are the result, 
generally, of awkwardness and over-anxiety ; this team 
was never awkward and rarely over-anxious. 

Captain "Lefty'" Wilson's baseball team made the 
best record of a decade, maybe longer than that. It 
won from all the teams in the state, from the best 
teams in Virginia, and from several teams to the north 
and to the south. Sixteen victories to four defeats 
and two tie games tells the story in itself, but can 
give no picture of the power of the attack of this 
1921 team, which in nearly every game this year 
came from behind to win and always by hard, clean- 
■ -lit hitting. 

□ □ □ 

The Director of Athletics 

The Review is not seeking to over-emphasize the 
mere winning of games, much as it enjoys a victory. 
But it dues call attention to the records because it be- 
lieves that there is reason for the satisfactory results. 
Behind the teams, behind the squads, spreading 
throughout all athletics at the University, including 
especially the administrative side, the presence of a 
firm hand at the helm has already made itself felt. 
It is the hand of the Director of Athletics. William 
McK. Petzer. His trained knowledge of what to do 
and how to do it, his quiet authority, and his person- 
ality have gone far toward permeating the entire 
athletic system. The result has been enormously 
healthy. A system, simple but definite and direct, is 
being developed. Already a good start has been 
made and with plenty of material next year and 
especially with his brother. Robert A. Fetzer, associat- 
ed with him. the present Director of Athletics can lead 
University athletics in such a manner as to be of solid 
worth to the institution and to the State. 


The 126th commencement at the University, an All 
Tar Heel event that unquestionably overtopped com- 
mencements of recent years and ranks among the best 
in a century and a quarter, started Sunday. June 12, 
with the baccalaureate sermon by the Rev. Charles E. 
Maddry, corresponding secretary of the Baptist State 
Convention, and the V. M. <'. A. vesper sermon by the 
Rev. W. I). Moss, of the Chapel Hill Presbyterian 
Church; it continued on Monday, June 13, Class Day; 
on Tuesday, June 14, Alumni Day; and it reached its 
climax Wednesday. June 15, when degrees were 
banded to the largest number, of graduates the State 
has ever known. 

Returning to his old home where he was born and 
raised and where he worked his way through college, 
Dr. Maddry ('03) made a powerful appeal to the 
capped and gowned graduates to turn to the religion 
of Jesus Christ as the only source of authority in 
overcoming sin. in the business of every-day living, 
and in the preparation for the future. Gerrard Hall 
was crowded to the last seat and scores of late-comer-; 
had to turn away or to listen through the windows. 

Dr. Maddry took his text from John 6:66-69, dwell- 
ing especially on the words. "Then said Jesus unto 
the twelve. Will ye also go away.'' Then Simon 
Peter answered, him. 'Lord, to whom shall we go? 
Thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe 
and are sure that thou art Christ, the son of the liv- 
ing God'." 

At twilight under the Davie Poplar in the annual 
vesper service of the Y. M. C. A., Dr. Moss, speaking 
to the men and women with whom he has worked all 
during their college career, told them that the world 
needed the development of personality in man. "And 
a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind and a 
covert from the tempest." from Isaiah 32:2 furnished 
the text around which he built up his thesis of the 
fullv rounded man. 

Education for Citizenship is the title of an ex- 
tended article by Drs. J. G. deR. Hamilton and E 
W. Knight in the Historical Outlook (Philadelphia) 
for June, 1921. 


Final class prayers were held in Gerrard Hall Mon- 
day morning. In cap and gown the seniors marched 
into the chapel where the Rev. W. I). Moss, "The 
Parson," led them in the reading, talked to them like 
an elder brother, and gave them his final benediction. 
A brief recess and then came the oratorical contest 
for the Willie P. Mangum medal. President Chase 
presided. The speakers were John H. Kerr, Jr., T. 
C. Taylor, Philip Hettleman, and William H. Bobbitt, 
the cream of a brilliant-speaking class. All had parti 
cipated in intercollegiate debates or oratorical con- 
tests. The decision, announced commencement day, 
went to W. II. Bobbitt; its announcement brought 
forth prolonged applause. 

For the final exercises the seniors gathered late in 
the afternoon in a big circle on the grass under the 
Davie Poplar. President W. R, Berryhill made his 

final talk to tl lass. W. L. Blythe read the class 

history, W. II. Bobbitt announced the class gift, a 
large stone seat to lie placed on the campus, Paul E. 
Greene read the class poem, Jonathan Daniels read 

tl lass prophecy, and Robbins Lowe interpreted the 

class statistics. 

The Di Society won the annual inter-society de- 
bate Tuesday night, the Bingham prize for the best 
s| Ii going to F. A. Grissette. 




Alumni Day, Tuesday, June 14, was not only the 
natural closing of an alumni year in the life of the 
University but was also the crowning of an alumni 
year in the life of the State and in the history of a 
progressive people. The same filial spirit that sent 
them storming the citadels of hard times, pessimism, 
and reaction and fired them crusading from October 
to March for schools, colleges, asylums, and hospitals, 
in June gathered them close again to that heart of 
the State called Chapel Hill. Upwards of six hun- 
dred alumni — perhaps more — were back to take part 
in the alumni reorganization, reunions, luncheons, ban- 
quets, ball games, stunts, and anecdotal fellowship. 

Pass in Review 

In reminiscent procession there come back now 
from Alumni Day glimpses of groups and personal- 
ities, keynotes of addresses, loungings on the campus 
green, drinkings at the old well, visitings to the old 
room, frolics on Emerson Field, renewals of associa- 
tions, and overtones of fealty. The class of 1916 in 
overalls and the class of 1920 in baby caps share with 
the Governor and the Secretary the center of the 

Motley Morehead, '91, toastmaster and laughmaster, 
as masterful as he was redheaded and as witty as he 
is baldheaded; John Tillett, pep-master for 1911; 
Francis Bradshaw, tent-master of 1916 ; and John 
Umstead, '09, enthusiasm-ambassador plenipoten- 
tiary and spirit-at-large extraordinary; all pass in 
alumni review 


Slade passes by and the distinctive fact is whispered 
not that his son will next fall be the fourth in the 
direct line of University succession but that he, J. 
J. Slade, has been in Mexico City for twenty-five years 
and will run back there immediately after commence- 
ment where he is a railroad executive and owner of 
large lumber interests. He has been through all the 
ups and downs of Mexico's topsy-turvy life and rushes 
back to his job. There is something of the graphic in 
his simple words "I am from Mexico," reminiscent 
of the classic answer of Sieves when asked what he 
did during the French Revolutionary Terror: ''I 

Davies. tall, straight, handsome, modest, passes by 
and unconsciously you look around and when he 
speaks at the Di reunion you feel the fine quality of 
the man that had already enlisted your imagination. 
Shepard Bryan speaks at the class reunions and when 
he tells you about his classmates in his gracious, hu- 
morous way you immediately wish that you were a 
member of the class of 1891 unless of course you are 
already a member of a class like say the class of 
1909, than which as Tom Wolfe's saying goes "there 
is none whicher." Dr. Joyner tells of the spirit of 
the struggling University of the late seventies and 
you pray in your heart that the University will hold 
on to its democracy and spiritual tone in the coming 
days of material triumph. George Stephens talks of 
the men of '96 and you know that the giants of those 
days are still making touchdowns and knocking 'em 
over the fence. The soft-voiced Stephens himself is 
still doing such giant swings as projecting the most 
beautiful suburb in the South, east of Charlotte, and 
taking from Mrs. Vanderbilt's capable shoulders the 

ambitious Biltmore development for the consideration 
of some such detail as a million dollars. 

The Alumni Uprising 

Rev. C. P. Coble called on without notice to speak 
for the class of 1901 voices offhand the nobility of 
the uprising of the several thousand alumni and their 
scores of strategic fighting groups in the cause of 
education and progress as the most inspiring fact 
in alumni history, perhaps without a parallel in the 
history of education and now a model for three 
southern states and one mid-eastern state. 

Carter Dalton, '06, Archie Dees, '11, William B. 
Umstead, '16, and Ben Cone, '20, called on to re- 
spond for their classes, in concise, pertinent talks 
all pledged the solid backing of the alumni in any 
movement for the good of the University and the 
State. It was this alumni spirit of a recent enlist- 
ment in a great cause that was the distinguishing 
dynamic of the commencement of 1921. 

Notable Alumni Reunions 

University commencements have been distinguished 
bv Alumni Days in 1911, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1919, and 

The Confederate Reunion 

In 1911 the University's sons who rushed away 
in the sixties to join the Confederate armies were 
back as a remnant company to receive their diplomas 
and the blessings and affection of their Alma Mater 
in a message that is now a classic in southern speech. 

The Class of 1909 in 1914 

In 1914 the class of 1909 back for the first large 
class reunion in commencement history — some fifty 
strong all told — staged a jolly outdoor frolic on the 
athletic field and led an alumni demonstration that 
developed into a spontaneous alumni ovation lasting 
twenty minutes when Secretary of Commerce Red- 
field, pressed the button by unconsciously mention- 
ing in passing the alumni choice for a president on 
that epochal election day, June 2, 1914. 

1905 in 1915 

In 1915 the class of 1905 had the center of the 
alumni stage; and the alumni luncheon, with its 
music, impersonations, clog-dancing, singing, cabaret 
stunts, and acrobatics by students and recent alumni 
was the jolliest luncheon that ever jollied Swain Hall. 

The Sailor Boys in 1916 

Then came 1911 in 1916 — big tent, music, and 
white-suited gobs. Heralded before they arrived by 
their side-splitting "Come-Back" (to which their 
recent "Come Eleven" circular was a roaring suc- 
cessor) the class of 1911, fifty-odd strong, took com- 
mencement, the luncheon, the towti, and the campus, 
and had a big time doing it. Then came the war and 
death and peace. 

The Victory Ensemble 

And with the peace came the victory reunion of 
service men home from camp and battle and hos- 
pital. A goodly number of the 3,000 Carolina men 
in the military and naval service were back and 
joined Secretary Daniels, Col. Cox, Lieut. Col. Aber- 






nethy, and Lieut. Don MacRae in their tribute to the 
55 who would never come back in the spirit 
of the full measure of their going. The war class 
of 1918 came back 55 strong, the clas; ni 1909 with 
$1,000 for the loyalty fund, and the eiass of 1899 
with the largest twenty year reunion on record, 26 
members plus 7 wives. The solid host of 500 and 
more alumni back pledged their loyalty to the newly 
chosen president and his administration. 

The Recent State-Wide Crusade 

Last year Alumni Day was a tame affair. But in 
the year just gone the alumni have had a spiritual 
reawakening. The uprising of the people in the 
cause of .youth and the commonwealth from October 
2 to March's great decision has revealed them in 
arms in the field, hard fighters against all odds for 
Alma Mater and North Carolina. And so it hap- 
pened that the tidal uprising of University alumni 
deposited on the campus shores of commencement 
the largest and in some points the livest alumni oc- 
casion in commencement history. 

1916— Overalls Overall 

The class of 1920 had sixty-one back, the largest 
number that ever returned for a class reunion; 1916 
had 37; 1911, 35; 1906, 10; 1901, 16; 1896, 11; 1891, 
12 (out of 24 graduates some of whom are dead, 
others accounted for by letters, telegrams, and a be- 
lated marriage) ; and 1881, 5. The class of 1920 was 
al times thg snappiest but the class of 1916 was the 
best organized and most consistenly peppy of all. 
They were everywhere together with bells on. The 
class of 1911 was full of life and fun without even 
trying. When veneration is shown to so recent a 
ehiss as 1 SSI it is felt that the University of Battle, 
'49, has passed into a new day. The classes of '81, 
'91, '96, '01, and '06 were small and unnoisy but the 
quality o!' their spirit and personality was impres- 
sive. In their midst were men who handled millions 
of crossties in Mexico, who decided the fate of men on 
trial for their lives, by expert testimony, who explored 
uncharted regions of nephritis, who declined the 
nomination for the mayoralty of Louisville, who were 
veterans of other wars than the World War, and who 
were pioneers in the gigantic war of diabolical chem- 
icals. But the distinguishing feature of the com- 
mencement of 1921 was not the stunt or spiri.t or 
personalities of any one class but the general alumni 
mood of optimism and faith in the University and 
North Carolina. 

The Business Meeting 

The first alumni event was the business meeting of 
the alumni association in Gerrard Hall on Tuesday 
morning. R. D. W. Connor, '99, in his retiring pres- 
idential address, congratulated the alumni on the 
year's demonstration of their organized spirit and 
power in the progress of the University and the 
Stall'. President Chase bespoke the University's 
debt and gratitude to her sons and outlined the build- 
ing plans made possible by their devotion and the 
generous backing of the people of the State. 

John W. Umstead, of the committee appointed a 
year ago to select a full time field secretary of the 
General Alumni Association reported that no selec- 
tion had yet been made and moved the following 
resolution which was unanimously adopted: 

In view of the fact that this association is at present with- 
out a definite constitution and form of organization, and in 
order that a working organization and constitution may be per- 
fe 'ted, it is hereby resolved, 

That, the president appoint with power to act, a committee 
on organization having seven members whose duty it shall be 
(1) To work out a satisfactory constitution for the General 
Alumni Association anl 1 ical Associations; (2) to organize an 
alumni office with full time secretary; (3) to study possible 
programs for the celebration of alumni day at commence- 
ment; and (4) to consider such other alumni activities as the 
Loyalty Fund, the Graham Memorial, the publication of an 
alumni catalogue, etc., as may require special attention in 
order that a well conceived, effective alumni program may be 
perfected and followed by the General Alumni Association. 

It is further resolved, That this committee shall publish the 
constitution and plan of organization in The Alumni Review 
for October, 1921, that copies shall be mailed to the alumni, 
that suggested amendments be published in the January issue 
so that they may be acted upon by the association at its 
meeting 12 months hence, and that ballots for such officers as 
may be called for by the plan of organization be mailed the 
alumni by the alumni secretary at such time as the committee 
may deem best. 

Colonel Cox Elected President 

J. Y. Joyner, '81, nominated Col. Albert L. Cox, 
'04, to succeed R. D. W. Connor, '99, as president of 
the Alumni Association. Mr. Cox was unanimously 
elected. No election of a secretary was held. Presi- 
dent Connor appointed the following committee : A. 
L. Cox, chairman, L. R. Wilson, Charles Weill, W. 
T. Shore, John W. Umstead, Jr., W. N. Everett, and 
E. R. Rankin. 

The Stacy Memorial 

Win. B. Umstead, '16, speaking in the name of the 
class of 1916 proposed a memorial fund to the late 
Dean Marvin Hendrix Stacy. The class of 1916 re- 
ceived the unanimous backing of the Alumni Associa- 
tion in its proposal to raise a minimum of $25,000 
for this memorial. The business meeting then re- 
solved into reunions. 

The Luncheon Peps Up 

The Alumni Luncheon was featured by the pep- 
setting pace of the classes of 1920, 1916, and 1911, the 
band-led procession of alumni in Swain Hall, the 
mass cheers for Governor Morrison, Josephus Daniels, 
President Chase, Walter Murphy, Lunsford Long, 
the Citizens Committee, and the North Carolina Leg- 
islature, all along with the dinner, as preliminary to 
the brief and lively addresses of Governor Morrison, 
Josephus Daniels, A. M. Scales, Toastmaster More- 
head, Walter Murphy, and C. A. Jonas. 

Morehead — Daniels — Morrison — Scales 
— Murphy — Jonas 

Governor Morrison in a powerful manner empha- 
sized the high spots of progress in the last legislative 
year. To the introduction by the toastmaster that 
his name was carved on the tombstone of the Cen- 
tral Powers, Mr. Daniels responded with the pro- 
posal of a war memorial to the Univei'sity 's sons lost 
in the World War, to bear the inscription, "They 
died that freedom might live and not because they 
were afraid not to fight." A. M. Scales spoke in a 




mood of valiant optimism and raised the roof when 
he counter-balanced the fact that we have a George 
Harvey in London by the fact that we have Admiral 
Sims on the way home. Walter Murphy was intro- 
duced by the toastmaster as "one of the most re- 
nowned notaries public in the State." Mr. Murphy, 
himself champion of progress, told of the action of 
the legislature as a decisive step and turning point 
• in the life of the University and the State. The talk 
that went straight to the hearts of all present was the 
talk of C. A. Jonas, '02, who told in a way eloquent 
in its simplicity and sincerity of his struggles to 
earn his way and his diploma at the same time, crowd- 
ing four years into three for the lack of time. When 
he asked feelingly "How could I do other than love 
a University that would help me do that?" the en- 
tire assembly was swept into a mighty tribute to 
the man and the long line of self-help men lie worth- 
ily represents. 

The Ball Game 

The alumni then scattered to the campus, to the 
meeting of the board of trustees, to the ball field 
where the class of lf)l!(), having previously defeated 
the class of 1916, battled the redoubtable faculty nine 
to an 8 to 8, 8-inning tie. Game called on account of 
near-sunstrokes, near-casualties, and near-supper- 

The Plays 

In the evening the Carolina Playmakers brilliantly 
eapped a series nf triumphs during the year in many 
towns of tin! State by entertaining the alumni mosl 
delightfully with the plays, "When Witches Ride" 
and " In Dixon 's Kitchin." 

The Reception 

After the play the president, faculty, and their 
wives received the alumni, parents, and friends in 

the University Library. Around twelve o'clock the 
Library lights went out on the happy ending of a 
happy day that closed and crowned an epoch-mak- 
ing alumni year in North Carolina history. 

Twenty-five alumni of the University received 
license in the examinations conducted by the State 
Board of Pharmacy in June. The list follows: 

E. G. Arps, Plymouth; W. P. Baker, Raeford; B. 
D. Black, Marsh vi lie; .Miss Minerva Bingham, Ruther- 
wood ; P. G. Brooks, Siler City: L. I). Cain, Payette- 
ville; R. P. Carswell, Winston-Salem: J. L. Cobb, 
Mt. Olive; C. B. Davis, Southport; -I. P. Gamble, 
Waxhaw; C. L. Guion, Monroe; H. N. Guion, Union- 
ville; H. W. Harris, Catawba; B. L. -Jordan, Aber- 
deen; C. C. Layton, Sanford; N. 0. .McDowell, Scot- 
land Nock: W. W. .Miller, Wallace; E. L. Padgett, 
Marion; .1. C. .Mills, Rutherf ordton ; John McBane, 
Burlington ; 1'. I,. Senter, Raleigh; A. T. Turnmire, 
Granite Falls; G. S. Wilson, Gastonia; W. C. Wrike, 
Randleman ; -1. S. While, .Mt. Airy. 

Alexander B. Andrews, attorney at law at Raleigh, 
is the author of a statistical study of the Per Capita 
Cost of Courts of the United Slates. The pamphlet 
(Mitchell Printing Co.. Raleigh) contains a general 
discussion of pei- capita costs together with six 
tables which show in complete detail the cost of main- 
taining the various branches of the judicial systems 
of the various states and the federal government. 

Dr. .1. .M. Hell, of the department of Chemistry, 

has recently n ived an award of $500 from the I '. 

M. Warren Research Fund of the American Academy 
of Arts ami Sciences to defray Hie cost of apparatus 
for the determination of latenl heats of fusion of 
the nitratoluenes. Investigation was begun upon this 
subject by Dr. Dell during the war at the request of 

the National Research < louncil. 




Speaking at the University for the first time since 
his resumption of editorial duties in North Carolina, 
former Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels de- 
livered the baccalaureate address of the 126th com- 
mencement and called upon the 173 graduates receiv- 
ing degrees, the largest class in the history of the 
University, to follow conscience and conviction regard- 
less of convention and precedent. 

The address, delivered by Mr. Daniels with his 
characteristic power, was in harmony with the scrip- 
tural injunction, know all things, prove all things, 
and came as a fitting climax to the college career of 
a class which, in its stay on the campus, had witnessed 
the passing of the old career and had developed to a 
high degree the ability to think, a fact abundantly 
evidenced by the class throughout the year, and par- 
ticularly so in recent theses, debates, and commence- 
ment orations. 

Other features lending distinction to the exercises 
were the final word of advice of Governor Morrison 
to the graduates after they had received their diplomas 
and the conferring of honorary degress upon Major 
William Cain, Kenan professor emeritus of Mathe- 
matics; Dr. B. C. Brooks, Superintendent of Public 
Instruction ; Miss Emily McVea, President of Sweet 
Briar College ; and Mrs. Mary Mendenhall Hobbs, of 
Guilford College. 

Governor Morrison Speaks 

Following the custom of his predecessors, Gov- 
ernor Morrison gave the graduates a final word of 
advice in which he urged them to stick to that which 
had already been tried and found true — advice which 
he had given other graduating classes recently, and 
which, by rare coincidence, seemingly was at vari- 
ence with the theme of the baccalaureate address. 

Honorary Degrees Conferred 

Dr. Archibald Henderson, faculty orator of the 
day, was spokesman in the conferring of the honorary 
degrees, and, in fitting phrase, set forth the achieve- 
ments of the four whom the University had called to 
the Hill to receive its highest awards. To Major 
Cain, long-time professor in the University, went the 
title of Doctor of Science, the first to be conferred by 
the University. Dr. Brooks and Miss McVea (the 
second woman to receive it) were awarded the title 
of Doctor of Laws; and Mrs. Mary Mendenhall Hobbs 
was the first woman in North Carolina to receive the 
title of Doctor of Literature. 

The exercises were preceded with the usual com- 
mencement procession led by the seniors, the trus- 
tees, alumni, faculty, with President Chase, former 
Secretary Daniels, Governor Morrison, moving 
through the lane of visitors across the campus. At 
Memorial Hall the procession halted and the plat- 
form group marched in first between open ranks 
of graduates. Reverend W. D. Moss, of the local 
Presbyterian Church, opened with the invocation 
and President Chase introduced former Secretary 

At the conclusion of the address, President Chase 
made the announcements about changes in the fac- 
ulty. Of special interest was fhe announcement of 
the retirement from the headship of the department 
of chemistry of Dr. F. P. Venable, who, while retain- 

ing his position as Kenan professor of Chemistry, is 
succeeded in the headship of the department by Dr. 
J. M. Bell. Special interest also attached to the ap- 
pointments by reason of the fact that Dr. James 
Finch Royster, former professor of English in the 
University, but recently professor of English in the 
University of Texas, returns to the University as 
Kenan professor of English Philology; and R. D. 
W. Connor, former Secretary of the Board of Trus- 
tees, and Secretary of the North Carolina Historical 
Commission, joins the faculty as Kenan professor of 
History and Government. 

Promotions in Faculty 

Associate professor S. E. Leavitt becomes full professor 
of Spanish. 

Assistant professo'rs C. A. Hibbard, G. A. Harrer, Frank 
P. Graham, and Charles M. Baker, all become associate pro-

For New York alumni the most interesting' episode 
of the last few months was the visit of the Univer- 
sity baseball team to New York for a series of games 
there. Special reservation of space in the stadium of 
the College of the City of New York, with a white 
and blue flag flying above it, was made for North 
Carolinians, and a number turned out to see the vic- 
tory over City College by the score of 3-1. The New 
Yorkers present were much entertained by the shouts 
that went up now and then from this section of the 
grandstand when the men from Chapel Hill lined 
out base hits. 

Ex-Justice Augustus Van Wyek, who was at Chapel 
Hill when the Civil War broke out, is still as hale and 
hearty as when he was a youngster, and he is always 
active in every movement of the alumni in New 
York. He turned up as the leader of the alumni 
group at the theatre party given to the baseball team 
at the performance of "Tip-Top," the night of the 
team's arrival. May 4. In the lobby of the Hotel 
Cumberland, before the game, the Judge talked 
eagerly with the members of the team, and told 
them stories of his college days. 

Judge A. W. Graham, '68, attended the game with 
the City College, and was one of the most indus- 
trious shouters there. Other alumni present were: 
Dr. Charles Baskerville, Dr. Holland Thompson, Col- 
onel George B. Pond, Major Ernest Graves, Isaac F. 
Harris, Dr. H. C. Cowles, Louis Graves, Dr. Reston 
Stevenson, Francis A. Gudger, M. C. S. Noble, Jr., 
and R, D. W. Connor. 

John Tillett was another attendant at the City 
College game. He arrived in New York just in 
time to be there. His presence was the source of 
much excitement on the part of a elderly negro who 
dashed into the grandstand just after the game ended, 
rushed up to the North Carolina group, and ex- 
claimed : 

' ' I heerd some Charlotte boys wnz up here ! ' ' 

"There's Mr. John Tillett going out of the gate 
over there," one of the alumni told him, pointing to 
the disappearing figure of the Charlotte man. 

"Fo' the love o' Gawd — one o' Mister Chaidie 
Tillett 's sons!" cried the negro in delight. 

He ran off in the direction of the south exit, loudly 
proclaiming that if he didn't see Mister Charlie Til- 
lett 's son his life would be no longer worth living. 

Colonel George B. Pond is stationed in New York 
as the representative of the United States Army in 
all matters pertaining to the New York National 
Guard. He lias an office in the Municipal Building 
and visits the armories in the city several times a 
week. Colonel Pond is six feet five inches high and 
makes a magnificent figure in his uniform when he 
walks along Broadway or Fifth Avenue. He towers 
above the strolling crowd, and people crane their 
necks at him. 

One of the attentive spectators at the game with 
the City College was Miss Grace Cowles, the daughter 
of Dr. H. C. Cowles. She is a beautiful girl of twelve 
and was the recipient of marked admiration from 
the alumni present. Young Miss Cowles has decided 
musical talent; and her budding talent for story- 
writing has recently won her distinction in the large 
school which she attends in New York. She is going 
to Vassar when she reaches the college age. About 
five or six years from now she will doubtless be vis- 
iting Chapel Hill at commencement time. 

Robert 0. Holt, '81, is a resident of New York 
now. He lives at 725 Riverside Drive. His nephew. 
Earl Holt of Oak Ridge, visits him now and then. 
This fact, however, was not known to the contem- 
poraries of Earl until Mr. Holt told them of it last 
week. They are getting ready to send a protest to 
the famous baseball star, rebuking him for not let- 
ting them know when he comes to New York. 

Isaac F. Harris, '()(), has embarked in the manufact- 
ure of vitamines, with his main place of business at 
Tuckahoe in the suburbs of New York. He is making 
a great success of it; already he has had to double 
his manufacturing equipment. 

Major Ernest Graves, '00, has retired from the 
Army and just now is living at 138 East 37th Street. 
He has written a book on football entitled: "The 
Line Man's Bible." A magazine, "The American 
Boy," also announces an article from Major Graves's 
pen. Not long ago "Big Bill" Edwards, the cele- 
brated Princeton player, in an article published in a 
leading magazine, nominated Major Graves for a 
place on the all-time all-American football team. 

Francis A. Gudger, '98, is the leading spirit of the 
Goldwyn Pictures Corporation. This concern is 
owned by the duPont interests of Wilmington, Dela- 
ware. Mr. Gudger, who was connected with the du- 
Ponts at the time they acquired control, was des- 
ignated by them to conduct the business. 

Both A. W. Haywood, '04, and T. Holt Haywood, 
'07, live in the country now, the former at Scars- 
dale and the latter at Glen Ridge, N. J. A. W. Hay- 
wood has a daughter two years old; T. Holt Hay- 
wood has a daughter four years old and a son one 
year old. 

Major William A. Murphy, '01, is a surgeon in 
the Army now and lives at the Hotel Rovalton at 
West 44th Street. 

James A. Gwyn, '96, has left New York and set- 
tled down in Wilmington, Delaware. He is connec- 
ted with the du Pont de Nemours Company. 

Julian E. Ingle runs a printing business at 165 
Williams Street. 

Dr. John A. Ferrell is with the International 
Health Commission at 61 Broadway. Dr. Ferrell has 
made a notable record with this body. He and Mrs. 
Ferrell were among the alumni at the recent dance 
of the North Carolina Society at the Waldorf-Astoria. 

Two of the most active and enthusiastic i.lumni of 
the University in New York are Junius Parker and 
George Gordon Battle. They took a leading part in 
arranging the theatre party for the baseball team. 

Julian S. Carr, Jr., head of the Durham Hosiery 
Mills, spends a great part of his time in New York 
now. The other alumni do not see as much of him 
as they would like. The rumor is that he works 
too hard. Associated with him, in the New York 
office of the Durham Hosiery Mills is another al- 
umnus, Wesley Harris. 

The engagement of Morehead Patterson, son of 
Rufus L. Patterson, one of the well known North 
Carolina alumni of New York, and Miss Elsie Parsons, 
was announced recently. 

George Thomas has his place of business at 346 
Broadway. When he writes a letter now he signs 
his name W. G. Thomas. The alumni who were in 
college with him knew him simply as George Thomas, 
and many of them receiving letters with this new 
signature are puzzled at first as to who it is. 

Louis Graves, '02. 





An alumnus of. the University living in Baltimore

High lights in the building situation at the Univer- 
sity as The Review goes to press immediately after 
eommeneement are as follows: 

1. The contract for $1,100,000 worth of construc- 
tion has been let to T. C. Thompson and Company, of 

2. H. P. Alan Montgomery, full time architect and 
member of the Atwood organization, has been at 
Chapel Hill for a month with a force of draughtsmen 
and is well advanced in plans for the buildings. 

3. A force of convicts loaned by the state is at 
work on the railroad track running from Carrboro 
to the building area on the campus. 

4. The great bulk of the material for construction 
(lumber, brick, cement, etc.), has already been bought. 

5. The labor force of the Thompson company, 
running probably as high as 250 men, will be in Chapel 
Hill by the time this copy of The Review reaches 
its readers; the labor camp which they will occupy 
has already been built. 

6. W. N. Everett has been added to the building 
committee of the trustees which consists now, besides 
Mr. Everett, of J. Bryan Grimes, John Sprunt Hill, 
George Stephens, Haywood Parker, President Chase, 
and C. T. Woollen. 

7. The Archer house on Columbia Avenue and the 
Roberson house immediately adjoining will together 
be used as a center for women students. 

The Scope of the General Plan 

In the main the general plan of building is the 
same as previously announced. The Thompson com- 
pany, acting as agents of the building committee, 
will build first six faculty houses and several other 
private houses; will then swing forward to the five 
dormitories; then to the dining hall; and finally to 
the three teaching buildings. Water, light, heating, 
and sewerage construction will proceed along with 
the buildings. 

The schedule looks to the completion of the Steele 
dormitory (started last year and not a part of the 
building provided for by the last General Assembly) 
by September 1. The first of the five new dormitories 
will be ready January 1, 1922; the second March 1, 
1922; the third June 1, 1922, and so on in about the 
relative time. Each of these dormitories will hold 72 
students ; the five will provide space for 300. 

Charles T. Woollen, secretary of the building com- 
mittee, confirms the news in the May Review that 
there has been and will be no trouble about obtaining 
money for the construction. The Council of State has 
provided as much as has been necessary and reports 
that as additional sums are needed they will be forth- 

The general situation in June is that virtually all 
the preliminary work has been completed, the main 
policies for handling the largest and most important 
building projects ever planned at any State institu- 
tion in North Carolina have been agreed upon, most 
of the material has been bought, the architectural 
plans are well along, the contract has been let, actual 
work has been started, and pretty much everything 
has been cleared out of the way for the rapid rushing 
forward of the actual physical construction. All 
hands are driving forward to the idea of completing 
the work by January, 1923, and the building com- 
mittee and the contractors are agreed that this can 
be done by hard, fast work. 

Thompson Gets the Contract 

The Board of Trustees at its commencement meet- 
ing awarded the contract for $1,100,000 worth of 
construction to T. C. Thompson and Company, of 
Charlotte. The award followed unusually keen com- 
petition among builders from all over the State and 
from many parts of the country. More than 30 firms 
put in bids for the work and most of them sent repre- 
sentatives to Chapel Hill to push their claims. With 
scores of representatives of companies furnishing ma- 




ferial, insurance men, and salesmen of many sorts, 
t lie Alumni Building, which is headquarters for the 
Atwood organization and the building committee, has 
been pretty well besieged, 

Under the form of the contract arranged by the 
committee the contractors will furnish the labor sup- 
ply, will do the actual building, and will do all that a 
contracting rirm ever does except buy the material 
and furnish the money. The materials have been ac- 
quired, and will lie in the future, by Mr. Atwood in 
consultation with the Thompson Company and the 
building committee. Before each building is started 
tin' contractors will guarantee the cost. This figure 
will be checked by Mr. Atw 1 and changed if neces- 
sary; in event of disagreement a third party will be 
called in to decide. 

The building committee thinks that the form of 
contract is the safest that could be arranged. The 
competition among bidders guaranteed low contrac- 
tors' fees; the double checking by the Atwood organi- 
zation promotes economy; the general plan of localiz- 
ing responsibility makes for speed. The fact too that 
all the work will be done by one company, the com- 
mittee thinks, means economy, speed, and a more busi- 
ness-like result. 

Montgomery Heads Architectural Staff 

II. P. Alan Montgomery, of New York, will have 
charge of the architectural work. He has already been 
in Chapel Hill for more than a month and will give 
his full time to the work until it is finished. With 
him is a force of draughtsmen. Plans for the faculty 
houses are already complete and for other buildings 
are well advanced. Mr. Montgomery has had wide 
experience in and around New York and comes with a 
reputation for beautiful and satisfactory work. Mc- 
Khn, Meade, and White will continue as consulting 

Location of the Buildings 

Six houses for members of the faculty will be built 
along the Pittsboro road, southwest of Chapel Hill, 
in the vicinity of the old Chapel Hill school house. 
Real estate has been active in this vicinity in the past 

six months, eight or ten members of the faculty having 
bought lots in this area, and it appears destined to 
become one of the residential centers of the town. 
The Thompson Company will build six houses here for 
the University; it will also build private homes for Dr. 
Bullitt on the site of the old Episcopal rectory, for 
Prof. Saville on the lot immediately north of Prof. 
George McKie's at the end of Franklin Street, for 
Dr. Greenlaw across Franklin from the Saville lot 
(adjoining Dr. MacNider's), and it will construct the 
new S. A. E. fraternity house on Columbia Avenue 
opposite the Infirmary. 

The three class room buildings, one for law, one for 
history and social science, and one for languages, will 
be located south of the South Building. The great 
bulk of future University teaching buildings will he 
in this area. The dormitories, after long discusion, 
will be placed on the class athletic field, east of Cald- 
well Hall, the medical building. A new class athletic 
field will be constructed beyond Emerson Field. 

Swain Hall, the main dining hall, will be more than 
doubled. Its kitchen and storage facilities will be 
greatly enlarged and new dining space will he built 
adjoining the present building to accommodate an 
additional 500 students. The present capacity is 500 

theoretically; approximately 750 students have 1 a 

eating there for the past two years. 

The contract with T. C. Thompson and Company 
calls for an expenditure of $1,100,000. The sum 
granted by the General Assembly for perm; nt im- 
provements was $1,490,000. The difference between 
the two sums will be used for the construction of the 
railroad (on which 45 convicts are now working) ; 
furniture for the new buildings; departmental equip- 
ment ; repairs on old buildings; the rehabilitation of 
the co-ed quarters; the expenses of the Atwood and 
Thompson organizations; and such matters. 

The decision to use the Archer and Roberson houses 
for a co-ed center is the first definite step the Univer- 
sity has ever taken toward providing quarters for 
women. Hitherto women students have had to find 
rooms as best they could in private homes. With 
the steady increase in numbers — ranging this year 
beyond seventy — the problem has been difficult.

The Morehead Family op North Carolina and 
Virginia, by John Motley Morehead III. Pri- 
vately printed. New York, 1921. 147 pages. 
53 full-page illustrations. 

This interesting' volume, in contents, style, ami 
mechanical execution is an excellent example of 
what a family history ought to be. It has a worthy 
subject, — an historic family, every generation of 
which, from its earliest recorded history to the pres- 
ent, has been represented by men and women of high 
ability, character, and achievements. This subject 
is worthily treated; every page bears evidence of 
painstaking investigation and industry, and the story 
is told in a style that is clear, crisp, and stimulating. 
Paper, illustrations, and binding are all of high qual- 
ity. Taken as a whole, it is the best family history 
in tlic historical literature of North Carolina. 

The author, Major John Motley Morehead III, of 
New York, is a B.S. of the University of North Caro- 
lina, 1891, "the fourteenth of that name to graduate 
from that institution." Major Morehead, himself, 
has had a distinguished career. For twenty-five years 
lie has been closely associated as a chemical and elec- 
trical expert and technical adviser with various large 
interests connected with different branches of the 
acetylene, oxygen, and illuminating gas business, and 
has installed machinery for the production of dif- 
ferent chemical and mechanical processes not only in 
the United Slates, but also in England, Scotland, and 
Germany. During the war with "Germany, he was 
commissioned Major, United States Army General 
Staff, and detailed to the War Industries Board at 
Washington as Chief of the Industrial Gases and Gas 
Products Section, member of the Inter-departmental 
Ammonia Committee, and Secretary of the Explosives 
Division, which branch, at the time of the Armistice, 
was supplying all the Allies with their high explo- 
sives. In November, 1918, he was recommended for 
promotion to a colonelcy, but the order came stopping 
all promotions before his commission could be issued. 
He has held high official positions in various tech- 
nical associations in the United States, England, 
Prance, and Germany, and is also author of the stand- 
ard text-book on "Analysis of Industrial Gases." In 
191."). Major Morehead married Miss Genevieve Mar- 
garet Birkoff of Chicago. They have a beautiful 

home on Long Island, near Rye, called "Blahdwood" 
■ — the name of the ancestral home at Greensboro. 

In his volume on the Morehead family, Major More- 
head has produced a work which is not limited, as 
its title might lead one to suppose, to its interest as 
a family history. As early as the reign of David the 
First of Scotland, Anno 1122, the Muirheads were a 
family of historic importance, and that importance 
has been sustained throughout their sojourn in Eng- 
land, in Virginia, and in North Carolina. The first 
of the family in America was Charles Morehead who 
came to Virginia about 1630, where he probably rep- 
resented the business interests of his father, David 
Morehead, a merchant of London. He was a partic- 
ipant in some of the most important events in the 
early history of Virginia and Maryland. 

John Morehead, fourth of the name, and his wife 
Obedience Motley, came to Rockingham County, N. 
C, in 1798. From this time on, the history of the 
family is intimately associated with the history of the 
political, economic, and educational development and 
progress of North Carolina. "John and Obedience 
Morehead," says the author of the volume, "had a 
large family. All their sons were educated in the 
University of North Carolina, and, in turn, taught 
their sisters." The most distinguished of these sons 
was John Motley Morehead, governor of North Caro- 
lina, and premier among the railroad builders of the 
State. The volume contains an excellent sketch of 
Governor Morehead, and the frontispiece is a fine 
portrait of him. There are also excellent sketches of 
the late Joseph M. Morehead, the late James Turner 
Morehead, and of John Motley Morehead II, who rep- 
resented the Fifth District of North Carolina in the 
Sixty-first Congress, and other members of the fam- 
ily, who have been foremost among the industrial 
leaders of the State. The Motleys, the Lindsays, the 
Kerrs, the Graveses, the Lathrops, and other fam- 
ilies closely allied with the Moreheads are ade- 
quately treated. 

In his "Foreword" the author acknowledges the 
help of Mr. Burton Alva Konkle who, he tells us, 
"made numerous original researches in the archives 
of the counties of the 'Northern Neck' of Virginia, 
in connection with his preparation of a large formal 
work to appear in 1922, entitled: The Life and Times 
of John Motley Morehead, Governor of North Caro- 
lina." This announcement will he welcomed by all 
who are interested in the history of North Carolina, 
which contains no more outstanding figure than that 
of Governor Morehead. Mr. Konkle 's previous work 
gives assurance that his biography of this distin- 
guished alumnus of the University will be worthy 
of the subject in scholarship, thoroughness of prepara- 
tion, and broad grasp of the subject, and the hand- 
some volume before us indicates that in its mechanical 
execution no effort will be spared to produce a book 
that will be a credit to the printer's art.

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 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 

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 
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 -doing 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

For the Betterment 
of Mankind 

IN the rush of present day living, very 
few of us ever stop for a moment to sum 
up the benefits of modern civilization or to 
contrast them with past inconveniences. 

Electricity, for instance. Marvelous, we 
say, but there we stop. What makes it 
marvelous? Not what has been done, but 
rather what yet remains to be accomplished. 
It is the undeveloped possibilities of this 
magic force which make the whole world 
wonder what will come next. 

And it is the future which will determine 
just to what extent electricity may become 
a faithful servant of the public. The past 
achievements of the General Electric Com- 
pany are now everyday history — from the 
chaining of Nature to create electric power, 
to the vast number of ways for making that 
power useful in the daily lite of every 
human being. 

Each year has seen some new contribution 
from G-E to the world's progress. That 
this will continue is certain, because of the 
fact that this whole organization ani its 
remarkable facilities are devoted to studying 
the requirements of mankind in every walk 
of life and fully satisfying them with some- 
thing electrical.
