Thomas Walter Bickett 

On Wednesday morning, December 28, Thomas 
Walter Bickett, former Attorney General, four years 
Governor of North Carolina, and illustrious private 
citizen, fell on sleep. 

It is not the purpose of The Review to attempt 
to express the irreparable loss which North Caro- 
lina sustains in his untimeh' passing, or to voice 
the shock and personal grief which his sudden end 
brought to us in common with thoiLsands of his 
fellow citizens. It is rather to acclaim him great, 
one who. with honor and high courage and a sym- 
pathy that failed not, loved and served his fellow 

Nor is it the purpose of The Review to catalogue 
his services to the State he loved. But it will remem- 
ber in the years to be that his voice rang sincerely 
and clear for a finer North Carolina to live in. He 
was a friend to the unfortunate and the delinquent. 
He held it to be his high i)i'ivilege to break down 
the isolation and cramping limitations of the coun- 
try side. He carried the fight against disease deep 
into enemy territory. ' He underwrote a system of 
professional training for teachers and the lengthen- 
ing of the public school term from four to six months. 
He laid the foundation for the present organization 
of the road building program, and with a courage 
and statesmanship rarely exhibited in North Caro- 
lina political life, he became the flaming evangel of 
equality in taxation for every son and daughter of 
North Carolina. 

Two other things splendidly written into the record 
are : His voice as our representative beyond the 
borders of the State was always heard with respect ; 
and the fact that his was the directing hand while 
the destinies of the State were being tried by the 
fires of the world conflagration, gave assurance and 

It will also reverently cherish the memory of his 
services to Alma Mater. Four years chairman of 
the Board of Trustees at the time when she was 
extending her services to the State ; deeply in sym- 
pathy with her aims and ideals : always a wise and 
helpful counselor, he lent himself efi'ectively to thi> 
tasks which busied her hands. 

Again, we say, we shall not attempt to voice our 
grief: but rather, as he follows Melver and Ayeoclc. 
and Graham, and others of our illustrious dead, we 
shall glory in the things he achieved, and carry on. 


1922 — A Year of Alumni Opportunity 

On other pages in this issue of The Review a 
number of important matters are presented to which 
the thought, the energy, and the financial support of 
the alumni should be devotnl. 

For three months the whole rniversity has been 
agog with some sort of athletic Now 

that the Virginia contest is being arbitrated, that 
the New Bern baseball and football situations are 
things of the past, and the University is entering 
the new southern conference, let's settle down and 
write a new fine chapter in our athletic history. 

For three years the University student body has 
been, literally speaking, without a house or home 
in which to spend a happy after-supper hour. There 
hasn't been, and there isn't now, any such thing for 
the great majority of the students as decent home 
life. After the slump which the Graham Memorial 
building ran into in the fall of 1920, that building 
program is again under way. Let's get behind it and 
wipe out this shameful lack. 

Since cotton and tobacco went glimmering down 
into the abyss in 1920, there have been hundreds of 
boys on the campus who have stuck here only by too 
great an expenditure of time devoted to bread win- 
ning instead of "book larnin'." Dean Bradshaw 
vividly substantiates this fact. Let's find out who 
these men are and keep them here on class instead of 
on the wood pile. 

Last year was a legislative year. We put it up 
to North Carolina to underwrite Alma Mater. And 
she did it. Let's make 1922 our year and fill it full 
of individual gifts and services which are as essen- 
tial to the progress of the institution as the appro- 
priations by the State. It's oiirs to make it and 
keep it the greatest University in the south. Come 
on. Let's do it! 


Mrs. Kenan's Splendid Gift 

Perhaps the hajipiest person seen in Chapel Hill 
during the holidays (children who had been visited 
by Santa t'laus included) was Professor H. Horace 
Williams, who, on Christmas day, received the fol- 
lowing letter from Mrs. Graham Kenan : "I am 
enclosing a check for twenty-isix thousand dollars — 
twenty-five to be invested and the income used for 
establishing the Graham Kenan Fellowship in Philoso- 
phy, and one thousand dollars to meet the require- 
ments for the coming year. I am sending it to you 
because I wish you as one of Graham's very dear 
friends to present it to the proper authorities at the 
University. You, of course, will award the fellow- 
ship each year." 


Professor Williams' Comment 

In accepting the gift for the University, Professor 
Williams wrote President Chase as follows: "This 
cheek has been ])assed to Mr. C. T. Woollen, Business 
Manager, with instructions as per Mrs. Kenan's let- 
ter. Mr. President, T am most happy to make this 
report to you. The fine action of Mrs. Kenan gives 
permanent, visible presence to the things Graham 
Kenan stood for as a student here, at the same time 



inviling a steady stream of youug men to go forward 
into a fuller maturity of their powers. This means 
mufh for scholarship here and good citizenship in 
the State." 


What the Gift Signifies 

The University and The Review share with Pro- 
fessor Williams his thoroughly justifiahle happiness 
over this gift, for it is most opportime and sig- 

Through it a number of things which are pleasure- 
able to contemi")late are exemplified: A further link 
has been added to the chain of fine service rendered 
to the Thiiversity by the Kenan family; the gift bears 
testimonial to the bond of affectionate relationships 
between teacher and pupil here on the campus beneath 
these wide spreading oaks; it lays emphasis on those 
pursuits of the mind which lead to correct perspec- 
tives and the true evaluation of the issues of life ; 
and it calls to a future line of students that will 
grow with the passage of every year, to begin this 
splendid cpiest. 


A Further Significance 

At this particular moment the gift has a still fur- 
ther significance. It illustrates better than anything 
else could possibly do the sort of opportunity of 
which we have spoken in a preceding paragraph under 
the caption "1922 — A Year of Alumni Opportunity." 
It illustrates one of the many ways in which huiulreds 
of alumni can and should in this good year 1922 
enrich the life of this century-old campus. 

The basis for the Graham Kenan Fellowship in 
Philosophy has been definitely laid. But the foun- 
dations of the Edward Kidder Graham Fellowship 
in Government and Citizenship, The Kemp Plummer 
Battle Fellowship in History and Politics. The James 
Cameron McRae and John Manning Fellowships in 
Law, The Thomas Hume Fellowship in English, The 
Joshua Walker Gore Fellowship in Physics, The Eben 
Alexander Fellowshij) in Greek, The Richard Henry 
Wliitehead Fellowship in Medicine, to mention only 
a few that might most fittingly be established in 
memory of those who have served well the I'^niversity 
and State in days gone by, have not yet been laid. 
These, and many others in other subjects, such as 
Engineering, Commerce, Public Welfare. Economics, 
the languages and literatures, the sciences, the fine 
arts, etc., could and should be established. 

Again, fellow alumni and friends, we repeat that 
1922 is the i/ear of your opportunity! 


Thank Heaven for the Conference 

In its last issue, after discussing the Carolina- 
Virginia controversy. The Review thanked heaven 
for the new Conference which became effective Jan- 
uary 1, 1922, because it was of the opinion that 
the Conference would cut to the bone, if necessary, 
to put athletic relations among southern institutions 
on a basis of understanding that could not be open 
to ditferent interpretations and on a plane which 
would challenge the respect and admiration of all 
those who believe in strictly amateur college sport. 

The Review still thanks heaven, as a reference to 

the new rules (and comments thereon by Dr. C. S. 
Mangum, chairman of the faculty committee on ath- 
letics, appearing on another page) will show that 
regulations have been adopted which change past 
practice very radically, and for the better. 

The Review, however, feels constrained to attach 
one reservation to its thanksgiving. In the case 
of summer baseball, over which the University was 
thrown into commotion during the past fall, the lancet, 
instead of being vigorously applied, was laid aside 
and a piece of court plaster was clapped down over 
the sore, with the result that amateur baseball in 
colleges practically ceases to be an ideal, much less 
a reality. 

B.y granting a monthly expense allowance — $210 
is the maximum set — which so many alumni have 
heartily condemned, and which the University's rep- 
resentatives in the Conference voted solidly against 
and still hope to see changed through amendment, 
the standards have, in The Review's opinion, been 
distinetl.'^' lowered, and by failing to state explicitly 
under what circumstances such allowances shall be 
accepted opportunity is afi'orded for the very mis- 
understandings and questionable practices which have 
been the bane of amateur baseball in the past. 


The Responsibilities Involved 

As the University goes into the Conference, The 
Review feels that it is well within its privilege 
if it reminds the University's athletic authorities of 
the very grave responsibilities which rest upon them 
in the administration of this special rule; for it is 
one which threatens the real heart of our amateur 
standing. As a matter of fact, it substitutes the 
shop-worn, but seemingly imperishable motto — ever.y- 
body's doing it — for a really straight-forward, ama- 
teur athletic yardstick — a piece of athletic equip- 
ment, whose adoption, if postponed much longer, will 
cause those who believe in it to join President Hard- 
ing and Charles Evans Hughes in a prayer for a 
ten-year athletic holiday until a correct perspective 
on this subject can be acquired ! 


Carolina- Virginia Controversy Being Arbitrated 

President Alderman and the Virginia faculty 
accepted President Chase's offer of arbitrating the 
differences between Virginia and North Carolina grow- 
ing out of the point of the eligibility of one of North 
Carolina's football plaj'ers. Virginia proposed as the 
arbitrators. Professor Coleman of the University of 
South Carolina, Professor Dougherty of the Univer- 
sity of Tennessee, and Professor Sanford of the TTni- 
versity of Georgia. North Carolina, recognizing the 
capacity and character of these m?n, immediately 
accepted them as arbitrators. 

It is well that the arbitration go forward as swiftly 
as possible to clear up the facts and adjudge the 
issues in the interest of a friendly understanding, fair 
dealing, and true sportsmanship. 


Pritchard Elected Captain 

The election of William Grady Pritchard, '22, to 
be captain of the 1922 football team has been ratified 
by the enthusiastic opinion of students and alunuii. 
His captaincy is reminiscent of those triumphant days 



wheu those other Chapel Hill lads, "Pot" Graves aud 
"Pat" Winston, were leaders of University ath- 
leties. Pritehard is Chapel Hillese to the manor burn 
generations agone. On streets and fields regulated 
bj- the college bell for twenty-five years he has grown 
to his five feet and nine inches of modest manliness 
and his one hundred and eighty pounds of com- 
pressed grit. 

In the high school before the days of Fred Morri- 
son and his consecutive and triple chamjuonships, 
Pritehard had no athletic record. When not jerking 
soda at Eubanks drug store or exploring the woods 
and hills of Orange County, he was perhaps laying 
well his scholastic foimdation or arranging his win- 
ning arguments for the triangular high school debate. 

Pritehard entered the University in 1916. One 
mouth after war was declared he had enlisted in 
the United States Xavy. He was commissioned ensign 
in August, 1918, aud the armistice found him in 
active service on the United States Steamship Raleigh. 
Discharged February 1, 1919, he immediately 
reentered the University in the B. S. Commerce 

Pritehard played right tackle in 1919. His aggres- 
.<ive playing was a decisive factor in the gruelling 
13-12 victory over State College. In 1920 he was 
shifted to right guard. In 1921 he played right 
guard on offensive and right tackle on defensive. 
He had an unheralded but inspiring part in the 
remarkable work of a line that stopped the fury of 
the Virginia attack and cleared the way for Lowe's 
brilliant dash to victory. 


Courses in Education Required 

A ruling has recentlj' been announced by the Uni- 
versity as effective at the beginning of the winter 
quarter by which all students admitted to the Uni- 
versity on the "teacher's note" basis will be required 
to pursue, in return for the concession of tuition on 
the part of the State, special professional courses in 
education which will fit them for the profession of 
teaching. Accordingly, all students now in the Uni- 
versitj- on this basis, are at present taking up courses 
which will satisfy tliis requirement and at the same 
time put them in line to receive certificates upon the 
completion of the courses entitling them to definite 
grades of salary in the recently adopted salary scale 
of the State Department of Education. Seniors, who 
qualify for the highest salary grade, will be required 
to complete six courses, and juniors, who qualify 
for the next highest grade, four courses. 


Closer Coordination Probable 

Some of the immediate results of this requirement 
are obvious. Hereafter, when the State waives its 
tuition charges for teachers' services, it will expect 
to receive its compensation in increa.sed leaching 
ability. It will take the necessary precaution to see 
that it gets its returns in the specific terms of training 
for service in the school room. 

Other results are not quite so obvious. 'I'lic work 
of the School of Education will, of course, be greatly 
increased, and, to a corresponding degree, the classes 

in tlie College of Liberal Arts and the School of 
Applied Science will be reduced. Furthermore, the 
professional training program of the State Depart- 
ment of Education will be promoted along lines that 
have long needed systematic, construciive upbuilding. 

Another result, which is ndt so obvious, but which 
is none the less desirable, will probably be the closer 
drawing together of the various schools of the Uni- 
versity in the effort to make the University a great 
training plant for North Carolina teachers. The 
requirement will emphasize the fact that the best 
ends are not served when all attention is placed 
on the mastery of subject matter without reference to 
methods of teaching the subject matter, or conversely, 
when all emphasis is placed on pedagogical methods 
separate from a thorough grounding in subject matter. 

For a number of years The Review^ has thought 
that a program of closer unification in the Universitj' 
could be worked out with great profit to the educa- 
tional interests of the State, and in this ruling The 
REViEVi' believes will be foxuid the necessary stimulus. 
It sincerely hopes so, to say the least. 


North Carolina Baptist Foundation 

Two papers have recently come into our hands 
which are worthy of more extended comment than 
can be given them here. They are, respectively, the 
first annual report of the North Carolina Baptist 
Foimdation to the Baptist State Convention, and a 
copy of the laws of the state of Indiana (1917) pro- 
viding for donations to the state educational and 
state charitable or benevolent institutions. 

According to the first report of the Baptist Foun- 
dation, over $100,000 was received in gifts by will 
for Baptist objects during the first twelve months 
of the Foundation's existence. These gifts, which 
were contained in twenty wills brought to the atten- 
tion of the Foundation (there may be others of 
which the Foundation has not been advised) were 
distributed among denominational objects as follows: 
As an endowment fund for the Baptist hospital soon 
to be located in Winston-Salem, $25,100 ; to the 
Thomasville Baptist Orphanage, $18,000; to foreign 
missions, $6,800; to Baptist schools in North Caro- 
lina, without designating any particular school, 
$15,000 ; to a local Baptist church in perpetual trust 
for its support, $2,50(3; to Meredith College for the 
establishment and maintenance of two pei'mauent 
scholarships, $25,000; aud luidesignated, $10,000; 
total, $102,400. 

From this statement it is apparent that North 
Carolina )5aptists have developed an agency that is 
to render great service to the interests of that church. 
While the opportunity is still open to any individual 
to make his gift or will his property direct to anyone 
of the denomination's special institutions, the purpose 
of the Fouiulation is to draw to itself those gifts which 
in and of tliemselves might not suffice to achieve any 
distinctive ])ui'])os(', but whicli, when added to others, 
make possible highly desirable results. 

The experiment, already highly successful, has 
demonstrated a fine instrument for furthering the 
program of the church in the State, and those who 
brought it into being have every reason for pride 
ill their accomplishment. 



Indiana Provides Machinery 

The Indiana statute passed in 1917, while setting 
up no agency for promoting the idea of making gifts 
or leaving property to state institutions, has focused 
attention on the fact that the state welcomes such 
consideration on the pa'rt of its citizens and points 
out the most advantageous ways in which such dona- 
tions can be made. Suggested forms are recommended, 
and, what is possibly even more significant, a copy 
of the law is constantly in the hands of the lawyers 
and trust officers who, in the main, write wills and 
administer estates. The testator, failing to have in 
mind any special object to which he wishes to leave 
a part of his holdings, thereby always has the state 
brought to mind ! 


Why Not Incorporate Alumni Loyalty Fund? 

In view of the fact that the Alumni Loyalty Fund 
was established six years ago for just such purposes 
as those contemplated by the Baptist Foundation 
and the Indiana statute. The Review takes the liberty 
of suggesting to the directors of the Alumni Loyalty 
Fmid that they immediately take steps to incorporate 
the Fund, and then place copies of the articles of 
incorporation in the hands of all lawyers, trust offi- 
cers, and insurance companies in North Carolina who 
express a desire to receive them. In this way the 
attention of a wider group of citizens could constantly 
be drawn to the desirability of materially promoting 
the welfare of the University, and the Fund would 
the more quickly assume the proportions which it 

We pass the suggestion on to those in charge of 
the Fund, and will gladly give full publicity to any 
announcements which they may have to make about 
the matter. 

Constitution Seemingly Approved 

In October The Review printed in its entirety 
the proposed constitution of the General Alumni 
Association of the University and called upon the 
alumni for suggestions or amendments to be embodied 
in a revised form to be published in January. 

Inquiry of the- President and Secretary of the 
Association reveals the fact that no single alumnus, 
save The Review itself, has expressed a desire for 
the changing of the crossing of a < or the dotting 
of an i in the document, which means that the drafters 
of the compact were unusually wise, or that the alumni 
don't care a hang what sort of a constitution they 
have, or that the difficulties of English composition 
are so great that the alumnas would suffer any sort 
of managerial overlordship before he would resort to 
the written expression of an opinion to the contrary. 

Maybe we are mistaken. It may not mean any 
of these things at all. At all events, the constitu- 
tion as writ is writ, and now, to change it, will call 
for clean-cut orderly amendment in convention 

Mr. President, under the constitution thus accepted, 
name your nominating committee, instruct it to return 
its slate to the Secretary by March 1, and The 
Review will use due diligence in obtaining photo- 
graphs and abridged life stories of the nominees, with 
the hope that the balli)t will bi-ing out the full vote of 
the Association. 

Bingham Inheritance Tax Case Decided in Univer- 
sity's Favor 

According to an opinion delivered by Judge Lin- 
coln in the Bingham Inheritance Tax case (involving 
the Kenan Professorship Fund) it has been held that 
the fund willed the University is exempt from the 
tax which the state of Kentucky brought suit to 

Although the matter has not gone as yet to the 
Supreme Court of Kentucky, the opinion of Judge 
Lincoln as expressed in the following paragraphs, 
indicates the great probability of the decision, if the 
case is carried up higher, resulting favorably to the 
University : 

Our statutes say to the resident of Kentucky — "All your 
real estate in Kentucky and all of your personal property 
wherever situated, shall be subject to an inheritance tax, ex- 
sept such as you shall by will give to municipal corporations of 
the state for public purposes or to institutions or associations 
of purely public charity wherever situated. ' ' 

I have no doubt that the exemption contained in this 
clause is as broad as its language implies and that the intent 
and purpose of the Legislature was to exempt from the opera- 
tion of the inheritance tax law all devises, legacies and be- 
quests by a testator residing in Kentucky to purely public 
•harities wherever situated, and I conclude, as a matter of 
law, that the bequests to the University of North Carolina, 
the trustees of the Memorial Presbyterian Church of St. 
Augustine, Fla., the Flagler Hospital and Presbyterian Church 
of lliauii, Fla., are all gifts for purely charitable and educa- 
tional purposes and are exempt as such from the inheritance tax 
law of Kentucky. ' ' 


The Sight He Saw Filled His Eye 

It was between halves. 

For two unavailing quarters Winston and Fayette- 
ville had exhibited a brand of high school football 
on Bmersou Field that furnished everj^ sort of thrill 
save the one which attends the placing of the pig 
skin back of the goal line. 

In the stands a crowd that for size and "pep" 
and sheer good nature would have done more than 
credit to any of the frays of the old "On-to-Rich- 
mond" days, was shifting its eye from the teams to 
the cheer leaders — particularly those three young 
graces from the Twin City when, out through the 
central gate, onto the field, with the three graces 
at its head, moved a line, winding, swajang, chanting, 
yelling, of one hundred Winston girls. 

Backward, forward, to right, to left, around the 
Winston braves, then back again to the stands for 
the final fray — to Fayetteville's brilliant dash of 
7 to and — pandemonium. 

Far up in the north stand an old grad, doughty 
center of the flying V of 1892, looked on, looked on 
from the point of view of '92 and now. 

And the sight he saw filled his eye. 

■ nnn 

The Achievement Is Significant 

Since the Winston-Fayetteville game. The Review 
has been contemplating the events that culminated 
in the sight that filled the old grad's e3^e. Back of 
the final game — a game which evidenced skill and 
understanding and training lacking in the playing 
of many a college team less than a decade ago — 
was a series of games in which fortj- North Carolina 
high schools participated this year, and back of 
that seven series running back to the beginning in 
1913, wheu members of the athletic committee of 



the University Extension Division projected this high 
school sport. 

The Review is not going into any discussion of 
high school football. But it is going to say, that as 
a result of these contests, thousands of North Caro- 
lina boys have been held in North Carolina high 
schools and hundreds who never would have entered 
a college door are acquittiug themselves splendidly 
in the colleges of the State today. High school foot- 
ball, whatever its defects, is no small asset to high 
school life, and the men who made it possible in 
North Carolina have reason for pride in their achieve- 


Editor, Review : 

Sir: The recent controversy with the University 
of Virginia over the eligibility of a football player 
has focused the attention of the State on athletics 
at our University from a new angle. For a number 
of years it has been largely taken for granted that 
the members of our teams were amateur athletes of 
the strictest sect of the Pharisees with eligibility 
tested by rules which left no loop holes for players 
about whose standing there could be the slightest 
question. The public is now wondering whether these 
easy assumptions need to be revised. I believe that 
the general view of the dispute with Virginia was 
that the real equity of the case pointed to Virginia 
as the proper side to yield. The question, however, 
is larger than the eligibility of Jolmson. This case 
following on the heels of the unfortunate incident 
of the players whose amateur standing was involved 
by playing summer ball at New Bern last summer, 
makes it imperative that we should face the question 
as to whether things are as they should be with us. 

The details of particular cases must, of course, 
be settled at Chapel Hill, and the decisions made 
there will be widely "accepted as fmal. Matters of 
policy, however, are of vital concern to the alumni 
and it ought to be fully understood and never for 
an instant forgotten that we want clean athletics 
more than we want to win; and that victory brings 
no joy unless our good name is above suspicion. 

Yours truly, 

K. D. Battle, '09. 
Rocky Mount, December 17. 


Announcement was made by University authorities 
in December that a joint sanitary board of the Uni- 
versity and the town of Chapel Hill, with Dr. 
Eric Abernethy at the head of it, had been organized 
for the purpose of making this community the equal 
of the best governed city anywhere in the inspection 
of dairies and water supply and food stuffs and of 
the places where food is served. 

Dr. S. A. Nathan, a graduate of the State College 
and a veterinary surgeon of long experience, has been 
retained for one year to direct the joint board s 
activities. He has spent four years doing the same

At the dinner hour on Wednesday, November 30, 
fire of miknown origin wiped out the main body of 
the University Inn and thereby threw out of regular 
sleeping quarters forty-two students who had been 
occupying the building as a dormitory since the first 
of October. 

Through the assistance of the hre department and 
the student bodj', the tire was controlled before the 
one-storj- rooms to the east of the maui building and 
the Annex were reached, and almost all of the be- 
longings of the occupants of the rooms were saved. 
Temporary quarters for the roomers were found in 
the basement of the Steele dormitory and the village. 

The brass plate at the doorway of the brick section 
of the building erected in honor of the return of 
President James Knox Polk, was also saved, and will 
be preserved with other special historical treasures 
of the University. 


Honors for the members of the 1921 football team 
have been officially announced by the University ath- 
letic board of awards. 

The "Letter'" — that is, the privilege of wearing 
the N. C. monogram — is awarded to McGee, John- 
son, V. Morris, Gillon and Business Manager Hill. 
Blount, Poindexter, Jacobi, Kernodle, McDonald, 
Shepard and R. Morris, receive their first "Star," 
which means that this is the second season they have 
played on the varsity. A second "Star," for the 
third season, goes to Lowe, Cochran and Pritchard.

The organization of the Southern Intercollegiate 
Conference means that the State Institutions have 
assumed the role of leadership iu intercollegiate 
athletics throughout the South. 

If the spirit manifested by the assembled delegates 
can be taken as an index this leadership is to be both 
wise and constructive. 

In a territory extending from Maryland to Ala- 
bama varying conditions and athletic connections 
produce many conflicting problems. 

These were all met in a generous spirit of good 
sportsmanship and fair play, and regulations were 
adopted which all could enforce without any one 
institution having to make too great a sacrifice. 

These regulations go into effect January 1, 1922, 
and are subject to change or amendment at any 
annual meeting of the Conference. Only a fair 
trial can demonstrate the necessity for such action. 

The purpose of the Conference is not only to 
promote intercollegiate athletics but also "to keep 
them within proper boimds by making them inci- 
dental and not the principal feature of intercolle- 
giate and university life." 

Who Are Members 

The membership is limited to sixteen but at present 
consists of fourteen institutions of the southern 
states : Alabama Polytechnic Institute, Univei-sity 
of Alabama, Georgia School of Technology, Univer- 
sity of Georgia, University of Kentucky, University 
of Maryland, Mississippi Agricultural and Mechani- 
cal College, North Carolina State College, Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, Clemson College, S. C, Uni- 
versity of Tennessee, University of Virginia, Vir- 
ginia Polytechnic Institute and Washington and Lee 

Among the general principles of athletic policy 
are: (1) Insistence upon faculty responsibility and 
control; (2) discountenance of the custom of spying 
or other secret means of obtaining information ; 
(3) agreement to keep all questions of eligibility 
involving the letter or the spirit of the Conference 
rules as matters of confidence between the institu- 
tions concerned. 

General Code 

1. Post-season games prohibited. 

2. Freshman teams shall be composed of members 
of the freshman class only. 

3. Maintenance of training table not permitted. 

•i. Eligibility of a player must be certified to 
the Eligibility Committee of the Conference before 
he can participate in any intercollegiate contest. 

5. No preliminary training prior to September 
10th or the official opening of the college. 

6. Annual interconference track meet and basket- 
ball tournament. 

The rules of eligibility apply to all sports, directed 
and controlled by the athletic association. Thdse 
which will effect changes in athletic conditions at 
the University of North Carolina are : 

1. The One-Year Rule 

"No person shall participate in intercollegiate ath- 
letics at an institution until after the expiration of 

one year from the date of his matriculation there, 
and until he shall have completed the scholarship 
requirements of the institution." 

2. Migrant Students 

(a) "No person who has participated in any 
intercollegiate contest as a member of any college 
team shall be permitted to participate in an inter- 
collegiate contest as a member of a team of any other 
institution iu this Conference." 

(b) "Students who have piirsued courses of study 
at one university or college but who have not par- 
ticipated in any intercollegiate contest, shall be eli- 
gible to participate in intercollegiate athletics at 
another institution, but only when they shall have 
satisfied the conditions as set forth in the one year 
Residence Rule." 

Many of the institutions represented at the Con- 
ference, and among them the University of North 
Carolina, opposed this rule, the delegates claiming 
that the enforcement of the full one-year rule antl 
the rule limiting participation in athletics to three 
years within a period of five years would make it 
unnecessary. The extent of this opposition makes 
it highly probable that this rule may be modified at 
no distant date. 

3. Limit of Participation 

"Participation in intercollegiate athletics shall be 
limited to three years, over a five-year period, count- 
ing from the time of first matriculation. Participa- 
tion in any intercollegiate contest in any college year 
shall constitute one year of athletic participation." 

4. Compensation 

(a) "No person who receives any compensation 
from his institution for services rendered by way of 
regular instruction shall be allowed to participate 
in intercollegiate contests." 

(b) "No person shall be allowed to participate 
in any intercollegiate contest who receives any gift, 
remuneration or pay for his services on a college 

(c) "No person shall be permitted to participate 
in any intercollegiate contest who has ever used or 
is using his knowledge of athletics or his athletic or 
gymnastic skill for gain." 

Note. — "This rule does not apply to any person 
who has working connection with a playground or 
summer camp where the requirements do not call 
for a man with technical preparation in physical 
training. ' ' 

Section C of the above rule will have to be watched 
closely by those who engage in summer baseball. It 
may be used to keep within bounds the activities of 
those who insist upon exploiting the college player 
for the benefit of semi-professional baseball teams. 

5. Summer BasehaU 

(a) '.'No student shall be eligible to play in any 
intercollegiate contest who has played baseball on 
any professional or league team named in class A. 
B.'C or D in the publication of the American Sports 

(b) "No student shall be eligible if he plays sun> 



mer baseball for more than expenses as laid down by 
the American Athletic Union." 

In enacting this rule the Conference, after conr- 
ageously meeting every other problem, and going fu"- 
ther than any similar organization had ever attempted 
to go, suddenl.y developed a reversal of form and 
failed utterly to meet the issue. This action has set 
back the fight for amateur sport, at least in our 
section of the South, about fifteen yeai-s. 

It is to be hoped that public opinion, as expressed 
by all true lovers of College baseball, will force the 
Conference to reconsider its action and adopt a rule 
that will eliminate forever from our university life 
this unmitigated evil. 

Retroactive Resolution 

"Men who have regularly matriculated prior to 
January 1, 1022, shall have all rights and privileges 
accorded them which the present athletic rules of their 
college guarantee. They shall have their eligibility 
.judged by. those rules and shall be allowed to finish 
their athletic careers luider those rules, except that 
the right to participate in intercollegiate contests 
after transference from one college to another shall 
cease after January 1, 1922." 

The good effect of the leadership of the Southern 
Intercollegiate Conference is already apparent. The 
Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association, com- 
posed of twenty-nine southern colleges and univer- 
sities, the majority of which are small institutions, 
has followed suit ajul adopted the full one year 
rule and the rule relating to migrant students. 

This will make it unlikely that the Conference 
colleges will be called upon to enforce the Confer- 
ence rules upon any of their opponents. 

Some of the above eligibility rules have been 
severely criticised on the ground that they are too 
drastic and will work hardship upon many worthy 
men who should be permitted to play. However, 
the imderlying purpose of the rules is perfectly 
plain to an.yone and long experience in the adminis- 
tration of intercollegiate athletics has demonstrated 
that rules must be drastic to be effective. Any rule 
that is made lenient enough not to work hardship 
upon someone presents so many loopholes for those 
interested in evading it that it becomes totally ineffec- 
tive and oftentimes a joke. 

For many years the greatest obstacle to an honest 
administration of athletics at the University of North 
Carolina has been the misdirected interest of too 
enthusiastic alumni who seem to consider nothing 
beyond the winning of the game. 

Regulations can never be enforced and our ath- 
letic standards kept upon the plane where all of 
us in our hearts want them to be without the willing 
and fair coJiperatiou of the alumni and the student 

If the alumni will only give us this coopera- 
tion in our intention to give the Southern Intercolle- 
giate Conference a fair trial we feel that we can vouch 
for our loyal and straight thinking student body.

A post-season game in Jacksonville with the Uni- 
versity of Florida, an institution which our Uni- 
versity had never before met in an athletic contest, 
closed the Carolina football activities of 1921. It 
was a 1-1 to 10 victorj- for the Tar Heels, but there 
was more about it than winning to make the event 
an extraordinarily pleasant one. An unfamiliar city 
out of our usual athletic "beat:" an enthusiastic 
crowd not yet accustomed to big football spectacles 
and therefore greeting this one with a peculiar 
relish; the joy of resident expatriated North Caro- 
linians at seeing their University's representatives so 
far south; the unusual display of hospitality on the 
part of the Floridians — all these combined to make 
the Florida trip a joyous holiday for Captain Lowe 
and his followers and a source of keen satisfaction 
for the rest of us who read of it in the newspapers. 

Speed and the smoothness of operation which 
Coach Fetzer had drilled into the Carolina team 
enabled the visitors to overcome an advantage of 
twTuty pounds to the man possessed by Florida. 
After the first few minutes of the game they were 
easily dominant, and they came near adding one 
more touchdown to the two that were sufficient to 
give them the victory. Lowe was again the spec- 
tacular thrower and Johnson the equally spec- 
tacular receiver of forward passes. Again and again 
their performance in this department of the game 
thrilled the crowd. Florida was vigorous, deter- 
mined, competent, but it was unable to keep the 
fleet Carolina backs from going through the line, 
off the tackles, and around the ends for large gains. 

On the night of the day the game was played the 
University Club of Jacksonville gave both teams 
a dinner. President Chase of Carolina and President 
Murfree of Florida, the two captains and the two 
coaches all made short speeches. It was a thor- 
oughly delightful love feast. Afterward there was 
a big ball at the American Legion Home. The North 
Carolina alumni in Jacksonville presented the team 
with a silver loving cup. 

On the way back to Chapel Hill the varsity players 
elected Grady Pritchard captain of the 1922 eleven. 
He lives in Chapel Hill and has been a mainstay of 
the Carolina line for three years. His brilliant de- 
fensive work this last fall placed him at or near the 
toji (if the list of southern line men. 

Nine fo()tl)all games were played by Carolina in 
1921. She won from Wake Forest, Virginia Military 
Institute, Maryland, Virginia and Florida, lost to 
Yale and State College and tied South Carolina and

It is not surprising that an America that glori- 
fies an aristocracy of achievement, finds its kings in 
industry, writes its epics and sagas in the American 
Magazine, and has "Wlio's Who in America" for 
a Bible ; it is not surprising that such an America 
sliould be exemplified on the campus of the Univer- 
sity of one of its most American states. And on 
this campus this year, born of the post-bellum rush 
for an education and the fall of cotton and the mark 
(God save the former), we have the self -helping est 
year of the last decade. 

Five Hundred Applications 

The quality of this year was heralded by a gen- 
eral restles.sness last spring as conditions "back 
home" began to crystallize aboiit a fallen mark 
and market. Men began to prophesy that our new 
dorms would be unnecessary because of an enrollment 
depleted by hard times. The next straw in the wind 
was an exceptionally early application to the Faculty 
Committee on Student Employment for work tTiis 
year. The first was followed by a torrent that rolled 
up a total of over five hundred such applications for 
seventy jobs at Swain Hall : and a reenfofced com- 
mittee talked in person to two hundred and twenty- 
eight applicants on the day before registration this 
fall. Wlien this process was complete and the smoke 
of "questionairing" had blown away, there were 
some ninety-four "extreme cases." One member of 
the committee had disqualified every applicant that 
had as much as fifty dollars in sight for the year's 
expense and another selected only those men without 
living fathers. Of this list only seventy could be 
employed at Swain Hall. The remaining twenty- 
four "extreme cases" were put on the alternate list 
Evei-y day that passed added to the list of those 
on the ragged edges and every train brought in 
others too late to go before the committee, but 
needing work. Into this situation the Y. M. C. A. 
stepped and helped place men as waiters in boardi"" 
houses, canvassed the entire town for work and 
organized a "pick and shovel crew" to lay pipe 
for the University. The laundry took some. Class- 
room buildings were turned over to student janitors. 
Some three or four freshmen, having counted for 
months on Swain Hall, being left to shift for them- 
selves, shifted home again, in spite of all exhortations 
to wait a bit for things to settle. The rest stuck 
to the job. The loan funds were called into the fight. 
Barber signs in windows, a shine stand in the "Y" 
on Saturdays, a candy kitchen in an \ipstairs room 
down town ; these were among the marks of a new 
high tide. 

What Is the Objective? 

Wliy such conditions? Why should a man leave 
his father's roof -tree, not as a prodigal with his 
portion, but with nothing but his father's blessing; 
enough to buy a ticket, but not enough to hire a 
trunk drayed ; enough to pay for his first meal, but 
not a second : enoiigh to register for a course, but 
nothing left for text books — why should such a one 
come to Chapel Hill ? One such in answer to just 

this very question replied that he had been told that 
if he would come willing to woi'k, the University 
would see him through. Apparently ninety-four at 
least, were told that thing last summer, for they 
came confident that the University would help them 
fight it out. They came to a campus whence many 
such have gone before them, a campus that wants 
them, appreciates them, and lays its all at their 

Have Been Leaders on the Campus 

A casual glance back over the past decade shows 
their line of march. Possibly the most imique cam- 
piis institution is that of student self-government. Of 
the last eleven campus mayors, seven have worked 
their way through the University. In no intercol- 
legiate activity have we a prouder record than in 
debate. Among thirty of our recent champions, 
we find eighteen that have worked their way through. 
Of the last eleven Magazine editors six have been 
self-.supporting ; one a man who had a barber's chair 
in his room and made it an altar of good comrade- 
ship as well as a means of livelihood. Of one of the 
University's largest chapters of Phi Beta Kappa, 
one-third were taking time from studies to earn their 
board. From Morgan in 1912 to Grant in 1921 
the editorial board of the Tar Heel has repeatedly 
been headed by these "soldiers of fortune." From 
Homewood, washing dishes in Old Commons, to Poin- 
dexter walking to college, some of the fiercest fighters 
ever wearing the NC have been men who learned 
their fierceness in the battle of life. Is it any won- 
der that this year on a campus with such a "history 
it should be replete with the unusual and the heroic? 

Turn Summer to Good Account 

A recent survey of tlie situation brings to light 
two definitions of "self-help .student." The one used 
so far by the writer is that of a man who during his 
stay in college earns as well as studies. The other 
definition includes the man who works during vaca- 
tion time ; and their name is legion. When com- 
mencement rolls around and vacation begins it means 
for about eighty-five per cent of the students in this 
University no emigration to the seaside or the moun- 
tains, no toui-ing this continent or any other, except 
to sell books, or book chautauquas. Home they go. 
not to rest, but to work. The only student, dis- 
covered at this writing, who went abroad last summer 
went as a sailor before the mast, and our representa- 
tives at Atlantic City sold ads for a paper and lec- 
tured to tourists on the wonders of the shark. Some 
went to the moimtains and "worked on State Park 
on Mt. Mitchell." or at "logging camps." One 
was a strike breaker at Concord. It is an interesting 
commentary on the value of road-bond issues in times 
of depression to find that many men are in collc; 
this fall on money earned with the State Highway 
Commission last summer. 

When these men come to college many drop frrr- 
tlie list of self-help students leaving about twenty- 
five per cent who actually earn while they studj'. 
These, about 400, do the woi'k of the place. 



Earnings Average $260 a Year 

From the begiuuing to the end of j-our da.y you 
cannot escape from their activity. One is delivering 
milk at your boarding house before you arise, they 
wait on your table, wash dishes, sweep out class 
rooms, cut wood and make gardens during the after- 
noon, clean houses, wash windows, sweep the streets. 
If you go to church it is heated and cleaned by a 
student; if you go to the movies, you buy your 
ticket from a student, one operates the machine and 
another plays the piano. Much of the mail is han- 
dled by them. They do a large part of the laundry 
work. If you want candy, belt buckles, ties, clothes, 
shoes or pennants, there will be half a dozen students 
to supply you. Socks can be bought from a man 
whose father is in the wholesale mill business. You 
call central and a student gives you your number. 
Your town paper has a student linotype operator. 
Another student wiU make early delivery of the 
morning paper from Durham. If you want to adver- 
tise something, its merits can be blazened on enough 
blotters to equip the Recording Angel tiU the Day 
of Judgment — just call a student. These tireless men 
typewrite and mimeograph, paint signs, sell mega- 
phones, programs, colors on Thanksgiving day — well 
this is enough to illustrate the futility of a complete 
catalogue of their activities. They work hard, earn- 
ing on an average $260 a year. They study hard, 
contributing much to give the campus solidity and 
seriousness of purpose. They gain much in maturity 
of personality, integrity of character, and knowledge 
of life. It would be a rash and reckless Henry Ford 
that would class these college men with ' ' other horned 

More Flexible Loan Funds Needed 

Yet with all the glory in this record, there comes 
a regret and a wish. Chapel Hill does not afford 
many genuine opportunities for employment. These 
glorious boys have simply made them. Much that 
they do they had better leave undone so far as benefit 
to themselves be concerned. Most of them are men 
who do not need this necessity to give them firm 
purpose. Some are suppporting a widowed mother, 
sending a sister through school or "getting out of 
the way" of a younger brother. Released from 

the meaningless drudgery of many tasks these wouh' 
find University life even richer than they do, would 
leave here on the campus an even liuer record than 
they have left and would go even better equipped than 
now, back to the commonwealth that gave them birth. 
May such investments as the Carr Fellowship and 
the Holt Fluid multiply and replenish this little pa., 
of the earth. 


One of the most vital results of the last legislative 
appropriations has been the reclamation of Memorial 
Hall as a University assembly hall. It has long held 
its place on the campus and in our hearts as an 
entablatured mausoleum of our distinguished alumni 
and our heroic Confederate dead. But as an assem- 
hly hall it has for four decades been a cold, ever- 
lasting cemetery of occasional speeches and com- 
mencement exercises. Now by the putting of cork 
carpet on the floor and of felt and burlap on the 
ceiling to cushion the soimds this vast hall is both 
a memorial and assembly hall. 

In consequence chapel has changed from an occa- 
sion for only the freshman class into an occasion 
for the whole college save the seniors who, never- 
theless, attend in large numbers out of voluntary 
interest. The chapel committee which is composed 
of the dean of students and four members of the 
faculty have met their responsibility by providing 
a program thus far of real substance, vigor, and 
snap. Men of state and national reputation in the 
affairs of labor, the Red Cross, the Y. M. C. A., and 
the Student Volunteer Movement have contributed 
to the vitality of the program in addition to the 
headliners of the faculty and student body. 

What the daily gathering of twelve hundred stu- 
dents means to the spirit, tone and morale of the 
campus is incalculable and beyond price. The new 
chapel means that with the building of buildings 
wUl also go a building of that spirit which is the 
distinction and the soul of the University of North

Alumni who have subscribed or contributed to 
the Graham Memorial Fund will be interested in the 
following reports adoi)ted by the committee last June 
and on December 19 : 

June 14, 1921. 1. Last year it was reported that 
$135,400 had been subscribed to the Graham Me- 
morial Fund. This amount was based upon the cards 
actually signed, cash subscriptions, and statements 
made by local directors or interested parties who 
were reasonably sure that the commiuiities whi.h 
they represented would raise the amoimts indicated. 
A careful checking of the pledge cards in hand at 
that time shows that the cards signed, together with 
cash subscriptions, amounted to $122,214.51. It will 
be seen from this statement that there is a discrep- 
ancy of $13,185.49, the discrepancy being due to 
the fact that this time only such pledges are included 
as have been made upon regular pledge cards, or 
through cash subscriptions. The committee has 
deemed it advisable to include only these pledges 
as in reality it holds no signed papers which it could 
consider binding as to the other $13,185.49. Sub- 
scriptions raised since then have amounted to 
$1,483.50, making a total of $123,698.01. Of this 
total, $56,001.33 has been received and is on deposit, 
$40,000 at six per cent, and $15,000 at four per 
cent interest. The remaining, representing the sub- 
scriptions paid for Jiuie, will be placed on deposit 
July 1. 

2. As soon as the Building Committee of the Trus- 
tees decides upon the location of the prospective 
buildings, the Memorial Committee will take up the 
matter of location and proceed with the drafting of 
plans with a view of starting the building. Further 
subscriptions will be solicited and the work will Ijl 
pushed as rapidly as possible. 

3. During the year two members of the committee, 
Hon. Victor S. Bryant, representing the Trustees, 
and Judge Jeter C. Pritchard, representing the State, 
have died. 

December 19, 1921. 1. From June 14 to Decem- 
ber 7 subscriptions amounting to $6,799.93 have been 
paid in, the total cash on hand at the latter date being 

2. Of the $62,801.16 cash on hand $15,000 is on 
deposit at four per cent, and the remainder at six 
per cent. 

3. Of the total $123,698.01 subscribed and backed 
by pledge cards duly signed there is every assurance 
that at least $100,000 net can be collected during the 
year 1922. 

4. In view of the fact that a student building 
is a miost pressing necessity, it is deemed wise that 
the central unit of the proposed building, containing 
lobby, reading rooms and recreational features, be 
begun at once. 

5. That architects be consulted immediately as to 
plans and the selection of plans and the construction 
of the building proceed in such ways as seem best 
after consultation with the Trustee Building t!om- 

6. That a site be selected at once to be recommended 
to the Trustee Building Committee. At present, two 
sites are under consideration: (1) The open .space 

on the north side of Cameron Avenue between Swain 
Hall and new West and opposite Phillips Hall and (2) 
the site of the recently burned University Inn. The 
committee does not look with favor on the sugges- 
tion offered that the building be placed at the extreme 
southern end of the new campus development south 
of the South Building and west of Emerson Field. 

7. Inasmuch as a student union has become recog- 
nized as an absolute necessitj' on the campus of 
the modern university, and must ultimately provide 
such features as will enable it to serve all the legiti- 
mate interests of the student body, the committee 
believes that the site selected and the plans drawn 
should make possible the extension of the building 
as occasion demands and opportunity arises. It is 
to be remembered that the Michigan Union, the finest 
example of student centers in the United States, 
has been seventeen years in building at a cost of 
$1,250,000 to date.

Of course the make-up of the team is not definitelj' 
determined yet. The list of players in the match 
which the Durham Y. M. C. A. recently won from 
Carolina gives, however, an indication of who the 
successful candidates will be. The five men who 
started the game for Carolina were W. Carmichael, 
C. Carmichael, McDonald, Green and Lineberger. 
The five other men who were put in before the match- 
was over were Graham, Mahler, Williams, Brown 
and Ambler. 

William Fetzer, Director of Athletics, will be the 
varsitv basketball coach. 




For many reasons the year has been the most not- 
able in the history of the library. Five of these, 
at least, should be specificallj' mentioned: (1) After 
one hundred and twenty-seven years the book collec- 
tion passed the 100,000 mark and thereby became 
one of less than six of that size in the South; (2) 
the acquisition of new volumes for the year — 5,857 — 
was greater than that of any previous year; (3) the 
University approved a budget for 1921-22 of $45,000 
for library purposes, thereby- adding $12,500 to the 
book fund; (4) the Budget Committee worked out 
a comprehensive plan for the orderlj- constructive 
enlargement of the book collection through a well 
balanced distribution of funds to the various depart- 
ments and schools; and (5) throughout the year, 
in all departments of the library, the use of books 
and periodicals, by students, faculty, and citizens 
of the State at large, exceeded all previous records. 

Meeting Requirements of Growing University 
By means of the increased appropriations, pro- 
vision has been made for increasing the resources of 
all departments and a definite effort has been made 
to strengthen the work of the Graduate School through 
the acquiring of technical treatises which heretofore 
could not be acquired but which were absolutely 
essential in carrj'ing on special investigations. The 
advance, in this field, while far from what it should 
and must be, is particularly gratifying. 

Phillips Hall Library Equipped 

A further distinctive expansion was provided for 
in the equipment of the departmental library of 
Phillips Hall in which shelving, tables, chairs, desks, 
etc., were installed sufficient to accommodate 5,000 
volumes, the expense involved being approximatelj' 
$1,750. Additions were also made to the physical 
equipment of the department of Rural Social Science. 

The North Carolina Collection 
Growth in the North Carolina Collection has been 
most pronounced. The publications secured during 
the previous j'ear from the family of the late Kemp 
Plummer Battle, the family of Mrs. Jime Spencer 
Love, Mrs. Thomas McDowell, Dr. Charles Lee Raper, Christine Fisher, and others, have been em- 
bodied in the collection, and additional acquisitions 
of special significance have been secured from Mrs. 
H. A. London, Mr. W. W. Scott, Mrs. A. W. Belden, 
Mrs. J. E. Ray, Mr. J. C. Taylor, Mrs. Julia Graves, 
Mr. J. B. Sherrill, Mr. J. A. Warren, Mrs. Ernest 
Blair, Mrs. C. D. Mclver, and others whose names 
appear in the list of donors. It has been particu- 
larl}- gratifying to secure the bound files of the 
Lenoir Topic, 1876-1898, and the Chatham Record, 
1880-1920, and a number of Salisbury papers pub- 
lished between 1820 and 1840. The total acquisi- 
tions for the year have been 923 bound volumes and 
3,781 pamphlets. The library gratefully acknowl- 
edges the continued interest and assistance of Mr. 
John Sprunt Hill in increasing the usefulness of the 

Twenty- Year Summary 

Ten years ago I had occasion to summarize the 
first ten years of my administration of the library. 

Again, at the end of a second ten-year period of 
service, I wish briefly to set down certain facts rela- 
tive to the steady expansion of the library as an 
organic part of the University. 

1. Personnel. In 1901 the library was adminis- 
tered by the librarian, then a student pursuing 
courses leading to the degree of Master of Arts, and 
two student assistants. Today the professional staff 
numbers eight and the student assistants seven. 

2. Volumes and annual acquisitions. At the end 
of 1901 the book collection numbered 38,593 as 
against 101,503 today, the average annual acquisi- 
tions at the beginning of the period being approxi- 
mately 1,200 and at the end 5,500. Distinctive col- 
lections, such as those in North Caroliniana, Chemis- 
try and English, to mention only three, were in a 
sense only at their beginning, and the appropriation 
for use by the individual departments was only $30 
each annuall}'. 

3. Building and equipment. The present Carnegie 
building was completed in 1907, taking the place of 
Smith Hall. In addition. Smith Hall has been 
utilized for the law librarj-, and special library 
equipment has been provided outside the general 
library for the following departments and schools: 
Chemistry, Botany and Zoology, Medicine, Rural 
Social Science, Pharmacy, Phjsics, Electrical En- 
gineering, Civil Engineering and Matehmatics. The 
Carnegie building represents an expenditure of 
$73,796.29 and $7,500 or more has been spent on 
departmental library equipment. 

4. Finances. In 1901 tlie total spent for books 
was $1,541.32, in 1920-21, $12,977; the budget for 
this purpose for 1921-22 being $21,850. The total 
expenses (spent or allotted) were 1901-02, $2,600.01; 
1920-21, $30,478.59; 1921-22, $45,000. In 1907 an 
endowment of $55,000 was raised for library pur- 
poses and in 1917-18 Mr. Jolm Sprunt Hill" began 
contributing $900 (later increased to $1,000) annu- 
ally to enlarge the North Carolina collection. In 
1918 two special appropriations were made by the 
University to acquire the Herty collection in Chem- 
istry and the Weeks collection of North Caroliniana. 

5. Service. In 1901 the library served primarily 
the student body of between four himdred and five 
himdred members. Today it serves the sixteen him- 
dred students and faculty in a far more satisfactory 
way than formerly, and reaches through its package 
service residents in every part of the State. Its 
collections and journals are i)ractically indispensable 
to the editors of the scholarly publications of the 
University and the work of the Graduate School. 
In 1904 it assisted in the foundation of the North 
Carolina Library Association ; in 1909 it helped in 
securing legislation establishing the North Carolina 
Library Commission; and in 1912 it assisted in the 
inauguration of the Bureau of Extension of the 
University. From 1904 until the present it has 
offered courses in the use of books and library 
methods, and has constantly pointed out to the stu- 
dents the importance, not only of reading, but par- 
ticularly of acquiring the ability to handle books 
intelligently in the acquisition of information. — L. R. 
Wilson, '99, University Librarian.

In academic circles throughout the land the use 
of Doctor as a title in speaking or writing to Ph.D's., 
LL.D's. and other D's except M.D's., is coming into 
disfavor. It still survives in Chapel Hill, but there 
are beginning to be heard mutterings against it. And 
the revolt is not attributed to the jealousy of those 
who don't have degrees. Some of the D's themselves 
are the hottest opponents of the ancient custom. 

Three or four years ago at a facidty meeting, the 
subject came up for discussion and the sentiment 
was overwhelming for the use of plain Mister when 
one member of the faculty greeted another. Since 
then Mister has grown steadily in popularity. 

Nicholas Murray Butler, President of Columbia 
University, wrote a letter on this topic last year 
to a gentleman who is now in the faculty here. 

"I see no reason," he said, "why the disagree- 
able habit of addressing certain persons by the title 
of Doctor should not be done away with entirely. 
And there is no more reason for addressing a Doctor 
of medicine as Doctor than for so addressing a Doctor 
of philosophy, or laws, or theology. 

"Having suffered from this unfortunate habit for 
many years, I am in a position to speak with some 
feeling. I warn you, however, that you will not be 
able, no matter how industriously you try, to do 
away with the title of Doctor. The American people 
love to use titles, and most persons who have obtained 
a Doctor's degree would be greatly shocked at having 
the title omitted when they are addressed." 

Several university presidents were quoted by a 
New York newspaper, not long ago, as holding the 
same views, as to undesirability of the title of Doctor, 
as Mr. Butler's. The others, however, did not go 
so far as to want to deprive medical doctors of it, 

At the University of Virginia some of the faculty 
members formed last year an organization called the 
Society for the Rationalization of the Title of Doctor. 
A study of the by-laws of this body convinced an 
inquirer that the word Extinction would describe its 
purpose better than Rationalization. Most of the 
founders of the organization are themselves Ph.D's. 


Under the heading "Reorganizing our Organic 
Chemical Industry" an important journal, Chemical 
and Metiillurgica'l Engineering, carries the following 
editorial which should be of interest to Carolina folk 
as the principal name. Dr. Charles H. Herty, is that 
of a former professor in the University: 

"An event of historical importance to the chemical 
industry occurred in Washington last week and re- 
sulted in the organization of the Synthetic Organic 
Chemical Manufacturers Association. This new eco- 
nomic factor carries with it more significance than the 
usual trade association, for it marks the union of all 
the elements which go to make up our organic chemi- 
cal industry. The manufacture of pharmaceuticals, 
synthetic drugs, aromatic, photographic and other 
tine chemicals is to be recognized as essential, if not 
equivalent, part of an industry of which dyes and 
intermediates are only an important branch. 

"The association has wisely selected Dr. Charles H. 
Herty, editor of the Journal of Industrial and Engi- 
neering Chemistry, to be its first i^rcsideut. His vigor- 
ous enthusiasm and indomitable spirit have won for 
him a position second to none in the fight for the ade- 
quate recognition of American chemical industry."

On October 19, Dr. Archibald Henderson, as the 
repi'esentative of the University of North Carolina, 
attended the inauguration of J. A. C. Chandler 
as president of William and Mary College at Wil- 
liamsburg, Virginia. Institutions as old as one hun- 
dred years alone were invited to send representatives. 
The occasion was especially notable, being attended 
by President Harding, Secretary of State Hughes, 
Mr. Hoover, Judge Alton B. Parker, Dr. Harry A. 
Garfield, among many others of distinction. On 
November 3 Dr. Henderson was principal speaker 
at the University of Virginia at the unveiling and 
dedication of a bronze monument to George Clark, 
"Conqueror of the Northwest," designed by Robert 
Aitken, of New York, president of the National Sculp- 
tor's Societ}'. Dr. Henderson, who has been con- 
ducting a seminar during the fall term on Einstein's 
theory of relativity, has also recently published three 
articles in the Greensboro News entitled "Relativity, 
a Romance of Science." 

At the recent medical meeting at Pinehurst Dr. 
Foy Roberson, '05, of Durham, was elected a member 
of The Southern Surgical Association. This is the 
most coveted honor that comes to a surgeon in 
the south. Dr. Roberson is the fifth member from this 
State. At the Pinehurst meeting the greatest sur- 
geons in America (and this means in the world) were 
present: Mayo, Ochsner, Gibbon (Philadelphia), 
Morris, Bloodgood, Finney and others.

tioner was an old Universitj' boy, and 
such he was— Dr. K. T. S. Steele, '95, a 
prominent citzen of Williamsport, who 
s.^tled there after graduation at the 
University. When I told him of the 
large expansion, authorized liy the last 
General Assembly, his enthusiasm was 
what might have been expected of a 
son of Col. Walter L. Steele, of Eocking- 
ham. The boys of Chapel Hill travel far, 
some of them go from the campus and 
live in remote cities and in foreign lands, 
but there is something in the days at 
Chapel Hill that makes them love it 
no matter where they reside or how- 
many years have elapsed since they drank 
out of the old college well. Br. Steele 
felt proud and happy when I was able 
to tell him that the new dormitory — the 
Steele, named for his distinguished father 
— was completed. I truly believe the 
man would be a boy agaiu and be a 
father too, and that if he were not mar- 
ried he would like to go to Chapel HiU 
again and room in the Steele building. 

"It is gratifying to see North Caro- 
linians leading in good works. Dr. 
Steele was a leader in the campaign 
wliich raised $600,000 for a Y. M. C. A., 
and he was a member of the building 
committee. Williamsport is about twice 
as big a's Raleigh. Raising $000,000 for 
a Y. M. G. A. speaks volumes for the 
liberality and prosperity of the people."
