Music on the Campus 

Elsewhere in tliis issue is presented a story of the 
growtli of interest and actual achievement in music 
on the campus which to those who have worked to 
make possible within the University a more varied 
culture is, or should be, altogether heartening. Within 
the brief period of two and a half years, the glee club, 
the orchestra, the band, to mention only the under- 
graduate organizations alone, have been brought to a 
point that their performances are highly creditable, 
and the men who have made places in them have, 
consciously or otherwise, come to appreciate some of 
the fine things in music. 

Fortunately these benefits have not been confined 
solely to the organizations. Through monthly recitals 
in the chapel or churches, through the coming of 
special artists such as Sophie Braslau, David Bispham, 
the Letz Quartet, through choruses and operas par- 
ticipated in by soloists from the outside and by mem- 
bers of the student body and the local community, a 
more definite appreciation of music has beea efl'ected 
and the musical standards of the University, and 
therefore of the State, have been advanced. 

It isn't for The Review to award or withhold praise 
for such accomijlishments as these. But it cannot fail 
to say to Mr. Paul John Weaver and his associates in 
the department of music, that it notes these accom- 
plishments and finds the keenest sort of pleasure in 

D n n 

Establish a Singing Tradition 

While music is the subject before us there are two 
groups of the Universitj^'s constituency to whom we 
are going to take the liberty of offering suggestions — 
the class of 1922 and the alumni. 

Never, so far as we know, has the University had 
for any protracted period of time a robust singing tra- 
dition. There have been sporadic attempts to sing 
under the Davie Poplar and down on the street. But 
the tradition of campus singing has, unfortunately, 
never been formed or adhered to. 

In this juncture we see no reason why the tradition 
should not be formed. If the lack of .skilled directors 
has hitherto been the cause that hindered, it is now 
removed. If, again, the student body was not large 
enough to insure a sufficient number of good voices, 
that difficulty, too, has passed. And certainly no 
campus to the north of us whose traditions for group 
singing run back through the years, has a more 
open sea.son than ours. 

D D n 

Suggested Letters 

Brethren of the Ahiuuii A.ssociation, it's too late 
for you to establish this tradition. 

But that doesn't mean there is no contribution you 
can make to this musical program. Par from it. 

In order that you may know just what your op- 
portunity in this particular is. The Reviev? takes the 
liberty of dictating, for your convenience, four let- 
ters, any one of which .President Chase, backed by the 
whole campus, will be tickled to death to receive. 
Here they are : 

1. My dear Mr. President: Several years ago 
while I sat in the Boston Sjauphony hall at a " popu- 
hir" concert, at which "popular" music was given (I 
use tiic word in its best nuisical sense) and found 
that I recognized only two of thq twelve selections ren- 
dered, I decided that some day I would send the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina a check for 125,000 for 
a pipe organ so that my successors in the student 
body might at have the opportunity of hearing 
a good organ on the campus now and then. I under- 
stand Memorial Hall has been converted into a satis- 
factory auditorium, and I therefore hand you here- 
with a check for the amount and purpose indicated 

2. Dear Dr. Chase : When I was a student at the 
Hill the old rattletrap of a piano in Gerrard Hall 
had shed most of the ivory from its keys. If you are 
still using it, I suggest that you place it in your 
historical museum — its age justifies that disposition of 
it— and draw on me for a first-class Steinway Grand 
Piano to replace it. 

3. Dear Mr. President : I notice from the papers 
that the alumni of the A. and E. (A. and M.'s what 
they used to call 'emselves) are sending their band up 
to the Hill to give a free concert to the student 
body. That's pretty fine, I think; and for fear that 
we can't return the favor some day because of lack 
of band instruments (we didn't have any in my day, 
and from what I hear you haven't any too many now) 
I 'm sending you a check for .$500. You know, or Dr. 
Weaver knows, what to do with it. 

4. My dear President Chase : Some time ago I 
read in The Review that the University Library did 
not contain a single volume of music by classic au- 
thors. Recently I saw a set of the Musical Library 
in eighty-five volumes issued by Oliver Ditson which, 
upon inquiry, I find your librarian could acquire 
for approximately $250. In order that a collection of 
this nature may be made accessible, I enclose a Li])erty 
Bond that can be sold for that amount. If, in the 
meantime, you have secured the set, apply the money 
to the purchase of additional works in this field.

To Promote Campus Unity 

One of the questions which alumni frequently ask 
members of the Universit.y community is whether or 
not the campus is thoroughly assimilating the largely 
increased number of new matriculates and handing 
down to them the Universily's best traditions. 

It is a very thoughtful sort of question and in the 



very nature of the case cannot be answered with a 
direct yes or no. But it can be said that with the 
utilization of Memorial Hall as an auditorium, the 
matter is not nearly so serious as it was only twelve 
months ago. 

Two steps have recently been taken by President 
Chase which tend to make reasonable assurance on this 
point doulily sure : namely, that hereafter he will hold 
the office hour of 10 to 11 every day open to stu- 
dents; and on Friday, his regular morning for 
speaking at chapel, he will from time to time talk par- 
ticularly aboiit the traditions and activities of the 

Both of these methods of establishing personal and 
institutional points of contact must of necessity be 
highly beneficial and should lead to a finer type of 
campus unity. 

D D □ 

Has Faculty Unity Suffered? 

While proper assimilation of the student body has 
been of first importance, it may be equally important 
to inquire whether or not the rapidly growing faculty 
is being thoroughly assimilated, and if not, what 
means should be taken to bring this about. 

Keference to the October issue of The Review will 
show that twenty-eight new instructors were added 
to the teaching staff of the University this year; or, 
to repeat an observation made by a trustee of the 
class of 1886, just three times plus one the number of 
members of the entire faculty when he was a student 
here! The whole instructional staff then numbered 

Added to the difficulty imposed by greatly enlarged 
numbers, is that of wider separation in residential 
districts. Formerly the faculty was domiciled in one 
( r two sections at most. Now there are the Cobb Ter- 
race development. Park Place, and University Heights, 
with individual residences being erected wherever land 
happens to be available, and, obviously, general visit- 
ing is placed under a correspondingly heavy handicap. 
Furthermore, with the creation of administrative 
boards which in the main shape the policies of the 
various schools, a great deal of routine work of the 
University which formerly was considered in the 
general faculty meetings, is now administered by the 
individual schools concerned. Here again, frequency 
of faculty contact has decidedly suffered. 

In fact, as The Review sees it, the day of frequent 
and easy association, with quick assinnlation, is gone, 
and cannot be brought back unless some new method 
of procedure is devised. 


We Suggest Several Remedies 

The Review doesn't know what the best means is 
of insuring this desired unity. It may be an oc- 
casional informal smoker, or the creation of a faculty 
council sufficiently large to bring varied interests to- 
gether for the discussion of University affairs; or, a 
different type of general faculty meeting; it may be 
(we should especially like to see it tried) the establish- 
ment of a faculty club at some spot on the campus 
easily accessible to all and sufficiently attractive to 
draw the whole group into a closer, warmer fellow- 
ship. Again it may not be any one of these things; 

but whatever it is, it should be discovered and utilized ; 
for the unity of purpose and spirit which we have in 
mind can be our most priceless possession. 

D D D 

Questions Fill the Air 

The burning of the University Inn and its subse- 
quent removal have proved extremely interesting and 
diverting in and of themselves. Everybody was at 
the fire, and everybody has stood around as the campus 
forces under Superintendent Pickard have cleared the 
debris away. 

But interest in the matter has gone much further 
than that. It has turned loose no end of speculation 
as to what disposition the committee on buildings and 
grounds and the trustee building committee will make 
of the site. And at the same time it has given rise 
to a multitude of questions of varying import relative 
to the whole program of campus development the most 
immediate of which are : Is the Inn to be replaced by 
an attractive, imposing University building? What 
building scheme will make the section of the campus 
between Franklin street and Cameron avenue more 
open without the sacrifice of buildings? What are 
the plans for the whole development, whether north 
or south, east or west, of the South building? 


We Do Not Expect a Fee 

The Review has never received a handsome fee 
for suggestions concerning the artistic development of 
lawns or parks. It probably never will. Nevertheless, 
inasmuch as this seems to be an open season for com- 
ment its opinion concerning the development of this 
particular section of the campus may just as well be 
expressed as some of the others it has heard. Accord- 
ingly, it follows : 

The Inn site should by all means be utilized, and 
the building which is placed on it should be one of 
the most imposing in the campus group. 

It should be placed in proper relation to the street, 
the Alumni building, and Old East, as it is absolutely 
essential, artistically, to the completion of the east 
side of the main quadrangle of the campus. There are 
a number of similes we could employ to emphasize 
the effect which the omission of such a building would 
produce in the appearance of the campus — broken 
frames, missing teeth, etc. — but we do not believe it 
necessary to add them to convey our meaning. We 
reserve them for future use if the contrary opinion 
reaches the point of seeming to prevail ! 

n D n 

How to See the Campus 

We are heartily in sympathy with those who wish 
to make it eas.y for the visitor to see something of the 
campus as he rides along Franklin street. That should 
certainly be done. But it should be done not b.y leav- 
ing the Inn site vacant, but by cutting down under- 
brush, removing unsightly offices, eliminating parts of 
the rock wall inside the campus and parallelling 
Franklin street from the Episcopal Church to the D. 
K. E. house, and opening walkways and vistas from 
the street into the heart of the campus. 

Tills done, the following would be the sequence 
of buildings and open views into the campus from 



east to west: (1) The President's House; (2) the 
Raleigh road; (3) the "Alexander" yard; (4) the 
Ejiiseojjal Church; (5) the Barbee meadow and orch- 
ard with views leading south from the rock wall and 
along the border of the Arboretum to Davie Hall ; 

(6) a perfect quadrangle with the Barbee residence 
and Chemistry Hall comprising the east frame, New 

East tlie end piece, and Old East. Alumni, and the 
new building on the site of the Inn, the west frame ; 

(7) the main axis of the campus with the well and 
the South building in the distance; and (8) finally, 
the new dormitories and new Methodist Church with 
the A. S. Barbee office and the S. il. Barbee residence 
cleared awa.y to Poister 's store on the west. 

In this way the dominating buildings on the street 
would catch the eye, and the walks and the sweep of 
green and lines of buildings beyond would hold and 
delight it. 

D D D 

All of Us Are Interested 

But this opinion, given, seemingly, with quite a good 
deal of positiveness, will not dispose of the particular 
matter to which it relates. That would l)e taking it 
far too seriou.sly, as it merely summarizes our first 
attempt at campus planning. Possibly it does one 
thing more. Now that the program for the first two 
years is definitelj' under way, it leads us to voice the 
hope of the campus that from time to time the com- 
mittees concerned will find opportunity to say a word 
in answer to the hundreds of questions such as these 
that are on the lips of everyone. What is the plan 
for the South building? Will the library remain 
where it is? If so, can it be properly enlarged? Is 
there any advantage in housing the administration in 
a central building? Will there be a faculty club? 
If so, where? Where is the railroad station to be 
located? When is .Persoil Hall to come down? And 
the Y ? Is the Stadium to be enlarged ? Is there a 
blue print or black and white sketch available for con- 

Again we say, the campus and ahimni are tremend- 
ously interested in all of these matters, and while 
these questions cannot and should not be answered 
with finality now, frequent statements concerning 
them will be greatly appreciated. 

Later : Since the foregoing paragraphs have been 
written the consulting architect has visited the cam- 
pus and it is reported that he agrees with us as to 
the Inn site 1 At the January meeting of tlic faculty 
the matter of a faculty club was also discussed, with 
the appointment of a committee to investigate and 
report. — Editors.

Our "Chest" is Justifiable 

Since the adjournment of the legislature in 1921 
University alumni and North Carolinians generally 
have become (juite "chesty" over the building pro- 
gram of the University and the tying together of the 
widely separated ends of the State with a sure-enough 
system of roads. And rightly so. 

But some of our sister Southern States have been 
waking up, too; Virginia alumni and their friends 
added something over $l,r)0(),000 to the endowment 
fund of the University of Virginia during 1921. Be- 
ginning October 11, or thereabouts, Georgia alumni 

put over in a thirty-daj' drive a $1,000,000 endowment 
campaign. Alabama has also been doing spectacular 
stunts recently. 

iAnd now, through her constitutional convention (we 
need one in North Carolina in order that the State 
may be provided with garments which will match 
her present size and growth, instead of the swaddling 
clothes in which she is at present wrapped) and 
legislature, Louisiana is doing something that is 
really eye-filling. 

D D D 

But Here's Something 

To Put in Our Pipes and Smoke 

Without further comment to distract you, we turn 
you Icose on the following excerpts from the Louisiana 
constitution. Don 't skip it because the type is small — 
or because it may contain an idea ! 

"Article XII, Section 17. There shall be appropriated ex- 
clusively to the maintenance and support of the Louisiana 
State University and Mechanical College all revenues derived 
and to be derived from the seminary fund, the agricultural and 
mechanical college fund, and other funds or lands donated 
or to be donated by the United States to the State of Louisiana 
for the use of a seminary of learning or of a college for the 
benetit of agricultural and mechanical arts. For its endowment 
and support there shall be levied annually, beginning on Jan- 
uary 1, l!t25, a tax of one half of one mill on the dollar of the 
assessed valuation of all the taxable property in the State ; 
but if the proceeds of this tax exceed one million dollars 
($1,000,000.00) in any one year, the excess shall be trans- 
ferred to the general fund; provided, that nothing in this 
section shall be construed as prohibiting the Legislature from 
making such additional appropriations as may be necessary. 

"After July 1, 1922, and imtil January 1, 1925, the State 
severance or license tax on natural resources up to tive million 
($.3,000,000.00) dollars shall be appropriated to the said 
Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical 
College for its maintenance, support, and improvement, and 
for the construction of additional buildings and equipment; 
provided, that there shall be tirst reserved and appropriated 
annually out of the proceeds of said State severance tax or 
Ueense not exceeding two hundred and fifty thousand ($250,- 
000.00) dollars for the supervision and collection of the tax 
or license and the administration of conservation laws." 

In addition to the above Constitutional provisions, the Legis- 
lature in 1920 appropriated the residue of the severance tax 
up to July 1, 1922, to the University "for the further develop- 
ment and maintenance of the agricultural department," be- 
sides doubling the annual appropriations for support. This 
"Residue" will amount to about $2,000,000.00 Thus the 
University should receive from the severance tax about 
$7,000,000.00 up to January 1, 1925, after which date the 
severance tax will be turned into the general fund and the 
University will be supported by the half mill tax, which will 
produce $1,000,000.00 a year.

Page the Commencement Programers 

Mr. Alunuii Secretary, please page the president of 
the University, the faculty and alumni committees on 
commencement, and all your fellow alumni who are 
now (or should be) setting down the dates June 11-14 
to be reserved against all contingencies so as to insure 
the presence of said alumni here on this topsy-turvy, 
i-unning-over-with-building-operations campus when 
llic oratdi-s (if the class of 1922 are telling their elders 
how to run the show. 

For we have picked up out of the woolly west (and 
the staid east also) some ideas which are after all 
nothing more than ideas, and should receive consider- 
ation as such* 



Week-End Commencements? 

The Urst blows fresh from Northwestern University 
Alumnus under the above caption minus the question 

What about a week-end I'oiuiueiicemeut ? Or at least a week- 
end Alumni Day? 

The Universities of the Big Ten and others are studying 
this now with a great deal of interest. 

Michigan, for the first time, will go next June to a schedule 
that places Alumni Day ou Saturday, Baccalaureate Sunday 
and Conimeucemeut Monday. Ohio State has had such a 
schedule for some time, commencement comiug ou Tuesday. 
Chicago uses a compromise in that it places Alumni days on 
Friday and Saturday, and to a large degree sends the Alumni 
home while the commencement events string along to the 
following' Thursday. Cornell does the same. Illhiois com- 
mencement is gradually fading out in favor of Home-Coming 
Day. Wisconsin Alumni want the weekend. Minnesota is 
studying the question. 

The principal arguments against the week-end commence- 
ment seem to be the feasibility of getting in enough weeks 
of work and allowing sufficient time for examination. Tradition 
is probably a strong factor in the retention of the old system. 
The alumni have only recently been considered. Commeuce- 
ment has been a thing for the faculty and graduating class. 

In favor of the week-end commencement one writer says: 
' ' All the logic of modern business efficiency, reasonableness 
and convenience for the returning graduates is in favor of 
the week-end plan.'' A class president writing in the Colum- 
bia Alumni Neivs, says: ''A young alumnus cannot afford to 
take time other than a week-end away from his business, 
and if he stays away three times, the stay-away habit is 
formed. ' ' He stated further : ' ' Wliat would the suggested 
change mean to. all concerned ? To the alumni it would mean 
that everybody could attend the events of interest to him, 
to the undergraduate it would mean added enthusiasm caused 
by the increased attendance, to the University it would mean 
constantly increasing support from a larger body of alumni. 

Ohio State Ahimni Monthly says: "Commencement is one 
thing. Alumni Day is another. The greater of these is 
Alumni Day." 

A request for this kind of week-end program is now be- 
fore our University Council. It has the support of the North- 
western University Alumni Association and the Chicago Club 
of Northwestern University Men. 

D D D 

Why Not Use the Grass 

and Trees and Running Brooks? 

The second comes from Harvard and the University 
of Virginia. Last June we happened around when 
Harvard was in the thick of Alumni Day proceedings. 
We didn't hear President Lowell's address to the 
alumni, but we saw the speakers' stand and the seats 
all out in the open and framed in by three sides of a 
beautiful, ivy-bedecked quadrangle. 

And at 6 o'clock out on the green under the spread- 
ing maples and eluLs, we joined a thousand other 
guests at a spread which, while it lacked all the for- 
mality (and speech-nmking) of the affairs iii Swain 
Hall, made us happ.y that we were alive. 

We have just laid down a copy of the Virginia 
Alumni Bulletin which contains two excellent full- 
page cuts, the first showing the Amphitheater (an 
e.xquisite bit of ancient Greece set down in the hills 
of ' ' Old Virginia ' ' ) itself ; and the second the Am- 
phitheater in use for the graduating exercises on 
commencement day last June. 

We haven't a thing to say in advocacy of the ap- 
plication of these ideas (or any others they may sug- 
gest) to our annual ceremonial. But Mr. Alumnus, 
have you ever stopped to think, after you have 
watched the seniors smoke the pipe of peace out under 
the Old Davie Poplar, and seen the lengthening shad- 
ows streak the sweep of green to north and south, 

what it might mean to you to slip into the place 
vacated by the seniors, or walk over to a long table 
close by loaded with spring chicken, potato salad, 
sliced tomatoes, crisp lettuce, etc., with creams and 
ices and coffee, and your own special brand of smokes, 
and then, perchance, catch the strain of the orchestra 
or the silver note of a woodthrush 's goodnight song ? 

Of course, the fellow who reached the table just 
before you might get the piece of chicken which 
tickles your palate most ; or, it might rain ! But 
wouldn't you like to take the chance once? 

n D n 

Begin Commencement Planning Now 

One word more about commencement. The event 
is just four months off. This means that all plans for 
reunions and the special features which they involve, 
should be gotten underway at once. In recent years 
Alumni Day has steadily forged to the front as the 
big day of commencement, and this year is to be the 
banner year. For, as we said last month, this is an 
alumni year. 

D D D 

New Bottles for New Wine 

If it is permissible to mention wet subjects in a 
supposedly parched land, it may not be amiss to raise 
a question as to the age of some of the bottles into 
which the new wine of the campus is flowing. Of 
course it isn 't comfortable to have an official inspector 
nosing around, and sometimes we doubt whether such 
a body ever uncovers anything that is particularly 
valuable. On the contrary, we believe that the best 
results are obtained when various members of different 
interested groups get together and carry on a joint, 
unofficial investigation. 

We haven't anything particular in minu, but 
mightn't it be worthwhile for every student organ- 
ization, every committee entrusted with the doing of 
some special thing, every department and school, 
every administrative officer or office, to see whether 
the gear is set to do the new, larger work of the Uni- 
versity in a thorough-going complete way? 

For example let us look at the long line of students 
waiting by the hours, during the opening days, to 
pay their matriculation fees. The one long line might 
be divided into several shorter lines.

A Service to High School Seniors 

One of the most interesting of the many memoranda 
turned into President Chase's office during the year 
was that by Mr. Dan Grant, former editor of the Tar 
Heel and member of the class of 1921. Summarized 
briefly, it made the point that the most opportune 
time for interesting high school seniors in attending 
college was in the spring, prior to graduating, and that 
definite, organized effort should be made, not so much 
to influence the prospective graduates to go to some 
particulur college, but rather, to go to college. In 
a number of towns visited by Mr. Grant last summer 
he found graduating classes which, seemingly, had 
never considered seriously the matter of college train- 
ing. For them, the completion of the high school 
course was the end. 

In the larger towns in wliich Y, Rotary, and Ki- 
wanis organizations are found, the subject of school 



and cnllcpe attendance I'oceives an incroasing amount 
of oonsidoration. But in the smaller eonimunities un- 
fortuuately this fre((ueutly is not the ease, and in 
this very fact we believe there exists an opportunity 
for real service on the part of Carolina alumni. 
"Whether the graduates come liere or not, the value 
of seeurin? additional trainin<;- somewhere ought by 
all means to be made clear, and we know of no group 
of citizens better qualified to do this than Carolina 
alunnii. i\Ir. Grant is now out in the State at work 
on this program. Alunnii assistance will be of value 
to liim.

Our Lively Contemporary Scores 

"Knowing Nortli Carolina" (not "Seeing North 
Carolina," at once the pleasant diversion of Major 
Bruce Craven and the delight of his readers in the 
Greensboro Daily News) has been the principal ob- 
jective of the University' News Letter since its found- 
ing back in 1914. In season and out, it has minutely 
studied the varied pliasps of Nortli Carolina life, and 
through its five weekly columns has given, in exceed-

Now, after seven years, it takes on a new group 
of co-workers. At its meeting last sunnner, the North 
Carolina Press Association formally resolved to pro- 
mote tliis particular thing, enabling North Carolinians 
to know their home State and The. News Letter becomes 
the medium through which the association's program 
will be carried out. Articles will first appear in the 
News Ljetter and will thereafter be copied and com- 
mented upon by tJie press as a whole. 

We have frequently had occasion to felicitate our 
campus contemporary on the fine purposes to whieh it 
lends itself. In this in.stanee we make one of our 
most profound bows.

What a Hotel Would Do 

The following note from Sehool and Society for 
January 7 shows how the hotels of Madison, Wiscon- 
sin, help extend the influence of the state university 
and at the same time earn dividends on good liard 
American dollars : 

Tlip TTnivcrsity of Wisconsin was host on Docpmber 28, 29, 
anil .'!0, to four sorictios: American Association of Teachers of 
Journalism, ■American Association of College News Bureaus, 
.\ssociation of .\merii-an Schools and Departments of Journal- 
ism, and Central Division of the National Association of 
Teachers of Advertising. 

With proper hotel facilities, the University could 
})riMg a convention a week for thirty weeks to Chapel 
Hill, and dividends to the iiicii wlio made the facilities

A Doubly-Appreciated Gift 

Tiie library of the University received early in 
January a volume whieh the University appreciates 
on two distinct counts, first of its worth as 
an unusually sigjiifieant acquisition, and second be- 
cause the library was recognized as one of the seventy 
in the country in which it was desired that copies 
should be placed for preservation and use. 

The gift in question, made through Luigi Carnovale, 
of Chicago, in behalf of the Italians residing in the 
United States, in commemoration of the six-hundredth 
anniversarj^ of the death of Dante, is a complete 
photostatic reproduction of the manuscript (Codiee 
Trivulziano) of the "Divina Commcdia" of Dante 
transcribed liy Ser Francesco di Ser Nardo da Bar- 
berino of Florence, in 1337, thirteen years after the 
deatli of Dante. Through a special process of color 
photography, not only every detail of the original 
manuscript, but the illuminations of the text, are 
accurately reproduced, and with its handsome brown 
leather binding, the volume becomes one of the 
library's choicest possessions.

The Railroad Comes to Town 

.As will be seen by reference to the picture on an- 
other page the Chapel Hill "Limited" has made the 
distance from Carborro to a point immediately back 
of the South building on the schedule, May 1 to Jan- 
uary 12, wliich, judged by the rate at which the 
"Limited" usually runs, is pretty fast time. 

Special consideration should be given the picture, 
as it not only shows tlie engine and first car of freight 
delivered to the new building, but also the new Steele 
dormitory, a picture which has not previously ap- 
peared in The Review. In this picture there is" final 
convincing evidence that the railroad is here and 
that coal can lie pitched from a coal car directly into 
the coal bins under the gymnasium, or that a string 
of sleepers for the Carolina-Virginia classic in 1923, 
can be switched otf within 100 yards of the entrance 
of Emerson Field. 

The Journal of the Geological Society of Tokyo for 
Septemljer 20, 1921, contains an account of Prof. 
Collier Cobb's investigations in the Orient, and also 
reviews a number of his publications that have proved 
interesting and useful to the Japanese. The article 
mentions first his little book on Common Rocks and 
Rock Minerals, which was jn-epared for the use of 
liis own students in the LTniversity of Nortli Caro- 
lina._ Earlj/ English Survivals on Ilatteras Islands 
has its parallel in the dune strip liordering the Japan 
Sea, as seen in the Niigata dialect. The Forests of 
North Carolina has proven of great interest in a 
country where a tree is almost an object of adoration. 
Work done by Mr. Cobb in the Dismal Swamp many 
years ago and mentioned in Shaler's paper is re- 
viewed in some detail ; but more space is given to 
The Landes and Dunes of Gascony than to any other 
paper by Profe.s.sor Cobb, the entire account occupying 
nearly four columns of the journal. This appreciative 
review of the work of the visiting professor is from 
the pen of Professor B. Koto, head of the department 
of geology of the Imperial University of Tokyo. 

A new use for the stadium at the University of 
Iowa was found early in the fall when one section 
of it was used as an auditorium. Convocation, with 
1,000 students and the entire faculty present, was 
held in it, the rostrum for the speakers and "band 
being immediately below and in front of the con- 
crete stand. 




Enthusiastic holiday banquets were held by alumni 
in Asheville, Gastonia, Goldsboro, Lexington, Reids- 
ville, Rockingham and Tarboro. The Review records 
herewith brief accounts of these banquets together 
with aecoiuits of banquets which were held last ITni- 
versitj' day at Dunn, Pittsboro, Roanoke Rapids, 
Rocky Mount and Dallas, Texas. 


One huiidrod ami fifty alumni, students and prospective stu- 
dents of the University staged at the Battery Park Hotel, 
Asheville, on December 2(5 the largest and most enthusiastic 
banquet in the history of the Buncombe County Alumni Asso- 
ciation. Carl B. Hyatt acted as toastmaster and speeches 
were made by Haywood Parker, Julius Martin, Jr., J. Y. Jor- 
dan, Jr., and G. Spears Reynolds. Grady Reagan and Andy 
Smith enlivened the meeting %vith snatches of song. George 
Stephens sprung the surprise of the evening, this feature con- 
sisting of a full reel of the 1919 football game with Virginia, 
from which North Carolina emerged victorious. The banquet 
was a most successful occasion and resulted in the strengthen- 
ing of Carolina interests not only in Asheville but through the 
entire western section. R. R. Williams served as president 
through the past year. New oflScers were elected : T. S. Rol- 
lins, '04, president; C. K. Hughes, '17, vice-president; D. M.

pible in behalf of our Alma Mater." 


The Harnett Couiity Alumni Association was entertained at 
a delightful barbecue in Dunn on October 12 by Mr. and Mrs.

tive students, with lady friends of all, gathered at the Bap- 
tist Annex, Gastonia, on the evening of December 28 for the 
eleventh annual .I'oint banquet of the Gaston County Alumni 
Association and the Gaston County Club. The occasion proved 
a gala affair indeed, the largest and most successful in the

dent; E. R. Rankin, '13, secretary; and Thos. J. Brawley, '20, 


The Wayne County Alumni Association held its annual ban- 
quet in Goldsboro on January 2. Joe A. Parker, president of 
the association, presided as toastmaster, and the occasion was 
one of much profit and pleasure to all present. Lionel Weil, 
Kenneth Royall and W. B. Fort spoke for the graduates and 
Talbot Parker for the undergraduates. The chief speaker was 
Dr. L. R. Wilson, of the University faculty, who dwelt parti- 
cularly on the development of the University in its physical 
property, its scholastic standards, and its sphere of useful- 
ness. The association voted its hearty support to the Carolina 
Playmakers who were scheduled soon for a performance in 
Goldsboro, and appointed a committee to confer with the ath-

one of the most delightful occasions in the history of this live 
wire organization. W. R. Dalton, president of the association, 
presided as toastmaster. The principal address was made by 
a visiting alumnus, E. D. Broadhurst, of the class of '99, of

the community. Roanoke Kapids is a 100 per cent Carolina 
city. All the boys who graduated from the local high school 
in 1921 are now at the University and very nearly all who 
finished in 1920 are likewise at Carolina. Chas A. Wyche, '01, 
is president of this association, and Rev. L. N. Taylor, '10, is

spoke of alumni participation in and their part in carrying 
through North Carolina 's great building program. W. N. Ev- 
erett, in sj>caking of the great program ahead of the Univer- 
sity, gave high praise to Governor Cameron Morrison for his 
championship of bond issues and to Geo. A. Holderness for 
joining legislative forces with the building vision of President 
Graham in 1917, the first step in the big building enterprise. 
The following students spoke: C. Y. Coley, D. E. Scarborough, 
Claud Milham, A. L. Hogan, Le Grande Everett, Jr. H. S. 
Everett '20, and J. S. Terry, '18, medical students at Hopkins

The New R.\ilroad with Carbboko in the Distance 




By B. S. LiNDSEY, '20 

From a glee club to a department of music ; from 
temporary travelliiic; orji'anization, giviiip: eacli year 
a few performances of popular music, to a perma- 
nent department of the University, which sends out 
a better glee club, supports a regular University 
orchestra, gives recitals of piano, organ, violin, and 
vocal music, su]iplii's incidental nuisic for jilax's. pro- 
duces complete comic operas, and guarantees pin-form- 
ances by great artists from the outside world — such 
is the development of music in the University. 

Before the war Carolina sent out every year a glee 
clnh which gave ten to fifteen concerts, including one 
or two on the Hill and others in towns where Carolina 
alumni were strong, or where there was a woman's 
college. Each club contained a few real musicians 
and a great many jolly fellows out for a good time. 
As a result, the people of Raleigh, Greensboro and 
Winston-Salem enioved the men as much as the music. 
And the girls of St." Mary's, N. C. C. W.. and Salem ! 
Tlie men worked not for the music but for the trips. 
The clubs advertised the University to some extent, 
but they did comparatively little for it musically. In 
return they received only moral support from the 

Contemporary with these glee clubs was a series of 
brass bands, whose chief function was to add to the 
spirit of the cheering at the games. During each 
summer school there was a choral concert; and there 
were a few miscellaneous performances by outside 
musicians. Such was the musical bill of fare of the 

During the latter part of tlie war tlie glee club 
came to grief, financially and otherwise, and died. 
After the war tliere seemed slight chance of reviving 
it. But a few earnest workers kept an orchestra going, 
gave successful concerts, in chapel and other places, 
and thus encouraged the facultv advocates of music 

to put through their long standing scheme to found 
a regular department of music. 

Weaver Begins Musical Program 

In the fall of 1919 Mr. Paul John Weaver, A.M., 
A.G.O., came to Carolina as director of the new de- 
partment. He had all the qualifications, professional 
and personal, necessar.y to win success in the difficult 
task ahead of liim. He took hold of affairs with 
vigor and gained results from the start. The glee 
club was reorganized, properly trained, and taken out 
in the fall and spring to give programs of real 
musical merit. This does not mean that the music was 
all high-brow stuff; but it was well performed. The 
orchestra was reorganized and trained so well that 
it was soon able to handle nmch of the standard orches- 
tral concert music witli something of the skill and 
charm of professional players. Two crowded houses 
testified to the popularity of the orchestra's two con- 
certs. The orchestra also supplied appropriate music 
for the Carolina Playmakers' dramatic productions, 
and for other occasions, such as the inauguration of 
President Chase. 

In the spring Mr. Weaver produced The Mikado, a 
comic opera by Gilbert and Sullivan, with nine soloists, 
a chorus of forty men and women, and the orchestra. 
This was a huge success musically, dramatically, and 

Sunday Afternoon Recitals Are Popular 

In addition to these major activities Mr. Weaver 
organized monthh^ , Snndaj' 'afternoon concerts of 
piano or vocal music. Large crowds came to these 
free events. He also taught regular courses in theory 
and appreciation of nuisic, and traveled nmch 
throughoiit the State, under the Extension Division, 
giving lectures and recitals, leading community sings,

and organizing choruses. Last, but by no means 
least, the University baelved Mr. "Weaver in bringing 
celebrated nuisieal artists here for concerts. Sophie 
Braslau, David Bispham, and the Letz String Quartet 
have appeared up to date. Othei-s are coming. 

Instructors in Voice and Violin Added 

The next fall, 1920, Mr. Thomas Hoffmann Hamil- 
ton, baritone and vocal teacher, was added to the 
department's force. Jlr. Hamilton took charge of the 
glee club, gave private voice lessons, and acted as 
general assistant to Mr. Weaver in the work of the 
department. The program for the year was largely 
the same as that of the first year, with the addition of 
a community chorus which gave an excellent render- 
ing of Stainer's 2'hc Cnicifixion. The opera performed 
this year was Gilbert and Sullivan's H. M. S. Pinafore. 

Last fall the department was augmented by the 
addition of Mr. Carl Wiegand, an excellent violinist, 
who directs the orchestra and teaches violin pupils. 
With three leaders tlie department has flourislied. The 
glee club went out in the fall with a program whicli 
was easily tlie best in many years. The orchestra 
plays as never l)efore. At one performance by the 
Carolina .Playmakers the plays were actually held up 
because the audience demanded the replaying of 
Rimski-Korsakoft"s Song of India. Several recitals of 
piano, organ, violin, and vocal music have been given. 
On February 8th Planquette's opera. The Chimes of 
Nornuindi/, will l)e presented under 'Sir. Weaver's 
direction, with a cast of 13 principals, chorus of 40, 
and orchestra of 15. Tlie remainder of tlie spring

"Wliat the State has done since a year ago has 
proven a challenge to the entire South, and State after 
State will follow in North Carolina's leadership in 
the splendid interest of future citizenship," President 
H. W. Chase declared to the semi-annual meeting of 
the board of trustees of the University of North Caro- 
lina in session in Raleigh on January 24. 

IMore than 1,600 students, representing 97 of the 
100 counties in the State, have enrolled at the Uni- 
versity during the present term, and enlarged fa- 
cilities now under construction under the provision 
made by the General Assembly during the year will 
make possible the enrollment of 500 more students 
next year, he said, in making his annual report, giving 
in detail the progress of the work at the University 
during the past year. 

Yesterday's session of the board of trustees was 
the most generally attended in recent years. Members 
were here from four western mountain counties and 
from the coast. Routine business and the reading of 
reports from the president and various committees 
occupied the time of the meeting for the most part. 
Col. J. Bryan Grimes, chairman of the building com- 
mittee, gave a detailed report of construction work 
during the year. 

Out of the meeting will probably grow a new and 
adequate hotel building at the University. Impetus 
was given the need when John Sprunt Hill, a trustee 
and leading business man of Durham, declared that 
he would give the Graves' property, recently acquired 
by him, and $10,000 toward the construction of the 
building. A committee, composed of Josephus Daniels, 
chairman ; George Stephens, C. G. Wright and Lind- 
say Warren was named to develop the matter. 

Work on the Community Center building, to be 
erected as a memorial to Edward Kidder Graham, 
president of the University until his death in 1918, 
will likelv get under wav during the coming spring. 
President Chase reported that $122,000 of tlie $150,- 
000 desired had been raised by alumni of the Uni- 
versity. The building committee was asked to take 

the matter in hand, and upon the instruction of the 
executive committee proceed with the construction. 

Memorial resolutions for the late Governor T. W. 
Bickett were directed to be prepared, and Josephus 
Daniels, Walter Murphy and Z. V. Walser, made 
members of the committee to draw up the memorial. 
Members of the executive committe whose terms ex- 
liire this year, Dr. R. H. Lewis, Dr. Chas. Lee Smith, 
Chas. Whedbee, Judge James S. Manning and Judge

The winter quarter opened with 1,656 students 
registered. Of these 45 are new and three are co-eds. 

Samuel Gompers, long time president of the Ameri- 
can Federation of Labor, has been invited to speak 
before the student body and the School of Commerce 
during the spring. A reply to the invitation has 
not yet been received. 

Professor F. H. Koch, while in New York during 
tlie holidays, was invited to bring the Carolina Phay- 
makers to the metropolis. 

According to the Tai- Heel, the December number 
of the Tar Baby (wliieh appeared on the campus in 
January) was "sad — frankl.y, very sad."' 

The work , of clearing away tlie University Inn, 
which was burned on November 30th, has been com- 
pleted and there is much speculation on the campus . 
as to whether or not a new building will be placed on 
the site. 

The "jungle" lying between the Inn and the 
Alumni building and parallelling the rock well run- 
ning east towards the Episcopal Church, has been 
cleared and a permanent walk, extending in a per- 
fectly straight line from west of the library to the for- 
mer residence of President Graham has been opened 
through it. 

Over fifty high schools liave entered the high school 
basketball contest conducted by the Extension Di-

Robert W. Madry, '18, formerly in charge of the 
news service of the University and associate editor of 
The Review, spent the week-end, January 11-14, on 
the Hill. While here he spoke before the class in 
Journalism. Since leaving the University in 1919, 
Mr. Madry was graduated from the School of Jour- 
nalism of Columbia Univesity and has spent eighteen 
or twenty mouths on the news staff of the New York 
Herald in Paris. 

Upon the completion of the new Law School build- 
ing the present Law Imilding is to be eonvei-ted into a 
playhouse for the Carolina Playmakers. 

The stairways leading into Memorial Hall have re- 
cently been replaced with new material and banistei-s 
and i-ailing at each end with the result that the ap- 
pearance of the front has been greatly improved. 
Stairways leading to windows, one on the east and one 
on the west side of the building, have also been added 
in order to lessen the time required for the student to 
enter and leave the building at chapel period. 

As a result of recent negotiations the congregation 
of the local Methodist Church has acquired the office 
of the late A. S. Barbee. When the plans for the 
new church building have been perfected, the office 
will be removed and the ground on which it stands 
will be mei-ged into the chui-ch lawn. 

The State budget committee reviewed the finances 
of the State the last week in December and announced 
tliat sufficient revenue was in siglit to insure State 
institutions of the full amount of the appropriations 
voted last March. The announcement was I'eceived 
with genuine pleasure by the campus.

Come on, old eventually, we've got a 500-worcl, free- 
hand sketch of Frank Page, chairman of the North 
Carolina Highway Commission, to do for Doc. Wilson. 
If it were anybody else except these two, we wouldn't 
do it — but Doc. is about the insistingest fellow tliere 
is, and it's time somebody tried to approximate tlie 
truth about Mr. Frank, his job and the way he is 
measuring up to it. 

But we're glad there are only 500 words to do — 
in an extended article we might tend toward detail 
and the victim of this can and probably would lick 
us, if there were any attempt at sugar-coating him. 

No danger of that, however; it would take too 
danged much sugar. Six feet and some-odd inches of 
man, he-man, crammed full of brains and guts — 
that's Frank Page. None of theseyere purblind op- 
timists alwaj's prating of service, hoping the people 
will understand liis motives, trusting to the ravens to 
feed him. He knows where he is going every minute 
of the day, and when daylight wanes and he hasn't 
covered sufficient distance to suit him he travels at 

Bob Page, former congressman and the choice of 
some thirty thousand of us for Governor, says, ac- 
cording to Tom Bost, that he knows more about roads 
than his In-other, Frank. Having paid our I'espeets 
more than once to Mr. Bob at the polls, we can with- 
out heat enter a positive denial. Frank Page is the 
one man in the State of North Carolina who carries a 
road map of the State in his head and sees the pro- 
jected State system as a unified whole, without re- 
spect to whose land is enhanced in value by having 
a road put through it or whose political pledges are 
delayed in transit. 

Henry Page, State food administrator and yet 
another brother of the five who with Cary, Wake 
County, as Genesis, have made the Page name a 
synonym for getting somewhere without refusing a 
lift to a friend fir a fight to an opponent while way- 
faring, says that Frank is hard-headed. Well, none 
would suspect his cranium of being soft. Anybody 
can get at him and tell him anything; it takes some- 
thing more than telling to convince him. 

Convinced, he is just as ready to do the thing your 
way as his own. But don't go bothering him unless 
you know what you want. He knows no more than he 
cai'es about politics; he'll probably surprise you by 
telling you things about the roads of your own sec- 
tion that you never suspected but which can be veri- 
fied for you while you wait.

Frank Page, '95 
State Highway Commissioner 

poseful friend of us ordinary folk that he was, picked 
Frank Page for chairman of the highway commission 
because the governor was committed to a policy of 
roads to serve the whole people and not merely to 
encourage tourist travel. He was attracted to him 
by the trail Mr. Page and Leonard Tufts had left in 
the Sandhills and the construction work done by 
Lieutenant Page of the A. E. F. in France. 

It might be said here that it could have l)een Major 
Page just as well, if the subject of discussion had 
been willing to go to Alaska to get out spruce for 
the aircraft division. 

Governor Bickelt's belief in his selection for the 
highway commission was shared by the State Good 
Roads Association and the Legislature when it came 
time to revise road legislation, authorize the big bond 
issue and reconstruct the commission itself. Every 
bill offered, every tentative draft of a bill formulated 
provided for the retention of Frank Page as chair- 
man, and Governor Morrison, whatever his feelings 
at the outset were for Ihe brother of Bob who ran 
and Henry, who spoke against him, has accepted his 
predecessor's apjiointee as the biggest single factor in 
the constructive program by force of which the pres- 
ent State administration hopes to make its impress on 

There he is. rouglily done, for liis fellow alumni. 



Direct, plain of speech sometimes to the point of 
bhuituess, eheerfnlly hopeful of results, but always 
storing his powder out of the wet. You'll like him 
when you come in contact with him if you care for a 
painstaking- workmaii who keeps his eye on the line he 
is hewing to and lets the other fellow attend to the

After four and a half years in the University, Rob- 
bins Lowe, '21, accepted in January a position with 
the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company and is now iu 
their Balfimoro office. If Lowe plays the commercial 
game as brilliantly and consisently as he performed 
on gridii-on and diamond, the rival tobacco companies 
may ex|i('i-t touchdowns and home runs at any time, 
especially in the ])inches. Camels are apt to go across 
the goal lines, over the circumscribing fences, over in- 
ternal iona! boundaries, and across seas and oceans into 
all the markets of the woi-ld. 

When it was announced that Lowe had left an af- 
fectionate sigh of universal regret went up from the 
cainpns. He was the hero of this college generation, 
unassuming, clean cut, elfective, and yet off hand in his 
personality, whether he was leading a University ger- 
num, f)reparing a i)a|)ei' in his favorite field of English 
literature, or breaking up ball ganK'S in the critical 
iiuiings by home runs with thi'ce on the bases 
or making decisive touchdowns against Virginia 
while two sta cs looked on in admiration and suspense. 
Last spiing Lowe won four l)aseball games with home 
runs at tlecisive moments. His daslies in 101!) and in 
l!j21 canied the ball across the Mrginia goal line to 
victories, either of which list him high in the line of 

North Carolina imm,ortals and both crown him non- 

The college generations that come will remember 
him for these victories. The college generation that 
knows him now will remember him warmly as student, 
citizen, athlete, and man, who played the game iu all

Editor, The Review: 

Sib: The class of 1902 has just held an election 
of officers bj' mail, with the result that Brent S. Drane, 
of Charlotte, has been elected president and Louis 
Graves, of Chapel Hill, secretary. Other nominees 
who received substantial votes were R. R. Williams, of 
Asheville; Guy Roberts, of Madison; Joseph B. 
Cheshire, Jr., of Raleigh ; J. Ed Swain, of Asheville, 
and Henry M. Robins, of Asheboro. 

A good deal of interest was manifested iu the elec- 
tion and approaching reunion. I have no doubt that 
when commencement comes the class of 1902 will main- 
tain its custom of making the reunion a success, both 
in attendance and in its expression of alumni loyalty 
to the University. 

Yours sincerely, 

I. F. Lewis, '02, 
Retiring Secretary.

Atlanta chamber, was made to Dr. Hoke 
on account of his great work as an or- 
thopaedic surgeon. 

"Dr. 'Mike' Hoke is one of the most 
distinguished of North Carolina's sous. 
His remarkable success in the field of 
orthopaedic surgery has given him a na- 
tionwide reputation. Dr. Hoke is a son 
of the late Gen. Eobert F. Hoke, of Kal- 
eigh, and a brother of Mrs. Alex Webb, 
of this city. General Hoke was one of 
the greatest of the Confederate leaders. 
It is said that General Lee had chosen 
him to succeed in command of the Con- 
federate forces should he be killed. 

' ' Dr. Hoke was captain of the famous 
football team of 1892 at the University 
of North Carolina. Following the game 
in Atlanta when the Tar Heels licked 
the University of Virginia 26 to 0, a 
Confederate veteran stopped Captain 
Hoke as he left the field, muddy and 
bloody from the fray. 

" 'What's your name?' asked the vet- 

" 'Hoke,' replied the victorious cap- 

" 'Any kin to General Hokef ' 
" 'Yes, sir; his son.' 
' ' ' Well, you go back and tell your pa 
that I 've seen the finest fighting today 
tliat I've seen since Ghancellorsville, ' 
said the veteran."
