Alma Mater 

Alma Mater, our institutional mother, unlike our 
dear mother of flesh and blood, is always young, is 
always growing and always needing strength. She 
is a creature of immortal youth and deathless function 
and endless needs. There is about her an eternal fe- 
cundity. Young scions play about her knees in ever- 
increasing numbers while the great grand-children 
come on pilgrimages in her honor. — Edwin A. Alder- 


The Open Door at the University 

A discussion in the State press concerning the en- 
trance requirements of the University and the de- 
sirability of admitting to the University only those 
capable of "taking a mahogany finish" elicited from 
President Chase the following statement which ap- 
peared in the Greensboro Neivs for March 2nd: 

The discussion that has been started by the editorial in 
Tiie Greensboro Daily News some days ago with regard to 
intelligence tests as means for selecting candidates for admis- 
sion to the University has aroused such general discussion 
that I think I should probably say something about the matter. 

TJie Xeirs was somehow misinformed as to the facts. I 
ought perhaps to have said so before, but I didn't — for a 
very human reason : that I was so much interested in the 
debate. It is wholly worth -while, I believe, to have gotten 
people thinking about certain fundamental aspects of higher 
education, and I hope therefore that you will absolve me 
for any delay. 

The University, as a matter of fact, is not proposing to 
use intelligence tests for admission. Entrance to the Univer- 
sity is on the same basis that it has been, with certain minor 
changes in the units counted for admssinn, which changes 
have been adopted by all the colleges and universities of the 
South, which are members of the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Secondary Schools, including six institutions of 
higher education in North Carolina. 

This policy of the open door in higher education is, I am 
convinced, not only the wise one, but the only one which any 
public institution can adopt. It is, naturally, the case that 
there are young people who have not the intellectual stamina 
to profit by a college education. It is also a fact that some- 
times such youth get into our colleges. But, I am convinced, 
in such small numbers that their exclusion would scarcely 
make a ripple on the surface. It must be remembered that 
intellectual ability plays an enormous part in determining 
whether or not a student will stay on and finish high school, 
and, further, that less than half — and broadly speaking, the 
abler h.alf — of high school graduates apply for admission 
to college. In other words, a process of selection has been 
going on for eleven years before admission to college is 

It should further bo remembered that psychological tests 
test merely intellectu.'il cipacity: they take no account of in- 
dustry, perseverance, haliits of study and tlie like, which 
weigh so heavily in determining success or failure in college. 
These are the real points of attack. Almost all students who 
come to college are naturally capable of making good, if they 
will. Those who lack the necessary intellectual calibre, as a 
matter of fact, almost alwaj's soon eliminate themselves. It 
is the student who has not learned how to work, or who avoids 
labor whenever he can, who is the real problem. So far 
as the University is concerned, it is definitely at work on 
this phase of the matter. 

It is a fair question whether, considered from the stand- 
point of intellectual capacity, there are anything like the 
number of students in our colleges that could profitably at- 
tend. This question must, I think, be answered with a 
decided negative. It is estimated by competent .authorities, 
from experience witli army tests that fully 15 per cent of 
the population is competent to benefit by higher education. 
There are enrolled in the colleges of North Carolina today 
a little more than one-fourth of 1 per cent of the State's 
white population. (The average for the country as a whole 
is nearly twice as high). The number of alumni of all our 
colleges in the State amounts, I suppose, to not much more 
than 1 per cent of the population. This certainly doesn't 
look as though the saturation point were anywhere in sight. 
Nor is it. For every student who comes to college there are 
still a half-dozen who ought to come. The colleges must see 
to it that they live up to their responsibilities when they do 
come, but their proper sources of supply have as yet ohly 
been tapped, not even half developed. An ideal system of 
education in a democracy would provide for every youth 
training to the full extent of his powers, and higher educa- 
tion is within the mental grasp of many times the number 
who now avail themselves of it. 


A Way in Which to Help 

From the Yale Alumni WeeMy of February 24 we 
take the following editorial which should be suggestive 
to Carolina alumni organizations. It is especially 
worthy of consideration in view of the statements 
made in the reports of various officers of the Uni- 
versity concerning more flexible funds for the use of 
students in need of assistance while in college. 

The generosity of the Montclair alumni in establishing a 
scholarship fund of $6,000 some time ago, and of the mem- 
bers of the Yale Alumni Association of Essex County (which 
includes the former association also) in pledging in the 
neighborhood of $14,000 for the same purpose at their meet- 
ing last Friday, is indicative of the realization which is 
growing upon the various alumni associations of the part 
which tlicv cnn t.ike in keoniii"' Vale's undergraduate body 
representative territorially and scholastically. 


A Big Job is Being Put Across 

Two stories appearing elsewhere in this issue of 
TiiK Revikw should receive the careful consideration 
of every alumnus, TTow the T^niversity is TTsing its 
Money,"by Louis Graves. '02, and The "Rack Part" 
of the Campus, by Dr. J. M. Booker. 

The story by Mr. Graves sets forth the things ac- 
complished to date by the Trustee Building Commit- 
tee, and The Review, while critical last fall, today 
acclaims the results as wonrlerfully satisfactory. 
Every day the four dormitories register a nearer ap- 
proach to complelinn, ground has been broken for the 
first of the recitation buildings, a swarm of workmen 
are on the job, and every dny at noon Captain Smith 
and the crew of the "Limited" bring in a string of 
freight ears loaded with building material and go 
.scooting away with a string of empties. On every 
hand the work is advancing, and when Alumni Dav 



rolls around those alumni who come back will not be 
able to escape the conviction that a tremendously big 
job is being put across. 


But This is Not the 
Conclusion of the Whole Matter 

But the putting across of this big job, doesn't, as 
Dr. Booker points out, end the matter. There are 
more buildings to follow if the University's program 
is to be carried out ; and in the lull before the next 
round of the program begins. Dr. Booker urges those 
in charge of the campus development to study with 
particular care what he is pleased to call the "Back 
Part" of the campus — the part lying south of the 
campus as provided in the plans now being carried 
out. The article is extremely suggestive, so much so 
that no alumnus interested in the University's physi- 
cal expansion should overlook it. 


Why Not Go Northwest? 

The Review, at this juncture, wishes to raise the 
question why not go northwest as well as east and 
south? Why not acquire the property on the street 
from Foister's store to the Infirmary? If the campus 
must be "zoned," as Dr. Booker suggests, why not 
' ' zone ' ' something in the northwest corner ? Certainly 
it could be made wonderfully useful and attractive, 
and it could be seen! 

It would cost money. Yes. But never any less than 
now. Bought now, rents would take care of the in- 
terest, the indebtedness could be reduced through 
State appropriations over a period of years, and the 
present buildings eould be removed as space require- 
ments demanded. 

Buying and building aren't as simple as building 
without buying, but if there is any way by which the 
University can see its financial way to go to the inter- 
section of Columbia and Franklin streets, we say, let 
her go ! 


What's in a Name? 

Gentlemen of the Alumni Association, the questions 
about music on the campus raised in The Review for 
February have still not been answered. So far as we 
can discover, no one has underwritten the pipe organ 
proposal, the grand piano suggestion, or the modest 
hints as to band instruments and collections of books 
on music. 

But we haven't lost hope. Recently we were read- 
ing an editorial in the Yale Alumni Weekly which 
brings us back to the subject. On one page was a 
reference to the Ilarkness Tower. Elsewhere a refer- 
ence to the Osborn Zoological Laboratory. Another 
to Sprague Memorial Hall. Still another to Battell 
Chapel. And then to the Newberry Organ. 

On the evening before the mid-winter Alumni Uni- 
versity Day, the University Glee Club of New York 
and the Yale Glee Club were to give a concert in Wool- 
sey Hall to the returning alumni "with Professor 
Harry B. Jepson, University organist, at the New- 
berry Organ." 

There you are. Why not have the Winston-Salem 
Glee Club, for instance, come down some time and give 

a joint concert with the University Glee Club in 
Memorial Hall, with Professor Weaver at the who-did- 
you-say organ? 

"Bynum" Gymnasium and "Emerson" Field 
sound awfully good. But why not somebody 's organ ? 


The Alumni Loyalty Fund 

Six years ago just now the Alumni Loyalty Fund 
was launched as a means by which every alumnus 
could contribute in a large or small way to the pro- 
gram of the University. At the close of business on 
February 28, 1922, the fund had grown to $12,770.24, 
with contributions for 1922 coming in and pledges for 
other contributions outstanding. In addition, during 
the six years a number of wills have been drawn by 
alumni with provision made for the Loyalty Fund or 
the University direct, and in a number of other in- 
stances alumni have taken out insurance policies to 
be payable to the fund and graduating classes have 
been thinking in the terms of endowment policies as 
a means of contributing to Alma Mater. 

In dollars and cents, the total amount contributed 
to date is not large. In number of contributors, the 
fund has not involved as many ahimni as is desired. 
But in view of the fact that the war cut across the pro- 
gram, that the Graham Memorial was given right of 
way for two years, and that 1920 and 1921 were years 
of business depression, the achievement is well worth 

Now that the field is clear. The Review suggests to 
the council in charge of the fund that it incorporate 
in order that wills and insurance policies and other 
donations can the more easily be made to it, and to 
all the alumni it would say, get behind the fund and 
make it grow ! 


Conventions and the Union 

Speaking of Inns, and Unions, and conventions, 
read what the Michigan Alumnus of March 2 says 
about their Union, which entertained 125 conventions 
from May 1, 1920, to May 1, 1921 : 

One contribution made by the Mieliigan Union building to 
University life may be taken as a sort of by-product, but a 
by-product nevertheless, of great importance to the Uni- 
versity. Of course, the Union is built for students and alumni ; 
yet it is coming more and more to serve as a place in which 
to entert.nin guests of the University, something Michigan 
has never had before. As a direct result, Michigan now at- 
tracts learned societies in convention assembled, to the great 
benefit of the University's prestige. Hill Auditorium would 
be useless in this matter without the Union building — ^and, 
we should add, the women's dormitories, which provide quar- 
ters for women visitors. 

Thus it comes about that the Union contributes in a really 
vital way to the scholastic standing of the University and 
helps to build up its reputation as a place of learning. Al- 
ready we have had conventions of mathematicians, archaeolo- 
gists, librarians, scientists, and administrative officers, and 
there are more to come. Notable among them will be the 
union meeting of the Modern Language Association, which 
will take place in 1923, and the Ann Arbor Session of the 
American Library Association next June. Michigan is grow- 
ing more popular every year as a place of meeting for these 
learned societies, and it is the Union that makes it possible. 

C. T. Murchison, associate professor of Business 
Economics of the University, has recently contributed 
articles to The Annalist and Drug and Chemical Mar- 
kets on the subject of price maintenance. 




This is a free-lance contribution to a problem 
opened up in The Review bj^ editorials in its February 
issue. The conclusions here summed up are neither 
recent nor hasty. Not a little of the writer's spare 
time during the past nine months has been spent in 
a careful — if untrained — study of the ground, the con- 
tour maps, and the available data involved. The re- 
sults of the time thus spent have confirmed his first 
conception of the problem now to be discussed. 

This problem is the one presented by the so-called 
"back part" of our campus — the southern part. This 
region contains roughly two-thirds of all the Uni- 
versity-owned areas for building sites — that is, con- 
tiguous areas 450 feet above sea-level. In the writer's 
opinion it presents the most immediate and vital of 
the University's building problems — one that becomes 
more ditBcult of solution the longer it is ignored. 
Every brick laid ties another knot in it. 

The major premise upon which the argument for 
an immediate consideration of this problem rests 
should hardly be a matter of disagreement — namely, 
that any part of the site of any institution should be 
developed in relation to the entire site. Neglect of 
this first principle brings the inevitable penalties that 
our University, like many another one, annually pays 
— buildings used for allied purposes scattered; natural 
arteries of communication blocked ; drains, conduits, 
and walks continually torn up and relaid ; time, cn- 
ergj% efficiency, and money wasted ; nature scarred 
and beauty unrealized. 

This elemental matter agreed upon, then, it remains 
to be shown that the site of our University is not only 
the land included in all plans of development so far 
known to the writer, but- also the land known as the 
"back part" of the campus. 

The "Back Part" and the Near Future 

First, the reasons why this land will he needed for 
the buildings to go up out of the next appropriation — 
that is, part of it for some of them. 

The larger buildings to be constructed from the last 
appropriation number seven. In two years the Uni- 
versity will have built nearly a third as many build- 
ings as it already has in use. But these seven build- 
ings are only the beginning of a jilan that must be 
realized "without delay," to borrow a phrase from 
the "Important Facts" pamphlet that went out from 
the President's Office in 1920. 

The plan foreshadowed in "Important Facts" was 
elaborated into a detailed program based on 3000 stu- 
dents and printed in the President's Report of De- 
cember, 1920, pp. 106 ff. According to this program 
the TTniversity will need for teaching purposes nine 
new buildings — namely, those for Law, the Languages, 
History, Physical Education (a Gymnasium), Geol- 
ogy, Pharmacy, Administration and Extension, and 
Women, and an Auditorium, besides additions to 
Swain Hall, Chemistry Hall, the Medical building, 
and the Library. Since that report appeared the 
Auditorium need has been met and the Iniildings for 
Jjaw. History, anrl the Languages ju-ovidcd for. Of 
the nine new teaching buildings needed for 3000 stu- 
dents, then, five remain to be secured. Five sites to 
be found for them. 

Now for the dormitory situation. The same Rejiort 
(1. c. ) shows 

Dormitory capaeitv 469 

Town capacity 611 

Total students housed, December, 1920 1,080 

The Steele Dormitory, since completed, houses 72 

Tlie four dormitories now under construction will house 480 

Total students provided for in 1922-23 552 

"Probable additions to town capacity" (Pres. Rept. l.c) 75 

Total students that can be housed, 1923 1,707 

This leaves 3000 students less 1707 students, or 1293 
students, to be housed. The largest and latest dormi- 
tories house 120 students each. Twelve hundred and 
ninety-three students, therefore, would call for eleven 
new dormitories. 

To house and teach 3000 students, then, the Uni- 
versity will need in addition to the buildings con- 
structed out of the latest appropriation sixteen new 
buildings. That means sixteen new building sites to 
be found. Certainly a campus bounded on the south 
by Emerson Field could take care of the new buildings 
as buildings, but not as units of groups of buildings, 
each group dedicated to special purposes and having 
its individual right to expand physically as it grow-s 
in service. 

"Zone"? The Quicker the Better 

The writer believes that the recognition of the group 
is an essential preliminary to success. Now, he has 
heard expressed a very natural reluctance to segre- 
gating the various interests on the campus. He be- 
lieves this is not a thing that sentiment can or should 
control. "Zoning" is the inevitable result of ex- 
pansion. Zone or not zone ? You can 't stop it ; it 's 
bound to come. It's already here. The close neighbor- 
hood of Caldwell, Davie, Chemistry Hall and the Ge- 
ology attic maj' have been an earlier expression of the 
zoning instinct; Phillips had to be near the power 
center. Now the rise of industrial chemistry impels 
our chemists to go over and zone with Phillips Hall, 
the Power Plant, and the Laundry. Nothing to do but 
to direct this elemental force ; the quicker, the better. 

Since, therefore, the University is zoning itself, any 
building cannot be put down anvwhere. It is not a 
(piestion of filling up gaps : a particularly tempting 
gaj) may hajijien to be the inevitable place for the fu- 
ture physical exjiansion of a building that is in its 
proper neighborhood. It seems almost superfluous to 
add that modern University building programs pro- 
vide for a probable expansion of all but a few of the 
buildings laid down. All this is trite enough. It is 
put down here to recall — not to reveal — the nuignitude 
of the l)uilding task that the University must perform 
"without delay." 

The conclusion is not unwarranted, then, that the 
campus now being developed is inadequate for the 
needs of our immediate future. 

The Distant Future 

And our more distant future? 

Sup|)ose the Kniversity establishes a four-year med- 
ical school here (which means a hospital). 

Suppose it establishes a School of Teciinology. it merely continues to add less ambitious 
"schools" at the comparatively modest speed it has 
already attained — three in the last decade. 

Suppose, calling a halt on the multiplication of 
"schools," it just keeps on (piietly growing. 



Before tlie imagination becomes overheated, the 
writer would submit the conclusion that the campus 
now being developed is inadequate for the distant fu- 
ture — whatever "the distant future" may mean to 
those who would build for permanence. 

Since, therefore, the campus now under develop- 
ment is inadequate for any future— immediate or dis- 
tant—the "back part" of the University property 
must be used. 

First, Make the Hub 

The size of the area needed does not present the only 
big problem; the center of that area is a matter of 
scarcely less consequence. Again a common conclusion 
depends on agreement upon the fundamental axiom, 
namely, the hub of any University plant is its library. 
The products of some of our best minds among Uni- 
versity planners could be brought forward in support 
of that proposition if it were necessary to supplement 
common experience and common sense. It should be 
borne in mind, at the same time, that a library site 
inust provide for two things. The first is expansion — 
not a double or a quadruple, but a many-multiple ex- 
pansion. This is especially true in view of the fact 
that a modern University Library — not a small town 
library such as the University now has — ^is not merely 
a dispensary of books for all ; it is also the laboratory 
for the graduate students in such departments as His- 
tory, Economics, Ancient and Modern Languages, Phi- 
losophy, etc., and as a laboratory it demands seminary 
and consultation rooms adjacent to the stacks used by 
the students in these departments. The second thing 
a library site must provide is plenty of room for the 
class-room buildings of these departments, which are 
so dependent upon the library for their welfare. 

Such being the requirements for a library site in a 
modern University, the writer submits that if the Uni- 
versity is to expand — in the near or distant future — 
over the two-thirds of our building area now known 
as the "back part" of the campus, it might be timely 
to locate approximately a spacious central site and to 
reserve that site for the library and the sites in its 
vicinity for those departments that are most depend- 
ent upon it. 

No More Gravel Mazes 

We have not yet exhausted the main problems in- 
volved in the immediate future of the "back part" of 
the campus. Of the sixteen buildings that remain to 
be erected before the University can accommodate the 
3000 students of a tomorrow now close upon us, many 
if not all, should be conveniently and appropriately 
related to the main avenues of the campus that is and 
the one that is to be. The alternative is the maze of 
pathwaj's at present affronting Order and even Sanity. 

How Urgent 

Anyone who thinks that the immediacy of these 
problems has been overstressed would give scant heed 
to the opinion that not another pick should be struck 
until they are dealt with to the utmost best of the Uni- 
versity 's ability. 

The University is now about to_ begin the erection 
of what will probably be its most imposing group of 
buildings. Mr. Kendall, of the McKim, Meade and 
White firm, has arranged them in the form of a Mal- 
tese Cross, the northern arm of which is closed by the 

South Building. Suppose this arrangement contains 
a site that is apju-oximately central in relation to our 
entire campus — back part and front part. In the 
writer's opinion, this arrangement of Mr. Kendall's 
does contain such a site. It is the one closing the 
southern arm of his cross. And its future centrality 
recommends it strongly as the site our Library calls 

Of course, any layman's conclusions on anything 
are liable to be matters of no consequence; but it 
would be a matter of considerable consequence if the 
most available sites for a library were occupied by 
other buildings. 

Mr. Kendall's cross will be a most important, as well 
as a most impressive, group of buildings. What are 
its avenues of communication with the woods that may 
be soon enough the larger half of our campus? The 
only official blue-print of a proposed avenue through 
this "back part" of the campus that the writer has 
seen might serve as a warning illustration of what 
could happen. In this blue-print the Raleigh Road is 
swung to the right straight through the campus from 
east to Avest until it joins the new National Highway 
that was the Pittsboro Road. Such a connection will 
naturally and inevitably be made. But the avenue on 
the blue-print seemed to the writer a trifle careless of 
possible eventualities. For instance, it allowed no 
room for the development of Emerson Field into a 
stadium, or bowl, or octagon. This proposal, it was 
stated, was a tentative one. But anybody who is 
sensitive about the "back part" of the campus is 
bound to hope that no highways or byways are swung 
around in that region until some satisfactory concep- 
tion of its future has been reached. 

What Can Be Done? 

Towards forming such a conception the University 
might begin the consideration of two things. First, 
the zoning of the complex of educational groups that, 
it seems, this institution promises to be, whether we 
want it to be that or not. It might then find that such 
a method of attacking the problem would reveal ad- 
vantages in planting certain of these groups at no 
distant date in the "back part" of the campus, leav- 
ing the undeveloped parts of our present campus for 
the expansion of certain other groups. If the Uni- 
versity deemed such a zoning premature, it might, at 
least, map out the main avenues connecting possible 
future building areas with the present ones so the 
next buildings to go up would not block direct and 
dignified access to those that, one may hope, will come 

Without some such effort being made, where is the 
certainty that there is no risk of the same old nuisance 
and offense all over again — waste of energy, efficiency, 
and money ; students and faculty taking twenty steps 
for one; students — not faculty — making paths where 
human nature corrects the art of man ; vandalism com- 
mitted on the landscape ; daily brutalization of all 
sense of order, dignity, and beauty ? 

John Manning Booker. 

President Howard Rondthaler, '93, of Salem Col- 
lege, was elected president of the North Carolina Col- 
lege Conference, held in Greensboro March 10 and 11. 
Professor N. W. Walker, of the School of Education, 
was elected secretary. 




"North Carolina is Champion of the South" was 
the streamer headline that blazed in triumph all the 
way across the sporting page of the Atlanta Journal 
the morning of March 2 in the year of the greatest 
basketball team that ever passed and tossed in a 
Southern toiu-nament. Practically a whole page in 
three Atlanta papers and columns more or less in 
every Southern daily acclaimed the niftiness, the cour- 
tesy, and the sportsmanship of the fighting five from 
the Old North State. Against the whole free field of 
entrants in the South-wide combination of Southern 
Conference and S. I. A. A. tournament, teams between 
the Ohio river and the Crulf, between the Atlantic 
and the Mississippi, North Carolina stood the hard, 
gruelling, relentless test of five fierce games of elimi- 
nation and came out as she went in and fought 
through, courteous, graceful, smiling, yet as terrific 
and clean as the lightning in swiftness and victory. 

Kentucky, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Georgia and 
Mercer, heralded in advance, stood out in the long ar- 
ray and were early scented as the mighty contenders 
who would eventually meet as the ruthless elimination 
chose out the potential champions for the final clash. 
In two hectic nights North Carolina made her dazzling 
ascent among the contenders with the scalps of How- 
ard and Newberry dangling gamely from her belt. 
The grace, ease, uncanniness of the Tar Heels became 
the inspiration of the sport writers and these uncon- 
scious lads passed their way into the headlines of the 
.sporting columns as they had already tossed them- 
selves into the hearts of the thousands who breath- 
lessly followed them over the court. "The best look- 
ing boys," said the Agnes Scott girls, and "the sec- 
ond choice of all Georgia," said the press. 

' ' But can they last ? ' ' That hard northern trip and 
the jump from West Point to Atlanta will tell in the 
end. Georgia, Mercer, Alabama, and Tech are yet in 
the way to take their toll in endurance. Mercer put 

the mighty Kentucky and Georgia Tech out of the 
running, while North Carolina eliminated the famed 
Georgia and Alabama quints. And now the climax. 
The mighty throng was gathered and the court was 
cleared of all conterriders for the supreme final decisive 
battle of the giants. All Mercer was there — students, 
faculty, townspeople and band. The Tech band an- 
swered their mighty roar. Far away in a little town 
on a wooded hill sixteen hundred boys sat up and 
waited and listened for the bell to ring as they had 
listened during four expectant and ringing nights. 

Down in Atlanta while Major Boye Avith rightful 
pride looked into Bill Fetzer's eyes that spoke back 
their hope to him, five boys came out on the tourna- 
ment floor to meet five others who had come with them 
all the way up the hard climb to this dizzy night. One 
Tar Heel — "Speed" Green, with a sprained leg — was 
not there : but another — Mahler — was. Another Tar 
Heel — Billy Carmichael — got up out of a fevered bed 
for the game that mastered him more than the fever 
could. By his side were his younger brother, Cart- 
wright, the idol of Atlanta, Morris McDonald, Perry, 
Mahler, Graham, and Purser, fighters, sportsmen all. 
Across the court there stood the superman Harmon 
and his unbeaten team, eager, clean, powerful, fighting 
men — doped to win. Hearts leaped and the whistle 
blew ! That night the bell rang in Chapel Hill. 

Acclaimed throughout the entire South as a won- 
derful team, Carolina's aggregation drew, along with 
hundreds of favorable comments from the press, the 
following letter from T. B. Higdon, prominent At- 
lanta alumnus and enthusiastic supporter of Carolina 
of the class of 1905 : 

Carolina Team Was Wonderful 

The second Annual Intercollegiate Basketball Tour- 
nament of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Asso- 
ciation and the Southern Intercollegiate Conference, 

Carolina Ii 

Team, Southebn Cuampions 



held here under the auspices of the Atlanta Athletic 
Club, came to a close last night. It ended with the 
best game of the tournament and between the two best 
teams of the tournament, and the score was, Univer- 
sity of North Carolina 40, Mercer University 26. 
There remains today no doubt in the minds of basket- 
ball "fans" in Atlanta as to the ranking team in the 
South, then the Atlanta Constitution referring to 
"North Carolina going back into their own stamping 
ground covered with trophies and glory and scalps of 
the vanquished and a reputation that time will not 

The Carolina team was a late entrant in the tourna- 
ment and was from the first considered by the experts 
as a dark horse. After it had disposed of Howard 
College, Newberry College (the champion of South 
Carolina) and the University of Georgia by comfort- 
able but not remarkable scores, opinion came to be di- 
vided into two camps, one arguing that Carolina was 
"playing under wraps" and holding herself in re- 
serve for the final contests, and the other contending 
that she was "putting out" everything she had and 
that, when she struck the University of Alabama, it 
would be back home for the Tar Heels. Therefore, 
at the Alabama game a considerable amount of money 
changed hands. It took the final game of the tourna- 
ment to discover the truth of the matter, and it showed 
the Carolina team, a well-oiled and smoothly running 
machine which put up the most dazzling exhibition of 
the technique of basketball by far that the toiTrnament 
had seen. The "playing in wraps" theory seems to 
have been justified. Mercer was outclassed just as any 
other contender in this tournament would have been. 
And Mercer is as clearly entitled to the second place 
as Carolina is to the first. When we consider that the 
final game was won with Green off the team (except 
for a few seconds), before a host of spectators con- 
sisting largely of Mercer students and backers, rein- 
forced with a ]\Iercer band, we have no difficulty in 
agreeing with 0. B. Keeler in the Atlanta Journal 
that : ' ' They had wings on their heels instead of tar, 
those Tar Heels from North Carolina, and with the 
finest display of basketball of the entire S. I. A. A. 
tournament they defeated the plucky Baptists from 
Mercer last night. 40 to 26, in a game that convinced 
the most thoroughly "Mercerized fan that the better 
team won the game and the best team in the tourna- 
ment won the championship." In fact, this was put- 
ting it mildl}^ 

I am sending each of the eight members of the 
squad copies of the Atlanta papers of today which give 
the write-ups of the game. The local alumni had plan- 
ned to give the boys and the coach a luncheon at the 
Capital City Club today, but they had to take the mid- 
night train last night for* the game in Raleigh tonight. 

I am saving this for the last : I have not only been 
with the team myself but I have heard it discussed by 
friends, strangers and opponents, even hotel clerks 
and bell boys, and I have never yet seen a visiting 
team so completely win the good-will of the spectators 
and the admiration of their opponents as these boys 
have done, and that not only by their uncanny science 
in the game but also because they have given us the 
most clean-cut exhibition of gentlemanly sportsman- 
ship in athletics that it has ever been my pleasure to 
see. They are the talk of the town and the comments 
upon them are such as to swell the chest of a Tar Heel 
to hear. — T. B. Higdon. 


Edward J. Hale, '60, soldier, journalist, and Jlin- 
ister to Costa Rica during the Wilson administration, 
died at his home in Fayetteville on February 15 in 
his 83rd year, having been born on December 25, 1839. 

Major E. J. Hale, Class of 1860. 

In the death of Major Hale, North Carolina has lost 
one of her sons whose services were of a significantly 
constructive order. As editor of the Fayetteville 
Observer he profoundly influenced the thinking of the 
Cape Fear section, and as a strong, forward-looking 
leader he was the central figure in proposing and 
bringing about the canalization of the Cape Fear river 
from Wilmington to Fayetteville and the development 
of inland waterways in the tidewater section of the 

In state and national politics Major Hale's part was 
significant. In 1884, the year of the first great Demo- 
cratic victorj^, he was the author of the tariff jilank in 
the North Carolina Democratic platform ; in 1896 he 
was chairman of the State Democratic platform com- 
mittee, and since 1894 he was frequently delegate-at- 
large to national Democratic conventions. 

As a representative of the national government in 
the diplomatic field. Major Hale first saw service in 
1885, at which time he was sent by President Cleve- 
land as consul to Manchester, England. In 1893 he 
was offered the mission to Turkey, which he declined. 
Later he was recommended by Secretary of State 
Gresham as Minister to Russia, but did not allow his 
name to be considered. In 1913 he was appointed 
Minister to Costa Rica by President Wilson and served 
until the existing government in Costa Rica was over- 

Major Hale's connection with the University was of 
the sort tliat Alma Mater highly cherishes. Into his 
long and useful life he carried the type of scholarship 
and culture which won for him in 1860 the valedic- 
torianship of his class and which led to his receiving 
from the University the LL.D. in 1910. Throughout 
his entire career he was a devoted, loyal son, and in 
his passing the University sustains a most profound 




Carolina 40, State 29, Wake Forest 11, Trinity 6, 
Elon 5, in the intercollegiate events ; Charlotte 32, 
Durham 10 in the Y meet ; Chapel Hill High winners 
in the interscholastic ; and the Durham ilaehine Gun 
Company, victor on an unchallenged track in the mili- 
tary events — these facts and figures tell the results of 
the State-wide indoor track meet held the night of 
March 10 in a big warehouse in Durham. But that 
is not the whole story. Into the story also entered 
three thousand people ; Governor Morrison, the State 
College Band, the flower and chivalry of Durham, the 
color, spirit and sportsmanship of young North Caro- 
lina in the presence of a three-ring circus of bewilder- 
ing, successive and simultaneous events spread out in 
kaleidoscopic panorama. 

Back of the success of the mammoth meet was the 
quiet power and unobtrusive spirit of Coach Robert 
Fetzer, the cooperation of Trinity College, Physi- 
cal Director ("lark of the Durham Y. M. C. A., the 
Durham Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club, Ro- 
tary Club. Merchants' Association, and public-minded 
spirit of the people of Durham. Starter Mulligan, 
who directed the events with efficient dispatch and who 
started several of the big meets in the East this year, 
said the Durham meet was the best handled of them 
all. The officials were on the job — Referee Foy Rob- 
ertson, and the scores of judges, time-keeper, clerks, 
and announcers. 

Captain Boyd Harden 's relay team almost lapped 
his competitors. In the half mile, Carolina made all 
four places. Yarborough outdistanced all in the 
freshman events. Wm. Yates, formerly of the Caro- 
lina track team, swept the track as the high score man 
of the whole meet for tlie Charlotte Y. The Ranson 
boy.s— "Ratty" the fourth, fifth and sixth, in the Ran- 
son family line — were first, second and third in Bob 
Fetzer 's indoor speed line. In one of the preliminary 
heats the youngest of the Ransons losing his right shoe 
on the first laj),' neither stopped nor turned aside, but 

"forgetting the things that were behind" pressed on 
to the goal of his own grit and the high calling of the 
spirit of the University which sent him forth. 

Roy Blackman, of the West Durham High School 
team, jumped his way into the hearts of 3,000 people 
on his one valiant leg. Even the honorary referee, 
Governor Cameron Morrison, won honors that were 
second to this undaunted boy.

Just how is the T^niversity expending the fund of 
$1,490,000 voted to it by the 1921 Legislature for 
buildings and other improvements? 

Plans have now reached the stage at which this 
question can be answered with a fair degree of accu- 
racy. It is definitely decided what buildings will ap- 
pear in the completed layout and in what other ways 
the plant will be improved and expanded. 

Dormitories Nearing Completion 

Four dormitories and three class-room buildings 
constitute the main part of the expansion program. 
The first dormitory is nearing completion and will be 
occupied by students in the summer school ; the others 
are expected to be complete by the opening of the fall 
term. October 15 is the day scheduled for the com- 
pletion of the first class-room building, that for the 
history and social science departments, December 15 
for the languages building, and February 15 of next 
year for the law building. This time schedule means 
that all the buildings will be finished one year, seven 
and a half months after the appropriation became 
available on -Tidy 1, 1921. 

The dormitories are to be four stories high and fire- 
proof throughout, with reinforced concrete floors and 
walls, concrete and terra cotta hollow tile floors, terra 
cotta hollow tile partitions, and slate roofs. Each will 
have sixty rooms and will accommodate 120 students. 
Thus the new dormitory quadrangle, on the site of 
what was recently the class athletic field, on the east 
side of the campus along the Raleigh road, will pro- 
vide living space for 480 students. 

The three class-room buildings, which have been so 
sorely needed in consequence of the great increase in 
attendance at the University in the last few years, will 
be of the same type of fireproof construction as the 

In voting money for the expansion of TTniversity 
facilities, the Legislature purposely refrained from 
laj'ing down a rigid law as to how the total fund 
should be divided among the various necessary addi- 
tions and improvements. It made a budget, separat- 
ing the several items, but it provided that the Trustees, 
with the approval of the Governor, might take from 
one allotment and add to another, within the total 

Besides the large buildings on the campus, the prin- 
cipal additions and improvements are a railway ex- 
tension into the campus, to cut down the cost of get- 
ting materials on the ground ; a jiower iilant addition 
costing about .'fil00,000, a woman's building, installa- 
tions for fire protection, the grading of .streets and a 
campus extension, new water mains and steam lines 
and sewers, furniture for the new buildings, and de- 
partmental equipment. Part of the $500,000 that the 
Legislature put on its budget to be apportioned by the 
Trustees' committee has been devoted to these pur- 
poses, while another part has been added to the allot- 
ments for dormitories and class-rooms. 

Memorial Hall Made Usable 

By the exiienditure of $15,000 to improve the acous- 
tics of Memorial Hall and to install in it heating and 
lighting, the committee has provided a serviceable 

space for large gatherings. This meets an urgent need 
of the University. For many years Memorial Hall 
was regarded as hopeless as a place to hear in, and it 
was thought that a modern auditorium would have to 
be built. This Avould have cost at least $200,000. 

Under the plan adopted by the Trustees' committee, 
the construction is not done by the letting of lump-sum 
contracts. The University has its own engineering 
and architectural force, and the contractor does his 
work for specified fees. These fees are calculated with 
the cost of the work as a basis, but it is not the ' ' cost 
plus" system that proved so costly to tiie Government 
in war-time. That s.ystem encouraged high costs, but 
the terms of the University's contract, by stipulating 
that the money spent above a certain figure comes out 
of the contractor's profit, gives an incentive toward 

The overhead expense — surveys, the preparation of 
plans, inspection and general supervision — comes out 
of the general fund. The I University authorities say 
that when the final report upon builcling operations is 
made to the next Legislature this item for overhead 
will be shown to be smaller than the overhead usually 
is in other undertakings of the same extent. It prom- 
ises to be about 4.7 per cent of the appropriation. 

Future Program Outlined 

At its 1921 session the Legislature was asked to pro- 
vide for $20,000,000 as an improvement and expansion 
fund for the institutions of the State. This was to be 
expended over several years. The University's part 
of this fund was to be $6,000,000 to carry out a six- 
year program. Instead of providing all at once for 
six years, however, the Legislature made its appro- 
priation of $1,490,000 for a two-year program, and the 
TTniversity was to come back when this was spent and 
state its needs then. 

A passage from President Chase's recent report to 
the Trustees tells of the present situation with regard 
to buildings and the advantages of continuous opera- 
tions : 

It has been denionstr.atefl that large scale building opera- 
tions can be carried out effectively and economically at the 
University, the fundamental necessities being two: first, an 
overhead organization and a type of contract of the proper 
sort ; and, second, an available fund sufficiently large to in- 
sure that an efficient organization can be maintained for a sum 
which constitutes a low percentage of the total cost. Under 
such conditions any given structure can be erected both more 
eeonomicall}- and more quickly than under the plan of re- 
garding tlie unit of organization as tlie single building rather 
than the entire project. 

Overhead costs can thus be cut down, as our experience 
has shown, and tlic labor problem greatly simplified by the 
erection of camps and by the maintenance of a relatively 
uniform force throughout, which can be transferred from 
building to building, as nee^ls require. The completion of 
the spur track, which is now delivering supplies direct to 
the campus, will in itself effect a large saving. 

It will, I am convinced, aside from all other considerations, 
be the best business policy for the State to make during this 
period of rajiid growth sufiiciently large appropriations from 
bicnnium to biennium to allow the sort of building policy now 
in operation to be continued ; it assures steady, rapid, and 
economical construction. This building policy is now past its 
experimental stage, and has amply justified itself in the minds 
of your committee by its results. 

One compelling reason for beginning the Graham 
Memorial building within theffext year is the economy 



that will be achieved by the maintenance of the pres- 
ent organization intact. It is practically certain that 
the construction of more new buildings will begin in 
the spring or summer of next year, after the 1923 
Legislature has met, and loss in both money and time 
is inevitable if the supervising organization and the 
labor forces have to be disbanded and then reassem- 
bled. — Louis Graves, '02. 


Julian 8. Carr, Jr., permanent president of the class 
of 1899, and oldest son of (4eneral Julian S. Carr, died 
of heart failure Friday, ;\Iarch 17, in the Pennsyl- 
vania Hotel in New York. Only a few days before 
his father had been dangerously ill in Durham, and 
just as General Carr was reported to be on the way 
to recovery, alumni and friends were shocked by the 
news of "young Jule's" death. 

Alumni who have kept in close touch with Uni- 
versity affairs do not have to be told how Mr. Carr, 
like his father, has kept up an active connection with 
his Alma Mater. Besides giving financial aid to many 
of its undertakings, he displayed a continuous per- 
sonal interest in her undertakings. 

What Mr. Carr had accomplished in the indttstrial 
world, especially in his relationship with his em- 
ployees, has been wideh' commented on, and, in the 
words of the Green&boro News, his loss to the State, 
industrially, is likened to that of the late President 
Graham. Both were trail makers in the new South. 

So distinctive was his point of view as a captain of 
industry of the new order that The Review prints 
below a sketch of him as a distinguished alumnus, pre- 
pared for it by Mr. C'arr's fellow-townsman, W. D. 
Carmichael, Jr.. and awaiting publication at the time 
of his death. Entitled "A Trail Blazer in Industry," 
the sketch follows : 

Twenty-two years ago Julian S. Carr, Jr. gradu- 
ated from the University of North Carolina and as- 
sumed the management of a little mortgaged knitting 
mill in Durham. 

Today, chiefly under his guidance, this same strug- 
gling, unstable little business has grown into a corpo- 
ration owning fifteen handsome mills throughout the 
State and having assets of over seven million dollars. 

The story of Mr. Carr's rise from an inexperienced 
college boy to president of a gigantic industrial con- 
cern, colored by all the necessary difficulties and try- 
ing situations, sounds like a moving picture scenario. 
He has been confronted by the worst sort of financial 
problems, but through judicious use of credit and his 
infinite solicitude that this credit never be impaired, 
he has managed to weather the storm of several threat- 
ening crises. 

In his ofifiee and in his home he is always the same. 
When you talk with him you feel an atmosjjhere of 
vigor and business right-forwardness and it endures 
long after you leave him. He is not a "religionist" 
in the goody-good sense of the term, but he ha.s defin- 
ite Christian principles and he applies these princi- 
ples in the daily conduct of his business. 

It is along the lines of the "human" problem in 
industry that ^Mr. Carr has made his greatest contri- 
bution. He was a pioneer among the business admin- 
istrators of the country in working toward the estab- 
lishment of a broader basis of understanding between 

the employer and the employed. He realized that cap- 
italists and laborers are cut from the same bolt of 
cloth. He put the "hum" in human and blazed a 
trail of new thought on the subject of the rights of tl»e 

While capitalists everywhere were frantically fight- 
ing labor's stcjis toward economic independence, ^Ir. 
Carr scaled the barrier between emjiloyer and em- 
ployee, showed his workers that "a house divided 
against itself cannot stand," and led them into the 
peaceful establishment of a definite and profitable 
plan of organization. 

In his experiment he ventured far from the shore 
of conservatism at a time when the sea of radical 
"isms" raged its roughest. Through the darkness of 
misunderstanding between managements and workers, 
Mr. Carr thought he saw the light and headed straight 
for it. With his employees he formed a "cooperative 
partnership." They were to work with him and not 
for him. 

The mills were organized into miniature states, 
modelled after the Federal system, with a represen- 
tative government that had both legislative and execu- 
tive phases. In the planning and installation of this 
new system, Mr. Carr was very fortunate in having 
the cooperation of his brothers and first cousin, whose 
untiring efforts have contributed appreciably to the 
success of the mills. 

At the inauguration of Mr. Carr's industrial de- 
mocracy the more conservative industrial folk shook 
their heads ; while others criticized the plan and made 
various calculations as to the real motives underlying 
its concept and adoption — but Mr. Carr steamed full 
speed ahead on the true course of his convictions. 

It is true that he hasn't attained the millenium in 
the "capitalist and Tabor" jjroblem. His sailing has 
been anything but smooth and he is yet far from the 
discover}' of any over-night panacea for all labor 
troubles. In his democratic man-to-man basis for em- 
ployer and employee, however, he has cleared the 
ground for the establishment of a sound and happy 
relation between the two forces. 

After all, the essential thing isn't so much the rate 
of progress a man's making as the s:oal for which he 
is striving, and Mr. Carr is unquestionably headed in 
the right direction.

At a meeting of the Joint Commission of the North 
Carolina and Western North Carolina Methodist con- 
ferences and the Chapel Hill Methodist Church held 
on February 15, the program for projecting the new 
Methodist Church for the students of the University 
and the local church was definitely decided upon and 
appropriate committees were appointed to carry the 
program to completion. 

It is the purpose of the commission to spend from 
$150,000 to $200,000 on the new church. A two-unit 
type of building will probably be built. One of the 
buildings will be an auditorium sufficiently large to 
take care of the regular congregational gatherings. 
The second will be used especially for social purposes 
and for the conduct of Sunday School and I3ible 
classes and the holding of group meetings of students 
or other organizations. The buildings will be con- 
nected and are intended to meet the religious and so- 
cial needs of the student body having Methodist affili- 
ations of whom there are at present 537 or one-third 
of the students on the campus. 

The buildings will be placed on the present church 
lot which has recently been considerably enlarged by 
an exchange of properties with the University and the 
purchase of the A. S. Barbee office. 

Later in the year a campaign for a part of the funds 
will be put on, to which Methodist alumni of the Uni- 
versity and Methodists in general will be asked to con- 
tribute. The program has been heartily and substan- 
tially backed financially by both the conferences of the 
State, and it is expected that the actual building oper- 
ations will be begun early in 192.3. 

The committee on plans for the building is com- 
posed of Rev. M. T. Pyler, Durham ; Rev. Euclid Mc- 
Whorter, Aberdeen, and Rev. Walter Patten, N. W. 
Walker and L. R. Wilson, of Chapel Hill. Officers of 
the commission and other members present at the 
meeting were Rev. M. T. Plyler, Durham, chairman ; 
Rev. J. H. Barnliardt, Greensboro, vice chairman; 
Rev. R. M. Courtney, Thomasville, secretary; Dr. E. 
W. Knight, Chapel Hill, treasurer; Dr. E. K. McLarty, 
Asheville ; Rev. Euclid McWhorter, Aberdeen ; Mr. J. 
F. Shinn, Norwood ; Rev. C. T. Rodgers, Snow Hill ;

The new $9,000 class athletic field, which is included 
m the Atwood building program, and which is situated 
east of Emerson Field near the old cemetery, has re- 
cently been completed and before the spring is over 
it will be brought into regular use. 

Work was begun on the field in the fall shortly after 
the old field was taken over for the site of the four new 
dormitories. Trees were cut down, and throughout 
the winter a force has been carrying on the blasting 
and grading necessary to fit it for spring practice.

Alumni reunions will hold the center of the stage 
as never before at the approaching commencement on 
June 11-14. Ten classes ranging from 1862 to 1921 
will hold reunions and in addition the former stu- 
dents of pharmacy will meet on the Hill again to cele- 
brate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the opening of 
the School of Pharmacy, and the former women stu- 
dents will hold a reunion in celebration of the twenty- 
fifth anniversary of the admission of women to the 
University. The classes holding reunions are 1862, 
1872, 1882, 1892, 1897, 1902, 1907, 1912, 1917 and 

Class of 1902 

Louis Graves, of Chapel Hill, recently elected by 
mail secretary of the class of 1902, writes his class- 
mates as follows regarding the twenty -year reunion of 
this class: 

The day for the 20-year reunion of the class of 1902 
is near at hand. That day is June 13. 

Come one, come all! Let's have the biggest class 
reunion the University ever saw! 

In 1912 our class set a record for attendance at re- 
unions. We must do still better this year. 

Besides glad greetings and the swapping of stories, 
there will be a plentiful feast. 

And listen to this : You 've got to forget your dig- 
nity, limber up your joints, and be ready to perform 
on the athletic field. Contests in baseball, tennis, run- 
ning, jumping, are being arranged with other classes 
returning this year— 1897, 1907, 1912. What can you 
do? Speak up. Don't be modest — or lazy. Train 
down that stomach and be ready ! 

Remember, these reunions come only once every five 
years and you must be sure and be on hand. Begin 
making your arrangements now. Don't fail us. 

Class of 1907 

T. Holt Haywood, of 65 Leonard Street, New York, 
president of the class of 1907, writes to his classmates 
as follows concerning the fifteen-year reunion of this 
class : 

The main distinguishing characteristic of the class 
of 1907, during its four years' sojourn on the beauti- 
ful and beloved campus of the University of North 

Carolina, was the spirit of cooperation that its mem- 
bers always showed one to another. Regardless of 
what organization any of the members belonged to or 
did not belong to, the main thought among the mem- 
bers of this class was that they were classmates, and, 
as such, were true and loyal friends. 

It has been fifteen years since the final chapter in 
the history of the class of 1907 on the campus was 
written. At the time of our ten-year reunion, the 
members of the class were spread far and wide, quite 
a number being in the military or naval service of the 
United States, and while our reunion was a great suc- 
cess, still there were many old friends that we longed 
to see who could not be with us, on account of other 
duties that came even ahead of their class reunion. 
The war has now been won and the class of 1907 did 
its part in winning it. 

I am issuing this notice that there will be a fifteen- 
year reunion of our class at this j'ear 's commencement. 
I have already been in personal touch with some of 
the members and all whom I have talked with are en- 
thusiastic over getting back to Chapel Hill once more 
and seeing many old friends, some of whom we have 
not seen in fifteen years. The commencement dates 
this year are June 11-14, and Tuesday, June 13, is 
Alumni Daj'. Please write these dates in your diary 
so that you will not forget them. I will ask all the 
members of the class of 1907 who see this to remind 
any other members of our class whom they may see of 
these dates, so that we can all work together and make 
this fifteen-year reunion the largest attended and most 
successful of any that has ever been held at our be- 
loved Alma Mater. 

Class of 1917 

One of the most impressive sights seen at the Uni- 
versity in many years was the class of 1917, at the 
declaration of war in the spring of its senior year, 
throwing down text-books and rushing away to mili- 
tary camps. This class comes back to its five-year re- 
union at commencement and the reunion should be a 
memorable occasion. II. 6. Baity, secretary, of Chapel 
Hill, writes to the members of his class as follows : 

This year at commencement our class of 1917 holds 
its five-year reunion. Just five years ago the declara- 
tion of war threw confusion into our ranks, and be- 
fore commencement day arrived more than half of 
the class had hurried off to the training camps. The 
spring of 1918 saw the class still more disrupted ; we 
were in the midst of war; many of the '17 boys were 
already on the front in France, and doubtless few even 
took time to remember that it was our first anniver- 

In view of these peculiar circumstances which 
caused our untimely separation and prevented many 
from attending our own graduation exercises, it be- 
hooves us to come back this year as an organized class 
to "re-graduate," to renew our old friendship, revive 
the old spirit which marked that memorable farewell 
smoker, pay tribute to those of our classmates who 
made the supreme sacrifice, and kindle that spark of 
loyalty to the University which always burns in the 
heart of every Carolina man. 

In the five years that we have been away the old 
University has grown rapidly and healthily, both in a 
physical way and in its service to the State. Let us 
come back and observe at close range just what it is 
doing. I can think of no more urgent call, either of 



chity or pleasure, that could come to any of us than 
this invitation of our Alma Mater to visit the old Hill 
again. For every man of '17 within the limits of the 
United States this is both an obligation and an oppor- 
tunity; and we shall expect you here. 

Further details will be set forth in a letter to be 
mailed later. The commencement dates are June 11- 
14. and Tuesday. June 13, is Alumni Day. If you 
have any suggestions as to the reunion, send them to 
Sam Ervin, ilorganton, N. C. And if you have any 
alumni notes or changes of address, please mail them 
to me at once. 

Class of 1921 

W. H. Bobbitt, of Charlotte, president of the class 
of 1921, writes his classmates of the baby reunion 
class as follows : 

Busy foUv-s always have to plan ahead so that they 
may take advantage of occasions which otherwise they 
would have to miss. 

So plan now, and keep your plan always in mind, 
that on Tuesday. June 13, when the class of 1921 holds, 
its reunion at Chapel Hill, you must be there. 

Remember that five years will pass before we meet 
in our second reunion, and we must have one good 
round of fun and fellowship before that span of years 


The University Library has just received from Dr. 
Joseph Hyde Pratt, State Geologist and former mem- 
ber of the State Highway Commission, an unusual 
collection of books and pamphlets illustrating the his- 
tory of the Good Roads Movement in the United 

This movement, which began in tlie early '90 's with 
the advent of the bicycle, was well under way before 
the automobile gave it added momentum. The 200 
volumes in Dr. Pratt's collection include the early re- 
jiorts of the Highway Commissions of those states that 

did pioneer work for good roads — New Jersey. Massa- 
chusetts, Rhode Island. Connecticut and New York. 

In addition, the Library receives the early Proceed- 
ings of the ^Vmerican Road Builders' Association and 
five volumes containing a complete set of the publica- 
tions of the National Highway Association. Among 
the periodical material is the file of the first six vol- 
umes of Good Roads, a magazine that began publica- 
tion in 1892, and the first two years of the Journal of 
the Massachusetts Highway Commission. 

The collection of pamphlets and clippings of the 
good roads movement is every extensive, occupying 
thirty feet of shelf space. All the items in it have 
been carefully classified. Of special interest to North 
Carolinians are the sixteen boxes of clippings relating 
to good roads activities in the various counties of this 

This gift from Dr. Pratt will be placed in the brancli 
library in Phillips Hall for the use of the School of 
Applied Science.
