Number 8 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



A Big Job Is Being Put Across 

"A tremendously big job is being put across." 
These were the concluding words of an editorial ap- 
pearing in the last issue of The Review. They re- 
ferred then to the building program now splendidly 
under way. They furnish now the point of departure 
for editorial comment in this issue. 

DDD 

Complete Alumni Support Is Needed 

What we have in mind, however, is not to speak of 
the splendid' work of the building committee, but 
rather to raise the question as to the part alumni can 
and should play just now in the total University pro- 
gram which should involve trustees, faculty, students, 
and alumni. From time" to time we have maintained 
that this fourth group, this alumni body of from ten 
to twelve thousand men, has a distinctive part to play 
in any program to which Alma Mater commits her- 
self, and that it should be playing it to the limit. 

In order that the alumni may view this subject from 
an angle somewhat different from that usually pre- 
sented by The Review, we are carrying elsewhere in 
this issue a study by Dean Bradshaw of the contribu- 
tion the alumni of Yale University have made not to 
the loyalty and maintenance funds of the institution, 
but particularly to the more fundamental matter of 
educational policy. 

While conditions at -Yale have necessarily been dif- 
ferent from those at Carolina, and while the problems 
on this campus requiring solution are quite unlike 
those in New Haven, still there is the opportunity for 
a far more thoughtful consideration of them on the 
part of Carolina alumni than they have ever received. 

In view of this fact, we for once shift the emphasis 
from memorial funds, loyalty funds, fellowships, do- 
nations to various University purposes, the enrichment 
of campus life, etc., and urge the alumni to read this 
article by Dean Bradshaw, together with those by Dr. 
Booker, on the physical expansion of the University ; 
and the special articles on the twenty-fifth anniver- 
saries of the School of Pharmacy and the Women's 
Association, the Graham Memorial Building, and the 
Methodist and Episcopal church developments. 

Every hour it becomes more and more apparent thai 
the University of North Carolina is becoming a great 
university. That fact is inescapable. Consequently, 
in view of it, whether the alumni agree with the sug- 
gestions contained in these articles or not. it becomes 
absolutely essential that they, as the fourth great part 
of the complete University organization, pull them- 
selves together, find out what their particular tasks 
are in the making of the great institution, and then 
put all the steam they command into their perform- 
ance. 

Here, gentlemen of the Alumni Association, is a 
program that is worthy of you. Tt is a thundering 
big job. And it calls for all you have to put it across! 



Vote First, Then Get to Work 

One word more on this point. Elsewhere are listed 
the names from which the officers for 1922-23 of the 
General Alumni Association are to be chosen. A 
complete directory of present alumni officers and com- 
mittees is also printed in this issue. Look all the 
names over carefully. Vote (when you receive your 
ballots from the secretary) for the men who will put 
the work of the Association across, and get behind the 
committees to whom specific duties have been assigned. 

And if there are other jobs which alumni should be 
doing, come to commencement and tell the Associa- 
tion about them, and then everlastingly see to it that 
they are done. Or, better still, do them yourself ! 

□ □ □ 
The Question of Consolidation Raised 

From time to time during the past fifteen years, the 
question of the consolidation of the University, the 
A. and E., and the North Carolina College for Women 
has been raised in the State and then allowed to pass 
out of mind. 

Recently, the question has again been brought up 
for consideration, this time by Governor Morrison, 
with the accompanying announcement that a commis- 
sion of nine members, consisting of three representa- 
tives from the governing boards of each of the institu- 
tions, would be appointed to consider the subject and 
report. 

To date, the commission has not been named, and, 
to judge from the comparative silence of the press, 
little interest has been manifested in the question 
throughout the State. The Review has not given the 
matter very serious thought, but its first impression is 
that the chief concern of North Carolina institutions 
of higher education today is to keep the attention of 
the State focussed on the necessity of making them 
adequate to meet the demands made upon them, rather 
than become involved in a discussion of consolidation 
or the possible elimination of a certain amount of sup- 
posed, rather than actual, duplication of educational 
effort. While it is possible to see where certain good 
results might grow out of consolidation, it is also pos- 
sible to discern inherent evils that would more than 
neutralize the good. 

□ □ □ 
High School Week 

On Friday night. April 7, when the Durham high 
school won over Burlington in the final contest of the 
High School Debating Union, the University rounded 
out a decade of highly significant service to North 
• Carolina high schools. 

There are those here and there who hold that high 
school boys and girls cannot debate. Others, like the 
late Roosevelt, hold that one should not advocate a 
proposition in which one does not believe. But 
through these contests, which, in the ten years, have 



218 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



involved ten thousand boys and girls and have been 
heard by an audience aggregating at least 500,000 
North Carolinians, thousands of the youth of the State 
have been furnished an incentive for completing the 
high school course and today the rising flood of high 
school graduates which are seeking admittance into 
North Carolina colleges are doing so largely by reason 
of them. 

Some of the speeches may be little more than decla- 
mations. Some of the athletic events which have 
paralleled the debating contests may be accompanied 
by certain evils; but the net result is a larger and a 
finer body of high school graduates than the State 
would otherwise possess, a fact in which the men who 
have worked these ten years to bring this result about 
have their high reward. 

□ □ □ 
Zoning the Campus 

In April, The Review published an article by Dr. 
J. M. Booker, of the faculty, concerning the "back 
part" of the University campus. In the present is- 
sue, he continues the studies which he has been mak- 
ing, elaborating the idea of zoning the campus as sug- 
gested in his previous communication. Knowing the 
interest of the alumni in the discussion of all plans 
affecting the campus, The Review draws attention to 
the map and explanations which appear on another 
page, and to the letter from Dr. Booker which follows 
after the next paragraph. 

The Review believes the alumni will be greatly 
interested in the map and explanations, whether they 
agree or not with the suggestions made by Dr. Booker. 
For the map has distinctive news value in that it 
shows all of the present campus and the areas sur- 
rounding it. It helps "put across" the idea of the 
real magnitude of the change which the University is 
undergoing physically, and of the corresponding mag- 
nitude of the responsibility of all members of the Uni- 
versity to see that the best plan possible, whether this 
one or another, be followed in projecting the Greater 
University. 

The measure of the University's present building effort, of 
course, is not only the number of buildings it constructs, but 
also the extent of its prevision. To keep out of the way of 
the future is as essential as to put a roof over the present. 

With that in mind, I contributed to The Eeview for April 
a plea for the consideration of the campus as a whole, including 
the "back part"; for a location of the library in the center of 
the campus ; and for the recognition of the groups of interest 
in a growing University ("zoning"). The map appearing on 
another page is drawn primarily to illustrate those three points ; 
the extent of the "back part" of the campus in terms of 
accessible building sites; the new center of a campus that 
ultimately included these sites; and the possibility of finally 
assembling the various departments in their natural neighbor- 
hoods, or "zones. " I have no expectation of offering final 
solutions to these problems; the building sites and paths were 
put down merely to show that there are a goodly number of 
sites in the "back part" of the campus, that they are more 
or less accessible, and that they could be incorporated in a 
' ' zone ' ' plan of a larger campus. 

Incidentally the map is designed to show recent develop- 
ments of general interest: 

1. The extension to the west of the Episcopal and the Meth- 
odist church holdings on the campus side of Franklin street, 
and the fringe of stores, movies, and residences along the 
campus sides of Franklin street and Columbia avenue. 

2. The new group of teaching buildings planned by Mr. Ken- 
dall, of the firm of McKim, Meade, and White. 

3. Mr. Kendall 's dormitories now building, and their rela- 
tion to the Medical School Building us lie plana to extend it, 
and to a duplicate group of dormitories on the east side of the 



Raleigh Eoad (according to a verbal description of Mr. Ken- 
dall's). 

4. His arrangement of the proposed women 's dormitories in 
the angle formed by Battle street and by the new street, which 
might not inappropriately be called Graham street (according 
to a sketch of Mr. Kendall's). 

5. The new National Highway. 

6. The new class-athletic field. 

In closing, I desire to make certain acknowledgments. My 
ideas of effecting order in quads or rectangles by extending 
buildings already in existence came from the stimulating plan 
for the University made by Mr. Upjohn several years ago. I 
have used the contour map of Blair and Drane, which accom- 
panied the latter 's prophetic report of 1920. I regret that I 
did not see Mr. Drane 's map of his conception of the future 
University in time to profit by it, and that I was unable to ob- 
tain a copy of the Aberthaw Report. — J. M. Booker.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW

YALE ALUMNI INFLUENCE YALE POLICIES 



That aluinni should furnish financial and moral 
support to their Alma Mater is taken for granted. 
That alumni should have a voice in determining the 
policies of the institution which they are to support is 
a less familiar but equally sound truth. That the 
weight of alumni counsel is exactly equal to the in- 
tensity of their interest, the amount of their knowl- 
edge, and the clarity of their thinking is still less fa- 
miliar but certainly demonstrable. In fact, all three 
of these propositions are so true and so related that 
they might be stated as an equation. Alumni interest 
plus support equals influence. Interest can be fac- 
tored into loyalty and intelligent study. 

In spite of the truth of this equation, it has not 
been used very generally — I refer to the country as a 
whole, rather than to our particular history. Alumni 
interest and support have been most conspicuous in 
athletics, supporting coaches, securing players, organ- 
izing summer jobs for teams of players, betting on the 
team, etc. On the other side of the story the college 
administrations have in the main limited their taking 
counsel with alumni to those occasions when the sub- 
ject under discussion was finances. Now, I do not 
mean to indicate that these matters ought to be left 
undone. I do contend that they are only a beginning. 
It lies in the nature of things that alumni as indi- 
viduals and as a body have a peculiar viewpoint. It 
would seem self-evident that this viewpoint harnessed 
to genuine study would cease to be merely peculiar 
and become peculiarly valuable. 

However, this is more than an abstract truth ; it is 
a concrete reality. The thing has actually been done, 
and its results are good. I refer to the part that Yale 
alumni have had in a recent reorganization, a move- 
ment beginning with the appointment of faculty and 
alumni committees in 1917 and finding its climax in 
measures so radical as to merit the motto : 

' ' Yale does not rest on laurels of the past, 
But ever seeks for greater power 
To mould more men of greater public usefulness." 

Basis of Reorganization 

The reorganization was based on some reasons that 
are not applicable to other institutions. However, we 
find among the list the following : 

a. The new spirit in the nation and in the university which 
requires of every institution and agency that it take account 
of stock, consider the lessons taught by the war, and seek to 
improve its methods to meet the new conditions. 

b. The special conditions in the educational world which call 
for radical reform, and especially the decrease in the purchas- 
ing power of the salaries of teachers at the very time when the 
importance of the profession is being emphasized as never 
before. 

e. The changes brought about by the war, especially through 
the virtual control of the University by the Army for the 
purposes of the 8. A. T. C, which have resulted iii breaking 

down many barriers, which make reorganization now easier 
than at any other time in recent years. 

d. The Sterling bequest, with its unique opportunity of uni- 
versity expansion, and the consequent obligation which it lays 
upon the Corporation to consider the future policy of the 
University as a whole. 

e. The particular reasons growing out of the history of 
Yale which make a closer correlation between the different 
schools at once necessary and difficult. 

f. The fact that the Corporation has already dealt with 
reorganization matters in a partial and preliminary way. 



g. The keen interest of our alumni in the future usefulness 
of Yale, which has received its most signal evidence in the 
report of the Alumni Committee on University Plan 

With the exception of d., e., and g., the statements 
can apply with equal force to the University of North 
Carolina; and d. and g. should not be exceptions. 

The report does not stop with g., but goes on to say : 

We desire particularly here to record our sense of obligation 
to the Alumni Committee for its thoroughgoing and intelligent 
work. We have found ourselves greatly assisted by its report, 
as well as by personal conferences with members of the Com- 
mittee. We are glad to find ourselves in agreement with the 
major part of its conclusions. We have placed on file in the 
records of the Corporation, and have submitted to the Alumni 
Committee, a memorandum explaining the reasons for differing 
from its recommendations in certain particulars. 

The committee referred to is the Alumni Committee 
on Plan for University Development appointed by the 
Corporation on February 19, 1917. This committee 
consisted of fourteen busy business men, only one of 
whom lived in New Haven ; in fact one as far as Chi- 
cago and another in Cincinnati. This committee of 
scattered men worked and studied until it was able in 
February, 1919, to submit a report that elicited the 
comment above. It went further than comment. It 
became an integral and fundamental part of a reor- 
ganization so radical that it has attracted almost uni- 
versal attention. 

Scope of Reorganization 

The scope of the reorganization in which faculty 
and alumni so vigorously cooperated can be seen from 
the following list of the matters on which recommen- 
dations were made and adopted :

The "Yale Plan" 

Probably one of the most startling and effective 
measures in that long list, and one, too, in which the 
alumni had a large part is a plan which grew out of 
26, Common Undergraduate Freshman Year, and 38, 
University Teaching. After one year of trial it has 
attracted so much attention and is so unique that it 
has become known as the ' ' Yale Plan. ' ' 

The essential features of the plan grow out of a 
recognition of the fact that the freshman year is a 
crucial year and that the intellectual impetus that the 
student gets that year" carries him to appreciation of 
education and success in it or to the scrap heap. The 
Yale Plan concentrates the best teachers obtainable on 
that year, organizes them into a freshman faculty with 
a conscious purpose and plan of work, limits the fresh- 
man class-room to a maximum of twenty-five men, pro- 
vides for out-of-class contact between teacher and 
student by adding to the teacher's salary a sum for 
entertainment of his students, and heads up the whole 
system with a Dean of Freshmen who has no job but 
to teach one class, to advise the freshmen, and to make 
the whole thing go. This plan does not stop with 
sounding good. It has made good. At mid-year 
exams this year the men who failed on all courses or 
passed only one course total exactly 1.6% of the class. 
I wonder how many large colleges with a freshman 
class of about eleven hundred can show a mid-year 
casualty list of only seventeen? 

Plan Is Adaptable 

This fine record can be made possible anywhere that 
the plan which produces it is put into effect. It means 
pulling some of the highest paid teachers out of the 
upper years into the freshman class. It means an 
enormous increase in the teaching staff. It means an 
increase in administrative officers. All of this means 
money, and if the work of the University is not to be 
starved at some other point, it means an additional in- 
come. No institution can reach the full measure of its 
greatness if it does not do in supreme fashion three 
jobs : extension, research and teaching. If one of 
these activities is out-stripping the other, the cry 
should be not retrenchment for one, but progress for 
the other. 

What About, Alumni? 

Well, be that as it may, it stands out as clear as the 
sunlight that a great university, faced by the prob- 
lems of expansion, met them through the joint action 
of its faculty and alumni. We are faced by the same 
situation. If our teaching power is not to be crip- 
pled in the fight we must act. Are there fourteen men 
scattered from New York to Atlanta that will serve 
on a committee to dig into the heart of this problem 
with the faculty committee on educational policy, and 



that will do the job so well that other alumni will 
join them in underwriting a plan that shall make the 
freshman class safe for this generation? The Uni- 
versity of North Carolina cannot "rest on laurels of 
the past." We must maintain place in extension, re- 
search, and teaching ; and the greatest of these . 

Francis Bradshaw, '16. 



TO MEMBERS OF '82 

Chas. W. Worth, of Wilmington, president of the 
class of 1882, sends the following letter to members 
of '82, calling on them to return for the fortieth year 
reunion at commencement : 

After a forty year long vacation two months gives 
ample time for you to prepare for a return to the 
Hill. 

The faculty of the University has asked for a re- 
union of the class of 1882, and a number of the mem- 
bers of the class join them in the request. 

This "get together" should have occurred long 
ago, as it is now too late for some, — hut not for you ! 

As president of the class the pleasant duty falls to 
me to issue this invitation and call upon you to come 
to commencement this year, and to the call I would 
add my personal urge that we "re-une and remi- 
nisce." 

All of us, I am sure, wish to meet and greet each 
other at least once again, and especially amid the old 
scenes and surroundings, so cherished in memory. 

It will require the best kind of an excuse for you 
to stay away, and yet feel loyal to class and Alma 
Mater. 

Write me at once that you will be there and room- 
ing arrangements will be made in one of the dormi- 
tories for us all to be together. 



THE REUNION OF 1921 

C. W. Phillips, of Greensboro, secretary of the 
class of 1921, writes his classmates as follows concern- 
ing the first year reunion of this class to be held at 
commencement : 

The time is approaching when we are to gather 
back at the Hill. Twelve long months will have 
passed since we, as Seniors, sat under the old Poplar 
and smoked the pipe of peace. Twelve long months 
of experiences we will have to relate to each 
other. For the first time we will be going back to 
look over again the familiar haunts of our college 
days. Once more we will breathe the fresh air of 
Chapel Hill and see the green grass of the campus. 
Let's all be there to celebrate our first birthday. We 
will be the center of attraction. They are expecting 
great things from vis. Let's not disappoint them. 

Plans are being made at present to have one of 
the best programs in the University's history for an 
alumni reunion. To make it a complete success, all 
of us will have to be there. Let's begin to make our 
plans now to be right there when the time comes for 
us to act this commencement. Don't we long for the 
time when we can lay aside our worries for a couple 
of days and be our real old college selves again ? I am 
hoping the year has been successful for you all, and 
I am also hoping that we will all see each other in 
June and hear the "split Carolinas" filling the air.

Ten Years History 

Since the High School Debating Union was inaugu- 
rated by the Di and Phi Societies ten years ago at the 
suggestion of C. E. Mcintosh, of the class of 1911, 
ten State-wide contests have been held, which have 
been in the nature of popular referendums. In the 
decade of these contests upwards of 10,000 boys and 
girls, chosen in preliminaries, have debated on im- 
portant public questions before an aggregate audience 
of over 500,000 people. 

During the ten years the following high schools and 
debaters have won the Aycock Cup: 1913, Pleasant 
Garden, represented by Grady Bowman and S. C. 
Hodgin; 1914, Winston-Salem, represented by Charles 
Roddick and Clifton Eaton ; 1915, Wilson, represented 
by Misses Lalla Rookh Fleming and Ethel Gardner; 
1916, Graham, represented by Miss Myrtle Cooper and 
Boyd Harden ; 1917, Waynesville, represented by Vin- 
son Smathers and Roy Francis; 1918, Wilson, repre-

Day, June 13, are listed below. In accord with a pro- 
vision of the Constitution, they have been placed in 
nomination by a special nominating committee, and 
are to be voted on by printed ballot mailed to the 
alumni by the acting secretary of the Association.

Provisions Concerning Voting 

Articles III, IV, and V of the By-Laws governing the elec- 
tion of officers, dues, and fiscal year, read as follows : • 

Article III — Election of Officers. 
1. There shall be an annual election for the offices of presi- 



dent, first vice-president, and second vice-president. Voting 
shall be by printed ballot. 

2. The polls shall be placed at such places as may be desig- 
nated by the board of directors, and shall be open from the 
1st day of May until noon on Alumni Day. 

3. Only those members who have paid their dues for the fiscal 
year shall be entitled to vote. 

4. The secretary shall mail to the members of the Associa- 
tion on or before the first day of May of each year, a printed 
ballot containing the names of those nominated through a peti- 
tion signed by fifty paid-up members of the Association, such 
petition having been filed with the secretary on or before the 
1st day of April. 

Article IV. — Dues. 
1. There shall be two classes of active members, as follows : 
(a) Annual, who shall pay $1.00 per year; (b) Life, who shall 
pay $100.00. 

Article V. — Fiscal Year. 
1. The official and fiscal year of the Association will close on 
June 30th of each year. 

Owing to the fact that the organization of the As- 
sociation has only recently been completed, and that a 
full-time secretary, as contemplated by the Associa- 
tion, has not been appointed, it has been decided by 
the Board of Directors, to open the polls on May 25, 
instead of May 1, and the acting secretary has been 
instructed to prepare ballots and mail them out on 
that date. 

It has also been decided by the Board of Directors 
to waive the payment of the annual dues ($1.00) as a 
pre-requisite to voting as it has been impossible to 
circularize the alumni earlier in the year concerning 
this matter. However, it is strongly urged that dues 
be sent in as the money is needed for the proper carry- 
ing on of the work of the Association. 

Inasmuch as the Association does not have a com- 
plete mailing list of the alumni, the acting secretary 
has been instructed to send ballots to alumni on The 
Alumni Review mailing list and to have ballots avail- 
able at the polling place at Alumni headquarters in 
Chapel Hill June 12 and 13. Ballots should be signed 
and sent to E. R. Rankin, acting secretary, at Chapel 
Hill prior to June 12, or should be signed and voted 
in person at Chapel Hill June 12 and 13. The polls 
close on June 13 in time to announce the result of the 
election at the alumni business meeting. 

A. L. Cox, '04, President.

pania. The bibliography is one of a number prepared 
by Dr. Leavitt during 1919-20 when he was on leave 
in South America prosecuting studies in South Amer- 
ican universities and libraries.

CAROLINA HAS SUCCESSFUL BASEBALL SEASON 



A brilliant baseball season reached its highest point 
May 2 when the Carolina varsity for the third con- 
secutive time during the season defeated Virginia. 
All three games were shutouts, the first being won at 
Charlottesville 6 to with Llewellyn pitching, the 
second in Greensboro 4 to with Bryson doing the 
box work, and the third at Chapel Hill 7 to with 
Wilson working. 

On top of the Virginia victories Carolina went to 
Raleigh and took the measure of N. C. State in a 
loosely played game 3 to 1. Carolina secured 13 hits 
during the game off Curtis, State's star boxman, but 
poor base running and generally loose offensive play- 
ing caused the score to be so low. Llewellyn, whose 
hand was injured in the Wake Forest game several 
days before, pitched a brilliant game, although his 
thumb was tightly bandaged and still sore. Hie struck 
out 12 men. 

Wake Forest threatened to be Carolina's most dan- 
gerous opponent early in the season but a 2 to vic- 
tory on Emerson field dampened the Baptist hopes 
considerably, and a later beating at Wake Forest com- 
pletely put out the spark of hope that springs so eter- 
nal in the human breast. The last score was 12 to 4, 
"Red" Johnston being the star of the game, with 
three hits to his credit, one a single, another a double, 
and then the longest home run ever seen on the Bap- 
tist diamond. 

( 'oach Fetzer had a wealth of material to work with 
when the practices began. He had almost the entire 
championship team of last year back and with Wil- 
son. Llewellyn and Biyson to do the pitching, it 
looked as if another championship team was a 
certainty. The infield was practically picked before 
practices began. Shirley was shifted from the out- 
field to first base and immediately became the best 
first baseman in the State, if not in the south. Up 
until the Maryland game on May 4 the fast left hand- 
er had played an errorless game. An error then 
broke his perfect fielding average. 

McLean went back to second, a place he is pre- 
eminently fitted to fill. He is a steady, consistent 
player with flashes now and then of brilliancy. He 
has hit steadily and consistently all season, and his 
bat in the second Virginia affair drove in enough runs 
1<> win the game. 

McDonald has been the same brilliant player at 
short that he was last year. The shortfielder has also 
been hitting them out with terrific force all season. 
On the Virginia trip he won almost every game with 
bis bat. 

Fred Morris on third has put up a good game, but 
as all third basemen gel them down their way hot, 
he has errored possibly more than any player in the 
infield. He has hit heavily all season, getting three 
hits in each of the Virginia games. 

Coach Fetzer had a real problem to face in the out- 
field. Sweetniaii was the only man back for the out- 
field and it looked as if he would suffer for a good 
set of outer gardeners. On top of all that Sweetman 
became ill and was unable to make the Virginia trip. 
He came back and took part in the Virginia games 
at Greensboro and Chapel Hill, however, and his catch 



in the Chapel Hill game was the best of the series and 
one of the most brilliant ever seen on Emerson field. 

The other two fields have been held down by 
"Lefty" Wilson and "Red" Johnston for the larger 
part of the time. Wilson has taken part in practically 
every game and has lead the team in bitting. He is 
a fair outfielder and a dangerous thrower and cool 
player all the time. 

Johnston has played a good game in right field and 
has hit at a good pace all season. He broke up the 
Trinity game with a long double that brought in three 
men and his hitting at Wake Forest is well worthy 
of comment, Johnston is really an infielder, but was 
shifted to the outfield. 

Bonner, a second string catcher, has been playing 
in the outfield when any one of the other men was 
unable to play. He played in several games when 
Sweetman was ill, and his hitting has been excellent. 
In the last Virginia game he secured three hits out 
of four chances and walked the other time. Bonner 
will be a worthy successor of "Casey" Morris. 

The Varsity opened the season by defeating Fur- 
man 8 to 0. Then came the Wake Forest game, and 
a 2 to victory was turned in by Captain Llewellyn. 
Lynchburg went clown 10 to 1, and Davidson was de- 
feated 2 to in a good game. 

The University of Georgia came to Chapel Hill 
flushed with a victory over the University of Mich- 
igan and expected to win easily from the Tar Heels. 
With Bryson pitching the most of the game Carolina 
won with comparative ease 9 to 6. Although the score 
was tied 5 to 5 in the eighth inning, Carolina picked 
up and displayed a powerfid offensive, that drove in 
the winning runs. 

The Trinity hitters were let down hard by "Lefty" 
Wilson, Carolina winning 9 to 5, with Simpson, Trin- 
ity pitching ace, suffering at the hands of the entire 
team. 

On the trip through Virginia during the Easter 
holidays Carolina took V. P. I. into the fold 6 to 3. 
Washington and Lee gave the team and the entire 
student bod,y a setback by winning 9 to 8, making all 
the runs in the eighth inning after the Varsity had 
led throughout the game. The next day, with Wilson 
pitching, the team came back with a vengeance, win- 
ning 6 to 3. 

Virginia was easy and Captain Llewellyn turned 
in a 6 to victory. With the return of the team 
after the holidays attention was given to Wake Forest 
on the Wake Forest grounds. It amounted to a 12 
to 4 score. Edwards and Johnston were hit hard and 
freely and Captain Llewellyn and Bryson held the 
Baptists in hand easily. 

The two Virginia games and the N. C. State victory 
were the last before the team departed on the long 
northern trip. At the present writing Carolina lost 
the first game of the trip to Maryland 10 to f>, the team 
going all to pieces on a game played in a downpour 
of rain. The (leorgetown game was rained out. 
Carolina defeated Swarthmore 3 to 0, and the College 
of the City of New York 15 to 1.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



SPLENDID WORK BY THE Y 

The election of C. C. Poindexter as president, Allan 
McGee as vice-president, and William Lillycrop as 
secretary, emphasizes the fact that the Young Men's 
Christian Association of the University is a going con- 
cern that has enlisted the leadership of the most virile 
and wholesome men of the campus. Poindexter is 
recognized as one of the most powerful football line- 
men in the South Atlantic division, is a student of dis- 
tinction, a speaker of power, a self-help student, and 
as ruggedly upstanding as the mountains from which 
he came to the University in 1919. McGee has made 
his letter in both football and baseball, is a social 
leader, was a captain in an overseas division, is a 
cleancut, all-round man. Lillycrop is an exceptional 
student, is working his way through college, is a leader 
in the ministerial band and has a fine passion for 
service. President C. J. Williams and cabinet, whose 
consecrated and efficient administration has been suc- 
cessfully devoted to the reorganization and deeper 
spiritualization of the work, transmits the Y to the 
worthy and to the devoted keening of a new adminis- 
tration that has the backing of the student, body. 

At the center of the widening influence of the Asso- 
ciation has been Harry Comer, one of the most spirit- 
ual and practical secretaries of the North American 
student movement. A graduate of Vanderbilt, secre- 
tary at Georgia Tech, overseas secretary, and state 
secretary of Tennessee, he chose, above other offers 
more attractive, to come to the University of North 
Carolina because of the present surging life of Caro- 
lina and the tremendous opportunities in a location 
and a position that put him in transforming touch 
with both a campus and a commonwealth. 

In the spirit of Christ and in the unique continu- 
ance of the University idea of making the "campus 
coextensive with the boundaries of the State," depu- 
tations of Carolina students carried the Christian 
message and the University ideals out to the public 
schools. Four teams totalling twenty-one men have 
been into the public schools of Charlotte, Greensboro. 
Raleigh and Wilmington. These teams have put on 
in these cities 30 musical programs and made a total of 
142 public talks on athletics, study and clean living. 
In Charlotte, 1,240 boys signed the "Come-Clean 
pledge cards." A team of University students put 
on a big religious meeting in the theatre at Durham 
one Sunday afternoon. These deputation teams Avere 
composed of football and baseball players, intercol- 
legiate debaters, honor men in scholarship, the chief 
cheerer, and leaders in the intellectual and spiritual 
life of the campus. 

Another new feature of the Y work organized this 
year has been the Freshman Friendship Council, 
whose purpose, through a council of picked freshmen, 
is to tie up as widely and deeply as possible all the new 
men with the best things in University life. 

The Y. M. C. A. is on the move. There has been 
not only these new features in the work, but also a 
quickening of interest in missions, Bible study, and 
personal evangelism. With its manifold departments 
and activities the Y has, in spite of its inadequate 
building, served quietly but sincerely the student body 
and the University. In the self-help crisis last fall 
the Y threw itself unreservedly into the job of finding 
jobs for scores of boys who either had to have a job or 
go home.— F. P. G.,' '09. 



THE REUNION OF 1902 

Forty members of the class of 1902 have given 
notice that they will attend the twenty-year reunion 
Tuesday, June 13. 

This is a remarkably large attendance, inasmuch 
as there were only about fifty graduates. The total 
number of students on the class roll, including those 
who did not graduate, is about 115. 

Nineteen-two has always distinguished itself by re- 
turning to the Hill in force for reunions, but it looks 
as if this June it would outdo all its previous records. 

Negotiations are under way for a baseball game be- 
tween 1902 and 1912 Tuesday afternoon. A number 
of 1902 enthusiasts have volunteered to take part in 
the contest. The class secretary wants to remind 
them that it will be well to bring along some old 
clothes. No attempt will be made to provide regular 
baseball uniforms. 

Instead of the usual banquet, an outdoor supper is 
planned. It will be served, most probably, in the 
grove east of the campus, back of the President's 
house. There will be some speechmaking, but the 
promise is that "there won't be much." 

All members of 1902 who have not communicated 
with the secretary, as to their plans about the reunion, 
are urged to write to him at once. Address Louis 
Graves, Chapel Hill. Since the University provides 
sleeping quarters for returning alumni during com- 
mencement, it is hoped that as many of the members 
of the class as possible will come in a day or so earlier 
than Tuesday, so that they will have time to look 
around. They should present themselves, immedi- 
ately upon arrival, at Alumni Headquarters, where 
there will be an information bureau. 



TO MEMBERS OF '97 

The class of 1897 celebrates its quarter-century re- 
union at commencement and in anticipation of the 
event David B. Smith, of Charlotte, president of the 
class, forwards this message to his classmates : 

The class of '97 will stage its twenty-fifth year re- 
union at commencement this year. The commence- 
ment dates are June 11-14, with alumni activities 
mainly centering about Alumni Day, June 13. On 
this latter date all members of the class of '97, the 
noblest class ever graduated from the University, are 
urged to return to the Hill, where we purpose to take 
stock of the last quarter century and renew our love 
and devotion for Alma Mater. 

Don't imagine that you can't come. You can. The 
work will go along for a day or two just as well with- 
out you. Pack the wife and the children into the 
flivver and take the most direct course. The roads 
are good and getting better all the time. We want 
to see '97 and its family, and wander about the cam- 
pus once more together. 



Professor W. D. Toy, of the department of Ger- 
man, represented the University of North Carolina as 
Southern University exchange lecturer at Vanderbilt 
in early April. While the guest of Vanderbilt he de- 
livered three lectures, his subjects being : The Per- 
sonal Element in Goethe's Works, An Introduction to 
Schiller, and The Rise and Development of Modern 
Prussia.

WOMEN PLAN BIG REUNION 

This year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 
coming of women to the University, and Carolina 
daughters are busy making plans for a reunion in 
June to .celebrate the event. Through the Woman's 
Association, letters of inquiry have been sent out to 
two hundred and fifty former women students and 
from present indications the reunion bids fair to be 
a great success. 

Tuesday, June 13, Alumni Day, is the day to be 
used for the celebration. The women will have a 
place on the program at the exercises to be held that 
morning. Then at the Alumni Luncheon a special 
table will be reserved for them. However, those 
whose classes are holding reunions this year will be 
at liberty to sit with the members of their own class. 

To Banquet At Co-Ed House 

The most important feature of the day's program 
will be the banquet that night. This is to be served 
in the dining room of the Co-Ed House at 6 :30 p. m. 
The charge will be $1.25 per plate. Of course the 
primary object is to have a jolly good time and to get 
acquainted with every one. Since this is the first at- 
tempt to gather together all the women who have at- 
tended the University, the event promises to be of 
great benefit not only to the group itself but to the 
University. The women have come to see that if they 
are to be an integral part of the University they must 
unite in an effort to show that they are as loyal to 
their Alma Mater as the sons of Carolina. They can 
discuss together what co-education has been in the 
past and what it will mean to the girl of the future. 

The program committee has arranged a few in- 
formal talks from various alumnae. They will tell 
"how they did here in their day," and the girl of to- 
day will picture campus life at the present time. 

A Woman's Building Needed 
If the long-cherished dream of the Carolina girl for 
a real woman's building is to be realized in the near 
future, it would seem an opportune time to discuss 
plans for it. This is a subject of Tutal concern to 
every woman connected with the University. Those 
who came here in the past know that the hardest prob- 
lem to solve was that of finding suitable lodging and 
board. The women were scattered all over town, and 
under such disadvantageous conditions little or no 
cooperation among them was possible. The two 
houses fitted up for the girls this year have met the 
need temporarily, but it must be remembered that 
they can only be temporary, and that the whole future 
of co-education at the University is centered in a 
building for women. 

Co-Ed Booklet to Be Issued 
The chairman of the reunion committee, Miss Louise 
Venable, is planning to print a booklet containing sta- 
tistics regarding all alumnse, and giving as complete 
information as it is possible to obtain about each one. 
This will be ready by commencement. 

A Word About the Price 
The expenses for the one day need not exceed two 
or three dollars. There will be no charge for rooms, 
which may be reserved in the women's dormitories. 
Board may be had in the same place at the rate of 
fifty cents per meal. Tickets for the alumni lunch- 
eon will be $1.50. Letters of information should be 



addressed to Miss Catherine Boyd, Chapel Hill, N. ('. 
Reservations for rooms may also be made through her. 
Every woman who has been at Carolina ought to 
plan to come back at commencement for at least this 
one clay. It should be a day long to be remembered — 
a time of renewing old acquaintances and of making 
new ones. ' ' Carolina spirit ' ' has a feminine side, and 
this will be the time to show the University that the 
women are its eager, loyal and enthusiastic supporters. 

Adeline Denham, '22. 



PHARMACISTS PLAN FOR BIG ANNIVERSARY 

The anniversary committee appointed to develop 
and further plans for a celebration of the founding 
of the School of Pharmacy is now centering its efforts 
in bringing a large group of pharmacy alumni to 
Chapel Hill on June 13 to commemorate the twenty- 
fifth anniversary of the school's existence. 

In 1897, the board of trustees of the University 
authorized President Alderman to create a separate 
school for courses in pharmacy and to appoint some 
pharmacist of distinction to assume direction of the 
school. In accordance with these instructions the 
president in March of 1897 secured Edward Vernon 
Howell, A.B. of Wake Forest College, Ph.G. of the 
Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, native of Raleigh 
but then of Rocky Mount, to assume charge of the 
work. 

Beginning with the college year 1897-98 and con- 
tinuing without interruption to the present date, the 
School of Pharmacy has steadfastly maintained high 
ideals with ever-increasing thoroughness of instruc- 
tion in spite of little material aid and at times in the 
face of discouraging and trying conditions. With a 
quarter-century record of substantial achievement and 
difficulties overcome it seems well to pause and place 
a peg at 1922 and to call back for reunion the men 
who have profited by its efforts — the students from 
'97 on who cherish memories of days at Alma Mater. 

Tuesday of commencement week has been selected 
as the date on which pharmacy alumni will foregather 
for sessions of business and pleasure. The main event 
scheduled for the anniversary is a banquet to be held 
in the new University Cafeteria on Tuesday evening 
at nine o'clock. A number of "stunts" are being de- 
veloped for this occasion and advance information 
from the committee in charge sounds very interesting. 
It was found necessary to make a charge of two dol- 
lars per ticket to cover the actual cost of the banquet. 
These tickets must be secured in advance from J. G. 
Beard, Secretary, Chapel Hill, and it is hoped that 
applications for them will be mailed as early as pos- 
sible. Several prominent pharmacists who are alumni 
of other schools will be present, among them being all 
the members of the State Board of Pharmacy headed 
by Mr. E. V. Zoeller, of Tarboro, for thirty years 
president of the board. 

Another feature planned is a baseball game between 
old students and the class of 1922, to be played Tues- 
day afternoon. 

All returning alumni will be assigned to rooms in 
the new Steele dormitory, which has been reserved for 
the use of pharmacy students during commencement. 
Inquiries concerning the anniversary celebration 
should be directed to the secretary of the committee in 
charge, J. G. Beard, at Chapel Hill.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Suggested Campus Zones 



The accompanying map and the explanation of the zoning plans in this column are to be 
considered in connection with the editorial and letter entitled ' ' Zoning the Campus ' ' which 
appears on a preceding Page — Editor. 

Author's Explanations 

The University buildings in existence or under construction are inked in solid; the build- 
ings planned by McKim, Meade, and White but not yet erected are indicated by broken diag- 
onal lines; the buildings suggested by the writer are indicated by solid diagonal lines. The 
circles enclosing numbers indicate building areas or buildings. The reader may get his 
bearings by locating first X, the Bynum Gymnasium; Y, Memorial Hall; and Z, Swain Hall. 
S is the new class athletic field. V and W are suggested sites for monuments — a War Me- 
morial, for instance, and a monument for Elisha Mitchell. 

Plan 1 

A : A new Library. 

B: History, Economics, Sociology, Education and Commerce. 

C: English; Modern Languages; Ancient Languages and Archaeology; Philosophy and 
Comparative Theology ; Music ; History of the Pine Arts with a Museum of Casts and Pho- 
tograpnic Reproductions; and Journalism. 

D : Law. 

E: Zoology and Botany. 

F: Administration and Extension (Alumni Building). 

G: Student Activities (Graham Memorial). 

H and I: Engineering.

M : Chemistry. 

N: Medicine and Pharmacy- 

and P: State Hospital. 

Q: State Hospital (Contagious Diseases). 

K : Gymnasium. 

T : Men 's Dormitories. 

U : Women 's Dormitories- 
Plan 11 

(Note: In case Medicine and Pharmacy move to a city.) 
All areas remain as in Plan I, except that areas N, O, P, and Q become dormitory areas. 

Plan 111 
(Note: In ease Medicine and Pharmacy move to a city.) 
Areas A, D, F. G, J, B, T, and U remain as in Plan I. 
B: As in Plan I except that Commerce moves out of this area. 
C: As in Plan I except that Journalism moves out of this area. 
E : Journalism. 
H and K : Commerce. 
I : Dormitories. 

L and M: Zoology and Botany. 
N : Chem'stry, Physics, Mathematics, and Geology. 
and P : A School of Engineering. 
Q : Dormitories. 

A Possible Method — Possibly an Obvious One 

The writer assumes that with comparatively little interior alteration class room buildings 
can be used as well by one Department as by another, and laboratory buildings by one Science 
as by another- 

The following moves in the order indicated might be regarded as natural in the develop- 
ment of Plan I. 

1: A building for Chemistry is erected in Area M (South of Peabody). Zoology or 
Botany moves into old Chemistry Hall. 

2: Buildings are erected for Geology, in Area K (North of Phillips and East of Swain) 
and for Commerce, in Area B- 

3: A building is erected for History and Economics, and one for Sociology, in Area B. 
The Modern Languages move into the building that History, Economies, and Sociology moved 
out of. 

4: Buildings are erected for Medicine and Pharmacy in Area N, and for the first wards 
of the State Hospital in Area 0. The old Pharmacy building is torn down. 

5: The first sections of a new Library are erected in Area A. A building is erected for 
certain Engineering Departments, in Area H (Between the old Library and New West) ; 
and the Old Library building is extended to the East for the remaining Engineering depart- 
ments, leaving Phillips Hall for the exclusive use of Physics and Mathematics. 

li: Buildings are erected for Music, in Area B; and for Journalism, in Area C. 

7: A building is erected for Education in Area C. Certain departments of Chemistry 
move into Peabody. Ami so on. The zones would then be established. The rest would be a 
matter of expanding within them.

ARCHITECT AND SITE CHOSEN FOR GRAHAM 
MEMORIAL BUILDING 

Members of the Graham Memorial Building Com- 
mittee, at meetings held on April 1 and 26, have 
selected the lot on which the old Inn stood as the site 
of the Memorial Building and have retained McKim, 
Meade, and White, of New York, as consulting archi- 
tects, together with Mr. A. C. Nash, architect of the 
T. C. Atwood Organization, as constructive architect. 

In choosing the old Inn lot as the site of the build- 
ing, the committee has secured one of the most com- 
manding sites on the campus, and accordingly is 
obligated, with the University, to provide a building 
sufficiently imposing in appearance to justify its utili- 
zation. It is proposed that the first unit shall cost 
approximately $150,000 (of which $63,000 is in hand 
and $60,000 still due from subscriptions) and as early 
as possible an additional unit is to be provided costing 
$100,000 more. Plans are to be drawn in such way as 
to provide for definite, easy expansion as occasion may 
require in the future. 

As yet, the actual plans of the building have not 
reached the drafting stage. Mr. Kendall, of McKim, 
Meade, and White, the consulting architects, and Mr. 
Nash, the architect of the Atwood Organization, have 
been making preliminary studies of the front of the 
campus. It is proposed that this building and the 
buildings of the new Methodist church shall harmonize 
architecturally with the plans of the campus, and 
form, in a sense, the main front of the campus. A 
sub-committee has been assigned the duty of suggest- 
ing features which are to be included in the building, 
and at a meeting of the whole committee and archi- 
tects to be held at some date in May, the plans will 
begin to take definite shape. 

Now that the actual program is about to get under 
way it is highly desirable that all subscriptions be 
paid in, that the total subscriptions be increased to 
yield a net fund of $150,000, and that the work be 
hastened in every way possible. 



ROBERT M. HANES, ALUMNI MARSHAL 

President Albert L. Cox of the General Alumni 
Association, has happily appointed Robert M. Hanes, 
'12, to be alumni marshal for this commencement. 
Presidents and secretaries of classes holding reunions 
should get in touch with him at once as to the pro- 
gram of alumni events which are to signalize Tuesday, 
June 13, as Alumni Day. Hanes' address is Winston- 
Salem in care of the Wachovia Bank & Trust Com- 
pany, of which he is vice-president. Bob Hanes is 
one of the progressive spirits in the "youth and the 
commonwealth" movement in North Carolina. 
Alumni Day is to be congratulated on the fact of his 
field marshalship.
