Printing- — 

Is the Inseparable Companion of Achievement 

Every activity of mankind is accompanied by printing, cither in advertising 
matter or in forms that must be used to forward the activity. 

From the registering of the birth of a child to the final certificate of his death, 
every dav printing must play a part, and without it man would not achieve 

// is only from the time that movable types were invented 
that real achievement in human life was made, and today 
achievement follows only where printed matter is used, and 
lots of it. 

The man who thinks he can get along without printing will soon find out 
that he will not get far, and the more he uses printed matter, the greater advance- 
ment he will make. 

We prod u ee it in any and every form.

The New Year 

Un Thursday, September 28, the University got off 
to a fine start for a new year. Five new buildings 
were put into service, thirty-two new teachers of vari- 
ous ranks ranging from instructor to full professor 
joined the faculty group, and a student body of 1800 
settled down to the tasks of the campus. 

Not only in new buildings and increased faculty 
and student body has the institution evidenced its 
readiness for the big job ahead. The equipment of 
offices, laboratories, and libraries has gone steadily 
forward, and the requirements for entrance have 
been held to the fifteen unit minimum more strictly 
than ever before. All along the line, there has been 
a distinct tightening up, and from all indications 
1922-23 should be, and must be, Carolina's greatest 


University Day 

Thursday, October 12, the University's birthday, is 
marked down in the calendar of the University and 
of every alumnus as a red letter day. Although it 
has been celebrated 128 times in the past, the 129th 
anniversary will be attended here on the campus with 
fitting ceremonials, and within the State and beyond 
its borders, loyal sons will gather to honor the day. 

The program for the campus is distinctly worth- 
while and will bring many alumni back to the campus. 
Wednesday night, the 11th, Secretary Grant of the 
General Alumni Association will bring the class sec- 
retaries of the various classes to the Hill for a con- 
ference on class organization. The same night the 
department of music will bring the Russian Sym- 
phony Orchestra to Memorial Hall. Thursday morn- 
ing Walter Murphy, president of the General Alumni 
Association, will be the principal speaker at the 
formal celebration in Memorial Hall, and Thursday 
afternoon on Emerson Field Carolina and Trinity 
will meet for the first time in twenty-five years at 
football. Thursday night the alumni, visitors, and 
faculty will attend a reception given in their honor 
by President and Mrs. Chase. 

Beyond the campus walls, both within and without 
tin' State, local celebrations will be held in accord 
with the ideas of the local groups and the suggestions 
furnished by the Alumni Association. Emphasis in 
all of Iln j celebrations will be placed on the oppor- 
tunity for united alumni service, and it. is hoped 
that the day, from this point of view, will be the 
greatest in the University's history. 

□ □ □ 
Freshmen Throng the Campus 

Freshmen from every quarter of the State, some 

700 strong, thronged the campus the first two days of 

registration, and are now started on the great adven- 
ture of college life. 

Among the hundreds of problems with which the 
University is confronted, the presence of these 700 
new recruits constitutes the most difficult one with 
which the University must deal. Receiving them, 
housing them, assisting them in finding themselves — 
this is the supreme task of the. institution, a task in 
which the University cannot afford to fail. 

To meet the situation satisfactorily, the University 
has adopted the following new measures: the Dean of 
Students will devote the greater part of his time to 
the particular duty of assisting freshmen in making 
the transition from school to college successfully; 
three chapel periods each week will be devoted ex- 
clusively to them; and forty odd members of the 
faculty will act in the capacity of volunteer advisers 
to the new men. 

All three of the measures commend themselves to 
The Review and all will be watched with great 
interest by the alumni. 

□ □ □ 

The Building Program 

On October 12th, 1921, with the Grand Lodge of 
Masons officiating as on the same date in 1793, the 
University formally and officially projected the pres- 
ent building program which has already revolution- 
ized the campus. On the approaching University 
Day, those who return to the campus will not only 
find that the anniversary exercises are being held in 
a re-made Memorial Hall, that the railroad is deliv- 
ering material direct from cars to new buildings, that 
468 students arc domiciled in four new dormitories, 
and that classes are being conducted in one of the new 
recitation buildings, but that the builders are ahead 
of the construction schedule. Within the eighteen 
months since the adjournment of the legislature of 
1921, which authorized the new buildings, the Uni- 
versity has undergone a wonderful physical expan- 
sion, and has given evidence of the greatness to which 
it will in the course of the years attain. 

D □ □ 

The New Recitation Building 

We haven't become familiar as yet with the names 
of the new buildings on the campus, but whether or 
not we know the name of the new recitation building 
now occupied by the School of Public Welfare, the 
School of ( omnierce, and the departments of History 
and Rural Social Science, there is something we want 
to say about it. And what we wish to say is just this: 
Finally, these four schools or departments, after years 
of separation and wandering in the desert of the 
campus, have found a common abiding place. 

We do not know just what it will mean to these 



allied interests to be grouped comfortably, with 
adequate offices and well equipped classrooms, under 
one big roof. That remains to be demonstrated. But 
we cannot escape the belief that the close contacts, 
the stimulating exchange of ideas, the effective getting 
together in cooperative endeavor, will lead to a finer 
esprit de corps than has been possible heretofore. At 
any rate, we know that with convenient offices, with 
increased clerical assistance, and with surroundings 
more conducive to comfort and effective work, these 
departments will be able to make a finer impression 
on the material passing through them than ever 

For the State at large we believe it will also have a 
significance. Undoubtedly North Carolina is begin- 
ning to think earnestly in the terms of her economic, 
social, and cultural life. The bringing together of 
these departments, with increased facilities for the 
investigation and direction of economic and social 
forces now at work in North Carolina, must inevitably 
work to the very great good of all the people. In the 
completion of this new workshop we believe we see a 
splendid instrument shaped for the bringing about 
of a finer North Carolina civilization. 


The Curve Swings Upward 

From time to time we have contrasted the appear- 
ance of the trees and grass and walkways of the 
campus with that of the interiors of the various build- 
ings, and have expressed ourselves as finding the 
former the more pleasing of the two. And if we 
were called on for an expression of opinion now, our 
opinion would probably be the same. 

But there would be a difference. The new dormi- 
tories, to be sure, are not luxurious. The hallways 
are narrow, and the trim of the rooms is not exactly 
a mahogany finish. But the construction has fol- 
lowed a plan, and the plan is very worthwhile. 
Furthermore, the new recitation building, while 
simply appointed, has fine light, and conveys the im- 
pression of being well suited to its purpose. One can- 
not walk through it without feeling that he is in a 
building that is distinctly creditable. 

Last, but not least, the annual overhauling of 
Alumni Hall leaves it not of less but more attractive 
appearance on the inside. For once, the President's 
office has an attractive rug; the Business Manager's 
office, doubled in size since June, is covered with a 
well-laid, sound-absorbing cork carpet that doesn't 
offend the eye; here and there in the offices attractive 
steel filing cabinets of similar design replace the 
wooden cases of many kinds. 

Of course, there is much about the interior of the 
various buildings that still falls far short of pleasing 
the eye, and much that more thought on the part of 
those in charge of the buildings can change for the 
better without a very great expenditure of money ; 
but in spite of that, the beauty curve of the interior 
of the buildings of the campus has begun to swing 
upward ! 


The Old Dormitories 

Doubtless there is no need to speak of the perfectly 
obvious. The administration and the Building Com- 
mittee have long since thought of the interiors of the 

old' dormitories, and are planning at the very first 
moment possible to renovate and modernize the in- 
teriors of these century old buildings. First things 
have had to receive first consideration. But in view 
of the fearful dilapidation of these buildings, and the 
fact that during the summer they are jammed to the 
limit by women who have spent nine months in North 
Carolina school rooms, we express the hope that some- 
thing can be done in the immediate future for their 
proper rehabilitation. In the past, failure to provide 
for the comfort of these teachers possibly has been 
excusable, but further delay cannot and should not 
be tolerated. 


Fifty Alumni Set the Pace 

It is estimated that the Aiumni Secretary's office 
will require $5,000 to run it for the first year. No 
revenue will come in until the local associations are 
formed, for it must be through local secretaries that 
fees are collected. 

To make it possible to get the office under way in 
advance of the raising of any revenue, fifty loyal 
alumni of the University have pledged to advance 
the necessary $5,000 to get the work started. Will- 
ingness to do this sprang from a deep realization of 
the need of a general alumni organization and pro- 
gram, and the faith that the alumni generally would 
support such a movement as soon as they saw a means 
of being brought into closer contact with each other 
and the campus. 

If the support of the remaining 10,000 alumni 
approximates in the least the loyalty of these fifty 
men, there can be no question but that here will be 
one of the finest alumni associations in the country. 


Forty-five Carolina alumni received license to prac- 
tice law in North Carolina at the examinations con- 
ducted in August by the Supreme Court. The total 
number to receive license was 83. The list of alumni 
receiving license is as follows : 

W. M. Allen, Elkin; M. A. Braswell, Whitakers; R. 

F. Crouse, Sparta ; A. B. Cummings, Winston-Salem ; 
R. L. Coburn, Plymouth; R. D. Dixon, Edenton ; D.

The main points in the ground work that must be 
done in preparing for carrying through an alumni 
program can be briefly laid out as follows: 

1. Finding University men. Of the eleven thou- 
sand alumni only fifty per cent can be reached from 
here with our present information. 

2. The publication of an alumni catalogue. This 
will require an endless amount of work — and accurate 
work. It should be rushed to completion. 

3. The gathering of the facts for use in writing a 
history of the part University men played in the 
Spanish-American and great world wars. Some 
work is still to be done in connection with the record 
of our men in the Civil war. 

4. The building up of a secretary's office, with com- 
plete and accurate records of all alumni; with the 
means of ready contact with any alumnus at any time 
— the medium between the present University and 
that great group of men scattered throughout the 
world that are jealously and admiringly watching the 
growth of the University, and happy to call them- 
selves sons of Carolina. 

5. Financing the secretary's office. 

6. Keeping the channel open between alumni and 
classes through The Alumni Review, which should 
be built up by alumni support, and going regularly to 
10.000 Carolina men, rather than 3,500. 

7. The formation of more than 100 local Univer- 
sity alumni associations. 

8. The formation of a permanent class secretaries' 

In addition there are several incomplete or incipient 
alumni projects: 1. The Graham Memorial Fund. 
2. The Alumni Loyalty Fund. 3. The project of 
the Washington. D. C. alumni to raise funds to 
beautify, embellish, and adorn the University campus. 
4. The proposal for the Stacy Memorial, sponsored 
by the class of 1916. 5. The Carolina Inn. 

Elaboration of all this work and these projects will 
be given through Tin: Review and local gatherings 
from time to time. The only purpose in this layout is 
to give the alumni a feeling of the magnitude of the 
work to be accomplished. 

Alumni Directors Meet 

The Board of Directors of the General Alumni 
Association held its first meeting in Greensboro at 
the O. Henry Hotel on August 3rd ; considered several 
matters of pressing importance before the alumni, 
and outlined the work to be attempted for the first 

Those present at the meeting were President Walter 
Murphy, of Salisbury. Vice-President C. L. Weill, of 
Greensboro, and Secretary Daniel L. Grant, of the 
Association, officers, and from the Board of Directors, 
Leslie Weill, Goldsboro, representing the third dis- 
trict; Oscar J. Coffin, Raleigh, fourth district; Burton 
Craige, Winston-Salem, fifth district; Miss Mary 
Henderson, Salisbury, eighth district; Robert Las- 
siter, Charlotte, ninth district ; and by invitation Clem 
G. Wright, of Greensboro, W. ( '. < 'mighenour, of Salis- 
bury, and Charles T. Woollen, of Chapel Hill. The 
other members of the Board are Robert II. Wright, 
Greenville, second vice-president ; J. C. B. Ehringhaus, 
Elizabeth City, first district; W. L. Long, Roanoke 

Rapids, second district; Miss Kathrine Robinson, 
Fayetteville, sixth district ; Isaac S. London, Rocking- 
ham, seventh district ; R. R. Williams, Asheville, 
tenth district; and Shepard Bryan, Atlanta, Georgia, 
representing those alumni beyond North Carolina. 

According to the provisions of the constitution there 
are eleven appointive members of the Board ; one from 
each congressional district in the State, and one from 

Change in Constitution Sought 

Shortly after the adoption of the Association's con- 
stitution at the meeting last June consideration began 
of the provision which states that the length of the 
term of office for the officers shall be one year. Many 
prominent alumni argue that this does not permit 
sufficient time for the officers to institute and carry 
through any program. 

Particularly is this true in the case of the first 
officers when a general association and program is 
being gotten under way. So far, the opinion ex- 
pressed has been unanimously in favor of the length- 
ening of the term of office to two years. So persistent 
has this become that the Board of Directors, at its 
first meeting, agreed to ask the local associations at 
their fall meeting to vote to suspend those provisions 
of the Constitution and By-Laws which provide for 
the short term, with the avowed purpose of asking for 
the reelection of the same officers at the June, 1923 
meeting, proceeding on the theory that "it is poor 
policy to change horses in the middle of the stream. 
Anyone familiar with the work to be done must 
recognize that it will not. be possible to get further 
than midstream by the end of one year, especially 
when there was some unavoidable delay in getting 
under way. 

If the Association endorses this program, it will 
automatically be a mandate to the nominating com- 
mittee to replace in nomination the present officers, 
and then when they have been reelected change the 
Constitution in such manner as to make the term of 
office two years. If the change is made beforehand 
and the incumbents are elected for two years, it will 
mean that their total term will be three years. This 
is contrary to the demand. 

In order to endorse the request of the Board of 
Directors, local associations should pass the follow- 
ing resolution, or one similar in effect: 

"Because we believe that the work of the General Alumni 
Association will be hampered by the change of officers at the 
end of one year, and therefore consider it wise to continue 
the present officers for another year, 

' ' Be it Resolved by this Local University Alumni Asso- 
ciation that 'and they shall be ineligible for reelection to suc- 
ceed themselves' of Article IV, Section 5 of the Constitution; 
and 'This committee shall nominate two men for the office 
of president, and two men each for the offices of first vice- 
president and second vice-president; in making the nomination 
for first vice-president and second vice-president, the nominat- 
ing committee shall provide for the election of a vice-president 
from each of the two great sections of the State: viz, the 
eastern section and the western section,' of Article II, Section 
1 of the By-Laws, be repealed until after the date for reelection 
of officers. " 

Certain other changes in the constitution were con- 
sidered by the Board of Directors, and a committee 
composed of Leslie Weil, chairman, Oscar J. Coffin, 



and Daniel L. Grant was appointed to prepare these 
changes for presentation to the association for vote. 
These will he offered in a later issue of The Review; 
and a vote called for at the next General Association 
Meeting, after the reelection of officers, if the sug- 
gested suspension discussed above meets with the 
approval of the alumni at the fall meetings. 

Plans for Alumni Meetings 

According to the plan of the Board of Directors, 
two meetings of each local alumni association will be 
held each year throughout North Carolina. One 
meeting is to be on or near October 12th ; and the 
other is to be a Christmas holiday, clnb-natured 

Beyond North Carolina there will perhaps be fifteen 
or twenty local associations scattered throughout the 
world. Meetings for these will not correspond with 
those associations within the State. One meeting will 
likelv suffice, and it woidd most naturally come on 
October 12th. 

There are at present in North Carolina only about a 
dozen or fifteen active local associations. There should 
be one in at least 85 of the 100 counties, and many of 
the larger and more densely populated counties should 
have two or more, making a total of between 90 and 
100 associations for the State. 

The efforts of the Central Office are now being bent 
toward the completing of the work of forming these 
associations. October 12th is near at hand and no 
local group contemplating the formation of a local 
association should fail to use the pulling power of the 
University's birthday as a time to gather Carolina 
men together. It is already assured that all the active 
locals will meet on this date (save in two instances 
where peculiar local conditions make it distinctly un- 
wise) : many that have become inactive are reorgan- 
izing, while a large number of local groups are form- 
ing an organization for the first time. 

Every alumnus in North Carolina should meet with 
some group of Carolina men on the 12th. "Where un- 
organized, organize; where disorganized, reorganize; 
and where organized tighten your belt and lend what- 
ever of influence you can in causing others to 

The program for this October 12th meeting should 
be shaped up in accordance with the spirit of the 
occasion: a study of alumni work, both general ami 
local should he made, disseminating full information 
about the association's program; the University's 
growth, needs and opportunities should be under- 
stood ; and together, alumni and alma mater should 
rededicate themselves to building a greater Stale, a 
greater south and a greater nation. Any institution 
of whatever character must have an outlet and pur- 
pose; and from the petty details of daily life men 
must be constantly called to a task if they are going 
to live according to their highest ideals and noblest 
purposes. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump, 
and ten thousand men moved by the vision of a Davie ; 
the faith, pride and earnest toil of a Battle; and the 
ideals and passion for public service of a Graham 
can transform a state — a nation, if need be. It was 
for this end that the University was created ; and 
every man that has benefited by its opportunities, has 
been broadened by its contacts, and has enjoyed its 
life is a co-worker with the University in this mission. 

As scion as the work is fairly well under way within 
the State, attention will be given to the large number 

of alumni living beyond the boundaries of North Caro- 
lina. It is expected now to get the work there under 
way during November, December and January. 


Under the direction of the Alumni Secretary, and 
those permanent class officers now residing in Chapel 
Hill, there will be held in Chapel Hill on the evening 
of October 11th a conference of all permanent class 
secretaries and the formation of a class secretaries' 

It is pretty clear to those conversant with alumni 
work that the class is the most effective unit to carry 
on alumni work. With the increasing size of the Uni- 
versity student body one no longer knows personally 
the entire group, but ties in with those of his own 
class with whom he is in college for four years. This 
results in a sense of class attachment that in many 
instances overshadows the consciousness of attach- 
ment to the University itself, so far as active interest 
and cooperative work is concerned. 

Practically all classes since 1900 have formed per- 
manent class organizations before the day of gradu- 
ation ; many others have elected permanent officers at 
a subsequent reunion. A large number of the classes, 
however, have none acting for them. The sub-com- 
mittee of the Board of Directors has instructed the 
Secretary to secure the services of some man from 
each class as far back as 1885. The work that will 
be required of the representatives of the older classes, 
whose ranks are already fast thinning, will be largely 
that of getting in touch with their classmates, and of 
compiling accurate and complete data concerning their 
lives and accomplishments. 

The secretaries of the classes of the past twenty -five 
years will lie expected to locate their classmates, 
gather information, publish regularly class histories, 
keep in touch regularly with classmates and inform 
everyone of the important happenings, build up the 
class section in The Alumni Review, and work coop- 
eratively in carrying to complete success the reunions 
at University commencements. 

Every class secretary heard from so far has indi- 
cated that he will be present on the 11th for the con- 
ference ; will take part in the University Day pro- 
gram on the 12th. and will see the Carolina-Trinity 
game on Emerson field, the first game between these 
two institutions to lie played in twenty-five years. 


Gutzon Borglum was awarded the contract on July 
6 for the Aycock monument, in memory of the late 
C. B. Aycock, '80. which will probably be unveiled in 
Capitol square in Raleigh July fourth of next year. 

The noted American sculptor has given North Caro- 
lina the greatest satisfaction with his Henry Wyatt 
monument in the square and in the Vance memorial 
in Statuary hall, Washington. He made a $100,000 
war group in Newark, N. J., and his Stone mountain 
achievement is to be the colossal work of the western 

The Aycock monument will cost $18,000. The fund 
was raised by voluntary gifts of people and school 
children. But for war's delays the monument would 
have been completed years ago. 




Construction at the University has gone ahead with 
surprising: speed in the last few months. Surprising;, 
certainly, in view of the way in which public building 
projects arc usually conducted. The satisfying prog- 
ress has been due in part to night work. There have 
been weeks at a time when the contractor has had a 
force at work under electric lights. 

There is not a man, woman or child in North Caro- 
lina who has not a direct personal interest in the way 
tax money is spent. Therefore the use by the Uni- 
versity of the funds voted for improvements by the 
1921 legislature is a vital matter to all the people of 
the State. It is just about a year since the present 
building enterprise was launched, so that this is a 
fitting time to review what has been done. 

The amount appropriated by the legislature winter 
before last for improvements at the University was 
$1,490,000. Three-fourths of this, approximately 
$1,100,000, goes for new buildings. The rest is for 
furniture, equipment, extension of the power plant 
and of water and sewer lines, construction of a rail- 
way spur to save hauling costs, grading of parts of 
the campus, reconstruction of the heating system, and 
certain other smaller projects. 

Seven new buildings on the campus, four for sleep- 
ing quarters and three fur recitation rooms, form the 
core of the building plan. The first of the dormi- 
tories was begun last October, and all four are now 
completed. Two were in use during the summer 
school. The history and social sciences building is 
occupied. The languages building, the concrete for 
the third floor of which is already laid, should be 
done December 15. The law building, the last of the 
seven, is scheduled for completion next spring. 

Fireproof Dormitory Quadrangle 

The new dormitories form a quadrangle on the area 
that was known until a. vear ago as the class athletic 

field, just inside the east wall of the campus and 
adjoining the Emerson stadium. They are of Colon- 
ial design, with walls of red brick and with concrete 
base and facings that give something of the appear 
ance of limestone. The construction is fireproof. Even 
the surface flooring, a composition laid upon the con- 
crete, is non-combustible. Nothing but doors and 
window frames are of wood. 

Exclusive of the contractors' profit, which takes the 
form of a definite fee, the cost of each of these four 
dormitories is about $99,000. Each will accommodate 
116 students. Thus the cost per student is about 
$853. With the "overhead" counted in Ibis figure 
would be raised to about $920. This compares with 
a cost of $2,200 per student for' the Steele dormitory, 
winch was put up under the direction of the now de- 
funct state building commission when costs were at 
or near their highest just after the world war. 

As first designed, the new 7 dormitories were 1o have 
space for 90 students each. But it was found that if 
dormer windows were built, there would be ample 
space under the roof for another story. The utiliza- 
tion of the fourth stories adds the equivalent of a 
fifth dormitory. The quadrangle has a total capacity 
of 464 students. 

A visitor who goes through one of the dormitories 
gets the impression that a fair balance has been struck 
between the luxurious and the primitive. Certainly 
luxury is the last word that would occur to one as 
descriptive of these rooms with rough plaster walls 
and without ornamentation of any sort. Assuredly 
there are no "frills" here. On the other hand, there 
seems to he everything essential to what, in the par- 
lance of labor mediation, is known as a "decent stand- 
ard of living." There is an electric light for each of 
two students in a room. There is a closet for each. 
And there is room enough for the room-mates to 
move about without bumping into one another. On 

Saunders Hall — The New Home for History and Social Science 



each floor, midway of the long central corridor, are 
shower baths and wash basins and toilets. Ventilator 
shafts carry the used air from the corridors up 
through the roof. 

It is plain enough that the propensities of the youth- 
ful male animal toward destructiveness — or, call it 
carelessness — have been taken into account in the 
drawing up of plans and specifications. For there is 
no use pretending that the civilizing influence of a 
seat of learning is quite civilizing enough to make 
young men recently set free from family control ex- 
hibit always a tender regard for property around 
about them. 

So, the walls are left rough, to discourage the use 
of pencils upon them. The doors and window frames 
are painted a dark red, a sort of cherry, so as not to 
show smudges easily. The floors and partitions and 
fixtures around the baths are such that apparently one 
would have to go at them with malice and chilled- 
steel tools in order to do visible damage. The con- 
crete stairways have metal pieces set in as treads to 
receive the impact of the thousands of feet that will 
beat upon them in years to come. 

Three Recitation Room Buildings 

As the attendance at the University has increased 
in recent years, the need for more teaching space has 
become as urgent as the need for more living quarters. 
Every available room has been used for classes morn- 
ing and afternoon, and there has been bad over- 

The three structures going up on what was not 
long ago the tennis reservation, on the left as one 
marches straight down the "axis" running from the 
South building to the woods, will relieve considerably, 
though not completely, this congestion. 

Like the dormitories, the classroom buildings are 
of brick and concrete and follow the Colonial design. 
Partitions and floors are fireproof, but the interiors 
here are to have a somewhat less severe look than the 
rooms and corridors of the quadrangle to the east. 
The most approved modern standards have been ap- 
plied to the lighting, heating and ventilation. 

Tt is too early yet to tell what will be the cost of the 
three classroom buildings. It will probably be some- 
where near $170,000 each. 

Unusual Kind of Contract 

The kind of contract under which the University 
buildings are being constructed is an unusual one. 
The trustees' building committee, after a year's ob- 
servation, are well pleased with it. They believe it 
is a highly economical plan and are prepared to dem- 
onstrate that to anyone who questions them. 

Briefly, the scheme is this : 

The University employs an engineering and archi- 
tectural organization to prepare ail designs and sup- 
ervise the work, the head of this organization acting 
as the executive agent of the trustees' building com- 
mittee. His staff includes an architect, a draught- 
ing force, accountants, inspectors and sub-engineers, 
lie is responsible for the prompt and competent prose- 
cution of the whole job. 

The profit of the contractors is in the form of a 
stated fee. But they have to guarantee an estimate 
of the cost of each building. If this guaranteed esti- 
mate, after being approved by the supervising engi- 
neer, is exceeded, then the excess comes out of the 
contractors' profit. Tf the cost falls below the esti- 

mate — this has happened already, in the case of the 
buildings completed — the saving goes to the Univer- 

It is provided that, in the event the supervising 
engineer and the contractors cannot come to an agree- 
ment on an estimate of cost, the matter shall be arbi- 
trated. Thus far no resort to arbitration has been 
necessary, and none is expected. Altogether the con- 
tractors' first estimates have been scaled down several 
thousand dollars. Lower figures have been agreed to 
after discussions with the University's agent, and the 
results have shown that the revised estimates have 
covered the cost. 

The University's supervising agent is the T. ('. At- 
wood organization, with Thomas ('. Atwood at the 
head of it and Arthur C. Nash associated with him as 
architect. T. C. Thompson & Bros., of Charlotte, are 
the contractors. The consulting architects, to whom 
designs are submitted for final approval, are McKim, 
Mead and White of New York. The trustees' build- 
ing committee, the ultimate authority in the direction 
of the entire building project, are J. Bryan Grimes, 
chairman; John Sprunt Hill, Haywood Parker. 
George Stephens, James A. Gray, W. N. Everett, 
President II. W. Chase, Business Manager Charles T. 
Woollen, and W. C. Coker. 

University Owns Plant 

The plant — that is, all equipment used in the con- 
struction is bought by the University and belongs to 
the University. The present procedure is believed to 
be economical because the University has in prospect 
a six years' building program, in order to meet the 
pressure of rapidly increasing attendance, and a 
large part of the plant can be kept and used through 
the six years. 

The total overhead cost, including the services of 
consulting architects, supervising engineer and con- 
tractors, was placed by President Chase, in an address 
to the alumni commencement week, at between ten 
and eleven per cent of the entire outlay for new 
buildings. This is plainly a considerable saving as 
compared with the percentage that the architect and 
the profit that the contractor commonly receive under 
the lump-sum or cost-plus plan. In talking to the 
alumni, President Chase said : 

"Next year the University will be double its size 
for the three years just preceding the war — its high 
water mark to that time. There are no indications 
whatever that the growth is going to be checked. You 
need only recall how the high schools in your own 
communities are growing, how they are crowded, need- 
ing expansion, to realize that the sources of supply 
for the University are steadily increasing. 

' ' The material University is yet in its infancy. Our 
hands must not slacken, nor our spirit falter, until 
the task is done. 

"We are merely keeping abreast of our growth, 
and hardly that. Two years of building inactivity 
now would again submerge us under the rising tide." 

Railway Spur Has Saved Much 

One economy that has been the source of genuine 
satisfaction to the University authorities is the rail- 
way spur, about a mile and a quarter long from ( larr- 
boro station to the campus. The highway from Carr- 
boro to Chapel Hill is of dirt and would soon have 
been put in bad condition by the haiiling of large 
quantities of materials. Indeed it might have be- 



come, in rainy weather impassable for heavy trucks. 
To avoid this difficulty, it was decided to build the 
spur so that freight cars could be brought to within a 
few feet of the building operations. 

The record of transportation charges compared 
with what they would have been if materials had been 
brought by trucks from Carrboro, shows that the en- 
tire cost of the spur will be saved before the pro- 
jected six-year program is completed — and the spur 
will remain for future use. This saving will be scored 
on construction work alone. It amounts to far more 
when the current business of the University is con- 
sidered. The institution gets in between 3,000 and 
4,000 tons of coal a year, and the very least for which 
it could be hauled from Carrboro to the bins at 
the power house is $1 a ton. On this one commodity, 
therefore, there is a saving of more than enough 
annually to pay the interest on the cost of the spur. 

Memorial Hall Made Serviceable 

Among the undertakings of lesser moment, in terms 
of cost, has been the conversion of Memorial Hall into 
a satisfactory auditorium at a cost of about $15,000. 
A felt covering applied to the ceiling has given the 
hall good acoustic properties, and heating and light- 
ing systems have been installed. One of the prime 
needs of the University for several years has been a 
building suitable for large gatherings, and now that 
need is met. To have built a new auditorium would 
have cost from $150,000 to $200,000. 

The University has put up 14 dwelling houses with- 
in the last year, eight for faculty and six for em- 
ployees. It has increased its fire protection, extended 
its heating system and its water and sewer lines, and 
added to its power plant. It has completed a new 
class athletic held to take the place of the one pre- 
empted for the new dormitories. All these lesser 
operations are included in the big general improve- 
ment — what is known as the six-year program. The 
funds voted thus far provide for two years of build- 
ing. The two years will end next summer, but the 
construction will all have been finished before then.

By Fielding H. Yost 

(Reprinted from The Michigan Alumnus) 
Fielding H. Yost is one of the most celebrated foot- 
ball coaches in the country. The views which he here 
sets forth are the fruit of an experience which, for 
■variety and. length, is probably not excelled by the 
experience of any member of his profession. — Editors. 

Professionalism in collegiate athletics presents a 
problem which has occupied the attention of coaches 
and athletic directors for years. Recently, and more 
especially during the reorganization of athletics after 
the war, the problem has taken on greater magnitude 
and larger significance because of the rapidly increas- 
ing general interest in athletics and because of the 
very keen competition that has developed. The prob- 
lem has grown to be of very vital importance not only 
to athletics, as such, but to the entire school system. 
It is no longer a matter about which only coaches 
and athletic directors are concerned. University 
presidents, university faculties, and even laymen are 
very actively concerning themselves about it. The 
public press is filled with arguments for and against 
permitting college athletes to use their athletic skill 
for gain, and the problem is often the topic of dis- 
cussion wherever followers of athletics come together. 

A Conference on Professionalism 

Agitation came to a head in Western Conference 
circles when a conference of the presidents of the sev- 
eral universities was called, following a preliminary 
conference of the athletic directors and coaches. It 
was agreed that the time for evading the issue had 
passed. The purpose of the meetings was to face the 
problem squarely and to solve it one waj r or another. 
If the rules were right they should be rigorousry en- 
forced. If they were wrong they should be changed. 

All the arguments for and against a compromise 
with professionalism were reviewed and discussed, 
with the result that presidents, athletic directors, and 
coaches agreed that such a compromise would be dis- 
astrous to the continued success of collegiate athletics. 

It was resolved by the presidents of the Western 
Conference universities that "The Conference main- 
tain the amateur rule and continue its efforts with re- 
newed vigor to reduce and eventually eliminate even 
a suspicion of professionalism from college and uni- 
versity athletics." 

This action by the presidents was followed by the 
faculty representatives of the several universities, 
who amended their rules of eligibility in such manner 
as to make ineligible for Conference competition any 
student who engages in any athletic contest as a rep- 
resentative of an athletic organization not connected 
with the university. The only exceptions are that 
"Occasional games during vacation on teams not pro- 
fessional or semi-professional and having no perma- 
nent organizations are not prohibited, provided no ad- 
mission is charged," and that participation in regular 
A. A. U. or similar track meets shall not be consid- 
ered in violation of the rule if the student enters 

Athletic Directors Stand Firmly 

The action did not stop here. The athletic direc- 
tors from the several universities were of the firm 

conviction that athletics could not long continue as 
the vital force that they now are in the training of 
college men if professionalism were tolerated. A com- 
mittee was appointed to work out the most effective 
means of enforcing the rules of eligibility and all 
agreed to cooperate in the furtherance of the prin- 
ciples of strict amateurism in all collegiate athletics. 

Furthermore, the National Collegiate Athletic Asso- 
ciation, composed of 150 of the more prominent col- 
leges and universities of America and including each 
of the Western Conference universities, recently legis- 
lated that ' ' Each institution that is a member of this 
association agrees to enact and to enforce such meas- 
ures as may be necessary to prevent violations of the 
principles of amateur sport." 

It is apparent that the officials of the universities 
of the Western Conference are in earnest. 

On its face such drastic action as was taken by the 
Conference officials might appear to be a bit unrea- 
sonable. But what are the facts? Nearly all those 
who favor a compromise with professionalism do so 
on the grounds that a student should not be denied 
the right to play baseball during the summer months 
for money, if by so doing he might be enabled to con- 
tinue his education. The argument advanced is that 
most of those who do this are amateurs in spirit and 
are only temporarily using their athletic skill for gain. 
At first, this seems to be a rather reasonable argu- 
ment, but if thought through the question is not so 
simple as it appears. 

One sport cannot for long be differentiated from 
the others, nor can one season. The mere fact that 
the immediate problem is centered around baseball 
during the summer does not mean that the tendency 
would stop there. Once given official sanction, and 
professionalism would spread rapidly to all branches 
of sport in all seasons. It would be no more than 
just that it should. If the baseball man is permitted 
to use his athletic skill for gain, certainly the same 
privilege must be granted to the student whose ath- 
letic ability happens to be in football, track, basket- 
ball, wrestling, boxing, tennis, golf, or anything else. 

The Real Problem 

If all forms of athletics are to be considered on the 
same basis, as they must if we are fair and just, then 
the question takes on greater significance. The prob- 
lem is not merely a question of whether or not college 
athletes are to be permitted to play baseball for money 
during the summer. Much more is at stake. Fol- 
lowed to its logical conclusion, the answer to this 
question will determine the whole nature of collegiate 
athletics in the future. Answer it in one way, and it 
is only a matter of time before our college teams 
would be composed of a more or less isolated group 
of professional athletes. Answer the question in the 
other way, and we will continue to have high class 
amateur athletics which will be an important part of 
every student's life and an activity in which every 
student will have an equal opportunity with each 
other student of taking part. The question is, 
"Which of these two situations do we want?" 

What would be some of the results if the question 
were answered in favor of permitting college athletes 
to sell their skill? 



In the first place, the college team would be com- 
posed almost entirely of professionals. The ordinary 
student could not hope to compete against the pro- 
fessional with his great advantage in practice and 
training. All incentive to the great mass of students 
to try for the team would be lost. A comparatively 
few would be set aside by themselves as "the ath- 
letes." They would be trained and developed at the 
expense of the University under coaches paid by the 
University, to be turned over at the close of their 
college career to the managers of the professional 
teams. Athletic contests would become mere spec- 

If One Sells Athletic Ability 

If the right to sell one's athletic skill for gain 
were legalized it would become the duty of every 
coach to secure for each of his players a good position 
during vacation where he could become more pro- 
ficient in the game and a greater asset to his college 
team. College athletic associations would become 
"feeders" for the regular professional organizations 
and athletic directors would Serve as agents for the 
professional managers. 

It is easily possible that under this system there 
might be a more perfect technical exhibition, but. 
after all, is it the end of athletics to afford only a 
technically perfect exhibition? In reality athletics 
have a much more important function to perform in 
our colleges. If we are to measure their success it 
must be measured by the degree to which they per- 
form this function. Fundamentally, the underlying 
aims of college athletics are these three : To develop 
and maintain the physical health of all the students; 
to promote recreation through self-expression, and a 
wholesome spirit of competition and rivalry; to form 
habits and inculcate ideals of right living. 

To attain these ends the programmes of athletics in 
our colleges should be such as to make participation 
as nearly universal as possible. "Athletics for all" 
should be the aim. Each student should have an 
equal right and opportunity with every other student 

to participate. It lias already been pointed out bow 
professionalism in college athletics would work against 
this principle. 

Its Relationship to Intramural Sport 

To be sure, only a comparatively small number 
actually participate in intercollegiate athletics even 
under strict amateur rules. However, the possibility 
is always open to any one to try for the team and 
the probability of his making it is sufficiently great 
to make the effort worth while. The comparative ease 
with which one can make the step from the class, and 
other intramural and minor teams, to the varsity 
fosters, to a considerable extent the interest and en- 
thusiasm in these minor games. In each of four of 
the Western Conference universities there were over 
4000 men students who engaged in some form of in- 
tramural athletics during the school year 1920-21. 
To some extent, at least, all these profited by the re- 
creation and physical exercise of these games, together 
with the attendant benefits of acquiring habits and 
ideals of right living. To say that these benefits 
would have been as great or would have accrued to 
anywhere near as many had there not been the in- 
centive and support of amateur intercollegiate ath- 
letics would be to deny an obvious fact. 

Furthermore, the influence of athletic profession- 
alism is, in itself, detrimental to a college man. It 
tends to make him dissatisfied to play the name for 
its own sake and makes of his athletic powers a mark- 
etable commodity rather than a means of recreation 
and self-expression. The game is robbed of the ex- 
hilarating inspiration of achievement merely for 
achievement s sake, and many of the very important 
character-building qualities which form a part of 
collegiate athletics are lost the moment the incentive 
of personal gain is introduced. The ideas of gen- 
erous service, loyalty, sacrifice, and whole-hearted 
devotion to a cause are all taken away. 

The Real Point 

And is it not a very questionable benefit to a young 

Tiif. Language Building Now Under Construction 



college man to make it possible for him to receive 
large fees and salaries for short terms and compara- 
tively easy work? Does this not tend to minimize 
some of the more desirable qualities of industry, hard 
work, and continued application to a difficult task? 
The athlete would become unwilling to put in the 
hard, tedious work at a small compensation that is 
usually a necessary part of one's preparation for the 
greater successes of life. The comparative ease with 
which an athlete could get money would foster habits 
of idleness and the desire to "get something for 
nothing," which would make it difficult for him to 
undergo the discipline and hard work of ordinary 
business when he had finished his athletic career. 

Colleges exist for the purpose of preparing our 
youth for life. Most educators agree that this should 
include not only intellectual preparation but physical 
and moral as well. The university should be, and is, 
as much concerned with the cultivation of high de- 
sires as with the training of high intelligence. In 
this field, as well as in the purely physical, athletics 
play an important part in the work of the college. In 
addition to securing harmonious bodily development, 
a well-planned and well-organized system of athletics 
teaches better and more effectively than any other 
part of the university's programme many of the very 
important social and moral qualities without which 
much of the intellectual development would be in 

The sacrifice of self to a group or institution for 
the attainment of a common goal is the first lesson 
taught by athletics. This means cooperation, team 
play, loyalty and service. The qualities of determi- 
nation, will power, persistence, and courage, both 
physical and moral, can nowhere be better learned 
than on the athletic field. Self-confidence, reliability, 
friendliness, leadership, mental and moral poise, re- 
sourcefulness, decision, — these qualities and mauy 
more are brought out in marked degree by athletics. 
Furthermore, the ability to summon all of one 's forces, 
physical, mental, and moral, to work together in 
smooth coordination for the accomplishment of a 
given task, and the initiative necessary to direct these 
forces, are attributes very strikingly developed by 
athletics. In reality, the athletic field proves the final 
analysis of character where a boy succeeds or fails 
because of what he really is. 

Realization of these truths and of the detrimental 
influences that would come in and detract from their 
usefulness if professionalism were sanctioned caused 
the officials of the Western Conference universities to 
answer the question of summer baseball in favor of 
strict rules of eligibility and a programme of rigorous 

Rules for the Many, Not the Few 

It is readily granted that some very worthy and 
needy men may be compelled by these rules to give 
up their eligibility and take money instead of col- 
lege glory. This is regrettable, but unavoidable. The 
rules must be made for the many and not for the 
few. It must be remembered that participation on 
college teams is a privilege rather than a right. Ex- 
cellent facilities, high-class coaching and all the at- 
mosphere of the big university games are provided 
for the college athlete freely and gladly by the school. 
The student must choose between these advantages and 
the financial gain of playing outside. It is merely a 
question of which the student most desires — those 

things which go with college and amateur athletics or 
those things which go with outside and professional 
athletics. He may choose either, but not both. They 
do not mix. 

The eligibility rules as they now stand are enforce- 
able and every athletic director in the Western Con- 
ference has pledged himself to do his utmost to en- 
force them. This will not, however, be an easy task. 
The students and alumni of the various universities

Prophecies as to football are as dangerous as other 
sorts of prophecy, and The Review dislikes to arouse 
hopes that may be dashed. Yet it is the simple truth 
to say that the prospects for a successful team this 
year are unusually good. 

Coach Fetzer has eleven "letter men" of 1921 back : 
Pritchard (captain), Blount, Poindexter, Cochran, 
Roy Morris, Shepard, Fred Morris, Johnston, Mc- 
Donald, Tenney, McGee. Abernethy was not a letter 
man in 1921 but was on the varsity before that. 

There are a number of promising candidates from 
last year's freshman team. Among these are George 
Sparrow, who was captain of the freshmen ; Blanton, 
Thomas, George, and Hawfield. 

Jack Merritt, who was on the Chapel Hill school 
team in 1920, is out for a place. Another newcomer 
is Randolph, who played at Asheville and in the 
army. Bonner, the outfielder of last spring, is mak- 
ing a try at football. 

From last year's squad there are Matthews, Ed- 
wards, Farrell, Sykes, Miller, Whedbee, Giersch, and 

The opening game of the season with Wake Forest 
in Goldsboro on September 30 resulted in a victory 
for Carolina by the score of 62 to 3. The game with 
Yale at New Haven on October 6 will have been 
played before this issue of The Review reaches its 

Trinity will be met at Chapel Hill University Day. 
October 12. Then follow South Carolina at Chapel 
Hill October 14, N. C. State at Raleigh October 19. 
Maryland at Chapel Hill October 28, Tulane at New 
Orleans November 4, V. M. I. at Richmond November 
1], Davidson at Charlotte November 18, and Virginia 
at Charlottesville Thanksgiving Day, November 30. 

This will be Carolina's first football match with 
Trinity since about thirty years ago, when the old 
"flying wedge" was in vogue. Those were the days 
of "Pete" Murphy, "Mike" Hoke, "Judge" Little, 
Baskerville, Barnard, Pugh, Biggs and others whose 
names have become famous in Carolina athletic 

The game in Goldsboro was a departure. The Uni- 
versity had not played in the eastern part of thr 
State before, and the alumni there made an urgenl 
demand that their section be neglected no longer.

Judge Henry Groves Connor, of the eastern district 
of North Carolina, will, according to announcement 
made following the meeting of the Executive Com- 

Judge Henry Groves Connor 

mittee of the Trustees on August 29th, become a lec- 
turer in the Law School of the University at some 
date during the fall term. Although formal an- 
nouncement of Judge Connor's acceptance has not 
been made, it is understood that he will accept and 
assume his new duties at an early date, either retiring 
from the Federal bench under the judges' retirement 
act, which is his privilege, or calling for the appoint- 
ment of an associate. 

Judge Connor will fill the newly created Ruffin 
lectureship, devoting his time not to the mere prepa- 
ration of law students for the Supreme Court exami- 
nation but to a consideration of law as a force in 
human progress. Judge Connor is expected to bring 
to the students of the University the advantage of a 
ripe intellect, and an interpretation of law by one of 
seasoned experience, ready sympathy and a concep- 
tion of law as something more than a codification of 
statutes to curb human wrong-doing. 

Judge Connor, who was reared and educated at 
Wilson, was in active practice of law from 187:! to 
1885, and from 1893 to 1903. More than half of his 
professional career has been spent on the bench. In 
1885 he represented his district in the State Senate 
and in 1899 and 1901 he served his county in the 
House of Representatives, having been Speaker of the 
House in his first term. 

He received his first appointment to the Superior 
Court bench of the State in 1885 and served until 
1893, when he resigned to return to private practice. 
In 1902 he was elected Associate Justice of the North 
Carolina Supreme Court. From this office, although 
a Democrat, he was appointed to the Federal judge 
ship for the district of eastern North Carolina by 
President William Howard Taft, on June 1, 1909. 
In July, 1922 he reached the age of voluntary retire- 
ment entitling him to full pay. 

Judge Connor holds the degree of LL.D. conferred 
on him by the University of North Carolina in 1908. 


The Board of Trustees at Commencement voted to 
expand the present two-year Medical School of the 
University to a full four-year school, so soon as funds 
became available ; and expressed itself in favor of 
loeating at Chapel Hill the teaching hospital which 
will be the center of the work of the school. At the 
same time it was voted to ask a committee of seven, 
consisting of four trustees, the president of the Uni- 
versity, the dean of the Medical School, and one mem- 
ber of the Medical School faculty to make a thorough 
study of the matter and report back to the Board in 
the fall. The committee consists of Trustees De- 
Laney, Everett, Grier, and Pharr ; President Chase, 
Dean Manning and Dr. MacNider. It has already 
held two meetings, has assembled much information 
from other institutions, is arranging conferences with 
experts in the field of medical education, has asked 
the president of the North Carolina Medical Society. 
Dr. Long, of Greensboro, to appoint a committee "I 
physicians to advise with it, a request which has led 
to the appointment of thirty representative physicians, 
headed by Dii I. W. Faison, of Charlotte, as chair 
man. The committee plans to visit soon a number 
of institutions which maintain modern medical 

The committee is assembling a full array of facts 
bearing on the question of location, inasmuch as it 
must either be in a position to support intelligently 
before the State, the Legislature, and the medical pro- 
fession the trustees' resolution in the matter, or 1" 
ask the trustees for reconsideration in case it is con- 
vinced that Chapel Hill is not a proper site. 

The committee representing the North Carolina 
Medical Society is as follows: Drs. I. W. Faison. 
Charlotte, chairman; J. T. J. Battle, Greensboro; J. 
H. Shuford, Hickory; C. M. Van Poole, Salisbury; 
E. J. Dickinson, Wilson; L. B. McBrayer, Sani-

Many North Carolinians familiar with the early 
history of the State College for Women remember T. 
Gilbert Pearson ( '99) as a member of the first faculty 
of the institution. They also remember his great in- 
terest in bird life and his activity in the formation 
of the North Carolina Audubon Society. He went to 
New York to accept a position with the National Au- 
dubon Society and he has been the force behind that 
organization for years. He has just been made chair- 
man of an international committee to protect bird 
life. He loves his work and has gone to the top in it.

ery, principally because of their inexperience in writ- 
ing and their inability to speak correctly and fluently. 
After struggling unsuccessfully for three or four 
months in the effort to improve their English, he hit 
upon the idea of having the students approach the 
subject through the more common, practical means of 
expression — just plain connected, informal talk. They 
were asked to tell the plots of stories, novels, moving 
pictures ; to give the substance of magazine articles 
dealing with subjects they were interested in; to ex- 
plain how to select seed corn, how to dip cattle, how 
to weld iron, and so on. All the while there was an 
attempt to interrelate and interwork oral and written 
speech. The students soon discovered their rapid 
improvement in oral expression ; they took an interest 
in their written work. Such was the beginning of the 
informal oral composition discussed in this text." 

Seemingly, the text is admirably planned, and 
should prove of distinct value in the teaching of 
correct English. 

Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, Kenan Professor of English 
and Dean of the Graduate School, is the editor of 
Literature and Life, book one, published during the 
summer by Scott, Poresman and Co., of Chicago. 
This volume, issued in an edition of 25,000 copies, is, 
to quote from the preface, "the first in a series of 
four books that provide material for an organized 
course in literature for secondary schools. In this 
series literature is regarded not as an end in itself, a 
subject in which facts are to be collected and memo- 
rized, but as an instrument through which the pupil 
may be initiated into the spiritual heritage stored up 
for him in books. 

"The first requirement to such an initiation is an 
abundant supply of carefully chosen selections from 
the best writers of all time. In the present volume, 
for example, the range in time is from Homer to the 
present. Of the fifty or more authors represented, 
one half are masters of former times whose works 
have become classics; the other half are recent or 
contemporary writers who are recognized interpreters 
of our own time. 

"A glance at the Table of Contents, however, will 
show that the editors have not regarded it as their 
task merely to supply a large amount of carefully 
chosen and graded material in rich variety and of 
recognized excellence. They have kept in mind the 
purpose set down in the opening paragraph of this 
Preface: the initiation of the child into the spiritual 
heritage stored up for him in books." 

The volume is of large octavo size, is splendidly 
printed and illustrated, and is sold for $1.80. Dr. 
Greenlaw is now at work on the remaining volumes. 

G. P. Wilson, '13, instructor in English in the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin, is the author of a book just is- 
sued by the Palmer Company of Boston, entitled 
Informal < )ral Composition. Mr. Wilson accounts for 
the presence of the book as follows : 

"During the year 1913-14 the writer had the diffi- 
cult task of attempting to instruct freshmen of a 
technical college in the theory and practice of written 
composition. They disliked the theoretical side (if 
the subject and looked upon written work as a drudg- 

Public Education in the South, dedicated ' ' To the 
memory of Edward Kidder Graham, gentleman, 
scholar, friend, inspiring teacher of youth, brilliant 
leader of men, exponent and interpreter of the 
South 's best tradition, ' ' is the title of a 482-page book 
by Dr. Edgar W. Knight, professor of Education in 
the School of Education. The volume, published by 
Ginn and Company, of Boston and New York, is the 
outgrowth of Dr. Knight 's study of educational prob- 
lems, particularly those ol the South, in his courses 
here and at Trinity College, and attempts to give the 
first general survey of the growth of public educa- 
tional organization and practices in the eleven states 
which formed the Confederacy. Another purpose 
which Dr. Knight has had in mind in the preparation 
of the book has been to make accessible to the student 
and the teacher certain valuable but scattered and 
more or less inaccessible materials on the educational 
history of the Southern States. 

The University of North Carolina is — save the 
mark ! — an octopus. There is no better definition 
which will suggest the completeness with which this 
institution is assuming charge of the intellectual 
thought and purpose of this State. 

For its tentacles are stretched out over North Caro- 
lina, touching the life in every hamlet, village and 
city. It is drawing to itself the best that this State 
has to offer in the way of scholarly ambitions of its 
aspiring youth. 

But it is a benevolent octopus. What it takes, it 
returns manyfold. It touches communities not to 
blight but to bless, its ambition is to liberate rather 
than enslave the minds of men. The power which it 
seeks is the power to serve the State. 

No institution in North Carolina deserves so well 
of the people. No institution possesses such infinite 
possibilities for enriching the life of the State and 
for keeping the feet of our citizens forever planted 
in the paths of progress. — Asheville Times. 

Edwin Bjorkman's latest book, The Soul of a Child.

man, and married him.

— ' ' It was worth coming to Williamston 
to see my old teacher, Elder Sylvester 
Hassell, now eighty years old, as straight 
as when he was forty, with eye not dim- 
med and strength unabated. Though now 
eighty years of age, Mr. Hassell reads 
fine print without glasses as readily as 
when he was a student at the University 
of North Carolina about the time of the 
beginning of the War Between the States. 
Indeed, he can probably read better. 
Upon graduation he volunteered in the 
Confederate Army and was rejected on 
physical grounds. So anxious was he to 
serve that he was examined by five 
physicians, none of whom would certify 
him as physically fit. And yet now at 
the age of eighty, Mr. Hassell lias con- 
founded all the doctors and has lived to 
see them all pass away. ' ' — Josephus 
Daniels, in the Raleigh News and Ob-

Williamston celebration. It had been 
given out that Col. Harry Stubbs was to 
deliver an address of welcome and the 
response was to be made by Judge 
Francis 1). Winston. That bill of fare 
attracted many, for as different as any 
two men can be, the opportunity to hear 
both was embraced. The people did hear 
Judge Winston, the inimitable, who was 
at his best, but Col. Stubbs did not de- 
liver the address of welcome. Perhaps 
he thought the personal word of wel- 
iiiiiio to friends and the spirit of hos- 
pitality by the whole people was better 
than any set address. Ever since I was 
a boy in school with him I wondered at

Where Go To College? 

There are three major considerations that 
determine the greatness, or the potential 
greatness of an educational institution. 
These are : 

1. The plant, including grounds, library, 
classrooms, laboratories, and apparatus; 
2. The faculty ; 3. The student body and 
its democratic standards. 

In addition to the twenty-seven build- 
ings already on the campus of the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, the State of North 
Carolina is this year putting $1,490,000 
into new buildings and equipment. The 
library of 108,000 volumes is spending 

$24,000 annually for books and periodicals. 
Eight thousand volumes were received in 
1921, and 1,005 magazines and learned 
journals were received on subscription. 

The faculty numbers 115 of the country's 
best scholars. 

Speaking of the student body of the 
University, Mr. Sherwood Eddy, of Yale 
University, who has spent the major por- 
tion (it his life studying in four continents, 
said that, with line exception, it was the 
most seriously thoughtful and democratic 
group of students he had ever known.
