National Recognition Given the University 

Two years ago the State took a long step toward 
developing its University into an institution which 
would stand on a par with the best state universities 
in the country. A most extraordinary testimony has 
just been given to the fact that there was no over- 
estimation of the ability of the University to meas- 
ure up to the trust reposed in it. This is the ad- 
mission of the University to the "blue-ribbon" class 
of American institutions — the Association of Ameri- 
can Universities. (Inly twenty-five of the five hun- 
dred and eighty-six institutions of higher learning 
listed in the United States arc included in this group 
of institutions of high standards and outstanding 
quality. The list includes Harvard. Yale. Columbia, 
Chicago, Princeton, Johns Hopkins, and such great 
state universities as Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, and 
Illinois; institutions for the most part much larger 
and wealthier than the University of Xorth Carolina. 
Only one other institution in the entire South is a 
member, the University of Virginia. Virginia, too, 
was a charter member, so that the University of 
North Carolina is the only Southern institution ever 
admitted in the twenty years during which the or- 
ganization has been in existence. 

The work of the University thus receives a definite 
national recognition of which her alumni may well 
he proud. The University in short, is on the national 
map: it is giving to Xorth Carolina boys opportuni- 
ties of a character that, in the judgment of the best 
educational institutions in America, are distinctive 
and outstanding. Surely better proof cannot be 
asked that the faculty of the University is of unusual 
strength, and that it is on the job. 

□ □□ 
The University Receives $50,000 

By the terms of the will of Mr. Robert K. Smith, 
formerly of Caswell County, later of Durham, and 
for tin- past thirty years a resilient of New York 
City, the University has been left a bequest of $50,000 
to be used in such way as it deems best. 

The announcement of the bequest, following the 
death of .Mr. Smith on October 22. not only calls 
forth from The Review an expression of happiness 
that the University has been remembered in this very 
substantial way. but evokes several thoughts concern- 
ing the purpose of the bequesl ami the uses to which 
the University may put it. 

Xo indication was given in the will why Mr. Smith 
made the bequest or to what use he wished it to be 
devoted. Item Xo. 14 read simply: *'l give and be- 
queath the sum of fifty thousand dollars to the Uni- 
versity of Xorth Carolina, Located at Chapel Hill, N. 
C." But back of the bequest was. to quote a sentence 
from a letter received from one of the executors, the 
fact that "though Mr. Smith left Xorth Carolina over 

thirty years ago. he always maintained a strong in- 
terest in and affection for the State, its people, and 
institutions." That tells a story which is well worth 
the telling. Mr. Smith was not an alumnus of the 
University. It had no claim whatsoever on him. 
But he did take pride in his native State. His inter- 
est in it. as it applied itself to the task of building a 
permanent worth-while civilization, was abiding. 
And by contributing to the University, an institution 
distinguished for more than a century by signal serv- 
ice to the State, he saw a way by which he could be 
sure of furthering his State's welfare. 


It is an Investment in Youth 

Xo announcement has been made by the University 
as to what disposition it will make of the bequest. 
And properly so. The mere fact that the way in 
which it was to be used was not specified in the will 
places the University under the necessity of consider- 
ing most thoughtfully the most suitable use to which 
it can be put. Then, too. there has not been time for 
such consideration. Obviously, it is $50,000 to be in- 
vested in the youth of North Carolina: to be devoted 
to the enrichment of the lives of the graduates of the 
high schools of North Carolina who. in increasing 
numbers, are knocking at the doors of the higher in- 
stitutions of learning and seeking a way to a higher, 
finer intellectual and spiritual development. And 
accordingly, it is an investment that not only reflects 
credit upon the mind and heart of Mr. Smith, but 
should serve as an example which other North Caro- 
linians, alumni and non-alumni alike, should consider 
and follow. 


The Journal of Social Forces 

Among the titles of addresses on educational sub- 
jects delivered in academic circles during recent 
years, two which have seemed to The Review to savor 
of vitality in the present and hope for the future are 
The Function of the State University and The State 
University and the New South, being respectively 
the titles of the publications issued by the University 
containing the inaugural addresses of Presidents Gra- 
ham and ('base. Both titles strongly suggest activity 
and participation in the affairs of the day. and to a 
corresponding degree convey the idea thai the Uni- 
versity of Xorth Carolina, the institution whose func- 
tions and future were under consideration, will not 
be content unless it functions vitally in the life of to- 
day and will continue to do si, in the life of the 
I'm ure. 

Another title of like character, which, in itself, is 
unusually pleasing to Tin: Review, is that of The 
Journal of Social Forces, a publication added to the 
list of University journals in Xovember, whose ob- 



jective, as stated editorially, is "to make definite, 
concrete, and substantial contributions to present 
day critical problems of American democracy, and 
to make usable to the people important facts and dis- 
cussions of social life and progress. 

The first number of the Journal deals vitally with 
the social facts and forces of the State, the South, 
and the Nation, and. in addition to having received 
universal commendation for attractive form and 
typographical arrangement, has met with instant 
praise on the part of educators and social workers 
throughout the country. The Review finds the 
Journal in full accord with both the purpose and ac- 
complishment of the University, and wishes for it an 
increasingly effective cai*eer. 


They Achieve a New Success 

Recently the State press has had quite a good deal 
to say about the poor showing North Carolina makes 
in the reading and writing of books, and. seemingly. 
the case made out by the press is one in which no 
great pride can be taken. Tn fact, there is 710 com- 
fort to be found in it except for a few unmistakable 
evidences which establish the fact that in the past 
five or ten years the public has started in the right 

direction and is beginning to move with such s| d 

as will insure a real advance in the next decade. 

But in the publication of Carolina Folk-Plavs 
(New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1922. Pp. 
160. $1.75). a volume written by students of the Uni- 
versity in English 111. which has just come from the 
press. The Review finds something in which the Uni- 
versity can take pride and from which the State can 
derive hope for the days ahead. For The Playmak- 
ers, whether they revolutionize the reading and writ- 
ing habits of North Carolina or not. have at least 
achieved the distinction of doing a piece — several 
pieces, in fact — of creative, artistic work here on the 
campus that takes its place with creative work of 
high merit done out in the world at large. They have 
not only studied the history and theory of play- 
writing and gone through the tedium of class routine. 
That is a part of the game. But constrained by an 
artistic, creative stimulus to carry their work beyond 
the point where others usually stop, they have fol- 
lowed the gleam until it has led to real achievement. 
One swallow does not make a spring, but it is good 
to know that this particular campus is developing a 
group that, to borrow an idea from the News and 
Observer, does read and can write. 

□ □n 

Arrange a Christmas Meeting 

Anyone who is keeping in reasonably close touch 
with the University is necessarily aware of the many 
changes being wrought in its physical ecpiipment. 
Alumni who came to see the Grand Lodge of Masons 
lay the corner-stone of the new dormitory quadrangle 
in 1921 saw, when they returned for the Carolina- 
Trinity game. 468 students pouring onto Emerson 
Field from the four completed buildings, with a 
recitation building completed and two more under 

But even such alumni as came on both days have 
failed to note the corresponding advance the Uni- 
versity has made in its methods of work and particu- 

larly in its thinking about its task ; they regard the 
new University as merely an enlarged University of 
the sort they knew when they were on the campus — 
the same, only very much bigger. 

One of the tasks which The Review sets itself is to 
keep the alumni informed concerning these changes. 
But failing as it inevitably must in carrying out such 
a difficult undertaking, it makes the suggestion that 
every alumni association hold a joint meeting with 
returning students during the holidays, in order to 
get a first hand statement of the situation. What we 
are attempting to say, fellow alumni, is that (unless 
you are working a lot harder than we think you are 
to keep real tab on your Alma Mater) you need this 
sort of meeting to keep you in step with her. Caro- 
lina is a going concern. To continue such, she needs 
you fully informed as to her activities and purposes, 
and actively participating in them. 

The Christmas meeting, with the students fresh 
from the currents of campus life, furnishes you a fine 
means of thus keeping in step. 


Shall We Feature Homecoming Day? 

One of the questions considered by the class sec- 
retaries on October 11-12, was that of whether the 
University should regularly stage a homecoming day, 
with all that the day has come to mean to the 
American universities of today. 

The Review has had but little experience with 
such days. But from the editorial comment appear- 
ing in practically every alumni publication received 
by it. the impression is inescapable that Carolina is 
missing something by not arranging for such a day. 

Speaking of the day at Minnesota, the Alumni 
Weekly of that institution summarizes the situation 
thus : Homecoming is so natural an expression of the 
family spirit in a student-alumni group that one may 
wonder why it took so many years in crystallizing. 
Now that we have it. however, there is no one to deny 
that for the student it has become one of the two or 
three really brilliant spots on the yearly calendar, 
and for the graduate who has not grown hopelessly 
inflexible, an opportunity to renew his youth that 
simply must not be neglected. 


The Virginia Game 

With thousands of alumni who thronged the sta- 
dium at Charlottesville, with the remnant of students 
and villagers who sat breathless at the continuous re- 
port in Memorial Hall, with the hundreds of alumni 
and future students throughout the villages and cities 
of the State, who, in the late hours of Thanksgiving 
afternoon, kept vigil at the newspaper bulletin boards 
or listened in on the local "central," The Review 
found the final score, 10-7, altogether to its liking. It 
spelled victory in a splendidly fought contest, and 
wrote the final sentence in a page of football history 
that Carolina men will always find fair to look upon. 

Apart from the joy of winning, The Review finds 
joy in the spirit of the contest. Throughout the fray 
Virginia and Carolina lived up to the best of their 
traditions, and every play was marked by the finest 
sportsmanship. If the Tiger of France had seen the 
game fought to the finish as he did the Yale-Harvard 
game, it would have won from him the same spon- 



taneous commendation — fine — that the contest in the 
Yale bowl evoked, because it was that down to the final 

□ □ □ 
Coaching and Material 

The Review has already spoken of its pleasure in 
the coaching which, in large part, led to this victory 
and to the series of victories of the season. It has 
found it clean, intelligent, and constructive in the 
making of fine, gentlemanly character. It is the sort 
which has enabled thousands of alumni and students 
to watch the game from the stands, even when the 
score was running the wrong way, with the assurance 
that the team knew football and, given time, would 
win through to victory. It is the sort that commands 
respect win or lose, and that makes a permanent con- 
tribution to the campus or squad that is fortunate 
enough to secure and retain it. 

But The Review has not said what it thinks of the 
material out of which victory has been won. It has 
not said anything formerly, because it was not time 
to say anything. But the time has come, and the 
thing we wish to say is that the material out of which 
the present victorious team was built, is a honie-- 
grown, North Carolina product, seasoned through sev- 
eral high school football championship contests, and 
trained in the fundamentals of football to the degree 
that it is available for the freshman team the moment 
it reaches the campus. 

Time was, when this was not the case, and Carolina, 
limited in her ability to draw well trained material 
from beyond her borders, faced the necessity of devel- 
oping a team from raw material with the inevitable 
result that three out of every four of the contests 
with her rival resulted in defeat — a fact which the 
University committee on high school athletics recog- 
nized some ten years ago and acted upon. 

What the outcome of games in the future will be, 
remains, of course, to be seen. But be that as it may, 
material in abundance of the sort that made football 
history this year on this campus, as well as on the 
campuses of other colleges in the State, and which 
has made possible a finer type of football, can be con- 
fidently expected every year from now on from North 
Carolina high schools. 


The University of North Carolina Press has organ- 
ized and is ready to operate. 

For a long time the University has suffered from 
the fact that its achievements in the various fields of 
learning have not received the recognition they de- 
serve. Work done by its faculty has often had to be 
put forward in such a way thai the name of the in- 
stitution appeared not at all or with little prominence. 
The newly created Press will serve to identify the 
University with creditable performance within its 
walls or stimulated through its influence. 

Original research in Chapel Hill dales back to lin- 
early days of the University more than a century ago. 
In more recent years the Elisha Mitchell Journal, 
Studies in Philology, the Janus S/trunl Historical 
Publications and other journals published here have 
won a high place in the regard of scholars the world 
over. Henceforth they will be issued in the name of 

the University of North Carolina Press and will be 
advertised as a group by the Press. And the Press 
will publish, insofar as its resources will permit, the 
results of meritorious work done by the University's 
own faculty and by other scholars as well. 

Its first distinctive undertaking will be the inaugu- 
ration of a series of monographs. A request has been 
made that an appropriation for this be included in the 
University budget, and assurance is given that all, or 
at least a good part, of the amount asked for will be 
granted. Manuscripts suitable to be published as 
monographs may be submitted from any department 
and will be passed upon by the Board of Governors 
of the Press. 

The board is composed of President Chase, nine 
members of the faculty, and, from the trustees of the 
University, Alfred M. iScales, Leslie Weil, and Zeb V. 
Walser. Louis R. Wilson is director. 

The establishment of the Press does not involve the 
organization of a printing plant, but merely the per- 
fection of arrangements to publish such books and 
monographs as the Board of Governors shall accept 
for publication and the regular issuing of the Journal 
of the Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society, Studies in 
Philology, The James Sprunt Historical Publications, 
The High School Journal, The University Record, 
The Extension Bulletin, and The News Letter. In 
connection with the library, it will also have charge 
of the exchanges received from other institutions. 


Fifty-seven Carolina alumni will sit as members at 
the approaching session of the General Assembly of 
North Carolina. The number of alumni elected to

Fraternities Show Vitality 

Are the fraternities growing with a growing Uni- 
versity ? This is a question that might be asked by 
anyone, frat or non-frat. The answer to this question 
may be guessed from the accompanying table. The 
recollection of the writer is that the old ratio between 
fraternity men and non was one to ten. At present 
over 17 per cent of the entire student body belong to 
a fraternity, national or local. This per cent has 
sometimes been compared with that of institutions 
where freshmen are eligible. Omitting freshmen 
over 25 per cent of all students are members of fra- 
ternities. This growth has come about in two ways, 
increase in the fraternities, and larger chapters. 
Alumni of "fore de war" will notice new names 
among the list of national fraternities : Delta Sigma 
Phi. Sigma Phi Epsilon, Delta Tau Delta, Pi Kappa 
Phi, and Theta Chi. Two locals are now petitioning ; 
the Chi Pi for Phi Gamma Delta, and the Masonic 
Club for a Chapter of Acacia, the national collegiate 
Masonic fraternity. Seven chapters out of sixteen 
number twenty or more members. Back in '16 a 
chapter of thirteen was regarded as gigantic. 

The building program is shoving the fraternities 
off the campus to Columbia street and even to Rose- 
mary. Yet the general expansion of the University 
finds the fraternities even gaining ground :

Self-Help Men Keep Busy 

The self-help students always famed for their 
numerical strength and for their willingness to work 
are this year setting a new record for ingenuity. An 
"Automotive Laundry — $1.00 for Automobiles and 
$.7") for Fords"; so reads one ad. The following in- 
teresting items are to be found in a recent report of 
Secretary Comer of the Y : 

"Apple sale operated regularly in the Y lobby, by 
two self-help men from Hendersonville, selling North 
Carolina grown apples. These fellows have a large 
box, fixed on legs, about like the old country 'cow 
trough,' with a sign over it giving the price of the 
apples, and a cigar box tacked to the back-side of the 
box, with a slot in the top for the nickles and dimes. 
This box holds a bushel of apples, and is filled from 
one to three times a day. The apples are honest 
enough to sell themselves, are of special high grade, 
and go fast. 

' ' Candy making is carried on by one man, with 
two or more assistants, now for the second year. This 
man has made his way with this small machine, and 
is feeding the student body on a very wholesome 
brand of peanut candy. Simple equipment but doing 
good business and putting two or three sons of North 
Carolina through the University. 

"The butcher's trade is followed by a half-dozen 
men, and furnishes better butchering than a country 
town usually gets. The people of the town testify as 
to the satisfaction given by these men in saying that 
they would rather trade with the student clerks than 
any others. These boys are real meat-cutters, as well 
as choice salesmen. 

"The blacksmith shop doesn't even escape the help- 
ing hand of the Carolina self-help student. One 
husky youngster from Greenville is hammering at the 
anvil every afternoon, and most of the day on Satur- 
days, and shrinks at no job that comes along. Mend-

well as applying new shoes to the horse and mule 
population of lower Orange county. 

Who Keep the Kiddies? 

"The babies of Chapel Hill have never had so 
highly trained, intellectually, nurses as they are under 
the care of during these days. When the mother of 
one, two, three, four, five, or even six, feels the need 
of an outing, or a call to the duties of the Community 
Club, or some social activity, or a church meeting, a 
call to the Y self-help office brings safe, responsible 
hands to the care and entertainment of her little flock 
within very few minutes, and she is free to roam at 
will. At the same time a self-help student is making 
25c an hour, and doing little else than having a big 
time with the kiddies. Incidentally, the kiddies have 
a big time, for they immensely enjoy an afternoon's 
or evening's play with the student. If it is in the 
evening, of course the little fellows are asleep before 
the parents leave, and the student does little more 
than sit in the family living room and study till the 
return of the family. 

"House cleaning is also becoming a specialty, and 
we are led to believe that there are many 'girl I ess' 
families in the State of North Carolina, from the de- 
gree of skill with which these boys can do house clean- 
ing, dish-wa.shing and a dozen other things in the 
house and kitchen, that more naturally fall to the 
hands of the fairer sex. Not only floor polishers, but 
all in all house cleaners, until, in general, the pro- 
verbial 'servant problem' is fast disappearing before 
the onslaught of the Carolina self-help tribe. 

Barbers Go Bird-Hunting 

"The old-time barber shops of Chapel Hill are com- 
inir to have more and more time for bird-hunting, 
athletic and political gossip, etc., as the number of 
student barber chairs increases throughout the dormi- 



tories. The student simply installs a barber chair in 
his room, hangs the red-wkite-and-blue shingle in his 
window, and the trade starts his way. The work done 
by these fellows is high grade, being often more sat- 
isfactory than that done in the shops down town. 
One other attractive feature about the student barber 
business is that he charges only 25 cents for a hair- 
cut, while the shop in town gets 40 cents. There must 
be ten of these student barber chairs over the campus 
at the present time. 

"Chauffeurs are plentiful throughout the self-help 
ranks, and more and more we are getting calls to 
'Come out and drive me to Durham, etc' It is easy 
to get a safe, first-class chauffeur for any make of car 
in the Chapel Hill community — and as little as you 
think, that range is now all the way from the Ford 
to the Packard. 

"A boiler specialist, pipe fitter, and plumber of 
commercial skill is enrolled among us this year, with 
a complete kit of tools for the business, and is getting 
in enough time to make living easy while pursuing a 
University course. There are a few others who assist 
this Asheville boy from time to time. 

"A whole flock of painters is on hand doing all 
grades of painting from the barn fence to the best 
grade show-window signs. One or two house contract 
jobs have been done, and at the breaking of spring. 
we have an idea there will be several more houses in 
the town painted by the self-help students. 

"Of waiters and dishwashers there are now more 
than a hundred at Swain Hall and at the many board- 
ing halls in town. 

"We have one union-card carpenter among us. ami 
with him a host of lesser skilled wielders of the ham- 
mer over the head of nails. They build garages, ser- 
vant quarters, chicken coops, etc." 

I think they formerly said that the village of 
Chapel Hill grew up around the University to support 
its wants. We now have competition. — F. F. B., '16 


Editor, Alumni Review: 

Sir: In the report of the class secretaries confer- 
ence published in the November Review there is a 
section giving four conclusions reached by the sec- 
retaries, about class gifts. 1 think it is obvious that 
gifts ought to be encouraged. And sad experience in 
finance confirms me also in the conviction that a class 
ought not to tie itself to long-time financial obliga- 
tions. I agree that we ought to give then and there 
what we can as our graduation gift. But I take issue 
with the fourth proposition that a class should give 
some special thing, like a stone seat, for instance, 
rather than give a sum of money to the Alumni 
Loyalty Fund. 

The chief need of the University is an endowment, 
the principal of which shall never be spent, the in- 
come from which shall be used as administrative 
authorities see fit. The University is in a state of 
flux. What may seem a permanent fixture today, to- 
morrow may be abolished or absorbed in the growing 
University. A stone seat, a statue, a fountain may 
today fit in with the campus scheme, and tomorrow 
may be a serious embarrassment to the changing en- 
vironment. While, on the other hand, an income each 
year from a permanent endowment will forever be a 
present and available resource for any University 

Moreover, a survey of the several class gifts placed 
at Chapel Hill in the past will show that the majority 
of them are practically worthless. They cost money, 
they are today worthless, and the original principal 
put into them is dead. On the other hand, such gifts 
m money that have gone into the Alumni Loyalty 
Fund today total a principal of $15,000.00, the income 
from which is available for the needs of each year. To 
my mind the individual gifts represent a total loss, 
whereas the gifts to the general fund actually form a 
permanent resource. 

The University quite frankly depends upon the leg- 
islature for growth and maintenance; such general 
maintenance is the task of the whole citizenship of 
the State. But outside of this general support it has 
a right to demand special support from its alumni. 
They have received a special endowment of its spirit, 
and they owe in return special support above and 
beyond that of the taxpayer who is not an alumnus. 
This special support is illustrated in the Graham Me- 
morial Building, and in the proposed Inn. There are 
unnumbered fields of free expansion that the Uni- 
versity could realize if it had the resources of a free 
endowment. These fields are known only to the ad- 
ministrators of its daily life, or, if they are known 
to a particular class, require more money than any 
class can possibly raise as a gift. It seems to me, 
therefore, that the most generous act a class can per- 
form is to sink its own individuality into the larger 
individuality of the University by contributing its 
gift in money to be absorbed in a general endowment 
fund. It is certain that the gifts of '11, '07, '16, '05, 
'95, 'OS, 09 will be alive and active one hundred years 
from now in the Alumni Loyalty Fund. Whereas, 
the ' ' individual gifts ' ' of other classes are already an 
embarrassment to a changing campus. The class that 
would preserve its individuality by limiting its gift 
to some campus adjunct will certainly lose it; but the 
class that loses its individuality by merging it in the 
general fund will certainly save it as long as money 
draws interest. 

Sincerely yours, 

R. B. House, 16. 

Raleigh, N. C, Nov. 24. 


On November 1 the University received from Alfred 
W. Haywood, '04, of New York City, the following 
letter, concerning a bequest of $50,000 left the Uni- 
versity by Mr. Robert K. Smith of New York City. 
Dear Doctor Chase: 

Mr. Kobert K. Smith, formerly of Caswell County, North 
Carolina, but at the time of his death a resident of New York 
City, died on October 24th, 1922. Mr. Smith was a well known 
figure in the tobacco business and was for many years vice- 
president of the American Tobacco Company and later, and 
until his retirement, vice-president of P. Lorillard Company. 

Though Mr. Smith left North Carolina over thirty years ago, 
he always maintained a strong interest in and affection for 
the State, its people, and institutions. He included in his will 
a bequest to the University in the amount of $50,000. 

The will has not yet been probated but will be offered shortly. 
The executors are the Farmers ' Loan & Trust Company, of 
this city, Mr. Thomas S. Fuller (Law 1903), and myself. The 
estate is large and its administration will probably require 
some time. The assets are apparently sufficient to pay this 
bequest in full and if so, it will be paid as soon as possible, 
though a considerable time must necessarily elapse. 

With kindest regards, 

Sincerely yours, 

Alfred W. Haywood. 




The University of North Carolina has been elected 
to membership in the Association of American 

On the face of it, to persons outside of educational 
circles, the fact may not have much meaning. Actu- 
ally it means a great distinction for North Carolina, 
for this association is limited in its membership to 
those institutions in the country which measure up to 
the highest standards of scholarship. There are now 
two Southern institutions in the body, the Universities 
of North Carolina and Virginia. 

The association has only 23 members including 
Harvard. Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Chicago, Cor- 
nell, Johns Hopkins. Clark, and Leland Stanford. 
Only a few of the state universities, and those the 
largest in America, have been admitted. In aca- 
demic communities it is known that many applica- 
tions for admission are received at every meeting of 
the association's executive committee, but few are 

An advantage of membership is that not only in 
America, but in Europe as well, the degrees given 
by the University of North Carolina and all publica- 
tions that go out from it, acquire a new and higher 
prestige. When an American goes to one of the 
great universities of England, France and Germany, 
to pursue graduate studies, the acceptance of his cre- 
dentials is determined in considerable part by 
whether or not he comes from one of the member in- 
stitutions of the Association of American Universi- 

Membership is based upon, first, the record of re- 
search, and second, upon the standards maintained 
by professional schools. The standing of the faculty, 
as reflected in published work and distinguished 
services rendered, is taken into consideration. 

The high repute earned by the training given here 
in the schools of medicine and law has had not a 
little to do with the receipt of this present honor. 
The growth and achievements of the graduate school 
have been another factor. At the last meeting of the 
executive committee of the association, the committee 
scrutinized carefully the publications issued from 
Chapel Hill — The Elisha Mitchell Scientific Journal, 
Studies hi Philology, The Law Review, The Journal 
of Social Forces, The James Sprunt Historical Pub- 
lications, The High School Journal. Tl was this ex- 
amination, together with a special statement of the 
graduate school, that led to the election of the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina as a member. 

This statement presents for the first time, together. 
facts about original research in the University, about 
the University's journals devoted to the advance- 
ment of learning, and about the growth of the 
gradual e school. 

Tt was 1792, before the opening of the institution, 
that the first apparatus for experimental physics was 
purchased. The first book collection consisted of 174 
in 1797. In 1817 the University published a geo- 
logical survey of North Carolina, said to be the 
first report of the kind in the United States. Dr. 
Elisha .Mitchell, a professor here for many years, in 
the period before the civil war, published several 
text books in geology and mineralogy. 

The Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society was founded 
in 1883 and has issued its Journal ever since. The 
James Sprunt Historical Publications were founded 
in 1899 and Studies in Philology in 1906. Next came 
The High School Journal, and within the last six 
months The Latv Review and The Journal of Social 
Forces have appeared. Contributions to these publi- 
cations come not only from the faculty of the Uni- 
versity itself but, also from leaders, throughout 
America, in the several fields to which the publica- 
tions are devoted. Dean Greenlaw's statement cov- 
ers, too, 7'he News Letter, the other publications of 
the department of rural social science, and the 
numerous publications of the extension division. 

The number of graduate students in the Univer- 
sity in 1921-1922 was 166. In 1922-1923 it is 261. 
Of this total of 261, 83 are now in residence, the 
other 196 having taken graduate work in the summer 
school. Last year 62 members of the University's 
teaching staff gave courses solely for graduates or for 
seniors and graduates. The number of courses and 
half courses (each extending through one quarter) 
open to graduates and advanced undergraduates was 
233. The courses for graduates only numbered 163. 

The graduate students come from 11 states of the 
Union, from the District of Columbia, and from 
China. The states represented are North Carolina, 
Illinois, Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia, Geor- 
gia, Massachusetts, New York, Alabama, Ohio and 
West Virginia. Fifty universities and colleges have 
sent students to the graduate school here. In the last 
three years, the degree of master of arts has been 
conferred upon 75 candidates, master of science upon 
six, and doctor of philosophy upon five. 

The school of law dates back to 1843. It is a mem- 
ber of the Association of American Law Schools and 
publishes the quarterly Law Review. It has 5 teach- 
ers and 170 students. The school of medicine is 
graded Class A by the American Medical Association. 
In June, 1922, the trustees authorized the establish- 
ment of a four-year course in extension of the present 
two-year course. 

The school of pharmacy was founded in 1880. the 
school of education in 1913, the school of public wel- 
fare in 1920, the school of engineering in 1922. One 
stimulus to investigation has been the establishment 
of a special research fund of $1,000. In the twelve 
months ended with July of 1922, this money was ap- 
propriated in aid of 13 projects upon which members 
of the graduate faculty were working. It is the 
policy of the administrative board to vote the money 
in small amounts in order to assist as many workers 
as possible. 

An outcome of the activity in various fields of 
scholarship in the University has been the establish- 
ment of the University of North Carolina Press. Re- 
sides taking over the research journals now pub- 
lished, it will publish monographs embodying the re- 
sults of investigations conducted in the University 
laboratories and libraries. — L. G. 

M. F. Teague, '06, has just opened on Patton 
Avenue, in Asheville, a drug store that many people 
claim is the handsomest in the State. 




Special trains had been pulling into Charlottesville 
all during the night and morning. At two o'clock 
the grandstands and stadiums of Lambeth field were 
jammed and packed with people. At 2 :20 the Uni- 
versity of Virginia cheer leaders unlimbered and a 
Virginia cheer cracked across the field as the Old 
Dominion team raced out on the gridiron. A few 
minutes later every Tar Heel in Charlottesville was 
standing and cheering wildly as Carolina's "Wonder 
Team" trotted to the bench. The necessary formali- 
ties were gone through with and the ball was kicked to 
Carolina. The "Classic of the South" was on. 

The beautiful Virginia stand, built in a half circle 
and crowned at the top with a graceful row of Greek 
columns supporting a symmetrical red tile roof, was 
given over to the North Carolinians, and they were 
packed in tight. All kinds of them were there, from 
gray-haired mothers to bobbed-haired flappers, old 
gratis, students, and just lots and lots of them that 
never saw the University of North Carolina in their 
lives. The flashing of blue and white colors and the 
nodding of great white chrysanthemums added to the 
already colorful scene. The stands were drunk with 
people and colors. A fire over to the west of the field 
was smoking heavily and a blue haze hung over the 
gridiron as the two teams battled for the big end of 
the score. The Virginia cheering stands, seeming a 
great distance away through the smoke, were also 
drunk with colors — and with cheers, some rumbling 
and defiant, others stacatto and exultant. The Uni- 
versity of Virginia cheering section was one of the 
best ever seen and without a doubt one of the most 
gentlemanly. When McDonald was calling signals 
the slightest movement of the cheer leader's hand 
silenced them until they sounded like Pharaoh's tomb. 

Virginia Is Outplayed 

Carolina outplayed Virginia in every phase of the 
game and consequently won. Blount put a beautiful 
kick through the bars about four minutes after play 
began and in the third quarter McDonald tossed a 
long pass to "Red" Johnston and the Charlotte boy 
ambled through a mass of Virginia players for a 
touchdown. In the second quarter Maphis slipped 
through the line, and while another Virginia backfield 
man put McGee temporarily out of the play, darted 
over the Carolina line for a touchdown. It was all 
over in a minute. That ended the scoring. 

When the final whistle blew the ball was on Vir- 
ginia's five yard line and the crowd was on its feet. 
A few minutes later Lambeth field was deserted and 
the solemn old Virginia hills looked placidly down on 
the gridiron where twenty-two men had staged a 
miniature battle while ten thousand looked on, and 
the old hills must have known what had taken place. 

Students and Alumni Celebrate 

If those Virginia hills didn't know, had they been 
moved by some great faith down to the Gleason hotel 
that night, they would have found out. Old Carolina 
men, students, and everybody else were celebrating. 
The thrilling strains, always thrilling to a Tar Heel, of 
"Hark the Sound of Loyal Voices." followed by 
"I'm a Tar Heel Born" echoed and reechoed through 

the hostelry and on into the streets. When the alumni 
boys reached the "So it's Rah Rah Carolina Lina 
Rah Rah" their feet would beat time on the floor 
and the hotel shook with the rhythm of the song. It 
had never shaken so before, and the old sleepers under 
the floor must have trembled, and whispered to each 
other, "The Tar Heels are here, listen to their heels 
pounding above. Virginia has at last lost to them on 
her own field." How well the sleepers guessed. 

V. M. I. Defeated 

The Virginia game, won by a score of 10 to 7, the 
Davidson game, won by a score of 29 to 7, and the 
V. M. I. game, snatched away from the Old Dominion 
by the score of 9 to 7, have all become a matter of 
football history. It will often be told how Johnston 
grabbed the pass out of the air and scored against 
Virginia. The Davidson game may be referred to 
now and then in the years to come, but one of the 
brightest pages in Carolina athletic history was 
written in the last eight minutes of play in the V. M. 
I. game when the Tar Heels marched grimly and re- 
lentlessly through the fighting V. M. I. team for 94 
yards and a touchdown. Sparrow, for Carolina, had 
booted a beautiful drop kick over the bars earlier in 
the game. Carolina had been playing in V. M. I. 
territory most of the time and the game looked like 
it was won for the Tar Heels. The V. M. I. stands 
were watching the teams sway back and forth and up 
and down the field, hoping only for a break. It came. 
McDonald threw a pass and Ryder, with a big num- 
ber 13 on his back, grabbed it and raced down the field 
for a V. M. I. touchdown. The Virginia part of the 
crowd went wild with delight. 

The Carolina team went into position to receive the 
kickoff. Blount walked over and asked the time- 
keeper "How much time?" The timekeeper told him 
eight minutes. Blount signalled it to the team and 
the spectators felt a thrill run through not only the 
team, but the entire crowd. "Okey" Mitchell, of the 
Times-Dispatch, turned to the writer and said "Caro- 
lina will win yet." The ball was kicked and McDon- 
ald returned it twenty yards from his six yard line. 
Plays over the line netted a first down. Merritt. the 
Carolina hatterin<r ram, was battering. McDonald 
called a signal. The teams went, into action. "Red" 
Johnston was racing toward the V. M. I. coal with 
the ball hisrh in the air. It seemed impossible that 
he could catch it. Johnston did the seeminglv impos- 
sible thing. The pass netted 37 vards. Another pass 
to Sparrow nut the ball on V. M. I.'s eighteen yard 
line. The Carolina line charged forward on the next 
nlay. Merritt hit it for five yards. The Carolina 
line eharced again. Merritt hit it again. Five yards 
more. The crowd held its collective breath. The 
Carolina line charged again. Merritt hit it for four 
vards. Merritt fumbled. The crowd came very near 
losing its breath. Cochran, Carolina end, fell on the 
ball. The teams lined lm and without a sign of a 
signal the ball was snapped and McDonald carried it 
over the Virginia goal line. History, football historv. 
had been made. A few minutes later the game was 
over and the town was Carolina's. 



Splendid Season Ended 

The Carolina team lost to Yale, but won from Wake 
Forest, Trinity, South Carolina, State, Maryland, V. 
M. I. and Virginia. The record is the best made by 
a team since the famous " 92 " outfit. It makes Caro- 
lina South Atlantic champions with a good claim for 
Southern honors. No more need be said about the 

Three men are lost from the squad, Johnston, 
Cochran, and Pritchard. Pritchard had the honor of 
being captain of the 1922 team. Johnston is heralded 
as one of the greatest backs in the South, and Coch- 
ran has been All South Atlantic end for two seasons. 
All three were picked last season as All South Atlantic 
players. Of the three Johnston has been the most 
outstanding. He has Hashed in every game he has 
played in, and in his swan song game at Charlottes- 
ville he went out of the Carolina uniform in a blaze 
of glory. Pritchard and Cochran have been main- 
stays in the Carolina line for four years, and the 
coaches will have a hard time plugging up the hole 
they are leaving.

William A. Blount, of Washington, was elected cap- 
tain of the Varsity for 1923 following the game at 
Charlottesville on Thanksgiving. The choice has 
been widely acclaimed by Carolina men. Blount has 
played center for the past two years. Four years 
ago he also played center after which he taught for a 
year at Bingham School, Ashevillc. Be is one of the 
outstanding players on the squad and has repeatedly 
been mentioned as the best center in the South At- 
lantic section. Besides being a highly skilled player 
technically, he is regarded as a fine influence on the 
squad, cool and full of wisdom. 

All members of the present Varsity string will prob- 
ably return next fall except Red Johnston, Captain 
Pritchard and Cochran. These have played their full 
time. Charlie Nortleet, of Winston-Salem, will be 
manager next year, and Jimmy Poole, of Greensboro, 
assistant manager, which means that he will be man- 
ager two years from now. 


Carolina's basketball schedule for the coming win- 
ter has been practically completed. It closes with 
the big southern intercollegiate conference meet in 
Atlanta. This is the annual event in which Carolina 
distinguished herself last year by beating eveiy 
opponent and emerging champion of the conference. 

Morris ("Monk") McDonald is captain of the team. 

The schedule is as follows : 

December 16 — Durham Y. M. C. A. at Durham. 
January 9— Durham Y. M. C. A. at Chapel Hill. 
January 19 — Wake Forest at Chapel Hill.

An editorial department, in which the managing 
editor sets forth the purposes of the Journal, and a 
department entitled Library and Work Shop, devoted 
to reviews of books on sociological subjects, complete 
the number. 

Advance subscriptions for the Journal were re- 
ceived from every state in the Union, ranging from 
two in a few to more than 100 in North Carolina, 
with New York a close second. The Journal consists 
of a cover and 72 double column pages, and is un- 
usually distinctive in appearance and typographical 

Dr. A. S. Wheeler has just published two papers 
in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. 
The first, entitled Hydroxynaphthoquinone Studies 
V. Derivatives of 2-Bromo-5-hydroxy-l, 4-naptho- 
quinone (Monobromojuglone), appeared in the Oc- 
tober issue, the work being done with B. Naiman, 
candidate in 1922 for the degree of Master of Science. 
The other paper which appeared in the November 
issue is entitled "Para-Cymene Studies IV. The 
Chlorination of 2-Amino-p-cymene. This work was 
in collaboration with I. V. Giles, candidate in 1922 
for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. As indicated 
by the titles one is the fifth paper in the juglone field 
and the other is the fourth in the cymene field. In 
both papers new dyes are described, some of them 
being of particular beauty and brilliancy. 

The extension policy of the University of North 
Carolina is being vindicated at least as far as its foot- 
ball team is concerned. This year's team, the best in 
its history, is composed almost entirely of high school 
players who have been developed by the University 
activities in promoting high school athletics. Of the 
56 men on the squad only one comes from outside the 
State. Opposed to that is the announcement that 15 
states are represented on the Virginia squad this 
year, some of them coming from as far away as Wash- 
ington State. This has been one reason why Virginia 
so consistently defeated Carolina year after year. 
She had experienced high school athletes to start build- 
ing on a team. Carolina had to take green .youths, like 
Earl Thompson and Will Grier, who had never seen 
a football and try to whip them into a finished ma- 
chine. It is no wonder that Virginia walloped them. 
It's different now. North Carolina high schools are 
the equal of Virginia's famous preparatory schools, 
and good football material is being sent to Carolina. 
Other North Carolina colleges are profiting by this 
policy. Football at every college in the State is on a 
higher plane than it has ever been. All the smaller 
colleges had good teams this year, and a great deal 
of the credit belongs to the University's extension 
policy of developing athletic contests among North 
Carolina high schools. — The Gastonia Gazette. 

It is now Gen. Albert Cox. Under orders from 
Headquarters Eighty-first Division, Knoxville, Col- 
onel Cox is promoted by the President to Brigadier 
General in the Officers' Reserve Corps of the Army. 
In connection with the order comes the information 
that since the Organized Reserves was formed, Gen- 
eral Cox has been in command of the 316th Field 
Artillery of the Eighty-first Division, which has its 
headquarters in Knoxville. Tennessee. It is under- 
stood that he will be assigned to command the 156th 
Field Artillery Brigade, which is composed of a head- 
quarters battery from Tennessee, the 316th Fild Ar- 
tillery from North Carolina, the 317th Field Artillery 
from Tennessee and the 306th Ammunition Train. 



General Cox is a graduate of Horner Military 
Academy, of the University of North Carolina and of 
the Harvard Law School. He has practiced law in 
Raleigh for 15 years. He began his military career 
as a captain in the Third Infantry, North Carolina 
National Guard, serving with this regiment on the 
Mexican border during 1916. After the declaration 
of war with Germany he raised a regiment of artillery, 
the 113th, which he commanded during the entire 
World War. He served with distinction at St. Mihiel 
and during the Meuse-Argonne offensives and later 
commanded the brigade of which his regiment was a 

"North Carolina," says Major Sloan, of the Field 
Artillery, "can well be proud of such sons as Brig- 
adier General Cox," and so say all the people of the 
State. — The Charlotte Observer. 

Editor, Alumni Review: 

Sir: The celebration of the University's birthday, 
October 12th, has had as one object the gathering of 
the alumni at a homecoming festival, but this object 
has not met with much success. Not because the 
alumni aren't interested — the dozens of congratula- 
tory telegrams from all over the world prove that they 
are all thinking of Alma Mater on that day — but be- 
cause they cannot spare the time out of the middle of 
a busy week to go to Chapel Hill for a day. This 
year an unusual number attended, partly because of 
the football game with Trinity. It has occurred to 
some of us, however, that it would be doing small 
violence to the day and what it stands for if the 
celebration were placed on the Saturday nearest the 
12th, instead of on the 12th itself, and thus make it a 
week-end affair. Many alumni would come (if they 
had to miss only Saturday) to attend the exercises, 
perhaps spend Sunday with sons or daughters in the 
University, and incidentally see a good football game. 
When the 12th comes in the middle of the week it is 
too much to expect that the football season should be 
disarranged by putting a game on, say, a Wednesday, 
but it could always be arranged that an interesting 
game be played at Chapel Hill on the Saturday of the 
celebration. The exercises, too, woidd have a mini- 
mum interference with University work if held on 
Saturday, and the students would not leave the Hill 
if a football game were played in the afternoon. An 
alumni luncheon might also be arranged for that day, 
and meetings of alumni and other committees could 
be held on the preceding Friday evening. 

This suggestion may not be an important one Eor 
1923, as the 12th comes on Friday, but in 1924, being 
leap year, it jumps over Saturday to Sunday, and the 
celebration would have to be held on Saturday (or 
Monday) anyhow. 

Why should we not arrange at once for the future 
celebration of the day on the nearest Saturday, or 
the one most convenient for the purpose? 


Alumni Secretary D. L. Grant has spent the past 
several weeks in visiting many local alumni associ- 
ations both in North Carolina and in other states, 
with a view to assisting local officers in strengthening 
their organizations and with a view to the perfecting 
of definite plans for a large number of holiday meet- 

ings of alumni and students. Mr. Grant reports that 
indications are for a great many holiday banquets to 
be held this year. 

Speaking of the purposes underlying the holiday 
meetings, Mr. Grant said: "The alumni will gather 
because of the University tie that binds them together 
with a strong hold and assures a pleasant association 
wherever Carolina men assemble; they will meet to 
help foster the work of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation in building up the secretary's office; to learn 
more about the now rapidly growing University, and 
to acquaint themselves with the way the University is 
to project itself next ; to reaffirm their faith in the in- 
stitution that brought them a noble vision, and 
broader contact, and' a wider knowledge, and to place 
themselves definitely in line for her support ; to con- 
sider ways of helping the educational and civic life 
of their own communities ; to assist county clubs to 
carry out their programs of publishing county bulle- 
tins; to make possible the attendance at the Univer- 
sity of needy students who otherwise could not at- 
tend ; to acquaint themselves with each other and the 
students now at the University, and to allow these 
young men to become acquainted with the men already 
gone out from Chapel Hill — in brief, the alumni will 
meet for reasons as wide as the life of the men who 
compose our group. The causes for the gathering of 
University men are legion." 

The September number of the Journal of Industrial 
and Engineering Chemistry, the official journal of 
the American Chemical Society, with a circulation of 
many thousands and probably the most important 
journal of its class in the world, contains the follow- 
ing editorial announcement concerning D. H. Killifer, 
B. S. 1915: 

D. H. Killifer has been appointed associate editor 
to succeed R. T. Stokes. Mr. Killifer is a graduate 
of the University of North Carolina. After gradu- 
ation he became a member of the staff of the Brown 
Laboratories of Nashville and served in the depart- 
ment of tests of the Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. 
Louis Railway. Subsequently he was research chemist 
on plant development for the Calco Chemical Co., and 
since January 1920 has been a member of the edi- 
torial staff of Drug uuil Chemical Markets. 

The University Library received three important 
gifts during the third week in September. From 
Mrs. J. M. Bernhardt and G. F. Harper, of Lenoir, 
it received a bound volume of the Petersburg, Va., 
Express, May 1861 to May 1862, a number of import- 
ant pamphlets on the Confederacy, extensive files of 
the minutes of the Presbyterian Synod and the Con- 
cord Presbytery, and a number of books and pamph- 
lets relating to western North Carolina and Caldwell 
County. From Mr. B F. McDowell, of Charlotte, it 
received files of the Charlotte Observer, Oct. 1, 1875- 
June 15, 1877, and the Southern Home (Charlotte), 
Jan. 1879-June 1880. Mr. W. \V. Scott, of Washing- 
ton, D. C, who last year gave the Library the file of 
the Lenoir Topic, 1875-1898, supplied a volume of the 
Daily Evening 7'<>//iV..lS84, which was lacking from 
the original file. The Library also was the recipient 
of a number of publications from western North Caro- 
lina issued by the presses of Hackney and Moale and 
the Inland Printery, of Asheville.
