What the University Is Asking For 

For the third time in three consecutive months The 
Review has begun its first editorial note with the 
heading "What the University Is Asking For." 

To alumni who have kept track of the legislative 
situation in Raleigh, influenced as it has been by a 
succession of events unparalleled in the amount of ex- 
citement and confusion to which they have given rise, 
the reason for the repetition is obvious. It is to say 
again, quietly and earne.stly, what the University of 
North Carolina, which has served the State in the de- 
cades that have gone, is asking of the legislature in 
order that it may return it in service in good measure, 
pressed down and running over. It is to draw the 
attention of those in whose hands the policies of the 
State rest to the fact that the program of the higher 
educational and charitable institutions, of which the 
University is a part, is fundamentally sound, that it 
will meet a fundamental need, and that the State of 
North Carolina, whether it has a surplus or deficit of 
cash in pocket at this particular moment, is funda- 
mentally able to meet the need. It is to point out 
that while the overhauling of the auditing system of 
State finances is an extremely necessary thing, so that 
every penny, whether of surplus or deficit, may be 
exactly accounted for, it is infinitely more important 
that North Carolina shall go steadily forward in the 
training of its youth, for "there is that scattereth, 
and yet increaseth, and there is that withholdeth 
more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty."

Can We Compress a Genera- 
tion of Progress Into Four Years? 

The Review does not desire to participate in any 
of the controversies growing out of the situation at 
Raleigh. Being a monthly luiblieation it obviously 
could not if it desired. 

But there is one question which has been a-sked in 
reference to the request which the University, in 
common with the other institutions, has made of the 
legislature, which The Review wishes to consider, 
namely, "Can We Compress a Generation of Progress 
into Four Years?" 

If the State had not largely failed in the generation 
which has passed to do the things which would have 
secured its normal progress; if the State were not fi- 
nancially able to-day to take the step without jeopard- 
izing its financial future — not its present method of 
keeping books! — the answer would and should be no. 
But until two years ago, the State had not invested 
generously in the education of its youth, and if it does 
invest more generously in the present (luadreniiium 
than it has in the past, its financial future will not be 
wrecked, because it will be placing its money in the 
one thing — education — that yields the surest and 
largest returns. 

Short, But of Tremendous Import 

But what if the State fails to make the investment 
in the four years? 

Four years in the life of a state or a nation, obvi- 
ously, is a short period. But it is a period equal to 
that in which the destinies of the American Union 
were decided in 1861-6.5, and to that required by the 
Allies in preserving democracy to the world. And in 
the ease of the high school boys' and girls graduating 
this May and the next three Mays succeeding, some 
25,000 of them, it comprises the period in which they 
must secure their education or go without it. Failure 
on the part of the State, even for seemingly such a 
brief time, means for them abridgement of oppor- 
tunity at the most important moments of their lives.

Concerning the Graduate School 

One of the moments at Commencement in previous 
years which usually yielded amusement to faculty, 
students and visitors alike was that devoted to the 
reading of the titles of theses of the graduates. 

While the practice has recently been discontinued. 
The Review is reminded of it by the receipt from 
the Graduate School of a list of persons who have 
been admitted to candidacy by the School for higher 
degrees, together with the subjects which have been 
approved for graduate theses. The present list, how- 
ever, yields little amusement of the former sort. 
Hundred-syllabled, tongue-entangling captions in the 
field of Chemistry still appear, but in addition to 
them and the other more usual titles in literature 
and other subjects two facts emerge. The first of 
these is that four persons are candidates for the Ph.D. 
at Commencement, 42 for the A.M., and 7 for the S.M. 
—53 in all. The second is that in the fields of the 
social sciences and of history and government, sub- 
jects bearing upon North Carolina and the South are 
receiving attention as they never have before. Three 
of the investigations in the School of Commerce, for 
example, treat of the Cooperative Marketing of To- 
bacco, Cooperative Marketing of Cotton, and High- 
way Financing, all in relation to North Carolina. 
Similarly in the School of Education every one of the 
ten investigations is based on some definite North 
Carolina or Southern educational problem. And in 
the departments of Sociology and Rural Social 
Science the investigations have to do with the eco- 
nomic and social conditions of North Carolina com- 
munities and counties. 

The Review has commented before on the rapid 
growth of the Graduate School, and upon the increas- 
ing thoroughness of its methods. The list in question 
gives abundant and pleasing evidence of both. 



The University Serves 

The reach of the University in direct service to the 
State has steadily been extended during the past year. 
According to statistics just appearing in Bulletin No. 
8, Vol. II, of the Extension Division, which records 
in detail the activities of the thirteen departments of 
the Division, the major services from November 1, 
1921 to October 31, 1922, have been as follows : 

356 enrollments were i-eceived for correspondence- 
study courses from 262 students in 79 counties. 

200 physicians took the 1922 summer post-graduate 
medical course in 12 centers of the State. 

165 students were enrolled in extension classes in 
6 cities. 

188 lectures given by University speakers scheduled 
through the Extension Division. 

58,050 people heard at least one University lecture. 

16,000 homes received the "University News Let- 
ter" every week during the two-year period. 

101,850 copies of educational bulletins were printed 
and sent out. 

6.500 high school students took part in the State 
championship debating and athletic contests organ- 
ized by the Extension Division. 

780 people were reached by the Bureau of Design 
and Improvement of School Grounds. 

2,500 requests for educational information were 
taken care of by the School of Education. 

5,285 members of women's clubs studied programs 
prepared by the Extension Division. 

3,264 package libraries were sent upon request. 

850 people were reached by the field work of the 
School of Commerce. 

4,263 letters were written in answer to requests for 
general information. 

1,740 people were reached b.y the extension services 
of the School of Welfare. 

650 play-books and pageants were sent out upon 
request by the Bureau of Community Drama. 

7,600 people were served by the work of the Bureau 
of Community Music. 

7,800 letters were received by the Department of 
Rural Social-Economics i-equesting information about 
North Carolina. 

703 communities were reached by one or more 
forms of University Extension Service. 

Thousands of people attended the jierformances 
throughout the State of the Carolina Playmakers and 
the University Glee Clubs.

The Medical School Situation 

The Board of Trustees met in Raleigh on Friday, 
February 9, to continue its consideration of plans for 
the proposed Medical School. Delegations from Ral- 
eigh, Durham, Charlotte, and Greensboro presented 
proposals, following which the Trustees adopted reso- 
lutions to proceed with the establishment of the 
school, and to ask the general assembly now in session 
for $350,000 for construction and $150,000 for main- 
tenance in order to make a start. Decision as to the 
location of the school was reserved imtil later. 

The request goes to the legislature entirely separate 
and apart from the general University request, and 
stands or falls by itself. 

The whole problem is one of the most puzzling and 

difficult with which the University has ever been con- 
fronted, and it is also one which has aroused a great 
interest all over the State. 

n n n 

In Re Music 

JMusic at the University is a comparatively late 
comer. And, to those who believe in it, and would see 
its influence increase, and increase rapidly, the goal 
which should be reached is still far distant. 

But there is progress, and of the sort that in the 
end will count. Not only have the orchestra, the 
band, and the glee club given creditable account of 
themselves, but more important still, an increasing 
number of students have taken up various studies in 
music. Just now a group of students who are inter- 
ested in "both music and dramatics are preparing to 
present a musical comedy for which the music, as 
well as the lines, have been written by members of 
the Universit.v ; and each year several outstanding 
artists are brought — usually, so far, at a financial loss 
to the Music department — to the University for alto- 
gether worth while musical performances. 

With all this, however, two ways in which the situ- 
ation could be vastly improved and immediately are : 

(1) Some alumniis or citizen of the State could give 
the T^uiversity a pipe organ that would enormously 
increase the musical possibilities of the campus, and 

(2) someone else could establish a foundation, the in- 
come from which could be used in bringing artists of 
unquestioned reputation before the student body.

Virginia Classic on Alumni Day 

Something new under the sun is scheduled for 
Alumni Day. According to an announcement com- 
ing from Secretary Grant, of the Alumni Association, 
and Graduate Manager Woollen, these two gentlemen 
have arranged to bring the final game of the Virginia- 
Carolina series to Emerson field for the afternoon of 
June 12 — Alumui Day! 

That, we submit, with the banquet at noon, the 
spread on the green at six, and the performance of 
the Playmakers at 8 :30, makes a feast fit for a king. 


Alumni, Attention! 

The attention of alumni is directed to the story 
told on another page by Secretary Grant of the work 
of the General Alumni Association. After several 
months of preliminary organization, the Central Of- 
fice is getting down to real work, and the Association 
in the future may be expected to function in a way 
that will result in unusual good to the alumni and 
the University. 

For the moment, alumni are urged to do the fol- 
lowing: (1) Read Secretary Grant's article down to 
the last line; (2) Send in the answers to his ques- 
tionnaire; (3) If you happen to be a local secretary 
or class secretary, do the job that has been assigned 
you; and (4) Get ready to come back to the Hill for 
Alumni Day.

John Pipkin Washburn 

John Pipkin Washburn, president of the class of 
1920 and president of the Student Council, died at 



his home in Lillington a victim of tuberculosis, on 
Monday, February 5. Since leaving the University 
in 1920 he had been in the employ of the National 
City Bank, first in London and later in Shanghai. 
In June, 1922, he returned from China ill with the 
disease which terminated his brilliant career. 

For the body of alumni who left the campus years 
ago, this announcement probably has no special sig- 
nificance. But for the present generation of college 
men, and particularly for the University administra- 
tion, it has a most profound significance. The war, 
the S. A. T. C, the passing of Graham, and Stacy, 
and Battle in 1918-19, left the campus stunned and 
demoralized. Tradition had been lost sight of. 
Morale had suffered, and the hour cried aloud for 
student leadershiji. Without special preparation, 
but with sense and infinite tact, and a spirit both 
teachable and ideal, Washburn gathered up the loose 
ends of campus life, and through the wreckage cleared 
a new and shining way. 



Captain J. Stewart Allen made a visit to Chapel 
Hill in January. 

Nobody who was not at Chapel Hill the war year 
of 1917-1918 can know what the name of Captain 
Allen means to the University and to Chapel Hill. 
The personality of this young Canadian ofScer, form- 
erly with Princess Patricia's Canadian Light In- 

Captain J. Stewart Allen 

fantry, fresh from the war in Europe with a record 
of great distinction made a deep imprint. He ar- 
rived in September, 1917, and in less than a fort- 
night the student body would have been willing to 
go ahead and attack the Hindenburg line if he had 
said the word and promised to lead them. 

His mission at the University was to take charge 
of military training. And of course in 1917 military 
training had precedence over everything else. It is 

related by those who were under his command then 
that the forms and ceremonies of the soldier's life 
cut a very small figure with him. He went straight 
to essentials. His experience in the trenches — build- 
ing shelters, bringing up food and materials under 
fire, conducting patrols in no man's land, repelling 
gas and bayonet attacks, going over the top at dawn 
— had equipped him to tell the young men-about-to-be- 
soldiers just what the}' needed most to know. Prob- 
ably he did not despise the value of saluting and pre- 
senting arms and all the rest of the folderol of war 
as it is fought far from the front — but they didn't 
interest him much. He wanted to teach the real 
thing, and he did. 

His military work was not confined to Chapel Hill. 
He went about the State and gave a number of talks 
upon problems connected with the war. The knowl- 
edge that he spoke from actual experience naturally 
gave him high prestige, and he was eagerly sought 

After leaving Chapel Hill in 1918 he became an 
official of the Atlas Portland Cement company. He 
married, and now has two children. He is located 
in Pliiladeljjhia. 


The new Baptist Church in Chapel Hill will be 
completed early in March. It occupies a lot 160 by 
160 feet on Columbia Avenue near Franklin Street, 
and will be the church-home of the nearly five hun- 
dred Baptist students attending the University. The 
architect is Herbert L. Cain, of Richmond, Va., and 
the contractors are Salmon, Shipp and Poe, of Dur- 
ham. The building is one of the most modern church 
and Sunday school plants in the South. It is the pure 
Greek tj'pe of architecture and conforms to the gen- 
eral type of University buildings. 

The first floor is devoted wholly to student activi- 
ties, and contains an assembly room and social hall to 
seat 300, and fourteen large Sunday school rooms, 
rooms for the Young People's Union, the Bible Chair 
classrooms, a large kitchen, two cloak rooms, toilets, 
and shower baths. 

The second floor includes the cliurch auditorium, 
seating 800, beginners' and cradle roll rooms, mothers' 
room, large primary assembly room and six individual 
primary classrooms, pastor's study and office, church 
business office, supply room, and large double ladies' 
parlor, which can be used on Sunday for large classes 
of students. 

The third floor contains the balconies, seating 300, 
large junior and intermediate assembly halls, together 
with four junior and four intermediate classrooms, 
and two large senior classrooms. 

The fourth floor of the Sunday school wing or " T " 
contains a mezzanine floor with four junior and four 
intermediate individual classrooms. 

The success of this undertaking is due very largely 
to the Rev. Dr. Charles E. Maddry, of the class of 
1903, who has had the active cooperation of the State 
Mission Board of the Baptist State Convention and 
of individual Baptists throughout the State, as well 
as the hearty support of the local pastor and church 

Dr. E. J. Wood, B.S. 1899, has a paper on Sir Pat- 
rick Manson : The Father of Tropical Medicine, in the 
American Journal of Tropical Medicine for July, 




The H. C. L. does not woriy three freshmen who 
did their own cooking last month. The entire cost 
of their month's board including the fuel with which 
it was cooked was $9.38 each. Not only did they 
achieve such economy but a genuine economy that 
was not at the expense of health. The diet was 
worked out scientifically and each man consumed 
2700 calories per day. Two of the three held their 
weight ; one of these goes out every day for track. 
The third man gained two poimds during the month. 
I wonder if the Domestic Science Department of our 
esteemed sister can beat this record. 

Winning the B.S. in Dietetics 

The technique of nourishment seems to be getting 
considerable attention just now. An alumnus i-e- 
turning would find Swain Hall serving from large 
trucks that roll out from the kitchen like Joffre's 
aiitomobile army. The University cafeteria served 
its first month 5000 meals and last month, after doub- 
ling its floor space, 30,000 himgry people were fed. 
It is an interesting thing to see the spreading knowl- 
edge of dietetics reflected in the trays the students 
select. Milk and salad is surprisingly prominent. 
The time was when a cafeteria would have found any- 
thing but beef almost unsalable. Those who prefer 
sleep to food can now enjoy themselves without the 
harrowing consciousness of paying for something and 
then missing it. An enterprising boarding-house has 
established the "two meal house." You pay for and 
eat only two meals a day. 

The Freshman "Bloc" Has Arrived 

Beginning even before the death of hazing there 
has been manifest for many years an increasing 
amount of activity on the part of freshmen. A snow 
formerly meant the sophomore's opportunity. Last 
year it was emancipation day for the freshmen. This 
year the two classes have mingled their petitions to 
heaven seeking a snowless winter. The freshmen 
have enough glory without black eyes and the sopho- 
mores have had enough degradation. Last week the 
freshmen in one of the societies voted as a unit with 
the exception of two men. The result of such organi- 
zation was that they elected their choice of a speaker 
over all the upper classmen who were imanimous for 
the defeated candidate. We would like to hear the 
sentiments of "Kitty" Little, Fitzgerald, and Nance 
when they read of this "revolt." 

In view of such astounding precocity it is well that 
the freshmen are this year for the first time being 
given an intelligence test. The Department of Psy- 
chology has arranged a triple test that seeks to dis- 
cover the student's intelligence, emotional character- 
istics, and traits of personality. The first two ele- 
ments in this combination are in various forms in use 
all over the country; the last is in its experimental 
stage. Dr. F. H. Alport who came here this fall from 
the faculty of Harvard is generally recognized as a 
leader in this particular line of psychological research 
and he expects to make further progress through the 
material furnished by the tests that the freshmen are 

Five Deans for One 

The transformation from a college to a University 
is seen on every hand. It was the custom in the olden 
times for "The Dean" to have a few serious words 

in mid-term with "The Freshmen." Today that 
same process requires five deans talking to the fresh- 
men registered in their respective five schools, Pre- 
Med, Applied Science, Engineering, Commerce, and 
Liberal Arts. When the inventory period arrives 
chapel is disbanded and that period the freshmen 
meet in five different auditoriums scattered over the 

"Catching classes" is a campus phrase that refers 
to the efforts of the student. However, the profes- 
sors are coming to understand its significance. Three 
members of the faculty make a weekly jump via Ford 
of about fifty miles to "catch" an extension class. 
Teachers seeking improvement in method, business 
men asking for more knowledge about advertising, 
etc., club women following systematic studies in his- 
tory, these are the groups that ask the University 
for such service. The professor hurries to the Alumni 
Building, cranks up the Extension Department's 
Ford and spins merrily along a modern road to 
"catch a class." 

Washburn's Work Lives On 

This year's senior class was in its fii-st year when 
John Washburn of Lillington served the campus as 
mayor. It was Washburn's burden and privilege to 
span in his own college career a sharp break in the 
spirit and life of Carolina. He was a freshman in 
1916 when the whole institution was conscious of new 
life and harmony. He saw the military regime dis- 
place student government and campus life become 
barracks life, which "don't make no plaster saints." 
He watched from the vantage point of "junior-dom" 
the class of '19 sweat blood in the effort to reorganize 
the campus and restore the spirit of ' ' before the war. ' ' 
With a rare combination of understanding, tact, and 
firmness, he threw the weight of his own personality 
against the stream of demoralization consequent upon 
the lack of tradition. As President of the Senior 
Class and the Student Council 1919-20 he lifted the 
plane of student life and thought. We all enjoy to- 
day the result of his work. His death touched the 
hearts of all who knew him. The student-body 
through its president, J. O. Harmon, expressed its 
grief at the grave of its former leader. Those who 
Imew him personally carry a personal grief. The 
work that he did gives eternal meaning to student 
honor and leadership. 

Searching for Truth 
"Bible Study" is a title applied to student 
classes in religious discussion but it covers a wide 
range of courses. This quarter there are twenty-six 
student groups that meet in the dormitories on Wed- 
nesday nights for the discussion of "Facing the 
Crisis," a book on modern world problems by Sher- 
wood Eddy. These groups range in size from six to 
thirty-five. Those attending the discussions have re- 
fused to allow themselves to be regularly enrolled 
and checked or to have any part in the usual com- 
petitive scheme for maintaining interest. They have 
claimed that they were interested in the discussion 
and nothing else. Those who remember the old- 
fashioned way of organizing and maintaining interest 
in these courses will be pleased and surprised to learn 
that results justify the change. Probably the most 
interesting aspect of the course is the list of seventy- 
nine questions asked of Mr. Eddy last year by Caro- 
lina students in his audiences. These questions are 



used as a guide to the discussion. They concern so- 
cial problems, the church, religion, science, and poli- 
tics, "Do you think the races of the world will ever 
amalgamate?", "What importance do you attach to 
style's influence on the opposite sex?", "Do yo.u be- 
lieve that all men are born equal?", "Will not the 
inter-church movement have to succeed if we do 
greater work in other countries?", "Is not the object 
of religion comfort aud hope for those who have not 
the phj-sical or moral courage to meet death?", "Is 
Holy Spirit and Conscience the same thing?", "Is it 
right to destroy criminal imbeciles to prevent 
crime?", "Is not immortality the man-made answer 
to the selfish desire of man to live forever?", "What 
did Christ mean in saj'ing 'I and the Father are one 
and ye are my brethren'?", "Can a young person 
keep up with present-day society and retain proper 
fellowship with God?", "Can you reconcile science 
and religion without damage to either?", "Should 
the United States cancel her war debts?", "Is the 
league of nations practical?", "Was Germany the 
cause of the war?", these are some of the seventy- 
nine posers that the students hurled at Mr. Eddy last 
year. They enable one to understand what that great 
student of students meant when he said that he 
found more evidence of real independent thought 
here on this campus than on any other in the nation 
save one. 

"From India's Coral Strand" 

From Tabriz to Chapel Hill, or from the ruins of 
Babylon to the tomb of Dromgool might be the title 
of a migration completed when two Persian boys took 
up their residence in February in the fourth floor of 
"E" dormitory. The Seruuian brothers are nephews 
of Tamraz of the class of 1915. Leaving Persia last 
September, after spending millions of roubles, much 
mental and physical energy and three months of 
their youth, they are Safe in Chapel Hill for a com- 
fortable and profitable four years. One of the broth- 
ers will take the commerce course while the other fol- 
lows his imcle into medicine. We will soon be able 
to have a healthy cosmopolitan club ; there are now 
among us representatives from Japan, China, Cuba, 
India, Korea, and Pei-sia. The representatives of the 
latter country bringing a knowledge of five languages, 
fresh information of Russia and the Near East, and 
a satisfying ability to talk English will contribute to 
the broadening of many mental horizons. Who can 
write the equation for the chemico-mental transform- 
ations when young Persia's Near East and Manteo's 
Far East mingle in "bull-session." 

In Spite of the Anti-Trust Law 

The constitution for the publications union which 
will be submitted to vote this quarter will contain the 
following main provisions: 

Board of control of three students elected by the 
whole campus and two faculty members appointed 
by the president. 

Board will appoint business managers. 

Retiring editorial board of each publication will 
elect new editor. 

New editors will be chosen each year Ijy compe- 
tition rather than election. 

Blanket fee of $5.50 per year from every student 
will entitle each to the three main publications. 

Board will supervise all expenditures and deter- 
mine all salaries. 

If passed this constitution will completely alter 
the student publications for the better, according to 
the proponents. It is not expected that there will be 
opposition to any part of this measure except the 
blanket fee. 

Quantity vs. Quality 

There is not much noise on the campus in the mat- 
ter of legislative appropriations but there is much 
quiet talk and thought. The general feeling is that 
enough will be appropriated to make it possible to 
accommodate the increasing numbers seeking admis- 
sion. The only fear is that while we are merely keep- 
ing up so far as quantity is concerned, we will fail to 
advance in quality of equipment and instruction. 

Shall Freshmen Join Fraternity 

General fraternity discontent with the present one 
year rule and the consequent long rushing season has 
focused in a petition to the faculty to have the rule 
amended. The fraternities on their part offer to sub- 
mit to any scholarship requirement within reason 
that the faculty may see fit to impose. The petition 
seeking the privilege of initiating after Christmas 
has been referred to a committee of which Prof. A. H. 
Patterson is chairman. The committee is engaged in 
complete investigation both local and national in its 
scope. No faculty action will be taken until this pre- 
liminary survey has been completed and the results 

Student Conference Organized 

President J. 0. Harmon and two other prominent 
upperclassmen represented the University at the re- 
cent conference of students at Georgia Tech. Ten- 
tative organization of a southern federation of stu- 
dents, the adoption of a constitution to be submitted 
to the respective student-bodies, and arrangement of 
a second meeting in April were the accomplishments 
of the meeting. The problems of studeut life and 
student government were discussed. Better intercol- 
legiate spirit was urged. Our representatives report 
that Carolina and her honor system received much 
applause. It seems probable that an early meeting 
of the federation will be held at Chapel Hill. 

Professors Noble, Henderson and McKie Who Will Complete in June Twenty-Five Years of 

Service as Members of the Faculty. 



Hats Off to Men 

The position of respect and affection held in the 
heart of the average student by those men who are 
working their way through college was emphasized 
anew when it appeared that a University rule against 
agents canvassing the dormitories would work a hard- 
ship on the self-help students. Immediately the Tar 
Heel condemned the rule editorially, and resolutions 
of protest were adopted by the Y. M. C. A. Cabinet, 
the Campus Cabinet, and the Order of the Grail. In- 
vestigation, however, has indicated that the rule in 
question was being so interpreted and applied by 
Mr. Burch, the superintendent of buildings and 
grounds, that very little damage was done to the 
cause of the working student. This spontaneous ex- 
pression of interest shows beyond cavil that the 
campus retains its old-time respect for the man that 
is "on his own." 

"Blest Be the Tie That Binds" 

The campus now has two official bulletin boards, 
one at Memorial Hall, the other at the post office. 
The University publishes a weekly University Bul- 
letin which is sent to all members of the faculty. It 
contains a calendar of events, official announcements 
of administrative officers, and matters of general in- 
terest and importance. So it is that a growing insti- 
tution maintains its ' ' iinity, coherence, and emphasis. ' ' 

New Stunts for Old 

"Junior Week" is now no more. It has been dj^- 
ing a long time. The new holiday schedule finally 
killed it last year. Another "all-Carolina" festival 
is coming into being. After three years of growth 
and improvement the "Carolina Smoker" passes this 
year into a real Carolina institution. Any alumnus 
who can drop in on the happy crowd in Swain Hall 
March 2nd and watch the various classes stage "Stu- 
dent Pastimes from 1792 to 1950" will surely renew 
his youth and lo3'alty. Morning praj^ers under Presi- 
dent Caldwell, a "cotton picking" broken up by Dr. 
Ker, the leave-takings of 1860, the martinets of the 
S. A. T. C, catching 8:30's by radio, these are some 
of the rare morsels of humor that will be tasted by 
those who join in the annual renewal of tradition. 
By the time this reaches you the occasion will be over. 
I hope you saw it. 

Money for Fellowships Needed 

Four hard working earnest students have been re- 
leased from drudgery to take part in real student life 
and to spend more time in the intellectual effort they 
have sacrificed so much to enjoy. Or maybe they 
have been relieved from the burden of debt and en- 
abled to graduate with an even start. The men are 
those, one from each class, who have received the 
award of $125 each from the Holt Fund. To pay all 
your expenses for your freshman year, to make an 
average of "2," and to win the Sigma Upsilon short 
story prize, all in that one year means that you have 
a high powered mental machine and a strong purpose. 
Surely it pays the University and all of us to make 
it possible for such a man to turn some of his time 
from typewriting or wood-cutting to reading, study- 
ing, thinking, and writing. When you know the facts 
of the sixteen men applying for four such scholar- 
ships you wish there were some way under heaven to 
find twelve more checks for $125. — F. F. B., '16. 


One of the aims of the Methodists at Chapel Hill in 
the erection of their proposed new church, a picture 
of which appears on the front cover, has been to make 
a distinct contribution in architecture to the campus 
and the State. There has been the desire to put the 
necessary appointments of a modern college church 
in such form as not only to be convenient and practi- 
cal, but to be appealing to the aesthetic sense, and a 
source of inspiration for the beautiful. The tendency 
in recent years in church architecture has been to 
ignore graceful lines and beauty for the sake of 
utility. This mistake which has been made so fre- 
quently the committee is trying to avoid. An archi- 
tect, therefore, was chosen who loves grace and beauty 
of form as well as utility and convenience of appoint- 
ments. He is Mr. James Gamble Rogers, the archi- 
tect of the Harkness Quadrangle at Yale University 
and the consulting architect of that institution. 

The Colonial type of architecture proved the best 
form to embody all the features wanted, and to be in 
harmony with the University's building program. 
The proposed building plan calls for three units: the 
main auditorium seating 786 with a gallery seating 
218 additional ; a social and assembly unit with ample 
kitchen and dining room facilities, Sunday school as- 
sembly room with stage and moving picture outfit, 
and class rooms ; and a connecting unit at the rear of 
the auditorium and social building with lavatories for 
men and women, corridors, and four rooms well ap- 
pointed for social and reading purposes for students. 

One of the pleasing features of the plan is the 
court with a large elm tree near the center between 
the two main buildings. The shade of the overarch- 
ing elm, flower beds, and the green sward of the court 
will contribute a homelike atmosphere. Through this 
court will pass the walkway from the Library to 
Franklin Street. 

The outstanding feature of the whole structure will 
he the over-towering spire. Its size and height will 
be in proportion with the main building, and its pin- 
nacle will rise 210 feet in the air. But its distinctive 
feature will be its beauty. Its three sections will re- 
spectively illustrate the Doric, the Ionic and the 
('orinthian types of architecture. 

The plan of the committee is to erect the main audi- 
torium and the connecting unit as soon as plans and 
funds become available. The estimated cost of these 
units is $200,000. The present church building will 
he remodeled for social purposes and left standing 
until it can be replaced later by the remaining unit. 
The new church will occiipy the site of the Seaton 
Barbee dwelling. 


Mrs. Ethel Mankin McKie, wife of Professor G. M. 
McKie, of the department of English, died at Watts 
Hospital at 5 o'clock on the morning of February 
15, following an operation which she had undergone 
several days earlier. Before her marriage Mrs. Mc- 
Kie was Miss Ethel Mankin, of Washington, D. C. 
She came to Chapel Hill about twenty years ago and 
was greatly beloved by all the members of the Uni- 
versity community. She is survived by her husband, 
her daughter Elizabeth, and by her father, mother, 
and one sister, of Washington. 




The General Secretary of the Alumni Association, 
although elected in Janie. did not actually begin 
the work of the association until the first of Septem- 
ber, because of work already engaged in with the 
University, and certain difficulties that had to be met 
before the alumni work could be started. The fol- 
lowing is an effort to say. with no particular atten- 
tion as to cohesion of sub.iect matter, what has been 
accomplished so far, and what is projected for the 
weeks immediately before us. 

Local Associations 

According to the constitution that is being worked 
under, the General Association is a federation of the 
local associations, and the Central Office springs out 
of the work of these local units. Practically the in- 
verse has been true, and the Central Office has had to 
stimulate the creation of local associations. It is 
difficult to say just how many of these local units 
were in existence, because of varying degrees of in- 
activity — fifteen is a liberal estimate. About 120 
centers contain enough T'niversity men to have 
eifective local associations — 85 within the State, and 
twenty-five beyond the borders of North Carolina. 

On October 12tli — University Day — 27 of these 
local units gathered, many of them for regular meet- 
ings, some for reorganization meetings, and some to 
organize for the firet time. Three of these were out- 
of-State groups. During the Christmas holidays 
twenty-seven groups gathered within the State. New 
York alumni recently held a highly successful re- 
organization meeting. In Florida, Louisiana, and 
Charleston, Rock Hill, Richmond, Philadel])hia. Bal- 
timore, Louisville, and Oklahoma City — all out-of- 
State points — committees are now actively arranging 
for meetings to be held soon. Washington, D. C. 
alumni held a banquet on the 26th of February. 

Altogether, then, a little more than sixty of the 
110 units have been cared for to date. 

Appoint Local Secretaries for Large Unorganized 

For the purpose of collecting dues, correcting ad- 
dress lists, and gathering information for the alumni 
catalogue, it is highly important that the Central 
Office have some responsible alumnus in each center 
of University men to whom it can turn for co6])er- 
ation. Where there are local associations, this man 
is the secretary. As the work of forming all these 
units into associations is far from complete, the 
Board of Directors of the General Association at its 
recent meeting, authorized and directed the General 
Secretary to designate, wherever there is a large 
number of unorganized University men, some man 
to serve as the local secretary for that group. 

Alumni Secretaries' Conference 

As has already been stated, the nuicliinory of tin- 
General Association is built upon the local associa- 
tions which theoretically should include all Univer- 
sity men. As Carolina men are scattered through- 
out the 'world, this is, of course, impossible of complete 
realization. When all the local associations have 
been formed in the possil)le 110 centers al>()Ut 85 per 
cent of the total group will be reached. 

This basis of handling the work takes no account 
of the most unified, the most workable, and the most 
organic division of the alumni group — the class. 
Recognizing this the General Secretary and the class 
.secretaries who live in Chapel Hill, arranged for and 
held a Permanent Class Secretaries' Conference on 
October 12th, to consider the work that each should 
do in his own class, and also the contribution these 
key men can make to the work of the Central Office. 
Many of the classes have no permanent secretaries 
duly elected. For some of these classes men have 
consented to act under an appointment by the Board 
of Directors until the next meeting of their class. A 
few of the classes are yet improvided for. 

The Class Secretaries' Bureau 

A complete report of the accomplishments of this 
conference was carried in the November Review. It 
was instantly recognized that the men in these posi- 
tions are the most vital ones in the entire alumni 
group, and to enable them to make more real the 
service they can render, there was formed the Alumni 
Class Secretaries' Biireau "to see that jiroper and 
uniform facts concerning every University alumnus 
and class are kept, that the reunions are organized 
in a way to secure the greatest attendance from the 
members, and an enjoyable and effective i)rogram. to 
stimulate the work of the secretaries by proper co- 
operation, to secure a greater imity of action and 
feeling in the various classes through regular in- 
formative communications by letters and through 
The Alumni Review, and the regular jniblication 
of class histories, thereby fostering the work of the 
general and local associations." 

It is ca.sily recognized that the carrying out of 
these purposes constitutes a great portion of the work 
of the General Association. 


The Board of Directors at its last meeting recog- 
nized that the local unit, upon which the machinery 
of the Central Office is built, is no more important 
than the class unit ; that there are, since the form- 
ation of the Permanent Class Secretaries' Bureau, 
two distinct organizations in the field to accomplish 
the work to be carried on ; and that it would be wise 
to build the machinery of the Central Office on both 
of these units jointly, rather than the two separately, 
letting each share equally in the control of all asso- 
ciation affairs. This necessitates considerable re- 
organization of the present machinery as provided by 
the Constitution and By-Laws. It was therefore or- 
dered that the secretary make a report of this situa- 
tion and intention to the alumni and set about the 
task of wf)rking out the change. 

Two Years' Term for Officers 

This reorganization cannot be accomjilished readily 
because of the other work that must come first. 
Shortly after the election of officers last June, the 
question of the wisdom of the term being lengthened 
from one year to two years, especially at this im- 
portant time of getting the work under way, was 
raised by a large number of prominent alumni. So 
insistent was the suggestion that tin; Board of Direc- 



tors, at its first meeting, decided to submit the ques- 
tion to the alunmi for tlieir consideration. It has 
not been acted on by all because of the large number 
of units unorganized, but associations that have con- 
sidered it have endorsed the suggestion unanimously. 
If no protest is raised as a result of this announce- 
ment, the officers are going to consider that it is the 
wish of the majority of the membership for them to 
continue in position for another year. 

This will give ample time to get the whole alumni 
machinery to going, and the complete reorganization 
plan worked out. It will be published in The Review 
in the fall, submitted to the local associations at their 
subsequent meetings, and come up for final consid- 
eration and adoption at the 1924 meeting of the 
General Association in Chapel Hill. 

The Whereabouts of University Men 

There are approximately 11,000 living University 
alumni, not including the present student body. 
When the work of the General Secretary was started 
in September, it was found that we had the correct 
addresses for only about half of this number, making 
it necessary to recheck the entire list before effective 
work could be done. A stupendoiLs task. Now only 
about 2,000 are marked "lost sheep." Soon a list 
of these will be Lssued in order to get help in locating 

Alumni Catalogue Material 

The immediate goal of the Central Office is the pub- 
lication of a catalogue of all University Alumni. To 
do this it is not only necessary to locate University 
men, but to find out a wealth of information concern- 
ing their lives and accomplishments. For this piir- 
pose a questionnaire is now being mailed to those 
alumni that present recorded addresses will enable 
us to reach. About 5,000 have been sent out, of 
which less than 1,000 have been returned. Four 
thousand more will be mailed during the next twenty 
days to the balance of those that we can reach. 

Of course, a dozen lost men, or men who will not 
answer questionnaires will hold up indefinitely this 
work, and delay the publication of the book. Our 
chain is instantly broken by those who will not co- 
operate. Ten thousand men ma.y reply readily to 
our inquiries, and yet the balance cause us infinite 
expense, delay, and result in the publication of an 
inaccurate and incomplete directory. 

Reunions and Home-Coming Day 

Next June 12 is not only the dav for the reunions 
of the classes of '22, '18, "'13, '08," '03, '98, '93, '83, 
and '63 but it is a Home-Coming Day for all sons 
of Carolina. 

Virginia Game 

The transportation facilities are better now, the 
housing and feeding arrangements are better, and to 
add further attractiveness to the occasion. Graduate 
Manager Charles T. Woollen has arranged a Virginia- 
Carolina baseball game to be played on Emerson 
field on the afternoon of Alumni Day. More Uni- 
versity men are expected in Chapel Hill than have 
ever been here on a single occasion before. Arrange- 
ments will be made for members of the several classes 
to have seats in groups. 

Reunion Committee 

The most pleasant thing for any genuine Univer- 
sity man is a return to Chapel Hill. Here preacher, 
teacher, lawyer, doctor, politician, and business man 
live as boys again. Recognizing this, the Board of 
Directors has designated a committee, which will be a 
permanent part of alumni organization, to work out 
plans to make the coming Alumni Day the most en- 
.joyable yet, and then to advertise it thoroughly and 
bring University men home. This committee is com- 
posed of J. Frank Wilkes, '83, Charlotte; J. Craw- 
ford Biggs, '93. Raleigh; W. J. Brogden, '98, Dur- 
ham ; N. W. Walker, '03, Chapel Hill ; M. Robins, '08. 
Greensboro ; A. L. M. Wiggins, '13, Hartsville, S. C. ; 
W. R. W^unsch, '18, Monroe, Louisiana : L. J. Phipps, 
"22, Chapel Hill, whose terms will expire June 30th, 
1923: and 0. C. Cox, '09, Greensboro, and E. R. 
Rankin, '13, Chapel Hill, whose terms will expire 
June 30th, 1924. The General Secretary is ex-oificio 
a member. 

Class Histories 

The Class Secretaries at their conference in Chapel 
Hill on October 12th, ordered unanimously that each 
Class Secretai'y prepare and publish a history of his 
class just prior to the date for its reunion, in order 
to have a history of the activities of the members of 
the class and in order to stimulate interest in the 
coming gathering in Chapel Hill. 

The $5,000 Underwriters Fund 
In order to finance the Central Office until the 
work of the Association could be started, and ma- 
chinery provided to handle its affairs, fifty loyal Uni- 
versity men pledged themselves to advance $5,000 to 
meet the expenses of the first year. These men are : 
J. R. Baggett, Lillington; W. M. Person, Louisburg; 
Herman Weil, Goldsboro ; Leslie Weil, Goldsboro ; 
K. S. Tanner, Spindale ; Z. V. Walser, Lexington ;

Finance Committee 

The Board of Directors has ordered that the Gen- 
eral Secretary shall also be the Treasurer of the Asso- 
ciation, and chairman of a finance committee of three. 



President Murphy has appointed to the other places 
on the committee Charlie L. Weill, of Greensboro, 
and John "W. Umstead, of Durham. This is a per- 
manent committee and is to have control of the collect- 
ing of dues and the general financial affairs of the 
Association. It will start soon the collection of the 
1922-23 dues. 

Board of Directors Meet 
The last meeting of the Board of Directors was 
held at the Yarborough Hotel, Raleigh on January 
30th. Present— Walter Murphy, Robert H. Wright, 
0. J. Cofiin, Leslie Weil, Miss Kathrine Robinson, 
W. L. Long, and Daniel L. Grant, from the board ; 
by invitation C. T. Woollen, Business Manager of 
the University : L. R. Wilson, for Graham Memorial 
Fund; and E. R. Rankin, former secretary of the 
Association. — D. L. Grant, '21. 


Starting the season minus the services of "Billy" 
Carmichael and "Sis"' Perry, veterans of last year's 
Southern Championship team, the Carolina student 
body was somewhat skeptical as to the basketball 
team's prospects. But Captain "Monk" McDonald 
took the lead without a coach, placed Carl Mahler, 
who made his letter last j'ear, in Billy's place and 
Sam McDonald in Peri-y's place and up to the time 
of this writing (February 18) Carolina has won every 
game played and hopes run high for the outcome of 
the big Atlanta toiirnament which will decide champ- 
ionship honors again. 

The team now developed is every bit the equal of 
the famous 1922 squad which took Atlanta by storm 
and fought its way to the highest rung in the ladder 
of southern basketball achievement. 

This season, as usual, was opened with the Durham 
"Y" in Durham and Carolina won 33 to 28 without 
the services of Captain McDonald who had just quit 
the football team and was not in training with the 
other members of the squad. Shortly after the Christ- 

mas holidays the "Y" team came to Chapel Hill, and 
this time with Monk in and the quint in better shape 
Carolina won 50 to 21. 

The inter-collegiate contests started with Wake 
Forest here and the Baptists were defeated 38 to 26. 

Then came Mercer, the team Carolina defeated for 
southern honors last year. But the game proved 
rather an eas.y affair for the coachless Carolinians 
who crushed the Georgia five 33 to 22. It was one of 
the big early-season signals for another winning team. 

The usual northern trip had been left off the sche- 
dule because of the time expected to be spent in At- 
lanta, but Captain McDonald did lead his team 
through Virginia, and, for the first time in the Uni- 
versity's basketball history every Old Dominion five 
met was defeated. The V. M. I. game gave the Tar 
Heels a 26 to 20 victory, Washington and Lee was 
beaten 21 to 21 and Lynchburg College 50 to 31. Vir- 
ginia was not played on the trip as the schedule called 
for only one game with her, that set for Chapel Hill 
on February 24. 

The first Trinity game in Durham proved the closest 
of the year and the unusually strong Methodist team 
came near defeating the champions. The contest 
finally ended 20 to 19 for Carolina, however. Wake 
Forest also gave stubborn resistance on her own court 
but was defeated 25 to 23 in the last minute of play 
by a field goal by Jimmy Poole, a substitute. 

Florida came to Chapel Hill for the first time with 
a basketball representation and met an overwhelming 
defeat 59 to 14. The second Trinity game, this time 
at the Bynum gjonnasium, was attended by as large 
a crowd as could cram itself into the little building. 
The Methodists ran wild for the first few minutes and 
at one time the score stood 13 to 7 for them. But 
McDonald called his men together, and, led by the 
brilliant Carmichael, the team fought its way past 
powerful resistance and won 36 to 32. On February 
19th Carolina defeated N. C. State at Chapel Hill by 
the score of 39 to 9, and at Raleigh on February 21 
Carolina won from the same opponent again, this time 
by the score of 45 to 26.— G. W. Lankford, '23.

Southern scholars are well represented in the cur- 
rent issues of Studies in Philology. Dr. R. P. Mc- 
Cutcheon, of Wake Forest College, contributes an 
interesting chapter on Addison's connection with an 
early eighteenth century periodical, The Mkscs Mer- 
cury. Professor A. D. McKillop, of Rice Institute, 
Texas, writes about William Collins. Dr. H. E. Rol- 
lins, formerly of Texas, adds a supplement to the 
important article published by him in the same journal 
a year or so ago on the history of the drama during 
the period of Cromwell. Like its predecessor, this 
article goes to show that prohibition of the drama 
did not prohibit in the seventeenth ceutury. Per- 
formances were illegal, but they were given neverthe- 
less. And Professor Willard Farnham, of Washing- 
ton and Lee University, presents what is perhaps the 
most interesting feature of the January issue in his 
reprint of a medieval poem called "The Daves of the 
Mone." This poem is filled with bits of folklore and 
superstitions concerning lucky and luilucky days. 
The material is arranged by days, so that the reader 
might have a guide to conduct for each day of the 
lunar month. We notice many superstitions that are 
current today, and the student of North Carolina 
folklore might find in the poem evidence of the age 
of many saj"ings still extant. With this issue. Studies 
in Philology enters upon its twentieth volume. It is 
one of the oldest and best known of American jour- 
nals of research in its field. 


During the session of 1922-23, lecturers of note 
have alreadj' spoken here. Others of equal note will 
speak later in the year. On November 15, Garrett 
P. Servi-ss lectured on "The Astronomical Story of 
Creation," with interesting lantern slides. On De- 
cember 6, Hugh Walpole, leading English novelist of 
the younger generation, lectured to a very large and 
enthusiastic audience in Memorial Hall, on "Novel 
Writing and Novel Reading." On February 5, the 
veteran publisher, William W. Ellsworth, lectured on 
"Forty Years of Publishing." The following morn- 
ing before the class in journalism he lectured on

following the resignation of A. D. Watts, former

Carolina alumni in New York now have a live work- 
ingr organization. Plans that had been maturing for 
some time took defluite shape on February 9th. when 
approximately one hundred Carolina men gathered at 
a dinner held at the Aldine Club, 200 Fifth Avenue, 
and tied tighter and stronger the common bonds es- 
tablished at Chapel Hill. 

The dinner was a great success from everj' point of 
view. George Gordon Battle was toastmaater and 
there were numerous speakei's. but there was not a 
speech that bored. Prof. W. S. Bernard, the princi- 
pal speaker, talked for about two hours, but no one 
realized it. The selection of officers, a president, vice- 
president and secretary-treasurer, was put in the 
hands of the organization committee, which will act 
soon. The stand of the legislature (at this writing) 
regarding appropriations was no sooner brought to 
the attention of the meeting than a resolution was 
unanimously adopted, calling on the legislators to 
continue the program begun in 1921. 

What's most important of all, however, is that 
every one left that dinner mighty glad he had come 
and looking fonvard to another such get-together. It 
was after one o'clock before it ended and few had 
gone home before that hour. The interest in the 
meeting, aside from the large number present, was 
also well registered by many congratulatory messages. 

Junius Parker made the first talk, which was short 
but very much to the point. 

Prof. W. S. Bernard, head of the department of 
Greek in the University, was the principal speaker. 
He told of the growth of the institution, ]iarticularly 
in recent years, and briefly outlined its plans for the 
future. Pie presented facts that were pleasant revela- 
tions to those who had not been in close touch with 
the tremendous strides made by their native State. 
His address was eloquent and brought applause. 

At the conclusion of Professor Bernard's address, 
numerous questions were asked by the alumni con- 
cerning various phases of University activities. Par- 
ticular interest was exhibited in the future physical 
expansion of the Ihiiversity ; the internal, academic 
changes in the institution as evidenced in the develop- 
ment of the new schools of commerce, public welfare, 
engineering, and music; the growth of the extension 
service; and the character of the student body. 

Albert M. Coates, representing the General Alumni 
Association, urged the need of strong alumni groups 
throughout the country. He pointed out that there 
are now more than 12,000 former students of the Uni- 
versity living, scattered throughout the world. He 
told of the rapid growth of the General Alumni 
ciation since Walter Murphy, now president, was 
elected the first full-time secretary. The University 
administration, he said, is anxious to have the alumni 
make themselves felt in its affairs. The New York 
alumni have an important role in the making of local 
history and Carolina is proud of them, he declared. 

Sidney Blackmer, another ('arolina man (all the 
speakers were Carolina men), who is now plaving the 
title role in "The Love Child" at the Geo. M. Cohan 
Theatre, devoted hLs talk to The Carolina Playmakers 
and the work of Dr. Frederick H. Koch, which, he 
said, has attracted favorable attention in New York 
and throughout the counti-y. The New York pro- 

ducers are interested in Dr. Koch's work, he said. 

Other speakers included Dr. Herman Harrell 
Home, member of the faculty of New York Univer- 
sity ; Frank R. McNinch, former mavor of Charlotte ; 
the Rev. St. Clair Hester, of Brooklyn, and "Bill" 
Folger, whose 52-yard run at Richmond in 1916 gave 
Carolina her first victory over Virginia in eleven 

The dinner was organized by an executive com- 
mittee composed of George Gordon Battle, New York 
attorney, who was toastmaster; Junius Parker, coun- 
sel to the American Tobacco Company ; Alfred W. 
Haywood, New York attorney ; and Robert W. Madry 
of the editorial staff of the New York Herald. This 
committee was assisted by an arrangements commit- 
tee, the members of which were Stroud Jordan, Frank 
R. McNinch, M. R. Dunnagan, Lucius H. Ranson, A. 
W. Folger, Kameichi Kato, Jonathan Daniels, Ralph 
D. Williams, Elliot T. Cooper and John Terry. 

The executive committee wishes to acknowledge 
with many thanks the contributions toward the suc- 
cess of the dinner made by Rufus L. Patterson and 
C. W. Toms, who supplied the cigars and cigarettes ; 
by Louis Graves, who spread the news of the affair 
throughout North Carolina ; by Daniel L. Grant, Sec- 
retary of the General Alumni Association, whose co- 
operation in the matter of arranging a program was 
of inestimable value ; by the members of the arrange- 
ments committee, whose cooperation was splendid ; by 
T. I. Jones, who arranged for permanent quarters, 
and by others too numerous to be mentioned here. 

Carolina headquarters in New York for the present 
will be in the West Side Y. M. C. A., the officials of 
which have generouslj- offered the use of rooms for 
smokers and committee meetings. Just how often 
Carolina men in this city will get together will depend 
solely on how often they want to, and the executive 
committee is anxious to have further expressions in 
regard to this matter. 

The following resolution, calling on the present leg- 
islature to continue the "consti'uctive and forward- 
looking program" of education begun in 1921, and 
submitted b.y the resolutions committee consisting of 
George Gordon Battle, chairman, Dr. H. H. Home, 
Victor E. Whitlock, Dr. I. F. Harris and David 
Brady, was unanimously adopted and copies were 
telegraphed to Governor ]\Iorrison, President Chase. 
Lieutenant Governor Cooper, Speaker Dawson and 
Walter Murphy, i)resident of the General Alumni 
Association : 

Whereas, we the University of North Carolina 
Alumni Association in New York, at our meeting on 
February 9th, are greatly impressed with the educa- 
tional oroeress within the State of North Carolina, 
realizing the necessity of continuing such progress 
and firmly believing in the permanency of the recent 
great growth and future leadership of the State of 
North Carolina, do hereby 

Resolve, that we express our hearty endorsement of 
the legislative program of the 1921 session of the 
State Legislature for the upbuilding of education in 
the State, and respectfully and heartily memorialize 
the present, session of the State Lcgisiature to con- 
tinue this same con.struetive and forward-looking 
I)rogram. — R. W. Madry, 'IS.

A Half Million For Churches 

In the last six years five of the leading denominations of North Carolina 
have spent, or planning to spend, a half million dollars in hte erection of 
churches for the use of University students. 

These denominations, whose building funds represent the free offerings of 
thousands of North Carolinians, many of whom have had no connection with 
the campus but are interested in the service of youth, have chosen this method 
of serving. There are hundreds of other ways through which the lives of the 
student body of to-day and to-morrow can be enriched. One of these is

The University of North Carolina Summer School 

'Uhirty-Sixth Session - June 1 8-September 7, / 923 

The growing teacher is always in demand. Progressive schools are looking 
for teachers who have not stopped growing. Education is a never-ending process 
of development and growth. The growing teacher is one who is always learning. 
The growing teacher receives a double reward. The first is intellectual satis- 
faction; the second is increased pay. Don't stop growing. 

The University Summer School has laid its plans to serve 2,000 growing 
teachers in the summer of 1923. The Summer School will enable you to become 
acquainted with the best in modern education. 

A regular quarter's work will be otfered in 1923, but there will be two terms 
of six weeks each, so the teacher who cannot attend both terms may get the 
usual Summer School credit for attending either term. First term — June 18 to 
July 28. Second term — July 27-September 7. 

Preliminary Announcement will be sent on recjuest. 
Complete Announcement will be ready April 1st.

Now a rarely appealing memoir of him has been brought out by

his struggles in New York, and finally his experiences in the Army. 
The volume contains letters that gi\-e an unusually vivid picture of the
