Mr. Daniel Webster's Hat 

Daniel Webster's famous retort to a smart young man when their 
hats got exchanged: "Why, Mr. Webster, our heads are the same 
size," said the smart young man. "Perhaps so on the outside/' replied 
Mr. Webster. 

We make the application to our quality lines of school equipment, 
not the size but quality in the make-up — "inside stuff." 

We have furnished large quantity of equipment for the lecture 
rooms in the new buildings at the University during the past year. 

We also furnished the State College for Women at Greensboro 
and the State College for Men at Raleigh and practically every pro- 
gressive city and county system in the State. 

We made shipments into twelve States. 

We are in position to meet your requirements whatever they may 
be in quality, styles, prices and service.

Number 7 


The General Assembly of 1923 

The General Assembly of 1923, subjected through- 
out the entire session to an unprecedented number of 
highly emotional experiences, adjourned on March 6, 
having materially advanced the cause of roads and 
the educational and charitable institutions, having 
enlarged the program of the general educational sys- 
tem of the State, and having enacted measures look- 
ing to the development of some of North Carolina's 
at present undeveloped industries and areas. All told 
it appropriated some $15,000,000 for the maintenance 
of the State's institutions for the biennium, author- 
ized $15,000,000 in bonds for roads and $10,667,500 
for permanent improvements, and pledged, under 
certain conditions, the credit of the State, for build- 
ing a railroad across the mountains in Alleghany and 
Ashe counties. And in so doing, its leaders, in spite 
of the confusion which prevailed, exhibited the ability 
to keep their eyes on those things which are essential 
to the upbuilding of the State, and had the courage 
to do them. In doing this, it has done most excel- 
lently, and is to be congratulated with its immediate 
predecessors as a builder of the greater North Caro- 


What the University Receives 

By the provisions of the general appropriations bill 
enacted by the General Assembly of 1923 the Univer- 
sitv receives for maintenance $650,000 for 1923-21, 
and $725,000 for 1924-25. and a building fund for 
the biennium of $1,650,000. These amounts are less 
than those asked for by $65,000 for 1923-24, $40,000 
for 1924-25. and $667,300 for the biennium. respec- 

□ n □ 

What the Appropriations Mean 

The granting of these appropriations by the Gen- 
eral Assembly means that the University, during the 
biennium, is given the opportunity to increase and 
strengthen its work in behalf of North Carolina and 
the nation. The increase in the maintenance funds 
will enable it to provide instruction for the growing 
number of students who will come to the campus, to 
equip its laboratories and library more completely for 
the uses to which they are put, to promote its work in 
the fields of investigation and publication, and to ex- 
tend to the State at large the direct services of the 
School of Education, the Summer School, the School 
of Public Welfare, the Extension Division, and such 
other schools and departments as are engaged in work 
that directly contributes to the welfare of the general 
public. The increase for permanent improvements in- 
sures the provision of new class rooms, laboratories, 
and dormitories, and the extension of other parts of 

the physical plant which have been made a part of 
the building program. 

Altogether, the positive results ai'e of the very finest 
sort, and the University and the State are to be con- 
gratulated that the program begun two years ago has 
been so splendidly continued. 


Certain Things Will Not Be Possible 

While The Review finds much gratification in the 
action of the legislature, it is aware, as it pointed oixt 
in an earlier issue, that the cut of $105,000 in the 
maintenance fund and of $667,300 in the building 
fund, places the University in certain respects in a 
fairly difficult position. It had worked out its budget 
on a most exact basis and every item included in it 
represented something that the University seriously 
needed. Consequently some of the buildings which 
are needed now will have to wait, others that are in 
need of remodeling will have to remain unrepaired, 
and new expansion in many departments and schools 
will have to be deferred. And to this extent, the 
University, which "to-day has the opportunity of en- 
larging its usefulness to a growing, forward-pressing 
citizenship, will have to stand and wait and hope, 
instead of serve!" 

□ □ □ 

Appropriation for Medical School Not Granted 

The bill introduced in the legislature in accord 
with the resolution adopted by the Board of Trustees 
at its meeting on February 9th asking for an appro- 
priation of $350,000 for a building for a four-year 
Medical School and $150,000 for maintenance was re- 
ported unfavorably by the appropriations committee 
with the result that the proposal goes over for future 
consideration. Pew questions involving University 
policy have aroused more interest than this one, and 
it is to be expected that it will receive further consid- 
eration even though it has been disposed of tempora- 
rily. As a result of the discussion it has generally 
been recognized that North Carolina needs a Medical 
School and the action of the Trustees indicates that 
it should be established by the University. 


Questions Concerning Women and the University 

Two questions which completely engrossed the time 
and thought of the campus from March 11 to 23 were : 
What women shall be admitted to the University? 
and Shall the women have a building out of the re- 
cent appropriation ? How the questions arose, what 
the discussion of them has led to here on the campus 
and out in the State, and how they have been an- 
swered by the University is told in a documented 
story on another page which every alumnus is urged 
to read. 



Of the two questions, The Review has held that of 
whether a woman's building should be erected now 
as the more important, It had taken it for granted, 
until the questions arose, that the policy of admitting 
women announced by the University through Presi- 
dent Alderman in 1897, developed by President Ven- 
able during 1900-1914, and restated by President 
Graham in The Review in October, 1917, in an arti- 
cle entitled "A Woman's Building — A Magnificent 
Opportunity!" in which he urged the provision of an 
adequate building, was thoroughly understood not 
only here on the campus, but by the State at large. 

That view, however, was not borne out by the facts 
as revealed in the recent discussion, either on the 
campus or out in the State, as the questions of erect- 
ing a woman's building and co-education without 
limitation were badly confused, particularly by some 
of the recent alumni and the student body. 

n n □ 

Women Should Have Building Now 

In The Review's opinion, a woman's building 
should be built immediately. The Review, of course, 
realizes that one third of the building fund which the 
University asked for was not granted by the legisla- 
ture. It also realizes that it does not have at its com- 
mand all the data which the Building Committee of 
the Trustees must consider and be guided by in decid- 
ing what buildings must be erected, and what the re- 
spective needs for each building are. 

But as it turns its mind backward over the twenty- 
six years during which women have been admitted to 
the University ranging in number from four in 1897 
to eighty at present, it is amazed to discover how 
pitifully little has been done in recognition of their 
presence on the campus or for their physical comfort. 
From 1897 to 1916 — twenty long years — nothing was 
done. In the fall of 1917 the position of Adviser to 
Women was established and during the winter of that 
year a recitation room, without lavatory or other con- 
veniences adjoining, was fitted up as a reception room 
for women in Peabody Hall. In 1921 the Archer 
house, used for fifteen years as a boarding house, and 
the Roberson house were secured by purchase and 
rental, respectivelv, as headquarters and placed under 
the direction of a House Mother. In 1922-23 $175 
has been contributed by the University toward the 
purchase of a house piano, and a tennis court has 
been equipped on the grounds, — the sum total, so far 
as we can recall from memory, of the material, phy- 
sical things which have been provided by the Uni- 
versity for women in the entire quarter of a century 
since their admission here. 

□ □ □ 

Summer School Students an Additional Reason 

The Review finds the presence of hundreds of 
women teachers — practically 1000 in 1922 — on the 
campus every summer another consideration. To 
date these women, teachers in the State's schools, 
have had no place on the campus especially designed 
for the convenience of women, which they could call 
home. Old East, Old West and South Buildings, 
erected a good century and a quarter ago, sadly in 
need of over-hauling and modern conveniences, with- 
out any of the social rooms or other facilities which 

minister to the occasional comfort and enjoyment of 
the women are, per force, for several hundred of 
them, their homes. This neglect, almost shameless ex- 
cept for the fact that it has hitherto had to be shown 
on account of lack of funds, ought to be alleviated in- 
stantly in so far as it can be by providing one dormi- 
tory on the campus which the women can claim and 
take pride in as their own. 


Possibly We Shouldn't Mention It 

In urging this procedure The Review has no idea 
of attempting to state the whole case. It refers 
merely in passing to the reasons advanced by the Ad- 
viser to Women in her report to the President of the 
University, to the fact that such a building has 
steadily been on the building program of the Univer- 
sity, that the General Alumni Association at its 
business meeting on Alumni Day in 1920 passed a 
resolution urging the Trustees to erect a woman's 
building, and that in the minds of many alumni and 
citizens of the State its inclusion in the building 
scheme of the second biennium of the six-year pro- 
gram has been taken for granted. But it is going to 
present another reason which, in all probability, it 
shouldn't. As The Review looks back over the record 
of the years it is not unmindful of the part women 
have played in the University's physical and material 
upbuilding. In looking over the list of gifts made to 
the University, many of them in the earlier days 
when the University's funds were of the most meagre 
sort, it finds the following from the "Maries" alone: 
The bequest of Mrs. Mary Shepard Speight, of $10,- 
000, for scholarships for needy students ; the bequest 
of Miss Mary Ann Smith, of '$37,000, for the Smith 
Professorship of Chemistry ; the bequest of Mrs. Mary 
Elizabeth Mason, of the Mason farm; the bequest of 
.Miss Mary Ruffin Smith, of $15,000, for student 
scholarships : and more recently the bequest of Mrs. 
Mary Lilly Kenan Bingham which is to yield an an- 
nual income of $75,000, an amount which, if applied 
to the building fund instead of salaries which the 
State is relieved from paying, would provide a 
woman 's dormitory every biennium perpetually. Nor 
is The Review unmindful of the way in which, in 
the crusade of 1920-21. women all over North Caro- 
lina plead the cause of higher education with such 
telling effect that the six-year program, for which 
student body and alumni fought, and under the bless- 
ings of which the University is living and increasing 
its usefulness today, was written into the law of 
North Carolina. 

□ □ □ 
It Should Be A Good Sort 

Before we leave this subject there are two other 
things we wish to say. The first is that in planning 
the building it should be planned in keeping with the 
best standards of women's dormitories. The cost-per- 
student yard stick which applies to the building of 
dormitories for men should not be too constantly kept 
in mind. Obviously it should serve the purpose which 
a woman's dormitory is intended to serve. We are 
not arguing for ornateness or extravagance or luxury. 
But we are urging comfort and adequacy — things 
which certainly have not been provided in the past. 



Standards Must Be Maintained 

The other things we wish to say relates to the man- 
ner of expression through the Tar Heel of the ma- 
jority opinion of the student body on this question. 
The Review has no quarrel with anyone because of 
an honest difference of opinion on the matter in con- 
troversy. Co-education, or phases of co-education, 
have long been mooted questions. But it does object 
to an expression of that difference of opinion in a 
manner so unmindful of the restraints University 
men are supposed to recognize and employ in public 
discussion that Alma Mater can be pilloried in the 
press of the State as in need of a professor of man- 
ners and that it can be said in scathing epigram that 
there is less likelihood of some of the men on the 
campus being made gentlemen than danger of their 
being made ladies! 

The Review holds in such high esteem the reputa- 
tion which the University has maintained throughout 
the years in debate and editorial reflection of student 
opinion, that it cannot look upon the departure from 
University standards in this instance without grave 

□ □ □ 
Carolina Inn — A Reality 

Carolina Inn is a reality. On Saturday, March 24, 
Mr. John Sprunt Ilill, '89, of Durham, representing 
the incorporators of the Carolina Club, signed the 
contract for a 52-room colonial building to be located 
where the Graves house now stands, and actual work 
is to be begun in April. 

With this building in prospect, the University can 
look to the future with much satisfaction. For years 
one of its most serious handicaps in entertaining its 
visitors and speakers, in providing attractive head- 
quarters for returning alumni, in getting in touch 
with State and national organizations has been the 
lack of just such an Inn as Mr. Hill and his associates 
have assured the University. 

In providing the building, Mr. Hill and associates 
lay the University under obligation to them, and, if 
we mistake uot, they have established a delightful 
home that will not only contribute to the happiness of 
the University, its alumni, and guests, but will serve 
as an effective agency in extending the educational 
facilities of the University to North Carolina gener- 


Frank Graham Wins High Honor 

Frank Graham, '09, Associate Professor of History 
in the University and now on leave of absence at the 
University of Chicago, has recently been awarded the 
Amherst Memorial Fellowship for the study of social, 
economic and political institutions by the representa- 
tives of Amherst College, and by virtue of the award 
is privileged to spend two years in study, one of 
which is to be spent in Europe, with an annual sti- 
pend of $2000. Mr. Graham was nominated for the 
competition by the University of Chicago, was backed 
by the University of North Carolina, and won the 
coveted fellowship over a group of 151 picked gradu- 
ates of other American colleges and universities. 

In the winning of this honor by Mr. Graham The 

Review finds cause not only for congratulating him 
but the University as well. The Amherst Memorial 
Fellowship is one of the highest prizes open to gradu- 
ates of American colleges and its award is a mark of 
distinction not only to the individual who receives it 
but to the institution in which he received his under- 
graduate training. 


Fellowships Are Needed Here 

The Review contemplates the award with interest 
for a reason other than that a distinction has been 
shown an alumnus of the University who is a mem- 
ber of this editorial board. The fact that Amherst 
has established the Memorial Fellowship, that it has 
set aside enough money to yield $2000 annuallj' to be 
used by a student in study at home and abroad, and 
that it thereby turns the thought of hundreds of 
graduates of other colleges and universities towards 
its own campus and the things for which it stands — 
this fact The Review finds so interesting that it 
passes it on to the alumni of this University with the 
suggestion that they consider what the establishment 
of like foundations would mean here. 

The University of North Carolina, with its rapidly 
growing Graduate School, has the opportunity of do- 
ing even more than Amherst has done. Few fellow- 
ships, such as the Graham Kenan Foundation in 
Philosophy, are open to students in the Southeast. If 
established here, they would not only go far towards 
extending the reputation of the University, but would 
promote a type of investigation of which there has 
hitherto been far -too little in the South and of which 
there is tremendous need.

Home and Farm Ownership in North Carolina 

The North Carolina Club Year Book for 1921-22 
entitled Home and Farm Ownership in North Caro- 
lina has just been issued by the Extension Division 
under the editorial supervision of Professor E. C. 
Branson. It is an octavo volume of 207 pages in 
eight point type, contains 11 illustrative plates and 
numerous statistical tables, and represents the care- 
ful study of seventeen students of the University in 
addition to studies by Professors Branson and Hobbs 
of the department of Rural Social Science and Mr. J. 
W. Bailey, of Raleigh. 

The Review makes mention of the publication here 
for three reasons. It wants the alumni to know that 
by writing the Extension Division they can secure a 
copy of this study of one of North Carolina's most 
serious economic and social problems. In the second 
place, it wants to emphasize the nature of the studies 
which treat of the civilization of North Carolina of 
today. And finally it wishes to make the observation 
that investigations of this sort will enable the men 
who have been engaged in making them to diagnose 
the economic and social ills of the coming generation 
and to apply remedies for their alleviation and cure. 
The results may not, and probably will not, be im- 
mediate. But in sending men and women out into 
the State who have the background which the investi- 
gations have supplied, the University is contributing 
distinctly to the State's economic and social advance. 



How Universities Grow 

Two excerpts from the Yale Alumni Weekly show 
how institutions and special funds grow other than 
by state appropriations. The first is entitled Gifts 
of the Year, and it summarizes the gifts received by 
Yale during the fiscal year 1921-22. 

For the year 1921-22, the University received a total of 
$7,022,498 iu gifts to permanent funds; $1,651,290 in gifts 
for building and other non-permanent funds, $405,113 for in- 
come for special purposes and $335,499 in income for general 
purposes — a total in gifts of $9,414,431. Deducting new build- 
ing funds, there was a net increase of $6,985,001 for the year. 
Of the $740,642 referred to above as gifts to income for the 
year, $185,000 was given by the General Education Board and 
$30,000 by the Commonwealth Fund to enable the Yale Medical 
School to provide funds to reconstruct two wards of the New 
Haven General Hospital and to build laboratories in connec- 
tion with that institution with which the Medical School now 
is affiliated. The Commonwealth Fund gave $70,000 more to- 
ward the expense of the Department of Surgery. 

The second excerpt shows how Yale alumni, 
through their Alumni Fund, support the work of 
the University.

In late February and in March alumni meetings, 
attended by Alumni Secretary D. L. Grant, '21, were 
held at Richmond, Birmingham, Atlanta, Jackson- 
ville, and Rock Hill. 

Twenty-five or more alumni of Richmond and 
Petersburg met informally with Secretary Grant on 
February 26 at the Jefferson Hotel, Richmond. 
Alumni work was discussed and plans were set in mo- 
tion for a big banquet to be held at an early date. 
On the suggestion of John L. Patterson, Benjamin 
Bell, Jr., W. B. Jerman and O. R. Cunningham were 
appointed as a committee to arrange for the banquet. 

Florida Alumni Meet 

The Florida Alumni Association was organized at 
a rousing banquet held on March 10 at the Seminole 
Hotel in Jacksonville. Speakers at the banquet in- 
cluded Secretary Grant, H. P. Osborne, F. D. Up- 
church, F. W. Norris, W. A. Schell, Miss Fannie Holt 
and W. J. Forney. Mr. Osborne in his talk pointed 
out that the University has supplied Florida with 
three Governors. There are a large number of alumni 
in Florida and it is the plan of the association to in- 
clude them all in its membership. Officers were 
elected : H. P. Osborne, of Jacksonville, president ; F. 
D. Upchurch, of Fernandina, vice-president; W. A. 
Schell, of Jacksonville, secretary; and F. W. Norris, 
of Jacksonville, treasurer. The president appointed 

on the board of directors Judge Frank Smathers, of 
Miami; J. W. Morris, Jr., of Tampa; L. B. Edwards, 
of Tallahassee; A. D. McNeill, of Jacksonville; and 
Wm, Fisher, of Pensaeola. 

Birmingham and Atlanta Organize 

At a meeting held on March 13 at the Tutwiler 
Hotel, Birmingham, the Birmingham Alumni Associ- 
ation was organized. The meeting was an informal 
one and every one present joined in the discussion. 
Among those who attended the meeting and related 
experiences of college days was Lucius Frieson, a 
graduate of the University in the class of 1859, who 
has not been in Chapel Hill since he graduated. Secre- 
tary Grant assisted in the organization of the asso- 
ciation. S. S. Heide, of Ensiey, was elected presi- 
dent, and T. R. Eagles, of Birmingham, was elected 
secretary. There are many loyal Carolina men in the 
Birmingham district and all are expected to join 
heartily in the work of this association. 

An informal though enthusiastic meeting of At- 
lanta alumni was held on March 14, when plans were 
made for the formation of a State-wide association, in- 
cluding in its active membership all of the 150 or 
more alumni residing in Georgia. A big banquet is 
planned for May 4 or 5 when Carolina plays Georgia 
Tech in baseball at Atlanta. T. B. Higdon was elected 
temporary chairman of the association. Secretary 
Grant attended the meeting and outlined the work 
now being carried on by the General Alumni Associ- 

South Carolina Plans Special Meetings 

On March 15 the alumni of Rock Hill, S. C, met 
at a dinner at the Carolina Hotel. Those present were : 
A. H. Bynum, Dr. D. A. Bigger, Dr. R. E. Sumner, 
Dr. R. D. Sumner, V. B. Blankenship, F. C. Poe, Miss 
Katherine Woodrow, and Secretary Grant. The oc- 
casion was a happy one. Plans were made for a big 
banquet on April 19 for alumni of Rock Hill, Ches- 
ter, York, Lancaster, Fort Mill and other nearby 
towns. A. H. Bynum was designated temporary 
chairman to arrange for the subsequent meeting, when 
an association will be formed. Walter Murphy, of 
Salisbury, president of the General Alumni Associ- 
ation is expected to be present and deliver the prin- 
cipal speech at this banquet. 

South Carolina has more University alumni than 
any other State except North Carolina. The number 
in South Carolina is sufficiently large to justify the 
formation of as many as seven local associations. The 
centers for these groups will be Rock Hill, Columbia, 
Bennettsville, Florence, Charleston, Spartanburg, and 
Greenville. Alumni who reside outside these centers 
will naturally affiliate with the one nearest them. It 
is important for the central alumni office that each 
alumnus be listed as a member of some local associ- 
ation, even though he may not be able to attend all 
the meetings. The Pee Dee Alumni Association, with 
headquarters at Florence, held a meeting on October 
12 and apparently is the only unit already organized. 
Secretary Grant recently visited Charleston. Alumni 
work is going forward there under the direction of 
L. W. Parker, '07. It is planned that the Bennetts- 
ville, Columbia, Spartanburg, and Greenville centers 
will hold meetings before June.

Statement Concerning Co-education 

The question of co-education at the University has aroused 
so much discussion that it seems to me the position of the 
University administration should be made clear. The position 
is, in a word, that the policy under which the University is 
now operating, and which has been decided upon after careful 
thought, is altogether in keeping with the logic of the situation, 
and with the mature thought of the great majority of both 
men and women in the State. There appears no evidence that 
it should be changed. What does appear, however, is a con- 
siderable misunderstanding of just what, that policy is, and a 
begging of the question brought about by the division of opin- 
ion as to whether a building for women should be erected at 
this time. 

The question as to the immediate erection of a woman's 
building is one to be determined in terms of what is practica- 
ble now. The University's attitude toward women students, 
on the other hand, can be considered only, as it has been con- 
sidered, in the large and permanent terms of State policy. 
Let us see, then, on what the University's policy is founded. 

Equality for Both Sexes 

In the first place, no great democracy is possible today with- 
out full and free recognition on the part of its citizens of the 
fact that there must be for both sexes equality of educational 
opportunity. The State of North Carolina, in her rapid prog- 
ress needs trained women, women of wide horizons and clear 
vision, every whit as badly as she needs trained men. In so 
far as higher education opens a way to life, to larger life, that 
way must be open to young women and young men alike. In. 
so far as higher education is a means, as the framers of our 
Constitution said it was, to promote ' ' the happiness of the 
rising generations, ' ' the rising generation without distinction 
of sex is entitled to its benefits. 

Second. The University of North Carolina is the State Uni- 
versity, the head of the State's educational system, maintained 
from the public funds, to serve the State whose creation and 
instrument it is. It is, as it is described in the Constitution, 
for the benefit of the "youtii" of the State. No constitu- 
tional provisions, no legislative enactments, bar women from 
its halls. It is, therefore, its duty and privilege to iunctiou 
in the education of women in whatever ways are designed to 
insure to the women of the State equality of educational op- 
portunity through the State's educational system. It cannot 
conceivably take any other position; it cannot for a moment 
be satisfied with any policy which would mean that it refused 
to play its part in making possible a well-rounded system of 
higher education through State support for women as well as 
for men. It cannot deny its function as the University of a 
democratic State, whose citizens of both sexes share equally 
the duties and the rights of citizenship. 

Keeping the two principles stated above in mind, it is clear 
that the part which the University should play becomes a mat- 
ter of definition, a question of fact as to what is essential to 
make equality of educational opportunity a reality. It is a 
question to be determined, that is, in the light of the facts as 
to what the State is doing and should do for the education of 
women, and which can be wisely settled on no other basis. 
What are the significant facts? To my mind they are these. 

Development in State is Different 

State universities in most sections of the country have not 
separated their facilities for the higher education of women 
from those for men. Such state universities as those of Iowa, 
Michigan, California — in fact, those of the middle western 
states generally — offer university education to women from 
the freshman class up through the graduate school on the same 
campus and under the same instructors as for men, and have 
done so from their foundation. In North Carolina the de- 
velopment has been somewhat different. With the full assent 
and active support of the citizenship of the State, the institu- 
tion for women at Greensboro, originated as the Normal Col- 
lege, is broadening into the North Carolina College for Women. 
I trust that no one will think me presumptious for saying 
anything in this connection about another institution than the 
one I have the privilege to serve; it is essential if the situation 
is to be clarified. The North Carolina College for Women, 
then, with the thoughtful citizenship of both sexes in the State 
behind it, began some years ago its development into a State- 
supported institution of collegiate grade and scope, and has 
been recognized as a standard college by the Southern Asso- 
ciation of Colleges and Secondary Schools. This matter of 
policy in the higher education of women is, I believe, settled 

in the minds of the State, and to it, as the State has defined 
it, the University should, and does, cordially assent. 

Now this means certain things. It means, first, that the 
University cannot, and should not, attempt to do what Iowa, 
and Michigan, and California, and their neighbors have done; 
adopt a policy which enrolls hundreds and thousands of women 
in elementary classes on the same campus with men. In none 
of the States which have done this does there exist a separate 
state institution for women playing a part in the state's edu- 
cational system comparable to that played by the North Caro- 
lina College for Women. The point should be emphasized, be- 
cause I do not think that it is fully understood. State-sup- 
ported normal schools for women exist all over the country; 
separated state colleges for women are rare. The most, fully 
developed example outside of North Carolina is probably the 
State College for Women of Florida, which is located at Talla- 
hassee, while the State University ^to which I believe women 
are not admitted at all) is at Gainesville. 

In the light, then, of our local situation, I am convinced 
that a policy of absolutely free and unrestricted co-education 
at the University of North Carolina would not be wise. It 
would involve on a large scale a duplication of resources and 
of expenditure for large elementary classes; such an unneces- 
sary duplication as should have no place in a well-conceived 
State system of higher education. 

Graduate Work at Chapel Hill 

Let us consider next the other extreme, that of graduate and 
professional instruction. Such instruction has been built up 
through years of effort at Chapel Hill. It is expensive, it is 
work of University, as distinguished from collegiate, type. 
The State demands such work of its University. It is one of 
the functions for the performance of which it exists. I do 
not believe that I am saying anything to which the friends of 
North Carolina College for Women would not assent in stating 
frankly my opinion tuat, save for the fields into which women 
largely enter, the logical place for graduate and professional 
work for both women and men is at the University of North 
Carolina. This is at. once the simplest and most economical 
solution; the simplest in that strong schools already function- 
ing exist at Chapel Hill; the most economical in that the 
duplication of specialists, books and apparatus would be a 
terribly costly business. Is it not clear, then, that the gradu- 
ate and professional schools of the University should, as a 
wise measure of State policy, always be open to women as well 
as to men? Impersonally, am absolutely convinced that it is. 

As to Advanced Undergraduate Work 

So far, then, a logical policy would seem to point to the 
exclusion of women from elementary work at the University, 
and their admission to graduate and professional work. But 
there is still another point. What of their admission to ad- 
vanced undergraduate courses? The answer to this question is, 
I think, clear. It is inevitable that, as soon as we get beyond 
the elementary courses of freshman and sophomore grades, 
which are fairly well standardized in all good colleges, insti- 
tutions will vary in the range and scope of the advanced 
courses which they develop in this or that department, and 
that students of varying types of mind and interest will find at 
different institutions that work which most nearly meets their 
needs. Local situations, matters of institutional policy, natu- 
rally lead to greater developments in advanced work at a 
given institution in some fields rather than others. It would 
seem logical, thereiore, that women who find at the University 
as juniors and seniors advanced courses which' the University 
has developed, and which are in line with their serious inter- 
ests, should be allowed to pursue them. Any other policy 
would, I believe, be a contradiction in fact of the theory of 
equality of educational opportunity upon which our State sys- 
tem of higher education must be based, inasmuch as the needs 
of young women of widely varying types of interest must be 
considered if real equality of opportunity is to exist. There 
is in such a position no conflict of scope between the institu- 
tions at Greensboro and at Chapel Hill; rather in this respect 
they are to be considered as supplementing each other. 

Policy Is Not New 

The policy I have outlined is, I believe, fully in accord with 
the logic of the situation. It is not original with me. but is 
the policy under which the University has been operating for 
years. Women have been, and are, welcome here under that 
policy. It has not, I think, been fully understood, and I have 
attempted to clarify it. I see no reason why it should be 



changed, save as it changes in detail of itself naturally through 
the years, in terms of the offerings of North Carolina College 
for Women and of the University in this or that department. 
I believe it is a policy upon which the friends of both insti- 
tutions can unite, as wise alike for the institutions and for 
the best interests of the education of women in the State. 

The question of a building for women at this time is another 
question. It is not, and should not. be considered as, a de- 
termining factor in the University's attitude toward women. 
Whether it can or cannot be built at this moment is a matter 
which must, be carefully studied in the light of all the facts, 
and of the best interests of the University and of the State. 
But whether or not it is built at this moment, the provision 
of adequate material facilities for women at the University in 
accord with its fixed policy is an obligation which the Univer- 
sity cannot, and has no desire to, escape. On the contrary, 
the University has no deeper satisfaction than that of proper 
provision for the needs of the growing commonwealth which 
it serves. 

But this is apart from my main point. What I have tried 
to say, as clearly as I know how, is that the University believes 
in equality of educational opportunity for both sexes, and in 
its duty to see to it that it does its part to help make that 
principle a reality. 


The General Assembly at its recent session elected 
the following to membership on the board of trustees 
of the University: 

Thomas Contee Bowie. Ashe ; Bennehan Cameron,

In its last issue, The Review, in listing the names of 
alumni who had underwritten the $5000 fund for the 
establishment of the alumni secretaryship and office, 
inadvertently failed to include the name of Dr. R. 
H. Lewis, of Raleigh. The Review regrets the omis- 
sion and takes this opportunity of making the list 

On the Way to Chapel Hill for the Big Alumni Reunions, June 11-13, 1923! 




In the last issue the main features of the proposed 
Student Publications Union were set forth. To date 
the measure has not been passed. The main objec- 
tions raised are the injustice of a blanket fee for sub- 
scription to the publications, the loss of prestige to 
the literary societies by surrender of the sponsorship 
of the Carolina Magazine, and the "undemocratic" 
plan of choosing editors by competition rather than 

Legislature Did Not Have "Close-up" View 

After spending weeks in suspense awaiting the final 
action of the legislature in the matter of University 
support the campus has subsided into the post-cli- 
mactic lassitude whose chief characteristic is a vague 
feeling that if the legislature had only known the 
vivid human facts of the need for immediate and ade- 
quate expansion it would have found ways and means. 
As one group put it to me today "They were not on 
to the inside story." 

When it Comes to Joining, We're There 

The campus voted to join the Southern Federation 
of College Students. The purpose of this organization 
as stated in its constitution "shall be to discuss stu- 
dent problems and student government, to be of mu- 
tual assistance to each other in the exchange of ideas, 
to make plans for unity of action, to promote better 
educational standards and to carry these plans out ac- 
cording to the provisions of the Constitution." Mem- 
bership is limited to the institutions of the S. I. C. 
and several others represented at the first meeting. 
The Federation will hold an annual convention dur- 
ing the latter part of each April. 

Why Men Drop Out 

There has been much debate about the cause for 
what seemed to be a large casualty list in the Univer- 
sity's undergraduate clasess. Frequently half of 
those entering failed to graduate four years later. 
This year a study has been begun with the class of 
1926. An effort is being made to discover the reasons 
for withdrawals as they take place. The results so 
far are as follows : 111 health — 5 ; Insufficient funds — ■ 
3 ; Scholastic failure — 3 ; Discouragement — 3 ; Mis- 
taken in choice of course — 2 ; Needed at home — 1. 
These figures represent about half the withdrawals to 
date. The reasons are probably representative. 

Worth While, All the Same 

The February number of the Carolina Magazine is 
limited in size and has no central theme as did previ- 
ous numbers. However, the material is exceed] ugly 
readable. The opening editorial on "The Merit Sys- 
tem" sets forth the reasons for the abandonment of 
the elective system in manning the publication staffs. 
By the way, we formerly elected debating teams. The 
articles range from "Dog Ears vs. Van Heusens, " a 
collection of early 19th century student letters made 
by J. 0. Bailey, to "Henry Horace Williams and His 
Message" by William D. Moss. With a play by Paul 
Greene entitled "White Dresses," a biographical 
sketch of R. H. Graves '97, a brief article on student 

life in Switzerland, and other lighter materials, this 
issue of the magazine should be interesting to many 

The Ladder Finally Broke 

That ladder in the gymnasiimi that you perched on 
when you wanted to get an especially good view of a 
basketball game has at last broken. Jack Fred '26, 
and H. L. Chapin '25, were severely but not fatally 
injured by the 25-foot fall. 

Win Honors in New Sport 

The Carolina wrestlers doubled the score on David- 
son in their meet here February 26th. This is the 
third meet and the second victory for the newly or- 
ganized team. It is rumored that next year this sport 
will be formally recognized and financed by the Ath- 
letic Association. That will mean a permanent addi- 
tion to our list of minor sports. 

Coach Bob and the Wooden Track 

Coach Bob Fetzer has for the second time taken a 
victorious team to the indoor track meet in Durham. 
The little old wooden track out on Emerson Field 
produces results. 

Musical Comedy Makes a Hit 

The "Kalif of Kavak," a musical comedy staged by 
the Masque and Wig, made such a hit that it is to re- 
appear on the local stage and make at least one trip 
out in the State. Ernest Thompson wrote the words. 
P. H. Daggett and the author wrote the music, which 
was orchestrated by Professor Weaver. All the parts 
were taken by boys, even the dancing inmates of the 
harem being thus represented. The audience of over 
700 approved most violently of the whole per- 
formance. Perhaps there will soon appear among us 
a new permanent student organization, the Carolina 

Private Dining Room Makes its Bow 

The Carolina Cafeteria, a local branch of the White 
House chain which has cafes in Durham, Chapel Hill, 
and Petersburg, Va., will open for business on May 
15th in the new Tankersley Building. One welcome 
feature of the new concern will be the private dining 
room for the use of organizations wishing to give ban- 
quets, feeds, or smokers. 

Students Save Furniture 

After many so-called "cedar-bird" alarms this year 
the community has had a real and disastrous fire 
which destroyed the roof and gutted the entire upper 
floor of the E. K. Graham house. Through the 
prompt and efficient help of the students the furni- 
ture belonging to Mr. Bernard, the present occupant, 
was saved. Mr. M. C. S. Noble, trustee of the prop- 
erty, states that no definite plans have been made as 
yet for reconstruction. 

These Be Master Financiers 

Former managers of the Yackety Yack will be in- 
terested and envious to know that the managers of 



this year's volume have worked out a plan whereby 
each organization will be forced to pay for its space 
before the book goes to press. The campus wonders 
whether they are planning to take their graduate 
work at Oxford or the Sorbonne. 

What's the Matter With the Boys? 

There are some slight indications that the students 
of the University are opposed to any further exten- 
sion of co-education on this campus. One of these 
"slight indications" was the extra edition of the Tar 
Heel that was issued just before the session of the 
Building Committee of the Trustees to inform that 
body just how representative students who did not 
agree on any other subject could be unanimous that, 
all the appropriation for the next biennium be spent 
on the boys. The other straw in the wind was a ballot 
on the same issue that ruled the ladies out by a vote 
of 1100 to 146. Talk about race prejudice being the 
strongest force in society? 

Logic, Logic, Logic 

A "spring drive - ' is on in University debating cir- 
cles. Carolina debaters will speak against West Vir- 
ginia, Johns Hopkins, Washington and Lee, Ken- 
tucky, and George Washington within the next few 
weeks. In addition to this program we will be repre- 
sented in the National Literary Society Debate on 
Capital Punishment, to be held in Washington next 
month.— F. F. B., '16. 


According to an announcement made by Mr. John 
Sprunt Hill, '89, of Durham, representing the incor- 
porators of the Carolina Club, the contract for Caro- 
lina Inn, to be located on the Graves property at the 
west gate of the campus, was let on March 24 and 
actual work will be begun in April. The T. C. At- 
wood organization drew the plans and will supervise 
the construction. H. L. Smith, of Durham, is the 

To Be of Southern Colonial Style 

According to the plans the building is to be of 
brick, two stories and a dormer story high, and all 
floors and partitions are to be of fireproof construc- 
tion. The cornices, verandas and Porte-cochere, 
however, are to be of wood. Southern Colonial is the 
style in which it has been designed, and special pains 
have been taken to give the Inn a home-like, old- 
fashioned, appearance as though it might have existed 
in Chapel II i 11 since the early days. 

An imposing two storied veranda, 70 feet long and 
reminiscent of the Washington Homestead at Mount 
Vernon, is to face Cameron Avenue, and an equal ly 
long one-storied veranda will extend across the rear 
facade. These verandas are to be connected by a 
paved terrace running the length of the East, or "Co- 
lumbia Avenue, side of the building. There will be 
an entrance for automobiles on the Columbia Avenue 
side under a covered porch or Porte-cochere. This en- 
trance, as one enters the Inn, will give access to a 
large general reception room, a large ladies reception 
room with dressing room adjoining, and to the lobby. 

The cost of the building, when completed and ready 
for occupancy, will be $200,000. 

Fifty-two Rooms Provided 

Fifty-two rooms for guests will be provided and 
each room will have a private bath. Eight or nine 
of these rooms will be double rooms, about 14' x 14' 
square. The single rooms average 10' x 14'. Each 
room will have a good-sized closet, and most of the 
double rooms will have two. Space will be provided 
for an elevator, though it is possible that this will 
not be installed until later. 

A special feature of the Inn will be the ball room 
43' x 51', centrally placed, and in direct connection 
both with the ladies reception room and with the serv- 
ing and dining rooms. The intention is to rent out 
the ball room for dances, banquets, or meetings of 
various sorts. It is so planned that the normal life of 
the Inn will not be interferred with by these enter- 
tainments, as the entertaining suite of rooms, form- 
ing an independent unit, can readily be closed off 
from the lobby and main dining room. 

The kitchen, pantries and serving room have been 
given ample proportions so as to be able to take care 
of especially large crowds of people, at commencement 
time or at the more important football games, etc. 
In the basement will be a laundry, machine room and 
heating plant. 

Graves House to Be Remodeled 

It is proposed to move the present Graves house 
to a new position somewhat to the south of the Inn, 
and to connect with it by a one-story covered passage- 
way. This can be used as a students' boarding 
house, and the meals served from the kitchen of the 
Inn. A few extra guest rooms will be obtained by 
utilizing the second story of the Graves house. 

If all goes smoothly, the Inn ought to be ready for 
occupancy early in 1924.

Abraham Lincoln: Selections prom His Speeches 
and "Writings. Edited by J. G. deR. Hamilton. 
Chicago : Scott, Forseman and Company. 1922. 
Pp. 424. 

Among the books which came from press during 
the holiday season is the above entitled volume of 
selections from the addresses and writings of Abraham 
Lincoln, edited by Dr. Hamilton, Kenan Professor 
of History and Government in the University. In 
presenting the book, Dr. Hamilton, who has long been 
a student of Lincoln, says: "This little volume 
. . . is prepared with a double purpose. Pri- 
marily it is intended to serve as the basis for the 
work of classes in English literature, or as collateral 
reading in American history, but it is hoped that it 
may also interest those who wish to find, gathered in 
convenient form, the more important and character- 
istic speeches, letters, and state papers of the great 

For the citizen who is baffled by the multiplicity 
of Lincoln titles, but who wants to become better 
acquainted with Lincoln, the book has distinctive val- 
ues, as indicated by this further quotation from the 
introduction: "Three great reasons make the study 
of Lincoln's writings worth while. In the first place 
uneven as they are, they contain masterpieces of 
English literature which in themselves, as examples 
of effective reasoning and presentation, fully repay 
study. A second reason is to be found in the revela- 
tion they furnish of a man who is one of the great 
figures of world history. Knowledge of his writings 
develops an intellectual intimacy with a man who was, 
in his later years at least, one of the loftiest souls of 
history, but one which nevertheless never lost its con- 
tact and kinship with the minds, hearts, and souls of 
the mass of men ; which never found difficulty in its 
instinctive understanding of the thoughts, hopes, and 
aspirations of the average man. Finally, these papers 
throw the strongest possible light on the political 
events of their period of American history, and in 
that light the study of history is simplified and 

Review. That is good news, but if it would equal 
the Yale Review under the editorship of Professor 
Wilbur L. Cross it will have to do well, indeed. That 
publication has become more and more valuable. In 
Foreign Affairs, the new quarterly to deal with in- 
ternational problems, we have a venture which can 
be made of great use, if under the editorship of 
Archibald Cary Coolidge, of Harvard, it is kept free 
from any bias, and its foreign collaborators are 
chosen with discrimination. Untortunately, it started 
wrongly by filching its name from the admirable 
Foreign Affairs of E. D. Morel, M. P. — despite pro- 
tests, we are told. That the Century Magazine, under 
its new editorship, is making rapid progress, is known 
to the journalistic fraternity, and it will soon be 
recognized, we trust, by the public at large. Finally, 
we would welcome an admirable new venture in the 
South, The Journal of tSocial Forces, edited by a group 
of North Carolina professors, with Professor Howard 
W. Odum, one of the most progressive and outspoken 
of the younger southerners, as managing editor. No- 
where more than in the South is there need for such 
a publication. If it can succeed it will go far to 
answer the charge that literary work and high-grade 
journalism are impossible under the present condition 
of intellectual thraldom in the South — The Nation, 
Jan. 24, 1923. 

A Yale alumnus living in North Carolina has given 
to the University Library the six-volume set entitled 
How America Went to War, by Benedict Crowell, 
the Assistant Secretary of War and Director of Mu- 
nitions, 1917-192U, and Robert Forest Wilson, for- 
merly Captain, U. S. A. The gift was made through 
the publishers, the Yale University Press. There is 
no clue to the name of the donor other than that he 
is an alumnus of Yale now living in North Carolina 
who wishes that this monumental record of America's 
participation in the World War shall be placed in 
the hands of the University student body. 

The set consists of six royal octavo volumes, bear- 
ing the four sub-titles The (iiant Hand ; The Road to 
France; the Armies of Industry; and Demobiliza- 
tion; and was published to quote the dedicatory in- 
scription ' ' In commemoration of the work of the eight 
thousand Yale men who took part in the World War 
1914-1918." Each volume contains a beautiful half- 
tone frontispiece and the set as a whole is profusely 
illustrated with photographs from the collections of 
the War and Navy departments. The typography 
and letter press are examples of the very best print- 
ing art. Altogether, the gift is a most splendid one 
and will be one of the most distinctive acquisitions of 
the Library of the year.

Dr. John W. Harris, A.B., 1911, A.M. 1912, now 
Associate in Obstetrics, Johns Hopkins University, 
and Assistant Visiting Obstetrician in the Johns Hop- 
kins Hospital, is a well known specialist who com- 
bines teaching, hospital practice, and investigation. 
His latest researches deal with Pregnancy and Labor 
in young Primaparae (Johns Hopkins Hospital Bul- 
letin, Jan. 1922) and with A Study of the Results ob- 
tained in sixty-four Caesarean Sections (Johns Hop- 
kins Hospital Bulletin, Sept. 1922). 




Fifty of the 140 University alumni now residing in 
Washington City met on the evening of February 
26th at the Garden Tea House, 1012 Vermont Avenue, 
banqueted, exchanged greetings, and began the con- 
sideration of ways and means of supplying the fac- 
ulty committee on grounds with money with which 
to carry out their plans of beautifying and adorning 
the University campus — grounds, walks, driveways, 
shrubbery, parks, etc. 

Dr. W. H. Atkinson, President of the Washington 
Alumni Association, and chairman of the committee 
which has this important work in charge, presided. 
He told of how the Washington alumni had presented 
the need of adorning the campus at the June 1922 
meeting of the General Association, and had received 
its sanction, and emphasized the importance of the 
project being carried through. 

Dr. W. C. Coker, chairman of the faculty com- 
mittee on buildings and grounds of the University 
and Director of the Arboretum, told completely of 
the plans his committee has for carrying out the sys- 
tematic development of the campus, parks and drive- 
ways, asserting that the Carolina campus is naturally 
one of the most beautiful in the world. 

Secretary Grant of the General Association also 
spoke, emphasizing the importance of this sort of 
work at this particular point in the State's and Uni- 
versity's development. "By successfully carrying 
through this project this group of alumni has a dis- 
tinct opportunity to render a distinct service, with- 
out violating in the least the principle of State sup- 
port," he declared. 

Other speakers were Honorable C. L. Abernethy, 
Dr. Thomas Ruffin and Judge Elder Little. Every- - 
one endorsed most heartily the project and pledged 

The other members of the committee appointed by 
the General Association are Prof. A. H. Patterson, 
Chapel Hill, and Mr. Leslie Weil, Goldsboro. 


Louis Graves, '02, professor of journalism in the 
University, has established a town newspaper called 
The Chapel Hill Weekly. It is devoted niainly to the 
affairs of the town and the county but also publishes 
the most important University news in condensed 

Members of Mr. Graves' journalism class will be 
among the contributors to the Weekly. He hopes to 
use it as a means of valuable training. 

There have already been several issues, the first 
having appeared Thursday, March 1. There are edi- 
torials each week, and a column of comment by Hali- 
fax Jones. 

"It has seemed to me a long time," Mr. Graves 
said the other day, "that there was a place for such a 
newspaper. It does not invade the province of the 
Tar Heel or any other University publication, al- 
though of course the University, being so large a part 
of Chapel Hill, receives attention. Important ath- 
letic events, and the chief incidents in University life, 
are reported. 

"At the North Carolina Press Association conven- 
tion in January I heard a great deal of discussion of 
weekly newspaper problems, and the talk there stimu- 

lated my desire to start a paper in Chapel Hill* In 
the matter of subscription price I have followed what 
seems to be the most approved practice among the 
weeklies and put it at $1.50 a year. 

"Thus far I am making the news entirety local — 
about Chapel Hill and the rest of Orange County. A 
great many alumni are subscribing, which indicates 
that they are eager to know what goes on in the 


Rev. Douglas L. Rights, of Winston-Salem, presi- 
dent of the class of 1913, sends the following message 
to his classmates in regard to the big ten year reunion 
of this class to be held at commencement : 

' ' Encouraging reports have been coming in from 
the grads of 1913. It seems that the ten year reunion 
stands in high favor. Every man who says, "I'll be 
with you, boys, in June," is adding stimulus to the 
great event, so let Wiggins, Rankin, or the class presi- 
dent know that you are coming. 

"Why not see the whole commencement through? 
There will be enough new buildings and improve- 
ments to call for a day or two of inspection. The com- 
mencement program is a treat we do not often enjoy. 
Best of all there await us the home coming and the 
renewal of friendships, both with the boys who are 
scarred with the ten year struggle out in the world, 
and with Carolina, our unfailing friend and inspirer 
to higher things. We will look for you, so do not 
disappoint us." 


At the meeting of the Trustees Building Committee 
held in Chapel Hill March 20-21, Mr. John Sprunt 
Hill was elected chairman of the committee in place 
of the late Col. J. Bryan Grimes. The committee, 
while in session, heard representatives of the 
Woman's Association who presented a request for a 
woman's building, and considered other problems in- 
volved in the general building program for the bien- 

Another meeting will be held in the near future in 
connection with the Executive Committee of the Trus- 
tees, at which plans will be formulated to present 
later to the full Board. 


The Graham house in Battle's Grove, occupied by 
the late Edward K. Graham, before he became presi- 
dent of the University, and for the past two years 
the home of Professor W. S. Bernard, was burned at 
noon on March 9th. Fire originated on the roof, sup- 
posedly from a spark, and the entire attic and upper 
floor were burned before the fire was extinguished.

large reproductions of photographs, and is of great 
interest to North Carolinians.

Service Medal by the War Department. 
The citation reads: "As commanding 
officer of the 113th Field Artillery dur- 
ing its organization, training and active 
operations in the St. Mihiel and Meuse- 
Argonne offensives, he displayed tireless 
energy, great resourcefulness and mili- 
tary attainments of a high order. By 
his skillful and energetic handling of his 
regiment he rendered the maximum sup- 
port to the infantry to which he was at- 
tached so effectively that he aided ma- 
terially in the successes achieved by our 
troops in those important engagements."

The place to meet your friends when 
in the Capital Oily 


has a pull 


Let US FACE frankly this question 
of "Pull." 

It does exist in business. The Pres- 
ident of a Company hires the son 
of a trusted friend. Why? Not 
merely because the young man is 
the son of a friend; but because the 
President believes that good blood 
will tell. 

A North Carolina graduate, who 
is a general manager, hires a North 
Carolina graduate as an assistant. 
Why? Not merely because the 
younger man is a North Carolina 
man, but because the general man- 
ager believes that training will tell. 

IN Cincinnati the Board of Directors of a financial institution was 
considering several men for the position of Vice President and 
General Manager. The successful applicant — the man who now holds 
that coveted position — has written an account of his interview with 
the Board of Directors. 

"I stated my experience," he writes, "and added that I 
had completed the Modern Business Course of the Alexander 
Hamilton Institute. 

"I then learned that several members of the Board were 
subscribers to the Institute. They evidently knew that the 
knowledge obtained from the Course and Service gives a man 
a thoro grasp of the controlling forces of business, and fits 
him to hold a responsible executive position. At any rate, 
I was selected ..." 

There are men in Cincinnati who say of this man: "He has a 
pull with the Directors." They are right. But the "pull" is a perfectly 
legitimate one. The Directors, who owe a part of their success to the 
training of the Alexander Hamilton Institute, picked him because they 
believed that the same training had made him a man whose judgment 
they could trust. 

This does not mean that every man who completes the Institute 
Course is "taken care of" in business. Business does not "take care 
of" anybody. It does mean, however, that with the knowledge and 
self-confidence that this training gives, you have an added asset — a

Quincy Sharpe Mills, North Carolinian 

After rising from obscurity to high success in ten years, this bril- 
liant young editorial writer of The Evening Sun, of New York, was 
killed in an attack on the German lines in July of 1918. 

Now a rarely appealing memoir of him has been brought out by 
Putnam's. It tells of Mills' boyhood, his college days in Chapel Hill, 
his struggles in New York, and finally his experiences in the Army. 
The volume contains letters that give an unusually vivid picture of the 

No North Carolinian — especially no alumnus of the University,
