THOMAS STEPHEN KENAN, '57 
President of the General Alumni Association, i8g2-'3-ign- , i2 



Thomas Stephen Kenan, one of the best known and 
most loved of the Alumni of the University, died at 
his home in Raleigh on December 23rd, 191 1. For 
more than thirty years Colonel Kenan was a Trustee of 



ton and Kinston. It then returned to the arm-. 
Northern Virginia ami was assigned to 
ion. With this division Colonel Kenan joined in the 
memorable Pennsylvania campaign in June, 1 



the University, for twenty-five years a member of the Throughout the three days' righting at Gettysbu 



Executive Committee, and for twenty years President 
of the General Alumni Association. 

Colonel Kenan was born at Kenansville, N. C, Dup- 
lin County, on February 12th, 1838, being the son of 
Owen R. and Sarah Graham Kenan. He attended 
school at the Old Grove Academy as a student of the 
Reverend James M. Sprunt. From Old Grove Acad- 
emy he went to Central Military Institute at Selma, 
Alabama, where he was prepared for college. 

In 1853 he matriculated at Wake Forest College. 
Finishing his freshman year in 1854, he entered the 
sophomore class at the University of North Carolina, 
where he was graduated with the degree of A.B. in 
1857. The following year he obtained from the 
University the degree of A.M. He then studied law 
under Chief Justice Pearson and began the practice of 
law at Kenansville. 

In 1859, upon the formation of the Duplin Rifles, 
Col. Kenan was elected Captain, and at the beginning 
of the Civil War he and the company under his com- 
mand were assigned to the First Bethel Regiment, 
and afterwards to the Second North Carolina Volun- 
teers under Col. Solomon Williams, which, upon the 
reorganization of the North Carolina troops, became 
the Twelfth Regiment of North Carolina State troops. 

Captain Kenan, with his company, saw service at 
Wilmington and Smithville under General French. He 
was afterward moved to Virginia and participated in 
the James River campaign and the battles around 
Richmond. 

His personal popularity and military knowledge 
soon led to his election to the colonelcy of the 38th 
Regiment upon its reorganization in April 1862, but he 
did not accept this promotion. Later he was elc> ted 
Colonel of the 43rd Regiment of Daniel's Brigade. 

In December, 1862, and the early part of [863, the 
43rd Regiment under Colonel Kenan took part in the 
movements around Goldsboro, New Bern, Washing- 



Colonel Kenan fought with great bravery, ami 
carried from the field wounded on the third day while 
leading a charge against the main line of the enemy. 

On the retreat following Gettysburg he v 
ured with other wounded Confederates and taken 
Federal Hospital at Frederick City, ami tl 
Baltimore. He was taken to Johnson's Island in Aug- 
ust, 1863, and kept there until March, when lie 
was paroled. Being on parole he could not rejoin his 
former command but attempted to keep in touch with 
the army until Johnson's surrender. 

After the war Colonel Kenan returned to Kenans- 
ville and resumed the practice of law. 1 [e was a mem- 
ber of the General Assembly in [865 and 
where his courage, coolness, and wisdom were inval- 
uable in shaping the difficult and delicate legislation 
of the period. In 186S he was the Democratii andi- 
date for Congress in the Duplin District bul

a large population of newly enfranchised 1 
Soon after this he removed to Wilson, was 1: 
mayor of the town, and inaugurated a policy that did 
much to make Wilson one of the most pro 
towns in the State. In the -.aim- year, t868, he mar 
ried Miss Sallie Dortch, a worthy helpmeet who made 
his married life ideal. She survives him.

ment or a meeting of the Trustees until confined by 
his last sickness. For a generation his delightful pres- 
ence graced each annual meeting and his kindly smile 
was a fond greeting, almost a benediction, to many 
University men. 

Of gentle dignity, modest, unassuming, with refined 
and elegant manners, anxious to do unselfish, loving 
service, he was of the finest product of the old South. 
Remarkably handsome, cultured, genial and full of 
sympathy and friendship, he won the love of all who 



came in personal touch with him. Of lofty ideals, 
strong character, high aspirations, he inspired his asso- 
ciates and elevated the community in which he lived. 
The soul of honor, able, pure, and patriotic, he magni- 
fied every position he occupied and enjoyed to the full 
the entire confidence of his people. 

Of distinguished lineage he was worthy of it, and by 
his life and sen-ices he added honor to an honored 



name.

THE GENERAL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 



Its Plan of Organization- 
Inquiries from a number of University men, espe- 
cially from those who have not been present at recent 
commencements, have been made concerning the plan 
of organization of the General Alumni Association 
and what the Association has done to date. The in- 
quiries indicate a wide-spread interest in all that the 
Association contemplates doing and are worthy of an 
answer. 

Prior to 191 1, the organization of the Association 
was extremely loose and the annual meeting at com- 
mencement was one at which acquaintanceships were 
renewed and the pleasures of commencement were par- 
ticipated in rather than one in which constructive pol- 
icies looking to the welfare of the University were 
formulated. Definiteness of purpose was wholly lack- 



ing. 



Feeling the imperative need of the hearty support 
and co-operation of the alumni, and desiring that the 
Association might be brought into active work for the 
upbuilding of the University, President Venable, in 
response to suggestions coming from many quarters, 
appointed in 1909 Professors W. S. Bernard, H. M. 
YYagstaft and Palmer Cobb, as a special committee on 
alumni organizations, to consider plans for bringing 
about a more purposeful organization and to submit 
a report on its findings to the alumni at a later date. 

After investigating the matter carefully, the com- 
mittee formulated a plan and presented it in an open 
letter to the alumni on October 12th, 1910, and asked 
that it be studied carefully in order that intelligent 
action might be taken concerning it on Alumni day, 
1911. 

On Monday, May 29th, 191 1, at the annual meeting, 
the report was formally laid before the Association. 
It was considered carefully, and after being amended 
as to the method of electing officers, a committee was 
named by the chair to determine the voting represen-

tation of the various local associations, to fix the num- 
ber of the councilmen, and to nominate them. The 
Association then unanimously re-elected Col. Thomas 
S. Kenan as President and heard the report of the 
committee which it immediately adopted. 

The plan as amended, modified, and adopted, which 
is now the plan of organization by which the Associa- 
tion is governed, is as follows: 

There shall be a General Assembly of the alumni 
which shall convene annually in Gerrard Hall on M01 
day of Commencement week. This General Assembly 
shall be composed of delegates from the local alumni 
Associations, having the right of voting upon the fol- 
lowing basis of representation :

the General Assembly. In 1912 the first 5 of the above 
15 shall be retired, in 1913 the second 5, and 101 } the 
third 5, and so on. 

The Alumni Council shall elect its own officers

The Alumni Council shall manage all the busin<

power of initiation of policies independent of instruc- 
tions; the power to raise, invest, and appropriate all 
funds; charge of the organization and direction of the 
Local Associations; of the publication of a magazine 
to be known as The University of North Carolina 
Alumni Monthly; the care of collecting historical and 
biographical data concerning the alumni ; of dissemi- 
nating knowledge which involves the good of the 
University; and other functions such as will suggest 
themselves. 

The Councilmen placed in nomination by the com- 
mittee and elected by the Association were: \V. S. 
Bernard, Chapel Hill; W. H. Swift, Greensboro ; V. L. 
Stephenson, Charlotte; R. H. Sykes, Durham; J. Y. 
Joyner, Raleigh; one year. Robert Bingham, Ashe- 
ville; Hayden Clement, Salisbury; W. J. Andrews, 
Raleigh; J. C. B. Ehringhaus, Elizabeth City; A. S. 
Barnard, Asheville; two years. D. B. Teague, Rae- 
ford; J. K. Wilson, Elizabeth City; P. D. Gold, Ral- 
eigh; T. D. Warren, New Bern; J. O. Carr, Wilming- 
ton; three years. 

The Council met in the Library Tuesday morning 
and elected the following officers : Chairman, Robert 
Bingham, Asheville; Temporary Secretary, W. S. Ber- 
nard, Chapel Hill ; Treasurer, J. Y. Joyner, Raleigh. 
It then entered upon a discussion of its functions and 
duties, and decided unanimously that the most urgent 
need for the time was a capable and enthusiastic man 
in the field to undertake the organization of the 
alumni into local Associations and to raise funds 
necessary to prosecute the further work of the Alumni 
Council. At the solicitation of the members of the 
Council, Councilman W. II. Swift, of Greensboro, 
consented to undertake this work until October 12th. 
He was at once elected an officer of the Council with 
the title of Field Manager. 

The chairman, on motion, instructed Mr. Swift and 
Mr. Bernard to prepare a general letter setting forth 
facts of the organization of the Council and an outline 
of the work proposed, to be mailed at the discretion 
of Field Manager Swift. The Council then adjourned 
to meet at the call of the chairman on some day be- 
tween the 20th of September and the 12th of October. 
1911. 

On Monday, June 3rd, 1912, immediately after the 
luncheon, the first business session of the General 
Assembly, under the new form of organization, was 
held. Delegates representing local Associations were 
present with Col. Robert Bingham, chairman of the 
Council, presiding, and Walter Murphy as General 
Secretary.

Alumni Council, was read and r< The prin- 

cipal work accomplished by the Council, a Eorth 

in the report, was the placing in the field of \\ . 11.

alumni, and later, \\ alter Murphy, oi 
permanent secretary. As a result of th< 
these men a number of local Associations had b 
organized, or visited, and a splendid spirit of hi 
fulness and helpfulness had been called forth from 
the alumni. .More than $1,000 had been rai

the outlook for a united, working body of alumni 
very promising. Air. Murphy's report was formally 
received, and later, after the election of offii >m- 

mendations contained in it were adopted by the 
Assembly. 

Upon the report of the Committee on Nominal 
Gen. Julian S. Carr, of Durham, was unanimously 
elected president, and Messrs. J. Y. Joyner, R. II. 
Sykes, George Stephens. \\ . If. Swift, and W. S. B

a period of three years, to fill the vacant

the Assembly voted to establish and publish an Alumni 
Monthly or Bulletin, and to this end name' om-

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



UNIVERSITY DAY 

The University and Alumni Celebrate the 119th Birthday 



Greetings of loyalty and love from a host of far 
scattered sons; messages of confidence from return- 
ing representatives of the younger purposeful alumni ; 
the presence of a student body of eight hundred 
young men, open minded to the finer influences of the 
century-old spirit of the place, together with the return 
of members of classes from '49 (Ex-President Battle) 
to 1912; and the victory over Wake Forest in the after- 
noon, contributed to the making of October 12, 1912, 
one of the most significant of all the celebrations of 
University Day. 

The day's exercises began at 10:45 o'clock when 
the procession of alumni, faculty, and students, under 
the direction of Chief Marshal Raper, formed in line 




President Venabu; axd Ex-President: Battle

in front of Alumni hall and marched to Memorial hall. 

Ex-President Battle and President Venable, followed 

by the alumni speakers, headed the long, impressive 

line. 

Within Memorial hall the invocation was offered by 
Rev. W. D. Moss and the University Hymn was sung. 
President Venable, in his introductory remarks, ex- 
pressed as a hope for the future University, a marked 
growth in power and service and an exhibition of all 
that is fine, worthy and high. His annual report of 
registration showed that the total number of students 
in all departments was 817. Divided into classes these 
figures represent the enrollment: Freshman, 285; 
sophomore. 157; junior, 87; senior, 75; graduates, 23; 
law, 118; medical, 53; pharmacy, 30. 

President Venable then read the list of letters and 
telegrams received up to that hour from scattered 
sons and friends — the birthday greetings sent back out 
of loyalty and love to the University. The list in- 
clude: Dr. Eben Alexander, Knoxville, Tenn. ; Supt. 



J. N. Daily, Montgomery, Texas; Dr. Joseph Hyde 
Pratt, Asheville, N. C. ; Prof. N. C. Curtis, Tulane

W. II. Swift, '01, the first speaker of the day, spoke 
on the "Relation of an Alumnus to the State." He 
said, by way of introduction, that the older sons of the 
University, if they could stand where he stood at that 
moment and could look into the faces of the eight hun- 
dred boys before him, would have no fear that they as 
graduates and as alumni in later years, would meet all 
the obligations inherent in the relation. 

Speaking more particularly of this relation, he said: 
"Every man of us who has been here or who is here, 
by the very fact of his being here, is indebted to every 
human being in North Carolina for his education. 
This is a State institution. There is nothing else to 
support it. except probably the few dollars that are 
paid for tuition. With that exception, every dollar 
used in its support is taken from the taxes of the State. 
This is done that the entire State may be benet'r 
For this reason, the State has a right to expect from 
you more than she does from any other College men 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



in North Carolina, because she has invested her money 
in you." 

After emphasizing the nature of this obligation on 
the part of the student, Mr. Swift pointed out how it 
might be met — by rallying to the calls of the State in 
the solution of all its vexing problems and in rendering 
it a full, vital service. 

W. P. Stacy, '08, of Wilmington, spoke on the 
"Things that Count in the Greater University." These 
requisites he declared to be strong character; clear, 
right thinking; hard work in a good cause; and right- 
eousness. Maintaining the similiarity of life on the 
campus and out in the larger world, he urged that men 
at the University should cultivate in their student days 
those virtues which characterize the true man out in 
life. North Carolina expected nothing other of men 
from the University than the very highest excellence 
in these particulars. 

J. K. Wilson, '05, of Elizabeth City, introduced by 
President Venable as the "youngest trustee of the 
University," spoke on "Complancency or Idealism" as 
evidenced in the attitude of the University to its past 
and its future. He took pride in the fact that since 
he first knew the University, it had grown remarkably, 
but while doing that, he realized that it had not availed 
itself of all the opportunities of service lying open to 
it. He voiced what has been a growing sentiment in 
the State for several years that the University should, 
like the University of Wisconson, spend itself more 
directly in the service of the people. In solving the 
problems of public health, in bringing about better 
methods of taxation, in giving expert advice to town- 
ships and counties engaged in the construction of high- 
ways, in carrying literature on all kinds of every day, 
actual problems, to any citizen in the State who might 
be in need of special information — in doing all those 
helpful, needed things embraced under the head of 
intelligent "University Extension," he urged the Uni- 
versity to have a larger part. 

George Stephens, '96, of Charlotte, hero of many a 
baseball game back in the nineties and one of the most 
loyal of the University's sons, discussed the question 
of athletics. His introduction caught the student body. 
"The subject that has been assigned to me is one that 
more people know more about than perhaps any other 
subject in this country today. As I came down on the 
train, I took occasion to buy a daily newspaper and I 
found that two and one-half pages were devoted to 
athletics and only two columns to the presidential elec- 
tion. In one of the editorials of this same paper was an 
extract from a speech delivered last Wednesday by 



Governor Woodrow \\ ilson in which he apologized fur 
asking the people tor nine iu listen to him discuss 
issues during the week 111 which a world champion- 
ship series were being played!" 

Speaking further Mr. Stephens said: ' I e that 

the question of athletics is and must be m e of 

the principal assets ol tins University in order to , 
pace with the activities of other colleges, and it must 
be promoted on the part of its alumni. 

"If 1 were to be asked to analyze the athletics 
institution like this, I should say that it could 
divided into two parts: technical knowk hich 

amounts to about one-tenth and can be learned b) .. 
body, and nine-tenths fight, not in the pugihsti 
but in a sense of a high co-ordination 01 body, n 
and spirit, that does not know when to stop." 

Pointing out the fact that athletics brought the Uni- 
versity more publicity than any other lonn of its 
activities, and that it served as the bond which I 
the alumni most closely to it, Mr. Stephens urged that 
the University make capital of this fact. This, he- 
was confident, could best be done by adopting a system 
of alumni coaching. His high opinion oi tins system, 
both as a means of holding ttie interest of the alumni 
and of developing the right kind of spirit m the teams, 
came as a result of investigation and discu the 

subject with the alumni all over the State. \\ hile tins 
was true, however, he held that it would take lime to 
make the change, but the change when once n. 
would result in great benefit to the University. 

Victor S. Bryant, '90, of Durham, to whom the 
mittee on arrangements had assigned no special topic, 
presented in a speech that appealed to the 
thought of the alumni and the faculty, the , 
the University in the past twenty-five 
ing that "the keeping of the institution rested with the 
faculty and students," he contrasted the Univei 
the middle eighties with that of today and showed that

and faculty, hail merited support, it had 1 it

maintaining its integrity, in working harmoniously at 
home for the common good of the State, and respond- 
ing to the demands which the State made upon it, the 
University had prospered. 

W. S. Bernard, 'oo, told of the plans for The 
Alumni Review. It was to carry the news of the 
University to the alumni; to bring back news from 
them to the University; and to keep alumni in touch 
with each other. In order that it might succeed in its 
work, Mr. Bernard urged that all alumni should think 
of it as their open forum for the discussion of Univer- 



sity matters and to give it their heartiest financial sup- 
port. 

Frank Graham, '09, of the Uaw Class, was the last 
speaker and represented the student body. He made 
an earnest, telling appeal on behalf of the University 
Council for mutual trust among the students and for 
a saner, cleaner life on the campus. 

The singing of the "Song of the Alumnus" and the 
pronouncing of the benediction by Rev. \\ . A. Stan- 
bury, of Chapel Hill, concluded the exercises. 



A NORTH CAROLINA TEACHER 

By E. K. GRAHAM, '98.* 



To men in every profession now and then come 
doubts as to the real productiveness of their work. 
Prof. Barrett Wendell said (or is reported to have 
said) sometime ago to a promising student that he 
should avoid the profession of teaching because "it is 
a sterile field." One virtue at least distinguishes this 
judgment of Professor Wendell's: It frankly avoids 
the cant that so often marks the talk about teaching 
and other noble and (consequently) poorly paid pro- 
fessions. A North Carolina teacher several years ago 
raised a small storm in the State by a judgment sim- 
ilar in frankness : that the teachers in the State need 
not be indignant at their small wages — that most of 
them got as much as they are worth. To judge a 
man's worth is often very difficult. In business it is 
fairly easy; in medicine it is somewhat more difficult; 
in teaching it is more difficult still. Effects there are 
not so quickly and obviously related to their causes. 
If it were possible to innoculate a man with the bi- 
nomial theorem and Browning and have him break 
out the next day or the next week with dollar bills 
or a case of bankruptcy, judgment would be easy. 
And for better and worse teachers would get more 
accurately what they are worth. Straight-thinking 
teachers do well to find and to speak the naked truth 
about their profession, but he is a sadly astray guide 
who calls teaching "a sterile field." That will not be 
true until pliable humanity is worn down to a breed 
of barren metal. Experience reveals a different dis- 
play of facts. Few of the achievements of men have 
been solitary triumphs. They were first laid with 
words of grateful dicipleship at the feet of some 
teacher. 

•Reprinted from the North Carolina Review, Feb.. 1911. 



The sterility of a field depends as much on the hus- 
bandman as it does on the field, and a greater variety 
of conditions surround the fruitful cultivation of men 
than surround the successful cultivation of the soil. 
The productiveness of teaching in Massachusetts may 
not be as obvious, though it may be just as real as it 
is in North Carolina; it may not be as obvious in the 
work of one teacher in Harvard as it is in that of 
another. Professor George H. Palmer, for instance, 
a colleague of Professor Wendell's, has said that if 
for any reason Harvard College could not pay him 
for teaching he would gladly pay Harvard College 
for letting him teach. This confession wakes a clear 
echo in the heart of every true teacher, and bears with 
it stimulating assurance of productiveness. The ex- 
perience of Dr. Thomas Hume, Professor Emeritus of 
English Literature in the University of North Caro- 
lina, is an illuminating example of the somewhat puz- 
zling rewards of the profession of teaching. For 
him all active work is done. At its finish he funis 
himself with no accumulation of wealth, nor other vis- 
ible accumulation. His influence is not apparent from 
a casual glance at present educational work. Shall 
one say, then, that teaching was to him "a sterile 
field?" 

In 1885, when Dr. Hume came to the University, 
conditions surrounding teaching in the State were not 
so favorable as they are now. They were especially 
unfavorable to the teaching of English Literature. The 
State was to wait five years for the great educational 
campaign of the '90's. Mclver was at that time a 
teacher of English in Peace Institute; Alderman had 
just begun his public school work in Goldsboro; Joy-

ner was a teacher in the Winston schools; Aycock's 
educational activity was entirely local. 

And even when this awakening movement was un- 
der way the impetus of its enthusiasm was necessarily 
along fundamental lines. It was for a wider intelli- 
gence and a higher intelligence among the people. 
Its message was primarily a message of efficiency. Its 
compelling word was to men as workers. It said to 
agriculture and commerce — your fight will end in 
tragic defeat unless you can use your head as well as 
your hands. To know in order to do was its winning 
battle cry. It put enthusiasm into many branches of 
learning, but it put less into literature than into any 
of the rest. Literature, as such, has nothing to say 
on this matter of the utility of knowledge. It deals 
with fine feeling rather than effective knowing, an.1 
views men not merely as capable of doing successful 
work, but as capable of enjoying the noblest emotions. 
In the face of the difficulties that confront every 
teacher of the aesthetic, and the peculiar difficulties 
that confronted him, Dr. Hume wrought at his task 
of teaching the masterpieces of literature with the 
zeal of a prophet. Literature (whenever he wrote the 
word he capitalized it) was to him not a chance pro- 
fession ; it was a religious faith. The beauty he found 
there was not the sentimentalism of a cult ; it was the 
gift of God, co-equal with truth and with goodness— 
the heavenly light that was the consecration of the 
monotonous struggle to get on. The prophetic earnest- 
ness with which he revealed his vision made him not 
a little absurd (a sure effect of greatly earnest men) 
to many of the absurd youths he taught; but under 
all discouragements he never faltered in his faith, and 
not one youth, however absurd, failed to take out into 
his life something of the divine fire that inspired Dr. 
Hume. 

During most of the sixteen years in which he served 
the State, Dr. Hume in his field worked almost alone. 
Alone in what was by all odds the largest department 
in the University he placed but one limit on the num- 
ber of courses he taught and that was the number of 
hours in the day. Day and night he gave himself to 
active instruction. In addition, he organized Shakes- 
peare clubs out in the State, lectured in summer 
schools, preached in churches, in fact, put no reserve 
whatever upon his time or his strength. It was a 
matter of everyday wonder how so frail a man had 
the burden-bearing power of a superman. But here 
was the simple secret: To him it was not a burden, 
but a joy. It gave him the chance to teach! And 
now that weakness remorsely holds him to his room 



when the long, long thoughts that are the heritage of 
age as well as the promise of youth, come to him, 
I question if thought of gratitude on the part of the 
State for the strength spent in her service ever crosses 
his mind. Gratitude to the State, on the contrary, 
no doubt he feels that he was given worthy work to 
do — that gracious benediction of a fruiiful life no 
doubt he feels and nothing more. 

Besides the influence that Dr. Hume exerted on all 
his students, on the thousands of people with whom 
he came in contact in his extension work and through 
his preaching, he made other leaders of sweetness 
and light in whose work his influence is especially ob- 
vious. Many successful teachers, themselves makers 
of teachers, many successful preachers and lawyers 
have added a grace to their lives that was kindled at 
the torch that he bore. He was never a writer of 
books, but he was a maker of writers of books. A 
half dozen books come to mind in which he was in 
this indirect way a joint author. On my desk lies 
Dr. Herman Home's most recent book, "Idealism in 
Education," perhaps the most notable book of die 
past year by a North Carolinian. Dr. Home ac-

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



knowledges another great North Carolina teacher as 
his master, but the style by which his scholarship is 
distinguished he owes in large part to Dr. Hume, and 
much no doubt of the idealism that characterizes his 
thinking. Dr. Hume's mind is as alert, as eager, and 
as interested as ever, although his body under the 
whip of his spirit has paid barely less than full toll. 
From a material viewpoint, teaching has been to 
him ''a sterile field ;" but the fine thing is that he stands 
quite clearly and unconsciously above the material 
viewpoint. The cessation of work does not mark the 
end of his influence, nor do the four walls of his room 



limit its sphere. As a teacher of men it was given 
to him to subdue the petty tyranny of time and space. 
Is it not possible to say simply and with certitude about 
such a teacher that life gives to him her greatest gift; 
that even while he lives immortality becomes to him a 
visible, a realized fact? 
"The stream which overflowed the souls was passed 

away, 
A consciousness remained that it had left 
Deposited upon the silent shore 
Of memory images and precious thoughts 
That shall not die, and cannot be destroyed." 



THE SUMMER SCHOOL OF 1912 
The Enrollment Reached 463 and Splendid Work Was Done 



The University Summer School, under the direction 
of Prof. N. W. Walker, was in session from June 11 
to July 20, with an attendance of 463 students, being by 
far the most largely attended session since 1877 



// 



when the University first began to give special instruc- 
tion in educational methods to North Carolina teach- 
ers. 

Director Walker was aided in the work by a capable,

hard-working faculty of twenty-one members drawn 
from the University and elsewhere, and the instruc- 
tion given in the forty-six courses offered was well 
received by the teacher-students. The dormitories, 
laboratories and libraries of the University were 
brought into use and all the resources of the Univer- 
sity were placed at the disposal of the makers of 
North Carolina schools. 

From the point of view of numbers, the growth in 
attendance is very interesting. In 1908 the enrollment 
was 53; in 1909, 76; in 1910, 99; in 191 1, 225; in 
1912, 463. Of those attending in 1912, 124 were men 
and 339 ladies. By far the largest group of these were 
teachers actively at work out in the state and those 
preparing to teach. They numbered respectively. 365 
and 51. Twenty-one were preparing to enter college 
and 26 were variously employed. There were 457 
students from North Carolina — all but six of those 
present — representing yy counties. 

Apart from the serious daily work of the term, sev- 
eral exceedingly attractive programmes were carried 
out and enjoyed by members of the school. On the 
Fourth of July all the school formed in front of 
Alumni Hall for the procession and exercises around 
the flag. Everyone in the line — 450 or more — wore 
sashes and rosettes in patriotic colors, and all the 
ladies were dressed in white. The group saluting the 
flag and singing the "Star-Spangled Banner" presented 
one of the most beautiful scenes ever witnessed on the 
campus and is to be remembered along with scenes of 
class day exercises out under the evening shadows 
of Davie Poplar. 

On the evening of the Fourth the Dramatic Club of 



the school presented the play "Ksther Wake," written 
and staged by Prof. A. Vermont, formerly of the 
University and now superintendent of the Smithfield 
Schools. The play was based upon incidents growing 
out of the administration of Gov. Tryon and the Battle 
of Alamance. Presented out in the open in front of 
the old vine-festooned library, it was beautifully 
staged and splendidly played to an audience of more 
than four hundred students and out-of-town visitors. 
Another feature of the term was the series of 
twenty or more special lectures by speakers not con- 
nected with the University. Among these visitors 
were Dr. P. P. Claxton, United States Commis- 
sioner of Education, and Dr. Charles DeGarmo, Pro- 
fessor of Educational Psychology at Cornell Univer- 
sity. Both were extremely suggestive and inspiring 
in their addresses. 

The most distinctive single feature of the term was 
the earnest, straightforward effort of the teachers to 
enlarge their professional equipment. The idea of 
merely attending lectures without studying did not 
evidence itself and the greater part of the student 
body remained throughout the entire six weeks and 
stood the examinations assigned by the State Board 
of Examiners for the various kinds of State certifi- 
cates and those required by the instructors in the 
school. Pleasures were not allowed to interfere with 
the regular duties in course and a spirit of work per- 
vaded the entire campus. The record of the school in 
this particular was exceedingly good, and it goes down 
in the history of the University as the best term to 
date. 



W. I. RAND MEETS DEATH WHILE BEING HAZED 
The Findings of the Faculty Investigation 



On the opening night of the college year, Mr. I. W. 
Rand, of Smithfield, N. C, a member of the freshman 
class, fell from a barrel, while being hazed by a group 
of sophomores, cut his jugular vein on a broken bot- 
tle, and bled to death. The detailed facts of this +ragie 
affair, and the subsequent events are known to most of 
the Alumni; they are briefly recounted here for the 
information of those who do not see the State papers. 

The four sophomores who composed the party that 
took young Rand and his room-mate out, were im- 
mediately arrested and bound over to court under 
$5,000 bail each. All gave bail to await trial at the 
October term of Orange superior court, at which the 



case was continued until March, 1913, on account of 
the illness of the presiding judge. 

The faculty of the University delegated seven of iis 
members to investigate this affair, and any other in- 
stances of hazing. This committee, after an exhaustive 
investigation, report'.. 1 eight men present in addition 
to the principals; it reported three instances of other 
hazing, and the names of some of the participants; it 
reported that, incidental to its investigation, it had dis- 
covered also several men who were guilty of particular- 
ly lawless conduct last spring, and who up to the time 
of this investigation, had been able to prevent dis- 
covery. The faculty, according to its custom, dismis-

vere active participants and suspended 
those spectators who were present through choice. 

\. a resull of their investigation into all of these 

affairs, the faculty dismissed four, in addition to the 

four under bond for trial and already expelled by the 

trustees, and suspended twelve others for one year. 

At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the 

rd of trustees, the action of the faculty was re- 

ved and endorsi 
Tin f President Venable to the students 

makes clear certain that have been in dispute, 

owing to a misunderstanding of the facts. Chiefly 
these are concerned with the so-called "hazing" of last 
spring. This was not so much hazing as it was out- 
rageous law luntenanced by no college cus- 
tom of any sort, committed in the village and subject 

riminal law. Investigation of it had not been drop- 
ped : the names f the guilty were discovered at this 
time, through the extraordinary stimulus to the con- 

nce of the community aroused by the death of Mr. 
Rand. For participation in this affair of last spring. 
one man was dismissed and three were suspended for 
their connection with it. Three of the others who were 
either dismissed or suspended were in it and the Rand 
affair also. 

The extracts from President Yenable's statement 
follow : 

"The University law forbids hazing in any form. I 
am well aware that the student definition oi hazing 
differs in varying groups of students and often widely 
from the interpretation of the faculty. The faculty 
cannot accept any other interpretation than their own. 
'Hazing in any form' is a broad phrase and covers 
everything from physical violence to any foolish hu- 
miliating performance which a gentleman would not 
willingly do in public under ordinary circumstances. 
The fact that it is done without resistance and on a 
simple request has no bearing on the matter. The 
young stranger may well believe that resistance would 
firing about something worse still 

" \gain. for many years the law of the faculty has 

luded among hazers those who aid and abet by their 

e, and a number of students have in past years 

been sent away or suspended for this; and the reasons 

"od and sufficient to both faculty and trusti 
for the latter body has approved this law. In the first 
place, it but follows the law of the land where a mem- 
ber of a mob is particeps criminis. Secondly, it is prac- 

ally impossible to draw an excusing line between 
those who are gathered in the room or at the door and 
the one or two who may be giving orders. All lend the 



compelling force of their presence. Just so all who go 
to or enter a room to get a freshman out or accompany 
a party to some outlying field really aid because their 
presence in superior numbers makes resistance futile. 
I think thai tins will be perfectly clear to every honest. 
thinking man. who knows anything of the circum- 
stances surrounding hazing. The punishment may 
vary in degree, and some of your comrades have re- 
cently been punished under this law. 
***** 

'The committee does not propose to enter upon the 
hopeless task of unearthing all breaches of the law that 
have taken place in the past. It took up the affair of 
last spring, however, because it was one of the most 
disgraceful affairs that has happened here, an offence 
against all laws. The investigation on the part of the 
town, the faculty, and the student council failed at the 
time. When a citizen of the town gave me information 
a few days after the coroner's inquest it was impera- 
tive to take the matter up again. Information was 
placed in the hands of other members of the faculty 

also. 

***** 

"I have repeatedly spoken to you of the co-opera- 
tion of government between the faculty and the stu- 
dent council, each working independently of the other 
In some cases the codes of the two differ, the students 
going as far as the best student sentiment will support 
them, the faculty creating student sentiment. The 
student council reports action to the faculty. It does 
not report names and testimony for faculty action. If 
it did. it would become merely a means of getting the 
students to give information on their fellows and 
would immediately fall into dishonor and usefulness. 

"It follows then, that both faculty and students may 
be. and often are. following an investigation at the 
same time; that eroneration by one does not neces- 
sarily mean escape from the other if the codes < litter, 
or if new evidence is obtained, and that an examina- 
tion dropped by one may at any time be taken up by 
the other if it is seen fit to do so.

"It is in some measure apparent to you all what tin 
L niversity has suffered in the estimation, respect and 
pride of the people of the State in the past few weeks. 
This humiliation of the institution that I have loved and 
labored for has depressed me beyond words. \du thai

THE PRESENT STATUS OF ATHLETICS 
"Nat" J. Cartmell Head Coach 



Excepting the question of eligibility of players 
which rests with the faculty athletic committee, ath- 
letic management at the University as the result of a 
forward move last year in the reorganization of the 
athletic association is now vested in an athletic council 
composed of the managers of football, baseball, 
basketball and track, the president of the athletic asso- 
ciation, the editor-in-chief of The Tar Heel, a stu- 
dent at large, and a member of the faculty. In this 
representative student athletic council under the ad- 




Coach Cartmell 



visement of one member of the faculty chosen by the 
council is concentrated the responsibility of electing 
the graduate manager, employing the coaches, and of 
shaping and directing the financial policy of athletics. 
The funds of the athletic association will be handled 
through Proctor C. T. Woollen, quasi-graduate man- 
ager. The home source of revenue is the newly insti- 
tuted five dollar fee for membership in the association 
which entitles each member to see every athletic con- 
test on the local grounds. With this more substantial 
financial basis and with concentrated responsibility in 
an efficient council to supplant what proved to be 
desultory, inexperienced, and unbusinesslike manage- 
ment, athletics at the University are on a foundation 
for gradual growth into greater effectiveness. 

Another forward move was the selection of N. J. 
Cartmell, the remarkably successful track coach, to be 
head coach of all university athletics. This selection 
won the confidence of the whole student body. The 
students have believed in "Nat" from the moment he 
came quietly into Chapel I I ill with the world's champ- 
ionship medals hidden away from eager eyes. The 
first year he wenl about his work simply and persist- 
ently to rebuild or rather to build an athletic activity 
of little consequence in point of interest or achieve- 
ment. With what was left over from other forms of 
athletics in his short stay here Cartmell has placed 
track above them all and has made Carolina a mightier 
name in South Atlantic athletics, twice winning the 
State meet and scoring second place last spring in the 
Southern meet at Baltimore. 

Cartmell is a native of Kentucky and a former resi- 
dent of Asheville. lie is a loyal alumnus of Pennsyl 
vania and a splendid product of Penn's wizard trainer. 
Mike Murphy. Not satisfied with American collegiate 
and amateur honors in the 100 and 220 dashes, he 
met Postle. the Australian world's champion, and 
lowered the world's record in the furlong. 

Cartmell is an unusual mixture of a man. The 



14 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



course of one day may find him as "Bloody Nat," the 
splendid animal on the cinder path, as the unconscious 
centre of an after-supper group about the postoffice, 
and as an appreciative listener that night to President 
Hadley's reconciliation of science and philosophy. 
There is something about this combination that goes, 
that attracts, that wins and inspires others to win. 
Give him two years and he will — wait and see! 

Cartmell is now under a two year contract to be 
head coach with power to select the special coaches in 
football and baseball subject to the approval of the 
council. This central coaching arrangement will save 
the association $1,000 a year which is not to be scorn- 
el in the face of a $2,500 debt. As football coach he 
selected Martin of Notre Dame, a player at end, in the 
line, and in the backfield under western and eastern 
coaches. His versatile ability and enthusiasm — but the 
season will tell the story of him. 

First chapter: Carolina 13, Davidson o. 



The present central coaching system taking the place 
of a system of annual change in systems is a prepara- 
tion for the gradual introduction of the alumni system. 
In spirit this is somewhat of an alumni system now. As 
a keen observer of Cartmell has well said : "He has 
more University spirit than many of you who get your 
diplomas in Memorial Hall. " Carolina is fortunate in 
having as head coach and trainer in all athletics such 
a believer in Carolina and lover of fair sport as the 
terrific Cartmell. 

Vitally instrumental both in the inauguration of the 
system of concentrated athletic management and in 
the selection of Cartmell as central coaching head has 
been Dr. James F. Royster, athletic advisor chosen by 
the students. On account of pressure of committee 
and department work Dr. Royster has had to give up 
his work as athletic advisor. In his place the council 
elected Dr. Charles H. Herty, devoted friend of 
University athletics. 



FOOTBALL 

The Season Starts Off With Two Victories 



Carolina 13, Davidson o 

Carolina opened her football season in Charlotte 
I Ictober the fifth by defeating Davidson College 13 
to o. Wakeley scored the first touchdown in the first 
quarter on a brilliant skirt around left end. Abernathy 
the younger pounded the line for the other score in 
the fourth quarter. Huske and Moore were most 
effective on defense. Booe and Graham of Davidson 
were dashing at times but never dangerous. The day 
was too hot for the heavy Carolina line and Davidson 
lacked her characteristic snap. 

The score is the largest that Carolina has made 
against Davidson since the days of the teams of 




Graves' and Jones'. In seven years the scores 
have included ties, victories of one touchdown, and one 
defeat — the only one in the long line of victories.

third quarter Wake Forest failed at a drop kick but 
scored a safety. Wake Forest outplayed Carolina in 
straight rushes from scrimmage and three times had 
the ball within the ten yard line. In the fourth quarter 
four plays from the five yard line failed to break Caro- 
lina's defense which strengthened magnificently under 
the goal posts. Wakeley of Carolina excelled in punts 
and Capt. Tillett's return of Riddick's spirals pre-

touchdown and Utley's sweeps around end featured 
a game that was disappointing to both teams.

Baseball Team 1912 



Annual Tennis Tournament 

The annual Varsity tennis tournament was started 
last week with fifteen entries. The first round and 
part of the second has been played off. The entries 
include Oats and Chambers, last year's team, who, 
however, are being closely pushed. Venable and 
Bailey, the team of two years ago, are both in college. 
Venable is not eligible though, and baseball will keep 
Bailey from playing in the spring. 

The first round resulted as follows: Oats beat King; 
Busby beat Smith ; Kennedy beat Lamb ; Cone beat 
Ragland; Long beat Strong by default; Chambers 
beat Hunter; Spence beat Royall. In the second 
round Chambers beat Long. Play should be finished 
this week. — Tar Heel, October 10th.

The Medical School Finds a Permanent Home 
Caldwell Hall, the new home of the University 
Medical School, whose formal dedicatory exercises 
on the evening of May 8th called to the University 
a large group of distinguished physicians and edu- 
cators, was completed in the summer and is now being 
found by the test of daily use to be one of the most 
thoroughly equipped medical laboratories in the 
South. It represents, in arrangement and equipment, 
the most careful thought of the Medical faculty, and 
stands as the first building provided for by the gener- 
ous appropriation of the legislature of 1911, fo'r per- 
manent improvements. It has been completed and 
equipped at a cost of $50,000 and makes possible a 
far better quality of work on the part of the Medical 
School than formerly. 

The naw building is located on the south side "of 
Cameron avenue opposite Davie Hall. Facing m 
the front wall of the main building is on a line with 
the rear of the Carr building. This location secures 
the north light in all of the laboratories used for 
microscopic work. 

In style of architecture the building approaches the 
classical Renaissance and consists of a main building

and a wing, each of two stories. The absence of 
ornamentation, its simplicity of design, and the large 
number of windows necessary for the proper light- 
ing of the various laboratories give prominence to the 
impression of utility and in this one finds its beauty. 

In planning and equipping this building the author- 
ities have had in mind the needs of the profession of 
the State not only in the proper training of those upon 
whom the responsibility of the health of the people of 
the State will ultimately fall, but in providing an op- 
portunity for those now engaged in active practice to 
pursue any line of investigation in the field of experi- 
mental medicine to which their interest or fancy may 
incline them. The Medical faculty, individually and 
collectively, will welcome the opportunity to assist 
them in any way in its power and cordially invites 
them to use the building for such purposes as they may 
wish. 

Gifts to the Library 

The Library has recently been the recipient of a 
number of gifts which have added materially to the 
value of its collection of books and newspapers relating 
to North Carolina. Among these, of which mention 
has not been made earlier in other University pub- 
lications, are the loan and gifts of Mr. W. Stamps 
Howard and Mrs. John L. Bridgers, both of Tarboro. 

Titles not formerly found in the Library have been 
added as follows : 

From the Howard collection: Miscellaneous Pub- 
lications printed by George Howard between the 
years 1824 and 1847; volumes 2-1 1 of the Primitive 
Baptist, published in Tarborough from 1837 to 1847; 
and 21 volumes of the Tarborough Free Press from 
1824 to 1851. 

From the Bridgers collection : The State Gazette 
of North Carolina, volume 5, published in Edenton in 
1790; volumes 3-5 of the Raleigh Star, published in 
Raleigh from 181 1 to 1813; almost a complete file of 
the Tarborough Southerner from its beginning to 
1882; four years of the Raleigh Daily Sentinel from 
1865 to 1868; five years of the Raleigh Register from 
1853 to 1857; and 24 volumes of the North Carolina 
Standard published in Raleigh prior to 1861. The 
collection contains 176 books and 93 bound news- 
papers. 



cer's Parliament of Poulcs." Dr. Manly is the author 
of "Specimens of Pre-Shakesperean Drama," "The 
Lost Leaf of Piers the Plowman," and many articles 
in philological journals. He has edited "Manly's 
Poetry" and "Manly's Prose," and is known by Eng- 
lish students to be one of America's most scholarly 
and stimulating teachers of English. 

Apart from the pleasure which it gave those who 
heard him, Dr. Manly's visit had a further meaning 
for the University. It helped to define and intensify 
the spirit of scholarly investigation which is growing 
at the University. \\ ith the development of the special 
seminar and graduate courses, and the steady strength- 
ening of the library, the atmosphere for scholarly en- 
deavor has deepened. Dr. Manly's coming gave fur- 
ther expression of the vitality of this atmosphere. 



Eleven Pharmacista Take Positiono 
Members of the School of Pharmacy who passed 
the State Board of Examiners in the Summer have 
taken positions in drug stores in the following places: 
T. H. May, Wake Forest; R. P. Rogers, Durham; 
H. H. Boon, Smithfield; W. L. Futrelle, Wilmington; 
G. E. Atwater, Waynesville; C. B. Rcinhardt, Ashe- 
ville; Leon Smith, Louisburg; K. E. Burnett, Bryson

The Y. M. C. A. Starts Off Well 
The Young Men's Christian Association has begun 
its work this Fall with bright prospects. The Com- 
mittee on New Students sent out letters and hand- 
books in the Summer to over three hundred high 
school students in the State who were prepared to 
enter college. Upon arrival at University Station. 
practically every new man was met by a committee 
from the Y. M. C. A., taken to the building on the 
campus, helped to register and get located. Over 
four hundred students were out at College Night 
where the various phases of University life were pre 
sented. Immediately after this an open reception was 
given in the Association house. This was largely at- 
tended, especially by the new men. The Self Help 
Committee has secured several positions for students 
who are partially working their way through college. 
Two hundred and ten students have been enrolled .1- 

membei of the Association. A complete canvass of 
all the students has nol yei been made. It is hoped 

that at least four hundred students will become mem- 
bers. After an effective Bible study rally two bun- 
dled and twenty students signed up for the Bible 
classes.

"Marsb" Jessb 

The story of "-Marse" Jesse's life at the University 
needs no telling. His "boys," as he called the students 
upon whom he waited, and hundreds of friends 
throughout the State, knew him too well to care for the 
details. They have an impression of him in the large — 
his faultless tact, his honest, open smile, his quaint, 
old-timey defference — and they know that at the sud- 
den hour of his passing he was loyal, true. God rest 
him from his labors.

BY WAY OF INTRODUCTION 

In establishing The Alumni Review the General 
Alumni Association of the University is following a 
natural course. The membership of the Association is 
large. It is growing. The interests of the University 
are varied. Its activities are extending in all direc- 
tions and its organization is becoming more and more 
complex. Without some medium of connection be- 
tween the alumni and the University, such as may be 
had through an official organ, the interests of the 
alumni and the University cannot be properly related 
and the University will suiter accordingly. 

Several objects, naturally, have been kept in view 
by the alumni in beginning this publication. The first 
of these is the carrying of news from the University 
to its scattered sons. The University is constantly 
working and every alumnus is interested in what it 
is doing. Its tasks, the problems which confront it, 
the record of its achievement, the ideals by which it 
is guided, and the hope which it cherishes for future 
service make an irresistible appeal. It is proposed 
that The Review shall carry this information to the 
former student. 

The University, on its part, delights in the story 
of the success of its sons. It is stimulated to greater 
service to the present by learning of the benefits which 
it has conferred in the past. Thus joy and inspira- 
tion may be brought to it through notices about the 
alumni which will appear in The Review. 



University men need to hear about each other. What 
one's college mates are doing incites one to larger 
endeavor. Notes about the old boys call back the 
names of friends whom the press and hurry of the 
years shut out of one's thoughts. By giving infor- 
mation about classes and individuals, The Review is 
to help every alumnus feel that instead of being an 
isolated individual, he is one of a large, hopeful, effi- 
cient body of men, with whom he can work to high 
common ends. 

The alumni heretofore have been bound together 
loosely. On account of this the University has had 
to work single handed without the large united sup- 
port which an organized, informed, purposeful body 
of alumni could and should give it. To be sure it 
has always had friends. It has never called on its 
sons for help in vain. It has realized many of its 
highest ideals. But it has lacked what it most of all 
needed — united support. Here is to be the real field 
of The Review. The alumni assign to it as its chief 
duty the task of uniting all the sons of the University 
in a common effort to bring into being the Greater 
University. 

How The Review is to effect this is the problem. 
Different methods for its solution have been proposed. 
But there is unanimity in the one point that it must 
be a medium through which all the alumni can — and 
do — speak. To this end it is open to all who would 
see the University go forward in its work. Contribu- 
tions on the more serious problems and work of the 
University, letters, accounts of alumni meetings, an- 
nouncements of marriages, births, and deaths, per- 
sonalia and notes of all kinds relating to the alumni 
and the University are wanted, and all class officials, 
especially class secretaries and secretaries of local 
alumni associations, and all individual alumni are re- 
quested to keep The Review informed about Uni- 
versity men. If all work together, the result desired 
will be achieved. 



The University of the olden days, the achic i 
ments of its instructors and sons past and present, 
the giving of honor where honor is due to those who 
have won distinction within the University and with- 
out, will receive emphasis as one of the special feat- 
ures of each number of The Review. In a history 
so long and a record of achievements so noble, the 
difficulty will lie in making the choice of event or pet- 
son. In the present number, however, death has done 
the kindly service of choosing, and it but remains for 
The Review to pay loving tribute to two men whose 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



21 



long participation in the affairs of the University has 
made them intimately known and honored by every 
alumnus of the past quarter of a century— Colonel 
Thomas S. Kenan and Professor Thomas Hume. 

Colonel Kenan's death occurred in Raleigh on De- 
cember 23, 191 1, and in his death every son of the 
University who in the past forty years has returned 
to commencement, has lost a personal friend. The 
quantity and quality of his service to the University 
are written of in this issue by one who knew him in- 
timately and may be set as a standard by which other 
sons may measure their work of loyalty and love 
for their alma mater. 

The press notices of July 16th announced the death 
at his home in Chapel Hill on the preceding day of 
Dr. Thomas Hume, Professor Emeritus of English 
Literature in the University. 

Dr. Hume's work for the University and the State, 
beginning in 1885 and ending in 1907, is too well 
known to require recounting here. The ripeness of 
his scholarship, the fineness of his spirit, the rareness 
of his enthusiasm and ability as an interpreter of the 
beautiful, the sweet charm of his manner, his gift of 
sympathy for men, his giving of his whole self to 
task or person — these are worthy of loving commemo- 
ration. 

In an appreciation by Dean E. K. Graham, in the 
North Carolina Review of February, 191 1, such a 
commemoration is given. Attention is directed to it 
as reprinted elsewhere in this number. 



diets his success at his alma mater, as enthusiastic 
teacher and constructive gospeller of uplift. 



The date of the unveiling of the monument to be 
erected in honor of the sons of the University who 
went into the Confederate service has been postponed 
until May 10th, 1913, at which time every alumnus is 
urged to be present to have a part in the commemo- 
rative exercises. The following transcript from the 
Secretary's notes will indicate how fitting it is for 
the University to place this permanent memorial on 
the campus : "Out of approximately 2,000 alumni of 
the University in 1861, a total of 1,484 were in the 
service. Of these 18 were generals, 81 colonels, 44 
lieutenant-colonels, 71 majors, 296 captains, 186 lieu- 
tenants, 84 surgeons, 14 chaplains, 27 adjutants-gen- 
eral and adjutants, 634 privates, 310 were killed in 
battle or died from wounds." 



Dr. Edwin Mims, sometime Professor of English 
Literature, and during the closing months of his stay, 
head of the English Department here, has recently 
taken up his new duties as head of the English De- 
partment at his alma mater, Vanderbilt University, 
Tennessee. The qualities which gave impetus and 
success to his work here are qualities which warrant 
his success in the educational field anywhere in the 
South. The University of North Carolina recognized 
in Dr. Minis the newer type of Southern scholar, de 
voting his energies and his enthusiasms to stimuTi 
tion of literary effort, and celebration of literary 
achievement in the South of present and of past. Cer 
tain unfilled fields of Southern life and literature, rich 
though neglected, brought forth a fair harvest through 
his endeavor. Quickening signs of material and spir- 
itual progress in the South attained fresher and larger 
significance through the medium of his voice and pen. 
The University of North Carolina wishes and pre- 



1 ).\e of the tasks to which the Association and the 
University should address themselves anew — the work 
has been done in part — is the compilation of a General 
Catalogue of the University. Not having such a cata- 
logue at hand The Review begs the indulgence of 
those to whom wrong class numbers may have been 
assigned, and requests all those who send in notes to 
be careful to give the proper class numerals. Such 
a catalogue, with full information concerning all ma- 
triculates, instructors, and officers, to date, is very 
much to be desired, and it is to be hoped that pro- 
vision may be made by the proper authorities for its 
early issuance. 



The Review wishes reports from every local alumni 
association meeting held October 12th or at any other 
time. It also wishes to complete the li^t of local a: 
ciation presidents and secretaries. Please send in tins 

information to the Editor.

AT CHARLOTTE 

Love for Carolina, pride in her achievements and stead- 
fast loyalty to the old institution found eloquent and feel- 
ing expression in Charlotte's celebration of University Day, 
1912. The observance assumed the form of a banquet from 
7:30 to 11:15 Saturday night in Shrine Hall, Piedmont 
Building. President John A. Parker of the Mecklenburg 
Alumni Association presided over the gathering of forty 
former students, young and old. In the genuineness of 
Carolina spirit that prevailed and in the intense purpose- 
fulness that characterized every speech, the occasion was 
one of the most successful of recent years. The principal 
thought that occupied the minds of the banqueters was 
this, "How may I most effectively serve the University?" 

When a toast had been drunk to the alma mater, Toast- 
master Parker expressed the regret of all that Professor 
H. H. Williams had not been able to accept the invitation 
tendered him to be present as guest of honor. Mr. Parker 
remarked in this connection that the institution should 
more generally follow the policy of sending out its best 
men to give the alumni the view of the inside workings 
of the University which is otherwise unobtainable. 

A quartet composed of Manlius Orr, H. C. Jones, John A. 
Parker and B. S. Drane sang, "Hark the Sound of Tar 
Heel Voices," and the diners joined in singing "I'm a Tar 
Heel Born and a Tar Heel Bred," in a manner that made 
the hall reverberate with the old-time ring. 

Mr. Paul C. Whitlock was the first speaker on the brief 
program. He told of the achievements of the University 
boys from Mecklenburg and now resident here. As sum- 
marizing this, he read the names and professions of 201 
enrolled on the county association's books. The list in- 
cludes 45 lawyers and 15 doctors. 

"If there were any need for evidence that the University 
teaches her sons high ideals, right living and breadth of 
view, these men and the lives they are living furnish suffi- 
cient proof," said Mr. Whitlock, amid applause. 

Mr. Robert S. Hutchison explained the purpose of The 
Alumni Review, the first number of which is soon to appear, 
published by the former students. He told of the effective 
ness of such a publication in the case of his own class. 
The new magazine is to be an open forum in which the 
university's sons may discuss freely any questions grow- 
ing out of its life. In this way the Institution will receive 
the benefit of the viewpoint not only of those who are inti- 
mately connected with it but of the man who is more 
closely identified with the outside world, ami views mat 
ters differently. By a comparison of views from all angles, 
a more perfectly balanced decision may bo reached. 

Various ones were called on by their Fellow-guests to 
speak and these did so briefly. Those who were present 
were Messrs. Alexander Graham, who has never been 
known to miss such an occasion, and who wan applauded 
when he entered the hall; William F. Harding, Dr. E. C. 
Register, Dr. H. F. Leinbach, J. II. McLain, J. L. DeLaney, 
Albert Fore, Victor L. Stephenson. Hamilton C. Jones, R. S. 
Hutchison. II. N. Pharr. Manlius Orr, John Tillett, C. W.

cating the system of alumni coaching as the most elective 
in producing a winning team. 

Before adjourning the alumni elected officers for the next 
year as follows: Brent Skinner Drane, president; Charles 
W. Tillett, Jr., vice-president; and Paul C. Whit'ock, sec- 
retary. — V. L. Stephenson, '06. 

AT RALEIGH 

The Wake alumni cerebated University Day last 
evening hearing the capital address of Dean Edward K. 
Graham and electing officers for the ensuing year. 

Pretty nearly half the Wake county association attended 
and Giersch's dining room was filled. Dr. J. M. Fleming, 
president of the local organization, presided and Col. J. 
Bryan Grimes was toastmaster. 

The banquet began at 8:30 o'clock and continued until 
11:20. During that period, a course dinner was served and 
the chairs were pushed back for the oratory. Dean Graham 
was graciously introduced and often applauded. 

But little discussion of hazing took place around the ban- 
quet board. Dean Graham took high ground. He stood 
by the institution and called upon the alumni to support it. 
There were references to the recent tragedy by several 
speakers. The alumni were sympathetic with their guest. 
Short speeches were made by Dr. J. Y. Joyner, Dr. Chas. 
Lee Smith, Judge R. W. Winston, Prof. Z. V. Judd, A. B. 
Andrews, Jr., R. D. W. Connor, W. B. Snow and Colonel 
Alex Feild. 

The governor's private secretary expressed the regrets 
of Governor Kitchin that the chief executive could not be 
present to attend with the Wake alumni and to express his 
sympathy with the University in its recent trying time. 

Toastmaster Grimes then corrected an impression that 
has gone abroad that the trustees of the University, repre- 
sented by the executive committee, had voted down a reso- 
lution calling upon the State to pass an anti-hazing law. 

"No such resolution was offered," Colonel Grimes said, 
"and no such was voted down." There have been 
articles written and printed which made these charges 
against the University, but they have not been contra- 
dicted. They were allowed to go. 

In the range of the speeches, athletics was discussed a 
great deal. There was a little amusement at some of the 
speeches that deplore the annual Virginia disasters. But 
the alumni quickly voted down any proposition to hire ath- 
letes to buck Virginia, It was pointed out that a trained 
student body, one taught to strive for positions in an open 
field, is infinitely more important than a hired band of pro- 
fessionals who might defeat an ancient rival. 

With Dean Graham and Dr. Chas. Lee Smith, who were 



guests, the following members of the association were 
present: C. A. Shore, R. D. W. Connor, F. A. Cox, A. L. 
Cox, Geo. McNider, L. B. Lockhardt, Eugene Howie, H. N. 
Gaddy, Joseph B. Cheshre, Jr., W. C. Harris, Ed S. Battle, 
Albert S. Root, Hubert B. Haywood, John A. Ferrall, A. B. 
Andrews, Jr., C. K. Burgess, John B. Stronach, Clyde 
Douglass, C. O. Abernathy, Wm. B. Snow, A. J. Feild, Z. V. 
Judd, R. W. Winston, Sr., J. Y. Joyner, J. Martin Fleming, 
J. Bryan Grimes, Perrin Busbee, E. E. Sams, S. H. Farabee, 
P. E. Seagle, C. G. Keeble, B. Grimes Cowper, Jr., Alex 
Stronach. 

The election of officers resulted in the choosing of Alex 
B. Andrews, Jr., president; John B. Stronach, vice-presi- 
dent; and Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr., secretary. Mr. Graham 
took the chair at the close of the meeting and named a 
committee for work. 

A committee composed of Messrs. Seagle, Busbee and 
Albert Cox, was appointed to investigate the athletic 
material in the high schools. With this done, the alumni 
adjourned.— News and Observer, Oct. 13. 

AT NEW YORK 
So successful was the 1911 affair at Reisenweber's, 
Fifty-eighth street and Eighth avenue, that the committee 
on arrangements of the New York city association of Uni- 
versity of North Carolina alumni selected the same place 
for this year's feast of the faithful. Again Judge Augustus 
Van Wyck presided and kept things lively with his ready 
wit and his store of amusing reminiscences. George Gor- 
don Battle, Dr. Charles Baskerville, the Rev. St. Clair Hes- 
ter and Frank Mebane led in the speechmaking. Francis 
A. Gudger, the humorist of the New York city association, 
rendered a most amusing imitation of an address by a 
statesman whose diction and manner were familiar to all 
present. The evening was given over to fun-making and 
good-fellowship, and there was little disposition to touch 
upon serious things. In his remarks, Mr. Battle gave ex- 
pression to an opinion that has been embraced by great 
numbers of alumni of all institutions of learning in recent 
years, namely, that there is grave doubt as to the useful- 
ness of the Greek letter fraternities in college life. When 
he was at Chapel Hill in the early eighties, Mr. Battle said. 
and there were no fraternities— except ore or two "sub 
rosa"— there was a solidarity about the student body that 
seemed, from what he could observe, to have been lost 
in more recent times. 

Judge Van Wyck recalled the old practice of leaving the 
managament of the library to the two literary societies. 
Hardly anybody went through college in his time, said the 
Judge, without serving at some period of his course as 
librarian or assistant librarian. This made the students 
"rub up against books" and made them learn to love books. 
But the librarians were not always well posted on the 
volumes put under their charge. 

"I walked into the Di Society librarv one day" said 
Judge Van Wyck, "and found a friend of mine acting as 
librarian. 'Jim,' I said, 'get me "Prometheus Unbound " 
will you? He turned to me and said 'Can't get it here Gua 
cause the Di Society don't keep no unbound books-thevro 
all bound and in good condition.' " 

Present at the dinner, besides Judge Van Wvck Mr 
Battle, Dr. Baskerville, Rev. St. Clair Hester, Mr. Mebane

Mr. Richardson, whose orchestra has won him much 
renown in New York, gave an interesting account of the 
actitvities of the Charlotte alumni association, of which 
he is a member, and told how successful it had been in 
keeping up college spirit among the alumni. 

A telegram conveying the good wishes of the New York 
alumni was sent to the President of the University, Br. 
Venable. The diners also sent a telegram of felicitations 
to A. Marvin Carr, who was being married in Kansas City 
just as the coffee was being served to his fellow alumni in 
New York. 

A vote of thanks was tendered to the dinner committee, 
Messrs. Gwyn (Chairman), Gudger, and A. W. Haywood, Jr. 

The fancy dancing of last year was not repeated. — Louis 
Graves, '02. 

AT WINSTON-SALEM 

Featured by a magnificent address by Prof. W. S. Ber- 
nard of the Greek department in which he told of the ex- 
cellent work that is being done at the University, the local 
alumni of the University of North Carolina held a delight- 
ful banquet at the Zinzendorf last night to celebrate the 
119th birthday of the institution. A goodly number of 
alumni attended, and the occasion was a success in every 
w ay. 

The president of the Forsyth county association, Mr. H. 
E. Rondthaler, acted as toastmaster, and during the even- 
ing delightful music was furnished by Lajoie's orchestra. 

Greetings were read from the Forsyth County Club at 
Chapel Hill, the greetings being signed by D. L. Rights, 
M. R. Dunnagan and George R. Holton, and also from Dr. 
Archibald Henderson of the Mathematics department. 

Mr. D. L. Rights, who is at home for a few days from the 
Hill, brought, also, verbal greetings from the Forsyth 
county students. 

After Mr. Rights' talk the alumni sang "Hail to U. N. C." 
This was followed by a short talk by Solicitor S. Porter 
Graves of Mt. Airy, who was a guest of honor. 

Prof. Bernard, in his speech, paid particular attention to 
the hazing situation at Chapel Hill, showing that hazing 
was, and had been for some time, steadily on the decrease, 
and that this year there had been, so far as the faculty 
had been able to learn, not a single case of vicious hazing, 
including the Rand case. Prof. Bernard told of the Rand 
investigation and of the investigation of the "rough house" 
which happened last year, which investigations resulted in 
the expulsion or suspension of 14 students. 

Prof. Bernard, in concluding his remarks, told of the 
estimation in which the University is held among educa- 
tional experts of the country, and he quoted Dr. Babcock. 
one of the country's greatest experts, as placing only three 
of the Southern universities in the first class. These are 
the University of North Carolina, the University of Vir- 
ginia and Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt is placed in this class 



because of its magnificent equipment, Virginia because of 
her great postgraduate departments, and North Carolina 
because it is doing more thoroughly than any other insti- 
tution in the South that which is the peculiar function of 
a State institution — educating the undergraduate students. 
Those who attended the banquet were: Dr. II. E. Rond- 
thaler, Frank W. Miller, H. F. Shaffner, E. E. Gray, Jr., Por-

J. B. Goslen and H. B. Gunter. — Winston Journal, Oct. 13. 

AT DURHAM 

Thirty members of the local alumni association of the 
University of North Carolina gathered in the Commercial 
Club rooms tonight and celebrated the one hundred and 
nineteenth anniversary of the opening of that institution. 

Owing to the fact that University Day fell on Saturday 
and many alumni were busy or out of town, no elaborate 
program was prepared, and a smoker was the only cele- 
bration planned. 

Speeches were made by Major W. A. Guthrie, Victor S. 
Bryant, and ex-Judge J. S. Manning, each emphasizing the 
hopeful outlook for the future of the University. 

A committee, consisting of W. J. Brodgen, T. B. Pierce, 
and T. C. Worth, was appointed to send a telegram of con- 
gratulations to President Venable, assuring him of the sup- 
port of the local alumni association. 

Another committee of five members was appointed to 
investigate the methods and plans whereby local alumni 
associations may be more closely welded together and 
work more for the common good of the University. 

Officers for the coming year were elected as follows: 
W. D. Carmichael, president; W. M. Parsley, vice-presi- 
dent; James S. Manning, Jr., secretary and treasurer. — 
News and Observer, Oct. 13. 

AT GREENSBORO 

A meeting of University alumni living in Creensboro was 
held Saturday night, October 12. in the parlor of the Mer- 
chants' and Manufacturers' Club, there being in attendance 
an enthusiastic body composed of both old and young 
alumni of the institution. The meeting was in the nature 
of a smoker and there was no definite program, However, 
there was a hearty and general discussion of the Univer- 
sity, of conditions at Chapel Mill, and of the needs of the 
institution, both old and young showing an unusual earnest- 
ness in considering the problems which were opened be- 
fore the meeting — the uncommon problems of the Univer- 
sity at the present time. 

The alumni elected the following officers for the ensuing 
year: Clem G. Wright, president; Carter Dalton, vlce- 
president; and Marmaduke Robins, secretary-treasurer. 
The meeting was adjourned with college songs and yells. —

OBITUARIES 



1853 



JOHN DOUGLAS TAYLOR 

John Douglas Taylor, A.B., 1853, was born in Wilming- 
ton, March 24, 1831. After graduation from the Univer- 
sity, he was a rice planter in Brunswick County. In 
1860 he was elected to the State Senate and served until 
January 1882, when he became captain of the Brunswick 
Artillery and was stationed at Fort Caswell. In the same 
year he was elected major of the 36th Regiment and in 
1863 became lieutenant colonel. He was in command at 
Fort Campbell until the fall of Fort Fisher after which 
he served under General Hagood and was present in the 
engagements at Fort Anderson, Town Creek, Kinston, and 
Pentonville, losing his left arm in the last-mentioned 
battle. 

He was a planter after the war for some years but, 
having moved to Wilmington, he was elected city clerk 
in 1877 and also served for some years as city treasurer. 
In 1890 he was elected clerk of the Superior Court and filled 
that position until his death which occurred on May 21, 
1912. 

He was a man of splendidly forceful character, but 
was at the same lime possessed of a gentle and lovable 
nature and a delightful courtesy. No man in Wilming- 
ton was held in more universal affection and esteem. 



1855 



EX-JUDGK WILLIAM J. MONTGOMERY 

Tn the death of Ex-Judge William J. Montgomery, of 
Concord, on June 28th, the University lost a most hon- 
ored son. 

Born August 14, 1834, in Montgomery County, Judge 
Montgomery entered the University at an early age and 
graduated in 1855. In 1858 he received his license to 
practice law after studying under Judge Pearson and 
located in Albemarle for the practice of his profession. 
He entered the Confederate service in 1861 as captain 
and was soon promoted to the rank of major and later 
lieutenant-colonel In lst',2 he resigned his post in the 
army and accepted the position of solicitor of Stanly 
County. 

In 1874 Judge Montgomery was elected on the Demo- 
cratic ticket as solicitor of the twelfth (then sixth) ju- 
dicial district, in which position he served with marked 
ability for eight years. In 1S85 he was appointed Judge 
of the Superior Court by Governor Scales and was elected 
to succeed himself in 1888. In 1889 he resigned from 
the bench and devoted himself in Concord, where he had 
moved in 1886, to the building up of a large practice. At 
the time of his death few men in the State enjoyed a 
reputation for wider knowledge of the law or greater 
ability in pleading cases than he. 

Judge Montgomery was twice married. He is sur- 
vived by three children from the first union and by his 
second wife and six children from the second union. 

As a citizen and as a member of the Methodist church. 
Judge Montgomery was not to be classed as one of the 
old school. "He was rather," to quote from editorial 
comment upon his passing, "representative of advanced 
thought in law and social problems, taking heed of bet- 
terment conditions for the future, rather than dwelling in 
the present or past. Anticipating many of the moral 
questions which sprang up during his later life he had 
made himself in a quiet but forceful way. a potent fac- 
tor in the welfare of the community of which he was a 
part. His influences were always directed toward benefi- 
cence and uplift, and closing his career, he gave up a 
life the record of which can be cherished with honor 
by his posterity,"
