THE OLD EAST BUILDING TODAY 



'^SMMll^^lSKd 



This is the gaunt figure of gutted Old East, prepatory to bracing its weakened walls and modernizing its in- 
terior. For a time it looked as though it would be necessary to destroy the entire building, owing to some wall de- 
fects. The building will be used solely as a dormitory in the future. The northern section will be ready for occupancy 
by the opening of the university.

THEY call it Efficiency. But 
it amounts to the same thing. 

Because, stripped of its purely 
technical significance, the Toasted 
Process is efficiency by another 
name. It represents the last ounce 
of effort which, in all the produc- 
tions of men, distinguishes the 
isolated examples of quality. 
Toasting the tobaccos in LUCKY

To My Fellow Alumni: 

I have been closely in touch with both efforts at a central alumni office and an effective association — the 
first in 1913, and the second in 1922. More than that, I have watched intimately, and with a deep affection, 
the gathering of the University from its limited, poverty-ridden circumstances of Reconstruction days, and 
its building to the position of the South 's great University, and I am happy to assure the sons of this noble 
University that nothing in recent years portends more of good for the institution's future than this present 
effort to marshal the love and power of all her 11,000 sons. As the power from the streams of North Caro- 
lina's hills trickled to waste for centuries, finally to be marshalled for industrializing our State, so has the 
love and power of University alumni trickled to waste. The mountain streams turned only an occasional 
wheel. So our alumni loyalty has risen only to meet an occasional University emergency. Nothing more ! 
We have not known the power of concerted action. Naturally, when we 've had no agency to marshal that 
power. 

Already your Central Office, established a year ago, has gone far in its work. The slow, tedious work of 
securing office equipment and space, of instituting a system capable of handling the tremendous volume of 
work, of securing and training capable assistants has been carried on. Your Board of Directors has been 
gratified at the progress that has been made, and the immediate responsiveness of large numbers of our 
alumni. At the same time, it has been disappointed at the indifference of an even larger portion of our group 
— an indifference which seems to be rooted in little unpleasant experiences of one character or another. Dur- 
ing the last several months we through doing so become the

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



OPINION AND COMMENT 



The Coming Year — 

Twenty-two hundred students will be packing their 
trunks for Carolina when this Review reaches the 9,000 
alumni whose addresses have been correctly entered 
in the alumni office. 

This coming year has a most distinctive meaning for 
the University and the alumni. More generously sup- 
ported by the State than ever before, better equipped 
than at any time in its history to train and inspire a 
host of high-minded, ambitious youth, conscious of the 
great responsibility it owes to the State it serves, the 
University stands at attention, ready to continue its 
ever-enlarging task. 

For the alumni the meaning is the same. United in 
a more perfect organization than ever before, led by 
officers who have caught a vision of what a thoroughly 
organized group of alumni can and should do, called to 
the carrying out of a program which will further 
strengthen Alma Mater's arm, they begin the year with 
the determination to make it one from which to date 
alumni history. 

□ □□ 

At Work the Whole Year 

The illustrations of what The Review means in the 
foregoing paragraph are the twelve week Summer 
School, and the first publication, in book form, of the 
University of North Carolina Press. 

When the University ran only nine months, the 
State lost in large part its services for three. While 
this comment is being written 518 students are enrolled 
in the second division of the Summer School, bringing 
the total number of regular students and teachers for 
the summer up to 1817. More than 300 have been 
pursuing courses in the Graduate School; the Uni- 
versity Library, with its 120,000 volumes and more than 
1000 journals regularly received, is being steadily used, 
together with laboratories and apparatus, for specialized 
work; special institutes in the field of public welfare 
are just being concluded here on the campus, while out 
in the State 380 physicians in four groups of six towns 
each, are concluding courses in post graduate medical 
instruction, and 450 students are enrolled in correspond- 
ence courses. 

For twelve months in the year the University is doing 
a tremendously big job, to all parts of which it is will- 
ing to have the public apply the yardstick of recognized 
university achievement. 

ODD 

Sell the University Idea 

President Murphy, in his letter to the alumni, calls 
the host now standing at attention to action. 

The Review, in turn, wishes to put its finger on a 



certain phase of the prospective action which it con- 
siders of especial importance, namely, the necessity of 
the alumni "selling the University idea to the State." 
If there are those who object to the verb sell, let's for- 
get the objection temporarily, while we go on to explain. 

The University was established and it exists today 
for very definite purposes. What these are, and the 
way in which they differentiate the University from 
other institutions, should be carefully studied by the 
University and the alumni, and, when occasion arises, 
they should be clearly stated. 

As President Butler, of Columbia, has said, the most 
helpful alumnus is the informed alumnus. And in this 
instance, the alumnus who can be of greatest service is 
that one who not only knows the achievements of the 
University in such of its activities as athletics and de- 
bate, but who understands what its educational policy 
is, what its respective schools and departments and 
organizations do, and how it, as a special institution of 
the State and Nation, renders special services of which 
the public would be deprived were it not in existence. 
Here is a study in analysis which every alumnus should 
make for himself, and, having made correctly, should 
pass on to the public. 

Such activity may not be engaged in to the accom- 
paniment of waving flags and blaring bands, but it is 
essential if the people of North Carolina are to know 
what the University really is. Governor Vance once 
said that the University was the chief asset and pride 
of North Carolina. President Graham declared it was 
the finest instrument the State had wrought out for its 
own development. If they were correct, and we are 
convinced that they were, it is for the alumni to know 
and say why. 

DDD 

Recording the Results of Investigation 

The newly established University Press furnishes a 
second illustration. The first publication to be issued 
by it in book form is "The Saprolegniaceae," by Dr. 
W. C. Coker, Kenan Professor of Botany and Director 
of the University Arboretum. 

The significant fact of the volume's publication is 
that through it the University has given to the public 
the 'results of a careful, scientific investigation which 
has engaged Dr. Coker and his collaborators for a 
number of years, has vitalized his teaching of certain 
subjects, and has extended the field of knowledge con- 
cerning this particular thing. 

The general public may never realize the importance 
of this service. But alumni should realize it and em- 
phasize the necessity of it. 

To the not too critical readers the title of the volume, 
"The Saprolegniaceae," may seem to resemble a line 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



from Virgil. To the casual reader it may appear to be 
devoid of commercial significance. In reality it does 
have considerable commercial significance in that it is a 
study of a water mold, the presence of which in waters 
where salmon are bred, leads to the death of the fish, 
just as the presence of the boll weevil in the South 
leads to the destruction of cotton. 

But it has a further significance. It is an honest, 
painstaking, purposeful piece of investigation. It is 
the sort of work out of which the advancements in 
science have been made. In that respect it is like the 
investigations carried on by Dr. McNider in the Medical 
School, the results of which were applied during the 
last year of the war in the hospitals of Europe and 
have been applied generally since in the successful 
treatment of certain diseases of the kidneys; and it calls 
to mind the successive, epoch-making investigations 
made by Pasteur in saving silk culture to the Italians, 
in setting up bounds within which hydrophobia is con- 
trolled, and in laying the foundation upon which pres- 
ent-day medical practice rests. 

Xot all of the books to be published by the Press will 
be of this highly technical nature. But whether they 
deal with scientific subjects or social problems, or treat 
of literary or historical matters, the objective of the 
University through the Press will be to contribute 
something of worth to the civilization of today. 

□ □□ 

Say It With Letters 

At the conference of local officers in Chapel Hill at 
Commencement, O. J. Coffin, '09, in commenting upon 
the contents of The Review, made the statement that 
The Review had very little to say about the alumni. 

Whether that statement sizes up the situation proper- 
ly or not The Review leaves to the alumni to judge. It 
certainly is a fact that it has not said nearly as much 
about the alumni as it should like to say, and is going 
to say in the future. 

But whatever your conclusion may be about the cor- 
rectness of the statement, The Review is conscious of 
a fault which is even more serious than the one com- 
plained of by Coffin and which must be remedied if it 
is possible, namely, the lack of expression of alumni 
opinion concerning alumni and University affairs. 

To the end that this fault may be remedied, The 
Review herewith renews the call to the whole alumni 
family to speak out in meeting and tell what it is 
thinking about. If The Review does not carry 
enough news about the alumni, say so. If it bears 
down too much on the alumni pocket book nerve, or 
preaches too much, say that. If you think the Uni- 
versity is becoming too materialistic, tell it how to save 
its soul. If you decry the passing of some of the an- 
cient landmarks, or dislike to see commercial subjects 
take the place of the classics in the curriculum, give 



the reasons for the faith within you. If you see ways 
in which you think Alma Mater could enlarge her use- 
fulness, let it be known what they are. 

The exchange of alumni opinion in alumni publica- 
tions such as the Yale and Princeton jllumni Weeklies 
is by far the most interesting and valuable features of 
those publications. It can be made so of The Review 
as well, if, fellow alumni, you will stop being oysters 
and, to adopt a phrase from the florists, will say it with 
letters! The columns of The Review are wide open 
and your opinions are eagerly awaited.

The Graham Memorial Building 

Gratification will be felt by the alumni in the pro- 
gress of the Graham Memorial Fund since the an- 
nouncement made by Felix Harvey, '92, for the com- 
mittee on Alumni Day. Since June 25 a dozen or more 
students and alumni have been visiting alumni through- 
out the State in behalf of the building and up to date 
the original subscription of $123,000 had been increased 
by the amount of $115,500. While the total of $400,- 
000 desired has not been subscribed, the response from 
alumni, both in assistance to the representatives and in 
subscriptions, has been most gratifying. 

The Review is informed that the committee will 
proceed with the erection of the central unit of the 
building this fall. The securing of Subscriptions in 
places in the State, not as yet visited, and from alumni 
outside North Carolina, will be continued for several 
weeks, or until the total desired has been secured. As 
The Review has previously said, the erection of this 
building furnishes the first sort of opportunity for 
alumni assistance, and every alumnus is expected to 
make a generous contribution to it.

We Welcome a New Contemporary 

North Carolina Commerce and Industry is the title 
of a new publication to be issued by the University. 

According to the announcement of the editorial board, 
drawn from the faculty of the University and the 
chambers of commerce of the State, the purpose of the 
publication will be "to gather, digest and interpret the 
facts of North Carolina industry and commerce, to set 
forth achievements worthy of mention, to analyse de- 
fects and needs, to make comparisons, to point out op- 
portunities, and to do whatever it may to expand and 
project the vision of larger accomplishment in the busi- 
ness life of the State." 

To this most recent of our contemporaries, The Re- 
view extends a most cordial welcome. May it, like its 
eight-year-old contemporary in the field of rural social 
science — The News Letter — run and have free course! 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



BATTLE'S HISTORY AND TAYLOR'S RED BOOK WEDDED 



Available Sources of Information Are Made to Yield up Material for Alumni 

Records and Catalogue 



From one typewriter on a stolen 
lecture room table to six hundred 
square feet of office space in the 
Alumni Building — all of which is in 
use ; from one part-time assistant to 
two full-time assistants and three 
part-time assistants is the story of 
the growth of the volume of work 
of the Central Alumni Office from 
September 1, 1922 to September 1, 
1923. And overtime is the rule 
rather than the exception. 

Correcting and completing rec- 
ords has consumed the large por- 
tion of the time spent. Mrs. Cornelia 
Spencer's catalogue, compiled by 
her own hands — a tedious and long 
drawn out labor of love is the only 
attempt to publish a complete roster 
of University alumni. A glance at 
this catalogue will reveal the vast 
amount of work to be done to com- 
plete the records of the men listed 
there. Very few of them are com- 
plete. 

The Red Books 

In 1899 Mr. James C. Taylor 
(now of Morganton) began the 
work of completing and correcting 
the catalogue of 1889, and also of 
bringing it down to date. This oc- 
cupied him about three or four 
years. The information which he 
gathered is recorded in what has 
come to be known in University 
offices as "Taylor's Red Books." 
Nothing of his effort has been pre- 
served save the scant information 
recorded in these volumes. As to 
the methods he used, references 
gathered, sources of indirect infor- 
mation, there is no record. 

Taking this list as a basis a card 
file has since been made, the names 
of those who have since matricu- 
lated added, and the names of those 
who have died removed. This work 
has gone on principally in Mr. Ran- 
kin's office in connection with The 
Alumni Review. No effort has 
been made since Mr. Taylor's work 
about 1904 to add to the records, 
save an occasional notation of 
someone's death. 

Much Memory Information Poor 

From the 3,000 accurate ad- • 
dresses recorded a year ago the ac- 
tive mailing list has been raised to 
more than 9,000. There are yet 



HOPEFUL MILESTONES 

One year ago there were 
only 15 alumni associations 
that were considered active, 
with duly elected officers on 
the job, although from 45 to 
50 were reported as existing. 
To date 65 out of a possible 
100 have been organized or 
reorganized. One year ago of 
11,000 alumni recorded as liv- 
ing the correct addresses of 
only 3,000 were known. To- 
day, through systematic check- 
ing and re-checking, the sec- 
retary has the addresses of 
9,000. 

One year ago there were no 
individual records of living 
alumni in Chapel Hill. Today 
there are 3,500 complete re- 
cords, and 400 incomplete, but 
workable records. 



near 1,000 names on the alumni 
roster about which nothing definite 
is known. This has been a slow 
process, requiring much re-check- 
ing. Much of the information is 
gathered from someone's memory 
and on an average will prove inac- 
curate in at least thirty per cent of 
the cases. 

Systematic Filing Devices 

In an effort to preserve for fu- 
ture reference all the work now 
done, Secretary Grant has installed 
in the Central Office two sets of 
files ; one for the men who have 
died, most for those of pre-Civil 
War days; and one for the living 
men. In the future every Univer- 
sity alumnus will have an individual 
file into which is gathered all infor- 
mation concerning himself. It be- 
gins with the exact information 
which he supplies and will be aug- 
mented from newspaper clippings, 
future direct inquiries, etc. 

During the past summer three 
stenographers have been kept busy 
bringing together all information 
concerning University alumni of the 
early days. This begins with infor- 
mation recorded in the catalogue of 
1889, supplemented by the additions 
made in the Red Book. Additional 



information is sought in North 
Carolina histories, biographies, Bat- 
tle's History of the University, old 
newspaper files, etc. These sources 
fall far short of giving up the 
needed information, making it nec- 
essary to search out original sources 
— usually descendants of the alumni 
about whom information is needed. 

First Systematic Effort 

"This can well be considered," 
says Secretary Grant, "the first sys- 
tematic effort to build up our alumni 
records in a complete fashion. We 
are careful to preserve all data 
which comes to us, making it less 
and less necessary as time goes 
on to call on the alumni for ex- 
tended information. But there is 
no way to escape it now. The last 
information which we can profit by 
was recorded in 1904, and that in a 
very scant form. The major por- 
tion of the alumni record which we 
are interested in has been made 
since that date. We realize that we 
have made an exacting request for 
information. Yet we could not do 
otherwise and accept the work. On 
the other hand we are making sys- 
tematic use of everything which is 
given us. Nothing is dissipated. 
And our requests are scaled to the 
very minimum before made — every- 
thing placed in the balance." 

Less Than Third Living Men 
Have Responded 

Already 3,500 living alumni have 
their records in complete form in 
the Central Office files— files which 
are to be preserved perpetually. 
There are near 6,500 alumni who 
have been requested from one to 
three times to supply information 
concerning themselves, but who 
have not responded so far. 



Dr. E. A. Lockett, '99, has re- 
cently been elected president of the 
Baptist hospital staff at Winston- 
Salem. 



Dr. George H. Kirby, B.S. '96, 
Professor of Psychiatry at the Cor- 
nell Medical College, has been 
elected the first president of the re- 
cently organized New York Society 
for Clinical Psychiatry. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



REVIEW AND CENTRAL OFFICE CONSOLIDATED 



Is Re-united to General Alumni Association — L. R. Wilson Continues Editor 

R. W. Madry, Managing Editor, E. R. Rankin to Devote Full 

Time To Extension Work 



The Central Alumni office, then 
The Alumni Review, then the 
Central Alumni office again. The 
first in 1911, the second in 1912, 
and the third in 1922. Now, as 
when founded, The Review is part 
and parcel of the General Associ- 
ation machinery, in accordance with 
the resolution of the General Asso- 
ciation at its June, 1923 meeting. 
In 1913, after Secretary Murphy 
was compelled to retire for lack of 
financial support and the Central 
Office was no more. The Review 
divorced itself and has since been 
conducted independently. Now the 
two have been re- wedded. 

E. R. Rankin, '13, who has been 
Managing Editor, and Business 
Manager, will give in the future his 
full time to the growing work of the 
Extension Division. He won his 
A.B. degree from the University in 
1913. and his M.A. in 1914. Im- 
mediately he entered the service of 
the University, becoming Associate 
Director of the Bureau of Exten- 
sion. • This work was then in its in- 
ceptive stages. From its beginning 
Mr. Rankin has been Secretary of 
the High School Debating Union. 
Today it is one of the outstanding 
services of the Extension Division.

found him back in Chapel Hill; the 
following back in Winston-Salem. 
Last fall he returned, won his A.B. 
degree, and completed about half 
the requirements for a graduate de- 
gree. He has worked during the 
past year, during his spare hours, 
in the Alumni Office and is thor- 
oughly familiar with the work. —

PRELIMINARY DIRECTORY 
ABANDONED 

It was reported at the June meet- 
ing of the Association, "There is to 
be an abbreviated directory which 
will be distributed by the time of 
the October 12th meetings." Sec- 
retary Grant now says: 

"We have decided to abandon 
that proposed directory and to ac- 
complish the end sought by two 
supplements to The Review. The 
prominent justification for the pro- 
jected directory was to provide a 
means of checking important data 
which will soon go into the general 
directory. This end we can achieve 
more completely through The Re- 
view supplements than through a 
hurriedly prepared abbreviated di- 
rectory."

magazines. It contains articles not 
only in the distinctly abnormal and

of the normal personality, a subject 
that is now in the forefront of tech

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Speafyn' of Questionnaires- 



I am writin mos particularly of three classes 
of us alumuuses of our universitat : 

1. Those who aint filled out the questionnaire 
sent us by the Central Offis, and who have sworn 
(as they thrower] it in the wast basket) that they 
never nint ! 

2. Those who intended to fill it out — who wants 
to coopurate, but who have neglected it. 

3. Those of us who have filled it purty full, 
but who jes naturally aint been keerful enough 
to mail it. 

Now, Brethren, by bieng libural with myself, 
I can squeeze in Department — I mean Class No. 
2 ; but I expec if I am most hones I Ml put myself 
in Class No. 1. 

And here's the mean reason. When I gits that 
questionnaire, I seys, seys I — ' ' This to me is 

f oolishnus. Aint our college the fines ' 

in the country. And whats the sense in asking 
me exactly what years I wuz in colledge, and what 
degree they honor 'd me with; and what I've done 
senee. "Munchie" or "Old Ven," or "Adam 
Kluttz, " or " Tommy J, " or " Horrace Williams ' ' 
— any of 'emm can tell what I 'm doing. I know 'd 
'cm all." Askin thos questions made me sore! 

So the first time I gits to Chappell Hil I 
walks in and seys to that secretary of alumnus — 
a new f angled thing which we didn't want nor 
have back in the nineties. Well, I sez to him and 
I sez it purty short. 

"Dis is damned f oolishnus. I goes further and 
sez what I 've jes said I thot when I got it. The 
very idea! Me a prominent citizen and states- 
man ! Any of the afore-mentioned partys can 
talk about me with authority. 

I had hem down when I told him that to his face. 

Ben I got hot. 

He laide down his pipe, smiled and seys 
plesaantly — ' ' Have a seat Mr. A. Lumnus. I 'm 
glad you came in." He wuz jes 'a sittin there. 

By this time I had los my respect for him. 
For if he 'd been much of a man, I thot, he 
oughta have said mor 'n that. 

Ben he says, quiet-like, lightin his pipe at the 
sam time. "You say Mr. A. Lumnus that 
"Ven" and "Munchie," and "Horace" and 
"Adam" and "Tommy" altogether know all 
this dope about you which we need, and have 
asked for. ' ' 

' ' Yes, ' ' I seys — powerfully strong too, for I 
know 'd I had him. 

"But. don't you think it would be rather diffi- 
cult for us to get a Faculty meeting just to find 
this about you, at the risk of its being inaccu- 
rate -and you insulted when we used erroneous 
information? And remember, before answering 
that, Mr. A. Lumnus, that even if they could give 
the information accurately — birthday, and exact 
date and spellings in every instance, that there 



are about ten or fifteen thousand other alumni — ■ 
requiring, according to your method, and assuming 
all alumni are as well known as you are, ten or 
fifteen thousand faculty meetings. ' ' 

Boys I wuz hot, — damn I wuz hot! And to 
make hit wors he sorta leaned back and smoked 
his pipe, not-noticin-me-like. 

I stammered aroun for a moment and then 
comes back. 

But finally he comes back strong — simply gits 
loos. I can't remember all he sed, because I was 
sore at being talked to in that way, but hear are 
the important things perched on my memory. 
And he was turning to files illustratin evry thing 
he wuz savin. 

1. No systematic record-keeping system in the 
pas. Scarcely no attention to alumnuses " records. 
Sed they began a year ago at the bottom. In 
fact sed with less than nothin almos on account 
of working out many errors which have been made. 

2. He show'd me where everyone of the alum- 
nuses what has writ him has a file all his own, 
where all information 'bout him, his picture and 
everything is kept. Accurately so he'll never 
haf to send it agin. 

3. Sed those records w-ould be hear a hundred 
years from now. 

4. He sed he jes couldn 't kno all us fellers 
because we is scattered from Cornwallus to the 
presen 't, and from Chappel Hill to Saskatchewan. 
Sed he wanted to treat us as individuals tho, and 
to do this he must have information about each 
of us fellers. 

5. Show'd me a book — big as our family Bible 
— an you know there are eighteen sisters of min 
sides Nancy and Bessie and all haf our names 
in the Book. Well, sed he wanted to write in a 
book like that the story of each of us alumnuses — 
where we's born or no. where studied in colledge, 
or booted our way, what we 's been doin of late, 
and whos married us. 

6. Seems like he sed somethin about the 
Alumni Review; and reunions, and days when all 
us fellers would get back under the Bavid poplar 
at the same hour. But I am not certain. 

7. Then a whole lot of bunk — dreamy stuff 
about what we fellers — us fellers who are really 
a select bunch, could do for our universitat — 
things I have of 'n thot of myself. And we shore 
had ought to do 'em. 

I bet he talked an hour. I jes had to go. 

But fellers I felt when I left that this 'Sossa- 
tion, and Birecteurs, and secretarie aint so bad 
after all. We jes oughta limber up to 'em a 
little and they'll do jes what we think best for 'em 
to do. And he wuz so glad to see me! 

Mos naturally yourn,

HOME-COMING DAY THANKSGIVING 



Alumni Association Plans for Virginia-Carolina Game — Central Office Financed 
First Year by Few Men — Dollar Membership Fee Abondoned 



The main considerations of the 
Board of Directors at its three-hour 
session in the Central Office, August 
20th were : 

1. Continuation of The Review : 
It is to appear ten times during the 
coming year. The first, a special is- 
sue, to go to all alumni. 

2. Financing the Association: 
Preparation of the Budget calling 
for $8,500 for 1923-24. Decision to 
abandon the dollar annual member- 
ship fee. 

3. A Home-Coming Day for 
University alumni on Thanksgiving 
Day — the day of the Virginia-Caro- 
lina football game. More effective 
reunions next June. 

4. Tieing in more closely with 
the University students, before they 
leave the University, preparatory to 
their work and attitude as alumni. 

5. Arranging for the publication 
of the Alumni Catalogue, which is 
to appear about September, 1924. 

6. More wide-spread and effect- 
ive local club gatherings for Uni- 
versity Day — October 12th. 

7. Increased attention to out-of- 
state alumni, the importance of 
which is recognized in the appoint- 
ment of three new directors to rep- 
resent them. 

8. The election of the secretary 
for 1923-24. 

Those attending the board meet- 
ing were President Walter Murphy, 
'92, Salisbury ; Vice-President Rob- 
ert H. Wright, '97. Greenville; C. 
S. Carr. '98, Norfolk, Va. ; Leslie 
Weil, '95, Goldsboro; O. J. Coffin, 
'09, Raleigh ; Miss Kathrine Robin- 
son, '21, Fayetteville ; judge S. E. 
Shull. '00. Stroudsburg. Pa. ; and 
Secretary Grant. Geo. Gordon Bat- 
tle, '85. 'New York; W. L. Long, 
'09; Miss Mary Henderson, L'15; 
and Isaac S. London. '06, Rocking- 
ham, were prevented by last-min- 
ute-contingencies from attending. 

New Members of Board 

Geo. Gordon Battle, '85, New 
York City; C. Stuart Carr, '98, 
Norfolk, Virginia, and fudge Sam- 
uel E. Shull, '00, Stroudsburg, 
Pennsylvania, have been appointed 
to the Board of Directors for 1923- 
24, representing out-of-state alumni. 
During the past year Shepard 



HOLD CONFERENCE 

LOCAL OFFICERS 

The Central Office is ar- 
ranging, a conference with the 
officers of each local associ- 
ation before the October 12th 
meetings. To this end, Secre- 
tary Grant is now on the road 
and will spend the balance of 
September and the early 'days 
of October in conference with 
local association officers. 

Arrangements for these 
conferences are made in ad- 
vance, in order to enable the 
Secretary to visit about 70 
groups during this short time. 



Bryan, '91, Atlanta, has been the 
sole director from outside North 
Carolina, representing 35 per cent 
of University alumni, while the 
other ten directors and association 
officers are from within the state — 
representing the balance of the 
alumni, about 65 per cent of them. 

Judge Shull and Mr. Carr at- 
tended the board meeting. Mr. Bat- 
tle was prevented from coming. He 
has, during the past year been 
chairman of the committee which 
organized the New York Alumni 
Association and at its recent meet- 
ing was elected president. 

A native of Wilson, Mr. Carr 
prior to his connection witli the F. 
S. Royster Guano Company was as- 
sociated in this state successively 
with the American Tobacco Com- 
pany, the Pitt Lumber Company, 
the Pitt Banking and Trust Com- 
pany, tie is a Phi Beta Kappa 
man, a Sigma Nu and a member of 
the Order of Gimghouls. 

Judge Shull is well remembered 
by old-timers as captain of the '99 
football team. Four years ago he 
was elected Presiding Judge of the 
43rd Judicial District of Pennsyl- 
vania for ten years. He is secre- 
tary of the Delaware Valley Rail- 
way Company, general manager 
and treasurer of the Stroudsburg 
Engine Works, and director of a 
number of other corporations. 

Mr. Battle is also a native North 
Carolinian. He returned to the 
University last June to deliver the 



Commencement address. Since 1891 
he has been a lawer in New York 
City, with offices now at 37 Wall 
Street, and is now prominently con- 
nected with numerous civic and 
philanthropic organizations, and 
clubs. In 1909 Mr. Battle was the 
democratic nominee for district at- 
torney of the county of New York, 
and on several occasions has acted 
as special assistant district attorney 
and special attorney general in the 
state of New York. 



SUMMER DRIVE FOR GRA- 
HAM MEMORIAL 

Subscriptions secured by alumni 
and student canvassers during the 
summer have brought the total 
pledges to the Graham Memorial 
Fund, as The Review goes to 
press, to $238,500, of which $115,- 
500 was the result of the summer 
drive under the direction of W. Jay 
Ward, acting for the committee. 

The goal is $400,000 and in the 
words of Mr. Ward : "A campaign 
on the Hill -among the faculty, stu- 
dents and citizens will yield a sub- 
stantial part of this balance. The 
out-of-State alumni will make a 
large contribution, and another 
combing of the State and working 
of the few communities that have 
not been reached will easily bring 
the campaign to a successful close. 
There is no doubt now that the 
work will begin on the central unit 
of the building sometime this fall.'' 

The alumni and student canvas- 
sers during the summer were : A. 
L. Purrington, Jr., H. C. Starling, 
William M. York, B. C. Brown, V. 
C. Swift, B. E. Humphrey, A. J. 
Cummings, Roy W. Unchurch,

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL 



Old East and Old West Undergo Repairs — Men Outnumber 
Women in Summer School 



Did you ever play baseball, or 
rather try to play baseball on the 
grass around the Old East and Old 
West place? If you did, you will 
remember that Uncle George Pick- 
ard umpired the game, so to speak. 
Well, that grass is not in existence 
now so you can notice it. Around 
both places there are piles of lum- 
ber, plaster and bricks. In front of 
Old East there is a rip-saw run by 
electric power, and for a while the 
noise of hammers was heard all 
during the night. 

Some day this campus will again 
be a place of quiet and beauty, but 
not until it stops growing. 

Summer School 

The other day I found two hair- 
pins on the tennis court on which I 
was playing. Of course we do have 
co-education in the Summer School. 
I wonder if the time will ever come 
when hairpins can be found on all 
of our tennis courts and play- 
grounds? I imagine that a real 
rabid anti-co-educationist might 
have had his game ruined by such 
an experience. 

Men Outnumber Women 

The Summer School really begins 
to look as if it were a co-educational 
'institution. In times gone by the 
Summer School was made up al- 
most entirely of the gentler sex; 
however, with the change from a 
six weeks normal to a real summer 
quarter of twelve weeks the rougher 
sex begins to appear in increasing 
numbers. It will be a long time be- 
Eore we have a real summer quarter 
from the point of view of campus 
life. Imagine a college without any 
athletics, without any student publi- 
cations, without any organized stu- 
dent government, with dancing as 
the only indoor sport and coupe 
cooing as the only outdoor sport. 
The man who really wants to work 
has the best opportunity in the 
world, and the man who does not 
want to work has an abundance of 
excuses. 

Second Session Has 500 

These past five weeks, those of us 
who used to know the University as 
a small institution have felt 



strangely at home in a student body 
of slightly over five hundred. 

You will find it hard to picture 
the campus as it is run during the 
summer. The curfew tolls at 10:45, 
and the two nightwatchmen em- 
ployed by the University clear the 
campus of all lingerers under the 
pain of appearance in court for 
trespass, and by eleven o'clock all is 
quiet "around the well." 

F. F. B., '16. 



WANTS HOME-COMING 
GAME 

Hilton G. West, '19, editor 
of the Chairtoivn Neivs, pub- 
lished at Thomasville, writes : 

"At the meeting of perma- 
nent class secretaries last Oc- 
tober your humble servant 
suggested a home-coming 
game each fall, either the Vir- 
ginia or State game. I know 
the big middle western univer- 
sities use this plan to special 
advantage, and am sure we 
could- too. 

"My idea is to have each 
class sit together. I would 
especially like to see the plan 
adopted this fall, if possible, 
as '19 has its five-year reunion 
next June. I believe that 
would help the attendance. 
Should the plan not be adopted 
now I want to reserve a sec- 
tion for '19 at the Thanksgiv- 
ing game. 



FINANCIAL STATEMENT 

The following is a statement of 
the condition of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation Treasury September 1, 1923 
— at the end of the first year of 
operations : 

Receipts 

Cash forward, 1921-22 dues $ 172.75 

From $5,000 pledged in 1920 3,025.00 

Sustaining Membership fees 1,572.50

Salary 3,000.00 



$4,100.00 
Balance on hand $1,057.25.

mated, will require $8,500.00. Of 
this amount scarcely more than 
$1,000 is on hand, making it neces- 
sary to raise during the year $7,- 
500.00. 



THE 130TH ANNIVERSARY 

On Friday, October 12th, the Old 
East Building will .be 130 years of 
age. It was the first building 
erected by a state in this country 
for university purposes. 

More University alumni will com- 
memorate that event this fall than 
have done so before. There are 
more than sixty local clubs already 
organized and functioning. Already 
many of these have plans under 
way for this celebration, and it is 
anticipated that each of the others 
will hold a meeting on the evening 
of the 12th. 

Notable among the out-of-state 
alumni that are already arranging 
for this fall meeting are those of 
greater New York, Georgia, Phila- 
delphia and Florida.- Many groups 
in North Carolina have already 
written concerning their projected 
meetings. 

Secretary Grant also reports that 
"there are numerous other centers 
where there is a sufficiently large 
number of alumni to hold an effec- 
tive gathering, and form a local 
association — Maryland, Richmond,. 
Norfolk, Columbia, S. C, Rock 
Hill, Spartanburg, Greenville, Flor- 
ence, and in North Carolina, the 
following counties : Swain, Jackson, 
Haywood, Transylvania, Ashe, 
Burke, Alamance, Hoke, Columbus. 
Onslow, Cartaret, Hertford and 
possibly some others. 

"It is the earnest desire of the 
Board of Directors to have formed 
by October 12th a local association 
wherever there is enough men to 
justify it," says Secretary Grant. 



Branch Bocock, former Carolina 
coach, now lives in Winston-Salem, 
where he is a dealer in sporting 
soods.

MANY CAROLINA LAWYERS LICENSED 



NEW YORK ALUMNI SET 
PRECEDENT 

The New York Alumni Associa- 
tion, banqueting at the Hotel Bre- 
voort on August 9th at the second 
gathering of the year, elected 
George Gordon Battle, '85, presi- 
dent and John S. Terry, '18, secre- 
tary of the reorganized association. 

Air. Battle is a prominent New- 
York attorney. He delivered the 
Commencement address last June. 
Air. Terry, a native of Rocking- 
ham, is associate editor of The 
School, a weekly publication de- 
voted to school work in New York 
Citv and throughout the country. 
Robert W. Madry, '18, had been 
acting secretary of the association 
since its reorganization last Febru- 
ary. 

The New York group set a pre- 
cedent, the results of which will be 
watched with keen interest by alum- 
ni throughout the country. The 
thirty members present voted unani- 
mously to hold informal get-to- 
gether meetings once a month in 
some convenient restaurant to be 
designated. These gatherings are 
not intended to detract from the im- 
portance of the regular big meet- 
ings. 

Monthly Get-Togethers 

The sole purpose of the monthly 
confabs will be to provide a definite 
meeting place where on one night 
each month Carolina men in New 
York and visitors will know they 
can find other alumni with whom 
they can chat. There will not be 
more than one, if any, set speeches, 
the idea being to make these meet- 
ings as free and informal as pos- 
sible. 

Secretary Grant, who was pres- 
ent, heartily approved the plan and 
praised the initiative and enthusiasm 
of the group. Other guests of 
honor were : Leslie Weil, '95, a 
trustee of the University, and his 
son, Abram ; Dr. Edgar W. Knight, 
member of the faculty, and George 
Denny, head of the Bureau of Lec- 
tures. 

Those Present 

Among those present, besides the 
guests mentioned, were George 
Gordon Battle, Alfred W. I lav- 
wood, T. Holt Haywood, W. D. 
Carmichael, Jr., David Brady, Dr. 
W. P. Jacocks, Kameichi Kato, 
Charles H. Keel, R. R. Koonts, Al- 
fred M. Lindau, R. G. Merritt, 



William N. Pritchard, W. S. Til- 
lett, Edward Locke Williams, J. W. 
.Mclver, John S. Terry, William 
Folger, Stroud Jordan, J. K. 
Palmer, Dr. H. Bailey Chalfant, R. 
H. McLain, L. R. Johnston, Fred 
Morrison, William Neal, Elliot T. 
Cooper, Robert W. Madry and 
Ralph D. Williams. 



THREE-DAY REUNIONS 
NEXT JUNE 

Parades, music, costumes, foot 
races, potato races, baseball games, 
and beauty contests, are a few of 
the things on the four-day program 
for the Reunion Classes of '54, '64, 
'84, '94, '04, '09, '14, '19, and '23 
when they gather in Chapel 1 [ill 
next June. 

June 8-11 are the days of the 
next Commencement. R e u n i n g 
classes this year are planning their 
stay in Chapel Hill to cover these 
four days. As in the past, Tuesday, 
the 10th, is Alumni Day, and will be 
covered by alumni activities only. 

"Classes are not to try to hold a 
reunion on this one day, as in the 
past," says President Murphy. 
"With the increased housing and 
eating facilities in Chapel Hill ow- 
ing to recent building, with the ho- 
tels of nearby towns easily accessi- 
ble, we are going to start this year a 
comprehensive reunion program 
covering all the days of Commence- 
ment." 

To this end, President Murphy 
has already named a Reunion Com- 
mittee that is to have control of the 
gathering of alumni next June. It 
is composed of H. M. Wagstaff, 
'99, Chapel Hill; T. F. Hickerson, 
'04. Chapel Hill; John W. Umstead, 
'09, Durham; Oscar Leach, '14, 
Raleigh; H. G: West, '19, Thomas- 
ville ; and N. C. Barefoot, '23, Ben- 
son. 

The secretaries of reuning classes 
are now working out the plans for 
the gathering of each class, and 
they will be called into conference 
in Chapel Hill with the Reunion 
Committee and Secretary Grant 
within the next few weeks when the 
entire program for the year will be 
worked out. 

If plans of the Hoard of Direc- 
tors consummate it will be a gala 
event with the alumni holding the 
center of the stage.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT 



First Book Issued by Press 

The Saprolcgniaceae, with Notes 
on Other Water Molds, is the title 
of the first book published by the 
recently incorporated University of 
North Carolina Press. It contains 
201 pages, six half tones, fifty-seven 
line plates, is of quarto size, is 
handsomely bound in dark blue 
cloth, and has been placed on sale 
at $10.00. Dr. W. C. Coker, Kenan 
Professor of Botany and Director 
of the Arboretum, is the author. 
The date of publication was July 
21.- 

The volume treats of all known 
species of water molds and par- 
ticularly of the saprolegniaceae, a 
large family of delicate fungi which 
grow on dead insects or other or- 
ganic matter in water. The treatise 
is of special economic importance 
because some of the species de- 
scribed destroy large numbers of 
fish in salmon bearing streams. 

Other volumes announced by the 
Press for publication during the 
year are : The Clavarias of the 
United States and Canada, by W. C. 
Coker; Law and Morals, by Roscoe 
Pound ; The Scientific Study of So- 
ciety, by Franklin H. Giddings ; The 
Ride of the People, by Fabian 
Franklin; Community Organisation, 
by Jesse F. Steiner; Analytical 
Index to the Ballad Entries in the 
Stationers' Register, by Hyder E. 
Rollins; Argentine Literature: A 
Bibliography of Literary Criticism, 
Biography, and Literary Contro- 
versy, by Sturgis F. Leavitt ; Contri- 
butions to The Relativity Theory, 
by Archibald Henderson, J. W. 
Lasley and A. W. Hobbs; Agricul- 
tural Graphics: North Carolina and 
the United States, 1866 to 1922, by 
Henrietta R. Smedes. 

The incorporation of the Press 
was formalized on June 12, 1922, 
the incorporators being as follows : 
Messrs. A. M. Scales, Leslie Weil, 
Z. V. Walser, H. W. Chase, L. R. 
Wilson, Edwin Greenlaw, J. G. deR. 
Hamilton, N. W. Walker, L. P. 
McGehee, W. C. Coker, H. W. 
Odum, Louis Graves, and C. D. 
Snell. L. R. Wilson is director and 
Louis Graves, secretary of the or- 
ganization. 



Kenan professor of English in the 
University of North Carolina, and 
Dudley H. Miles, head of the De- 
partment of English of the Evander 
Childs High School, New York, 
published by Scott, Foresman & 
Co., is just off the press. The 
fourth volume, which will complete 
a course in English and American 
literature for use in secondary 
schools, will be issued soon. 

More than 100,000 copies of the 
first volume, issued a year ago, have 
been sold and a second print has 
been ordered. The publishers have 
informed Dr. Greenlaw that the 
book is in wide use in secondary 
schools throughout the country, par- 
ticularly in the South. 



The University Library is in re- 
ceipt of a copy of a translation of 
Beaumarchais' Barber of Seville, by 
\\ . R. Taylor, who was assistant in 
the library in 1913-14. Mr. Taylor 
is in charge of play production in 
the North Carolina College for 
Women in Greensboro. Last year 
he decided to present the Barber of 
Seville, and, finding no translation 
suitable for his purpose, he made 
one of his own which Walter H. 
Baker published for him. 



E. M. Coulter, '13, professor of 
history in the University of Geor- 
gia, has recently written a History 
of Kentucky in two volumes and a 
book entitled, The Cincinnati South- 
ern Railway and the Struggle for 
Southern Commerce. He is an edi- 
tor of the Georgia Historical Quar- 
terly. He gave courses during the 
summer in the University of Ken- 
tucky and during the preceding 
summer in the University of Texas. 

"The Worker in Modern Eco- 
nomic Society," by Dr. Willard E. 
Atkins, who comes to the Univer- 
sity this fall as Associate Professor 
of Business Law and Economics, 
has just been issued by tl]£ Univer- 
sity of Chicago Press. It is a book 
of 962 pages and brings together a 
fine body of material on a subject 
very vital at this time. 



SUMMER SCHOOL 

Summer school at the University 
this year was unique in that two 
sessions were held for the first time 
in the history of the institution. The 
first opened on June 18 and closed 
July 28. The second opened on 
July 27 and closed September 7. 
For the first term there were 1,315 
students as compared with a total of 
1,348 in the summer of 1922. This 
slight decrease in attendance is ex- 
plained by the fact that many teach- 
ers and students waited for the sec- 
ond session. The total attendance 
for the summer was 1,875. The at- 
tendance at the second term num- 
bered 560. Of those registered in 
the first session the registrar found 
that for the first time in 36 such ses- 
sions the women students were out- 
numbered. 



UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 

The third volume of "Literature 
and Life," by Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, 



I. F. Lewis, A.B. 1902, M.S. 
1903, Professor of Biology in the 
University of Virginia, is Chair- 
man of the Temporary Executive 
Committee for the proposed Union 
of American Biological Societies. 



FOOTBALL SQUAD 
ASSEMBLES 

As The Review goes to press 
Carolina's football squad is being 
assembled by Coaches Bill and Bob 
Fetzer. Despite the loss of five 
valuable varsity men from last year, 
prospects for the season are bright. 

One weakness, however, will be 
in the lack of a powerful backfield 
reserve. The first string line should 
be able to stand the pace set by a 
moderately balanced schedule, and 
the Fetzers will be able to send in 
four varsity backs, McDonald, Mer- 
ritt, Sparrow, and Randolph, who 
compare favorably with last year's 
great combination of McDonald, 
Johnson, McGee, and Morris. But 
the reserve power that brought 
Carolina out of several holes and al- 
lowed her to win every game in the 
South in 1922 will be missing — at 
least at the opening of the season. 

The schedule is as follows : 

September 29, Wake Forest at 
Chapel Hill. 

October 6, Yale at New Haven. 

October 12, Trinity at Durham. 

October 18, N. C. State at Ral- 
eigh. 

October 27, Maryland at College 
Park, Md. 

November 3, South Carolina at 
Columbia, S. C. 

November 10, V. M. I., unlo- 
cated. 

November 17, Davidson, unlo- 
cated. 

November 29, Virginia at Chapel 
Hill. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



WITH THE ALUMNI HERE AND THERE 



Here THE REVIEW introduces a new department. It will provide space particularly for items with the human, 
personal touch and record special honors, promotions, etc. Secretary Grant's yellow slip No. 1, recently sent to alumni, 
has produced a good deal of alumni Dews. Keep it up. Send in items about yourself as well as the other fellow. And 
remember — the fact that "X. Y. Z." is STILL practicing law isn't half so interesting as the fact that he*s mar- 
ried, or that there's something besides a fence running around his house and that it's named for its dad. Let us have 
the NEWS, good or bad— promotions and demotions, deaths, marriages, trips or what not. We want to print more 
alumni news. — The Editors. 



C. S. Norburn, Med. '15, President's 
Surgeon 

Dr. Charles Strickland Norburn, U. S. 
X.. formerly of Asheville, accompanied 
the late President Harding on his Alas- 
kan trip as his personal surgeon, the 
nomination to this important post being 
made by the surgeon-general of the navy. 

Dr. Norburn is the son of Mr. and 
Mrs. Charles A. Norburn of Asheville. 
His rise to prominence in the navy began 
in 1917. when he volunteered at the out- 
break of the war. He was assigned to 
the Connecticut, flagship of the Atlantic 
fleet, hut did his greatest share of work 
aboard the hospital ship Comfort, where 
his surgery first attracted particular at- 
tention. 

He was later transferred to the League 
Island hospital, in Philadelphia, and while 
there he was selected on a competitive 
basis for a course at the well known 
Mayo clinic in Minnesota, being one of

the first two men ever given this course 
by the government. 

He was then made an instructor in 
X-ray at the naval medical school, Wash- 
ington, and more recently was in turn 
operating surgeon on the hospital ships 
Mercy and Relief. 

"Mike" Dunnagan Goes to Asheville 

M. R. Dunnagan, who has been news- 
papering since he left the Hill in 1914, is 
back in harness again after a year at Co- 
lumbia University where he was gradu- 
ated last June from the Pulitzer School 
of Journalism. 

This time he is with the Asheville Citi- 
zen as managing editor, and that pro- 
gressive newspaper, which is owned by 
three Carolina alumni, considers itself 
particularly fortunate in securing his 
services. 

Prior to going to New York for a 
year's "study and atmosphere," Mr. Dun- 
nagan was city editor of the Charlotte 
Observer, and before that he was city 
editor of the Winston-Salem Journal. 

While in Gotham "Mike" couldn't re- 
sist the urge to, write any more than while 
in the army, when he got out a sheet for 
his unit. He kept in close touch with 
the State through special articles to the 
press, which were read with wide inter- 
est. While at Columbia he "did" New 
York thoroughly, even to the point of de- 
termining how "wet" it was. And when, 
after a long investigation, he did discover 
how many "speak-easies" there were New 
York city editors told him that was not 
"news" and advised him to send his copy 
to drier territory. 

Winston Law Firm Dissolved 
The Raleigh law firm of Winston, 
Winston and Erassfield has been dis- 
solved and Leon S. Brassfield, former 
State Senator, will hereafter conduct the 
practice of the firm alone. 

Judge Robert W. Winston, senior 
member of the firm, retired from the ac- 
tive practice sometime ago and removed 
his legal residence to Washington, D. C. 
His son, Robert W. Winston, Jr., who 
recently returned from a tour of Europe, 
has removed to Chicago, III., where he

will be associated with his brother, J. 
Horner Winston, in the practice of law. 
Judge Winston has been spending the 
summer at Nantucket, Mass. Earlier in 
the year he spent two months in Chapel 
Hill where he attended lectures under 
Professor Williams and took courses in 
the writing of short stories and folk 
plays. 

Lawyers of Three Generations 

Burton Craige, '97, and Kerr Craige, 
Law '07, are practicing law in Winston- 
Salem and Salisbury under the firm name 
of Craige & Craige. The firm was es- 
tablished in 1832 by Burton Craige, A.B. 
'29, and A.M. '47. It was continued with- 
out interruption by Kerr Craige, A.B. 
'63, a trustee of the University, until 1904 
and since then by the present members 
of the firm. The firm name has been 
( 'raige & Craige through three successive 
generations. Burton Craige is a trustee 
of the University.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



W. S. Dickson Promoted 

The Greensboro Daily News announced 
on August 9th the appointment of W. S. 
Dickson, '07, as advertising manager of 
that newspaper, in succession to the Kite 
A, B. Joyner. Mr. Dickson is president 
of the Greensboro Alumni Association. 
His publicity work in 1921 and last 
spring was a notable contribution to the 
campaign for higher education in the 
State. In promoting Mr. Dickson to this 
highly responsible position, The Daily 
News said j editorially in part : 

"The Daily Nezvs considers it highly 
fortunate that the management is under 
no necessity of searching for a man for 
this important position but can with con- 
fidence entrust it to one who has long 
been identified with Mr. Joyner in the ad- 
vertising department. Mr. Dickson has 
a large circle of acquaintance in Greens- 
boro, and indeed throughout North Caro- 
line. 

"He knows the advertising business, 
and has high talent for publicity work ; 
moreover, he is familiar with the indi- 
vidual problems and methods of patrons 
of the Daily Nezvs. In aiding them, in 
advising them, in carrying out their 
wishes, therefore, he is already in posses- 
sion of special equipment which it would 
be a matter of time for any outsider to 
acquire. Mr. Dickson is thoroughly iden-

tified with Greensboro, and has devoted 
time to effort both enthusiastic and effec- 
tive in promotion of many civic enter- 
prises." 



Judge Sinclair Very Active 

Neil A. Sinclair, '85, resident judge of 
the Ninth Judicial District, whose home 
is in Fayetteyille, has been much in the 
public eye of late owing to his efforts di- 
rected against alleged abuses on the part 
nf public officials. In several counties he 
has taken county commissioners and 
other public officials to task for what he 
considered neglect of duty in looking 
after jails, prison camps, court houses, 
public ferries, etc. 

It fell to his lot to preside at the spec- 
tacular trial of three alleged Klansmen 
in Robeson county charged with burglary 
and assault and his conduct in handling 
the case demonstrated that he is unalter- 
ably opposed to the Klan. 

Maj. Parker on Important Mission 

Maj. John A. Parker, '06, judge advo- 
cate of the United States Army, was 
ordered to London in July to assist in the 
preparation and trial of a civil suit pend- 
ing in the high court of justice, King's 
Bench division, in which the United 
States was a party plaintiff. Maj. Park- 
er's mission was the result of a request 
.from the Attorney General to the Secre- 
tary of State, who said that because of 
the large amount of money involved and 
Major Parker's study and knowledge of 
the whole matter, it was considered nec- 
essary that he go to London.

Hanes Again Mayor Winston-Salem 

James G. Hanes, '09, was recently 
elected mayor of Winston-Salem for a

remarkable. 

A school program, one item of which 
is the building of $2,000,000 worth of 
new school buildings, is rapidly nearing 
completion. Many new streets are being- 
paved, boulevards constructed, and parks 
developed, all in accordance with a city- 
plan prepared by experts.

Quincy Sharpe Mills, North Carolinian 

After rising to high success in ten years, this brilliant 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 
under the title of "One Who Gave His Life". It tells of Mills' b'ovhood, 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 war. 

No North Carolinian — especially no alumnus of the University, which 
Mills loved so deeply — should be without this book. 

"A fitting tribute to the memory of a brave soldier." — New York Times. 

"An exhibit in Americanism. " — Richmond News-Leader. 

"A bright and brilliant story of a young life." — Boston Transcript. 

"A glorious book." — San Francisco Bulletin. 

"A vivid scries of pictures of the personal side of the American soldier's life at the 
front." — The Times, London, England.
