Founders Day!! 

It is the best thought and plan of the Board of Directors that there will lie three occasions during the year 
when all University men will be concerned — Unviersity Day, a llome-Coming Day (at the time of the biggest 
football game), and Reunions at commencement-time. ( )f these occasions University Day — October 12th, is 
the most important. It concerns every University alumnus, student and faculty member. The other two occa- 
>i"ns. while of genuine interest, cannot be so sweeping in importance. 

We have then to think now of this — the greatest of days to all University men. Alma Mater's Natal Day — 
the 130th. While this is the greatest day of all, no attempt will be made to bring the alumni back to Chapel 
Hill. It is expected that on this day they will assemble in groups wherever they are. This can be done with 
the least inconvenience, and yet these meetings will be of more permanent significance to every alumnus, to his 
local and the general association, and to the University than the Home-Comings, or Reunions. At the pres- 
ent moment the living alumni are so distributed as to make easily possible 100 gatherings — 100 local clubs — 
100 different local groups, each with its own local interest — and all with the joint interest of seeing the Uni- 
versity render society even greater service. 

Even if there was no work to be done it would be- well for sons of a common University to pause 
together and recognize the passing of the 130th birthday of America's oldest State University; to contemplate 
the future, and to think of the part the University, and University men (whom society has trained to serve 
it ) can play in shaping that future. 

But there is work! Ahna Mater has grown rapidly during tin- past two years. It is busy donning new 
garments to wrap its expanding life. High school graduates in the State that threaten to double in number 
during the next two years — the boys "crowded in and crowded out" of the University today, and a pro- 
gressive state are calling for even greater growth during the immedia'tf years that face us.

The New Year 

With two thousand and twenty-five students enrolled 
in the various departments at the end of the first week 
of registration, with the faculty of 134 and 25 teach- 
ing fellows increased by the addition of a score and a 
half of new names, with Saunders, Murphey, and 
Manning Halls, newly built and equipped and in full 
service, the University has had a most auspicious 
beginning of its 130th year. 

President H. W. Chase at the Chapel Period on Fri- 
dav, September 21, welcomed the new students to the 
quest of truth here under the century-old oaks, and the 
year 1923-24 is happily begun. 


To the New Men 

The Review knows that the following statement 
could more properly be made by its contemporary, The 
Tar Heel. Nevertheless it makes it, inasmuch as many 
of the fathers of the new college generation are alumni. 

To you who have had to enter rooms that were not 
wholly ready for your occupancy and who have had to 
stand in line at the post office and wait for "the letter 
from home," a better day is ahead. The carpenters 
and plasterers simply couldn't do all that had to be done 
between the end of the second summer term and the 
opening of the new, but they will have you fitted out 
in a few days. The post office situation isn't quite so 
simple, but the University is on the job to put an end 
to the seemingly endless line. 

Your patience is appreciated and. we hope, your 
virtue is to be speedily rewarded. 


University Day 

Friday, October 12, is the next red letter day for 
alumni in the University calendar. It is the first of 
the three distinctly alumni occasions of the year, the 
other two being Home-Coming Day, Thursday, No- 
vember 29, when Carolina meets Virginia on Emerson 
Field, and Alumni Day, June 11, 1924. Marking the 
130th anniversary of the University, the day will not 
only be celebrated throughout the State and Nation by 
loyal alumni, but it will be made notable by a special 
celebration on the campus. Secretary of State Will N. 
Everett, '86, of Raleigh, will be the speaker at the 
special exercises in Memorial Hall ; Carolina will meet 
Trinity on Hanes Field in Durham ; and 100 local 
alumni associations, together with smaller groups and 
individual alumni everywhere, will fittingly observe 
the memorial occasion. 


How to Celebrate 

For the most effective celebration of the event by the 
alumni, particularly those who are fortunate enough to 
be gathered into good-sized groups, The Review rec- 
ommends the suggestions made by Secretary Grant in 

his open letter to the alumni appearing on the first 
page of this issue. A program committee should be 
put to work instantly by the officers of each local asso- 
ciation. The purposes of the General' Association 
should he clearly presented to the alumni. Informa- 
tion concerning all members of the group should be 
given the central office. Plans for future meetings and 
for the assistance of students should be worked out. A 
jolly time should be assured. And alert, effective 
officers should be elected for the succeeding year. 

If these suggestions are properly carried out the 
work of the Association will be greatly strengthened 
and the coming of the day will be hastened when the 
11,000 sons and daughters of Carolina, united in car- 
rying out one common purpose, will play the part in 
the life of the University that the alumni, as a group, 
should play. 


The Big Fourth 

In urging this action. The Review is prompted by 
the realization of the fact that the University, in its 
entirety, is composed of four essential groups — trus- 
tees, faculty, students, and alumni — all of which must 
function efficiently if the University is to do its best 

In preparing for the successful conduct of the Uni- 
versity this year, the trustees were on their job at their 
meeting in June and since then through various com- 
mittees which have been frequently in session. On 
September 17 the faculty, recruited by a score and a 
half of new members, resolutely took up its task anew. 
Oh College Night, the student council and the student 
body boldly accepted the challenge of the year. 

It now remains for the alumni, the other big fourth, 
with all of their potential power, to accept the challenge 
of full participation in the greater work of the Univer- 
sity ; and the date for doing this is University Day! 


What's It All About? 

A question which The Review hears from time to 
time is, "What's all this stir to meet and organize 
about ?" 

The answer is quite obvious. It is to unite the entire 
alumni in promoting the common welfare of the Uni- 
versity in a consistent, properly coordinated effort. 

In every one of the thirteen decades of the Univer- 
sity's history, some splendid alumni achievement has 
been wrought. However, in every instance, the 
achievement has been wrought not by all the alumni 
but by only a part. . The effort has not been pro- 
gressive and cumulative, and, to that extent, has fallen 
short of the greatest maximum good. 

To bring about this complete coordination and unity 
of purpose is the goal of the present Association lead- 
ers. The}- are persistently, and wisely, attempting to 
lay foundations upon which a type of work can be 
based in the future which will be far more effective 



than anv that has hitherto been clone. Their objective 
is a most excellent one. and should receive the fullest 
support of every alumnus. 

□ □□ 
What Other Alumni Do 

Recently the editor of The Review visited the 
campuses of Yale, Columbia, and Princeton Univer- 
sities and Haverford College. Among other things 
which he noted the following, to him. were significant : 

Eighty-five percent of the 11,000 or 12,000 alumni of 
Princeton subscribe for the Princeton Alumni Weekly. 
The secretaries of thirty classes — every class back to 
1893 — send in blanket subscriptions, with checks for 
everv member of the classes, with the result that when 
Princeton wants to "get something across" to the 
alumni, there is a medium at hand. 

The buildings in which the Yale and Princeton 
Presses are housed were not erected by the Universi- 
ties but were received as donations. The Yale Press 
building is a memorial given by the Trumbull family 
in memory of one of its members : and the Princeton 
Press building, with complete equipment, is the gift of 
Charles Scribner. the publisher, who was a member of 
the class of 1875. When the Princeton Press was 
established, between two and three hundred alumni 
placed a standing order with it for copies of every 
book it issued. Within the past twelye months an 
alumnus of Yale gave the Press $40,000 to place a 
complete set of "The Chronicles of America'' (a fifty- 
volume set published by the Yale Press) in every high 
school in the State of Connecticut. He wanted to 
advertise Yale and chose that indirect but splendid way 
to do it ! 

The flag pole in front of the library at Columbia is 
the gift of a class. It is splendidly placed where it 
can be seen from all the adjoining buildings, and it is 
the sort that ought to be erected somewhere on this 

One of the main entrances into the Haverford cam- 
pus is through a beautiful stone gateway. Although it is 
festooned with ivy, enough of the inscription which it 
bears is visible to show that it was erected in 1901 by 
the class of 1899 in memory of one of its most beloved 

A very different memorial is to be seen in the 
Princeton library. It consists of eight or ten shelves 
of new books in the general reading room purchased 
with the income of a $40,000 fund provided by the 
class of I'M 5 in memory of one of its members. The 
purpose of the foundation is to place within easy reach 
of the students new hooks such as Well's "Outline of 
History," Thompson's "Outline of Science." Lowell's 
"Public Opinion," and other similar works representa- 
tive of the thought and life of today. 

Columbia alumni established a loyalty fund three 
years ago. The first year approximately $10,000 was 
subscribed', the second year the contributions were 
more than doubled, and last year, the third, they 
reached $60,000 for the year. Total contributions to 
the Yale Alumni Loyalty Fund for the year were 
approximately $500,000. 

A Princeton alumnus quoted another Princeton 
alumnus as saying that "it didn't cost him much to get 
through college, but it was expensive as the devil to be 
an alumnus" — which, of course, it may be. But at 
the same time it gives a wonderful opportunity for 
intelligent, helpful service!

Give Us Your Assistance 

Readers of The Review will receive with this issue 
a four-page supplement in which appear the names of 
alumni concerning whom the central office does not 
have sufficient information for entry in the forth-com- 
ing alumni catalogue. The supplement is sent with 
the hope that alumni will read and check it carefully 
and return it at the earliest possible moment. .

Well Bestowed Praise 

The Greensboro Nctcs of September 8. under the 
heading "A Southern Journalistic Triumph," bestows 
the following well deserved praise upon The Journal 
of Social Forces published by the University Press : 

77 r Journal of Social Forces for September, just from the 
press, is devoted to the social force of education, and its table 
of contents presents an imposing array of celebrated names. 
It includes Franklin H. Giddings. Professor of Sociology in 
Columbia University ; John Dewey, regarded by thousands as 
the greatest living American philosopher ; Harry Woodburn 
Chase. President of the University of North Carolina ; Wil- 
liam H. Kilpatrick, of Teachers' college; John J. Tigert, 
United States Commissioner of Education, and Roscoe Pound, 
Dean of the School of Law in Harvard University. 

When a magazine published in North Carolina presents a 
group of contributors of such tremendous power, that magazine 
must command respect throughout the nation, not merely for 
itself, but in some measure for the commonwealth which pro- 
duces it. "If it can succeed." is the comment of one journal of 
national circulation, "it will go far to answer the charge that 
literary work and high-grade journalism are impossible under 
the present condition of intellectual thralldom in the south." 
Technically, it has already succeeded. It has gone at a stride 
into the very forefront of sociological journals, and it wants 
now only the hearty support of the southern public to make its 
success complete. It is gratifying to note that North Carolina 
has responded nobly, giving the Journal 25 per cent of its cir- 
culation, with New York next in order with 10 per cent and 
Georgia third with 7 per cent : but then comes a long string of 
Northern and Western states ahead of the rest of the South. 

Dr. Odum and his collaborators at Chapel Hill are giving 
North Carolina and the South a thing of immense value — not 
entertainment, but information of the solidest sort. It is in 
order now t.. express appreciation of their work and to hope 
that they are nut easting their pearls before swine. 


Signal Honors for the Faculty 

The late President Graham, in one of his reports to 
the trustees, used the very significant expression, "The 
faculty is the heart of tile University." 

In the light of tin's statement, alumni will find much 
satisfaction in announcements which have appeared in 
the press involving three members of the present fac- 
ility and emphasizing the fine quality of the Univer- 
sity's "Heart." Dr. Edwin Greenlaw has recently been 

appointed by the Overseers of Harvard University as 



an alumni member of the Visiting Committee for the 
year 1923-24, and at the triennial meeting of the Asso- 
ciation of British and American Professors of English 
in New York in June, he was appointed one of the 
three American members of the executive committee. 
During the summer Dr. Archibald Henderson, now on 
leave of absence for a year of study, was tendered the 
presidency of the University of Oklahoma; and on 
September 11, [(.inner-President F. P. Venable was 
appointed by the American Chemical Society as a 
member of a special committee to award a prize of 
$25,000 established by the Allied Chemical and Dye 
Corporation of New York to the American chemist 
who, within a given period, makes contributions of 
outstanding merit in the science of chemistrv. Other 
members of the committee on which Dr. Venable is to 
serve are : Edgar F.- Smith, Provost Emeritus of the 
University of Pennsylvania ; Prof. C. F. Chandler, of 
Columbia University; Dr. Ira Remsen, President 
Emeritus of Johns Hopkins; and Dr. T. W. Richards, 
of Harvard.

Forty Years of the Mitchell Society 

With the beginning of the present year, the Elisha 
Mitchell Scientific Society rounds out forty years of 
its existence. Founded October 1, 1883, by a group of 
scientists in the University faculty, it has maintained 
its existence in the University and has been one of the 
chief promoters of high scholarship in the University 
and State. Its publication, The Journal of the Elisha 
Mitchell Scientific Society, has steadily grown in im- 
portance and influence in the 'field of general science, 
and is regularly received by the leading scientific 
societies and libraries of the world. 

It isn't the function, possibly, of The Review to 
propose methods of procedure for the Society, but it 
takes this opportunity to express the hope that the 
Society, upon its fortieth anniversary, will celebrate 
the occasion in keeping with its great importance. At 
all events, The Review wishes the Society and Pro- 
fessor F. P. Venable, its first president, many happy 


Professional Standards 

Announcement was made following the meeting of 
the American Pharmaceutical Association at Asheville 
in early September that, beginning in 1925, graduation 
from a three-year college of pharmacy would be 
required as a prerequisite to securing license to practice 
in North Carolina. 

The Review has followed with unusual interest the 

steady advancement of standards by North Carolina 
pharmacists. Such action, which lays emphasis on 
protracted, scientific training in accord with approved 
standards, greatly assists the University in maintaining 
high standards in the conduct of its School of Phar- 
macy, and is to be welcomed by every one who would 
have the profession of pharmacy placed on a more 
permanent professional basis. 

In this connection, The Review goes on record as 
hoping that action along similar lines may soon be 
taken by the Bar Association concerning the securing 
of law license. The University requires three years of 
study for the completion of its law course. But the 
State's requirements are such as to make the Univer- 
sity's requirements inoperative unless the student elects 
voluntarily to prolong the period of his study. And, 
accordingly, until the requirements of the State are 
changed the setting-up of higher standards throughout 
the State will of necessity be carried on with difficulty. 

□ □□ 
Manning Hall 

To Dean McGehee and his colleagues in the School 
of Law, The Review and the University offer hearty 
congratulations upon the completion arid occupancy at 
the beginning of the term of Manning Hall, a picture 
of which appears on the front cover of this issue. 

Established in 1843, housed from time to time in 
quarters never adequate to its needs, the School in this 
instance finds a home in the newest and most ade- 
quately equipped building on the campus. 

As it begins this new lap in the long splendid course 
of its existence. The Review wishes it increasing 
success and usefulness. 

A Month Without Diversions 

The University Library seems to have made a dis- 
covery which may or may not be significant. During 
the month of August, the last month of the second 
term of the Summer School, when only 500 students 
were enrolled, more books were issued over the loan 
desk than during any month in the regular academic 
year 1922-23 when 1900 regular students were in 

So far, the Library has not reached a satisfactory 
conclusion why this was the case. It realizes, however, 
that there were no football, or basketball, or baseball 
games, no soul-absorbing political contests, no mati- 
nees and night performances at the Durham theatres, 
but just a month of steady, purposeful study — which, 
after all, is one of the objectives of college attendance ! 




The Carolina Playmakers have 
been invited by Brock Pemberton, 
the producef, to visit New York 
this season but they cannot accept. 

The members of the cast would 
have to be away from the campus 
for an indefinite period and such a 
move the University authorities 
have not yet sanctioned. Further, 
the energies of the organization are 
now directed toward the construc- 
tion of a Model Community Theatre 

in the old law building. They may 
go next season. 

Elizabeth Taylor is playing in

More Than 2,100 in University This Year— Freshman Class of 750— President 

Chase Urges Search for Truth 

The University came into the 
130th year of its existence on Sep- 
tember 20th with an enrolment of 
mure than 2,000. an increase of 200 
over the attendance at the same 
time last year and double the enrol- 
ment ten years ago. 

Late arrivals were expected to 
swell the number to 2,100. and ad- 
ditional registrations for the second 
and third quarters will undoubtedly 
carry the total for the year beyond 
the 2,200 expected. Add to these 
the 1875 registered for the two ses- 
sions of the past Summer School 
and the total registration for the 
year will be more than 4,000. 

The freshman class, according to 
latest estimates, will number 750, 
• increase of 75. Both the Schools 
i >f Law and Pharmacy have record 
enrolments of more than 100 each, 
and the School of Medicine, whose 
facilities limit the number, is taxed 
i" its capacity. 

Dr. Chase's Welcome 

President Chase, in his address 
of welcome to the old and new men, 
explained the University's aims. 
"A university's own peculiar task, 
he said, is with the truth. This is 
the central fact of its life — the fact 
that here in an atmosphere which 
gives time for thought and which is 
designed through and through to 
stimulate thought men can come to 
Mime understanding of truth about 
their world. 

" 'Seek ye the truth and the truth 
shall make you free'." he urged. 
"Respect fm" facts and a knowledge 
of some fundamental facts — these, 
then, it is your business to get 
here. But if you would enroll 
yourselves under the banner of 
truth, you must do more. You 
must learn the danger of the closed 
mind. You must learn not to rely 
blindly on authority. You must 
learn to examine and analyse facts 
and to discard what you think are 
facts when others take their place." 

Seek the Truth! 

"The university believes in self- 
reliance. It believes that the best 
way to form character is to treat 
men as morally responsible beings. 
It believes none the less strongly 
that man's understanding ripens by 


As The Review goes to 
press, figures obtained from 
the Registrar show that the 
registration has passed the 2.- 
1.00 mark. By way of con- 
trast, ten years ago the regis- 
tration at the beginning of the 
fall term was less than 1.000. 

Indications are that the to- 
tal enrolment for the year will 
be well beyond the 2.200 ex- 
pected. All departments and 
professional and graduate 
schools show a notable in- 
crease. Enrolments in the pro- 
fessional schools are : Law, 
115; Pharmacy, 110; Medi- 
cine, 70. The Graduate School 
has 326, compared with a to- 
tal of 279 last vear. 

exercising it in an atmosphere of in- 
tellectual freedom, stimulating it to 
seek the truth. The university be- 
lieves neither in intellectual anarchy 
nor in moral anarchy. It believes 
that a man who fails to accept his 
moral responsibility who refuses to 
take advantage of his opportunity 
to develop character, has no busi- 
ness in the university community. 
And it believes just as strongly that 
unless along with intellectual free- 
dom there goes a growing passion 
for truth, there is no salvation 
through university men for the 
American ideal." 


The present influx of students 
has given acute emphasis to the 
need for a larger postoffice. despite 
the fact the present one is only four 
years old. A student body of more 
than 2,000 by 1923 was not con- 
templated when the present build- 
ing was designed. 

The situation at this writing is 
causing great inconvenience both to 
the postoffice clerks and students. 
Several hundred students were un- 
able to rent a box, and they have to 
stand in a long waiting line, extend- 
ing sometimes out to the sidewalk, 
in order to get their mail. At no 

time during the day or night, until 
the office is closed, does the line 

Several remedies are suggested. 
Some would do away with the post- 
master's private office and thereby 
add more boxes. Others would es- 
tablish a branch postoffice on the 
campus, while still others would 
have dormitory delivery. The sit- 
uation was the principal topic of 
discussion at a recent faculty meet- 
ing, and a committee was appointed 
to confer with the postal authori- 
ties with the view to alleviating the 
situation. At this time the general 
feeling is that something must be 
done quickly. • 


The School of Education of the 
University inaugurates this fall a 
movement of expansion looking to- 
ward leadership in the south. Three 
members have been added to the 
faculty during the summer, a Bu- 
reau of Educational Research is es- 
tablished for the first time — this to 
conduct scientific research in the 
public schools of the State — and the 
school now has its own library and 
reading room in addition to the 
University's central library. 

The new faculty members are 
.Arthur Melville Jordan. Ph.D., pro- 
fessor of educational psychology; 
Esek Ray Mosher, Ed.D.. professor 
of education ; George Bryan Logan. 
Jr., A.B., librarian. 

Prof. N. W. Walker is acting 
dean in the absence of Prof. M. C. 
S. Noble on leave. 


The second annual coaching 
school conducted by the University 
was held last month. Twenty-eight 
preparatory and high school coaches 
from this and several other states 
attended. There were lectures on 
the theory of football, baseball, 
basketball, track and tennis along 
with practical demonstrations. 

Coach Bob Eetzer, who was in 
charge, said the results were grati- 
fying and warranted the continu- 
ance of the school. 




Interiors of Old East and Old West Remodelled — New Physical Education Building to Seat 
4,000 — Fifty New Tennis Courts — Three New Dormitories 

Many changes have taken place 
on the campus and in Chapel Hill 
since last Commencement. The 
building program has been carried 
forward. The new law building, to 
be known as Manning Hall, is com- 
pleted and is one of the most beau- 
tiful on the campus. It is on the 
site of the old athletic field. It has 
two stories and a basement and con- 
tains four lecture halls, a general 
reception hall, a library and reading 
room and several seminar rooms 
and private offices. The old law 
building during the year will be 
converted into a theatre and work- 
shop for The Carolina Playmakers. 

Old East Saved 

The Old West has been remodelled 
011 the interior. It has been equipped 
with modern conveniences and is 
now one of the most comfortable 
buildings on the campus. Its two 
lecture rooms were converted into 
dormitory space, adding ten living 

The Old East, which was pro- 
nounced unsafe last summer be- 
cause of defective walls, it has been 
possible to save by building a con- 
crete skeleton inside the building and 
tying the outer wails to it. Once 
this is done, experts say it will be 
good for another hundred years. 
The northern portion of the build- 
ing is completed but the middle and 
si iiithern portions will not be ready 
for occupancy before Christmas. 
This is the oldest state university 
building in the country. 

The Carr building has undergone 
interior repairs that did away with 
several of its rooms. All three 
buildings have been equipped with 
fire-proof stairways and fire escapes. 
Murphy Hall, the new building 

for languages, which was being 
partly used when the University ad- 
journed for the summer, is now en- 
tirely finished. 

New Athletic Building 

A new road, to be known proba- 
bly as South road, runs to the rear 
of the athletic field, intersecting the 
Pittsboro and Raleigh roads, and a 

cond arm of the road will skirt 
the cemetery to the rear and open 
into the Raleigh road. 

Just to the south of this road, and 



Eyery alumnus who possi- 
bly can will attend the Caro- 
lina-Virginia game in Chapel 
Hill Thanksgiving. A perusal 
of the notes on both "Yellow 
Man" No. 1 and No. 2 would 
convince anyone as to that. 

"I'll see you Thanksgiving. 
Tell Charlie Woollen to re- 
serve ten seats for my family. 
Reserve places for our class." 
These are typical of hundreds 
of hastily scrawled alumni 
thoughts received by The Re- 
view. Undoubtedly it will 
eclipse by far any previous 

to the rear of the athletic field, will 
stand the new physical education 
building, a one-story steel structure 
covering floor space 300 by 100 feet, 
and having a seating capacity of 4,- 
000. The material for the structure 
is on the ground and will be assem- 
bled this fall. This building will 
provide space for eight basketball 
courts, indoor baseball and tennis 
and will greatly facilitate the mass 
athletics program inaugurated this 

The new road forms the southern 
boundary of the campus for some 
years to come. About sixty feet to 
the north of it and directly behind 
the South Building will stand the 
last building of the cross designed 
by McKim, Meade and White, of 
which one arm, Murphey. Saunders 
and Manning halls, is now com- 
plete. Grading and path-making 
within the completed area has been 

East of the quadrangle of re- 
cently constructed dormitories on 
the site of the old freshman athletic 
field, on the other side of the Ral- 
eigh road, three new dormitories 
are going up. In design they will 
be similar to the quadrangle group 
and each will comfortably care for 
120 students. 

South of the site of the three new 
buildings fifty new tennis courts are 
being laid out. West of the tennis 

courts, on the other side of the road, 
is the class athletic field, which was 
improved during the summer. Close 
by work has begun on two new ath- 
letic fields. 

Graham Memorial 

The Graham Memorial Building, 
to be the center of student life on 
the campus, will be begun this fall. 
The campaign during the summer 
has increased the amount pledged to 
$250,000, and the campaign will be 
continued until Christmas by which 
time it is hoped the $400,000 goal 
will be reached. The campaign is 
in charge of W. Jay Ward, acting 
for the committee. 

The Infirmary has been enlarged, 
twenty-four beds being added. The 
new D. K. E. fraternity house is 
just completed. Work on the Caro- 
lina Inn, near the West gate, is 
progressing rapidly. The new Bap- 
tist Church is completed and is be- 
ing used. Several members of the 
faculty are building homes. 

Altogether the University will 
have expended for buildings and 
permanent improvements during the 
four-year period beginning with the 
summer of 1921- the sum of $3,100,- 
000, not counting the expenditure 
for the Graham Memorial building, 
which is being built by subscrip- 
tions from the alumni. The Uni- 
versity's estimate of its needs to 
care for 3,000 students, made in 
1920. was $5,500,000, and about 
$2,500,000 is still essential to com- 
plete the program. 

Dr. Thorndike Saville, Associate 
Professor of Hydraulic and Sani- 
tary Engineering in the University,

ticle which appeared in the Journal

in the Journal of Experimental 
Medicine, reporting on his investi- 
gations of the effects of X-rays on 
lymph cells in connection with 




For the first time the matricula- 
tion was conducted in Memorial 
Hall. A large sign notified every- 
one to enter at the east door, and 
all the officials concerned with reg- 
istration were seated around in a 
circle. It reminded one strangely 
of one of the army mills through 
which we passed, and an army of 
2000 men passed through this mill. 
Do you remember how you used to 
bring your chair and sit in the line 
by the hour at the Alumni Build- 

Expect 3,000 Students in 1926 

Passing the two thousand mark 
reminds me that at the time of my 
entrance in 1912. the University 
registered about 850 students, and 
those with good imaginations 
glimpsed the day when at least we 
should number 1000. Two such 
milestones have been passed in the 
succeeding eleven years and it is 
almost as certain as the law of 
gravitation that in 1926 there will 
be 3000 students. When you think 
of what this steady increase neces- 
sitates in terms of feeding, housing, 
teaching and supervising, you real- 
ize that the University's earnest ap- 
peal for increased funds comes with 
a stronger force than the ambition 
of any administration for expan- 
sion. It has its roots in' the swelling 
stream of life that sweeps young 
North Carolina through the high 
school course. 

Freshmen of Many Types 

Just think of a boy'eighteen years 
old keeping house for his father and 
five other children for five years, 
working on a farm and finishing his 
high school course at the same time. 
That is the sort of stuff that our 
boys are made of and that is the 
sort of earnestness which brings 
them to the Mill. Another man has 
been out of school fur five years. 
I le has worked in Chicago. Denver, 
and Kansas City. He has sold pea- 
nuts on the trains in Colorado. He 
brings thai sort of background and 
experience to his course here. An- 
other boy comes from the moun- 
tains in the West. He wants to 
take enough law to get a lii 
from the State Board, then lie plan- 
to go West, as O. Henry did 
make his living practicing law and 
then to write stories, as < ). Henry 
did. He is afraid to take English 
courses at the University, for fear 



FOR $5.50 

The Publications Union, 
through its Board, composed 
of three students and two fac- 
ulty members, issues The Tar 
Heel. The Carolina Magazine, 
and the Yackety Vaek. To in- 
sure the financial success of 
the student publications, the 
union's constitution, adopted 
by the students, authorizes the 
Cniversity to collect an annual 
flat fee of $5.50 from each 
student. The fee is divided 
into three installments, pav- 
able as follows: $1.84 fall 
quarter, $1.83 winter quarter, 
and $1.83 spring quarter. 
Under the old system the 
three publications cost $9. 

they will cramp his style. He real- 
izes that he is dreaming an ambi- 
tious dream, but he is willing to pay 
with the years of his youth for its 
realization. These are just some of 
the countless cases where beneath 
the shy and uniform exterior of the 
freshman class there lies the in- 
finitely varied nature and aspiration. 

The Publications Union 

I suppose most of us remember 
how, for the first few nights, our 
doors were bombarded by the can- 
vassers. We subscribed to the Tar 
Heel; we subscribed to the Yackety 
Yack; we subscribed to the 
University Magazine, and it seemed 
about a hundred other different 
things, or else we did not subscribe 
and had a hard time explaining 
why. This year every student is 
automatically a subscriber to the 
Tar Heel, the Yackety Yack, and 
the Carolina Magazine, and a 
smoothly functioning Publications 
I "nion, which guarantees the best of 
business management and the high- 
cM possible standard of publica- 
tions, marks one more dream real- 

Changes in Fraternity System 

The fraternity men say that 
never before was there such a hec- 
tic season as this fall. In the first 
plai e, the new fraternity rule makes 
tlie rushing season shorter for this 
year's Ereshmen and the fraternities 

are anxious to get last year's prob- 
lems settled. In the second place, 
several fraternities have larger 
houses than last year and have 
splendid reasons for desiring to fill 
them. Then there are those that 
claim that the Class of '26 has more 
titan its share of outstanding men. 
lie that as it may, the net result of 
all these forces is that one moving 
through the dormitories for the last 
night or two was apt to see a half 
dozen Betas, Zetas, or DKEs rush- 
ing violently from dormitory to 
dormitory and passing similar 
crowds on similar errands with cor- 
dial greetings that betoken the good 
sportsmanship which maintains it- 
self even through such fierce com- 

Memories of Alumni Revived 

I wonder if there was ever any 
place in the world where friends 
greet each other so cordially as on 
the Hill. I shall never have another 
thrill like the ones I had at Univer- 
sity Station as I returned for my 
sophomore year. The long wait for 
the dinky to get ready for its trip, 
and the many friends of last year. 
all excited over the prospects of be- 
ing old men for the first time — 
there never was any thing like it. 
It seems a pity that the ritual of 
University Station should have 
hen abolished by the jitney lines to 
Durham. However, the campus 
has resounded and the corridors 
rung with many a hearty hail, and 
a -lap on the back and a handclasp, 
during the past week. It makes an 
old alumnus wish that he could be a 
sophomore once again. 

To Be a Sophomore Again! 

The pleasant recollection of being 
a sophomore brings crowding with 
it many memories of the various 
sensations of being a freshman. 
The tense vividness of all the new 
impressions, the "gone" sensation 
in the middle that is the first symp- 
tom of sea-sickness and home-sick- 
ness, witnessing the first scrimmage 
out on the old athletic field in the 
crisp cool air of late September, the 
curious looking teachers, the man 
who roomed next door, the heads 
that popped out (jf windows and 
yelled "fresh" on the slightest pro- 
vocation. Well, I could go on for- 
ever, but we have all had the same 
experiences. — F. F. B., '16. 




Record Number of October 1 2th Celebrations Planned — Big Out-of -State 
Gatherings — W. N. Everett '86, Speaker at University 

"More local alumni associations 
will celebrate October 12th this year 
than on any of the University's pre- 
ceding birthdays," says Secretary 
Grant. "And that statement," he 
continues, "is not merely the result 
of the tendency of the imagination 
to deal in superlatives, but is a fact 
already assured." 

Available information indicates 
that there are an even 100 groups 
of alumni sufficiently large and 
compact to hold successful gather- 
ings and form and perpetuate lo- 
cal associations. There will be more 
when the thousand names on the 
list of "dead and missing" are 
checked up by the Central office. 

Sixty-five groups have already 
formed local organizations. Nego- 
tiations are now under way by Sec- 
retary Grant with prominent and 
interested alumni in each of the re- 
maining, and it is expected that the 
work in these groups will be com- 
pleted on ( tetober 12th. 

Everett to Speak 

The celebrations will head-up in 
the one in Memorial Hall, which 
will be addressed by W. N. Ever- 
ett, '86. Secretary of State. This 
meeting of faculty and students will 
be joined in by alumni of Orange 
County. Other unique features of 
this year's celebration will be the 
two state-wide meetings of the 
Georgia and Florida alumni — the 
former in Atlanta on the evening 
of the 12th and the latter in Jack- 
sonville on the 13th. These two 
gatherings will be addressed by 
Professor W. S. Bernard, '00, of 
the Department of Greek. Mr. 
Bernard has long been interested in 
University alumni work. Then 
there will be the first meeting of 
the Cuba alumni, being prepared bv 
Mr. A. E. McNamara. Jr.. '13, 
Caibarien. Cuba ; and the meeting 
of the Anson County alumni at the 
tomb of the University's Founder 
— General William Richardson 

Out-of-State Groups 

At least a dozen out-of-state 
groups are already preparing their 
celebration for the 12th. 

"One hundred successful gather- 
ings," says Secretary Grant in his 

call, "means a great opportunity for 
the General Association for the 
coming year. A large part of the 
year's success will be dependent 
upon these October 12th gather- 

Several important plans affecting 
the general association will be pre J 
sented each group for consideration. 

A football game between Caro- 
lina and Trinity in Durham and a 
reception in the evening to the fac- 
ulty and townspeople by President 
Chase are other features of the 
Chapel Hill celebration.

Editor, Alumni Review : ' 

Dear Sir — I have just returned to 
the office after a short absence, and 
find the June number of your 
Alumni Review. I like it very 
much. The stories struck me as be- 
ing very well written, and the pic- 
tures were good, too. I am sure 
you must have put a lot of hard 
work into it. 

I also noticed a wealth of alumni 
notes. I, wish we could arrange 
next year so as to carry just as 
many notes about our alumni. 

I am glad to see that the Alumni 
Catalogue is making such rapid pro- 
gress. I suppose that is to be laid 
at Grant's door. Please remember 
me to him, and extend my congratu- 
lations for his good work. 

Very sincerely yours,

One Dollar Membership Fee Abandoned — Most of Revenue From the 
$5,000 Pledged in 1920— Sustaining Membership Fee 

Below is a detailed financial state- 
ment showing source of all monies 
received during the first year of 
operation of the Central Alumni 
■< )fhce. Space will not permit the 
list of the 183 who sent the one dol- 
lar fee to Mr. Rankin in 1921-22 
(as a result of 3,500 notices) ; nor 
the 346 who in 1922-23 sent the 
dollar fee. (This as a result of 6,- 
500 notices). A total of only $41.00 
was collected by local secretaries 
and remitted. 

The $5,000.00 Underwriters Fund 

In 1920, Mr. Connor, then Presi- 
dent of the Association, set about 
raising a sufficient fund to employ 
a full-time Secretary. This was to 
enable the work to start as the As- 
sociation had no treasury. 

Fifty-one men obligated them- 
selves to advance $100.00 each. As 
no Secretary was elected until 1922, 
the payment of the pledges was not 
called for. During that interval 
four of the original number died; 
three others denied making the 
pledge, doubtless due to a misunder- 
standing to begin with or to the 
long delay. 

From the remaining forty-four 
money has been received as fol- 
lows :

V. M. I. GAME HERE NOV. 10? 

At this writing every indication is 
that the Carolina-V. M. I. football 
game, scheduled for November 10, 
will be played in Chapel Hill. Rich- 
mond, where it was played last year, 
again made a strong bid, but stu- 
dent and alumni sentiment seemed 
to be in favor playing it on Emer- 
son Field. 

Eighty-five candidates reported 
for varsity football practice on Sep- 
tember 10 and prospects for a win- 
ning team are excellent. Eleven 
letter men are back, one of whom. 
Jack Merritt, has been ruled ineligi- 
ble on account of his studies. The 
others are : 

Chris Fordham, who played 
guard and tackle in 1922; Captain 
"Casey" Morris, end, who is play- 
ing his fourth year ; Poindexter, 
powerful 190-pound guard, who 
has played three seasons ; Pierce 
Matthews and Herman Mclver, 
tackles, who played most of the 
time last season ; Tommy Shepard 
and Henry Lineberger, ends, and 
three good backs, George Sparrow, 
A. M. McDonald, Jr., and P. C. 

A number of last year's freshmen 
and scrubs are showing considerable

the Atlantic Hotel, Morehead City, 
on September 4, banqueted, orated 
and exchanged greetings for two 
and one-half hours and formed the 
Cartaret County Alumni Associ-

University alumni held in the 
county. Although there are less 
than forty alumni residing there, 
near eighty attended the meeting. 
Each alumnus and student brought 
a guest.

Three hundred and seventy-five North Carolina physicians took the 1923 summer post-graduate medical courses given by the University Exten- 
sion Division in twenty-four cities throughout the State from Waynesville to Washington. The above picture shows the class which met at Ruther- 
fordton. The University has graduated a large number of medical students who have located in North Carolina and many alumni find them- 
selves again studying at Carolina while taking these courses. The following doctors were members of the Rutherfordton class: F. H. Logan, J. 
C. Twitty, Rutherfordton; G. B. Tustice. '01, L F. Jones, R. L. Ashworth. B. G. Butt. Marion; T. C. Lovelace, Henrietta; W. C. Bostick, G. P. 
Reid, '89, A. C. Duncan, Forest City; C. F. Gold, '10, EHenboro; W. H. Harper. Caroleen; A. A. Rucker, Uree; J. F. Hunt, Spindale; E. A. 
Houser, T. G. Hambrick, Ben Gold, B. H. Palmer, '16, Shelby; T. B. Gold, Lawndale; I.. V. Lee, Lattimore; J. Y. Hambrick, Jr., Boiling 
Springs; F. D. Edwards, Lawndale. The instructor for this group was Dr. Frank A. Chapman of Rush Medical College, Chicago. 




The first edition of Southern Col- 
legiate Sports, a new venture in 
southern sporting enterprises, was 
issued recently. The publication is 
the only one of its kind in the south, 
and if it maintains the standard set 
in this first issue its success would 
seem assured. It is the product of 
two University men, Victor V. 
Young, '23, and C. K. Massey, '25. 
editor and business manager re- 

"We don't want to claim more 
than is justly ours," the magazine 
says editorially, "but it is the pur- 
pose of Southern Intercollegiate 
Sports to give our strong Southern 
teams, heretofore left in the back- 
ground, some genuine worthwhile 
publicity. Then, as one of our 
prominent coaches recently stated, 
'We in the South don't know 
enough about each other. We in 
South Carolina know absolutely 
nothing about football in Louisiana 
and Texas'." 

Tracing the steps leading to ath- 
letic expansion in the South, culmi- 
nating in the comprehensive inter- 
collegiate schedules of 1923, the 
editors continue : 

"Compared with these earlier 
years in which we expended very 
little upon our college athletics, we 
are now building expensive stadi- 
ums, appropriating huge sums an- 
nually for maintenance and new fa- 
cilities ; paying coaches salaries in 
some cases almost equaling that oi 
the president of the institution. 
This athletic progress, affording 
more adequate facilities and expert 
coaching, has put our Southern 
teams, heretofore clearly out- 
stripped by Western and North- 
eastern aggregations, upon the ath- 
letic map. Our football, basketball 
and noticeably our baseball teams 
are giving the best of 'em hard Eon- 
tests. Recall the recent intersec- 
ts mal games taken on by Vander- 
bilt, Mississippi A. & M., Centre 
and Georgia Tech." 

The magazine "is not the organ 
or mouthpiece of any conference, 
clique or combination of schools but 
a synthetic effort to present fit news 
concerning Southern sports and 
champion clean, ethical standards 
and our college athletics." 

An undertaking both laudable 
and ambitious ! Should the editors 
carry out their plans, as expressed 
editorially, they will have carved in 

the athletic hall of fame a niche for 
the magazine and themselves as 
well. It deserves the commenda- 
tion and support of all lovers of 
clean sports. 

Dr. H. W. Chase, president of 
the University, writing in the Sep- 
tember issue of the Journal of So- 
cial Forces, stresses the social re- 
sponsibility of the University. 

Defining teaching, research and 
extension as the three main func- 
tions of this institution, he empha- 
sizes teaching as the primary func- 
tion, but points out that "it would 
he tragic were an institution whose 
faculty is made up of competent 
specialists, and supported by citi- 
zens generally, not to put at the im- 
mediate disposal of men and women 
generally the benefits of its knowl- 
edge and skill in an immediate way." 

This number of the journal, 
which is published by the Univer- 
sity Press and devoted to social in- 
terpretation, rounds out the first 
year of its existence. The special 
emphasis of the issue is that of the 
social principles of education. 

Five members of the University 
faculty are contributors to The 
Manly Anniversary Studies in Lan- 
guage and Literature, which re- 
cently came from the press. It is a 
volume of original research studies, 
published to commemorate the com- 
pletion by John Matthews Manly of 
twenty-five years' service as head of 
the Department of English in the 
University of Chicago. It has been 
prepared by his students and col- 
leagues as a "testimonial of appre- 
ciation of his fine scholarship and

The leading article in the Sep- 
tember number of Science is the 
presidential address on "The Size of 
the Universe." delivered by Dr. 
Archibald Henderson before the 
North Carolina Academy of Science 
in Greensboro last May. 

Miss Aline Hughes, '23, of Hen- 
derson, who made a tour of Europe 
this past summer, contributed 
through the Greensboro Daily Nezvs 
a weekly series of interesting arti- 
cles describing places of interest 
covered in her travels. 

Dr. Chas. M. Byrnes, '02, now 
Associate in Clinical Neurology at 
Johns Hopkins University, has been 
elected president of the Philadelphia 
Neurological Society, one of the 
oldest and most distinguished neu- 
rological societies of the country. 
Dr. Byrnes is an active teacher, 
practitioner, and investigator in the 
field of neurology. His latest paper 
deals with The Treatment of Mul- 
tiple Sclerosis and appeared in the 
Journal of the American Medical 
Association (Vol. 78, 1922). 

Dr. H. S. Willis, A.B..'14, is con- 
tinuing his experimental study of 
tuberculosis, with the support of 
the Kenneth Dows Tuberculosis 
Research Fund of the Medical 
Clinic of the Johns Hopkins Hos- 
pital and University. He reports 
on these studies in three recent 
papers published in the American 
Review of Tuberculosis. 

F. Merton Coulter, '13, Profes- 
sor of History in the University of 
Georgia, is the contributor of an 
important section of a two-volume 
history of Kentucky recently pub- 
lished by the American Historical 
Society. The title of Dr. Coulter's 
article is "The Cincinnati Southern 
Railroad and the Struggle for 
Southern Commerce, 1865-1872." 

' > W. Hyman, A.B. 1910, M.A. 
1911, Professor of Histology and 
Embryology in the Medical College 
of the University of Tennessee, has 
recently published a paper on the 
development of Crustacea with the 
lively title: Adventures in the Life 
of a Fiddler Crab (Report of the 
Smithsonian Institute. Washing- 
ton. 1922). 



This new department has struck a responsive chord. The alumni are sending in stuff about themselves 
— not all — but many. Secretary Grant's yellow slips No. 1 and 2 are coming in with every mail, loaded with 
alumni news. Those who lost their "Yellow Man" are using their own stationery. Again we say, keep it up! 
Send in items about yourself as well as the other fellow. How many alumni, for instance, thought of sending

Around the World in a Ford 

Robert Rice Reynolds, '06, former war 
correspondent, of Asheville, is on his way 
around the world in a Ford automobile. 
He announced before leaving that on his 
return, January 1st, he will run for lieu- 
tenant governor. The Washington Her- 
ald on August 12th carried a long news 
story concerning his trip, reprinted here- 
with in part : 

"Around the World in an Automobile" 
will be the merry tune piped by Bob Rey- 
nolds, of Asheville, N. C, former Wash- 
ingtonian, as he flivvers up the main 
street of Casabalanca, Morocco, or Hong- 
kong, China. 

Mr. Reynolds, globe trotter, who in 
1007 was a reporter on The Washington 
Tiincs. is now a lawyer in Asheville, N. 
C. He is a candidate for lieutenant gov- 
ernor of his State, but isn't letting a little 
thing like that interfere with his plans 
for a world junket. 

Mr. Reynolds arrived in Washington 
yesterday in' company with Wheeler W. 
Jennings, photographer, who will accom- 
pany him on the tour. 

The globe trotters will drive a special

transmission Ford car, painted battleship 
gray, with khaki waterproof canopy top 
of prairie schooner type, with three port 
holes, covered by brass screening, on each 
side. Beneath the canopy is a full size 
lied, under which is stowed a two burner 
camp gasoline stove, folding table and 
cooking utensils. On each side there are 
three compartments holding clothing, bed- 
ding, equipment and typewriter. 

The car carries two blocks and tackles, 
two extra tires, and on the end-gate, are 
hatchet, spade and pick, bolted down to 
prevent theft. 

"Boh" Reynolds was a member of the 
varsity football team of 190S and captain 
of the varsity track team that year. 
While on the Hill he roomed with Rufus 
Woodcock and George Pritchard of 
Asheville. He began the practice of law 
in Asheville in 1907 and was solicitor of 
tin 15th Judicial District for four years. 

Dr. Venable Honored 

Dr. Francis P. Venable, Kenan profes- 
sor of chemistry in the University, has 
been named by the American Chemical 
Society as one of five nationally famous 
educators and scientists who are to carry 
out the conditions of the gift of $500,000 
to found the American chemical prize. 
The annual value of the award is $25,000, 
and the donor is the Allied Chemical and 
Dye Corporation of New York. Mr. 
Venable was a member of the original 
committee which was charged with fix- 
ing the conditions. The prize is to go 
to a chemist of either sex, in America, 
who has made a contribution of outstand- 
ing merit to the science of chemistry. 

Changes Stupefy Brady 

Everett Brady, '81, now a professor of 
Latin in Smith College, revisited the Hill 
recently. He said the only place that 
had not changed in forty-two years was 
the old Winston home, now occupied by 
Prof. Horace Williams. The rest of 
Chapel Hill made him feel like Rip Van 
Winkle. He was much interested in find- 
ing bars across the windows of the old 
math, class and intimated that students 
did not have to be kept away in his 

Frank Graham Revisits Hill 

Frank Graham, '09, spent a few days 
on the Hill in September. He was at 
the University of Chicago last year and, 


Who was recently elected Commander of 

the North Carolina Department of the 

American Legion 

while there, received the award of the 
Amherst Fellowship, being selected from 
scores of applicants all over the country. 
From the Hill he went to Charlotte 
and thence to Washington, D. C. There 
he will continue his studies until Christ- 
mas, when he sails for Europe for two 
years of study under the provisions of 
the fellowship. 

New York Alumni Visit Hill 

Louis G. Rountree, known among mem- 
bers of '05 as Lou Rountree, rolled into 
town recently in his Packard sedan, ac- 
companied by J. Hunter Wood, '02. They 
are in the New York office of Alexander 
Sprunt & Sons and were travelling in 
the South on business. 

The changes on the Hill amazed them. 
One of the first questions Mr. Rountree 
asked was: "Where is Sammy Merritt?" 
and on being informed he drove out to 
Carrboro and had a chat with the drug- 
gist who used to be popular with the stu- 
dents when he had a store in Chapel Hill. 
Mr. Rountree looks much the same as 
when a student except that his girth has 
increased about 85 per cent. 



Colonel Bingham, '57, is Eighty-five 

Colonel Robert Bingham, one of the 
State's prominent educators, celebrated 
his eighty-fifth birthday last month. He 
gave a stag supper at his home on Bing- 
ham Heights. Ashcvilk. Gathered about 
him were alumni of Bingham School, of 
which he was formerly commandant, and 
close friends from this and other States. 

The guests included ex-Chief Justice 
Nelson Phillips of Dallas. Tex.; former 
United States Senator \V. R. Webb of 
Belle Buckle, Tenn. ; Henry A. Page of 
Aberdeen; Thomas McDow of York, S. 
C.; W. T. Aycock of Columbia, S. C. ; 
former United States District Attorney 
F. H. Weston of Columbia, S. C. ; Dr. 
Frank Nabers of Birmingham, Ala; H. 
\V. Jackson of Richmond, Va. ; Frank 
Drew of Live Oak. Fla. ; Milton Bailey 
of Bakersville; J. W. Leak of Wades- 
boro; Prof. M. C S. Noble of the Uni- 

Speaking of the birthday party, Prof. 
Noble said on his return to the Hill: "I 
found the Colonel the same delightful 
companion as ever, a little feebje in body 
but with his mind as clear and alert as 
when I was at school under him fifty 
years ago. 

"Col. Bingham was wheeled into the 
room where we had the party, smiling 
and happy. Before him they laid out his 
birthday cake, with eighty-five candles, 
and he and his granddaughter cut it. We 
sat around two or three hours talking 
over old times. He stayed with us the 
whple time. It was amazing how youth- 
ful his face looked — hardly a wrinkle in 
it. There were fifty or sixty present. 
We all came away feeling we had spent 
one of the most agreeable evenings in our 

The Bingham School was founded in 
1793. Robert Bingham succeeded to the 
leadership in 1873 and continued in active 
control until 1920. 

Regarding the University Campus 

J. C. Braswell, '90, of Rocky Mount. 
writes : "I am much interested in the 
Cniversity and feel that it is serving the 
Slate as it should. There is one little 
thing that occurs to me. The front wall 
and entrance to the campus is not in 
keeping with the dignity of the Univer- 
sity. And another thing — I hope the 
new building (Graham Memorial) will 
be far enough back from the street not 
to mar the general appearance." 

Mr. Braswell is president of the 
Planters National Hank of Rocky Mount, 
which has a capital and surplus of more 
than $600,000. He also has extensive 
farming interests. 

Carolina Men in Polo Matches 

Several Carolina alumni in Winston- 
Salem are among a group of men who 
have organized the Winston-Salem Polo 
and Riding Club. Several matches were 
played during the past summer. The 
members of the club hope to stimulate 
interest in the game throughout the

tin, Carl Ogburn and Richard Stockton. 

Reminiscenes of the Eighties 

Frederic W. Simonds, professor of Ge- 
ology in the University of Texas, at Aus- 
tin, writing to Rev. W. A. Betts of 
Cherokee. Tex., says in part: 

Your card has found me. I recall the 
old days at Chapel Hill with much pleas- 
ure and remember you and your songs 
very well indeed. 

William J. Battle, the youngest son of 
President K. P. Battle— a little boy in 
your day on the Hill, has been one of our 
professors here tor a great many years. 
Another U, N. C. man on our faculty is 
Dr. A. Caswell Ellis. "The. prosperity of 
Chapel Hill pleases me greatly. With the 
fine support now given the University I 
can sec no reason why it should not at- 
tain a very high position. I have often 
thought of the sacrifices and labor of Dr. 
Battle. How he struggled with the small 
appropriations then available to place the 
University on its feet. I feel that the 
people of North Carolina owe him a 
great debt for the fostering care be- 
stowed upon their highest institution of 

Dr. Charles W. Dal nicy, who succeeded 
Dr. Albert Ledoux as Director of the Ex- 
periment Station, was < < i it - of my old 
Chape! Hill friends. (Inly last Friday he 
paid me a visit. Hi- has bad a very in- 
teresting career. He became the Presi- 
dent of the University of Tennessee, at 
Knoxville, was Assistant Secretary of 
Agriculture under President Cleveland 
and later became the President of the 
- rsity of Cincinnati. He is now liv- 
ing in Houston. When I first came to 

Texas his aged father was our Professor 
of Philosophy. He was also a remark- 
able man — a Presbyterian preacher, and, 
during the war. Chief of Stonewall Jack- 
ion's Staff. 

Most of the old N. C. professors of 
my time have "laid down life's labors 
and are at rest." At the age of 70 I am 
still in active work. For the past >ix 
weeks I have lectured to classes twice a 
day. Time has wrought great changes. 
Eight years ago my dear wife died. Of 
our three children, a son and daughter 
survive — the latter dutifully caring for 
her father in his old age. An eighteen- 
year-old grandson will become University 
"Fresh" in September. 

Since leaving Chapel Hill in 1881 I re- 
turned but once — in 1895. Winston was 
then President. Of my old students many 
have attained distinction: Alderman, 
President of the University of Virginia; 
Aycock and Craig Governors of the 
State ; Chas. Mclver, who won a great 
reputation as educator; Pell became

Wants Class "Write-Ups" 
C. G. Rose of Fayetteville writes : 
"Let me suggest that each issue of 
The Review have short write-ups of the 
entire living membership of some class — 
say, start with the class of 1855, and give 
all the available, pointed facts about each 
member. Of course, you can't get 'dope' 
on each member, but call for information. 
Then take each class thereafter until the 
entire list is exhausted. Try it out, and 
see how it works. 

"The Hill to me is associated with the 
'boys' and the faculty I knew while there, 
and any information I can get about 
these boys or the faculty I knew there 
helps to keep me in touch with the 

Gen. Carr Quits as Head Soldiers' Home 

Gen. Julian S. Carr resigned last month 
as head of the Old Soldiers' Home in 
Raleigh after serving twenty-five years 
as president and in other capacities. 

"I have held office as president for 
many years," he said, "and now is as 
good time as any for a new man to get 
in. There are other men in the State 
who can hold the position as well and 
better than I. I have given lots of my 
time to the home, but now I want to 
turn the work over to someone else. I 
will still look after the expenditure of 
the Blackwood fund, however." 

General Carr has always been the Con- 
federate veterans' friend. Himself . 
veteran of the civil war on the side of the 
south, he has at all time evinced great 
interest in everything pertaining to the 
old soldiers. He has held the office of 
commander-in-chief of the United Con- 
federate veterans and takes an active part 
in their deliberations. 



Carolina Men at Legion Convention 

The recent American Legion Conven- 
tion in Rocky Mount was like a Carolina 
reunion. Why not have the University 
invite the Legionnaires to Chapel Hijl 
some September and complete the pic- 

Among alumni present were : Wiley 
C. Rodman, the new commander ; Ben 
Thomas, commander of the Rocky Mount 
post ; Henry Stevens, Matt Allen, Ed 
Bridges, Bruce Carraway, "Tap" Thorpe, 
Frank Capps, "Pap" Whitaker, Oliver 
Smith. Bill Graves, "Red" Allen, Mose 
Shapiro, Dr. Charles H. O. Laughing- 
house, MacDaniel Lewis and many others. 

Were the roll called, it would sound 
like a subscription list to The Alumni 
Review. — Francis O. Clarkson, Charotte. 

Rodman Heads State Legion 

Col. Wiley C. Rodman, '99. of Wash- 
ington, N. C, was elected commander of 
the North Carolina Department of the 
American Legion at the convention in 
Rocky Mount last month. He was 
selected on the sixth ballot, winning over 
a number of aspirants. 

Col. Rodman has a notable military 
record, dating from the time he attended 
the United States Military Academy fol- 
lowing graduating from the University. 
From 1897 to 1917 he was a member of 
the North Carolina National Guard, be- 
ing placed on the retired list in January, 

1917, with the rank of 'brigadier-general. 
He organized Battery "B" of the First 
North Carolina Field Artillery in June, 
1917, which unit became part of the 113th 
Field Artillerv. He served as captain 
from June, 1917, to March, 1919. He 
was overseas a year and was in the fight- 
ing at St. Mihiel and in the Argonne. 

He is a former member of the House 
of Representatives of the State Legis- 
lature and is chairman of the board of 
school trustees in Washington. 

This Is a Small World 

A. E. McNamara, '17, who is with the 
Munson Steamship Line, at Caibarien, 
Cuba, writes : 

"To Illustrate just how small this old 
world really is permit me to jot down 
here a little matter which occurred about 
three years ago in an interior city of the 
Island of Cuba. The writer, one day 
shortly after having taken a position 
with an electric light plant, was hum- 
ming the Carolina hymn when a young 
Cuban looked up from his desk and 
as! ed when I had heard that song, and 
just where. 

"It turned out that he was a University 
man. Imagine the pleasant hours we had 
together discussing the campus, Old East, 
Old West and the town of Chapel Hill. 
The young man's name was Martinez for 
Mendez) I believe and he graduated 
about 1908 or 1909 as an electrical engi- 
neer. He has a splendid position with 

the Camaguey Electric Company, Cam- 
aguey, Cuba." 

Blackmer in New Role 

Sidney A. Blackmer, law '15, will play 
the leading role in Sabbatini's "Scara- 
mouche" in New York City this season. 
Mr. Blackmer recently jreturned from 
London, where he and the author col- 
laborated in the dramatization of the 
play. The opening will be this month in 
the Morosco Theatre. The great success 
which Blackmer won in "The Mountain 
Man" and "The Love Child" will prob- 
ably inspire him to great effort in the 

If Collections Are Better — 

Allen H. Moore, Med. 15, writes: 
"Am living in New Market, Va., in the 
heart of the famous Shenandoah Valley. 
Were it not for The Review I would 
be absolutely isolated from Chapel Hill 
and my old associates. I am thoroughly 
in accord with the idea of more items 
from the alumni to The Review.

Daniels Weddings 

Jonathan Daniels, A.B. '21, M.A. '22. 
and Worth Bagley Daniels, '20, sons of 
Josephns Daniels, former Secretary of 
the Navy, were married last month. 

Worth Daniels was married to Miss 
Josephine Poe January, daughter of Mr. 
and Mrs. Harry Churchill January, of 
St. Louis. The ceremony was in Balti- 
more on September 3rd and was at- 
tended by many prominent persons, 
among them Admiral Edward W. Eberle 
and Rear Admiral W. C. Braisted, re- 
tired. The groom's parents were pres- 
ent. Frank Daniels, brother of the 
bridegroom, was best man. 

The wedding was the culmination of 
a romance begun at the Johns Hopkins 
Medical School where they were class- 
mates. Both have resumed their studies 
in Johns Hopkins and will graduate next 

Jonathan Daniels and Miss Elizabeth 
Bridgers, daughter of Mrs. Annie Cain 
Bridgers, of Raleigh, were married in 
the Edenton Street Methodist Church in 
Raleigh on January 5th, the Rev. W. W. 
Peele officiating. The bridegroom was 
attended by his brother, Josephus Dan- 
iels, Jr., as best man. 

The groomsmen were Frank Daniels, 
George Daniels, Ben Dixon McNeill. 
Sterling Manning, Samuel S. Jackson 
and Clem Strudwick. 

Jonathan Daniels studied law in Col- 

umbia University last year and attended 
the University Law School this past sum- 
mer. He passed the State bar examina- 
tion in August. 

San Francisco Alumni Plan 'Possum 

Hilary H. Crawford, '17, lawyer, sends 
the following interesting items concern- 
ing Carolina alumni in San Francisco: 

William P. Hubbard. '93, attorney, 
Mills Building, is evidently doing well, 
for he bought a $30,000 house in Sea- 
cliff some time ago. 

R. F. McRae, '12, son of the former 
postmaster at Chapel Hill, who served 
with the Engineers of the 35th Division 
in France, is in the real estate business, 
Room 512, 830 Market street. He is 

Frank Clarvoe, '19, is with the United 
Press, 340 Ninth street. He served in 
the Flying Corps, U. S. Army, and was 
commissioned second lieutenant. 

Hilary H. Crawford, '17, attorney at 
law, eats three meals a day and has a 
roof over his head but has not yet pur- 
chased any $30,000 home. 

I hear that R. E. Parker has been 
transferred to U. N. C. 

On "Billy" Hubbard's suggestion we 
are planning a 'possum and sweet 'tatoes 
feed for the fall. We are hoping to see 
a great many Carolina men at the na- 
tional convention of the American Legion 
here October 15-20. Thev will find a 

warm welcome at San Francisco Post 
No. 1 of which I have the honor to be 
commander. It is a post of 800 members 
and has its club rooms at 1159 Market 

Back From Mexico 

Back from Mexico are Josiali Babb, 
'20; Horace Butt, '20; H. S. Boyce, '21; 
B. E. Lohr, '21; Worth Fowler, '21; 
J. B. Miller, '21. 

Babb had been with the Mexico Petrol- 
eum Company since graduation, most of 
the time in Puerto, .Mexico. State of 
Vera Cruz. On a visit to the Hill in 
September he told something of his ex- 
periences. One gets the idea that he 
must have been a bit isolated at times. 
He said he went for a whole year with- 
out seeing a single white woman and 
but one automobile. He and his com- 
panions spent most of their time in camps 
and bandit raids were frequent. 

"Waking up every night to find a rifle 
thrust in our faces was so frequent that 
it got to be a sort of habit. If we had 
any money the bandits got it unless ex- 
traordinary precautions had been taken 
in hiding it. One time some of our own 
guards turned traitors and robbed us of 

Babb is now with the State Highway 
Commission with Raleigh as headquart- 
ers. He expects to stay "in this man'- 
country for a while." 

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 rarelv appealing memoir of him has been brought out by Putnam's 
under the title of "One Who Gave His Life". It tells of Mills' boyhood, his 
college days in Chapel Hill, his struggles in New York, and finally his experiences 
in the Army. The volume contains letters that give an unusually vivid picture 
of the 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 series of pictures of the personal side of the American soldier's life at the 
front. "—The Times, London, England.
