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 ALUMNI REVIEW
OPINION AND COMMENT
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.
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,
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
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
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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
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
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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,
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
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.
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 !
NO GOTHAM DEBUT FOR
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
Harold Williamson's play "Peggy,"
in an Inter-Theatre Arts Produc-
tion, under the direction of Miss
Elizabeth Grimball, whose plays

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ENROLMENT DOUBLED IN DECADE
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
" '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

nor in moral anarchy. It believes

NEW OR BRANCH POST-
OFFICE URGENT NEED
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. •
SCHOOL OF EDUCATION
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.
COACHING SCHOOL ENROLLS
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.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
MANY CHANGES ON UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
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-
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.

years to come. About sixty feet to

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.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL
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
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
STUDENTS NOW GET
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

thrill like the ones I had at Univer-
sity Station as I returned for my
sophomore year. The long wait for

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.

ANSON ALUMNI TO MEET AT TOMB OF DAVIE
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
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
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.

COMMENDATION FOR THE
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,

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.

THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT
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.

"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
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

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.

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.
