VOLUME XII, No. 3 r*Os~ NOVEMBER, 1923
The University of North Carolina
Everett University Day Speaker
OIXTY-FIVE HUNDRED boys and girls graduated from our high
O schools this year against 1500 four years ago. The graduates this
year exceed the total enrollment in the high schools four years ago.
There are more children enrolled in our high schools this year than had
ever looked in on high school and college ten years ago.
Now what of the future? I need cite only two instances to show
that our institutions of higher learning must be kept open to every
North Carolina youth who has the capacity to digest what he gets there.
Mr. Baker, Secretary of War under President Wilson, sums it up in a
sentence: The chief end of democracy is education, and the chief end of
education is democracy. Limit the numbers here, and the fine spirit of
democracy which pervades this campus gives way to class education
which will not b3 tolerated in a free State.
To state the other point, proves the proposition. We are spending
this year on those whose minds are gone and on those who have never
had any minds $1 250,000, and are spending just a little more on the
development of those who must take the lead in the next generation.
We are informed by our experts that diseases of the mind increase at a
more rapid rate than the general population. What statesman, of the
future; what good business man, would dare to destroy the equation? —

Facts About the Graduate School
105 Graduate Students in 1919-1920.
274 last year.
In the first (summer) quarter of 1923-1924, 255.
In 1919, ten higher degrees were conferred; in June, 1923, there were 42.
Extent of Influence
Last year thirteen states were represented, and students held degrees from fifty-
two colleges and universities. Practically every Class A college in the South is
represented, together with many in other sections of the country. The Graduate
School is not limited in its influence or its membership to the State of North
The University is a member of the Association of American Universities, a small
group of institutions, including the great private foundations like Harvard, Yale
and Columbia, and the great state universities like Wisconsin and Illinois. Mem-
bership in this association is limited to institutions whose graduate schools are of
high rank. Credits for graduate work done here and our higher degrees are
accepted at face value and without examination by the great European universities.
Last year sixty-two professors offered 233 advanced courses of instruction, of
which 163 were open to graduates only. The Library is now probably the best in
the South; is growing at the rate of over ten thousand volumes a year; receives
over a thousand periodicals annually ; and is spending more money annually for
books than many of the older universities. The University publishes eight journals
of research, besides separate books and monographs. All important fields are
represented by professors of wide reputation for their contributions to learning.

Throughout the length and breadth of the State and
Nation University Day was fittingly celebrated. Here
on the campus Memorial Hall was the scene of a meet-
ing that is always impressive. Secretary of State,
W. N. Everett, '86, principal speaker of the ceremonial,
called upon University men to love their State as well
as Alma Mater ; messages from alumni the world over
poured in ; and while Dean Royster read the list of
the alumni dead for the year and the quartet sang
"Integer Vitae," the University stood at attention, the
most impressive moment of the University year.
Nine Men Visit Davie's Tomb
"He once was the head of the Masonic Lodge of
our State, but his grave bears no masonic emblem. He
was once Governor of North Carolina, but his epitaph
mentions only his faithfulness in public office. He was
chief founder of a certain University, but the writer
of his epitaph mentions only his devotion to education."
The above sentences are taken from a letter from
C. L. Cates, secretary of the Anson Alumni Associa-
tion, describing the visit on University Day of nine
alumni to the grave of Gen. William Richardson Davie,
founder of the University, at the Old Waxhaw Pres-
byterian church just over the South Carolina line.
In the twelve years of The Review's existence no
more interesting letter has been received. Not to read
it is to miss the high light in this issue, and not to act
on the suggestion outlined in it is to miss the rarest
sort of privilege.
Out-of-State Alumni Plan Big Reunion in June
Two alumni undertakings which should meet with
the hearty approval and support of all alumni were
gotten underway on University Day by the local alumni
associations of Spartanburg, S. C, and Washington,
Telegrams were sent by R. P. Pell, president of the
Spartanburg association, to all out-of-State associa-
tions, calling for a real home-coming of out-of-State
alumni in June 1924. In due course, invitations will
be sent to the 3,000 or more alumni living outside of
North Carolina to be present and a special celebration
featuring the presence of the out-of-Staters will be
The Campus Beautiful
Through the activity of Dr. Wade H. Atkinson, and
his associates at Washington, D. C, The Campus
Beautiful movement suggested by Dr. Atkinson at com-
mencement two years ago has been successfully
launched, and on University Day a descriptive folder,
setting forth the plans of the committee, was sent to
the entire list of alumni.
The fundamental purpose of the committee, as
explained by Dr. -Atkinson, is to make this campus the
most beautiful in the South and to do it through the
development of walks and driveways and the proper
attention to grass, trees, and flowers.
With contributions of $1000 each from Dr. Atkin-
son, Dr. W. C. Coker, Dr. James Sprunt, and Mr.
John Sprunt Hill, the committee has laid out its plan
of operation and has called upon all alumni to assist it.
A Fact Is a Fact
To the several score of alumni who, on the Twelfth,
were elected to leadership in local associations through-
out the State and country, The Review has two words
The first of these is sensed in the following excerpts
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
from a letter from Mangum Weeks, '16, secretary of
the Washington, D. C, association, who seems to feel
that he has been disillusioned as to the way in which
alumni respond to calls for cooperation in the work of
Alma Mater. It is, frankly, that the responses to calls
for participation in alumni meetings and undertakings
will not be 100 per cent satisfactory. They may, as in
this instance, not be more than 10 or 15 per cent so.
Of the ninety-odd alumni resident in the city, eleven, includ-
ing the president and secretary, were present — a singular
instance of the filial devotion generally displayed by Chapel
Hill graduates toward their Cherishing Mother. About ten
other alumni were heard from, seven of whom had accepted
but found it necessary to cancel their reservations at the last
minute. The remaining seventy, with a week within which to
answer the announcement card, made no response of any kind.
I have given these facts in detail because I am interested
enough to want to know whether this is a typical instance of
University response or not. With us, I am afraid it is, for
the same thing happened last October, with the usual result
of the officers having to make up the deficit in cost of room
and of unused food. If this is a typical instance, then it's high
time something were done about it.
Look at the Other Side
But this is a side of the picture that must be recog-
nized, but not allowed to exercise too profound an
influence upon the officers of local associations and
members of special committees. For, in spite of the
facts indicated, there is another side, and it is to it
that our second word refers.
Officers of local associations may confidently expect
to meet with obstacles to the most effective alumni
activity, but, as in the case of the Washington asso-
ciation, the effort is decidedly worth the making. The
meeting would unquestionably have gone with a bang
if all the 90 members had been present ; but even
though they were not, Dr. Atkinson and his Washing-
ton associates who were present put The Campus
Beautiful Program definitely to work and five years
from now not only the student body but every visitor
to the campus will consciously or unconsciously pay
them tribute for what they have successfully begun.
Alumni achievement, like all other achievement that
amounts to much, comes as a result of the sacrifice and
special effort of a comparatively few, but, in the final
analysis, it is worth what it costs. A big home-coming
of out-of-State alumni in June, the most beautiful cam-
pus in the South, a Graham Memorial building that
will serve thousands of students in learning how to be
citizens of the campus — all will tax the energies of
some individual alumni — but the result will far out-
weigh the cost.
The University Suffers Loss
Twice within the first two weeks of October the Uni-
versity experienced a profound sense of loss incident
to the death of two of its most distinguished and best
loved sons, Lucius Polk McGehee, '87, Dean of the
Law School, and Dorman Steele Thompson, '01, State
Senator and member of the Board of Trustees.
Members of the University faculty and alumni of
the Law School since 1904 have intimate knowledge of
the ripe scholarship, the wise judgment, the quiet mod-
esty, the genuine friendliness, and charming person-
ality of Dean McGehee as well as of his ability as a
lucid and inspiring teacher of the law. For twenty
years he had devoted unspairingly all of his fine abili-
ties to the upbuilding of a constantly enlarging Law
School, and, though he was not permitted to see the
completed work of his hands, a new law building,
adequate to the needs of the University for another
generation, is now in use as an evidence of the effective-
ness and permanance of his work.
Dorman Steele Thompson was less well known upon
the campus, but his labors for Alma Mater began dur-
ing his student days and have increased with the years
of his public life. Both men exemplified the Univer-
sity's highest ideals, and their passing is attended with
profound grief by the many who were fortunate to
count them friends.
Research in Progress
Research in Progress, as alumni may or may not
know, is a publication in the Record series issued
annually in July by the Graduate School and summar-
izes all the special investigations carried on during the
year by graduate students and members of the faculty.
Always interesting for the light which it throws on
the more scholarly aspects of the University's work,
the number for 1922-23 is especially notable in that it
records a total of 200 odd investigations during the year,
as well as the effective founding of the University of
North Carolina Press and the publication of a number
of volumes by it. A further fact made clear by this
issue which is of particular interest is, that whereas
investigations frequently bear but little relation to
present day affairs, a score or more of those made dur-
ing the year treat of situations in State and Southern
life today. In this respect, the University, through its
students and faculty alike, is bringing expert infor-
mation to bear upon questions of great immediate
importance, and in that way is serving its day and
generation to an extent that it has never done before.
To the alumnus who would know something of the
more serious aspects of the University's work the pub-
lication will prove most illuminating. Copies may be
secured upon' request to the Dean of the Graduate
Studies in Philology
With this issue Studies in Philology, founded by the
Philological Club of the University and now published
by the University of North Carolina Press, completed
its twentieth volume.
To have maintained a journal in the South for
twenty years is, in itself, something of an achievement.
But to publish a scholarly journal in the field of the
languages and literatures which now finds its way into
the leading libraries of the world, and to see its table of
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
contents increasingly rilled with the names of leading
scholars everywhere, is an achievement of which the
University cannot be too proud.
The Review finds it in order to remind the alumni
of this achievement, and to make the observation,
recently verified by a careful checking up of the output
of a number of University Presses, that in the publi-
cation of Studies in Philology, The Journal of the
Elisha Mitchell Scientific Society, The Journal of
Social Forces. The High School Journal and The
Sprunt Historical Publications, the University holds a
most enviable position. Its list compares favorably
with those of the foremost institutions, and in that fact
it is to be congratulated.
The University's Reach
Evidence of the extending reach of the University
has been strikingly given since the beginning of the
present term by the opening of extension classes con-
ducted by regular members of the faculty in the fol-
lowing towns: Raleigh, Greensboro, Durham, High
Point, Statesville, Salisbury, Burlington, Sanford,
Oxford, and Lexington. In every instance a minimum
registration of fifteen members per class is required
and in a number of towns not only are the classes large,
but there are classes in several subjects.
Commenting upon this and related phases of tbe
University's activity, the Durham Herald speaks as
Hundreds of men and women in all walks of life throughout
the State are today using the services of the University for
better fitting themselves for their chosen work. A whole book
could be written telling of the service the University is render-
ing the people of the State outside of its regular academic
Those things, as we see it, make the University something
more than an educational institution where boys and girls may
earn a B.A., M.A., or some other of the customary degrees
conferred by universities and colleges. If it didn't confer a
single degree, but carried on the great work it is now doing out
in the State it would more than justify its existence and cost
to the people.
A Fitting Memorial
Announcement was made by President Chase on
University Day that the local chapter of the American
Red Cross had presented to the University Infirmary a
silver service as a memorial to Bessie Roper who died
in 1918 during the influenza epidemic while nursing
Although Miss Roper was in no way connected with
the University and at the beginning of the epidemic
was engaged in private nursing, when the call came to
help relieve the fearful situation at the Infirmary, she
volunteered and contracted the disease from which she
In the annals of the University no service has been
more simply rendered, and no name has more fittingly
been marked for signal honor.
The Yale Game
< )n another page appear letters from alumni in which
approval and condemnation are meted out to the ath-
letic authorities of the University for sending in large
measure second team men to meet Yale in New Haven
on the 6th of October. A statement also appears made
by the athletic authorities setting forth the reasons
which led to their decision to follow the course
For information as to just what was done, and what
the reasons for the action were. The Review refers
its readers to the statement and letters themselves.
Here, it wishes to record the happiness it has felt in
the impression which Carolina made upon the South
during the past two years through the conduct of her
basketball teams in Atlanta, and in the praise given the
Varsity by the Northern press for its splendid per-
formance against Yale in 1922. Similarly, it wishes to
record its regret that, once the game had been sched-
uled with Yale, all first team men capable of playing
were not in the thick of the fight in the Yale Bowl
where 20,000 visitors expected to witness Carolina in
full action, even though "the Yale game is scheduled
as a practice game for Yale and a tryout game for
Carolina" in which "both coaches use as many as
twenty-two men or two teams."
To win the Trinity and State games was important,
but not enough so in The Review's opinion to com-
pensate for the loss in reputation which the University
suffered. Never again does The Review want to see
sentences like these appearing (as they did in the issue
of October 12) in the Yale Alumni Weekly's account
of the game: "Nothing could be told of the real
strength of the team (Yale's) from Saturday's game.
This week's contest, however, bringing the University
of Georgia to the Bowl, should be different. The
Georgia outfit is highly spoken of this fall, and a hard
contest is expected from them."
The Student Council at Work
That the Student Council of 1923-24 knows its duty
and is determined to do it has been demonstrated on
two occasions during the first month of the new year.
At the beginning of the term it discovered that hazing
was again showing its hateful head, and, without any
hesitation, suspended five students guilty of the offense
until the beginning of the winter quarter. The names
of the offenders were given to the State press, and
hazing came to a speedy end.
The second incident grew out of the Trinity game.
An alumnus back on the Hill with too much John Bar-
leycorn, was discovered in the act of celebrating. The
town authorities were promptly notified, the offender
spent the night in the guard house, and the next morn-
ing was fined ten dollars and costs, and sent back home.

The University's 130th Birthday
was widely celebrated ! It was well
Through the masterful address of
W. N. Everett, '86, to the Univer-
sity community in Memorial Hall ;
through the little group of Anson
County alumni assembled at the
tomb of the University's Founder ;
through the Washington, D. C.
alumni carrying in their own teeth
the program to add elegance to the
surroundings in which University
men live; through the little band of
Spartanburg alumni, realizing that
the University of North Carolina
is wider than the state which gave
it life and has nurtured it, now try-
ing to bring back into Alma Mater's
physical presence those of her sons
who have gone on to other states
and countries ; through the bands of
alumni assembled in Jacksonville,
Atlanta, Birmingham, San Fran-
cisco, Norfolk and Boston ; and
through the 35 groups assembled
throughout North Carolina —
through them all ran the conscious-
ness that the alumni were not only
celebrating the 130th birthday of
that venerable mother, but that they
were melting themselves into a re-
lationship of more definite useful-
ness to the University and to the
society which it serves than they
have known in the past.
Forty Groups Meet
In every report which has been
received so far there is not only evi-
dent the fact that the occasion has
been celebrated, but that those cele-
brations have been surcharged with
the definite note of the bigger
things which the alumni are think-
ing for the institution in the future.
"We have something that remains
constant," wrote one Secretary.
"And University alumni are coming
to realize that the constant thing
about Carolina which we love is its
passion for public service. Tben
we cannot demand that the old well,
or Old South, or the walks remain
just as they were when each of us
first saw Chapel Hill. We should
like for them to remain the same,
but if they are torn up and old
familiar haunts destroyed, we can
still anchor to that bigger thing
which remains — the continued con-
VIEWED BY PERIODS
President Chase announced at
the University Day celebration at
Chapel Hill on October 12 that
registration had reached 2, 124 and
was expected to go beyond 2,200
for the year. Salient facts regard-
ing the University's tremendous
growth in recent years were empha-
sized by University Day speakers.
One speaker put it this way :
"Today the memories of alumni
scattered to the four corners of
the earth are winging their way
back to Chapel Hill, to the Uni-
versity that some knew in 1890
with a student body of 200 and a
faculty of 19, to an institution that
others knew in 1910 with a student
body of 821 and a faculty of 78
and to a student body that still
others knew in 1915 with a student
body of 1,011 and a faculty of 89.
Today the University has more
than 2,100 students and 155 faculty

versity that it rose as an investment
of society for its future leadership
and guidance, and that its every
item of growth is in response to

Commenting on the statement
the Greensboro Daily Nczvs said
editorially : "The prediction may
seem fantastic to many North
Carolinians, but it is really noth-
ing of the sort. There are now
about 10.000 college students in all
the institutions of higher learning
in the state; but if and when
North Carolina comes up to the
American average by keeping ap-
proximately two per cent of her
school population in college, she
will be compelled to take in just
about double that number. The
school population of the state to-
day is 900,000; if two per cent,
were in college we should have
18,000 college students today. By
1933 the school population will
certainly have risen to a million,
which would give us just 20 000

The University alumni met here on
the evening of the 8th with Secretary
Daniel L. Grant as guest. After the Uni-
versity of the present and the alumni
work had been presented the attention
of the meeting centered upon the pro-
posal of Dr. Pell that there be arranged
for the June, 1924 Commencement a spe-
cial reunion program especially for those
alumni who reside outside the state.
Ways and means of carrying this through
and a possible program for their group
when assembled were considered. As a
Special Committee to foster this project.
President Murphy has appointed R. P.
Pell, '81, Chairman, John W. Alexander,
'88, and E. S. Lindsay, '19.
Already many of the out-of-state asso-
ciations have pledged their support and
soon a complete organization for carry-
ing this out will be completed.

Alumni Association held its first real
get-together by celebrating the passing
of the 130th anniversay of laying the
cornerstone of Old East. S. S. Heidc is
President, and T. R. Eagles is Secretary.
The principal consideration of the
Washington alumni at this October 12th
celebration was their own project to raise
funds to beautify the University's sur-
roundings. Dr. Wade H. Atkinson is
Chairman of this Committee and it is
largely through his unflagging enthusiasm
that this project has advanced so far.
The meeting was held at Sunset Inn,
1407 Massachusetts Avenue, N. W.
The Association endorsed the proposal
of Dr. Pell that there be a special re-
union program next June for those
alumni who live outside the state.
Those to make talks at the meeting
were Frank P. Graham, Judge Elder

Always on Carolina's birthday we are
reminded that she has fought to emanci-

the things that lie nearest to men's
hearts. It is because of this that we
have loved her and will continue to love
her. The New York alumni newly
organized hope that they may prove of
service to their University whose sim-
plicity is her greatness and whose great-
ness lies in her service. Anything that
we can do to keep the old lights burning

Urging Erection of Monument or Interment in Chapel Hill
C. L. Cates, superintendent of
the Wadesboro Public Schools,
sends the Review the following ac-
count of the visit of the Anson
County Alumni to the tomb of Gen-
eral Davie :
To the enclosed invitation nine
men responded and motored sixty
odd miles to Old Waxhaw Church
over in South Carolina to visit the
last resting place of William Rich-
ardson Davie, the Founder of our
University. . . We arrived at
the little Presbyterian church in the
woods about one o'clock and found
ourselves with plenty of lunch but
no drinking water and no house in
sight. Doc McKinnon and I drove
about half a mile beyond the church
and procured bucket and dipper
from an old negro mammy, appar-
ently the only inhabitant of that
part of South Carolina. Imagine
our surprise when we returned and
found that the boys had spread the
lunch out on the steps of the church
and were busily helping themselves.
"We are waiting for you." "We
see you are." The lunch was worth
Immediately after the lunch we
went directly to the little cemetery,
which was surrounded on three sides
by a stone wall in sad need of re-
pair. Davie's grave is covered by
a marble slab in horizontal position
and supported on six legs, like a
rectangular table. The bottom or
feet of these legs rest on another
marble slab which covers the grave.
Immediately at the foot of the grave
rises a handsome stone wall sur-
rounding some family plot but not
the plot of the Davie family. Hi.
two sons are buried by his side on
the right, but the appearance of the
spot is such that one unacquainted
with it would search through the
little cemetery a long time before
locating the Davie family.
One man remarked, "Davie, we
are here." We read his epitaph,
which was inscribed on the table-
like surface of the simple marble
slab. He once was the head of the
Masonic Lodge of our state, but his
grave bears no Masonic emblem.
He was once Governor of North
Carolina, but his epitaph mentions
only his faithfulness in public office.

The party was joined here by
Rev. Mr. Hillhouse, the pastor of
the Old Waxhaw Church, who said
that the church was composed of
about sixty members. The pastor
welcomed us to this historic spot
and then led the party in prayer, out
under those historic old oaks.
Afterwards a brief business session
was held, officers elected, or rather
re-elected, and a resolution was
passed calling on the General
Alumni Association to provide a
suitable monument for the tomb of
Davie. The writer makes bold to
suggest that if this be not done that
Davie's remains be removed to the
University Campus and properly
interred there. Such removal would
not be impossible to execute if the
consent of the South Carolina
authorities could be secured. Of
course there is a sense in which a
man like Davie belongs to the en-
lire nation and so is properly in-
terred at any place in the nation.

No attempt has been made to

The suggestion is President
Pell's. The effort to carry it into
full effect began in a meeting of
the Spartanburg alumni on the even-
ing of October 8th when they met
at a dinner in the Converse College
dining room as the guests of Dr.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ATHLETIC AUTHORITIES EXPLAIN YALE GAME
Throw New Light on Situation — Say Squad Was Very Much Crippled and Best Defensive
Team Was Sent to New Haven No Reversal of Policy
The Review has received the following
statement regarding the Yale game,
under the signature of the University
Up to the present the University
athletic authorities have not felt
called upon to discuss the Yale
game. We had, and still have,
reason to feel that the alumni and
others criticising our action were
laboring under a misunderstanding
that would automatically clear up.
Several newspaper editorials and
letters from alumni, however, indi-
cate that our position has not been
The Carolina squad that was sent
to Yale was not a scrub eleven, but
the best defensive team that could
be put in the field at that time. The
squad was very much crippled :
Merritt had been ruled ineligible.
Sparrow had sustained a broken
leg, Matthews, Fordham, and Ran-
dolph were not in condition to play
in the game.
Squad Badly Crippled
At the date of the Yale game
there had been no division of the
squad or even a selection of first
string men. In the face of the
heavy Southern schedule following
the game, it was not deemed wise
to risk the possible injury of Mc-
Donald and Morris.
It is a well known fact to those
who have been following Carolina's
athletic policy that the Yale game
is scheduled as a practice game for
Yale and a tryout game for Caro-
lina. Both coaches always use as
many as twenty-two men or two
teams in this game. The main pur-
pose is to get a line on as many men
as possible and give a large number
nf men the chance to work under
fire, preparing them for future
games and enabling the coaches to
choose the best men for the more
No Reversal of Policy
There can be no legitimate criti-
cism of the good sportsmanship of
what was done. The facts are as
stated above. They involve no un-
usual decision, no reversal of the
University's policy in such a game.
The arrangements which were
made meant that the game was
played, as our games always are
played, to the best of the Univer-
sity's ability under existing condi-
tions. The contrary impression,
due altogether to misleading infer-
ences drawn from the facts, is quite
without foundation, and we take
this opportunity to say so to the

Student opinion seems to have
supported the policy of the Univer-
sity's athletic authorities in the
lale game. While no meeting was
held to ascertain what form crystal-
lized sentiment would take, student
thought, as viewed by the Tar Heel,
was that it was a piece of Fetzer
strategy well justified. The editor
of the Tar Heel said in part :
"The state newspaper writers,
many of them Carolina alumni, de-
livered a stiff jolt to the Fetzer
football strategy when the news of
the New Haven massacre reached
these parts. Wonder if they would
have peppered their sauce so liber-
ally if the subs had held Yale to a

Dear Sir :
I notice considerable comment in

sending her second string eleven
In my opinion this was football
strategy pure and simple and in no
way reflects poor sportsmanship <>n

they are known. Under the cir-
cumstances they did the right thing.
HERE IS A PROTEST
Robert C. deRosset, '18, manager
of the credit department of the
Murchison National Bank, Wil-
mington, writes :
Editor. The Alumni Review,
As an alumnus, I feel con-
strained to raise a voice of protest
against the methods used in the
recent game with Yale by those in
charge of the destinies of the Uni-
versity's football team.
I know not the underlying causes
which prompted the authorities to
retain our so-called "first string"

The finest thing about Thurs-
day's football game between the
University and State college elevens
was the magnificant sportsmanship
displayed by both teams and the
student bodies. The two institu-
tions set an example that should,
and no doubt will, be followed by
the other colleges in the state.
There was the keenest sort of ri-
valry displayed, but the players and
the students did not allow that
rivalry to dominate and affect their
good sportsmanship. There prob-
ably were a few isolated cases of
objectionable conduct among just a
few students, but that did not re-
flect the attitude of the student
bodies, and all through the game
there was always heard and seen the
caution against doing anything that
would even appear objectionable. —

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
CAROLINA VARSITY AFTER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
Defeat by Maryland Probably Eliminates Tar Heels in Race for Southern Honors-
Handicapped by Long Injured List and Lack of Reserves
At this writing it appears that
the Carolina varsity has clinched
the state championship. That will
not be finally settled, however, un-
til Davidson comes to Chapel Hill
on November 17. Davidson has
been defeated by Wake Forest and
Carolina won from the Baptists 22
to 0. Hence comparative scores
would seem to assure the Univer-
sity of state honors. But compara-
tive scores, of course, sometimes
Southern and South Atlantic
championship hopes apparently
went glimmering when Carolina
lost to Maryland. Only by a
strange turn of events between now
and the end of the season could
comparative scores be so juggled as
to make Carolina a contender for
the southern championship, for
Maryland is usually considered in
the southern race.
V. M. I. Game In Richmond
The V. M. I. -Carolina game will
be played in Richmond as last year,
when it was a great success. The
date is November 10. Arrange-
ments are being made to accommo-
date a record-breaking crowd. Last
year the attendance was estimated
at more than 10,000. This year it
is expected to be around 15,000.
Decision to play the game in Rich-
mond automatically brought the
Davidson contest to Chapel Hill.
Charlotte and Winston-Salem made
strong bids but student sentiment
The scores of games played
by the Carolina team up to the
time the Review went to

The biggest handicap of the
Carolina team this season has been
the lack of reserve power that en-
abled last year's eleven to win
southern championship honors.
The team was crippled at the open-
ing of the season by the loss of
Jack Merritt, dependable back,
whose failure to pass his studies
made him ineligible, and George
Sparrow, another outstanding back,
who broke his leg in the Wake
Many on Injured List
Another discouraging factor has
been the large number of players
on the injured list since the season
opened. McDonald, Randolph and
Bonner, three first-string backs,
have not been in good playing form

,000 witnessed the' contest.
this fall. Neither has Robinson,
center, and Captain "Casey" Mor-
ris was on crutches for a while. In
the face of such discouragements
it would seem that superior coach-
ing undoubtedly has been a decid-
ing factor in Carolina's success
thus far this season.
The Wake Forest game was
played in Chapel Hill before a
crowd of 5,000 — a record for a
Carolina-Wake Forest game. Be-
cause of the large number of in-
juries sustained the Fetzers didn't
send all the first string men to New
Haven the next week-end to battle
the Yale bull dog. Yale outplayed
the Tar Heels in all departments,
Carolina's poor punting making the
Eli touchdowns easy. The game
was played before a crowd of more
than 15,000, a record for the open-
ing of the season in the Yale Bowl.
The Trinity Game
The Trinity game was played on
Hanes Field in Durham on Univer-
sity Day. It was a half holiday on
the Hill and most of the students
went over. Here there was an-
other record crowd — for this con-
test—of more than 7,000. The
game was marred by heavy penal-
ties on both sides, Carolina losing
85 yards and Trinity 60 via this
route. Carolina made 16 first
downs to Trinity's 2; 156 yards
through the line to Trinity's 18;
181 yards around the ends to Trin-
The annual Fair Week game

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL
The Pan-Hellenic Council is
wrestling with the difficulties of the
new fraternity pledge system. This
is the first time that there has been
any period elapsing between pledg-
ing and initiation. The question
naturally arises. What about a
pledgee that wishes to change his
mind, or what about the pledging
fraternity which discovers its mis-
take? The Pan-Hellenic has de-
cided to ask the University for a
faculty committee to act as arbi-
trator and to require an appeal to
that committee in cases of this sort.
The penalty on the pledgee for dis-
regarding this machinery would be
refusal to let him join any fratern-
ity. The penalty on a fraternity for
refusing to submit to such arbitra-
tion or for initiating a pledgee who
refuses, would be the debarring of
that organization from any initia-
tions for a period of twelve months.
Tables Are Turned
Some of the upper classmen are
quite a bit excited about what they
regard as lack of spirit, as indi-
cated by poor cheering at the games.
I must confess that I can't get ex-
cited about this. Most of my under-
graduate days were spent in that
period of time when we rejoiced to
think that although the score was
against us, we had out-yelled the
other side. I find myself most
strangely willing to enjoy the oppo-
site situation for a season.
The difficulties of the post office
have started a new practice of de-
livering Tar Heels and magazines
by just laying them out where sub-
scribers can help themselves. The
fact that every student is a sub-
scriber makes this possible. Of
course, by the time this article is
printed, we will have dormitory
mail delivery. Thus do the times
With the inauguration of the
Publications Union, the Literary
Societies get rid of one of their
great financial burdens. This pro-
duces two momentous effects, the
lowering of the initiation fee and
the more careful sorting of pros-
pective freshmen for men really in-
terested in society work. Thus
stripped for action, the societies bid
fair to revive their ancient record
for serious work.
It has been a peculiar feature of
our self-government that it applied
to the campus and to the class, hut
not to the dormitory. At most in-
stitutions, the dormitory has been
the first unit so organized. This
year, for the first time, all dormi-
tories have elected officers. All
dormitories have put out tag foot-
ball teams, and every dormitory has
a telephone. When one realizes
that the next group of dormitories
will be in Battle's Park, out beyond
the east gate, and that the next
group after that will probably be
in the woods south of the athletic
field, it is obvious that dormitory
self-government is the next step in
our student government tradition.
This year, as every year, for the
past three or four, the matter of
freshmen "caps" is under discus-
sion. For some reason, this campus
finds it hard to follow in the foot-
steps of many of his sister institu-
tions, and each year the proposition
is turned down.
Boll Weevil's Future!
The Carolina Boll Weevil bids
fair to follow the Carolina Tar
Baby into the discard. Its present
business manager has been refused
registration in the University for
dishonest business practices. In-
corporating his publication, and lo-
cating his legal residence at Chapel
Hill, he continues to publish the
magazine. The University requires
members of the Board to resign on
the grounds that they are associ-
ating themselves with an enterprise
which is harmful to the good name
and interest of the University, and
so we are back again where we
once were. This is not so, because
it is difficult to handle humorous
publications. It happens because it
is so easy to have one and to make
money on it that those students who
first take hold, as representatives
of the student body, try to run
away with the thing and make it a
private business venture, with
money making by fair means in-
fold as their only object.
Telephones In Dorms
The present Debating Council
undertakes a new scheme to arouse
greater interest in inter-collegiate
debate by having freshmen in the
inter-collegiate debates. Such con
tests were held last year with Trin-
ity and Wake Forest and will be
held this year, on a still larger
scale. It is the purpose of this plan
to increase the number of under-
classmen, who are eligible for de-
1 ating, to impress them with the
fact that the inter-collegiate debat-
ing is a genuine "major sport."
It is a curious sensation to call
the South Building on the telephone.
However, the thing works both
ways. The Tar Heel carried an
item this week to this effect: "In
the wee small hours of the night, a
tousled haired, blear-eyed student
rushed frantically to the telephone,
and getting his call through, was
heard to say : 'Professor, I have
got to such and such a point on this
problem and can't get any further.
What is the next step? Yes, sir;
thank you, sir,' and back to his
room he ran to finish the problem."
The Tar Heel surmises that the fac-
ulty members may have to take out
their phones. — F. F. ]',.. '16.
LUCIUS POLK I, T cGEHEE
Lucius Polk McGehee, Dean of
the University's School of Law,
died in the Westbrook Sanitarium
in Richmond, Va., on October 11,
at the age of 55.
He suffered from a nervous
breakdown early last fall, and was
forced to leave Chapel Hill on the
eve of the opening of the new law
school, into the construction and
plans of which he had put his best
time and thought.
The son of Mont ford McGehee
and Sarah Polk Badger, he was
born at "Woodburn," in Person
county, and received his early edu-
cation at Fray and Mason's school
in Raleigh, graduating from the
University in 1887. He taught for
three years and then returned to
the University and completed the
law course. He went to New York
city and became associate editor of
the American and English Ency-
clopedia of Law. His book, "Due
Process of Law," won wide recog-

In 1914 he became professor of
law in the University, and in 1910
was chosen dean. Under his lead-
ership the school grew steadily in
number of students, in the strength
of its faculty, in prestige. Handi-
capped as he always was by an-
tiquated and inadequate quarters,
he looked forward eagerly to the
completion of the new law building.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT
The Review has on two previ-
ous occasions called attention to
"Literature and Life," a four-vol-
ume library of English and Ameri-
can literature, edited by Dr. Edwin
Greenlaw, Kenan Professor of Eng-
lish in the University, and published
by Scott, Foresman and Company,
of Chicago, of which the third vol-
ume has now been issued.
In the preparation of the four
volumes, of which the present vol-
ume is the third, Dr. Greenlaw and
his collaborators have not only
worked out a series of books which
contains all the reading in English
and more required for students in
secondary schools, but the selec-
tions have been presented in such a
way as to give the high school stu-
dent a conception of literature
which will become one of the per-
manent possessions of his life.
Furthermore, the series, when com-
pleted, will not only constitute a
body of material for the use of high
school pupils, but a splendidly se-
lected library of the best in Eng-
lish and American literature suit-
able for the home or for the person
long out of high school or college
whose knowledge of the subject was
fragmentary at best.
The three volumes which have so
far appeared are very attractive in
appearance, have sold well around
the 25,000 mark, and admirably
serve the purposes for which they
were intended. The fourth and
final volume is now in press and
will be issued in the near future.
"Nature in American Literature''
is the title of a book by Norman
Foerster, Professor of English in
the University, which was published
by the Macmillan Company during
the summer. The works of Bryant,
Whittier, Emerson, Thoreau, Low-
ell, Whitman, Lanier, Muir, and
Burroughs are made the basis of a
series of studies the purpose of
which is to show the interest of
these writers in nature and their
knowledge of it, and to trace the
development of this interest and
knowledge which is now the com-
mon possession of all American
writers through American liter-

of raw materials, and awaits only
exploitation, in which the chemist

ate editor of Industrial and Engi-
neering Chemistry, official journal

Resources of the South as seen
by Dr. Killifer include coal and
iron besides scores, even hundreds,
of less well known materials.
Among these, he says, are clays
from which the finest porcelains
can be made, ores of almost every
metal known, copper, zinc, lead,
manganese, chromium, nickel, co-
balt, aluminum, minerals useful in
themselves, mica, graphite, build-

as minerals which can be made use-
ful by simple processes such as

THANKSGIVING IS HOME-
Alumni of the University are be-
ing given an opportunity to secure
the choice seats for the Carolina-

Daniel L. Grant, Alumni Secre-
tary, has sent an application blank

versity alumni opportunity to secure

to would seem to indicate that the
Old Dominion eleven has developed
rapidly since the season opened.
Hence, unless Carolina shows a de-

are that the Thanksgiving game will
be a nip and tuck affair.

and the general interest throughout
the state, some 15,000 or more per-
sons will witness the game this year.

manager of athletics, is working out
plans to take care of the crowd.

Quincy Sharpe Mills, North Carolinian
After rising to high success in ten years, this brilliant young editorial
writer of The Evening Sun, of New York, was killed in an attack on the German
lines in July of 1918.
Now a rarely appealing memoir of him has been brought out by Putnam's
under the title of "One Who Gave His Life". It tells of Mills' 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.

All successful men
use the tcasted process
in their business!
THEY call it Efficiency. But
it amounts to the same thing.
Because, stripped of its purely
technical significance, the Toasted
Process is efficiency by another
name. It represents the last ounce
of effort which, in all the produc-
tions of men, distinguishes the
isolated examples of quality.
Toasting the tobaccos in LUCKY
STRIKE CIGARETTES adds 45
minutes to the cost of production,
but it seals in the flavor.
And we would rather save the
flavor than the time.
