Alumni Review 

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 

Attendance 

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 
Carolina. 

Standing 

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. 

Opportunities offered 

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. 



Inquiries concerning admission, requests for catalogues, and other correspondence

University Day 

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, 
D. C. 

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 
arranged.

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. 



DDD 



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 
to say. 

The first of these is sensed in the following excerpts 



70 



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 
School.

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 



71 



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 
follows : 

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 
instruction. 

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 
University students. 

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 
died. 

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 



ODD 



< )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 
indicated. 

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 ALUMNI REVIEW 



UNIVERSITY DAY IS WIDELY CELEBRATED 



Forty Groups Met and Renewed Pledges of Support to Alma Mater — W. N. Everett, '86, 
Speaks at University — Reunion of Out-of-State Alumni Planned 



The University's 130th Birthday 
was widely celebrated ! It was well 
celebrated ! 

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- 



UNIVERSITY'S GROWTH 
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 
members." 



sciousness on the part of the Uni- 
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 
that obligation." 



Day Widely Celebrated 

As the Review goes to press complete 
reports of all the meetings held — there 
were 40 — have not been received at Sec- 
retary Grant's office. The gatherings in- 
cluded the associations in the following 
counties and towns : Anson, Birming- 
ham, Buncombe, California, Cartaret, 
Craven, Cumberland, Durham. Florida, 
Forsyth, Georgia, Guilford, Harnett. 
Harvard-Tech, High Point. Lumberton, 
McDowell, Mecklenburg, Nash (Rocky 
Mount), New Hanover, Rockingham, 
Rowan, Rutherford, Sampson, Surry, 
Wake, Washington City, Chatham, Gran- 
ville, Lee, Orange, Pee Dee (South Caro- 
lina), Norfolk and Spartanburg. 

McDowell 

"We celebrated the 12th with a well 
attended and enthusiastic banquet." Jas. 
E. Jimeson is President. George B. 
Strickland, Vice-President, and J. Will 
Pless, Jr., Secretary. 

Orange 

The Chapel Hill and Hillsboro asso- 
ciations were consolidated into the Or- 



ange County Association in a meeting in 
Gerrard Hall on the morning of the 12th. 
Professor Collier Cobb presided. Major 
J. W. Graham, Hillsboro, was made 
President, Sam Gattis, and M. C. S. 
Noble, Vice-Presidents, and I. H. Butt, 
Secretary. 

Norfolk 

In the first meeting of Norfolk alumni 
held at the Fairfax Hotel, C. S. Carr 
was elected President, G. R. Berkeley, 
Vice-President, and L. P. Matthews, Sec- 
retary. There are near 100 alumni in 
and around Norfolk. Thirty-five at- 
tended this first banquet. 

Secretary Grant of the Central Office 
attended and addressed the gathering. 
Led by Burton Smith and backed by 
every civic organization in Norfolk, the 
alumni there are making every effort to 
get the Carolina-V. M. I. game plaved 
in that city. 

New Hanover 

"Fellow alumni, your Alma Mater 
wants you to know that she is not am- 
bitious except for other's welfare, not 
desirous of wealth except for the libera- 
tion of the poor, not drunk with progress 
hut stripped for action, not impoverish- 
ing the commonwealth, but using the 
slight fraction of its great income for 
spiritual investment," said Dean Brad- 
shaw to this alumni group assembled at 
the Hotel Wilmington. Dr. J. S. 
Murphy and Harry Solomon were the 
last officers of the Association. Robert 
C. deRosset was elected President ; Leslie 
Hummel, Vice-President and Marsden 
deRosset, Secretary. 

Pee Dee (South Carolina) 

The alumni of this section of South 
Carolina met at Florence. E. D. Sal- 
linger, Florence, is President, and A. L. 
.\l. Wiggins, Hartsville, is Secretary. 

Florida 

H. Plant Osborne continues as Presi-

THE ALUMNI REVIEW

Greensboro 

C. R. Wharton made the principal ad- 
dress before 60 Greensboro alumni as- 
sembled at the Country Club on the even- 
ing of the 12th, and was later elected 
President of the association for the com- 
ing year. He pointed out that "the 
growth in size has increased the cost of 
running the University. The growth in 
its complex in becoming a University 
explains its greatly increased cost — a con- 
sideration too frequently ignored." he 
said. 

Fred Archer was elected Vice-Presi- 
dent, and E. E. Rives was re-elected 
Secretary-Treasurer. 

"The Great Commoner" — Clem G. 
Wright, had six separate addresses to 
enter the record during this gathering.

SEES ENROLLMENT 

10,000 BY 1933 

Angus W. McLean, Law '92, 
banker of Lumberton, former 
director of the war finance cor- 
poration, addressing the Cumber- 
land alumni on University Day, 
predicted the University will have 
in 1933 approximately 10 000 stu- 
dents. 

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 
as the two per cent, collegiate 
population."

Spartanburg (South Carolina) 

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,

ing this out will be completed.

largely through his unflagging enthusiasm 
that this project has advanced so far.

VERSITY DAY 

New York, N. Y., Oct. 11, 1923. 

Always on Carolina's birthday we are

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

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



ALUMNI MAKE PILGRIMAGE TO TOMB OF WILLIAM R. DA VIE 



Anson County Group Assembled at Grave of University's Founder — Pass Resolutions 
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 
the trip. 

Davie's Grave 

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.

Association. 



He was chief founder of a certain 
University, but the writer of his 
epitaph mentions only his devotion 
to education. 

Want a Monument 

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. 



President Pell, '81, of Converse 
College, is the Chairman of the 
Special Committee preparing the 
reunion for June 8-11, 1924, for 
all sons of Carolina who live be- 
yond the boundaries of the state. 
Thirty per cent, or 3,300 alumni, 
live outside North Carolina — most 
of them originally from the state. 
As a group, these have been left out 
of account in the greater part of 
the association's work. 

The other members of the Com- 
mittee appointed by President 
Murphy to serve with Dr. Pell are 
John W. Alexander, '88, and Ed. S. 
Lindsay, '19, both of Spartanburg. 
It is the present plan to send avail- 
able information to all those alumni 
interested in this project and then 
begin the work of arranging an at- 
tractive program for their infor- 
mation. 

No attempt has been made to 
estimate the number who will re- 
turn for such a program, but it is 
easily possible to have here at that 
time the largest number that has yet 
come for a regular commencement. 

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. 
Pell. The meeting was attended by 
Secretary Grant, and the whole 
project has the hearty endorsement 
of the Board of Directors of the 
General Association. 



But since the crowning deed of his 
great and useful life was the act 
of presiding at the birth of our 
University then she can properly 
claim his last remains. Let the 
alumni say what they think of this 
suggestion. But at any rate let us 
provide some sort of a monument 
at Old Waxhaw. Come along you 
Masons and Daughters of the 
American Revolution ! 

The following men made the 
trip: Mr. William L. McKinnon, 
Dr. J. E. Hart, Mr. J. I. Dunlap, 
Mr. Fleetwood, W. Dunlap, Mr. 
Frank L. Dunlap, Mr. C. L. Cates, 
Mr. W. K. Boggan, Mr. John T. 
Bennett, and Dr. WVA. Dunlap.

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 
athletic authorities: 

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 
made clear. 

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 
important games. 

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 
University alumni.

STUDENTS SUPPORT 
FETZERS 

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 
tight score." 



DEFENDS FETZER 
STRATEGY 

Claude W. Rankin, '07, resident 
agent of the Hartford Fire Insur- 
ance Company, Fayetteville, writes : 
Editor, The Alumni Review. 
Dear Sir : 

I notice considerable comment in 
the state papers regarding Carolina 
sending her second string eleven 
against Vale. 

In my opinion this was football 
strategy pure and simple and in no 
way reflects poor sportsmanship <>n 
i he Fetzers. 

The Fetzers have the reputation, 
;un( justly so, of being clean 

laches and good sports wherever 
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, 
Dear Sir: 

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" 
men on the sidelines, and I care 
not. The fact remains that Caro- 
lina made a fool of herself before 
the largest crowd that has ever wit- 
n s-ed her in action, and in the 
presence of the students and alumni 
of a Northern University which 
had come to look upon her as a 
hard-fighting and straight-playing 
opponent, worthy of the name in 
every respect. 



FINE SPORTSMANSHIP 

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 



-Team 



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 
mislead. 

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 


The scores of games played 
by the Carolina team up to the 
time the Review went to 


press were : 




Carolina 


.22 Wake Forest 


Carolina .... 


. Yale 53 


Carolina .... 


.14 Trinity 6 


Carolina .... 


.UN. C.State.. 


Carolina .... 


. Marvland ..14 


Carolina 


13 S. Carolina.. 



demanded that it be played at 
home. 

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 
Forest game. 

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 




Showing c 



: goal in the Trinity game. A crowt 
,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- 
ity's 20. 

The annual Fair Week game 
with N. C. State in Raleigh was 
played before a crowd of 12,500, 
3,000 more than the year before. 
The victory gives Carolina three of 
the five games played since the two 
institutions resumed athletic rela- 
tions. 

Fine Sportsmanship 

A commendable spirit of sports- 
manship was shown by the student 
bodies of two institutions, while 
the members of the two great rival 
elevens, as usual, fought hard but 
with the best of fellowship prevail- 
ing. 

Maryland won from the Tar 
Heels at College Park, Md., on Oc- 
tober 27 for the first time in three 
years. Carolina was outplayed in 
every department except punting 
and forward passing.

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 
move. 

Dormitory Units 

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- 
nition. 

In January, 1903, he was married 
to Miss Julia Leslie Covert, of 
Digby, Novia Scotia. She died the 
following August. 

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- 
ature. 



tension Division of the University 
of North Carolina and the North 
Carolina Commercial Secretaries' 
Association, came from the press 
last month. 

In make-up it is similar to the 
well established University News 
Letter, being printed on one side 
of a sheet about two-thirds the size 
of that of an ordinary newspaper. 
For the present it will be published 
monthly, but its sponsors expect to 
make it a semi-monthly soon, and 
after that a weekly. . 

The board of editors has nine 
members, three from the Commer- 
cial Secretaries' Association and 
six from the University faculty. C. 
W. Roberts. W. T. Ritter and 
Burke Hobgood, secretaries of the 
chambers of commerce in Greens- 
boro, Winston-Salem and Durham 
respectively are members from the 
Commercial Secretaries' Associa- 
tion. W. J. Matherly, managing 
editor, and D. D. Carroll, C. T. 
Murchison, C. D. Snell, Edmund 
Brown and S. H. Hobbs compose 
the editorial board for the Univer- 
sity faculty. 



The South is a great storehouse 
of raw materials, and awaits only 
exploitation, in which the chemist 
is destined to play a leading part, 
to make it one of the richest indus- 
trial sections of the world, says D. 
H. Killifer, '15, New York, associ- 
ate editor of Industrial and Engi- 
neering Chemistry, official journal 
of the American Chemical Society. 

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- 
ing stone granite and so on as well 
as minerals which can be made use- 
ful by simple processes such as 
barytes, phosphate rock, etc. 



THANKSGIVING IS HOME- 
COMING DAY 

Alumni of the University are be- 
ing given an opportunity to secure 
the choice seats for the Carolina- 
Virginia game in Chapel Hill 
Thanksgiving. 

Daniel L. Grant, Alumni Secre- 
tary, has sent an application blank 
for tickets to 1 1 ,000 former stu- 
dents with the following announce- 
ment : 

"We are very glad to give Uni- 
versity alumni opportunity to secure 
the choice seats for the Virginia- 
Carolina game in advance of the 
opening of the regular ticket sale. 

"We should- like to urge that you 
make your application as early as 
possible ; and that you protect us by 
not allowing this alumni application 
card to fall into the hands of any 
other save a University alumnus. 
Any further necessary information 
will be sent you when the tickets 
are mailed on November 15th. 

A Nip and Tuck Affair 

"The University will be most 
happy to have you return on this 
occasion not only to witness the 
game, but to see the University 
plant and its student body today, 
and more alumni than ever assem- 

Virginia's defeat of Trinity 33 
to would seem to indicate that the 
Old Dominion eleven has developed 
rapidly since the season opened. 
Hence, unless Carolina shows a de- 
cided reversal of form, the chances 
are that the Thanksgiving game will 
be a nip and tuck affair. 

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

Charles T. Woollen, graduate 
manager of athletics, is working out 
plans to take care of the crowd. 
Temporary stands will be erected. 

Two years ago some 10,000 per- 
sons came to Chapel Hill, despite 
the fact that the game had been 
called off and the decision to play 
it was not reached until the night 
before. 



The first issue of North Carolina 
Commerce and Industry, published 
under the joint auspices of the 
School of Commerce and the Ex- 



Work on Carolina's newest ath- 
letic field, located southeast of the 
freshman field, got under way last 
month. The new field will be used 
exclusively in connection with the 
mass athletics program. 



Col. Donald Walter Cameron, 
Laird of Lochiel and chief of the 
Clan Cameron of Scotland, and 
Lady Lochiel, accompanied by Gov- 
ernor Morrison visited the Univer- 
sity recently. They were shown 
over the grounds by President 
Chase.

Col. Springs, '82, Rises to Wealth and 
Fame 

In business he has found the romance 
of life. Such may be truly said of Col. 
Leroy Springs, 'S2, citizen of Lancaster, 
S. C, and a national figure in manufac- 
turing, banking and business. 

Col. Springs is a native of Fort Mill, 
S. C. Why he came to Chapel Hill for 
college work his questionnaire does not 
indicate. His father was a University 
of South Carolina graduate, '40. It is 
recorded, however, that his grand-uncle, 
Adam Alexander Springs, entered the 
University of North Carolina in 1797, 
four years after it was founded, and was 
one of its first graduates. That prob- 
ably explains why Springs of '82 came to 
Chapel Hill. 

After leaving the Hill Springs went 
to Charlotte, entered business and found 
it much to his liking. But he didn't tarry 
long there ; he felt the urge to return 
home, and he did. In Lancaster, S. C, 
he began to organize mercantile firms, 
banks and cotton mills, until today his 
influence in the business world is felt 
throughout the country. 

During the first fifteen years he de- 
voted virtually all his energies to mer- 
chandising and banking. He built the 
Lancaster Cotton Mills, now the largest 
textile plant under one roof in the South. 
It covers nine acres and represents an 
investment of more than $5,000,000. 

He is president of seven cotton mills 
in South Carolina. Also he is president 
of the Bank of Lancaster, the Landsford 
Water Power Company, the Lancaster & 
Chester Railway; is vice-president of 
several other companies and director of 
a large number of corporations. He is a

rise to wealth and fame has been 
phenomenal.

member of the National Chamber of 
Commerce, the American Cotton Manu- 
facturers Association, South Carolina 
Bankers Association, New England 
Manufacturers Association, and the New 
York and New Orleans cotton exchanges. 

From 1886 to 1890 he was a member 
of the staff of Governor John P. Rich- 
ardson ; hence the title of colonel. He 
was one of the most ardent and persev- 
ering supporters of the nomination of 
Woodrow Wilson at Baltimore in 1912. 

Recently he gave to the Presbyterian 
College of South Carolina a new gym- 
nasium, which will be one of the most 
handsome and complete in the South. 

.Mrs. Springs is considered one of the 
most prominent club women and welfare 
workers of South Carolina. 

Col. and Mrs. Springs have one son, 
Captain Elliott White Springs, Prince- 
ton, '17, who was recently married to 
Miss Frances Ley of Springfield, Mass. 



Parker and Brooks Law Firms Combine 

E. S. Parker, Jr., law '96, of Graham, 
one of the best known lawyers and citi- 
zens of North Carolina, now president of 
the North Carolina Bar Association, 
moved to Greensboro October IS to be- 
come associated in the practice of law 
with A. L. Brooks and Julian C. Smith 
in a new firm to be known as Brooks, 
Parker and Smith. 

News of the organization of the new 
firm will be of general interest not only 
to citizens of Greensboro but to lawyers 
and business men generally throughout 
the State. It brings together some of 
the best known lawyers in North Caro- 
lina and creates a law firm that will be 
one of the strongest in the South At- 
lantic section. 

At present Messrs. Brooks and Smith 
are retaining their offices in the Dixie 
building where they have been associated 
with Charles A. Hines, law '08, under 
the firm name of Brooks, Hines and 
Smith. Mr. Hines recently withdrew 
from the firm and formed a partnership 
with R. C. Kelly. 

Though not actively engaged in politics 
.Mr. Parker was elected as representative 
from Alamance county in the last gen- 
eral assembly and immediately took a 
leading part in the deliberations of that 
body, especially on legal and financial 
matters. He was elected president of 
the state bar association at the last meet- 
ing at Blowing Rock. 



Doesn't Like "High-Brow" Stuff 

J. S. White, '96, furniture manufac- 
turer of Mebane, writes : "I know you 
have an 'up hill job' and am always glad 
to lend a helping hand. I read The Re- 
view from 'kiver to kiver' except the 
'high-brow' stuff which is read only by 
Billy Noble, Munchie Toy and Archie 
Henderson. 

"Am still making bed-room furniture, 
which is known all over the United 
States as the best in its class. Am keep- 
ing everlastingly at it, trying to make it 
better every day, and we have the cream 
of the trade of the country. We can 
sell everybody but my Alma Mater." 



On Bass Drum Methods 

George M. McKie, '07, associate pro- 
fessor of public speaking in the Univer- 
sity : 

"I have no desire to rock the boat in 
which you are trying to get some ideas 
across to us alumni. Your job is a diffi- 
cult one. In thinking of what you have 
to do, I am reminded of a criticism of 
Roosevelt and the reply that was made to 
it. Some one accused Roosevelt of con- 
tinually "beating the bass drum." "Well," 
the reply was, "it takes a bass drum to 
wake you fellows up." So I have no 
doubt that you have to adopt all sorts of 
devices to wake us up. Even so — and 
this is what I am driving at — I have my 
doubts as to the advertising value of 
representing the average alumnus as an 
illiterate mixture of Josh Billings and 
Ring Lardner." 




WADE II. ATKINSON, '82, 

President of the District of Columbia 
Alumni Association, which inaugurated a 
movement to make the University campus 
"The most beautiful spot in the South."

Reson Stevenson Decorated 

Dr. Reson Stevenson, A.B. '02, A.M. 
'03, now a member of the department of 
chemistry in the College of the City of 
New York, was recently decorated by 
the French government with the Croix 
de Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur. 
This honor was bestowed upon him in 
recognition of his valuable services in 
the French laboratories while with the 
A. E. F., first as captain and then major. 
Dr. Stevenson is a native of Wilmington 
and is a -brother of Mrs. Oscar P. Peck 
of that city. 



News From Milwaukee 

Edmund J. Lilly, 'IS, captain, infantry, 
U S. Army, Room 315 Pereles building, 
.Milwaukee, Wis., sends the following 
notes : 

Wallace Strowd, '09, came in to see 
me a week or two ago. He is with the 
Wisconsin Department of Agriculture 
and lives at 2121 Chadbourne Ave., Madi- 
son, Wisconsin. It was surely good to 
set eyes on a real Carolina Alumnus 
again. He was the first one I'd seen 
since I had dinner about a year ago with 
J. M. ("Duke") Cox, '15," at the Mor- 
rison Hotel, Chicago. 

I'll take that back about his being the 
first one since Cox. I saw Capt. Sam 
Cratch, Quartermaster Corps, U. S. 
Army, about six months ago. He was 
m Milwaukee on an inspection tour with 
several other students from the Q. M. 
Subsistence School in Chicago. Cratch 
was in the Law class of '15. 

I'm anxious to get the next copy of 
The Alumni Review. It's the only way 
I have of keeping in touch with the hap- 
penings on the Hill. 

I'm not planning a trip abroad or any- 
thing like that at present but I've just 
received a month's leave of absence and 
hope to light out for North Carolina 
within the next few days. 



Phillips Heads Greensboro Civitans 

Guy B. Phillips, '13, principal of the 
Greensboro High School, has been 
elected to succeed Dr. J. W. Tankersley 
as president of the Greensboro Civitan 
Club. The Rev. I. Harding Hughes is 
first vice-president. Mr. Phillips has 
been one of the club's most active mem- 
bers for the past two years, serving the 
past year as vice-president. He is keen 
for all public service and is recognized 
as one of Greensboro's foremost leaders 
among the young people. 



Pritchard, '07, Out for Coolidge 

From Asheville comes the following 
newspaper item : 

"George M. Pritchard, former solicitor 
in this district, well-known lawyer, son 
of the late Judge Jeter C. Pritchard, 
and a conspicuous figure in Republican 
circles in the state, has announced his 
candidacy for delegate-at-large to the 
Republican national convention next year 
on a platform that includes support of

Manager of the credit department of the 
Murchison National Bank of Wilmington re- 
cently elected president of the New Hanover 
Alumni Association. 



President Coolidge as the next Repub- 
lican nominee for the presidency. Mr. 
Pritchard pledges himself to vote for 
Coolidge." 



Dr. Mann, Med., *10, Honored 

Dr. I. T. Mann of High Point, elected 
national vice-commander of the Ameri- 
can Legion at Sa Francisco, has been 
an outstanding figure in legion circles 
in North Carolina. 

He is a charter member of the Legion 
in this state and has held several state 
department offices. While service offi- 
cer Dr. Mann devoted a great deal of 
his time to the work and rendered great 
aid to former service men both sick and 
well, in getting matters with the govern- 
ment straightened out. 

Several times he has been mentioned 
for state commander but has never 
pushed his candidacy nor allowed his 
friends to enter the field in his behalf. 



D. B. Bryan, '11, Now Wake Forest Dean 

D. B. Bryan was elected Dean of Wake 
Forest college by its board of trustees at 
their September meeting. 

Since leaving the Hill he has studied 
in New York and Columbia Universities 
from which he received his master's and 
doctor's degrees, respectively. For five 
years he was a member of the faculty of 
Richmond College. In recent years he 
has delivered numerous commencement 
sermons in the high schools of the state, 
many of which he has had occasion to 
inspect for the State Department of Pub- 
lic Instruction. He is now head of the 
department of education in Wake For- 
est as well as Dean. He reports three 
children running around his house, which 
was recently completed.

lay (nee Marion 
Jane Maloney) sends 
the picture along 
with the following 
note: 

"What makes a 
man hate to tell 
anything about him- 
self? Of course, as 
usual, / have to do 
it. MacAulay ( I 
think you all call 
him Jonas, but I 
don't like it) has been with the National 
Cash Register Company for a little over 
a year now and the last week in March 
he started out to be a salesman for them. 
For the past four months he has lead the 
agency in selling points and is expecting 
to win a trip to Bermuda in January. 

"Here's the second reason he has to 
work so hard (the first being his wife- 
like all poor married men) an eighteen 
months old son — George MacAulay Lee 
Costner. What do you think of his size? 
Who said baby needed new shoes? He 
wears No. 7. Takes after both parents 
— . He's not a prize-fighter— just sucks 
his thumb, hence the mit. 

"P.S. MacAulay doesn't know I wrote 
this."

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. 

"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.

FOR SERFICE TO UNIVERSITY STU- 
DENTS, FACULTY AND ALUMNI 






: — 



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.
