VOLUME XII, No. 4 /-*^5v-* DECEMBER, 1923
The University of North Carolina
The Basis of Alumni Relations
a LUMNI— THE PRODUCT of the University— should be well
A enough posted on educational matters to sit in council when big
questions of the institution's future are being settled. The Uni-
versity has come to the point that it needs — it must have if it is to
continue to grow in consonance with its illustrious past — the continuous,
intelligent, moral support of every one of its sons.
Remember, we live a life of change. And the University is a grow-
ing institution. There is nothing more substantial for it to grow upon
than the shoulders of its own informed sons. Great as it is today it
will be incomparably greater in a few years if we have an alumni
opinion and interest that is abreast of the time, and if every man who
leaves Chapel Hill takes with him the consciousness that through his
stay there he has become a part of another great agency through which
he can work for the continued growth of our life.
If this sort of consciousness and interest is developed the Alumni
Association will come into its full fniition. In its wake will follow
endowments, buildings, fellowships, scholarships, laboratories, a school
of fine arts, or anything else which the University needs to better serve
our twentieth century life. That I conceive to be our alumni goal.
This is a far cry from present alumni attitude. From a lack of
experience in this sort of work, and the unfortunate experience in which
the term "general alumni association" has been used for mere expedi-
ency, has come an attitude toward the Central Alumni Office which
prevents our alumni relations existing on the basis of their true elegance.
Today we are attempting to impose no standard, to dictate no pro-
gram. We have faith in the training which the University has offered
and is offering — faith in the superior interest of the men which
it has sent out. To allow, that interest to become articulate so as to
command the support of all University alumni is the function of the
Central Office. — Excerpt from an address by Daniel L. Grant, Alumni
Secretary, before the Forsyth Alumni Association this month.

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.

The Law School Deanship
On November third the I'.oard of Trustees tendered
to W. P. Stacy, Associate Justice of the Supreme
Court of North Carolina, the deanship of the Uni-
versity Law School. Several days later, the tender
was declined by Judge Stacy in a letter to Governor
Morrison as Chairman of the Board. Since the
declination by Judge Stacy, the press of the State has
mentioned a number of names for possible consider-
ation and in several communities favorite sons have
been put forward for the position.
The Review is aware that the filling of this highly
important position is not a matter that falls within its
line of duty. However, it believes it is as much inter-
ested in it as anybody, and accordingly it wishes to
say two or three things concerning it.
Of these, the first is that it regrets that Judge Stacy
could not be secured to fill the position.
The second it that it frankly deplores the tendency
shown by the press and local communities to play up
favorite sons for the position. Such a procedure
shows little comprehension of the importance of the
position which is to be filled and surrounds it with an
atmosphere that, to say the least, is far from satis-
factory and foreign to University traditions.
The third thing it wishes to say is, that the position
is an academic one, and as such should be filled in the
same way that other academic positions are filled.
The Review realizes that important public relations
inhere in the position, but the same may be said of
the deanships of the Schools of Commerce or Educa-
tion or Medicine ; consequently it should be filled in
the same way these positions are filled. The Presi-
dent of the University, using such assistance as is
available, should make a careful study of the field,
pick the man he thinks best fitted for the position,
present his name to the Board of Trustees, and
promptly elect him.
Clear Thinking Demanded
The final thing we wish to say is that in this selec-
tion and election the thinking must be of the clearest
The University of North Carolina Law School, at
this juncture, stands at the most critical period in its
history. The policies which it puts into operation
now will determine whether it is to take its full rank
with the other schools of the University and assume
real leadership in the South and Nation, or trail
other institutions in this immediate section. It can
select a head who is thoroughly trained in the law,
who is an effective teacher and administrator, and who
can set up and maintain the best standards of Amer-
ican legal education. It can add to the present faculty
two or three able teachers. It can double its library
facilities immediately. It can raise its standards of
admission to the level required by the Association of
American Law Schools. It can convert its summer
quarter into a strictly straightforward fourth quarter.
It can work for higher standards for admission to
practice at the North Carolina bar — it can do these
very necessary things now, or, it can follow the
lines of least resistance to a position less distinctive
than the one it can and should attain.
Graham Memorial Begun
< Mi Tuesday, November 26, ground was broken on
the- < )ld Inn site fur the new Student Activities Build-
ing, and. after almost five years of waiting, the Gra-
ham .Memorial has been begun.
The entire building, to cost $400,000 when com-
pleted, will not be started at this time. On the
contrary, only the central unit, which is to cost
approximately $250,000 has been authorized.
Now that work has actually begun, it is extremely
important that the work of securing subscriptions be
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
completed at the earliest moment possible, and that all
alumni who have made subscriptions, but who have
not met payments already due, should send in their
checks at once. Already long and sorely needed, the
building should be brought to completion as speedily
as possible and this can only be done provided sub-
scriptions and payments are promptly in hand.
On another page appears a letter from a thoughtful
alumnus in which the fear is expressed that in its
rapid expansion the University may come to place too
much emphasis upon bigness rather than upon quality
That the University has undergone many changes
in the transition from an institution of 600 students to
one of 2200 is unquestionably true, and it may also be
true that certain phases of bigness have been empha-
sized at the expense of other qualities which are more
valuable and which should be retained and preserved
at all cost. But while this is a possibility, The Review
wishes to state that it is its opinion, growing out
of careful observation, that the University is not only
not losing sight of the value of scholarship and thor-
oughgoing training, but on the contrary is constantly
making more stringent the regulations which insure
their growth and permanence.
Time was when a student could enter the University
much more easily than he can today and remain in it
even if he did not work. Time was when he could
have almost an unlimited number of examinations to
pass a subject. Time was when little emphasis was
placed upon collateral readings and special investiga-
tions. Time was when the spirit of investigation and
the opportunity for publication were far less general
than they are today. But the fact remains, in spite of
the bigness of the institution, in spite of the quantity
production methods that have to be employed in cer-
tain phases of the University's life, that the standards
of excellence have not only not been lowered, but on
the contrary, are higher and the attainment of them is
more rigorously insisted on than ever before. The
student who gets through on "all fours" doesn't get
through nearly so easily now as he once did, if he gets
through at all.

The Review again acknowledges its indebtedness
to The Yale Alumni Weekly. We never read its pages
that we do not find in them something which we wish
to pass on to our readers.
In this issue, we borrow both from the editorial
and news pages. From the editorial page we clip the
comment on "Class Publications" — some sixty-five
which Yale Class secretaries have issued in the five
years since the war — and from the news pages a pic-
ture of the "five-foot" shelf to which we direct the
attention of our readers.
If there is any one particular in which Carolina
alumni appear to less advantage than the alumni of
other institutions it is in their seeming unwillingness
to express a thought or record a fact in writing!
But the Yale editorial is more to the point than any
word of ours. Here it is. Read it, and then do your
duty by your class and the Alumni Secretary !
Three-Score Class Records
"A class history is of special interest only to the
members of that class, but to them it is an intimate
possession, a storehouse of information and a magic
carpet back to undergraduate days and the memories
of friends and incidents treasured in after years. Only
a comparatively small group, the class secretaries and
editors of these books, realize the enormous amount of
work which goes into the compilation of such publi-
cations — else classmates would cooperate more will-
ingly than they seem to in transmitting the necessary
information — but every owner of class records, the
recent graduate with his Senior History and his elder
with the Twenty-five or Thirty Year Record, appreci-
ates their value as a means for maintaining interest in
the class and the University.
"In the five years since the war, Yale classes have
published some three-score volumes, ranging from
unpretentious paper-covered directories to complete
records elaborate in detail and beautiful in format.
What cumulative effect this surprisingly large output
of history, statistics, and reminiscence has for loyalty
to the small group of the class and the large unit of
Yale University, as well as methods of preparation
and present trends, is told in an article by Minott A.
Osborn, '07, Secretary of the Alumni Advisory Board,
in an article the first half of which is published this
week. And since he modestly speaks of it only in
passing, we may here mention his own splendid
Decennial Record, which did more than any one other
book to break away from the old blue-bound con-
formity and set a standard of originality followed in
several recent publications. There is infinite labor in
the preparation of a class history, but it is an invalu-
able addition to the life of each class, and the number
which are produced every year bears witness to the
recognition of that fact."
The Gift of a Camera
The Review has always faced most serious limita-
tions in the kind of pictures it could present its readers
on account of the lack of proper photographic facili-
ties. From this time forward, however, it hopes to
improve this phase of its service by reason of the fact
that on Thanksgiving day it was the recipient of a
first class camera with graflex lens. With a member of
the staff now learning the fine art of catching campus
activities "on the wing," our pages in the future should
present a more lively representation of campus events
than ever before.
We are not permitted to speak the name of this
donor whose gifts throughout the years have been con-
stant and altogether worth while, but we do speak our
most genuine thanks.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
FRATERNITIES SHOW GREAT IMPROVEMENT
Under New System Each Chapter Has Greater Number — Dining Room And House Mothers
New Features -Little Friction — Freshmen Now Elegible
Those who remember the old
frat-non-frat campus feuds and are
familiar with trustee legislation
hostile to fraternities in many of
the states of the Union, were
pleasantly surprised by the action
taken by the trustees of the Uni-
versity at last commencement. The
Pan-Hellenic Council had peti-
tioned for a change in eligibility
rules and the faculty, after
thorough investigation, had passed
favorably on this petition and re-
ferred the matter to the Board of
Trustees, since rules in force at
that time were trustee rules. There
was some little doubt as to what
sort of action the Board of Trus-
tees would take. When the matter
was brought up, before the Board
could take any action on the peti-
tion itself, one of its members who
was himself not a fraternity man
and had been in fact, to some ex-
tent, identified with the anti-fra-
ternity feeling, made a motion that
all trustee legislation relating to
fraternities be stricken from the
books and the regulation of such
matters left entirely in the hands
of the University faculty. This
motion was unanimously passed
and forms a unique incident in the
history of trustee- fraternity rela-
tions in State Universities in the
country ; and so the University fra-
ternities entered upon a stage which
is characterized by the absence of
any inelastic, restraint or any hos-
It would seem pertinent at this
time to ask what changes have
brought about this result and what
use will the fraternities make of
their opportunity. Since many <ii
the readers of the Review were
familiar with campus conditions
epoch-making changes have taken
place slowly and quietly in the fra-
ternity situation. A student body
of 2,000 is not as sensitive to the
distinctions of "clique" and organ-
izations as is a student body of 500,
in which all such individual charac-
teristics stand out and demand ex-
planation. With this growth of the
student body has gone a multipli-
cation of the number of fraterni-
ties, until now there are eighteen
national fraternities represented on
the campus. There was a time
when the way of a new fraternity
was made extremely hard. In con-
trast to that the Pan-Hellenic now
encourages the formation of local
fraternities and their installation as
chapters of national organizations.
There are two other changes in
quantity which are even more sig-
nificant. The fraternity of today is
larger than the fraternity of yester-
day. There are now as many as
seven of the eighteen national fra-
ternities with a membership of
twenty or more, and the average
membership is seventeen. Leaving
out of consideration the freshmen,
who are ineligible for membership,
under the old rule, the fraternity
men constitute nearly 25 percent of
the student body, as compared with
17 per cent, of a decade ago. All
of this means, with reasonable con-
clusiveness, that the fraternities are
keeping pace with an expanding
Now Have House Mothers
With the opportunity for phys-
ical expansion demanding new
houses and larger houses, there
seems to go hand in hand a new
policy in regard to the construction
of these houses, and the purposes
for which they are constructed.
There are, at present, completed,
three of the new homes — the S. A.
E., Sigma Chi, and D. K. E. In at
least two of these cases, the build-
ing is large enough to provide liv-
ing quarters for every member of
the chapter, up to thirty. There is
also a dining room, which in one
case is already in use, and in this
latter instance there is a house
mother who has charge of the
house. In other words, the men in
this organization have not merely a
club house, but something ap-
proaching very nearly a home — a
remarkably fine privilege for a col-
li ge student.
I land in hand with this present
trend go some other changes in
policy. Scholarship is emphasized
more than formerly and there is a
I 'an-Hellenic Scholarship cup for
which there is keen competition.
The fraternities as organizations
seek consciously not to withdraw
their members from their share in
the life of the whole campus, but
make a point of pushing their men
out into various student activities
and enterprises, and now with the
newly inaugurated pledge system,
which turns the freshmen over to
this fraternal home, at the conclu-
sion of his first quarter in the Uni-
versity, the fraternity assumes a
definite educational responsibility
and will be judged in terms of what
they do for the individual, so early
commended to their influence.
Take In More Men
These facts and figures regard-
ing the present show an unmistaka-
ble shift of emphasis which, I be-
lieve, indicates the line of future
development. It is pretty generally
agreed that a college which has a
few fraternities and a small pro-
portion of fraternity men, should
have either none at all, or more.
It is evident which of these alter-
natives the University of North
Carolina has chosen, and when I
say the University, I do not mean
just the administration, but I mean
the students as well. Within the
next decade or so there will proba-
bly be an enormous increase in the
number of fraternities on the
campus and a still further growth
in the size of the chapters until they
reach an average of about twenty-
five or thirty. During this period
many fraternity houses will be built
and they will be larger and more
expensive than even those most re-
cently erected. The financial end
of the fraternity will be more im-
portant and more systematized.
Home Idea Uppermost
There have been in general the
country over, three types of college
fraternity. One has been a social
club, with a social club house. In
many cases these houses have had
no bedrooms at all. The purpose
and emphasis of the organization
has been purely social and its mem-
bers have regarded themselves as
an aristocracy of social polish. An-
other type has been a modification
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of the first, with some emphasis on
campus politics and some slight
icL-a that the fraternity should be
a home. The third type, and the
one towards which we seem un-
doubtedly moving, is the one most
commonly found in the west, where
the home idea is uppermost. The
ideal fraternity of this sort is demo-
cratic in that it does not think of
itself as an aristocracy, but merely
as a band of congenial spirits ; in
that it not only looks for good men
already developed, but seeks poten-
tial men and sets itself to their de-
velopment ; in that it recognizes
that fraternity loyalty, as fine and
worthy as it is, must always be
second to University loyalty. Fra-
ternities of this type have demon-
strated their educational value and
the administrative offices regard
them as a definite asset to an edu-
cational institution. I believe that
the fraternity men who are formu-
lating policies on the campus today
are embarked on a helpful enter-
prise, and that it is to the Univer-
sity's best interest for them to ex-
pand with her — F. F. B. '16.

cently completed a new home on

GRADUATE SCHOOL HAS
Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, Dean of
the Graduate School, reports that
this year's registration to date is
329, as compared with a total of
274 last year. The students are
registered in 20 different depart-
ments. They come from 70 differ-
ent colleges and universities.
Of these the University furnished
85 ; Trinity, 25 ; Wake Forest, 20 ;
North Carolina College for
Women, 17. Many came from
leading institutions in other states ;
for example, 11 from Furman Uni-
versity (S. C.) ; 5 from Converse
(S. C.) ; 5 from Randolph-Macon,
(Va.) ; 5 from the University of
Sixteen states and foreign coun-
tries are represented. Thirty-three
of the students hold master's de-
grees from sixteen colleges and
universities. Many more have had
at least one year of graduate train-
ing here or elsewhere. Nine are
working towards a doctorate. From
the state of South Carolina come 44
of the students; from Georgia 8.
Dr. Greenlaw concludes :
"To have on the campus students
who have already had at least four
years of college training in seventy
institutions, situated in sixteen
states, indicates the far-reaching in-
fluence of the graduate school."
Anticipating the increase in stu-
dents this fall, both the University
and village improved their boarding
Swain Hall, operated by the Uni-
versity on a cooperative basis, has
doubled its service by serving meals
longer hours. It seats 700.
The Cates Cafeteria has installed
new equipment and doubled its
service. Last year this place served
on an average 800 meals a day and
it could serve 2,000.
On the first 'floor of the brick
building adjoining the postoffice
Nick Moules has opened a com-
bined cafe-cafeteria, to be known as
the Carolina Cafeteria, with a seat-
ing capacity of 150.
J. E. Gooch has bought out the
White House cafe adjoining his
place and with the two restaurants
will be able to serve 150 or more
patrons at one time. Over Gooches
two places is a large banquet hall
to be rented.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
CAROLINA- VIRGINIA GAME SETS TWO RECORDS
More Than 15,000 See Two Ancient Rivals Battle to Scoreless Tie for First Time
— Rain Fails to Dampen Alumni Enthusiasm
The Carolina-Virginia game in
Chapel Hill Thanksgiving- set at least
two precedents. A record crowd of
some 15,000 persons saw the contest
and the two rivals battled to a score-
less tie for the first time. It was the
28th game that teams representing the
two institutions have played in 31
years of gridiron relations.
From the point of view of weather,
the day was not ideal. A drizzling
rain fell for two hours in the morn-
ing. It let up about noon but set in
again at the beginning of the fourth
quarter and continued at intervals for
the remainder of the afternoon.
It apparently would have taken more
than rain, however, to dampen the en-
thusiasm of those who had planned to
attend. As many visitors as Chapel
Hill could accommodate arrived the
night before, but the large majority
came by automobile Thursday morn-
ing. For hours a steady stream of
cars moved along the twelve mile
stretch of paved road between Dur-
ham and Chapel Hill. Truly, it was
a day that all roads led to the Hill.
It was a home-coming day for the
alumni and they returned in record
numbers. The weather probably pre-
vented them getting about as much as
they would have liked, but it didn't
fjuell their enthusiasm.
The crowd was well handled, order-
ly, good natured. The Carolina Motor
Club had officers on the grounds to
systematize traffic and policemen
drawn from a half dozen towns di-
rected it. Only one minor accident
was reported. One hundred and thirty
members of the freshman class, under
the direction of the University "Y",
served without ;pay as ushers and
guides. The problem of food was easi-
ly solved as the result of fine co-
operation by the hotels, restaurants,
cafeterias and improvised lunch
Both Threaten Once
As for the game, neither team scor-
ed because neither team had the neces-
sary punch. Both Carolina and Vir-
ginia threatened once and that was all.
The remainder of the contest was a
duel of punts in which Virginia had
of games played by

The Virginians had an opportunity
to score a field goal in the fourth
quarter when Benny Arnold dropped
back from the 21 yard yard line to
try a drop kick. A drizzling rain had
set in. Thesmar, Virginia center,
shot the slippery ball over Arnold's
head and the Orange and Black had
lost a chance to win and, incidentally,
15 yards of hard earned ground.
Carolina's threat came just after
the opening of the second quarter.
McDonald caught a punt on the 30-
yard line and returned it five yards.
Bonner circled end for 15 yards and
McDonald took it 18 yards to Vir-
ginia's 32-yard line. A line plunge
and pass failed. Another pass carried
the oval to Virginia's 26-yard line and
then it went over on downs.
The Outstanding Players
Several of the Carolina men played
an outstanding game. McDonald tore
off several good gains through the line
and around ends and displayed good
generalship. Bonner got away with
some spectacular end runs. Mclver
made the prettiest tackle of the game
in the third quarter. He downed
Maphis after the latter had run 20
yards around left end, he being the
only Carolina player between the Vir-
ginia hack and an open field. Captain
Morris, Poindexter and Matthews did
brilliant work in the line and Blanton's
work was good. Benny Arnold, Vir-
ginia's "triple threat," didn't get much
of an opportunity to show his wares.
Sam Maphis and Carter Diffey how-
played spectacular ball through-
out and kept Carolina continually on
edge. Diffey showed great speed in
circling the ends, while Maphis made
several beautiful returns of punts.
In first downs, penalties and for-
ward passes both teams averaged about
the same. Each made eight first
downs. Carolina was penalized 10
yards to Virginia's five. Little was
gained on forward passes. Carolina
lost in the exchange of punts.
Last Game for Four
It was the last football game for
Captain Morris, McDonald, Poindex-
ter and Shepard.
The varsity of 1923 was not the
only center of attraction. There was
a general reunion of former Carolina
players and special reunions of the
teams of 1898 and 1903, the first two
teams to beat Virginia. Twelve mem-
bers of the 1898 squad were back.
They were W. A. Reynolds, coach ;
Frank Rogers, quarterback ; T. Brem,
center; S. Cromartie, guard; P. Phi-
fer, guard ; F. Bennett, tackle ; Samuel
Shull, tackle; Vernon Howell, half-
back; J. McRae, halfback; Edwin
Gregory, end; H. Koehler, end, and
Mclver, guard. Vernon Howell made
the 40 yard run that defeated Vir-
ginia in 1898.
Reunions of '98 and '03
Players of 1903 were: G. L. Jones,
captain ; Roach Stuart, center ; C. A.
Albright, guard; Albert Cox, end; N.
A. Townsend, end; J. E. Mann, half-
back; Jack Donnelly, tackle; Perry
Seagle, guard; W. P. Jacocks, quar-
terback; Dr. Foy Roberson, fullback;
I. C. Wright, end; Dr. W. A. Smith,

TAG FOOTBALL FEATURES
Tag football has become the
most popular game in the Univer-
sity in the point of general partici-
pation. It is like regular football
except the man with the pigskin only
has to be tagged or touched instead
of tackled, and every man on the
team is eligible to receive a for-
ward pass. Each of the eleven
dormitories has a team, and the
fraternity houses are represented.
Tag football is the feature of the
mass atheltics program inaugur-
ated for the first time this year, and
the general participation has en-
couraged the athletic authorities to
believe that the slogan "Every
student in some form of healthful
exercise," is being realized.
Cross Country Runs
Inter-class football matches and
cross-country track meets featured
the fall program. Pushball, basket-
ball and indoor track are on the
program for the winter, and base-
ball, tennis and horseshoe will be
taken up in the spring.
Four hundred students partici-
pated in a two and a half mile cross
country track on November 3rd.
The housewives of Chapel Hill
baked cakes and gave one each to
the first hundred runners to pass
over the sroal line.
The Central Alumni Office has
recently been moved from the first
to the second floor of the Alumni
building. All of this building is
used now for offices save two rooms
which are kept by the Department
NOT FOLLOWING DAD'S
Carolina students are not follow-
ing in the footsteps of their fathers
in choosing their life work.
A study of the matriculation
cards of the 750 members of the
freshman class just completed by
Dean Bradshaw reveals the fact
that ninety-five per cent of the new
men intend to follow an occupation
different from that of their father.
"These hard figures," Dean
Bradshaw points out, "bear striking
testimony to the rapidity with
which North Carolina is changing
from a rural and simple to a com-
plex and industrial life. The great
increase in the number of vocations
is particularly significant. It has
a direct bearing on North Caro-
lina's future. These figures un-
doubtedly apply more or less to
other freshman classes of recent
Dean Bradshaw made this inquiry
for the first time this year in con-
nection with the University's newly
established bureau of vocational
guidance, the purpose of which is
to make available information which
will help students without special
bent to choose a career.
More than half of the freshmen,
the statistics reveal, are wholly de-
pendent on themselves for support,
and are working their way through
college as self-help students. Only
one-fifth of the new men have
never earned any money at all.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
CAROLINA HAD SATISFACTORY FOOTBALL SEASON
State Championship Honors Won — Panned Out Just As Was Predicted — Loss of
Veterans and Shortage of New Material Great Drawbacks
The football season of 1923, from,
both the campus and alumni point of
view, has been all if not more than
could have been expected of a squad
that lost of the services of the bril-
liant Johnston, Morris and McGee of
last year's backfield together with such
dependable backs as Merritt and Spar-
row of this year's team.
The feeling on the Hill is that Caro-
lina has played a consistently good
game throughout, though not particu-
larly spectacular, and that her record
on both offense and defense has been
fine. The campus is well pleased with
It would not be stating the case
precisely to say that Bob and Bill
Fetzer, Carolina coaches, are satisfied,
for they come within the type of men-
tors who believe that satiety begets
overconfidence. On the other hand,
they are proud of the team's record
and are content to accept the verdict
resulting from comparison with other
state and southern elevens.
The University is not offering alibis
for games lost. In fact the season
panned out just about as was predicted.
No one expected Carolina to do much
with Yale and there was little surprise
when the Maryland and V. M. I.
games were shifted to the defeat side
of the ledger.
There are those who think that
Carolina should have beaten Virginia
and who point to comparative scores
as evidence. It should be remember-
ed, however, Carolina used the same
system as last year and therefore got
off to a good start, while Virginia had
a new coach and a new system and was
naturally slower in rounding into
Scarcity of Material
With a scarcity of material to be-
gin the season, the loss of Sparrow
and Merritt at the outset was a stunn-
ing blow to the Tar Heels. Sparrow's
punting was sorely needed, as witness-
ed in the Virginia game, and Mer-
ritt's line plunges were hardly less in
demand. Both Sparrow and Merritt
will be available next year.
Underwood, who replaced Merritt,
did as well as could have been ex-
pected when bis light weight and lack
of varsity experience are considered,
"Shine" Blanton, who took over Un-
lowing is the record
rginia games to
season game in
derwood's berth in the Virginia game,
has played well and will be one of the
most promising backs next year if he
"Rabbitt' Bonner, speedy left half-
back, did the spectacular work and
did it well. He will be back next
year. McDonald comes next to Bon-
ner as a ground gainer, but his chief
asset to the team has been his stipe, b
generalship. With few exceptions his
judgment has been excellent. Seldom
has a man of his weight — 148 pounds
— been such a versatile player.
' i mat" Randolph of Asheville has
lieen Carolina's most dependable back
on defense and has gained consider-
able ground in several games, parti-
cularly in the Trinity contest.
In the line Captain "Casey" Morris
has played the same consistent game
that led critics to pick him for all-
South Atlantic end. With him in the
forward position he had had good
men. There is the veteran Poindex-
ter, who has never been knocked out
of a game ; the hard tackling Matthews
who often breaks through ; the ver-
satile Mclver, equally at home at
tackle or center ; the tenacious Shep-
ard, whose bull-dog determination has
supplemented his 143 pounds of
brawn, and the steady, consistent
Hawfield and Fordham, who have held
their jobs in the face of competition
aplenty. As substitute ends, Lineber-
ger on offense and Epstein on defense
have been outstanding players.
This resume should not be ended
without mention of the bard work of
Manager Charlie Norfleet, of Win-
ston-Salem, whose efforts in behalf
of the squad have been tireless. His
work and loyalty have been of the
Nothing can be said here that would
add to or detract from the great
praises already sung to Coaches Bob
and Bill Fetzer, Trainer Bob Lawson
and Graduate Manager Charlie Wool-
len. Their work has been conspicu-
ous enough all along.
Next your looks good, indeed. The
schedule has not been completed but
it will be virtually the same as this
season's. Morris, McDonald, Poin-
dexter and Shepard will be great
losses, but there is an expected from
this year's freshman squad, with eight
former high school captains, a wealth
of good material. The punting of
i aptain Nims, many of whose boots
go for 70 yards, will be a most valu-
able asset and there are a number of
dependable backs and linesmen.
There will be several changes in
locations of games for next season.
Wake Forest will be the opener, fol-
lowed by Vale, Trinity, N. C. State,
Maryland, S. C, V. M. I., Davidson,
and Virginia. Yale will be played in
New Haven. Trinity, Maryland and
South Carolina will be played in Cha-
pel Hill. State will be played in Ra-
leigh, and Davidson at Davidson. Vir-
ginia will be played in Charlottesville.
Just as yet the locations of the other
games haven't been determined.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
RECORD CROWDS SEE CARO-
Record crowds witnessed the Caro-
lina football team in action this past
season. Figures compiled by Charles
T. Woollen, graduate manager, show
the total attendance for the season at
games in which the Tar Heels played
was 68,692, these being paid admis-
sions. The total official attendance for
the 1922 season was 57,234.
The attendance of 20.000 at the Yale
game heads the 1923 record. Next
comes the Thanksgiving game with a
record of 14,231 paid admissions. The
N. C. State game in Raleigh takes
third place, with an official attendance
of 10,895. The crowd at Richmond
was somewhat below expectations,
coming fourth with 7,971. The Caro-
lina-Trinitv crowd is recorded at
Davidson Game Loss
Moving the Davidson game to
Chapel Hill, in order to give the stu-
dents a reasonable number of home
games, proved to be a losing proposi-
tion, financially. At Charlotte in
1922 5,422 persons paid to see Caro-
lina and Davidson play. This year
at Chapel Hill there were only 2,694
In four years the attendance at
the Carolina-Virginia games has
doubled. Back in 1919, when Captain
Coleman and his team played the
Cavaliers in North Carolina for the
first time, 7,177 people came to Chapel
Hill. Then in 1921. with the game
an uncertainty due to the controversy
over "Red" Johnston, 10,132 attended.
This year saw all records broken, with
more than 14,000 persons who had
paid to get in seated in a drizzling
rain. No rain insurance was col-
lected. It didn't rain the prescribed
one-tenth of an inch before two

UNIVERSITY 'Y' INCREASES
WORK 75 PER CENT.
The University Y. M. C. A. has
increased the scope of its work dur-
ing the past year by 75 per cent.
Its employed staff is double that of
last year, being four instead of two.
The University has increased its an-
nual appropriation from $3,500 to
$6,000, and the budget for this year
has been doubled.
These were some of the salient
points stressed by Secretary Harry
F. Comer at a banquet given re-
cently to inaugurate the three-day
campaign for funds among the fac-
ulty and students.
President Chase in appraising
the work of the "Y" said if he had
to pick a list of the half dozen most
vital organizations on the campus
he would place the "Y" high up in
TO BUILD THREE NEW
The building committee of the
University has authorized the im-
mediate construction of three new
dormitories to house 350 students.
The cost without overhead is esti-
mated at $336,000.- The new build-
ings will be southeast of the quad-
rangle group, on the other side of
the Raleigh road. They will prob-
ably be completed by next August.
The committee also authorized an
architect to proceed with plans for
a new chemistry building.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL
One gets an impression of the up-
to-dateness of Chapel Hill on a Satur-
day evening down at the Carolina
Cafeteria, when a group gathered
there hears a voice from Pittsburgh
reading out the football scores for the
day's games all over the United States,
within two hours after the conclusion
of the games. No more haunting the
telegraph office, just picking up frag-
ments of the sectional contests ; the
football program for the whole United
States speaks out of the air at eight
o'clock every Saturday evening.
Qualms of Homesickness
It is right in the middle of the fall
quarter every year that members of
the freshman class begin to discover
various reasons for going home. One
man says that he has decided that he
is called to be a farmer, rather than
a doctor, as he so foolishly thought.
Another man says that the climate in
Chapel Hill does not agree with his
health. Another man feels that he
came to college too young. One finds
that his home folks can not get along
without him ; another, the work too
hard, and so it goes. The resistance
of the average man to qualms of home-
sickness would seem to last about six
weeks. Then comes the crisis of the
disease and every year some succomb.
Then letters begin to come in: "Dear
Sir: Will I be allowed to return to
the University next quarter ? Since
coming home I have decided that I
want to go back." I doubt if there is
a handful of alumni that not recall a
similar feeling, if not a similar re-
sponse to it.
Pushball is Popular
It is a funny thing that the Carr
Building dormitory has always seemed
to have a peculiarly vigorous person-
ality. Some one has said that it was,
at one time, the frontier of the cam-
pus, speaking geographically and psy-
chologically. Certain it is that it par-
took of the nature of pioneer life to
live in it — I tried it for eight months.
But pioneer life has its virtues as well
as its faults, and the latest perfor-
mance at Carr dormitory is to respond
most heartily to the inter-dormitory
athletic competitions. I understand
that the freshman who does not go
out for push ball in the afternoon is
given an opportunity to explain his
reasons that night. I do not know
just what sort of excuses are accepted,
but I have noticed that Carr can easily
turn out thirty or forty men for a
The Intra-mural sports program,
which has given between 500 and 600
men a new opportunity this fall for
exercise and play, finds its only limit
in the amount of space available. To
see the gaunt iron ribs of a new indoor
playing field rising out of the trees
down toward the "Meeting of the
Waters," and to hear the musical re-
frain of negroes pulling stumps for
another outdoor field south of the
cemetery, stimulates the imagination
to conceive that day when we shall, at
last, have room enough for all inter-
ested men to have regular exercise
and physical recreation.
"Dean" Paulsen's Advertising
No one has ever accused the stu-
dent body of this University of dis-
regard for their own rights. "Dean"
Paulsen, of the Laundry, as the boys
call him, has been doing some very
extensive and effective advertising
this year — a loving cup to be awarded
to the push ball champions ; a large
forty-pound cake for the dormitory
winning the cross-country run; tag
football programs, and such other
interesting information inserted in the
laundry bundles. All of these things,
as welcome as they were, aroused in
the keen minds of the students the
question as to who was paying for this
advertising, if their laundry work was
supposed to be done at cost. So, one
fine morning, a deputation of students
waited on Mr. Paulsen to ask this
question. The reply was that the
laundry was indeed handling student
work at cost, and that funds for this
advertising, which was designed to
keep the laundry and its regulations
in the mind of the public, were derived
from the trade of the faculty and
town. One cannot help but wonder
what Mr. Paulsen's reply will be when
a faculty committee waits on him,
seeking this same sort of information.
The Boll Weevil Case
The thinkers and talkers of the
campus spent much time and energy
on the Boll Weevil question this fall.
The history of the thing briefly was
this : The manager of the Boll Weevil
had been found guilty by the Faculty
Committee, on the basis of evidence
submitted to it during the summer, of
dishonest business practices, and had
been refused registration in the Uni-
versity. He had, however, continued
his residence here and incorporated
the Boll W r eevil as a corporation in
the State of North Carolina, and had
associated with himself a number of
University students. The Executive
Committee took the position that the
Bool Weevil, under its present man-
agement, was injurious to the good
name and best interests of the Univer-
sity, and no University student should
be allowed to associate himself with
it for that reason ; furthermore, that
its present management was not trust-
worthy and that a University student
should not be allowed for his own
sake, to associate himself with a dis-
creditable and untrustworthy business
venture. The Board of Editors was
asked to buy out Mr. Brody, tire
manager, or disassociate themselves
from him. Unable to do the former
at what they regarded as a reasonable
price, the later course was pursued,
under protest. For some considerable
time the campus was criticising the
Executive Committee's action on sev-
eral grounds; that it had been directed
at Mr. Brody, but had injured the
members of the Board more than Mr.
Brody. That the Executive Com-
mittee should have submitted the evi-
dence it had against Mr. Brody to the
Board, for its inspection, before order-
ing their resignation ; that the matter
should have been handled by the Stu-
dent Council. Or that it should not
have been handled at all. However,
after all sides of the case had come
out, the campus generally agreed the
right action had probably been taken,
and that the student body, as a whole,
should organize for itself an official
student humorous publication. This
latter step has not yet been taken.

Freshmen Very Active
No list of the things heard and seen
around the well at this time would be
complete without one big paragraph
devoted to those things which are
heard and seen of the present fresh-
man class. This present freshman
class is the first one in six years which
has come out of a high school course
uninterrupted by the disorganization
of the war period. One of the officers
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
of the class said the other day, in ex-
planation of his progressive policy,
that he had learned in high school
that the hest way to have a good class
was to begin class activities early.
He learned this in high school in the
fall of 1919, and the class of 1927
bids fair to be one of the great classes
of the last ten or twelve years. For
instance, they gave two hours on Tues-
day before the Thanksgiving game to
building the biggest bonfire ever seen
at the University, to be burned at the
"pep" meeting before the game Wed 1
nesday night. "Every freshman bring
a box," is their motto, and they have
visited all the merchants in the town
in preparation for this enterprise.
What They Are Doing
The president of the freshman class,
J. A. Williams, of Hendersonville, has
appointed a freshman executive com-
mittee to determine the policies of the
class : a visiting committee to look af-
ter the sick and discouraged ; he has
already organized the class in prepar-
ation for snow. Another member of
the class has originated an entertain-
ment committee, which plans to enter-
tain the freshman in small groups,
until the whole class has met in this
fashion. There are, this year, fresh-
man cross-country, inter-collegiate
races and freshman intercollegiate de-
bates. President Williams and his
executive committee plan to appoint a
large finance committee to make as
close as possible to a 100 per cent
collection of class dues. The fresh-
men have learned the college yells and
three songs, and have put themselves
at the disposal of the cheer leader,
to do whatever he tells them to do,
and a freshman has written a new
college song, for which his mother
wrote the music, in competition for
the Grail prize for the best new col-
lege song submitted. Well, enough
has been said to show that it is a
thoroughly good class.
One Hundred Cake Winners
One of the most unique innovations
in recent years was the cake race this
tall, when 130 men, about ten times
as many as ever ran a cross country
here before, lined up on the south side
of Emerson Field and started on a
2 1-6 mile run, to see who should be
in the thirty that would not get one
of the 100 fine cakes baked by the
ladies of the town. To see all these
cakes in tempting array, spread out
on the benches in Emerson Field, with
the position of majesty and honor oc-
cupied by the forty-pounder presented
by Mr. Paulsen, of the laundry, was

Think of the scenes that took place
in Old West Building that night. Old
West won the run by placing more
men in the first 100 than any of the
remaining ten dormitories. Some one
figured out that there were two pounds
of cake to every man in the Old West
Building, when the individuals had
received their prizes and the large
cake had been awarded to President
R. W. Linker of that dormitory. How-
ever, no excess of infirmary calls
were reported the next day ; but the
matter does not end here — more men
are out for cross-country and varsity
track than ever before.
"The University is undertaking
to build several roads to open up

an extension of the arboretum east-

Editor. Alumni Review,
Chapel Hill, X. C.
Dear Sir : I submit that the diffi-
culties which you have in getting
alumni to express themselves and their
failure to cooperate with Grant's work
furnish just one more proof that the
critics of the South are correct in ac-
cusing us of sentimentality and in-
effectiveness. We can make long har-
angues on our loyalty to old Alma Mater
and even weep to thin;; of how we love
her but we do not care a hang about
her policies or her plans, and will not
take the trouble to inform ourselves
about them. We can get mad when
our team does not win or when we don't
get a seat on the 50-yard line but to give
time and energy to effective thinking
about university problems is too prosaic
We are like our politicians who get
red in the face proclaiming by the hour
their championship of the dear, down-
trodden farmer, but block" every effort
to give the farmer a square deal by
credits, organization and education. The
rebel yell was all right in the charge at
Bull Run but what we need now is less
emotion and more thought, less harangue
and more action.

the other is not. I am really disturbed

leave to comment upon the serio-comic
atmosphere which envelops the communi-

done in a decidedly juvenile and undig-

prudish in this point of view, and I ask

after working for a year with the
American Relief Administration in Rus-
sia where we gave away 80,000,000 dol-
lars worth of medicines and food and
were feeding 10,000,000 Russians. Con-
ditions are still very unsettled over here
far away from the peaceful campus of

the chief one being taught in Europe.
The French are treating the Germans,
including the women, unjustly and in
some cases brutally. There are negro
soldiers over the white inhabitants in
the Ruhr, and both Senator Owen of
Oklahoma and myself barely missed
being shot down by them when we were
in Bonn on the Thine. On the other
hand the Germans are sullen, resentful
and there is so much confusion and
chaos there that I have found it almost
impossible to do any work there.

account of the latest wallop with my bet-

feminine imagination, insists was a clear
call for "papa," — I say, I cannot relate
these comfortable little incidents of mari-

envy to those my brethren where ap-

appreciated, I will submit an item of a
different character, from this far out
corner of the world.

On Yale Game
Editor, Alumni Review,
Chapel Hill N. C.
Dear sir : In your comment on the
Carolina- Yale game you quote from the
Yale Alumni Magazine saying that
Georgia would make Yale extend her-
self. In your comment on the matter,
you seem to feel disgraced and that
Carolina lost prestige. You will notice
that Yale won from Georgia by the
score of 40-0 which all in all isn't so
much better than the Carolina- Yale score.
And moreover, Yale won from Princeton
27-0. This is a Yale year !
Frankly, I can't see where Carolina has
been so disgraced or humilated and she
did win the Trinity and State games !
When you look back to the time not so
very distant, Carolina was not in the
habit of winning even State games, and
we journeyed to Richmond year after
year only to see Carolina lose. Happily
that is past and now we are winning the
games in the south.
What is it even if Carolina does come
north and lose a game. Personally, I'm
strong for the present coaches and I
believe that most of the alumni are. I
think your comment editorially will not
meet the approval of the majority.
Very truly yours,

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.

How to multiply your estate by 3
DO YOU realize that you can multiply your estate about three times by
means of a Life Insurance Trust with The Wachovia?
Let us illustrate: — Suppose you put $10,000 in cash, securities or other pro-
perty into an irrevocable Voluntary Trust with us.
This Trust would yield about $600 a year, — enough to pay the premiums
on $20,000 in life insurance for a man of 35.
Then if anything should happen to you, your estate would be worth $30,000
instead of $10,000 — apart from your other property.
And this $30,000 would be held in Trust for your heirs, giving them an
income for life.
More about this Trust is told in our booklet, "A Question
the Future Will Not Answer ;" sent free upon request

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Through the generosity of two
Carolina alumni, who have withheld
their names. The Carolina Play-
makers are offering a fellowship in
play writing. It will be known as
the Edward Kidder Graham fel-
lowship, in memory of the late
president of the University, who in-
duced Prof. Frederick H. Koch to
come to Chapel Hill.
The fellowship is valued at $500
in cash and goes to the most promis-
ing young undergraduate for the
purpose of taking advanced work in
playwriting in the University.
This year it goes to Ernest
Thompson of Goldsboro, author of
"Mama" and "Wilbur's Cousin,"
two comedies taken on tour
throughout the State by the Play-
makers last year.
Despite the fact that thousands of
automobiles passed over the Durham-
Chapel Hill road Thanksgiving only
one minor accident was reported.
