Alumni Review 

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 

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

and a lower price to the consumer.

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 
possible sort. 

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. 

DDD 

Bigness * 

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 
of attainment. 

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.

Class Publications 



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 ! 

DDD 

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.

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- 
tility. 

Epoch-Making Changes 

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 
University. 

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. 

Scholarship Emphasized 

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 



104 



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

terian Church and Pickard's Hotel 



GRADUATE SCHOOL HAS 
REMARKABLE GROWTH 

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 
Georgia, etc. 

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." 



BOARDING FACILITIES 
INCREASED 

Anticipating the increase in stu- 
dents this fall, both the University 
and village improved their boarding 
facilities. 

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.

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. 

Home-Coming Day 

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 
stands. 

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 
the advantage.

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, 
manager. 

Bill Folger, of New York, who ran 
52 yards for the touchdown that de- 
feated Virginia in 1916 for the first 
time in 10 years, was among the old 
players back. 

Seated together were Governor 
Morrison, Secretary of State Everett, 
Commissioner of Revenue Doughton, 
Attorney General Manning, Adjutant 
General Metts and President Chase. 
Between the halves they were photo- 
graphed in a group. All displayed a 
lively interest in the game, especially 
Mr. Everett, who makes it a rule 
never to miss a Carolina game when 
it is possible for him to attend. 

The attraction between the halves 
was a pushball contest to decide the

TAG FOOTBALL FEATURES 
MASS ATHLETICS 

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 
of Philosophy. 



NOT FOLLOWING DAD'S 
FOOTSTEPS 

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 
years." 

Self-Help Students 

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.

tomobile filling station at the foot 
of Strowd's Hill. 




Tag football leads all University sports these days in point of general participation. 
is being played all over the campus.

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 
the resoults. 

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 
form. 

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-

derwood's berth in the Virginia game, 
has played well and will be one of the 
most promising backs next year if he 
returns. 

"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 
intense sort. 

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- 
LINA PLAY 

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 
4,000. 

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 
paid admissions. 

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 
o'clock." 

Two Seasons Compared 

Here is how the attendance for the 
past two seasons compare : 

1922: Wake Forest at Goldsboro, 
2,427; Yale, 15,000; Trinity at Chapel 
Hill. 3,897; Maryland at Chapel Hill, 
2,888; N. C. State, 9,756; S. C. at 
Chapel Hill, 2,649; V. M. I., 8,233; 
Davidson at Charlotte, 5,422; Vir- 
ginia at Charlottesville, 6,962. 

1923: Wake Forest at Chapel Hill, 
3,401; Yale, 20,000; Trinitv at Dur- 
4,000; Marvland at College 
2,000; N. C. State, 10,895; 
Carolina at Columbia, 3,500; 
I., 7,971 ; Davidson at Chapel 
Hill, 2,694; Virginia at Chapel Hill, 
14,231.

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 
the group. 



TO BUILD THREE NEW 
DORMITORIES 

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. 



CHAPEL HILL GETS MAIL 
BY CARRIERS 

Chapel Hill now has a house-to- 
house mail delivery system which 
will be extended to the dormitories 
as soon as they can be fitted with 
batteries of boxes. 

There are two carriers and de- 
livery is both morning and after- 
noon.

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 
contest. 

Intra-Mural Sports 

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. 

Fraternity Changes 

The old D. K. E. house is now 
occupied by a local fraternity, Gamma 
Phi ; the old Sigma Chi house is occu- 
pied by the masonic fraternity, 

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

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 



EXTENSION DIVISION 
CLASSES 

The Extension Division of the 
University, of which Chester D. 
Snell is director, has put into effect 
a program of conducting classes all 
over the state, and giving credit 
towards degrees for work satisfac- 
torily completed. 

Already groups of citizens in 
more than fifteen towns have made 
arrangements for courses, most of 
which have already begun. The 
towns that have completed arrange- 
ments include Raleigh, Greensboro, 
Durham, High Point, Statesville. 
Salisbury, Burlington, Sanford, 
< )xford, and Lexington. 

Prof. George H. Zehmer, who 
during the past summer was added 
to the staff of the Extension Di- 
vision, is organizing this state class 
work as head of the department of 
Extension Teaching. 



CAMPUS BEAUTIFUL PLAN 
EXPLAINED 

On University Day Dr. Wade H. 
Atkinson, '88, president of the Dis- 
trict of Columbia Alumni Asso- 
ciation, which inaugurated a move- 
ment to make the University campus 
"the most beautiful spot in the 
South," sent pamphlets to all the 
alumni explaining the plan and ask- 
ing for contributions. He an- 
nounced subscriptions of $1000 
each already have been made by 
three alumni, Dr. W. C. Coker of 
the faculty, James Sprunt of Wil- 
mington, and John Sprunt Hill of 
Durham. Dr. Coker is treasurer of 
the fund. 

Dr. Coker Explains 

In a letter to Dr. Atkinson, Dr. 
Coker indicates the ambitious 
scheme of improvement he has in 
mind. He says in part : 

a sight to make one's mouth water. 
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 
and develop adjoining woodlands, 
and open spaces, and I have now 
clearly in view a park system that 
I think will add greatly to the at- 
tractiveness of our environment. 
The principal item of this plan is 
an extension of the arboretum east- 
ward, through the lowest portion of 
Battle's Grove, along the north side 
of the brook and curving around 
the Battle property, (now owned 
by Dr. Bocker) and connecting with 
the recently established small park 
at Park place, the new faculty de- 
velopment. This plan includes a 
handsome bridge over the brook 
from the southwest corner of the 
Battle place, over which Battle 
street — the road in front of Dr. 
Battle's home — will pass to join 
Cameron avenue extended east- 
ward. This bridge, which I propose 
to be a memorial to Dr. Battle, I 
hope to build with help from an- 
other source. 

"The University of North Caro- 
lina is uniquely situated and has 
every natural advantage here to en- 
courage us to make this, not only 
the most beautiful university in the 
south, but in the United States. 

Three Projects 

"Three of the immediate projects 
that we hope to achieve are : exten- 
sion of the arboretum as an open 
valley park eastward along the 
north side and part of the south 
side of Battle's brook, through Bat- 
tle's grove and curving around 
south of the proposed road south of 
the Battle (now Booker) property 
and extending to Park place and its 
part, a path to run by the brook 
through this extension, and to pass 
under the above mentioned bridge 

"The planting of an imposing 
row of Japanese cherry trees some- 
where on the campus. 

"The extension of the North 
Carolina shrub garden south under 
the railroad, cleaning up and laying 
out as a park the low place that will 
lie south and west of the new chem- 
ical building and north of the new 
road back of the athletic field soon 
to be constructed." 

The committee sponsoring the 
plan is composed of Mrs. Josephus 
Daniels, James J. Britt, Julian S. 
Carr, Albert Cox, James A. Gray, 
John Sprunt Hill, A. W. McLean, 
Walter Murphy, A. H. Patterson, 
George Stephens, T. F. Hickerson, 
R. H. Wharton, Leslie Weil and 
Lionel Weil.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT 



J. Lawrence Eason, '11, head of 
the English department of the Ne- 
braska State Teachers College, 
Peru, and James Cloyd Bowman, 
head of the English department of 
the Northern State Normal School, 
Marquette, Mich., are joint authors 
of a new text book on "English 
Composition — For Normal Schools 
and Colleges," published by Har- 
court, Brace & Company, New 
York, off the press last month. 
Professor Eason's text book on 
"English, Science, and Engineer- 
ing," published by Doubleday, Page 
& Company, 1918, has reached the 
sale of 7,000 copies. 



The type of graduate school 
which is considered a superficial in- 
stitution for highbrows, and oper- 
ates chiefly in order to give teach- 
ers an opportunity to improve their 
certificates, is a thing of the past, at 
least in the University of North 
Carolina, according to announce- 
ments made in Research in Prog- 
ress, a bulletin which recently came 
from the University of North 
Carolina Press. 

"At Chapel Hill, in the laborato- 
ries and lecture-rooms of the state 
university, a definite effort is being 
made by the graduate students and 
members of the graduate faculty to 
solve such problems of statewide 
importance as means by which the 
vast amount of waterpower in the 
state may best be converted into 
electric current, the development of 
transition curves for highways, and 
the co-operative marketing of to- 
bacco and cotton. 

"Workers in 18 different depart- 
ments are devoting a large portion 
of their time to obtaining informa- 
tion and data which has a direct 
bearing on everyday life in North 
Carolina, abstracts of which are 
given in the current issue of Re- 
search in Progress." 



Robert YV. Winston, former 
judge of the superior court and now 
a student in the University, speak- 
ing in the Presbyterian Church in 
Chapel Hill recently, discussed the 
meeting of the Institute of Politics 
in Williamston, Mass., which he at- 
tended as an interested observer. 

He explained his plan for resto- 
ration of peace in Europe. This 
plan calls for the cancellation by the 
United States of all European debts 



along with minor revisions of the 
Versailles treaty. It is the result 
of interviews he had at Williamston 
with the representatives of France, 
Germany and England and is said 
by him to embrace the acceptable 
views of all three of these states- 
men. The plan has been published 
in full in the Current History 
Magazine. 



Dr. Archibald Henderson, in an 
illustrated article in a recent is- 
sue of ihe^International Book Re- 
view, reviews the controversy now 
being waged between the adherents 
of Newton and Einstein. Dr. Hen- 
derson shows that the theories and 
methods of the two scientists are 
so different as to seem to be en- 
tirely unrelated and yet the results 
attained by each are the same in al- 
most all cases. Einstein's theories, 
he says, have succeeded in explain- 
ing phenomena which the New- 
tonian theories were powerless to 
explain. The finite universe, of 
Einstein, he goes on to say, has a 
supre-diameter of three hundred 
million light-years. 

Dr. Henderson for the past sev- 
eral years has made a special study 
of relativity in addition to his uni- 
versity seminars on the subject. 



O. W. Hyman, A.B., '10, and 
A.M., '11, has an important paper 
in a recent number of the Journal 
of Morphology entitled: "Spermic 
Dimorphism in Fasciolaria Tulipa." 
Professor Hyman's investigation 
was carried on in Princeton Uni- 
versity and in the U. S. Bureau of 
Fisheries Laboratory at Beaufort, 
N. C. 



Dr. A. S. Wheeler of the depart- 
ment of chemistry, recently published 
the following papers giving the results 
of researches completed during the 
past college year : ( 1 ) The Constitu- 
tion of the Dichlorohydroxy-ethylide- 
nebis-nitroanilines (with S. C. Smith) 
Journal of the American Chemical So- 
ciety, 45, 1839; (2) Hydroxynaph- 
thoquinone Studies VI. The Chlori- 
nation of Juglone ( with J. L. Mc- 
Ewen), Journal of the American 
Chemical Society, 45, 1070; (3) The 
Direct Conversion of Derivatives of 
Dichloroacetic Acid into Derivatives 
of Trichloroacetic Acid (with S. C. 
Smith). Journal of the American 
Chemical Society, 45, 1994; (4) The 
Bromination of 2-Amino-p-xylene and 



Certain New Azo Dyes (with E. W. 
Constable), Journal of the American 
Chemical Society, 45, 1999. 

As indicated by the titles Juglone 
holds its interest after many years of 
investigation and another new group 
of dyes is described. The third paper 
is particularly interesting and is at- 
tracting outside attention for it brings 
to light a new type of rearrangement 
in organic compounds. 



John S. Terry, '18, associate edi- 
tor of School, New York City, told 
of the remarkable growth of the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina in a recent 
lengthy article in an issue of this pub- 
lication. The gist of his story, which 
was reprinted in several North Caro- 
lina dailies, was that the University 
had rejuvenated the State. 



The annual fall dances were held 
on Friday and Saturday following 
Thanksgiving. There were five. 

President Chase in Chapel took oc- 
casion to commend what he considered 
the excellent conduct of the students 
at both the Carolina-Virginia game 
and the dances. 



Basketball prospects are fine: Carl 
Mahler of Wilmington is the only 
member of last year's first string team 
not back. Two former Captains are 
back, Cartwright Carmichael and 
"Monk" McDonald. 



Sherwood Eddy, noted lecturer and 
student of world problems, gave a se- 
ries of six lectures at the University 
the first week in December. 



MATTHEWS IS CAPTAIN 
1924 ELEVEN 

Pierce V. Matthews, of Asheville, 
who played left tackle this past season, 
was elected captain of next years 
eleven at a meeting of the squad the 
first week in December. 

Matthews has played two years on 
the Carolina varsity and was picked 
for All-State tackle by most sport 
writers. He will be a senior next 
vear. 



Dr. Archibald Henderson, head 
of the department of mathematics 
of the University, has sailed for 
Europe, on a year's leave of ab- 
sence on the Kenan Research 
Foundation.

Are We "All Talk? ' 

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 
for us. 

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.

Are We Travelling Too Fast? 

Editor, Alumni Review, 
Chapel Hill, X. C. 

Dear Sir: I have delayed answering 
the letter from your office of Septem- 
ber 25 because I have been rather hesi- 
tant to say what I should like to say. 
Two developments on the "Hill" have 
been disturbing me considerably for the 
last year or two. Comment on one of 
them is in order here and perhaps on 
the other is not. I am really disturbed 
the premium Carolina seems to be 
placing on bigness and numbers and I 
most sincerely trust that she does not 
capitalize that. To lie sure, scholastic 
standards are maintained, and the usual 
high premium is placed on learning, but 
we who are away hear much of the big- 
I realize of course that great cx- 
■ .n is and must be in progress and 
1 onlj wish thai 1 could make a larger 
contribution to the Graham memorial 
fund than I have just done; but 1 do 
want to tell you how at least one alum- 
nus feels toward the Alma Mater, to 
which he thinks he is intensely loyal. 

1 he other matter on my mind docs not, 
strictly speaking, belong here, but I ask 
leave to comment upon the serio-comic 
atmosphere which envelops the communi- 
cations emanating from Alumni head- 
quarters. It seems to me that the ap- 
peals for funds and for news items is 
done in a decidedly juvenile and undig- 



nified manner, unworthy of so worth- 
while a cause. There is, I hope, nothing 
prudish in this point of view, and I ask 
that you please do not think that this 
protest is prompted by anything but a

Hair and Brains 

A. W. Long. Marasquan. N. J., writes : 
"I am ready to report. My fears have 
been realized. Motley Moorehead has 
lost most of his hairs. But there is still 
tin old twinkle in his eye. which is worth 
all the hair. After all, you cannot de- 
velop brains and grow hair at the same 
time. The side of the street where people- 
walk most will not grow grass. So there 
are comparisons in life. Why not be a 
philosopher? Ask Horace Williams'' 

A Grandfather's Pride 

Elisha Battle Lewis, '95, of Kinston 
writes : 

"1 am a grandfather. I live all alone 
in a big house, except at Christmas and 
in the middle of the summer. At those 
times some of the children and grand 
children come and stay awhile. All the 
boys were in the A. E. F., and all cami 
Tin- girl is now in college, third 
year, and she is the youngest. One of 
the boys i^ an advertising expert, .me i. 
a bond salesman, one i- a civil engi 
one is a si I her, and - ine i - an oil 

driller. Three of them are "Carolina" 
men. two of them "N. C." and star men, 
one is a Wake Forest graduate, and one 



ran away at 17 to join the Marine Corps 
in 1918, so he didn't get a chance. 

"Sometimes I put my feet up on the 
front porch railing, at night, when the 
moon is shining, and wonder why I am 
still hanging around, with nothing but 
memories and empty rooms for company. 
And then again sometimes the fish are 
biting out at Russell's Mill, and the old 
fashioned rose bushes bloom every 
spring." 

News From Europe 

Editor, The Review, 
Chapel Hill, N. C. 

Dear Sir : I am in London beginning 
a tour of the rrledical clinics of Europe, 
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 I". X. C. The gospel of- hatred is 
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. 

My congratulations to the Alumni 
Office for the commendable work it is 
doing with the leadership of Daniel 
Grant. 

Faithfully yours, 

W. Horslev Gantt.

headed as a billiard ball, and has grown 

taller anil thinner since '88. Looks a 
hundred.

Virginia's Lieutenant Governor 

Junius Edgar West, '86. is now Lieu- 
tenant-Governor of Virginia. He has 
also served as State senator and member 
of House of Delegates. His address is 
450 Washington St., Suffolk, Va. 

Harvey Campbell Promoted 

Harvey J. Campbell, who has been 
with the Guaranty Trust Company of 
New York in numerous capacities since 
graduation, has recently been appointed 
Southern representative of that institu- 
tion. Mr. Campbell will spend a con- 
siderable portion of his time among the 
Southern customers of the company, 
which include a large number of North 
Carolina banks and corporations. While 
at the University he assisted Mr. Warren 
in the treasurer's office. 

For Our Literati 

Folger Townsend, '20, winner of the 
Mangum medal, who lives on a farm 
near Chapel Hill, writes : 

"Am enjoying a state of severe celi- 
bacy. I cannot, therefore, like my more 
encumbered fellow alumni, give you an 
account of the latest wallop with my bet- 
ter half; or of that delightful all night 
hike up and down the bed room, with a 
screaming, clawing, fighting , detestable 
and unmanageable mass of infant flesh ; 
or of that first melancholy howl of my 
three months old son, a howl which my 
wife, by some inconceivable stretch of 
feminine imagination, insists was a clear 
call for "papa," — I say, I cannot relate 
these comfortable little incidents of mari- 
tal felicity, though it mortifies me so to 
confess. So, with a passing twinge of 
envy to those my brethren where ap- 
propriate, and a sigh of sympathy where 
appreciated, I will submit an item of a 
different character, from this far out 
corner of the world. 

"To repair a weakened constitution I 
am living, together with my brother, on 
a farm in the grand old county of Chat- 
ham. Our nearest neighbor is a gigantic 
frog that booms the long hours of the 
night from a pond in the pasture. Our 
companions are books, Berkshire pigs, 
Jersey calves and flocks of White Leg- 
horn chickens, and they do not make 
such bad company as you might think. 
Our occupation in the day time is to 
pamper our corn and vegetables and 
melons, and keep intimate friendship 
with our stock ; and our pleasure at night 
is to weigh anchor and roam the universe 
with such writers as Conrad, Stevenson, 
Kipling and Dumas.

'log' that you may get a glimpse of how 
things are going on now at Oak Heights?

term 'scurry,' literally thunder across the 
rafters overhead and crash down the 
walls and partitions, screeching and roar- 
ing as if they were intent on tearing to 
the ground this undisturbed, unguarded, 
catless, womanless house. A rooster 
crows scornfully from the barn. Sounds 
like 'Captain Blood' the cock-o-the-walk 
here. Another answers, and yet another. 

"We are in the library, our books piled 
around us. How many delightful hours 
have slipped over us as we read ! What 
travels have we taken tonight, what ad- 
ventures have we experienced, what 
characters have we made friends with ! 

"Let the universe roll, let the seasons 
change ; let the world totter on, to what- 
ever goal it wisheth, to Chaos or Perfec- 
tion, Ruin or Utopia : we feel not its 
convulsions, and will not know of its 
doom! We are not Atlas, and therefore 
our shoulders are not galled by the 
burden of mankind's woe. We are not 
seers and cannot prophesy the future ; 
we only know that the past centuries re- 
veal that man goeth on, and will go on 
forever. He reaches for the highest, he 
grasps at that which he conceives to be 
the noblest ; perhaps he may fathom the 
Truth towards which he struggles, in 
spite of failure and misery and infinite 
folly; perchance he may eventually get 
some glimpse of that wonderful light 
that lieth beyond the horizon. Who 
knows?" 

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, 

C. L. Johnston, 'IS.

ticing in the Danville State Hospital,

no lot or fence. No particular reason for 
needing either of them. Worse still, there 
are apparently no prospects. This is a 
sad but true story. Feel badly when- 
ever I call on Bill McNider or Louis

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.

front." — The Times, London, England.

Announcement 



We have moved from our old location on Martin Street to our new building 
across the Square opposite the Union Passenger Station. 

We invite school officers and teachers to visit our exhibit rooms where they 
will see many new things — some great improvements over the old lines of equip- 
ment. 

The greatest progress in school furnishing development during the past 
twenty years has been made during the past two years and we invite the critical 
inspection of competent school officials. 

Our business extended into twelve states during the past year and we feel 
that we are in position to meet the requirements of the school trade whatever they 
may be in quality, style, price and service.

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

FELLOWSHIP FOR 
PLAYMAKERS 

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.

State Everett addressed the Carolina 
Alumni in New York December 13.
