To Guarantee Persona! 
Contact and Guidance 

Is accepted by the University of North Carolina as a 
definite obligation to be met in the case of every student, 
and its complete achievement is provided for in a systematic 
manner. It is particularly during the first year in college 
that a student should not be left to the caprice of fate. 

The paths of collegiate life are strewn with human 
wreckage, and no institution has done its full duty until it 
has provided every possible agency to stimulate, strengthen, 
and guide young men and women as they first embark as 
"captains of their own souls and masters of their own 

Under the guidance of the Dean of Students ( whose 
office has a staff of three men), assisted by the Department 
of Psychology, every student who matriculates is carefully 
studied, and then stimulated and guided by the Dean, the 
V. M. C. A. with its two fulltime Secretaries, and fifty 
members of the Faculty who have voluntarily arranged to 
give a certain amount of their time to this important work. 
The University is the only Southern institution that has 
organized this personnel department ; and one of about 
twenty in the entire country.

She could not follow her boy away

has to give— in music, in lectures, in ser- 
mons—he took back to her.

"A Magic Carpet Back to Undergraduate Days" 

To the six thousand odd alumni of the University 
who have received at least three calls from the Alumni 
office for the filling out of blanks giving information 
about themselves and who, to date, have failed to com- 
ply with the request, The Review wishes to say sev- 
eral things. 

The first of these is that the University of North 
Carolina, with a history of one hundred and thirty 
years, is one of the very few institutions in the country 
that do not have a complete, up-to-date catalogue of all 
of their students. Thirty-five years ago Mrs. Cornelia 
Phillips Spencer brought out a very limited catalogue, 
and at earlier dates the Di and Phi Societies published 
lists of their members. But for the last thirty-five 
years, nine college generations have gone unrecorded 
in print and now that a serious effort is being made 
by the Alumni office to publish an adequate catalogue, 
two-thirds of the present body of alumni have not 
taken the trouble to fill out the questionnaire. 

The second is that to have failed in this respect and 
to this degree is nothing short of a shame. It may be 
true that the questionnaire is long, that it does not fit 
the exact case of any specific individual, and that some 
of the questions may seem absolutely silly. But be that 
as it may, an answer could be given in every instance 
which would at least contain the principal facts con- 
cerning the alumnus in question. 

The third is that failure to cooperate in this plan 
defeats the object of the catalogue. Obviously the 
record should be complete and kept so by revision at 
least every five years. And it cannot be complete with 
information concerning two-thirds of the alumni left 

The fourth is that the alumni who are withholding 
information are depriving others of a most genuine 
satisfaction ; for such a catalogue which calls back to 
memory the names and faces of campus associates who 
have passed this way will prove to be to all alumni 

"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." 


Does the Snow Lie Deep? 

When this Review reaches local and class secretaries, 
the snow may be lying deep on the ground, but even 
at that, there is immediate work ahead if the programs 
of local associations and of reunion classes are to be 
carried out satisfactorily during the winter and in 

Secretary Grant has issued a call for a conference 
of class secretaries for early January which it is hoped 
will bring all class secretaries to the Hill and will result 
in the steady development of a strong, effective general 
alumni organization ; and to the officers of the ten or 
more classes which are to return for their reunions in 
June their classmates are looking for a program that 
will top it over any ever carried out before. 


A New Stadium Needed 

The visit of newspaper men to the University to 
witness the Carolina- Virginia game brought two ques- 
tions to the tore — the need of a new stadium, and 

Graduate Manager Woollen came back from the 
game with State College in Raleigh visibly worried. 
He had already planned for 13,500 reserved seats on 
Emerson field but with a day for the Carolina-Virginia 
game like that of the Carolina-State game he knew 
that no amount of life insurance could protect him 
from the wrath of the thousands to whom the man at 
the gate would have to say "Standing room only." 

Louis Graves, '02, in the Chapel Hill Weekly, states 
the need of the stadium and offers a plan for provid- 
ing it. The Greensboro Nezvs and the Durham Herald 
both agree as to the need but, through constant asso- 



ciation with the chambers of commerce of their respec- 
tive cities, reach the conclusion that the stadium should 
be erected in Greensboro and Durham and not in 
Chapel Hill. 

But as to the need. Louis Graves states it in this 
fashion : 

The University may as well make up its mind to this — it has 
got to have a bowl. Bowl, or stadium, or coliseum, or what- 
ever name you choose to give to a monumental enclosure for 
the accommodation of vast crowds at athletic contests. About 
15,000 people came to the Carolina-Virginia game last week. 
Half a dozen years from now, probably twice as many will be 
eager to attend; and the number will grow steadily — if only 
the seats are provided. 

Whether it should be so or not — there are some who now 
and then raise their voices to deplore it — the great athletic 
spectacle is a settled feature in the program of modern college 
education. The public dearly loves a show of physical prowess. 
They loved it when David felled Goliath with a slingshot, they 
loved it when the ancient Greeks raced and threw the discus, 
they loved it when gladiators met in the Roman arena two 
thousand years ago, they love it now, and they will always love 
it. By a process of evolution, into the causes of which it is not 
now our purpose to inquire, the obligation of supplying the 
spectacles in these times has fallen mainly upon college stu- 
dents. Public opinion supports the system, and moralizing and 
protesting are not going to affect it. This being so, let us get 
busy here and proceed to do promptly what other big institu- 
tions, of the North and Middle West and the Far West, have 
already done : that is, prepare for the crowds. 

The generosity of Isaac Emerson, a former citizen of Chapel 
Hill, gave us the present concrete structure. But it is outgrown 
after only four or five years. Perhaps it will serve as part of 
a greater stadium ; perhaps it will remain for a certain sort 
of contests while an entirely new structure is erected in some 
other place. In either event, the name of Emerson will surely 
be associated with the larger arena, and the honor that is his 
will not be effaced. 

□ □ □ 

How to Finance It 

After stating the need, the Weekly suggests one way 
of financing it. Institutions elsewhere have followed a 
variety of methods. 

The way the thing is done is to sell shares in the stadium in 
advance, each share carrying with it the ownership of seats, 
either in perpetuo or for a number of years. The method has 
been tried out and in more than one instance and has proved 
entirely successful. 

For instance, the committee in charge says to alumnus John 
Brown and alumnus Thomas Jones and every other alumnus, 
and to many another citizen not listed among the alumni : 
"We need money for a stadium. You put up $100, and you 
get a share which entitles you to two seats at the Carolina- 
Virginia game in Chapel Hill for the next twenty-five years ; 
the share is negotiable, and can be sold, given away, or trans- 
ferred in any way you choose." Or it may be for all, not 
merely the Carolina-Virginia, games ; or maybe for twenty, 
or twenty-five, or thirty games of whatever kind. The details 
of the offer can be worked out by the committee, with plenty 
of good precedents as a guide. 


But Not in Greensboro or Durham 

The Weekly properly places the home-coming event 
and the stadium in Chapel Hill, not in Greensboro or 
Durham. The spectacle is, after all, a college spec- 
tacle. And, for college men it is more than a spectacle. 
For the undergraduate it is an occasion during which 
the currents of campus life are started running deep 
and strong. And for the scattered sons it is a home- 
coming, with atmosphere and traditions that no other 
place can possibly supply. 

The game played on Riddick field, in October, where 
one institution was host to another rival, stimulated 
loyalties and impressed rules of fine sportsmanship to 
a degree impossible of attainment on a neutral munic- 
ipal field ; and the host of Carolina alumni who glimpsed 
the well and the trees and visualized the rapid growth 
and steadily increasing strength of Alma Mater as a 
great American university went back to their homes 
from Emerson field on Thanksgiving day with a higher 
resolve to assist her in the realization of all her ideals. 


Then, Where on the Campus? 

Alumni sentiment, as expressed in many quarters, 
clearly indicates that a bigger stadium there must be. 

That being the case, it becomes the duty of the 
proper alumni and University authorities to begin the 
consideration of three major questions : where shall it 
be placed on the campus, what shall be its ultimate 
capacity, and what method shall be followed in putting 
the thing across. 



The other matter that received attention from the 
press was drinking. That there was considerable 
drinking, even on the part of women, is a fact testified 
to by many witnesses. The Charlotte Observer, the 
Greensboro News, the Durham Herald, and the Tar 
Heel, among others, recorded the evidence, and the 
Observer and the Herald were moved to comment edi- 
torially on it. The Observer thought it saw a number 
of collegians among those imbibing; the Tar Heel knew 
that it saw two women drinking out of a golden flask 
and it became disgusted at their ineffective attempt at 
the use of profanity. The Herald thought the col- 
legians were to be exonerated and placed the blame 
on the "soda fountain cowboys" who were playing the 
role of sports for the day in Chapel Hill, and on society 
in general. 

The Review is convinced that drinking on the part 
of the student body was at a minimum and that such 
drinking as there was on the part of visitors was of the 
same sort as that to be noted on any like occasion in 
any other place in North Carolina, with the difference, 
however, that it was more noticeable because it was 
on the campus of an institution where young men are 
being trained. The fact that there was drinking, how- 
ever, did mar the occasion, and if the big home-coming 
event in 1925 is not to be marred in similar fashion, 
something will have to be done about the matter. Can 
the alumni aid in the doing? 


The University Press 

Information has been furnished The Review to the 
effect that although a news story and editorial com- 
ment concerning the University of North Carolina 
Press appeared in the September issue and a full page 
advertisement of the Press appeared in the October 
issue, which were mailed to 8.000 and 4,000 alumni, re- 



spectively, only one order for one of the ten books 
advertised as published or to be published lias been 
received from alumni. Other orders have come from 
various quarters within and without the United States, 
and even from distant earthquake shocked Japan. But 
to date only one alumnus of the University of North 
Carolina has sent an order for the Press' first offer- 
ings. Evidently alumni have not as yet genuinely 
adopted the hobby of picking up first editions of local 
presses ! 

At the first blush, this is not a particularly good 
showing either for the Press or the alumni. But the 
very near future will reveal a far better one. The idea 
on which the Press is based is fundamentally sound, 
and, once the alumni know what it is, they will come 
to the support of the Press not only with orders, but 
with endowment funds as well. 

The reason why The Review predicts this with 
such confidence is based upon the major purpose of 
the Press as set forth by the director in his forth- 
coming report to President Chase : 

The major purpose of the Press is to give the University 
standing in the field of publishing commensurate with its stand- 
ing in the fields of teaching, research, and extension. To 
enter the publishing field here in the South, to develop a great 
scholarly publishing business similar to those built up by Har- 
vard and Yale and Chicago in America, and Cambridge and 
Oxford in England, can and will bring the University dis- 
tinction of the same high character as that brought it by the 
development of its various schools with the additional advan- 
tage that its scholarly output can be even more widely dis- 
seminated throughout the scholarly world than the graduates 
of its schools. Through the publication of books and studies 
which members of the faculty are constantly producing and 
publishing elsewhere, through text books which it may publish 
and place in other colleges and universities of the country, 
and through its scholarly journals (of which it is interesting to 
note that it has more than Yale or Princeton, to mention two 
of the large private institutions of the East) it can give evi- 
dence throughout the entire world of its high scholastic attain- 
ments. Conceived of in this manner the establishment of the 
Press is an event of the very greatest importance not only to 
the University but to the South and Nation, and its steady 
development should instantly command the most serious 
thought and the fullest support of the entire University. 


A Good Time Coming 

Professor E. C. Branson, writing of the gifts made 
by Danes to museums and art galleries and libraries 
and university presses, furnishes another reason. It 
is contained in two prophetic paragraphs appearing in 
the University News Letter for December 12 under 
the heading "A Good Time Coming." Here it is : 

I comfort myself by saying that it takes time to build a 
civilization and to create native fine arts and a native liter- 
ature — thousands of years, not just a few hundred. Give 
North Carolina time and with the urge she now feels — an urge 
that no man can ever destroy in my opinion — she will be just 
as great in her place on the planet as any other civilization in 
history. Why not? 

Some good day Xorth Carolina will have her rich patrons 
of art and literature — men of a sort with Maecenas, the Fug- 
gers in Augsburg, and the Jacobsens in Copenhagen, men who 
love literature and the fine arts as Sprunt and Hill and Ricks 
love history. Then we shall have a great art school, a great 
music school, and a great university press at Chapel Hill. We 
are rich in many things but we are poor in the fine arts. Life 
is bare and hard and uninspiring for too many people in North 
Carolina. It ought to be different and it will be different 
when the wealth of our rich men and women is lavished upon 
native cultural art as the wealth of the Jacobsens was in Den- 
mark. Their Glyptotek alone — and it is only one of their 

many gifts to the state that made them rich — gives them 
immortality for a few million kroner. Their names will last 
as long as" the art it treasures, just as Maecenas lives on and 
on with Horace. Most men when they die are dead, fatally 
dead, dead as a door nail, as Dickens said Mr. Marley was. 
But not so the Jacobsens in Copenhagen, and it will not be so 
in North Carolina, some good day. 

□ □ □ 

What Two Years Will Bring Forth 

The general appearance of the approach to Chapel 
Hill from Durham has not, except for contrast between 
the present and former type of road, struck the return- 
ing alumnus as very different from what it was five or 
ten years ago. An occasional new home is to be seen 
now that was not in evidence formerly, but until the 
campus itself is entered, the fact of the University's 
growth is not really evident. 

When the next Thanksgiving throng pours into the 
village in 1925, however, the approach from the east 
will have undergone radical changes and many an 
alumnus will have occasion to rub his eyes in Rip Van 
Winkle fashion before he gets his bearings. Roadways 
will lead off from Franklin Street through Park Place 
and to the South and East to the Booker (Battle) and 
Gim Ghoul developments ; the new Episcopal church 
and Parish House will have been wrought into a beau- 
tiful unity with the present Chapel of the Cross; the 
central unit of the Graham Memorial Building will 
occupy the site of the Old Inn; the auditorium and 
open court of the new Methodist church will replace 
the Seaton Barbee house, and the Woman's Budding 
will have been erected between the Episcopal church 
and the Raleigh road. 

If, fellow alumnus, you wish to see the Franklin 
street you have known in former years, you are advised 
to come quickly ; for these are the plans that are now- 
getting underway, and this is what the next two years 
will bring forth. 


Genuine, Though Belated Appreciation 

The University in May and November has been made 
the subject of two most flattering special articles 
appearing in New York weeklies. The first, which 
appeared in Collier's Weekly for May 26, was from 
the pen of VV. O. Saunders, of Elizabeth City, who, in 
recent years, has become a regular contributor to New- 
York publications. The second, entitled "How North 
Carolina has been Rejuvenated by its University," is 
by J. S. Terry, '18, and appeared as the leading edi- 
torial of School for November 8, of which Mr. Terry 
is editor. 

Both articles comment at length upon the wonderful 
progress in Xorth Carolina, and each, in turn, attrib- 
utes ii in large measure to the influence of the Uni- 

The Review has read both articles with unusual 
pleasure. It maintains, as do the writers mentioned, 
that the University has been preeminently a leader in 
the transformation which has been wrought in the life 
of the State within the past decade, and accordingly it 
speaks its genuine, though belated appreciation of the 
commendations which Alma Mater has received. . 




Would Keep in Closer Touch to Facilitate Work of the Central Office 
Secretary Grant Confers With Groups Throughout State 

With the view to co-ordinating the 
work of the local alumni clubs, the 
class organizations and the central 
office, Secretary Grant held confer- 
ences with a number of the larger 
alumni groups throughout the State 
last month. The matter of financing 
the Central Office for the year was 
also considered. 

There were meetings in Winston- 
Salem, Greensboro, Concord, Lexing- 
ton, High Point, Goldsboro, Wilming- 
ton, and Kinston. Other conferences 
will be held this month. The plan is 
to add a full-time field secretary to 
the staff of the Central Office to make 
possible such conferences more fre- 


The Winston-Salem meeting was 
held in the Robert E. Lee Hotel. Presi- 
dent R. G. Stockton presided. There 
was an attendance of about 25. 

The purposes and ideals of the Gen- 
eral Alumni Association as conceived 
by its present officers were presented 
by Secretary Grant. Then there was 
an informal discussion lasting two 
hours and participated in by Burton 
Craige, James A. Gray, Moses 
Shapiro, R. G. Vaughan, Forrest 
Miles, G. B. Porter and others. 


The Greensboro meeting was held 
in the Chamber of Commerce. Presi- 
dent Wharton presided. Those in 
attendance were: I. Harding Hughes, 
C. L. Weill, C. R. Wharton, Chas. 
Van Noppen, Lenoir Chambers, Al- 
len Banner, Edward M. Sweetman, 
Henry Foust, Robert Moseley, W. S. 
Dickson, E. B. Jeffress, Henry 
Koonts, M. Robbins, E. E. Rives. 


Luther P. Hartsell, president, presided 
over the Concord meeting. Those 
present included: F. J. Haywood, W. 
H. Gibson, B. W. Blackwelder, 
Cameron MacRae, Dr. P. R. Mc- 
Fadyen, Dr. W. D. Pemberton, Frank 
Arnifield, Rev. W. A. Jenkins, E. C. 
Earnhardt, Jr., L. T. Hartsell, L. T.

Carolina Men; 

2. Makes practically useless the 
efforts of the 3,500 who have 
shown their interest in this un- 

3. Makes the $25,000 spent on 
ground work, during the last 
twelve months, a matter of spec-

provided the proper sort of op- 
portunity; and

dent ; H. G. West, secretary ; Z. V. 
Walser; Dan A. Walser; L. A. Mar- 
tin; J. A. Raper; E. C. Byerly. 


The Wilmington meeting lasted 
more than two hours and was fea- 
tured by much constructive discussion. 
Those present included : R. C. deRos- 
sett, president ; Marsden deRossett, 
secretary; J. G. Murphy, J. N. Brand, 
J. W. Yates, J. H. Hardin, Jr., Louis 
D. McMillan, W. H. Moore, J. A. 
Moore, D. B. Sloan, T. J. Lilley and 
Reginald Mallett. 

Hight Point 

The High Point group laid plans 
for a big meeting late this month. 
A member of the University faculty 
will be invited to make the principal 


The Lenoir County alumni met on 
December 17 in Kinston and planned 
a banquet and dance for the holidays. 

The meeting was presided over by 
Ely J. Perry, president of the Lenoir 
association. Among those present 
were D. M. Hardy, C. F. Harvey, Sr., 
E. R. Tull, Ely J. Perry, L. E. Fields, 
G B. Lay, Meriweather Lewis, J. L. 
Philips, and W. D. Harris. 


The secretaries of all alumni classes 
are expected to gather in Chapel Hill 
for a conference on January 11. 

Many of the classes are not organ- 
ized and for these Secretary Grant 
has named representatives pending 
elections at reunions. A large atten- 
dance is already assured but efforts 
are being made to have every class 
with living members represented. 

Full information is contained in a 
letter Secretary Grant has sent the 
duly elected secretaries and others des- 
ignated to attend. 

The major matters to be considered 
are: (1) A complete roster of class 
officers ; (2) A gathering of class 
records, possibly in book form; (3) 
Class reunions at Commencement; (4) 
Completion of alumni records; (5) 
strengthening of the class conscious- 

Special emphasis will be given the 
matter of completing alumni records. 
Questionnaires sent to 7,500 alumni 
have not been returned. They are 
necessary for the completion of the 
alumni catalogue. 

"The issue is at its crux," says 
Secretary Grant. "Shall we have an 
alumni association, or shall we con- 
tinue the futility to which we have 
become accustomed ? During the past 
year we have done a tremendous 
amount of detail work in starting an 
office. We are ready for the record 
step : that must be taken by the class 
secretaries. To a degree, scarcely be- 
lievable, then the future of this work 
depends upon this conference. 

The conference is being aranged 
under the joint auspices of the Exe- 
cutive Committee of the Alumni Class 
Secretaries and the Central Alumni 
Office. The executive Committee is 
composed of H. M. Wagstaff, '99; W. 
S. Bernard, '00; T. J. Wilson, Jr., 
'94 ; L. J. Phipps, '22. The first con- 
ference of class officers was held in 
October, 1922. 




Carolina- Virginia Game Thanksgiving Brought Matter to the Fore With Striking 

Emphasis Several Alumni Come Forward With Plans That Have 

Been Tried With Success Elsewhere 

The spectacle of 15,000 football en- 
thusiasts in Chapel Hill Thanksgiving, 
with seats for only 13,500 — and most 
of them temporary — brought to the 
fore with striking emphasis the need 
for a larger stadium. 

In his first issue following the game, 
Louis Graves, '02, editor of the Chapel 
Hill Weekly, wrote an editorial urging 
the necessity of the immediate erection 
of a larger enclosure and outlining a 
plan that has been tried with success 
in other institutions. 

Subsequently there appeared edi- 
torials in the Greensboro Daily News 
and Durham Morning Herald urging 
that such a stadium be erected in then- 
cities. The editorials are reprinted 
herewith on page 145. 

Since the agitation began The 
Weekly has printed a number of let- 
ters from prominent alumni, all agree- 
ing as to the necessity for a larger 
stadium but differing somewhat in the 
method proposed for raising the neces- 
sary funds. The salient points in 
these letters are reprinted below. 

The Weekly's Plan 

The editor of the Weekly, in out- 
lining his plan, writes: 

"The way the thing is done to sell 
shares in the stadium in advance, each 
share carrying with it the ownership 
of seats, either in perpetuo or for a 
number of years. The method has 
been tried out and in more than one 
instance and has proved entirely suc- 

"For instance, the committee in 
charge says to alunmus John Brown 
and alumnus Thomas Jones and every 
other alumnus, and to many another 
citizen not listed among the alumni: 
"We need money for a stadium. You 
put up $100, and you get a share which 
entitles you to two seats at the Caro- 
lina-Virginia game in Chapel Hill for 
the next twenty-five years ; the share 
is negotiable, and can be sold, given 
away, or transferred in any way you 
choose. Or it may be for all, not 
merely the Carolina-Virginia, games; 
or maybe for twenty, or twenty-five 
or thirty games of whatever kind. The 
details of the offer can be worked out 
by the committee, with plenty of good 
precedents as a guide. 


The Review is anxious to get 
alumni opinion regarding the 
proposals looking toward the 
erection of a larger stadium to 
care for the ever increasing 
crowds who come to Chapel Hill 
for football games and other 
athletic events. 

Several plans have been advo- 
cated and their sponsors say they 
are business-like and have been 
tried with success elsewhere. 
The Review's suggestion is that 
a committee be appointed to con- 
sider the merit of each plan. 
Meanwhile this publication is 
anxious to have from the alumni 
:is many expressions as possible, 
to be printed in full or in part 
in these columns. 

"Just by way of illustration: if two 
thousand persons took shares at $100 
each, that would make a fund of 
$200,000. The rest, if more were 
needed, could be raised by a loan, with 
a first claim on the gate receipts as se- 
curity. One has only to consider the 
history of the big games in the North 
and the rapid grow'th in attendance 
here, to conclude that a loan so secured 
should be acceptable even to the most 
careful money-lender. There were 
just about twice as many tickets 
bought for last Thursday's game here 
as for the Thanksgiving game four 
years ago. The steady rise in the 
number of students at the University, 
and therefore of alumni ; the build- 
ing of good roads that enable visitors 
to come long distances with ease ; the 
increase in the population and wealth 
of North Carolina — these factors re- 
move all doubt that there will be suffi- 
cient income to support the undertak- 

W. N. Everett 

W. X. Everett writes: I don't think 
we would have any trouble at all in 
putting the $200,000 proposition over. 
The only question in my mind is: is 
the $200,000 enough? 

Dr. Foy Roberson 

Says Dr. Foy Roberson: "Friends 
and alumni have shown their interest 
in the University's athletics to a mark- 
ed degree; and it is only just and right 
that they be comfortably taken care 
of after they have traveled many miles 
to witness athletic contests. I do not 
mean to reflect discredit, in the least, 
on those who have these matters in 
charge ; because I know that they have 
done exceedingly well with the very 
poor equipment they have. However, 
the fact remains that of the 15,000 
people who witnessed the game on 
Thanksgiving Day, practically not 
more than 3,000 or 4,000 were com- 
fortably situated; this is certainly not 
gratifying to either those wdio have 
these matters in charge, or to those 
who suffer." 

Burton Craige 

"Your editorial on facilities for the 
game at Chapel Hill is timely and 
should be promptly heeded," writes 
Burton Craige. "Indeed, if a gloomy 
wet day like Thursday brings an over- 
flow crowd, the necessity for enlarge- 
ed facilities is now upon us. It will 
never do to dampen this enthusiasm 
which has, in the making, a great na- 
tional event. Your plan is workable 
and should bring about every needed 
facility. I hope the plan for a larger 
stadium will be worked out success- 

W. Stamps Howard 

From W. Stamps Howard of Tar- 
boro comes a letter which says: "If 
the University expects to hold the high 
position already obtained in athletics, 
-lie must have immediately a new gym- 
nasium and an athletic field that will 
seat thirty thousand people and which 
can be easily enlarged to double this 

Mr. Howard says that the State's 
appropriations will naturally have to 
go for other things than for athletics, 
and there fine that the money for the 
stadium will have to be raised inde- 

He says that a million ought to be 
in sight — and that "a million and a 
half would be infinitely better" — to 
launch the project, and adds: "I be- 
lieve that either of these amounts can 



be raised by group insurance taken out 
by alumni for $500 each, by a ten- 
year payment policy." The balance, 
according- to Mr. Howard's plan, 
would be raised by a loan. He con- 
cludes : 

"I am heart and soul for this bigger 
stadium and am not wedded to any 
particular plan. What we want is re- 

Charles Whedbee 

"Just what plan may be adopted to 
carry the thing through is immate- 
rial," says Charles Whedbee of Hert- 
ford. "The great matter is to secure 
somehow the necessary enclosure. I 
shall be glad to assist in any way I can 
to make this fine idea a reality." 

Maxcy L. John 

"It does not seem to me that there 
is any way out of it — we must have 
a stadium, or bowl," writes Maxcy L. 
John of Laurinburg. "People dcery 
athletics sometimes as people decry 
large institutions ; but when the money 
is offered for healthy expansion there 
is no faculty or board of trustees that 
refuses the means to provide for larger 

attendance if offered the larger atten- 
dance. The small institution may 
make a virtue of necessity and boast 
of its smallness ; but it expands as 
fast as it possibly can, and will be 
one of the big ones some day, if pos- 

"So with athletics. The institution 
that can put on satisfactory athletics 
soon finds that it must do so, and that 
the whole student body is helped by 
the wholesome enthusiasm and com- 
radeships of clean athletics. Without 
contests there will not be that enthusi- 
asm that carries forward a whole body 
of young men toward proper recrea- 
tion and physical development. To 
get this in its best surroundings and 
setting it must be on the campus of the 
institution, so that the boy who can- 
not or will not otherwise get the urge 

A. W. McLean 

Angus Wilton McLean writes from" 
his home in Lumberton : "As I stated 
before the Alumni Association in Fay- 
etteville in October, I believe that in 
ten years the University will have at 
least 10,000 students, and that the at- 
tendance will steadily increase in fu- 
ture vears. Athletic contests will grow 

in importance as the University ex- 
pands. I believe it is only a question 
of time when a larger place to stage 
these contests will be a prime neces- 
sity. Even now, the present facilities 
are entirely inadequate." 

George Stephens 

George Stephens of Asheville, a 
former University athlete and for the 
last score of years one of the most 
active men in alumni affairs, writes 
that the idea ought to be "put across" 
without delay. 

Gen. Julian S. Carr 

General Julian S. Carr is another 
who is strong for it. 

"The University by all odds is the 
place to erect the stadium or bowl," 
he writes. "Tell Grensboro and Dur- 
ham to keep off the grass. A stadium 
at Durham or at Greensboro does not 
meet the question at all. We must 
have a bowl at the University suffi- 
ciently large to meet the University's 
needs. I believe that Honorable W. 
N. Everett is right when he says a 
stadium or bowl can be built by alumni 
subscribing for shares of stock with 
the right to seats." 

The University of North Carolina

Surprise Them With Figures and Facts Regarding University's Growth 
Large Number Present at Mid-Winter Dinner 

The New York alumni got together 
for their winter dinner at the Hotel 
Brevoort on December 13. 

President Chase and Secretary of 
State Everett were the principal 
honor guests. George Gordon Battle, 
president of the New York chapter, 
was toastmaster. 

The addresses of President' Chase 
and Secretary Everett were in the 
nature of a report of what is going 
on in North Carolina and they pre- 
sented facts and figures that surprised 
those not fully informed about the 
remarkable growth of their native 

President Chase Talks 

President Chase's talk was a digest 
of his annual report to be made this 
month. The point he stressed was that 
"the University is no longer merely an 
under graduate college — though the 
undergraduate college exists. It is a 
University with the complex functions 
and tasks of a University." He con- 
tinued in part : 

Faculty Numbers 160 

"With a faculty of 160 men, the 
University is teaching nearly 2,200 
students. Of the quality of this facul- 
ty it is only necessary to say that it 
has attained such general recognition 
that last year the University was ad- 
mitted to membership in the Associa- 
tion of American Universities. In 
this group are twenty-five leading 
Universities of America, including 
Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Chi- 
cago, Columbia, and the great middle- 
western Universities. During the 
twenty odd years of the existence of 
this Association the University of 
North Carolina and the University of 
Virginia have been the only Southern 
universities admitted to membership. 

"This association of universities is 
based entirely upon the quality of the 
work done and it is a notable fact 
that many universities of respectable 
standing have been unable to procure 
membership. It is a compliment to the 
University of North Carolina that she 
has been admitted. 

"The problem of assimilating the 
new men has come to be one of our 
chief tasks. This year there are 700 
freshmen, coming from 97 counties 
in the state. Ninety per cent of the 

President Chase told the . New York 
alumni the University is no longer merely 
an undergraduate college — that it is a 
University in the modern sense of the 

students are North Carolinians and 
80 per cent are from our public 

"We are trying to analyze the task 
of assimilation intelligently. We are 
striving to meet this problem of tran- 
sition from every angle, giving each 
man an opportunity to give testimony 
as to his aspirations. 

"As an illustration of how the 
freshmen are choosing careers, mem- 
bers of this year's class have desig- 
nated their choice in the following 
order : 

Medicine Comes First 

"First, medicine, in which 100 are 
entered; next law, with teaching third 
and business fourth. It is interesting 
to note that so many men are thinking 
of teaching as a career. Another in- 
teresting feature is that 95 per cent 
of the new men have indicated their 
desire to follow vocations other than 
those of their fathers. ' 

"As an adjunct to teaching a good 
library is invaluable. Ours is a differ- 
ent sort of place now. We have with- 
in the last year added 12,000 books 
and pamphlets. During the course 
of the year more than 25,000 books 
were loaned out, which shows that we 
are doing some studying at Chapel 

Hill. Our library is now among the 
32 leading libraries of the country. 

Graduate School Has 329 

"The Graduate School, including 
students spreading their work over 
several summers, numbers this year 
329. The group includes students 
from 16 states. Last year we con- 
ferred 42 advanced degrees ; this year 
there are 9 candidates for the Ph.D. 
alone. It is a hopeful sign for the 
State and . the South that expert 
knowledge and training is at the dis- 
posal of the men who are to lead 
the South. 

"Research goes on among the facul- 
ty in a vigorous way which actual 
comparison shows is without parallel 
in any other Southern institution. Our 
University Press is the only one in 
the South today. A bureau of educa- 
tional research has been established 
recently to discover facts and dissemi- 
nate information regarding the educa- 
tional system and products of the State 
and the various sections of the State. 

"Another function of the Univer- 
sity is its direct service to the State. 
There is at the University a great 
mass of knowledge and technical skill 
which it would be tragic to separate 
from immediate contact with the 
State. The modern State University, 
with its wide range of special knowl- 
edge available, through its faculty 
places it freely at the disposal of the 
groups, organizations, professions and 
individuals of the State. 

Secretary Everett Speaks 
Secretary Everett said that the Uni- 
versity cannot consider limiting num- 
bers. Such limitation he asserted, 
would destroy the true spirit of dem- 
ocracy which now pervades the cam- 

Speaking of the opportunities now 
offered in North Carolina, he said 
that whereas 4,500 citizens left the 
State in 1920 while 1,500 were return- 
ing, now the eyes of the nation are 
focussed on Tar Heelia and national 
publications are glad to publish data 
concerning her prosperity. His con- 
clusion was that : 

"The progress and prosperity of 
North Carolina is the result of the 
willingness of the people to follow 
the vision of their leaders. You asV 

I -10 


how we have been enabled to build up 
the splendid educational system and 
the magnificent roads. We did it by 
getting to the hearts of the people, 
by arousing a spirit of helpfulness 
and devotion. Men lose their hearts 
and souls to the State which takes 
them and makes them hers and shapes 
them to her needs." 

Tames A. Gray of Winston-Salem, 
who happened to be in New York at 
the time, was another prominent guest. 

The dinner was arranged by a com- 
mittee composed of John S. Terry, 
secretary of the New York Associa- 
tion, Chairman; George Gordon Bat- 
tle, Junius Parker, Alfred W. Hay- 
wood, A. W. Folger, Ralph D. Wil- 
liams, David Brady, Stroud Jordan,

now playing at the Morosco. 


During the holidays 100 self-help 
students, under the direction of Secre- 
tary Grant, devoted a large part of 
their time to the gathering of alumni 
records for the catalogue that the Cen- 
tral Office hopes to publish in the 
near future. 

The students canvassed the alumni 
in their respective communities by 
making personal calls.

The fourth annual inter-collegiate 
cross-country run, held in Raleigh on 
December iX, was won by N. C. State 
College on a technicality when Jack 
Milstead, one of the Carolina runners, 
who finished in sixth place, made an 
unintentional short cut as he was Hear- 
ing the goal. N. C. State made 37 
points and Carolina 35. Wake Forest, 
Trinity and Elon trailed the leaders in 
the order named. 




Carolina's basketball prospects are 
fine. The squad suffers the loss of 
only one man from last year's team — 
Carl Mahler, guard, of Wilmington. 

In reserve strength the squad prob- 
ably excels the Southern Champions 
of l f >22 or the South Atlantic Cham- 
pions of last year. Twenty-five men 
are out for practice. Two former 
captains are hack, Cartwright Car- 
michael and "Monk" McDonald. 

Winton Green, of Wilmington, is 
captain of this year's team. Carmi- 
chael will hold down his old berth 
at center. "Monk" and Sammy Mc- 
Donald appear to be the choices for 
guards, although other candidates are 
showing up well, especially Johnny 
Purser, Jr., Bill Dodderer, and Bill 
Devin. Dodderer will probably alter- 
nate at center and guard. 

Captain Green, Jack Cobb and Jim- 
my Poole are among the best looking 
forwards. Other members of last 
year's varsity showing up exceptional- 
ly well are Lineberger, Ambler, Solo- 
mon and Wright, guards ; Penton, Se- 
burn and Bowen, forwards, and Blan- 
lon, center. 

Members of last year's freshman 
-quad who look good include Barber 
and Koonce, guards ; Yelverton, Jack 
Milstead, Fisher and Davis, forwards; 
Watt and Cordon, centers. 

Norman Shepard is coaching the 
squad. Bretney Smith of Asheville 
is manager. 

The schedule is one of the hardest 
the University has ever undertaken. 
The Northern trip includes games 
with such strong teams as V. M. I., 
the Navy, the University of Mary- 
land, Catholic University, University 
of Virginia, Lynchburg College and 
Washington and Lee. There are two

The University Glee Club, under the 
direction of Prof. Paul J. Weaver and 
Theodore Fitch, gave its annual con- 
cert in Chapel Hill on December 12. 


Here are a few signal honors, re- 
cently accorded, to illustrate the fact 
that the University of North Carolina 
is widely recognized and takes high 
rank among leading institutions 
throughout the country: 

Dr. S. C. Mitchell, professor of 
history in the University of Richmond, 
speaking in Ashland, Va., last month, 
at the dedication of the Walter Hines 
Page Memorial Library, referred to 
the remarkable growth of the Univer- 
sity in the course of his address and 
said among other things : 

"The most creative institution to- 
day south of the Mason and Dixon 
line is located at Chapel Hill." 

Dr. Mitchell was formerly president 
of the University of South Carolina, 
1908-13, and president of the Univer- 
sity of Deleware, 1914-20. 

A meeting of the National Associa- 
tion of State Universities in Chicago 
last month re-elected President Chase 
Secretary, which means he will have 
charge of arranging the program. 

At a recent meeting in Charlottes- 
ville, Va., of the Association of Amer- 
ican Universities, comprising a group 
limited to twenty-five leading univer- 
sities in America, the University of 
North Carolina was elected vice- 
president, the officers being institu- 
tional. Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, Dean of 
the Graduate School, attended as the 
University's delegate. During the 20- 
odd years of existence of this associa- 
tion North Carolina and Virginia have 
been the only southern universities ad- 
mitted to membership. 

At a meeting of the Association of 
Colleges and Secondary Schools of the 
Southern States in Richmond, Va., 
last month, President Chase was elect- 
ed to membership on the Executive 
Committee and Acting Dean Walker 
of the School of Education to the 
Chairmanship of the Commission on 
Accredited Schools of the Southern 

lie. left tackle, 
Captain of next year's football team. 


Thomas J. Wilson, 3d, member of 
(he French faculty in the University 
and son of the Registrar, has been 
chosen, from among many candidates, 
to be North Carolina's next Rhodes 
scholar at Oxford University. He 
made a distinguished classroom rec- 
ord in the University, winning mem- 
bership in Phi Beta Kappa, and was a 
good tennis player. 




Stock Taking Gives Eloquent Proof of Value of Graduate Study 
Former Students Widely Scattered 

The Graduate School of the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina has recently 
been taking stock of its labors and ac- 
tivities. An information card was 
sent to each student who has received 
within the past nine years one of the 
higher degrees (A. M., M. S. or 
Ph.D.), conferred only upon those who 
have carried on advanced study and 
investigation after receiving the A. B. 
degree from a standard institution.

Authors, investigators, scien- 
tists, university professors, bu- 
siness men, engineers and many 
more are found in the list of 
alumni of the Graduate School. 
They are scattered through all 
parts of the country, the West 
as well as the East, the North 
as well as the South. Many are 
holding positions of trust and 
responsibility; frequently their 
work is of such a nature that 
only their graduate study makes 
it possible for them to pursue it. 

They represent a new type of 
Alumnus, the Graduate Alum- 
nus,, a type which the Univer- 
sity is sending out in ever-in- 
creasing numbers. 

As you glance through these 
personal items, you will be con- 
vinced that here the University 
has an immense asset and an ex-

Albert Coates, chairman of the Law 
School Asociation has anounced that 
three justices of the Supreme Court 
have accepted the Association's invi- 
tation to address the students of the 
Law School during the winter and 
spring. It is hoped the other two jus- 
tices will find it possible to accept the 
invitation extended to them. 

Chief Justice Walter Clark will 
open the series of addresses on Friday 
night, January 23. in Manning Hall, 
Chapel Hill. 

It is the plan of the Association to 

invite a number of the Superior Court 
judges next year and the year follow- 
ing a number of leading members of 
the bar. This process will be repeated 
every three years, so that the members 
of each class, during their three years 
;i- students here, will have an oppor- 
tunity to hear members of the Supreme 
Court bench, the Superior Court 
bench, and the bar. 

The Law School Association is a 
recently formed body of which every 
student in the law school is a member 
and of which Albert Coates is organ- 
izer and chairman. It has for its pur- 
pose the promotion of the Law School 

The board of directors is composed 
'i the following students: Watts 
Hill, Durham; S. M. Whedbee, Hert- 
ford; A. L. Purrington, Jr., Scotland 
X'eck: C. E. Gowan, Windsor; A. J. 
Eley, Woodland; C. C. Poindexter, 
Franklin; S: M. Cathey, Asheville. 

The board of advisors consists of 
A. C. Mcintosh, P. H. Winston, R. 
II . Wettach, and F. B. McCall, of the 
law school faculty, and President 
Chase and Charles T. Woollen, repre- 
senting the University administration. 

The Charlotte High School won

Last Saturday night Ray New- 
some, Fred McCall and I journeyed 
around to the old Di Society to see 
what it was like in these degenerate 
days. It happened to be the Fall 
term business meeting and in spite of 
all the changes in Society programs, 
these meetings have their traditional 
flavor. After the election of officers 
with a mild amount of politics, there 
came the report of the officer on the 
right and the officer on the left and 
then the treasurer and so forth. 
"Mr. President may I retire" was to 
be heard with the usual frequency. 
"Mr. President, the gentleman is in 
error, I was present that night." And 
so in this hall hallowed by the pic- 
tures of distinguished predecessors the 
glorious boys transact the same old 
business with the same old mixture of 
humor and seriousness. I believe it 
still happens that the aspiring poli- 
tician announces that he "has a man in 
mind" and his aspiring opponent sub- 
mits that the candidate is in very 
cramped quarters. 

Debate Audiences Smaller 

The University of North Carolina 
debaters defeated the University of 
South Carolina team in Gerrard Hall 
last week. The South Carolinians said 
that we should have the Federal Con- 
stitution so amended as to give Con- 
gress power to pass a uni form national 
divorce law. We said this should not 
be done since the Constitution was al- 
ready amended not wisely but too 
well, and the judges voted unanimous- 
ly for us. However it was a good 
debate and was followed by a pleas- 
ant smoker to which all former inter- 
collegiate debaters were invited. Thad 
Adams of Charlotte came down and 
reminded some of us that in his day 
such a debate would have packed Ger- 
rard Hall with students and the ladies 
of the community. The debaters seem 
to be as interested in their job as 
ever but the crowd certainly has lost 
interest since those good old days ; 
for two hundred would be a record 
crowd for a debate now-a-days. 

New Fraternity System Popular 

For the first time in many a year 
the rushing season for fraternities is 
over and some four score freshmen 
are wearing pledge buttons of various 
hues which they will exchange for 
pins after the opening of the spring 
quarter if they pass enough work. 
The new system seems to be uniformly 

popular. The upper classmen and 
freshmen both have been able to get 
down to work for examinations. In- 
cidentally the pledges, added to the 
sophomores initiated this fall, swell 
the ranks of fraternity chapters be- 
yond any point seen hitherto. For 
instance one chapter has 33 members. 

The Co-Eds Pledge One 

The boys claim they have a good 
joke on the co-eds. They say that the 
fact that the two sororities pledged 
only one of 100 co-eds would indi- 
cate that the co-eds don't like each 
other any better than the campus 
seemed to like them last spring. 

About Holiday Spirit 

Some members of the student coun- 
cil are trying to figure out some form 
of plea that will be effective with 
those of the alumni who come back 
in holiday spirit full of holiday spirits. 
The student body as a whole did man- 
ful work at Thanksgiving to keep the 
game and the dances free of objection- 
able behavior, but six intoxicated in- 
dividuals not only see double but look 
quadruple and so the result is that in 
spite of heroic efforts the students are 
urged by the editor of at least one 
state daily to look more carefully to 
their conduct. They are inclined to 
pass the buck to the alumni and urge 
those few who do want to go on an 
occasional spree to please take it some 
where besides Chapel Hill. 

Freshmen and Examinations 

Seven hundred and fifty young 
North Carolinians are facing their 
first collegiate firing squad and as 
usual some of them are getting a little 
nervous about it. I don't know just 
how it affected most of the alumni, but 
1 have never forgotten my feeling of 
hopeful helplessness as I faced that 
dark and unknown experience of my 
first University examination. About 
twice a day now some chap comes into 
the office complaining of nervousness 
and inability to concentrate. I sup- 
pose the trouble is that he is trying to 
concentrate a fall's work into a week. 

Some Misunderstanding 

Every year there arrive on this 
campus several men who come here 
from homes and communities which 
have exerted all conceivable pressure 
to keep them away from this Godless 
den of wickedness. They always ex- 

press their surprise at the wholesome- 
ness of our life here and begin to 
write back home to try to tell the 
home folks that Chapel Hill is not 
the Devil's own private stamping 
ground. I don't know whether it is 
due to the University's enemies or to 
the college student's insatiable love 
of telling big tales back in his own 
home town, but for some cause or 
another great areas of the state seem 
to feel that their University is a 
heathen, wicked place and the sur- 
prise of the freshmen who come from 
these places at the abundance of reli- 
gion and genuine goodness that they 
find here mixed in with the usual ele- 
ments of other sorts would be comical 
were it not for the feeling that it is 
too bad that so many good people in 
the state should misunderstand an in- 
stitution which belongs to them. 

Glee Club in New Role 

The University Glee Club has just 
returned from the most successful 
tour it has ever made — a tour that 
was distinguished by some very re- 
markable things. The program was 
made up largely of semi-classical and 
religious music, with just two inter- 
ludes of jazz. The fact that this sort 
of program was so uniformly popu- 
lar would indicate that the people of 
North Carolina appreciate good music. 
It has been the custom during past 
years to have the program made up 
of humor and jazz and so-called popu- 
lar music that the rah-rah college boy 
was supposed to find most pleasant. 
This new departure is just as popu- 
lar with the boys of the club as it 
has been with their audiences. 

Wrestling Established 

When a thousand students go out 
to witness the try-outs in wrestling, 
that sport may be fairly said to have 
become established. Just a year old 
this fall, it bids fair to take a perma- 
nent and solid position in the hearts 
of the campus. 

Shooting in the Dark 

Some one has said that writing is 
like shooting in the dark. You can 
pull the trigger and produce an ex- 
plosion, but you never know what you 
hit. It would be very helpful if those 
whom this department of the Review 
has been missing would speak up and 
let us know just what sort of campus 
news they are thirsting to hear most. 
— F. F. B., '16. 




The University of North Carolina 
has been signally honored in being 
elected vice-president of the Associa- 
tion of American universities. 

The election was at a business meet- 
ing of the association just held at the 
University of Virginia in Charlottes- 
ville, the officers being institutional. 
Harvard university was chosen presi- 
dent and the University of Michigan 

Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, dean- of the 
graduate school, represented the uni- 
versity at the meeting. More than fifty 
presidents and deans of leading uni- 
versities were present. The university 
was elected to membership in the asso- 
ciation last year. 

Dr. Greenlaw, who has returned 
with the news of the election, said to- 
day that he heard many commendatory 
things said about the University of 
North Carolina at the meeting. The 
delegates consider its growth phenom- 
enal, he said. 

Among the delegates present were 
Presidents Campbell of the University 
of California; Lowell, of Harvard; 
Jessup, of Iowa; Goodnow, of Johns 
Hopkins; Scott, of Northwestern; 
Wilbur, of Stanford; and Alderman, 
of Virginia. — Charlotte Observer. 

The Chapel Hill Weekly is much 
exercised over the problem of pro- 
viding accommodations for the spec- 
tators at the biennial Virginia-Caro- 
lina football game. This year 15,000 
spectators turned out on that occasion. 
and Emerson field couldn't hold them. 
The Weekly guesses that in half a 
dozen years the number of would-be 
spectators will double, and it calls 
for the erection of a stadium capable 
of holding them. 

We commend this to the attention 
of the gentlemen who are bestirring 
themselves to secure the erection of 
a great athletic stadium in Greensboro. 
It seems that the city has here a chance 
to render conspicuous service to the 
university and to the state at large. 
Why not build the stadium, and offer 
its use to the scholastic authorities 
whenever they undertake to pull off a 
big one, whether it is a football game, 
a base ball game, a track meet, or 
what not? 

Greensboro is in better position than 
the university itself to take care of 
inter-collegiate athletics, for the 
Greensboro stadium would be avail- 
able, not to the Carolina teams only, 
but to all the college athletes. For the 

university to undertake to erect an 
enormous stadium for one game that 
comes to Chapel Hill only once in two 
years seems decidedly a doubtful ven- 
ture. A similar stadium erected at 
Greensboro, on the contrary, would be 
well located to stage at least a dozen 
important events every year. As the 
town is more easily accessible than 
any of the college towns — taking into 
consideration the fact that alumni are 
scattered over the whole state — games 
played here ought to attract greater 
throngs than they would draw any- 
where else, with consequent benefit to 
the box office receipts, and the college 
athletic association. 

It is necessary merely to mention the 
fact that such an institution would go 
far toward making Greensboro a cen- 
ter of interest for all sorts of college 
activities, and therefore familiar to 
every college man in the state, to show 
where the town would profit by sup- 
plying the facilities that the college 
athletes need. — Editorial in Greens- 
boro Daily News. 

There is this much about it : The 
first city in the central part of the 
state that erects a big athletic field 
with seating accommodations for the 
largest crowds will be the city that 
will attract the big games and put 
itself on the map as a good place for 
holding the more important athletic 
contests. We would like to see Dur- 
ham be that city with vision and 
courage to meet the demand and re- 
ceive the benefit therefrom. If the 
city or a group of individuals cannot 
be induced to assume that undertaking, 
we would like to see Trinity college 
build a big bowl. Trinity needs one, 
being probably about the poorest 
equipped for accommodating large 
football crowds of any of the larger 
colleges in the state. Circumstances 
are going to compel that institution 
to make more provision for handling 
her football and baseball contests, and 
it would be well for her to launch the 
undertaking on typical Trinity scale — 
large enough to care for the needs far 
into the future. The University needs 
a large athletic field, but it will be 
difficult for her to get it without the 
alumni or some rich friend of the in- 
stitution coming forward with suffi- 
cient funds to provide it. Being a 
state institution, depending upon the 
whim of an ever-changing legislature 
for her support, the chance of ever pre- 
vailing upon legislators to appropri- 

ate funds for a stadium are indeed 
slim. The mention of one or two 
hundred thousand dollars for an ath- 
letic field would send about half of the 
average legislature to the hospital with 
a stroke of something similar to 

But, something needs to be done. 
Some progressive city, or group of 
citizens, will have to come forward 
and supply the need for an athletic 
field if this state is to meet the de- 
mands now being made upon it in that 
respect. The city that is first to meet 
that need is going to be the city that 
will win. — Editorial in Durham Morn- 
ing Herald.

Just before examinations and the 
end of the first quarter the eighteen 
fraternities at the University pledged 
89 members of the freshman class. 
This marked the inauguration of the 
new system — in vogue for the first 
time this year — which permits pledg- 
ing of the first year men just before 
examinations and initiations after 

Last fall the fraternities initiated

en others. This means that when all 
those pledged are initiated the total of

ham was the only girl pledged. She

ternities last fall, however.

Turlington in Constantinople 

Edgar Turlington, '11, Rhodes 
scholar and student of international 
law, was sent by Secretary of State 
Hughes to Constantinople last spring 
to discuss and settle some claims 
Uncle Sam held against the Turkish 
government. We take the following 
account of his doings from a recent 
letter concerning him : 

Edgar went to Lousanne in April. 
He was a member of the American 
delegation. He was sent over as a 
legal and economic expert. He en- 
joyed the experience very much ; work- 
ed very hard, sometimes as late as 
4 A. M. He met many interesting 
people, was entertained at the U. S. 
Embassies in Berne, Paris, and Lon- 
don, went on jaunts with the nobility 
of various countries, had a fine time 

After the Turco-American treaty 
was signed he took a month of travel 
through western and central Europe. 
He went back to Oxford, went to Cam- 
bridge, spent a few days in London, 
going then to the Hague where he 
attended some lectures on Interna- 
tional Law. From there he went to 
Berlin for several days' stay. Then 
he went to Leipsig, Trieste, Vienna, 
Budapest, Sophia and on slowly to 
Constantinople, seeing things as he 
went along. 

In Constantinople he is one of the 
U. S. High Commission and is there 
for the discussion and settlement of 
some pecuniary claims which our 
government has against the Turkish 

He is having a very interesting 
time there. He witnessed the evacu- 
ation of Constantinople by the allied 
troops and the entrance of the Turkish 
troops into the city both of which 
were accompanied by great enthusi- 
asm. He has met the noted Halide 
Hanum, the foremost woman of Tur- 

He believes that the New Turk 
party is earnestly desirous of reform- 
ing their government upon the lines 
of modern civilization. He says the 
Turkish girls have the most beautiful 
eyes he has ever seen. The time of 
his return is very indefinite. Things 
move very slowly in the East and the 
near East. When his work is finished 
in Turkey, however, he will return to 
the State Department where he will 
aid in important drafting in connec- 
tion with foreign relations.

went west 20 years ago, first to Texas and then 
to Nevada, and successively engaged in teach- 
ing, commercial pursuits, writing and publish- 
ing. Magazine writing took him to Goldfield, 
where he is now a mine operator — prominent 
and wealthy. 

At the Legion Convention 

Hilary H. Crawford, '17, who is prac- 
ticing law in San Francisco, reports he 
saw several Carolina men at the recent 
American Legion Convention, among 
them Maj. David B. Cowles, '08; Harold 
Metz, '16, Luther Hodges, '19, of Leaks- 
ville ; Col. Rodman, department com- 
mander of North Carolina, and R. H 
Rouse, Law, 'IS. 

Mr. Crawford is commander of San 
Francisco Post No. 1, American Legion, 
with 900 members and one of the larg- 
est posts in the state. He is alternate to 
the national executive committee of the 
Legion and a member of the Democratic 
state central committee. He was dis- 
charged from the army as first lieuten- 
ant, infantry, in the fall of 1920 and later 
took an LL.B. in the University of Cali- 
fornia. H. H„ Jr., arrived a year ago. 

Here's a Suggestion 

George H. Cooper is pastor of the 
Haven Evangelical Lutheran Church in 
Salisbury and chaplain of the Samuel C. 
Hart post of the American Legion. Also 
he is chaplain of the Salisbury Civitan 
Club. He writes : 

It is useless to tell you U. N. C. is on 
the map in Salisbury. Her sons play an 
important part in every activity in the 
city. It would be interesting to have 
someone prepare a "Who's Who" in all 
the larger towns of the state and find out 
what U. N. C. men are doing. 

With Rondthaler in Europe 

Francis Bradshavv, '16, has received 
from Theodore Rondthaler, '19, who is 
spending the year travelling in Europe, 
the following letter postmarked Tours, 
France : 

Greetings and peace on the earth. They 
may put an ocean in the way but they 
can't stop good greetings. Thank the 
Lord I don't need ectoplasm to live in the 
presence of my friends. Yesterday, be- 
ing Thanksgiving Day, and as we sus- 
pended the rules and the ban on English, 
thoughts naturally wandered back to real 
old Chapel Hill — and you are the gainer 
by a letter. How on earth are things 
chez vous? The missus, my love to her; 
and tell Parson hello when you see him. 
I get a clipping now and then from 
mother ; or a stray Review — all the rest 
is darkness and doubt. 

Oh, but this has been a wonder year ! 
A good shot hits the crossroads — this 
has been one ; at last : satiety and vaga- 
bondage ; sweet restlessness — what a 
capital to lose ! And the pain of curi- 
osity satisfied. Some bits of snap-shots 
enclosed scarcely suggest the color of the 
skies, much less the odor of the soils, 
the story in gorgeous two weeks tour 
through Switzerland into France, and 
much about therein. Then I came down 
here and closeted up with the language — 
which seige ends today. The plan is 
now: a turn up into Holland, a twist of 
the tail in Belgium — and then on back to 
Christmas and U. S. A., the only land on 

Apart from utterly wrecking faith and 
sapping the last trace of the loving-kind 
ness, the crudest theft of life and study 
in present-day Europe is that of hope. 
A compassion, without hope, for its peo- 
ple, and a black distrust of this world 
they live in — the whole of it, you under- 
stand — is the precious bequest of a year 
in Europe today. There are sufferings 
here which melt the heart; there are 
hatreds which deform it, and despairs 
which freeze it so. One will weep for 
the individuals one knows, but turn one's 
back on the whole with a coldness that 
only a cynic should feel. 

The old in Europe has taken on a new 
life since the vacation days when our 
fathers knew it, because the times which 
bred the old and the atmosphere which 
quickened it have returned again. Old 
castles on the Rhine are as songless as 
their builders were grim ; and a gaping 
hole in Reims Cathedral tells a story of 
heaven that stained glass windows were 
invented to deny. 

I leave England, as you observe, for 
"the next time." England is easier. 
Meanwhile, thank heaven, there's one 
place left, which may even survive my 
three score ten, where luck and oceans 
have made a happy people and produced 
a thousand workshops — a good opiate, 
work — where I belong. 



McKay's Impressions of Europe 

Arnold A. McKay, '13, Professor of 
English in the United States Naval 
Academy, Annapolis, Md., who has just 
returned from a four months tour of 
Europe, presents his impressions in an 
interesting manner in the following letter 
to The Review : 

After four months spent in central 
Europe I am entirely willing to admit 
that I know absolutely nothing about 
conditions over there. Since first im- 
pressions are generally the most lasting, 
however, I have come back with some 
very definite opinions — or prejudices if 
you like — concerning certain European 
countries and their ideals. I hesitate to 
write them down, but since every other 
American carpetbagger is doing the same 
thing, I can't be shamed into remaining 

Before proceeding to the awful duty 
of castigating Europe, let me mention the 
only two incidents that stand out as 
bright lights in an otherwise drab though 
interesting picture. In Geneva I saw in 
a hotel a fellow who looked like a Caro- 
lina man. It proved to be Eugene Bar- 
nett, "former secretary of the Y. M. C. 
A., and now a power in the new China. 
He wore a silk shirt and looked prosper- 
ous. He talked most interestingly of 
China and its hopes showing a familiar- 
ity with the political and economic forces 
at work there that was both astonishing 
and gratifying. He was on his way into 
Germany. Another Carolina man was at 
Lausanne, Edgar Turlington, who had 
gone there on some mission connected 
with the Department of State. He is 
now in Constantinople on a similar mis- 
sion. He is handsomely, fitted, both by 
temperament and training, for such work 
and is no doubt quite happy in it. 

Depressing as most of the trip was, 
however, there were some compensatory 
features. For example, in Berlin I met 
a famous United States senator — one of 
the "bitter enders," a noble legionnaire 
in the battalion of death. I asked him 
what he thought of Europe. He called 
me aside and with fatherly solicitation 
whispered confidentially in my ear : "I'll 
tell you what is wrong with Europe. It's 
war !" That was the only piece of genu- 
ine humor I ran into in all the 5.000 
miles of travel — and I visited all the 
cabarets and amusement places, too. 

But to return to the castigation — or 
rather the characterization — of certain 
European countries. Here is how they 
impressed me : 

France : like an old stage beauty who 
has lost none of her winning personality 
and who still insists that she is young, 
vigorous ; and a headliner. Yet every 
one of her warmest admirers realize that 
she is beginning to slow up. France to- 
day is suffering from bad leadership. 
Her ruinous policy in the Ruhr can have 
but one result: inflame her partisans, im- 
poverish her citizens, and estrange her 
neighbors. She is weakening the kindly 
syrnpathy and support that powerful 
friends would like to offer. 

Numa F. Heitman, 'S3, of Kansas City, 
•ioneer and constructive leader of the legal 
profession in Missouri. 

Holland : a profiteer type of country. 
Like America she is inordinately wealthy. 
A mediocre country, well-ordered, with- 
out any conspicuous faults or virtues. 

Switzerland: overrun by American and 
English tourists. Except for the snow 
and an entrancing lake here and there, 
it is not half so beautiful as western 
North Carolina — honestly. 

Austria: a bankrupt aristocrat that the 
League of Nations has given a new lease 
on life. 

Italy: Napoleonic with weak gestures 
of strength. Becomes greatly peeved if 
the rest of the world does not take seri- 
ously her tawdry mimicry. 

Belgium : the most patriotic and na- 
tionalistic of all European countries. 
Has more soldiers to the square mile and 
less producers, perhaps, than even 

Germany : despite their stupidity and 
grossness, the German people — not the 
German war party, mind you — are by all 
odds the most vigorous and most power- 
ful in Europe. There may be a strong 
militaristic sentiment there still, but I 
can honestly say that I did not see any 
evidence of it and I tried to talk with all 
classes. Given half a chance, Germany 
should develop into a powerful republic 
in fact as well as in name. 

And I returned thinking what of my 
own country? I came back with the 
feeling that America has for a time laid 
aside her ideals. She has forgotten she 
ever had a soul. Today the greatest 
menace to the peace of the world is the 
United States of America because of our 
stupid foreign policy, our smug content- 
ment, and our tepid attitude towards all 
matters that do not directly concern us. 
We are not militaristic and vicious, but 
careless and thoughtless. While Europe 
is suffering from bad leadership, America 

is suffering from no leadership at all ; 
and I am not sure which is worse. 
George Gordon Battle told his fellow 
alumni aDout it on University Day. A 
gentleman on S street, Washington, also 
had a few words to say November 10 on 
our present foreign policy. When such 
great leaders point the way, it is not 
necessary for others to express their 
opinions. I have come back from Europe 
witli the very ardent conviction, tempered 
and strengthened by contact with the old 
world jealousies, superstitions, hatreds, 
and necessities, that we ought to help. 
How, I am sure I don't know. That is a 
problem for our statesmen, financiers, 
and sociologists. But it seems to me the 
whole tragic question comes back to this : 
If we really believe in democracy as a 
principle of government, we ought in 
some way to offer encouragement to the 
European countries who have been left 
desolate and helpless by the old order 
and who are desperately anxious to try 
democracy — anything — that offers escape 
and hope. We ought to do this or we 
should stop all this moronic prating about 
America, the great democracy, the 
Fourth of July ideal for the suppressed 
nations of the earth. In other and more 
cruel words, .we ought to show up or 
shut up. 

Carolina Men at Oak Ridge 

Zack L. Whitaker, of Oak Ridge Insti- 
tute, writes : 

Below you will find a wee bit of news 
relative to some of the alumni here at 
Oak Ridge Institute. At our institution, 
on the faculty, are five graduates of the 
University of North Carolina. They are 
as follows: Earle P. Holt, '03; Zack L. 
Whitaker, 'IS; J. A. Capps and T. O. 
Wright, '17 ; and Amos J. Cummings, 
'23. Three of us are married and have 
families. E. P. Holt married Miss 
Eugenia Harris, of Chapel Hill, in May 
1914. He has two children living: 
Thomas and E. P. Jr. 

J. A. Capps married Miss Esther 
Smothers, of Canton, N. C, March 26, 
1921. To them, on July 29, 1923, was 
born a daughter, Martha. 

I was married to Miss Mary Blair 
Maury of Danville, Va., June 3, 1922. 
We have a fine son, Thomas Early, II, 
born August 25, 1923. 

Practical Jokers 

The following extract concerning Ab- 
ner Nash, '06, is from a Newburg, Ind.. 
newspaper : 

Hoisting engineers, employed on the 
construction of Dam 47, Newburg, are 
practical jokers, according to Abner 
Nash, government supervising engineer. 

"Look at this white shirt!" said Nash. 

It was peppered with soot, oily and 

"Whenever they see a man with a 
white shirt approach they open the steam 
valves and blow out the flues," he said. 
"The soot comes swirling down in 
massed clouds."

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.

How to multiply your estate by 3 


O 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

All successful men 

use the tcasted process 

in their business! 

THEY call it Efficiency. But 
it amounts to the same thing. 
Because, stripped of its purely 
technical significance, the Toasted 
Process is efficiency by another 
name. It represents the last ounce 
of effort which, in all the produc- 
tions of men, distinguishes the 
isolated examples of quality. 
Toasting the tobaccos in LUCKY 
minutes to the cost of production, 
but it seals in the ffavor. 

And we would rather save the 
flavor than the time.
