Contact and Guidance 



Is accepted by the University of North Carolina as a 
definite obHgation 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 
destinies." 

Under the guidance of the Dean of Students (whose 
office has a stafif 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 
Y. 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.

The Expanding Campus 

The Review makes grateful acknowledgement to 
the University Record (the President's Report num- 
ber) for the use of the outline map of the campus 
which appears in this issue. Just such a map, which 
includes all of the campus, past, present, and pros- 
pective, as well as the grounds east of the campus 
variously styled Battle's Park, Country Club, and 
Gimghoul development, has been wanted for more 
than a year, and now that it has been made available 
by the Atwood and Nash organization it is passed on 
to our readers with the hope that they may have a 
more definite notion of the "lay of the land" than they 
have had in the immediate past. 

nan 

Two Recent Publications 

The Review is in receipt of two recent publications 
which have caused it to reach the unsatisfactory con- 
clusion that the University and the alunmi are omitting 
the doing of some things that would at the same time 
deepen the feelings of loyalty and sonship on the part 
of alumni and evidence a fine maternal concern for her 
sons on the part of the University. 

The two publications in question are "War Record : 
Davidson College, 1917-1918," and The Alumni Bulle- 
tin of The University of Virginia for October, 1923. 

The cover page of the Davidson war record is arrest- 
ing. It bears the college seal, a view of Chambers 
Hall, dear to all Davidsonians, and a helmeted machine 
gun squad facing the enemy across No Man's Land. 
Inside there is a Foreword telling of the 959 alumni 
and students who particijjated in the war, a poem 
"Our Dead," dedicated to the twenty sons of Davidson 
who made the supreme sacrifice, pictures of the fallen 
heroes, and biographical data concerning all the 959. 

The publication of this memorial, which of necessity 
knits the hearts of Davidson and her sons into a finer, 
closer spiritual union, reminds The Review that 



although the Armistice was signed more than five 
years ago the story of Carolina's service has gone 
unrecorded and the memorial park which was to have' 
been dedicated in honor of her student soldiers still 
remains unprovided.

Sonnets Dedicated to Her 

The Alumni Bulletin of the University of Virginia 
reminds us that since the establishment of The Re- 
view twelve years ago when the "Alumni Numbers" 
of the University of North Carolina Record were 
abandoned, many events in the life of the University 
have failed to receive extended notice such as they 
very properly deserve. The October number of the 
Btillctin illustrates the point we are making. It con- 
tains among other things, the address made by Homer 
Cummings at the Commencement of 1923; the Com- 
mencement and Convocation addresses of President 
Alderman ; an extended biographical sketch, with por- 
trait, of the late Raleigh Colston Minor, member of 
the law faculty of the University ; Sonnets dedicated 
to the University of Virginia by Helen Gray Cone ; 
halftone reproductions of the certificate awarded the 
University by the United States for participation in 
the Students Army Training Corps, and of the silver 
medal presented to Thomas Jefferson (recently given 
to the University) by Congress to commemorate the 
writing of the Declaration of Independence ; and a 
bibliography of the University, 1826-1921. 

With three notable exceptions. The Record has, since 
1912, included nothing other than the catalogues of the 
University and of its various schools, the official publi- 
cations of the Extension Division, and the President's 
Reports. Special numbers were issued commemorat- 
ing the death of President Graham and Dean Stacy 
and describing the two portraits of William Richard- 
son Davie. 

The Review, in making these observations, is blam- 
ing neither itself or the University. Obviously, The

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Review cannot print in their entirety commencement 
addresses or other long papers, however valuable they 
may be. Nor has the University had the editorial 
group or the money with which to provide the sort of 
record we have in mind ; but be the reasons what they 
may, we cannot escape the conviction that the failure 
to provide such a record is a serious one, not so much 
from the historical as the institutional, spiritual point 
of view. 

We have said before that the most impressive 
moment in the year is that moment when, in Memorial 
Hall, on October 12th, Alma Mater stands at attention 
and reads the roll of her fallen sons ; and we are 
doubly convinced that if ways and means were multi- 
plied by which the achievements of Alma Mater and 
her sons might be fittingly recorded more "sonnets," 
together with devoted hearts, would be wholly dedi- 
cated to her. 

n D n 

The Class Secretaries' Conference 

The conference of the secretaries of various classes 
of the University held in Chapel Hill, January 11, an 
account of which is to be found on another page, 
"brought out a number of opinions which we record, 
with comment, below. 

Secretary Grant, of the General .\lumni Association, 
opened the meeting with the suggestion that unless the 
class secretaries and the officers of local associations, 
together with the directors of the Association, could 
get the alumni machine to functioning more efficiently 
(that being the purpose of the conference) a new plan 
of procedure would probably have to be provided at 
Commencement for the carrying on of alumni work. 

With the introductory remarks out of the way, 
Judge Francis Winston observed that since the State 
had come liberally to the support of the University the 
necessity of dependence upon the alumni had largely 
passed, and that inasmuch as the trustees were re- 
sponsible for the conduct of the University, the appro- 
priate machinery for the handling of alumni affairs 
was through a regular University department under 
faculty control. 

Later in the day, when the various committees 
brought in their reports for discussion and adoption, 
Francis Bradshaw expressed the opinion that while the 
State had provided liberally for dormitories and class- 
room buildings, there were innumerable needs which it 
had not met and which could be met, even though the 
University was the State's University, only by the 
alumni. 

Quite a bit of time was consumed in the discussion 
of whether the representatives of all the reunion 
classes should have an opportunity to speak on Alumni 
Day. Samuel Gattis and Gerald Murphy thought they 
should. Others (we refrain from naming them, 
thereby protecting them from the wrath which should 
properly consume them) thought differently. W. S. 
Bernard found alumni groups more interested in the 
University than ever before and Charles Weil, of the 
finance committee of the board of directors of the 



General .Association, found them "interested," but 
rather "shy" when it came to digging up money for 
alumni purposes. 

These points of view having been expressed, the 
reports of the committees were adopted and the con- 
ference adjourned until Alumni Day. 

nan 

The Principle Stated 

The Review does not wish to comment extensively 
on the various opinions expressed. However, it is 
convinced that alumni work is more needed today than 
it ever was before, and that it can be carried on best 
not by the faculty or trustees, but by the alumni 
themselves. 

Prior to 1881, when the State made its first regular 
appropriation for the maintenance of the University, 
the institution depended entirely on alumni and public 
citizens for support. Since then, while the State has 
been gradually increasing its support and assuming the 
proper relation to the University, the alumni have 
responded splendidly to all of its emergency calls. 

But to save the University in an emergency is a very 
difl:'erent thing from standing by it daily, adding 
strength to it where it otherwise would be weak, and 
making of it a power for the full development of the 
lives of the students it trains and the citizens of the 
State it serves. And that, with the conservation and 
multiplication of happy relations among alumni them- 
selves, is, in The Review's way of thinking, the job 
the alumni ought to be doing. 

nan 

Its Application Follows 

It is not our ])urpose to catalogue the various Uni- 
versity objectives to which this principle might apply. 
But there are a number of things the alumni ought to 
be doing for themselves. The war record of Carolina 
men is one. That story ought to be recorded, and now. 
The publication of an alumni catalogue is another. 
Biographical data concerning every alumnus ought to 
be in printed form in a book in the hands of all the 
alumni. Class secretaries and secretaries of local asso- 
ciations ought to be in touch with their members in 
such a way as to bind them into a closer fellowship. 

And here on the campus there are a thousand things 
that alumni of other State Universities like Michigan, 
do bv the million dollars wort'n every year or so. The 
Student's Actix'ities Building is just being begun after 
five years of fund soHciting. Seeley, not an alumnus 
of the University, is the giver of the Seeley piano, 
while the pipe organ that should be in Memorial Hall 
still remains to be given. To svtrround the student 
Ijody with a campus beautiful which will refine their 
sense of the beautiful in all their subsequent lives is as 
yet a hope, rather than an undertaking well on the way 
to a successful conclusion. 

But this is not a catalogue. Nor is it a lamentation. 
On the contrary it is a suggestion ; and back of it is 
the hope that in the doing of what alumni can and 
should do for themselves and the student bodv and 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

Alma Mater in her advancement to the forefront of 
g-reat American Universities, there will be no faltering 
or turning aside. The University of North Carolina 
can and should be the unquestioned leader among the 
sisterhood of universities in the South, not merely in 
numbers of students or new buildings or the size of its 
indoor athletic field, but in all of those finer things that 
are interwoven in the texture of a really great institu- 
tion, and it cannot become that without the hourly help 
of the alumni, not as a submerged part of the faculty 
or the trustees, but as a big, purposeful fullgrown 
fourth part of the total University. 

nan 

To Be Seen Is Not SufBcient 

The most diverting discussion of the conference was 
that concerning the program of reunion classes on 
Alumni Day. To speak or not to speak, aye, there's 
the rub ! The conference hung up on that point for 
thirty minutes and the oratory was all that it should 
have been. 

While it was in full flow the question kept rising in 
our mind can't an alumnus or class of the University 
of North Carolina register that it is present on Alumni 
Day in any other way than by being heard in public ? 
Can the alumnus Caroliniensis express himself only in 
one way! namely in the highly satisfactory role of 
orator !

Mass Athletics Successfully Inaugurated 

To furnish exercise for more than 400 men for more 
than an average of two afternoons a week, at the very 
slight total cost of about $100 a month, would, appar- 
ently, mark a new record in the movement to extend 
the benefits of athletic exercise to the average student. 
This is the achievement of the Intra-mural Athletic 
Department in charge J. R. Purser, Jr., '24, during 
the quarter just passed, the first of its operation. 

The program of the department for the fall quarter 
was a cross-country race, with 100 cakes offered as 
prizes, and tag football, inter-dormitory league with a 
silver cup as trophy and a push ball inter-dormitory 
league with a silver cup for the winner. A report of 
the quarter's work recently published discloses the fact 
that more than 600 men took part in these various con- 
tests, more than 400 of whom were upper classmen. 
The zeal with which the games were played was indi- 
cated by the fact that some teams practiced for the tag 
football games as many as seventy times during the 
quarter, and sometimes the spirit of rivalry rose so 
high that referees decisions were contested and lengthy 
protests were entered to a committee organized for the 
])Urpose of adjudicating such disputes. 

Educational thinkers all over the country have been 
for the last few years turning their attention to the 
physical needs of the average student. Some have 
advocated the abolition of inter-collegiate competitions 



and the expenditure of all funds and energies on the 
student body as a whole, rather than a few specialized 
athletes. This, of course, represents the extreme of a 
movement of great promise. It is good to know that 
in this effort at genuine physical education for the 
mass of students, the University is taking a leading 
part. To have provided for athletic participation of 
half the student body at the very first step certainly 
gives promise for future success of this plan. 

With the forty tennis courts now under construc- 
tion, with a third athletic field nearly completed, and 
with an indoor field 100' .x 300' already in use, there is 
every indication that in the immediate future every 
student who desires to do so may have the benefits and 
pleasures of active participation in some form of ath- 
letic sport. To accomplish this end for a student body 
of more than two thousand requires an immense 
effort, yet no less could be done unless we are to 
narrow the definition of education to the mental pro- 
cesses alone. 

nan 

The Seeley Piano 

In one of the foregoing paragraphs we mentioned 
the Seeley piano. Here we wish to say a further word 
about it. By placing it in Memorial Hall, Mr. Seeley 
has unconsciously laid the entire University under 
tribute to him, a fact noticeable at daily chapel, at all 
special lectures and recitals, and on all occasions when 
the University comes together for one reason or 
another for the cultivation of its finer spiritual being. 
For five hundred students to sit hushed and attentive 
on a Sunday afternoon through a remarkable piano 
recital such as was given on the second Sunday in 
Janrary, or to be enrapt as they were on the night of 
the 17th by the violin of Emilie Rose Knox, means, 
to hark back to the ancient couplet, that something of 
the "savage" is subdued within them, and that in the 
coming day there will be in North Carolina a larger 
place for music and the arts that are truly fine — a 
thing the bringing about of which easily falls within 
the range of purposes of a great university.

The President's Report 

As The Review goes to press the board of trustees 
are meeting in Raleigh and "The President's Report," 
the December number of the University Record, is 
being received from the printers. As this publication 
contains not only the report of President Chase to the 
trustees, but of all the officers of the University, it is 
by far the most illuminating single publication the 
alumni can receive concerning the work of the Uni- 
versity, and for that reason alumni are notified that 
copies will be sent uiron request. In the next issue 
The Review will carry a summary of the develop- 
ments recorded for the year and of such recommenda- 
tions as may seem of most significance.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



ALUMNI THROUGHOUT STATE IN HOLIDAY MEETINGS 



Former, Present and Prospective Students Gather Around Festive Board 
and Discuss Live Topics Relating to Alma Mater 



Alumni associations throughout the 
State gathered at the festive board 
during the Christmas hoHdays. listened 
to praises of Ahiia Mater, swapped 
reminiscences and pledged anew their 
support to their University. All the 
reports are not in, but as many as 
were obtainable before going to press 
are given below in condensed form. 

Rockingham Alumni 

The Rockingham county alumni, 
meeting in Reidsville on December 29, 
established a loan fund for needy stu- 
dents entering college from that 
county. The banquet was held in the 
Hotel Belvidere. Added to the usual 
speech-making were short skits and 
greetings from delegates of other in- 
stitutions. 

The plan is to raise the student loan 
fund by $500 in subscriptions from 
alumni of the county and $500 from 
outside subscriptions. Twenty alumni 
have already subscribed $280 and 45 
are to be reported on. With this start 
the success of the venture seems as- 
sured. The $1,000 will be used as a 
revolving fund, the disposition to be 
in the hands of the executive com- 
mittee. The maximum loan to any 
student during a single j-ear is not to 
exceed $200. Proper security must be 
offered. 

Rev. W. J. Gordon, president of the 
association, presided over the meeting 
and struck the keynote of the evening 
in his address, "In the University's 
Service." Another speaker was Luther 
Hodges, who explained the students' 
loan fund. There were greetings 
from Miss Esther Baughn, of Leaks- 
ville, a student of N. C. C. W., and 
Miss Ruth Teachey, of the Reidsville 
high school faculty. 

Bob Gwynn Resigns 

Due to press of work, the resigna- 
tion of J. Minor Gwynn as secretary- 
treasurer was accepted, and Charles 
.Smith, of Leaksville, was elected. S. 
O. Bondurant, of Spray, was elected 
treasurer of the Students' Loan Fund. 
At the October meeting all the officers 
were re-elected, with the exception of 
J. P. Burke, second vice-president, 
who has moved from Reidsville. He 
was succeeded by Ira R. Humphries 
of Reidsville. Other officers are Rev. 



STUDENT LOAN FUNDS 
At their holiday meetings the 
Rockingham and Craven Alumni 
Associations started student loan 
funds which will be available for 
needy and worthy students from 
these two counties. Other associ- 
ations are planning similar funds. 



W. J. Gordon, of Spray, president; 
P. T. Haizlip, of Spray, 1st vice- 
president: U. Leland Stanford, of 
Stoneville, 3rd vice-president. The 
executive committee is composed of 
the above named officers and the fol- 
lowing others : P. H. Gwynn, Leaks- 
ville ; L. H. Hodges, Spray: W. R. 
Dalton, Reidsville ; J. Minor Gwynn, 
Reidsville. 



GASTON COUNTY ALUMNI 

Walter Murphy, of Salisbury, presi- 
dent of the General Alumni Associ- 
ation, was the principal speaker at the 
Christmas banquet of Gaston county 
alumni and students in Gastonia on 
December 31. Eighty were present. 
It was one of the best meetings ever 
held in Gaston. 

Otlier speakers included E. R. Ran- 
kin, the Rev. F. B. Rankin, F. M. 
Houser, president of the Gaston 
county club in tiie University : Paul 
Hood, another student, and Young 
McGinnis, Cherryville high school 
student. 

Dr. T. C. Quickel, president of the 
Gaston county association, presided. 
Decision was reached to hold an an- 
nual meeting on University Day, Oc- 
tober 12, in addition to the regular 



Kay Dixon Heads Group 

Mr. Murphy in his address said 
"the University is serving the people 
as never before. There are more stu- 
dents in the graduate department now 
than in every department when I was 
there," he continued. "In 1924 there 
will be 7,000 high school graduates in 
North Carolina. In 1912 there were 



only 500. I don't know the limits of 
the University in the future. Wis- 
consin has 16,000, Harvard 32,000, 
( 'oluml)ia 42,000. The possibilities are 
unlimited." 

New officers elected were Kay 
Dixon, president; Rev. F. B. Rankin, 
vice-president ; Tom Brawley, secre- 
tarv and treasurer. 



MECKLENBERG ALUMNI 

riiirty-two alumni, twenty-two Uni- 
versity students and eighteen high 
school students attended the Mecklen- 
l)erg county alumni banquet in the 
Charlotte Chamber of Commerce on 
January 1. J. J. Parker, president of 
the association, was toastmaster. 

Prof. W. S. Bernard, the principal 
speaker, traced the rapid growth of 
education in North Carolina- in recent 
years, told of the University's many 
problems and urged closer cooperation 
between the alumni and the institu- 
tion. 

President Parker talked about the 
influence of education on the life of 
the state. Judge Harding gave some 
interesting reminiscences regarding 
campus experiences. Henry Duls, a 
student in the University, told of con- 
ditions on the Hill, F. S. Wearn 
spoke for the Charlotte High School 
delegation. 



WAYNE COUNTY ALUMNI 

Dr. James F. Royster, Dean of the 
College of Liberal Arts, was the prin- 
cipal speaker at the holiday banquet 
of the Wayne county association in 
Goldsboro. He talked about the edu- 
cational process in the University in 
relation to the alumni. The speech 
was received with great enthusiasm. 

Another speaker was Wiley B. Fort, 
'11 as of '62, father of Mrs. R. A. 
Fetzer, who had some interesting sta- 
tistics regarding Carolina men. 

Resolutions were passed requesting 
the University authorities to sta.ge the 
Carolina- Wake Forest football game 
next fall in Goldsboro. 

New officers elected were Lionel 
Weil, president, to succeed Archie 
Dees, and S. D. Wootten, secretary, to 
succeed W. A. Royal.

Edwards, R. E. Price, Chas. Z. Flack, 
John W. Dalton, Dr. Chas. F. Gold 
and Miss Bertha McRorie, the latter 
a student in N. C. C. W. 

Among the questions discussed were 
the work and aim of the alumni asso- 
ciation, clean athletics, and the Gra- 
ham Memorial building. 

R. E. Price, of Rutherfordton, was 
re-elected president and John W. Dal- 
ton, of Forest City, secretary-treas- 
urer. Rutherford has 13 students in 
the Universitv tliis vear. 



CRAVEN COUNTY ALUMNI 

.-Mbert Coates, as>istant professor in 
the Law .School, was the principal 
speaker at the holiday bancjuet of the 
Craven county association in the 
Christ Church parish house in New 
Bern on December 28. 

"There need be no tear on the part 
of Carolina alumni that the old-time 
Carolina spirit is being dissipated," 
the speaker said. "There exists a .sig- 
nificant unity in the student body as 
evidenced by recent action taken with 
the vote of the entire student body." 
He was introduced by Nat Gooding. 
'19, citv editor of the Xnv Bcniian. 



G. A. Barden presided as toastmas- 
ter. Fifty persons were present, in- 
cluding alumni, high school students 
and other guests. 

Dr. J. F. Patterson, a jnominent 
alunmus, was elected to succeed Mr. 
Barden as head of the association, and 
decision was reached to establish a 
loan fund for the benefit of needy 
high school graduates. 

Sam W. Ferebee, Jr., was elected 
secretary-treasurer, succeeding Charles 
Ives, Jr., whose activity in preparation 
for the banquet was responsible in 
great measure for its success. Mr. 
Barden, the resigning president, had 
been head of the association for two 
years and did effective work. 

A committee, composed of Dr. Pat- 
terson, chairman, William Dunn, Jr.. 
and William B. Blades, was appointed 
to draft regulations governing the use 
of the student loan fund. This com- 
mittee will also select the student to 
be aided. The fund should be avail- 
able by next fall. 

Toastmaster Barden called for a 
number of short talks. Among those 
who responded were L. L Moore, Dr. 
N. M. Gibbs, member of the famous 
football team of '92 ; Rudolph Jack- 
son, who won his letter in football last 
fall, and Tom O. Moore. 



BUNCOMBE AND LENOIR 

There were also holiday meetings of 
a number of other associations, omitted 
of necessity solely because the reports 
of which have not been sent to the 
Central Office or Review. William B. 
Umstead, attorney, of Durham, ad- 
dressed the Lenoir alumni in Kinston. 
Ely J. Perry was toastmaster. There 
was a banquet in Asheville. Carl 
Hyatt is president of the Buncombe 
association and Kelly Hughes secre- 
tarv. 



DR. STEINER HONORED 

.\ signal honor has been conferred 
on the University .School of Public 
Welfare in the selection of Dr. Jesse 
F. Steiner of the School as president 
of the American Association of 
Schools of Social Work. The associ- 
ation met in Washington, D. C, dur- 
ing the holidays. It comprises twenty- 
one universities and colleges scattered 
throughout the country. 



The most enduring work of Walter 
Hines Page was that for social prog- 
ress in the South, says R. D. W. Con- 
nor. Kenan professor of history, in a 
feature article in the January number 
of the Journal of Social Forces. 



E. C. Branson, professor of Rural 
Social Economics, who has been 
studying rural conditions in Europe, 
is expected to return to Chapel Hill 
about the middle of Marcli. 



PRESIDENT CHASE DELIVERS 
ADDRESSES 

President Chase delivered several 
addresses off the campus last month. 
In Birmingham, Ala., he spoke before 
the president's and trustees' section of 
the Southern Agricultural Workers in 
session there, emphasizing as the great 
need of the South today tiie develop- 
ment of its own leaders. 

In Georgia he addressed the Atlanta 
alumni of the University and the stu- 
.dent body of Agnes Scott College. 

In Raleigh he was the principal 
speaker at a big meeting of the Cham- 
ber of Commerce on the occasion of 
the official opening of the new Sir 
Walter Raleigh Hotel. His address 
emphasized that North Carolina's re- 
markable growth at present is the re- 
sult of its well-balanced program in 
developing both human and material 
resources. 



CAROLINA GAMES TO BE 

ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES 

The faculty committee on atliletics, 
meeting early in January, adopted a 
resolution to the effect that in so far 
as practicable all athletic contests 
hereafter in which the University par- 
ticipates will be staged on college 
campuses. The principle reason for 
such action, the committee said, was 
to avoid what is considered the danger 
of commercialism creeping into col- 
lege athletics. 



Present at the annual meeting of the 
National Collegiate Athletic Associ- 
ation in Atlanta were A. W. Hobbs, 
chairman of the faculty committee on 
atliletics ; Chas. T. Woollen, graduate 
manager of athletics and Robert A. 
Fetzer, director of athletics. 



Profs. Howard W. Odum, Floyd 
Allport and Jesse F. Steiner read 
papers at meetings in Washington of 
the American .Sociological .Society and 
the American Statistical Association. 
Prof. Allport read a paper on "The 
Group Fallacy in Social Theory;" 
Prof. Steiner's paper discussed "The 
Utilization of Public Agencies in Field 
Work;" Professor Odum's paper was 
on "The Migration of the Negro 
Northward."

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



TWENTY-FIVE CLASS SECRETARIES MEET AND ACT 



Gather in Chapel Hill and Adopt Definite Plans for Making Effective 
the Class Groups — Reunion Program Altered 



Twenty-five secretaries of alumni 
classes of the University met in the 
Central Alumni Office in Chapel Hill 
on January 11 and formulated plans 
which, if put into effect, should do 
more than anything yet undertaken to 
hring- about full coordination in 
alumni work. 

This conference laid the foundation 
for the building of permanent class 
organizatins ; mapped out a program 
for Commencement, with special em- 
phasis on reunions, and adopted plans, 
looking toward the gathering of com- 
plete records for the Alumni Cata- 
logue, to be published right after Com- 
mencement. These plans are given in 
detail later in this article. 

Presiding over the meeting was 
Prof. W. S. Bernard, chairman of the 
executive committee of the Class Sec- 
retaries Bureau, under the auspices of 
which the meeting was held, jointly 
with the Central Alumni Office. The 
conference lasted all day and there 
was complete stock taking of, alumni 
activities. Secretary Grant said that 
from the standpoint of work done it 
was the most successful alumni con- 
ference yet held here. 

Better Support Needed 

One important question raised in 
the discussions will be decided at the 
business meeting of the association 
Commencement. It effects the whole 
future course of alumni affairs. It is 
simply this : Will the association con- 
tinue to be supported financially by the 
alumni, or, in lieu of such, will it be 
taken under the wings of the Univer- 
sity administration? 

Secretary Grant reported that the 
moral support of the alumni was ex- 
cellent but that he had experienced 
considerable difficulty in getting them 
to view themselves as members of a 
group to sit in council on matters vital 
to Alma Mater and even more diffi- 
culty in getting them to give financial 
support to the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation. 

"The issue is clearly drawn," Secre- 
tary Grant said. "Class officers and 
local association officers — in short, 
every duly elected officer in the alumni 
group, must get busy or else this effort 
to build an association, an effort begun 
in September, 1922, is doomed to fail- 
ure and the organization will go the 
way of its predecessors. 



CLASS SECRETARIES! 

At your meeting in Chapel Hill 
on January 11 you voluntarily 
pledged yourselves to send to the 
REVIEW regularly items about 
your members. This is nothing 
more than you were supposed to 
have done in the past, but the cold 
truth is that few of you did. 
This is due notice that our leni- 
ency is exhausted, and from now 
on we shall expect to hear from 
you at least once a month, whether 
you have one item or one hundred. 
You get credit — or maybe discredit 
— for the notes concerning your 
class. Therefore, do just this: 
your duty. — The Editors. 



"This work is too vital to the Uni- 
versity's life for the institution to be 
wilhng to abandon it. So, if the 
alumni themselves do not carry on — if 
they admit their inability to do so, 
then this work in some way, meagre 
though it may have to be, will be 
carried on by the University adminis- 
tration." 

Judge Winston Speaks 

Judge Francis D. Winston, 79, who 
presides over the class gatherings in 
Gerrard Hall on Alumni Day, ad- 
vanced the view that the association 
ought to be supported by the Univer- 
sity instead of the alumni. Francis F. 
Bradshaw, '16, Dean of Students, an- 
swering him, asserted that support by 
the University would not remove the 
necessity of alumni support. Alumni of 
other state institutions are always 
lending financial aid, said he, and he 
referred to $1,000,000 in gifts by 
alumni of the University of Michigan 
last year. 

Professor Bernard, formerly alumni 
secretary and long identified with 
alumni work, said he was convinced 
that there is nothing wrong with the 
alumni attitude. "For many years I 
have been travelling over the State 
and I can truthfully say that alumni 
loyalty and enthusiasm is ten times 
greater now than even five years ago," 
he declared. 

Other speakers, apparently ignoring 
the emphasis the association is placing 
on "continuous support," said that the 
alumni had never failed to come to 
Alma Mater's aid in an emergency. 



.Such was the view urged bv S. M. 
Gattis, '84, of Hillsboro, and C. L. 
Weill, '07, of Greensboro. Mr. Weill 
referred to the fact that during the 
educational campaign several years 
ago the first seven men approached by 
liis committee, six of them alumni, 
gave $500 each as their contribution. 

The Alumni Review 

Tlie matter of increasing subscrip- 
tions to The Alumni Review, official 
organ of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation, came in for a good deal of 
discussion. Dr. Louis R. Wilson, edi- 
tor of the Review, indicating what 
might be done, referred to the fact 
that Princeton classes of the last 30 
years had given blanket subscriptions 
for their alumni magazine covering 
the entire class. It was the sense of 
the meeting that the Review is giving 
the alumni what they want and that it 
is worth more than the price of sub- 
scription. The class secretaries voted 
unanimously to encourage its sale. 

Another matter that provoked much 
talking concerned the business meet- 
ing of the General Alumni Association 
in Gerrard Hall on Alumni Day of 
Commencement. It has been the cus- 
tom to follow up this meeting with a 
general gathering of the reunion 
classes, who mount the rostrum and 
let some of their members indulge in 
reminiscences. Several of the class 
secretaries thought this part of the 
program ou,ght to be shortened or 
carried over to the alumni luncheon 
in Swain Hall. Others pointed out 
the danger of "injured vanities" 
if tlie reunion classes were not per- 
mitted to go on the rostrum and have 
their say. The board of directors of 
the association think they have a 
happy solution for the problem. At 
their meeting in Raleigh, on January 
18, they decided to hold the business 
meeting of the Alumni Association in 
Memorial Hall from 9:30 to 12 o'clock 
in the morning and have the reunion 
program as usual in Gerrard Hall 
from 12 until 1 :30 p. m., to be fol- 
lowed by the alumni luncheon.

The following committees were ap- 
pointed to see that the plans adopted 
by the conference are put into effect:

TO ORGANIZE DRAMATIC CLUBS 

The 1)ureau of community drama of 
the Extension Division of the Univer- 
sity has announced the organization of 
"The Carolina Dramatic Association," 
the jjurpose of which will be to pro- 
mote throughout the state th? organ- 
ization of permanent dramatic clubs. 

Plans as outlined call for an associ- 
ation composed of several groups as 
follows: high school and other second- 
ary school dramatic clubs, college 
dramatic clubs, community dramatic 
clubs, church dramatic clubs, social 
and fraternal dramatic clubs, and chil- 
dren's dramatic clubs. 



Dr, James F, Royster, Dean of the 
College of Liberal Arts of the Univer- 
sity, was elected treasurer of the 
-American Dialect .Society, which met 
in connection with the Modern Lan- 
guage .Association in Ann Harbor, 
Mich., on December 28. 



PLANS FOR ACTION! 

In this and adjacent column 
there are presented in condensed 
form the plans adopted by the 
conference of Class Secretaries in 
session in Chapel Hill on January 
11. They are worthy of careful 
study. 



BUILDING PERMANENT 

CLASS ORGANIZATIONS 

1. Building of Permanent Class Or- 
Sanization. Officers : president, vice- 
president, and secretary who should also 
be treasurer. 

2. Complete biographical data concern- 
ing each member of the class — living and 
dead — should be on file in the Class Sec- 
retary's office. 

3. Regular letters sent by Class Sec- 
retary giving information, and creating 
class spirit and interest. These to go out 
at least every ninety days to supplement 
Alumni Review in keeping the infor- 
mation of each modernized. 

4. Invite correspondence which may 
become a part of a man's record, and can 
be used to inspirit class histories. 

5. A complete class history to be pub- 
lished as soon as possible, at least by the 
next reunion of the class. 

6. Regular transmission to the Central 
Office of information gathered concern- 
ing changes of address, deaths, marriages, 
advancements, etc. 

7. More frequent contributions to The 
Alumni Review through the use of col- 
lected material, interesting letters from 
classmates, and through persuasion o'' 
others to send their ideas and suggestions. 

8. The class secretary should encour- 
age every living member of the class to 
subscribe to The Alumni Review in 
order to keep the members more closely 
in touch with the work of the Associa- 
tion and the University. 

9. Providing a class treasury, and an- 
nual fees to cover all actual expenses of 
the secretary in carrying out the work 
for the group. 



COMPLETING RECORDS 

FOR ALUMNI CATALOG 

1. Central Office now has ready for 
inclusion in the Alumni Catalogue the 
data on 40 per cent of the living alumni. 
Balance have failed to respond to its re- 
quests. First energies of Class Secre- 
taries to be directed toward completing 
individual records so that the catalogue 
may be published immediately. Records 
to be gathered of those who have died. 

2. In order that this work may pro- 
ceed at once Central Office is to supply 
each Class Secretary a list of his class- 
mates according to matriculation cards in 
the Registrar's office, on which arc to be 
indicated : 



a. Best available addresses. 

b. Those who have already supplied 
the material. 

3. Secretaries are to enlist the cooper- 
ation of interested classmates and proceed 
at once to induce those classmates, who 
have not already done so. to return im- 
mediately questionnaire properly fdled 
out. 

4. All data gathered to be forwarded 
to Central Office. 

5. This work to be pushed to a hur- 
ried conclusion so that the catalogue may 
lie published following the coming Com- 
mencement. 

6. That arrangement of names in 
Catalogue be according to their Univer- 
sity classes, with proper class references. 



REUNIONS WILL EXTEND 

OVER FOUR-DAY PERIOD 

1. Regular classes to reunite are '54, 
•64. '84. '89, '94, '99, '04, '09, '14, '19, and 
'23. Dates are June 8th to 11th. 

Special Reunion for all alumni resid- 
ing outside the state is being arranged 
under the direction of a committee com- 
posed of R. P. Pell, J. W. Alexander, 
and E. S. Lindsay all of Spartanburg, 
S. C. 

2. Reunions are to extend over the 
four days of Commencement, rather than 
one day. The occasion cannot be made 
a complete success when visitors come 
only for a single day. 

3. Secretaries of classes holding re- 
unions are to meet prior to Commence- 
ment with the Commencement marshal 
and jointly arrange the alumni part of 
the program and entertainment. The 
Commencement marshal is to be in ac- 
tive charge of class festivities during 
reunions.

eral class meeting — preferably a dinner 
Tuesday. Increase in dining room facili- 
ties in Chapel Hill now make this possi- 
ble. 

5. Joint Reunion program to be in 
Gerrard Hall from 12:00 noon to 1:30 
p. m., Tuesday. (The Board of Direc- 
tors has decided to disassociate this from

Hall at 9:30 a. m. Tuesday.) 

6. Class stunts are to be encouraged 
for the Alumni Luncheon in Swain Hall,

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



BASKETBALL SEASON GETS ANOTHER GOOD START 



Quint Won Eight Consecutive Games in December and January 
Carmichael and Dodderer Swap Berths 



The Carolina basketball season of 
1924 got off to a good start and pres- 
ent indications are that the Southern 
champions of 1922 and South Atlantic 
winners of 1923 will again have much 
to do with deciding this year's laurels 
in the South. 

The quint began the season with the 
loss of only one man from last year's 
varsity, that one being Carl Mahler, 
of Wilmington, a most valuable guard. 
To date no games have been lost and 
it appears on paper that this year's 
(luint is stronger than either of its 
two much glorified predecessors. 

Captain Winton Green, forward, 
got a bad start, due to a lame shoul- 
der, and didn't show up well in the 
first games. In the encounter with 
Davidson, however, he staged a come- 
back and has been going good since.

.Tack Cobb, forward 



Cobb Newest Find 

Jack Cobb, Durham boy. who was 
captain of last year's freshmen (|uint, 
won his varsity spurs in the Mercer 
game and is probably the most sensa- 
tional player on the squad. Already 
he is challenging Cartwright Carmich- 
ael for the state's premier honors. He 
is a flash on the floor and a dead shot 
at the basket. He plays forward. 

"Monk" McDonald, veteran guard, 
seems to be playing even better than 
last season, which is saying a great 
deal. His work in the Davidson 
game, incidentally among his home 
folks, was especially brilliant. 

Cartwright Carmichael began the 
season at center but was shifted to 
guard in the Elon .game, thereby 
swapping places with Bill Dodderer, 
who ■ took over the pivot position. 
Carmichael has been suffering from a 
bad knee for soinetime and this ef- 
fected his jumping center. He is 
playing his usual beautiful floor 
game, however, dribbling and passing 
the ball as if it were second nature to 
him. 

Dodderer Surprises 

Dodderer is playing a defensive 
.game that has surprised and is doing 
credit to Carl Mahler's old berth. 

Bill Devin and Henry Lineberger, 
both good substitutes on last year's 
football team, are showing up well as 
substitute guards. At forward Jimmy 
Poole, a junior, and Yelverton and 
Johnson of last year's freshmen are 
doing well. 

The schedule for the remainder of 
tlie season is as follows : 
Jan. 31 — Trinity, here. 
Feb. 2— V. M. I., here. 
Feb. 4 — Catholic U., there. 




raptr.in Winton Grttii. iurward 

Feb. 5 — Univ. Maryland, there. 
Feb. 7 — Lynchburg, there. 
Feb. 8— W. & L., there. 
Feb. 13 — Open. 

Feb.. 1-1 — South Carolina, there. 
Feb. 16— W. & M., here. 
Feb. 18— State, here. 
Feb. 19 — Trinity, there. 
Feb. 21. — Wake Forest, here. 
Feb. 23 — State, there. 
Feb. 26— W. & L., here. 
March 1, 2, 3 — Southern Tourna- 
ment. 



As the Review goes to press, the 
Carolina wrestling team, accompanied 
by Coach A. A. Shapiro and Assist- 
ant Manager Dennis Madry, is on a 
tour of Virginia. The University of 
X'irginia was defeated in the first 
meet on January 29. Other teams that 
were to be met were V. M. I., Wash- 
ington and Lee and V. P. I.

NEW INDOOR SPORTS BUILDING IS COMPLETED 



Provides for Basketball and Baseball Courts and Track and 
Promotes Intra-Mural Sports 



Carolina now has an indoor sports 
building large enough for eight basket- 
ball courts, a track one-sixth of a mile 
long and a baseball court. The build- 
ing, which was completed early last 
month, will seat 4,000 persons com- 
fortably. 

Alumni who used to have to hang 
over the gallery rail or fight for a 
place on the sidelines when a basket- 
ball game was played in Bynum Gym- 
nasium will probably turn green with 
envy when they read this. 

This building does not take the place 
of a new gymnasium, long needed, but 
it makes possible a greater participa- 
tion in intra-mural athletics and af- 
fords a much needed basketball court 
for varsity games. 

Helps Intra-Mural Sports 

The structure is 300 feet in length 
and 100 feet wide. It has a frame- 
work of steel and its walls and cover- 
ings are of galvanized tin, with 
enough skylights to make artificial 
light unnecessary anytime during the 
day. It is just back of the varsity 
football field, on the other side of the 
new road that connects the Raleigh 
and Pittsboro routes, and is best 
reached by the new road. 

As yet no name has been given the 
building by University officials. In 
lieu of which the students are calling 



it tiie "Tin Can." It was christened 
with the Mercer-Carolina basketball 
game early in January. 



ONE-HALF STUDENTS 

ACTIVE IN SPORTS 

A total of 971, or appro.\imateIy 
one-half of the students in the Uni- 
versity, participated in some form of 
athletics during the fall quarter, ac- 
cording to a report to President Chase 
by Francis F. Bradshaw, Dean of Stu- 
dents, who cites this as proof that the 
system of intra-mural sports intro- 
duced last fall has proved a success. 

Tag football, which was played all 
over the campus during the fall, was 
the most popular, 467 taking part in 
this sport. There were 254 playing 
pushball and 250 out for track. 

The above figures are for varsity, 
intra-mural and freshman athletics. 
Taking part in intra-mural or dormi- 
tory athletics were 600. The figures 
do not include a large number of 
students taking prescribed exercise in 
the gymnasium. 

Dormitory Teams 

Dormitory football teams, in addi- 
tion to playing their scheduled games, 
practiced on an average of 17 times 
during the autumn, giving all partici- 
pants approximately two and one-half 
afternoons practice a week. 




Tiie report concludes that "these sta- 
tistice fully justify intra-mural and 
mass athletics, which are giving rise 
to a healthy form of dormitory ri- 
valry, the aim of which is to insure 
the participation of every student in 
some form of healthy exercise." 

The work was largely under the di- 
rection of John R. Purser, Jr., man- 
ager of the intra-mural athletics de- 
partment of Dean Bradshaw's office. 



Profs. D. D. Carroll, C. T. Mur- 
chison, W. J. Matherly and Thos. L. 
Kibler of the School of Commerce at- 
tended a meeting in Washington of 
the American Economic Association. 
In company with a hundred other 
economists they called on President 
Coolidge. 



Dr. Edwin Greenlaw went to Ann 
Arbor, Mich., in January to attend a 
meeting of the Association of Teach- 
ers of Modern Languages. He is 
chairman of the research committee. 



Chester D. Snell, director of the 
University Extension Division, at- 
tended the meeting in Pinehurst of the

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



BOARD OF DIRECTORS 

MAP OUT CONFERENCES 

The Board of Directors of the Gen- 
eral Alumni Association held its sec- 
ond meeting of the year in Raleigh on 
January 18th. Those present were 
\\'alter Murphy, president ; C. L. Weill, 
vice-president: Leslie Weill, Miss 
Mary Henderson, and O. J. Coffin, di- 
rectors : John W. Umstead of the Fi- 
nance Committee and Daniel L. Grant, 
Alumni Secretary. 

Speaking for the Finance Commit- 
tee, C. L. Weill reported that the As- 
sociation's indebtedness was a little 
more than $1,000 on January 1st and 
that a very minimum of $5,000 addi- 
tional would have to be raised by con- 
tributions in order to complete this 
year's work, making a total of $6,000. 
After much discussion the Board de- 
cided to ask each local club to raise a 
portion of the total, apportioned ac- 
cording to the size of the group. 

The tentative distribution of this 
work as mapped calls for each of the 
following towns to contribute a mini- 
mum of $500: Raleigh, Winston- 
Salem, Greensboro, Asheville and 
Charlotte; a minimum of $300 from 
Durham, Gastonia, Wilmington, High 
Point, New Bern, Rocky .Mount, 
Goldsboro and Fayetteville : and SlOO 
each from Wadesboro, .Shelby, Marion, 
Lexington, Concord, Lenoir, Hickory, 
Wilkesboro, Mt. Airy, Leaksville, 
Spray, Waynesville, Albemarle, Kin- 
ston, Tarboro, Wilson, Smithfield, 
Elizabeth City, Washington. Lumber- 
ton, Rockingham, Laurinburg, San- 
ford, Dunn, Burlington, Reidsville, 
Henderson, Oxford and Monroe. Spe- 
cial arrangements to bring the matter 
before the interested alumni outside 
these points are to be worked out. 

Alumni Conferences 
The Finance Committee report fur- 
ther revealed that the first twelve 
months of operation of the Central 
Office cost the alumni $4,500 and that 
this was contributed by 200 alumni — 
an average of $22.50. This in the 
face of the fact that more than 2,000 
were asked to contribute in small 
amounts. The lax interest in an 
alumni association, and the fact the 
few seem willing to shoulder the re- 
sponsibility either in work or money, 
was attributed as the cause. 

Arrangements were made for the 
election of officers for the coming 
year. There are to be elected on di- 
rect ballot a president, two vice-presi- 
dents, and three members of the Board 
of Directors. The board members 
hold office three years. 



Arrangements were made to con- 
duct the annual business meeting of 
the Alumni Association apart from 
the reunion program. The business 
meeting is to be conducted by the per- 
manent class officers and local club 
officers or their duly elected delegates. 
Preliminary to this, there is to be this 
spring a series of regional conferences 
of local club officers. Plans call for 
eight or ten of these conferences to 
be conducted under the direction of 
the members of the Board of Direc- 
tors. 

The first of these conferences are 
to be held in Asheville, Charlotte, El- 
kin, Salisbury, Rockingham, Greens- 
boro, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Eliza- 
beth City, New Bern and Wilming- 
ton. 

OLD UNIVERSITY INN PASSES 

NEW CAROLINA INN GOES UP 

The last portion of the old Univer- 
sity Inn is being torn down to make 
way for the Graham Memorial Build- 
ing, soon to go up. 

The passing of the old Inn recalls a 
rich store of tradition and legend. It 
was there that President James K. 
Polk was received when he revisited 
his Alma Mater. Its broken-down as- 
pect has made it the butt of ridicule 
these last few years, but only a quar- 
ter of a century ago it \\as regarded 
as one of the most .select habitations 
in the village. 

When Julian Carr, Jr., and Jolm 
Carr and Frank Rogers, popular stu- 
dents in the University, installed them- 
selves in 1895, or thereabouts, at the 
north end of the second floor, their 
suite was pointed to as the acme of 
undergraduate luxury. 

W. G. Peckham, a New York law- 
yer, who came here on a visit, bought 
a great deal of Chapel Hill real es- 
tate, and one of his first purchases was 
the celebrated John Watson hotel. He 
tore it down, all except the part on the 
main street that had been put up to 
receive President Polk, and built the 
Inn in its place. 

Used to be Hotel 

Walter Pickard conducted it as a 
hotel for many years. It was sold by 
the New Yorker to H. H. W'illiams 
and George Stephens, and they in 
turn sold it to the University. Used 
as a dormitory, as time passed it de- 
teriorated and came to be less desira- 
ble as a place to live. Several years 
ago a portion of it burned to the 
ground. 

There is marked contrast between 
this edifice and The Carolina Inn now 



being put up by John Sprunt Hill at 
the west gate, the exterior of which is 
taking its final shape and which should 
be completed this spring. 

The contrast between the old edifice 
and the new is the contrast between 
the old and new Chapel Hill. The 
Carolina Inn, of colonial design p.nd 
with a portico modeled after the one 
at Mount Vernon, is to be modern in 
all respects. The plans call for rooms 
for a hundred guests. There wUl be 
an elevator, ballroom, a spacious lobby, 
and the most improved restaurant serv- 
ice. The place is to be run as a club 
under the direction of University 
alunmi and other friends of the insti- 
tution. Mr. Hill's present intention is 
to complete it in time for a formal 
opening next Commencement. 



PAY TRIBUTE TO LATE 
L. P. McGEHEE 

Resolutions memorializing Lucius 
Pold McGehee were passed recently 
by the University faculty. They give 
high praise to the late dean of the 
Law School. They are signed by a 
faculty committee composed of Profs. 
A. C. Mcintosh, W. deB. MacNider, 
and J. M. Booker, and say in part : 

"A mind like Dean McGehee's is 
a rare occurrance in the history of any 
institution of learning. Its faculties 
were of exceptional native vigor, and 
they had been splendidly and evenly 
developed. They were supported al- 
most to the last by an unfaltering 
memory. 

"His unusual intellect possessed 
certain characteristics that peculiar- 
ly fitted him for teaching in a uni- 
versity. It possessed fine contempt 
for superficiality: the fecundating 
power of a lively imagination; a 
strong historic bent, and finally liberal 
tastes liberally educated. 

"So it was due to no lack of Dean 
McGehee's if the generations that went 
out from him failed to know that a 
shoddy workman was a shoddy man ; 
to think law as well as to learn it; to 
see in the law not only a means of 
livelihood but a human institution; to 
believe, according to the ancient tradi- 
tion of the south, that theirs was a 
profession for a scholar and a gentle- 
man. 

"The fruits of student contact with 
Dean McGehee will ripen while he 
rests. They cannot be estimated; they 
belong to the priceless imponderables 
of the university's service to the state, 
and this commonwealth will realize 
upon them for decades to come."

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT 



Gifts to the Library 

The University Library has recently 
received three gifts which add distinc- 
tion to the collection of material relat- 
ing to North Carolina and the South. 
The first in order of receipt is that 
from the Indiannapolis Public Library 
of sixty-three volumes of bound news- 
papers covering the period 1876-1878. 
Inasmuch as this was the period in 
which the South was emancipating 
itself from the evils of Reconstruction, 
the addition of the papers is particu- 
larly important historically. The 
seventeen papers making up the collec- 
tion are: the Baltimore American and 
Commercial Advertiser, the Boston 
Daily Advertiser, the Boston Post, the 
Chicago Times, the Cincinnati En- 
quirer, the Louisville Courier-Journal, 
the Pittsburg Daily Post, the Detroit 
Free Press, the Boston Evening Ga- 
zette, the New York Evening Post, 
the Montreal Gazette, the Light of 
Truth, the Charleston Nezvs and 
Courier, the St. Louis Republican, the 
Springfield Republican, the Toledo 
Morning Commercial, and the New 
York World. 

The second is that of the autograph 
album of Willim H. Maverick, of San 
Antonio, Texas, of the Class of 1869, 
who died last December. It is pre- 
sented by his son, William E. Maver- 
ick, and it contains the signature of 
his father's classmates and the pro- 
fessors of the University when the old- 
line faculty was succeeded by the Re- 
construction incumbents in 1868-69. 

The third gift is a framed steel en- 
graving of the late Stephen B. Weeks, 
'86, presented by Mangum Weeks, '16, 
and Charles L. Van Noppen, '92. It is 
a stipple-steel engraving made by E. 
G. Williams from the portrait of Dr. 
Weeks now in the Hall of History in 
Raleigh and painted by Paul E. Men- 
zel. The engraving is beautifully 
framed and is signed by both the 
artists. 



History of Williamsburg, S. C. 

William Willis Boddie. '97, Law 
'03, is the author of tlie History of 
Williamsburg, (S. C.) concerning 
which the Charleston News and 
Courier of December 2 had in the 
course of a long and commendatory 
review, the following to say : 

From time to time during the past sev- 
eral years the Kingstree County Record 
has printed sketches of Williamsburg 
county from the pen of William Willis 
Boddie. These sketches attracted more 



than local attention. They were uni- 
formly readable. They displayed a gift 
for historical narrative. Copied by TItc 
Sunday Ncivs and other newspapers, they 
were widely read, and the hope was fre- 
quently expressed that Mr. Boddie would 
expand his newspaper pieces into a his- 
tory of Williamsburg county. This he 
has now done and the book which has re- 
sulted fulfills and more than fulfills the 
promise which the earlier sketches gave. 



that as it may, Mr. Klaw is to be felici- 
tated upon his astuteness — or his luck — 
in picking a piece which is meeting with 
such hearty and heartening approval from 
all hands. 



Hell-Bent fer Heaven 

Harvey Hatcher Hughes, '07, lec- 
turer in play-writing at Columbia Uni- 
versity and playwright, is the author 
of a new play of the title indicated 
above which has recently been placed 
on the stage in New York City by 
Marc Klaw. Mildred Harrington, 
writing for the Greensboro Nczvs of 
January 12th, speaks of the play in 
part as follows : 

The theater-wise claim that it is the 
reaction of the second-night audience 
which makes or breaks a play. Granting 
that the dictum is true and that it may be 
stretched to include the reaction of second 
matinee audiences, then Hatcher Hughes, 
Tar Heel playwright, and Marc Klaw, 
New York producer, have nothing to 
fear for the fate of "Hell-Bent fer 
Heaven," the high-spirited drama of the 
Carolina mountains which hung out its 
sign on Broadway a week ago j'esterday. 

If I speak with conviction it is because 
on the afternoon of the second perform- 
ance, I was one of a wriggling human 
queue which doubled twice across the 
fairly capacious lobby of the Klaw thea- 
ter bent upon getting tickets before the 
S. R. O. should be shoved up on the 
bulletin board. A little later, I was one 
of a packed house which smiled and 
chuckled and applauded uproariously dur- 
ing the first act, and sat tensely forward 
upon the edge of its collective seat dur- 
ing the second and third acts wondering 
how on earth the tangle could be 
straightened out. 

Apropos of the immediate and decided 
success of "Hell-Bent fer Heaven," the 
dignified Mr. Klaw might be forgiven 
for cutting a pigeon wing or so on top 
of the august managerial desk when he 
saw the initial reviews of his latest offer- 
ing in Saturday's papers. John Corbin's 
estimate, recorded in the Times, is a 
pretty fair sample of the comment of the 
press : "A play of the first order . . . 
Novel and interesting. . . . Warmly 
human and richly humorous." About the 
most pessimistic criticism to date is the 
expressed fear of one reviewer that the 
play would prove too good to attract the 
public. Box office receipts, however, sug- 
gest that the much-maligned public is 
frequently more appreciative of the real 
thing than it gets credit for being. Be 



Not a Bottle for Babes 

From the Atlanta Journal we clip 
the following editorial in commenda- 
tion of The Journal of Social Forces, 
one of the notable group of journals 
published by the University of North 
Carolina Press. 

Amid the swirl of pamphlets, poems, 
and propaganda with which every morn- 
ing's mail bestrews our nook of news- 
paperdom "thick as autumnal leaves in 
Vallambrosa," there came today the Janu- 
ary 1924, number of the Journal of Social 
Forces, a Southern magazine of national, 
indeed international reach, published bi- 
monthly by the University of North 
Carolina. A unique arrival, it is — un- 
locked for, refreshing, significant. Grant 
that its name and subtitle are rather 
formidable to the unacademic mind — "A 
Medium of Social Study and Interpreta- 
tion." (We still cherish hopes that there 
may be a return some day to the fashion 
of the time -when philosophers called 
their creations by such inviting terms as 
"The Leviathan," "The New Atlantis," 
or "The Drinking Together.") Howbeit, 
the Journal of Social Forces has at least 
no 'ism or 'ology in its name, and no 
frown of pedantry in its soul. 

The magazine is not a bottle for babes. 
Neither is it a hobby-horse for high- 
brows. But it is shiningly to the credit 
of North Carolina, and of immense 
potential service to all the South. 



Alumni Organization 

The mere fact that more than 25 
class secretaries came to the meeting 
held here a few days ago, to discuss 
alumni affairs, is proof that the work 
of perfecting the organization of Uni- 
versity alumni is proceeding well. 
Secretary Grant's efforts, begun a 
year and a half ago and pursued ener- 
getically ever since, are showing defi- 
nite results in closer-knit local alumni 
groups as well as in more active class 
organizations. One of his most difficult 
tasks has been the gathering of com- 
plete data for the Alumni Catalogue, 
scheduled for publication next sum- 
mer. Every alumnus should do his 
utmost to make this volume a success, 
and the best thing he can do to that 
end is to send in to Mr. Grant infor- 
mation about himself and about all 
other alumni of his acquaintance who, 
for one reason or another, are "lost" 
to the secretary's office here. — Chapel 
Hill Weekly.

HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL— 1815 



The following letter from Joseph 
Caldwell, first president of t!ie Uni- 
versity, written on January 5, 1815, to 
Rev. William Neill, of Albany, N. Y., 
gives a picture of University and 
North Carolina life which The Re- 
view presents to the alumni in substi- 
tution for the regular monthly "Seen 
and Heard around the Well." The 
original letter from which this copy 
was made was recently purcliased by 
the University Library and added to 
the North Carolina Collection. — Edi- 
tors. 

The University in 1815 

I received your letter at the proper 
time after its date, and must now apolo- 
gize for not answering sooner. It ar- 
rived at the time of our public examina- 
tion which was on the first of December. 
As soon as the business of the session 
was over, I was compelled to go to Ral- 
eigh without delay to attend to some 
business of the bible society, which was 
to meet in two or three days afterwards. 
A vacation of a month succeeded, during 
which all regular business was suspended 
with me, except the preaching of the 
gospel on the sabbath. 

Reports Many Disorders 

The explanations I shall give on the 
subjects of your inquiries will be made 
as much as possible of facts. The col- 
lege here has subsisted since the year 
1794. I came to it in the year 1796. 
which was the time when degrees began 
to be conferred. Since that date there 
have been disorders of an open and ag- 
gravated nature on four different oc- 
casions. The last time was four years 
ago, when mischief was done by combi- 
nation, with the persuasion in the minds 
of the perpetrators, that the number 
would operate with the Faculty as a 
reason for declining to punish. Impelled 
by the emergency, and by the hope of 
breaking up this ground on which inex- 
perience and shortsightedness has made 
them calculate, a sentence of suspension 
was firmly pronounced and perseveringly 
carried into effect against 37 students. 
From that time the spirit of subordina- 
tion has been confessed and uniform. It 
has been the fixed principle of the Faculty 
to maintain in as great perfection as pos- 
sible the discipline and scholarship of 
the best northern colleges. We hold that 
at no college south of New Jersey are 
the government and morals in a practical 
view, to be compared with what are sup- 
ported at the University of North Caro- 
lina. I state this, having present to my 
mind the publicity and conspicuousness of 
the subject, and with a wish to invite in- 
quiry, without distrust of the result, pro- 
vided it be derived from the dispassionate 
and informed. 

The Faculty consists at present of two 
professors and two tutors besides the 
president. The number will probably be 



soon increased with another professor be- 
fore long, for the Trustees are intent on 
success, and have ample funds. The 
members of the Faculty are well united, 
and well disposed, aware of the necessity 
of strict examinations, punctual attention 
to the classes, a steadfast adherence to 
the laws, and conscientious and ex- 
emplary attention to scriptural religio'n 
and morality. 

Library Had Only 1000 Books 

The funds of the institution have been 
hitherto directed on the erection of build- 
ings. The library and apparatus there- 
fore have not been greatly enlarged. We 
have not perhaps more than a thousand 
volumes, but these are mostly selected 
for their immediate usefulness, and with 
a view to divinity. There are two socie- 
ties which have a thousand volumes 
apiece, many of which, though you might 
not suspect it, are religious books of the 
best sort. The Faculty have at their dis- 
posal $160 a year for the purchase of 
such books as they choose. But it is 
probable the time is not far oft" when the 
Trustees will make an apprporiation of 
money for enlarging the library to three 
or four thousand volumes. 

Question of Religion 

The number of communicants in this 
place is about 20, three of whom are 
members of the Faculty, one a student 
not belonging to the college, two students 
of the college and the rest of the vicinity. 
The professor of languages we hope and 
believe is as truly pious as any of our 
professors of religion, but his distrust of 
himself has prevented him from com- 
muning. I believe I shall be correct in 
stating that the people of this vicinity 
are generally well informed on religious 
subjects, and predisposed to attend pub- 
lic worship. Their advantages have never 
been such as are commonly enjoyed in 
the northern states, their habits and 
manners are not so correct, and. by many 
the sabbath is not well observed. It is 
apprehended in the northern country that 
the people of the south are hostile to 
religion. I believe that this was formerly 
true, but there has been a remarkable 
change within a few years. In our village 
and the neighboring country, but espe- 
cially among ourselves, no open violations 
of the sabbath are customary, nor would 
they be permitted, except that you will 
sometimes see a wagon or a traveller 
passing through. In this state our church 
has a synod called the Synod of North 
Carolina, composed of the three presby- 
teries of Orange, Fayetteville, and Con- 
cord. The number of our ministers, the 
congregations, and a general view of the 
Presbyterian church within the bounds of 
this synod, are presented in the minutes 
of the General Assembly of the last year, 
to which I would refer you. Hills- 
borough is our county town, and is 12 



miles from this place. The inhabitants 
of that town are building themselves a 
brick meeting house, the old one which 
was of wood, having gone to decay. 
There is a congregation about 7 miles 
from us, to which Doctor Chapman 
preaches once a month in its own meeting 
house. 

Grew Up With University 

I have now lived in this place 19 years ; 
am a native of New Jersey; was edu- 
cated at Princeton where 1 took a degree 
as you will see by the catalogue, and 
where I studied divinity, and received 
license. I came to N. Carolina at the 
age of twenty-three. I was then young; 
the college was beginning here : men of 
our profession, fitted to act as superin- 
tendents, were not to be had in this State. 
I consented to take charge of the institu- 
tion, while it was rearing for some years, 
but was at length indulged by the Trus- 
tees with the appointment of another per- 
son to act as President, and I have since 
continued as professor of mathematics. 
Having grown up thus far with the insti- 
tion I shall probably die in its service. 

Healthy Site 

The sentiments commonly entertained 
of the climate of N. Carolina by the 
people of the north are not applicable to 
this part of it. They are true of the 
lower part of the State, that part which 
lies between Raleigh and the sea. In our 
lower country I would not consent to 
live, if the whole were offered as an 
inducement. The site of the University 
is chosen for its healthiness. In travelling 
from the sea to this place you change the 
temperature much faster than by going 
northward the same distance. From the 
sea to the western limit is probably 450 
miles. We live about the middle of this 
distance. One hundred miles remove us 
sufficiently from the influence of the 
marshes and swamps that relax the 
bodies and minds of those who have not 
been inured by time to their effects. The 
winters here are generally mild, but often 
cold and sometimes severe. 

There is undoubtedly opening a scence 
of usefulness. If any where I hope it is 
here that an invasion has been effected 
into the region south of Virginia, bring- 
ing reformation into the manners, cus- 
toms, and principles of society. The 
progress of improvement is like that of 
an army, it must have its pioneers. But 
these must be followed up by a force, or 
their labour is lost. We who have yet 
acted, have been pioneers ; but we can 
promise you, and in making this promise, 
I anticipate the time when your presence 
may charge me if it be not true, the road 
is now opened for others to advance with 
safety and success. 

But I will push this long letter no 
further at present. Be as good as to let 
me hear from you soon.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



WITH THE ALUMNI HERE AND THERE 



F. B. Drane In Alaska 

The Tar Heel archdeacon of the Epis- 
copal church in Alaska is a jack of all 
trades. Holding a high office in the 
clergy in the northwestern territory, 
where shepherdless flocks are scattered 
hundreds of miles apart, means many 
weary journeys and hardships for the 
Rev. Frederick Drane, '12. He went to 
the vicinity of the Arctic circle from the 
diocese of east Carolina. Mr. Drane's 
latest report to his people back home 
tells of last summer's activities. 

Everywhere he was received with gen- 
erous hospitality. At Circle, far north, 
the entire population attended a service. 
At one place he halted to save a sick 
man's life. This little affair required a 
200-mile trip to another point with the 
patient by boat. 

He reports all well along the Yukon. 
The mosquitoes draw up battle array dur- 
ing the summer, and in the winter the 
thermometers register in the sixties be- 
low zero. During the past summer as 
Archdeacon of the Episcopal Missions on 
the Yukon, he covered some 2500 miles 
by boat. His itinerary for this winter 
calls for some 1900 miles of sledding 
with dog team. He has six first class 
dogs capable of 8 miles per hour going 
light on a good trail, and five miles per 
hour loaded and traveling by the day. 

He has been archdeacon of the Yukon 
since 1920. Ho is a native of Rdenton. 

Judge Winston Accepts 

Judge Francis D. Winston of Bertie, 
'79, accepts the challenge issued by C. G. 
Foust, '88, of Dallas, Tex., who in a 
letter in the December number of the 
Review says that, although he is 60 years 
old, "I am the youngest man I know of 
that age." 

Judge Winston, who is 66. writes that 
if Foust "will meet me on Saturday be- 
fore Commencement of '24 and stay on 
the Hill until after the dances and ac- 
company me around I will disprove his 
theory." 

Graham Succeeds Father 

Governor Morrison has appointed Wil- 
liam Alexander Graham, Jr., '91, to fill 
the unexpired term of his father as Com- 
missioner of Agriculture. In making the 
appointment the Governor said he con- 
sidered Mr. Graham eminently fitted in 
view of the fact he had long been asso- 
ciated with his father in the work of 
the department and was responsible for 
many of its activities. 

After leaving the University in 1898, 
Mr. Graham farmed for a while and was 
a traveling representative for several 
years. He has been delegate from Lin- 
coln county to every state democratic 
convention since casting his first vote. 
He was state senator in the legislature 



of 1923. He has been very active in 
farmer movements and politics in Lincoln 
county. 




Lawrence S. Holt, '04, prominent cotton 
manufacturer of Burlington, whose class re- 
unites in June. 



For the Class of '13 

A. I^. M. Wiggins, vice-president of 
the Trust Company of South Carolina, 
of Hartsville, and secretary of the Pee 
Dee Alumni Association, has received 
from Walter Stokes, Jr., life insurance 
agent, of Nashville, Tenn., the following 
letter : 

Please say for me to the members of 
the class of '13 that I had planned to be 
present for our tenth reunion and my 
plans were unexpectedly broken into. 

So much has happened since 1913 and 
so varied and interesting must have been 
the experiences of all of us that I should 
like to sit again under the Davie poplar 
and listen to W. G. Harry spin some 
wild yarn, Sam Bivens read a poem, or 
hear you yourself recount some intricate 
manipulation in high finance. 

For myself, I should have very little 
to tell. In business I suppose I have ac- 
complished enough to be considered 
fairly successful. In the war, I was a 
captain in the 77th Field Artillery of 
the 4th Regular Division and was for a 
time, before going overseas, stationed 
with that division in Charlotte. While 
there my North Carolina friends made 
life most happy for me and Mrs. Walter 
Stokes, Jr., who had been guilty of 
faulty enough judgment to have been 
married to me two years before. 

Wills Buys a Newspaper 

William Henry Wills, '91, who has 
been in newspaper work since going to 
New York in 1892, recently bought the 
Rye Courier, Rye, N. Y., one of the old- 



est and best known papers in Westchester 
County, N. Y., and in one of the wealthi- 
est suburban towns, 24 miles from Nev/ 
York City. He has taken as a partner 
W. Bob Holland, native North Caro- 
linian of Goldsboro, who some twenty 
odd years ago ran a daily paper in Dur- 
ham and who has since been on the 
staffs of the Evening Mail, World, and 
Sun. all of New York, and the St. Louis 
Post Dlspatcli. 

Mr. Wills started in on the Yonkers 
Herald when he went to New York, and 
after a short time got a reportorial 
job on the old Nezv York Sun, when 
Charles A. Dana was its boss. In 1900 
he went into the trade paper business in 
which he remained up to his present ven- 
ture, barring five years in Chicago. 

He is a brother of George S. Wills, 
'88. of Baltimore, professor in Western 
Maryland College, Westminister, Md., J. 
Norman Richard' T., and Edward S. 
Wills, prominent business men of 
Greensboro, where the family has lived 
since 1886. 

H. C. Heffner in Arizona 

Hubert C. Heffner, '21, now a member 
of the faculty of the University of Ari- 
zona, where he is introducing folk play- 
making along the lines followed by the 
Playmakers in North Carolina, writes 
the Review as follows : 

We have a Little Theatre organization 
here, and a theatre building, the stage of 
which we use for the stage of our out- 
door theatre also. 

Tucsan is truly a land of sunshine. 
Rents are high in this resort to\vn but 
we have secured a very pretty little 
Spanish style stucco home at just about 
half the price that we would have to pay 
in Chapel Hill. The doors of this house 
always open to Carolina men. 

I have a wire fence running around my 
back lot. In one half of it I have eleven 
chickens that work overtime without 
extra pay. In the other half I planted a 
garden last Sunday and when I watered 
it on Wednesday I noticed my radishes 
were up. Our four seasons here are 
three springs and one summer. If you 
plant a watermelon vine here you have to 
buy a Ford to keep up with the growing 
vine and to gather in the melons. 

Bob, a St. Bernard shepherd, the best 
one of my nine dogs, died just before 
we left Wyoming. You see, it was like 
this, I had to have an operation for 
appendicitis. That did not bother me at 
all, but Bob suffered such acute sympa- 
thetic pains that he "passed away." 

Now, Mr. Editor, print this last state- 
ment if you print nothing else, and kind 
friends will moan your name even in the 
torments of — Math. 1. A reward of 
$1000 will be given to anyone who can 
furnish information as to the where- 
abouts of Paul E. Green.

ney of Marion, has been appointed by 
Governor Morrison to fill out the unex- 
pired term of James M. Carson, former 
solicitor of the 18th. Judicial District,

endorsement of Yancey, McDowell and 
Burke county bars. He is a member of 
the law firm of Pless, Winbourn and 
Pless of Marion with a law practice, 
both criminal and civil, that extends into 
every county of the 18th. District, made

Florida Group on Job 

William A. Schell, secretary of the 
Florida Alumni Association, writes : 

Nothing running around the house, not 
even a fence, but — 

Why don't you say something by way 
of encouragement to Daniel L. Grant in 
your columns. 

We are trying to get lined up in 
Florida. I have devoted at least, on an 
average, three to four hours per week to 
association work during the past year as 
secretary of the Florida association and 
am willing to continue so to do. 

Because Mr. Grant sets an enthusiastic 
and prespiring example. I know you ap- 
preciate him, but encouragement 'dc 
help'." 

A Line From Steadman 

J. M. Steadman, Jr., M.A., '14, instruc- 
'ir in English in the University from 
1916-19, now Professor of English, Em- 
ory University, Atlanta, Ga., writes : 

A visit to the campus during the sum- 
mer of 1922 showed almost incredible ex- 
pansion of the University since I left 
there in 1919 ; and each number of the 
Alumni Review records still further 
improvements. 

I am watching with great pleasure the 
entente cnrdiale between Emory and 
North Carolina. Emory has sent to you 



McFadden. Millican, Green. Sanders. 
You have let us have John McFadden 
figain. He is doing great work here in 
psychology. 




T. \V. Pless, Jr., '17, lawyer, of Maiiun, 
recently appointed solicitor of the 18th. Judicual 
District. 

W. W. Rankin is at Agnes Scott Col- 
Jege just two miles away, and whenever 
we get together— Well, you know what 
happens when two Carolina men get to- 
gether. There is just one topic of con- 
versation. 

News From Far Away China 

On a Chinese Compartment Boat 
Near Kiangyin, China 
November 7, 1923. 

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

I wish I had you along, to make notes, 
according to your own liking, on this re- 
markable craft which is being towed by 
a Chinese steam launch over an inland 
canal, at the rate of something like five 
miles to the hour ! Did you know there 
was a means of transportation in the 
world as slow as that, today? After the 
strenuous life of a many-sided mission 
station — where we have two high schools, 
a hospital, a Bible school, in addition to 
a steadily developing evangelistic work — 
it is a decided change to embark on an 
expedition of this kind. 

George Worth and I, two loyal sons of 
U. N. C, are working together at a city 
called Kiangyin, about 100 miles from 
Shanghai. He is a doctor and I am a 
preacher. For the last 26 years, we have 
been trying to transmute into worth- 
while reality a dream that we had on the 
campus at Chapel Hill. It has been a 
happy life — with not a few thrills — and 
we are still glad we came to China. This 
country needs help sorely. She has a 
wonderful people who will, some day, 
make no small stir in the family of na- 



tions, if this hoary old sphere continues 
to roll long enough. China is disposed 
to take her own time, but she has marvel- 
lous lasting qualities, and a tremendous 
job ahead of her. 

We rejoice over every good thing that 
comes to our Alma Mater. On a recent 
furlough, I paid a hurried visit to the 
campus and was delighted with the many 
improvements that greeted the eye on 
every side. It was with no small grati- 
fication, too, that I witnessed a noble 
baseball score rolled up against a zero 
for the Virginia team. 

It is good to know that the Review is 
going to continue to make a fine contri- 
bution to the cause of U. N. C. progress. 
."Ml success to you and to all who take 
part in making "Carolina" what she 
ought to be. 

Lacy L. Little. 

Speaking Philosophically 

John R. Hoffman. Law, '07, writes : 
There is nothing running loose in my 
yard except some very fine White Wyan- 
dots. I have tried very hard for a com- 
panion, Init all have declined the gener- 
ous invitation, so I have arranged for 
passage to Berlin and will sail in Febru- 
ary looking for a life gladiator, or some- 
thing of that kind. 

Men all say that any such a selection 
is all a gamble. If so I have lost lots of 
money and very valuable time, but in my 
declining days, money satisfies me not 
and I know that when I cross the great 
divide for the better day, where friends, 
forsake you not that there will be no 
need of the coin of the realm. Why 
then go crazy after its accumulation and 
commit suicide in your separation from 
it ? So what I am longing for is one 
that will be a friend in my declining days, 
when all have fled and money cnticeth 
not even powder burnt flappers of the 
present life. 

Carolina Alumni in Hawaii 

Owen M. Marshburn, '14. captain in 
the Sth Field Artillery, Schofield Bar- 
racks, Hawaii, has sent The Review sev- 
eral items regarding Carolina men sta- 
tioned nearby. "Nat" Goodwin is play- 
ing football on the town team in Hono- 
lulu. O. R. Rand, '08, is with the 27th 
Infantry at the same post as Captain 
Marshburn. 

Captain Marshburn has been in the 
service continuously since 1917 and has 
been in Hawaii since November 1921. 
He e.xpects to return to the states next 
.August. He obtained license to practice 
law in North Carolina while on duty in 
Washington in 1919. He was married in 
1917 to Miss Lillian Dean Butler of Sa- 
vannah, Ga. 

He advises that Hawaii is not a for- 
eign country and doesn't require the 5 
cent stamp which a letter from the 
Alumni Secretary's office bore. Hawaii 
doesn't like to be called a territory any 
more, he says ; she is trying for state- 
hood.

CHAPEL HILL TAXES! 

The D. K. E. fraternity received, 
the other day, a very large bill (some- 
thing over $100) as part of the taxes 
due on their fine nevif home. This 
was one feature of a large new chapter 
house which they had not figured on 
so much. It is a great pity that our 
building expansion could not have 
come before such tremendous rise in 
cost. It is to the interest of the stu- 
dent body for the number and size 
of fraternities to be increased. It is 
to the interest of the University, in 
its effort to provide dormitory accom- 
modations, to have fraternities build

How to multiply your estate by 3 



D 



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 fVill Not Answer," sent free upon request

And Polo Next? 



There is hardly any limit to which 
the diversification of sports here may 
proceed in the next college generation. 
One student plans next year to estab- 
lish a riding stable of twenty or 
twenty-five horses for rent. The next 
thing will be polo, and it may be the 
campus will join the local fox hunters' 
club, which is organized and led by 
our sporting barbers.

Elisha Mitchell Society 

The Elisha Mitchell Scientific 
Society of the University, the ob- 
ject of which is to record scientific 
research and the results of such 
work, especially those that pertain 
to the natural history of the state, 
recently celebrated its fortieth anni- 
versary. It is said to be the first 
society of its kind in southern 
imiversities. 

Dr. F. P. Venable, its first presi- 
dent after the organization in 1883, 
read a paper outlining its history 



One of the dazzling foundations of 
the city of New Jerusalem, as visioned 
by St. John on the isle of Patmos was 
made of a compound of the element 
zirconium, says Science Service. An- 
other compound of the same element 
may be used to light the bungalows of 
the future. As jacinth, zirconium was 
prized by oriental potentates as a gem. 
In its metallic form it may be em- 
ployed by Americans to read news 
papers on winter evenings. 

Dr. Francis P. Venable of North 
Carolina University says that although 
zirconium is an unfamiliar element, it 
is really widely distributed, and he 
suggests that its properties favor its 
use as a substitute for tungsten in in- 
candescent electric light filaments. Be- 
fore that is done, however, the chemist 
will have to learn how to remove the 
impurities from the metal more 
readilv. — Boston Traveler.
