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

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.
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
n D n
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-
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
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.

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

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-
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.

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.

PRESIDENT CHASE DELIVERS
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

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-

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-

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
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-
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-
"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.
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-
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
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,"
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

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,
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.
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
a. Best available addresses.

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,
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

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.

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
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

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-
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.
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
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.

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,
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.
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-
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-
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
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
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
"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-
"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 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
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.

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
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
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
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.
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

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-
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
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
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
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.

he went into the trade paper business in
which he remained up to his present ven-
ture, barring five years in Chicago.

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

thetic pains that he "passed away."

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.

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
large chapter houses, with space for
all members to live in the house. It
is also to the interest of the democ-
racy of the campus to have fraternity
costs kept down, so that the average
man can afford to partake of the pleas-

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 fVill Not Answer," sent free upon request

made of a compound of the element
zirconium, says Science Service. An-
other compound of the same element

prized by oriental potentates as a gem.
In its metallic form it may be em-

Dr. Francis P. Venable of North

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-
