PRESIDENT CHASE ON ALUMNI ORGANIZATIONS
To the University Alumni :
Just what, in terms of service to the University, is
the importance of a well-organized Alumni Associ-
I should answer, briefly, that effective organization
makes possible service that is continuous, well-in-
formed, and systematic ; service that goes on all the
year and every year.
I do not believe that there is anywhere an alumni
group more loyal, more devoted to the welfare of its
alma mater, than is that of the University. It has
never failed to rally to the University at a time of trial.
Its achievement three years ago in the State-wide cam-
paign for higher education has never been surpassed —
I doubt whether it has ever been equaled — by the
alumni of any institution in America.
But, I am convinced that the time has come in the
life of the University when, if alumni service is to be
most effective, it must be conceived, not only in terms
of what shall be done in periods of stress and emer-
gency, splendid as such service has been and will be,
but in terms also of thoughtful, continuous contact
that centers about the fundamental idea of cooperation
between the University and its alumni in solving Uni-
versity problems and working out and making effective
University programs and policies.
For University problems are today less of the nature
of emergencies and more those of formulating pro-
grams and policies for broadened and more effective
service. And it is, I believe, very essential that the
alumni think steadily along with the University with
regard to these problems in mutual understanding and
helpfulness. Effective organization is clearly essential
if such cooperative thinking and service is to be
systematic and informed.
Let me give two illustrations of what I mean. The
first is a plan suggested by an alumni group, a plan
that a well-organized Alumni Association can easily
take up all over the State, with great helpfulness to
the University. It relates to one of our real problems
— that of the assimilation yearly of a group of fresh-
men making up almost a third of our student body.
This plan seeks to make that an easier task by propos-
ing a meeting of the local Association each fall, just
before the new men leave for the University, at which
the entering freshmen are the guests of the local
alumni and students ; an initiation, so to speak, of new
men into the University traditions and ideals.
The second deals with a conference which it seems
to me should be held here annually — a conference of
alumni officials, of class and local organizations, with
the University. At such a conference the University
should lay, informally and directly, before its alumni,
its plans, its problems and perplexities ; there should be
the freest and frankest sort of interchange of ideas,
criticisms, plans, suggestions and advice. From such
an interchange the University would greatly profit, and
from such a conference alumni officials would return,
themselves in intimate touch with the University as a
growing concern, to broaden the understanding and
enlist the active thinking of their groups.
These two projects are only samples of many that
might be given, but they may serve to make the point.
The successful advent of these, and of many others,
rests on the achievement of an effective organization
that will make possible such systematic and informed
service. Such organization is the foundation on which
the most helpful sort of cooperation must rest. It is
the necessary preliminary to a mutual understanding
and sympathy that will tie together in a systematic way
all the forces of the University here and in the State
for its sure and steady development.
H. W. Chase.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
Organized Alumni Effort
The Review carries on the preceding page a state-
ment by President Chase giving his conception of the
value of organized alumni effort in behalf of the Uni-
versity. At this point The Review wants to urge
alumni to consider the statement most carefully, and to
offer further illustrations of how constant, informed
effort on the part of the alumni can wonderfully
increase the service of the University and make it more
and more one of the outstanding centers of American
The University Press
The University Press, organized at Commencement,
1922, and just now beginning to function steadily, may
serve as the first illustration in point. A study of the
375 catalogues of publishing houses included in "The
Publishers' Trade List Annual" for 1923, shows that
only 21 are of publishing firms located east of the
Mississippi and south of Pennsylvania, and that less
than a half dozen of these 21 are engaged at all
extensively in the publication of scholarly works or
works in the field of general literature. Of the Uni-
versities, Johns Hopkins is the only one that maintains
a press for the publication of books by others than
members of its own faculty, and its output per year is
The development of a publishing business at the
University may prove fairly difficult for a number
of reasons, but just as the University has blazed the
way in the South in Extension and in the building up
of its Graduate School, it has in its Press an instrument
through which it can achieve new distinction and
increase greatly its service to the State and nation.
The Mitchell Journal, Studies in Philology, The Jour-
nal of Social Forces are nationally and internationally
known and acclaimed, and it is not too much to expect
that the books by Coker and Leavitt, of the faculty,
and the forth-coming books of Woodrow Wilson and
Dean Pound and Professor Dinsmore, to mention pub-
lications now under way, will be received with high
acclaim by scholars and the general public alike.
Organized alumni, interested in the Press, whether
in North Carolina or throughout the country at large,
can get behind its work, can draw the attention of
local book-dealers to its offerings, can see that its pub-
lications are reviewed and given publicity in their
localities, and in various other ways can put it on the
map. And an occasional individual alumnus or local
association that wants to do something particularly
worth while, can send it a check for $100 or $1000 for
promotion purposes, or $5000 or $10,000 for perma-
How Great Libraries Grow
A second illustration is the upbuilding of a great
scholarly library for the South. With the ending of
1923 the University Library moved ahead, both in
point of number of volumes on its shelves and journals
regularly received, of all the libraries of the colleges
and universities between Johns Hopkins and the Uni-
versity of Texas, and it was spending for books, peri-
odicals, and bindings an amount which compared
favorably with that spent by these institutions.
But the point we are making is not what the State
is enabling the University to do for the Library
through taxes, but what alumni should and can do
through organized cooperation. In time, the writer of
the history of the Southeast, whether political, social,
or economic, is going to find it necessary to take Chapel
Hill into consideration in the preparation of his mate-
rials. And every alumnus, every local association, can
contribute to this end. Throughout North Carolina
there are hundreds of collections of material relating
to the State and the South that are going to waste j
which could and should be secured for the University
and sent here. Every week or month some pamphlet
is issued by a local printery a copy of which should
reach the Library, but it can only do so through alumni
assistance. And throughout the states of the South
the gathering of materials representative of the life
and thought of the states in question could be accumu-
lated and forwarded as occasion offered.
This, fellow alumni, is the way great libraries are
built up. We were reading the statistics of some of
the larger university libraries a few days ago and noted
that while the 12,000 volumes added by Carolina in
1922-23 cost approximately $25,000, the 30,000 or
70,000 added by some of the others cost appreciably
less per volume, due to the fact of the steady stream
of gifts and special collections turned in by alumni
which cut the average price per volume down.
Can Become Promoters of Scholarship
The primary function of the University is to train
men and equip them fully for their life work.
Sometimes The Review finds itself ■ wondering
whether the alumni, as a total organization or as class
units, realize the privilege within their grasp of assist-
ing in this particular work.
The other day we were looking over the books on the
shelves of a member of the faculty and noted on the
fly-leaf of a set of books this inscription : "The Latin
Prize, presented by the Class of 1896." Upon inquiry
we found that in the institution which the faculty
member attended there had been established by its class
of 1896 a prize which was awarded annually to the
sophomore who made the highest grade in Latin. The
prize took the form of books in which the influence of
the Classics was particularly noticeable. In other
words, the class of 1896 in that institution, through
close organization, has reminded twenty-seven subse-
quent classes in their sophomore year that scholarship
of a high order is a desirable thing. And the reminder
has been impressive, because it represented the interest
of an organized unit, rather than of an individual, the
nearest approximation of which on this campus is the

Bryan Was Wrong
It was William Jennings Bryan, we believe, that
said if America were attacked 1,000,000 volunteers
would arise over night to meet the invaders. But
America came to the conclusion that the Bryan method
wasn't the best that could be devised to meet a par-
And so with alumni organization. As President
Chase says alumni have come splendidly to the rescue
of the University in the case of emergency. But with
closer organization they can and should be constantly
in readiness for quick mobilization on any point calling
for effective effort — whether in promoting the Press,
or building up the Library, or completing the Graham
Memorial, or building a stadium, or assisting the
Extension Division in setting up activities locally, or
fighting shoulder to shoulder for the University's sup-
port, or bringing out an alumni catalogue or war
record, or what not. Alma Mater cannot take the first
place among the universities of the South that she can
and should take and hold, if she must depend upon the
unorganized, rather than the organized, purposeful
effort of her sons.
□ □ □
There is no word of tribute The Review can say
which would express its admiration for Woodrow
Wilson, distinguished scholar and great American
lately fallen asleep, upon whom the University in 1911,
conferred her degree of highest distinction and added
to her roll of adopted sons.
Instead, it reproduces here from Mr. Wilson's
address on Lee, delivered in Gerrard Hall in 1909, two
paragraphs from which it is evident that Mr. Wilson,
in the role he played as the Nation's great war presi-
dent, realized in his own person, unconsciously perhaps,
but none the less actually, the ideals so prophetically-
expressed in his interpretation of Lee :
There is a sense, I sometimes think, in which every one of us
in whose life principle forms a part is merely holding up a light
which he himself did not kindle, not his own principle, not
something peculiar and individual to himself, but that light
which must light all mankind, the love of truth, the love of
duty, the love of those things which are not stated in the terms
of personal interest. That is the force and that the lire that
moulds men or else consumes them. You need not be afraid of
the fire that is in selfish passion, you can crush that ; but you
cannot crush the lire that is in unselfish passion. You know
that there you are in the presence of the greatest force in the
world, the only force that lifts men or nations to greatness, or
purifies communities; and that is the consuming fire which we
dare not touch.
I wish there was some great orator who could go about and
make men drunk with this spirit of self-sacrifice. I wish there
were some man whose tongue might every day carry abroad the
golden accents of that creative age in which we were born a
nation ; accents which would ring like tones of reassurance
around the whole circle of the globe, so that America might
again have the distinction of showing men the way. the certain
way. of achievement and of confident hope.
A Proposal to Teach the Bible
Alumni have recently seen in the religious and sec-
ular press of the State a number of news articles and
editorials concerning the establishment of a "chair of
Bible" in the University.
The articles have grown out of a meeting held at the
University last spring and two meetings held recently
in Greensboro and Chapel Hill, respectively, at which
representatives of various churches of the State con-
stituting an interdenominational conference had under
discussion the question of providing, in the University
and other State institutions, courses in the history and
literature of the Bible which could be counted for
credit toward a degree by the students electing them.
In the main, four plans have received consideration :
(1) That the University should establish a chair of
Bible just as it does a chair in any other subject. (_')
That the denominations, acting through a committee,
should furnish the money for such a chair, the chair to
be filled by the University upon the nomination of the
committee, (oj That such churches as desired to do
so place a teacher in connection with one of the local
churches, and that credit be given for the work done in
the courses taken by University students, provided the
scholarship of the teacher, the thoroughness of the
courses, and the library facilities backing the courses,
were found adequate by a special committee of the
faculty. (^4) That such denominations as desired to do
so establish local schools of religion chartered under
State law, provide their own teachers, conduct such
courses as they wished for the benefit of University
students, and transfer credits from their institutions
thus established and chartered for such work done,
just as credits are regularly transferred at present by
other colleges of the State. If desirable, all the denomi-
nations might combine and make the school cooper-
ative, credits being given by the University in con-
formity with approved standards set up by the
Stated in Concrete Terms
Stated in concrete terms, the plan which the repre-
sentatives of the churches, after deliberation at Chapel
Hill on Pebruary 5, presented the University for con-
sideration and which they are to report back to their
own denominations for further consideration, follows:
W e, the members of the Special Committee appointed
by the Greensboro Conference of January 8th, 1924,
have agreed upon the following plan to be presented
to the authorities of the University of North Carolina
for their consideration : ( 1 ) That the Bible should be
taught in the University of North Carolina; (2) That
it should be taught under the auspices of the religious
denominations, cooperating as follows : (a) That those
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
who teach the Biblical courses shall be elected through
the regular channels of the University, on the nomina-
tion of the churches participating; (b) The salaries
and expense of such teachers shall be provided for
either through private gifts, or by the churches cooper-
ating, and not through taxation or from public funds ;
(c) It is understood that such teachers should hold
their position subject to the approval of both the Uni-
versity authorities and the committee representing the
participating organizations; (d) The course of study
to be offered shall be arranged by the University, after
consultation with the above standing committee, repre-
senting the participating bodies.

Your Opinion Wanted
The Review has no carefully thought-out comment
to make on the specific proposal submitted by the Con-
ference. It has set forth the proposal and the various
directions the discussion has taken in order that the
alumni may know what the situation is, and may, in
these columns, express their opinion concerning it.
Law School Standard Raised
One of the most important steps taken by the Uni-
versity in recent years was the decision, at the meeting
of the Trustees in January, to raise the standard of
admission to the Law School in 1925 so as to comply
with the best prevailing practice of the country.
Beginning in September, 1925, according to the plan
adopted, it will be necessary for candidates seeking
admission to the Law School to have had two years of
The basis for this action is that for the mastery of
the law, which has become more and more complex
with the increasing complexity of modern life, a
broader foundation is essential than in former years.
In making the decision the University is but taking
the same sort of action it is taking all along the line,
not in an effort to exclude any student from any of its
courses, but on the contrary to insure all of its students
that if they meet the requirements of admission and
classroom work, when their courses are completed they
can enter upon their work with the assurance that
their training rests upon a proper foundation — a sit-
uation which has not prevailed as generally in the past
as it should. Accordingly, The Review congratulates
both the Law School and the State upon the forward

Are You Among Those Over-due?
On February first the Graham Memorial office sent
out notices for subscriptions made in 1919-20 not
renewed in 1923 for a total of something over $30,000.
Now that the work of excavation of the central unit
of the building is progressing and the foundations are
soon to get under way, it is necessary for subscriptions
to come in promptly if the work of construction is to
go steadily forward.
As this issue goes to press, the student body, faculty,
and town are lining up in a splendid drive for further
subscriptions. This particular job, the doing of which
looks to the unifying of the spirit of the campus is,
after five years of necessary waiting, finally under way
and all alumni who have pledged their assistance are
expected to respond now.
THREE NEW PLAYS
Three new folk plays have been
selected for production next quarter
by the Carolina Playmakers as the re-
sult of authors' reading and rehearsals
The new plays are "Nancy's Com-
mencement Dress" by Pearl Setzer, of
Hickory ; "The Younger Set" by Sue
Bird Thompson, of Norfolk, Va. ; and
"The Wheel" by Earnest Thompson,
of Goldsboro. All are contemporary
comedies. These plays will be pre-
sented in Chapel Hill on April 4 and 5.
The Playmakers recently returned
from a successful tour of eastern
North Carolina. During the spring
quarter they go on a western tour.
Prof. Edward Alsworth Ross, of
the University of Wisconsin, will de-
liver the Weil lectures for this year.
He speaks in Chapel Hill on April
11, 12 and 13.
ENROLL FIVE HUNDRED
A survey just completed by Prof.
George B. Zehmer, head of the depart-
ment of Extension Teaching of the
Extension Division, shows that since
last October approximately 500 per-
sons have taken advantage of exten-
sion classes conducted throughout the
State by the University for the benefit
of persons who are unable to come to
Chapel Hill for courses. These fig-
ures should not be confused with those
for persons taking correspondence
courses, of which there were 1.300

teams from the University dormitories

spring track prospects.

ning to put out a new comic magazine
to be called "The Buccaneer." There
will be two numbers this year, at

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
ALUMNI DAY PROGRAM IS REVISED
General Reunion Program and Business Meeting Are to be Separated
Alumni Day June 9
The General Assembly of the Alum-
ni Association this year will be con-
ducted by delegates from the local as-
sociations and class organizations.
The business meeting will be di-
vorced from the general reunion pro-
gram of Alumni Day and will be held
at 9:30 on the morning of June 9 in
Memorial Hall. The reunion program
of the classes will follow the business
meeting and will take place about noon
in Memorial Hall.
"The business meeting this year will
be thoroughly organized," says Secre-
tary Grant. "This is a gathering of
the men who have accepted responsible
positions in some one group in the
association. When they legislate — re-
solve, they are voting tasks upon their
own shoulders. The tendency will be
for a sane, business-like control. Pro-
jects cannot be launched upon the
alumni without the sanction of the
Assembly. Decisions reached can be
carried to the entire alumni group
through the means of this Assembly
of their duly elected officers."
In preparation for the institution of
this method of control a Conference of
Alumni Class Secretaries was held in
Chapel Hill on January 11, and now a
series of regional conferences of local
club officers are being conducted
throughout the State. The Board of
Directors decided to get in touch with
the local club officers through the
means of small conferences than to
expect them to make the trip to Chapel
Hill for a single conference.
The first regional conference, cov-
ering Richmond, Anson, Moore, Mont-
gomery, Hoke, Scotland and Robeson
counties, was held at Rockingham on
February 9 under the direction of
Isaac S. London, member of the
Board of Directors from that district.
Representatives from the associations
in this district have been invited to
the meeting of the Robeson county
alumni in Lumberton when the three
associations of that county are to be
reorganized into one.
The second district conference was
held at the Yarborough Hotel. Ral-
eigh, on February 23, under the direc-
tion of O. J. Coffin. It included Lee,
Chatham, Harnett, Cumberland, Dur-
ham, Granville, Wake, Johnston,
Vance and Franklin counties. All of
these counties have duly formed local
associations save Johnston, Franklin
This meeting approved the present
conduct of the affairs of the General
Association, and it was agreed that if
the work is to succeed on the level to
which it has been pitched, since the
opening of the Central Office in Sep-
tember, 1922, it is vital that each class
and local association render immediate
and wholehearted support. The im-
portance of forming local associations
in those counties which- have none was
also stressed. The apportionment of
the expense of the Central Office for
the remainder of this year as made by
the Board of Directors was accepted,
and it was urged that each group of
local association officers immediately
give this matter their attention. The
quotas for this district are : Lee,
$100; Harnett, $200; Cumberland,
300; Durham, $500; Granville, $100;
Wake, $500; Vance, $150.
The following men in the unorgan-
ized counties were requested to take
active supervision of the work of
forming in each a local association :
Johnston — F. O. Ray, George D. Vick
and Ezra Parker; Vance — B. H. Perry
and S. T. Pease; Franklin — A. H.
Vann and T. W. Ruffin.
The proposal that the affairs of the
Alumni Association be controlled by
the alumni through the medium of the
local and class organizations was en-
thusiastically endorsed. It was the
sense of the meeting that nothing
should be launched as an alumni pro-
ject without the complete endorsement
of the general association.
NINETY-NINE PLANS BIG
Plans for a record-breaking youth-
renewing celebration at Commencement
of the anniversary of the graduation of
the class of 1899 are well under way, if
the words of R. D. W. Connor, H. M.
Wagstaff, and the undersigned are worthy
of credence by our classmates. Acting
under the authority of W. S. Crawford,
vice-president of the class, the commit-
tee has evolved the following procedure
for the reunion :
Monday, June 9. 7 p. m. — Banquet in
Gooche's banquet room, in celebration of
the 25th anniversary of graduation. All
members of the class, graduates and non-
graduates and affiliated members of the
professional schools, their wives and
children, are expected to be present.
Tuesday, June 10, 9 :30 a. m. — Attend-
ance at the business meeting of the Gen-
eral Alumni Association in Memorial
Hall. 12 Noon — A speech by some repre-
sentative of the class at the speechfest in
Gerrard Hall. 1 :30 p. m. — Alumni lunch-
eon at reserved tables in Swain Hall
where dinner will take precedence over
oratory. 3 :30 p. m. — Baseball, and stunts
by the younger, less dignified classes, on
Emerson field. 6 :00 p. m. — Faculty re-
ception under Davie Poplar. 8 :30 p. m.
— Free tickets to the Playmakers, and
talk into the wee, small hours of the
Wednesday the seniors will back us off
the platform but we can still stick around
and find out what Alma Mater is doing
and catch anew her spirti of youth and
In the meantime, mark the dates down
on your calendar and hold them against
all comers. Ninety-nine has always come
back strong and this is to be the record
year. Furthermore, be ready, within the
next few days, to send in a story about
yourself for the class record which is to

1909 PLANS REUNION
The class of 1909 is making elabor-
ate plans for its fifteen year reunion.
Long since a committee has been
designated and it is to meet this
month and perfect plans in detail for
the four-day stay oji the Hill.
The committee is composed of Jno.

ham; O. J, Coffin and J. H. Man-
ning, Raleigh; K. D. Battle, Rocky
Mount, and C. W. Tillett, Jr., Char-
The committee plans to reach Chapel
Hill on Saturday. It will meet at the
station in Durham the members of
the class as they arrive for the gala
event, and will probably dress each
member in appropriate togs before al-
lowing them to enter the precincts of
the village of Chapel Hill.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
DAN GRANT MARRIED
Miss Anne Majette, of Jesup, Ga.,
and Mr. Daniel L. Grant, Secretary of
the General Alumni Association, were
married in Chapel Hill on February
12 in the home of Dr. and Mrs. James
F. Royster, with whom Miss Majette
had lived since she first came to Chapel
Hill last fall. The Rev. W. D. Moss,
of the Presbyterian Church, officiated.
The marriage was planned as a sur-
prise and there were few attendants.
Miss Majette came to Chapel Hill
last fall from Boston, Mass., where she
was a member of the Boston State So-
ciety and student in drama for a year.
Previously she had graduated from the
American Academy of Dramatic Art
in New York and had studied in the
University of Georgia. She is assist-
ant to Professor Frederick Koch in
the work of the Carolina Playmakers.
Mr. Grant is a graduate of the class
of 1921, in which he was an outstand-
ing leader, establishing a splendid re-
cord as debator and orator and as edi-
tor of the Tar Heel. Previous to his
appointment as Alumni Secretary he
completed for the University a survey
of high school conditions in the State.
Connor and Everett on Commission
R. D. W. Connor, '99, Kenan profes-
sor of history in the University, and R.
O. Everett, '03, prominent attorney of
Durham, have been selected as president
and secretary, respectively, of a commis-

The general assembly, at its session in
1923. passed an act creating a commis-

Reproduction of the Canova Statute of
Washington," to collect information and

to the advisability of undertaking to have
the Canova statute reproduced.

The New Alumni
Thomas L. Warren, '22, of Concord,
who was well known on the Hill as inter-
collegiate debater and president of the Di
Society, has a few observations regard-
ing what he describes as the "freshmen"
alumni. Of them he writes:
We of the class of '22 are too little
adjusted to "the serious business of life"
to take a leading role in matters of gen-
eral alumni interest. I judge none of us,
unless it be J. Dewey Dorsette, has
babies at our habitations ; none of us
has developed "senatorial" girths ; none
of us has planned trips abroad ; none as
yet has achieved a business success ;
none have received any political appoint-
ment or eaten any political pie. It has
been a great and difficult problem to
make the transition from the Univer-
sity to the outside world.
In my judgment, The Alumni Review
should carry a page or two devoted to
the "fresh" alumni, to those who have
not yet, perhaps, had their "sheep-skins"
framed. It can render a valuable and
encouraging service in this direction.
Civilians who don the uniform must be
drilled and guided to become soldiers;
young alumni must be encouraged and
advised to find their place in the scheme
of things. The Carolina Spirit should
not die within the circumference of the
campus but it should find its way all over
North Carolina and everywhere an alum-
nus is found.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
IS GREAT SUCCESS
A resume of the wrestling season
shows that the infant sport has gained
a firm foothold in University athletics.
The Carolina matmen scored 138
points as compared with 72> by their
opponents. The season is regarded as
a success from every point of view.
Prohably the most outstanding man
of the year was Mathewson, who did
not lose a match the entire season. He
is a medical student and will leave this
year, but Zack Waters, a close second
in honors, will be back, and so will
Guy Hagan. who won every meet on
the Virginia trip.
The line-up of the men as they went

and Vick, 139; Zack Waters, 149:
Captain Shirley Waters, 162: Poin-
dexter. 175: and Burke and Bostick in
the unlimited class.
The success of the team is said to be
due in a large measure to Coach A. A.
Shapiro, a member of the Romance
Language department, who, with Dr.
Bob Lawson, has done everything pos-
sible to encourage the sport. Aubrey
Shackell, of Edenton, has been man-

the squad plenty of work. The sched-
ule is incomplete, but the opening meet
will probably be wiht Clemson College
here on April 5. Either a dual meet
with N. C. State or a triangular meet
with State and Washington and Lee
will be held here on April 12. Then
follows a triangular meet with the Uni-
versity of South Carolina and Georgia,
place not yet decided upon. Carolina
will participate in the Southern relay
carnival in Atlanta on April 26. The
State championship meet will be held
in aleigh on May 3. Carolina will
also take part in the Southern Con-

CAROLINA QUINT AGAIN WINS SOUTHERN CHAMPIONSHIP
Brilliant Teamwork Big Factor in Victory — Second In Three Years
Wins High Praise — Chapel Hill Celebrates
The Carolina basketball team has
won the southern championship in
basketball for the second time in three
No other team has won the title
twice, and the Tar Heels made their
second victory all the more impres-
sive by defeating in this year's con-
ference the two former champion's —
Kentucky, which won the first south-
ern conference tournament in 1921,
and Mississippi A. and M., which was
defending in this tournament the title
won last year. Carolina's former vic-
tory was in 1922.
Brilliant team work was the chief
factor in the Carolina victories. The
quint was equally effective in attack
and defense and such dangerous op-
ponents as Kentucky, Vanderbilt,
Mississippi Aggies and Alabama, were
in turn eliminated by safe margins.
A Glorious Record
Carolina's basketball record is one
to stir every alumnus with pride.
Few college quints in the country have
equalled it. In addition to southern
honors, this season's record gave the
Tar Heels the South Atlantic cham-
pionship for the fourth consecutive
It is not a "fur piece" from the few
years ago that Carolina won 7 of 11
games played to the time she won 26
out of 26. Carolina made her basket-
ball debut in 1911. Since then her
quints have plaved 200 games and won
Northern Trip a Feature
This season's record has been phe-
nomenal in many ways. With the ex-
ception of Trinity, which proved a
dangerous opponent, Carolina experi-
enced no difficulty in defeating all
comers in the State.
The northern trip was a notable
feature. Carolina defeated V. M. I.
40 to 25 after the Cadets secured a 19
to 17 lead in the first half. Billy
Devin's work in this game was out-
standing and assured him of a varsity
The Tar Heels then journeyed to
Washington and defeated Catholic
University 26 to 20. Commenting on
this game sport writers said Car-
michael was the best player seen in
the capital city anytime of late.
Here is the complete season's
record of the basketball team. It
shows that Carolina won 26 con-
secutive games and scored a total
of 961 points as compared with

Captain Green Injured
It was in the next contest wtih the
University of Maryland that Captain
Winton Green sustained a "Charley
Horse" that kept him out of the game
virtually the remainder of the season.
The score was 35 to 22.
The game with the Navy was called
off on account of the death of Wood-
row Wilson. Lynchburg College, the
next opponent, was defeated 36 to 26.
Here the squad was joined by "Monk"
McDonald, who had been unable to
leave with the team because he felt
his studies were more important at
Virginia Easily Defeated
From Lynchburg the Tar Heels
went back to Lexington where Wash-
ington and Lee was defeated by the
close score of 19 to 16 in the hardest
and fastest contest of the trip. The
Generals never got a field goal until
after the first 31 minutes of play, and
the Tar Heels, with the whole team
starring, were able to do little better.
Carolina did not have much diffi-
culty defeating Virginia 33 to 20. The
score stood 14 to 9 at the end of the
first half after which Carolina forged
Returning from the northern trip,
the Tar Heels' played a number of
games in rapid succession, defeating
Washington and Lee by another close
score on the eve of their departure
Take 22 Consecutive Wins
Thus Carolina left to enter the
Southern Intercollegiate Conference
tournament with a clean-cut record of
22 games and 22 victories. The stu-
dent body, however, was none too con-
fident that the southern title would be
brought back to Chapel Hill, for the
Tar Heels had lost in 1923 when a
repetition of 1922 seemed certain.
And while Captain Green was accom-
panying the team it was an assured
fact that he would be able to do little if
It turned out that Captain Green
could not play, but even the loss of
their captain did not stop the Tar
Heels. In the first encounter Caro-
lina doubled the score on Kentucky
and won 41 to 20. Carmichael and
Cobb were stars.
Next came the Alabama quint which
was defeated 37 to 20. Cobb scored
19 points before being removed in the
The Mississippi Aggies, holders of
the 1923 title, were eliminated 33 to
23. The game ended as the Aggies
were staging a rally after the Tar
Heels had sent in a number of substi-
tutes. Carolina was leading 16 to 7
at the end of the first half.
Then came the final game with the
Alabama quint which held Carolina to

a 26 to 18 scores. The first half
ended 13 to 10 in favor of Carolina.
A display of the sort of sportsman-
ship that has always characterized
Carolina's athletic teams came in the
second half when Captain Carter of
the Alabama team was removed for
personal fouls. This was the third
Alabama man to be benched and with
the number of players elegible limited.
it was announced Alabama would fin-
ish the game with only four players.
Carmichael, Carolina's acting- captain,
objected and Carter was permitted to
return after a conference among offi-
cials. The score at the time stood 23
to 16. This game was witnessed by
Chapel Hill Celebrates
Night after night following the de-
parture of the team for Atlanta the
students gathered at the cafes and
telegraph offices about 10 o'clock and
anxiously awaited word of the out-
come. And each night at the bare
score telling the story of victory came
ticking over the wires from Atlanta
the students went wild with joy. Fire-
works were set off, bonfires were lit,
the bell in the old South Building was
rung, and there was general rejoicing.
The victory over Kentucky brought
abundant faith to the campus ; the de-
feat of the Aggies strengthened that
faith and so everybody was in readi-
ness to celebrate when the first flash
of the final victory came. The stu-
dents filled the streets and waited in
front of Gooch's Cafe for an hour.
They were anxious moments. It
seemed the returns never would come.
Every now and then somebody would
emit a yell and several others would
join in the chorus before the false
alarm was quelled.
It was shortly after 11 o'clock when
the glad tidings reached Chapel Hill.
That set off the fireworks, both liter-
ally and figuratively. Already some
enterprising freshmen had a big pile
of lightwood and logs in front of the
Old South Building. Somebody struck
a match and a bonfire lit up the heav-
ens. Another somebody reached for
the old bell rope that the late "Horny
Handed" Henry used to know so well
and the good news were rung into the
hearts of folks for miles around.
Around the Old Well
Then the students gathered around
the old well. Cheer leaders P. C.
Froneberger and L. V. Huggins took
matters in hand and an organized
celebration was on. The University
band played "Hark the Scgmd!" and
hundreds of lusty voices sang it as
they never had before.
And then would come a "Split Caro-
lina" yell for the team and another for
Alabama. Then a "Yackety-Yack !
Ray ! Ray !" for Carmichael, another
for Cobb, another for McDonald and
so on through the list. Old timers
such as Professors Vernon Howell,
Charlie Mangum and Bob Lawson
stood by and smiled knowingly. May-
be they were recalling the memorable
football victories of '98 and '03 and
After the celebration around the well
the students formed in columns four
abreast and began a march that ended
twelve miles away — in Durham. First
they marched to the quadrangle group
of new dormitories and indulged in
more yells and songs. Theny they vis-
ited the home of President Chase.
President Chase Speaks
The University president came out
on the front porch and was cheered
again and again. He assured the stu-
dents nobody's cup of joy was fuller
than his. It was one of the greatest
days in the history of Carolina ath-
letics, he said. President Chase spoke
for five minutes between spells of
cheering. Since the opening of the
tournament he had sent telegrams daily
to the Carolina quint congratulating
them on their showing and had awaited
the results each night just as eagerly
as the most enthusiastic student.
Leaving the President's home, the
student's took turn through the streets
singing and yelling at the top of their
voices. As they completed a quad-
rangle and came back in front of the
President's mansion somebody said
let's go to Durham. That was enough.
The Trek to Durham
The cheer leaders called for a show
of hands. How many were willing to
walk twelve miles over a paved road
to show the Bull city folk how Caro-
lina felt about the victory? Virtually
every hand went up.
That was shortly after midnight.
About three hours later a weary but
enthusiastic horde of students marched
into Durham, led by a 25-piece band
that seemed to care not whether any-
body slept. They made their way to
the homes of Carmichael and Cobb and
serenaded the families of the two Dur-
ham boys who led Carolina's scoring.
Then the marchers took a turn through
the streets, cheering and singing as
they went. Dawn found them return-
ing to Chapel Hill in relays, but they
Carolina's quint has been coached by
Norman Shepard, of Wilmington, a
former star player. He leaves soon
for China, where he will be with the
Liggett-Myers Tobacco Company.
McDonald and Carmichael played
their last games this season.
"Mule" Shirley Leaves
"Mule" Shirley, captain of this
year's baseball team, has left the Hill
to join the Washington club of the
American League, to which he was
sold recently by the Norfolk club of
the Virginia League. Captain Shirley
was a versatile athlete and a popular
student, and he will be greatly missed.
The University V. M. C. A. has
taken over the operation of a motion
picture show, done in furtherance of
the Y program of service to the stu-
dent body. The burning of the Pick-
wick theater left Chapel Hill without
a motion picture house and in view of
the popular demand for movies the Y
decided to undertake the operation of
a show in Gerrard Hall.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
TWO UNIVERSITY ALUMNI IN THE POLITICAL LIMELIGHT
Josephus Daniels and Angus W. McLean Being Boomed For Highest
Offices in Nation and State
Josephus Daniels, Law '86
Two prominent Carolina alumni are
now being boosted for the highest of-
fices in the gift of the state and
Josephus Daniels, Law '86, editor
of the News and Observer and former
Secretary of the Navy under Wood-
row Wilson, is being urged to enter
the race for President. The Daniels
boom got under way last month when
a number of leading journals through-
out the country printed editorials and
interviews praising Mr. Daniels'
record and referring to him. as the
logical nominee for President.
The boom in North Carolina took
definite shape in the organization of
Daniels-for-President clubs in Raleigh
and many other towns. A move to
place his name before the Democratic
Convention of North Carolina has
steadily gained momentum.
Meanwhile Mr. Daniels himself has
spent considerable time in Philadelphia
writing a book on Woodrow Wilson
and, while predicting a Democratic
victory, has made no statement re-
garding the move to nominate him
other than to telegraph friends in
Georgia, who had requested to be al-
lowed to place his name in the con-
test for the Democratic presidential
nomination in the primaries of that
state, not to do so.
The University conferred the hon-
orary degree of LL.D. on Mr. Daniels
at the 1914 Commencement, after
President Wilson had appointed him
Secretary of the Navy. He is a mem-
ber of the executive committee of the
board of trustees.
Angus Wilton McLean
Angus Wilton McLean, law '92, of
Lumberton, announced his candidacy
for governor on March 8. W. J.
Brogden, Durham attorney, a Univer-
sity graduate of 1898, will manage his
campaign. J. W. Bailey, of Raleigh,
is the other Democratic candidate.
Mr. McLean is a lawyer and banker.
During the war he served under Presi-
dent Wilson as Director of the War
Finance Corporation and as Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury. He has
been Democratic National Committee-
man from this State for eight years.
He has been a member of the board
of trustees of the University for a
number of years.
LAW SCHOOL STANDARD IS
RAISED TO GRADE A RANK
At their meeting in Raleigh on Jan-
uary 30 the board of trustees of the
University adopted the recommend-
ation of President Chase that the Law
School be placed on a grade "A" basis,
conforming to the requirements as laid
down by the American Bar Associa-
This means that two years of col-
legiate training will be required of ap-
plicants, the exception being a limited
number over 21 years of age with
special training. Thus five years of
study will be required for a degree,
two years in the College of Liberal
Arts and three years in the Law
School. The new ruling becomes
effective in September, 1925.
George L. Clark, professor of Law
in the University of Cincinnati, on
leave of absence from that institution,
has taken over temporarily the courses
taught by the late Dean McGehee.
Pickwick Theatre Burned
The Pickwick Theatre, the only mo-
tion picture house in Chapel Hill and
a popular institution among University
students, was gutted by fire early on
the morning of February 9. Along
with it went a building occupied by
O'Kelly's Pressing Club. Strowd's

The interest of the student body in
unity and their capacity for uniting
in a great All-University enterprise is
being demonstrated in the success of
the Graham Memorial campaign. Pre-
sented by President Allsbrook, Presi-
dent Chase and Albert Coates as not
merely a financial campaign but an op-
portunity for unifying the whole Uni-
versity and providing a physical basis
for perpetuating that unity, the cam

late hour. The phone monitor replied
that it was ringing for the mid-week
Bible study groups, and so the wild
and woolly campus bids fair to follow
the wild and woolly West into the
lengend of good old days that never
will be again, and never really were
Change of Spirit
Along with the material growth of
the University since the war there lias
been a steady, slow change of student
spirit. Each year one who listens to
the tones and over-tones of student
life can hear gradually rising above
all other notes that one which dis-
tinguishes that particular year's cam-
pus spirit. Four years ago, shaken to
its foundation by the shock upon
shock of war, disorganization, loss of
recognized leaders and world cynicism
and demoralization, the campus won-
dered if the University was worthy of
its confidence and was certain that it
did not trust its own leaders. The year
following was a year of re-emerging
student initiative and student leaders
felt new confidence in themselves, but
not yet in the University. Afraid of
growth, they were neither certain that
the University could carry on into the
future its heritage of its spirit of the
past, nor entirely certain that that
heritage was worth carrying on. The
next year was a year of peace but not
progress, except insofar as peace itself
was the mark of progress. There was
an absence of distrust between men
and groups and yet no great feeling
of confidence. This year the campus
has accepted the future of expansion,
faces it without fear, feels a new con-
fidence in the institution, is stirred by
a sense of need for re-organization
and unification of student life, but feels
that the task can be done. Student
leadership, provided with an inspira-
tion and an opportunity by the task
of building the Graham Memorial, an-
nounces its intention of achieving
unity, and turns its back upon the past,
except insofar as that past can be car-
ried forward in the future. Individ-
uals are becoming more conscious of
their loyalty to their class, and classes
are becoming more certain of their re-
lation to the University. Looking
back, then, over this hasty sketch of
four years of campus history there is
to be found the basis for expecting
the next college generation to lift the
whole level of student life and thought
and spirit to a new high-water mark
of happy achievement.
New University Ring
The senior, junior and sophomore
classes are about to let the contract for
a new University ring. Ibis ring will
be a large man's ring, with stone set-
ting, and will carry the University
seal, the old well and the class num-
eral. It is the purpose of these classes
to work out, with the aid of the
leading manufacturing jewelers of
America, a ring of such beauty and
value that it will be worn after all
cheap and transient finery of college
life has been lost or cast aside. This
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
is, apparently, the most successful ef-
fort made in recent years to find a sym-
bol of class unity and University unity
which will be effective and acceptable.
It is probably the last and crowning
contribution of the Class of '24, which
has had an unusual record of leader-
ship. It was the Class of '24 that
organized the dormitories, the Inter-
dormitory Club, and made the begin-
nings in the intra-mural sports pro-
gram. Now it takes the lead in work-
ing for a unified campus through the
physical center of the Graham Memo-
rial, and the spiritual symbol of the
Choosing Cheer Leaders
The Monogram Club and the Cam-
pus Cabinet are proposing a plan
which will put into effect a competitive
method of selecting University cheer
leaders. A certain number of fresh-
men will be chosen at the end of each
year, who will act as sub-assistant
cheer leaders the next year. From
them, at the end of the sophomore
year, will be chosen assistant cheer
leaders, and from the assistant cheer
leaders the students will select, by bal-
lot, at the end of their junior year,
the one who is to be chief cheer leader
for the following year. Supporters of
the plan claim that it is necessary, be-
cause of the growing size of the stu-
dent body, which prevents the students
knowing what a man can do until he
has been given an opportunity to try
out, and it is their opinion that we
need a larger number of assistant
cheer leaders with the growing num-
ber of sports and contests.
Those Yackety-Yack Bills!
Page Oscar Leach and all his pre-
decossors and successors who signed
notes as business managers of the
Yackety-Yack and whom the students
thought of as the greatest grafters on
the campus ! Of the forty-five organi-
zations taking space in this new an-
nual, forty- four have already paid
their bills in full. Some one has re-
marked that the Publications Union
with its "Pay as you go" rule, is the
greatest agent for moral regeneration
at present evangelizing this campus.
Falls Into the Walk
The University campus has never
been perfectly drained. The construc-
tion of new buildings and the installa-
tion of new pipe lines have not helped
to eliminate any mud. The following
clipping from the Tar Heel will inter-
est many who have "slid carefully
home" in the days that are gone :
Dear Shriek :
I witnessed the close of a peculiar
moving tragedy yesterday. The Uni-
versity workmen were removing the
remains of a very promising (that
is, he was formerly very promising)
freshman from in front of Dormi-
It was during the rains of a few
weeks ago that I was carefully slid-
ing home at about ten o'clock, ( ?
Ed.) taking great care to place my
feet only on the high spots where
the sprouting grass had prevented the
torrents from washing away the soil.
In front of me was the promising
freshman mentioned above. Care-
less, with the abandon of youthful
vigor in his every motion, he strode
blithely onward. But alas, poor
yokel, he had mistaken his direction.
You have guessed it, dear Shriek,
— he had fallen into the walk.
Very truly yours,
Ed. note— Dear DUM DUM:
Much obliged, Your truly,
New Sports Sheet
The Intra-mural Sports Department
of the Office of the Dean of Students
finds a publication es'sential to the pro-
motion of its program, and so there
appears a weekly sheet printed in blue
ink on white paper and distributed to
the dormitories each Monday, the
Intra-Mural Sport-Gram, which will
carry to all interested a schedule of
contests, scores, and other information
of interest and value to the promotion
of general student participation in
Student Council History
It is a risky thing to volunteer as
historian of an unwritten constitution.
However, I will hazard this brief
sketch of the expansion of the Student
Council's jurisdiction. Organized about
1905 to try cases of cheating on class,
in 1909 took cognizance of drunken-
ness, in 1912 of hazing, in 1921 of
"rowdyism" and in the winter of 1924
suspended an upperclassman for tak-
ing books from the library without
having them charged out at the desk.
Chapel Hill Police Active
I am informed that the time was
when "Jug" Whitaker was somewhat
helpless in the hands of student mobs.
Be that as it may, the police of the
town have never been very active on
the University campus. There has
grown up a general feeling that the
campus was more or less outside of
their jurisdiction. The campus was
fairly breathless in discussing the
iniquity of a recent raid by the local
police on a room in Battle Building
where they had expected to find gamb-
ling. At first, of course, there was
talk of the University's having lost its
confidence in student government.
However, it finally simmered down to
the fact that the University had had
no concern in the matter — that the Uni-
versity did not use police force to gov-
ern the students, but, on the other
hand, that the campus was in the town-
ship of Chapel Hill and that it had
never been definitely recognized as a
sanctuary in which violators of State
law could take refuge from police in-
terference. It just so happened that
not until recently has the strong arm
of the law in this community been so
Not Interested in Bok Plan
Students of the University of North
Carolina are not interested in either
peace or war. At least, this is indi-
cated by the fact that neither the Bok
Peace Plan nor an R. O. T. C. has
been able to enlist general student sup-
port. In a recent referendum on the
Bok Peace Plan only a little more than
100 votes were polled and these were
divided about evenly on both sides of
Di Cane Missing
Former members of the Dialectic
Society will be shocked to hear that
the gold-headed cane which has, for so
many years, been the symbol of the
authority of the highest office of the
society and which has so successfully
and awe-inspiringly tapped the floor to
calm the disorders of so many student
generations, is in the hands of thieves.
During the recent repairs of the New
West Building, it was necessary to
leave open the office of the Di Society
and the gold-headed cane disappeared.
Liberal rewards and strenuous efforts
have failed, so far, to restore it.
Dan Cupid with Playmakers
The marriage of Mr. Daniel L.
Grant, '21, and Miss Anne Majette,
assistant to the Director of the Caro-
lina Playmakers, brings the record of
"Cupid Koch" to three marriages and
three engagements. In a cold and hard
intellectual community, the Playmakers
bring a glow of life and feeling which
seems to act as a catalytic agent when-
ever the sexes meet in its presence.
Before being edited for public pre-
sentation, a recent number of the
Playmakers' Program carried the fol-
lowing contributions to the literature
of slang. A young and admiring col-
lege boy says to his pretty, widowed
mother, "Mother, you are the rattle-
snake's adnoids." And a little later,
"Mother, you would make a Palm
Olive Soap ad look like a spotted cow."
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT
Two Splendidly Kept Alumni Records
The Review acknowledges, with
many thanks, for the University Li-
brary and the Alumni office, the re-
ceipt of two splendidly preserved
autograph albums which belonged
originally to Woodson Lea Garrett,
and were recently presented to the Li-
brary by Mrs. J. Stanhope Brasfield,
his former wife, now of Demopolis,
Ala. Mr. Garrett was a member of
the class of I860. He was a native of
Chatham county but entered the Uni-
versity from Green county, Alabama.
All told, the two albums contain the
autographs of 219 University students
of the late fifties and early sixties, and
in the majority of instances the service
of the various men in the Confederacy
is noted. Other information given is:
Fraternity membership, name and ad-
dress, date of birth, profession, class,
society membership, and motto. In
quite a number of instances dates of
marriages, deaths, and other important
facts are noted.
The gift of the albums was secured
through A. B. Andrews, '93, of Ral-
eigh, who has throughout the years
placed the University under obligation
to him not only through numerous
gifts which he and his brothers have
made to the Library, but through as-
sistance, as in this instance, in secur-
ing valuable library materials from
A most interesting fact which the
albums make clear is that in the ante-
bellum days the student body was
drawn from all sections of the South.
Of the 219 students whose addresses
are given, 134 were from North Caro-
lina and 85 came from other southern
states as follows: Alabama 16, Florida
2, Georgia 10, Kentucky 2, Louisiana
12, Mississippi 9, South Carolina 6,
Tennessee 19, Texas 3, and Virginia
6. In recent years the undergraduate
part of the student body has been
drawn very largely from North Caro-
lina, but with the rapid development of
the Graduate School, the University
is again drawing extensively from the
sister states of the South.
Book by Curtis, 1900
From the New Orleans Times-Pica-
yune we clip the following paragraph
from an extended notice of 'Architec-
tural Composition," a recent book by
N. C. Curtis, '00, formerly instructor
in drawing at the University, but now
at the head of the School of Architec-
ture of Tulane University. A. T. O.
men, as well as Chapel Hillians gen-
erally, know that the present A. T. O.
house in Chapel Hill was one of the
early architectural designs of Mr.
We believe that quite the most im-
portant volume published from the pen of
a New Orleans author in the past several
years is "Architectural Composition," by
Nathaniel Courtland Curtis, A. I. A., of
the school of architecture of Tulane Uni-
versity. The work bears the imprint of
J. H. Jansen, publisher, of Cleveland, O.,
and was put forth during the present
year. It is a study primarily for the help
of the advanced student. and practicing
architect, one to inspire them and recall
to them the true path should they be
tempted to wander after false and facile
gods. But it is also valuable reading for
those who, without themselves being
architects, feel the thrill of taste and
who are glad to appraise and guide their
own judgments by the tests and tenets
approved by masters of architeconic
Memoirs of Locke Craige
"Memoirs and Speeches of Locke
Craige, Governor of North Carolina,
1913-1917," is the title of a volume re-
cently edited by Miss May F. Jones, of
Asheville, and published by Hackney
and Moale, of that city. A sub-title
conveys the information that the book
is "A History — Political and Other-
wise, from Scrap Book and Old Manu-
scripts." Apart from the interest
which the book has due to the fact
that it contains the story of the splen-
did service rendered the State by Gov-
ernor Craige, the volume is also inter-
esting to University men because of
several selections which it contains
relating to alumni.
Katherine Batts Wins Prize
Katherine G. Batts, of the class of
1922 and known to all recent alumni as
one of the most talented of the Caro-
lina Playmaker troupe, is the winner
of the second prize offered by Forbes
Magazine in its $1000 Banking Service
Contest. Her story, which relates the
activities of the First National Bank
of Tarboro in behalf of the develop-
ment of Edgecombe county, appears in
Forbes for February 2nd. The story
bears evidences of careful study of the
agricultural and banking sitution in
Edgecombe, is illustrated with several
interesting pictures, and presents the
activities of a special section of North
Carolina in a way that has successfully
caught the attention of the out-of-
North Carolina world. The Review
offers its heartiest congratulations to
Miss Batts, not only on receiving a
$200 check, but also for having suc-
cessfully qualified as a press agent for
the Tar Heel State.
Eason as Author
J. Lawrence Eason, '11, M.A., '15,
head of the English Dpeartment of the
State Normal School and Teachers
College at Peru, Nebraska, is joint
author with James Cloyd Bowman, of
the Northern State Normal School at
Marquette, Michigan, of "Composition
and Selected Essays for Normal
Schools and Colleges." The text,
which is intended primarily for stu-
dents of normal schools and colleges,
comprises both rhetoric and selected
essays, and is prepared from the point
of view of instructors who teach
freshmen entering normal schools and
colleges rather than the larger univer-
sities. Harcourt, Brace and Company,
of New York, are the publishers and
the volume is very attractively printed.
Harrington Brings Out Volume
Students of Latin back in the late
nineties, particularly those who studied
Catullus, Propertius and Tibullus
under Karl Pomeroy Harrington, will
be interested to know that Professor
Harrington, now of Wesleyan Univer-
sity at Middletown, Connecticut, has
recently brought out in "Our Debt to
Greece and Rome" series, a volume
entitled "Catullus and his Influence."
The series is edited by G. D. Hadzits,
Professor of Latin at the University
of Pennsylvania but formerly (about
1901-3) a member of the faculty of
Hill Speaks in Atlanta
John Sprunt Hill, '89, member of
the North Carolina Highway Commis-
sion and Chairman of the Trustee
Building Committee of the University,
delivered an address entitled "North
Carolina, A Story of Triumphant De-
mocracy," in Atlanta on January 28.
The occasion of the address was the
annual meeting of the Retail Mer-
chants Association, Mr. Hill having
been invited through the editor of the
Atlanta Constitution. The address has
been printed in pamphlet form.

Ralph Graves Gets Another Big
Ralph H. Graves, '97, who resigned the
Sunday editorship of the New York
Times last year to join the publishing
house of Doubleday, Page and Company,
has been made Managing Editor of The
World's Work. He retains also his
place as head of the Doubleday, Page
Syndicate, which is another department
of the Doubleday firm. Mr. Graves was
graduated from the University in 1897.
and received an A.M. in 1898. He now
lives in Garden City, N. Y.
Drane Succeeds Pratt
Governor Cameron Morrison recently
accepted the resignation of Col. Joseph
Hyde Pratt as state geologist and di-
rector of the geological and economic
survey and appointed as his successor
Brent S. Drane, '02, well-known engi-
neer of Charlotte.
The new director has registered his
approval of the governor's proposal for
the transformation of the bureau into a
department of commerce. Governor
Morrison wants the bureau moved to
Raleigh and its scope of work enlarged
to include the duties that would fall upon
a department of commerce.
Col. Pratt had been director of the
survey for twenty years. He recently
resigned to become president of Western
North Carolina, Inc. In his letter ac-
cepting Colonel Pratt's resignation Gov-
ernor Morrison said in part :
"I am sure that few men in our gen-
eration have rendered this State greater
service than you have during the nine-
teen years you have filled the position
from which you have just resigned.
"I deeply appreciate your great ser-
vices myself, and I am sure the intelli-
gent citizenship of the State does also.
The studies and surveys you have made
of the State's resources will continue to
be a source of strength and help to the
State for many years to come."
Nat Gooding Promoted
Under the title of "Deserved Promo-
tion," The New Bernian, morning daily
of New Bern, carried the following edi-
torial in a recent issue :
Mr. Nathan G. Gooding, who has been
connected with The New Bernian for a
long while as City Editor, has been pro-
moted to the position of Managing Edi-
tor and assumes his duties at once. '
Mr. Gooding has been a valued asset
to The New Bernian since he became
connected with the paper, and in his
new position he will have a wider scope

and will be responsible for any and all
articles that are contained in its columns.
The editorial department of the paper
will be in charge of Mr. Gooding also,
but he will be assisted by Mr. J. B. Daw-
son, the owner and business manager.
Mr. Crumpler will continue as adver-
tising solicitor and telegraph editor.
Editor's Note : Nat Gooding was
graduated in 1919. He was business
manager of the Tar Heel, debater and
prominent student leader.
Encouragement That Helps
The Review has received the following
letter from D. M. Phillips, '08, superin-
tendent of the refining department of
the Texas Company, of Riverside, Tex. :
I have just read, with an unusual
amount of interest, the January issue of
The Alumni Review. It appeals to
me as containing more matter of in-
structive interest than ever before, and
I believe that it is becoming interestingly
valuable to the University as well as to
In particular the article on page 147,
"McKay's Impressions of Europe," is
one of the ablest and most interesting dis-
cussions of foreign conditions that I have
yet seen. His terse statement of what
ails the United States today is surpris-
ingly to the point and is one that I think
should receive the widest circulation
among constructive documents.
The other matter of particular interest
is the construction of a stadium. I am
too far from Chapel Hill to take a direct
personal interest in this, but it is some-
thing that should be pushed hard to a
satisfactory conclusion. The stadium, by
all means, should be built at Chapel Hill
and should be big enough for the next

satisfied than we are now."
Reynolds Gets Advice
Since his return from his trip around
the world, Robert R. Reynolds, '06, can-
didate for lieutenant-governor of North
Carolina, subject to the coming Demo-
cratic primary, has been in receipt of
scores of letters from people from all
parts of America. His photographs were
published in many papers in the country
and nearly all of them give advice on
how he should conduct his campaign
One aged resident of Ohio wrote him
and asked if he cast his vote in Ohio,
would the ballot be valid at the North
Carolina polls. Another suggested that
he name a telephone committee of women
in each town in the State and that on
the day of the election, they call every
voter and urge that they vote for him.
From Harry Howell
From Harry Howell, of Raleigh, the
Review has received the following letter :
"I appreciate the generosity of your
desire that I continue to serve on the
advisory editorial board of the Alumni
Review. I admit that I felt flattered by
the original invitation, and that feeling
is deepened by the repetition, especially
in view of my scant service. I am hon-
ored to be connected in any way with the
activities of the University.
"One ambition at least has been rea-
lized. I have two boys 'on the Hill,' as
we used to say ; and I begin to feel a
quickened interest in Carolina affairs, if
it was possible to be quickened. Ano-
other will be ready in two years, with
two more boys to follow. In that re-
spect, at any rate, I am trying to do my
duty by the University."
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
McAlester in Oklahoma
How W. C. McAlester, '95, became
the "power behind the throne" in the
recent political uprising in Oklahoma is
told in an article on "The Leaders of
the Oklahoma Revolution," appearing in
Harlow's Weekly, a journal of comment
published in Oklahoma City. The article
says in part :
Governor Jack Walton had announced
that the election was illegal and that he
would prevent it from being held by the
use of force if necessary. The militia
was still mobilized throughout the state.
The governor announced that he had
22 000 minute men who would be used
for the purpose of preventing any officer
from attempting to hold this election.
The state was in the greatest excitement
and the deepest uncertainty.
Nobody knew whether the election
would be held or not. The decision as to
what was to be done must be made by
W. C. McAlester, Secretary of the State
Election Board. He had made prepara-
tion for the election by having the sup-
plies printed and the election officers
of the state merely awaited his instruc-
tions as to what to do. At the time for
distributing the supplies the holding of
the election seemed almost impossible.
The situation was legally uncertain, the
personal hazard involved in the decision
was undeniable. Everyone wondered
what McAlester would do.
McAlester acted in accordance with
his long record of fine public service.
He needed only to be advised as to what
the law was. If the election was truly
legal, it would be held. Again the prob-
lem went up to George Short. Those
active men who were eagerly following
the matter up found Short at a social
gathering on Friday night. He advised
them of the threats that had been made
against his personal safety; thought the
matter over, entered the automobile with
them and drove to where McAlester 1 was
being kept in seclusion lest he be found
for the service of additional legal pro-
cess, advised him that the election was
legal and that he would maintain it.
McAlester called every election officer
in the state as rapidly as telephone and
telegraphic connections could b e made
with them, instructed them to hold the
election and to resist all interference,
calling upon the officers for protection
and aid in holding the election, calling
attention to the serious criminal penalties
attached to interference with an election.

This election of course broke the whole

boy takes after "Bull" Thompson and
insists on making a rough house with
his bats and balls. He says he pitched
for the Blue Ridge League last summer
and trys to convince every one that
he fanned 29 men in one inning and lost
all the balls in the second ; forcing the
umpire to call for time in which to go
to town for more balls. Here's hoping
that baseball will be the national game
about fifteen years hence; for I want this
young sprout of mine to pitch just one
season for the Carolina team.
I congratulate the editors of The Re-
view on the fine showing they are mak-
ing, and hereby make a resolve to give
them better support in the future.

McManis and Mclver Step Up
President Gerard Swope of the General
Electric Company has called upon two
Carolina men to undertake important re-
sp insibilities in connection with the com-
's broadened advertising and sales
program of 1924. They are T. J. Mc-
Manis, '09, and J. W. Mclver, '13.
Mr. Swope has moved McManis from
his important post at the head of the
Publicity Department which he had cre-
ated at the Edison Lamp Works at Har-
rison, N. J., and has appointed him As-
sistant Manager of the Publicity De-
partment of the General Electric Com-
pany at Schenectady, N. Y.. where he
will have executive supervision over the
sales and institutional advertising of one
(if the world's greatest corporations.
McManis served as editor and business
manager of the Yackety-Yack while at
the Hill and won an appointment as in-
structor in Physics under the late Prof.
Joshua Gore. In 1910 he enrolled as ap-
prentice salesman in the Edison Lamp
Works. At that time the publicity and
advertising activity of the company was
exceedingly limited. He saw the oppor-
tunity for development and when the
lamp publicity effort started, he organ-
ized the publicity department and as
manager rapidly developed advertising
campaigns which were noted for the
high quality of their appeal as well as
for their close alliance with other phases
of sales effort.
J. W. Mclver was waiting with a
friendly eye on McManis' job and his
appointment as McManis' successor as
head of the Publicity Department of the
Edison Lamp Works was announced at
the same time as that of McManis'. Mc-
lver, an electrical engineering graduate
of the University, joined the Publicity
Department under McManis in 1916. A
year later he enlisted in the Marines and
came out of the war a captain through
promotion. Rejoining the Publicity De-
partment at Harrison, he became Assis-
tant Manager, displaying such capacity
that there was no question of his ap-
pointment to the Managership, left vacant
by McManis' elevation.

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

Must Be a Mistake
E. G. Joyner, '16, secretary and treas-
urer of the Carolina Building Supply,
Inc., of Greenville, N. C, offers the fol-
lowing correction :
"In reading the last issue of The Re-
view I notice that you have given credit
to whom no credit is due, and I fear
that in doing so you have robbed some
one to whom credit is due.
"I was very much amused to see from
your class news that I am the proud
daddy of two bouncing girls, for al-
though I have been traveling in double
harness since October, 1917, there are
still just the missus and me present and

News From Maine
Gregory Graham, '18, who has been in
Portland, Me., for nearly two years as
division manager of the R. J. Reynolds
Tobacco Company, writes : The tell-tale
gray is creeping up around the temples,
but I have not yet been as fortunate as
some of my classmates ; I'm not mar-
ried. However. I am going to keep on
I sometimes wonder if autobiography
is not the sublime expression of egotism.
Instead of about myself I would rather
tell you of the high regard others have
for our wonderful state, and its equally
fine products. North Carolina has be-
come, by virtue of her products and the
integrity of her manufacturers and busi-
ness men, a synonym for progress. Noth-
ing but praise and admiration comes
from the lips of those thinking men who
know and understand progress, lasting
development, and the opportunity for
North Carolina holds for those who
wish it the opportunity to grow with the
state and with its established firms.
Those opportunities can best be filled by
men of the University who are there be-
cause our industries flourish.
This is an old story to most, I'm sure,
but reiteration shouldn't hurt.
