Every idle stream or waterfall that is put to work, and furnishes light and power to homes and factories 
many miles away, means a saving in coal and, what is more important, a saving in human energies. 



How far can a waterfall fall? 



In 1891 General Electric Company 
equipped an electric plant at San An- 
tonio Canyon, for transmitting elec- 
tric power 28 miles— a record. 

Today electric power from a water- 
fall is carried ten times as far. 

Some day remote farm homes will 
have electricity and streams that now 
yield nothing will be yielding power 
and light. 




Improvements in elec- 
trical development do 
not "happen". They 
come from the tireless 
research of trained

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- 
ation ? 

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. 

Cordially yours, 

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 
education. 

DDD 

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 
quite limited. 

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- 
nent endowment. 

DDD 

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- 
ticular situation. 

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. 

□ □ □ 
Woodrow Wilson 

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. 

DDD 

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 
University. 

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

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 
collegiate training. 



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 
step taken. 

□ □ □ 

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. 



PLAYMAKERS HAVE 

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 
under way. 

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. 



EXTENSION CLASSES 

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 
last year. 



An indoor track carnival in which 
teams from the University dormitories 
and fraternities will take part will be 
held in Chapel Hill this month as part 
of the intra-mural sports program in- 
augurated this year. This carnival is 
expected to prove a great incentive to 
spring track prospects. 



New Student Comic 

Students in the University are plan- 
ning to put out a new comic magazine 
to be called "The Buccaneer." There 
will be two numbers this year, at 
Easter and Commencement. Earl 
Hartsell, of Stanfield, is editor and 
Charles W. Gold, of Greensboro, is 
business manager. The new maga- 
zine has the sanction of University 
authorities. 



Mme. Julia Claussen, Metropolitan 
opera star and one of the world's 
greatest mezzo-sopranos, sang in 
Chapel Hill on February 4. 



Dr. W. C. Coker, Kenan professor 
of botany, has lent the University li-

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 
and Vance. 

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 
REUNION 

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 
night. 

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 
creative helpfulness. 

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 
be printed just before Commencement. 
And don't forget the politics you learned 
here twenty-nine years ago, for the elec- 
tion of an entirely new set of class offi- 
cers is in order. 

We were about to omit the price for 
all this prgoram ; $2.50 for the prepara- 
tion of the class book and general prepa- 
rations for the home-coming, and $2.50 
per plate for the feast Monday night — a 
$5 check, sent to L. R. Wilson for the 
double purpose. Additional plates for 
members of the family $2.50 each. 

L. R. Wilson, for the Committee. 



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. 
W. Umstead, Jr., chairman, Dur- 
ham; O. J, Coffin and J. H. Man- 
ning, Raleigh; K. D. Battle, Rocky 
Mount, and C. W. Tillett, Jr., Char- 
lotte. 

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- 
sion to reproduce the Canova statute of 
Washington, one of the world's most 
famous statutes. 

An investigation will be conducted at 
once into the cost of reproducing the 
statute, one member of the commission 
going to Europe this summer for the 
purpose of acquiring estimates of the ex- 
penditure necessary. 

The general assembly, at its session in 
1923. passed an act creating a commis- 
sion of three, known as "Commission on 
Reproduction of the Canova Statute of 
Washington," to collect information and 
report to the next General Assembly as 
to the advisability of undertaking to have 
the Canova statute reproduced. 

Mr. Everett, Mr. Connor and State 
Senator Walter Woodson, of Salisbury, 
constitute the commission. 



M. Robins Honored 

Marmaduke Robins, '08, of Greensboro 
was elected president of the Greensboro 
Insurance Exchange, Inc., to succeed Phil 
R. Carlton, at the first annual meeting of 
the exchange since its incorporation, held 
in January. Thirty-two persons were 
present. 



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.

WRESTLING SEASON 

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 
into the matches was: Schwartz. 119 
pound class; Hagan, 129: Mathewson 
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- 
ager of the team, with Danford Bur- 
roughs and Dennis Madry, as assist- 
ants. 

The record of the season follows : 

N.C. 3— Trinity 18 

N. C. 13— Virginia 3 

N.C. IS— Washington & Lee 16 

N. C. 5— V. M. 1 13

TRACK PROSPECTS GOOD 

SPRING PRACTICE BEGINS 

An all-University meet of candidates 
for this season's varsity and freshman 
track teams, in the new indoor sports 
building, has given Bob etzer a pretty 
good line on available material and he 
is optimistic. 

The candidates have been transferred 
to the outdoor board track and cinder 
path. The indoor track will be at 
their disposal whenever rain happens 
to interfere. 

Going through daily workouts are a 
number of letetr men and others who 
look good. Coach Fetzer is anxious 
to increase the squad, however. 

The letter men out this season are : 
O. M. Abernethy, captain, O. L. 
Giersch, X. T. Keel, A. D. Milstead, 
L. H. Moore, C. C. Poindexter, J. R. 
Purser, M. D. anson, R. L. Ranson, 
A. M. Scarborough, G. F. SeyfTert, C. 
H. Yarborough, T. B. Smiley. 

Manager Aubrey Shackell is work- 
ing on a schedule that promises to give 
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-

May 10. The complete schedule is to 
be announced later. 



Prof. W. S. Bernard, head of the

piano by Mrs. P. H. Winston, who 
played interpretative music especially 
composed for the poem by Richard 
Strauss, formerly a concert manager 
of the Imperial theater in Berlin. Pro- 
fessor Bernard usually gives this read- 
ing once each year and is always heard 
by as many as can crowd into the hall. 
Both he and Mrs. Winston deserved 
and won a hearty ovation.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



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 
years. 

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 
year. 

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 
131. 

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 
birth. 

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. 



COMPLETE RECORD 
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 
520 by her opponents: 

33 Durham Elks 20 

32 Charlotte "Y" 29

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 
the time. 



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 
ahead. 

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 
for Atlanta. 

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 
any playing. 

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 
second half. 

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. 

Carolina's Sportsmanship 

Then came the final game with the 
Alabama quint which held Carolina to 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



205 



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 
4,000 spectators. 

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 
'16. 

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 
weren't walking. 

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. 



aid (abov 
careers. 



Carmichael end 



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.

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- 
tion. 

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 
garage adjoining on the left and sev- 
eral houses, among them Mrs. Daniel's, 
the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and 
The Coop, were saved only by the 
valiant efforts of the Chapel Hill fire- 
men, assisted by a company from Dur- 
ham. 

The loss is estimated at $35,000 with 
no insurance. The buildings were 
owned by S. J. Brockwell. The theatre 
was being rented by W. S. Roberson, 
mayor of Chapel Hill. Mr. Brockwell 
plans to rebuild. Meanwhile pictures 
are being shown in Gerrard Hall 
under the auspices of the University 
Y. M. C. A. 



President Chase and Dr. William de 
B. MacNider attended a meeting of 
the Trit-State Medical Society recently 
in Greenville, S. C. Dr. Chase ad- 
dressed the society on the need of 
medical aducation and Mr. MacNider 
discussed the results of his laboratory 
experiments. 



Mrs. M. H. Stacy, Dean of Women, 
went to Chicago recently to attend a 
national meeting of the deans of 
women in colleges and universities.

HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL 



Freshmen Defeat Sophs in Snowball Fight — Campus Activities 
and Spirit Being Unified — Chapel Hill Police Active 



"Now, in conclusion, fellows I 
would suggest that you don't drag any 
men out of their rooms." Place, 
freshman chapel ; time, chapel period 
the morning of the snow; speaker, 
President J. A. Williams of the Fresh- 
man Class. Yes sir, he was actually 
urging his classmates not to drag any 
sophs out into the snow, and they 
made good on it, too. At four o'clock 
the snow about the well was black with 
the hordes of '27. They sang "Hark 
the Sound" with great fervor, split 
Carolina for '27 and flung out their 
pennant from the top of the University 
flag pole. Then, stealing around the 
north end of the Alumni Building, 
came the sophs and juniors and even 
seniors, executing a flank movement, 
coming at the enemy from behind Old 
West. A silent column with coats 
around their ears marched without 
even throwing a snowball, to the flag 
pole and removed the disgraceful pen- 
nant. 

The freshmen flared up and snow 
flew until the air was full. Steadily 
the upperclassmen were forced back 
until a retreat became a rout and '27 
held the field in triumph. The victors 
then showed their sportsmanship by 
giving a hearty cheer for '26, and 
snowballing was over for the year. 
Well, it was a fine sort of wholesome 
scrap, but — how the times have 
changed ! 

The Graham Memorial 

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 
paign moved off witli a rush. After 
all these years of waiting, frustrated 
by circumstances, the building is, at 
last, under construction and the pres- 
ent student generation will participate 
in its privileges. 

Keen for Intra-Mural Sports 
There is something about athletic 
competition that teaches the ethics of 
good sportsmanship. It is. then, a 
— F. F. B., '16. 



wholesome condition when all the fra- 
ternities and dormitories are enrolled 
in the basketball league which calls for 
two such contests a week. D. K. E.'s 
vs. A. T. O.'s ; Smith vs. Carr, and 
many other occasions induced by this 
sort of program have absorbed the in- 
terests and energies and loyalties of 
some 400 or 500 men all this winter 
quarter and in spite of mud and rain 
and cold, the new indoor field has rung 
with the whistles and shouts of some 
five and six simultaneous games. Men 
who have taken no part in athletics 
and no exercise other than the "mas- 
tication of the muslin" since their 
freshman year, are now noticable for 
their blooming cheeks and bulging 
muscle. 

Was This Your Experience? 

A sophomore came in the other day 
and asked for permission to carry five 
courses next quarter, since he had 
tried four this quarter and found the 
work too light. His comment was 
that the University courses must have 
been planned for either children or 
imbeciles. 

I wonder if any alumnus can recall 
having had this experience. 

Bible Study Groups 

One Wednesday night recently the 
Old South bell clanged forth at 9:30 
in violent tones. A member of the 
University administration, with lurid 
visions of bonfires, hazing parties and 
riots, rushed to the phone to inquire 
what was the cause of the bell at that 
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 
so good. 

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 



208 



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 
University ring. 

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- 
tory E. 

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, 

DUM DUM. 

Ed. note— Dear DUM DUM: 
Much obliged, Your truly, 

THE SHRIEK. 

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 
intra-mural sports. 

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 
ambitious. 

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 
the question. 

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 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 
other sources. 

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. 
Curtis. 

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 
design. 



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 
this University. 



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.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



WITH THE ALUMNI HERE AND THERE 



Ralph Graves Gets Another Big 
Promotion 

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 
tn further improve the paper and increase 
its usefulness to the large number of 
folks who rely on The New Bernian for 
their news. 

He will have charge of all matters 
pertaining to the news end of the paper,

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. : 
Dear sir: 

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 
the alumni. 

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 
25 years. 



With best regards and best wishes for 
the continued improvement in The Re- 
view. 

Likes Home Town Best 

Arthur Spaugh, '20, who now lives at 
1903 South Main Street, Winston-Salem, 
sends his subscription to The Review. 
accompanied by the following message : 

"I am decidedly unmarried and have 
not even a lot around which to run a 
fence, that is speaking figuratively. 

"Have been in the cotton milling busi- 
ness for several years, first in Virginia, 
and more lately in Winston-Salem. As 
Harry Lauder says, T love my home 
town best,' but I feel almost as if Chapel 
Hill were that home town, for the long- 
ing to again become a part of the old 
place often strikes me. 

"I congratulate your entire staff on the 
excellent reading matter now being pub- 
lished in The Alumni Review. Give us 
more of it, and we shall be even more 
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 
properly. 

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."

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. 
distributed the supplies and closed the 
incident. 

This election of course broke the whole 
situation. The governor gave up and did 
n. it even wait for the assembling of the 
legislature under tin- new law, but him- 
sel f called them into session. 

Candidate for Baseball Team 

D. W. Cranford, '15, cashier of the 
Peoples Bank of Burnsville, N. C., 
writes : 

I have a little girl six and a boy three. 
They both take after their mother in 







A \Y McAlester, '95, who as Sec- 
retary . I tin Si.it.- Election Hoard of 
Oklahoma recently defied Governor 
fack Walton and called an election. 



looks; in disposition the girl takes after 
me. and her disposition is rotten. The 
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. 

News From Hawaii 

Carey L. Harrington, '19, now in Hana 
Mini, Hawaiian Islands, writes: 

\m enclosing the alumni circular and 
thought perhaps you would like to hear 
about a lonesome frater. Am now try- 
ing to raise a stake by substituting for 
our Dr. Lichtenfela who is now in the 
east doing a P.G. course or something. 

It pays fairly well. The contract j lis 
cover the Kaeluku Sugar Co., Haiku 
Fruit and Packing Co., county physician 
and agent for the Board of Health. 
Sounds like a great d'-al of work, but 
the fact is I never had an easier posi 
tion in all my life. 

Hana is one of the prettiest places God 
ever made and also one of the lone- 
somest. It lies on the slopes of Halea 
kala, the largest extinct volcano, Fa 
the east and the sea. On Haleakala in 
the winter months oni i now but in 
Hana the average temperature is 70 de 
i- i -pleasant all the time. Hon. lulu 
is warm. I . 

I want to tell you that if you evei 
travel by all means include a visit to 
these islands. They are rightly called 



"Paradise of the Pacific." The active 
volcano, Kilanea, on Hawaii, is alone 
worth the trip. 

Give my best to all the boys and 
friends we know in common. 

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. 

The University His Hobby 
Leslie Weil, '95, is a man of action 

who speaks little and writes less. As a 
typical illustration of which fact the fol- 
lowing terse reply in response t.. the 

"YellOW Man" slip Stilt OUt by the 
Vlumni Secretary is offered: 

'I am till a member of the linn of 
II, Weil and Brothers, of Goldsboro, but 
my main job is recruiting students for 
the University and X. ('. C. W, My 
hobby is U. N. C, no matter where I 
am."

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 
accounted for. 

"With best wishes for the continued 
success of The Review."

been confused. Will the other Mr. Joy- 
ner speak up and get his just dues,

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 
trying. 



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 
sound expansion. 

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.
