^^And I am with the doers^^ 

Time was when war called the ambitious 
and offered life's great rewards. But the 
captains and the kings passed. The endur- 
ing conquests of our times are being made 
in industry. 

Through the wide doors of General Elec- 
tric plants and offices an army of 100,000 
men and women moves every day. Each of 
them, looking back over the road, can say: 

"Things worth while are being done in my 
lifetime, and / am with the doers."

Chapel Talk by President Chase 

You are familiar with the old saying that truth is 
mighty and will prevail. The question of just how 
truth is to be made to prevail is one that is exercising 
the minds of a great many people nowadays, and there 
are two very different theories about it. I can illustrate 
the first theory by a quotation from the German philos- 
opher Fichte. Here is what he says : "To compel 
men to a state of right, to put them under the yoke of 
right by force, is not only the right but the sacred duty 
of every man who has the knowledge and power." 

Fichte was a Prussian, and he was stating an atti- 
tude that I suppose we would all agree is a typical 
Prussian attitude. His point is, as I understand it, that 
if you believe a thing is right or true, it is your busi- 
ness to use all the force at hand to see to it that other 
people come to your way of thinking about it; that you 
must conquer men's minds with all the force of con- 
stituted authority, if that is necessary, and suppress 
everybody who has a different idea of right and truth 
from yours. It is the autocratic view of making truth 

1 want to set over against this quotation from Fichte 
a statement from that great interpreter of democracy, 
Thomas Jefferson. I think it is one of the finest state- 
ments about intellectual freedom that has ever been 
made, and it is this: "I have sworn upon the altar of 
God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny 
over the mind of man." In other words, Jefferson says 
that Fichte is wrong, and that as he conceives it de- 
mocracy has no business tyrannizing over men's think- 
ing any more than it has tyrannizing over their lives. 
Jefferson was just as much interested in making truth 
prevail in the world as was Fichte, but his idea of how 
to go about it was altogether different. Here is what 
he says about it : "Truth will do well enough if left 

to shift for itself. It has no need of force to procure 
entrance into the minds of men. Truth is a proper 
and sufficient antagonist to error." I believe that Jef- 
ferson was right, and that he stated the American point 
of view, and the University point of view, when he said 
that truth will prevail through her own intrinsic power, 
without any machinery of conquest and of suppression 
of tyranny. I think it is the business of the University 
to stand for that point of view. 

Now I want to test this point of view a little on one 
side of University life that has been giving some people 
a great deal of concern. A good many articles have 
been written lately, and a good many speeches have 
been made, that have taken as their text the assumption 
that the colleges and universities of the country are 
hotbeds of radicalism. These are interesting state- 
ments, and I think it is very interesting to know what 
a real radical thinks about them. There has recently 
appeared a book called "The Goosestep'' that was 
written by Upton Sinclair, and I suppose that every- 
body, including Sinclair himself, would agree that he 
is a thoroughgoing radical. This book, which was 
written by a radical from a radical point of view, has 
as its central leaching that higher education in America 
has been "stolen by a bandit crew which is using it 
deliberately for its own ends." "Our higher educa- 
tional system," he says, "is today in the hands of its 
last organized enemy, which is class greed and selfish- 
ness, based on economic privilege." In other words, 
Upton Sinclair is preaching that the colleges and uni- 
versities of the country are in the hands of what Roose- 
velt used to call "malefactors of great wealth," who 
are using them to send men out into society to per- 
petuate their own supremacy. 

You see, if you put these two views side by side, 
that both groups agree that higher education is in the 



hands of the enemy, but each side is convinced that the 
other fellow has got hold of it and is using it for vari- 
ous purposes of his own. 

The point is just this, that neither group has the 
slightest idea of what a university is for. It is not the 
business of a university to tyrannize over the minds of 
men, to take their minds and shut them up within the 
limits of a particular doctrine and a particular system 
that is forced on them. That, I think, is just the 
trouble ; each group thinks that because the universities 
of the country are not doing this they are not doing 
their duty, and that they are in the hands of the enemy. 
Any university that is worth anything at all has an 
intellectual ideal, and that ideal lias to do with truth, 
and with the opening of men's minds to seek the truth. 
If the University does anything, it ought so to discipline 
men's minds that they can go into the business of think- 
ing for themselves. It ought to teach them regard for 
facts and evidence, and it ought to lift them above the 
danger of mob-thinking. Mob-thinking is every bit as 
dangerous and as fatal to democracy as is mob-action, 
and a man's thoughts are just as subject to the mob 
spirit as is his conduct, if he has not developed such 
intellectual stability that he can weigh facts and seek 
truth for himself. The man whose mind has been 
trained to the point that he does not succumb to mob- 
thinking is not going to rush into radicalism because it 

makes an impulsive and sensational appeal to him ; nor, 
on the other hand, is he going to fall into the equally 
dangerous assumption that everybody who does not 
agree with him in everything is a Bolshevist and a 
danger to American institutions. He is not going ,to 
try to explain everything that goes wrong as being due 
to the wicked designs of the capitalists ; nor is he going 
to see an emissary of Soviet Russia hiding behind every 
tree. Thinking on that level is mob-thinking, and it is 
fundamentally contrary to the kind of thinking that is 
needed if American institutions are to be perpetuated 
and built up, and if they are to undergo, without unnec- 
essary shock and friction, that process of constant re- 
interpretation which the President of the United States 
has recently pointed out must go on to meet the needs 
of changed conditions in a democracy. 

And now to sum it all up, it is the business of a 
university to stand for truth, and for so opening men's 
minds and enlarging their horizons that they are in a 
position to seek truth for themselves. The University 
has only one possible position to take in such a matter 
as this, and that is the position that was taken by Jef- 
ferson, when he said in that fine statement of his that 
I repeat once more, "I have sworn upon the altar of 
God eternal hostility to every form of tyranny over the 
mind of man." 


Is Chapel Maintained? 

Is the ancient and honorable institution of Chapel 
maintained ? 

Although the fornj of the question may seem flip- 
pant, that is not the spirit in which The Review asks iii. 

On the contrary, we "ask it sincerely, and inasmuch 
as it is a question frequently raised by alumni who 
have considered chapel one of the principal means of 
molding University spirit and shaping University 
ideals, we answer it in two ways. 

First of all we answer it through the medium of a 
direct declarative sentence. Chapel is maintained. 
Three times a week the Freshman Class assembles in 
Memorial Hall for regular chapel exercises, and twice 
a week, the three lower classes, together with a num- 
ber of seniors and professional students in addition, fill 
the hall to the limit of its present seating capacity. We 
say present seating capacity, because if opera chairs 
were substituted for the heavy benches now used, the 
capacity could be materially increased. 

In the second place, we answer it concretely through 
the medium of a chapel talk recently made by President 
Chase. We reproduce it here not only as a concrete 
evidence that chapel is maintained, but for the further 
purpose of showing that the University, while devoting 
many of its energies to the task of physical expansion 
and the handling of rapidly increasing numbers, is not 
neglecting the cultivation of ideals that are fine and 
high. In spite of the confusion incident to physical and 

numerical growth, the University is sticking tenaciously 
and effectively to its supreme task, the training of men. 
And to this end it is utilizing chapel as one of the most 
effective agencies at its command.

A Spirit That Is Vital 

Within the past month all alumni have received two 
copies of the Tar Heel in which has been reflected the 
tremendous interest taken by the student body in the 
local campaign for the Graham Memorial Building. 

The Review calls attention to the activities of the 
campus in this undertaking not merely to report that a 
total of approximately $302,000 has been subscribed 
to the building fund, important and gratifying as that 
has been, but to point out an entirely different and even 
more important thing which the ahmini in their read- 
ing of the two issues may have altogether failed to 

That thing, if The Review senses it correctly, is 
that the entire campus has seized the opportunity of 
working for the erection of the building not as an 
opportunity for assisting in building a building, but 
rather as an opportunity for the campus to get together 
in a big undertaking which of itself is a unifying, 
spiritualizing force and from which great benefit can 
be derived here and now as well as from the building 




A few years ago the Carolina spirit was adjudged 
dead by some nameless students and was ostensibly in- 
terred with appropriate headstone and flowers just 
northwest of Person Hall. The campaign for what 
the building is to stand for and the unification of stu- 
dent spirit and activities growing out of it prove con- 
vincingly, however, that the Carolina spirit not only is 
not dead, but that in what is now being done and what 
is being planned for the future, it is, if anything, more 
vital than ever.

Alma Mater's Out-door Pantheon 

An occasion in which the University justly felt a 
profound pride was that of the unveling of the bronze 
figure of Charles Brantley Aycock. '80. in Raleigh on 
Thursday, March 13, in the presence of thousands of 
Xorth Carolinians who were gathered to pay tribute to 
the State's great "Educational Governor.'' 

Among the causes for the particular pride experi- 
enced by Alma Mater in the ceremonial was the con- 
sciousness that through her son she had contributed in 
large measure to the universality of educational op- 
portunity now prevailing in North Carolina, and that 
through Edwin Anderson Alderman. '82 , Josephus 
Daniels, '87, and J. Yadkin Joyner, '81, colleagues of 
Aycock and speakers connected with the ceremonial, 
she had still further extended the scope of her benefi- 
cent service. 

There were many things about the ceremonial which 
strongly appealed to The Review of which it will suf- 
fice to mention two. From the far distant day in 1799 
when Archibald DeBow Murphey graduated in the first 
class ever sent out by the University to this hour. Alma 
Mater has steadily furnished to North Carolina ouf- 
standing educational leadership. Likewise, the out- 
door Pantheon set up in the Capitol Square in Raleigh 
to which President Alderman referred as to him a per- 
sonal Pantheon of old and dear friends, is, by reason 
of the figures of Vance and Mclver and Aycock appear- 
ing there, her very own. 


Asheville and Durham Alumni Start Something 

Two alumni movements were gotten under way in 
March which seem to The Review to be unusually 
significant. We refer to the proposal made by the 
alumni of Asheville to establish an Asheville Club for 
the use of alumni living in western North Carolina, 
particularly, as well as of alumni who may be visiting 
in Asheville temporarily; and to the determination of 
the Durham Alumni Association to serve as a relay sta- 
tion for the dissemination of information concerning 
the alumni headquarters at Chapel Hill. 

The opening of club rooms at Asheville for the con- 
venience of the alumni of the western section of the 
State and of alumni who visit the moimtains during the 
summer and at other periods of the year, will undoubt- 
edly meet with the approval and support of the alumni 
generally and should prove very instrumental in the 

development of a more distinct alumni consciousness. 
Similarly, the Durham alumni, through their nearness 
to the campus, can keep in intimate touch with all that 
goes on both upon the campus and within alumni head- 
quarters, and can be of invaluable assistance to the 
alumni generally in keeping them in close touch with all 
that concerns alumni participation in akmmi affairs. 

The Review does not know to whom specific com- 
mendation is due for the inauguration of the two 
undertakings, but it does know that if the ideas are 
successfully carried into eflfect the University and the 
alumni alike will both be greatly benefited.

Get Ready for the Election 

Secretary Grant, of the General Alumni Association, 
and his colleagues of the directorate, have just cause 
for pride in the evidence of increased alumni interest 
as shown in the nominations for alumni offices appear- 
ing on other pages of this issue. 

Never in the history of the University has the elec- 
tion of the men who are to direct the affairs of the 
Association been planned for as carefully as it has been 
in this instance, and from the election thus planned 
results of a highly beneficial nature should be experi- 

Without further comment, other than to say that 
printed ballots will be mailed later to all alumni, we 
urge all readers of The Review to turn to the list of 
nominees, to study the records of their achievement, 
and to prepare to vote for an official group that can be 
counted on to spend time and thought and energy in 
making the work of the Association a go. 

There is another word we are prompted to say. If 
the constitution were strictly followed, it would be nec- 
essary for every one voting to pay an annual dues fee 
of $1.00. But, to employ a very doubtful sentiment, 
"What is the constitution among friends?", particularly 
when those friends haven't thought about their relation- 
ship to alumni activities sufficiently to realize that if 
the Alumni Association is to do things that are worth 
while they (not someone else) must pay not onlv $1.00, 
but $5.00 or $10.00 or $25.00 or $50.00 or $100 or 
whatever they can for well conceived, effective alumni 

In the present instance the rules are suspended, the 
whole alumni group is urged to vote, and, it is likewise 
reminded of the privilege it has of volunteering sub- 
stantial financial assistance to the Association. 


Mark the Days 

Commencement, 1924, is only sixty days distant. For 
those classes which hold special reunions from June 8 
to 11, the way in which their members return or fail 
to return to the Hill makes or unmakes the pros])ective 

For this reason, and for the further reason that your 
jjresence on the campus will be a delight to yourself, 
your classmates, and particularly to your Alma Mater, 
we urge you to mark the days in your calendar now. 




Annual Reports of President Chase and Heads of Various Departments 

Tell of Remarkable Progress 

The annual reports of President 
Chase and of the heads of the various 
departments of the University empha- 
size one point above all others, the 
keynote of which is struck by Presi- 
dent Chase when he says, "The Uni- 
versity is no longer merely an under- 
graduate college — though it includes 
the undergraduate college" — it has 
come to be an institution with the com- 
plex functions and tasks of a large 
modern university. 

The University's growth during the 
past year has set a new pace. It now 
has a student body of approximately 
2,200, an increase of nearly 300 over 
last year, 60 per cent, of whom are 
enrolled in other than liberal arts 
courses. The faculty numbers 160, or- 
ganized into 19 college departments 
and nine special schools. There has 
been an increased enrollment in all de- 
partments. Registration in the College 
of Liberal Arts, for instance, has gone 
25 per cent, beyond that of last year. 
The Graduate School enrolled 329 as 
compared with a total of 274 the pre- 
ceding year. More than 1,300 were 
enrolled in correspondence and exten- 
sion courses. 

College of Liberal Arts 

The report of Dr. James F. Royster, 
Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, 
tends to dispel the notion of many folk 
that college interest in general culture 
is on the wane in the face of bitter 
competition by "bread and butter" 
courses. As a basis for which the re- 
port cites the fact that while the in- 
crease in the enrolment of the student 
body this year was 15 per cent, the in- 
crease in the College of Liberal Arts 
was 25 per cent, over last year. The 
total registration for liberal arts is 
850, or approximately two-fifths of the 
student body. 

"Present social and economic condi- 
tions are, in part responsible for tlie 
situation," Dean Royster writes. "In 
times of prosperity and ease of living, 
students are able to afford tlie time to 
undertake a general education or to 
follow 'liberal courses' ; they have the 
means and time to look about them be- 
fore they must decide upon a choice 
of profession or trade. At the same 
time the demand for workers in busi- 
ness and industrv is so great that no 



One of the most interesting 
points emphasized in the report of 
President Chase is that "the com- 
mon culture that distinguished the 
group from which college students 
of a century ago came, and to 
which they returned, is a thing of 
the past." President Chase finds 
that today there exists neither a 
restricted group nor a common cul- 

"College education," he says, 
"has become a part of the demo- 
cratic tradition of America — every 
type of home within the borders of 
the State finds representation of 
such a campus as that of the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina. The life 
for which the college fitted more 
than a century ago has itself given 
way to something infinitely more 
varied and complex; educated men, 
aside from the few fundamentals, 
no longer share intellectual pos- 
sessions in common — the common 
culture of the past has broken up 
of its own weight into wide range 
of specialties as addition after 
addition has been made to its 

"The task of adjusting men to 
this racial heritage has become a 
task bewildering in its infinite com- 
plications. A century ago it was 
the task of colleges to fit small 
groups of students coming largely 
from a single social group of the 
population, to enter a world in 
which 'gentlemen' everywhere were 
characterized by the possession of 
a common body of knowledge, com- 
mon ways of looking at things and 
of reacting to them. There was, 
in other words, a common culture." 

large amount of specialized education 
is necessary for securing a position." 

New Type Graduate School 

The report of Dean Edwin Green- 
law gives one the distinct impression 
that the University has a new type of 
Graduate School. One point particu- 
larly stressed is that the Graduate 
Scliool is in process of becoming a 
great laboratory in which experimental 
work is being done for the benefit of 
the state as a public enterprise and 
for the benefit of private economic and 
business organizations. 

The idea that the university, 
through its graduate school, can do 
for "the state just what the consulting 
e.xperts in any great business organiza- 
tion do for private business is compara- 
tively new, but Dr. Greenlaw asserts 
it is being carried out with notable 
success in Chape! Hill. 

"In the laboratories and lecture 
rooms," he writes, "definite efifort is 
being made by the graduate students 
and members of the graduate faculty 
to solve such problems of state-wide 
importance as the means by which the 
vast amount of water power in the 
state may best be converted into elec- 
tric current, the development of transi- 
tion curves for highways, and the co- 
operative marketing of tobacco and 

Secure Valuable Information 

"Graduate students and members of 
the graduate faculty in 18 different de- 
partments are devoting a large portion 
of their time to obtaining information 
and data which has a direct bearing 
on everyday life in North Carolina — 
information that has an immediate ap- 
plication in the solution of our every- 
day problems." 

Such information is printed regu- 
larly in bulletins which are placed in 
the university library and are thus 
available through the package library 
service, for distribution to anyone de- 
siring them. 

School Has Big Growth 

The report reveals the graduate 
school has experienced a remarkable 
growth. This year the enrollment is 
329, as compared with a total of 274 
last year. The students are registered 
in 20 different departments. They 
come from 70 different colleges and 
universities. Eighty-five hold first de- 
grees from the LTniversity ; 25 come 
from Trinity college ; 20 from Wake 
Forest; 17 from North Carolina Col- 
lege for Women. 

Morale Best Since the War 

Student morale in the University is 
better than at any time since the war, 
from the effects of which the Uni- 
versity along with other institutions 
suffered. Such is the view expressed 
liy Francis F. Bradshaw, Dean of 



Dean Bradsliaw says that student 
government has taken a definite and 
firm stand against drinking, gambhng 
and hazing and that, despite the fact 
that isolated cases bob up now and 
tiien, calHng for disciplinary action, 
the situation in general is satisfactory 
and there is no cause for alarm. The 
dismissal of several sophomores last 
fall on charges of hazing will probably 
stamp out that evil for several years, 
he adds. 

He gives much praise to this year's 
.student council, elected by the student 
body to mete out punishment. There 
has been a better cooperation between 
the council and the executive commit- 
tee of the faculty than at any time in 
recent years, he declares. 

Religious Influences Stressed 

The religious influences are stressed. 
The Y. M. C. A. has doubled its per- 
sonnel this year, with the result that its 
activities have been multiplied. There 
are Bible study groups which assem- 
ble in the different dormitories follow- 
ing church on Sundays. A large num- 
ber of students walk miles to teach 
country Sunday schools in the after- 
noon. The pastors report that church 
attendance is satisfactory. 

Another striking statement in the 
report is Dean Bradshaw's assertion 
that despite the great increase in num- 
bers in recent years the individual stu- 
dent now gets more attention than ever 
before. This is being effected, he 
says, primarily through a system of 
faculty advisers and mental tests to de- 
termine if each man is developing the 
best in him and making the most of his 
opportunities. There are now about 
75 professors who confer regularly 
with a number of freshmen assigned 
to them and advise them regarding 
their work and problems. 

The Extension Division 

Just how well the Extension Divis- 
ion is succeeding in its aim to put the 
resources of the State's greatest edu- 
cational plant at the direct and imme- 
diate service of citizens who cannot 
attencl the University is strikingly 
illustrated in the annual report of 
Chester D. Snell, Director. 

Ten years ago the University began 
this work in a small way. Under the 
sympathetic leadership of Edward 
Kidder Graham, with the wise guid- 
ance of Louis R. \yi!son (for nine 
years director of the division), nnd 
through the hearty cooperation of the 
faculty, the extent and value of its 


What shall a liberal education be 
to meet the changed conditions of 
the present day? asks Dean Roys- 
ter of the College of Liberal Arts. 
And he answers: 

We cannot in our instruction 
avoid the reality of the life about 
us; our education should be con- 
cerned with an attempt to ap- 
praise it; to determine what is 
ephermal or false about us and 
what is true and eternal. This we 
cannot do abstractly. He agrees 
with President Suzzale of the Uni- 
versity of Washington and quotes 
him as saying: 

"I believe that much would be 
gained if the subjects taught in 
college were presented to the stu- 
dent more in the form of his ex- 
perience with reality. Textbooks 
and lectures are too often largely 
filled with generalizations adapted 
to mature minds of large informa- 
tion and developed powers of re- 
flection. They are organized forms 
of knowledge for the convenience 
of logical minds. But in the world 
of reality experience does not pre- 
sent itself in any such manner. It 
is not a thing of definite facts and 
laws and formulas but of fused 
phenomena quite different from 
what is given us in books. There 
needs to be a better medium be- 
tween the logical presentation of 
facts as usually given in college 
and the experience of immature 
minds as they have seen them in 
the real world. The approach must 
be more from the concrete than 
from the abstract standpoint. 
Teaching would thus become more 
real, more vital, and the interest of 
students in their work would be 
correspondingly developed."

now there is literally no countv in the

teen bureaus of the present Extension 

Shows Remarkable Growth 

Here is one instance of its remark- 
able growth during the past several 
years. In 1920 there were 24 corre- 
spondence students; in 1921 there were 
111 : in 1922 there were 202, and this 
last year there were 376 — a total of 
713 for the four years. 

Correspondence courses have in- 
creased in proportion to the students 
until this last year there were 609 and 
a total of 989 for the last four years. 

The number of students enrolled in 
extension classes during the last three 

>ears have shown the following 
growth: 46 in 1921; 199 in 1922; 901 
in 1923 — a total of 1,146. Extension 
classes were held this year in 31 towns. 

School of Engineering 

A striking feature of the report of 
Crustave Braune, Dean of the School 
of Engineering, is his assertion that 
the cooperative plan of getting an 
engineering education, under which 
the students spend part of the junior 
year in practical experience with engi- 
neering and industrial firms, "has un- 
doubtedly justified itself and the results 
obtained have convinced even the most 
skeptical that the cooperative course is 
a distinct step forward in engineering 

Dean Braune also announces that 
beginning with the opening of the next 
fall term the University will have a 
department of mechanical engineering, 
added as the result of numerous in- 
i|uiries from high school students de- 
siring courses in mechanical engineer- 

Library Has Big Growth 

The University Library under the 
direction of Dr. Louis R. Wilson has 
become one of the leading university 
libraries of the country. Such is made 
clear by Dr. Wilson's report, which 
offers as evidence the following salient 
facts : 

Some Salient Facts 

That the University Library is in- 
cluded for the first time in the list of 
the leading 32 libraries of the country 
whose statistics are annually made the 
sul)ject of special consideration in li- 
brary and educational periodicals. 

It circulated 11,679 more books than 
during any previous year. 

It added 12,352 volumes to its book 

It became one of the 40 American 
libraries which are to prepare witliin 
the next three years a union list of all 
the files of periodicals and transactions 
of learned societies in the libraries of 
tlie United States. 

It began the successful operation of 
a departmental library in the school of 

Dr. Wilson finds, in other words, 
that university students and folk 
throughout the state are doing more 
reading than ever, despite the lure of 
movies and automobiles and other in- 
fluences of the modern day that tend 
to divert one intent on seeking the in- 
struction and entertainment of the 
book shelves. 



Most Students From State 

Dr. T. J. Wilson, Jr.. tlie University 
Registrar, finds that 90.7 per cent, of 
the students are from North Carohnii, 
while of the 9.3 per cent, from outside 
the State South Carolina, Virginia, 
Georgia, Florida, and New York sent 
the largest numbers. Last yea" North 
Carolina furnished a little mo'-e than 
92 per cent. 

This year's students are from 97 of 
the 100 counties of North Carolina; 
Clay, Graham, and Mitchell, all in the 
extreme western part of the State, 
alone having no representatives. Guil- 
ford leads with 123 students, followed 
by Orange with 112, Buncombe with 
109, and Mecklenburg with 101. Wake 
sends 78, Forsyth 57, Rowan 53, Rock- 
ingham 49, Wayne 46, Durham 45. 
Randolph 33, Lenoir, Roberson, and 
Wilson 32 each. Craven, Gaston, and 
Nash 29 each, Alamance 28, Vance 27, 
Pitt and Edgecombe 25 each. 

Different religious bodies are repre- 
sented in the following numbers : 
Methodist 699, Baptist 565, Presby- 
terian 357, Episcopal 239, Christian 
67, Lutheran 47, Jewish 37, Roman 
Catholic 26, Moravian 15, Congrega- 
tional 9, Friends 7, Christian Science 
3. Adventist 2, Holiness 1, Universalist 
1, and without preference stated 56. 

Their Fathers' Vocations 

Dividing the student body into 
groups on the basis of the business or 
profession of the father of each, we 
have the following figures : Farmers 
519, merchants 295, physicians and 
surgeons 89, real estate and insurance 
89, lawyers 86, railroad employees 72. 
ministers 70, salesman 64, manufactur- 
ers 62, contractors 55, education 44, 
bankers 38, retired 35, lumbe'-men 33, 
druggists 28, civil service 25, miscel- 
laneous work 25, tobacconists 24, 
wholesale grocers 20, cotton mill em- 
ployees 20, machinists 19, hotel and 
restaurant managers 17, newspapermen 
15, textile workers 14, automobile 
dealers 13, dentists 13, live stock deal- 
ers 12, clerks 11, accountants 11, furni- 
ture dealers 11, cotton brokers 10 and 

Eighty Women Students 

The report of Mrs. M. H. Stacy, 
Adviser to Women, shows that the 
University enrolled 81 co-eds during 
the fall quarter, 79 of whom are classi- 
fied as follows: Graduate students, 14; 
seniors, 13; juniors, 13; sophomores, 
9 ; freshmen, 7 ; special students, 20 ; 
law, 2; pharmacy 1. 

Campus activities for women stu- 
dents are not as yet multifarious; in- 
terest is centered largely in the Wo- 
man's Student Government Associ- 
ation, and in two fraternities which 
have come into existence this last year. 
The Woman's Student Government 
Association is the former Woman's 
Association revised and improved. All 
women students with registration be- 
come ipso factor members of this as- 

School of Applied Science 

Enrolled in the School of Applied 
Science are 252 students, 118 of whom 
are freshmen. They represent the fol- 
lowing divisions : Chemistry 36 ; medi- 
cine, 70; geology, 9; premedical, 137. 
Dr. James M. Bell, Acting Dean, finds 
distinct encouragement in the fact the 
School of Applied Science (omitting 
the medical groups) ranks alongside 
the College of Liberal Arts in highest 
grades obtained by students. 

School of Commerce 

The School of Commerce now has a 
registration of 492 students, an in- 
crease of 25 per cent, over last year. 
Dean Dudley Carroll expresses the 
hope that the school might be re- 
stricted to 500 students, but admits 
that if this is to be done some severe 
selective measures must be taken. 

Though established only five years 
ago, the School of Commerce already 
has been admitted to membership in 
the American Association of Collegiate 
Schools of Business. This organiza- 
tion has been in existence about eight 
years and is composed of the 26 
schools of business of highest stand- 
ing in America. It was formed for 
tiie definite purpose of raising the 
standards in this field and is rigorous 
in its requirements for admission, as 
shown by the fact that more than half 
the institutions applying for member-, 
ship this year were refused. 

School of Education 

Enrolled in courses in education dur- 
ing the year 1922-23 were 278 indi- 
vidual students as compared with 200 
the year before, according to the re- 
port of Professor N. W. Walker, Act- 
ing Dean of the School of Education. 
During the fall term of 1923-24 the 
School enrolled 92 students in corre- 
spondence courses and 202 in exten- 
sion classes. Other extra class-room 
activities in which the School rendered 
notable service included publication of 
The High Scliool Journal, maintenance 
of a Teachers' Bureau, cooperation 

with the Orange County Schools, 
maintenance of a bureau of Educa- 
tional Research, cooperative research 
in elementary and high schools and 
county educational surveys. 

Particular emphasis is placed on the 
fact that of 274 graduate students in 
the University in 1922-23, there were 
121, or 44.1 per cent, who chose edu- 
cation as their major while 23 chose 
it as a minor. 

School of Medicine 

The total enrolment in the School of 
Medicine is now 70, just 10 below the 
full capacity of the school. More than 
100 applications for admission were 

Dean L H. Manning stresses the 
point that its future depends largely 
upon expansion into a four-year Medi- 
cal School. "The primary purpose of a 
medical school", he says, "is to train 
students to become general practition- 
ers of medicine and until this task is 
fully accomplished it will have failed 
in its ultimate purpose. The condi- 
tions which press for expansion, for a 
full development, have been discussed 
in previous reports. They grow more 
urgent with each year. The medical 
faculty is unanimous in urging that 
every effort consistent with the gen- 
eral growth 'of the LTniversity be made 
to firing the plan of adding two years 
of clinical instruction to a successful 

School of Law 

The School of Law has an enrol- 
ment of 126, the largest in its history. 
Of this number, 8 are from other 
states ; 69 were not in the school last 
year ; 63 are first year students, 43 
second year, and 17 third year. 

Professor A. C. Mcintosh, Acting 
Dean, points out that there seems to 
be a continued improvement from year 
tn vear in the preliminary preparation 
of the students. Of these now enrolled, 
20 have a college degree, 60 have two 
or more year of college work, 29 have 
one year of college work, and 14 have 
had no college training. By classes, 
there are 17 first year, with 7 more 
probable applicants, 14 second year, 
and 12 third year. This shows a de- 
cided increase in third year students 
for the degree, compared with last 
year when there were only four. 

School of Pharmacy 

The School of Pharmacy has 106 
students, an increase of 25 per cent, 
over last year. Dean E. V. Howell 
reports that this number cannot be 



taught satisfactorily in the present 
cramped quarters. The pharmacy 
course will be extended to three years 
in 1925. 

Some interesting statistics show that 
the number of pharmacy students who 
are high school graduates are 94: the 
average age of the group is 19.7 years ; 
the average age of the graduating class 
is 22 years; the number of students 
from North Carolina is 99, or 93.4 
per cent. ; the number of students 
who have had drug store experience is 
80, or seventy-five per cent. : the aver- 
age number of months of d'ug .^tore 
experience to the credit of the group 
as a whole is 27 months : the number 
of pharmacy students earning their 
own way through college is 45. 

Summer School Had 1,494 

The report of Director N. \V. 
Walker shows that 1.494 students were 
enrolled in the Summer School of 
1923, which was divided into two 
terms for the first time, as compared 
with 1,348 the preceding year. 

There were 1,299 students in the 
first term and 514 in the second. 

There were enrolled 608 men and 
886 women; 809 were teachers; 222 
were preparing to teach ; 674 were 
studying for college credit; 252 were 
registered in the Graduate School. 
There were 1,320 students from North 
Carolina representing 96 counties. 


The Extension Division of the Uni- 
versity has announced the inauguration 
of annual contests in journalism for 
North Carolina high schools. There 
will be a newspaper contest and a 
magazine contest, and trophy cups will 
be awarded the winner of each. Rules 
governing the contests and other in- 
formation desired may be obtained 
upon request from E. R. Rankin, Sec- 
retary of the Committee, at Chapel 

Wilfred T. Grenfell, the celebrated 
English physician, who has spent the 
best part of his life in the bleak land 
of Labrador, lectured in Chapel Hill 
on March 10. His talk was illustrated 
with 2,500 feet of motion picture films. 

Dr. Howard W. Oduni, director of 
the University's School of Public Wel- 
fare and editor of, the Journal of So- 
cial Forces, addressed the students 
and faculty of Emory University, 
Georgia, on March 7. 



The ne.xt session of the University 
.Summer School will be divided into 
two terms, as last year, the first to run 
from June 13 to July 25 and the second 
from July 26 to September 4. The 
School will be divided into three .gen- 
eral divisions — college, g-aduate and 
normal .school. 

Director N. W'. Walker recently an- 
nounceil that a strong faculty has 
been secured, composed of specialists 
in their respective departments. A 
demonstration school will be con- 
ducted. A teacher's bureal will be 
maintained for the benefit of teachers 
desiring a change of position and 
there will be no charges for its ser- 

.Students desiring rooms in the Uni- 
versity buildings should make their 
reservations in advance. 

The University now places at the 
disposal of Summer School students 
virtually its entire plant including its 
splendid library of more than 110,000 
volumes, excellent scientific labor- 
atories, modern gymnasiuni and in- 
firmary. The rapid growth of the 
School is evidenced by the fact that 
there were 1,147 students in attend- 
ance in 1920, 1,090 in 1921 (after two 
lower departments had been aband- 
oned), and in 1922 the number reached 
1,384. Last summer 1,299 students 
were enrolled in the first term and 514 
in the second term, a total registration 
of 1,813. 

Reidsville won the state high school 
basketball championship in the finals 
in Chapel Hill on March 8, defeating 
the Wilmington highs, holders of the 
Eastern title, by the score of 10 to 18. 



Noteworthy foreign recognition has 
come to Studies in Philology, a jour- 
nal devoted to literature in all lan- 
guages and published by the Univer- 
sity Press. 

Dr. Edwin Greenlaw, its editor, re- 
cently received from Czechoslovakia, a 
letter from Dr. V. Mathcsius, who 
holds the chair of Englisli Language 
and Literature in Charles University, 
Prague, to the effect that Studies in 
Philology is being used by students of 
his seminar. Dr, Mathesius has long 
taken a foremost part in propagating 
the study of English in Czechoslovakia. 

Such recognition in quarters 
is distinctly gratifying to Dr. Green- 

law and those associated with him in 
editing the journal, which already was 
being used in China, Japan, Australia 
and other foreign countries. 

Studies in Philology has been pub- 
lished for more than 10 years. Dr. 
Greenlaw being appointed editor soon 
after it was established. Its growth 
and success is well attested by the fact 
that constantly orders for back num- 
bers are being received. It is sub- 
scribed to by all the larger American 



Athletic authorities of the Univer- 
sity at-e making preparations for an- 
otlier high school coaches' school this 
coming summer. The school will be 
enlarged and strengthened in several 
particulars, and will be extended in 
scope so a^ to serve all the Southern 
states. It will cover a period of two 
weeks. K. A. Fetzer and W. McK. 
Fetzer, Carolina's famous athletic 
coaches, will be in charge, assisted by 
a large corps of experienced assistants. 

The dates are from Monday, Aug- 
ust 25, registration day, through Sep- 
tember 6. No tuition will be charged 
and the only expense will be meals 
and a small registration fee, rooms 
being furnished free of charge. There 
will be instruction in football, basket- 
ball, baseball, track and tennis. The 
mornings will be devoted to classroom 
instruction and the afternoon.s to prac- 
tical demonstrations. 


Games between dormitory and fra- 
ternity teams in the University now at- 
tract large crowds, and enlist the 
active participation of almost every 
student. The Old and New West 
dormitory team recently won the intra- 
mural basketball championship. It 
won 15 of 16 games i)layed on an 
average of two a week and defeated 
the Dekes, leaders of the fraternity 
lea.gue. Basketball is one of the 
sports on the intra-mural program, 
which aims to interest every sutdent 
in some form of healthful e.xercise. 

Coach William McK. Fetzer is pre- 
parin.g to build a home on the plot of 
ground he bought recently in the 
(iimghoul reservation on the edge of 
Battle's Park. His property is just 
where "Judge" Hrockwell's cabin used 
to be before it burned down a few 
months ago. 




Twenty-Three Games on the Schedule — All But Three Veterans Back 

The Carolina baseball team de- 
feated Guilford College 6 to 1 in the 
opening baseball game of the season 
on April 3 and performed in a style 
that led supporters to predict atiother 
winning season. 

Only three men are missing from 
last year's line-up — "Mule" Shirley, 
first baseman, who left in February to 
fill his contract with the Washington 
Club of the American League ; . Ed 
Sweetman, centerfielder, and Joe Mc- 
Lean, second baseman, who is still in 
college but has played his four years. 

Herman Bryson, of Asheville. who 
has been a first-string pitcher for the 
past three years, was elected captain 
of the team after Shirley left. Shir- 
ley was selected captain following the 
close of the season last spring. 

The infield has been causing Coach 
Bill Fetzer most concern. The Guil- 
ford game would seem to indicate that 
"Monk" McDonald will take over Mc- 
Lean's place at second base : that first 
base will be held down by either 
Johnny Coffey, of Raleigh, or "Touch- 
down" Jones, of Red Oak, and that 
Sweetman's position in centerfield will 
be between Cartwright Carmichael 
and Bill Dodderer, with chances fav- 
oring the former. The rest of the 
line-up will probably be the same as 
last season's, that is, Homer Starling 
at third ; "Casey" Morris behind the 
bat, and Bonner, Carmichael and Gib- 
son in the outfield. 

Bonner, who will also act as second 
catcher, is a veteran of two seasons and 
a consistent .300 hitter. Last year was 
the first season for Carmichael and 
Gibson, but both men developed 
rapidly. Carmichael ranked along 
with Shirley, Morris and Bonner 
among the sluggers, while Gibson was 
a good .Z7S hitter and a dependable 

Captain Bryson and Bill Ferebee, 
last year's 19-year-old wonder, will 
probably do most of the pitching. 
Poyner, Moore, Coltrane. Scott, Finch, 
Hollowell and possibly a couple of 
others will be availalile for reserve 

Twenty-three games are on this sea- 
son's schedule. The Commencement 
game on June 10 will probably be 
with Georgia Tech instead of Virginia. 
I he schedule follows : 

April 3— Guilford, at Chapel Hill. 
.A.pril 10 — Lenoir, at Chapel Hill. 

Ai)ril 17— Elon, at Chapel Hill. 

April 18 — Maryland (pending). 

April 19 — Trinity, at Durham.

Cobb is captain of next year's team. 
Bretney Smith, of Asheville, was 
awarded a manager's monogram. 


Six members of last year's wrest- 
ling team have been awarded mono- 
grams. They are Guy Hagan, of 
<"ireensboro ; Benny Schwartz, of 
Charlotte: R. A. Matheson, of Rae- 
ford ; Shirley Waters, captain, of 
Mooresville : Zack Waters, of Moyock, 
and C. C. Poindexter, of Franklin. 
.\ubrey Shackell, of Edenton, was 
awarded a manager's monogram. 

Zack Waters is captain of next 
year's team. Danford Burroughs, of 
Scotland Neck, is manager. This year's 
team was very successful, scoring 138 
points compared with 75 by its oppon- 
ents. Next season will mark the third 
year of this sport here and Coach A. 
A. Shapiro and Dr. R. B. Lawson 
think there will be plenty of material 
fo:- a winning team. 

Herman Bryson, 
Captain of this year's baseball team. 

W. N. Keener, editor of the Durham 
Morning Herald, came to Chapel Hill 
and addressed the members of the Tar 
Heel staff last month. 




Buncombe Association To Open Well Appointed Club — Durham Group 
To Study Central Office in Chapel Hill 


Organization of tlie Carolina Club, 
composed of alumni of the University 
in Buncombe County, to provide an 
up-to\vn club with lounging, eating 
and other conveniences, for local and 
visiting alumni, located at No. 12 Gov- 
ernment Street, has been started by 
Frank Coxe. president, and Irwin 
Monk, secretary, of the Buncombe or- 

Associated v.-ith them are a number 
of leading alumni, including Haywood 
Parker. '87 ; George Stephens, '96 ; 
Joseph Hyde Pratt. Tom .S. Rollins. 
'99 ; Herman Gudger. '04 ; Junius G. 
Adams. Law '06; T. A. Jones. Jr.. 
'16: Dr. A. T. Pritchard, L. C. Chap- 
man, '18, and Alton Robinson, '23, who 
held a meeting recently and decided to 
proceed with the plans. 

The entire third floor, 50 by 90 feet, 
is available at a very moderate rental 
and will be divided into rooms and 
sections that will suit the needs of the 
club. Included will be a lounge, a 
commodious room, 30 by 50 feet and 
overlooking the Battery Park develop- 
ment, which will be furnished and sup- 
plied with reading and writing ma- 
terial and other conveniences ; a 
kitchen, pantry, grill, pool room, cigar 
stand, lavatory and related require- 

With All Conveniences 

Members of the organization com- 
mittee point out that the club will pro- 
vide an eating and gathering place for 
alitmni of the University in city and 
county, at the same time providing a 
place for entertaining friends and 
visiting alumni. Plans include an elec- 
tric score board and special wires to 
give reports of all baseball, football 
and other important games in which 
the University teams participate. 

Membership will be open to all 
;dumni of the University living in 
-Asheville and Buncombe county, the 
object of the club being to tie up more 
closely the more than 275 alumni in 
Buncombe County, about 240 of wliom 
live in Asheville, a "cf)nimon gather- 
ing place for kindred souls." 

Low Membership Fees 

Letters have gone out to the alumni 
announcing the plan in detail. The 
initiation fee will be $25. Monthly 

club dues will be onl\ S>2 for alumni 
within the confines of the countv, 
while out-of-town memberships will 
be received from visiting alumni at 
the rate of $10 a year. The letters 
contain a return membership card. 

The low rat'e for membership is 
made possible, members of the commit- 
tee explain, as a result of the verv low 
rental at which they are able to secure 
the space for the club rooms. At least 
150 University men are expected to 
join the Carolina Club, the committee 
believing that the organization will be 
able to function satisfactorily if not 
less than 125 memberships are re- 
ceived. They base completion of the 
club plans on applications for that 
number of member.ships. 

First Carolina Club 

.So far as is known, this is the first 
Carolina Club, with the city club fea- 
tures, that has been started in the 
State. Mr. Coxe and members of his 
committee are enthusiastic over the 
prospects of making the innovation a 
success. They believe the Carolina 
men will respond to the call in such 
numbers that the plan will be success- 
fully carried through. 

There are perhaps six or seven other 
points in the state with a sutificient 
number of alumni to found successful 
clubs. These four are : Charlotte, 
Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Durliani, 
Raleigh, and probably Goldsboro or 
Rockv Mount. 



Plans whereby the Durham County 
Alumni Association will be made a 
sort of relay station and model for 
other associations were adopted at a 
banquet in Durham on Alarch 17. 
^lore than 65 Durham county alumni 
were present and much valuable in- 
formation about the University was 
brought out in the discussions. 

At the invitation of Daniel L. 
Grant. Secretary of the General 
.'Munmi Association, who was the 
principal speaker, a committee of 
seven was appointed to visit the Cen- 
tral .Alumni Office in Chapel Hill for 
the purpose of studying methods prac- 
ticerl by the organization, so that the 

Durham association can be of value 
in laying before the other associations 
just what is being done bv the Cen- 
tral Office. 

Members of the Durham High

Alunmi Secretary Daniel L. Grant 
and Assistant Secretary C. Percy Pow- 
ell will attend a joint conference of 
the Association of Alumni Secretaries 
and Alumni Magazines, to be held at 
the University of Virginia, Char- 
lottesville, Va,, April 10 to 12. The 
associations have a membership of 250 
secretaries from the United States and 
Canada, including many leading col- 
leges and universities. 

The Holt Scholarships, awarded an- 
nually by Lawrence S. Holt to one 
member of each class in the University 
considered most worthy of financial 
assistance, were won by D. L. Corbett, 
of Greenville, senior class: J. H. 
Burke, of Thomasville, junior class; 
T. A. Williams, of Wentworth, sopho- 
omore class; and N. A. Orr, of Kan- 
napolis, freshman class. Each schol- 
arship amounts to $125. 

John J. Tigert, United States Com- 
missioner of Education, visited the 
University last month. He addressed 
the student body in chapel and the 
students of the School of Education 
in Peabody Building. 





A regional conference of officers of 
alumni associations in western coun- 
ties was held in the Plaza Cafe, Ashe- 
ville, on March 15. 

The conference included the alumni 
groups of the following counties : 
Burke, Madison, *Rutherford, *Mc- 
Dowell, *Bunconibe, Polk, *Hender- 
son, Transylvania, Haywood, Jackson, 
Swain, *Macon, Cherokee, and *Cald- 
well. (Those with an (*) have duly

It was found that there is a suffi- 
ciently large group of alumni in the 
following counties to form an associa- 
tion : Burke, Polk, Transylvania, 
Haywood, Jackson, and Swain. R. O. 
Hoffman and A. C. Kerley were 
asked to see that an organization is 
formed in Burke; J. W. jNIcIntosh and 
E. W. S. Cobb for Polk ; C. P. White 
and T. J. Summey for Transylvania ; 
T. L. Gwynn, W. J. Hannah, and 
Hugh Mease for Haywood ; C. C. 
Buchanan for Jackson; K. E. Bennett 
and Baxter Jones for Swain. 

Guy V. Roberts was requested to 
hold himself in readiness in Madison 
to co-operate with the association in 
any of its requests, and Bryan W. 
Sipe in Cherokee. The conference 
did not insist that these attempt any- 
thing further, due to the limited num- 
ber of alumni residing in those 

The apportionment of the expense 
of the Central Alumni Office, which 
had been made by the Board of Direc- 
tors, was accepted and this urged 
upon the immediate attention of the 
officers of the local clubs. 

The conference was attended by 
Daniel L. Grant, General Alumni Sec- 
retary, who reported on the work 
which had been carried on during the 
last eighteen months, indicating that 
the work is not the project of an am- 
bitious outsider who is attempting to 
impose some task on the alumni as a 
matter of their "obligation." "The 
only obligation we know is the one 
that the alumni feel, and the only thing 
we wish to attempt is the thing that 
the alumni will make a success of be- 
cause it is their own project," de- 
clared Secretary Grant. "Henceforth, 
the control of the affairs of the asso- 
ciation will be in the hands of the 
local club officers jointly with the class 
officers. They are the duly elected offi- 
cers of the alumni and should be able 
to express alumni desire and safe- 
guard alumni interest. This will be 
worked out practically in the business 
meeting of the association in June, 
when you will be expected to attend, 
or see that someone is there to repre- 
sent your association." 

This message was highly endorsed, 
and the conference emphatically urged 
that each group take active steps to 
see that its officers, or some duly 
elected representatives, attend the 

business meeting in Chape! Hill at 
9:30 a. m. of Alumni Day, June 10.

as its aim full participation in some form of healthful evercise. 



A special reunion program for 
University alumni living outside of 
North Carolina will be completed this 
month. Plans for the holding of this 
program have been under way since 
last October 12, \Yhen the Spartan- 
burg, S. C, alumni initiated the pro-

Grant attended. 

Arrangements for the program are 
being made from the Central Office in

Spartanburg local association. The 
Spartanburg committee is composed of 
R. P. Pell, president of Converse Col- 
lege; J. W. Alexander, a cotton

Secretary Grant is planning a trip 
north in order to work up interest 
among alumni in Virginia, District of 
Columbia, Maryland, New York, and 
Pennsylvania. On April 9 he will 
meet with the Norfolk, Va., alumni ; 
April 12 with the Richmond alumni; 
April 13 with the Washington alumni ;

The University now has a news- 
paper devoted entirely to sports. It is 
called the Intra-Mural Sport-Gram 
and for the present, at least, will con- 
fine itself to the field of intra-mural 

The Sport-Grain, says its editors, 
came into e.xistence in response to an 
increasing interest in inter-dormitory 
and inter-fraternity athletic contests in 
which about two-thirds of the students 
Iiave participated this year. It is 
printed in blue ink on one side of a 
single sheet and goes to every student 
once a week. 

It carries all details regarding intra- 
mural contests such as schedules, 
stories of games, photos of the teams 
and individuals, sports notes and what- 
not. Sheets of this sort have been one 
of the leading assets in developing 
intra-mural sports in some of the 
larger universities. 




A student asked recently what was 
the most interesting campus liappening 
declared it was the draining of the 
lake which has for some weeks sur- 
rounded jMurphey Hall. 

Watch Class of '27 

The Class of '27 gives every indi- 
cation of being one of those great 
classes which come along every decade 
or so. The most recent achievement 
is the evolution of a plan for assimi- 
lating freshmen ne.xt year. Every 
sophomore is to be sponsor for some 
of the freshmen from his county. He 
will assume responsibility for teaching 
them the University yells and songs 
and our ethics of sportsmanship. Then 
in the dormitories they will unite to 
give a dormitory smoker to the fresh- 
men, introduce them to the upper- 
classmen and to each other and have 
some yells and songs and fun. This 
plan would seem to have the merit of 
capitalizing the sophomores' usual in- 
stinct to initiate the newcomers. It 
sounds like it ought to work, if given 
responsible leadership. 

Sane Leadership of Classes 

The leadership of the classes has 
proved very sane this year. A nation- 
ally known University records four 
freshman riots resulting in the depriv- 
ing of more than a third of the class 
of the privilege of taking part in 
extra-curricula activities their sopho- 
more year. Contrast with this tlie 
sportsmanlike way in which our fresh- 
soph snow fight was carried off. 
Then, the class officers had a meeting 
with the boys whose window-panes 
had been broken in the scrimmage, 
found out that the amount of the dam- 
age was $62 and paid it out of the 
class treasuries. The freshmen paid 
$36 of it, admitting that they had 
broken out the most since the sopho- 
mores were in flight toward the dorms 
(luring the scrimmage. The contrast 
between the behavior here and else- 
where as illustrated in this incident 
would indicate the University still be- 
lieves in, and achieves discipline from 
within, a thing which the country 
sorely needs now. 

New Intra-Mural Program 

The Intra-mural program for this 
quarter will include class tug-of-war, 
baseball, tennis, horse-shoe, and peggy- 
golf. In peggy-golf you drive a stick 

in the ground, balance a stick across 
it, place a block of wood on one end, 
take another stick and throw the block 
of wood into the air by striking the 
opposite end of the balanced stick, and 
then with the same club you swat the 
flying block of wood just as far as 
you can. I hope this makes the game 
quite clear to those who do not know 

Valets Next, Maybe! 

Dormitory dwellers are gradually 
accumulating the conveniences of life. 
First, dormitory phones, then apple 
and candy stands, now mail delivery. 
^'alets will probably be next. 

"Ye Gods" Triumphs 

"Ye Gods" is the title of the latest 
creative student production. Earl 
Hartsell wrote it and Professor 
Weaver and Billy Vaught set it to 
music. To bring Mount Olympus up 
to the age of flappers, prohibition, and 
gasoline, and then sprinkle it with 
good'local allusions was a triumph of 
humorious imagination. To write 
the music and find enough boys with 
good looking arms and legs to stage 
a ripping good musical comedy betok- 
ens the development of new kind of 
talent on the campus. The Music 
Department and the musical order of 
the Wigue and Masque have put all 
lovers of real wholesome fun in their 

Initiations Sound Well 

Under the operations of the new 
rule the fraternities are initiating now 
instead of next fall. Battle's Park has 
been living up to its name and resi- 
dents in the vicinity report paddle 
strokes that sound like guns and guns 
that sound like cannon, all well sea- 
soned with gruesome noises. 

Clean-Up Contest On 

The Junior class has just launched 
its annual Spring Clean-Up Campaign. 
.Signs about the campus urge the co- 
operation of all students. A unique 
addition to the usual program has been 
made this year by the cooperation of 
the Junior class and the Dormitory 
Club in a Dormitory Kome Kiean 
Contest. For the next four weeks the 
dormitories will be given a weekly in- 
spection by students in charge, and 
each rated on its cleanliness, external 
and internal, and the quality of the 
"make-up" given the beds. These 

ratings will be published and the best 
kept rooms will be given lionorable 
mention. At the end of the "Kon- 
test," the janitor of the winning dor- 
mitory will receive a cash prize of 
$15 and the next best a second prize 
of $10. It looks as if this ought to 
improve janitor service at least. 

Commissioner Tigert's Joke 

Some 1500 good laughs greeted 
Commissioner of Education Tigert in 
chapel the other morning. He sprung 
a good joke on the Congressman in 
Washington whose wardrobe was too 
heavy for such warm weather as was 
then being inflicted on the capital. In 
his effort to get immediate relief he 
sent his wife the following wire: "S 
O. S., B. V. D., P. D. Q., C. O. D." 
Commissioner Tigert also mentioned 
the worth of education as a state in- 
vestment, quoting Aycock's statement 
that "ideas and the products of ideas 
are of more value than acres and the 
products of acres." 

Chapel Thought-Provoking 

Chapel has been rather thought-pro- 
\oking of late. President Chase has 
opened up twice on intolerance, once 
as represented by Upton Sinclair and 
the National Defense Society, again 
on the .text of Galileo and the 13th 
century's insistence that the doctrine 
of a stationery sun and moveable 
earth simply smashed the foundations 
of all religious faith. In the most ef- 
fective chapel speeches in some time. 
President Chase and Albert Coates 
stirred the enthusiasm of all in their 
presentation of the opportunity pre- 
sented in the Graham Memorial cam- 
paign for bringing a University con- 
sciousness into play in the lives of all 
organizations and individuals. 

The Ransom Family 

Some three college generations have 
admired the athletic loyalty and prow- 
ess of the Ransom family. Among 
some students conversing about the 
most recent Ratty the question was 
asked if he drank. "Why, he hasn't 
even eaten a piece of cake in four 
years !" was the answer. Then there 
developed the fact that around the 
Ransom home (or should we say hive) 
there is a running track on which sev- 
eral future cinder-path stars are now 
training for Carolina. 




Wilson's Interpretation of Lee 

"Robert E. Lee : An Interpretation," 
by Woodrow Wilson, is the title of 
the first non-technical volume to be is- 
sued by the newly established Univer- 
sity of North Carolina Press. Printed 
in large clear type, on heavy book 
paper, and bound in attractive blue 
cloth with gold stamp, the volume was 
placed on sale at $1.00 per copy in 
Chapel Hill and at bookstores through- 
out the nation on April 1. 

Of the content of the volume, which 
appeared serially as the leading article 
in The Journal of Social Forces (Uni- 
versity of North Carolina Press) for 
March, the Greensboro Nc^vs of March 
21 has the following pertinent com- 
ment to make: 

The leading article in the March num- 
ber of The Journal of Social Forces, 
which is just out, is a tribute to Robert 
E. Lee, written by no less a person 
than Woodrow Wilson. In its whole 
career the Journal has published nothing 
more fascinating to the student of the 
national pageant than this study of one 
giant Virginian by another. The paper 
was originally delivered as an address at 
the University of North Carolina, in 
1909, before Wilson had emerged from 
the comparative obscurity of academic 
life into the fierce white light that beat 
upon him throughout the latter years of 
his career. But in spite of the fact that 
it is 15 years old, it has a curious time- 
liness, or, rather, it is timeless, for it 
is a splendid reassertion of the ancient 
truth that "as a man thinketh in his 
heart so he is." With Lee the great 
soldier and the great citizen were merely 
the outward manifestations of the great 
soul within him, and which would still 
have been great in any other age and 
under any other circumstances. 

The Journal calls attention to one 
striking feature of the speech. It was 
delivered, remember, in 1909, when Wood- 
row Wilson was still a college president, 
and Verdun a provincial French town, 
and no man dreamed of the terrific fame 
which the next decade was to bring them 
both. Yet one might easily read a pre- 
sentiment into the lines of the closing 
paragraph, which runs as follows : 

"I spoke just now in disparagement of 
the vocation of the orator. I wish there 
were some great orator who could go 
about and make men drunk with this 
spirit of 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 achieve- 
ment and of confident hope." 

Our Native Trees 

Lionel Weil, of Goldsboro, is the 
author of a twenty-page booklet en- 
titled "Our Native Trees," which, for 
attractiveness of illustration and value 
as a practical guide to the planting 
and cultivation of trees, is unusually 

Why Mr. Weil should be writing 
books on trees and devising special 
apparatus for their transplanting, may 
not be easily guessed by his Univer- 
sity classmates. The Review believes 
the reason is to be found in the follow- 
ing bit of philosophy which appears in 
the preface of the booklet which we 
commend to all our readers : 

It is a peculiar fact that the things we 
grow up with and see every day of our 
lives become so accepted as a matter of 
course that our knowledge of them is 
very meager, unless for some reason our 
interest becomes aroused. 

Prior to twelve years ago, this vir- 
tually represented my attitude to trees, 
and while today my knowledge is still 
limited, my interest in them has grown 
and deepened. Bringing in trees from 
our near-by forest and transplanting them 
around my home has brought me in 
closer touch with my woodland friends. 
A country acquaintance of mine once re- 
marked, "I like your home all right; but 
if I were you I should cut down those 
common pine trees." Ever since that 
time I have been planting them in ever- 
increasing numbers. 

Alderman and Daniels Speak 

Edwin Anderson Alderman, '82, and 
Josepheus Daniels, '87, were the prin- 
cipal speakers at the unveiling of the 
bronze figure of Charles B. Aycock, 
by Gutzdon Borglum, in Raleigh, on 
March 13. Reference is made else- 
where in this issue to the significance 
of the occasion. Here, The Review 
wishes to direct the attention of alumni 
to the address of Dr. Alderman which 
appeared in full in The Nczvs and Ob- 
server for March 14. It has been our 
good fortune to hear Dr. Alderman 
many times beginning back in the days 
when he was President of the Uni- 
versity. Never have we, however, 
heard him speak more feelingly and 
with greater eloquence and charm than 
in this memorial tribute. Copies may 
be secured now from The News and 
Observer or later in the Proceedings 
of the North Carolina Education Asso- 

Dr. Allport's New Psychology 

The Houghton Mifllin Company, of 
Boston, has recently issued from the 
press a new textbook entitled "Social 
Psychology" written by Dr. F. H. All- 
port of the department of Psychology 
of the University and editor of The 
Journal of Abnormal Psychology and 
Social Psychology. This text should 
prove to be a significant contribution 
in a field of psychology that is up to 
the present poorly organized in a sci- 
entific way. Dr. All port is offering 
more solid bases for study of this field 
by emphasizing the fact that all social 
psychology reduces in ultimate analysis 
to individual psychology and is to be 
e.xplained in terms of physiological 
drives. Experimental data are con- 
stantly referred to, and the viewpoint 
is throughout genetic. 

Cox on Lent Observance 

Members of the college generation 
1895-1899 and particularly members of 
the Class of 1899, which is to hold its 
twenty-fifth reunion at Commence- 
ment, will be interested in the note 
that Rev. William Edward Cox, '99, 
Rector of the Church of the Holy 
Comforter, of Richmond, Va., is the 
author of an address entitled "The 
Practical Observance of Lent." The 
address was delivered at the meeting 
of the Convocation of Norfolk in No- 
vember, 1923, and was printed at the 
request of the Richmond, Virginia, 

The Review Corrects an Error 

The Review acknowledges the re-

from a member of one of the fraterni- 
ties for women recently established, 
and, accordingly, gladly corrects the 
statement concerning which it was in

A recent survey of the senior class 
made by the Bureau of Vocational 
Information indicates that 20 per cent 
of the class expect to take graduate 
work next year. About a third of the 
class will go to work but have, as yet, 
made no connection and would like to 
be advised of opportunities in their 

T. A. Whitener, who is in charge of 
the Bureau, states that its first pur- 
pose is to help men decide on their field 

and that assisting them to obtain em- 
ployment must always be a subordinate 
function. However, he will give what 
assistance he can to these men who 
have made definite request. Alumni 
who know of positions open would con- 
fer a favor on these seniors by com- 
nnmicating with Mr. Whitener. 


."Judge" Brockwell is dead. He 
passed away peacefully in the early 
morning of March 27, in the little 
frame cottage near the Country Club 
into which he had moved two years 
ago when his cabin on the Piney Pros- 
pect road was burned. He was 94 
years old and was believed to be the 
oldest living resident of Chapel Hill. 

His real names was John but to 
every generation of University stu- 
dents since the Civil War he was 
known as plain "Judge." He was a 
familiar character in the University 
community and alumni always de- 
lighted with swapping reminiscences 
with him. 

He had been unable to do any work 
of late, but was able to be up and 
about nearly all the time and had a 
habit of sitting aroimd down town, 
bowing and smiling to passersby 
whether he knew thetn by name or 

He served in the Civil War and his 
father was a veteran of the War of 
1912. He had performed much real 
service to the community. Probably 
50 per cent of the trees more than 
30 years old that now line the sereets 
of the town were planted by him. 
For many years he was a grave dig- 
ger in the cemetery back of Emerson 
Field, and so well did he know this 
burying ground that he could identify 
the grave of any person without refer- 
ence to tombstone or other marks. 



Charles Sumner Hamlin, member of 
the Federal Reserve Board and for- 
merly Assistant Secretary of the 
Treasury, has accepted an invitation 
to deliver the Commencement address 
at the University on June 12. Presi- 
dent Chase extended the invitation in 
person while in Washington recently. 

Mr. Hamlin is a native of Boston 
and '3. Harvard graduate. He has a 
long record of public service. A law- 
yer by profession, he was appointed 
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury 
in 1893 and served until 1897; he was 
reappointed in 1913 by President Wil- 

son who a year later made him a mem- 
ber of the Federal Reserve Board and 
reappointed him for ten years in 1916. 
He has served as special commissioner 
for the United States on a number of 
important international commissions. 

The Rev. Henry D. Phillips, rector 
of Trinity Church in Columbia. S. C, 
will preach the baccalaureate sermon. 



Dr. and Mrs. E. C. Branson and 
their daughter, Elizabeth, have re- 
turned to Chapel Hill from Europe, 
which they have been touring for the 
past year. During his travels Dr. 
Branson contributed to the state papers 
a series of interesting newspaper art- 
icles on conditions abroad as a result 
of his studies. 

The Bransons had a difficult time 
when they came out of Denmark in 
the fall and set out to go through Ger- 
many to France. In Stuttgart a bank's 
board of directors had a special meet- 
ing to decide whether or not they 
would let Professor Branson have 30 
American dollars. They called him 
into the meeting, discussed the matter 
gravely with him, explained the great 
need of German banks for American 
money, and ended by declining to give 
cash in exchange for his American 
Express Company checks. Where- 
upon he went around the corner to a 
tailor who gave him not only 30 but 
50 dollars for his checks. 



Swain Hall, the University's dining 
emporium, where 600 students were 
boarding, was partially destroyed by 
fire of unknown origin early on the 
morning of April 3. Tlie damage was 
estimated at $25,000, mostly covered 
by insurance. 

The kitchen and all its valuable 
e(]uii)ment, including a large range 
worth $3,000, were completely de- 
stroyed, and the flames from the fur- 
nace room made their way underneath 
the floor of the main building and 
burst through in a number of places. 
Firemen were forced to tear up large 
sections of the floor before they could 
extinguish the blaze. 

The part of the building destroyed 
will be restored immediately and 
should be ready for occupancy before 
-May 1. Meanwhile the students board- 
ing there will be taken care of by the 
cafes, cafeterias and boarding houses. 




President, Vice-Presidents, and Directors To Be Elected 
Ballots Must Be In By June 9th. 

The polls for the election of new 
officers of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation will be open from May 15 until 
6 p. m. on June 9, which is Monday 
of Commencement week. Ballots are 
to be sent the 9,000 alumni on the 
Alumni Secretary's regular mailing

Tells How Carolina Won Southern 

T. B. Higdon, '05, an attorney of At- 
lanta, Ga., with offices in the Hurt Build- 
ing, has sent The Review an interesting 
account of how Carolina won the South- 
ern basketball championship this year, as 
follows : 

It was thru a mighty array of basket 
ball talent that Carolina battled thru to 
the silver cup. There first victim was 
Kentucky which had been widely touted 
as a favorite. (A Kentucky supporter 
was being "kidded" last night about his 
team's being put out in the first round. 
He came back with, "It got as far as any 
other team. They all stopped when they 
got to North Carolina"). Next the Tar 
Heels took the chesty Vanderbilt team 
into camp, including the redoubtable Bo- 
mar whom Walter Camp has delighted 
to honor. The elimination process was 
next applied to the Mississippi Aggies 
who rode rough shod over the tourna- 
ment last year to the championship. In- 
cidently, their route last .year lay across 
the necks of last year's Carolina team, 
which fact did not detract from the zest 
of this year's victory. In the meantime, 
the gigantic aggregation from the Uni- 
versity of Alabama had ploughed its way 
through the other bracket of the opposi- 

J. \V., rnistead, Jr., '09 

tion. The "fans" were delirious : the 
finals would be between the two best. 

I must say that Alabama squad was 
an impressive looking outfit. The centre 
measured a scant 6 foot 4^, so I was 
told by the coach. In the words of 
Hashimura Togo, a slight headache were 
enjoyed by us on the anxious bench as 
they trotted out on the floor. From the 
way they glowered at Carmichael and 
his mates, we judged their disposition 
would prove about as amiable as that of 
Senator Heflin. We were agreeably dis- 
illusioned on this score, however, for they 
played a very strenuous but a very clean 
game. In spite of this, so fierce was the 
fight that Carter, their star, had four 
personal fouls called on him and only 
the intercession of the Carolina team 
saved him from being put out of the 
game. Everyone will bear witness 
to the fact that the team lived up to 
the finest traditions of Carolina sports- 
manship and added to them substantially. 
We sincerely regret we shall not see Car- 
michael and McDonald in action here 
again. They are the most finished artist 
of the gam.e, in my opinion, the public 
here have ever been privileged to see. 

I will close with a quotation from the 
write-up of the game in The Atlanta 
Journal which expresses a universal senti- 
ment and it includes my own : 

"I am glad, and I think everybody was 
glad, that Carter was permitted to come 
back for that last stand. It was a pretty 
thing for the Carolina team to do ; they 
were gallant champions before, in 1922. 
and models of sportsmanship, and this 
team adds luster even to that former 
record. It is the finest team, I firmly be- 
lieve, that ever showed its wares in a 
southern tournament. It took such a team 
to turn back the Crimson tide last night. 
It required a real champion to win that

other one will get there in '26. One devel- 
ish boy in the ninth grade is headed 
straight for Chapel Hill, unless he gets on 
the wrong road. I am doing my best to 
hold him in the road and hope to do so. 

Have always wanted a tennis 
racket that was dependable and 
durable and still held the graceful 
lines of a model racket. Spalding 
"Autograph" Racket combines all 
these qualities and so is as near 
perfect as man can devise. All 
"Autograph" rackets are strung 
with Permatite which doubles the 
life of the stringing. 

The Spalding Autograph Tennis 
Racket plays an important part in 
all "Championships". A good 
example of their value was shown 
in the 1923 "National Singles 
Championship" when by actual 
count more Spalding Autographs 
were used than any other make 
of racket.

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 itj our booklet, "A Question 
the Future IVill Not Answer," sent free upon request
