TRUTH AS A UNIVERSITY IDEAL
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
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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."
OPINION AND COMMENT
Is Chapel Maintained?
Is the ancient and honorable institution of Chapel
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
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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-
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-

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
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-

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
"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
COMMON CULTURE IS
THING OF THE PAST
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

"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
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 —

plication in the solution of our every-

larly in bulletins which are placed in

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
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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 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
URGES MORE REALITY
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
services h.i\ e .--teadily increased, until
now there is literally no countv in the
state not touched by one of the thir-
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

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
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

THE ALUMNI REVIEW
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

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

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

SUMMER SCHOOL WILL RUN
TWO TERMS AGAIN THIS YEAR
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-

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-

maintained for the benefit of teachers
desiring a change of position and
there will be no charges for its ser-

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

STUDIES IN PHILOLOGY
Noteworthy foreign recognition has
come to Studies in Philology, a jour-
nal devoted to literature in all lan-
guages and published by the Univer-
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 forei.gn 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-

COACHING SCHOOL TO RUN
AGAIN THIS SUMMER
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-
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

on April 3 and performed in a style
that led supporters to predict atiother
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

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.

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

MORE WESTERN ALUMNI
NOW BEING ORGANIZED
A regional conference of officers of
alumni associations in western coun-
ties was held in the Plaza Cafe, Ashe-

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.

ARE KEEN FOR REUNIONS
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-
ject at a meeting which Secretary
Arrangements for the program are
being made from the Central Office in
Chapel Hill, in conjunction with the
Spartanburg local association. The
Spartanburg committee is composed of
R. P. Pell, president of Converse Col-
lege; J. W. Alexander, a cotton
broker of Spartanburg; and E. S.
Lindsey, of the faculty of Converse
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;

NEW SPORTS SHEET HELPS
MASS ATHLETICS PROGRAM
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
THIi ALUMNI REVIEW
HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL
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
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.

"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 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.
THE ALUMNI REVIEW
THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT
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-
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

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.

READY FOR JOBS
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 PASSES
."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
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.
HAMLIN TO DELIVER THE
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.
BRANSON BACK FROM
A YEAR IN EUROPE
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.

morning of April 3. Tlie damage was
estimated at $25,000, mostly covered
The kitchen and all its valuable

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
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

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
