For the man 




beyond the campus 



FIFTEEN YEARS AGO 
Joseph French Johnson, who 
was, and is. Dean of the School of 
Commerce, Accounts and Finance of 
New York University, found him- 
self faced with a problem to which 
there was no satisfactory answer. 

He was constantly in receipt of 
letters from business men, many of 
them occupying places of executive 
responsibility. The letters asked 
such questions as these: 

"What books shall I read?" 

"Can you lay out for vie a course in 

business economics?" 
"How can I broaden my knowledge 
of salesmanship, or accounting, 
or factory management, adver- 
tising or corporation finance?" 

Those were pioneer days in the 
teaching of Business. Dean John- 
son, wishing to help, yet feeling 
keenly the lack of suitable facilities, 
conceived the plan of a faculty in- 
cluding both college teachers and 
business men, and a Cour.se so 
arranged that any man might follow 
it effectively in his own home. 

Thus began the Alexander Hamil- 
ton Institute. Dean Johnson has 
continued as its President; its Ad- 



visory Council includes these men: 

Dexteh S. Kimball, Dean of the Engineer- 
ing Colleges, Cornell University; Joseph 
French Johnson, Dean of the New York 
Iniversity School of Commerce; General 
Coleman DuPont, the well-known business 
executive; Percy H. Johnston, President of 
the Chemical National Bank of New York; 
John Hays Hammond, the eminent engineer; 
Frederick H. Hurdman, Certified Public 
Accountant; Jeremiah W. Jenks, the statis- 
tician and economist. 

To young men of college age, the 
Institute says: "Matriculate at a 
college or university if you possibly 
can; there is no substitute for the 
teacher." To older men, the univer- 
sities and colleges, in turn, are con- 
stantly recommending the Modern 
Business Course of the Institute. 

It is a Course for the man beyond 
the campus; the man who is already 
in business and cannot leave, the 
man who wants to supplement his 
college education. If you are such 
a man, may we send you, without 
obligation, a copy of "A Definite 
Plan for Your Business Progress?" 
It tells how 200,000 men have 
profited by a business training 
founded upon university prin- 
ciples, and conducted in accord- 
ance with university ideals.

Important Day for Alumni 

The Review takes this occasion to init alumni on 
notice that the approaching .\lumni Day is to be one of 
unusual importance to the future of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation and of all alumni activity in general. 

Two years ago the Association elected an entirely 
new set of officers and directors, put Daniel L. Grant 
in charge of the Central Alumni office, and began work 
as a separate fourth part of the University organization. 

At the end of the two years the officers of the Asso- 
ciation are to present the results of their effort to put 
the Association on its feet, outline the work which they 
think it should carry on for the future, and announce 
the result of the ballots to be cast prior to Alumni Day 
for the men who will direct the aiYairs of the Asso- 
ciation in the future. 

The job of setting up a going concern which involves 
so many interests and so many individuals of varying 
opinions, of selecting lines of activity which all can 
unite in making effective, and in avoiding financial 
shipwreck while doing it, has been a tremendous one, 
and one for the successful doing of which the whole 
official group should receive the Association's heartiest 
approval — which, in turn, can ])est be expressed by 
the return of a record crowd of alumni on Alumni 
Day, and a finer determination to get behind the work 
of the Association and make it increasingly worth 
while. 

D D n 

The Swelling Tide 

Time was when The Review did its annual bit on 
reunions in a more or less perfunctory way. It alwavs 
recognized the value of them and was convinced that 
they were worth more than they cost, but, in discom- 
fort, in failure to see classmates who did not return, 
and in lack of pep on the ])art of the speech-makers at 
alumni events, the cost was rather high. 

I'"or the last three years we've beat the drums gladlv. 
because .\lumni Day has become a joyous day. And 



this year it is going to be even more so. Gradually 
the "old grad" is learning to take his fun less seriously, 
with less speech making, and with more genuine good 
fellowship, and the thing goes with a bang ! Accom- 
modations for classes in the dormitories, good cafeteria 
service, appropriate halls for class banquets, stunts and 
athletic events, the Playmakers, feeds on the lawn, and 
the meeting of a swelling tide of classmates, make the 
day an event that any one can shout over ! 

This time we commend the occasion to all the 11,000 
members of the household, particularly to the classes 
of '54, '64, -84. '94, '99, '04, '09, '14, '19, '23, and most 
particularly to those splendid fellows of the class of 
1899 who have always snatched the rag for percentage 
attendance, who are coming back strong for their 
twenty-fifth anniversary, and to whom The Review, 
through its editor, has the honor to belong! 

D D D 

Student Affairs 

The Review commented in its .\])ril issue upon the 
attempt being made by the student body of the Uni- 
versity to work out a plan whereby a greater unity of 
spirit and action could be achieved on the campus 
which would involve the entire University. 

,\mong the many steps taken in bringing about this 
desired end, the joint action of faculty and student 
body in extending Chapel period for an hour one day 
in order that the candidates for the presidency of the 
student body might state their platforms and that 
emphasis might be ])laced on the annual elections has 
l)','cn the most significant. As a result of this action, 
the matter of student responsibility for student govern- 
ment was stres.sed, the candidates had an opijortunity 
to define their platforms clearly, and the event was 
placed in such a setting as to bring out a large and 
thoughtful vote. 

The final outcome of this new procedure, of course, 
cannot be jiredicted. But three highly beneficial results 



262 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



have already been obtained. Students have been 
brought to take their responsibiUties as guardians of 
the campus more seriously, the demoralization of a 
long-drawn out spring election has been appreciably 
lessened, and the newly elected officers, particularly 
those who are to have charge of student government, 
have already been selected and are at work perfecting 
their organization and gaining experience so that they 
can function properly at the two periods at which, 
heretofore, student government has usually gone to 
pieces — Commencement, and during the opening of 
the term in September. 

To The Review's mind the attempt to bring the 
student body together is working admirably, and a bet- 
ter day in student affairs should be immediately ahead. 

D D D 

Contest for High School Journalists 

The University Extension Division has recently 
established two new connections with the State that 
seem to The Review to promise much in the way of 
benefit to the two groups afifected. 

The first is the establishment of a contest in excel- 
lence in journalism for high schools. Two cups are to 
be oiYered by the Extension Division, one to the high 
school having the best newspaper and the other to the 
high school having the best magazine. The decision in 
each instance will be based on news values, editorial 
and literary excellence, and the general make-up and 
typographical appearance of the publications. Files of 
the competing publications will be submitted at the end 
of the year, and the work of the editorial boards will 
be carefully scrutinized and criticized by the commit- 
tee in charge and the department of Journalism. 

The action of the Extension Division is most praise- 
worthy, in that it thus gives encouragement to literary 
work in the schools of the State and emphasizes 
journalistic enterprise, in addition to debate and 
athletics. 

n n D 

Dramatic Association Formed 

The second enterprise is the establishment of the 
Carolina Dramatic Association. During the first week 
in April when the Carolina Playmakers were putting 
on their series of plays in Chapel Hill, seventy-five odd 
teachers of the State and others interested in producing 
plays and pageants spent two days at the University, 
attended special lectures on play producing and other 
related topics, and witnessed special plays and interpre- 
tative dancing by groups representing the Chapel Hill 
high school and the North Carolina College for Women. 

The formation of the association not only contemp- 
lates the holding of similar institutes, but it provides 
for the expert direction of dramatics out in the State 
by representatives from the University. In comment- 
ing upon the significance of the movement to the State, 
the Greensboro Nezvs says : 

Needless to say, if the effort succeeds, it will have a profound 
and far-reaching effect on the cultural life of North Carolina. 



Its good effects would only begin with the players. The main 
effect would be that upon the audiences. Who can say what it 
would be worth to North Carolina to have in every community 
of the State a consdierable proportion of the public educated 
to look to the theater for something other than leg-shows and 
black-face comedians? 

D D D 

Julian S. Carr 

On Commencement day 1923, General Julian S. Carr, 
'66, long-time member of the Board of Trustees, 
former President of the General Alumni Association, 
and always devoted son of the University, received 
from his Alma Mater the finest tribute she could pay 
him in the form of her highest degree of distinction. 
Doctor of Laws. Now that his career of devoted 
service has been ended, and the University mourns his 
loss, the statement made concerning him in that high 
ceremonial comes to mind : 

Julian Shakespeare Carr, a native of Chapel Hill and 
peculiarly a son of the University, being born on University 
Day, October 12, 1845. Educated at the village school, he 
entered the University at the age of sixteen but before he 
had finished the course, patriotically donned Confederate 
gra)- and helped to fill Lee's depleted ranks, enlisting as a 
private in company K, Third North Carolina Cavalry, Bar- 
ringer's Brigade. Received the degree of A.B. from his 
University in 1911, as of 1866. After the war he became 
North Carolina's greatest captain of industry of that day, 
developing the tobacco business until it grew into a 
mammoth industry. With a patriotism which sprang from 
the heart, and a liberality unexcelled for its breadth, he 
gave himself without stint to the development and upbuild- 
ing of his native State. The mere catalogue of the insti- 
tutions he directed, the causes he supported, even without 
comment, would in itself constitute a worthy and noble 
monument. Leader in business, in philanthropy, in politics, 
in the support of education, in the organization of the 
United Confederate Veterans in which he had held the very 
highest posts, in all creative efforts for the making of a 
great Commonwealth. 

To this expression of the University's pride in Gen- 
eral Carr, and to the profound sense of loss which the 
LTniversity feels in his death. The Review wishes to 
add three further words. First, The Review wishes 
here to acknowledge its debt to him for generous 
financial assistance received at the end of its first year 
of publication when its existence as the organ of the 
Alumni Association was in the balance. Second, it 
would remind the Alunmi that he devoted time and 
constructive ability to the affairs of the General Asso- 
ciation during his presidency when some of the present 
policies of the Association were first undertaken ; and 
finally, it would remind all Alumni and all North Caro- 
linians that in him the cause of higher education had a 
friend at a time when assistance was sorely needed. 
In the early nineties he gave Trinity College the splen- 
did grounds which constitute its campus today. In 
1897 he gave the city of Durham the first public library 
in North Carolina ; and in 1900 he placed here on the 
Campus the Carr building which marked the beginning 
of the new physical University.

UNIVERSITY PREPARES FOR GREATEST COMMENCEMENT 



The University is getting ready for 
the greatest Commencement in its his- 
tory, the feature of which will be the 
home-coming in record numbers of 
out-of-state alumni. 

This year for the first time the re- 
union program is being extended to 
cover three of the four days of Com- 
mencement which embrace June 8-11, 
inclusive. It is felt that increased hotel 
and cafe facilities and improved means 
of travel should make this plan practi- 
cable. 

Sunday, June 8, ii the opening day. 
The baccalaureate sermon will be de- 
livered by the Rev. Henry D. Phillips, 
rector of Trinity Church in Columbia, 
S. C. 

Out-of-State Alumni 

The farewell exercises of 
the graduating class will be 
held on Monday, June 9. 
That night the alumni will 
gather to renew acquaintances 
at a banquet at wliich the out- 
of-state men will be guests of 
honor. President Chase will j 
be the principal speaker. 

Tuesday, June 10, will be 
Alumni Day proper. That 
morning there will be a meet- 
ing of the General Assembly 
of the Alumni Association 
(formerly called the business 
meeting), the reunion of the 
home-coming classes and the 
alumni luncheon. The after- 
noon program will comprise a 
baseball game between Caro- 
lina and Georgia when class 
stunts and parades will be in 
order, an alumni gathering 
under the Davie Poplar at S 
o'clock and class dinners an<l 
the annual performance oi 
the Carolina Playmakers thrit 
night. 



Hamlin Is Speaker 

The Commencement address 
will be delivered on Wednes- 
day. June 11, by Charles .Sum- 
ner Hamlin, member of the 
Federal Reserve Board and 
formerly Assistant .Secretary 
of the Treasury. Mr. Hamlin 
has a long record of public 
service. A lawyer by profes- 
sion, he was appointed Assis- 
tant Secretary of the Treas- 
ury in 1893 and served until 
1897 ; he was reappointed in 
1913 bv President Wilson who 



a year later made him a member of the 
Federal Reserve Board and reappointed 
him for 10 years in 1916. He has 
served as special commissioner for the 
United States on a number of impor- 
tant international commissions. He is 
a native of Boston and a Harvard 
graduate. 

Business Meeting Separated 

The business meeting of the General 
Alumni Association will be entirely 
disassociated from the reunion pro- 
gram this year in accordance with a 
decision of the class officers and board 
of directors at meetings this spring. 
These groups came to the conclusion 
that the merging of the business meet- 
ing and class reunions in Gerrard Hall, 
as has been the custom for vears, 







The Davie Poplar — Today it is apparently as vigorous as ever despite 
the fact its life has been threatened several times. 



served to put a damper on the busi- 
ness part of the program and pre- 
vented both the business meeting and 
reunions being as effective as would 
be possible with a complete separation 
of the two. 

So this year the business meeting, 
which the alumni leaders hope to make 
a "General Assembly," will be held in 
Memorial Hall beginning at 9 :30 
o'clock Tuesday morning, June 10. 
This is half an hour earlier than the 
meeting has begun in the past and if 
it gets under w-ay promptly there 
sliould be ample time for the transac- 
tion of all business before the opening 
of the reunion program in Gerrard 
Hall at noon when the home-coming 
classes and out-of-state alumni will 
pass in review with their reminis- 
cences. 



Grant to Report 

At the General Assembly 
Secretary Grant will make his 
annual report of the work ac- 
complished by the General 
Alumni Association during 
the past year, and the alumni 
will be asked to determine the 
future course of tlie associ- 
ation. One of the major 
questions to come before the 
meeting will be the permanent 
method of financing the Gen- 
eral Alumni Office. 

The General Assembly is to 
have complete control over 
alumni work. It is to be con- 
ducted by the officers of the 
classes and local associations, 
or by the duly delegated rep- 
resentatives of these groups. 
These officers are being asked 
to come to Chapel Hill pre- 
pared to express the views ol 
a majority of the alumni and 
with a full consciousness of 
their obligations. All alumni 
are invited to attend this 
meeting and take part in the 
discussions, but the power of 
decision is to be left with the 
delegates. It is felt tiiat this 
.■innual meeting should deter- 
mine policies and outline pro- 
grams to be administered by 
tlie board of directors com- 
posed of twelve members 
elected by the vote of the en- 
tire alumni group. 

Approximately 65 alunnii 
associations are now in exis- 
tence, while 40 of the classes 



264 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



uitli living nienibers have some form 
of permanent organization. 

Cansler Is Marshal 

John S. Cansler, '14, of Charlotte 
has been selected Commencement Mar- 
shal. He will establish headquarters in 
the Y. M. C. A. and direct the entire 
Commencement program. 

Each reunion class is to have head- 
quarters either in a dormitory or on the 
campus. Some are putting on elaborate 
programs and will don colorful cos- 
tumes and do various stunts. 

Many Classes Active 

The class of 1899 has been to date 
one of the most active in planning a 
youth-renewing celebration. A com- 
mittee composed of D. R. W. Connor, 
H. M. Wagstaff and L. R. Wilson 
acting under the authority of W. S. 
Crawford, vice-president, has evolved 
a program for the twenty-fifth anni- 
versary that should appeal to every 
member. This class will get together 
at a banquet at Gooch's Cafe at 7 
o'clock on Monday night, June 9, and 
stay together as much as possible on 
through Wednesday. All members of 
the class, graduates and non-graduates 
and affiliated members of the profes- 
sional schools, their wives and children 
are e.xpected to be present. 

The reunion committee of the class 
of 1909, composed of John W. Um- 
stead, chairman ; O. J. Coffin, J. H. 
Manning, K. D. Battle and C. W. 
Tillett, Jr., plans to reach Chapel Hill 
.Saturday and will meet at the station 
in Durham the members as they arrive 
and dress them in appropriate togs be- 
fore permitting them to enter the 
village. 

Judge Winston After '79 

Judge Francis D. Winston, of 
Windsor, historian, ' is rounding up 
the members of 1879 for the forty-fifth 
reunion. Some of the members who 
have indicated they will attend are R. 

B. Henderson, Franklinton ; W. L. 
Hill, Warsaw; J. S. Manning, Ral- 
eigh ; John M. Manning, Durham ; A. 

C. Springs, Charlotte ; Robert W. 
Winston, Chapel Hill. 

The class of 1918 held its first five- 
year reunion last Commencement and 
pledged itself then, by way of living 
up to its reputation as an outstanding 
class, to hold an informal reunion 
every year. Some skeptics said it 
couldn't be done, but a great majority 
warmed up to the idea. This year is the 
fir.st test of the innovation the perma-

nent success of which will be deter- 
mined by the active interest shown in 
just one way — the return in large iium- 



Iiers of members of '18. Bobbie 
Wunsch, secretary, is sending out let- 
ters from Greensboro, his new home, 
and Harding Butt is organizing things 
on the Hill. 

Preparing Class Histories 

Each class at its dinner on Alumni 
Day will consider plans for a more 
effective and permanent organization 
as recommended by the recent confer- 
ence of permanent class secretaries. 

The classes of 1899, 1904, 1909 and 
1919 are preparing class histories to 
appear before June. The class of 1914 
will also issue a booklet to appear in 
the early summer.* 

The classes of 1909, 1914, 1919 and 
1923 will wear distinctive costumes 
during the entire Commencement 
period. 

Physical endurance tests in the form 
of pushball contests will be a sports 
feature of the program. The classes 
with numerals ending with "9" will 
oppose those ending with "4." These 
clashes are scheduled for 2 :30 o'clock 
on Emerson Field Tuesday afternoon. 

Under Davie Poplar 

Another new feature this year will 
be a band concert under Davie Poplar 
at 5 o'clock in the afternoon of Alumni 
Day with each home-coming class as- 
sembled around in groups. Every re- 
union class from 1889 to 1923 will 
have one night to itself for its class 
dinner, most of which will be held 
Tuesday. 

At the Alumni Luncheon in Swain 
Hall the reunion classes will be seated 
together in the center of the large 
dining room facing the toastmaster's 
table. Class stunts will be featured 
and all speeches will be short. 

Reunion Committee Acts 

A Reunion Committee representing 
the home-coming classes met at the 
Central Alumni Office in Chapel Hill 
recently and perfected plans for the 
alumni part of the Commencement 
program. Those present were :

Some Interesting Letters 

There have gone into the mails to 
the alumni recently from the class sec- 
retaries, local alumni association sec- 
retaries and members of the board of 
directors some interesting letters con- 
cerning the home-coming of tlie Uni- 
versity's sons. These letters contain 
bits of information that will make the 
chest of any alumnus swell with pride, 
whether he lives in Chapel Hill, 
Borneo or Kamchatka. A letter from 
the Secretary of the Alabama Alumni 
Association to the out-of-state gmups 
says in part : 

No man is averse to the receipt of good news. 

The student body today numbers 2100; the 
faculty 160, exclusive of assistants; and there 
are 12 distinct schools. During the last three 
years eight complete new buildings have been 
added to the plant in addition to the re- 
modeling of Old West and Old East, and at 
the present moment five are under construc- 
tion. The Presbyterians and Baptists have 
opened new churches, the Episcopalians have 
one under construction, and the Methodists 
have approved plans for a new structure, and 
at the West Gate of the campus the Carolina 
Inn is soon to be opened by John Sprunt Hill, 
costing more than $200,000. No effort is made 
here to enumerate accurately the large number 
of dwellings built by the University, or the ad- 
ditions of several fine brick fraternity houses 
and the other corresponding developments which 
have gone on in the village. During the cur- 
rent biennium the State appropriations 
amounted to $3,025,000. 

Already the University is the outstanding 
higher educational institution of the South and 
at its present rate of development in a few 
years will be popularly known throughout the 
nation as equal to the very best. Already its 
Graduate School is outstanding in our section 
and the work of the Department of English is 
recognized as the very best in the country. 
Our learned journals — Studies in Philology, the 
Journal of Social Forces, the Blisha Mitchell 
Journal, and the St^niut Historical Journal cir- 
culate throughout the world. Only recently the 
University was elected to the Association of 
American Universities, which is a recognition 
of its high standards by its own peers. 

Student activities are equally healthy. The 
Department of Physical Education is most 
capably directed, and as a result University 
athletic teams have won during the last three 
years 12 State, 3 South Atlantic, and 4 South- 
ern championships. 

As an alumnus n{ the University I believe 
that you will be made happy to have the recent 
amazing growth of the University reduced to 
these concrete terms; and I also believe that 
you are willing and anxious to do anything 
within your power to see that the institution is 
carried forward on this same high level. 

The Davie Poplar 

Here is a letter to the out-of-state 
alumni from a member of the Board of 



1909 SCORES AGAIN 
The class of 1909 has scored 
heavily. Of its 88 living graduates 
(eight are dead), 79 have filled in 
and returned their questionnaires 
to the Central Alumni Office, leav- 
ing only nine delinquents who are 
being rounded up. No other class 
has yet reached this high water 
mark. 



Directors that is calculated to awaken 
many fond memories in the mind of 
every alumnus : 

I wonder if you knew that Ihey have plastered 
the old Davie Poplar — about the short-rib posi- 
tion — with cement; that they have wrapped 
wires aroiuid her neck and tied them to nearby 
trees; and that all in all she appears as vigorous 
today as she did when Davie tied his horse to 
her young body and ate his lunch under its 
shade. 

How would you like to see the old tree again, 
or "Munchie" Toy, or "Old Pres. Ven," or 
Horace Williams, or hear Collier Cobb tell the 
same jokes he told thirty years ago, and with 
the same enthusiasm? 

More than that, how would you like to forget 
that you are a busy man and take off your coat, 
making a pillow of it, and stretch yourself oti 
the lawn of the old campus for a chat with 
those same fellows you knew in college, or 
with someone who has drifted off to Greenland 
or Australia or Utah to make his fortune? 

You need not answer! I knew you would 
like to go back, and going back is made doubly 
interesting this year for those of us who live 
outside of the state, because there is a special 
reunion program designed particularly for us. 
And did you realize that 30 per cent of the 
living alumni are resident outside of North 
Carolina? Did you know that this 30 per cent, 
as a coldblooded fact, is more important to 
the continuing growth of tthe University than 
a 30 per cent living in the state? Alma Mater 
has not forgotten us although we may have felt 
ignored because she has been busy with the 
battle of her life within North Carolina. 

Today there is plenty of room to eat and 
sleep and frolic. There is the best program for 
entertainment which alumni have ever carried 
back to Commencement. You are anxiously ex- 
pected and will be looked for. If you ever 
plan to return to Chapel Hill make it June 8tb 
to 11th when you can not only see University 
and Chapel Hill and the old faculty, hut when 
you can be brought in touch with the large 
nunibers of the rest of us who live outside of 
North Carolina. 

P.S. — How would you like to ride from Dur 
ham to Chapel Hill in 18 minutes? 



DR. T. J. WILSON HONORED 

Dr. T. J. Wilson, Jr., Registrar <if tiic 
University, was elected president of the 
American Association of Collegiate Reg- 
istrars at its recent meeting in Chicago. 
The association has as members registrars 
in most of the leading colleges and uni- 
versities in the United States and Canada. 
There were 160 in attendance from 147 
different institutions representing 37 
states and Canada which had three. 

The selection is viewed as great honor 
and recognition for both Dr. Wilson and 



the University. Dr. Wilson has attended 
the sessions of the association regularly 
lor a number of years and is very popular 
with its members. 

He has been registrar at the University 
for 15 years, during which time the work 
of his office has been so enlarged that he 
now requires three assistants. Eight 
years ago he gave up an associate profes- 
sorship in Latin to devote his whole time 
to the office. He is president of the As- 
sociation of Registrars of Colleges of 
North Carolina which met in Greensboro 
last spring. 



PRAISES PHARMACY SCHOOL 

The School of Pharmacy of the Uni- 
versity is serving the needs of the state 
better than any school of pharmacy in 
the country, according to Dr. Wortley 
F. Rudd, Dean of the School of Phar- 
macy of the Medical College of Vir- 
ginia, who spoke in Chapel Hill re- 
cently under the auspices of the Uni- 
versity branch of the American Phar- 
maceutical Association. He was intro- 
duced by Professor Vernon Howell, 
Dean of the University's School of 
Pharmacy. 

A. L. I. Winne, of Richmond, Va., 
secretary of the Virginia Pharmaceu- 
tical Association and secretary and 
treasurer of the Virginia board of 
pharmacy, discussed the Virginia 
pharmacy laws. Another interesting 
speaker was E. V. Zoeller, an alumnus, 
of Tarboro. 



DEAN BRAUNE HONORED 

Dean G. M. Braune of the School 
of Engineering of the University re- 
ceived the distinction of election to 
honorary membership in Phi Beta 
Kappa, national scholarship fraternity, 
at Washington and Lee University last 
month. Dr. Braune is recognized as 
one of the ablest engineering educators 
in the countrv. 



Dr. George Chandler Whipple, pro- 
lessor of sanitary engineering in 
Harvard University and one of the 
foremost sanitary engineers of the 
country, delivered two public lectures 
in Chapel Hill recently under the aus- 
pices of the North Carolina chapter 
of the Society fo the Sigma X, an 
organization for the promotion of re- 
search. Dr. W. deB. MacNider is 
president of the North Carolina 
chapter.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



OUT-OF-STATE ALUMNI COMING BACK 



Special Program For Their Entertainment — Project Sponsored 
By South Carolina Group 



Out-of-state alumni — those sons of 
the University to whom the word 
Ahiia Mater has the pecuhar enchant- 
ment lent by distance — are coming 
back to the Hill Commencement. The 
University is arranging for them a 
special celebration and will do every- 
thing it can to make them feel at home 
again. 

Of the 11,000 alumni 3,700, or 35 
per cent, live outside the state. They 
are widely scattered from coast to 
coast and reside in virtually every 
country on the face of the globe. This 
is the first attempt ever made to bring 
them back in a body but judging from 
tlie correspondence already in hand 
Secretary Grant has reason to believe 
that they are coming back by the hun- 
dreds. 

Move Begun Last Fall 

This out-of-state project was initi- 
ated last fall and is being propagated 
by the Spartanburg Alumni Associ- 
ation headed by Dr. Robert P. Pell, 
'81, president of Converse College; J. 
W. Alexander, '88, cotton broker, and 
E. S. Lindsay, '19, member of the fac- 
ulty of Converse College. To .give 
publicity to this special program. 
President Pell's committee is being as- 
sisted by committees from the different 
alumni associations in other states and 
by individual alumni wliere there is no 
association. 

There are organized alumni groups 
in New York, Washington, Philadel- 
phia, Baltimore, Richmond, Rock Hill, 
Spartanburg, Atlanta, Jacksonville, 
Birmingham, Norfolk, and other 
places. 

Many Special Features 

Among the features being arranged 
for the entertainment of this gathering 
are a ".get acquainted" smoker on Mon- 
day night of Commencement and a 
dinner on Tuesday night. At the din- 
ner five of the out-of-state alunmi will 
make 12-minute talks covering the Uni- 
versity's administration and its sig- 
nificance under each of its past presi- 
dents. Beginning with the reopening 
in 1875 the periods to be discussed are 
those under the administration of Win- 
ston (1891-1897), Alderman (1897- 
1901), Venable (1901-1914) and Gra- 
ham (1914-1918. Each talk will be 
made by an alumnus who was an un- 
dergraduate during the period lie will 
discuss.

were well attended by a host of young 
ladies from all parts of the state. The 
conduct was excellent; in fact, old- 
timers on the faculty who attend 
these functions regularly say they 
don't remember having seen it better. 

House parties in connection with the 
dances were given by three fraterni- 
ties — Sigma Chi, Delta Kappa Epsilon 
and Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

HEARD AND SEEN AROUND THE WELL 



Thirty representatives from eighteen 
southern colleges attended a recent 
meeting of the Southern Federation of 
College Students at Chapel Hill. The 
men represented student government, 
publications and athletics of their re- 
spective institutions. There were in- 
teresting discussions on all of these 
problems. The Conference went on 
record as being in favor of student 
government concerning itself with 
drinking, although at all the schools 
but two this was not, at present, the 
case. The Conference also went on 
record as favoring the honor system in 
student government, as among the best 
means of educating future leaders of 
the democratic commonwealth. Inter- 
spersed with such business was a ban- 
quet, a dance, and an automobile trip 
to Trinity, State College, Peace, Mere- 
dith, and St. Mary's. All of these oc- 
casions were thoroughly enjoyed and 
resolutions were unanimously adopted 
by the Conference at its last meeting 
thanking President Allsbrook of the 
student body and the University for 
tlie very hospitable treatment accorded 
them here. 

Candidates Are Heard 

The candidates for governor of the 
State of North Carolina have come, 
pronounced their platforms, and gone. 
Large student audiences attended all 
three speeches. The general sentiment 
seems to be that Mr. McLean still 
holds the majority. Mr. Bailey made 
a tremendous impression ; Mr. Meekins 
was a very entertaining speaker and 
was enjoyed even by the Democrats. 
President Allsbrook presided and mem- 
bers of the student body introduced the 
speakers. 

Boxing Increasingly Popular 

.Student interest in boxing seems to 
be rapidly increasing, in spite of the 
set-back which it received when Presi- 
dent Chase decided that Jack Dempsey 
should not be invited to the University. 
A active team is practicing regularly 
and some time this spring there will lie 
a boxing exhibition given by soldiers 
from Fort Bragg. Probably another 
twelve months will see boxing adrled 
to the list of accredite inter-collegi- 
ate sports. 

Easter Dances Excellent 

The Easter dances seemed univer- 
sally acclaimed as the best dances held 
in the University in recent years, in 



point of conduct, music, costumes and 
girls. So far, there has been no word 
of scandal or criticism. The credit for 
this is due to the Executive Committee 
of the German Club, which has as- 
sumed full responsibility for the super- 
vision of the dances and carried that 
responsibility faithfully, without fear 
or favor. 

The writer liappened to be absent 
from the Hill during Easter week, but 
made up for this by attending a mili- 
tary ball at the University of Michi- 
gan. It was an interesting contrast in 
social customs. There is practically 
no breaking at Michigan, no stags, and 
in general a more sedate style of 
(lance. Ordinarily, the same young 
man and young lady danced together 
the whole evening. Yet they seemed 
to enjoy the evening. The absence of 
stags gave the whole occasion a more 
pleasing appearance, but I wondered 
just how the boys and girls could make 
their conversation last the whole eve- 
ning. Someone has suggested that 
breaking is the source of all demoral- 
ization in the modern dance, because it 
makes it necessary for a girl to make 
a vivid impression on her partner 
within about ten steps, lest he fail to 
come back for another dance. This 
effect to make a vivid impression every 
ten steps is claimed as the source of all 
evil. 

Carolina Buccaneer Out 

The Carolina Buccaneer has come 
out and received a very favorable wel- 
come. Nothing in it is more univer- 
sally applauded than the picture of the 
college sheik at home for the holidays, 
driving along a country road in a 
dilapidated old vehicle. 

Phi Beta Kappa Initiates 

The annual Phi Beta Kappa initi- 
ation was featured by an address by 
President Chase on Science and Tradi- 
tion. Scholarship still seems to appeal 
to students at the University of North 
Carolina, The following men were 
found worthy of membership in this 
organization for the promotion of in- 
tellectual work: W. J. Cocke, Ashe- 
ville; O. R. Rowe, Charlotte: G. C. 
Seyffert. Elizabeth City; E. M. Arm- 
field. Greensboro: H. K. Fuller, Brad- 
entown, Fla. ; V. R. Sink, Winston- 
Salem ; V. A. Hoyle, Manteo ; Dwight 
Plyler, Monroe; M. K. Hearne, Mac- 
clesfield ; C. N. Siewers, Winston- 
Salem; W. D. White, Beaufort. 



The Golden Fleece 

By the time this issue of the 
Alumni Review comes out, the 
Golden Fleece will have held its tap- 
ping and there will be hearts both 
proud and sad. Both the tapping and 
the initiation have expanded in recent 
years until they are both rather thrill- 
ing occasions. 

Appreciation of Our Own 

The writer has just returned from a 
visit to the University of Chicago, 
Northwestern. the University of 
Michigan. City College and Princeton 
University. There are many things 
at all these places which would lead 
one to break the tenth commandment. 
Of all of them. Princeton probably has 
the most beautiful buildings and 
campus. On the way home I could not 
help feeling a little envious, but when 
I reached Chapel Hill and the green 
and lights and shadows of its wonder- 
ful trees and foliage forced themselves 
on my attention, I realized that the 
University of North Carolina has a 
fund of natural beauty which is not 
surpassed at any University in the 
LTnited States. If we can make our 
buildings and our landscape worthy of 
our trees, our arboretum and our sky, 
the University of the future will edu- 
cate all who come to it to a deeper ap- 
preciation of the beautiful things in 
life. I was reminded of a poem which 
I heard recently, in the concluding 
lines of which the writer suggested 
that his own epitaph be as follows : 
"Here lies one who was just a little 
overcome by the beauty of the world." 

Remarkable Debating Record 

The debating teams have won three 
out of the last four contests, defeating 
Tulane, George Washington and Se- 
wanee. and by the time this goes to 
press, will have met their old rivals, 
Johns Hopkins, and let's hope that the 
record will be four out of five. There 
is some tendency on the part of the 
debating teams to change the method 
of debating, using what Professor 
Williams calls, "the descriptive rather 
than the analytic method." Those who 
object to the change find it hard right 
now to justify their objections, but it 
may be in the long run they will be 
sustained. To have won 70 percent of 
our inter-collegiate debates over a 
period of several decades certainly 
justifies the form of method to con- 
sideration. — F. F, B., '16.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



UNIVERSITY MOURNS DEATH OF GENERAL CARR 



The University of North CaroHna 
has lost one of its most loyal and de- 
voted friends — General Julian S. Carr, 
who passed away at the home of his 
daughter in Chicago on April 29 fol- 
lowing a short illness of pneumonia. 

General Carr was closely identified 
for many years with the life of the 
University. He had long served as n 
member of its board of trustees and of 
its executive committee and always 
manifested a true interest in its wel- 
fare. The alumni held General Carr 
in the highest regard and twice in suc- 
cession selected him president of the 
General Alumni Association. At Com- 
mencement last June the University, in 
recognition of his service to the insti- 
tution and state, conferred on him the 
honorary degree of doctor of laws. 

A Great Benefactor 

General Carr testified by many bene- 
factions to the warm place that Caro- 
lina held in his heart. He was the 
donor of the Carr dormitory, erected 
in 1900; of the Carr Fellow.ship. 
awarded each year to a member of the 
rising senior class who as a self-help 
student has made a distinctive record ; 
and of the Julian Carr prize in chemis- 
try, given in memory of his son. 

President Chase said of liim: "He 
was one of the most loyal and devoted 
friends the University ever had. This 
institution joins in deep and genuine 
sorrow with the entire state in his 
loss." 

General Carr was soldier, manufac- 
turer, banker, philanthropist and for 
many years one of the most conspicu- 
ous figures in the life of North Caro- 
lina. He was born in Chapel Hill on 
October 12, 1845, the son of John 
Wesley and Elizabeth Pannill Carr. 
He attended the village schools and en- 
tered the University when only 16 
years old. Before he had finished his 
course, there was a demand for re- 
cruits to fill General Lee's depleted 
ranks and he abandoned his studies to 
don the uniform of a Confederate sol- 
dier. He enlisted as a private in Com- 
pany K, Third North Carolina regi- 
ment, in Barringer's brigade, Hampton 
Corps, Army of Northern Virginia. 
After his service under the Stars and 
Bars, he returned to Chapel Hill and 
entered business with his father. He 
later spent a year in Arkansas, return- 
ing to North Carolina in 1870. 




General Julian S. Carr, '66 

Moves to Durham 

Soon after his return. General Carr 
purchased for $4,000 a third interest in 
a tobacco partnership, which W. T. 
Blackwell and J. R. Day were conduct- 
ing at Durham. General Carr took 
charge of the financial management of 
the struggling tobacco factory, and it 
is said that it was due to his skilled 
handling of the business that it made 
such rapid strides. 

General Carr during his latter years 
gave freely of his time and money to 
various causes, both educational and 
pliilanthropic. He served as a member 
of the board of trustees of the Univer- 
sity, president of the board of the Dur- 
ham public library and president of the 
North Carolina Children's Home So- 
ciety, trustee of the Methodist orphan- 
age at Raleigh, Greensboro College for 
Women and many other public insti- 
tutions. 

Devoted to Confederacy 

General Carr was always greatly de- 
voted to the cause of the Confederate 
soldier and gave freely of his time to 
the promotion of the United Veterans' 
.Association of the Confederate states. 
\\'hen the North Carolina division was 
organized he became its commander 
and was elected annually to that posi- 



tion until promoted as lieutenant gen- 
eral in command of the Army of 
Northern Virginia. In 1921, he was 
elected commander in chief of the 
Southern Confederate Veterans' asso- 
ciation and served in that position for 
two 3'ears. He was a familiar figure 
at both State and National reunions, 
and took great delight in mingling with 
tlie "Boys in Gray." He himself al- 
ways wore the gray when he attended 
these reunions. He paid the e.xpenses 
of hundreds of veterans to these re- 
unions. 

An Active Democrat 

General Carr was always an active 
Democrat, and made large contribu- 
tions for campaigns as well as 
taking a prominent part in the party 
councils. Although never holding pub- 
lic office. General Carr did aspire at 
one time to be governor but virtually 
declined the Democratic nomination in 
1896 because of business engagements. 
In 1900, North Carolina and Idaho 
complimented him with their votes for 
the \'ice Presidency. In the same year 
he became a candidate for the United 
States Senate, but was defeated by 
Senator Simmons. 

General Carr was eight times a dele- 
gate at large to the National Demo- 
cratic convention, attending the last 
one in San Ffancisco in 1920. He was 
a gifted speaker and was never so 
liappy as when making an address to 
Iiis fellow citizens, whether in political 
conclave, church conference or at some 
civic gathering. 

Loved His Fellowman 

In addition to his other numerous 
interests. General Carr established a 
model farm near Durham and spent 
considerable time there in his latter 
years. 

Deeply devoted as he was to the 
cause of the Confederate soldier and 
greatly interested as he ever continued 
to be in politics. General Carr con- 
fessed when he was elected com- 
mander-in-chief of the Confederate 
\'eterans that he was most interested 
in the Southern Memorial Association, 
whose chief work has been the building 
of a Confederate Battle Abbey in 
Richmond, Va. Here are to be pre- 
served the momentoes of the confeder- 
acy for future years. General Carr 
contributed substantially in means to 
this institution.

CAROLINA makes; ?CLEAN SWEEP OF VIRGINIA SERIES 



Fetzer Team Makes Successful Invasion of Old Dominion 
State — Lose Three Games 



Carolina made a clean sweep of the 
baseball games with Virginia this sea- 
son, winning in Charlottesville, Chapel 
Hill and Greensboro. As the Review 
goes to press the Tar Heels have 
played twelve games and lost three. 
Victories have been scored over Guil- 
ford, Elon, Trinity, V. P. I., Washing- 
ton and Lee, Virginia, and Hampden- 
Sidney, while credited to the defeat 
column are games with Lenoir, Wake 
Forest and Davidson. 

Carolina got off to a good start by 
capturing the opening contest with 
Guliford 6 to 0. The Tar Heels sewed 
the game up in the fourth inning as a 
result of a home run by "Casey" Mor- 
ris, with AIcDonald, Bonner and Car- 
michael on bases. Captain Herman 
Bryson and Bill Ferebee divided the 
pitching, allowing but four liits be- 
tween them. 

Goes Ten Innings 

The game with Elon went 10 in- 
nings, Carolina winning 3 to 2. It was 
"Hoot" Gibson, Carolina's right 
fielder, who turned the trick when he 
slashed out a triple in the ninth that 
sent Dodderer across the plate with 
the winning run. Bryson for Carolina 
and Barker for Elon were the oppos- 
ing hurlers. 

Captain Bryson twirled one of the 
greatest games of his career in the 
game with Trinity in Durham on 
April 19, which the Tar Heels won 1 
to 0. It was a pretty pitching duel be- 
tween the Carolina hurler and Sander- 
son for the iMethodists, each allowing 
only three hits. 

Davidson Springs Surprise 

The annual Easter Monday game in 
Gastonia was dropped to Davidson by 
the score of 7 to 6. Carolina had ap- 
parently sewed the game up when 
Boushee, Davidson's centerfielder, 
parked one with two men on bases, 
making the score 6 to 5 after Davidson 
had come from behind in her half of 
the eighth and scored three. Ferebee 
started for Carolina and was going 
good. He was removed in the fifth 
when the score stood 3 to 2 in favor 
of Carolina, and Moore was substi- 
tuted. He was wild and walked three 
and hit one, two runs for Davidson 
counting. Povner was then sent in for 




"Casey" Morris, one of Carolina's best 
rounded athletes, who is the "Home-Run King" 
of tha University squad. He captained last 
vear's nine. 

Carolina and the Wild Cats jumped on 
him for three runs. Coltrane followed 
Povner in the ninth and dropped two 
more runs to Davidson before the on- 
slaught ceased. Laird pitched for 
Davidson. 

Lenoir was met in Hickory and 
Carolina again lost, 3 to L Moose, 
pitching for Lenoir, kept his hits well 
scattered and had fine assistance in the 
outfield. Five hits were garnered ofT 
Bryson who struck out nine men and 
walked one. The single pass he issued 
accounted for a run. Moose gave up 
si.x hits, fanned si.x and walked none. 

Carolina Invades Virginia 

Tiie Tar Heels next invaded \"ir- 
ginia and defeated in succession V. P. 
L, Washington and Lee and the Uni- 
versity of Virginia, the Tar Heels de- 
feating their ancient rivals 7 to 4 be- 
fore a crowd of 3,000 persons. Bry- 
son pitched for Carolina, while Vir- 
irinia used Lee and Holland. 



Returning to Chapel Hill, the Tar 
Heels played an erratic game against 
Wake Forest on April 29 and the Bap- 
tists won 10 to 3. The Tar Heels 
made seven errors, while Wake Forest 
chalked up four. Bryson was driven 
from the moimd in the second inning 
and Ferebee and Coltrane who suc- 
ceeded him fared even worse. Jones 
pitclied for the Baptists and yielded six 
hits. 

Carolina defeated Virginia 3 to 2 in 
the second game of the series in 
Chapel Hill on May 2, but it required 
the Tar Heels 10 innings to do it. A 
crowd of 5,000 witnessed the contest. 
It was "Rabbit" Bonner, lead off man 
in the eighth inning who started things 
humming with a double to center. A 
single by Coffey, Morris' sacrifice fly 
and an error by the Virginia catcher 
sent Bonner and Coffey over the plate 
with two runs, tying the score. In the 
tenth with two men on bases "Touch- 
down" Jones smote the ball through 
sliortstop and sent Morris home with 
the winning run. Bryson and Holland 
(lid the pitching. 

Take Virginia Series 

The third game in Greensboro on 
May 3 was a slugfest which Carolina 
got the best of and won 13 to 9. The 
contest, as usual, was played at Cone 
Park and a crowd estimated at 7,000 
persons looked on. Virginia tried hard 
to prevent a clean sweep of the series, 
but Captain Bryson, Carolina's premier 
hurler who had already taken 10 Vir- 
ginia scalps, rushed into the fray in 
the third inning and, relieving Col- 
trane, held the game in the palm of his 
hand until the ninth when a late rally 
almost caused the Tar Heels trouble. 
Three Virginia hurlers — Board, Ma- 
lihis and Holland, tried desperately to 
stem the tide of Tar Heel hitters. 

A home run by "Casey" Morris in 
the foin'lh inning, coupled with excel- 
lent pitching by Bill Ferebee gave 
Carolina a closely earned victory of 3 
to 2 over Hampden-Sidney in Chapel 
Hill on May 7. Ferebee yielded six 
hits as compared with 4 by Brena- 
nian. the Virginia hurler.

THE Alumni reVie.w 



MEETINGS IN OTHER STATES ATTENDED BY MANY ALUMNI 



Secretary Grant Meets With Groups in Richmond, Washington and Baltimore 

Finds Them Enthusiastic 



Daniel L. Grant, Alumni Secretary, 
went North last month in the interest 
of the out-of-state reunions. 

"There is every reason to believe 
that alumni living outside the state are 
going to return in large numbers for 
the special reunion being held for them 
this year for the first time," he said 
on his return. "Everywhere I found 
the University's former students home- 
sick for a touch of Alma Mater and 
anxious to revisit the state." 

Secretary Grant first went to Char- 
lottesville where he addressed the an- 
nual conference of the Association of 
Alumni Secretaries and Alumni Maga- 
zine Associated. Then he attended 
alumni meetings in Richmond, Wash- 
ington, Baltimore and New York. 

His speech in Charlottesville is said 
to have been freely characterized from 
the floor as "the most timely one dur- 
ing the conference." The meeting in 
Richmond was especially enthusiastic 
and resulted in the election of the fol- 
lowing officers : Phil Woolcott, presi- 
dent; Benjamin Bell, vice president; 
O. R. Cunningham, secretary-treasurer. 

Speakers at the Washington meeting 
included Edgar Turlington, who re- 
cently returned from Constantinople ; 
Frank Graham, on leave of absence 
from the University faculty, and Wade 
Atkinson, president of the District of 
Columbia Alumni Association. 

Capt. Emerson Honor Guest 

Captain Isaac Emerson, former resi- 
dent of Chapel Hill who provided for 
the erection of Emerson Stadium, was 
the guest of honor and principal 
speaker at the Baltimore meeting. 
Plans were made for a big meeting 
next October 12 when the Maryland 
alumni will be guests of Captain Emer- 
son. The following officers were 
elected : Captain Emerson, honorary 
president: Dr. E. H. Kloman, presi- 
dent; Dr. H. S. Willis, vice-president, 
and Thomas M. Ramseur, secretary- 
treasurer.

a conference with the executive com- 
mittee, of which George Gordon Bat- 
tle, is chairman.

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS HEAR 

CANDIDATES FOR GOVERNOR 

The three candidates for governor 
addressed University students in Me- 
morial Hall last month. Josiah W. 
Bailey came first and then Col. Isaac 
M. Meekins, the Republican candidate, 
and Angus Wilton McLean, the other 
Democratic candidate. All the ad- 
dresses were well attended and the stu- 
dents seemed to enjoy them. 

Mr. McLean was a member of the 
law class of 1892 and naturally he was 
warmly welcomed on the campus. He 
spent a day and night in Chapel Hill 
and took a good look-in on all the new 
developments. He, as well as the other 
candidates, had many words of praise 
for the University. He predicted an 
enrollment of 5,000 in from five to ten 
years at least. He has visited and 
studied many other institutions but 
said the University was the most demo- 
cratic institution that has come under 
his observation. 

President Chase entertained each of 
the candidates during their stay on the 
Hill. 



Fifty girls from Peace Institute, 
Raleigh, under the direction of Col. 
Fred A. Olds, paid a sight-seeing visit 
to the Hill recently. They arrived 
early in the morning in two big busses 
and spent the day visiting the various 
points of interest on the Hill. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW

THE UNIVERSITY IN PRINT 



Dr. William MacNider 
Writing- under tlie date line of 
Ricliniond, Va., on April 21. Dr. J. 
K. Hall, '01, of Westbrook Sanator- 
ium, sent the Greensboro Daily Nczvs 
the following letter concerning Dr. 
VV. deB. MacNider, '05, of the Uni- 
versity Medical School : 

Unfortunately only a small percentage 
of the young men of North Carolina be- 
come students in the State University ; 
of these only a few study medicine, and 
in that manner come under the tutelage 
of Dr. William de Berniere MacNider. 
But these young men immediately be- 
come impresed by the fact that they are 
being taught by a master man. 

He is a remarkable man and a won- 
derful teacher. He is interested only in 
leading his students in search of .the 
truth. He looks neither up nor down — 
except into his microscope. Every man 
is his potential equal ; he has no superior. 
Everybody lives in the same plane with 
him. He is saturated with the spirit of 
democracy, but he probably does not 
realize it. He is entirely devoid of every 
tinge of snobishness found sometimes 
in the mind debauched by learning. 

Much — indeed most — of his time is 
spent in his laboratory, but he is inter- 
ested in everything that appeals to hu- 
man beings. He loves folks. The Uni- 
versity boys all love him. They go to 
him with their problems and their trou- 
bles. They talk to him as frankly as 
to their own roommates. He is their 
father-confessor. He inspires them. He 
gives himself to them. 

It is little wonder the learned men of 
France know of him through his work. 
Although he still looks like a boy, because 
the spirit of youth radiates from him, 
his name is found listed for the past 
20 years in every article in every medi- 
cal journal on the globe in which diseases 
of the kidneys are discussed. He proba- 
bly knows more about inflammatory di- 
seases of these organs than any other 
living man. 

And he is entirely a product of the 
State — even in education. He is a gradu- 
ate in medicine of the medical department 
of the University that functioned for a 
few brief years in Raleigh. His scholar- 
ship, his patient and honest search after 
truth, his eminence in the profession of 
medicine all tend to belie modern state- 
ments that a small medical school, un- 
endowed and uncontrolled by steel or 
oil, cannot adequately educate a man. A 
few MacNidcrs, certain apparatus, a cer- 
tain number of sick people, and intelli- 
gent students would make a first class 
medical college anywhere on earth. 

In the world of science he is Pro- 
fessor William de Berniere MacNider; 
amongst his friends he is plain, honest, 
wholesome, lovable Bill MacNider. He 



constitutes one of the reasons for the 
profound impress the University is mak- 
ing on the people of the state. 



Dr. Alderman to Be Wilson Speaker 

Press dispatches from Wasnin.-ton. 
D. C, on April 22nd carried the in- 
formation that at the special request 
of Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, President 
Edwin A. Alderman, '82, of the Uni- 
versity of Virginia, has been selected 
to deliver an eulogy of the late Presi- 
dent to a joint meeting of the Senate 
and House of Representatives. 

The joint memorial service in honor 
of America's war President will be 
held some time in December, shortly 
after Congress reassembles, the exact 
date to be fixed later. The service will 
be attended by members of the various 
diplomatic corps stationed in Washing- 
ton, Cabinet members and other offi- 
cials. It is possible that special emis- 
saries will be sent by the principal 
powers in honor of the late President, 
and the service will be in the nature of 
an international tribute. 

President Alderman was chosen as 
a close friend of President Wilson, 
with whom he was associated in edu- 
cational work and authorship before 
his elevation to the presidency. 

It is said to be without precedent 
for an orator not officially connected 
with Congress or the administration 
to be selected for the honor conferred 
on Dr. Alderman. 



Knowledge In Religion 

That knowledge is not something 
reserved to the scientist and denied to 
the religious believer is the text of a 
volume of lectures ("Religious Certi- 
tude in an Age of Science." 12 mo. 
Cloth. $1.50) now published by the 
University of North Carolina Press. 
The author is Charles Allen Dinsmore, 
Professor of Spiritual Interpretation 
of Literature in the Vale Divinity 
School. The lectures were delivered 
before the students of the University 
of North Carolina as part of a series 
established by the late Rev. John Cal- 
vin McNair, of the class of 1849. 

The lectures are conceived in ad- 
mirable spirit, absolutely removed 
from the atmosphere of controversy, 
and written in a style which makes 
easy reading; to have listened to their 
delivery must have been a delight. 



Written for young men and women 
who are at the threshold of maturity 
and confronted with the question of 
adjusting childhood's ideas about the 
Infinite to the results of ever increas- 
ing knowledge in other departments of 
thinking and knowing, this volume 
will be of value and comfort to all 
who will read with open minds and 
without fear of what may happen to 
dogma, either in the church or in the 
laboratory. For the author has no 
love for either the religious or the 
scientific dogmatist. Of the former 
he says : "His iron creed will never 
open to receive new truth, and the 
pain of a new idea is intolerable;" 
of the latter; "The narrowest, the 
most opinionated, the most supercilious 
persons one finds in our seats of learn- 
ing are the little scientists, who have 
sunk so deep into their constricted 
specialty that they cannot see beyond 
its confines." — Ashcinlle Citisen. 



Daniels Writes Life of Wilson 

Josephus Daniels, '87, Secretary of 
the Navy 1913-1921, is the author of 
"The Life of Woodrow Wilson, 1856- 
1924." The volume, of 381 pages, is 
published by the John C. Winston 
Company, of Philadelphia, contains a 
frontispiece of President Wilson, to- 
gether with thirty odd illustrations, 
is handsomely bound in blue cloth with 
gold stamp, and has been placed on 
sale at $2.50 a copy. 

The popularity of the volume has 
been instantaneous and unusually well 
merited. Mr. Daniels does not profess 
to present a full portrayal and lasting 
appraisement of the life of President 
Wilson, which can only be prepared 
following a careful examination of 
original papers and letters ; but he 
does profess, and w-ith admirable suc- 
cess in the accomplishment, to help 
the fellow countrymen of Woodrow 
Wilson to visualize his devotion to 
their weal and his consecration to the 
cause of human freedom. 

At the time this note is being writ- 
ten, the first printing of 30,000 copies 
has been sold and a second printing 
of 20,000 copies is on the press, which, 
in itself, is an eloquent evidence of the 
appeal which the volume has made to 
the American public. 



Dr. Alvin S. Wheeler read two 
papers before the American Chemical 
Society in Washington recently.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



OUT-OF-STATE ALUMNI ANXIOUS TO GET BACK 



In response to his efforts to get a 
large number of out-of-state alumni 
back for their special reunion Alumni 
Secretary Grant has received numer- 
ous encouraging letters, some of which 
are reprinted below : 

Nevada 

M. B. Alston. '96, of Goldfield, Nevada. 
writes : 

You see one gets pretty lonesome out 
here for the association of his old com- 
rades of the Hill. The ugliest imaginable 
alumnus would be a vision of light to 
these old eyes. Of course I have a pre- 
judice in favor of the Tar Heels any- 
way. From what I gather from the press 
North Carolina is doing a great and glori- 
ous turn for the education and general 
up-lift. No wonder, for it is peopled by 
the white-legged Anglo-Saxons that fil- 
tered into its borders now 200 years or 
more ago. 

Kentucky 

Dr. H. E. Mechling. '98, of Louisville, 
Ky., writes : 

You have a just cause for calling for 
the assistance of the alumni and I would 
not be true to my obligations if I did not 
respond. I shall be glad to cooperate 
with you in any way within my power in 
getting the alumni in this vicinity organ- 
ized. 

California 

William P. Hubbard, '94, of San Fran- 
cisco, Cal., says in part : 

I wrote to every alumnus in California 
who address you handed me and have re- 
ceived 15 responses. They are scattered 
throughout the whole State and it is ex- 
ceedingly difficult to get them lined up. 
However, there are a few of us around 
the bay here and you can put me down as 
the one who will attempt an organization 
in California. 

Arizona 

H. C. Heffner, '21, member of the 
faculty of the University of Arizona at 
Tuscon, says : 

I have your letter concerning the spe- 
cial reunion of out-of-state alumni at re- 
union Commencement. I shall be glad to 
render any cooperation within my power 
to the committee. Just let me know 
what you want done and I shall be glad 
to do it. 

I expect to be at the University Com- 
mencement. 

As I have told you before, never hesi- 
tate to call upon me to be of assistance 
to you in any way that I can. 




Maine 

'18, 



of Portland, 



Gregory Graham, 
Maine, writes : 

I will be more than glad to be of any 
possible assistance both in Maine and in 
North Carolina. Please command me. 



Robert P. Pell, '81, President of Converse 
College, Chairman of the out-of-state reunion 
committee. 

Arkansas 

J. W. Greening, '16, of El Dorado, 
Ark., writes. 

I have been wanting to assist you all 
possible, but up to now haven't had the 
chance ; if it is not now too late you can 
shoot what you had loaded. 

Nebraska 

W. A. Prout, of the University of Ne- 
braska, Lincoln, Neb., writes : 

I w'as very glad to receive your letter 
of March 28th and to note the plans of 
the Alumni Association to have a special 
reunion for the alumni who live outside 
of North Carolina. 

If there is anything I can do to bring 
about a closer cooperation, I assure you 
it will be a pleasure for me to do what I 
can. 

Mexico 

A. J. Warren, '11, who is with the De- 
partmento de Salubridad Publica, Mexico 
City, D. F., writes : 

Your letter of March 27, addressed to 
me at Portland, Oregon, was received 
here yesterday. 

The suggestions contained in your let- 
ter regarding alumni who live outside the 
State of North Carolina are good, and I 
am in sympathy with your desire to bring 
them in touch with the University. I wish 
it were possible for me to represent the 
State of Oregon. I was transferred from 
Oregon last September and I have lived 
in Mexico since last December, arriving 
in Vera Cruz the day after a revolution 
was begun. I was isolated there until 
the tenth of January when I left the city

came to Mexico City by rail. 



If you know of alumni here I should be 
pleased to know of them as I expect to

Georgia 

J. W. Speas, Secretary of the Georgia 
Alumni Association, 57 North Forsyth 
street, Atlanta, Ga., writes : 

Your telegram with reference to the 
special reunion of all University of North 
Carolina alumni living outside North 
Carolina was received and read at the 
meeting of the Georgia alumni. The 
movement wliich you have originated was 
very highly commended and by unanimous 
vote of all those present I was instructed 
to advise you that our Association will 
cooperate with you in every possible way 
and we will endeavor to have a good rep- 
resentation at the reunion. 

Clarvoe oij West Coast- 
Frank A. Clarvoe, '19, who is with the 
United Press Associations in San Fran- 
cisco, writes : 

I admit I'm a shiftless lackwit and 
all the rest of it, so go ahead and loose 
the slings and arrows of outraged en- 
deavor. 

Everything that I can think of is here 
on this blank, and my mind's blank after 
having made it out. I had hoped to fill 
out your blank when I made out my in- 
come tax, that being the best time for 
filling 'em, but I had no strength left and 
got the income by under the eye of the 
authorities. So you see ! 

I've probably spelled some Hill names 
wrong, and am not certain what literary 
society I belonged to, and there being two 
of them, it was all the more difficult. 
Had there been a number, my range of 
selection would have been broader. I be- 
lieve I guessed right, however. 

However, that's what a fellow gets for 
failing to keep in touch with things at 
Carolina, and I have only myself to 
blame. There are a few alumni here, but 
I see little of them and should see more. 
More excuses for that crime of omission ! 
Believe me, however, and you can tell 
anybody you want to that I said so — that 
some of my fondest memories are of the 
Hill and of those who were there with 
me. God Bless 'em — and Carolina. 

Finds Carolina Leading 
Richard Thomas Wyche, '93, president 
of the National Story Tellers League, 
Washington, D. C, writes : 

So far as I am able to judge from a 
personal inspection of all the State uni- 
versities and colleges in the South and 
Southwest the University of North Caro- 
lina is leading thom all; and there are 
only one or two exceptions elsewhere.

Long Out for Lieutenant-Governor 

Durham is going strong for J. Elmer 
Long for lieutenant-governor. Since the 
announcement of his candidacy many of 
his friends have been working for him. 
Last night an enthusiastic meeting of 
prominent Democrats of the city met in 
the ballroom of the Piedmont club for the 
purpose of organizing a Long-For-Lieu- 
tenant-Governor club. The men present 
pledged themselves to wage a campaign 
for the Durham man and the organization 
was perfected with the following as offi- 
cers : Dr. J. M. Manning, president : W. 
N. Keener, first vice president ; M. E. 
Newsom, second vice president ; Oscar G. 
Barker, secretary ; Judge H. H. Sykes, 
campaign manager, and Sumter C. Braw- 
ely. campaign secretary. — Press dispatch 
n'f April 10. 

Editor's — Mr. Long is a member of the 
class of 1905. 

A Marvelous Operation 

Medical men were quite thrilled last 
month by the work of Dr. John B. 



The Biisiness Manager says: 

It looks like the Review subscrib- 
ers are going to do away with the 
customary summer bill collector. 

Already 38 per cent have paid up 
for 1923-24 and the others need 
only to be reminded that it's just a 
few weeks until Commencement. 

This is a pretty healthy state of 
affairs and we are not worrying in 
the least about outstanding ac- 
counts. The subscribers can be de- 
pended upon to send in their checks 
by June. 



Wright. '98, in Rex Hospital. Raleigh, 
when he removed from the windpipe of a 
child a full coffee grain which had been 
lodged for more than a week. 

The grain had gone through the wind- 
pipe to the lung and pneumonia had de- 
veloped. The X-ray could do little to 
aid in spotting the seed because the af- 
fection of the lung had interfered with 
the machine. Nevertheless, Dr. Wright, 
who a few days before had taken a big 
badge from another child's windpipe, fol- 
lowed the grain through the windpipe and 
pushed it from its lodgment. 

Meet in Canal Zone 

Alexander B. Andrews, '93, and Dr. 
John M. Tamraz, '15, write the Review 
as follows from Cristobad, Canal Zone : 

"Two University of North Carolina 
alumni meet far from Chapel Hill and 
.send greetings." 

The Tar Sticks 

Josephus Daniels, editor of the News 
and Observer, writing editorially from 
Mississippi on April 30, tells of a inter- 
esting meeting with another University 
alumnus, Paul Hosier, Law '98, as' fol- 
lows in part : 

"This is the paradise of the cotton 
grower," said Paul Hosier to me as we 
drove through the rich delta country from 
Indianola on the way to Vicksburg. He 
is a Tar Heel, educated at Elon College 
and the University of North Carolina and 
resident of Greenville, Pitt county, in his 
youth. The tar is on the heels of most 
Tar Heel-born folks I meet far from the 
place of their birth. 

It sticks — does this tar. And when my 
train was ten miles away from Indianola. 
this former North Carolinian came 
aboard to greet an old acquaintance he 
hadn't seen since he was in Raleigh in 
1898 at the funeral of Worth Bagley. 
And the questions he asked, and his grate- 
ful recollections of old teachers at Elon 
College, of Dr. Manning and Judge Shep- 
herd under whom he read law at Chapel 
Hill showed that residence away from the 



State for over a score of years had not 
(lulled his interest in the old mother. 

Mr. Hosier came out here on what he 
thought was a brief trip with a friend 
who was selling Van Lindley's fruit trees. 
He had no idea of staying. He had what 
the lawyers call "the animus revertendi.' 
But something happened that changes all 
calculations. He fell in love with a beau- 
tiful Mississippi girl. Vou know the rest. 
So he has given his life to doing some- 
thing bigger than making two blades of 
grass grow where one formerly grew, an 
industry that he has developed that means 
big things for Mississippi and should be 
carried on more extensively in North 
Carolina. 

"I became interested," he said, "in the 
pecan industry. I had learned how prolific 
pecan trees were and it occurred to me 
that if many uncultivated acres were 
planted in pecans it would afford what 
would be largely a new source of wealth." 

"Lefty" Wilson Signs 

"Lefty" Wilson, star southpaw of the 
Tobacconists last year, will wear the same 
uniform during the coming season. Herb 
Murphy has just closed an interesting 
triangular deal under the terms of which 
Wilson, now assistant physical director in 
the city schools here is secured from Wil- 
son, Floyd Trexler goes to the Wilson 
club in the Virginia league, title to his 
services being secured from the Birming- 
ham team in the Southern association. It 
now remains to be seen if Trexler, the 
Babe Ruth of the Danville champs last 
season, can come to terms with Wilson. 
The deals were cinched by wire last 
night. — Press dispatch fnuii Danville Va.,

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Dunnagan Leaves Citizen 

M. R'. Dunnagan, who has been Man- 
aging Editor of The Citizen since the first 
of last June has resigned his position with 
this newspaper and will engage in special 
newspaper and magazine writing. Mr. 
Dunnagan is a trained and capable news- 
paper man. He leaves the Citizen with 
the good will and esteem of the manage- 
ment and all those connected with the 
paper. 

The entire staff wishes him the best of 
luck in his new field. He should make a 
great success in it. — Editorial in AsJievillc 
Citizen in April. 

Editor's note — Mr. Dunnagan is a 
member of the class of 1914 and a gradu- 
ate of the Columbia University School of 
Journalism. He was formerly city editor 
of the Winslon-Satcm Journal and Char- 
lotte Observer. 

Tarn Bowie a Candidate 

In an interview to the Winston-Salem 
Journal Tam C. Bowie, of Ashe County, 
author of the Bowie Railroad Bill to re- 
deem the "lost provinces" and co-author 
of the $50,000,000 good roads bill, an- 
nounced his candidacy before the Demo- 
crats of the state for lieutenant-governor. 

Mr. Bowie was speaker of the House 
in 1915, represented Ashe County in the 
Legislature of 1909, 1913, 1915 and 1921. 
He is an alumnus of University of North 
Carolina, where he received his Ph.D. de- 
gree. He attended the law schools of 
the University and Yale and did post- 
graduate work at Yale in 1900 in political 
and social science. 

Mr. Bowie has had an active political 
career in the West, carrying Ashe County 
by a close margin in several spectacular 
battles. The county is in the doubtful 
column as to its political complexion at 
times going Democratic and then the 
other way and it has proven fertile ground 
even in recent years for the species of 
politics so sensational in the 80's and 90's. 

News from "Varsity" Bell 

F. D. (Varsity) Bell, '21, who is direc- 
tor of Camp Mondamin at Tuxedo, N. 
C, writes : 

Ever since last September the Madam 
and I have been bumming around Califor- 
nia, Texas, and points west. Ever since 
last March 2, we've been papa and mama 
to a little Irish girl with a red headed dis- 
position, and an especially proud dad. 

That first short paragraph contains the 
principal news you could possibly find 
about me. My chief occupation is running 
the best boys' camp in the country, and 
since it keeps the wife and me pretty 
busy in the summer when other people 
are vacationing, we decided to take ours in 
the winter, so as not to be outdone alto- 
gether. We came out here and have had 
a great time. Expect to start toward the 
best state in the Union again in about 
three weeks, or less. Will have to stop 
over in New Orleans and Atlanta on 



ALUMNI ELECTIONS 

Ten thousand alumni — those 
whose addresses are known — are be- 
ing mailed ballots this month with 
the request that they take advan- 
tage of this opportunity to express 
themselves as to the choice of offi- 
cers to head the General Alumni 
Association. 

A president and a first and a 
second vice-president are to be 
elected for a one-year term. Three 
members are to be elected to the 
Board of Directors for a term of 
three years each. There are nine 
members of the board. To insure 
that this be a continuing body, only 
three of its members retire annu- 
ally and three are elected for a 
three-year term. As no previous 
elections have been held on this 
basis, the incoming president is to 
complete the inauguration of this 
plan by appointing three directors 
for a one-year term and three for 
a two-year term. 

Ballots must be returned to the 
Central office before 6 p. m. on 
June 9. The president of the As- 
sociation will designate a special 
Committee to canvass the returns. 
The elections will be reported at 
the General Assembly of the Asso- 
ciation on Tuesday, June 10, 
Alumni Day, when the new officers 
will be installed. 

Here are the alumni nominated: 

President: A. B. Andrews, '93, 
andW. N. Everett, '86. 

First Vice-President: C. F. Har- 
vey, '92, and J. G. Murphy, '01. 

Second Vice-President. C. W. 
Tillett, Jr., '09, and Clem Wright, 
'86. 

Directors: 0. A. Hamilton, '10; 
K. P. Lewis, '09; Robert C. de- 
Rosset, '18; F. E. Winslow, '09; 
A. H. Vann, '02; J. W. Umstead, 
Jr., '09. 



camp business, but hope to be back home 
in time to get to the Hill for commence- 
ment. 

Mondamm has really been a great suc- 
cess, and I am very proud of it. And any 
time you, or any other good member of 
'21 has a chance, be sure to drop in and 
see us in operation. And when any of 
you have a son old enough, send for appli- 
cation blank early— the number is limited.

MARK 






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 otherj, make 
of racket.

The reunion committee consists of Jacl< 
Powell, permanent president. Theodore 
Rondthaler, Luther Hodges. Parkhill 
Jarvis. Forrest Miles. Nat Gooding. How- 
ard Hooker. Enoch Price and Renny 
Cuthbertson in addition to the secretary. 
A majority of these met at the Hill re- 
cently and "cooked-up" plans for a "hum- 
dinger" of a five-year reunion, the details 
of which are to be contained in a special 
'19 Reunion Bulletin, which is to be 
mailed to the members of the class at an 
early date. 

This class was unquestionably hit 
harder by the World War than any other, 
during the fall of its senior year only 20 
members being on the Hill ; hence this 
class claims the distinction of being the 
real World War Class of the University. 
It is understood that this idea is to be 
emphasized in the coming five-year 
reunion.

How to multiply your estate by 3 

Do YOU realize that you can multiply your estate about three times by 
means of a Life Insurance Trust with The Wachovia? 

Let us illustrate: — Suppose you put $10,000 in cash, securities or other pro- 
perty into an irrevocable Voluntary Trust with us. 

This Trust would yield about $600 a year,— enough to pay the premiums 
on $20,000 in life insurance for a man of 35. 

Then if anything should happen to you, your estate would be worth $30,000 
instead of $10,000— apart from your other property. 

And this $30,000 would be held in Trust for your heirs, giving them an 
income for life. 

More about this Trust is told in our booklet, "A Question 
the Future Will Not Answer" sent free upon request

Compare these huge 
turbines with the tiny 
lamp used by surgeons 
to examine the inside of 
an ear, and you will 
realize the variety of 
G-E products. Between 
these extremes are 
lamps, motors, genera- 
tors, switch-boards and 
other equipment — all 
tools by which elec- 
tricity works for you. 



The biggest machines built by the 
General Electric Company are steam 
turbine generators of 80,000 horse 
power, used in great power houses. 

One of these giants could generate 
enough current to run all the street 
cars in twelve cities as large as Wil- 
mington or Spokane. Ten could light 
a street as bright as Broadway run- 
ning around the world.
