The College of Liberal Arts 


With all the tendency toward specialization which has entered into 
the course of college study in the last few years, the College of Liberal 
Arts is still doing business at the same old stand. And business is 
decidedly on the upward trend. 

The College of Liberal Arts mvtst grow as specialization in educa- 
tion increases or the University idea must be given up. Without a 
College of Liberal Arts you may have a group of loosely related separ- 
ate schools, but specialized schools have so little in common that they 
would scarcely hold together as an educational unit tinless they had a 
centralizing force to hold them together. The common meeting ground 
of the whole University is the College of Liberal Arts. 

The College of Liberal Arts realizes the necessity for and the good 
of technical training, both for the individual and for the State. But 
the University idea must strive against the too great narrowing of 
such training. The University idea, as opposed to the isolated and 
unrelated school idea of organization, centers around the College of 
Liberal Arts. It contends against intellectual and professional pro- 
vincialism in every form, particularly against the self-satisfaction of 
narrowly confined proficiency. 

Such is the meaning of the term "general culture," which tradi- 
tionally the College of Liberal Arts claims as its province. The aim 
— acquiring a cultured or broad point of view — never changes. The 
means tlirough which the point of view may be acquired may vary. 
The problem of the College of Liberal Arts is to translate the aim in 
the terms of the widened study material of the modern world.

Clem G. Wright writes: 

"Every alumnus ought to have these fine pictures of the place we all love. 

"For the first time an artist has reflected the true spirit of the University 
and the village. Carolina men and women everywhere should show their appre- 
ciation of this achievement by buying a set of these beautiful pictures now. 

"Only through their cooperation can this splendid work be kept up.

The 129th Commencement 

The one hundred and twentv-ninth Commencement, 
featured by the record number of graduates sent out 
into the life of the State and Nation and by the 
determination of the alumni to participate more fully 
in the future development of the University, came to 
an end Wednesday, June 11, at noon, when a total of 
283 graduates received their diplomas and took their 
places in the ranks of the 11,000 living sons and daugh- 
ters who have gone forth from Alma Mater's doors.

Alumni Achievement 

The most distinctive feature of the occasion was the 
business meeting of the Alumni Association held in 
Memorial Hall, at which Secretary Grant and repre- 
sentatives of the Association wiped out a $5,000 deficit 
accumulated in setting up the Central Office, projected 
a plan sponsored by the Class of 1924 and the Alumni 
Loyalty Fund for the raising of a $1,000,000 endow- 
ment fund by the 150th anniversary of the University, 
and installed a new set of officers to carry forward the 
affairs of the Association for the coming year. 

Throughout the meeting ran the conviction that the 
alumni, constituting, with the trustees, the faculty, 
and the student body, a great fourth unit in the Uni- 
versity's complete organization, should henceforth 
work unitedly, informedly, and purposefully to the end 
that the Universitj' should at all times go forward and 
make increasingly larger contributions to the life of 
the students and the State for whose services it was 

Held apart from the reunion exercises, the meeting 
was devoted exclusively to the consideration of alumni 
business, with the result that the Association rests on 
a basis today which assures a greater, finer University 
for the future. 

The Out-of-Staters 

To Dr. R. r. Pell and the hundred-odd out-of- 
Staters who put on a special program on the evening 
of Alumni Day, the University is peculiarly indebted 
on two counts. Never has a larger group of her sons 
and daughters who have gone beyond the borders of 
the State returned to pay tribute to her, and rarely 
has so fine a service been done as that performed by 
Messrs. Pell. Home, Lane, Graham, and Terry, who 
reviewed her career under the guidance of Battle, 
Winston, Alderman. Venable, and Graham. The ad- 
dresses were so notable that they are being printed by 
the University and copies will be distributed by the 
Central Office to the alumni generallv. 

D D D 

The Alumni Catalogue 

For the first time since 1889 the University is on 
the eve of having a fairly complete, reliable catalogue 
of its former students. The Central Office announces 
that on July first it will send to press the material con- 
cerning 8,000 or 10,000 of the alumni, and that on 
October 12th it will deliver copies to all who place 
orders. ' 

Two thousand copies are to be printed and orders 
at $5 per copy are now being taken. ,\lumni will find 
the catalogue of unusual interest and should place their 
orders at once. 


To Speak or Not to Speak 

One of the questions debated at various alumni 
meetings held at the University during the year has 
been that of having speeches at the alumni luncheon. 
Ha])i5ily, the opponents seem to have won, and at this 
occasion the six hundred folk who sat down to dinner 
in Swain Hall had the best meal ever served them 
there, were enlivened by the band and the antics of the 



reunion classes, and went away grateful to those who 
had eliminated the oratory, having passed through the 
event with nothing more than the extension of brief, 
happy greetings from Columbia University, an an- 
nouncement concerning the Hume Cup, and the passage 
of resolutions in memory of the University's illustrious 

The long-wished-for has happened, and long mav the 
precedent prevail ! 

□ n D 

What Do You Think of Them? 

Two suggestions made by alumni at the business 
meeting are herewith passed on to our readers: (1) 
Should Freshmen and Sophomores be assigned to 
Freshman and Sophomore dormitories rather than 
being permitted to room indiscriminately with upper- 
classmen? and (2) Should Commencement be made a 
week-end event so that it will not run so far into the 
middle of the week? Both questions were propounded 
at the alumni meeting and appropriate committees were 
appointed to consider them. What do you think of 
them ? 

n n n 

The Hume Cup 

Alumni who were so fortunate as to come under the 
instruction of the late Dr. Thomas Hume, of the 
department of English, will be gratified to know that 
a prize in the form of a cup is being provided in his 
memory to be competed for by North Carolina high 
schools which publish high school newspapers. The 
competition will be under the direction of a faculty 
committee working through the Division of Extension 
and the cup will go annually, as the Aycock debate cup 
does, to the school which shows greatest excellence in 
high school journalism. 

The proposers of the plan are to be congratulated on 
the form which the memorial takes and the service it 
will perform in tying the high school editors closer to 
the University. 

D D n 

To Our New Officers 

To our new officers, Messrs. W. N. Everett, '86, 
president ; C. F. Harvey, '92, first vice-president ; C. W. 
Tillett, '09, second vice-president ; and E. E. Winslow, 
'09, J. W. Umstead, '09, R. H. Lewis, '98, Leslie Weil, 
'95, A. B. Andrews, '93, S. E. Shull, '00, T. B. Higdon, 
'08, Frank Coxe, '23 and L. H. Hodges, '19, directors. 
The Review extends greetings and congratulations. 

The hour has struck, in The Review's opinion, 
when the Alumni Association is to settle down to a 
fine, constructive program of service to the University. 
Accordingly, it takes this occasion to felicitate these 
gentlemen in coming into the position of alumni leader- 
ship at such a time as this, and to wish them unbounded 
success in all that they initiate and carry through in 
Alma Mater's behalf. 

The Class of 1924 

The Review has not been able to follow the record 
of the Class of 1924 through all of its career at the 
LTniversity and it cannot attempt to assess the value 
of its achievements on the campus. 

Nevertheless, The Review has been greatly im- 
pressed with two actions taken by it and wishes to 
commend them not only to the classes which will come 
after, but to those which have gone before. The set- 
ting aside of the final week of the term .as "Senior 
Week" during which alumni plans and relationships 
were considered, was eminently worth while ; and in 
sponsoring the endowment insurance program in order 
that $1,000,000 may be accumulated by the 150th anni- 
versary of the University, an example has been set 
which all alumni are urged to follow.

The Law School 

The action taken by the trustees of the Lhiiversity 
in electing to the deanship of the Law School Mr. 
Merton L. Ferson, Dean of the Law School of George 
W'ashington LTniversity and lecturer in the Lav/ School 
of the University of Michigan, settles and settles 
properly, one of the most important questions recently 
demanding attention by the University and insures the 
growth here of a school which will be developed in 
keeping with the best standards of American legal 

Dean Ferson comes to the University with a fine 
background of experience as a teacher and adminis- 
trator, he possesses an unusually attractive personality, 
and the University has every reason to look forward 
to the rapid growth of the Law School under his 

In its issue for December, The Review expressed 
the hope that in filling this position the trustees would 
take a course similar to that which has been taken, and 
it herewith congratulates them and the University.

Shall Students Drink? 

The final days of Commencement were filled with 
unusual excitement for students, faculty, and trustees 
over the question of student drinking. On Thursday 
night preceding Commencement, two students, having 
completed their work for graduation, decided to cele- 
brate with whiskey. One took two drinks and went to 
bed without becoming drunk or making a disturbance. 
The other's conduct was such as to attract notice, 
with the result that both cases came to the attention 
of the Student Council. Inasmuch as the Student 
Council had disbanded, its members who were still at 
the University brought the cases to the attention of the 
faculty executive committee, which, in turn, acting 
under an express rule of the trustees which allows the 
facultv no discretion in such cases, dismissed the stu- 
dents without allowing them to receive their diplomas. 
Following the action of the committee, the student who 
had taken only two drinks and had not become dis- 
orderly, appealed to the faculty, but the faculty by a 



fairly large majority sustained the committee. On 
Tuesday at the meeting of the trustees, the student 
appealed to the trustees, and the decision of the faculty 
was overruled, and the student given his degree. At 
the same time the trustees passed a resolution approv- 
ing the action of the faculty. 

. That the question has been widely discussed, goes 
without saying, and it is not The Review's intention 
to prolong the discussion. But there are three observa- 
tions which it is impelled to make here : ( 1 ) For years 
questions of discipline have rested, and properly, in 
the hands of the faculty and student representatives, 
and the precedent of hastily considered trustee action 
is charged with grave danger; (2) The difficulty of 
enforcing the regulation against drinking which has 
been an extremely baffling one, has been made mani- 
fold more difficult; and (3) Many fathers and mothers 
throughout North Carolina who wish to entrust their 
sons to Alma Mater will, as a result of this action, 
think twice before they send them here. 

The function of the University of North Carolina is 
primarily to assist men in laying well the foundations 
of character, and The Review doesn't believe that the 
step taken by the trustees in setting this precedent is 
one in that direction. 

n n n 

The Coeds 

A glance at the section of the Commencement pro- 
gram entitled "Medals, prizes, and fellowships," dis- 
closes the fact that the 80-odd young women in the 
University carried off by far more than their propor- 
tionate share of University honors. Miss Katherine E. 
Wilson won the Early English Text Society prize ; 
Miss Mary L. Henley the Hunter Lee Harris Medal ; 
Miss Lucy F. Lay the Mitchel W. Buchan scholarship 
in philosophy and the J. W. Bailey North Carolina Club 
prize; Miss Frances Gray the fellowship in playmak- 
ing; and Misses Catherine Gilbert and Anna F. Liddell 
the Graham Kenan fellowships in philosophy. The 
women were also strongly represented in the list of 
those who received the University's highest degree in 
course — the Ph.D. — this going to Misses Irene Dillard 
and Anna F. Liddell. 

n n □ 

Shall the Prophecy be Fulfilled 

During Commencement Dr. F. H. Giddings, speak- 
ing in the vernacular of New England, said he was 
willing to risk his "gumption" on a prophecy to the 
effect that the University of North Carolina has it 
within its power to become, within the next generation, 
the leading educational institution in the United States 
as concerns intellectual and creative qualities. 

The reasons on which he based the prophecy were : 
Climatically and topographically North Carolina com- 
prises a midway area in which the best of the North 
and South can meet and work unhindered by extremes 
of heat or cold. Its population, untrammcled by bind- 
ing traditions or too complex social conditions, is more 
typically American than thai of any of its sisters, being 

free alike from excessive numbers of negroes or for- 
eign elements which constitute a serious burden to the 
states of the lower South and North respectively. A 
faculty of distinction is already on the ground and 
seemingly is allowed to devote itself to the making of 
a great institution by a board of trustees liberal in 
|)olicy. indisposed to interfere in matters of internal 
administration, and eft'ective in providing legislative 
support. And finally, Chapel Hill is becoming, and may 
become still more, a beautiful and delightful place to 
which folk of intellectual ideals will resort to find 
opportunity for creative work and expression. 

That's the prophecy. The question for all of those 
who constitute the University is, Shall the prophecy be 

n D n 

Our Illustrious Dead 

Since our last issue the University has lost through 
death two of her most distinguished sons, Walter 
Clarke, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of North 
Carolina, and Locke Craig, Governor of the State 
from 1913 to 1917. 

The Review shall make no attempt here to estimate 
the services which these two men rendered the Uni- 
versity and the State which they loved and to which 
they devoted the full measure of their bodies, minds, 
and hearts. At no hour during the past three decades 
have they failed to give to the State service of the 
highest distinction, and while the University has sus- 
tained a profound loss in their passing, it is a loss shot 
through with pride in the achievement which was theirs. 

The death of Dr. C. Alphonso Smitli, head of the 
department of English at the U. S. Naval Academy, 
also brings to the University a profound sense of loss, 
not because Dr. Smith was an alumnus of the Univer- 
sity, but because as professor of English and first dean 
of the Graduate School here from 1903 to 1909 he 
completely caught the spirit of Carolina and became a 
part of her finer life and traditions. The formal estab- 
lishment of the Graduate School and the founding of 
Studies in Philology were achieved under his direction ; 
the University library was the ben?ficiary of his con- 
stant aid as a member of the book committee ; and 
since his connection with other institutions his interest 
in the University's welfare has continued unabated. 
Throughout the ranks of the faculty and alumni, as 
well as throughout the State at large, his death will be 
the occasion of genuine sorrow.

Index to the Review 

Notice is herewith given l(j readers of The Review 
that an inde.x to volumes 1 to 12 inclusive is now in 
the hands of the printers and will be supplied upon 
request to all subscribers who wish copies of it who 
have complete or partially comjilete files. It has been 
prepared by Miss Cornelia Spencer Love, of the Uni- 
versity library, and makes easily accessible all the 
material which has ajipeared in The Review during 
the past twelve years. 




As commencements come and go the 
one hundred and twenty-ninth seems 
destined to be recorded as one of the 
most noteworthy in University history. 

It was distinguished by several out- 
standing accomplishments : It sent out 
into the State and nation a record 
number of graduates — ^283; it wit- 
nessed the return for the first time 
of the out-of-state alumni as a group, 
and they came in large numbers ; it 
took definite steps toward putting the 
General Alumni Association on a per- 
manent basis, and finally, but not least 
important, it marked the inaugura- 
tion of a plan to present to Alma 
Mater a gift of $1,000,000 on her 
150th. birthday. Judging by the warm 
response to various proposals, it 
marked the beginning of a new and 
happy era in University-alumni rela- 

Most of the homecoming classes took 
advantage of the three-day reunion 
program, in vogue this year for the 
first time, and came back early. This 
made it possible to hold most of the 
class dinners Monday night, the eve of 
Alumni Day, and thus clear the deck 
for more general participation in Tues- 
day's activities. 

The entire commencement program 
moved smoothly. The separation of 

the business meeting of the General 
Alumni Association and the general 
reunion of classes on Alumni Day left 
no doubt as to the wisdom of the 
change, which will probably be made 
permanent. Another moot question 
was apparently definitely settled : the 
Alumni Luncheon was given over 
mostly to class stunts rather than 
speechmaking, and here again was a 
plan that met with general approval. 

Opening Exercises 

The graduating exercises were 
opened with the baccalaureate sermon 
on Sunday, June 8, which was preached 
by the Rev. Henry D. Phillips, rector 
of the Trinity Church of Columbia, S. 
C. Taking his text from the sixth 
chapter of the epistles to the Hebrews, 
first verse, "Wherefore let us cease to 
speak of the first principles of Christ 
and press on unto full growth," he said 
the great need of the world today is 
men capable of doing honest, vigorous 
thinking upon a higher plane. He made 
a powerful plea for a well-rounded de- 
\elopment of the individual. He was 
introduced by President Chase. 

The annual Y. M. C. A. sermon 
under the Davie Poplar was delivered 
Sunday night by Dr. W. D. Moss, 

pastor of the Presbyterian Church, 
who urged the graduates to live 

Class Day Exercises 

Class day exercises were held Mon- 
day. Robed in cap and gown, the 
seniors gathered in front of Memorial 
Hall Monday morning and marched to 
Gerrard Hall where farewell prayer 
services were conducted by Professor 
Horace Williams. 

Next came the Mangum medal con- 
test in oratory in which three seniors 
competed. They were George Hamp- 
ton, of Chapel Hill; M. A. James, of 
Asheville, and C. A. Peeler, of Salis- 
bury. George Hampton was an- 
nounced as the winner at the closing 
exercises Wednesday morning. The 
orations of Mr. Hampton and Mr. 
James were strong pleas for America's 
entrance into an international court of 
justice, while Mr. Peeler urged more 
education for the negro. 

Rain put a crimp in the faculty 
alumni baseball game on Emerson field 
and forced the graduating class to 
smoke the peace pipe in Memorial Hall 
instead of under the Davie Poplar as 
is customary. 

President and Mrs. Chase received 
the seniors in the afternoon following 

ShowiiiK the academic processinn enterinK Memorial Hall for the final exercises of the University's 129th Commencement. 
The procession formed in front of the Alumni Building and, headed by the University band, marched acro3» the campus. 



which the class exercises were held 
and the spot light was thrown on the 
merits and foibles of its 150 members. 
The class history was read by Miss 
Bessie Davenport, of Pineville. The 
class prophecy was foretold by Miss 
Kittle Lee Frazier, of Raleigh. The 
last will and testament was by J. Osier 
Bailey, of Raleigh, and Earle Hartsell, 
of Stanfield, read the class poem. Pre- 
siding was W. W. Gwynn, of Leaks- 
ville, president. In a short talk Jack 
Allsbrook, of Roanoke Rapids, turned 
the student government over to his 
successor, William Cocke, of Ashe- 
ville. Abram Weil, of Goldsboro, pre- 
sented the class gift, an endowment 
insurance policy for the university. 

The first gathering of out-of-state 
alumni was held at a dinner Monday 
night, when short talks were made by 
representatives from each group. All 
expressed amazement at the rapid 
growth of the University as well as 
the village. 

The Dialectic Literary Society was 
the winner of the annual inter-society 
debate, also held Mondav night. 

Alumni Day Program 

The general assembly of the Alumni 
Association and the general reunion of 
the different classes were held Tuesday 
morning of Alumni Day. The Alumni 
Luncheon in Swain Hall was unusually 
well-attended. There were many class 
demonstrations and little speech-mak- 
ing — a program that seemed to be 
thoroughly enjoyed. Dr. F. H. Gid- 
dings, head of the department of Social 
Science of Columbia University 
brought the crowd to its feet when in 
the course of a short talk he said: 

"It is not news to you, but it gives 
me pleasure to say that the University 
of North Carolina is everywhere rec- 
ognized as one of the half dozen edu- 
cational institutions in the country that 
lead and do not wait to follow." 

George Stephens of Asheville an- 
nounced a trophy cup to be given in 
memory of the late Professor Thomas 
Hume for the best high school paper 
published during the year. The cup 
will cost approximately $500 and will 
be given by the former students of Dr. 
Hume, who was for many years a 
member of the faculty of the Univer- 
sitv. The contest is to be conducted 

under the auspices of the University 
Extension Division. The only condi- 
tion is that high school papers compet- 
ing must publish a sketch of the life 
and services of Dr. Hume. Subscrip- 
tions of $10.00 will be solicited to pro- 
vide a fund for the prize. 

Much fun was provided on Emerson 
Field in the afternoon when tlie 
"Reds," composed of reunion classes 
ending in final numeral "9," and the 
"Whites," composed of those ending in 
"4," clashed in a pushball contest. De- 
cision as to winners was not rendered. 

Out-of-State Speakers 

The features of the evening pro- 
gram were the final meeting of the out- 
of-state group and a performance by 
the Carolina Playmakers. In twelve 
minute talks five prominent out-of- 
state alumni undertook to cover the 
University's administration and its sig- 
nificance under each of its former 
presidents since the reopening follow- 
ing the Civil War. Each talk was by 
an alumnus who was an undergraduate 
during the period he discussed. Owing 
to a recent illness President Chase was

marched to Memorial Hall, in which 
the graduating exercises were held. 
President Chase presided. In the ab- 
sence of Governor Morrison, who was 
in Asheville attending the funeral of 
former Governor Craig, the 283 di- 
plomas were presented by Dr. R. H. 
Lewis, of Raleigh. 

Sixty-five students won liigher de- 
grees — a record number for the Gradu- 
ate School. Six were awarded the 
Ph.D. degree, including two women 
students, this being the first time in the 
history of the University that this de- 
gree in course was awarded to women. 
They were Miss Anna Forbes Liddell 
of Charlotte and Miss Irene Dillard, 
of Clinton, S. C. 

Honorary degrees were conferred on 
one woman and five men of promi- 
nence as follows : Doctor of laws, 
Franklin Henry Giddings, professor of 
sociology and the history of civiliza- 
tion in Columbia University; John 
Matthews Manly, professor and head 
of the department of English in the 
University of Chicago; Thomas Gil- 
bert Pearson, of New York City, lec- 
turer, writer and administrator in the 
practical fields of ornithology ; William 

Jackson Adams, associate justice of 
the North Carolina Supreme court ; 
degree of honorary civil engineer. 


Charles S. Hamlin, of the Federel 
Reserve Board, who delivered Com- 
mencement address. 

Charles Upham, chief engineer of the 
North Carolina Highway Commission; 
doctor of letters, Olive Tilford Dar- 
gan, author and poet. 

The commencement address was de- 
livered by Charles S. Hamlin, member 
of the Federal Reserve Board and 
formerly Assistant Secretary of the 
Treasury. Mr. Hamlin's address was 
devoted largely to a plea for less self- 
ishness among peoples, states and na- 
tions. "A great problem facing the 
world today," he said, "is the relation 
of individuals to society, — the indi- 
vidual man as opposed to the general 
welfare of the community. College 
graduates can do much to make this 
relation clear, and to mold public opin- 
ion on great public questions. Public 
opinion is too often molded by selfish 
interests, and to point out the true in- 
terest of the community is a problem 
in solving which college men should 
take the lead. Every college man 
should keep abreast of public affairs, 
and should devote at least some part 
of his time to the service of his 

I\Ir. Hamlin took a hard fling at 
I.n-ael Zangwill, noted English play- 
wright and novelist, who on a recent 
visit to this country said America in 
entering the war was actuated by 
selfish motives and that Woodrow Wil- 
son failed to comprehend the character 
of the American people. Mr. Hamlin 
did not call the Englishman by name, 
but left no doubt as to his identity. 


The old bell in the South Building 
cracked last month and was silent for 
the first time in 68 years. 

The University is planning to mend 
the old relic, to restore it its metallic 
health. It will be sent back to the 
foundry where it was made, there to 
be welded or recast. It will be saved 
to University tradition, to continue as 
the center of college legend and his- 
tory. Meanwhile the bell in the Pres- 
byterian church has been pressed into 
service as the campus' official an- 

The disablement of the South Build- 
ing bell has brought about the dis- 
covery of its predecessor, the bell that 
used to hang in the belfry which was 
burned in 1856. Professor Collier 
Cobb last month went on a trip of ex- 
ploration and unearthed the first bell 
in the Durham Foundry and Machine 
Works. John Kerr, proprietor of the 
foundry, said he would return it to the 
University as a gift. This bell was 
bought and installed soon after the 
University opened in 1795. 

This recalls the story in connection 
with the return of the tablet what was 
stolen from the cornerstone of the Old 
East building and found many years 
later in a foundry in Tennessee. 



The 1924 volume of the Yackcty- 
Yack, the University annual, which 
recently came from the press, is dedi- 
cated to Alfred Moore Scales, '92, 
prominent attorney of Greensboro. . 

Robert S. Pickens, of Hickory, now 
editor and proprietor of the Hickory 
Daily Record, is editor-in-chief. He 
married and left college at Easter and 
the work of completing the book de- 
volved on Spencer Murphy of Salis- 
bury, who has been elected editor of 
next year's annual. 

Abram Weil of Goldsboro and 
Charles Yarley, of Atlanta, Ga., were 
business managers. 

Mrs. Robert S. Pickens, of Hickory 
(nee Miss Vinon Liddell of Charlotte, 
was sponsor of the volume. 

The Separk Poetry Cup, given an- 
nually by the Fine Arts Department of 
the North Carolina Federation of 
Women's Clubs, has been won by Mrs. 
Paul Green '19, of Chapel Hill, for- 
merly Miss Elizabeth Lay of Raleigh. 
Mrs. Green's poem was "Twilight."

istry simultaneously with the entry of 
the class in 1880 and has remained in 
the University's service continuously 
since. Interesting reminiscences were 
swapped and high tribute was paid to

Hats Off to 1909 

Class officers or committees who 
want to know how to get a good sized 
delegation back for reunions are re- 

ferred to 1909, wliich returned 45 of 
its 88 living members and tlierefore 
gets the prize for attendance of classes 
g 'aduated more than five years ago 
although '99 begs leave to recall tha* 
it had back 27 of its 43 living gradu- 
ates and five of its non-graduates. 

The plan that 1909 used to get its 
men back was simple enough : John 
Umstead, of the reunion committee, 
began bombarding the members with 
letters early in the spring and, firing 
a reminder at them every few days, 
he never let up until a record number 
was lined up at Commencement. Other 
members of the reunion committee 
were O. J. Coffin, J. H. Manning, K. 
D. Battle and C. W. Tillett, Jr. In- 
cidentally, this class also reported that 
77 of its 88 living members had al- 
ready filled in and returned their ques- 
tionnaires to the Central Alumni Office. 

New officers were elected as fol- 
lows: John Hall Manning, Raleigh, 
president: John W. Umstead, Durham, 
secretary-treasurer. The following 
committee was appointed to begin 
preparations for the 20-year reunion : 
John Hall Manning, John W. Um- 
stead, C. W. Tillett, Charlotte : Donald 
Clement, Salisbury; K. D. Battle, 
Rocky Mount. 

The class will hold an informal re- 
union next year, and while no special

1914 Has Big Delegation 

More than thirty members of 1914 
were back for their ten-year reunion, 
composing one of the largest reunion 
delegations. The number attending 
was much larger than at the five-year 
reunion, since many of the '14 men 
had not returned from military service 
or were in a state of readjusting them- 
selves after the war. 

The class banquet was held at the 
"Cabin," with 26 members present. 
John S. Cansler, of Charlotte, pre- 
sided in the absence of J. Albert 
Holmes, who found at the last minute 
he would not be able tn attend. 

Oscar Leach, Raleigh, permanent 
secretary, brought up several business 
matters, among them a recommenda- 
tion from the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation that a change in officers each 
five years would be advisable, and he 
presented his resignation, which was 
tabled until the ne.xt reunion of the 

Each member of the class gave a 
brief review of his life since leaving 
the University and reports were given 
of the activities of many members who 
were absent and whose whereabouts 
and activities were known. 

Members of the class were quartered 
in the Manly Building and staged 
celebrations and jollifications day and 
night. A photograph was taken at the 
Old South Building Tuesday at 1 

Judge J. Llo\-d Horton, Farmville, 
of the North Carolina Superior Court, 
represented the class in the talk- f est 
held in Gerrard Hall Tuesday, pre- 
senting the members after a brief re- 
view of the activities. 

Members of the class present at the 
banquet Monday night included Miss 
Julia M. Alexander, Law, Charlotte ; 
Lucius H. Ranson, Charleston, S. C. ;

graduation, including Seymour Whit- 
ing, Isaac R. Strayhorn, E. J. Perry 
and C. N. Gibbs. 

Innovation of '18 Successful 

The first informal reunion of 1918 
was a success. When the class held its 
five-year pow-wow in 1923 it declared 
in favor of an informal reunion each 
year. This was an innovation and the 
outcome was watched with interest by 
other classes. In keeping with the 
idea that no member should be made 
to feel that he was under a sort of 
compulsion to come back every year 
no letters were written urging at- 

Quite a number came back, however, 
among them John Terry, president, 
Anna Forbes Liddell, Minor Gwynn, 
Claude Currie, Victor Bryant, C. Hold- 
ing, Harding Butt, Albert Coates. Rob- 
ert Madry, Dougald McMillan, George 
Lay, Curtis Crissman, Martha Dough- 
ton, Roland McClamroch, and H. H. 

Through the courtesy of Anna 
Forbes Liddell the class dinner was 
held in her home, "The Collar Box," 
on West Frankliri street. Bobbie 
Wunsch, now of the Junior High 
School, Greensboro, sent word he de- 
sired to relinquish his portfolio as sec- 
retary, and Harding Butt was elected 
in his place. 

The class w'as proud of the fact that 
it could list among its number Miss 
Liddell, the first woman candidate to 
rass an examination for the Ph.D. de- 
gree which the University bestowed 
upon her at Commencement. 

So successful did the campus view 
T8's informal reunion that the class 
of '09 decided to hold one next year. 

1919 Very Active 

The class of of 1919 held its re- 
union dinner at the Coop. Twenty- 
three were present, including the wives 
of four members ; in other words there 
were 19 members of '19. Arrivals 
Alunnii Day swelled the '19 list and 
there were enough to fill three tables 
at the Alumni Luncheon. On Com- 
mencement Day the class made a pil- 
grimage to the cemetery and placed 
flowers on the graves of the late 
President Graham and Dean Stacy. 
This the class intends doing every 

The 1919 directories came from the 
printers while the reunion was in pro- 
gress and copies were distributed to 
members present. Secretary Hilton 

West has sent letters along with direc- 
t) ies to other members of the class 
requesting that "unlucky two-spot with 
the corner torn off — one dollar to pay 
for the directory, the other to pay 
class debts, past and future." Secre- 
tary West says he must raise $200 by 
this or some other method. 

Norman Boren, now a lawyer of 
Greensboro, acted as spokesman for 
the class at the reunion of all classes 
in Gerrard Hall. 

Discussing the reunion Secretary 
West, who devoted himself without 
stint toward making it a success, says : 
"I fee! that those who came back en- 
joyed it and that they are and always 
will be a working nucleous. At any 
rate as secretary I'm not down in the 

Class officers were elected for the 
next five years as follows : Jack Pow-

Secretary Grant Reports Work On Sound Basis 
Sixty-five Active Groups 

After two years spent in laying the 
foundation of the reorganized associa- 
tion, alumni work is now on a sound 
basis. Such was the gist of the annual 
report of Secretary Grant made to the 
alunmi at their general assembly at 

The report struck a note of optimism 
never before reached by the Central 
Office. Secretary Grant e.xplained that 
"the laying of the groundwork for an 
effective association was of necessity a 
slow process and that now, with a 
sound foundation on which to build, 
University alumni are privileged for 
the first time to initiate and e.xecute as 
a group." He added that alunmi activ- 
ity and enthusiasm had within the past 
tliree months assumed greater propor- 
tions than during all the preceding 18 
months combined. 

65 Active Associations 

The report disclosed the number of 
active associations in North Carolina 
had grown to 50, which, together with 
15 outside the state, made a total of 05 
with duly elected officers. It was esti- 
mated that there were 15 other groups 
in the state and several outside suf- 
ficiently large and compact to have 
active associations. 

This year for the first time the busi- 
ness meeting of the association and the 
reunion program of classes were en- 
tirely separated and the prediction that 
under such arrangement both would be 
more effective was amply borne out. 
The general assembly ( formerly called 
the business meeting) was held in Me- 
morial Hall and opened at 9 :30 o'clock 
on Alumni Day. The atmosphere of 
the meeting was distinctly serious and 
business-like and it was generally 
agreed that more business was trans- 
acted than at any previous gathering in 
alumni history. The general reunion 
of classes followed in Gerrard Hall. 

Notable Accomplishments 

The general assembly accomplished 
several things that will make the Com- 
mencement of 1924 one of the most 
notable in the University's history. It 
wiped out a $5,000 deficit accumulated 
in setting up the Central Office, pro- 
jected a plan sponsored by the class 
of 1924 (to be put into operation 



W. N. Everett, '85, of Raleigh, 
Secretary of State, has been elected 
president of the General Alumni 
Association to succeed Walter 
Murphy, '92, of Salisbury. 

The election of Mr. Everett and 
other officers was announced at the 
General Assembly of the Associa- 
tion at Commencement, following a 
count of 1,000 alumni votes cast 
by mail. 

C. F. Harvey, '92, of Kinston, 
was elected first vice-president; C. 
W. TiUett, Jr., '09, of Charlotte, 
second vice-president 

New membsrs of the Board of 
Directors elected were John W. 
Umstead, '09, of Durham; R. H. 
Lewis, Jr., '98, of Oxford; and F. 
E. Winslow, '09, of Rocky Mount. 

President Everett, acting under 
authority conferred by the consti- 
tution, has since appointed six 
other members to the Board of Di- 
rectors. They are A. B. Andrews, 
93, Raleigh; T. B. Higdon, '05, 
Atlanta, Ga.; Frank Coxe, '23, 
Asheville; Leslie Weil, '95, Golds- 
boro; Luther H. Hodges, '19, 
Spray; Samuel E. ShuU, '00, 
Stroudsburg, Pa. The first three

ment fund by the 150th. anniversary

of officers to carry on the affairs of 
the association and planned for its con- 
tinuance on a permanent basis. 

There was a report by the special 
committee appointed to review the 
work of the Central Alumni Office, an 
address by President Chase, and 
?iunierous discussions and resolutions.

Walter Murphy Presided 
Walter Murphy, of Salisbury, the 
retiring president, presided over half 

the meeting and then turned it over to 
Felix Harvey, of Kinston, the newly- 
elected first vice-president, who served 
in the absence of the new president, 
\V. N. Everett, of Raleigh. 

President Murphy opened the meet- 
ing and asked Secretary Grant to make 
liis annual report. Mr. Grant in turn 
requested Dr. L. R. Wilson, '99, to 
make the report for the special com- 
mittee appointed by the board of di- 
rectors to review the work of the 
Central Office, the other members of 
that committee being A. B. Andrews, 
'93, and C. W. Tillett, '09. Dr. Wilson 
said in part : 

Two Important Findings 

This committee has gone through the 
Central .-Mumni Office in a very careful 
sort of way. The most important finding 
which it makes is this: That after these 
years a Central Alumni Office, manned hy 
alumni, supported by alumni, has reached 
a definite conclusion, that the 11,000 sons 
and daughters of this institution ought to 
be brought together in one unit, a part of 
the University, and ought steadily to in- 
terest itself in behalf of the University, 
not merely to relieve it in the case of 
emergency, not merely to do certain spe- 
cial things, but to think in the terms of 
the University and its enrichment today, 
tomorrow and steadily from this time on. 

The second finding is as to the work 
which the Central OfSce has done in bring- 
ing your name and my name and the names 
of the other 11,000 alumni into some order, 
some unity, so that we know where we are 
and who we are and what we are doing. 
As a person who has been on the campus 
for these past twenty-three years, who has 
attempted to transact business with alumni 
m various ways, the most distressing thing 
has been that when you sent out 200 let- 
ters you have had about 140 of them to 
come back to you. It is the most baffling 
sort of thing when a mother in trying to 
reach her children, in trying to send her 
greetings to her own, is unable to send the 
word of greeting, is unable to call that son 
back simply because there wasn't any ma- 
chinery set up by which this intimate rela- 
tionship could be maintained. The Central 
Office, with infinite pains, has succeeded in 
breaking down, reaching over that chasm, 
which has existed between this ins'.itution 
and those of us who have been away. That 
is, 9,000 of the 11,000 addresses have beer 
reduced not only to paper but to mel.- 
and can be stuck in an electric addrcssi 
graph, electric current turned on, and ii 
the course of this day, if necessary, 9.000 
of us could have letters started at least to 
us to tell us of the love of this institution, 
of its interest in us, and to call us togethp 
here to minister in its service. 

The committee is fully convinced that i 
very significant piece of work has been 
done and has been gotten under way and 



that it is imminently worthy of the full 
support of this organization. The work 
should be strengthened in every conceiva- 
ble way so that we can be informed about 
this institution, so that we can purpose in 
our hearts to make it the great institution 
it should be, so that we can help make it 
minister in a hundred ways that it never 
has before, to the men and women that 
come here, to the state ami to the nation. 

Secretary Grant's Report 

Secretary Grant then made his re- 
port, which enihodied the following 
salient points, other than those already 

The active alumni mailing list now 
comprises more tiian 9,000 names, built 
up from 3,000 accurate addresses avail- 
able two years ago. Approximately 
500 addresses are at the moment in- 
correct and there are about 500 others 
that have never been ascertained. 

Alnmni Catalog October 

Copy for the alumni catalogue is 
now in the hands of the printers and 
the books will be ready for distribu- 
tion by October 12 — University Day. 
It will contain from 800 to 1000 pages, 
printed on good hook paper, and will 
be casebound in blue with a blind seal 
of the University on the front and title 
stamped in gold across the back. The 
price will be not more than $5.00, fig- 
ured on the basis of the sale of 2,000 

The catalogue will contain the com- 
plete alphabetical roster of University 
alumni from the beginning through the 
class of 1924, with individual records; 
class rosters ; district, or territorial 
rosters; and rosters of University of- 
ficers, faculty members and trustees. 

The Alumni Review, which was 
taken over by the Central Office a year 
ago, has been increased from nine to 
ten issues a year, with 32 pages an 
issue. Considerable changes have been 
made in the editorial and advertising 
policies with results that have been 
gratifying. The circulation for each 
issue has been 4,000. Of these 3,225 
went to alumni and the balance to 
faculty, trustees and others. In re- 
sponse to two statements 50 per cent, 
of the subscribers have paid for the 
current year. The Review has been 
more systematically handled and more 
enthusiastically received than ever be- 
fore. The plans are to increase its 
f|uality and circulation and frequency 
of appearance. 

On June 1st the assets of the Gen- 
eral Alumni Association, including 
receipts from all sources, were $10,- 
553.71. The liabilities were $12,937.73, 
leaving a gross deficit of $2,384.02. 


Contributions made by alumni 
groups and individuals at com- 
mencement to wipe out the present 
deficit of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation and carry on the work until 
September 1 amounted to $5,450. 

The contributions were made by: 
the class of 1909, $1,000, through 
John W. Umstead; New York 
Alumni Association, $500, through 
John S. Terry and A. W. Hay- 
wood; Walter Murphy, $100; Flor- 
ida association, $200, through Ben- 
jamin B. Lane; A. B. Andrews, 
$100; Dr. R. H. Lewis, $100; John 
W. Fries, for the class of 1868, 
$100; George Stephens, $100; 
Maryland association, $200, 
through Dr. E. H. Kloman, presi- 
dent; Justice Heriot Clarkson, 
$100; Leslie Weil, $100; Felix 
Harvey, $100; A. W. Haywood, 
$100; N. A. Townsend, $100; Fran- 
cis D. Winston, $100; S. S. Heide, 
$100 for the Alabama association; 
Charles Van Noppen, for the class 
of 1894, $100; Raleigh association, 
$500, through Albert Cox; Meck- 
lenburg association, $500, through 
W. T. Shore; Buncombe associa- 
tion, $500, through Frank Coxe; 
Greensboro association, $200, 
through E. E. Rives; W. F. Tay- 
lor, for the Wayne County asso- 
ciation, $100; W. P. Jacocks, 
$100; Class of 1899, through Fred 
Coxs, $250; Robert W. Winston, 

.'\gainst this deficit there was cash on 
hand of $505.86 and outstanding in 
travel advances $221.05, leaving a net 
deficit of $1,657.11. 

The Alumni Attitude 

Secretary Grant concluded : 

The most signilicant thing in regard to 
this year's reunions is the home-coming for 
the first time of the out-of-state alumni as a 
group. It is astounding that nearly thirty- 
live per cent, of the living alumni belong to 
this group, most of them native North Caro- 
linians, whose anchorage is more than an 
attachment to the University. The unfor- 
tunate thing I discovered in going among 
this group was their feeling that the Uni- 
versity felt they were somewhat unneces- 
sary, that they were not a part of the 
family; in other words were not consider- 
ing them vital to the University. 

The explanation is obvious. During the 
last 25 years the University has been en- 
gaged in one of the most persistent fights in 
its history to get the state of North Caro- 
lina, which founded it, to accept its proper 
linancial obligations. This fight was a beau- 

tiful step in our development. We would 
not wipe it out if we could. But the point 
is; it was a step, and it was limited to the 
state. Now we have passed on, and these 
out-of-state alumni become doubly import- 
ant, for the University influence knows no 
territorial confines though it be the mate- 
rial property of a single state. 

Influence Not Confined 

We have talked of a "campus contempo- 
rary with the state's borders." Despite the 
least desire on our part, the reflex of our 
statement of the case has been in many 
instances to isolate those who lived beyond 
our territorial confines. We must break 
down this feeling of isolation for now that 
the state has accepted its proper obliga- 
tion the hearty support of the out-of-state 
alumni becomes a vital necessity in our 
plan to make this the greatest University in 
the South and one of the out-standing in 
the country. The interest these men have 
taken in the out-ot-state reunion demon- 
strates they are worthy of the finest test of 
love and loyalty. 

University and Alumni Cooperation 

In building up the Alumni Association 
the cooperation of the University has 
been most generous. Likewise the co- 
operation of many alumni has been gen- 
erous. Several members of your Board 
of Directors have given their assistance 
without stint. But to speak of wide co- 
oi»eration from the alumni group would be 
to smother the facts and to feign hypocrisy, 
which is not permissable in a group of men 
of our calibre. I do not criticize; I merely 
present the facts. 

So long as this work rests on the basis 
of an assumed loyalty, which may or may 
not be felt, a proper co-operation will not 
be obtained. I think there are two main 
difficulties. The first is the assumption by 
many that the alumni group cannot be 
trusted, that their interest is only a passing 
interest — such as interest in athletics, re- 
unions, a good time, graduations. We have 
said the alumni group were capable only 
of paying tribute in time and money 
and incapable of broad decision and de- 
termination of purpose. On the other hand 
the alumni have made an equally serious 
error in assuming that the whole purpose 
of the association was for their gratifica- 
tion, for the building of a bigger Univer- 
sity because it would reflect credit on them. 

Alumni Interest Superior 

The University of North Carolina has no 
existence outside of what it is contributing 
to its alumni and to the people of the 
state. We cannot propagate a selfish insti- 
tution. We cannot have an Alumni Asso- 
ciation which is not interested in the Uni- 
versity's every-day development. Let the 
alumni make her problems their problems 
for I believe the interest' of the average 
alumnus of this University is finer than the 
interest of your student, even of your fac- 
ulty member, is finer than the interest of 
your legislature, which is responsible for 
our perpetuation. There is no more liberal 
interest, and when we approach our alumni 
on that basis the University Alumni Asso- 
ciation will be olf the rocks and it will not 
be necessary to come here every year and 
talk about the deficiency incurred on ac- 
count of our Association. 

That is not the popular way of looking at 
alumni work. When you look for institu- 
tions with this point of view you will find 
probably only two, and these two are the 



greatest institutions in America because the 
alumni have accepted the institutions as 
their own. They know every problem. 
every line along which it has extended. 
They know and they can say better than 
any one else how it should grow. It is on 
that level that the class of 1924 has 
launched the project to raise $1,000,000.00 
for the University, not for the sake of a 
$1,000,000.00 but as a means of relating 
more closely the alumni to the Univer- 
sity. . . . 

Privilege to Give 

We do not want any man to give one 
moment of his time, one penny of his 
money, one second of his thought'to alumni 
work unless he believes it is a privilege to 
do so, that it is true to his own best inter- 
est and that of his posterity. 

The work that can be done by a handful 
of men is over. I am glad to say that the 
mechanical end, the formal end, has been 
so achieved that you have gotten full re- 
turns for money expended. As I see it it 
will take four years to work out the Asso- 
ciation as we have outlined the program. 
I urge therefore that you get a secretary 
in whom you have confidence — a man 
whom you believe is capable of doing the 
job along the lines indicated and give that 
man assurances that he is going to have 
four years unhampered by financial worries. 
To do less is to invite the thing we have 
done for twenty-five years. I should like 
to urge that you think of the Central 
Office not merely in terms of a clerical 
office which should spend all its time in 
the handling of routine clerical details, but 
in terms of an office capable of interpret- 
ing the very best there is in alumni senti- 
ment. If you will do that you will do 
something that will be a distinctive contri- 
bution amply safeguarding the future of 
the institution. To do less is to leave the 
University in the hole as it has been for 
a century and a quarter. 

President Chase Speaks 

At this juncture President Chase 
entered the hall and was asked to ad- 
dress the meeting^. He said in part : 

It seems clear to me that here this year 
is the beginning of what I might try to 
interpret as a new relationship between the 
University on the one hand and its alumni 
on the other. I do not know of a more 
loyal, faithful, interested body of alumni 
anywhere than the alumni of the University 
of North Carolina throughout the history of 
this institution. One has only to think of 
the times that the alumni again and again 
have come to the assistance of the Alumni 
Association, of the men who have given 
their time and efforts and money. In the 
times which have passed it has been neces- 
sarily the case, I think, that the relation- 
ship of the University alumni to the 
University has partaken largely of the char- 
acter of a rescue squad to help the Univer- 
sity when it gets into trouble financially or 
with the Legislature. As the University 
grows and develops and comes more and 
more to be a recognized agency of the 
State for carrying on a very important 
phase of the work of the State of North 
Carolina it seems to me that it is becom- 
ing increasingly clear that a re-interpreta- 
tion is taking place as to just the relation- 
ship between the University and the 
alumni. I hope that it is going to partake 
less of the nature of what I call a rescue 
squad because I hope in the years to come 
the University, the problems of the Uni- 



The General Alumni Association 
and home-coming classes at com- 
mencement unanimously adopted 
the Di.x Schedule for holding re- 

This means that the classes will 
come back with about the same 
frequency, the main difference be- 
ing that each will reune with three 
other contemporary classes instead 
of under the multiple five-year sys- 
tem as at present. Thus over a 
period of 19 years, each class will 
return with six of its contemporary 

versity, are going to be less and less those 
of an emergency character, and are going 
to be more and more those of working out 
a larger and larger destiny in the State, of 
advancing the welfare of the State in an 
intelligent and far-seeing way. 

And so it seems to me that if any one 
thing does stand out it is that the relation- 
ship of the alumni and the University 
ought to be more and more a continuous 
relation, a relationship which partakes of 
the character of a study on the part of 
the alumni of the University's problems as 
they arise, a relationship which manifests 
itself in an understanding that deepens as 
the years go by as to what it is that the 
University is about and is trying to do, 
and which expresses itself in scores of 
ways with helpful suggestions and with 
intelligent criticism and with a keeping in 
touch with the University, which is on a 
twelve-month basis, year by year. It is 
that sort of attitude which, it seems to me, 
is now beginning to grow up between the 
University and the reorganized Alumni As- 
sociation, and which will deepen, I am sure, 
as the years go by. And so as the type 
of service which the Association renders 
the University is changing in this way, 
with a broadening and deepening in this 
way, it seems to me that this meeting marks 
an important step in that transition and in 
that development. 

Praises Grant's Work 

I have seen a good bit during the last two 
years of the work of the Alumni Associa- 
tion, particularly through its Secretary 
here. I have felt and felt increasingly that 
Mr. Grant was attacking the problems of 
the alumni and of the Alumni Association 
in a most intelligent way, as I have been 
able to keep and have been privileged to 
keep in touch with the work which he has 
been doing. I want to say this about him 
to you this morning because I know him 
and I have got confidence in him and it is 
confidence based on what I have seen go 
on here week by week at the University, 
and I want to pass it on as my personal 
opinion about that matter. 

Walter Murphy Speaks 

Here the report of .Secretary Grant 
was adopted unanimously, following 
which President Murphy said: 

In adopting this report you committed 
yourself to the things set forth, and I think 

you ought to consider. There was a very 
specific recommendation as to the immediate 
necessity of financing the Alumni Associa- 
tion. I will say very frankly that if some 
means are not devised by which that can be 
done the Alumni Association will cease to 
function in twenty days. 

There is among the alumni a group to 
whom the University for the past twenty 
years has turned when it was in distress. 
This group forms a considerable portion of 
the alumni, but we have never appealed to 
them without having our appeal met. This 
has been going on year in and year out. 
This small body of men has always re- 
sponded. The responsibility has devolved 
upon them in keeping this a growing thing. 
I assume they would meet this need now 
as in the past, but I think that group 
ought to level the hill and spread it upon 
the shore. You know that many of us have 
returned fearful that someone is going to 
get up and ask for money. This has been 
a frequent recurrence year in and year 

Now we want you to bear in mind this 
is your Association. We are merely your 
officials, to whom you have entrusted cer- 
tain duties which we have attempted to per- 
form honestly and conscientiously. You 
will pardon me if 1 say that no man in 
connection with alumni associations in this 
country has given more care, more honest, 
more genuine work than Daniel L. Grant 
has in his efforts trying to form a real 
working basis for the Alumni Association. 
A visit to his office will demonstrate what 
he has done. 

Wipe Out $5,000 Deficit 

Following Mr. Murphy's cliallenge 
the meeting was thrown open to a dis- 
cussion of ways and means of raising 
funds to wipe out the deficit. Secre- 
tary Grant e.xplained that to cover the 
deficit and continue the association on 
its present basis until Septeinber 1 
would require $5,000. The budget for 
the following 12 months, he said, 
would contemplate the expenditure of 

"For the next two or three years, or 
until we can get this matter before the 
entire alumni group, the question of 
financing the Association must be con- 
sidered as an emergency measure," 
Secretary Grant said. "I know that 
if this office is continued upon the basis 
upon which it has been founded it will 
finance itself, but in the meantime if 
we continue to solicit funds through 
tlie mail and advertising our need and 
getting no response we are harming 

John W. Umstead started the con- 
tributions toward w iping out the deficit 
wilii the announcement that the class 
of '09 would give $1,000 if the balance 
were rai.sed. From then on, through- 
out the remainder of the meeting, con- 
triinitions were made by a representa- 
tive number of groups and individuals. 
The names and amounts are to be 
found in another column. 



Stephens Offers Plan 

On motion of Maxcy L. John de- 
cision was reached that a conference 
of presidents and secretaries of all 
local alumni associations be held in 
Chapel Hill during the latter part of 
September, or if this date be not 
deemed propitious, on the call of the 
President. Another motion by Mr. 
John that the proper authorities be in- 
structed to provide fireproof quarters 
for alumni records was also adopted. 
On motion of R. D. W. Connor resolu- 
tions of sympathy were sent to Mrs. 
Locke Craig because of the death of 
her husband. 

George Stephens of Asheville intro- 
duced a resolution asking that in the 
interest of alumni unity an investiga- 
tion be made to determine the advis- 
ability of having freshmen and sopho- 
mores room together in the same dor- 
mitories, thus building up a class spirit. 
Mr. Stephens said the plan had worked 
with success in larger institutions of 
the North, particularly Yale, Harvard 
and Princeton. Mr. Stephens' resolu- 
tion was adopted and a committee 

Alfred W. Haywood explained the 
$1,000,000.00 endowment insurance 
plan, a discussion of which is to be 
found in another colunm, and which 
was unanimously adopted.

President Walter Murphy of 
the General Alumni Association 
appointed a special committee last 
spring to review the work of the 
Central Alumni Office with thti 
view to possible recommendations. 
This committee, composed of A. 
B. Andrews, '93, Raleigh; C. W. 
Tillett, '09, Charlotte, and L. R. 
Wilson, '99, Chapel Hill, reported 
at Commencement that, among 
other conclusions : 

The most important finding of 
your committee is that relating to 
the conception of the functions of 
the Alumni Association, as lield, 
formerly by the alumni, and as, 
held today by the Association as 
expressed by th^e Central Office. 
This difference is so fundamental 
and so essential to an understand- 
ing of what the Central Office has 
been, and is now doing, that your 
committee draws particular atten- 
tion to it. 

Prior to the organization of 
the Central Office, alumni work 
as such had been almost al- 
together individualistic. Ordin- 
arily only one or two hours a year 
were devoted to alumni business 
by a group of 200 or 300 alumni 
at the alumni meeting on Ahmmi 
Day. The handling of reunions 
and the keeping of alumni records 
were largely in the hands of Uni- 
versity, though nominally, alumni 
officers. The Alumni Review. 
the organ of the association 
through which the alumni were 
kept informed concerning the work 
of the University, was run by 
alumni representatives, the major- 
ity of whom were directly con- 

nected with the University. Spe- 
cial alumni campaigns such as 
that of 1921 were thought of as 
emergency efforts inaugurated by 
individuals or special groups and 
did not generally involve the whole 
body of alumni or proceed on the 
assumption that the alumni, as a 
fourth great part of the total Uni- 
versity organization, should work 
unitedly, informedly, and purpose- 
fully to the end that the University 
should at all times go forward and 
make increasingly larger contri- 
butions to the life of the students 
and the State for whose service it 
was established. 

Immediately upon its organiza- 
tion, September 21st, 1922, the 
Central Office through its Secre- 
tary and Board of Directors, pro- 
ceeded to its work on the assump- 
tion that all of the 11,000 living 
alumni should be welded into a 
single University unit; that they 
should be kept in close touch with 
one another through properly 
functioning class and local organi- 
zation; that they should be in- 
formed concerning all of the 
activities of the University ; and 
that they should work unitedly in 
making the University in all par- 
ticulars one of America's great 
institutions. It determined that 
what the alumni did or failed to 
do on account of inadequate or- 
ganization should cease to be a 
perplexing problem to the Univer- 
sity, and that, on the contrary, 
what the University did or failed to 
do should become a vital concern 
to the alumni. 




Reunion Classes Sponsor Proposal to Present Alma Mater Million Dollar 

Endowment on Her 150th Birthday 

Following- the lead of this year's 
graduates, eight reunion classes back 
for commencement accepted the invi- 
tation to become party to a plan to 
make Alma Mater a gift of $1,000,000 
on her 150th birthday— 1943. 

The gift will be made through means 
of endowment insurance. Members of 
each class adopting the plan, as the 
classes return for reunions, will be in- 
vited to take out an individual, short- 
term insurance policy of $200, matur- 
ing on October 12, 1943. Annual 
premiums on each policy will be ap- 
proximately $10 a year, depending 
upon the age of the individual. 

Every class will be invited to join 
hands in the propogation of this pro- 
ject, and until a class does consider and 
approve the plan none of its members 
can be solicited for support. The de- 
cision of the class, of course, cannot be 
mandatory upon its members ; it is 

The cycle of reunions is run in five 
years. Since the first group of reunion 
classes considered the plan this year, 
each class will be provided an oppor- 
tunitv to do likewise, in a meeting, by 
June' 1928. 

Gets Hearty Endorsement 

The plan received the unanimous 
and hearty endorsement of the General 
Alumni Association and all classes to 
which it was submitted at commence- 
ment. And the Alunmi Loyalty Fund 
Council, which is to have the sole di- 
rection of the fund, was reorganized 
by the Board of Trustees of the Uni- 
versity in accordance with the resolu- 
tion of the General Alumni Asso- 
ciation, which enlarges the Council and 
enables it to represent thoroughly 
every phase of University life. 

The class of 1924, sponsoring the 
plan, presented it as an opportunity for 
all to make a significant gift to the 
University with a minimum of burden 
to the individual alumnus. According 
to the President of the class, "The mil- 
lion dollars is the least thing to accrue 
from this plan, and for this reason the 
emphasis should be on the successful 
involvement of 5,000 alumni in a close 
and continuing relationship with the 
University. We do not wish any man 
to buy a policy, or to urge this plan 


"It would be better for this 
proposition to fail utterly, or never 
be attempted, than to succeed (in 
terms of dollars and cents) in the 
face of resentment, or slumbering 
opposition on the part of large 
numbers of alumni. Its success 
cannot be measured in terms of dol- 
lars. It is indeed true that the $1,- 
000,000 available on the 12th of 
October, 1943, will be the smallest 
part of the gain to accrue from the 
successful involvement of the 4,000 
to 5,000 alumni (necessary to raise 
the total) in active support, and 
interest in the University's con- 
tinuation and proper development. 
Our life is evolving. This is the 
era of estate-building among the 
larger portion of our alumni. It is 
not desired that they burden them- 
selves financially for the Univer- 
sity. Alumni and Carolina should 
grow together. And to do so they 
must be joined. To be wedded 
genuinely requires mutual consent. 
No man should buy a policy until 
he is convinced of the wisdom and 
worthiness of the entire plan, and 
he feels that it is a privilege for 
him to consult the security of the 
future by making this small gift 
to the University of North Caro- 
lina — current with 5,000 other simi- 
lar size gifts that together shall 
make an ocean. 

"It is believed that this can be 
achieved by using four years in 
which to propagate the plan, allow- 
ing every class an opportunity to 
give it joint consideration in an 
atmosphere entirely free from re- 
straint and goading of any charac- 
ter. The~accomplishment of this 
is the vital concern for in its very 
execution the proper sort of atti- 
tude and University-Alumni rela- 
tionship will be established. This 
will bear fruit far in excess of the 
$1,000,000 proposed. Let not the 
prospect of a million dollars stam- 
pede us. ITriends of the plan and 
of our proper alumni relationships 
will please bear this in mind, for 
now our whole alumni work is in a 
plastic state. As we give it form, 
let us be conscious that the form 
may bless or curse our own efforts 
and the future efforts of others." 

unless he feels and .sees the larger as- 
pects of the effort, rather than feeling 
that it is another means of securing a 

monetary contribution to the Univer- 
sity. Alumni have been allowed to 
drift away from an intimate touch 
with Carolina and Chapel Hill. The 
future of the institution demands their 
close contact, and to secure this con- 
tact is the major purpose of this plan 
which asks that 5,000 alumni, already 
graduated, buy a policy for $200 each." 
The Alumni Loyalty Fund will be 
the sole beneficiary in dividend earn- 
ings as well as in death and disability 

Administration of the Fund 

The Alumni Loyalty Fund was es- 
tablished eight years ago by a special 
act of the trustees of the University 
upon the recommendation of President 
tiraham. The Council of the Fund has 
been increased from six to twelve, all 
of whom are alumni of the University, 
with the exception of the University 
I^resident who is ex officio. Also the 
President and the Secretary of the 
General Alumni Association are mem- 
bers ex officio. The appointments are 
to be made in such manner as to assure 
that every department of University 
life will be represented. 

The fund is to be used "for the in- 
auguration and stimulation of Univer- 
sity life and activities and the improve- 
ment and enrichment of its student life, 
with the consequent enhancement of 
the University's service to the State 
and Nation, and with the especial ob- 
ject of serving purposes other than 
those for which the State ordinarily 
makes sufficient appropriations." The 
money can only be spent upon recom- 
mendation of the Loyalty Fund Coun- 
cil with the approval of the trustees of 
the University, the Council always be- 
ing the initiator. Through this repre- 
sentative alumni Council each alumnus 
is assured that the particular phase of 
University life which is his own pe- 
culiar interest is going to receive the 
proper consideration, in the light of all 
University needs, when there is money 
to be expended. 

Fills In the Gap 

This fund contemplates needs the 
.State does not meet. The ])ublic treas- 
ury follows existing needs ; it seldom 
anticipates them. Hence the State 



treasury cannot be depended upon for 
money with which to add tone and ele- 
gance so essential to University life at 
the present moment. 

North Carolinians generally, it is 
felt, have now achieved that state of 
material well-being that enables them 
to be interested in the finer things of 
life. And it is considered just as much 
a duty of the University to lead this 
new era as it was important in the 
beginning that the institution be 

This need is viewed as the especial 
and proper province of alunnii activity. 
It is pointed out that by setting out to 
meet it the alumni will in no way 
weaken the sense of obligation of the 
State; rather such action will 
strengthen this obligation, because such 
alumni support will make it wise as a 
business proposition for the State to 
invest ever heavier in the University, 
and this demonstration of loyalty on 
the part of the alumni will be such a 
compelling power as to make it impos- 
sible for the State to forget its obliga- 

Next commencement the reunion 
classes will be provided an opportunity 
to consider the plan and those adopt- 
ing it will use 18-year policies, so that 
they, too, will mature in 1943. This 
process will be continued through five 
reunion years, ending in 1928. 

New Form of Gift 

Those classes graduating after 1928 
will be asked to take out 25-year poli- 
cies so their gifts may be made the 
years of the big 25-year reunions. 
Thus there will be not only the $1,000,- 
000 available in 1943, but the gifts of 
classes succeeding 1928 falling due 
regularly following the making of the 
gift in 1943; adding annually to this 
fund, for the years succeeding 1943, 
from $100,000 to $250,000. 

This is a significant departure from 
the method previously in vogue among 
University classes, but it is not with- 
out precedent in other leading insti- 
tutions. A similar plan has been 
adopted by the classes at Harvard, 
Princeton, Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, Rutgers, and many other 
institutions throughout the country, 
and has worked everywhere with strik- 
ing success as compared with other 
means of making gifts. 

The appointment of the full reor- 
ganized Alumni Loyalty Council is 
awaiting a conference between Presi- 
dent Chase of the University and 


Regarding the plan, one alumnus 
has written as follows: 

"It appeals to me as an oppor- 
tunity for the average alumnus to 
do what he has always wished to 
do but never felt quite able to do 
at any one time — make a worth- 
while financial contribution to the 
University. It impresses me as be- 
ing a thoroughly sound business 
transaction. ... It is as a stream 
returning uphill to its source, 
adding strength to its place of 
origin; the alumnus gratifying the 
desire to voluntarily pay his money 
as well as his respect to the Uni- 
versity. ... It is an investment 
sure to pay dividends to each par- 
ticipating alumnus." 

President Everett of the General 
Alumni Association and will be an- 
nounced within the next few weeks. 

As soon as the Council is constituted 
it will meet and arrange for means of 
bringing the project before each mem- 
l)er of the classes of '24, '23, '19, '18, 
'14, '09, '04 and '99, which have 
adopted the plan. The secretaries of 
these classes are also preparing special 
messages for classmates appraising 
tiiem of the work of the class at com- 
mencement and urging them to sup- 
port this special project. 

Advantages of Plan 

The advantages of the plan are, briefly: 

(1) It is safe. A fluctuation of the 
markets may affect the dividends, but it 
cannot touch the policies. 

(2) The addition to the Fund through 
dividends will amount to as much as could 
reasonably be expected by means of invest- 
ment and interest under any other method. 

(3) The expenses of managing the Fund 
(clerical, postage, etc.), will be assumed 
by the insurance company instead of by 
the class. 

(4) Every member of the class will 
feel a personal responsibility for the car- 
rying on of his policy from year to year. 

(5) The gift will be representative of 
the class as a whole instead of being made 
up by donations of a wealthy minority. 
The University has been relying too largely 
upon this latter method in the past. 


President Chase has recovered from 
two operations which he underwent 
about the middle of May in Watts 
Hospital, Durham. He was able to 
attend most of the exercises com- 
mencement, following which he and 
Mrs. Chase went to Wrightsville 
Beach to rest for two weeks. 



Merton Leroy Person, former Dean 
of the Law School of George Wash- 
ington University, Washington, D. C, 
was elected Dean of the School of Law 
of the University of North Carolina at 
the Commencement meeting of the 
Board of Trustees. He succeeds the 
late Lucius Polk McGehee. 

Other nominees were former Judge 
Stephen G. Bragaw, of Washington, 
N. C, whose name was presented by 
Charles Whedbee, of Hertford, and 
seconded by Attorney-General James 
S. Manning, of Raleigh, and J. C. Clif- 
ford of Dunn, nominated by G. K. 
Grantham and seconded by Nat Town- 
send, both of Dunn. President Chase 
presented the name of Mr. Person. 
The vote was Person 39; Bragaw, 13; 
Clifford, 3. 

In selecting Mr. Person the trustees 
supported President Chase in his ambi- 
tion to have as head of the Law School 
a man whose training combined Ijuth 
theory and practice. 



The establishment of a Department 
of Journalism in the University with 
the opening of the fall term was an- 
nounced commencement following the 
meeting of the board of trustees. 

Gerald W. Johnson, at present asso- 
ciate editor of the Greensboro Daily 
Ncivs, will be in charge. Mr. Johnson 
has had years of experience in every 
phase of newspaper work and is re- 
garded as exceptionally well qualified 
to head the new department. 



The Carolina Playmakers are elated 
over a telegram which Director Fred- 
erick H. Koch recently received from 
Augustus Thomas, president of the 
Producing Managers Association of 
America and founder of the American 
National Theatre. The telegram fol- 
lows : 

"In my opinion your theatre is more 
important than a state institution. At 
a Missouri Society dinner night before 
last I referred to you and your theatre 
as destined to lead a nation-wide move- 
ment in the rescue and restoration of 
the drama." 




Whatever may be the defects of the 
college man or a college education, no 
other species of humanity has quite the 
same unique annual experience as the 
college alumnus back for commence- 
ment. I shall never forget the smile 
of supercilious disdain with which Carl 
Taylor, of the class of '14, gym in- 
structor, watched my poor freshman 
attempt to turn a somersault over the 
horse. After a decade's absence from 
the Hill, Carl came back to his reunion 
this year and I had the satisfaction of 
feeling a little less embarrassed in his 
presence. After ten years of work 
and life in Pittsburgh, he says that 
Pittsburgh is the finest place in the 
world to work and North Carolina the 
finest place to live. 

Nothing that I saw at commence- 
ment looked more natural than Oscar 
Leach, unchanged by the passing years, 
standing under the maple tree in front 
of Gerrard Hall, talking in his busi- 
ness-like way with somebody, for all 
the world as if it were 1913-14, and 
lie were outlining some Athletic Asso- 
ciation frame-up. Then to walk into 
the "Y" and see the Holmes Brothers 
hanging around the registration desk ; 
that completed the process of turning 
back the hands of the clock. 

By Airplanes In Five Years 

The increasing prosperity of Caro- 
lina and her sons was most vividly in- 
dicated by the ever-present automobile. 
It will, undoubtedly, be a real problem 
to find a place for the cars that will 
come to commencement five years 
hence, or, possibly, we will come in 
airplanes then. 

Captain E. E. W. Duncan lent a 
pleasing touch of color to the com- 
mencement crowd by his aviator's uni- 
form, and just a hint of prophesy. 
W'itiiin the last few weeks Duncan has 
been as far west as Te.xas, as far 
north as Maine, and as far south as 
Pensacola, and had gone from Pitts- 
burgh to Washington in thirty-eight 
minutes. Alma Mater has certainly 
turned out one fast son. 

The Honorable William B. Um- 
stead, of the class of '16, attdrney-at- 
law of Durham, was present on the 
Hill just long enough to sign his name 
on the re.gistration book, as large 
political interests required his constant 
attention and his immediate return to 
Durham. Some one remarked that on 
the basis of services rendered, Bill 

would be one of the outstanding men 
in the McLean administration. .Some 
one else, apparently of the opposing 
party, said that his early departure 
was due to the fact that it was pay day 
in Durham among the politicians. 

Alumni Returned Early 

Apparently more alumni came liack 
early than usual. I was much sur- 
prised to see Dr. and Mrs. H. H. 
Home, on Sunday, walking as calmly 
down Franklin Street as if they were 
regular residents. 

Many of us had the pleasure of see- 
ing Frank Graham shoot by. The 
class of 1909 made a very dire threat 
that the next time they had a class re- 
union and anybody attempted to give 
Frank Graham a speech to make or a 
job to do, they would blow something 
up. They said they did not see him at 
all until the morning after commence- 
ment. At least he was absent from 
that all-night session that they had in 
the center section of the Old East 
Building, apparently trying to test out 
the renovation job done by T. C. At- 
wood, and see if the building as re- 
novated could stand the strains that the 
old one stood when tliey were students. 

New Law Dean 

'J'he students in the University law 
school are very happy over the decision 
of the trustees to stick by President 
Chase's reconmiendation that the selec- 
tion of a dean be based upon a success 
in teaching law, rather than success in 
practicing law. 

The President's Reception 

Of all the varieties of receptions 
with which we are inflicted, there is 
one which is an unqualified pleasure. 
That is the reception wliich President 
Chase gives to the seniors each com- 
mencement, to which they bring their 
parents. To see the relationship be- 
tween the boy and his parents is a 
source of a very peculiar joy to any 
one who has been interested in the son. 
^'ou see at one glance the inspiration 
which he has had and the handicaps 
which he has overcome, and you feel 
that in most cases the University has 
been able to offer the .son an oppor- 
tunity which it has been worth his 
while to take. There is that fine 
heroism of the struggles which the 
.State has been having in the past to 
be seen in the faces of the parents; 

and that confident ease which comes 
with training and more adequate re- 
sources which the young graduates 
ofifer as the basis for their liope. One 
cannot help but believe that the heroism 
will be there, too. 

That Senior Poem 

"The stand<irdized product of a standardized 
Freshman at the hopper and seniors at the 

Thus began Earl Hartsell's poem for 
the senior class, concluding with, 
"Blessings on all the individual 
grains," being poured out at the ma- 
chine at that time, and "above all 
things, blessings on the hopper itself." 
Comparing this senior poem with those 
which have gone before, filled with 
such images as of King Arthur's band 
of knights and touched with the spirit 
of romance, one is led to wonder 
whether the change is individual with 
Mr. Hartsell, is limited to the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina, or is just a 
part of the universal matter-of-fact- 
ness with which the younger gener- 
ation attempts to bludgeon the senti- 
mentality out of their elders. Regard- 
less of the change itself, many of 
Carolina's sons would join in the 
prayer of the blessings on "this hop- 
per," with an added petition that the 
blessing should take the form of deliv- 
ering us from the curse of standardiza- 
tion and large scale production which 
has laid its blight on so many state 
imiversities. In spite of our name, we 
have not been a state university until 
recently, and some of the spirit and 
distinctness which has characterized us 
in the past was more closely allied 
to that of the great private universities 
of the country than to the newer de- 
velopment in American education, the 
.great .state university of the middle 
west, on whose pattern we have been 
consciously building since 1912. May 
ihe richness of our history, the devo- 
tion of our alumni, the generosity of 
our patrons, the culture of our faculty 
and the appreciation of fine things of 
oiu' leaders, enable us to do the hitherto 
miaccomplished — to develop both quan- 
tity and quality at the same time. 

Let John Do It 

"Ratty" Ranson, that is to say, 
Lucius, the original "Ratty" boasted 
of a sore arm on Wednesday from his 
strenuous pitching in the alumni base- 
ball game on Tuesday. 



The only part of the commencement 
program which has ever tended to fail 
is that part which calls for athletic 
prowess in the sort of hot weather we 
have at commencement. It seems to 
be very difficult to persuade a com- 
mencement crowd to get out on Emer- 
son Field and perform athletic stunts. 
Everybody is perfectly willing to come 
out and watch everybody else do it, 
but it is useless at such time to urge 
the duty of activity. Bob House said, 
when urged to do his duty upon a 
similar commencement occasion, that 
he denied any one's right to deprive 
him of a good time when he had one 
coming to him. I suspect this to be 
the philosophy of most commencement 
people, except those with such a con- 
science as a Frank Graham or such 
indefatigable energy as a "Ratty" 

A Touch of Breezy West 

A touch of the breezy west was 
added to commencement by Mr. and 
Mrs. Hubert Hefifner, who came from 
Arizona, where they have been doing 
missionary work in behalf of the 
"Kochomania" and, incidentally, ac- 
quiring quite a broad western brogue. 

"Mike" Hasn't Changed 

Everv now and then, in a reunion 
crowd, you run across a man who looks 
so identically like he used to that it 
makes you feel right spooky. Such 
was my experience with Mike Dunna- 
gan, who looked for all the world just 
as he did when every Saturday nie:ht 
he used to read the names of those dis- 
tinguished members of the Di Society 
wlio had been fined for non-oerform- 
ance of duty, fined again for failure 
to pav the original fine, and fined again 
for failure to pay the original with the 
accumulated fine. 

Dix Reunion Schedule 

To my mind nothing suggested in 
the way of alumni organization is so 
wholly good as the Dix schedule of 
reunions. The fun which I had in see- 
ing the 1914 men back here was not 
shared by others in my class, because 
this was not our year for reunion; but 
under the Dix plan we will reconstruct 
at each reunion time the student body 
which was in college with us. Accord- 
ing to the schedule in 1930, we will be 
freshmen again, with the classes of '13, 
■*4. and '15 which were here with us 
m the fall of 1912. If we could all 
take our old rooms which we occupied 

that year, we could almost kid our- 
selves into believing that the world war 
has been a dream. 

"Feet" Norris Back 

No one whom I saw was more over- 
whelmed at the change in Chapel Hill 
than "Feet" Norris, who has been 
buried for the last eight years in the 
backward state of Florida, and did not 
know" how much progress there was in 
the world until he came to Chapel Hill 
and got lost among the new buildings. 
Incidentally, "Feet" has made consid- 
erable progress of a very genuine sort, 
and Mrs. Norris was here with him. 

Carolina Playmakers 

Those who were wont to deplore the 
lack of artistic opportunity in Chapel 
Hill, had occasion to rejoice at the 
overflow performance of the Carolina 
Playmakers, and the ever present and 
very good entertainment offered by the 
University band and the University 

A Glint of Tragedy 

The joys of commencement have 
been touched with a glint of tragedy 
for those who know the condition of 
Mrs.Cy Thompson, Jr., who was seri- 
ously injured in an automobile wreck 
in tlie outskirts of Durham on the 
night of Alumni Day. 

Those Who've Retired 

The Alumni register shows that 
most of those who returned were the 
usual run of teachers, lawyers, doctors, 
ministers, merchants, etc. There were 
some exceptions to this, however. It 
was a pleasure to find that some mem- 
i)ers of the classes finisliing in the 80's 
are able now to mark themselves as 
"retired." Alma Mater must have 
given them a pretty good start to have 
kept tiiem running successfully for 
forty years. Dr. J. Y. Joyner offers 
the unusual combination of "farmer- 
educator." Norman Shepard, who 
goes to China soon for the Standard 
Oil Company, reports his profession as 
"nn'ssionary." A graduate of 1923, at 
present a medical student in the Uni- 
versity, voices a venom which will be 
understood by many when he denotes 
his occupation as "scientific slave." 

Scattered Alumni Return 

Just as in the 80's, North Caro- 
linians left their home state for all 
sections of the country, so the out of 
state alumni reunion brought many of 
them back to Chapel Hill. They came 

from as far north as New York, as far 
west as Pasadena, California, as far 
south as Florida. Arizona, Tennessee, 
Alabama, Wisconsin, South Carolina, 
Virginia, and Dallas, Texas, were rep- 
resented and many times on the regis- 
ter they signed up from New York, 
Baltimore, and Washington. 

Judge Winston of Bertie 

Commencement would hardly seem 
natural without Judge Francis D. 
Winston of Bertie, who is always se- 
lected to preside over the general re- 
union in Gerrard Hall despite the fact 
he insists every year that someone else 
share the honors. His infectious per- 
sonality and ready wit always keeps 
the crowd in a happy hmnor. "I've 
been coming back here for forty-five 
years." he said as he introduced the 
class of 1904, "and for the first 25 
\ears I wondered how I ever got my 
diploma, but when this class gradu- 
ated I found out. I saw that if they 
could graduate anybody could." 

Alex Graham Clog Dancing 

Some alumni who visited the head- 
quarters of the reunion class of 1869 
in the infirmary found Alexander Gra- 
ham, aged 86, clog-dancing in the mid- 
dle of the floor. In a few moments he 
stopped clogging and began going 
through setting-up exercises. He told 
George Steele, '89, that was the way to 
keep young. 

Test of Good Athlete 

W. B. Fort, of Fremont, father of 
Mrs. Bob Fetzer, was telling some of 
his classmates of '61 that the test of a 
good athlete is his ability to kick a 
football over the South Building with- 
out touching it. He said he and some 
of his contemporaries were the first to 
introduce rugby at the University. 

Judge Robert Winston 

Judge Robert W. Winston, who was 
a sophomore again in the University 
this year at the age of 61, enjoyed tell- 
ing the alumni at the business meeting 
of the Association how it felt to be 
seeing student life at close range again. 
"I come here every morning and see 
2,500 boys," he said. "I know what 
they are going to do for this institu- 
tion. I tell you North Carolina has 
just started. You are so near the pic- 
ture you cannot see it. Come to Wash- 
ington as I have and look back at it, 
your mother, and you will see of all 
the states in the Union, everybody has 
turned their eyes to North Carolina." 





A large number of University 
alumni were nominated for public office 
in the State-wide primary held June 7. 

The final majority of A. \V. Mc- 
Lean, law '92, over J. \V. Bailey for 
the Democratic nomination for Gover- 
nor was declared to be 67,624, with 
McLean carrying 83 of the 100 coun- 
ties in the State. The total vote was 
LtL197 for McLean to 83.-574 for 

In the race for the noniiuation for 
Lieutenant-Governor J. Elmer Long, 
'05, was winner, under a campaign 
agreement with R. R. Reynolds, '06, 
that the leading man in the primary be 
declared the nominee. Long received 
80.231 votes, Reynolds, 68,676, and 
Tam C. Bowie, '09, 62,086. 

Graham Is Selected 

In tlie contest for Attorney-General. 
Charles Ross, '05, lost to Dennis G. 
Brummitt, by a vote of 78,411 to 

W. A. Graham, Jr., was picked for 
Commissioner of Agriculture, piling 
up 92,561 votes as against 76,808 for 
Fred P. Latham, his nearest opponent. 

Warren Gets Big Vote 
Lindsay C. Warren, Law '08, was 
declared the nominee for Congress in 
the First District, he having a clear 
majority over the field of four candi- 
dates. Total vote, 24,065, giving Mr. 
Warren a majority of 1,939 votes over 
the field. 

In the Fourth District Congressman 
E. W. Pou, '86, was nominated over 
Willie M. Person, '87, bv a majoritv 
of 13,812. 

In the Ninth Congressional district 
A. L. Buhvinkle, '05, was nominated 
over Dr. J. D. Dimmette, by a total of 
21,980 to" 1,269. 



Locke Craig, '80, former Governor of 
North Carolina, died at his home on the 
Swannanoa River on June 9 following a 
lingering illness of four years. 

Angus VVillon McLean, Law '\li, who has been selected Democratic nominee for 


Locke Craig entered the class of 1880 
at the age of 15, the associate of the 
Winston boys, Francis D. and Robert 
W., Chas. D. Mclver, the latter to be- 
come the great educator ; Edward A. 
Alderman, now President of the Univer- 
sity of Virginia, and Charles B. Aycock, 
with whom later on he was associated 
in great events in State history. He was 
a diligent student and fond of speaking 
and writing essays and was chosen as 
commencement orator when his class was 
graduated while he was less than 20 years 
old, the youngest graduate of the Uni- 

The young graduate had studied law, 
but lacking funds, took the place as 
assistant instructor in cliemistry at the 
University for a year, teaching next year 
in a private school in Chapel Hill. It 
was in 1883 that he migrated to Ashe- 
ville with the intention of practicing 
law, but here again for pecuniary rea- 
sons he taught school part of the time, 
being engaged at other times in the 
lumbering business, but at all times mak- 
ing friends of all with whom he came 
in contact. 


Walter Clark, Chief Justice of the 
North Carolina Supreme Court, died at 
his home in Raleigh on May 19, follow- 
ing a stroke of apoplexy. He was 78 
years old. 

Judge Clark had been Chief Justice of 
Ihc Supreme Court for 22 years and for 
16 years prior to 1903 an associate jus- 
tice. Had he lived until August he would 
been past his seventy-eighth year and 
within a year would have rounded out 
two score years of judicial service, first 
as judge of the Superior Court for four 
years, then for 14 years on the Supreme 
Court bench as an associate justice, and 
finally for a quarter of a century as chief 


Tlic University lost one of its most 
loyal and devoted friends in the death 
of Dr. Charles Alphonso Smith, noted 
educator and lecturer and head of the 
Department of English at the United 
States Naval Academy, who passed away 
at Annapohs, Md., on June 13, following 
a protracted illness. He was a native of 
Greensboro and was sixty years of age. 

Dr. Smith had been at Annapolis since 
1917, following eight years at the Uni- 
versity of Virginia. Previously he had 
been head of tlie English department at 
the University of North Carolina and had 
been a member of the faculties of Louisi- 
ana State University and of Johns Hop- 
kins. He was one of the best known 
English scholars in the United States and 
was widely recognized in his field. 

In addition to his strictly academic 
work Dr. Smith was an author who.'ie 
works, both technical and more popular, 
have attracted attention throughout the

A Trust Company as Executor 

Costs Less Than An 


This is an advertisement of carefully compiled facts and figures. It is of interest to you and 
your family because it proves beyond question that the experienced services of a Trust Com- 
pany as Executor and Trustee cost less than those of an individual. 

The figures are taken from the Returns as filed in the offices of Clerks of the Superior Courts 
of North Carolina. The figures : 

29 Estates Settled 60 Estates Settled 

by Trust Companies by Individuals 

■Gross Value $2,642,053.03 $3,775,406.19 

Average Size 100,000.00 50,000.00 

Average Cost of Settling 3.65% of gross value 4.1 % of gross value 

These figures show that it costs the heirs of an estate $4.50 more per thousand to have the 
estate settled by an individual than by a trust company. 

Hence, in addition to its other advantages over the individual Executor and Trustee a Trust 
Company has the advantage of economy.
