The Summer The Summer school for teachers for 
School 1912 was so successful and it revealed 

such splendid possibilities for serv- 
ice to the State that everything which might 
strengthen it in the future should receive the serious 
consideration of the University this Winter. Such 
consideration should be directed along the lines of re- 
affect for good the life of the community and the moving known obstacles and adding helpful features.

in his office. The office does not have to he accepted, In view of the many subjects which are taught in 

but once in, the Secretary should discharge his full the various schools of the State and the 

obligation. 



In the case of the Secretaries of the classes and 
local associations of this University, the opportunity 
for service just now is unusually great. Their field, in 
the main, has been uncultivated and they have an 
opportunity which it is to be hoped they will seize. 



need of teachers to receive instruction in those sub- 
jects, a wider choice of courses should he offered. \t 
present the University is offering all the subjects it 
can, but that does not relieve the fact that North 
Carolina teachers cannot receive instruction in the 
Summer school in all of the subjects taught in North 
Carolina schools. 






ct tins a larger faculty representing more 
1 jnteres «ld be secured, and in addition 

an effort should be made through recitals, entertain- 
ments lectures and special feature of high cultural 
and inspirational value, not only to instruct, but to 
enliven and inspire. The suggestion does not point 
back to the old Summer school idea of mere lecture 
ks towards studying, at the I mver- 
sity, under Halls, or McMurries, or Suzzallos, partic- 
ipating in student fetes, and seeing the Lien Greet or 
other players which help to draw- and refresh— hun- 
ts of North Carolina students to Charlottesville, 
Knoxville, and Columbia University. 

These hindrances, of course, are reducible to a 
question of money. The last session of the school 
cost approximately $3,000, of which the University 
contributed $1,000. That amount will have to be in- 
creased and larger revenues provided if the school is 
to do us full work. 

The most serious need, however, is one that can 
be met with but little expense. The school has not 
worked out a system of courses and credits such as is 
operative in the most successful Summer schools 
whereby a teacher can pursue definite courses for a 
number of years and can receive in return certificates, 
credits, or privileges from the University and the State 
Department of Education. Such a system would draw 
a more serious class of students, it would hold them 
a longer time, and it would equip them for a serv- 
ice for which the State could well afford to grant 
them special professional privileges. 

Present An analysis of the registrar's statis- 

Registration tics up to November 1st, shows a 

total of 816 students present at the 

University, the number being only five less than any 

d for any entire year in the history of the Univer- 
Thc number will be further increased at the 
opening of the second term and will pass all former 
records of attendance. Of the 816, 604 are under- 
graduates, 23 are in the graduate department, 117 are 
in the law school, 53 in the medical school, and 30 in 
the school of pharmacy. Those counted twice num- 
ber 11. Of the G04 undergraduates 75 are seniors, 

juniors, 148 sophomores, 232 freshmen, and 
special students.

<',i iv.-Elect Craig 



The elections on Alumni Day in 
June and on the fifth of No- 
vember just passed bring promi- 
nently before the alumni two 
of their number who for many years have 
taken a leading part in the affairs of the 
University and State and who, through their integrity 
and devotion to duty, have brought great honor to 
their alma mater — Gen. Julian S. Carr. '66, president 
of the General Alumni Association, and Hon. Locke 
Craig, '80, Governor-elect of North Carolina. 

In succeeding Colonel Kenan as president of the 
Alumni Association, General Carr comes to the office 
after a long connection with Chapel Hill and the Uni- 
versity and a record of unusual service to the Uni- 
versity and State. Born in the village; a member of 
the class of '66, which left the class room for the 
shell-swept battle front; for years a trustee and bene- 
factor of the University; conversant with the tradi- 
tions of town and campus for sixty years, General 
Carr brings to the presidency of the association a

full knowledge of his alma mater and a love for it 
which no one dares question. Under his direction the 
association should make genuine progress. 

Preceded hy Gov. W. W. Kitchin, I. aw 'Sy and 
chairman of the Hoard of Trustees, 1909-T3, whose 
administration has heen especially marked hy prog- 
ress in the fields of education and business, Governor- 
elect Craig finds the State able and ready to consider 
questions relating to its further development and 
welfare. Opportunities for the upbuilding of the 
State lie before him. As a son of the University \v.io 
has already proven his ability to serve the State well, 
who treasures the University's teachings and attempts 
to make real its highest ideals, who is familiar with 
the records of other Carolina sons preceding him who 
have wrought nobly in the office to which he has 
been elevated, The Review predicts for him a wise 
leadership from which all the State will derive benefit. 
It congratulates him upon becoming the first citizen 
of the State, and wishes him well.

Charles l'>. ( >n the 6th of December, celebrated 
Aycock throughout the State as "North Caro- 

lina Day" by the public schools, 
the life and public service of Charles Brantley Aycock, 
of the class of 1880, were lovingly commemorated and 
North Carolina school children and teachers payed 
glad tribute to the memory of their greatest educa- 
tional Governor. 

In the high achievement of Governor Aycock, the 
University has much of which to be proud. At his 
graduation he carried away from the University a 
commanding presence, a rare personality, a splendidly- 
trained mind, a high purpose, and a heart filled with 
love for his people. While a student within its walls 
he lighted his torch at the same altars from which 
Murphey and Yancey and Wiley and M elver carried 
light to the people of the State. The spirit of service, 
which more than anything else has characterized the 
true University man, had fallen upon him, and under 
the power of that ideal he went out to enrich the 
lives of all the children who were to follow after 
him. 

His sudden death at Birmingham, Ala., on the 
night of April 4th, while delivering his splendid ad- 
dress on "Universal Education," occasioned a more 
universal grief and sense of personal loss than has 



ever been felt in the Stale at the passing of one of its 

>()1IS. 

The nature of Governor Aycock's work for the 
Stale, the source of the impelling cause King hack of 
it. the esteem in which he was universally held 
by reason of his service devotedly rendered, are pre- 
sented elsewhere in this issue in an article 
to which the attention of all the readers of The Re- 
view is drawn. 

* * * * * 

Debating Expressoins received by the committee 
Union from the societies in charge of the 

Debating Union described elsewhere in 
this issue, indicate a widespread approval of 
the plan by the schools of the State and the alumni. 
In recent years, especially since the establishment of 
the two hundred or more State high schools, many 
University men having gone from the societies with a 
high appreciation of the value of debating, have at- 
tempted to provide for their pupils the kind of 
advantages enjoyed by themselves. To effect this 
they have established debating societies and have tried 
to interest neighboring schools in inter-school debate. 
The chief obstacle in the way has been that of secur- 
ing proper reference material. Recently the Uni- 
versity Library and the North Carolina Library Com- 
mission, the latter especially, have overcome this in 
part by furnishing such material free except for trans- 
portation. Now that the societies and the library are 
to furnish the material for the special subject to be 
debated by all the schools entering the union, this diffi- 
culty will be entirely obviated in the case of this 
one subject. 

With this practical hindrance out of the way, de- 
bating in the secondary schools ought to make a long 
stride forward. The societies, long versed in the man- 
agement of debates and winners in twenty-one out of 
thirty inter-collegiate contests, are in a position to help 
the schools and their effort to do this is wortln of 
the commendation it is receiving.

qualities, the splendid quality of loving devotion to

of it and working for it he could promote its 

welfare. 

the alumnus who has been away from the 1 fill 
for three or seven or fifteen years without once hav- 
ing returned to participate in some of the University's 
festal days or visit it when engaged in its regular 
tasks. Dr. Battle's attendance upon commencement 
for thirty-three years consecutively, not to mention 
numerous occasions on which the University and its 
officers were cheered by his kindly presence, and the 
painstaking care which he devoted to the discharge 
of the details of his office, should be matter of thought. 
In them is something which indicates what the true 
relation of an alumnus to the University is and how it 
may be properly expressed. 

Class of Out of a total of 83 men receiving degrees 
1 012 at commencement in June, 71 who have 

reported to the University their new posi- 
tions, have taken work as follows: 30 are teaching, 23 
of the number teaching in the public schools of the 
State ; 1 1 are studying law ; 4 are studying medicine ; 
10 are in business; 3 are in electrical work; 2 are en- 
gaged in public road engineering; 4 are pursuing 
graduate studies ; 2 are farming ; 1 is engaged in Y. 



M. C. A. work; 2 are studying for the ministry; 2 are 
engaged in national government service. 

As in former years the number entering the pro- 
fession of teaching exceeds all others, the number this 
year indicating a higher per cent of those reporting 
than in 1910 and 191 1 when 25 out of 60 and 33 out 
of 93 entered the profession. 

The class of 1912 indicates that it is going to give 
a good account of itself, and especially in the public 
school work of North Carolina. 



By Way of The Review has cause to feel very 
Appreciation grateful to the alumni and the press 
on account of the many letters 
of congratulation and public appreciative expressions 
received by it following the publication of its first 
number. With an editorial board only a month old at 
the time of its first appearing, with no definite policies 
by which to steer, and with no connections with the 
field except through the secretary, just how to proceed 
was by no means clear. The fine co-operation of the 
Secretary, the quick response of class and local asso- 
ciation secretaries, the services freely given by a 
number of friends on the Hill, made the number pos- 
sible. If it has been in keeping with the expectations 
of its well-wishers, The Review is genuinely glad and 
passes the praise along, with genuine thanks, to those 
who came so generously to its aid.

AYCOCK AS AN EDUCATIONAL LEADER 

By R. D. W. Connor, '99 



Public School System of North Carolina to be 
Abolished?"' Tlie same evening be himself, as Senior 
orator, discussed in an elaborate oration, "North 
Carolina's Deficiency and Our Duty." His first public 
office (1881-1882), was the superintendency of the 
Wayne county public school system. For more than 
seventeen years (1887-1901, 1905-1909), he served on 
the Board of Trustees of the Goldsboro Public 
Schools, most of the time as chairman. 

Though Aycock well deserves the title that by uni- 
versal consent has been given him of the "Educational 
Governor," he did not initiate the movement of which 
he came to be the chief exponent and the most 
eloquent advocate. Other University men had 
already paved the way for his work. In ante-bellum 
gives to a governor inspired with a great purpose, a' days Joseph Caldwell, President of the University 



The constitutional power of the governor of North 
Carolina to affect legislation is a negligible quantity. 
Possessing no veto power and but little patronage, he 
has no "big stick" with which he can persuade refrac- 
tory legislators to see public questions as he sees them. 
It is related that William Hooper, after the adjuorn- 
ment of the Convention of 1776, that framed the Con- 
stitution of North Carolina, was asked by one of his 
constituents what powers the new Constitution con- 
ferred upon the governor. "Power, sir," replied 
Hooper, "to sign a receipt for his salary !" From that 
day to this no additional power over legislation has 
been given to the governor. 

Nevertheless there have been governors of North 
Carolina who realized that the prestige of the office 



power for moulding public opinion and thus influenc- 
ing legislation more potent than any "big stick" could 
ever give. Such in ante-bellum days was Governor 
Morehead (U. N. C. 181 7), who, using the prestige 
of his office for the advancement of works of internal 
improvements, won for himself a distinctive place in 
the history of the State ; such in our own day was 
Governor Glenn who, by throwing the prestige of his 
office behind the prohibition movement, gave to it a 
momentum which otherwise it never could have 
acquired. More strongly than any of his predeces- 
sors, did Charles B. Aycock realize the effectiveness of 
the weapon which the office placed in the hands of the 
incumbent. It was this that induced him to seek it. 
Merely to be governor meant nothing to him; to be 
governor with a purpose, meant everything to him. 
And he had a purpose, and it was in order that he 
might throw behind this purpose all the moral in- 
fluence of the office, that he desired to be governor. 
His purpose was to uplift all the people of North 
Carolina, white and back, through the power of 
universal education. 

Aycock's interest in public education was not a sud- 
den caprice. As a mere boy, before entering the Uni- 
versity, he had taught a public school in Wayne county. 
At the University he took a deep interest in the sub- 
ject. Shortly before his graduation he caused to be 
debated in the Phi Society this query : "Ought the 



1804-1835, Archibald D. Murphey, of the class of 1799, 
and Calvin H. Wiley, of the class of 1840, whom 
Aycock called the "founder of our public schools and 
the most eloquent advocate of them"- — laid the founda- 
tion of a system that promised great things for the 
future. This system, however, was wrecked in the 
cataclysm of Civil War and Reconstruction. After 
the war, other University men, among them Alexander 
Mclver, class of 1853, Charles D. Mclver, class ot 
1881, and Edwin A. Alderman, class of 1882, revived 
the public school system. It was the harvest of the seed 
sown by these men that Aycock came to reap. Neither 
did Aycock formulate the educational policies of his 
administration. This was the work for the trained 
educators and he realized it. "I have not stood alone 
in this work," he said, "I did not originate it." His 
work was to present the cause to the people and to 
secure their support without which all the policies of 
the professional educator, however wise, would have 
been futile. Aycock's distinctive service to the cause 
of education was that he brought to it the prestige and 
influence of his high office, and gave to it, without stint. 
the benefit of bis own matchless eloquence. The peo 
pie heard him because he was governor; they listened 
because they knew (hat his earnestness and sincerity 
were unfeigned; they followed him because his 
eloquence was irresistible. 

The adoption of the suffrage amendment in 1900, 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



40 

with its educational test for suffrage after [908, gave 
Vycock the opportunity for winch he had been wait- 
d preparing. With this as the basis of his 
appeal, leaving the technical details of the problem to 
the Superintendent of Public Instruction and his pro- 
fessional advisors, Aycock went to the people upon 
the general issue of universal education. 

During his campaign he warned the crowds that 
thronged to hear him : 

-If von Note For me, 1 want you to do so with the 
distincl understanding thai I shall devote the four 
vears of mi official term to the upbuilding of the 
■ llb ools of North Carolina. I shall endeavor 

fol c hild in the State to get an education. 

In his fnaugural Address he renewed this pledge, 

saying: 

'-( >n a hundred platforms, to half the voters of the 
State in the late campaign, 1 pledged the State its 
ength it- heart, its wealth, to universal education. 
,1 , m r art I declare to you that it shall be my . 
constant aim and effort during the four years that I 
shall endeavor to serve the people of this State to 
redeem this most solemn of all our pledges." 

Vycock fully redeemed this pledge. Shortly after 
coming into office he inaugurated the educational cam- 
paign that came to be the chief event of his admin- 
istration. The purpose of his campaign was to pro- 
mote local taxation, consolidation of school districts, 
better school houses and longer school terms. Under 
his leadership men of every profession and business 
volunteered their services, and for the first time in the 
history of North Carolina politics yielded first place 
in public interest to education. 

As in the amendment campaign of [900, so in the 
educational campaign of 1902, the man whom the peo- 
ple were most eager to hear was Charles B. Aycock. 
I hit his work did not stop with the campaign of [902. 
For four years he let pass no opportunity, indeed he 
frequently sought opportunities to present his cause 
to the people, lie never wearied of his theme, and 
the people never tired of hearing him. 

;ophy of education is embraced in 
his speech accepting the nomination for governor in 
1900, in his Inaugural Address, in his speech on "How 
the South ma] il Prestige," and in his great 

speech on "Universal i ion." The length of this 

article forbids om these speeches, 

had no edu 1 particular program 

iple of the State 



i„ "Universal Education"; and when he declared in 
favor of universal education he meant exactly what 
tha t expression implies. I le included in it the education 
of the negro as well as that of the white. One of the 
finest passages of his Inaugural Address is that in which 
he assured the negroes of the State that his administra- 
tion would not be unfriendly to them. "Their every 
right under the Constitution,- he declared, •'shall be 
absolutely preserved." Among those rights was the 
right to a public school education, for the Constitution 
distinctly declares that while the two races shall be 
taught in separate schools, "there shall be no discrimi 
nation in favor of or to the prejudice of either race." 




This right Aycock was determined to maintain, not 
merely for the benefit of the negroes, hut also because 
he felt that the safety, prosperity and honor of the 
State were involved in doing so. 

Opposition to the education of the negro took the 
form of a demand for an amendment to the Constitu- 
tion to provide for a distribution of the school taxes 
to each race on a basis of what each paid. A bill pro 
viding for the submission of such an amendment was 
introduced in the Legislature of [901. Governor 
Aycock, in the most unmistakable term- stated to 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



41 



members of the Legislature that, while he would not 
attempt to influence their action, he should regard the 
adoption of such an amendment, or the enactment of 
such legislation, as a violation of his pledge to the 
people and of the plighted faith of his party; and he 
went so far as to declare that in such an event he would 
resign his office and retire to private life. 

I lis decided stand, supported by certain leaders of 
the Legislature, prevented the bill's ever coming to a 
vote, and the matter was settled for a time. But it 
would not down, and during the summer of 1902 
several county conventions declared in favor of such a 
division of the school taxes. Among these was 
Aycock's own county of Wayne. But Aycock, 
entrenched in what he believed to be the right and 
just position, stood firm. The most powerful passage 
in his message to the Legislature of 1903 is devoted to 
a discussion of this question. 

"The amendment," he declared, "is unjust, unwise 
and unconstitutional. It would wrong both races, 
would bring our State into condemnation of a just 
opinion elsewhere, and would mark us as a people who 
have turned backwards. * :; * Let us not seek to be 
the first State in the Union to make the weak man 
helpless. This would be a leadership that would bring 
us no honor but much shame. * * * Let us be done with 
this question, for while we discuss it, the white chil- 
dren of the State are growing up in ignorance." 

Aycock's opposition to this measure determined its 
fate. Defeated in 1901 and in 1903, it reappeared 
again in 1905. But Aycock's appeal to the 
people's sense of right and justice had found a 
responsive cord, and the amendment could not muster 
a corporal's guard in 1905, and since then has not been 
considered even so much as in the list of debatable 
questions in North Carolina. 

Aycock never deceived himself, or anybody else, by 
trying to make it appear that his educational policy 
could be carried out without largely increased ex- 
penditures. He frankly admitted that much more 
money would be needed than the people of North 
Carolina were accustomed to spending, and that this 
money must be raised by increased taxes. 

Men of property frequently met his appeals for 
extra school taxes with the declaration that they would 
be willing to pay the taxes for schools if the Legis 
laturc would pass a compulsory attendance law. 
Aycock recognized the force of this position, but 
opposed the remedy suggested. Me preferred to de 



pend upon a healthy public opinion that would compel 
parents to send their children to school and keep them 
there. In line with this position, he favored and 
recommended to the Legislature the passage of an 
act regulating the labor of children in textile and 
furniture factories. llis recommendation, the first 
of its kind ever made by a governor of North Caro- 
lina, was to forbid absolutely the employment in such 
factories of any child under twelve years of age, the 
employment on night work of any child under 
fourteen, and, after 1905, the employment either day 
or night, of any child under fourteen who could not 
read and write. Such a clause, said be, would be "a 
mild form of compulsory education around factory 
towns." This recommendation resulted 111 putting on 
the statute books of North Carolina the first child 
labor law in the history of the State. 

It is too early to estimate justly the result of 
Aycock's work. Nevertheless something can be done. 
Since he began his educational campaign, public school 
expenditures in North Carolina have increased three- 
fold; more than 1200 school districts have voted to 
levy special school taxes; one month has been added 
to the school term; more than 3000 modern school 
houses have been erected; the value of school prop- 
erty has been trebled; the average salary of teachers 
has been increased 50 per cent.; the number of teach- 
ers has been increased by 3,500; 3,000 rural school 
libraries containing 300,000 volumes, have been 
established; the percentage of illiteracy among the 
whites of the State has been reduced from tg \ to 
12.3, among the negroes from 47.6 to 31.9, and aiming 
both from 28.7 to 18.5. Better than all this a revolu- 
tion has been wrought in the attitude of the people 
toward education. 

This revolution can be traced in no small degrei 
the momentum which Aycock gave to the cause, not 
only in North Carolina, but throughout the entire 
South. I would lay no claim to all the credit of this 
marvelous work for him. indeed he. himself, would

RICHARD HENRY BATTLE, '54 
Secretary of the Board of Trustees from 1 891 to 191 2 



Richard Henry Battle, who died in Raleigh on May 
[Oth, M/U. was one of the most honored sons of the 
University of North Carolina. Horn in Franklin 
county, December 3rd, [835, he was graduated with 
the highest honors in 1854 and was tutor in Greek from 
[854 to [858. From [879 until his death he was a 
member of the Board of Trustees and of the Executive 
Committee of the University. In [891 he was chosen 
Secretary and Treasurer of the Board of Trustees and

continued so until his death. No alumnus was more 
attached to his alma mater than Mr. Battle, and for 
thirty-three years he attended every meeting of the 
Board of Trustees and every University Commence- 
ment, and shortly before his death donated to the Law 
School bis rofessional library. 

In December [858, Mr. Battle opened a law office 
in YVadesboro, but on the outbreak of the War be- 
tween the States became first lieutenant in Company 
I. 42nd Regiment of North Carolina troops. In Sep- 



tember 1862, he left the army on account of ill health 
and was appointed private secretary to Governo. 
Vance, which position he continued to hold until he 
became State Auditor in August 1864. 

After the close of the War he entered upon the 
practice of his profession in Raleigh, first in co-part- 
nership with Honorable Samuel F. Phillips, afterwards 
with his father and elder brother as William 11. Rat- 
tle & Sons, still later as Battle & Mordecai, and 
finally as Richard H. Battle & Son. As a lawyer Mr. 
Rattle stood high, at the top of the profession, with the 
perfect confidence and esteem of all who knew him. 
Among his brother lawyers be was always revered and 
loved, and none had the slightest bitter feeling against 
him on account of antagonistic interests in litigation. 
Towards the close of his life he was considered the 
"father" of the Wake County Bar. always presiding 
at its meetings when present, and his fine character 
and Christian righteousness have left a lasting impres- 
sion on the Bar of the State. 

During his whole life Mr. Battle was an active mem- 
ber of the Protestant Episcopal Church. In 1874 he 
was one of the leaders in forming the Church of the 
Good Shepherd of Raleigh, and became its Senior 
Warden. He was a member of the Diocesan and 
General Conventions of the Church for many years, 
attended the Pan-Anglican Congress in London in 
1908 as a delegate from the Diocese of East Carolina, 
was a member of the Boards of Trustees of St. Mary's 
School and of St. Augustine's School, and was one of 
the three Trustees of the Diocese of North Carolina. 
In Church work, as in all of his undertakings, he was 
constant, laborious and true. Although a man of mild 
and courteous manners, he was an aggressive, courage- 
ous Christian character. 

In no sense a political) Mr. Battle was always inter- 
ested in public questions and ready to give bis serv- 
ices to his party and to his State. Besides his scrv-

ices to the Confederate States and as State Auditor in 
1864-1865, he was chairman of the State Democratic 
Executive Committee from 1884 to 1888, was nom- 
inated in 1875 for a seat in the State Constitutional 
Convention and in 1880 for the State Senate, and in 
1885 he was offered an appointment as Superior 
Court Judge by Governor A. M. Scales, which position 
he declined. In 191 1 he was elected and served as a 
member of the General Assembly from Wake county 
in the House of Representatives, and by his continuous 
attendance and laborious exertions, probably hastened 
his death. In social and municipal matters he was 
equally public spirited, so that almost no good cause of 



a public nature was launched in Raleigh, during his 
long residence, without his hearty co-operation. Ik- 
was President of the Trustees of Rex Hospital from 
its opening until his death. 

It would be hard to overestimate a character such 
as Richard Henry Battle's, both to the public and to 
his intimate friends and acquaintances. He was so 
absolutely above the suspicion of a dishonest thing, 
that the depraved respected and admired him ; and he 
was so courageous in doing his duty, that he was an 
inspiration to all of his friends and acquaintances

DEAN GRAHAM TO THE WAKE ALUMNI 
He Outlines the Standards of the University and Its Place in North Carolina Life 



The address of Dean E. K. Graham to the Wake 
Alumni on the night of October 12th presented such a 
clear exposition of what the University stands for in 
North Carolina that The Review wishes to give it in 
full as it appeared in the News and Obsei'ver of 
October 13th. — Editor. 

Dean Graham began by quoting from two 
letters that he had received during the past week — ■ 
one from an alumnus — one from a distinguished 
North Carolinian, not an alumnus. Both expressed 
criticism, both expressed a desire to know more about 
the college, and a belief that there was a separation 
between the daily life of the people and the University 
that should not exist. Said the latter letter: "I hope 
the time will never come in the history of the State, 
when the University will cease to be the object of the 
pride of the people of this State. I should like to 
feel and to know that North Carolina has a University 
the equal of any institution of learning, and see it pro- 
duce men capable of knowing the truth and of sacrific- 
ing themselves for principle, and capable of produc- 
ing beneficial results by these sacrifices." This let- 
ter concludes with interesting criticisms on the rela- 
tion of the State University and the State. 

"The standards suggested by these letters I believe 
to be the correct standards, and if followed, I believe 
will lead to permanent progress: first, a full knowl- 
edge of what sort of University we have built during 
these one hundred and nineteen years of our history, 
and a full knowledge of what sort we are building; 
second, a full knowledge of the people of North Caro- 
lina, what sort they are and what are the needs of the 
State they are building; third, a full knowledge of the 
permanent, universal, non-local standards of educa- 
tion and culture for which any great institution of 
learning must stand regardless of its location. 



"And with full knowledge should come that free and 
full criticism without which there can be no healthful 
merit. I would not abate one jot or tittle of full 
knowledge of the minutest detail of present University 
life. The elimination of every evil, great and small, 
must be its rigorous standard ; and to accomplish that, 
it welcomes from the people, whose creation it is — the 
expression of their life and genius as truly as their 
government is — their sincerest and severest scruitiny 
and judgment. The people own it, who shall say that 
they shall not guide and criticise it? 

"But public ownership, whether of the government 
or of an educational institution, carries with the high 
privileges of ownership and criticism, high respon- 
sibilities. Involved in a local political fight, or a poli- 
tical scandal, we are apt to lose the larger vision, and 
identify democracy with the boss of the first ward. 
So judgment of an educational institution, unless 
criticism is based on full knowledge and laid on broad 
principles, obscures one hundred years of patient and 
heroic progress, and confuses all genuine values with 
a humiliating incident in student life, or a defeated hall 
team. In the clays that followed the tragic affair that 
opened this present session, 1 confess that my heart 
was for a moment struck weak with shame, and the 
sick sense of failure: bul a- 1 got my true hearings, as 
I looked at the whole college ; at the whole student 
body; at the group of devoted men whose whole am- 
bition is to serve the varied cause of learning; ai the 
whole history of the college; and above all at the Stale 
and her deep and tenacious faith in the idea that the 
college represents, every doubt left my mind, the real 
University — what she is and what she may he — in 
swift and confident majesty rose once he fore me, with 
just this consecrated hope: that we of the college, and 
we of the State shall take what she is. and valiantly 
make of her what she should he and must he.

ndard. Among the multitude of educational insti- 
tutions over this country that have been endowed with 
the wealth of public and private benefaction, is North 
olina's University worthy on a basis of national 
comparison .'" 

The speaker then gave in rapid view, various evi- 
dences of the national estimate; first, recent testi- 
mony of three or four educational critics of national 
reputation: second, recognition of the University s 
high standard and the achievements of her faculty 
by national societies. The national scholarship society 
of I'lu Beta Kappa recognized it among the first of 
Southern universities, and the national debating so- 
ciety did the same thing; third, the standing of its 
faculty among the scholars of the country in every 
field of scholarly endeavor. 

lie digressed for a moment here, for a critical com- 
ment on the student body, in view of recent criticism 
of student conduct and government, and said in sum- 
mary that he believes— and he asked the frank judg- 
ment of the alumni who know— that taking into view 
the whole eight hundred men who compose the student 
community, that there is not a body of young men in 
the country who excel them "in high seriousness of 
purpose, devotion to the business for which they come, 
nor finer human stuff from which to make men and 
citizens." 

These and other evidences he characterized as in- 
complete and inadequate. One comprehensive piece 
of evidence, as complete and adequate as human testi- 
mony can be, he then presented. 

"1 saw, a month or two ago, a letter from the ex- 
pert on higher education at Washington written to the 
president of the board of trustees of a college in this 
State, answering an inquiry as to how this expert 
rated the University of North Carolina. His answer 
was that he placed the University in the group of the 
firsl colleges of America. I was told b\ a member of 
the faculty of Meredith College, that this expert told 
her the same thing. This expert lias spent several 
in making his investigations; so far as I know 
be had never been in North Carolina, until he came 
to study our colleges. His estimate is based: first, on 
the opinion that the great graduate schools of the 
country hold of the work of the colleges: and second 
on a careful | on and comparison 

made by the expert himself. This investigation is ex 
hausth ;t, the entrance requirements — 

units, enfoi 1, requirements for 

degrees: third. ards and in- 

action; fourth, c if the facul'v. 



i raining, number in proportion to students, salary, 
average teaching, scholarly activity, clerical duties; 
sixth, laboratories; seventh, endowment; eighth, 
th, buildings: tenth, general estimate- 
spirit 'and atmosphere, efficiency of graduates, admin- 
istration, organization and publications. 

"< )nlv two other colleges in the South, I believe, 
occupy so high a rating as the University of_ our 
State, in the' opinion ot this unbiased critic of the 
government whose qualifications to judge are unques- 
tioned, and the range of whose investigations covers 
the whole United States. 

"There is our college! And tonight as we celebrate 
her one hundred and nineteenth brithday, we may well 
rejoice in her present as well as her past — worthy of 
our love and our loyalty, worthy above all of the zeal- 
ous devotion of every North Carolinian wdio would 
cherish ami promote every good and great thing that 
the State has labored to build. .Measured in terms of 
her greatest dimensions, interpreted in terms of the 
profound realities for which she stands, judged on a 
national basis, and by national standards, 1 believe that 
the University of North Carolina is the best of her 
civilization that North Carolina has to show to the 
world. 

"And there is good reason why this should be so. It 
is here more than anywhere else, that we have kept in 
harmony with national thought, and the basic idea in 
American democracy. So it has been directly respon- 
sible for our greatest men. The devotion of the peo- 
ple of North Carolina through all of their poverty and 
privation to the great idea on which a State Univer- 
sity is founded, is what distinguishes them from their 
sister commonwealths to the South, who have but re- 
cently waked up to it; and it is what ha- given to the 
University of North Carolina her national standing. 

"This fact puts upon the University a. magnificent 
responsibility to the people. For not only should the 
people study their University and get a full knowledge 
of it; but the University, created ami sustained by the 
people to serve them, should make it its business to 
know them — to have full knowledge of them and of 
their present and their permanent needs. 

"This obvious truth was never more potently true 
in the history of the State, and in the history of the 
University than at this pregnant hour of national and 
State development. It is difficult to overstate the 
promise of our immediate future in material expan- 
sion. To attempt to state it is trite and commonplace. 
Incomparably great things lie ahead of us, calling for 
men — business men and professional men — equipped 
to manage on a great scale our great enterprizes, the 
oncoming product of the liberated effort of a great 
people in a richly endowed State. It is the world-old. 
inevitable, ultimate plea of ; ous democracy, 

.admitting that there is no hope for permanent progress 
except in skilled hands, and minds emancipated 
through the highest leadership. North Carolina is go- 
ing into "big business." and her government and her 
culture are not going to escape the problems and op-

"It is to answer every appeal of the State for the

and endures. ( )ur people should never forget that 
before any practical service of a genuine sort can be 
rendered, that their college must not compromise pure 
learning, sound scholarship, and devoted research. 
That without devotion to learning, for its own sake, 
there can be no learning for any true sake whatever : 
that there is no Pasteur, no Flexner, no Stiles ; that 
there is no cure for hog cholera or boll weevil ; no Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin or Ohio Constitutional Conven- 
tion ; no independence of thinking, nor breadth, nor 



method of thinking without pure scholarship, without 
"impractical" research. On the other hand, and just 
as emphatically, the college must recognize that it 
must chart its course in the stream on whose bosom 
it plies its traffic, spread broad sails of sympathy and 
service, limit its activities to no exclusive interest in 
protected academic coves; but be impelled and in- 
spired always by the "robuster tone" thai stirs in the 
life of the people. 

"At such a time as this, among such a people, the

a product of our liberated life, our liberated work 
and ideas, national men in all fields of endeavor — 
national men of whom a great commonwealth shall be 
greatly proud. 

"We will not let the confusion nor the humiliation 
of the moment dim the vision of what she truly is; nor 
daunt our courage to make her what she should be: 
nor shake our triumphant faith in the eternal idea for 
which she stands !"

THE HIGH SCHOOL 

The Literary Societies Plan a State-Wide 

A movement of state-wide concern and of peculiar 

interest to all the secondary schools of North Caro- 
lina assumed definite shape at the University late in 
Octi which it is proposed to stimulate among 

the secondary schools of the State greater interest in 
debating, and ally to encourage greater activity 

in inter-school debating. The leaders in the movement 
are C. I-'.. Mcintosh, 'it. of the Durham high school, 
the Philanthropic and Dialectic literary societies of 
the University acting in co-op'eration with Prof. X. 



DEBATING UNION 

Debating Contest For Secondary Schools 

W. Walker, State high school inspector, and Dr. L. 
R. Wilson, librarian of the 1 'ni\ ersity. The organ- 
ization bears the title of '•The High School Debating 
Union of North Carolina," and all State high schools, 
private high schools, and graded schools are eligible 
to membership in the union. In fact, the committee 
in charge of the promotion of the plan has to date 
mailed letters of invitations and regulations governing 
the union to 335 secondary schools of the State. 

The plan of debating as evolved by the two literary

societies is somewhat similar to that of debating 
unions now in operation in the University of Texas 
and the University of Wisconsin. This state-wide 
contest in debate provides for the arrangement of 
schools in groups of three in order to give each school 
an opportunity to debate both sides of any query pro- 
posed by the union. The plan further enables each 
school to debate with two neighboring teams. After 
the various triangles making up the union have dis- 
cussed both sides of the chosen query, those schools 
whose two teams have heen successful in winning both 
the affirmative and negative sides of the query are en- 
titled to send both its teams to the University to 
contest for the State championship. The question will 
then be threshed out in the two society halls and the 
school having the strongest team on the negative side 
and the school having the strongest team on the affirm- 
ative side of the query will contest publicly in 
the University chapel for a handsome cup. The cup 
is named in honor of North Carolina's lamented edu- 
cational leader, Governor Charles B. Aycock. The fit- 
ting title of the cup is the Aycock Memorial Cup, and 
the school winning the final contest at the University 
will have its name inscribed on it, and in case any 
single school should win the cup for two years in 
succession the cup will be its property. 



The committee promoting the plan is composed of 
the following students representing the two literary 
societies: A. A. McKay, of Maxton, chairman; H. R. 
Rankin, of Gastonia, secretary; Horace Sisk, of 
Waco; R. C. Spence, of Kipling; T. E. Story, of 
Blowing Rock, and A. L. Hamilton, of Atlantic. 
The University is represented on the committee by Dr. 
L. R. Wilson and Prof. N. W. Walker, of Chapel 
Hill. The secretary of the committee, working in co- 
operation with the other members, has heen busily en- 
gaged in placing the proposition before all the 
secondary schools and reports favorable responses 
from many sections of the State. Among the ninety 
or more schools that have approved of the plan are: 
Raleigh, Charlotte, Greensboro, Madison, T.enoir, 
Washington, Winston. Pittsboro, Chapel Hill. Morgan- 
ton, Battleboro, Rowland and High Point hisjh schools. 
Other favorable responses are being received from 
the foremost schools of the State, and the plan gives 
promise of being firmly established as an annual affair. 

Specific arrangements have been made by which 
the various teams are to be granted the free use of 
material from the University library in the prepara- 
tion of the debates; and during the contest at the 
University the visitors will be the guests of the two 
societies. 



ATHLETICS 

The Mid-Season Games 



V. P. I. 26, Carolina o 

Carolina's first appearance on a Raleigh gridiron 
since the last Carolina-A. & M. game in 1905 resulted 
in a 26 to o defeat October 27th by the strong team 
from Y. P. I. Though clearly outclassed Carolina 
fought every yard of the way. Burrus' tackle-around- 
tackle plunges, Legge's long accurate passes to 
Hughes, and the machine-like rush of the Virginia 
team was too powerful for Carolina's defense. In the 
sixty minutes of play the Tar Heel eleven was bat- 
tered up and down the chalk marks for four touch- 
downs. 

Carolina showed aggressive class toward the close 
of the second quarter but time was called as Tillett 



was downed on \ . I'. I.'s 4-yard line. The little cap- 
tain was the outstanding player of the game. His 
tackling was unerring, his end skirls were startling, 
and bis return of punts was a material factor in keep 
ing the score down. Abernathv was also in greal 
form. The big tackle often beat the ends down on 
punts. 

Three hundred students went down to back the 
team and, though without the seats for unified group- 
ing, san,L, r and cheered under the leadership of Chief 
Cheerer Walter Stokes till the last rush. The A. & M. 
students were present with a vim for Carolina. An

THE RICHMOND GAME 
Virginia Overwhelms Carolina 66-0 



When several weeks ago a troop of husky athletes 
trooped out from their quarters at Virginia Military 
Institute and defeated Virginia 20 to o, right there was 
Carolina's largest defeat in the history of her games 
with Virginia plotted. And never was execution more 
neatly executed than on Thanksgiving day when Caro- 
lina lost to Virginia by a score of 66 to o. 

Virginia was as amazed at the pigmy power opposed 
to her as were the faithful Carolina followers who 
shivered across a field of snow and slush in sympathy 
with the numbed athletes vainly struggling on a sicken- 
ingly wet gridiron. From the first it was ordained that 
Carolina was beaten, was hopelessly outclassed, and 
only in the first quarter was hope stretched out to the 
ever-loyal sidelines. 

Only the vision of Tillett stopping surely and pluck- 
ily many a Virginia man who swept aside Carolina's 
heavy line and dodged her rooted backs will remain in 
the glories of a sad-spent day among those who wit- 
nessed the slaughter. Ten more Tillet-like players 
would have completed a team the equal of that of 1005. 
the year graven deepest in the memories of young 



alumni. Tillett made practically the only gains of the 
White and Blue, the only long run (fifteen yards) and 
prevented what might have been, but for him, a 100 to 
o score. 

As for Virginia, all the sting that was driven in by 
the defeat of V. ]\I. I. came out in venom against a 
rival, whose defeat by so wide a margin could atone 
for the slip of the early season. ( )nlv by the magnitude 
of the score would such a defeat be wiped out, and Vir- 
ginia played as fiercely as though the baled V. M. I.'s 
were there to allow revenge. It is not the first defeat 
Carolina has met. but perhaps Carolina never faced 
more venomous vicarious wrath. 

The advantage to the weaker team of a slow field 
was never in evidence. Carolina's weighl never anch- 
ored. Virginia's progress was as sure at one time as 
another — never more aggressive than on short line 
gains that moved like clockwork to downs. An 01 
sional fumble, smeared forward passes and generally 
clumsy handling of a soggy ball were the only errors 
of the victors. Their team work equalled their indiv- 
idual strength. Carolina's team work was negligible. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



The eleventh-hour attempts to infuse new coaching 
blood did not show in the finished product. 

The Carolina team shifted desperately in the fare of 
every kind of successful football, but the bad only 
moved to worse as the game progressed. Subs did not 
help, neither did Tillett's shift from quarter to the 
backfield with Smith at quarter, except possibly that 
Tillett was in better position to stop the < >range and 
I '.hie warrior.-, that broke through the preliminary 
obstacles. \ irginia played the last quarter with a team 
composed largely of senilis, and then there was no 
appreciable difference in the result. 

The overwhelming nature of the defeat is appre- 

ted more by the fact that Carolina made but one 
first down in the entire game, while Virginia made 
first down twenty-live times. Virginia gained a total 
of 386 yards from scrimmage; Carolina gained but 
Si. \ irginia punted a total of 267 yards, Carolina a 
total of 488. Carolina never held Virginia for downs 
when the White and Blue line was threatened. Vir- 
ginia held on her three-yard line, the only time Caro- 
lina had the barest chance to score. 

This was in the first quarter when, after Smith h:-..' 
plunged through Carolina's line for the first touch- 
down of the game, Carolina received the ball on a punt 
on Virginia's twenty-five yard line. Tillett swung 
around right end for Carolina's only long run of the 
game, fifteen yards. The loss by a fumble the next 
moment was retrieved by a Virginia penalty for being 
ottside. .Moore made two yards and Tillett four, but 
.Moore failed to gain the three more needed for a 
touchdown. There ended Carolina's chances. 

Carolina tried only three forward passes during 
the game, neither of which was successful. Virginia 
completed four for a total gain of sixty-eight yards. 
Nine failed to materialize. Virginia lost sixty-five yards 
on penalties, Carolina twenty-five. 

Carolina showed no power of successful attack 
' nst ;i team Juki's caliber. Her plays were 

stopped in short order, while Virginia rarely failed to 
gain on each play. Carolina's backs seemed to o 



stitute her main defense, and Tillett shone almost alone 

in this.

Carolina Defeats Trinity at Tennis 

Carolina defeated Trinity College in tennis on 
November 15. Malcolm ( >ates and Lenoir Chambers, 
representing the University, won from N. I. White 
and A. R. Anderson, respectively, of Trinity, in 
singles. The doubles were called on account of dark- 
ness when the score was tied. By virtue of winning 
both matches in singles, however, Carolina won the 
meet. ( )atcs won from White, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, and 
Chambers from Anderson, (1-4, 7-5. In doubles Caro- 
lina took the first two sets, 7 5, 6-3. Trinity, bj steady 
playing, won the next two, 6-1, J-^,. The deciding set 
was bitterly fought. At five games all the match was 
called by mutual agreement as it was too dark to play. 

Tennis has Ibis fall continued to bold its popular 
position. The Tennis Association is probably the 
healthiest organization in the University and shows 
annually an encouraging profit. ( her ninety students 
are members, and in good weather the courts back

Till-: UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 
This corner of The Review shall be reserved for 
informing the alumni, as well as the University and 
incidentally the larger public, of the productive work 
of University of North Carolina men. The University 
genuinely and unmeasuredly proud of the contribu- 
tions to all branches of knowledge and polite learning 
which are continually being made by its alumni. It 
welcomes the opportunity, created by The Review, 
give adequate notice of such reputable and honor- 
able achievement. Hitherto there has been no Uni- 
versity publication or medium adapted to such a pur- 
pose. The Record has fulfilled the function implied 
in its title; but considerations of policy and limitations 
of space restricted its account of the productive and 
creative work of University men to the barest men- 
tion. The opportunity afforded by The Review is 
thus a welcome and valued one. Informality shall be 
its note : nd henceforth. This is not a column 

of book-reviews or a literary news-letter. Account of 
University activities may take the form of reviews 
of books, by the editor of this column; cuttings from 
publications reviewing the work ,'ersity men; 

quotations of memorable passages from works written 



b) alumni; informal chat and discussion of men and 
women, of causes and issues falling within the scope 

of this column. 

The alumni themselves are earnestly requested to 
send to the editor of this column all material and in- 
formation bearing on the publications of alumni. 
Only through the co-operation of the alumni in this 
way will the editor be enabled to discover, and to do 
justice to, the vast mass of splendid accomplishment 
bv the alumni of this University. 



Herman Harrell Home, '95, now Professor of the 
History of Education and the History of Philosophy at 
New York University, widely known in educational 
and philosophical circles for such important publica- 
tions as The Philosophy of Education, The Psycho- 
logical Principles of Education, and Idealism in Edu- 
cation, has recently made a contribution to philosophy 
through his publishers, the Macmillan Co., of Free 
Will and Human ResponsiUity. The oldest, as well 
as the freshest, of all problems is the question of the 
extent to which man is master of his own destiny. 
To attacking this problem, the author has devoted 
himself in a work which is as fascinating to the lay- 
man as it is suggestive and stimulating to the student. 
The work is unique in its devotion to the study of a 
single theme, which is looked at from every con- 
ceivable side and illuminated witli the light of the 
most advanced thought of our own era. The argu- 
ments for either side, for free will and for deter- 
minism, are presented with scientific impartiality 
truly laudable. But it must be confessed that there is 
something peculiarly inspiriting in the elan with which 
Dr. Home jousts in behalf of the optimist doctrine 
of free will. Says he. in his resume of the issue from 
the historical side : 

"Determinism has been the waning orthodoxy and 
freedom the waning heresy. The conflict has been 
long and hard and it- end i- not vet. The old order of 
things still would crush the new and the new order 
of things still would modify or annihilate the old. 
Determinism represents the finite crust and shell of 
social habit; freedom the infinite returning spring of 
the eternal life. Determinism is the check man would 
put on God's course in the world; freedom is the 
progress God intends for man in the world. We can- 
not dispense with some amount of determinism, to do 
which were chaos; nor with some degree of freedom, 
to do which were stagnation. As a philosophy of life 
determinism has this disadvantage, viz., that it has 
room for no freedom at all ; whereas, on the other

hand, freedom has this advantage, vis., that it does 
have room for much determinism. For determinism 
holds that all acts are determined, while freedom holds 
only that some acts are free." 



An exceedingly scholarly and valuable book is Hiyh 
School Education (Chas. Scribner's Sons), edited by 
Charles Hughes Johnston '98, Dean of the School 
of Education of the University of Kansas. This is a 
promising work in the field, constituting a scientific 
survey of the problems of the contemporary high 
school. It contains a wealth of materials, the chapters 
being written by experts from every section of the 
country. The first two chapters, Current Demands 
Upon the Programme of Studies, and The Discip- 
linary Basis of Courses of Study are by Dr. Johnston ; 
whilst the chapter on Chemistry is the work of Dr. 
J. E. Mills, formerly associate professor of chemistry 
at this institution. 

The most impressive feature of the work, which 
is not only an analysis of present conditions but a 
study for classes in education, is the attention every- 
where directed to the state of flux in educational 
theories. In the face of insistent demands for free- 
dom. Dr. Johnston accentuates the need for the discip- 
linary basis of courses of study. In his view, the 
choice of studies should be conditioned upon their dis- 
ciplinary effects, as well as upon the immediate social 
use and advantage they possess. 



An unusually successful accomplishment is The 
Life and Speeches of Charles B. Aycock (Doubleday, 
Page & Co.), written and collated by R. D. W. 
Connor ('99), and Mr. Clarence H. Poe. In this 
book, the authors have erected a permanent monu- 
ment to a notable public character, who embodied the 
significance of the era in the State and in the South, 
through which we are now triumphantly passing. 
Had they not written this book just when they did, the 
wealth of material — reminiscence, personalia, anec- 
dotes — which they have now put together would, in 
great measure, have been lost — or rather would never 
have found expression save in oral and so, perishable, 
form. 

At the University of North Carolina, this educa- 
tional statesman "caught the vision of an old Com- 
monwealth remade and revivified through universal 
education, and he went forth from the University 



pledged to give to that cause the services of his life." 
And elsewhere we read, "The true 'University man' 
understands this, and accepts his education at her 
bands knowing that, if he be true to her teaching, 
he is under the highest sort of obligation to use the 
increased power which he receives through her train- 
ing, not for his own advancement, but for the g 1 

of the Commonwealth." 

It is indeed a welcome and a gratifying reflection 
that such services to the Commonwealth as those of 
Aycock have not been forgotten or ignored. It i-- a 
source of gratification to all alumni to realize, through 
Aycock, that the new University is training nun into 
great leadership and the high obligations of public 
office. The most striking feature of this excellent 
book is that, even to one who never saw or heard 
Aycock, this book will certainly abundantly show 
cause for the remarkable measure of affection and 
confidence which Aycock attained as a great popular 
leader. A. I 1. 



The New Dormitories 

In developing the plan for new dormitories the 
Trustees have purchased the old Pickard's Hotel or 
Lniversity Inn (formerly Watson's Hotel 1 ami the 
Central Hotel property — that is the property on both 
sides of the front entrance to the campus. The dor- 
mitories will thus front on the main street and line 
both sides of the entry to the campus. Eventually 
there will be one or more sections fronting upon the 
street and three on either side of the campus. The 
dormitories are designed in sections so that sections 
may be erected as the means become available. It is 
not possible to secure the funds to carr) out the plan 
all at once nor is the full capacity of such dormitories 
demanded by the needs of the University at present. 

The style of the building is known as college 
gothic and is quite generally adopted now by colleges 

for their dormitories. The architect was instructed 
to model them as nearly as possible after those at the 
University of Pennsylvania. 

Three sections, of which a picture is given on the 
front cover, have been built — one facing the street and 
two along the campus. Space is left for the third 
lion on the campus. These are placed on the ground 
where the old Central Hotel Stood for many years.

Recent Faculty Regulatons 
The Faculty, during October, passed the following 
regulations : 

1. That the requirement (p. 125 of the Catalogue) 
that even member of the senior class be required to 
write a thesis for graduation, be abolished and that 
the question of theses be left to courses in which the 
writing of theses is a condition of passing the course. 

2. That the regulation that "freshmen, sophomores, 
and juniors who have received the grade five in any 
subject will be given two and only two opportunities to 
make good the deficiency by special examination" be 
changed to read: "Will be given one and only one op- 
portunity to make good the deficiency by special 
examination." 

3. That no freshman who fails to pass at least six 
hours and no sophomore who fails to pass at least 
nine hours will he readmitted to the college the follow- 
ing year except by special permission of the Faculty 
or by a delegated committee. 

4. That the words "for five months - ' in section four

The Southern Plans New Depots at Chapel Hill and Univer- 
sity 

According to plans filed by H. E. Hutchings, super- 
intendent of the Greensboro division, with the Cor- 
poration Commission, at Raleigh, on November 8th, 
a depot costing $7,500 is soon to he erected by the 
Southern Railway Company at Chapel Hill. The 
station will replace the small two-room outgrown 
makeshift that has stood in the village for many years. 
Press notices also state that the Southern is ready to 
hegin work on a new depot at University Station, the 
huilding to be even more expensive than the one at 
Chapel Hill. In so far as the two proposed huildings 
will add to the comfort of passengers their erection is 
to he hailed with delight. A notice from the Southern 
which would bring even greater satisfaction to the 
community would he that trains from Chapel Hill 
would run through University to Durham. That 
would give the University a better schedule and would 
help hreak down the isolation from which it now 
greatly suffers. 



The Election on the Campus 

Taking up matters where they were left off last 
Spring after the straw vote for presidential candidates 
for nomination by the respective parties, the student 
hody lent itself unreservedly to the study and discus- 
sion of the political situation during the campaign. 

Fairly early in the term the Wilson Club was gotten 
under way and held several very enthusiastic meetings 
culminating in the mass meeting and big bonfire on the 
night of "Wilson Day" in the colleges. Slightly later 
the Progressives and Taftites formed their clubs, and 
from the time they entered the field until 3 130 a. m. of 
the morning after the election they stuck to their colors 
and fought for them bravely. The most interesting 
situation arising out of the rivalry between the Wilson 
and Progressive clubs was precipitated by a joint meet- 
ing on Friday night preceding the election when four 
hundred students gathered in the chapel to hear s\ 
representatives from the opposing camps "present the 
issues." The Wilson supporters were represented by 
John Calhoun P.ushv, John T. Johnston, and John W. 



Hester; the Progressives, by P. II. Gwyn, T. J. 
Hoover, and \\ . ('.. Harry. 'Die "issues" w< 
splendidly presented, to judge from the applause of 
the audience, and the meeting goes down in the history 
of remarkable student hody performances. 

On Tuesday night, under the direction of the Ath- 
letic Association, telegraphic reports were thrown 
upon a screen in the chapel, and the students and vil- 
lagers alike crowded the huilding to over-flowing to see 
and hear the returns. The best of spirit prevailed and 

the varying reports brought forth some rousing g 1 

cheering. 



The Archibald DeBow Murphey Club 

Taking its name from Archibald DeBow Murphey, 

of the class of 1799, one of the University's first and 
most notable graduates, whose plans for a complete 
system of education in North Carolina entitle him 
to be styled the father of public education in the 
State, the Archibald DeBow Murphey Club, composed 
of members of the Department of Education, organ 
ized and began work in the University on Wednesday 
night, November 6th. 

Prof. M. C. S. Noble announced that the object 
of the club were: 

1. To bring together once a month all students in 
the University who are interested in the cause of p 
ular education. 

2. To study and discuss any past or present educa- 
tional problems and conditions in North Carolina, and 
to stimulate and further a public educational spirit 
among the students of the University. 

3. To interest every member of the University 
community in the cause of public education at public 
expense. 

4. To study the needs of the public elementary 
schools and the public high schools of North Carolina 
and to build up among the students an abiding desire 
to labor for the strengthening and hearty support of 
the public school system of the State nol only while 
the) are students in the University hut after they 
shall have begun their service as citizens.

President Alderman Outlines the Purpose of the Modern 
University 

1 From the University Record, June 1912) 

The task of a great University, within its own walls 
particularly, is to set standards and to make men. If 
i! is ever generally believed that Universities are only 
valuable in proportion as they help a man in the practi- 
cal struggle for a living, the Universities will change 
their nature and our civilization will become only an 
elaborate organized barbarism. Universities rose into 
being and nourished into splendor, when one reflects at 

rout df the matter, because their business was to 
help in the struggle for a living the world in its efforts 
to arise above the struggle for a living. But all of this 
is perfectly consistent with my belief that the type 
University of the twentieth century will be the one 
which draws near the people in creative helpfulness. 
\o cry for guidance in its complex development should 

le out of any State which is not met with immediate 
answer by its Stale University or its group of higher 
icational agencies. If a State comes to the conclu- 
sion that its public health must be conserved, or its 
roads improved, or its economic resources developed, 
or i s mines exploited, or its lands better tilled, it has a 

feet righl to turn to the University for help and 
direction. ne decades neither the University 

nor the State really knew, much less understood or 
appreciated, each other. The University is to become 
the great sp< ,. 1 , ct me not be under- 

utility as opposed to the 
a of idealism ov< ncient citadels of the 

spirit. Their id, r as everj 1)ut wj( | er 

and more prophetic, for it ha 1 beyond the indi- 

vidual and perceives the unity of society. 



A Conference in Reading 

Under the leadership of Dean Graham, between 
forty and fifty men have recently been united in a 
more or less systematic course or conference in read- 
ing. The idea back of the movement is that college 
men frequently fail to read during their college days 
simply because they do not have pointed out to them 
the kind of books they should read. In keeping with 
this idea, Dean Graham has listed some seventy odd 
books including biography, political studies, essays, 
and fiction, from which students may make selections 
when they wish to read but do not know exactly what 
they want. The list is posted in the library, and in 
some instances more than one copy of the books have 
keen provided. Upon the request of a student lists 
will be supplied on special topics. 

Dean Graham is being assisted in the work by a 
faculty committee composed of Drs. Archibald Hen- 
derson, J. G. deR. Hamilton, J. F. Royster, J. M. 
Booker, C. L. Raper, L. 1\. Wilson, T. P. Cross, and 
Professors Horace Williams, ('.. M. McKie, and G. M. 
Sneath. 



Athletic Council Changes Awarding of N. C's. 

At a meeting of the Athletic Council Tuesday night. 
November 12th, the date was set for the election of 
football manager and assistants for next year, and 
rules were formulated governing the awarding of the 
right to wear X. C. monograms. Saturday, December 
14. was set as the date for the election of the foot- 
ball managers. 

The following resolutions were passed governing 
the awarding of the right to wear X. C. monograms: 

1. That the Athletic Council shall retain supreme 
power in the awarding of X. C's. 

2. That in baseball, football, basketball, and track 
the method of awarding by the Council shall be upon 
the recommendation of the Coach of the team, the 
Captain of the team, and the Athletic Director. 

3. That in tennis the Tennis Association shall have 
the power to award X. C's. to the members of tin 
Varsity tennis team, subject to the approval of the 
Athletic Council. 

4- That in gymnastics the method of awarding by 
the Council shall be upon the recommendation by the

AROUND THE CAMPUS AND TOWN 

The first meeting for this year of the Chemical Journal Club 
was held in Chemistry Hall at 7:30 Monday night, October 
14. Dr. Herty was in charge, and gave a very interesting 
account of this fall's meeting of the 18th International Con- 
gress of Applied Science at Washington and New York. His 
account was illustrated with a display of souvenirs and also 
of lantern slides showing some of the more noted scientists 
who attended the Congress. Dr. Herty's account was followed 
by the presentation of brief resumes by Mr. W. L. Jeffreys 
and B. H. Knight of two of the more noteworthy papers 
presented before the Congress. 

The first application for membership in the High School 
Debating Union comes from the Battleboro High School. 
Prof. L. L. Hargrave writes : "Your communication relative 
to the Debating Union was received and taken up by the 
Kemp P. Battle Literary Society at a called meeting this 
morning. Our boys are enthusiastic in their endorsement of 
your plan and we are pleased to be able to accept your prop- 
osition and we are losing no time in notifying you of our 
acceptance." 

A triangular debate has been arranged by the Societies with 
Virginia and Johns Hopkins. A novel feature provided for in 
the agreement is that all of the debates will be held on neutral 
ground. Carolina will debate Virginia at Baltimore and Johns 
Hopkins at Charlottesville, and Johns Hopkins and Virginia 
will contest with each other at Chapel Hill. The judges of the 
debates will be five instead of three and they will be chosen 
from, or by, the faculties of the University at which the various 
debates are to be held. 

The freshman football team, captained by Craig, of Ashe- 
ville, won from Warrenton on Warrenton's home grounds, by 
the score of 22 to o. 

Sixty-five men, an unprecedented number, recently answered 
the call for the reorganization of the dramatic club on an 
entirely different and much broader basis. The new officers 
are : A. L. M. Wiggins, president ; T. M. Ramsaur, secretary ; 
Arnold McKay, treasurer; Dr. J. M. Booker, chairman of the 
faculty committee. 

The Historical Society met Monday night, October 7, at 7:30 
o'clock in Chemistry Hall, for the purpose of organizing for 
the year. The following officers were elected: Dr. J. 0. de R. 
Hamilton, president; Prof. M. C. S. Noble, vice-president; 
E. M. Coulter, recording secretary. The Society meets 
regularly the second Monday night in each month. At the 
November meeting papers were presented by Professors Noble 
and Walker. 

L. P. McLendon was appointed by the athletic council 
as manager of the football team in place of 1'.. M. Mebane, 
resigned. McLendon graduated from A. & M. in 1010. lie 
was manager of the 1909 football team at A. & M., and 
has therefore had much valuable experience. He came to 
the University to study law in the Fall of 1910, passed the 



State board last February, and is now practising law in Chapel 
Mill and taking work in college. lie is a member of the

Professors J. M. Bell, Kent J. Brown, (). Towles, J. M. 
Booker. J. F. Royster and J. P'. Cross, and about three linn 
dred students attended the Y. P. I. game in Raleigh. The 
cheering at the game, which was led by Walter Stokes and 
Frank Graham, was quite a noticeable improvement upon 
previous cheering here. 

The first University preacher for the year was Rev. George 
W. Lay, Rector of St. Mary's School, Raleigh. His serin. .11 
on the "Solidarity of Truth" was preached in Gerard Hall on 
Sunday morning, October 20th, and was heard by all the 
college community. 

Ground has been broken for the erection of the new Kappa 
Sigma Hall. It will be between the Zeta Psi and Pi Kappa 
Alpa houses. The building will be unusually attractive and 
will add much to the appearance of the campus around the 
fraternity houses.

track men in order to stimulate interest in fall training and 
more particularly to start practice for the cross country run 
with A. & M. in December. The time was 4:58 3-5. 

The growing usefulness of the L T niversity library was 
demonstrated the last week in October by the demands made 
upon it by schools and individuals outside of Chapel Hill. 
A debating team from Elon College was admitted to the 
periodical resources of the library and material was furnished 
to the office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, the 
State Normal College, Mars Hill College, Weavcrville Col 
l< ge. Wake Forest College, and individuals at Greens Creek,

WHAT OTHER COLLEGES ARE DOING 

The announcement has been made within the past few weeks 
that Mrs. George D. Widener, of Philadelphia, will build a 
library building at Harvard University as a memorial to her 
son, Harry Klkins Widener, '07, of Harvard, who went down 
on the Titanic in April. The building is to provide for 2,500,000 
volumes, and it will be much the largest and most imposing 
building in the Harvard yard. In addition to the building, 
Mrs. Widener pi' convey to the University the 

special collection of English literature which her son bad 
spent the time between his graduation and death in collecting. 
The collection is by far the most valuable the University has 
ever received and adds immeasurably to its distinction as well 

eover the books are of the 
sort which a univi n own only through the generosity 

of its friends.

studying practical means of helping members of the graduat- 
ing class and the alumni of the last decade to successful posi- 
tions in husiness and the different professions. This work 
centers in the bureau of appointments, of which \V. F. Bohn, 
secretary to President Henry C. King, is director. The bureau 
cooperated with the College Young Men's Christian Associa- 
tion. Ninety-nine persons received appointments through the 
cooperation of the College. With the exception of thirteen, 
these were members of the recent graduating class. The 
aggregate of salaries received was $69,910, and the amount 
of remuneration varied from $50 (a Woods Hole summer 
scholarship) to $1,500, the maximum salary received by any 
appointee. The total number assisted in any way for the year 
just closed was 161 as against 143 for 1910-11. 

The annual report to the stockholders of the Harvard Co- 
operative Society shows a total business for the year of 
$392,621.19, an increase over the preceding year of $14,451. 
The gross profits for the year amounted to $79,421.38, or 21. 1 
per cent, of the total sales. To this is added $2,844 from 
membership fees, and $2,095 from miscellaneous sources, mak- 
ing the gross income for the year $84,360.38. After payment 
of operating expenses and provision for reserves, including 
an addition of $5,000 to the building fund, $20,157.24 is avail- 
able for dividends. The stockholders have voted to pay a 
dividend of 9 per cent, on purchases made last year. Mem- 
bership increased during the year from 2,754 to 2 >844- The 
Society has now concluded its thirtieth year of business. 

The New York State College of Forestry, at Syracuse 
University, designated and established by the Legislature for 
educational work in forestry in New York, has sent a letter 
to the principals of all the High and Preparatory Schools of 
the State offering to give illustrated lectures and demonstra- 
tions upon forestry before the schools. It is planned to take 
up this work with the schools of the State by counties and 
thus offer these lectures and demonstrations at no cost to the 
schools except that the schools will furnish a meeting place 
and give the lectures thorough advertising in the community. 
During the spring months the College will send out a lecturer 
to give practical demonstrations of tree-planting. 

In connection with the extension work of the University of 
Wisconsin it is interesting to note that as many students are 
now studying by means of correspondence study courses as 
are enrolled in the regular classes of the University. A 
total of 275 formal courses in thirty different departments are 
offered. To facilitate the wink (if the division, branch sta- 
tions have been established at < tshkosh, LaCrosse, Mil- 
waukee, Superior, and Wausau. Thus many people are 
reached who otherwise would be too far removed to come 
into close touch with the extension work. 

President Hyde of Bowdoin, speaking at the inauguration 
of President Meiklejohn at Amherst, says the latest move at 
his college has been to "found and finance a Bowdoin Club, as 
nearly like a fraternity as possible, open to every student, tli.it 
all may have the immense moral support that comes from 
intimate group life and responsibility of older for younger 
and weaker men."

friendship, such as generally exist among the stu- 

i institution, prevailed rendering the occasion 

a harmonious and altogether delightful event. 

Mr. Mat 11. Allen, presiding at the festive board, made an 

and pleasing toastmaster, and his introductory remarks 

in presenting to the diners the guest of honor were an enthu-

the evening.

withal simple and direct in his manner, Mr. Graham

To the Alumni Editor: 

Your letter relati ir local association and the banquet 

which we gave a feu days ago received. I am enclosing the 
account of it as given by the local paper. 

I can say in addition that we had a great time, and that 
the banquet and Mr. Graham's speech did much to bring 
the University nearer to the alumni in this country than it 
has been in years. I am glad that we had the feast of good 
things to satisfy both stomach and mind; and I feel 
that the other alumni in this county are more interested in 
the University today than before the banquet. 

With best wishes and assurance that I shall be glad to do 
all I can to help, I am, 

Yours truly,

ROCKY MOUNT 

Thursday night, October 31, the Rocky Mount Alumni 
Association of the University of North Carolina held as their 
Halloween party their first alumni banquet in the Railroad 
Y. M. C. A., Rocky Mount, N. C. That it was a success 
was due not only to the efforts of the committee, but 
also to the speakers of the occasion. 

The only business engaged in was the election of officers 
for the ensuing year, the old officers being reelected by 
unanimous vote. These are J. B. Ramsey, president; J. S. 
Lewis, vice-president; R. M. Wilson, secretary-treasurer. 
Twelve new members were added to the roll of the associa- 
tion. 

The first speaker ably filled the position of toast master. 
Mr. John L. Harris had as his subject "The University and 
Public Education." lie spoke of the important part the uni- 
versity man has played in religious, social, and political life, 
but the most important has been done in the field of educa- 
tion. 

"Rocky Mount and the University Man'' was the subject 
of an able talk by Mr. Francis E. Winslow. He laid down 
clearly and forcibly the principle that the university man has 
received from his parents, from his community, from his 
State, an education for which he owes something in return, 
and through which he has entrusted to him certain duties. 
As applied to the community it is the duty of university 
alumni of Rocky Mount to mould as far as possible public 
opinion to the end of securing the best things for Rocky 
Mount. 

Mr, Thos. H. Battle spoke extemporaneously on the duty 
of an alumnus to his alma mater. 

The principal address of the evening was delivered by Mr. 
Edward K. Graham, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts of 
tl e University. His speech was quiet, simple, straightforward, 
s rong, and beautiful. It was a heart to heart talk by the 
man on the inside to the man on the outside concerning 
tl ings at Chapel Hill. 

Mr. Graham spoke in high praise of the general character 
and behavior of the students of the university; that on the 
whole they were obedient to law, earnest and thoroughly 
representative of the people of North Carolina. He made a 
strong defense of student self-government : Young men 
should be given the chance to govern themselves; limit this 
chance, and you limit their development; the students them- 
selves recognize their failures in self-government and with help 
learn to correct these and build a more perfect system. He 
made a plea for fair judgment of colleges, that this judgment 
should not be based on sentiment and incidental information, 
but on a more thorough inside knowledge of actual facts, 
conditions, and aims. So judged the alumni and the State have 
good grounds to be proud of their university. It was the 
first college of three in the South to have a chapter in the 
National Scholarship Fraternity, the Thi Beta Kappa ; it is 
the only college in the South having membership in the 
National Debating Fraternity, the Tan Kappa Alpha. In the 
report of Dr. Babcock, an expert appointed by the National 
Education Commission to investigate the standing of colleges 
and universities in the United States, such educational insti- 
tutions are arranged in five divisions and three groups; in 
the Southern Division the University of North Carolina is 



rated in the first group (Group A), with two other univer- 
sities—the University of Virginia for her strong professional 
schools, Vanderbilt University for her splendid equipment, 
and the University of North Carolina for thoroughness of 
,work done in undergraduate departments. These are a few 
of the actual farts and conditions Mr. Graham dwelt on, and 
should be a part of the general knowledge had of the Uni- 
versity by the alumni and State at large. 

Following Mr. Graham's speech, a message of loyalty was 
proposed by Mr. M. V. Barnhill and by a unanimous vote Mr. 
Graham was asked to e.xpress the loyalty of the local . 
ciation to the administration. 

Immediately following, Mr. I,. V. Basse! made a brief, 
forcible talk. Those present were: Mr. lv K. Graham, 
of Chapel Mill; Messrs. Jos. B. Ramsey, John 1,. Harris, F. E. 
Winslow, R. S. Gorham, I. W. Rose, 1. 1'. Battle, J. C. 
Braswell, L. V. Basset, M. V. Barnhill, Thus. II. Battle, 
R. M. Wilson, J. J. Wells, R. T. Fountain, J. S. P. Fenner,

Minutes of last meeting ; "The Relation of the State to the 
University," Mr. Joe Carter; Reminiscences, lion. A. II. 
Merritt, and others; Informal Talks; Parting Song, "I'm a 
Tar Heel Bred"; Yells. 

A short letter of regrets was read from Mr. J. I'', llendreii, 
who is a loyal alumnus of the University. 

Mr. Carter's talk was an instructive one, giving a com 
parison of our university with other state universities, show- 
ing the fields of usefulness for stale institutions and denomi- 
1 1. 1 ional schools to be distinct — a great work for each to 
and that the State, having established the university, not 
only owns the institution, bul reaps the benefits obtained 
through the university by her people; the State should there- 
fore be generous to her child (the university), so that her 
work may become greater and greater for the people of our 
State. 

The reminiscences of Mr. A. 11. Merritt carried us hack- 
to the days of Dr. Mitchell and Gov, Swain and their asso- 
ciates; he told some amusing, as well as some touching inci- 
dents of those great men. There were interesting talks On 
hazing and athletics b) nearly every member present. The 
program for the University Day celebration, held October 
12, at 10:00 a. in., was as follows:

OBITUARIES 

1853 
ALFRED MOORE WADDELL 

Col. Alfred Moore Waddell, for many years a trustee of 
the University and one of the most distinguished citizens 
of the State, died at his home in Wilmington on March 
18th, 1912. 

Col. Waddell was born at Hillsboro, September 16th, 
1S34, and was in the Tsth year of his age at the time of 
his death. He spent three years at the University, re- 
ceiving the degree of A.M. in L853. He was awarded the 
LL.D. degree by the University in L895. 

Col. Waddell was not only well known as a lawyer 
and statesman, but as an editor and author. He was 
editor of the Wilmington Herald in 1860 and The Char- 
lotte Journal-Observer in 1nni-2. Ho was author of "A 
Colonial Officer and His Times. 1754-'73," "A History of 
New Hanover County and the Lower Cape Fear Region," 
"Some Memoirs of .My Life," and delivered many notable 
addresses. Of these the two which were given greatest 
publicity in print were "The Life and Character of Wil- 
liam L. Saunders," and "General Francis Nash." 

Probably no man of his time had a more prominent part 
in the affairs of the Cape Fear section, and he always took 
a leading part in polities. He was a delegate to the con- 
servative convention of 1S60, which nominated John Bell 
for President. He was a member of Congress from 1871 
to 1S79; Elector-at-large on the Democratic ticket 1888; 
and Delegate-at-large to the Cincinnati, lssit, and Chicago,

Lieutenant Colonel of the Third North Carolina Cavalry, 
C. S. A., and was Mayor of Wilmington for three terms. 

The funeral of Col. Waddell was held on Tuesday, 
the 19th of March. He was married three times and is 
survived by his third wife and two children by the first 
union. Miss Elizabeth Waddell, of Wilmington, and A. M. 
Waddell, Jr., of Norfolk, Va. 

1885 
JAMES RANDLETT MONROE 
The many friends in North Carolina of Prof. James 
Randlett Monroe, will regret to learn that he died in Brook- 
lyn, N. Y., on the morning of the 6th. He had not been 
strong for some time but his death was unexpected and 
came as a shock to his mother and sisters in Fayetteville, 
as it will be to his friends throughout the State. He was a 
native of Fayetteville and graduated at the Cniversity of 
North Carolina, in the class of '85, winning the Greek 
medal. Afterwards, he took a post-graduate course at John 
Hopkins. He taught in Wilmington, Wilson and Asheville, 
X. C, and afterwards in Brooklyn, N. Y, He married Miss 
Ella Brown, of Asheville. X. C, who, with one daughter, 
Margaret Montague, survives him. He is also survived bj 
his mother. Mrs. M. A. Monroe, and two sisters, Mrs. W. 
H. Coffey and .Mrs. \V. II. Hobtis. of Fayetteville. He was 
a talented and gifted North Carolinian and his death will 
be sincerely deplored by a host of friends in the State. —
