The Alumni Review 

Vol. I 

February, 1913 

No. 3 


The Athletic The conference on athletics between 
Conference representatives of the faculty, the 

alumni, and the students, that met 
in Chapel Hill at the call of the faculty committee on 
athletics as set forth on another page, was a most 
notable meeting. In the first place, it led immediately 
to important changes in the management of athletics. 
No single change could be of greater importance at 
present than the selection of a coach. The conference 
committed itself to the system of alumni coaching, and 
to the policy of alumni responsibility for the coaching. 
It declared for the highest type of training for the 
men on the teams, and for a consistent policy from 
year to year. It recognized the need of money, and 
the alumni present agreed to see that additional money 
was raised. The note was repeatedly sounded in the 
meeting that the success of the University in athletics 
was an interest not merely of the immediate University 
community, but of the alumni everywhere, and of the 
whole State. The committee that takes up the work 
of directing athletic affairs assumes, therefore, a 
responsibility that cannot be overestimated. If suc- 
cessfully done, it will not be by blind luck; it will be 
by patient thought and hard work. The committee 
deserves, at the hands of everybody interested in the 
University, loyal support and appreciation. 

Getting On this point of loyalty, and the neces- 
Together sary solidarity of the University group, 
there is sometimes an unfortunate lack 
of faith, largely, we believe, through a lack of under- 
standing. Many alumni feel that the faculty are 
unsympathetic theorists, perhaps even tyrants in deal- 
ing with athletic questions. They feel this particularly 
in the matter of athletic eligibility rules. Tiny are 
perfectly willing to admit that individually the mem 
bers of the eligibility committee are loyal ami sympa 
thetic gentlemen, alumni just as their critics are 
alumni, and as intimately interested and patriotii 
any men could possibly be; but they feel that when 
these faculty men combine into a committee the) 
both their intelligence and patriotism, ami 1' with 

a sort of unholy glee against the success of the coll 

they love. There is a feeling that the athletic rt 
of the University are too stringent, and that the in 
pretation of them is more stringent in spirit than the 
rules are in letter. Nobody has specifically claimed, 
however, that the rules as a whole are more -tringent 
than those of any other reputable University, or that 
they are anything other than the standard amateur 
athletic rules; nor has the charge that the interpn 
tion of them is too severe ever been made t 
definitely to a single case. 

The main difficulty in this important matter of 
ting together on the rules is a question of tl 
The difference of opinion and the failure i.i un 
stand is, in nine cases out of ten, in the facts, and 
a difference in judgment or standards of judgment. 
What is said on the streets, and in the hotels and the 
clubs, in the tense atmosphere of a great athl< 
tie, is always exaggerated, ami often altogether un- 
true. We all recognize this, but lacking any b< 
information we naturally build our conclusions 
hectic talk of the street. The poinl we wish to empha- 
size is this: we could facilitate the understanding ami 
co-operation necessary to our success if 
such as this recent one could he held dice or \\\ 
year. Get together by talking it over! It rarely hap- 
pens that any disagreement remains between the 
faculty and students, or the faculty and alumni al

practical! illege that has played the game 

learned its I lesson, and football h; 

formed it. The 

tots have been eradicated by experi< tin- 



fully acquired, and therefore not easily forgotten. 
College men have learned through football that there 
are no short cuts and shady paths to permanent vic- 
tory. Practical athletics means the practice of high 
standards. The place of honor that the athletes of 
colleges struggle for is denied to the college that adopts 
dishonorable methods of getting men or sharp prac- 
tices in winning games. Not that the converse neces- 
sarily holds: that a college that adopts and sticks to 
high standards always wins games. Something more 
than honesty is necessary to successful practice. But 
no college in this country has any athletic recognition 
whose teams and whose policies and practices do not 
measure up to the highest standards. Teams not rep- 
resentative of the best in college life may flash an 
occasional victory; but the college is a permanent 
thing, and an occasional victory or even a year or two 
of victory does not serve its purpose. Teams come 
and go, but the college stays. The price paid for 
victories falsely won is a weakened patriotism, a 
debauched athletic spirit within, a bankrupt schedule. 
and disrepute among its competitors. One of the 
greatest services that football has performed is to 
teach college men to suppress temptations in the face 
of the fiercest desire; to lead them to see that right 
and might are in the long run the same. It has been a 
hard fight, and the fight is still on, but it has been 
worth the struggle. No chapter in American college 
life is more interesting than the evolution of athletic 


The New Mr. T. C. Trenchard. better known, in 
Coach the familiar terms of affection, as "Dog- 

gie," is now the directing head of ath- 
letics at the University. It is not necessary to ask 
the alumni to give him their loyal support. He is their 
choice, and he is the sort of man that inspires support. 
The intense spirit of an interested fighting man. backed 
by a knowledge of local conditions, and a genuine love 
of the college make him a leader who will be not only 
faithful, but also victorious.

The Bureau In order that the extension work 
of Extension' which the University is now doing, 
through lectures, correspondence, 
publications, and material loaned from the University 
library, may be more thoroughly systematized, that it 
may be further increased, and that the University's 
connection with the State may be made more directly 
helpful, a Bureau of Extension has been formed, and 
is now ready for service. 

"A Professional Library for Teachers in Secondary 
Schools." just from the press, is the first number of a 
series of Extension Bulletins which the Bureau will 
issue. It is prepared by the Department of Education 
of the University and is a carefully annotated list of 
eighty books and journals covering the field of second- 
ary education. Other bulletins are now being planned 
of which one will be devoted to the discussion ot 
municipal problems and will contain a list of books 
dealing with municipal matters of every kind. The 
proceedings of a Rural Life Week, to be held in con- 
nection with the Summer School, will constitute 
another number. This latter, in addition to the pro- 
ceedings, will contain lists of book relating to country 
life in all of its phases; and such books as the Univer- 
sity library has upon these topics, as well as the books 
contained in the "Professional Library," will be loaned 
to inquirers under proper restrictions. This number 
will be widely distributed throughout the State. 

The committee in charge of the work is composed of, 
Professors P. R. Wilson, K. K. Graham. M. IP Stacy. 
X. VV. Walker, A. II. Patterson, and C. P. Raper. The 
suggestion of ways by which the work may be made 
successful locally will be appreciated. 

The President's The report of the President 
Report embracing reports from all tin 

officers of the University (a cop 1 
of which has been sent to all alumni whose presen 
address is known i is just from the press. It recount 
the progress of the year and proclaims the need' 
which confront the Iniversitv. 


The most outstanding evidences of growth are th 
completed medical building and the new dormitories 
The change from the old dissecting hall down in th 
woods behind Commons to Caldwell Hall, and fror 
the Central Hotel to the Vance-Pettigrew-Battl 
dormitories, is fairylike in its seeming unrealit; 
First and second year medical students now have tl 
opportunity to work under ideal conditions, an 
seventy-two men have living quarters which approac 
the reality of simple, genuine home life. 

After thirty-five years of service, which has ben

now teaching in this and other States. In accepting 
the gift of $40,000 from the Peabody Fund Trustees, 
the University obligated itself to spend $10,000 
annually upon the extension of the department's gen- 
eral work. This means better equipment and a larger 
teaching force; and the day of a completely organ- 
ized school of Education, with practice school, exten- 
sion courses, and an increasingly successful summer 
school, seems, through it, to have been brought very 

The Fall registration, the size of the freshman class, 
the increase in the summer school, the number of 
volumes added to the library, the total number of 
graduate students working for the Ph. D. degree, like- 
wise come under the head "the biggest ever." The 
Debating Union, the County Clubs, the Greater Coun- 
cil, and The Review, though unmentioned in the 
report, figure in the new movements which have as 
their purpose the bringing about of the Greater Uni- 

The needs of the University are none the less keen 
by reason of their oft repetition. To mention only 
those outlined by the President, to the exclusion of 
those of the heads of various departments and officers, 
the list is as follows : First and foremost, an increase 
in maintenance from $87,000 to $100,000; $40,000 for 
a modern, adequate dining-hall to take the place of 
Commons, and provide, under University control, for 
the boarding of at least six hundred students ; $60,000 
and $35,000 respectively for physical and geological 
laboratories; $50,000 for a recitation building, to pro- 
vide room for the five or six hundred weekly recita- 
tions which overwhelm the present recitation-room 
capacity of the University and make practically 
impossible the addition of other classes to the schedule ; 
$35,000 and $25,000 each for haw and Pharmacy 
buildings; $75,000 for another group of dormitories; 
$30,000 for the enlargement of the waterworks plant 
which, at present, is entirely without filter-bed and 
settling reservoirs, and which can keep only half a 
day's supply of water ahead; $15,000 for a Practio 
vSchool for the use of prospective teachers; $45,0)00 to 
pay for the purchase of the Central Hotel, the Uni- 
versity Inn, and the Mitchell grant, the interesl on 
which account at present is being paid from the gen- 
eral fund of the University; $25000 for repairs on 
the twenty-odd buildings comprising the I 'nivcrsily 
plant; and $10,000 for enlarging the Chapel so that 

the entire student body may be able (an utter im] 
sibility at present; to meet at one time in a 
auditorium to attend chapel exercises, University lec- 
tures, or any general University meeting. 

The I )j 1: \ting 
Contesi s 


Before another issue of The 
Review appears, the preliminary 

and final contests between si 
in the High School Debating Union, 
launched recently under the auspices of the Dial* 
and Philanthropic Societies, will have been held in 
something over a hundred communities in the State 
and at the Hill. The local contests will be held 
on Friday night, February 21, and the final debate 
the State championship Friday night, .March 7 — just 
two weeks later. 

Xo movement begun in years at the University has 
met with more hearty approval than has this of aiding 
the high schools in debate. Commendation has erne 
from every quarter, and a real service is being ren- 
dered which fully justifies the praise bestowed. 

In order that the alumni may be in possession of a 
clear understanding of the plan which is being fol- 
lowed in the Union and that they may know where 
the debates arc to be held on the night of the twenty- 
first of February, an explanatory article by .Mr. ]■'.. R 
Rankin, Secretary of the Debating Union, with a list 
of the triangles, is carried elsewhere in this nun 
The younger brethren of the Societies have given the 
alumni a splendid opportunity to interest new men. 
the very men who should be at the Mill, in the Un: 
sity. See to it that the debate in your town is from 
every point of view a success. 

I low To Perhaps you like 'I'm Review; 
Help Us many people have said generous thii 

about it. Perhaps you don't ; some i 
told us of changes and additions they would liki 
see. We want to make it steadil} better, and we 

aren't proud or sensitive. The be-t way, .. 

to make it bettei is for our subscribers who happen 
io be the people who own the paper to help us. We 
surest three ways io helpfulness, all oi them im| 
tant: first, write io us and tell us privately your 

opinion of the pap. -id. write Us a short letter 

now and then to publish aboin college matters that 
interest you ; third, tell other alumni that Tin Review 
is a full dollar's worth. An especially tine thing to do 

would be 1 tied a half-dozen subscriptions for us 

in your community. In one town, during the ; 



month, an alumnus in the course of a walk down the 

street got four paid-up subscriptions — not much 

trouble to him, and a great help to us. 

The New Below The Review presents, under 
Crop the heading "The New Crop," a running 

story of the educational work of twelve 
directors of large educational forces who went into 
service from the University during the decade 1890- 
1900. In the work of these men (the number in this 
special held and in others could be extended at length) 
every alumnus is interested, and of it The Review is 
altogether proud. It pictures the University man as 

strong, vigorous, useful, repaying the State many fold 
and gladly, for the service rendered him individually. 

The University To Governor Craig, of the Execu- 
in the State's tive Department, to Chief Justice 
Service Clark, of the Judicial Department, 

and to President pro tern. Pharr 
and Speaker Connor, of the Legislative Department, 
together with all other University of North Carolina 
men associated with them in the public service of the 
State, The Review extends greetings. May you serve 
the State well, and thus add further honor to your 
alma mater. 


University Men of the Nineties Take Their Place in Large Educational Movements 

When the alumni speakers on the program of exer- 
cises for University Day, 1910, concluded their 
addresses, an indefinable something in the atmosphere 
led to the conviction that a new generation of strong, 
effective alumni, from the classes of 1890-1900, had 
come to the fore to take its part in the field of educa- 
tional activity in the State and nation; that the work 
of the men of the eighties — Alderman, Aycock, 
Mclver, Foust, Pell, Noble, Joyner — not only zvas to 
be supplemented, but was being supplemented and 
extended in new directions by their younger brothers ; 
that a new crop of University men, inspired with the 
ideals which had given largeness and power to the 
lives of their elders, had settled down to their life 
work— the work of bringing to the children of North 
Carolina and the Union a larger educational outlook. 

Since that day of home-coming, other evidences have 
accumulated to show that University ideals continue 
potent and that the I niversity is giving to the State 
men from whose present work and promise of future 
achievement are to be derived educational blessings 
no whit less than those derived from the past and 
present labors of their predecessors. The University 
stock remains aggressively vital, and in public life, in 
business, in the professions, as well as in the special 
field treated of here — the directing of large educational 
forces— the University is contributing a hundredfold 
to the better life of the State. 

It is further of note that in the service of these 
there is largely evident the element of self expres- 
sion. They are native North Carolinians, a part of the 
war], and woof of the State. They have grown up on 
C; rolina farms or in Carolina towns. They have 
f the call of their own blood and kin. They have 
• . ,,H ' ' '-'-e needs of the State from the point of view 
of then o\w, ..oerience. as well as from that of expe- 
rience gained >utside. Todav they move forward 
prepared in a peculiar way for the tasks to which they 
are unreservedly giving themselves. Pull, position 
artificial promotion, have played no part. These 

strong sons of the State have seen the vision in the 
large, and have gone forth to realize it. 

B. B. Doughertv, m , 

To particularize. II. ]',. Dougherty, of the class ot 
1899, went back to his home in Watauga after grad- 



uation to put new life into the schools of his county. 
Associating his brother with himself, he began to plan 
for Watauga Academy. He secured $1,000 in sub- 
scriptions for a building which was to cost $3,000. The 
public school was taught, the school census being 53, 
and the salary for teachers $22.50 per month. In Jan- 
uary, 1900, the subscription school opened with "four 
students. Everybody predicted failure. The second 
year prospects brightened. In January, 1901, the 
school opened with an even hundred. A normal 
department was added, with the result that both

academic students and prospective teachers were 
attracted from adjoining counties. The work grew 
to such an extent that it became too large for private 
enterprise. Accordingly, Dougherty outlined the plans 
for a State Training School for teachers in the moun- 
tain counties. The plans were embodied in a bill. 
Dougherty appeared before the legislative commitl 
and secured $r,5oo for building purposes and $2, 
for maintenance. The institution began training 
two hundred teachers annually, and has touched the 
school life of all the surrounding territory.

In the case of the Appalachian Training School, the 
plan and development are traceable to Dougherty. 
I 'resident R. H. Wright, '97, did not project the plan 
for the establishment of the East Carolina Training 
School, but he took from the Board of Trustees of 
that institution an incomplete, undeveloped plant on 
July 1, 1909, gathered a faculty each member of which 
was especially fitted for the special duties to be per- 
formed, determined upon the character of work the 
school should do, outlined the courses of instruction, 
brought the institution prominently before the people, 

Walter Thompson, '98 
.and on October 5, opened the school doors into which, 
during regular terms and summer terms, 1,762 stu- 
dents have been admitted. Since March 6, 1911, 607 
students have been refused admittance on account of 
lack of room. Of the thirty-five graduates, all are 
teaching, and eighty-five per cent, of the students who 
are teaching are filling positions in the elementary 
country schools. Trained under typical North Caro- 
lina conditions, President Wright thoroughly under- 
stands the educational need of North Carolina. His 
hobby, if he has one, is the trained teacher, and he 
bends every energy to give, through a school in every 

sense modern and thorough, the trained teacher to 
North Carolina's elementary schools. 

^ %. ^c ifc $z 

While Dougherty and Wright have been training the 
teacher for the country school, the problem of that 
important educational unit has been receiving thought- 
ful, penetrating study from another side. There are 
very few statistics to give concerning the results 
accomplished, and the story of that work does not 
"write itself in the same picturesque way that some 
of the other stories of educational progress have the 

1. M. Hardy, 00 

way of doing. But the studies of L. C. Brogden, 
Supervisor of Rural Schools, are bringing into promi- 
nence methods and plans which will soon come into 
general practice, and in the coming will be followed 
with a train of large benefits. There isn't anything 
spectacular about the visitation of a "one-teacher" 
school, in which one instructor "hears" thirty or thirty- 
five recitations a day, and disciplines from twenty-five 
to fifty children. But the result of such visitation leads 
to the conclusion that the "one-teacher'' school — the 
prevailing type at present — must go, and that the con- 
solidated school, with several teachers, and the trans- 
portation of pupils must take its place. This study 



brings the day nearer when school committeemen will 
form central organizations for the study of school 
problems; when the school plant will be mafic more 
useful as a community center; and when county com- 
mencements will illustrate strikingly the unanimity 
of the people of whole counties in the one thing of 
vital importance to them — the better education of their 
children and their neighbors' children. 

Of this work which Brogden has been doing since 
his connection with the State Department of Educa- 
tion in 1909, and which is partly outlined in a mono- 
graph published as a thesis for the M. A. at Columbia 
University in 1912, Dr. A. P. Bourland, General Agent 
of the Trustees of the Peabody Education Fund, 
expert in matters relating to rural schools, has this 
word to say: "Your bulletin on 'Consolidation' is

lina home life, are not easily to be Mated. !

them clearly. Upon this sure foundation, you built 
with precision and with a rare effectiveness. If any- 
thing better on this subject has been done I have not 
seen it. I congratulate you heartily, but more than 
you, the State and its children for whom this bulletin 
must needs accomplish much."

Two institutions which have contributed largely to 
the home life as well as to the educational life of the 
State, and whose promise of future contributions can 
well be accepted — Salem Academy and College, and 
the State Normal — have as President and Dean, 
respectively, two men of the nineties II K. Rond 
thaler, '93, and W. C. Smith, '96. Since [909, Rond- 
thaler has been President of the Academy and Col- 
lege, and the story of its development under his

it is difficult for tin- layman t" comprehend just what 

the duties of the dean are. The fact IS lost sight of 

that courses are to he arranged, that advice is to be

among the problems of college life, that there are

Smith is in a very remarkably successful way doing 
this Incidentally, there is hardly a week that passes 
that he is not called on to contribute something of 
value on the outside and, incidentally again, in the row 
of class-roll books which he has been keeping since he 
began teaching history and English here on the Hill 
k in 1896, there are the names of 1,285 men and 
2 ^65 women— 3,750 sons and daughters of North 
Carolina— who have come under the tutelage ana 
influence of one of North Carolina's best teachers. 

The point has been made earlier in this article that 
the men of the nineties in this special limited field (the 
county and city superintendentships, the professor- 
ships.' etc., filled by other equally successful Carolina 
nun have necessarily been forced out of considera- 
tion by space limitations) are extending the work of 

Schools, made him the available man. With a capac- 
ity of sixty (soon to be increased to ninety) boys, this 
school marks the beginning of a new method of treat- 
ment of juvenile offenders. Here, for the first time, 
the principle of conservation and reclamation has been 
applied to the youth of the State, with the gratifying 
result that character and worth are being conserved to 
the advancement of useful citizenship. 

Dr. Hardy has been for a number of years a prac- 
titioner in Washington, this State. Just when the 
idea of the need of a school for the mentally deficient 
children came to him, he has not revealed. But in 
191 1, during the session of the General Assembly, he 
appeared in Raleigh with his idea embodied in the 
preliminary draft of a bill, and began talking the 
measure. His idea made an appeal that could not be

their older brothers. The call of Alderman and 

Aycock and Mclver and Noble was "to educate." 

Their task was to show the necessity of education. 

With Joyner and Foust. these younger men have had 

to continue that work, and bring into use the most 

approved methods of educating. 
^ ^? ^ % ^ 

A still further step has been taken by two of this 
later group — W. R. Thompson, '98, of the Jackson 
Training School, and I. M. Hardy, ex-'oo, of the School 
for the Feeble-Minded. The child who is delinquent 
or deficient has been sought out, and provision for his 
development has been made. The idea, in the case of 
Thompson, did not originate with him. Rut when the 
women of the State, in 1007, secured appropriations 
for the maintenance of a reformatory, Mr. Thomp- 
son's work in Concord, as Superintendent of the City 

C. H. Johnston, '98 

resisted. In both branches of the Legislature men 
took up the idea — a number of them University men — 
and pushed the matter to a successful issue. In his 
recent message, Governor Kitchin referred apprecia- 
tively to the fact that the school would soon open, and 
Dr. Hardy has announced that the capacity of the 
school had already been more than covered by applica- 
tions. The laggard in the school who has seen 
through the glass but darkly, is, through the special 
training skillfully to be applied in this latest of our 
schools, to see the larger light! 

A variety of interests and services has been indi- 
cated thus far. Apart from his work as a historian 
and as the Secretary of the North Carolina Historical 
Commission, which is very significant, the work of 
R. D. W. Connor, '99, in unifying these interests, and 
in perfecting the Greater Teachers' Assembly, has a 


value the greatness of which lias as yet been but little 
realized. In 1908, when Mr. Connor came to the 
Secretaryship of the Assembly, he found a compar- 
atively small membership, the proceedings unpub- 
lished, the Assembly duplicating, in part, the work of 
a number of then separate organizations, and holding 
its meetings at times and places which did not admit 
of the serious kind of work desired. Furthermore, 
there was no money in the treasury, and the outlook 
was not over-bright. The task of changing these con- 
ditions was immediately taken up. The membership 
has grown to 685. The date of the meetings has been 
changed to the Thanksgiving period, during which

every teacher in the State is off duty and consequently 
can attend. The proceedings have been published 
annually, in which a body of educational material 
bearing directly on North Carolina problems is being 
accumulated for future use. Eight hitherto separate 
educational organizations have been brought into one 
central body. A surplus has been accumulated in the 
treasury, and the Assembly is ready to place a paid 
secretary in the field. By means of this centralized 
body, distinguished educators from other States can 
be secured for special addresses, educational sentiment 
as to reforms and legislation can be effectively 
expressed and each teacher who attends the meetings 
of the Assembly can and does feel the thrill of inspira- 
tional uplift which comes from united stimulating 

The criticism is sometimes made that the Univ< 
men find their life-work in othei

of the East Central State Normal of Oklahoma, 
spending themselves in educational work outside the 
State, that their services are lost to it. But that infer- 
ence is wholly incorrect. Their service to North Caro- 
lina is both real and great. 

After a successful career as teacher in and 

Oklahoma, President Briles has become the head of a 
Training School from whose catalogues, and outli 
much of comparative value can be gained by teachers 
here who are working along similar lines. Ju 
the University is considering seriously the problem of

department. Similar work to that now being under- 
taken by the Bureau of Extension, by the Societies, by 
the County Clubs, and by the Department of Educa- 
tion, has been planned and worked out in detail in 
many particulars by him, and within the past few 
months his book on the High School has become the 
guide to which all of our high schools and city schools 
can refer for a clear statement of problems incident 
to their organization and management. 

The list in this special field could easily be pro- 
longed. It might also be suggested that the decade 
1900-1910 is producing its contributors. It might 
be further suggested that in other fields — public 
health, legislation, business, the professions — men from 
the classes of the nineties are serving their State 
splendidly. In their activities as well as those of the 
men mentioned the same fact stands out clearly : the 

new crop is virile, and in producing it the University 
has done exceedingly well. 

It was not intended, at the beginning of this article, 
to predict as to the future, but the opening of Peabody 
Hall in May, the new home of the Department of 
Education, makes a statement of this nature admis- 
sible. It is not risking too much to predict that when 
the activities to center in that special building get 
under way, when the men of the eighties and nineties 
and others give gack to future students their fund of 
experience, when literature and the results of special 
investigations on all subjects relating to the educa- 
tional needs of the State are brought together in that 
department for study, and when a larger group of 
inspiring teachers carry forward the present work of 
teacher-training, the State may look in confidence 
for an even greater degree of service from the sons of 
the University. 


The Alumni Share in the Future Management of Athletics 

At the invitation of the faculty athletic committee, 
representative and interested alumni came to Chapel 
Hill December 16, for the faculty-student-alumni 
Athletic Conference. Those in attendance at the con- 
ference were Messrs. Walter Murphy and Stahle Linn 
of Salisbury, Brent Drane, George Thomas, and J. A. 
Parker of Charlotte. Albert Cox, Perrin Busbee, and 
C. O. Abernathy of Raleigh. W. F. Carr and Foy 
Roberson of Durham, J. M. Thompson of Graham, and 
James A. Gray, Jr., of Winston-Salem, representing 
the alumni ; President Yenable, Drs. Herty, Royster, 
Henderson, Mangum, Raper. and Professors Howell. 
Graham. Winston, and Patterson of the faculty; and 
L. P. McEendon, W. E. Wakeley, W. S. Tillett. E. L. 
Abernathy, Walter Stokes, F. P. Graham, and George 
L. Carrington, of the student body. The meeting went 
into the matter of finances, coaching, schedule, and 
eligibility rules as contributing causes to the disastrous 

As a basis for definite action. Mr. Albert Cox pre- 
sented a plan for alumni participation in the athletic 
management. The result was a decision for a reorgan- 
ization in the athletic system with a view to represent- 
ing the whole life of the University— faculty, alumni, 
and students. The nature of this system is expressed 
in the composition and duties of the four committees: 
the faculty athletic committee, the student athletic 
council, the resident committee, and the general 
alumni committee. 

The faculty committee will continue to administer 
the eligibility rules, whose strictness in enforcement 
was approved in recognition of the University's stand 
for amateur athletics. The student athletic council, 
established last year, will continue its work, under the 
advisement of a member of the faculty, for concen- 
trated efficiency in local management. The resident 
committee will be composed of two members of the 
faculty. Dr. J. F. Royster and Prof. P. II. Winston, 
the head coach, the president of the athletic associa- 
tion, and the graduate manager. This committee will 
have supervision of schedules, supplies, and local 
arrangements. The general alumni committee, the 
proposal of which was accepted by the athletic council, 
is to be composed of seven members, four alumni to be 
chosen by the alumni council, and three other mem- 
bers, one of whom is to be a member of the faculty 
and two of whom may be students. The men chosen 
for this committee are Mr. George Stephens of Char- 
lotte. Mr. Albert Cox of Raleigh. Mr. C. G. Wright of 
Greensboro. Mr. James A. Gray, Jr., of Winston- 
Salem. Dr. C. S. Mangum of the faculty, L. P. 
McLendon, graduate manager, and Frank Drew, under- 
graduate manager, of the student body. This committee 
will have power to choose the head coach and the 
special coaches, and to arrange for the return of 
alumni assistants. With a guarantee from the athletic 
iciation of $1,000 plus half the net profits, this 
committee will provide for the expenses of coaching, 
and will meet all deficits. Thus it is seen that under this 


system of threefold control the alumni will provide for Thi em means a new start in athlel 

the coaches, the faculty will be judges of eligibility, alumni are alive to the failures of tl 

and the faculty and students together will have direc- generous and businesslike interest has

Carolina and A. & M. Resume Athletic Relations 

The baseball schedule as given below is practically 
final, though there may be a few changes as to dates 
and places of two or three games. It will be noted that 
the schedule comprises twenty-three games, eight of 
which are to be played in North Carolina towns other 
than Cbapel Hill, eleven in Chapel Hill, and four in 
Virginia towns. For several reasons it has been 
deemed advisable not to arrange a long northern trip 
this season, as has been the custom in the past. \\ e 
are very anxious to get the Athletic Association on a 
good financial basis this year, and these long trips 
have always proven very expensive. 

The schedule as it stands is a very good one from 
a financial standpoint, and with even a fairly success- 
ful team we ought to be able to make some money on 
the season. From the standpoint of the champion- 
ship of Virginia and North Carolina, it is the best 
schedule that could have been arranged. It includes at 
least one game with every representative team in the 
two States except Trinity College.

in team-work and foul throwing. The winning point 
was made at the very end of the game. The game was 
close and exciting throughout.

A basket-ball league has been formed composed of 
A. & M., Wake Forest, Elon, Guilford, and Carolina. 
The schedule of the league provides for ten games. 
each team playing the other twice. 

Cartmell has had bis squad hard at work since 
1 (ecember. The line-up for the first game will be Car- 
rington, center; Redmon and Chambers, guards; Tillett 
and Mebane Long, forwards. Ranson and Holme- 
wood are close competitors. 

Three of last year's varsity baseball squad are in 
college now. Thad Page, outfielder, did not return 
for the Spring term. YVinstead, shortstop, had to 
leave college in the fall on account of a nervous break- 
down due 1" worry and overwork in preparing for the 
pharmacy board. Coach Bowers will have Captain 
Burr Edwards, third baseman, Jim Leak, first sacker, 
and Carl Bailey, second baseman, as a nucleus for 
developing a team. 

Bowers is highly recommended by Connie Alack. 
He has played in the Tri- State League, and was until 
injured a member of the Anderson team of the Caro- 
lina Association last year. He has been coach of the 
DeLancey High School, Philadelphia. Manager 
Strange has scheduled games with the A. & M. College. 


In the four-mile cross country run between A. & M. 
and Carolina, Smith of A. & M., came into the sight, 
of the five hundred spectators a few steps in the lead 
of Cobb. As they strained neck and neck for the 
spectacular finish little Collier dashed across the tape 
a few steps in the lead. Spence and Captain Patterson 
crossed in quick succession, followed by Horton of 
A. & M., Ranson and Whiting of Carolina. "Pat," 
the younger, preceded the last three A. & M. men. 
The score was Carolina 26, A. & M. 14. Cobb finished 
in twenty-two minutes and twenty-seven seconds.

Wollcott, high jumper; Blalock, broad jumper; 
Wakely, quarter miler; Strong, pole vaulter; and 
Sears, dasher. These nun have already placed Caro- 
lina to the front on the Southern track. 

'Doggie" Trenchard Chosen 

The General Athletic Committee composed of 
Messrs. George Stephens, Albert Cox. C. G. Wright, 
and Janice s. Gray. Jr., of the alumni, L. P. McLendon 
and Frank Drew of the student body, and Dr. Chas. 
S. Mangum of the faculty met in Chapel Hill January 
27, and selected T. C. Trenchard to be head football 
coach under a contract for three years. Trenchard is 
one of the greatest players that Princeton has ever 
developed and was placed at end on the All-time Ail- 
American Eleven. Besides being a great practical 
player he is possessed of coaching experience both at 
Chapel Hill and Princeton. Soon after his graduation 
from Princeton in 1894 he coached remarkably SUC- 
cessful Carolina teams. 



For a number of years it has been his loyal custom 
to return to Princeton for several weeks of the foot- 
ball season as special coach of ends. As an adopted 
alumnus of Carolina he often helped to round out the 
preparation for the Virginia game. Trenchard reports 
for duty March 1, to begin the spring football prac- 
tice with the good wishes of all. 

Financial Standing of the Athletic Association 
The following figures, furnished by the Treasurer 
of the Athletic Association to the Athletic Confer- 
ence Monday night, December 9, showed the financial 
condition of the Association at the close of the foot- 
ball season of 1912: 


Membership tickets $1,492.00

These figures, however, tell but a part of the story. 

At the beginning of the season the Association was 

carrying a debt of $2,754.00, to the reduction of which 

it was necessary to apply the net earnings, $1,610.95. 

After this amount had been applied, the Association 

still faced unpaid accounts amounting to $1,143.04.

Every school that enters the Union is arranged in 

a triangle for the triangular debates which will be held

arranging for these debates, and of deciding which Troutmans 

teams shall come to Chapel Hill in the final contest Cary 

for the State Championship and the Aycock Memorial Mur P h y

Cup, can best be illustrated by taking a typical triangle, Madison 

as Salisbury, Concord, and Statesville. Each school Farmington 

puts out two teams — one on the affirmative and the Stem 

other on the negative. On the night of February 21, Bens °n 

Salisbury upholds the affirmative at home with a team 

on the negative from Statesville, and sends her own Mt peasant 

team on the negative to Concord ; Concord's affirmative Gastonia 

team thus is pitted against this negative team from Hawfields 

Salisbury and she sends her negative team to States- pp . " 
J . . Stony Point 

ville; Statesville, in turn, has the affirmative against P j lot Mountain 

Concord and sends her negative team to Salisbury. Jamestown 

If any one of these schools wins both of their debates, Pittsboro 

then that school is entitled to send both of its teams 

to Chapel Hill ; if a school wins only one of its debates. 

it is not entitled to any representation at Chapel Hill 

The final contest at Chapel Hill will take place on 
March 7. Preliminary contests will be held here to 
determine the strongest affirmative team and the 
strongest negative team, and then these two will meet 
publicly in Gerrard Hall for the final honors.

Commencement, 1913 

I'lans for the coming commencement, June 1 to 4, 
have been so far perfected that President Venable has 
announced that Vice-President-elect Marshall, of 
Indiana, will deliver the commencement address, and 
Rev. E. Y. Mullins, D.D., of the Southern Baptist 
Theological Seminary, of Louisville, Ky., will preach 
the baccalaureate sermon. The details of all the plans 
are now being determined upon, and in a later issue 
will be given in full. 

A change decided on in the program for commence- 
ment week which will meet the approval of all the 
alumni is that Alumni Day, in recent years Monday, 
will be moved back to Tuesday, in order that alumni 
may have an opportunity to reach the Hill on Monday 
night and make ready for a full enjoyment of all the 
performances of the "old grads." 

A further change to which wide publicity should be 
given is that the unveiling of the monument to the 
memory of University men in the Civil War will be 
postponed from May 10, the date previously 
announced, to Monday, June 2, of commencement 
week. Preparations are going forward to feature this 
part of the program in keeping with the prominence 
which it deserves. 

The indications are that commencement records 
will again be broken. Mark the date, and "make 
reservations" now !

The Glee Club and Orchestra Please 
The concert of the Glee Club and Orchestra on 
December 6 was an event of unusual importance. 
Although it is a truism that the artistic sense in man 
needs developing as well as the intellect, it is not every 
college glee club that can become a factor in this devel- 
opment. The members of the University Glee Club 
and Orchestra may well be congratulated on the fact 
that, under the able leadership of Mr. Sneath and Mr. 
Woollen, they have become a most important factor. 
The whole concert was a delight, both in the music 
rendered and in the spirit in which it was given. The 
music, though of course light and tuneful as is most 
fitting for such an occasion, was really good music. 
In a program so well chosen and wholly delightful, ifj 
is perhaps unnecessary to particularize; but one can 
not help remembering with special pleasure the exquis-

The McNair Lectures 

The John Calvin McNair Lectures for 1913 were 
delivered on January 24, 25, and 26, by Dr. Fran. 
Peabody, professor of Christian Morals at 
University. The subjects were "The 
ability of the Christian Life," -'Christian Life 
the Modern Family," and '■Christian Life and 
Business." Gerrard Hall was crowded on all three 
nights, and the audiences always showed that sym- 
pathetic and intelligent interest that in, 
appreciation of the speaker. 

Dr. Peabody's message was, in the words of Pn 
dent Venable, "the presentation of the bigges 
tion of this age or of any age, and an answ< 
not be doubted by any thinking mind." It concei 
the practicability of the Christian life in the modern 
world, and its utilization in the modern family and 
modern business. To the discussion of the

One of the useful and genuinely valuable books 
recently issued is The Spirit of French Letters, by 
Mabell S. C. Smith (The Macmillan Company, New 
York— $1.50). Mrs. Pelton, as she was then known, 
is well remembered at the University, where she pur- 
sued studies in higher English, and in North Carolina, 
where she lived 1 \rden) for many years. Iter novel, 
. ! Tar Heel Baron, is remembered with pleasure by its 
North Carolina readers — even though it raised a 
mighty laugh at Mrs. Pelton for confusing the mythical 
language of Northern predisposition with the actual 
language of Southern usage. How we all howled 
when Mrs. Pelton had her Southern hero looking up 
into his mother's eyes and calling her (Heaven pre- 
serve us!) — "You all." Why, not even Bud Pressly 
would have done that! 

In her present work. Airs. Smith gives "such a sur- 
vey of French letters as will show their connection with 
the conditions — political and economic — of each period 
which produced them." The book is divided into the 
chapters, the titles of which show something of the 
author's aim in showing the parallel developments and 
inter-relations of literature and the concomitant forces 
of civilization: "Through the Winter Days and After"; 

"In Lyric Mood"; "Stirrings of Democracy and the 
Great Awakening" ; "When the Printing Press Came"; 
"The Century of Beginnings — The Sixteenth"; "The 
Great Century— The Seventeenth"; "Drama through 
the Centuries"; "The Century of Discussion— The 
Eighteenth"; "The Century of Inventions— The Nine- 
teenth"; "Today." 

The most notable feature of the book is the great 
care displayed in culling apt selections, in English 
translation, from French literature throughout the 
course of its history. The citations to these works, in 
English, thus furnishes a very natural sort of bibliog- 
raphy for the general readers ; the special student will 
have his course fully dominated, in any case, by his 
instructor. The real service which such a book may 
perform is twofold. First, it really does give an excel- 
lent birdseye view of the France of literature. The 
general reader, then, may read this book with both 
pleasure and the profit of instruction. Second, it may 
be used as a text-book— the citations given serving 
merely as a sample of the reading, critical and col- 
lateral, to be assigned by the instructor. I shall keep 
this book ready to hand. At any time, one may dip 
into it, and feel across his brow a breath of the spirit 
of French letters. 


There has recently appeared a very interesting 
bulletin (No. 9, 1912) of the United States Bureau of 
Education, by William Starr Myers, Assistant Pro- 
fessor of History and Politics, Princeton University. 
It is entitled Country Schools for City Boys. Profes- 
sor Myers describes the general movement now in 
progress for supplying city schools with an environ- 
ment at once homelike and rural, in large measure 
eliminating the serious drawbacks of the average city 
school — crowded streets, scant playgrounds, no trees 
and flowers, etc. Dr. Claxton suggests that this prin- 
ciple might easily be applied to the public high schools, 
at least of some cities, "with little or no additional cost 
to the public for buildings, grounds, and equipment, or 
to individual parents and children for transportation." 
The description by Professor Myers of the Baltimore 
experiment, resulting in the successful "Homewood," 
the first "Country School for City Boys," succinctly 
indicates how such a plan may be carried through. 
This school, now entitled The Gilman School, has at 
present a faculty of fifteen and a student body of 157. 
The advantages of the country school idea almost 
express themselves — the retention of home influences, 
wanting in the boarding-school ; open-air recreation atj 



all times, and thus the exclusion of unhealthful diver- 
sions for children, such as moving picture shows, 
matinees, etc. The problem for the congested city 
districts is open to possible solution, now being adopted 
here and there, of utilizing the tops of high buildings 
for schools. 

At the dedication exercises of the New York State 
Education Building, on October 15, 16, and 17. 1912, 
Professor Myers spoke from the same platform with 
President Chas. R. Van Hise, of Wisconsin, and Presi- 
dent Nicholas Murray Butler, of Columbia. Of his 
address, on "The Private Schools: Their Place in 
American Life," Chancellor Whitelaw Reid (late 
Ambassador to Great Britain, deceased) said: "The 
beauty of his address was that his youthful vigor and 
powerful statements showed his earnest, conscientious 
convictions." — A. H. 


From one of the sheets weekly disseminated 
throughout that State by the University of Kansas, is 
taken the following notice: 

' 'High School Education', a book by Dean Charles 
H. Johnston, of the University of Kansas School of 
Education, will be translated into Japanese. Fumino 
Ando of the Tsuchiura Middle School, Ibarakiken, 
Japan, has written to Dean Johnston asking for such 
permission, and arrangements for the Oriental edition 
are now in the hands of an Eastern publishing house. 
Ando is a graduate of the Tokyo Higher Normal 
School and during his course in that institution read 
Dean Johnston's book. He was so impressed with the 
merit of the work that he desired to rewrite it in his 
own language." 

Dr. Johnston's High Sclwol Education was reviewed 
in the last issue of The Review. 

The series of six articles appearing in the News and 
Observer under the general title of "A Plea for a Con- 
stitutional Convention" by Dr. J. G. deR. Hamilton, 
head of the Department of History in the University 
have attracted wide attention throughout the State. 
and have done more to crystallize sentiment on this 
important matter than any other agency. Dr. I [amil- 
ton's interest has led him beyond an academic si inly 
of the question. He has sought through personal lei 
ters and consultations to influence public men. and stir 
public opinion to activity. The articles have been 
reprinted in pamphlet form, largely through the inter- 
est of Prof. N. W. Walker, and may be had by writ- 
ing Dr. Hamilton.

At the meeting of the State Literary and Hisl 
Association, held in Raleigh, December 3 and 4. 
Archibald Henderson proposed a series of important 
resolutions looking toward the enhancement of literary 
and cultural values, which after d 
unanimously adopted. They will he found in the 
forthcoming volume of the "Proceedings," pi 
by the Association. The most important of 
lutions provided for a collection of the literatun 
North Carolina. Such a collection, to he installed in 
the new Administration Building now in course ol 
struction at Raleigh, would foster tin 
ture in our midst, placing before tens of thousand 
visitors each year tangible evidence "t" accomplishnv 
in letters by North Carolinians. Such a collection 
would consist of the works of North Carolina ant ' 
autographed whenever possible; original man: 
of such works; autograph poems; lett 
lion from famous literateurs; correspond" lit- 

erature and art between native men oi 
traits, busts, medallions, etc in 1. all 

memorials of literature and nun

A New Lectureship 

The need has been felt by the Faculty for a number 
of years of a series of lectures provided by the Uni- 
versity not only to supplant the psuedo-serious lyceum 
type of "attraction" with which the college community 
has become too familiar, but to draw to the University 
from the outside world of thought and action men 
capable of bringing it stimulating inspiring messages. 
As a result of a resolution adopted by the Faculty 
asking for the establishment of such a lectureship the 
Board of Trustees recently made provision for it and 
Professors Henderson, Bain, Coker, McGehee, and 
MacNider were appointed by the President as a com- 
mittee to arrange for it. 

On the night of December 5, Edwin Markham, the 
poet, appeared in Gerrard Hall as the first lecturer on 
the new foundation. Instead of giving a formal lec- 
ture, he devoted his time largely to the reading of his 
own verse, interspersed with commentary. Among 
other selections, he read with rare effect poems on 
Edgar Allen Poe, Lincoln, and his masterpiece, "The 
Man \\ ith the Hoe." The committee announces Rev. 
Samuel McChord Crothers, minister and essayist, as 
the next speaker on this foundation. 

The Millennium is Still Far Off 
Editor Alumni Review: 

A recent letter to me from a classmate contains 
suggestions in regard to athletic conditions at the Uni- 
versity that appear to me sane and sensible. I think 
that we cannot look forward to the dawn of the 
millennium because of the coming of the alumni system 
of coaching. As the quarter-back who helped to beat 
Virginia 16 to o about a century ago pertinently 
inquires, have the alumni got any system? I set 
forth a portion of the letter referred to, and trust 
that it may at least stimulate reasonable discussion of 
the questions touched upon. 

"Experience and reason both say that under normal 
conditions Virginia will defeat Carolina at least four 
times out of five. The latter has won only once or 
twice in the past ten years, and then with a team that 
was partly hired. Virginia's advantage lies 

"1. In her higher athletic standing drawing trained 
athletes from every part of the United States. 

"2. In the superiority of the preparatory schools 
from which she gets her student body. 

"3. In her financially easy circumstances. 

"These advantages make it inevitable that under 
normal circumstances, her well trained team, picked 
from a large offering of pre-trained athletes, will de- 
feat our self-developed squad. In other words, Caro- 
lina has bit off more than she can chew. What then 
shall she do? I believe she should recognize the true 
state of affairs and cease to make the whole success of 
her season depend on a game in which she is almost 
sure to be overwhelmingly defeated. If a fair basis 
of agreement could be reached with A. & M., and the 
Thanksgiving game be played in Raleigh, Carolina 
might expect to win at least three times out of five. 
As long as the final game is an important one, the 
success of the season will largely depend upon the 
outcome of this game. We could still play Virginia 
earlier in the season just as we would play George- 
town or the Navy. But the season would not be staked 
on a foreordained defeat. To this plan two objections 
will suggest themselves : 

"1. That the season is financed by the Virginia 
game, to which I reply: (a) That the gate receipts 
of the Virginia game will greatly decrease unless some 
change in prospects occurs; (b) That the gate receipts 
of an A. & M. game would be very large; (c) That it 
is- wrong to sacrifice the loyalty of the alumni for 
unearned gate receipts as is now being done. 

"2. That the change is inconsistent with the Caro- 
lina spirit — never-say-die, etc. 

"True the college generation that made the change 
wouFd have to make a big sacrifice of pride in admit- 
ting what is too clear for argument that Virginia is 
our athletic superior, but future college generations 
would reap large rewards from that sacrifice in hav- 
ing a fair chance at victory and that would mean more 
wholesome athletic conditions."

"A Treatise on Pellagra," by Edward Jenner Wood, '99. 

377 pp. D. New York, D. Appleton & Co., 1912 

It is especially appropriate that this treatise on pellagra 
should come from the pen of Dr. Wood. The author's father 
was a pioneer in public health work in this State, and as a 
result of his persistent efforts in this direction we have as a 
y the present State Board of Health. The medical pro- 
fession will welcome this book by a younger pioneer. 

The book consists of 377 pages, with 38 illustrations. The 
photographs of pellagrins are excellent. The details of the 



skin lesions are brought out in an unusually clear way, and 
serve the purpose of not only conveying a general idea of the 
skin manifestations of the disease, but give a clear interpreta- 
tion of the types of eruptions which arc encountered in 
pellagra. The text is logical in its arrangement, and the 
amount of material in the various chapters is appropriate in its 

It is unusual to find in a volume of such <ize such an 
exhaustive review of the history and distribution of the dis- 
ease under discussion. Much of this material has been obtained 
from original sources, and in addition to being accurate, throws 
much light on the pellagra problem as it exists in this country. 
The various theories concerning the etiology of the disease 
are clearly presented in an unbiased fashion The etiological 
relationship of maize or Indian corn to the disease is out- 
lined in a full discussion, and the work of various investi- 
gators, especially Tissoni, is reviewed in detail. While this 
theory of the origin of pellagra is given first place in the text, 
the theory of Sambon that pellagra is an insect-born parasitic 
disease and that the parasite may be a protozoan is also fully 
presented. To this theory the author gives his support. The 
symptoms of pellagra are considered first in a chapter on 
"General Characteristics of the Disease," which is followed 
by chapters that take up in detail a discussion and an inter- 
pretation of the more striking and usual symptoms. This 
double presentation serves the purpose of making the clinical 
picture both clear and complete. The chapter on the nervous 
and mental changes in pellagra is especially full, and its value 
is increased by the incorporation of case histories and letters 
from patients. The letters show the mental deflections which 
so commonly occur in pellagrins. The chapter on the treat- 
ment of pellagra is short, conservative, and hopeful. 

The book as a whole contains excellent material, which is 
presented in an unbiased way, in a clear style, and is remark- 
ably free from exaggerations and hasty deductions. Dr. Wood 
was one of the first men in America to realize the importance 
of th's new disease. It is unfortunate that his illness should 
have prevented this treatise from appearing some four years

The Dramatic Club Scores Ten 

The University Dramatic Club made an uncommonly big 
hit with its local audience when it presented in Gerrard Hall 
on the evening of January 28, George Rroadhurst's amusing 
comedy, "What Happened to Jones." The Club's choice of 
play was happy, for the large audience convulsed itself with 
laughter over the series of humorous complications produced 
by the necessity of traveling-salesman Jones's assuming the 
identity of the Bishop of Rallyrack, and by the discomfiture 
of the learned professor of anatomy in beating a hasty retreat 
from a prize fight. 

The whole caste, leading and minor characters, displ 
unusual talent for playing, and had heaped upon them the con- 
gratulations of the whole University for not onlj reviving 
dramatics in the University with such a vengeance, hut for 
giving everybody two hours of genuine amusement. The care-

General Julian S. Carr and the Carr boys have purchased 
the entire plant and good will of the Thos. E. Lloyd Manu- 
facturing Company, of Chapel Hill, and took charge of the 
plant January 15. The new purchase will be operated as one 
of the string of mills of the Durham Hosiery Mills, and 
will be known as Durham Hosiery Mill No. 7- W. F. Carr 
will have charge of the operation of this mill, and John T. 
Rough will have charge of the Durham end of the new busi- 

Smokers have largely taken the place of banquets among 
the classes and organizations this year. Three were held 
by the Seniors during the Fall, and the other classes, the 
Societies, and the various clubs have had their innings also. 
The informality of the meetings has appealed widely to the 
students and has called out a greater interest in "the other 
fellow" than has ever been evidenced heretofore. 

Through the effort of the Eastern North Carolina Chris- 
tian Conference, a church building is being erected on 
Cameron Avenue, opposite the Harris place, for the use of 
the Christian Church. The church already has an organised 
membership of 43, and its new building will soon be 
pleted. This will give the village five churches. 

Rev. Plato Durham, of Centenary Methodist Church, 
Winston-Salem, preached the third University sermon for 
'1 e year on Sunday, December 15. His presentation of the 
subject, the incarnation of the Master's spirit, was remark- 
ably masterful and productive of profound effect. 

The Juniors recently elected James T. Pritchett. of Lenoir, 
chief marshal for the coming commencement. R. T. Allen, 
P. C. Darden, L. R. Johnston, T. A. DeVane, B. D. Apple- 
white, and F. D. Conroy were elected marshals. 

The query, "Resolved, That without regard to the llay- 
Pauncefote treaty, the tolls of the Panama Canal should be

Friday night, December 27, thirty-two University men 
gathered at the Smithfield Hotel to enjoy a banquet given by 
the Johnston County Club. Young and old students alike 
enjoyed a pleasant evening in discussing questions of interest 
to the University. They partook of a sumptuous banquet in 
true college style. 

Hon. E. W. Pou was the first speaker of the evening. He 
took as his subject "The Influence of the University Upon 
Myself." He mentioned the high ideals with which he came 
in touch, the opportunities for the. development of a strong 
man, and the desire for success that came about as a result 
of his stay at the University. 

Dr. C. L. Raper, Dean of the Graduate School of the 
University, delivered the address of the evening. He dis- 
cussed the question, "Is the University Aristocratic?" Dr. 
Raper said: 

"The impression is abroad that the University is aristo- 
cratic in its ideals and policies, and that it consequently does 
not render unselfishly that universal service which it should 
to all the people of North Carolina. Is this impression cor- 

"Aristocracy is a disposition of mind and heart. It usually 
comes from the possession of wealth, social standing, or cul- 
ture, hut the mere possession of these never in itself makes 
one aristocratic. Do the students and faculty have an artisto- 
cratic disposition? Do they wish to enjoy exclusively and 
selfishly their mental training or their equipment? 

"The students are grouped into classes — -graduate or pro- 
fessional, senior, junior, sophomore, and freshman ; and every 
white boy who has the proper training may become a member 
of any of these classes without prejudice, whatever his social 
standing or wealth. There is no aristocracy between the 
classes except that which the sophomores sometimes display 
toward the freshmen. This aristocracy is becoming less, and 
it must wholly disappear. The students are grouped into fra- 
ternity and non-fraternity men. There has been some aristoc- 
racy in this grouping, but this aristocracy must also disappear. 
The fraternity may continue to exist, but its aristocracy must 
cease to be. The students are also grouped into rich and 
poor, but this grouping is practically unmarked. The mere 

possession of wealth counts less in Chapel Hill than in most 
places of the world. 

"The faculty are grouped into various grades of teachers 
and officers, but aristrocacy of grade rarely displays itself. 
The faculty are grouped into fraternity and non-fraternity 
men, but it is never that aristocracy of social standing mani- 
fests itself among the professors. The faculty are also grouped 
into well-to-do and poor, but aristocracy of wealth plays a 
most insignificant part in Chapel Hill. 

"Are the professors aristocratic toward the students and 
the people? Do they selfishly use their mental training and 
culture? There are few professors who are not willing and 
eager to render every possible service of mind and heart to 
the students ; if the students do not do their part, that is their 
fault. There are a good many professors who are always 
willing and ready to go outside — to every part of the State — 
to render free of charge whatever service they may, as speak- 
ers, engineers, etc. That they do not render more of this kind 
of service, is solely due to the fact that they do not have the 

"It is sometimes said that the professors of the University 
do not hold deeply at heart the success of the elementary com- 
mon schools. If this is really true, the University is tremen- 
dously unfortunate. Its life and strength depends in a large 
measure upon these schools. Many of the professors are in 
part the products of these schools, and so are their students. 
They must, of necessity, wish these schools every possible 

"I for one make no d'stinction between fraternity and non- 
fraternity boys. I do not know or care to know whether my 
students are of one grade of social standing or another. I 
for one make no distinction between the poor and the rich 
boy. I do not know that a student is poor until he asks for 
financial assistance. I only ask that each student shall do his 
work honestly and independently, whatever his standing in 
social life or in wealth. I for one make no distinction between 
education in the University — the people's highest common 
school — and education in the elementary common schools. I 
have, of course, to spend most of my time at work with my 
students in the University. But I always accept an invitation 
from the elementary common schools, if I possibly can ; and 
more than this I render to it my best service, even though 
it be the poorest school in North Carolina. I for one have 
profound conviction that my mental training and culture 
should be for the use of all my neighbors — even the poorest, 
humblest, and the most ignorant. And all of my colleaeues 
have the same conviction, even to as profound a degree, as I." 

After these two addresses there were other short speeches 
from alumni and students. Mr. G. T. Whitley discu I 
"What Relation Should the High School Bear to the Univer- 
sity." He said that the high schools and graded schools of 
the State should send the University well prepared hoys. The 
University should send out well equipped teachers who should 
instill the University spirit into the young men of the State. 

Dr. A. IT. Rose then discussed "University Athletics." 
He thought that the alumni of the State should pay more 
attention to the athletic side of the University and help the 
students in securing good coaches. He was in favor of going 



out into the high schools and graded schools and picking the 
trained athletes. Something must be done, and by the com- 
bined effort of alumni, faculty, and students. 

Mr. A. M. Noble then announced himself in favor of 
coeducation in all the classes. He said that because women 
arc now entering fields that call for the broad education offered 
by the University, all classes should be open to them. They 
are unable to secure the broader education at most of the col- 
leges for females, and it is unfair to close the doors of the 
University to them. 

Prof. A. Vermont discussed the question as to the raising of 
the curriculum. He said that it was impossible for the high 
and graded schools to prepare the students well enough at 
present, and therefore the curriculum should not be raised. 

Mr. J. A. Wellons was in favor of more substantial sup- 
port by the State. The growing need must be met by the 
State as a whole, and not by those boys who are hardly able 
to pay their way at the present. 

Mr. R. E. Parker discussed the relation of the University 
to Johnston County. He showed that the relation should be 
one of hearty and unsefish cooperation for the advancement 
of all the people through a broader education. 

.Mr. J. D. Parker then told of the condition of the Univer- 
sity in i8g5. Many improvements have since been made, but 
the memory still clings to the past. 

Mr. I. M. Bailey then recounted the work of the club. He 
said that the club was responsible for the great work that the 
county clubs are now doing. The Johnston County Club has 
attained leadership, and is to be found first in every move- 
ment that helps to build the University. 

Following this there were short speeches by others present. 
Mr. H. C Pettaway, of Florida, was present and made a 
short interesting talk, appealing to the alumni to get behind 
every movement for the growth of the University. 

This was the first banquet of its kind to be held in this 
State, and the Club is to be congratulated upon the great 
success. All present voted to make the joint banquet an annual 
event and in the future to welcome the wives and sweethearts 
of those present. Much interest was manifested by both 
alumni and students, and it is hoped that the banquet will 
bring about a hearty and manifest cooperation between the 
Alumni Association and the County Club. All should and 
will join hands in making the Johnston County Club the best 
i" the State.— I. M. BailEv, '13, in the Smtihficld Journal. 

On the night of December 26, in the Artillery Club rooms, 
the students from Rowan county attending the University, 
the boys of the graduating class of the high school, and other 
prospective University students, and alumni of the University, 
all gathered together— drawn by that common feeling of 
University loyalty— to speak of and recall memories of Chapel 

The meeting was in no way a formal one. Alumni, stu- 
dents, and near students gathered together without differences 
ind mingled as University men. After enjoying the glow of 
the club-rooms for awhile the assembly was prorogued and 
everyone adjourned to the Grubb Theater. The genial man- 

ager of the theater, Mr. Marsh, had placed al : 
the club four lower boxes, gratis, and 
Carolina men.

could be gained. Rev. J. M. Bigham, of Erskine, followed 
in lighter vein, and kept the company laughing. J. Carl 
Cashion, of the Washington Americans, and now a student at 
Davidson, spoke on athletics. Cashion began his baseball 
career at the Huntersville school and is the local hero. What 
he had to say was eagerly listened to by the prospective college 
men, two of whom are younger brothers of his and are plan- 
ning to enter the University. 

The principal speaker was L. J. Hunter, '06, of the Charlotte 
bar, who spoke on "The University of North Carolina." He 
reviewed the history of the University, and emphasized its 
great service to the State. He said, in speaking of the special 
merits of the University as an institution which fitted men for 
large service, that he had attended three other institutions 
and that the University, in his opinion, was the best place in 
the State at which to secure a broad education. Among other 
things he discussed the religious life of the University and 
the hazing incident of the early fall.

The University Alumni of Lincoln County held their 
second annual banquet on Monday evening, December 2.3, ioij. 
at the Union Hotel, in Lincolnton. About twenty of the 
thirty-five members of the Association braved the cold, si 
weather to attend. A declicious salad course with pickles and 
coffee was served, after which University punch and cigars 
were enjoyed. Mr. Charles A. Jonas of the Lincolnton bar 
a a- elected toastmaster for the evening, and he displayed 
' wit and humor in his introduction of the different 
speakers of the evening. Among the different subjects dis- 
cussed were : "University Men of Lincoln County." 
"Hazing." "Athletics," "Student Life at the University," 
"Needs of the University," and "How the Alumni Can Aid 
the University." 

The oldest alumnus present, Mr. A. Nixon, was the first 
speaker. He graduated in the class of '81, with Mclver, 
Joyner, and other men who have won high honor and held 
high official positions. After giving a few reminiscences of 
university life, he mentioned some of the men of Lincoln 
county win, received their education at the University. In 
the political campaign of 1848, when James K. Polk (a grad- 
uate of the University) was elected president of the United 
States, the two opposing candidates for Governor in North 
Carolina were University men and both were from Lincoln 
county. This campaign went down in history as one of the 
greatest and most notable in our State's politics. 

Among the alumni who responded to different subjects 
relating to University life were C. E. Mcintosh, A. L. Quickel, 
K. B. Nixon, Dr. J. B. Wright, Michael Bean, and Frank 
Love. A resolution was adopted to hold another meeting next 
year. The following officers were elected for 1913 : President 
of Lincoln county Alumni Association, Dr. J. B. Wright; 
Secretary and Treasurer, K. B. Nixon.

The rejuvenation of the North Carolina Society of New 
York is due to the energy of its president, George Gordon 
Battle, "8i-'82. At the University Day banquet Mr. Battle 
urged the alumni to take more active interest in the Society. 
As a result quite a large number of the alumni attended the 
North Carolina dance and reception held at The Plaza on 
December 7. Two or three more entertainments during the 
Winter are planned by the Society. 

Isaac F. Harris, '00, read a paper on the chemistry of food 
before the Yonkers Medical Society, December 12. He 
reviewed the results of recent experiments in this department 
of science, and set forth what properties of protein, carbo- 
hydrates, fats, and beer had been found most effective in 
nourishing and strengthening the human body. The paper 
was received by the members of the Medical Society with 
pronounced enthusiasm. 

Albert Marvin Carr, '01, was married on October 12 to 
Miss Aurelia Fitzpatrick of Kansas City. Mr. and Mrs. Carr 
are now occupying their new home on East Eighty-second 
street, New York. 

The result of the Army and Navy game was quite a dis- 
appointment to the New York alumni who were present, their 
sympathy being with the army, inasmuch as Capt. Ernest 
Graves. L T . N. C, '00, was the army coach. 

From American Laun Tennis. October 15, 1912, the editor 
has secured the following clipping through the courtesy of 
Mr. E. K. Graham: 

Grazes Stars at Scranton 
"As usual, the annual championship of Northeastern 
Pennsylvania, which was held on the courts of the Scranton 
Country Club, Scranton, Pa., September 11 to 14, produced 
a surprise in the way of a finish. Louis Graves, of Haworth. 
N. L, whose improvement has been very marked this season, 
came through his half of the draw and met William B. 
Cragin, Jr., in the final round, defeating him in straight sets 
with astonishing ease. ... In the third round Graves 
and G. C. Shafer clashed and the former got into the limelight 
at once by winning at 6-4, 7-9, 7-5. Shafer was not quite as 
steady and enduring as usual, while Graves played with sj 
accuracy and confidence. . . . Graves advanced a stage 
in the third round by disposing of William McCreath, of 
Llarrisburg, who was suffering from a game leg, the result of 
a fall after the first set, which Grave- won at 8-6; and then 
it was all Graves. . . . The final round was a big surprise 
— not so much as to the outcome as for the ease with which 
Graves won from his formidable opponent. He played just 
the game to beat the New Yorker, hitting hard and very 
cleanly, placing beautifully, volleying severely, and using 



excellent judgment throughout. Try as he would Cragin 
could not slow him down nor get him worried. The first set 
was Graves' at 6-1, the next at 6-3, and the last at 6-4." 

In the final ranking of the one hundred best tennis players 
of America, as issued by the Secretary of the Ranking Com 
mittee, Mr. George T. Adee, and published in The Mew York 
Times, December 15, 1912, Mr. Graves' name appears as fourth 
in Class 6. The fine record he has achieved will appear 
especially in noting the names of eminent tennis players 
below his in Classes 6-9. 

Class Reunions for Commencement 1913 

The classes scheduled to hold reunions during commence- 
ment 191 3, are those of 1908, 1903, 1893, 1888, 1863, the five-, 
ten-, twenty-, twenty-five-, and fifty-year graduates. Members 
of these classes will facilitate preparations for these reunions 
if they will place themselves at once in communication with 
their respective class secretaries, and with W. S. Bernard, 
chairman of Committee on Class Reunions, Chapel Hill, N. C. 



After an illness of several months, George H. Gregory 
died on. December 18, 1912, at his home in Greensboro. Mr. 
Gregory was born in Washington, N. C, 77 years ago, was a 
member of the General Assembly in 1868 and 1870, postmaster 
at Greensboro during Cleveland's administration, lie studied 
law under Judge Dick, and was a law partner of the late 
Judge Tourgee. 


News was received in Raleigh January 3, of the death in 
Richmond, Va., of Col. W. H. S. Burgwyn, who died at the 
home of his nephew, Dr. H. B. Baker. Colonel Burgwyn 
was sixty-seven years old, was a veteran in the Civil War, 
and commanded the Second Regiment in the Spanish- 
American War. He was actively interested in the National 
Guard. He is survived by his wife, who was Miss Margaret 
Dunlop, of Richmond, and several brothers. He was a mem- 
ber of the Episcopal Church, of Woldon, and was interested 
in the banking business.
