The Alumni Review 

Vol. I 

April, 1913 

No. 4 


The School The dedication, on May 2, of Pea- 
of Education body Hall, the new home of the 
School of Education, will mark an 
event in the life of the University and State of great- 
est importance. On that date, the Department of Edu- 
cation, with a record of thirty-seven years of splendid 
service to the State in spite of the lack of adequate 
quarters and funds, will be established in new quar- 
ters, and with greatly increased facilities and instruc- 
tional force, will strive to bring in what it and the 
I'niversity as a whole hope may be an epoch of gen- 
uine educational upbuilding for North Carolina. 

To the different interests involved, the opening of 
the building will bring new responsibilities. Upon the 
University will fall the immediate necessity of pro- 
viding the school with such additional financial sup- 
port as will enable it, through an adequate instructional 
staff and physical equipment, to do the work which is 
so greatly needed in the State. This it is actively plan- 
ning to do. The further duty will fall upon it of 
thinking along broader public educational lines. Its 
policies as to this School, in view of the fact that it is to 
be vitally bound up with the interests of the complete 
school system of the State, will have to recognize the 
actual conditions which obtain in the system and will 
have to meet them. The teacher in the modern public 
school requires a very much more extensive and less 
narrowly restricted preparation than that required of 
the private school principal back in 1877. Familiarity 
with hygienic and public health laws, a working knowl- 
edge of school agriculture, instruction in the art of 
leading social betterment movements, actual experience 
gained by teaching in all the grades of a thorough 
practice school, serve as examples of the requisites, in 
addition to a thorough general and professional knowl- 
edge, which are essential to the equipment of the 
teacher of today who is to prove himself an effective 
teacher and man. To do this, the University will be 
confronted with the necessity of providing courses 
in (he regular term, in the Summer School, and 
through correspondence, which will enable teachers to 
increase their professional knowledge without giving 

up entirely, for a period of years, their daily task in 
the class-room. The machinery of the State's highest 
public school will have to be made so flexible that it 
may help equip hundreds of teachers in the lower 
schools who under the present requirements of the 
University, are totally cut off from participation in 
the benefits which it should confer. 

I "pon Dean Noble, whose appointment as the head 
of the School has recently been announced, and his 
colleagues, will rest the task of formulating construc- 
tive plans and carrying them out effectively. The 
School of Education is logically the vital, connecting 
link between the University and the State. Its oppor- 
tunity for direct service to the people is greater than 
that of any other department of the University. Upon 
the manner in which it renders or fails to render this 
vital service, will depend in large measure the welfare 
of both the University and the State. 

Dean Noble's experience, gained in the school work 
of the State and here at the University, and his inti- 
mate knowledge of the educational condition- and 
needs of North Carolina, justify the University's 
expectation that these opportunities will be realized 
and fully met by him and those associated in the 
School with him. 

Upon the other departments of the University, the 
duty of hearty co-operation will fall. Mreadj it has 
been clearly shown that this will not Ik- considered 
a duty, but rather a high privilege. The other depart 
ments are eager to aid the School in .ill of its under- 
takings, and will meet any demand which may he 
made upon them. 

The ultimate burden of the cost involved falls upon 
the State. Its duty in the matter, provided the I 'ni- 
versitv and the officers of the School meet their respon- 
sibilities, is clear. It sorely needs move efficient teach 
ers. \\ ith a six-mouths' term and a compulsory att< 
ance law, it is more necessary than ever for the Si 
to equip teachers of true character and the higl 

professional ability. If. as Dr. Melver said, the 

teacher is the "seed corn*' of our civilization, and it 
the School produces (Ins "seed corn" o\ a high quality, 



the State's duty will be to give the support required 
in its production. 

If all the interests concerned assume their duties, 
there can be but one result— the vitalization and 
upbuilding of the whole system of public education in 
North Carolina. 

The Debating 


To the debating Union Committee 
and to C. E. Mcintosh, the origi- 
nator of the Debating Union idea in 
North Carolina, the University and State owe a real 
debt : for the contests held throughout the State on 
iruary ->i. and the finals held here on the sixth and 
seventh of March, were in the highest sense success- 
ful, and marked the beginning of a movement of 
unquestioned significance both to the University and 
the State. 

The nature of the success was composite. 

The sug- 
gestion made by Mr. Mcintosh to the Societies to aid 
the State high schools in debate was a call to them, 
century-old in point of indirect service to North Caro- 
lina, to take a part in the social service of the State. 
It woke the Societies up to the fact that they, while 
still here on the campus and out of touch with the 
State at large, could reach out and touch the State 
at its most vital spot. 

For several years the University has taken a very 
^ervative view of the question of University 
Extension. Lack of funds, possibly, has been in the 
main the determining factor in the holding of this 
view. But the example of what the Societies have 
been able to do — at comparatively small expense — has 
enabled the University to see more clearly its oppor- 
tunity for a larger direct service to North Carolina 
than it has ever rendered. Under the stimulus of this 
example, the University will hereafter push its work 
further afield, and attempt to reach in helpful service 
the fireside of every North Carolina home. 

Vs a work of social service, it was an unqualified 
success. The need and use of libraries for purposes 
of reference and careful study was sharply empha- 
sized. Schools from every section of the State were 
brought into friendly rivalry, and students from rival 
schools exchanged visits. Four or five hundred boys 
and girls, citizens of the next decade, thought out a 
practical vital question of the day, and mastered 

the art of presenting their views on it in an effective, 
a convincing way. Sixty-four of these won their right 
to come to their State University, and did come, and 
became acquainted with its life and spirit, and here, 
under the stress of the keenest competition, fought out 
anew the question which they had presented to ninety 
communities of the State. 

As a debate, the final contest between Pleasant Gar- 
den and Durham was of the very first order. The 
four men handled themselves like skilled inter-colle- 
giate debaters. The entire University was out to hear 
them. The spirit of the contest was perfect, and the 
victory won by Pleasant Garden was distinctly 



Social The success of the Societies in their enlarged 
Service activities suggests the possibility of a more 
general participation in social service work 
by all University alumni. The alumni of other col- 
leges, especially those grouped together in the larger 
cities, devote their energies to some special restricted 
object. The Haverford alumni and undergraduates 
in Philadelphia, for example, conduct a night school 
for the Italians, and the alumni in New York of one 
of the central western universities have asked for the 
privilege of aiding in the organized relief of the poor. 

In North Carolina opportunities for such work have 
not been as apparent as in the larger centers, because 
of the smallness of the cities. The number of alumni 
who are united in any one group is also necessarily 
limited. But this condition does not preclude a more 
general social betterment work. Just now, through 
the organization of the county clubs at the University, 
and of the North Carolina Conference for Social Ser- 
vice, the first meeting of which was held in Raleigh, 
February n and 12, an opportunity for entering this 
work has been given to every alumnus of the Uni- 
versity. And this is just the kind of work for which 
the educated man is peculiarly fitted. Public health in 
North Carolina needs to be conserved. Conditions 
obtaining in some of the manufacturing industries can 
be improved. The social isolation of the rural com- 
munity should be made less deadening. Child life can 
be further protected and uplifted. But enough of the 
catalog. University men who have been aided by the 
State have in these new movements the opportunity of 
repaying their debt to the State, and of doing the finer 
thing — which is in keeping with the fundamental spirit 
of their alma mater — namely, picking up the burden 
where it rests heavily on the State, and lightening it. 



Legislative The Legislature which adjourned on 

Appropriations March 13 was, considering the 
deficit with which it was confronted, 
generous to the University, in that it increased the 
annual maintenance fund from $87,000 to $95,000, and 
confirmed the action of the Legislature of 191 1 which 
appropriated $50,000 a year for 1913 and 1914 for 
permanent improvements. A larger annual mainte- 
nance fund could be used to very good purpose, and 
it is greatly to be regretted that it could not be secured. 
The new School of Education, the Summer School, 
the Bureau of Extension, all of which are planning 
for a more vital and direct service to the State, will 
be more restricted in their work than they should be, 
and several departments in the University which for 
years have been in need of additional instructors and 
equipments will have to carry on their work upon the 
present basis. This is very unfortunate, but the addi- 
tional $8,000 will meet these needs in part, and will 
be used to the great good of the State. The appropria- 
tion for permanent improvements will go to the imme- 
diate erection of the new Commons, and in doing so 
will provide dining quarters for a large part of the 
student body. Recently this has been the University's 
most pressing need, and that the University has been 
enabled to meet it is cause for genuine gladness. 

Delegates In view of the fact that the General 
Should Be Alumni Association of the University is 
Elected now, under the new plan of organization, 

a body in which only duly-appointed 
delegates can vote, the various city and county associa- 
tions should hold meetings at an early date and dis- 
cuss measures to be acted on and se^ct delegate 
the alumni meeting on Tuesday, June 3, of commence- 
ment week. Alumni who are present, but who are 
not delegates, have the privileges of the floor during 
the meeting, and may take part in the discussions, but 
are not entitled to a vote. In order that the associa- 
tions may be able to present their views, and follow 
them up with votes, it will be necessary to name and 
send properly-qualified representatives. 

Secretary The Review takes genuine pleasure in 
Daniels chronicling the appointment of Josephus 
Daniels to membership in President Wil- 
son's Cabinet as Secretary of the Navy. Mr. Daniels 
is the fifth North Carolinian and fourth alumnus of the 
University to hold this pos : tion. He is eminently 
worthy of the great honor bestowed, and his alma 
mater and fellow alumni congratulate him most 

The Editor of the News and Observer Becomes Secretary of the Navy 

When, a week before Woodrow Wilson was inau- 
gurated as President of the United States, the semi- 
official announcement was made of the appointment 
of Jo Daniels, '85-'86, editor of The News and 
Observer, national committeeman from North Caro- 
lina for sixteen years, and last-ditch Bryan supporter, 
as Secretary of the Navy, there was little surprise 
among those who have followed Daniels' part in the 
last four national campaigns. And there was general 
rejoicing from Cherokee to Currituck, or from Mur- 
phey to Manteo (to use a News and Observer stereo- 
typed headline), that after more than fifty years North 
Carolina is to take its place once more at the cabinet 
table. Those who have felt the stroke of Jo's heavy 
pen, those who are sufficiently conservative to object 
to red ink in their newspapers, and even those who 
be'ong to a political organization not particularly 
beloved of The Nezvs and Observer one and all were 
glad that Josephus had arrived. There was no one to 
doubt his deserts, and no one to deny his ability. 

Those who delve back into the dark and dusty past, 
at once called to mind the fact that of the five cabinet 
officers North Carolina has "given" the nation just five 
have been Secretaries of the Navy. Precedent counts 
with a historian-president. Even as far away from 
home as New York, we see an inquisitive letter writer 
in The Times asking the whyness of North Carolina's 
unproportionate representation in the office of Secre- 
tary of the Navy. In a reply two weeks later, a Tar- 
heel exile in Richmond took the trouble to call attention 
to the maritime future of our State when the greal 
port at Point Lookout is finished, and what is more, 
to the fact that Secretary Daniels "knows something 
al» mt salt water, and what he has not learned yet will 
shortly he acquired, if energetic taking hold of a sub- 
ject means anything." 

Attention has not, however, been called to the fact 
that of the ti\c North Carolinians who have served 
as Secretary of the Navy four have been alumni of 
the University of North Carolina. University men 



who have held this office are: John Branch, 1801, 
from 1829-1831; William A. Graham, 1822. from 
[850-1852; Tames C. Dobbin, [832, from 1853-1857; 
[osephius Daniels, 1885-1886, 1913— I" addition to 
these 1 Y .Mason, 1816, was twice Secretary of the 
Navy, from [844-1845 and from 1846-1849. Mason 
was appointed from \ irginia; and George E. Badger, 


Secretary of the Navy during 1841, a member of the 
Class of 1813 at Yale, was a trustee of the University 
from 181 8 to 1844. 

The University's list of cabinet officers is greater 
than that of the State. J. Y. Mason, 1816, of Virginia, 
held in addition to the position of Secretary of the 
Navy the Attorney-Generalship of the United States 
under Polk (1845-1846) ; J. H. Eaton, 1803, was Sec- 
retary of War from 1829 to 1831, being appointed 
when he was a resident of Tennessee; A. V. Brown, 
1814, a!so of Tennessee, was Postmaster-General from 
1857 to 1859; and Jacob Thompson, 1831, of Missis- 
sippi, served as Secretary of the Interior from 1857 
to 1861. 

None of these cabinet officers was a more devoted 
son of the University than is the new Secretary of the 
Navy. Josephus Daniels was a student at the Uni- 
versity in the year 1885-1886. In 1901 he was elected 
a trustee. This is one of the few positions of "trust 
and profit" Daniels has ever held. In 1904 he was 
placed upon the executive committee of the trustees, 
a position in which his knowledge of men and things 
and his deep interest in everything educational have 
given him an unusual opportunity to render great ser- 
vice to his alma mater. He has taken advantage of 
this opportunity. 

A few weeks before he left North Carolina tem- 
porarily, Secretary Daniels was made chairman of the 
building committee of the new Commons Hall. This 
plant is a part of the State's Chapel Hill property, in 
which the new Secretary is especially interested through 
his desire to see the man of average means have pro- 
vided for him by the State a proper place in which to 
eat his moderately-priced meals. 

Those who know editor Daniels' plan of conduct- 
ing what he himself likes to call, when he is in New 
York, bis country paper at Raleigh, are not at all 
surprised at the vigorous and intelligent way in which 
the Tarheel Secretary has gone at his new job. 
Although the Raleigh editor had a large staff on his 
paper, he himse'f was as a matter of fact, managing 
editor, business manager, chief editorial writer, and 
sometimes reporter. He trusted his men, but he 
always knew exactly what they were doing, and he 
saw that they did their work as he wanted it done. 
Thus he has built up a paper of personality, which 
puts the seal of itself on even the most trivial piece 
of news. 

From the beginning it was seen that Daniels is going 
to be managing editor of the Navy. He has already 
seen a real battleship target practice. He has already 
begun his tour of inspection of the nation's navy yards. 
It would be impossible for Jo Daniels to be a figure- 
head Secretary of anything. He wants to know how 
the whole plant is run. He will come as near finding 
out, too, as any man President Wilson could have 
found. In other words, Jo is interested in his job. 
He is interested in everything he comes into con- 
tact with. 

The ancient chart in the Registrar's office picturing 
the number of high offices that have been filled by 
University men will have to come down for a pleasant 




Hannis Taylor was born at Newbern, N. C, Sep- 
tember 12, 185 1. His father was Richard Vipon 
Taylor, his mother, Susan Stevenson, representatives 
of families settled at Newbern long prior to the Revo- 
lution. The records show that Joseph Hannis made a 
deed to Craven County as early as 1737. Mary Han- 
nis, the paternal grandmother of Hannis Taylor, who 
is buried in the cemetery at Chapel Hill, described to 
him as an eye-witness the visit General Washington 
made to Newbern just after the close of his second 
term as President. The Stevensons were among the 
settlers who came by way of Virginia; William 
Taylor, who married Mary Hannis, was a Scotch lad 
who came directly from Paisley with his brother 
Isaac. An account of his Scotch ancestry was given 
by the subject of this sketch in the speech made by 
him at his laureation in the University of Edinburg. 

After the evacuation of Newbern, early in the Civil 
War, the Taylor family purchased a residence at 
Chapel Hill, where Hannis began his classical educa- 
tion, with Hoke Smith as a schoolfellow, under the 
tutelage of Mrs. Cornelia Phillips Spencer, to whom 
he was tenderly devoted down to the day of her death. 
After further instruction at the then famous prepara- 
tory schools of Dr. Wilson and Mr. Lovejoy, Hannis 
Taylor entered the University of North Carolina, 
where he remained during the freshman year. His 
father's business reverses then forced him to begin 
prematurely and without adequate preparation the 
study of law at Newbern, in the office of the cultured 
John N. Washington. Before his first year of study 
was over the Taylor family removed to Mobile, Ala., 
where Hannis Taylor was admitted to practice in the 
lower courts shortly after his eighteenth birthday. In 
a few months he was appointed State's attorney of an 
adjoining county, and before he was twenty-one he 
was admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of 
Alabama, where he was engaged to argue an import- 
ant case involving a grave question of Constitutional 
law. His adversary was Robert H. Smith, the then 
acknowledged leader of the Alabama bar, who was 
born at Edenton, N. C. The youthful advocate lost 
his case, but a few years later the court reversed its 
decision in order to maintain the principle for which 
he had contended. 

Hannis Taylor says that his resolve to write the his- 
tory of "The Origin and Groivth of the English Con- 

stitution," a task to which he devoted himself for 
thirty years, was the outcome of the intensely Englnsh 
environment in which he was born — an environment 
saturated with a knowledge of English history, Eng- 
lish literature, and English law. After fifteen years 
of work appeared his first volume, which was received 
with acclamation throughout the English-speaking 
world. The University of Dublin, by a formal vote 
of its senate, adopted it as a text-book, and gave its 
author its honorary IX. D. Montagu Burrows, 

Chichele professor of modern history at < (xford, said: 
"No other book exhibits so clear a view of the English 
Constitution, broadening down from precedent to 
precedent"; |ohn Fiske said it "is evidently a master- 
piece"; the Boston Advertiser said: "The most thor 
ough, the most scientific, and most readable work upon 
the origin of our institutions which has yel appeared 
or is likely to appear." It is now in the eighth edition. 

I [2 


Determined to live at Washington, in order to prac- 
tice in the highest national tribunal, Mr. Taylor pub- 
lished in 1905 his "Jurisdiction and Procedure of the 
Supreme Court of the United States," upon which 
Chief Justice Fuller, and Justices Harlan, Brewer, 
Peckham, and Day have bestowed the highest praise. 
Justice Harlan wrote : "It is most admirable in every 
way, and will become a necessity to every lawyer who 
practices in our court, or who prepares a case which 
may come here for final determination." Then fol- 
lowed in 1908 The Science of Jurisprudence, "a 
treatise in which the growth of positive law is unfolded 

As a recognition of bis fame thus won. President 
Cleveland appointed I Iannis Taylor as .Minister to 
Spain. There he completed his second volume, pub- 
lished just after his return, of which the Review of 
Reviews said: "The completion of the second volume 
rounds out one of the most important recent achieve- 
ments Of American scholarship." A large number of 
American universities, including his alma mater, con- 
ferred upon the successful author the LL.D. degree. 

For four years and a half 1 Iannis Taylor was on 
duty at Madrid, without a single leave of absence, 

during the critical period of the war between Cuba and by the historical method, and its elements classified 

Spain. So bitter was the feeling against this country an( j defined by the analytical." So marked was the 

at that time that his house was guarded by Spanish impression made in Europe by this work that the 

soldiers, night and day, for more than two years. His famous French jurist Rodolphe Dareste made a formal 

reward was the unqualified thanks and approval of the presentation of it to the Institute of France, while in 

Cleveland and MeKinley administrations. During Germany it was applauded by Dr. Rudolph Sohm and 

those four years and a half of arduous diplomacy he 
composed his now famous work on "International 
I } ublic Law" characterized by the Harvard /.ate 
Review as "the best American work since Wheaton." 
The London Laze Quarterly Review has said that "this 
book is, probably on the whole, the fullest treatise in 
the language on its subject." It brought to its author 
the honorary LL.D. of the University of Edinburg, 
At his laureation there Sir Ludovic Grant, professor 
of international law, in his speech, said: "I do not 
hesitate to say that Dr. Hannis Taylor's Interna- 
tional Public Law, replete with historical learning, 
characterized by philosophical breadth of view, and 
distinguished for the classical stateliness of its diction, 
entitles its author to a conspicuous place in a galaxy 
which includes the names of Wheaton and Kent and 
Ilalleck, of Woolsey and Dudley Field." The new- 
kind of reputation thus won induced the government 
at Washington to employ Mr. Taylor to assist in the 
argument of its cases before the Spanish Treaty Claims 
Commission, and before the Alaskan Boundary Com- 
mission at London. After his notable argument there, 
the Iaizc Ti)ncs said: "Mr. Hannis Taylor, 

who ha- just concluded his argument on behalf of the 
United States before the Alaska Boundary Commis- 
sion, is one of the most eminent jurists of the present 
generation, and has not merely a theoretical but a 
practical knowledge of international practice and 
equity, lie is the author of a work of monumental 
learning which is a standard hook of reference and 
cited as an acknowledged authority before all inter- 
national tribunals, The Treatise on International 
Public Law." 

Dr. von L. Mitteis, the most eminent jurists in the 
University of Lcipsic. The latter wrote as follows: 
"I began immediately with the reading of the book, 
and am enthralled by it. The idea of representing the 
operation of Roman and English law in universal his- 
torical relations is as fruitful as it is splendid, and I 
have found in your book a great deal of instruction and 
inspiration. It is a work whose study appeals to the 
heart of every man. I, as a Romanist, am particularly 
delighted to find a comprehensive appreciation of the 
lasting and immortal significance of the Roman law in 
the most distant regions, and have found in it a mass 
of facts with which 1 was unfamiliar. The combina- 
tion of English and Roman elements of law which you 
portray is most interesting, and only a scholar who 
possesses an almost incomprehensible knowledge of 
both systems of law could produce such a work. The 
breadth of your view has at all times excited my won- 

The crowning work of Mr. Taylor's life, for which 
all that preceded was a preparation, is "The Origin 
and Growth of the American Constitution, an histori- 
cal treatise in which the documentary evidence as to the 
making of the entirely new plan of federal govern- 
ment embodied in the existing constitution of the 
United States is, for the first time, set forth as a com- 
plete and consistent whole." Out of the mass of com- 
mendations bestowed upon this work the following 
estimate, made by the Boston Herald, may be accepted 
as typical: ,111 as a whole, it is the most notable 

work on the Constitution of the United States that has 
yet been written. Long ago 'The Origin and Growth 



of the English Constitution' won for itself a perma- 
nent place in the literature of the world. The sequel to 
that work, 'The Origin and Growth of the American 
Constitution', promises to eclipse the reputation of its 
predecessor." The Nation has said: "The story of 
the origin of the Constitution must henceforth be told 
in the light of what Mr. Taylor very properly regards 
as a discovery, and for his own connection with that 
discovery he is entitled to hearty praise." The 
Journal of Commerce has said : "The distinctive value 
of the present volume lies in the fact that the author 

has discovered and here places in its true light, for the 
first time, the document out of which our constitution 
grew — the Pelatiah Webster pamphlet.'' The North 
Carolina Review has said ; "A notable work present- 
ing the story of our federal constitution in a wholly 
new light which will probably revolutionize methods of 
studying constitutional history." As a writer on gov- 
ernment and law, .Mr. Taylor has bad no failures. 
Each of his five works has taken its place among the 
foremost in the sphere to which it belongs. 

Debating Union Brings Most Successful Movement to Climax 

final were Pleasant Garden on the affirmative and 

Sixty-four high-school debaters, representing six- 
teen North Carolina high schools, gathered in Chapel 
Hill Thursday and Friday, March 6 and 7, for 
the first annual final contest of the High School 
Debating Union of North Carolina. Out of 
the ninety schools and 360 debaters who dis- 
cussed the "Woman Suffrage for North Caro- 
lina" question on February 21, there were nineteen 
that succeeded in winning both sides of the debates, 
and so were entitled to send their representatives to 
Chapel Hill for the finals. Sixteen schools availed them- 
selves of this privilege, and sent their teams here. The 
coming of these boys to the University to contest for 
the Aycock Memorial Cup was an event of signifi- 
cance. It was significant of the larger life of the Uni- 
versity in the State — of the interlacing of the upper 
and lower parts of the State's educational system. 

To Messrs. Grady Bowman and Samuel C. Hodgin, 
the affirmative speakers for Pleasant Garden High 
School, of Guilford County, belongs the proud honor 
of winning out over the other sixty-two debaters who 
were here. After they had won out in the two pre- 
liminaries, Friday night in Chapel they were pitted 
against Messrs. Henry Greenberg and David Brady, of 
Durham, on the negative side, and were victorious. 
Their names, together with the name of their school, 
will be inscribed on the Aycock Cup. 

Previous to this final debate, two preliminaries were 
held. Thursday night the sixty-four debaters were 
divided into four sections for the first preliminary. 
From these sections four teams were chosen on either 
side for the second preliminary Friday morning. These 
four teams on either side were: affirmative, Pleasanl 
Garden, Durham, Holly Springs, and Graham; nega- 
tive, Durham, Holly Springs, Morganton, and II aw 
fields. From these teams the two chosen for the 

Durham on the negative. 


Rarely has there been seen in Gerrard Hall a larger 
or more enthusiastic crowd than gathered there Friday 
night to witness this final contest for the Aycock 
Memorial Cup. Fully eight hundred people were 
jammed into the building. As the teams entered the 
Hall there came from one side a hearty Kali. Rah for 
Durham, while from the other side there came a 
resounding yell for Pleasant Garden. 

Prof. E. K. Graham presided over the debate, and 
E. R. Rankin acted as secretary. The debate itself 
was of the inter-coregiate caliber. Kspecially effec- 
tive was Mr. Samuel C. Hodgin. the second speaker 
for Pleasant Garden. In native ability, and for 
rough and ready power in debating it would be 
difficult, if not indeed impossible, to find bis superior 
in an_\' college in the State. 

The query was the same that bad been discussed in 
the triangular debates in the ninety high schools scat- 
tered over North Carolina, "Resolved, That the C 

StitUtion of North Carolina should be SO amended as 

to allow women to vote under the same qualifications 
as men.'' 

Pleasanl Garden had the affirmative, and Durham 
the negative. Mr. Grad) Bowman was the first 
speaker for the affirmative. 

Mr. Bowman argued that the idea that women \- 
inferior to nun was a relic of barbarism. The nation 
which gives the most liberties to women is the mosl 
civilized, lie showed that the ballot would not d< 

women from the rare of the home and raising children. 

Women can do many things without the ballot, hut 
they could do more with it. 



Mr. Henry Greenberg was the first speaker on the 
-live. He admitted that woman suffrage might 
be right in some States, and in a small degree in 
North Carolina, but not "under the same qualifications 
men." He argued that woman would not better 
conditions with the ballot, and he pleaded that she 
lie kept out of the strife of politics. 

Mr. S. C. Hodgin was the second speaker for the 
affirmative. He was as much at home as a seasoned 
stump speaker. 1 1c argued that woman represents the 
sentimental and moral side of human nature, and 
would be a good addition to the ballot. Physical force 
shou'd not and does not prevail, and the ability to bear 
arms should not count. If physical force prevailed, 
■•lack Johnson," he declared, "would be President of 

who were Dr. C. L, Raper, Dr. H. W. Chase, Prof. 
H. H. Williams, Prof. M. H. Stacy, and Rev. W. T. 
D. Moss, voted separately. The votes were taken by 
Professor Graham, and were turned over to Prof. W. 
S. Bernard, himself an old inter-collegiate Carolina 
debater, to whom had been assigned the pleasant task 
of awarding the Aycock Memorial Cup. Professor 
Bernard announced that the decision of the judges 
was for the affirmative. In presenting the cup, he 
told of the splendid record for the Di and Phi, and 
expressed the hope, which was the conviction of the 
Hall, that in awarding it to Pleasant Garden the 
judges had awarded it to worthy keepers. 

After the awarding of the cup. a reception was ten- 
dered all of the visitors in the V. M. C. A. building. 


the United States." Morality and intelligence is the 
real basis for suffrage. 

Mr. David Brady was the last speaker on the nega- 
tive. He contended that woman suffrage in the West- 
ern States had been a complete failure. The condi- 
tions in the suffrage States are no better than in those 
adjoining. He cited quotations from Roosevelt, Bryce, 
and others to prove this. He contended that North 
Carolina had no business to take up sufferage for 
women — that it didn't need it at all here. 

The rejoinders were spirited on both sides. The 
applause was frequent when the debaters dug into 
their adversaries both in their first speeches and in 

After the speeches were over, Professor Graham 
called on the judges for their decision. The judges, 


Walter Stokes, Jr., president of the Senior Class, was 
master of ceremonies. The reception was delightful 
in its informality and in the spirit of common under- 
standing which it expressed. 

No small part of the great success of this final con- 
test is due to the County Clubs and the Greater Coun- 
cil, which two organizations had complete charge of 
entertaining the guests. The plan of having each 
County Club entertain those who were from their 
county was followed out. The high-school boys were 
thus enabled to get a taste of college life, and the 
principals who accompanied the boys were enabled to 
get a glimpse of life that was a remembrance of their 
old days. Baseball games, an auto ride, trips to the 
Pickwick — these were among the pleasant features 


1 1 

provided for in the entertainment line. A picture of 
the whole group was taken. This picture is seen in 
The Tar Heel, The Alumni Review, and High School 


The Debating Union, as provided for by the Di and 
Phi Societies, is to be a permanent affair. This year 
its success was phenomenal. Letters from superin- 
tendents all over the State express approval of the 
Societies' work in extending their aid to the high 
schools. Every high school in the State is invited to 
become a member of the Union next year. Already a 
committee is planning for the enlarged usefulness of 
the Union for next year. The great success this time 
and the benefit to 360 high-school pupils are but fore- 
runners of still larger achievements in the future.

A Review 

Some books are of interest to all ; some to only a 
particular class or vocation; some especially to a par- 
ticular class but, in a lesser degree, to everyone. Ut 
this last class is Dr. Kemp P. Battle's History of the 
University of North Carolina. To University men, 
it is of especial interest and value. But to the public 

mencement of 1912. The price is three dollars per 

To alumni who have been in college since the reopen- 
ing in 1875, these volumes have a peculiar interest, 
apart from their historical matter, for in the style of 
every page one sees the personality of the author. The 

at large it will be of great worth, especially as deal- reader must pause from his reading every now and 
ing with the history of the State and nation in which then, and say to himself, with a smile coupled with 
the University has played so prominent a part. The some pleasant recollection: "Old Pres." Me feels 

first volume, published in 1907 by Edwards & Brough- 
ton Printing Company, Ra'cigh, 880 pages, tells the 
story of the University from 1789 to 1868. The sec- 
ond, 875 pages, printed by the same publishers within 
the last few months, continues this story to the com- 

tliat he is again sitting on the hard benches In tne 
"( )ld West," listening to a lecture in I [istor) 6. 

Dr. Battle, who for more than a half-century has 
been so close' v associated with every movement, large 

and small, in which his alma mater ha- been concerned, 



its only its own State but for many others as well. Stu- 

L ,, of course, the one nun peculiarly fitted to tell it _ ^ ^ 

story The larger part comes first hand. But that 
of Volume one which deals with events before 
the author's association with the University indicates 
a most thorough and comprehensive study of original 
documents. As the compilation of the data has been 
the labor of several years, a labor of love, the author 
was enabled to gather a fund of information which 
others would think did not exist. 

The beginnings of the University are fully told. \/\ e 
learn the spirit which impelled our people to require, 
ir the Constitution of 1776. that "all useful learning 
shall be duly encouraged and promoted in one or more 
universities" ; the efforts of those pioneers who labored 


with Davie for the charter of 1789 and for funds with 
which to erect the Old East Building in 1793; tne 
continuations of these efforts for funds to support the 
infant institution. We are told of how the idea of 
State education was then in its infancy, and how 
problems had to be solved without precedent to guide. 
A.s pioneers in education blazed the trail, others, 
equally active and zealous, followed the path, some- 
times with success, sometimes with failure, but on the 
whole with decided advancement. 

As the University of North Carolina was for many 
years the only institution of its kind in the South, it 
became the center of culture and scholarship for not 

their training from scholars who ranked with the best 
in the country. They left Chapel Hill to play their 
parts in this and other States. All this is told in the 
pleasing style so peculiar to the author. No little 
detail of student life, no material fact concerning the 
alumnus in his life's work, seems to have been over- 
looked. Not only do we read the history of the Uni- 
versity, from the larger concerns of its administration 
and its relation to the State, but we read also the his- 
tory of North Carolina and the other States in which 
alumni played their part. 

It is but natural that we find the ante-bellum Uni- 
versity colored by the social conditions of the "Old 
South." A large number of its students came from 
the slave-holding and office-holding class. Chapel Hill 
society therefore had an air of that genuine aristocracy 
which was the best asset of what we call the "chival- 
rous South." Likewise its graduates, of necessity, 
became leaders in a society essentially political. As 
he reads the first volume, the alumnus must feel pride 
in hearing of how vitally the University influ- 
enced the political and social conditions of the South 
prior to the war. 

But as those conditions were destined to change, and 
undergo a reconstruction, through much tribulation, 
so was the University. Trying heroically, but vainly, 
to stem the merciless tide of opposition to all things 
representing the society of the "Old South," the Uni- 
versity was forced to close its doors. But as sleep is 
necessary to an awakening, so the temporary suppres- 
sion of scholarship was a necessary prerequisite to the 
New University, the University of the "clearer air 
and the larger view," the University representing not 
the self-centered culture of the Old South, but the 
active, busy, progressive spirit of the New South; not 
the Greek and Latin of the ante-bellum statesman, 
but the science and practical learning of the modern 
man of affairs. The institution was merely changing 
with the country and the times. And as a war marks 
the sudden change of spirit of the one, so it does ot 
the other. This is the story told in Volume two. And 
as Dr. Battle, more than anyone else, has influenced 
and directed the life of the New University, it is he 
that can tell, and has told, it best. 

Perhaps for the first time has been told in detail 
the causes for closing the institution, and the untiring 
efforts for its reopening, the political struggles which 
had to be fought out, and the contests between oppos- 
ing factions. While Dr. Battle tells this story in 



full, lie tells it without harshness or unkind criticism. 
A here he feels impelled to comment adversely on the 
acts of some man, he frequently states the facts, but 
does not give the name. It may be this is not the best 
way to write a history, but it is the best way to avoid 
wounding one's feelings, or perpetuating the errors 
of the dead. 

Another interesting feature of the second volume 
is the recounting of the several efforts made to induce 
the Legislature to cut off appropriations. The story 
of these short-sighted policies of certain religious 
denominations is told without acrimony, but often by 
the printing in full of many original documents used 
on both sides in the several contests. 

The history is pleasingly interspersed with anec- 
dotes and stories of student pranks and amusing inci- 
dents at Chapel Hill. The history of the village and 
its well-remembered characters is delightfully pre- 
served. The college yells and songs are printed in 
full, in so far as they have been preserved. We are 
told of the many college publications and societies, of 
changes in the curriculum, of the government of stu- 
dent life, of the idiosyncracies of the faculty, of their 
nicknames, of the summer schools, of other schools 
not strictly a part of, but incident to, the University, 
of the walks and woods around Chapel Hill, and of 
the birds in Battle's Park. We can hardly think of 
Dr. Battle without thinking of his birds. 

Throughout the work we have abundant information 
concerning those who have been the University's chief 

supporters. As we read, our admiration increases 

Davie, Caldwell. .Mitchell, the Philipses, Swain, the 
I [oopers, Graham, Cameron, and a host of others, liv- 
ing and dead. We get an acquaintance with these men 
that cannot be obtained elsewhere. Those who know 
Dr. Battle, know how he can tell of the little charac- 
teristics of men, which escape the ordinary historian, 
yet make a biography. His history is a library of 
I Ihiversity biography. 

The work will be read by University men with a 
peculiar and increasing interest, and will furnish val- 
uable aid to the student of State history. Neither can 
afford to be without it. While it is not such a book 
as will be read straight through, it is one which wilt 
furnish abundant pleasure when read piecemeal, and 
abundant information as a work of reference. Its 
appendices a 1 one are worth the price, as they give in 
tabulated form a short history of those who have 
administered the University and those who have 
received instruction. The article by Dr. Joel Whita- 
ker on "University Athletics" will be of interest to the 
students of recent years. 

No book is complete without a good index, and in 
this the history is very fortunate. 

For this work every University man owes a debt 
of gratitude to the author, who, after giving the besl 
of his life to his alma mater, in active service, retired 
to a labor of love in writing its history.

The New Home of the School of Education Will be Opened in May 

Peabody Hall, the most recently erected building on being completed, and a program of wide interest has 

the campus, will be formally dedicated on May 2, and 
the School of Education, with Prof. M. C. S. Noble 
as its recently-elected Dean, will on that date begin 
its larger career of usefulness to the State. In con- 
nection with the dedication of the building, there will 
be held a three days' conference for all workers in lot lying between Commons and the residence belong 

been tentatively decided upon. 

The wvw building, whose opening is t" he thus tit- 
tingly celebrated, is the gift of the Peabody Educa- 
tional Board, anil represents the expenditure of $40,- 
000. It stands near Commons Hall, in the spacious 

North Carolina secondary schools. 

In addition to being the occasion on which the Uni- 
versity opens the doors of its new educational build- 
ing — the realization of a long-delayed and much- 
desired wish — the event will mark the homecoming of 
many alumni teachers, and will bring to the University 
many distinguished visitors from other colleges and 
universities. Final plans for the event are rapidly 

ing to Mrs. Graves, li faces Cameron Wenue, and 

has been so located that the proposed practice school 

and any other additional buildings which it ma} 
desirable to conned with it may be erected according 
to a well conceived general plan. In exterior is highly 

pleasing, and its interior is admirably adapted to the 
general and special USeS to which it i< to he put.

From a season of eleven games, Carolina emerges 
triumphant in only four, not a very satisfying record. 
The team was erratic. Against Virginia Polytechnic 
Institute it worked with the precision and accuracy 
of a machine; but on foreign floors it seemed to lose 
the greater part of its skill. It is a striking fact that 
of the seven games lost, five were played away from 
Chapel Hill. Not a single game was won on the road. 

With the exception of the Guilford game, none ol 
the defeats was by a large margin. Virginia and A. 
and M. won, 30 to 19 and 26 to 18, respectively. Both 
games were played in Rakigh. The first half of the 
Virginia game ended with a tie score, 15 to 15. The 
teams were pretty evenly matched, and it looked to 
be anybody's game. In the first few minutes of the 
second half, Redmon, one of the Carolina guards, was 
put out of the game for roughness. Carolina imme- 

diately went up in the air, and Virginia, taking advan- 
tage of every miscue, ran away with the game. 

The A. and M. contest, the first real meeting of the 
two State institutions in seven years, proved conclu- 
sively that basket-ball has come into its own in this 
State. Nearly 2,500 people jammed into the Ra'eigh 
Auditorium and cheered a contest that for speed and 
excitement has rarely been equaled. Both teams 
seemed to realize the significance of the game, and 
each strove for first blood in the new era of athletics 
between A. and M. and the University. Though hard 
fought, the game was clean and sportsmanlike in every 
respect. A. and M. played well, and deserved the 

The two Wake Forest games were both close. The 
one at Wake Forest, which was lost, 22 to 2T. was the 
roughest of the year. At the end of the second half, 
the score stood 20 to 20. A five-minute period of play 


was added, and the Baptists snatched the victory. At 
Chapel Hill, Carolina had her revenge, 19 to 15. Caro- 
lina held the lead from the start, though in the sec- 
ond half the score was dangerously close. 

Elon won on her home floor, 23 to 19. Carolina dis- 
played the poorest form of the season, and in addi- 
tion was handicapped by an unusual floor. The first 
Elon game was won easily. 

The regular line-up of the team was Long and Til- 
lett, forwards; Carrington, center; Redmon and Cap- 
tain Chambers, guards. Homewood, Ranson, and 


Parker substituted at various times. Tillett and Car- 
rington, the two most valuable players, will be lost by 
graduation, but Long, Redmon, and Chambers will be 
back, and practically all the substitutes and second 
team men. 

The season's complete record is given below. It 
will be noted that though only four games were won, 
Carolina's total score exceeds that of her opponents, 
271 to 228.

Carolina's victory over the Carlisle Indians in a 
two-mile relay race at the Georgetown Indoor Games, 
March 1, was one of the most notable track events in 
Carolina history. Whiting, Hazel Patterson, Spence, 
and Captain Earl Patterson, composing the team, 
showed up in splendid form, and reflected great credit 
on the University and on Nat Cartmell, their coach. 

Whiting led off for Carolina, and at the end of his 
half-mile was a few yards behind his redskin oppon- 
ent. Hazel Patterson, taking up the race, ran in great 
style. He regained the distance, and touched off 
Spence with a five-yard lead. Spence not only he'd 
this lead, but picked up three yards more, and gave 
Captain Patterson an eight-yard margin. "Pat" had 
a hard struggle, but managed to hold the lead, and 
crossed the line two yards a winner. The time. S:47, 
is considered good for the track conditions, and was 
only three seconds slower than Yale's time over 
Princeton that same night. 

The warm weather of February and March brought 
out a host of track candidates, and Coach Cartmell is 
kept busy every afternoon. Seven Varsity nun are on 
the squad. Another veteran, Wakeley, the quarter- 
miler, is being held off by his studies, but lie may <m> 
later. The old men are well distributed over the dif- 
ferent events, and there is every prospect of a well 
balanced team. Sears in the sprints. Spence in the 
half, Patterson in the mile, Cobb in the two-mile, 
Strong in the pole vault. Woolcotl in the high jump 
and hurdles, and I'.lalock in the broad jump and hur- 
dles are all experienced men who have nol yel reached 
the height of their development. < >n their shoulders 
will fall the burden of the season's work. 

Cose upon them arc three men who, barring acci- 
dents, should make good: Whiting, Ranson. and Hazel 
Patterson, all distance men. Whiting and Ranson 
were nn lasl year's squad, but they have improved 
until they are 'Varsity material. Patterson is a Fresh- 
man, brother of Captain Patterson; he seems destined 

1 JO 


to extend the notable achievements of the family. All 
three of these men ran on the cross-country team 
inst A. and M. in the fall, and Whiting and Pat- 
terson ran on the relay team against the Carlisle 
Indians. The distance events, therefore, seem 
unusually well taken care of. Ranson, in addition, is 
a promising , aulter. and will make a capable 

assistant to Strong. 

From the large number of other candidates there 
loom up many possibilities. Mebane, Tayloe, and 
DeVane are leaders in the sprints; and Harrison, 
Scott, and Robinson look promising in the mile. 
Struthers and Blair have shown good form in the 
hurdles. Parker from last year's squad and Cox are 


putting the shot, while Axley, Homewood, and Ervin 
are throwing the hammer. Discus throwing, a new 
feature, has attracted much attention, Parker and 
flogan being the most promising men. The only weak 
event is the quarter, and that may be remedied if 
Wakeley comes out. 

Thi ule calls for the following meets: 

March 28 Inter-Class Meet, at Chapel Hill 

April 5 A. and M., at Raleigh 

April 12 Washington and Lee, at Chapel Hill 

April 26 State Meet, at Raleigh

started on the Hill. He looked over the sixty-odd 

aspirants, shoved them through the preliminaries, and 
annexed the "can" to all save thirty. Bowers handles 
the men with an experienced hand, and he has our 

One marked feature of this season's workout is the 
fight for jobs. There is a place for Captain Edwards, 
and one for Leak at first. At every other corner, in 
the box. -and out in the field, there is action. The 
catchers are Stubbs, Long. G. M., Heart, and Knowles. 
On the mound, Tom Craven, a veteran of Oak Ridge, 
Foust, Graves, and Aycock are struggling. Xorris is 
on Leak's trail for first. Field and Rousseau are after 
second. Hussean, a youngster, handles himself with 
ease and has a good hitting eye. Captain Edwards 
has shifted to short this season, and there is a feeling 
of satisfaction to watch him scoop 'em up and pull 'em 
down around his territory. \Yil'iams. a Senior, and 
Lewis, of the All-State prep, team, are having it out 
at third. In the outfield, are Long, a class team star, 
Johnson, a letter man of Gui'ford. Thompson of 
Trinity. Zollicofter, of Warrenton High School, Nance, 
and Bailey. Long, Johnson, and Thompson have 
shown best form at the bat so far. In addition to 
these, there are on the field Redmon, Hatcher. Ken- 
nedy. Garrison. Williams, W. M. Bailey, the second 
baseman of last year, bad bis suit on for the first time 
Thursday. He has been laid up with a strained liga- 
ment. The youngsters will find it hard to keep him 
out of his old position. With such rivalry it is hard to 
dope about the team. Everyone is anxious to see 
whom Bowers will select to start the season of T'M.v 
Friday, the fourteenth, was the appointed day. and 
Earl Holt had journeyed down to start things off, but 
he had to return with only a rain guarantee. So 
the season commences in Greensboro, on Wednesday, 
the nineteenth, with Princeton.

scores a distinct triumph for the law school in a con- 
test of such keen and capable competition throughout 
the Union. So keen was the rivalry for the prizes 
offered in the contest that the editor of the magazine 



in the March number makes the point that in some 
places members of the Supreme Court presided, dis- 
trict attorneys prosecuted, and newspaper men were 
the alleged criminals. In awarding the prizes, the 
judges considered points of comparative excellence on 
this basis: (a) The way the mock trial was held; (b) 
the way the verdict was arrived at; (c) the way the 
report was made. Reports of the various trials were 
submitted to a committee of lawyers, consisting of 
Chas. S. Whitman, district attorney of New York; 
Herbert Noble and J. B. Sheenan, attorneys for well- 
known publishing firms, for the passing of judgment 
as to the winners of the contest. . 

The trial by the University law class began on 
December 14, and embraced two days' time, and 
throughout the trial marked interest was in evidence 
by the five hundred hearers that followed the legal 
battle from start to finish. The entire procedure of 
the court assumed proportions of a real murder trial ; 
the judge ruling with as firm decision as if a life were 
at stake ; the array of counsel was sharply drawn, and 
the clash between the attorneys in their final appeals 
to the jury will be memorable in the moot proceedings 
of the University law school. Thus the fitting recog- 
nition of the northern magazine of the legal talent dis- 
played in the mock trial by the awarding of the first 
State prize is only in keeping with North Carolina's 
record to lead the way in work of brain or hand. 

This is one of the most successful contests in the 
fifty or more years of the history of the law depart- 
ment of the University, and there is general rejoicing 
by members of the law class and members of the law 
faculty over the gratifying announcement. Credit is 
duly attached to the following members of the law 
school : Horace E. Stacey, of Maxton ; James W. Mor- 
ris, of Tampa, Fla. ; John W. Hester, of Hester ; W. L. 
Warlick, of Newton; George H. Ward, of Waynes- 
ville; L. A. Swicegood, of Salisbury; W. F. Taylor, of 
Faison, and J. J. Henderson, of Mebane. 

The presiding judge was Prof. P. H. Winston, of 
the University law faculty; court reporter, S. R.

The Daughters of the Confederacy Erect a Monument on 
the Campus in Their Honor 

On Monday, June 2, of Commencement week, the 
North Carolina Division of the Daughters of the Con- 
federacy will unveil a monument in memory of all the 
University men who entered the service of the Con- 

federacy from 1861 to 1865. Tbe monument will be 
erected in the campus at a spot about half-way between 
Alain Street and the Caldwell .Monument, and in a line 
with the latter monument and the well — the median 
line of the campus. It will commemorate the heroic 
service of more than fifteen hundred University men, 
living and dead, who left the l'nivcrsity prior to the 
war and later entered service, or who went directly 
from the l'nivcrsity into the field. 

The monument has been designed by a Canadian 
sculptor, John Wilson, and will be very beautiful. The 
front die will bear a bronze tablet depicting a woman 
— the country entreating a young student to take up 
arms for his commonwealth. Books are falling from 
the youth's arms as in evident agitation he listens to 
her appeal. The figure surmounting the shaft, that of 
a young soldier, the soft felt hat pushed back from 
his brow, enthusiasm in every line of his face, repre- 
sents the call answered. On the reverse side will be 
another tablet reciting the number of University stu- 
dents who from first to last enlisted in the cause. 

Standing on the campus for all time the monument 
will ever be to all future generations an object lesson 
of service rendered and duty performed, and it wi'l 
impress upon them their obligation to be faithful to 
the record of the past. 

The monument is being erected under the ausp: 
of the North Carolina Division of the Daughters of 
the Confederacy and will cost ten thousand dollars. 
Preparations are being made for a large attendance of 
veterans and University friends at the unveiling, and 
Mrs. Henry A. London, of Pittsboro, chairman of the 
committee on arrangements, announces that the 
speaker for the occasion will be His Excellency, Gov. 
Locke Craig. The monument is being placed 
now and the Daughters of the Confederacy and the 
University will honor themselves by doing this honor 
to the boys who wore the gray. 

The Student Council 
The Student Council, the organ of student self- 

government at the University, has taken two important 

Steps this year in deciding to keep open to the student 
body a record of its deliberations and by organizing 
the Greater Council, which is composed of two rep- 
resentatives from each of the academic clas^e<, one 
horn e-uli of the professional Schools, one from tile 

graduate school, and the regular council. 

[n former years the council has held its nicer 
and taken action in the cases coming before it 
without the full knowledge of the -indent body, 

1 22 


frequently causing criticism by the students, who 
could not find the grounds for the decisions 
reached. When a student is brought before the council 
now, he is given the name of his accuser, and the wit- 
nesses for and against him. All of the evidence is 
recorded, and is subject to investigation by the. stu- 
dents, tints eliminating all possibility of unfairness on 
the part of the council or of unjust criticism on the 
part of the student body. 

The Greater Council has been organized with twenty 
members. The two representatives from each of the 
four academic classes and one representative from each 
of the other schools in the University meet with the 
regular council on the first and third Monday nights 
each month, or oftener if necessary, for the purpose 
of discussing college problems and for devising means 
for the betterment of existing college conditions. Com- 
plaints and grievances are heard from anyone desiring 
a hearing, and remedies are offered. The Greater 
Council is the natural outgrowth of a long felt need in 
college life, and serves as a strong tie between the 
various classes. As a result the student body is more 
unified and greatly strengthened. 

The plan of electing the class officers and represen- 
taatives who compose the regular council in the spring 
preceding their term of office is being tried for the 
first time this year and is proving beneficial. Under 
this arrangement it is possible for the council to organ- 
ize and take up its work early in the fall term when 
there is special need of its service. 

The members of the regular council for this year 
are as follows : President, Walter Stokes, Jr., of 
Nashville, Tenn., president of the senior class; Secre- 
tary, D. H. Carlton, of Kernersville, president of the 
junior class; Phillip Woolcott, of Raleigh, president 
of the sophomore class; A. L. Hamilton, of Atlantic, 
representative from the student body; W. G. Harry, 
of Grover. senior elected by the council ; F. P. Graham, 
of Charlotte, law representative; J. N. Tolar, of San- 
ford, Fla., from the second year medical class; and 
C. L. Cox, of Warsaw, from the second year phar- 
macy class. The Greater Council is composed of the 
students named above and .representatives from the 
various classes as follows: senior class, G. B. Phillips, 
of Trinity, and M. T. Spears, of Lillington ; junior 
class, S. W. Whiting, of Raleigh, and J. L. Chambers, 
of Charlotte; sophomore class. YV. P. Fuller, of 
Bradentown, Fla., and T. C. Boushall, of Raleigh; 
freshman class, B. P. Beard, of Salisbury, and C. W. 

Beckwith, of Raleigh; medical school, J. S. Milliken, 
of Pittsboro; school of pharmacy, J. H. Henderson, 
of Hickory.

The Rand Hazing Trial 

The trial of R. W. Oldham, A. C. Hatch, W. L. 
Merrimon, and A. H. Styron, the four former Uni- 
versity students charged with manslaughter in con- 
nection with the death of Isaac William Rand, while 
he was being hazed on the night of September 12, was 
held in Hillsboro, March 13, 14, and 15, Judge R. B. 
Peebles presiding. After all the testimony was heard, 
and before the speeches by the attorneys, A. H. Styron 
was released on the ground that no testimony had 
been introduced by the State connecting him with the 
hazing, and a verdict of not guilty was ordered to be 
returned by the jury and entered upon the records. 

In the case of Oldham, Hatch, and Merrimon, after 
testimony and speeches had been concluded, the State 
received a verdict of guilty. In pronouncing sentence, 
Judge Peebles made it clear that while he did not wish 
to be severe, at the same time the demands of the law 
should be met, and to that end imposed upon each of 
the three defendants a sentence of four months' impris- 
onment in the county jail, and costs, with the privilege 
of allowing the County Commissioners to hire them 
out for four months instead of serving the jail sen- 
tence. After the conclusion of the trial, an agreement 
was reached by the defendants and the commissioners 
by which the former students were hired to their 
parents, and the costs of the case were provided for. 

The case consumed three days, and was participated 
in by a large number of attorneys from many parts 
of the State. 

A New Commons 

A new Commons Hall, built in keeping with the 
most approved modern appointments, was decided on 
recently by the Board of Trustees as the next building 
to be erected on the campus. The committee named by 
the Trustees to make plans for the new dining-hall 
met in Chapel Hill on February 25, and made tenta- 
tive arrangements for it. The committee is composed 
of Josephus Daniels, chairman ; J. S. Carr and A. M. 
Scales, from the trustees; F. P. Venable and A. H. 
Patterson, from the faculty. 

The site selected is the plot of ground lying back 
of the University Inn and A. S. Barbee's residence. 
The hall will face towards the New East Building. 
It will be so placed that a driveway from the kitchen 
to the street will pass over but very little of the 

According to the plans, the new building will be an 
ideal dining-hall, fitted with the most modern system 
of cooking, baking, refrigerating, and cleaning. It 

will be large enough for six hundred people on the 
ground floor, with three hundred more in the balcony, 
and it will be so constructed that it may he doubled 
if the growth of the University demands it. The cost 
will be $40,000, the funds coming from the sum of 
$200,000 appropriated by the Legislature two years 
ago, out of which Caldwell Hall and the Battle- Vance- 
Pettigrew Dormitory have already come. 

Mrs. Martha A. Battle "Falls on Sleep" 

Mrs. Martha A. Battle, wife of Dr. K. P. Battle, 
died at her home in Chapel Hill, at 5 o'clock, Sunday 
morning, March 16, after a short illness of pneumonia 
caused by a broken hip received in a fall several 
weeks ago. 

Mrs. Battle was a native of Edgecombe County, ami 
on the fourteenth of February was eighty years of age. 
She was a member of one of the State's most promi- 
nent families, and was married to Dr. Battle over fifty 
years ago. Her home in Chapel lli'l has been one 
from which many fine influences have emanated, and 
she was universally beloved in the community to which 
she and Dr. Battle have contributed so largely for the 
past forty years. 

Mrs. Battle's long life of kindly thoughtfulness of 
others and her beautiful simplicity made her death a 
personal loss to everyone who knew her, and the 
sympathy and love of the entire community go out to 
her husband and family who survive her. 

A simple service was conducted at the Battle home 
in Chapel Hill Tuesday morning and the funeral 
services were held in Christ Church in Raleigh Tues- 
day afternoon, the interment being in Oakwood 

Mrs. Battle is survived by her husband and four 
sons: Dr. K. P. Battle, Jr., of Raleigh; Thomas Battle, 
of Rocky Mount; Herbert Battle, of Montgomery, 
Ala., and Dr. \Y. I. Battle, of the University of Texas. 

The Y. M. C. A. Extends Its Work 
Since the first canvas for membership was made in 
October by the V. M. C. V, the number of members 
has increased from 210 to 325, and includes represen- 
tatives from every part of the University. 

(hie of the best services the Association is render- 
ing is its work in the Sunday Schools around Chapel 
Hill. Twenty students are engaged in this work, and 
participate in the managemenl of seven outlying 
schools. Their activities are nut confined merely to 
teaching, but they help arrange entertainments, p 
vide books and magazines for the pupils, aid in improv- 



ing the singing, and strive in every way possible to 
extend the helpful influences of the Association. 

Special interest centers in the mission work of the 
Association because of the representative in the mis- 
sion field, Mr. E. E. Barnett, of Hangchow, China, to 
whose support the Association contributes $500.00 
annually. Mr. Barnett was General Secretary of the 
Association at Chapel Hill from 1908 to 1910, helped 
Carolina win a Pennsylvania debate, was deeply inter- 
ested in everything affecting the University, and 
touched the life of the University and of the students 
associated with him in a way wholly good. 

C.rantin- that the Y. M. C. A. building is too small 
for the needs of the University, and in that particular 
is inadequate, it is nevertheless the center of college 
life, and has never been so much used by the students 
as at present. The Magazine and the Tar Heel have 
rooms in it ; the Yackety Yack uses it ; all county clubs, 
the dramatic club, the athletic council, the senior class 
meet in it; and the regular religious meetings of the 
Association are held in it. Its reading-room and game- 
room are always occupied, and the students find in it 
more nearly than anywhere else in college the closest 
approach to home life. 

mark the site of the old observatory, while several 
cedars cluster around the spot. 

Dr. Caldwed erected the observatory out of his 
own funds, the cost being $430.2oU. A few days 
lie fore his death the trustees of the University reim- 
bursed him for the amount he paid out. — Chapel Hill 

Only a Few Brickbats Remain 

A good many of our people are not aware, perhaps, 
that the first astronomical observatory connected with 
an institution of learning in America was erected at 
Chapel Hill, yet such is the case. This was built by 
Dr. Joseph Caldwell, the first president of the Uni- 
versity, and was finished in 1831. The second sim- 
ilar observatory was that of Professor Hopkins, at 
Williams College, in 1836. Dr. Caldwell's observa- 
tory was on the summit of the hill, on the left side 
of the Raleigh Road, just before reaching the ceme- 
tery from the town. The structure was about twenty 
feet square, without a portico or entrance hall, and 
with a window in each of its eastern and western faces. 
( )bservations were made there by Dr. Caldwell, Dr. 
Elisha Mitchell, and Dr. James Phillips. Being oi 
faulty materials, the building soon began to show 
signs of decay, and in a few years the instruments 
were removed to other quarters. In [838, the build- 
ing was destroyed by fire, kindled by a student, so 
tradition says. The sound bricks were used to erect a 
kitchen for Pres. David L. Swain, on the lot next to the 
Episcopal Church. Fragments of brickbats and a 
depression in the ground where the basement was still 

The Greater Council Arranges a Track Meet for the High 


At the last meeting of the Greater Council, the prob- 
lem of arranging for a state interscholastic track meet 
for April 11, was taken up. Coach Trenchard, Earl 
Patterson, and the committee who managed the high 
school debate were present by invitation. It was 
decided to make the meet into an annual affair, begin- 
ning this year. A cup and medals will be given. All 
high schools and preparatory schools are eligible to 
enter. Entertainment will be provided by the County 
Clubs and other organizations as in the debate. A 
committee composed of Spears, Whiting, and Fuller 
was appointed to draw up the rules and regulations 01 
the meet, and attend to all preliminary arrangements. 

This committee will be aided by Patterson, McKay, 
and Rankin. While this meet will take place at the 
same time as the district State High-School meet it will 
in no way interfere with it or supersede it. It will be 
managed by the same officials, however. 

The athletic association, alumni, faculty, and student 
body are expected to back up the project financially if 
the admission charges fail to cover expenses. — Tar 
Heel, March 13.

When Old Friends Meet 

The long-desired has at last been consummated. 
Carolina and A. & M., the State University and the 
State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, have 
at last met again in dual athletic contest. And nobody 
was killed ! There was not even a riot ! And why 
should there have been ? Nobody knows, but for many 
years they have said that it was impossible otherwise, 
all the same. The best of good spirit was manifested 
throughout the game. There was only one regretable 
feature about the contest. That was the score. We 
should have preferred for it to have been otherwise; 
but since it wasn't we can only wait until next time. 
And we hope that the next times will come often, and 
come and go with the same fine spirit of clean play 
that attended this time. A. & M., we are glad to meet 
you again! — Tar Heel. 

Dr. William E. Dodd Lectures 
Dr. William E. Dodd, Professor of History in the 
University of Chicago, was a visitor in Chapel Hill 
on Wednesday, February 26, and delivered a lecture 
in Gerrard Hall, on Robert James Walker. This was 
Dr. Dodd's first visit to the University since his con- 
nection with the Summer School in 1904, and he was 
heard with much pleasure in his discussion of what 
he characterized as America's greatest imperialist. In 
addition to being Senator from Mississippi, Walker 
was Secretary of the Treasury under President Polk, 
was the author of the Walker tariff of 1846, and was 
the financial representative of the United States in 
Europe during the Civil War.

Entered at the Postofflce at Charlotte, N. C, as second 
class matter. 


There has recently come to me a most interesting 
and suggestive monograph, which had the power to 
cause me to read it over carefully — twice. It is entitled 
"The Real Authorship of the Constitution of the 
United States Explained," with the sub-title, "James 
Madison and Pelatiah Webster defended by Hannis 
Taylor against attacks contained in Senate Document 
No. 402, etc." This controversy has been projected 
through the publication of Hannis Taylor's History of 
the American Constitution. Attention is called to a 
sketch of Dr. Taylor and his career found in another 
part of this issue of The Review. Dr. Taylor's 
elaborate address before the Literary and Historical 
Association of North Carolina on the subject of 
Pelatiah Webster, several years ago, is remembered 
by many in North Carolina. 

Dr. Taylor contends that Pelatiah Webster's pamph- 
let entitled "A Dissertation on the Political Union 
and Constitution of the Thirteen United States of 
North America'' (reproduced in the present document, 
being Senate Document No. 787), which was printed 
February 16, 1783. contained the epoch-making pro- 
posal for a new Federal system with the independent 
power to tax— an indubitable fact. In furtherance of 

this conception, Webster proposed (1) the division of 
a Federal State into three departments — executive, 
legislative, and judicial; (2) the organization of a 
Federal assembly with two chambers; (3) the exist- 
ing judicial system of the United States, based on the 
supremacy of Federal law ; and (4) that the new Fed- 
eral creation be one of delegated powers, the residu- 
um of power remaining in the States. As early as 
May, 1 78 1, according to James Madison, Webster in a 
pamphlet pointed out the necessity for Congress to 
call a Continental Convention "for the express purpose 
of ascertaining, defining, enlarging, and limiting the 
duties and powers of their Constitution." By a com- 
parison of the 'plans" submitted to the Convention 
of 1787 by Madison, Pinckney, and Hamilton respect- 
ive! v, Dr. Taylor maintains, without confirmatory 
positive evidence, that since all three embodied the 
principal features of Webster's "plan, - ' advanced in 
1783. that Madison, Pinckney, and Hamilton must 
have been directly influenced by 'Webster's pamphlet. 
He consequently pronounces Pelatiah Webster the 
"architect of the Federal Constitution." 

Dr. Taylor bases his contention upon the remarkable 
coincidence of similarity in the four "plans." In 
rebuttal, Mr. Gaillard Hunt, in the Nation (after- 
wards republished as Senate Document No. 402), 
asserts that "Madison's sketch, in which the error of 
attributing the pamphlet to Webster occurred, was 
written by him in extreme old age and was not one 
of the papers which he prepared for posthumous pub- 
lication." Furthermore, Mr. Hunt maintains that 
Webster's pamphlet of 1783 "contains only two 
features which also appear in the Constitution — the 
power of Federal taxation and the bicameral legisla- 
ture — and there were no two principles of government 
better understood in the States at the time Webster 
wrote than these." In Vol. Ill of his History of the 
United States, just from the pros. Professor Chan- 
ning, of Harvard, says: "Professor Farrard, of Yale 
University, has well expressed the opinion of students 
who have generally believed that the American Con- 
stitution would have taken its present form if the 
pamphlet in question had never been written, or indeed, 
if Webster had never lived." It is true that Webster's 
pamphlet appeared four years prior to 17N7; but Dr. 
Taylor is forced to base his case upon a "remarkable 
coincidence." and not upon direct contemporary testi- 
mony to the effect that Webster's plan actually influ- 
enced Madison. Pinckney. or Hamilton. On the docu- 
mentary side, he is only able to adduce the fact that 



Webster and Hamilton became acquainted as early as 
1783. Professor Farrand, a close student of the 
period, avers that he has found "not a scrap of evi- 
dence that Webster's dissertation directly influenced a 
single member of the convention. In fact I have found 
practically no reference to it at that time." 

It is not perfectly clear, then, as Professor Chan- 
ning puts it, that "the framers of the Constitution were 
acquainted with Webster or with his 'Dissertation', but 
whether they were or no, and whether the Constitution 
owed anything to him or not, this essay is one of the 
most interesting dissertations ever printed in America." 
Dr. Taylor has done an admirable piece of work in 
calling attention, "virtually for the first time, to what 
is undoubtedly the most important single documentary 
anticipation of the Constitution, and places Webster, 
hitherto known chiefly as a writer on finance, in the 
front rank of early American publicists." The Nation 
concludes the above review with the laudatory state- 
ment : "The story of the origin of the Constitution 
must henceforth be told in the light of what Mr. Tay- 
lor very properly regards as a discovery, and for his 
own connection with that discovery he is entitled to 
hearty praise."

The Athletic Situation at the University 

To the Friends of the University : 

I take this opportunity of telling you I have been 
at work here for the past month, that I can always be 
found at No. 1 Battle Hall until we build an alumni 
club-house, and that I want your earnest co-operation 
in putting our athletics upon a permanent and pro- 
gressive basis. 

I find our college spirit is at low ebb; that there is 
no systematic effort to get new athletic material here; 
that the candidates for our football teams lack ele- 
mentary knowledge of the game and preliminary train- 
ing; that sufficient steps are not being taken to keep 
our athletes in the University until graduation; and 
that the co-operation between the students, alumni, 
and faculty is very poor. 

That our college spirit will improve when the stu- 
dents fully realize each one must strive to put fool 
ball upon a better basis, is shown by the fart that 
seventy-five men have come out for spring football 
practice, half of whom have not played on any but 
class teams, and more will follow when the track. 
gymnastic, and baseball seasons close. When l lux- 
see the alumni thoroughly aroused and putting forth 

their best efforts, the faculty sympathetic and 
erating, and that we are working along lines that will 
bring us lasting success, they will be 1 and 

their enthusiasm will grow rapidly. 

We arc getting in touch with men in the h 
schools, the preparatory schools, smaller co and 

with individual players outside of these institutii 
wherever we may hear of them. We are asking the 
students, alumni, and friends of the University to ' 
up men in their vicinity, and wherever they may I 
of them, to see them, get full information about them, 
and report them to me. 

In order to have more football played in the State, 
and thereby bring to the University better trained 
players, we will offer to the members of the winning 
preparatory school team of the State their transporta- 
tion and admission to one of our big g; 
We will also give the winning class team at the 1 'Di- 
versity the same reward. \ 'p ( "i application from 1' 
teams, we will furnish them with coaches and officials, 
who will be drawn from local alumni pi 
versity students. .Mr. DeWitl Kluttz, of David 
College, has been secured to coach our cl tball 

and baseball teams next year. Ow hour each - 
will be devoted to a talk on football, and the rules will 
be thoroughly discussed and studied. Spring football 
practice will continue until June. The General Ath- 
letic (Alumni) Committee has authorized me to secure 
the services of two good coaches next Fall to help 
coach the team and the alumni players in every | 
sible way. The alumni players will return here in 
force, have their knowledge of the game 1 
help with the coaching here, and work with the pre- 
paratory schools in their towns and vicinity. 

Conservation of material in (lie University will 
accomplished by keeping in close touch with the men. 
by learning their needs, ami by having a report 1 
month on their class work.. 

Ml these means will inn. lirit ami 

the students and alumni. They will in 
serve the material entering here. The men wil 
better (rained, and the .ilnmiti. faculty, and students 
will work as one.

Ed • \i.iM \i Wei ku : 

He. 1 pi my most cordial 

the high quality of Tin \ir\txr Review, 
issue of which 1 have received, li is II 



worthy of (lie incomparable University it represents. 
It is destined, I am sure, to render a large service to 
the University and to the cause of education in North 

I Vrsonally, I welcome The Review as a coveted and 
an effective means of keeping in touch with life and 
progress at Chapel Hill. After reading the first copy, 
and seeing what large improvements have been made 
(in the campus there since I left it only a little over 
two years ago, I realized very vividly how far behind 
I had gotten in this short time, and appreciated thereby 
the value which such a magazine will have for Caro- 
lina and for her widely scattered sons. 

With renewed congratulations, and best wishes.

Preparatory Schools Will Compete at the Hill 
At the meeting of the Teachers' Assembly, in 
Greensboro, the high-school principals of the east cen- 
tral district decided, upon the invitation of Professor 
Walker, to ho'd their annual literary and athletic con- 
tests at the University in April. The features of the 
meet will be a declamation contest, track athletics, and 
a baseball game. 

This is the first step taken by the University in 
bringing the representatives of the schools in the five 
districts of the State to the Hill to engage in general 
contests. Eventually a'l five of the districts are 
expected to send contestants, and the meet will assume 
large importance among all the secondary schools in 
North Carolina. 

The State University 
(President Vincent, in the Yale News) 
In fulfillment of its obligations to the State, the 
university must not only give training to those who 
resort to its teaching centers, but it must go to the 
people in their communities and their homes. This 
service can no longer be regarded as merely incidental, 
as a kind of by-product of the main activity of the 
institution. A special staff is needed for the general 
extension work of the university, just as a corps is 
engaged for agricultural extension. Among the many 
forms which this extension movement may profitably 
take are such activities as agricultural instruction, 
demonstration farms, industrial contests among the 
neighbors, evening courses in business and economics, 
and the like. In the last named series of courses there 
was a registration of 466 last year, which shows their 
popularity and usefulness. 

If a university is to realize the ideal of a campus 
as wide as the commonwealth, it must know the nat- 
ural resources, the people, the institutions, the needs 
of the whole State, and that this might be true of 
Minnesota, members'of the teaching staff during the 
past year have addressed audiences throughout 

Every institution should seek not only to conform 
to the best educational standards which prevail 
throughout the country, but should also aim at foster- 
ing an individuality of its own. For example, in the 
case of the University of Minnesota, there is every 
reason why we should seek to become the chief center 
of Scandinavian studies in the United States. Here 
should be co'lections, museums, libraries, and a staff 
of investigators and teachers which would give dis- 
tinction to the university. In this way, it should be 
the conscious purpose of the institution to discover 
its special aptitudes, sources of strength, opportunities 
for service, and of these to make the most. 

Lastly, back of all a university's activities, giving 
significance and purpose to them, should be a deepen- 
ing sense of obligation on the part of students and 
staff conscientiously to utilize the opportunities 
afforded by the commonwealth in order to make the 
largest return of skill and efficiency. 

The school-teacher, if properly qualified, is our most 
important public official. 

Those who teach the young are civilization's most 
powerful agents, and society everywhere ought to set 
apart and consecrate to its greatest work its bravest, 
its best, its strongest men and women. 

The teacher is the seed-corn of civilization, and 
none hut the best is good enough to use. 

Charles Duncan McIver, "Si. 

The right of every child to a public school education 
is no longer a subject of controversy, hut is acknowl- 
edged by everyone. 

Equal! That is the word! On that word 1 plant 
myself and my party— the equal right of every child 
horn on earth to have the opportunity "to bourgeon 
out all that there is within him."

In the Charlotte Observer of March 9, announcemer 
made of a forthcoming Carolina book b; rchibald Hen- 

derson, entitled "Richard Henderson; His Life and Times." 
The hook will deal with the settling of Tennessee and Ken 


tucky, and will present fully the part which Richard Hender- 
son, Daniel Boone, and other North Carolinians played in 
the first winning of the West. Other activities by Dr. Hen- 
derson recently have been the publication of "A Prop- 
Memorial to O. Henry," in pamphlet form ; a contribution to 
The University Magazine entitled "Real Conversations With 
Bernard Shaw," and an address before the Contemporary Club 
of Henderson on "The Literary Awakening," at a banquet 
given by the club in his honor. 

Mr. John N. Ware, instructor in French at the University

The University of Wisconsin received $72,000 in 1912 for 
tin work of university extension. 

Universitj of Michigan men in New York have a com- 
mittee to help introduce the younger graduates who come here 
to such volunteer civic and social work as they may find con- 
genial. This is in line with the movement among University 
of Michigan men everywhere to take a leading part in the 
work being done for the welfare of the community. The 
committee in New York is affiliated with similar committees 
from Yale, Harvard, Cornell, Pennsylvania, Princeton, Am- 
herst, and Williams. 

The University of Pennsylvania now has an endowment in 
money, buildings, books, collections, etc., of nearly $18,000,000. 
Large as this may appear, it is small as compared to Harvard, 
Columbia, Chicago, and the great and growing State univer- 
sities of the West. Many of the Western States provide a 
percentage from revenue for their State universities, so that 
they are independent of Legislature or the need of seeking 
personal benefactions. 

Eighteen members of the faculty of Williams College, 
chosen from those who teach freshman courses, have been 
appointed by President Garfield to take a group of eight or 
nine freshmen each and act as their advisers. It has been 
left to each adviser to determine his course with relation to 
the students under him. This arrangement will in no way 
affect the present regulations governing the relations of stu- 
dents with the dean's office. It is desiged to have the 
system of advisers quite informal. 

An innovation has recently been started at Haverford 
College, Haverford, Pa., in having a night school for 
Italians. This movement is carried on by undergraduates and 
is one of the activities of the Civics Club. At present about 
fifty Italians are enrolled and some of them are making good 
progress in learning English. 

Arrangements have been made with a Yale graduate in 
each of the 250 cities of the country with 25,000 inhabitants or 
more, fur the distribution of the official volume "Life at Yale" 
among the public high schools and other preparatory insti- 

With the appointment of Frank B. Moody, assistant State 
forester of the Wisconsin Forest Service, to its staff, the 
University of Wisconsin has taken the first steps toward the 
formation of a course in forestry. Mr. Moody's main work 
will be to organize a school for forest rangers, and to give 
courses on woodlot management in the University. The forest 

rangers' course will consist of two sessions, of six months 
each, extending over a period of two years. The new courses 
began January 1, i9 r 3- 

That one Wisconsin citizen in every ten has received direct 
instruction from the University of Wisconsin, is shown by 
statistics just compiled by the Alumni Association of the 
University. This estimate of the results of the University's 
teaching is figured on the basis of a population in the State 
of 2,333,860, and takes into consideration 10,000 graduates 
and regular students of the University scattered over the 
State ; 2,000 farm boys who have attended the short course 
in agriculture ; 3,000 dairy school students ; 8,000 correspon- 
dence course students who have been enrolled in the exten- 
sion division; 155,000 who take part in the annual Farmers' 
Courses and Farmers' Institutes conducted by the University 
in various parts of the State; 125,000 persons who have 
attended the lectures delivered by University men in all 
parts of the State; and 7,000 citizens who have made use of 
the "package libraries" sent out by the University upon 

The gifts and bequests to Yale University for the last 
fiscal year were returned officially as $1,164,715, but legacies, 
with life interests attached and sure to come in ultimately, 
represent an additional amount probably larger than the 
total sums received. They include the Hotchkiss, McPherson, 
and Bacon legacies, which alone total probably $1,000,000. 

Since the Christmas vacation the class football games 
have been played off at Davidson. By this means Davidson 
keeps her prospective Varsity material in constant training. 

An interesting portion of a recent Bulletin of the United 
States Bureau of Education shows the "professional distri- 
bution of college and university graduates," and a large part 
of this is devoted to Harvard University. The following list 
shows the number of Harvard graduates who have entered 
each of the professions considered : Law, 6,805 ; medicine, 
5,118; commercial pursuits, 3,672; ministry, 2,410; education, 
2,276; public service, 498; dentistry, 446; literature and 
journalism, 431 ; engineering, 341 ; agriculture, 241 ; veterinary 
medicine, no. 

For the purpose of bringing Princeton University into closer 
touch with the high schools of the State, arrangements have 
been made for lectures of a semi-popular nature to be given 
from time to time by members of the University faculty, 
before the high schools and under auspices of local Princeton 
Alumni Associations. The interest in this plan has been very 
marked, and a large number of requests for information con- 
cerning the lectures have been received. Several lectures 
have already been arranged for the near future, and the prin- 
cipals of a number of private schools have also asked if they, 
as well as the high schools, may not draw upon this program 

Greater co-operation between educational activities of 
Brown University and the State of Rhode Island is indicated 
in plans for a credit system now under consideration, whereby 
graduates of the Rhode Island State Normal School will be 
entitled to obtain degrees at Brown after two years of study in 
the College, their normal school training being regarded as 
equivalent to the first two years of a college course.

i recent meeting of the Wake County Medical Society,

on record an appreciation of the signal service rendered 
I ir. Richard H. Lewis, '70, of Raleigh, in the securing of 
health legislation and the enforcement of laws that have 
lg ht North Carolina's State Board of Health into the 
position of leadership among such boards in the South The 
resolutions are as follows, and will be endorsed by the lay- 
men as well as the legal profession not only in Wake County 
but in all North Carolina: 

"Whereas, the Wake County Medical Society in regular 
session wishes to put on record its appreciation of the services 
of Dr. R. H. Lewis in behalf of public health and high stand- 
ards for the medical profession in North Carolina; Therefore, 
be it resolved that the following statement be put upon our 
minutes, and published in the city papers: 

"Feeling that we should honor while they are alive the 
nun who best serve society and their fellows, the members 
of the Wake County Medical Society hereby wish to extend 
their thanks to Dr. R. H. Lewis for the great services he 
has rendered during the last twenty-five years in improving 
medical laws of the State and putting North Carolina well 
to the front of all the States of the Union in the results 
obtained through the State Board of Health, of which he was 
secretary until June. 10x19, when Dr. W. S. Rankin, whom 
he selected, was placed in charge, and the State Board of 
Medical Examiners of which he was a member from 1880 
to 1884. 

"The State Board of Health was created by the Legis- 
lature of 1877, with an appropriation of $100, and this was 
increased to $200 in 1881, to $2,000 in 1893, $4,000 in 1899, 
$10,500 in 1909, and $22,500 in 1911, With meager support, 
Dr. Lewis rendered splendid service, and finally brought the 
people to see what a State Board of Health could accom-

"The State laboratory of hygiene has been an object of Dr. 
Lewis' special nurture, and especially since it has been under 
the management of Dr. C A. Shore, '01, has become one of 
the most useful branches of public service. 

"The medical laws and rules prescribed for the State Board 
of Medical Examiners have been of an advanced character, 
and have had great influence in raising the standard of grad- 
uation in all the medical colleges receiving students from 
this State. 

"To have been the main factor in bringing these things to 
pass is sufficient to put Dr. Lewis in history as a benefactor 
to his day and generation. It is high testimony to the char- 
acter of the man that he was able to accomplish these things, 
while at the same time raising himself in the esteem of all 
lawmakers and public officials with whom he came in con- 
tact. A fine illustration of this fact is found in the tribute 
paid Dr. Lewis by the late Governor Aycock, who was four 
years chief executive of the State while Dr. Lewis was - 
tary of the Board of Health. Governor Aycock declared that 
Dr. Lewis was distinguished for prudence in dealing with 
legislative committees, persuasive in speech, always in thorough 

control of himself, always dependable, careful in framing 
his laws and explaining them, and withal a great patriot and 
a wise counselor. 

"Dr. Lewis accomplished this and more as an incidental 
feature to his very large practice as an optician. His ability 
and his true worth as a man have been recognized in the 
State and Nation. He was president of the State Medical 
Society in 1891 ; president of the National Conference of 
State Provincial (United States and Canada) Boards of 
Health in 1906; and president of the American Public Health 
Association (United States, Canada, Mexico, and Cuba) in 


"These are some of the qualities which have enabled Dr. 
Lewis to obtain for North Carolina the best medical laws 
of any State in the Union; and the physicians of this county 
and this State honor themselves in paying tribute to his

Under the heading "North Carolinians in The Metropolis," 
the News and Observer, February 8, Mr. R. h. Carraway 
writes entertainingly of Sen. William R. Webb, of Tennes - 
as follows : 

New York, February 8. — A veteran of the Confederate 
Army took the oath of office as a United States Senator when 
the Senate assembled on Monday, and this may be the last 
occasion when a man who served in the Civil War becomes a 
member of that body. He is William R. Webb, of Tennessee, 
and a native of North Carolina. He succeeds Newell San- 
ders, Republican, who served by appointment in place of the 
late "Bob" Taylor, better known for his ability as a public 
entertainer than as a legislator and political executive. 

Senator Webb, at the outbreak of the Civil War, was a 
student in a North Carolina school. He left his studies to 
serve as a soldier of the Fifteenth North Carolina Infantry. 
He was shot three times during the battle of Malvern Hill, 
being so severely wounded that he had to go home. While 
convalescing, he studied at the State University at Chapel 
Hill, and when he was well again heard the call to arms. 
Unable to march on account of his injuries, he joined a cav- 
alry contingent, was captured three days before General Lee's 
surrender at Appomattox, and brought as a prisoner of war to 
Battery Park, in this city. 

While in the Battery Park prison, Senator Webb made his 
escape by diving into the bay, and, wearing a wet and ragged 
Confederate uniform, went ashore and walked the streel oi 
New York north of the Battery in desperation. He likes to 
tell the story of how, when asked who he was by people on 
Broadway, he replied: "I'm just an escaped Confederate sol- 
dier." But this, he says, was not believed, and the persons 
to whom he told the truth only laughed and jeered. They 
thought he was insane. 

He managed to get back to North Carolina, finished his 
studies, took all the degrees which could be obtained at tin- 
University of North Carolina, and in 1870 went to Tennessee, 
where he opened the Webb School, and became famous 
throughout the State as a teacher. Senator Webb also bean 
the title of "Professor." With his brother, John M. Webb, 
he founded the school at Culleoka, Tenn., and it was there 
that the late Senator Carmack, of Tennessee, and Willi. mi 
F. McCombs, who managed the last Democratic national 
political campaign, were educated 

Senator Webb is a regular visitor to New York, and hi 
always enjoys his trips here, lie loves to tell of his experi 
ences here during the war, especially of his tramp up Broad 
way after his escape from prison. And he is a true blooded 
North Carolinian— proud of the Slate, proud of the 
versity, and proud of being a Tarheel.

the home of his nephew, Dr. Harry B. Baker, on East Grace 
Street, Richmond, Va. He went to Richmond December 21 
in quest of medical treatment. He had been suffering from 
an organic affection of the heart for some time. 

Colonel Burgwyn was a native of Northampton County, and 
was 67 years old. He was reared in Raleigh, his parents living 
on Newbcrn Avenue. He belonged to a family which had been 
prominent in North Carolina since colonial days, and his 
ancestor, John Burgwyn, held important offices under the 
royal government, and resided at a handsome country seat 
called "The Hermitage." He was a brother of Col. Harry 
Burgwyn, of the Twenty-sixth North Carolina Regiment, who 
was killed at the battle of Gettysburg, and also had several 
other brothers. 

In the War between the States he left school at the L T ni- 
versity and entered the service as lieutenant in the Thirty- 
fifth North Carolina Regiment, Ransom's Brigade, and later 
was promoted to rank of captain, which position he held until 
transferred in January, 1864, to General Clingman's staff, 
where he acted as assistant adjutant-general and assistant 
inspector-general, lie was engaged in numerous battles, was 
wounded at the assault of Fort Harrison, and also severely 
wounded at Cold Harbor. 

After the close of the War he studied law and located in 
Baltimore, where he became colonel of the famous Fifth 
Maryland regiment. While practicing law in Baltimore he 
also wrote a digest of decisions of the Maryland Court of 
Appeals. Later he returned to North Carolina and engaged 
in the manufacture of tobacco at Henderson. 

When the War with Spain came on he was commissioned 
colonel oi ond North Carolina Volunteers on May 7, 

[898, and was mustered in the United States service at Ra- 
. serving until November 15, 1898. This regiment ol 
which he was colonel was officered by many other veterans of 
\rniy of Northern Virginia, among them being Majors 
B. F. Dixon, John W. Cotton. Captain Edwin A. Osborne, 
and Captains Davis, Bell, Jones, Smith, and Cobb. Several 
he close of the Spanish- American War Colonel 
.vyn removed to Weldon, and was engaged in the bank- 
ing business there up to the time of his death. 

He was intensely interested in North Carolina history and 
made many valuable contributions to the historical literature 
" ; ,,: He was chosen by Chief Justice Clark to pre- 

pare sketches in the Regimental Histories of the Thirty-fifth 
ncnt and the Clingman Brigade. He was 
author of an address delivered at the University 
of North Carolina on June 4. [890, entitled "The 
Necessity of Preserving the Memorials of the Past and of 
Transmitting to Posterity a Just and Impartial History of 
North Carolina." He also, on May 10. 7906, by invitation of 
the Ladies' Memorial Association of Raleigh, delivered an 
address on the military and civil services of Gen Matt W. 

He was married to Miss Margaret Dunlop, of Richmond, 
who survives him. He left no children, but is survived by a 
brother, Col. C. P. E. Burgwyn, of Richmond ; four nephews. 



Dr. H. P. Baker, Richmond, Harry K., George P., and W. H. 
S Burgwyn, of Northampton County; and one niece, Mrs. W. 
T. M. Long, of Roanoke Rapids. One of Mrs. Burgwyn's 
sisters is the wife of Rev. Julian E. Ingle, of Raleigh. 

The funeral of the late Col. William II. S. Burgwyn, held 
from Christ Church the afternoon of January 5, was marked 
by simplicity, and the only reminder of his military life was 
the presence of a Confederate flag, which covered the casket, 
and Confederate uniforms worn by Gen. Julian S. Carr, Col. 
Ashley Home, Maj. Henry A. London, and other officers of the 
State division, and by members of the local camp. 

The body was taken from the home of Col. John W. 
Hinsdale to the church and there met by Archdeacon Hughes, 
Rectors Milton A. Barber and I. McK. Pittinger of the 
Raleigh parishes, Assistant Rector Swann of Raleigh, and 
Rector New of the Church at Weldon. 

A special train on the Seaboard Air Line from Weldon, 
brought many prominent people, including Mrs. Junius Daniels, 
widow of the noted Confederate general, Capt. Thomas W. 
Mason, Mr. Matt W. Ransom and Mr. D. Y. Cooper. There 
was a large representation of the Burgwyn family. 

Colonel Burgwyn's body was interred in the Confederate 
Cemetery beside that of his brother, Col. Harvey Burgwyn, 
who was killed at Gettysburg, aged 22, the youngest colonel in 
the Confederate service. The grave was covered and sur- 
rounded with flowers and at its head a large cross of these 
in white and purple with the three words, "citizen, soldier, 
gentleman." The monument of North Carolina granite which 
marks the brother's grave bears the family coat-of-arms and 
the motto, which was the mainspring of the lives of both — 
semper fidelis.
