OPINION AND COMMENT 



The Campus Combine the aggressive righteous- 
of 1913 ness of the Class of 1908 with the 

spirit of the Class of 1909 and you 
have the Class of 1913. The downright strength of 
W. P. Stacy, Johnston, and C. W. Tillett, lives in a 
new way in W. G. Harry and kobert Strange. The 
editorial virility of Gunter is voiced again in George 
Carrington. The business efficiency of James A. Gray 
is re-expressed by Lee Wiggins. And the University 
spirit, running through a whole class, finds a truer, 
freer life in the united Class of [913 led by Walter 
Stokes. 

This spirit is genuinely expressed and reinforced by 
the Greater Council, which came to life this year as an 
extension of the Student Council. Measured by its 
spirit value and practical results, the Greater Council 
touched student life at vital centers. The need for 
conference and concerted action for the welfare of 
college is answered in the representative character of 
the Greater Council, with its power to tone up the 
solidarity of the campus, and upon which can focus 
the cleansing scrutiny of the whole college. 

Backed by the Greater Council, a single student cut 
effectively at the roots of the bogus check evil, another 
conducted a series of hygienic lectures, and another 
started the movement which resulted in the trustees 
sanctioning an athletic fee that will solve the problem 
of athletic finances and will admit every student to all 
athletic contests on the Hill. Whethefr helping a 
member of the faculty to find rooms for the high 
school debaters, or discussing questions of student 
government, the Greater Council in the firsl year of its 
'ife worked with sincerity, and stood with com 
for the things that are real in University life. 

The year just closing is in some ways the darl 
that the college has known since the I lid Easl Build

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



withdraw from the active administration of the I ni- 
versity for a year, in order to secure rest and the 
restoration of normal health. Regretting the cause 
making necessary his request, and expressing the hope 
that he might speedily find renewed strength, the 
Trustees granted him leave of absence for one year 
from September first, and named Edward Kidder 
Graham, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts for five 
vears and teacher of Eng'ish since 1900, as Acting- 
President for the year 19 13-' 14. 

President Venable's request, and the consequent 
action, center attention upon his 'ong connection with 
the University and his great service to it. During the 
twenty vears in which he was Professor of Chemistry 
he participated in all movements having as their object 
the upbuilding of the University, and since his entry 
into the presidential office the University has gone 
steadily forward. 

Just how significant this progress has been since 
1900 may be seen by referring to the summary given 
by President Yenable at the meeting of the Alumni. 
as reported elsewhere in The Review. The Faculty 
has grown from 35 to 83. Fourteen of the twenty- 
three buildings now on the campus have been erected. 
The total income from all sources for 1912-13 was 
$275,000, and the permanent equipment reached $800, 
000. The standard of the University has been raised to 
the point that it is grouped with the first Universities 
in the land. 

In placing Dean Graham at the head of the Univer- 
sity for the year, the Trustees have brought to the 
administrative office one who through ability and full 
knowledge of its requirements is spendidly qualified 
to direct its affairs. Under his strong, aggressive 
leadership the University may confidently be expected 
to go forward. 

University University Extension from Chapel 
Extension Ili'l as the starting point seems to 

have come to stay. The Extension 
Bureau has been granted an "allowance'' in the budget, 
which, it is to be hoped, may be increased in propor- 
tion to the need of extension work in the State. 

The Bureau is modest enough not to claim credit for 
all the praiseworthy things which have been started on 
the Hill this year looking to a closer bond between the 
University and the State. But it is glad to have been 
present at the conferences at which they were dis- 
cussed, and it has insisted that the University, in all 



of its planning and doing, should extend its range of 
service so that its power to help might be felt in every 
nook and cranny of the State. 

Accordingly, the idea, as applied to the Societies, 
evolved into the High School Debating Union; as 
applied to the Greater Council and Athletic Associa- 
tion, it resulted in the Interscholastic Track Meet ; its 
effect upon the Extension Committee was to set it to 
work securing funds for the publication of a definite 
series of Extension Bulletins, two of which are now 
serving the schools of North Carolina ; as applied to 
the University Library, it caused it to offer its re- 
sources in works on education and its package libraries 
to the schools and citizenship of the State. 

In this particular field there has been progress. 
Furthermore, three bulletins are now preparing which 
wi" further carry the idea into effect. One of these 
will give a list of lectures which members of the 
faculty will give, under conditions to be set forth, on 
questions which vitally affect North Carolina life. 

To be most effective, this special work will require 

the co-operation of the alumni just as much as the 

athletic interests of the University do. Invitations 

and suggestions can best come through them. The 

University herewith goes on record as urgently cal'- 

ing upon the alumni for this aid, and confidently looks 

to them for it. 

* * # * * 

Tin. Summer Tin: Review doesn't wish to worry 
School its readers by saying too much about 

the Summer School. Its oft speak- 
ing is occasioned by the tremendous importance of the 
School to the University. Six hundred student'- will 
have entered the various classes before the term closes, 
and a faculty and special lecture group of more than 
forty specialists will have given instruction to the 
student body. 

The large considerations involved are: first, that 
the students and facu'ty. in part, come from the 
schools of Xorth Carolina to which the University 
must look for students for the regular term : and 
second, that the Summer School has the kind of spirit 
which appeals to the teachers, and makes them feel 
that the University of Xorth Carolina is their Uni- 
versity and is seriously attempting to serve them. 

Thought devoted to the enlargement of the School 
and such liberality of funds as may be possible, are 
worthy of the University's consideration. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 









The Review The Review has said very little 
about itself. Ii has been at work 
trying to make itself a reality in the life of the I in 
versity. However, in this, its last issue for the year, 
it wants to say thank you to all who have supported it 
through subscriptions, gifts, contributions, or other- 
wise; to let you know that its subscription list has l>een 
less than 1,000; to inform you that only one un 
solicited letter has been received for publication; to 
tell you that only three paid advertisements have been 
carried; and to ask your real, outright supporl for

THE ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEENTH COMMENCEMENT 



The annual commencement of [913 began Sunday 
morning, June 1, with the baccalaureate sermon b) 
Dr. E. Y. Mullins, President of the Baptist Theologi 
cal Seminary, of Louisville, Ky.. thus reverting to the 
old order of commencement week, in which the exer 
cises began on Sunday in Gerrard Hall, with the ser 
mon to the graduating class, instead of on Saturda) 
with class day exercises, and ending on Wednesday 
instead of Tuesday. 

Introduced by President Venable, Dr. Mullins an 
nounced as his text Hebrews 2 : 8- "Thou didst put 
all things under his feet." and soughl ai once to sug 
gest to the minds of his audience God's ideal for man 
In quick succession he showed how man had hitherto 
failed to attain to the position to which he wa! 
signed. To prove that it was not owing to man's 



ability to reach the goal point 

ment, Di Mullins strikingly annalyzed th< 

man. thereby showing, through bis

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



Constructive imagination was the second character- 
istic which Dr. Mullins noted as an intimation of 
man's greatness. By this, he meant one's capacity to 
form great ideals and then to realize them in fact. 

A third element in man's nature, suggesting man's 
greatness, he termed the irrepressible love of experi- 
ment ; that restless spirit that is not content with one 
great achievement but continues onward and upward 
to conquer other worlds. This eternal discontent with 
achievement, this consciousness of growth, destines 
man to dominion and power. 

As causes contributing to man's failure to measure 
up to his opportunities as given by God, Dr. Mullins 
designated the failure of man to control his body and 
his endeavor to separate himself from the ethical and 
religious atmosphere surrounding him. Another 
cause of failure has been his collision with the powers 
of nature. To the extent that man has overcome these 
and has directed his life in relation to them, to that 
extent he has achieved success. 

The attainment to complete dominion, Dr. Mullins 
showed, lay through Jesus Christ. 



SERMON TO THE Y. M. C. A. 

The sermon before the Y. M. C. A. was preached 
Sunday evening at eight o'clock, by Rev. Josiah Sibley, 
of the Presbyterian Church of Knoxville, Tenn. Mr. 
J. A. Holmes, President of the Association, presided. 

Mr. Sibly, though a comparatively young man in 
years, brought a powerful message to the young men 
who were turning from the shelter of the campus to 
the temptations of the world. There was something 
of the power which characterized the memorable ser- 
mon of Bishop Hugh Miller Thompson, of Missis- 
sippi, to the Class of 1899, in the appeal which Mr. 
Sibley made for clean living and high thinking in spite 
of all the allurements which life offered to the con- 
trary. 

For the man with a high ideal, Mr. Sihlev predicted 
a great future; for ideals always lead to high accom- 
plishments. Beacons of the ideal, beacons of person- 
ality, and beacons of sacrificial service were the lights 
which he would have the favored college man keep 
shining with pure whiteness 



CLASS DAY EXERCISES 



Conforming to the custom of years, the seniors 
opened Class Day, Monday, June 2, with "Final 
Prayers" in the chapel, with Dr. Battle as leader. 
President Walter Stokes, with Miss Watson Kasej 
Vice-President, led the group of seventy-seven 
seniors to the last service. Immediately following the 
devotions, permanent class officers were chosen, the 
honors falling worthily upon D. L. Rights. I 'resi- 
dent ; and A. L. M. Wiggins, Secretary-Treasurer. 

With a short recess intervening, the class reassem- 
bled in Gerrard Hall to continue the program. Walter 
Stokes presided, and delivered his farewell address 
to the class, which from all considerations has been 
the most united in the past fifteen years. 

"The Spirit of the Cass of 1913'' was consequently 
an appropriate subject for the address. He chose to 
call this spirit which had emanated from the senior 
class and permeated the whole University the com- 
mercial or nationa 1 spirit. He urged that this same 
spirit be carried by the class out into life, and applied 
there, the only difference between the life on the 
campus and the life out in the world being one of 
extent. The national spirit could be and should be 
applied by the class wherever its members should be. 

M. T. Spears, the historian, recounted the achieve- 
ments of the class in the affairs of the University, 



In athletics and literary activities, the class had taken 
a prominent stand, hut in the one particular of class 
football it enjoyed the distinction of being the only 
class ever known at the University which had never, 
in the whole period of t'onr years, crossed an oppo- 
nent's goal line. 

The presentation of the class gift was made by J. 
C. Busby. In making the presentation, he spoke in 
part as follows : 

" I hree years ago the graduating class presented to 
the University a gift of $2,000 toward a fund of 
$I0,000 to he used for the building of a better athletic 
field. Since, the need of an improved athletic field has 
increased, and accordingly each class has added to the 
initial sum. Today, in behalf of the Class of [913, 
I wish to present to our alma mater our class gifl 
\'i\\ ard this fund. 

"We give this morning for this particular purpose, 
because we realize keenly one need of the I niversitv. 
We are conscious of the growing demand for better 
athletic equipment, by means of which students may 
train themselves to he strong physical men. We feel 
the State's call for I nivcrsity teams of power, and it 
is the wish of the Class of 1913 to respond to the 
State's call by helping to build an athletic field adequate 
to develop that power which lies dormant here. 

"For the Class of [913, 1 present to the University 
our class gift of $2,000. to he used toward the build- 
ing of a new athletic field." 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 






Running back through the years, the contest for the 
Manguni Medal has been of the first interest to alumni 
as well as members of the graduating class. In recent 
years, representatives have been chosen from a larger 
number of competitors, four of whom are selected by 
a faculty committee to contest on Class Day for the 
honor. The four chosen from [913 were J. C. Busby, 
of Salisbury; W. G. Harry, of Grover; II. C. Petti 
way, of Brooksville, F!a. ; and Guy B. Phillips, of 
Trinity. Their subjects were respectively: "New 
National Policies"; "The Spirit of a New Era"; "A 
New Force and the Young Man in Southern Politics"; 
and "An Unrewarded Hero of Democracy." Dr. Ven- 
able presided over the contest, and the decision of the 
judges was reserved until Wednesday morning, when 
Guy B. Phillips was declared the winner. 



Farewell, 19 13 
At 5.30, beneath "Davie Poplar," Class Day exer- 
cises were concluded with the reading of statistics, 
the prophecy, the last will and testament, smoking the 
pipe of peace, and what for two years has been the 
practice of turning over the campus to the rising senior 
class. In recent years this has taken the place of burn- 
ing the senior benches. The statistics of the class,

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 
THE SOLDIERS' MONUMENT UNVEILED 



An event which had been looked forward to for a 
number of years, and which in appropriateness 
matched the granting of degrees in 1911 to the living 
students who left the University for the battle front 
during i86i-'65, was the unveiling of the Soldiers' 
monument, at 4.30 Monday afternoon, June 2, erected 
in memory of all University students, living and .lead, 
who served in the Confederacy. 

The exercises held in Gerrard Hal and on the 
campus were under the direction of the North Caro- 
lina Division of the United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy, which, through the co-operation of friends 
and alumni of the University, provided the funds for 
the erection of the fitting memorial. Gov. Locke 
Craig was the principal speaker. Other addresses 
were made by Maj. II. A. London, of Pittsboro : Mrs. 
Marshall Williams, of Faison, president of the North 
Carolina Division of the United Daughters of the 
Confederacy; Mrs. II. A. London, chairman of the 
monument fund committee, and original proposer of 
the memorial ; and Gen. Julian S. Carr. Presented by 
Mrs. London, the monument was received by the 
University by President Venable, and by the Univer- 
sity students, in whose honor it was placed upon the 
campus, by General Carr. one of the boys of '66, who 
left the I lib for the battle line. 

Governor Craig's tribute follows, in part : 

"The University was consumed by the War. At the 
beginning of the conflict she held a commanding posi- 
tion, and was in the full vigor of magnificent develop- 
ment. She was the glory of North Carolina, and the 
chief seat of learning in the South. Her alumni were 
leaders in all departments of life; they occupied the 
highest places of honor and power; they were 'the 
oracles of senates and the ornaments of courts.' Her 
hal's were thronged with indents from this and other 
States. 

"In 1S61, these students went to war. The boys 
who would have come here but for the war. left their 
homes to join the armies of Virginia and Tennessee. 
The figures tell how they answered the call for 
volunteers. In 1859, there were [25 graduates; in 
iSdj. there were 24. Of the Class of [863, eighl re- 
mained to be seniors; they were enhited. ( )f the Class 
of 1864. seven remained to be seniors; they were en- 
listed; two were absent from commencement attend- 
ing to military duties. In 1864, one-fifth of the entire 
faculty had been killed in battle, and -others had been 
wounded. 

"At the commencement of 1805. only one graduate 
completed the course. Fourteen students began the 
senior year, but on'y three could lie present at com 
mencerr.-ent, the others were at the front. 



•'From a letter written by President Swain to Jeffer- 
son Davis, on October 5, 1863, I quote as follows: 

" At the close of the collegiate year, June 7, i860, 

the whole number of students at our college was 430. 

They were distributed in the four classes 

as follows: seniors, 84; juniors, 102; sophomores, 

125; freshmen, 80.' 

"The senior class of i860 had 84 members. Every 
one of them able to bear arms, with perhaps one ex- 
ception, went to the army. ( >f these, one-fourth of 
the entire number were killed upon the field. In the 
younger classes, the loss was about the same. The 
proportion of the wounded to the ki led is usually 
estimated as three to one. By this rule of computation. 
nearly all the boys who left this institution to follow 
the flag of the Confederacy were killed or wounded 
in battle. 

"The aged and infirm professors, with vestal devo- 
tion, kept alive the sacred fire of learning in this 
temple, dedicated by the fathers and sanctified by 
tradition. 

"When General Sherman's forces entered the town 
of Chapel Hill, these teachers, with ten or twelve boys, 
were trying to preserve the University amid the uni- 
versa 1 destruction. The college bell was rung by Dr. 
Charles Phillips, and in the chapel morning and even- 
ing prayers were offered for a stricken and a sorrow 
iii!_ r land. 

The youths, bouyant and hopeful, that had thronged 
these halls, and made this campus ring with shouts of 
boyish sports, had gone. The University mourned in 
silent desolation. Her children had been slain. But 
she was splendid in that day of tribulation, for 
wherever armies had marched, and wherever the con 
elusion of tierce battle had been tried, her sons had 
fought and fallen at the front. Many fell on the 
bloody fields of Virginia and Pennsylvania. Upon 
the faces of those who returned, the scar stamps 
heroism where God had impressed nobility. 

"This was the offering made by the Universit) to 
the G mfederacy : 

" 'Go tell at Lacedaemon that they died in obedience 
to her law.' 

"When in the Roman Forum there yawned a chasm 
that could not he closed, and that poisoned the city 
with its pestilence, the gods demanded as an appeas 
ing sacrifice whatever was most precious in Rome. 
Mettus Curtius, the most beautiful youth, clothed and 
armed as a soldier, leaped in. Answering the Supreme 
requisition, the University laid upon the altar of Dixie 
the fairest and the bravest of the word. 

"This statue is a memorial to their chivalry and 
devotion. It is an epic poem in bronze. Its beaut) 
and its grandeur are not limited by the genius of the 
sculptor. The soul of the beholder will determine 
the revelation of its meaning. It will remind you and 
those who come after you of the bovs who left these

peaceful, classic shades for the hardships of armies 
at the front, for the fierce carnage of titanic battles, 
for suffering and for death. We unveil and dedicate 
this monument today as a covenant that we too will 
do our task with fidelity and courage. 

"These boys were not drafted. The authorities of 
the University tried to keep them here. They came 
from homes of plenty and culture. They enjoyed 
comforts. They knew the danger of war. But they 
turned their backs upon the feast, and renounced the 
place of ease. Trained in the curriculum of one of 
the first universities, they went to the ranks and 
drilled and toiled and fought with the lowly. 

"These boys endured with patience; they doggedly 
withstood the impact of rushing squadrons; they 
were foremost in the onset. 

"On the third day at Gettysburg, Pettigrew looked 
upon the decimated ranks of his youthful soldiers, 
still dauntless amid the crash of doom. He un- 
covered, and bowed to them, and said: 'Boys, for 
the honor of North Carolina, forward.' lie wept 
when he saw them with fixed bayonets charging the 
stone wall at the bloody angle — forward with un- 
faltering step while they were torn by grape and 
canister. The sons of the University led this charge. 
Nothing more heroic was ever done in war. They 
were equal to the Spartans at Thermopylae; to the 
Thebans at Chaeronia ; to the English at Balaklava; 
to the Old Guard at Waterloo. They are in the band 
of the immortals. With these there is no second place.

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



THE INTER- SOCIETY BANQUET 



That the "Di" and "Phi" have in no sense lost any 
of their power over the hearts of the student body and 
alumni is strikingly evidenced every year by the throng 
of former members who crowd into Commons Hall 
for the annual Society dinner. No student who has 
timorously signed the constitution of either of the 
societies in his freshman year, and has seen his life 
take on gradual power under the strengthening in- 
fluence of these bodies, thinks lightly of the meeting 
which calls him hack to renew his memories of the 
past. 

The banquet of 1913 was no exception to this rule. 
The speakers for the occasion were selected from a 
wide range, representing classes graduating from the 
University over a long span of years. 

The chief speaker of the evening was lion. 1 Iannis 
Taylor, of Washington, D. C, former minister to 
Spain, and a recognized authority the world over on 
international law. 

S. Brown Shepherd, of Ra'eigh, was alumni speaker 
on behalf of the Philanthropic Society, and the stu- 
dent speaker on behalf of the "Phi" was W. R. Pett 
eway. Representing the alumni from the Dialetic 
Society was J. J. Parker, of Monroe, and the student 
speaker from the "Di'' was E. R. Rankin, of Gastonia. 
D. J. Walker, of Caswell County, acted as toast- 
master. 

Hon. Hannis Taylor, a native North Carolinian, 
whose life has been projected into international re- 
lations, alluded to himself as a man without a country 
returned to the home of his fathers. He tied him- 
self to his audience by his fee'ing references to his 
blood connection with North Carolina for nearly two 
hundred years. These associations became local and 
personal in his memories of Newbern. his birthplace, 
and in high tributes to Governor Swain, president in 
his college days. Mrs. Cornelia Spencer, staunch 
champion of the University when its light was low. 
and Dr. Kemp P. Battle, linking the old from which 
he had gone with the new in whose presence he stood. 
He congratulated the University upon the marked 
progress in scholarship and morality, its present 
mountain top of temperance and self-control. 

With this reminiscent preamble, the speaker threw 
himself into the theme of his life, the Law of 
Nations. "The present world stands on the eve of a 
great change in the relation of nations," he said. 
"The method of writing history which was artistic 
from Thucydides to Gibbon, was changed by the 



French Revolution, which puts history upon a socio- 
logical basis. The application of steam and electricity 
to the fabric of social life, and the acce'erated means 
of inter-communication, are the forces in the present 
revolution. With the remarkable illustration of Japan 
as a world power and effete China as a hopeful repub- 
lic, law and international relations will respond to 
the change." 

Here the speaker traced with compressed suggestion 
the growth of international law out of the complex 
life of the Roman Empire. The commercial and equity 
codes of every State today are based upon Roman Jus 
Gentium. The question the speaker propounded was. 
"lias a 'apse of two thousand years and the present 
great awakening brought the time for jurists to build 
up by the comparative method a fresh composite, 
which can justly he called the law common to a\\ 
nations as they stand todav?" 

The speaker closed with an eloquent plea that all the 
great material changes in the world today should not 
rob us of the eternal spiritual facts of Cod and im- 
mortality. 

Representing the alumni. Brown Shepherd spoke 
upon "The Student's Standpoint." and happily re- 
ferred to the pleasure and benefit derived by the 
alumni upon the occasion of these reunions, where they 
refresh themselves from the college spirit and ideal. 
He did not undertake to analyze and criticise the stu- 
dent mind and consciousness, assuming that sufficient 
of that had been done by such able men as Professor 
Williams and others nearer by. but treated them as 
though they had the training and ideals which they 
were supposed to have acquired from such surround- 
ings. Here the speaker recalled humorously some 
college anecdotes illustrating his viewpoint. 

He then spoke encouragingly as to the student's 
standpoint in re'ation to the world today, and the 
value of the student's ideals. He closed by saving 
that if the alumni brought from the business world 
advice that might guide the student over rough paths 
the student is expected to blaze a higher and better 
way. 

In speaking as the alumni representative <>f the "Di." 
J. J. Parker called attention to the national questions 
of trusts, capital, labor, and the tariff, and insisted 
that these (|uestions should be approached for settle- 
ment from a broad, national point of view. He de- 
cried the fact that in North Carolina there was a con-

stant warfare of retaliation waged against the public the futun 
service corporations, and found pleasure in the be'ief questions 
that the University and the Societies were training the truth. 






ALUMNI DAY 

Sons From Far and Near Return for Reunions and Annual Luncheon 



In response to an insistent demand, Alumni Day 
was celebrated on Tuesday, tints giving the alumni an 
opportunity of reaching the I [ill on Monday and being 
in readiness for the part of commencement in which 
they find their chief pleasure. Hereafter, Tuesday 
will be Alumni Day, and all alumni can plan accord 
ingly. 

The exercises began at co. 30 Tuesday, with an in- 
vocation by Rev. A. D. P.etts, '55, Maj. John W, 
Graham, '59, of Hillsboro, presiding. The address 
of the day was delivered by the Right Reverend 
Robert Strange. '79, of Wilmington, bishop of the 
Diocese of Eastern North Carolina. II is address was 
an exposition of the sound doctrine, applicable to grad- 
uate and undergraduate alike, that the really success- 
ful man is the one combining character with industry, 

Among other things, Bishop Strange said: 

"Ta'king one night with a group of men about 
University life, its honors, and their relation to after 
honors in life, a friend read us a letter from his father 
on that subject. His father said that his recollections 
of college and his experience in life led him to the 
conclusion that the boy is father to the man. that it is 
generally true that the position a boy occupies in col- 
lege is the same relatively that he occupies in aftet 
life. As I recall my co'lege friends and acquaintances, 
as I think of their career in life. I find that statement 
is true as a whole. And so, my young friends, do your 
best work here; for it is the general rule that when 
you pass out of these shades, your character and youi 
destiny are fixed in their direction. 

"I think all schools ought to have a larger part of 
the discipline administered by the students. 'The col 
lege man ought to feel that lie is trusted. This cruel 
and cowardly custom of hazing, this survival of the 
Dark Ages when every man looked on the stranger 
as his enemy, comes from a twisted sense oi right, 
from a perverted idea of training, or from the savage 
Indian h'ood revenge, visiting on another what wa: 
inflicted on one. 

"The only way to stop it is to appeal to Hie best in 
every man.' I am sure this is the polic) oi trust and 
high appeal which the president and faculty are u 
in their efforts to break up hazing in the 
It is the best and wisest way, and I believe that 
will achieve success in this important mailer.

with Dr. Hester as the most entertaining funmaker on 
the Hill during Commencement. 

F. C. Harding, of Greenville, was spokesman for 
the Class of '93, a half-score of whose members were 
present for their twentieth anniversary. He gave an 
interesting account of the activities of the class, and 
showed that '93 was ever loyal to the University. 

As secretary of the Class of '03, Rev. C. E. Mad- 
dry, pastor of the Baptist Tabernacle Church, of 
Ra'.eigh, read the following statistics relating to the 
fifty-seven members of the class who graduated : 

Vocations — Lawyers, 13; teachers, 10; doctors, 9; 
merchants, 5 ; bankers, 4 ; ministers, 4 ; chemists, 4 ; 
manufacturer, 1 ; geologist, 1 ; stock dealer, 1 ; rail- 
road man, 1 ; wine dealer, 1 ; journalist, 1 ; creamery 
business, 1 ; cotton mill business, 1 ; other businesses, 
6. 

Three combined teaching and farming. One mem- 
ber of the class has died. Twenty-seven are married. 
Incomplete statistics show that the number of chil- 
dren in the class is now about equal to the number that 
graduated ten years ago. 

The average income of the class the first year out 
of college was $665.55 ; the average income at present 
is $2,564.40. 



The Luncheon 

The alumni luncheon was held at Commons, at 1.30, 
the entire room being crowded to overflowing. 
Former Lieutenant-Governor F. D. Winston presided 
as toastmaster. 

President Yenable responded first to the call of the 
toastmaster. In beginning, he said : 

"It is a pleasure to see so many of the alumni revisit- 
ing their alma mater on this commencement occasion, 
and in the name of the University I bid them a cordial 
welcome. 

I am glad too to present them this band of younger 
brothers, who tomorrow will join the ranks of the 
alumni, and to assure them that no more loyal and 
finer spirited c'ass has been added to their number. 
Because of the tragic occurrence on the opening day 
of the session, this has been a year of peculiar trial 
and depression, and no one could have faced the trial 
with finer spirit nor risen more nobly to meet their 
responsibilities than have the members of this class, 
and they have infused the whole student body with 
their loyalty and helpfulness and determination to 
better the conditions of L'niversity life. For orderly 
behavior, for unity of purpose both in faculty and 
students, and for the strengthening of the highest 
ideals, this session will always be remembered by me 
as unpara'leled since that fatal opening day."

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 









Continuing, President Venable reported 837 stu- 
dents during the year, which, together with the num- 
ber in the Summer School, brought the total to [,300. 
In material equipment, progress was evidenced by an 
increase in the annual appropriation of $8,000; the 
Medical, Educational, and Dormitory buildings had 
been erected; the Soldiers' monument had been un- 
veiled, and plans had been selected for the new Dining- 
Hall. 

Advance in other particulars was shown by the es 
tablishment of The Alumni Review, the Bureau of 
Extension, the High School Debating Union, and the 
Inter-scholastic Track Meet. The enlarged work of 
the Greater Council and the fresh interest of the 
alumni in athletics were included in the list of wider 
activities. 

In summing up the growth in the twelve years since 
1900, President Venable reported an increase of aboul 
70 per cent, in the number of students; 150 per cent. 
in the size of the faculty; twelve new buildings, or an 
increase of 100 per cent., over $800,000, in material 
equipment; and a growth of income from $50,000 to 
$280,000 from all sources for the past year. 

Hon. ITannis Taylor, of Washington, D. C. ; John 
A. Parker, of Charlotte; Rev. R. T. Bryan, of Shang- 
hai, China; W. F. Stokes, of Nashville, Tenn. ; Rev, 
St. Clair Hester, of Brooklyn, X. Y.. and Dr. J. Y

came from Dr. Charles S. Mangum, of the faculty 
committee on athletics, and from Graduate Manager 
L. P. McLendon, representing the student viewpoint. 
A fitting close of the meeting was the resolution, as 
offered by ex-Judge J. C. Biggs, of Raleigh, and 
adopted by the unanimous vote of the body, to send 
words of congratulation to President E. A. Alder- 
man, of the University of Virginia, on the announce- 
ment of his recovery from a long illness. 

Annual Debate 
The annual debate and contest for the Bingham 
medal was held at 8.30 o'clock, between representatives 
of the Di and Phi Societies from the Junior Class, 
The four contestants were J. A. Holmes, of Graham. 
and F. L. Webster, of Wilkesboro, for the Di; and 



S. \Y. Whiting, of Raleigh, and E. S. Peel, of Wil- 
liamston, for the Phi. The query was: "Resolved, 
that those decisions of State courts of last resort de- 
claring unconstitutional legislation passed by State 
legislative bodies should be subject to recall by the 
voters in question." The affirmative was upheld by 
the Di, the Phi supporting the negative. 

The decision was announced in favor of the Di : 
and on Wednesday J. A. Holmes was declared the 
winner of the prize for the best speech on the winning 
side. 

The Reception 

At 10.30, the President and the Faculty gave the 
seniors, alumni, and visitors a reception in the I ni- 
versity Library. 



COMMENCEMENT DAY 

Vice-President Marshall and Governor Craig Deliver Splendid Addresses 



Commencement exercises proper, made notable by 
the presence of Thomas R. Marshall. Vice-President 
of the United States, began at 10.30, when the academic 
procession passed from the Alumni Building to .Me- 
morial Hall. Two thousand persons were present to 
participate in them and hear the distinguished 
speaker. 

The invocation was made by Rev. R. T. Bryan, '82, 
of Shanghai, China. 

Introduced by President Venab'.e, and greeted with 
prolonged applause by the audience, which rose and 
stood to pay him honor, Vice-President Marshall com- 
pletely captivated his hearers in the first moments of 
his address by a humorous reference apropos of the 
introduction he had just received. He spoke, in part, 
as follows: 

"Mr. President, Friends, and Fellow Citizens: 
"1 do not know your President very well, but I 
think I may venture, in view of the laudatory remarks 
which he made in presenting me to you, to tell you a 
story. I was born before the days of 'sodywater', and 
I well remember when the first 'sody-fountain' came 
to our town in Indiana, and old Uncle Jim Epherson 
with his good wife, Mary, came to town one Saturday 
afternoon, and went in where the 'sody-fountain' was, 
and Unc'e Jim ordered a glass and tendered it to his 
good wife, and she. said: 'Naw, Paw. your stomick's 
stronger than mine, you take it fust, and if it don't 
hurt you I will try it.' So Uncle Jim drank it down, 
and ordered another glass, and said: 'Here, Maw, 
take it down; taint nothing but sweetened wind.' 

"I hope your distinguished and lovable president 
will pardon me when I say that his method of presen- 



tation has nut affected my attitude toward life at all. 
I realize it is only sweetened wind. I took it down, 
and it has not hurt me. 1 am a Iloosier to the manor 
horn, and in the manor bred; the son of a Uoosier, 
whose infant eyes first caught the light through prime- 
val forests of Indiana: the grandson of old Virginia; 
and thus 1 conn- as a connecting link between the old 
time and the new. to tell you that there is scarcely a 
county in my good State of Indiana where there are 
not splendid citizens with recollections of the early 
days, and pleasant recollections of the fact that men 
from the Old Xorth State helped to make Indiana 
what J believe her to be — the greatest commonwealth 
in the Republic. And so it is an unusual pleasure for 
me to come into the < >ld Xorth State, and face its 
citizenship, and to look, with the permission of Mrs. 
.Marshall, into the eyes of the fair women of Xorth 
Caro'.ina. 

"I assume that upon such an occasion as this, per- 
haps some thoughts that may be elevated to a high 
plane may fitly be spoken touching this University 
and its work. We believe now in evolution, and I 
think we should believe more in evolution along 
social and economic lines, if we would but remember 
that evolution is much like a tree, which has two ways 
to show itself to humankind. The tree grows in cir- 
cumference every year; it strikes its roots deeper into 
the ground; throws its head higher to the sky; it 
spreads its branches farther and farther, and fur- 
nishes shade for people; and yet the tree has fruit. 
And sometimes when the hoy picks it in the Spring 
of the year, when it is green, and he gets appendicitis 
or near-appendicitis, he thinks the tree ought to be 
cut down, and says 'by its fruit it ought to he known': 
and as it has not good fruit, the tree oughl to go. Vnd 
sometimes in the Fall of the year, the frail is unfil 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 






for use, because it is too ripe. And. if we are always 
to look at the present condition and the outward mani- 
festations of the fruit of our life, there ma) be main 
of us who would say that the civilization under which 
we are living is one that ought not to endure, because, 
in some instances, it- fruit is green and knarly and 
unfit for use. But we ought not to so consider all 
the affairs of life. We ought to remember that the 
fruit is but an evanescent thing so far as the tree is 
concerned." 

Taking the art of printing as an illustration. Vice- 
President Marshal] declared that the art should not be 
condemned because the pros of the country printed 
much that was unfit for public consumption. Through 
the press, the Republic of the United States had been 
able to sink its roots down into the life of the people. 
and would enable it to endure. 

In characterizing the growth of civilization, from 
the beginning of the Aryan race to the present, the 
speaker said that first the struggle was to win the 
headship of the family, and then of the tribe. The 
Englishman went a step further and fought for tin 
right. The North Carolina patriot, in fighting for 
freedom, gave to the American people the slogan "God 
never made any man big enough to be master ot an- 
other man without his consent." 

This principle of evolution, as applied to American 
education as first conceived of by Jefferson, had re 
suited in the acceptance on the part of modern society 
of the theory that it is the duty of every man, and 
especially the college man. to see to it that every man 
and woman in the Republic should make of himself 
or herself what God had intended them to be. 

In speaking of the part played by the University 
of North Carolina in making vital this principle in the 
civilization of State and nation, Vice-President Mar- 
shall concluded his address with the following para- 
graphs : 

"This University, if it will send out in the hour of 
peace men who are self-forgetful, men who live up to 
the high idea's in these days that their fathers lived up 
to in the years gone by. this University will have ju 
fied herself; and for myself 1 still hold it to bi 
tially necessary that whatever systems of education 
there may be in America, there must remain these old 
fashioned cultural schools. whose Imsiness n i- to make 
men. 

"Hitherto the ( >ld North Stale ha. pre einincntlv

convictions, men who would justify their standpoii

Conferring of Decrees 

Before the conferring of degrees in course, His 
Excellency, Governor Craig, in an exceedingly he'p- 
ful, earnest talk, urged the class to play its part well 
in the new life it was entering. His most significant 
sentence was "The man who serves his fellowman 
fulfills his own destiny.'' 

Eighty-four undergraduates and twelve graduates 
received degrees: -ixty-seven the degree of bachelor 
of arts; ten, bachelor of science; four, bachelor of 
law; three, bachelor of pharmacy; ten, master of 
arts: and two. master of science. Three students re- 
ceived two degrees each.

ogical questions, has just been issued by the Univer 
sity Bureau of Extension, and is being widely dis- 
tributed throughout North Carolina. It is to be used 
throughout the entire school system of the State, ami 
will prove of great service in declamation, in the work 
of English composition, and in reading. In addition 
to being placed in the high schools and graded schools, 
it will be distributed among the public libraries of the 



State, and a number of copies will reach the rural 
schools which have secured the $30.00 and $15.00 sup- 
plementary libraries.

Spring Football Contest 

( »n May 17. twenty-five men contested for sweaters 
in the fi ill >\\ ing events : 

Punting— Won by Foust, '15. from Greensboro, 
X. C. Average distance of kicks, 50 2-5 yards. He 
showed the best form of all the kickers, got off his 
kicks quicker, and had less fluke kicks. 

Drop Kicking— Won by Taylor, '16, from Washing- 
ton, X. C. Average distance of kirks. 50 yards. He 
made the longest drop kick. 59 yards; his percentage 
of drops in number of trial kicks was not large. 

Passing Ball— Won by Fuller. '15. from Braden- 
town. Ma. Average distance of 45 yards. Parker. 
'16, from Bradentown, Fla., passed the ball 53 yards, 
the greatest throw, and averaged a little further than 
Fuller, but Fuller passed better to the runners. 

Catching and Passing Mall— Won by ( )ates, first 
year 'aw. from Charlotte. X. C. This contest was 
close, and hard to decide, because of the large number 
ot entries. Several men made a perfect score catch- 
ing the ball, but did not do so well when falling on 
the bal'. 

Tackling— Won by Captain Abernathy, '14. from 
.Mecklenburg County. X. C. He made a perfect 
score. 

Greatest \ll-nmnd Improvement—Won by Fitzger- 
ald, '15, from Linwood, X. C. He was a beginner, but 
showed great work in all lines. 

Examination on Rules— Won by Krvin. '15, from 
Troutman. X. C. He answered thirty-eight questions 
out of forty; and they were difficult ones. 

The kickers were slow getting off their kicks, and 
took too many steps before kicking, but this work in- 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 






creased the distances of their kicks. There was i 
siderable improvement in passing, catching, and fall- 
ing on the ball. Very few men knew the rules, and 
few could attend the night talks on them and plays. 
The greatest improvement in any of the work was 
tackling, but as that was very poor at the beginn 
there is room for considerable improvement. 

Of the seventy-five who reported, there was an 
average attendance of two days per week of the men 
who really worked, in spite of baseball games and 
practice, and work in the gymnasium, and on the track. 
If the contests had been held one week sooner, mon 
men would have entered, for examinations had begun 
and they could not spare an afternoon from their prep 
aration. 

I find that for every varsity man who engaged in 
the Spring work, there were two class team men. 
three beginners, and four scrub-team men. This 
shows there are a large class of men who want more 
coaching than they are getting in the Fall. Mow can 
four class teams get sufficient development when they 
have only one coach and one field to practice on, per- 
mitting them one day's practice a week: With a 
coach and a fie!d for each class, we will develop the 
varsity material, and will not have to depend each 
year so much on incoming players, and I most earn 
estly appeal to the alumni to make these things pos- 
sible.

THE UNIVERSITY IN LETTERS 

An excellent piece of practical investigation of rural 
school conditions is embodied in a recent monograph 
entitled Consolidation of Schools and Public Trans- 
portation of Pupils, by L. C. Brogden, Class of [896 
This monograph is the outcome of a direct personal 
investigation of the educational needs and conditions 
in representative counties of North Carolina, and also 
of indirect investigation conducted by means of ques- 
tionaires. The investigation revealed the following 
facts in regard to the limitation and inherent weak- 
ness of the one-teacher school. ( 1 ) Its lack of taxable 
area; (2) its lack of efficient school officers; (3) its 
lack of pupils; (4) its lack of teachers to divide the 
work; (5) its lack of efficient teachers; (6) its lack 
of efficient gradation and classification of pupils; 1 7 1 
its lack of efficient teaching; (8) its lack of an enriched 
course of study; (9) its total lack of high-school priv- 
ileges; (10) its great expensiveness. The conclusion 
reached after this investigation was that the "one- 
teacher type of school is without possibilities of any 
high degree of efficiency, however much salary may 
be paid the teacher, however much experience the 
teacher may have had; and that the one-teacher type 
of school, lacking in possibilities, however much im- 
provement may be attempted, to meet the educational 



needs and demands of rural life, must inevitably be 
succeeded by a larger, more permanent, more econ- 
omic, and more efficient type of rural school." 

A careful examination is then made of three at- 
tempted solutions of the problem: (1) the Union 
School; (2) the Consolidated Graded School; and (3) 
the Typical Consolidated School. Each of these plans 
is considered, ranging from the elementary to the com- 
plex, along with the allied problems of the public 
transportation of pupils. How vital this subject is 
for North Carolina may be realized when we consider 
that approximately seventy-five per cent, of all the 
rural schools of the State are yet one-teacher schools, 
a large number of which are inefficient, and might, 
without much difficulty, be transformed into con- 
solidated schools. Cumberland, Wake, and Rock- 
ingham Counties, at particular points, have under- 
taken with gratifying results the public transportation 
of pupils; and the General Assembly has now made 
provision for counties in tins State, in which con- 
ditions are favorable therefor, to undertake this work. 
In regard to consolidated schools, as exhibited by Mr 
Brogden's monograph by personal experience. Dr. J. 
Y. Joyner, Superintendent of Public Instruction, has 
-aid: "I am confident that the time has come to 
commence this work in North Carolina in many com- 
munities where the need for it is great and the con- 
ditions for it are favorable. - ' 



Two small work-, on the subject of Bible Study, 
strikingly attest the qualities of efficient spiritual 
leadership among this University's younger alumni. 
The first, a monograph, i- entitled "A Bible Study 
of Life's Problems, and was prepared by the Rev. 
Ralph Moore Harper (Class of [903), Curate of St. 
Paul's Church, Boston. This monograph is the out 
come of the Rev. Mr. Harper's experience in leading 
a class of forty or fifty men in St. Paul's; and is de- 
signed for the purpose of creating some high and 
serious thinking on religion. A careful precis is made 
of the various representative sections of the Bible here 
considered; and each lesson is followed by a section 
headed Personal Meditation, in which the larger and 
broader questions which naturally arise are clearly 
formulated. Answers are not given, as it is the pur- 
pose of the course, first, to stimulate study of the Rible 
itself, and second, to inspire the individual to study 
out for himself a number of valuable lessons for his 
own life's guidance. 



THE ALUMNI REVIEW 






The other work is a small book, entitled The Leader- 
ship of Bible Study Groups, and written by Dr. Her 
man Harrell Home. Professor of Philosophy in New 
York University (Class of [895, University of North 
Carolina). Its purpose is, c'.early, to provide the 
essentials in the training of leaders of groups of Bible 
students, especially in our colleges. It has then a dis 
tinct pedagogical note, and furthermore direct 
emphasis upon the primary place of the principle of 
activity in religious education. Though written pri- 
marily to meet the needs of Young .Men's Christian 
Associations, it will certainly be useful to Young 
Women's Christian Associations and to Bible teachers 
generally. The author has made his work one of 
particular value, in stressing the view throughout thai 
"the Bible should come to function more largely in the 
life of modern man and society, through having 
brought to it our personal and social needs and prob- 
lems for satisfaction and solution." — A. II. 



Reclaiming a Commonwealth 

Dr. Cheesman A. Herrick, President of Girard Col- 
lege in Philadelphia, has recently published a book ol 
essays which contains the following appreciation of the 
educational work which has been done in North Caro 
lina largely through the effort of University men. 

North Carolina was long considered the standing 
example of illiteracy and educational inefficiency. In 
a scientific study of education, as late as [900, she was 
placed with the lowest expenditure per capita for 
schools, and the lowest productive power per capita. 
A recent governor of the State, and a group of men 
with whom he labored, proclaimed to the people ol 
North Carolina, from the tidewater regions to the 
mountain fastnesses, that theirs was the pooresl State 
in the Union in dollars and cents, and the most illiterate 
save one. 

Knowledge of the North State's part in the Civil War 
is necessary to understand her subsequent educational 
history. Attendance upon a State reunion of Con 
federate veterans at Greensboro taught a little of how 
great had been her sacrifice, how complete net sub 
jugation. Broken and aged men. the shadow of theii 
former selves, and of the armies in which they served, 
wore in their hats what the) called a brag feather of 
the Tar Heels' Brigade, which recited their record: 
"First at Bethel, Foremost at Gettysburg, Euirthesl 
at Chickamauga, and Last al Vppomattox. North 
Carolina, it should be further said, furnished lat

never permitted sectarianism to become an issue in the 
control of her schools; North Carolina has centralized 
her education, giving economy and efficiency of admin- 
istration ; this State is leading in improved architecture 
for rural schools; and, finally. North Carolina is be- 
lieved to point useful lessons in wise and safe educa- 
tional experimentation. 



At the Front — A Comparison 

Not the least interesting feature of commencement 
week was the unveiling of the soldier boy monument, 
which has already been so fully described in the daily 
papers. Suffice it to say that Mr. John Wilson, the 
sculptor, has done his work so well that the serious 
youth and sober earnestness of his young hero in 
bronze have silenced those critics who had seen only 
photographs of the preliminary sketch, and added to 
the enthusiasm of his many admirers. 

It may interest the alumni to know that the sculptor, 
a Canadian by birth, now an American citizen and 
living in Boston, had already used the same clay that 
went into the making of our youth to make the statue 
of a soldier boy from Bath, Me., who fought for the 
Union. The lesson is significant. The unveiling of 
this monument to our students who fought in the Civil 
War calls to mind a series of valuable statistical pa] 
which Judge Beake has prepared for the Harvard 
Graduates' Magazine, the fifth paper having just ap- 
peared in the June number. These papers toll of the 
part played by Harvard men in the four years' strug 
gle, and two of them draw an interesting parallel be- 
tween Harvard and the University of North Carolina. 
This comparison includes all graduates ami students 
who went to the war. The further comparison of the 
Harvard commanders with those of the University of 
North Carolina shows the conspicuous part played by 
these institutions in the tremendous struggle. 

Judge Beake quotes from the address of Dr. Weeks 
at the centennial celebration of the opening of the 
University of North Carolina, June 5, [895: "Were* 
it possible for us to obtain a complete history of each 
one of our students in the more Southern States, it 
would no doubt be found to be a fact that our alumni. 
wherever they were, held more than their proportion- 
ate share of the places of trust and honor and of the 
posts of danger .... It seems safe to say that 
no educational institution contributed more, in pro 
portion to relative strength, than did the University 
of North Carolina." 

The "History'' of this university, by Dr. Battle, is 
then quoted as to the number of men we had in the 



Civil War, and Judge Beake continues: "These are 
stubborn facts. The statements of Dr. Weeks have 
not been contradicted. One deduction is obvious — 
that when heroic deeds were to be performed on the 
field of battle, the training of Harvard (and North 
Carolina ) produced high-minded men and competent 
leaders. 'For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt 
fruit : neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good 
fruit." 

To quote further from the Harvard Graduates' 
Magazine: "(if 2^)2 graduates and students. Presi- 
dent Battle, of that institution, mentions 1062 who 
fought for the Southern Confederacy. None of her 
sons was in the confederate navy, and of the I nion 
soldiers, only one is specified, Maj.-Gen. Francis P. 
Blair." 

We find this, however, to be an error, for among 
those receiving their degrees in i<;m. were two who 
had served in the Confederate navy, and one who had 
served in the I nion navy. 

The Magazine recapitulates; Harvard Carolina 
Union Navy — 

Rear Admiral 1 

Commander 1

Major-Generals 7 T 

Brigadier-Generals 10 13 

Colonels __ [9 50 

Lieutenant-Colonels 18 28 

Majors 21 31 

And in the summary of conclusions, we find the 
following : 

- Harvard bore on her rolls more stu- 
dents, who were Generals in the Confederate Army, 
than an) College or University, North or South. 

3. Harvard lost more men in battle than similar 
institutions, excepting the University of North Caro- 
lina. 

In this connection, a catalog of Washington Col

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 






Honors for the Faculty 

In recognition of the achievement and scholarship 

of President Venable and Prof. Charles W. I lain, 
of the Department of Creek, these two members of the 
Faculty were granted the degree of I.I..D. by the 
Jefferson Medical College, of Philadelphia, and the 
University of South Carolina, respectively, during 
the present commencement period. 

In conferring the degree upon 1 'resident Venable 
the Jefferson Medical College departed from its custom 
of honoring only doctors of medicine, he being the 
first person to receive the honor for work in any other 
field than that of medicine. Professor Bain's work 
in the classics previous to his coming to the I'm 
sity. and since, has distinguished him as a scholar of 
rare ability. The University rejoices with him and 
President Venable upon the honors so worthil) 
bestowed. 



The Summer School and the School of Law 

The University Summer School and the School of 
Law began their terms for [913, on June 11 and 12. 
respectively. 

The Summer School, two weeks after the date of 
opening, had enrolled 463 students, equaling the total 
of last year's enrollment, with the prospect of carry- 
ing the total registration well to the six hundred mark. 
The school has started its work with tine spirit, ami 
the dream of the University of making itself incr< 
ingly useful to the teachers of the State through the 
new educational building is being happily realized. 
To see four hundred teacher-students stream out of 
the ample class-rooms of the new hall is a daily sight 
which makes glad the University's innermost soul. 

On Friday. June 13, the formal opening of the 
school was held. Director Walker indicated the char 
acter of work that might he done, and Dean Graham 
bade the students welcome to their own University. 

The attendance in the School of Law was forty 
five at the end of the second week, and work was 
well under way. Miss Julia Alexander, of Char- 
lotte, the only lady in the class, has been elected ■ 
president.

New Book by Dr. Smith 

"What Can Literature Do for Me?" by C. Alphonso 
Smith. Poe Professor of English in the University of 
Virginia. Doubleday, Page & Co., Publishers. 

A book for everyone who would like to read profit- 
ably and wisely. 

A book for everyone who seeks a definite, tangible 
help in everyday life from the masterpieces of all 
time. 

So runs the publishers' announcement of Dr. 
Smith's latest book, and the characterization is suit- 
able. To this, however, may be added that the reader 
will not only find Dr. Smith's answer to the question 
full of fascinating interest, but will be impelled, if he 
is a novice in literature, to test for himself the 
accuracy of the author's conclusions. — University of 
Virginia Alumni News. 

Chance'lor J. H. Kirkland. of Vanderbilt Universitv.

sum, $200000 would lie given to the University im 
mediately for the erection ami equipment of labora- 
tories. The income from the remaining $800,000 
would be paid annually for the supporl of the depart- 
ment through the Carnegie Corporation. A condition 
of the donation provides that the direction of the edu- 
cational and scientific work of the department be com- 
mitted by the Hoard of Trusi In a board of seven 
members, three of whom shall be eminent in medical 
and scientific work. The offer, it was said, would be 
accepted. The College of Bishops of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church. South, at a recent meeting, recom- 
mended unanimously that the gift be not received. 



In study the methods by which the University of 
Wisconsin is serving the State in various ways, a 
party of fifty public officers and citizens of Philadelphia 
and other cities of Pennsylvania arranged an inspec- 
tion trip to Madison. Wis., for four days from May 
21 to May 25. The Pennsylvanians were particularly 
interested in the relation of the University to the 
State, cities, and rural communities, through the 
medium of the extension division's municipal refer- 
ence library, commercial reference library, traveling 
package libraries, correspondence study courses, health 
bureau, classwork among students in extension centers 
in all parts of the State, vocational guidance and con- 
tinuation school work, and extension work of the

THE ALUMNI REVIEW 



1860 
Washington, D. G, June 6.— It was definitely decided at 
the cabinet meeting today that Major E. J. Hale, of Fayette- 
ville, is to be appointed Minister to Costa Rica, following 
the stamp of approval placed on him by Senators Simmons 
and Overman, when President Wilson called at the Sena-te 
yesterday. — Charlotte Observer. 

1863 
John Wright Mallett writes from Fayetteville, N. C, that 
failing health and loss of sight prevent his reuniting with his 
classmates. He recalls all of his classmates, and remembers 
vividly the excitement of joining Captain Ashe's Company, 
and reporting to the Governor for service. 

1867 
Hon. Hannis Taylor, LL.D., was Inter-society Speaker at 
the joint banquet of the Societies, Monday evening. He was 
the guest of Prof. E. K. Graham. 

1870 

Prof. Alexander Graham, A.M. '85; LL.B. Columbia, '73; 
for twenty-five years superintendent of the Charlotte public 
schools, was tonight superseded by the assistant superin- 
tendent, Harry P. Harding, who has been with the city 
schools for six years. Superintendent Graham was later 
elected assistant superintendent. — News and Observer. 

1879 

Rt. Rev. Robert Strange, bishop of the diocese of Easl 
Carolina, delivered the address to the alumni <<n June 3 

1882 

Rev. Robert Thumas P>ryan, D.D., was a welcome guesl on 
the Hill during Commencement. Dr. Bryan went to China in 
1886 as a Baptist missionary. His home is Shanghai. Dr. 
Bryan is a sunny-hearted gentleman, a good speaker, with a 
fund of humor and humorous stories. His splendid work 
in China is part of the religious world's information. 

1886 

Dr. Stephen B. Weeks, of the Bureau of Education, of 
Washington, D. C, has published in the North Carolina 
Library Bulletin for June, "A Selecl Bibliography of North 
Carolina." 

1888 

The class of '88 was represented in their reunion by St. 
Clair Hester, C. G. Foust, M. L. John, \V. E. 1 leaden, and 
Victor Bryant, who are mentioned below in separate items 
As the news reporters would say they were the featun 
Alumni Day — witty and breezy, and growing mellow with 
love for the University of North Carolina. Their picture 
appears in another part of The Review. 

Rev. St. Clair Hester is rector of the Episcopal Church of 
the Messiah, Clearmont and Green Avenues, Brooklyn, N. Y. 
Mr. Hester was chief spokesman for his class at the reunion, 
and contributed much interesting information and many stories 
of his classmates. He has a fund of humor and many jokes — 
so was not allowed to escape the toastmaster's call at Alumni 
Luncheon. 

"Rev. Dr. St. Clair Hester who is rector of the Church of 
the Messiah, Brooklyn, has been observing the baseball games 
from the grandstand here the last few days, and it is interest- 
ing to hear him talk. 



"You see. he watches the games from Ebbett's $1,000,000 
field, and is on to the curves of Nap Rucker, Christy Mathew- 
son, and other favorites. He likes to see the dashes about 
the diamond, and when a coach stops a flying runner on the 
home stretch, it wearies him. He is used to seeing men who 
lose nothing by hesitation. Doctor Hester yesterday sat and 
watched the game, and without notes could call off the play- 
ers, tell their sharp points, and calculate to a nicety their 
chances for getting into a bigger show. He is something of 
a baseball compendium as well as a religious ready reckoner. 
That shocks some folks, but the perfectly pious cannot longer 
be looked up to if they neglect baseball. Mr. Dooley always 
has thought President Taft remembers more "exchampeen 
prize-fighters" than he does vice-presidents. What possible 
w n mg there can be in knowing major league pitchers along 
with minor prophets cannot be understood here. Rev. Dr. St. 
Clair Hester, of Brooklyn, will preach this morning at eleven 
o'clock to the Christ Church congregation." — Nezvs and 
Observer. 

Maxcv L. John is attorney and counsellor-at-law, prac- 
ticing at Laurinburg. N. C. 

Alexander Clifton Shaw is at present in Portland, Ore. 

Rev. Isaac W. Hughes is a clergyman in the Episcopal 
ministry, with a charge at Henderson, N. C. 

W. J. Battle, Ph.D., professor of Latin in the University 
of Texas, is also Dean of the College in the same institution.

Alex. Stronach, prominent attorney of the local bar, has 
accepted the appointment of Josephus Daniels, Secretary of 
the Navy, to the judgeship of Samoa, and will leave a week 
hence for the long sail. 

Mr. Daniels offered the appointment several weeks ago, and 
Mr. Stronach has had it under advisement. A few days ago 
he wrote .his acceptance, and July 1 will set sail on the Pacific 
for a cruise of five thousand miles, ending in the American 
Samoa. The American Samoa is under the direction of the 
naval department of the United States, and a naval officer is 
governor of the island. Mr. Stronach's duties make him sec-

died last evening shortly before seven o'clock at the home of 
his father on Asheboro Street, after an illness of several 
months. Mr. Hudson had been in declining health for some 
time, and five months ago went to Montrose in Moore County, 
in the hope of regaining his lost health, but the disease with 
which he was suffering had too strongly fastened itself upon 
him, and a month ago he returned to his home here with 
little hope of recovering. 

Mr. Hudson was twenty-five years of age, being bom here 
in 1888. In October, 1911, Mr. Hudson married Miss Pauline 
Sheep, daughter of Professor and Mrs. Sheep, of Elizabeth
