>AS born at the Cool Spring Plantation, Edgecombe County. N. C. 
on the 28th of October. 1868. He is the son of Turner W. and 
Lavinia Daniel Battle, both of North Carolina. His mother was 
the daughter of Joseph J. Daniel, who was for many years a 
Judge, first of the Circuit and afterward of the Supreme Court, and who sat 
on the bench of the latter court with Judges Thomas Ruffin and William 
Gaston. The Hon. William H. Battle was also a Justice of the Supreme 
Court for many years and was his near relative. He attended the University 
of North Carolina, entering the Sophomore Class in 1881, and while at the 
University entered the Lambda Chapter of the Phi Kappa Sigma, which was 
at that time in existence sub rosa at the University of North Carolina. He 
left the University of North Carolina in 1882, having remained there a year 
and a half. In 1886 he entered the University of Virginia, from which

RRIIzr HISTORY 



Univepsitn^ or Nopth Carolina. 



The University of North Carolina is founded on the 
Constitution of 1776. Owing to the vicissitudes of war 
and the impoverishment of the country, the charter 
was not granted until 1789. The meeting of the trus- 
tees for organization was on December iS, 1789, or the 
anniversary of the adopting of the constitution. Chas. 
Johnson, of Edentou, was chairman. 

General Benjamin Smith made a donation of twenty 
thousand acres of land in Obion County, Tennessee. 
Some years afterward sold for $14,000. 

General Wm. Lenoir was the first formally elected 
president of the Board of Trustees, the next being 
Governor Alexander Martin. 

The University was located at Chapel Hill in 1792 
by Frederick Hargett, senator from Jones ; Alexander 
Mebane, of Orange, a congressman ; James Hogg, a 
merchant, of Fayetteville; Wm. H. Hill, of Wilming- 
ton, a congressman ; David Stone, of Bertie, afterward 
governor and Federal senator; and Willie Jones, a 
commoner, from Halifax. It is said that they agreed 



on the site while eating their dinner under the "Davie 
Poplar." The citizens around Chapel Hill donated 
about thirteen hundred acres of land, which probably 
influenced the commissioners more than the cold din- 
ner under the poplar. 

The Old East was the first building. The corner- 
stone was laid on October 12, 1793, " University Day," 
by Gen. W. K. Davie, Samuel E. McCorkle, D. D., of 
Rowan, preaching the dedicatory sermon. By the 
time it was finished, the President's house, now Pro- 
fessor Gore's, was ready for occupancy. 

Person Hall (the Chemical Building), The South, 
Old West and Gerrard Hall, the last finished in 1837, 
followed in the order named. 

In 1852 Smith Hall (the Library), in 1859 the New 
East and New West, in 1885 Memorial Hall and the 
Gymnasium, in 1894 the Infirmary, were erected. 
Besides these others there was once a Steward's Hall 
in the middle of Cameron Avenue, east of the Library, 
torn down about 1846. 



The first president of the University was Joseph 
Caldwell, of New Jersey, elected in 1804, on motion of 
Judge William Gaston. Prior to that date the chief 
executive officer was called "'Presiding Professor." 
The first was David Kerr, D. D. He was succeeded 
by Charles W. Harris, of Caborrus, and he by James 
S. Gillespie. In 181 2 Dr. Caldwell gave place for four 
years to Robert H. Chapman, D. D., and then Dr. 
Caldwell held the position until his death in 1835. 
Then David Lowry Swain, late governor, was chosen 
president and held the office until 1868. From 1868 
to 1875 Solomon Pool, D. D., was president, but exer- 
cises were suspended in 1870. The doors were opened 
again in 1875 with Charles Phillips, D. D., LL. D., as 
chairman of the Faculty. In June, 1876, Kemp P. 
Battle, LL- D. , was elected president, and resigned in 
1891, in order to take charge of the Chair of History, 
George T.Winston, LL. D., the present incumbent, 
being elected to succeed him. 



The largest number of students before the civil war 
was 461, of whom 178 were from other .states than 
North Carolina. The number this year, 1895-6, in- 
cluding students attending the summer school of 1895, 

is 534- 

Summer Normal Schools were held from 1877 to 
1885, under the conduct of the Universit}-. They were 
largely attended and contributed much to the inaugu- 
ration of graded and other schools in the state. In 
1894 was begun the University Summer School, for 
the benefit of teachers, under the charge of the Profes- 
.sor of Pedagogics. 

The Law School was inaugurated in 1845, but was 
not subjected to the government of the University till 
some time later on. 

The Medical School was inaugurated in 1878, but 
was discontinued in 1885, then revived and placed on 
its present firm footing in 1890.

The University is the head of the educational system 
of the state. Its life has run for over a century, and it 
is our oldest public school. It is older than all the 
present political parties, and doubtless it will survive 
them all. 

As the life of to-day is more exacting, more complex 
and more all embracing than the life of half a century 
ago, so the university of to-day, being both product and 
factor of the larger life about it, is broader in its field 
of work, more intense in its training, freer from artifi- 
cial and conventional methods and standards and 
nearer to actual life than the university of former days. 
There is greater freedom in all things and greater .sys- 
tem in all things. There is better conduct with fewer 
rules for conduct. There is less compulsion by author- 
ity and more compulsion by public sentiment. There 
is less molding and more developing. The teacher 
no longer plaues, saws, hammers and chisels the pupil 
into the required conventional shape, but teacher and 
student are both students, both teachers, companions, 
fellow-laborers in the great work of self-development. 

The university imposes no rigid nor uniform curric- 
ulum of study. Within reasonable limits each student 
may select to suit his tastes, talents or necessities. If 
a degree is sought, the candidite must not only lay the 
broad foundation of general culture and learning, but 



must also demonstrate his power of original thought 
and prolonged investigation by some larger perform- 
ance than is involved in class-room work. The uni- 
versity requires for graduation to-day nearly twice as 
much work as it formerly did, and the quality of the 
work is even more improved. 

The university is daily coming into closer touch 
with the life of the state. It realizes that it exists for 
the good of the state. The problems before it are the 
problems that confront the state : problems of crime, 
of pauperism, of social unhappiness and disorder. It 
is training minds and training hearts and training 
bodies that will solve these problems. Its immediate 
ta.sk, and possibly its greatest, is to build up a system 
of education whereby each child in the state may 
achieve the largest possible development of all its 
faculties. It recognizes its right and its duty to be 
the head and heart of a life-giving system of education 
which carries cheer to the humblest cabin, strength to 
the weakest child, faith and hope to all that love human- 
ity. For this task it has girt its loins ; in this task it 
now labors with the zeal that comes from noble im- 
pulses and the confidence that is inspired by the clear 
perception of a splendid truth. It will not rest until 
the coals of learning from its altars have kindled fires 
that illumine the state.

TItc (HWtl Hill mtsian. 



Manj' years before the location here of the Univer- 
sity the place had become fairly well known as a camp- 
ing ground for the wagoners between Newbern and 
Salisbury ; between Petersburg and Pittsboro and other 
places to the south. The famous spring from which 
they drank is still to be found near the southwest cor- 
ner of the campus ; a small chapel stood on the lot now 
occupied by Mrs. Graves' residence. The two most 
noted hills on the roads from Petersburg and from 
Newbern were those leading up to this camping ground. 
The old Strowd hill (recently abandoned), on what is 
now called the Durham road, and the hill on the 
Raleigh road (now also abolished), lying to the north 
of Piney Prospect. 

In view of these conditions it is easy to understand 
how the place came to be called Chapel Hill; and 
doubtle.ss many a wagoner commented on the appro- 
priateness of the name when, after a hard struggle, 
late in the afternoon, he reached the camping ground 
at the summit and greeted a fellow wagoner who, even 
after a harder pull, had just brought his loaded wagon 
up the other hill. Here, after swapping stories (and 
perhaps horses), these wearj' travelers would rest under 
the shade of the oaks, already then more than a cen- 
tury old, and which for another century since have 
given pleasure and comfort to thousands of the young 



men from this and other States. Doubtless then, as 
now, everyone who has stopped on this hill long enough 
to drink the pure and never-failing water, to feel the 
delightful breezes that move across these hills, to enjoj^ 
the shade of these splendid trees, and to see the pic- 
turesque nooks and brooks that abound, has departed 
with regret. 

But few students during their college course tramp 
over the region around Chapel Hill as they should, and 
among those who were here years ago I often hear 
expressed the regret that they had not done more of 
this. Indeed, the life of the average student illustrates 
how one-sided an affair the ordinary education is. The 
average man, though himself a part of nature, seems 
to go through life with the feeling that, outside of him- 
self and his fellow-men, there is but little in nature 
worthy of his consideration. If everj- student who so 
comes to the University would, during his college life, 
spend one afternoon per week tramping over the hills 
and through the ravines within a few miles of the 
place, not .so much with a view to getting exercise, but 
with an earnest eifort to learn something about the 
.soils and the rocks, the springs and the wells and the 
trees and the shrubs and the flowers and the animals 
which may come in his way, he would not only come 
to be a more observant man, but he would gain a fund 



of information and a love of nature which would be a 
pleasure and a benefit to him as long as he lived. 

Even a casual observer can see at once that the 
countrj' which lies at the foot of the hills, to the east 
of the University, and extends on to Durham and to 
Morrisville, possesses characteristics quite different 
from those immediately about Chapel Hill. The rocks 
of this region to the east, which may be seen to begin 
at the foot of both the Stroud hill on the Durham road 
and the Cemetery hill on the Raleigh road, are com- 
paratively soft, red, brown and graj' sandstones and 
shales, which nowhere on the surface are to be seen in 
rugged angular blocks like those on the hills about the 
town. They decay more rapidly into reddish and 
grayish sandy soils, which in turn are more easily 
washed away bj* the action of running water than are 
the stiffer clay loam soils of the hills. And conse- 
quently during the past centuries and cycles of time 
the entire surface of country to the east of us has been 
worn away more rapidly and more extensively through 
the action of running water ; and now that surface is 
at a level of from loo to 200 feet lower than the country 
to the west. As a result of this difference in elevation, 
the streams which rise to the west of Chapel Hill, like 
Morgan's creek and Borlan's creek, at this greater 
elevation, and flow down into the lower sandstone 
region to the east of us, have each of them a rapid cur- 
rent, which has in each case carved out a valley or 
ravine in which it runs ; and thus it is that both to the 
north and to the .south of Chapel Hill we have the.se 
deep and narrow valleys, and between the two (on 
which the town and University are located) is a narrow 
ridge, covered for the most part by soil, though over a 
considerable portion of this surface are scattered boul- 



ders of rock, and in some cases larger masses of rock 
are exposed on the surface. 

Of the water which falls as rain upon the back of 
this ridge, the larger part of it runs off into the valleys 
with rapidity, and as it does so it washes away the .soil 
and carves out smaller irregular ravines down the 
slopes of the ridge. A portion of this water, however, 
sinks into the surface soil and reappears at the springs 
about the margins of the ridge, some but little below 
the top, like those within the University campus, and 
others nearer the base of the ridge. Still another por- 
tion of this water which sinks into the surface .soil 
gradually finds its way into the wells in the University 
campus and scattered through all portions of the town. 
Instead, then, of our drinking water which, in some 
mysterious way, flows in underground currents from 
the mountains, we drink that which falls as rain and 
soaks down through the soil immediately about us. 
The soil thus acts as a great storehouse of water ; and 
in long dry seasons, if the supply is not replenished 
from above by rains, the springs and wells sometimes 
go dry. 

It will be readily understood that this carving action 
of the water would .soon remove all of the surface soil 
of the ridge but for the fact that the surface is protected 
by the forest growth which covers it, and the rocks are 
decaying and thus furnishing new supplies of .soil 
from below. It will be readily understood, further, 
that if this decay of the rocks and washing action of 
the water is continued into the indefinite future, the 
entire ridge will be removed. But whether at that 
time the fraternity or anti-fraternity faction of the Uni- 
versity is in ascendancy — the greatest question on 
earth ; whether or not then the President has secured 



the "hearty co-operation of the students" — which he 
ought to have all the while ; or whether the University 
will at that time have opened its doors to women — as 
it ought to have done long ago ; or whether it will 
then be known who steals pants from the faculty, are 
questions which the future alone can tell. 

Rain-water and water from these springs which runs 
down slopes of this ridge, on both the north and south 
and along its eastern end, has thus carved it into all 
sorts of irregular forms, the variety of which furnish 
interesting points of studj-. One of the most interest- 
ing of these is the ravine which, starting from the New 
East building extends down through the Battle Park 
and opens out to the eastward into the valley of Bor- 
land creek. 

It is often a good plan to have some method about 
one's pleasure tramps as well as about one's work, and 
it would be a good plan if every student who feels any 
inclination to tramp over the countrj' around Chapel 
Hill would select each time some one of these little 
ravines ; start at its beginning near the top of the ridge, 
follow it along its course, observing the location of the 
springs, character of the .soil and of the trees and other 
objects lying on its route, and follow it until it opens 
out in some one of the larger valleys : later follow the 
ridges and then cross from valley to ridge and from 
ridge to valley. 

First of all, one should .see Bailie's Park, .should fol- 
low it from end to end and from side to side. He should 
see it in the spring, when its flowers are arrayed in all 
their loveliness; he should see it in the autumn, when 
the colors of the leaves of the trees and shrubs are so 
beautifully developed, and he should see it in winter, 
when the mosses and lichens and a few other hardy 
plants can be found to the best advantage. Near by 



one should see Piney Prospecl, from which he overlooks 
the sandstone valley to the east, and the view from 
which needs only a large, white farm-house and a small 
lake to make it all that one could desire. At another 
time one should wander down the brook which leads 
.southeast from the University beyond the cemetery 
(except do not look at the cemeterj' as you pass by). 
There one will find, where two little brooks come 
together," The Meeting of the Waters " where the large 
rock boulders are covered with mosses and ferns and 
the steep slopes of the hills are covered with flowers 
and shrubs and trees. 

No one who can stand the longer tramp should fail 
to visit Laurel Hill, on Morgan's creek, some two miles 
distant from the University. Here, on the steep north- 
ern slope of the hill grows luxuriantly the rhododen- 
dron or laurel, which in some mj-sterious way found a 
lodgment here and on the north slopes of the Occonee- 
chee hills near Hillsboro. This is quite diff"erent from 
the ordinary rhododendron of the mountain region, 
and grows only near the tops of the higher mountains ; 
consequently its occurrence near Chapel Hill and 
Hillsboro is difficult to explain. A mile up Morgan's 
creek from Laurel Hill, and also about two miles from 
the University, is another interesting, picturesque place, 
" Otey's Pe/real"; a place where rugged, rocky bluffs, 
covered with ferns, jasmine and other wild flowers, 
jut against the borders of the creek ; and where Bishop 
Otey, during his connection with the University, is said 
to have gone whenever he desired to retire from the 
noise and bustle of Chapel Hill to a place of ab.solute 
quiet. Just across the creek from this the kalniia, or 
ivy, that beautiful shrub which abounds all along the 
streams in our Piedmont and mountain counties, occurs 
in considerable abundance, and may be seen in full 



19 



flower in the latter part of May ; and on the bluffs a 
little higher up the stream the rhododendron or laurel 
may also be found in abundance, flowering late in April. 
In tramping toward the north from Chapel Hill, 
everyone should visit Gleyihirnie, which may be easily 
reached from the Hillsboro road by turning up Borlan's 
creek along the borders of the mill-pond ; and those 
who can bear a longer tramp (and every student can) 
should by all means visit the iron mine, which was 
opened up between 1880-82, about a mile and a half 
northwest of Chapel Hill. The size and direction of 
the deposits of iron ore to be found here can be seen 



from the map of the region published by the North 
Carolina Geological Sur\-ey, in the Report on Iron Ores, 
in which will also be found a description of the deposits 
of ore. 

These are but a few of the picturesque spots which 
may be found in every direction within a few miles of 
the University. He who searches out these places 
and visits them in that spirit which becomes a student 
will thereby add greatly to the pleasure and profit of 
his life. He who fails to do this will on many occa- 
sions have cause to regret his failure. 



HISTORY OF FACULTY. 



GEORGE TAYLOE WINSTON, B. LITT., A. M., LL. D., 
President of the Universitj', was born in Windsor, 
N. C, October 12, 1S52. His ancestors on both sides 
were native North Carolinians, being English on the 
one side and Scotch-Irish on the other. On his father's 
side he is related to the great Patrick Henrj', whose 
mother was Sarah Winston, and on his mother's side 
to Colonel William Bird, of Westover. His uncle, 
Frank W. Bird (Compan)- C, Eleventh North Carolina 
Infantrj'), led the charge of Pettigrew's Brigade at 
Gettysburg and brought out the only flag saved to the 
brigade. 

President Winston's preparatory education was re- 
ceived at the celebrated Horner School, O.xford, N. C. , 
where for three and a half years he received the train- 
ing of that great teacher, Jas. H. Horner. He entered 
the University at the early age of thirteen, and re- 
mained two years, until the troubles of Reconstruction 
closed its doors. He then entered the United States 
Navy Academy at Annapolis, having been appointed 
by Andrew Johnson. Here he also remained two 
years, but resigned on account of sea sickness and dis- 
like of the service. He was No. i in his class at the 
time. Entering Cornell University, Ithaca, N. Y., he 
was graduated with very high honors, having received 
the Latin prize and having been appointed instructor 



of mathematics in his senior year. He came from 
Cornell to the University of North Carolina in 1875, 
having been elected Assistant Professor of Literature. 
At the end of the year he was promoted to be full Pro- 
fessor of Latin and German. In 1885 he was made 
Professor of the Latin Language and Literature, and 
the department of modern languages was created with 
Professor Toy in charge. In 1 891 he was unanimously 
elected president of the University. Since his presi- 
dency the University has grown in numbers from 198 
to 534, and there has been marked expansion of the 
University in all its departments. He has fostered 
athletic sports and placed gymnastic culture upon a 
strong and lasting basis. 

President Winston belongs to some half a dozen 
national societies for the promotion of scientific, 
historical, literary-, economic or other research and 
advancement. He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa 
(Cornell Chapter), Alpha Theta Phi (University of 
North Carolina Chapter), Chi Phi (University of North 
Carolina). He was a student in the University under 
the old regime, was present at its death in 1868, and 
aided in its resuscitation in 1875. He is the only mem- 
ber of the faculty of 1875 now remaining in the 
University.

HON. KEMP P. BATTLE 
Was born near Louisburg, North Carolina, Decem- 
ber 19, 1831. He spent his early youth in Louisburg, 
Raleigh and Chapel Hill, and entered the University 
of Xorth Carolina in June, 1845, graduating in 1849, 
with the first distinction in all his studies. After grad- 
uating, Dr. Battle was for one session tutor of Latin 
and Greek and was then chosen tutor of Mathematics, 
holding this position for four years. In 1854 he began 
the practice of law, locating in Raleigh, and immedi- 
ately took a prominent part in the public affairs of 
the day. 

In 1862 he was made president of the Chatham 
Railroad Company, and was State treasurer 1865-8. 
He then retired from political life, and continued the 
practice of his profession till his election in 1876 to 
the office of President of the University of North 
Carolina. By his great zeal and activity he built up 
the University, then suffering from the effects of the 
Reconstruction period, but resigned his office in 1891, 
being succeeded by Dr. Winston, the present incum- 
bent. Dr. Battle then accepted the Chair of History, 
which he has occupied since that time. He has written 
many monographs on subjects of historical interest, 
and is a recognized authority on North Carolina 
history.

With unrelenting regularity the Old College Bell 
has i^ealed forth its thousands of strokes marking the 
approaching close of another scholastic year, and the 
class of 'go is already on the way to catch up the mantle 
about to fall from the shoulders of its predecessor. 
Everything speaks of the beginning of the end. The 
dignified Senior of thoughtful mien, upon whose mind 
are just dawning the cares and possibilities of the 
world, and who realizes with a start the fast narrowing 
strip that lies between him and the great, broad world 
beyond ; the Sophomore, carrying upon his shoulders 
the weight of worlds ; and the Freshman, — Ah ! the 
Freshman ! counting in his eager anticipation the days, 
nay, the very hours, ere he shall cast aside his fetters, 
and tread the earth a free man and a Sophomore. And 
commencement, too, his first commencement ! what a 
world of wonder and excitement and dazzling splendor 
and amazement the very word conjures up in his 
mind ! A fairy world of enchantment, of bright figures 
and tumult, while the gray old buildings look down in 
open-eyed amazement at the unaccustomed gaiety and 
bustle. Where embryonic orators awaken echoes that 
have lain sleeping for a year, and old alumni meet 
again in Society Halls to jest and joke, and remind 
envious younger members, with a sigh, of the "happy 
hours spent within these walls"; when dances, cotil- 



lions and banquets crowd closely on the others' heels, 
and leave no time forthought, and every care is drowned 
in a very delirium of joy, while the glorious waltz- 
music "builds and thrills in the souls as rose the sunny 
dome of Kubla Khan." 

How hard it is when all else is looking forward to 
and living in the future, to turn back and rake up the 
annals of a year that is gone ! Yet when the blaze and 
splendor of commencement has spent its force and only 
the dead ashes of memory are left to recall the bright 
hours that like a meteor's flash came and were gone, 
you find a sad pleasure in turning back if perchance 
you may find some precious jewel lying hid among 
the ash ; so here too we may chance upon something 
stowed away back in memory's dark and musty corners, 
some half-forgotten scene or incident that brought to 
light brings a feeling of gladness to the heart living 
over again the days of college life. 

The past year has been in many respects a most 
notable one — notable for the long upward stride of the 
University, notable for the many changes wrought in 
our lives during that time ; all of which assures us that 
the year has not been spent in vain, that we are nearer 
the goal to-day than we were yesterday, and will be 
nearer still to-morrow. Nor has this growth been one 
of surface merely. For though we may well point 



with pride to the gratifj'ing increase of numbers during 
the past 3'ear, we must look further and deeper to find 
the true spirit of the change; we must find it in the 
increased and broadening spirit of liberalit)- and toler- 
ance, in the gradual extinction of caste and class preju- 
dice, in the growing demand that worth alone be made 
the test of recognition. To it must be traced, directly 
or indirectly, every change that has come about in our 
lives. It has shown itself in the Society Halls, in the 
Lecture Rooms, on the Athletic Field, in the govern- 
ment of the University. It has asserted that men shall 
be free to follow the bent of their minds. That the}- 
shall not be hampered and tied down by old laws and 
customs which, though applicable in the time of our 
fathers, are surely not, for that reason, binding now. 
It has as.serted that vice must go, that the University 
has no place for, nothing in common with, any act or 
deed which is not in accord with the highest spirit of 
manhood and honor. 

The age is one of change, of revolution, of prepara- 
tion for a new century. All over the world men's 
minds are filled with excitement and expectation. 
War and rumors of war are rife. It is the death agon}- 
of an old centur}-. "Monies parlurif?il" — a new cen- 
tury will be born, a century of marvelous improvements 
and progress. Yet ju.st as this development must be 
attended with much trouble and toil, so also must we 
have our little eruptions and explosions. The changes 
wrought have not been without friction, for men 
wherever thej- be are loath to leave the beaten track. 
Yet we may congratulate ourselves that in the midst of 
such confusion, when there was every temptation to-turn 
back, where a false step would have meant ruin, per- 
haps, we have pressed steadily forward over rocks and 
through breakers, guided by the strong common sense 



and spirit of justice inherent in the student body, to a 
point where we may well wait to rest a season before 
renewing the struggle. For w^e mu.st not believe that 
the goal has been reached. Much work is yet to be 
done. The struggle is only just beginning, yet with 
sails ready trimmed, the anchors of custom that have 
held her chafing so long are sliding up over her bows, 
and with trusty pilot at the helm the old University 
springs forward to take her place in the race and to 
stop — only when the goal is reached. 

Everything has changed — student life and customs, 
the campus, even the very buildings themselves. One 
returning after an absence of a few j-ears might .search 
in vain for many a familiar old landmark, many a dear 
old friend, where now only a green mound serves to 
mark the spot on which once some majestic old oak or 
elm stood. Strange faces meet him at every turn. 
The roar of the dynamo and the press-room deafens his 
ears, and the glare of the arc lights dazzles his eyes. 
Disconsolate he wanders from Memorial Hall with its 
unaccustomed noise and bustle down to the old drug 
store on the corner, where once kindred spirits were 
wont to assemble on a lazy spring afternoon, where 
upturned boxes and rickety stools were made to do 
double duty, and a chair offered a tempting bait to be 
secured by fair means or foul. But even this has 
changed. A glaring sign bearing the legend, " Uni- 
versity Book Store " meets his eyes, and strange forms 
hurry past with never a thought of pausing to do honor 
to the memory — hallowed spot. The spirit of change 
has swept over all, and with a sigh he turns to go, 
when listen ! and at the sound a flood of memories 
sweep over his .soul, and blotting out the anxieties and 
toils of years carry him back to the days of his own 
college life. 



29 



Old College Bell ! thou alone hast remained un- 
changed through all the ceaseless turmoil and confu- 
sion of the little world which has swept and surged 
about thy feet. From thy home in the cobwebbed 
tower thou hast kept faithful guard over thy sleeping 
charges through the silent watches of the night ; thou 
hast called them forth to a new day's duties ; thou hast 
gone with them through all of its pleasures and sor- 
rows. How often on the eve of some hotly contested 
struggle on the Athletic Field hast thou poured forth 
in ringing tones, mad and joyous, the glorious tidings 
of Victory f Victory/ and honor for old University of 
North Carolina, until in thy mad glee, thy very throat 
seems bursting with the clear, strong, exultant notes, 
" rising and falling, echoing and interlacing in endless 



curves of .sound, orb within orb, intricate, wonderful," 
while the stately old oaks unbend their dignity and 
their branches leap and dance, " Keeping time in a 
sort of Runic rime to the music of the Bell." How 
often hast thou, when our hearts were weighed down 
with the despair of defeat, soothed and healed our 
wounded spirits, while the air throbbed in unison with 
thy sounds, and the lonely owl from out his home in 
the dark oak returned his answering note. Old Bell, 
thou hast indeed bound our hearts to thee with hoops 
of steel, and as thy sounds are borne on forever through 
the limitless extent of space, never stopping, never 
ceasing, so shall they continue forever to ring and echo 
within our hearts.

•:• •;• THE LAW CLASS. •:• •:• 



The Summer Law School had hardly closed when the 
Law Class of 1895-96 entered the University' for weal 
or woe. Though not quite as large as the preceding 
class, it can be truthfully said that it consists of much 
fine material and, in all probability, will give to the 
state some of its greatest lawyers. 

They are a studious, diligent, hard-working lot of 
boys, and many of them have already shown the grit 
and tenacity that is necessary to attain success. 

But it is not the intrinsic merit of the University 
law students that make them stand .so well in the eyes 
of the world. 

They could hardly fail to succeed after having been 
privileged to imbibe the words of wisdom and advice, 
and listen to the instructive lectures and master the 
well selected cour.se of legal instruction provided by 
Dr. Manning. 

Many are the virtues that we find in the genial pro- 
fessor of law ; gentle, kind and sympathetic, yet withal 
exacting enough to require faithful and honest work, 
he has idolized himself with his students. 

THE MOOT COURT. 

In addition to the regular course of instruction, the 
boys conduct a Moot Court everj' Saturday night, and 
it is of wonderful benefit to them. It is there they 



polish up for the active work they are about to engage 
in and secure the very practice they need. 

Some of the cases conducted by the members of the 
present class were very adroitly managed, and much 
interest has been shown and many strong arguments 
made. 

THE MOOT CONGRESS. 

The members of the class realizing that it is expected 
of a lawyer that his knowledge be not confined to the 
law alone, early in the spring .session organized a Moot 
Congress, .sessions of which are held regularly every 
Monday afternoon. The Congress has been of very 
great advantage to the class. 

The members introduce and discuss such public 
questions as they see fit, and advance such ideas as 
they think wise. It has been liberally patronized and 
promises to be a regular feature of the Law School. 

The Historian rejoices that the year has been so 
pleasantly and profitably spent, and although his func- 
tion is to chronicle past events, he takes the liberty of 
predicting bright futures and successful careers for his 
class-mates, and with the sincerest gratitude thanks 
our professor for his devotion to the class, as shown by 
his faithful work and the many courtesies shown its 
members. With best wishes for all. 

The Historian.

It is with a feeling of the greatest pride that the 
historian finds it his privilege to discuss the merits of 
the Class of '96, the largest, most accomplished and 
perhaps the "Hansoniest" that has ever graced the 
walls of our noble institution, and according to 
"Dick" we are much superior to either of the two 
preceding classes — '95 was "no good" and '94 ran 
away with his bones. Of course nothing like stealing 
bones will apply to '96. 

It would be impossible to give a connected history 
of the class, for many have been the deserters, and 
others have been added to the roll, so that we can 
scarcely say it had a beginning, but it is an evident 
fact that Chemistry and Materia Medica will play an 
important factor in its ending. 

Perhaps no class in college can boast a greater 
variety of characters of every description imaginable. 
Verily the wilds of Western North Carolinia and 
"The Land Beyond the Woods" have furnished us 
with " Hoosiers," while the Sand Banker is not found 
wanting; Joyner is almost the peer of Sullivan and 
the equal of JimCorbett; while little " Nick" spends 
the hours of twilight weeping for his mamma. 

From the athletic field we have not been absent. 
Graham has distinguished himself as right fielder on 
the baseball team, and in football Steele is not slow ; 
and what would the Glee and Mandolin Club do with- 



out our " Funk," who prides himself as almost a 
musician. Our record in the class-room is one that 
is able to stand for itself, and the class is credited by 
our honored preceptor as being the best and most 
studious ever under his instruction, and well may he 
say it when more than two-thirds of the class made 
over ninety-five per cent on anatomy. And right here 
it would be well to speak of our able and beloved 
instructor, Richard H. Whitehead, whom we have 
found to be not only a teacher, but a kind and 
sympathetic friend, and there is not a man in the class 
who will not carry through life an indelible impres- 
sion of his noble nature, and ever see in him an ex- 
ample of the man, the doctor and the scholar worthy 
of the highest efforts to emulate. The year has been 
one of pleasurable profit and a long step forward in 
the embryonic stages of the occult sciences and the 
magic of the philosopher's stone, and let us all hope 
that it may develop in an M. D. of the highest type, 
and that each one may win for himself great dis- 
tinction in this glorious profession. 

When we have attained all the powers of the 
"Healing Art," and when in the whirl of a physi- 
cian's life, happy indeed shall we all look back with 
pleasant recollections of the bygone days of the White 
and Blue, when the first principles were so thoroughly 
taught us. Historian.

r /^OMMENCCAAEMT. 



Ah, love seemed to shine 
III Maud's lovely eves ! 

With rapture divine, 
All smiles and no sighs, 

I thought she was mine — 

At Commencement. 



My number was naught, 

I found out full soon : 

She gave me no thought, 

"A cute Gimghoul spoon " 
Was all she had sought — 

At Commencement. 

Klizabeth's grace 

Was light as a puff 
Of air, and her face. 

Caught me in her fluff 
Of ribbons and lace — 

At Commencement. 

But that dimpled face 
Concealed a coquette — 

She wore 'mid her lace 
My captured rosette. 

And left me no trace — 

At Commencement. 



And Katie's so winning — 
Who wore Cupid's flag. 

For mere fun of pinning 
M)- blue and white " rag ! " 

Then sent my heart spinning — 
.\t Commencement. 

Though deep went that dart, 
I found love a failure : 

Too soon did we part. 
But she wore my i egalia 

Right over her heart ! — 

At Commencement. 

Well, three may forget. 

I'd leave law or clinic 
To talk to one yet ; 

For I am no cj-nic. 
Though girls will coquette — 

At Commencement.

Together with the

Ibistor? of Sbakeepeare Club. 



The Club is composed of forty-seven members and 
meets monthly, at the call of the president, for consid- 
eration and discussion of Shakespeareans primarily. 

Frequently, however, the evening is devoted to the 
Greek, Roman. French or German Drama. 

The Club is mainly the organ of the senior class in 
literature. It furnishes the medium of expression for 
the best literary thought in the Universit}\ It stimu- 
lates and encourages independent investigation of criti- 
cal questions. 

For instance, if the evening were devoted to the 
heavy plays of Shakespeare, such papers would be pre- 
sented as : " From Tavern to Throne, or the Develop- 
ment of Hal's Character; " " Henry V. on the Throne, 
or Shakespeare's Ideal King;" "The Resurrection 
of Falstaff, or the Merry Wives of Windsor." 

Should the evening be given to the German drama. 



such an author as Lessing would be discussed as he 
appears in Minna Von Barnhelm, Emilia Galotti and 
Nathan der Weise. 

The relation which the Club sustains to other En- 
glish Literature than Shakespeare can be seen from 
such a programme as this : Two dramatic methods of 
treating the .same subject — Marlowe's Jew of Malta 
and Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice ; Narrative and 
dramatic method contrasted in Chaucer's Knights' 
Tale and the Two Noble Kinsmen of Shakespeare and 
Fletcher ; Browning's Paracelsus, a drama of the 
inner life ; The influence of the Latin comedj' on 
Shakespeare. 

These are not fanciful subjects, but were actually 
discussed during the past year, and serve to show the 
great benefit of the Club and the important place it 
occupies in University life.

DIES IRy^. 




O day of wrath ! that awful day, 

When " Wince" shall hither turn his way 

And fall upon nie as his prey ! 

My quaking heart shall fear his face, 
My strength will then have run its race. 
When he shall swiftly judge my case. 

His voice, with pealing trumpet's blare, 
Resounding from his head (less hair). 
Shall call me to his awful lair. 



Strength shall be stupefied, and thought 

Into a chaos quickly wrought 

When I th' avenging wrath have caught. 

() wretched me ! what shall I plead 
In that hour of my greatest need, 
When like a 'possum I am treed? 

His great "probation " list he'll bring 
And from me great confession wring, 

Mv stricken carcass homeward fling ! 



This dreaded judge shall then bring out 
What has been hidden, without doubt. 
And every thought of safety rout. 

O day of wrath ! O tearful dav ! 

When "Wince" shall hither turn his way. 

Be still far distant, this I pray !

HISTORY OF Y. M. C. A. 



The Young Men's Christian Association of the Uni- 
versity was organized in May, i860, being among the 
first college associations of the world. Little, however, 
can be said about its early history, for it was soon to per- 
ish in the troublous times of war. It was revived in Sep- 
tember, 1876, to fill out a longer and more useful life. 
Ever since its revival the work and influence of the 
association have been steadily increasing until now it 
occupies a prominent place in our university life. 

This year we have a strong association. It is evident 
the students take an active interest in the organization 
from the fact last year and this over nine thousand dol- 
lars have been subscribed toward a building. 

The association is the center of the religious life of 
the institution. This will be more keenly realized 
when we have a building which we hope to make the 
home of the religious life of the student body. 

The association has done much and is going to do 
more toward making men feel at home when they 
first come into our midst. 

A handbook is gotten out each year. This contains 



useful information about college and surroundings, 
boarding places and prices. 

A notable feature of the work is the reception for 
new men, given the first Saturday evening of each 
school j-ear. Here the students are welcomed by 
Christian workers and members of the faculty. Here 
they meet old and new, which helps to make us one. 

There is a short service the first three nights of each 
week, led by students, a service each Thursday night, 
led by a village pastor or a member of the faculty. 

A fall campaign is conducted at the beginning of 
.session. Men are met at trains and welcomed. Soon 
after college opens each man is solicited to join the 
association and to enter Christian work. 

The organization is by no means isolated in its work, 
but keeps in close touch with the great movement of 
which it is a part. By means of the state, district and 
international conventions, the summer schools at 
Northfield and Knoxville and such gatherings, the 
association is enabled to keep pace with the improved 
methods of work and thereby render more valuable 
service to the students of the institution.

know of a sprite who lives in tlie Jarl<, 
Damp sliade of a fern-covered dell, 
Away down a winding glen in a park. 
Whose walks widely known are and well. 

Of wily eavesdropper, he carries the name, 

Close hid in the cool marsh grass, 
And never this brownie's ears tingle with shame 

For list'ning at people who pass. 

And though him, perhaps, you may never have seen. 

Be sure he is there without fail, 
And you best speak low, or elsewise, I ween, 

He'll hear every word of your tale. 

1 saw him first wlien the new full moon 

Was climbing a sweet June sky : 
When the soft night air was all a-tune 

With the breeze songs wandering by. 

When 1 held a small hand, and — and — well, I'll swear! 

1 did not contract to tell this— 
You just remember there's an Eifin down there — 

A rascal who'll tell of a kiss.

liitepapy Spirit. 



Literary spirit is not a reality but a potentiality in our University ; not 
an fssc but a posse. There is a field for it ; there are noble thoughts that 
ought to be nobly expressed ; there are clubs— literary, historical, scientific, 
philosophical, philological— in which papers have to be read, but in all more 
emphasis is laid on 7t'/ia/ is said than on /low it is said. There is a weekly 
paper, two quarterlies and one annual, and in all beauty of form is not wed to 
beauty of idea. 

We need to recognize form in literature; that to say a thing well is as 
important as to .say it at all, that a pleasing method of expression means a 
pleasant production. 

There ought to be a college monthly maintained by student articles. The 
University Magazine was only nominally edited by the students. There was 
no literary spirit to support it and it did not create any such .spirit. Enough 
theses are written, research made, class exercises required in the upper classes 
to furnish adequate material for a college monthly if put in proper shape. The 
weekly paper has no space for such lengthy articles as could appear in a 
monthly. Supported, then, by students, it would create the spirit that would 
sustain it. Thus, literary spirit, the absence of which we deplore and the pres- 
ence of which we desire, would in some sense be stimulated, and the effort they 
made, if itself not successful, might at least point the way to more intelli- 
gent action. 




132 



SOCIAL LIFE AT THE UNIVERSITY. 



One of North Carolina's elite was heard to remark at 
last commencement, " What a dear old place Chapel 
Hill is. I'd just love to live here always. There's so 
much fun ; something going on all the time." She 
forgot that at that time Chapel Hill was doing every- 
thing to entertain her visitors and that when relieved 
of her duties as hostess there is nothing " going on ! " 
There are only a very few young ladies in the village, 
and, as calling upon the faculty is very unjustly re- 
garded in the wrong light by many men, the social life 
must of a necessity find its outlet in the societies and 
clubs of the university. 

There is no more erroneous impression than the one 
that a man is nothing unless he belongs to a fraternity. 
There are many non-fraternity men in the University 
who are more deserving than some of their more fort- 
unate brothers, and yet we are safe in saying that the 
great majority of the " wit, talent and aristocracy" of 
college is to be found among the fraternity men, and 
they are the social leaders of student life. The frater- 
nities are twelve in number, and at the opening of each 
year there can be witnessed a quiet and friendly war 
as these struggle hard in the " spiking" or " rushing " 
of new men. 

A Freshman, if he looks not too green, is at once 
taken to some man's room " for a few days until he can 
get settled," while some member of a rival frat takes 
him to walk to Piney Prospect and Battle's Park. He 
is feasted at Yearby's and Trice's and receives every 



attention from the older members of the rushing frater- 
nities, while all the time the advantages, social stand- 
ing and honors of each are constantly drummed into 
his ears by their representative men, until he finally 
gives the fatal pledge and finds himself dropped 
for some more uncertain brother. He has now 
learned to notice badges, and in a short while he is heard 
to ask some friend "What is that Sphinx with a Pi 
Sigma on it? "' and when he learns that it is a Freshman 
Society he at once sets about to secure an invitation, 
if possible. 

In his Sophomore year his ambition is entirely de- 
voted to Theta Nu Epsilon, the great inter-collegiate 
Sophomore Society. If this is successfully achieved, 
there still lies before him the hardest problem of all, 
which must be solved in Junior year. Gimghoul is 
the most exclusive of all, and, in virtue of its age and 
class, still holds the prestige among the class societies. 

With this system there is one danger, which should 
be carefully guarded against. They should never be 
regarded as an end aimed at, but only as a means for 
personal development, and in the latter case will be 
found of the greatest possible advantage to any man. 

The German Club is composed of forty men and 
gives two dances annually. At these, however, it is 
possible to have only a very few couples. 

The Social Club is entirely restricted to members of 
the facultv, and deserves no mention here. 



133 



A COnMENCEHENT ROHANCE. 



"And to think we are in dear old Chapel Hill." 
The carriages were coming in from the train packed 
with girls and visitors. The pleasures of Commence- 
ment Week had just begun. From one of the 
carriages Will Raj-mond descended with his mother 
and sister and a friend of the latter, Miss Monmouth, 
who had made the above remark. " Yes," said Will, 
" now you are under my jurisdiction." And as soon as 
they had taken seats in the hotel parlor he gave 
evidence of his superintendence by handing her a list 
of her commencement engagements. At his special 
request Ethel Monmouth had attended the finals with 
Will's mother and sister, old acquaintances of hers. 
He had reserved the appointment with her for the 
final dance for himself, but either from an excess of 
modesty or a desire to arouse her curiosity his name 
was not on the list. "We will find an engage- 
ment for that evening somewhere," said Will, with a 
significant look, which she hardly understood. While 
they were busy commenting on her appointments 
Herbert Atkins entered the parlor, shook hands with 
some acquaintances of his, and was about to leave 
when he caught sight of Raymond and Miss Mon- 
mouth. He nodded to Will, hesitated, and with a 
perceptible flush walked up to Miss Monmouth and 
extended his hand. 

"Oh! Mr. Atkins, you here? " said Ethel in wonder; 
" I never dreamed of such as this." And another party 
blushed deeply. " Nor I," said Atkins ; " it is indeed 
a pleasant surprise- " And he colored again. Will Ray- 



mond was somewhat surprised at such warm greet- 
ings, and as they entered the dining room questioned 
Ethel. "Oh! I met Mr. Atkins last summer while 
on a visit, and he was so nice," she replied ; " it is such 
a strange thing my not knowing he was here" 

It was rather a strange coincident. While himself on 
a vist Herbert Atkins had met Ethel Monmouth, and 
during his stay had become deeply interested in her. 
Her sweet and cheerful disposition and her pleasing 
frankness had fairh- captivated him. 

His visit had been suddenl)- interrupted just when he 
was becoming conscious that, somehow, he was hap- 
piest in her presence. He had not seen her since, but 
he had not forgotten that handsome face. Atkins left 
the hotel in a state of happy yet nervous excitement, 
his mind filled with the thought of her whom he had so 
unexpectedly seen, the memory of whose charming 
personality had so continually possessed his mind. 

He wondered what could be her relation to Ray- 
mond, and was uneasy at the thought. He passed 
several acquaintances at the post-office, and while 
talking to a friend heard a student near by remark to 
another. " Sa}-, Tom! did j'ou see Will Raymond's 
friend. Miss Monmouth at the hotel? Isn't she a 
beauty though? Will is lucky; Miss Raymond 
told me that she and Will are as good as engaged." 
Atkins broke off in the middle of a sentence at this 
confirmation of his fears, and went hurriedh' to his 
room. How cheerless it seemed there to night. The 
old student's lamp wouldn't half burn. 



1.14 



The next day he saw Ethel at the hotel, and at his 
request Ethel innocently made an appointment with 
him for the final ball. "It is the only one I have 
open," said she. How sweetly she smiled to him. 
Could he even — hope. So she smiles to Raymond 
and to everyone, thought he : it is her cheerful nature. 
When Ethel told Will of her final appointment he 
started, but concealed admirably his vexation and 
dismay, especially as she seemed verj- much satisfied 
with her engagement. Herbert saw her at odd 
moments when he could for the next day or so, 
although she was naturally most of the time with 
Will's mother and sister — and Will — he was so at- 
tentive. 

The last dance was at hand. 

What joy was Herbert's that night with such a 
partner. The ball-room seemed a fair}' land. Will 
was there in full glory, he was chief marshal for 
i88 — , and paid, of course, much attention to Ethel. 
Herbert tried not to feel jealous of his attention, but 
when Will had bestowed on her his regalia ; when she 
had thanked him with that sweet smile of hers, his 
dejection brooked consolation. How queenlj' she 
looked with Will on the floor ! What a pair it will 
make, thought he. And he stifled more unpleasant 
emotions. 

At last the dance ended. Herbert escorted his fair 
partner to the hotel, and in bidding her good-night 
managed with an effort to congratulate her on her 
success. "Yes," said .she, and rather indifferently, 
Herbert thought, and he was all ears, " Will is a fine 
boy and an especial friend of mine. I certainly ap- 
preciate his kindness." 

" A friend of yours, ' ' murmured Herbert, slowly and 



disconsolatel}', with an unconscious accent on friend. 
" A friend of yours," he repeated, with an unvoluntary 
sigh. " Yes," said Ethel, brightly, " decidedly a friend. 
I don't care for him, although I have tried to, and he 
has been so nice to me." She raised her face to 
Herbert's with a confidential and affectionate air; his 
heart throbbed, oh ! so intensely as he gazed in her 
large eyes and saw — hope? — yes, love. He drew her 
softly aside into the hotel corridor ; he seized her white 
hand in a frenzy of delight, murmuring his devotion 
to her. Her reply was a look full of trust and of love. 
As if conscious that in itself it were lonely and in- 
complete his white dress-tie sought the company of a 
pale-blue bow on her bosom; and this harmony of 
two hearts, this union of the white and the blue, this 
latest e-scapade of Cupid in the Old North State, was 
sealed with a kiss. 

Just then Will Raymond entered the hotel hurriedly 
to have if but a momentary tete-a-tete with Ethel. 
She had not seemed so full of regard for him that 
night as usual, and he was anxious to speak with her 
and allay suspicion that was at least uncomfortable. 

He brushed by the couple — stopped, as if suddenly 
petrified —could he believe his eyes ! — turned crimson 
and then pale, and with an inward groan, reeled out 
of the door. Ethel's beaming face, Herbert's ecstatic 
look, a crushed sleeve, his own regalia in a rumpled 
and disorderly state, had told him only too plainly a 
tale he needed not to hear from human tongue. 

Next morning on entering the hotel Raymond's 
room-mate saw Atkins driving gaily with a handsome 
girl for the train, and opening the dining-room door 
called to a waiter: "Jesse, carry Mr. Raymond's break- 
fast up to him. He is not well this morning."

Can never come my way.

Sleep ! sleep ! ! sleep ! ! ! 

On my bed of downy ease, 
And I would that Wince would let me 

Sleep just as much as I please. 
Oh ! well for the happy Seniors, 

Who prayers no more attend; 
Oh ! well for the happy Juniors, 

Whose pra\iug so soon will end. 
And the college bell rings on 

In the belfry above my head ; 
But oh for a " grat " on prayers, 

And five minutes more in bed. 
Sleep ! sleep ! ! sleep ! ! ! 

In a bed of softest ease ; 
But I'll never get a morning nap 

Nor sleep as much as I please.

Fresh ! fresh ! ! fresh ! ! ! 

How awfully fresh I must be. 
For every time they see me 

They all yell "fresh," yon see. 
Oh ! well for the happy Senior, 

Who's Freshman da3s are gone. 
Oh ! well for the sporty Junior, 

Who looks on the " Fresh " with scorn. 
And the Freshman class goes onward. 

Advancing by rapid degree ; 
But I'll never get my " sheep-skin," 

This Math is so hard for me. 
Math ! Math ! ! Math ! ! ! 

That's one thing I ne'er could see. 
And unless I can boot old Bill}-, 

It'll surely go hard with me.

Where silvan- shadows dwell 
In slumb'rous summer's heat, 

To murmuring waters' spell — 
Whose dimpling, dancing feet 
Here lingers when they meet — 

Fair Nature set her mark 
In this serene retreat — 

On dear old Battle's Park. 

Bright brooks whose ripples swell 

O'er snowy pebbles, beat 
Time to young hearts — a bell 

With spring's own joy replete. 

Far from the world effete, 
Bowered in its foliage dark, 

Young love knows no defeat 
In dear old Battle's Park. 

But it will never tell. 

Though many a rustic seat 
In green, and dusky dell. 

Records some trysting fleet. 

And love doth oft repeat. 
On shining aspen bark. 

The name of lady sweet — 
In dear old Battle's Park. 



ENVOY. 
Should I my song secrete, 

Up-winging like the lark, 
'Twould voice my love complete 

For dear old Battle's Park.

Sing a song of summer school, 

Campus full of girls ; 
Five and fifty " Freshmen " 

In petticoats and curls. 

When the school was open 

On every summer morn. 
Wasn't that a dainty class 

That studied under Horn? 

Girls in every class-room 

Studying with joy^ 
Learning how to " parlez-vous," 

" A la Monsieur Toy." 

Basking with our Baskerville, 

Knocking sciences silly. 
Tackling " math " or " trig " with wills. 

To delight of "Billy." 

They had reached our hearts before. 

Now they reach our heads ; 
The "Coming Woman's" come, boys — 

Hurrah ! for the "co-eds." 

So sing a song of summer school. 

Campus full of girls ; 
Five and fift}- "Freshmen "

This ancient and most honorable Order was founded 
in the j'ear 1030 b. c. b3- King David in the land of 
Judea. 

It came to pass that this old gentleman had a son, 
Absalom by name, who was full-back on the University 
of Jerusalem team, and who persisted in wearing his 
hair extremely long throughout the year. Now this 
young man was out riding one morning when his horse 
became frightened at a passing bicycle and dashed oif 
through the woods. The hair of this young man be- 
came entangled in the branch of a tree and he was left 



hanging there, where soon after he died with the words 
" To h — 1 with Va." on his lips. 

The father, who chanced to pass that way soon after, 
discovered the body hanging there, and in the bitter- 
ness of his grief cried out, "Oh, Absalom ! my son ! 
my son! Why would )'0U wear long hair?" After the 
funeral the old man returned to his home and straight- 
way founded the Association of Tonsorial Art, which 
has waxed great and multiplied exceedingly, and saved 
the lives of 13,691 footballists from a similar fate.

Well, boys, you ask me what I think 

LIv them there faculty? 
Well — 'tis most mighty hard to jedge 

Such men as they mought be. 

There's that man Wince, who runs the things 

An' talks squar' throo his nose, 
An' speaks before them Baptist men, 

Mv ! how he talks an' blows ! 



That man called " Ven " is mighty quare- 

A sort uv half-way cook. 
He biles an' fries tliem kemistries 

An' puts 'em in a book. 

Then ther's that little Englishman, 

Who talks so very game. 
An' sez, if you don't shet your mouth 

He'll call you out by name ! 

The boys jest love to worry him. 

An' he can cuss a slew. 
He's down on them athletix things, 

An' pants, an' " Tar Heels " too. 

Biit oM man Muucher's in the game, 

An' plays the limit too ; 
He spends his time a dressin' fine 

An' sayin' " parlee-voo.' 

An' Jakie Ball's a kind of uv crank, 

A keen uu' some folks think. 
He sells old clothiu', digs in wells. 

An' makes the money chink. 

He's mighty bad on blud-hounds, too, 

An' turkeys in his line. 
He makes a good detective, tracks 

Them pinted shoes most fine !

Well, Billy Cain's jest out uv sight, 

A levin' man you know. 
He likes good grub an' " Sikes's Best," 

An' fiddles with the bow. 

By far the greatest freak uv all

He'll look out fur a job. 

He talks too much from out his mouth. 

An' gases like a swell, 
An' walks out on Geology 

An' gives them students h 1 ! 

Lord Alderman is purty keen. 

An' walks so mighty high 
That while his shoes is stuck in mud. 

His head jest sweeps the sky!

An' get a gatliu' gun. 
Or they will swing me up, and spile

^ ^prinfitittue ^b^L 



One lazy spring afternoon, when budding leaves, 
soft and velvet}', and the balmiest of airs were telling 
their story of renewed life and joy, and a soft, gentle 
haze overspreading all, marked the near approach of 
the "Tassel time of Spring," I without great trouble 
persuaded myself that "much study was a weariness 
to the flesh," and that for a while at least, "Conies" 
and "Psyche" and "Pol. Econ.," and all the rest of 
their tribe might well enough take care of themselves, 
even if they were a " once-a-week recitation." And so 
tossing a Tacitus here and a Dewey there, I hastened 
out of my hot, stuff"y room to spend an afternoon in 
lazy contentment, drinking in the beauty and freshness 
of the wondrous new world about me. Instinctively my 
footsteps turned toward an old friend, one whose ac- 
quaintance I had formed in that first wonderful week of 
my college life — the old " Davie Poplar," that stretches 
its huge limbs just across in front of the open end of the 
Quadrangle, fit companion to the movable shaft com- 
memorating the deeds of a university president. A 
royal bed of .softest clover invited to repo.se. And 
stretched at full length I dreamily watched the wreaths 
of smoke curling upward from my faithful old brier- 
wood to the green branches above, where it seemed 
to me that fairy hands caught them up and, twist- 
ing them into a thousand fanciful shapes and figures, 



carried them on up, up, up until they were lost in the 
feathery clouds in the distance. Soon the orchestra of 
nature lulled me into a half-waking sleep with its 
myriad notes, and I fancied that I saw up among the 
green branches countless tiny figures and the rustling 
of the leaves was the harmony of countless joyous 
voices mingling in one grand diapason of love and 
honor for the common father of them all. This is the 
song that I heard — the song of the "Old Poplar 
Tree " : 

" Long, long ago, far beyond the memory of living 
man, when the first shot had not yet been fired that 
was to blaze the way to a nation's freedom, and 
powdered wigs and fair damsels held high revel at a 
governor's ball in the Capital City, I was born a lusty 
young sprig of the forest. And as I grew up, waxing 
strong in the clear warm sunlight, the mocking-bird 
come to build its nest among my branches, and the 
squirrel found protection against the murderous arrow 
of the young Indian brave. And my happiness was 
complete. 

"But soon there came a change. The atmosphere 
grew dark and sulphurous and the setting sun was 
bathed in blood. I heard the distant rumble of the 
mighty engines of war, and now and then the sharp 
crack and rattle of the musketry as the contending 



144 



hosts drew nearer and then surged away. Birds and 
beasts fled shadow-like through the silent forest, and 
even the blue jay forgot its accustomed notes. 

"The years passed and the war clouds rolled away, 
but the spell was broken. Soon the axe of the pale 
face found its waj- into the heart of the forest and I 
saw, with many a misgiving, my brothers and friends 
fall before its merciless stroke. And now a home and 
then another sprung up, and a little chapel of the cross 
— the chapel of New Hope Hill — slowly arose, where 
some adventurous preacher now and then assembled 
the neighbors on a peaceful Sabbath morn to treat 
them to the luxurj' of an orthodox sermon. And 
where, after the services were over, the hardened 
sons of toil were wont to assemble in little groups, 
the women to compare notes on house-keeping and 
economy, while the proud owner of a new calico dress 
was the envy of ever\- heart ; the men to discuss the 
latest news brought by the great covered wagons on 
their way back from Petersburg. And with what eager 
animation did they listen to the recountal of what was 
going on in the great broad world beyond, echoes of 
which came now and then to their wondering ears. 
Of how Washington had been called from his home to 
take the presidency of the new republic, and how, in- 
spired by example, France also was preparing to hurl 
her throne to the ground, to trample it in the dust. 

" And now the scenes change with ever increasing 
rapidity, and I beheld first a little party of men making 
their way through the woods, hunters they must be. 
But no, they are not like the brawny hunters of the 
forest. Their skins are fairer, and their dress is finer. 
See, they come directly to the spot where I stand shak- 
ing with a nameless dread— dread of the pale face and 
his axe and his fire, and the other terrors that follow 



in his wake. But no, they prove friendly, and pleased 
with the grateful shade which, in my desire to pro- 
pitiate, I cast about them ; they stretch themselves 
upon the green turf to partake of their noon-daj' meal 
and to admire the wonderful beauty of my brothers 
and sisters, clothed all in holiday attire of royal purple 
and golden hues. And my heart swelled with joy 
and pride when I heard them say among tliem,selves, 
'Surely this is the place; here shall we establish the 
mighty institution of learning which, like the young 
tree of the forest, shall grow and wax strong and send 
out its huge branches in every direction, and whose 
influence, as the years roll on, shall penetrate into the 
remotest corner of this broad land and shape the destiny 
of a people.' 

" Spring came and went again, and the young fledge- 
ling essayed his untried wings, while the mother 
chirped encouragement, as she taught him this first 
great lesson of his life. And when the trees were again 
changing their mantle of green for one of russet and 
brown, they returned, and winding down the narrow 
road I beheld a long line clad in garments of wondrous 
cut, while at their head marched one erect and stately, 
a leader of men. And they came again straight to 
where I stood, and there he of the commanding 
presence spoke with his fellow men, and they signified 
their pleasure at his words. Thus was the corner-stone 
of a universitj- laid. 

"Then all was confusion. The ring of the axe and 
hammer awoke the echoes of the sleeping woods, and 
a huge builcling slowly reared its head among the tree- 
tops, while the blue jay expressed his disapproval 
from my topmost branch. Soon the doors were thrown 
wide, and first one student and then another came and 
my heart was filled with gladness at my new-found 



145 



friends. Morning and evening would they come to 
lie at my feet while I sang to them of the past and the 
limitless possibilities of the future, and life was one 
' grand sweet song. ' 

" Three-quarters of a century passed away and I heard 
again the dull wrathful mutterings of war, and saw 
with proud, sad heart my foster children go forth to 
do battle for their country's freedom. And the tramp 
of the invading hosts shook the earth, and the rivers 
were dyed with blood in that mighty death-struggle 
from which so few were to return. Peace and quiet 
came again— the quiet of exhaustion, and I beheld the 
remnants of once proud armies limp slowly past in 
search of homes they would never find. And the beasts 
of the forest roamed through empty halls, and the owl 
built her nest in the silent belfry. 

"The years rolled on. Once more the doors were 
thrown wide, and joyous voices rang through long 
deserted halls. [And here I detected a note of sadness, 
as of ' old, unhappy far-off things. '] 

"But a new generation had arisen that knew not nor 



cared for the Old Poplar Tree. My race is run. I soon 
must take my place with the other fallen monarchs 
of the forest, to be forgotten by those I have loved 
and cherLshed most." 

And here the voices died away in a moan, and I 
awoke to find that night had fallen. 

Old Poplar, thy race is indeed nearly run. Other 
thoughts, other desires engro.ss men's minds. The 
glare of the electric lights dazzles thy eyes, dimmed 
with a century's age, and a long bare pole raises its 
hideous length from thy very feet. The little feathered 
songster no longer pours out his .soul in liquid chant 
among thy boughs. Soon thy time-bent trunk, loaded 
with memories, as the trunk-shaped trophy of old, 
must fall before death's inevitable approach and a 
generation that cares not for thy memories. But for 
those that know thee and love thee well, thou shalt 
ever remain a guiding light in the shadowy "vale of 
remembrance ;" 

" Photographically lined 
I'pon the tablets of our mind."

The '96 HellEnian is finished. And as we hur- 
riedly write this final page, there arises before us the 
contrast between our book as we planned it and as it is. 

How easy it is to make great plans and how pleas- 
ant to anticipate, but how fearfully hard to carry them 
out. We must acknowledge, though most of us have 
done all that we could, that there are many defects in 
our volume and many opportunities for criticism. But 
however many the defects may be, they must be laid 
to the blame of unfortunate circumstances and the 
chief editor. 

To Mr. Fletcher Bailey, of the Art Committee, is due 
great praise for his labors to make that department 
most attractive. Also to W. G. Randall, '84, we are 
indebted for several drawings. 

To our business managers we extend our sincerest 
thanks for their untiring efforts. 

To our friends in college and alumni we are indebted 
for their suggestions and encouragement. 

Editor-in-Chief.
