John Sprvnt HilL 

JOHN SPRUNT HILL was born near Faison, North Carolina, on 
March 17th, 1869. His parents, William D. Hill and Frances 
Diana Faison, were both descendants of families who moved to 
the eastern part of this State from Virginia in 1770. Here 
they acquired large property interests, and have ever been leaders in 
the community. 

Hill entered the University in September, 1885, at the age of six- 
teen. He soon was mai'ked as a man of unusual powers as a student, 
and as a man of affairs. He joined here the Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
fraternity, and was one of the founders of the Order of Gimghouls. 
He easily led his class in scholarship, graduating maxima cum laudew'iXh. 
the Class of 1889. He delivered the Philosophical Oration at Com- 
mencement, and missed being Valedictorian by a small fraction of 
a point. 

Li the fall of 1891, Mr. Hill entered the Law School of the Uni- 
versity, where he remained a year, leaving here to enter the middle 
class of law at Columbia. Soon after his entrance, he won a scholar- 
ship in law. While at Columbia, Mr. Hill joined the legal fraternity, 
Phi Delta Phi. Li May, 1894, he was admitted to the New York bar, 
and in June of that year left Columbia with the degree of Bachelor 
of Laws. 

Immediately after graduation, he became managing clerk of 
a prominent law firm in New York City. In January, 1895, he began 
the practice of law on his own account. He is now the senior member 
of the firm of Hill, Sturcke & Andrews. 

At the outbreak of the Spanish War, in the spring of 1898, 
Mr. Hill promptly volunteered for service, and was chosen as one of 
the men who composed Troop A and represented the squadron in the 
field. He did yeoman service in the Porto Rican campaign. 

In the fall of 1900, Mr. Hill was nominated as the Democratic 
candidate for Congress from the Fourteenth District of New York. In 
this campaign, he conducted a most brilliant canvass in opposition to 
the policy of the administration. He was one of the few Democratic 

candidates who boldly declared against free silver, and, though support- 
ing Mr. Brj'an, favored the gold standard. Although defeated, Mr. Hill 
ran four thousand votes ahead of the Democratic ticket in his district. 

On November 29th, 1899, Mr. Hill married Miss Annie Louise, 
daughter of Mr. George W. Watts, of Durham, North Carolina. They 
now reside at No. 264 West Seventy-second Street, New York City. 

Mr. Hill is prominent in the social life of the metropolis. He is 
a Mason, and a member of the New York Bar Association; the Reform 
Club, Squadron A, the Southern Society, the Colonial Club, the Spanish 
War Veterans' Association, and the New York Alumni Association of 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon. He is a member of the Brick Presbyterian 

Mr. Hill has always kept in touch with the University, and it was 
by his generosity that the Hill Prize in History w^as established. He 
w^as an honorary ball manager of the Commencement of 1900. 

His thirty-one years have been active ones, and the brilliant success 
he has attained in the city of his adoption in such a short space of time 
speaks much for his energy and his ability. 


WITH this issue of The Yackety Yack begins a 
new movement in the publication of a univer- 
sity annual. Hitherto, this has been done by 
the fraternities alone ; The Yackety Yack is issued by 
the literary societies and the fraternities of the University. 
The effort has been made to make it representative of 
the whole life of the University. The editors appreciate 
the support of the student body, and take tnis opportunity 
of thanking all who have aided in this work. Good or 
bad, we give it to you with the hope that it may be the 
beginning of a permanent University Annual.

Francis Preston Vcnable, Ph. D. 

rRANCIS PRESTON VENABLE, Ph. D., was born near Farra- 
ville. Prince Echvard County, Virginia, on !N"ovember 17th, 
1856. His father was the late Charles Scott Venable, a member 
of General Robert E. Lee's staff. Professor of Mathematics, 
and for a long time Chairman of the Faculty of the University of 

After finishing his preparatory education in the High School of 
Charlottesville, Virginia, Dr. Venable entered the University of Virginia, 
where he graduated with high honor in 1877. For one year he was 
assistant in the University High School at New Orleans, alter which he 
returned to the University of Virginia and completed a year's post- 
graduate work. In 1880, he went abroad and studied at the University 
of Bonn. After he had cimipleted two semesters, he was elected 
Professor of Chemistry in the University of North Carolina, which 
position he tilled, in a very al)le manner, until elected to the presidency 
of the institution on June 5tli, 1900. The spring following the year in 
which he was elected Professor, he spent at the University of Gottingen, 
where he received the degree of doctor of philosophy. 

The reputation of Dr. Venable as a chemist is well known. He 
has been regarded as the leader of Southern chemists. This fact is 
shown by his election to numerous offices in the section of chemistry of 
the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is now 
a fellow of the London and German Chemical Societies. 

Dr. Venable has published over sixty contributions to scientific 
knowledge. His most important works are, " Short History of Chem- 
istry," " The History of the Periodic Law," and " Inorganic Chemistry 
According to the Periodic Law" (the latter in conjunction with 
Prof. J. L. Howe ). 

Endowed by nature with great ability, splendid opportunities 
coupled with close application on his part, have made Dr. Venable a 
polished scholar and a cultured gentleman. To this he has added the 
character of a Christian. Of splendid executive ability, admired and 
respected by all that come in contact with him, the record of his first 
year as president a brilliant one, it is confidently expected that the 
University, under the control of Dr. Venable, Avill continue as it has in 
the past, the head of the educational interests in the State.

Senior Class History. 

THE Class of 1901 has the honor of being the first to go out from 
this University in the new century. We spent most of our 
university life in the nineteenth century; we leave, having 
passed only a few months in the twentieth. It is fitting to 
review, in part, the work done, and to say a few words of the life of 
the Class during the past four years. 

As we look tack over our four years of university life, there 
come up memories and associations which we are unable to keep back. 
We shall speak briefly of the more important events — those which have 
impressed themselves so indelibly upon us. 

The Class of 1901 entered the University four years ago, one 
hundred and fifty strong. This was one of the largest classes in the 
history of the University. In many ways, we were like other Fresh 
classes which had preceded us, and not very difierent from those which 
have followed. It did not take us very long to get acquainted with 
some who are always willing to assist new men. There was one class 
which we did not wish to know that we were here, but they, too, soon 
found out that some new men had arrived on the " Hill," so they, in 
welcoming us, made special inquiry where the Fresh were from, and, 
in an indirect way, wished to know where each new man roomed. 
The medicine usually applied to Freshmen (not internally, however,) 
did not fail to have its eftect on us. The time came for the annual 
watermelon feast, a collection was taken up, and we were especially 
invited to attend. We paid for the melons, but failed to participate in 
the feast. The remainder of the fall term was an uneventful one until 
the December examinations. When English I was reported, a new 
supply of red ink was ordered. 

Iji the spring term, as it has for the past century, Washington's 
birthday came around, and that historic holiday found us, for a part of 
the day, at least, in Memorial Hall receiving our well deserved medals. 
As time went by, the spring examinations found us in a better condi- 
tion than the fall examinations had. We were becoming accustomed to 
our surroundings and getting better acquainted with each other, and we 
breathed a little more freely, until the annual visit of the Sophomores, 
commencement week. 


During our second year, many kinds of amusement served to 
break the monotony of student life. It would be an injustice to the 
Class to leave the impression that there was anything done contrary to 
the wishes of the Faculty, although we frequently have been alluded 
to as the "Naughty-ones."' "We were Sophomores, and acted as such. 

AVhen we returned for the third year, our Class was much reduced 
in numbers. Some had entered the professional schools — others did 
not return. We had left the previous year our feelings of Sophomores, 
and were thinking of more serious things — more serious than " Conies," 
even. But there were yet some things which troubled us. One was, 
"The Study of Ourselves," catalogued as "Psychology"; another 
obstacle in our way was, " The Study of the General Properties of 
Matter," or "The Study of Energy." No new theories were advanced, 
or any original ideas heard of. But the December examinations were 
posted, and some said : 

" It is better to be born lucky than rich. " 
Others said : 

" It is better to get a five than a six." 

The spring term came and passed, and our Junior year passed into 

With fresh courage and renewed energy, we came back to the 
University last September to resume our studies. There are iifty-two 
of us. In athletics, our men have always stood well, furnishing some 
of the strongest men for the football and baseball teams. On the track 
team, our men have aided in winning honors for the Univert>ity. In 
the Inter-Society and Inter-Collegiate debates, we have been well repre- 
sented. Intellectually, the Class is very good, having furnished a good 
number of men to the Alpha Theta Phi. 

Now, fellow classmates, the time of parting is drawing near, and 
we who have spent four years at the University, standing together in 
victory and defeat, must say farewell. It has passed into a proverb 
that success is reached through failure — repeated failure has come to 
all. We have made many mistakes. Man, at best, only moves towards 
what is perfect, and the goal is reached through the lessons taught by 
repeated mistakes. We leave to take part in the larger world. We 
shall alvv^ays think of our Alma Mater as the "Mecca" for North 
Carolina. Historian.

Junior History. 

OCCASIONALLY, in these dreamy spring-days, your Historian 
gets to moralizing as he looks back over his college days. 
What a complete little life those three years are ; a life that 
had its birth and growth to higher powers ; a life, too, that 
leads to another beyond it. These golden college days; they are indeed 
an epoch, a period in the lives of us all. "VVe shall never see their like 

September, 1898, ushered us into this little world — little to those 
beyond us, but how real and whole to us. We came silently, hesitat- 
ingly, an unknown world lay before us. We were not even a class, just 
ninety-six men gathering to a common goal. Among our ranks, we 
counted men and hoys — from the smart youngsters of barely sixteen to 
the man who had already faced the problems of the world and 
found them a hard reality. Men from the east who had followed their 
team across eastern loam under a blazing summer's sun ; men from the 
west who in the depths of winter had " loaded " timber down our great 
western divide. And yet all of them were become as little children, 
the newborn, the youngest of the college world. The rude elements 
were thrown together in the crucible. Much there was of good, much 
of evil; some affinity, and much dissension. What would be the out- 
come ? Time has shown. Standing now in the third phase of college 
life, looking forward to the full manhood of Seniority, we can point 
with pride to our record and say, " All is well." 

As Freshmen, our lot was not other than that of most Fresh 
classes. We realized in a way our newness and greenness; we may 
even have been ashamed of it. The Sophs harried us, the Professors 
laughed at us, our Class team was sorely defeated — there w^ere none so 
low as to do us reverence — but yet we did not despair. The Sophs 
indeed suggested that we throve and flourished like a green gourd vine. 
The summer of 1899 passed and we came back again, but vastly 
changed — in bearing if not in mind. The humble guise of Freshman 
had dropped from us ; we were Sophomores rampant ; our voice was 


loud in the land. Our ranks had thinned, but we had blood in our 
eyes ; our day of tribulation was past. The Freshmen trembled before 
our mighty raids and the Faculty, remembering perhaps their own col- 
lege days, got off' ragged wit about " Sophomores and other fools." 
"We aspired to athletic honors and our team made an enviable record. 
In scholarship, too, though sorely tried by Conic and Chemistry, we 
stood well to the fore. 

And now, once more the wheel has swung round; we are Juniors, 
upper classmen, envied by those below us. We do not claim perfec- 
tion ; we are even disposed to be cynical, but not of our own merits. 
At last: our class " knows itself "; the spirit of hearty cooperation has 
entered. The year has not yet ended but already we can point to a fair 
record. The class team tied for championship ; on the 'Varsity we can 
count such men as Carr, Roberts, Brem, and Willcox. We have faced 
Psychology and Junior Physics without serious disaster. Ten of our 
men have made Alpha Theta Phi, the honorary society, — the largest 
number that has ever come from one class. Kluttz, who helped win 
last year's Vanderbilt debate, and Williams and Stern, our Georgia 
debaters this year, are from our ranks. And now. Senior year is close 
at hand and the gap that once seemed so far is almost bridged. The 
year has been pleasant. Perhaps, as Seniors, we may look back with 
ill-concealed amusement on our Junior year, and smile to think how 
far we are above such follies. It is strange how readily one holds the 
past as of little worth and fancies the present nearest perfection. But 
I can not trifle longer; if you are interested let me commend to you 
" Hoffding on Consciousness." And now your Historian yields the 
scene. His task has been a pleasant one ; his only regret is that he 
could not serve you better.

History of '03. 


** ^ I ^HE Class of 1903," said Dr. Alderman, "is the best prepared 
class that has, within m^' experience, entered the Univer- 
sity." Never has the efficacy of a good foundation been 
more emphatically illustrated, for the Class of '03 has, 
thus far in its career, always and in all things excelled. The Sophomore 
year of this great class has been conspicuously successful. Last fall, 
the boys of '03 returned to the University with eyes wide open to the 
hardships of the course, but with eager confidence that they both could 
and would surmount them. That they have done so, and that they 
have done so gloriously, the books of the registrar abundantly attest. 
Horace, Demosthenes, Trigonometry — all these are things of a beau- 
tiful past. But the Class of '03 has been foremost not in the general 
routine of their studies alone. The debating societies have felt the 
weight of their eloquence. The University 31agazine has profited by 
their literary talent. In short, the Class of 1903 has proved itself 
invaluable to the University in every intellectual pursuit. 

But let no one think that we are a mere set of thin-chested grinds. 
As successful as the Sophomores have been in the intellectual, they 
have proved themselves equally successful in the athletic. When, in 
the autumn, there was a call for plaj^ers on the 'Varsity football team, 
among those broad-shouldered, massive giants that went forth upon 
the field, how many did we recognize as the boys of '03! And when 
the pigskin, after a hard fought field, would finally be pushed heroically 
over the line, how often at the end of those nine enthusiastic " rahs," 
would come forth the name of a Sophomore ! But, though with the 
interest of our Alma Mater always first at heart, we lent the strongest 
of our material to the making of that 'Varsity which proved itself so 
successful, still in looking over the statistics of the class games, where 
can we find so many and grand victories as those of '03 ? 

After the exciting days of football came the slow lull of the long 
winter months, when, by the precedent of all our ancestors, it was the 


privilege of the Sophomores to salt the Freshmen. And, as in all 
other things, so in hazing, the Class of '03 showed great spirit. Yes, 
many were the home " lamb babies " that, after the departure of their 
mysterious nocturnal visitors, by reason of a sudden change of color, 
Avould not have been recognized by their own mother. But in our 
dealings with the under-classmen we have always been kind and 
pre-eminently generous. Witness as a proof of this the fact that on 
the night before George Washington's birthday, even when the benef- 
icent Faculty would have deprived them, we presented, amid great 
hilarity, to the more deserving of the Freshmen, appropriate medals. 

Now, when at last after the long winter, our beautiful campus 
rejoices once more in the fresh verdure of spring, comes the season of 
baseball and track athletics. Looking over the field, we find the Soph- 
omores again at their posts, and the conviction forces itself upon us 
that wherever is the success of our grand old University there also is 
the Class of '03. 

Did I say '03? Yes; these are numerals which throughout life we 
will wear on our hearts, and of which we are justly proud— proud 
because we feel that our Class is both an honor to the University now, 
and that in years to come, through its alumni, it will prove an honor 
to the State— prouder still because we know that, whatever happens, 
whether successful or unsuccessful, the Class of 1903 will go forth into 
the world true Southern gentlemen, every one.

History of the Foundation of the Dialectic and 
Philanthropic Societies. 

By Kemp P. Battle, '49. 

THE Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies are almost coeval with 
the University of JSTorth Carolina. Charles W. Harris, tutor of 
mathematics for the first term January to July, 1795, and then 
the first professor of that department, was an honor graduate of 
Princeton College, whose legal name was "" College of ISTew Jersey." 
There he was an active member of the Whig Society, still flourishing. 
He induced the students of this institution to organize what was called 
" The Debating Society " on the third of June, 1795. The first president 
was James Mebane, of Orange, afterwards of Caswell; the first secretary 
(then called clerk) was John. Taylor, of Orange; the first treasurer was 
Lawrence Toole, of Edgecombe, who afterwards changed his name to 
Plenry Irwin Toole; the first censor morum, was Richard Sims, of Warren. 
All were good men. Mebane became Speaker of the House of Commons. 
It is noticeable that he, together with the then president, Kemp P. Battle, 
presided over the Dialectic Society in 1848, when their new hall was 
dedicated. He died in 1857, leaving an excellent son, Giles Mebane, 
Speaker of the Senate, to perpetuate his virtues. Taylor was a merchant 
of Chapel Hill. Getting the Western fever, he exchanged his home, where 
Mr. Alexander lives, for six hundred and twenty-five acres in Tennessee 
owned by the University, and emigrated to that State. Toole was a highly 
respected planter. He was grandfather of Bishop Joseph Blount Cheshire. 
Sims was the first princijial of the Grammar School. He moved from 
Warren County and I have been unable to follow him. 

The objects of the Debating Society were expressed to be the cultivation 
of lasting friendship and the promotion of useful knowledge. The niem- 


bers pledged themselves under hands and seals to obedience to the society 

laws, and due performance of the regular exercises. The following are 

the names of the fathers of the Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies, as

There was no constitution eo nomine. In its place were " Laws and 
Regulations," some of which are worthy of mention. The officers were 
a president, censor moruni, two correctors, a clerk and treasurer. The presi- 
dent and treasurer held office for three weeks, the others for double that 

The censor morum was clothed with powers and duties which would 
not now be tolerated. He was " to inspect the conduct and morals of the 
members, and report to the Society those who persevere in inattention to the 


studies of the University, in neglect of their duties as members, or in acting 
in such a manner as to reflect disgrace on their fellow members." This 
powerful office was evidently modelled on that of the august censors of 

The Society met on Thursday evenings only, after supper. The mem- 
bers were divided into three classes. These read, spoke, and composed, 
alternately. There was a debate at each session, two opposing men, pre- 
viously appointed, being required to open. After they finished, the others 
had a right to engage in the discussion, but were not compelled to do so. 

It was the duty of each of the class, whose turn it was to " read," 
to hand in a query, then called " subject of debate." Out of these one 
was chosen by the Society. 

By " reading " was meant the reading aloud an extract from some 
book, not an original essay. Of the other members, some declaimed mem- 
orized extracts, others read aloud short essays of their own composition. 

Two votes were sufficient to negative an application for membership. 
The term, " black ball," was not used. The new members were required 
to promise " not to divulge any secrets of the Society." 

It was made dangerous to " take umbrage at being fined," and to 
" denote it by word or action." If the fine was decided to be correct the 
offender was forced to pay twenty-five cents as a penalty for squirming. 
There is no record as to how much sour looks or facial contortion was held 
to be " denoting umbrage " by " action." Laughing and talking were not 
punished unless they interrupted a speaker. The wearing of hats was 
forbidden, although usual in the English Parliament, but the president, 
at least of the Dialectic Society, was required to preside with covered 
head for many years. 

The admission fee was twenty-five cents. Three months' unexcused 
absence required new admission. A member could leave the Society with- 
out asking its consent, but could not be readmitted on any terms. Joining 
was not compulsory. 

The first motion ever made in the Society was for the purchase of 
books. It passed unanimously. 

The first speech was by James Mebane, who sustained the affirmative 
of the first query ever debated in the University of i^orth Carolina; " Is 
the study of ancient authors useful? " He was answered by Robert Smith. 
The classics won the victory by a vote of the Society. 


At the second meeting, June lltli, 1795, it was agreed to admit no 
more new members. A great moral question was then discussed; " Is the 
truth always to he adhered to? " The decision was that " breaches of faith 
are sometimes proper." It appears from a subsequent entry that the right 
to deceive an enemy in war caused tliis decision. 


On the twenty-fifth of June, 1795, Maurice ]\foore moved tliat the 
Society be divided. The motion was laid over for one week and on dul\ 
2d was taken u}) and carried. The new organization was called the Concord 
Society. No reason appears on the journal for the division. Tradition 
says, and there is probability in it, that the movement was caused by 
party feeling, which was hot throughout the land, and doubtless entered 
to some extent tliese ch>istered j)recincts. Jeffersonian democracy claimed 
to be tlie peculiar champion of " Universal Brotherhood " and popular 
freedom. The name " Concord," and its substitute " Philanthropic," and 
the addition of '" Liberty," to the motto of the other Society, Love of 
Virtue and Science, seem to support the tradition that the chief members 
of the new Society were inclined to follow Jefferson, rather than Hamilton. 

A second reason was, I think, dissatisfaction with the powers and 
duties of the censor morum. The office was omitted at first in the new 
body, and when after many months it was restored, its duties were confined 
to the behavior of the members in Society. Even this proved unsatis- 
factory and the name was changed to vice-president. 

For some weeks it was allowable to be members of both societies, 
which met in the same room on different nights. The first student, Hinton 
James, and the sons of Judge Moore, Maurice and Alfred, belonged for a 
while to both. AVhen duplicate membership was forbidden they elected 
the new. 

The journals do not give an official list of the '' fathers " of the 
Concord Society. After careful investigation, I think that the following 
can be relied on : 

Hinton James New Hanover 

Richard Eagles New Hanover 

George W. Long Halifax 

William C. Alston Halifax 


John Taylor Chapel Hill 

William McKknrie C'lauk Martin County 

David Gillespie Duplin 

Edwin Jay Osborn . . Salisbury 

Evan Jones Wilmington 

Nicholas Long Franklin County

Alexander McCulloch Halifax

The records of the Dialectic Society show that the foUowing remained 
in the Debating Society, their fnll names and residences having been 
ah'eady given: Messrs. Harris (Tutor), Houston, Toole, PI. and F. Burton, 
R. Smith, Bennehan, Kinchen, Sims, Haywood, Rufhn, James, Green, A. 
Osborn, W.Dickson, Sneed, J. and E. Pettigrew, H.Davie, Mebane, M. and 
A. Moore. Of these, James and the two Moores soon joined the CN.mcord 
Society and J. Pettigrew followed a year afterwards. 

The above statement shows that Maurice Moore may be considered 
the father of the Concord Society. He was a man of bright parts; was 
a member of the Legislature from Brunswick, and as such made an eloquent 
appeal in behalf of his Alma Mater, threatened with destruction by hostile 
legislation. He challenged to a duel. Governor Benjamin Smith, who 
had reflected on his father, Judge Alfred Moore, and shot his antagonist 
in the hip. Afterwards he removed to Louisiana and stood high as a 
citizen and as a planter. 

The first meeting of the Concord Society was on August 10th, 1795. 
David Gillespie was the first president, Evan J.ones, the first treasurer, 
Henry Kearney, the first clerk. The first debaters were George AV. Long 
and Henry Kearney on the question, '' Which is best, an Education or a 
Fortune?" Long supported the afiirmative, and it is consistent with the 
honorable career of the Society that the decision was by a vote of the 

house in his favor. 

The two bodies worked efliciently and uneventfully for about a year 
when it occurred to the members of both that their names were not of 
sufficient dignity. 


On the twentv-fifth of Aiio-iistj 1796, in pnrsiiance of a motion made 
by James AVebb, of Ilillsboro, a week previously, the name " Debating " 
was changed to " Dialectic," a word of the same meaning, derived from 
the Greek. Four days afterwards, on the twenty-ninth of Angust, 1796, 
Philanthropic, likewise of Greek origin, replaced Concord, on motion of 
David Gillespie. This Gillespie was a thonghtful and influential student. 
He was strongly recommended l\y the Faculty for the United States engi- 
neer service and did good work for our Southern harbors. James Webb was 
afterwards an eminent physician of Ilillsboro, I^. C, ancestor of numerous 
worthy citizens. 

The fundamental laws, afterwards called constitutions, of the two 
societies, were much alike. In the Concord, for a short while, members 
were admitted by a majority vote, but if the applicant was under fifteen 
years of age a two-thirds vote was required. It was not long, however, 
before the strict rule of the old Debating Society was adopted. 

A short statement of the regular work of the two societies may not 
be uninteresting. 

As to declamation, we miss Patrick Henry's " Give me Liberty or give 
me Death," because his biographer, Wirt, had not then written it. In its 
place were Cicero's invective against Varres, Demosthenes against Philip, 
Micipsa against Jugurtha, and Brutus over the body of Lucretia. ISTo extract 
from Otis, Adams, Henry, R. II. Lee, Rutledge or other Ee volution ary 
statesmen, was given, nor was any selection from the great English orators. 
The ancient classics ruled the day. 

The " Readings " were from histories, poetry, the Spectator and the 
like, generally very serious. Indeed, David Gillespie once chose for his 
exercise an extract from the preface to Murray's Grammar. Occasionally a 
comic piece was produced, for example, " The Stuttering Soldier "; " The 
Bald-headed Cove "; "Anecdote of Miss Bush." 

'Not many of the subjects of the compositions are given. I notice 
'' Oratory," " Eloquence," " Unpoliteness " (not Impoliteness), and " In- 

The subjects chosen for debates, and the decisions of them by votes of 
the members, throw greater light on the intellectual attitude of the students. 

Public education was decided to be of more value than private, and 
the schoolmaster than the preacher. Modern history was voted of more 


value than ancient; and the French language, than Greek and Latin. 
On the query, "Does travelling improve the niind^" is the following 
curious entry by the clerk. " As the question intended for debate is not 
thinkable, the opponents coincided in opinion. The debate was therefore 
not a good one, but after the regular question we debated on this question, 
' Does a man with a competency, or he who is in a very affluent station 
enjoy most happiness?' " The vote sustained Solomon that a competency 
was preferable. It sounds strange that it was seriously debated whether 
''corporal punishment should be introduced into the University?" the 
verdict being adverse. It must be remembered that there w^ere many 
small boys in the Grammar School, then a part of the University, and we 
learn from contemporary letters that they were often troublesome to their 

On questions of religion and morals the decisions were usually ortho- 
dox. The Bible was sustained as the word of God; polygamy and temporary 
marriages were pronounced evil, and suicide never right, even Lucretia 
being stigmatized as blameable. The thief was voted as worse than a liar, 
but he was allowed to be satisfied with his nine-and-thirty on the bare 
back, and to escape hanging. It was mercifully agreed that a minister of 
the Gospel might accept money for his services. Lovers of fun should be 
comforted by the vote that " Moderate fortune and good-humor are pre- 
ferable to a large estate and bad disposition." Other decisions were that 
" Health is better than riches " ; that " Love of mankind is more prevalent 
than love of money " ; that " Man is happier seeking his own approbation " ; 
that " the Immortality of the soul is not deducible from reason " ; that 
" Beasts have no souls." It is certainly notable that high-spirited Southern 
young men, in the wild days of the French Revolution, " debated with 
warmth, but could not come to a conclusion on the question, ' Is it justifiable 
to kill one who is threatening one's life? ' " 

The auspicious beginnings of the Dialectic and Philanthropic Societies 
are worthy of their distinguished careers of usefulness and honor. Thou- 
sands of men eminent in all the walks of life have had, and now have, 
grateful memories of the benefits received by participation in their exer- 
cises, and the friendships contracted among the members.

The Non-Fraternity Element. 

JSr the agreement for the publication of The Yackety Yack, it was 
expressly stated that the Non-Fraternity element of the University 
should be represented, as a class. This was but just as they make 
up a large part of the student body, and are recognized as a sep- 
arate class quite as much as the other societies. 

The intention of the editors was, at first, to give a group picture of 
them. The large number rendered this impracticable. We must be 
content with a short sketch of what they are. 

As will be seen, this part of the student body takes its name from 
the fact that the men who make it up do not belong to the Fraternities. 
It must not, however, be thought that all men who do not belong to the 
Fraternities are N"on-Frats. There are some who stand on the slippery 
middle ground. There is no regular organization ; but whenever it is 
necessary in the different classes, organization can be brought about at 

Unfortunately, University politics has become a race between Frats 
and Non-Frats. It is here that the whole University becomes most con- 
scious of the existence of a strictly Non-Fraternity party. They have 
quite their share of the Class officers. The officers of the Class of '01 
are distinctly Non-Frat; likewise, the officers of the Class of '02 are also 
Non-Fraternity. The officers of these two classes have been Non-Frat 
since their Sophomore years. 

But it is not merely in claPS elections that this weight is felt. In 
every phase of University life where men excel, Non-Fraternity men are 
found. Many of the strong men sent out of the University were Non- 
Fraternity leaders. Among others may be named J. O. Carr, of the 
State Assembly; J. E. Alexander; J. C. Eller, whose untimely death we 
mourn; Allsbrooke; the Van Nappens; Herman Harrell Home, now of 
Dartmouth College, and D. B. Smith. At the head of this list we should 
properly place C. B. Aycock. 

In oratory and debate, the Non-Fraternity men have taken the lion's 
share. On the inter-collegiate debates, of the eight men sent up against 


the Georgia boys, six have been Non-Frats; of the four men on the 
Vanderbilt debate, two have come from this side of the house. All four 
of this year's inter-collegiate debaters are Non-Fraternity men. 

They have been only a little less conspicuous in inter-society debates 
For this year, in the Soph-Junior debate, one-half of the debaters were 
Nons. In the Junior-Senior debate, three of the four men belong- to 
this side. All four of the Commencement debaters are Non-Fraternity. 
Both literary societies are largely under their control. 

Their record on the athletic field is not quite so good as on the plat- 
form. Still, on the University's Roll of Honor will be found many a 
good name that is on the ISTon-Frat list. 

In scholarship, Non-Fraternity men start handicapped by reason of 
the fact that a large majority of them have not had the advantages of 
good preparatory schools. One or two years at the University serves 
many to rise above this disadvantage. Of the ten or twelve strong men 
of the Senior Class, one-half are Non-Frats. The same is true of the 
Junior Class. In the two lower classes the showing is not so good, 
owing to this lack of preparation. 

Probably the l)est showing is made by the Non-Frats in the winning 
of medals. The Mangum Medal and the Representatives' Medal are 
considered the two highest. In the last eight yearly contests the Man- 
gum Medal has been carried ofi six times by Non-Frats. In the last 
seven yearly contests for the Representatives' Medal (it was abolished in 
1900) it was won six times by Non-Frats. 

It is not the purpose of this paper to vaunt the Nons — only to tell 
what they are doing. They are known quite as well by what they do 
not as by what they do. They do not dance, not because they would 
not like dancing, but because they do not know how. They do not 
wear dress suits, not because they would not look nice, but because they 
have none. They do not go into society largely, not because they could 
not carry themselves with grace and ease, but because society does not 
send for them. They do not sport, not because they have no sporting 
blood, but because they know by experience the worth of a dollar 
They do not root, because it is beneath the dignity of a man.

THIS Society was organized in October, 1885, by Dr. Thomas 
Hume, Professor of English, for the purpose of stimulating re- 
search into the greatest of the world's dramatists, and also of 
making comparative studies in dramatic literature. Members 
of the Senior and Junior Classes are ex officio entitled to membership 
in the Club, and other students are admitted on application to the 
executive committee. The Club has made some publications and needs 
a permanent fund to be able to make more. It has had an exceptional 
success for sixteen years, standing for honest, systematic work and 
literary culture.

Young Men's Christian Association. 

N MAY, 1860, the Christian students at Chapel Hill met and adopted 

a constitution modeled after that of the Young Men's Christian 

Association of the University of Virginia, which was written by 

an accomplished Christian student there, now one of our honored 

professors. The first president of our Association was James Kelly, '60. 

A. Hill Patterson was secretary. The aims of the order w^ere set forth 

in the preamble to the constitution : 

" We, the undersigned, desiring to promote Christian sympathy 
and brotherhood, and to advance the moral and religious welfare of the 
students of this institution and of others around us, and impressed wdth 
the importance of united effort in accomplishing this object, have 
formed an association." 

But in one short year the dark war-cloud, so long brewing, burst 
upon the quiet college town and drew the best blood of our University 
into its whirling vortex. Two-fifths of the officers and committeemen 
of the infant association sleep in soldier graves, martyrs to love of 
country. In 1876, a reorganization was effected; Arthur Arrington 
was president. Among the workers till 1886, Eugene L. Harris and 
J. H. Southgate are prominent. Mr. Harris especially w^as enthusiastic- 
and successful. After leaving here he devoted his life to the work, and 
is now a most beloved advisor of our Association and leads our personal 
workers' band. 

The above-named gentlemen, with a few others, were consecrated 
and eftective leaders in the religious movement, and raised a high 
standard of Christian character and service. Then came a decline. In 
March, 1886, the state convention met at Chapel Hill. Seven or eight 
places were represented. L. D. Wishard addressed the delegates and 
nominated the new professor of English, Dr. Hume, as chairman of the 
State executive committee. After this time mone}' and men returned 
to the Association, the University especially feeling the impulse. From 
this point started the interest in the Student Volunteer Movement, 


svhich resulted in the dedication of a large number of young men to 
the foreign tield, like W. L. Wilson, George Worth, and Lacy Little, 
preceded by K. T. Bryan, all students of ours. 

The Association has lived through many trials, and is now in 
a prosperous condition. During the present year an office and reading- 
room has been furnished and adorned with beautiful pictures, the gifts 
of our friends. About tifty men are in Bible classes, with daily study 
of the Word. Several are working in the Sabbath schools of the com- 
munit}'. A chapel on the University farm has been erected and a Sab- 
bath school organized. The Association is in the hands of God-fearing, 
earnest, Christian men. May our Young Men's Christian Association 
grow and prosper.

University Record. 

TllK University Uccord was established in 1896 by the Faculty and 
students of the University. The purpose of this publication is to 
give a coni})lete record of the more important events of University 
life. It also aims to keep the Alumni in communication with the 
University and thus bind them more closely to their Alma Mater. The 
Record is now in its fifth volume and its value to the University has been 
eminently demonstrated. It is issued quarterly under the management 
of a committee appointed by the Faculty. 

Journal of the Elisha Mitchell Scientific 


THE Journal represents the Science Department of the University of 
Xorth Carolina. It was established by the EHsha Mitchell Scien- 
tific Society in order to publish the results of scientific investi- 
gation in the laboratories of the University. It is now in its 
seventeenth volume. The first was published in 1884 imder the manage- 
ment of Professors Graves, Philips, and Harris. The University of Xorth 
Carolina is the only institution of the South that has maintained a publica- 
tion of this kind and it has done much to bring before the world that great 
Southern chemist, now President of the University — Dr. Venable. The 
Journal has now over four hundred exchanges from twenty-five different 
countries, some of which are published by the most important scientific 
societies of the world. The Journal stands as a memorial of what the Uni- 
versity has contributed to the world's stock of scientific knowledge and is 
a worthy monument of the great man whose name it bears.

A Second Voyage to the Land of Labootcr. 

Synopsis of Intervening Incidents. 

VI. My l^tollliU•h deiiiands tliat I depart from LaLootcr. 

VII. Uro't'd bv a desiro <if vicwinir the iifw thiiin's, I return. 

Chapter YIII. 

OX my avriva], I found the avIioIg^ city in a foriiiont of excitement. 
A bloody stni£»gle had jnst taken place lietween the forces 
of Labooter and those of the borderino' lands. I inqnired con- 
cerning- the matter and learned nmch of the antecedents of the 
place. It wonld seem that once Labooter had constituted a valnable portion 
of the neighboring country's soil. But certain seeds called denominational 
seeds had been sowed in the outside land, which seed would not take root 
in Labooter soil. The two lands had been involved thereupon in a brawl 
and the end of the brawl was permanent separation and endless l)order feuds 
which were continued year by year. And once each year the natives of the 
surrounding parts selected for themselves a fixed number of champions 
who were always able to break through the fortifications and reach the 
capital. But despite their vehement hostility they were always received 
and welcomed with such humility that they felt ashamed and having 
required certain of the chief inhabitants to wallow in dust and lick the same 
from their boots they then withdrew. It astounded me to learn of such 
subserviency but I could not by words overcome the power of the estab- 
lished tradition. 

I was therefore silent till one of the citizens who had known me on 
iiiy former visit addressed me with words of gratification and told me much 
news. To mv deep regret I learned of the death of Lord Alderhomme who 
had been chief of the projectors at the Labooteran Academy. 


He had been succeeded l)_v Ids iie])lie\v Venpossum, Dnke of Chendab, 
who, as my friend told me, had shown himself in all respects, both in 
splendor of dress and in attendants and in nnldness of ruling so far superior 
to all his predecessors that the Academy had been bestowed upon him as 
his own in pereonal right. 

As 1 had known the Duke's uncle, and indeed the Duke himself on 
mv former visit, I felt end)oldened to seek his presence. On being ushered 
into his othce of state 1 found there a heavv strong nuin with sloping 
shoulders. He faced about at once on my entrance and I recognized my 
acquaintance Duke Chemlab, now Lord Yenpossum. He gave me a most 
heartv welcome, and immediately accosted me with this question, which 
he averred had troTd)hMl him imicli: "Are hard students selfish; and are 
athletes unselfish^ " 

On my replying that 1 thought not; since the athlete's beneht to his 
fellows, even under the most approved modei'ii methods of avoiding fulfil- 
ment of signed agreements, could last but six years; where the students 
prepared himself for a useful life of fifty years — on my replying thus, 
he at once agreed and revei'sed a former decree issued to the contrary 
effect. I then gladly accepted his courteous oft'er to escort me round the 
various buildings. 

He led me first past an awkward, red-brick Inmse which I remembered 
to have seen before. To my surprise I learned that the spaces between 
the thick buttresses which jutted oiit at six-foot intervals all round the 
establishment were now used at will tor tenqxtrary hitchings of the many 
asses that belonged to his estate. 

AVe next ])assed the beginning of a new house which he asserted was 
being erected as aceommodatiou foi' students wIkksc arrival was fixed for 
the fourteenth of Septend)er, I'JiST. This sceuied to me a most wise 
measure of foresight and we passed on. 

After passing by another half-completed building, which I was 
informed was to be used as a bank and repository for the earnings of all 
those who had ended a course in the Academy, we sought rest within a 
certain new building of marble, white and dappered with gray. Of this 
house the Lord Yenpossum and his retinue seemed very proud. All within 
was still as death, the dwellers there being all, though it was now twelve 
of the clock, fast in sleep. I learned to my astonishment that here all spent 


the niii'lit ill labor (U- rcvcllinus and the day tlicy passed in sIuiuIkt. F also 
noted a certain Ethiopian janitor who walked slowly and licntly ahoiit upon 
shoes with rubber soles, never making- so much as a sound, save only when 
one called. He then emitted a strange guttural cry and hastened quietly 
to the call. And, too, I observe that the smooth polished walls were cracked 
from top to hottoni with a great crack. On iiKpiiring the reason for this 
crack I was told that the house had been constructed in great haste since 
it must needs be completed l^efore a certain date. 

Morever I learned that, carefully as this building was ordered, when 
on certain days of festivity the inmates roused themselves and went forth 
to view the joys, then certain vultures flocked to the upper windows of the 
house and watched from afar the process of the joys, seeking to smell the 
fragrance of the particles of meat and rich food which were devoured by 
those who paid to have their part. Occasionally, it w^as said, these vultures 
even swarmed upon the palisade which inclosed the space allotted to the 
participants in the joys. This procedure ^vas much resented; but since 
these vultures were even more low-spirited than the average, the matter 
could not be rectified. 

We then retired from the house and repaired to the Duke's office of 
state. He here told me of the achievements of a student in the Academy 
who had drawai up a code of morals accepted by the entire corps of students. 
Among the laws drafted in this code was one appertaining to the matter 
of cheating. ( 'heating was defined to be a lying method of securing good 
marks Avithout work done. " Provided said practice was carried on between 
the fourteenth day and the twenty-first day, inclusive, of May." Another 
strangely consistent law liore reference to theft. " Theft," said the law, 
is the wilful removal of another's property without his or her consent, 
whether said property be held in partial ownership by remover or not. 
Provided: that if said theft be made upon books or magazines owmed by 
the Academy the theft is not theft. Provided further: that the wilful 
removal of any lamps, apparatus or any material whatsoever, except 
material in the form of coin, be not theft." One matter more was of 
interest. " It shall be the duty of no one to enforce these laws. And so 
long as a man remains a student in this Academy he shall be exempt from 
all laws, except those contained in this code, whether said laws be moral, 
religious, mental, or physical." 

Lord Yenpossiim then inipartod to me nuieli knowledge of a general 
natnre. Tlirongli tlie window he pointed ont to me a rich, green field 
across which ran a ninddy streak of path, mining its beauty. This path 
was, he said, made hy the tramplings of a certain ass called " Junius the 
More Fresh," which trotted daily across the field and paused only at night, 
and once each week during the day, at which pause he brayed vociferously. 
A certain stenogra])her took notes upon his brayings and having interpreted 
them, published a newspaper devoted exclusively to this matter and to the 
manipulations of a club called the Tremble-arrow Club. 

He lastly told me to my astonishment of a certain lieutenant of his 
estate who all his life had struggled to create something out of nothing 
and without external agency. This was not clear to me and I hesitated to 
disturb him by many questions. These and many other matters of import- 
ance and interest ho courteously revealed to me and I retired from his 
ofiice feeling glad at heart to have made this second vovai>-e to Labooter. 


A Commencement Dilemma. 


KiCHARD Shepard A Juiiior in love with Miss Harlowe 

Ned Brewster iShepard's roommate 

Henry Stephens A friend 

Edith Harlowe A commencement belle 

Mary Perry . . A young lady from the College town 


\_BaLlroom during ihe February Gei'mnn. Between the dances Miss Perry and 
Shepard engage in co7iversation.'\ 

Shepard: " Why, ]Miss Perry, you ouglit not to tliiiik of leaving 
Chapel Hill before Commencement is over." 

Miss Perry (Coyly) : " You know the students don't want me to stay 
to Commencement for I have been here all the year. At the finals they '11 
be paying attention to their special friends and I '11 bo entirely forgotten." 

Shepard {Flatter inghj^: ''That you'll not! I'll stand by you and 
see that you have a good time; T wish you 'd stay. Why can't you? I 'd 
like to take you to the T. ]^. E. German on Thursday of Commencement 

Miss Perry: ''' Oh, Mr. Shepard! that is simply lovely in you! But 
you know — (Pausing a moment) Well, I '11 decide right now to stay, but 
you must remember your promise to see that I have a good time. I am 
sure I '11 not be left if I can count on you to — " 

Enter Brewster and Stephens. 

Brewster : '' Miss Perry I think you have promised me the jdeasure 
of this dance." 

Exeunt Miss Perry and Brewster. 

Stephens {Turning to Shepard): '" Say, Richard, have you seen anv- 
thing of my partner — oh, I see her now over yonder. (Starts off and then, 
comes had' and speals Inirriedly) By the way, I got a letter from Miss 
Boteler last week and she says that if she does not go to Kentucky in June 

2 19 

she is coming to commencement. If she comes I am going to make her 
engagements. She asks me to save the T. IvT. E. for you. It seems from 
what she writes that you made this engagement last commencement. 
Please keep it open until I hear from her again." 

Shepaki) {Confused): ''No, — I — yes — er — that is — but let me tel'. 
you some — " 

Stephens {Intevvupting): "Excuse me, my partner is calling me; 
I '11 see you again." {Hurries off.) 

Shepakd: "But, Stephens — He's gone now. {Tuining) That girl 
ought to know — (Pauses a moment, then in constefiiation) Well, I '11 be 
durned." [ Curtain. 1 

SCENE ir. 

[Shepard's 7'oom after the dance. Shepard takes off' his coat and, in deep 
meditation, seats himself on the bed-l 

Shepard: " Two engagements for T. X. E. ! I wonder if — " 

Enter Brewster. 

Brewster: " Shep, here are two letters that came for you this even- 
ing. I put them in my pocket intending to give them to yon at the dance 
but I forgot tlieni until just now." 

[Brkwster hands Shepakd two letters in blue envelopes, sits down and begins to 
undress. Shepard, still frowning, takes the letters.'\ 

Shepard: " Thank yon. [Aside, as he looks at one of the letters) 
Miss Boteler's writing. I guess she is going to remind me of that T. X. E. 
engagement I made ^\dth her about ten years ago {Tears open the letter, 
reads, smites and hols much reliered). Xed, Miss Boteler says she is going 
to visit a school friend in Kentucky and can't come to commencement." 
{Stdl smiling.) 

Brewster: " Xo doubt, that will be very pleasant for jMiss Boteler 
but why are yon so happy over it? " 

Shepard (Getting serious and preteiiding to tool- much concerned): 
'" Oh — T — I — er — I am not — I am sorry she can't be here, too. I should 
like very much to have an engagement with her." 

Brewster : " But what about your girl 'i Is she coming this year i' " 


Shkpahd: " This other letter is from her. Let me see wliat she says 
(Beads aloud) : ' Since von have assured me that it will l)e no trouble for 
jou to fill out my card for tlie finals, I shall accept your offer to do this 
and you may have for yourself the eng'ag'ement you ask for — I know I 
shall enjoy the T. X. E. german which' — um — er — that 's all. She '11 be 
here; (Smiling broadly) I'm in luck! I was afraid she was not coming, 
but as soon as I told her I 'd give hier a full card of engagements she said 
she 'd come and let me take her to the last german of the week." 

Brewster: " But don't you think this is a little late to begin making 
engagements? Most of the boys have had their engagments made for a 
month, especially for the society dances." 

Shepard: " That 's all right — I '11 get 'em made O. K. I '11 give you 
the T. X. E. with her, right now." 

Brewster: "I am sorry, Shep, I can't take it. All of my engage- 
ments are made. There are no T. X. E. engagements open, Stephens tells 
me, but I '11 help—" 

Shepard: "Oh, pshaw; Stephens doesn't know what he is talking 
about. Of course, I can get Miss Harlowe's card filled without any trouble. 
I '11 sit down at once and write her to that effect." 

Brewster: "Well, I hope you are not mistaken." (Shepard sits 
down to ivrite and Brewster continues to undress.) 


^^Commencement. Ballroom, during President's reception. Stephens and 
Brewster engaged in conversation.'] 

Brewster: ^' Have you seen Shepard lately? He is in a bad way." 

Stephens: " l\o, what 's the matter? " 

Brewster: " The poor fellow's girl is here and he can't get all her 
engagements made. When she wrote liim she was coming to commence- 
mient, he had made only one engagement, his T. N". E. Now that is the 
very one still unfUled and he has told her she is going to every dance. 

Stephens: '' But doesn't she see from her card that she has no partner 
for T. X. E. ? " 

Brewster (With a sympathetic smile): " Xo, poor soul that he is, 
when she wrote him a week ago to send her a list of her engagements he 
ran all over college trying to make the unfilled engagement. 'T was all 


in vain, and, holding to the forlorn hope that something would turn up 
eoninieneenient, he pretended to be very indignant and wrote her a letter 
saying that if she had trusted him to fill her card she ought not to question 
his ability to select her the right kind of partnei-s." 

Stephens: '^ Then he had to ' fess up ' when at last she got here? " 
Bkewstee (Laughing): " Xo, for the last day and a half he has been 
giving her the names of her partners one at a time, always pretending to 
have left the full list in his other coat. Here he comes now." 

Enter Shepard, 

Shepard: " Have either of you a T. X. E. engagement open? Xo, T 
remember now, T have asked you about this before. (Confideniially^ 
Fellows, this thing troubles me. T must make that date for my girl. I 
have seen every T. X. E. in the ])hK'e, students and visitors, and every one 
is engaged. I wish you fellows would keep your eyes open and let me 
know if you hear of anything." 

Bkewstee: " AVe '11 try to help you. But say (Wlid-hig at StrpJiens) 
have you told Miss Harlowe that I want to take her to the Pi Sigma hop 
to-morrow? " 

Shepakd (Jlcsitaluigli/): '"Yes — no — that is not yet. I'll tell her 
next time I see her — . Yonder 's AVakeley ; let me see if he has made his 
T. isT. E." (Shepard dashes off.) 

Stephens: " He is in a bad fix." 

Brewster: " Hard luck! " 


\_Senior Ball. Enter Shepard and Miss Perry.] 

Miss Perry: ''I took your advice, Mr. Shepard, and remained hero 
for the dances. (Shepard looks hored) The boys are just as lovely as 
they can be. I am having such a good time! And to-morrow I am going 
to that lovely T. IST. E. with you. Ts'ot every girl, I hear, goes to the 
T. K E." 

Shepard (Unentlnisiastir): " Yes. I shall claim the pleasure of that 
dance with you," 


J\Iiss Pekky (;S7(7/ (jushing): "Yon ought to be very happy, Mr. 
Shepard, for I sec you have a special friend here." 

SiiEi'AKD (1)'(7// a frown): " Yes, very pleasant." 

Miss Perry: " What a charming girl she is! Who is going to take 
her to the T. X. K. in the niornin"'^ " 

Shepard {}Y ith an, attempt at cheerfaJness): "Oh, don't you worry 
about her. She '11 be there, you can count on that." 

Enter Brewster aa'd Mis.s Harlowe. 

Miss Perry: "• Here she is now w^ith Mr. Brewster." 

Brewster: " Miss Perry I have your name on my card for the next 

dance, I hope that is right." 

Miss Perry: ''Yes; and you w^ere telling me, Mr. Shepard, your 

next dance is with Miss Harlowe. (Significanfty) That is very pleasant." 

(They exchange partners.) 

Exeunt Miss Perry and Brewster. 

Miss Harlowe (Hesitatingly) : " Mr. Shepard, you have not told me 
yet who is my partner for the T. ]^. E. german." 

Shepard (Turning pale ihen stammering wealdy): "1 — er — I was — 
I have — er — the fellow I made your engagement — had to — er — I mean, 
got sick at the last minute and had to go home but — I — er — I am going 
to ask you — er — if I may take his place. I know I have — er — one with 
you already Init can't you let me have this one too — 'i You know — " 
(Looks more emJjarrassed and comes to a dead stop.) 

Miss Harlowe: " Certainly, Mr. Shepard. (Innocently) " AVho was 
it you said got sick? " 

Shepard: ''Oh — er — er — Mr. — Mr. — (Stephens rushes up followed 
more slowly by Brewster.) 

Stephens: "Miss Harlowe this is my senior waltz with you. Let us 
begin ^^dth the music. 

Exeunt Stephens and Miss Harlowe. 

Brewster (To Shepard who is standing as if dazed): "I have just 
spoken to a fellow who was here about ten years ago about an engagement 


with Miss Harlowe. He is a little old for dancing-, hnt in yonr dilemma I 
thonglit you 'd not have objected to a one-legged Avar veteran, so ^liss 
Harlowe goes to the german — " 

Shki'ard {Brightening): " Good, and he said — " 

Ijkewstek: " Bnt hold on. He said he made his own engagement 
to-night {Shepard groans and begins to tool- sirl-) ]m\ his classmate, John 
Hillman, may come in to-morrow morning. The tronhle, however, is that 
the morning train is snre to be late — '' 

Shepard: " Then it 's no nse, Xed, for — 1 — I have told her I \\ take 
her myself." 

Brewster: "Man alive! I thought — What about Miss Perry?" 

Shepard (Turning green): " Old boy, I 'm feeling pretty sick (stag- 
gers). Here, give me your arm. Help me to a carriage. (They wall- 
■doirli/ to the door.) Ah, T am so sick! Ned, look after my partner. Tell 
her I had to leave very abruptly will yoti and — " (Staggers out the door.) 


ACT in — SCENE I. 

[Next mo7-ning. Shepard's 7'oom. Shepard in di-essing gown, sitting in easy 
chair with his head tied up. Enter Brewster.] 

Brewster: " Xed, are you feeling better now? " 

SiiEPARu: '' Yes, thank you, l)iit I have l)een very sick. After von 
left me last night I was very much worse. The doctor came and had to 
work on me a long time — I tell you I was sick! " 

Brewster: " SuppOvSe you stay in your room this morning and 
save — " 

Shepard (Quicli'Ii/) " I thought that would be best. Save my strength, 
for to-night. Won't you get the janitor to caiTV these two notes?" 
(Breivster holes at tJte addresses on the two notes as he mores towards the 

Brewster (Aside, with a wi)d>'): "'My dear Misses Harlowe and 
Perry, I am very sorry I am too unwell to go with you to T. K. E., this

Miss Harlowe on right conversing with Stephens. Shepard in fore-

Afit^s rj.KiJv: " Oil, Mr. Brewster, I had tlic iiidst dreadful scare this 
morniiiiil I liad an engagenieiit witli Mr. Shepard for the T. >s'. E. When 
I was ready and waitini*' fur him, at the last minnte a note came saying' that 
he was too sick to leave his room. 1 was dreadfully disappoiutcMl, for thi^ 
was the first engagement I made after I decided to stay to commencement. 
A few minntes later a note came from Mr. Wakeley saying that his part- 
ner was sick and asking me to go with him. 1 was his second choice yon

Bkewster: "You were indeed fortunate. {Aside.') If she only

Exeunt Miss Perky and Brewster. 

Shepard {Starting): "Surely Xed's not going to let the cat out of

tallviug to Steplieiis and stops.) 

Miss Harlowe: " After having one partner for T. X. E. get sick, 
then my second partner, ^Ir. Shepard, got sick. AVhen I had given up hope 
of getting there an old friend of mine, Mr. Hillman, who came in on the

Stephens: "Excitement? Whoever — {With a significant JaugJi.) 
Yes; you are right. Over-strain on your nerves, eh? " {Shepard turns and 
walks ttiouglitfully up and down tlie room.) 

Exeunt Miss ITaklowe and Stephens. 

Shepard {After a pause): " I am glad the girls didn't miss the ger-

don't believe Stephens and Xed will give me away."

Oh, the wild west wind is swinging 

Soft in the aspen tree, 
And the rapturous boughs are singing 
With the secret of love bringing 

Over the western sea. 
And the song that the w'nd is singing 

Is the song I would sing to thee. 

Oh, the lark with his song is filling 
A world for his mate in the lea, 

The air is throbbing and thrilling 

With heart-beats uttered in trilling 
Glad in the love to be. 

As the lark with his song is filling 

I would fill all the world for thee. 

Oh, the stars in their spheres are singing 

The song of eternity ; 
They utter their souls in the ringing 
Its life to the universe bringing 

God's secret of life to be. 
As the stars in their spheres are singing 

I would utter my soul to thee. 


The Annual Festival oi the Sophomores. 


1. And it came to pass that the twenty- 
second day of the second month in tlie first 
year of the reign of Gordon was approach- 
ing. Then did the men who are called 
Sophomores rise up and bethinlc them- 

2. The day of rejoicing set apart by 
our ancestors will soon be upon us. Let 
us celebrate it fittingly. 

3. Let us award medals to the men of 
the Freshmen, that this festival may be 
remembered and kept throughout every 
generation, every family, every province, 
and every city. 

4. Then spake he of the curly hair : 
" Knowest thou not, O Sophomores, that 
a certain tribe called Faculty will set upon 
us, yea, and tear us limb from limb if they 
see us celebrating this day of feasting and 
gladness ? 

5. ■' So let us spring a march on them. 
Let us hold our day of gladness on the da\- 
before. Let us capture the men of the 
Freshmen before they see fit to depart from 
the land. " And it was so decreed. 

6. So on the night of the twenty-first, 
that is the day before he who is called 
George Washington was born, did the 
Sophomores capture the men of the Fresh- 
men and drag them to the slaughter-pen 
on the third floor of the palace which was 
built by he whom men call Julian S. Carr. 

7. The first man to receive a medal was 
Bohannon. On an unsteady box did he 
climb. And great was the risk and peril 
in getting on the box for certain of the 
Sophomores did make it unsteady and 

8. And the great high muck-a-muck of 
the Sophomores said : ' ' Bohannon, I have 
the honor to award you the first degree 
big-fool medal ; guard it well." Then the 
rejoicing was great till even the walls shook 


and the skylight blew out. And Bohannon 
became baptized and rejoiced exceedingly 

9. And Hunt received the second degree 
bior-fool medal and was baptized with water 
thrown swiftly through space. 

10. And Henry Lee received the dog- 
faced man's medal and a voice cried out: 
" Bark like a doer, Fre.shman." And Henry 
said : ' ' Bow — wow — wow. ' ' 

11. Next, Sifford climbed upon the 
trembling box and received the tenth de- 
gree big- fool medal. "Raise your right 
hand and swear that you are the biggest 
fool in college," cried he with the perpetual 
smile. And Sifford did so. 

12. And Bass, the " Bull-Tamer," and 
Stewart, the " Dirty Man," received their 
medals and great was ihe rejoicing thereat, 
for the awards were appropriate. 

13. And Cox was declared the " Lord 
High Proprietor of the Campus." 

14. And Catlett, Stanes, Winston and 
Hoskins received honorable mention. 

15. Now a grand ball was the next 
thing on the programme and the Freshmen 
were told to dance. And they danced. 
But not all danced. 

16. Those who would not dance were 
baptized. Yea, they were wet, even to the 
skin. And water was poured down their 
necks. And they shivered, for the water 
was cold. 

17. Thus ended the day of feasting and 
rejoicing. And thus were the customs and 
manners of the ancestors of the Sophomores 
perpetuated and honored. 

18. And that the events of this day may 
live in the memory of all men for all time, 
this chapter has been written. And these 
things are so, for can they not be found in 
the Tar Heel ? 



Our Animals. 

MOXG other things whieli are essential to a great institution of 
k'arning, we of the University of North Carolina are very happily 
possessed of a large menagerie. AVikl beasts which have been 
partly tamed only by the most careful training, are daily seen 
traversing our wooded campus. These animals at times have tierce en- 
counters, as was the case a few days ago, l)etween a bull and a pug. It is 
needless to say who was the victor in this ferocious clash, most vivid and 

AVe will first, in descril)ing our large zoo, name the bulls in order of 
their size: " Bull of the Woods," Galloway; " Bull of the Senior Class,"' 
Stokes; " ]]ull of tlie Library," Bernard; " Bull of the West," Jones; '' Bull 
Johnson," also known as " Sword Swallower;" also a " l)aby bull " by the 
appellation of " Bully Jones." 

Young bulls, commonly known as " steers," are very rare hereabouts 
and are seen only about once in Weeks. 

Dogs are also scarce, though we have several dog-faced men. Among 
the ])ug family, " Pug " Hartley is included, and " Lee " should be enlisted. 
" Keno " (Jant is the champion dog of the Hill, and has not as yet met his 
match. The " Dog-faced Men " have elected, for their president, "Joe- 
Joe " Eamsay. 

"■ Babbit " Turrentine, " Bear " Davenport, " Moidvcy " Hoskins, 
" Pony " Stern, " ]\Iink " ( unningham, " Rooster " AVebb, " Buck " Urqu- 
hart, " (\\h " Sawyer, and " Lamb," wlio has many sheepish ways, are eacli 
in a class by themselves and need only brief mention here. 

Before closing 1 would like to mention a great no\'elty, in the person 
of a " human steam engine," known as " Too-Too " Fred Bynum. This 
machine attaches chairs to its body, in a South Building room, and flies at 
great speed, without even applying the regulation anthracite. 

The " heavenly twins," of noble pedigree, are a marvel indeed. These, 
together with the " Christmas gifts " and the squirrels, which have just 
arrived, complete the long roll of our zoo. 

Suffice it to say in conclusion, that there is great danger from these 
beasts on account of lack of cages. I suggest to the next Legislature, that 
an extra appropriation be made for purchase of said cages. It ^\dll ensure 
both the safety and M^elfare of pedestrians and zoo.

The following notice appeared on the bulletin lioard, hut the high-minded Christmas 
Gifts refused to respond : 

'• Christinas Gifts, please meet at half-past four 
On the steps in front of the Alumni door ; 
President Smathers will be there in full force, 
And Vice-President Gray on hand, of course. 
Be sure and wear your most pleasant look, 
For the purpose is to have your picture took. 
Be on hand, sure, at the stated hour — 
By order of the secretary, 

"J. Fked Brower." 


The Champion of 1901. 

The Seniors one bright afternoon, 
With grave and reverend look, 

And charming pose, and Sunday clothes. 
Had their Class picture took. 

Now, did their grave demeanor strike 
All spectators with awe ? 

Oh, not a bit — it drew their wit — 
Oh, how they worked their jaw ! 

One guy was there amid that throng 
( We will not call his name) ; 

In matchless brass and ceaseless gas 
He put them all to shame. 

But do the mighty Seniors not 

Object when he begins? 
No, not at all ; both great and small 

They 're hacked and wear dry grins. 

But, ah ! He gets too personal 
At last ! With fearful frown 

And accents hoarse and fierce, of course, 
Bro'er X doth call him down. 

Full boldly forth before the throng 
He strode, his stern ej'es flashing : 

" It 's moved," he said, ''and seconded, 
That I give that man a thrashing." 

The mighty Seniors rise as one, 
And pride shines in each eye : 

" The Champion of Nineteen-One ! 
Hurrah for him ! " they cry. 

Then Y, for so we '11 call him, did 

Not hesitate or sta3\ 
He came ahead, and boldly said : 
" Well, I '11 meet you half-way. 

They fall together, X and Y, 

Like windmills fly their arms : 

No skill or might enters this light 

(They both were raised on farms). 

Tlie picture-man was liorrilled ; 

He tried to stop the bout. 
But when his hat was crushed quite flat 

He speedily drew out. 

The scrap soon gets monotonous — 
Their skill is not admired : 

With willing heart they 're pulled apart, 
For each was getting tired. 


Each combatant was satisfied — 
Eacli one had made his blutt", 

And eacli was pleased to get released 
Before the scrap got rougli. 

But ah, alas ! what evil tongues 
Are in this world of sin ! 

The crowd doth gu}- both X and Y 
Till each one blutis again. 

Next morning at the mail they meet. 

X challenges full soon : 
" We '11 have it out,'' he says, "about 

The well this afternoon." 

That evening at the well was met 
A crowd. Such a collection 

Has not been seen thereat, I ween, 
In Bill Jones's recollection. 

Courageous Y waits on the scene 
For bold X to arrive. 

He looks like to the tierce Bosco, 
The one that eats them alive. 

" But where is X ? Why don't he come? " 

The crowd begin to cry. 
And then they cheer, for X draws near. 

But slowly draws he nigh. 

Two friends of his are hanging on. 

To keep him otf they try : 
We must admit they managed it 

Exceeding easilv- 

If only peacemakers are blessed, 
It then must be allowed, 

A small per cent, was then present 
Of blessed folks in that crowd. 

For two men strive to cool down X 
And two men work on Y. 

The crowds look on with open scorn 
And bitter taunts apply. 

But see ! The cause of peace prevails. 

Each one doth thus agree : 
" Well, I am go'n' to let him alone. 

If he don't fool with me." 

Now, to conclude, I '11 tell the truth 
To you (I trust you love it) : 

*T is to be feared that each was skeered 
And the other one glad of it. 


A Model Recitation. 


, A — , will you c'outiniu' with the lesson? Go on, we are 
waitinu on yon. Have yon a l)ook? (Mr. A — . " Xo, sir.") 
Then yon ninst either get a book or leave the class; what! 
wish to recite witliont a book? I hope people will not help 
others to be nule (»r I will have to be personal. Yo\i are strange people 
to nie. There Avere only two men who began to appland wlien that man 
came in and the rest of yon nnist follow their example; — the whole class 
is a fake. Brains in yonr feet need exercising instead of in yonr head. 
Yon men on next to the back seat yonder, chew the end of reflection. 
Before high heaven, yon all are playing fools; I am ashamed of yon — you 
are janitors to a prejudice. Mr. B — , will yon please answer that question. 
What! Didn't understand it? Why, that's funny; it was loud enough 
to be heard all over the room. Mr. (' — , were you al)le to hear that last 
question, where you are sitting over there in that corner? (Mr. C — . " Yes, 
sir.") Well, I knew it was loud enough; — the method of the teacher was 
perfect, but you won't jiay attention. Xow, just look at that man snoozing 
over there at that post ! The class disgusts me ; 1 am ashamed of you — yon 
are acting the farce. Xow, three or four over there must giggle. I 'd 
hoot the eternal powers and the eternal decencies, and stop that fool 
giggling. Can't we wake nj)? My method was perfect and you make me 
lose this valuable time — you are more amused at the teacher than at the 
lesson. AVe have a set of fools making fun at their teacher. It is an 
ignorant crowd who will allow it — yon have not the piddic spirit to put ii 
down — I don't know a man in here that I would trust to public feelings. 
Xow, let's continue wutli the lesson. What's Tennyson's method? etc., 
etc., etc. Xow there are just two men over there who are not paying atten- 
tion. T wish you would stop writing there — it l)ores me to death to see 


some one trying' to take down what I say — 1 will stop and wait tor Afr. C 
to stop writing. Now, let us continnc the lesson: ' Heroes are great men. 
etc' ^h: C — , will yon answer that ([nestion! Won't yon please go on — I 
don't hear yon — go on, please — go on! I can't get an answer, but get a 
giggle from most of yon. AVhat a farce the class is! Yes, giggle over 
there; I have yon spotted and will call yon out l»y name in a moment. Von 
ought to be slapped down — slapped down with arguments. Xow, you are 
sneaking — sneaking behind the nund)er of the class. The teacher has been 
trying to get your attention for the last fifty minutes, and you see how- 
useless it is to teach without the whole attention. Xow won't some one 
please answer^ Xow here is an allusion to the Divine Book, but this don't 
appeal to some of you — the ones that were playing baseball on last Sun- 
day — some of yon haven't a bit of religion. Oh, my God! I feel sorry 
for you that lie abed until noon on Sunday while God's divine ser^-ice 
is going on. I am ashamed of you; ' get up and get! ' I 'd rather be a 
Pagan! (Bell rings) Just one moment before I dismiss the class, I want 
to make just one statement: That if any of you have missed a recitation 
you get a five on that w-ork, and you must stand a special examination on 
the second Saturday of the month. I didn't make the rule — it was made 
by the faculty — and you are required to comply with this rule; your grade 
is five if you ignore it. Also all those who have not handed in that essav 
which was assigned to you, and all those of the second section of the con- 
ference who did not meet the teacher on the first Saturday of the month, 
will be allowed until the first of next month in which to do this work.

* To Miss M — 

Beautiful ? Of course she is. My ! My ! 
look at that curley, wavey, hair; Look 
at that laughing eye ! 

Look at those hands ! O ye gods! ! Say 
they were made of clay ? 
Are sunbeems made of yeller dust ? 
Are angels made of hay ? 

They are the gift of fairys, and of the 
gods divine, 

and they were made of jewel dust, 
Mixed with bones and sparkling wine.
