Gregory is a good successor to
Guion and Mr. Trenchard's reputa

The Second Session of the Uni
versity " Summer School began on
Tuesday 5 morning-, June 25, and
closed on Friday, July 26. All the
advantages of the University, save
dormitories, ' were offered to those
There were two departments,
Academic and Pedagogic, offering
twenty-two courses of instruction.
The Academic courses were intend
ed for those desiring riper scholar
ship and broader base of knowledge.
It 'brought 'University education
within the' power of all. Classes in
Latin, Mathematics, and Modern
Languages hid the same instruction
as is offered in the Fall Term of the
University. Applicants for en
trance into the University as well
as regular students after examina
tion, and approval of the professors
in ' charge, were allowed ' to count
their work towards graduation.
The department of Pedagogy
taught many for "the first time that
there was a scientific method in
presenting knowledge to a' learning
There Were 140 registered stu
dents, besides 19 instructors. There
were about twice as many ladies
present as men. A model primary
class in spelling and reading by the
phonic method was conducted
throughout. The children in the
class are not counted in registra
As is known, both men and wom
en were here. The fact that the
women showed such zeal and inter
est in higher learning, coupled with
the ability of those present, led the
faculty of the Summer School to en
quire towards the close whether the
doors of the University should not
be opened to women.
Fifty-six members of the school
came from ' the city public schools.
Thirty-five from private schools.
Fourteen from the University.
Twelve from colleges and high
schools, Ten from public schools.
Five states were represented, S.
C, Va., Tenn., Penn. and N. C.
The profit was none the less be
cause of the pleasure attending such
a company. In fact, the serious
ness, the earnestness, the spirit of
work which prevailed was marked
by the visitors. Yet such diver
sions were afforded as made the
work healthful. No cases of sick
ness were reported.
Considering the second term of
the school and the number almost
three times that of last year, we
may well predict for it a future of
usefulness and helpfulness to the
cause of higher education in our
The Centennial Commencement,
Ball and Germans.
The fact that such a large propor
tion of those licensed topractie law in
this state are prepared for their pro
fession at the University is indeed
gratifying to the many friends of the
Law Department The rapid increase
in e attendance ' also goes to attest
to its superior worth and merit.
.'Managed so effeciently as it is.its
permanent success is assured.
Since last June nothing but praises
have been for the grandest and most
complete success of the University, her
centennial commencement, Chief
among1 the elements of its success and
pre-eminent among- its pleasant feat
ures, stand its Ball and German. For
weeks the Chief Ball Manager and his
assistants had been attentively and
busily engaged in preparing- for the
Centennial dances, the greatest social
event of U. N. C. The magnificent
gymnasium lioor, . famous throughout
our State, and indeed the entire South,
was never in a better condition. ;
Long before the Glee Club Concert
on the evening1 of June seventh
was over, many were the impatient a'nd
radient faces turned with expectancy
toward the dancing hall, where at 10:
30 sharp the First Regiment Band
pealed forth the Grand March which
ushered in the lovely and long-expected
Senior Ball of the '95. Centennial.
It was a beautiful sight to look' in
upon tha't dazzling, palpitaing throng
of Southern Beauty and manliness.
The. unequalled beauty of Southern
women is a universally admitted fact:
and amid this throng were to be seen
the lovliest of the lovely, the pick of
that Southern Beauty. ' ; .
"There was a sound of revelry by night,
And Carolina's 'Varsity had gathered
Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright
. The ' lamps shone o'er fair women and
Three hundred hearts beat happily; and
Music arose with its voluptuous swell,
Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spoke
And all went merry as a mariage bell."
The white .and blue costumes of the
young ladies betokened their sincerest
interest and most intense loyalty' for
our beloved 'Varsity. The large white
and blue sleeves were thoroughly typ
ical of the patriotism and magnitude of
the occasion. In short, fans, slippers,
gloves, dresses and all bore our adopt
ed colors white vnd blue.
The Germans of the afternoon and
the evening of June, seventh, were a
repetition of the Ball,' only on a much
grander scale. The figures led
by the Chief Ball Manager, Mr. E. C.
Gregory, were especially beautiful and
intricate, showing supreme skill and
easy mastery of the leader's art.
At three o'clock on the morning of
the last German, the Ball Managers
presented their rosettes as follows:
Chief, E. C. Gregory, to Miss Sallie
Kenan; Sub. J. C. Eller, to Miss Sadie
Bitting; Sub. J? II. Andrews, to Miss
Lillie Hoke; Sub. J. II. Dangerfield,
to Miss Mary Conrad; Sub. V. G.
Clark, to Miss Mary Calder; Sub. S.
H, Hill, to Miss Luc' Young; and
Sub. W. H. Woodson, to Miss Eliza
Just as the first rays of the morning
sun appeared the last strains of the
last encore of "Home Sweet Home,"
faded away, and to the sorrow of all
the delightful German was over. One
and all of the participants declared
this to be the most successful and en
joyed occasion ever attended; and,
with congratulations to themselves on
being able to be present and to the
Ball Manager, and the regrets that
the dances were over, they vowed to
one another their intention of return
ing again next commencement. May
the Centennial Commencement dances
of 1995 be as pleasant and scccessf ul as
were those of 1895!

This being our first issue for this
year, our exchange list is rather small
The following, however, have been
The Raleigh Press-Visitor, The
Vanderbilt Hustler, The F. & M.
Weekly, and The Sewanee Purple.
The Hustler says that foot ball
prospects are better than ever before;
seven of last year's team are in train
ing with an abundance of material
from last year's scrub team and the
freshman class. Upton of U. Pa. has
been secured as coach. The Hustler
says: "Our first game will be with
North Carolina if the plans now made
can be carried out.
The Purple says that: Foot-ball
at Sewanee is in a paecarious condi
tion." They have not yet secured a coach
and fcot-ball aflairs seem to be in a
very unsettled and unsatisfactory state
