one of the most prominent families in
Eastern North Carolina. His father,

The class of 1911 banqueted last
Friday night at the University Inn,
having as the guests of honor, Drs
Venable, Raper, Hamilton, and Profes
sor Cobb. "Marse" Jesse had done his
part well, and the Juniors had four
hours)f unbroken pleasure before the
man at the power plant turned off the
bantam "Ked btewart acted as
toashti aster. His introductions were
well calculated, in some cases, to draw
a smile. Dr. Venable was in his hap
piest mood. His talk fairly sparkled
with good humor. His theme was the
ideal life here at the University. He
did not wish it confined too much to
one single phase. He paid a broad
compliment to Frank Graham as the
man who most neaily realized this i
deal. A scholarly member of the sen
ior class was highly lauded for his ex
tensive knowledge of Chemistry which
was said to exceed that of the Presi
dent at the time he had graduated at
his European alma malcr. Dr. Vena
ble was followed by I. C. Moser who
chosejfor his subject, 'The Class of 19
11." l'Hl, according to his account,
has, as the largest Junior class that ev
er entered the University, furnished its
full contribution to all college activi
ties. Dr. Hamilton in his speech, "The
Relation of Democracy to Crime", made
a stroug plea for the elimination of cer
tain violations of the law that he knew
to exist among the students. He paid
particular attention to the harm that
hazing is doing the reputation of the
University. The remnant of it that
still remains has, in his opinion, caused
fifty students not to enter the Univers
ity during the present year. John Tillet
in a more or less humorous talk, advo.
cated the foundation of a lasting mon
ument for his class. Some scholarships
or other class gift should surely remain,
he thousrht, as a memorial of the class
Dr. Raper began his talk by the an
nouncement that he did not come to of
fer a collection of plain cold facts. He
gave his concept of the proper attitude
that should obtain between men in the
different departments of college life.
He expressed a desire that tolerance
should be the keynote of the relation
between scientific student and philo
sophical student, between scholar and
athlete. J. A. McKay responded to
Dr. Raper with m exposition upon
"The Value of Science in the Collegi
ate Course". He recounted an unfortu
nate experience in Chemistry 3, which
had discouraged him but had left the
smouldering fire of his admiration for
science sufficently strong for it to burst
into flame once more with his success
on Botany 1.
Professor Collier Cobb laid stress on
the importance of selection as applied
to the college course He said that in
selecting his course a student should
pay attention not only to the course it
self but also to the man who gave the
course. Professor C'bb's talk redound
