Dr. Bo; iter Goes to Athletic Sleeting
in New York, "Where the Most
Prominent Athletic Men Were
During- the holidays numerous
members of- the Faculty attended
associations, conventions, and
meeting's at various points in the
North and West. The promi
nence of the University is no
where more clearly shown than
in the estimation in which mem
bers of the Faculty are held by
their Northern associates, and in
the enthusiasm with which they
gather together for the discus
sion of mutual problems.
The Modern Language Asso
ciation, held at the University of
Pennsylvania, at Philadelphia,
December 27-29, was attended by
Professors Toy, Royster, Dey,
Booker, Cross, Towles, K. J.
Brown, and Parker. Professor
Cross read a paper before the
association on "King Arthur in
Ireland." It is an extremely sig
nificant fact that the University
oi isorth Carolina was repre
sented by eight men and all the
rest of the South by four men.
Professor Bain and T. J. Wil
son, Jr., attended the meetings
of the Philological Association of
America, at Washington, D. C.?
December 28-31. At the Ameri

ARE WORKING HARD
Strenuous Practices Being
Held Nightly for the Heavy
FIVE N. C. MEN ARE AMONG CANDIDATES
Several Men of Promise Are Trying,
put Many More Are Badly
With the return from the holi
days, basketball practice was
again taken up in earnest an
every night at 8 o'clock work
starts at the Gym. During the
temporary absence of Coach Cart
mell. Captain Chambers has been
in charge. Scrimmages are held
nightly7 and the Varsity is grad
ually rounding into sliape. There
is urgent need for more material,
par icularly tall men. At pivsent
not more than fifteen men are on
hand regularly and it is often
difficult to keep up scrimmaging.
During the Examinations prac
tice will continue as regularly
as possible, at least every other
night. The first game comes im
mediately after Exams.
vive N. C. men are on the
squad, four of them from last
year's team., Harrington, -Smith,
Tillett, and Chambers, and one
from the 1911 team, Long. With
these men as a nucleus, prospects
are encouraging for the develop
ment of a much stronger team than
that of last year. Among the most
promising new men are Redman,
Mebane Long, Strong, Wright,
and Homewood, while Ranson
from last year's squad is scrap
pier than ever. In most of the
scrimmages the temporary Var
sity has been lining up with Car
rington as center, Smith and Til
lett forwards, Chambers and Red
man guards. Redman fits well
the place left vacant by Erwin,
and this team has shown much
smoothness and teamwork, par
ticularly in passing.

SECOND ALUMNI REVIEW
Improves on the High Stan
dard of first Number
The December number of the
Alumni Review is out from the
press. This issue in general
excellence measures well up to
the standard set by the initial
number of the Review in Octo
ber. It is filled with matter
concerning the University and
her sons that is in every sense
interesting, not only to alumni
but to students as well.
Under the head, "Opinion
And Comment" , various mat
ters are discussed editorially: the
Secretaries of classes and local
alumni associations and their
duties in regard to keeping their
organizations united and in
touch with the University; the
Summer School and its' accom
plishments and needs; apprecia
tions of the services of Charles B.
Aycock and Richard II. Battle.
"Aycock As An Education
Leader" is the title of an article
by R. D. W. Connor, '99, that
pictures accurately the work of
the State's Educational Govern
or. The writer states that Av-
cock's conlributiun to education
lay not in that lie initiated
the movement, but in that he
brought to the cause of education
the prestige and influence of his
high office, and gave to it with
out stint, the benefit of his own
An appreciation of the services
of Richard II. Battle, '59, who
died May 19, 1912, is given by
J. B. Cheshire, Jr., '02. Mr. Bat
tle was from 1877 until his death
a trustee of the University and
for thirty-three years he attended
every University Commencement.

Graham to the Wake alumni is
