GRINDS AND BUTTERFLIES
During this wonderful premature
spring weather that Jupiter is be
stowing upon the creatures on the
earth now it is indeed a treat to stroll
over to the Library and there inter
estingly while away the evening hours
yes, any way you choose. Only the
real grinds are attracted by the lights
of the Library these evenings.
Don't be mistaken! Others go,
, others besides the real grinds, but
they tarry not long among the learn
ed volumes that the noble ancestors
of the University have bestowed up
on this generation to cultivate the
young Carolina minds. They go, yes.
They sit, to be sure, but they have
not the attitude of those that in
tend to stay long. Every time the
outside door opens and a young gal
lant appears, the butterflies flutter
simultaneous. The books which they
are supposedly reading, sometimes
upside down, hold no more interest
for them. They all watch enviously
to see who the lucky co-ed is going
to be. As the couple walk happily
out of the educated atmosphere, they
all sigh, and watch expectantly for
their admirer to appear. He will get
there sooner or later.
By 8:30 or 9 o'clock the last of the
left with their dates to find more live
ly scenes. Soft drinks even at high
prices are very refreshing to those
who have waited long and expectant
ly; two hours of hard studying? in
deed, a weariness of the flesh! Soft
drinks, dopes and shakes, an evening
stroll, her speech ever ready, facile,
quick, picturesque, never-failing, and
unending feuch a change from the
monotony of the reading room They
relate at length the subtlest details
of their latest love affairs. Just
what Bill meant by the second folder
of the letter written the day before
yesterday is a matter of conjecture
which may be extended to last hours.
(The woman with things on her mind
can always find a listener in fact,
several of them.)
But back to the Library. After the
interrupting element has dispersed,
the grinds give a sigh of relief. Gen
erally all that can be heard is the
busy scratching pens, gliding swiftly
over page after page of note' paper
or the rapid turning of leaves.
The lights blink, the bell rings, and
all the grinds the real Beekers after
learning close their books and 'go to
their rooms to continue. Early morn
ing will find them in the Library
again, buried in their books, and off
and on during the day, but the but
terflies ah, the butterflies wait for
the appearance of the lights at
night before they doll-up and come
to the reading room to begin their
"study." .; ?..:..,.
THE COLLEGE SPORT
A stranger on any college campus
will behold a certain species roaming
at large, which, at first glance, is
often taken for a picture, but if more
closely examined will reveal life.
This particular individual may be
described as follows: latest style hat,
form fitting suit and overcoat, cigar
ette in one corner of .the mouth, and
usually conspicuous horn rimmed
glasses on his nose. He is found in
every college and University, and he
is as liable to be a senior as a
freshman, the only difference between
the more advanced college sport and
the new one being that the former
is beyond any last hope' of redemp
tion. -Viy-. ';:." .-v';1
He is entirely devoid of any col
lege spirit or any desire to mingle
with the "common herd" of students
who are doing things in college ath
letics, politics, or any other college
activities, not to speak of studies.
This noble man of leisure is the
college sport, and his bearing and
attitude often inspire the casual ob
server to seize a piece of plank and
pat him on the head.
KNOW YE ONE ANOTHER
How many people on the campus
do you know well? With how many
others do you enjoy a passing ac
quaintance ? Do you walk to and
from the classes without once saying,
"Hello" to a fellow-student? Or
are you kept busy greeting passers
by as you hurry along from one
building to another ? Are the faces
familiar to you those of a strictly
limited group, or do you know men
of every class and of the various or
ganizations in the University ? Are
there no professors you feel that you
know well enough to do more than
distantly nod to outside the class
And why the fusillade of ques
tions ? you may ask. They are
prompted by recollection of the views
of a friend, a former student, who
used method in cultivating friends and
practicing cordiality. The student
had attended college elsewhere for
two years before coming here. Af
ter a few months he began checking
off names in the student directory. A
few months later, he repeated the
process. Questioning revealed the
information that here was a person
who measured the success of his life
in the University by the readiness
with which he made friends.
In the air castles of our pre-college
days, the new friendships we are to
form always hold a prominent place.
Nothing seems quite so important to
us when we look forward to the col
lege life, and at the close of this
life nothing holds so sacred a place"
in our memory as those friends of
ours. Ambition is 6f course impor
tant in the pursuit of a college career.
It perhaps is the guiding star which
induces us to come here, and which
keeps us here after we arrive. But
friendships hold the dearest corners
of our hearts and smooth over the
rough places. Stern resolve is not
powerful enough always to make
things bearable when they appear
dark and gloomy indeed. But a
friend can banish the gloom by a
few kind words and a little sympathy.
We were struck by the novelty of
our friend's idea. Many a time have
we heard speakers whose experiences
and wisdom we respected, nominate
the University -campus as the place
where a student forms the associa
tions which are his alliances for life.
We forget a large per cent, of the
acquaintances we had in high school
and earlier days, but the friends of
our University period are forever
Man comes into this world without
his consent and leaves without his
. During his stay on earth his time
is spent in one continuous round of
misunderstandings. In his infancy
he is an angel; in his boyhood he is a
devil; in his manhood he is everything
from a lizard up; in his duties he is
a damn fool; if he raises a family he
is a chump; if he raises a check he is
a thief and the law raises h with
him; if he is a poor man he is a poor
manager and has no sense; if he is
rich he is dishonest but is considered
smart; if he is in politics he is a graf
ter and a crook; if he is out of poli
tics you can't please him, as he is an
"undesirable citizen"; if he goes to
church he is a hypocrite; if he stays
away he is a sinner; if he donates to
foreign missions he does it for show;
if he does not he fs stingy and a
When he first comes into this world
everybody wants to kiss him before
he goes out they all want to kick him;
when he is a little fellow the big girls
all kiss him; when he is a big fellow
the little girls all kiss him.
If he dies young there was a great
future before him; if he lives to a ripe
old age he is in the way, only living
to save funeral expenses.
Life's a funny proposition after all.
THE NOTE BOOK HABIT
tDo you have the note boot habit?
Hurrah for you! Then you have
formed the habit of making notes on
the things you hear and see, of in
structions received or to be given, of
things to do and to write, or places
to go and things to say when you get
there.. : .-,' ' . .
You have the habit, then in plan
ning your work, of routing it in the
order in which it ought to be made,
for the sake of time and economy or
to be sure they will come in proper
sequence when one is related to an
other. You free your mind from the neces
sity of becoming a storage house, and
allow it to serve as a factory for
ideas.. , - y :
. You do not lose the hundred and
one by-products of your day's work
which would escape your mind and be
relegated to that, enormous scrap heap
of good ideas never acted upon.
Your note book habit has prompted
you to be more thorough, and it has
made thoroughness easier. It has
fostered the power to analyze.:,
'It has become so much a part of
your life that you could not get along
THE Y. M. C. A.
The average fellow too soon com
mences to regard the elements that
make up his environment as com
monplace. And so the student goes
about the campus with slight thought
of the conveniences and pleasures
about him. During the ' past six
months the Y. M. C. A. has adapted
itself to student life in a most effec
tive way. During the painful regime
of the S. A. T. C. it served tse fellows
in every possible way, even to the ex
tent of installing a commissary de
partment when it was forbidden to go
to town. Now with the campus re
stored to normal, it has again taken
into account the objects of student in
terest. The dance hall in the associa
tion building, the universally appreci
ated movies, and the series of lectures
on choosing a profession, are ex
amples of its service. In the midst of
this activity we catch sight of Sec
retary Wunsch, to whom we must
ascribe most of the credit. We owe
it to the Association and its secretary
to express the dormant but neverthe
less real sentiment of the student
body that the great services rendered
are keenly appreciated.
EDWARD KIDDER GRAHAM
The following which is self explan
atory, recently appeared in The Na
tion: To the Editor of the Nation:
Sir: OLess than five years ago, in
a brief survey of the history of the
University of North Carolina in con
nection with the inauguration of Ed
ward Kidder Graham as president, I
spoke of the occasion as heralding
the beginning of an educational era
in North Carolina. The first brief,
brilliant chapter in this new era, with
reference to North Carolina, may be
said to have come to a close with
the sudden, untimely death, from in
fluenza followed by pneumonia, - of
President Graham at Chapel Hill on
October 26 last. The ideal of uni
versity extension, which animated
him throughout his incumbency as
president, found fortunate expression
in the initially successful ' attempt to
realize, in the light of modern edu
cational theories and social ideas, the
larger mission of the University in a
democratic State. The exceptionally
warm and widely-expressed approval,
by the people of North Carolina, of
the policies which he inaugurated and
put into effect, as well as the extra
ordinary demonstration of regret over
his loss, constitutes the best evidence
of their soundness and success.
As a student of the University of
North Carolina (class of '98), Edward
Graham made an extraordinary im
pression upon the life of the institu
tion 'by his radiant democracy, his
mature judgment, his instinctive
grasp of college problems, and his
exceptional ability on the platform,
as orator and debater, even more
than by his high scholarship, genius
for friendship, and rich sense of hu
mor. His public addresses, even in
his under-graduate days, were marked
by beauty of phrasing and depth of
content; and more than one of his
mblic utterances in later years be
onged in the category of true oratory
emotionally moving in delivery and
elevating in appeal. As a teacher of
English at his alma mater for a pe
riod of thirteen years (1900-1913), as
instructor, associate professor, and
professor, in turn, he transfused his
work with the quality of beauty. He
rightly regarded his teaching, not as
a task, but as . a work of art. His
rare success as a teacher was chiefly
due to hi3 great gifts of human sym
pathy and artistic sensitiveness to
delicate shades of aesthetic value.
From the national standpoint, Gra
ham gave to the country an inspiring
object lesson. It is no less than jus
tice to affirm that in the brief period
of his incumbency as president he was
rapidly winning national recognition
for North Carolina as the Wisconsin
of the South. Through ever-widening
spheres of influence, he was car
rying out a liberal and democratic
policy of extension, not as thinly
stretching out its resources to the
State boundaries for the purpose of
protective expansion, nor as carrying
down to those without the castle walls
broken bits of learning, but as the ra
diating power of a new passion, car
rying in natural circulation the uni
fied culture of the race.
