PROF. W. S; BERNARD SPEAKS
TO FORSYTH ALUMNI
, On last Friday night in Winston-Salerh
Prof; W. S. Bernard, before the members
of the Forsyth County Alumni Associa
tion, presented the cause of the proposed
Students Activities, building as a. me
morial to the name and service of the
late Dr. E. K. Graham.
Prof. Bernard in presenting the plan
tor the proposed building showed how
the University, the faculty, and the
students as a man had leaped forward
to the call of service on all occasions.
With , the county club' work, the high
schools contests, the folk players, the
students and faculty have met the call
to service. Graham put Carolina on the
map, said Prof. Bernard. All universi
ties were at a loss as to what to do
with the S. A. T. C, but ours is the
only one in the oSuth that went back to
its regular work smoothly, because, under
ms preparation,, the University was
ready. President Graham, said Prof.
Bernard, was as much a casualty of the
great struggle as the men who died in
the trenches. From his deathbed came
the , admonition, Boys, Carry On."
And these boys are carrying on their
enorts to erect tne building to his mem
ory because it is carrying on his work
and Is a memorial to his work. The
speaker told of the active part the Gra
ham spirit had played in the student ac
tivities, ' and in creating on the campus
the . spirit of a democratic citizenship
that had resulted in the Student Council,
or government by the student body.
which is the case in no other big univer
sity in the country today.
Ine plan for this building: was con
ceived by President Graham," and :s to
serve as a home for student activities.
social intercourse, and a place to enter
tain the relatives and friends visiting
the students. Prof. Bernard told of how
in twenty minutes the students at the
University now, subscride $20,000 to the
fund oil top of the heavy subscriptions
to Liberty Loans and to the war saving
funds.: , In conclusion Prof. Bernard
said that the greatest figure of the waT
Is-gone, .but ..his moral, social, and civic;
work will live down through the" annals'
of time. This memorial work should not
be confined to the alumni of th State.,
Others who have felt his influence -.vbuld
consider it a deprivation not ot be per
mitted to assist in building a moauuvmt
to our leader,, a monument that will rep
resent in every .sense the spirit and ln-j
fluences started by one Of Carolina's
most loved sons.
Mr. Theodore Bondthaler followed
Prof. Bernard and: spoke of the love of
the students for Dr. Graham becausa he
stood, for the whole man, and knew al
most every student by his given name..
The building, said Mr. Bondthaler. will
be the embodiment of the heart of Car
olina, the "E. K." spirit that permeates'
the whole campus. " . ' ;
J.ne Winston-Salem ournal savs that
the interest shown by the former Uni-i
versity men at the meeting indicates that
the local asosciation will get behind the
movement and give liberally' toward , the
erection of this memorial building which
will mean so much to the life of the
students, as well as to the visitors to the
university. ... ; v; v:
At the meeting resolutions of regret
of the death of Drs. E. K. Graham, M.'
