UNIVERSITY IN WORLD WAR.
' Of Alumni sad Meats 2,285 in
Service-Number of Dwto>
Cor. of The- Gleaner.
Chapel Hill, N. C., Nov. 16.
A total of 2,285 alumni and stu
> dents of the University of Norih
i Carolina entered the service oi
i the United States in the world
war, according to a report read On
i Armistice Day by Dean Andrew
H. Patterson. These ranged from
the Secretary of the Nayy down
through nearly all ranks lathe
army and navy and includes stqk*
dents in the army training corps
and civilian experts called into
service by such organisations aa
the War Fin&noe Hoard wad the
Amerioan University Union.
Topping the Hat is Secretary
Josephus Daniels, who studied
law at tbe University. Included,
too, are 3 brigadier generals, 12
colonels, 9 lieu tenant-colonels, 68
majors. 100 captains, 265 first
lieutenants, 341 second* lieuten
ants, 6 chaplains. In tbe navy
were 4 commanders, 2 lieutenant
commanders, 1 paymaster, 1 as
sistant paymaster, 11 lieutenants,
senior grade, 27 lieutenants, junior
grade, and 35 ensigns. In avia
tion were 43, in the training-carps
were 677, and in all other bcaifehes
Of these 21 were killed in ac
tion or died -of wounds, and 22
died of disease, and 19 were cited
for extraordinary heroism in ac
tion, receiving variouß awards
from the American or Allied gov
ernments. The highest ranking
officer who was cited for service
in the field was Col. Joseph Hyde
Pratt/ State Geologist and mem
ber of the University faculty, who
commanded the 105 th Engineers
of tbe 30th Division, and Col.
Sidney W. Minor, who was with
one of the infantry regiments of
the 30th or Old Hickory Division.
Thfe record in the World l -War
compares favorably with the
record University men made in
the Civil War, but does not equal
it. In tbe Civil War 40 percent
of the alumni of the University
were under arms, a higher pro
portion , than any institution,
North or South, could show, and
of the younger alumni 55 f>ercent
entered the service. Yale, for
instance, gave 25 percent of its
alumni in the-Civil War and Vir
ginia gave the same proportion.
Overcrowded conditions at the '
University have forced tbe stu
dents to make a curtailment in
the persons going to' the dances of
the German Club, a student or
ganization. Too many dancers
spoil a dance, tfee.students point
out, and they say that Bynum
Gymnasium is now too small lor
-the University 4ances. Conse
quently they have bean forced,
with regret, t» limit tfee dancers
to students, alumni, aadwnanbere
of the faculty, and their pa*« era,
the overcrowded conditions at re
cent daacee have detracted faoin
the enjoyment of aUpreße»tf > «eys

handled than Is lfl7, operating ex
penses ware $4,420,000,0«0, an lncreas*
of U,M0,000,000 over 1817.
But during 1019, wages and material
oosts were on a rising scale, so that
by the termination of Federal control
last spring the annual basis of oper
atlng oosts had some |200,00000
more, making the total Increase In aa
nnal operating expenses upwards oi
$1,700,040,000. To this how must' bf
added $>5,000,000 of additional
wages, which makes the new basil
of operating expenses more than $2,

Against this Increase in operating ss
