ON TO RICHMOND
Birth of the University
(Continued from first pagt) ;
about $190,000. Absolutely no money
was given by the ' State at first; In
this the State was like the editor who
offered to stake his most sacred repu
tation on a fish story but ,'not nary
On Wednesday Dr. Battle spoke as
follows: "There were sixty-four trus
tees of the University. Davie took
pains to appoint the most important
men pi, the; State.- The next thing
done was to hold a mass meeting1 of
trustees at Fayetteville, , Chas. John
ston a member of a great Scot clan and
and an important man in State affairs,
was president of this meeting. A
year later, Lenoir, hero of King's
Mountain,1 was elected permanent
president of ' the? trustees. Another
meeting, was held at Hillsboro in order
to choose a site for , the University.,
The committee appointed at this meet
ing to receive proposals for the site
finally settled upon Chapel Hill as
being best suited for the needs of the
University. Chapel Hill was selected
because of the generosity of some "of its
people who gave the land on which
the University stands. - After this, lots
were sold and the corner stone of the
Old East-laid." u.-.i.
On Thursday morning Rev. J. W.
Wildman spoke on "How; the Students
can Help the Churches of Chapel Hill.?'
The speaker first showed how Chapel
Hill got its name and then gave a
short sketch of the rise of the churches
in the town. - Mr.; Wildman said that
thc churches of Chapel Hill were weak
because no way had been found by
which, the students could help them.
But if the students would go to church,
would join the , church by . bringing
their letters of membership and
would-, give to , , the collection, the
churches would . soon grow strong.
In this way the churches and the stu
dents could work together for good.
On Friday morning the chapel ser
vices were of a nature different from
those of the preceeding days, for" in
stead of the customary talk, the hour
was spent in singing, v It was i indeed
inspiring to hear six hundred : boys
sing such old hymns as, -"Alll Hail
the Power of Jesus' Name,". "Stand Up!
Stand Up For Jesus," and "America'
The following invitations are out:
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Tillar

' ' daughter
Dr. Francis Owington Rogers
on Tuesday, October twenty-sixth
One thousand nine hundred and nine
Dr. Rogers took his A. B. at the
University in 1894 and in 1897 he fin
ished the course in. medicine. While
in college he was captain of the foot
ball team and a star player.
f Fifteen Years of Progress
i Fifteen years ago theuniversity had
an enrollment of students that totalled
up to 412 men. Today she enjoys an
enrollment of practically twice that
number. It is interesting indeed to
note the steady progress in this past
fifteen years. '. ' " " : ;" '
'Below is a table of figures that shows
the enrollment in each successive year
since 1895. . Although, in this time,
the president ' of the university has
been three times changed, still the ad
vance in enrollment has gone forward
with little faltering. The following is
a table. of statistics sho wing our prog
ress in the number of students actual
ly in attendance at the university,

Prominent Alumni to Wed
The following invitatation is but:
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Simpson Nash
invite you to be present
at the marriage of their daughter
Arabel , ;
:'. - to' --T.
Mr. Albert Lyman Cox ; I
On the evening of Wednesday, the first
at eight o'clock .'
, ; ; at Calvary Church t
Tarborough, North Carolina. :)
' Mr. Cox is a prominent alumnus of
the University. He was an All-Southern
end on our football team while
heie and he has been active in the aid
of his alma mater' since graduation.
Miss Nash is a popular young lady of
Tarboro, well known in the realm of
society in Eastern North Carolina.
Thus we see how the advance from
412 students to 804 has been made in a
decade and a half. It is also interest
ing to note that not only has the total
nearly been doubled but. the academic
enrollment has also kept ; its enroll
ment proportionate. ;i - ;
In the spring of the year 1896 the
trustees decided to establish a school
of pharmacy, of which Doctor
E. V. Howell was elected professor.
The Pharmacy department today num
bers 47 men.
In the year 1897 Dr. E. A. Alderman
became President of the University.
He came in with the enrollment of the
institution at 508. When he resigned
in 1900 the enrollment was 524 but
many new buildings had been added to
the campus and many 'other improve
ments made. . r; , . !
In the year 1901 when Dr. F. P.
Venable took up his duties as president
of the university the enrollment was
563. Today, under his able leadership
it has passed the eight hundred mark.
Besides these advances the Univer
sity has also gone forward in the mat
ter of epuipment, The Carr Building,
the Alumni Building, the Chemistry
Hall,, the Gymnasium, the Library,
Davie Hall, the Infirmary, and other
buildings have been erected in this pe
riod. Still, however the equipment of
the university js quite inadequate. 1
After all, the real test of a universi
ty's growth is the number of students
yearly instructed in the paths of truth
and manhood. We have doubled this
number in fifteen years. With this
glorious page in our history always,
reminding us of the possibilities of our
advance we still look forward to a still
greater university for North Carolina.
