LUCIUS POLK McGEHEE
HIS CAREER AS TEACHER AND
PRACTICIONER OF THE LAW
Interesting events in his student
career at the University
Meeting Wednesday in Raleigh, the
trustees of the University elected Lu
cius Polk McGehee Professor of Law
and Dean of the Law Department to
fill the place made vacant by the recent
lamentable death of Judge James C.
MacRae. Thirty-four trustees answer
ed roll-call. Of these twenty-six fav
ored Mr. McGehee, seven ballotting
for Judge A. C. Avery, one casting his
vote for Mr. C. A. Armfield. That
the newly elected dean will accept is
assured by a recent letter to a friend
stating that if his aim a mater sjiould
see tit to honor him so, he would gladly
Dean McGehee was born in Person
County, North Carolina, forty-two
years ago. He was one of the sons of
the late Hon. Monroe McGehee, some
time Commissioner of Agriculture and
distinguished citizen, and Sallie Bad
ger McGehee, daughter of the noted
Geo. E Badger, Judge, United States
Senator, and Secretary of the Navy.
Mr. McGehee is a member of the same
family of Polks which furnished the
nation a president.
Mr. McGehee received his early
training at the Raleigh. Male Acade
my under the excellent tutorship of
those competent educators Fray and
Morson. Here he prepared himself for
college, and entered the University in
1XS3 at the early age of 16.
Mr. McGehee's scholastic record
while here at the University was one
of rare attainment. Constant applica
tion to study and due appreciation of
the opportunities offered him here, soon
placed him without a peer in the realm
of scholars. During his four years of
college life, Mr. McGehee on all courses
taken averaged between '5 and 100.
Some grades taken from the magazine
records of his senior year's examina
tions show him as unsurpassed and
leading all. One startling fact was his
grade of 100 on Psychology. To pres
ent day students this may seem the
eighth wonder. Such grades as, )')
on Mechanics, 98 on German and 9') on
Physic 5, are only examples of the ex
cellent standing maintained during his
college career. The Greek prize, the
Worth prize, and the Mathematics
medal fell to his share of honors.
Special diplomas were granted him in
the subjec ts of Latin, Philosophy, and
Mathematics, and his A. B. degree
was conferred max hue aim laudc.
After graduation Mr. McGehee
taught for a short time at Bingham,
Asheville, but soon rctarned to his
nia mater and matriculated in her Jaw
school. The same steady application
to study and high success which char
acterized his college days marked his
career as a law student. In 1891 he
was admitted to the bar, and com
menced practice in the office of Fabius
IT. Busbee, the late distinguished law
yer and citizen of our capitol city.
Soon he left Raleigh for New York,
and entered the law offices of the re
nowned firm of Everts, Beamau, and
Choate, Lawyers. Later he became
a member of the legal staff of the

NO SENIOR RECEPTION I ol PATTERSON ON COMETS
IMPORTANT FEATURE OF JUNIOR
Seniors decide reception would be
a failure on first night
The Senior Class in their meeting
Wednesday night definitely decided
not to give a reception during Junior
weeu this Spring. It was the consen
sus of opinion that this function given
on Wednesday night, the first night
of the festivities" would , be a failure,
just as it has been for the past two
years. Since this was the only night
open to the Seniors they decided to cut
out this part of the program for the
Easter -Week merrymakings. Other
class business was transcated
which was the election of Mr.
Teague as captain of the class
team and Mr. S. B. Stroup was elected
Law Glass Banquet
Dr. Thomas Ruffin, Professor Win
ston, and Mr. Walter Grimes were the
guests of honor at the Law Class ban
quet held at University Inn Wednes
day night. Mr. C. J. Smith, presi
dent of the class, acted as toastmas
ter. Messrs. J. D. McLean, J. C M.
Vaun, F. E. Winslow, F. P. Graham,
and others made short speeches.
Dr. Ruffin chose Legal Ethics, or
"Equitas Sequitur Legem", as the
subject of a talk which he delivered
especially for those men who had re
cently passed the Supreme Court ex
aminations. He said that a lawver
need not .scruple to undertake a crimi
nal case in which he thinks his client
guilty; but, in a civil case, the right
of the matter should be decided upon
before the proceedings arc begun. He
thought that a large' part of civil
docket should be settled out of court.
"Be a lawyer of peace and not of
war" was his closing admonition.
Professor Patrick Henry Winston
spoke upon, "Ratio Est Radius Luini
ni". Mr. Grimes thanked the class
for its courtesy toward him during his
stay here and expressed his pleasure
at having helped in preparing them
for their careers. J. D. McLean told
of how "Lawyers are made in a day",
his talk dealing with the recent Su
preme Court examination. Messrs. J.
C. M. Vann and F. E. Winslow'. made
F. P. Graham briefly characterized
the influence that had been exerted
upon his class by each number of the
Law faculty. "Character-moulding
power" was the chief trait that he
saw in Judge MacRae's career as a
teacher. The adaptability with which
he had fitted himself in with his stu
dents in his first year here and the in
defatigability with which he had
worked among them were the most
conspicuous qualities that had appear
ed in Professor Winston's efforts. He
spoke of Dr. Ruffin as one who en
deavored to educate his students to be
gentleman lawyers. By his work here
during the past two years he bad
placed himself amo.ng the six greatest
legal instructors in the South and had
caused himself to be considered one of
the foremost authorities of the nation
on real property. Mr. Grimes was

ILLUSTRATED LECTURE BEFORE
EI.ISHA MITCHELL SOCIETY
Halley's comet will be visible on
The Elisha Mitchell Scientific So
ciety held its regular monthly meeting
in the Chemistry Hall on Tuesday
night, the chief feature being a very
interesting address on "Cornets", by
Dr. A. TL Patterson. Two addresses
were scheduled, one by Prof. Cain, and
the other by Dr. Patterson, but Prof.
Cain being sick, Dr. Patterson occupi
ed the whole time, illustrating his lec
ture with lantern slides.
Dr. Patterson introduced his talk by
tracing the history of Astronomy,
showing how the ancients stood in ab
ject fear of all celestial bodies, espec
ially of comets. He next showed how
the study of heavens has been greatly
enhanced by the use of photographs
and spectral analyses, and illustrated
that at the present time it is almost
impossible to study Astronomy with
out the aid of these agent". . The re
lation of comets in general to the sol
tr system was then discussed and often
tracing this relation, thd two impor
tant comets of today, the A19I0 and
the Halley comets, were explained.
The A1910 Comet, sometimes called
the Drake Comet, was first discovered
by miners in South Africa, and was re
ported by them to Mr. Innes of the
Transvaal Observatory. The name
"Drake" is a misuomen, as there is no
astronomer by that name. In trans
mitting the discovery over the phone,
Mr, Innes spoke of it as the "Great
Comet" and this was misunderstood as
"Drake Cornet", causing the error in
he name. Halley's Comet. will be eas
ily seen with the naked eye this spring.
On May 20 t he earth will pass through
the tail of the comet at a distance of
about-13 million miles and the comet
will then be very brilliant after sunset.
The lecture was brought to a' close
with a series , of pictures showing all
the big modern observatories and the
instruments now used in studying
The meeting was one of the largest
held this year and Dr. Patterson's ad
mirable talk proved most interesting
and instructive to all present.
