TO ORGANIZE GREATER UNIVERSITY
Dr. Bernard Speaks of Plan by Which the Alumni 'Are
to'Be More Effectively Organized
Dr. W. S. Bernard in his address
in chapel Wednesday presented a sur
vey of the efforts being made, to organ
ize the alumni upon a stronger basis.
The loyalty of the Carolina man is
proverbial, and is expressed by the
phrase, "Once a University man, al
ways a University man." At this
University a plan of organization for
the alumni has worked itself out,
namely, organization by counties or by
towns. There are at present about
twenty-five or thirty of these local
associations. An effort is being made
to organize such a club every wh ere
where there are two or three alumni
together to represent Carolina.
Connected with these local associa
tions are the county clubs in the Uni
versity. Dr. Bernard characterized
th- county clubs as the most im
portant organizations in the Univer
sity life, with the possible exception
of the literarv societies or the Press
Club Dr. Bernard suggested that
the county clubs co-operate with
the local alumni associations more
closely as a means of rendering more
effective service to the University. An
organized attempt is being made to
unite the different local associations in
one general federation, to be developed
out of the present more or less in
formal annual gathering- of the alumni
at the Alumni Banquet each com
mencement'. Dr. Bernard requested,
as a special favor, that a list of the
county clubs " in the University be
compiled for the benefit of the com
mittee promoting this alumni organi

talks Interestingly of the Qualities of the "Second
' ' 1 Mile" Man. Examples of These
Last Tuesday night Sec. E. P. Hall,
at s the Y. M. C. A. auditorium, made
an , interesting talk on "The Second
Mile". He said that it was only after
going the second mile that man reach

useful and happy in , life.' Mr. Hal

compulsion of circumstances; and gave
some, qualifications a man must have
to go, the second mile. .......
I 'He.', first ., spoke of the necessity of
work. Every man is face to face .with
some kind of work, whether he will or
not. To live man must work (unless
he has been left a rich legacy), and he
must face it in one of two ways: either
as a mere duty, or as a privilege. If
a man faces his work as an opportu
nity for greater development, then he
is on the second mile, and work, in
stead) of being drudgery, becomes
The compulsion of circumstances
finds its illustrations in such lives as

those, of 'Bunyan, Helen Keller, and
Lincoln. These, pressed down by cir
cumstances, were not content with
their condition, and were not willing
to be relieved of responsibility, and so,
despite unfavorable cirenmstances,
rose to positions of power and influ
ence.! They went the second mile.
The same principle is found 111 the
invalid, who, shut in from the beauties
of " nature-'-for lifer sa id - W her friend:.
"At first I thought of how 1 could
make the best of my conditions but
now I am thinking how L can make
the most of them."
(Mr. Hall next spoke of some qualifi
cations necessary for going the second
mile. First, a man must count the
cost; must . think the thing through
for himself, and then be willing to
pay, the price. It took Paul three
years, in an Arabian desert, to think
through the wonderful experience he
met with on the road to Damascus
and become willing to announce his
new life , to the world. Had he not
been willing to pay the price he would
have never passed the first mile post
of Christian experience.
Fearlessness is a second qualifica
tion. Have the conviction that you
are right and then proceed on your
way undaunted by any fear. It's the
college student who is not afraid to
tackle hard , propositions, and deals
with, the difficult problems of his
. . . r" . 1 1
course, mat nnas an aDiaing joy in
his work and at graduation finds him
self ready, for life's battles. If he has
gone the second mile in college he will
not fall by the wayside in life.
Another qualification is grit, stick
ability or the never die spirit. It's
the man who, when defeated, beaten
down and crushed, rises to fight again,
that experiences the joys of the second
The last and crowning qualification
is love. This must be the motive
power. Without love the socond mile
loses its charm. The man whose life
is actuated by love becomes the useful,
efficient and happy man.
DISCUSS CHEMISTRY SUBJECTS
91ST MEETING OF THE CHEMICAL JOURNAL CLUB,

and Dr. Hall. A Large Number of
The 91st meeting of the Journal Club
in Chemistry met on Monday night,
Dec. 5, Dr. Robert A. Hall presiding.
The following program was given:
; The First Synthesis of Alcohol, by
Roger B. Hall. This consisted of a
report by Mr. Hall of an article in the
Journal of the Society of Chemical Industry.
; Mr. Cowles described a new form of
extraction apparatus, such as is used
in organic separations.
' Mr. R. F. Knight gave a resume of
a new method of the estimation of for
Mr. Stacey then discussed The By
products of Alcoholic Fermentation,
explaining in a clear and interesting
way the formation of aoetaldehyde as
one of these by-products.
Dr. Hall then discussed the Progress
in Systematic Qualitative Analysis, as
described by Professor Muliiken in the
Journal of the American Chemical So
ciety. In this report it was shown that
there were many difficulties encounter
ed in the attempt to develop a scheme
of qualitative analysis for organic
compounds, due in part to the great
number of carbon compounds. Dr.
Hail-also CiUled attention to the prep
aration of some' pure free sulphonic
acids that would supply a long-felt
need in acidimetry.
Despite the very inclement weather,
a large number of members of the club
were present at the meeting, which
was held in room 4 of chemistry hall.
The program was essentially organic
in the nature of its reports and discus
sions, yet was of such a nature as to
be interesting to all present.
