UNIVERSITY TO CONFER DEGREES ON HER SONS
WHOM THE CIVIL WAR CALLED TO THE FRONT
All Men Who Left University During Period '61
Eligible for Degree. Addresses Desired.
The Board of Trustees at the Janu-I Robert G. Russell, Durham, N. C.
ary meeting- upon the recommenda- Walter J, Smith, Godwin, N. C.
tion of the Faculty resolved to confer Fabius W. Stnrdivant, Auburn, N. C.
the degree of A. B. as of their class
upon all students of the University
who during the period from 1861 to
1865 withdrew to enter the military or
naval service in the war. A commit
tee, of the Faculty has been at work
since December obtaining the address
es of the students of that period and
corresponding with them in regard to
the matter. It is hoped that a large
number fof these former students will
be present to receive their degrees in
person. A general reunion of all the
students of that period will be held in
addition to the regular class reunions
and it seems likely that the University
will have a larger number of alumni
present than for many previous years.
It is of the most importance that the
committee shonld secure the names of
all who are eligible for the degree and
alumni are urged to co-operate in se
curing them. Every effort is being
made to avoid mistakes but, as the
records of the time . are poor, . it is
possible that some may occur.
Quite a number eligible for the de
gree have been heard from. The fol
lowing is the list of those who have
not been heard from:

At Meeting of Historical Society Dr. Hamilton Dis
cusses the Straggle.
The Historical Society held its
monthly meetingintheEconomics Room
of, the Alumni Building Monday nigh t
Dr. Hamilton read a chapter from his
book on the Reconstruction Period
in North Carolina. The subject of
the chapter was The Kirk-Holden
War. It dealt with the exciting time
just prior to the election of 1870 when
Gov. Haddeu declared the counties of
Alamance and Caswell in a state of
insurrection. Martial law was de
clared in the two counties, and Gov.
Holden through his asrent Col. Kirk
with his illegally enlisted, disorderly
bandot "state Militia," terrorized the
counties. The whole performance
was the result of a conspiracy to
carry the election engineered by U.
S. Senator Pool, and entered into by
Gov. Holden in a vain attempt to
keep the Republican party in power.
Despite all the efforts of Holden,
Pool, and chief Justice Pearson, the
scheme was an absolute failure. The
conservatives, or Democrats, captured
the General Assembly, and Holdens'
impeachment followed. The account
of these activities as read bv Dr.
Hamilton was very interesting and
was enjoyed by all present.
