GRAHAM MEMORIAL AS IT WILL LOOK WH3N COMPLETED
The campus is now definitely as
sured of the proposed Graham Me
morial building. This bulding is to
be located at the site of the old Uni
versity Inn and the building committ
tee plans to begin work on the build
ing in the fall. It will be remem
bered by the older residents of the
campus that, soon alter the death of
Pres'dent Edward Kidder Graham in
the fall of 1918, a movement was
started by the alumni of the Univer
sity to erect on the campus a fitting
memorial in reeognit'on , of Dr.
Graham's splendid services to tihe
University and the State at large.
Durtig 1919, $123,000 was sub
scribed toward a f ind foe the eiw-4 propria -nttuw- Wr-.rd Fra.iklm
i o.i of a student activity "building.
However the campaign was suspend
ed :'n 1920 on account of the finan
cial depression of that year. About
the first of last spring the joint com
mittee selected from the faculty, the
-trustees and the alumni .wived the
old plans, increased the original goal
of $123,000 to "$400,000, and em
ployed a secretary to take charge of
the drive for funds. This man, Mr.
W. Jay Ward, acting for the commit
tee, secured a number of students
and young alumni to canvass the
state this past summer in the inter
:it of the memoral bu'lding. All the
the results were very encouraging.
To date there has been about $184,
O00 raised on the building o which
,ver $125,000 was ra sed during the
summer campaign. -
The remainder of the set goaI will
be raised as quickly as possible. Mr.
Ward has Issued the following state
ment in regard to the campaign:
"A campaign on the Hill among
the faculty, students and citizens will
yield a substant al part of this bal
ance. The out-of-State alumni will
make a large contribution, and an
other combing of the State and work
ing of the communities that have not
been reached will easily bring the
campaign to a successful close. There
is no doubt now that the work will
begin on the central unit ofthe build
ing sometime this fall."
The Graham Memorial building is
to be the student activities building
and social center of the campus. Lo
cated on the site of the old Inn, it
will " face west toward the Battle-Vance-Pett
grew dormitories, with ap-
street and the Alumni building, which
will be of the late Georgian style of
architecture, brick w.th limestone
trimmings, have been drawn by
Me.ws. Kendall, of McK m, Meade
and White, and Nash, of the T. C.
Aside from the fact that it is to
be the general get-together place for
the students, as well as a place to en
tertain vsitng alumni and friends
and relatives of the students, the
building is also to provide a home
for the various clubs, the college pub
1 cations, offices for the Student
Council, Athletic Manager, Campus
Cabinet and other such organizations.
In the central unit; of the building
thera is planned aj large reception
room which will be used as a sort of
lobby for.the campus.. Iu the base
ment there will be a cafeteria con
nected tvt rooms on the first floor by
a system of dumb waiters. Thlj
feature will be of especial use on such
occasions as banquets and smokers.
In general the bu Id ng is to be oper
ated along the same lines as the fa
mous Harvard Union, Houston Hall
and other such activity build.ngs at
Several of the men now on the
Hill who canvassed the alumni dur
ing the summer report that on the
whole the alumni responded very
well. There are several rather strik
ing exceptions to this statement, how
ever, for some sect'ons of the -State
proved to be more liberal than others
in subscribing to the fund. The
alumnii of this institution have not
been what one might call edu
cated to the idea of making such gifts
to the r alma mater. The present
arirc-'s the first- that has been con
ducted among the alumni for build
ing funds since the Alumn: bu lding
was started way back in 1898, wh le
State institut ons in other states have
of necessity gone to their alumni on
account of the smallness of the ap
propriations from their legislatures.
However the drive here has pro
gressed very well and will be pushed
to an early completion.
The student and alumni canvass
ers dur ng the summer were:
A. L. Purrington, Jr., H. C. Star
ling, William M. York, B. C. Brown,
V C. Swift, B. E. Humphrey, A". J.

Griffin, Z. B. Newton, John M. Brown,
O. M. Abernethy, E. C. Jernig-an, G.
C. Hampton, Jr., Tyre C. Taylor, W.
R. Berryhill, W. E. Matthews.'
The Manning Law building prom
ises to be one oT the most beautiful
on the campus. Its white columns
and the smiling dome fit nicely be
tween the austere plainness of
Murphy and Saunders.
Frederick ;H. Rock1, professor - of
the PlaymakeVs has moved his office

The Carolina football squad has
completed two weeks of . intensive
training prior to the .opening of
school with over 80 trying out for
It is a bit early to get a line on
who will get a regular place, and
since Coach Bill is not over-talkative
writing as to who is who Is
premature and purely speculative!
Still it is safe to talk about some
phases of the situation.
It has been generally conceded
that the great work cut out for
Coaches Fetzer is the development
of a strong reserve power in the
oackfield. He has Monk McDtfnald
at quarter with Sparrow and others
to call signals in case he is out of
the game. There is no grounds to
feel that McDonald will not be the
general of the 1923 squad. Sparrow
is backan3 in good" condition, and
his work will no doubt be of the
same high calibre as it was last year.
Ho has a mania for kicking field
goals, a mania that won several
games last year and bids fair to
win several this year.
Randolph and! Merritt from last
year's squad, both letter . men and
both powerful in going through a
line, will furnish the strength of the
first string according to all the
prognosticators. Both men tear up
a line and both are fair defensive
The real weakness of .the back
field then is one of reserve poer.
When the four men mentioned above
are pufon the field tne Varsity ias
shot its heaviest load, and among'Ii.
four theftTis not a man who has Al
lan McGee's defensive ability. Kc
Gee will he sadly missed, since he
d:u mi?3i, .f he defensive wrf.k in'
the backfield last year.
Filling McGee's place is botae- ing
both the coaches. Charlie Gold
looks like the best bet from the last
year freshman class. He 15 ia'
good defensive man and can btfck a
line in his turn, although he has a
habit of falling down if he ever gets
through. Without a doubt he is the
likeliest looking man for the place
That leaves the coach with a big
bunch of men, some good, some fair,
and others otherwise to build a sec
ond string backfield to take the place
of the one last year. Griffin, Devin,
from the freshman team last year,
Whedbee and Bonner from last year's
scrubs, and others are all showing
class. All four are fast and aggres
sive, Whedbee is a good defensive
man and Devin has a good head and
an educated toe.
The line "Is causing less worry,
although it will be a long time be
fore the places of Pritchard and of
Blount and Cochran are filled. Far-
rell, FordhamJ Robinson, from last
year's freshman, and others are all,
working' for the vacant places in the
center 'of the line. Poindexter is
certain of h'is place, Mctver is prac
tiealfy so, although he may be shift
ed to center. Robinson looks good
for Blount's position, while Mat

Some form of athlet es for every
student on the campus is part of the
huge athletic program organized by
Dean Bradshaw and Coach Bob Fet
zer. Recent statist cs show that a
very small percentage of the fresh
man class took active part in organ
ized athletics last year, and these men
approximately 260 out of 600, are
the ones that need the physical exer
cise the least. Ow'mg to inadequate
fac lities and! equipment, inter-dormir
tory contests could not be conducted
on a large scale last year, but sum
cient interest was shown to warrant
its introduction into the University
on a permanent bass. Heretofore
the students w th slight frames and
frail physiques have beea unable to
compete with their more sturdy class
mates and consequently, could not
benefit from the wholesome exercise.
A complete schedule of Liter-class
an.1 inter-dormitory contests will
soon be announced by Dean Brad
shaw and Coach Bob Fetzer, now
that the proper material is aya lable.
The new steel build. ng for indoor
athletics will be ready for use in the
course of a few weeks, it is situated
in back of Emerson field on the other
side of the new Pittsboro road, and
will seat 4,000 easily within its gen
erous 300 by 100 feet dimensons.
The bu loing will provide for eigat
03f.ket.biU ourt, a syxlh. if a mil
track, ami several indoor tennis
courts. The addition of this struc
ture relieves the Bynum Gymnas'um
r3r.i the crowded conditions that
preva led there last year, wh';h was
totally inadequate for a college of
2,000 students,. The Carinas urn,
however, will be used for the usual
classes in culesthenics under the d -rection
of Dr. R. B. Lawson,
Further fac lit es are the extension
of Emerson field so that it can afford
two football fields, forty new tennis
courts, and two athletic Velds now
under construction, one of them to be
used solely for mass athletics. Al
nis courts, five football fields, four
baseball fields, and ten basketball

The s-tampede of students since
Sunday night has filled Chapel Hill
to overflowing. The streets are
crowded with old men and new.
"Glad to see you," and "Had a big
summer?" have been heard until it
has become monotonous. Handshak
ing has been the order of the day.
The Post Office has proven to be the
most popular place for the studes to
gather and . swap yarns about the
wonderful timei had during the three
menths parole. Some- have been
everywhere, others nowhere. Some
sold pretty pictures in the coal' mines
of Pennsylvania, made a, barnstorm
ing tour of the southwestjid Mexi
co, others; remained on the d home
stead and helped raise a ctop of to
bacco. All had their yarns.
Never has there been such a rush
for hoxes at the Post Office. When
the window opened early Monday
morning there was a long line wait
ing for boxes and all were rented
before it el.ud. One Freshman got
in line at nine o'clock and the lat
box was rented just before he reached
uhe window after several hours of
patient waiting. Other places re
sembling a bee hive from 't!vj activ
ity therein, were Memorial Hall dur
ing registeration, and the cafeterias.
Both Miss Cates' place and Niok
have done a thriving business. Lines
waiting to be served reached the
length of the building and across the
sidew.jlk on several occasions.
These are only a few of the lightest
troubles resulting from the rutih of
the overflow. Treasurer yirren
messed things up considerably for
ftoaiva btudejils whva h Hold their
rooms to other applicants because
the entire room rent had not been
paid in advance. Upon entering
the Treasurer's offiue the student is
informed that his room has b::en
given to some ona else because of
failure to comply with regulations
laid down by the Treasurer. lie is
then given another man's room who
is in the same plight.
The increased jam and overtaxed
accommodations is indicative of the
increase in the student body. Re
ports front the Registrar's office
seem to confirm an earlier statement
that Carolina will have at least two
thousand two hundred students. Of
this number seven hundred and fifty
will be freshmen. The Freshman,
class would have been even much lar
ger than this had not tfie Registrar
been forced from lack of rooms and
other accommodations, to refuse ap
plicants desiring piaces on the cam
pus. The Co-eds are with us again this
year and in larger numbers. Tlte)
