i - American Universities." ;
' '"The University "of North Carolina is
the U-aclinjf educational institution in the
' south" Dr. Chase told tlie Wake County
Aliinmi chapter yesterday in Raleigh.
"I say this not in boasting .spirit, bul
as based on facts. In support of. this
statement we have such salient facts as
the "admission of the University to the
Association of 'American Universities,
- which is made ip of tIu-25 very strong
est institutions in America. The Univer
sity is tlie only Southern institution hold
ing membership." President Chase fol
lowed this statement a brief enu
meration of instances in which national
recognition has been accorded various
. schools and facultymen in the University.
The moral , tone of the campus was
vigorously defended by the President.
"There is nothing that makes me more
'indignant than the lodse and unjust crit
icism of moral and religious standards
on tlie campus,. It seems to me that the
standards in these '.things are pretty well
indicated by the .type of the leaders that
it chooses." The Y. M. C. A. Cabinet
was pointed out as being composed of
men thatwere outstanding athletes and
class leaders. - .
Tlie. social sciences were upheld as be
ing an important study, though compara
tively new. "The welfare and happiness
of mankind is, after all, more of import
ance than purely . material progress".
The University President did not com
ment dirccUyxon the recent refusal of
the textile industry to allow tlie depart
ment of social sciences to study condi
tions in the'miUs! -'vAn explanation of
the Laura Spelman Rockefeller .tounci
ation was. made.'. The local department

and efficiently handled as to justify the
giving to it of a huge sum of money in

Semi-Annual Session Holds
Meeting in Raleigh
CAMPUS LIFE IS CLEAN
Dr. Chase Says Conditions At UniVer
; sity . Today Are Sound.
At a meeting of the Board of Trust
ees of the University in Raleigh on the
morning of Tuesday, January-25, it was
decided to continue the practice of in
viting some distinguished person to make
an address at the annual commencement
exercises, despite a recommendation sub
mitted by the University faculty to the
contrary. - - ' ".''' --.. -;.
The Board of Trustees; holding their
semi-annual; session in Raleigh unani
mously 6ted down this faculty sugges
tion. The recommendation was made
with the idea of shortening the com
mencement exercises, but the Trustees,
jt.iost of whom return to Chapel Hill every
spring during commencement week, did
hot feel that the time-honored custom
should be abolished. . The Board endorsed
Mr. Walter Murphy's-'statement that
the address of Glenn Frank, President of
the University of Wisconsin, delivered at
the exercises .last year,, was in itself suf
ficient justification for continuing the
practise. . , .
President Chase,- who presented the
recommendatjoji , without presenting ,his
own views orn,the matter, explained that
he wanted to set himself right, having
been absent when the faculty took its
action. "Tell the faculty that you have
set yourself right and that the trustees
have sat down , on the faculty," replied
Josephus' Daniels, Who presided at the
meeting in place of Governor McLean.
In addition to passing upon this reso
lution there were several other important
matters to be considered by the Board
The report of President Chase was given
and a committe was appointed to draw
Up a memorial for "the late Judge W. P
Bynuin. A memorial was also voted to

Townsend was elected to" succeed Judge

the following were re-eiectea tor terms
of three years each: W. N. Everett,
Haywood Parker, Josephus Daniels, and
A. M. Scales. The Trustees decided to
give the general alumni association finan
cial support on a fifty-fifty basis, pro
vided the aliwunU should not exceed
$7,500.' "'" ';'"' .
; In rendering his report President Chase
departed from the conventional type -of
such reports and devoted the greater
part to an explanation of the way in
which the University makes use of its
income and expenditures. He stated that
"the University operates definitely on a
budget system and has 'done so for many
years. The system followed by the Uni
versity is one that is followed by the
larger Universities all over the country.
Every one of the approximately 35 de
partments and administrative divisioHBS
of the University has at the beginning of

Francis MacMillen Plays to Au
dience of 200 Monday
Difficult Selections Feature Program
Frequent Encores Are Rendered.
On Monday evening Francis' MacMil
len, probably the greatest violinist to
perform here In several years, was heard
in a recital In Memorial Hall. An audi
ence of over 200 was present and fre
quent encores were given. Mr. Mac Mil-"
len's program was excellent In its entire
ty although a preponderance of selec
tions making a display of technical skill
seemed unnecessary. Many of his num
bers featured superb harmonic effects
but those of simpler composition won
the most applause. He was accompanied
by Ralph Angell at the piano. -
As his opening number he offered
Sindiug's famaliur Romance. Its clear
sylvan melody served, as a worthy intro
duction to the balance of the program.
The soft strains of this work never fall
to grip an audience. Prelude and Alle
gro, Pugnanl-Kreisler, was a marvelous
demonstration of technique but little
more. It twas overlong, extremely dis
jointed and at times bordered on the
discordant. The Symphonic Espagnole
by Lalo was one of tlie best renditions
of the evening. The rapid allegro move
ment was interspread with difficule runs
and harmonics; in the division andante
the tempo was decreased and skilled
finger work gave a tremulous beauty to
the theme. This number was enthusias
The second half of the program was
introduced by Winthrop Cortelyou's Al
legro Grazioso. In this the performer
again gave an exhibition of his masterly
control. Double stops were freely em-
ployed and a muted string interpolltkm
was especially pleasing. Barcorole, . a
piece of Mr. MacMillens own 'composi
tion, was from the audience's viewpoint
the most successful of all. It was only
a simple, lyric melody with a minimum
of useless display, but its appeal was
irreslstable and the artist was accorded
a veritable ovation at its conclusion. This
