Prominent on Many Faculty

Of college and University prof es

men of learning are hired primarily
to teach, but their duties do not end
with the classroom not if they hope
to serve well their own. communities
or to gain recognition in the academic
College professors must spend con
siderable time in the preparation of
their classes. They must serve' oji
various committees, and nothing can
consume so much . valuable time as
committees. They must ; hold fre
r quent conferences with their students,
listen to their tales of woe as well as
an occasional glad tiding, and try to
helpthem pole their problems. . ' Then
there is trie important -matter of re
i earch which fascinates a consider-'3.V.C-
number of academicians, and
-tVeis the speech-making that must
- be attended to, if the University is to
be j. :operly represented on the plat
forms here and out in the State and
throughout the country. And of
course the matter' of writing papers
for Scholarly journals and attending
meetings of scholarly societies cannot
be overlooked. These are some of the
numerous .. things that compete for

Two Types College Professors
Broadly speaking there are two
fairly well defined types ol college
professors those who achieve with
in the academic, walls and those who
gain their-chief recognition on the
outside. Of course there 13 some over-
lapping of the two types; it would not
be otherwise. The first named class
includes those actively identified with
.work on some of the various Univer
sity committees, those serving in some
administrative capacity, and the like.
- In the latter class would be included
those who spend hour upon hour n
problems of research the original
most , of them do
that research here on the campus,
but, if they should succeed in working
. out' their problems, their fame' i3
spread to the four corners of the
earth. Included in this latter class
also must be , those who devote con
siderable, time to the work of scholar
ly societies and journals. And quite,
naturally there would x be others to
come under this classification.
' Was .Versatile. Leader
, Doctor Andrew Henry Patterson, in
whose recent death' the University
faculty lost one of its most valuable
leaders, belonged to the 'former type.
He was widely known throughout the
country and had attained consider
able prominence as a science educa
tor, but, when the records are writ
ten and an attempt is made to ap
praise that phase of his life work
that man put most of his heart into, it
must be set down that Andrew Pat
terson was the type who loved most
the work within the academic walls.
As President Harry Chase so fit
' tingly said, the place that Dr. Patter
son made for "himself "is one we can
The ordinary duties of the Dean
of the School of Applied Science would
be generally regarded as enough to
occupy one man's time, but in addi
tion to his administrative duties Dr.
Patterson, whose specialty was phys
ics, found time for teaching. - He was
a member of half a dozen of the Uni
versity's standing ; faculty commitr
tees, and they were committees that
consume time by - the hour. In the
administrative councils of the Univer
sity his advice was always sought and
appreciated. Whenever any matter
,came up that pertained to athletics
he had been a member of the Ath
letic Council for years to fraterni
ties, to matters of alumm co-operation,
to public occasions and cele
brations, or to "student life -and ac

PRESIDENT CHASE'S WELCOME
It is a pleasant privilege to welcome the student body
of the University as it comes together for this 135th ses
sion of the University of North Carolina. "
I congratulate those of you who are here for the first
time. You-have come into a fellowship which will be of
vital significance in shaping your careers. You are sur
rounded by an environment rich in opportunity. It is jyou
who in a very fundamental way are responsible for your
own careers here. What other people do for you or leave
undone is of far less importance than what you do or what
you leave undone for yourselves.. This is 3. place where
every man stands on his own feet.
Td you who have been here before and to whom the
campus is already home I need say only that we are glad
that you are baclC You know what life here means. You
have demonstrated your ability to cope with it. It is my
firm conviction that every year of a college educations
dividends that increase in geometric ratio, so. that each
added Jear is far more useful thart the last. If only you
stay awake to the challenge of Opportunity here, you are
making the wisest sort of investment of your time. -
And so in the confidence and with the assurance that
with the cooperation of all of us a year of significant
promise lies ahead, I welcome you to the work and the
play, to the pleasure and duties of this session of the
-University of North Carolina.
Clothiers Divest Freshmen
Of Money As University Meets
Chapel Hill felt the lash of the
hurricane's tail that flicked up from
the south last Tuesday and Wednes
day. - For two days and as many
nights the swirling rains and shriek
ing winds charged and countercharg
ed back and forth across town. All
day Tuesday the nine hundred new
ly arrived freshmen cowered about
under . nine , , . hundred - yellow, olive,
black and tan raincoats; while fresh
man registration went forward Wed
nesday in Memorial Hall with anoth
er monstrosity of a day raging' out
side. Thus was the old axiom again
upheld: "It always rains-for the
freshmen." Why don't th'e sages of
Old South change the opening date?,;
Wednesday dawned clear and cool,
a fine day for gathering up broken
branches, and-chopping, fallen trees.
Wind blown leaves, branches, twigs,
and limbs covered the campus,-and
one or two great trees were down;
notably a large oak between Alumni
Building and Graham Memorial.
But these were not the only effects
of the storm upon -. the University.
Numbers of upperclassmen. kept com
ing in after registration closed
Thursday, kept coming Friday," and
there are probably many still to
come. These are the boys from the
eastern part of the state They just
couldn't got through when the high
ways anaJ railroads' were under sev
eral feet of muddy water.
The boys from, the east bring
tales of preposterously ,hign waters,
tracks and roads washed out, , high
ways blocked, wires and trees down,
buildings blown away, trains ma
rooned between washouts, tourists
marooned between, swollen streams-
and so on' into the night the great
bull sessions go. '

The one hundred and thirty fifth
session of the University of North

Chapel period with President Harry
Woodburh Chase presiding at a mass
meeting of - the student body. "I

clared that "The most significant
eyent of this "generation in the Sotli
is the extent to which this entire area
is being , linked iip with the rest of
the nation.". In explaining that 'the
day of sectionalism is over, he traced
the remarkable material develop
ment which has brought about the
unification of the various sections of
the United States into a closely
knit whole.. "No great enterprise
of any character canvtoday be under
taken in , the South without regard
for the other sections of the nation.
The local, the provincial, the individ
ualistic is passing rapidly. If you
are going to be a good Southerner
and a good North Carolinian, you"
must first be a good American, he
said. But he .continued to say that
'"I do "not mean that the South should
not have a great creative contribu
tion to the "nation, 'but that it must '
first accept American conditions and
build upon that acceptance." .
President " Chase's analysis of the
New South was along four pivotal
lines. The first question, which he
raised was "Is the ; development in
the South which inevitably lies ahead
to come about through Southerners,
or must the mastery of this region
be yielded to others?" Hisnswer to
the question was that it depends al-'
most entirely upon the extent to

of Silence the Faculty Advisor on
Fraternities will summon every man
who receives a bid to some con
venient place selected by him at which
time each man- shall appear alone
before the Advisor and any Assist
ants whom the Council may select to
aid him and state in writing his first
second and third- choice of Fraterni
ties he would like to join, or may
have reason to expect bids from. The
Advisor, after consulting the list of
bids, shall then direct him to the house
of the Fraternity of his highest
choice among those bidding him, but
not informing him of any other bids"
he may have received, and putting1
him on his honor not to disclose to
anyone his choice before arriving at
the proper- . Fraternity house and
putting on the pledge button. The
Freshman's choice as stated to the
Advisor shall be - considered as final,

ternity violates in any way the. rules
regulating rushing, (as defined in
the .by-laws),, during the Period of
Silence, his Fraternity chapter' shall
be denied the . privilege of pledging
or initiating for the period of twelve
months dating : from" the time of the
said violation, and ' shall' also 'forfeit
a One Hundred Dollar Bond which

Freshmen have been placed in the
hands of the; Treasurer of the Inter
Fraternity Council at the opening, of
the Fall Quarter. In case any Fresh

of the rules.

place of the traditional leisure" which "
has for so many years f held the
South back to a level of second-rate
achievement; "There have been too
many Southern poets heralded as
Shakespeares'pf the 'South who should
have been blushing unseen!" he com
plained, and urged that the people
of the South face the facts and let
sincerity prevail. - Referring to the
direct effect of such a situation ,
upon the University student, he told
the freshmen that "Either you should
achieve as a student here or you
should . go somewhere else where
standards are not so exacting or the
importance of work is not recognized."
Her next galled to mind the present
trend inall fields of modern thought
and showed that the importance of a
respect for ideas is today paramount.
"This civilization of science and in
dustry is a merciless civilization,"
he said, "and .more and more the bat-.
tie goes to him who knows and thinks
his way through the problems which
confront him. '
"We must learn the importance of
cooperation, of the ability to work to
gether, and most recognize that the
day of the individual working in iso
lation, apart from the cooperation of
fellow , men has passed forever. I
have heard it said that the secret of
the great imprint of the Anglo-Saxon
race upon the history of the world .
is due to the spirit of cooperation." -He
urged that every student at the
University be a University, man, but
realize that the cause of education
is greater than the cause of any one
institution; that he be a North Caro-
linian, but realize that America . is
greater than any one state; and that
he be an .American, yet realize that
America, is one member of a great
cooperative world unit. - v
In conclusion, President Chase
pointed out that- "One; of the great
est tasks of the modern man is to
live at peace with himself, fcr this
is a confusing time, a time of strain
and upset in the life of the individ
ual, the state, the section, the nation,
and the world." He repudiated the
"shelter found by locking the doors ..
of .the intellect against the disorders
