Dr. Hamilton" Speaks on Abe
Lincoln at Rotarx Banquet.
At the regular meeting and ban
quet of the Chapel Hill Rotary Club,
held in the ball room of the Carolina
Inn last Wednesday evening,5 Dr. J.
G. deRoulhac Hamilton, head of the
University History Department, lec
tured on Lincoln's life in relation to
pur 'own. He was presented . to the
Club by Dr. R. D. W. Connor, of the
same department. c ' ''
"Lincoln is the most lied 'about
man "m the world. ' Therefore, the
people of the South do tiot get a clear
picture, ordinarily, of just what sort
of man Lincoln was and the things
he stood fori It has been very easy,"
said Dr. Hamilton'. oirI;ihMte"-to:
be deified, ''and Lincoln has been dei
fied to the extent of absurdity. Why,
even one person said that every time
he looked at the figure or face of
Lincoln, he shed tears." '"
Dr. ! Ha'milton stressed the v fact
that up until the time of the Civil
War, Lincoln was just a niere man,
even as the ordinary men one sees
upon the streets of Chapel Hill, but
Lit took the split in the party to put
him int&Coffice as President of the
United States, and it' also took the
Civil WTar to bring out those qualities
which had been latent within him.
"Linc6ln was more opposed by his
own party than- Woodrow Wilson.
But even his enemies turned over to
his side. His main object was to
restore the South, and' he" kept up to
those ideals right on up to the time
of his premature death." Dr. Ham
ilton finished his address' by quoting
Lincoln's last words. They were, 'I
hope for a restoration of a Union of
hearts and hands as well as states."
DrHamilton's address was one of
the -programs in which students and
faculty members are participating at
the weekly Rotary Club banquets.
