The building has just been completed,
Dean Dudley D. Carroll and mem
bers of the staff of instruction of the
school of Commerce occupied their of
fices and began class work in the new
building, and all were highly pleased
with this realization of a long-felt

The new building, said to be one
of the best constructed on the campus,

the school of Commerce and the class
rooms and laboratories of the depart
ments of economics and commerce.
It is three stories in height, and be
sides has 13 class rooms, four labora

rooms, one auditorium seating 250,
and a mimeographing room. It" is
situated on the Southern end of the
campus just below Murphy Hall and
next to the University's new library.
Work was begun last June. Cost of
construction was $160,000.
The school of Commerce now has
560 students, and, besides these, many
students from other schools of the
University take courses offered in
economics and commerce.

In all the annals of crime and mis
hap at Carolina there is no record of
any building's being so great a victim
of ill fortune as was Grimes dormi
tory during the recent spring holi
days. It was broken into, robbed, and
flooded. Woebegone Grimes has about
recovered from her plight, but part
of the case is still shrouded in mys
tery. ' '
The flood came Thursday night,
and Uncle Louis, the venerable jani
tor, declares that it was the biggest
mess he has ever seen during his
long years of service at the Univer
sity. When he arrived at work Fri
day morning the floor of his private
living room, located in the basement
of Grimes, was deeply submerged.
Uncle Louis followed the trickling and
seeping rivulets to the first floor,
found that flooded, and in amazement
discovered that the water was coming
from yet higher. He waded up the
stairs to the second floor where the
water stood ankle-deep in the
ridor and every room.
It was upon the second floor that
Uncle Louis and his fellow-janitor,
Pope, heard someone yelling for help
and upon opening the door of the room
whence the cries came they found the
disconsolate occupant .seated high
and dry upon his bed, while profanity
and water rippled fluently about the
room. The boy shouted that his res
cuers had arrived just in time to save
him from getting his. feet wet, want
ed to know what in thunder had hap
pened, and swore that his rugs, shoes.
suitcases and everything else on the
floor were ruined.

Chapel Hill Folks and Students
Are Joyful Over His Declina
tion of Tempting Proposition;
Third Offer In Past Few
In a recent statement issued by
Dr. H. W. Chase, president of the
University, he has definitely decided
o remain at the University by de
clining the offer recently tendered
him some time ago by the Social
Science Research Council, which car
ries with it a salary of $20,000,
which is nearly twice the amount
that he receives at present, as well as
raveling expenses and a liberal re
tiring allowance.
Close observers in Chapel Hill
view the situation as one in which the
president turned down a high salaried
and comparatively easy position for
one that will continue to require his
best efforts along lines of manage
ment, tact, and policy. Persons at
tending the University and resident
in Chapel Hill realize the importance
that the legislatures and the influ
ence of changing "governors have
upon the institution. They know
that the University being mostly sup
ported by the state, its welfare is
very apt to be at the mercy of what-
ever political tneories regaroing
economy or its management as are
current in the political world of the
Dr. Chase has always striven to
prove the . distinct advantages oi
higher education as the creation of an
asset rather than an expense. Uni
versity and college leaders through
out the entire' state have been very
greatly encouraged by Dr. Chase's
decision to stay. He is still a young
man with liberal ideas, and the Uni
versity is congratulating itself upon
being able to hold the interest and
the service of such a leader.
This off er is the third of such po
sitions of larger trust and salary that
have been offered President Chase
during the past few years, the other
two being the presidencies of the
Universities of Oregon, and the City
of Cincinnatti.

"Professor Connor has written a
charming account of the people of the

"Political history has been given

No class of people and no aspect of
the life of the people has been slight

with refreshing candor and commend
able impartiality."
Prof. Moore declares that "when
the history of each of our states has

written the history of North Carolina,
then we may know the history of our
states and then some scholar gifted
with historical and literary imagina
tion may write a true and stirring
