University's Summer School
Oldest in America, to Begin
June 13 with Stroiig Faculty
There Will Be Wider Range ; of
Courses and Longer Sessions
Than Ever Before.
Sir Esme Howard
The University of North Carolina
Summer School oldest in the coun
trywhich is to begin its 42nd ses
sion on June 13, enjoys an enviable
reputation of more than half a cen
tury's service to its state.
How well it has played its part,
how well it has filled its purpose of
raising the standards of North Caro
lina teachers by giving them free in
struction by experts during their
non-working months comes to mind as
a new term of the Summer School is
about to begin. " -
A few figures tell the story. Uni
versity summer schools have given in
struction, to 27,494 young men and
women. The vast majority of these
have been teachers who have carried
their learning back to their own pu
pils. The Summer School reached its
record enrolment last summer, with
2656, and in that session exaetly 1196
teachers received free tuition.
Many people know that the Univer
sity is the oldest state university in
America.: Few know that the Sum
mer School enjoys a similar position
as an educational pioneer. And fewer
still realize its tremendous service to
the state since it was begun back in
How the School Began -
Since the Civil War North Carolina
has not ranked high educationally. It
has never had a -wealth of teacher-
training institutions, and teachers
make the schools. The educational
crusade since 1900 has raised the
state from 48th to 39th in education,
and the University Summer School in
raising teachers' standards has been
a big factor.
Its worth to the state has been ap
preciated from the beginning. Opened
in 1877, it took but one session to
prove its worth. Scores of prominent
citizens lauded the undertaking and
its notable purposes. Colonel Robert
Bingham, the educator," even went so

During the day, faculty, townspeo
ple, and members of the senior class

10 :30 in the morning there' was V: a
general meeting of all alumni in Ger
rard Hall. This session was indeed
an interesting spectacle. Here . were
reunited three generations of alumni,
who knew the University in three" dif
ferent eras and stages of its develop
ment, reminiscing over past days and
exnressiner wonderment at the new

presided over the ceremonies. , Talks
were made by representatives of the
various reuning classes. . ; :
After this meeting broke up, alumni

of men are more than mere"- goods, and
that peace and contentment are more

words, is what Sir Esme thinks of
America. Americans have a corre
spondingly, high regard for him.
His recent statement that the Brit

up the liquor privilege should -the

The senior class banquet, held at
the Carolina Inn Friday night, was
featured by a speech from Judge
Francis D. Winston and the election
of . permanent class officers.
Judge Winston declared that the
state of ' North Carolina needed more
than anything else at the present time
was efficient leadership of business
men. "We've lived haphazard long
enough' he said, "and the profes
sions have been discredited. The
state faces new problems and the
leadership falls to our trained busi
ness men. ,
"Your diploma means you have been
branded by the state as the best man
kind North Carolina can produce.
There's work for every man. Go out
in life prepared to lead and raise the
standards of your state and its peo
ple. Every One of you should be busy
from Monday on." I

ston's address, President Carr called

cers of '29. Bowman Gray, of

dent and Walter Spearman, of Char
