CO 1903 THE CAROLINIAN Charles Duncan Mclver JARLES DUNCAN AIcI " ER, eldest of nine children of Mat- thew Henry Mclver and Sarah J. Harrington, was born in the conminnity of old Buffalo Presbyterian Church, near San ford in Moore County, North Carolina, September 27th, 1860. In this thrifty Scotch settlement, noted for godly living and a high standard of in telligence, the Mclvers bore an honored and intlnential name. They were men of culture, and their large estates, though per- sonally directed, were worked by a well cared for body of slaves. Their homes were comfortably furnished in good taste, and liberally supplied with the best books. Matthew Henry Alclver was one of the influential men of his com- munity. He was a successful farmer of excellent judgment, an elder in Buft ' alo Church, and highly esteemed by a wide circle of friends. .Kfter being fitted for college he gave up his intention of entering the State University in order to assume the management of his father ' s estate. This step he afterwards regretted, and he early impressed upon his own children the error of his youthful decision. On his return from cavalry service in the Confederate army he taught school for a brief time, and through life gave personal attention to the studies of his children, and provided at individual expense for their proper instruction. Evan- der Mclver, father of Matthew Henry and grandfather of Charles Duncan, was familiarly known as Scotch Ei ' cr Iclver. At the age of eight years he emi- grated to North Carolina from the beautiful Isle of Skye, home and final resting place of the celebrated Flora AlacDonald. By inheritance, and by suc- cessful industry, he became one of the largest land-owners in Moore County. He was an exceptionally well-read and well-informed man, and the owner of a library that would be considered large even in this day of many books. Dr. W. S. Lacy, in his historical sketch of Buffalo Church, pays high tribute to the " strong character and wide influence " of this able man. The mother of Charles D. Mclver survives her distinguished son. She. too, on her maternal side is of Highland Scotch ancestry and her mother ' s family name. McNeill, fills an hon- ored place in the amials of both Scotland antl America. The Harringtons, her 6 THE CAROLINIAN Vol.1. father and liis kiiisfulk, were nf luiylish descent. They were prosperous people of high social standing, whose name may he found in an official and legislative capacity in the historical records of our State. .S])rung from this noble ancestry, of which in his democratic sympathies he said little even to his most intimate friends: inheriting with strength of mind and body a reverent faith in God; and early taught b - a cultured mother the dignity of manual labor and a love for what is best in human achievement ; — Charlie ilclvcr grew up a fine specimen of vigorous, self-reliant young manhood, strong in the determination to wear worthily an honored name and to be of some service to his State and generation. In the fall of 1877 young Mclver entered the University of North Carolina. A mong the students in attendance there and destined to be intimately associated with him in his educational labors of later years, were Charles B. Aycock, Edwin A. Alderman and James Y. Joyner. Mclver entered with characteristic zeal upon his new and broader life. He kept himself clean in mind and body, made wholesome progress in his studies, grew steadily in the estimation of faculty and students, won special distinction in Greek. Latin and French, and was hon- orably graduated in 1881 with the A. B. degree. The fall of 1881 found him filling an assistant ' s place in a private school at Durham. A few months later he became principal of the school. During the spring of 1882 a movement was inaugurated at Durham for the establishment of a public school .system supported by local taxation. When the opponents of the movement, thinking of course that a private school man would be quick to oppose a measure so adverse to his own interests, invited Mclver to unite with them in accomplishing its defeat, they were amazed to hear him reply, " I shall not oppose it : on the contrary, I intend to vote for it and to do all in my power to see that the election is carried. " The election was carried and the progressive young educator was called upon to assist in the organization of the system, and to serve as the first principal of the Durham Graded Schools. Eighteen months later he was called to Winston to perform a similar work of organization for the newly-established graded schools of that city. There he remained from ] ' " ebruary, 1SS4. until September, 188Ci, when he became principal of the literar_ ' Aleanwhile. rnilcsscr Mclver, as he now came to be called, had associated himself with the North Carolina Teachers ' Assembly and henceforth took an active part in all its deliberations. Every summer vacation was devoted to county institute work. He was thus gaining a more intimate acquaintance with his fellow-teachers anil familiarizing himself with the educational needs of his THE CARO LI N I AN Stale. Aliire iinpurtant still as affectiiiy l)i)th his happiness and future career, he was married in 1885, to Lula V. Martin, a graduate of Salem Academy and one of the most successful teachers of North Carolina. She it was who first directed his attention to the inadequate facilities for woman ' s education, and at her suggestion he made, before a teachers ' institute at ' inston. his first public speech in behalf of the higher education of women. At the time of her marriage she was a teacher in the Winston schools. Later she was lady principal of a seminary at Charlotte and was actively associated with her husband in his insti- tute and campaign work. She had a mutual part in formulating the plans which led to the establishment of the State Normal and Industrial College, and gave valuable assistance in all the details of its organization. Meanwhile the husband grew more and more zealous in the cause of educa- tion, especially public education. He magnified his calling, emphasized the dignity of teaching as a profession, urged better preparation and advocated the establishment of a State training school for teachers. For five years he now labored with apostolic fervor for the higher education of women. The school teacher, he declared, is our most important public official, and the proper train- ing of women is the strategic point in the education of the race. He became the recognized leader of a new movement and as such was appointed by the Teachers ' Assembly chairman of a committee to urge upon the General Assem- bly the necessity of establishing a State school for teachers. He urged, he ])leaded, he wrote, he argued, addressing schools, clubs, institutes, general audi- ences, and the Legislature. The first bill presented to the General Assembly failed of passage by a few votes. Mclver knew no discouragement. Another Assem- bly would meet in two years, and he would in the meanwhile carry his message direct to the people. His earnest labors had already caused the dawn of an educational renaissance. Provision was made for two assistants to the State Superintendent of Education. Charles D. Mclver and E. A. Alderman were called to the work, their duties, briefly stated, being to conduct teachers ' insti- tutes in every county and to thoroughly arouse the people to the necessity of education. Now began one of the most important campaigns ever conducted in the State, and perhaps one of the most interesting in the history of public education. For three years, from September, 1889, to September, 1902, winter and summer, these men preached a crusade in behalf of unversal education. In every county and in every important city and town in the State, by lectures, by teaching, by iniblic addresses, by conferences with teachers and school committeemen, by THE CAROLINIAN talks willi taniKTS. editors, county ot ciaU and politicians, by ever}- apiirovcd method, in short, known to advocate and reformer the work was dihgently and vigorously prosecuted. And through it all and at the base of all and dominating all was the keynote sounded by Mclver: " The cheapest, easiest, and surest road to universal education is to educate the women, those who are to be the mothers and teachers of future generations. " The work was done as it had never been done before, — as it need never be done again in North Carolina. In 1891 Chairman jMcIver and his associates were again before the Legislature with a bill for the establishment of a State institution for the higher education and normal training of women. The bill passed almost without opposition and Charles Duncan Mclver was elected president. Now it was that this people ' s servant entered u])on the work of building a people ' s college, an institution that should be worthy of the great State that gave it l)irth. It should be an open door of opportunity to every worthy white girl within the borders of the Commonwealth — a means of fitting her for good and useful citizenship. A woman ' s college for North Carolina women it should be, characterized by sound learning, liberal culture, earnest living and high think- ing. The best that a State could give should be theirs ; the best that educated women could give should be the State ' s. In this spirit was the institution con- ceived, and in this spirit the State Normal and Industrial College lived and grew anad prosj ered. presided over, insjiired. guided and led by one who gave it all that man may give. It is doubtful if any other public institutitm was ever in so true a sense the product of the unselfish love and labor of one man. As to him in largest meas- ure are owing its conception and creation, so to him are due the policy which characterizes it, and the success which it has achieved. And this is true not merely in the larger matters pertaining to its general management, but in the many details relating to its work and administration. The college plant and its equi])nient. the departments of instruction, the courses of study, the various organizations, the ideas for which the institution stands, the spirit it exemplifies, the work it seeks to accomplish, all these are of his creation and this not through mere formal oversight and ofificial dictation, but through the living spirit of creative work and fellow-service. The hand and heart and l rain of Dr Mclver were felt throughout the insti- tution, but most, perhaps, in what may be called the spirit of the College. Its s])iritual and mental atmosphere was a life-giving tonic, an iminilse to noble THE CAROLINIAN ciuk ' a ' iir and unseltish service. Courage, ])atiencc, tolerance, self-reliance, patriolism, faith, self-control and, above all, a laudable desire to extend a helpins( hand to others — these were fruits of the s])irit, jjriceless in value and immeasur- able in influence. This was the C ' ulk ' e as .Mcl er founded it — not a local habita- tion of brick and stone, but a imwer in human life. Important as are these ser -iccs the ' constilnte but a |iart of the labors which won for Dr. .Mclver State and uatinnal recn ;niti( .n as an eihicational leader and statesman. " He was, " Ui (piote the words nt one editnrial and the substance of hund reds of tilers, " the State ' s must useful citizen, a leading force in every movement Inokint;- for prnL;i-ess in Xi.rth Carolina.

" Df the extent and wide variety of Dr. Alclver ' s public service space does not permit us to speak. Nor may we even give a list of the honors conferred upon him, or the names of the scores of organizations to which he belonged. Some of these latter, such as the Xorih Carojina ketniion Association and the Women ' s lietterment Association, he organizeil: many of them, includitig the National Educational . ssiiciation, the Southern Educational Assnciatidn. the Southern Educational Hoard and the North Carolina Teachers ' .Vsseniblw he served in an official capacity; and all of them, local. State and national, felt tlie guiding influence of his wonderfully helpful and inspiring personality. Beginning with his first educational labors at Durham in 1881 and continuing to his lamented death, September 17, 1906, Dr. JMcIver gave to North Carolina and to humanity twenty-five years of active and beneficent service. Who shall estimate its value? dlo shall reckon its ever-continuing and ever-multi])lying influence? The Ceneral .Vssemhly has seen lit tc erect a memorial building in his honor. This is well, for it adds to the efficiency of an institution whose mission it is to serve the people of North Carolina. Others have said: " The College is his monument. Look about you — all this we owe to Alclver. " This is true and we do well to bear it in memory. But in a truer, larger sense, the ever-living Alclver memorial is the blessed influence of his life in others. It lives today, when we who knew him. and loved him, and leaned hard w Km him gratefully recognize its abitling influence; and it will endure — such our faith and consolation — till time shall be no more. ,ER MEMORIAL BUILDING THE CAROLIN IAN Charles Duncan Mclver Editorial Editorial Staff The Faculty Senior Class Junior Class Sophomore Class Freshman Class A Toast (Poem) Commercial Department Adelphian Society Cornelian Society Marshals Xornial Magazine V.

" If this be true of a class as well as of a cmintry. then the first year of the Class of 1909 was a hajjpy one. W ' e know that some time (luring the fall of 1 ' 0. this Class was organized. It consisted of only nineteen members, who adopted for their colors light blue and white, and for their flower the white carnation. We were iluring the first year of our existence as college students much as other Freshmen are, as green as the average " new girl, " but we hope no more so, and though few in number, we were stout of heart and determined to live up to our motto — " Carpc diem. " During the spring term of our first year on St. Patrick ' s Eve wc were enter- tained in a most delightful manner by the Sophomores. A little more than a month later, on the twenty-seventh of April, we invited the Seniors and Faculty to assembly on the campus in front of the Administration Building to witness the planting of our tree. Slowly ami silently through the darkness there stalked from all quarters of the camjnis ghosts bearing lanterns decorated with ghastly skulls and cross-bones. These ghosts gathered together and with impressive ceremony planted the linden which is now the cherished emblem of our Class. In September. I ' MKi. those faithful members of this little band who had bravely overcome the difiiculties of I ' reshman examinations, returned to the College wise Sophomores. Ve were glad to be together again after three months of rest and pleasure, and were ready to assume our new duties. But how changed the College seemed without our beloved President, Dr. ] lclver. Al- though we had known him for so short a time, his kindly smile and jileasant. cherry work had nia le brighter many a day for us: his wonderful ]«, rsonalil)- had inspired us. and we loved him. ■e realize that coming in contact, even for a few months, with a spirit such as his can not but have a lasting influence upon our lives. This year we spent earnestly struggling — sometimes in vain — with unknowns, sines and cosines, algebra problems, Horace and ' ergil. However, we still had a little time for other pleasures than those derived from studv. (Jur basket- THE CAROLI N I AN liall team was i iri anized and siiK ' c that time (nie of (jur ambitions has been to win a siiKjlr (jamc. We began early in the year to discuss plans for entertaining the Freshmen. After earefnily weigliing tlie matter, we finally decided on a Mother (loose i)arty as ilie most litling enteilairmient for them. So, on the twenty-tliir l of I ' ' el)ruary we put a a ' our Sophomore dignity, and, together with the l ' " reshmen, enjoyed an evening with Ab)ther (loose, Little Bo-Peep, Jack and Jill, and otiier old friends of our childhood. Before we were aware of it, Ajjril had come again and with it the birthday of our tree. Again ghost-like forms appe;ncd around the tree of 1909, where with song and yell and weird ceremony we eelebraied its lirst birthday. The remaining- few weeks of this spring were full of work and, for the most part, uneventful. However, during commencement there occiured an event of great interest to irs as, indeed, it was to every one comieeted with the (.Ullege. This was the election of Mr. Foust as iur president. Those of us who have been .-it the institution since his election, and have seen his earnest and constant efforts in behalf of us and our College, rejoice in the choice of the board of directors and feel that they could have found no more worthy successor to our first great president than Mr. Foust. On September thirtieth, njoj, the Junior Class held its first meeting. During the year l ' )0 " -l ' ' OS nothing of great importance occurred in the history of the Class. During the fall term, when our minds were not occupied with jingle bells, electric batteries, wireless telegraphy, pedagogy, iisyehology or some other sub- ject of ecjual gravity, we were busy making paper roses, planning costumes and making menu cards. For we hoped to entertain the Class of 1 ' ' 08 before the Christmas holidays. But our plans were frustrated and it was not luitil l-Vbruar)- the first that our preparations were completed. On the evening of this date the Seniors assembled at ' ersailles where King Louis XI ' , assisted by the ladies and gentlemen of his court, gave a royal ban(|uet in their honor. April again brought the birthday of our tree. This time the celebration in honor of it was more elaliorate than it had e er ijeen before. The ghosts appeared bearing lanterns as in other years. But besides her lantern each weird sister bore in her hand something that had brought to the Juniors worry or trouble. Near the linden tree a huge caldron boiled and bubbled. The ghostly forms circled around the tree and each one with fitting words flung into the caldron the object of her hatred. Geometry, algebra, Latin, chemistry, shared the same fate. Then the Class .Song was sung, the Yell given and the ghosts quietly van- ished in the tlarkness. 48 THE CAROLINIAN W.I.I. With tlie opeiiiny of the Oilk-yc in tlic fall of l ' »OS the Class of 1909 took up the duties and responsibilities of Seniorhood. Although these duties and responsibilities have been many, we have had much to make us happy during this last year of our college life. On the evening of October sixteenth, while Greensboro was in the midst of her glorious centennial celebration. President and Airs. Foust took the Seniors, and Marshals on a delightful car ride. Xi.t long after this, on the twenty-fifth of November, we spent a most enjoyable evening in the Curry Building, entertained by Mr. Matheson. assisted by the Faculty of the Training School. Perhaps the crowning social event of our Senior year occurred on February eighth. On that evening the Juniors took us to the Opera House to " The Man of the Hour. " When we returned to the College we were conducted to the Administration Building, where one of the recitation rooms had been trans- formed, by means of Japanese lanterns, umbrellas and potted plants. Here a three-course banquet was served by waiters in Japanese costume. But there have been other things of a less pleasant nature to till the minds of the Seniors. For examinations still had to be taken, essays had to be written, and Training School lessons had to be planned and taught. Although the Train- ing School will always be dear to the heart of each one of us, during the earlv fall our work there was placed first ujion the list of our troubles. However, the kindly encouragement and sympathy of the supervising teachers have had their eflfect and we now look forward with sadness to the time when we will no longer be Senior teachers in the Training School, as well as to the time when we will nn longer be students of the State Normal College. In three respects the Class of 1909 is different from the classes that have preceded it. This is the first Class in the history of the College to graduate with the same number of members with which it was organized. Ours is the first Class, too, to take the responsibility of publishinga college annual. But the dis- tinction of which we are justly proud is that of being the first Class to graduate under the new course of study. With our Freshman year this new course of study went into effect. The standard of the College was raised and it was decided, that beginning with the Class of 190 " ' the graduates of the College should receive a degree with their diplomas.

Dear Netjie : It is almost midnight, but I shall take time to write you ahnut tiic first day of the Class reunion. ' c arc all so sorr y that your school wnrk in the Phili]3pines prevents your cimiin ' . Wasn ' t it lovely of Jean to in ite us to her beautiful home! When 1 received her irclc s message, I -as flying through the streets of Xew ' ork on my way home from my year ' s teaching in the woods of Maine. Without delay 1 sent a message to the home folks and turned my aeroplane toward Long Island. Arriving at Jean ' s I was surprised to find a large number of my old class- mates already there. I had thought of the girls as they were when at college, and it was a shock to find how diflferent they looked. At first I felt almost among strangers, but soon became used to their changed appearance and realized that they are the same dear old girls who shared the trials and joys of college life. We could hardly wait for Cora Hart, who has the ])o ition of physical director at the College to tell us about the great work the Normal is now rloing. " I suppose, Clara, 3 ' ou teach there too, " I remarked alter she had finished, " for I know that you can ' t live without Cora. " " I did think about accepting a position there, Init decided t(j get married instead. " " What! yon married? Why I always thought you hated men anil dogs. " " So I did, but as the poet says, ' A man ' s a man for a ' that ' ; so I decided to take my chance in the matrimonial market, and I am glad that I did. " This was too much for me, and I resolved not to be shocked at anything further I might hear or see, since Clara, after all her jirotestations, had deserted the ranks of the faithful. As we were sitting in the liall a familiar voice cried, " What! are these old ladies really you? " All turned in horror to stare at the intruder. In the door- way stood a gay figure dressed in the latest and most extravagant fashion. 1909 THE CAROLINIAN 31 " Don ' t you know me? " " Paulina Hassell, " screamed Bessie. " Well, I did think Ijetter of you. " " Well, it ' s so, all the same. ISul really I hope ynu all ai)i)reeiate the pleasures I am giving up to be at this reunion. Dear me, Kate! you musn ' t tix your hair in that dowdy, old-fashioned way. Let me show you the latest style, just out; in fact, I invented it myself. And Bessie Cauble, your dress is awful, simply awful. " Bessie drew herself up to her full height, put on her glasses and glared bale- fully at tlie frivolous Paulina, who now launched forth into a recital of her numerous flirtations. " Miss Hassell, " she said coldly, " as professor of Chaldee, calculus, astron- omy and aeronautics at the World ' s I ' niversity, and as the most successful inventor of airships living, 1 think I might have the privilege of dressing to suit my own taste. " " Oh! don ' t fuss; it is disgraceful at your age, " begged Florence. " To tell the truth, neither of you is dressed artistically. Now the costume used in my Salon picture — ■ — " " Wasn ' t it called ' Inez? ' " interrupted Okla. " I saw it when I was in Europe. " " What are you doing, Okla? " I asked. " I ! Do you mean to tell me that you don ' t know I am editor of both the latest Paris Fashion and of the Literary Review? " " I have been teaching in the woods, " I suggested timidly. " Well, that accounts for it, " replied Okla, somewhat mollified. " But children, liave you all seen Jessie Smoak ' s latest poem? It is ' An Ode to a Wrenn, ' and it is one of the most touching love poems in modern literature. Thirty thousand copies of the first edition of her ' Nature Poems ' were sold in this country and Great Britain. " " Girls, come here quick! W ' ho in the world is this coming? " called Jean. All flew to the window, and saw the strangest procession we had ever seen. First walked the coachman with a cage, inside of which an angry parrot clung frantically to the bars, uttering weird maledictions up in the universe. After him came the driver with a bandbox, an old valise and a lunch basket ; then a quaint figure carrying a huge Maltese cat tenderly in her arms. " Jean, it is Lola, for she is chewing gum. " " Of course it ' s Lola, " replied that lady hotly. " Who else sliould it be? Dear Tommy is so tired from his long dusty trip. Isn ' t he a dear cat? So much nicer than men. " THE CAROLINIAN " A |)erfcct l(i -c ' . Anil now wc arc all here exeept Edna and Nettie.

" Nobody could imagine; so Jean said. " She is a nun; think of it! You can ap- preciate my feelings when J lirst saw her robed in the somber livery of the sisters, with a meek, saintly look on her face. 1 looked twice before I was sure it was Edna. " ' " Velna, how do you like being chef at the Waldorf Astoria? " " I think it fine, and am getting on niccl}. " " Isn ' t it fortunate tliat Hal is home on a vacation, or we would not have seen her. Hal. do tell us about your life in Korea. " So ffal proceeded to take up the rest of the evening with a long recital of her work as a missionary. After diimer. Claude I ' mstead, the great ])rima donna, sang a number of the arias with which she is accustomed to charm Europe. Then Elieda, better known as " Brer Rabbit, " told us some of her most famous stories. But we didn ' t realize how distinguished our Class had become, until Mary Mitchell informed us that she and Evelyn could only stay a few days, as they must return to Washington to arrange for the coming election of Tresident. " What has Evelyn to do with it? " I asked. " I am manager of Mary ' s campaign, of course, " she replied. Evelyn was always good at managing, so I feel sure that her party will win. " Girls, " cried Linda, our celebrated actress, " it is bedtime; but before we_ go, let ' s drink a toast to the continued success ni the Normal College and the dear old Class of 1909.

We do give and bequeath a small quantity of originality, with the sug- gestion that it be used at their future tree-day celebrations. Realizing that without some distinguishing mark there is always danger of one ' s being lost in a crowd, we do give and bequeath to said class this red rib- bon, which is to be worn in some conspicuous place — on the hair for instance. Item III. To the Class of 1912: (1). We do give and bequeath this heart-shaped quiver of arrows, since their arrows and hearts were spent in bringing a new tree to our campus on St. ' alentine ' s night.

Junior Class History IIREE years agu. with the imst of knowietlge seekers that September always brings to the College, came seventy-five timid girls to enter upon student life. It was not long before they were united as the Class of 1910, with green and white as colors, and the white rose as Class flower. In those early days our rose was merely a bud, vividly shaded with green, but bearing marks of unusual promise. This flower was a true symbol of our Class at the time. Its talent and strength lay unrevealed, and needed only time for its development into beauty and fragrance. In all our pro- ceedings our greenness was displayed. Often in our meetings we disregarded parliamentar - rules entirely, and did not hesitate to reconsider matters alreadv decided upon. Many and original were the opinions we gave, and lengthy our discussions of them. Our first appearance in public as Freshmen was on Thanksgiving Eve, when we planted the little Mclver Oak on the campus. This was done with such absolute secrecy that the Class won the reputation, unusual for girls, of keeping secrets implicitly. A red-letter day in our Freshman year was the one on which we were entertained by the Sophomores at a Mothei Goose party — very appropriate for us, as the higher classes said with scorn. In our studies we went to work with never failing zeal, delving dee]) into the mysteries of geometry, and struggling heroically with difficulties of Latin. The days flew by, and soon our Freshman year had passed, vacation was over, and we were back at College as Sophomores. The petals of our rosebud had now slightly unfolded, its green was of a more delicate tint, ami its real beauty began to appear. With a feeling of lordly supremacy and elation, the rose lifted high its head, looking down disdainfully upon the flowers near by. Of course, our Class had its allotted share of Sophomoric self-confidence and un- paralleled wisdom, as a token of which the Seniors presented us with a stufl ' ed owl at commencement. The birthday of our little oak was celebrated with great poiup. Dressed in kimonas, and carrying Ja])anese lanterns over our shoulders, we gathered arciund our now spreading oak and sang songs in its lionor. The THE CAROLI N IAN Japanese effect which was carried out in tiiis celebration later developed into the " general idea " which has been prominent ever since in all our festivities. We now tried our skill in the gentle art of entertaining, chiefly in honor of l- ' reshmen, and develo])ed into a brilliant company of actresses at our presentation of " Cranford. " The crowning glory of our Sophomore year was the winning of the trophy cup in the basket-ball tournament. While we entered enthusias- tically into athletics, we still retained the spirit of scholars, diligently solving the knottiest problems, and carefully concocting the most remarkable compounds in the laboratory. As our Junior days approached, our Class rose i radually opened wider and wider, the white tints became purer and purer, while it exhaled a sweeter and deeper perfume on all around. Since the days when it was a bud many petals have fallen off, but those left are growing more and more beautiful. As Juniors we are working very earnestly to shed forth the most elevating influence possible, and to make the Class of 1910 renowned. Much talent and ability is unfolding which has been hitherto undeveloped. Class love and feeling is being fostered and made stronger every day. While life has a more serious meaning, and momentous affairs weigh down upon us. the days are full of pleasures. Now every hour brings the time nearer when our rose will burst into its full beauty of Seniorhood. We hope, indeed, that our fragrance will beautifv the lives around us, and thus carrv out our motto, " Service. " THE CAROLINIAN V)1. ]. CLASS SONG Loving hearts will praise thee. Loving voices sing.

For a week those of us who had no exam- inations enjoyed the novelty of our surroundings, and then the world about us suddenly narrowed to recitation rooms, books, and chalk. The thrall of geometry was upon us, and we worked uninterrupted, principally on this subject, until November, when initiation and organizing the Class broke the monotony, if one may dare to call it that. Now society and Class meetings were to be looked forward to, and en- thusiastic groups discussed the beauty of red and white as our Class colors, and of " .Als ich kann " as our motto. With this motto before us, and geometry ruling our minds, it is scarcely remarkable that the aim of the Class became one that corresponds in a manner to a theorem of Ratio and Proportion: " The Class of 1911 shall be to its ante- cedents as most classes think they are to their antecedents. " although it was not expressed in these words. Every one, especially the antecedents, will admit that this is a hard proposition. But at any rate we began correctly, letting our Class be represented by a sturdy little water oak on the front campus. Then we con- sidered the first step in our proof, which we finally accomplished in April, 1908. We used basket-ball prowess as the standard of comparison, and in coming out second in the tournament showed that we were at least " equal to, if not greater than, " any Freshman class that had gone before us. So the first step is behind us. In September. 1908, we met again, slightly reduced in number, and spent our first week in growing accustomed to calling ourselves Sophomores, and in acquiring a small amount of dignity. That was no easy task, but by thus dis- ciplining our minds and tongues to the inevitable, we made our progress in trig. and chemistry a little easier. The routine was again practically unbroken until late in the fall, when we called attention to our little representative, the oak, celebrating its first anni- versary by a gypsy camp-meeting. This step in our proof is certainly not similar to any other in the history of the College, but we will leave it to the judgment THE CAROLI N I AN i)f tlu ' spectators as to wliethcr it was " c(|ual or L ' (|uivak ' iit to " tlic celebrations of preceding Sophomore classes. Then, knowing that we must also be " equal to any given condition, " we tried our hand at dramatic art, producing a " Comedy in Five Acts " in honor of the Freshmen. The dominant tone of this comedy was lavender and white, wliich were their class colors ; the jirevailing motive, and it succeeded very well, was to keep them guessing. Having proceeded thus far we shall continue using the method, " .-Us ich kann, " which has proved very satisfactory, and shall strive in all things to be worthy of our red and white.

These were sternly repressed, however, and we roni;h the ordeals that awaited us. Things were new and de received many a blow before we began fully to comprehend le whole school, but only a very small and verdant part of it. erence the Seniors, to admire the Juniors, and to stand in wholesome awe of the wisdom of the Sophomores. lUit every cloud has its silver lining, and ours manifested itself in a delightful and hitherto unknown form. In " cases " we found a solace for all our woes, I ' Dr two long months we remained a heterogeneous mixture of girls with int a name or a leader, but linall} ' , at a mass-meeting of the entire body, Xannie McArn was elected president and we attained the dignity of a class. New difificulties now met us in the form of ])arliamentary rules. In our eagerness to express our opinion, we all rose at once : and motions followed motions so thick and fast that we were able to keep no count of them. With experience came knowledge, and since that time the Class has been steadily lirogressing toward those luLih ideals which it has set for itself. Instead of hazing customarily indicted upon the Freshmen by the Sophomores at colleges for boys, we received tickets to " A Comedy in Five Acts, presented diplomas in oi impress! on wl teachers and We a rrivei life h.ad sadly before, s aidde charms— -a cer ])angs ot honi thoughts stra heroicalh ,■ wei strange a. nd on that we , ere i We lean led ti THE CAROLINIAN Vn by the Sophomore Company at the X ' eilchen Theater. " The X ' eilchen Theater, otherwise the dining hall, was most beautifully decorated with evergreens and violets, one-half of it being tastefully fitted up as a reception room, the other serving its original purpose. During the first act of the comedy, which was entitled " Music Hath Charms, " several exquisite vocal and instrumental selec- tions were rendered by members of the Class, together with two or three popular selections by the College Orchestra. Throughout the next act, " and thereby liangs a tale. " we were held spellbound by " Sally Ann ' s Experience, " a delightful recitation. At our places at the table besides a lovely lavender and white pen- nant, each of us found a nutshell containing a slip of paper on which was written some appro])riate rhyme. After we were seated, the President of the Sophomore Class requested us to read our sli]:)s, and then the third act. " O, wad some jjower tlie giftie gie us To see oursel ' s as ithers see us. " began. Delicious refreshments were served by waiters dressed in lavender and white, and we were bidden to " Eat. drink and be merry. " The last act was en- titled " As You Like It. " during which we did as we pleased. Some time in the " wee sma " hours " of the morning we reluctantly went home to regale our less fortunate roommates with a vivid descrijjtion of a delightful entertainment. Finally, on the night of b ' bruary L th. we jjresented our first gift to the College, a valentine. A sturdy little silver leaf maple, designed to be our repre- sentative when we ourselves shall have departed, greeted the sun on the morning of St. " alentine ' s day — and not a soul knew about it till the deed was done.

' e make no efiort to spread the peculiar doctrines of any sect, for we know that no creed ever written was ever accepted by all devout souls, and we are determined not to confound some men ' s opinions about religion with religion itself. " e believe that God has not left Himself without witnesses in any nation or in any age of mankind, and that the pure in heart have always, in some sense, seen Him. But since no conception of the character of God and of man ' s rela- tionship to Him is so noble as that given to the world by Jesus of Nazareth, we will call none but Christ our Master. In so far as we comprehend and exalt Hi- teachings, in so far as our lives ajjpro.ximate His, we are accomplishing our purpose. For us, Christianity is Christ. For us, a Christian is one who gives himself to humanity in the spirit of Christ.

TIktc were so main- weightier matters in the mimis of all, that athletics was for a time a matter of minor importance. Some of those more interested did, however, make attempts, but these amounted to but little. All their efforts towards physical culture were enclosed within the walls of one small room. There they wrestled with the pole and dumbbells, while " all-out-doors " remained unnoticed. The Class of 1900 took the forward ste]). They realized that physical training was as important a feature of their college life as their mental training; and so they organized an Athletic Associa- tion. The object of this association was to promote the interest of athletics in the College, and to provide means whereby every student might take an active part. Though they made but a beginning, they set an example which has been bravely followed. It was this same class that presented a trophy cup to the .Association, which was to be given each year to the champion team. Thus they increased the interest in athletics, which has steadily grown until today every girl in our College takes an active part in the outdoor games. Each class has its basket-ball and its tennis team, and " these meet in a tournament every spring to con.i|)ete for the trophy cup. The present year has been one of the most eventful in the history of the association. Xot only has the membership been larger than it has been in any former year, but throughout the College. " Athletic .S])irit ' " has been at a greater height than ever before. Hockey has been introduced into our College for the first time, and the classes are becoming interested in it, and are beginning to organize teams. The recent gymnastic contest and the camp sup- pers, a most attractive feature of the association, have also brought it into promi- nence, and bi l fair to gain for us many members, and a decided rise in " Athletic Spirit. " The attention of all the classes is now being turned to " Field Day, " which will be some time in April. Already the classes are practicing for the hundred- yard dash, the long run, and the high jump. As an incentive, a beautiful athletic banner will be given as a prize to the class which proves itself first in athletics.

Those days to a " greenie " one ' s heart so dear? When I stared at the buildings in stupid surprise, And wondered at Spencer ' s tremendous size, And grew tired and sore from just walking around, Upstairs and through endless halls, over the ground ? Ah, yes, that I will! Remember the nights when I lay on my bed And wept homesick tears, with a hot, aching head ? And the days when I looked at the girls in despair Of finding, ' mong strangers, familiar ones there? When I envied the old girls who seemed so at ease In this huge, busy place, like a hive full of bees? Ah, yes, that I will! Remember the days when I trembled to think What would happen to me, when I stood on the brink Of that awful event that scared others as well, Initiation? When I ached just to tell What had happened to some one, and when we would gather We new girls, and talk it all over together? Ah, yes, that I will ! Remember the early-roused terror for facing A teacher who " sawed, " my scorn, too, for casing. And straight way my fall ' fore the charms of another. My worship afar, how I wrote to my mother To tell her about it, though she could not know Half the sweetness such madness brings, no, oh, no? Ah, yes, that I will I THE CAROLINIAN 5ocial Events ments, i having evening of October 2d, the Social Committee of the Y. VV. . entertained the Faculty and students in the gymnasium. ;is a pleasant min gling of the new and the old students. The room was lighted with Japanese lanterns and artistically decorated with screens, rugs, sofa pillows and potted plants. In the corners of the room were three dimly-lighted booths 1 sat dark-haired gypsies, who revealed to those desiring informa- nnderful mvsteries as to the future. Music was furnished by Miss ; piano and Miss Moring at the graphophone. Delightful refresh- ting of cream and cake, were served, after which the guests departed, a most pleasant evening with the Social Committee. On the afternoon oi ( )ctober 7th, Mr. James Young came out to the College and gave a very interesting lecture on Mamlet. The same evening the Senior and Juniors were allowed t ' : attend the I ' lay, " Brown of Harvard. " in which Mr. Young took the leading part. Since then the seniors have been singing, " When Love is Young in S|)ringtime, " to their freshman friends ; so we know they still remember j Ir. Young. On October 14th we had a holiday to take part in the exercises of Educational Day of the Greensboro Centennial Week. The pupils of the schools and colleges of Guilford County gathered upon the campus of Greensboro Female College. Shortly after ten o ' clock the educational parade began to march from here, passing along W ' est Market Street to Court Square, thence down South Elm to W ' ashington, thence along East Washington and Forbis Streets to the audito- rium. It is said by those who savv this procession of more than seven thousand girls and boys that they had never witnessed a more inspiring spectacle anywhere. The line of march was led by the students of Greensboro Female College, wear- ing white dresses and white hats with light green bands ; next came the students of the State Normal College dressed in pure white and wearing tiny North Caro- lina flags; these were followed by the graded and public schools of Guilforrl THE CAROLINIAN Count ■. At the audito a most niai ' nitk-cnt acl( in, the centennial On (Jctiiber 14tli vc were made ha]ipv by the annonncement that nn W ' echK " - clay we would l)e allnwed to go to the Fair. With Hying colors we reached the Fair grounds ahont noun. For the rest of the day we threw " come back " balls and confetti, rode on the nierry-go-ronnd and Ferris wheel, listened with thrilling hearts to the revealing of the mysteries of the future by the fortune-teller, and admired the exhibits to our hearts ' content. Many are lamenting the fact thai " Fair Day " does not come oftener. On Tuesday night, October 15th, from eight to ten o ' clock, our Faculty and students were at home to their Greensboro friends and their friends from abroad. The lain Ikiilding, Student ' s Building, Library and the new Mclver Memorial Building were thrown open to the guests. The main receiving party was sta- tioned in the parlor, and along the halls were groups of receivers, who ushered the guests into the dining-room, where light refreshments were served. During the reception Professor Brockmanii ' s College Orchestra rendered some very beau- tiful selections, which added to the joy of the occasion. On the evening of October l()th, Mr. Foust took the Seniors and Marshals on a delightful car ride to see the illuminations of the city. During the ride, songs of such an irresistible nature were sung that all joined in, whether they could carry tlie tune or not. Every one enjoyed the ride immensely and many thanks are due to Mr. Foust for a very pleasant evening. The students and friends of the College were delightfully entertained on the evening of November 23d, in the College auditorium, with an interpretation of " Richard III, " rendered most ably by the noted dean of the Emerson School of Oratory, Henry Lawrence Southwiok. Mr. Matheson entertained the Seniors in the Curry Building on the evening of November 25th. They were received in the teachers ' reading room by Mr. Matheson and Misses Michaux, Fitzgerald and Xash. After a few minutes of pleasant conversation, they were led into Mr. Matheson ' s room, which was taste- fully decorated in blue and white, the class ct)lors. Mere a delightful repast was served them, consisting of (|uail on toast, beaten biscuits, pickles, celerv, coffee. THE CAROLINIAN Afterwards chafing dishes were brought in and tliose skilled in the art of candy making, made fudge, while others played and sang; all had a jolly good time. The guests departed at half-past ten, having spent a very pleasant evening with the Training School Faculty. I ' he jjresentation of " Midsummer Night ' s Dream " by the Cornelian Literary Society in the college auditorium to a large crowd of Greensboro people, Friday evening, Decemlier 4th. was tlie most delightful and thoroughly enjoyable enter- tainment that lui-; been gi Ln at our College for many years. Mendelssohn ' .-; music. coniiKised especially for " Midsummer Night ' s Dream, " w-as beautifnllv rendered by the College Orchestra. Altogether the entertainment was thoroughly delightful and one of which the College is proud. The hard-handed and thick- skulled men of Athens deserve s])ecial mention for their success as actors. Mary ' rin Poole, in the character of Xick r..itt(ini, the weaver, was the hit of the evening and ke])t the audience in a constant uin ' oar. THE CAROLINIAN The Adelphian Initiation " 77;,- ( (lYi ' sl. iiwrncst. iiunli rsl iiii lil In all the icIioU- scIuhiI year. " i X the evening of ( )ctober 2yth, the Aclel]ihians held their Initiation exercises for the year 1908 in their Society Hall. Long before the great event, strange and mysterious rumors had reached the ears of the prospective members. At the dreaded time when the massive doors opened to receive them, they approached the un- known realm in trembling awe and expectation. The social part of the evening ' s program consisted of a banquet given in the college dining hall. The decorations were strictly Adeljjhian — red and gold chrysantlK■nnlnl■ adnnied the tables, which were arranged in the shape of the Adelphian pin, while a stately bank of graceful palms and ferns marked th.? center of the rocMU. At each plate was the souvenir of the occasion, a green leather card-case with the Adelphian pin stani])ed nn it. lletween the courses, music was furnished by Hrockmann ' s Orchestra. . fter the bancpiet. all eyes turned toward the rustic stage in the rear of the room. There, under the shade of cool pines, beneath the peaceful light of an imaginary moon, the following scenes from the Merchant of ' enice were pre- sented ; Scene I — Belmont. Portia ' s home. ScE.XE II — . street in enice. Scene III— Belmont. Scene IV — A terrace at Belmont. The program was well carried out and pmved very enjoyable. Lancelot Gobbo kept the audience laughing by his antics, lierr Roy rendered Schubert ' s Serenade on his viulin during the moonlight scene and as the audience listened to this artist, they agreed with Shakespeare when he said: " 77(1 ' man tliat hath no music in Iiinisclf. Nor is not morcd loith concord of sz ' cct sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratcgcnis. and spoils. The motions of his spirit are as dull as night. His affections dark as Erebus, Let no sucli man be trusted. " THE CAROLINIAN Cornelian Initiation Banquet E Sixteenth Annual Initiation of the Cornehan Literary Society took place on the evening of October 31st, 1908. After one hundred and forty-five girls had been given a ride on the Cor- nelian goat, and had been carried by him into the mystic realms of the Unknown, as new Cornelians, they were royally enter- tained at a banquet given in their honor by the old members of the Society. The scene of the banquet was the dining hall of the College, but a dining hall greatly changed from its ordinary appearance. It had been decorated with palms, ferns and chrysanthemums, and the tables were not in their usual orderly rows, but were arranged in the form of a Maltese Cross. A bank of palms and potted plants formed the center of the cross, and trailing smilax entwined the can- delabra on the tables. Covers were spread for three hundred and sixty guests, including the Faculty, visiting Adelphians, and former Cornelians. The menu cards in pale blue and gold, were artistically decorated with an embossed design of the Society pin, and tlie souvenirs were silver hat pins engraved with the monogram C. L. S. During the four-course dinner, music was furnished by Brockmann ' s Orches- tra, and between the courses toasts were given. Miss Elizabeth Robinson, the toast mistress of the evening, announced the toasts as follows : To the New Members Miss Nannie McArn Res])onse Miss Kathleen Long To the X ' isitors Miss Annie Martin Response Mrs. Moulton Avery To the I- " aculty Miss Jessie Ernhardt Response Miss Viola Boddic To the Adelphians Miss Belle Andrews Res]ionse Miss Hal Morrison To the Old Cornelians Miss Edith Latham m Response Miss Eleanor Elliot V To the College Miss Margaret B. Cobb THE C AROLIN IAN The Sophomore Lntertainment :HE first public pc-rfonnance of the Sophomore Company was given at the Wilchen Theater, otherwise the dining.-room of the Spencer iluilcHng. on February 6th, 1909, in honor of tho Freshman Class. The " Comedy in Five Acts " as well as the theater, had caused much speculation among the audience to be, some thinking tliat the entertainment would consist of a visit to the Lyric. It is to be hoped that they were agreeaby disappointed. The theater was divided into two parts by an improvised wall, adorned with vines, on which, strange to say, violet ' s blossomed in great profusion, in honor of their patrons, the Freshmen. The audience was received in the first division of the theater, which was furnished as a sitting room, and there heard the first two acts, together with selections by the College Orchestra during tlie inter- missions. The last three acts were g iven in the dining salon, which was deco- rated in the P ' " reshman colors with violets, real and otherwise, potted plants, and souvenir 1912 pennants. The revcalers of self, as " others see us, " were concealed in walnut shells that served as ])lace cards, and contained some personal and niimh provdkiiiL; linierick for each . uest. The refreshments carried out as far as possible the kuender and white scheme, and were served by Sophomores attired ni lavender and white. Act five was, in reality, " As You Like It. " the guests lor the most part spending it in laughing over some particularly good limerick, and in the novel experience of gathering violets from vines. The program was announced by the stage manager, C. Jones, as follows : Act I — " Music liatli cliarnis. " ScicNE 1 — Orchestra selection. ScENr. II — Quartette, " Come anil m ircli for N ' iolols. " Scene III — Piano solo. Scene IV — Piano solo. Act II — " And thereby hangs a tale. " (A recitation — " Sally Ann ' s Experience.

As yet they knew not what fate awaited them but they were not kept in suspense vere soon led to the car line. hen the cars stopped at the ( Jjiera vas not a doubt in the minds of any of them but that they were to see " The Man of the Hour. " After the play they were brought back to the main Ijuild- ing. Here they were conducted into one of the recitation rooms which had been transformed liv means of Japanese decorations into " a thing of Jieauty.

Chorus: THE CAROLINIAN Tree Day — Class of 1911 ' vIDAY evening, November 19th, for the first time since the planting of their Class tree, the Sophomores met together to celebrate its anniversary. At eight o ' clock the Faculty and students gathered on the grass in front of the main building to view the exercises in honor of the tree ' s first birthday. Expectantly the crowd waited in the flickering light of a great camp-fire. A faint call was heard. Gradually it grew clearer and stronger. Then from every direction gypsies, in fantastic costumes, appeared and gathered around the fire and tree. Then in two magic rings, one within the other, the gypsies danced. Aher the dance they all chanted, Gypsy Qufcii, the ' watcli is set; Quickly come zee all are met. Oho-o, Oho-o Oho! . oiiii the C|ueen carrying the Class banner appeared with her attendants, where- upon the dance was renewed for joy at her arrival. She welcomed the spectators and told them the story of the little oak, comparing its growth with that of the Class. Then the g) ' psies. with hands upraised, asked a blessing upon their tree. The outer circle grouped themselves and sang the Class day song to the time of which the inner circle danced with tambourines. The Class song was sung and the yell given. Then as silently as they had come, the dancers slipped away into the darkness. THE CAROLI N IAN CLASS SONG Our hearts leap up when we behold The symbol of our Class, the oak; Nor us nor it will daunt the cold Of ill success of fortune ' s stroke. But we shall make our lives to be As strong and stalwart as our tree. Refrain: Tho ' Nineteen Eleven come and go, Our lives through will be, " Als ich Kann. ' While we are yet both young and strong. And on our paths are strewn along Our golden opportunities. May we make life a perfect song; May we send out a ray of light To other lives that are not bright.

PEABODY PARK 1009 THE CAROLINIAN Aunt Ldith ' s 5tory was the middle of September, ami JJelen Miller was busy with her prei)aratioiis for going off to school. Pretty garments, pic- tures, toilet articles, and all the dainty, schoolgirl accessories were scattered about the room. Helen stood by the window and sighed as she thought of leaving home and living, for the first time, in a boarding school. She heard a light step behind her and turning, saw her aunt Edith, a sweet, patient little woman, whose calm eyes were unflimmed. Init whose hair was whitened by time. " Oh. Aunt Edith. " cried Helen. " I am so glad to see you! I was lonesome and almost ready to cry. " " I have come for a farewell chat, dear, " said the bright old lady. Then she led the way to a big rocking chair, while Helen curled up on a low stool and laid her head on her aunt ' s lap. " As I think of the new problems with which you will have to deal, " began Aunt Edith. " I am reminded of an event in my own school life. This incident, which occurred in the latter part of my freshman year, had a deep influence on my succeeding stay in college, and left a lasting impression on my life. I am going to tell you this much of my history and urge you to say nothing which could in any way injure the feelings of another. " The school which I attended was a fashionable boarding school of that day. Much emphasis was laid on the social development of the students, and everything was arranged with a view to their enjoyment as well as their intellectual improve- ment. I was very pleasantly situated. A bright, lively girl from Kentucky shared my rooms. We loved each other dearly, although we were in some respects very different. Her name was Celia Williams, and I often familiarly called her ' Ceely. ' Instead of one room, we had two small apartments opening into each other. One of these we used as a bedroom ; the other as a sitting room and study. " Aside from the social features of the school, one of the most important things 150 THE CAROLINIAN nl. I. was tlu ' work of llic twd litrrary societies. They were not, as the niiidern secret sorority, organizations to which only a chosen few could belong, but were open to all, and had no secrets. The work of these societies attained a high degree of literary merit, partly through the spirit of rivalry existing between the two, and partly from the fact that the facult - and student body, and sometimes the public generally, were allowed to attend the literary exercises. Xaturally, the com- mittee which arranged the programs had arduous duties, and was considered very imijortant. This committee in each society consisted of three members. One girl from each society was nominated by her class, near the close of her Freshman year. ' l " he society usually acccjited the nomination of the class, and the nieiubers held their places three years. It was considered a high tril)ute to one ' s literary ability to be chosen to serve on this committee. " All during our first years we were thinking of the coming election. Each girl taxed her skill in the use of her language, and studied literature with a zeal that is rarely e(|ualed. Meiul)ers of the higher classes were not slow to suggest girls, who, in their opinion, could be trusted with the reputation of her society. Most of these suggestions pointed to my ro ommate as the one most likely to receive the nomination. And, indeed, no one in the class was better qualified to hold the position. She was a girl of unusual talent, and the field in which she was espec- ially gifted was English. She also had a remarkable capacity for knowing girls, and giving to each the work best suited to her ability. " Besides all the. e (|ualities. she was very popular. She had been elected presi-. dent of her own cla s liy a large majority, and her friendship was sought by all. She was exceeding!}- cniertaining and pleasant to every one, but to me she gave her closest friendship, her most entire confidence, ' e lived together as dear sisters. She was gay, beautiful, popular; I was less attractive, but more studious. We were happy, but my great sensitiveness would not allow these i)leasant rela- tions to go on undisturbed. " It was just before the spring election. L ' elia had been busy for days, walk- ing, singing, and dancing with girls for whom she had formerly shown little re.gard. She had given many car rides and afternoon teas. 1 had lieen unwell for some time, and had kept very closely in my room when not on recitation. But I heard that Celia would doubtless accomplish her purpose. I was surprised that she should work to secure her own nomination, and resented her apparent forgetfulness of me. J confess that I, too. was ambitious, and while I would scorn to mention the fact to any one, I secretly desired the position on the hon- ored committee. THE CAROLINIAN •■TliL ' clay fur the class uieetiiif;- came, and 1 was too weak tu atleiid. Celia Wduiuled 111}- feelinjj;s by nut seeming to care if I were tou unwell tu go out. I (lid nut under tand her reason for desiring my absence from the election. When the meeting was uver I ' elia, with face aglow, ran into the room where I sat. ' ■ ' Oh, Edith, ' she cried, as she threw her arms around me, ' I am so happy. ' " I was feeling keenly the fact that she seemed indifferent to me, and her love, which had become dearer to me than almost anything else, had grown cold. I replied, witlmnt thinking how deeply my words might wound her kind heart. " ' Well, since }nu are elected, perha])s you can give a little time to your roommate. ' " I shall never forget the pained expression that came into her lovely face. The moment the cruel words escaped my lips, I would have given worlds to recall them. How nuich sutTering they caused us both ! Celia walked to the window and stood silent a long time. I was longing to throw my arms around her and beg forgiveness, but my pride would not allow me to ask her pardon, and she seemed scarcely warmer than an iceberg. Finally she turned and said : " ' Some girls are coming to our room just after tea, and they will expect to see you. Do you feel strong enough to dress ? ' " I shook my head, ' I wish to see no one. ' " ' But dear, the girls are coming especially to see you. Come, let me help you to put on that sweet white dress. ' " Celia had a strong personality, and a will which 1 did not try to resist. I yielded, and with motherly tenderness she arrangetl my toilet, but her face was clouded, and her manner was old — so old ! I did not know why she insisted on my wearing the class flowers and carnations. I was fair and the flowers would have been much more becoming to her dark beauty. " I did not go down to tea, but put our little sitting room in order, and got ready for our visitors. I expected congratulations to be heaped upon Celia, and congratulations were oiTered, but they were all for me. " ' You are such a quiet little mousey that we should never have known you but for Celia, ' said one girl, as she gave me a gentle shake. " ' M:y didn ' t you let us know your genius, ' said another. " Gradually I understood that my dear, unselfish Celia had been working for my nomination, not hers. What must she think of my ingratitude! The thought of the injustice I had done her nearly crushed me. I could scarcely be polite to our friends. I truthfully said that I was surprised, and that Celia should have been elected. Celia was profuse in her expressions of satisfaction, and declared THE CAROLINIAN pn lUit hat a gulf had npcncd )Ut 1 felt that the honnr have given it up for one hour of .s always polite and kind, but her saw that no a])ology on my jiart " I took up my new duties determined to do them was the price of a friend, and 1 would gladly have the sweet friendship I had forfeited. C generous nature was cut to the ipiick. could have any effect on her. " The next year we still roomed together, but our love seemed crushed. About the middle of our Sophomore year I had a long attack of illness. The physicians said that it was bronght on liy over-work, but I knew that the chief cause was trouble over a lost friend. ( )ne evening I was lying alone in our little inner room, when (, ' elia came in with a tender ex])ression on her face. She laid her head close to mine, and murmured. ' My own darling. ' At that moment each felt ' that she forgave and was forgi ' en. " At the next society meeting I resigned my position, assigning as the reason the |)oor condition of my health, and named Celia as my successor. She was as much surjirised as I was the year before, but we w ' ere both happy. Thoughtless words had caused us both much pain. Init we forgot our sorrows in the sw eetness of a reconciliation. " So you see. my dear Helen, why one should be careful of one ' s words. " And as they sat watching the glowing eml)crs. Helen thought she knew why Aunt Edith ' s life was sweet and kind.

Elizabeth W. Hicks, THE CAROLINIAN The Power of Music has not betn very long since the wooded sections of eastern North Carohna were infested with wolves, bears, and panthers. ( )iir grandmothers well remember the times when the farmers ' pigs and sheep were stolen by bears and wolves. The howling of a pack of wolves was nothing unusual at night. Panthers were often bold enough to creep along the " fence locks " in the day time. It was a chilly night in October, 1853. Calvin Bond and Meta Hartsfield started on their way to a party at a neighbor ' s house, a few miles away. All of the horses had been taken by Calvin ' s older brothers ; so only the ox and the cart were left for Calvin and i Ieta. But, nevertheless, they thought it tine fun to drive the ox. Calvin took his violin, a present from his grandfather, and they both started, full of joy in the anticipated pleasure of the party. As they slowly rode along, chatting gaily, they came tn an nld, djien field. They were urging the o.x to go faster over the level surface of the field, when suddenly they were startled by the howling of wolves. They drove faster. But the howling sounded nearer and nearer every minute. They knew by the continued howling that the wolves were hungry. I ' hen. for the first time, Calvin remembered that he had forgotten to bring a weapon of any kind, save the large pocket knife, which he always carried. But what could he do with that to check the attack of, perhaps, twenty wolves? It was useless to think of reaching a place of safety with only an ox to carry them. Suddenly a thought came to Calvin. They would seek refuge in a little, deserted log cabin, near the edge of the field. They left the cart and hurried into the cabin. By using an old block, which had been left inside, they climbed to the low log rafters. By this time the wolves were ujjon them. There were more than a dozen in the pack. They scrambled and ran wildly around the little room, until they scented the spot, where the pursued sat, almost breathless with terror. The wolves began yelping and howling more wildly than ever, as they jumped up and down, trying to reach the two above them. All at once the leader of the pack jumped upon the block. It now seemed to Calvin and Meta that no earthly help 158 THE CAROLINIAN nl. 1. was near. I ' .otli were silentl_ ])raying tliat God woulil spare their lives. What could they do? All at once Calvin realized that he was clenching his violin in his hands. " Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast, " came to him like a flash. He did not stop to wonder if there were more poetry than truth in the verse. He madly drew the bow across the strings of his little violin. All the music in his soul was now put into his effort to play. The music worked like magic. The yelping ceased ; the wolves became quiet. By a streak of moonlight, coming in through a crevice in the wall, they saw the red, gleaming eyes of the wolves follow his hand, as it drew the bow across the strings. He played, until his muscles grew tense and his arm was almost paralyzed. He stopped to rest. The wolves now became more fierce than before. The snarling, growling, howling, and yelping was maddening. The music could not be stoppefl. Meta began to sing in her high, clear tones. Again the wolves were silenced, but not so completely as by the music of the violin. So Ijy turns, the playing and singing continued. Meanwhile the guests at the ]5arty had returned to their homes, wontlering why Calvin and Meta had not gone to the party. ' lien Calvin ' s brothers and sisters reached home, they found the ox and cart standing at the gate of the barn yard. They became alarmed, when they learned that Calvin and Meta had not been seen by those who remained at home. A party, armed with various weapons, started out to search for them. About two o ' clock in the morning the party heard the faint sound of a violin in the distance. They were so surprised that they went in the direction of the sound. They were almost afraid to enter the cabin, when they reached it. It seemed so strange to hear music in a deserted house in the middle of the night. On reaching the door and looking in, they were very much surprised to see a pack of wolves in the middle of the floor, listening to music from above. Their surprise was much greater, when thev saw Calvin and Meta, sitting on the rafters, and entertaining wolves with their music. Today the granddaughter of Calvin Bond and Meta Hartsfield keeps a violin, wrapped in a silken scarf, in an old cedar chest. They are both kept as sacred relics, because the violin saved the lives of her grandparents, and the scarf was worn by her grandmother on the night of the adventure with the wolves. Nat.

(VCOXNOR, attorney at law, leaned back in hi.s chair, gazeil Hrst at the ceiling, then around at the unplastered walls of his narrow, dingy office, and then at the ceiling again. His face wore an expression of deep anxiety, of almost utter hopelessness. He arose presently from his chair, walked about the room a few minutes, and paused in front of the one window, and looked out. Jt was a gusty March afternoon, and the wind drove a cloud of dust down the street. Turning to his chair again, he sat down with a great sigh, and reflected. Tomorrow would be his wedding anniversary — his and Lucile ' s. Tomorrow they would have been married ten years. Heretofore, they Iiad celebrated each year the glad event in some quiet, happy way. But as the years passeil, the celebration had grown simpler and less expensive. He remembered that when thev were married five years, he had sent her a bunch of American Beauties, and on his card he had w ' ritten these words : " My sweetheart five years ago ; my sweetheart today. " She was still his sweetheart, but — O ' Connor reached for his pocket-book, opened it, and shook its contents out on his desk. Before him lay a half-dollar, a much-worn dime, and three pennies — that was all. He took out his bank-book. The account was balanced — nothing to his credit. " Married ten years tomorrow, " mused O ' Conner, " been a licensed lawyer ten years, and it has come to this. " O ' Connor recalled the fact that his mother used to say to him that if a man had not started on the road to success five years after his wedding day, his situa- tion was serious ; and if he had not made a success of life in ten years, he would never reach his goal. There was only one more day of grace ! With another sigh, O ' Connor began to open the letters on his desk. " State- ments, bills, duns, " he groaned, " there has been nothing else for months. " The first envelope contained a grocer ' s bill, and across the bottom of the sheet were these words : " Unless you settle this account at once, no further credit will be extended. " A clothing house reminded him that if a check were not received within the next ten days, his account would be ])laced in the hands of an attorney. Another firm even more urgent, stated that a representative would call upon him THE CAROLINIAN the next dav, and that fnrther refusal oi pa ' ment wd uM lie ccm-iilered sufficient grounds fur legal action. These were only a few of many similar claims. He had borrowed from his friends, too. and failed to repay, until they shunned him. And Lucile! The thought of her almost maddened him. She was always patient and encouraging; but he had never forgotten the agony in her face when a few years ago they mortgaged their little home. At the thought of this, he put his hand to his forehead. The mortgage ! Opening a drawer in his desk, he drew out some papers. The interest and the principal would be due in just twenty days ! Ruin could not be far off. The beginning of O ' Connor ' s career had been full of promise. He remem- bered the time when he occupied a large front office in this building, instead of the small unfinished room, then used for the janitor ' s supplies. But he had made unwise investments, and lost. He tried to recover his losses, but was unsuccess- ful again. Sickness, the result of anxiety, followed : and one by one. through the years, his clients deserted him. His acquaintances spoke of him as a man ' of splendid ability, who had met with hard luck. The) ' were right. O ' Connor continued to think of his wife. If she had only chosen Cardwell. how different her life would have been! The two men had been friends, both had loved Lucile, and their rivalry was of a friendly sort; When she made her choice, Cardwell went away, applied himself to business, and succeeded. " Oh, if Lucile had only chosen Cardwell! " he said. He was growing desperate. He walked out of hi- office, and pacetl the long hall of the building. On the right, the firm of Ward Ward, the most prominent lawyers in Wallburg, occupied a magnificent suite of rooms. He knew that both men were out of the city. The janitor, in putting the rooms in order, had care- lessly left the door of the private office open. O ' Connor paused, and looked in. It was after five, and the stenographer had gone home. He stood there, impressed with the elegance of the furnishings of the room, and with the unmistakable air of prosperity that pervaded it. The next minute he was standing again in his own bare office, looking out through the dusty window ' -panes. He gave an exclamation of surprise, and looked again. Whom did he see crossing the street? Who, but Xorman Cardwell. and he was walking rapidly toward the building. O ' Connor was almost stunned. " Cardwell must be coming to see me, " he thought, " and to find me in this hole ! I can not allow that. I will leave! But, no! " — he clutchetl at the thought as a dying man clutches at a 1909 THE CAROLINIAN lh3 straw — " iicrhaps Canhvcll ' s visit is for something else Ix-siik-s the renewal of our oUl friendship. Can it be possible? " IJe looked about bini in desperation. " If Cardwell finds me in a place like thi.s — what shall I do? " And then, oh, blessed inspiration! the thought of the open door and of the private office of Ward Ward darted into his mind. " Why can I not carry Cardwell in there? " he said. " Cardwell is a stranger in the city. He will never know. " O ' Connor knew it would be a bold stroke, a dangerous stroke, but he was in no mood to think of consequences. He thought only of his present need, and the possibility of relief. Hurrying up the long hall he glanced into the office again. There was nothing about it to indicate who the real occupants were. This was the private office of the firm, and there was no lettering on either the door or the windows. Only a few niiiuites had elapsed since O ' Connor first saw Cardwell crossing tlic street, but it seemed an hour. Hearing footsteps coming up the stairs, he seized his hat and coat, as if he were going out, and met Cardwell ju.st as he appearetl at the head of the stairs. There was an expression of surprise and ]5leasure on the part of both. O ' Connor insisted upon taking him up to his office. Throwing open the door of Messrs. Ward Ward ' s private office, he ushered his vi itor in. Cardwell looked about him somewhat surprised. He had not expected to see such evidences of prosperity. " ' ell, how has life gone with you during these years, O ' Connor? " he asked. " These are strenuous times, old man, " replied O ' Connor. " When a man has brains and will work, he usually finds the world a busy place. Cardwell nodded. Evidently O ' Connor was a busy man. Thr ough an open door which led into another of the offices, he saw the typewriter on the desk " ( ) ' Cnnnor nuisl be getting on in the world if he can employ a stenographer, " he thought. Following the gaze of his visitor O ' Connor was saying: " I had just started out as you came in. My stenographer went home at five. I have never believed in long hours, li you require only reasonable hours and ay an employe well, the results will usually be more satisfactory. Seventy-five dollars is none too much, especially when the cases in court have to be reported. " O ' Connor watched his visitor with an anxious heart. The absurdness, as well as the dishonest}- of the situation began to dawn upon him. " Suppose Cardwell should be in town for several days and should wish to come to see me again ! " he was saying to himself. " But because of I ucile I must make an impression, I must keei up appearances. " THE CAROLINIAN L ' ardwc ' U was much inipresseil. " ( ) ' C(ni!inr must be gettinj; i lu in the wurlil " he thought. The two men talked for a tew minutes as old acquaintances will. O ' Connor was becoming more desperate every minute. Presently he said: " You must certainh- dine with me at the Richmond. I ' d be delighted to take you to my home, but Mrs. O ' Connor — she — the servants left without warning: but I ' ll ' phone her to join us. " O ' Connor felt his hair turning gray at the mere thought of an acceptance. But Cardwell declined, saying that he wished to return to Xew York on the 6:45 train. It was then 5:30. Cardwell was thinking rajiidl} ' . i fe had come to W ' allburg in the interest of a transaction which wt.)uld yield him thcmsands of dollars. He had expected to ]mt the matter in the hands of Ward Ward, but learning that they were absent from the city, he decided to hunt up O ' Connor and have a talk with him ana renew their old-time friendship. His old friend seemed to be making unusual success. Aloud he said: " I came down to attend to some business. O ' Connor and need an attorney to take charge of it for me. I can lay the whole matter before you within an hour, if you think you can arrange to handle it. You will probably be employed for si.x months, and I ' d like to have a man of just your ability to do the work. Do you think you can arrange it? " O ' Connor waited a minute, and then replied, " I think that I can. " Norman Cardwell had hardly reached the street after leaving his friend before he was startled to hear his name called. Looking back, he saw O ' Connor coming towards him, pale and agitated. The realization of what he had done — the dishonesty of it, the shame of the dece])tion, the scorn with which he knew his wife would hear of the act — swept over O ' Connor in a flash the minute his client left the room. This was the first dishonest thing he had ever done. He would not begin to be dishonest now — no, not if his mother ' s prophecy were fulfilled a thousand times. Without an instant ' s hesitation, he hurried after Cardwell to make confession, to sever the connection that was to have meant success, and — to win Lucile ' s approval. When Cardwell had listened in amazed incredulity to the whole story, he stood thinking for a minute, and then said : " Here, O ' Connor, let me give you a check for one hundred dollars in advance. " Then he added, " For your wife ' s sake, too, we will continue our present business relations. " The next day, Mr. and Mrs. Robert D. O ' Connor celebrated the happiest of all their wedding anniversaries. Clara B. Bvrd, ' 11. SPENCER BUILDING. MAIN DORMITORY THE CAROLINIAN A Revolutionary Heroine RS. BELL was a very encr X ' tK-. keen-witted woman, wlio suc- ceeded where a hundred others would have failed. Her hus- hand, like most of the other men of the neighborhood, had joined the Patriot Army and marched away to fight the redcoats. Thus the wife, with four small children and two faithful negroes, Uncle Ben and Aunt Betsey, was left to manage the little farm. For a while, everything had gone very well : the seat of war was far away in the North, and after the excitement of Lexington had died away, the people of the country districts in central Carolina had to a great extent resumed the " even tenor of their way. " But later, the war had been transferred to the South, and the raids of the Tory bands had begun. The hatred between Whig and Tory had so increased from day to day that the farm of no patriot was safe from attack. All the neighbors were in constant dread of the Tories, and ] Irs. P eirs two slaves were often very much frightened, especially when they heard of a barn-, burning, robbery, or other depredation ; but she herself went about her daily tasks as usual, and did not seem in the least apprehensive of trouble. Late one afternoon, Mrs. Bell was engaged in preparing some of the coarse food she had for the evening meal. Aunt Betsey was milking, and Uncle Ben. doing chores. Suddenly horses ' feet were heard along the road, and the next moment Uncle Ben rushed into the house yelling, " O Missey, dey ' s come. dey " s come ! " " Who have come? " coolly inquired ] Irs. Bell. L ' ncle Ben was so fright- ened he could not answer intelligibly; but Aunt Betsey, bursting wildly in after him, managed to scream, " De Tories ! de Tories ! dey ' ll murder us. " In a few minutes, seven or eight men rode up to the front gate, dismounted, hitched their horses, marched up to the house and into the kitchen without waiting for an invitation. The leader greeted Mrs. Bell with, " Now my good dame, we want a good hot supper, and that quick. Give us a plenty of broiled chicken, ham, and such other viands as you, of course, have in store. " " If you get broiled chicken, vou will have to call at some farm-house from which you have not 1909 THE CAROLINIAN iu already stolen all the chickens, " retorted Mrs. Ijell. The men laughed loudly at this and began to search the house for something they might plunder and carry away. For sometime, they found nothing of sufficient value to tempt them, though they went all through the house scattering bed-clothing, over-turning fur- niture, and making the house look as if a cyclone had swept through it. As two of the men were passing through the narrow hall, they spied a trap door in the center of the floor, which was immediately pried up. One of the men then descended into the cellar and began to make investigations. The only thing found which he cared to take was a bundle of woolen yarn, which Mrs. Bell had spun and hung in a corner. This the fellow seized, and with it in his hand, started up the step-ladder. By this time, Mrs. Bell had discovered what was going on, and quietly walked into the hall. She had in her hand a long wooden paddle with which she had been stirring a kettle of Indian meal mush. Advancing to the opening in the floor, and looking at the man coming up the ladder, she coolly remarked, " That thread is to make clothing for my children, and you shall not come out of there with it. " All the men jeered, and the fellow carrying the yarn advanced up the ladder. Mrs. Bell said no more but reached down and struck the man on the side of the face with the paddle all smeared with the boiling-hot mush. Xow, hot mush is a terrible thing to en- counter ; and for a moment, the man drew back. But those on the floor laughed and called him a coward. Again, he started up the ladder ; and again, the brave woman struck him with the hot mush paddle. This was repeated several times, until finally the man dropped the yarn vowing vengeance on the woman. " You will not hurt me, " she said fearlessly. When the angry fellow reached the floor, he would have endeavored to execute his threats, had not the Tory leader declared that the woman had entertained him so well she should not be punished. " Come, " said the leader, looking at the fellow who had encountered Mrs. Bell ' . ' , paddle and was still wiping mush from his face, " I know ou have had enough here ; we will ride on. " The whole party then mounted their horses and rode away, not even attempting to drive away one of the cows standing in the lot just across the road. Mass.-vh Lambert, ' 12. THE CAROLINIAN Judge Not ' .KK was ])laiiily soniclliing wrong ' at Mrs. l- ' orcst ' s l)iiar(ling lool. Groups of girls were scattered Iiere and there over tlie campus talking excitedly and earnestly. Fay Harrell, a tall. sharp-eyed, nervous looking girl, was the center of one of these roups. Her voice could be heard above all the others uttering loud denunciations against some person. The girls around lier eagerly towards her, anxious to catch every word that fell from ■uige to say, there was only one girl in the whole school who was nut in either one or the other of these groups, and that was Christine ' aughn. On this afternoon, she had been in the library reading, and as she came down the steps towards the group of girls with Fay as the center, the talking ended in a confused murmur, the girls looked at each other significantly, and several noses were tilted in the air. Christine spoke to them pleasantly, but somehow there was no response, and she passed on towards her room with a pained, wondering look on her iisnallv 1)righl face, llefore she was completely out of hearing dis- tance she heard l " a say, " ' riie little buzz) ' ! .She thinks we haven ' t found it out. but we ' ll soon show her. " But why all this excitement in this usually quiet school? It was just two months since the girls had gathered there to begin another year ' s work. Among the new girls that had entered was Christine ' aughn, a quiet, reserved, studious girl from a small town in the eastern part of the State. For the very reason that she was so quiet and reserved, the other girls had paid little attention to her. But she soon showed them that she was clever and could surpass any of them in their studies. Fay was amazed at this, for up to this time she had easily been the acknowledged leader and it hurt her pride to see this little slip of a girl forging ahead of her. Her black eyes would flash when she thought of it, but what could she do? Try as she would, Christine ' s grades were always a point or two higher than her own. She sat up late at night, becoming hollow-eyed and nervous trying to keep her old place as leader. She grimly said that she had rather never sleep any at all than that the little golden-haired girl should make the better grade. About a week before the opening of our story. Fay began to miss various articles from her room. At first, it was only a Latin exercise that she had pre- THE CAROLINIAN pared to haiul in, but cxcry niyiit since. sonKthiny more alnable had tlisappeared. Trinkets and jewels were not the only things taken, for even money had been missed. Loud complaints were made, but still the thefts went on. Mrs, Forest told the girls to keep a sharp lookout and she herself made a thorough investi- gation of the matter, but could find out nothing. What could have become of the jewels and money? The strange part was that nothing was ever taken from any girl but Fay. She became more and more nervous as she missed one piece of jewelry and then another. When questioned by Airs. Forest as to whether she ever heard anything out of the ordinary at night she replied. " Nothing, although I slee]i ver}- little. " On the afternoon before. Fay went to her room unexpectedly and met Chris- tine just as she was coming out with a book which she had borrowed. There had been no one in the room at the time when Christine went in, but, as the girls always borrowed a book when needed, it was perfectly natural for her to do so. Nevertheless, Fay looked at her suspiciously, for somehow Christine was always so reserved and queer, she wondered if she didn ' t have something to do with the disappearance of the different things. On the very next morning Fay missed a valuable ring. Then indeed she was certain that Christine had taken it, for hadn ' t she been seen alone in the room the day before? Fay took a grim satis- faction in thinking that she would now be able to humiliate her rival. She told several of her special friends of her sus])icion and soon the news had spread like wildfire among the girls. Some stoutly defended Christine, but most of them were with Fay. It was not that they especially disliked the quiet girl, but it was so easy to go with the crowd instead of offering any objection. This was the state of affairs on the afternoon on which we saw Christine pass the group of girls on the campus. As Christine passed out of sight. Fay turned to the girls around her and said : " I ' m going to report this to Mrs. Forest and ask her to search every room in the dormitory. I imagine she will find out that her favorite pupil is not quite so innocent as she appears to be. " With that remark, she went at once to Mrs. Forest and told her what she wished to have done. Mrs. Forest, a motherly, sweet-faced woman, was greatly surprised at the request, but readily consented to undertake the search and asked Fay to assist her. There was perhaps half a dozen rooms to be gone through before Christine ' s was reached, but nothing unusal was found in any of them. As they approached Christine ' s door a little murmur of excitement was heard among the girls who had gathered in the hall. There was a hard, ser 190y THE CAROLINIAN 171 look on Fay ' s face. " Now, " she thought, " we ' ll see who comes out ahead. " Mrs. Forest knocked at the door and in response to the soft " come in, " she and Fay went into the room. Christine was sitting by the open window in her dainty room dreamily looking at the sun as it was setting in the west, wondering why the girls had treated her so coldly on that day. " Surely, " thought Mrs. Forest, " there is no need to search this room, for Christine is as innocent as any child. " In answer to the surprised look which Christine gave her as she went in she said : " Miss ' aughn, I su])pose you know that we are searching all the rooms in the dormitory in order to see if we can possibly find any traces of the articles that have been stolen. " Christine jumped up at once and said with a bright smile: " Of course, Mrs. Forest, you are perfectly welcome to search my room. " She herself helped them to go through everything, but still there was nothing found. Fay was surprised, for she had fully expected to prove Christine guilt}. Finally she said : " Mrs. Forest, there is a small trunk in the closet. That hasn ' t been searched yet. " " I hardly think it is necessary to search further, Init you can look through and satisfy yourself. " Given this permission. Fay dropped down on her knees before the trunk which Christine had pulled out of the closet and opened for her. She began the search, taking out the articles one by one. until she reached the bottom, when there, with the ring on top, lay all the things that had been stolen. Christine uttered a cry of di.smay and astonishment as she looked at the arra} ' that Fay deliberately spread out before her. Who could have put those tilings into her trunk? She looked at Fay, but her face was hard and cold, and turning to Airs. Forest for sympathy, she said with a little moan : " Oh, surely, dear Mrs. Forest, you don ' t believe that I did that ? I don ' understand how those things could possibly have gotten into my trunk. I know I have never touched them. " " How else could they have been put in there? Such things do not usually walk around themselves. " was the sharp, quick reply of Fav. As for Mrs. Forest, she was standing looking at Christine, too much surprised and pained to say anything. She could not believe that the girl before her was guilty, neither could she explain how the stolen articles came to be in her room. At last, with a motion to the trinkets on the floor, she said to Fav : THE CAROLIN IAN .Mrs. 1 •direst thoufjln her s nilty? Tlie whv, (li (1 licit sciiiu- line ccinie td cxi)lain [)laniie(l a jdke (111 her? Xo. she wdiihl With a Inw. iiitifiil cry she dn)]ipe(l her " Take those things ami carry them td ymir rodiii. " Left alone with the young girl who was in such deep trouhle, she turned and putting her arms around Christine ' s shoulders said : " Christine what is it? Can it lie possihle that ydii have reall - heen taking these things all this time? " But the jioor girl could only stand with drawn face, wildly staring at her be- loved teacher. Could it be possible tl very thought was maddening. Wli} ' . . the matter! Had the girls deliberatel not believe that they would be so cruel head on Mrs. Forest ' s shoulder. " Oh, believe me, I know nothing about it. 1 had never thought of such a thing before tonight. I can ' t explain it. but surely there is some way to account for this thing. " Mrs. Forest did imt kiKiw what td dd. Long and earnest she talked td the girl, but could liiid dut nothing. Christine kept niurnniring that she had never touched tlidse jewels and knew nothing about it. Hut if she had not liciw did they get in her trunk? At last, saying that she wmild think dver the matter and let her kiuiw her decisidii dii the mdrrciw, Mrs. h ' drest left the miserable girl in After .Mrs. JMirest lefl Christine, she went td her dWii room and trieil to think of some sdlutidii df the pnibleni. I ' .ut try as she wduld, she always came back to the cdiiclusiiin that Christine must have taken the things. There seemed no way out of it. Must she send her home? Certainly it would have to be done, for a dishonest girl could not be kept in school. Long into the night she thought and prayed over this thing, but could reach no definite conclusion. At last, deci- ding to defer further thought until the next ilay, she rose to turn off her light, but suddenly stopped. What was that she heard out in the hall? Mrs. Forest listened intently and could plainly hear the faint footsteps of some one. She noiselessly opened her door and peered out into the hall. She could see some one slowly moving towards her. but the light was so dim she could not recognize the jiersoir Whoever il w;is ■-tdp]ied at L ' liristine X ' anglin ' s rdoiii, softly d|ieiied the dodr and ])assing in. clused llie ddcir after her.

Low, whispering sounds were heard. Then bubbles of excitement ran over all the students. The excitement slowly cooled, leaving a smile on the faces of Seniors. Another meeting was added. There was another overflow of excite- ment, a noise was heard and immediately on the front of each Senior ' s shirt- waist a glistening precipitate was formed. When this precipitate was closely examined it was found to be a hard, golden-colored substance which was a trifle heavier than aluminum. It adhered closely to the waist by means of a thin sub- stance called a pin. When jjrecipitate, the Senior and " case " were put into the room, the precipitate was attracted from the shirtwaist of the former to the latter. There is no noise whatever, so the second " case " of the Senior was added. Immediately there was a violent explosion. III. — Conclusion. Money is a strong and exciting agent, and when put in the hands of Senior a gold precipitate is formed, wdiich is called a " Senior Class Pin. " The inter- action of a strange compound called love caused the precipitate to be removed from the shirtwaist of the Senior to the Freshman " case. " A poisonous com- pound called jealousy, coming in sudden contact with love, caused the violent explosion when the second case was added.

" This small body, however, proved itself weak only in numbers, for its enthusiastic members, who had helped launch tlie ship df " Higher Education for Women " in North Carolina, who had stood so determin- edly by their pilot during its first voyage across a then uncharted sea, and who now, in the desired haven, had received their honorable discharge, determined that, through their efforts, other women should be enabled to take the same voyage to their newly-discovered land of a possible independent and uplifted womanhood. Therefore, they assumed for ihe life work of the organization the estabhshment of an Alumnje Loan Fund. During the next nine years their little band was gradually augmented by new members from each succeeding class, and the work of raising and establishing this loan fund went steadily on. But the amount that could be raised was neces- sarily small, while the need for it was great. However, the President of the Col- lege, who had always cooperated with the Association, in the capacity of an ad- visory board, knowing well the good that had already been accom])lished through its small disbursements, and realizing, with almost pro]i]ietic vision, the wonderful good that could be accomplished through an organization that was gradually en- rolling among its members representative young women from every section of the State, determined that their efforts should be supplemented. He worked heroically for this end, and finally in the summer, or early fall of 1902, obtained the promise of tlie General Educational Board to supply one-half of an Alumnre Loan and Scholarship Fund of fifteen thousand dollars, upon the condition that the Alumnas Association itself should raise the remaining seven thousand five hun- dred dollars within three years time. This oft ' er he announced to the Alumnae at their decennial meeting in May. 1003. The Association at that time consisted, in round numbers, of about two THE CAROLINIAN lumdrcil nuni;- wunicii, iiKist of whom were teaching on small salaries in various pul)lic schools of the State, yet they undertook to raise their required share. In this work they were inost nobly aided by the Association of Former Students, and in January, 1906, the entire amount had been collected. This fund of fifteen thousand dollars has always been handled in the name of the . lunin:e .Association, and has already made possible the normal training of one hundred and forty-two young women, a part of the fund having been put into actual service as early as 1903. Yet their success, and a partial realization of the benefits that would accrue therefrom, ser -ed nt)t to satisf}-, but, rather to slinuilate the members of the organization. So it was thai, in Xovcmbcr, l ' ' (l(i, when the .Mumna; Association and the Association of Former Students met at the College in special session, to plan their tribute to the memory of its founder and first President, the late Charles Duncan Mclver, it was unanimously decided — however else the citizens of a grateful State might honor his memory — that the truest memorial that could be devised for him by these two bodies would be their effort to further the reali- zation of the ideal in behalf of which he had spent his life; an ideal that meant the possibility of an education to every ambitious and deserving young woman in the State of North Carolina. The work of these two organizations thus becoming identical, they agreed at the following commencement to merge themselves undei the name of the Alumnje Association, and through the efforts of its members to raise the amount of fifty thousand dollars to be known as the Alclver Loan Fund. For this purpose a Field Secretary was appointed to visit every county of the State and organize local Alumns Associations. At this time thirty-two counties have been visited, and the sum of seventeen thousand dollars has already been promised toward this fund, the various county organizations pledging themselves to raise amounts varying from one hundred to four thousand dollars. The portion of the fund already raised is now invested in the form of loan funds to deserving students, wdio, without this aid, could not complete their college course. Thus, in brief, is stated both the history and the purpose of the organization..
