term, January 6, the price of board inthe qulege dining hall will be increased‘from sixteen to mneteen dollars per“month.

_ The College does- not wish to makeany profits on its boarding department,but we feel that it should be self-sustaining. An accurate account of ex-penses has been kept during the fallterm, making no charges for rent, heat,light or water, and we find that theactual cost of food and service hasbeen between eighteen and nineteendollars per month for each student.

The department has been operated as' economically as possible under thepresent high prices of food and labor,and we are convinced that the costcannot be reduced if our students areto be given the proper amount andquality of food.. Those who are strug-gling with expense accounts at homewill appreciate the necessity of thismeasure. W. C. RIDDICK,

Mr. Gunterlived with his family here some yearsago at the place now owned by Mr.A. F. Bowen. His brother, Emil Gunter,remained in College long enough tofinish his course, but Herman was hereonly part of one year. Emil Gunterdied some years ago. Following is theannouncement :

“Dr. E. H. Sellards, State Geologistof Florida since the 01ganization of theSurvey in 1907, resigned that positionon April 18,1919, to accept an appoint—

ment as Geologist with the Bureau ofEconomic Geology of the University ofTexas, Austin, Texas. Mr. HermanGunter, who has been assistant on theSurvey since its establishment, hasbeen appointed to succeed Dr. Sellardsas State Geologist of Florida.”

The New Dormitories

The Executive Committee of theNorth Carolina State College of Agri-culture and Engineering at its meetingon December 18, after thoroughly con-sidering the question of dormitories inconsultation with the State architect,decided to adopt for future construc-tion the sectional type Of dormitoriesnow in use in most of the larger col-leges.Arrangements were made for the

construction of dormitory room to ac-commodate about 215 students. Workwill begin on these buildings not laterthan February 1, and they will un-doubtedly be completed in time for theopening of the next session in Septem-ber, 1920.

This does not provide the necessarydormitory space, but it is all the com-mittee felt justified in undertaking atthe present time.

The Department Of Vocational Edu-cation in the College is issuing aperiodical known as Agricultural Edu-cation Monthly. The following gentle-men connected with the department areresponsible for the paper: Leon E.Cook, C. E. Myers, J. S. Howard, T. E.Browne and Roy H. Thomas. Themonthly is printed on the multigraphand is neat and readable. It serves auseful purpose and is well conducted.

Requirement for AdmissionRaised

The College has at last raised itsentrance requirements from 11 to 14units, to take effect September, 1920.The required subjects remain the sameas heretofore—that is, 81/; units areprescribed, as follows: English, 3; his-tory, 2; mathematics, 21/2, and science1. The authorities of the College havelooked forward for a long time to tak-ing this step forward, but not until thepast year has it seemed possible to go


up to 14 units. Only a few years agowe were admitting students withunits, which was probably about thesame as the completion of the ninthgrade. Then we went up to 11 units,which admitted boys who have donewell in tenth .grade work. It willhardly be possible hereafter for a boyto enter who has not had eleventhgrade work. For a long time a gooddeal has been said to the discredit Ofthe College on account of its low stand-ard of entrance. The fact that boyscould enter so low has‘br‘ought a goodmany boys here who should have re-mained longer in the high schools. Theimmense increase in attendance at theCollege during the last year has madeit possible to fill up the College witheleventh grade students. Many youngmen who entered last fall had from12 to 18 units of entrance credit. Theentrance requirements should havebeen raised a year ago, but no onecould foresee at that time that thatwould be wise or even desirable.

Our college laundry has changedhands. Mr. J. J. Hotchkiss, who hasoperated the laundry since it was es-tablished, has sold the laundry to Mr.J. B. Cullins, who for six years hasbeen engineer and foreman of thelaundry at St. Mary’s School. Mr. Cul-lins is very highly recommended andwe may confidently expect that thelaundry will be in good hands. ThoseOf us who know Mr. and Mrs. Hotch-kiss will regret that they are to leaveus. They have made many friendsamong the College people, both studentsand teachers. -

The following report of the recentsanitary inspection of the College isgatifying to College people and is acredit not merely to Major Hulvey andhis efficient corps, but to Mr. Caudle,superintendent of buildings andgrounds:

“State College, West Raleigh—TheCollege, if rated on the basis of 100per cent would score 100. The sani-tary arrangements in all departmentswere excellent. There is only one Ob-jectionable condition—the toilet andlavatories in Patterson Hall are poorlylighted and ventilated. It is recom-mended that inasmuch as more than750 boys are fed at the College dininghall daily, that the handlers Of food berequired to undergo a medical exam-ination the same as the handlers offood in hotels.”

On Tuesday evening, December 9, theCollege Band and College Glee Clubtogether presented a concert whichproved to be a very pleasant occasionfor all who attended. The presentState College Band is undoubtedly thebest musical organization the Collegehas ever 'had. Credit is due verylargely to Mr. Price, who has workeduntiringly with the organization sincehe took charge of it about a year ago.The College Glee Club, which is underthe direction Of Mr. C. O. Lehman, andwhich has been organized only thisfall, is already establishing its goodname in the College and wherever ithas been heard. These two organiza-tions together are the pride Of thewhole College. They are doing asmuch in the way of making morale andencouraging College pride of the rightsort as almost any other agency thatone can mention.

Northampton County students haveformed a county club at the College,with Paul T. Long, of Jackson, as pres-ident and E. W. Harris, of Seaboard,as secretary and treasurer. R. E. Dun-ning, of Rich Square, is vice-president.Other members Of the club are: J. J.Rogers, R. E. Vick and M. R. Stephen-son Of Seaboard, C. G. Parker, 0. F.Smith and B. H. Connor of Rich Square.The purpose of the club is to promotefriendship among Northampton Countyboys at the College. This step on thepart of the boys of that county is onethat we heartily commend. The Oflicehas ready a list of the students bycounties and it is hoped that in thewinter and spring we shall have morecounty clubs.The Register of Alumni has at last

been delivered by the printers. Theprinting situation in Raleigh has causedmuch delay in bringing it out andthere are some imperfections, to saynothing about inaccuracies whichcould not be avoided. The directory,however, is useful and ‘ in the maincorrect. Write for a copy if you wishone. - -

The MemorialWe make no apology for consuming

two pages of our space to give- thepictures of twenty-four Of the thirty-,three former students who have losttheir lives in the war.The Memorial Committee have not

lost hope of raising $10,000 to erect atthe College a creditable memorial tothe memory of these brave men.Many who should have given to this

object have not yet done so, but wehave not lost hope of them either.Fellow alumni, you must come across.We have not attempted a thing whichwe cannot hope to do. Those who wishto do bigger things should reflect thatif we cannot raise $10,000 we cannothope to raise enough to put up abuilding. Ten thousand should not beour stopping point, but that is all weare asking for now. Those who wishto do more will find the present com-mittee at their service. The sooner wecan finish our task the sooner we cangive place to those who wish to at-tempt greater things, or the sooner adecision can be made as to the formlofthe memorial.At present the cash collections

amount to a little more than $4,000,with additional pledges of between twoand three thousand more. Money isstill coming in at the rate of about $25.a day. Space forbids a detailed state-ment in this issue.

Honor for Raleigh GirlMiss Susan Walker Jones, who is

pursuing a postgraduate course in Bi-ology and Chemistry at the Universityof Michigan, has recently been electedan associate member of the Woman’sResearch Club of that institution. 0nthe membership list of the organizationare some of the foremost scientists inthe country. The appointment of MissJones is regarded as a high compli-ment. To receive the appointment it isnecessary to be recommended by twomembers of the faculty of the univer-sity as having the special qualificationsrequired. Miss Jones is a daughter ofMr. William Walker Jones, and was aspecial student in State College lastyear.—News and Observer.

Young Men’s ChristianAssociation

THE WEATHERFORD MEETINGSOne of the outstanding events Of the

fall term was the visit of Dr. W. D.Weatherford, who for eighteen yearswas International Student Secretary Ofthe Young Men’s Christian Associationfor the South. Dr. Weatherford knowsstudent life as few men do and useslanguage and illustrations that collegemen understand.While at State College, December

12, Dr. Weatherford delivered threeaddresses to the student body on“Christian Ideals in College Life.” Inthese addresses he dealt with suchfundamentals as honesty, purity, andthe every man’s need for the power ofGod in his life. The attendance atthese meetings was exceptional. Three-fourths Of the students were presentand many of the members of the fac-ulty. The impression made was fine.The band, orchestra and glee club co-operated with the Association tO makethe occasion a success by furnishingmusic. At the close of the last meet-ing twenty-five men who were non—church members made decisions for theChristian life and one hundred andfifty others signified their intention tolive a better Christian life.The results Of this campaign have

not vanished. There is a higher moraltone in the student body and the wayhas been opened for more aggressiveChristian work.

THE DEs MOINES CONVENTIONThe greatest event that has ever

taken place in the history Of the NorthAmerican Christian Student Movementis scheduled for December 31 to Janu-ary 4. This is the Student VolunteerConvention to be held in Des Moines,Iowa. This convention will be attend-ed by 9,000 delegates representing thevarious colleges Of North America. Itwill be led by the greatest Christianstatesmen of this continent and therewill be speakers from every quarter Ofthe globe. The purpose Of this conven-tion is to bring together the choiceststudents of the land tO consider to-gether, under expert leadership, thegreat outstanding religious, social and.moral problems of the world and to'challenge them to meet these problems.

Eleven students, Prof. L. L. Vaughanand the General Secretary will repre-sent State College at this convention..Upon their return a campaign will bewaged at State for enrolling at least400 men in the study Of world prob—lems. State College students will alsobe asked to take a part, financially, inthe missionary enterprise. In time wehope to send men out tO the foreignfield from our Association. The daywhen the foreign field demands techni-cally trained men is here.

MOTION PICTURESThe free moving picture shows given

by the Association ,On Thursday after-noons and nights have proved so popu-lar with the students that it has beendecided to continue these after the holi-days. Programs featuring such starsas William Hart, Marguerite Clark andDouglas Fairbanks will be put on.

BOWLINGNew bowling equipment has just

been received. After the holidays thealleys will be refinished and the newequipment installed. This will createnew interest in bowling and will fur-nish recreation for both students andmembers of the faculty during the win-ter months.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON PROGRAMDuring the months when the weather

is bad, Sunday afternoons pass ratherslowly with the students who have fewacquaintances in the city. The Asso-ciation has, therefore, decided to puton musical programs. Capt. P. W.Price and the State College band willcooperate in this. Assistanceis ex-pected from the orchestra and gleeclub, from talent in town and'fromMeredith and Peace.

D. A. Monroe (’17) Back fromPhilippines

D. A. Monroe was in Carthage Mon-day with his father from BensalemTownship. Mr. Monroe comes fromthe Philippines to his home in Ben-salem for a six months vacation.About four years ago Mr. Monroe re-ceived an appointment from the \VarDepartment to fill the place as princi—pal under the Bureau Of Education inone Of the schools of the island. Hewas located at IlOilO, some 350 milessouth Of Manila. He left there thefirst Of September. reaching his homehere about forty-three days later. Andas this is his first trip home during thefour years he appreciates his vacation.

Mr. Monroe lives in a little townmade up Of natives, with about a dozenAmericans in the colony. His work inthe school is of an industrial charac-ter, teaching the students manualtraining, basketry, weaving and car-pentry work. He is also the instructorof the machine shop, giving the stu—dents of that country an idea Of mod-e111 machineiy and one that they canearn a practical livmg with later on.—(arthage News.

Two State College Boys Start inNursery Business

W. R. Hoots and Joseph Lee, ofLandrum, S. C., both graduates Of theState College of Raleigh, have start-ed a nursery business, with headquar-ters at Landrum and East Flat Rock.The Chase place, about one-half

mile below Flat Rock, has been securedfor the enterprise, and 25 acres will beused there for the grafting of applebuds on seedling stock and setting outgrape cuttings. The present schedulecalls for the grafting of 10,000 apples.At Landrum the business will for the

most part be a peach nursery.—Hen-‘dersonville (N. C.) News.Mr. Thomas A. Ratcliffe is business

manager of the Morris Fertilizer Com-pany at Atlanta, Ga. Mr. Ratcliffe isstill a good friend Of the College. Hewas astudent here at the same time asMr. C. B. Williams, with whom he haskept in touch since he left College.

B.E. ’17—Mr. W. P. Davis, whosehome address is Stovall, N. C. visitedthe College recently. He is connectedwith the Coast and Geodetic Survey.




T. H. STAFFORD, ’12For the firstgtime in the history of

basketball here, State has made a seri-ous attempt to start work before theholidays. Coach Crozier issued the callfor candidates immediately after thefootball season, and from then untilCollege closed yesterday the Techtossers have been hard at it daily.This early preliminary work will

greatly simplify the Tech leader’sproblem in developing a quint for thehard games to come after Christmas.There are a number of promising menin the new material and Crozier hasbeen getting a line on them whileteaching the old men his system. Whit-ner, Curtis, Rhodes, and Johnson havebeen showing up especially well.Another innovation was the practice

game with Durham “Y” December 13.State won handily—38 to 18—piling upthe largest total we have been able toscore for three seasons against thisteam. The team showed the effects ofcareful coaching and the passing andteamwork was mid-season in form.Ripple and Captain Cline led in thescoring. with Groomekclose behind. Afull account appears elsewhere in thisissue.We are able to announce the follow-

ing partial schedule. Another gamewill be arranged with Carolina andseveral others are pending:

Sammy Homewood is given one ofthe end positions on the second team,while Weathers gets an honorable men-tion.Commenting on the season in the

same article, Mr. Keller says:“A notable occurrence was the re-

sumption of football relations betweenNorth Carolina University and NorthCarolina State College after a lapse ofmany years. The teams met at Ra-leigh late in October, with the Univer-sity getting a decision over the Collegethrough the failure of the latter tonegotiate a goal after touchdown.”


“ . . . Following the gridiron style ofthe country, upsets were numerous inthe South Atlantic. Virginia MilitaryInstitute was swamped by North Caro-lina State and then overwhelmed NorthCarolina, the team that turned backthe West Raleigh eleven.”In reference to men selected for the

mythical honor team, he has the fol-lowing to say about our representa-tives:“An abundance of tackle material

came to light, with Ripple of NorthCarolina State and Pierce of VirginiaPoly. leading the field. Both were ag-gressive, shifty and powerful. Faucette,N. C. State, besides being a heady fieldgeneral, was exceptionally adept bothin throwing and receiving forwardpasses and in running the ball. Hehas no real competition for premierquarterback honors. Gurley, N. C.State, completes this sterling backfield.He is a speedy end skirter, a splendidinterferer, 'kicker.”

All three of these men are expectedto return to College next fall and willgive Coach “Willyum” a fine nucleusaround which to build for 1920.We will announce the 1920 schedule

in the next issue of “Alumni News.”Cut it out and save it'for reference.We believe it will be a humdinger.The baseball schedule is shaping up

nicely. We are planning to go Souththis season instead of the usual North-ern trip, the latter part of April.

State College Beats Durham “Y”in Fast Basketball Game

Playing their first game of the season,Coach Crozier’s basketball tossers ofState College last night defeated theDurham “Y” quint, 38 to 18, in a well-played exhibition featured by unusualteamwork generally seen in the earlypart of the season.At no time did the visitors threaten

to assume any big lead over the Techs,who performed consistently throughoutthe contest and piled up point afterpoint despite the brilliant guarding ofthe “Y” players. At the end of thefirst period the score stood 16 to 9 andthe West Raleigh collegians improvedas the game progressed. Returning tothe fray after the intermission, thevictors did much better and played an

. improved passing game.Ripple. Cline and Groome were the

scoring Techs and their points alonewould have defeated the Durham team,the three securing fifteen field goals.Ripple led with six goals, with Clinenext with five. Groome pocketed theleather four times.While it is too early to forecast the

caliber of the State College quint, theshowing last night demonstrated thatCoach Crozier is not lacking in excel-lent material. Even the substitutesshowed up well. The varsity quint wascomposed of five old players, who havealready contributed a basketball cham-pionship to the West Raleigh College.For Durham,.the guarding of Rich-

ardson featured. He held Park score-less and also gave his team four pointsby two pretty field shots.The line-up:State College, 38. Durham, 18.
