Prof. Bernard, in his speech, paid particular attention to
the hazing situation at Chapel Hill, showing that hazing
was, and had been for some time, steadily on the decrease,
and that this year there had been, so far as the faculty
had been able to learn, not a single case of vicious hazing,
including the Rand case. Prof. Bernard told of the Rand
investigation and of the investigation of the "rough house"
which happened last year, which investigations resulted in
the expulsion or suspension of 14 students.
Prof. Bernard, in concluding his remarks, told of the
estimation in which the University is held among educa-
tional experts of the country, and he quoted Dr. Babcock.
one of the country's greatest experts, as placing only three
of the Southern universities in the first class. These are
the University of North Carolina, the University of
Virginia and Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt is placed in this class
because of its magnificent equipment, Virginia because of
her great postgraduate departments, and North Carolina
because it is doing more thoroughly than any other insti-
tution in the South that which is the peculiar function of
a State institution—educating the undergraduate students.

Thirty members of the local alumni association of the
University of North Carolina gathered in the Commercial
Club rooms tonight and celebrated the one hundred and
nineteenth anniversary of the opening of that institution.
Owing to the fact that University Day fell on Saturday
and many alumni were busy or out of town, no elaborate
program was prepared, and a smoker was the only cele-
Speeches were made by Major W. A. Guthrie, Victor S.
Bryant, and ex-Judge J. S. Manning, each emphasizing the
hopeful outlook for the future of the University.
A committee, consisting of W. J. Brodgen, T. B. Pierce,
and T. C. Worth, was appointed to send a telegram of con-
gratulations to President Venable, assuring him of the sup-
port of the local alumni association.
Another committee of five members was appointed to
investigate the methods and plans whereby local alumni
associations may be more closely welded together and
work more for the common good of the University.
Officers for the coming year were elected as follows:
W. D. Carmichael, president; W. M. Parsley, vice-presi-
dent; James S. Manning, Jr., secretary and treasurer.—

A meeting of University alumni living in Creensboro was
held Saturday night, October 12. in the parlor of the
Mer-chants' and Manufacturers' Club, there being in attendance
an enthusiastic body composed of both old and young
alumni of the institution. The meeting was in the nature
of a smoker and there was no definite program, However,
there was a hearty and general discussion of the Univer-
sity, of conditions at Chapel Mill, and of the needs of the
institution, both old and young showing an unusual earnest-
ness in considering the problems which were opened
before the meeting—the uncommon problems of the Univer-
sity at the present time.
The alumni elected the following officers for the ensuing
year: Clem G. Wright, president; Carter Dalton,
vlce-president; and Marmaduke Robins, secretary-treasurer.
The meeting was adjourned with college songs and yells.—
