AS SOUTH S TRIBUTE
Proposed to Build a Great University for Women. VIRGINIA URGED TO LEAD Would Avoid Need of Co-Education at Charlottesville. ASKED TO ATTEND CHAPEL President Alderman, However, Does Not Believe in Making Attendance of Students Compulsory. Special Oarreapou'ieucc of The Star. CHARLOTTESVILLE. Va.( October 14. 1911. The general discussion of a subject that has received unusual consideration in the past few years In the columns of Collet:? Topics, the chief news medium of the University of Virginia, has been the most interesting development of the past week here. It is generally known by all those who have followed the university affairs in late years that on several distinct occasions the Virginia legislature has defeated a motion to establish a CO- j ordinate college for women at the local institution. Topics treats the subject in part as follows: Tribute to Northern Women. "The announcement made* the other day that a movement had just been launched in New York city to raise half a million dollars to build a national monument in Washington to the memory ?i the northern women who suffered during the civil war, brings home the fact that the heroism and noble self Siv riti. e displayed by the women of the south during tiiat bitter period are still unperpetuated in marble or stone. A movement to that end has been proposed. and some of its most ardent supporters are to be found here in Virginia, but so far as we"know no official action, beyond the passing of resolutions favoring it,* has ever been taken in tiie matter by either tae Daughters or Sons of the Confederacy, or any other southern organization. "One of the most enthusiastic advocates of such a monument is Don P. Halsev of Lynchburg, a member of the state senate, at its last session. His iaea of a titting monument is that which was advanced by a southern woman nearly twenty years ago at the Chicago world s fair She declared that it ought to take the form of a great memorial university for women. She called attention to the enduring hxyaertts that would accrue from such an institution as contrasted with the unsuu. cautia: cuaracter of a mere monumental shaft, built of bronze or marble, however high. Don P. Halsev sees in the plan to establish such a monument something besides a memorial; he sees . in' it a means of averting the necessity of the state founding a co-ordinate college for women at this university In order to afford the women of the state equal opjortunity with the men for acquiring higher education. Virginia Should Lead. "In an address he delivered June 3 be- 1 fore the Veterans and Daughters of the Confederacy at Fannville, Va.. he sugcroc <..<! that tho wnmpn of thp StfltP who are favoring the plan of a co-ordinate college combine their efforts with those of the advocates of a suitable memorial to the women of the Confederacy, and ask that a separate institution, a women's university, be founded by the state of Virginia. 'By so combining their efforts and influence.' said Mr. Halsey at that time, 'they will secure a far more efficient and useful institution than , they can secure by working for an ob- , jectionabie annex. Let Virginia lead the way, and perhaps the other southern , states and their people will join hands ( with her in making the memorial institution represent the entire south. Surely no state is better entitled to lead than Virginia. Let Virginia then make the same appropriation and provide the same annuity for a great memorial university that will be asked for the proposed annex. This will be sufficient for a start, and by founding the institution in memory of the Confederate women it will ipso facto invite and receive support from sources that would feel no interest in a woman's college as an annex to the men's university. It will give the annex advocates what they want in an effective and unobjectionable way, and will cost no more tif as much) to the state, for the reason that such a memorial institution would attract contributions to its endowment fund from individuals and organizations which would give nothing to an annex. For instance, it is conceivable that those organizations already at work to raise money for a monument to southern women would prefer to erect that monument in the form of a building or perhaps to found a school ?>f industrial training at the proposed memorial university.' and j members of the various southern societies' all over the country, as well as individuals, would doubtless consider it a j privilege to contribute to an adequate i endowment.' " Attendance at Chapel. It is the policy of the faculty committee on religion at the University of Virginia to bring the strongest available spgakers in this vicinity here to lecture in the university chapel. . Tomorrow Dr. Walter Dingle will occupy the pulpit. Dr. Dingle is one of the leading clergymen of the south, is a native of Kowan county, N. C., a graduate of Davie son College and Union Theological Seminary, where he has only recently l>een made professor of Hebrew literature. For many years he has been president of the board of trustees at Davidson ?"ollege. During his stay in Charlottesville, he will be the guest of President and Mrs. Alderman of the university. Dr. A'derman. the committee on religious exercises and a representation of he student body of the university, have held numerous conferences of late in regard to the general attitude toward < ha pel exercises, the duties and responsibilities of the students in maintaining II GOOD NEWS I For Bad Stomachs 1 The successful Europe an rem1 edy, Stomallx, cures where I all others faiL I Imparts a new digestive power I to poor stomachs.

N Y and furthering religious services in the university chapel. The general sentiment seems to he that there has been a lack of appreciation and interest shown among students this year. Just what methods will be pursued is a matter of conjecture, hut it Is safe to say that the influence of the "reformers" is bound to show before the close of the year. It is hardly eecpected that drastic steps will be taken. Dr. Alderman practically set all such conception at rest at a recent meeting when he stated most emphatically that it was not his purpose to tell the students what they should do as regards the chapel services. They have the right and they should reserve tire right, he said further, of attending or not attending as they saw fit. He merely desired to state the conditions as they exist at present, to show how the attendance of late has decreased until it! has reached a discouraging minimum. J C. W. Wagner, A. v . tiisnop anci rt. o. Granville, represented the student body of the university at the conferences. Lecture on Hebrew Codes. Another large and appreciative audience listened to the seiond lecture of a series on biblical subjects under the auspices of the Young Men's Christian Association last Tuesday night. Prof. Armstead M. Dobie. the speaker, chose as his subject ' The Early Hebrew Codes and Modern Jurisprudence." Prof. Dobie's talk treated of the influence of the Hebrew codes on modern jurisprudence. He showed what cardinal j * - ? * T ! ? 1? 1 t. *.? principles ui jewisu iaw unit: i?-m i ?=tained, modified and rejected. There Is no more interesting subject in the whole range of knowledge than the evolution of modern jurisprudence, as was < learly demonstrated in the forceful remarks of the speaker. Rev. Dr. J. Ross Stevenson, pastor of Brown Memorial Church of Baltimore, is here today to offi iate at the university services. He is the guest of Dr. and Mrs Kent. Invitations haw been issued among the university students and other fiitnds of Mr. and Mrs. William Rile, for the debut reception of their daughter. Miss Eleanor Lile, Wednesday, October IS, from 8 to 10 o'clock p.m Miss Lile is a young lady of charming personality. East year she graduated from a seminary in Washington, where she has spent the greater part of the past few seasons. Mr. Lile is dean of the department of law at the university, an 1 is widely known. Word has just reached here of the wonderful success of Maurice Hirsch, a former University of Virginia student, who after graduating here two years ago entered the Harvard I^aw School. Hirsch has been elected to the staff of the Harvard Law Review * considered by many the greatest honor that can be conferred by the university. Among the eight selected for positions on the staff are Robert Taft, son of President Taft; Charles Hughes, son of Justice Hughes, and E. J. Seligman. son of Prof. Seligman, the noted philosopher of Columbia University. At the University of Virginia Hirsch established an enviable record and was awarded the A. M. and A. B. degrees. He is also the possessor of a medal presented by the Washington Literary Society for unusual efficiency in oratory. Martin Will Help Team. The many friends of Larry Martin, the ?x-captain of the University of Virginia Held and track squad, who established a remarkable record during his career on *i- til Vvo r>1oo co/1 tn loo rn LUC iWIUCl }>a111, n ill Kfxr J'n. aci v* vu u j [hat he has fully recovered from a recent i operation for an attack of appendicitis. Martin's case was a most remarkable jne in that he was released from the hospital a week after the operation was performed. The success of the operation was due to his exceptional physical conlltlon, which was largely responsible for tils excellent showing in athletics. A pleasing personality and ability as in athlete has earned for him a host of friends throughout this section of the country and resulted in his election to the captaincy of the track team in 1010 and prominence in other college activities. He will not re-enter the university, but has promised to remain true to its colors and aid in whatever direction he can. "Pop" Lannigan will have his services in rounding the traclf men into form until about January 1, when he will probably devote his interests to a farm that he has purchased In North Carolina. The Civic Club, one of the most prominent institutions of the university, held its first meeting in Madison Hall last week, at which many topics of current interest were discussed The most important development of the opening meeting was an announcement of the completion of a written report on the lire or mountaineers living in tne Ragged mountains, which Is due to the efforts of several members of tlie 191<> Civic Club. The report is highly intereating, dealing with ?eoiiomic. religious, educational and Industrial features, and Includes, with other things, the status of marriage, the morals and the home life of the mountaineer. The work as it stands completed embodies upward of lS.OuO words. It will be published In pamphlet form, and copies will be distributed among the public and college libraries throughout the country. Senator La Follette to Lecture. Senator Robert M. I.a Fo,.ette will probably be one of the speakers before the Civic Club this season. Authorities at the univemity think well of the Wisconsin statesman, and are determined to have him here as their guest at some time when ?he will be in a position to cast aside his (ongressional duties in Washington for a day or two. His reputation as a public speaker brought his name to the fore in the discussion as to possibilities for principals In a series of heart-to-heart talks on current topics of general interest. The Civic Club is an organization that has always been looked upon as a credit to the university. It is composed of forty students and ten members of the faculty. The vacancies each year are filled by election after being passed by the membership committee. There are about twenty vacancies among the student membership this season, which will be filled from a list of candidates. latest registration figures show a substantial inerease since the last count. There are now 7?G students attending the different schools. Of these 3B8 are in the college department. .15 in the graduate department, 3X1 in the taw department, 85 In the medicine department and 100 in the engineering department. At this time last session the registration was less than 700, which seems to warrant the claim that the total before the | end of the season will reach the OOO mark, i President Alderman has accepted an invitation to deliver the Founders' day address at Tome Institute, a preparatory school in Port Deposit, Md., the early part of next May. Founders' day is placed next to commencement In point of importance on the calendar at Tome, and ?h? <? ? ?? w ....itwvivu ?o looked upon generally as a tribute to Virginia's president. Outlook for Athletics. Tlie athletic outlook at the university is growing more encouraging as time progresses. and it now seems safe to predict I 6 r I All of ther IT] ^ Lani that this season will be a profitable one from every standpoint. The foot ball team is showing better form every day and the acquisition of several new men who have practically clinched their positions on the varsity eleven has added considerable interest to the entire situation. That interview with Coach Young of ti e William and Mary team, who c aimed some experience as a member of the University of Pennsylvania eleven, which was published on several -occasions in Washlngtor Is not taken seriously by the student body, the players or the coach. Coach Young was severely criticised after the William and Mary game here frsv lav mothnrlu in A i rociin tv t) t r> nlfl v of A. Vi IUA HH. ? ilV7UO * ?? V?'? vw??t>a his team. The very fact that lie continually allowed his team to receive the kickoff from Virginia, paving the way to score after score by the Virginia eleven, led local authorities to doubt his ability as a coach and his standing as a critic of the comparative abilities of these two or any other foot ball teams. It has been pointed out that had he reversed his directions and allowed his men to kick off to Virginia the score would hardly have shattered all previous records, as was the case. As matters stood the helpless William and Mary players would receive the kick and after several fruitless attempts to gain territory, would be forced to surrender the ball within the shadow of Virginia's goal posts. All that remained for the local team to do was to use a couple of plays and score a touchdown. FIND FOSSIL SPECIMENS. Secretary Walcott and Party Have Returned From British Columbia. Secretary Charles D. Walcott of the Smithsonian Institution, who, with I?. D. Hurling, assistant curator, and Secretary Walcott's children have spent the summer geologizing near Field, British Columbia, have returned to Washington. The party collected over four tons of fossil specimens. On Mount Stephen, which is near ths Canadian Pacific railroad line, is located the largest and finest beds of marine fossils to be found In North America, or, indeed, in the world. The mountainside has been, in past geologic ages, raised up from the bottom 01 a prehistoric sea, and this ancient ocean bed carried with it millions of specimens of the earliest forms of life. Among the other specimens secured by ti e Waleott party are fossil specimens of a large number , of species of altogether unknown and undescribed marine animals. TO SHOW NEW STYLES. ' Creations" From Paris Will Be Exhibited at Eaoscher's. "Creations" from the ateliers of importers. dressmakers, ladies' tailors, milliners, furriers, bootmakers and other purveyors of fashionable attire for women are announced as the chief exhibits to be shown at the national style show, announced for Rauscher's ballrooms October 23, 24 and 25. The exhibition of the art that lies in high-grade needlework will be a feature. About twenty-five young women will be employed to display model garments, which will be shown in prettily decorated booths. Neighborhood House will have an extensive exhibit, consisting of hand-sewing as applied to garments, fancy cos tumes for dramatic performances and hand-weaving at linen. i Dr. H. S. Lewis Leaves Hospital. Dr. Harry 8. Lewis, who has been resident physician at the Emergency Hospital during the past fifteen months, will leave the hospital today. He was appointed to fill the position a year, but at the expiration of his term the board was not willing to let him go. It is the intention of the physician to resume his studies before he begins the practice of his profession outside of institutions.
