· · POE'S RICHMOND · · By AGNES M. BONDURANT

IN

Poe's Richwwnd the life and ideas of Poe have been interwoven with the history and culture of early nineteenth-century Richmond so as to reveal both writer and city in an unprejudiced manner. In Chapter I the city is presented as Poe's contemporaries described it. Not a few of the contemporaries were well-known writers, but they all had varying backgrounds and visited the city at different intervals. The other chapters reveal the industries and business, the law, politics and patriotism , the librari es and books, the church, the theatre and other amusements, and Poe's home environment and friends as they might have influenced the writer, who lived among them.

THEALUMNICOUNCIL

AndNewStudents By F. W. BOATWRIGHT, '88 It was not my privilege, on account of official duties, to be present at the meeting of the Alumni Council held during commencement, but I understand that the Council voted to make enrollment of new students in the University its chief undertaking for 1942-43. This action shows a thoughtful understanding of the stresses of war upon our institution, as upon all colleges. The University employs no paid agents to seek out high school graduates and direct them to its sses. It does not even use scholarships to attract students to its shman classes. Students already in the University who make • good records and need help are always given first consideration in the award of scholarships. The University depends primarily upon the record of its able teachers, the attractiveness of its campus and its excellent physical equipment, plus the cooperation of those who have studied here, to draw students to the institution . Thus far these forces have been sufficient to keep dormitories and classrooms full of ambitious students. Today, however, with Army, Navy, Marine and Air Corps calling for young men, and ever more young men, all colleges have suffered enrollment losses, and face yet greater losses. The prospective drop in attendance in colleges for men in 1942-43 is variously estimated from 15% to 50%. Dean Pinchbeck predicted in his June report to our trustees a probable decline in Richmond College of 20%. Such a drop in enrollment taken with the steady decline in rates of interest on all endowments would seriously affect our ability to maintain the University at present standards of efficiency. It should not be allowed to occur if it can possibly be prevented. And I believe it can be prevented. For the session of 1941-42, just closed, the University of Richmond showed a decline in attendance of slightly over 7% as compared with the previous session, while President Walters of the University of Cincinnati, statistician for the Association of American Colleges, found that the average decline in college and university enrollment for the United States was 9.16% . With the active help of our alumni we can make a better showing for 1942-43 than we did last session. WHAT

AN ALUMNUS

CAN

Do

TO HELP

First of all he can commend the University to his friends, especially A.those who have sons or daughters recently graduated from high .ool, or to the young people themselves. Then he can send the names of those who are real prospects to Acting Dean B. C. Holtz-

claw of Richmond College, or to Dean May L. Keller of Westhamp ton College, or to Dean M . Ray Doubles of the Law School, all with post office University of Richmond , Va. (Dean Pinchbeck is on furlough ' 'for the duration" in order to serve the Government as Price Executive for Virginia .) Catalogues and full information will be promptly sent to each prospect. In the next place, if a gifted student of insufficient means needs help, and the alumnus himself is not in position to give aid, he should encourage the student to seek help from his friends, should assist him in securing the aid of local philanthropists, or call on the University for scholarship or NY A aid. At this time all Westhampton College scholarships for 1942-43 have been awarded, but there are still a few major or minor scholarships available in Richmond College for worthy student s with high records. It is expected that NY A aid will be at least as gener ous as heretofore. Campus jobs for 1942-43 have already been assigned to students above the freshman class. SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIE

S

The war imposes many hardships upon colleges, but recent decisions of the War and Navy Departments have opened new oppor tunities to students subject to draft. Qualified students who make good class records may now enlist in almost any branch of the armed services and be assured of deferment until they have completed a degree course. The Government expects a long war and knows it will be needing officer material for probably the full length of a college course. There are also opportunities open to students not yet subject to draft, and they may improve their chances of appointment as officers by pushing ahead under our accelerated class program , which permits graduation in three years. The War and Navy Departments promise to make early announcement of allotments to approved colleges (of which Richmond College is one), but at this writing (June 18) the announcement concerning allotments of privileged students has not been received. It will probably come before July 1, and interested persons may obtain information by writing to Dr. B. C. Holtzclaw , Acting Dean . It is interesting to note , by the way, that thirty-two students entered our Summer School direct from high school graduation. This is an indication of the eagerness of many boys to advance their college training as rapidly as possible. With this feeling abroad in the land it should not be difficult for alumni and other friends of the University to send us all the students we can teach in 1942-43.

* * * Universityof Richmond Graduates176 Against a backdrop of war, the University of Richmond ended the 110th session by graduating 176 men and women, many of whom were prepared to go immediately into the armed service or into essential industries. In addition to the 176 degrees, Alma Mater had a scroll for C. Yates McDaniel, '27, chief of bureau for the Associated Press in Australia , the correspondent whose graphic story of the fall of Singapore won universal praise. The citation , written by Dr. Douglas S. Freeman, '04, rector of the University's board of trustees, praised the man who "after years of notable service as a correspondent of the Associated Press in the Far East, followed the fortunes of the democratic cause from China to Singapore to Java and to Australia; from defeat to rally and from rally to the promise of victory. Through the entire campaign he has faced danger with the courage of the soldier and has reported events with the care of the historian." The scroll will be mailed to McDaniel in Melbourne. The commencement address was made by Judge John J. Parker of [ 2

the Fourth U. S. District Court of Charlotte who advocated a league of nations, a world court and a police foKe powerful enough to deal effectively with any group of "international bandits." The Rev. Floyd W. Putney, D.D. '04, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Newport News, preached the baccalaureate sermon. A feature of commencement was the presentation to the University of portraits of Dr. Garnett Ryland, '92, for 25 years professor of chemistry (see cover); of B. West Tabb, '01, for 30 years treasurer until his death last August, and of James B. Taylor, prominent Baptist minister who more than a century ago had an important part in the establishment of Richmond College. Dr. Ryland's portrait was presented by Dr. James T. Tucker, '23, on behalf of former students and other friends. Mr. Tabb's portrait was presented on behalf of the family by the Rev. Theodore F. Adams, D.D., pastor of the First Baptist Church of Richmond, and the painting of Taylor was presented by his grandson, Dr. H. Marshall Taylor, •P, of Jacksonville, Fla.

(Alumni D ay Address by DAVE E. SATTERFIELD, '17)

Today is Memorial Day. With the world torn asunder by war, this day offers us an opportunity to emphasize those ideals which wiJI help us win throug'.1 10 the great conflict now raging all over the world. This is a solemn hour, fraught with much danger. The whole world is beset with forces of evil. In Europe, Asia, and Africa the nightmare of modern warfare is no longer a dream that is spent with the morning light but a vivid reality, an accomplished fact to be taken literally and with no illusions. The ingenuity of the inventor has equipped an army with new weapons of warfare mechanically perfect and infernally efficient, and with them the calculated cruelty of the conqueror has extinguished the national life of once powerful people and even now is threatening with extinction the Christian civilization of Western Europe. Destroyed forever is the fiction that those who crave only peace can preserve it through blind isolation. Our country is at the crossroads of history. Her destiny is before her. Her national debt is colossal, her industry only convalescent from the illness of depression, and her business men harassed by worry and apprehension. Her labor groups are engaged in fratricidal skirmishes; her Congress is threatened by organized bands of malcontents constantly demanding special privileges and benefits. By now, we know that national well-being is no accident. It does not just happen. As we undertake to make this country the arsenal of democracy, and to build an Army, Air Force, and Navy the like of which the world has never seen, we are greatly concerned that there are disturbing domestic fronts on which we must in this hour of world crisis continue to battle if we are going to make democracy acceed here at home. Certain it is that we are fast losing the habit self-government. Why? One of the reasons is the restlessness of people, not only in our own country but everywhere in the world. The present turmoil is largely attributed to the fact that those who are leading have lost the spiritual instinct. The simple know less and feel more, and despise those who know more and feel less. The average citizen, and particularly that large segment of our pop ulation which has not had the benefit of an education, together with that group, possessors of college degrees and yet uneducated, are giving free rein to feeling, uncontrolled by understanding. Vice President Thomas R. Marshall in his farewell address to the United States Senate said, "Religions die because priests mumble their creeds but have no faith in their Gods. Governments go to wreck because their statesmen shout aloud their shibboleths, but let a friendly enemy pass the ford." Governments also fail as did the ancient democracies, for the need of leadership all the way from Washington to the smallest township and country. There is a premium on leadership, today, and the challenge is to the graduates of colleges and universities. I do not believe that institutions of learning will be able to give very specific instructions about governing the world in the future . . . . but the hope of the world is that people like you and me . . . who have had the benefit of college training . . . will be able to demonstrate to those who follow us, that the processes of education have truly converted us from thoughtless undergraduates to thoughtful people . No group of people in all the world knows better than we do that "knowledge keeps no better than fish." It is habits and points of view that really count. We cannot go on successfully unless we ponder the wisdom of the past. If a liberal-arts training could guarantee a proper respect for these words of Emerson the battle u]d be won. Do you not remember these Jines? , "You cannot properly estimate what the years are saying to you . . . until you have knowledge of what the centuries have already told you."

Lord Grey was gravely saying some months ago that the lights of civilization were going out one by one all OYer Europe. That happc:neJ long ago when Rome fell and the seat of government was moved from the river Tiber to the Bosphorus. Learning was driven into the monasteries . . . monarchs reigned who could not write their own names, and ruthlessness and ignorance prevailed for a thousand years. These things follow in the wake of Atheism, race hatred, and brute force. These are the results sure to follow if the Totalitarian Nations are victorious. Thank God those lights still burn . . . in some places they flicker as a guttering candle, but they are not and they will not go out! Not so long ago it was considered smart in some of the colleges of the land to belittle patriotism. Some of the high priests of intellectua lity were wont to go about the land making sarcastic remarks portraying patriotism as a childish thing. Student bodies were parading with placards announcing to their countrymen that they would not fight even if their country was invaded. The great word Patriot is coming back. For a long time it was spoken only in a whisper. A real patriot does not like to be described, pointed out or praised. He does not think of what he is but of what he does. How can you tell one? Here are a few: A worker in the shops invented what is now considered the best rifle in the world. He refused to cash in. He gave his invention to his country. His name is Garand . A young man gave up $48,000 a year and the presidency of the New York Stock Exchange-that den of evil! He refused to seek a commission. He went in as a buck private . His name is Martin. Another, the son of the greatest name in modern American military annals also refused to wangle his Senator for a commission and a cushion. His name is Pershing . A prize fighter who never sold out his crowd , risks his title and gives his entire earnings to his buddies. His name is Louis. The manufacturers of gasoline pumps announce they will give to their country all earnings in excess of their average profits for the past five years. Their name is Business Man . A group of Hoosier farmers have pledged themselves to return all government checks while the war is on. Well, the second World War has come and here we are, you and I. You have come fresh from your homes and respective businesses. I have come fresh from a great theater in Washington upon whose boards the performance of a great play has begun. The actors who shape the trend of action and the thin line of the story are a long way off, for they are in Europe, Australia, and the Far East. It is in many ways a rather remarkable play, because the audience . . . the American people . . . cannot ]eave until the show is over, and they cannot control the length of the performance, nor the number of acts. There is one happy circumstance, however, and that is that this great audience of American people is not now divided in opinion. No longer does even a respectable minority regard this great undertaking as a comedy of errors . . . all are united in the common view that it is the world's starkest tragedy . It is the same old story. Lloyd George used to say, "The people who think that they can begin a new era of peace while the Prussian military power is unbroken are laboring under a strange delusion." It is pretty evident to the world that George 's statement is as true today as it was in 1917. The old world still believes in justice, fair play, liberty, and righteousness, but the trouble is it has failed to exercise that eternal vigilance necessary to guard and preserve those ideals . England and France have been nodding, and for those forty winks the world has been paid off in not just a war, or a revolution

Biologyat the University of Richmond e Learning must be advanced as well as perpetuated. Indeed in the last analysis ii is only by advancing learning that it is possible to perpetuate ii. The present faculty of the Department of Biology consists of Professors John Wendell Bailey, Robert Forte Smart and Hugh Irvin Myers. Of the departments of science in the University of Richmond that of biology is the youngest. Instruction in biology in Richmond College was first offered in the fall of 1903. Since that time 4,487 individual students have taken courses in the department; 2,995 boys and 1,492 girls. Of that number 429 were majors in biology; 208 boys and 221 girls. Work in the Department of Biology was first recognized as a major in September, 1921. The work of the department has been done by 13 faculty members and 31 graduate assistants. Many advanced undergraduate students have served as assistants in the laboratori es, the museum, the herbarium and the departmental library. Although the Departm ~ot of Biology of the University of Richmond is not primarily a research department, its students are taui.;ht the principles of investigation and are encouraged to satisfy that int ellectual curiosity of the scientist, young and old. Of the 34 students who have taken graduate work in this department 16 earned the Mast er's degree, most of the others were better preparing themselves for graduate work at some of the larger universities. Since September, 1929-a t which time the present staff came to the University-there have been 22 5 majors in biology. Of that number 109 have entered graduate or professional schools; 46 in pure biology and 63 in medicine. Those who have done graduate work in pure biology have studied at the following institution s : University of Richmond, University of Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute , Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Mass.; Chesapeake Biological Station , Solomon's Island, Maryland ; the Marine Biological Station at Beaufort , N. C.; Johns Hopkins , Brown, Duk e, Wellesley, Yale, Minnesota, Ch icago, Cornell, and Harvard. Seven of our recent graduates have earned their Ph.D. degre es ( six others are nearing the completion of their doctorate work), and 35 have been awarde d their Masters degree from various universities. The following list include s some of those maiors in the department who have done graduate work in the field of pure biology, and whose records we now have. It is to be regretted that we do not have the complete records and photographs of all of our former major students. To those who read these lin es we earnestly ask your cooperation in completing our record of your activities. Carroll Milton Williams, '37; M.A., 1938; Ph.D. , 1941, Harvard.

ALUMNAE ELECT MARTHAELLIOTT '39 , Tire rationing and gas rationing made little difference to Westhampton alumnae when one of the largest groups ever to return at commencement came back for Alumnae Day on May 30th. A large number were present to hear Dr. Martha B. Lucas, dean of students, discuss, "Japanese Philosophy and Religion as a Basis for Understanding the Present Situation in the Far East," at the symposium meeting Saturday morning. She was followed by Anna Riddick, '22, who spoke on, "Some Highlights in the Life of an Interior Decorator." Introduced by Dr. Emily Gardner, '18, as one who made all knowledge contributory to her chosen field of philosophy, Professor Martha Lucas, who entered the faculty of Westhampton College as Dean of Students in September, 1941, made her first address before the alumnae of that College at their annual reunion. She traced with clarity and revealing material the historical evolution of Japanese thought, and gave her hearers deepened insight into the mind and will of contemporary Japan along ethical and philosophical lines. Anna Riddick's, ' 22, skill in fashioning costumes for the wellremembered Florentine Water Pageant given by her class on the Westhampton Lake at their senior commencement when Botticelli's characters and Raphael's lovely madonnas were presented to a large audience in costumes designed by her skill with remarkable fidelity in the famous Renaissance paintings was recalled by Professor Lough in her introduction of Miss Riddick, whose class was holding its twentieth reunion and whose members were present in goodly numbers to hear her witty and inspiring talk. Humorously rehearsing the unpredictable events that turned her from a scholar 's path after receiving her M.A. in History from the University of Chicago and teaching for several years, she revealed the aesthetic judgment , practical skill and perceptive understanding of the American scene that have entered into her work as an interior decorator in Raleigh , N. C. She closed her talk with a magnetic plea for sustaining and developing through the home those democratic ideals that our country now fights to uphold. This morning program in which an outstanding alumna and a member of the faculty discuss their especial interest or a timely topic has become one of the most valued features of Alumnae Day. The roster of those who have spoken in former years is something of a partial If/ ho's If/ ho among alumnae , while the years ahead have rich promise of new endeavors and valued attainments to be shared with Westhampton alumnae in this annual feature of their reunion. The annual luncheon in the Tea Room was in honor of Mrs. Edith Harker , who has been on the Westhampton music faculty for twenty-five years. Martha J. Elliott, ' 39, presented her with a silver bowl on behalf of the Association. Excellent committee reports were made at the afternoon business meeting. Miss Isabel Harris , chairman of the Loan Fund, reported fewer unpaid loans than in any previous year. There is a balance of $606. 71 in the Fund. Marian Wiley, manager of the Bookshop , report ed a net profit of $38 4.96 to the alumnae. The balance in the

Martha Elliott, '39, president-elect and Phyllis Ann Coghill, '41, secretary-elect.

Endowment Fund was voted to be invested in war bonds. The alumnae secretary reported a balance of $416.66 in the Alumnae Fund. Local clubs reported successful years in spite of transportation difficulties. The Association passed the following resolution with a standing vote: "The Westhampton College Alumnae Association in annual meeting, May 30, 1942, affirms its faith in the imperishab c blessing to mankind of truth and freedom and dedicates itself as a group and as individuals to the efforts that shall be necessary to preserve that blessing for our own country and the other peoples of the earth." The climax of the day was the banquet held with the alumni of Richmond College for the first time in ten years. May Thompson Evans welcomed the graduating class into the Association and brought greetings to the group from the Westhampton College Alumnae Association. The address of the evening was made by Dave E. Satterfield, Jr. Westhampton placed the future of the Alumnae Association in the hands of her younger alumnae by electing Martha J. Elliott, ' 39, as national president of the Alumnae Association. She succeeds May Thompson Evans, '21. Miss Elliott taught for a year at Varina High School before coming to .Richmond to be a member of the staff of the First Baptist Church. While in college, she was a member of Tau Kappa Alpha , Phi Beta Kappa, and Mortar Board. During her senior year she was chairman of the honor council. She is the daughter of John Wesley Elliott, '13, and the niece of Ruth Elliott Trice, '17. Dr. Louise Fry Galvin, '26, was named vice-president to succeed Ruth Powell Tyree, '23. Members-at-large elected were: Celeste Anderson O'Flaherty, '15; Mary Ryland Babcock, '32, and Annabel Lumpkin Hessel, '40. Phyllis Ann Coghill, '41, was named Westhampton College Alumnae Secretary to succeed Marian Wiley, '39, who is resigning. Miss Coghill, one of the most attractive members of her class, is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and was editor of the Messenger during her senior year. For the past year she has been a member of t}A faculty of Highland Springs High School. W She is the daughter of Dr. Harvie DeJarnette Coghill, '16.

* *Fund * Cup '17Wins The class of ' 17 celebrated its twenty-fifth birthday by winning the Alumnae Fund Cup, given for having the highest percentage of its members contributing to the Alumnae Fund. The cup, a gift of Elizabeth Hoover, '22, was presented to Anne-Ruth Harris, the class secretary, at the alumnae luncheon on Alumnae Day. Thirty-eight and five-tenths per cent of the members of '17 gave to the fund. Second place went to '16 with 25 % contributing and ' 18 ranked third with 23.1 % . The class of '41, with Helen Martin as its secretary, had the highest number of contributors, 16. This is the second year that the cup has been awarded. Last June · it was won by the class of ' 21 which was celebrating its twentieth reunion. A total of $609.97 has been contributed to the Alumnae Fund, $9.00 less than last year which was a record year.

Trackmen Smash Four Records Four University of Richmond track records tumbled during the 1942 season with two of the new marks going to "Long John" Griffin, the Poquoson giant who will take rank among the greatest weightmen ever developed in Virginia. He pushed the shot forty-eight feet, two and one-half inches to , break his own record to which he had been adding distance all 9 :ason and he hurled the discus 154 feet to break the mark formerly neld by Ensign Bill Morrison, '39. Captain Owen Gwathmey won the two-mile race in the State meet in nine minutes, forty-eight and one-tenth seconds to erase the outdoor record held by the Rev. William Lumpkin, '37, but he wasn't close to Bill's great indoor performance of nine minutes, thirty-one and three-tenths seconds. Captain-elect Dick Thistlethwaite, most versatile man on the team, cleared the bar at six feet and seveneighths of an inch to erase the mark of five feet, eleven and fiveeighths inches set by H . V. (Sonny) Joyce in 1933. The new record breakers take their place among the list of Spider greats on the track and in the field. By universal consent the greatest of them is Lester Tharpe , '27, whose records of 49.8 in the 440; 1 :56 .8 in the 880, and 4:22.6 in the mile still stand. He 's the only man to hold three records. Two others, Griffin and Victor (Turkey) Chaltain, '34, each hold two. Turkey has the high hurdles record of fifteen seconds flat and low hurdles record of twenty-four seconds . Oldest alumnus on the list of record holders is Olin Richardson, '07, whose ten seconds in the century has been tied four times but never surpassed. Others who have done the 100 in ten flat are L. S. Liggan in 1916 , Virgil H. Goode in 1926 , H. F. Hamilton in 1927, and Jack Bristow in 1937. Other record holders are Horace (Speedy) Vail, 22 .2 seconds in the 220; Woodrow W. Clark , '36, 213 feet , 81/7 inches in winning the national junior A.A.U. championship in the javelin; G. Clinton Moore, '42, 12 feet, 8 inches in the pole vault, and "Sonny" Joyce, '34, 2 2 feet , 9 inches in the broad jump.

Al Wheeler, left-handed veteran, had a perfect year with seven victories and no defeats . Another veteran, Walter (Sonny) Wholey at second base, set the hitting pace with .365, and still another veteran, Mac Pitt, Jr., set the defensive pace with no errors during an ent ire season in right field. Wholey, Pitt and Archie Giragosian, little third sacker, have finished their baseball careers but Wheeler has another year of eligibility left and may be in school next session. H e was elected to captain the 1943 nine. Unless Uncle Sam's Army and Navy claims the service of several of the keymen in the sophomore infield the Spiders should turn up a pretty good defensive team next spring, particularly so if Lou Ciola and Bob Houghton , a pair of freshman hurlers , succeed in making the varsity grade.

Harris, '38; Britton, ,~1, Join War Dead As the number of alumni known to be in the armed forces passes the 400- mark , Alma Mater tearfully but proudly acknowledges the loss of two more of her sons who died to make our world a decent place for decent peoples. Sergeant Sidney Harris , '3 8, died in action in the Philippines , March 28th. Aviation Cadet Frank H. Britton , '4 1, killed in an airplane crash, in Mississippi , June 8th. The passing weeks increased almost to a certainty the likelihood

that Lieutenant Walter G. (Windy) Winslow, '36, had perished in the sinking of the heavy cruiser Houst on which was lost in the Battle of Java Sea. He is still listed as "missing." Other University of Richmond men who have died in uniform are Captain Douglas Van Buskirk , '41, of the Royal Canadian Air Force , shot down over Germany; Ensign Charles N. Major, '39& {! killed in action, and First Lieutenant Lee G. Crutchfield , Jr., who died at Fort Ord, Cal. Sergeant Harris ' death came in the month which marked the first anniversary of his entry into the army. At the outbreak of the conflict he was stationed at Fort Stotsenburg in the Philippines. He died fighting on the Bataan peninsula. Frank Britton's tragic crash came within less than a month of July 3d-the date he was scheduled to receive his coveted Army Air Corps wings and the approximate date of his intended wedding to Miss Elizabeth Henry of Hopewell. What caused the accident remains unknown. In the bi-motored bomber were an instructor and four cadets. The plane went into a spin at about 1,000 feet.

Alumni in Action As THE BULLETIN goes to press, the Alumni office has compiled a list of 426 alumni in the armed service. Of this number 255 are in the Army, 165 in the Navy, including the Coast Guard , and six are in the Marines . It must be emphasized that the list is far from complete . The Alumni Office does not always learn promptly of the entrance of Harris, '38 and Britton, '41.

* * * We're Still Spiders! 'Tm a Spider born and a Spider bred, and when I die, I'll be a Spider dead!" So goes the battl e cry. Most good Spid ers are still insisting that they die in the same catego ry. By an overwhelming majority the old grads have voted to keep the Spider banner waving, turnin g down the suggested change to "Rebels." T heir choice proved Richmond alumni to be wise in the ways of ,:k]ore and legend, as well as loyal to the University's unique ,cot. Through the centuries the Spider has been a symbol of the .tient winner, the hard worker who comes out on top . The Spider-Rebel question has been debated on the campus and among alumni since it was first raised by W. F. "T ip" Saunders, ' 13, who suggested chang ing the name to "Co nf ederates ." When th e questions of h ead lin es and songs were raised, the change-backers agreed to switch over to "Rebels" for th e sake of the man behind the copy desk. Long-divided, the stud ent body is not sure which they prefer , but the real decis ion lay with the alumni who have spoken in no uncertain tones. Spiders ever since an incident now shrouded in the mists of fab le, the University alumni will stay that way. Many claim that the nickname started with a sports writer who called a long-legged, long-armed set of Richmond baseballers spiders because of their appearance . Others insist it grew out of a baseball game with William and Mary when the Richmond men beh aved like spiders . That is they caught every fly. Regardless of where and how, the nickname is founded on the rock of tradition. Some of the major relig ious faiths bring us legends about the Spider as man 's fri end. Protestant, Catholi c, Jew, and Mohammeda n all hold the eight-legged beastie dear. When David fled before Saul into th e wilderness of Ki sh, a story tells us that the young giant killer hid in a cave which a friendly sp ider

covered with a web . "He can't be in there ," said the pursuing Saul when he noticed the web across the opening . He dashed on leaving David to crawl out from under the fragile net. Arachne, from whose name comes the scientific word for spider , is noted in Grecian mythology as the only person ever to defeat the great goddess Athena in her specialty, fancy weaving. Athena, angry at the mortal's victory , turned the young maiden into a spider. The never-to-be-forgotten legend of Robert Bruce , the inspired thirteenth century leader of the Scotch Highlanders, and his spider friend cannot be omitted. Six times the gallant Bruce had cast his hard but ill-equipped legions against the well-armed might of Edward I, England's greatest plantagenet. Six times he had been thrown back defeated only to rise again. One night while brooding over the advisability of a seventh attempt, he is said to have noticed a spider in the chimney corner trying to spin a wide web. Six times the animal tr ied for a distant point and six times he failed. Determined, the spider leaped again and the strand was fastened. Soon the web was completed. Bruce saw and did not forg et. The seventh blow of the Scotch armies was struck at Banno ckburn . The English armies fell back in complete disarray and the day was won. To Rob ert Bruce and a patient spider Scotland owed her existence as a nation 1 Richmond 's pine-dad campus is now permeated with the tradition of the Spid er.

A J. M.

Only during times of strife and stress can the strength of the ties of friendship be tested . This acid test is now being applied to our Good Neighbor policy towards South America, and it is more clearly discernible each day that we have built well. It is not hard to imagine what a threat it would be to our safety if to the south of us there were only suspicion, jealousy and bitterness-a veritable invitation to the Axis Powers to open an active second front at our very doorstep . While I have not had an opportunity to judge at first hand the reaction of the ' Latin American countries to our participation in active warfare, the reports in the press and the letters I have received have been quite comforting. We must realize that the change from non-belligerent to belligerent , making it necessary for us to consider first the safety of our own country, has meant for Latin America the dislocation of their economic life and considerable privation and suffering. If it were not that our Government had labored so earnestly and sincerely to establish a feeling of mutual trust and confidence, blame and recrimination for these privations would be heaped upon us. Imagine the atmosphere at the Rio conference had such been the case ! Not many years ago throughout Latin America one often heard the word, "Gr ingo " always pronounced with a certain degree of bitterness and hate. Much too often newspapers carried headlines stressing the words "Ya nkee Imperialism." While the word "g ringo " 11111:,. still part of the Latin American's vocabulary, it no longer carries W_ie sting and disdain it previously did . Instead of "Yankee Imperialism " one is now more apt to hear and see in the newspapers the words "Tio Sam." During a conversation with an important Latin American Government official, shortly before Pearl Harbor, I was very much impressed by the following remark : "I feel that my country would receive incalculable benefit from a program whereby a large percentage of the promising young men who are now in school or beginning their commercial life could spend under instruction in American universities and business estab lishments at least five years during their formative period . "Of course , this idea is not any new one , and as a matter of fact it has been exploited by the Axis Powers for some time , as a mean s of furthering the dissemination of their propaganda. However , I have such confidence in the people of the United States of America that I am certain no effort would be made to influence them in their political or cultural beliefs . On the other hand , merely by example so much that is worthwhile in your country with respect to industrial and technical practices would by contrast with what we have here make a deep impression on these young men. On their return they could not help putting into practice that which they had observed and admired." The important point stressed in thi s observation is that th ere is now confidence in the United States. Those of us who have lived or who have traveled in Latin America during the past decade have noted with pleasure and amazement the changes that have taken place in the attitude of the Latin Am erican towards the "C olossus of th e North." In place of jealousy , fear and misunderstandin g it is now evident that on all sides there is trust and confidence and a feeling of neighborlin ess. A When they mention the "Good Neighbor " in Latin Ameri ca, the Wnajority have in mind Pr esident Roosevelt. Hi s very sincere and earnest effort s to understand their problems and to do all in hi s

power to compensate for the blunders and wrongs committed by the United States of America during the previous century has done more to build up confidence and respect than any other single thin g . President Roosevelt and his capable Department of State, headed by the Honorable Cordell Hull , have been aware of the fact that the average Latin American is much less provincial than .the av~rage citizen of the United States and better informed on mternat1onal affairs. Also, by the same token, the Latin American is more prone to take offense to any slights. Whereas we would have a tenden cy to smile at some gaucher ie of a representative of a Latin American republic, stuck away on the last page of our daily paper, a slighting remark from one of our senators from "Podunk Center " would receive prominence in the newspapers of that country and much bitter comment. the work being done by our President, the State Department and the Coordinator of lnterameri can Aff~irs to educate our own people with respect to these differences m temperament and viewpoint has already proven effective. . There is still a great need for a better understandmg by a broader cross-section of the American people as to the problems which confront the fast growing nations of South Am erica . It is vita lly necessary that we realize that Latin American countries are young but hardy members of the Community of Nations . ~uture respect and admiration will follow from such an understandmgthe only true basis for "Good Neighborliness ."

Reviews Effort of This Nation to Defend Its Inheritance (Continued

from pa.ge 3)

. . . it is infinitely more than that. We are either the victims or the victors of a great crisis of modern civilization, a crisis as acute and as far-reaching as the Reformation or the French Revolution. We cannot hope to stem the tide by merely killing Hitler and Mussolini any more than we might hope to quell a storm by skimming off the whitecaps. That reminds me of a pitfall which lies before us at this very hour. With the tide running not with the passage of German arms in Russia, the Hun is already beginning to lay the groundwork for as easy an exit from the fields of battle as the Armistice brought them in 1918. They may be getting ready to ditch Hitler. The generals have been in and out of the saddle since Germany turned away from further attempts to invade England and marched instead against the Russians . These generals have not lost control. As a matter of fact their power grows as the day draws nigh when Germany will be faced with but two courses. The first is to fight on and on, asking and giving no quarter. The alternative . . . is to cook up a plan, long before Germany's complete defeat is clearly .pparent to the world. They will come forward with some semblance • f generosity and make a bid for peace. Just as they cried out that the World War was all the Kaiser's fault, they are getting ready now to put the blame on somebody. Who will be the goat remains to be seen, Hitler is in a good spot to fit the plans of the wily Prussian militarists. They may have been Nazis . . . indeed, they may still be Nazis , . . but down underneath they are first, last and all the time, Prussian militarists. I sincerely hope that our people and no member of the Congress will be for a moment taken in by a trick which should be familiar to every school child in America. There are so many things to be thankful for. . . , We are grateful for the momentum of our production lines of tanks, planes, guns and ships. Why, the Navy Department abandoned its plans for a shipyard at Richmond because other yards already building the type of ship planed to be built at Richmond were so far ahead of their schedules that all available material needed for those ships was being used by those yards. The attitude of our people was never better. For the first time in the history of this republic complaint is heard in the land if the Congress indicates that the tax burden will not be all that we can carry. They on'ly insist that these revenues be spent on the war effort. Our Atlantic ferry loss is less than one per cent. Bombers and other types of aircraft have been flown to England in great numbers, thus relieving cargo space to other needed commodities in England. No losses at all have taken place in the delivery of flying boats, and it must be remembered that such a magnificent record has been made in the face of difficulties which would have seemed insurmountable in normal times. Our fighter ships are using special equipment which makes it possible for them to be flown to Europe. That's the best news this year. The attitude of our allies is all we could ask for. Nearly five million British workers who ~ave never paid taxes before are now having income tax payments Weducted from their weekly wage. A single man or woman earning $38.00 a week finds only $26.00 in the pay envelope. The other $12.00 has been taken for income tax. A married man with two

childr en pays $6.00 a week out of a salary of $38.00. A man who earns $20.00 a week pays $4.00. Those who earn less than $9.00 a week are tax exempt. Cigarettes carry a tax of 21c a package in England . . . but with all . . . these people are cheerful . . , hopeful . . . courageous. What a lesson for us 1 In the carefree days which have passed us by we have been prone to overlook and to discount the complete freedom with which we have been blessed. We are grimly awake now. We know that in this day when dictatorships rise to plague civilization , and when there is a decreased emphasis on independence, we know , . . that it is history repeating itself once more. Perspective is lent to this problem when we recall that Paul, the Apostle, faced it. He had preached freedom to the Galatians . He found them regimented by a legal code. From the eighth day of their existence until they died they were under the duress of a detailed legalism. And Paul freed them from that. He said, ''Love God and do as you please ," He presented to them a Christ as an inner possession and mentor . . . and then in a little while, as you remember, the Galatians grew tired and weary with their liberty. They grew weary of responsibility and making decisions for themselves, and they yearned for the apparent security of the old tradition. They were careless . Paul wrote them: "For freedom did Christ set us free; stand fast, therefore , and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage. " Few sentences of Holy Writ could be more applicable to our present world. If we are wise this kind of a situation, time and again repeated from Paul's day to our own, and as obvious and menacing, can teach us valuable lessons about freedom. We have been facile in our praise of it. We have taken it too lightly as a priceless boon. We have sung too much with Robert Burns in his poem "Liberty 's Glorious Feast." Our people are now making heroic answer to this charge. Ours is not a resort to force, which so often is a declaration of bankruptcy smothered in martial music, but the effort of a free nation grimly enlisting to defend its inheritance in a spirit as authentic as Lexington and Concord. The breaking down of isolation , this growing oneness of world interest, intensifies the strain of our living, but we find comfort in looking back , . . to know that all the would-be usurpers of the rights of free men have come and gone , while truth has persisted. Freedom has repeatedly raised itself from the dust . . . and fundamental human rights have emerged again and again. Duty . . . that is the watchword for us. In rationing, priorities , in our manner of speaking, in every phase of our daily lives, a word which has lost none of its sublimity since the days of General Robert E. Lee runs like a silver thread. The other day I chanced to come upon Wordsworth's "Ode to Duty," and I thought to myself . . . out of the days of our living we always learn the power of that word. You remember Wordsworth wrote:

[ 19}

Yet being to myself a guide, Too blindly hav e reposed my trust ; And oft , when in my heart was heard Thy timely mandate I deferred


The task, in smoother walks to stray; But duty .... Thee I would serve more strictly if I may. The future belongs to tomorrow. The past is a part of the realm of things that never return . . . and yet . . . so much of it remains a part of our subconscious selves that it is a beacon and a guide. The same old problems are before us, bedecked perhaps in garments that render them hard to recognize. To keep this old world in balance . . . to return men and women to moderation, despite the strange doctrines, false teachings, and fantastic schemes that trouble this age . . . is a task which is set before each socceeding generation, that they may write for themselves the record of the future and so spend their hours today that tomorrow may welcome its memories. When the conflict is over and each and every one of us has done his very best, we shall not with bowed heads be dismally saying: How green was my valley. Erect, victorious, we shall be saying with the pride that comes with great effort and unselfish sacrifice: How green is my valley. There is comfort in knowing that with great decisions comes great vision. Our country is not just a name . . . it is a living force. . . . Our country is not a sentiment . . . it is a vital engine of righteousness. We have seen, we have learned ... we know. For great decisions, greater visions, greatest opportunity . . . for these we thank the God of our fathers. Let us say with Rupert Brooke as he went gallantly to his death at Gallipoli: Thank God he has matched us with this day! 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111,11,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

the natives sit BETWEEN

the humps .. . and ride in comfort.

In America, most of the people ride ON the humps of their transportation facilities- - not because there is no comfortable place in which to ride between the morning and evening traffic humps-- but because many people are geared to occupations which require them all to start and stop work at about the same time, and others, out of thoughtlessness or by force of habit, allow themselves 11 too, to get into the traffic jams of the morning and evening "rush hours. They ride ON the humps when they could just as well ride more comfortably IN BETWEEN the humps .. .

i( i(

Ride in comfort BETWEEN the hours of 9 :30 A . M . and 4 P. M . Leave the humps for those who MUST ride on them.
