'O those who have made the history

and have gone forth to seri'e as a back-
ground and a staunch support for our
Alma Mater —

Out (fAlumrd

The Class of ig^y dedicates this, the
fourteenth volume of the Chanticleer, in
token of our respect for the traditions
they have left behind them, and out of
love for the University they have
budded here.

"He served the institution throush every sta^e iif its
(Ie\'el(>p!nent and in every sort of \va\' — as loval son, as
patron, as benefactor, as trustee for thirty-four years,
and as president of the Board of Trustees for ten vears.
He deserves to live ainouK those who, throu^li guid-
ance and inspiration of the young, have most effec-
tively served their day and generation."

Dr. William P. Fi:w.

"In most fields of service he «as accorded the hinli-
est honors his associates could confer; the exceptions
were, where in accordance with one of the rules of his
life, he declined to bid and work for his own promo-
tion. It was his habit, however, not to run from re-
sponsibilities. If he belie\'ed he could serve to the
good of his fellow men he gladly accepted responsibil-
ity. He found joy in service to the last . . . Next
to his home, Joseph Ci. Brown's intense pride and de-
votion went out to Puke University ... So deepl\'
impressed is his influence upon the life of Duke I'ni-
versity that neither time nor changing conditions can
easily efface that stalwart personality whose leadership
we still accept with gratitude and even a deeper sense
of security." Colonel John F. Bruton.

".■Mma Mater looks to all of her sons and daughters
to measure up in the scheme of life to the highest ideals
which she sought to inculcate in their very souls when
they were students. Joseph (jill Brown, ex-'75, em-
bodied all of the finest qualities that one looks for in
the True Son, and more, he lived a life of such ex-
emplary conduct and achie\'ement that true inspira-
tion is to be derived from a study of his life"

JN this titinttltuous age, ivhen every thought is
fofuseil diligently ufion the future, there is lit-
tle time for reinitiiscetiee ; hut there ivill come a day
when you will pause in the onivard rush and gaze
backivard across the panorama of years you have
left behind. There ii'ilt come to you the realization
that the days you spent at Duke University consti-
tute the most delightful years of your life. And
while you are indulging in these fond memories, it
is our earnest hope that you ivill not he unmindful
of those Tvho have preceded us and have made pos-
sible all the wonderful opportunities xve found
awaiting us at our beloved institution.

In order more easily to bring to your mind the
heritage we have received from the past, ive have
taken as the decorative theme of the IQzy Chanti-
cleer the history of North Carolina, for inseparably
linked ivith this history are the lives of those to
whom ive oiue so much — those uho have made our
present possible.

When, in either the near or distant future, you
turn through the pages of this book, may it bring to
you both memories of an enjoyable college career,
and at least some feeling of latitude to those pio-
neers in education , government , and business ivho
have handed us the torch iL'ith the expectation that
iL'e carry it as loftily as have they.



/N Jvhich the reader is allowed to visit those
structures of brick (^^d stone, and to see
the beauties of that campus in the limits of
■which the things this chapter attempts to show
him had their development, and to }(now those
who are directing our college's progress.

Jack has made the acquaintance
and won the friendship of every
one on the campus by the force
of his ptTsonality alone. He has
not gone out for many honors,
but he Is as well knfiwn and as
well liked as the official leaders.

His seliolastic reputation is not
based upon hieh erades. but upon
his ability to secure the highest
possible grades for the least pos-
sible work. His main activities
have been so'-lai, and he has add-
ed much to Duke's social life dur-
ing hlB stay here.
