PLAY THE GAME, FOLLOW THE BALL, TAKE THE LONG VIEW, AND BUILD A FINER STATE

ADDRESS DELIVERED AT THE DEDICATION OF MEMORIAL HALL CHAPEL HILL, N. C.

OCTOBER 12, 1931

Mr. President, Members of the Student Body, University
Alumni, Ladies, and Gentlemen:

On behalf of the state of North Carolina it gives me profound satisfaction as governor to present to the University of North Carolina this splendid building to serve as a place of meeting for the faculty, students, and friends of this, the oldest of all state institutions. This building is not the largest on the campus, it did not cost the most money. But it serves in a way that is satisfactory as a Memorial Hall to keep perpetually before us the names of the heroic dead of the greatest institution in North Carolina. Under this roof will be quickened the finer impulses, and under it will swell and tug the ambitions of young men who in the future will carry the load and face the responsibilities of this commonwealth--some of those names will in another day be chiseled on other tablets to be imbedded in these walls and to become a part of the heroic dead of this institution.

Mr. President and Mr. Hill, North Carolina presents this building to you and to this institution in the firm faith that as years go on its investment made here will increase in value ten fold, fifty fold, and, before the course of this institution is run, an hundred fold. North Carolina gives this building and gives it freely. In the name of all the people of the State I present this Memorial Hall, Mr. President, to be used in the service of the highest and finest task the people of a democracy can undertake--the growing of men.
