IHR To Present Six Speakers
During First Week In April
By Fredi Flagler
In a search for a social emphasis
program which would have sufficient
scope and depth to capture the atten
tion and thought of the, entire Caro
lina campus, the YMCA Cabinet in
1926 hit upon the idea of a barrage
of speakers instead of scattered pro-'
grams along the same ,neia.
This idea transformed into reality
in 1927 at which time' the first Insti
tute of Human Relations held sway
for a successful week with seventeen
guest speakers conducting forums and
conferences. Since 1927 there have;'
been six of such week-long events
staged in Chapel Hill. . The last was
held in 1943. '
