This Bureau, which has its office at
204 South Building, for the past num
ber of years has been furnishing def
inite data to students who are intend
ing to go into the professional world.
The department has in its files infor
mation concerning practically every
occupation into which graduates of
the University ordinarily go. It also
maintains contacts with a large num
ber of business and other organiza
tions which employ college men from
time to time. The Bureau in the past
has helped many graduates select and
obtain the work into which they have
gone. To students who have already
selected a vocation, the department
will be a valuable aid in bringing to
their attention certain information
concerning that branch of work.
A part of the work of this service
is to acquaint the students with in

Lantern Slides Used to Illustrate
Lecture Delivered by
Conference Officer Says Boys
Need Not Be Discouraged
By New Ruling.
"The rumor that only graduates of
accredited high and preparatory
schools will be permitted to enter con
ference institutions is erroneous," ac
cording to a statement issued here last
week by Dr. A. W; Hobbs, vice pres
ident and district representative of
the Southern Conference.
Dr. Hobbs recently attended a meet
ing of the conference in Lexington,
Kentucky, and states that the er
roneous report was probably circu
lated by people who misundlerstood
the rulings made by the Conference.
Dr. S. V. Sanford, president of the
Conference, introduced a motion
which was later amended to read that
a student must be either a graduate
-- of an accredited preparatory or high
school, or present 15 Carnegie units
from such an institution or present 15
Carnegie units from some recognized
examining board. i
According to the University pro
fessor, press despatches from Lexing
ton carried the story of the motion
as it was introduced by Dr. Sanford,
but failed to carry a follow-up story
on the motion as it was finally passed
in its amended form which was rad
ically different from the original.
"I understand that a large num
ber of high and preparatory school
boys in this and adjoining states who
do have the equivalent of 15 Carnegie
units but do not have a diploma have,
been very much discouraged by such
reports, and I am anxious that' they
be corrected," Dr. Hobbs said.
"In some parts of the world peo
ple are still living in the Stone Age,"
Dr. Jiri V. Danes, professor of geol
ogy, asserted Friday night in Ger
rard Hall. He spoke under the aus
pices of the University Lecture Bu
reau, and his lecture was on the sub
ject of "Some Problems of Human
In certain parts of the world, not
ably Australia and Oceania, foreign
influence has been kept out by natural
barriers that have kept the native
tribes isolated from the rest of the
world for centuries. As a result their
development has been retarded great
ly, and they are still living in four
distinct ages of the Stone Age.
"Some of these people, however,
have developed without outside aid,"
he said. "The Polynesians, notably,
have developed a civilization of a fair
ly high social organization in spite
of the fact 'that they are still living
in the Stone . Age." '
Lantern slides made from pictures
taken in the islands of the South
Seas and in remote sections of Tas
mania and Australia, were employed
by Dr. Danes to illustrate his lecture.
"These pictures illustrate the fact
that while isolation is purely a bio
logical problem with plants and ani
mals, it has also become a sociological
problem with members of the human
species," he declared.
Dr. Danes is making a tour of this
country and is lecturing at a number
of the larger colleges and universities.
In connection with his tour he is mak
ing a study of certain limestone areas
known as "karst areas." While at the
University he was the guest of Dr.
Collier Cobb, head of the Geology De
partment,, and made talks to several
of Dr. Cobb's classes Friday.
The University of North Carolina
has recently entered into an agree
ment with the merchants of Chapel
Hill in regard to the student check
situation, it was announced 'yester
day "from the office of the Dean of
students. This action has been tak
en -as a result of the "little improve
ments shown in the bad check prob
lem during the past several months.
Action was taken last fall by the
bank of Chapel Hill to lessen the
Uiumber of worthless checks. A charge
of fifty cents was placed on each
check returned. This action, it is
understood, solved the trouble only to
a small degree, and the number of re
turned checks .was little diminished.
The Dean of Student's office in con
junction with the Student Councilis
applying the same system of discipline
that it has been useing for the past
two years. It is stated that the theory
of this system was to protect the cre
dit of the majority of students not
abusing their checking privileges by
subjecting those who do to punish
ment. -It seems that less than ten
per cent of the University students
are at fault in having their checks re-r
The conclusion arrived at by the
bad check department of the Univer
sity's Discipline system is that a more
uniform standard action on the part
of the local merchants in regard to
the cashing of student checks would
improve the situation.
The following agreement has been
brought about between the University
and the merchants of Chapel Hill.
1. The- University upon its part
agrees to take the initiative in the
enforcement of payment if student's
checks are returned. No student will
be allowed to remain in the University
who fails to make good any returned
check given in the University com
munity which includes the town of

Educator Tells Disadvantages
and Advantages of Teach
The three departments of the
Y. M. C. A. Cabinet met last night
in a joint assembly in the Y club-
room to discuss the coming lectures
of Sherwood Eddy, renowned author
ity on world affairs. Mr. Eddy will
give a series of six addresses at the
University commencing Friday and
continuing through a period of three
days. This is the speaker's second
appearance here. a
In 1923 Mr. Eddy-gave several well
received talks on Conditions Arising
out of the World War. He has se
lected a group of present-day topics
for his discourses at the University
this week. Friday morning and
night-he will speak in Memorial Hall.
There -will be no eleven o'clock
classes in the morning. Saturday
morning and evening he will lecture
in Gerrard Hall, and Sunday at the
Methodist Church. Sunday evening

those students who have teaching in
mind as a vocation, Prof. Andrews
warned them that their efforts would
be hopelessly futile if they did just
exactly what was required of them.
and no more. s '
Prof. Andrews, who is President of
the State Association of Teachers
and Director of Public Instruction a
High Point, was invited to speak to
the students in accordance with the
new plan of programs for the chape'
exercises. The talk on Monday morn
ing was the first of a series in this
Prof. Andrews quoted statistics to
show that education has made a great
leap in the last decade, judging from
enrollment, finances, and the increas
ed length of the school term. He
stated that the idea of poor salaries
in the teaching profession was a fool
ish one, backing his statement by ac
tual figures, showing that High School
principals received salaries ranging
from $2,200 to $5,000, and that super
intendents received, from $5,000 to
$iu,uuu, some ot tnem running as
high as $25,000.
Equipment to Be Issued Today
at Emerson Field Store; Men
Urged to Report.
Coach Bob Fetzer issued a call yes
terday for all prospective football
candidates for the 1928 winter foot- x
ball season to begin winter practice.
Over a hundred letters were sent out
to old men by Coach Fetzer, and he
is" making an open call through the
press for all who are interested in
football, and who hav3 not had any
previous experience in the game.
The purpose of this year's winter
practice is to give all university stu
dents training so that they may be
better prepared for next fall playing.
New men are welcomed, even those'
who know not one iota of football
science and tactics, and who have
never had any previous gridiron ex
perience. The fundamentals of the
game will be thoroughly introduced.
This plan for winter practice is : ar
ranged especially for new and inex
perienced men, and gives each man
an opportunity at football that he will
not get if he waits until the fall.
Candidates for winter practice are.,
to report at the Emerson Field Sta-
dium store room this morning from
10:30 to 12:00 a. m., or from 2:30 to
4:30 for equipment. Officials state
that it is absolutely necessary that all
candidates report for their equipment
at one of these periods.
This plan for winter practice shows
that the coaches, who are backed by
the Athletic Club, the' Monogram club,
and the University as a whole, are
striving to make the 1928 football
squad the largest and best yet.
Coaches and sports writers agree that
the 1928 football schedule for the
University is not only the' best, but
also the hardest faced by a Tar Heel
team in years. Coach Fetzer says:
"The growing strength of our com
petitors, the renewal of the game with
Georgia Tech, and the addition of the
Harvard game for next season means
that we shall have to utilize and de
velop to the highest possible degree
every bit of the University's material
Practice will be held each afternoon
in Kenan Memorial stadium.

check that such check is properly
made out. .
3. To conscientiously discourage the
use of counter checks by U. N. C.
students, particularly those counter
checks that are printed with a bank's
name upon them.
4. Never to- take a check from a
U. N.' C. student simply "as evidence
of his obligation to pay money when
they know or have good reason to be

by a sufficient deposit in the bank
upon which it was drawn to cover it.

of the Junior-Senior Council, presided
