1 In Research Movement
Wisconsin University Professor
Announces Results of Survey
In Book Just Off the Press.
Announcing the results of a survey
of Research Work in American col
leges and universities in a book just
off the press, Dr. F. A. Ogg, professor
of political 'science in the University
of Wisconsin, says that "by common
agreement the leadership in the new
research movement in th.e South is
traceable to the University of North
Dr, Ogg made the survey for the
American Council of , Learned So
cieties. The survey has just been
brought out; in book . form entitled
"Research in the Humanistic and So
cial Sciences," copies of which have
just been received here.
Citing "the fact that research has,
in general been backward in the South
as a'section mainly due to the rela
tive lack f money since the Civil
War, Dr. Ogg's survey points out
that of late, however, there have been
evidences of a stirring of interest, and
reports of various activities and pro
jects have attracted the attention of
scholars in other sections.
"By common agreement," he says,
"the leadership in the new research
movement in the South is traceable
to one institution, and to certain men
and women in it, namely, the Uni
versity of North Carolina.;
f'The explanation of this . leader
ship," he says, "seems to lie in an
unusually keen appreciation of the
possibilities of service to the. people
of the State, in the presence in the
faculty of many vigorous, ambitious,
and productive scholars, and in lib
eral support of research interests by
administrative authorities, facilitated,
do doubt, by notable economic and
industrial development . which the
State has of late experienced.
"More specifically,' North Carolina
calls for special mention as a center
of humanistic and -social research
because (1) it has deliberately cre
ated an atmosphere on its own cam
pus which is a challenge to research,
stimulating it in many ways, among
them by devoting - yearly a hundred-
page issue of the "University Record"
to a survey, by departments, of re
search, in progress; (2). it has
launched and in 'part carried out a
series of local surveys in rural social
economics probably as well conceived
and fruitful as anything of the kind
undertaken anywhere else in the
world; (3) it has brought into exis
tence an institute for Research in So
cial Science which is well financed and
capable of carrying" out important
projects; (4) it has supplied the im
petus for the conferences, already
mentioned, out of which may eventu
ally arise a Southern Social Science
Research Council; and (4) it makes
liberal provision for publication of
the products of research, and has
founded the University- of North
The University has been interested
in research for more than a century,
and has made noteworthy contribu
tions in various fields.
The graduate school, however, of
which Dr. James F. Royster is now
Dean, has shown its greatest prog
ress in the .lasffew years. Enroll
ment for the fall quarter was 186,
to set a new record., Enrollment for
the same quarter last year was 168;
five years ago the enrollment was 90,
illustrating the rapid growth.
Twenty states and 81 institutions
are represented in, students, compris
ing this year's Graduate Schooland
72 of the number already have their
master's degree and are working
toward doctorates. . .

By H. J. GALLAND
Federal prohibition officers
have' invaded the University cam
pug in search- of contraband li
quor, as a result of the recent
outpouring in the press of the
state over the .. liquor situation
here. An officer using under
ground methods of securing his
evidence, attempted to gather suf- .
ficient incriminating proof to
back up the charges made.
He appeared Thursday after
noon at one of the fraternity '
houses on the Hill. He was in
troduced by one of the members,
who was a distant relative of his,
but did not know his real pur
pose. ; . - ' '
Well-dressed, with a pleasing
manner and the air of a bona fide
college student, the revenue offi
cer fraternized, with the boys, in
gratiatingly gaining their confi
dence. During this time he was
sleuthing in private in the best
detective fiction manner.
Just before the .Carolina-Duke
game the collegiate cop casually
suggested getting some liquor to
a number of boys at the fraterni
ty house. ...None of them wished
any for themselves, but they were
the local bootleggers. The two
! students went with the officer
and secured the liquor, which was
paid for by the government agent,
presumably with government
money. Nothing was said, to' the
students. v .
At the fraternity house at
which he was a guest, the officer
calmly proceeded to an upper
. floor, and seating himself at a
typewriter,' wrote out the . evi
dence he had just collected and
pasted it on the incriminating
jar of wet goods. He made no '
attempt to hide the jar or con
ceal his real identity. When
, asked the meaning of his action,
he displayed his badge. -
After the game, he was asked
to leave the fraternity house
Claiming that he saw no reason
for ill-feeling, since any honest
citizen should be proud to help
uphold the laws of the land, he
was indignant at this treatment,
The request was repeated, and
the officer left, stating that he
would return as soon as the busi
ness which then occupied him was
finished. His return is awaited
with interest in many, quarters of
