nothing of the whole trend of litera
ture and little' of its development
from age to age. In history, one
studies the European background of
American history, development of the
English constitution, the French Revo-
mtion; but here again what does one
learn of the whole?
There is a place, however, for these
piece-meal courses. After one has
studied some outline of the whole,
further, study naturally takes up
smaller parts for detailed examina
tion. But first, let there be given in
struction that more fully covers' the
entire width and breadth of the field
Before the freshman is requiredto
sign up for' physics or chemistry
(each of which is probably utterly
unfamiliar to him) let him have an
opportunity of at least , one course
which surveys the entire . realm ' of
science, noting both the 1 common
background and the differences among
the divisions. Let him have a course
which presents to him the underlying
philosophy of history and . traces its
development from prehistoric times
up to today. Let him have a course
which will implant in his mind the
field of literature as a whole; then
into this orderly pattern he can fit
the scattered bits of knowledge picked
up in later -study.
Such a series of general survey
courses would, furnish a most valu
able basis for all advanced work, , a
strong foundation for that which is
to come. Now we learn only in part;
"but when that which is perfect shall
come, then that which is in part shall
be done' away."

In Pieces 1
A favorite object of attack in our
present educational system and
rightly so is the breaking up of
knowledge into minute divisions and
the absolute lack of any connecting
thread to hold these divisions to
In the field of science one student
takes physics 1-2 and' learns a smat
tering of physics; another elects
chemistry and receives instruction in
that particular branch. So it is with
geology, botany, zoology, and psy
chology. But unless one majors in
science, what does he learn about
that vast background common to all
the sciences and what does he know
of the intimate correlation of one
science to all others?
The situation is similar in litera-
ture and in history. One course deals
with Victorian novelists, another with
old English, and a third with Shakes
pearean drama. Undoubtedly each is
worthy of a full term's study and
more; but it is obviously apparent
-that while the student busies him
self with thee various bits, he learns
courageous organizations - are an
asset to .any campus., An organiza
tion may have the highest ideals pos
sible and be all set to proceed upon
a path of constructive work, but if it
lacks courage, there is no hope.
Too few of the projects : of the
world are lost before they start,
merely because the organizers failed
to keep going in the face of public
ridicule and defeat. So it is with a
special feeling of commendation that
we note the advent of a group who
have the courage of their convictions
or are not afraid to be unusual.
Early in the fall quarter the Red
Head Club got busy. They were a
group of boys who had a special dis
tinction and were proud of it. All
through their lives they had, perhaps,
been taunted and joked about, and al
ways that colorful and hateful nick
name had followed them. Did they
mind it? - Not in the least. They or
ganized a club to capitalize it. Great
things were expected of them. They
took themselves seriously, and invited
Dr. Dashiell of the Psychology de
partment to speak to them on "The
Psychology of Red Hair."
Good enough. They might have
risen to heights with their organiza
tion. We can see them charging huge
amounts for their services as a chorus
in college musical comedy .productions
or revues. What hot stuff they could
make of their numbers! We can see
them as a special cheering squad at
co-ed basketball games, the cynosure
of all eyes, the heroes of the hour,
We can see them oh, in any number
of advantageous positions.
And now, apparently, they have
quit. We hear no more about them
btartmg out with such courageous
recklessness, they have mired in
sea of lassitude. Re-organize, Red
Jtieads 1 . 1 he campus - needs more
color. We are young and sometimes
foolish, so let us be collegiate while
we may. There is little enough fun
in life as it is. Reorganize, then. The
Tar Heel will give you all the support
in its power, and report all your do
ings. And keep up your courage.

Modern Church Sermons
Divorce.- companionate marriage,
the American home, book reviews and
baptism were discussed recently in
Kansas City pulpits. These certainly
would not have been church topics
fifty or a hundred years ago. Does
this indicate progression oe retrogres
sion in our civilization? In any event
it represents a radical change in our
ideas concerning religion , and the
in the days of our mothers and
fathers, church sermons were based
strictly on texts taken from the Bible,
Be good and go to Heaven, be wicked
and suffer eternal torment," was one
subject upon which all ministers
preached to their congregations. But
today, divorce and the - American
home, and even books, are the sub
jects which ministers talk over with
their congregations. Instead of'us-
ing texts from the Bible they use
quotations from Shakespeare. This
revolution in the church, which is
considered by . so many to be an im
provement, has been made necessary
by the conditions - of modern life.
People no longer believe in the old
fashioned heaven and hell and will
not listen to dull sermons on the. sub
ject. They go to church for practical
guidance in their everyday lives.
Divorce and companionate marriage
were hot problems a century ago.
But they are vital problems in the
complex world of today, and it is a
good feign that churchmen as well as
writers and other men who seek to
mould the public mind, are striving
for a solution and a remedy. What
ever may be the objections to these
new topics for church sermons, they
must be credited with filling .our
churches again. Daily Kansan.

Too Beautiful Co-Eds
At Emory University
An unique explanation for the lo
grades of the dowrPtrodden freshmen
at Emory University is advanced by
the Emory Wheel, the weekly student
publication, which says that the co
eds are too beautiful.
One-eighth of the entire student
body is on probation and the Emory
Wheel took it upon itself to investi
gate the situation.
Several years ago there were no
fair co-eds present at the the Uni
versity and the frosh had nothing to
detract their minds from their study,
ing and sailed through their courses
Today there are sixty-three co-ed3
at the University, and to make things
more interesting, all are beautiful.
To make things worse for the boys,
the girls are-allowed to study in the
same library. At least, the boys are
supposed to study. However, it
doesn't affect the girls so badly be
cause they all make high grades.
