Social research, in which Drs. Odum and Jocher are so well informed, is the key to that development. For these reasons their work is a volume to be read by every student, teacher, and director of re search in any of the social sciences.

Kike Kyser's ghost awoke and hovered over the field in mental anguish. "Are these Carolina men?" he asked himself, "the men who so spirit edly yelled a few years ago with such lusty lungs as to cause the inhabitants of Durham to won der at the terrific thunder storm taking place in Chapel Hill?" "Oh, yes," says Captain Ray Farris, president of the student body, "it's the same crowd; but the spirit of Carolina is sadly lacking in livelihood," or words to that .effect in an interview Tuesday morning. -rt-t uie regular inapei period Tuesday morning president Far ris introduced to the student body the men who they had nominated for the office of chief cheer leader.
