ODUM COLLABORATES IN NEW
BOOK ON SOCIAL RESEARCH
Crawford's Recent Statement in American Mercury Borne out as
Commercial Field University Professor's Fifth Book is Is
sued Under Joint Editorship with Dr. Katherine Jocher.
It was pointed out in a recent af tide appearing in the Ameri
can Mercury, reviewed by this paper, that the Univeristy of
North Carolina Press, among others, was pioneering in a publica
tions field that would soon be cultivated by commercial publishers.
The works of Dr. Howard W. Odum, Director of the Institute for
Research in Social Science, were' presented as examples of the
type of books that would have a large commercial value in the
near future. '
This statement, by N. A. '
Crawford, was truthfully made,
for Dr. Odum, in collaboration
with Dr. Katherine Jocher, who
is Assistant Director of the In
stitute, has recently had a fifth
book published by a prominent
metropolitan eompany. The
volume, "An Introduction to So
cial Research," deals with im
portant problems concerning the
fields, present trends, develop
ments, methodology, and pro
cedure of modern research.
Reaction expressed by num
erous contemporaries of the au
thors' indicate that this and
other books by the University
scientists will have a promising
future, in view of the fact that
the social sciences are on the
eve of still greater develop
ment." 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.
Among the first comments
by leading social scientists is an
especially significant statement
by Wesley C. Mitchell, head of
the Department of Economics
at Columbia University. He
says: "The book will prove
widely useful in that it assem
bles in orderly sequence a great
variety of stimulating sugges
tions on how to work."

versity of Chicago, speaking of
this timely volume, also declares

Farris Urges Students to Vote
and Cooperate in Reviving
Carolina Spirit Which Has
Been so Strong in Past.
POLLS IN Y BUILDING
"ray, ray, ,rah, rah," yelled
the cheerleaders down in Kenan
stadium Saturday, "ray, ray,
rah rah," whispered the stu
dents of the University, and
when whispered is mentioned
no reference is made to any
thing quite so loud as a stage
whisper. 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. The names of
those men follow in the order in
A 4. -LI 1 -1 1 1
which they were nominated :
Jack Barrett, Soph.; George H.
Biggs, fresh. ; Howard Henry,
Junior; Lloyd Bass, Soph.; Al
len Crowson, Fresh.; Paul Car
ter. ; Soph.; George Brown,
Frosh. ; Sam Glaberson, fresh.
All these men have been faith
fully working with Peyton Ab
bott over the apparently dead
body of the Carolina spirit for
the past week; and it is urged
by all concerned that each mem
ber of the student body cast his
vote at the booth in the Y. M. C.
A. building or at the one in Ger
rard hall.
The campus leaders urge that
every student votes today in or
der that something might be
done to get under way some or
ganized plan to revive the fast
disappearing thread of life that
binds Carolina spirit to this
world.
Faculty Orchestra
Begins Rehearsals
The university is unique
among non-musical colleges in
having among its faculty mem
bers a complete concert orches
tra. This orchestra was formed
last year among faculty men who
enjoyed playing music together.
Despite the fact that some of its
members . had not played for
years the organization made re
markable" progress. Those who
attended the Playmaker produc
tions will remember the agree
able change from the phono
graph music to that of the fac
ulty musicians. The excellent se
lections accompanying the for
est theatre production last
spring were enjoyed by all.
The musical tendencies among
the faculty are not limited to
any one particular branch of
learning. The schools of law,
medicine, applied science, com
merce, education and the aca
demic school being represented
by members from the depart
ments of romance languages,
mathematics, english, chemis
try, bacteriology, ecummuwo,
law, public welfare and the ex
tension division.
