By Psychologists; Sales
Over 10,000.
Professor A. M. Jordan's lat
est book, Educational Psychol
ogy, which was published in the
spring of 1928, is having phe
nominal success, it sales having
already far surpassed the mark
set for successful modern text
Dr. Jordan, professor of edu
cational psychology in the uni
versity of North Carolina, is de
clared by many to have written
one of the best text books of its
kind that has been published.
Educational Psychology - has met
with genuine approval of more
teachers and students than any
other text in the field of edu
cational psychology. , Published
late in the spring of 1928, its
success was immediate and wide
spread and there is every indi
cation that its crest has not yet
been reached. Already more than
180,000 copies have been sold.
The book was first written and
used by Professor Jordan in his
classes at the university ir ': n.

he had it published and its suc
cess has been assured. Dr. Jor
dan has, not relied on the ma
terial gathered from old sources
but has secured new material
from entirely new sources arid
he gives that as one of the main
reasons for its success.
The division of the book into
four parts has - aided materially
in the teaching of it and has in
creased its popularity greatly.
More than 100 schools, colleges
ahd universities'throughout the
country have adopted this book
and all have praised it.
J. J. Hudson of Western Re
serve university says : "I am
very favorably impressed with
Jordan's organization arid treat
ment of the various topics in
this field, and particularly the
practical application he makes of
the principles of psychology in
meeting actual problems of
In writing this book Dr. Jor
dan has experimented to a large
degree with some of his classes
in: educational psychology in the
university and thus accounts for
the directness of style in: which
it is written. Dr. Jordan, as
far as possible, eliminated the
use of technical terms unfamil
iar to the student.
Perhaps the most thorough
criticism of this book is by
Stuart M Stoke in the Journal
of Applied Psychology when he
states that "Professor Jordan
has written a readable education
psychology an achievement of
no mean Drooortion in a field
which bristles with statistical
and technical studies. Problems
of learning, how to study, and
transfer of training are well
handled. . . One particularly
commendable feature is the in
clusion of so much material of
recent date. In a field as much
in flux as educational psychology
this is especially desirable. The
chapters are well summarized
and exercises are also provided.
In brief, the author has used
educational psychology in writ
ing educational psychology."
In addition to this book Dr.
Jordan, has written A Children's
Interest in Reading y which was
published, in a revised form, by
the university of North Carolina
press in 1926.

Chattanooga Prof essor Tells
What Makes the Yo-Yo 6 Yo'
Mechanism of Recent :Fad Is
Explained by Dr. D. W. Cor
nelius, Doctor of Physics.
What makes the yo-yo "yo?"
That is the question that seems
to be worrying many of-the fol
lowers of this latest and popular
fad that has recently struck the
country. 'Torque," says Dr. D.
W. Cornelius of Chattanooga
and he ought to know for he is
professor of physics. If you
don't know wJiat a yo-yo is, you
at least know what makes it
"yo." . ;
A yo-yo is a little disc-like
spool, attached by its axle to a
string which is ; perhaps a yard
long. To make it "yo" the
string is wound about .the axle
of the spool. Then if you know
how, you can drop the spool and
watch it climb back up the
string. If you know your "yo
yo" you can throw it straight
out," over your , head, loop-to-loop,
and perform many slick
tricks. No matter where you
throw it, always the spool climbs
back up the string. -
Yo-yo is the fad of people of
every class and station. College
presidents,, professors, politi
cians, bootblacks, soda clerks,
newsboys, all have their yo-yo's ;
they range from the simple dime
ones to more expensive jeweled
ones. -All have the same prin
ciple in common; they "yo-yo"
alike. ; v , : -

Speaker "at Chapel Exercises
.Warns Frosh against Spend
ing Too Much Time on Any
One Thing. V v
"My son, when you get to
college look out for your mental
and spiritual health, and in the
time that remains study," these
are a counterpart of the words
used by Theo. Roosevelt at his
son's entrance to college.
This morning in chapel Mr.
Sprinkler brought to light, the
fact that very few, if any, of
the students at the university
need be warned about anything
along that line.
Continuing, he said, "In 1870
Cecil Rhode entered Oxford -university,
but in a few months he
was forced to leave because: of
his health. He went to South
Africa, regained his health, and
while there made a great deal
of money in the. diamond , mines.
He then returned to school, but
again was forced to leave in
search of his lost health. He
regained it and returned to
school, and during his entire ed
ucation this . process was re
peated many times.
"This man through his great
wealth founded what is -known
as the Rhodes Scholarship fund,
which is awarded to those - stu
dents who have recorded the
most well-balanced and impres
sive activities during their col
lege career. "'
Mr. Sprinkler brought out
these facts in order to remind
eyery man intthe class of '33, as
well as. the entire school, that
they should begin Balancing their
college lives at the earliest pos
sible moment.
At the close of the period the
freshmen received a shock that
was expected to unbalance them
all mentally. There will be no

Coaching School To
Be Held By Ashmore
The meeting held Thursday
morning in Peabody room 6 re
sulted in a decision to hold the
basketball coaching class at
chapel period during , the fall
quarter. ' Coach Ashmore ex
plained that he could devote his
time to the work better during
the fall sthan the winter or
spring, since he is tied up with
the varsity basketball program
in the winter and baseballin the
spring. The first lecture on
basketball will be held next
Tuesday, October 8th, at 10 :30
o'clock in Murphey 110. All who
are interested in taking this
course should report for the
first lecture. Classes will be
held on Tuesday, Wednesday,
and Thursday of each week at
chapel period and the laboratory
work will be given in the tin can
two evenings each week. , Any
man in college who expects to
teach next year is invited to
take these courses. There is no
credit given" for the work, but
it is free.
The coaches deserve commen
dation for their: willingness to
cooperate in preparing the men
for the work of high school
coaching, and the men who ex
pect to teach in high schools
next year will be more likely to
get better positions if they are
trained to take charge of some
branch of atnletics. The Teach
er's Bureau of the school of
education states that a man'who
can handle a team is never hard
to place. .

Copies of By-laws and Policies
Of Executive Committee to
Be Sent All Fraternities.
In order to familiarize the
fraternities and new men on the
campus with the policies of the
German club and its by-laws, the
executive committee of the club
decided at its last meetinsr to
have copies of the by-laws and
policies printed and distributed
among the fraternities in Chapel
The committee is composed of
four officers of the club and five
members appointed by the pres
ident. This committee with the
faculty committee appointed by
Dr. Chase regulates all dances
given in Chapel Hill.
The members of the commit
tee this year are Charles Wad
dell, chairman ; George Race,
president of the German club;
Julian Palmore, vice-president;
Bob Zealy, secretary and treas
urer; Will Yarborough, assist
ant secretary and treasurer, and
George Sanders, Gordon Gray,
Dick Winborne and Travis
Brown. The faculty committee
is composed of Dr. W. S. Ber
nard, chairman, and Dr. W. M.
Dey and Dr. R. E. Coker.
The policy of the club is as
follows: .
"To those new arrivals ignor
ant of the social machinery of
the university of North Caro
lina, it may be explained that all
dances given by any organization
in the university, or any group
of students thereof, are under
I the supervision of a committee
composed of the faculty commit
tee on dances, acting jointly with
an executive council of the Ger
man club. This council is com
posed of nine upperclassmen of
the university. The problem of
chaperonage and supervision is
managed through this channel.
Early application should be made
at ,106 Murphey hall concern
ing intended dances.
"To dispell any suspicion of an
idea that theirs is a secret police
organization, the German club
executive committee herewith
sets forth its policy and its per
sonnel: we hold that it is an
exceedingly disagreeable duty to
have to report a fellow student
for miseondudTat a dance. We
shall consider it an act of cour
ts v nn flip nart. nf those who
might have imbibed any intoxi
cant to stay away from any so
cial function that might be given
at a parallel time.
"The executive committee is
not a detective organization. Its
Lpurpose is to continue dances at
Chapel Hill and to make them
as attractive as possible. We
do not wish to warn the student
body, we wish, rather, to gain
its co-operation in eliminating
drinking during dances at Caro
lina.'" The by-laws of the German
club are as follows:
"The members of the univer
sity of North Carolina German
club in regular session assembled
do adopt, in joint agreement
with the faculty committee on
dances, in accordance with the
constitution, the following -bylaws
: ; ';';.' ;.-
"I. The executive committee
of the German club shall act as
a committee for the purpose of
keeping order at all dances giv

German club. The leaders of
each dance shall act as tem
