On Rational B
Dean of Springfield Y College
Says "Petting Is a Natural
Step toward Securing a Mate."
(By K. C. Ramsay)
"By 'rational sex life I mean
the scientific, the true, and the
balanced sex life," said Dr. F.
'M. Seerley, well-known author
ity of sex education, in his ad
dress in Memorial hall last night.
Dr. Seerley spoke twice yester
day, at the chapel exercises and
at 7 :30 o'clock last night.
In his address at chapel exer
cises Dr. Seerley said to the
freshmen; "I am glad to meet
you so early in your college car
reer, for you have not yet de
cided what is to be your concep
tion of God, of life, and 'of your
future. It makes a great, deal
of difference what you think.
That's the reason I'm here lec
turing on. sex. That's the rea
son, for a University. It's to
help you answer for yourself the
hundreds of thousands of ques
tions that come to you daily con
cerning your sex life."
Dr. Seerley outlined the three
steps in forming a personality
and pointed out the relation of
these steps to the thinking pro
cess. He stated that the build
ing material must be gathered
first, then the organization must
be brought about, and finally one
must live the things he has
gathered together and .organ
ized. T'At 'the evening lecture Dr.
Seerley used blackboard illustra
tions in tracing the development
of sex anatomy from childhood
upward. He showed how the
l relations Jbetween boys and girls
developed from childhood
through various steps.
The- first social contacts be
tween girls and boys occur in
early childhood when they play
together in the birthday parties
and other similar forms of en
tertainment. From this stage
they progress to dances. Dr.
Seerley was asked his opinion
concerning dancing and he said
"It is. a most natural way for
boys and girls to mix in a rather
intimate way and cannot pos
sibly be subjected to criticism."
From dancing the girls , and
boys of today evolve to petting
and the speaker was on the opin
ion that this is a most natural
step for one to take in searching
for a mate. He said that the
large amount of petting being
done today as compared with
that of past generations should
be attributed-to the automobile
and other means of being alone
together. ' v s
The courting ' stage follows
petting and approaches a more
intimate relationship between
sexes, and the final stage before
marriage is of course engage
ment. Engagement brings about
the most individual relationships
before marriage' and Is the final
step to take in being definitely
sure that a certain boy and girl
will be suitably mated.
Dr. Seerley pointed out that
the largest percentage of un
happy marriages is caused by a
misunderstanding of sexual rela
tionships and that these misun
derstandings can be attributed
to not following the natural evo
lution of social relationships as
. outlined above. V
During his stay here Dr. Seer
ley was asked his opinion con
cerning the present generation.
He replied, "The modern gen
eration is more frank than any

No Holiday Friday
In a brief interview Tuesday
afternoon the University regis
trar, Dr. T. J. Wilson, declared
that the . campus rumor of a
holiday on Friday is entirely
unfounded. Dr. Wilson says
that no such information has
reached him through the admin
istrative offices.
As the students have it, a
holiday was to be given on that
date for the apparent purpose
of allowing Carolina supporters
to attend the Georgia Tech game
in Atlanta on that day. In an
ticipation of the suspension of
classes many; students had
planned to accompany the Tar
Heel team on the southern trip
and to participate in the festiv
ities surrounding the contest,
which is possibly the most in
teresting and important of the
season's schedule. Consequently
the entire student body was
elated over the prospect of the
Other grounds for support of
the rumored announcement were
found in the fact that Saturday
is to be Founder's day at the
University. In view of these
facts, Dr. Wilson's statement
will doubtless be a surprise to
those who were depending on the
holiday to relieve them of class
work in order to attend the
Georgia game. ' , ..
Proving his theory that any
one can sing who wants to, Dr.
H. S. Dyer, director of the de
partment of music, is giving j
voice classes which are open to
any student in the University,
even though he has no more
talent ihan the suppressed de
sire to express himself in song.
Every day, except Wednes
day, studenfs, who range all the
way from freshmen to post
graduates, meet in Person hall
and learn what Dr. Dyer! calls
the simple and natural process
of singing. There are four
classes a day, which have an en
rollment of from thirty to sixty
men each.
Every college in the Univer
sity is represented in the
classes. Some of the members
have studied at Harvard, Yale,
Amherst, or New York Univer-
sity, while otners nave never
sung at all; not even to the ex
tent oi having taken part m
their college song.
All that is necessary to join
one of these classes is a good ear
for music, the desire to sing, and
a good physique. Dr. Dyer says
that not only can the student
"learn to sing in a few easy les
Sons" ; but also the group train
i i j "i
ing provides a . tremenaous
training in self-confidence and
stage presence.
Dr. Andrew Keogh, librarian
of Yale university and president
of the American library associ
ation, will make the dedicatory
address' .'at the University of
North Carolina -Southern Con
f erence to be held at Chapel Hil
October 19-22, when the Unr
versitv's new $625,000 library
building will be formally opened
Miss 'Sarah C. N. Bogle will
also be present at the conference
Friday the Carolina football squad tackles the hardest
team scheduled this year. A victory over Tech means a lot
toward gaining the Heels a place near the top in Conference
A lot has been written, especially by Atlanta sport au
thorities, about the Carolina team. They say we' have the
best team in the south up here this year. One writer says
that Carolina will beat Tech. -
All reports coming from out of Atlanta sound somewhat
like the same ones written two years ago before the Georgia
Tech contest. Georgia had a team making a bid for national
honors. Tech was only mediocre. Enough hot air was writ
ten about Georgia to float the Athens team over the Atlanta
stadium. The game ended with Tech on top by two touch
downs. There may be a lesson in that. , ...
It is also well to remember that in recent years teams
have found it hard to beat Tech in Atlanta. The Yellow
Jackets just play better football when at home.
The TAR HEEL believes that Carolina should win. But
any team carrying the power Tech does is going to be hard
to beat. Nothing short of great playing will turn the trick.
Carolina is capable of winning. But the game will not be
won until the final whistle sounds.
We do not believe in sentiment in football. But every
Carolina man is expecting a victory Friday. If Carolina
plays the football of which it is capable, Carolina will win.

3 Prospective French Teachers
cSpend Summer in
Three ' North Carolina co-eds
were among the 17 students who
toured Europe last summer with
the foreign study tour conduct
ed by the University extension
division, according to the report
made to the faculty committee
on foreign study last Monday
The three girls, Katherine
McCallie, Emily M. McClelland
and Catherine Groves, spent
July and August, studying and
sight-seeing -in France, Switzer
land, Germany, Holland, Bel
gium and England under the
-direction of Professor J. C.
Lyons. v
Besides seeing many famous
European museums, monuments
and castles, the girls visited
Waterloo and the Jungfrau
mountain in the Swiss Alps. The
rocks where . the Loreiei were
said to lure voyagers on the
Rhine to their death, and the
ruined towers from which rob
ber barons sallied forth to mur
der travelers who had managed
to escape the Lorelei were also
in the itinerary. -
While at Grenoble the stu
dents, who are all prospective
French teachers, took language
courses at the University there.
Credit was given for these
courses by the University and
by Adelphi college, Brooklyn,
from which several of the stu
dents on the tour came.
North- Carolina dentists- in
five cities will hear a course of
lectures to be given .next week
by Dr. ' L. D. Sayres of the
Northwestern University dental
school, Chicago.
"Bridgework" will be the sub
ject of the lectures and of i
series of clinics which Dr. Sayres
will also conduct. The entire
program is under the supervi
sion of the University extension
in cooperation with the North
Carolina dental society.
Dr. Sayres' lectures are the
eighth in a "series of ten courses
being offered this year by the
extension division and the den
tal society. About, 145 North
Carolina dentists are taking the
courses which are being held in
Kinston. Raleigh, Greensboro

Plans for FaU Quarter Discussed
At Meeting; .105 .Singers Re
port for Chorus.
With an attendance of - 105
singers, the Chapel Mill com
munity chorus held its first re
hearsal at Gerrard hall Monday
evening, me chorus is made up
of faculty members, students
and townspeople. It was organ
ized by a committee of which
George H. Lawrence of the Uni
versity faculty is chairman, and
is jointly. sponsored by the com
munity club and the University
school of music. Harold S.
Dyer, head of the school, is di
rector of the choral group and
Mrs. A. S. Wheeler
As yet the chorus has no def
inite organization. It is the in
tention of the leaders to perfect
an organization later when it
shall be determined what form
its administrative system shall
In view of the large attend
ance at the premier rehearsal,
he success of the chorus is prac
tically assured. However, the
chairman of the organization
committee urges that every one
who is interested in the organ
ization attend the next practice
ori'Monday at 7:30 in the same
hall. The University glee club
will also lend its support to the
venture. Over thirty of the num
ber were on hand Monday eve
ning to assure the bass and tenor
sections adequate material.
The tentative program of the
chorus includes two recitals
during the scholastic year and
the possible presentation of sev
eral programs at various Uni
versity functions. In accordance
with this program it is prob
able that the chorus will appear
at the joint meeting of the
Chapel Hill churches which will
be held on October 20 during
home-coming week. Several
numbers were rehearsed Monday
night in preparation for this
event which will doubtless mark
the first public presentation of
the chorus. ,
It was the original plan of
the chorus to otter ttanaeis
"Messiah" as the first produc
tion. Since copies ot this ora
torio have not arrived it will be
necessary to delay the prepara
tion of the number. ' However,
the famous composition will be
given on or about December 20,
the date set by the committee
An afternoon program is being
planned to cooperate with the
customary reading of the carols
by Professor Koch of the Play
makers. This will be another of
the features of the pre-holiday
spason. In addition to the
chorus and a number of soloists
an orchestra of about thirty
pieces will be employed in the
Tension on Campus Heightens
As Peripd of Silence Nears;
Rushing Ends Tuesday.
After about two weeks of in
tensive rushing the Greeks are
gradually stepping into their
stride and competition is pick
ing up.
In spite of the new rushing
rules' tendency to lessen the
strain on both upper and lower
classmen, tension on the cam
pus is being heightened by the
keen competition wrhich has
arisen between the fraternities.
In place of the . easy flowing
rushing season of past years
there is now a more organized
"man hunt" going on. Previous
to this year "rushing" became
intensive only in the last day or
so before the "period of silence"
but the "period of silence" of
1929 will probably bring tor a
close the most intensive and
strenuous rushing season seen
so far at U. N. C.
For twelve days now the
freshmen have been praised,
pampered, and pumped in order
to get them in a receptive
frame of mind for the "wool
J. The fact that rushing is lim
ited to seven hours a day and
that freshmen are forced to
leave the houses at 9 o'clock is
the only consolation for the
seven hours of strain.
Nearly all of the frosh have
been filled with so much frater
nity lore that Baird himself
would be put to shame. The
Who's Who of . the" campus has
been raised by about four or
five hundred names The best
fraternity always begins with
"Us." And Baird's Manual is
always wrong unless it puts
"Us" at the head of the list.
Although the freshmen wTere
given a chance,to get themselves
adjusted to the University cam
pus and the upper classmen be
came readjusted before the "fire
works" started, the new method
of rushing does not seem to re
lieve the general strain upon
the campus.
Freshmen are by now settling
down to a choice between one or
two fraternities. Their likes
and dislikes have eliminated
many and at last the choice has
narrowed down to a chosen few.
The last two days of rushing
will probably decide most of
these freshmen and as usual this
will cause the last two days to
be filled with extra rushing for
the freshmen. .
There will be a few freshmen
that will be under the embar
rassing strain of making up
their minds in the two days of
silence as the larger part of
these "prospective neophytes"
will have come to a definite con
clusion by the last night of rush
ing. Some have already made
up their minds.
All through this rushing sea
son the inter-f ratrenity council
has urged that the freshmen
keep "open minds" until the
"period of silence" when they
can look at the facts without be
ing stirred up by the flattery.
