Engineer Students
Go To Raleigh for
Observation Labs
Tentative plans for several
observation labs to be taken at
the Raleigh field of the Curtiss
Flying Service by the students
of aeronautics in the department
of mechanical engineering were
announced yesterday.
Professor E. G. Hoef e and
Mr. N. P. Bailey, members of the
engineering faculty, were in Ra
leigh Monday evening to attend
the formal opening of the Cur
tiss Service ground school there,
and arrangements for these labs
were made at that time.
At the Raleigh field, the Cur
tiss Service has eight or nine
different types of planes, and the
trips will be made for the pur
pose of observing the types of
planes as they are studied in the
aeronautics courses.
At the opening Monday, Pro
fessor Hoeff er and Mr. Bailey
spoke briefly of their plans for
the University courses in avia
tion, and D. Allen Harrell, Uni
versity student from Scotland
Neck, spoke on the construction
of model aeroplanes.

Carl Rogers, Hubert Heffner.
the University Institute .for Re
search in Social Science have
been conducting" a study to de
termine the causes of this fail
ure. The work was begun with
the idea of avoiding mistakes in
any future organization, a num
ber of which have been encour
aged since the receivership of
the old association.
It is the intention of Dr. T.J.
Woofter, research professor in
charge of the work, to complete
his report of the matter at an
early date. For almost three
years the process of collecting
the material for the final 'ac
count has been under way. As
yet Dr. Woofter has not a title
for the paper, but he has plan
ned and announced a definite ar
rangement of the topics that
will be treated. . .
In the beginning, the back
ground of southern agricultural
life with its problems of negro
labor, -tenant farming, and sys
tems of finance will be present
ed. All of these factors will be
shown in their relationship to
the failure of the former asso
ciation. The second section
will present a body of statistics
on tobacco production, prices,
supply, and demand; in section
three, methods of organization
will be discussed: in number
four, the operation of the asso
ciation; and the last division
will be devoted to a discussion
of the receivership of the old
Dr. Woofter was assisted m
gathering the data for this study
by two other men. The first of
these was Mr. Sidney Frissell, a
research assistant, who worked
throughout 1927. Mr. Frissell
seemed particularly adapted to
the work by reason of his asso
ciation with the co-operative
association as editor of its offi
cial paper, "The Tri-State To
baccp Grower." Inthis capacity
he was given access to all the
records of the organization, and
was thus thoroughly familiar !
with its policies and methods.
He -was an ideal man for the
study, knowing as he did the
mistakes and fallacies of the ad
ministration of the association.
When Mr. Frissell gave up
the study to accept a govern
ment position in Washington,
the research was continued by
another assistant, Mr. C. J.
Bradley. Mr. Bradley's work is
largely responsible for the mass
of statistical information that
will be incorporated into the re
port. V '
Considering the critical status
of the southern agricultural in
dustry, the growing sentiment
towards a new assdciation, and
the statement Concerning farm
relief that was recently express
ed by the national farm board,
this study and report has been
consummated at a strategic
time. In reference to the declar
In making an appeal for pri
vate gifts with which to supple
ment state appropriations, the
University of North Carolina is
only doing what every other
state university in the country ,
is doing, with the exception of
Wisconsin, President Harry W.
Chase told Orange county alum
ni and University faculty mem
bers at a smoker held here Tues
day night.
It has been showm conclusive-,
ly that private -gifts tend to en
courage and stimulate state ap
propriations, Dr. Chase said.
The University president was
explaining the purposes of the
appeal recently launched by the
Alumni Loyalty fund of the Uni
versity. "Such an appeal should not
be regarded as an emergency
measure," Dr. Chase gaid, but
rather as an effort to get the
alumni into a systematic habit
of putting something aside for
the University each year just as
they contribute regularly to their
lodge or their church."
Citing examples of private
gifts recently made to state in
stitutions in other states, Dr.
Chase said that one donor ex'-

school ten tynes the amount used
for building here in the last ten
years. Private gifts made to
the University of California"
.have amounted to $5,000,000 in
the last three years. Every
building that was constructed
here at the University prior to
1905 was built with private
funds. - :
The Alumni Loyalty fund is
based on the idea that, while the
state may supply the essential
things, state appropriations
should be supplemented with
private gifts with which to pro
vide excellence in University life.
"That was the motivating idea
when the fund was started un
der the administration of the
late Edward K. Graham, and it
is the same idea" today," Dr.
Chase declared. "The fund
should be regarded as the pre
sentation of an opportunity
rather than of a drive or cam
paign." Following Dr. Chase's address
the following new officers of the
Chapel Hill alumni association
were elected : Louis Graves,
president; Obie Harmon, vice
president, and Herman Baity,

members announced soon after
