Juncan Dancers Will Appear

First Bill of Season Will Bring
Famous Group to Chapel Hill;
Now on Second Tour of Amer
ica. Bag and baggage, with the
most important articles of all,
their abbreviated dancing skirts
and blouses, the Duncan Dan
cers, including Irma and the.
"Little Tamara," and their ten
terpsichorean sisters, will soon
make their first appearance in
Chapel Hill. .They will be pre
sented by the Entertainment
Committee October 16. ; r
Last year in a theatrical sea
son which had many failures,
The Duncan Dancers were one
of the brightest attractions, and
New York was loath to let them
go. They appeared on the stage
of the Manhattan Opera House
and at Wallack's Theatre, New
York City, enjoying one of the
marked successes of the year.
They are headed by Irma Dun
can, one of Isadora Duncan's
adopted daughters, an ideal and I
perfect leader. With Irma are
the elfin "Little Tamara,"
charming and graceful Alexan
dra, Maria, Tanya, Manya, Vala,
Sonia, Vera, Lola, Lily and
- Maya. " '
Their program is frequently
changed and" is always interest-

a feature New York has been
most enthusiastic about ; a ser
' ies of modern Russian dances
which have proven a terpsicho
rean revelation and created a
. furore.': :;---- ;7
While in Boston they were
bestowed one of the most un
usual honors ever accorded a
dance group in this country.
For the first time in its history,
the renowned Boston Symphony
Orchestra engaged dancers as
Duncan Dancers to open the
famous "Pop" season for a full
week's engagement from May
6th to 11th.
1 The success scored by these
young and beautiful Russian
dancers in Boston was so instan
taneous and marked that the
management immediately
sought them for a second week's
engagement in June. Owing to
previous European bookings for
the same date, the offer had to
be declined.
New York papers were loud
in their praise of the Duncan
Dancers. Clippings from New
York papers are as follows :
New York Times -"The eleven
Russian children are disarming-
ly beautiful and spirited. Their
youth and 'simplicity escape all
the pitfalls of anemia and pre
ciousness which their elders
have not always succeeded in
avoiding, and their complete sin
cerity contains no hint of solem
nity. Even 'the little group of
, Schubert's waltzes, in them
selves inconsequential except
for the fact that they were cre
ated by Isadora, are lifted be
yond banality by the freshness
of these young artist's perform
, ance." ." U

Dean of Students Warns Frosh
To Form Good Habits.
In chapel Thursday Dean F.
F. Bradshaw delivered, a word
of friendly warning to the fresh
men on the habits they were
forming at the beginning of their
college careers.
Dean Bradshaw stated that
the class of 1933 seemed to be
well above par in compariton
with other classes in such quali
ties as preparation, ability and
determination. However this
applied only to the class as -a
whole and not to every indi
vidual, and his purpose, he said,
was to speak to the individual.
Then the dean of students il
ustrated his remarks with a de
scription of a frog with its brain
removed. A frog in this con
dition continues to live, but it
has no initiative and wiH move
only when prodded and swallow
only when something is placed
in its mouth. Mr. Bradshaw
pointed out that such an exis
tence was useless and ineffective.
Dean Bradshaw undertook to
show by this illustration the
importance of thought and ini
tiative in lif e,and cautioned each
freshman against a mode of life
lacking in thoughtfulness. He
stated that, though psychologists
agreed that man had little con
trol over what sort of life he
should lead,, he exercised the
most influence over his life dur
ing a change of environment,
such as entering college. He
then Nirged each freshman to
seize this moment of plasticity
in his life-to form the right kind
of motivating habits. Now is
the time to form the habit of
living thoughtfully. "Don't be
stampeded by anybody's idea
Decide for yourself," he said.
"There is no formula in life," he
continued, "but there is a
favored method and that is liv
ing the thoughtful life."
"The complaint is sometimes
made that men with college edu
cations, though they have a suf
ficient knowledge of facts, too
often are lacking in powers of
discrimination and initiation."
The University student
branches of. both the A.S.C.E.
and the A.I.E.E. will hold meet
ings next Thursday evening in
Phillips hall.
The program for the William
Cain student branch of the A.
S. C. E. will consist of a talk by
Dean G. M. Braune, of the school
of engineering, and two reels of
moving pictures showing the
construction of a hydro-electric
development in the Great Smoky
mountains. -

of the branch of the American
Institute of Electrical Engi
neers, of -which J. J. Alexander

R. M. Grumman Begins Year's
Work With Lecture; Broad
cast From Station WPTF
On Wednesday night the Uni
versity of North Carolina "re
sumed its weekly broadcasts rom
station WPTF of Raleigh, when
R. M. Grumman, director of the
extension division, opened the
fall series with a lecture on "Op
portunities for Adult Education
in North Carolina." Mr. Grum
man emphasized the conception
of education as a continued pro
cess throughout life. He took
occasion to elaborate upon the
two leading mediums in the in
dividualistic approach to adult
education, home study and read
ing courses. He mentioned the
efforts being made in North
Carolina to educate the thous
ands of citizens who neither
read nor write.
. The activity - of. several . other
state departments in promoting
adult educational projects were
reviewed. Other state organ
izations now conducting educa
tional campaigns were men
tioned. The University radio hour,
which is sponsored by the extenT
sion division, concluded with a
sports chat dealing with football
developments of the past week.
Flying Is Optional
In Aviation Course
Flying is optional in the course
in aeronautical engineering be
mg given at the University of
North Carolina this fall for the
first time.
Since the new course was an
nounced, Professor E. G. Hoefer,
head of the department of me
chanical engineering, who is in
charge of the course, has re
ceivea a numoer ot inquiries
from anxious parents who want
ed to know whether their sons
would have to fly if they should
take the , course.
"The object of the course is
not to teach flying," Professor
Hoefer stated today, "but if a
student wishes to learn . flying
he is free tp do so by attending
an approved flying school, pro
vided he has the approval of his
parent or guardian. Such con
tact with the industry would
benefit him in his technical
There have sprung up many
flying schools teaching the actual
operation of aircraft, including
the care of mechanical equip
ment, and many men are trained
for ground work in connection
with aircraft maintenance. Such
men require no knowledge , of
engineering, most of them being
merely flyers or aircraft opera
tors, or mechanics. The may
be likened to automobile drivers
and auto mechanics. However,
for advanced technical work,
such as design, a thorough
course in engineering is abso
lutely necessary. V

Chairman Weil Points Out Dan
ger of Misinterpreting Pur
pose of Fund; No Conflict
With State Appropriations.
Goldsboro, Oct. 10. "The ap
peal for private gifts that the
Alumni Loyalty Fund has made
recently to alumni and friends,
of the University is not to be
regarded as an emergency meas
ure," Leslie Weil, chairman of
the Alumni Loyalty Fund Coun
cil, declared in a statement is
sued here today.
Pointing out the danger of the
appeal being misinterpreted, he
explained that "the fact that
the last legislature did not in
crease the institution's mainten
ance appropriation as requested
plus the fact that there has since ,
been flaws and substantial re-
duction from the appropriation
made have brought on the most
stringent condition in the insti
tution's finance in recent years.
"These conditions, followed
very soon by the public informa
tion that the Alumni Loyalty
Fund is this fall inviting every
living alumnus to put the Uni
versity in his budget for an an
nual gift, have' led some to in
terpret this move of the Coun
cil as one arising out of the "
stringency, in University fi
nances recently brought about.
"The fact is that the Loyalty
Fund Council would have re
quested gifts from all alumni
this fall even if there had been
substantial increases in the leg
islature'sjappropriations., . Since
1922 the council of the fund has
been on the lookout for an exe
cutive officer to develop the as
pect of University finances rep
resented by private giving.
"Such a man became available
this year in Daniel L. Grant,
former alumni secretary, and
editor of the Alumni Review,
and recently away from Chapel
Hill for a special investigation
in the field of alumni relations.
"To develop private giving in
a systematic manner is one of
the purposes which the alumni
have had constantly in mind
since 1922, when Mr. Grant first
became alumni' secretary and
founded the central alumni of
fice. ; ' ' '
"Mr. Grant has been a student
of alumni affairs, and influential
in developing the whole field of
alumni relations throughout the
country. While alumni secre
tary he was also president of -
the National Association of
Alumni Secretaries, and in that
position combined that associa
tion with two other coordinate"
bodies into the American Alum
ni Council.

retary of the Y, motored to Ra
leigh Wednesday to request the
assistance and cooperation of
General Albert Cox in trying to
get Colonel P. J. Hurley, assis
tant secretary of war, to speak
here November 13.

will speak here on the subject
of "Our National , Defense Pol
icy." Col. Hurley has been
closely connected with Presi
dent Hoover during the late dis
cussions of arms limitation,
and international peace, and is
therefore very well informed on
the subject of national defense.
Invitations are, at present, be
ing sent to Colonel Hurley from
the Y office, from President
Chase's office, and from General
Cox, personally.
