"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.

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." ."

C FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1929 Duncan Dancers P .4 -w, ' if BRADSHAW TALKS TO FROSH CLASS 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." ENGINEERING SOCIETIES TO MEET NEXT THURSDAY 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.

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 studies." 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.

NUMBER 19 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.

Hurley, assis tant secretary of war, to speak here November 13. V Colonel Hurley, if he accepts, 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.
