4 Shallow Complaint . . .
Every summer, there's the usual complaint aboufbore
dom on campus.
In spite of the fact that there is enough academic work
to keep people, busy until the weekend pause, students still
reiterate, "There's nothing to do."
We'd like to clear up the matter right away.
A student activities group which "aims to please" has
tried i,o find out what students want besides the beach. For
a first session which has a student population of no larger
than that in the early forties, we have ample entertainment.
The Watermelon Festival, scheduled a few weeks earlier
this year to provide a get-acquainted night for everyone.
Free movies at the Forest Theatre on Tuesday nights.
A welt organized intramural sports program.
Lawn concerts and plays produced by the Playmaker's.
. The list goes on.
Yet perhaps the most promising social event of the sum
mer has been the advent of women. Hundreds of girls are
here for the first time enjoying the life of a Carolina coed.
That six to one ratio which many find intolerable during
the fall, winter, or spring, has dipped to lower than 3-1, a
good proportion (which makes us feel that things should be
changed so that more undergraduate women could attend
here permanently. Someone even suggested that all the
junior and senior "women at W. C. switch with the UNC
freshmen and sophomores, an idea, which if not sound,
would at least solve 'the ratio question).
Summertime, is a happy time. For the bores who are
bored, we suggest that they wake up and enjoy Carolina.
American Folklore Tops
The fifth annual Carolina Folk
Festival sponsored by the Folk
lore Council of the University,
shifted into high gear last
Thursday evening. Norman Cor
don, nationally known opera
star and resident of Chapel Hill
spoke at the formal opening in
Kenan Stadium. Bascom Lamar
Lunsford of South Turkey Creek,
director of the festival, acted as
master of ceremonies introduc
ing the large number of folk
artists : which: had assembled
from all over the Carolinas.
A jovial, foqtpatting audience
gaily responded to the excited
quick-time, nervous whine of
the fiddles ,and the jogging,
plunking of the banjos which
accompanied the dance teams
and the ballad singers. The
Shake-A-Leg dance team from
Person County, composed of
middle age couples, drew. gasps
and sighs fp wondrous admira
tion from: ; the ? audience with
their ; fancy ' , routines which,
through requiring considerable
endurance,' j were I done with
seemingly ; fcgility. ;

dressed teena gers, added de

Spirited renditions of native

"Good Ole Mountain Dew," sung
and played by colorful George

Have you ever watched your
girl squeeze a tooth paste tube?
Does she use the death grip,
the middle squeeze or the top
end squeeze? It might make a
difference as to how neat a
housewife she'll be.
At the University of Wyom
ing 20 girls were tested on their
tooth paste tube squeezing ha
bits. It was found that the girls
-who carefully squeezed from
the bottom of the tube and roll-
ed it &s they went along,
tended to be " neat , in other
Girls who grabbed the tube
and squeezed at random tended
to be careless. Some of the
"earless" girls said they were
still half asleep when dealing
with the tube and didn't much
care how they squeezed it.

why he is so healthy, spry, and
vigorous after 80 years of life.
His handsome features a tanned
face with fiery eyes and a good
potch' of gray hair make him
look 80 years young. A thirst to
dolhings, an urge to be active,
and broad interests result in
physical and mental alertness.
