ROY BURKHART—The speaker at last night's lecture, sponsored by the University Religious Council, Dr. Burkhart asserted that women today are more feminine, men less masculine. In addition, he said that too many rub elbows, but never rub hearts, in their day-to-day meetings. Photo by Martha Pierce Burkhart Says Men Less Masculine, Seek Security By EILAH SHEARER Women of today are more feminine and men less masculine stated Dr. Roy A. Burkhart in a speech last night on "The Changing Roles of Men and Women in the Twentieth Century." Speaking under the auspices of the special observances com mittee of the University Religious Council, Burkhart considered this fact due to the lack of contact boys have with their own sex. He said that from his own observations men of today are "looking for security rather than opportunity." Burkhart, minister emeritus of the First Community Church of Columbus, Ohio, and well-known counselor in courtship, marriage and family problems, said that the subsequent effect on *women is to make them feel less /r\ I • / T* t _« fulfilled. He stressed that the Dear Liar Tickets On Sale This Week Tickets for the Katharine Cornell and Brian Aherne performance of George Bernard Shaw's Dear Liar here Friday night are available at the Page box office every afternoon this week. The Major Attractions—sponsored presentation will open on Broadway less than a week after the performance here. The play is based on playwright Shaw's correspondence witn* Mrs. Patrick Campbell, a celebrated Irish actress. Through Thursday, the Page box office will be open from 2 to 5. Friday, it will be open from 2 until curtain time at 8:15. Tickets are $2, $2.50, and $3. Miss Cornell and Aherne have appeared together in six previous stage successes, including the memorable The Barretts of Wimpole Street. basic role of women is that of wife and mother. "The family is the healthiest unit in this democracy," Burkhart stated. However, he said, many families have a tendency to "rub elbows instead of hearts" and use the home as a place to simply rest and not to live together. He noted the growing interest in courtship and marriage among high school and college students as a good sign in future family relations. Man is on the eve of a new breakthrough of consciousness and a "whole psychological change" which may lead to a new surge in evolution if war can be prevented for 50 years, Burkhart concluded from his own observations. In speaking of marital relations, Burkhart emphasized that men and women must first come to know themselves well before a courtship is to be truly successful and that the next step is to know what love itself is. West Campus To Kick Off $3500 Chest Drive Tonight IFC Rejects Motion To Ban Pledge Trips In Training Program . The Interfraternity Council last night voted down a motion to abolish fraternity pledge trips. The motion was introduced by IFC pledge master Sam Yancey, who felt that pledge trips were not a necessary part of pledge training and that various incidents which have occurerd on pledge trips and have received national attention are responsible in part for the precarious position of the fraternity system. Dean Robert B. Cox addressed the council emphasizing that pledge trips and other forms of hazing are violations of North Carolina state laws, rules of the National Interfraternity Council, and the constitution of each National fraternity. The Administration is also opposed to such practices, he added. A motion was passed for each fraternity to "accept and support" the plans for IFC's annual Greek Week which were drawn up by the Greek Week committee. These plans include a banquet scheduled for Wednesday, April 6, an afternoon track meet to be held Friday, April 8, and a carnival -the following afternoon. Don Kettlestrings was elected the new secretary of the IFC to replace B. W. Ruffner, who had previously resigned. In addition, Jack Levy was appointed project chairman of the IFC.
