Journalism department of the I’nl
versity .delivered the first of a series
of lectures before the students of the
Oregon Agricultural College, Thurs
The essence of Ills lecture was a
talk preliminary to the teaching of
simple news writing.
Arrangements had been made for
Professor Allen to lecture before the
members of the Barometer Staff and
to those students who might be In
terested in jonrnalistie work At
five o'clock the hour arranged fi r the
lecture, one hundred students were j
present and intense interest was |
manifested. Before Mr. Allen left it

BY UNIVERSITY PROFS.
Dr. Hodge, Dr. Rebec and Dr.
Schafer Speak on Educa
The last part of the Lane County
Feachers Institute was given over
argely to addresses by members of
he University Faculty, in the pres
ume of some 500 people.
Ur. C. H. Hodge spoke on the
subject "The Application of Material
Science as Related to the Work of
the Home and the School.” Ur.
ilodge urged that the children ol
Oregon should be Interested in na
ture of all kinds, especially that of
garden raising. "The great trouble
vith our agriculture is that it is rec
<rdless. We want good honest rec
ords in connection with our gardens
I should like to have such prob
lems worked out by our children.
l’he heart of nature study is garden
.vcrk- The child should not attempi
to raise a large garden for this would
make the task burdensome and tire
some; but it should have a small
garden so that it can concentrate
its efforts. Let a child raise one
or two hills of potatoes and keep
an accurate record of everything in
connection with the raising of this
Dr. Hodge claimed that the child
would be intensely interested in na
ure by such a method and the child
would be brought in contact with
a healthy and vigorous life.
"The High School in its Relation
to the Community” was the subject
handled by Ur. Rebec. That the
High School should not be secluded
within four walls but it should lim
ber its courses and reach out to all
classes of the community in which it
is situated, was the central thought
of the address.
"Do not limit your coursed to those
who are able to attend only in the
day time but swing wide open your
doors to all, Have the High School
aim to reach out farther and farther.
If the people will not come, go out
and get them and bring them. Let
the only rcquirment be 'Are you will
ing to avail yourself of the oppor
tunity offered.’ The High School
should he the intellectual, recrea
tion and social center of the commu
nity,” wore some of the forceable
statements made by Ur. Rebec.
Ur. Schafer dwelt upon the timely
subject, "The Rural Schools Fast
and Present. “Tile weakest link in
i ur educational system in America
Is the rural school. The rural school
has not developed nearly as fast as
the town school (10 per cent of our
rural children are educated in one
room schools under one teacher this
does not offer efficient educational
opportunities for the farm hoy or
girl. A school which has one teach
er to train both boys and girls is
a sham, a fraud and only half a
school,” were the points brought
by Ur. Schafer in his indictment of
our single teacher schools.

"The average boy or girl com
