j500 FROSH NEXT YEAR
Students in EaflnMr High Schools
Visited by DeanViow Strong
Interest in Oregon
“I confidently expect a Freshman
class of 500 students next year,” said
Or. John Straub, Dean of the College
of Liberal Arts, recently, “especially
if the times improve somewhat.
“During the past three months I
have addressed various high schools
in Southern Oregon and some in the
Willamette Valley—probably 25 thus
far. In each of the schools there has
"%een a very strong interest shown in
the University. After my address, I
generally have had an after meeting
with the members of the senior class,
who wished to know further partic
ulars about the University.
“At one school, Drain, so great was
the interest in the University, that
the whole high school, with Miss Le
nora Hansen as chaperon, walked the
railroad track with me to Yoncrlla, a
distance of six miles, so as to give me
an opportunity to talk still further
about University matters. At Gold
Hill I met a dozen of the Seniors at
the lecture; six of whom Professor
Adams thinks we will get next year.
From Riddle, there will probably be
four new students next year, in ad
t dition to the five already here from
that place; and from Sutherlin, where
I spoke last Friday, there will be at
least two new students.
“Everywhere that I have been, there
has been manifested the greatest en
thusiasm and friendly feeling toward
the University, and where formerly
there was a decided sentiment against
us, the pro-University feeling has be
come very marked. I think the out
look for the University of Oregon is
very hopeful, and that henceforth we
shall have plain sailing, for the peo
ple of Oregon have decided attacks
on their State University must cease.”
MORRIS REPRESENTS OREGON
in McMinnville tonight
Victor Morris will represent the
University of Oregon in the State In
tercollegiate Oratorical Contest to be
held in .McMinnville tonight. The
subject of his delivery is “Democracy
and World Peace.”
With the exception of last year,
Oregon has always secured first or
second places in this state meet
against seven or eight opponents. The
colleges taking part this year are:
Reed College, Albany College, Pa
cific University, Pacific College, Wil
lamette University, O. A. C.f Ore
gon State Normal School, McMinn
ville College, and the University of
Besides being represented in the
contest itself by Victor Morris, the
University of Oregon will send six
student delegates to the business ses
sion of the Oratorical League. Cloyd
Dawson and Lamar Tooze have been
. appointed from the Junior class.
' Nicholas Jaureguiy from the Sopho
mores, and Joseph Denn and Kenneth
Moores from the Freshmen.
3 JUNE 14 IS DATE SET FOR
JOURNALISTS TO MEET HERE
The Western Association of Teach
ers of Journalism will be the guests
of the University of Oregon during
commencement week, June 14 to i7.
That date is satisfactory to the Uni
versity of Washington, according to
Eric W. Allen, head of the Univer
sity Department of Journalism.
A letter has been sent to Montana
University asking if that time would
also be agreeable to them. Besides
the representatives from these Uni
versities, the high school teachers
who are interested in this line of work
will doubtless be invited.
Several of the advertising men
from the Portland Ad Club expect to
come. An attendance of between 25
and 30 is expected.

in the matter of her love and rever
ence for those who teach. The rela
tionship between the students and the
instructor is that of father and son;
the usual appellation given to the
latter being ‘Father and Teacher,’ or
‘Senior of All.’ ”
To show that the Japanese also be
ieve that “all work and no play
makes Jack a dull boy,” the speaker
told of some of the pleasures enjoyed
by the students. For the most part,
these consist of jiu-jitsu, swimming,
rowing, and more recently of base
ball. He said that lawn tennis was
also growing in favor, but that the
Japanese had “not yet tried their
hands (or feet) at football.” “Hikes”
of several "days’ duration) in which
from four to five hundred students,
accompanied by the instructors, take
part, are also common.
The foreign consul stated that the
Japanese hesitate to speak before an
American audience, even though they
may be well versed in the language,
because their knowledge is usually a
reading, rather than a speaking,
knowledge. His own “fall from
grace” he thought might be due to
American kindness, the climate, or an
innate lack of modesty on his part.

Botany Department Prints Flower
Pictures With Figures for
The University of Oregon Depart
ment of Botany, through the Exten
sion Department, is getting out a
floral calendar to be distributed to
the various libraries throughout the
state. Professor A. R. Sweetser, who
has charge of the work, plans to post
the calendars in other public places
as well, if the funds on hand permit.
The calendar itself is made up of
sheets eight by ten inches, each
sheet containing a photograph of a
single plant, a drawing of the parts,
and a brief description. These sheets
will be placed on the respective bul
letin boards at the time that the
flower is in bloom.
“This is the only instance of this
kind of work being carried on in Or
egon,” said Professor Sweetser. “Its
fundamental aim is to give infor
mation to the public and to create an
interest in the common plants of the
fields and gardens.”
In addition to distributing these
plates, the Department of Botany is
publishing suggestive hints to teach
ers of Botany, Biology and Nature
study, for the use of local material.
These notes will be used in connec
tion with the regular authorized
Professor Sweetser says that these
notes on how to utilize text-book ma
terial are being issued in response
to a request for such “helps” made by
state science teachers at the State
“I feel that the text-books now
used are more adapted to Eastern
material,” said Professor Sweetser.
“My purpose is to give a correct
method of teaching Botany, Biology
and Nature Study as the Botany De
partment understands it.”

Unless this team is played within
the next week there will probably be
no games before that with the' Col
ored Giants, but beginning right after
this game,’ March 30, the Oregon team
expects to meet several near by town
teams for practice games before the
conference schedule begins.
Yesterday the old field was dragged
over and put into shape for immediate
practice, the new field remaining too
soggy and damp for use. It will take
warmer weather, and lots of it, to
put the diamond into condition.
