THIEF DISCOVERED BT PSYCHOLOGY TEST Demonstration Almost Fails, Howev er, Because “Suspect” Hankers for a Smoke Leland Brown’s strong hankering for an after dinner smoke almost spoiled the demonstration of scientific Sherlock-Holmesing to which the De partment of Psychology invited the University Tuesday afternoon. Ray Gorman it was who had stolen Dr. K. M. Dallenbach’s meerschaum pipe and smoked it in the professor’s office, and finally got away with it in his pocket, but the “mean variations” “reaction times,” etc, on the first fig uring, almost secured his acquittal. Bill Hayward’s stop watch said ne was not guilty, whereas he had the missing pipe in his pocket all the time, and if Dr. Dallenbach had taken a good sniff he could have detected his misappropriated Bull Durham. Gorham and Brown were sent out of the well-filled demonstration room soon after the audience gathered at 1:00 o’clock. They were under sealed orders, one to commit the offense stated, and the other to maintain his virgin innocense, and spend his time reading the Morning Oregonian. Then both came back to be psy chologically examined. Uiach witness in turn was asKea to reply as quickly as possible with any word that came into his mind when Dr. Dallenbach pronounced an inquiry word. The pipe which one or the other was supposed to have stolen was an elaborate meerschaum, carved in the likeness of the head of a Chi naman, and thereby hangs the tale. When Dr. Dallenbach said “Mon golian,” the innocent Brown replied, “Chinaman,” while the guilty Gor man answered “pipe.” When he said “steal,” the innocenet man thought it was “steel,” and said “knife,” while Gorman again said “pipe.” The word “queue,” which should have convicted the criminal if he had connected it with the Chinaman’s queue on the pipe, furnished a trap that Gorman was foresighted enough to avoid. He mentally translated the word into bil liard cue, and answered “shoot,” but it took him a second and one-fifth to do it, and this delay was supposed to betray a guilty conscience. The trouble with the experiment however, was that however much his guilt might purturb Gorman and lengthen his “reaction time” as meas ured by Bill Hayward, who with Del Stannard served as time-keeper. Brown’s hankering for a smoke aroused a different emotion in his breast, but one which seemed to be just as lively as guilt. When Dr. Dallenbach said “smoke,” Brown came back with a “cigarette;” when he used such an innocent word as box, even, Brown would respond “cigars.” “Smoke” to Gorman seemed to be connected with “drink,” while on the other hand, in Brown’s mind “drink” was connected with “water.” Dr. Conklin and Dr. Dallenbach finally decided that although the sta tistics did not seem to be unanimous, they had better accuse Gorman. “Yes,” admitted Gorman, “I have your pipe, but I can’t see that you proved it on me.” The statistics were gone over again yesterday, however, and it was plain that they, too, proved Gorman was “guilty.” Gene Good was appointed to act as sheriff during the trial, and Ethe’ Loueks and Jessie Purdy as court stenographers.

KEEP ALUMNI PAGE IN EMERALD, SAY SENIORS Plan to Have Special Publication Not Favored by Most of the Alumni It has been suggested that in place of continuing the weekly alumni page in the Emerald next year, the alumni should get out a separate publication, devoted entirely to alumni interests. The weekly page which has been under the supervision of Earl Kilpat rick, ’12, of the Extension Depart ment, is a new departure this year. In former years the alumni usually got out one number of the Emerald, frequently during Junior Week-End, but had no regular publication. Those suggesting a separate publication men tion a quarterly as practicable. There are 535 alumni subscriptions to the Emerald, according to Antho ny Jaureguy, Business Manager. Among the alumni readers who re plied to a questionaire sent out by Mr. Kilpatrick, inquiring as to how they would like to see the alumni news handled next year, the major ! ity were in favor of continuing the present arrangement, and said they j were well pleased with it. I Faculty members who are alumni, ^ and some near-alumni, that is, Sen ' iors, have expressed themselves about the matter as follows: Ruth Howell, ’12—“I would favor the idea of an alumni quarterly. 1 thing it would retain interest in the University.” Dr. • J. H. Gilbert, ’03—“Providing the alumni quarterly could be financed successfully, it would be preferable next year. The University will come to it sooner or l^ter.” A. R. Tiffany, ’05—-“It would be bet ter to continue with the alumni page another year. The quarterly would be good, if it could be financed.” Mary E. Watson, ’09—-“The alumni page has been very successful this year. I am delighted with it. But I think many alumni read only the i alumni page. A separate publication would be a good thing.” Mozelle Hair, ’08—“For the present II think that the page is all that wc can manage, but I will be glad when | the time comes that we can have oui own paper.” I Franklin Staiger—“The alumni page | seems the best to me. It makes the Emerald doubly welcome to the alum nus, and keeps him in touch with col lege activities.” Vaughn McCormick—“I do not thin! the alumni quarterly would reach ae many people as the alumni page does now.” Sam Michael—“An alumni quarterlj can’t be put out next year except al a loss. Kill two birds with one stone that is keep the alumni interested in the Emerald, and the Emerald inter ested in the alumni, by keeping the alumni page.” Lyle Steiwer—“Retaining the alum : ni page will keep the undergraduate in touch with the alumni, and vice ver sa. Giving the alumni a part of the Emerald will serve to prevent theii feeling that the Emerald is trivial oi childish or does not concern them.” FOR SALE—TYPEWRITER — Nev $75 Royal, used one month; all lat est improvements of $100 machine big bargain.

ADMISSION Adults 1 Oc, Children 5c A-.< i TI PLANS COMPLETED — Louise Allen and Miss Gillies on Trail of Spotlight Artists and Ten nis Sharks Final plans for the Y. W. C. A. conference at Seabeck, at which 42 1 colleges will be represented this sum- | mer, are being completed this week by Louise Allen, chairman of the con ference committee. Three afternoons of the convention will be given over to a water fete, stunt party and ten nis tournament. Boating, trips, hikes and picnics will take up the rest of the time.

The 20 girls representing Oregon will leave Eugene June 23, under the i chaperonage of Miss Gillies, and will journey to Seattle by train, leaving; there the same day by boat for Sea bed:. EMPLOYMENT BUREAU WILL BE i INSTALLED FOR WOMEN Miss Maary Gillies, of the local Y. W. C. A., will install a systematic , employment bureau here for next fall. Any woman of the University wishing employment for next year will greatly j facilitate matters if she will notify Miss Gillies at once. Also women j ! who wish girls to help with house | work for room and board can secure ! the services of competent help through i Miss Gillies. A telephone will be ! installed in the Bungalow early next fall, and in the meantime Miss Gil lies may be found at the Gamma Phi ; Beta house. NEW SHIFT INSTALLED (Continued from page 1 ) j years of good time, yet were not sorry they were going. “Some of us have had to interview some of our professors. Some have had a little trouble with the cut sys tem, and still, yet when we come to go we realize that some of the friend ships we’ve formed here we may not be able to form again. | “The faculty,” he finished, “has done its best to instruct us in the way we should have gone.” Cloyd Dawson, President of the Y. M. C. A., urged that more work be done among the high school students this summer. MILLINERY PARLORS MRS.
