The Alumni Weekly of the
Establish University of Minnesota de
a Campus voted its issue of DecerS
Forum her 13th to a movement to
° revive debate at the Univer
sity of Minnesota and place it along
aide of football and baseball in the inter
est of the students, faculty and towns
The object of the campaign as announ
ced in the special Forensic number of
the Alumni weekly was the establish
icnt of a public speaking Forum on
he campus to call for training of all
Indents in public speaking and discus
iion. The Alumni weekly reviews the
past history of Forensic activity at the
University of Minnesota and publishes a
>rief statement concerning every man
pvho has ever represented the University
n inter-collegiate debate. Many of these
lebaters have since become prominent
n politics and business.
The Alumni editor says editorially, "It
s significant of those who have respond
d, that apparently it matters little into
what line the debater has gone after
eaving college, he finds the work help
ful— not onl; to express his ideas, but
tS enable him to see clearly, to weigh
evidence and value facts in their pro
per proportion. One who has known only
the lack of enthusiasm concerning ora
;ory and debate which has characterized
:he University community in recent years,
lardly can appreciate the enthusiasm
concerning the same lines which char
icterized the Unive.sity community of
early days. Until well along in the *90’s
lootball and other athletic news has sub
ordinated the news of oratorical contests

WOULD BE GOVERNOR
BUT HIS AFFECTION BINDS
Osan Straub Receives Letters Galore
Promising Support for His Guber
“If anything keeps me from running
for governor it is the thought of sever
ing my connection with the University—
with my boys and girls.” said Dean
Straub, today in speaking of his probable
candidacy for governor of the state. “This
is the strongest pull to keep me from
Dean Straub has received a pile of let
ters from alumni and friends throughout
the state who promise him their sup
port should he decide to ‘become a can
didate for governor.
Many of the old graduates do not wish
him to run. Their argument is that:
“Anybody can be governor of the state of
Oregon but none can take Dean Straub’s
place in the University.”
W. C. Taylor, ’84, a Baptist minister
at Clarksburg, West Virginia, insists
that Professor Straub should not lun
because he belongs to the University.
When the old “grads” get together and
talk of the University, they really talk
about Dean Straub, writes Mr. Taylor.
The old school as they know it can not
be the University without him.
Almost every one who has heard of
the University has heard of him. There
is scarcely a town in Oregon that he has
not visited, while connected with the
University. Last year he spoke at 95
different high schools in the state, in
connection with the University exten
sion department. This year he has ad
dressed thirty high schools already.
DR. DALLENBACH’S FAME
AS PSYCHOLOGIST SPREADS
The work of Dr. Karl M. Dallenbach,
instructor in psychology at the Upiver
sity of Oregon last year and now in
structor "at Ohio State University is re
ceiving attention among psychologists.
Dr. Dallenbach read a paper on “Mea
surement of Attention” before the experi
mental section of the American Psycho
logical Association at its annual meeting
in Chicago, three weeks ago. This paper,
based largely upon experimental work
which he carried on at the University of
Oregon, caused so much discussion that
it is to be printed in its entirety in the
American Journal of Psychology. One of
Dr. Dallenbach’s articles appeared in last
October’s issue of the same journal.
Another of his articles, giving the re
sults of an investigation into spelling de
fects will be published this year in Edu
