Till Dinner Is Cold
Professor R. C. Clark was suddenly
stopped and held at the point of a gun
by an (>. T. <sentry, while trying to
pass the drill ground near the Admin
istration building on his way to dinner
The guard approached and said Haiti
then kept him waiting until the corporal
came no and asked him who he was and
where lie was going.
Professor (’lurk could not have been
“peeved” of course: lur no man likes to
be kept waiting for his dinner. Tt is
Professor Clark's opinion that military
discipline is n vein necessary and a very
fine thing in it’s place but be sees no
reason why bg, should be made a target
for practice by an over enthusiastic sen

NEW LIBRARY HOURS
FIXED FOR HEALTH
Relief of Congestion Reason for
Change. Says Professor
“Some of the girls on thp campus are
getting ‘peeved’ at the wrong time. They
have the wrong idea entirely in regard
to the new library hours,” says Profes
sor A. It. Sweetser. chief sanitation of
fieer of the University.
“It is for their own good, and to re
lieve the congestion in the main reading
room at this critical time in the epi
demic, that the girls are being asked
on certain hours to go to another room
to do their studying.”
Men's Work Supervised
The hours from 7 to 0 in the evenings
are reserved for the military men, and
all work is done under the direction of
the officer in charge. Prom 0 to 11 in
the mornings the girls are asked to go
to another place since those are the
most congested hours. However, on
Friday morning the rooms are not
crowded, so the girls may have the free
dom of the main reading-room during
those hours on Fridays. Perhaps these
hours on still more days will be opened
to the girls if the eommitte in charge
finds that the rooms are not overcrowd
Neither of these regulations applies
to Friday evenings, Saturdays or Sun
A study room has been provided for
the girls in the basement of the library
with an attendant in charge. Reserve
books may be had there as well as at
the upstairs desk.
Now Exhaust Fans
Professor Sweetser is superintending
the installing of a set of exhaust fans
in the library, which will greatly im
prove the ventilation of that building.
Retwoon all tfco periods the windows
will be opened and these fans set in mo
tion and tlie air changed as much as pos
sible in the ten minutes, without danger
In addition to these other health meas
ures, the floors are washed and all the
tables and chairs wiped off each day
with an antiseptic.

A bureau of educational research
whose purpose is to test the school sys
tems of Oregon has been organized un
der 'the direction of Professor C. A. |
Gregory of the school of education i
with Dr. B. W. DeBusk as assistant.
Oregon has been far behind the east
ern states in testing the efficiency of its
school system. Realizing this fact the
bureau was organized and already Pen
dleton, The Dulles, Baker, Eugene, Til
lamook. Milverton, and many othei
smaller places have signified their desire
to co-operate in testing their school
systems this year.
Dr. DeBusk has charge of the educa
tional clinic and the physical and men
tal measurements and Professor Greg
ory has charge of educational measure
ments and school tests. Tests in arith
metic, reading, algebra, writing, spell
ing have been sent for and Professor
Gregory is preparing a test in language, i
These tests are to be sent to the school
superintendents of Oregon upon re
quest, and upon their completion they
are to be returned to the University
where they will be compiled, comparisons
and correlations made and sent cut to
the school superintendents in bulletin
form. These bulletins, through the data
obtained, will give accurate comparisons
of the progress of the school systems i
Professor Gregory plans to spend the
second quarter of !his year in the field
doing work in relati u to tests and mens- i
Copies of the tests will be available
for distribution by November 10 and
they may be secured by sending a letter
to the Bureau of Educational Research
at tbe University of Oregon. The tests
are handled at cost so may be obtained
as cheaply there as by sending to the

nine months younger than Hubert Lees,
of the sophomore class, who held the
record as the youngest student last
year. Mr. Lees was younger when he
entered than Miss Elrod is now,
Maurine is a graduate of the Lincoln

June, 191S. She attended school pre
viously at the Portland Academy. Social
service is her aim and after her gradu
ation from the I'uiversity. she intends
to follow this work. Sbo is at present (
taking a general cultural course. She is

sis’.er, Ltuille Elrod, who entered with
