Newspapers Did Their Bit, He
Says; Chinese Accused of
American newspapermen d:d their bit
in the great war both on the firing line
and behind the lines, Fred Locklej, Or
egon Journal man, who haa re
cently returned from a y^ar s experienc
es »«over there,” said in an informal talk
before the editing class of the School of
Journalism Wednesday morning.
“The men did fine work at the front,
»nd they will come back better prepared
to write great stuff,” said Mr. Lockley.
“Splendid opportunities are open to them
in France now.” Mr. Lockley refused
an offer to write for a (Paris paper, at
a salary of $000 a month and expenses
for six months contract.
He was asked to meet incoming ships
and get interviews with Americans just
fresh off the boat. He could not con
aider the proposition, however, since he
was working for the Y. M. C. A
Mr. Lockley saw Lawrence Dinneen,
graduate of the University School of
Journalism, and of the Oregon Journal
news staff. They went swimming to
gether in the Mediterranean at Nice,
where, said Mr. Lockley, “the sunsets
are incomparably beautiful- Dinneen
is popular, and later he introduced me
to a number of dazzling, chic little French
maids and widows.”
Utner uregun men occu
Loekley also saw Dave Hazen, of the
Telegram, and Will G. McRae, of the
Oregonian- He saw Schaffer and Mc
Neil, both Journal reporters, in a hos
pital in France. Hockley also saw No
ble R. Moore, of the Corvallis Gazette
tFimes, who, he said, was running a ‘‘Y’
tout at Bordeaux with great success.
“There is a comradeship among news
papermen abroad,” said Hockley, “and
they will go far to serve each other.”
“The British,” he said, “are tenacious,
determined fighters. They don’t seem to
care about being killed at all.”
Our boys, according to Loekley, do
not seem to get along so well with the
English Tommies as they do with the
French soldiers. He attributed this to
diffidence on the part of the British
soldiers and his inability' to reciprocate
favors on account of his small pay in
comparison with the more affluent Yan
kee. “But it is with the Australians,
those fine, big fellows and great fight
ers,” said Loekley, “that our men are
on a common plane of understanding.
They actually love each other.”
The last that Mr. Loekley saw of the
Oregon men was on October 16. “Some
of them,” he said, “helped to fire the

The origin of the name Spanish influ
enza came through the Chinese by way
of Spain, according to Loekley. He ex
plained that 200,000 Chinese employed in
munition factories in Spain, spread the
disease, and Spain being neutral and her
ships carrying stuff to England and
France also carried the malignant dis
ease, and it was in this way that the
malady became known as Spanish influ
While .n Bordeaux Mr. Loekley wrote
for the publicity department of the Y.

Paris edition of the Daily Mail.
OLD JAPANESE WG1
BLOCK PRiiTS SHOWS
Symmetry Developed by Artists
Takes'Place of Proper
The collection of Japanese prints ex
hibited Wednesday and Thrusday in the
art room of the architecture building are
examples of some of the masters of Jap
anese art. Hiro-sige anrl Hokusai rep

names, as well as others not quite so
Some of the prints are old and range
from $15 to $.H0 in price, while others on
display are reproductions of the orig
inal type and may be had for much less.
The difference is to be noted in the col
oring, for which the Japanese are fa
mous. The older examples shew the
softer, mellower shades of rede and blues,
>while the reprints, although very attrac
tive, are more commonplace in color tone.
iAnd this is due largely to the difference

ing the expensive prints, which take col
The beauty of these Japanese prints
as types of art lies in their composition.
tThe Japanese artist obtains his balance

to be found a dominant striking figure

mark of a high order of ,ability that the

prints. The colors go from dark to light,
blended in a way that makes the whole

of the school of architecture, are more

Some of these, not being covered with
glass, are a little soiled or worn from
the handling of the thin paper. Others,
although they may be very old, have a

chest by an appreciative individual, for

.Seniors Defeat Juniors 26-5:
Sophomores Lose to
I The seniors and freshmen won the
first basketball games of the women’s
interclass series which started Thursday
j evening. The seniors won from the jun
iors by a score of 26-5, and the freshmen
from the sophomores by 13-11.
Maud Lombard, senior forward, made
16 of the 26 points. During the first few
minutes of the game, she shot baskets
unsuccessfully, but after the game got I
well started, her basket-shooting was
spectacular. Ilazel Rankin, also a for
ward, played a fast game. The team
work between these two forwards piled
np the score of the seniors. Mary Ma
this, junior forward, made the only score
for the juniors during the game. The
juniors had the ball a great deni of the
time but were unable to find the basket.
The sophomore team won most of
their points through fouls being called on
the freshmen who played a very fast
game. Grace Tigard, forward on the
freshman team, scored highest with 1
points and Dorothy Reed came next, with
3 points. Lein Rarnum made 7 of the
sophomores 11 points. Her basket-shoot
ing was sure. Florence Riddle, sopho
more forward, scored the other four
points, made by the sophomores.
noth pimps played were character

students who are in the University nnd
who should have been present at the

banners were to be seen, however, and

FORUM TO STUDY DEBATE
Plan Is to Help Women In Forensics;
Will Elect Secretary.
The Forum, an organization of wo
men interested in the promotion of de
bate, will meet Thursday evening at 7
oVloek, in Professor Robert W. Pres
cott's room in Johnson hall.
It is the plan of the Forum members
to make the meetings from now on stu
dy hours of debate, when faculty mem
bers will assist the women in drawing
up debate skeletons as well as helping
in the study of debate development. Fo
rum members will also consider models
of debate, with au idea in mind to an
alyze the strong and weak points.
It is thought that the Forum can
greatly help the women of the Univer
sity in forensic work, particularly those
women who are going out later on to
represent their houses in the inter
sorority debates which have just been
scheduled. \\ ith this idea in view there
is no reason why the membership of the
Forum should not be increased 100 j>or
cent. It had only L’S members last year.
The organization will have to elect
a secretary at its next meeting to fill
the place left vacant by Erma Huff,
who was a freshman in the University
