The Student Volunteer Hand held its
first meeting for the year 1920-21 last

(he opportunities there for competent
college graduates.
According to Mr. Woods, there are
about three hundred openings in India
ut the present time for doctors, scient
ists, evangelists, and educational work
ers. The educational requirements are
becoming higher and higher for this kind
of work,” lie said, “and only about 2F
per cent of those who apply are able to
satisfy the final committee.
Mr. Woods lias been connected with
one of the colleges in India until re

coast, recruiting volunteers under the
auspices of the National Volunteer Band

The new open-air gymnasium for wo
men which has been under construction
for the past six weeks is nearing com

says W. K. Newell, supervisor of con
struction, yesterday, “but if the presold
good weather continues the building wil’
be ready for use sometime-between, No

The new gymnasium is located just

Errors in Subject Matter.
The subject matter for the tests will
coutaiu certain typographical errors,
placed in certain positions on the inige.
In giving the tests, certain variations in
technique and method are to bo made
said Ur. Crosland. The first test will
be set in 0 point type; later, 8, 10 and 12
point, type will be used. The width of
the columns will be varied from 13 ems
the approximate width ot a newspaper
column, to 17 and 25 ems. At one time,
I the groups will be instructed to work
j slowly and carefully, with no thought of
the amount of time consumed, though
the time will be recorded; again, they
will be told to work as rapidly as pos
sible and the time of each member of
the group will be taken by stop-watch;
and the third variation will be to allow
a limited amount of time for the group,
each member stopping at the signal
whether he lias completed the reading or
The effects of practice will also be
tested, according to Dr. Crosland. This
will be determined by recording the re
sults of tests made by students in the
school of journalism at the beginning of
the year and comparing them with sim
ilar tests at. (he close of the year. A
test of the legibility of different fouts
to type will likewise be made if time
permits, said Dr. Crosland.
Dr. Crosland to Read Proof.
Copy for the tests lias already been
sent to the composing room of the Uni
versity press. When the matter is in
type, proofs will be read carefully by
Dr. Crosland to see that the desired er
| rors and only those are present. The
tests will then be ready for use.
Dr. Crosland brings to this work not
only the interest of the trained psychol
ogist but also that of the practical print
er and proof-reader as well. At the ugc
of 14, he began work in the composing
room of a weekly paper. “The Standard”

vacation time found him in the news

job shops in Atlanta, Oeorgia, and at
another time was connected with “The

three years. During his undergraduate
days at the University of South Caro

Formations Look Liko Work of Man
But Are Basalt; Pictures and Data
Sent To Dr. Packard.
Prehistoric architects who scattered
iniocene mansions nud paleozoic palaces
indiscriminately over ancient landscapes
should have labeled their corner stones.
According to Dr. E. L. Packard, head
of the geology department, data and
photographs were forwarded to him from
the Medford country some time ago pur
porting to be proof that the pre-Colum
bian dwellers of that region were domi
ciled in snug petrographic bungalows.
Although l)r. Packard did not visit
the place where the carved pillars of
rock were found protruding above the
ground on a grassy elevation, the de
scription and composition of the sup
posed pillars convinced him that the col
umnar rocks were of basaltic formation,
lie explains that the columnar formation
is characteristic of basalt, the igneous
rock having split vertically when cool
Dr. Packard agrees with the- discov
ers of the supposed work of ancient
man near Medford that the arrange
ment of the apparently-carved pillars is
peculiar and suggestive of intelligent ar
rangement, and that if the rock were
sandstone instead of basalt the surface
indications would easily be misleading.
At tbe request of Clara Taylor, indus
trial secretary for the Y. W. C. A. in
the northwest, a complete survey of all
the girls on the campus has been com
piled by the practical service branch of
the college Y. W. The purpose of the
industrial committee is to fiud the num
ber and character of the fields of work
which women cover.
Of the 775 women registered in the
University over 200 held commercial po
sitions timing the summer and the range
of those positions was wide. One girl
played in the Heilig theater in Portland,
one managed a farm all summer, and one
rau u cannery. Two girls were lookouts
in the forestry service, one was assistant
manager of the Meier and Frank Dairy
Lunch, and still another did tinting in a
photographer’s shop. Nine gjrls taught,
four were laboratory assistants in doc
tors’ offices, four others reported for
newspapers, five were telephone or tele
graph operators, eight did housework
and thirteen did outside work, ns fruit
picking and working in canneries. Of

fifty-seven in all arc listed under that
heading, and clerking comes next with a

for Cup to Start Next
Week, Says Coach.
The senior and freshman basketball
teams were defeated by the juniors and
sophomores in the first two games of the
intramural basketball season, played yes
terday afternoon. The second year men
took the freshmen into camp to the time
of 14-11. The juniors defeated the
seniors by the narrow margin of 18-17.
Both games were hotly contested. The .
excellent team work of the juniors
coupled with the accurate basket shoot
ing of Veateh was largely responsible for
the senior defeat. Veateh annexed eight
points for his team.
Guldager proved a tower of strength
for the seniors at center, securing four
baskets. Good floor work and speedy
passing coupled with the ability of the
sophomores to convert the many fouls
spelled victory over the first year men. A

'Dr. Crosland, Psychologist, to
Examine Readers of
' Printed Matter.
Copy Already Prepared and
on Press; Mistakes
to be^Checked.
Dr. II. It. Crosland, of the depart
ment of psychology of the University
has prepared u series of tests to deter
mine the kind and frequency of optical
illusions which affect proof-readers. It
is a well known fact that errors arc fre
quently found in printed matter even
though it has passed through the hands
of experienced and capable proof-read
ers. “This phenomenon is thought to be
due to one or another of several sorts of
optical illusions,” says Dr. Crosland. A
proof-reader, for example, may think he
sees letters where nothing but white
space actually exists; or lie may fail to
sec transposed letters in a word; or he
many fuil to observe an incorrect letter
substituted for the correct one.
The proposed tests are to be given to
four different groups of five people
each. One group will consist of profes
sors of the school of journalism. An
other, a group of beginning students in
the school of journalism; third, a group
of students in the department of psy
chology, and fourth, a group of experi
enced printers from the newspaper and
job offices of-Kugene. Arrangements
for these groups, with the exception of
the down-town printers’ group, have al
ready been made, according to Dr. Cros

lish Setting.
“The Cassilis Engagement,” a four
act comedy by St. John Hankin, will be
given in Guild theatre on November 4
and r> by the company as the 74tli play

The story is of a young English coun

mother is face to face with the task of
severing the engagement into which he
lias plunged.
Social Contrast Used.
Her plan is to bring the youDg lady

different position.

ing, and Is somewhat surprised to see
that his people apparently make no ob
jection to Ids plans.
Tft. make the contrast more vivid, Mrs.,
Cassilis invites a number of her friends
to stay with her, and the way they mix
with Mrs. Barrage and her daughter,
tile -young lady to whom Geoffrey Cas
silis is engaged brings in some delight
ful comedy that carries the play through
with tense interest to the end.
Marian Gilstrap Takes Lead.
The part of Ethel Barrage, who
makes one love her despite her lowly
birth, is taken by Marian Gilstrap.
Goeffrey Cassilis, a splendid type of

sophisticated yet not very sharp, is
taken by George Sterns.
