Americana inclined to spend their time
reading and studying arc called “book
ish" and are often left out of the more
frivolous things, but in France the

ference was brought out b,v Germaine
Dew. a little French girl, whose home
was in Paris prior to 1914, in a talk at
ti recent Y. W. C. A. meeting in charge
of foreign women on the campus.
Continuing, Miss Dew discussed the
conditions in the French schools. This
was really the only thiug that she could
talk about for French girls do not go to
very many places other than school,
church, and sometimes to the park.
Nearly all of the common people go to
the public schools, for, while there is no
caste system there are different stratas

The parents take a very active inter
est in the schools for they are brought
in closer touch with the work on account
of the children having to do all their
studies at home.
The teacher holds a very important
place in the community and the people
never question anything that she might
do. This makes it very hard for the
children because you don’t get much
sympathy if the teacher does anything
to you, declared Miss Dew.
The result of this is that the children
worship the teacher. If the teacher
happens to dislike one pupil then the
entire school practically ostracizes that
one unfortunate child. The greatest
punishment that a teacher can give pupils
is to refuse to kiss them when they come
and go from school. According to Miss
Dew this is a terrible calamity and a
child will probably cry for hours over it.
If the teacher is against you* pupils and
parents alike side with her and ignore
the unfortunate one.
The discipline in the schools is very
strict. At the end of the year, the pupils
having the best grades are awarded
prizes. This is considered ft great honor.
The students who are poor in their stud
ies are practically ignored.
In concludirfg, Miss Dew said that she
thought she liked the American schools j
On account of lack of time the other
girls were unable to speak. Miss Dins
ilale said that she hoped the girls might
finish their trip around the world at
-some future meeting when the rest of
the foreign girls would speak.
The meeting was in charge of Ethel
Wakefield in the absence of Glyde Schue
bel, chairman of the World Fellowship
Committee. Tea was served before the
meeting began. Margaret Griffith and
Virginia Pearson poured while the fol
lowing girls served, dressed in Japanese
costumes: Jane Campbell, Vera Prud
homme, Hilda Hensely, Gertrude. Mac
Kntyre and Lettie Biddle.

Second Year Art Students Do
Oil Paintings of Oregon
The windows in the design room of
the architecture building have been very
cleverly decorated by the students who
are taking second year design. Each
window has a design done in transpar
encies that represents some epoch in the
history of Oregon.
It has been the custom in this depart
ment each year to do something in de
sign for the windows. This year they
decided to do something historical and
asked Professor It. C. Clark to give a
lecture on the history of Oregon. From
this lecture the subjects were chosen for
each of the twelve windows.
The windows facing University street
represent the Bridge of the Gods in the
era before the coming of the white man,
the Discovery of the Columbia by Gray
in 1792, Louis and Clark in 1805 and
Fort Astoria in 1811.
On the south side there arc designs of
Fort Vancouver in 1825, the Mission to
St. Louis in 1832, the coming of Jason
Lee, the first missionary in 1834 and
the other missionaries, Whitman and
Spalding in 1843.
Facing Villard are the designs rep
resenting the larger migration in 1845,
the meeting at Champoeg where Ezra
Meek took the. decisive step that kept
the settlers with the United States in
1843, Ewing bringing five hundred head
of c-attle from California to Oregon in
1847, the Whitman massacre in 1847, and
Governor Lane’s treaties with the Indi
ans in southern Oregon in 1853.
This work was done under the super
vision of Miss Helen Rhodes and was
worked out in black and white at first
and later done in colors with oil paints,
which gives it the parchment effect and
makes it as attractive from the outside
as from the inside. They will be on ex
hibition next week.
|Y. W. TO SHOW MOTION
PICTURES THIS WEEK

Saturday at Hut.
A five reel motion picture entitled,
“A Man and His Woman,” starring
Blanche Sweet, and a good comedy will
.be the program for two evenings at the
Y. M. C. A. hut Friday and Saturday
nights at 8 o’clock.
This is not an attempt to raise money
for any organization but is solely to give
the student body aud others am oppor
tunity to have an evening of wholesome
enjoyment on the campus at a low cost
The small admission, fifteen cents, to be
charged, will hardly cover the expense of
renting the films.
If this program is well attended, larger
and more expensive features will be pre
sented about every two weeks.

The Delta-Kappa Sig contest was
hard fought throughout and the first half
ended with the Kappa Sigs leading 8-7.
In the second period the Delts ran away
with the favorites, which was largely due
to the accurate shooting and speedy
floorwork of Beaver who annexed 15 of
the Delts points. Wilson and P’ortwood
played steady games at guard, breaking
up Kappa Sig passes repeatedly. For
the defeated team Andre and Roekbey
played brilliant ball, Andre having espe
cially bad luck with his shooting.
