Condition of Central Europe and China
Shows That Critical Social
Period Is Herp.
“Everybody for the Inst .TO veers lias
been saying ‘this is a critical period.’ but
there has never been such a cri-is as the
one that we are facing today ” lec’ared
Bishop AV. O. Shepard in a talk al the
• regular Y. AI. C. A. meeting Thursday
From forty to fifty thousand people are
starving in China. India is in revolt.
Central Europe is starving and otlie- dis
tressing news is coining from every part
of the world..
Since the great world war there have i
been reactions everywlmr « among the j
people, even here in our own glorious
America, continued Bishop Shepard,
American people who see and feel the
problems and are anxious to help are
asking liow they can be of aid.
At one time there were more men en
tering the minister}' than there were go
ing into the medical profession or the
legal profession, now there are three
times as many taking medicine and eight
times as many men entering the legal
profession. Church officials have been
, very concerned about this apathv. said
the speaker.
II is not: all discouraging however, con
tinued Bishop Shepard. Since the war
2,000 young men. and worfien have been
ysent to the foreign field, and at home
many new philanthropic institutions have
bee norganizod thus opening up many
new fields for service. At one time there
was only one way to serve the cause,
through tin- ministry,'and now numerous
avenues are open.
So after all. it is merely a matter of
! adjustment and we should not despair in
the face of it. said Uisliop Shepard. The
church, however, is the route of which
every other philanthropic thing is a
branch. The church is not the effect but
the cause. It is therefore important that
, we keep the church.

Instructors Active in Many Sports;
Teams to Challenge Business
Men of Portland.
('treat enthusiasm is being exhibited by
the faculty men toward all branches of
athletics offered at the University during
the winter term. And there are five
rather distinct groups, according to Dr.
DeCou. chairman of the Faculty Athletic
association, who turn out for practice
two and three times a week. They are
tlie general group, consisting of men who
are not experts at any one tiling lmt
with ambitions; tennis headed liy Sam
Bass Warner; basketball, swimming and
handball make up the five groups.
When surprise was expressed at the
faculty turn out. I)r. DeCou smiled a
knowing smile and answered. "We have
been stringing them up.” He also said
that after a little time the association
hoped to have teams in volleyball, bas
ketball and tennis so well organized that
it would be advisable to challenge the
business mens’ tennis. Dr. DeCou is
himself an ardent exponent of volleybal1
and a still more interested golfer, and
has dreams of a faculty team in that
sport in the spring. The golfers may

ranks when the time conn's.

Great Opportunity Afforded,
Says Mr. Fairbanks,
The classes in sculpturing under Avard
Fairbanks arc working on the design
for the decoration over the doorway of
the new art building. The subject for
the design is Sculpture in Relation to
Architecture, and Dean Lawijenee has
offered the person who has the best de
s’gn ; prize of $16.
Mr. Fairbanks said: “I (Consider this
a great opportunity for the students to
be able to do practical work on a build
ing while they arc still in college. Very,
few students have the chance to do any
thing so worth while in. this line of
If the students are successful in this
undertaking it will put the department
of sculpturing and modeling in the Uni
versity of Oregon on a' very high plane.
Non-resident Students Must Pay $150
Tuition in Future.
University of California, Berkeley,
.Inn. 18. — The present tuition fee of
$20 a year for non-resident students will
be increased to $150, the increase taking
effect next August. The action of the
regents was largely in response to the
opinions expressed by financial officers,
of the state that the state could no
longer afford to extend free education
to non-residents.
Enrollment figures presented by Pres
ident David P. Barrows at the meeting
showed that there were 1151 non-resi
dent students registered at. the Univer
sity last semester. It is expected that
the increased fee will yield a revenue of
about $100,000 a year to the Univer
Electrical Engineering Organization
Formed; Is Only One In West.
Oregon Agricultural College, Corvallis
1 Jan. 17. — O. A. O. now has what is
said to be the only electrical engineer
ing house club in the west. As far as
can be ascertained it is the only club, of
its kind in the country. The Electron
club, organized this fall, secured recog
nition from the student affairs commit
tee. and soon moved info a house.
The electrical engineering faculty is
well represented in the club as Professor
R. H. Dearborn, head of the department.,
is faculty advisor, and J. II. Belknap, as
sistant professor of electrical engineer
ing is a faculty member. Many express
the hope that it will be a forerunner of
similar organizations in the country.

Eastern Colleges Lag.
The eastern colleges, according to Dr
Bovat-d. are slower to undertake this
new line of health work. “Why should
wo bother with the student before he
becomes actually sick?" seems to char
acterize a good deal of their attitude, ac
cording to the dean. The Universities of
Minnesota and Wisconsin, are among the
| mose progressive Dr. Bovard found in
■ibis line.
The new system of caring for health,
while it does not neglect the attention
given the sick, is stressing the preven
tative measures. It was compared by
Dean Bovard to the ancient Chinese sys
tem. where th* family physician was paid
a fee as long as his patient remained
healthy, but when the patient was sick
fhe fee was discontinued. This, although
probably an extreme type, characterizes
the trend in modern medicine, to pre
vent illness by making the people really
West More Progressive.
' During the last, six months Dr. Bovard
lias visited universities over the entire
country, including those in New York
state. “I venture to say that, there is
none where they are doing more for the
student health than Orogeu,” he said
“Characteristically, the farther west one
comes, the more modern progress is
noted, and it. is in the idea of sensible
prevention and better physical efficiency
