Appreciation is Expressed by

12,000 Volumes, Weighing 10
Tons, to Occupy 1400
Feet of Shelf
“The gift of the memorial library made
by Judge Fenton is one of the most
notable in the history of the University,”
said President P. I,. Campbell yesterday
in expressing his appreciation of Judge
Fenton’s contribution to the law school
library. “It is probably the largest gift
in actual value ever made to the Uni
versity,” he said. The Fenton collec
tion includes some 12,000 volumes of law
reports covering many fields of legal
“The other important gifts were those
of Henry Villnrd. who gave a cash en
dowment of $55,000. gifts to the Failing
Reekman prize contest fund, amounting
to $3,500, and the gifts to the Woman’s
b ,:!ding, no one of which was in excess
of $5,000,” continued President (’amp
bell. “This magnificent law7 library,
which is rated as the best private li
brary west of Chicago, comes at a pe
culiarly oppoturne time as it furnishes a
most substantial basis for the period of
strong development on which the law
school is entering. With a library unex
celled in the west and a strong teach
ing staff the law school will take rank
among the best in the country,” he
went on.
“Fireproof Building Wanted.
“The gift is in memory of Kenneth
Lucas Fenton who was a graduate of
the University of Oregon law school. We
hope that the University may sometime
be able to house the collection in a new
law school building of fireproof construc
tion and amply provided with steel
stacks. It is a noble memorial to a
young man of high character and great
promise who. if he had lived, would
have proven a most useful citizen of the
“This memorial will afford a large op
portunity to thousands of students and
will serve as an inspiration to the finest
achievement,” said the president in con
Dean William G. Hale, of the law
school, not only expressed great appre
ciation on the part of the department
for the gift but also paid glowing tribute
to Judge Fenton’s personality and

Training for Track and Field
There is no event on the track and
field programme that results in better
all-round development for the body than
the pole vault. It builds up the arms,
shoulders, buck and abdomen, and
though the upper part of the body is
brought mostly into play, the legs are
not neglected. It is an event which re
quires' a great deal of study and prac
tice before one becomes proficient. The
requirements for this event alone are
what is required for all the other events
Put together; that is, speed, strength,
judgment, nerve, ability and endurance.
Tall men are generally the best vaulters.
but I have known several athletes who
were not over 5 feet 6 inches who were
able to go over 12 feet consistently.
The beginner should be very careful
and see to it that everything is in good
shape before trying to vault. See that
the take-off is level so that the ankle
"ill not turn; the pit should be soft to
eliminate any jar to the body on lighting;
the hole for the pole should be safe, and
"hat is of most importance is the pole;
make sure that it is strong. The run
and take-off are very important and
should be measured similarly to that of
the broad jump. The take-off should be
arranged so that the pole, body and
ground form a triangle. Assuming that
the jumper is right-handed; that is, the
fight is the top hand, the pole should be
grasped as i in climbing a rope, thumbs
Pointing upwards. This is the position
at the take-off, only the lower hand is
slipped from the first position (one to be
described later) preparing for a strong
The beginner will no doubt find a
great deal of trouble hero. If the take
off is too far away from the hold the
vaulter will be thrown against the pole
and if too close a heavy jerky strain will
be on the shoulders, which sometimes
means a bad fall. A great deal of care
and attention should be paid to this one
point if one wishes to excel in the event.
There should be no jerk or heavy strain
on the shoulders if the take-off is taken
properly. Another cause of this may be
that when the pole is placed in the hole
the arms are in a cramped position when
the hands are slipped. If the vaulter.
whe nplaeing the pole, will slip the hand
and raise the pole to a position straight
over the head with arms almost extend
ed as if reaching and the take-off is cor
rect, he will find the jerk will be elim
inated. The reason why 1 dwell so much
on this point is that it is very important
and if it is not smoothed up the great
est height will be impossible.
The run is anywhere from twenty to
thirty yards. A mark should be made
half way between starting point and
where the vaulter wishes to take-off
from and an effort made to hit this
mark with the jumping foot. This will
not be exact, and marks should be
moved forward or backward according
to the distance the take-off was missed.

E. W. Allen says Trial Proves

Universities and Newspapers
Are Visited in Principal
Cities of'East
The advanced students of the school
of journalism have demonstrated an abil
ity to conduct a system of student con
trol of class work, and should such
procedure ever be instituted it would
meet with success, in the opinion of Eric
W. Allen, dean of the school of journal
ism. Dean Allen, who has just returned
from an extended absence while attend
ing the National Editorial Association
Convention in Florida bases his opin
ion upon the amount and quality of the
work done and the high standard of
scholarship maintained in his journal
ism classes which were conducted by the
students during the time he was in the
Three weeks before the close of
school last term, Dean Allen left to at
tend the convention. He outlined the
work for the remainder of the term, sub
stituting the writing of a paper for the
final examination. The performance of
the work, attendance of classes and
amount of study was left entirely with
the students. The class of work done
demonstrates, says the dean, the fact
that the students are not only willing,
but able to carry on the study and edu
cate themselves, and that they do not
need a disciplinarian, only a guide and
advisor, in their studies.
Dean Is Gratified.
“I was immensely gratified” stated
the dean, “by the interest and applica
tion of the students to the work. , If
there is ever a movement on the part of
the student body to take a more active
part in the handling of the collegiate work
I shall certainly not oppose it.” The
dean expressed himself as particularly
pleased with the good record of the pub
lishing class.
nue in tne r.ast, uean auen passed
through 28 states, from Oregon to Flor
ida and New York and Massachusetts,
in almost every instance he visited uni
versities and colleges and the larger
newspapers throughout the country.
“It is interestting to notice,” he said,
“that there is scarcely a college in the
country that is not over-crowded. Every
where with the possible exception of
Princeton, the universities do not have
the equipment they .need—and appear to
be camping out. None of them, however,
have the conglomeration of ‘wooden
shacks’ which are so prominent on the
Oregon campus.”
Newspapers Palatial.
On the other hand, the dean cited the
improvement in -equipment aud location
of the newspapers. Where, a decade
ago, it was traditional for the newspa

sumed today spacious and comfortable
proportions, the acme of which is reach
ed in the offices of the Saturday Even
ing Post, which are almost palatial. “In
contrast to this,” he said, “where the
colleges once were reputed to be con
ducted froiii spacious offices, the need
for space has reduced them to the most

Full Attendance Is Asked;
Music to be Offered by
A last-minute switch in the ar

of the organization department, of the
chamber of commerce of the United
States, to the University this morning
as assembly speaker in place of E. B.
Piper, editor of the Portland Oregon
Mr. Brown, who arrived last, evening,
through n misunderstanding, will be un
able to remain over until 8 o’clock this
evening. Mr. riper, in the meantime,
had suffered a slight injury to his foot,
j which prevented his leaving Portland to
day. A conference between Dr. E. C.
j Robbins, dean of the school of cora
: merce, and President Campbell resulted,
in the president’s arranging to devote
the assembly period to the chamber of
commerce speaker.
Mr. Brown, who is a recognized au
thority on the subject of commercial or
ganization, is here to install the Univer
sity chamber of commerce into member
ship in the chamber of commerce of the
United States.* It was announced by
Dean Robbins last night that a full at
tendance of students is desired, since the
speaker is one whom all will enjoy hear
ing. The installation! will be held at as
j The campus chamber, recently organ
i ized by major students in the school of
commerce, already has approximately
250 members. Byron O. Garrett, a
senior, is president. The assembly, Dean
Robbins says, will be Mr. Brown’s sole
| speaking appearance in Eugene, since
other appointments call him out of the
c'ty immed’ntely.
The University orchestra will furnish
the music for today’s program. “Katin
ka”, which was one of the most popular
selections with the various audiences on
the orchestra’s vacation tour, will be
one of the numbers.
Wide Brogans Get Tangled Up With Ac
celerator Instead of Brake As
Train Approaches.
Broad-soled shoes may be prescribed
for the health by physicians, but they
arc not the proper foot-gear to ■wear
while driving a racing car, according to
“Bill” Hayward, who yesterday noon
narrowly escaped death in front of a
southbound Oregon Electric train at
Lasen, two miles from Eugene.
“Bill” approached the railroad cross
ing at a fair rate of speed, but failed
to observe the approaching train until
it was nearly upon him. As he attempt
ed to put on the brakes, his broad-soled
shoe touched the accelerator, and it was
only by his presence of mind in swing
ing the machine parallel with the train
that saved both himself and his wife,
who was riding with him.
In his mad flight up the railroad com
pany’s right-of-way, “Bill” negotiated
one ditch, a bad bump and took out two
I fence posts and about 10 yards of barb
: ed wire fencing before bringing the ma
i chine to a stop. The drive wheel on the
right side of the car sunk in a hole as
I “Bill” attempted to drive back on the
road, and he was unable to extricate
himself from his predicament until suc
! cored by a passing farmer who pulled
1 him back on the highway.
Neither of the passengers were in
' jured, and the car suffered only to the
i extent of a few scratches on the hood.
Mrs. George T. Gerlinger, of Portland
member of the state board of regents
is campus visitor today and will inspect

Campbell hall. Mrs. Gerlinger has been
much interested in the new buildings for

in the selection and arranging of the in
terior decorations during the construc
tion period.

student Advisory Committee States
Definite Policy Regarding Such
Announcement has been made by the
student advisory committee in regard to
its policy toward the practice of inter
lining language text books with trans-,
lations of the subject matter. The state
ment. given out by the committee is as
“The Student Advisory Committee, in
order to handle fairly certain cases re
ferred to it by members of the Univer
sity faculty, has recently been forced to
define accurately its policy in regard to
the practice of interlining language text
books with more or less complete trans
lations. The committee has consulted j
with the departments interested, has
considered the matter carefully, and is
forced to take the ground that inter
lining text books with .translations of
words which may be called for in daily
recitation constitutes cheating in class,
for the reason that the daily recitation
counts toward the final grade in the
“Departments expect new words in
eacli day’s lesson to be learned by mem
bers of the class so that the words can
Inter be used when the members of the
class are called upon to recite. The
grade in the daily work depends very
largely upon evidence of ability to use
correctly these new words. Hence the
practice of writing the translation of
these new words constitutes a decep
tion of the teacher for the purpose of se
curing a grade higher than is honestly
deserving and therefore comes clearly
Within the difinition of cheating in Uni
versity work.
“Because there has been no defined
policy in regard to this form of cheat
ing, the committee has hitherto been
lenient in dealing with such cases com
ing before it. It makes this public an
nouncement in order that, students may
understand clearly the position in which
they place themselves when they yield to
the temptation of making marginal or
interlinear notes for reference in their
language recitations.”
Student Advisory^ Com tnitf6e.
Mme. McGrew Gives Second of
Mu Phi Lectures
“Voice Technique” will be the topic
discussed by Mine. Rose McGrew at
Guild hall, Saturday, at 5) o’clock. Her
tulk is the second of a series of lec
tures on music technique; given under
the auspices of Mu Phi Epsilon, national
honorary music sorority. The first was
given by John Stark Evans, March 16.
The series of lectures is being given
to raise money fur a scholarship fund
which is to be used for worthy and tal
ented students who are selected by the
sorority. The first scholarship will be
given next year, and the sorority hopes
to award one every year thereafter, to
some Oregon student. The scholarship
will be for work in the Oregon school
of music. Mu Phi Epsilon is the first
honorary sorority to offer a scholarship
in the University.
“Mme. McGrew has had a wonderful
class in voice here this year,” said Mrs.
A. C. Dixon, wife of Regent Dixon, in
discussing the lecturer. “It is a fine
thing for us to have her here; she is do
ing such wonderful work. She has had a
wide experience, and is a recognized au
thority on the subject which she will
discuss,” continued Mrs. Dixon.
The next of the series of talks will
be on violin symphony, by Rex Under
wood and the concluding two lectures
will be on piano technique, by Dean
John Landsbury. Dates for these will
be announced later.
Library Gets Volumes of Fiction, Poetry
and Philosophy.
“ ‘The Journal of_ a Disappointed
Man’ by Bruce Frederick Cummings was
the subject of an editorial in the Morn
ing Oregonian a short time ago,” said
Mrs. Mabel McClain in speaking of some
new books just received by the library.
Others are, “Accepting the Universe,”
a philisophical essay by John Burroughs
and an illustrated book on “California
Highways,” by Ben Blow. Among the
fiction were “The New Poetry” by
Monroe and Henderson: O’Brien’s “Best
Short Stories for 1920”; “Form the
Hidden Way" by James Branch Cabell,
and “Moon Calf” by Floyd Dell.
Student Who Copied in Final
Is Permanently
Two Are Fined 10 Hours Each
And Others Lose
Term Credit
A report, of the recent decisions of the
student advisory committee shows that
seven cases of cheating have been hand
led by it since December, when a report
of 20 cases was published. Of these
•seven, one student was found guilty und
was dismissed from the University; one
was suspended until October, 1021; two
students were fined ten hours each; and
the remaining were denied credit for
the term’s work in the courses in which
the cheating occurred.
A limited number of infractions of the
few rules laid down by the University,
not cases of cheating, have also been
handled recently by the committee, in
cluding one case of failure to observe
discipline in the department of military
The decisions of the committee have
been ns follows:
Case 30—Student was convicted of
copying from a neighbor during term
final examination. Previous scholarship
record very low. Decision: Permanent
dismissal from the University. '
Case 31—Student copied from a neigh
bor during a quizz. Decision: Same
course to be taken for the term without
credit, and to be repeated without credit
in event of failure to pass.
One Concealed Notes.
Case 32—Student concealed notes, in
paper used in final examination, although
there was evidence to show that the
notes were used little if at all. Student
also answered whispered inquiry of
neighbor on one point in one question.
The committee took the position that in
terchange of information on any point
whatsoever is absolutely prohibited in
examinations, and that student should
avoid even the appearance of evil in the
matter of textbooks, notebooks, and
notes, together with all similar material,
during examination periods. Decision:
Ten hours of University credit to be de
ducted from transcript.
Case 33—This student solicited and
received information on a minor point
during final evamination. Decision:
Ten hours fine. It is the policy of the
committee to suspend or dismiss from
the University for cheating in any final
examination, unless the offense is genu
inely of minor degree.
Case 34—This student was convicted
of repeated copying during monthly
quizzes, students of high standing in
the class were “spotted,” and Case No.
34, taking a seat next such a student,
would benefit by the other’s work. De
cision: Suspension until October, 1921:
re-admission on probation for one year,
with disbarment from all student activi
ties during that year.
Student Admits Copying
Case 35—Student made frank state
ment of having copied in one question in
an early term quiz/, because of late reg
istration and failure to have covered the
work up to the time of the quizz. De
cision: Credit denied in the course for
one term, the student agreeing to pass
it with a good grade.
Case 36 plus—Through misapprehen
sion, an instructor who had not read
the president’s order requiring all cases
of cheating of whatsoever kind to be re
ferred to the student advisory commit
tee, had himself handled a number of
cases of cheating in daily quizzes, by
notifying the students that they would
receive an F in the course for the term.
Under the circumstances the instructor
was given authority by the committee to
handle the cases described in this way,
