Music Will Be Furnished By
Portland Symphony
Dr. Reinhardt, Mills College,
and Rabbi Wise Main
The formal opening and dedication of
the Women’s building will take place
Saturday, May 7, and the exercises will
take up the entire day. Extensive prepa
rations have already been made for the
program, including speeches and musical
numbers, which will be concluded by a
concert by the Portland Symphony or
“The event is not only in itself a fit
tidg climax to the opening of the Wo
men’s building,” said Dean Landsbury, of
the school of music, regarding the orches
tra’s appearance on the campus, “but
it is a most important musical event for
Eugene, because it will show the spirit of
co-operation and gratitude felt by the
University toward Portland. This con
cert ties up the two interests and shows
our desire to show our appreciation for
Portland by our desire to help her or
Portland Man to Play.
David Campbell, pianist of Portland
and formerly an Oregon student, will be
a soloist for the orchestra and will play
the Tscliaikowsky concerto. Dean Lands
bur.v considers him one of the greatest
of the younger generation of pianists and
his playing of the concerto is an event
which should not be missed.
Dr. Aurelia Rinehart, president of
Mills College, Oakland, will be chief
speaker of the morning services, and will
talk on the importance of physical edu
cation for women. Rabbi Jonah B. Wise
will deliver the invocation at the after
noon exercises of dedication and accept
ance. Governor Oleott, Lawrence
Wheeler, of the Portland Telegram, Dean
Straub, Homer Angell, Frank Chambers.
'Mrs. Alexander Thompson, A. C. Dixon,
and Judge J. W. Hamilton will give short
addresses, and Bishop Walter T. Sumner
will pronounce the benediction.
Most Interesting In History.
“The opening of the Women’s building
will be one of the most interesting dedi
cations in the' history of the University,” j
said President Campbell. “The dedica
tion is in the recognition of the gener
osity of the many friends of the Univer
sity who have contributed more than
$100,000 towards its construction and of
the generosity of the state for the ap
propriation granted for the building.”
The place of the Women’s building on
the campus will be two-fold: First, it
houses the department of hygiene and
physical education for women, to which
approximately two-thirds of the building
is devoted; secondly, the east wing of the
building will fill a long-felt need in the
social life of the University. Club rooms,
and social rooms for University people
and alumni will accommodate every or
ganization. large or small, making the
building of singular importance and in
terest to every member of the University
Professor Graham Taylor, of Chicago
University, to Speak at Sun
day Meeting.
Mother’s Day, May 8, will be observed
at the University of Oregon by a 3 o’clock
1 esper service in Villard hall, at which
Professor Graham Taylor, of the Univer
s'ty of Chicago, will be the principal
Professor Graham Taylor comes as a
result of his friendship with Bishop Sum*
llpi\ who has characterized the Professor
as the best informed social service work
er in the United States.
At the student assembly, May 12, the
professor will speak again, probably on
some industrial subject, according to M.
H- Douglass, who is in charge of bring
ing the speaker to the campus.
Between his two speeches at the Uni
versity, Professor Graham will address
meetings at O. A. C. au<T In Portland.
Professor Taylor, besides being a
theological professor, is associate editor

Gratke, Guyon, Youel, Allen
and Maxwell Honored.
Five men were yesterday informed of
their election to Sigma Delta Chi, na
tional honorary journalistic fraternity,
and arc now wearing linotype slugs on
their lapels as a symbol of their pledg
doin. The new members are Floyd Max
well, Kenneth Youel, Wilford Allen, Char
les Gratke and Fred Guyon.
Each of the neophytes is a major in
the school of journalism and all but Al
len and Guyon are members of the soph
omore class. Allen is a junior and Guyon
a special student. It is the custom of
the fraternity to elect twice a year, once
in the fall and again in the spring. Mem
bers are as a rule chosen at the end of
the sophomore year or at the beginning
of the junior period.
An active part in student publications
has been taken by each of the newly
elected men. Maxwell has acted as sport
editor of the Emerald for the past year
and was also a member of last year’s
news staff. This year he is editing the.
sport section of the Oregana. Kenneth
Youel served on the news staff of the
Emerald for some time and was later
promoted to a night editor, which posi
tion be now holds.
Wilford Allen is also a night editor on
the Emerald. He was formerly city edi
tor of the Grants Pass Courier, having
left school last year to take that position.
Charles Gratke has for the past year
served as news editor of the Emerald.
He was a member of last year’s news
staff and also was on the Oregana staff
last year. This year he is working with
Maxwell in editing the sport section of
the Oregana. He at one time was city
editor of the Astoria Budget.
Fred Guyon has been a reporter on
the news staff of the Emeralcl since the
beginning of the fall term and has proved
himself a good writer and a dependable
member of the* staff. The old members
of the fraternity now on the campus are
Harris Ellsworth, Harry Smith, Alexan
der Brown, Raymond Lawrence, Gene
Kelty. John Dierdorff, Stan Eisman,
Raymond Tester and Carlton Logan.
Prof. H. R. Douglass Publishes Treatise
to Make Possible Systematic
Study in Schools.
To make possible a systematic study of
the teaching of algebra in the high
schools of the United States, is the pur
pose of a study just completed by Pro
fessor Harl It. Douglass, of the school
of education. The result of the study,
together 'with an elaborate system of
tests devised by Professor Douglass is
published in a pamphlet entitled “The
Derivation and Standardization of a Ser
ies of Diagnostic Tests for the Funda
mentals of First Year Algebra.
In his preface, Professor Douglass
“It is the purpose of this study to do
e following things: First, to deter
i„c what seem to be the fundamental
rinal processes in first year algebra
; commonly taught in the secondary
hools of the United States; second, to
leet for each such fundamental process
number of problems which require for
cir solution varying degrees of mastery
these fundamental processes in their
irious schoolroom aspects; third, to
andardize the results obtained by giv
„ the problems so selected to a large
Sober of first year high school students
, that definite objective standards of
tainment may be set up; and fourth.
, point out the uses and values, and
nitatious of tests so devised.”
Besides numerous tests, graduated and
instructed so as to be easily applicable

16 Pieces of Work in Sciences
Accepted By Committee
As Participants.
Experiments Now In Progress
to Be Materially Aided
By Fund.
t Although members of the faculty of the
University of Oregon have done consid
erable research in past years, and a few
of them have received small special al
lotments for materials and equipment,
the X niversity has never set aside a
definite budget for research until 1921.
This year it has made the first of what
is expected to be an annual series of re
search appropriations, from which the
faculty men will be assisted in their
original contributions to the mass of hu
man knowledge.
The faculty committee appointed to
administer the research budget for this
year has accepted 16 pieces of work as
participants in the appropriation. Because
the budget is still comparatively small,
the men doing these researches had to
be held down rigidly; and several re
searches were crowded off altogether.
Nevertheless, a number of men in the
pure sciences, and in law, wil be en
abled this year to go ahead with import
ant original work.
Caswell Conducts Research.
A specimen piece of research included
among the 16--is that in the thermo
electric properties of metals, which is
being conducted by A. E. Caswell, Ph.
D., professor of physics, ,who besides
previous work at the University of Ore
gon has already worked on this problem
in the\ east one year under the auspices
of the National Research Council. The
research involves a study of the rela
tion between the electric, thermal, and
magnetic behavior of strips of differ
ent metals. These metals are subjected
to varying temperatures, and are ob
served for the effect on their atomic
and molecular properties, including the
mechanism of the conduction of electric
ity in solids. It is Dr. Caswell’s hope
that the outcome will have a practical
application to the determination of the
proportions of metals that go to form
alloys having definite required proper
ties: in other words, he is seeking a short
cut to the composition of certain alloys.
Several years more will be consumed in
this research if it seems that it will be
successful. A few hundreds of dollars
will be available from the research bud
get for equipment, such as containers
for liquid air, and for liquid air itself,
so that the metals may be studied under
[ extremely low temperature; also for an
! electro-magnet that they may be studied
within at magnetic field.
Tables to Be Prepared.
An interesting piece of research in
mathematics is being carried on by W.
E. Milne, Ph. D., professor of mathe
matics, who expects to prepare tables
that will make possible the solution of
problems in certain types of wave mo
tion. An important practical application
Is found in hydraulic engineering.
Other pure science researches are in
progress in chemistry, geology, psychol
oby. and biology. Roger J. Williams,
Ph. D.. assistant professor of chemistry,
for example, is carrying on a research
in the oxidation and reduction of or
ganic electrolytes. II. R. Crosland, as
sistant professor of psychology, has just
published an extensive research captioned
“A Qualitative Analysis of the Process
of Forgetting.” which has been submitted
as his thesis for the Ph. D. degree.
Grant Made to Clark.
Tn the social sciences, considerable re
search is under way in the schools of
law and education, and . the department
of history. A small grant was made R.
0. Clark, Ph. D., head of the department
of history, in connection with an investi
gation in early northwest history, for
which the copying of records in the Brit
ish Museum Library is necessary. In
the school of law. Professors Thomas A.
Larremore and Sam B. Warner are mak
ing a study of the workmen’s compensa
tion laws of Oregon. Besides this. Pro
fessor Larremore is making a study of
the office of public defender. The school
of education has three pieces of research
under way, conducted by II. D. Sheldon.

Strange Sights To Be Seen
In 1935 by Mr. and Mrs. U.O.
Alumni When They Return
(By Mailel ene Bogan.)
University of Oregon, November 15,
11K5;>.—Among the visitors to the campus
to attend the U. of O.-O. A. C. football
game this week were Mr. and Mrs. U.
O. Alumnus, of Portland, whose son,
Itob, is the well known captain of the
varsity. Mr. and Mrs. Alumnus were
prominent in the University in the days
when Johnson hall was the center of the
campus »and the young medical students
were still struggling along in dear old,
cramped old Deady.
Did you ever wonder what Mr. and
Mrs. Alumnus would see? At least two
men on the campus now can tell you, and
those men are President P. L. Campbell
and W. K. Newell, superintendent of
University buildings and grounds. Not
only can they tell you, but they can show
you pictures of the way the campus will
look “When Dreams Come True.”
First of all, Mr. and Mrs. Alumnus,
of Portland, would not leave the train
way down at the other end of Willamette
street, but at “University Station.” Oh
yes, indeed, there will be such a place.
Across Eleventh street, back of Villard,
will be the artistic little station where
all trains will stop at “University of
Oregon.” Crossing Eleventh street they
would enter the real front door of the
University. This front door will be in
the form of an entrance archway open
ing onto the path leading up through the
campus between the Oregon building and
the Commerce building. Crossing Thir
teenth street, the path will lead through
what is now Kincaid field, but it will
not be' a field then. It will be a beautiful
quadrangle with buildings for classrooms
and science laboratories. The second
building on the right, of this quardangle,
Bob will point out ns “The Library."
Continuing along the tree-lined path,
they will enter the Memorial Court. This
court, erected in honor of the University
men who served in the world war, is one
of the most beautiful and impressive
spots on the campus. It will stand at
the entrance of a massive auditorium
which will no doubt bo the center of the
student life of the University. The wing
of the auditorium to the right of the
court is a sound-proof music building. It
seems that the student of 1950 who as
pires to literary fame will not be dis
turbed by those who dream of operatic
The left wing of the auditorium will
be the University museum. Yes, a
museum—that hope and dream of the
days of 1921. Back of the auditorium is
the building that was known in the days
of ’21 as the music building but it is now
used as one of a group of men’s dormi
Turning cast from these, Bob will no
doubt, point out the residence halls for
University women. Hendricks hall and
Susan Campbell hall are as of old, only
doubled. Yes doubled. On each side of
these halls, with a central dining room
between, is another hall, practically a
duplicate of the first two. Imagine if
you can, two buildings which together
will house 450 girls.
In (he center of the women's quadran
gle, directly behind Johnsou ahll will be
the household arts building. No, Mary
Spillcr hall is not here, its place has
been taken by the addition to Hendricks
No doubt Mr. and Mrs. Alumnus will
find many more changes, ,but our imagi
nation fails us just now.
Program Tonight to Be Best
Yet, Says Ingram.
“Tonight’s the night,” says Joe In
gram, press agent for the Men’s Glee
Club. “How do I know that it is the
night? Because the gang is all hopped
up. You’d think that they had all been
drinking that old prohibition drink the
hoboes used to call alki.
“Tonight’s program has the Portland
one cheated,” he continued. “It is lit
erally bristling with local color. Perhaps
it would be better for all local celebrities
to stay away so as not to be hit, but
all others are sure to enjoy it. In sec
ond thought, too, I should advise all
notables to be there in order that the
remarks of the club may not be swelled
by the telling and retelling of hearers
into positive slander before it reaches
their ears.
“And when the gang comes on with
‘A Little Specialty’ you’ll thing that
some of the contraband drops are right
off stage. A big laugh is guaranteed
to everyone who is in good physical con
“She’s sure been a great season,” Joe
said. “Of course, I’m not patting us
on the back or anything like that, but
we’ve knocked them for three and four
pyramids everywhere we’ve been. In
Portland we had to come back sevpral
times after each number to keep that
Auditorium full of people from tearing
the place down.
“Now don’t think that this is mere
press dope.” I’m backing everything
I’ve said. We’ve got the men and we’ve
got the director and we’ve been giving all
we have to put the club over. We are
willing for the listeners fonight to judge
our success.
“And, as a final bit of advice, be down
to the box office early this morning
Those seats are going to go fast.”
According to schedule, the moon eclipsed
Thursday night. And, according to
schedule—it went out—completely. Stu
dents who stayed up until the witching
hour of 12 o’clock saw the celestial hap
penings in totality. Several who stayed
up Wednesday night under the misap
prehension that 'it was to take place
hten, missed the performance Thursday.
.T. E. Allison, of the University business
office, is the only one who is reported
to have waited up for the moon both
Wedndesday and Thursday nights.
Sixteen Teams to Compete In
Opening Next Week.
The inter-sorority debates have been
postponed from Tuesday until Wednes
day night of next week. The debates
will be held at 7:30, but it has not been
decided in what buildings they will take
place. After these first# debates take
place the one half that receive the low
est number of points will be dropped out
and finals will be held soon after to de
cide on the winners.
As the arrangement now stands the
negative Alpha Phi team will meet Hen

Professional Preparation Work
Offered By Oregon to
Degrees Provided Por After
Completion of Fourth
Year’s Training.
Three- year curricula in pre-engineer
ing which will fulfill the requirements
of the first two years in professional
engineering schools, and which will in
addition provide that amount of work in
the pure sciences and the humanities,
which has become indispensable to great
engineers, was approved by the state
board of higher curricula at its meeting
in Portland on Monday. This prescribed
course of study, which covers pre-engi
neering work in mechanical, electrical,
civil, chemical, mining, and certain special
branches, will become effective Septem
ber, 1921. Dr. A. E. Caswell, professor
of physics, is chairman of the new course
of study.
Engineer's Degree In Six Years.
Arrangements have already been en
tered into with about a dozen selected
engineering schools whereby students who
have completed the three-year course at
the University will be admitted on such
a basis that they may obtain the bach
elor’s degree in engineering at the end.
of two additional years, and the pro
fessional graduate degree of engineer at
the end of the third year after leaving
Oregon. Upon the satisfactory completion
or the first year’s work at the engineer
ing school, the University of Oregon will
grant to these students the degree of
bachelor of arts. In this way the stu
dent may obtain both the bachelor of
arts degree and the first professional
degree in five years, or the arts degree,
the bachelor’s degree in engineering, and
the professional engineering degree in
six years.
The requirements for the first year
include English, nine hours; mathematics,
including advanced algebra, trigonometry,
and analytical geometry, 12 Fours; inor
ganic chemistry, 12 lionrs; advanced or
elementary French or German, 12 or 15
hours; and mechanical drawing, six hours.
Students who intend to pursue courses
in civil or mining engineering and who
present two units of either French or
German for entrance may be permitted
to substitute elementary French or Ger
man during the sophomore year. Those
intending to study chemical engineering
should take German during both the
freshman and sophomore years. In addi
tion to tins course, nil men students
are required to devote three hours each
week to military science and to physical
training throughout the first tw'f» years.
Courses Are Prescribed.
In the Nophomore year the student
is required to take calculus, 12 hours;
general physics, nine hours; French lit
erature or advanced French or scientific
or advanced German or elementary Span
ish, nine, 12 or 15 hours; descriptive
geometry, four hours; advanced mechan
ical drawing, two hours; analytical chem
istry, six or eight hours; and dynamic
geology, four hours.
The program of studies' for the junior
year is intended to articulate the work
done in the University with the course
of study which the student proposes to
pursue in the technical institution. For
this reason the student is supposed to
have selected the school which he in
tends to enter and the course of study
to be pursued there in not later than the
beginning of the junior year.
The regular program consists of cer
tain required subjects plus a number of
electives, the latter becoming prescribed
also according to the branch of engineer
ing or technical work contemplated. These
required subjects are advanced analytical
geometry and calculus, three hours;
strength of materials, eight hours; ad
vanced general physics, niue hours; prin
ciples of economics, eight hours; and
advanced economies, four hours.
Certain Electives Recommended.
The elective subjects recommended are
kinematics, six or nine hours; differen
tial equations, six hours: physical chem
istry. 12 hours; structural geology, two
hours; field geology, two hours; princi
ples of assaying, four to six hours;
practical astronomy, three hours; graphic
statics, four hours; bacteriology, eight
hours; English, eight, hours; principles
of accounting, 12 hours. Those especially
recommended for civil engineering are
