THE FUTURE CAMPUS.
Since the inauguration of the recent building campaign |
of the University, and even before, some of ns have been won
dering just w,hat the University had in mind., Even now, with
most of the buildings near completion, the campus is a scat
tered-out arangement of buildings, many of them queer looking.
Oregon hall and the new school of commerce building are
queer-looking buildings. Both somehow seem to face the
wrong direction* The music building and the new home of the
school of education and the University high school are located
far to the south of most of the other buildings. It seems strange
that they were not built closed to the center of things.
We all admire the two women’s dormitory structures, hut
some of us continue to wonder at the architect who directed
that they be placed so as to hide a great deal of the magnifi
cence of the new women’s building. And the woman’s build
ing itself rears its most imposing side towards a bleak cemetery.
What object can the “powers that he” have in so arrang
ing our ouee-'beautifu 1-t,hough-small University campus f we
sometimes ask. Some of us have criticized and a great many
or ns are far from pleased at present conditions. But—
Those powers that be” are looking ahead to the future.
They have planned a future campus. Every recent building
has some part to play in the new campus, which will consist
of quadrangles, walks lined with recitation buildings, a memor
ial court, and groups of buildings devoted! to related subjects.
They have planned a beautiful campus for the future. .
Some day we shall be proud of our campus, even though wo
are not now to any marked degree. Until then, instead of crit
icizing the plans of the future campus, let’s look into them,
find out what they really are, and explain to our occasional
guests that the present is because of a future.
Just another bit of proof signifying the expansion of the
University is the new pre-teehnical course. Get a thorough
understanding of its possibilities so that you may tell your
friends. They will want to knQw the real advantages of a
three-year pre-engineering course followed by work as a spec
ialized school. It has many advantages ovgr a straight tech
One policy that the Emerald has held to all year: If any
thing is worked out secretly and under cover, it is more likely
to he suspected of being “crooked” than anything made public
and worked out with the knowledge of everyone concerned.
Try it, politicians!
If the future campus is scheduled for 1935, there may be
a tew of us who will be able to enjoy the pleasure are mere
students—if they keep raising standards every year, as they
Dean Plans Courses to Join
Home Are and Business.
Every girl, whether she majors incom
raww or uot, ought to be able to cook.
E. C. ltobbins, dean of the school of bus
iness administration thinks so. In line
vrith this belief, l>ean Robbins for some
time has been considering a course which
would combine business administration
and household arts for the benefit of
girls majoring in the commerce depart
The dean had heard the courses in
cooking, and knew by hearsay that the
girls were taught to prepare meals with
a minimum of outlay and a maximum of
results. Like the good old Missourian.
Dean Robbins had to see for himself.
So on Thursday, after assembly, Dean
Robbins, unannounced, augmented the
“mode! family” of five, which eats the

“An efficient business administration
ministrntor is trained to meet such erner
agencies,” said the dean. And they did.
Miss .Jeanette Calkius, cook for the week,
was informed that she was to have a
guest, and shortly five portions were in
creased to six. The dean wasn't hungry
Satisfied that it could be done, Dean
Robbins immediately started to make ar
rangements for combining the courses
of the two schools, in such a way that
neither conflict. Under the system ns it
is now arranged, business administration

taking about one course in the minor
department eueh year. The same ar

years of work on the campus should not
delay their courses in organic chemistry
in the hope of obtaining such work in the
medical sahool itself in Portland. During
the last two or three summers the med

POUR HOURS’ EFFORT
WINS SEATTLE TRIP
Jennie Perkins Makes Debate Team at
Last Moment; Three Others
With but four hours preparation upon
a subject she had never debated before,
Jennie Perkins, of Portland, a senior in
journalism, last evening won a place on
the varsity women’s debating team in the
tryouts held in Johnson hall.
At 3 o’clock Miss Perkins didn’t know
that there was to he n tryout. At 3:30
she heard of it and started to investi
gate. “Were they going to Washing
ton?” She discovered that they were.
“What was the question?” This she was
also told. And she immediately went to
work organizing her material, and with
time out for supper, had her talk ready
by 7:30 p. m.
Wanda Daggett, Marjorie Stout, and
Lurline Coulter are the other members
of the team which is to debate Washing
ton May 13. Miss Daggett and Miss
Perkins comprise the negative team
which will go to Seattle, the negative
team from Washington coming here to
meet the Oregon nffairmntive team in
the dual contest.
There was no competition for places
upon the varsity team, other than among
the four women who qualified. Miss
Perkins is not an inexperienced debater,
having been a member of the varsity
women’s team of the University of Wash
The coming debate will end a two year
forensic contest. Last year Oregon de
feated Washington in both encounters
of the dual debate. It is expected that
the contract will be renewed next year.
The subject for the debates is. “Re
solved: That the United States should
adopt the policy of opposition to the ex
tension of Japanese influence in China.”
