Dr. Graham Taylor Praises
Real Joy of Service
To Whole World
Americanization Work Termed
Particularly Important
At This Time.
A plea for the worker, the unfortunate
and the down-trodden which pointed out
the obligations the cultured owe to the
lower strata of society, and assurance of
the joy to the giver which this service
brings, was made by Doctor Graham
Taylor, of Chicago, leader among Ameri
can sociologists, who talked to the stu
dent body Thursday morning. During
this talk he gave advice gleaned from
a 2ti year study of the problems of the
Chicago slums.
Living, working and learning for years
in the very heart of the congested slum
district of Chicago—the seventeenth
ward—Doctor Taylor has carried on a
work of Americanization and service to
the poor that can be compared to the
great and uplifting efforts of Jane Ad
ams at Hull House, to whom the Doctor
paid a glowing tribute.
“Don’t Be Self-Centered.”
“Do not allow yourself to become self
centered,” the speaker told his student
audience. “Think of the needs and the
sorrows of others, you owe society for
the education you are receiving here and
when you leave this institution you
should endeavor to return in a measure
some of the benefits you have received.”
“Service to your fellow-man will bring
a joy to your life, will broaden and ex
pand your sphere of influence and en
large your capacity. It will give a di
rection to your purpose in life and leave
you a fuller and more commanding out
look and a richer American and Christian
character.” he declared.
Advising his hearers to go forth and
serve the community, the Doctor warned
them of the uselessness and pity of the
impractical social worker who knows
nothing of the problems of the people
and yet attempts to alleviate their suf
Touching upon the problems of the
radical propagandist and the reactionary
conservative, the speaker declared that
the latter is the more dangerous of the
two. “VVe can easily take care of the
former,” he declared, “ho is harmless,
hut the reactionary and his subtle work 1
must, be curbed. America is becoming
too timed concerning these enemies with
in her gates and we must discourage the
advancement to places of power of such

of Trophy.
i The final debates in the Oregon high
school debate contests will be held May
~0, Friday of Junior Week-end. at 2
o clock. The finals will he triangular, in
g that they will be between the three neg

hall and the assembly room of the Uni

cup. If this should happen, another cup
| would have to be bought. Professor K.
Jv Dot ou first offered the silver cup for

“Plans for Junior Week-end are pro
gressing rapidly,” said Ogden Johnson,
general chairman of the celebration, in
a report at a meeting of the junior class

A discussion was held on the bronze

Zippy Novelties Abound
on Junior Stunt Program j
1'nusual sounds emanated from the
music building last uiglit. according to
passers-by. Wierd screams of a jazz
clarinet mixed with the nasal groan of
a slide trombone, diluted with a violin
and banjo, and well shaken by a piano
and drums before being taken by the aud
itor seemed to constitute, in the final
analysis, the cause of the uproar.
It was not the result of a tonal argu
ment in a class in musical depreciation,
however, but was Carl Newbury’s or
chestra getting in trim for the Junior
'audeville, explains Arthur Johnson, in
charge of the affair. This orchestra
