Education Head Experienced
in Field; Research Done
Dr. Henry D. Sheldon, dean of the
school of education, has been secured
by the department of history to give
the course in World History next year.
Commenting on the appointment of Dr.
Sheldon, the faculty bulletin says, “Dr.
Sheldon has given much study to the
general history of culture and the de
partment. feels itself fortunate to have
secured his consent to give out to stu
dents the results of his long study and
research in this special field.”
Dr. Sheldon received his A. B. de
gree in history from Stanford Univer
sity, under Dr. George E. Howard, who
was the great authority on the history
of local government in the United
States and also the author of a three
volume work on the history of the fam
ily. In the Graduate School of Clark
University Dr. Sheldon worked up the
history of philosophy under G. Stanley
Hall and wrote a thesis on the His
tory and Pedagogy of American Stu
dent Societies. In the winter of 1911
12, Dr. Sheldon worked at the Univer
sity of Leipsig with Dr. Carl Damp
reeht, the foremost representative of
culture history in Germany.
Dr. Sheldon has written a history of
American education down to 18.10,
which has not yet been published. He
is now working on a History of Civili
zation in America, and also on a his
tory of the University of Oregon.
The course in World History con
sists of two courses; the first year
course begins with prehistoric times
and ends with the yenr 1000 A. D., the
second year course is from 1000 A. D.
to the present time. The main text
book used is H. O. Well’s “Outlines of
In speaking of his plans for next
year Dr. Sheldon said, “The course will
be an account of human achievement
and will deal primarily with the (level
opment of science, art, religion and
ethical conceptions, as well as the more
fundamental economic background.
While political history will not be ig
nored it will be distinctly subordinated
to other forms. The idea will be to
make the course cover the evolution
of humanity from earliest forms of
prirnative soelety to the complex civi
lization of the present.”
The World History course this year
was given by Professor Eldon Grif
fin who, when no instructor was avail
able, stepped into the broach, last
August, prepared a syllabus, and tins
taught the subject during the year.
The faculty bulletin recently contained
an expression of appreciation for Mr.
Griffin's services, speaking of the
“ability and success” witli which he
had given the course.

Oliver Morosco will offer his latest |
comedy, “Wait Till We’re Married,” j
laden with laughter, at the Eugene
Theatre tonight. It is said to be a gay
farce of the most wholesome sort, dealing
with the amusing difficulties of two
young lovers who are about to enter into
Alan Dale, dramatic critic of the New
York American, in his review said:
“‘Wait Till We’re Married’ is a gor
geous comedy, well acted. There are
plenty of laughs, and it handed me quite
a bunch of them.” This latest Morosco
comedy was designed as a laugh pro
j ducer, and it is said to fill the bill to
j perfection and gives promise of being
I the biggest winner of any play produced
by him in some time.

heads the New York company that has
been sent to the coast. Mr. Duffy has

Only One Team Bests Varsity;
Six Teams Fall Below
The University of Oregon rifle team
lost the telegraphic shoot with Drexel
j restitute during the week ending Felmi
!nry 35, by a score of 490 out of a pos
jsible 500 points, to 497. Emerald Sloan
was Oregon's star man, shooting 100 out
!of 100 possible shots, while Edson Biggar
followed a close second with 99 shots.
Coach Knowles said in speaking of the
match: “T feel that tho boys did well
to lose by only seven points. One of
our greatest drawbacks is that the team
members must shoot with the guns which
all of the other men and girls' teams
and individual shooters on the range use.
The Drexel institute shooters all own
their individual guns. Taking into ac
count this fact, I believe that Oregon 1ms
made a good showing, especially as com
pared with Drexel institute’s other op
Out of seven eastern schools that shot
with Drexel, only one tied with Oregon
in score, all of tho others falling below
490 out of a possible 500 shots. In all
of the shoots, Drexel institute averaged
approximately 490.
The results: Drexel institute—Mur

Varsity Lowest in Northwest
Basketball Conference
Oregon closed the conference basket
ball season Saturday night by losing
to Willamette in the second game of
the week by a 27 to 18 score. The
game was the fourth between the two
institutions and made the score even,
as Oregon won both games played here
and lost both games in the second
The game was the hardest fought
one played on the Salem floor this year,
according to all reports from the capi
tal city, and was cinched by the shoot
ing of Gillette, who scored seven field
goals. The score at the end of the
first half stood 10 to 9 in favor of
Willamette, but the Missionaries took
the lead early in the last half and held
it throughout. Gillette, for the Salem
team had a good evening and chalked
up 14 of his team’s points.
The game was much closer than the
score indicates, and the team work of
the Oregon squad was as good, if not
superior to that of the Missionaries,
but their opponents seemed to have no
trouble in locating the basket. All the
Willamette baskets were made on long
shots and the Varsity guards kept them
from getting a single short score.
As a result of this defeat, Oregon is
now in the cellar of the Northwest
Conference, a position which she has
not held for a long time, and offers
a contrast to last year when the team
finished at the head of the same con
ference, with more games won than
any other school.
