EDITORS OF STATE TO
MEET HERE IN MARCH
Dedication of New Journalism
Building to Be Feature
More than 100 newspaper men of
Oregon are expected to be guests of the
University when the Oregon Newspaper
conference holds its fifth annual meet
ing under the auspices of the school of
journalism, on the 22, 23 and 24 of next
month. In connection with the meeting
of the conference a special state meet
ing of the members of the Associated
Press will be held. This meeting wau
requested by Paul Cowles, superintend
ent of the western division of the
Associated Press, who will attend, as
will Edward F. Nelson, Portland cor
respondent of the association.
The delegates will number represent
atives from every branch of newspaper
work, including country newspapermen,
city newspapermen, trade journalists,
and special writers. The Oregon wri
ters league will put on a special part
of the program. The convention meet
ing will be presided over by L. G.
Drake, manager of the Astoria Budget,
who is president of the conference.
A feature of the convention will be
the dedication of the new building
which is to house the school of jour
nalism, and in which the conference
will be held. A new copy-desk will
be presented by the association to the
University at this time.
The Oregon Exchanges which will ap
pear within a few days', will carry a
tentative program for the convention.
A banquet will be given for the visit
ing editors by the Eugene Chamber of
Commerce, at the Osburn hotel, Friday
the 23rd and a luncheon will be served
at Hendricks hall on Saturday, the last
day- of the meeting.
POWERS PRAISES RADIO
(Continued from page one.)
with a radio. The radio lecture, also
says a lot in little time. The lectures
given in Portland were 20 minutes
long, but they said as much as could be
said in an hour’s time, because the
radio speaker reads his lectures.”
The instantaneous distribution possi
ble by radio is a great advantage, which
it has over the newspaper, according to
Mr. Powers. The newspaper is neces
sarily slow because it must depend on
trains or other means of transportation
to reach the people throughout the
state. When a speaker of note has
spoken in a certain place the radio
would of course be the ideal way in
which to deliver his message to the
people at large, as it is so much faster
than other means of delivery.
The lectures which the extension div
ision have given in Portland have in
cluded subjects of general interest to
the people in the state, and have been
given with an historical background
which, according to Mr. Powers,
“brings to the people the idea that an
cient history is applicable today.”
Mr. Powers considers the radio more
important as a means for distributing
lectures to people throughout the state
than for distributing music. One of
the advantages of using the radio for
lectures is that it reaches isolated peo
ple, but these same isolated people are
able to get the best in music on a
phonograph, by a mechanical device
which is really better than the radio,
lacking the heavy mechanical “over-:
tone” that 'the latter has.
The future of the radio as an educa-'
tional medium depends, he believes,;
largely on whether interest in it will i
outlast its novelty.

He showed a series of slides on the
j carbonizing of the wood in various east
ern industries. One example of this
was the Eastman Kodak company in
Tennessee. A particularly interesting
picture was that which showed the
parts of the tree and lumber used in
this process which are usually con
sidered as waste material. On this
slide were pointed out the small limbs
1 of the tree, the needles of the ever
green trees, pulp, the red and rotten
wood, as well as the slab wood and
trimmings about the lumber mills.
President Campbell in a short intro
ductory talk spoke of Mr. Stafford’s
discovery and the advantages of it
for the industries of the state, as w°ll
as for the nation as a whole. The
utilization of the waste wood as
brought about by Mr. Stafford’s work
will mean a big advance for the iron
industry of Oregon, he said. In the
mine beds along the Columbia use of
the ore has been handicapped by the
lack of coaking coal which is essential.
Thus by the utilization of of the char
coal made in Mr. Stafford’s process
through the carbonizing of waste wood,
the iron industry will get a great ad
