The University Man Outside
Gale Seaman, well-known student Y. M. C. A. worker, who
is arriving today from the south for a short period of activity
on the Oregon campus, tells the story of a traveling salesman,
whom he recently met on a train in California. The salesman
was a graduate of two well-known educational institutions, one i
of them of international reputation. i
By mistake the traveler had taken a train which was reach- |
\ug its destination at 2 p. m. rather than 10 a. in., as he had ex- l
pected. Another calamity, the diner had been “set out,” there- .
by depriving him of breakfast, except for oranges, apples, ban- ’
anas, chocolate bars and cakes, furnished by the news man.
Three hours of extra time and such a meal were intolerable !
circumstances to the ex-college man. He had evidently forgot- ■
ten the cornflakes and cold milk of undergraduate days. The (
women with children, who happened to be in his car, did not ‘
seem to mind missing breakfast, but the University man was de- i
cidedly impatient and resentful at Providence. A college mag- 1
azine with pictures and articles of unusual interest and great i
significance was given the irked one by the “Y” worker. In ;
five minutes he had abandoned the magazine and spent the rest !
of the three hateful hours reading a ten cent thriller featuring c
an illuminating article entitled, “The Kiss Aflame.”
If lliis represents the real man, the real college graduate, be
hind the good clothes he wore, how would you guess the t
thoughts of the “average American” fellow traveler who ob- ‘
served our friend’s demeanor under such “terrifying condi- s
tions” of life—a slow train and only apples, oranges, chocolate t
and fig bars for breakfast?
Some will say he was spoiled by his rich parents who failed 1
to give discipline and training in some basic human virtues. .
Perhaps the answer here is—get him a new set of parents, such '
as Mr. Rockefeller, Jr., has, who will bring him up in sensible ■
fashion with frugal, industrious habits and a disciplined mind
and body needs for any emergency.
Others will say that the luxuries and extravagance of ourj
time and his generous travel expense account have made him j
selfish and hard. As answer here, we suggest the farm or the
navy at about $1 per day, or a summer like Whiting Williams
spent in the steel mills of Pennsylvania.
Still others will answer that his unhappy condition is be
cause of the machine-like and impersonal nature of his college
training. That’s easy; blame it on the college. Why not?
Granting that this chap has missed something somewhere along
the line, let his college leaders stand straight up and take such
blame as belongs to them. Tolerating a social system and an
unbalanced college perspective which produces too many “stom
ach level” men and too few of marked intellectual ability, is
of course wrong. Fortunately, college loaders are in the front
line of those who work to reduce the kind of men this salesman
represents and multiply the number of Robert Speers, Norman
Colemans, Dave Porters, Arthur Hughs and Paul Blanshards.
Again, Chancellor David Starr Jordan’s words seem appropriate:'
“Of worth-while things that come near to me, three stand out as
all-important—clean living, sound education and fair play be
tween men and between nations.”
FROM TRIP TO SALEM
I)r. Edmund S. Conkliu, head of
the University psychology depart
ment, retumod yesterday from a
trip of a day and a half to Salem.'
While at the capital, Or. Conklin
was the guest of the Rotary club
and spoke at one of their regular
meetings. He also addressed the
students of the Salem high school.

ARE UP TO STUDENTS

hat men would often enter con
ests when they were out of con
lition, and poorly trained. This
iften did more harm than good,
e said, and ho advocated that the

nd refrain from any sports they j
cero not suited for.
Sports Develop Men
Bill Reinhart, baseball and bas
:etball coach, is staunchly for the
ntramural program, but he would
drnit some limitations. Many an
ithlote has been developed in in
erfraternity competition, he points
ut, and without an incentive to
day with his peers, a man who
night later bo a good varsity
layer would never be known.
The other members of the de
artmonts express similar senti
lonts. The question of develop
ug “sportsmanship,” “cooperative
eeling” and “development of the
ndividual” have all been tlior
ughly discussed in previous ar
ieles, hence it is unnecessary to
aelude opinions on this subject.
So just what the fate of intra
lural athletics will be remains in
lie hands of the students. At pres

raternity council is working on a
ubstitute plan, and until this is |

Maryl Deming, graduate assistant in
the chemistry department, both re
ceived severe X-ray burns from the
X-ray in the physics department Sat
urday, when they were taking pic
tures of their hands. The burns are
said to have been caused from over
exposure in the machine.
Deming was burned on both hands,
i while Neuman received the burn on
l only one hand. The X-ray appar

Instead of using the hard or pen
etrating rays as they should have
done, the two boys used only the very
soft rays. This meant that they had
to expose their hands extraordinarily

Neuman said that he didn’t sleep
a wink Saturday night on account
of the burns. He has been troubled
ever since with a kind of itch in the
hand. Deming has been worried over
Both boys have been taken to local
doctors, but there is nothing they
can do for the burns, except to apply
zinc oxide to soothe the burning sen
The X-ray burn is very similar to
a sunburn, except that the burn from
tho former may penetrate clear
through the body. X-rays are short
