rpiIE OFFER to the federal government of a free 10-acre
site on the University of Oregon school of medicine cam
pus for a United States veterans’ hospital is an offer (of
significance. In authorizing the move at their meeting yester
day the University hoard of regents must have had certain
definite things in mind. The tract is part of the 88 acres given
to the University by the widow and son of 0. S. Jackson of
That increasingly greater scientific benefits could be reaped
the state if congress should decide to locate the Veterans Bu
reau hospital on this site will be apparent. It would mean fur
ther concentration of medical interests. It would mean that
other institutions of a kindred nature might spring up with
such a ’precedent for stimulus. It would afford another of
the much desired contacts with other states.
In a comparatively isolated position geographically as both
science and art go, the state can hope for a great deal in such
undertakings, which are, of course, made possible by such
donors as the Jacksons, and Dr. Noble Wiley Jones. For in
the bequeathing of property, which benefits institutions, and
the establishing of scholarships, which increase individual ef
fectiveness, the state will materially profit both by a more
efficient group of authorities on health and hygienic matters,
and by a more informed citizenship.
The tremendous lack of specific scientific knowledge, par
ticularly in the natural sciences, has proved an impetus for
more extensive and comprehensive research throughout the
each, and the west should not be left behiind. Work such as
that of Loeh and others in the biological field is an inspiration.
What is lacking are the actual facilities and capital for such
With the growth of hospitals and special opportunities for
research, men of broader knowledge and greater skill are more
and more employed in tho ordinary course of events. And the
advantage of this is not alone in adding one specialist, but in
providing contact between specialists.
And beyond the state’s larger knowledge in this field, with
its research into the causes and methods of preventing diseases
and providing remedies for them, lies greater health for its
citizens, and consequently greater prosperity and happiness.
By a policy of conservation the state can be spared the expense,
too, of caring for wasted man-power.
Golf Claims Attention in
Collegiate Sports
Thirty Team Aspirants Out;
Several Expert Players
When the sun comes out from be
hind the clouds with some air of
permanence, then the sweater and
golf club will take precedence over
tho slicker. According to Coach
George Bronough, some thirty men
are out for the team. Tho out
atanding players are Jack Marshall,
runner-up in the Oregon state coast
championship tournament at Gear
hart; Lloyd Byerly, player in the
championship flight of the last
three state championship tourna
ments, putting out John Uebstock,
the medalist, in the last one; Bill
McBride, who won the first flight
of the fall tournament of the Eu
gene country club and Tom Ma

In the last few years intercol
legiate golf has taken rapid strides
to claim its rightful place among
athletics. At Oregon however, it
acems to lag a little. This season
should see a change in attitude to
ward the game since Oregon has
two men on a par with any other
golfers representing coast colleges.
Washington, Stanford, California
and Southern California all recog
nize golf as a first class minor
sport and award K tors for it, while
West Virginia considers it a major
Last year Oregon was not able to
participate in the annual intercol
legiate golf tournament due to lack
of funds, but this year if the pro
per interest is shown this difficulty
will doubtless be overcome.
Coach Bronough plans to have an
elimination tournament in April at
the Eugene country club with the
four final winners qualifying foi
the team. These men will then be
able to enter the annual intercol
legiate golf tournament in Seattle
next May.

Although these nro democratic
days in this great democratic land,
one cannot get on unless ono is a
member of a profession. If one fol
lows a trade, or even if one en
gages in business, ono just does not
That is one reason why newspa
permen are at so great pains to de
clare to all that they follow a pro
fession. That is why the engineer
classes himself with the medico, the
cleric, the lawyer. That is why
peddlers of vacant lots term them
selves realtors. That is why sellers
of “ H. V. 11.’s” and kitchen cab
inets are mercators. And that is
why barbers are now chirotonsors,
and plan a campaign “to elevate
the craft to a profession.” One
changes a name, and thus is a pro
fession born. ,
Hut there is one more thing neces
sary before the trade becomes a full
fledged profession. The group must
have a written code of ethics. A
; code of ethics to a trade is like a
college diploma to a young man. It
i immediately gives some distinction
! and some prestige.
With a code of ethics, whether
followed or not, one group feels it
self superior to others. In the words
of the secretary of the Associated
Master Barbers of North America,
“Without a code of ethics we can
have no higher position than tailors
or bootleggers.”

, mark does great credit to the spirit

Modest little Trinity college, Dur-1
ham, North Carolina, may become
the cultural center of the South and
be to that section what Harvard
and Yale are to the East, if it will
consent to take on the name of its
benefactor, James B. Duke, tobacco
king and owner of a large electric
power corporation in the south. If
Trinity college does not desire to
become Duke university, Mr. Duke
has set aside $6,000,000 to immedi
ately purchase a grant of land and
initiate construction upon a brand
new Duke university.—(New Stu
dent News Service).
When John or Mary wish to go

colleges, that can be accomplished
by changing the wave length. Radio
schools have already been estab
lished, according to reports emanat
ing from Germany, and the states
of Georgia and Kansas.—(New Stu

To the Editor: More might be
said, it seems to me, of Fritz
Leiber’s interpretation of Hamlet.
To call Mr. Leiber’s work in this
“casual,” as Mr. Larsen did in yes
terday’s Emerald is to miss some
what the point of that, remarkable
performance. A better word, I
think, might be “human,” or “na
tural,” for the interpretation was,
indeed, exquisitely human. His
use of words was less grandoise
than Hampden’s perhaps, and cer
tainly less so than that of Kellard,
the English actor. Yet the fact
that his interpretation differs from
those of other men who have ap
peared in the part should be rather
commended than criticized, since it
implies both originality and sin
cerity. Certainly it is not less ar
This same quality of naturalness
on the stage is as rare, I believe, as
it is to be admired. It is that qual
ity in a person like Duse which is
so subtle as to evade analysis.
Hather more noticeable than what
Mr. Larsen considers the liberties
taken with the meter of iambic
pentameter were the liberties taken
with the text, as when, instead of
saying, “Alas, poor Yorick, I knew
him well,” Leiber simply says,
“Alas, poor Yorick,—I knew him,
Horatio,” and again whn he cuts
lines in the closet scene with the
queen which robs the murder of
Polonius of some of its pointed ef
No mention at all was made ot
the disconcerting brunette and not
at all fragile Ophelia, who re
deemed herself in the mad scene in
spite of these physical handicaps.
The stage settings, though shal
low, were extremely beautiful from^
an artistic point of view, and in
tone with the beauty of the play
itself. The simplicity of effect
which made possible the rapid
succession of scenes, with no wait
of over three minutes, immensely
augmented the realistic presenta
tion of the drama. It conjured up
an appropriate atmosphere. The
first scene was, however, very lit
tle marred by the smallness of the
space between Hamlet and the
ghost. An actual flaw was the fact
that the ghost cleared a very un
