Students Must Pass In More
Hours Per Term
A definite step toward raising ttie
scholastic standing of the Univer
sity was taken at the facultv*meet
ing, Wednesday, when the number
of hours in which a student must
pass in order to remain in school
was increased.
The new ruling, adopted on the
motion of the scholarship commit
tee, provides that freshmen must
pass in at least five hours of work,
and other students in seven hours.
The existing plan allows, the stu
dent to remain in school if he passes
in three hours. The change will not
be put into effect before the spring
Dissatisfaction was expressed
with the present system under
which freshmen often take two
hours of military work, and by
passing in this subject and in phys
ical education are allowed to stay
in school. The new ruling, it is
thought, will make it necessary for
the first year students to pass in
at least one other course if they
are to remain in the University.
The adoption of the new plan was
made with the intent of weeding
out those students who are not fit
university material. The natural
effect will also be a noticeable ad
vancement in the University’s
Elsie Heller, national student Y.
W. C. A. secretary, located in the
northwest field, is to be on the
campus this week end and possibly
the first part of next week, Mis|
Florence Magowan, secretary of the ;
local organization, announced today.
The purpose of Miss Heller’s vis
it is to make arrangements for the
coming State Cabinet Training con
ference, which will be held on the
campus either the latter part of
April or the first of May. She will !
also make arrangements regarding
the visit of Miss Grace Louks, a
national secretary who is located
in the eastern field and will tour
the West later in the spring.
Miss Heller, who is returning by
way of San Francisco from an
executive committee meeting of the
national student council which met
in New York shortly after the
Christmas holidays, hopes to reach
the campus in time to attend some
of the Fred B. Smith lectures. Dur
ing the meeting of the national
church workers who conferred upon
the campus last term, Miss Heller
was present and at that time spoke
at some of the meetings. The exact
duration of Miss Heller-’s stay will
be announced later.

Research in Particular Angle
Of International Question
Asked By Debate Coach
Students interested in forensic
work are urged by Oscar E. Brown,
debate coa'ch, to begin work on ora
tions for the Peace Oratory con
test to be hehl at Pacific univer
sity, Forest Grove on April 3. This
j contest is open to all students, both
| men and women, he states.
It is desirable in choosing and
preparing a subject, to avoid the
i conventional treatment sometimes
I given the material, he said. In the
manner of general directions, the
j orations should develop some defin
ite phase of international peace.
Sentimental' pictures, contrasting
war and peace, or moralizing ef
feeds are not preferred. Some meth
od of a practical value should be
“Research should be devoted,”
Mr. Brown said, “to some particu
lar angle of world peace, also of
fering a plan or solution for its
achievement. ”
Tryout is Tebruary 24 ,
Orations should be limited to
1,800 words in length. Aspirants
must have them memorized for the
try-outs to be held February 24.
Typewritten copies of their work
must also be presented at this time.
The Peace contest in the state
is being sponsored by the National
Intercollegiate Peace association.
For the oration taking first place
in the contest, a prize of $75 will
be awarded, and for the one plac
ing second, $50.
The winners of the contest have
the opportunity of entering the na
tional contest. The two prize-win
ning topics will be sent to the na
tional headquarters to be judged for
composition and thought value. For
the one winning the national event
an award of $100 will be given.
More Interest Wanted
“The object of this nation wid^
contest.” said Mr. Brown, “is to
promote a greater and more general
interest in the movement for inter
national peace.”
Institutions in this state intend
ing to enter the contest are: Paci
fic college. Albany college. Lin
field college, Oregon State Normal
school. Oregon Agricultural college,
Willamette universitv. Eugene Bi
ble university. Pacific university,
and University of Oregon.
Tn the contest last year, which
was held on the campus, E. D. Con

took second place.
Tonight in the Woman’s build
ing, the Oregon chapter of the In
tercollegiate Knights will celebrate
their first annual “Costume
Knight.” They have been consider
ing this particular dance for some
time and as they are offering it as
the first of their original costume
affairs to be given at about this
time each year, they are indeed
anxious that the campus respond to
the occasion by arriving tonight
with some manner of unusual dress.
“A floor full of costumes is -'ll
that is now needed to make t.h»
dance a decided success,” savs John
Boswell, committee chairman. “ Al
though we have not pla ined on go
ing into decorating +oo extensive!’',
the decorations will be anprnpri
ate for the occasion. We also hope
to interest those present \v *h some
unusual features. The Pi-id Pipers
and their music need no introduc
tion. But most of all.” stated
Boswell emphatically, “the spirit
and success of the dance depends
upon the willingness of the stu
dents to come in costume attire.”
