Reports Extension Head
September Record Month;
288 Term Hours’ Credit
Earned in 102 Courses
A forty per cent increase in the
number of correspondence courses
completed up to October is report
ed by Dan E. Clark, head of the
extension division. Statistics re
leased from the division show an
increase of 20 per cent over last
year in the number of enrollments,
and more than 30 per cent increase
in the number of lesson papers cor
Over 500 Courses Completed
There have been 503 correspond
ence courses completed up to date
this year, while but 362 were fin
ished within the same time last
year. Course registrations number
1,249 so far, as compared with
1,040 for the first nine months of
last year. This year 11,145 lesson
papers have been corrected, while
8,525 were corrected up to October
first of last year. '
The number of courses completed
is- considered much more important
than the number of enrollments,”
said Mr. Clark. “Only about one
third of the courses enrolled in are
ever completed. To have finished
a correspondence course -shows
much more perseverance than is re
quired to complete a course in reg
ular session. We have found, how
ever, that students who receive high
grades in correspondence courses
do so in their regular studies also.”
The grades as a rule are slightly
higher than those for regular ses
sion. Dr. Clark believes the reason
for this to be that students en
rolled in correspondence study
have definite reasons for complet
ing the course, and therefore apply
themselves more diligently. An
other reason he gives is that people
failing correspondence courHos sel
dom complete their work, and so
no grade is turned in for them.
The grades for September are a
little higher than for other months.
They are ns follows^ I, 10 per
cent; II, 25 per cent; III, 40 per
cent; IV, 20 per cent; V, 'five per
“September waB tho Diggost
month we have ever had in the
extension division,” said l)r. Clark.
“One hundred and twenty students
enrolled in 136 courses. There wore
10 2 (courses completed; those
courses totaled 288 term liburs ’
credit. That is equivalent to about
li) students, each doing one term’s
work in tho University.”
Dr. Clark remarked on tho do- j
oid'ed increase in correspondence
study this year, lie has not re-!
eeived dofinite information about
the Portland extension division,
but declares that there is every in
dication of the same unusual in
crease in class courses. Since tho j
University does not advertise its j
extension work in any way except I
by regular bulletins, Dr. Clark, can j
see no definite reason for the in
crease. He believes that students r
enrolled in courses toll their !
friends, -and in that way spread the]

IN FAST NET PLAY
Second Round Of Tennis
Despite several shiowers during
the day, the second round of the fall
tennis tournament was cpmpleted
yesterday with a number of good
matches being played. Several
matches were played in the morn
ing and the rest were played in
the afternoon. The most import
ant mptch of the afternoon was
that between Bill Adams and Irv
ing Westerman which 'went to
Adams, 6-1, 6-4. Adams, letterman
from last year’s team displayed
conservative tennis through both
sets of his match. Westerman on
the other hand played flashy ten
nis at times but not enough to
complete with Adam’s consistent
play. Westerman is not in as good
condition as he might be and has
not had enough practice to really
make hint a consistent player.
Another match which drew much
comment was that of Cohen and
Gamboa which was won by Cohen,
6-2, 6-4. This match was well play
ed as both racquet wielders dis
play a very fast pace of tennis.
Gambon, who defeated "Peterson in
the morning’s play, has not had
quite enough experience to really
compete for u berth. According
to Coach SEdward Abercrombie,
Gamboa with a little ntpre experi
ence will bo able to give any of
the local netmen a good run for
their position on the varsity.
The Coffin-Veazie match, which
was to have been played yesterday,
has been scheduled for three o’clock
today. The winner of this match
will meet Bill Adams in a match
at four o’clock ^n court five. In j
the Coffin-Veazie match, Coffin is
considered the likely winner.
The results of yesterday’s

are as follows: T. Peterson to P.

CLASS COMPETITION IN
“Everybody out for swimming,”
is the plea of Miss E. Troomol, f
conch for women’s swimming. Miss
Troemol lias met with difficulty in !
arousing enthusiasm for swimming '
in the institutions where she has j
previously coached. This is her first
year at Oregon. Here, swimming
is one of the most popular sports,
and the competition is keen. Har
ing the practice periods the pool
has been crowded to capacity. At
meets, spectators have filled the
balcony of the room to watch the
races, diving contests, and swim
This year, the girls will not be
urged by the house to go out for j
swimming. All competition will!
depend upon class spirit, lentil the
new plan has been actually put in-1
to operation, and there has been i
competition between the classes,
there can bo little class spirit. But
most of the swimmers of last year
must be on the campus. She urges
them to support their classes by
signing up in the women’s building
as early as possible for voluntary |
competition. Practices for juuiors I
and seniors will be held at five |
o’clock on Wednesday of this week,
for freshmen and sophomores on :

of the week at the same hour the

While on the subject of tourists,
Miss Cornier said that the situa
eause of its tremendous success this
was particularly deplorable. Any
one who really expects to. know
France must live there for years
and not expect to become acquaint
ed in a little sight-seeing trip
through its main streets with a
casual inspection of the Louvre.
