    Adult Education
Move Organized
4 At Conference
Definite Plans Made for
Teaching Illiterates
Says Dean Rebec
The education of people out of
and beyond school years is reached
through adult education, explains
Dr. George Rebec, who has just re
turned from a conference held at
San Francisco, February 8 and 9,
for the purpose of organizing an as
sociation for adult education.
The world movement for adult
education extended definitely into
America when the Carnegie corpor
ation displayed interest in having it
here, and called a number of con
ferences, the San Francisco session
being one.
According to Dr. Rebec, the back
ground of the Carnegie corporation
is to explain the adult education
idea and situation as < unfolding
themselves throughout the world in
several parts of America, and after
that, to undertake the question of
f definite organization, both for the
country as a whole and for differ
ent sections.
Dr. Rebec report* the conference
was very interesting. Albert Mans
bridge of London, founder of the
Worker’s Educational Association,
was the guest of the conference
and the regional chairman was,
Henry Suzzalo, president of the
University of Washington. Mel
ville A. Brannon, chancellor of the
University of Montana, Rufus Von
Kleinsmid, president of the Univer
sity of Southern California, L. S.
Klinek, president'of the University
of British Columbia, A. C. Crane,
president of the University of Wyo
ming, and C. H. Marvin, president
of the University of Arizona were
among the representatives of the
The movement for adult educa
tion in China began during the war
when an officer in charge of a bri
gade of laborers found them suf
fering from loneliness and home
sickness. “They could write no
letters home, and could not read
the ones sent to them. When the
officer thought of teaching them
how to read, he was confronted with
the difficulty of the Chinese script,
said Dean Rebec. “To be able to
learn this require* a large amount
of time. Finally the officer had
the happy idea of working out a
simple form of'Chinese writing con
sisting of 1200 signs. Nearly all
the men acquired this and the prob
lem of home communication was
solved. The process has been adopt
ed by tens of millions of people in
China.” Education for adults in
America is being reached through
libraries, correspondemee course*
and by various ways, says Dr. Re
Dr. Rebec states that the idea of
educating adults has been taken up
in Europe by Denmark and other
Scandinavian countries, Germany,
Great Britain and Czecho Slovakia.

ANALOGIES I. Many perfect
scores were made on this test. Mr.
Taylor says it is too easy for col
lege students, but it is difficult to
make one that is more in keeping
with the otheils.
“FISH is to SWIM and MAN is
to (Paper, Time, Girl, Walks).”
The correct answer would bo
‘ ‘ walks. ’ ’
It looks easy, but Mr. Taylor says
that it is surprising how many mis
takes are made.
There are 50 possible points, the
average being 27.5. Men averaged
25.6, and women 29.7.
ANALOGIES II. As the first
analogies test was in words, this
one is in forms.
“—is to—as—is to—, or—or x,
or—, or O.” The correct form i/s
In this there were 25 possible
chances to score. The average was
12.1, with men making 11.8 and
women 12.3 points.
student in this test has to work out
the formula as shown in the exam
ple given. For instance, “9-18-3-6-7
—.” The right number would be
“14,” since “9” was doubled to
make “18,” “3” doubled to make
“6,” and twice “7” equals “14.”
One student made the 25 possible
points in this test, but 86 make
zero, bringing the average down to
9.4. Men made 10.1, and women
ABSURDITIES. This is another
test that is too easy for college stu
dents. Forty-six made perfect
scores, while the average was 16.8
Men scored 15.8, and women 17.8,
on an average. Only two of thope
tested scored zero.
In the directions, the student is
told that the sentences given below
are absurd, but can be made reason
able by the change of a single word.
In “I have three brothers, Paul, Er
nest, and myself,” the word “my
self” would be underlined by the
student to show that it is the word
that renders the sentence absurd.
OPPOSITES. Although a hard
test, this is very good for determin
ing vocabulary, accuracy of voca
bulary, and knowledge. For ex
ample four words are given: (1)
warm, (2) heavy, (3) long, (4)
short. The student is told that two
of these words are either the same
or opposite. In this case, numbers
(3) and (4), or “long” and “short,”
are the opposite, and are set down
a|s such.
Out of 27 possible points, the
highest score made was 24 points.
The average for those tested was
7, with men averaging 6.5, and
women 7.5.
“In classifying students on the
basis of the test score,” sayfl Mr.
Taylor, it seemed best to make the
classification as similar as possible
to the grading system of the Uni
versity. Therefore, the freshmen
were graded as follows: 1, five per
cent; II, 20 per cent; III, 25 per
cent; IV, 25 per cent; V, 20 per
cent; VI, 5 per cent.
“College women cluster around
the same ‘above average’ • score,”
he continued, “while men vary from
a few exceedingly brilliant, to a few
very unintelligent. In this way,
women usually have higher average
scores, but men, on the whole, make
the higher individual scores of the

is up to the business man to let the

Basketball Pavilion
Funds Now Available
Reports Ted Larsen
The sum of $105,000 necessary
for building the new basketball
pavilion, can be secured from fin
ancial houses in Seattle, Portland
or Eugene, according to a state
ment by Ted Lateen, chairman of
the A. S. IT. O. building committee,
last night.
After conferring with various
banks, the committee hast found
that money for financing the new
building may bo borrowed through a
system of bond issues. Although no
transaction has been made, the com
mittee expects to have a definite re
port on both the Jjuilding and fin
ancing of the pavilion ready early
next week.
Present construction plans have
been turned over to Ellis F. Law
rence, dean of the school of archi
tecture, for revision. A final ca
pacity of at least 9000 peats is ex
pected. Lean Lawrence will pro
vide as large a number as finances
will allow.
Of the $105,000 to be raised $45,
000 must be ready for payment on
the completion of the building,
about October 1, according to Lar
sen. The money will probably be
borrowed through bond series of
five to ten years. All firms that
have considered financing the pa
vilion have offered the money at an
exceptionally low rate of interest
and on other favorable terms, Lar
sen reported.
Injuries to Mat Men
Weaken Prospects
Gloom, caused by two injured
men out of five, settled down on
the wrefetling team after the re
turn from the trip north, and unless
more men can be put in their places
or recovery is more rapid than an
ticipated, the meet with O. A. C.
scheduled for this next Saturday in
Eugene will probably be cancelled.
The team’s showing on the nor
thern trip which met both Idaho
and Washington State college was
disappointing. Idaho won 50 to
12; W. S. C. won 52 to 12.
It was due to the experienced
squads that they met at both col
leges and the inexperience of tho
Oregon men making the trip, all of
whom were entering their second
and third intercollegiate matches.
Most of the men are from the
freshman squad of last year and

The Bend team comes here with

freshmen would be a big feather in
their cap.
