Studies in Fundamental
Freshman Class Limited
To 70 Students
The complete course in medicine,
offered by the University of Oregon
Medical school, comprises seven
years work. Three of these must be
spent in the University at Eugene
or in some other accredited institu
tion in studying the fundamental
sciences contributory to medicine.
The other four years are spent in
the Portland Medical school.
Merely completing a three year’s
course in pre-medics does not, how
ever, guarantee admission to the
school at Portland. As the freshman
class must be limited to 70 entrants
each fall because of limited equip
ment and accommodations, many ap
plicants are not accepted. Thife year
two doctors from the medical de
partment visited the campus for the
purpose of interviewing prospective

About 50 per cent of the students
admitted each year are Oregon stu
dents. The others come from various
parts of the United States. Enough
persons apply yearly from California
and New York to make up the firfct
One major and two minor schol
arships are given annually to stu
dents who are exceptionally out
standing in scholarship and have
finished the • preliminary medical
courses in the University. The ten
ure of each scholarship is two years.
The awards will be given this spring
by a committee composed of Dr.
Harry B. Yocom, chairman, E. L.
Shinn, professor of chemistry, and
Harold B. Crosland, associate pro
fessor of psychology. Winners of
the scholarships will be announced
Last spring the following pensions
received the honors: Camilla Ander
son, Emil Furrer, Morton Goodman,
of Portland, and Samuel Page.
Approximately 40 applications for
entrance to the medical school will
be made by Oregon students who de
sire to enter next fall.
Age and Variety
Have 938 Persons
All persons who desire to enrich
their minds with study do not have
the opportunity of “packing” off to
college for four years of pleasure
and some study, so the correspon
dence school was developed years
ago to aid these same individuals.
Those people who take advantage
of the privilege of home study
through the correspondence courses
offered by the University of Ore
gon are largely adults. Approxim
ately one-tenth of the students en
malled in the extension division this
.'SpTiimg were from 14 to 18 years
--of age. The most popular age group
is from 21 to 31 years, if this year’s
-.statistics can be relied upon. A
trifle over half of the entire en
rollment of 938 fell into this divi
sion when ages were reckoned.
There are eight students over 50
yearn of age enrolled. Other ages;
and their total enrollment are: 31
to 40, 162 persons; 41 to 50, 68
persons; and 149 persons between 19
persons; and 149 persons between 19
;and 21 are athirst for knowledge.
jEvery county in the state, as well
as some other states, has students
enrolled. The greatest number comes
from Multnomah, with Lane, Ma
rion, Umatilla, Yamhill, Dougla/s, i
Coos, and Jackson ranking next in !
order. The metropolitan county has |
241 students and the last mentioned, '
Jackson, has 35. According to the!
latest figures, Sherman county has I
the least, four students.
The teachers of the state have a
monopoly on the home-study. There
are nearly 450 teachers taking va- j
rious subjects. Students rank next ,
in point of numbers, with 139 on
the list. Homemakers, wives, and
mothers constitute the largest di
visions outside of the teacher and
student groups. There are 87 stu
dents enrolled in correspondence
study who claim the title of home

High School Students
At Portland Center
There are two classes conducted
in the Portland center of the Ex
tension division of the University
of Oregon school of journalism, a
class in magazine writing conducted
by Alfred Powers, and a newswrit
ing class w’hich is instructed hv
George Turnbull and Kalph D. Casey.
There are usually from 25 to 50
students enrolled in the magazine
writing class, which includes some
work in the trade journalism line.
It is taught fall and winter terms,
each year. The newswriting class
is now a three term course. There
are from 12 to 30 pupils enrolled.
Many high school seniors and grad
uates take this course before com
ing to the University of Oregon to
major in journalism. It is a two
hour class and is conducted every
This year for the first time the
newswriting class has been editing
a small newspaper called the Port
land Center Star. This newspaper
is made up of storiepi which tell
what type of work is being carried
on by the Portland division and is
published once a month.

Edit Summer Paper
The Summer Session Sun, which
is edited each summer, is a weekly
paper covering the news of both
the Eugene and the Portland sum
mer sessions. Ralph D. Casey, pro
fessor in the school of journalism
on the campus, has charge of the
Eugene news. Alfred D. Powers, di
rector of the Portland Extension
Division work for the summer, has
charge of editing the Portland news.
Students in Mr. Casey’s class of
journalistic writing handle the
stories for the campus, while Pow
ers’s class in writing for the press
write the Portland news. Mr. Pow
ers sends the Portland stories here
where Mr. Casey combines them
with the campus stories and edits
the complete paper. This is printed
at the University Press and is dis
tributed on the campus and sent to
Book on Criminology
Written by Parsons
Dr. P. A. Parsons, director of the
Portland school of social work, has
written a book on criminology, for
use in the Portland center. His
work is based on practical social
problems, designed to aid in teach
! ing such work. Two years ago, Dr.
j Parsons published his “Introduction
; to Modern Social Problems.” Both
I works are the publications of Al
fred A. Knopf Co.

In Mexico, romantic land of pretty senoritas
and languorous minstrelsy, practical American
engineers have harnessed streams so that moun
tains may be leveled.
The winding thirty-mile Maltrata incline on the
road from Vera Cruz to Mexico City is now elec
trified. Ten electric locomotives replace twenty
three steam engines. The electrics haul twice the
tonnage of the steam locomotives—and in half
the time, with obvious benefits to traveler, rail
roader, and shipper.
Yet Maltrata is but an example of electrical
progress. For electricity is conquering the grades
of railroads and of industry alike, the world over.
Impressive, no doubt, but still modest when
compared with the possibilities of electricity in
years to come. And it remains for college
trained men, with trained capacity for initiative
and leadership, to become ambassadors for fur
ther electrical conquests in foreign lands.
