Of Oregon Rocks
Past Year Sees Strides in
The year 1926 resulted in several
important geologic achievements
concerning the state of Oregon.
Much of the work was effected
through the efforts of Dr. E. L.
Packard and Dr. Edwin T. Hodge,
txfth of the University department
Though none of them are of such
a degree of importance that any
great change in the structural, cli
matic, or living conditions will be
in any way altered, the discoveries
have meant a lot to the field of
Dr. E. L. Packard, professor in
the department of geology, has dis
covered large areas of paleozoics
in north central Oregon, and also
numerous occurrences of cretaceous
rocks. These discoveries have an
important bearing upon the geologic
history of the state.
Dr. J. P. Buwalda of the Cali
fornia Institute of Technology has
almost completed his mapping of the
Twickenham quadrangle of the
John Day valley. The mapping of
this quadrangle is important since
it represents the (most important
geologic column in the state.
Dr. Edwin T. Hodge, professor
in the department of geology, after
nearly fifteen years of continuous
investigation, gave before the Ge
ological Society of America, at a
meeting in Madison, Wis., Dec. 29,
the first interpretation of the com
position and structure of the Cas
cade mountains in central Oregon.
This ties the structure of the Cas
cade mountains to that of the John
Day and Willamette valleys. The
unravelling of this complex series
of nocks will have an important
economic bearing on the state.
Petroleum existed at one time in
Oregon and may exist now, accord
ing to an analysis made by Dr.
Hodge of some material which
proved to be a variety of asphalt.
Details of his investigations will

America is no longer dependent up
on Europe. Many of the best Euro
pean teachers have flocked to
America’s financial haven, but they
are finding their equals in the na
tive born teachers.
“Americans seem to be better
fitted temperamentally to the rout
ine of teaching while the Europeans
are better adapted to performing.
It remains to be seen whether Amer
ica will produce more performers
in the future.’’

Point to Popularity
Of Discussion Groups
That the informal discussion of
subjects of general interest in the
fraternities under the direction of
members of the University faculty
fulfills a real need of the student,
is the general concensus of opinion
of both professors and students.
Classroom restraint which keeps
the men from asking questions, 'and
fully clearing up doubtful questions
is totally lacking around the fire
place in the evening, it is found, and
an atmosphere of social ease that
promotes earnest thought prevails.
“I felt that it was one of the
best things that the Y. M. C. A.
has done,” said Warren D. Smith,
head of the department of geology.
“We sometimes talked until late in
the evening, and the restraint which
so hinders classroom discussion was
Not only is enthusiasm evidenced
by the faculty, but the students
themselves when questioned say that
they enjoy the talks and derive ben
efit from them. The teachers have
been enabled to meet and talk to
men whom they otherwise would
never have known.
“It ought to stimulate thinking on
topics of interest to the students,
and it surely is an enjoyable way
in which to meet the men and pre
sent material which is likewise pre
sented in the classroom,” said Dr.
E. L. Packard.
“The questions forthcoming are
very intelligent and worthwhile in
all cases, I find,” said Del Ober
teuffer, assistant professor in phys
ical education. “Personally, I en
joy the discussions very much, al
though I lose a lot of sleep.”
“Students are becoming more and
more interested in questions that
have a social and national relation
ship,” said Mr. H. W. Davis, direct
or of Christian work, “and these
groups fill a need in promoting that

Excitement of Crowd 'Keys Up9 Team,
Says Dr. Howard Taylor, Psychologist
Fear May Produce Same Results; Adrenal Glands
Release Stores of Energy in Liver
The members of an athletic team
may not hear individual yells given
for them during the game but the
cheering and the excitement of the
crowds key up their emotions and
often stir the players on to faster
and more violent action, in the
I opinion of Howard B. Taylor, as
sistant professor of psychology.
“Excitement necessarily has an
effect in keying up any organism,”
said Professor Taylor, “and this in
creases the possibilities of violent
reaction. Cheering therefore has an
effect on competing athletes in that
it contributes a large part in stir
ring up excitement. Physiologically,
keying up the emotions causes the
adrenal glands to release stores of
energy in the liver, and thus a new
sohree of energy is provided.
“The problem of an athletic, coach
to raise high emotions in his
players,” continued the speaker.
“Fear may be used to do, this, al
though it is not always good as pre
paratory to good playing.”
Instilling fear in his players is
essentially what is done by Gil j
Hobie, former coach at the Uni- 1
versify of Washington and now at
Cornell, said Professor Taylor. !
Pobie makes gloomy predictions un
til he scares his players into play
ing beyond their normal gait.
This emotional keying up of the
team could be accomplished to some
extent by the cheering alone if it
were not that teams which have
played much get used to hearing
yells. Cheering heightens the gen
eral emotional status of the crowd,
however, and that tension in turn
is usually communicated to the play
“Producing violent reaction by
arousing the emotions may impair
judgment,” Professor Taylor said.
“Keying up the emotions is most

effective on actions that have be
come practically automatic, as run
ning or passing in basketball. It
may even extend to thinking and
it is possible that a debater is
stirred by the excitement of the
crowd. Occasionally a man goes to
pieces under the strain but that is
usually because he does not have
his actions sufficiently automatic
or under control.
“This knowledge of the effect of
excitement on reaction goes back
to an essay by William James, who
was a noted psychologist and profes
sor of philosophy at Harvard, on
reservoirs of power. James said that
under stress people may have res
ervoirs of power on which to draw.
They are then able to do acts that
they never could do without the
stress of emotion.
“Heightening the activity for long
periods deletes playing power and
eventually athletes cannot play un
less the reserve is built up. That is
the reason why teams go stale dur
ing long playing seasons.”
Spectators at a game are affected
by excitement in much the same
way as the players and the same
physiological changes take place,
said Professor Taylor. Their emo
tions are heightened by the cheer
ing and by the contagious excite- j
ment of the crowd.
“Seeing a team, which they know, '
play is more interesting to the spec
tators because to a certain extent
they identify themselves with that
team and win or lose with them,”
Professor Taylor concluded. “The
emotions of the spectators are
aroused much more than if they
were merely watching professional
teams or teams in which they had j
no interest or connection. For that
reason professional teams try tio j
establish a particular clientele or
