Leonard, of the University of Il
linois, reported Kathryn Ulrich in
her survey of the three days which
she and Esther Hardy spent at the
University of Illinois, Champagne,
HI., attending the National Wom
en ’s League convention. In her op
ening address the dean of women
of Illinois also stressed three things
that every girl should strive for in
her life—simplicity, sincerity, and
On Wednesday afternoon of the
conference a discussion of the Big
Sister movement was led by Brig
ham Young university, and on
Thursday morning the University
of Michigan led a discussion on
self-government. The subject of the
point system was taken up by Cor
nell university, which stressed
three particular details—the spread
of activities, the individual bene
fit, and the problem of not over
burdening one individual. Cornell
requires a certain scholarship aver
age for participation in student ac
tivities, according to Kathryn Ul
rich’s report.
Particularly interesting to the
Oregon delegates was the problem
of vocational guidance which was
taken up on Thursday afternoon
by Northwestern university. This
has been met at Northwestern by a
plan whieh is designed to place be
fore the women of the university
all possible fields open to women,
and will likely be considered on
this campus, Miss Ulrich stated.
Leland Stanford led the discus
sion of social factors on Friday,
and the evenings of the convention
were taken up with round table dis
cussions, which offered a chance for
the clearing up of individual prob

the women on the campus in carry

that was new in the plans for next
year, it is hoped that some woman
from the East may be obtained to
j*ive a series of lectures.

Commencement Talks
To be Given at Schools
By Faculty Members
Commencement addresses will be
given in five high schools this week
by Oregon faculty members. Seven
ty-five Oregon and two Washington
schools have asked for speakers, and
more requests are being received
daily. Twenty-four members of the
faculty have already been sched
uled for addresses.
John F. Bovard, dean of the
school of physical education, will
speak at Prairie City high school
j Thursday, at‘John Day Friday, and
at Canyon City Saturday. “The
Fourth 1R ’ ” is the subject for his
Bruce J. Giffen, University pastor,
will talk Friday before the high
school in Tygh Valley. The title of
his talk is “You Are the Hope of
the World.”
Warrenton high school will today
hear J. Stanley Gray speak on
“Fingerboards on Life’s Turnpike.”
Last year fifty-seven speeches
were arranged. The practice of
commencement addresses being giv
en by faculty members has been
followed for a good many years,
according to Mary E. Kent, office
manager of the extension division.
Pamphlets with the names of pro
fessors who will speak, the subjects,
and the number of engagements they
can fill are sent to the high schools.
Then they write in and ask for the
speaker and subjects they wish.
Juniors attention! All juniors,
men and women, from the fol
lowing houses are scheduled to
report for work on the Junior
Prom decorations today in Mc
Arthur court: Phi Sigma Kappa,
Sigma Phi Epsilon, Pi Beta Phi,
Phi Mu, Sigma Beta Phi, Hen

away, who for a year after grad
uation, was secretary of the Ore
gon City chamber of commerce. She
resigned that position to be married.
The winner last year was Paul Ager,
then vice-president of the student
body, this year a graduate student
in the University. Mr. Ager lately
received a valuable research schol
arship at Yale for next year.
Mr. Albert, donor of the cup, is
cashier of the First National Bank
of Salem. He is much interested in
college men and women. He offers a
prize similar to the one given in the
University, at Oregon Agricultural
College and Willamette University.

are assigned to men of different
countries. No fees are charged as
it is supported by endowments from
wealthy moslems; food and lodging
are furnished free, though of very
simple kind. Men were warming up
dishes over oil lamps, and lines of
washing hung across one corner of
the court. The colonnades stretch
on and on, and eager groups of eight
or ten sit crosslegged around their
chosen leader while he expounds the
word. One such group made a strong
impression upon me because of the
rapt and beautiful faces of some
gray haired men listening to an
aged teacher. There was at least a
suggestion of the conversations of
the old Greek philosophers.
And now we are on the Nile, in
Nubia, beyond the great dam at As
souan. The passing of the dam was
of much interest. Five locks, be
sides a long introductory canal ele
vated us 98 feet to the summit,
where we looked across the mile
long structure and the vast waters
of the reservoir. Near the base of
the huge dam in front issued two
Niagaras through the giant sluice
gates. The massiveness and force
of it all are tremendous. But our
party scrambled gaily up the stone
stairways from level to level, and
at the top a party of Englishmen
raced merrily in a handcar. They
were accompanied by a dashing
sheik with flowing moustaches, flow
ing silk headdress and flowing blue
robe in which he strode haughtily
like a tragedian.
Four days we have sailed this
great reservoir above Assouan, 360
miles to Abu Simbel and back. Des
ert cliffs rise in tawny yellow be
yond the submerged fields. Half sub
merged palm trees and aeacias poke
out of the water near the banks.
On these rocky cliffs and sand banks
are rows and rows of mud brick

houses, the villages reconstructed
by the government for the farmers
whose lands have b$en submerged.
Our boat, the “Lotus,” with its
party of thirty-five, is navigated by
Nubians, whom we have all come to
like very much. The Nubian is
gentler than the Arab, and does not
have the coarse features of the
Sudanese. Faces often show delic
acy and sensitiveness as well as
amiability; that of our aged pilot is
a study in patient wisdom. The men
work to chanties. When poling us
into direction in entering the locks,
when heaving the poles that anchor
us for the night to the sandy shore,
even when scrubbing down the
decks, they sing and swing. An
agile young leader runs outside the
rail, lifting up a strain in high key;
the others follow in deep refrain.
But instead of invoking “dead men
and a bottle of rum” they call upon
Allah for help.
When they have nothing else to
do, the boatmen sometimes gather
at the bow to sing and dance to the
piping of a yellow turbaned Arab.
If the passengers throw* coins or
take their photographs they chant
together: ^
“Hip, hip, hoory, hip, hip lioory;
thank you; very good, very
nice, very sweet; thank you.”
The owner of The Lotus, Mr. Far
ajallah, a Syrian, says that these are
a happy peonle because of the qual
ity and comradeship among them,
that they have few desires outside
the circumstances of their life. One
incident partly confirms, partly mod
ifies this. Yesterday as w*e were
passing some of the mud brick vil
lages along the banks of the reser
voir, the boat was stopped and sev
eral sailors were given a half hour
in which to visit their homes. The
little town was quite emptied of its
folk, who came to the waterside
with one accord. They stood upon
the housetops looking down upon
groups of parents, wives and chil
dren along the shore, and eagerly
listening to the stories of the sailors
from their boat. When all was over,
the black robed procession of women
filed slowly up the hill, and the
sailors all too soon rowed back and
sadly re-entered the boat. One of
these, a new one in the crew, had
gone to Cairo twenty years ago to
make his fortune and had never se
cured money or a job to bring him
back to his family until now.
These men are obliged to seek
J work elsewhere in winter, because
of the submergence of their lands;
I they return usually for summer and
I autumn to till the fields then out of
| water. Dr. Powers says: " The Nu
bian peasant suffers no loss from
the annual inundation.” The ad
vantages to lower Egypt are great,
in that it equalizes the flow of
water, so that crops can be raised
the year around. Dr. Powers says
