H. G. Wells is represented with

The secrecy of Oregon’s attack is
one of McEwan's chief hopes of
defeating the Huskies. The only
information handed out by the Web

Dr. McGovern, following his dis
covery, was compelled to surrender
himself to the Tibetan authorities,
yet it was the very man lie feared
most, the Delai Lama or supreme
Buddhist Pontiff, who finally was
instrumental in providing his escape
from the bloodthirsty Tibetans.
The Tibetans observe some queer
customs, of which Dr. McGovern
will tell. The women are the lead
ers of the country and can have as
many husbands as they like, these
husbands being devoted slaves.
The ceremony for the deceased is
simply to take the dead body to the
outskirts of the town, cut it all up
and feed it to the dogs and birds.
Tibetans never wash from the day
they are born until the day they die.
The country is filled with huge
monasteries but the monks have
very individual ecclesiastical no

terday Ragen had been one of the
ruling favorites to go into the final
rounds. The scores of the hectic
sessions were 4-6. 8-6, and 6-4.
Entering the match as the weaker
man, Kalisky dropped the first set
but then settled down to work and
finally got the edge on Ragen for
the second set. In the final canto

By his victory yesterday Hoogs

all athletics arc sponsored by clubs,
to which the students may belong
by the payment, of a small sum each
month. In fact there is practically
none of what you call ‘campus life.’
The universities are located in the
centers of the great cities, and have
no campuses such as nearly all Eng
lish and American universities have.
“But the American influence is
tending to change these conditions.
Just now a sum is being raised- in
Spain by popular subscription to
move the University of Madrid to
the suburbs of the city, where a
campus may be developed.”
When asked just, what medium
carried what he called “American
influence” into Spain, he laughed
and said, “It is your movies. Near
ly all movies shown in Spain arc
American, and the Spaniards are as
familiar with Greta Garbo, John
Gilbert, and Douglas Fairbanks as
the Americans are.”

“I believe I will like this Oregon
country,” he said. “The climate is

Spain, where I come from. You see
there it rains very much.”
