Dr. Speare Lectures To
Oregon Students On
British University
Brawls in Colleges Held
To Be Serious Affairs
Verbal controversies with church
brotherhoods over voting rights may
seem exciting to students of a mod
ern American university, but they
would not have even been interest
ing to students of mediaval Oxford,
according to a .lecture given by Dr. -
Al. Edmund Speare, American repro- |
sentative of the Oxford Press, to a
large crowd of students and faculty
in Villard hall last evening.
“Up to 25 years ago brawls be
tween Oxford students and citizens
of the town were chronic affairs,”
said Dr. Speare. “Upon one occa
sion in the 14th century, the stu
dents of one of the colleges were
beseiged in their building for an
entire week by a crowd of angry [
townspeople, and before peace was
declared, no less than -10 of the stu
dents had been killed.”
Oxford History Related
The lecture and the two reels of
motion pictures which accompanied ,
it presented, a clear picture of Ox- ;
ford history and activity, particu
larly of the world famous Oxford
Press, which has printed over 10,
000 books since 1408, when its first
volume, a commentary on the apos
tles’ creed, came off the press.
“It is significant,” said Dr.
Spearc, “that the first English
newspaper was printed at Oxford,
lu 1005 a plague was raging in
London, and in order to escape it,
King Charles II and his court moved
to Oxford.
“In order to make news of royal
appointments and events of national 1
politics known in London and
throughout the country, the king
caused to be printed an ‘Oxford
Gazette,’ the first issue of which
appeared on November 15 of that
year, and which lias been in exist
ence ever since, now being published
as the London Gazette.”
More than tradition is used to
enforce a no smoking rule on the
Oxford campuses, according to a
scene in the motion pictures. A
student smoking a cigarette outside
one of the buildings is shown in an
unfortunate meeting with one of
the proctors, or “campus cops.” llis
name is taken, and disciplinary ac
tion in the near future is indicated
by the expressions on the faces of
the student and the proctor both.

serve a Thanksgiving only in
church services, but the peasants
have a merry holiday with feast
ing, dancing, and songs, says Bessie
Schoenberg who left Germany three
years ago to study here. Girls don
their brightest dresses, boys have
streaming ribbons on their capjs,
and all pile into the large harvest
wagons which carry them to a
dance, the climax of Kirmes.
Church Services Observed.
Jan van der Yate, graduate as
sistant in history, has known the
more dignified celebrations of Hol
land. The first or second Wednes
day in November has been a day
of Thanksgiving even before the
Pilgrims lived there. Church ser
vices are held in the morning, din
ner follows, and sometimes there
are services again in the afternoon.
China, according to Leonard Joe,
junior in economics, celebrates the
first of each January with fifteen
days of festivity. The first week;
is devoted to all living things; there 1
is a chicken day, a dog, hog, sheep,
ox, horse, and one for mankind.
Thanks are. given for God, for peace,;
and for the future.
The remaining eight days are de
voted to thanksgiving for corn,
wheat, and rice. These ceremonies'
can be traced back over 2000 years.1
Today, however, they are being dis
regarded in the coast cities of China.

an expedition under Frobisher. It
was accompanied by rules banish
ing swearing, dice, and card play
ing. Another American ceremony
: is recorded in Maine during the
I August of 1607.
However, thanksgiving to us of
the United States will always call
| to mind the little group at Ply

turkies” which contributed to their
first harvest feast.
Stereopticon Slides
Of Extension Service
Travel Far and Wide
Distance presents no’ barrier to
the use of University of Oregon
stereopticon slides, according to
Mrs. Helen Kilpatrick, secretary of
the visual instruction service of the
extension division. Last year a set
of slides went as far as Bosaria, in
Argentine, South America.
In addition to this, showings were
held in Illinois, Washington, Idaho,
and in more than one hundred com
munities in Oregon.
Schools, colleges and universities
used them as aids in instruction.
Churches, communities, scout groups
and various clubs used them for both
entertainment and instruction. A
sanitarium made use of the sots to
help cheer the patients confined
there. Lodges and other similar
groups used them to secure attend
Besides serving a wide variety of
uses and locations, the service offers
many different subjects from which
to choose. The files contain sets on
nursery rhymes and animal life,
geography and literature, hygiene
and history, in fact on almost any
desired subject and in any conceiv
able combination.
Recently, in order to cut expense
in shipping and danger of breakage,
the film slide lias begun to replace
the old glass variety. These arc
composed of a series of pictures on
a film, similar to a movie reel, dif
fering only in that a still picture is
According to Mrs. Kilpatrick, the
university service has, at present,
148 glass slide sets and 114 film sots.

Today’s' Question: What would
you rather read in the Emerald,
local or national news?
Gordon Miller, senior in business
administration: “1 would rather
read local news because in the
other papers we can get the na
tional events. 1 think the Emerald
should carry the local topics be
cause they are of more interest to
the students and the Emerald is the
students’ paper.”
Mae Tobin, senior in music: ]
“Local—very much so—1 like to
read about the news on the campus
rather than national topics."*
Pete Slauson, junior in architee- 1
ture: “I’d rather read local news
—it’s of more interest to me—some
of the more important news would
be all right, but the local events arc
of far more interest to the stu
Harriej; McCloud, junior in jour
nalism: “I’m sure that I would
rather read local news in the Emer- j

in the daily papers. National news :

necessary space.”
Stanley Almquist, sophomore in !

preference to local news because
