Increase in Number of College Men
In Legislature in Past Decade Shown
One of the topics of the day that
hobs up constantly is tlie question
► of the qualifications of our state’s
solons to make our laws.
The query arises as to whether
they are any better qualified by ex
perience or by education than were
their predecessors of the sessions of
five, ten or twenty years ago.
The answer seems to be that the
present legislature is better pre
pared, in the imrtter of educational
qualifications,' than any previous
one. In legislative experience, that
is, in the average number of years
actually devoted to lawmaking by
the members of the legislature now
in session in Salem, the present
group of legislators appear to be as
well qualified as any other in the
history of the state. These facts
are revealed in information con
tained in the "Who’s Who edition of
Ik the Oregon Voter for 1929.
. During the past ten years the
number of representatives with col
lege educations has increased 12
per cent. Of the total number of (50
representatives 44 of them are grad
uates of colleges. This means that
73 per cent of the representatives
are college graduates.
- While information regarding the
educational acquirements of legisla
tures earlier than ten years ago is
not available, it is known that the
present number of college men in
the house is much greater than was
found 30 or 40 years ago.
In the senate there has been n6
material increase in the number of
college trained men during the past
decade. Of the 30 senators, 20 of
them, or (57 per cent, are graduates
: of colleges or universities. This is
the same as the number with college
training in the 1919 senate. Due to

Teaching Jobs
For Next Year
To Be Filled Soon
Many Positions Offered
Qualified Students by
Appointment Bureau
The busy son son for the place
ment of teachers will begin soon,
reaching its height in March and
'April, according to Professor P. L.
Stetson, director of the appointment
“All university students who ex
pect to be rpialified and available
for teaching, positions next fail
Should register in the appointment
bureau within the next month in
order that their credentials may be
prepared, properly,” said Mr. Stet
son yesterday afternoon.
The appointment bureau is now
located in commodious new quarters
in room 1 of the Education build
ing and is well equipped to take
care of the many calls for teachers
and administrators that come from
Oregon and surrounding states, ac
cording to Mr. Stetson.
Last year the bureau assisted in
the placement of nearly 300 teach
ers, including 147 of the 11)28 senior
class and gra-duatc school.
“The registration fee is one dol
lar. I do not, know of any similar
investment which insures anything
near the same amount of personal
attention and service. This charge
is especially low when compared
with the five per cent of the first
year’s salary which is charged for
placement by commercial agencies,”
continued Mr. Stetson.
A meeting of all prospective can
didates for teaching positions is
called for Tuesday, January 22, at
4 o’clock in the Education building
when the work of the bureau and
the process of registration and ap
plication will he explained.
Flood Problem Studied
By Environment Class
Situation Between Eugene,
Springfield Surveyed
The 9:00 o’clock “Man anc( ITis
Environment” class, taught by Dr.
Warren ]). Smith, has been assigned
a survey of the flood situation exist
ing between Eugene and Springfield.
Tliis problem, which presents a real
menace, has been discussed in the
local papers for some time.
“Although many of the students
do not consider it so, this is in
reality a geological problem,” stated
Dr. Smith. “Its importance may be
illustrated by the fact that the
Union Pacific, the Southern Pacific,
and tlie U. S. reclamation bureau
have experts at work attempting to
solve it. It shows that, we do not
have to go afield for our research,
but that we have problems to be
solved at our very door—problems
which are vitally connected with
the daily life of the community.”
Dr. Smith said that while he did
not expect a final solution to this
assignment, he did expect it to give
the students experience, and to get
them interested in the problems
which confront the community.
Freshmen in R.O.T.C.

A short first aid course lias been
■given to the freshmen taking mili
tary training by the K. O. T. C. de

The work was aimed to give the
students a general knowledge of
what to do in ease of accident or
other eases in which victims need
immediate attention. Snake bites,
| insect stings, broken bones, wounds,
fainting, shock, burns, poisoning, and
i others have been taken up and steps
for relief have been named. The
. men were also told how to care for
the feet while hiking or marching,
and how simple precautions may be
taken to ward oft' disease.

'Desert Street’ Flower
Found by L. E. Delting
A pale yellow flower with exquis
ite narrow leaves and an odor as of
dried rose petals only pungent am\
spicy—something from Arabia, has
been found in the Paulinas moun
tains of Oregon by Leroy Ellsworth
Detling, instructor in romance lan
This flower is known as “Desert
Sweet,” because it grows only in
extremely arid lands. It has never
before been found in Oregon, but
was discovered in the Modoc lava
beds of California.
Mr. Detling’s hobby is plant biol
ogy, and all last summer he spent
camping by himself, with only the
company of foresters, studying the
flora of the Paulinas mountains.
These mountains have been studied
before, but Mr. Detlitig brought in
the most complete collection of flow
ers and the only seasonal one there

Washington, on the basis of its
championship last year and its ex
ceptional pre-season record of this
year, is favored to win from Oregon
tonight. Tho Wobfpot team has
been developing slowly, hampered
practically all season by numerous
injuries. Streaks of brilliance in

doubtedly will get the first call.

Thus sang the 8. A. E. quartet,

by Roma and Martha Gross on the
violin and piano, and Jack Dennis
played the saxophone.
The style show lust night outdid
the last one by its magnificence—
and the mannequins were dressed
for the eye of man. An attempt was
wado to improve tho show. Tlio
lights, instead of living deepened,
were brighter and too harsh for most
of the models, although, through reg

of the show than at the beginning.
The picture of the fashion revue
was peacock in its pride, splendor,
