Increase in Number of College Men In Legislature in Past Decade Shown By JOE RICE | 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.

Senator Xorhlad J pointed out that Michigan and some other states grant similar privilege * to graduates of their state univer j sity law schools, even when exam I illations aro required of graduates of famous institutions outside tlio state. Dean Charles H. Carpenter of the law school, when asked last night to make a statement on tlio proposed hill of Senator Norblad, stated that he had nothing to say on the subject at present, hut expected to issue one next week. Should such a law he passed through the state legislature, it would mean the saving of countless (Continued nil Page Vonr) i February Eight Is New Date Set For B.A.S.A. Hop Rutherford Promises Wax For Floor, Good Musie, Punch, Low Admission Confliction in the dating of dances for January Hd, lias made it neces sary that the business administration student body association dance be moved ahead to Friday, February 8, it was announced today' by William Rutherford, general chairman of the affair. Flans for the dance include all things, stated the chairman, that go to make a good dance better. Jimmy Purcell’s Percolators will furnish the clatter—piping hot— syncopation—enough to lighten the heaviest of the light fantastic toes. “Admission,” continued Mr. Ruth erford, “is only six bits a couple. You can see we don’t intend to have any student committees investigat ing our dance for profiteering, poorly waxed floor, lack of light, nor abun dance of dirt. Seventy-five cents a couple, good punch and every thing.” The dance will take place in the Woman’s building Friday, February 8. The general chairman states pos itively that the floor will be fixed if lie has to get down on his hands and knees to do it. Members of the business adminis tration student body association and their friends are privileged to at tend this dance. “But,” added Mr. Rutherford, “we consider that every one on the campus is a friend.” Tickets are new and a novelty. They are in the form of a balance sheet with the copy entered as debit and credit items. Decorations are being planned, and Mr. Rutherford hopes to have a surprise for the campus in the way of something new. Representatives for the selling of tickets to the dance are as follows: Grace Griggs, Roma Whisnant, Har vey Robertson, Ronald MeCreight, Ralph Geyer, Delbert Richmond, and Margaret Barratt.

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 bureau. “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.

There were dresses that sparkled with them—dresses that shone with them —and a dress that ran silver with satin. There were small foot shod with gold and many with silver slippers. Had you elosed your eyes, you would have dreamed you were in heaven, listening to a perfect sere nade: “ I ’ll marry you tomorrow And I’ll die if you say no.” Thus sang the 8. A.

Tlio lights, instead of living deepened, were brighter and too harsh for most of the models, although, through reg ulation, they were better at the end of the show than at the beginning. The picture of the fashion revue was peacock in its pride, splendor, and futuristic scenery. The exhibi tion of fashions repeated for the public was sponsored by the Women’s league for the benefit of the fund for tho new infirmary. Elsie Goddard was general chair man, and wis assisted by Martha Stevens, Mao Tobin, Carl Heilborn, Floyd Hunk, and Dorothy Kirk.
