Radio is Newest Fad
*** +++
In Arvhitevturv Annex
AVhat next is Joe College going
to bring to school? Already he
brings his flashy sports roadster,
his bicycle or his pvt dogs. But
the netvest thing on the campus is a
radio-. The reporter happened to
pass by the architecture annex in
the sociology building the other
night from Whence he heard music,
someone singing—and then a ter
rible squawk. Peering through the
window lie saw a radio on one of
the tables with a smocked figure
turning the dial, making a futile
attempt to down that sguaWkihg
and produce some soothing melody,
which might bring an inspiration
to the rest of the aHists who were
working on their drawing boards.
Graduate School
Offers Growing
List of Courses
Mofe Advanced Work in
Summer Thau During
Regular Session
“The offerings in the graduate
Sellout tire constantly widening be
cause the number of graduates is
increasing,” said Dr. George Rebec,
dean, regarding the work of the
advanced students in the summer
Session. “There are a larger number
here during tlie summer session than
in the regular school ye^r.”
Graduate instruction, according
to Dr. ltebee, is a matter of ‘‘stick
ing by the man, not in brilliant
lecturing to him.” Consequently,
the highly individual Work makes
more important a small group atul
consistent sWuly. So the grade
ate school does not feature, nor does
it ever feature, prominent figures
in its teaching staff.
Students are encouraged to study
on the Eugene campus rather than
in Portland, although^ in some in
stances candidates are forced to te
main in the north, and courses are
offered them in Portland, too.
Summer courses in most depart
ments are arranged in two or
three year sequences, enabling the
student to meet the requirements
for the master’s degree by attend
ing consecutive sessions. Confer
ences with the individual student,
superior instrUcton, and the re
seatch facilities combine to attract
the graduate student to the Eugene
Sonic courses Open to graduate
students include school finance,
research ill secondary education,
problems in the history of West
ern education, thesis writing, and
seminars in German and French.
Some of the advanced courses in the
Portland session may, by special ar
rangement, be used for graduate
