cultural values out of college as
well as the social is expressed in
a letter from Paul T. Shaw, newly-j
elected president of the Oregon

for the sincerity of purpose, the
genuineness of character, the man

eternal, the spiritual, the funda

and living and acting from the
impulse of tradition alone,” he
