Much has been the comment of
critics in recent years of the use
lessness of a college education as
far as earning money is con
cerned. They say that the four
years of college activity only de
lay the time, placing the student
four years behind in getting start
ed in the business world; the be
lief being that very little practi
cal knowledge is gained from a
university education, and that the
high school student, who has for
feited a cultural background, is
the better off when it comes to
counting dollars and cents.
But figures recently released by
the school of business administra
tion would tend to disprove the
< above, as far as graduates of the
Oregon school are concerned, j
When students, just graduated I
from college, can step into jobs I
paying anywhere from $1,500 to
$5,000, it would seem that some
credit must go to the training af
forded them by the schc >1 of busi
Although records are incom
plete, several positions held by
Oregon graduates of only a few
years previous, are paying $10,000,
and others hold important man
agerial jobs with nationally im
portant firms.
The company employing the
largest number of Oregon school
of business graduates is the Jant
zen Knitting mills of Portland.
Phil Berg is one of the designers
for their knitted wear and is con
sidered by the company, says
Dean Faville of the school of busi
ness administration, as one of
their valued employes. Two girls,
Velma H. Scholl, '26, and Mar
garet B. Swan, ’27, are working
in the export department and re
ceiving very excellent salaries con
sidering the short time that they
have been with the firm. Others
with the Jantzen company are:
Carl Vreeland, Thomas McGinnis,
' and Howard Kelly.
As district manager of the Arm
strong Cork company, Don Dwight
Davis, graduate of 1921, is receiv
ing one of the largest salaries of
which the business school has rec
ord. M. J. Warnock, as branch
manager, Steele Winterer, and
Ken Stephenson are also with this
Montgomery Ward and com
pany employ four former Oregon
students. O. M. Callaway is as
sistant Pacific coast merchandise
manager, R. D. Huntress and J. C.
Landrud as house auditors, and
George Ross, Jr., are also with the
Portland house.
William Balckaby is with the
Western States Grocery company
< as manager; Gibson Wright and
Fred Niemi hold positions as sen
ior and junior accountants respec
tively with Peat, Marwick, Mitch

Dewitt Dormer is district manager i

company; M. A. Boyer is office
manager of the Pendleton Woolen
mills; and W. B. Yergen is audi

Women graduates of the school
of business administration are
often placed in important po'si
tions. Roma Whisnant is secre
tary of the Washington Co-oper
i ative association of Seattle ,and
Jean Mitchell holds a job as ac
countant for the Western Dairy
Products company, also of Seattle.
Three graduates of the 1929
class already hold good positions.
Ralph Geyer is with Bedell's, Port
land; William Dielschneider is with
the sales department of the Iron
Fireman coiporation, also in Port
land, and John Scrinener is an ac
countant in the state department,

Herbert Pate will give an ex

role includes the dramatic incan

Pauline Guthrie as “Martha
Schwertlein” is a guest singer.
She is a post graduate student
here and sang the role with the
class two years ago. Rose Simons
will sing the famous “Flower
Song" which opens the scene.
The humorous elements in the
scene, provided by Mephistopheles
and Martha, contrast with the ro
mance of Margarita and Faust in
the celebrated Faust story.
An anticipated “high spot” of
the scene will be the four-part

Douglas Fir Passes Test
Timbers 50 Years Old Tested
Lumber Chiefs Write Thanks for Data
Strength tests on Douglas fir
timbers taken from the old Hay
den bridge near Eugene are of
great value to the lumber indus
try of the Northwest, and the
University of Oregon is to be
warmly Commended for sponsoring
the research work, If is declared
in letters to Dr. Arnold Bennett
Hall, president of the University,
from J. D. Teamont, president of
the West Coast Lumbermen’s as
sociation, and W. B. Greeley, sec
The tests on the Hayden bridge
timbers were made in the Uni
versity laboratory by E. H. Mc
Alister, professor of mechanics.
They revealed that the timbers 50
years old were actually stronger
than new or even short-seasoned
fir, and proved definitely that the
wood actually improves with use
if sufficiently protected from the
“We have all too little technical i
data on the properties of timbers I
long after cutting, particularly:
timbers of such long service as
those of the Hayden bridge,” Mr.
Teamont’s letter stated. “The
lumber industry is under obliga
tion to the University of Oregon
for these tests.”
“Wood technology has few tests
on used timbers — particularly on
timbers in use for so long a pe
riod,” wrote Mr. Greeley, "so the
tests are of particular importance
and value to the lumber industry.
I desire to express our apprecia
tion of the interest shown by the
University in making these tests,
and to compliment you on the
care and thoroughness with which
the tests were made.”
Similar tests are expected to be ;
made on timbers taken from the '
old Coburg bridge, and these will
be watched with interest, say both
lumber experts.

The student relief fund for Bul

announcement made by Helen Pe

Miss Wingate is a member of
Kwama, sophomore honorary for
women, and has served on a num

“We want to make the waffle
dance one of the big events of the

‘‘1 believe that it might be a
wide move for the next confer
ence to include the manager of
athletics in the larger schools,”
said Day Foster, chairman of the
10th annual high school confer
ence which was held on this cam
pus January 10 and 11, in a re
port submitted to administration
In his report Foster pointed out
that many high school problems
are handled through or caused by
athletic managers, and that the
conference would be a good means
of avoiding friction. He named

| Russell Baker, senior manager, as
concurring in the idea.
Foster also suggested that the
date for the conference be changed
in the future, since the bad weath
er at the customary time prevents
many high schools from travelling.
Also, he said, several do not send
delegates because of mid-year
examinations and graduation.
The Y. W. discussion group
which Dr. Nelson L. Bossing, as
sociate professor of education, will
conduct has been postponed until
next Wednesday at 5 o'clock in

yesterday by Eldress Judd, presi
dent of Y. W.
Dr. Bossing's group will discuss
different problems of religion,
among them the questions "What
can we believe in God?” "Can we
pray?" and the "Nature of God."
“This is a most interesting and
stimulating discussion group, with
unusual sympathy and under
standing toward the student out
look," said Miss Judd, in speaking
of the subject.
All those who would like to par
ticipate in the talk are asked to
