Oregon Geologist Returns From Year’s Exploring Tour
Expedition of Geologisl
Professor Gathers Much
Data on Trip
By STICKLING GREEN
After a year’s leave of absence
spent studying geologic forma
tions in Kenya, Uganda, Sudan,
Tanganyika, and other parts of the
interior of Africa, Dr. Edwin T.
Hodge, professor of geology, re
turned to Eugene yesterday after
noon, and immediately went to
work at his office.
Dr. Hodge reported many inter
esting and little-known facts con
cerning the particular geologic
fields which he studied. “I found
the so-called Great Riff valley to
be almost ludicrously overesti
mated in the popular imagination.
I have dangled my feet over the
edges of fault-scarps in the state
of Oregon that are much more
Several discoveries of excep
tional interest to students of geol
ogy were reported by Dr. Hodge,
but these, he says, are not yet to
be released for publication.
Dr. Hodge expressed himself as
being delighted with the results of
his investigations. “The expedi
tion was a success from every
standpoint,” he stated. “I expect
to be writing for months on the
data I have gathered. All this
will be published eventually, but
at the present time I cannot tell
in what form the material will
Met By Wife
After spending four months in
central Africa, Dr. Hodge met his
wife in Luxor, Egypt, and together
they made a tour of Egypt, Pal
estine, Syria, Turkey, Greece, Italy
and France which lasted six
weeks. Mrs. Hodge, who is a
sculptress of some note, has re
mained in Paris, where she will
be working at her studio until
For the greater part of the ex
pedition, Dr. Hodge traveled alone,
although he was accompanied dur
ing' a part of his African explora
tions by Dr. Herman Heinke, a
German geologist, who was doing
experimental work for the German
Dr. Hodge arrived in New York
on January 13, and came directly
across country to Eugene, where
he intends to take up his profes
sorial duties immediately. He left
the University in June, 1929.

O. S. C. Co-op. Saves Money
House Managers’ Store Is Successful
Editor's Note: Oregon house managers are considering a co
operative buying association which would save thousands of dol
lars to member fraternities and sororities. This summary, written
by Forrest M. Pickett, of the Oregon State Barometer staff,
explains the system in operation at O. S. C.
Bv FORREST M. PICKETT
OREGON STATE COLLEGE, CORVALLIS, Jan. 24.— (Special) — i
More than $25,000 a year has been saved the Oregon State students •
by the Co-operative Managers’ association for the last three years by !
centralizing and controlling the purchases of the fraternities and sor- ]
orities. This is the only successful association of its kind in the world, 1
it is believed, with the exceptions of the co-operative groups starting I
cl u oiaiuviu auu atiuuivovw uii
versities, which are patterned aft
er the local association.
The co-operative association,
which has been in operation here
10 years, is operated by a full
time manager who is responsible
to a board of six student direc
tors elected from the fraternities
and sororities. Each member pur
chases $50 worth of stock and
contracts to do all of its buying
through the co-op. As well as
handling all of the groceries and
furniture buying, the association
arranges wood, wood-sawing, the
plumbing, cook employment, and
various other services.
"At present the operating cost
of the association is less than 8
per cent of gross sales, which is
,9 per cent less than the average
cost-to-sell of retail grocery stores
in Oregon,” pointed out Newel H.
Cornish, professor in economics
and sociology, who is technical
adviser of the association and one
of the founders.
Among the factors attributing
to the association's success is that
no advertising expenses are nec
essary: delivery costs are low, due
to systematic plan of delivery;
buying power; long term contracts
with the members; and efficient
managers. The fraternities and
sororities are now under a 12-year
contract with the Co-op to buy
“The success of the Co-op, like
any other organization, depends
upon the loyalty of its members
and building up of a financial
background with a propef board
of directors to see that the work
is'carried out,” explained E. E.
Seibert, Co-op manager. “The Co
operative Managers’ association is
a separate corporation and is en
tirely independent of the college.
The students feel that they have
the right to purchase collectively

pOK some reason or other,
students who have met with
accidents from falling; on the
ice have failed to report to the I
infirmary to la- patched lip.
Within the last week, there
are no records showing- treat

The nurses thought that j

resulted in great injuries or
else the skidding victims were
ashamed of such* happenings.
STALL MANY CARS
An indication of the extreme
slipperiness of the Eugene streets
was given last, night to crowds of
persons who were en route to see
the Oregon-Washington basketball
A line of several cars was
stalled on the slight University
street grade in front of Gerlinger
hall, and the autos were unable'
to get traction on the icy pave

helped out the situation by giving j
the stalled cars boosts. Not only1
was this particular hill noteworthy
for its slipperiness, but all around.

The sprain was considered se

in most cases the injured member
is only bandaged. What with the
