To Receive Year’s
Leave; Will Travel
Plans To Visit Canada and
Eastern States; May
Walter C. Barnes, professor of
history, will receive a year’s sab
batical leave of absence from his
faculty duties, starting at the
close of the summer session this
fall, he announced yesterday. Ac
companied by his wife and daugh
ter, he will make a trip through
Canada to western New Jersey,
where he plans to remain at least
until the end of the fall at his
mother’s farm. His subsequent
plans depend largely upon the
state of Mrs. Barnes’ health.
This summer he will spend in
Portland as a member of the Port
land summer school faculty.
It is possible, Professor Barnes
reports, that he may be able to
spend a few months in Europe
studying modern history and in
working on his unfinished book on
Carl Landerholm of Portland, a
graduate of Harvard, will teach
Professor Barnes’ course in Mod
ern Europe during his absence.
Landerholm received his master’s
degree from Oregon last year.
Bossing To Leave
Education Teacher Will
Speak at Seabeck
Nelson L. Bossing, associate
professor of education, will leave
the first part of June to attend a
Y. M. C. A. conference, and later
a Y. W. conference at Seabeck,
Washington. Dr. Bossing is chair
man of the executive committee of
the Pacific Northwest Field Coun
cil of the Y. M. C. A., and is to
speak before the conference and
conduct a discussion group on
problems of religion. He also
plans to take a group of students
through a thoroughgoing series of
tests in vocational counselling dur
ing the conferences.
As soon as the conferences are
over, about June 25, Dr. Bossing
will go to Vancouver, B. C., where
he will join the University cruise
to Hawaii. He will teach state
and territorial administration and
organization during the cruise and
at the University of Hawaii.
Do You Plan To Make Phi Bete
Then Sit in Front Row, Say Statistics
Front row seats in University
classrooms count more than high
school grades or native intelli
gence toward Phi Beta Kappa if
figures do not lie. For from a list
of pledges of Phi Beta Kappa and
Sigma Xi, and from the winter
term honor roll, 113 are listed
whose names begin with letters in
the first half of the alphabet. Only
43 qualify from the last half.
That many professors seat their
classes alphabetically, with the
l A’s first and the Z’s in the chilly
draft by the back window, is giv
en as the reason by those who
know. The front rows do get the
grades, for the B’s led with 22 fa
vored students, and the H’s are
next with 17. The first five let
ters have one-third of the Phi
Betes and honor-rollers.
And it works all the way along
the rows, for when each is weight
ed by its distance from the divid
ing line, M-N, the front row schol
ars fill their seats with 839 count
ers. The outer darkness has too
many cuts, for there are only 271
Figures are not available for
those who sit near the doors.

Regret at Resignation

From Other Institutions; Was Officer in
National Deans’ Association
A/fllS. VIRGINIA JTJDY ESTERLY, dean of women, an
nounced her resignation, to take effect nt tho end of the
school year, yesterday.
Mrs. Esterly, for seven years dean of women at the Uni
versity, plans to study for her doctor's degree, probably at the
University of California, where she received her 13.A. in 1923,
and her master of arts in 1930.
She came to the University as dean of women in 1923, and
except for the last school year, when she travelled and did re
search work in Europe, she has been on the campus.
Virginia Judy Estcrly, whoso
resignation yesterday from the
post of dean of women, which she
has held for the past seven years,
came as a distinct surprise to the
student body. She plans to study
for her doctor’s degree at the
University of California next year.
Plans Made I»y Classes in
Architect’s drawings by both be
ginning and advanced students of
architecture are now being dis
played in the student art gallery
of the school of architecture and
allied arts. The plans of Kenton
Hamaker, senior in architecture,
for the hotel to be erected by Gor
don Strong, a famous engineer, on
the summit of Sugar Loaf moun
tain in Maryland, are being ex
hibited before they are sent to
Mr. Strong the last of the season.
Problem plans by the following
students are on display: David
Bloom, Wilbur Bushnell, John
Gatlin, Edward Green, Edward
Hicks, Robert O. Keiser, Evelyn
Kjosness, Louis Lamb, Clair Mei
sel, Robert Otto, Elizabeth Pen
nock, Amy Porte r, Millard
Schmeer, and Oscar Turner.
[ Mrs. Esterly has had a very in
teresting career as an educator.
She taught in St. Mary’s. Shang
hai, China, from 1906 to 1909, and
later returned to this country. Her
thesis for her master’s degree was
on the history of the education of
women in Denmark, and in her
work for her Ph.D. which she is
planning she will extend this to a
study of the history of women’s
education in all the countries of
the Scandanavian region, with
some reference also to the modem
trends in Denmark. In her recent ,
trip to Europe she did consider
able studying in Denmark, Nor
way, Sweden, and Finland, and
will use much of the material she
gathered for her work On her doc
Mrs. Esterly Praised
The high quality of Mrs. Ester
ly’s educational work has been
recognized both on this campus
and at the University of Califor
nia. She is a member of a large
number of honor societies and fra
ternities, including Mortar Board,
Kwama, Pi Lambda Theta, and
Alpha Kappa Delta, all of which
have chapters on the Oregon cam
pus, and Prytanean. She is a
member of Alpha Omicron Pi, so
“Mrs. Esterly’s resignation was
received by the University admin
istration with deep regret,” said
Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, presi
dent. “She wishes to take advan
tage of her recent travels as an
aid to obtaining her advanced de
gree, and we felt it would be un
just to insist she stay here and
deprive her of this opportunity.
“Her work as dean of women
has attracted a great deal of fa
vorable attention from other edu
cational institutions, and particu
larly from the American Associa
tion of Deans of Women, of which
she was an officer.”
Mrs. Esterly has two daughters,
Josephine, who is a student in
medicine at the University of Cali
fornia, and Virginia, who is at
tending Eugene high school.
