Head Tells Of Summer Trip
jThree Students Make Tour
In Interests of
V t University
•‘We were particularly impressed
by the high degree of enthusiasm
and courtesy displayed by students
and faculty alike in the schools
we visited,’’ said Joe Freck, chair
man of Ihe Greater Oregon com-'
mittee, on returning to Eugene
from an 18-day tour of the state j
with George Cherry, president of
the Associated Students, and Rob
ert T. Miller, assistant general I
“The high schools at which we
spoke were North Bend, Coquille,
Medford, Redmond, Bend, Ontario,
Enterprise, Wallowa, La Grande,
Pendleton, Hood River, Rainier,
Seaside, Tillamook, Newberg, and
Lincoln High school in Portland.
“Banquets were held in Rose
burg, Klamath Falls, Burns, and
Seaside. At these banquets we
met new students, old students,
mothers, dads, and alumni. The
two luncheons were attended by
the representatives of the same
groups and were held at Bend and
At Medford a meeting with
about 25 prospective students was
held at the home of Dorothy Eads,
Greater Oregon chairman for that
city, and at Pendleton, a meeting
of mothers, dads, and alumni was
held at the public library.
“The trip itself was a trying
one,” Freck remarked, “and our
speedometer registered exactly
2,499 miles at the front door of
the Administration building on the
18tli, and our daily average was
about 140 miles. During one pe
riod of 36 hours we drove 475 miles
and gave six talks en route, so the
average drive of 140 miles per day
is hardly indicative of the true
ardors of the trip.
“We followed about two weeks
in the wake of Doc Spears and
Tom Stoddard, and we found a
fine spirit of enthusiasm for Ore
gon football games and heart!

who seems to have won over the
people of Oregon as his ardent
"Alumni and mothers and dads
showed great interest in the prog
ress of the University during the
past year, and the only depressing
thing we found was that many of
our old students are unable to re
turn to school this fall.
"The content of our talks was
entirely serious in nature, and we
found that most of the high school
principals welcomed our ideas
open-mindedly,” Freck continued.
"My talk was on higher educa
tion in general and I presented
what I believe to be the student
viewpoint on that subject; Cherry
spoke on the departments and
schools at Oregon, on the distinc- |
tion attained by our professional
school, and on the value of a lib
eral arts education; Miller spoke
on the application and value of,
extra-curricular work as an ad
junct to the classroom work.
In closing the interview, Freck
complimented the activities of
Some of his subordinates. "The
work of Miller.” he remarked, "in
directing the Eastern Oregon sec
tion, was productive and effective.
"The athletics division, under
Robert E. Miller, was an experi
ment. tit is year, but iL proved that
it has merit, and with some
changes that can lie effected next
year it will develop into a valuable
part of the Greater Oregon com
"And I must say that all of us
were highly gratified to return to
Oregon and find that the entering
freshman class is one of the
largest ever to enroll here.”
Freck named over his province
chairmen who had done excep
tional work, as follow: John Long,
Koseburg; Vinton Hunt, Wood
burn; John King, Milton-Freewa
ter; Maryellyn Bradford, Klamath
Falls; Kelsey Slocom, Hood River;
and Dorothy Eads, Medford.

The Fox McDonald theatre is
having as its guests Wednesday
evening "Doc” Spears and the vic

honor of their victory over Drake.
One of the highlights of the oc
casion will be the showing of the
first of a series of football pic
tures of Knute Rockne's team and
the famous play" of many other
important coaches. This reel
shows in particular Rockne’s “hid

many teams. The important plays
are done with slow motion, which
enables one to see exactly how
they are executed, and to under-1
stand them fully. The climax ;
comes with a thrilling run of fifty j
