\ Big Registration
witless Students Retreat
To College Cover
The economic solution of why
the enrollment at the University
is larger this year in spite of the
fact that it is a period of depres
sion is given by Victor P. Morris,
professor of economics.
“A period of depression works
two ways," he said. “First, it tends
to keep some students away from
school because they lack the neces
sary funds. Second, it tends to
draw others because they have the
money to go on but are unable to
get a good job. In other words
there are not as many jobs to com
pete with going to school.”
According to Mr. Morris, the
eastern schools have had a large
increase in enrollment, too, and
economists are of the belief that in
a period of depression people rec
ognize the need of specialization
and accordingly flock to the
schools of higher education.
Two Will Run for

Carol Hurlburt and Marie

Carol Hurlburt and Marie Mey

“Oregon? That’s Out Near
Cal.,” Says Columbia Stude
"Oregon—that’s out west some
where—near California, isn’t it?”
Spoken by a “darn good looking
girl" at a Columbia university
dance, this statement impressed
Gifford "Buck” Nash as indica
tive either of the failure of the
geography professors of the east
or of the reluctance of Oregonians
to advertise their native wares.
However, it was only a minor
incident on a trip that started
June 20th when Jim Raley, Jack
Hempstead, and “Buck” Nash sped
out of town in a light roadster for
points east with the ultimate in
tention of arriving at Columbia in
time for Hempstead and Raley to
take in the summer session there.
Their itinerary included Yellow
stone park, Chicago, Indianapolis,
Cleveland, Niagara Falls, New
y York, Washington, and St. Louis.
"In Chicago,” according to Nash,
"the first thing, a policeman mo
tioned us to the curb and warned
us about leaving our car alone.
He said that if we did when we
returned there might be no car
left. Aside from this slight indi
cation we saw nothing of the re
The beauty of Michigan avenue
impressed them but in New York—
"The size of the foreign element
in New York’s population impress
ed me greatly,” Nash continued.
“In the subways sometimes as
many as 20 foreign newspapers
might be seen—Magyars rubbed
elbows with Patagonians—I don’t
know, for sure,” he broke off with
a laugh, “whether they were from
there or not but they very easily
could have beeen.
Another interesting thing is the

In order to bring courses in mu

Dean John F. Landsbury, the dean
A student registration which ex

Landsbury. A larger percentage of

Dr. Hall To Speak
Two Frosh Assemblies on
Sked for Month
Two assemblies designed espe
cially for freshmen, at which Dr.
Arnold Bennett Hall, president of
the University, will speak, have
been scheduled for October 14
It has become a custom for Dr.
Hall to give a series of lectures
for the freshman class only since
he came here four years ago.
These lectures are designed for
the guidance and benefit of the
freshmen, and have proved among
the most popular addresses which
the president delivers throughout
the year. Last year Dr. Hall gave
two such addresses at the invita
tion of the freshman class.
The first of the assemblies
comes next Tuesday at 9 o’clock
in- the music auditorium. John
Stark Evans, assistant dean of the
school of music, is to play the pipe
organ. There will be no other pro
gram. All 9 o’clock freshman
classes will be dismissed.
Dr. Townsend Will Talk
At Crossroads Meeting
Dr. H. G. Townsend, of the phi
losophy department, is the princi
pal speaker scheduled for the first
meeting of the Cross-roads club
to be held tomorrow evening at 8
o’clock in Alumni hall.
“Freedom In or Out” will be
discussed by Dr. Townsend in the
20-minute lecture period. At each
meeting the members hear papers
by various University professors.
After each talk a general discus

Hope for Tennis Victories
Rises With Entrance of
Sidney B. Wood
National Rating Gives Star
Sixth Place in Singles
In United States
By VINCENT OATES
Oregon's otherwise shady hopes
for tennis supremacy on the Pa
cific coast suddenly shot sky-high
yesterday, when Stanley Almquist,
redoubtable Webfoot tennis star,
arrived on the campus with Sidney
B. Wood, Jr., recent conqueror of
Ellsworth Vines in the Seabright
tournament, and now recognized
as a seeded and possible Davis
Cup player among the youthful
court prodigies of the country.
Wood, slender, flaxen-haired and
still to see his nineteenth birthday,
enrolled in the University of Ore
gon yesterday afternoon. S. Ste
phenson Smith, coach of the Ore
gon racqueteers, was enthusiastic
over Wood’s appearance on the
campus, and said that the addition
of such a star to the Oregon team
would mean a probable champion
ship in doubles and certainly added
laurels in singles.
Summary of Wood’s Records
A long summary of Wood's rec
ords, victories and court triumphs
by Allison Danzig, New York
Times sports editor, gives a few
highlights on the young sensa
tion's colorful career. According
to that sports authority, if Wood
never does another thing on the
tennis courts, his fame is secure
as the player who crushed Vines
in the Seabright field of star
racquet wielders. His stunning
defeat of the all-conquering won
der from the sunny courts of Cali
fornia, is an accomplishment in it
self that will be remembered for
some time to come. Vines, gan
gling six-footer from Pasadena,
came out of the western courts
with a style of play that remained
unsolved until his precipitous fall
at the hands of Wood. Vines had
astounded the tennis world with a
meteoric rise in two weeks that
set followers of the sport to take
new life in the future of Amer
ica's lost supremacy on the courts.
He had marched triumphantly
through the metropolitan cham
pionship and Seabright’s best, tak
ing the measure of such stars as
Frank Shields and Frank Hunter,
when his last obstacle, and not too
formidable one at that, remained
in the path of a clean sweep. That
obstacle was none other than the
person of Sidney B. Wood, Jr. To
even think of defeating the un
beatable Californian seemed al
most presumptuous. It was an
accepted fact that the devastating
fire of Vines’ bullet service and the
piercing strokes of his volleys
could not be stopped.
Faced Handicap In Match
This was the psychological
handicap which Wood faced in his
match with the Pasadena wizard
of the turf. As thousands of spec
tators looked r.n, expecting to see
a sure victory for Vines, they were
startled, stunned and finally just
coming out of a mob lethargy,
