TO PREACH or dissertate upon a subject of sage seriousness at
a time such as this when the mind of the reader is filled with
radical excitement and fervor of the approaching combat to be held
at Portland this week-end is both unnecessary and frightfully un
called for. To calmly attempt to pump bits of solemn advice into
the altruistic student is out out until the present few days of
frivolity have come to an end.
We are glad, overjoyed, and filled with gratitude over the ex
cellent show of enthusiasm displayed by students over the Wash
ington-Oregon game. We are even more pleased and even aston
ished at the hearty support citizens of Portland are showing and
the preparations being made for Oregon’s reception. With Portland
primed and the Webfoots loaded for huge sled dogs—how can some
thing keep from happening?
In the fun and gaiety promised for this week-end, why not
instill in it a spirit of serious-frivolity? Remain conscious of two
things throughout the visit to the northern city. Remember, two
things hamper your personal liberty.
1. Organized support of Oregon’s boosting spirit. Be at the
rally tonight without fail. Unite with your classmates to serpen
tine to Multnomah stadium Saturday at 12:30. Cheer your heartiest
in the rooters’ section.
2. Each individual is representing the University of Oregon
and his living organization. Reputations other than his own arfe
at stake. Make Portland welcome future Oregon games and let
them profit by our visit. Maintain a gentlemanly and womanly
Classroom—A Criminal Court
AMONG peculiar and unconventional methods of classroom in
■ struction successfully tried by educators who are constantly
seeking- new and modern means of imparting knowledge in the
higher institution is that inaugurated at Rollins college, a school
of only 400 students.
Dispensation of what was deemed trite and out-of-date teach
ing methods and substitution of a theory designed to shift the forms
of responsibility from the faculty and administration to the students
has been instituted because it is the belief of the college officials
that young people will really accept responsibility and carry it well.
We are intensely interested in this movement which has sprung
from this little school. We admire their aim and believe that their
ideas ought to be considered seriously by the other leading edu
cators of the present day.
Of peculiar interest is the manner in which the Rollins officials
select their teachers. They have concentrated their attention on
improved methods of teaching. An applicant for a Rollins position
will be rejected, regardless of extensive education, unless he is the
type of person who may work with the students rather than above
This point, in fact, is the foundation of their system. Nothing
revolutionary, we might say, but merely a common sense move
which dispenses with the feeling of subordination a student carries
in the classroom of many of today’s institutions. Rollins officials
“thumbs down’’ on the lecture and recitation methods. A student,
they say, in such a class will feel he is doing his ultimate duty in
making a pretense at writing a few notes and paying a certain
degree of attention to the lecturer who stands at the head of the
class and shouts a series of words in hopes that the student may
grasp one or two as he passes by.
For the instructor to remain quiet in a room allowing students
to discuss topics which have been presented to them, now and then
answering a question one may have raised, presents a favorable
departure from many present methods, in advocation of such a
system it is obviously impossible to apply it to other than certain
adaptable classes or subjects.
in regard to the present lecture ami recitation methods, Ham
ilton Holt has expressed an opinion on the Hollins Idea in an article
in a current issue of "The Nation.” Ho declares: “The lecture
system seemed to me to be a failure because under it students are
regarded as so many passive objects into which a professor pours
information for an hour two or three times a week ami then asks
lot certain amounts <>t it back in periodical examinations. Neither
the professor nor the student needs to be more than half awake
tor the process to go on . . . the professor may regard it as a
necessary evil in the way of his pet occupation of research or writ
ing, the student feels that it he fills his seat ami makes some show
of taking notes he is doing his part.
"Almost as completely a failure, it seemed to me, had been the
iec Ration system under which the teacher acts as inquisitor ami
murks ot gtades the student on his ability to answer occasional
questions on material he has been assigned to study by himself.
Iht student needs the teacher s help, not when he has learned or
f tiled to learn his assignment, lint during the process ot' learning
Under the recitation system as practiced in most colleges the class
room becomes a sort of criminal court where the teacher as judge,
prosecutor, and detective attempts to find out, often unsuccess
fully, whether or not the student has mastered his lesson, and the
student is mainly interested in creating a good impression, by bluff
ing or otherwise."

“Specimen hunters” are often
speaking of the skulls, bones, and
other wierd articles found under
neath Deady hall, but we do not
hear much about the specimens to
be found on the top story of the
University's oldest building. Per
haps after plodding up five flights
of stairs the “hunter” is too ex
hausted to observe the display.
While climbing up these stairs
we smell strange, “scientific”
odors coming from rooms when
embryo physicists and chemists
are conducting experiments.
Finally we reach our destina
tion, and after regaining our
breath we look about us. We find
human skulls and the skulls of
animals, bones of a porpoise from
Massachusetts, a Florida saw-fish,
and jaws of a shark.
Eut perhaps we are not interest
ed entirely in bones, so we go to
the next case, and here we find
many fine specimens of stuffed
blackbirds, meadow larks, hawks,
owls, pheasants, swans, deer,
bears, squirrels, and others. We
also find collections of nests, and
eggs, varying from over five inch
es in diameter to less than one
In another case we see a decay
ed hemlock log, a thin, white strip.
And if we are chemists we look at
the bottles showing how corn is
changed into syrups, starch, etc.
