Twin Daughters
Welcome ’O’ Dad
QREGON grad and track let
tcrnian 22 years ago is the
history of one Oregon Dad who
will be a guest on the campus
for Dad’s Day. He is Leslie P.
Miller, superintendent of schools
at Drain, Oregon, and graduate
of the University in 1908.
Mr. Miller will be the guest
of his twin daughters, Juanita
Miller an.l Willetta Miller Hart
ley, who are juniors on the Ore
gon campus. In answer to an
invitation to attend the Dad’s
Day activities on the campus,
Mr. Miller wrote: “Did I ever

Ex-graduate Returns To

Dr. R. L. Lufer, a graduate of
this University in ’26, has return

do research work on fossils taken
from an old bed which Dr. Earl
Fackard, geology professor, dis
covered in 1926 in central Oregon.
After graduation Lufer went to
the California Institution of Tech
nology in Pasadena where he re
ceived his doctor’s degree in pa
leontology. He was there three
years, and it was there that he
became interested in the great fos
sil bed in central Oregon. This
fossil bed is an old island which
protrudes up through the lava in
central Oregon. Millions of years
ago there was a series of seas and
upheavals that left one of the most

Robert F. Jackson Gives
Speech Before Seminar
Robert F. Jackson, graduate
student in the physics department,

Julius Meier Emphasizes
Importance of Education
Julius Meier does not impress
one as being a politician, as the
w ord is commonly understood. He
is too quiet, too unimpressive, at
least, for platform dynamics, to
make a good politician. But he
has the earmarks of a business
man, and that is, admittedly, his
realm. Meier is a business man
even in his conversation. His
words, his sentences, have the di
rectness and lack of adornment
which characterizes the man of
industry or commerce, but he has
acquired a vigilance over his ev
ery statement, which is so relig
iously followed, that he seems to
speak almost with reluctance.
The independent candidate for
governor received the Emerald re
porter at his fourth floor apart
ment at the Eugene hotel, but, ow
ing to a speaking engagement or
two immediately in the offing, the
interview was cut so short that
tlie minutes could be counted on
the fingers of both hands.
Meier graduated from the Uni
versity of Oregon in 1895, having
majored in law, and since that
time has been interested in the
welfare of the institution.
“When I graduated there were
about 40 who received diplomas.
During the last few years the num
ber of graduates has been meas
ured in terms of many hundreds.
That, I think, indicates the pro
gress the University has made.
Every succeeding year has seen a
graduating class composed of bet
ter and better young men and wo
men equipped with a more valua
ble and useful training. The Uni
versity shall continue to grow in
the future, and it will always have
all the help I shall be able to give,
for the welfare of the entire state
system of education is directly in
line with both the Joseph plat
form and with my personal be
liefs,” Mr. Meier said.
The Eugene visitor turned the
conversation to the campaign,
which will end at the polls a scant
12 days from today. He is in the
gubernatorial race heart and soul,
as evidenced by his constant ref

This is the first Junior Jinx and
it is the hope of the junior class

"Jack has always been one of

Potwin declared. "He has headed

All Male Talent
Feature of KORE
Radio Broadcast
Many Features Presented
By Campus Musicians
And Actors
A program, featuring talent con
sisting entirely of men, reached a
new high point for campus broad
casts Thursday night when the
fifth “Oregon Daily Emerald of
the Air” was presented over sta
tion KORE.
Barney Miller, new continuity
editor for the programs, took the
part of little Cynthia McMudmask
perfectly and told the radio audi
ence all about the trials and tribu
lations of a freshman girl during
rush week. The first installment
of the all-thriller bedtime story,
“Shredded,” was also given by Edi
tor Miller.
Also taking honors on the pro
gram were the arrangements of
“Confessing” and “Singing in the
Rain” by Dale Brown, piano, and
Wilbur Thibault, violin. Each of
these boys also did some splendid
solo work. “I’m Yours” and “It
Seems To Be Spring” were sung
by Bob Goodrich with Dale Brown
at the studio grand.
“That's Grandma,” given by
Johnny Smedburg, drew g big
hand among the numbers on the
program. Smedburg and Dave
Eyre gave a piano novelty in the
form of “Happy Feet.”
Between these special l^dio acts
the Midway Varsitarians did some
excellent orchestra work. Mem
bers of the Midway band are
George Nieme, business manager,
Geoge Barron, Leo Lohikoski, Joe
Haslinger, Byron Patterson, and
Morgan Johnson.
A program including a new ar
ray of campus talent, along with
the regular numbers by the Mid
way Varsitarians, is slated for
Sunday night’s broadcast, accord
ing to Art Potwin, director of the
Emerald hour, and his assistant,
Chet Knowlton.
California Dads
Oregon Boosters
Several Coming Today for
Week-end Aeiivilies
Oregon students have the spirit
which reaches beyond Oregon into
several states, and especially into
the sister state, California. The
Californians brag about their cli
mate and their scenery, but when
it comes to colleges many of them
send their children to Oregon.
An organization of Oregon Dads
was formed in California last year,
with Rufus Kimball of Palo Alto,
elected president of the group. He
is the father of Rufus Kimball Jr.,
sophomore in journalism, and will
be one of the enthusiastic dads to
attend the week-end celebrations
of the University campus, Satur
day and Sunday.
The Oregon Dads from Califor
nia formed the organization with
the purpose of discussing and
studying conditions in which their
sons and daughters live and study.
Several of the dads plan to be in
Eugene for Dad’s day.
Mr. Kimball, who is also a mem
ber of the executive council of all
Oregon Dads, will arrive in Eu
I gene Friday.

Men Outnumber Women
In Infirmary, Says Nurse
Infirmary statistics show that
men are more inclined to use the
infirmary service than are the
women, according to Helen Flem
ing, nurse in charge.
The situation is very definitely
perceptible, she says, as only
rarely do women outnumber the
men in the sick ward. She ac
counts for this by the fact that
women are more inclined to nurse
and care for each other than are
the men. At the present time
there are eight men and four
women confined to the infirmary.
They are:
Paulette Beall, Edith Geiser,
Margaret%Ormandy, Rose Smith,
Con Hammond, Virgil La Claire,
Wilbur Peterson, Carl Monroe,
Harold Johnson, Carl Stutsman, R.
W. Schofield, and Harry McCall.

Scotch Very Americanized
Is Report of Dr. E. P. Kremer
“One is struck by the great dif-1
ferences between the countries of
Europe while traveling through
them,” said Dr. Edmund P. Kre
mer, of the Germanic languages
department, who traveled in Eu
rope this summer.
"Scotland, for instance, is very
Americanized. There are filling
stations on nearly every corner of
the cities. There are a great many
automobiles, too. Of course, the
country and the mountains have a
natural beauty which cannot be
“England is quite different. The
people are not so hurried as those
in Scotland. The English gentle
man is too anxious to keep the
crease in his trousers just right,
to hurry like the Scotch and the
Americans do. The ladies, too,
seem to have their minds fixed on
shopping and clothes.
“I like the cleanliness of the
northern cities. The Swedish and
Norwegian people are very intelli
gent and courteous. I enjoyed my
self thoroughly while there.
"The Austrians are very like the
Americans. They are always ready
for a good time,” Dr. Kremer ob
served. “They are wide awake and
very hospitable.
“Conditions are very bad in Ger
many at the present time. The
pulse of the country seems to be
stopped. There is no money in
evidence and the unemployment
problem is very serious.
“The country, however, is very
beautiful. The land, which is di
vided into small strips amdng the
peasants, is planted with different
kinds of crops which make the
landscape very attractive. Instead
of the endless miles of wheat and
corn that one sees on the great
farms of the American Middle
West, one sees tiny gardens and
cottages where peasants work, in
picturesque costumes, at theii;
daily tasks.”
Doctor Kremer collected many
tine books while in Europe. Some
of these books are written in Ger
man and some in Swedish. Three
of this collection are especially
valuable. They are a set of en
cyclopedias of Germanic literature
and are bound in paper and leather
of modernistic design.
