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 miss a chance to see a good game? Of course I will come, for now I have two additional attractions.” Dr. Lufer Plans Research Work On Rare Fossils Ex-graduate Returns To Study Fossils Found In Oregon Dr. R. L. Lufer, a graduate of this University in ’26, has return ed to the geology department to 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 revealing fossil areas in this coun try. Dr. Lufer is working on the Cephalopods, fossils that were created during the Jurassic period some 80 million years ago. He hopes to relate these to similar de-. posits in Great Britain and France which took place about the same time. He is able to come here through the Storrow Fellowship given him by the National Research Council, and also by a grant given him for field work done in central Oregon last summer. Dr. Lufer will stay here until December, when he will go to the University of Washing ton at Seattle to work under Dr. Charles E. Weaver, head of the geology department there. Robert F. Jackson Gives Speech Before Seminar Robert F. Jackson, graduate student in the physics department, was the speaker at the weekly physics seminar Wednesday after noon. His subject was on the ap plication of new wave mechanics to the measurement of the charge and mass of electrons. Prof. A. E. Caswell will be the speaker next week. Julius Meier Emphasizes Importance of Education By MERLIN BLAIS 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 (Continaed on Page Three) Junior Class Will Sponsor Campus Hop Junior Jinx Is First of Its Kind in History of The University Jack Edlefsen Appointed By Pot win To Head Committee For the first time in history, the junior class will “open up” in the fall term. On November 14, im Art Potwin nediately follow ing the frosh rook game, an all campus infor mal dance, spon sored by the class of '32 will be held in Me Arthur court. Art Potwin, president of the class, in announc ing the plans for the Junior Jinx, said, “This year the class voted to do something different and have n fall term dance. The best time will undoubtedly be after the night football game between the O. S. C. rooks and the Oregon frosh. It is to be an informal dance for the whole campus, with a charge of only 50 cents for each man; wo men will be considered free guests. First Junior Jinx This is the first Junior Jinx and it is the hope of the junior class that this event shall be the start of a precedent in the form of an annual Jinx. The decorations for the dance will be of a most novel sort, according to Potwin, the main theme being that of football. Jack Edlefsen has been appoint ed chairman of the Jinx commit tee by Potwin and will announce the members of his committees the first of next week. "Jack has always been one of the best workers in our class and certainly deserves the faith and support of all its members in pre paring this all-campus dance,” Potwin declared. "He has headed and served on many committees in the past. Some of his activities are: He was chairman of the soph omore banquet committee, served on the sophomore informal direc torate, and was assistant chairman for the Homecoming decorations committee and materials commit tee last year.” AWS Plans Two More ’Mum Sales Women To Sell Flowers at U.C.L.A., O.S.C.

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. Rally Dance Slated Today At Men’s Gym Affair To Last From 1 tof>, To Bo Free, All-campus, No-«late Party Weber’s Orchestra Will Play; Students To Bring Dads to Event The men's gym will be the mecca of football-minded students from 4 to 6 o’clock this afternoon when the first pre-game rally dance of the school year will be given under the direction of Brian Mimnaugh, chairman of the rally directorate, and his corps of stu dent workers. The rally dance will be an all campus, informal, no-charge, no date affair, according to the rally directors, planned to arouse pep for the Idaho game Saturday. It was announced yesterday that the dance would be held at Mc Arthur court, but as the Igloo floor could not be obtained, the rally celebration was switched last night to the men's gym.

Music for the dance will be fur nished by George Weber and his four-piece orchestra. Although the dance is being held early and before the game with the Vandals, membersfof the rally committee felt yesterday that the affair would prove a bet ter feature than a post-game cele bration. It is the plan of the rally chiefs to get Oregon rooters as keyed up over the Vandal invasion as they were over the Washington game in Portland last Saturday. Pep and lots of it will be gener ated at the dance today to instill enthusiasm into every rooter. Speakers will visit all campus living organizations this noon in the interests of the rally dance.

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 lost. “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.
