Robert Sharp Bean
\ LTHOUGH the flag flies at half-mast for Robert Sharp
Bean, there is no shadow on the Oregon campus.
Robert Sharp Bean means more to the University than the
history of his life or of the high position which he held in the
fulfillment of Oregon’s statehood. He represents today, as he
did before his death, that vigor, those high ideals, and that self
reliance which his life impressed upon the University and the
While his body lies buried at Portland, his memory will be
enriched as the years pass by with the school of which he was
both a graduate and a director. So it is true that there is
no shadow on the Oregon campus.
The records and the position of Judge Bean testify to his
eminently keen mind and to the remarkable clarity of his deci
sions. Yet the University knows him as more than judge. Born
1854, and graduating from the University with the first class,
Robert Sharp Bean typifies well the pioneer successful striving
for future common benefit. His long period of membership on
the board of regents gave him ample opportunity to shape the
University's growth. He took that opportunity.
To those familiar with that span of years which was marked
by the University's struggle for existence, then gradual emer
gence into a place of educational importance and confidence in
Oregon public opinion, Judge Bean’s service to his University
will be gratefully remembered as one of patience and scholarly
confidence that in the end the institution would forge ahead as
merit of its work indicated. So said an alumnus familiar with
Robert Sharp Bean’s regency in those years.
Yet it is a cold record of facts indeed, no matter how glo
rious the rise behind it, which places in the dead past all of
his achievements. Just as his work on the state and federal
benches cannot be measured alone in terms of individual cases,
but also in the precedent and universal wisdom of his decisions—
just so is this most distinguished alumnus of the University re
markable in the degree to which his dead hand guides the
Not only in the hearts of those who knew him as a kindly
and excellent friend, but also in the lives of those who knew
him not, is his work perpetuated.

gene Register-Guard; Robert C.
Hall, Arne G. Rae, and George
Godfrey , of the University school
of journalism. It was declared last
night by the judges that difficulty
was being encountered in choosing
the winners, so close is this year’s
competition. One of the best dis
plays entered during the three
years’ existence of the contest.
Officers To Be Chosen
Officers for next year's confer
ence will be elected following the
naming of the cup winners, bring
ing the conference to a close.
Dean Eric W. Allen, of the Uni
versity school of journalism, will
address the press conference on the
subject, “What Can the High
School Paper Do for Che-Student
and the School;” and the editor of
the Roseburg News-Review, Harris
Ellsworth, will discuss, “Handling
the News.” A question box will
follow the talks.
"The best newspaper,” Mr. Tug
man, of the Eugene Register
Guard, said at yesterday’s press
session, “is one that does what it
knows to be right. It commands
the respect of the people, whether
they agree with its policy or not.
The newspaper must be friendly,
fair, understanding, and patient;
and, above all, must pursue a fear
less news policy.”
“Within the bounds of common
decency and respect, the students
should be allowed to say anything
they think about the faculty or
anybody else," the speaker said.
"Every paper should be self-sup
porting,” he asserted, “and if your
high school paper cannot pay its
own way it should go out of exist
ence. High school advertising can
be sold and does not have to be
begged. If your editorial policy

The press conference separated
into four groups: editors of news
papers, managers of newspapers,
editors of annuals and managers
of annuals, each group attending
only those meetings which applied
to them. Each group was furnish
ed with speakers especially quali
fied to answer questions and solve
Mr. Turnbull, professor in jour
nalism at the University, delivered
an address in which he stressed the
importance of accuracy and defin
iteness at the afternoon session.
Robert C. Hall, superintendent of
the University Press, talked on
.“Makeup and the Mechanical End
of the Newspaper,” and Jack
Burke, former sports editor of the
Emerald, talked about the place
and the importance of sports in the
paper. Kay Yasue, Hood River
high school, spoke of the problems
of the high school newspaper.
The newspaper managers were
entertained by speakers wlio re
ferred to the business end of the
paper and went about finding ways
and means of putting the paper on
a paying basis.
Arne G. Rae, field manager of
the Oregon State Editorial associa
tion; W. F. G. Thacher, of the
school of journalism, and Tony Pe
terson, business manager of the
Emerald, each talked on the busi
ness of managing a paper.
