Faculty Says Better Grades
Go to Those Who Own Books
That Oregon students spend for
textbooks less than one-half the
amount spent by students on any
other university campus on the
Pacific coast is shown by Co-op
statistics. Stanford, which leads
in textbook sales, likewise leads
in scholarship. Is there any cor
relation between textbook sales
and scholarship ? If so, should
the library reserve system be as
extensively used at Oregon as it
now is? These were the questions
asked of several outstanding men
and women in different University
“If we had no reserve system,
I wouldn't introduce it,” declared
Dr. C. V. Boyer, head of the Eng
lish department. “Its one justifi
cation is for students who can’t
afford to I>uy their books. There
is no substitute for a book which
you can buy, read, annotate, carry
with you, and keep. Study ought
to, and love of literature does,
lead to the possession and love of
“More effective teaching can be
done when textbooks are not ad
hered to too exclusively. As far
as buying books is concerned, I
think books for general reading
are of greater value for a stu
dent’s personal library than text
books,” asserted M. H. Douglass,
University librarian. “The ideal
situation would be to have one or
two standard books as texts, and
use the reserves for supplemen

The film is the tale of a lovely

There she becomes the recipient
of a handsome count’s affections.
The latter becomes her hairdress

there seems to be a lack of that
disposition among our students.
Very few requests have come to
me on where to get a certain book.
Of course, there are the monetary
values to be considered, and it is
generally conceded that more af

Professor Turnbull, of the jour
nalism department, said, “A stu
dent is more likely to do better
work and enjoy it more if he owns
his own book, and can study when
and where he pleases, than if he
had to depend on library facilities

O. F. Stafford, chairman of the
chemistry department, stated,
“Every student should have at his
own desk books which represent a
substantial outline or framework
of his course. It is impossible to
put within the compass of any
textbook the supporting material
the book should have. To fill this
need is the function of the reserve
library. There should be little dif
