Of Accounting in
Cities Is Urged
Professor Kelly Draws Up
Mimieipal Plan Making
Cities in Oregon, by adoption of
a standard, uniform system of
municipal accounting, not only can
set up a rnpre efficient city ad
ministration, but such a system
can be a distinct asset in a pro
motional way, it is pointed out
here by business experts of the
University, who have recently re
ceived copies of the uniform sys
tem devised by C. L. Kelly, pro
fessor of business administration,
and a committee working under
the direction of Hal E. Hoss, sec
retary of state.
Copies Now Ready
The uniform system was drawn
up in accordance with an act of
the 1929 legislature, and copies
are now available to any munici
pality which applies for them.
With this system in operation,
extremely valuable data can be
obtained quickly for commercial or
industrial organizations planning
on establishing branches or plants
in different Oregon localities, it is
shown. Also, comparative data
can easily be kept, so that the
progress of the city from year to
year can be noted.
Another great advantage of a
uniform system is that the various
cities can exchange data on va
rious phases and this may result
in greater efficiency and in some
cases an actual saving, since ex
perience of others can be utilized.
Plan Modern One
The plan is based on the double
entry system and upon the use of
columnar records and controlling
accounts. All forms are strictly
in line with modern accepted prin
ciples of municipal accounting.
Working with Mr. Kelly on the
system were Conda J. Ham, C.P.A.,
of Portland; John W. Butler, city
recorder, Marshfield; W. B. Dil
lard, county clerk, Eugene; Sephus
W. Starr, C.P.A., Salem.

Bishop Sumner Pays Tribute
To Oregon9s Grand Old Man
Dean Straub Described as
"I should like to pay tribute to
Dean Straub,” said the Right Rev
erend Walter Taylor Sumner, Epis
copal bishop of Oregon, who was
in Eugene last week-end. “He has
always seemed to me an insep
arable part of this University, as
with courtesy and consideration
he used to meet me and introduce
me at lectures during the many
visits I have made to the Oregon
campus. It grieves me to see him
in ill health, unable just now to
perform the activities that made
up his life of service to Oregon.
“To me, Dean Straub embodies
all the traditions of Oregon,” the
bishop continued, “and it is these
traditions that have underlain all
the growth that the University
"It has been a remarkable prog
ress, and I have watched with
great interest the physical and
cultural changes apparent during
the seventeen visits I have made
here for conferences.
“I can remember distinctly the
old football field in the place now
occupied by the new Fine Arts
museum. As we sat in the rain
and cheered the team, the players
would have to help each other out
of the mud in which the one at
the bottom of the scrimmage could
easily have been drowned.
"All these new buildings are
only a natural part of the growth
of the institution. But there have
been changes in personnel, too,
that are, to me, more interesting.
“A different type of student
now Attends the University, no
finer than the former, but more
representative of the population of
the state. They conform more to
an average age and are a cross
section of the young people in the
“The only thing X would have
otherwise,” Bishop Sumner de
clared, "is that more of them
would at least begin with the def
inite goal of graduation. I am be
ginning to discount any statement
that a student ‘attended’ the Uni
versity of Oregon, and value
highly the fact that he ‘graduated’
"The strength of a university
depends upon the achievements of
its student.3, and those who show
a creditable four-year course are
reasonably certain of success in fu
“I sincerely hope that every
Oregon student, who is able, will
complete a four-year course and
go through life with the back
ground that this will give. Then
will the traditions and hopes and
services of Oregon’s great people,
like Dean Straub, be repaid.”

Today is your last chance to see
a first rate drama dealing with a
yellow newspaper, “The Scandal
Sheet,” playing at the McDonald
Without any of the elaborately
faked atmosphere that makes
spectacles out of many pictures
dealing with an evil influence in a
profession, it tells a simple, direct,
and highly dramatic story of the
editor of a scandal sheet, whose
desire for news that will gain cir
culation, ruins the lives of the in
nocent. “The Scandal Sheet” is
today the best picture in town.
Much of its success is due to three
of the few intelligent actors in
Hollywood, George Bancroft, Clive
Brook, and Kay Francis.

The Marseilles, itself, the dra
matic national hymn of France, is
the inspiration for this film, an

HAPPINESS PREVAILS IN
HAWAII, SAYS KAAHEA
(Continued from rage One)
largest of the Hawaiian islands.
Most of his life, however, was
spent at Wainanae on the island
of Oahu. There Henry’s parents
still live. He was educated, how
ever at Honolulu, where he attend
ed the Katnehameha school. Of
this school Henry has a lot to say
for it was there that he first be
came desirous of coming to Ameri
ca. The school, which is limited
to only Hawaiian boys and girls,
was endowed by the last princess
of the Kamehameha dynasty, Ber
nice Pauahi Bishop. This woman
who was very beautiful and of no
ble character, had the foresight to
see the need of a school for native
Hawaiians, and she thus made it
possible for education to be car
ried to many who would have oth
erwise been unable to receive the
cherished learning they desired.
In this school, as well as in all
the other schools throughout the
islands, the majority of teachers
are Americans, although there are
some who were educated in the
native schools. Most of the stu
dents in Hawaii finish high school,
though they are more inclined to
study trades than devote them
selves to the academic courses.
"Honolulu,” says Henry, "offers
many chances for the student to
work his way through school, and
the number of young people avail
ing themselves of this opportunity
is quite evident of the desire for
education in Hawaii.”
In the primitive times the Ha
waiians worshipped various gods
which represented to them certain
elements of nature. The command
ing deity of all was Ono, to whom
all other gods acknowledged alle
giance. There were gods of war, of
beauty, of the hunt, of fish, of the
weather, and of various other ele
ments which entered into Hawaii's
daily life. Kukuena, goddes of the
lei and beauty, was one of their
most loved deities, for the Hawai
ian people are lovers of beauty.
The goddess, Pele, sister of Vol
cano, was the one to whom the
people offered sacrifices of berries
and roast pig during times of vol
canic eruption. As a code of eth
4cs the native Hawaiians had what
they called kapus#(our term for
taboos). According to one of these
rules it was unlawful for men and
j women to eat together. This kapu,
however, was early broken down
! by a native prince. There were
I certain places one couldn’t go, and
by no means was a common citi
zen to let his shadow fall across
that of a chieftain. The kapus also
made it unlawful for anyone to
kill another person without provo
Modem religions have, however,
made strong inroads upon Hawaii,
and there are many Christian con
verts in the islands. Buddhism is
also growing stronger among the
natives. The missionaries are re
; sponsible for a great deal of mod
ernization of Hawaii, but Henry
Kaahea often wonders if the new
order of things have been a greater
benefit than harm. “For,” he says,
“the old Hawaiian race is dying
off, and one must travel far into
the interior regions to find the old
type of Hawaiian. Once the people
were strong and large, typical of
outdoor, healthy people. However,
the white man came. He clothed
us in his garb, and made us live in
houses typical of those used by his
people. He overlooked the fact
that the conditions of Hawaii were
different than those of his own
country, and that we were accus
tomed to live in a far different way
than he. Consequently the Hawai
ians of today are far removed in
physical condition from what their
fathers once were.”
Kaahea is proud of his native
race. He loves their characteris
tics of generosity, of hospitality,
and courtesy. “In Hawaii,” he says,
“the people extend to strangers
the best of everything they have.
There, unlike in America, it’s not
just the handshaking. The people
mean their displayal of hospital
ity.” The Hawaiians, according to
Henry, are always care-free and
happy. This leads many Ameri
cans to believe them lazy and
shiftless. Such an idea, however,
is erroneous because it is the na
ture of the people to be joyous. All
their beautiful surroundings force
Ithem to be happy, and from their
very earliest childhood this char
acteristic is being bred into them.
Kaahea is well known on the
I campus because of his singing at
| numerous functions. He also sings
each Sunday afternoon, from 4:30
; to 5 o’clock over station KORE.
Mixing modern jazz with beautiful
Hawaiian melodies he hums his
way into the hearts of all who
! hear him.

Chinese Calendar Reckoning
Jregon Student Pictures
SLEANOR JANE BALEANTYNE
Although very few of the Chin
ese still observe the old style of
*Jew Year’s celebration, the cus
ume is not so old but that it can
)e clearly recalled by one student
>n this campus—King Yat Chen,
i Chinese student who is a fresh
nan in business administration.
Many people may not realize
hat today is Chinese New Year,
)ut since the old Chinese calendar
s quite different from our own,
yesterday was December 31, and
oday is January 1, in its estima
ion. According to this old calen
lar, the first moon marks the be
ginning of January, the second the
jeginning of February, and so on
hroughout the year.
“Very few Chinese v now have
he old New Year,” said Mr. Chan.
'They have it as it is here.”
He very obligingly described the
mcient custom of celebrating the
dew Year, however, which he
daims corresponds to our Christ
nas. The houses are decorated
limply by putting a picture on the
vail, with a table containing can
ly, nuts and fruit at its base. Fire
:rackers are strung around the
“At New Year’s every person,
lusiness man, and farmer stops
vork for half a month,” Mr. Chan
:ontinued. “They only eat and
alk.” The schools, too, he said,
lave a long vacation, which ends
ifter the fifteenth of the month.
There is no street celebration
such as ours on New Year’s eve,
iut on the night of December 31
;here is a big banquet. Then at
12 o’clock all the little boys be
ween 12 and 15 years old get out
>f bed and get a little tree, which
hey carry through the streets,
jailing out wishes of good luck for
heir fathers and their family as
hey go. Then they return home.
X.t about 6:30 they get up again
o offer up prayers for an hour
or their family, and their fath
:r’s prosperity. They go to bed
igain and the next time they arise
ill the little boys and girls in the
amily receive gifts of money from
heir parents. On this day every
one dresses up very nicely, accord
ing to Mr. Chan.
The Chinese New Year's resem
bles our Christmas in that during
this time there is a day set aside,
January 4, to worship their Ances
tors, similar to our Christmas
church service, and the dinners
which are given on December 31
and January 1, are similar to our
Christmas and New Year’s dinners. 0
Mr. Chan has been in this coun
try not quite a year, having ar
rived in San Francisco on March
19, 1930. He is taking finance in

and hopes some time to do “some
thing” in the Chinese government.
