Education for His People
T jis aim was to amass a fortune, and to use it, not for him
self, but for others. He those as his home the newly
developed territory in Lake county, Oregon, then even richer in
soil and heavier in timber than today. This man was a young
physician Dr. Bernard Daly a man with vision, faith, honesty,
and sound business ability.
Establishing himself in his chosen profession by immediate
provision for an extended practice and the organization of a
drug store, Dr. Daly won the respect of his fellow citizens and
in later years became county judge and representative in the
state legislature. Being drawn away from the practice of medi
cine by numerous deals in sheep and cattle, his fortune began
to accumulate. As president of the Bank of Lakeview he was
known as cool, honest, and intelligent. He found himself the
owner of a large cattle ranch, the 7T. He was a man who would
be first to own an automobile, but last to trade it for a newer
model. His incidental gifts were many, but small. His pleasure
rested in giving—benefiting others. His old jack-knife would
find a haven in the pocket of a small boy rather than in the
scrap box.
Dr. Bernard Daly lived cheaply and his fortune grew. His
death, which came before he had reached an old age, was
mourned by every county resident.
His friends throughout all southern Oregon awakened to a
new understanding of what his life had meant when his will—
a long-to-be-remembered will was read. It was a will of end
less benefit to Lake county. IT PROVIDED A COLLEGE EDU
SCHOOL GRADUATES EACH YEAR. Perhaps this had been
his plan for years. He had mentioned it to no one, but his
thought of others has given him a name always to be respected.
The Bernard Daly Educational Fund, as his fortune is now
called, is administered by a board of directors. Sixty or more
students are now attending Oregon institutions of higher learn
ing on that money which was accumulated in southern Oregon.
At the University of Oregon twenty-two students are receiving
their education. Each is allowed $G00 yearly, and the award,
in most cases, is given for a four-year period. The requirements
are few, "most deserving" being foremost.
A man who could struggle an entire lifetime to fill a bag
with nearly $1,000,000, then give it back to the county from
which most of it had come, is a man to be honored and remem
bered. His picture which hangs in the office of the dean of
men is of a man who thought, not of himself, but of his friends,
their children, and their county.
Bon Voyage, Debaters
f’J'WO days more, and three Oregon students will be leaving
the campus on one of the most significant and important
student projects ever undertaken in the history of the University.
With Bob T. Miller, Huger Pfaff, and Dave Wilson, the mem
bers of the Pacific Basin Debate team, go the good wishes of
the Emerald, the student body, the faculty and the administra
tion. The approval of the faculty and the respect and liking of
his fellow students give each member of the team a foundation
which qualifies him us a suitable representative of the University
of Oregon at the several score schools to be visited in New
Zealand, Australia, India, the Philippines, China, Japan, and the
Hawaiian Islands.
It is gratifying to note the interest that important individuals
and agencies in the state have taken in this unique University
project. From Governor Meier on down through newspaper edi
tors, civic club officers, mayors of cities and public-spirited citi
zens -all have taken a helpful interest which speaks well for the
forward-looking attitude of the state toward Oregon’s place in
the era of the Pacific.
The real significance of the tour lies in the indication it gives
that American students are beginning to replace the provincial
attitudes of tin past vs itli an intelligent interest in what is going
on in the rest of the world. Those who realize that the future
ot tile United Slates of America will be determined largely by
their colleges and universities may find cause for optimism in
evidence that their students are giving attention to the place of
America among the United States of the World.
The possibilities of such international good-will projects us
the Pacific Basin tour are unlimited. The use that will be made
of them in this case rests with the three who are going. For
them it will be more Important to bring back to our campus a
thorough knowledge of what the youth of other nations think
of our country than to act as missionaries of “Americanism.”
Wc wish Miller, Pfaff and Wilson bon voyage, forensic sue
ce and a ale return to the routine of a "formal" education
nent January.

* As we sit here musing a bit, *
* Larry Bay, who used to be *
* frosh class prexy in his day, *
* hey, hey, came champing in *
* foamii g at the mouth. It *
* seems that he is all heated up *
* over the fact that there has *
* beeu the same splotch of *
* green paint on the senior *
* bench for the past two *
* months, and no one has paid *
* any attention to it. “Last *
* year I spent the best part of *
* my life cleanin’ that thing *
* off,” he rants. "What the *
* deuce is to be done about it?” *
->:■ * * -!' # ******
The only suggestion which we
have to offer at the present time
is on the spur of the moment, hut
we believe it’s the only solution to
the problem. Why not put the
Senior bench down in the College
side and we’ll guarantee that if
Hunt Clark or Torry Shell don’t
wear the paint off, the Tri-Delts

Removing her boots;
She sez: "How I love
Abysmal brutes.”
And now, of course, our
thoughts wander more or less list
lessly to the class elections tomor
row. In the senior class, we fi
nally pinned the presidential can
didates down to definite state
ments on what they stood for: "If
elected, I shall see that the senior
class does tilings which are new
and different,” said Wilson. “If
the students of the senior class
see fit to entrust me with the
reins of Government, I shall guar
antee a policy which will not he
the same as in former years. All
! will be Changed,” thundered Bar
I endrick. “And I,” said Blais, “am
running on an entirely different
(principle. If I receive the votes,
i I shall propogate a policy which
will he totally unlike that of for
mer years.”

BRUCE HAMBY, one of the
demon sports writers about the
shack, just blew in to make the
sage remark that in Kitten ball,
it was an assured fact that the
women showed more and better
form than the men did.
That sounded all right when he
said it, hut now that we see it in
print,-we jvonder.

And now we’ve often wondered
why, with all the natural advan
tages they have in regard to loca
tion etc., the Phi Delts never
throw a barn dance.
Little Mercedes just dropped in,
looked over our shoulder, and
asked us what the heck did we
think the Odor of the “O” brawl
was for?

There were originally 21 men in his
company but before two months
81 different men had served in it.
Men were continually being re
lieved because of the fever. They
were forced to take quinine con
tinually, about 21 grains a week
to avoid the danger as much as
possible. At another time during
an epidemic of cholera men died
like flies, but by careful observ
ance of sanitary rules Conyer’s
company was able to avpid it. So
hard was it to get experienced mil
itary men to come to the islands
that as a special inducement dou
ble time toward retirement was al
lowed, so for his five years there
Sergeant Conyers received ten
years’ credit. His work there con
sisted mostly of help in making a
topographical survey of the island.
After leaving the Philippines
Sergeant Conyers spent a year at
Leavenworth, Texas, and as army
life became a bit monotonous to
him he resigned and then joined
the Mexican army under General
Calles who was later made presi
dent of Mexico. Here he found
conditions much different than in
the American army. The company
in which he enlisted was made up
of men from almost every nation,
and their quarters, in matters of
cleanliness, was a sharp contrast
to those of the American army.
Becoming disgusted with the
Mexican army after one month
Sergeant Conyers again enlisted in
the American army about the
time the United States entered the

Wond war. He took an active part
in organizing and training men for
the war.
“My work here has been very
enjoyable,” Sergeant Conyers said.
"At first, getting organized was
harder than work in the regular
army but now we have student of
ficers and the task of conducting
a military school is much simpler.”
During the last several years he
has had charge of the attendance
records and has been the assistant
instructor in the basic courses. His
willingness to cooperate, his atti
tude of fairness, and his fine char
acter in every way has won for
him the respect and admiration of
all who have known him.
Although he has no definite
plans for the future he expects to
work in the government river and
harbor survey under General
Brown with whom he served in
the Philippines.

Plans Shape Up;
Chairman Named
Bob Holmes Will Assisi
Helen Kaufman on
Active work on the junior class
picnic, the first picnic to be held
by a junior class for several years,
began in earnest yesterday when
Helen Kaufman, general chairman
for the affair, announced the ap
pointment of seven people to fill
the major chairmanships for the
affair. Sub-committee appoint
ments will be announced later, she '
The committee appointed was as
follows: Bob Holmes, assistant
chairman and features; Virginia
Grone, refreshments; John Pen
land, music; Barney Miller, public
ity; Marjorie Wilhelm, chaperones;
Ken Jette, refreshments; and Eliza
beth Kaser, speakers.
Due to the fact that it was
thought unadvisable to hold a pic
nic on a week-day so close to the
end of the term, the date has been
set as Saturday probably at Swirrij
mers' Delight, though no definite
place has as yet been selected, the
chairman announced.
Speaking of the picnic, Miss
Kaufman said: “This is the first
junior class picnic for several^
years, and is a tradition which we
are trying to revive. We are look
ing forward to an entirely success
ful affair.”
