ON TO PORTLAND! BEAT THE VANDALS! VOLUME XXXIII UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1931 NUMBER 2 Dad’sDayDate Changed From Homecoming October 24 New Time For Celebration Oregon Frosh, OSC Rooks To Clash in Night Football Game “Dad’s Day,” annual campus celebration in honor of fathers of University of Oregon students, will be held on Saturday, October 24, instead of November 14, as originally scheduled, it was an nounced last night by student as sociation leaders. The change in dates was made to avoid having the “Dad’s Day” conflict with the annual homecom ing when the campus will be crowded with returning alumni for the Oregon-Oregon State football classic. As November 14 will also be Oregon State’s homecoming date, the executive association of the Oregon Dads was given fur ther reason for changing the time of the event. Frosh, Rooks To Play Oregon freshmen and O. S. C. Rooks will clash on Hayward field in a night football game October 24 for the pleasure of the Dads who will be guests of the campus. The Oregon Dads association first selected the homecoming date for their celebration, it was learned from O. Laurgaard, Port land city engineer and president of the Dads, because of the Web foot-Beaver varsity game on that day. When it was pointed out that students here would be too busy with homecoming preparations, building of welcoming signs, dec orating the campus, and planning a noise parade, “O” bonfire on Skinner’s butte, and rally dance to give the Dads proper entertain ment and welcome, the association gladly voted the change in dates. President Hall in Favor “Dad’s Day is planned to give fathers of Oregon students a chance to see their children on the campus under normal conditions,” President Hall said last night. “Homecoming would be too busy a week-end to give the Dads the greeting due them.” A students Dad’s Day directo rate is expected to be announced soon. New System of Physical Education Is Planned A closer contact with the sport he enjoys most and of which he knows least, is the object of the reorganized system of physical education inaugurated last Novem ber by Paul R. Washke, director of the men's gym. According to Mr. Washke, for mer assistant professor of physical education and director of intra mural sports at the University of Michigan, the change has been marked by unusual success. It is now possible for all men to study the form of recreation that is best suited to them, while formerly only those who passed the physical ability tests could participate in certain branches of athletics. Classes to Meet Today as Stated Let Out Saturday gPIKING campus rumors to the contrary, Earl M. Pal lett, registrar, yesterday an nounced that all University classes would meet today as scheduled. With the special student rally train 1 e a ving downtown at 3:45 this after noon, it was campus talk yes terday that 3 and 4 o’clock classes would be excused today, but University pronouncement says otherwise. All Saturday classes will be dismissed as previously an nounced, to allow students to attend the Oregon-Idaho game in Portland, Mr. Pallett said. Study by Physics Staff to be Made Of Rarer Earths Research on Beryllium; Other Little - known Elements Stressed With the entire physics staff co operating in an intensive inquiry into the nature of beryllium and the rarer earths, the department of physics faces what may result in one of the most productive years in its existence, according to Dr. A. E. Caswell, professor of physics. Deady hall has been rewired and transformers with greater capaci ties have been installed to accom modate the electric furnaces which are to be used in the experiment. Although the research may ap I pear to be a strictly departmental project, it is in reality a number of individual researches that over lap each other, it was revealed yesterday. Dr. Caswell and Dr. Will V. Norris, associate professor of physics and mathematics, have for some time contemplated an in quiry into the nature of beryllium, a hard silver white metal, and the rarer earths, elements about which comparatively little is known. The installation of the electric furnaces will afford them this year the op portunity to undertake their work. H. J. Unger, teaching fellow in physics, will continue this year the work he started last. He plans to concern himself chiefly with spectrum analysis and a search for the infra-red atomic spectrum of zinc and cadmium. The experi ments of Mr. Unger are being con tinued at the suggestion of Dr. E. D. McAlister, former professor of physics here and now connected in a research capacity with the Smithsonian institute at Washing ton, D. C. Mr. Unger conducted a number of experiments last year that attracted the attention of the former Oregon faculty member. His work on spectrum analysis will tie up with the other research beryllium. Harry T. Drill, on years leave of absence as instructor in physics at the Oregon State college, plans to take part in the beryllium re search. He and Dr. Caswell will work together on the electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties of beryllium. Dr. Norris, formerly connected ! with the Colorado School of Mines, (Continued on Page Two) Alaska Student Travels by Water, Sitka to Oregon Traveling 1,700 miles in a 16 foot fisherman’s dory to attend school at the University of Oregon is the unique experience of Robert Dearmond, Alaska youth. Dear mond set out from Sitka, his home town, last June 23 with Eugene as his goal. In the boat with him he carried a tent, gasoline stove, and provisions and water to last for a period of three weeks. “I had good weather nearly all 1 of the way,” said Dearmond. “We had a wonderful summer. I ran into a few light squalls but no bad storms. Most of the trip was made through inside passages but ■X had about 300 miles of open Jocean travel around Baranoff Is land and outside of Prince of Wales Island.” At night Dearmond usually pitched his tent on the beach, al . though many times he sailed all night if the wind was extremely favorable. “From Sitka I went to «• Craig, Ketchikan, then on down I to Prince Rupert, Vancouver, Bel lingham, and then Tacoma, arriv ing there September 10,” he said. “At Prince Rupert I picked up an English companion, Roger Ligh toller, whom I had with me as far as Vancouver.” At Tacoma, Dear mond abandoned his faithful water craft and made the trip to Eugene by land. Bob is registered at the Univer sity as a special student, preparing himself for a career of writing. For the last three years he has been engaged in various newspaper work in Alaska. During the last winter Dearmond edited “The Stroller’s Weekly,” a Juneau news paper of over 2,000 circulation. This is Bob’s first term on the [ Eugene campus, but he has taken up correspondence work from the University and has attended the College of Alaska. “I saw many brown bear, deer, seals, and porcupine on my trip (Continued on Page Three) Trip to Orient Warner Essay Major Award Journey Valued at $500 Offered Student Contestants Have 6 Months To Write Papers, Says Chairman Mez A trip to the colorful Orient, with a chance to study the inter esting economic, racial and social problems there, is the experience which next summer awaits some student enrolled in the University. The trip, at an estimated cost of $500, will be the first prize in the annual Murray Warner essay con test on international relations, it is announced here by Dr. John R. Mez, professor of economics, who is chairman of the contest com mittee. Papers are due April 1, 1932. New Ruling Made Only those students will be al lowed to compete who have taken, or who are taking at least one course in anthropology, art, econ omics, history, international rela tions, geography, or politics of the Far East, Dr. Mez said. This is a new ruling in the contest and is announced at this time in order to give entering students an op portunity to enroll in such a course. Besides the trip, which is one of the most substantial prizes given in any such contest in the country, there will be a second prize of $50 in the first division which is for students who are citizens of the United States. There will be a first prize of $100, and a second of $50 in the second division, which is for students from the Philippines and foreign nmintries. National Same Won The essay contest, which is sponsored by Mrs. Murray Warner, director of the Oriental Art mu seum here, for the purpose of fos tering better relations between the United States and the Orient, has been carried on for a number of years so successfully that it has attracted national attention. Up until last year only cash prizes were offered, but those in charge believe that an understand ing between the Orient can be better fostered by first hand con tacts. Though the award was made last year, the student was unable to accept, so this year will be the first time an Oregon stu dent will have the opportunity of making the journey. Emerald Offers Houses Trophy for Subscribers In order to stimulate the sub scription to the Emerald by Ore gon parents, Cliff Lord, circula tion manager, states that a per manent trophy will be given to the house that secures the largest number of these subscriptions. A chairman will be appointed in each house and work will start immediately. One trophy will be awarded to the men’s house with the highest number, and another to the women’s house. These tro phies will become permanent pos sessions of the house, according to Lord. The price of the Emerald is $1 a term, with a reduction of 50 cents if the paper is carried the entire year, making the annual subscription $2.50. All students are urged to have their parents subscribe to the Em erald in order that they may be come acquainted with Oregon cus toms and student life. Etchings Now at Co-op Chosen by Coggeshall Original etchings from Europe, chosen by Reginald Coggeshall, professor of journalism here last year, who traveled on the conti nent last summer, are being re ceived by the University Co-op, which has placed them on their book balcony. Mr. Coggeshall is an amateur enthusiast and critic of etchings. At Paris, Budapest, Prague, and Munich he has cooperated with M. F. McClain, manager of the Co op, in securing a number of these, together with prints of European pictures, which the store has also | received. Grand Old Man Greets Frosli From Bed During Illness o Message of Welcome Given To Yearling Class By Straub For 52 years, Dean Straub, “The Grand Old Man of Oregon,” never failed to greet each fresh man class at the annual welcome assembly. A year ago, for the first time, he was unable to talk to his “boys and girls” because of ill i ness. This year, again, he was confined in his home and was un able to greet the freshmen, but when visited in his home yester day, Dean Straub gave the follow ing message to the Emerald: “This is the second freshman class meeting that I have missed in 54 years. One of the things that affects me most is this mis I fall. Mimnaugh Greet Frosh at First Assembly Yearlings Guided by Talks On Ambition and Active Life McArthur court played host to another freshman class yesterday at 11, as Oregon extended her of ficial welcome through talks by President Hall and Brian Mim naugh, student body prexy, on the forthcoming problems of student life. Conducted by John Stehn, the University band presented several selections, followed by the intro duction of the speakers by Dean Gilbert. Mimnaugh in a short, peppy address touched upon the relationship of the scholastic and social ends of college life and the necessity for keeping a proper balance between them at all times. ^resident Jtian stressed me as sumption of the responsibilities of a university student and chal lenged the incoming freshman to attack the problems of the new life with all the fervor and energy of the mountain-climber or ex plorer. He pointed out that the three incontestable qualities of a successful man are insatiable curi osity, the longing *for hardships, and divine discontent. His talk was illustrated by a number of amusing anecdotes from his experi ence as a college professor and president. Dean Gilbert announced that the A. W. S. urged every woman at tending the Idaho-Oregon . game wear a yellow “mum,” and Mr. Gilbert personally advised every one who possibly could make it to be at Portland for the game, Sat urday. With the singing of “Mighty Oregon” by the student body, the meeting was concluded. Health Service Boasts New Faculty This Year Students who make use of the University health service will be greeted by three new faces on the health staff this year, according to Dr. Fred N. Miller of that de partment. Dr. Sante Camparoli of Portland replaces Dr. Phy, who has gone to Hot Lake, Oregon, to operate a sanatorium, and Dr. Marian Hayes has taken the place of Dr. Mildred ; Mumby, who returned to Portland | to continue her work as a skin \ specialist. Both Dr. Camparoli and Dr. Hayes are graduates of the U. of O. medical school. The place left vacant in the in firmary by Miss Helen Fleming, | who went to Astoria to accept a I nursing position was filled by Miss Grace Robertson of Eugene. Memorial Service Held . For Sorority President A memorial service was held j this week at the Kappa Delta j holise in honor of Marie Daly, president of the sorority last term. ! Miss Daly died this summer in New Orleans, Louisiana, after an appendicitis operation. Miss Daly was a sophomore major in art. She was chosen by her sorority as a delegate to the Kappa Delta national convention held in July in Washington, D. C., and it was while she was returning from the convention by way of New Orleans that she was at tacked by appendicitis, i sing the freshman in my daily travels up and down. One great joy of my life was to meet these boys and girls on the street and shake hands with them and wisli them luck for the coming year and to offer them my services if dif ficulties arose which they might not be able to solve. Now this gTeat pleasure is denied me, and as I lie on my couch and see the green-capped boys go by all I can do is to offer a short prayer that God may guide and keep them in the right path. “I ask every freshman boy and girl to be sure to speak to me when they meet me on the street so that I will feel that I am not entirely forgotten. Sincerely yours, The friend of the freshman class, John Straub.” Students * Solve Buying Problem By Cooperation Co-op Store Does Third of Year’s Business by First Week Many students are unaware of the fact that through the student body organization and its Co-op store, they are solving many of their first-week textbook and buy ing problems. There are many also who are unaware that it is this store that does one-third of its business in one week at the opening of school, and yet serves University students efficiently on the cooperative basis during the entire 52 weeks of the year. Extra Help Used we put on extra neip two weeks prior to the opening of the fall term," states M. F. McClain, manager, “and when registration and rush week begin we are ready for the many new and returning students. For several days 20 extra employees, all Btudents, are on hand, and some years we have handled as much as one-tenth of our business during the first day of school. “This year the early expenses of the students have varied some what in distribution and they have bought ‘on their second wind’ in many cases, and instead of the usual first-day rush, the store is having continued ‘big d a y s’ throughout the first week.” Fewer Books Added This year fewer new titles have been added to the store’s textbook line than formerly, since there were fewer changes by University professors, states the manager. The store purchased fully as many secondhand books last spring as they did previously, but it was no ticeable, said Mr. McClain, that they were sold much quicker than usual this fall. “We have an U-year record of the number of books, both new and secondhand, sold to students in every course taught in the Uni versity,” he continued. “The store bases its purchases on the previous year’s sale, how ever, and it is the variation of in dividual course registrations that sometimes cause a shortage of (Continued on Page Two) Dilapidated Bench Disposed of in Summer Cleanup ^XOTHER of those favorite “parking” places for stu dents has disappeared from the campus never to return. It was the green bench that adorned the south side of Thirteenth street near the entrance to the parking space by Johnson hail. “It went to the fire,” was the comment of George E. M. York, superintendent of build ings and grounds. During the summer a general cleanup of the campus was made and the bench being dilapidated was hauled off and burned. The bench was a re plica of the senior bench and was used in a junior week-end play several years ago. When i. rought back from the theatre, it was put off opposite the Tib lary as a convenient “setting” place. J Open House to Be Settled by Student Group Bunion Derby Question To be Argued Tuesday October 17 Tentative Date For All-campus Affair; Opinion Divided Seeking a solution to the Open House question, a committee of student leaders will meet Tuesday afternoon with Mrs. Hazel Pruts man Schwering, dean of women, and Virgil D. Earl, dean of men, Mrs. Schwering announced yester day. At the conference will be Brian Mimnaugh, president of the asso ciated students; Ann Baum, presi dent of the A. W. S.; Janice Hedges, president of heads of houses; Paul Bale, Cliff Beckett, and Con Hammond, representing the interfraternity council; Willis Duniway, editor of the Emerald; Dean Schwering and Dean Earl. Tentative Date Set Open House, annual all-campus get-acquainted night, during which each fraternity, men’s dormitory unit, and men’s club visits each sorority and women’s dormitory, has tentatively been scheduled on the fall term social calendar for Saturday night, October 17. Foot ball games in Portland this week end, and in Seattle the following Saturday made an earlier date im possible. Campus opinion on the feasibil ity of holding Open House is about evenly divided, student observers say. The interfraternity council, made up of presidents of the 18 men’s Greek-letter living organiza tions on the campus, has twice voted aeainst the annual “bunion derby.” The first negative vote was polled at a meeting the end of spring term, and the second Monday of this week. No Action by Women Heads of houses organization, comprising presidents of all sorori ties on the campus, has not yet announced action on the question. If the picked committee of seven students who will meet with the deans of men and women Tues day does not vote to hold Open House in the traditional manner or does not abolish it entirely, sev eral new plans as yet unpublished are expected to be submitted for the affair. Men in several fraternity houses were reported last night to be planning petitions to the dean of women in favor of Open House.' Oregon Colors Loaned For Display in Portland Co-op Store to Make Lemon and Green Evident Portland would be painted lemon and green for the Oregon-Idaho game Saturday if the University Co-op had its way. In the interest of advertising Oregon as much as possible the student-owned store is cooperating with the Portland Chamber of Commerce and city stores by loan ing its huge stock of colorful felt goods for decoration purposes in the windows of Portland this week-end. University students will feel very much at home in view of school pennants, bright Oregon 1 robes and ^reen and lemon pillows that will be added to the decora tions greeting football enthusiasts when they witness the Idaho in vasion. "It is very probable that the Oregon colors will be carried to 1 Seattle October 10 in the same manner,” said M. F. McClain yes terday. Student baggage will carry the home colors also if loyal Oregon ians take advantage of the Coop’s offer of two Oregon stickers with every student ticket to the Idaho game. , Accountants’ Journal Accepts Article by Kelly Professor C. L. Kelly, of the school of business administration has had an article accepted by the Journal of Accountancy. Professor Kelley’s article is to be published within the next month or two and is on the subject of privileged | communication for accountants. Today Last Day To Buy Tickets For Idaho Game fpODAY is the last chance for students to obtain tickets for the Oregon-Idaho game to be played in Portland tomor row. No student tickets will be on sale in Portland, accord ing to Doc Robnett, assistant graduate manager, so those who plan to attend the game must get tickets here today. The price has been reduced this year to 50 cents, and all holders of student body cards may obtain them at this price at the Co-op. Card Announces Coming Election For YWCA at Tea Nominees Are Chosen for Frosh Commission Heads Election of Frosh Commission officers will be held next Thurs day, was announced by Carolyn Card, president, at a tea served to more than 200 freshman girls at the Y. W. C. A. yesterday. The purpose of Frosh Commis sion and the opportunities for girls interested in it were explained by Miss Card. Margaret Edmunson, new Y. W. C. A. secretary, spoke on the relationship of Frosh Com mission to the Y. W. C. A., and Helen Chaney, president of the Y. W. C. A., explained the opportuni ties for girls in Y. W. C. A. work. Five girls were chosen by the Frosh Commission executive com mittee for the nominating com mittee for the new officers: Char lotte Eld ridge, Louise Thomas, Dorothy Parks, Gerry McGuilothy, and Eleanor Wharton. These girls will meet at the Y. W. C. A, bun galow at 4 p. m. Mohday. The nominees will be introduced to all the freshman girls at a' short business meeting next Wed nesday which will be follQwed by the annual Nit and Wit party. Foreign Trade Leader At Washington, D. C. Authority in Field Secures Government Position Harry C. Hawkins, former pro fessor of foreign trade at the Uni versity of Oregon, is now principal economic advisor in the depart ment of state at Washington, D. C. Mr. Hawkins was an outstand ing authority in his field on the Pacific coast and held a position in the University for a year. Among the outstanding achieve ments of Mr. Hawkins while a pro fessor at the University was the formation of the foreign trade ad visory board to work in coopera tion with the University, and the development of foreign trade courses at the school of business administration. Mr. Hawkins goes to Washing ton to work in the treaty division of the department of state and will have much to do with the commer cial treaties with foreign countries. He worked in this department pre vious to his University work. Football Fans Invade Rose City Tonight Matthews Plans Big Pep Rally for Friday Noise Parade, Serpentine To Inspire Old Oregon Spirit Inspired by a determination to outdo the rally of a week ago staged by our northern neighbors, the Oregon rally committee, head ed by Carson Matthews has out lined a program of attack that will increase the sale of ear mufflers in Portland a hundred per cent, and which needs only the united cooperation of the en tire student body to make it un precedented in the annals of Port land college rallies. Committed To Handle Luggage Beginning at the Eugene down town Southern Pacific depot at 3:45 when the train leaves, a plan of action has been made which needs only lung power to make it successful. Students will not be burdened with baggage, in fact they will not be allowed on the train with any. A special com mittee has been appointed to han dle all luggage, which will be taken at the depot platform and returned to owners at the comple tion of the rally at a destination to be announced on board train. To facilitate checking, students are urged to come to the depot early. Arriving at the Union depot at around 7:30, the fans will disem bark to be met by the Portland J. C. of C. and students who have journeyed up in cars. Green and yellow flares and a noise parade of ten floats will precede the ser pentine rally as far as the Para mount theatre, where an outdoor pep program will take place. In addition to student yells, .the Ore gon band will play and members of the Portland J. C. of C. will talk. After dispersing, luggage will be returned, and Oregon students can "cut. loose" on Broadway. As rooters’ lids will be required to gain entrance to Multnomah field, Carson Matthews requested that they be worn Friday night during the rally—and that every student “gargles well before turning out.” Rally on Saturday Rallying on Saturday will com mence at 12 o’clock noon, in front of the Imperial hotel. A serpen tine will be led to the ticket of fice, and will progress from there to the stadium. Students without rooters’ lids will not be admitted to the field, and no students will be admitted until everyone in the rally has passed the gate. Rooters will sit on the east side of the field and will be led in cheering by Kelsey Slocum and his four assistants, Ed Wells, Ed Schweiker, Freeman Young, and Sheldon Dunning. The student body has been requested to turn out in full force to make this the most colorful, spirited rally of the season. Carson Matthews as head of the rally committee for this year will be assisted by Hal Short: Esther (Continued on Page Three) New Art Instructor Feels at Home on University Campus “Eugene anil its surroundings are beautiful. I can most truth fully say that never have I felt more at home than on the Ore gon campus,” says Mr. Lance Hart, new instructor in the school of architecture and allied arts. Mr. Hart has interesting studio in the art buildings and is most enthusi astic about the work in the art school here. He feels that Eugene and its vicinity hold something of European tranquility seldom found in this country, where there is so much big industry and commerce. Though Mr. Hart reveals nothing of a startling nature about his childhood or no very alarmingly early aptitude toward drawing, his desire to paint must have been very strong. It was by waiting on tables, picking up pieces of com mercial art work here and there, and doing theatre and stage scen ery, that he put himself through the Chicago Art institute, where he had his first art education. Here he was president of the art stu dents’ league and developed an in terest in the decorative side of drawing and painting. For the pur pose of improvement in this line of work he turned seaman and sailed on a freight steamer from Portland, Oregon, through the channel to Glasgow and across country to Stockholm, Sweden, where he studied mural painting for two years. Mr. Hart is, however, a native of the Northwest, having been born in Grays Harbor, Washington. He lived for some time during the war in Kentucky with a field artil lery group but was never sent to France for active service. Mr. Hart has been in Portland for some time previous to coming oi\ the campus and has exhibited in the arts and crafts studio on Barnes road. He also did the mural designing in the new Town club in Portland.
