To The Orient
liTORE valuable than any amount of reading, than any number
of hours spent in doubtfully beneficial campus activities, or
in that two-hour class taken because you had only 13 hours and
needed 15- more valuable, in fact, than any one thing you could
get out of a year at the University, is a trip to the Orient, with
its opportunity to observe and study the problems and conditions
of peoples entirely and completely different from ourselves.
Just such an experience is to be the prize in the Murray War
ner essay contest on international relations. Believing that per
sonal contacts with people of different nations and races are the
most effective way to bring about mutual sympathy, Mrs. Murray
Warner, sponsor of the contest, last year substituted the journey
to China and Japan for a cash prize. Announcement of the con
test with its unusually appealing award has just been made for
The generosity and very sincere interest which Mrs. Warner
has in promoting friendship with the Oriental nations has made
it possible that the prizes offered winners in the contest are of
sufficient valuer to cause students to think very seriously about
entering the contest. It is not every day that one has a chance
to compete for a trip to the Orient not every day, and for most
of us not more than once in a lifetime. Students really qualified
to write such an essay as the contest calls for would do well to
consider doing so seriously, for, aside from the mere training
which would be gained, the possibility of spending next summer
abroad is a goal which should and undoubtedly does entice every
one of us who has an ounce of adventurous blood in us.
Quest of adventure, however, is not what Mrs. Warner and
those interested in the contest arc chiefly concerned with. They
are not anxious to provide a glorious vacation full of exciting
experiences for some fortunate college student. To show that
they mean business, a provision in the contest rules states that
students shall have had some preparation in anthropology, art,
economics, history, international relations, geography, or Far
Eastern politics before submitting essays. Mrs. Warner wants
to send to the Far East a college student who knows and under
stands a little about the people he will be meeting, in order that
he may be more efficient in his study and appreciation of them.
She hopes to get a good return on her investment in the form of
increased interest and understanding on the part of peoples of
the Orient and those of the United States, and she expects the
student she sends to Japan and China to do his part in furthering
this cause of internationalism.
And so we say, if you have the prerequisites for entering the
Murray Warner contest, start now and make a good job of it,
fpr surely there are few rewards for a student’s efforts greater
than the summer in the Orient offered the writer of the prize
Oh For a Horse
'T"'HE story of the Alaskan youth who traveled the 1700 miles
■*" from Sitka in a 16-foot dory in order to attend school at the
University of Oregon rather puts to shame the tales of our grand
fathers who boasted of traveling 20 miles for an education in the
good old days.
Of course there is a difference. The Alaskan boy is in search
of adventure as well as education. He contemplates further jour
neys even more glamorous and exciting. Not so our grandfathers.
School for them was serious business. Getting an education neces
sitated putting up with many hardships that lacked any romance
We want to go to school in a 16-foot dory. An education is
enhanced by’such an experience. Unfortunately, not all of us can
make such interesting journeys. But we can adventure in books
and the lives of men. Don Quixote was no fool. People with
imagination find life less drab and ordinary a voyage through
the reasonably safe Alaskan inside passage is momentous enough
an occasion to merit life-long memories. Richard Halliburton has
nothing on the young man from Alaska who adventures in a 16
Someday we, too, are going to start out in a boat of our own.
And the beauties i f Gastineau channel and Chatanr Straits will
dim in comparison with what we find. But though we have to
wait until school is over before we can begin these adventures of
our own, we still have a brotherly feeling toward the man who
did not forget his Alaskan heritage.
dlEY gave a new thrill. Not Rudy Vallee and a nationally
advertised brand of cigarettes this time, but the Oregon band.
72 strong, attired for once in natty uniforms and making an ap
pearance at the rally Thursday night worthy of the University
It has been a long struggle to build up Oregon’s band. Each
year there have been uniforms, but never such outfits as these
in the. West Point style. We look back now on the olive drab
army uniforms of last year ami the poor-appearing lemon-yellow
and green outfits of the year before with a pardoning smile, and
then turn to view the band in its new and deserved splendor with
a feeling of pride.
John 11. Stehn, band director, is the man probably most directly
responsible for the excellence of Oregon's band, both in music
and appearance. He has worked hard and built up an organiza
tion of well-chosen men. Then there's Hugh Rosson, graduate
manager, who has done all in Ids power to put the baud away
ahead of similar groups in other universities ami colleges. And
let s not forget those classes of the past few years who have
turned generous parts of their funds into the band uniform total.
We nominate them all lor our special hall of fame.
Here comes ’1 HE band!
Here Comes The Band!

Binford Tours Europe with
Representatives, of Y. W. C.A.
Partaking of a spoonful of
honey and a glass of water, as
all other travelers do at one of
the oldest monastaries in Europe
located near Sofia, Bulgaria, was
one of the experiences of Helen
Binford, who toured Europe with
seven other girls this summer
under the sponsorship of the Y. W.
C. A. student council.
Whether they performed the
ceremony right, these American
students judged by watching other
travelers, for the monk spoke only
In London Miss Binford attended
the reception of the Prince of
Wales. “All eight of us were pre
sented to the prince. He smiled
but we don't know which one he
meant it for, so no one could claim
to be the lucky one," she said.
In the Y. W. C. A. group there
were representatives from Bryn
Mawr, University of Nebraska,
University of Colorado, Mary
Baldwin college in Virginia, Wash
ington State college, and two from
the University of California be

Their itinerary took them to
Budapest, Hungary. Here their
rooms overlooked the Danube.
"We waited for a serenade, but
the men didn't always favor us

southern European country, when
we sunned ourselves on the beach

In Geneva. Switzerland the Y.

studied the customs, arts, econ

This enabled them to talk intelli

country and the students. The way

countries look to the United States

countries are so jumbled that
some will have to sacrifice in
order to straighten out the econ
omic and political situations of all,
she believes after hearing the opin
ions of both leaders and students.

Helen Binford attended the Mount
