There’s the Bell
TN a philosophical frame of mind the Emerald reflects on the
disturbing question: Which is more annoying, students com
ing into class one to ten minutes late, or professors who keep
their classes one to five minutes after the bell has rung ?
As students we had best say little about our aptitude for
appearing in classes late. We leave that to professors to dis
cuss and find means to eliminate it. We in turn assert the
right to discuss an aptitude of certain professors to hold classes
Paradoxically, students declare that the most annoying part
about being held in class until five minutes till the hour is the
difficulty they then have in reaching the next class on time..
Quizzes, locked doors, and other devices are used to encourage
promptness, and with a class in Villard dismissed several min
utes after the gang has rung one needs seven-league boots to
get to the barraefts, Oregon building, or the Education building
for another class.
For the sake of clearness we will divide the professors being
considered as disrespecters of lime into three classes:
1. Those who need the extra two or five minutes to cinch a
critical point. With this group we have no bone to pick. After
spending a good part of the hour to build up to his final point,
only to be interrupted by the bell, it is essential to the efficiency
of the course that the professor continue until he has success
fully gotten the point across.
2. Those who never cinch a point, but merely continue to
talk. We are carrying our little quarrel actively into this camp.
When a point has been made clear, and the bell rings, why con
tinue to talk? Ip classes taught by these professors the students
as a rule begin noisy preparations for their exit the moment
the bell rings and the professor is dimly heard, if it all.
3. Those who ignore the hour completely and bring up some
thing entirely new. These are particularly regarded with ex
treme impatience by the student. After all, the bell is a signal
for the end of the hour and the recitation or lecture. If nothing
advantageous is to be gained by continuing, the signal should
be recognized and \vhat the professor had to say can be more
effectively said at the beginning of the next class period.
Law School’s Stock up 35
/''vNCE again Oregon's superiority in the field of the profes
sions conies to the fore, with the law school showing a
35 per cent increase in enrollment so far over the same time
last year. In all, 126 students are registered as against 93
for the year 1930-31.
These are significant figures, deserving, we believe, of cam
pus scrutiny. The Oregon law school has always maintained
high standards, and each year graduates taking the state bar
examination are more successful in increasing numbers in gain
ing admission to the practice of law. Last summer, 19 of the
40-odd students taking the bar examination were Oregon grad
uates, and IS passed the rigid quiz. Oregon’s score may still
reach 100 per cent, for the work of the nineteenth University
graduate is being reconsidered by the examiners.
High standards of scholarship and achievement reflect the
character of the law school's faculty, one of the best to be
found. There is a balance between older men and younger, be
tween established ideas and youthful enthusiasm. Additions to
the teaching staff have been made wisely, and if no other factor
were contributing to the law school's success, its faculty would
certainly attract the increased enrollment.
Service and distinction in the state and nation is the third
contributing factor to the law school's place in (he sun. Through
the Oregon Law Review, a publication to which both faculty
and students contribute, and through the annual Hilton law
prize contests, which bring wide recognition to the winners,
the Oregon law school lias spread its influence.
With the increase in enrollment this year and with better
standards we look for an even brighter future for the law school,
its able dean, Wayne L. Morse, and its faculty.
Campus Life Steps to the Mike
TAST Monday afternoon the Emerald-of-tlie-Air began its
second year as a part of the activities sponsored by this
paper. Every week-day at 4:15 this student program is broad
cast over KOKH, and for 1 > minutes listeners-in are virtually
taken to the campus to witness a many sided university life.
Digests of student news and of student thought, programs of
student musical and dramatic talent, and timely discussions by
leading authorities to be found among the faculty should form
a series of broadcasts diverse enough to touch almost every
phase of campus work
The programs are meant primarily for a non-student audi
ence, although we think campus folk will find in them much
that is entertaining. In Eugene there are nearly 20,000 in
habitants, and Lane county rural sections claim close to 30,000
more. The Oregon campus is practically in the center of this
area, and in main respects it is the center ot Lane county
activity, certainly in the fields of education and sports, if in no
others. And it is with tin in mind that the Emerald sponsors
a daily radio program.
If wc are able to acquaint the people living about us with
our activities and what we are trying to accomplish, a more
friendly interest will be taken in our institution. The older
generation often liu a hazy conception of higher education. In
these trying times taxpayers must be reassured that higher
learning is really a good investment, and it is up to the young
men and women who profit directly to show them the facts.
The Emerald-of-tlie-Air r» attempting, in a small way, to carry
out that purpose.
Norris Studies With Famous
Physicists During Summer
\Conducts Research With
/. I. Rahi at Columbia
The privilege of studying with
two men who hold national repu
tation:; as physicists, was accord
ed Dr. Will V. Norris, associate
professo.- of physics and math.
Dr. E. U. Condon, professor of
physic:; at Princeton, and, accord
ing to Dr. Norris, probably the
greatest American authority on
quantum mechanics, was the Ore
gon man’s instructor in a course
entitled ‘‘Quantum Mechanics.”
“The Structure of Molecules,”
under the author of an authorita
tive and widely known scientific
text on molecular structure, Dr.
H. C. Urey, occupied most of the
time spent by Dr. Norris at the
Columbia university summer ses
Dr. Norris left the Oregon cam
pus in June and went to Pasadena,
California, where he attended the
Pacific coast division meeting of
the American Association for the
Advancement of Science. From
there he proceeded to his studies
on the Columbia campus.
Concurrently with his studies, Dr.
Norris participated in some re- j
search work with Dr. I. I. Habi,
a well known physicist. His work
was based on the quantum me
chanics method of obtaining the
difraction pattern resulting from
the passage of a stream of par
ticles through a solid material. The
work was theoretical and mathe
matical and had no immediate
practical value except the influ- j
ence it would have in the ultimate
solution of molecular structure.
Further research work to be
conducted on the Oregon campus
may result from Dr. Norris’ inves
tigations with Dr. Rabi, it was re
vealed last night. Dr. Norris in
timated that important results
might be obtained.
Dr. Norris spent about eight
weeks at Columbia after which
time he attended the national
meeting of the American Chemical
society. He acted in the capacity
of counsellor for Oregon, since
Professor Jones of O. S. C., the
regular counsellor, could not at
