No Cause More Worthy
\ N appeal to heads of all living organizations on the campus
was made Wednesday by the local unit of the National
Tuberculosis association, asking co-operation in the sale of
Christmas seals beginning December 1. Each year University
students are asked to aid in the relief work of the organization
by making small purchases of the Christmas seals. This year,
more than any other, the plea should not be ignored.
The severe economic conditions of .the present increase tre
mendously the problems of the tuberculosis associations. Not
only is there the task of getting money to carry on the work,
but there is the greatly increased danger of contracting tubercu
lar disease because of poor food and under-nourishment. One
of the services of Christmas seal money is hospital provision
where tuberculosis caseji may be given a chance to recover, but
vastly more important is the service rendered by clinics that
locate cases and aid in preventing the contracting and spreading
of the disease.
The value of the work being done by the tuberculosis asso
ciations need hardly be discussed. Everyone is familiar with tho
Christmas seal campaigns, so long carried on by the Red Cross
but now conducted by independently operated associations. The
progress being made in the fight against the great “white
plague” is noticeable to even the most casual observer. But it
is in times like the present that every energy must be turned
to holding the ground that has been won over a number of
No matter how greatly you may feel the effects of the de
pression, you cannot fail to appreciate the need of supporting
this great work, nor ignore the fact that by contributing a mite
you are adding to your own protection.
How Are You Today?
T^TEXT week is Health week throughout the nation.
Although we feel that this idea of having variops and
sundry “weeks” for everything from apples to applesauce, which
has made nearly every week of the fifty-two in the year set
aside for some such purpose, Health week deserves serious at
tention from not only students but citizens of the nation in
University people are often heard-to remark that such-and -
such a student is ruining his health through overwork. The
student who can do the standard of work of which the Phi Beta
Kappa key is a symbol is to be commended without reservation
only if his health has not been impaired. A brilliant mind in a
frail, weak body is of much less use to society than a good mind
in a healthy, vigorous body.
Another group of students, the “superkindergartners,” as one
writer calls them, who are not particularly Interested in studies,
often damage their health through other activities during their
college career. While this group is a somewhat doubtful asset
to society, it is well to have healthy "superkindergartners" than
weak ones who will be a still greater burden on society.
"Early to bed and early to rise,” with all its implications, is
applicable next week and tlie other fifty-one.

* * *
Believe it or not, Palooka, but
I have actually been up to the Fry
Melt house. Of course I had to
enlist the aid of Commander Byrd,
Hubert Wilkins and Scotty Allen,
but we made it. The Fry Melt
house is located somewhere south
of Brineteenth, and believed on
Jewniversity street (Lat. 64, Long.

up for me, whereas all the others
remained seated. I was introduced
into the intricacies of the Fry Melt
bull session, after which they
served fried and rhubarb, (The of

me out on the front stoop, they
paddled me soundly on the veranda
and left me lying there in a pool

REALM OF RESEARCH
By JIM BROOKE
While strolling through the cam
pus on a balmy night and looking
up at the moon through the
branches of the protective pines
which stand in eternal vigilance
over the silent pioneer, what stu
dent hasn’t glanced, with a feeling
half of scorn, half of pity, &t the
figures which can be seen through
the windows of McClure, industri-:
ously working over test tubes, j
totally oblivious of the seductive i
perfection of the outdoors? Or
again when the snow lies like a
ghostly pall over the ground, and
shrouding the trees in a white
mantle, who has not seen them
again poring over the results of
some inexplicable experiment and
wondered what ‘‘ailed them”?
And yet, these men who are
never seen except on their way to
and from the laboratory, whom
few on the campus know, and
whose efforts perhaps fewer yet
appreciate, have done even more
than our widely and justly her
alded football team to carry the
name of the University outside of
the state and yes, even the coun
In these musty, ill smelling
laboratories perhaps even now

be marked as a turning point in

Concentrating their forces in
one direction, the physics staff is

alloy that is as strong as steel,
yet lighter than aluminum. A
comparatively little known metal
is looked to for the source of this
material which would gladden the
heart of any structural steel or
Beryllium a light, silvery-like
metal considerably lighter than
aluminum, and according to some
authorities, existing in quite exten
sive deposits is the metal with
which the physics department
plans to concern itself this com
ing year. It is even rumored that
deposits of beryllium-bearing rock
may be found in Oregon. The only
fault that t^he industry may find
with beryllium is that it is quite
brittle and rather expensive. The
latter defect, the physics staff j
believes, will be remedied if a

The department is divided, prac
tically, into two groups, each
working on a different phase of
the same problem. One part in
vestigates the spectra of the al
loys and the other group ascer
tains the physical and electrical
properties of the alloys.
Up on the narrow balcony over
looking the general physics lab
oratory, R. E. Schreiber, a gradu
ate student, has installed a pecu
liar device which produces intense
heats. The small electric furnace
is but two feet high and one and
one-half feet thick. It has an
oven just large enough to enable
one to comfortably insert his
closed fist, yet it develops heats
of 3,000 degrees Centigrade. The
heat is produced by a carbon arc
flaming directly over a graphite
crucible filled with metal. It takes
as much energy to run this one
hour as it does to keep an ordin
ary 60-watt bulb burning 8 hours j
a night for 13nights.
The alloys produced in this fur- J
nace are to be carried a few steps I
over to the table at which Harry ]
Drill, graduate student, is working. !
There they will be tested for phy
sical properties how much they
will bend before breaking, their j
powers of conducting electric cur
rents, and whether or not, like I
lead, they may be moulded while

Of Aunt Eppie
Dear Aunt Eppie:
What is the big attraction over ,
in Springfield? It seems that ev- j
ery time I ask someone where he
is going, he invariably replies that
he is going over to Springfield to
the garden. Why do all of the
people go to Springfield, and what
is the garden?
It seems that you are asking
about a place called Springfield
(deduced by mental telepathy). I
imagine that most of the people
go over there to see some relative,
maybe a grandma, or an aunt, or
something. I believe the garden
you speak of is one of the famous
hot-house gardens that cover the
