Prof. Smith Writes Articles On Geology of Pacific Basin “Although many important com modities, some mineral and some agricultural, abound in the Pacific region, there is no indispensable raw material produced elsewhere, except tin; and in certain items, which are extremely necessary in an industrial age, the Pacific is relatively poorly supplied as com pared with the Atlantic,” writes Warren D. Smith, professor of geology and geography, in the first of a series of articles on "Ge ography of the Pacific Region,” for the November number of the Pacific Magazine. In his article, Professor Smith goes into the geographical condi tions of the Pacific region, delving into the origin of the Pacific ocean and giving some of the theories of its genesis. Then he takes up what he considers of much more importance—the geologic history of the basin. He says: "The Western Pacific certainly has changed profoundly during and since the Tertiary. There were undoubtedly greater land masses and connections in the western part, but for the existence of a great Pacific continent, which has foundered, the evidence is not yet at hand, and in the eastern Pa cific we may say that such an assumption is wholly unwar ranted.” The Pacific Magazine is an open forum for a candid expression of opinion of contributors on all sub jects pertaining to Pacific affairs. In concluding his first article, Professor Smith writes: "It seems pretty clear that, largely due to climate and topog raphy, there are four focal points about the Pacific where man's ac tivities will reach a high stage of development in the future, in fact has already done so, but where we may expect even greater intensity of action. In the southwestern portion there is New Zealand; in the northwest, Japan; in the northeast, the Pacific coast of the United States, and British Colum bia; and in the southeastern part, Central Chile.” Also into this appraisal, says Professor Smith, there enters the factor of character. “On the Pa cific coast we find the purest of the original American stock left in the country, supplemented by hardy English in British Columbia, Danes and Finns in Oregon and Washington, and Mexicans in Southern California.” For GIFTS OF DISTINCTION with a wide range of prices see the ALL AD IN Gift Shop Thanksgiving The most pleasing gift for the hostess or the folks at home—a box of Walora’s delicious Candies or Toasted Salted Nuts. “THEY ARE DIFFERENT” WALORA CANDIES 851 13th Avenue East WE WRAP FOR MAILING i TALKIE TOPICS ► McDonald—“Girls About Town,”j starring Kay Francis.

By RALPH MASON “Mad Genius” at Heilig People often doubt just what a genius is, but John Barrymore leaves no room for doubt, for he is a Mad Genius if there ever was one. Prevented from pursuing his passionate desire to dance, by a deformity, Tsarakov (Barrymore) adopts an agile street urchin (Don ald Cook), whom he teaches to perform in his ballet. So earnest is Tsarakov that he literally steeps Fedor with himself. Fedor be comes an outstanding dancer, al though he is exceedingly tempera mental. Tsarakov, always overbearing, flies into fits of rage when op posed, and if it were not for the timely appearance of the ever-cool Butterworth, the tension would at times be unbearable. Marian Marsh as Nora, a ballet dancer, and Fedor present the love element. Although Fedor seems to lack backbone in his dealings with Tsarakov, Nora makes up for it with her fine acting, in her charm ing role. The picture is filled with one tense situation after another, but the climax is reached in such a horrifying manner that even the most calloused theater-goer would not fail to shudder. Joe E. Brown, star of the com edy, “Local Boy Makes Good,” is coming to the Heilig tomorrow. * * * Kay Francis at McDonald A sprightly and saucy play, with well-balanced proportions of dra matic interest, is “Girls About Town,” the Paramount expose of big-time gold-digging among the haute monde of New York.

Tickets, which are selling at the flat rate of 75 cents each, are obtainable at any box-office. * * • Dime Nite at Colonial With two leading ladies of prom inence, and a cast that looks like the “Who’s Who in Hollywood," John Gilbert takes possession of the Colonial screen today in “Gen tlemen’s Fate.” The picture is based on a thrilling romance by Ursula Parrott, author of “Ex Wife,” and presents Anita Page and Leila Hyams in contrasting roles opposite the dashing Gilbert. “Huckleberry F i n n,” starring Jackie Coogan, Junior Durkin, and Mitzie Green, is showing at the Colonial Wednesday and Thursday in conjunction with a special holi day stage show. Double Bill at State Two exceptional feature pictures have been selected for the regular Tuesday and Wednesday double bill at the State.

No snow? Already a freshman is disillu sioned. At least, this was the at titude of Mary Ella Homung, who hails from the land of eternal sun shine and blossoms--Hawaii, when informed that it might not snow in spite of the frosty weather. "This white stuff on the ground looks so funny," Mary Ella ex claimed upon noticing the white frost and added, “I can hardly wait until we have our first snow fall; I am awfully anxious to see what it is like.” Disappointment indeed, crossed the co-ed’s face when told that it doesn’t always snow here and that it rains instead. "But I don’t like those nasty, bitter cold rains. You can't do any thing but shiver. It'll have to snow." And if Mary Ella writes her an ual letter to Santa, she will prob ably include a postscript saying, “and don’t forget the snow.” Yocom To Receive Tests For Pre-Medic Students The biology department is ex pecting to receive copies of medi cal aptitude tests from Washing ton, D. C., this week, according to Professor Harry B. Yocom, dean of biology. These tests, Dr. Yocom stated, will be given to pre-medic students here on Friday, December 11. From the results of the tests, students entering medical schools will be placed in aptitude classes. Over 90 per cent of the medical schools in the United States use these tests for entrance require ments, Dr. Yocom said, and last year, when they were first given, 9,220 students took them. Among these were 64 from the University of Oregon. The tests are given all over the country on the same day and at the same time. A fee of $1 is charged. ■ . — --- --- -- . — f Sam Gates and His Turnip Patch Depicted by Thacher Professor W. F. G. Thacher, of the University faculty, read a short story, “A Source of Irritation,” by Aumonier, at the Phi Delta Theta house Sunday afternoon. This is the story of old Sam Gates, an English farmer, who was out hoeing turnips one morning in war times when an enemy airplane swooped down into his neighbor’s field. Sam rushes madly over to tell the trespasser that he is ruin ing the turnips, and that gentle man climbs out and covers old Sam with his gun. Then the German, as he turns out to be, is struck by Gates’ resemblance to one of their prominent spies so he kidnaps him and takes him back to the scene of action in his airplane. After their arrival, the German officers conjure a horrible and bloody plan whereby old Sam is to be taken out and shot on the battlefield so that the English will believe that the real spy is dead, permitting him to work unmolest ed. At the opportune moment, the man who is to shoot Gates is felled by a shell, and Sam is knocked un conscious. Next the old English farmer wakes up in a British camp and there they believe that they have Paul, the German spy. After con siderable difficulty, Sam proves his innocence and tells them that he has learned of the whereabouts of Paul, the real spy. Paul is lo Come in and Gas with Us before going home for Thanksgiving. VARSITY Service Station 13th and Jlilyard cated and captured, and Sam gets the promise of big things. Sam is returned by an English dispatch plane in time to finish hoeing the row of turnips that he had started that morning at 7:30. Although Aumonier has created a practically impossible plot with a slow start, he has turned out a very readable story. Sam Gaes is so thoroughly enjoyable because | he is so obviously his own type and ; does not deviate for one single in stant from the stereotyped Eng lish farmer of limited intelligence and training. “A Source of Irritation” is dif ferent from most short stones m that it is not the conventional highly romanticized story of some country bumpkin with a.flair for pretty women, or something equal ly weak—considered from a plot standpoint. The most effective and certainly the most breath-tak ing scene in the book is the near shooting of Sam Gates. ALLEN, KAE RETURN Dean Eric W. Allen, school of journalism, and Arne G.
