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.”

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.
The cast is headed by Kay Fran
cis, Lilyan Tashman Who share
the title role—Joel McCrea, Eu
gene Pallette and Allan Dinehart.
Others are Lucile Webster Glea
son, Anderson Lawler, and George
Barbier.
To help unemployment, local
theatres are sponsoring a com
bined midnite performance which
is to be held at the Fox McDonald
Joe E. Brown and Dorothy Lee,
who are coming to the Heilig to
morrow in “Local Boy Makes
Good.”
at 11:15 Wednesday night. Each

of which are to be turned over to
the local Red Cross. 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.

Girl from Sunny
Islands Expects
Snowfall Hourly
What! 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.

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

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.
