Annual Krazy
Kopy Krawl To
Be January 16
Alpha Delta Sigma Plans
Novelty Danee
Samples Will Be Presented
As Traditional
r -
Sensing what they believe to be
a dearth of novelty, gaiety, and
individuality in earlier all-campus
dances, the members of Alpha
Delta Sigma, advertising society,
are laying the foundation for one
of the most momentous independ
ent parties ever offered to the stu
dents here. The date for the Krazy
Kopy Krawl has been tentatively
set for Saturday evening, January
16. Bob Holmes is chairman of
the affair.
Harry Schenk, president of the
organization, said yesterday that
difficulty was being met in the
choice of ballroom. Cocoanut
Grove, Willamette Park Tavern,
and Midway are all under consid
eration, but a decision has not yet
been reached as to which would
be most suitable for the evening.
Originality Stressed
Originality looms with the an
nouncement that the walls of
whatever room may be chosen will
be plastered with posters arranged
in new and unequaled combina
t tions. Decorations will shield bare
walls, and worn-out features of
trios, tap dancers, and soloists will
yield to something entirely new in
amusement, it is promised. For
music a unit of eight or more men
all primed to give the crowd stim
ulating rhythm is being arranged
New Favors Slated
The traditional favors for the
evening are being planned by
Larry Jackson, business manager
of the Emerald. He promises not
to overstock the men with tooth
paste or shaving lotion, but to
present something entirely new.
John Painton, business manager
for the dance, announced that no
novelty would be sacrificed for the
sake of the receipts. B,oger Bailey
is in charge of the ticket sale.
Dick Goebel keeps the main
scheme of decoration a secret.
Francis Mullins announces a line
on some unheard-of features. Hal
Short will entertain the patrons.
Barney Miller and Vint Hall
r have laid plans for advertising the
advertising dance. A. novel parade,
surprise messages from the air
above the campus, sign boards,
posters, and paid advertising will
• appear early next term.

Pan Xenia To Show Films
Treating Foreign Travel
Pictures Will Be Supplementary
To Course of Study
In order to promote interest in
foreign trade on the Oregon cam
pus, and as supplement to the
course of study provided here in
that field, Pan Xenia, international
foreign trade honorary, will bring
a series of motion picture films
to the campus this year. These
films will be shown not only to
the members and guests of Pan
Xenia, according to Orville Gar
rett, president, but to all those
who are interested.
The first of the pictures, which
will be presented in the near fu
ture, is a product of the General
Steamship company entitled,
“Across the Seas.” The three
reels of film contain scenes illus
trating not only life across the
seas, together with modern scenes
of transportation, but also giving
some accurate and impressive pic
tures of American vessels in the
days of the “clipper ship.” “Across
the Seas” will be entertaining and
beneficial to anyone who is inter
ested in travel or the field of for
eign trade, Garrett declares.
Pan Xenia will be able to secure
the films through the courtesy of
members of the Portland advisory
board and several prominent for
eign trade officials in Portland.

Saturday, December 19, has been
chosen as the date for the get-to
gether dinner to be held in Port
land by alumni and present local
members of Phi Delta Phi, nation
al law honorary.
The banquet will be held by the
Oregon chapter and its alumni as
an outgrowth of the recent dinner

Delay To Effect Saving
Rumored on Campus
Registration To Commence
Monday After New
Year as Planned
Emphatically quashing the ru
mor that in an effort to save mon
ey, the University would not open
winter quarter until January 11,
James H. Gilbert, dean of the col
lege of literature, science and arts,
vigorously denied the possibility of
such action and stated that the
University will hold registration
Monday, January 4, as previously
According to the rumor current
ly rampant on the campus, the ad
ministrative board had discovered
that a saving of some $27,000 could
be effected if the opening of school
were delayed one week. The board
was said to be contemplating such
an action.
In discrediting the rumor Dean
Gilbert declared that in view of the
fact that all salaries are continu
ous saving would be impossible.
The only possibility for economy
under such an action would be in
full for heating the buildings, a
negligible sum in comparison with
the full total of necessary Univer
sity expenditures, Dean Gilbert
further pointed out.
"How such a rumor came into
existence is beyond my compre
hension, and, of course, it is all
nonsense,” Dean Gilbert said in

A serenade of the townsfolk
with old English carols by a group
of sixty or more voices which will
comprise the Revels Carolers for

the campus December 7, was the
plan announced yesterday by Gif
ford Nash, assistant in charge of
arrangements for the carolers.
Professor S. Stephenson Smith,
assisted by Nash and Grace Bur
nett, will select a group which, if
present plans mature properly,
will be half men and half women.
Cooperation among various cam
pus groups has been whole-hearted,
according to Nash. The Oregon
Yeomen’s double male quartet has
volunteered to be on deck. They
with a picked group, chosen by
Nash and rehearsed by S. Stephen
son Smith, will form the nucleus
for the carolers.

Tuttle Explains Best Method
For Studying Final Exams
Proper Organization Is
Said To Be Problem
Of Most Students
Concentration, organization of
material, and writing questions
and answers are the important ele
ments in an efficient preparation
for final examinations, H. S. Tut

tion, told the frosh Y. M. C. A.
council last night In the second
meeting of his series on the ques
tion, “Am I Getting an Educa
Two classes of subjects lend
themselves to cramming, Mr. Tut
tle said. They are those in which
memory and reasoning are needed
most, subjects such as acquiring
skill and appreciation of art or
music must be developed gradual
ly, and cramming will do little
good, he said.
Final examination questions tend
toward the organization type. If
a student organizes and analyzes
his material, and then writes a list
of probable questions, fie will stand
a very good chance of arriving at
the correct answers, according to
the speaker.
Mr. Tuttle advised students to
avoid heavy meals and allow plen
ty of time for sleep during exam
The next meeting of this series
will be next Tuesday evening. The
subject will be “The Organization
of Time.”
Tests for Manual
Adaptions Being
Developed Here
Seashore and McCollom
Cooperate in Making
Muscular Studies
Dr. Robert H. Seashore, associ
ate professor of psychology, and
Ivan N. McCollom, graduate re
search assistant in the psychology
department, have recently com
pleted the construction of a set of
tests for muscular co-ordination,
especially designed for use in the
Merrill Palmer pre-school at De
troit, Michigan. This is an insti
tution for children from 2 years
old up to those of public school
The tests will be used at the
Merrill Palmer school to study the
stability of individual differences
and manual skills over a number
of years. This is the twelfth set
of similar apparatus built for
other universities and laboratories,
all of which are working on re
lated problems in individual dif
ferences and motor skills.
At the present time Dr. Sea
shore and McColloim are making a
study to determine the interrela
tions of individual differences in
motor and mechanical skills. In
this study they are giving a large
number of motor, mechanical, and
athletic tests to university men
and also are following the devel
opment of some of the skills at
earlier ages.
This research is being conducted
on a grant from the National Re
search council and also from the
University of Oregon. As soon as
the experiments are completed,
Seashore and McCollom plan to
summarize their findings into a
book on individual differences in

Since the three debaters, Robert

in some way the accomplishments
of their classmates in furthering
international relations and giving
Oregon such extensive publicity. 1
The gift will probably take the
form of a University scholarship

Tuttle Publishes Article
In Educational Journal
“Honesty Trends of Elementary
School Children” is the title of an
article by Harold S. Tuttle, profes
sor in the school of education,
which appears in the November
number of Religious Education, a
journal devoted to the development
of character through the family,
the church, the school, and other
community agencies.
The article is the first of a se
ries resulting from a three-year
study conducted by Professor Tut
tle in 13 grade schools in Oregon
where he gave tests to pupils from
the fourth to the eighth grades.
The second article will be pub
lished by the Sunday School Jour- j
nal, of Boston, while the third will
appear in the Journal of Educa
tional Sociology of New York City.
Each of the three articles in the
series is an independent report of
a certain phase of the study made
by Professor Tuttle. A complete
report of this research work will
be published later in the form of
a bulletin.

Week-end Dates
To Be Restricted
By Every House
jyjANY students hold erron
eous ideas as to the re
strictions to be enforced on
“dosed” week-ends. To dear
up this misinformation, Mrs.
Alice B. Macduff yesterday
made the following statements:
Friday, December 4, is open
to dances; Saturday, December
5, is dosed; Friday and Satur
day, December 11 and 12, are
both closed to dances and enter

On both these “dosed” week

Morse To Deliver
Law Lectures at
Columbia School
Dean and Howard To Visit
American Law School
Representatives from the Uni
versity of Oregon school of law
will this month perform two major
functions in eastern law school
Dean Wayne L. Morse will leave
Saturday for New York City, upon
the invitation of Columbia univer
sity, to deliver a series of law
school lectures there.
He will also represent Oregon,
with Prof. Charles G. Howard, law
professor, at the annual conven
tion of the Association of Ameri
can Law schools to be held in Chi
cago December 28, 29, and 30.
At Columbia law school, Dean
Morse is to discuss "criminal law
and research investigations into
the administration of criminal jus
Will Study Investigations
He will also confer with Dr. Ray
mond C. Moley, research director
of the newly created New York
crime commission, and will study
the investigations being made by
the New York legislative commit
tee which is now probing the ad
ministration of criminal justice in
New York City.
Morse holds a position similar to
Dr. Moley’s with respect to the
Oregon crime commission.
At the Chicago convention of the
Association of American Law
Schools, of which the University
is a member, Morse is to discuss
"educational standards for pn .le
gal training.”
To Approve Courses
One proposal to come before this
body will be a recommendation
that all pre-legal courses in mem
ber universities should be approved
by the executive committee of the
law school association.
Inasmuch as the Oregon law
school faculty has for several years
required preparatory courses in
such fields as the physical and so
cial sciences, the proposed change
will not materially affect the sit
uation here, except that the execu
tive committee may require cer
tain content courses which are not
now offered, Morse said yesterday.
Dean Morse is of the opinion
“that the proposal, which is aimed
to correlate pre-legal and law
school disciplines, will strengthen
the scholastic work done in asso
ciation law schools.”'*
Similar to Pre-Medics
The plan is similar to the con
trol of the American Medical
School association over pre-medical
courses, and “results from a desire
to develop law students who under
stand the significance of the con
tributions of findings of social sci
ence to the law.”
Members of this law school as
sociation are required to maintain
certain scholastic, faculty, library,
and pedagogical standards which
are approved by the executive com
mittee and by the American Bar
