    Douglass Presents Views
On 'Open Shelf’ Library Plan
Concerning the “open shelf”
policy used by Reed college of
Portland„as explained in an article
in the Sunday Oregonian, M. H.
Douglass, University librarian,
stated yesterday that allowing stu
dents to browse as suggested
therein was not feasible in a large
institutions, a s misplacing o f
books and general confusion would
most certainly be the result. Reed
college, he noted, is an institution
of not more than a few hundred
whereas the University of Oregon
library is open to the use of three
thousand persons or more, including
graduate and honor students, and
the faculty.
Graduate and honor students,
and embers of the faculty are al
lowed access to the stacks as is
done in the “open shelf” policy.
The number of persons, between
four and five hundred, thus allowed
special permission to browse in
the stacks probably outnumber
the total number of students at
Reed college. More could not pos
sibly be allowed without confu
The “open shelf” policy will prob
ably be more widespread when the
new library is constructed, accord
ing to plans already formulated,
Mr. Douglass continued. There are
to be a series of reserve reference
rooms for upper division and grad
uate students, such as room 30 is
now, where the shelves will be la
beled as to courses and professors.
These rooms are to be smaller and
quieter and generally more handy
than those in use now. In addition
there will be one large room for
general reference work for the
students, and also a large open
shelf collection of books for gen
eral reading.

Many Countries Represents
One hundred and two countries,
a considerably larger number than
most people have ever heard of,
were represented in the United
States cosmopolitan student popu
lation for this past year, according
to statistics of the Committee for
Friendly Relations among Foreign
Students. They are scattered
through every state in the union,
being enrolled at no less than 600
colleges and universities.
Every European country, every
Latin American republic, and ex
otic spots like Iceland, Iraq, Cy
prus, Borneo, Sumatra and Af
ghanistan are represented.
Columbia university still leads,
with about 750 overseas students
registered, and New York univer
sity runs second with over 600. The
University of California is third
with nearly 600, and others high
on the list include the University
of Southern California, University
of Chicago, George Washington
University, University of Michi
gan, University of Minnesota, and
the University of Washington.
A Boon to Parents
Ten years from now the entire
undergraduate body of Columbia
college will be self-supporting, ac
cording to Nicholas McDowell Mc
Knight, retiring secretary of ap
pointments, in a report made early
in December to Dr. Nicholas Mur

Looking into the future, Mr. Mc
Knight predicted that if the per
centage of self-supporting students
(those whose college expenses are
not completely provided for by
family or friends) increases at the
same rate us during the last seven
years, in 1941 the entire under
graduate body will be self-support
ing to some extent. At the present
time 60 per cent of the students
are employed in some sort of out
side work.

Evidence of the universality of
student feeling on the subject of
disarmament was given by the poll
taken at Yale college, in which
2,452 undergraduates voted and 92
per cent favored reduction of arm

ing was also overwhelmingly op
posed, not only by those who were
at the time undergoing it, but also
by the upperclassmen who had fin
ished with it.

issue of the state’s attitude toward
“criminal syndicalism.”
It concerns the case of Boloff,
who was recently sentenced to 10
years in the state penitentiary for
violation of the criminal syndical
ism law. The 4-3 vote of the state
supreme court concerning the
treatment of this question has
aroused a great deal of discussion,
and some state newspapers of the
conservative type had expressed
themselves as out of sympathy

deadline for handing in the essays
has been set at March 1. It :s

of the present term. For further
information applicants are asked
to get in touch with George Turn

The contest is sponsored through
a bequest made in 1904 by Philo

the selection of 25 state universi

Clark Outlines Importance
Of Volume on Fur Trade
Dr. R. C. Clark of the history
department of the University has
just received a book edited by
Prof. Frederick Merk of Harvard,
entitled “George Simpson’s Jour
nal, Fur Trade and Empire, 1824
1825.” According to Dr. Clark,
this book is unusually important
because it throws light to the
early history of Oregon—giving j
facts hitherto unknown.
Dr. John McLoughlin, Professor
Clark said, has always been re
garded as the man who laid the
foundation of the Oregon territory
when he established a fur trading
post on the present site of Astoria.
This book, however, shows that Sir
George Simpson, then governor of
the Hudson Bay Company of
America, was the first man to
found a fur trading post in what
developed to be the state of Ore
gon. If this were to be taken into
gppount, the credit accorded to
McLoughlin should go to Simpson,
Dr. Clark stated.

state board of higher education in
the appointment of a committee to

On the committee are Albert

was chosen by C. L. Starr, chair

to report on its findings.
Continuing its sessions Tuesday,
the state board will go into the

not visit high schools except when
so invited by the secondary schools,
the board ruled today. High school
track meets and band contests are

A study of salary and wage
scales of all college and Univer

as the state education body began
its meetings. E. C. Sammons,
chairman of the finance commit

of the investigation.

The latest importation from Eu
ropean screen circles, Lil Dagover,
makes her initial American ap
pearance m “The Woman from
Monte Carlo,” which concludes its
run at the Heilig todajr. Miss
Dagover shows considerable possi
bilities, having beauty, charm, and
Greta Garbo’s accent. The story
hardly gives the German actress
a fair chance to demonstrate her
ability, however. No foreign star
is really proven until she has
shown her full array of emotions.
The picture, which was made by
Billie Dove a few years ago, con
cerns the faithless wife of a French
naval commander. Most of the ac
tion takes place aboard a cruiser
during the war. Walter Huston
is very unreal in the part of the
Commander, and Warren William
is miscast as the young officer
who falls in love with the woman
from Monte,Carlo. (What Monte
Carlo has to do with this film,
we don’t know.) The story is told
in a rather patchy manner. Re
deeming feature: naval battle por
trayed with considerable realism.
Marion Marsh and Warren Wil
liam are coming tomorrow to the
Heilig in “Under Eighteen,” for a
three-day showing.
