Cataloging at Library * Explained by Douglass Students and members of the faculty who cannot find a parti cular book in the University lib rary have at their disposal a sup plementary catalogue of books which the Oregon State college library has received, since last falll, that the Oregon library lacks, Matthew H. Douglass, Uni versity librarian, stated. The catalogue lists the books by authors only, and not by subject or title. If a patron of the Oregon library finds the book he wants listed among those at Oregon State, an attempt will be made to borrow it for him. Mr. Douglass said that eventu ally he hopes that the O. S. C. and Oregon libraries will have joint catalogues of all their books. Tn case neither the Oregon State nor the Oregon library has the book desired, there is still another file, consisting of slips sent by the University of Michigan library, naming the books which are in their library that the Library of Congress has not yet catalogued. The interfraternity council at Minnesota university recently passed a resolution requiring a $2 fee of freshmen accepting dates during the regular winter quarter rushing week. The measure was designed to help fraternities de fray the cost of rushee’s meals and to eliminate the entertainment of freshmen who might accept with no intention of becoming a mem ber of any fraternity. Macduff Calls for Women Students’ Grade Warnings ]y|KS. ALICE B. MACDUFF, assistant dean of women, issued a plea that all women students who received grade warnings at mid-term turn the slips in at her office immediate ly Mrs. Macduff mentioned that the blue warning slips were sent out after mid-term exams and should have been attended to at that time. She further called attention to the fact that this term is nearing its close and the purpose of the warnings is to show the student his position to allow him a chance to im prove. Women Opposed To Duplication in (group Personnel New Big Sister Resolution Passed at Conference Of Three Bodies Women students as a result of a recent conference between repre sentatives of A. W. S., W. A. A., and Y. W. C. A. have decided to take a definite stand against over-organization on the campus and will oppose duplication of the personnel of different groups, and disapprove of emphasis in the liv ing organizations of the question of grades, and a heavy freshman schedule of activities. A resolution was also passed to the effect that girls chosen as Big Sisters be consulted before the appointment is made public. The new Big Sister policy will give fewer charges to each sponsor. An additional suggestion was made that the girls in the present freshman class name the women they would recommend for the positions of Big Sisters for the coming year. The A. W. S. executive council ratified resolutions providing for an activities chairman on the council, suggesting to Mr. Onthank 1hat a course in practical home economics and home management be instituted, and favoring a sys tem whereby advisors will be available before the end of the winter term for consultation. It was also decided that such a con ference be established as an an nual affair. Window Mistake Contest Will Close This Morning The window mistake contest has attracted much attention judging by the interested groups gathered about it, Addison Smith of the Co-op said yesterday. The contest will remain open till 10 a. m. this morning. Chances of winning a prize are still very good, Smith said, as some of the mis takes are noticeably only to keen observers. Winners of the contest will be announced in tomorrow morning’s Emerald. Professor Copeland, the Harvard Lacedomonian, says, “Pretty good poetry is like pretty good eggs." Alpha Delta Sigma Pledges Four Men Wednesday Noon Reymers, Sanford, Hall, Rush Received Into Advertising Group Alpha Delta Sigma, national professional advertising fraternity, has pledged four men, according to a statement made by Harry Schenk, president of the group yesterday. The men are Bob Hall, Maiir Reymers, Aut.en Bush, and George Sanford. The four men were pledged Wednesday at a luncheon at the College Side Inn, but formal an nouncement was withheld until yesterday. Bob Hall is a business administration major and a junior. He has done considerable work about the campus, and has gained prominence in campus advertising circles. Mahr Reymers is a junior in the school of journalism. He has been associated with the advertising of the Emerald for the past three years. Auten Bush, a junior in the school of business administra tion, has been connected with ad vertising work on the campus for three years, and at present is as sistant advertising manager of the Emerald. George Sanford is a sophomore in the school of jour nalism. He did advertising work before entering the University, and is now a day editor on the Emer ald. TOO MANY HIGH GRADES GIVEN FOR FALL TERM (Continued from Page One) sity would be C, though for the fall term it was approximately C plus or B minus. The average un der the old system was approxi mately 3.4, which would be equiv alent to a C under the present grading method. Some Classes Higher That some members of the fac ulty and some classes should have higher than normal grade distribu tions is considered natural because of the nature of the courses, such as specialized subjects for upper division students. In these, how ever, it is expected that there will be a fairly even distribution of the higher grades and not a predom inance of any one grade. For the usual class in a re quired course, however, it is ex pected that the grade distribution this term will conform fairly close ly to the percentages considered normal. This will mean that there will be a decrease in the number of A’s and B's given and an in crease in the number of D’s and F’s. The change will be general throughout the University and will not effect any particular group of students. The change in lower grades is expected in largely in creased number of D's and a slight ly increased number of F's. CLARK WILL SPEAK Dan E. Clark will speak in Port land next Thursday evening at 8 p. m. at the Portland public li brary. His subject is Washington and the West. This talk is one of a series being given by the Port land public library in connection with the bi-centennial anniversary of Washington’s birthday. ANNOUNCING To our friends that the former “Oregon Flower Shop” at 829 E. I 3th has now been changed to the Campus Flower Service under new management. Our phone number is now 1209 Specializing in Corsages and flowers for all occasions. CAMPUS FLOWER SERVICE N. B. Zane — Lester McDonald 829 E. 13th Phone 1209 From Other College # j G Circles DEPRESSION GETS OKAY Economic depressions such as the world is now experiencing are necessary for the progress of civilization, believes Prof. E. G. Conklin, head of the biology de partment at Princeton university. “Rome of the weaker, according to the law of nature, “will natur ally die under stress of the Limes,” he declares. “Others will not propagate their kind. The strong and hardy will survive and reproduce, and thus the human race will be strengthened.” MOSQUITOES CAN “FAEL” The male mosquito's liking for “the wimmin’,” may ultimately lead to the destruction of the pest in this country, it was revealed here when announcement was made that Prof. Elihu Thomson of the General Electric Co. has found a machine which reproduces the hum of the female mosquito so perfectly that millions of male in sects were led to their destruc tion in it last summer. The machine is one used in fus ing quartz for an astronomical mirror. It was only by accident that Prof. Thomson noticed that the hum of the apparatus was drawing the mosquitoes from a nearby marsh. The heat of the furnace immediately killed the in sects. If the principle is correct, mankind may ultimately be freed of the summer’s worst pest. EX-KAISER PRAISES PROF Professor M. H. Cochran of the history department of the Univer sity of Missouri, author of a new book, “Germany Not Guilty,” re ceived this letter from William Hohenzollern, once emperor of Germany. “Sincerest compliments and warmest admiration for your bril liant ‘Germany Not Guilty,’ in which you deal Prof. B. Schmitt a withering blow. There is not the slightest doubt about who were the real culprits that started the World war. They stand ar raigned before the tribunal of history awaiting her verdict. The world crisis the Allies are suffer ing from is the punishment Provi dence is meting out to them for their crimes in 1914 and at Ver sailles in 1918.” The ex-kaiser’s greeting was written in English on the back of a post card. Prof. Cochran is a graduate of Harvard and has been a member of the Missouri uni versity faculty since 1928. WINTERS NOT WARMING UP Folk who think all winters, not only this one, are milder in these parts, simply have the wrong kind of memories, according to 1 Gustave S. Lindgren of the United States Weather bureau in Albany, ; New York. He considers this winter an ex ception, but he asserts that over a long period records show no cli matic change. “When I went to college,” he says, "the daily task of breaking the ice in the water pitcher to wash sent chills down the spine. That was enough to make the weather seem cold the rest of the day. Now we have warmer houses, better clothing and food, are more athletic and are not so aware of the cold.” - MASS HAPPINESS IS AIM A plea that American colleges and universities take a more ac tive interest in aiding good gov ernment was made before the Atlanta chapter of the Emory University Alumni association by Dr. Dumas Malone, editor of the "Dictionary of American Biog raphy.” He urged that institutions of higher learning develop unselfish and outstanding leadership and bend their efforts to "solving the riddle of happiness for the masses instead of aiming at a sel fish goal. “Signs of an intellectual awak ening are apparent in every uni- j versity in the land,” he said, "and from the chaos and moral anarchy ! of a disillusioned generation a j new morality is arising, carrying with it a stronger sense of public responsibility. "Accordingly, it seems that the university of tomorrow will play a larger part in the vital affairs of the nation. The social scientist, dealing with persons rather than things, and the humanist and phil osopher. glorifying the mind and spirit, will come into their own j [perhaps at the expense of the sci-1 \ Hatter’s Banquet Tickets on Sale at University Co-op IICKETS for the Mad Hat ter's banquet, unique all eampus affair being given by the Wesley club Friday evening, February 26, are on sale at the University Co-op store, it is an nounced by Philip Dale, in charge of ticket sales. Only 200 tickets arc being sold, and students or faculty members who plan to attend are urged to make their reserva tions, now, Dale said. The pasteboards are selling at 50 cents each. Group Heads of Philomelete Plan Executive Policy New Idea To Bring Belter Cooperation Between Different Bodies That the Philomelete hobby groups will follow a new executive policy for the remainder of the winter term and the first of the spring term, was decided at a meeting of the group presidents Wednesday evening in the women’s lounge of Gerlinger hall. The presidents of the various groups will act as a council for the entire Philomelete organiza tion under the proposed plan. Helen Evans, president of Phi Theta Up silon, upperclass women’s honor ary, will be an ex-officio member. This executive group will arrange for all the activities, two of which are the Philomelete spring dance and picnic. This body will also serve as a clearing house for ideas and policies of the different groups. “It's a move toward more inti mate relations between the groups, with efficient cooperation in Phil omelete,” Miss Evans stated in speaking of the new policy that is to be tried out. Officers of the council appointed by Miss Evans are: Kathleen Mc Nutt, charm school group, presi dent; Harriet Smith, arts and crafts group, secretary; Genevieve Dunlop, woman in her sphere group, reporter. Each president was asked to pre pare a resume of the activities of her group for this year which will be filed in the dean of women’s of fice. Suggestions for the policies and plans for the groups for next year are also to be turned in. _ _ _ _ < TALKIE TOPICS ► Heilig — “The Final Edition,” fea turing May Clarke.
