bands competed from 1 to 3
o’clock, and the class B contest
was run off immediately after the

“Cavalcade” is the first epic pic
I ture I've had the good fortune to
| sec that approaches the epic. It
has scope, magnitude, perspective
| and life. It is as real as the great
nation it typifies.
Clive Brook, for God and coun
try, is admirable. Diana Wynard
is magnificent. The whole thing
moves as surely as time, from an
inevitable beginning to an inevita
ble ending. In spite of the fact
that it is essentially British, glo
rifies the nation on which the “sun
never sets,” and makes a sound of
trumpet in your ears, it doesn’t
smack of propaganda.
The action is rather different
than most—we view the progress
of England from 1900 to 1933,
i through the Boer war and the
great war, but always through the
eyes of those at home. None of
the spectacle of banners and trum
pets and neighing horses mitigate
the grimness of war. Except for
an impressionistic handling of the
great war we see none of it—and
yet we feel it more deeply, per
haps, than if we had.
And through it all the impres
sion, despite weakness, troubles,
propaganda, and decay, of the es
sential greatness of the country.
“The Cavalcade” moves surely
forward. Tou can believe what it
says or not, but you can’t fail to
be impressed and thrilled by a
magnificent performance. McDon

Colonial’s “Farewell to Arms" is
a different matter. Hemingway’s
story is of war, too—but he is a
, realist. We live through the war
I on the Italian front, and we live
i through an hour strangely blended
| of pain and beauty, too.
| I've said before that I believe
I “Farewell to Arms" to be excel
lent. Helen Hayes makes the
character of Catherine live as
Hemingway must have meant her.
And Gary Cooper is just such a
strained, inarticulate and groping
hero as that. Metro-Goldwyn
Mayer performed a real job in
filming the picture as delicately
and beautifully as it did.
Incongruously mated as these
two are, their love story is beau
tiful, and the tragedy of its end
ing is real. Our tribute must nec
essarily be. paid to Miss Hayes as
a great actress, but splendid di
rection and excellent support by
Cooper and Adolph Menjou help
to make the picture one it's pos
sible to see twice. And they're
rare enough.
ip * *
Helen Hayes will be arriving in
Eugene soon in her latest picture,
much like “Farewell to Arms."
Also a war picture, also laid on
the Italian front, “The White Sis
ter,” contains Clark Gable as the
love interest.
And to prove again that they
come in bunches, Leslie Howard's
newest picture is also of the war—
"Fellow Prisoners,” from Philip
Gibbs' novel of that name. Sec
ond feature of interest—there is
not a woman in the cast, although
one motivates the entire plot. The
action all takes place in a German
prison camp. Junior Fairbanks

Prints Student Survey
Results of a survey of fraternity
and sorority preceptor-tutor sys
tems extent and practices made
by John Foreman, senior in sociol
ogy, during the fall term of 1932,
have been published in Phi Gamma
Delta, his fraternity publication,
for April, 1933. The survey was
made as a project of the methods
and practice of personnel guidance
class of Karl W. Onthank, dean
of personnel administration.
National fraternities and soror
ities, to whom Mr. Foreman wrote
seeking material, requested copies
of the complete project and were
supplied by Dean Onthank. Ques

chapters and 18 national sorority
headquarters with 25 or more
chapters. Twenty-five fraternities
and 11 sororities answered.

Another aid to business
... a Teletypewriter “Central”
Working out new ways to serve the communica
tion needs of the public is an objective always in the
minds of Bell System men. The new Teletypewriter
Exchange Service—typing by wire—is an example.
For some years Private Wire Teletypewriter Ser
vice has speeded communication between separated
units of many large organizations. Telephone men—
anxious to make this service more widely useful —
have now established Teletypewriter central offices,
through which any subscriber to the service may be
connected directly with any other subscriber. Both
can type back and forth — their messages being re
produced simultaneously at each point.
This new service provides fast, dependable com
munication and does for the written word what tele
phone service does for the spoken word. It is one
more Bell System contribution to business efficiency.
Work of Artists
Will Be Shown
The work of several artists in
sculpture and pottery from the
art school will be shown in the

sculpture, will exhibit two sculp
ture garden pieces and one pot
tery. Oliver Barrett, assistant
professor of sculpture, will show

Avakian, assistant of applied de
sign, will show several pieces.
There will be several student dis
plays also.
Mrs. Harold Dickson Marsh,
president of the Portland Park
and Garden Sculpture society,
mentioned the success in 1932 of
the society when it held the first
all-sculpture exhibit in the Pacific
Northwest with 93 pieces of sculp
ture and 45 pieces of pottery.

People All OverState Taking
Advantage of Library Plan
, '
People in all sections of the
state are taking advantage of the
reading course plan offered by the
state library in cooperation with
the Oregon state system of higher
education, it was declared here
this week by Miss Harriet Long,
state librarian. Miss Long con
ferred with faculty members here
and at other institutions on prep
aration of reading lists for the
The reading course plan was re
cently brought to the attention
of all former students and pros
pective students of higher educa
tion by Chancellor W. J. Kerr,
who sent a letter to all persons
who might be interested. To date
more than 200 requests for the
courses have been received by the
state library at Salem.
Requests cover more than 85
subjects, Miss Long says, and are
from 64 postoffices in 30 counties.
Benton county, with 38 requests,
Deschutes with 29 and Marion
with 16 are leaders in the list.
At Philomath the courses have
received the special attention of
the local librarian, who has in
duced 33 persons to enroll. In
Bend 27 have enrolled.
The courses, which cover a wide
variety of subjects, are available
free of charge, those taking them
being required to pay only post
age on books which will be sent
them from the state library at
The courses are expected to
prove especially valuable to those
whose education has been inter
rupted due to the present eco
nomic condition. They carry no
credit, but may be regarded a3
aids to courses to be resumed

It Must Be Spring!
Crosland Warms
Up Old Soup-bone
Spring is here at last!
As a sure sign of it. Dr. H. R.
Croslan l of the psychology de
partment, went out .to play base
ball this week, not once only, but
twice. Once before this year he
attempted this feat but the rain
drove him in. Late Wednesday af
ternoon he made the second trip
out for the day so there is no
doubt that the “young man's
fancy” season has finally arrived.
It seems that it is Dr. Crosland’s
habit to incorporate the services
of any department assistant to
play catch with him. Yesterday it
was Ray Adams (and he giving
steadiness tests at that)!
. Dr. Crosland says he pitches ball
to keep his mind in trim, but it is
the belief of members of the psy
chology department that his real
aim is to take off some of the
winter stiffness out of his pitching
raking in the United States Be
tween 1902 and 1931.” Lincoln
Steffens, a recent speaker here,
was the leader of the “muck
rakers” or social reformers of the
time and his activities are de
scribed in the thesis.
Anderson Finds
Hebrew Children
Invert Writing
Irving Anderson, graduate as
sistant in the psychology depart
ment, recently found through read
ing tests and eye movement ex
periments performed at the Neigh
borhood House, e Hebrew school
in Portland, two cases of inver
sion, where the children wrote
their names from right to left with
the letters upside down.
Mr. Anderson said that the in
teresting problem which confront
ed him was encompassed in the
fact that the Hebrew children
read, write, and speak both the
Hebrew and English languages.
Hebrew being read from right to
left and English left to right, it
was necessary to determine the
effect of the opposite habits.
Hebrew children learn to read
Hebrew at the age of six, accord
ing to Anderson, just when they
are beginning to iearn to read and
write the English language. Tests
made to indicate the exact effect
each language would have on the
other were accomplished by means
of flash cards, or what is known
as tachistoscopic perception.
In commenting on his work in
the Portland Hebrew school, Mr.
Anderson said that he had en
joyed working with the children
and their instructors because of
the cooperation given him.

Learning Things
Children aren’t taught words by syllables any more, but
by their meanings. They learn it s the use of a word that
counts—not merely its pleasing sound.
When you buy, you know it s the use of a product that
counts, not merely its pleasing sound. You can learn its
uses and all it means—before you buy. If you read the
advertisements, you know definitely how a certain refri
gerator will act in your own kitchen; how that furniture
polish will improve your own chairs. What is advertised
has to do what it’s advertised to do. Advertisements are
honest. They invite too many thousands of testers not to
be honest. Their continued advertising proves them hon
est! You take advertised facts on faith—as you take the
dictionary on faith. You know that the perfume, hosiery,
canned goods they describe are the perfumes, hosiery,
canned goods widely enjoyed. You read advertisements
to know the true meaning of things before you invest in
their use.
