    Novel System
For Eyesight
Test Devised
New Project Originated
By Dr. Crosland
Psychology Instructor Writes
Series of Articles on Right
And Left-Eyedness
Dr. Harold R. Crosland of the
department of psychology has
written for scientific magazines
three articles dealing with right
and left-eyedness and its effect on
accurate reading. In the June.
1933, issue of the Journal of Ex
perimental Psychology, is the first
article, called, "A Technique to
Control, and to Measure the Ef
fects of Fixation in the ‘Range of
Attention’ Experiment.”
The second, ‘‘A Modified Grav
ity Chonoscope,” in the July num
ber of the Journal of General Psy
chology, deals with the apparatus
used in this experiment.
Some of the results of the ex
periment, and the conclusions
made are given in the third paper,
"A Method of Measuring the Ef
fects of Primacy of Report in the
‘Range of Attention’ Experiment,”
in the October issue of the Ameri
can Journal of Psychology.
Card System Used
Through a system of cards and j
varied methods of reports, Cros- |
land believes that he has eliminat .
ed the part that memory might |
play in such an experiment. These !
cards are printed differently, so
that one set has the nine letters
placed, far to the right, one set
has them in the center, and one
has them to the left. The subject
cannot know beforehand where he
will be expected to focus his eyes,
and thus a center focus is attained.
When the light exposing the card
goes off, the person is asked to
write down in their proper order,
the letters he thinks he saw.
Since reading is usually from
left to fight, the natural tendency
would be to write them down in
this order, but by the time one
reached the fourth or fifth letter,
the letters further to the right
Would have been forgotten. There
fore, Dr. Crosland has developed
methods, called, respectively, the
right-left recall, in which the sub
ject writes down the letters from
right to left, the center-recall, in
which he begins in the center and

goes both ways, and the normal
left-right recall.
The cards are shown in a ran
dom order, and the recall methods
are used in a random order, so
that the subject may look at a card
where the letters are printed at
the left and be asked to start with
the right hand letter and go to
ward the left in recalling.
The apparatus used in this ex
periment, which has been used 18,
000 times without variation, was
developed by the collaboration of
Dr. Crosland and C. N. Crocker
of the Hendershott gun store.

(Continued from ratio One)
opened the assembly with two vio- j
Iin numbers.
Open Foriim Held
After the address, Hossain an-1
swered questions about Gandhi,
the Russian experiment, Asiatic
unrest, and American occupation
of the Philippines.
‘‘Ninety per cent of the people
of India are solidly behind Gand
hi," Hossain declared. “Gandhi
believes in conquering by love and j
self-sacrifice. He is fighting for;
masses of people who are living
today on the borderline of starva- ]
tion, and he identifies himself with
them.”
Of Russia, Hossain remarked,
“We should be led neither by ex
treme optimism or excessive pes
simism. We should watch it just
like any other experiment in a
chemical laboratory.” He had said
in his address that he believed it
would be 25 years before any defi
nite statement should be made.
Movement Anti-European
“The movement in Asia is away
from European imperialism,” Hos
sain replied to a query on nation
alism, “rather than an ‘Asia for
Asians’ movement.”
Dr. Warren D. Smith asked
Hossain his opinion of America’s
position in the Philippines. •
“Certainly American occupation
is one exception in which a great
power has not exploited its colony,
in the sense the others have. In
32 years the United States has
done more in education among the
Filipinos than the British have
done among the Indians in 150
years.”
‘‘I wouldn’t say that about Cuba
and Haiti, however,” he added.
Shumaker Gets
Queer Answers
In English Exam
Given certain words to define
in sentences, Kenneth Shumaker’s
English K students produced a re
vised edition of Webster’s diction
ary. Here are a few of the prize
concoctions:
We “coagulate” good when to
gether.
Did you “segregate” the chick-;
en’s head ?
The pig is a “vivacious” crea
ture.
This happened before the “crite
rion” age.
The bullet went sailing off into
“inamorata” (male lover).
The specimen was an “inamo
rata.”
The “finite” had arriyed and we
left.
The man had an “epitome” on
his side.
The pledges “rotate” with their
duties.
He had a “thwart” on his hand.
He cooked a "flagrant” meal.
The robbers were a “vivacious”
band.
Please “nosiate” threw your
nose.
They take the “sensuous” every
ten years.

I Law Schools to be held in Chicago

Trip of Success
“Broadway to Hollywood” is
built around the troubles facing
the old time stage actors since the
theater has been engulfed by sound
picures. It begins back in the 80’s,
and records the growth of Mr. and
Mrs. Hackett’s son.
Mr. and Mrs. Hackett are an act
on the stage known as "The Haclc
ett's,” and that’ll be enough "hack
ing” for a while. As the boy
grows, he becomes the attraction
of the “Three Hacketts” act. He
marries and another son is born.
The second generation passes on
and the third makes good in Holly
wood. The grandparents are in
strumental in making a sensible
fellow out of the third generation.
Comment: This is one of the
better pictures; not a “best,” but
certainly worth anyone’s time. Al
ice Brady and Frank Morgan are
very good, as a couple of old trou
pers should be. And Madge Evans,
(need I say it?) lives up to my
high expectations. She might be a
star some day. She’s handicapped
by her “niceness” and lack of
“glamor,” but may make the grade
anyway.
As for “Charlie Chan’s Greatest
Case,” let it be known that Heath
er Angel looks her last name. This
is the same as other Charlie Chan
pictures.
There's a Sportlight by Rice
showing "How to be a Champion.”

Students Are Coached
For Scientific Terms
An experiment is being carried
on by Kenneth Shumaker, of the
University English department,
Shailer A. Peterson, science
teacher at Lebanon high school,
and Dale Leslie, science teacher
at University high school in Eu
gene, to coach students in the use
of scientific terms. A list of words
pertaining to science will be given
the English K students at the Uni
versity and also students at Uni
versity high, to find out the terms
which are within reach of student
vocabulary.
The English Journal has ac
cepted an article on this experi
ment in word coaching written by
Mr. Peterson. It will appear in
the December issue.
Freshman Girls Urged
To Attend Philomelete
Prose, Poetry and Drama group
of Philomelete is having a party
this afternoon at 4, at the home
of Miss E. Lenore Casford, 2026
Agate street (between 19th and
20th.)
Miss Casford is planning an in
! teresting program and it will be
an excellent lime for any girls in
I terested in the group to become
j acquainted with the activities and
programs carried out during the
year. Freshman girls are extended
a special invitation and all others
| interested please attend.
King oil Board
Harold H. King, who was grad
uated from the University in the
class of *551, has the position of
cashier ft r the Eugene water
board King wao married in July
to Lois Brownell, also of Eugene.
I Evans again. Have I mentioned
i her before ? She ought to be good.
! They use her enough.
“The Nuisance” is the same old
Tracy, only a lawyer this time who
fixes up cases such that the street
car companies have to pay dam
ages for blowing wind against in
nocent citizens. Almost said “by
standers.”
The squeeze comes when the girl
is hired by the company to get evi
dence against the lawyer. P. S.
She gets the evidence, but won't
spill it. Why ?
Another good man, Frank Mor
gan does an exceptionally fine job
of the drunken dQctor.
Nancy Carroll is another act
ress I like. But Godfrey likes Ed
mund Lowe. So, Edmund Lowe is
in “I Love That Man,” which is
the other show on the bill. Can't
find much, but understand it’s a
gangster picture.

DETECTIVE STORIES BY
DOYLE PLEASE HOSSAIN
(Continued from l\i</r One)
to us. Oh, for phonetic symbols
on a linotype machine!
Hossain's first name, Syud,
serves a double purpose. It is both
his “given" name and a title of
honor. Only lineal descendants of
the prophet Mohammed are per
mitted to be called “Syud.”
Aside from his lecture platform
work, Hossain does some journalis
tic writing. He plans to write a
book on a subject which has inter
ested him for many years, a com
parative study of the world’s great
religions, particularly in relation
to the crisis in the religious world
today.
“My own belief,” he remarked,
“is that every religion has spiritual
truth in it. No one religion has a
monopoly on the truth.”
Before coming to Eugene on this
lecture tour, Hossain spoke at Be1
lingham normal in Washington and
at the Oregon normal school at
Monmouth. He left yesterday af
ternoon for San Francisco. In the
guest book in Alumni hall he gave
his home address as “New York
City.”
