    Plans Pushed
Further Ahead
For Infirmary
Part of Project Will Be
Given by Government
New Library Plans Are Considered
By Members of Oregon
Board in Meeting
Plans for the proposed 5100,000
University infirmary were pushed
along by action of the state ad
visory board of the public works
administration in forwarding the
project to Washington for ap
proval, according to C. C. Hockley,
engineer of the board.
The project provides for a loan
of $100,000, 30 per cent of which
will be considered a gift by the
government and need not be re
paid. Of the remaining $70,000
which must be repaid, $50,000 will
be provided by the state under a
legislative act of two years ago.
This will leave only $20,000 to be
paid by the A. S. U. O., which
will amount to $23,000 with inter
est charges added. This sum will
be taken care of with the A. S.
U. O. building fund.
Action Not Final
The action of the state advisory
board is not final, nor is informa
tion available as to whether or not
action was favorable. Under or
ders from Washington, the board
is allowed to reveal that some ac
tion has been taken on certain
projects but is not allowed to tell
what the decision is.
Plans for the new library are
still before the board and no in
formation is available as to when
action will be taken on them.
There are 165 projects involving
$91,000,000 before the board. Each
job must be considered separately,
and action on any one project may
be very slow. As originally
planned the library is to cost
Liucdiiuns rroposeu
Two locations proposed for the
library are: Thirteenth avenue in
the lot between Johnson and Con
don halls and on Kincaid street
between Condon hall and Fifteenth
avenue. The infirmary probably
will be located at the northeast
corner of Fourteenth avenue and
University street.
Members of the Oregon board
are Dr. James H. Gilbert, dean of
the school of social science; Bert
E. Haney, Portland; and R. N.
Stanfield, Baker.
Second Concert

The University of Oregon band
will offer its second concert at the
music auditorium next Sunday af
ternoon at 3 p. m., according to
John Stehn, director.
The concert will form a part of
the many campus activities in cele
bration of Homecoming week.
About 30 members of the second
group will make up the band.
With an overproduction of flute
players in the first group, two

Each of the eight graduates
from the class of ’33 in the school
of landscape Architecture found
appointments in park work, pro

upon graduation, except two who
are engaged in graduate study.
The Oregon department is one of
the two schools offering landscape
work west of the Mississippi to
have gained national recognition
in competition with the leading
schools of the East. According to
Professor F. A. Cuthbert, the es

Two years ago the curricula in
landscape architecture was ex

year course leading to the degrees
of bachelor of landscape architec
ture or bachelor of arts in land
scape architecture. The first two
years and last two years of work
are taught at the University and
the third year at Corvallis.
The first two years are similar
in subject matter to that required
of the major students in other
branches of the fine arts. The
third year is spent in studying sur
veying, soils, and courses dealing
in plants and their landscape val

are concentrated on professional

thoroughly professional course
which has more than met all of
the requirements of the American

Living Quarters
For International
Students Closed
Committee Hopes to Reopen House
Next Term; Recognition Won
Nationally by Group
Lack of students from foreign
countries on the campus has caused
the International house, which has
operated successfully for many
years, to be closed temporarily.
The organization, which is spon
sored by a board consisting of fac
, ulty members and others interest
ed, will continue the work, how
ever, and it is hoped that the
house may be reopened next term.
Mrs. H. S. Tuttle, who has served
as house chaperon for the group,
is leaving in a few days to join her
husband in New York, where he
is now attending Columbia univer
sity. She will return when the
house is reestablished.
The International house has won
national acclaim for the work it
has done in furthering good-will
among students here. Since it
was founded students of many
countries and many races have
carried on an effective campaign
for better international relations
and a better understanding among
peoples of the earth.

Schafer Will Give
Talk Concerning
Red Cross Relief
Educational Talk Will Describe
Methods by Which Plans
Are Carried Out
“The Biggest Relief Job in the
World" is the subject of a talk to
be given Wednesday evening at
7:30 in Villard hall by A. L. Scha
fer, manager of the Pacific divi
sion of the Red Cross, according to
an announcement made yesterday
by Dean Karl W. Onthank, who
made arrangements for the talk in
behalf of the University.
Last year Schafer was an act
ive member of the organization
that distributed the flour given to
charity by the United States grain
commission and that also attended
to the manufacture and distribu
tion of the surplus cotton which
was also donated to the Red Cross
by the grain commission. In addi
tion, his society, through its coun
ty secretaries, was responsible for
administering a great part of the
funds provided by the national
government for direct relief pur
poses; His speech will concern a
description of these activities,
which are considered by many au
thorities to have been the greatest
undertaking in the field of social
work in history, not excluding
wartime social service activities.
Dr. Philip A. Parsons, professor
of sociology, who is in charge of
the arrangements for Schafer’s
Wednesday night talk, emphasized
yesterday “that Schafer’s talk
will not be Red Cross propaganda
or a plea for the subscription of
funds to that organization, but
rather a purely educational talk
describing the method in which
these great social undertakings
are managed and carried out.”
Parsons further stated that the
talk will be of special interest to
students in various social science
Following Schafer’s sp e e c h
which will last until 8:30, those in
terested may remain for a round
table discussion with Schafer and
other member of the Red Cross

Former 'School Boy’ Here
Member ofPoiverful Family
Four years ago an energetic,
always smiling Japanese “school
boy” studied on the campus, be
came well known for his activities
in promoting interest in interna
tional relations. Later this “school
boy” went to work for a time in a
local cannery, went from here to
Indianapolis, where he obtained a
job with the Columbia Preserving
company, lived with a colored fam
ily while working for Proctor and
Gamble in Cincinnati, had some
experiences working in the Ford
Motor company organization, and
then attended Columbia and Chica
go universities.
Many people on the campus knew
Yoshi Otsuka, encouraged him in
his work, were delighted with his
quaint but sincere English. Few
knew that he was a member of a
family in Japan which owns and
operates a corporation capitalized
at 30,000,000 yen, which produces
one-third of all toe soya bean
sauce an important food item in
the orient, that is made in Japan.
This business has been in the fam
ily since before the time of Colum
When Eric W. Allen, dean of
the school of journalism at the
University here, and H. V. Hoyt,
dean of the school of business ad
ministration, were in the orient
last summer, they were met by
the smiling “school boy” and for
four days were royally entertained
in and around Tokyo.
No longer just a “school boy”
is Yoshi Otsuka. His “studies” in
this country are important inves
tigations of social conditions, par
ticularly of workers, and to what
extent his observations will influ
ence the attitude of his company
toward employees is not known.
Whatever he noted of labor con
ditions the visitor was deeply im
pressed by the treatment he re
ceived from Americans wherever
he happened to be. So hospitable
was this that the warm-hearted
Japanese decided when he returned
home to do all he could to recipro
cate. He organized the Overseas
People’s Educational institute, with
the purpose of furnishing hospi
tality and facilities for foreign
scholars and students visiting and
studying in Japan, to make evi
dent to these guests the genuine
warmth and good will that really
underlies the somewhat formal
Japanese attitude.
Already, the deans reported, the
