In San Francisco
Plans for the annual social sci

made last week at a meeting of the
Pacific coast regional committee
of the social science research coun
cil, according to Dr. Wayne L.
Morse, dean of the University law
school, who returned Sunday noon
from the meeting, which Was held
in Berkeley, California.
Dean Morse, who was the official
representative from the University
of Oregon, said that the theme top
ic for the conference, which will
he held in San Francisco in June,
is to be the “Control of Social
Forces." The program will be di
vided into six or eight round ta
bles, all based on the theme sub
The regional committee dis
cussed chiefly the policies to be
adopted concerning the encourage
ments of research activities on the
Pacific coast, according to Dean
Morse. They passed on several re
grants and aids, the nature of
which will be announced later.
Dr. Dan Clark of the University
of Oregon history department was
appointed chairman of the regional
subcommittee on history. Dr. L.
S. Cressman, professor of sociology
at the University, will continue as
chairman of the subcommittee on
uniform social statistics.
Report Presented
Dr. Carl L. Alsberg of Stanford
university presented the annual re
port of the meeting of the national
social science research council, held
at Franconia, New Hampshire, last
August. Dr. Alsberg is chairman
of the regional committee, which
is composed of nine members, ap
pointed by the national organiza
tion from well-known social sci
entists. Dean Morse has served on
this committee for two years, suc
ceeding Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall,
former president of this Univer
Commenting on the meeting,
Dean Morse reported that it was
the consensus of opinion of those
present that research activities
among academic men on the Pa
cific coast are being received with
great favor by eastern research
councils and foundations.
He also stated that Ronald Beat
tie, who was associated with Dean
Morse in the preparation of the
Oregon crime survey, has just com
pleted a study of court records in
Alameda county, California, which
has won favorable comment in and
around San Francisco.

Companies Cooperate
Assisted by Ernest Elmo Calk

of Edgar Kobak, John Benson and
P. L. Thompson, representing the
Advertising Federation of America,
the American Association of Ad
vertising Agencies, and the Asso

undertook the preparation of the
scenario. The picture was filmed
in the fast time of four weeks.
The expenses of the undertaking,
which included not only the prepa

a small theatre for showing it dur

Points brought out by the pic

progress in comfort and conven

not only to invention, but to in
formation; that advertising has
made possible the growth of the
periodical press, with its important
contribution to human knowledge
and the productiveness of human
life; that the newspaper, by build

production with all of its econo

attention in the library this week,
say library attendance. They are
to be found in two exhibits, one
on the main floor and the other in
the lobby of the English reserve
Grotesque, many-colored Indian
masks make up the exhibit on the
main floor. Most of them are
loaned by Mrs. Alice H. Ernst, as
sistant professor of English.
Outstanding among the carved
wooden Indian masks is one called
a wolf mask, which is about two
feet long, V-shaped, to emulate
the long, lean head of the wolf.
The eyes, teeth and nostrils are
shown in symbolic painting on the
sides of the mask. Colors used are
orange, white, green, yellow, and
Other articles in the display are
a sea cougar mask, a ghost mask,
a magic rattle, and a modern In

used by the Indians in ceremonial
dances and other religious rites.
Notes describing the articles are

Boyer Dean Here
Boyer, who is dean of the col

merly head of the department of
English at the University. Before
he came to Eugene in 1926, he
was on the English faculty of the
University of Illinois from 1911
to 1926. He graduated from
Princeton university in 1902, was
admitted to the bar in Ohio in
1904, and practiced law in Mari
etta until 1905. He resumed prac
tice in Pittsburgh in 1907 and two
years later became a Charles
Scribner fellow at his alma mater.
He then started his teaching ca

department of the American Le

American Legion convention.
The purpose of the committee is
to study the crime problem, and
to devise plans for the active par
ticipation of the American Legion
in curbing criminal endeavor. The
personnel of the committee con

Kathleen McNutt Dies
Despite Transfusions
Kathleen McNutt, former stu
dent of the University, died Sun
day at the Pacific hospital when
blood transfusion failed.
Miss McNutt had been ill for
five months with leucocythenia, a
condition resulting ftfom the lack
of red corpuscle supply. Transfu

her condition became critical last
Miss McNutt was born in Eu
gene 22 years ago. She received
her high school education at Eu
gene high school, entering the Uni
versity in the fall of 1929. She
was a member of Phi Mu social

Circulation of Condon
Largest Since April ’32
Condon reserve library had a cir
cuylation of 1223 on Thursday,
January 11, which is considered
very large for a time so early in
the term, and especially in winter
term since the fail is the busiest
time for the campus libraries.
This circulation was the larg
est since April 5, 1932, when the
library circulated 1520 books.

The Demon Reporter
Newspaper stories have been
played to death on the screen, and
new angles are certainly scarce.
In “I Cover the Waterfront,” Ben
Lyon portrays the reporter on the
waterfront beat. He has a daily
feature column, which I should say
is an indication of one of two
things: (1) that the story exagger
ated, or (2) that the reporter was
pretty good.
One thing is certain, and that is
that any reporter who could 3ass
a city editor as this one did could
afford a better place to live than
the garret portrayed, unless he
lived there for the atmosphere.
The efforts to picture the smug
gler as having a noble religious
character are a bit hard to take.
Thank goodness the reporter
isn’t constantly drowning himself
in liquor. No reporter can keep
the pace necessary in that profes
sion and drink intoxicating bever
On All-Star Productions
It is difficult to put a large
group of popular actors in the
same production and please all the
customers. The public, individual
ly, is apt to feel that his favorite
is being slighted.
In “Dinner at Eight" an attempt
is made to give all of the stars
equally important parts. The re
sult is a series of separate episodes
which finally converge upon the
dinner at eight.
Many have said that Jean Har
low stands out from the group on
the score of superior interpreta
tion of the part. The parts which
I enjoyed most were taken by so
called minor players, who in real
ity are often better and more ex
perienced than the star.
There was, first, May Robson as
the nervous cook with her hair
flying in whisps and her tongue
almost paralyzed. Then there was
Grant Mitchell with his wrinkly
stiff shirt front, who had to carry
Marie Dressler’s peke dog about
while Marie attended to other
matters. Madge Evans is, of
course, always satisfactory to me.
U. of W. Library
Getting $445,000
The University of Washington
has received appropriations
amounting to $445,000 with which
to build two new units to the cam

brought back from Seattle by M.
H. Douglass, head of the Univer
sity of Oregon library.
Douglass attended an executive
meeting of the Pacific Northwest
Library association in Seattle over
the past weekend. He is treasurer
of the association. It was during
his stay that he learned of the ap
propriations from Charles W.
Smith, librarian at the University

The present unit of the Univer

built at a cost of about $900,000.
