    Students Told
Of Conditions
In Latin Clime
Spanish Class Gels Letter
From Alumnus
Language Skill, Suitable Business
Connections Necessary in
Foreign Service
Advice to students who are in
terested in traveling or getting
employment in South America was
given in a letter from Dick Hath
away, '08, in response to queries of
first year Spanish students con
cerning conditions in the Latin
countries. Hathaway has been a
representative of Warren Brothers
Construction company in Chile and
Colombia for several years.
According to Hathaway, the two
essentials necessary for entrance
into foreign service are a thorough
knowledge of the language and
suitable business connections. In
regard to the latter, Hathaway
stated, “The reputation of a well
known firm means much in South
America, and access and entry are
assured you if you are the repre
sentative. If you come to these
countries on your own, the obsta
cles to overcome are heavy . . .
It will take several years to clear
the way besides the expenditure of
your money and time.’’
Many Languages Used
Complete knowledge of the
Spanish language, especially a flu
ent speaking ability, is necessary,
according to Hathaway, who stated
that there is keen competition
among the different nationalities
in South America. “The Germans,
French, Italian, and British for the ,
most part are all better linguists
than we, and It is not at all uncom
mon to meet a foreigner who han
dles three to five languages nicely.
This ability needs no expounding
to realize the benefits that accrue
to such a man.’’
Hathaway went on to explain
the best approaches to positions in
the Latin countries. “You first
have to become members of some
well established intern a t i o n a 1
house, and then work toward the
foreign end, of course keeping
right up to the minute on the lan
Work Is Limited
The field of work in South
America for women is somewhat
limited, according to Hathaway.
American executives generally em
ploy native girls as secretaries
rather than Americans. “The two
principal businesses which use
women in the foreign fields,” he I
stated, “are the banks and diplo-:
matic circles . . . My advice to
girls who are set on foreign serv
ice then would be to first establish
connections with a U.S.A. interna
tional banking institution with the
idea of being sent to foreign lands;
and, secondly, to enter the United
States government diplomatic ser
Any student who wishes more
definite information concerning op
portunities in South America
should write to Hathaway, who
said in his letter that he will be
glad to explain anything that he
can. His address may be secured
from Dr. L. O. Wright, professor
of Romance languages.

“Ed's Coed” was hailed in 1929
as a marvelous campus produc
tion, a huge crowd paid $1.50 a
seat to see its premier showing,
and it traveled successfully about
the state for a long time.
As revived by Alpha Delta Sig
ma, it still has its dramatic sec
onds, but. its comic moments far
outnumber them. Originally funny,
the picture is made funnier to 1934
eyes by the abbreviated 1929 skirts,
and it promises to be a riot with
manual sound effects added by
“Chick” Burrow and his assistant
noise producers.

Not Seen
Can’t find anything about “I’ll
Tell the World,” except that Lee
Tracy is back in newspaper role. j
Roger Pryor is a rival reporter on
another syndicate.
Alas! The newspaper business
won't have any mysteries pretty
soon, just like Greta Garbo.
Also Not Seen
Says Vanity Fair about “Gam
bling Lady”:
“Barbara Stanwyck, one of the
best actresses in Hollywood, in one
of the worst pictures. This time,
she is cast as a female Arnold
Rothstein, whose games, however,
are always on the up-and-up. As
usual, she gives a sigularly honest,
straightforward performance, but]
it is too bad she can't get a picture
worthy of her talent.”
Says Photoplay, in substance,
she’s a straight player, but when
she marries into Park Avenue she
finds that the girls play with a
stacked deck.
Says Vanity Fair about “A Mod
ern Hero,”
“Richard Barthelmess, jowls and
all, brutally miscast as a young
circus performer who is a devil
with the women.—The credit sheet
says that the film was directed by
G. B. Pabst, the great German di
rector, but I hate to believe it.”

compared to the rest of the Pacific
In analyzing his figures Con
stance says, “T h e implication
seems unavoidable that the Uni
versity of Oregon and Oregon
State college are now under a
special handicap in attracting and
retaining students. Recent reor
ganization and unsettled condi
tions in the Oregon state system
of higher education, with resultant
difficulty in making adequate high
school contacts, must be blamed
to a large extent. Evidently edu
cation must search within itself to
find reasons for its success or fail
ure, and confidence and other in
tangible factors may be of prime
Constance’s survey, with an
analysis, was published in full in
the April 14 number of School and
Society. Rae prepared a table, on
which he has offered no comments.
Oregon’s decrease far exceeds
that of any other state, its closest
approach being North Dakota,
with a decrease of 19.2 percent.
Only six other states in the entire
country had decreases of over 15
percent, while more than half did
not approach 10 percent decrease.
The decrease came in Oregon in
spite of the fact that the drop in
business activity was actually less
in this state than the national
average for the two-yep.r period.
Business dropped all over the coun
try on an average of 31.3 percent,
.while in Oregon it was 28 percent.
The Oregon figures are also sig
nificant because even with the
huge drop in this state, the three
Pacific states considered as a re
gional division of the country,
showed a drop of but 9.3 percent
in college enrollment. Washington
showed a decrease of 10.8 percent,
slightly more than the national
I average, while California showed a
j decrease of but 4.5 percent in the
I two years. California at present
; has 30,020 college and university
, students, while Oregon has but
| 5,481.
Loss at Eugene, Corvallis
Rae’s figures show that practi
cally all of the decrease for this
J state came at the University of
Oregon and Oregon State college.
In 1929-30 the University had 2993
students, and the state college had
3430. In the fall term of 1933-34
the University had dropped to
2122, or a decrease of 29 percent,
and the state college had enrolled
but 1960. or a decrease of nearly
43 percent. Linfield showed a gain
from 332 to 420 for the period.
Reed college increased from 364 to
: 432. Willamette dropped slightly
| from 5T9 to 527, and Pacific uni
! versity dropped from 232 to 175.
! During the live - year period
studied by Rae, two coast institu
tions, University of California at
Los Angeles and University of
California showed gains of nearly
10 percent; University of Wash
ington lost practically none, or.
only 3 students, to be exact, while j
the University of Idaho gained sixj
students. Stanford lost less j
than six percent, University of
Southern California and State Col
lege of Washington lost approxi
mately 15 percent.
Constance's figures also show
the two large state supported in
stitutions the heaviest losers in
Oregon during the past two years.
In this short time the University
lost 27.8 percent of its enrollment,
the state college 36.8, while four
other non-state-supported colleges
in Oregon dropped but 7.5 percent.

Professors Find
Relics of Indians
On Weekend Trip
Skeletons, Arrow Points, Spears
Discovered on Expedition
To Lake District
Fragments of three skeletons,
metates and mullers, flat stones
for grinding corn, and dozens of
spear and arrow points were found
by Warren D. Smith, geography
professor; L. S. Cressman, profes
sor of sociology; and Ray Force
and Howard Stafford, University
students, during a trip through the
Albert, Sumner, and Silver lake
district of Oregon last weekend.
The expedition started when re
ports of Indian burials were re
ceived through a shepherd in the
district. A search along the Albert
rim for these burials proved fruit
less, but when the party investigat
ed the shore along the lake, it
found ancient house-sites and mor
tars ground out of solid rock. Many
broken mortars also lay scattered
On Sunday an old Indian village
site 10 miles into the desert north
of the highway was investigated.
Here they found many acres cov
ered with remains of arrow and
spear points. It was here also that,
the skeletons were found entirely
exposed. Parts of the cranius and
one femur bone were brought back
for study.
The discoveries are of vast im
portance to the study of ancient
history in Oregon. The remains
are believed to be of the old Paiute
Indian tribes in the Northwest.
Campus Blossoms, Flowers
Brought Out by Recent Rain
Blossoms on the campus nearly
leaped out of their buds to greet
the recent ram, and should the
sun shine in the next few days
flower lovers will view a beauti
ful spectrum of colors, rivaled only
by Professor Stafford's flurescence
lamp. Between the "pioneer" and
Friendly hall are the highly orna
mental evergreen shrubs with their
bell shaped blossoms of purple,
scarlet, pink, orange, yellow, and
white shades all combined to make
a very attractive display of hues.
This well formed shrub is the Rho
dodendron. The purple blossoms
are already in bloom, making their
debut one month earlier than
Another tree that is attracting
attention because of its handsome
foliage and perfect form is the
Fringe tree, which shades the
drinking fountain in front of the
main library. One will recognize
it with its snowy white colored tas

One of the most popular orna
mental evergreen shrubs, located
at many places on the campus,
especially on the east side of “hel
lo lane,” is the Japanese snowball.
It has snow-white ball-shaped blos
soms. The fruit becomes decorative
after the blossoms have been shed.
While the recent rain brought
many new blossoms to the campus
it will also take many away. Blos
soms of the Weigela tree, a .tall,
slender plant located between
Friendly hall and the Journalism
building, will go. It has yellow,
pink, red, and white flowers.
