The Scene Changes
TT was just nineteen days ago that the ivy-covered
buildings and the solid, quiet trees of the campus
blinked in the face of the rising sun and looked down
once more on the moving figures of students.
“Ah, this is more like it,” Villard might have
said, “That infernal, sticky silence of summer was
getting on my nerves. You know I was just telling
Deady the other clay that- , Well, I’m blowcd!
What’s that!” And just then a freshman hove into
Nineteen days ago, there blow onto the campus
from the north, east, south, and west hordes of
young men and young women. Alert, energetic, all
shined-up models of the 1934 freshman airily roamed
about the campus acting as if they had in their
possession a first mortgage on the Administration
building. They were on the crest of a sparkling wave,
and they loved it!
But the gods of fate were cruel, oh so cruel,
and these blissful freshmen tumbled from the heights
to the depths of the neophyte. There followed a de
luge of house work, sinister oak paddles, study hours
and tin pants. The soft gurgling hellos became barks
of derision. And the freshman, like a hunted thing
—jumped when someone popped his gum.
But ’neath the ruffled exterior beat a steady
heart, and the freshman doggedly started back up.
Now, on the nineteenth day, we find peering faintly
through that unconscious expression a gleam of
understanding. Lost is the slightly egocentric mien
of the high school senior. Gone is the childish con
ception of an education as being a dull routine con
sisting of stupidly memorizing irrelevant material
in order to sprout wings and mingle with the "intell
igentsia.” Dancing dimly before the searching eyes
of the freshman is a picture of education as an “art
To some freshmen, the picture will never clear.
He will be the simple, useless senior. But to some
the picture will stand in bold relief ore many days
go by. To him education will be a “criterion for
human excellence” and not a measure for a shallow
classification of persons in the social strata.
The Class of—
rpWO weeks from this date, the campus will be
the host of the returning old grads. Kor a brief
week-end they will turn from their ordinary busi
ness affairs and revisit the University that for
four years sheltered and taught them. To many the
surroundings will be in some degree changed, the
faces that throng the campus unfamiliar and alien.
Nearly every old grad thinks fondly of the years
he spent here anil cherishes in his heart an affec
tionate memory for old Oregon. Yet when he returns
to the campus, he cannot help but feel a little out of
place, a little foreign. He has no common bond with
these youngsters who have taken his place. He feels
the unconscious wall that rises between youth and
the older man.
There is no need for this reserve between us.
Remember, these men have a warm spot in thier
hearts for Oregon, or they would not be here. They
have faith in us, and they support us loyally in our
So it behooves us, when they arrive, to greed them
on the street with a friendly smile, to see that the
atmosphere of welcome pervades the campus, and
to make them feel that Oregon still recalls them.
For remember, a few more years and you too will
be an old grad, new faces will supplant yours, and
you in turn will long for that welcome; the open
hand and the friendly smile that say, “We remem

The Passing Show
Brain Trust Dissolves
OUIETLY, unobtrusively, without a word of pub
licity, during the last half year college pro
fessors have been leaving Washington for their lec
ture halls and desks in a “brain exodus” which is
estimated to have drained over one-half of the orig
inal number of college professors drafted by the ad
ministration for governmental posts in 1932 and
The movement seems to substantiate the asser
tion that the era of the “Brain Trust” is at an end.
Critics and surface observers have pointed to
this baelc-to-the-classroom movement as indicative
of the failure of university professors in the actual
application of theories which they so ably expounded
before their students.
But it is interesting to note that the colleges
themselves are responsible for the recall of their pro
fessors. Recently they have become extremely re
luctant to have the cream of their teaching staffs
always "away on leave.”
Yale has decided to dock professors for the
time they spend in Washington. Wisconsin plucked
Chairman Garrison out of the Labor Board and
frowns on further leaves of absence. Harvard and
Columbia are beginning to take the same stand.
The colleges are getting hardboiled about lend
ing their men.
Furthermore, the majority of the “brain trust
ers” were never meant to become permanent fix
tures on Capitol Hill.
Their work in "breaking the ground” for the
new administration successfully terminated, the re
turning professors are deserving of their feeling of
having finished a “job well done.”—California
Nice Oozy News
f I ’lit; news sped from the corners of the earth
-*- yesterday to fuse on the front page of a local
metropolitan newspaper into an unconscious par
aphrase of our mad civilization. The leading stories
were concerned in two instances with murder; in
another with a kindnaped woman.
One thousand men in Hungary wanted to kill
themselves and sabotage a mine in hapless mass
protest against society. China signified her intention
of adding fuel to the burning struggle in interna
Further down the page the news was more as
suring. A 60-hour transcontinental train schedule
was announced and plans for a trans-Paeific air
line were revealed.
And that is our “civilization," with a vicious lag
between society and technology that seems ever to
increase. Someday that lag will become intolerable
and then scientists will lay aside their precision in
struments, their micrometers and log tables and test
tubes. They will lay it all aside and apply their
methods to man himself, until they learn how we
may prevent hunger and murder and greed and in

less than (10 or 30 or -10 hours but no mentally de
ranged damn fool will shove a sawed-off shotgun
in the train window and turn on the heat; mothers
may let their children run out to play without fear
of kidnapers. One will not be able to ride a light
beam to Europe, but raw materials and produce will
be making a slower trip, to the common benefit of
the whole world. Stanford Daily.

Early Transcients on the Faculty !
Ey FREDERIC S. DUNN
rjpHE University’s teaching force
of today is so huge that the
faculty folk often come and gc
with little attendant publicity. An
addition here, a subtraction there
and the pendulum is not usually
aware of any alteration in its mo
mentum. In contrast, we are in
clined to imagine our first faculty
has having continued an unbrok
en unit over a great period of time
particularly as one of that orig
inal group survived into our owr
! day after half a century of activ
The nucleus of our original fac
I ulty, it is true, did maintain a
i most laudable tenure of an aver
! age of 20 years, though several
were already white in the service
Yet, v/ithin a space of five years
the University acquired and losl
two notable men, one cf whom re
mained but three years and the
other two years only.
The former of these was Thom
as M. Gatch, in history and Eng
lish literature, who was elected tc
the faculty in 1879, to resign ir
1881 in order to accept executive
and administrative offices in othei
institutions. His abilities were
especially prominent in the lane
grant colleges of the Pacific north
west, in both which he served as
president. Already venerable ir
years, he was called to the helrr
of Oregon Agricultural college, a;
it was then known in 1897, anc
rounded out a splendid decennium
I The second of these early tran
| sients on our faculty was elected to
j the vacancy created by Professor
j Catch's resignation. Charles E.
Lambert, professor of mental phil
osophy and English literature, a
spectacularly .brilliant intellectual,
fairly captured the campus with
his magnetic oratory. I recall the
j profound impression made by his
i address at the planting of '82's
class tree, close to the southwest
corner of Deady hall.
But Professor Lambert allowed
an almost fanatic religious trend
to overbalance discretion. During
his second year, this unfortunate
penchant so impaired his useful
ness that the regents wrere com
pelled to ask for his resignation. I
afterward heard that he and his
family were rescued from an island
in the Willamette river, where he
had established himself in abso
lute destitution, under the faith
that all needs would be provided
by divine intervention.
These two successive resigna
tions opened the way for two men
who fortunately were of perma
nent tenure and for that reason
are often classed with the first ap
pointments made by the board,
John Straub who was promoted
from a tutorship in 1880 and Benj.
J. Hawthorne who came from the
faculty of Oregon Agricultural col
lege in 1884.

“The University's Early Tutorial
By DICK WATKINS
The best news that has broken
in this line in many a day, is the
announcement that RAY NOBLE,
the famous British bandsman, who
sells more records in the U. S.
than any of our own bands, has
arrived in New York to gather to
gether an orchestra with which
to tour the states, and is now en
gaged in broadcasting programs
in the East and will shortly be
heard out here in the Far West
over the NBC hook-up.
IVbv'h NOBLE first, began to re
cord several years ago, his unique
orchestration immediately at
tracted attention and then when
he composed such sweet tunes as
“Love Locked Out,” "My Song
Goes Round the World,” “The Very
Thought of You,” and many other
international hits, his fame as a
purveyo r of delicious music
brought him offers from loading
cities all over the world. However,
he has steadfastly refused to leave
the British Isles even in the face
of more lucrative engagements,
but now, realizing what a tremen
dous popularity he has acquired in
this country, by proxy, he finally
decided to come over here and
cash in on it, so here he is and
here’s hoping we will soon be able
to hear him in this neck of the

“The Moment I Saw Y'ou.”

THE GOAT WOMAN
Synopsis: Albert and Lu go into
the heart of the forest.
Albert stilled his emotions as
he watched the torrid sun beat
upon the melting mouth of Lu. He
sighed by her side. A warm breeze
blew up. The explosion rocked Al
bert into the slumber of a tooth
“Stop biting your fingernails,’’
garullped Albert to the babe.
“You thap,” lisped Lu, slyly
slinking in the side-door of the
slumber, "where have you bent?’’
Albert was bent over the table.
He bent over the bookcase—then
he bent over a few iron rods,
breaking some of them.
It was then that he saw Lu as
she really was, a beautiful, vibrant
violet. Her eyes glistened like red
apples. Her golden hair was un
ravelled, laying in great tresses
on her dark luscious back.
He swept toward her. He
swept passed her. Then he dusted
Albert took as his wife lazy Lu.
Finally the stork blessed the little
couple. But that was too much for
Albert. He took the money, and
gave Lu the heir.

found that the manager of such
an agency usually is of the type
known as a “name and address

Miss Janet Smith, of the Univer
sity employment service, repre
sents something so distinct and re
freshingly different that we can't
help admiring and respecting her.
In the weeks just previous to en
roliment, Miss smitn received
scores of pitiful letters from pros
pective students pleading for some
kind of work to make their educa
tion possible. Some came person
ally, and she listened sympatheti
cally to each. She made few prom
ises, but kept those she made.
But the point to be stressed is
this: Janet Smith spent several
hours a day out hunting jobs for
her charges. She literally can
vassed the city in search of board
and- room jobs and little bits of
work so that she would not disap
point those who had placed so
much trust in her. Never dis
heartened by the increasingly
heavy demands made upon the
University employment bureau,
Miss Smith kept plugging away
until she had secured jobs for a
surprisingly large number of stu
