    Calvin S. Hall
Tells of Tests
On White Rats
Importance of Inner
Needs Is Shown by
Experiments with lower animals
Would seem to indicate that inter
nal needs determine the direction
the activities will take more than
external stimulus does, Calvin S.
Hall, assistant professor of psy
chology, pointed out in delivering
z. paper on his experiments with
white rats in Condon hall las'
night. Hall was presented by Sig
ma Xi, national science honorary
Two factors which Hall consid
ered in the determination of behav
ior were external stimuli and in
ternal conditions or needs.
Walls Surround Kats
Barriers must be surmounted to
satisfy the need or needs. The an
imals’ behavior is always determ
ined by the correlation between ex
ternal and internal conditions
Therefore, in his experiments Hall
look a hungry white rat and placed
him inside of a circular wall of
tin eight feet in diameter. Be
cause of other forces which arc
sometimes considered as instinc
tive, the rat circled, the wall and
•avoided the open space.
When food was placed in the
-middle of the area, the rats took
varying periods of time to find it,
the time decreasing daily until the
rat went straight to the food.
When Hall complicated the sit
uation by surrounding the food
with a wire fence, hungry rats
which had qualified in the first ex
periment by reaching the food in
three seconds and rats which had
been fed and also qualified were
used. The hungry rats continued
to circle the fence after the food
had been removed for a longer pe
riod than the well-fed rats did
when the food was actually within
the fence. From this experiment
Hall has concluded that internal
needs are stronger in determining
behavior than are external stimu
Maladjustment was found in a
few animals where conditions en
abled them to reach the food by
simple movements. This problem,
which confronts psychiatrists in
human cases, Hall solved by in
creasing the internal need or hun

Where Supreme Court Made Now Famous Ruling
The decision of vast import for which the business world tensely awaited—the U. S. Supreme Court
ruling on the sold clause cases affecting $100,000,000,000 in government and private contracts—was
handed down Monday in this room, where the nine justices of the highest tribunal in the land sit back

Wilhelmina Gerot, Mary Nelson,
Betty Tubbs, and Frances Mayes,
members of the women’s public
discussion group, left yesterday for
Seattle, where they will hold a
number of joint symposiums with
speakers from the University of
Washington, it was announced.
They will be accompanied by their
coach, James A. Carrell.
“What Form of Public Regula

Adopted?” is the question which
will be presented before a number
of audiences by speakers from each
school. The discussion will exam
ine the effect of moving pictures

Dean Scholz declared that usually
it creates an emotional situation
and undermines the man’s self
"Be frank with one another and
be able to give and take sincere
criticisms,” the speaker urged,
“but control the thnigs you say.
Thoughtless sarcasm piles up from
time to time and is magnified when
any tense situation arises. Consider
your remarks before you say
An honesty of attitudes and the
allowance of freedom of develop
ments were urged by the speaker
to avoid monotony in marriage.
Non-restriction of natural tenden
cies for individuality in a person
was urged as was an avoidance of
similarity of thought and action in
every respect by both parties ot
the marriage.
For those black moments that
are natural interludes in marriage
Dean Scholz prescribed as the best
antidote a good sense of humor.

A unity of attitudes toward

marital unity was also emphasized.
Additional factors on the list
were sincere and honest ardor and
frequent separation. “When a
couple is separated from meals,
afternoon or evenings, frequently,”
Dean Scholz said, “there comes a
realization of the value of (the
other, an appreciation of the qual
ities endowed in the mate.”
Thei’e is little chance that marri
age and the family will disappear,
in the estimation of Dean Scholz.
The alternatives to marriage, she
said, are short-lived in their satis

Willett Talk
Speaker Declares Skill Is
Less Important Than
Technical skill may be a big
factor in acquiring a job, but per
sonality is what enables a woman j
to hold it, declared Grace Willett,
women’s personnel director at Ant
iock college, during a discussion
Tuesday under the sponsorship of
the vocations study group of the j
campus Y.W.C.A.
The ability to make her fellow
workers comfortable, her sensitiv
ity to all kinds of situations, which
included accepting criticism gra
ciously, are invaluable to the
woman who would have a career
after college, whether she chooses
merely to fill in the time between
college and marriage, whether she
intends to devote her life to a
career, or combine it with marri
Certain occupations combine bet
ter with marriage than others
Miss Willetts said, and tend to do
away with the old idea that women
in business are competing with
men. In the fields of teaching,
nursing, and social work, there is
plenty of room at the top. Jour
nalism and many other occupa
tions are suitable to a woman only
if she has exceptional ability and
unusual drive, although that field
is already overcrowded. However,
if she feels unhappy in any but
her chosen career, and has the
ability and perseverance, no field
is crowded to any woman.
Almost any field of work may
be entered by the woman who is
an expert typist, even if she knows
no shorthand, and any activities
which have interested her in col
lege may prove important.

Play Productions
Presentations Thursday;
Free Admission
All University students and fac
ulty are invited to attend the two
one-act plays which are being pre
sented this Thursday afternoon at
4 o'clock in the Guild theater. No
admission will be charged.
The two plays being produced
are “The Heritage” by James Stew
art Knaap and “Storm in a Wash
tub,” translated by Guy Wern
ham. The former is a semi-trag
edy dealing with the conflict be
tween city and country life which
inevitably results when a rural boy
receives a city education and then
must return home to the farm.
“Storm in a Washtub” is a 14th
century medieval farce centering
around the well-known theme of
the hen-pecked husband who final
ly asserts himself rand becomes
master of his household.
The cast for “The heritage” in
cludes: A1 Glazier as the elderly
farmer, Tom Cole as the tramp,
Mary Webster as the feminine ro
mantic interest, Jeannette Turner
as the farmer’s wife, and Donald
Parks as the farmer lad, Jimmy.
Those participating in "Storm in a
Washtub" are Betty Jeffers as the
wife, Bill Ireland as Jacquinot, the
husband, and Doris Holmes as the
Both plays are being directed by
students from the play production
class. Alan Wiesner is in charge

Asbury Pictures Sinful Life
Of Frisco’s 'Barbary Coast’
A story of that district of San |
Francisco in which you write your
own rules is “The Barbary Coast,”
by Herbert Asbury. Tracing its
violent history from the gold rush
days until 1917, when the Barbary
Coast was abolished, Asbury’s
wrork presents the picture of the
district as it really was, not as it
was popularized in song and story,
Mrs. E. B, Belknap, Co-op libra
rian said today.
Liberally illustrated with photo
graphs and early pen and ink
drawings, the book deals with al
most every phase of life in that
wide open section. Almost all of
these phases of life were tinctured
with corruption. In writing this
book, Asbury has gone the plain,
unvarnished truh one better, his
truth isn't even sand-papered.
Asbury's account of the early
Jays includes the story of the ex
ploits of Joaquin Murieta, the in
famous bandit, and describes his
ignominious end. Among other
things, the book deals at some
length with the political corruption
that allowed such a den of iniquity
to continue, the ineffectual efforts
of the authorities to clean it up,
and the assorted vice and general
skullduggery that was practiced
there, Librarian Belknap said.
One of the last illustrations in
the book is a cartoon published at
the time of the clean-up. It shows
a heap of ashes representing the
Barbary Coast, and rising from it

ing gown, holding a basket of con
fetti; and representing, oddly
enough, the spirit of good clean
‘Gilded Lily’ Now
Seen at McDonald
By Cynthia Liljeqvist
Stenographer Colbert sits on a
park bench with MGM’s gold strike
of the year, MacMurray, every
Thursday night while he talks
about the relative values of pop
corn as opposed to peanuts. The
conversation sounds like any Col
lege Side dialogue so we shan't
repeat it here.
Colbert confides her desire for
a lover who will make her satisfied
being nothing more than a Lizzie
Glutz. She finds him in a subway
on the receiving end of a cop’s fist
and their love is rapid and simple
until he, Milland, sails for England
and Colbert discovers he is landed
nobility traveling incognito. She
believes he was playing old English
tricks on her heart. More park
benching, speculating, and stenog
rapher’s dumps. End of scene one.
Tabloid newsboy MacMurray
scoops the escaping voyageurs and
prints nobody Colbert saying “No”
to old aristocracy. Notority fol
lows for her. She shrinks effective
ly from the publicity of the “no
girl” but scores inadvertently in a
night club. Then she awakes like
Bryon one morning.
Bickering interlude: Would a
man like “God-send” MacMurray
drag his love through mucky pub
licity. Answer: Yes. Otherwise
clean pored Colbert couldn’t have
done the best acting in the play,
namely, the night club episode
where she skillfully hides her tech
nique and reaches a good comic ef
fect. Answer two. Hollywood
couldn't possibly have left out the
dazzle garb. End of scene two.
More benching while MacMurray
tries to banish the ghost of Lizzie
Celebrity trip to London follows.
Colbert resumes love for Milland
but senses when he suggests a so
journ in quaint old country inn
“for a week only” that he thinks of
her in terms of good advertising.
Hasty retreat to America, to
benching, to good guy MacMurray.
Advertised widely as the suc
cessor to “It Happened One Night”
the picture was obviously over
strained in trying to recapture the
surprise element of its four star
predecessor. The walls of Jericho
scene still has it. It looked like the
director thumb-tacked originality
onto the film at regular intervals,
consequently the show jumped
clean out of the realm of probabil
ity and became a charming farce.
We are turning over cinema
blurbing to Ruth McClain. Yours
