Southern Oregon Normal school [
team on Saturday, October 12, at r
Medford, it was announced here i
yesterday by John Warren, new ]
Oregon freshman coach. i
Addition of the Sons encounter j
gives the Ducklings a four-game £

Ducklings will have two weeks’
rest before meeting the Oregon
State college rooks on Hayward

Harada to Arrive
Jiro Harada, one of the fore
most oriental art authorities of
the world, will arrive on the Ore- j
,gon campus September 20 to
spend six months as a professor
and lecturer, it has been revealed
by Burt Brown Barker, vice-presi-1
dent of the University who has'
been largely responsible for bring- j
ing the expert here.
Oregon was one of six institu
tions in the whole of America
chosen by the Society for Inter
national Cultural Relations of
Japan for such a professorship.
While here, Mr. Harada is expected
to center his activities around the
Murray Warner Museum of Ori
ental art. This collection is one of
the finest of such art in the
United States and will undoubtedly
furnish much material for many of
Mr. Harada's lectures which will
cover Japanese art from a period
before the introduction of Budism
in 552 A. D. to modern times.
Mr. Harada has been commis
sioner of the Imperial Household
Museum in Japan where the valu
able works of that nation are kept.
He has previously been in the
United States, having studied at j
the UniverSity of California in
1915, as well as having attended
the Panama-Pacific exposition in
San Francisco as the Imperial
Government commissioner. From
1908 to 1916 he was a faculty
member of the National college at

Two newcomers -to -he University of Oregon coaching staff are
'Honest John” Warren, freshman football mentor and “Hobby” Hcbson,
•asketball and baseball chief. From their teams will come color and
ight. From their proteges will come stars of tomorrow.

my lunch on that day and hurried
across the campus for the scene of
the punishments. Before I got there
I saw that plenty was happening.
As I got to the locale of the affair,
I saw one of my friends, a kid who
had just entered school spring term,
tossed over the stone railing of the
bridge into the “cooling waters” of

down. There was another friend,

The University of Oregon and
one of its leading professors, E. E.
DeCou, who is head of the depart
ment of mathematics, were feat
ured in the August issue of “Town
| and County Review," one of the
widely circulated English maga
zines published in London.
On the cover of the magazine
itself appears a striking picture
of Johnson hall, the imposing ad
ministration building which is
situated in the center of the cam
pus. The article devoted to Pro
fessor DeCou deals with the life
and career of the noted educator
since coming to the Unievrsity in
1902. Biographies of several other
1 American educators also appear
I in the issue of the magazine.
| Of Professor DeCou, “Town and
j County Review” reads in part:
"The life of this eminent American
professor has been given primarily
to the teaching of college young
people, taut his influence in relig
ious, social and recreational fields
would be difficult to estimate. Cer
tainly it will survive many college
generations of Americans.”
A bigger program for you this
year as a member of the Asso
ciated Students. Loyalty plus val
I ue received. Be a part of Oregon,
