EUGENE, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1935 NUMBER 24 ASOSC President Pays Oregon Good Will Visit Graham Offers Homecoming Cooperation Plans Laid to Continue Good Feeling, Friendly Rivalry in Relations Between Two Schools Before a meeting in Villard hall yesterday of University of Oregon student leaders, a tall, broad-shoul dered good will ambassador from Oregon State, ASOSC President Jack Graham extended greetings from that school and offered co operation in making this year’s homecoming a success. Graham, speaking slowly and in comfortable tones, assured those at the meeting that the extent of the rivalry between both schools was far overdrawn. He said that at a proposed Oregon State convo cation next Wednesday every ef fort was going to be made to as sure an understanding with the students of the real, desirable at titude of visiting Oregon Staters who would, he declared, “conduct themselves as ladies and gentle men.” Boyer Extends Welcome Welcoming Graham, Dr. C. Val entine Boyer, president of the Uni versity, assured the group that “it is impossible to take all of the bar barism out of youth,” but that it should be restrained by a common sense of right and wrong. Dr. Boyer cited the relationships as they exist between Yale and Princeton. "The two schools, while the bitterest of enemies on the ath letic field, conducted themselves as hosts and guests on these occa sions,” Dr. Boyer said. “There was little unchecked, rampant enthu siasm that resulted in vandalism and savage demonstrations. "It is of great importance to the two schools that they do not break down the pleasant relationship that has been built up in the state in the last few years.” Graham, Blais Speak Both Jack Graham and Jim Blais who spoke on behalf of the Oregon student body, were anxious that the student bodies' of both schools look upon some of the cheap, narrow actions of individ uals as not being representative of the thoughts and attitudes of the whole student bodies. Jack Campbell, chairman of the rally committee, told of elaborate plans for a rally to be held Friday night. Jim Blais entertained sug gestions for a possible rally assem bly prior to the game but nothing was definitely decided.

The experiment is being conduct ed by the psychology department, through the cooperation of Colonel Murphy, head of the ROTC. It will continue during the next two weeks until Mr. Martin has given about 100 tests. The subject gets two trials.

Huestis, professor of zoology, at the research shack on the cam pus. The mice are being bred for the purpose of obtaining unnatural hereditary results. Field mice are being used exclusively because they are tamer than the ordinary house mice. The chief difference between the two species is that the field mice have large ears and eyes while the ordinary mouse has small ears and eyes in comparison. Much work accompanies the ex perimental process; the mice must be fed, their cages must be cleaned every two weeks, they must be kept free from disease which spreads rapidly among them. These mice are classified as to color, former breed, and size.
