Museum Displays
Art Treasures
Reproductions of Famous
Japanese Paintings Show
Art Trend
Reproductions of Japanese mas
terpieces from the thirteenth cen
tury to the present day are now
on display in the Oriental art mu
seum and will be up until the end
of winter term. These reproduc
tions were made by Otsuka of To
kio and were brought here by Jiro
Harada, lecturer in Oriental art, to
be presented to the museum.
Originals Are Treasured
They are the actual size of the
originals and are reproduced on the
same kind of paper or silk on
which the original is painted. Ac
cording to Mr. Harada, the mas
terpieces are so well reproduced
that some of them are difficult to
distinguish from the originals. The
originals, most of which are con
sidered national treasures, are
possessed by ancient temples, pri
vate collections, and public insti
tutions throughout Japan.
Biographies Given
A biography of the artist ap
pears with each work. A careful
study of the exhibit, said Mr. Ha
rada, would enable one to get a
general survey of the development
of Japanese painting of the last
few centuries.
The museum is open Wednesday
and Friday afternoons from 2 to 4
o'clock and Sunday from 3 to 5

Karl Onthank
Home Again
Dean of Personnel Will
Leave Today to Take
Over State NY A
Karl W. Onthank, dean of per
sonnel at the University and re
cently appointed administrator for
NYA in Oregon, returned yester
day from Washington, D. C., where
he has been the past month con
ferring on his new position. He
will leave for Portland today-to
take active control of Oregon NYA
According to present plans, Mr.
Onthank will divide his time be
tween his administrative duties in
connection with the NYA and his
present job as dean of personnel.
Coordination Needed
Most of the task facing him now,
he said, is that of coordinating ex
isting federal aid services such as
WPA with the NYA. Since the
latter is only temporary, with
funds enough to operate only until
July 1, it is necessary that some
arrangements be made to care for
those under its supervision in the
event that the project is scrapped
by the administration.
The National Youth Administra
tion, according to Dean Onthank,
is carrying on a program of aid
for college and high school stu
dents in need of money to continue
their education and for youths out
of school who have no jobs and
whose families are on relief.
'Explains Set-up
For the former, part-time jobs
are provided which will pay at
least a portion of their expenses.
This type of relief has been carried
on for the past year under various
agencies. For the latter the pro
gram is two-fold and is just begin
ning to be developed, the dean ex
Under the present plan young
men and women are given voca
tional training through night
schools and extension services and
are assisted in getting jobs where
there is a chance. Where there is
no opportunity for employment,
NYA endeavors to provide work of
some sort so the estimated 5,000,
000 unemployed youth of America
do not have to remain idle, he de
Makes Inspection Tour
On his way home from Wash
ington, Mr. Onthank stopped at va
rious cities throughout the United
States to inspect and familiarize
himself with NYA set-ups. Among
the cities he visited were Louisville,
St. Louis, and San Francisco.
While in St. Louis Dean On
thank was elected vice-president of
the American College Personnel
association, whose meeting he at
tended from February 19 to 23.
During his trip across the con
tinent Dean Onthank visited the
Tennessee Valley project, where a
former student of the University,
Paul Agar, is assistant controller.
Toastmaster Club
Names New Heads
Richard McBee and Albert Kauf
man were authorized to reorganize
the Toastmaster club, a group for
both independent and fraternity
men, at an open meeting Thursday.
The club might be a means of
uniting the independents, McBee
said yesterday. It will be limited to
men but not to independents, he
said. McBee pledged the support of
the boys in case the independent
girls wish a similar organization.
Tonight’s meeting at 7:30 will be
presided over by the newly-ap
pointed chairmen, and the discus
sion will be political parties of
independent campus organizations.

ASU Opens Survey
Of Student Labor
Campus Wage Scale Will
Be Compared to Labor
Union Standards
First steps toward an investi

ditions in comparison to labor un
ion wage standards were taken
last night at the special meeting of
the University of Oregon chapter
of the American Student union in
Gerlinger hall.
The Oregon campus project is a
unit in a national survey to be con
ducted by the union to determine
the position of the working stu
dent nationally.
Seeks to Improve Conditions
If wages are low in particular
occupations, the union desires to
raise them and to place them on a
standard scale, it was declared.
The chapter decided to work
hand in hand with the Oregon
Committee for Peace and Freedom
in pushing a final petition drive
for optional military to secure the
remainder of the goal of 1000 stu
dent signatures, 600 of which have
already been presented to the fac

Recovering From Cuts
Warren Smith Jr., son of Dr.
Warren D. Smith, geologist, is re
covering from the bad facial cuts
which he received on the skiing ex
pedition at Odell Lake last Sunday.
Warren fell going down the ski
slide and caught the tip of his ski
in his nose ripping it and part of his
face. Dr. O. F. Gullion gave him
first aid at the time and took 4 or
5 stitches in the cut when they
returned to Eugene. The cut is
said to be very uncomfortable but
not serious, and will leave only a
small scar. Warren is a junior at
University high school.
From a microscopical examina

a French scientist claims he can
tell the kind of work in which the
man owning the watch is engaged.

The library board, led by Dean

Mr. Douglass said. The head of
Aristotle will be done over if suf
ficient time is available to fulfill
