Ready to Fire
First “set-to" over the contro

President Roosevelt was set for
March 9 when supporters of the
move yesterday succeeded in get
ting the Senate judiciary commit
tee to arrange a hearing for that
The committee also approved a
proposal supplementary to the
President's plan. The bill allowed
supreme court justices to retire on
full pay when they reached the
age of 70.
Ask More Money
Eight hundred thousand workers
on American railroads yesterday
mapped out a demand for a wage
increase through their representa
tives in 16 “non-operating" rail
way brotherhoods.
Chairman E. M. Harrison de
clared that the 1.000 delegates at
the meeting would not have much
trouble getting together, and that
a plan for higher wages for rail
road workers was assured.
Youth Act ‘Acts'1
Urging the Washington state
legislature to adopt a bill which
would give them a $1,600,000 edu
cational - vocational program,
youthful lobbyists for the Wash
ington youth act swept into the
state capitol and did considerable
damage to the furnishings, the
building superintendent maintain
ed yesterday.
They “broke an expensive glass
light reflector, removed bronze
trimmings from wall lights, un-!

UCLA Coeds Go
Man-Hunting in
Better Clothes
Man-hunting UCLA coeds are
said to be the best dressed girls
in the world in an article entitled
“Sheepskin Deep" in the Saturday
Evening Post.
“UCLA coeds are famous for
elaborate clothes. . . . the real rea
son is that coeds tremendously out
number men at UCLA, and be
sides, have to fight off competi
tion from all the pretty girls in
Los Angeles, where there are prob
ably more pretty girls than any
where else in the world,” says
Elizabeth Eldridge, a national sor
ority official, in her Saturday Eve
ning Post publication.
Women students and the dean
of women said that the whole thing
was a “false accusation,” and cold
figures proved that women out
number men by less than a hund
red. “Taste” was the word used
to explain their distinction.
Canine Stanford Students
Stanford is not going to the
dogs, but dogs are going to Stan
fard. A number of canine students,
not wishing to cur-tail their edu
cation, have been attending classes '
on the quad regularly.
The Stanford Daily suggests
that university officials have long
overlooked a lucrative source of
income in not charging the usual
$115 for each of the horde of dogs
that descend on classes.
So it seems Oregon is not the
only school having a great deal
more trouble putting out the dogs
than putting on the dog.
Looking Them Over
Beverly Wright, a graduate of
Martinez, California, high school,
and a would-be coed, believes in
"looking them over” before she
chooses the ideal university to at
She is making a tour of inspec
tion of leading universities and
colleges in all states, and if the
funds she has set aside for her
purpose held out, she wants to
visit many more. Miss Wright, who
intends to take journalism, ex
pects to be, after concluding her
tour, an authority on “Where to
go to school and why.”

College Should Be Linked
Closer to Business Life9
Says Anthropology Head
Dr. Cressman Attributes Cheating to
Conflict in Values; Professors Must
Treat Students as Adults
(Editor's note: In the following article Dr. Cressman takes up the
problem of cheating, with which the Emerald has been concerned the
past week or so, and delineates changes in educational methods and
attitudes that might correct it. In subsequent articles this week, the
Emerald will publish views of Oregon professors on what might consti
tute The Ideal University.)
The persistence of widespread cheating in the University and its
sister institutions, raises the question in my mind not of a breakdown
of values of the individual students but of elements in the social en
vironment which stimidate mass reaction.

;hat is a peculiar characteristic to
;he academic world starting in the

Professional Education
Broader, Says Bossing
“Professional schools actually present a broader cultural back
ground than traditional liberal arts schools,” declares Dr. Nelson L.
Bossing of the school of education, “that is, if cultural background
is interpreted to mean breadth of acquaintance with the many fields
of human knowledge represented by the divisions in the University.”
In arts and letters there is only a small percentage of the students
who are acquainted through their curriculum with the fields of human

Christian Meeting

Christian council. The dinner cli
maxed Saturday's student Christ
ian conferences.
After the dinner, the group met
to criticize the conference and sug
gest plans for future action.
Significant to faculty and stu
dents on the campus is the fact
that the majority of students at
the conference favored he reestab
lishment of the chair of religion
on the campus.
Those who participated in the
discussion group on personal
Christian living requested that
some provision be made by the
Student Christian council for con

knowledge represented in the pro
fessional schools and particularly
are they unacquainted with the
broad field of science, says Dr.
A survey made from the regis
trar’s report of 1934 based upon
the academic records of all stu
dents graduated from the Univer
sity of Oregon with baccalaureate
degrees in June, 1933, whose uni
versity work was entirely within
this institution, shows the profes
sional students have a much broad
er cultural background in studies.
Of the 51 students represented in
this survey in English, only 3 per
cent of them had work in the
science field, and only 16 per cent
in the fields represented by the
various schools in the university.
In contrast to this figure, 43 per
cent of the medical students had
work in the field of science, with
19 per cent earning credits also in
the arts and letters school.
Since specialization, continued
Bossing, seems to tend to decrease
general cultural training, a degree
in general cultural education with
no major required would be more
beneficial than a BA or MS.
Pointing out that this type of
degree would doubtless involve a
general college movement, Dr.
Bossing explained that it could not
be successful under present condi
tions, although he regarded the
graduate degree under these condi
tions a great advancement.

Gonzaga's Bulldogs weren’t
much opposition for Oregon driv
ing Webfoot basketeers at the
Igloo last night and Hobby Hob
son’s champioship chasers took the
Spokane outfit in stride, 58 to 22.
While the Webfoots were rolling
over Gonzaga they were losing
their undisputed northern division
leadership as Washington tripped
Idaho, 36 to 31, and boomed into a
tie for the top.
Reserves started and played half
the game for Oregon. The subs
took a big early lead and had a
25-to-14 edge by half-time.
Gale, Jewell Tally
The second period was soft as
a breeze out of the south and the
only spectator interest was a scor
ing duel between two reserves who
came into their own. Laddie Gale
and Ray Jewel. The two tall lads
traded field basket for field basket
for a few minutes near the end,
with Gale edging out, 16 points
to 15, when he layed in Wally Jo
hansen’s pass for the final field
Gonzaga just wasn't in the ball
game. The Webfoots didn’t “put
out” much, for it wasn't necessary.
The Bulldogs weren’t much shakes
on defense and Gale, Jewel and
Slim Wintermute, who scored
eight, usually stood all alone when
they caged their cripples. Passing
in to the big fellows was easy. Ken
Purdy did Oregon’s only long-shot
scoring with four field goals. His
total was 10 points.
Only Gonzaga player who could
hit anything was a little guard
named Haug, who holed five field
buckets, four of them long. Len
Yandle, veteran of hundreds of
hoop wars, didn't function much
against the Duck defense. Ray
Leonard, ex-Commerce high for
ward scored six points.
Haug hit two from the left cor
ner in the first couple of minutes,
which put the Bulldogs in their
one and only lead, 4 to 2. Bill
Courtney tied it with a foul-line
one-hander, and then Gale sent
the Webfoots ahead for good with
his second field bucket, on a pass
from Anet.
Gale and Ray Jewel put on the
scoring pressure, with Johansen
assisting, and the Webfoot scorn
rolled far, far onto the right side
of the ledger.
