Want to See Part o f Wilbur
Whale’s Cousin? Drop Up to
Deady Hall’s Third Floor
Speaking of whales, and who hasn't heard of “Wilbur,” the odorifer
ous whale recently cast up on the Oregon beach? If you haven’t time
to dash down to the beach and inspect the huge mammal for yourself,
a very good idea of the size of these creatures can be gained by in
specting the pieces of skeleton contained in the zoological collection on
the third floor of Deady hall. One section of the vertebrae alone is as
big as a chopping block, and one bone of the flipper is as large as
the fender of a car,
The whale exhibit is only one of
a 5,000 specimen collection of Ore
gon birds, their nests and eggs;
animals both from Oregon and oth
er countries; and shells and plant
specimens. The collection is largely
the work of one man, Dr. A. G.
Prill, of Scio, Oregon. Dr. Prill,
with the help of his friends, collect
ed all the birds and animals,
mounted them himself and then
gave the collection to the Univer
sity in 1919. Dr. Prill was former
ly a collector for the Smithsonian
Institute museum in Washington,
D.C., and for the Golden Gate Park
museum in San Francieco.
Strange Birds
Most people have read about the
strange birds and animals which
inhabit the world and perhaps a
few have actually seen some of
them, but it is strangely satisfying
to have them mounted in life-like
positions within glass cases where
one can look at them as long as
he pleases. A young kangaroo, only
about 18 inches tall, is there —
pouch and all; a duck-billed platy
pus, that strange native of Austra
lia which is a cross between a bird
and an animal, arc also to be found.
The platypus has fur like an otter
or mink, but has webbed feet and
a bill, and the female lays eggs
similar to a duck. The sword of
a sword-fish is a ferocious looking
thing, nearly 20 inches long; and in
a tiny bottle is to be found a black
widow spider, harmless looking, but
insidiously deadly! A tiny fawn
looks so life-like that one expects
to see it bound away, and right
above it is a small black bear.
The greater part of the collec
tion, and the best part in the eyes
of a scientist, is the part devoted
to birds. Every bird to be found in
Oregon is included, some of them
so rare that scientists have come
from other parts of the country to
study and inspect them. Six kinds
of owls are to be found, ranging
from the miniature screech owl to
the huge barn owl. There are two
specimens of the golden eagle. Be
sides these, there are also repre
sentatives of all the 55 specimens
which Dr. Ralph Huestis, professor
of zoology, says are to be found
around Eugene.
The display has promise of gain
ing a favorable location soon. When
the books have been moved from
Condon to the new library, it is the
plan of University scientists to |
make the room into an anthropol
ogy and zoological museum where
these collections will be easily
available to students and scientists
alike. #

Special Editions
Planned by Staff
Emerald-Oregana P i !r* n i c*
Proposed; Date, Place
Still Undecided
Nominations for editor of the
spring term special editions of the
Fmerald were made at a meeting
of the staff in the journalism build
ing Thursday night. Special faculty
and critic editions were suggested
to be printed during the term.
Suggested editors for the vari
ous editions are: frosh, John Pink
and Dick Litfin; women’s, Clare
Igoe, Myra Hulser, Bernadine Bow
man, Virginia Endicott, and Mil
dred Blackburne: men's, Gordon
Connelly, Lloyd Tupling, Paul
Deutschmann, and Bill Cummings.
Final selections will be made at a
meeting of the staff next Tuesday.
No definite ^lace was selected
for the proposed Emerald-Oregana
picnic, but Swimmers’ Delight and
other places were suggested.
For the first time this year Dean
Eric W. Allen, of the journalism
school, was able to attend the staff
meeting and offered both favorable
and unfavorable criticism of the
last two terms of the Emerald,
polntitng out that the paper is now
in a position for greater improve
ment than for several years,
A survey of the Emerald con
ducted in Charles Hulten’s fresh
man journalism classes which Dean
Allen pointed out was on the whole
quite fair and well grounded,
brought the following criticisms:
approval of the editorial policies;
lack of enough women’s sport news
and good gossip columns; lack of
accuracy throughout the Emerald
columns (though not due to any
lack of effort to clean it up, the
dean pointed out); general ap
proval of Bernadine Bowman’s ex
change column; advertisements
out of place on the front page; too
few names in the paper and too
much repetition of the same
names; not enough upperclassmen
on the reporting staff; and a lack
of good theater reviews.

Thousands See Eucharistic Service in Manila
Crowding Luneta square in Manila for the final rites in the recent Eucharistic congress are thous
ands of Homan Catholics. Clergy, laymen, and high church dignitaries attended from 54 nations. The
picture above is of the children’s day program and was made from an army air service photograph. The
tallest altar in the world, erected especially for the congress, is shown in the center of the square.
‘Nazi Irritation’ Is
US Propaganda,
Professor Says
All rumor of “German irrita
tion" in the 1936 Olympic games
has been the work of “American
propagandists,” Howard Raabe,
Oregon State instructor in phys
ical education, told PE majors
gathered in the asssembly room of
the PE building Wednesday night.
Mr. Raabe visited the games as
a guest of the German government
along with 29 others chosen from
the United States. His party was
taken through the “Olympic Vil
lage” by German guides who show
ed them the dining rooms, dormi
tories and the practice field.
The Germans and the Danish
are among the most outstanding in
gymnasts, Mr. Raabe told the
group. France, he said, doesn't
include gymnasts in their team be
cause they have no gymns for this
purpose. In Czechoslovakia all
those interested in gymnastics
from six to sixty receive training,
he stated.

Only Five Orange Lettermen
Wily Slats Gill on the Oregon
State campus has only a quintet of
letter-winners on which to base
his hopes, but is expected to dev
elop a dangerous club with avail
able sophomore material.
Gill's infield is composed of half
veteran and half reserve talent.
Karl Conkling, first baseman, and
Art Merryman, second baseman,
are the vets, and Fred Lewis at
shortstop, and Rudy Kappel at the
hot corner, are newcomers.
Jay Pleasant, Ike Wintermute,
and Lloyd Chatterton patrol the
outfield. Battery prospects have
worried Gill considerably, but pit
chers Bill Kalibak and Fred
Cramer are back to carry on.
Oregon’s Sophomore Talent
Loss of four regulars has damp
ened Hobby's spirits, but present
indications show that he won't be
too handicapped. The Ducks earn
ed at least an even break with
every team in the circuit last
Main problem facing Hobson this
season was to develop pitchers in
place of Bob Millard, league-lead
ing hinder, and Don McFadden, a
pair who were lost via graduation.
Bill Sayles to date has answered
ill dreams of Duck supporters.
Any way you figure it, we'll
stay with Hobby and his boys.

House managers of the var
ious living organizations have
been asked to bring money for
the campus luncheon to the
back room in the College Side
between 10 and 12 o’clock Satur
day morning, Sam Fort, general
chairman of Junior weekend,
said last night.
Each house is expected to pay
twenty-five cents for the mem
bers fed by their organizations
on Friday of Junior weekend,
Fort said, to cover the cost of
the campus luncheon.
Sigma Delta Pi Initiation

members into Sigma Delta Pi, na
tional Spanish honorary, will be

the staff at Oregon Normal, Mon
mouth; Miss Marie Sacomano, now
teaching at Grants Pass; and Miss
Juanita Demmer, of the Medford
high school faculty.

pared by Mrs. Wright, will follow
the initiation.
‘Oregon Melody Men"
Refuse Invitation to Sing
The “Oregon Melody Men,” a
group of University students who
have formed a singing chorus,
have declined the offer that was
extended to them to sing in the
Junior weekend canoe fete, it was
learned last night.
The chorus is expected to parti
cipate in the operetta, “Student
Prince,” next fall, according to
Hal Young, professor of voice.
Oregon Nine
(Continued from hit if three)

year, is gradually returning to
Oregon State’s opening infield is
divided in the matter of exper
ience. Fred Lewis, shortstop, and
Rudy Kappel, third sacker, are
new to the lineup, but Earl Conk
ling, first base, and Art Merry
man, second, are both lettermen
for their positions.
Only comparison of the teams is
their pre-season games against
Willamette, which give Oregon an
edge. Willamette beat Oregon
State three times last weekend,
but against the Webfoots divided
honors in a doubleheader. Bill
Sayles pitched Oregon to a 3 to 0
win in the first contest, but Jerry
Gastineau, Bearcat ace, blanked
the Ducks 4 to 0 in the night-cap.
