Good News for Education
BOARD,” a banner strung across the
top of page one. That’s the way the Register
Guard handled the news Monday afternoon
that Walter E. Pearson of Portland had been
named to succeed 15. I-’. Irvine on the state
hoard of higher education.
As much as any man not directly connect
ed with the University, William M. Tugman,
managing editor of the Eugene Register
Guard, has followed its development and tak
en an active interest in its welfare. When his
newspaper banners a story of a routine ap
pointment by the governor, it's really news—
and this story being about the University, it’s
news for the University.

^JOMMENT on 1 lie appointment seems to
indicate that the selection of Mr. Pearson
is good news. In announcing his selection,
Governor Martin expressed regret that J5. F.
Irvine would not, accept re-appointment and
declared: “In appointing Senator Pearson I
feel that i am bringing to the board a man
of broad intellectual attainments who will car
ry on t ho fine tradition of public service of
honorable B. F. Irvine. Senator Pearson is a
man of wide business experience and during
the recent sessions of the legislature made an
enviable record as one of the outstanding
senators and as a member of the joint ways
and means committee.”
Governor Martin has gained for himself
throughout the state a reputation for straight
forwardness. Even more plainspoken than the
governor, however, is the “Who’s Who in
the Oregon Legislature.” The 19117 edition

Governor Martin's selection of Mr. 1’eor
son seems, all in all, to have been a wise one,
sinoo Mr. Irviue would not return. It should
be a good move for the entire system id' higher
education. That makes it good news for the
University of Oregon.
A Common Net Profit
'J'MIK OBVIOUS advantages to be gained
from a conference which brings business
men together and in direct contact with stu
dents in the school of business administration
plus the success of the first meeting should
bring about perpetuation of the retailers’ con
clave as an annual event.
Although the business conference was
something new as far as this campus is con
cerned. it was a success. More than 100 mer
chants from outside Eugene attended and an
estimated 200 were served at the final 'ban
The offering of sueli a conference is justi
fied in the fact that it brings Oregon business
men together to discuss all sorts of problems
and to gain refreshing ideas and new interpre
tations of the business world from men in oth
er fields. It establishes contacts between prac
ticing merchants and business theorists—for
the most part educators and men somewhat
aloof from the actual lanes of trade but pos
sessing valuable knowledge as to the func
tions of economics.
# * Hf
T^ALUABLE (is is that linking of theory and
practice, there are more practical and
equally important benefits to he derived from
such conferences. They mean a closer lie be
tween the University and outside professional
groups and especially a more ideal connec
tion between the school of business adminis
tration and men working in tin: fields it is
1 raining students to enter.
This benefits both the school and the busi
ness man in several ways. Students have a
chance to make contacts which may help them
in securing positions after graduation. Busi
ness men have an opportunity to survey the
“crop” of BA students and to select from the
group men they may some day have occasion
to need.
Students, through attendance at the con
ference, gain an idea of the problems faced
in the real business world. It should, because
of this fact, be of considerable help to them in
mapping their course of study.
# « <*
JJECATJSE of the “bargaining power” and
the attraction to outside speakers which
the conference can present, it will, as its in
fluence and reputation grows, draw more and
more recognized business authorities from
outside Oregon. Here again the interchange
of ideas is valuable.
The business administration school is the
largest on the Oregon campus but it is not the
first, school to adopt, the conference idea. The
annual Oregon State Editorial association
meet held in the school of journalism is an
event of long standing. Its results have been
more than encouraging, both to the school and
to newspaper editors and publishers..Its meet
ings are for a large extent informal and often
speeches give rise* to spirited debate.
Such conferences as these become useless
when they deteriorate into mere yearly
“back-slapping” and “good-fellowiug” get
togethers. The merchants’ conference, like
the editorial association's meets, avoided this.
Its session brought forth definite opinions,
some of which were challenged hotly. Such
discussions made the “business man's bull
ies!" worthwhile, it should be made an an
nual feature.
First Impressions

(across I he grass) past the corner of the .Mur

as pride and appreciation of the beauty of
(lie new library welled up within us.
Stirred emotions and strong impressions
lead to soul-pervading resolves. We resolved
to list' our authority at the Kmerald to bring
a needed reform- this building couldn't be
called a “libe"- such a term was •rood
enough when applied to a dump of stone and
masonry like the old libe but this definitely
must be known, and known only, as the ('Di

There may have been some small mercen
ary considerations behind those emotions. Af

creasing at every step. We strained our neck'
scanning the front of the building with an
appraising eye. The appraising eye did not
find it wanting.
inside, we felt as if we had moved into
a dream tor this was the sort of building we
had dreamed of for years for Oregon.
Reverently wc wandered up to the circu
lation desk, taking our time, for this was
the experience of a lifetime. We knew who
we wanted, found the right desk, caught the
eye of an attendant. We cleared our throat.
Then the great blow fell.
It wasn t that the librarian had halitosis,

People Are Silly, Says
Visiting Caricaturist
Long face.-;, short fat faces, big noses, bushy hair; that is how you
i see yourself after L. C. Ward, eminent carcaturist, has transferred
his impression of you onto paper.
Mr. Ward is now making his second visit to the University of Oregon,
where he is making caricatures of students and other notable subjects.
He made his first visit to the campus five years ago when he was just
starting upon nis present career.
‘Frankly I think people are silly, and I'm no exception," Mr. Ward
said when commenting upon his
chosen profession. He believes that ‘
a good car icaturist must have, first
of all, a good imagination, a cynical
humor, a good background of art
training, and the ability to laugh at '
people and at himself as well.
Mr. Ward is from Detroit, Michi- ^
gan, but spends most of his time ,
travelling around the United j
States, visiting various college j
campuses, clubs, and doing free j
lance work for magazines and |
newspapers. He says that this type
of life is to him the most interest- ,
ing and enjoyable he has ever ex- \
perienced. \
Group reactions, to Mr. Ward, 1
are by far the most interesting; t
they offer so much more than any 1
individual reaction. He has drawn t
so many faces that he says he can \
tell character and personality pret- 1
ty close by one’s face. A caricatur- t
st, Mr. Ward said, has a tendency
,o overlook and disregard pre
enses; fronts are easily seen
hrough; and most of all, he
ioesn’t like people to make them
elves something they are not.
Mr. Ward so far has visited only
hree fraternity houses on the Ore
gon campus, but these houses have
ound a great source of enjoyment
n his work and many students
lave finally had a chance to see
hemselves as others see them.
Although Mr. Ward feels that
,irls get just as big a kick out of
he exaggerated drawings as the
mys, he always visits the sorority
ouses last. As a reason for this,
he artist explained that girls go
or anything that is being done
his season and they need the ad
vertising that is gotten from their
raternity friends to put them in
he mood for a sitting.

guide-posts as Fiction, Mystery,
Miscellaneous, Rare Fiction, Hu

seems, Literature.
The rare old volumes of your
childhood are all there. "Black

“Deerslayer,” “Freckles," Kipling’s
works, Dickens’ complete, Richard
Harding Davis, “Peg o’ My Heart,”

in those dark, dim, dusty shadows.
Thrillers galore are to be f0und.
Titles which remind one of the

“Only a Shop Girl.” Classics: Tol

There are love-sick numbers such
as “What Would You Do, Love?”
“The Woman Thou Gavest Me,”
"The Trifler,” and mysterious titles
like “The Woman in Question.”
If your taste runs to thrills there
is “The Life,and Daring Deeds of
Buffalo Bill” by one William Cady;
also Emerson Hough's “54-40 or

Alf Spriggs, “Cracksman” — what

a title like that? Bret Harte and
Mark Twain are there in profusion.
Galsworthy is well represented.
You might take a chance on some

“Naked on Roller Skates” or “Pigs
