Miss Smith Talks
To Coeds on Jobs
Final Lecture in Theta Sig
Series Given at Gerlinger
Hall Last Night
“Women and Their Careers” was
the subject of a lecture given by
Miss Janet Smith, University em
ployment secretary, last night in
Alumni hall of Gerlinger in the
last of a series of three forum lec
tures for University women. The
forums have been presented under
the direction of Theta Sigma Phi,
women's journalism honorary.
"Three doorways exist through
which women may enter the busi
ness world — office work, selling,
and teaching-” Miss Smith said,
“and after a girl finds one of these
doorways, jobs are- numerous.”
In looking for a worker, an em
ployer asks, first of all, if the ap
plicant has ranked above the av
erage in school work, Miss Smith
said, and also if she maintained
interest in campus activities. An
other very important requirement,
according to Miss Smith, is that
the applicant be thoroughly inter
ested in the work at hand. Earn
ing one’s wray through school, at
least in part, was also cited as a
qualifying factor.
A satisfactory solution has not
yet been found to the problem of
finding one’s most suitable career,
according to Miss Smi^i.

On Fourth in Series of
Moot Trials
The fourth moot court of the
present sits in solemn session in
the circuit court room of the Lane
county courthouse tonight at 7:30.
Acting Dean Orlando Hollis of the
law school will be “Hizzoner” for
the evening.
Tonight’s trial concerns the case
of one Arthur Barnett who drove
off in the “wrong” car — Robert
Miller’s blue Ford coupe. Barnett
had asked a fellow stident if he
might borrow his blue Ford coupe
for a short drive, unaware of the
fact that Miller's coupe was iden
tical to that owned by the afore
mentioned fellow student.
On the way he managed to bring
Miller’s car into sudden and ser
ious contact with another person’s
vehicle, resulting in considerable j
damage to Miller’s machine.
He returned the remains of the
coupe to the curb by the Side, and
was assured bv the fellow student
that everything would be all right,
as the fellow student had his car
fully insured against accidents.
But it wasn't the fellow student’s
car that Barnett had wrecked.

most crucial battle. Oregon collect

Sayles yielded nine, however Buck
Bailey's gang made theirs count.
Three big Washington State inn
ings the sixth, eighth, and ninth
provided enough extra base clout

a vengeance, collecting a homer in
each canto.
Mound Duel Develops
For five innings it was a true
mound duel with both boys hurling
beautiful ball. Up to then, Oregon
had collected just four scattered
blows off Lefty Marlowe, and
Washington State had found
Sayles for only two.
In the first of the sixth, Hobby’s
pitching ace yielded his first earn
ed run in 42 innings when Ed God
dard, Cougar right-fielder, reached
him for a lusty home run ovev the
bank in left centerfield.

The 2 to 0 lead looked large with
both teams playing tight ball. How

came right back in their half to

Sayles then grooved one to Corky
Carlson who larruped a long high
