Students Express
Desire For Work
The same spirit of independence
and the desire to work their own
way through school is evident
again as in previous years, Miss
Janet Smith, employment secre
tary, declared yesterday. More stu
dents have money for the whole
year’s tuition than before.
Rightfully called one of the bus
iest persons on the campus, Miss
Smith had, by the end of the first
day of “rush week/’ interviewed
134 people and received 66 phone
Although most of the people
contacted were students in need of
work, some were townspeople
searching for employees.
Those seeking employment this
year are not only the usual run of
experienced dishwashers and table
waiters, but are also accomplished
bookkeepers and typists who are
willing to exchange their services
for meals.

disposition on the part of the au

Miss Barbara Baldinger, freshman, plans to practice for Olympic
swimming events in Tokyo while attending the University.
Champion Girl Swimmer,
Barbara Baldinger,Here
For Journalism Course
Oregon has a “Who’s Who” on the campus in Barbara Baldinger,
freshman from Grants Pass, who is holder of the junior national 880
meter relay championship, the Newport harbor 3'^ mile rough water
championship, the 500-yard Southern Pacific Amateur Atheltic union
championship, and the Hermosa 880-yard championship.
The Australian crawl is her favorite stroke and the one used in
her record-breaking races. She also represented the Los Angeles
athletic club in swim events for four years.
tsar Data, canea t>oo uy most
of her friends, is eighteen years
old. Although she has been swim- |
ming for some time, she didn’t
take it seriously until the latter
part of 1933, when she won the;
Newport Harbor championship.
Asked whether she had any ob- [
stacles, she answered quickly and
eagerly, “Of course, all the good
swimmers.” In perfect health and
filled with endless energy, enthu
siasm, and ardent determination,
she does admit that training was
a little hard at times, when she had
to eat all carbohydrates at one
meal, and all proteins at the next,
but she would do anything for her
Her father is her trainer and the
inspiration of her career. Impul
sive, and living joyously by the
whim of the moment, “Bob” is
conscientious and hard-working.
Has Operation
In 1936 Barbara underwent an
operation. Recovering, she trained
for six weeks before the Oympic
tryouts, and barely missed qualify
! ing for the American team.
Barbara Baldinger, according to
; Aileen Allen, women’s swimming
coach for the Los Angeles athletic
club, and one of the nation’s best
] swimming authorities, has “prom
ise of becoming one of the out
standing long distance swimmers
of America.”
Barbara’s main interests are
swimming and journalism. Al
though she has already achieved a
degree of success in swimming, her
' ambition is to become a journal
ist. Clear-eyed and eager, she says
that if she can get the training in
swimming down here, she will try
for the 1940 Olympics.
C. L. Kelly Plans
To Attend Annual
Accounting Meet
Professor C. L. Kelly of the busi
ness administration school will
leave October 14 to attend the fif
tieth anniversary meeting of the
American Institute of Accountants,
in New York City.
The meeting is to be an inter

accountants from all over the
world are expected, Mr. Kelly said
yesterday afternoon.
“I am not making the trip for
pleasure,” Mr. Kelly said, “but
am going in an attempt to keep
the Oregon accounting school in
touch with eastern and world-wide
progress. If we are to continue
our school in the same progressive
manner in the future that it has
advanced during the past, we need
outside contacts with leaders in
our specialized field.”
Mr. Kelly attended the meeting
at Atlantic City in 1935 which
formed plans for the consolidation
of the American Institute of Ac
countants and the American So
ciety of Certified Public Account
ants, which went into effect in
1936. He acted as a representative
of the University at the 1935

Two completely remodeled and
newly furnished fraternity houses
have blossomed out on the campus.
The Phi Gamma Delta house, for
merly occupied by the Delta Gam

More Students
Swell BA School
One hundred and fifty-four of
the 200 added student registration
at the University of Oregon for
the 1937 fall term are business ad
ministration majors. This informa
tion was announced yesterday af
ternoon from the office of the dean
of the school, Dr. Victor Morris.
Registration in the school jumped
from 682, at this time last year,
to 836 at the present time.
The release shows a 22.6 per cent
increase in the business school as
compared to a 7.3 per cent increase
in the whole university. Univer
sity registration at this time last
year was 2722 while 2922 have al
ready been registered for the com
ing fall term.
The largest increase in the busi
ness school is in the freshman
class in constructive accounting
where registration of 116 is 32 per
cent over last year's enrollment.
Other freshman and sophomore
courses also show a larger enroll
ment than last year.
Upper division courses have a
slightly larger total than in 1936,
but the big advance has come with
the influx of a larger group of un
dergraduates than in the past few
Registration figures for the Uni
versity show that the enrollment
in the business administration
school totals 28.2 per cent of the
University’s entire student group,
the announcement said.
