Gage, of the University of Oregon faculty, were both in the vicinity of Peking, China, July 8, 1937, when the opening shots of the present Sino Japanese conflict were fired at the Marco Polo bridge, six miles from Peking. Professor Bowen had arrived in Peking July 4 on a tour of the Orient, Dr. Gage was on the Blue Express passenger train between ! Nanking and Peking when hostili ties broke out. The express was held overnight at Tientsin, a two hour run from Peking, on the even ing of the. incident because of trouble along the line. “About 10 o’clock that night a small detachment of Japanese in the vicinity of Fengtai encountered a part of the Chinese 29th army and one of the forces opened fire, starting the war,’’ Dr. Gage re ported. “News of the fighting was re ceived on the train and we were held at Tientsin. The next morning i it took us five hours to cover the ordinarily short run to Peking. . Tension and confusion were ap . parent everywhere, but no one had . any idea of the possibility of war or the intensity of the situation," . he says. Professor Bowen tells,, “I was • asleep in my room at the time of - the incident but was awakened by i the sound of the firing, which , could be distinctly heard within 1 the city.

Hall Completes Frosh Election, Meeting Plans New Set-up Will Try To Eliminate Party Vote Wrangling Final plans were completed yes terday for the new plan of nomina tion and election to be held Wed nesday night at 7:30 in Villard hall, according to Barney Hall, ASUO president. Less Red Tape In an attempt to do away with as much of the party vote-wrangl ing and bloc planning as possible, the new set-up will have the whole business completed in one meeting. In past years, according to Hall, the party actions have set off some dangerous and slightly shady fire works before the time of elections. Under Hall's plan, membership cards will admit frosh classmen to the assembly hall and give each one ballot. After as many nomina tions are made from the floor as the frosh want to run on either party or independent tickets, the selection will be held. Plan Is Reform The new frosh election plan, put forth by Hall and approved by Dean Earl, is the first sweeping reform in class politics to be brought about since the spring term elections. Hall announced that he will recommend that the newly organ ized class take up as its first busi ness the adoption of a constitution to enable it to run. Such a docu ment, the center of much wrangl ing was formed by the last frosh class, but was tabled last spring to be decided upon by this new class. At present the class is run ning without any legal standing, as there is no provision in the ASUO by-laws to govern any class action. 'Yes, I Was a Nobody ThenOpportunity...' By MORITZ THOMSEN When I went to the game last Saturday, I was just a nobody, I was suffering from an inferiority complex, and I was afraid to look people in the eye, but now, at last I’m a big shot. Self consciously I slunk into the stadium last Saturday afternoon and took an unobtrusive seat in the last row. Little did I realize the gift that fate wo’uld throw my way. Little did I know then, how my popularity would increase. The game stopped after the first thirty minutes of play, and because I was feeling so self conscious, I decided to get up and slink out before the others, but just as I passed the Oregon cheer section, I noticed something that set my heart afluteer. Two students in white sweaters were sit ting on the steps weeping. Con quering my fear, I sidled up to one of them and in a low embar rassed voice I asked what was the trouble. Their low moans floated to me in the warm fall breeze. “Our yells are coming off in a minute, and there aren’t enough guys with white shirts to cover up the cards.” In one swift moment the plan of lifa was made clear to’ me. Draw ing myself up to my full five foot two, I announced proudly, “I have (Please turn to pai/c three) Phyllis Gray Recital Will Open Season Phyllis Gray, 14-year-old pianist and student of Mrs. Aurora Un derwood, will open the recital sea son at the University for the school year when she presents a program at 8 p.m. tonight in the music au ditorium.

'Death' Blood Cells Found by Physician By observing a new type of blood cell discovered by Dr. Edwin E. Osgood, professor of experimental medicine at the University of Oregon medical school in Portland, physicians may now predict ap nroachinir death, it was announced recently.

Cells Perforated The cells which are perforated, have abnormally large granules, and stain a darker blue than nor mal, are discussed fully in Dr. Os good’s new book, “Atlas of Hem atology.” In his book Dr. Osgood also dis cusses new discoveries which sup port the theory that leukemia, a fatal blood disease, is allied with cancer. Enlarged nucleoli within the neclei is typical of leukemia cells and cancer tissue, the book states. Invented “Bone Glass” Osgood is inventor of the Osgood "bone glass,” which combines the functions of kidneys, lung, and blood stream. The instrument, used in laboratory study, makes it possible to culture living cells out side the body. While Dr. Alexis Carrel and Colonel Charles Lindbergh’s “arti ficial heart” propagates living tis sue, Dr. Osgood’s “bone glass” grows individual, separate cells, for the first time in medical his tory.
