(Please turn to pac/c four) Students Not to Be Blamed For Faulty English By AYLCE ROGERS Don’t sentence college students too heavily for murdering the Eng lish language, says Dr. Leo L. Rockwell, director of the school of languages and literature at Colgate university, explaining that it’s the language’s fault and not the stu dent's. “English has at least four things the matter with it: First, it is used every day. No one expects students of algebra to go out and do their problems on the sidewalks, but English students are barely out of the classroom before they show what they haven’t learned. Eng lish as a language is one of the most treacherous of our social tools. Words change their meaning almost every time they are used. More Adults Wanted “A strenuous program of adult living brings one ultimately to terms with life so that life reaches fulfillment. The central business of a college is to produce adults. The centr'd business of the adult mind is to come to terms with life,” according to the president of Brown university. Henry M. Wris ton. ** y' "Coffee Time" Every Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock is “coffee time” at the Uni versitv of Iowa Union. Fostering an informal, person-to-person ac quaintance between students and faculty, the University Women's association presents to the student staff members of one of the uni versity departments each Tuesday. Sophomore Council Studies Class Votng Acting- on the question of voting eligibility fol spohomores not holding class cards following the frosh turmoil Wednesday, Dick Litfip, sophomore class president, yesterday appointed a committee headed by Lloyd Hoffman to investigate the feasibility of extending class suf frage. The committee will consult the judiciary committee, the executive council, the dean of men, the ASUO president and other authori ties for advice, study the evidence, then render a decision to the in corporated class of ’40 to be voted on. The class assembly will be held as soon as Hoffman announces a conclusion has been reached by the committee. Other members of the investigat ing group are Patsy Warren, Verdi Sederstrom, Marge Valentine, and Gordon Benson. Emerald Delivered to Independent ASUO s Delivery of the Emerald to ASUO members living outside of organized groups begins this morning. Up to now, those stu dents have been receiving their papers at the Co-op because it has been impossible to get a complete list of the group.

Live Literature Now Available For Sick Studes — Shakespeare, University Read ings, Principles of Accounting, and other habitual literature of a grade-conscious campus are relegated to the book-shelf and more appropriate perusals in spire the convalescing inmates of the infirmary. What could be more fitting for the appendicitis sufferer than Irvin Cobb’s “Speaking of Op- ; erations—” ? Undoubtedly, when it is all over, he will want the entire campus to know how hurt he was—diagonally, vertically, cross-wise, and on the bias. Others who miss their weekly or bi-weekly Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse find consolation in “Winnie-the-Pooh.” The perpetual arm-and-leg breaker philosophizes over “Life’s Minor Collisions” while trying to convince himself that he has not been the victim of a major one. Last week’s campus belle pores upon “The Joys of Being a Wo man” and curses a dateless, maleless existence. For the rest of the sufferers, vicarious atonement is derived in “Sports Action,” "Adven ture,” “Love and Romance” magazines. Architectural School Handed High Praise The University of Oregon's school of architecture and allied arts was honored when C. Grant La Farge, the noted painter, made a notable speech to the art students of the University of Texas, not long ago. The importance and significance of Oregon’s system of teaching was so vitally stressed that Alvan C. Gage of the Spectator gave half a page to the comments made by C. G. La Farge. Editor Gage ended his article by stating: “The University of Ore gon’s system of teaching Art Tech nique in the field of architecture has influenced some of the most outstanding schools of the country. Harvard and Columbia were the first to resognize its fullest quali ties. Oregon is to be congratulated for receiving such tributes to its school of architecture and allied I arts.” Funds to Be Raised For Browsing Room The student committee in charge of the browsing room met recently in Dean Karl W. Onthank’s office to discuss means of raising money to finish furnishing the room. Mrs. Irene Gerlinger, a former regent of the University, is general i chairman of the committee.

Mens' Swimming Pool Offers New Features Again in use after being closed for more than a year for complete alterations, a rejuvenated swimming plant is now available to men on the University of Oregon campus. Radically different in some particulars, the pool is strong- in manv features, according to M. S. Hoy man, varsity swimming coach. It has the first ten-foot diving board in the history of the school, as well is a low board. Moreover, there is plenty of space above the high board, the ceiling being 26 feet ligh, 15 feet above the high board. Pew pools throughout the country lave enough space above their high Doards to allow freedom in diving. Under the high board is a div ng pool has been sunk, giving 11 ’eet of depth. This diving pool is ;he latest thing of its type, with aeveled edges to eliminate the pos sibility of accident. The two diving boards are also mounted differently, being set on lew-type self-adjusting rocker ful ;rums, a new principle in diving ooard seat construction. The building itself is the old men’s gym cut in half and raised several fet higher. Seating facili ties for 600 spectators have been built in. The pool is rated class-A, which means, among other things, that the water has a lower bacteria count and less sediment than or dinary drinking water. The water is tested every two hours, and all the 100,000 gallons of water in the tank is completely filtered and chlorinated every eight hours. The bottom of the tank is regularly cleaned by means of a vacuum process. Cleaning of the water is handled by new equipment, includ ing a new chlorinator.

It’s right i down my alley ... a fighting speech.” Favors “Adequate Protection" The governor said he himself believed in adequate protection against war by maintaining at all times an up-to-the-minute war j machine which is ready to defend the nation, but that he did not be lieve in stressing a powerful mod ern army about everything else, as some militaristic nations. He said the United States has today what he termed a defense “framework" which is adequate. That is, the skeleton military or ganization maintained is efficient. Citizens can be worked into the machine rapidly and effectively in case of war. “We should be prepared, but not aggressive . . . we should not carry trouble to the others,” the governor said. Governor Martin was graduated from West Point in 1887 and has always been intensely interested in the army and the government’s military program, having himself had a long and active career in the army.

The party consisted of eight summer session students, Dr. Cressman, another experienced assistant, and a cook. Dr. Warren D. Smith, head of the geology department, also spent a few days at the work. Excavating in one cave, and sampling another, the group returned __OAAfl nntkunnnlAn! . --—----- ■ ---• cal specimens. Additional infor mation about most of the speci mens will be announced later, ac cording to Dr. Cressman. Some of the skeletal material has been sent to the Smithsonian Institute for examination. The party also brought back many biological specimens. Among those are examples of bats and a type of squirrel not previously reported for that region. They have six rattlesnakes and a striped racer in preservation. A complete series of bats in every stage from the newly born up to the adult was returned. In August Dr. Ernst Artevs, re search associate of the Carnegie Institute made a trip to the cave with Dr. Cressman and a party for a special study of geological problems. They examined other caves in the vicinity which, they say, promise to provide much an cient material. They also took samnles of peat in the northern end of Warner valley. They may be able to tell from these peat sam ples about changes in climatic con ditions. Two NewTeachers Replace Dr. Martin Donald F. Roy and A. Kirk Knott have been added to the staff of the sociology department to take the place vacated by Dr. R. R. Martin, now teaching in the University extension division in Portland.

Stricken Gal's Story Warningto Campus By JOHN PINK I don't think I will ever forget that morning just about a year ago when I was sitting in the infirmary. Outside the sun was beaming, grass sparkled with gleaming dew, and the birds were in the full of their morning sonata. As I sat there thinking of the happiness that must pervade the world on such a morning, deep in my revgrie, my mind far from the realities of life, I was suddenly brought back to the conscious world by the banging of a door. Looking up, I saw two young maid ens enter the infirmary at the far end, supporting a third, sobbing and moaning, cradled between their shoulders. Although the two flanking girls were attractive, as college misses go, wherever they go, it was the girl in the middle that drew a wide eyed stare from me. She was limp. Her head hung from drooping shoulders like a forlorn tassel. Her face puzzled me.

Given Enthusiastic Approach Students and townspeople gave Governor Martin enthusiastic ap proval as he pointed out the path of broad-minded, carefully instruc ted minds in a period of national unrest and re-adjustment in eco nomic and political matters. He pleaded the cause of past experi ences in determining the course of the future of Oregon. President Boyer, master of cere monies for the occasion, called upon ASUO president Barney Hall to express the greeting of the Uni versity students and upon Chan cellor F. M. Hunter to introduce the state executive. Hal Young and George Hopkins directed the musical features of the initial fall-term gathering of the student-body, including the Oregon state song, “Land of the Empire Builders” and “Marching Oregon,” newest song of the school reper toire. Mrs. Martin Introduced President Boyer escorted Mrs. Martin to the platform for a for mal introduction to the University. Wallace S. Wharton, executive secretary and director of the bud get, was also a member of the governor’s party. A military escort conducted the governor to his car at the entrance as students arose to sing “Mighty Oregon” in farewell tribute to Ore gon's governor. After pausing for a few words with the U. of O. faculty on the steps of Gerlinger hall, and receiv ing final acknowledgements of the ROTC unit, Governor Martin made a visit to the new library, recent ly completed WPA project. Gen eral Martin expressed himself as being very well pleased with the moral and spiritual development of the state of Oregon as embodied in the beautiful new structure. He was particularly interested in the fine wrought-iron work with which the interior of the library is deco rated, and in the mechanical book carrying device. Governor Martin’s visit to the campus came to an end at 12:30 when he left to attend a banquet in his honor at the Eugene hotel, given by affiliated downtown clubs and the University faculty. Excerpts from Governor Martin’s speech follow. “Our civilization is subject to similar dangers and stresses. In the United States we have rather definitely established our course.
