    From Where
I ■ ' ■ ■ --'
The other evening two charm
ing blond coeds stepped out onto
the balconies of the upper division
reading room for a brief cigaret.
All went well until it came time
for them to return to books and
Study, then they started to open
the door, only to discover that it
had locked behind them, and there
they were, in a pretty mess indeed.
Spying a young man they beat
on the door and when they caught
his eye beckoned coyly for him to
come over. With gentlemanly haste
he dashed over, and the maids in
distress shouted would he please
open the door.
Disappointed, the youth queried
Wistfully, "Oh, Is that what you

We nominate for undying fame
the Theta Chi pledge, who in the
throes of being tubbed, turned to
his tormentors and commented
nonchalantly, with a pleasant
smile—“Stimulating, isn’t it?”

We listen with great moral in
dignation to the woeful tale of the
football player who, wounded in
the Stanford game and hied to the
infirmary for a few' repairs, was
denied his tickets for the game
tomorrow. A pretty mean way to
treat one of our grid gladiators,
we’d say.

Speaking of moral indignation,
ours practically frothed over the
other night as we were walking
peacefully and contemplatively
down Thirteenth street. Down Al
der street a grey sedan came burst
ing, and in splendid disregard of
“stop street” signs whipped around
the corner, cutting off a generous
slice, and missing us about one
half an inch. It was piloted and
manned by roistering students.
Of such stuff is sudden death
Visits to Infirmary
Must Be Regulated
All visiting hours at the infirm
ary will have to be discontinued
unless better cooperation from the
students can be promoted, it was
announced by hospital authorities
Certain rules and regulations
must be observed in order to have
a successful healtli service, and
one of the most important rules Is
the observance of visiting hours.
Lately visitors have been calling
at the infirmary without permis
sion and at all times of the day.
Once again the health service
wants to stress that the visiting
hour schedule is from 2 to 4 in
the afternoon.

Callison pointed out the feeling of
self-confidence and increased pow

LLOYD TUPLTNG, Managing Editor
John Henry Nash—a 'Bold-Faced'1 Name in Printing History
Jj^VEN the events of a homecoming pyogram
Midi ns (lie one which is upon the campus
lliis morning cannot completely overshadow
a visit by John Henry Nash.
John Henry Nash is one of the ranking
fine printers in the United States. His rule
and color work is held by experts in general
to be the best.
For the past fifteen years, Mr. Nash has
been interested in the work of the typography
class which studies under the direction of
Robert ('. Hall, superintendent, of the Univer
sity press. He has given the class aid and
instruction and lias even permitted them to
use fonts of bis own types in the books which
they print.
If the word can be used, Oregon “dis
covered” Mr. Nash- The famous printer was
a craftsman rather than a scholar and this
University was the first to make use of his
valuable advice. Mr. Nash now holds an
honorary degree from Oregon and lias born
attached to thr* faculty on several occasions
as lecturer in liis field.
Although it is bis craftsmanship that lias
pained him fame, he is well versed in the
background and history of Ids art. His re
search into the history of printing; and paper
making has been as exhausting; as those of
any man of today and lie is an accepted au
thority in every phase of fine printing;.
Nor is his work and faurt* only in the
past. Each year sees the inclusion of another
of his books in the list of best fine books
Mr. Nash’s broad fund of knowledge has
added a great deal to his product, making
his books more than beautiful reproductions
because be has been able to select only the
finest works for reproduction. It is fitting
that a man of his calibre and with bis interests
in both the content and format of books
should dedicate Oregon’s new library.
And the Success of Homecoming Hangs in the Balance
^y/ I*, \ r; got a bad reputation to duck
ami we learned a lot at that Stanford
game,” Rally Chairman Sam Fort «Ioc'IsummI
vest onlay in answer to oft-heard criticisms
of his group front grads and tin Emerald
challenge that it “do something.’’
The rally committee has in the past worked
with ti California trip in mind and adminis
tration of funds has not always been judi
cious, Fort says, but such is not the case
this year.
Facing one of the biggest tasks lie Inis
taekled in his three years of activity work on
the campus, Fort marshalled his group yes
terday afternoon to formulate plans for Ore
gon State game festivities and stepped into
the future to plan rallies for the California
and WNC games in Cortland.
The program Fort Inis outlined for the
OKC game is a good one. The rally committee
will not he “caught on a dime” when leader
ship is needed, the leader states. If permis
sion can he obtained and the showing of the
team warrants it, a free dance probably will
he offered Saturday night.
* ■» #
'J'MIK Fmerald hopes Fort is right in placing
so much trust in his committee. Tin; con
census all over the campus seems to he that
this is going to he Oregon's greatest home
coming and that the rally committee will have
ample chance to strul its stuff.
The administration started the ball rolling
when if decided to permit Iresliman men 1o
lake Friday morning off from classes to work
on flic bonfire, expected to be of record
breaking dimensions.
The program, including the names of
Whiteman and dalli-C'itrci, lias caught the
fancy of the campus—and apparently of a
goodly percentage of Oregon’s alums.
The time seems right for a display of
enthusiasm which should mark a new era in
the history of Oregon’s student activities.
This paper lias always been tin* first to
point out that a “tradition” which is placed
or retained in service by force ceases to be a
tradition. It has also indicated frequently
that a great many foolish things grow un
about a university which add little to either
its cultural or educational programs.
Apparently, however, (because its lack is
widely recognized) Oregon lias not in the pasr
few years hacked its representatives and
taken as much pride in its activities as it
should. The energetic way in which every
phase ol the work on this homecoming pro
gram has been pushed indicates a marked
revival of interest on the part of students,
faculty, and alumni.
The rally committee's highly important
job is to unify and direct that enthusiasm,
granting it exists. It’s a big job. Upon the
committee’s efforts will depend the real and
lasting success of the whole homecoming pro

New Libe Murals
Tlu' latest scientific inventions nnd the wonderful achievements^!
the various fields of art didn’t “just happen.” They are the products
of many generations of many people, each who has given His life to
n certain type of work in order that the people of his generation and
wi Liiujsf iu iiuuf mu.;m uvr a
pier and easier life, said Albert f
Runquist, co-artist with Ids broth- I
or, Arthur, of the murals which (
were hung in the library recently, j
The murals, depicting the growth f
of the arts and sciences from pre- ,
historic to present times, were
humr on the walls of the stairways ,
leading up to the second floor of (
the building. The Runquist broth- f
ers, both Oregon graduates, are f
here from Portland to supervise j
the hanging and to finish the mu- t
rals in time for the dedication of j
the library Saturday. I
Common to both murals are cen- 1
tral figures of a man and a tree, t
In the mural recording the ad- f
vancements of the arts, the man *
kneels with his head thrown back -
to look to the top of the tree which v
is in flower. The flowers are rep
resentative of the beauty or the i
goal toward which man is striving, t
In the second mural he is shown r
with his head bowed rising from a i
kneeling position. The tree in this t
mural is a fruit tree. It is inter- t
eating to note that the trees are t
shown with no tops, only with the T
beginning of the branches and fruit t
and flowers. This is the artists' c
method of showing that invention 1
and advancement are not ended, a
Jewels in Mural a
On either side of the roots of l<
the tree, in small pockets under a
the ground are found precious jew- s
els, garnets and amethysts, in the
case of the arts, and minerals, t
coal and iron in the science mural, t
Growing on either side of the tree t
are flowers in the first mural and b
corn and grain in the second. In t»
both cases these represent some of t
t h e fundamental requirements o
needed in arts and sciences.
Development of Art
The story of the development of r
art begins when man first started n
to sew skins with bone needles.
His crude attempts at drawing,
culnturing, weaving:, dveing mn
erinls, nnd making: pottery were
onstantlv improved. Gradually
nusicnl instruments were'added to
is accomplishments. This cultural
dvancement was preserved by
nenks in the monasteries.
Finally the Renaissance with its
evival of the ancient arts and add
ion to that knowledge, the art of
lass blowing, and silver work
iaved the way for the modern arts,
lere we find people prominent in
he fields of art portrayed. Tn this
ieture one may see Paderewski,
ternhardt, and Charlie Chaplin,
'he advent of the radio is also
oted here. The final picture shows i
student playing, a score from

The discovery of fire and the
ses to which it might be put is
he starting point for the science
mrals. From the discovery of the

raced scientific discoveries

John Henry Nash, San Francis
co printer anil main speaker for
tiie dedicatory services of the Uni
versity's new library, has combed
the great centers of the Old World

Talks Before Club
Dr. Victor P. Morris, dean of
the school of business administra
tion, spoke on business problems
of the twentieth century in a talk
before the Lions club Wednesday
Dr. Morris pointed out how me
chanical and physical problems had
been dominant in the nineteenth
century, but the human factor has
been coming to the front for ma
jor consideration in the twentieth
century. This change is partly due
to the great increase in population
and more complex society result
Dean Morris stressed the neces
sity of developing more good will
and of realizing there must be im
provement in human relations.

Pre-Gam e Spiri tHits
Top as Studes Clash
Traditional rivalry is coming back! And) with it comes much
slinging of mud, paint, and gasoline. Word from Oregon State college
reveals that the campus in Corvallis was invaded by vandals who
literally overwhelmed the police force and painted several campus
buildings with green paint.
Of course, no aspersions were
cast, but a radio commentator yes
terday announced over KOAC that
the painting consisted of hierogly
phics interpreted as U. of 0., Ducks,
etc. He also estimated that dam
age would mount to at least $500.
Alo that college authorities would
punish the vandals if caught.
Which all adds up to the fact
that 15 cops were placed on duty
here last night to guard any and
all features of the campus which
do not weigh more than six tons
and which are not implanted twen
ty feet into the ground.
Not only are there cops on duty
but no less than 200 freshmen, all
armed with ball bats and glints in
their eye to do or die for their old
alma mater. Campus statues, the
recently transplanted lawn, the
bonfire, and the "O” on Skinner’s
butte are being protected.
Oregon State reports that the
marauders not only did a very fine
paint job on the campus but poured
gasoline in the middle of the cam
pus lawn and set a match to it
which resulted in a huge bare spot
resembling an O.
Viva la Traditionale!
Sophomore Class
Bill Dalton Appoints
Group to Decorate
Oregon Campus
Homecoming Chairman Bill Dal
ton today appointed the sophomore
class to take charge of decorating
the campus in Oregon's colors, to
further extend the welcome royal
planned for all alumni and grads
this weekend.
The campus will be completely
adorned with yellow and green
streamers making giraffe-like trees
and telephone posts; the streets
will be painted yellow and a huge
banner will be strung across Thir
teenth and Kincaid.
Vandals Ignite
(Cnntimicd from paqc nnc)
material around town should be
offered to the committee.
Collection of materials, which
amounts to the most important
part of the work to be done, will
start promptly at 8 o'clock, and
actual construction will start
shortly afterward. Part of the ma
terial—old sections from bleach
ers will be stood on end and pack
ing cases, hay, excelsior, and all
the trimmings will be heaped on
Nearly one hundred gallons of oil
and gasoline are ready to be poured
on before the pile is lit.
Frosh Challenged
Oregon frosh were challenged
last night when a phone call was
put through from Corvallis to Bill
Dalton, weekend chairman, asking,
"Would the Oregon frosh like us
to send over someone to help them
build a real bonfire? We don’t
want to make your frosh feel bad
or anything, but if we don't get
that rubbish burned up tonight,
we might be able to come over
and show you how a bonfire should
be built."
Construction will be under the
direction of freshman Wally Ross
mann and Stan Davis. Showing the
spirit of cooperation which the
townspeople feel toward this event,
the city council has given the use
of its tractor to aid in construction.
