Students Should
Study for Work
In a Democracy
U. S. college and university stu
dents should be given a broad
training for active participating
in a democracy, and not a special- j
ized training for work in govern
mental agencies.
This was the conclusion reached
by more than twro-score college
and university presidents after a
symposium on civic education at

Novel Pins ...
College men need no longer hes

Kemler Announces
Novel Queen Contest
Selection Committee
To Name Weekend
Royalist Is New
Queen-picking, 1938 style, is
the system detailed yesterday by
Zane Kemler, junior class presi
dent, for choosing the girl who for
three days will rule the campus
as queen of Junior weekend, May
6, 7, and 8.
Under the new system a selec
tion committee plays an important
part. The committee is composed
of five boys and five girls, picked
at random, and three members of
the art school faculty.
Each house will put up a girl
candidate, and this list, together
with any girls which the commit
tee feels ought to be added, will
appear before the committee this
Friday. Out of the total number,
five girls will be selected by the
committee to be put up to a pop
ular vote at the first of next week,
probably on Tuesday. ASUO mem
bership will constitute eligibility
to vote for the queen.
“The aim of this system, pat
terned somewhat after the one by
which Miss Oregon was selected
last year, is to find the girl who
has the poise as well as popularity
to best exemplify the office,”
Kemler said.

Library Browsing Room
Will Be Furnished Soon
In just six more weeks the much heralded University of Ovegan
browsing room in the new library will be finished down to the most
complete details of furnishings and decoration, according to informa
tion released yesterday by Miss Ethyl R. Sawyer, browsing room Ji
Part of the ojective in finishing the room in record time is to
make it available as the scene of traditional senior commencement
activities, Miss Sawyer pointed out.
The tomato colored leather chairs, which were returned to the fac
tory last week to be restuffed, will be restored to their places and th.a
suite completed with more chairs, davenports and lamps. Additional
tables are also a part of the finished scheme of furnishing.
Wall decorations have not yet been determined, but the decora
tion committee of the art department of the University under the di
rection of Miss Brownell Frasier, professor of interior design, are con
sidering woodcarvings to hang over the fireplaces at each end of tho
room, as a tentative part of the plan it was understood.
Only the imported Oriental rugs will fail to complement the har
mony of the room. The rugs are being made in China, and aside frorni
the long process of their manufacture, the national distress of t.o.€>
Chinese will probably delay delivery.
