Relative to the $1250 appropria

portation of Oregon State cadets

“a question of expense was raised
here today when it was revealed

offered to provide the transporta

Libe Cases Feature
Four Unique Books
The new library bulletin boards
are featuring four topics of diver
sified interests. On the west side

Garden of Pinks.”

Cramming Reduces Chances
In Final Exams, Doctor Says
If the question of what do you do the night before an “exam” were
to be asked of every student on this campus, fully 90 per cent of them
would probably answer, “cram.”
According to Dr. Hayes this is one of the worst things that you can
do. “Plenty of rest will help you more than staying up all night.”
Many professors advocate that you see a movie the night before an
exam so that you will be relaxed for the test the next day.

tend that light foods take away
that sluggish feeling and aid in
making your mind more alert.
It is known that during, exam
week many students use benze
drine tablets and “No-Doz” tablets
to help keep them awake for their
cramming. These tablets, which
tend to sharpen the wits for a
while are described in various
magazines as being dangerous for
people with heart trouble or high
blood pressure. Dr. Hayes says
that many students have come to

complained of a sluggish feeling. A

benzedrine is also true of over-dos

The effects are hard on the sys

your exam, it has been determined.
A good night’s sleep is better than
anything else.
The following rules might well
be followed in preparing for exams:
1. Know your subject so well that
cramming isn’t necessary, 2. Eat
lightly of energy giving foods, re
tire early and get plenty of sleep,
3, Let the drugs alone.

per cent. The major cause for this
surprising rate of increase is that,
more 16-milimeter projectors are
to be found in the state. In the
last two years, the number of pro
jectors in Oregon schools has
jumped from 4 to 100.
All visual aid materials are
available for school, community,
and individual use. Clinics for the
purpose of acquainting Oregon ed
ucators with the latest classroom
films, projection equipment, and
visual instruction methods, have
been held' in the last week at the
three state normal schools, at the
Portland extension center, and at
the University. The visual educa
