Three Days off
Before Exams
At Indiana U.
By ANNA MAE HALVERSON
A pre-exam break has been giv
en the business administration stu
dents at Indiana university in the
form of a three-day “reading pe
riod’’ just before the semester ex
aminations during which all class
es in the business school are dis
missed.
Giving students an opportunity
to review courses, this system re
leases them from having to pre
pare daily assignments for the
three days preceding final exam
inations. All late work may be
made up, term papers completed
and reviewing done before the
eight-day examination period be
gins.
The University of Texas has
been considering a similar system.
Voted on favorably by the college
of arts and sciences, the plan, in
cluding a ten-day reading period
before exams, must now be sub
mitted to the general university
faculty, which is to meet May 17.
Could It Be?
Drop here a tear for Johnny,
His heart was none too strong;
It was a shock that killed him—
Too great to bear for long.
It seems his course required
.Some reading to be done.
He sent his call slips to the stacks,
They filled them, every one.
■—Willie, University of
Washington Daily.

Submarine Zoology
Diving helmets and bathing suits
were correct classroom apparel
for the entire zoology class at the
University of Miami recently. As
a departure in their nature stud
ies, the class donned diving hel
mets and took turns exploring the
bottom of Silver springs at Ocala,
Florida. They photographed var
ious forms of marine life 29 feet
below the surface.
Busy Lawyers
Take Time Out
For 'Ball' Game
Law school students must
study very hard, much harder
than the common lot of scholars,
so the assertions of neophyte
barristers have claimed during
the past many years. And this
claim is their proffered reason
for maintaining a student body
and an honor roll listing separate
from the rest of the campus.
Law school examinations for
the term are scheduled to begin
next week. Why, then, inquired
visitors in Oregon’s second and
third floors last night, is it that
Reva Hearns, Frankie Nash, Tal
lant Greenough, and Jason Lee
were not studying last night at
the late hour of 7:30 ?
Investigators and the curious,
including Prof. Schumacher,
found the bar’s best having a
fast game of “work-up” outside
the Law Review offices, using a
tennis ball, a copy of the Oregon
Law Review, and a wastepaper
basket for equipment.
The game was called when the
paper-bound bat broke.
Music Students in
Classical Program
Woodwinds, Strings
Used in Recital
Last Night
A recital of woodwind and string
instruments was presented in the
school of music auditorium last
night by students of Mrs. Lora
Ware, professor of cello, and John
Stehn, assistant professor of mu
sic.
The ensemble program was
opened with a sonata by Brahms
for the clarinet and piano, given
by Mrs. A. C. Breyman at the
piano and Phoebe Breyman play
ing the clarinet.
Two movements of a Kotschan
scherzo and a selection by Piston
were given by a group of three mu
sicians, with Mayo Sorenson at the
flute, Charlotte Plummer playing
the clarinet, and Wendell Gilfry
the bassoon.
Miss Plummer again played with
Madge Conaway and Edith Farr in
a Brahms trio for the clarinet,
cello and piano.
Concluding the ensemble pro
gram was a Vivaldo concerto, fea
turing Howard Jones at the cello
with Audrey Aasen, Jack Powers,
James Bailey, Mary Booth, and
Norman Gaeden forming a string
quintet accompaniment.

Pennant Chances
Fade As Cougars
Trip Ducks 3 to 1
Hardy Yields 8 Hits
Mates Make Boots;
Gordon Homers
Oregon’s Ducks were virtually
knocked out of a chance to tie
Oregon State’s high flying Bea
vers yesterday when Buck Bai
ley’s Cougars behind Louis McCol
lum’s two-hit pitching defeated'
the Ducks, 3 to 1 at Pullman.
The defeat is the Ducks’ fifth,
while the Beaver forces have
dropped only a single game. The
loss also dropped the Ducks back
into third place in the conference
standings, behind Oregon State
and the Cougars.
Bob Hardy, lanky southpaw,
went the route on the mound for
the Webfoots, but he gave up
eight hits in the eighth inning,
while his mates were committing
three errors and only collecting
two bingles, one Gordon’s third
home run of the two-game series.
The Cougars bunched their hits
in the second and eighth innings
to produce their three runs. Their
first two and winning runs were
