Eat Human Hair?
Prof Says So
By ANNA MAE HALVERSON
Food from human hair—that’s
one of the experiments Dr. James
C. Andrews of the University of
North Carolina and his colleagues
have been working up for the past
few months. What’s more, they
have been successful.
They dissolve the hair by boil
ing it in dilute acid, decolorize it
with a charcoal treatment, re
move the “waste material and or
ganic matter” and get a product
which is called cystine. Cystine is
one of several amino acids com
posing proteins and is digestible as
food by humans and animals.
Dr. Andrews explained that only
on rare occasions is cystine harm
ful. It may cause gall stones.—
Daily Tar Heel.

come oiled.—Silver and Gold.

Useful in Construction of
'Private Lives’ Scenes
By E. A. JONES
From a modern Paris apartment to the jungles of the West Indies
... it may sound a bit far-fetched, but it’s no trick at all for members
of the University theater workshop, who build complete sets for pro
ductions of Oregon’s drama department.
The six women and one man who spend two days each week
at the theater workshop on Onyx street can turn out a “set" depict
ing scenery from any part of the
world, from any century, around
the plot of almost any drama you
could name, with no more concern
than a newspaper staff takes to
put out your newspaper day after
Two New Sets Ready
The University workshop is just
completing two rather remarkable
sets for Noel Coward’s “Private
Lives,” first 1939 production of
the drama division, scheduled for
February 3, 4, and 8 in Johnson
hall. The set for the first act
represents two adjacent balconies
of a hotel on the coast of France.
The scene is an appealing one,
with white wrought-iron furniture
behind the stone banisters form
ing the background for action
which takes place in the dusk of
the cocktail hour.
Apartment Scene Effective
The set for the second act de
picts the interior of an apartment
in Paris, and is very effective from
a dramatic point of view, because
of the feature of a central eleva
tion which gives a distinctive area

setting of “Emperor Jones,” star

$160,000 Project; f
Rock Causes Delay
Slowed down to a figurative
walk by a week of tough going
through unexpectedly hard rock,
work on the new $160,000 humani
ties building yesterday neared
speeding up again as excavation
crews dug and pounded at the last
few feet they will have to clear
out before the concrete can go in.
Some Rock Left
All of the rock will not be out
until the middle or end of next
week, construction supervisors pre
dicted yesterday, but they expect
to begin pouring concrete footing
before the end of the week.
The rock which accounted for
the delap was not totally unlooked
for, it was admitted, but the plan
of the building made pouring im
possible until all the digging was
done. Pouring must begin from the
west end, it was explained, in or
der to force standing water to
drainage in the east end of the ex
cavation, and it was in the east
end that the rock was encountered.
Project Has Hard Luck
The project, on which actual
W'ork was begun January 3, is now
approximately two weeks behind
schedule. Delayed at first by sev
eral days of bad weather, progress,
was retarded by the present rock]
problem, which adds a week to ten
days, making the total at least two

be the footing, with the form-fill

To Be Wesley Topic
Hayes BeaTI, Wesley club direc
tor, will lead the last of the series
of meetings on the Sermon on the
Mount Sunday evening. “The Ser
mon on the Mount and Our Day”
is the topic.
The club will again join the Ep
worth league and adult group in
the worship service in the church
auditorium at 7 o'clock, adjourn
ing to the club room at 7:30.
SO THAT’S THE REASON
In “The Art of Bundling” the
author, Dana Doten, explains that
factors contributing to the bundl
ing technique were the isolation
of country life, the infrequency of
leisure, the relative costliness of
light and fuel, and the meagerness
of household furnishings.
Official organization of the new
ly-formed Cosmopolitan club was
completed with the adoption of a
constitution presented at the meet
ing yesterday. Minoru Yasui, pre
siding officer, read the constitution
to the group.
Plans were made to meet Thurs

Free Throws; OSC

Slats Gill’s baffling Beavers

natives by actually trying to
gallop with Oregon’s basket

“gallopingest” team —at Mc

But in the end it was Oregon,

An approximate 6000 customers
were first amazed and then pleased
by the tactics of Gill’s lowly quin
tet which led at half-time, 19 to
14, and kept a nose ahead for
almost ten minutes after that.
The Beavers cast off 51 times to
70 for the Webfoots and hit a far
greater percentage of their shots.
They got 15 field goals to 13 for
Oregon and had an edge in shoot
ing, .294 to .185 by average.
Hobby Hobson’s Ducks made it
their seventh conference victory in
eight starts by collecting 20 points
on 31 free throws to only 9 in 18
